 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.

Hundreds lined up for the Back-to-School Information Fair held over the weekend. For hours, the crowd
stretched outside First Baptist Church and down the street. Inside the line was just as long, winding its
way through the church and fellowship hall where families filled up free backpacks with school supplies
and information from local schools, businesses and other participating organizations. Waiting for them
at the end was free food, entertainment and a chance to win some valuable gift cards. For more on this

Following new allegations of
the beating of an inmate at Union
Correctional Institution between Aug.
15 and Aug. 16, Florida Department
of Corrections Secretary Walt McNeil
ordered the Inspector General's Office
to launch a full investigation.
The investigation led to the discovery
that on Aug. 15, a 47-year-old white
male inmate allegedly threw feces at a
correctional officer, after which he was
removed from his cell and assaulted
numerous times by staff members over"
a two-day period.
In a press conference held on Aug. 21,
McNeil stated that the incident came to
light more than a day after the alleged
abuse took place when a DOC employee


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Bradford County is dipping into
its reserves to balance the budget for
2009-10, and it forgoes new positions
or pay raises for existing employees.
Reserve funding will be used to
balance the general fund, while a store
of fiscally constrained funds from the
state will balance the budget for the
road department.
When the county commission sat
down for workshop last Thursday,
the county was still facing a nearly
$1 million deficit in its $34.1 million
budget for next year.
Grappling with a lack of funding,
most commissioners could not justify
hiring a new employee in the road


reported the inmate's injuries.
At first, the inmate claimed he had
been injured in a fall. It was only after
he had transported outside the prison
for medical care that he said he had
been beaten.
"We suspected all along that the
injuries were not consistent with a fall,"
said McNeil. "The inmate's injuries
are serious and are reprehensible.
I'm grateful to the employee for
acting appropriately in reporting this
horrendous incident."
Four UCI correctional officers and
two sergeants were placed on leave
pending results of the investigation.
In addition, one contract and three
temporary nurses were .dismissed for
failure to report the abuse.
See UCI page 12A


department, even though the workload
apparently has the department
stretched thin.
The department has been assigned
to help prepare roads for paving on
top of regular and emergency road
maintenance, mowing, etc. On top
of that, Commissioner John Wayne
Hersey said the crew has one member
in the hospital, and he recommended
creating a new position for an
equipment operator.
The estimated cost in salary and
benefits to the county was $40,000.
Hersey suggested the money be pulled
from the road department reserve
funding.

meeting during which the ..-,

thousands of dollars.

Members of the Bradford County Education Foundation rolled up their sleeves and served breakfast to hundreds
of returning school employees, and that was just the beginning. At the school district's back-to-school meeting last
week, the foundation gave away tens of thousands of dollars it had raised for local education, including $19,000 in
classroom mini-grants to support innovative teaching programs. The foundation is also supporting implementation
of the Positive Behavioral Support program by giving schools $2.50 for each high school and middle school
student enrolled this year and $1.50 for each elementary school child. The total award was around $8,000. The
Bradford-Union Career Technical Center was given $1,000 to purchase lumber for its construction program and
oxygen for the welding program. Another $500 was pledged by the foundation in support of the annual spelling
bee, and finally, the foundation is giving $5 to every student at each elementary school so they can purchase books
from their school's book fair. That was worth another $8,000, bringing the total amount of money given or pledged
by the Bradford County Education Foundation to more than $36,000.

Starke commission election is Tuesday


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Voters from Starke District
4 will have an important
decision to make this Tuesday
as they go to the polls to select
their representative on the city
commission for the next four
years.
Polls will be open at Starke
City Hall from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
on Tuesday, Sept. 1. City hall is
located at 209 N. Thompson St.
There are two candidates in
the District 4 race.
Commissioner Tommy
Chastain is seeking reelection.
He touts the commission's
accomplishments, including
reducing the city workforce
without a reduction in services,
upgrading the electric system,
establishing a fuel adjustment
stabilization account, lowering
fire insurance ratings, ongoing


upgrades to the sewer system,
paving streets, and supporting
successful events downtown.
Going forward, Chastain said
he wants to work with the county
on consolidating some services
and with municipal partners to
lower electric bills.
"This won't happen overnight,
but I am committed to focusing
on viable options," Chastain
said.
He has also talked about
revamping the city retirement
system to save money and
working toward future projects
that include placing an outdoor
amphitheater at the old power
plant site.
Chastain has billed himself as
the commissioner who tells it like
it is. His opponent, Jimmy Epps,
is calling himself "the people's
choice" and is hoping that voters
looking for change will turn out
and vote for him.


"The purpose of my candidacy
is simply the high cost of utilities
and how some of the city
commissioners vote on utility
contracts and other items that
are not reviewed or understood,
causing part of the financial
mess we are experiencing in the
city:' said Epps, who is a former
city police chief.
In meeting with voters of the
district, he has heard they are tired
of high utility bills, including
the often misunderstood fuel
adjustment charge, and believe
commissioners don't understand
these matters themselves. Some
don't even know their city
commissioner.
"If I am your commissioner,
you will know me and I will
know you," Epps said.
As of Aug. 2, there were 547
voters in Starke District 4.

Johns also noted the company
had built around 50 buildings in

After some additional
discussion about experience and
reviews of projects the contractors
had completed, Johns was asked
bluntly why the recommendation
was not to award the project to the
low bidder. County Manager Brad
Carter tried to intervene with a
diplomatic explanation, saying
essentially Ford had provided
no references to comment on its
experience with metal buildings.
Lasteel on the other hand
provided an abundance of
reference information, he said.
Ford's owner said the company
is licensed general contractor,
which is good for metal buildings
as well as skyscrapers. He said
if metal building experience
was. a requirement of awarding
the bid, that requirement should
have been disclosed in the bid
documents.
Carter said that he understood.
the point and that's why he didn't
want to infer anything negative
by talking about references and
experience. What the county
was looking for, however, was a
reference who could specifically
state that the chosen contractor


permissible to award the contract
to a company that was not the low
bidder based on references. The
attorney said there was sufficient
reason on the record for the
decision, and the commission
.voted unanimously to award the
project to Union Lasteel.

contract was renewed for two
more years.

Do you have tropical
soda apple in your
pasture?

A COLUMN BY TIM
WILSON
Bradford Extension Director

Tropical
soda apple
(Solanum
viarum) is
an invasive
weed that
is . common
throughout .
Florida, and"E l
can infest a
pasture in' --
as little as
two years.
Tropical soda apple reduces
forage production and lowers
-stocking rates. Obviously, this is
an invasive weed we do not want
hanging around our farms.
Tropical soda apple can reach
heights of three to six feet. It is
a broad-leafed plant with thorns
up to 0.4 inches long and its
fruit looks like a small round
watermelon when immature then
turns yellow at maturity. Tropical
soda apple has white flowers
with yellow stamens and usually
blooms from September to May.
Found in typically wet soils,
TSA is usually concentrated in
common feeding and lounging
areas within a pasture.

during a ceremony in June.
The Able Trust, also known as
the Florida Governor's Alliance
for the Employment of Citizens
with Disabilities, is a public-
private partnership foundation
established by the Florida
Legislature in 1990. Its mission
is to be the leader in providing
Floridians with disabilities
fair employment opportunities
through grant programs, public
awareness, policy review and


control methods are available for
tropical soda apple. Herbicides
such as Milestone and Forefront
have been denic trol dense
stands o tflfSe -'emergent
plant growth, while Remedy
can be used in combination
with mowing. Biological"control
methods such as the TSA beetle
have been used for the past
several years with some success;
however, it is not efficient in
controlling dense stands of TSA.
To control the spread of tropical
soda apple, pasture managers
should clean equipment when
leaving infested pastures. When
buying cattle, they should be
quarantined for more than six
days to allow any seeds in their
gut to be expelled in a controlled
area before being released to
pasture. (Source: UF/IFAS EDIS

education, and fundraising.
Since its establishment, The
Able Trust has awarded more
than $24 million to individuals
with disabilities and nonprofit
agencies throughout Florida for
employment-related purposes,
enabling more than 2,000 Florida
citizens with disabilities to enter
the workforce each year.

Camp Cherry

Lake memories

will last a

lifetime
4-H Camp Cherry Lake in
Madison \\s host to 43 Bradford
countyy youth the week of July
13. The kids spent five days and
four nights swimming, meeting
others, developing skills such as
independence and cooperation,
learning about their environment,
and-most of all-having a great
time.
Teen counselors prepared for
this event for months prior to
participating. They attended a
weekend certification program
and a series of meetings
throughout the spring. Campers,
ages 8-12, were assigned to
cabins with at least one trained
teen counselor. All youth learned
a great deal about getting along
with others, making decisions,
working as a team and being
responsible.
There were eight college-age
resident staffers that provided
camp structure and enthusiasm.
Counselors led songs, taught
3cti cities and monitored the flow
of the week. They also played'
a critical role as mentors and
friends.

At the end of the week.

with a special candle lighting

excited about all that the3 have
accomplished and are sad to
be leaving new friends behind.

FHP enforcing

Move Over

Law
"Move Over Florida!" It's not
just common sense and courtesy,
it's the law. Florida Highway
Patrol Troop B Commander,
Maj. Richard Carpenter has
announced FHP will target
violators of the Move Over Law
from today through Sept. 7.
The Move Over Law requires
drivers to move over one lane
whenever a emergency vehicle or
tow truck on the side of the road
has its lights activated. If moving
, . over is not a viable option, drivers
must simply slow down to 20 mph
below the posted speed limit.
"It is not only important that
we enforce the traffic laws, but
also that we make every effort
to educate drivers to make them
awareof what those laws are," said
Carpenter. "Florida's emergency
workers have families that expect
to see them home safely at the
end of their shift. We owe them
S the opportunity to perform their
S duties without being struck by a
passing motorist."
Florida adopted the law in
2002 in recognition of the several
occasions when emergency
response personnel were killed


or injured while stopped on
the side of the highway. In the
past decade, more than 150 law
enforcement officers nationwide
have been killed by passing
motorists while performing their
duties on our highways.
The Move Over Law
enforcement effort is part of a
series where the Florida Highway
Patrol focuses on a specific traffic
law and cites anyone caught
violating that law. The series is
called "Be Smart, Drive Smart
Florida!" The Florida Highway
Patrol is partnering with law
enforcement agencies across the
state from now through Labor
Day to raise awareness and
enforcement of the Move Ovei
Law. During the operation, law
enforcement officers will work
together along busy highways
and interstates to stop those who
violate the law.

Starke and rec board talk program fees


Some programs cut

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Starke City Commission
approved a partial list of
recreation programs last week,
and it will readdress the list
and fee schedule following its
meeting with the county on
recreation funding.
Other programs were cut
entirely.
Topping the list of eliminated
programs was basketball, which
had 87 participants, according
to Fiscal Year 2007-08 numbers.
Also.on the chopping block were
soccer (just 14 participants), flag
football (26 participants), and the
pilot kiddie camp for 3- to 5-year
olds (17 participants).
With the exception of
basketball, these were the
least popular programs. The
recommendation to cut them
came from the recreation board.
Programs recommended
for continuation included the
$10-a-week after-school camp,
the summer day camp, adult
softball (summer- and fall),
summer softball, Babe. Ruth
baseball and softball (spring and
fall), and the senior citizens club.
The city commission could not
definitively set participant fees
for most of the programs without
knowing what, if any, amount the


county commission was going to
contribute to fund recreation.
The city has approached the
county for support, not only for
the construction of a new facility,
but for ongoing operational costs
based on the fact that 70 percent
of rec program participants live
outside the city limits,
Without that support, the
city commission is considering
raising fees for participants who
live outside of the city, perhaps by
as much as 50 percent or more.
The fee schedule presented to
the commission for approval did
not include those higher fees,
however. The recommended fees
were as follows:
* After-school club for ages
6-13-$90 a semester per
child ($10 a week) plus the $10
application fee. It runs from
August to May, with registration
taking place during the summer
period.
* Summer day camp for ages
6-17-$300 per child for the
eight-week program, which runs
from June 'through August.
* Babe Ruth baseball and
softball-$75 per participant
ages 4-17 for the 8-week spring
league, which runs from March
through May. Register in January
and February.
* Babe Ruth baseball and
softball-$50 per participant
o ages 4-17 for the 6-week fall
league, which takes place in
October and November. Register


in August and September.
* Summer softball-$45 for the
six-week league for participants
ages 4-17, which takes place in
June and July. Register March
through May.
* Adult softball-$15 per
player ages 13 and up, plus the
$15 per game umpire fee. A
$7.50 scorekeeper fee is optional.
These fees apply to the six-week
summer league, which takes
place in July and August, and the
six-week fall league, which takes
place in September and October.
Register in the weeks leading up
to each season.
* Senior citizens club-a year
round program that is free to
participants.
The board could not postpone
approval of the entire list because
the after-school program had
been advertised and was set to
begin. Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner moved to approve the
afterschool program and fees for
the first semester only, which the
board approved 4-0.
The remaining items will be
addressed following the city's
workshop with, the county
commission, which took place
this week. (See related story.)
There was discussion about
whether the fees proposed,
regardless of the participants'
addresses, were enough to cover
the city's costs. Commissioner
Travis Woods said participants
should be charged enough to


City, county sit down to discuss recreation


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The city of Starke did not
receive a blank check from the
Bradford County Commission
to support recreation, although
the county has pledged in-kind
services and potential future
support for a new recreation
facility and recreational
programming.
The joint meeting of the
commissions Monday began
with bad news as the possibility
that both boards could pursue
Community Development Block
Grants,..toJund ~the recreation
facility)': u( itayled.. Though
eligible for "up "to $750,000,
Christa Pusateri of Bailey, Bishop
and Lane, a civil engineering
and planning firm, said that
without rule changes, the county
would not be able to apply for
that money with the intention of
spending it on a project within
the city limits.
The city is eligible for up. to
$700,000 in CDBG money, or it
would be if it could close out its
current CDBG grant for sewer
work before the end'of the year,
which does not seem likely.
The hope was that both
boards pursuing funds on a joint
recreation project would increase
the chances for funding.
Then architect Paul Stressing
brought the boards up to date
on the designs for the proposed
buikling, which include a pared
down $800,000 version with
room to grow as well as the
original "master plan" that would
cost more than $1 million to
construct.
The county discussed the
budgetary issues it was facing,
including lost revenue and its
current reliance on funding
reserves to close out the current
year and balance next year's
budget. But with talk of funding
restrictions came some creative,
if not downright strange,
ideas. For example, given the
Department of .Community
Affairs rule against the county
spending grant funds in the city
limits, it was suggested that the
site at Edwards Road where the
city plans to build the facility be
detached from the city limits.
Doing so would require


the consent of some adjacent
landowners as well, all of who
would lose their city residency-
something they might gladly
give up along with paying taxes
to the city.
It was pointed out that the city
was not the only government
coming up short of funds to build
facilities. County Commissioner
Ross Chandler mentioned that
cuts in state funding means
additional money the county was
expecting to construct a senior
center was not coming. That has
left the county with a $500,000
grant it might have to return.
This, too, got wheels turning
as Chrissy Allen, a recreation
board member, suggested the
projects be combined. After all,
the recreation department has a
program for senior citizens, she
said.
Aside from the fact that the
combining the projects would
involve meshing two quite
different objectives-providing
a recreation space for youth and
a social sanctuary for senior
citizens-there were some
other logistical issues with the
suggestion. First, the county's
matching contribution for the
.grant was the land it owns behind
the health department.
This revived talk of giving
the Edwards Road property up
to the county so it could be used
as a substitute for the health
department land, but the second
issue was the lack of guarantee
that any suggested changes in
county's plans for that grant
money wouldn't result in the
state snatching the funds.
Still, City Commissioner
Carolyn Spooner promoted the'
idea of a joint facility, saying
seniors . could evert become
involved as youth mentors.
Mayor Wilbur Waters said
even if a construction solution
could be found, that was just
the beginning. Money would
be needed to staff the facility,
maintain it, pay for utilities and
insurance;, etc. Grants won't
cover those costs, he said.
Because the percentage of
county residents of outside
the city limits participating in
recreation is so disproportionate,
the city is considering raising
the fees for those participants.


Waters said this could make
participation unaffordable for
many families.
When this was discussed, no
specific objection was raised,
although County Commissioner
Eddie Lewis pointed out that
the county had upheld its
responsibilities under prior
interlocal agreements without
expecting more from the city
when the cost of providing
services went up.
Chandler said there were a
number of interlocal issues the
county and city work on that
need to be addressed. Recreation
in the city is one of them. At the
same time. people are looking to
the county commission to move
services like recreation out into
the county. These things are
going to take time, particularly
when they involve locating
revenue and building new costs
into the budget, he said.
Asked if the boards would be
willing to support a tax increase
to support recreation, neither
set of commissioners seemed
interested. Such a thing would
only be possible with the consent
of taxpayers, they said, and
putting such questions on a ballot
is usually not successful.
In the end, all the county
commission could promise right
now were in-kind services if
the city undertakes a recreation
construction project. Both sides,
however, expressed mutual
appreciation over the willingness
to work together on this and other
issues.


cover costs. That has not been
the case, and as far as the after-
school program is concerned,
$10 a week is the most that can
be charged 'unless the city's
program and employees are
certified in childcare, according
to Recreation Department
Director Alica McMillian.
They disagreed, over whether
or not the city was losing money
by supporting recreation. Woods
pointed to the money that the
city was putting into recreation
that was not being recouped
through user fees and was thus
not available to be used in other
areas.
For example, in 2007-08 user
fees for the summer program-
$30,400-did not cover all of the
program's expenses. According
to the recreation department,
almost $22,000 more was needed
from the city budget to cover the
program. Charging $345 per
participant instead of $200 would
have made up the city's costs.
Spring baseball and softball
was the most popular program,
and'according to the recreation
department, the city had to
contribute almost $40,000, while
user fees set at $75 per participant
only brought in around $23,000.
The city would have had to more
than double fees to close to $185
per participant in order to totally
cover its costs.
Similar hikes in user fees


would be needed to reduce the
city's contribution to recreation.
Otherwise the city-or the city
and county working together-
will have to decide how much
program fees can continue to be
offset by taxpayer dollars.
The recommendations coming
out of the city commission's last
workshop were also approved by
the board. This included having
the attorney draft revisions to
the recreation ordinance that
clarify the recreation board is
an advisory.'board and not a
special governmerit district, and
providing that revenue from
recreation department programs
and fundraisers be deposited in a
special account controlled by the
commission, not the rec board.
The changes will not be
in effect until the ordinance
revisions are formally approved.
One concern of the recreation
department was alleviated
when the commission officially
designated around $630,000 set
aside for a new recreation facility
specifically for that purpose.
The designation is not binding,
meaning that it can be changed if
the need arises, but it does offer
some assurance that the money
that was said, to be earmarked
for building construction will
ultimately be used for that
purpose.

Thomas retires after lifetime of serving community


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
One day, while reviewing
the estimated Social Security
benefits she would receive
upon retirement, Doris Thomas
said she realized it shows that
she has a 46-year work history.
"I started thinking about it,"
she said. "Lord, that's a long
time. I'm ready to retire."
Thomas did just-that, retiring
from her position at the Union
County Housing Authority on
Aug. 20.
Her long career leading to a
life of social services first began
at King Memorial Hospital in
Lake Butler when she was just
16 years old. Thomas said she
worked flex shift as a nurse's
aid and as a helper in the kitchen
where she took care of patient
food trays, changing bed linens
and cleaning rooms.
She then worked at the
University of Florida Bookstore
in Gainesville for about a
year before her application
at Lerner's Dress Shop was
approved. She started out
working the floor in sales, but
the head cashier position soon
came open and the position was
offered to Thomas.
She came back to work
locally at Lake Butler Apparel,
but during a pregnancy, she
found standing on her feet for
long hours to be difficult and
had to quit her job.
Not one to sit still for long,
Thomas began volunteering
during the summer feeding
program for children that
used to take place during the
weekdays at the Lake Butler
Community Center, but has
since moved to the individual
schools.
"I really enjoyed it, big
belly and all, out there running
around playing with all those
kids;" Thomas said.
Through contacts she made
while volunteering: she was
recommended for a job at
Suwannee River Economic
Council for a new pilot
homemaker's program. It was
here that Thomas began to
realize she had a knack for social


services work. She began her
more than 12 year career with
DCF as a case manager, going
into client's homes to assist
them with dressing, feeding
and light housekeeping.
Enjoying being able to
help others, Thomas said she
actually got into trouble for
going above and beyond what
she was supposed to.
She explained, "Other case
workers would report me. For
instance, I might fill in for
another employee's client one
day and when they came back
to work, the client would tell
them all the stuff I did-simple
things not necessarily on the
checklist of services such as
sweeping the porch, and my co-
workers would report me."
The best Thomas could tell,
her co-workers were upset
because she was unintentionally
making them look bad.
"They were content to go to
a client's residence and just sit
there and not do anything. If I
saw a need, I figured why not?
I wasn't spending any more
time there than I was supposed
to, so how can I get into trouble
for helping people?"
Eventually, Thomas was
promoted to the program's
director and the first thing she
did in her new position was
change the "checklist only"
way of doing things for case
managers.
While working at SREC,
Thomas also worked a
second job at the Handy Way
convenience store (now called
the Kangaroo store) on S.R. 121
in Lake Butler. She had worked
there just over two years when
the store was robbed while she
was on duty.
Not only did she quit the job
after that, she described the
ordeal as something that took
10 years off her life.
She was working the store
one night with another female
cashier when two black men
barged into the store with one
carrying what looked to her
like a machine gun, but was
actually a .306.
"They came in screaming,
hollering and cursing at us
and made ustget down on the


floor," Thomas said. "All I kept
thinking about was that I was
never going to see my kids
again."
The ladies completely
cooperated with the robbers,
who got the money from the
cash register and fled the store.
Not before Thomas got a good
look at them, though.
She remained visibly shaken
by the ordeal when one day
then Union County Sheriff John
Whitehead asked her father
how she was holding up.
When Whitehead was told
Thomas wasn't doing too well,
he invited her to stop by and
see him so he could talk to her.
Thomas said Whitehead
put his arms around her and
told her he knew she and her
14 siblings were raised with
brothers who were taught to
respect women. In her naivete,
she expected all black men to
treat other black women the
same way. She laughs about it
now, but it seemed to Thomas
that when the robbers walked
in the door and saw a black girl,
they should have changed their
minds and walked out.
'Welcome to the real world,
where you've got people out
there that don't care about you,
your color, or who your mama
is," Whitehead told her.
Once they were caught,
Thomas was all too happy to
identify the suspects in court.
"I was so mad when I saw them
sitting there," she said.
"When they robbed us, one
of them had braided hair, but in
the courtroom, he had his hair
all blown out. I knew what he
was trying to do, but I pointed
right at him and said, 'he's
the one that had the gun and
pointed at the other guy and
said,.'he's the one that took the
money out of the register.'"
Apparently the incident
ended up putting Thomas on
fire for keeping bad guys where
they should be because she then
went to work for New River
Correctional Institution. After
close to four years, she was
offered a job at the Department
of Children and Families (then
known as HRS).
At her office in Lake City,

Doris Thomas Is pictured with her staff at the Union County Housing Authority just
days before retirement. (L-R) were Karen Snyder, Jeannette Stoltman, Doris Thomas
(seated), Dwight Regar, Kevin Blanton, Alvin Jones and Buddy Austin. Not pictured
was employee Dave Fabalto.


Thomas started out as a public
assistance specialist before
being first promoted to a senior
public assistance specialist,
then as acting supervisor, and
eventually a welfare fraud
investigator. Thomas said the
welfare fraud investigator
was a new pilot program at
the -time and she was sent to
St. Petersburg for training at
Kentucky University. After
one year of experience, she
was able to apply for a license
as a certified state of Florida
investigator.
At one point during her 16-
year career at DCF, Thomas
said she remembers her five
kids were grown and finally
leaving the house. "I was
dancing around the hallway
.saying, I'm going to be free
at last and travel and enjoy
myself."
In a case of what her pastor
called empty nest syndrome,
Thomas said she felt compelled
to sign up for foster care
training, thinking she wanted
to be a foster mom. She was
just about to have some babies
placed with her when she took


pause and told them to hold off
so she could make sure it was
what she wanted to do.
'That's when my sister-in-
law got killed by a drunk driver
on her way to the hospital to
give birth and I took in my two
nephews," Thomas said.
"Of'course, there was no
way to tell how the kids were
going to react to losing their
mother," Thomas said, "so I
had no idea what I would be
facing." She said that for a
while, the children would have
nightmares every night and
she and her own older children
would get up to soothe them
and rock them back to sleep.
When a job opening came
up with DCF in Lake Butler,
Thomas said she took a
demotion and a cut in pay to
return to a public assistance
specialist so she could be closer
to home with the children who
desperately needed her. Thomas
also adopted two great-nieces
who were removed from their
parents' home by DCF
In 2004, Thomas lost her
husband, Eddie Thomas, to


cancer, followed by her sister,
Amanda Sinnones, who died of
breast cancer in 2006. Thomas
then took on the task of raising
her sister's three children.
Tragedy struck again in 2008,
when her daughter, Patrica
Edenfield, died of breast
cancer.
Currently still living with
her, are four children: three
who are attending Lake Butler
.Elementary School and one
who is at Union County High
School. She is also known as
"Nana" to her 15 grandchildren:
The oldest is 22, two are 19,
three are 18, three are 15, two
are 13, one is 11, and one
is two. She also has a set of
month-old twins as her newest
grandchildren.
"So you see, I'm ready to
retire and'spend time with the
kids," Thomas said. "And now,
I'm going to be at the schools
so much they are going to think
I work there."

After an extensive time in prayer, consideration and 46 years in the work
field, I made the decision to retire my position as executive director with the
Union County Housing Authority effective Aug. 16.
Although retiring, I will still be available with a willingness to assist the people
in the community in any way I can. As I pondered about ending this chapter
of my life, I strongly felt a sense of being as I begin to close one chapter
in my life and embrace a new one. I believe this new chapter will open up
an avenue that I've never experienced. I am truly looking forward to the
adventure and joumey that awaits me.
I will never forget the people-professionally and personally-who have
provided guidance to me over the years. I appreciate you! You are locked
away in my heart, never to be forgotten. I am forever grateful to my parents
for teaching me early in life the importance of self-respect and respecting
others. They taught me that true love includes loving yourself while loving
and embracing others. They also taught me that love is colorblind. I pray you
encounter the best that the world has to offer. Seize the moment to change a
life and make a career in something that:you love.
I shall never forget you.

Attorney discusses law and economy


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Attorney David Redfearn
spoke to the Keystone Heights
Rotary Club last week, tying
current trends in any criminal
or family law practice to the
economy.
Redfearn's presentation was
the latest in a year-long Rotary
perspective on Lake Region
businesses,government,schools
and civic organizations.
Redfearn, who moved
back to the area about a year
ago, reminded his audience
that several members of his
family had served as the club's
president in years past. He is
the local organization's newest
and probably its youngest
member.
Redfearn said his focus is
on criminal and family law,
and he had a different clientele
with different sets of problems
than if he were practicing in
Orlando or Jacksonville.
The young lawyer said that,
while real estate law was not
his area of specialization, he
does have a large number of
clients facing foreclosures.
This, Redfearn said, was the
local impact of the implosion
of securities investments, many
of them mortgage-backed


securities .
Compounding
the problem was
the past promise
of adjustable
rate mortgages,
which were
fine when
the mortgage
rates were
low. However,
many of those
mortgages
are now
beyond many
homeowners'
ability to pay.
To make matters
worse, many
middle-class
residents with
modest homes


David Redfearn


were now out of
work.
While some observers are
saying that the economy has
bottomed out and will begin
to rise, Redfearn said he is
skeptical.
Thirteen percent of all
homeowners across the U.S. are
now behind in their mortgage
payments, he said. That's up
148 percent from the same rate
during 2006-2008.
Thousands of homes have
already faced foreclosure filings
in Clay County, he added.


One cuppa joe...

BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
------------------ ^^^ ~ a�


Melrose resident Ter Stuber gets to the
office at 5 a.m. each morning and sets up
her work for the day. By 5:10 a.m., she
said last Monday, she's ready to receive
customers who start showing up at the curb
by 5:45 a.m.
Since last July, she has sold coffee from a
rolling table by the side of the road.
These days, she ,and her table are out
in front of the newly-opened Lake Area ;
Bakery Delights on S.R. 21. Because she's
at the bakery, customers can also order the
egg, cheese and ham, bacon or sausage
rolls or muffins to go with their morning
cuppa' java.
The breakfasts take an extra five minutes
or so, but to hungry, early-morning
commuters, it's worth the wait.
Around 6 a.m. last Monday, one car after
another pulled into the bakery parking lot.
The flow of traffic and coffee \vas steady. .
S"Any grandkids visiting this weekend?" ,
Stuber asked one Melrose customer,
a Gainesville dentist. "I know all my
customers by name," she told a bystander.
"I've seen you here, but I'm just TerI Stuber bell
getting around to stopping," said another customers say s
commuting customer from inside her van.
"This is just too cute," she added.
It's also not new. Stuber said the curbside concession was
actually started by Cherie McArthur and Cathleen Carter, who
first opened the former Take Me Places, around the corner on S.R.
26. The two women were killed in a motorcycle accident almost
five years ago.
During family discussions about what to do with the coffee shop
after McArthur's death, the morning coffee venue got bumped.
Dale Hodgkins moved it down the street to the Danish Brothers
Deli. Four years ago, Hodgkins told the Monitor that many
curbside customers were fishermen on the way to Santa Fe Lake.
The deli closed months ago. Hodgkins retired and moved to The
Villages.


The second
biggest group
ofissues facing
Redfearn' s
clients are
family or
domestic
m a t t e rs,
especially
d i v o rce',
matrimonial
affairs,
custody and
child support
issues.
Criminal
behavior in the
Lake Region is
mostly limited
to petty
thievery, drug
use, abuse and
trafficking,
Redfearn


said. His perception is that
local drug traffic is most
often methamphetanmines and
prescription or other non-legal
drugs.
Both divorce and crime are
recession-proof, and are always
present, he said, given that now\
50 percent of all marriages end
in divorce, recession or not.
In fact, the down economy
may make feuding married
couples delay a separation or
divorce, since one or the other


may have to leave, the home
and the cost of living a single
life can go up. However, the
longer the unhappy couples
stay together, the more prone
to domestic abuse they can
become.
He cited a comment by
Sheriff Rick Beseler at a Rotary
meeting earlier this year. While
the rate of local petty criminality
was remaining steady, Beseler
said, domestic violence, such
as child and spousal abuse was
climbing.
"One less-discussed effect
of the economy on the legal
profession, Redfearn said, was
state and local government
cuts to public prosecution and
defense offices.
As court funds are cut back,
fewer cases are brought to trial
or brought to trial in a timely
fashion. Redfearn said the
legal professions are starting
to press state legislatures not
to pass more bills declaring
more activities a crime, if
the legislature can't fund the
judicial system to prosecute
those new crimes.
Some types of petty crimes
may not be tried at all, he said.
Other criminals will be held for
trial for longer periods of time.

eves she's keeping a curbside coffee tradition alive. Her
she's providing services they couldn't commute without.

Stuber is now carrying on the tradition around the corner.
"They're all professional people," Stuber said of her current
customers in her Long Island accent.
"She works for the Farm Bureau," Stuber nodded toward a
customer pulling out onto the highway. "A lot of my customers
work for UF. I even get professors."
Stuber said she gets about 35 to 55 customers a day, Monday

Theressa residents learn to be firewise


Theressa area residents
and members of! the town's
volunteer fire. department
gathered last weekend for
a Firewise program, held at
the Hope Baptist Church's
Packham Fellowship Hall.
The meeting focused on
simple, inexpensive things a
homeowner can do to protect
their homes and property from
wildfire.
Representing the Suwanee
DistrictoftheFloridaDivisionof
Forestry, staffers and volunteers
like Wildfire Mitigation


Specialist Kurt Wisner and Jim
Harrell explained why some
homes burn and some don't.
They also covered what to do
before help arrives and the
characteristics of a "firewise"
home. A spaghetti dinner was
served after the program..
The forestry agents were
probably preaching to the
already converted. At one point
the audience was asked how
many were in the area during
what is now called the Dairy
Road Fire of 2007. Everyone
in the audience raised his or


her hand.
For a synopsis of a firewise
home, see below. For full
details on the Firewise program
and tips on making yours a
firewise home or community.

Tips for a firewise
home...
' A firewise home needs at
least 10 feet of defensible space
on all sides. In this space,
the landscape is managed to
prevent flames from reaching
the home.

Monitor Editor
The Keystone: Recreation
Association's fall softball,
baseball and T-ball season
-runs from October through
Thanksgiving.
President Shannon Bishop
and Treasurer Jennifer Fender
were at the Little Rain Lake
Park clubhouse last weekend,
signing up young players.
KRA offers teams for boys
and girls from four to 16 years
of age. Registration is $65 per
child. Skills and evaluations
will be held at the park on
Saturday, Sept 12, beginning
at 9 a.m. The first game is
scheduled the week of Oct. 3.
Bishop said last week that
registration for the teams was
still in the slow stage, but the
organization gets its biggest
boost once kids are back in
school.
The KRA had a very
successful spring season,
with more than 260 kids in
the program and a first-place
district winner, the Rookie All
Stars, who were undefeated in
the playoffs.
Best of all, though, Bishop
said was that she thought the
recreation program might
be over its rough patch

The Keystone Public
Library, the Melrose Public

Branch State Park have
pooled their resources for an
afternoon of family literacy,
dubbed the "cowboy and
cowgirl" event, at the Gold
Head Branch State Park on
Sunday, Sept. 3l.from 2-4
pm.
Entrance to the park is free
when you show your library
card or with a donation of a
new or gently used family-
friendly book!
There will be cowboy and


administratively speaking.
Several years in a row, KRA
was being swamped with high
electricity costs to provide
lighting for the park. In
addition, leadership threatened
to resign,each year unless new
blood stepped in to help keep
the organization going.
"I think what happens is that
people get involved as long
as their own kids are in the
program, but when the 'kids
get older, the parents are ready
to step down," Bishop said.
"Now all of us have kids in the
program again and we seem to
have plenty of parent support."
The organization has also
made changes, aligned with'
other organizations for use of
the park and negotiated with
Clay Electric to bring utility
costs down.
Still, KRA is looking for
donors to sponsor a child, a
team, or a field, with a variety
of contribution levels for each,
ranging from $50 to $1 ,000.The
youth sports group is always
interested in volunteers to help
out with teams, administration
or the concession stand.

he intended to bring the full

Commissioner Ross Chandler
said a new position would be a
recurring cost that will continue
to escalate.
Chairman Doyle Thomas
acknowledged the demands on
the road department, but said
he hated creating a new full-
time position. He said he might
agree to a part-time position if
,the department couldn't get by
without it.
"Like Mr. Chandler said,
next year it's going to clean our
clock," Thomas said.
Hersey said the request was
:based on the work that has been
put on the department's plate.
Adding an employee would
make a huge difference, he
said, adding that the board was
takirig a "don't. worry about
the mule, just load the wagon"
position.
He said he knows the road
department has and will rise
to the demands placed on it,
but at the same time, adding
an employee will allow them to.
better serve the people.
Chandler said the same could
be accomplished by hiring a
part-time or OPS worker, and
not pay even more for a full
salary and benefits package.

This is the second reported

allegation of abuse took place at

Five correctional officers at

caught on camera.
The officers-a lieutenant,
three sergeants and two officers -

Thomas did ask about the

Clerk Ray Norman said the
estimate was around $200,000,
and by the end of the workshop,
the board had not agreed to that
additional expense either.
The lack of a raise should not
come as a surprise. Previously
county officials have said 'that

correctional officers were put
on administrative leave while an
incident of excessive force against
an inmate was investigated.
Charges were eventually filed
against the officers who were all
fired on May 7.
Turning themselves in to the
Union County Jail and booked on
one count each of felony battery
on a prisoner causing malicious
great bodily harm were Sgt.
Daniel Ledwith, Officer Clayton
Lee, Officer Marcel Lizotte and
Officer Durrell Warren. Lee was
also charged with an additional
felony count of aggravated
battery with a deadly weapon.
The cases were referred to the
State Attorney's Office.
The officers involved in these
incidents had between six and 25
years of service with DOC.
In July of this year, former
FSP Officer Paul Tillis was
sentenced to three years in prison
for violating the civil rights of
an inmate. According to court
records, in August of 2005, Tillis
intentionally poured hot water
onto an inmate's chest as he lay
of the floor of his cell, feigning
a suicide attempt. Tillis did
not immediately seek medical
attention for the inmate.



budget. If that doesn't happen,
those reserve funds could be hit
pretty hard, he said.
The county not only has to
think about what it can afford
next year. The county still has
to finish out the current fiscal
year, Norman said, and revenue
is short. They won't know how
far short until the books are
closed sometime around the
end of October,
The commission is turning
to .reserve funds and special
revenue from the state to balance
the budget for next year.
The various departments
that made up the general fund
pushed expenditures $324,701
over available revenue, so
reserves will be used to make
up the revenue shortage there.
Meanwhile, the road
department was short $653,007.
That money will be drawn from
the fiscally constrained funding
the county receives from the
state. Including \ next year's
expected allocation of $600,000
in fiscally constrained funding,
the county has banked close to
$2.5 million.
Pulling the funding needed
to balance the road department
budget from that source will
still leave $1.8 million allocated
for infrastructure.

Bradford's Sims takes active role in combating cystic fibrosis


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
'Lawtey resident and 2009
Bradford High School
graduate Katelyn Sims wants
to make great strides toward
finding a cure for cystic
fibrosis and hopes her efforts
'in establishing a Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation Great
Strides walk in Bradford
County, as well as speaking
opportunities as the
foundation's newest
spokesperson, will help toward
that end.
The inaugural Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation Great
Strides walk in Bradford
County will take place
Saturday, Sept. 26, with
registration at 8 a.m. at Shands
Starke. The walk will begin at
9 a.m.
"It's exciting," Sims said. "I
look forward to it, to just see
how many people from the
community are going to get
together and help."
Raising money to help find a
cure for cystic fibrosis is
important to Sims. She was
diagnosed with the disease at.
the age of 4. She stays at the
hospital two weeks at a time
every two months, receiving
intravenous medication and
breathing treatments, and
undergoing respiratory therapy
and physical therapy.
"The doctors, they just start
coming in at 6:30 in the
morning. They come in all day
long," Sims said.
Still, Sims has made the
most of her .life, participating
in cheerleading andsoftball in
school and competing in
pageants (she was crowned
this -year's-_ Bradford-Union
Strawberry Queenr)--However,
she would like for there to be a
day when children can do
those activities and more
without having to go through
what she has because of cystic
fibrosis. That's why raising
money to fund a possible
medical breakthrough is sb
important to her, whether or
not she's around to take
advantage of that
breakthrough.
"They won't have to grow
up with all of the hospital stays
and doctors' visits," Sims said
as she envisioned a day when
there-was a cure. "They can
live normal life."
Life for Sims and her family

Queen pageant.


has been anything but normal.

A family's struggle
to find an answer
Leisa Sims, Katelyn's
mother, knew something was
wrong with her child. Trouble
was, she had a hard time
convincing doctors of that.
Katelyn was taken to the
doctor 27 times during the two
years prior to her diagnosis.
Her doctor and the two others
who worked out of the same
facility always seemed to say
the same things-bronchitis,
respiratory infection, flu,
oneumonia. Leisa said she had
no reason to question those
diagnoses at first.
"It was always something
that sounded legitimate," she
said. "They would put her on
an antibiotic. We'd go home
and she would get better."
Katelyn, though, would
always get sick again. Plus,
there were the coughing fits
that wracked her body when
Sshe woke up every morning.
She coughed until she turned
blue, Leisa said.
Then there was the fact that
Katelyn simply wasn't
growing. There was no change
in a year from the time she was
3 and a half, her mother said.
Katelyn weighed 23 pounds.
Katelyn's doctor merely said
Katelyn was petite, but after
the last seven visits to his
office, when Katelyn's
medication was constantly
changed, Leisa admitted she
did not -believe -the- -doctor
anymore and told him as
much. She lived with her
daughter. She was around her
all day. Something was wrong.
"He looked at me and told
me I was the most paranoid
mother he had ever seen and
that I needed to take the
medical advice being given to
me because he had thousands
of children he dealt with. I
only had two," Leisa said. "He
had the medical training and
the knowledge. I did not."
Leisa informed the doctor
she ' was taking Katelyn
elsewhere, but finding
somewhere else to take her
proved difficult. Leisa made
call to other doctors' offices,
but the soonest she could get
an appointment was a month
away.
"I just had this aching


feeling I didn't have a month,"
she said.
Leisa had an upholstery
business at the time and had
worked on the offices of Dr.
George Restea and nurse
practitioner Anne Perantoni.
She called Perantoni crying,
saying she felt she had
nowhere to turn. She asked
Perantoni if she could take a
quick look at Katelyn. She
agreed, and it was a quick look
indeed. Perantoni, within five
minutes, noted Katelyn's
clubbing digits-spread of
fingers and toes due to lack of
oxygen-deep chest cavity and
protruding stomach, which
prompted her to tell Leisa to
get Katelyn tested in
Jacksonville to confirm if she
had cystic fibrosis.
A sweat test confirmed
Katelyn had the 'disease.
People with cystic fibrosis
have an increased amount of
salt in their sweat, which Leisa
said one can observe in
Katelyn today.
"If you go by and take a
look at her after she's been out
in the sun for a half hour or so,

you will see what appears to be
sind on her forehead," Leisa
said. "It's actually salt crystals.
She sweats pure salt crystals."
Having cystic fibrosis is bad
enough, but Katelyn has had
some experiences along the
way that have been traumatic
for her, Leisa said. There was
the nurse who; unaware that


Katelyn had never had an IV
inserted before, did so without
using a topical numbing agent.
After that painful, scary
incident, Katelyn had to be
restrained by six nurses the
next three times IV lines were
inserted.
Another time, a nurse
making a home visit did not


perform a heparin lock flush
injection before administering
IV medication. Katelyn had to
go back to the hospital to have
a central line reinserted.
Leisa said. those IV
incidences caused Katelyn to
have nightmares for two years.
Then there was the time when
Katelyn was 12 and having a
PICC (peripherally inserted
central catheter) removed. The
last 4 inches of the line
,snapped. The result was that
Katelyn had to undergo a heart
catheterization. She had to be
resuscitated three times during
the process.
"For her to do everything
she does now is amazing to me
because of the things I've seen
her go through," Leisa said.
"Just the fact that she's even
halfway sane, honestly, is an
amazing thing."
Trying to' move forward and
live life as best as possible has
always seemed like the best
option to Katelyn. She spoke

KHVFD chief Jeff Mrwik
said the firemen are all too
familiar with the current
economic climate and the
hardship it has placed on
Lake Region residents.
On the other hand, Mrwik
said, the KHVFD provides
the best services available,

Now in their second year,
the Teaching Ambassador
Fellowships were created to
give outstanding teachers
leadership opportunities to
learn about national education
policy and to contribute their
expertise to those discussions.
The fellows, in turn, provide
outreach and communication
about federal initiatives to
other educators on behalf of
the Department ofEducation.
Through their efforts, the
fellows promote educators'

and encourage their input to
improve education policies at
all levels of government.
Nearly 1,400 applications
were submitted in an open
process in which public school
teachers and instructional
specialists from across the
country were invited to
provide essays demonstrating
their record of leadership,
impact on student achievement
and insight into education
policy from school and
classroom experience.
Applications were received
from teachers in every state,
working in rural, urban and
suburban communities,
teaching every grade and
instructional area in traditional
and public charter schools.
Said Ulmer, "This is truly a
unique opportunity. Most
importantly, I'll be able to
highlight the voices of
educators within the
community. My goal is to
weave our experiences into
state and national discussions
of education policy. Over the
course of the year, I'm also
looking forward to learning
more about policy and
performing outreach on behalf
of the U.S. Department of
Education.."

Work went on as usual for 202nd RED HORSE members during a unit compliance
inspection that reflected favorably upon the squadron.



202nd RED HORSE shines


during rigorous inspection


"RED HORSE, the Gators
got nothing on you. Zero areas
that did not comply. You did
an awesome job, and the
adjutant general will let the
governor know about this."
That was the assessment of
Florida Air National Guard
Commander Brig. Gen. Joseph
Balskus on a unit compliance
inspection completed on the
202nd RED HORSE Squadron.
Balskus said RED HORSE had
"zero areas that did not
comply. Only one other time in
RED HORSE history did they
have a.RED HORSE unit that
had zero areas that did not
comply, and that was 10 years
ago. The signage, landscaping,
foyer with the big-screen
television, attitude and, most
important of all, the heart-'it
all counted. I'm proud of each
and every one of you."
For 108 "mandays," 18
United States. Air Force
inspectors and eight observers
evaluated the RED HORSE in
logistics, supply, vehicle
maintenance, services and
many other areas. RED
HORSE Commander Col. Jack
Paschal said the squadron's
performance was "outstanding.
We had zero 'does not
comply'...and no findings."
(Does not comply/"findings"
would have been areas not in
compliance and/or significant
deficiencies).
Paschal said the inspection
team "dug very, very hard. The
average RED HORSE unit has
about six DNC (does not
comply) areas. We had zero.
The UCI team evaluated
everything. They dug, dug and
dug some more. They checked

compliance with Air Force
rules and regulations, as well
as domestic laws and public
laws.
"Unit compliance
inspections serve a purpose,
because they force us to be in
compliance with rules and -
regulations, which we always
try to do, of course, but there
are 'always little nuggets they
see because they're the experts
in that field. We did extremely
well for one reason: team. It's
always the team."
Chief Master Sgt. Douglas
Gilbert said the comments he
received from the inspectors
all had a consistent theme:
"Remarkable. Best we've seen
in 10 years. Obvious
preparation, great attitude."
Gilbert said an additional
positive factor was that "when
UCI team members went out
on the RED HORSE
compound, every Airman was
engaged, motivated,
working--pouring concrete,
building a wall-it was all
good stuff, and this was a very
rigorous UCI."
Chief Master Sgt. Larry
Linton thanked all . REDi
HORSE members for the hard
work they demonstrated during
the inspection and reaffirmed
feedback from the inspectors.
"They said all our personnel
were very professional and
added the difference from
other units they've inspected
was like night and day,"
Linton said.
Four RED HORSE teams
and seven Airmen were
selected as superior
performers. Team winners
included civil engineer

winners were Master Sgt.

had cystic fibrosis. Katelyn
said the mother's words
summed up how, she
approaches her life: "What can
you do? You don't have a
choice. You have to keep
going and keep thinking you
can do things. If not, you're
just going to give up and your
body will give up."

Life is more than
simply existing
Leisa said Katelyn believes
God gave people lives, so that
they could do something with
them rather than simply
existing. If you have a disease
or something else impacting
your life, "it doesn't mean
you'ree supposed to sit in the
corner and give up," Leisa
said. "You're supposed to keep
going."
Sure there have been many
frustrations in Katelyn's life.
It's hard for her to make long-
range plans because of the
time she has to spend in the
hospital. Sometimes, it seems
she gets sick at the worst
times, she said. She could riot
go off with her friends
anywhere for spring break this
year. She missed going to
church on Easter.
"It's very, very aggravating
because you never know,"
Katelyn said.
Yet Katelyn's determination
seems to overcome any
setbacks. She said she entered
the hospital earlier than she
normally would have at one
point last year so she would
not miss her high school
homecoming festivities. She
was part of the homecoming
court, plus she wanted to be
with the rest of her varsity
cheerleading squad as she was
a captain.
"I had 25 cheerleaders
counting on me to be there,"
Katelyn said. "I got put in the
hospital the week before just
so I could make it to
homecoming. I had to go right
back in after homecoming."
One hospital stay occurred
before she was set to compete
in a pageant. She found a
vacant room in the hospital
during evenings in which she
practiced her talent routine.
"I've pretty much been able
to do what I wanted to,"
Katelyn said of her many
activities. "I think softball was
the hardest thing for me to do,.
but I madeit. through it. It was
just.. allb that' running. lIn.i;
cheerleading, we had to run,
but it wasn't near as much as
we had to run in softball. I did

Katelyn Sims was a member of last year's
homecoming court at Bradford High School. She
went into the hospital earlier than normal for
treatments and therapies so she could take part in
the festivities.


it. I did it just to say I could do
it."
Katelyn has been active
despite the fact she was told by
doctors she would not live past
the age of 12. Later, she heard
she would not make it past 16.
"1 learned at a young age
that doctors aren't always
right," she said.
Still, others with cystic
fibrosis who grew up with
Katelyn at Wolfson Children's
Hospital are no longer here.
Five deaths, ranging in age
from 17 to 22. It's something
Katelyn has reflected upon.
Why is she still here while
they're gone?
"I always thought I had a
purpose in being here and that
there was something 1 had to
do," she said. "Now, it seems
like everything is starting to
fall int6 place with the national
spokesperson thing. That just
came out of nowhere. I wasn't
too sure about it at first. Now,
it's something I really want to
do.
"Maybe my purpose is just
to help find a cure, raise the
money and inspire people."

Spreading the word,
working for a cure
As a spokesperson for the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,
Sims -fis the dpportulity to
talk to others about the disease.
She has appeared before civic
service groups such as Kiwanis


and Rotary clubs and has
spoken at churches. She will
appear at a Jacksonville
Jaguars tailgate party Sept. 13
and will serve as the
ambassador for events
celebrating Wolfson
Children's Hospital's 551h
anniversary in January.
Other than that, Katelyn said
she has no real set schedule as
far as spokesperson duties go.
She just receives phone calls
every so often asking her if she
is willing to participate in an
upcoming event.
She's enjoying her role as
spokesperson so far, but Leisa
said she believes Katelyn was
terrified of the role at first.
"I think she didn't think she
was good enough," Leisa said.
"It's a big step, but she wants
to be the best one they've ever
rad."
An live appearance with
Chuck Kramer on Starke's
WEAG radio station gave
Katelyn some confidence,
Leisa said. Katelyn was scared
because she didn't think she
could keep from having a
coughing fit during the 15
minutes she was to be on the
air. She made it through the
interview with Kramer,
though, and called her mom
afterward to tell her about it.
"She said, 'When I made it
through that 15 minutes, I
knew I could make it through
anything.' That's when she
realized it was OK, that God


would get her through it,
regardless of what it is or how
hard it is," Leisa said.
In her role as CFF
spokesperson, perhaps Sims
can inspire people just as she
has in Bradford County and
the surrounding area. Leisa
said she hears from people all
the time who have cited
Katelyn's tenacity as a positive
influence on their lives. In fact,
since Katelyn does touch so
many people's lives, support
for the upcoming Great Strides
walk has been so great that
Claudia Weiher, the executive
director of the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundations' Florida
Chapter-North Florida
Office, has said this could be
the foundation's biggest
inaugural walk, Leisa said. As
of now, it is anticipated 300-
500 people will show up for
the event.
"We have : a great
community here," Leisa said.
"We may be small, but we're
one large family. Everybody
does kind of look out for
everybody. We kind of have
each other's backs."
Some businesses have
pledged their support as well.
The Starke Hardee's is
providing breakfast for
participants, Cowboys Steak
House will provide the post-
event food and Sonny's will
provide refreshments.
Still, the event could always
use more support, Leisa said.
Those wishing to volunteer
their services may do so online
at www.cff.org. Click on the
"Great Strides" link, then enter
"Florida" where prompted and
"Florida Chapter-North
Florida Office" as the host
chapter.
Those who want to join a
fundraising team, start their
own team or simply make a
donation toward the event may
also do so online. You can also
click on ihe "Great Strides"
link and do a search, under
Katelyn's name.
Katelyn has defied doctors'
diagnoses in the past regarding
how long she will live, but will
she live long enough to see a
cure for cystic fibrosis, the
very thing the walk is designed
to raise funds for? That
remains to be seen, but ier
approach to the walk is not that
she's doing it for herself, but
for the children who will come
after her. Leisa said her
daughter's response is, "I still
did what I could. I made a
difference."

absorb food. An additional 10 million people in
the U.S. are carriers of the defective gene, but

Arthur Glover


Starke man
charged
cocaine,
ecstasy
The BUSTED task force, a
cooperative effort of the
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office, the Union County
Sheriff's Office and the Starke
Police Department, netted
another arrest Aug. 20 after
Arthur Lee Glover, 28, of
Starke sold cocaine to a
confidential informant.
Investigators with the multi-
agency task force received
information about Glover
selling drugs and worked to set
up-a sting to catch him in the
act.
When the, purchase was
made, Glover was immediately
apprehended by the
investigators. He was found to
be in physical possession of
some marijuana, as well as
cocaine. When investigators,
learned that Glover was
staying in a local hotel, they
checked the hotel room and
found more cocaine, in both
powder and crack form,
marijuana, ecstasy, scales and
other paraphernalia.
Glover was booked into the
Bradford County Jail and was
charged with three counts of
possession of a controlled
substance and four counts of
sale of a controlled substance.
Total bond was set at $175,000
and he remained in jail as of
press time.

Man ordered
to pay
$68,000 for
killing buck
Dustin Cole Jernigan of
Haines City was* recently
-ordered by Union County
Judge David Reiman to pay
$68,000 in restitution for
killing and beheading a tame
breeding buck in Union
County last year.
Jernigan is serving four
years of probation after
pleading no contest to illegally
taking deer, trespassing while
armed and two counts of
breaking fences. He was
arrested after the head and
cape of the animal was found
in a taxidermist's shop near his
home.
The buck was a stud deer
from Shadd's Game Farm near
Lake Butler. Named Peabody,
the animal was tame and
owners said it would probably
have walked right up to
Jernigan.
The restitution amount first
asked was $80,000, and that
seemed high until testimony by
Dwight Knight, president of
the Florida Deer Association,
pointed out that another animal
of the same type recently sold
for almost 10 times as milch.
A deer that was descended
from the same mother, and was
housed in the pen next to
Peabody's, sold for $750,000
earlier this year.
Knight said these animals
are akin to racehorses. The
pedigree makes them highly
valuable.

Road to postseason


a challenging one


for area teams


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
TeleZraph Staff Writer
Every team enters the season
with hopes and dreams of
extending its season by earning
a berth in the regional playoffs,
but what kind of road lies
ahead for area teams Bradford,
Keystone Heights and Union
County as they prepare to
compete in new districts and
earn the first berth for either
program since 2006?
Union was the only team of
the three to finish last season
with a winning record, but the
Tigers, who went 7-3 during
the season, missed out on the
playoffs because of losses to
Trinity Catholic and
Newberry. (The Tigers
finished the year with an 8-3
record after playing in a
postseason bowl game against
Baldwin.)
The Tigers lose both of
those opponents this year after
the Florida High School
Athletic Association's
realignment. Union will still
compete in Class 2B, but will
now do so as part of District 2.
That district also includes
Bradford, which played in
Class 2A last year, compiling a
3-7 record.
The Tornadoes and Tigers
will face two playoff teams
from last year in Florida High
(Tallahassee) and Fort White,
which combined to go 20-4.
Florida High, which competed
in Class 2B, went 9-1 during
the regular season and fell one
game shy of playing for the
state championship. Florida
finished the year 11-2 after
losing 45-21 to Trinity
Catholic (Ocala) in the state
semifinals.
Fort White, a Class 2A team
last year, went 9-1 also during
the regular season before
losing 35-7 to Pensacola
Catholic in the first round of
the playoffs.
The district is also
composed of East Gadsden
(Havana), which went 5-5 in.
Class 3A last year, and Taylor
County (Perry), which went 3-
7 in Class 2A.
Bradford and Union will
each face a district opponent it
also played last year. The
Tornadoes opened last year
with a 38-0 loss to Fort White,
while the Tigers capped the
regular season with a 42-6 win
over Taylor County.
In comparing Union, Florida
High and Fort-White, the three
best teams in the district based
upon last year's performances,
the Tigers scored 352 points to
opponents' 221, while Florida
High outscored teams 486-172

and Fort White outscored
teams 311-164. Florida High
scored more than 30 points in
10 games, while holding
opponents to seven points or
less in seven games, including
four shutouts. Fort White
scored more than 30 points
four times, with opponents
scoring seven points or less six
times.
Florida High is shooting for
its sixth straight playoff
appearance. The team was also
a state semifinalist in 2007 and
2003, losing to Union in 2003,
while not making it out of the
first round in 2004, 2005 and
2006.
Keystone, which played in
Class 2A last year and was in
the same district as Bradford,
is now a member of District 4
in Class 2B. The Indians are
just one of two teams in its six-
team district that did not have
a winning record last year.
Trinity Catholic and
Newberry, who were the top
two teams in Union County's
district last year, went a
combined 17-3, while
Williston and Mount Dora
each went 6-4 in Class 3A and
Class 2A, respectively.
The Indians went 3-7, while
Umatilla, which played in
Class 2A, failed to win a game.
Trinity Catholic would
appear to be the team to beat,
having finished as state runner-
up last year. The Celtics were
also state runners-up in 2006
and a state champion in 2005.
Last year, Trinity compiled a
9-1 record in the regular
season. The Celtics won three
playoff games, but lost 21-17
to Pahokee in the state
championship.
Newberry, a state runner-up
in 2007, went 8-2 in the
regular season and advanced to
the second round of the
playoffs before losing 27-17 to
Trinity. The Panthers finished
with a 9-3 record, with two of
those losses coming against
Trinity, .. ,,, ,- :- .....
Trinity had the'- better
offense, outscoring opponents
550-256. The Celtics surpassed
30 points in 10 games, with six
of those games having scores
of more than 40.
Newberry outscored
opponents 362-193. The
Panthers scored more than 30
points seven times.
The Celtics and the Panthers
each held nine opponents to

while," Gaskins said. "This is
the ultimate-as far as
America is concerned-dual-
d C sport motorcycle trip. It's the
s longest one youl can have in
just the continental United
States."
" The Trans-America Trail,
approximately 4,800 miles,
was mapped by Sam Correro
schools in the 1980s. Gaskins said
mit2Bfit Correro had a dream to ride
may be across the country solely on
er and unpaved roads.
Florida "He ordered a bunch of
program , county maps from all over,
mitment intersected them, drew lines on

exercise said.
Along their journey, Gaskins
designed and Maddox saw many
ademics beautiful sights, but there were

Daniel Maddox (foreground) takes a look at his bike,
which needed some welding work done in Colorado.


Nevada, Gaskins said. The
worst weather the duo
experienced was in that state
as heavy rains turned the sand
into mud that was sticky
enough so that it accumulated
on the bikes and bogged the
engines down. Gaskins said he
and Maddox would have to
stop and wipe the mud from
the bikes with sagebrush.
The mud was also not easy
to keep the bike upright on.
"I fell down, I bet you, about
a dozen times on just this one
part of the trail in one day,"
Gaskins said. "It was just
ridiculous."
Cinnamon Pass in Colorado
presented a challenge as well
at an elevation of 12,000-plus
feet.
"I dropped my bike four
times going up this pass,"
Gaskins said. "When you get
up in altitude like that, your
bike doesn't have much
performance." He compared
the bike's performance at that
altitude to a person trying to
breathe at that altitude. It's a
striiggUlc. '
There were anxious
moments, too, riding along
those mountainous roads in
Colorado and Utah, with sheer
drop-offs on one side and
mountain walls on the other.
Yet the scenery was something
to behold. Gaskins said Utah
was much prettier than he
expected.
Then there was Oregon. It
was the prettiest state the duo
traveled through, Gaskins said.
The water made an impression


on Gaskins. He told of
stopping at a stream to wet his
bandanna. The water was so
clear that his hand was in the
water before he realized it.
Gaskins and Maddox also
camped at Crater Lake.
Gaksins said the water is-the
"prettiest blue you're ever
going to see."
As enjoyable as such sights
were, Gaskins said the
highlights of the trip were
making stops that gave them.

drive up and ask if they needed
any help. They would wind up
talking to a total stranger for
half an hour, Gaskins said.
"Everyone we met was very,
very friendly and - very
accommodating," he said.
Good thing, too. At one
point during the drive through
Colorado, the. shifter on the
bike Maddox was driving
broke. Locals pointed the duo
to two homes where men who
were welders lived. Neither
welder was home, but the wife
of one called an emergency
medical technician who had
some skills.
"He told us ahead of tirne he
wasn't much of a welder,"
Gaskins said, "but he would
patch it up enough to get it on
the road."
The shifter broke again in
Colorado. Again, the help of
others led the duo to a man

Heavy rains in Nevada caused mud to build up on the

Kiwanis donations

to address BHS

weight room needs


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford High School head
football coach was already
going to walk away from the
Aug. 18 Kiwanis Club of
Starke meeting with a smile on
his face, having received a
$250 donation toward the
football program from the
Aktion Club, the Kiwanis club
for those with mental and
physical disabilities.
However, that smile
would've gotten much bigger
if not for the look of shock on
his face shortly after the $250
presentation. Hoard also
received a check in the amount
of $8,000 from the Kiwanis
Club itself, which will be used
toward purchasing equipment
for the school's weight room.
"We can't thank the Kiwanis
enough for the impact they've
made," Hoard said. "They've
helped Bradford High School
several times over the years.
They've helped basketball.
They've helped our library and
nurherous other things in our
school system.


"It's greatly appreciated.
They're good people."
Winnie Holland, , the
president of the Kiwanis Club
of Starke, said she was glad
the club's board members
voted to make the donation.
"I think it's important we
support our youth and
especially the athletic
program," Holland said.
It has been a goal of Hoard's
to buy new weight equipment
because the current equipment
has sustained damage over the
last several years due to
moisture seeping through the
weight room floor. The school
system is working to alleviate
that problem with a new air-
conditioning system, Hoard
said.
Five power racks, five
benches and five Olympic
benches will be purchased with
the donations from the
Kiwanis clubs, Hoard. said. He

Football is finally here, and
though the results don't count,
area teams are ready to kick
off their seasons this Friday,
Aug. 28, in preseason kickoff
classics before beginning the
regular season Friday, Sept. 4.
Bradford and Keystone
Heights will each host a classic
against Williston and
Ridgeview, respectively, while
Union County will travel to
Jasper to take on Hamilton
County. All three games,
which are composed of varsity
and junior varsity teams
playing a half each, are
scheduled for 7 p:m.
Recent history shows the
Tigers have the easier
opponent as Hamilton County
is coming off of a 1-9 season,
its third straight losing season.
The Trojans' lone win last year
was 26-12 over Bishop
Snyder. They did not come
real close to winning a second
game, as their closest loss was
17-6 against Baldwin. The
team's remaining eight losses
were by an average score of
41-7. Six opponents scored
more than 40 points on the
Trojans.
One of those opponents was
Union, which defeated
Hamilton 40-7. The Tigers got
three touchdowns from
graduate Deven Perry, while
senior quarterback Chris
Alexander had touchdown
passes of 17, 44 and 58 yards.
Union's defense held the
Trojans to 34 yards, including
minus-8 on the ground.
The two teams played four
common opponents last year.
Besides the aforementioned
17-6 -loss to'Baldwin, the
Trojans lost 43-7 to Chiefland,
42-12 to P.K. Yonge and 28-0
to Dixie County. Union
defeated all of those teams,
winning by scores of 42-20
(Baldwin), 47-14 (Chiefland),
38-0 (P.K. Yonge) and 35-28
(Dixie County).
Bradford and Keystone both
face playoff teams from last
year, with the Indians taking
on a Class 4A opponent in
Ridgeview that went 8-5.
Ridgeview advanced to the
third round of the playoffs
before losing 44-7 to
Seabreeze. The Panthers
averaged 25 points per game,


scoring more than 30 points
four times, while opponents
averaged 21 per game.
Ridgeview's largest margin of
victory was 49-8 against
Matanzas, while its closest was
28-22 against Nease.
Seabreeze handed the Panthers
their worst loss, while the


closest margin of defeat was
10 points (29-19 against
Orange Park).
The Panthers had two
straight losing seasons prior to
last year, winning a total of six.
games in 2006 and 2007.
Keystone and Ridgeview
played no common opponents


last year, but the two did play
each other in a kickoff classic
in Orange Park. In a half of
play, the Panthers won 7-0.
Based on last year's
numbers, Bradford plays the
team with the most potent

Tigers posted big offensive


numbers
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A 44-0 loss to Baker County
to open the season was in no
way an indicator of things to
come for the 2008 Union
County football team.
The Tigers struggled to
score-and hang onto the ball
with five turnovers-but that
would prove to be the only
time they were shut out. Union
went on to outscore opponents
352-177 after playing Baker
County, with its offense
accounting for 45 touchdowns.
Deven Perry and Najeeb
Smith crossed the goal line a
total of 28 times ..on offense.
The bulk of the Tigers' scores
came on the ground with 32.
touchdown runs. Perry had 12
of those, with his longest
scoring run covering 58 yards.
That helped seal a 34-24 win
over West Nassau.
Perry also had touchdown
run of 43 yards in a 49-22 win
over Santa Fe.
Smith carried the ball nine
times for touchdowns. His two
longest scoring runs, covering
85 and 42 yards, were in the
win over Santa Fe. Smith also
had a 32-yard touchdown run
in a 47-14 win over Chiefland.
Justin .Tyson had five
touchdown runs, with a long
run of 61 yards against Santa
Fe.
Though it did not result in a
score, DJ. Paige had a 96-yard
run in a 42-6 win over Taylor
County.
Quarterback Chris
Alexander threw all but one of
the team's 13 touchdown
passes. His longest covered 65
yards. Perry was the recipient
of that pass, which occurred in
the 42-20 bowl win over
Baldwin.
Perry also had a 58-yard
touchdown reception against
West Nassau, while Alexander
hooked up with Lonnie Gosha
for a 59-yard score in a 38-0
win over P.K. Yonge.
Smith had four touchdown
receptions, three of which'


en route t
covered more than 30 yards.
He had a 32-yard touchdown
reception in the win over
Baldwin, while also catching
scoring passes of 43 and 44
yards against Taylor County
and Hamilton County-a 40-7
win-respectively.
The Tigers' offense had a
total of 14 touchdowns that
covered more than 30 yards.
Another three were between 20
and 30 yards each.
Union's offense was not the
only one to get into the act.
Adam Cason returned a punt
70 yards for a touchdown
against Santa Fe, while Bryan
Holmes returrned kickoffs 86
and 98 yards for scores in
consecutive games (Chiefland
and Taylor County).
Defensively, Kendall Wright
turned in a long play as well,
returning an interception 39
yards for a touchdown against
P.K, ongc- .+ - -
The Tigers were able to take
a lead into the half of each of
their wins. Their closest
margin in those games was
eight points (22-14) against
Santa Fe. The closest margin
overall was two points (a 14-
12 deficit) in a 21-18 loss to
Newberry.
Union scored at least three
touchdowns in the first half of
each of its wins and outscored
all of its opponents in the first
half by a combined score of
206-117.
The second half was a little
closer for the Tigers as they
outscored opponents, by a
combined score of 146-104.
A complete breakdown of
how opponents scored against
Union County was not
available, though the defense
did hold every opponent to two
touchdowns or less in the first
half.
The most opportunistic
game for the Tigers
defensively occurred against
P.K. Yonge. Union forced nine
turnovers in that game, which
included Wright's interception
return for a touchdown as well

Telelgrapli Sta/f Writer
Scoring lais year was a
problem for the Bradford and
Keystone Heights offenses,
neither of which averaged even
'a touchdown per game.
Bradford was implementing
a new offense and was not
helped by the fact offensive
coordinator Bryan Jones left
the team in midseason. The
Tornadoes scored 18
touchdowns, 12 of which came
on the ground.
Gerald Goodman led the
team with four touchdown
runs, all of which occurred in a
28-6 win over Interlachen.
Quarterback Trey Winkler had
three touchdown runs,
including a 60-yarder, which
was the team's longest, in a
19-17 win over Fernandina
Beach.
Scolt Crews and Tramaine
Harris each caught two
touchdown passes from
Winkler to lead the team.
Crews had a 30-yard
touchdown reception in a 14-
13 loss to Keystone, but it was
Charles Jones who led the
team with a 52-yard
touchdown reception of a pass
thrown by Winkler in a 37-13
loss to Houston Christian.
Bradford's longest scoring
play occurred on special
teams. CJ. Covington returned
a kickoff 89 yards for a score
in the Houston Christian game.
Covington also had an 80-plus-
yard return for a score in a 48-
6 loss to Bolles.
Harris tied Winkler for the
third-longest scoring play on a
60-yard interception return in a
33-14 win over Yulee.
The Tornadoes have been an


aggressive defense that forces
turnovers for a number of
years now and last year was no
exception. Bradford created
five turnovers in the win over
Interlachen, which included
two interceptions by Jones.
Jones had two interceptions
in a 27-6 loss to Ribault. As a
team, the Tornadoes had four.
turnovers in that game.
Bradford's win over Yulee
featured three turnovers.
The longest scoring play the
Bradford defense gave up was
a 71-yard pass from Yulee
quarterback Petty Conner to
Derrick Peterson. The longest
score against the Tornadoes,
though, was a 92-yard
interception return by
Interlachen's Quell Brown.
Overall, Bradford turned out
to be more of a second-half
team. There was only a nine-
point differential between the
Tornadoes and their opponents
in th6 second half as they were
outscored 85-76. Conversely,
opponents outscored Bradford
128-59 in the first half. (These
numbers do not reflect the
game against Bolles as the
scoring breakdown was not
available.)
Bradford never led at the
half in any of its losses, with
the smallest deficit being 7-0
against Ribault.

Robinson scored all
but 6 of Keystone's
touchdowns
Keystone scored three fewer
touchdowns than Bradford,
with 10 on the ground and five
through the air.
Running back Marcel
Robinson scored the majority

of the team's touchdowns,
rushing for nine scores. One of
his touchdown runs covered 80
yards, which tied for the
longest score from scrimmage.
That occurred in a 35-7 win
over Interlachen, as did the
other 80-yard score-a pass
from Brantley Lott to Ryan
Latner.
Robinson also had a 71-yard
touchdown run in a 17-14 win
over West Nassau.
.Lott and Latner hooked up
for three of the Indians' five
touchdown pass plays, which,
beside the 80-yard play against
Interlachen, also included a
56-yarder in a 38-21 loss to
Lafayette.
The Indians had four
touchdowns of more- than 40
yards each, something
opposing offenses never
achieved. Opponents did,
however, combine for eight
scoring plays of more than 20
yards, the longest of which
was a 34-yard run by West
Nassau's David Price.
The longest score against the
Indians was a 60-yard
interception return by Bolles'
Aaron Riley.
Keystone's best game as far
as creating turnovers was the
win over Bradford. The
Indians had three fumble
recoveries and one
interception.
Teams outscored the Indians
87-42 in the first half and 154-
69 in the second half.
Keystone trailed 7-0 at the half
in two of its losses (21-0 to
Ribault and 21-0 to Yulee) and
was in a scoreless tie in a 21-0
loss to Fort White. The Indians
led Fernandina Beach 7-0 at
the half before losing 20-17 in
overtime.

Dave Gaskins laughs and gives a thumbs-up after his bike went down due to
slippery, algae-covered rocks in western Tennessee.

who was a maintenance
worker at a golf course.
"He patched it up right,"
Gaskins said. "It lasted the rest
of the trip."
The trip was the longest of
its kind for Gaskins. (Maddox,


though, once drove his bike
from Bradford County to
Guatemala.) He has driven his
bike to Cherokee, N.C.,
through Tennessee and hack,
while he and Maddox both
rode to Talladega National
Forest in Alabama.
From St. Augustine, Gaskins
and Maddox drove to Jellico,
Tenn., on 1-75. They picked up
the trail in Jellico after


switching g to tires that would
better handle dirt.
Alon" the way, the duo
came across several "Bridge
Out" signs. Most of the tine,
they had to find a way around
the bridges, but there was one
bridge a. which they simply
took some nearby boards and
made a makeshift ramp to
drive over it.
"You wouldn't want to do

that with a truck," Gaskins
said, "but as light as the bikes
were, we figured it would be
safe. It turned out to be OK."
At night, Gaskins and
Maddox mostly camped. They
did sleep indoors some-they
stayed at hostels twice, for
example-but Gaskins
estimated they camped out 15
nights of the 21-day journey.
The early stages of that
journey brought about'
excitement whenever they
entered a new state. As the
days wore on, however, a new
state was simply just another
state.
"The small celebrations
didn't last long," Gaskins said.
"The reality was, 'We have to
get back on the road.'"
That's why Gaskins was not
as happy as Maddox was when
they finally reached Oregon.
All Gaskins could think was
that they still had to drive
through Oregon.
"I was not happy until we
finally made it to the Pacific,"
he said.
Maddox stayed in Oregon,
having driven his vehicle out
there prior to the ride and
leaving it in long-term parking,
taking a plane back home. He
stayed to tour throughout the
Northwest.
Gaskins' plan was to ride his
bike back home, but an
electrical problem while still
on the West Coast put it out of
commission. (Again, the
kindness of others resulted ia a
home to stay in after his bike


broke down.) He drove a
Budget rental truck back
home, carrying his bike in the
back, which also served as
sleeping quarters.
"I slept in the back of the
truck at rest areas for three
nights," Gaskins said. "Two
nights, I stayed in my sleeping
bag. The third night, I hung a
hammock up diagonally in
there to sleep in."
No(v that he's back home,
Gaskins, who works as a
technician with the Florida Air
National Guard,' plans to
compile the information from
the journal he kept during the
trip and write a book. It was
something he was conscious of
wanting to do before making
the trip, which is why he took
notes and took plenty of
pictures. ,
"I've read a bunch of
motorcycle travel books," he
said. "I said, 'You know, I'd
like to do something like that
one day.' I took notes from the
very beginning."
Now that he's ridden the
Trans-America Trail, Gaskins
has no immediate plans to do
so again. He would not rule
out a second trip completely,
but said he would do it
differently the next time. The
camping gear and equipment
he and Maddox carried made
the bikes too heavy for some
of the terrain and conditions
they drove through.
No, if he takes the trail
again, Gaskins said he'd want
to do it like the man and his


sons he and Maddox met along
the way. This man and his
three sons were riding the
Continental Divide Trail from
Mexico to. Canada. However,
the man's wife accompanied
them, driving a camper and
pulling a trailer that carried
tools, an air compressor and a
generator among, other items
so that the bikes weren't
weighted down. The woman
would drive ahead of her
husband and her sons-one
son rode with her at all
times-and have lunch and
dinner ready for them at the
appropriate times.
The situation made Gaskins
say to himself, "We were
idiots. That's what we
should've done right there."

trip Gaskins and Maddox via

Scott Crews

BHS grad
Crews will
start as
freshman for
Delta Devils
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Scott Crews, who graduated
from Bradford High School in
May, has already earned a
starting position for the
Mississippi Valley State
University football team,
which comes as no surprise to
Bradford head coach Steve
Hoard.
Crews, who earned a full
scholarship from the Division
1.AA school in Itta Bena,
Miss., will be the long snapper
on special teams. Hoard said
fe, fact Crews has made such
ain impression on Mississippi
Valley State coaches in a short
period of time lets you know
wbat he's capable of.
-Whatever the kid does is no
siuprise to me," Hoard said.
;Crews, the son of Roy T.
ans Julie Crews, played tight
ehd his senior year at
Badford. Prior to that, he was
a-'wide receiver and a "pretty
gPod" one, Hoard said. Tight
1id was an area of concern as
Grews entered his senior year.
fOard admitted he was not too
sure about moving Crews to
that position. However, the'
Coach did not need have any
reason to be concerned. '
"Man, he had a jam-up year,
an awesome year at tight end,"
Hoard said. "He was never a
liability. He was tremendous
all year long." .
Though admitting he would
not be surprised at anything
Crews accomplishes, Hoard
had to confess he did not
necessarily expect Crews to
nail down a starting position
right away. That, he said,
speaks to the heart and tenacity
of Crews.
"You can't tell him no,"
Hoard said. "He finds a way to
get it done."
. Crews, who started playing
Pop Warner at age 7, played
four years at Bradford. High
School after playing in the
seventh and eighth grades at
Bradford Middle School. He
lettered his junior and senior
years, receiving the scholar
athlete awards both years as
well as an Iron Man award in
2007. Crews was recognized
by the Starke Hardee's as a
Player of the Week and an Old
Spice Red Zone Player of the
Year last season.
-The Mississippi Valley State
Delta Devils open the season
Saturday, Sept. 5, against
Arkansas State in Jonesboro,
Ark., at 6:05 p.m. That is sure
to( -be a memorable game for
Crews along with the De ils'
third game against Alabama
State on Saturday, Sept. 26,
which will be played at the
legendary Soldier Field in
Chicago.
-.Homecoming is Oct. 3
against Texas College.
The Delta Devils play"in the
Southwestern Athletic
Conference, which is also.
composed of Alabama A&M,
Alabama State, Alcorn State,
Grambling State, Jackson
State, Prairie View A&M,
Southern, Texas Southern and
Arkansas Pine Bluff. i
::Mississippi Valley went 3-8
last season.


BHS grad
Shannon's

team to play
on ESPNU
Venice High School, where
1993 Bradford High.School
graduate Larry- Shinnon is the
defensive coordinator, will
play Oscar Smith High School,
located in Chesapeake, Va.,
Friday,. Aug. 28, at 7 p.m. on
ESPNU.
The game, featuring two
standout quarterbacks, was
originally planned for . an
ESPN broadcast. Venice
quarterback Trey Burton has
committed to Florida, while
Oscar Smith quarterback
Phillip Sims has committed to
Alabama.
Venice is coming off of an
11-1 season in which the
defense, under Shannon's
leadership, held seven
opponents to less than 150
total yards.
In Sims, Venice will face a
quarterback who averaged 211
yards passing and three
touchdowns per game last
year. Sims threw for 334 yards
and six touchdowns in his last
outing, a 54-24 win over
Osbourn in Virginia's Group
AAA-Division 6 state
championship game.


Josh Weaver enters this season as a preseason Big
South all-conference selection.



Former Tornado

season at Liberty


Bradford High School
graduate Josh Weaver will
begin his final- season at
Liberty University in a big
way when the Flames take on
West Virginia Saturday, Sept.
5, at noon in Morgantown,
W.V.
Weaver, whb graduated
from Bradford High School in
2005, is the Flames' starting
right tackle. He is a team
captain this year for the
.offense and a preseason Big
South all-conference selection.
Liberty head coach Danny,
Rocco referred to Josh as a
"smart player who asserts
himself as a good leader,
bringing experience to the
offensive line." Weaver saw
action in 14 games as a
freshman and sophomore,
'including starting twice as a
sophomore, before starting all
12 games last year.
Rocco, on the- -Liberty-
University athletics Web site,
,said Weaver had a "great
summer and an outstanding
spring."
"He has started' a lot of
football games around here for
us, and we are expecting him
to have an outstanding
season," Rocco was quoted as

information that she deems
useful to other teachers and
educators across the state.
In-a letter written to Lake
Butler Elementary School-
Principal Lynn Bishop, Gillian
Cohen-Boyer of the U.S.
Department of Education in
Washington wrote,' "We see
this as a vital: link . to your
school and district as',well.as
an opportunity for Ms. Ulmer
to-be able to network and share
information across, the' state
and in the region as well as .
with the professional
organizations with which ,she
is associated. We have found
that it is a great opportunity for
educators to spark good.
conversation on' the
connections between federal,
state and local policy and how
these resources can be best be
leveraged."
Bishop said she is very
proud that Ulmer was chosen
for the fellowship.
"Mrs. Ulmer is a credit to
her profession and to our
school system. She will have
an opportunity to share
educational concerns on the
local, state and national level.
We are happy she's been
chosen for such a prestigious
position."
Ulmer is the math coach at
Lake Butler . Elementary
School and also the instructor-


saying.
Last season, Weaver helped
the Flames finish ninth in total
offense among Division I
Football Bowl Subdivision
teams. Liberty averaged 446'
yards per game, which
included an average of 213
rushing yards per game, which
ranked the Flames 12"h in the
nation.
Weaver led the team in 2008
with total plays (771). He
recorded 126 knockdowns and
did not allow a sack.
Liberty went 10-2 last year,
winning its second straight
conference championship and
finishing with a final national
ranking of 14'h.
As a true freshman in 2005,
Weaver saw playing time in
the Flames' opener, but he was
eventually redshirted. In 2006,
he played in five games before
.gaining more experience as .a.
sophomoree 'in '2007. He
appeared in nine games that
year; starting twice.
Weaver will graduate in
December with plans to pursue
a master's degree in
preparation for full-time
Christian ministry.

Hoard said, "but, man, that's
going to be a blessing to.have
some new stuff the kids can
use and be proud of."
Weight-training equipment
is not cheap. Hoard estimated
it would take, another $13,000-
$14,000 to fully address the
weight room needs. Items such
as bars, bumper plates and
glute-hamstring machines are
