Bradford County private school enrollment 5th in state


Competition for
students heats up

BY DAN HILDEBRAN
STelegraph Staff Writer


Wiih 13.45 percent'of its students
enrolled in private schools, Bradford
-County trails only Jefferson, Duval,
Leon and Dade counties in the percent-
age of its students going to private insti-
tutions,according to the latest data from
the State's Department of Education.
The department assembled the num-
bers for the 2008-2009 school year in
its Private School Annual Report.
According to Bradford County's pri-
vate school administrators, the county's
ranking may inch up more after the
numbers for the current school year
are compiled. All three of the county's
largest private schools: Hope Christian
Academy, Northside Christian .Acad-
emy and Cassels Christian Academy,
say their 2009-2010 enrollment is up
from the previous year. At the same
time, private school enrollment across
Florida is declining, due to the reces-
sion and the related economic pressures
on families.
"In K-12 we went from 119 last year
to 163 this year," said Glenda Parrish,
office manger for Northside Christian
Academy. The school also has 70 stu-
dents in its prekindergarten program.


Cassels'Christian Academy, which is
only in its second year, now has over
200 students, 155 of which are K-12.
Hope Christian Academy, the area's
largest and second oldest private school,
now boasts an enrollment of 240.
According to the state's private
school report, the only
other small school
district with a greater
percentage of students
in private school is Jef-
ferson County, just east
of Tallahassee, and
that school district is
a sobering warning on
the dangers of declin-
ing enrollment. Last
March, the state de-
clared Jefferson Coun-
ty schools in a state of
financial emergency,
and took over financial oversight of the
district.
Since the state funds local schools
based on the number of full-time stu-
dents enrolled in public schools (called
full time equivalents or FTEs), declin-
ing enrollment was a.factor in Jeffer-
son's financial problems.
In addition, an October 2009, Florida
Auditor General Report cited declining
enrollment as a leading factor that im-
pacts the financial, condition of school
districts across the state. That same re-
port ranked Bradford County third in
the state for declining enrollment over


the last five years, trailing only Jeffer-
son arnd Madison counties.
But the scenario in Jefferson County
seems unlikely to occur in Starke soon
for several reasons. First, Jefferson's
public school system is one-third the
size of Bradford, making it more sus-
ceptible to enrollment
decreases. It has only
only two schools, an
elementary school and
a combined middle and
high school.








Second, Jef-
ferson's middle
and high school
received an F
grade in school
accountability reports in 2002, 2004,
2006 and 2009, sparking a mass exo-
dus, not only to Jefferson County's
dominant private school, Aucilla Chris-
tian Academy, but also to charter and
private schools in neighboring Leon
County.
While Bradford High School has
languished with a C or D score over
the past 11 years, the county's middle


school has climbed up to a B, and all of
its elementary schools have achieved a
B or higher in the past two years.
Third, in addition to its declining
enrollment, Jefferson County has also
been plagued by other financial prob-
lems, including poor cost controls and
substandard reporting practices. State
auditors said the Jefferson School Board
failed to approve a final budget for the
2008-2009 school year, and didn't re-
ceive monthly financial reports during
a time when their district was spiraling
toward a financial crisis.
Bradford, however, reported an ad-
mirable financial year for 2008-2009,
in spite of crippling funding decreases.
In a year when its revenues decreased
by over $3 million, the Bradford School
District still produced a net asset in-
crease of $378,669 while decreasing its
long-term debt by $1.2 million in the
fiscal year ended June 30,2009.
Finally, Bradford's public schools
have time. Even though it's been bleed-*
ing- students for more than a decade,
the Bradford School District averaged
a loss of only around 77 students per_
year through the 2005-2006 school
year. Since that time though, it has
lost around 125 students a year.-Even
though the losses have been low each
year, over the past 10 years, 22 percent
of the district's student population has
vanished, and those losses have caught

Housing

replacement

plan moves

forward

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

There is at least moderate interest in
a disaster housing funds the county is
receiving following a tornado that dam-
aged and destroyed a number of homes
in January.
County S.H.I.P. Directory Angela
Cooper explained to the state while
the tornado damage may not have been
enough to qualify the county for federal
disaster assistance, the storm was nev-
ertheless a disaster for the county, leav-
ing many without homes.
The S.H.I.P. disaster funds must be
used exactly as any normal S.H.I.P.
funds would be, and also in accordance
with the county's local housing plan.
Until last week, that plan only.allowed
for repairs of up to $10,000 per structure
following a disaster, but at Cooper's re-
quest the county commission approved
the housing replacement strategy for
homes that are beyond repair.
Commissioner Eddie Lewjs pointed
out that many impacted by the tornado
have already repaired or replaced their
housing at great cost, and he bemoaned
the fact that the disaster funds could not
be used to reimburse those homeown-
ers.
Cooper said she would like to be able
to give funds to everyone affected by
the disaster, but the funds must be used
in accordance with established S.H.I.P.
rules.

County moving

forward with

urban area

expansions

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The county is preparing to finish up
the work on expanding higher den-
sity development opportunities around
Starke and Keystone Heights, but it is
working with landowners who do not
want the zoning of their land altered.
Bradford County Zoning Director
Nora Thompson said last week that
citizens have raised concerns about the
proposed zoning changes, so she ap-
proached the commission to see if it
was still the board's intention to move
forward with the expansion of its so-'
called urban development areas.
Urban development areas are like de-
velopment buffers between urban and
rural areas. The fundamental difference
of areas designated for urban develop-
ment is the higher housing density al-
lowed. Based on where the county was
expecting the most intense growth, the
county moved a couple of years ago to
expand urban areas around Starke and
Keystone Heights, while reducing the
areas around smaller cities.
A proposed housing development
north of Starke (that never came to be)
Vad the fact that the county hadn't re-
drawn the urban development borders
since its comprehensive plan was first
approved helped drive the changes.
Because the point of urban develop-
ment areas is to increase the intensity
level of development allowed, changes
were necessary to the assignedfuture
land use categories. Now that land use
changes are complete, the county must
go back and 'ezone parcels so their zon-
ing category matches the land use cat-
egory on the future land use map.
Where the drban development area
was expanded, the future land use cat-
egory went from agriculture to residen-

Threatened by cuts, Meridian asks for county support


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Meridian Behavioral Health-
care President Margarita Labarta
has asked the county commis-
sion to recognize the importance
of the services the contractor
provides and not to join the state
in potential funding cutbacks for
mental health services.
The county hasn't started dis-
cussing its budget for Meridian
and other service providers go-
ing into next year, but the state
is considering tens of millions
in cuts for programs that address
mental health.
Meridian is an accredited and
licensed nonprofit provider of
behavioral health care primar-
ily mental health services and
substance abuse treatment. It is
governed by a board with repre-
sentation from the communities
it represents and acts as a safety
net for those in need of care.
Labarta highlighted the eco-
nomic impact Meridian has on
the communities it's in, employ-
ing more than 500 people across
10 counties and paying $21 mil-
lion in salaries and benefits. The
provider employs 12 people from
Bradford County. Eight employ-
ees staff the local clinic located
on Georgia Street full time, while
other employees make site visits
to provide services.
Meridian purchases $4 million
in goods and services annually in
its service area and provides $2.1
million in charitable, uncompen-
sated care.
Labarta also touted the pro-
vider's innovative and award-
winning programs, pointing, for
example, to its work with bat-
tered woman struggling with ad-
diction.


In addition to
abuse victims,
those with ad-
dictions and
the mentally
ill, Meridian
alsoworkswith
at-risk chil-
dren, pregnant
woman, older
adults, people
with HIV and
the homeless.
Its services in-
clude counsel-
ing, outreach,
prevention,

ment, residen-
tial treatment,

courts, hous-
ing, voca-
tional, case
management,
psychiatric vis-
its, therapeu-
tic foster care,
rehabilitation,
intensive, in-


tensive outpatient treatment, opi-
ate treatment and jail diversion.
Its partners include county
government, schools, law en-
forcement, courts, health clinics,
advocates, consumers, child wel-
fare and the Department of Chil-
dren and Family Services.
Its selection of treatments is
based on scientific evidence that
back their effectiveness, La-
barta said. There is a medically
assisted substance. abuse treat-
ment program, for example, that
lets Meridian help detox addicts
outside of a residential facility.
It is one of only two such pilot
programs in the state, she said,
and it is both effective and less
expensive.


Meridian is also in the process
of creating an electronic database
between its facilities that will al-
low it more efficiently share
records and communicate effec-
tively in providing treatment.
"Our eventual goal is to be
able to communicate directly
with health departments and ex-
change information, which really
enhances both quality and safety
of care," Labarta said.
Meridian's in-patient locations
are in Gainesville and Lake City,
but it maintains clinics through-
out its service area. Services are
billed on a sliding scale based
on an individual's ability to
pay. Meridian provides services
to uninsured and underinsured
individuals thanks to contribu-


tions from a number of sources,
including county governments,
which are required by the state
to provide mental health service
funding.for their citizens.
None of the counties covered
by Meridian would be able to pro-
vide the same care on their own,
however. The detox program, for
example, is a $1 million a year
program, Labarta said. It costs $4
million to run the crisis stabiliza-
tion units.
*. The numberof Bradford Coun-
ty residents served has .grown
over the past several years, and
Meridian projects it will serve
more than 900 by the end of this
year. The county spends $3 per
capital on these services, for a to-
tal of nearly $88,000, The actual

Union County schools dealt a double blow


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

Only six days after Union
County students and school staff
attended the funeral of 12-year-
old Lake Butler Middle School
student Michelle Perez, the com-
munity was shocked by the sud-
den death of Union County High
School Principal Alex Nelson.
Nelsoi,, 46, passed away sud-
denly during the early morning
hours of March 18. As students
arrived for school at UCHS that
morning, they were met by tearful
faculty and staff as they were es-
corted t6 the auditorium. Inside,
there was a large photograph of
their beloved principal displayed
on the projection screen. School
administrators bravely stood be-
fore the students to announce
the news and pay tribute to their
friend.
Earlier that morning, some
students had received a forward-
ed text message notifying them
of Nelson's death, but many did
not-or could not-believe it
was true.
Call it irony, but Nelson not
only attended school at Caldwell
County High School in Princeton,
Ken., where the school mascot
was also a Tiger, but the Nelson
family moved from Morganfield
in Union County, Kentucky four
years ago when he took over as
UCHS principal.
In an area on his employment
application on file at the district
school board office, Nelson was
asked why he was leaving his
former place of employment.
He wrote, "I'm going to move to
UCHS and live in God's coun-
try."
Superintendent Carlton Faulk
said Union County was God's
country to Nelson. *
"It was the kind of place he
wanted to live, raise his family
and share his talents. He was a
perfect fit for Union County,"
Faulk said. "Alex loved his stu-


dents, faculty, staff and his job.
You never saw Mr. Nelson when
he did not have a smile on his
face. He was a truly happy per-
son. His calm nature and dry wit
will be greatly missed."
Nelson had been married to his
sweetheart, Cathy, for 22 years,
and was the father of three chil-
dren, Noah, 18,a senior at UCHS,
Elizabeth, 16, a junior at UCHS,
and Samuel, 14, an eighth-grade
student at Lake Butler Middle
School. He was also "dad" to
hundreds of students throughout
his lifetime, whom he had men-
tored, guided and taught.
The day after his father passed
away, Noah, a member of the
high school tennis team, said he
still wanted to compete and honor
his father in an already scheduled
tennis match. His father is surely
proud of his courage: Noah won
both his single and doubles match
in the March 19 competition.
Nelson was a member of Little
Rock Church of Lake Butler,
where one of his closest friends
was his pastor, Randolph Murray
Sr.
"When Alex was looking for
a church home, he joined Little
Rock Church. He liked to pray
for others, and we made him
our minister of pray and deliver-
ance," said Murray.
Murray said he and his best,
friend liked to,play jazz music
together-Nelson on guitar and
Murray on the keyboard. The two
were planning to put something
together to play for students be-
fore the end of the school year.
Nelson and Murray shared a
special way of telling each other
they had something they needed
to talk and pray about, be it per-
sonal or school.
"Alex would come to me and
say 'road trip' and we would plan
a trip to Orlando or Jacksonville
so we could just talk and we al-
ways ended up going to bass fish-
ing pro shops," said Murray.
Just one week before his death,


Alex Nelson


friends helped Nelson celebrate
his 46th birthday with a big party
at the high school.
On. behalf of the school dis-
trict, Faulk said, "We express our
gratitude and appreciation for
what Alex brought to our school
system and to our community.
To his dear family, we express
or heartfelt sorrow and our ap-
preciation to you for sharing him
with us for these past four years..
His legacy will live on forever in
our hearts and our minds."
UCHS front office reception-
ist Debe Stephenson said, "Mr.
Nelson was one of the finest ex-.
amples of a devoted Christian
man I have ever met. He not only
talked the talk, but he walked the
walk."
Stephenson said that from the
day she met him, she knew right
away he was going to make quite
an impact not only in the lives of
the students, but also-on the lives
of everyone in Union County.
S"There were many days when
I was going through something
rather hard to deal with, and he
would have me come into his
office and we would pray about

it. He would always follow up
on the progress and make sure
things were getting better," Ste-
phenson said.
Not only did Nelson have a
very serious side, but he also
had a very funny side. For ex-
ample, he was always trying to
get Stephenson and the school's
former secretary, Kelly Holmes,
to eat sardines, which they both
dislike, and dislike the smell of
even more.
One day, the ladies came to
'work and could smell sardines.
"Kelly scrubbed the carpet,
I scrubbed the counters and we
still could smell them," Ste-
phenson said. When they agreed
they'd had enough and said they
were going home until the smell
went away, Nelson fessed up.
"We each found a sardine can
taped to the bottom of our desks,"
said Stephenson.
Last year when the district re-
ceived the FCAT results, Nelson
could not have been happier with
his students and faculty who had
worked so hard under his leader-
ship to help earn the district its
very first "A" grade.
"Alex was very supportive of
all of the programs, be it athlet-
ics, band, High-Q, FFA, cheer-
leading, etc. but was most proud
of the academic achievements of
the students," said Faulk.
.He added that Nelson was hap-
piest when he heard that his stu-
dents were going off to college,
vocational school or enlisting in
the military to become more suc-

finally, good neb ira%\-.
berries are ripening, ney' re
even sweeter than usual.
"Abnormally cool tempera-
tures delayed maturation of the
berries," said Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son. "Strawberries stayed on the
plants longer, so they had more
time to produce sugar. The re-
sult is the sweetest strawberries
we've seen in a very long time."
Shoppers can expect an abun-
dance of extra-sweet Florida
strawberries to be available no%
and in the upcoming weeks. The
harvest will continue through ear-
ly April and should reach its peak
in the middle of this month.
"Now is the time to celebrate
the harvest and enjoy Florida
strawberries at the height of sea-
son," Bronson said. "These ber-
ries couldn't be fresher, because
they're being picked right now,
right here in Florida."
Bronson offered the following
strawberry-buying tips for shop-
pers:
-Shop with your nose. Ripe
strawberries are sweetly fra-
grant.
-Look for strawberries that
are fully and deeply red. Be sure
the color has spread from one end
of the berry to the other. Don't
choose a berry with white or
green spots in hopes it will ripen
up on your windowsill; strawber-
ries stop ripening as soon as they
are picked.
-If you can touch the berries,
check to see that they are firm
but not hard.
-The calyx, the strawberry's
leafy cap, should be fresh and
green.
-Avoid moldy berries and
berries in wet, stained containers.
Soft, mushy berries are overripe.
During the 2008-2009 season,
Florida produced over $300 mil-
lion in strawberries between De-
cember and April,accounting for
nearly 240 million pints of fresh
berries. Hillsborough County in
west-central Florida is the hub
of state's strawberry production.
The county produces approxi-
mately 15 percent of the nation's
strawberries about 18 million
flats per year and virtually
all the berries grown during the
winter.
"Florida strawberries are in
stores in abundance. Prices are

SHIP
Continued from page 1A
The funds come in the form
of a forgivable loan. An award
would cover 70 percent of the
cost of replacing home. The ap-
plicant must match the award
by providing the other 30 per-
cent, although they may do this
by pursuing financing through a
leading institution.
Commissioner Ross Chan-
dler asked if there were interest
restrictions, but Cooper said a
homeowner's ability to receive
bank financing and the inter-
es,t they pay on their 30 percent
wbuld depend on their own cred-
it history and the willingness of
banks to lend.
While representatives from
several institutions attended a
workshop for potential appli-
cants on Monday, Cooper said
there were some who weren't'
interested at all.
:Still, Cooper reminded the
commission that those )who can _
mbet the requirementsfvill be '-
getting a new home, 70 percent
of: the cost of which would be
forgiven over 25 years.
'As County Chairman John
Wayne Hersey put it, it was up
to:the board to amend the hous-
ing plan as needed, then the
chips are going to fall where
they may.
:Eight couples attended Mon-
day's applicant workshop and
mbst seemed interested after
hearing more about the program,
Cooper said, and things were
kept very informal. In addition
to: bank reps, building inspector
Dale Manning and others from
the county were on hand to an-
sw.er questions.
Applications must be submit-
tel by April 15. In addition to
thb three-page general informa-
tiOn, information such as proof
of, dependents, property owner-
ship and a legal description of
the property in question are re-
quired.
To qualify, applicants must
meet certain income require-
ments. The funds can rebuild
houses, or they can be used to
replace mobile homes with site-
built homes.
Applicants must also appear
ori the list of disaster victims
compiled by emergency manage-
mpnt.
.One stumbling block could
be not having enough applicants
who fall into the very low-income
category. At least 30 percent of
the funds must be spent on those
applicants, Cooper said.
The disaster assistance may not
be an ideal solution, and they're
not handing out free houses,
Cooper said, but it can do some
good.
:"There will always be home-
leSs people, but we need to help
who we can," she said.
Anyone who still needs home
repairs can apply for that funding
as. well. A five-year forgivable
loan of S.H.I.P. dollars is pos-
sible for repairs up to $10,000,
although repair funding cannot
be spent on mobile homes.
Of course, the housing office
works all year on assisting people
with home repairs and replace-
ment. There is also a purchas-
ing assistance program through
which qualified applicants can


receive help funding a down pay-
ment on the purchase of an exist-
ing home.

the attention .of S superintendent
Beth Moore.
"We are watching it," said
Moore. "We've been losing stu-
dents over the past 12 years and
it. is a major issue because it is
through FTEs that. we get our
funding."
Moore added that she is going.
on offense to compete for stu-
dents. Her efforts include new
marketing materials and a com-
munity outreach program.
"We are working very hard to
get our students back," she said.
"We are trying to sell ourselves
and highlight the opportunities.
we can offer to our students. We
have a lot to offer. We've got to
get the word out."
The superintendent listed
the competitive advantages her
schools now own, including
advanced academics, the abil-
ity to serve students with-speciat
learning needs and extracurricu-
lar .activities like athletics and
clubs. The superintendent also
emphasized that her schools are
best suited to equip students'
with practical job skills through
the career center and vocational
school.
But those advantages are not
lost on her competitors. Both
Northside and Hope have beefed
up their athletic programs, join-
ing the Southeastern Christian
Conference.
-"We just listened to the par-
ents," said Northside's Glenda
Parrish. "They told us one rea-

couraged to attend. .
the reunion is scheduled for
Saturday, Aug. 28, at the Hamp-


son they were not enrolling their.
children in private school was
because of the activities the chil-
dren would miss out on."
Hope' also has a band and
chorus program, and Northside
runs intramural flag football
and archery programs. Bradford
Christian Academy, a school
of around 29 students, east of
Starke, supplements its athletics
by enrolling its students in pub-
lic school sports and the city of
Starkefs recreation programs.
In addition to athletics, Hope
Christian Academy is also shor-
ing upTis, academic programs by
improving teacher credentials
and selling accreditation.
"-We've got two teachers with
master's degrees now and we are
focused on increasing that num,
ber," said Principal Angle Davis.
Davis said her school is also
going through the accreditation
process with the Florida Council
of Private Schools.
-Whi:le Moore-is:aware of- the-
'advantages she now enjoys, she
is also aware of the competitive
disadvantages she must fight
against.
."Some parents want their chil-
dren to have a religious educa-
tion," he said. "Some don't like
the accountability that we have
to abide by because of state law.
Then there are some parents who
get upset because something has
happened and they decide it is
time for them to go someQwhere
else."

"We Are Debtors"

iOne day, on a hill my Savior died,
He paid the sin debt for you and I.
:So alone was he that wonderful day,
SOn a hill so far away.
His great agony was my gain,
SMy safety was His pain.
For God so loved the world that He
i.sent His Son to die for you and me.
by Henry Hodges
Lawtey, FL


We have a few parents that
are running' from the FCAT," she
said. "Not a majority, but a few.
In' some cases, the student has
failed the FCAT once and the
parent doesn't %ant that to hap-
Spcngain. In some cases, parents
don't like 'the emphasis that a
school places on the test."
Parrish also agreed with
Moore that man) times a particu-
lar event will trigger a moie to
another school.
"'It may be something that has
nothing to do with their child,"
she said. "They may hear a story
abovt another child that causes
them to makea..change."
Parrish also.said that parents
value the Christia-basd curric-
ulum at Northside, the emphasis
on phonics in the lower grades,
smaller class sizes and student
discipline.
Cassie Reddish, assistant prin:
cipal at Cassels Christian Acad-
emy, also said a curriculum fea-
turing the Bible and phonics is a
-big-draw-to her campus, in addi-
tion to student discipline.
"I'm the one that handles dis-
cipline here and the kinds of is-
sues we deal with are things like
talking in class," she said. "The
discipline Issues here are very
different than the ones I've seen
in public school,"
In the fight for students, it's
hard to say who the winners
and losers are now. The private
schools have momentum, but as
Moore said, lEradford County's
public schools still offer students
significant opportunities.

Keep Public Notices

In Your Newspaper!

Proposed legislation would remove
your right to read public notices in
newspapers, restricting them to -
government web sites only.
We're concerned.
You should be, too.
Public notices are an important tool
in ensuring an informed citizenry.
They have played a key role in
America's participatory democracy
where iti coiutsmos-t: how your tax
dollars are spent and how policy is
made.
When located in easy-to-find
sections of your newspaper, they are
fully accessible to everyone, unlike the
Internet. Large segments of the state's
population, including more thiian half
of Floridians over 65 and one-third
of minority populations, do not have
Internet access.
The public's right to know cannot
be-abandoned in favor of cost savings
that are elusive.


Consider that less than 10% Wof U.S.
citizens view a government web site
daily, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. This contrasts dramatically
.. with.the 83% of adults who read a
community newspaper every week,
according to the National Newspaper
Association.
Furthermore, a public notice printed
in the newspaper produces a
permanent record. A newspaper is
.archived for years, and is not subject
-- to computer crashes and hackers.
Newspapers are easily verifiable,
filly transparent and represent
an impartial third party. Giving
..government singular responsibility
for distributing public notices is like
putting the fox in charge of the hen
- house. .............
Newspapers are your watchdogs.
Keep it that way. Contact your local
representative today and voice your
opinion.

Former Keystone student now an infantry soldier


BY SUMMER WILLIAMS
Monitor Staff Writer
Joshua Fury-Guerrero was
once just a normal teenager
and student at Keystone
Heights High School, though
he graduated from Fort White
High in 2004.
Fresh out of high school, he
had a number of different jobs,
he said, but wasn't doing much
with his life until he joined the
Army.
"None of (the jobs) gave me
a chance to do something
special," he said.
Guerrero became a
specialist in the 82nd Airborne,
arriving at his unit one month
before it deployed to Iraq. He
had to learn quickly about the
hazards he would be facing.
But for Guerrero, adapting
was easy, "because of his
strong- will to succeed," wrote
Nathan Gilliland, a close
friend of Guerrero's. and .a
member of his platoon. "His
positive attitude and work
ethic helped him retain a very,
large amount of very important
information."
Guerrero's entire platoon
benefited from his attention to
detail and his work ethic in
Iraq. On patrol in east
Baghdad, Guerrero noticed a
rock that seemed out of place,
a point the untrained eye
would have simply passed by,
or even stepped on. He
observed what looked like an
electronic .sensor connected to
the rock and 'immediately
halted the patrol and informed
his leadership. The rock turned
out to be a deadly roadside
bomb waiting to go off when
the next American vehicle
passed.
"I was just doing my job,"
Guerrero said.
Being in Iraq presented
many challenges to the soldiers.

He felt a duty to help the'Iraqis
live a better life.
At one point, a morning
patrol saw three Iraqis in the
distance digging in an area that
had seen frequent buried
roadside bomb attacks on U.S.
troops. One of the three men
fled when approached and was
shot in the leg by advancing
troops and started bleeding
heavily. He was immediately

treated by the medic traveling
with the platoon and
transported to the nearest U.S.
base for medical care. The
other two men were arrested
by the troops and brought in


for investigation.
Guerrero found himself
holding the head of. the
wounded Iraqi during a frantic
trip to the base hospital.
"Just hold on, you'll be all


right," he told the Iraqi in
English.
"I learned that you have to
change a nation one person at a
time," he said, when asked
what he'd learned in Iraq.


"We try to show the people
kindness one person at a time.
I hope we can continue to
build relationships in our
sector so we can set up future

for success," he said.
Guerrero's unit is now on

efforts. The young soldier is
looking forward to returning
home soon.

A Thanksgiving to remember


SThe family spat in the Tiger
Woods home must have begun
the evening of Thanksgiving,
Nov. 26, and spilled over into
the early-morning hours of Nov.
21 when Woods struck a fire
hydrant and tree with his Cadil-
lac Escalade, severely damaging
the car and injuring himself.
From that point on, the incident
has been a continuing' news
story that just won't go away.
Woods dropped off the screen,
and nothing-absolutely noth-
ing-was heard from him for
three months, although it was
rumored that he was in therapy
in Mississippi.
During that period, Woods'
wife, Elin Nordegren, 29, moved
out of the $2.5 million mansion
in Windemere (adjacent to Or-
lando) and into a nearby home.
She has remained inaccessible to
the news media except for her
purchase of a $2 million home
on Faglaro Island off the coast
of Sweden. Her twin sister, Jose-
fin, was co-purchaser of the
home. Many people read into
the purchase a plan to separate
permanently from Woods and
carry their two children back to
her homeland. However, though
a reconciliation has not been
announced, while Woods was
presenting his mea culpa in the
TPA Clubhouse in Ponta Vedra,
his wife reportedly went to Mis-
sissippi following the public
disclosure.
Philandering husbands and
their tearful, repentant mea cul-
pas have become commonplace
in the American culture, with
former President pill Clinton,
South Carolina Gov. Mark
Sanford and former North Caro-
lina senator and presidential
candidate John Edwards being
most recent and remembered as
violating marriage vows. Sev-
eral TV evangelists have made
the list in recent years, along
with: innumerable men and
women in the entertainment
field. Virtually -all violators of
t~l hihg vows follo'i. 'similar
pattern of going before the cam-
eras to offer sincere-sounding
apologies to their wives and
families, and to the admiring
public.
Apparently, Woods confessed
a tryst with New York party girl
Rachel Uchitel that night in No-
vember. Approximately a dozen
other women immediately sur-
faced with similar stories. It
becomes immediately apparent
that men with lots of money
and/or an important position
attract-women who care little for
wedding rings. Run-of-the-mill,
Joe-Lunchbox types don't often
find themselves in affairs that
make headlines.
What does the future hold for
Woods? First, he is a wealthy
man, and it isn't likely that any
of the women involved will se-
riously dent his fortune. A di-
vorce and child support. will
drain off'a fe.w million dollars,
-but his fortune can withstand
even that kind of a hit. Although
Nike has publicly served notice
that it is staying with Woods, it
isn't exactly cast in stone, and if
bie finds his golfing ability di-
minished, Nike will look else-
where to spend its money.
; PGA Tour Commissioner Tim
Finchem has expressed the opin-
ion that Woods' golf game will
bounce back to his former num-
ber one standing on the circuit,
and others have expressed simi-


lar views.
I believe those opinions are
wistful thinking-that Woods'
best days are now behind him-
for two reasons: the nature of
the game and the aftermath of
other confessors.
SAny golfer with a reasonable
handicap will admit that golf is
-second only to chess in being a
mental game, and anything that
mentally disturbs the golfer's
mind will be reflected in his/her
game. Woods may find forgive-
ness from his'wife, friends and
followers, but forgiveness will
never erase the actions from his
mind. It will be years-if ever-
before he can tee up a ball with-
out thinking about his actions,
and the thoughts will destroy his


swing.
It shouldn't come as a sur-
prise, but students of psychology
are aware that human nature is
the one never-changing element
in the lives of men.
Secondly, look at the lives of
the three men mentioned earlier:
Clinton, Sanford and Edwards.
All three, one might say, made
public their mea culpa,.at-tfhe
height of their professions.
Could any of the three be
elected again to the offices they
once held? Can anyone name a
person whose career was im-
proved by an illicit action?
When one of their names comes
up in a casual conversation, do
you think of him as a former
president, governor or senator?

No; Your first thought is that he
is a philanderer.
Because the news is con-
stant.v before us via radio, tele-
vision, newspapers and maga-
zines, we tend to think sin is
more prevalent than in the past,
but I doubt the veracity of such a
conclusion. There are just more
people. Americans continue to
have moral values, and breaking
of marriage vows is repugnant to
the average American. Experi-
ence states rather clearly that
breaking of marriage vows is
serious and has consequences
reaching into tomorrow, and all
the tomorrows to come.

Kudos to new
Sheriff Smith
Dear Editor:
I think that by now the
citizens have a real sheriff; one
who is a law enforcement
officer first and foremost and
one who puts politics way
down on his list of priorities.
He has cleaned up the
attitudes of his officers and has
shown the public that he puts
the interest of the citizen ahead
of everything else.
He has put high-quality law
enforcement officers in key
positions and has admonished
them to keep operational cots
down and overall, protect and
serve exposure at a high level.


'Those who have been
watching the work done by h*
officers recognize that politics,
unlike the previous
administration does not play-a
part in the day-to-day
operation of his office. '
If his administration
continues in the direction it is
headed, then we will see at the
end of his term of office, a
quality of law enforcement and
a great reduction in taxpayer
expenses that compliments
Gordon Smith's promise when
he ran for office.
Personally, I look forward to
a great number of years 6f
service to the public from
Gordon Smith.

"'A Doctor's Confession to the Public...")

Dear friend,
Let me tell you a story...
Twenty years ago I was 1i young man in my mid 20's and life is good, but I woke up one morning
and couldn't get out of bed. I had back pain before but this was different. My low back was "locked up"
and pain is shooting down my spine if I try, to move. Even though I'm in a lot of pain I make it to my
family doctor's office and am prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxers and told to "Take it easy for a
while". That didn't help much. Finally, a friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The
chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then "adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn't hurt, it
actually felt gc A. I got relief, and I was happy again. It worked so well that I went to Chiropractic
College myself.
It's strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their back and neck problems. Also
they come to me with their headaches, migraines, chronic pain, sciatica, shoulderlarm pain, carpal tunnel
syndrome, whiplash from car accidents, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few.
Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. .But I can't really take the credit. My
confession is that I've never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure,
and-the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It's as simple as that!
You Benefit from an Amazing Offer -'Look, I know you're smart. You want to get to the cause of your problems, not just cover
them up with drugs. When you-bring in this article, you will receive my entire new patient exam for $37. That's an exam, x-ra'ys and a
report of the findings... the Whole ball of wax. This can normally cost up to $250 -or more, but please call right away because this offer
expires at the end of the month, and I don't want you to miss out. By the way, furtherr care" is very affordabI6 and you'll be happy to
know that I have'affbidable family plans. You see, I'm not trying to seduce you to come see me with this low~ start up fee, then to only
make it up with high fees after that. "Further Care" is very im ortant to consider when making your choice of doctor. -High costs can
add up very quickly,
My assistants are Cheryl and Vivian, and they are* both really great people,:Our office is both fn~endly and warm and we try our
best make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called STARKE CHIROPRACTIC and
it is at 225 S. Orange St. (We are across from Winn Dixie). Our phone number is 904-368-0011. Call Cheryl, Vivian or me today for
an appointment. We can help -you. Thank you, Martin Slaughter, D.C. Chiropractic Physiciafi.

Most of the credit, he said,
goes to the athletes whose per-
