Family fight leads to auto theft, crash, injured child


A 30-year-old
Starke man was
booked into the
Bradford County
Jail on Feb. 17 af-
ter leading officers
from two agencies
on a chase through
Starke and the sur-
rounding area and
then flipping his
vehicle with a five-


Mnos


year-old inside.
Starke Police
Department Officer Kelli McMahan
responded to a Market Road residence
due to a report of a physical altercation
between family members.
The victim told McMahan that he and
Christopher Lee Moss, 30, of Starke
had gotten into a verbal argument that
led to a physical altercation. Witnesses
told McMahan that Moss had choked
the victim, slammed his head against
a nearby vehicle and dislocated his
thumb. The victim fought back, strik-


ing Moss ht least once.
Moss then allegedly jumped into the
victim's Nissan Pathfinder, which con-
tained Moss' own five-year-old child.
The child was not in a car seat and was
not wearing a seatbelt. The victim and
witnesses stated that the victim yelled at
Moss to get out of the vehicle and tried
to remove the child from the vehicle
before Moss drove off. Moss allegedly
accelerated in reverse out of the drive-
way, hitting the victim with the open
car door, and then speeding off.
SPD Officer Matthew Watson saw
the Pathfinder a short time later and be-
gan to follow. Watson was advised that
there was an unsecured child in the ve-
hicle and he stated that he turned off his
lights and siren and fell back-hoping
that Moss would slow down and drive
more carefully. Watson maintained vi-
sual contact, but did not actively pursue
Moss.

Stats show fewer discipline referrals in BC schools


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


The Bradford County School District
is reporting an improvement in disci-
pline, with credit going to the incorpo-
ration of the positive behavior support
strategy.
The numbers show a decline of
icearl\ 300 discipline referrals for the
first semester when comparing 2010 to
2009. That represents an almost 25 per-
cent drop.
"We have a schoolwvide implemen-
tation of (positive behavior support).
and we do believe that has contributed
rc.-ll to think Assistant Superinten-
dent Lisa Prealtt said during a school
board workshop last week.
Positive behavior support utilizes
positive reinforcement to encourage
students to make the right choices. Pre-
vatt was emphatic, however, that this


includes letting students know exactly
what standard of behavior is expected
of them and utilizing both intervention
and consequences when those standards
are not met.
Work is being done to help some
teachers better understand what consti-
tutes intervention and when :he\ should
move on to discipline. Even though that
may result in additional referrals during
this semester, the overall number is still
expected to be down from last )ear. ac-
cording to Prevatt.
Positive behavior support was never
meant to take the place of consequenc-
es, she said. Positive reinforcement and
punishment are hoth needed for a bal-
anced and successful program.
The campuses tend to have more re-
ferrals for disobedience and insubordi-
nation, as well as disruptive and inap-
propriate behavior, than most anything
else. Skipping class and leaving cam-


pus are problematic at the high school
(less so, but still notable at the career
center). At the middle school, it's get-
ting to class on time, and fighting hasn't
declined much. Referrals for dress code
violation, however, have disappeared.
Overall, the number of referrals in
the first semester was down at both
schools, and by a great deal at the high
school-around 56 percent.
Brooker and Southside actually saw
increases in referrals during the,first
semester. Prevatt explained those inci-
dents reported as battery at Brooker and
Hampton amounted to one student hit-
ting or shoving another, incidents that
may have been reported under different,
less serious categories at other schools.
The smaller schools do not have higher
rates of battery, she said.
Referrals at the career center in-
creased, but it has also absorbed the
Renaissance Center, which reported


a number of referrals of its own last
year.:
At the larger elementary schools-
Starke and Southside-be incidences of
inappropriate behavior and bus infrac-
tions top the list. Reports of both were
up at Southside, accounting for part of
the increase in referrals there.

It's FFA week...


Two arrested for meth lab


Two High Ridge residents were
arrested on Feb. 15 by Clay County
Sheriff's Office deputies for attempting
to build a lab to manufacture
methamphetamines.
According to the CCSO report,
William Peggs, 39 and Teresa Ann
Konopa,40, of Yale Street were arrested
after buying large quantities of sodium
hydroxide and muriatic acid from Ace
Hardware. They then tried to purchase
a large quantity of pseudoephedrine,
but were turned away by the pharmacy
for making a request that exceeded the
amount usually allowed for a 30-day
prescription.
The pair had been visited by CCSO


Officers Hanlin and Lavaron in January;
at that point officers found insufficient
evidence to make an arrest.
Since then, Konopa had purchased
pseudoephedrine on three separate
occasions, until she was blocked by the
pharmacy on Feb. 15.
With a search warrant, the officers
found numerous items throughout
the home and a shed nearby, common
household items, but which taken
together can be used to manufacture
methamphetamines.
The couple was arrested and
transported to the Clay County Jail.


It's FFA week, but these kids, their advisors and sponsors stay busy all year long. Just take a look
at what they've accomplished so far this year, which got started with their first ever rodeo at the fair
grounds. Livestock and forestry judging came soon after, punctuated by a peanut boil thrown for their
parents. The Ag Expo in Moultrie and the National FFA Convention followed. All of that was tackled by
the end of October. November began with the Jacksonville Fair and a workday at the agriculture farm.
FFA members were tested on their knowledge of tools, and November and December also brought the
organization's food drives and parade participation. Subdistricts were also held in December, followed
by the district contest in January. Then there were the soil and horse judging competitions. They
stay busy, and FFA week Is no different. Pictured above at the horse judging competition are Lauren
Sellers, Destiqy Griffith, Chelsey Dorminey, Kara Hallman, Shaina Harden and Alec Harden. For more on

School officials mull return to seven-period day


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

School officials are consider-
ing returning to a seven-period
day at Bradford High School.
Advantages include allowing
students to take more elective,
vocational and college classes.
It could also help turn around the
school's graduation rate, which
suffers when students cannot
graduate on time.
Superintendent Beth Moore
contacted schools with higher
graduation rates and said she
found the) all had seven-period
days or block scheduling (lon-
ger class periods and alternating
days). Local administrators seem
to be positive about a change,
Moore said, but both pros and
cons 'were discussed in a school
board workshop last week.
BHS Principal Doug Thoburn
explained that, with a six period
day, students have exactly 24
changes to get the 24 credits they
need to graduate.
"(That) means that a student
can't stumble at any time along
their four-year journey and hope
to fulfill a 24-credit graduation
requirement," Thoburn said.
According to the principal, a
clock begins ticking down for
every freshman when they en-
ter high school, and those who
don't graduate with their class-
mates four years later are essen-
tially considered dropouts when
it comes time to calculate the
school's graduation rate.
Moving to a seven-period day,
Thoburn said, would give stu-
dents four additional chances to
earn credits and make up credits
they have lost.
Thoburn also said it gives the
school an additional period each
day to get students involved with
courses at the Bradford-Union
Area Career Technical Center.
Increased academic require-
ments have reduced opportuni-
ties for students to expand their
edutption with these courses, ac-
cording to career center Director
Randy Starling.
"When everything shakes out,
they have no room left, basically,
for electives," he said.
. At the same time, if more stu-
dents took career and technical
courses, it could help improve
the high school's annual grade-
as well as broaden students' ho-
rizons and job opportunities-
since the number of students
obtaining industry certification
through those courses results in
more points for the school.
Moore pointed out that while
the state will not fund a seventh
period, vocational programs re-
ceived weighted funding, and
that funding could hopefully help
cover the added cost of a seven-
period day.
Changes at the high school
would necessitate some changes
at the middle school, but admin-
istrators don't want to go with a
seven-period day there. Instead,
Moore suggested a rolling sched-
ule, which would allow for one
lengthened course per day. On
one day, first period would be
longer, then second period the
next day, and so on, with the cy-
cle repeating every six days.
This presents some challenges

of its own, mostly for teachers,
who would have to prepare les-
son plans around having one lon-
ger class period each day.
On the plus 'side, however,
there would be a greater oppor-
tunity for project-based learning,
Moore said, such as experiments
in science courses.
It could help deal with some
of the issues the middle school
is facing, like falling test scores.
Assistant Superintendent Lisa
Prevatt explained a longer pe-
riod each day, could provide
more chances to intervene with
students who are struggling and
need remediation.
"Right now, there is no such
opportunity with the six periods,
so this would really give them
that flexibility," Prevatt said.
BMS Assistant Principal Deb-
bie Parmenter said there also
would be drawbacks to a block
period at the middle school, such
as increased teacher burnout,
which is something they've seen
just with the two-hour reading
improvement class required for
some students.
School Board Member Stacey
Creighton said the rolling block
schedule could be confusing, as
well, and suggested the school
look at extending the time stu-
dents spend daily in each of its
six periods instead if additional
time for remedial work is need-
ed.
The transportation department
said the district might actually
save some money by chang-
ing schedules, even though they'
would need to hire additional
bus drivers, because the length
and number of trips could be re-
duced. Changes would include
putting different age groups back
on the buses at the same time.
The idea is something admin-
istrators will continue to kick
around until a decision is made,
perhaps at the March board
meeting. Another workshop will
take place on potential schedule
changes at the middle and high
school before that meeting.
Board Chairwoman Vivian
Chappell said seven periods and
block schedules have been tried
before. The district needs to find
what works best and commit to
that, she said.
"My concern is every time I
turn around, we're wanting to
change it," Chappell said. "We
need to know which one is the
best one, and get with it and stay
with it."
If it will raise the graduation
rate, she added, then the district
needs to make the change.
There was some discussion


about what would happen if stu-
dents obtained the necessary 24
credits and wanted to graduate
early. However, there are ben-
efits to persuade students to stay
on, like the ability to take college
courses and receive credit for no
cost while still enrolled at the
high school. Even early gradu-
ates, however, would benefit the
school's graduation rate, Tho-
burn said.

In other business:
The board also discussed
changes to the pupil progression
plan. Among them was recogni-
tion of the end of course exam
that will need to be passed for
credit in Algebra I. Performance
on this final exam will also make
up 30 percent of a high school
student's second semester math
grade, a state requirement.
As for Algebra students at the
middle school, they will also take
the end of course exam. It is not
required by the state, but Prevatt
said taking the test is important
for determining mastery of the
material. Grades would not be
impacted by the test, although it
would tell the school which stu-
dents should retake the course to
master the material at the high
school.
Board members did not, how-
ever, agree that current middle
school students taking Algebra
should be denied high school
credit if they do not pass the
exam this year. That was not al-
ready explicitly stated in the pro-
gression plan, and report cards
already show the students have
earned half a credit for the first
semester.
Prevatt said students who
don't pass the exam but receive
high school credit for the class
and move on to Algebra II would
not be ready for the advanced
course work. Retaking Algebra
I at BHS would lead to greater
success, she said. If they don't
pass the e\am but still get the
high school credit, the) \\ill still
need remediation before continu-
ing \with higher math.
Iarmenter said B1MS students
ha\e been told all along the\
would need to pass thl e\am for
high sctluxl credit.
Middle 'school credits would d
not he Callclctd one \\ai\ or the
other by taking the e\ani. The
board attorncs is, how\ e\er, look-
ing into the possible rainifica-
tions of changing the progression
plan mid',car to deny the high
school credit to those \\ ho do not
pass.

Starke postpones decision


on senior center site plan


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

.Bradford County Comnmis-
sioners moved to finalize a con-
tract for the construction of their
planned senior center last week,
but they were left scratching their
heads by a further delay caused
when city of Starke refused to
move on approving the site plan.
As previously noted,the county
intends to build the senior center
alongside the health department
on the north end of town where it
will share access from U.S. 301
via the existing driveway.
:Starke Commissioners Tommy
Chastain and Carolyn Spooner,in
particular, raised concerns about
the traffic opening the senior cen-
ter at that location would create.
Chastain spoke about potential
danger, but also about the city's
liability if it were to approve the
site plan.
A motion to approve the site
plan was eventually withdrawn
after the commissioners said they
wanted traffic study informa-
tion from Florida Department.of
Transportation and a letter from
FDOT addressing the matter.
It was a lengthy discussion as a
confounded engineer represent-
ing the county in the site plan ap-
proval request repeatedly tried to

Showdown over
cell phone use
Ironically, one of the least
prominent discipline problems
at the high school caused the
mos&conflict during last week's
school board workshop.
Referrals for display of a cell
phone fell from 11 to I, while
two students in the first semester
of each year were written up for
cell phone use. Though not a ma-
jor source of referrals in the first
place, the number has dropped
as BHS Principal Doug Thoburn
asked for a more lenient policy.
insteadd of strictly forbidding
them being out in the open, Tho-
burn said the school has strived


explain that FDOT had already
examined the plans and issued
the only permit required, which
related to the project's drainage.
There was even correspondence
from the city's own engineer rec-
ommending approval.
While amicable when meeting
together, it's no secret the boards
have clashed, primarily over the
city's request for money to build
a recreation facility and an am-
phitheater, which the county has
denied. For its part the city has
refused to ante up fully for the
cost of animal control, and its
utility rates hit other local gov-
ernments as hard as residents and
businesses.
County Chairman Eddie Lewis
responded to the city's perceived
stubbornness over the site plan
two nights following the city's
rejection, asking the county
manager outright what had hap-
pened.
"How did we get turned down
by the city of Starke to build a se-
nior center on 301? What is that?
It's crazy," Lewis said.
County Manager Brad Carter
explained what the county's
engineer had told the city com-
mission-that the county has all
it needs from FDOT to proceed.
The county confirmed that again
with FDOT after the city com-


to recognize that cell phones can
actually play a role in the class-
room, functioning as calculators,
calendars and other useful tools.
Students are still not allowed to
use them inappropriately to make
calls, write text messages or play
games during class,although they
may be used outside of class.
School Board Member Sta-
cey Creighton indicated that not
everyone was pleased with the
policy change, saying teachers
have complained to her that they
are fighting a battle for attention
with cell phones every day. She
challenged Thoburn and asked if
there were really only three in-
cidents of cell phone display or
misuse at the school written up
during the first semester.
Thoburn discussed the policy
and said many teachers who ad-
dress misuse immediately when

that will be necessary to resolve,
any traffic concerns.
The city had wanted a let-
ter from FDOT, but Carter said
FDOT doesn't write letters; it ei-
ther requires and issues permits
or it does not. In this case, no ad-
ditional permit is needed.
While the county commission
extended its moratorium on im-

last week, County Commissioner
Doyle Thomas asked about the
city's higher impact fees and was
told they are still in full effect.
Carter estimated the city would
take in $15,000 in impact fees
from the senior center project.
"For a senior center for the se-
nior citizens of Bradford Coun-

That was an estimate, and
Carter said he had asked for an
exact amount. Money to cover
the impact fees has been set aside
in the construction budget, which
is made up of a state grant.
The county did approve the
contract with M&R Construction
last Thursday; $257,000 will go
to the contractor, and the other
$157,000 will go toward the di-

county.

policy under which phones could
not be displayed at all.
"They would like it if we could
address it now, because they're
battling for attention. Even par-

Thoburn said none of the
teachers at BHS had discussed
policy change with him.

It's a small event still strug-

This week at BHS is only a
four-day school week! Hopefully
everyone had a fabulous three-
day weekend and a wonderful
Presidents Day off.
The basketball team had
their semifinal game on Feb. 22
against Ribault High School. The
softball team had a home game
-on Feb. 22 against West Nassau.
On Feb. 24, the jv softball team
lhas a home game against Inter-
lachen High School.
SFeb. 25-26 is solo and ensem-


ble for the band students. The stu-
dents have either a solo prepared
or a group of students, that are
playing together, have a piece of
music prepared to bejudged. The
event is being hosted at Buch-
holz High School for both days.
If a student is playing a grade
five piece of music or higher and
receives a superior rating, then
they will get to participate in
state solo and ensemble.
Next week, March 1-3, is
FCAT Writes that includes


grades four, eight and 10. May
the force be with y'all!
Quote for the week: "Jealousy
is a disease, love is a healthy
condition. The immature mind
often mistakes one for the other,
or assumes that the greater the
love, the greater the jealousy -
in fact, they're almost incompat-
ible; one emotion hardly leaves
room for the other. Both at once
can produce unbearable turmoil."

World Day of
Prayer is
March 4
People in more than 170 coun-
tries and regions will celebrate
World Day of Prayer Friday,
March 4.
The women of Chile have
written the service around the
theme "How Many Loaves Have
You?" It is a message that asks
the faithful to examine what they
have and how they can share it
with others. Chile, for example,
has been challenged by a dev-
astating earthquake. The faith-
ful are reminded to share their
bread and accept the bread that is
shared with them.


Locally, this year's service
will be held on March 4 at Kings-
ley Lake Baptist Church at 11:30
a.m. A nursery will be provided,
and the service will be followed
by a covered dish lunch.
Invite friends and family
to join the women of Chile in
prayer and song to support wom-
en's ecumenical ministries to-
ward justice, peace, healing and
wholeness.
The annual offering will sup-
port the work of World Day of
Prayer USA and help to meet the
needs of families who are victims
of poverty, violence and human
trafficking.
World Day of Prayer is a
worldwide' ecumenical move-
ment of women of many Chris-


tian traditions who come togeth-
er to observe a common day of
prayer each year on the first Fri-
day in March. Services begin at
sunrise in the Pacific and follow
the sun across the globe on the
day of the celebration.
Each year a different country
serves as the writer of the World
Day of Prayer worship service.

passing attempts and veering
from lane to lane, the Pathfinder
finally slowed down to drive on
the shoulder of the road.


Watson said he attempted to
place his patrol vehicle between
the Pathfinder and the road to
prevent Moss from driving back
onto the roadway. Moss execut-

Watson, causing the Pathfinder
to strike the front of Watson's,

was able to get enough traction to

once more. Watson's patrol car
was stuck for a short time.
Bradford County Sheriff's Of-

up the chase, with assistance
from Officer McMahan, who
had joined the pursuit by this

Mahan's patrol car also wound

Regional ,-n ,' S ,,rts Editor
Darrin Blye made two free
throws with 14 seconds left in
overtime, while Justin
McBride scored off of a
rebound putback to give the
Bradford boys' basketball
team a 56-54 win over visiting
Ribault in a Region I-Class 3A
semifinal game on Feb. 22.
Bradford, which will play
for its first regional
championship since 2001, will
host Tallahassee Rickards on
Saturday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. for
the right to go to Lakeland,
where the state semifinals and
finals are played.
"It feels good," Bradford
senior forward Ya'keem
Griner said. "We're in the final
eight, so we feel good. We've
got one more game to get to
Lakeland, three more to win it
all."
Head coach Traavis
Chandler exhaled and said one
\\ord immediately afterward:
"Relieved." He knew his team
was in for a hard-fought game
against a program with quite a
tradition. Ribault, which has
won 12 state championships,
was in the postseason for the
20'" straight year.
"I knew we were going to
have to come out and fight for
four quarters," Chandler said.
"I'm proud of the guys. They
did that tonight. They didn't
want to go home. It showed on
the floor tonight."
Actually, the Tornadoes (24-
7) had to play four quarters
and four minutes beyond as
they couldn't hold onto a
seven-point lead with 1:30 left
to play in regulation. Griner
scored on a layup that was set
up by Treyonte Covington's
drive into the lane to put
Bradford up 47-41. Covington
later made a free throw to
make the score 48-41.
Ribault's Leondre Huey
drained his fifth 3-pointer of
the game following teammate
Darius Washington's rebound.
Damien Fleming then hit a 3-
pointer following a backcourt
turnover by Bradford, pulling
the Trojans (20-5) to within a
point with 1:10 to play.
Another backcourt turnover
led to Fleming earning a trip to
the foul line. He made I-of-2
attempts to tie the score at 48-
all with 43 seconds on the
clock.
Bradford committed another
turnover, but McBride blocked
a shot attempt, which then
forced Fleming to try to hit a
desperation trey before time
expired. Fleming's shot was
off the mark, sending the game
into overtime.
McBride scored immediately

from Tramaine Harris. He was
fouled on the play and made
the ensuing free throw to put
the Tornadoes up 51-48.
Griner cut to the basket and
scored on a pass from Blye to
make it a five-point game.


Ribault had two consecutive
scores before Blye was fouled
to set up a one-and-one
opportunity. Blye sank the
front end and then hit the
bonus to make the score 55-52.
Fleming was able to score

Covington had 13. McBride

nine.
Covington, who played such
a big role in Bradford's win
over Episcopal in the regional
quarterfinals (see related
story), provided a spark from
long range as the Tornadoes
struggled for points in the


second quarter.
Bradford, which trailed 14-
11 after Ribault closed the first
quarter with a 6-0 run, failed to
score in the first five-plus
minutes of the second quarter.

Katelyn Sims named Santa Fe College Woman of Promise


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
It would be so easy for
Katelyn Sims to feel sorry for
herself, get down in the dumps
and not experience life to its
,fullest, but that is not the way
she approaches life. She does
what she wants to do despite
battling a disease that could
end her life any day now,
She's also not content to sit
around, hoping a cure will be
found one day. She takes an
active role in trying to find a
cure, but does so not so much
for herself, but for those who
come after her.
It is that spirit of never
giving up and her desire to
help others that led Santa Fe
College to name Sims one of
two Women of Promise for


2011.
Each year, Santa Fe honors
Women of Distinction and
Women of Promise in March
in honor of Women's History
Month. Sims, fellow Woman
of Promise Muna Oli and
Women of Distinction Garrett
Bell, Teresa Drake, Theresa
Harrison, Marilyn Nye-Islam
and Kim Tuttle will be
honored Tuesday, March 1, at
an 11:30 a.m. luncheon at the
UF Hilton in Gainesville.
"She is a living miracle and
an inspiration to not only
Bradford County, but for many
others," Paula Register, owner
of the Hampton Lake Bed and
Breakfast, wrote about Sims in
a letter of nomination for the
Woman of Promise honor.
Sims, the 20-year-old


Katelyn Sims of
Lawtey has
been named a
Santa Fe Col-
lege Woman of
Promisein n..
honor of
Women's His-
tory Month in
March. Sims,
along with one
other Woman of
Promise and
five Women of
Distinction, will
be honored at a
March 1 lunch-
eon.

daughter of I)avid and Leisa in a thick, sticky mucus
Sims of I0awley, has cystic clogging the lungs and
fibrosis, a disease that results obstructing the pancreas. It


also prevents natural enzymes
-from helping the body break
down and absorb food.
At one point, doctors said
Sims wouldn't live past the
age of 12. Later, she was not
supposed to live past the age of
16.
In another letter of
nomination, Mary Powell,
executive assistant at Capital
City Bank of Starke, wrote:
"She has a great love for life
and lives every moment as if it
was her last, for it may be.
You see, Katie wasn't
supposed to be here today,
according to doctors.
However, she never gives up
on life and making the most of
it-for herself and for others.
"Katie has taught me a lot
about living."


Sims a 2009 Bradford High
School graduate, was very
active in school, whether it
was taking part in FFA, Alpha
Phi Beta, cheerleading or
sports such as softball. This
despite the fact she suffers
from a disease that hinders her
breathing and requires her to
spend at least two weeks in the
hospital every month,
receiving intravenous
medication and breathing
treatments, as well as
undergoing respiratory therapy
and physical therapy.
"Katelyn attacks life with a
zest that we should all
emulate," Bradford County
Supervisor of Elections Terry
Vaughan wrote in a letter of

Letters to the Editor


We need to work
together
Dear Editor:
What's happening right now
in, Wisconsin? Surely, you've
seen the news. A newly elected
governor, keeping a promise on
wfiich he success-
fully campaigned, is trying to
balance the state budget many
different ways. Wisconsin even
has a law that states they have to
govern with a balanced budget.
One of the many ways to
achieve a balanced budget is to
have state workers begin con-
tributing to their own pensions
aid paying more for their health
care premiums from 6% up to
12.6%, This new rate is still
blow the national average for
other states and for private sec-
to workers.
The budget deficit in Wiscon-
sin is $137 million this year.
Over the next two years, the
protected budget deficit will
mufiply by a factor of 26 -
to$3.6 billion. Obviously, ac-
tion is necessary and responsi-
blt.
It can be argued that Wiscon-
sin's state employees are over-
paiid compared to their private-
sector counterparts. We'could
argue point for point about the
role of unions in government,
etc. We could do the Democrat
vs. Republican jawing you're
seeing on TV. But none of that
stuff approaches what really
matters in this situation.
The people of Wisconsin
cannot afford the government
they have created and built over
the years. This is reality. They
simply have to reduce spending
for their state government to
survive.
There are 5.6 million people
living in the state of Wisconsin.
The state is spending $32 billion
per year of taxpayers' hard
earned money. That's $5,714 per
person. The per-capita income
of the state (how much each
person living in Wisconsin earns
per year) is only $25,000. Thus,
the people of Wisconsin are
spending 20% of their total in-
come on their state government.
Add another 20% of their earn-
ings to pay for the federal gov-
emrnment...and another 3%
for city and county government.
When you add it up, you'll
find government now makes up"
about 43% of the economy. The


same is true almost everywhere
in the United States. It should be
obvious to any rational, thinking
person that when we're spending
more than 40% of our the tax-
payers' earnings, to govern our-
selves, we are headed for bank-
ruptcy at all levels of govern-
ment. The budget crisis in Wis-
consin is merely the first of
these wake-up calls. Many more
states will quickly follow...as
will the federal government.
Acting decisively at the state
and federal level is our only
solution.
To achieve success,
all Americans should work to-
gether...including government
workers. The -unemployment
rate among government workers
is less than 2% (this is because
new government jobs are grow-
ing at the rate of 15% per year.
In the private sector, jobs are
declining and the unemployment
rate is almost 169 (when you
include those tha t have fallen off
the active claims lists).
Forget the politics...both
sides are in the wrong
here...both political parties have
put us in this position. Do the
math, that's where reality exists.
The answer is to spend less
money. Period.

charging more for gasoline and
diesel than anywhere else in the
county. Prices range from $3.17
at the Citgo, the same price at
the Kangaroo downtown, $3.16
at the BP at S.R. 100 and C.R.
214, and $3.20 at the Chevron
Gizmo at S.R. 100 and C.R,.
214. Diesel rinsf an average of
$3.59 at all the providers.
Now, you can travel north*a

Orange Park and buy gas for
$3.08-$3.09 and diesel for
$3.45-$3.49. These are. prices
from the same providers as we
have in Keystone. A .09-.10
cents less on gas and .10-.14


cents for diesel. Something is
wrong with this picture. We pay
the same federal, state and
county taxes as everyone else in
Clay County. The last time I
looked at a map, Keystone was
still in Clay County.
I believe that local providers
here in Keystone are taking ad-
vantage of the citizens of Key-
stone, by charging higher prices.
It seems in the present time that
these providers would be help-
ing the citizens of Keystone,
instead of getting the highest
prices they can.

BHS defeats
Eagles for 1st
regional win
since '02
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Deion Aldridge and Chris
Walton came off the bench to
make key contributions in the
Bradford boys' basketball
team's win in the District 4-3A
championship game.
This time, it was Treyonte
Covington's turn.
Covington provided the
spark during an 8-0, fourth-
quarter run as the Tornadoes
defeated visiting Episcopal 59-
48 in a Class, 3A regional
quarterfinal game on Feb. 17.
It was the first time the
Tornadoes had recorded a
regional playoff win since
2002. They lost quarterfinal
games in 2003, 2005 and from
2007 through 2010.
Bradford led throughout
most of the game, but in the
second half, the largest that
lead ever got was three points.
It was a one-point Bradford
lead going into the fourth
quarter, but a jumper by
Episcopal's JJ. Kuhlman put
the Eagles up 38-37.
The Tornadoes missed their
first four field-goal attempts of
the quarter, but Covington
scored on a layup following an
Episcopal turnover, which
would be the first of five
straight turnovers by the
visitors. Following what was
his first basket of the game,
Covington came up with a
backcourt steal and scored
again. That was followed by
Ya'keem Griner's steal and
subsequent dunk that made the,
score 43-38.
Covington was sent to the
foul line for a one-and-one
opportunity following another
Episcopal turnover with 3:37
remaining. Covington sank one
free throw to earn the bonus.
and sank the second attempt,
too, to put the Tornadoes up by
seven.
It was a standout
performance overall bh the
Tornadoes at the foul lihe.

However, Ribault only

that time.
-'We didn't panic," Griner
said. "We were still ir there.
W made a lot of mistakes, but
they didn't score either. I knew
we had them."
A score by Griner on a drive

"He struggled the last few
regular season games, so I'm
happy he's stepped up for us
here in the playoffs," Chandler
said of Covington. "We knew
he was big time. We knew\
he'd come through with a big
game. I'm glad it was against
Ribault tonight."
Griner scored six points in
the third quarter, \while Harris
and Walton each had a 3-

go into the fourth quarter up
34-32.
Two 3-pointers by Hucy
kept the Trojans close, and his
3-pointer to open the fourth
quarter gave Ribault .the lead.

"I just wanted to encourage

Spiller said he had a great
supporting cast of friends and
family around him that helped
hin get through the process.
For (Gosha and Holhnes, Spiller
became a member of their
supporting casts. He talked to


about Sims' desire and drive.
"Katelyn is a special, young
womann" Werner wrote. "I
pray nightly that we can stop
this disease so she has th ,
opportunity to, one day,
become a Woman of
Distinction.
"For young people like
Katelyn, this can be iffy.
Although the average age has
risen to 37 years, children are
lost e\ery day to this disease,
so there are no guarantees for
Katelyn or the other 30,000
people in the USA who live

Register wrote that Sims has
goals of graduating from
college, getting married and
having children, but her drive
to do all she can to help raise

cure for cystic fibrosis does
n1ot stemr from ensuring thtl

Good people do their best to provide the best government services possible for the money that's
available. Our county government has done well with finances, but it faces challenges... Property
values county wide are decreasing, taxable values have not followed suit. The budget story below
shows a reflection of what has happened over the past 10 years. The property owner (taxpayer,
voter) paid additional taxes as property values increased and the money went for county services,
salaries, etc. Now the property values are decreasing and the taxable values should follow.



Bradford County relies on fund reserves to balance budget


County commissioners were
presented a balanced budget by
County Clerk Ray Norman last
year, but it is a budget balanced
Sby cash on hand and not new rev-
enue.
The tentative budget for Fis-
cal Year 2011 is just under $32.6
million, down nearly five percent
from $342 million.
Cbunty Clerk Ray Norman said
putting the budget together was
a two-month endeavor started
early because of questions about
how the economy would impact
the budget. Staff met individu-
ally.with commissioners, brief-
ing commissioners and receiving
feedback.
The tentative budget is based
on the same 9.1769-mill tax rate
that has been in place since Fiscal
Year 2008. Taxable value in the
"county was also at"iis highest'in
2008. Since that time it has fallen
by 6.6 percent, and revenue from
ad valorem taxes has fallen by
more than half a million dollars.
Short of property values be-


million projected for 2011--is
helping to fund the increase. Less
money was budgeted on the jail
side of the house, while money
was up some for personnel in the
sheriffs office.
The real increase, however, \ as
under court operations, \where a
new $480,000 line item \was listed
for sheriff and jail life and health
insurance.
The emergency services bud-
get is up from $2.6 million to
$2.9 million. EMS also received a
more generous transfer of general
fund revenue. More is budgeted
for salaries, overtime and retire-
ment contributions.
Reduced tipping fees and as-
sessment collections pushed the
budget for solid \aste down from
$1.49 million to $1.32 million.
A little more toward salaries
and materials purchases bumlped
the library) budget up Iromn $1.39
million to $1.46 million. Part of
the overall reduction in the county
budget is due to less money being
set aside to retire debt on the Pratt

ginning to rise, county commis-
sioners would have to raise the
tax rate in order to recapture that
lost revenue, something they have
chosen not to do so far.
In order to balance the budget,
Norman spid the county had to dip
into reserve funds. Of the $11.3
million of revenue in the general
fund, which includes most ser-
vices and constitutional offices,
more than $2.5 million comes
from fund balances.
"The reason for that is because
revenues for the last three years
have decreased," Norman told the
board. "That's just the economy.
It's no fault of anyone, it's the
economy."
Commissioners look to Nor-
man as the budget watchman, and'
he told them that short of an emer-
gency, it was going to be neces-
sary to stay within the'confines of
budget with no wiggle room.
"We all know we can have a
disaster, but if we do, we'll have
to deal with it at that time," Nor-
man said.
The budget contains no money
for pay raises,and 2011 will make
three years that county employees
have gone without a raise. No
now positions have been funded,
and Norman said when employ-
.ees have left, their positions have
been left vacant, with the excep-
tion of one position in the road
department and positions related
to public safety, like emergency
medical services.
With less funding from the state
for projects, the road department
budget is down from $5.79 mil-
lion to $3.9 million. The fine and
* forfeiture budget covering law en-
forcement and the jail is up from
$5.29 million to $5.72 million.
An increase transfer of revenue
from the general fund-from $1.7
million in 2010 to more than $2.1


Street building.
Transfers mentioned above
helped push the general fund up
to $11.3 million from around $10
million. There was little to no
change in budgets like (he volun-
teer fire department, animal con-
trol and others. The county man-
aged to avoid cutting support for
agencies including ACORN Clin-
ic, the Women's Resource Center,
Meridian, Shands, the chamber
of commerce, ARC of Bradford
County and the Concerned Citi-
zens of Bradford County, but
there were no increases in those
allocations either as some might
have hoped.
Things aren't as bad as they
Could have been, according to
Norman. The Legislature was
persuaded to change its mind on
cuts in library, solid waste and
other support. That was this year,
however, and next year could be a
different story, Norman said.
"As we all know, the state's not
going to have any stimulus money
next year, so we don't know what
they're going to do," said Nor-
man.
The fact that property values
and the property tax revenue are
-down overall does not mean all
landowners are receiving tax cuts.
Assessment is distinct for each
property and where property val-
ues have increased, such as with
the nearly $8 million in value at-
tributed to new construction by
the property appraiser's office, a
larger tax bill can be expected.
Also, because homesteads typi-
cally have a lower taxable value
than their assessed (market) value,
there's still room for taxes to go
up a small percentage each year.
In Alachua, property values
were down around four percent,
and the county planned cuts to
general fund spending. Alachua

County also plans on raising the
tax rate to offset some of the reve-
nue lost because of lower property
values and to pay for fire services.
Alachua's tentative budget is
more than $327 million, propped
up by higher taxes on tourism and
(gas. Even adjusted down, taxable
value in Alachua is still more than
$12 billion.
Clay County's tentative budget


for next year is more than $251
million, down 15 percent from the
$296 million budget approved for
2010. The property appraiser cer-
tified that taxable property value
was down eight percent. There's
still a lot of value to tax-m-ore
than $8.6 billion.
Baker ('ount\ 's budget is mullh
more in line \\ith l rdflord's.
There, property values were do\\n


by 1.75 percent according to fig-
ures provided last Friday. While
that wouldn't result in a tremen-
dous loss in ad valorem revenue
for Baker Count), it looks like
sizable spending cuts are -under
consideration. As of Fridnaythe
tentative budget was set.at around
$24 million, down from $32.7
million.
Baker County does levy a
significantly lower tax rate on
property o\\ners, 7.1495 mills in


2010.
Union County's tax rate is
maxed out at 10 mills. It is draw-'
ing on a smaller taxable value, but
unlike these other counties, Union
is adding taxable value to its rolls.
Taxable value was up around two
percent to almost $228.2 mil-
lion. Union commissioners are
also looking at a budget increase.
The tentative budget is up slightly
from $5.34 million to $5.44 mil-
lion..

Tough times require tough people

are going down in all Florida
counties. The tax assessors in
our neighboring counties are
decreasing assessments. Bradford
County taxpayers deserve no less.
The county commissioners cannot
hide under Property Appraiser
Jimmy Alvarez's skirt. Allow our
values to go up and down as the
market dictates. (No one person
can dictate property values-only
a willing buyer and a motivated
seller can make a market.) If the
tax revenue does not cover the
cost, then do what every household
in the county does... adjust your
budget. IF THAT IS NOT ENOUGH,
MAN UP AND RAISE TAXES.
Please do not play games with
taxpayers, homeowners and voters.

Harold Starling receives Alligator Creek Garden Club award


The Alligator Creek Garden
Club of Starke has selected
Harold Starling for its
Garden/Yard of the Quarter
award.
Anyone who has traveled on
U.S. 301 in Lawtey in the past
20 years could not help but
notice the beautiful vegetable
garden just south of tbwn. In
warmer months, it also sports
colorful flowers. Often, the
man himself will be seen either
working' in the garden or
sitting there enjoying it and
waving to passers-by.
Starling said he has been
farming or gardening for 70
years. He remembers
following a mule when he was
5, when he was so small he
had to look between the
animal's legs to aim the plow.
He worked the family farm
just west of Lawtey for many
years and moved to his present
home approximately 20 years
ago.
People stop all the time to
talk to him and ask his advice.
Some of those people live in
the North, but gardening there
is quite different than in
Florida. Some folks want to

decision that he was ultimately
responsible for, but his
decision impacted not only
him but the Clemson football
team. He likened the decision
he had made to his faith.
Instead of making a vow to
God, he had made a vow to
Clemson.
Breaking such a vow was
the wrong thing to do in his
mind.
"I didn't want to turn my
back on them," he said.
"T at's kind of what the case
would've been if I -had left.
I'm glad I did (stay), and I'm
glad to be an alumnus."
His production after four
years at Clemson led to him
being a first-round NFL dra[t
choice. He was selected ninth
overall by Buffalo and found
himself making another
transition into the next phase
of his life, just as he had
experienced going from high
school to college.
Spiller said the Buffalo
players from Florida helped
him a lot, as did running backs
Marshawn Lynch-who was
later traded to Seattle-and
Fred Jackson, both of whom
were in their fifth year in the
league.
"There was no jealousy,"
Spiller said. "Sometimes you
get guys who don't want to
help the younger guy, but both
of those guys sat down with
me while we were watching
film and told me what to
expect here."
Spiller admitted he hated to
see Lynch get traded, but the
two keep in touch and
definitely talked after Lynch's

buy produce, but he seldom
sells any. He and his wife,

friends consume most of what
he grows. One lady from

highlight touchdown run in
Seattle's wildcard playoff
victory over New Orleans.
Spiller said Lynch's self-
proclaimed "beast-mode"
persona was on full display
during the 67-yard, multiple-
tackle-breaking run.
"People don't really realize
how strong he is," Spiller said.
The trading of L) nch
showed Spilter the business
side of the NFL, which is what
he experienced as the Bills
organization and his agent
worked on his contract. He
wound up missing II practices
before accepting a five-year,
$25 million deal.
Spiller said it's important to
keep the business side separate
from the football side, and to
not get fooled into thinking
you're any better than anyone
else, no matter how high )ou
were drafted or how much
money you make.
"You've got to let 'our
agent handle that business
side," Spiller said. "It's got to
be done. You can't \\orr\
about what the guys think of
you or anything like that
because all those guys have
gone through the same thing
you're going through.
"Once you get there, just
make sure you're in shape and
ready to go. Don't get caught
up into thinking you're a prima
donna and Mr. Big Shot
because those older guys will
bring you down a little bit."
During his rookie season,
Spiller made more of a mark
on kickoff returns, averaging
23 yards per return with a 95-
yard return for a touchdown on
Sept. 26 against New England.
Out of the backfield, he had 74
carries for 283 yards.
Spiller said he was too
impatient when he got his

chance to carry the ball, not
allowing his blocks to set up.
"I was trying to rush things,"
he said. "I went back and
looked at film. There were a
lot of runs where if I had just
waited probably a hair second,
it might have been a big gain.
"That just comes with the
learning process. It's
something I know I can learn
from going into this second
season.
The Bills, who are looking
to improve upon a 4-12 record,
gained a reputation last season
of playing hard and giving
maximum effort. During one
stretch of the season, the team
had four losses that were all by
three points each.
Spiller said the team.
though, is not satisfied with
simply playing hard.
"By the end of the day, we
still lost the game," he said.
"()f course, \\e were in them,
but tilhe) Lcoulit what's in thai
left column, and that's the
wins.
"I think Ae're going in the
right direction. We've got a
great team and a great
organization. Our GM, Buddy
Nix, and coach (Chan) Gailey
do a great job of bringing in
the right personnel we need.
We just need a couple of
pieces here and there, and I
think we'll be fine."
Spiller has faced several
issues in the league this past
year in violent, unnecessary
hits and the prospect of a work
stoppage this upcoming
season.
As far as a possible lockout,
Spiller said veteran players
have given him and other
younger players one bit of
advice: "Save your money.
That's mainly what the
veterans told all the guys in the
locker room. Save your money

Although his garden is
shaded on the west side, he
gets ample morning sun, and
he believes the afternoon shade
helps his warm-weather crops
survive the heat better. He has

Who is Jesus?
The question-is not new. It has been asked since Jesus
walked the Earth. People today still wonder who Jesus is
and what He can do for their lives.,Who is Jesus?
*Is He the Son of God? Is He a prophet like Islam
suggests?-Is He a good man who taught good principles
to live by? Who is Jesus?
He claimed to be Lord, the Savior of the world. He
claimed He can forgive our sin, set us free, and enable
all of us to live a life of meaning. Is this possible? Can
He forgive adultery? Can He heal an alcoholic or drug
addict? Can He really change a life for the better? Who
is Jesus?
The people of old asked these same questions. In
John chapter eight, Jesus gives six answers that changed
everything. Come hear the evidence and decide if
Jesus Christ can change your life.
