Tuesday's special school board election in District 1 was too close to call, triggering a automatic re-
count. Candidates Sheila Fayson Cummings and Archie Kittles Jr. were separated by a single vote
Tuesday night, meaning the district is still waiting to hear who its next school board representative will
be. As of press time, Supervisor of Elections Terry Vaughan was predicting the recount would probably
take place around 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon, but that wasn't expected to be finalized until Wednesday
morning. Cummings and Kittles both survived the primary to end up in this virtual tie. A total of 411 bal-
lots were cast, placing voter turn out around 21.3 percent.

Teacher of the year takes on new challenge


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Telegraph Staff Writer

Dustin Adams' peers just recognized
his role in reviving the Bradford Middle
School band program by naming him
Bradford County's Teacher of the Year,
and now the fifth-year band director is
trying to revive another program, tak-
ing on leadership of the Bradford Edu-
cation Association.
Like most of his students, Adams
started his music career in the sixth
grade, in Central Missouri. It was there
that the seeds of his teaching career first
took root when he came under the in-
fluence of Keith Ruether. who ran the
band program for the 6'h through 12
grades. Adams recalls that his mentor
had exceptional people skills, and was a
superior communicator.
And that is one ability that Adams'
boss, middle school principal Earnest
Williams, said Adams also excels in.
"He articulates himself very well,"
said the principal. "He balances build-
ing relationships with students and
maintaining discipline."
After high school, Adams went onto
Missouri State University. There he
was taught by another strong educator,
Jerry Hoover. Hoover, is now in his


Dustin Adams
53d' year of directing bands. 20 )ears
in secondary schools, seven years at
New Mexico State University and 15 at
Missouri State. He oversees 18 bands


at the Springfield campus and has gar-
nered recognition for his work from the
governor of New Mexico and President
Ronald Reagan.
After graduating from Missouri State,
Adams was in central Florida looking
for a teaching job when a Bradford ad-
ministrator called.
In his second year, he also led the
high school band program. And even
though he is now exclusively back at the
middle school, Adams keeps an eye on
music programs throughout the county,
from elementary grades through high
school. That is another trait the middle
school principal likes about his bantl
director.
"He's committed to a total program,"
said Earnest Williams.
Adams said he is pleased admin-
istrators recently restarted the music
program at Starke Elementary School.
He added that Bradford County, unlike
other Florida districts, has stayed com-
mitted to funding music programs in
public schools.
He also said that he and high school
band director Jonathan Hall, present a
united front for the county's band pro-
grams.

Starke man

arrested with

child porn on

cell phone
A Starke man
was arrested Febl.
28 by Bradford
County Sheriff's
Office Investigator
Gail Russell after
the completion of
an interstate inves-
tigation prompted
by an alert from the
National Center for
Missing and Ex-- Howell
ploited Children.
The center provides a means to re-
ceive tips from individuals and research
Internet activity that might be related to
adults exploiting children. In August,
the center notified Detective T. Abdul-
lah in Prince William County, Virginia,
that a child. in his jurisdiction was pos-
sibly being exploited. Abdullah, who is
in charge of the Prince William County
Internet Crimes Against Children Unit,
investigated the tip.
Abdullah found that the 15-year-old
male victim had used a cellular phone
to enter an Internet chat room and had
multiple conversations with a person
who had a Florida cell phone number.
The Florida cell phone owner had con-
vinced the victim to.take nude photo-
graphs of himself and e-mail them to
the Florida phone. The child took and
sent approximately 20 photos of him-
self.
The extensive investigation eventu-
ally led Abdullah to Starke.

Fight over

budget,

benefits

begins

Tuesday:

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Florida's legislative session, which
begins next Tuesday, March 8, is al-
ready shaping up to be a controversial
one, with one news organization going
so far as to say explosive.
In some ways, legislators are caught
between a new governor set on keep-
ing his promises to cut spending and
downsize government and a public that
seems to favor those ideas until faced
with the reality that deep cuts will im-
pact areas like education and health
care as well as salaries and benefits for
state employees.
Just as in other states, public employ-
ees are fighting proposed benefit cuts.
Gov. Rick Scott has proposed that em-.
ployees on the state retirement plan pay
5 percent of their salaries into the sys-
tem and increase the amount employees
pay for their health care coverage.
Many state employees have already.
gone without pay raises for five years:
and view the governor's plan as a pay
cut.
Another measure that could be intro-
duced would require some labor unions
(those representing less than 50 percent
of employees) to recertify themselves
as bargaining agents, although one of
the largest; the Police Benevolent As-
sociation representing law enforcement
and correctional officers, would report-
edly be exempt from the requirement.
Another bill would impact how
unions collect and spend union dues.
A third would allow for employees to
dissolve their unions by filing a peti-
tion with the Public Employees Rela-
tions Commission and would require
unions to provide members with annual

Help coming for those facing foreclosure


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Since the beginning of the
housing crisis, Florida has had
had one of the nation's highest
foreclosure rates. Recently the
Mortgage Banker's Association
said Florida was leading the na-
tion in foreclosures.
Nearly one in four properties
in foreclosure in the nation is lo-
cated in this state, and more than
14 percent of the state's mort-
gages were in foreclosure by the
end of 2010; another 5 percent
were past due.
The federal government re-
sponded early last year, and the
U.S. Treasury created a fund for
housing markets caught up in the
crisis and help people hold on to
their homes. The second largest
allocation-more than $1 billion
so far-has been earmarked for
the state of Florida. Not all states
are receiving funding. It is for
those hardest hit by the crisis,
hence the name, Florida's Hard-
est-Hit Fund.
A pilot program in Lee County
received 600 applications for
funding in the first three days last
October, although only a fraction
of the nearly 1,000 applicants
will ultimately qualify for sup-
.port.


ARREST
Continued from page 1A

Abdullah's initial investiga-
tion showed that the Florida cell
phone owner had paid for addi-
tional cell phone minutes for the
Virginia victim's prepaid cell
pholie-so the two could stay in
contact.
The Florida man also alleg-
edly provided a Visa card num-
ber to the Virginia victim so that
he ipould purchase additional
minutes. The victim was unable
to use the number without addi-
tional information, however, and
eventually ran out of minutes.
When the victim stopped
contacting the Florida man, the
man wrote to the Virginia child.
The letter had a return"ai'dress
in Starke, which led Abduilah'
to contact the Bradford County
Sheriff's Office. BCSO inves-
tigators were able to identify
the Florida cell phone owner as
Rhymer Rhuebin Howell, 59, of
Starke.
Investigator Russell contacted
Howell, who allegedly admit-
ted to having approximately 200
pornographic photos of children
stored on his phone. He was
charged March 1 with obscene
communication with a minor.
Other charges are pending fur-
ther investigation. Bond was set
at $100,000 and he remained in
the Bradford County Jail as of
press time.
According to the arrest report,


Statewide rollout of the pro-
gram is expected to occur very
soon, and Bradford's community
development director, Angela
Cooper, is looking at making her
office the local point of contact
for those who are determined eli-
gible.
Cooper said there are two types
of assistance set up by the Flori-
da Housing Finance Corporation.
One is for individuals who have
lost their jobs or who have had
to take a job earning less than
they were before. It will provide
monthly mortgage payments for
a maximum of 18 months or up
to $35,000.
The second type of-assistance
is a one-time allocation that helps
a homeowner in arrears to catch
up on their mortgage by paying
off the past due amount.
There are some restrictions.
Applicants cannot owe more on
the mortgage than the home is
actually worth, and the mortgage
cannot exceed $400,000. It must
be a homestead property. The
applicant cannot be more than
180 days behind in their mort-
gage payments, and they cannot
be facing a permanent reduction
in income. If unemployed, they
must apply for unemployment
benefits.
Additionally, support received


Howell has a prior conviction for
sexual battery on a male child un-
der the age of 11. Howell is not
listed as a registered sex offender
because his conviction occurred
before those registration require-
ments went into affect.

would have to be repaid if the
home is sold in less than five
years or goes into foreclosure.
Cooper said this is not a pro-
gram for people who are in over
their heads and have no way out.
Eligible recipients must demon-
strate that they are capable of get-
ting back on their feet, she said.
Maybe they were involuntarily
unemployed for a few months,
for example, or encountered
some unexpected medical ex-
penses and they just need a hand
to keep from losing their home.
"If there's no end in sight,
they're not going to be eligible,"
she said.
The county would not be mak-
ing a determination about who
receives assistance and who does
not, however. Instead Cooper
said her office would advise,
help applicants submit documen-
tation, etc. Residents actually
apply online and would then be
referred to Cooper's office.
Cooper briefed the county
commission on the program last
month, but plans on bringing
more information following a
training session. a

"There is a participation drop
off from the eighth grade into the
ninth," he said. "We are trying to
improve that by making the tran-
sition from middle school band
to the high school smoother."
Principal Williams also hailed
the band director's leadership
abilities, noting that he sets high
expectations for his students.
That is an attribute Adams rec-
ognized as essential when he
first arrived in Starke in the fall
if 2006.
"When I got here, both the
middle and high school bands
had been without directors for a
few months," he said. "I spent
the first year changing the cul-
ture."
"It's all about the culture," he i
continued;explaining that instill- :

Adams said his biggest chal-

ter to public school teachers and
staff, he addressed head on what
what he said were flawed percep-
tions of the organization:
"Based on personal observa-
tions," he wrote, "it seems there
have been some negative feelings
toward the BEA. It is time to cor-
rect that perception. It is time to
get rid of the idea that unions are
for fighting the administration,
organizing revolts, and lobbying
every time we are not happy."
He added during an interview
that he wants to steer the teach-
ers' union toward collaboration

FIGHT
Continued from page 1A

instruction on how to do so.
This perceived assault on pub-
lic employees and their labor
unions has resulted in protests
around the country, most nota-
bly in Wisconsin, and although
Florida employees have also
begun to organize, they plan a
real show of force for the March
8 Opening of the legislative ses-
sidn with multiple rallies around
the state. The Tea Party is report-
edly planning counter protests in
support of billions of dollars in
proposed spending cuts. In fact,
tlie Tea Party has managed to re-
seive the prime real estate at the
state Capitol for its "Save Our
State" rally.
Those who oppose the changes
being discussed are calling their
movement "Awake the State."
One particular group of pub-
lic employees-teachers-face
changes in how their income is
determined. For the second year
in a row, legislators are trying
to pass a merit pay bill that was
squashed by the former gover-.
nor in 2010. Salaries and per-
formance pay would be tied to
evaluations, 50 percent of which
would be based on student FCAT
performance under the bill filed
by a Jacksonville senator. Ten-
ure, would end for new teachers
as well.
The state's application for
more than $4 billion in Race to
the Top funds was in part predi-
cated on school districts and
teachers coming together on a
plan for evaluating teacher per-
formance. The legislation would
make merit pay the law of the
land, however. It has moved
quickly through committee and
could receive a first vote on day
two of the session.
Federal stimulus funds are dry-
ing up, and the state doesn't have
the money to replace them. In
fact, it is facing another revenue
shortfall. Education funding cuts
havA been proposed as the same
time as expansions in school
voucher and virtual programs
are being recommended. There
has also been a great amount of
talk about cutting taxes and fees,
privatization of some services
and consolidating agencies.
But just because the major-
ityf of !'a,,wakds'g shaY' Gov.
Rick Scott's poititral affiliation
doesn't mean they will go along
with all of the cuts the governor
has proposed. Some, including
Rep. Janet Adkins, have asked the
governor to reexamine the num-
bees, particularly when it comes
to cutting education spending by
$3 3 billion.
Adkins has supported con-
solidation, however, introducing
her own bill to eliminate several
agencies-the Department of.
Health, the Department of Chil-
dren and Family Services, the
Agency for Persons with Disabil-
ities and the Agency for Health
Care Administration-and place
their responsibilities under the
newly created Department of
Health and Human Services.
Another Adkins sponsored
bill addresses the sell of syn-
thdtic marijuana. She is also co-
sponsoring a bill to eliminate the
already postponed septic tank in-
spection requirements.
Sen. Steve Oelrich is backing
Adkins on the creation of the
Department of Health and Hu-"
man Services by filing an iden-
tical bill in the Senate. Oelrich's
other filings include' a bill that
would make playing a car stereo
too loud a moving violation that
would result in points assessed
against driver's licenses.
Adkins and Oelrich have each
filed bills prohibiting electronic
sweepstakes gambling. Oelrich
has also filed legislation that
would create a drug-screening
program for individuals receiv-
ing temporary financial assis-
tance from the state.
Rep. Charles E. Van Zant has
reintroduced the Florida for Life
Act, which would outlaw most
abortions, as well as a bill that
would authorize school boards to
adopt resolutions allowing prayer
at secondary school events.
He is co-sponsoring Adkins


rSynthetic marijuana bill as well.
A couple of other interesting
pieces of legislation:

SA Vero Beach lawmaker has
proposed a bill that would allow
county commissioners and other
elected constitutional officers to
voluntarily lower their own sala-
ries. Salaries are currently based

Scientific questions and an-
swers abounded in the Bradford
Middle School gym during the

questions like does the mass of

what heat insulator works best
were explored.
An all-time high of more than

judged at this year's fair. Sci-
ence Fair Coordinator John Tin-
sler was extremely pleased with
the number of projects that were
completed. He said that doing a

students through the scientific
method. Teachers can describe,
demonstrate and assign work-
sheets about the scientific meth-
od all day long, but until a stu-
dent actually does a project and
goes through the entire process,
they really do not understand it.
While all students who turned
in a science fair project were
awarded a participation rib-
bon, 12 projects were chosen
by the judges as place winners
and awarded ribbons during the
awards program. The third-place
winners were Sarah Frederick
and Sarah Hayes. The second-
place winners were BreeAnn
Brooks, Bailey Creighton, Sierra
Greenwell and Kyle Toombs.
The first-place winners were:
Jaci Atkinson,John Baier,Treav-
or Gilliam, Alec Harden, Juwan
Jefferson, Rachael Ricker, Tessa
Ricker, Brooke Shireman, Noah
Tinsler, Chris Wells and Dylan
Whittemor.

if local leaders would be willing
to do the same.

SLegislators may take on the.
recapture rule, which allows the
taxable values on property to in-
crease even when market values

there is talk of lowering the cap

couragement to train as a group

From the district science fair,
six students went on to compete
in the Suwannee Valley Re-
gional Science Fair in Lake City
at Florida Gateway College the
week of Feb. 14. These students
were: Treavor Gilliam (8'h), Alec
Harden (71'), Jacob King (71)),
Rachel Ricker (81h), Tessa Ricker
(6'h) and Noah Tinsler (6th). Two
students, Treavor Gilliam and
Rachel Ricker placed third in
their respective categories and
won $15 each in prize money.
Two other students, Tessa Ricker
and Noah Tinsler, placed second
in their respective categories and
won $20 each in prize money.
Two of the Bradford students
who went to Regionals, Rachel
Ricker and Noah Tinsler, were
also selected as alternates to go
to the State Science and Engi-
neering Fair in Orlando the week
of March 23. (Noah's project was
an engineering project entitled
"Do Wheels Increase the Dis-
tance of a Trebuchet Throw?")
The winners at the state fair will
advance to the International Sci-
ence and Engineering Fair in Los
Angeles in May.
Additionally, Rachel Ricker
won the Stockholm Junior Wa-
ter Prize. With this award, Ra-
chel has the chance to go on and
compete against other students in
the state of Florida who did sci-
ence projects related to water.
The winners at the state level
will then advance to the national
competition in Chicago.
Tinsler thanked several groups
of people who made science Fair
possible. The first group is all of


the parents and family who sup-
ported their student with their
project. "It is next to impossible
for children to succeed in school
and life without the support of
the adults in their lives," he said.
The second group was all of
the people who volunteered their
time or possessions to make
the fair happen. Included in
this group are volunteers from
Shands of Starke, Capital City
Bank, Santa Fe College, Tobacco

Men reach
out and read
at Starke
Elementary
The most basic element of
any student's success lies in his
or her ability to read, accord-
ing to Starke Elementary media
specialist Shirley Bagwell. With
this in mind, business and com-
munity men gathered at Starke
Elementary School on Feb. 17
to participate in the annual Real
Men Read event. Coordinated by
Bagwell and Starke City Clerk
Linda Johns-and a compo-
nent of Starke Altrusa's literacy
project-the purpose is to model
the importance of reading to stu-
dents.
So many young people never
have the opportunity to have a
man read to them, Bagwell said.
Real Men Read provides an op-
portunity for students to have
two different men read stories to
them and talk to them about their
jobs and the impact that reading
has had on their lives.
Starke Elementary School is
grateful to the men who took time
out of their day to participate in
this event. The 27 men who
participated in Real Men Read
included Jimmy Alvarez, Daryl
Brewer, Dennis Burkhalter, Cliff
Chapman, Bill Dampier, Eddie
Douglas, Matt Dyal, Steve Fu-
tch, Herb Green, Harry Hatcher,

minds area high school seniors

out its service territory.

AMP students show progress following participation


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
S Telegraph Editor
When the Starke Church of
Gid by Faith opened the doors
of its 21" Century Community
Learning Center in 2007, it made
history as the first faith-based
organization in the state to be
awarded CLC funding for such
arnafter-school program,
Since then, the program has
become better known as the
AMP program, which is short for
Achieving Maximum Potential,
anrl that is just what data col-
lected on participants shows they
ar doing.
Avery Shell is the site coordi-
nator, and he said students who
haVe attended the program on
a regularr basis improved their
FCAT math scores an average
ofi68 percent. Similarly, reading
scores increased 70 percent.
These students are bucking
the trend. Schools usually begin
to see scores drop when students
move beyond the elementary lev-


el. AMP students also behavior-
ally improved based on a reduc-
tion in the number of discipline
referrals received, Shell said.
Just as when it began, the pro-
gram is doing this at no cost to
families, and it is open to middle-
school-aged students from the
public school system as well as
private and home-schooled stu-
dents. The only difference is the
enrolled public school students
from the middle school are bused
in by the school district, while
students from other schools
must have other arrangements.
But the program then makes ar-
rangements to transport students
home when sessions end in the
evening.
While the program is nearly at
capacity in terms of enrollment,
attendance is another story. Yet
consistent attendance is impor-
tant to receive the full benefits,
so Shell is constantly trying to
encourage it.
The program also struggles
with diversity, which is unfor-


tunate, Shell said, because the
types of problems they are ad-
dressing aren't race specific.
"There's help needed for all,"
he said.
Students aren't free to do as
they please when they arrive at
the community learning center,
but they do more than study.
AMP offers physical,cultural and
other enrichment opportunities
as well, and they participate in a
safe, supervised environment-
particularly important since af-
ter school is typically when kids
can find themselves getting into
trouble.
Kids arrive at the center af-
ter school and are treated to a
snack before concentrating on
their homework. Following their
homework period, they go out-
side and play sports to get fresh
air and exercise, then it's back
inside for the day's academic
focus session. Licensed teachers
lead sessions on math, reading
and science designed to deepen
students' understanding of the


subjects and improve their test
scores. Students are split into
four manageable groups, and
each group is involved in some-
thing different each day.
In addition to the subject mat-
ter, there is also a day when they
focus on behavior and problem
prevention- learning about mak-
ing better choices. Though the
church pursued funding and pro-
vides a home for the program in
its community center, AMP is not
a religious program. The faithful
who are involved, like Shell, be-
lieve they can lead by example,
however, and kids do receive les-
sons in making the best choices
for their lives regardless of peer
pressure.
Shell also reaches out to the
children in the program both at
the site and on campus to see
what is going on in their lives
and discovering areas where they
can use some guidance.
There are several elective areas
that students can also participate
in, which include playing games,


learning about computers, creat-
ing arts and crafts, and music and
dancing. A typical day runs to
around 6:15 p.m.
AMP educators are proud of
its success stories, like Casper
Paul, who made straight A's dur-
ing the first semester. The pro-
gram encourages excellence in
part by celebrating it. One incen-
tive is the AMP Challenge. Stu-
dents who receive no discipline
referrals, improve their grades in
two of the three subject areas-
reading, math or science-and
attend the program at least 80
percent of the time are treated to
dinner at Western Steer, and their
parents are invited as well. (The
restaurant helps the program out
by discounting the cost of the
meals.)
Nine students met this chal-
lenge during the last nine weeks:
Faith Anderson, Tracey Easley,
Carlton Hankerson, Sha'bryant
Hunter, Taisha McCutchen, Ja-
marian McNeal, Noah Paul,
Chance Sewell and Jarius Thom-


as.
Students also earn credits for
performing well that earns them-
pizza parties and other treats and
lets them shop in the site store.
The program has an enroll-
ment cap, but students who do'
not meet attendance goals can be .
replaced with students who will.
For more information on the pro-
gram, which runs from Monday
through Thursday, call 904-964-:
2435. Families who would like"
to visit and learn more about the';
program can make an appoint- -
ment with Shell. Applications:
are also available at the middle;
school.
Applications are also available:
for the AMP summer program,
which begins at the end of June
and runs through the summer,
featuring the same educational'
and personal enrichment as well
as fun trips.


Palms using federal funds to help serve rural health needs


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Palms Medical Group is a not-
for-profit health care provider
that offers a full range of services
at multiple locations throughout
North Florida. Since last Sep-
tember, that has included Starke.
Palms Medical Group CEO
Anita Riels explained Federally
Qualified Health Centers receive
funding to provide care in medi-
cally underserved areas and to
underinsured or uninsured indi-
viduals.
Locally, Palms has taken up
residence on Georgia Street
alongside Meridian Behavioral
Healthcare, which is located be-
hindthe county courthouse and
EMS station. Riels said their
doors are open to the entire com-
munity, so they see the insured as
well as the uninsured, and those
covered by Medicare or Medic-
aid.
Palms believes in providing
quality care regardless of one's
ability to pay, but in fact, Palms
patients are as likely to be cov-
ered by a private insurer as not,


according to Riels.
"That's kind of what's unique
about Palms Medical Group,"
she said. "We're about a 30-30-
30 mix. Most community health
centers are bout a 50-50 mix and
don't see many (privately insured
patients)."
Services.for the uninsured are
charged on a sliding scale based
upon income level, so office vis-
its can cost as little as $10, and
Palms accepts most types of pri-
vate and public insurance. Docu-
mentation should be provided
during the first and/or subsequent
visits.
The Starke office is a family
practice and offer primary and
preventive care, urgent care, on-
site laboratory testing, hearing/
vision testing, physical exams,
minor surgicAl procedures and
more. Palms also has a referral
network when specialist care
is required. Meridian is a part
of that network, but while they
share a building in Stare, they
operate out of differerseffices,
Riels pointed out.
Dr. James Ivy and physician
assistant Malcolm Hickox have


been serving patients in Starke
for several months now,although
they've been with Palms.for more
than 10 years, Riels said.
Palms, formerly Trenton
Medical Center, has been around
since 1971, with Starke being
,the newest of its eight loca-
tions. In 2009, Trenton Medical
Center Bell Family Health Care
and Branford Health and Well-
ness joined together and offices
added in Gainesville, Williston
and Chiefland were added. Ex-
pansion into Bradford County's
arose naturally from its indigent
population's need for a commu-
nity health center.
To be clear, the Starke center
has not yet been awarded Fed-
erally Qualified Health Center
funding of its own in spite of
needs assessments that have
been conducted and submitted
to the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services, but Palms
decided to use its existing federal
grant.funds .to expand, here to
help serve those, needs.'lt:ipplied
for a change in scope for the use
of those funds, and that request
was granted.


Palms wants to serve the com-
munity and look after its health.
"We try to be a true communi-
ty partner. We want to do things
that are beneficial to the commu-
nities," Riels said.
To encourage more women
to get a Pap test, for example,
Palms regularly offers low-cost,
one-day Pap clinic once a month
at one of its office locations. Free
and low-cost health screenings
were offered during the Palms
open house last September.
Traffic can be slow when start-
ing a new clinic, Riels said, but
the Starke site has gradually been
getting busier.
"We're here to take care of the
entire community, and we want
to have P good working relatipn-
ship with theother proi iders in
the area. We want to be a partner;
not competition," Riels said.


Palms Medical Group has of-
fices in Bell, Branford, Chief-
land,Gainesville, Starke,Trenton
and Williston. The Starke office


is located at 550 W. Georgia St.'

Brush fire threatens homes


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The sound of sirens multiplied
around the city Monday after-
noon as emergency responders
scurried to deal with three sepa-
rate brush fires.
Dry weather, wind and an un-
teAded trash fire combined to set
off a blaze near Edwards Road in
St~rke around 3 p.m.

to. threaten a. barn and nearby
hcdnes.
firefighters turned out in force
toifight the flames and residents
also did what they could to dig
trenches and protect property.
Within minutes of being paged
to:the Edwards Road fire, dis-
patchers were summoning re-
spbnders to a brush fire off of
Southwest 75'h Avenue in the
Safnpson Lake area. Right after
that, they were dispatched to S.R.
23- East where the remains of a
Sunday brush fire had flared up
again.
The S.R. 230 fire also began

the cause of the Sampson Lake

told a WCJB reporter that the
Edwards Road fire was first spot-
ted not by residents but by a fire-
.fighter who smelled the smoke
while standing in the parking lot
of a local bank more than a mile
away. He investigated the area


and discovered the fire burning
out of control.
More than a dozen units from
local agencies responded to that
fire alone.
"It was definitely a close call,"
Johns said.

Workers are introducing the.
program to community physi-

cess for referring patients who
could benefit from the Chronic
Disease Self Management Pro-,
gra!ns called "Living Healthy"
and "Walk With Ease." Patients
who receive a referral from
their physician can register for
evidence-base "Living Healthy"
and "Walk With Ease" programs
that include free weekly classes
on nutrition, medication man-
agement, physical activity and
support in managing their dis-
ease. Research shows that these
programs are safe and they work.
Participants are also eligible to
participate in other health and
\wellness programs offered by El-
der Options.
Living Healthy is a program
developed by a team of research-
ers at Stanford University. The
program may be particularly
beneficial for people who have
more than one health condition
or whose health problems have
begun to interfere with their val-
ued life activities.
There is strong evidence from
published clinical trials that
participation in such programs
can improve physical and psy-
chosocial outcomes and quality
of life for people with chronic
conditions. Participants gain
benefits such as decreased pain
and health distress, while build-
ing their confidence in managing
their own health, staying active.

sicians can refer patients to these
evidenced-based workshops to
help them better manage their
chronic condition and impro e
their health.
The CDC states that at least 80
percent of older Americans are
living with at least one chronic
condition, and 50 percent of
them have at least two condi-

Reigning state champ denies Tornadoes trip to state


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Cameron Coffee's shooting
touch sparked visiting
Tallahassec Rickards in the
second quarter, while Chris
Br\ ant and Jakari Bush
combined for 27 second-half
points as the Raiders claimed
the Region 1-Class 3A
championship by defeating the
Bradford boys' basketball
team 65-49 on Feb. 26.
Bradford (24-8) was seeking
its first trip to the state
semifinals since 1974, but led
onl) once when Chris Walton
made a 3-pointer to open the
,second quarter to put the


Tornadoes up 9-6. Rickards,
which faced Fort Lauderdale
Pine Crest in the a state
semifinal game.on March 2,
scored the next nine points-
all on 3-pointers by Coffee.
Coffee, who made five 3-
pointers overall, connected
from long range once more in
the quarter as the Raiders (23-
7 prior to March 2) took a 22-
15 lead into the half.
The Tornadoes would close
the gap to five briefly at the
start of the third quarter, but
missed shots and missed
opportunities at the foul line
hurt as Rickards took a 16-
point lead into the fourth


quarter.
"I thought we played again
an experienced team
Bradford head coach Traav
Chandler said. "They're tl
defending .state champs. The
know how to win."
Chandler said it came dow
to his team giving such
talented team too mar
attempts at the foul line.
"I thought we were rig!
there in the mix," Chandli
said. "We just kind of set
them to the free-throw line to
much in the second half. Yo
can't give a team like that s
many free points. It came bac
to bite us in the end."
Rickards did not attempt
single free throw in the fir
half, but had 23 attempts in th
second half, making I1
Bradford actually went 14-o
23 from the line as well, bt
the difference was the Raide
made 12 of their first 1
attempts, while the Tornadoe
went 3-of-9 in the first three
quarters.
"We went to the line an
missed," Chandler said. "The
went to the line and mac
them."
Points were hard to come b
as each team scored six poin


in the opening quarter.
st Rickards went up 4-2 on a
" possession that featured two
is offensive rebounds by Jamaal -,
he Dowdell before Bryant scored
ey off of his own rebound. ...* .
Bradford's Darrin Blye
vn answered with a rebound tip-

ny. Bryant, who scored a game-

before it leaves the station


It isn't the greatest
boondoggle Florida residents
have ever seen; the Florida
cross-state canal holds that
honor, seconded only by the
attempted destruction of the
Everglades by greedy people
who should have known better.
I'm talking about the high-
speed rail system, proposed to
run between Tampa and
Orlando, for which
Washington has pledged $2.4
billion to throw down the rat
hole. And that is only the
beginning.
Gov. Rick Scott has told
Washington, "Thanks, but no
thanks," because the cost
overruns will accrue to the
state of Florida, and there will
be. cost overruns without a
doubt. There will also be
continuing operating costs into
eternity of many millions of
dollars a year. Rarely ever do
,projects of this size and
substance come in under
budget. It is the nature of the
beast, especially in
constructing government
projects and in view of the
length of time *in building.
.Plans simply change, always at
added cost.
Proponents of the ill-advised
plan are already plotting a new
ploy to remove any overrun
liability from the state. The
plan' provides for towns along
the route to band together,
forming a corporation to
underwrite unexpected
liability. Can anyone see


mayors and councilmen giving
Washington carte-blanche
authority to raid their bank
accounts? That dog won't
hunt. What advantage is it to
towns and communities along.
the line to have a train whiz by
at 220 miles or more per hour?
Proponents interested in the
long-term success of the rail
line base estimated revenues
on people riding the train, but
just who is going to utilize the
high-speed train, other that
riding it once for the thrill?
First off, in the interest of
saving time, the train will not
be able to stop at each local
station. That would nullify the
high-speed concept. The route
will-adhere to the 1-4 corridor,
with Lakeland being the only
population center large enough
to justify a stopping point,.with
terminals at either end.

How many trains will run
the track each day? It depends
on several variables. A single
track will allow only a limited
number of trains, but quite
likely, only a limited number
will be needed. Passengers will
be drawn from two groups--
Tampa Bay area residents and
tourists, neither of whom will
likely abandon the family car
to ride the train after a one-
time experience.
When we cross one of three
high-rise bridges that were
built in expectation' of
spanning a cross-state canal,
we are reminded that


politicians make some terrible
blunders, and we tax payers
remain to pay the bill. Gov.
Scott is attempting to save us
from ourselves by blocking a
very expensive project that has
very little (if any) saving
virtues by people who look to
profit from the venture, even
though it fails to function as
.envisioned. Visionaries have
read about the high-speed
trains in France and Japan, and
have gotten stars in their
collective eyes. Central Florida
is a far cry from either of the
two nations. Having fast trains
and the short distance of 84
miles between Tampa and
Orlando does not justify the
expenditures of public money.
Gov. Scott campaigned on
the promise to squeeze some
of the fat out of the Florida
budget, but, of course, his
remarks were taken as political
fodder and not taken seriously.
People have come to take
campaign rhetoric as...well,
campaign talk, but Scott was
serious and people have been
caught by surprise.
Some of the economies
effected by Gov. Scott may
pinch each of us, but belt
tightening is the rule of the day
since the nation can no longer
afford the excesses of the past.
A new day is dawning in
America, and we may as well
embrace it. It is here to stay.

3) feeling better takes the pres-

Letters to the Editor


meetings

announced
Dear Editor: -
To. concerned .citizens of our
area: The local Lake Area Tea
Party and Fair Tax Patriots wish
to announce that beginning in
the month of March, meetings
will be held twice a month. They
will be on the second and fourth
Tuesday at the Keystone
American Legion Post 202 at 7
p.m.
On March 22, we are fortu-
nate to have George Roberts,
ardent fair tax supporter, local
insurance businessman, and
former county commissioner,
speaking on what the fair tax
could mean for you, and ex-
plaining why many in the world
of finance are saying it could be
the answer to the financial crisis
our country is facing.
We are a friendly, dedicated
group that would like to invite
the public to come join us and
see for yourself what we're all
about. If you, too, have misgiv-
ings and are worried about
where some of our politicians
are taking this country, come see
what you can do to help. Let's
do our best to see to it that our
children and grandchildren have
a wonderful country to live and
grow up in like we did. We are
non-partisan. We endorse no
candidates. We ascribe to no
particular religion. We come and
we work because we care. How
about you? Will you help?

Don't bury your
head and ignore
our problems
Dear Editor:
Well, I have to say that I am
shocked at the Telegraph's criti-
cism of our county commis-
sioner and heaven forbid the
county tax assessor (he prefers
to be called property appraiser).
In my opinion, your article is
long past due. Had you been the

investigative newspaper that we
deserve, you would have been
looking into the overspending
and overtaxing of our tax asses-
sor and county commission long
before now. For over a year,
there have been property fore-
closures, work layoffs, business
closures and reduced business
incomes.
I have said this on a number
of occasions. The county com-
mission of Bradford County has
shown no concern about the
taxpayer of this county. Like the
gooney-bird, they have buried
their head in the bureaucracy of
local government, showing more
concern for the government than
for the taxpayer who is supposed
to own the government., Need-
less to say, most of these people
have followed suit, burying their
heads in the concept of "leave
me alone." To those who try to
hide behind this concept, I say
this: Don't you realize that this
government, whether it's local,
county, state or federal, will
never leave you alone? Are we
too stupid not to realize that the
primary function of a bureaucrat


is to perpetuate his own exis-
tence? Part of that motivations
to get the people we elect -to
office in their back pocket aid
where in the world is it done aiy
better than in this county? When
less.than 50 percent of the tax-
payers vote, you don't have ia
chance to improve our existence
or for that matter, just maintain-
ing our present circumstance.
Now don't get ready to stor(n
the tax assessor's office because
it won't do you any good. Hle
believes that he is untouchable.il
think he is. And for heaven's
sake, don't try to fault him pub-
licly. I believe that he will findag
way to retaliate.
Whether you care about whvit
happens to you or your neigh-
bor, remember not to blamj
anyone but yourself if you don't
speak out by. iot telling your
commissioner, your tax assessor
or by not voting. If you like
what is being done to you, then
keep your head in the sand ard
don't do anything.

"He made baskets,"
Ch adler said. "We can't make
mistakes like that."
Covington made l-of-2 free
throws at the 3:48 mark of the
second quarter to make it a
five-point game. Walton then
scored in transition, receiving
a pass from Tramaine Harris to
make the score 15-12 .. o
Rickards scored seven of the
:last 10 points of the quarter.
SDowdell scored off of a
rebound putback, while
Bradford's Ya'keem Griner
.answered by driving the


baseline, scoring and drawing
.a foul. Griner's made free
throw made it 17-15.
Bryant scored off of Bush's
penetration, then rebounded a
missed 3-pointer by Bradford
at the other end.
Coffee's'fpurth 3-pointer of
the quarter sent the Raiders
into the locker room up by
seven.
Griner, who led Bradford
with 15 points, .drove on
Bryant and scored to open the
"third quarter, but Bryant
answered with a basket of his
own, a defensive rebound and
two free throws.
A rebound score and
subsequent free throw- by
Griner made the score 26-20,


which is as close as Bradford
would get the rest of the way.
Rickards scored the next five
points.
The Tornadoes had a chance
to cut into the lead when they
cut it to eight after a basket by
Harris. Rickards turned the
ball over after failing to make
an inbounds pass against the
Bradford defense. The Raiders
were then whistled for an
intentional foul, setting up two
free throws and allowing the
Tornadoes to maintaind
possession.
Bradford missed both free
throws, however, and turned
the ball over on the subsequent
possession.
Dowdell's rebound of a
missed free throw by Bryant
and score put the Raiders up
by 11. Bryant later scored and
made a free throw to send the
Raiders into the fourth quarter
up 41-25.
The Tornadoes missed
another pair of free throws at
the end of the quarter as well
as misfiring on two 3-point
attempts.
Walton made a 3-pointer
early in the fourth, but it was
the only successful basket
from beyond the arc for
Bradford in its last eight
attempts.
A dunk by Griner off of his
own steal made the score 46-
33. Bradford forced a
backcourt turnover and got a
score from Deantre Burch to

in the third inning and got 12
strikeouts in a complete-game
outing from Kendall Norman
indefeating Union County 10-
2:in a District 4-3A baseball
matchup on Feb. 28 in Lake
Butler.
The win snapped a four-
game losing streak for the
Tornadoes (2-4).
Norman helped his team's
cause before he even took the
mogld, hitting a two-run
homer in the top of the first.
That 2-0 lead held until the
third inning, when the
Tornadoes took advantage of
five walks, three wild pitches
and one error to score seven
runs.
Ryan McKeown, who drew
a. walk in all three of his-at-..
bats, walked to lead off-thetepw -.,,
of the third and. moved to
second on Tyler Yowell's
second straight sacrifice bunt.


Norman reached on a walk
also before Bradford 16aded
the bases on a single by Dylan
Manning.
McKeown scored on a wild
pitch with Austin Chipoletti at
bat. Chipoletti then hit a single
to push another run across,
making it a 4-0 game.
Jackson Eaves delivered an
RBI single right after
Chipoletti's, while Chipoletti
eventually scored on a wild
pitch. A Dylan Bradley single,
which was misplayed, allowed
Eaves to score.
A BJ. McNeal single and
walk by McKeown loaded the
bases again. Yowell drew a
walk to force a run home,
while McNeal scored the last
run of the inning on a wild
pitch.
Union (4-3) scored two runs
in the fourth. Dustin Hersey hit
a lead-off single, while Dalton
Cochran reached base on a
dropped third strike. Austin
Harden hit a single to bring
both runners home.
Bradford's McNeal drew his
second walk of the night to
lead off the top of the fifth. He
,eventually scored on a balk-to-
cap the scoring.
McNeal finished the game 2-
for-2, while Bradley was 2-for-


4. Norman was 1-for-2, while
Chipoletti, Eaves and Manning
were each I-for-4.
The Tigers managed just

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Chase Julius and Ryan

to help the Keystone Heights
baseball team defeat Bradford
6-2 on Feb. 25 in Starke.
It was the first game that
counted toward the District 4-
3A standings for either team.
The Indians (4-1) left nine
runners on base-seven in
scoring position-through the
first five innings, and trailed
Bradford 1-0. Julius, though,
changed that with a double in
the top of the sixth that
allowed Colton Griffis and

another. Latner hit a triple with
two outs to push another two
across and put Keystone up 6-

he saw. BJ. McNeal singled
with one out to drive in a run,
but Keystone ended the game
by turning a double play on a
ground ball hit by Brandon
Thomas.
Latner and Lott went 3-for-5
and 3-for-4, respectively,
while Julius was 2-for-5.
Stadnicki (2-0) struck out 10
and gave up just two walks in
earning the win.
The Tornadoes got one hit
each from Eaves, McNeal,
Norman, Thomas, Yowell and
Dylan Manning. Thomas hit a
double in the third with one
out, stole second and scored on
Ryan McKeown's ground ball
to second.
