Day of Prayer
observed May 5
The National Day of Prayer will be,
observed at the Bradford County Court-
house on Thursday, May 5, at noon.
Families are encouraged to attend and
give thanks for the bountiful blessings
bestowed upon our country, and to ask
'God to intercede on behalf of our nation
and its leaders at this challenging time.
The 2011 National Day of Prayer
has special significance due to a recent
court ruling by a panel of the U.S. Court
of Appeals, which affirmed the con-
stitutionality of the law requiring the
president to proclaim a National Day of
Prayer each year.
Millions will answer the call to prayer
on May 5 and organized events will
be held in thousands of public venues
where citizens will unite in prayer for
America and its leadership. This year's
theme, "A Mighty Fortress is Our God,"
is based on Psalm 91:2, which states, "I
will say of the Lord, He is my refuge
and my fortress, my God, in whom I
trust."
There will be copies of the president's
proclamation for those who attend the
courthouse event. Homemadejce cream
will be served. Bring lawn chairs and a
fan as it is always hot. Also, bring with
you names of military service persons
so they may be offered up in prayer.

Lengthy Starke audit raises familiar financial concerns


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The financial warnings asso-
ciated with the city of Starke's
annual audit are familiar but be-
coming more urgent.
At one point, Eddie Douglas of
DDF CPA Group exclaimed that
the city commission had to do
something to change things. Re-
ferring td high personnel costs, in
particular, he said the city could
not sustain things the way it is
doing business.
"You can't fund a 79 percent
.benefit package," he said.
Auditor Lora Douglas said
DDF had calculated what the city
is paying in retirement, insur-
ance, Social Security, Medicare
and Workers' Compensation,
and for every dollar in salary to
:general employees, the city1is
kicking in another 79 cents in ad-
.ditional payroll costs. Off hand,
they figured the state average
:was probably around 30 cents.
A good portion of that 79 per-
cent benefit rate is city's contri-
:butions to its retirement system.
'The city paid nearly $850,000
into the system in 2010, and such
:a high rate is a problem for the
:city, said Lora Douglas. The city
lhas gone from paying around 41
.cents for every dollar spent on
a general employee's salary to
,nearly 55 cents on the dollar for
retirement. The amount is around
:'18 cents for police employees
;'and 39 cents for firefighters.
Improvements in the stock
n4arket have- been good for the
systemm since the city is getting a
better return on its investments.
jHow that will. impact what the
7ity will pay into they system
i the months to come won't be
'known until- the actuarial report
is given later this month, how-
ever.
Different scenarios from rais-
ing the retirement age to requir-
ing employee contributions have
been proposed to reduce the
city"s contribution, but even tak-
en all together, it has been said
The proposed reductions would
-have a minimal impact.
Douglas said of the 18 condi-
ions auditors were testing the
city on this year,, nine showed
-unfavorable results. These condi-
tions included things like declin-.
:mg revenue and -overextended
Vdebt service that could eventu-
ally impact city service levels,



KH man involved
in 5-car fatality
crash in Alachua
A Keystone Heights man was
driving an unoccupied school
bus that was involved in a five-
c-car crash in Alachua County on
April 29.
:-:,According to the report by
I-lorida Highway Patrol Troop-
-e" Richard Crawford, a 2008
-Bluebird school bus driven by
Marc Perreault, 32, of Keystone
Heights was traveling westbound
on S.R. 121 near Southwest 82nd
Place.
Perreault was making a left-
hand turn and three'other vehi-
d cles were stopped behind him.
The report said George A. Hill-
man Jr., 78, of Morristown was
driving a 1984 Oldsmobile sedan
eastbound on S.R. 121. The Olds-
.mobile struck the right rear of the'
school bus as.it turned. The sedan
continued to travel past the bus,
sideswiped the two cars stopped
behind the bus and then crashed
head-on into the third 'stopped
"vehicle, a tractor-trailer.
Hillman sustained fatal injuries
in the crash and was pronounced
dead at the scene by Alachua
County Fire-Rescue. None of the
other drivers was injured.
Charges are still pending in-
vestiga'tion.
The vehicle stopped immedi-
ately behind the bus was a 2000
BMW 3251, driven by Timothy
Sink of Gainesville. It sustained
an estimated $2,000 in damages
when it was sideswiped by the
Oldsmobile.
The next vehicle in line was
a 2000 Lincoln Towncar driven
. by Albin Stolrik of Dunnellon.
it sustained an*estimated $500 in


damages when it was sideswiped
by the Oldsmobile.
The final vehicle was a trac-
tor-trailer driven by Paul Arthur
Smith, 61, of Dunnellon.
The Oldsmobile sustained an
estimated $7,000 in damages and
the school bus sustained an esti-
mated $2,000 in damages.


its ability to carry out capital im-
provements, etc.
The first three findings were re-
peated from last,year's audit, the
first being the amount of money
the city is spending on recreation
programs that benefit primarily
county residents. Douglas said
the commission might even want
to seek an opinion on the legality
of those expenditures.
Also, the city is still not keep-
ing a complete physical invento-
ry of its property. Third, the audit
notes declining utility revenue
even as personnel costs like insur-
ance and retirement continue to
rise. This threatens city reserves,
which are already inadequate to
fund expensive capital improve-
ments for the utility system. This
has, in turn, increased the city's
indebtedness. Declining revenue
also threatens 'the city's ability to
pay back its debt'.
This audit takes a closer look
at the city's debt, which totaled
nearly $12.7 million on Sept. 30,
2010. Most of it represents capi-
tal improvements made to elec-
tric and sewer infrastructure. The
city will pay off its fire trucks
this year. The street paving debt
will be settled in 2013. The util
ity debt, part of which the city is
receiving help from the state to
pay for, is payable through 2031.
Finally, the city has two revenue
bonds that won't be retired until
2019.
Auditors also commented on
inconsistencies in the city's poli-
cies and how it is currently hir-
ing part-time employees as OPS
employees and paying holiday
time to police officers. The city
has failed as well to draft a pol-
icy for its rate stabilization fund,
theoretically used to smooth util-
ity customers' bills from month
to month.
She said auditors went over
controls with a fine-tooth comb,
and the strongest controls in-
volve the handling cash in the
city clerk's office. When money
goes through the city's cashiers,
there are systems to catch dis-
crepancies, and they have been
in place for a long time.
However, auditors found nu-
merous-examples of other,types
of transactions, that,,were never
properly recorded:
A 5 percent increase in water
and sewer rates effective October
2009 was not reflected in cus-
tomers' bills until January 2010,


resulting in lost revenue.
Two significant garbage cus-
tomers were not billed for two
months, which went without de-
tection for an entire year, result-
ihg in a loss of $11,000.
The customer deposit subsid-
iary did not reconcile to the gen-
eral ledger for the entire year, and
no attempt was made to discover
what caused the difference.
Customers being billed quar-
terly for security lights were only
being charged for one month of
service instead of three.
$375,000 from the state to
help repay sewer rehabilitation
loans was not recorded.
Proceeds from the sale of the
fire station were used to purchase
a certificate of deposit, but the
investment and proceeds from
the sale were never recorded.'
More than $67,000 from the
state, received through the coun-
ty, was used ,to purchase police
cars, but neither the revenue nor
the expenditures were ever re-
corded. /
An exchange of $1,400 worth
of sod to/ cover an outstanding
bill was/hever recorded
A gain resulting from an ex-
change of buses with the school
system was not recorded.
.* Labor and equipment charg-
es/for in-house capital improve-
ments were not recorded because
of a software application error.
Seven laptops purchased for
the police department for near-
ly $5,400 were paid for twice.
When this was discovered, a re-
fund was requested, but has not
yet been received.
Douglas also pointed out a
problem with payroll manage-
ment. Employees are being paid
by one department while work-
ing in another. Though the city
griped about the additional ef-
fort, Douglas said it was nec-
essary to keep track of exactly
where employees are working
.'and pay them out of the budgets
for those departments in order to
have a real idea of what it costs
to run a department and to avoid
a material misstatement in the
city's financial records. The time
sheets don't have to be exact, she
said, but five minutes at the end
of the day allocating hours to the
correct department would help
the city better plan budgets and
set service rates.
Some of the discrepancies had
involved recreation- employees

being paid out of other budgets.
Recreation was responsible for
other material weaknesses in the
audit again this year, including:
Employees who are not
bonded are handling cash.
Employees were collecting
program fees instead of directing
customers to the cashier's win-
dow. Customers were not given
receipts for their payments.
Purchases for recreation were
made on a Sam's credit card not
authorized by the commission.
Sales tax was paid on the pur-
chases even though the city is tax
exempt. Purchases made by em-
ployees on the city's behalf were
refunded, including the cost of
sales tax.
$2,500 in concession stand
purchases was approved, but a
$2,500 gift card was purchased
instead. The card was used sev-
eral times to make purchases for
the concession stand, but had it
been lost, the city would have
forfeited any remaining value on
the card.
Summer camp participants
were not always charged the cor-
rect amount. .
Cash was collected from
summer camp participants for
field trips and paid directly to
vendors instead of being turned
over to the clerk's office. No re-
cords were kept of cash received
or paid to vendors to document
actual costs:
A district tournament com-
missioner was reimbursed travel
costs out of concession stand re-
ceipts. This is not in accordance
with the city's purchasing poli-
cies, and a travel expense reim-
bursement form was not com-
pleted.
There was no evidence that
any recreation 'department pur-
chases were approved by the op-
erations manager as required by
ordinance.
Concession stand inventory
procedures were inadequate to
support sales of concession stand
items. Beginning and ending in-
ventories and cash register tapes
were not provided to the clerk's


BLACK / MALE


office along with the cash.
The audit also found instances
of noncompliance with financial
laws. For example, the police
department spent funds meant
for education on the purchase of
laptop computers and software,
justifying the purchase by saying
the training wouldn't have been
possible without the materials
purchased.
Additionally, customers are
not being charged penalties for
late purchases of occupational
licenses, and collection is not be-
ing enforced.
The audit also found that cer-
tain contributions toward non-
profits are not adequately sup-
ported by evidence that those
contributions serve a public pur-
pose. Additionally, gas and prop-
erty tax revenue that is restricted
for transportation costs was used
to help pay for employees work-
ing in recreation.
The city received nearly
$94,000 from Advanced En-
vironmental Technologies, the
contractor paid by the state to co-
ordinate cleanup of the old pow-
er plant property. This appears
to be in violation of state statute,
which prevents site owners from
receiving direct or indirect remu-
neration from rehabilitation con-

Thank you for helping us grow


Bradford Middle School News
By Bailey Creighton and Dana Carney

"Don't stop believing, hold on to that feeling!" Well. maybe we can't sing too well, but
there are a w hole lot of other people who can, and they tried out for the BMS Talent Show
this week on Monday and Tuesday. Congratulations to all who made it and we expect to be
seeing you on the 17th at the BHS auditorium for the real live show! Speaking of singing
and talents, the BMS chorus will be singing on May 9 when the Bradford County School
Board meeting is held at BMS. Along with the chorus, they will be giving out science fair
awards, and continuing with the typical meeting, with just a twist of being at BMS. Be sure
not to miss it!
In other news, BMS is really digging into the books this month! Next week, BMS will be
holding its very own book fair, May 9 through 13. Be sure to get some really good books to
read on the way to the beach this summer, or just to read inside in the nice air conditioning.
Either way, be sure to visit! Also, the National Junior Honor Society will be holding a book
drive on May 23 through June 4. The community drop off will be on June 4, and the school-
wide drop offs will be from May 23 to June 3. All the books will go to some elementary
schools for the kids. Let's support literacy! Woohoo!
PBS is still going on at BMS with more activities than ever. Teachers are still handing out
all that Canes Cash you can spend at the store (which is open every Thursday and Friday),
but also, some extra stuff has been going on, too. For example, just this past week sixth-
grader Marcus Patray won .he jelly bean estimation game and received an iPod Shuffle (not
to mention all of those jelly beans)!
In the extracurricular department, FBLA took 18 students to the state conference in
Orlando on the April 25-28. These students competed in public speaking, computer skills,
and more. Congratulations to Bailey Creighton for placing fifth in the state for editing.
Moving on to sports at BMS, the softball team had an undefeated season and won for the
third time in a row at the.SMAC Championship. This is has never been done in the SMAC
conference! Be certain to congratulate them on this awesome record-breaking season.
Enjoy your week, students, and keep counting down to summer. We'll have more next
issue.


KIEV @.


Only one more month of
%school then it's finally summer
:time! Progress reports go home
:in two weeks.
Friday, April 29, was Senior
:SkipDay. Most of the seniors
!enjoyed their relaxing day at the
'beach or the lake with friends.
I'm sure the underclassmen were
definitely jealous having to be
stuck in classrooms all day, but
Their time will come, as long as
they stay in school and work
hard!
.. Bradford High's Band per-
ormed in Tallahassee on April
.8, receiving straight "excel-
ltents" from three judges on the
pieces they performed, which is
great! State has a highly competi-
tive grading system and the band
went and performed very well.
,-Gradbash is this Friday, May
6, for seniors! They will be leav-
ing during school to go to Uni-
yersal Studios for a night full of
f;un, excitement and a memorable
experience.
SMay 26, is the deadline for
signing up for dual enrollment

classes at Santa Fe College for
the fall. If dual enrollment stu-
dents are taking summer classes,
they need to be signed up by the
end of this week. If there are any
questions, Mrs. Dampier, BHS'
guidance counselor, can help.
Spring Football practices have
begun! Make sure if you want
to be on the team for next year,
you're out at practice and getting
prepared for the season. It is sure
to be an awesome one come fall.
This week will be AP testing..
On May 4, the AP calculus test
will take place, and on May 5,
it's the AP literature test. Any
student taking one of these tests
.should be at the school around
7:45 a.m. at least so there is time
to settle and relax.
Quote for the week: "We
should never shy away from the
challenges that face us out of fear
of failure or an unwillingness to
battle the odds. We should con-
front our problems head on and
make no excuses." -Kyle May-

Bring Special
Olympics back
to Bradford
A group is looking for assis-
tance in bringing Special Olym-
pics back to Bradford County.
An informational meeting will
be held June 7 at 6 p.m. in the
Bradford County High School
auditorium.
Special Olympics provides
athletes with intellectual disabili-
ties'an opportunity to experience
the' excitement, joy and personal
fulfillment associated with sports
training and competition. Volun-
teering with Special Olympics
creates change that carries into
the world. Whether you can vol-
unteer for just a few hours on a
single day as a scorekeeper, sev-
eral hours a week or year-round,
as a special events coordinator,
there are volunteer opportunjtito
for you.
Around the world, there is a
growing hunger for civic engage-
ment and belonging. It's about
transforming lives, including
your own. It's about a spirit of


giving and teamwork. It's about
making your community and
neighborhood a more welcom-
ing and accepting place. It's also
about creating lifelong friend-
ships and a new way of thinking
about others. Those are rewards
of immeasurable value.
Special Olympics would not
exist today without the time,
energy, commitment and enthu-
siasm of people just like you,
individuals who choose to take
a little time from busy schedules
to make the world a better place.
If you would like to know more,
contact Hope Davis or Kim Paige
at 904-966-6799, or e-mail da-
vis_h03@firn.edu or paige_kk@
firn.edu.


Volunteers are needed at Wind-
sor Manor Nursing Home, 602
E. Laura St. in Starke. Applica-
tions are available at Windsor
Manor, or call the activity direc-
tor at 904-964-3383, for more
information.


Lodge members
renovating
historic building
The members of Pine Hill
Lodge in Brooker agreed in
March to renovate their Charlotte
Avenue building by first painting
the metal roof. The lodge was
chartered in 1'881, and the build-
ing served as the town's commu-,
nity center for many years.
Since the wood-frame build-
ing is two stories high, access to
the roof by ladder was not a rea-
sonable or safe option. Several
owners of bucket trucks were
asked for assistance. Fortunately,
Dwight Mast of North Florida
Equipment Rentals in Lake But-
ler came through, allowing the
lodge to use a special lift with a
two-man bucket.
Mast moved the equipment to
Brooker and instructed David
Calihou how to operate it safe-
ty. Calihou is a new Freemason
from the Lake Butler lodge who
volunteered with others to pre-
pare and paint the. lodge roof.
On Monday, April 25, Calihou


arrived after his eight-hour work-
day to spray the metal roof with
a solution that neutralized the
rust. The next afternoon, the re-
mainder of the roof was sprayed
and the solution washed off so it
could dry overnight. Wednesday
afternoon, the painting began,
and half of the roof was painted
before dark. On Friday morning,
Jeff Davis and Ted Barber com-
pleted the painting project.
Other members of Pine Hill
Lodge who assisted in this proj-
ect included Gene Bertine, Ros-
coe Cruce, Bruce Kirby, Otis
Tetstone and Brian Fedor. Other
lodge members provided finan-
cial assistance.
Barber said the entire member-
ship of Pine Hill Lodge town of
Brooker are indebted to Mast for
literally getting the project off
the ground by allowing the lodge
roof to be painted safely with his
equipment.
Lodge members also plan to
paint the exterior walls and level
the building, which has devel-
oped a slight dip in the west end.


AUDIT
Continued from page 3A

ance as of September 2010, but
most of the $1.27 million has
been reserved or designated for
specific purposes, leaving just
$356,000, which the city has al-
ready been dipping into this year
to cover costs.
'Neither the general fund nor
recreation generated as much rev-
enue as they spent, which means
transfers from utilities were re-
quired in order, to cover costs.
Around $613,000 was transferred
from utilities to the general fund,
which is less than the $914,000
budgeted, signifying- that utility
revenue was down as well. Most
of the money transferred in to
the general fund was transferred
baclkout to recreation.
Overall, the general fund lost
nearly $112,000 in 2010, not be-
cause the budget was overspent
but because of the decline in rev-
enue.
-Some corrections to the bal-
ance sheets had 'to be made be-'
cause of oversights previously
mentioned. For example, when
the old fire station was sold in
2009 for $60,000, that money
was never recorded. The pro-
ceeds went directly from the clos-
ing to the bank where a CD was
bought, Douglas said. Because
the money didn't go through the
city's checking account, it was
never picked up. It has since
been added back to the general
fund balance sheet.
The Transportation Trust Fund
took in more than was spent,
bringing its fund balance up to
nearly $368,000. Those funds
must be spent on streets. Recre-
ation ended up with a $48,000


fund balance following its trans-.
fers.
The enterprise fund, or utility
fund, has more than $2.7 million
in unrestricted reserve funds.
Last year, utilities made nearly
$12.8 million, with electric sales
being up and sales from water,
sewer and gas being down. Over-
all revenue was down from 2009,
and had it not been for a grant to
help pay for the completed sewer
rehabilitation project, utilities
would have shown a loss for the
year.
In the end, the city made
around $283,000 that it was able
to add to the reserves.

Audit vs. audit
Douglas spoke briefly about
a petition circulating calling for
a state audit of the city. A four-
year comprehensive audit by the
auditor general could be quite
expensive, she said, and contrary

to what the group collecting sig-
natures originally said, the city
could get stuck with the bill.
Douglas said DDF doesn't
think the city needs an audit by
the auditor general because it is
already audited.
"Possibly the audit they would

do would be a different type of
audit than we do. We do a fi-
nancial audit," she said. For ex-
ample, it could be an operational
audit, she said.
DDF looks at the city's finan-
cial statements to make sure the
numbers there are supported by


documentation detailing how
money is received and spent.
Based on public scrutiny and me-
dia attention, Douglas said DDF
lowered its risk this year by look-
ing at more items to make sure
auditors aren't missing some-
thing.


Audits don't attempt to exam-
ine every transaction, she said,
but perform tests of transactions
to verify there are no material
misstatements in the city's finan-
cial statements.

Relying on faith to clear hurdles, attain motherhood


*BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
She had wanted a baby for a
very long time. She had hoped
and prayed and dreamed of
being a mother ever since she
%was a child who still needed a
mother herself.
She was 29 years old and
felt that time was running out.
She decided that adoption was
her best option. There was just
one problem-she wasn't
married, and in 1966 it was
unheard of for a single woman
to adopt a child that was not
related to her in some way.
Lavonia "Bobbie" Hodges
Kinner, originally of Brooker,
was living in Jacksonville and
working for an attorney as a
legal secretary in 1966. She
had watched the attorney help
other people adopt children
and continued to hope that she
would eventually experience
the joy she saw on their faces.
"It was hard to know that I
couldn't have children. I
prayed so hard for (adoption)
,and hoped for it so much," she
said.
Then one day the attorney
got a call from a Navy wife.
While her husband was
deployed, the wife had made
an unfortunate mistake and
was now more than six months
pregnant. The couple had two
other children and the husband
felt he couldn't raise the child
of another man. If he and his'
wife were to stay together, the
new" baby had to be given up
for adoption. The wife wanted
the attorney to handle it.
Kinner said she was thrilled
to hear the woman's story.
Here was the baby she had
wanted so much for so long. "I

felt the Lord had answered my
prayers," she said. Kinner
talked to the attorney about it,
but he wasn't encouraging.
"He said it wouldn't work. I
was single," she said. "But he
sent me to meet the mother
anyway."
She met the mother, not as a
potential adoptive parent, but
as the attorney's secretary. She
talked to her, took her to
doctor's appointments and
even took her to the hospital
when it was time for the
delivery.


"Mother's Day 201"
Happy Mother's Day to all of our
mothers in all of our communities.
Mothers, all mothers, are so special.
Where would America be without our
"Mothers"?
My mother was the backbone of our
family. My father was a great man -
but really and truly it was our mother
who was the "glue" that held our
family together. How can we really
express in words what mothers mean
to our community.
My mother encouraged me all her
days here on earth, even when I
disappointed her. I was still her son.
You know it's so easy to be critical,
but to each precious mother I say,
"God bless you and your family". For
those who are missing their mothers,
we'll pray together.
My mother died July 28, 1997 -
and how I miss her. God gave me my
mother and truly one of the greatest
blessings of my life..
So many of you have been mothers
to your family and mentors to others.
There are many of you like that in my
life. I pray that God will continue to
guide and bless all of our mothers in
our community.
Happy Mother's Day from all of us
at Western Steer We honor you
today. Have a great day!

Lavonia "Bob-

Kinner, a Brad-
ford High
School gradu-
ate, is believed
to have been
the first single
woman in Flor-
ida to adopt a
child that
wasn't a rela-
tive.


During that time, the
attorney filed papers for
Kinner to adopt the child, but
the Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services fought
the action because Kinner was
single. They said the. child
would need a father as well as
a mother.
The woman was definitely
giving the-child up when it was
born and the attorney had
.arranged for Kinner to be the
' child's foster parent until
adoption proceedings were
finalized. "He told me not to

get my hopes up. He said I'd
probably have the baby for
several months and then have
to give it up again. He warned
me. Everyone warned me," she
said.
Her family and friends tried
hard to talk her out of it.
"People said I was crazy,"
Kinner said. "They told me
there was no way the judge
was going to let me have that
baby. They said I would just
get my heart broken."
Kinner didn't listen. She just
kept hoping and praying, and
spent a lot of time and effort
on fixing up a nursery in her
home.
Everyone thought the
woman was going to have a
girl, so Kinner was in a store
with a buggy full of girl's
clothing when she got the
message that the baby had.
been born-a boy baby. She
left the clothing and rushed to
the hospital.
The mother still did not
know. that Kinner was hoping
to adopt 'the child, and even
though Kinner had been
approved as a foster parent for
him, she was not legally
allowed to hold the baby at all
until the baby had left the
hospital grounds.
The moment she first took.
him into her arms, she said she
knew- this was the answer to
her prayers. "I was so happyy"
she said. "The Lord had finally
answered my prayers." She
named the child Barry,

Gnann was

There was still a court battle
to go through, however. Just
before the court date, Barry got
sick with what turned out to be
pneumonia. He went back to
the hospital for a short stay and
Kinner's friends told her she
had no hope of getting the
adoption approved.
"They told me, 'There's no
way that judge is going to let
you have that baby now that
you let him get sick,'" Kinner
said.
They were wrong. Both

Wells earns Florida Blue Key honor


BY BUSTER RAHN
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor
Starke resident Orian
Wells-CPA and former
automobile dealer-was
inducted into the Florida Blue
Key Honorary Society-an
exclusive group associated
with the University of
Florida-along with 16 other
initiates at the Florida Blue
Key Spring 2011 Initiation
Ceremony, held in the J.
Wayne Reitz Union grand
ballroom.
Each candidate had to be
recommended by a current
member in good standing. The
recommendation went to the
tapping committee for
investigation and approval. An
affirmative recommendatiorL
had to be made by the
committee for the application
to go forward.
Wells was recommended by
Perry McGriff, a native
Floridian born in Arcadia,
1960 graduate of UF, talented
athlete, former mayor of
Gainesville, councilman, state
representative and candidate
for the Florida Senate. McGriff
is an agent for State Farm.
Admission requirements
have become more exclusive
over the years, but Florida
Blue key, remains composed of
,the most motivated and
talented student leaders, the
university has to offer.
t Wells has joined one of the
-most prestigious groups in
Florida, limited to men and
women of outstanding
character who are leaders in
their respective communities,
generally well-to-do and who
always display good moral
character. The membership list
- reads like the who's who of
America. While Ilue Key
chapters are organized in many
of the other states, Florida
Blue Key is exclusive and has
.:no connective interest in other
:Blue Key chapters.
Florida Blue Key had its
inception in the all-male
University of Florida in 1923
when UF President Albert
Murphree organized a campus
visitation day for students'
fathers. The project was

testify about the
appropriateness--or in-
approp.-iateness-of a single
woman adopting a child, but in
the end it was Kinner's
dedication to the child and
impressive personality that
swayed the judge.
"She convinced me, as a
circuit judge, that she could
play the role of both mother
and father," Jbdge Tyrie Boyer
said in a newspaper article
written several years ago. "It
was obvious that she genuinely
wanted the child,"that she was
willing to make the sacrifices
it took to play the dual role and
that, in this particular case, it
would be in 'the child's best
interests."
The ruling was made, and
'Kinner became "mom" to her
son Barry on Jan. 19, 1967. As
far as anyone knows, she was
"the first single woman in
Florida to adopt a child who
was not related to her.
Kinner set about raising her
son with as much enthusiasm
as she had exhibited in 'trying
to get him in the first place.
When Barry was 3, Kinner
decided he needed a sibling.
She was married now to
Jimmy Gnann, whom she had

'Bradford High School. She set
about adopting a second child,
Keith, in December of 1970.
This one was not to be,
however. Keith had been
brain-damaged upon birth and
died a short time after the
adoption. Kinner went in
search of the teenage birth
mother who had been forced
by her parents to give the child
up. She found the girl, who

leaders under the direction of
Dr. B.C. Riley.
The group planned a father-
son day around a football
game and enjoyed such
success that the day became an
annual event, evolving into the
current'homecoming and Gator
Growl events. The Blue Key,
concept spread rapidly across
the nation, with Blue Key
organizations springing up at
many universities, but Florida
elected to become
independent, taking the name
"Florida Blue Key."
"Wells" is an English name,
indicating that the family
emigrated from England to the
colonies in the distant past. In
1880, Nimrod Wells, Orian's
grandfather, moved his family
from .Virginia to a north
Florida village-Gainesville-
that has gained some notoriety
as a university town in recent
years. Grandpa Wells set an
example for civic work by
gaining a position on the city
council. He was the mayor of
Gainesville when moving the
university from Lake City was
being considered, and was
instrumental in offering free
water to the university. The
free water was discontinued
approximately 20 years ago in
a mutually agreeable consent
decree.
Orian's father, Orian Wells
Sr., graduated from
Gainesville High School in


was still ill from complications
from the birth.
"She had wanted the baby so
badly, but she couldn't keep
'him," Kinner said. "I told her
who I was and why I was there
She cried, and I cried, and we
cried and cried together. I told
her, 'We're in this together,
you and I. We both wanted
him so badly.'"
The two women planned-
and endured-the child's
funeral together. It was
devastating for both of them.
However, nine months later,
almost to the day, there was
another child who needed a
mother, and Kinner was up for
the job. Stacie was adopted in
September of 1971. Kinner
and her husband then had a
daughter and a son, since
Gnann had adopted Barry a
short time after they married.
The two later divorced, but
remained friends and Gnann
continued to play the role of
father to the two children.
Both children. are grown
now and have children of their
own. Kinner met and married
Dan Kinner and moved to
Georgia. Barry Gnann has two
daughters and is living in
South Florida. Stacie Gnann
Current is married with three
daughters and is living in
Valdosta, Ga.
The Kinners aren't done
with caring for children,
however. In addition to tli,.
time they spend with their
grandchildren, the couple also
tutors Spanish-speaking
children in English for several
hours each week. "Kids...
they're what we love. They're
what we love," said Kinner.
Kinner is now also hoping t6
share her story with a wider
audience. She would like
someone to turn the story into
a book or a movie. She can be
contacted at 912-422-4019.


1916 and went on to play
football for UF. He was called
to the Colors in 1916 and
became a pilot in World War I.
After the war, he returned to
Gainesville, where he farmed
and ran cattle in the 13"' Street
area. The young family had
five children-three boys and
two girls-all of which were
well-educated and lived
successful lives. The three
sons served in the military-all
Air Force pilots. One son,
Richard, age 24, was, killed in
the South Pacific when his
plane was lost. Brother Rod
made a career in the military
service, earning his wings and
becoming a B-52 pilot. He
retired as a major.
Orian Wells Jr.'s two sisters,
Marjorie and Cora Lea, both of
whom' graduated from UF,
went on to successful careers.
The younger sister, Cora Lea,
is an architect, and designed a
number of buildings in St.
Augustine, prior to moving to
.California.
In the years since Wells was
born in 1928, there have been
many changes on 13"' Street in
Gainesville. The street was
paved and became a north-
south artery through the town.

Another quirk about
Gainesville: the now-defunct
Atlantic Coast Line ran down
the middle of Main Street, with
the depot approximately one
block north of University
Avenue. The rails were taken-
up and re-routed at the end of
World War II. The Sears store
was located on the courthouse
square adjacent to Belk's. Both
stores moved to the newly
built Oaks Mall on the west
side of town after WWII.
The Devil's Millhopper
sinkhole was outside the city
limits prior to businesses and
population moving to the west
side. A look at a map tells the
story of the western migration:
That's where the people are.
Wells enlisted in the Army
almost immediately out of high
school, choosing paratrooper
training school. When his
enlistment was up, he returned
to Gainesville, unsure of his
future, but re-upped in the Air
Force in 1951 and was
assigned to flight school.
While in flight school-two
weeks from graduation-the
Air Force decided it had a
surplus of pilots and
transferred pilot trainees to
other duties. Wells missed
being commissioned a second
lieutenant. He returned home.
In 1956, Wells entered the
University of Florida without a
commitment to any field, but
in taking two accounting
courses, he found his calling.
He majored in accounting,
with a minor in economics. He,
graduated in 1960 and sat for
his CPA exam.

student, and

drive at

Raceway as
part of the

,.. Racing League.








BMS student, family aim for

first in junior drag racing


BY CLIFF SMELLED
Regional News/Sports Editor
"Competition" and "speed"
are two adjectives that can be
used to describe drag racing,
but for Bradford Middle
School ~ sixth-grader Quest
Tauro, you can also throw in
"family ."
Quest is in the midst of his
third year of racing at
Gainesville Raceway as part of
the National Hot Rod
Association Jr. Drag Racing
League. He is seeking to claim
his division's championship
this year after missing out last
year by only one point.
The trips to Gainesville
Raceway are family affairs.
There are cookouts, and each
member has a task or tasks to
perform. Grandfather Vic
Tauro once raced himself,
while cousin Akai Cunard, a


student at Hampton
Elementary School, is a racer
also.
It all makes for an enjoyable
time.
"It's really, really fun out
there," Quest said.
It would seem only fitting
that racing has become a
family affair. Quest-whose
parents are Amber and Tim-
said the drag racers he likes to
follow are the NHRA's John
Force and Ashley Force, who
is one of three daughters of
John's involved in racing.
"They have their own team
with a few drivers on it,"
Quest said. "That's how I want
my team to be--my cousin and
I on a teamr and all of our
family there. I want my crew
chief to be my papa."
"Papa" is Vic Tauro, who
loves the fact his grandson is a


fan of John Force.
"That's my hero, and now
. my grandkid's hero," Vic said.
Like Quest, Vic Tauro got
involved in racing as a
youngster.
"As a matter of fact, I used
to sneak in in the back of a car
just to get into the race track,"
he said. "It started from there.
It's been in my blood ever
since."
Vic said he began racing at
the age of 16. He eventually
went to work transporting a car
to and from races for a pro-
-stock team-something he did
for seven years.
His previous experience in
the sport puts Vic at the top of
the family heirarchy at the
track.

What's happening at the Capitol


as your State Representative, and
that is helping solve constituent
issues. For several days now,
Marianne Marshall of our office
has been working with several
community members to help a
West Nassau student receive a
kidney transplant at Mayo Clinic.
You may have read about this


remarkable 18-year-old senior
in the local newspaper. The
outpouring from our community
has truly been incredible with
West Nassau raising $36,000 to
assist the family. Pastor Hughart
(who I am looking forward to
meeting) has been wonderfully
helpful and a blessing to all


involved. We expect to get 'a
final answer from Mayo next
week regarding this fine young
man getting the transplant he so
desperately needs.
It is an honor to serve you in
the Florida House. ,
Janet Adkins
Florida Representative


Representative Janet Adkins
shares her thoughts and activities
during the eighth week of the
Legislative session.

The word that best describes week eight was
"exhausting." The week began with the drive to
Tallahassee at 5:15 a.m. Tuesday morning. The
Redistricting Committee began at 9 a.m., where
members discussed opportunities for citizen
input to the redistricting process and received
a presentation on the recent amendments to the
Florida Constitution.
The redistricting committees will hold
approximately 30 public hearings to solicit
input from Floridians about how they wish to be
represented. The Florida Channel intends to web-
cast most of the meetings as their schedule permits.
These meetings will include both House and Senate
members and are expected to be held in the months
of July through September.
At www.floridaredistricting.org, you can sign
up for e-mail updates, review legal references and
recent presentations and access MyDistrictBuilder.
MyDistrictBuilder is an online district-building
application that allows the public and legislators to
draft possible redistricting plans. This application
is currently available, although it does not yet have
full functionality. By July, anyone should be able
to draw house, senate or congressional districts
through this web-based application.
Last November, Florida voters approved
Amendments five and six relating to redistricting.
These amendments create two tiers of standards.
When in conflict, the first tier standards supplant
second tier standards. Within each tier, standards
are assigned no order of priority.
The first-tier standards include: No plan shall
be drawn with the intent to favor or disfavor an
incumbent and no plan shall be drawn with the
intent to favor or disfavor a political party. Tier-
one standards also specify that districts shall not
be drawn with the intent or result of denying
or abridging the equal opportunity of racial or
language minorities to participate in the political
process. It also specifies that districts shall not be
drawn to diminish the ability of racial or language
minorities to elect representatives of their choice.
The- final tier-one standard addresses contiguity.
This is often defined as a district in which one may
travel to every part without having to cross into
another district.
Tier-two standards specify that the districts shall
'be as nearly equal in population as practicable;
be compact; and where feasible, utilize existing
political and geographical boundaries. Again, these
standards apply only'to the extent that they do not
conflict with tier-one requirements.
Amendments five and six neither mandate nor
address proportionate representation: roughequality
of Republicans and Democrats in a given district.
They also do not require or give consideration
to how a district will likely "perform" in a non-
minority area.
Around 9 a.m., we received word that the House
and Senate had reached agreement on budget
allocations. This was important because budget
conference between the House and Senate could not
begin to resolve budget differences until agreement
had been reached. Monday afternoon, the speaker
announced budget conferees and conferences began
that evening. I was pleased that Speaker Cannon
appointed me to the PreK-12 Budget Conference.
From 11 a.m. to nearly 9 p.m., the House
considered 24 bills. We covered a wide range
of.topics including privacy of firearm owners
(HB155), regulation of firearms and ammunition
(HB45), and drug. screening of potential and
existing beneficiaries of temporary assistance for
needy families funding (HB353).


Between Tuesday and Wednesday, we spent
considerable time debating several pro-life bills
including Parental Notification of Abortions
(HB 1247), Health Insurance (HB97), Choose Life
License Plates (HB501),Abortion-Public Funding-
Construction of Right (HJR1179), Abortions
(HB1397) and Abortions (HB1127). Needless to
say, the debate was full of emotion on both sides.
Each bill passed on a bipartisan vote.
I, was happy to have members from Blackrock
Baptist Church in Yulee visit the Capitol on
Wednesday to pray for our state. It has been
wonderful to have members from the community
involved in their state government and it is a source
of strength for me personally to know that so many
people are praying for our state.
Thursday was another long day on the House
floor with about eight hours of questions and
debates on 71 bills. Considerable time was spent
debating 10 education bills, including HB1255
Education Accountability, which I sponsored. One
bill that passed the House and is now in Senate
messages is HB797. The bill allows a student
attending a private middle school or high school
to participate in interscholastic or intrascholastic
sports at a public school that is zoned for the
physical address at which the student resides if the
private school'does not offer an athletic program
and is not a member of the Florida High School
Athletic Association (FHSAA). The bill limits
participation in the athletic program to students
from non-FHSAA member private schools that
have 125 or fewer students in any given year. On
Friday the Senate passed this bill with 39 yeas and
0 nays. I have had several families approach me
about this issue and I am happy to report that, upon
the Senate's approval, it will be resolved.
After adjourning from the House floor, it was
time to conference with the Senate on the PreK- 12
budget. The Senate presented the House their first
offer at about 8:30 p.m. House conferees discussed
budget line items, proviso .language and budget
conforming bills and presented the Senate our
counter-offer 12 hours later.
During session, I receive thousands of e-mails. I
would estimate that several hundred of these e-mails
were about cuts to library funding. The proposed
Senate budget completely eliminated funding for
State Aid to Libraries'while the proposed House
budget allocated $17.8 million. Through the
budget conference process, the conferees settled
on a library appropriation of $16.2 million.
Friday morning began with a second budget
conference and 10 hours on the House floor. The
House debated 74 bills including HB149 dealing
with cameras at red lights. Last year this issue
generated a great deal of debate on the HouSe floor.
and the bill narrowly passed. This :year 1, expect.
much of the same: spirited debate and a very close
vote on the floor.
I continue to receive positive comments from
people who find my weekly updates helpful in
understanding the process of the legislature. While
I enjoy writing this newsletter and bringing you a.
sense of what goes on in Tallahassee from week
to week, there is no way I could possibly include
everything that takes place as it relates to the over
2,000 bills introduced by the House and Senate
during session. My intention is to provide you
with highlights of the key issues being debated, as
well as other activities in and around the Capitol
that impact legislators' decision making process. I
encourage you to visit the House website at www.
myfloridahouse.gov for detailed bill analysis, event
history and vote counts for any bill that has been
filed .during this session or past sessions.
Amid all of the bills, amendments and budgets
in Tallahassee, I was reminded Friday afternoon of
what is truly the
most important

Letters to the Editor


No permits for
yard sales
needed!
Dear Editor:
Concerning the issue of the
weekly "yard sale" at Sprinkle
Field, I am appalled that
someone would actually
complain! The only
person/persons it should be an
issue with are the owners of
the property.
For as long as I can
remember there have been
carnivals, revivals, car
promotions and sales, chicken
and rice dinners, barbecues
and our own Union County
marching band taking
advantage of that field, to
mention just a few. Perhaps it
is reasonable for some of those
"events" to be required to
purchase a permit or the
regular vendors that are there
all the time, but to suggest that
the average citizen, trying to
sell their wares and make a
buck, should obtain a $10
permit, to me, is absolutely
ludicrous.
It should not be the business
of the "complainers" to worry
about the sales tax. They
should worry about their own.
If a person makes $75 on a
particular weekend and fails to
report it as income. on their
taxes, I personally feel that is
their business and the business
of the IRS, not some
complaining little shop
owners.
In these hard economic
times, people should have the
right to sell their items without
worrying about who will take
issue with it. What are they
supposed to do? -Haul it off to
Goodwill for soineone else to
make the mighty buck? I have
not heard the local grocery
store whining about the
"produce man" taking away
their business. I have not heard
of the local gardening center
complaining about anyone
selling their plants, chicks or
anything else. Nor have I heard
of any other businesses
complaining. There are taxes
for everything now.
Let the people of Union
County sell their own stuff,
make a few dollars and let us
enjoy something to do early
Saturday mornings. Many of
these people do not live in the
city limits and find it a lot
harder to have a sale at their
own residences. Also, it saves


on gas for those who do yard
sale to have one central
location. This is a good thing,

Indians score first 11 runs



en route to winning district


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Keystone Heights scored
eight runs in the second
inning-which featured a
grand slam by Chase Julius-
and built an 11-0 lead en route
to defeating Baldwin 14-6 for
the District 4-3A baseball
championship on April 29 in
Keystone.
It was the fourth district title
in the past six years for the
Ijndians, who, as the fifth seed,
,'defeated top seed Bradford,
second seed Baldwin and
'fourth seed Baker County by a
combined score of 30-9.
. "Our at-bats have been
really good all week long,"
Keystone head coach Alan
NMattox said.
. Julius easily could've been
viewed as the team's offensive
AMVP, going 3-for-4 with five
RBI against Baldwin and
finishing the tournament 7-of-
:(Qwith nine RBI, but-it was a
:tournament that saw every
-player in the lineup make some
significant contribution. Ryan
'Latner and Evan Harvey, for
example, went a combined 13-


of-27 during the three games
the Indians played, while
Robbie Davis, Tyler Jolley and
Brantley Lott combined for 10
RBI.
Against Baldwin, eight and
nine batters Zach Lambert and
Holden Huggins combined to
go 4-for-6 with an RBI.
"Every guy with a jersey
contributes," Mattox said.
"Every guy has a job, and he
does it to the best of his ability.
They're a baseball team. There
is no MVP. They're just a
good group-a hard-working
group.
Keystone scored a run in the
top of the first .when Harvey
reached on a walk and rounded
the bases on three wild pitches.
Baldwin's miscues
continued in the second.
Keystone's lead-off batter,
Lott, was hit by a pitch.
Courtesy runner Isaac Ganey
stole second on 'a wild pitch
and scored when an error was
committed on a ground ball hit
by Davis. l5avis, who reached
safely, moved to second on a
wild pitch and then to third on


a single by Lambeit. Huggins
hit a single that scored Davis,
while Latner singled to score
Lambert, putting Keystone up
4-0.
The Indians loaded the bases
when Baldwin failed to record
a forceout at third after a bunt
by Harvey. That set the stage
for Julius' grand slam, which
he hit-over the fence in right
field. Lott later drove in
another run in the inning to put
Keystone up 9-0.
Keystone extended that lead
to 11-0 in the third. Lambert
reached on a walk, advanced to
second on a wild pitch and
scored on a single by Huggins
and subsequent error. A-
sacrifice fly by Harvey helped
Huggins move into scoring
position, while a single by
Julius brought him home.
Baldwin scored five runs in
the bottom half of the third.
The first two came after a
single by Dillon Board, and
error and a double by Bryan
Waller. Another single and a
catcher interference call loaded

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Ryan Latner's two-run
double in the bottom of the
second proved to be the only
runs the Keystone Heights
baseball team would need,
with pitcher Jeff Stadnicki and
the team's defense coming

Union's

Sheffield places

11th at state
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
In an event dominated by
juniors and seniors, Union
County High School's Tiana
Sheffield was one of two
freshmen to place among the
top 16 in the triple jump at the
Florida High School Athletic
Association Track and Field
Finals, which were held April
30 in Winter Park.
Sheffield, the only athlete
from Union County, Bradford
and Keystone Heights high
schools to qualify for state,
finished I11'h with a jump of
35'4.5". That left her
approximately 4 inches shy of
earning a medal.
Raigyne Moncrief of
American Heritage won the
triple jump championship with
a distance of 37'5.5".



RACE
Continued from Page 3B

because I'm the oldest and
know a little bit about it," he
said, "but .they all have jobs
they have to do."
Vic said he enjoys NASCAR
as well, but drag racing is what
he loves.
"My heart is set on my
grandsons growing up in the
drag-racing field," he said.
"They can come right out of
these (junior division) cars and
go into the big cars as soon as
they get to a certain age."
It is Quest's intent to stick
with drag racing, who shares
his grandfather's feelings.
"I like NASCAR, and I
watch NASCAR, but I've
never really wanted to do it,".
Quest said. "I always wanted
to drag race because they go a
lot faster."
It's all about going fast for
Quest. It's a sensation he has
wanted to experience .since he
was a little boy.
The quest, so to speak,
began with the purchase of a
Motocross bike, but Quest'said
that didn't work out because of
safety concerns. Vic said drag
racing is safer because of the
required safety inspections and
the fact drivers are secured so
strongly into their cars that
there is no way they can come
out .. .,.
"In Motocross, if you come
off of that thing, you're going
to get hurt," Vic said.
Quest said he had no idea
that drag racing was a
possibility at his age.
"I didn't ever think I'd be
doing it at this age until my
papa and I went out there on a
Saturday night and saw all
those juniors out there," Quest
said. "They had teenagers
driving, so we looked into that.
We got magazines and stuff to
find out how' old you had to
be."
Quest was 9 at the time, and
that's when he began racing in
the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing
League. Cars are half-scale
models of what adults drive,
and junior racers travel an
eighth of a mile as opposed to
a quarter of a mile.
"My top speed is like 70,"
Quest said. "At the end of the
year, I'll be going 85. That's as
fast as you. can go in the
NHRA series for juniors."
Quest finished third in his


division after his first year of
racing. Last year, he missed
the championship by a point.
This year, Quest is
competing in a car his family
purchased that was invovled in
five championships.
"This year, we're hoping to
get third place," Quest said.
"We've been working our way
up."
Vic has worked one-on-one
with Quest a lot more than he
has with Akai, but Akai, the
son of Autumn Tauro and
Kevin Cunard, learned a lot of
what he needed to know
simply by observing his
grandfather and cousin.
"When Akai started getting
in the car, he already pretty
much knew what he was
doing," Vic said.
Akai, who competed in three
races last year, and Quest are
both improving with each race,
Vic said. The cousins don't
compete head to head yet, but
Vic said that time will come.
"All we ask of them (in that
situation) is to do their best,"
Vic said.
By competing in the NHRA
Jr. Drag Racing League, Quest
and Akai can win money, as
well as earn scholarships.
There is also an opportunity to
compete in the Eastern
Conference Finals in Bristol,
Tenn. Vic said the event is
similar to Gatornationals, only
centered around children.
"NHRA has really stepped
up," Vic said: "They know


these are. our future drivers..
These are the kids whb are
going to drive the new cars
when they come out."
He may not be eligible to
compete as a junior drag racer,
but Vic can't help but, feeling
like a kid himself. .
"I love it," he said. "It makes
you think you're young again.
It helps me, and it relaxes me.
When I see my grandsons do
it, it just blows me away."
In a way, Vic is young again
and sitting behind the wheel of
a car. Quest admitted' he
spends his time before the race
thinking of his grandfather and
the things his grandfather has
taught him.
"I just sit there in my car and
think about all the stuff I
should do, and think about
what Papa told me to do before
the race," he said.
Quest's concentration is one
of the things that impresses his
grandfather.
"When he gets in the car, he
respects the car," Vic said of
Quest. "He knows it's not a
toy. It's the real deal."
As far as.Quest and Akai are
concerned, drag racing is a real
future. Both said they'd like to
race professionally.
If they do, they'll always
have the support of family-
especially from their.
grandfather.
"I just really want to race,"
Quest said. "My grandfather
said if-I want to race, I can stay
in it for as long as I want."




Akai Cunard
and Quest
Tauro show off
.. some hardware
earned at the
track. The two
have not raced
head-to-head, -
but grandfather
Vic Tauro said
that day will
eventually
come.

WELLS
Continued from Page 2B


CPA was with an accounting
firm in Tampa, where he
worked for two years. In 1962,
he and a friend, Jim Moore,
established a firm in
Gainesville, but Wells sold his
interest to his partner and
moved to Palatka. Wells
established a firm in Palatka,
which he operated for the next
16 years. (Moore later died,
but his firm continues to
operate.)
Wells married the former
Donna Cowart, a native of St.
Augustine and a descendant of
Minorcans, a contingent of
people from the island of
Minorca in the Mediterranean
Sea that landed in New
Smyrna in 1768 and moved to
St. Augustine in 1777. They
have a Spanish background.
The Wells have four
children and 15 grandchildren.
Wells had a number of
automotive dealers among his
clientele and felt he knew the
business quite well. He longed
to own a new car franchise and
began looking for a dealership
he could buy. He had just
about given up when ,the
Starke Chevrolet-Oldsmobile
franchise came up for sale.
Wells bought the dealership,
but it never become' a money-
maker, and Wells gave it up
after six years of operation and
returned to his first love-
accounting. He established a
new accounting firm in
Gainesville and has never
regretted the decision.

BMS softball team caps perfect season with SMAC title


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
It was the team's first time
trailing all season, but the
Bradford Middle School
softball team did not stay
down long, defeating Williston
12-2 in the April 21 Suwannee
Middle School Athletic
Conference championship
game and becoming the first-
ever BMS softball team to
finish a season with a perfect
record.
the 'Hurricanes (15-0) held
off Keystone Heights in a 5-3
win in the tournament
semifinals, but still outscored
their three tournament
opponents by a combined 36-
9. They opened the tournament
with a 19-4 win over Bronson.
"Every girl on this team has
worked so hard to be where we
are now," Bradford head coach
Amanda Reed said. "For the
last three-and-a-half months,
we have pushed them so hard
because we knew they wanted
to win no matter what it took.
We wanted a perfect season, so
we had to work harder than all

Womble. The move paid off
when Stadnicki struck out
Thomas Guinn to end the
inning.
In the sixth, after
Severance's home run, the,
Pirates had two runners on
with one out after a walk and a
hit batsman. Stadnicki struck
out two straight to end the
inning, with the second
strikeout coming after he fell
behind 3-1 in the count.
"Great coaching job by
(pitching coach) Ricky Julius,
and just a tough kid getting it
done on the mound," Mattox
said. "That's-just all there is to
it. (Stadnicki) was just
battling."
Stadnicki admitted he wasn't


the other teams. Our saying
was, 'If they put a lot into it,
then they will get a lot out of
it.'"
For the season, Bradford
outscored its opponents 180-
32, but Williston gave the
Hurricanes their first-ever
deficit at 1-0 in the top of the
first in the SMAC
championship game.
That deficit, though, did not
last long. Annie Luke hit a
two-run double in the bottom
of the first, scoring Lainie
Rodgers and Jaci Atkinson,
who reached on a single and an
error, respectively.
Williston tied the game in
the fourth, but Bradford retook
the lead in the bottom half of
the inning on a sacrifice RBI
by Taylor Cruce.
Shelby Wilkison ended the
game in the sixth with a base
hit that invoked the mercy rule.
Rodgers finished the game
4-for-4 with two doubles and
went 7-for-10 in all three
games of the tournament.
Cruce and Sabina Watson,
who had a home run, were

hitting his spots because' he
was being "a little too careful."
He knew, though, the outcome
didn't rest solely on his
shoulders.
"Coach always tells us it's a
team game," Stadnicki said. "If
it wasn't for the play of my
fielders, there's no way we
could've won this game."
Catcher Brantley "Duddy"
Lott came up big on three
occasions when he recorded
outs of lead runners.
Fernandina had two on with
one out in the second after
consecutive singles, but Lott
threw out Davis Bean on an
attempted steal of third.
Lott duplicated the feat in
the third when he threw Alex
Bridwell out .trying to steal
second after Bridwell led the
inning off with a single.
The Pirates' James Martin
led off the seventh with an


each 2-for-3 against Williston.
Cruce, Rodgers, Watson and
Taylor Crawford capped their
middle school careers by
playing on each of the last
three conference championship
teams.
The tournament began on
April 15 with a 19-4 win over
Bronson. Atkinson pitched and
was named the player of thl
game.
Rodgers, Rylee McClellan
and Alexis Shealey each went
2-for-3, with Rodgers hitting
two doubles.
Bradford scored the first five
runs of its April 19 game
against Keystone and held that
lead through five innings
before the Indians scored three
in the top of the sixth.
Luke drew a bases-loaded
walk in the third to force a run
home and put the 'Canes up 1-
0. In the fourth, Rodgers drove$'
in two runs before eventually
scoring herself on a passed
ball. Cruce drove in the last
run of the inning, putting
Bradford up 5-0.
After closing the gap to two
in the sixth, Keystone put its
first two runners on in the top
of the seventh with walks.
Cruce, who pitched for
Bradford, struck out the next
two batters. Keystone loaded
the bases with a single, but the
next batter grounded out to
Crawford at second.
Cruce allowed only three
hits, striking out 15.
At the plate, Rodgers was 3-
for-3 with a double, while
Atkinson was 2-for-3 with a
double and a sacrifice.
Rodgers and Luke wound up
leading the team this season in
RBI with 16 each. Rodgers
was also the co-leader in
singles (14) and doubles (5).
Atkinson hit 14 singles, as
well, while Cruce had five
doubles.
Watson led the team in


infield single, but he was
thrown out at second after Lott
fielded a bunt by Womble.
"I thought our, catcher
played the best game of his
career tonight," Mattox said.
"He played one heck of a
game. He threw some .people
out, but it was the job he did
handling the pitcher and
blocking balls. The job he did
receiving was by far the best
game he's ever played."
Stadnicki said Lott helped
him shake off the home run
with a trip to the mound and a
pep talk.
"That little encouragement
there kept me gding,"
Stadnicki said.
The Indians threatened to
score in the first when Latner
hit a lead-off single, followed
by a walk to Evan Harvey. A
foul pop-up to the catcher was
the first of three outs, though,

home runs (2) and stolen bases
(8). Rodgers had seven stolen
bases.
The team loses some key
eighth-graders, but Reed said
those players will have an
impact next season as well. It
will be evident in the play of
the younger players.
"They learned a lot from the
older girls and now know what
it takes to win the next SMAC
championship," Reed said.
Reed thanked her assistant
coaches Charles Reed and
Robert Wilkison for helping
make the, undefeated season a
reality, but in the end, the
players were the ones who
ultimately made it happen.
"I love this group of girls
and think very highly of each

Latner and Lott, who was 2-

multiple hitters.
