Swamp fire

blankets

county in

smoke

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
AND JAMES WILLIAMS
A wildfire in the Santa Fe Swamp
conservation area had burned more than
5-500 acres as of Tuesday afternoon,
but Bradford County Emergency Man-
agement reported that growth on Tues-
day was nowhere nearly as "explosive"
as it had been Monday.
"Intense efforts by firefighters on the
ground coupled with air suppression
efforts with helicopters and air tankers
have the fire at 30 percent contained,"
according to the Florida Division of
Forestry.
While the fire was contained within
established plow lines, not even the
Bradford County Emergency Manage-
ment Office was calling the fire "under
control." Firefighters continued to pa-
trol the accessible perimeter of the fire,
checking for flare-pps and hot spots.
Work was being done to strengthen the
perimeter along C.R. 21 B and Southeast
50'h Street north of Melrose as well as
S.R. 100 and S.E. 11"h Ave in Theressa.
Residents were warned to be vigi-
lant because of the danger of flare-ups,
which can send embers flying, igniting
new fires outside of the containment
area.
Homes along the edge of the swamp
have been threatened over the past cou-
ple of days, but the main threat from
the fire was the thick smoke blanketing
S.R. 100, C.R. 18 and the S.R. 21B area.
The threat to residents with bronchial
disorders and allergies was real. It also
made driving conditions dangerous, so
only local traffic was being allowed on
roads like Southeast I 1h Avenue and
C.R. 21B.
A ban on open outdoor burning is still
in affect for Bradford County and the
rest of the Suwannee Forestry Center.
A little rain over the weekend and
Monday'night was of little help since
the source of the fire is peat and muck
in the swamp as much as it is the under-
brush and trees.
-"Monday's showers were hit and
miss," said Bradford Emergency Man-
agement Information Officer Michael
Heeder. "We saw heavy rains in the
western areas of Bradford County,
while areas in the southern end saw only
light drizzle. That is why the burn ban
remains in place even after the arrival
of afternoon thunderstorms. Until there
is sufficient moisture county-wide, the
threat remains."
Heeder added that while any rain is
beneficial, a fire this size requires a sig-
nificant sustained rainfall-a soaking
rain-that would penetrate down below
the topsoil. Swampy areas can smol-
der below the surface even after a fire
appears to be out. Winds can dry the
ground out and a fire can flare up hours
or even days after the fact. As if to il-
lustrate Heeder's point, the columns of
smoke rising from the swamp had died
down on Tuesday morning only to be
seen again by mid-afternoon.
The firefighting effort is hampered
by the intense growth and soft, mushy
ground in the swamp, which makes
the fire virtually inaccessible to pump-
ers and tankers. Most of the vehicles
brought in by the Division of Forestry
were heavy earthmovers rather than
firefighting vehicles.

Thoburn


out at BHS

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Doug Thoburn will not be back as
principal at Bradford High School next
year.
Thoburn was informed Monday that
Superintendent Beth Moore would not
be,renewing his contract. When ques-
tioned about her decision, Moore shed
little light on the situation, admitting
only that the high school was in need of
academic improvement.
"Doug like other principals is on an-
nual contract and his contract was not
renewed," Moore said. "That's basi-
cally it."
A call placed to Thoburn's office at
the high school seeking comment was
not returned.
To give little insight into such person-
nel decisions is typical of Moore, who
says she doesn't want to "talk negative-
ly" about any employee. Moore was
tight lipped when she fired the previous
high school administrator, Lisa Gra-
ham, in 2009, and would only cite an
unspecified ethics code violation when
she asked Jeff Cable to resign as princi-
pal at the middle school a few months
before the end of the school year.
Then she shocked people again in
2010 when she tried to reassign a popu-
lar principal at Southside Elementary-
Bill McRae-to the high school as an
assistant principal, pointing only to
his previous experience at the school
and familiarity with the continuous
improvement model for instruction.
McRae, who was a year from retire-
ment, resigned rather than accept what
some saw as a demotion.

Not under arrest, but definitely in need of a rest following
a scary accident Sunday night.


Rescuers save three, including pooch-


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Bradford County emergency
responders participated in a har-
rowing rescue Sunday night, sav-
ing the lives of two crash victims
and their four-legged friend.
Bradford County Sheriff's Of-
fice Capt. Brad Smith said when
deputies arrived at the crash site
on Slab Road, the car's passen-
ger, 51-year-old Rodney Pucket
of Starke, was entrapped and
seriously injured. What's more,
the front end of the car, a 1995
Saturn, was in flames.
Smith said there was also a
small dog in the car,with Pucket.
Rescuers removed the dog to turn


their attention to the trapped pas-
senger, but as soon as they did,
the dog ran back into the car to
be with its owner, Smith said.
.It took a second attempt to res-
cue the pet, meanwhile a fire ex-
tinguisher was retrieved from one
of the patrol vehicles and used to
douse the flames. With the fire
out, rescuers to focus on extricat-
ing Pucket from the wreckage.
According to the report re-
leased by the Florida Highway
Patrol, the vehicle had been trav-
eling north on Southwest 75 h
Avenue, located west of Starke,
around 10:25 p.m. June 12. The
driver, 51-year-old Brenda S.
Slade, failed to negotiate a left
curve in the road. The car left the


roadway onto the east shoulder,
then spun counterclockwise and
struck a large tree.
Slade was transported to
Shands as the University of Flor-
ida with serious injuries, but a
helicopter was brought in to fly
Pucket to Shands in Jackson-
ville.
Smith said BCSO Sgt. Lee
Garnto was the first on scene,
followed by Stuart Braudrick
and Allan Hunsinger of Bradford
County EMS. Deputies James
Albritton, Beau Harrison and
Joe Jett assisted. The Heilbron
Springs and Starke fire depart-
ments and were also on hand
with equipment to perform the
extrication.

Guardians


help kids

Make a difference to a child
by volunteering as a Guardian
ad Litem. Every child deserves
a chance at a bright future that
holds the hope of a stable, nurtur-
ing family. Children taken away
from their parents due to neglect
and abuse often lose that hope
and are lost in a sea of social
workers, attorneys, therapists,
and caregivers.
A Guardian ad Litem volun-
teer is.a lifeline for them, some-
one whose attention is focused


on that child and what is in their
best interest. A Guardian volun-
teer monitors, investigates and
reports their recommendations
to the court-always with the
best interest of the child in mind.
They support the child's needs
by being their spokesperson and
assuring the child does not get
lost in the system.
By advocating for children's
best interests in the court system,
Guardian ad Litem volunteers
can be the difference between
success and failure in a child's


life.
It takes about 6-12 hours.of
your time per month to change
a child's life forever. Training,
legal, and staff support are pro-
vided. Call 904-966-6237 or go
to guardianadlitem.org for infor-
mation.

Woman attacks
FPL worker with
lawn chair, two
tennis rackets
and a can of
Mountain Dew
Ruby D. Everette, 37. was sen-
tenced to six months probation.
50 hours of community service,
and was ordered to write a letter
of apology after pleading no con-.
test to disorderly conduct.
According to a Bradford Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office report,on Jan.
6, a Florida Power and Light
worker went to Everette's home
to disconnect her power for non-
payment. Everette began calling
the worker names, then hurled a
lawn chair and two tennis rackets
at the worker, but missed.
She then walked over to the
worker's truck to retrieve one
of the rackets when she spot-
ted a cooler in the back. From
;:the cooler, she took two cans of
SMountain Dew. When the work-'
er asked her to return the soft
drinks, Everette poured one out
on the ground, then heaved the
other at the utilities employee,
but again missed her mark.
After Everette continued to
threaten the worker with one
of the tennis rackets, he left the
property and called the sheriff's
office.

Stolen copper
dealer draws
probation
Jeffery Ray Swilley, 33, was
sentenced to three years proba-
tion after pleading no contest to
dealing in stolen property.


According to a sheriffs of-
fice report, on Dec. 2'1,2010. a
truck matching the description of
a vehicle seen at a Union County
Clay Electric substation, at the
time of a copper theft was seen at
a Hampton recycling business.
After Union County Deput)
Scott Konkel arrived at the re-
c\cler, he contacted an investi-
gator. The deputy described to
Konkel some of the tools stolen
from the Clay substation, and
Konkel found a bag in the truck
containing all the tools described
by the Union official. Swilley
was arrested on an out-of-county
warrant.

Deer hunter
jailed for
50 days
Houston James Fender, 19,
was sentenced to 50 days in jail
and two years probation after
pleading no contest to introduc-
ing contraband into a state prison
facility, illegal taking of deer-
attempt, and hunting with a sus-
pended license.
According to court papers, on
Jan. 6, Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation officers received a tip that
someone was hunting on state
prison property, near the Brad-
ford, Union county line. Two
FWC officers caught one hunter,
Aaron Griffis, in Union County.
Griffis told the lawmen that two
more hunters, Fender, and Shea
Wilson were also in the area.
More FWC personnel arrived
in the area, in addition to Brad-
ford and Union deputies, and a
K-9 unit from Union Correction-
al Institution. A Bradford deputy
picked up Fender and Wilson on
a dirt road just south of state pris-
on property, but both denied they

were hunting. The lawmen then
used the UCI dogs to establish a
track where the two men entered
state prison property. They also
recovered two rifles, hidden in
bushes, near the dirt road where
Fender and Wilson were caught.
At the time of his Jan. 6 ar-
rest, Fender was on probation
after pleading no contest to pos-
session of a deer during a closed
season. That sentence and plea
resulted from a fall 2010 arrest,
after FWC officers found photos
on Fender's My Space page of
him posing with three buck deer
with velvet.
Fender initially told FWC Lt.
Paul Graham that the photos
were taken )ears ago. But after
Graham pointed out to Fender
that the accused white Chevrolet
pickup also in the photo was, ac-
cording to records, acquired by
Fender in March 2010, Fender
admitted picking up in bucks in
July or August. In addition to
one year probation, Fender also
surrendered his hunting license.

Thief asks
victim to report
him to sheriff
James Walker Vinson Jr., 28,
was sentenced to three years pro-
bation after pleading no contest
to burglary and grand theft.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, on April 6, a Lawtey
woman returned home to find
her bedroom window unlocked.
Later that night she discovered
jewelry, antique coins, and paper
currency missing from a wooden
box,she kept hidden in the bed-
room. Later that night, she con-
fronted Vinson, a relative, who
confessed to taking the items.
He told the victim he had trad-
ed much of the loot for drugs,
but returned some of the items to
the owner. After returning some
of the jewelry to his kin, Vinson
asked the victim to report his
crime to the sheriff's office so he
could turn himself in and receive
treatment for his drug addiction.

The Finleys moved to their

years ago. At the front of their
property was an old house with
antique rose bushes in the yard.
The house was beyond repair but
Laura Finely rescued the roses.
She's not sure what variety they

Results for algebra assessment released


Six graduate kindergarten at Starke Christian'


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The results of the school dis-
trict's first algebra end-of-course
:exam are in, and Bradford Coun-
ty ninth-graders were very much
in line with the rest of the state.
According to the results, the
mean score on the exam in Brad-
ford County was 48. The state
average was 49.
The scores also reveal that half
o:f Bradford ninth graders scored
'in the middle of the range, with
approximately a quarter achiev-
ing higher scores and a quarter
:falling in the lower score range.
Baker, Clay and Union coun-
ties had mean scores that sur-
passed the state average, with
around 40 or more of the students
in those counties receiving high
:scores on the test.
Algebra was the first end-
of-course exam introduced in
:.Florida high schools. This and


a geometry end-of-course exam
will replace the 10* grade FCAT
math test.
Algebra is considered im-
portant as a gateway course for
college and career certification
programs, according to Florida
Education Commissioner Eric J.
Smith.
In a statement last week, Smith
said, "Today's release of Alge-
bra I EOC results represents a
significant milestone in Florida's
education improvement efforts
for two main reasons..First, these
exams are measuring student per-
formance on very clear, course-
specific Algebra 1 content stan-
dards that will allow our teachers
to study results, benchmark their
performance and refine their in-
structional approaches as neces-
sary.
"Second, this EOC assessment
was given to students almost ei-
tirely via computer, represent-
ing a very large-scale, very suc-


cessful statewide introduction to
computer-based testing, meaning
more time for our students to
learn the important algebra con-
tent and a quicker turnaround for
results in the years ahead."
In addition to measuring how
well students mastered what was
being taught, performance on the
test was also used to calculate
30 percent of their final course
grades.
In addition to algebra and ge-
ometry,. end-of-course exams to
be introduced include test for
biology, American history and
civics. The state is also lookirig
at the feasibility of developing
such an exam for high school
English/language arts to replace
the Ireading and writing FCAT
tests.
Rising ninth-graders taking al-
gebra beginning this fall will be
the first group required to pass
the EOC for course credit.


Six kindergarten students graduated from Starke Christian School on Thursday, June
2. These students presented a program for their family and friends in which they
recited scripture and poetry, demonstrated their reading skills and performed the play
"Jesus Walks on Water." The kindergarten graduating class of Starke Christian School
for 2011 is (front to back, I-r) Chloe Templeton, Kaila Jefferson, Catarina Walker, Joey
Kirkland, Kailan Jefferson and Gabe Buchanan.


MURDER
Continued from page 1A

the murder.
The two apparently visited
Hudnall the middle of last week,
but while Stepahnie left nearly
an hour later, Guenevere stayed
behind. After Hudnall had fallen
asleep, Guenevere reportedly
took a. pickax from the porch,


entered his bedroom and struck
him several times in the head and
chest.until he was silent.
She left and drove home using
Hudnall's truck after attempt-
ing to make the crime look like
the result of a break-in. The two
returned to Hudnall's home the
next morning to report having
found him dead.
The Gainesville Sun reported
that Alachua deputies said the


two women were having finan-
cial problems; their home was in
foreclosure and they killed Hud-
nall for money.
The women live on Gilda
Court in the McRae area. Both
have been charged with first-
degree premeditated murder and
are currently being held at the
Alachua County Jail.


FIRE
Continued from page 1A
Firefighters did have their
trucks in the area to protect homes
endangered by the wildfire. Mon-
day afternoon, for example, the
Theressa Volunteer Fire Depart-
mert was already planning to set
tfp'engines and equipmentin .one
.resident's front yard.
. Theressa volunteers Joey
,Dampier and Chip Ward were
on scene with Bradford County
Commissioner Danny Riddick.
,,Dampier said that over the
weekend, winds had come from
all four directions, fanning the
flames in first one direction and
another. Ward described the fire
as a circle deep in the swamp that
was beginning to grow.
"What we need is a good thun-
derstorm with no lightning,"
Dampier said.
' Bradford County Emergency
Management representatives
Sid on Monday that Southwest
.Ij~h Street had been closed to all
jpt local traffic due to motor-
iSts trying to catch a glimpse of
tJe Santa Fe Swamp fire. Late
Tuesday, the -Bradford County
Sheriff s Office was also steering
traffic away from S.R. 21B.
: According to Theressa Fire
chief Percy Sullivan, the -road
Closures were necessary because
there were numerous vehicles
traveling the roadway which
could impede emergency vehi-
cles, should the fire flare up and
jump containment lines.
"We were getting too many
gawkers," said Officer Jim Gill.
As of Tuesday, smoke re-
mained a concern in southern
Bradford County, in particular.
During smoky conditions, driv-
ers are cautioned to keep wind-
shields and headlights clean to
reduce glare, reduce speed and
turn on low beam headlights,
signal turns well in advance and


brake early when approaching a
stop.
Residents with asthma, car-
diovascular disease, the elderly
and children should restrict their
outdoor activities until the smoke
clears, emergency management
representatives said. Children,
even those without preexisting
conditions,.are considered a sen-
sitive population because, their
lungs are still developing. Indi-
viduals who smoke are also sus-
ceptible, due to decreased lung
functions. Residents are asked to
evaluate their health conditions
and limit.outside activities until
conditions improve.
Where the smoke travels is
dependent on the wind. Officials
advised residents to remain in-
doors when smoke becomes an
issue in their areas and avoid
outdoor activities.'
Several firefighters have been
treated for smoke inhalation dur-
ing the course of the response.
According to the Division of
Forestry, firefighters from forest-
ry, Alachua, Bradford and Clay
counties, and even Rayonier have
participated in the response.
The fire apparently started a
week ago when a storm system
moved through the area and
lightning struck. It wasn't spot-
ted until Wednesday, when a pi-
lot with the division of forestry
flew over.
Bradford firefighters have also
-had to battle much smaller fires
off of C.R. 227.
As of Monday, hundreds of


wildfires had burned thousands
of acres throughout the Suwan-
nee Forestry Center, which cov-
ers Baker, Bradford, Suwannee,
Columbia and Hamilton coun-
ties.

Election law troubles some


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A la%% impacting elections in
Florida has draw n criticism for
being political) motivated.
Among other things, the law
passed during the most recent
legislative session will shorten
the earl) voting period from 14
-to eight days.
Farl\ \oting has grown in
popularity since the opportunity
was first introduced. Critics of
the new la%\ have noted that the
percentage of black voters vot-
ing early was particularly high in
2008 when Barack Obama was
elected president.
According to a recent story
that appeared in the Gainesville
Sun, 54 percent of black voters
voted earl) in 2008, not counting
.those who voted by absentee bal-
lot, compared to just 27 percent
of white voters.
SThat has led critics of the new
law to speculate that it is a politi-
cally motivated attempt to influ-
ence the next election and will
disproportionately affect black
voters. Supporters, however,
said shortening the early voting
period would save money, a fa-
miliar theme during the current
recession.
While only 44 percent of black
voters in Bradford County voted
early in 2008, it was still a strong
turn out. Bradford County' Super-
visor of Elections Terry Vaughan
has noted the popularity of early
voting-and the tendency for
election laws to be politically


motivated.
"I'm a little disappointed that
they changed the early voting
period. It will make it more dif-
ficult for us because of the sheer
volume that wve anticipate, espe-
ciall) for the 2012 general elec-
tion," said Vaughan.
The law will allow for expand-
ed voting hours on the eight earl)
voting da)s (so the total number
of available hours remains 96).
but Vaughan said staffing the
election site for up to 12 hours
on a single day could be diffi-
cult and eliminate any potential
cost savings. Still it will be more
difficult for larger counties with
longer lines than smaller coun-
ties. he said.
Vaughan said the motive be-
hind the law could be less about
swaying elections or disenfran-
chising a particular group than it
is about candidates and the dif-
ficulty they have had knowing
how to campaign around early
voting.
"I think part of the motivation
to shorten the early voting pe-
riod was to make it easier to run
state campaigns," he said, but he
qualified that by adding that the
election legislation he's seen in
his 20 years in office has been
passed with politics in mind.
"That's just the reality, and it
doesn't matter which party is in
power. There's always political
undercurrents at play."
SVaughan expressed concerns
about additional changes, includ-
ing the ability of the legislature
to insist that the full text of pro-


posed constitutional amendments
appear on the ballot. Ballots that
are several pages long will be
confusing as well as expensive.
he said.
"It's a terrible problem we're
going to have to deal with if we
can't get the legislature to revisit
that issue," Vaughan said.
The law\ places additional veri-
fication requirements for signa-
tures on petitions as well.
The ne\\ law eliminates the
ability for voters to update.their
addresses at their polling loca-
tion unless they have moved
within county. Others will now
have to cast provisional ballots, a
ballot that will only be counted if
the voters' eligibility can be de-
termined. The new lawx also re-
quires groups involved in regis-
tering new voters to submit those
forms within 48 hours of being
completed or face a stiff fine.
SSupporters say these, aspects
of the law are aimed at prevent-
ing voter fraud. Critics say they
represent an attempt to suppress
votes.
The law moves up the 2012
primary election by two weeks
and will allow a nine-member
panel to choose a date for the
presidential preference primary
that maximizes the state's influ-
ence in selecting the Republican
presidential candidate.
Gov. Rick Scott has signed the
new election bill into law, but it
will apparently also need clear-
ance from the U.S. Department
of Justice for counties that have a
history of voting problems.

ernor of District 3 Altrusa at the
recent district conference held in
Concord, N.C.
Hardy has been an Altrusan

served as vice governor and trea-

Newly installed Gov. Beverly
wasted no time in launching her
Biennium Project called Al-
trusa Supporting Our Soldiers
(SOS). In concert with a recent
national push by First Lady Mi-
chelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden,
this project's main goal will be to
provide support to a military ser-
vice person stationed abroad. -
President Obama was recently
quoted as saying, "The United

other, especially those who serve
and sacrifice in our name."
Hardy said. "Support for our
soldiers is crucial. As Ameri-
cans. \we need to step up and help
as \\e can.
Lida Coffman, from Altrusa
Orlando/Winter Park, reported
-that she and her father, a World
War II veteran, were watching a
Ken Burns documentary about
troops stationed from four conm-
munities across America who
were. deployed overseas. The
documentary) showed a photo-
graph of mail call with the eager
young faces waiting for some-
thing from home.
Her dad sadly recalled,"That's
great they got behind their boys,
but there were a lot of boys who
never got anything and that was
hard." The pain was still etched
into his memory after65 years.
Altrusa' Project SOS has one
main goal. It is to have every
club in the district "adopt" a
military ser ice person serving
abroad. Service members and
their farnm i- I'.e ... l..e I c.l", .ev-

not know. The type of support


Altrusans can provide will go a
long way in helping them face
the stress of active duty service.
SOS is more than a project. It
is a commitment to continuing
Altrusa's service by supporting
America's heroes in our commu-
nities.
The SOS committee will be
chaired by Mary Kane from At-
lanta, who is retired from the
Army Nurse Corps Reserves and
whose son is currently serving in
the Army in Afghanistan; Car-
ole DeCelle from Starke, whose
husband is a veteran of two wars
and whose son is in the Air Force
serving in Kazakhstan, and; Car-
ol Thomas from Orlando-Winter
Park, who is a graphic artist and
works on projects for the Ma-
rines.
In urging clubs to participate
in this worthwhile project, De-
Celle said, "Whether you agree
with the war or not, we need to
remember Project SOS is not
about the. war. It is about the
warriors."
Starke Altrusa will sponsor tAvc
soldiers rom the.Starke area.

AMP summer program


holding open house.


Starke Church of God by
Faith's summer program will
get under way by the end of the
month, and a special open house
for interested families will be
held June 20 at 6:30 p.m.
The AMP summer program-
which is short for Achieving
Maximum Potential-is funded
through a 21" Century Commu-
nity Learning Center Grant from
the Department of Education. It
is an extension of the after-school
program for middle school stu-
dents that takes place during the
school year at the church's learn-
ing center on S.R. 16, but it also
open to students who will be en-
tering sixth grade in the fall.
There is no charge to attend
the program, which will run
from June 27 through Aug. 8,
8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday
through Friday. Transportation
to and from the church's com-
munity center on S.R. 16 is pro-
vided to those.who need and re-
quest it. Breakfast and lunch are
provided.
The purpose of the program is
to provide academic. cultural and
recreational opportunities to stu-
dents in this age range. Though
certainly not restricted by race,
the program will focus on im-
parting the economic, political.
social and cultural contributions
of African-Americans. That will


include exposure to African-
American music, dance, cuisine,
etc., as well as field trips that fo-
cus on the contributions of Afri-
can Americans.
In addition, there will be daily
enrichment in the areas of math.
reading and science with certi-
fied teachers, and sports and
other recreational activities.
Plus. students will participate in
a summer-long learning project.
The program is primarily for
those who show the most aca-
demic need. For public school
students, that usually means
they score at level 1 or 2 on the
FCAT. The program is also open
to private school students who
qualify as well. Priority will be
shown for students most in need
of enrichment services, but oth-
ers may be accepted as space is
available.
Parents will need to complete
an application for their child to
be considered. Applications are
available at Bradford Middle
School, all county elementary
schools and at the Starke Church
of God by Faith Community
Learning Center.

The average delay to motorists
with no violations was less than

everyone made it through the
checkpoint. Officers arrested a
number of motorists for intoxica-
tion, drug possession and driving
with a suspended license.

Transportation, Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections, Alachua
County Sheriffs Office, and the

sist his efforts to combat DUI
related traffic crashes within the
county.

Santa Fe College still accepting


students for College for Kids programs


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
The lazy days of summer are
upon us, but a part of summer
can be anything but lazy for
children of a certain age,
thanks to the Jr. College for
Kids and Colege for Kids
programs at Santa Fe College


in Starke.
There is still room available
in both programs, which give
children a chance to have a bit
of fun while learning
something new, whether it be
cooking up solutions to
mysteries or really cooking up
something in a kitchen.


College for Kids can even
help fill the void for any kids
reluctant to leave their video
gaming systems behind by
offering a Wii Fitness course.
SDesigned as a way to offer
children a fun' and learning-
filled summer, while also
giving them .a little bit of a feel'


for college life by registering
for courses and taking courses
on a college campus, College
for Kids, which is open to
rising sixth- 10-graders, was
first offered in Starke eight
years ago. This year marks the
first time.the Starke campus
has offered Jr. College for
Kids, which is open to rising
third-fifth-graders.
The Jr. College for Kids
program begins Monday, June
27, and runs through Friday,
July 1. Children register for
four courses from among a
selection of 15, with the day
beginning at 8 a.m. and ending
at 11:55 a.m.
The cost is $75, which
includes all lab fees and
materials.
Games, songs and other
activities are used to help those
interested learn a new
language in the Signing Times
sign language course, while
math is given a tasty twist in
the M&M Measurements
course.
Jr. College for Kids
participants can learn tips on
how to care for their furry
friends in Pet Care, or give
way to their inner detective in
the Solving Mysteries course.
The older children get their
turn when the College for Kids
program kicks off Monday,
July II, and runs through
Friday, July 22. Children
register for either three courses
or six courses, depending on
whether or not they want to
attend half-day (8:10 a.m.-
noon or 12:35-4:25 p.m.) or
full-day sessions (8:10 a.m.-
4:25 p.m. The cost is $117 for
a half day or $234 for a full
day.
Participants can choose from
among 39 courses, putting
their computer skills to use-
or learning new ones-in the
Web Page Design course, or
developing their green thumbs
in the Square Yard Garden
course.
Students can use their hands
in several courses, whether it's
whipping up a delicious treat
in Life on the Kitchen Trail,
creating artistic works in Cool
Crafts, Gyotaku Printmaking,
Jewelry Design, Leather I,
Leather II and Imprinting,
Perfect Basket, Sculpture in
Paper, Sculpture Screamers
and Woodworking, or
concocting something
interesting-and possibly
messy-in Ooey Gooey
Science.
Both College for Kids and
Jr. College for Kids programs
offer a variety of other courses
in arts, ijniuaic e. sciences,
math and other areas.

I guess that we never fully 7 !
appreciate someone until
they're no longer here. I'm I .
saying this about my father. ,-
My earthly father pointed me
to my heavenly father.
Just as my earthly father -
chastised me my heavenly
father does also. But you
know, both do so out of an w r
agape love desiring the very
best for me. That's how I knew I was my daddy's son, because he
disciplined me.
My father had the greatest earthly influence on me and my life. Daddy
wasn't perfect nor did he think he was perfect, but oh how we need dads
like my dad. I pray that I will use my earthly dad as an example.
But most of all I pray I will look to my heavenly father as the perfect
example. The Bible says, in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that
he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should
not perish, but have everlasting life."
This is a well quoted verse, but now I want us to pay close attention to
John 3:17, "For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world through him might be saved."
This is the good news God is love, in spite of me God still loves
me. And God loves you. Thank God for his amazing love.

Small Farms
and Alternative
Enterprises
Conference set
for July in
Kissimmee
The University of Florida's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences and
Florida A&M University's
Small Farms and Alternative
Enterprises Focus Team
announce that the third annual
Florida Small Farms and
Alternative Enterprises
Conference will be held in
Kissimmee July 15- 17.
The goal of the conference is
to provide farmers with up-to-
date, research-based, in-depth
educational information, as
well as aiming to facilitate,
solutions-based collaboration
by encouraging networking
and open dialogue among
members of Florida's ,small-
farms community.
Additionally, the conference
is an excellent vehicle for
increasing awareness of
Florida's small-farms industry,
which organizers accomplish
by actively marketing to
decision-makers, supporting
institutions and agencies, and
other agricultural
professionals.
The conference has been
successful since its inaugural
year and is attended by a wide


range of interested parties:
small-family, transitional,
beginning and experienced
farmers; allied-industry
representati\ es: educators;
researchers; policy-makers;
small-farm commodity
associations; foundations; and
others interested in continuing
to strengthen Florida's small-
farm community. The majority
of attendees and exhibitors
return to subsequent
conferences.
The conference is an
outstanding opportunity for
Florida's small farmers to hear
noted experts speak about the
latest science and research
relevant to their industry while
networking with other small
farmers in a relaxed
atmosphere, and sampling
locally grown foods. Florida's
small farmers find that, in this
forum, their diverse
experiences, coupled with their
universal challenges
(economics, regulatory
pressures, marketing, etc.),
create a unique opportunity for
collaborative problem solving
and resource sharing.
It is also an excellent chance
for exhibitors to demonstrate
their products and services to
some of the most forward-
thinking small farmers,
educators and researchers in.
Florida.
Through concurrent,
educational sessions led by
industry experts and noted
researchers, the Florida Small
Farms and Alternative
Enterprises Conference
provides opportunities for
attendees to learn about
groundbreaking research and
access educational support

Jacksonville gets a surprise


with outcome of mayor's race


It w\\as the Republican's race
to lose. which they did, with
otherss electing an underdog to
the Jacksonville mayor's
office, replacing a popular
Republican mayor that had
given the city two terms of
Successful leadership.
To further the
Embarrassment of losing a race
he should have won, Mike
Hogan, the white Republican,
lost to a minority candidate
with. a much smaller
constituent base. The quirk
:gives notice to Republicans
that taking an election for
Granted is a dangerous modus
-operandi for winning public
office.
The voters of Jacksonville
went to the polls last Tuesday
to select a mayor for the next
four years and gave
Democratic candidate Alvin
Brown 1,661 more votes than
Hogan received. The
difference in vote count was
large enough that it didn't
trigger a recount, and none was
made.
How could the voters of
Jacksonville turn down a
Hogan, a member of a family
so prominent that several
landmarks-Hogan Street,
Hogan Creek, Hogan Road-
are named for it? Hogan has
been well-received by the
- .electorate, considering he was
in the legislature three years,
on the Jacksonville city
council for eight years and a
county tax collector for eight
years.
Has he lost his moxie? Why
did he lose this race while
running against a minority
competitor?
First, take nothing away
from Brown. He lived with his


mother and grandmother in
Buford, S.C., prior to moving
to Jacksonville as a teenager.
He joined St. Joseph
Missionary Baptist Church
downtown and became close
friends with its pastor, Rev.
H.T. Rhim. The two men
continue to have a close
relationship. After high school.
he began working for Winn-
Dixie, moving up the
promotional ladder from stock
boy to meat cutter. He attended
Jacksonville University and
received two degrees, a BS and
an MBA. He is, reportedly, a
good speaker.
Brown's campaign didn't
seem to have a central theme,
but he addressed the usual
political subjects of jobs,
schools and employment.
Several mornings each week,
he would visit various
McDonald's restaurants and
talk with customers over
pancakes and sausage
McMuffins. He listened well,
and was also 'an excellent
speaker. He is married with
two sons-a much 'respected
.family man and community
'leader.
Hogan, though, isn't without
outstanding credentials-a
native'of Duval County, scion
of a prominent family, long-
time employee of the
telephone company and 19
years of public service. It's a
commanding resume, and all
things being equal, it should
have carried him into the
mayor's office. His supporters
say, "He is the nearest thing to
walking on water." Hoga'n is
an active member of the
downtown First Baptist
Church, a family man with
three children and has an


outstanding record of civic
activity.
How can a man with those
accolades fail to win.. an
election?
Hogan has his detractors, but
none attack his character.
Some opponents say they fear
him and feel he has a "lack of
vision" to lead the city
forward. They' also see him as
making unrealistic promises,
such as "never raising taxes,"
and focusing on potholes
rather than on the big-picture
projects. It's tough to find
defining problems with a
candidate whose record of
public service is without
blemish for a lifetime.
So why did his candidacy
fail?
First off, the opinions
expressed here are mine alone,
nothing more. I read both "The
Gainesville Sup" and "The
Florida Times-Union" every
day in an attempt to be
informed on current issues.
Others may read the same
newspapers and formulate
differing opinions. That's what
makes America.
Duval County schools may
be the poorest in the state, and
no one seems to know the

Letters to the Editor


Quick thinking
caused a
positive
outcome
Dear Editor:
I just want to congratulate
the bus driver on 301 on a
Wednesday "for her quick
thinking by not letting a child
off the bus. She had stopped
the bus, but the car behind her
couldn't stop. They hit their
brakes and burned rubber, but
they still couldn't stop, so they
just passed her on the right
side of the bus where the child
wouldhave been getting off
and could have been killed.
It was a scary thing to see.
But I'm glad she had not let
the child off yet. I think people
should pay more attention and
look out for the school buses.
Thanks be to the driver of the
precious children.
L.B.D.
Starke

Thank you,
Starke, for your
kindness
Dear Editor:
Once upon a time on our
annual snowbird flight to
Pennsylvania, only five hours
on the road and the truck
coasted to a stop. The tour
truck ended up in Starke.
Realizing it was 12 noon on
Memorial Day weekend, I
thought we were doomed. But
to our surprise, Starke Auto
Repair would check out the
truck on Monday at 9 a.m., and
they did exactly that, and by
1:30 p.m., the truck was
finished, very reasonably.

Their generosity and just
plain kindness were wonderful.
Many thanks to Ravice and
Paul. And through this all, we
had the pleasure of staying at
the Econo Lodge and met the
most gracious manager, Salai,
along with two great
employees, Tressa and Stacy.
Not only did they keep us
clean and neat, but their
pleasant personalities kept.our
thoughts from our troubles. So
if you ever have a problem in
Starke, or are just passing
through, you will be among
friends. By the way, Grannie's
serves up a delicious meal.

Privatization of
prisons is not
the answer
Dear Editor:
It is time that I exercised my
first amendment right to free
speech as I have been silent
too long on too many subjects.
My continued silence is
something that neither I nor
the citizens of Florida can
afford.
I am a correctional officer
sergeant with the state of
Florida and I am typical of
many of my brethren in
uniform. After high school, I
joined the Army to defend my
country from the communist
threat and when I watched the


SBerlin wall come down, I
believed the mission ,\was
accomplished. I served"
because 1 owed it to this great
country that grants everyone a
chance to be and do whatever
they' aspire, so long as they
were willing to work toward it.
After 1 left the Army) I
decided to go into law
enforcement because one of
the things 1 detest most is a
thug or any sort that takes
advantage of another person
just because they can. In the
past 21 years that I have served
the citizens of Florida as a
corrections officer, I have been
continually bemused by our
efforts to rehabilitate our
"thugs" by appeasement. We
have continually given our
prisoners more rights and
privileges until their
population has exceeded
100,000. Yet, we scratch our
heads and wonder what we can
do to reduce recidivism when
we're supplying them -all the
benefits that many working,
productive citizens can' ill
afford or qualify for such as
education, healthcare and
entertainment.
As a corrections officer, I
have not seen even a cost-of-
living increase in five years
while programs for the inmates
have continued to expand,

Another year has passed
that you have been gone.
.Oh how I wish that I
could turn back time; but
God knew that it was time
Sfor you to go home. It was
on God's agenda and not
mine. When I was young
and growing up, you and
I would disagree on
things now and then; but
long gone are the days
that I can call you on the
phone and say to you,
:"Dad, do you remember
..:when?" As I now have
children and
grandchildren of my own,
"I know now how proud
.you must have been. As
..the generations continue
..to come and go,. your love
::for all of us is instilled
-. within. It was with mixed
''emotion that I had to let
you go, but I knew that
you didn't want to stay.
SYou were headed home to
Jesus to live forever, and
that's when you drew your
'last breath, you were on
'..your way. There is not
one day that goes by that
.I don't miss you, Dad, but
I know you are with Jesus
'.and nothing makes me
more glad.
Miss you, Dad!

a part of such a loving
community. It is very
evident that God lives
here in Bradford County.

Fifty-one years was such
a short time to share all
the love he had to give.
He was a good son and
wonderful father and a
true friend to many. He
would have given you the
shirt off his back if you
needed it. He went the
extra mile to help you.
He was a boat captain at
a resort in south Florida
where he enjoyed his
work as much as he
enjoyed the great
outdoors. He was a
giving and loving person
and anyone who ever
knew him, misses him.
Walk the path slowly, son,
so that we might catch up
with you later.
We all love and miss you.

answer.. if there be one.
Residents are aware of the
shortcomings and are very
sensitive about the issue. Gov.
Rick Scott's coming down
hard on public schools touched
a nerve, especially in Duval
County, and voters took
revenge on the Republican
candidate because of their
disdain for Scott's actions.
Hogan ran a good race,
losing by only 1,661 votes, but
he received few black votes.
Brown, without a doubt,
picked up the black vote;
giving him an automatic base
of some 13 percent of the votes
cast.
The Hogan camp was overly
optimistic and did not work as
hard.as the Brown camp, a sad.
mistake for a Republican
candidate under the
circumstances of the 2011
election.
Every election is different
'nd has circumstances peculiar;
to itself. Winning candidates
discern the important issues
and direct their campaigns
accordingly. Those who fail to
read the electorate correctly
pay for their failures.
Hogan never had a chance.

LETTER
Continued from Page 48

particularly in the areas of
mental health. The phrase'"if
you build it, they will come"
has a certain ring of truth and-
they have come. As I stated,
we now have more than
100,000 prisoners taking
advantage of the tax-paying
citizens of Florida because
they can.
Now the economy has gone
into a tailspin and what is a
state government to do when it
has more going out than
coming in? Well, it's not
cutting entitlements to non-
productive individuals. It is
cutting benefits, salaries and
jobs of the productive citizens.
Many of these productive
citizens are state workers who
are not overpaid compared to
their private counterparts, as
some have stated, because in
many cases there is not a true
counterpart in the private
sector. Corrections officers, for
example, have been compared
to security guards. I have done
both and believe me no
security guard has ever entered
a cell to extract a person
covered in blood, throwing
feces and wielding a
homemade knife. Then once
having extracted that person,
we provide them first-aid,
write three hours of reports


measure, the state's budget
thai %Las recently passed calls
for the privatization of many
state correctional facilities.
These private facilities, by lass,
must operate on at least seen
percent less money than what
the state can operate them. The
problem comes in on how they
accomplish this. Private
facilities hand pick which
inmates they house in order to
maintain their profit margin.
Of course, they pick the
healthiest, most docile inmates
to keep the healthcare,
supervision and maintenance
costs low. While the sickest,
oldest and more aggressive
inmates are retained by the
state, now in fewer facilities


with less staff.
In many cases, this profit
margin eventually dries up as
the facilities age and the tax
breaks stop. What happens
then? Well. what does a
private. for profit, business do
when a contract is no longer
making the shareholders
money? Decline to renew the
contract, obviously. After all.
they're in business to make
money and if the public safety
is no longer making them
money... Well, that's the
public's problem, now isn't it?
So, the state has to pick it back
up because like it or not the
job has to get done.
Meanwhile. my brethren and
I will be forced to deal with


the most violent inmates in
less space and with less staff
for less compensation and be
further demonized \when things
inevitably go wrong. When the
private sector bails, we'll suck'
it up and deal with what's
thrown back on our plates with
our diminished ranks and do
our best to do what w\e \ent
into this field of work to do;
protect our families and fellows
citizens.

It only takes a few minutes
of surfing news clips on the
internet to see that other states,
like Arizona, have tried
privatizing prisons and it
doesn't work out well, except
for the shareholders.


For my part, I am outraged
that my brethren will have to
suffer, bleed and, God forbid,
die doing what they believe in.
It is painfully obvious that they
are serving their fellow
citizens out of honor and
integrity because after fi\e
years without a cost-of-living
adjustment they have really
received a 15 percent pay cut
and still carry on the mission.
When I started as a
correctional officer w\e made
little more than minimum
wage but \we did the job
because it \\as the right thing.
Ask yourself \swho \ou \\ant
protecting you, people who do
the job out of ideology or the
bottom line'?


If the bottom line is still
what interests you most then
think about this for a moment.
We currently have several
private facilities in Florida
already and I can attest that in
most cases the state
correctional officers are called
to do their inmate transports
and state maintenance works
provide their upkeep. Got to do
it seven percent cheaper than
the state, you kno\:. How\ can
\ e do that'? Let the state boys
do it, of course. Wait a
minute...Then \\c're not really5
saving... Shh, it's a shell
game. it looks good on paper.
Sincerely.
Sgt. T. Rice

The politicians have decided
though in tfiese harsh
economic times to make state

Pennington receives state veterinarian award


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Longtime area %eterinarian
Dr. James Pennington \as
presented with the Florida
*Veterinary Medical
Association's Distinguished
Service Award in recognition
of his 35 years of dedication to
the association.
The Distinguished Service
Award is presented for
exceptional achievements and
contributions by an association
member toward the
advancement of veterinarian
medicine and the profession
itself.
Pennington, a longtime area
veterinarian who currently


operates the Fuller Veterinary
Clinic in Melrose, working on
a part-time basis, said it w\vas an
honor to receive such an award
that the association doesn't
present ever) year.
"It's very humbling to think
that )our colleagues and peers
think that much of you to
award that to you," he said.
"You're a little surprised
initially, but when you think
about it, it's just very
humbling. I'm in company
with a lot of really great
veterinarians."
Pennington, who once
owned Town and Country
Veterinary Clinic in Starke,
said he is limited in what he


can do no\w and physically
unable to work long hours,
describing himself as 97-
percent retired. However, he
can't ever see himself totally
leaving behind what has been
his life for more than 40 years.
"I need a place just to hang
my hat," said Pennington, who
lives in Melrose with his wife,
Kathryn. "To me, it would be
sad to think I'm never going to
treat a patient again. That's
just not in my nature."
Whether it's simply popping
into the office to pay some
bills, see an occasional patient
or just visit, Pennington enjoys
being around a profession that
he dreamed of entering into as

a child growing up on a farm
in Hamilton County.

From farm to college
He may have roots in this
area because of his longtime
service here, but Pennington's
roots run even deeper in
Hamilton County. He is a
sixth-generation member of his
family to grow up there.
"My ancestors came to
Florida with Andrew Jackson
to fight Indians," Pennington
said. "That was the volunteer
army, if you want to call it
that. Spain owned Florida at
the time. They didn't get paid,
but they gave them a land
grant. That's how we got to
Hamilton County.
"We've been there ever
since."
Pennington grew up around
animals. He said there were
never a lot of any one
particular animal on the family
farm, but there was a variety,
including mules, cattle, dogs
and cats. He remembered
wanting a horse, which he
finally got when he was in 10"1'
grade.
"Imade a deal with a fellow
who was in the service,"
Pennington said. "He was
going overseas, and he was
looking for someone, to keep
two horses. He said if I kept
one for a year-mayb'e it was
two years-I could keep the
other one. That's how I got my
first horse."
Pennington doesn't
remember when exactly' he
decided he wanted to be a
veterinarian, but knows for
sure it was early in his life.
Though he had his mind made
up, he almost got a little extra
motivation from his father,
whom he remembered telling
somebody, 'Well, he wants to
be a veterinarian, but he's
probably just going to farm.'

Dr. James Pennington

"In a way, that was like a
challenge," Pennington said.
The family did not have a lot
of money-which \was one
reason \why Pennington did not
want to farm for a living-so
Pennington attended the junior
college in Madison, enrolling
in 1961-twvo years after the
college opened.
"To be honest with you, I
didn't know until probably txo
weeks before that I was going
to get to go," Pennington said.
"I went over there. I got a job
pretty quick. I footed the bill.,
"I worked for an agronomist,
I remember. I used to get up in
the mornings and spray
flowers until I 'had to go to
class. I'd get out of class, and
go spray flowers some more."
After junior college,
Pennington enrolled at the
University of Florida. The
father of the mail whom .
Pennington worked for while
attending school- i Madison
was a professor of agriculture
at UF. Through him,
Pennington got a job in the
sw\\ine unit.
"I delivered a zillion pigs
.during that time," Pennington

said. "I worked at the s\wine
unit about 25 hours a week,
went to school the rest of the
time and counted pennies,
because it was tight."
The University of Florida
did not have a school of
veterinarian medicine at the
time. Pennington could fulfill
his pre-vet requirements there,
though.
He never planned to
graduate from UF, hoping to
transfer to Auburn University
and enroll in that school's
veterinarian program.
"At the end of my junior
year at Florida, I w\as the first
alternate on getting into
Auburn," Pennington said. "I
did not get accepted, so I \went
back (to UF) and got my
bachelor's in animal science at
the College of Agriculture."
Pennington did get to
Auburn eventually, supporting
himself and paying for school
by -first working at a
convenience store and then as
a cotton scout through
Alabama's extension service.
He did borrow some money
through a National -Defense
loan, but for the most part,
covered his expenses through
working.
"Back in those days, you
could actually work your way
through school," Pennington
said. "If you wanted it bad
enough, you could do it."
While in school, Pennington
enrolled in the Army's early-
commissioning program. The
U.S. was involved in Vietnam,
and Pennington knew several
veterinarians who had been
drafted. He didn't want to get
out of school, start work, get
drafted and have to leave his
job.
"I actually joined the Army
when I was a sophomore in
veterinarian school,"
Pennington said.
Pennington graduated from
.veterinarian school in 1969,
then went on active duty in the
Army. When he got out of the
Army, he went to Gainesville
to join a former classmate who
was working at Gainesville
Animal Hospital. After two-
and-a-half years there,
Pennington left and eventually
started a practice he believes
was unique in Florida at the
ti me.

Career on the move
Gainesville had several-
animal hospitals at the time, as
you would imagine, but many
of the small towns surrounding
Gainesville did not.

UC football 'leaders' aim for


more than wins on the field


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
It's one thing to help lead
your team to a win, but some
members of the Union County
High School football team are
being asked to help lead the
STigers in making a positive
difference in their school and
in their community.
A leadership team of 11
players-voted on by their
fellow teammates-has been
established with the intent of
teaching those leaders seven
Score values and to help make
decisions regarding the
football program.
Ultimately, the roles those
on the leadership team assume
should not only help the
football team be more of a
team, but help it make an
impact in the community.
Head coach Ronny Pruitt said
players are changing their
mindsets from thinking about
what's best for them as
individuals to thinking about
what's best for those around
them.
"It has the kids thinking in a
different frame of mind,"
Pruitt said.
The leadership team recently


completed a project in which
more than 1,500 cans of food
Were collected to support the
local food pantry as well as
tornado victims in Alabama.
Students, teachers and parents
all donated toward the project,
while food was also collected
at the middle school and high
school spring football games.
Pruitt said it was one of the
leadership team members who
came up with the idea of free
admission to the games in
exchange for a can of food.
It was also a player who
suggested some of the food
collected be donated to people
in Alabama. That was in
response to the amount of food
collected, which surpassed the
the intended goal by
approximately 1,000 cans.
Members of the leadership
team are rising seniors Caleb
Dukes, Austin Harden, Kaleb
Green, Cory Hauk and
Raymond Randolph, rising
juniors Carl Alexander,
Chandler Mann and Kevin
Thornton, and rising
sophomores Austin Dukes,
Geordyn Green and Andrew
Jones.


Pruitt credited assistant
coach Joe Lipsey with working
with leadership team members
and helping to instill the
following core values: self-
discipline, togetherness,
respect, integrity,
perseverence, elevation and
service.
Lipsey said it's a program
that has worked well at other
schools.
"We just felt like it was the
best thing for us to do," Lipsey
said.
Leadership team members
have the chance to weigh in on
team issues, ranging from
disciplinary action to
something as simple as
deciding where the football
team will eat following a
game.
"It kind of gives them
ownership of what we're
trying to accomplish (as
coaches)," Pruitt said.
It is hoped that leadership
team members will help keep
their teammates in line-to
ensure they abide by team
rules. As Pruitt said, the
coaches can't be everywhere,

Pennington served those
towns-Starke, Lake Butler,
Alachua, Archer and High
Springs-with a mobile unit
that had Shores Animal
Hospital in Gainesville as its
home base for hospitalizations
and emergencies.
A mobile service wasn't a
rare business model for other
veterinarians at the time, but it
was rare for this state,
Pennington said.
"When I did that, I was
probably the first one in the
state of Florida," he said. "I'm
not positive of that, but I feel
pretty sure that I was. It was
just a real rare model to work
with, but it just seemed natural
to me. Gainesville had five
veterinarian clinics, and all
these surrounding towns didn't
have anything. People had to
haul their animals back and'
forth."
The idea came about when
Pennington was looking
through the want-ads in a
national veterinarian
publication. He saw an
advertisement for a
Winnebago a man in Wisonsin
had for sale. It was equipped
with two.cages and an exam
table.
Pennington couldn't afford
to build a building to open his
own practice, so buying the
Winnebago for $9,500 seemed
a good way to go. He obtained
a loan from a bank, flew to
Wisconsin, bought the
Winnebago and drove it to
Florida.
,"I was in business,"
Pennington said.
Business was slow at first,
but by keeping regular hours
on specific days in each city,
Pennington built up a clientele.
"By the time I quit, I had a
:pretty good business going,"
he said. "The problem with
that sort of a situation is what
you had was depreciating.
You're not building up any
:equity, whereas if you had a
fixed facility, you build up
equity, and you have
something to sell down the
road:
"A Winnebago, when it
.wears out, you try to replace it.
There's nothing to sell."

.come with it
:When it came time to quit
;8and open a permanent practice,
:Pennington bought property in
:Starke, since that city tended to
.provide the most business for
:his mobile service. That was
the birth of Town and Country
-Veterinary Clinic, which
.:provided quite a different feel
"than that of operating out of a
.Winnegago.
"It was a great feeling to
..have two exam rooms, a
kennel, a surgery (room) and
.room to move around,"
YPennington said. "It felt like
you had arrived."
Starke or any one of the
cities he traveled to as part of
'his mobile service would've.
been a good place to establish
-permanent roots. Pennington
did not want to stray far from
-his rural, small-town roots.
'.As a small-town
veterinarian, Pennington
worked with a variety of
,animals large and small.
"We did whatever walked in
the door," he said. "I've
Worked on different things,
from most all of the farm
animals to dogs, cats and
ferrets." :
It didn't end there.
Pennington recalled giving a
pill to a snake once as well as
having some unique
experiences at a zoo at Camp
Kulaqua in High Springs...
"I declawed some bear cubs
for them," he said. "They had
an old lion that had liver
failure that I worked with for a
whilel. They had a young
lioness that somebody had as a
pet that got to where they
couldn't keep her. I used to
vaccinate her. They had
monkeys.
:"You name it, and I've done
it."
Pennington, while working
ii Gainesville, saw exotic
reptiles that belonged to
college students. He once
treated a big rat that had a


tumor. It belonged to a college
student who kept it from a
biology course.
.He wrote a health certificate
for a camel one time and
spayed a hedgehog another. He
spayed a raccoon for a woman,
though that was not the
original intent.
-"A girl brought in a coon
and wanted me to neuter him
because male coons get kind of
vicious later on (in life),"
Pennington said. "When we
finally got him asleep, I looked
and said, 'Whoa, this isn't a
male. It's a female.'"

As you might imagine,
smaller animals such as dogs
and cats are the easiest to,work
with because they can be
picked up and positioned on an
exam or operating table.
"The most difficult to work
on is a horse because of its
size," Pennington said.
"Trying to put a horse under
anaesthetic is a major ordeal."
One animal Pennington
would just as soon have
nothing to do with is a skunk.
When people have asked him
about descenting a skunk, he
has jokingly told them, "Yeah,
I'll descent your skunk for $1
million." The resulting smell
of the 'procedure has quite the
lingering effect.
"One of my associates
descented a skunk one time,"
Pennington said. "He did it


outside in a barn, but he
couldn't go (back) in there for
a week. It was so foul.
"I remember one time we
were in school, and they
descented a skunk. (The scent)
got into the air-conditioner
vents, and we just about had to
evacuate the building."

Leave and return
Skunks or no skunks,
Pennington was doing just
what he set out to do in life-.
However, his own health
intervened and eventually led
to him selling his practice in
Starke to Dr. Joel Sailor in
1999. Pennington was
diagnosed with non-Hodgkin
lymphoma in 1998 and
underwent 59 doses of
radiation to combat it.
"It about killed me," he said.


"For all of '98, I was pretty
sick. In the spring of '99,
(Sailor) offered to buy (Town
and Country). It was kind of
like, 'Where do I sign?"'
Pennington recalled how he
drove to Gainesville every
morning to begin a radiation
session at 8 a.m. He would
drive back to Starke afterward
and go to his office.
Later during his treatment,
he drove to Gainesville twice a
day.
"I would see a few patients,
but I just didn't have the
energy," Pennington said,
adding, "I remember laying on
the floor in the office
sometimes for half an hour,
and then getting up and going
to spay a dog."
At the time, Pennington said
he just needed to get out.
Eventually, though, he
admitted he got bored, so he
returned to work part-time
with a friend of his, Dr. Len
Fuller, who had his own
practice in Melrose. Fuller got
sick shortly after and died. His
family asked Pennington if he
would keep the clinic open.
"I told them as long as, it was
part time, it was fine," he said.
"I worked there about 20 hours
a week. I ran it for 10 years."
Health issues again surfaced
for Pennington, who had to
have a heart valve replaced in
2009 as a result of all the
radiation his body was
subjected to. He decided it was
time to quit.
A woman who used to work
for Pennington-Dr. Veronica
Patricia "Trish" Ray-
approached him last October
.about running the clinic. He let
her, but he still pops in.
"I just go in and make sure
the bills get paid," Pennington
said. "I see a patient every now
and then. If Ihave a client that
wants to see me, I try to make
arrangements, but I probably
don't see half a dozen patients
a month."


Pennington prepares for surgery in the 1970s. He
operated a mobile clinic that traveled to Starke, Lake
Butler, Alachua, Archer and High Springs before
opening Town and Country Veterinary Clinic in Starke.

the Gainesville Sun.


Seeing even a small number
of patients, though, is
fulfilling, which 'is why
Pennington said he can't ever
imagine himself quitting
altogether.
"To me, it would be sad to
think I'm never going to treat a
patient again," he said. "That's
just not in my nature."
His nature compels him to
be a dedicated servant of the
profession of veterinarian
medicine and of the Florida
Veterinary Medical
Association. Some of
Pennington's roles within the
Florida Veterinary Medical
Association include chairman
of the membership committee
for 17 years, District 2
representative of the executive
board from 1993 to 1998 and
president in 2002. He helped
start the association's Industry
Advisory Council, served on
the- long-range planning
committee and was the senior
veterinary consultant through


Aug.2010.
Pennington also served on
the University of Florida
Veterinary School Hospital
Advisory Committee and the
College Advisory Committee,
and was appointed to the
Florida Animal Friends to read
and grade grant applications
for sterilization of pets in
nonprofit organizations.
"His tireless effort to
promote our profession, as
well as the FVMA, is highly
commendable," said Dr. E.
Howard Acree, one of several
people wiho nominated
Pennington for the Florida
Veterinary Medical
Association's distinguished
service award. "Dr.
Pennington drives more than
60 miles one way to our local
meeting (the Jacksonville
Veterinary Medical Society).
With all he has accomplished
and served, if anyone deserves
this award, it's Dr.
Pennington."

Cravey to play softball at Pasco-Hernando LEADERS
Continued from Page 2C


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
An-April 26 loss to Bolles in
the regional playoffs very well
could've been Chelsea
Cravey's last softball game,
but the Keystone Heights High
School graduate believes she
has found the perfect school
that will allow her to play and
place a desired emphasis on
academics.
Cravey, who signed a letter-
of-intent to play at Pasco-
Hernando Community College
in New Port Richey, admitted
she wasn't sure if she would
play at the collegiate level. She
wanted nothing to interfere
.with her academics.
Pasco-Hernando has time set
aside for' studying before
practices, so Cravey, who
plans to study physical
therapy, said it was a good
situation to keep playing.
"It is definitely a blessing
and a good opportunity," she
said.
Cravey, who played first
base for Keystone, will also be
playing alongside one of her
best friends. Pitcher Stefanie
Jones, a recent Bradford High
School graduate, also accepted
a scholarship and will be an
incoming freshman along with
Cravey.
"That's definitely a
blessing," Cravey said. "We
had planned on going to school
together."
Keystone head coach Jessica
Marquart said it's certainly a
plus to go to college with-and
play alongside-someone you
know well..
,"To be able to play with
somebody you grew up with is
a pretty neat thing," Marquart
said. "I'm happy for both of
them."
Though Cravey and Jones
played against each other at
the high school level, they
were teammates on a travel
team.
"We had fun either way-
playing with each! other or
playing against each other,"
Cravey said. "It's going to be
exciting to be able to play
together again now."
Marquart said the key for
Cravey now is to keep putting
forth the effort to become the
best player she can be as she
prepares to make the transition


so it's kind of up to the players
to police themselves.
Pruitt said there has already
been one incident in which a
player was mouthing off to a
teacher. A teammate
approached the player and
said, "It is what it is," a motto
that helps the players learn
they can't always control what
happens in life, but they can
control how they react to a
situation. In essence, the player
was being by his teammate to
sit down and be quiet.
The player in question was a
bit of a troublemaker and close
to being kicked off the team,
Pruitt admitted. However, the
player in question has
undergone a "tremendous"
transformation in the last two
months, Pruitt said.
Hopefully, what the creation
of the leadership team will

from playing in high school to
playing in college.
"She just needs to work
hard, go to practice and maybe
put in some extra time when
they're not practicing,"
Marquart said. "It's a little
more fast-paced in college, so
she just needs to keep working
hard, never give up and know
that she has the confidence that
she can do it," Marquart said.
In essence, Cravey needs to
continue doing what she did at
Keystone, which helped her
become a leader that the
coaches will miss, Marquart
said.
"She never really had a bad
attitude and always worked
hard," Marquart said. "She was
very coachable. She listened
and wanted to do good."
Cravey, who was Keystone's
second-leading hitter of
doubles this past season with
six, said she'd like to continue
playing first base at Pasco-
Hernando, but added, "I'm
pretty much just wherever
they're going to need me to
play."
Of the A11 players that
graduated from Pasco-
Hernando this year, nine are
moving on to four-year schools


on softball scholarships. (The
other two are continuing their
education as well, but will not
play softball.) Therefore, it
seems Cravey will have a good
opportunity to play beyond her
two years at Pasco-Hernando if
she so desires.
"I think I'm just going to see
how it goes and see if I like
playing at the college level,
and just make sure I can
handle everything," she said.
"I'd definitely like to go on."
Marquart said, "I think she
has the drive and motivation to
continue with it if that's
something that she wants to
do."
For the time being, Cravey's


focus is on Pasco-Hernando,
where she expects to
experience a number of
feelings when she steps onto
the field for the first time.
"It's going to be a bunch of
mixed emotions-kind of
nervous, but then again,
excited because the softball
field, that's my territory,"
Cravey said. "That's where I
love to be and where I feel
comfortable, too."
Marquart said it's a welcome
opportunity for a player who
worked so hard this past year.
"I think it's wonderful,"
Marquart said. "1 think she'll
do really well."

ultimately do is make it
"uncool" to rebel and "go
against the grain," Pruitt said.
As such, a lot is expected of
leadership team members.
Lipsey said they can be
removed as leaders if they face
serious issues in school,fail to
comply with team rules, use
drugs or alcohol, etc.
Pruitt, who is entering his
second year as head coach of
the Tigers, said last season's
team was composed of players
who did not work together for
a common goal. That can
affect how good a team is on
the field.
With the creation of the
leadership team, Pruitt hopes
that changes. He likes what he
has seen so far. The players
have exhibited a good attitude
and a good work ethic with a
common goal of becoming
,stronger as a team.
"These guys seem to have
that drive," Pruitt said. "They
want to get better."


Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the
richest inheritance.
