Sampson Lake water debate continues


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Representatives from the Suwan-
nee River Water Management District
came with their proposal to deal with
the Sampson Lake water control struc-
ture, but with residents divided over
what needs to be done, it was clear con-
sensus will be difficult to reach.
Jon Dinges', SRWMD's director of
water supply resource and manage-
ment, make it clear that all of the de-
cisions have not been made and that
meetings like the one held last week at
the Santa Fe College Cultural Building
were about collecting public input and
answering questions.
First, it seemed important to Dinges
and his colleagues to make one .thing
clear; Three Pipes, the former lake con-
trol structure, is a thing of the past. The
pipes are gone-all five (not three) of
them. The district replaced the former
system with the three-gated structure
under C.R. 225 in 2001.
"Maybe we can change it from Three
Pipes to Three Gates," at this point,
stressing the purpose of the meeting
was not to rehash decades of history.
Megan Wetherington, a. senior pro-
fessional engineer for the water man-
agement district, went on to explain that
the science doesn't prove the existing
gates could prevent flooding.
Flood prevention is one of the major
concerns when it comes to operating the
gates and managing water flow from
the lake, although it didn't seem many
present had experienced property dam-
age from past floodslike those resulting
from Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne in
2004 when lake levels were the second
highest in recorded history.
Wetherington showed the 54-square-
mile watershed that impacts Sampson
Lake, a large watershed particularly
when you imagine 10 inches of rain
being dumped into that area in a short
period of time.
Using a computer model, Wethtring-
ton demonstrated that opening the gates


fully at such a time would actually do
very little to prevent flooding. Real
data, such as data from Tropical Storm
Faye in 2008, supported that the lake
level rises much faster than the river
can carry it away.
How-can that be, when gates are quite
large? Actually they're quite small con-
sidering the 3,000-foot length between
the gates and the lake. Wetherington
also showed a survey of the bottom of
the channel, which revealed it is higher
at points than the bottom of the gate cul-
verts, meaning it is controlling the lake
level by slowing the flow of water and
keeping it from "rip-roaring" through
the gate culverts.
It's not just what happens upstream
that's important, Wetherington said, but
what happens downstream as well. Af-
ter five or six miles, the Sampson River
flows into the Santa Fe River. It is not
a straight channel, however. The water


flows through swampy and woody ar-
eas, she said. Even the Santa Fe "isn't a
proper river" in this area, she said. It's
braided and also flows through swampy
areas. When the water level in the Santa
Fe rises, it can back up the flow from
the Sampson River.
So argument one for replacing the
current control structure is that it
doesn't perform as everyone assumes
in the first place.
Flooding is only one concern of those
who live on the lake, however. They
don't want the lake too high, but they
don't want it too low either. A low lake
devalues properties and diminishes the
lake as a boating and recreation spot for
residents and visitors alike. There are
boat ramps that are barely usable now,
one resident complained.

Sex offender

pleads guilty

U1,nited States
Attorney Robert
E. O'Neill an-
nounced recently
that Rhymer Rhue-
bin Howell Jr., 59,
of Starke pleaded
guilty in U.S. Dis-
trict Court in Jack-
sonville to a charge
of attempted trans-
portation of child
pornography. Howell
Howell faces a
mandatory minimum sentence of at least
15 years and up to 40 years in federal
prison, a $250,000 fine and a potential
life term of supervised release. Howell
has been in custody since his arrest on
Feb. 28, 2011, by the Bradford County
Sheriff's Office.
According to court documents, How-
ell has three prior convictions for sex
offenses against children. In 1980, he
was convicted of attempted sexual bat-
teryn upon a child under the age of 11
years. In 1986, he was convicted of at-
tempted lewd and lascivious conduct
with a minor under the age of 16, and
in 1989, he was convicted of lewd and
lascivious conduct with a minor under
the age of 16.
According to court documents, de-
tectives in the Prince William County
Police Department (Virginia) received
a tip from the National Center for Miss-
ing and Exploited Children about a mi-
nor child in Virginia who was asked by
an individual in a cell phone chat room
to send naked pictures of himself to the
individual.
When interviewed, the boy stated that
he sent approximately 20 naked'pic-
tures to this individual in exchange for
$200 in prepaid phone card credit. The
individual maintained contact with the
boy by paying for additional minutes
on the boy's cell phone via pre-paid
phone cards. Subsequent investigation
by the Bradford County Sheriff's Of-
fice identified this individual as Rhym-
er Rhuebin Howell Jr.
According to court documents, on
Feb. 28, 2011, Howell made several
attempts to send images of child por-
nography using his cellular telephone
to another individual. Howell received
a text message on his cell phone from
this individual requesting "good pho-
tos." Howell attempted to send images
using the phone to this individual that
depicted, among other things, prepubes-
cent minor children engaged in sexually
explicit conduct.

Red light camera advocates Dinner theater coming to Starke


speak to Starke commission .


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD

Telegraph Editor
The Starke City Commission
with the encouragement of its
police department is revisiting
the issue of red light cameras.
The cit% had discussed the
possibility before, but at the time
there %\Nas no state legislation sup-
porting traffic cameras, and local
ordinances allowing them were
subject to challenge. The state
haas since passed the Mark Wan-
dall Traffic Safety Act, which
permits the use of so-called "traf-
fic infraction detectors."
Police Chief Jeff Johnson said
he recommended the installation
of traffic cameras if the commis-
sion wants to change how people
drive and improve safety at inter-
sections. It's something he said
he doesn't have the manpower to
do in the traditional way.
Police Capt. Barry Warren
provided local statistics, saying
of the more than-300 accidents in
the city in 2010, 25 percent were
at or influenced by red lights.
Two involved right-hand turns
into pedestrians.
It was a pro-camera meeting
Tuesday night, with most of the
discussion coming from David
Jackson of American Traffic So-
lutions, a prominent provider of
camera systems. The two goals of
a traffic camera program, he said
are to change driver behavior and
to increase policing ability with-
out draining city resources.
Jackson used video footage
from traffic cameras to show just
how dangerous red light related
crashes can be. He said the pro-
gram -is designed to prevent ac-
cidents where a vehicle travels
through a red light and collides
with another vehicle passing
through the intersection-in oth-
er words, a T-bone collision.
The- Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety validated the ef-
fectiveness of such programs, ac-
cording to Jackson, by publishing


statistics showing a 24 percent
reduction in fatal crashes.
"We alw ays like to remind each
other that there's a lot of people
celebrating birthdays because of
this technology," he said.
Jackson said there was a state-
wide study in Texas that showed
camera programs reduced right-
angle collisions by 40 percent,
and overall crashes fell 30 per-
cent, even though there was ad-
mittedly a 5 percent increase in
rear-end collisions (due to more
sudden stops). A more recent
study showed a 32 percent and 25
percent reduction in right-angle
collisions and overall crashes.
The technology is spreading,
he said. According to Jackson,
there are also'studies that show
a majority of the public supports
traffic cameras, although the mi-
nority opposing them tends to be
more vocal.
Jackson recommended trans-
parency and conservative en-
forcement as key to a successful
program. A traffic light has to be
red well before a vehicle enters
and goes through the intersection
before an infraction is declared.
Slightly passing the line and
stopping or backing up is not an
infraction.
Ultimately a police officer re-
viewing footage associated with
'each supposed infraction is mak-
ing a judgment call on whether to
issue a citation, just as he would
sitting in a patrol car observing
the intersection.
Pole 'mounted cameras cap-
ture both still and video footage.
There is no photo of the driver,
only the rear of the vehicle, and
a still photo is only taken when a
vehicle runs a red light, Jackson
said.
Drivers can challenge the de-
cision in a hearing, but before
that they will have an opportu-
nity to see what the officer has
observed. Th6e citation thby are
mailed comes with a personal
identification number that can


be entered..online. They will not
onl\ see larger versions of the
photos printed on their citations,
these %Nill be able to watch the
sideo footage of their violation*
Having seen the evidence, they
can also pay the citation at the
same website. Jackson said.
Little "was said about revenue,
but the cost of a citation resulting
from being caught by a camera-
which is technically a violation
of a local ordinance-is consid-
erably less than if one was writ-
ten a ticket under the Uniform
Traffic Code. At $158, the cam-
era citation is nearly $100 less
than a traditional ticket, and no
points are assessed against driv-
ing records.
The state has broken down
how that amount is distributed,
with cities receiving half of the
$158. The percentage received
by the camera company-which
covers the cost of installing and
maintaining the cameras, trans-
mitting information for review to
the police department and issu-
ing approved citations-is nego-
tiated between the company and
the city.
Officials say safety is the is-
sue, not revenue, but there was
recently talk of doubling and
even tripling revenue from ci-
tations during budget talks-a
difficult goal to reach without a
larger police force. As Johnson
said, he can't afford to have of-
ficers sitting at intersections. The
cameras would be active 24/7
and pay for themselves.
The commission wasn't ready
to make a decision Tuesday
night, but will workshop the is-
sue on Oct. 18 at 6 p.m. -
ATS is involved with many of
the camera programs in Florida,
but it is not the only company
around. The commission will
discuss receiving information or
proposals from competing com-
panies as well, or choose to go
with ATS by piggybacking on
the Green Cove Springs project.'


Lawtey residents losing water pressure


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A 40-year-old water tank has
finally outlived its usefulness,
but Lawtey residents are dealing
with fluctuating water pressure
until a new tank is in place.
Mayor Jimmie Scott said a leak
in the city's 6,000-gallon tank
could not be patched because of
the leak's location.
Scott said the tank had been in-
spected and the city knew it was
a problem and has been.seeking
funds to replace it.
The tank provides pressure
throughout the distribution sys-
tem, but with a leak present, the
pressure dropped and water was
spewing from the tank.
Scott said the city has bor-
rowed a temporary 1,000-galon
tank from a contractor, which is

adequate for the city's needs. In
times of high demand, residents
and businesses are experiencing
a drop in water pressure.
The replacement will cost the
city around $48,000, Scott said.
The city doesn't have the money,
but had no choice but to move
forward.
"It's really an emergency, so
we have to go ahead and order
it," Scott said.
The tank will also take eight
to 10 weeks to build. Until then,,
the city is sending out notices to
explain the situation to its water
customers. Scott said Lawtey

working with the city by adjust-
ing its showering schedule to
place less demand on the sys-
tem.

After-school program focused

on student improvement


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
A few weeks into the school
year, and the after-school pro-
gram Concerned Citizens of
Bradford County took over for
the city of Starke is at capacity.
Esther Kelly is directing the
program and she said the group
hoped to have 80 students by
year-end participating. They cur-
rently have 115 enrolled, includ-
ing students from prekindergar-
ten through the 1011 grade.
The main goal everyday Kelly
said is to help students complete
their assigned homework, but
also to assess where the students
have been struggling academical-
ly and to provide remediation.
Assessments of student
achievement have discovered
gaps in their learning. Kelly told
the school board Monday eve-
ning that in working with the
students they have found some
middle schoolers who struggle'
with multiplication.
"So, besides their homework,
-we're backing up and teaching
them their multiplication tables,"
Kelly said.
They are also working with
parents and encouraging them
to stay on top of what their kids
are learning and helping them be
'ready for spelling tests, etc.
"Some of the students we
'have are one to two years be-
hind," said Kelly, and the goal
is to work with principals and
guidance counselors to motivate
these students and put them on


the correct path.
One of the main goals for
working with high schoolers, for
example, is to improve their math
skills through the use of a com-
puterized math lab as well as the
assistance of student tutors with
experience in advanced subjects
like calculus and physics.
They also want to work close-
ly with middle-schoolers who are
failing in math through hour-long
or 90-minute sessions that focus
on reteaching missed skills.
Similarly; those who struggle
with reading will tackle literacy..
Kelly said she's been asked
how they are running the pro-
gram with no budget.
"We stepped out on faith, and
thanks be to God, we are still up
and running," she said.
The first students at in the
Concerned Citizens program-
which takes place everyday after-
school at the RJE Center on Pine
Street-were actually offered six
weeks free as an incentive to sign
up. The program continues to of-
fer the same low $10 per week
charged by the city recreation
department.
A shortage of revenue and a
need to cut the budget caused
the city commission to look for
partners who could save the city
money by taking on these re-
sponsibilities.
In addition to the efforts of
Concerned Citizens, Cassels
Christian Academy has con-
ducted enrollment for fall base-
ball and softball doing business
as the Bradford Sports Alliance


(wvww .bradfordsports.com). and
is running -its own after-school
program.
Cassels signed a lease %\ith the
city for the use of the Edwvards
Road and Thomas Street parks.
Concerned Citizens signed a
similar two-year, S1 lease for the
Reno Recreation Center at Pine
-and Florida streets, which will be
used for supplemental activities.
Kelly said the kids are in need,
and change for the better has al-
ready been observed. One teach-
er arrived shocked, Kelly said, to
find students sitting quietly and
doing their work.
"She couldn't believe there
was peace and quiet in that
class," she said. It happens, Kel-
ly. said, because of the program's
no-nonsense policy.
"No playing. No foolishness.
'We're there to help them educa-
tionally and to learn self-esteem
and discipline," she said.
When the hard work pays off,
the students come running to
show off their grades, she added,
speaking of one child who aced
his spelling test. His parents
didn't think it was possible, she
said.
Kelly thanked the school board
and superintendent for support,
including the bus that drops chil-
dren off at the RJE Center.
"We pray for your support that
we may continue to work togeth-
er to help improve these students
academically, socially and moti-
vate them to be proud students of
our Bradford County schools,"
Kelly said.

With enrollment up, district

working out class size issues


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Assistant Superintendent Lisa
Prevatt gave a preliminary report
on class size to the school board
on Monday night, discussing the
need for additional teaching posi-
tions to reduce some class sizes.
Prevatt said some class size
issues have resolved themselves
naturally by students moving.
Some have not.
There is a first-grade class-
room at Starke Elementary with
six students too many, she said,
so the district is looking for a
part-time teacher to be there and
assist with the main content ar-
eas.
The same situation exists in
kindergarten at Lawtey Commu-
nity School, where a part-time
teacher is also needed to assist.
According to Finance Director
Julee Tinsler, because the district
was in a state of declining enroll-
ment for so long, the district had
to project fewer students enrolled
this year. Based on the numbers
so far, which haven't been re-
leased, Tinsler said the district is
beating the projection.
At Southside Elementary
School, Prevatt said, the stu-
dent-teacher ratio is off in kin-


dergarten, and third grade has
fluctuated up and down. Two
additional teaching allocations
were approved by the school
board to provide for an addition-
al kindergarten teacher as well as
a part-timer for third grade. If the
third-grade numbers spike again,
that may become a full-time po-
sition, however the kindergarten
numbers are considerably over
right now, Prevatt said.
Prevatt said the middle school
is using its inclusion teachers to
meet class-size requirements,
making sure those teachers com-
plete co-teaching training so they
will be prepared to meet student
needs.
An official student count relat-
-ed to the funding the district re-
ceives will be taken in October.
Speaking of additional train-
ing, teachers have a professional
development day coming up at
the end of the month. Prevatt
said several sessions are being
offered, including differentiated
instruction, which helps teachers
understand the different learn-
ing needs of students and how to
meet them.
They may also be able to of-
fer training on formative assess-
ment, which Prevatt said involves
Learning how to informally assess


student progress on a day-to-da\
basis rather than solely relying
on periodic testing.
Board members were invited
to visit and observe the training.
which will take place on Sept.
30.

Free lunch
numbers up
Food Services Supervisor Dot-
ty Rondelli told the school board
that the number of students qual-
ifying for free lunches has risen
to new heights.
Rondelli said more than 77
percent of the students at South-
side Elementary are on free
lunches. That's a remarkable
number, even.more so because
if the school reaches 80 percent,
it will be required to offer free
breakfasts as well.
If that happens, the school is
going to have to get creative,
Rondelli said, because serving
200 breakfasts daily in under
30 minutes is already a chal-
lenge. If the 80 percent threshold
is reached, every child, not just
those in the.free lunch program,
could have a free breakfast.

SRWMD 'holding budget hearings


The Suwannee River Water
Management District Governing
Board held a first public hear-
ing Tuesday on its tentative fis-
cal year 2011-2012 budget of
$47.4 million ($47,389,589) and
mills. The tentative budget repre-
sents a 16-percent reduction over
last year's budget and the tenta-
tive millage rate reflects a 6-per-
cent reduction over last year's
millage rate.
Under the proposed millage
rate, those who own property
- with a taxable value of $100,000
will pay $41.43 in property taxes
to the district. Owners of property
with a taxable value of $150,000
.will pay $62.15 to the district.
Taxes paid tO the district fund
"numerous public services, in-
cluding protection of rivers and
i springs, water monitoring prc-
.grams, water resource develop-


ment and water supply planning.
The district will hold a final
public hearing Sept. 27 before
the budget and village rate are
adopted. The meeting will be
held at 5:30 p.m. at the district's
headquarters in Live Oak at the
corner of U.S. 90 and C.R. 49.
The final budget and millage rate
will be adopted at the Sept. 27
hearing.
The public is invited and en-
couraged to attend. For more in-
formation call 800-226-1066 or
386-362-1001.
District to distributes
funds to counties
The district paid $346,345.32
to 11 counties for payment in lieu
of taxes,
The PILT program was cre-
ated by the Florida Legislature
to help reduce the fiscal impact
to rural counties when the state


or district acquires lands. Since
land owned by the district is tax-
exempt, PILT funds offset the
loss of tax revenue when the dis-
trict purchases property for flood
control, water quality, water sup-
ply and natural resource protec-
tion.
The district will pay PILT
funds to counties until their pop-
ulations reach 150,000.
The following are totals that
each county is scheduled to re-
ceive:
Bradford: $15,093.45.
Columbia: $42,992.68.
Dixie: $24,196.21. '
Gilchrist: $44,619.14.
Hamilton: $37,943.47.
Jefferson: $9,223.41.
Lafayette: $77,306.21.
Levy: $25,108.88.
Madison: $20,464.85.
Suwannee: $30,429.59.
Taylor: $18,967.43.


City wrapping up solar project


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A grant-funded solar energy
project at the Starke Fire Rescue
Station is nearly complete.
While the project won't fully
provide all of the station's elec-
tricity, there will be a computer
station on site that shows how
much is being saved through the
added use of solar power and
-how carbon emissions are being
<'-reduced. The public will be able
to learn about the costs and how
those costs can be paid back over
tjime by installing solar genera-
:'iion.
:The fire station was chosen
because of its visibility and the
ability to give tours. The city
intends to hold an event to open
-it to the public introducing the
demonstration project.
.:Superior Solar from Long-
-wood.was chosen to install the
.solar energy system and provide
training to city employees.
The project was paid for as
:part of a $250,000 electric grant
that is also providing a number of
other things for the city, accordL
. &g to Starke Operations Man-
"ia'er Ricky Thompson.
';.'Jones Edmunds and Associ-
"aies has been hired to conduct
'I at-apping project of the city's
electric system. Thompson said


the survey includes identifying
the location, type and condition
of the city's electric poles, plus
additional information like the
type of transformer attached and
the number of buildings it feeds.
Poles will also be renumbered.
That information will be com-
puterized and when line crew-
man are dispatched to a location,
they will no before they arrive
what they are dealing with and
what they will need to correct
the problem. Thompson said this
would speed up response time
and restoration of service.
The grant will cover a the cost
of mapping a portion of the sys-
tem, at which point the city could
step in and pay to finish mapping
the entire system.
The grant will also pay for
the city to audit a predetermined
amount of commercial and in-
dustrial square footage, and so
the businesses and organizations
selected were totose that fit within
those limits.
The list includes some big us-
ers like Winn Dixie and Shands
Starke. A number of restaurants
made the list, including West-
ern Steer, Sonny's, Laredo's and
Cowboys. Several hotels and
motels are on the list, including
Best Western, and there are nurs-
ing facilities, like Bradford Ter-
race and Parkside Assisted-Liv-

WATER
Continued from page 1A

Wetherington said if the gates
are left open all the time, "then
you've got no lake." More accu-
rately, the lake would be much
like it was at the end of last year
when drought conditions caused
a record low.
* So the gates can't merely be
left open as some living down-
stream also wanting water sug-
gested, and they cannot be left
closed, since no action can be
taken that might increase future
flood potential. Operating the
gates when flooding is imminent,
however, does little to actually
prevent flooding.
Dinges said goals were collect-
ed at a similar meeting in 2009
that include maintaining the lake,
allowing lake drawdown for the
health of the habitat, minimizing
flooding and maintaining river
flow during a drought. He said
the district is focused on all of
those goals as well as a fifth one,
simplifying the system.
"Historically there's been
trouble trying to get it just right,
and that's what we want to do is
try to get it right, and we want to
work together to try to do that,"
Dinges said.


So how does the water manage-
ment district propose to change
the future? By constructing a
fixed control structure down-
stream. from the current gates
that cannot be operated. Dinges
said water would be allowed to
flow freely through the box cul-
verts under C.R. 225, but the
fixed structure would keep the
lake from dropping too low dur-
ing a drought. A controlled flow
would pass through the cement
structure and, when water levels
rise, over it as well so there is no
increase in flood risk.
The gates would also be re-
moved so there are no future
problems operating, maintaining
them or worrying about them be-
ing tampered with.
Some present were not com-
fortable with even this level of
control, preferring that there be
nothing at all regulating the flow
of the river, though this did not
sit well with lake dwellers.
There were those as well who
were concerned with what was
best for the habitat, which would
seem to be a lake whose levels
are allowed to rise and drop natu-
rally. Some said they wanted ev-
erything left in God's hands. One
citizen wanted to know why the
district would go to the expense
of replacing the structure that's


already in place.
Dinges said the existing struc-
ture may work, but asked if it was
optimal. The structure can,leak,
become blocked, be tampered
with and require repairs. Even
if the plan is to leave the gates
alone, the presence of operable
gates means someone is going to
want to operate them, he said. It
will be an ongoing maintenance
cost. In the long run, he said re-
,placing the gates with a fixed
structure should save taxpayers
money.
To say fixed structure is
somewhat misleading, as well.
The proposed structure could
be raised using extraordinary
methods like a crane. That would
occur only if necessary to draw
down the water level for the
health of the lake.
With no shortage of opinions
on what should or shouldn't be
done and no consensus, the wa-
ter management district will have
a lot to consider before the next
public meeting. Dinges said thlt
meeting would be held in a few
months once some decisions
have been made. Information at
that time will include design con-
cepts for the proposed structure.

finding resources for support.
The Centers for Disease Con-
trol estimates that more then 20
million Americans have diabetes,
although 6 million are unaware
of it. The American Diabetes As-
sociation recommends that peo-
ple with the disease strive for an
AIC (a test that measures blood
glucose levels over a two- to
three-month period)- that is less
than 7 percent.
Alarmingly, more than 50 per-
cent of diabetes patients are not
in control of the disease, even
though many think they are do-
ing a good job controlling their
blood sugar even though most
don't know what an A C test is.

Howell then attempted to send
several more sexually explicit im-
ages, including two pornograph-
ic depictions of the same prepu-
bescent minors. A few minutes
later, BCSO detectives arrived
at Howell's residence located at
1002 Butler Road in Starke and
made contact with him.
According to court documents,
Howell was later interviewed at
the BCSO office. During the
interview, he was shown cor-
respondence that he sent to the
minor child in Virginia. Howell
admitted that he sent the boy
a telephone card and a prepaid
Visa card and eventually adrhit-
ted that he knew that the boy was
underage, and that the boy sent
him some nude pictures. He ad-
mitted that there were pictures,
of children on his phone, and
agreed that he had an attraction
to children.
A search of Howell's cellular
phone revealed over 200 images,
mostly of little boys, and child
pornography.
Forensic analysis of Howell's
two cellular telephones revealed
that they contained over 170
images depicting child pornog-
raphy. A search of Howell's
residence revealed, among other
things, a student identification
card belonging to a minor boy
in Texas. Subsequent investiga-
tion revealed that Howell had be-
friended a minor child in Texas
via cell phone, and that the child
had sent images of minors to
Howell using a cell phone.
This case was investigated by
the Bradford County Sheriff's
Office, the Prince Wiljiam Coun-
ty (Virginia) Police Department,

"We aren't pedrfect-" said Du-
Pont Health, Safety and Environ-
mental officer David Wright last
week, "but we have been com-
mitted to making (environmen-
tal) improvements in our opera-
tions for years."
Wright has the street cred to
prove it. The DuPont Corporation
is registered as an International
Standards Organization (ISO)
14001 Environmental Manage-
ment System member. The pro-
gram requires major corpora-
tions to develop environmental
programs. And it monitors their
success.
Wright said his DuPont plant's
three goals for this year are 1)
Reduce water consumption by
at least 30 percent below its base
year, 2004. Currently the plant
is already 60 percent below its
2004 water usage. 2) Reduce
environmental deviations below
last year's level and strive to-
wards zero. 3) Reduce the energy
(fossil fuel and electricity) re-
quired to produce the company's
products.
It's not clear that everyone
else in the Lake Region can pnake
the same environmental claims-
including the environmentally
pious who have faucets in their
homes, a leaky septic tank, a
chlorinated swimming pool or are
over-fertilizing their grassy lawn
on their lake front property.
Even the city of Keystone
Heights has had trouble getting
around to having a drainage prob-
lem fixed-with runoff flowing
directly into Lake Geneva.
In 1.996, Wright said, DuPont
was permitted to draw about 5.7
million gallons of water a day
from the Floridan aquifer. They
were using about 3 million gal-
lons a day.
That was around the same time
the corporation began to take en-
vironmental concerns and con-
servation seriously. Have there
been problem'sfor the company
since then? Of course. Is the
company working them out. Ab-
solutely, Wright contends.
Today, Wrightsaid,the DuPont
plant is permitted to withdraw
about a million GPD. They're
using about 600,000 gallons.
Part of that, of course is be-
cause the Trail Ridge plant has
been downsized; it's a smaller,
more efficient mining operation
than it was 10 years ago.
"The process didn't change,"
Wright said. "Instead, we're us-
ing less fresh water from the
aquifer than we used to. We
have gotten better at withdraw-
ing some amount of water, and
reusing or recycling the water,
including in our milling opera-
tions."


Wright refers to this as "our eagle," which nests nearby.
On his computer desktop there is also a photo of a black
bear roaming DuPont land.


Part of the company's envi-
ronmental successes are also
due to the nature of the mining
DuPont actually does, at least lo-
cally. The company has mined
three minerals out of the sandy,
North Florida soil since the mid-
1940s. Its annual ilmenite pro-
duction is 109,000 tons; annual
staurolite production is 58,000
tons; and annual zircon produc-
tion is 55,000 tons.
Wright added that the three
minerals are heavy minerals and
not heavy metals. The three min-
erals are also not nutrients; the
land is as compatible to plant life
when the digging stops as it was
when it began.
"Only two to three percent of
the volume of what we mill-the
three minerals-are removed.
The rest is sand and is returned
to more or less exactly where it
had been," Wright said.
As Wright described the pro-
cess from beginning to end last
week, it went something like
this. Mine planner and geologist
Jason Woods begins the job by
studying a huge swatch of prop-
erty, from somewhere just east
of Starke, say, all the way up to
1-10.
One map on a wall in Wright's
offices shows the big area of land
mapped out with dozens and doz-
ens of small squares marked off
inside. The mining starts in the
smaller square at the top left, say,
and works its way from the.top
of the map to the bottom, moves

starts back toward the top again.
Out in the field DuPofit pre-
pares the land corresponding to
the smaller squares on. the maip.
The work begins by removing all
the trees. Then workmen push
the topsoil aside to the edge of
the square, and begin to dig into
the sand using a dredge.
Before long, the dredge hits
the water table. Soon the land

The wet mill separation equip-
ment is brought in and floats
in the pond behind the dredge.
Through a system of spirals the
heavier minerals are separated
from the lighter sand.
Some of the milling is done im-
mediately and the sand is thrown
back onto the pond's shore, the
water is returned to the pond.
As the mill and the digging
moves on to the next square of
the map, reclamation begins. The
contours of the sand in the pre-
vious square are smoothed out,
the topsoil is returned. As new
mining begins elsewhere, the re-
claimed mining area is reseeded
and silvaculture begins again.
There are a number of things
that make the process-and the
company--environmentally re-
sponsible. Not the least of those
is that DuPont even has a director
of health, safety and the environ-
ment.

three minerals DuPont mines are
also used (by other companies)
in makeup and food products as
well.
Before any mining begins,
Wright said, as required by law,
DuPont must look for and relo-
cate.any gopher tortoises on the
site. Wright does not smile, he
does not complain abpLt the pro-
cess, which could be'maddening
for many.
To do this,.before the mining
operation arrives, a knowledge-
able naturalist canvasses the un-
touched land looking for gopher
holes. The trained eye can tell a
gopher tortoise hole by its size
and shape. An expert can even
make a reasonable guess as to


whether the hole is home to: a
young or an adult gopher.
If it's an older gopher, the tun-
nel beneath the hole may go deep
and a backhoe may be called in.
The trick is to excavate without
hurting the gopher. Once found,
there are other natural things that
must also be carefully moved:
snakes, eggs, the gopher and its
natural detritus.
DuPont sometimes hosts visits
to its property to show off its en-
vironmental improvements and
its operations.

say., 'I would never have known
that this is reclaimed mining land
if you hadn't told me," Wright

Bears' appetites soar in fall, so stash your garbage


Florida black bears turn into
eating machines this time of
year, stuffing their stomachs in
preparation for winter. For glut-
tonous bears, raiding a garbage
can may be more appealing than
foraging in the woods. To reduce
human-bear conflicts during the
surge of bear activity in late sum-
mer and fall, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion urges people to keep food
sources around their homes and
businesses secure from bears.
"Due to the current, drought,
Florida black bears are starting
earlier and roaming farther this
year in pursuit of the high-calo-
rie meals that prepare them for
winter," said FWC Bear Man-
agement Program Coordinator
David Telesco. "People should
respect the fact that bears are
large, powerful wild animals. If
people secure their garbage and
other sources of food, bears will
be less tempted to hang around in
places where they don't belong."
So what exactly is food for a
bear? In the wild, black bears eat
berries, nuts, fruits and insects,
with small animals filling just 5

themselves in real-life Civil War

the hardships and victories of
war.
The annual Civil War Expo is

music and storytelling, exhib-
its, period artisans and traveling


percent of their diet. In neighbor-
hoods, bears are typically dining
on household trash, birdseed or
pet food.
"If a bear has to choose be-
tween spending a few minutes
chomping on a bag of dog food
or several hours trying to find and
eat 5,000 acorns to get the same
amount of calories, the bear is
going for the dog food," Telesco
said. "Bear-proofing your prop-
erty, however, can be as simple
as storing garbage in a garage
or shed and bringing in your pet
food and birdseed at night."
Preventing access to food is
the most important thing people
can do to keep bears wild and out
of neighborhoods. Black bears
are normally shy and afraid of
people. But bears can lose their
natural fear if they become ac-
customed to getting food from
people, and a bear's sense of
smell is so keen that it can detect
food more than a mile away. It
is illegal in Florida to leave out
food or garbage that will attract
bears and cause human-bear con-
flicts.

tary and civilian life during the

will perform music of the 1800s
throughout the day. Demonstra-

as, authentic weapons and fight-
ing tactics used in the Civil War

ing farther into bear habitat, there
are more chances people will en-
counter bears. Bears that leave
forests to seek food are more
likely to be killed: either hit by a
vehicle, shot by a resident or eu-
thanized by the FWC. If a bear is
judged to present a risk to public
safety, the FWC will euthanize
the bear.

Lawtey's 'Colonel' has had full life beyond service in 3 wars


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
During 90 years of life,
Lawtey's "colonel" has
experienced a lot-a long-
lasting marriage, raising seven
children and serving in not
one, not two, but three wars.
Bill Wilson will tell you
what he can remember and
apologize for what he cannot,
whether it's some of the
specifics of his courtship of his
wife, Muriel, or the specifics
of flying in World War II,
Korea and Vietnam. The man
known as "the colonel" to
folks in Lawtey is not much
for talking about himself
anyway-or at least not to
boast of his accomplishments..
Of the medals and awards
that don some of the walls in
the 120-plus-year house he and
Muriel live in, Bill said, "It's
something you don't brag
about, but you're proud of it."
Showing off thg
accomplishments to visitors is
Muriel's job.
"She takes them back and
shows them," Bill said. "I
don't show them. I don't want
people to think I'm a big shot."


To Muriel, though, Bill is a
bit of a "big shot."
"How many men have flown
in three wars?" she asked.
"Tell me."
It was a career that started
with a young man who wanted
to fly and ended 30 years later
with that once-young man
having achieved the rank of
colonel and serving as
commander at Patrick Air
Force Base. In between, there
were many travels and many
homes, yet nothing that could
come between a marriage that
celebrated 70 years this past
July.
Muriel, 88, can tell you why
that relationship has been a
lasting one.
"We built our lives around
ourselves," she said.
Their lives became entwined
in Jacksonville. They both
went to what was known then
as Landon High School.
Muriel said if she remembered
correctly, they began dating in
the summer of 1940.
"He was down at the
University of Florida," Muriel
recalled. "He came home for
the summer. That's when we


Bill Wilson, who served in three wars, is pictured with
many of the medals he obtained during 30 years of
service.

Bill and Muriel Wilson of I
70 years.

started dating.
Bill let it be known that it
was his intent on joining the
service-the Air Force,
specifically.
"I wanted to fly," he said. "I
wanted to be one of those
pilots-one of those fighter
pilots. I ended up being a
fighter pilot and flying P-38s."
Bill signed up for the Air
Force, and planned to
immediately leave his job at
Standard Sales, but the owner
talked him out of it.
"I told him, 'Well, I'm
quitting now. I'm getting in the
service. I signed up today. I'm
quitting.' He said, 'Don't quit
because it may be awhile
before they call you, and you
probably need the money.'
"He was right," Bill said. "I
signed up, and it was six
months before they called me
in."
Muriel said Bill told her he
was going to enlist and that he
felt they should get married
before he did so. She said she
didn't really believe that he
would enlist until he did it. It
was while Bill was waiting to
get called up that they got
married. A woman who lived
across the street from Muriel


Lawtey have been married


wanted to go to Wauchula,
where her husband was at the
time. Muriel decided to go
with her since Wauchula is not
far from Tampa, where Bill
was working at the time.
"We ran away and got
married," Muriel said. "Yes,
we did. We couldn't afford a
wedding."
Muriel's neighbor was
instructed not to tell anybody
back home, but she just
couldn't help herself.
"By the time we got up here,
everybody knew about it," Bill
.said. "They had already spread
the word."
"I said, 'Don't tell my
mother,'" Muriel recalled,
"and my mother and my sister
were waiting on us."
It was OK, though. Muriel
said her family liked Bill a lot.
"They knew we were going
to get married," Bill said, "but
they didn't know when."
From Jacksonville, the
couple eventually went west
when Bill's time to be called
into the Air Force came. He
went through training in Dos
Palos, Calif., and graduated
from P-38 school at Williams
Field in Arizona. Bill was then

part of an attachment to a
Naval unit in San Diego.
"I flew off North Island," he
said.
Bill eventually went
overseas with the 459'h Fighter
Group to take part in the
China-Burma-India Theather.
He and Muriel had been
married three years and she
was pregnant with their first
child. Bill took her back to her
family's home in Jacksonville
before going overseas.
"I had my sisters and my
family," Muriel said. "They
were all by me."
Bill may have started out
flying the twin-engine, twin-
boom P-38-which was
referred to as the "fork'-tailed
devil" by the Lufftwaffe-but
he later went to Montana to
learn how to fly the C-54. He
was to participate in airlifts to
Berlin, but he never had to go
to Germany. The day he
graduated from training to fly
the C-54 is the day the war
ended.
It was a happy day for
Muriel.


"I knew he was coming
home then," she said.
Home, though, would be a
variety of places as Bill was at
the start of a long military
career.

'Away we went'
Muriel, who had an 18-
month-old child-Del-
waiting to greet Bill as well,
said it was Bill's intent to
move on from the Air Force
after putting in his time, but
"he decided he didn't want to
get out. He came home and got
me. Away we went."
They went to Chicago, and
then to the U.S. Naval War
College in Newport, R.I.
"I went there to be an
instructor," Bill said.
There was a stop at Fort Sam
Houston in San Antonio and
then back to California to
Vandenberg Air Force Base.
"We had a wonderful time
there," Muriel remembered.
"People were so good to us."

UN Agenda 21
equals
confiscation of
property and
rights
Dear Editor:
Why are e sending
taxpayers money to support the
Marxist United Nations. which
seeks to bankrupt us and
destroy our liberty? Why are
we allowing the EPA/ICLEI to
bankrupt us, and destroy our
liberty?
Recently, a fellow co-
worker told me his church in
Clay County is being required
by the EPA to move from
current 85 feet to EPA
required 100 feet from septic
tank, replace their well. install
a chlorination system, have
EPA monitor and inspect it
monthly for fees. You've
probably heard of proposed
rules requiring rural property
owners to have their septic
tanks inspected at least yearly.
The EPA has declared the
carbon dioxide that all
humans/animals exhale as a
pollutant that must be taxed.
They've declared dust as a
pollutant that must he taxed.
All land emits dust, thus all
landowners must be taxed for
this. This is just the beginning
of the UN/EPA/ICLEI's assault
on private property owners-
farmers-transferring the
wealth from the private
property owners to the Marxist
government.
If democrats/UN supporting
"republicans" win 2012
elections, I expect we'll begin
seeing full force and effect of
Agenda 21/EPA/ICIEI
regulations. How many
"republicans" have honestly
sought to defund and withdraw


STARKE HOME
&
PATIO SHOW


from the Marxist UN? How
many "republicans" have
honestly sought to abolish the
unconstitutional EPA? How
many "republicans" have
honestly sought to abolish the
Marxism in America? How
can a real republican support
Marxism?

4H shooters
need your
support
Dear Editor:
The Aug. 25 article from
Ms. Nistler regarding our 4-H
shooters group left out an
awful lot about this great little
organization and the support of
our local friends of the NRA.
Last year through the support
of our local businesses and
dedicated individuals, this 4-H
group was able to receive
$10,000 from the Friends of
the NRA.
This contribution enabled
this group to double in size and
there is no end to what this
proud committed group is
going to do. The group has
some great volunteers and is
welcoming more. The age of
this group starts at a very early
age and these great kids are
after their parents to
participate. The 4-H members


and adult Friends ot the NRA
have started a fund raising
campaign to get additional
funds to accommodate'these
additional members. This
group wants additional
volunteers and certified
instructors. As members of this
group and Friends of the NRA
approach you for your support,
just remember, ITS ALL
ABOUT OUR KIDS.

The Wilsons also lived in

Bill was flying a C-54 in the

"While he was doing that, I

the. little boxes we had for
them," Muriel said.
The Red Crdss boxes
contained several items,

"I guess it was one of the

"All of our flying (ip
Vietnam) was at night," Bill
'said. "We were called the
'Spookies."'
Bill helped save an outfit of
Marines irl Vietnam, with the
Marines later presenting Bill
with a Noith Vietnamese
machine gun moupted onto a
plaque of appreciation.
"I was real proud to get it,"
Bill said.
Bill's military career came
to a conclusion at Patrick Air
Force Base here in Florida. It
was a six-year stint that Muriel
described as her best
experience.
"We had a huge military-
civilian group down there,"
she said. "It was great. It was

was amiss, but we were in
shock and disbelief. A little
while later we heard of the
Pentagon and the fourth plane
in Pennsylvania. Now, there
.was no mistake we were under
attack. Chief Wisniewski a
little while later camp down to
the office and informed us that
we were going on 12 hour
shifts (6 a.m.-6 p.m./6 p.m.-6
a.m.), seven days a week. I
called my wife and told her not
* to look for me till she saw me
coming down the driveway. I
wasn't sure what time I would
be home. Some time around
11:30 I walked into the MOC .
(maintenance operations
center) looking for Maj. Corey
and overheard him telling
someone that he wanted every
F-15 loaded with their
weapons and sitting on ready.
It suddenly hit me that we
were at war, and now I
understood the seriousness of
the situation.

weeks without a day off,

still seems so fresh and new in
my mind, a day that I will
never forget. Where were you

really great."
In fact, it was at a military-
civilian group function where
Bill learned of his promotion
to colonel.
"Of course we were
delighted that I got that
promotion," he said. "They
couldn't wait to tell me about
it."
Bill would serve as the base
commander at Patrick before
eventually retiring in 1973.
"They had a big celebration
(when I retired)," Bill said. "I.
said,,'Are you all glad that I'm
leaving?'"
It was then that Bill and
Muriel became full-time
residents at their home in
Lawtey-a home they had
actually owned since, the late
1950s.

A place to. retire after a
full military life
Bill was not too keen at first
when his wife told him about a
house for sale in Lawtey. It
seems he did not have fond
memories of the place during
his University of Florida days.
Muriel said Bill would catch a
ride from Jacksonville, get
dropped 'off in Lawtey and
then wait forever to get a ride
into Gainesville.
Muriel asked Bill to look at
the house but she said his
response was not just, "No,"
but, "Hell, no."
"She kept saying, 'Let's go
look. Let's go look.' Finally,
she wore me out," Bill said.
Muriel remembered the


incident with a little bit of
exasperation.
"Do you know what he did?
He went up to the drive, he
stopped the car, he looked in
and said, 'This is it.' I could've
killed him," Muriel said. "He
didn't even come in and look
at the house."


Bill said the price of the
house, built in 1883. finally
got so low that he couldn't
afford not to buy it. though he
was not aware that the price
included a lot of land around
the house.
"It looked to me like we had
bought a plantation," Bill says.
Though they were still
traveling due to Bill's military
career, they bought the house
because, in the words of
Muriel, "We had to have a
place to live, you know, with
all our kids.'"
She and the couple's
children did live in the house
off and on over the yTers
before she and Bill became
full-time residents there.
Bill said having seven
children got the family noticed
in public. Catholic priests
would approach the family to
say, "Hello,' figuring they
were surely Catholics
themselves.
Laughing about such an
incident, Bill said he would
have to respond by saying,
"Careless Protestants is what
we are."
Muriel said, "It's a good
family," and at its head is the
man known locally as simply
"the colonel."
"My name is 'Colonel,'"
Bill said. "Everybody knows
'the colonel.'"
Of course, he could just as
easily be known as the man
who served in three wars, but
Bill doesn't reflect much on
that. He heard someone
mention that fact once, then
later thought to himself, 'What
are they talking about? Was I
in three wars? Yeah, I guess I
was.'"
It's all a part of the past. Bill
admitted he missed the
military when he first retired,
but he also knew he did his

time and that it was time to
move on.
"I had done my 30 years,"
he said. "That was it."
He has now been retired
longer than he served in the
military, but the one constant
through it all was that Bill had
Muriel, and Muriel had him.
They have been the most
important part of each others'
lives for 70 years now. In fact,

.tragedy-the day our nation
saw the face of evil, and the
day that changed our nation
forever."
Carroll said the day was a
time to grieve for all those who
lost their lives that day and
who have lost their lives since
then in support of the war on
terrorism.
However, the day is also a
time to reflect upon the
response brought about by
those events 10 years ago.
Carroll talked of how the 125th
Fighter Wing of the Florida
Air National Guard-a unit her
husband, Nolan, was a member
bf-was put on alert.
"Our Air National Guard
monitored the air space of
Florida to prevent other attacks
from occurring," Carroll said.
"The Florida Air National
Guard secured our seaports,
our airports and our poweF
plants, and deployed soldiers
and airmen to defend strategic
interests across our state."
The response is what
Guardsmen trained for, and
they stepped up accordingly,
Carroll. said. During the past
10 years, more than 15,000
Florida National Guardsmen
have deployed in support of
such operations as Iraqi
'Freedom, Enduring Freedom,
-,New Dawn and Noble Eagle.
"The commitment that our
brave men and women have
shown since 9-11 to join our
armed forces, to protect and
defend our freedoms, and to
make sure this country stays
strong should be commended,
Sand should be appreciated, and
they should be honored every
day," Carroll said. "This. sort
of American fighting spirit will
help restore our country and
bring peace to many who have
never had the opportunity (to
experience it)."
Carroll said the effort of
Guardsmen and the military as
a whole was just a part of a
; nationwide response-a
response that needs to continue
to protect America and its
ideals.
k "When" terrorists struck,
Americans came together," she
said. "We helped one another,
and we loved one another. As
'Americans, we must never,
: ever forget the enemy is
relentlesss, patient and resilient.
We need to be just as resilient
"and relentless to defend our
freedom and our liberties.
"In closing, I encourage you
.,#l to stay steadfast, vigilant
.nd cQmmitted to restoring
America. Our unique American
$spirit will make this country
Successful and strong.
'"May we never forget those
who unselfishly gave the
ultimate sacrifice and their
families. We must be
committed to honoring them
by doing our part to protect
and defend our country."
One person who gave the
ultimate sacrifice after 9-11
was Spc. Robert Wise of the
Florida National Guard, who
was killed in Iraq in 2003.
Maj. Gen. Emmett Titshaw,
the adjutant general of Florida,
shared some comments Wise's
mother, Tammy Wise
Thrasher, once made in regard
to a bumper sticker on her
son's car that quoted Daniel

Webster: "God grants liberty
only to those who love it and
are always ready to defend it."
Thrasher said the words were
what her son believed in and
why he served his country.
According to Titshaw,
Thrasher said, "As long as men
and women cdhtinue to serve
this country, my son continues
to serve. As long as we
continue to love him and
remember him, he continues to
live and to love because there
is a part of him in all of us."
"May God bless patriots like
Spc. Wise," Titshaw said.
"May we always hold his
memory and the memory of
our fallen close to our hearts."
Titshaw, prior to introducing
Carroll as the event's keynote
speaker, shared his views on 9-
11, saying those in attendance
at the Blanding observance
were not soldiers, airmen or
even an adjutant general or
lieutenant governor.
"No, we gather here today as
unified Americans,
remembering, acknowledging
and honoring those nearly
3,000 lives lost-civilians in
the twin towers, passengers
and crew aboard four hijacke-d
aircraft, our service members
in the Pentagon and first
responders who ran toward
harm's way-yes, all the
precious lives that were ended
on that clear September day in
2001,
"Many look upon ,those
events of Sept. 11 as a tragedy,
but I believe a tragedy is when
an act of nature destroys a
home or a car accident ends a
life unexpectedly or a child is
diagnosed with a severe
illness. Yes, those are
tragedies. The events and
attacks of Sept. 11 were an
atrocity committed by evil men
against mostly innocent
civilians."

Baldwin's Dave Willard,

In response, thousands of
men and women volunteered
their service to the country,
Titshaw said. He referred to
the 18 stones that had been set
near the Global War on
Terrorism monument at the
Camp Blanding Memorial
Park. Each stone represents a
Florida National Guardsman
who died in service since 9-11.
"In front of you stand 18
stones that represent 18

devotion-devotion to a

and devotion to fellow
comrades," Titshaw said. "We

commander, recounted the
events of Sept. 11, 2001,
starting with hijacked
American Airlines Flight 11
crashing into the north tower
of the World Trade Center.
"I was standing a few
hundred yards away from here
on our parade field, preparing
the field for an adjutant
general change of command
scheduled a couple of months
later," Jarriel said. "As we
discussed where to place seats,
podiums and flags, the world
changed."
Jarriel continued with the
timeline. At 9:03 a.m.,
hijacked United Airlines Flight
175 crashed into the south
tower of the World Trade
Center. President George W.
Bush, reading to students at a
Sarasota school at the time,
addresses the nation at 9:30.
At 9:37 a.m., hijacked
American Airlines Flight 77
crashes into the E-ring of the
Pentagon. At 9:40, the Federal
Aviation Administration shuts
down every airport in the
country for the first time ever.
"All across America, work
stopped, school lessons ceased
and normalcy ended," Jarriel
said. "America stood silently,
staring in disbelief at television
screens."
At 9:59 a.m., after burning
for 56 minutes, the south tower
of the World Trade Center


collapses. At 10:03, hijacked
United Airlines Flight 93
crashes into a field in Somerset
County, Penn.
"Forty-five brave passengers
struggled with the terrorist
hijackers to force the plane
down before it could reach its
target in the nation's Capitol,"
Jarriel said.
The burning section of the
Pentagon collapsed at 10:15
a.m. with 184 Americans in
the wreckage. At 10:28, the
north tower of the World
Trade Center collapsed.
"We gather here today to
honor the memory of those
who gave their lives that day
on Sept. 11, 2001-2,753
victims who died in the attacks
on the World Trade Center,
184 who died in the attack on
the Pentagon and 45 who lost
their lives in Pennsylvania,"
Jarriel said. "Also, we gather

Jarriel closed his speech by
saying, "We gather here today
because we will never forget."
Representative Cliff Steams
.and senators Bill Nelson and
Marco Rubio expressed their
thoughts in the forms of letters
read by aides who attended the
event. The overall sentiment
was, of course, one, of
remembrance, with Nelson's
letter, as read by Katie Ross,
concluding with: "President
Kennedy once said a nation
reveals itself not only by the
men it produces, but also by
the men it honors, the men it
remembers. So let us always
honor and remember the
victims of 9-11."

Tornadoes get 'frustrating'


blowout win to improve to 2-0


BY KEVIN MILLER
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor
It may have been the most
S.agonizing blowout win in
recent Tornado history, or at
least near the top.
It was definitely a tough
night for Head Coach Derek
Chipoletti as he watched his
undefeated squad methodically
-'dismantle the Hawthorne
"Hornets 57-14 last Friday
night, but in the process rack
,up more than 240 yards in
penalties on 22 flags during
the game.
"That's definitely the most
frustrating blowout win I've
ever been a part of," Chipoletti
said. "All the penalties were an
embarrassment, and they'll
(the team) be running come
Monday. They'll be hating me,
I promise." ,
Making it more frustrating
for the fans in attendance,
Hawthorne was called for 13
infractions totaling, 121 yards,
making the game drag on for
what seemed hours, especially
the third quarter, when a
!numbing 17 flags were thrown
on seemingly every other play.
Aside from the penalties, the
.Tornadoes (2-0) played well
on both sides of the ball.
The offense racked up more
than 450 yards with a balanced
attack. The team rushed for
247 yards on 32 attempts, led


by seniors Dexter Clayton-
107 yards on 12 carries-and
Isaiah Jamison-64 yards on
nine carries.
Junior quarterback Austin
Chipoletti also rushed for 45
yards on six carries, and
passed for 140 yards and two
touchdowns on 14-of-21
attempts. Backup quarterback
RJ. Buxton replaced
Chipoletti in the fourth and
completed 5-of-5 passes for 67
yards.
On the receiving end,
Brandon Thomas caught two
passes for 53 yards, including
a 26-yard touchdown. Deantr6
Burch caught .five passes for
46 yards, Demtrius Martin had
two catches for 35 yards-
including one for a
touchdown-and Jamison had
three catches for 21 yards.
Defensively, the Tornadoes
held the smaller but quick
Hornets (0-2) to a net 87 yards
of offense, including any eye-
opehning minus-36 yards
rushing on 24 carries. Take
away a meaningless 63-yard
pass play in the final seconds
of the game, and the Hornets
would have only mustered 24
yards of offense the entire
game.
Bradford scored its first
touchdown of the game
midway through the first
quarter after punter- Devin


Paulk pinned the Hornets back
at their 5-yard line with a
precision-like corner kick.
After a three-and-out series
for the Hornet offense, their
punter shanked the kick and
gave the Tornado offense great
field position at the Hawthorne
32. On the following play,
Clayton had one of his best
runs of the night, breaking
several tackles 10 yards into
the run, then stumbling out of
a pack of defenders for another
9 yards to the Hornet 13.
Chipoletti then faked a handoff
to Clayton and scampered
around the end untouched for
the score on the next play.
Tornado defenders Tr6
Edmond, Wyatt Manning and
Brent Kebby helped the
Hornets go backward on their
next possession, pushing them
back 20 yards and forcing
another short punt that gave
Bradford the ball close to
midfield. Six plays later,
Clayton broke a tackle at the
line and ran it in from the 9 for
a 13-0 lead near the end of the
first quarter.
The Tornado defense picked
off its first of five interceptions
on the night on the Hornets'
next possession when Brian
Blackshear snared an errant
pass at the Hawthorne 44. His
35-yard return was negated by

Quarterback Austin Harden,
despite attempting just seven
passes, threw for three
touchdowns, while the defense
held the host team scoreless
until the fourth quarter of a
game that eventually employed
a running clock as the Union
County football team defeated
Interlachen 37-14 on Sept. 9.
Dylan Clark and Walter
Mabery scored two
touchdowns apiece as the
Tigers (2-0) have won their
first two games this season by
an average of 25 points.
Aside from the fact two
Interlachen players sustained
injuries, including Corey
Masters apparently suffering a
broken leg on the opening
kickoff, Union Head Coach
Ronny Pruitt couldn't find
much fault with how the game
went.
"Other than a few of the
penalties and those injured
boys, I'm real happy with the
way things went tonight," he
said.
A 15-yard penalty hurt the
Tigers on their first offensive
series of the game, but their
second series got a kickstart
from Daquin Edwards, who
had a 35-yard run to the
Interlachen 15-yard line. The
Tigers again gave the ball to
Edwards, who ran the ball
another 13 yards to. the 2 for
first-and-goal. On the next
play, Edwards ran the ball a
third time for a touchdown
with 3:02 left in the first
quarter. The snap on the PAT
was bobbled, but Harden-the
holder-was able to run his
way into the end zone for two
for an 8-0 lead.
Linebacker Cory Houck
made consecutive tackles
behind the line of scrimmage

series, which ended with a
punt. The Tigers began a 55-
yard march to their second
score.
The first play saw the Tigers
advance to the 50. Then
Edwards carried another 10
yards to the Rams' 40. Union
eventually was faced with a
fourth-and-4 play, with Walter
Mabery breaking loose for a
32-yard run for first-and-goal
at the 8.
Penalties pushed the Tigers
back to the 15, but Union was
able to push through for a
touchdown when Harden
hooked up with Clark on a 6-
yard scoring play. The PAT by
Joaquin Lova was good,
putting Union up 15-0 at the
10:40 mark of the second
quarter.
- The Tigers got the ball back
by recovering an errant snap
by Interlachen and were helped


' during the ensuing series by a
roughing-the-passer penalty on
the Rams. The eventual result
was an 8-yard touchdown pass
from Harden to Mabery with
four minutes left in the second
quarter. A bad snap prevented
a successful PAT, but the
Tigers led by 21.
With not much time left in
the half, the Rams tried to get
serious, but a fourth-down pass
was seized from the air by the
Tigers' Prince Alexander.
Alexander took the pick from
his own 20 to the Interlachen
43, weaving through blue
uniforms with a fierce tenacity.
A penalty backed the Tigers
up to their own 37, and they
eventually punted, leaving the
score at 21-0 going into the
half.
Alexander had the Tigers on

Indians make too many errors in


21-15 overtime loss to Pirates


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
A holding penalty right off
the bat in overtime was just
another costly mistake for the
Keystone Heights football
team, which failed to score on
its possession after regulation
in a 21-15 loss to visiting
Fernandina Beach on Sept. 9.
It was a game where nothing
seemed to go right for the
Indians (1-1) in the latter
stages of the game. A fumble
at the 3:25 mark of the fourth
quarter led to Fernandina's
game-tying touchdown. A bad
snap led to a blocked field-
goal attempt with four seconds
left in regulation after the
Indians drove 69 yards to the
SFernandina 3.
Then there was the holding
.call. Keystone had the first
possession in overtime, but the
first-and-goal opportunity to
start out with at tpe 10-yard
Line became first-and-goal at
the 20. Keystone eventually
faced fourth down from there,
with Evan Harvey's pass being
intertcepted by Cody Cosper.
Three straight runs by the
-. Pirates (I-1) on their offensive
possession led to the game-
winning score-a 3-yard
touchdown run by Tai
Dunwood.
'You can't make mistakes,''
Keystone Head Coach Chuck
Dickinson said. "That's what
cost us the game."
The Indians, though, seemed
to have put themselves in good
position to win the game in
regulation. Logan Stanley
recovered a Fernandina fumble
at the Keystone 3-yard line to
stave off what seemed a likely
Pirates touchdown with 5:29 to
play. Four plays later,
Keystone gave the ball right
back to the Pirates with a
fumble of its own at the 27-
yard line.
Dunwood, who seemed to
get better as the game went on,
rushing for 71 second-half
yards on nine carries, promptly
ripped off a 20-yard run to the
7. Two plays later, Dunwood,
who finished the game with
92 yards, crossed the goal line
from 4 yards out to tie the
game at 15-all with 2:37 to
play.
Stanley came up with
another huge play for the
-Indians, blocking the
- subsequent extra-point kick.
A 26-yard kickoff return by
Holden Huggins set the
.Keystone offense up at its own
"28 with 2:28 to play, and the


Indians wasted little time
moving downfield. A delayed
handoff to Tra'Von Thomas
resulted in a gain of 11 yards.
Harvey then dropped back to
pass, pump faking -before
connecting with Huggins on a
27-yard gain to the Fernandina
34.
Running back Alex
Gonzales, who rushed for 101
yards on 19 carries, had five
straight carries to move the
Ihdians to the 3-yard line. A
time out was called with four
seconds on the clock, setting
up Stanley for a 20-yard field-
goal attempt, which was
ultimately blocked because of
the bad snap that gave Harvey
trouble placing the ball on the
tee.'
"If I had time outs, I
could've kept pounding the
ball," Dickinson said, "but we
got it to where we needed to.
We had it in the dead center of
the 'field. That's all you can
ask for-get yourself in
position to win.
"We just didn't finish the
deal."
Keystone hurt itself with
mistakes throughout the game.
The Indians went three-and-
out on their first series of the
game after a holding penalty
on a second-down play and
then followed that up with a
lost fumble after driving to the
Fernandina 29 on their second
series.
The Pirates, who got a 25-
yard field goal from Conner
Nelson to cap their first
offensive series, drove for the
game's first touchdown
following that fumble. It
wasn't a promising drive at
first, but a personal foul
penalty on Keystone on a
third-and-14 play prevented
Fernandina from going three-
and-out.
Still, the Pirates-later faced a
third-and-15 play, but
quarterback Cole Willis
hooked up with Ben Venerdi
for a 36-yard pass play to the
Keystone 25. Fullback' Jordan
Holland then went virtually
untouchded up the middle for a
touchdown at the 8:24 mark of
the second quarter. The PAT
was no good, but the Pirates
led 9-0.
A 26-yard punt return by
Chase Julius to the Fernandina
31 set the Indians up for their
first score of the night. The
drive featured an
usportsmanlike conduct
penalty on Fernandina on a
"fourth and-3 play. resulting in

a first-and-goal a mne 5.
Gonzales was dumped for a 1-
yard loss on the first-down
play, but Harvey hooked up
with Julius for a 6-yard score
on second down. Stanley's
PAT was blocked, leaving the
Indians trailing 9-6 with 1:15
left in the half.
Keystone, though, put
another score on the board
before going into the locker
room. The Pirates failed to
field a high kick that Stanley
angled toward the sideline,
with the Indians falling on the
ball at the Fernandina 32. An
l-yard reception by Gonzales
set up first down at the 21.
Harvey scored on a run from
there, eluding pressure in the
pocket and scrambling his way
across the goal line with 32
seconds remaining in the half.
A personal foul following the
play, though, tacked on 15
yards to the PAT, which was
no good. Keystone took a
three-point lead into the half.
The Pirates received the
second-half kickoff, but failed
to make the fair catch on
another high, angled kickoff.
Huggins fell on the loose ball
for the Indians, giving them a
first down at the Fernandina
32. A 15-yard scramble by
Harvey helped set Stanley up
for a 31-yard field goal that put
Keystone up 15-9 less than
four minutes into the third
quarter.
Fernandina responded by
driving from its own 18 to the
Keystone 11. Holland had six
carries for 58 yards up to that
point, but a holding penalty
and two fumbles backed the
Pirates up to the 23. A 40-yard
field-goal attempt was no good
with 2:22 to. play in the third
quarter.
Holland, who led all rushers
with 147 yards on 22 carries,
helped put the Pirates into
scoring position again before
the fumble that was recovered
by the Indians' Stanley at the
Keystone 3.
An inability to hold onto the
ball themselves, though, cost
the Indians in what Dickinson
said was a good performance
overall against a bigger team.
"It was a very physical
game," Dickinson said.
"Sizewise, we were outmanned .
up front, but our kids battled.
They played hard. The effort
was there. There were just too
many stupid mistakes."

a holding call on the
Tornadoes that brought the ball
back to the Hawthorne 35.
A few plays later, Chipoletti
found Thomas all alone near
the end zone for a 26-yard pass
after the Hornet defense bit on
a well-executed fake screen. A
shovel pass to Buxton for two
points made it 21-0 with 11
minutes left in the half.
Defensive back Ja'quez
Calloway got the first of his
three interceptions for the
game on the Hornets' next
possession. Defensive lineman
Lyndell Hampton helped on
the play as he hit the Hornet
quarterback hard as he was
releasing the pass, and
Calloway intercepted at the
Hornet 40.

After the interception,
Chipoletti had an 8-yard run,
then hit Kenny Dinkins on an
8-yard pass to move the ball to
the 19. Martin would then
score on two consecutive
plays, with the first-a 19-yard
run-called back due to the
ever-present yellow flag. From
the 14, Martin would score on
a pass from Chipoletti to make
it 28-0 in the first half.
The third quarter, as:
mentioned previously, was
filled with penalties, which
slowed down the Tornado
offense.
Hawthorne finally got on the
board after a punt return from
midfield to the 41 was aided
by a personal foul call on the'
Tornadoes, giving the Hornets
the ball at the 26. Several plays
later, the Hornets scored on a
halfback pass, then converted
the two-point attempt to make
it 28-8 with eight minutes left
in the quarter.
Starting from their own 8
several possessions later, the
Tornadoes went the length of
' the field for their only score in
the third quarter. Jamison had
several long runs on the
drive-one for 26 yards and
another for 10-while Burch
had two receptions for 16 and
8 yards. Jamison scored from
the 2, and Buxton scored on
the two-point conversion on
another shovel pass from
Chipoletti to make it 36-8.
Buxton quarterbacked the
Tornadoes to their next two
scores, sandwiched around a
99-yard kick return for a score
by the Hornets.
Bradford went up 43-8 after
Calloway made another
interception at the Hawthorne
38. Several passes from
Buxton to Jamison moved the
ball to the 13 before freshman
Carlos Grissett carried it in for
the score.
After the Hawthorne 99-yard
return cut the lead to 43-14,
the Hornets tried an onside
kick that went only 2 yards,
giving the Tornadoes the ball
at the 42."
Buxton's 25-yard pass over
the middle to Marco Grimsley
set Jamison up for his second
touchdown of the night-a 7-
yard run up the middle that
pushed the score to 50-14 with
five minutes left in the game.
Paulk would end the
Tornadoes' scoring for the
night several plays later,
intercepting a pass that was
tipped by Calloway and
returning it 34 yards for the
touchdown and the final score
of 57-14.
The Tornadoes return to
Starke this Friday, Sept. 16, to
take on the Hamilton County
Trojans at 7:30 p.m.

the run when play resumed in
the second half. He had a 7-
yard carry on the first play
from scrimmage after Union
received the second half
kickoff. The team then handed
the young man the ball again,
and this time he ran straight


through the middle of
Interlachen's defensive
formation, picking up it
sensational first down on the
Rams' 41-yard line.
The Tigers then relied p
Harden, who finished 74-of-7
for 4Tyards, to get them to the
15 before Josh Tyson strolled
into the end zone for another
touchdown. Lova's ensuing
kick was good, bringing the
score to 28-0. ;
Interlachen, determined to
score, handed the ball off to
Raphael Minter, who dashed
past the Tigers all the way to
the Union 44-yard line,
-capping a 27-yard run. A pass
on the next play came up short,
followed by another handoff to
Minter, but this time he was
taken down by Kendall
Wright. An attempted pass was
broken up by Princeton
Alexander before Minter, on
fourth down, was again
stopped for a short gain by the
Tigers, who took control after
the turnover on downs.
The Tigers were forced to
punt, but the punt was a 52-
yarder by Houck that pinned
the Rams at their own 5. That
set the stage for Houck's sack
in the end zone for a safety,
which put the Tigers up 30-0.
The ball went back to Union
on the free kick, and the Tigers
bared their fangs. Edwards had
carries of 8 and 7 yards,
followed by a 10-yard run by
Mabery. A penalty backed
Union up, but Harden
responded by tossing his
second touchdown to Clark,
this time from 25 yards out.
Lova's kick was solid,
meaning the Tigers had
widened their lead to an all but
untouchable 37 points.
For a team that couldn't
make PATs, last season and
struggled in the season-opener
against Fernandina, it was
good to see Lova settle into the
role of placekicker after
joining the team- just a few
days prior to the Fernandina
game.
"We have a new kicker, and
those extra points are a big
help to us," Pruitt, said.
The Rams (0-2) were able to
avoid the shutout with two
touchdowns in the fourth
quarter, the second of which
came with 33 seconds to play.
Union finished the game
with 301 yards on the ground,
led by Tyson, who had 135
yards on 11 carries. Edwards
and Alexander rushed for 75
and 64 yards, respectively,
while Mabery added 50 yards.
Mabery caught two passes
for 25 yards, while Clark
caught two for 33 yards.
The Tigers play their first
home game of the regular
season this Friday, .Sept. 16,
when they host Keystone
Heights at 7:30 p.m.

Indians serve well in win over Tornadoes


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor


Keystone Heights had little
trouble in its District 5-4A
volleyball opener, serving its
way past Bradford 3-0 (25-13,
25-6, 25-5) on Sept. 8 in
Starke.
Mackenzie Dicks and Taylor
Semione combined for 42
service points and 22 aces for
the Indians, who attempted to
go 2-0 in the district this past
Tuesday against Santa Fe.
*Leading 4-2 in the first set,
Keystone outscored Bradford
15-8, getting a couple of kills
from Meghan Zinkel and a
service ace from Madyson
Maxwell in building a 19-10
Jead. All of the Tornadoes'
points during that stretch came
as a result of side-outs with the
exception of one service ace
by Sonya Thornton.
The Indians then scored four
straight with Dicks serving,
with two points won on a
Dicks ace and a Chelsea
Harvin tip.
As in the first set, Keystone
pulled away from an early
close score, scoring 15 straight
points with Dicks serving to go
up 20-4. Dicks had two aces
,during that span, while Zinkel
had three kills.-
The set did feature another
-service ace from Bradford's
Thornton, but the Indians
closed the game out with four


service points by Zinkel.
Bradford (0-2,0-2 in District
5 prior to Sept. 13) did go up
2-0 in the third set with Ashley
Johnson serving, but a later 3-2
lead turned inter a 19-3 deficit
as Semione had 17 straight
service points for Keystone.
Nine of Semione's points were
aces.
Zinkel eventually closed out
the match for the Indians with
a kill.
Semione, besides finishing
with 17 points and nine aces,
had seven kills, while Dicks
had 25 points and 13 aces.
Zinkel and Maxwell had
nine and five kills,
respectively, while Harvin had
23 assists.
Prior to playing Bradford,
the Indians hosted Oakleaf on
Sept. 6, winning 3-0 (25-11,
25-14, 25-17). Harvin had 30
assists, 18 service points and
seven aces, while Semione had
10 kills and 12 points-four of
which were aces.
Zinkel had a team-high 14
kills to go along with six digs,
while Tara Shobris had eight
points-four of which were
aces.
The Tornadoes played
district opponent Fort White
this past Tuesday and will
travel to Alachua Thursday,
Sept. 15, to play district
opponent Santa Fe at 6:30 p.m.
