what he called a classic window attack.
He said he did not have the equipment
to enter the trailer, but extinguished the
flames from outside.
"I did basically what someone with
a garden hose would have done," he
said.
However McDavid's most valuable
contribution on the scene may have
been assisting a deputy in not allowing

"That's when people get killed,"

Confusion results from RR repair Watching those who are watching you


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

An unexpected repair at the
S.R. 100 railroad crossing in
Starke on Tuesday screwed up
traffic and the police chief's day.
Chief Jeff Johnson- who bore
the brunt of the complaints-had
some complaints of his own by
Tuesday night when he told the
city commission he was looking
for who was responsible-the
state, CSX or repair the contrac-
tor.
Johnson said he was first told


in an 8 a.m. meeting on Dec. 10
the railroad crossing would be
blocked for repairs for two and
a half hours. Even after the city
commission meeting ended that
evening, however, the crossing
was still closed.
Large truck and other traffic
was detoured to Call and Walnut
streets throughout the day where
Johnson said he could see the
brick of the downtown streets
shifting under the weight. One
truck even took down a lamppost
trying to navigate the narrow
streets.


The slowdown held up traf-
fic-including emergency vehi-
cles-and it tied up law enforce-
ment, which was busy trying to
manage the unexpected detours.
According to some informa-
tion the city received, the Florida
Department of Transportation
was unaware of the situation.
Johnson said he didn't yet know
who was responsible.
The city had not been provid-
ed information on future repairs
at other crossing that could also
impact traffic.


3 selected for manager interviews


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

After casting the net for an op-
erations manager instead of a city
manger, Starke actually pulled in
fewer'applications in spite of the
relaxed criteria, but it will go for-
ward with interviewing three of
those candidates.
The committee of Scott Rob-
ertsHarry Hatcher, John Cooper"

er Ricky Thompson reviewed the
applications last week and settled
on three names to present to the-
commission Tuesday night.
Among them was al famil-
iar name. Joe Fisher was the

end of September when budget
cuts eliminated the position. He

supervising utility crews, work-
ing in public works and recre-
ation, overseeing inmate work
crews, etc. He oversaw projects,
including grant projects, and as-
sisted with advertising for and
obtaining equipment and ser-
vices.
He also served as a reserve
police officer for the city, hav-
ing previously worked part-time
in that capacity for the village
of Biscayne Park where he was
also the public works director
for five years. Fisher has a B.A.
in political science with a minor
in criminal justice, and loads of
other training, from CPR to ve-
hicle inspection. According to
his resume, he even held a real
estate license and was one of four

Woman said she was forced to drive robbers


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal com Editor

The woman Union Count%
deputies have accused of being
a principal to the murder of a
Johnsville man claimed her co-
defendants choked her and put
a gun to her head, forcing her
to drive them to Union County
from Starke.
Amanda Lee Jeffery, 30, of
Raiford, was charged with prin-
cipal to murder, principal to ar-
son, principal to kidnapping.
principal to grand theft auto, and
principal to home invasion.
According to court papers,
Union deputies first ran across
Jeffery while she sat in a car at
Coffin Cemetery, not far from
the home of William and Connie
Couch. Deputies have charged
two Starke men in connection
with the husband's murder and


robber, of the Couch home.
According to an FDLE ar-
rest report, the 3P0-ear-old first
told deputies she Nwas'waiting at
the cemetery while her brother
worked nearby. The la% men re-
leased the Raiford woman but an
hour later learned she might has e
been involved in the crime.
In a later interview, Jeffery
told Union Sheriff's Major Garr
Sea\ and an FDLE agent that she
drove the two murder suspects
from an apartment complex in
Starke to the cemetery. Accord-
ing to Jeffery she went to the
Bradford Square Apartments
to meet with one of the men,
Michael Lynn Pierce Jr. How-
ever when she arrived to pick
up Pierce, a second man whom
she had never met before. Lavar

Victim recognized assailant who lifted mask


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

The victim of a Jan. 6 home
invasion robbery whose husband
was murdered during the crime,
told investigators she saw one of
the robbers' faces when he par-
tially lifted his mask to breathe.
According to an FDLE arrest
report, Connie Couch told in-
vestigators two bandits entered
her house and attacked both her
and her husband William Couch
while the couple's 3-year-old
daughter was also in the home.
Couch said the two men duct


taped her and her husband and
then beat the couple, demand-
ing the whereabouts of cash and
valuables. The two men finally
ransacked the house looking for
loot, then loaded the couple's
Chevrolet Equinox with two flat
screen televisions, PlayStation
games, a safe and other prop-
erty.
The surviving victim said dur-
ing the robbery, one of the two
masked men partially lifted up
his disguise to take a breath, and
she recognized him as part of a
crew that had recently worked
on her driveway, known to her


as "Rat."
Couch later identified Pierce
in a photo lineup and authorities
issued a BOLO for him.
According to the report, Pierce,
along with co-defendant Lamar
Monte Thompson, boarded the
Chevrolet and left their victims,
driving to a property in Bradford
County's Pleasant Grove neigh-
borhood where they stowed the
stolen property in a shed. They
then ditched the Equinox behind
a cemetery in the area and set
it ablaze. The pair soon found
a man in his front yard and of-
fered him money for a ride to


Starke. He agreed, and the trio
traveled to Pierce's apartment
where Thompson and Pierce
changed clothes. The three men
then headed west. However, less


Quick thinking

suspects

StarkeJournal.com Editor


It took Paul King about three
minutes to recall the name of
the man.he once knew as "Rat'"
Once he matched the moniker to
previous encounters he had with
Michael Lynn Pierce Jr., it took
him less than an hour to detain
two suspects in a Union County
murder.
King was on patrol the morn-
ing of Jan. 6 when he heard a
BOLO issued for suspects in a
Union County robbery. Soon
thereafter, his cell phone rang..
On the other end was Union
County Sheriff's Sgt. Jerry Felt-
ner. The Lake Butler lawman
briefed King on the robbery of
William and Connie Couch and
then asked the Starke officer if
he knew anyone that went by the
name of "Rat." Connie Couch
got a glimpse of one of the sus-
pects and remembered him from
a paving crew that had worked
on her driveway. She didn't
know his name but remembered
that his associates referred to him
,as "Rat" throughout the job.
SKing told Feltner that he could
pot recall a "Rat", and then ended
the phone call. About three min-
.utes later, however, the Starke
officer linked the street name to
pierce, whom he had arrested

twice before. King got Feltner
back on the phone and relayed
the suspect's identity. He then
dropped a bombshell: King knew
where Rat lived.
Feltner told King that he was
on his way to Starke. The Starke
sergeant drove to the Bradford
Square Apartments, formally
known as T.H.E. Apartments,

where Pierce lived.
Twenty minutes later a ma-
roon Oldsmobile Alero pulled up
to Pierce's residence. Rat, along
with another man, later identified
as Lavar Monte "Scrap" Thomp-
son, hopped out of the car while
the driver stayed put. A few
minutes later the two passengers
got back into the Oldsmobile and


headed back toward U.S. 301.
When the car pulled north
onto Thompson Street, the ser-
geant turned on his emergency
lights. He called in backup and
later transported the two murder
suspects to the Bradford County
Jail.

Community helps EMS deliver Christmas joy

1~~~r


On Dec. 17, members of Bradford County EMS Association IAFF Local 4315 distributed
donated toys to the pediatric patients at Shands UF. Efforts to collect donated toys
and monetary donations began in November, and extended through the day of the
distribution. With the help of Heilbron Springs Fire Department, Sampson City Fire
Department, New River Fire Department, Starke Fire-Rescue, Cassels Christian
Academy, Coffee Culture, Alachua County District Cub Scout Pack 82, Hibiscus House
Rehab and donations from the community, more than 250 toys were collected. Extra
toys collected not distributed on the 17"' were donated to Shands to be distributed
Christmas morning. In addition to toys, each patient was given a holiday card
hand decorated by the family and friends of Local 4315 members. This is the third
consecutive year that Bradford County EMS Association has collected for the patients
at Shands Children's Hospital. There are approximately 100 pediatric patients admitted
at any time. Pictured are Arielle Bernstein, Dylan Rodgers, Bill Crutchfield and Josh

A History of School Grades


School grades were first Issued In 1999 under the A+ Plan for Education. Since then, school grad-
Ing evolved In 2001 to Include the FCAT results of students In grades three-10. In 2002, student
learning gains were added to school grades, and In 2005 all students were Included in school
grades. In 2007, performance In FCAT science, the learning gains of students scoring in the lowest
25 percent In mathematics, and the performance of those retaking the FCAT were added to school
grades. In 2010, new components Including graduation rate, student performance and participa-
tion In accelerated coursework, and college readiness were added to school grades for high
schools. In 2011, the FCAT writing standard In school grades Increased from a score of 3.5 or
higher to a score of 4.0 or higher. Source: Florida Department of Education.

Finally, Clyatt said the suc-
ccssful performance of students
in accelerated programs in-
creased from 95 to 99 percent.
See the accompanying chart
for more on the points the high
school received and where it can
still approve.
Moore told administrators, fac-
ulty and staff she appreciated all
of the hard work that went into
improving the high school grade.
Former Principal Doug Thoburn
wrote the newspaper to ask that it
be pointed out the improvement
took place under his leadership,
which he said Moore "chose to
*terminate."
Thoburn said he was proud of
what students, staff and his ad-
ministrative team were able to
accomplish, including both the
higher graduation rate and school
grade.
"These academic successes

strides we were able to achieve

New sidewalk
to be built

along Pratt
Street
Work has begun to build a
sidewalk along Pratt Street in
Starke between S.R. 100 and
Myrtle Street in a project funded
through the Federal Highway
Administration and overseen by
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation.
The 5-foot wide concrete side-
walk will be built on the north
and west side of Pratt Street and
was requested by the Bradford
County Commission. The project
qualified for funding through the
federal enhancement program,
which expands transportation
choices by providing alternatives
such as sidewalks for pedestrians
or bike lanes for bicyclists.
Included in the Pratt Street
sidewalk project is an aluminum
bridge that will be installed over
the drainage ditch just south of
Parkwood Place. The sidewalk
will also feature crosswalks at
the side streets intersecting Pratt.
Street, including wheelchair-ac-
cessible ramps.
The FDOT hired CDM Con-
tracting Inc. of Lake Butler and
Freeman Design Group Inc. of
Lake City to design and con-
struct the sidewalk at a cost of
$209.890. The design firm be-
gan '\ork last October and the

It's now easier for Starke's
small-business owners to harness
the power of direct mail to drive
traffic, attract new customers and


discipline are all areas that I am
proud of," Thoburn said.
Because of all that goes into
determining the high school
grade, Moore said there are many
people who should be credited
for their contribution-too many
to name.
"I am extremely thankful for
those who have consistently,
tirelessly worked (and continue
to work) to improve our high
school students' education and
graduation rate," she said.
Earlier this year, Starke El-
ementary School was named an
A school. Southside Elementary,
Lawtey Community and Brad-
ford Middle School all earned
B's, while Hampton fell to a C.
Neighboring Keystone Heights
High School maintained its A,
Baker County High improved
from a D to a B, and Union
County High brought its C up to
aB.
High school grades are now
released separately from the
other schools because they take
longer to calculate. In 2008, the
state significantly changed the
way high schools are graded,


increase revenues That's because
the U.S. Postal Service recently
introduced Every Door Direct
Mail, a simple, low-cost service
that allows local businesses to
market to every address' in their
neighborhoods without the need
to rent mailing lists.
Every Door Direct Mail uses
mail delivery route information
instead of names and exact ad-
dresses to reach targeted groups
in specific geographic areas.
Businesses use a simple online
tool at https://eddm.usps.com/
eddm/ to identify neighborhoods
and number of households, pre-
pare mailing documentation, and
calculate postage.
To teach local businesses
about Every Door Direct Mail-
including a demonstration of the
online tool-the Starke Post Of-
fice is holding a free "Grow Your
Business Day" seminar on Jan.
20, at 7 p.m. The event will be at
the Starke Post Office.
"Direct mail. has long been a
proven advertising tool of choice
of successful large businesses and
Fortune 500 companies to pro-
mote products and drive sales,"
Said Postmaster Tom Yates. "Di-
rect mail has strengths other ad-
vertising media can't claim; it's
personal, tangible, portable (to
re-read later and share with oth-
ers), manageable and measure-
able. And with Every Door Di-


placing an equal focus on gradu-
ation rates, access to accelerated
coursework and college readi-
ness.
These days, a high school is
graded on more than just its test
scores (and the learning gains
measured), but this means they
must be accountable for more as
well.
Next year the standards for
grading high schools will get
tougher. The 2012 graduation
rate used to calculate the grade
will only include students who
receive standard diplomas. The
current rate also includes issu-
ance of special diplomas. Special
diplomas are issued to students
with physical, mental, emotional
or linguistic impairments that
prevent them from obtaining
standard diplomas.
Statewide, more schools than
ever are scoring high marks, one
reason the state keeps raising the'
bar. Seventy-eight percent of
Florida high schools earned ei-
ther an A or a B this .year, which
is seven percent higher than last
year. The number of D and F
schools fell to just 6 percent.


rect Mail, no6peiiits are needed
and there are no special fees."
According to the Direct Market-
ing Association, every $1 spent
on direct mail generates $12.57
in sales. Every Door Direct Mail
is ideal for restaurants, doctors'
offices, hair salons or any kind
of local business that is not cur-
rently using the mail. The mail
can be addressed to "Postal Cus-
tomer," "Residential Customer,"
or "PO Boxholder" and dropped
off at the Post Office.
.Every Door Direct Mail saves
mail preparation time and mon-
ey, and is delivered by the local,
trusted Postal Service carrier.
For more information about Ev-
ery Door Direct Mail, visit http://

The Postal Service receives
no tax dollars for operating ex-
penses, and relies on the sale of
postage, products and services to
fund its operations.

Faulty microwave
ignites Brooker fire
A Brooker woman returned
home from visiting a friend the
afternoon of Jan. 9 to find her mi-
crowave oven on fire. The flames
spread to engulf the kitchen of
the Elm Street house before fire-
fighters could attack the blaze.
Teri Sceals said she detected
smoke when she returned home


with her granddaughter and went
room to room looking for the
source. When she reached the
kitchen she saw smoke billowing
out of the microwave.
She added that the appliance
had not worked since she moved
into the home eight months ago
and she had recently asked a
friend to take a look at it.
New River Fire Chief Benji
Bennett said damage to the home
was largely limited to the kitch-
en. The chief added a shortage of
manpower slowed firefighters'
initial response to the blaze.

State Fire Marshal investiga-

Investigator Andy Redding said
the residence, off'C.R. 18 near

over a year and was not hooked
up to utilities. He added that
shortly before the fire was re-
ported, witnesses saw juveniles
riding ATVs in the area around
the structure.

County government payroll.
Local K-12 public education
payroll.
State government payroll.
Local government spending.
State vendor payments.
All of this information is pub-
lic record, but it hasn't always
been available with a couple of
mouse clicks.
The site is sponsored by the
Foundation for Government Ac-
countability,which refers to itself
as a "free-market think tank." It
is a nonprofit organization gov-
erned by an independent board of
directors.
Because its members believe
in personal liberty and private

and promotes free market public
policies that "achieve limited,

robust economy that will be an
engine for job creation across the


state.
The group is based in Naples.
The site it has launched to expose
what it calls excessive govern-
ment spending can be found at
%% % .floridaopengow .org.

on Monday Tarren Bragdon,
the group's CEO. said, "Flor-

Under salaries, you can do ev-

of how counties compare in their
personnel spending right down
to looking up the salaries of in-
dividual employees-from the
highest elected officials down
to the lowest paid part-timers-
and track how those salaries have
changed over time.
You can do this for state em-
ployees, county employees and
school board employees. State
personnel costs also include the
cost of benefits and overtime.
According to the website,
counties have gone from spend-
ing around $1.5 billion on sala-
ries in 1997 to nearly $6 billion
in 2011. There is also a break-
down of per capital personnel
spending by counties. Bradford
comes in 61" out of 67 counties,
spending $190 per capital on its
employees.

The same is true of the section
to track state spending, but it does
allow you to look up companies
that have done business \\ ith the
state in addition to state agencies
and other public partnerships.
The state had previously
launched its ow:n w\ebsite, Trans-

tails the state budget, provided
prepared reports and compari-
sons, and lists links to other in-
formation available on the Web.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott also
launched FloridaHasaRightto-

family-it can make the visiting
students homesick and distracts
them from their studies

With his second host family,
he got to travel some. The sec-
ond family was Brazilian-
Italian, and, he said, the food got
even better. In December, he
graduated from the local high
school and began classes at a
local college, taking biomedical
courses.


He also got a little homesick.
especially when time for Ameri-
can Than"- which the Brazilians don't cele-
brate. He was surprised that they
didn't pay a lot of attention to
Christmas either. It turned out
though. that Easter was a very
big deal, especially Carni\al. a
sort of Mardi Gras. which leads
to Lent and then Easter.
He went to Rio de Janeiro and
at the beaches he saw why Bra-
zilian women are known for
their beauty. Some of his friends
told him that he spoke Portu-
guese "like a redneck."
He continued to visit Rotary
clubs and events, exchanging
pins wherever he went. He saw
the famous Christ the Redeemer
statue; visited cathedrals includ-


ing the largest Catholic cathe-
dral in the world. (St. Peter's
Basilica at the Vatican is larger.
but it is technically not a cathe-
dral.) He went to art museums
and visited major buildings, like
train stations. He got a.c'hanc
to speak English with a girl fron
Vermont. Eventually his year
abroad \as up and it \was time to
come home.
Galbraith thanked the Ke\-
stone Heights Rotarn Club for
giving him the chance to see
another part of the world, \ which
had changed nim. These da\s.

in these articles relates to

counter this? Some of the ideas
I read about were limiting the
amount of testing allowed and
the time allowed to use the
phone. For instance, while I
was growing up, the phone
was not answered during
dinner, and no calls-
incoming or outgoing-were
allowed after 8 p.m.
A couple of articles
mentioned requiring your child
to use proper grammar and
spelling in order to be allowed
to text.
These are all things to
consider. Talk to your children

Protect those
who can't
protect
themselves
Dear Editor:
Tears of sorrow streamed
down my face as I read in horror
the story printed in the Jan. 5,
2012, edition of the Telegraph
newspaper about the little eight-
year-old girl who was molested
by a 47-year-old man. The arti--
cle went on to say that back in
August of 2011, it was reported
that this little girl had been mo-
lested by the same man but, as
the paper says, no arrest was
made, but the man was told to
move out of the house.
Who dropped the ball here?
The police for not doing more?
Or maybe DCF for not pursuing
'further? Maybe even the mother
for not believing the daughter?
One thing for sure, it wasn't the
fault of the officer who came to
my house back in August, when
I calld to report the incident.
She did all she could, since if
happened in another county. Nor
was it my fault, as the child's
great grandmother, her paternal
grandmother's, or her aunt's. All
three of us gave sworn testimo-
nies as to what the child told us.
How many other children will
have to go through this" before
the people who are supposed to
be protecting them step up to the
plate and do their very best to
*cross every t and dot every i and
never take for granted that it was
an isolated incident. Even child
deserves the best possible pro-
tection. not only from their par-
ents, but from the agencies set in
place to do so.
As a Christian, my prayer is
that all of us will be more alert
and not be afraid to do all we
can to protect the ones who can-
not protect themselves.

Dear Editor:
On Jan. 4, one of the coldest


editor@ bctelegraph.com


days we've had thus far, my 78-
\ear-old mother called and said
her heat was not working. She
said she had made it through the
night, sta) ing in bed bundled up.
I live over two hours away, and
cannot travel due to illness. I
knew I had to try and get her
some heat some how.
After numerous phone calls,
and being almost ready to give
up, it seemed no one could pro-
vide her with any heat. I decided
it was a long shot, since no one
had any money to spare, and
made a phone call to Walmart. I
spoke with Brian Jackson, man-
ager of.the Starke Walmart, and
explained what I needed.
I made a call to the Starke Po-
lice Department, explained the
situation, and the dispatcher said


an officer would call me.'When
Officer Joseph Murray Ialled, I
explained to him that my mother
had no heat and what Brian
Jackson told me needed to be
done in order to get her some
heat.
With Brian Jackson and Offi-
cer Murray working together,
Walmart donated a heater tothe
Starke Police Department. Offi-
cer Murray promptly transported
the heater to my mother aild
helped her set it up. I just walt
to thank God for the wonderjil,
caring people like Brian Jaclcn
and Officer Murray.
Sincerely.

Man jailed for

break-ins at

Powell's, Beck

Chevy, school

board
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal com Editor
'One of three men caught
while executing a one-night
crime spree was sentenced to 85
days in jail.
James Joseph Brewer, 24,
pleased no contest to two counts
of burglary, two counts of crim-
inal mischief, and one count of
petit theft. A judge also sen-
tenced him to two years proba-
tion and ordered him to pay res-
titution.
According to police reports,
the 24-year-old, along with his
brother Jeremy Brewer and
Shane Arnett walked to Starke
from Canon's Mobile Home
Park on Northwest 177 Avenue,
the evening of February 1,
2011. They first attempted tor
break into two soda vending
machines, one at the Bradford-
Union Career Technical Center,
and the other at the school dis-
trict's Rainbow Center. The trio
couldn't get to the money in the
machines, but rendered one of
them inoperable, causing over
$1,000 damage.
The three then walked to
Powell's Dairy Freeze where
they pried their way into the
building, and made off with $17
from a tip cup.
Beck Chevrolet was the sus-
pects' next stop, where they
' blrid a white pickup in the ser-
vice area. One of the men broke
through a window with a ham-
me'", and the three left with two
OGtor raincoats ,and some
change. They then headed north
where Sergeant Jason Crosby of
the Starke Police Department
spotted them near Market Road,
ending the larceny binge.

Orange Park

man gets proba-

tion for brawl at

mud bog
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor
One of two brothers arrested
for assailing t'wo deputies at
Lawtey's mud bog was sen-
tenced to one year of probation.
Roger D. Jaris, 22, pleaded
no contest to resisting an officer
without violence. Prosecutors
had originally charged him with
battery on a law enforcement
officer, disorderly intoxication
and resisting an officer with
violence.
Deputy David Schlofman
wrote in a sheriff's office report
that on Aug. 19, 2011, around
10:30 P.M., while patrolling the
mud bog, he was approached by
a man who said a group of peo-
ple were trying to start a fight
with him and his friends. The
witness pointed to a throng of
young people.
Schlofman wrote that he,
along with Deputy Jerry Blalock
approached the crowd to "show
officer presence and tb de-
escalate the situation." As they
approached the group,
Schlofman saw a woman trying
to persuade two men into a
truck. The pair of deputies
walked over to the trio, tried to
calm down the two males, and
encouraged them to heed the
woman's instructions to leave.
Schlofman wrote that both
men, later identified as Dylon
Milton Jarvis, 20, and Roger D.
Jarvis, 21, both of Orange Park,
became belligerent with the
lawmen. The deputy added that
he could smell alcohol on both
men and that the pair had blood-
shot eyes.
After the two men refused to
leave, Schlofman told them they
were under arrest. The deputies
tried to separate the Orange Park
pair. That's when Dylon Jarvis
punched Schlofman in the face,
but the lawman recovered and
took Dylon down. Roger Jarvis
also lunged for Schlofman but
Blalock grabbed his arm and put
him on the ground. While both
deputies struggled to handcuff
the two men, the Jarvis' shouted
for help, and soon the two depu-
ties found themselves surround-
ed by the suspects' friends.
Blalock held Roger down with a
knee, then took out a canister of
pepper spray. According to
Schlofman, Blalock warned the
crowd to stay back but when
they kept coming, he diffused
the chemical.
Blalock was then able to
handcuff Roger, and Schlofman,
with the assistance of some by-
standers, collared Dylon. The
two deputies put the pair in an
unmarked jail van and Blalock

A Lawtey woman was sen-
tenced to 45 days in jail and one
year probation after pleading to
several traffic charges, including
one in which she convinced her
mother to attempt covering up a
DUI infraction.
Ashley Danielle Lee, 24,
pleaded no contest to two counts
of DUI and to one count of driv-
ing with a suspended license.
Prosecutors dropped an addi-
tional allegation of leaving the
scene of an accident involving
property damage.
According to court papers, on
Sept. 5, 2011 a witness claimed
she saw Lee leave LaWtey's
Dollar General intoxicated, and
crash a car into a culvert at Mad-
ison and Park Streets. The wit-
ness added that the 24-year-old
then walked to the Lawtey Su-
permarket and called for a ride.
Deputy Trent Page wrote in a
report that after interviewing
witnesses, the registered owner
of the crashed vehicle, Barbara
Lee, also the mother of the sus-
pect, appeared at the crash scene
and claimed she had been driv-
ing the car, and had gotten stuck
after running off the roadway.
Page told the car's owner that
he knew she was Ashley's
mother and that he had already
collected witness statements that
placed her daughter behind the
wheel of the
ditched Oldsmobile.
Barbara Lee then admitted
that her daughter came to her
apartment after the crash and
persuaded her to claim she had
been driving the car. She added
that Ashley ap-
peared intoxicated, was scared
and had fled the area in another
car.
Barbara Lee then reached her
daughter on a cell phone, and
persuaded the 24-year-old to
reveal her whereabouts. Page
and the mother then relocated to
an apartment complex where the
depu-
ty administered field sobriety tes
ts on the suspect, then arrested
her.

Looking back over the last 100 years-..


The year 1911 doesn't ring
any bells in our memories; it .
was a year in which the United
States was not at war with
anyone. A few years earlier (in
1898), it had been involved in
a 10-month war with Spain,
resulting in the United States
taking over the Philippine
Islands and freeing Cuba. It
had shown its growing naval
power in the Caribbean and
Pacific oceans, and its ability
to land trxops on a foreign soil
and fight land battles. A few
ears earlier, Brazil had built
the most powerful navy in the
world, and the United States
had beefed up its naval forces
to protect its interests.
It was a transitional year in
which the people were busily
engaged in nation building and
enjoying the fruits of research
and development of products
that made life a little easier, or

had given them the electric light

and people moving into Florida
settled on either side of the
road. At the time, there were
few roads south of Bellamy
Road.
Florida was inaugurated into
the Union in 1845, with a large
section of northeast Florida
designated New River County
in 1858. Subsequently, other
counties were formed from the
area. The area was renamed
Bradford County in 1861. In
1921, Bradford County was
divided for a final time, with
the western section being
named Union County. Feelings
ran high on both side of New
River-the dividing line. After
90 years, the rift i.s apparently
healed as the counties have
added population and older
generations have passed on.
In 1911, the state continued
buying land in the Raiford area
for the prison system, which
had begun two years earlier. In
total, the-state purchased 20,000'
acres (in round numbers) for
$5 per acre, the going price
for cut-over timberland. When
Bradford County was divided,
approximately one third of
the prison-owned land was in
Union County, and two thirds in
Bradford. The Prison Industries
program paid ad valorem taxes
on the land until the mid-1960s,
at which time the practice was
terminated.
In 1909,William'Howard Taft
succeeded Theodore Roosevelt
as president of the United States
and served the years 1909-13.
.After leavMng the presidency, his
'successor, Warren G. Harding
:appointed him Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court, a position
he would hold until just before
his death in 1930.

In the 66 years since Florida
was admitted to the Union, its
population had grown from
66,500 to 752,619, an influx of
people moving in from other
states, notably from South
Carolina and Georgia. South
Carolina was a hotbed for
slavery prior to the war (1860-
65), and many people left the
state for Florida to escape the
divisive slavery issue and the
possible war. Escape was not
to be, and many men living in
Florida were caught up in the
conflict.
In the 1910 census, the
following population figures
were compiled:
*Bradford County' (New
River County) 14,090
*Dural County 75,163
*Alachua County 34,305
*St. Lucie County 4,802
(St. Lucie County was
shown because it had the least
population of all counties in
Florida; today it is one of the
largest counties in the state, in
body count.)
Toda. Florida is fourth in the

slot within the next decade.
For the people of the United
States, the nation was at peace.
World War I. .which would

began in the prior century .


continued to flourish. That is,
throughout the nation except
in the rural southern states
that lost the war. The northern
states did little to assist their
southern brothers after the war,
and with little or no industry,
the Southland was destitute and
had to repair its economy from
within. President Lincoln may
have looked on the South with
more sympathy, but he was
assassinated April 14, just after
hostilities ended.
The years immediately
following 1911 were generally
good years for Florida people,
and their mode of living was
largely agricultural for the lack
of industry. Phosphate mines
were operating in Marion
County and possibly farther
south. Road building continued
to be low-key, but would begin
in earnest after World War I,
and mining limerock would
escalate. The citrus industry
would stake out thousands of
acres of Florida sand for citrus
groves, which thrive in the sandy
soil. Citrus groves would be set
as far north as Marioh County,
butithefreeze in theearly 1980s
would drive growers to the
south, with the northernmost
line being Interstate.4, which
runs from St. Petersburg to
Daytona Beach.
. With the exception of
an occasional citrus tree in
someone's yard, citrus cannot
take the cold weather of
north Florida. The strawberry
industry, which represented
a moneymaker for Bradford
farmers, was lost to central
Florida, centering around Plant
City. Where Bradford County
farmers once grew some 300
acres, they may now plant 30
acres or less. Bradford farmers,
especially those living and
farming in the Brooker area,
planted bright leaf tobacco for
their money crop, but the use of
tobacco was seriously curtailed
and that source of revenue
disappeared. Whole farms have
been converted to pasture for
running a few cows or for the
growing of grass for hay. Row
crop farming has lost favor
with landowners, and Bradford
County has lost a basic industry.
How did farmers fare in earlier
times?

In 1911 Florida agriculture
consisted of small, individual
farmers. The plantations of
pre-Civil War days, subject
of stories such as "Gone with-
the Wind," existed in Virginia
and the Carolinas, but never
in Florida, although there were
farmers growing large acreage
of cotton in theTallahassee area.
Cotton was the money crop all
farmers planted and gathered
for guaranteed income.
There. was a reason for
Florida's small farms: The large
landowners/farmers of Georgia
and South Carolina were vested
in their home states and in
the system of slavery; they
simply couldn't pull up stakes
and move, but then, they had
no reason to leave, since they
supported the status quo \with its
inequities. Plantations provided
a \\av of life for the small
minority of large landow ners,
not duplicated in undeveloped
Florida.

offering opportunities to those
brave enough to niake the
move. This is a story of my
maternal great-grandparents-
the E. Dosey Dubose family.
I apologize for the personal
history, but it tells a story
and provides little-known
information about a people,
driving them to pack up and
leave their homes for a new
environment.
Dosey DuBose was an
overseer (a labor foreman) for a
large plantation working slaves
in South Carolina prior to the
Civil War. South Carolina was
a hotbed for slavery and also a
type of maverick, attempting to
secede from the Union. While
the political factor contributed
to the family's decision, there
were other factors at work in
the home.
Dosey and his wife were
abolitionists, meaning they did
not believe in the system of
slavery and wanted it abolished,
a minority position irt a slave
state. They were pacifists also,
and felt they could not support
war they felt was coming,
and sought to evade the war
by fleeing to Florida. Alas, it
didn't happen. E.D. Dubose and
his oldest son, Isaiah, 16, were
drafted into the Confederate
States of America and pressed
into service.

In 1859, Dosey, his wife and
five children-one a baby-
packed their entire household
in two two-mule wagons and
headed for Florida, taking two
weeksforthetrip.Family history
doesn't relate the crossing of
the Savannah River, but there
were no through roads, so
likely they forded the rivers and
other streams before arriving at
their destination-Fort Call, a
community adjacent to Bellamy
Road in Bradford County. The
area is now in western Union
County, following the division
of Bradford County in 1921.
Dosey and his son Isaiah
survived the Civil War and
returned home after its end.
Family history doesn't relate
whether or not Dosey had
scouted the area before moving
his family some 300 miles
farther south from the war
and the institution of slavery.
Although Florida was a slave
state, there were few slaves
in the state because the farms
were small, generally one- or
two-mule farms that didn't lend
themselves to slavery.
(Starke resident Robert Jones
wrote a book, "Falling Leaves,"
that depicts the DuBose family
and its travails in moving to
Florida and living through the
war years. The book can be
found in the local library, and
for history buffs, it's a good
read. One reader told Jones he
could pinpoint the location of
the DuBose farm from Jones
description in the book.)
The War Between the States
came to a close in April 1865,
with the Southland totally
crushed and left to raise itself
by its o" n bootstraps, difficult
task in an agricultural society.
The war, like family disputes,
left hard feelings on both sides
that were \ears in healing. In
fact, World War II, with all its
destruction of lives and material
objects, served to bring the
people of the north and south
together as no other source. In
that ar, the military determined


the advantages of training in
the good weather of the South
and stationed thousands '6f
troops from northern state's
with many southern military
personnel stationed in northern
climates. Men and women
across America met aid

BHS girls can't


hold lead in district


loss to Devils


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
A 9-1 run to open the fourth
quarter helped visiting
Williston rally and hand the
Bradford girls' basketball team
a 49-46 District 5-4A loss on
Jan.7.
It was the fourth straight
district win for the Red Devils
after starting district play 0-2.
3radford fell to 3-4 in the
district.
Williston's Cinnemon
Robinson had six points during
the 9-1 fourth-quarter run as
the Red Devils toook a 43-36
lead. Bradford's Mackenzie
Gault made two free throws,
but Robinson answered with
another score.
A foul-line jumper by Gault
pulled the Tornadoes to within
two points. Robinson went to
the foul line for a chance to
add two points to her team's
lead, but missed both free
throws. Wilisha Griner then
knocked down a 3-pointer to'
give Bradford a 46-45 lead
with 3:10 to play.
