Hampton

police

surrender

U.S: 301

BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.corn Editor
Faced with mounting pressure from
Tallahassee, Hampton Police Chief
John Hodges pulled his officers off
U.S. 301 last week. Hodges said that
soon after he made the decision the
evening of Jan. 24, he telephoned one
of the men responsible for pressuring
him to pulling back from the high-
way: Bradford County Sheriff Gordon
Smith.
"I called him up and said, "You
want 301? You got 301," recalled the
chief.
Tensions between the two men had
increased over the past two months,
culminating with a meeting at Hodg-
es' home where Smith laid out a
map of the Hampton City limits and
told the chief his officers didn't have
enough real estate to legally observe,
clock and begin a pursuit of motorists
passing under the traffic light at U.S.
301 and C.R. 18.
"Especially with the southbound
traffic," Smith said recently outside
Bradford High School's gymnasium,
drawing out the town's city limits
on a brown paper sack. "He doesn't
have enough frontage on that side of
the highway," declared the sheriff.
"So what does he do?" Smith added,
"He moves his people across the high-
way."
Smith added that the complaints
against Hampton's traffic enforce-
ment grew to an unbearable level dur-
ing the final months of 2011.
"I couldn't go anywhere without
hearing about Hampton," he said. "I
went to a conference in Tennessee.
Some guy I meet finds out I'm from
Bradford County, Florida, and he im-
mediately starts complaining about
Hampton."
But Smith wasn't the only local of-
ficial fielding complaints about Hamp-
ton's traffic enforcement. County
Commissioner Danny Riddick said he
first stated hearing complaints about
Hodges' crew in May. He said he fol-
lowed those complaints up with vis-
its to the courthouse and was stunned
to learn Hampton was writing two to
three times the number of tickets Law-
tey officers were issuing.
"When you look at Lawtey," he said,
"they've got three miles of highway
frontage, a school right next to 301,
and a school zone on the road. Hamp-
ton's got 1,400 feet of 301, max. Yet
Lawtey is the town with the reputation
as a speed trap."
Riddick said he first raised his con-
cerns about the town in June to City
Clerk Jane Hall, but got nowhere.
"She told me their attorney had
looked into it and everything was un-
der control."
But Riddick didn't stop there.
"I talked to anyone who would lis-
ten," he said. "The State Attorney's
Office, the county judge, FDLE."
Riddick said in October he also
learned of Smith's efforts to get
Hodges to back off the amount of tick-
ets Hampton police were writing. But
the commissioner couldn't get any
traction until the week of Thanksgiv-
ing when he met in Tallahassee with
Rep. Charles E. Van Zant, Rep.Janet
H. Adkins and staff members from the
Florida Highway Patrol and Depart-
ment of Transportation.
"I just laid out what I was dealing
with," he said.
Riddick recalled that the meeting's
participants listened to \what he had
to say and agreed to help him if the\
could.
But one person in that meeting ap-
peared to take a particular interest in
Riddick's dilemma. Van Zant had
himself gotten a speeding ticket in

2A BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, FEB. 2, 2012


Election coverage guidelines announced


Candidates should take note f submission deadlines


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
7Tlegraph Editor

The management of the Brad-
ford County Telegraph, the
Union County Times and the
Lakt Region Monitor would like
to announce guidelines set up for
coverage of upcoming elections
and election-related events.
All three newspapers have a
policy of allowing candidates
in local, county or state races to
submit one free article announc-
ing their candidacy. The an-
nouncement can be accompanied
by one photograph. This article
and photograph will be run free
of charge, but no announcement
will be run for free after Thurs-
day, June 14.
Preferably, candidate an-
nouncements and photos should
be emailed to editor@bctele-
graph.com, lrm @bellsouth.net or
uctimes@windstream.net. Other-
wise, articles should be typed and
of a reasonable length when sub-
mitted directly to one of our of-
fices. (Two double-spaced pages
is a good guideline.) Submissions
should include a phone number
where the candidate can be con-
tacted during business hours in'
case any question arises.
The final day to qualify for
local political office by paying
qualifying fees is Friday, June 8,


at noon. (The final day to qualify
by the petition method is May
7.) Therefore, every candidate
should be prepared .to announce
his or her decision to seek office
by the Thursday after that final
qualifying date.
No free announcements will
be accepted by the newspaper
offices after deadline for the
June 14 paper. That means the
submission deadline is Monday,
June 11,at 5 p.m.
Other guidelines are as fol-
lows:
No fundraiser for a local can-
didate will be announced for free
or covered by newspaper person-
nel. Local events where all, or
at least most, of the candidates
in any one race are to be pres-
ent can be announced for free
and will likely be covered by
newspaper personnel as a news
story so long as those events are
open to the public. The decision
as to whether staff will cover an
event as a news story is strictly
reserved for the management of
the newspapers.
Local events where a single
candidate for state office is pres-
ent may or may not be announced
for free and covered by newspa-
per personnel as a news story.
The newspaper management re-
serves the discretion of choosing
to cover the event or not.


No letter to the editor from
any candidate will be accepted
once that candidate has filed to
run for office.
Letters to the editor from oth-
er people that pertain to the elec-
tion or political issues will not be
accepted to run during the two
weeks immediately preceding a
primary or general election.
The final day prior to the pri-
mary election on which a person
may submit a political letter to
the editor would be Monday,
July 23, at 5 p.m.
The final day prior to the gen-
eral election on which a person
may submit a political letter to
the editor would be Monday,
Oct. 15, at 5 p.m.,
If a letter submitted on ei-
ther of these final dates is highly
derogatory to a particular candi-
date, the newspaper reserves the
right to allow a supporter of that
candidate to directly answer any
charges made (without making
charges in return) in the issues
published on Aug. 2 or Oct. 25
(deadlines are July 30 at 5 p.m.
and Oct. 22 at 5 p.m.)
However, no letter to the edi-
tor concerning the elections will
be published during the week im-
mediately prior to an election.
All other communications
from candidates to the public via
the newspaper will have to be


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Presidential politics is on ev-
eryone's minds this year, but
there are some important local
races appearing on the ballot this
year as well.
In addition to the constitutional
offices of the county clerk, sher-
iff, tax collector, property ap-
praiser and elections supervisor,
there are also three county com-
mission and two school board
races to decide this year.
The county commission dis-
trict up for election are Districts
1,3 and 5. The school board dis-
tricts up for election are Districts
3 and 4.
Just which voters make up
those districts is still up in the air
somewhat. Both the county com-
mission and school board have
voted on new maps, but there is a
chance those maps could change
if the two bodies meet and try to
settle differences over new po-
litical boundaries.
Earlier this year, the school
board approved a map with
broader changes than the more
conservative map adopted by
the county commission. Like the
school board's new district map,
the county's map restores Dis-
trict I as a minority majority dis-
trict, but changes little else. That
means there are larger population
size differences between the oth-
er four districts approved by the
commission.
County Districts 1,3 and 5 are
currently represented by Ross
Chandler, Lila Sellars and Eddie
Lewis. School board Districts 3
and 4 are currently represented by
Randy Jones and Vivian Chap-
pell. Lewis has already filed to"
run for another term as has Jones.
Chappell is not running again.
Sheriff Gordon Smith has
filed to run for a second term.


Subscnption Rate in Trade Area
$39.00 per year:
$20'00 six months
Outside Trade Area:
$39.00 per year:
$20.00 six months


He currently has two opponents
announced- Democrat James
"Jimmy" Harris and Republican
Bryan Waldorf.
Vicky Thompson Miller has
filed to run as a Democrat for the
tax collector's office.
Local candidate filings and fi-
nancial reports can be monitored
online at the supervisor of elec-
tions website, www.bradforde-
lections.com.
Other local races include su-
perintendent of schools and
county judge. Like the consti-
tutional offices, all voters in the
county decide those offices.
State offices include, up for
election include Florida repre-
sentative and Florida senator.
Preliminary district maps show
that the area will likely no longer
be represented by Janet Adkins.
Instead, Bradford has been into
a district represented by Rep.
Charles Van Zant. Florida Sen.
Steve Oelrich has announced a
run for Congress, so the area will
have a new state senator as well.
The area was previously repre-
sented in Congress by Rep. Cliff
Stearns, who has been drawn out
of this are according to the re-
districting maps currently under
consideration.
Florida also has a seat in the
U.S. Senate to fill. There are 16
declared candidates for that seat,
mostly Republicans, including
former Sen. George LeMieux.
The seat is currently held by in:
cumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.
Incumbents State Attorney
Bill Cervone and Public Defend-
er Stacy Ann Scott are currently
the only candidates who have de-
clared runs in those races.
Some Florida Supreme Court
retentions and circuit court races
will also be on the ballot.
Qualifying week for county
offices is from noon on Monday,
June 4, to noon on Friday,June 8.

Bradford schools

low in state ranking


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

SAs promised, the state has re-
leased a numerical ranking of
public schools on the heels of
the district rankings released last
week.
Bradford County placed 58th
when ranked among Florida's
67 counties, and individually its
schools were low in the rank-
ings as well, particularly when
compared to their counterparts
in Keystone Heights and Lake
Butler.
In all, 3,078 schools were
ranked, including elementary,
middle, combination and high
schools. According to the state,
these rankings coupled with the
district rankings makes it easier
for parents and taxpayers to un-
derstand the performance of their
schools.
:"Floridians care about educa-
tion and it is critical that our stu--
dents have access to world-class
schools that will give them a
pathway to a successful career,"
said Gov. Rick Scott. "Measur-


ing each school's performance
helps gauge our progress toward
that goal."
Schools were ranked by as-
signing points. Points totals were
derived from FCAT scores.as
well as other statistics like the
percentage of.,lowest quartile
students making learning gains
in reading and math, and the per-
centages of students meeting high
standards in reading, writing and
math. High school rankings also
took graduation rate, participa-
tion and performance on accel-
erated coursework, and college
readiness into consideration.
"Measuring a school's ability
to boost academic achievement
helps ensure that we are providing
a high-quality education for our
students," said Florida Education
Commissioner Gerard Robinson.
"Having the data available in an
easy-to-use format allows par-
ents, educators, and business and
community leaders to view the
information and make decisions
about how they can be involved
in education decisions in their lo-
cal communities."

Teachers union set to meet with district Ford


BY MARK.J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The school district and the
Bradford Education Association
are heading into another bargain-
ing session next week after the
union representing teachers and
many other employees rejected a
salary offer from district reps last
month.
Time was not actually wasted
on bargaining during the last
session as BEA representative
George Bowen wanted to know
the. district's best offer on sala-
res up front.
SIncreased enrollment means
the district is getting an addi-
tional $577,704, and the district
decided to put all of that money
toward additional compensation.
The district offered two steps'up
the salary schedule to employ-
ees eligible to recov rthf e steps
nrissed in 2009 and'2010:plus a
cne-time $350 bonus. The raise
would have been retroactive to
July 1, 2011, for teachers and
education support professionals.
"The school board and I in-
tend to give every penny of that
to employees," said Superinten-

dent Beth Moore in a letter to
employees following the January
bargaining session.
Some of that money would
have also gone to employees out-
side of the union, including eli-
gible administrators.
BEA has also requested that no
teacher receive less than a "needs
improvement" rating during the
first year of the new evalua-
tion system. The district has not
agreed. They are also stuck over
when formal observation of new
teachers should begin. BEA says
not within the first 30 days. The
district says not within the first
15 days.
But BEA said its primary issue
remains fair compensation. The
proposal put forth by the district
was rejected. Negotiators for the
union are still discussing the $1.6
million growth in the district fund
balance ifi201TT, "eb iThiigh em-
ployeesaf6 "r i'lfreir fourth yea'
without a salary increase and are
paying 3 percent of what they do
make toward their retirement, a
change imposed by the state.
The district says that $1.6 mil-
lion is dwarfed by $2.4 million in
funding cuts for 2012.

Still, BEA points to Florida
Department of Education num-
bers which place the district's
average teacher salary 651 out of
67 counties in the state. The av-
erage paraprofessional salary is
59'" in the state, the average food
service salary is 63r, and the av-
erage bus driver and custodian
salary is 66'h.
"We were told by the board's
team that there would have been
no increase for employees in
2011-12 without the $577,000
from the recent funding increase.
It's difficult to believe the dis-
trict could increase its fund bal-
ance by $1.6 million in 2010-11
and none of those funds would
be returned to the hardworking
employees of the district," an up-
date to BEA members stated.
According to the district, if
BEA had accepted its offer,
eligible employees would have
seefi the -additiobiil iioney in
their paychecks on Feb. 15.
The next meeting for negotia-
tions is set for Wednesday, Feb.
8, at 3:30 p.m. in the conference

S Should I mow my lawn during
U the winter? Most of the grass is
brown and not growing, so it seems
unnecessary.
Most Florida homeowners are relieved when
Winter arrives, and grass growth slows or is cut
short by frost, offering respite from the weekly
chore of mowing. But don't put that lawn mower
away for good.
Florida's comparatively warm winters and the
absence of snowfall allow weeds to grow right
through the winter. If they mature, they
produce seed that will germinate in the M
spring. 0 G
One alternative is to go around the yard A
with a weed-eater, removing seed heads.
However, that can exacerbate the prob-
lem-broadcasting the seed heads even
further.
Probably the best thing to do is mow ev- UF 'I
ery third or fourth week. Raise the cutting ,As
height to its maximum, and mow over any
visible weeds with a grass-catching bag to remove
the seed. You're not really mowing the grass, just
controlling the weed population. And it's "green-
er" than applying pre-emergent weed killers.

Should I rake my yard? I've heard that if I
don't, it will protect the grass underneath from
frost.
It's probably a good idea to rake. Leaf cover can

in having a winter

The hardiest winter vegetables grown in our

throughout the season. Nevertheless, they

Believe it or not, you can set out cold

broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower,
onions and Swiss chard plants should do
VERSIT well. Those that do better from seed are

turnips, and potatoes (seed pieces).

Do I need to fertilize my winter vegetables?
Yes, continue to fertilize about every six weeks,
using one pound of 9-0-9, 13-0-13, or 15-0-15 per
100 feet of row. Don't put fertilizer directly on
the plants themselves. That will lead to burning or
death.of the plant. Always place the fertilizer on
the ground about six inches away from the main
stem of the plant.

6A BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, FEB. 2, 2012


HAMPTON
Continued from 1A

Hampton in May. Like Riddick
and Smith, he was being deluged
with complaints from constitu-
ents.
"Everywhere I went," the leg-
islator recalled, "people were
walking up to me and saying,
'You've got to do something
about Hampton.' I couldn't even
go to a prayer meeting around
here without somebody bringing
it up."
The representative insisted
that his own citation had nothing
to do with his attendance at Rid-
dick's meetings.
S"I got the ticket. I paid the
ticket," he said. "I went to the
courthouse, checkbook-in-hand,
and I paid the ticket, no questions
asked."
And Smith added that Van
Zant's citation was no secret. ,
"He brought it up during the
delegation meeting in Starke,"
the sheriff recalled.
"It was during that delegation
meeting that Van Zant got an ear-
ful of complaints about Hamp'ton.

The volume of the grievances
never seemed to let up.
In 'January, Riddick got a
phone call. The working group
he had met with in Tallahassee
the week of Thanksgiving was
meeting again Jan. 19.
"I got the sense that my pres-
ence wasn't necessary, but some
decisions were being made and I
wanted to know what was hap-
pening."
At the second gathering, the
two state representatives were
again in attendance. But a
third legislator also showed up.
Gainesville's Rep. W. Keith Per-
ry was also getting complaints
about Hampton. Riddick said
another lawmaker based further
south also wanted to attend, but
couldn't make the Jan. 19 date.
Complaints about the south
Bradford hamlet were spreading
across the peninsula.
Riddick added, that FHP also
came for the follow-up. But the
agency didn't bring just one per-
s6n. It brought three. And Smith
also sent a representative, Capt.
Eddie Boatwright.
Riddick said some attendees
in the second meeting agreed to

look into the matter a little deep-
er.
Hodges said it was about that
time that he got the message that
if he didn't back off, Hampton
would- be looking at some ex-
pensive litigation, and that there
might even .be an effort to revoke
the town's charter.
"That's why I decided to pull
off 301," he said. "I wasn't
willing to risk the town's future
over the issue. I don't think they
could have revoked our charter,
but they could have made it very
expensive."
The chief added that even
without the revenue generated by
the tickets, he can still carry on
his war on drugs, which is why
he amped up the 301 patrol in the
first place.
"The money we made on 301
enabled us to beef up our person-
nel to combat the drug dealers,'
he said. "A lot of people are un-
der the impression that we made
money writing tickets. We did
not make money. We lost mon-
ey."
The town's own audited fi-
nancial statements support the
chief's claim. For the fiscal year



of the lis pendens must file a claim
within 60 days after the sale.

Hodges said his plan worked.
"Hampton is the only com-
munity in Bradford County that
doesn't have drug dealers stand-
ing on a street corner," he said.
"You look at every other commu-
nity around here, Starke, Pleasant
Grove, Lincoln City, Lawtey, all
of them have .drug dealers oper-
ating in the open. We don't have
that in Hampton because we've
had the manpower to keep them
off the street. "
But that's an argument Rid-
dick doesn't buy.
"How many officers do
you need for a community of
around 450 residents," he asked.
"They've got 17 people on the
force. Do the math. That's one
police officer for every 26 peo-
ple."
The commissioner also ques-
tioned the chief's claim that his
primary motivation was public
safety.
"When you drive through the
Southside Elementary school
zone," he said, "you see the yel-

low school zone light. You also
see the blue lights of a deputy's
patrol car. The deputy is out
there on the road, plainly visible
to ensure the safety of the school
children."
"But if you drive through the
Hampton Elementary school
zone," he continued, "the police
aren't out on the road, making
sure the students stay safe. They
are hiding in the woods, waiting
for a speeder to come by so they
can write a ticket."
Hodges remains adamant that
his sole motivation is combating
drugs.
"They burned my house down
in 2005," he said of his enemies.
If we weren't hurting their busi-
ness, I don't think that would
have happened."
As for Riddick, Hodges said
the young commissioner allowed
himself to be used by more savvy
political operatives.
"He thought he was doing the
right thing," Hodges said of Rid-
dick's relentless efforts. "Some-
body put him up to it. He was
used."
The chief also said he wants
to mend fences with Van Zant.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC AUCTION


Recalling a phone call with the
legislator that deteriorated into a
heated exchange the chief said,"I
should have been more tactful."
The chief appeared less rtcep-
tive to reconciling with Smith,
when interviewed Monday night.
The sheriff claims that the two
men now running against him,
Bryan Waldorf and Jimmy Har-
ris, are both close allies of the
chief. Hodges for his' part chose
not to comment on Smith's
claim. "I'm not supporting any-
body right now."
Hodges has resigned himself
to the fact that his plan to enlist
U.S. 301 motorists to fund his
anti-drug efforts is over. Already
two of his five full-time officers
have resigned.
"We will probably wind up
with two-and-a-half full-timers,"
he said.
"We'll just have to step up our
efforts with the people we do
have," he added. "We are not
going away."

Management plan strives to improve water quality


Farmers could be asked to change theirpractices


ear&


Sdae/


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

As part of the Santa Fe River
basin farmers in the area could
be'asked to implement practices
that help reduce nutrient pollu-
tion flowing into the river.
Tom Frick, chief of the Bureau
of Watershed Restoration for the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection, presented de-
tails of the Santa Fe River Basin
Management Plan that could be
adopted soon to the Bradford
County Commission.
Federal and state laws set forth
water quality standards and what
must happen when quality drops
and water bodies become im-
paired. This includes establish-
ing a total mfkimum daily load
for contaminants, a restoration
goal based in part on the desig-
nated uses for a particular water
body.
Once the total maximum daily
load is determined then the ba-
sin management action plan is
formulated outlining how best
to approach restoration. The op-
portunity for public participation
is required, and Frick said there
haid been multiple meetings on
the Santa Fe River Basin Man-
agement Plan.
:Frick said the elements of the
plan must be equitable alloca-
tions so all stakeholders--point
sources and non-point sources
of pollution alike-contribute
to: restoration activities. Point
sources are addressed through the
permitting process, but non-point
sources are addressed through
the management plan.
,!According to a FloridaSprings.
org: "In spite of the predomi-
nantly natural conditions near
the springs, the spring water
chemistry and biology is being
degraded. The land use in the
larger- springshed that provides
groundwater to the springs has
changed over the years from ru-
ral and light agriculture to more
.intensive agriculture and residen-


tial development. The springs are
discharging water that is increas-
ing in nitrate levels and is not as
clear as it once was. In fact, the
lower Santa Fe River has been
determined to be impaired. The
major sources of nitrates in the
springshed are fertilizer (from
agricultural operations and in-
creasing residential develop-
ment) and human and animal
wastes. In addition, there is evi-
dence that the amount of water
flowing in the springs and the
river has decreased due to other
competing uses."
While the damage is occurring
in the lower Santa Fe River Ba-
sin, Frick said the law requires
they look at the entire watershed
and any area that could be con-
tributing to the impairment, thus
the basin management plan cov-
ers Bradford County.
What does that mean to the
county? Frick said they would
work with agricultural operations
on implementing best manage-
ment practices that reduce pollu-
tion but also benefit growers. He
talked about optimizing irrigation
-as an example, helping growers
to improve the efficiency of their
irrigation systems. Funding is
available to assist with improve-
ments that help the environment,
he said.
Frick said they would work
with entities like the Suwannee
River Partnership and local soil
and water conservation boards,
but Paul Still of the Bradford Soil
and Water Conservation District
has been warning, the county
commission about the possible
consequences of the manage-
ment plan.
According to Still, total maxi-
mum daily load results from this
area prove that the problem is
taking place in the lower river
basin, not because of agricultural
activities in Bradford County.
The upper and4ower Santa Fe are
two different rivers as far as Still
is concerned, one fed by surface
water and the other by ground-


water springs.
"Really all they share is a
name, and that's just something
someone wrote on a map," he
said. "It has nothing to do with
the geology and hydrogeology of
the river."
The land use in the upper and
lower basins is also quite differ-
ent, according to Still, with the
more intense agricultural uses
appearing in the lower river ba-
sin. He said everyone would be
served better if there were two
basin management plans instead
of one-one for the upper basin
and one for the lower basin.
Water leaving the upper Santa
Fe River Basin meets water qual-
ity standards, Still said, but the
current plan treats the entire area
as responsible for pollution. This
area is getting "tarred with a bad
brush," he said, and that could
lead to landowners in Bradford
County being forced to take mea-
sures that address someone else's
problems.
There's not much to worry
about in the first five years fol-
lowing implementation unless
initial water quality restoration
efforts are not successful, then
action requirements could be-
come more severe.
"We're primarily concerned
with what will happen year six
and on," Still said.
He encouraged DEP to split
the plan in two. He said this area
should be diligent and do all that
is required, but it shouldn't be re-
quired to do more than that. He
said the focus could move from
agriculture to wastewater treat-
ment and septic tanks, for ex-
ample.
Frick said the upper river basin
is a contributor to what happens
in the lower basin. The water is
moving down, so the entire wa-
tershed needs to be addressed,
whether there is one or more
basin management plans. There
is a restoration focus area in the
lower Santa Fe where limited
funding and staff will be concen-


treated, he said.
The problems didn't occur
overnight and it will take a long
time to recover, he said.
The public comment period on
the basin management plan has
closed. DEP will be examining
and incorporating comments and
taking the plan to the secretary of
the department for adoption.
There is no opting out for the
county, as County Manager Brad
Carter found out, and if individu-
al growers do not cooperate over
time with implementing recom-
mended practices, there will be a
mandatory monitoring period to
determine if there is a problem
originating from that site. The
landowner would be liable to
cover the cost of that monitoring
to prove they are not contributing
to the problem.
Frick said if monitoring un-
covers there is a problem, DEP
would continue working with
that grower toward implement-
ing best practices. There is no
penalty that would be assessed.
Commissioner Eddie Lewis
talked about a return to agricul-
tural production in the county and
said he would hate to see anyone
driven out of business, but Frick
said that was not the goal. Only in
extreme cases are advanced best
management practices called for,
and funding is available to help
make those transitions. Solutions
must be fiscally viable, Frick
said, so no farmer is put out of
business.
County extension agent Jim
DeValerio.said they are already
at work educating farmers on
the best times to fertilize and
the amount of fertilizer to use so
there isn't a great deal of runoff
impacting water quality. They
are being taught how to produce
more efficiently, he said. It is'to
their benefit to adopt better prac-
tices because they end up spend-
ing less on water and fertilizer.
He said Bradford farmers
should not be hampered by the
basin management plan.

Local business offers incentive for healthy habits


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor


Just as common as people
making New Year's
resolutions to lose weight and
practice better eating habits is
.people not sticking to such
resolutions for whatever
reason.


Would the chance to win a
$500 Visa gift card, though,
make you follow through with
your resolutions?
Walgreens of Starke is
inviting people to take part in
the "Battle of the Bulge," a
program held in conjunction
with "Walk with Walgreens"


to promote exercise and
healthy habits.
"I would like to put it out
there where we really promote
not just exercise, but healthy
eating and the whole health-
and-wellness frame of mind,"
said Melanie Fuhrman, the
manager of Walgreens of


Starke.
The program began Jan. 28,
but those interested may still
get involved. Walgreens
registers participants and
records blood pressure, weight
and percent of body fat. On the
last Saturday of every month,
beginning at 9 a.m.,


participants meet at
Walgreens, have their blood
pressure, weight and body-fat
percentage recorded. The
person who loses the highest
percentage of body fat at the
end of the year will win a $500
Visa gift card.

Saturday. Her hopes weren't
far off as 18 registered that
day, with another registering
this past Monday.
People are welcome to
register to take part in the
program at any time.
Fuhrman said the genesis of
the program was in December
when she was talking to
Walgreens employees about
something the store could do
to promote health and wellness
in the community. The
discussion centered on how
many people make New

weight, exercise and eat
healthier, only to have those
resolutions fall by the wayside
before January even ended.

Keystone youth to compete in 8-man football league


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor'
A 22-6 bowl win was a fine
way to cap a 6-2-2 season, but
the success the Keystone
Heights Mitey Mites Pop
Warner team had left players,
parents and coaches looking
for an opportunity to play in
the spring.
That opportunity presented
itself in the form of the Florida
,Spring Youth Football League,
an eight-on-eight, tackle
league made up of more than
200 teams of various age
divisions from throughout the,
state.
"Basically, I was Google
searching on the Internet trying
my best to find a flag football
league that would let us put an
entire team into it instead of it
being a league we had to join,
and then all the kids got
broken up," said Joseph
Sayers, the offensive
coordinator of the Mitey Mites
team. "When we found (the
Florida Spring Youth Football
League), we just couldn't
believe how easy it was.": '
Nine players from the Mitey
Mites team will be joined by,
three other players to make'up-
the Keystone Chiefs, which
will' begin play in the spring
league Saturday, Feb. 18.


Bryson Channell (foreground) carries the ball during
practice.


I


Sayers will again be offensive
coordinator, while Mitey Mites
head coach Jason Channell
will serve in the same capacity
for the Chiefs. Jason Paremeter
will be the defensive
coordinator, while Dale
Davenport and Anthony
Parmeter will be defensive and
offensive assistants,
respectively.
The Chiefs will play most of
their games in Ocala,
Jacksonville and Palm Coast.
Keystone is one of 36
Peewee (9-10-year-olds, under
105 pounds) teams. Those
teams will be separated into
four divisions of eight teams
each. The top four in each
division will advance to the
postseason, which is capped
with the state championships
on April 21.
Games will be divided into
22-minute halves and,employ a
running clock.
"It's going to be real high-
tempo, lots of scoring," Sayers
said.
Sayers said he feels he and
the rest of the coaching staff
will probably be outcoached a
little since eight-on-eight
football is a different game,
but he added that some other
coaches who have experience
in this version of football have
helped the Keystone coaches.
Still, Sayers said the
expectation is to learn this year
and improve in the future.
"The kids are real excited
with it being the first year, but
next year we expect to do a lot
better," Sayers said. "This year
will be the year we feel it out."
Sayers believes the players
will also face a higher, level of
talent. Though the Pop Warner
Mitey Mites players did face
good competition during the
year, Sayers said he imagines
Florida Spring Youth Football
League teams from big cities


will basically have all-star
teams as they can take the top
players from not just the Pop
Warner leagues they play in,
but from Youth Football and
Fred Jackson leagues.


"I don't believe the kids
have ever seen talent like
we're going to face," Sayers
said.

Prison
privatization is
a bad idea
Dear Editor:
There is a massive push to
privatize the state correctional
facilities in Florida. This push
comes after an attempt to sneak
privatization into last- year's
budget. Since Judge Fulford
ruled that it could not be in-
pluded in the budget they have
pow decided to ram it through as
h stand-alone bill. Who are they
and why do they want to privat-
ize prisons?
SThe main one wanting to pri-
vatize is our Gov. Rick Scott
and his reason is pretty obvious.
Just a quick cruise around the
Internet and we find that GEO
(second largest private prison
corporation) donated $400,000
to the GOP in 2010 and $25,000
to Scott's inaugural fund.
Wait, what's this? There's a
guy:narrd Brian Ballard who
was on Scott's Inaugural Fund
Finance Committee and he's a
lobbyist for...wait for it...CCA
(the largest private prison corpo-
rition) and they raised a re-
ported $3 million for the party.
S-Wow! Okay, so our governor
1t a bunch of money from the
'jiivate prison people for his
gim1paign and now he's trying to
privatize the prisons. Isn't this,
.4 the very least, a conflict of
interest? Yeah, maybe that's
Ehy there is an ethics complaint
filed against it.
s:The others trying to ramrod
privatization are Senate Presi-
int Haridopolos and senators
XD. Alexander, John Thrasher
god Don Gaetz. I sat through the
?Immittee meetings this past
eek and was astounded by the
fact that a) all the committee
:meetings on this subject were all
.in a week's time and b) that
'whenever Alexander wasn't
chairing the hearing, Thrasher
was. It is really a thing to behold
:how they work in concert to-
igether. Just the little things like;
,while other senators have to ask
ifor permission from the chair to
:speak, they could speak at will.
-Awesome! NoW" that's power
right there.
Anyway, the stated reason for
privatizing is a little figure of
'seven-percent savings to the
-state. Even if that amount of
Savings was true, which is
highly speculative at best, it
;would, only be toward the
%budget. Costs elsewhere will
'soar and inevitably will be paid,
once again, by the state or, more
-accurately, us taxpayers. You
'see, private corporations have to
,make a profit for the sharehold-
ers, which is not a bad thing.


editor@bctelegraph.com


Long live the free market. Mak-
ing a profit through prisons,
however, is a bad thing. Here's
why.
To make a profit; a company
must eliminate things that are
not profitable to the entity even
though they may be profitable to
society. In corrections, our in-
mates and staff provide services
to local communities that they
cannot afford to pay people to
do. They clean our roads of trash
and even road kill, which bene-,.
fits tourism. They maintain
some of our school grounds and
buildings. Of course, this is done
when the children aie not
around, i.e. after hours, week-
ends and holidays.
In some small communities
they provide garbage pickup.
Inmates at some of our facilities
train dogs for companion ani-
mals and at one point trained
seeing-eye dogs. They maintain
our parks and our playgrounds.
They help prepare for natural
disasters by filling sandbags,
preparing buildings and cleaning
up afterward. Think about who
did a lot of the clean up after the
2004 hurricanes.
All these services to the
community make no profit for a
corporation and actually cost the
business. These services will
have to be paid for by the com-
munities and, in the end, come
right back to the taxpayers.
There are also services pro-
vided to the inmates that will not
be profitable to a private com-
pany and therefore have to be
eliminated. Some of the educa-
tion that is currently provided to
the inmates, such as GED, com-
puters; drafting, parenting skills,
resume and job interviewing,
makes no profit for' the com-
pany. Dare I point out that edu-
cation cuts down on recidivism?
Now, what company do you
know that will spend money to
keep customers from coming
back? None, if they want to stay
in business. Why do you think
pharmaceutical companies
spend the bulk of their resources
on treatments rather than cures?
If the patient is cured he doesn't
need to come back and the com-
pany loses future profits.
Hopefully, you can see why
private prisons are not a good


way to spend our tax dollars. It
is not the duty of private entities
to protect and serve the public, it
is the-state's.
,A private company's duty is
to make money for the stock-
holders. The state's duty is as it
says in the Florida Constitution,
"We the people of Florida being
grateful to Almighty God..sin
order to...ensure domestic tran-
quility and maintain public or-
der...establish this constitution."
We, the citizens, are the state
through our government
representatives, let's not shirk
our duty. Call your senator and
legislator and tell them to vote
no on privatization.

KHVFD needs
volunteers
Dear Editor:
The Keystone Heights Volun-
teer Fire Department takes its
responsibility seriously. Our
community is protected by dedi-
cated and committed career and
volunteer emergency service
responders who do their jobs
when called upon, even at 3 a.m.
Saving lives and protecting
property is not an easy task. We
do it willingly and often without
recognition. In addition to the
emergency functions there are
many non-emergency functions
such as fire prevention, public
education, fleet maintenance,
administrative and logistical
tasks.
Volunteer firefighters- and
emergency medical service pro-
viders are a special kind of peo-
ple. We are looking for mem-
bers to help answer the call of
duty. The KHVFD has started a
new campaign to recruit volun-
teer members, for Station 10 to
respond to ergergency calls for
help and assist with those other
non-emergency duties.
As our community grows, our
emergency calls for help in-
crease, Today we respond to far
more than fires and vehicle ac-
cidents. When someone is hav-
ing a heart attack, we are there.
We answer calls for anything
from hazardous materials inci-
dents to sports injuries to indus-

Working to
save our
country
Dear Editor:
I have been thinking a lot
lately about our country and
what we, as individuals, can do
to try to save it.
Every Sunday I go to church.
When church is over, I get in my
car and drive home. Then I eat
lunch. Then sometimes I take a
nap, sometimes I watch a movie.
What I need to do is leave my
car parked at church and then
put on a comfortable pair of
shoes and just walk around the
neighborhood near my church
and stop to visit with people
who live right there.
I have been driving past their
houses for many years, but I
never took the time to get to
know them on a personal basis.
Who knows, if they get to know
me and if they realize that I ac-
tually do care about them, then
maybe one day they will walk
across the street on a Sunday
morning and sit with me in
church.
I already have a pair of com-
fortable shoes. All I need now is
to care enough about others to
do this. I hope I will.
Thanks for your time,
Debbie Browning.

Tiffani Gaskins, Marcia

weightlifting meet in
Belleview, leaving them one
,place shy of qualifying for
-state.
:The three lifters each
finishedd 10 pounds behind the
lifter who captured the third
aiid final state-qualifying spot

-classes.
S Coming up short, though,
T.as just fueled the lifters' fire

-poach Brian Griffis said all
have promised him ihe) will
makee it. to state nekt year.
,They have been working out in
-the weight room this week
even though the season's over
"and have vowed to do so at
least three days a week until
-next year's season starts.
"I don't know how to tell
you how proud I am of them,"
'Griffis said.
Gaskins and Fletcher, who
,are sophomores, competed in
the 101 and 119 classes,
.respectively. Gaskins had a
_bench press of 95 pounds and a
:clean and jerk of 105 pounds
`for a 200 total, while Fletcher
had a bench:of 120 and a clean
and jerk of 110 for a 230 total.
Brown, who is just a
'freshman, had a bench of 125
and a clean and jerk of 125 for
"a'250 total in the 154 class.
- -Ashley Mock also competed
for Union in the 169 class. She
had a bench of 115 and a clean
and jerk of 115 for a 230 total.
Griffis said his entire team
this season was not only young
but had enough good lifters in
each class that Union was able
to win four of its seven


regular-season meets.
What it amounts to is one of.
the strongest teams he's had
that will stay intact for several


years.
"I'd say that Union County
has a very bright future with
these girls," Griffis said.

Bradford's Samantha Cook

compete at the state meet,
which will be held Saturday,
Feb. 11, in Kissimmee.
Cook, a junior who placed
third at state last year, won the
unlimited class with a, bench
press of 210 pounds and a
clean and jerk of 210 pounds.
Bradford coach Deac Story
said he was pleased with
Cook's effort and happy she is
returning to state, but he would
like to see her do a better job
of being successful on all six
of her lift attempts--something
she didn't do at the Section 4
meet.
"My goal for her at state is
to go six of six, then we'll see
what happens after that," Story
said. "I pray that's a state
championship."
Keystone's Miller, a junior,
will be making her first
appearance at state after
winning the 110 class with a
205 total (105 beq h, 100
-clean and jerk). It was the
same total as Vanguard's
Alexandra Williams, but
Miller was awarded first due to
the weigh-in tiebreaker.
The win was a pleasant
surprise.
"She was just wanting to
place," Keystone coach Connie
Crawford said of Miller, who
is in her second year of
weightlifting.
Miller will be joined at state
by teammate Morgan
Boettcher, a junior who won a
state title two years ago and
placed second at state last year.

meet with a 415 total (205,
210).
"Of course she wanted to
beat (Cook)," Crawford said,
"but -she was happy with
second."
Also qualifying for state was
Bradford freshman Karen
Clark, who placed third in the
110 class with a 185 total (95,
90). She matched her best-ever
lifts in both the bench press
and the clean and jerk.
Story said it was quite a big
deal for him to see Clark
qualify for state. He has known
Clark-through coaching her
older sister-since she was a
middle school student.
He admitted he's a little hard
on her and doesn't always
show her he's pleased when
she does well, but he was
happy with her performance.
"She deserves it," Story said.
"She's worked really hard."
Bradford's Heather Johnson
just missed out on qualifying
for state with a fourth-place
finish in the 199 class. She had
a 265 total (135, 130), which
was 5 pounds shy of third-
place finisher Shalexis Price of
North Marion.

One benefit Sayers can see
from participating in Florida
Spring Youth Football is that
the players will get a lot of
practice in open-field tackling
just due to the nature of the
game. If'"a defensive player
fails to properly make a tackle,
the offensive player could go
the distance and score.
"The field's only going to be
80 yards long and 40 yards
wide, so it's a little bit
different," he said.
Sayers said another benefit
should be that with playing
another season in the spring,
the players should be that
much better come Pop Warner
time.
Last season proved to be
pretty successful for the Mitey
Mites after a slow start. A 6-0
win over the Santa Fe Red in a
season-opening jamboree was
followed by a 7-all tie against
Palatka and 22-0 and 25-0
losses to Bradford and Palatka,
respectively.
Palatka would go on to
finish undefeated prior to a
bowl game loss, while
Keystone topped Bradford 20-
14 in a second meeting later in
the season.
The win over Bradford was
part of a four-game. Keystone
defeated Gainesville twice by
scores of 7-0 and 22-14 and
the Santa Fe Silver by a score
of 20-6.
Keystone ended the regular
season with a 12-all tie against
Lake City, then went on to
defeat the Bradfordville Red
Bucks 22-6 in a bowl game in
Tallahassee.

Sayers said the team thanks
all in the Keystone and
Melrose communities who
have supported fundraisers to
helix pay for the expense of
playing in the Florida Spring
Youth Football League. The
team also thanks the Lake
Region Pop Warner
association for its' support and
help.
The Chiefs are looking for a
sponsor. If you are interested,

we'll drum up this year, we'll
be able to have more (area)
teams next year," Sayers said.

Williston tops BHS boys to


earn top seed, home court


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford managed to whittle
what was once a 25-point
deficit to five points, but the
Tornadoes could not complete
the rally in a 69-58 loss to
Williston on Jan. 27 in
Williston that determined the
number-one seed in next
week's District 5-4A boys'
basketball tournament.
Both teams entered the
contest with identical 8-1
district records. The winner
would lock up the number-one
seed in the district tournament,
which would also mean the
right to host the tournament.
The game was almost all
Williston (14-7) from the
outset. Bradford's Marco
Grimsley had the first basket
of the game, but the Red Devil
responded by scoring the next
14 points.
Williston never trailed again,
though the Tornadoes (14-9)
made things interesting in the
fourth quarter.
The Red Devils led 56-42,
but a steal and subsequent
layup by Deantre Burch to
start the fourth quarter sparked
an 11-2 Bradford run.
Williston's Damien Strange
answered Burch's score with a
layup following his own steal,
but Burch scored again,
driving the lane and pulling the
Tornadoes to within 58-46.
Keaaris Ardley was all alone
at the other end of the court
when Justin McBride grabbed
a defensive rebound. A pass
downcourt led to a layup by
Ardley, who followed that up
with a 3-pointer after Burch
forced a turnover. McBride
then scored on a rebound
putback to make it a 58-53
game with3:49 to play.


Bradford, though, would go
2 of 10 from the field the rest
of the way, while McBride
fouled out at the 3:36 mark.
Williston outscored
Bradford 11-5 after McBride's
basket, with Detereon Ross
scoring nine of his game-high
26 points during that span.
McBride led Bradford with
23 points, while Burch had 13.
The two combined for 26
second-half points as the
Tornadoes fought their way
back into the game after a first


half that saw them turn the ball
over 18 times.
The Red Devils led 4-2
when Strange scored eight
straight points. He made a 3-
pointer before stealing the ball,
scoring and drawing a foul in
the process. Strange made the
free throw to put Williston up
10-2. He then added another
basket after Ross forced a
backcourt turnover.
Ross was fouled while

Lawmen
pounce on
robbery sus-
pect
Starke police and Bradfor
deputies flooded the area sur
rounding the Bradford Count:
Fairgrounds Jan. 27, catching
robbery suspect moments afte
the heist.
A dispatcher directed police
to the Kangaroo conven
ience store at the intersection o
Market Road and Temple Ave
nue at 5:44 a.m. Deputies how
ever, also responded to the call
some leaving from the sheriff'
office blocks away, and speed
ing into a windy predawn rair
shower.
Store personnel provided
detailed description of the rob
ber: a white male wearing
black shirt and a camouflage
jacket. They said the suspect
fled on foot.
Based on that description, one
officer immediately provides
responding units with a probabk
suspect: Jeremiah Rosier.
Deputies and police quickly
converged on the area
some pursuing the suspect from
the store, others cutting off an
escape route toward the CSX
railroad tracks to the east. One
lawman went directly to Rosier's
home on North Thompson
Street.
Sheriffs Sgt. Bill Murray
spotted the suspect in the park-
ing lot of the fairgrounds near
the Gold Key store and detained
him.
Less than 15 minutes after the
9-1-1 call, the suspect was in
custody. At 6:30, the store's
parking lot was crammed with
patrol vehicles. Some deputies
and officers sought shelter from
the rain underneath a canopy
that protected the store's gas
pumps, while oth-
ers interviewed store clerks on a
sidewalk adjacent to the build-
ing. Relieved
store employees offered the
lawmen coffee.
But the break from the ele:
*ments didn't last long. At q:47
dispatchers alerted police to a
burglary at the Lit-
tle Caesar's Pizza Restaurant on
Orange Street, and the officers
sped off again.

Report: woman

ics, punched
witness, bit
deputy
A Griffis Loop woman was
arrested Jani. 25 after she alleg-
edly bit a deputy on the arm,

charged with possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana,
resisting an officer with vio-
lence, battery and possession of
a controlled substance without a

$32,000 and she remained in jail
as of Jan 31.
According to sheriff's office
records, a witness saw Smith
drive off the road and crash into

Swas travelling on S.R. 100 be-
tween Starke and Keystone
Heights. The witness called 9-1-
1 but before deputies or medics
arrived, Smith regained con-
sciousness and took off. The
witness followed her and re-
ported seeing Smith inhale va-
pors from an aerosol can while
driving. The woman again lost
consciousness and the vehicle
stopped near Edward's Grocery
in Theressa.
The witness also stopped and
tried to remove the keys from
Smith's vehicle, but during the
attempt Smith awakened again
Sand punched the Good Samari-
tan in the face. However, before
she could flee a second time,
EMS workers from Theressa
arrived and prevented her depar-
ture.


Deputy Russell Gordon wrote
in a report that as he approached
the scene just after 3 p.m., he
saw Smith pushing medical
workers away in an attempt to
escape. Gordon wrote that he
reached in the woman's car to
grab the keys but Smith reacted
by striking the lawman's arm,
Then biting him. Gordon coun-
tered with a touch-tase to the
suspect's left thigh. He then


removed the -42-year-old fror
the car and handcuffed her.
Gordon wrote that h
searched the vehicle and found
small cigarette in the car's ash
tray which tested positive fo
marijuana and one, 5-milligran
d Roxicet pill. The deputy wrot
- that Smith admitted to him tha
y the cigarette was.hers and that
a friend had given her the pre
r scription pain reliever earlier ii

man down St. Clair Street and
Sonto a dirt road leading behind
a chiropractor's office. The wit-
ness added that the driver of the

or six times with the motor ve-
hicle.

in a report that he caught up
with the car near the intersection
of Bessent Road and Call Street.
The driver, Grissett, told Mor-
rell that she and her passenger
were arguing and she ordered
him out of the car.
The victim gave Morrell a dif-
ferent version, agreeing with the

the narrative that while talking
to the victim about the missing
property, Sgt. Bill Murray told

zO, 2012 while on ,m extenaea visit
with his oldest daughter who resides
with her family in Jacksonville,
Florida.
He was born in Cos Cob, Conn.
to Mary and Howard Morrell.
From the day of his birth, Pearl
Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941 Robert began
to make his mark in the world.
Graduating from Greenwich High
School in 1959 he went on to earn
an associate's degree in firefighting
from Norwalk Technical Institute.
Robert enlisted in the Army
where he was stationed in Leaven-
worth, Kan., Georgia and through-
out Germany. In Germany he was
in the communications group, re-
sponsible for setting up mobile
communication stations. While in
Berlin he witnessed the construction
of the great wall. He felt the plight
of the people and spoke often about
those that it affected.
In his later years, Robert used
that experience as an impetus for his
commitment to the community as
seen in his efforts with the local and
state government.
One of many of Robert's passions
was his role as a firefighter. He was
assigned to the Old Greenwich Fire
House as a paid firefighter and later
volunteered for the Cos Cob Fire
Patrol. In 1966 Robert began a
successful career with IBM before
he retired in 1992 and became an
international consultant for them.
Another passion of Robert's was
fishing. He fished from Long Island
Sound, Pt. Judith, Rhode Islandand
Melbourne in the east to Cabo San
Lucas, the Columbia River Gorge
and Alaska in the west. He has
caught blue fish, striped bass, cod,
sturgeon, a300-pound blue marlin
(estimated because he threw it
back), a 220-pound Alaskan halibut
and a 38-pound king salmon. He
has traveled to all but North Dakota
and seen every state capitol building
in those states where he traveled.
As a reserved man, one could ex-
perience Robert's talents and com-
passion through his adept skills as a
writer. Winning accolades for his
talents, and even more recently
through his heartfelt vignettes from
his days as a paid fireman, he was
able to shed light on his greater-
than-life encounters.
Robert was married to Jean L.
Morrell for 34 years and is survived
by: three children, Tracey
Woodard, Leean Morrell-Taylor and
Scott Morrell as well as nine grand-
children.
Funeral services were Jan. 28 at
Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral
Home in Greenwich, Conn.

BHS makes

mark in all-

star games

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford High School was
well represented in a couple of
all-star football games as RJ.
Buxton earned one of his
.team's offensive MVP honors
in the Jan. 14 Columbia Youth
Football Association all-star
game in Lake City and
Bradford head coach Derek
Chipoletti was the head coach
for Team Florida in the Jan. 21
Florida-Georgia Border Wars
game in Valdosta, Ga., that
ended in a 23-all tie.
Buxton, a backup
quarterback who started at
wide receiver/tight end the past
two seasons, played
quarterback in the Lake City
game and put his East all-stars
team up 14-0 with a short
touchdown run in the second
quarter.
His team would eventually
win 14-7, with no scoring in
the second half.
Buxton said it was a surprise
to learn he had nabbed an
offensive MVP honor,
especially considering he
wasn't around to accept,'the
award personally. He played
the first half only before being
taken to the hospital after
taking a knee to the back of his
head.
"I didn't know who I was or
anything," Buxton said.
Still, it was an enjoyable
experience. Buxton took snaps
from Bradford teammate

score in a 43-11 win over "It was fun-a lot of fun,"
visiting Madison County on Buxton said.
Jan. 24. A week later, the team of


Florida all-stars was set to take
on a Georgia team that had
won every Border Wars game
up to that point. The
Chipoletti-coached team
rallied from a 23-0 deficit to
salvage a 23-all tie.
"It was my only tie (of my
career), but it felt like a win,"
Chipoletti said.
Team Georgia took
advantage of mistakes right off
the bat. An errant snap on the
Florida team's first series led
to a safety. Georgia took the
ensuing free kick and marched
downfield for a touchdown.
Then, another errant snap by
Florida was recovered by
Georgia for a touchdown.
"We're down 16-0, and I
hadn't even blinked an-eye,"
Chipoletti said.
Florida rallied, with an
interception setting up one
score and North Marion's
Dyvonne Mcna;r returning


BHS
Continued from 6B


attempting a 3-pointer with 0.7
seconds left in the first quarter.
He made two free throws to
send the Devils into the second
quarter up 18-8.
Turnovers by Bradford led
to consecutive baskets by Ross
as Williston went up 22-8.
Bradford scored five straight
points on baskets by Deon
Aldridge and Brian Walton,
while Aldridge added a free
throw, but Williston responded
by scoring seven straight.
A 3-pointer by Brandon
Preston sparked a 7-2
Williston run to close out the
half.
The Red Devils scored the
first eight points of the third
quarter to go up 46-21.
Bradford responded with a 21-
10 run that featured 14 points
by McBride.
The Tornadoes will close the
regular season when they
travel to Orlando to play Jones
on Friday, Feb. 3, at 7:30 p.m.

play at 6 p.m.

Santa Fe's Brandon Willis
scored on a 4-yard run with.
5:23 to play, with Mount
Dora's Vegas Harley
converting on a tw6-point
conversion run to tie the game.
Chipoletti said the
"hometown kids" played well,
especially Bradford defensive
back Devin Paulk. Bradford
running back Dexter Clayton
did a good job blocking, while
Bradford receiver Brandon
Thomas had a big catch. that
kind of provided a spark for
the team after it fell behind
early.
Also playing were
Keystone's Evan Harvey and
Bruce Kirksey, and Union
County's Cory Houck, Joaquin
Lovo and Kendall Wright.
Chipoletti said they all played
well.
