County won't budge on redistricting


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
It looks like neither the Bradford
County Commission nor the Bradford
County School Board are going to
budge on redistricting, which means
there will be a separate set of voting
districts for each board moving for-
ward.
The two boards met for a workshop
early Monday morning. The school
board stood behind the map it selected
because it met all of the criteria set
forth, but it was willing to consider
other maps that met the same criteria.
The county commission's selection,
however, only increases the percent-
age of minorities in the first district. It


does not move lines to address popula-
tion differences among the remaining
districts and, thus, does not match the
districts approved by the school board.
SThe county commission approved
that map on a 4-1 vote last month, with
Lila Sellars being the only commis-
sioner to speak out against the county's
choice. Commissioner Danny Riddick
seemed to have had a change of heart
on Feb. 6 and said he would be will-
ing to consider another option. Chair-
man Ross Chandler said he didn't think
having separate plans was best for the
people they represent, but the best al-
ternative at the time was to leave things
(mostly) untouched if there wasn't con-
sensus on how to redraw the lines. Still,
he wanted to go back at some point and


address the other criteria.
Commissioners Doyle Thomas and
Eddie Lewis were immovable, howev-
er. Thomas said he didn't want to ge
a reputation for being "wishy-washy,"
and later in the commission's regular
meeting both men said they wouldn't
change their minds or even consider
addressing:the-issue in 2013 after
this year election was over, an option
presented by Supervisor of Elections
Terry Vaughan who would have rather
seen a delay than a permanent split of
the school board and county commis-
sion districts.
Adopting separate maps means some
voters will wind up voting for a county
commissioner from one district and a
school board member from another.


Elections will be more expensive and
likely more confusing, and some fear
the county commission's failure to ad-
dress population differences between
its districts could open its decision up
to challenge.
School board members feel the com-
mission has made the wrong decision.
School Board Member Vivian Chap-
pell said her blood was boiling fol-
lowing the workshop and said some
commissioners weren't paying atten-
tion to what they were being told. She
believed the decision was more about
political self-preservation.
"If you don't think you can win, then
don't run!" she said.

School board taking electric complaint to PSC


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


The school district believes it-and
ultimately every other Starke elec-
tric customer-has been overcharged
under the city's rate structure, which
hasn't changed in almost-30 years, and
the district is taking action.
The school board through its attor-
ney, John Cooper, is asking the Florida
Public Service Commission to require
the city to reexamine its rate structure
and to refund years of revenue it re-


Refunds requested for millions in overcharges


ceived by overcharging customers.
The city's fuel surcharge has long
been suspect, but the school district-
one of the city's largest electric cus-
tomers-has taken that scrutiny to a
,nexVdevel, analyzing the formula the
city uses to charge customers and find-
ing more than one fault.
The school board is taking what
Cooper, Superintendent Beth Moore
and Finance Director Julee Tinsler
have found to the Public Service Com-


mission. Though the PSC doesn't reg-
ulate most of what municipal utilities
do, including the rates they charge, it is
involved in the setting of the rate struc-
tures city electric companies use-that
is the methodology of computing the
charges, as the city auditors put it.
The district is turning to the PSC
after receiving no relief from the city
commission. Faced with tighter and
tighter budgets, Moore asked the city
for a reduced rate for the school dis-


trict, which pays the commercial rate
like all nonresidential customers. She
was rejected. She then asked the city to
be released to another electric provider
since comparisons showed the district
could save around $200,000 annually
with Clay Electric. She was rejected
again.
Moore has also called for a state
audit of the system, taking her com-
plaint to state legislators, and Cooper
presented the results of his research

Prison reps meet wi


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Chris Southerland, the re-
gional director for north Florida
prisons, and Warden David El-
lis from New River Correctional
Institution have tried to reassure
the county commission that ev-
erything possible is being done
to save jobs and ward off any
negative economic impact fol-
lowing the closure of the prison
next month.
When he presented Souther-
land and Ellis to the commission,
County Manager Brad Carter-
who was once a.regional prison
director himself-said the county
couldn't have two better people
leading at this time and oversee-
ing the process.
Southerland told the commis-
sion Feb. 6 the Department of
Corrections is facing something
it has never faced before. On top
of funding cuts resulting from
state revenue shortages, the de-
partment has to close a number
of institutions at once for effi-
ciency's sake.
Southerland said she began
with DOC in the late 1980s and
was blessed to see the department
undergo tremendous growth over
the years. While it's good news
that crime and recidivism is
down, it also means prison beds
created when the need was great
are now empty. Southerland
said there has been a 6 percent
reduction in prison admissions,
and that means that by October
the department will have 16.000
more beds than it needs.
Budget constraints have led to
stressful staffing issues for ad-
ministrators, Southerland said.
Posts that need to be filled have
been left open. One benefit of
Jhe closure of New River is that
its employees will be transferred
into vacancies at 8ther institu-
tions, allowing those prisons to
become fully staffed.
"The biggest challenge right
now., of course, and our biggest
priority, is making sure that we
place everybody that's involved
in these closures. That's what our
goal is," Southerland said
SThis goal to transfer employees
:o institutions within a-50-mile
radius of New River was com-
municated early on, but Souther-
land said there was still concern
from some employees that 50
miles would be too far to travel.
To help accommodate everyone,
she said employees were issued
placement preference forms.
Preference and seniority are both
being considered as assignments


Talent


are decided, she said.
"By Feb. 24, every staff mem-
ber will know where they are
going to be assigned to," said
Southerland.
In the area formerly known
as Region 2, Southerland said
there are 777 correctional officer
vacancies. There are more than
1,200 vacancies statewide, so ev-
eryone will have a position to go
to, she said. New River has 271
correctional officer positions.
There are currently 118 vacancies
at Columbia Correctional, 112 at
Union Correctional, 84 at Florida
State Prison, and additional posi-
tions at Lawtey and the Recep-
tion and Medical Center.
Southerland said Ellis has
done a great job communicat-
ing with and educating his staff
every time new information is
available.
As ohe of the people affected
by the closure of the prison, El-
lis said he understands what ev-
eryone is going through. People
have been concerned whether or
not they would have a job, but he
shared Southerland's confidence
.there are enough positions to go
around.
"I think it's going to be a great
thing for the department because
we'll be able make it safe and se-
cure at other facilities that are re-
ally struggling to fill positions,"
Ellis said.
He also assured the county it
would continue to receive assis-
tance from inmate squads, which
save local governments thou-
sands of dollars in labor costs ev-
ery year while helping to keep up
the community.
As ,they tried to answer the
commission's questions, they got
into more detail about the consol-
idation of facilities. Southerland
said there would be positions for
administrative and clerical staff
in addition to correctional offi-
cers. Ellis said some higher-level
employees might have to move
farther away if they-want to hold
on to their titles, though.
"We've een praying really
hard, and God is good, so I have
confidence in God that he's go-
iig to give us a miracle and
we're going to be able to place
everybody," Southerland said.
That doesn't mean everyone
will be placed in the same posi-
tion, as positions fill up by se-
niority, captains could find them-
selves filling lieutenant positions.
Lieutenants could be bumped
down to sergeants. When de-
motion is unavoidable, employ-
ees will lose the additional pay
those higher positions afforded,

but they will enter their lower
position at the top of the pay
class, said Southerland. In time,
through attrition and retirement,
employees will have opportuni-
ties for promotion.
Superintendent Beth Moore
was at the meeting and raised
an issue that many may not have
thought about. While employ-
ees will be relocated as close to
home as possible, most of the in-
mates at New River Correctional
are being transferred elsewhere.
There are families who have lo-
cated here just to be close to their
loved ones in prison, Moore said,
and if those inmates are moved
many of those residents could
wind up leaving as well.
That would impact the econo-
my as well as the school system,
she said. If the school district
loses even 100 students, that
adds up to more than $600,000
in funding the district would lose
for local schools.
Southerland said it would be
great if they could keep inmates
near their families, but realisti-
cally it's not possible. Ellis said
inmates are classified by the type
of custody required and the type
of programs they are involved in.
Not every institution is equipped
to handle every type of prisoner,
so it's a struggle trying to place
inmates at a facility that oan be
accommodate them.
Some 1,600 inmates will be
moved, obviously not all of them
to local institutions.
Commissioner Eddie Lewis
asked what the board could,do
with all of the talk of privatiz-
ing prisons, and Southerland
said to talk to legislators. That's
the same advice they offer their
staff.
"That's your voice in the
House and Senate," she said.
As for the closure of the in-
stitutions already announced,
Moore asked if it was a done
deal. Southerland said it was.
Institutions weren't chosen ran-
domly for closure. One of the cri-.
teria that helped determine New
River's closure was the presence
of nearby prisons that could in-
corporate displaced employees,
she said.
Something County Commis-
sion Chairman Ross Chandler
said was not take into account
was how much more of an eco-
nomic .impact something like
this has on a rural area versus a
metropolitan area, which would
be better equipped to absorb the
loss.

The 36-year-old's former em-

had harsh words for his ex-dep-

"He has tarnished this badge
(the very one he wore on his
uniform) and brought dishonor
to himself, this agency and law
enforcement in general," said
Smith in a press release.
Allegations against the popular
resource officer first arose in No-

iff, Hernandez was fired soon
thereafter for failing to cooperate
with the inquiry.

Last month, Hernandez was
charged with additional infrac-

allegations.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, on the evening of
Jan. 25, Hernandez's wife saw
the former resource officer with
another woman. Later, when
Hernandez returned home, his


wife had packed his belongings
and asked him to leave. After she
threatened to call police if he did
not leave, the 36-year-old struck
her and one of the couple's chil-

you allow me to stay here. I'm
asking for your vote and sup-

In making the announce-
ment, Alvarez pointed out that
the current situation in the real
estate market and property tax
environment is one of the most
challenging he has seen. "Be-
cause of the scarcity of market
activity and the influence of
distressed sales that are a size-
able part of today's market, it
is a very difficult time to estab-
lish the actual market values
of properties. Experience does
count in tracking this type of
market."
He credits his office staff for
helping to work through the
difficulties. "We have a great
team in place. I believe my ex-
perience.and the experience of
my staff will help to guide our
office .through this challeng-
ing period. Our goal is always

Association of Florida and pre-
viously served as president of
that statewide organization. He
currently is a member of the as-
sociation's legislative commit-
tee, which monitors changes to
the property tax laws of Floril

In regard to the legislative
process, Alvarez believes the
appraisers' advice to legislators
can offer them a different per-
spective. "The truth is, the laws
are made and changed in Tal-
lahassee, but we have to imple-
ment those laws. So we try to
monitor any proposed changes
to the law and provide sugges-
tions for the legislators to con-
sider. Sometimes they listen,"
he said.

Kiley and a son, Lacy. They

"In the redrawn map, District
3 includes nearly 70 percent
of the people I now represent;
residents who signed my peti-
tion to qualify for the ballot. It
also includes two of my current
district offices, in Gainesville
and Orange Park, serving the
people of north central Florida.
"Although the courts may re-
draw the map, it is only fair to
my constituents and others con-
templating running for office,
that I make a decision and an-
nounce it now," said Stearns. "I
have decided to run in the new
District 3, which includes all or
parts of six of the eight counties
I currently represent."
Stearns has indicated that he
will establish residency in the
new District 3.
Stearns was the first congres-
sional candidate in Florida to
qualify for the ballot by peti-
tion, receiving strong support
throughout north central Flor-
ida. During his tenure, Stearns
has represented most of District
3 and understands the needs
and concerns of its residents.
Explained Stearns, "While


-is intended for students to get
,help in completing their Free
Application for Federal Student
Aid," said SF Financial Aid Di-
rector Maureen McFarlane. "As-
sistance is given by financial aid
professionals from SF and the
University of Florida."
There will be a scholarship
drawing for students who attend
and complete a survey.
The event is hosted by SF in
conjunction with UFandAlachua
County Public Schools. To learn

Florida ard what information to

District 3 includes western
Marion County, it does not in-
clude Ocala which was divided
into two Congressional Dis-
tricts 10 years ago. I'm pleased
that the new maps finally put
the city back into one district,
something that both the city
and I encouraged the legisla-
ture to do."
"I look forward to the oppor-
tunity to continue to represent
the University of Florida, Santa
Fe College, and the Veterans
Hospital in Gainesville," added
Stearns. As a senior member
of the House Veterans Affairs
Committee, Stearns was vital
in securing support for the con-
struction of the new VA Patient
Bed Tower in Gainesville. "I
also look forward to building a
strong relationship with the VA
Medical Center in Lake City
and its healthcare profession-
als.
"I also appreciate the chance
to introduce myself and to share
my record with new voters, es-
pecially in the rural areas. I
have a strong record of support
for our farmers and the agricul-
tural industry."
Stearns again received the
Friend of the Farm Bureau
Award from the American Farm
Bureau Federation in 2011.

A4 BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, FEB. 9, 2012


New dock going in at Santa Fe ramp


Sro tke caqdemt feitce


SAcross the Garden
Fence is a new column
sponsored by the Bradford
S County Extension Service.
SReaders who wish to pose
gardening questions should
forward them to Mary Bridg-
man atjtd@ufl.edu.

/ Is winter a good time for plant-
ing trees?
Absolutely! Here are a few simple
rules to follow:
1. Buy a tree suited to your property.
Consider sun and water requirements. For exam-
ple, Dogwoods, Redbuds, Silver Maples, Southern
Magolias and Elms like drier sites. If your prop-
erty tends to be wet, try Loblolly Bay, Sweetbay
Magnolia, Tupelo, Sweetgum, Ash, Live Oak or
River Birch. Go to http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/
EP/EP00700.pdf for more information on native
trees for north Florida and which sites suit them
best.
2. Put the tree in the right place on your
property. Is there anything more pitiful than a tree
that has been butchered to accommodate an over-
head power or utility line? Plan ahead and avoid
this problem. Place the tree so branches will not
tear into shingles. If you have a swimming pool,
don't plant a tree close by, or you'll be forever
fishing its leaves, blossoms, and/or seeds out of the
water. Plant trees to the side of your property so
that sunlight can reach the central portions of your
yard, where there are usually plants such as annu-
als and grass that need lots of sunlight. M
3. Prepare the tree for planting. 0,; G
Soak the roots of "bare root" trees in wa-
ter at least an hour before planting. If your
new tree is in a container, make sure the
soil is moist. If it's dry, water it well and
then plant the next day.
4. Dig a hole that is the right size. UF:U
The hole should be no deeper than the bot-
tom of the root ball and at least twice as
wide. The most important thing is for the roots


to be able to grow rap-
idly in any direction
without encountering
compacted soil. There .
is no need to add peat
moss or compost-
simply backfill with
the dirt you dug out. -
5. Set the tree
correctly in the hole.
Many nursery plants
are set too deeply in
their pots. When re-
moving the tree from
its container, brush off Mary W. Bridgman
the top layer of soil so
that the first major roots emerging from its trunk
are exposed. These roots should be about ten per
cent of the root ball above the ground. Sometimes,
the roots of nursery plants left in their containers
too long will wrap in a tight circle. If this problem
is not addressed, the roots will strangle each other.
To correct the situation, take an inch off the root
ball, all around its outer edge. Ahy roots that have
wrapped around the stem should also be cut.
6. Backfill the right way. Fill the hole half
way with soil. Steady the tree, and run water into
the hole until bubbles stop coming up. Finish fill-
ing the hole with soil and run water again until
bubbles stop. Do not compact the soil-it should
be left loose to promote root growth. There is no
need for a retaining berm-just water on top of the
root ball itself, allowing the hose to run slowly to
facilitate absorption.
ASTER 7. Mulch. Two to three inches of
ARDENER mulch-placed outside the root ball, not
on top-will help conserve moisture,
The ring should be two feet in diameter
per inch of trunk diameter. No fertilizer
N,7.1 is needed for the first six to eight weeks.
U Application of the correct amount of wa-
ivRsrTYi after is the key to a newly-planted tree's
.ORIDA survival. You'may find recommenda-
e .xnsion tions at http://hort.ifas.ufl.edu/woody/ir-
rigation2/shtml.


County Commissioner Danny Riddick called the installation of a new dock at the
Santa Fe Lake boat ramp a miracle resulting from a complaint call. Riddick, who had
asked his fellow commissioners to consider funding a new dock for the area, said God
provided the money after someone called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission to complain the ramp area was closed for maintenance. When he was
contacted, Road Department Director Paul Funderburk told Fish and Wildlife about the
Improvements the county was trying to make to the area arid explained a dock was
-i01o needed. Fish and Wildlife it turns out was able to assist with no additional cost to
the county. Riddick said the project should be complete in a couple of weeks.

THURSDAY, FEB. 9, 2012 IIRDFOI 'COUNTY TELEGRAPH 7A


BUDGE
Continued from 1A

S The county commission ad-
dressed the minority majority dis-
trict, which commissioners said
was a priority, and they said they
wanted the two boards to share a
plan, some just didn't want it to
be a plan that caused too much
change to their districts. Lewis
said he would rather stick with
small changes this close to an
election.
School Board Chairman Randy
Jones said the school district had
no money to put toward defend-
ing a plan that doesn't adequately
balance population differences.
.Chandler asked if the board
would have a chance to go back
and make changes if there was
a challenge to its map. County
Attorney Terry Brown said they
could get out of litigation quick-
ly if they were willing to make
changes, but School Board At-
torney John Cooper wasn't as
certain it would be so easy, par-
ticularly in federal court. He said
the result of a challenge could
mean lawyers draw the county's
districts instead of commission-
ers.
Based on his research, Cooper
also said that keeping population
differences within 10 percent was
a "bright line" he had observed in
the rulings he looked at.
"I am troubled-and I have
shared this with the (school)
board-if we're adopting a plar
that we're all sitting in this room
saying doesn't meet the criteria
of the law," he said. "To adopt
that plan and go forward ...
knowing you would probably
lose that challenge just makes no
sense to me."
He advised caution.
Chappell told the commission
not meeting the criteria set by the
redistricting committee was her
concern with the commission's
plan.
"It seems to me you brought
a committee in, the committee
made a suggestion, and then you
didn't go with their suggestion,"
she said, adding that committee
members are upset about that.
School Board Member Stacey
Creighton said not only did the
county commission not select
one of the maps recommended by
its citizen committee, it selected
the one plan committee members
unanimously rejected.
"These are not just five people
off the street, these are five people
you entrusted to make a decision.
They looked at the requirements,
and this plan did not meet them,
and that's the very plan that you
all adopt," Creighton said.
If the commission doesn't like
any of the recommendations, it
still could have come up with a
plan that met all of the criteria
without the danger of a lawsuit,
she said.
Thomas and Lewis openly
doubted the probability of a law-
suit unless the minority majority
district wasn't maintained, which
it has been. Their attorney agreed.
Who would sue except for noto-
riety, Thomas asked. District 1
was the priority, he said, and that
has been settled. He didn't see
how changing the other districts
was required.
Chandler said if other coun-
ties in the state were keeping
population differences within
10 percent as they undergo re-
districting, it would be hard for
Bradford County to defend not
making changes.
"If we're the only county that
opts out of that, we become very
visible," Chandler said.
Sellars said she understood
the election was near. Her seat is


open this year, as is Chandler's
and Lewis'. But she said if dis-
tricts change and commissioners
lose some constituents and gain
others, part of campaigning is
selling yourself to those new vot-
ers.
"By no means do we want two
redistricting maps. I mean, why
would we have that? I know it
would be a headache for (the su-
pervisor of elections), it would
be a headache for our citizens,"
Sellars said. "We have been
charged with three criteria, and
we have only met one."
She said commissioners aren't
doing justice to the process if the
commission doesn't do what it
has been asked to do.
Vaughan said time is of the es-
sence, particularly for those who
might want to run for office, but
if both boards could not reach a
consensus, they did have the op-
tion of tabling the issue now (ex-
cept for District 1) and address-
ing it next year. That would be
preferable to each board adopt-
ing its own map.
As the workshop was drawing
to a close and county commis-
sioners were stating where they
stood,Thomas asked again about
' the likelihood of a legal challenge
and the severity of the situation if
the county were willing to admit
it was wrong down the road.
Likely or not, Chandler said he
wouldn't vote to defend a lawsuit
filed against the county over this
matter.
"I don't think we ought to
spend one dime of county money
on anything legal if we can cor-
rect it up front. I would not vote
to spend a dime of county money
when we are asked to do some-
thing and we don't do it," he
said.
Creighton agreed.
"I wouldn't vote for anything
that is going to increase our risk
of litigation. I don't think we
have money in this county to
throw away on something like
that," she said.
Creighton said the county
commission had all of the infor-
mation it needed to make a deci-
sion now instead of putting it off
for a year.
Seizing upon Thomas' state-
ment about admitting later the
county"-'as wrong if redistrict-
ing became a legal issue, Creigh-
ton said, "The operative word is
'wrong.' You can do the right
thing right now and avoid all of
it."
The school board left the work-
shop saying it would wait until
the commission had formally
decided what to do and sent that
information to them.
Commissioners Riddick and
Sellars had already said they
would be willing to wait until
2013 to get a map that met all of
the criteria. Chandler said nobody
wants change, but it is inevitable.
He has lost supporters in the map
the county chose and gained new
constituents who may or may not
support him.
"I've still got to go out and do
the same thing I've done every
year I've campaigned. I've got to
go out and convince those voters
I will represent them well," he
said. He was in favor seeing all
of the criteria addressed.
Lewis, on the other hand, said
he was standing up for constitu-
ents who said they didn't want
to lose him. While he was ame-
nable to postponing a decision
until 2013 during the workshop,
.later at the commission meeting
he said he wanted to move for-
ward with the plan the commis-
sion had already adopted.
Thomas agreed, saying he
didn't want to earn a reputation
for being easily swayed. He said


he voted on the plan he believed
in and he's sticking to it.
"I may be accused of not
wanting change, but we have not
done nothing illegal," Thomas
said, adding the map adopted ad-
dressed the most important issue,
the minority majority district.
The commission was under no
obligation to accept one of the
recommendations from the com-
mittee, he said.
Even with three commission-
ers and the entire school board
on the other side, Thomas and
Lewis still won the day and per-
haps the next 10 years if no more
is done on redistricting until after
the next census.
There had been some discus-
sion of declaring the item an
emergency because of the time
frame and formally voting again
or waiting to agenda a vote for
the next county commission
meeting. It was unclear whether
that would ever happen. Having
voted once, Brown said there
was no reason for the commis-
sion to vote again.


PSC
Continued from 1A

into the monthly fuel adjustment
charge to the school board Mon-
day night along with a copy of
the complaint he subsequently
filed with the PSC.
The formal complaint first
deals with the formula being used
to calculate the fuel adjustment,
which Cooper called erroneous,
The city hasn't generated pow-
er since the late 1990s when it
closed down its power plant and
signed an all-requirements con-
tract with the Florida Municipal
Power Agency. It is still using the
same formula that was approved
in the mid-1980s to calculate fuel
adjustment charges, however.
The formula uses dated power
cost information and no longer
represents the city's actual fuel
costs, according to Cooper.
Although the city's correspon-
dence with the PSC at the time
said its rate formula would be re-
viewed and revised regularly for
accuracy, Cooper found no evi-
dence any revisions have taken
place.
The complaint also criticizes
the fact that there is a single fuel
adjustment calculated for resi-
dential and commercial custom-
ers. Cooper said this has resulted
in fuel adjustment overcharges
for both customer classes.
Finally, the formula also in-
cludes a factor to distribute the
cost of power lost in transmis-
sion, or line loss. Since a multi-
million project to reduce line
loss from above 13 percent to 8
percent was completed, there has
been no reduction in the line loss
factor in the formula.
Examining the 12-month pe-
riod from October 2012 to Sep-
tember 2011, Cooper found the
city collected nearly $3 million
through the fuel adjustment. Us-
ing what he believed the fuel and
line loss factors in the formula
should be, Cooper calculated
that customers were overcharged
nearly $1.69 million in that year
alone.
During the same 12-month pe-
riod, the school district's power
costs to the city amounted to $1.2
million-more than 9 percent of


the city's total electric revenue
for that year. Cooper said that
means of the $1.69 million cus-
tomers were overcharged, the
school district was overcharged
more than $150,000.
That represents the equiva-
lent of four teachers, Moore said
Monday night.
Not only does the complaint
request that the PSC order the
city to correct its formula with
new information for fuel and line
loss costs, it also requests that
PSC require the city to refund
overcharges to customers.
Cooper told the school board
he wasn't sure the PSC would
take action on the complaint, but
if not, the board also has the op-
tion of suing.
"Dr. Moore has gone above
and beyond the call trying to get
the city to address this issue,"
Cooper said. "The city has been
... unresponsive I think is prob-
ably the best way to put it."
Cooper is a Clay Electric cus-
tomer at home and a Starke cus-
tomer at the office. In discussing
the actual purpose of fuel adjust-
ment charges and how they are
meant to help a power company
recover fluctuating fuel costs not
covered in their base rates, Coo-
per said sometimes a company's
base rate is more than enough
to cover costs. On those months
the fuel adjustment appears as a
negative number, meaning the
customer is given credit for the
overage and their total bill is re-
duced by that amount.
Cooper said that while he has
seen this happen on his bills at
home, at work he couldn't recall
it ever happening. That was a red
flag, he said, that got his inquiry
going.
Tinsler said the numbers they
believe the fuel adjustment for-
mula should be based on would
still result in the district paying
more than it would to Clay Elec-
tric, but the cost would be a lot
lower than the district currently
pays for electricity.
School Board Member Viv-
ian Chappell spoke for the board
when she told Cooper, "Let's do
what we have to do."
I Cooper said he would submit
the complaint the next day. He
said the city was aware the dis-
trict was investigating'the matter
because of the records request-
ed.
"I think if you talk to any city
commissioner, the clerk or the
operations director, they all think
what they're doing is all fine,
but they haven't looked at it," he
said.
SAfter the commission's meet-
ing on Tuesday night, at which
Moore hand delivered a copy of
the complaint, Starke Operations
Manager Ricky Thompson said
he was unsure of what the PSC
would deb with the complaint,
but the city would comply with
whatever the ruling.
While he agreed the formula
hasn't been adjusted, he argued
that customer costs have come
down since improvements have
been made to the system, Com-
paring residential costs of FM-
PA's 16 all-requirements cities,
Thompson said Starke averaged
the fourth lowest during the last
calendar year. He said it doesn't
make sense to say the city is
overcharging customers when
there are other more expensive
utilities.

struck the couple's 6-year-old
girl, lacerating her forehead and
hand. The wife then took the
children to the Shands Starke
emergency room.
The following day the former
deputy turned himself in and his
former co-workers charged the
36-year-old with misdemeanor
battery and felony child neglect.
On Tuesday, the defendant's
attorney, Terry Brown, told the
judge that investigators used the
Jan. 25 incident as an opportunity
to question his client without the
benefit of counsel.
"I think it's clear that it (the
misdemeanor battery and felony
child neglect charges) was some-
what excessive and was designed
to hold the defendant until these
additional charges could be
filed," Brown told Judge Mc-
Donald.. "And also they were
utilized so that investigators
could question the .defendant
while he was in custody, outside
of my presence."
Brown went onto ask the judge
to release his client on his own
recognizance for the Jan. 25
charges and to keep bond for the
unlawful sexual activity charges
to a minimum.
Assistant State Attorney Bruce
Helling asked the judge to hold
the bond as is, $410,000.

Puerto Rico," the prosecutor
said. "We have heard that he has
been attempting to get money for
a plane ticket. All of those things
lead the state to think there is a
serious risk that he would flee. "
But Brown argued that his cli-
ent's past actions boded against
him skipping bail.
"I think it's important for the
court to understand that Mr. Her-
nandez, along with his wife,,met
with me as far back as November
and retained me in November,"
said Brown. "If Mr. Hernandez
wanted to go to Puerto Rico or
anywhere else, rather than lIay
me money, he certainly had the
means to flee then, well in ad-
vance of these charges. Rather
than fleeing, he wants to address
the charges and clear his good
name."
Brown also asked the judge to
allow his client to have contact
with his children, an action an-
otherjudge barred when Hernan-
dez was charged Jan. 26. Mc
Donald denied that request.
Sheriff Smith said he also was
concerned about Hernandez's

"I am acutely aware of the imi-

Smith. "I would like to express

and every person affected bythle
reprehensible actions of Joh'n'ty

8A BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, FEB. 9, 2012


Clay Electric trustees

approve $5.25 million refund


Clay Electric Cooperative's
board of trustees has announced
a $5.25 million capital credits re-
fund to entitled members of the
co-op who received service be-
tween 1987 and'20 10.
General Manager/CEO Ricky
Davis said the trustees consid-
ered a variety of financial and
economic conditions before de-
ciding to make the refund. This
will be the cooperative's 38th
consecutive refund of capital
credits. Capital credits are one of
Many benefits of belonging to an
electric cooperative, along with
democratic member control.
Clay Electric is a not-for-profit
cooperative, so any profits (mar-
gins) left over at the end of the
year after expenses are paid are
assigned to members on a pro-ra-
ta basis, to be refunded at a later
date as capital credits. Last year,
the co-op refunded $5 million in
capital credits to entitled mem-


bers. These reffnds-help offset
the cost of power for members of
the cooperative.
Current members of the co-
operative who are entitled to a
refund will receive a credit on
their March bills. The refund
is determined by the, amount of
electricity used and by how long
a customer has been a member
of the co-op. The average credit
amount is $19. Members entitled
to a refund but who are no longer
receiving service from the co-op
will be mailed a refund check in
mid-March. The average check
amount for these former custom-
ers is $28.56.
'The refund of capital credits
is a tangible and unique benefit
of receiving service from a not-
for-profit electric cooperative,"
Davis said. "Other utilities that
have margins left over after
expenses are paid return these
funds to stockholders as divi-


dends. Municipal utilities return
their margins to the city govern-
ment coffers."
Capital credits are a source of
equity for cooperatives. Capital
credits enable cooperatives to re-
duce the amount of money they
must borrow for a variety of proj-
ects and purchases. This means
less borrowed money and fewer
interest payments.
Clay Electric Cooperative is
an incorporated, member-owned,
not-for-profit electric power sup-
plier. The co-op was chartered in
1937. Headquartered in Keystone
Heights, Clay Electric Co-op is
one of the largest in the United
States, serving approximately
165,000 members in 14 counties.
The cooperative has six district
offices: Keystone Heights, Or-
ange Park, Lake City, Gaines-
ville, Salt Springs and Palatka.

United Way
offers free
tax prep

Make appo/t/men/
now for Feb.
10-April/3
If you worked in 2011 and
your household made less than
$50,000, United Way of North
Central Florida wants to do your
taxes for free.
It's part of a combined effort
with the IRS to help low- to mod-
erate-income working people
keep more of their refund and not
pay for income tax services.
'This is money that is owed to
the working-class and middle-
class citizens of our communi-
ty," said Dana Newsome Napier,


vice president of communica-
tions with United Way of North
Central Florida. "They just need
to know about it to take advan-
tage of it."
Many households are owed
a significant refund because of
the Earned Income Tax Credit,
a' federal income tax credit for
low- to moderate-income work-
ing people.
But the IRS estimates any-
where from 10 to 20 percent of
eligible families do not claim the
credit, either because they don't
realize, they are eligible or be-
cause their income is so low they
believe they don't have to file a
tax return.
United Way officials are hop-
ing to find more local residents
who are eligible by offering the
free service, known as VITA
(Volunteer Income Tax Assis-
tance).
"The VITA program is about


stabilizing families and keeping
the money in the household,"
Napier said. She emphasized tax
clients will get their refund just
as quickly as if they visit a paid
tax preparer, and will get to keep
all of it- no hidden fees or catch-
es. "You earned this money; you
should get to keep it all."
In the 2010 tax year, in Flori-
da, 1.99 million families claimed
the EITC, totaling $4.51 billion,
an average credit of $2260 per
family. Within Bradford County,
2,672 families claimed the EITC
for a total of $589,177, an aver-
.age credit of $1,422 per family,
according to Internal Revenue
Service statistics calculated by
The Brookings Institute.
Those who qualify for the
EITC could receive a federal
credit of up to $5,751 for a fam-
ily with three children. Eligibil-
ity is based on income, marital
status and number of children.


This is the third year the Unit-
ed Way and the IRS have part-
nered to offer free tax returns
and filing. For the 2010 tax year,
United Way's IRS-trained vol-
unteers prepared 1,279 total tax
returns, resulting in $1.6 million
in refunds for local residents.
In Bradford County, the local
VITA site is at the FloridaWorks
One Stop Center, 819 S. Walnut
St. (Bradford Square Shopping
Center). Representatives will be
there starting Feb. 10 and con-
tinue through April 13, every
Friday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Ap-
pointments are strongly recom-
mended, as walk-ins will only be
accepted if time permits. Resi-
dents should call 211 to schedule
an appointment, and appoint-
merits are already being booked.
Residents can find out more
about the program, make their
appointment and find out what to
bring to the appointment by call-


ing United Way's 24-hour infor-
mation line 211. Information can
also be found at www.getyourE-
ITC.com.
United Way of North Central
Florida is advancing the common
good by creating opportunities
for a better life for all by focusing
on the three key building blocks
of education, income and health.
United Way recruits people and
organizations that bring the pas-
sion, expertise and resources
needed to get things done. Unit-
ed Way of North Central Florida
serves six counties: Alachua,
Bradford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy
and Union. For more information

Brooker man
backs up traffic
on S.R. 16,
arrested for DUI
A deputy arrested a Brooker
man after the suspect drove so
slowly, he created a backup of
around 15 cars on S.R. 16.
Timothy William Crews, 34,
was charged with DUI.
SAccording to a sheriff's office
report, Bradford dispatchers,
around 10 p.m. on Jan 26, sent a
deputy east from Starke on S.R.
16 after Clay County dispatch-
ers reported they had received
numerous complaints about a
red Dodge Durango failing to
maintain a single lane. Deputy
Jered Smith wrote he soon en-
countered the Dodge that was
straddling the white fog line and
was going so slowly that a line
of around 15 cars was trying to
get around the vehicle. After the
-deputy stopped the Dodge, two
jClay deputies arrived and told
ZSmith they had also been look-
ng for the SUV.
Z The driver of the Dodge,
:Crews, told Smith the reason for
:is erratic driving was that he
tvas returning home from work,
and was making cell phone calls
ind going through paperwork
:vhile driving. Smith, however,
~vrote that the driver appeared
5ethargic,thick-tongued,and had
trouble balancing himself after
exiting the car. Smith added that
-tfter he asked the driver for his
driver's license, Crews thumbed
throughh his wallet, passing back
rnd forth over his license seven
~imes before finding the docu-
anent.
SCrews also' told the deputy
le had earlier in the day taken a
pain' killer for shoulder pain.

-Man arrested
ior tire thefts
A Starke man who told an
investigator his truck was wear-
Sng down tread unusually fast
avas arrested for stealing 25 tires
T om a local car repair shop
Loy Donald Readdick Jr., 24,
,was charged with burglary and
grand theft..
SAccording to a police report,
videotape captured images of a
"man stealing the merchandise
from a Temple Avenue repair
'shop during two separate break-
.ins late last year.
SThe owner then got word that
'another tire outlet in the area was
selling the poached merchandise
,but a Starke investigator found
,none of the stolen radials at the
second dealer. The proprietor
denied any knowledge of the
Thefts.
Soon. after Investigator Mark
"Lowery questioned the second
'dealer, the victim received a
phone call from Loy.
"I heard you have me on sur-
veillance," Loy allegedly told
!the victim. "I didn't take the
tires but I can get them back for
Syou."
Lowery then interviewed Loy,
;who told the investigator that
1the front end of his truck was
; not aligned and was wearing out
Spread fast. He then admitted to
Ssiviping the tires but added that
h'e only intended to borrow the
Merchandise and would com-
pensate the business when he

Starke where Lowery recovered
14 of the stolen fires..

Report: Lawtey
chief, sheriff's
dog hauls in
suspect
A Lawtey man wanted for
failing to appear in court es-
caped the grasp of Lawtey Po-
lice Chief Butch Jordan early
Feb. 1, only to be tracked down
later by the sheriff's K-9 unit.
James Martin Anderson, 55,
was arrested for resisting an of-
ficer without violence and for
failure to appear for an earlier
charge of driving with a sus-
pended license.
According to a sheriff's office
report, the chief grabbed An-
derson at Lawtey's Fast Track
convenience store, just after 2
a.m. However the 55-year-old
twisted away from the lawman
and sprinted toward Lawtey
Supermarket. The chief called
for backup. Two deputies soon
arrived and set up a perime-
ter around the area, while Jordan
stayed at the gas station with
Anderson's vehicle to prevent
the suspect from doubling back
and getting away.
Later, deputies brought in
their patrol dog, Bara, which
tracked the suspect to a house
on Park Street, not far from C.R.
225. The dog found Anderson
hiding under the house.

along with police, went to the

fied the items as her own.

Report: man
collecting
money for
funeral, arrested
for battery
A Raiford 'man collecting
money for his mother's funeral
wound up in jail after a confron-
tation with other family mem-
bers, according to a sheriff's of-
fice report.
David Alan Seiberling, 48,
was arrested for battery.
According to an arrest narra-
tive, Seiberling went to his step-
father to demand money for his
mother's funeral. After collect-
ing the money, the Raiford man
grew aggressive toward the rela-
tive, coming face-to-face with
his stepfather. Sieberling's half-
brother then tried to get between
the two men and Seiberling al-
legedly struck the peacemaker in
the face. The relative responded
by throwing the Raiford man
into the side of his truck. Seiber-
ling then got into the truck.
According to Seiberling, the
confrontation started when he
got into an argument with his
half-brother. The Raiford man
told a deputy that the brother
threw him into the side of the
truck, then pushed him to the
ground again after he got back
on his feet. Seiberling added
that his half-brother told him,
"If I didn't have family, I'd kill
you right now."

clerks' fault. They are simply
doing their jobs and they have
no control over the costs.
So why does the price change
so rapidly? The corporate office
dictates the price, those prices are
checked all day long for changes
in what the future delivery prices
are going to be. That's why gas
prices change at all hours of the
day or night. When the price of
gas is-going to go up, the stores
are told to raise their price. By
doing it this way, stores maintain
a higher profit margin on gas
they have already purchased and
maintain a good margin for gas
they will receive.
Prices on gas quickly go up,
but competitors have to decrease
their prices and stores have to
show a decline in average sales
for them to finally lower the
price of gas. This process takes
a lot longer than the raising of
gas prices. Corporations never
want to make less, or it seems
to be fair in their dealings with
there everyday customers. A fair
practice would be to only change
the price when a delivery is
occurring. This would keep the

BY RAMONA PETRY
Special to the Telegraph-Times-
Monitor
SThe price of gas is an ongoing
topic of discussion. Rising
gas prices all over the nation
are contributed to and directly
related to the cost of oil.
SThat is something most people
understand, but what bothers
me about the price of gas is the
variance in other counties in
and around our tri-county area.
Our county gas tax is less than
counties that surround us, yet
gas costs more here.
-',Then let it be mentioned that
the price of oil has risen, and
gas stations everywhere raise
the price on fuel that they have
already purchased-gas that
is already in the tanks on their
lots.
How many stores in Starke do
you see getting a gas delivery
when they raise their prices?
Right. You don't -normally
see them getting a delivery.
The clerks simply get a call or
message telling them to raise the
price because the price of gas is
going to go up. This is not the

Crosby Lake
vigil inspiring
Dear Editor:
We would like to send a thank
you to everyone who supported
the candlelight vigil at Crosby
Lake Cemetery. It was a very
inspiring event with twinkling
luminaria as far as you could
see. And how wonderful it was
to be involved with such caring
children, youth and adults.
Many people were needed to
make the vigil a success and the
community response was espe-
cially awesome.
Again, thanks from the board
of the Crosby Lake Cemetery
Association. Continuing support
can be addressed to CLCA, P.O.

Trail Ridge fest
thanks Tatums
Dear Editor:
On behalf of the Lawtey Trail
Ridge Festival Organization,
I would like to recognize and
thank Tatum Brothers Sawmill
for their generous donation that
made the addition of the covered
deck on the old depot building in
Lawtey a reality.
As native sons of Lawtey, the
Tatum brothers and their fami-
lies contribute in many ways
to improve the quality of life
in Lawtey, a place that is very
dear to their hearts. As they go
about their way, very quietly in
support of the community, they
can be depended upon to assist
ip support of improving their
hometown.
We are thankful that such a


profit margin that the corporation
has determined it wishes to be
at and stop some of the price
gouging that we, as consumers,
are being subjected to.
Here are some great ways to
manage gas costs:
You can car pool, or when
you leave to take the kids to
school, go to the grocery store
and run errands while you are
already out.
Smart phones or phones
that have internet access can
help too, especially for trips
out of town. The website www.
floridastategaspricbs. corn
can help you locate the least
expensive price for where you
are going. As you travel or stop
to get gas, you text the current
gas price and location into the
website, where it is recorded and
made available for others.0
Today, it is reported that gas
in
Ocala is $3.47, Jacksonville
$3.46-$3.48, Middleburg $3.49
and Starke $3.52. The website is
updated immediately and really
helps to get the lowest price for
wherever you are traveling.


Hampton is talked about all
over the country and not in a
good way. Such a shame and all

Most of the people caught on
U.S. 301 were law-abiding citi-
zens who were given no consid-
eration, just told, "Pay the fine.
We need the money to support
our drug enforcement."
Lights were shined in pass-
ing cars at night to see if people
were wearing seatbelts, an inva-
sion of privacy.
I would like to take this time
to congratulate our sheriff and
staff and all others who support-
ed this great cause, to free U.S.
301 from this dreadful plight.
They are all to be commended
for their efforts.
Florida is known as a tourist
state, not as .a state that fleeces
the public. Again, from the peo-
ple of Bradford County, we thank
you Sheriff Gordon Smith.

Candidates
are
questionable
Dear Editor:
The article on Hampton was
very interesting. I have often
wondered when the Hampton
Police Department would be
taken off U.S. 301. It seems that
they were everywhere on that
road.
The paragraph that really
caught my attention was the one
Where Sheriff Gordon Smith
stated that he has two individu-
als running against him for sher-
iff, who are friends of (Hampton
Police Chief) John Hodges.
What are the qualifications
to run for this position? Does
Bradford County run a back-
ground check? I would think
that Bradford would want an
individual who supports the
county in every aspect, is well
respected by everyone, who
keeps his home and property
well maintained, an individual
who has a good work history, is
financially secure, whose fam-
ily works and helps to support
Bradford County and not live
off the system. I have my doubts
about one of the individuals.
This is my opinion, plus a few
questions. I surely hope that the
good people in Bradford Coun-
ty will be very careful for whom
they vote in the next election for

quickly that they're gone, be-
cause the traffic is now back to

presence of the Hampton Police
Department at this intersection,
traveling through it many times
daily, I witnessed many, many
semis and cars running through
the red light because.they were
traveling much too fast to stop. I
also viewed numerous accidents
at this intersection, prior to their
monitoring. Their preswe
slowed the traffic down consid-
erably making this a much safer
highway to travel.
Since Mr. (Danny) Riddick
is so concerned about our area,
'; suggestt he again gather Rep.
Van ,Zant, Rep. Adkins, the
Flori'a Highway Patrol, the De-
paftment of Transportation and
all the other "politicians" he can
find and see what can be done to


make U.S. 301 a safer highway
for the business owners and lo-
cals who use it on a daily basis..
U.S. 301 has interstate traffic
driving at interstate speeds with
virtually no exit lanes. Withl
traffic behind you traveling 70
mph or more, it's very danger-
ous to slow down and turn into a
business or home. These posted
speed limits are determined-by
the Department of Transporta-
tion as the "maximum speed" it
is safe to travel on this highway..
To ensure the safety of all of us,
these limits should be enforced
by all law enforcement agen-
cies. It's their job.
It's a sad day when politicians
get together to stop another law
enforcement agency from en-.
forcing the laws of the state,,
of Florida. How can you even
defend people who blatantly
ignore posted speed limits, put-,
ting everyone on the highway in
danger? Who then complain be-
cause they got caught and have,
to pay a fine? But to threaten
to remove a city charter that's
beerdri place since 1927 really
tops it all.
What a bad example you are..
setting. Complain enough to the.
right people and you can stop
law enforcement from doing,
thejr job. Better than that, you,
can have them removed from
the area.
Shame on you all.

The top four wrestlers in each

Will Collier in 2:50 to win the

"A lot (of wrestlers) don't have

"As a second-year wrestler,

BHS running back Clayton


to attend Reedley College


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
It will require a trip across
the country, but Bradford High
School senior Dexter Clayton
will get the chance to continue
his football career and further
his education after signing a let-
ter of intent on Feb. 1 to play for
Reedley College, a junior col-
lege in Reedley, Calif.
"It's a wonderful feeling,"
said Clayton, a running back
who rushed for 855 yards and
10 touchdowns this past season
for Bradford.
Traveling so far away from


home does not seem to bother
Clayton.
"I'm a grown man," he said.
"I think I can handle it."
Bradford head coach Derek
Chipoletti said it's a good op-
portunity for Clayton to succeed
on the football field and in the
classroom, and then move on to
a bigger school. Chipoletti said
a player he coached at Flem-
ing Island High School-Eric
Johnson-went to Reedley and
is now playing for UNLV. An-
other player Chipoletti coached
went from Reedley to Newberry
College in South Carolina.


"We've sent kids there in the
past. They end up with their AA
and enrolled in a four-year col-
lege, Chipoletti said, adding,
"(Reedley's) been historically
a place we'vb sent guys we
feel are good football players
and need to get some academic
.work done."
Clayton said that his main fo-
cus is improving his grades so
that he can succeed and move
on to a four-year school.

"During his free time, he has
committed himself and staff to
the Bradford County Relay for
Life, and he supports our youth
through major sponsorship of the
Kiwanis basketball tournament,
just to name a few," Vaughan
said. "He's a Golden Santa spon-
sor as well with the Shop with a
Cop event and participates in the
Christmas parade.
"You can just get a sense of
the huge footprint he leaves in
a positive way for our commu-
nity."
In introducing Potapowoas the
Eugene L. Matthews Citizen of
the Year, Vaughan described a
man who is plenty busy-Pota-
pow also owns the McDonald's
restaurants in Baldwin, Inter-
lachen and Palatka-but who
doesn't let that stop him from
helping the community in some
way.
"Though he spreads himself
thin over such a broad region,
he always finds time to show his
support for the community, or-
ganizations and children of this
region," Vaughan said. "I can
vouch for that. He is so involved
at so many levels.
"He's one of those guys,
though, who likes to do it behind
the scenes. That speaks so well
to the type of person that he is."
Vaughan talked of how Pota-

pow is one of the main sponsors
of the annual Lake Area Mc-
Donald's Christmas Basketball
Tournament, which raises funds'
for the Bradford High School
basketball program, and is a
Golden Santa ($1,000 or more)
sponsor of the Starke Police
Department's Shop with a Cop
program.
The Starke Police Department
has benefitted from Potapow's
generosity in several ways. He
donated funds to the Starke
Police Department to assist in
the purchase of vehicles during
budget cuts and also bought the
department a canine.
Potapow also supports the
annual Santa Fe College Boots-
N-BBQ event and took part in a
Climb for Cancer fundraiser last
year in which he climbed Mount
Kilimanjaro.
"Every time you see the gold-
en arches in this region, please
know that the guy who stands
behind them is one heck of a
great person," Vaughan said.
Robinson and George received
the Pat Farnsworth Workforce
and North Florida Regional
Chamber of Commerce Volun-
teer awards, respectively.
Robinson was not in atten-
dance, but Vaughan said of her,
"She has served so well and
dedicatedly on our workforce
board for many years and has
also been involved with Florida
Works and many other functions
in our community."
In introducing George,
Vaughan talked of her efforts in.
caring for and rescuing animals.
"It's unbelievable what she,
does with our different rescue:
organizations and the animal
shelter here in Bradford Coun-
ty," Vaughan said. "She's got a
wonderful heart."
The event also included a rec-
ognition of outgoing chamber
board members Vaughan and
Frank Patterson, while Judge

Union girls
lose in
semifinals to
Newberry

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Top seed Newberry held the
Union County girls' basketball
team to two points in the first
quarter and led by 22 at the half
en routesto defeating the Tigers
50-18 in the semifinals of the
District 7- IA tournament on Feb.
3 in Newberry.
Newberry (24-2) would go on
to cap a perfect season against
district competition, defeating
Baldwin 64-33 on Feb. 4 to claim
the district championship. The
Panthers will host Crescent City
in a regional semifinal game on
Tuesday, Feb. 14, while district
runner-up Baldwin (15-9) will
travel to play Wildwood.
The Tigers (6-15) were led by
Teyona Jenkins' five points.


Score by Quarter
UCHS: 2 8 3
NHS: 16 16 11


5-18
7-50


Uqion scoring (18): Keyambre
Cobb 3, Shakeylia Griffin 4, Jen-
kins 5, Chelsea Roberts 4, Court-
ney Walsh 2. 3-pointers: Cobb.
Free throws: 1-9.

Earlier result:

UCHS 52 Dixie Co. 35
Jenkins and Courtney Walsh
each scored 10 points as the Ti-
gers advanced to their semifinal
matchup against Newberry by
defeating Dixie Coutny 52-35 in
a quarterfinal game on Jan. 31.
The Tigers led by four at the
half before outscoring the Bears
18-3 in the third quarter.
Keyambre Cobb and Chelsea
Roberts scored nine and eight
points, respectively.


CLAYTON
Continued from 8B

do what I have to do," he said.
On the field, Clayton, who
is 5-8, 180, is a tough, strong
runner who more than holds his
own against bigger players.
"He's going to get down-
hill and run through tackles,"
Chipoletti said. "He's extreme-
ly strong for his size."
Chipoletti said the main
concern coaches have with
undersized running backs is
their ability to pass protect, but
the Bradford coach said there
should be no such concern with
regard to Clayton.
"I've seen him do it all year,
and I've seen him do it against
bigger competition in this
(Florida-Georgia Border Wars)
all-star game wejust played in,"
Chipoletti said. "He will stick
his hat in anybody's chin-it
doesn't matter who it is.
"I think he'll be successful."
What will also help Clayton
be successful is his ability as
a pass catcher out of the back-
field-he caught 32 passes for
377 yards and four touchdowns
this past season-and his abil-
ity to learn the nuances of the
game.
"What impresses me about
Dexter is his knowledge of the
game," Chipoletti said.
Clayton said he doesn't ex-
pect-a tough transition to the
collegiate game, though he ad-
mitted he expects the game to
be faster-paced. The main ad-
justment he wants to make is to
become a better team leader.
"I've been working on it
these past few years," he said.
.He'll be leading a new
team-one that's all the way
in California. He can't wait to
take the field for the first time
as a Reedley Tiger.
"It's a feeling I can't wait
for," Clayton said. "It's a feel-
ing I'm ready for."

Strassberger,' who was 3 for
4 from the foul line in thethird
quarter, also finished with six
points.
Williston (15-8) traveled to
Ocala this past Tuesday to play
District 6 champ Trinity Catholic
in a regional quarterfinal game,
while District 5 champ Santa Fe
(14-11) hosted South Sumter.

BHS
Continued from 8B

Tyra Carter ended the drought
when she stole a Bradford in-
bounds pass and scored, spark-
ing a 14-4 Raiders run that put
them up 52-37.
Griner scored all but two of
her team-high 21 points in the
second half.
The first half was quite a strug-
gle for the Tornadoes, who were
cold from the field and careless
with the ball. Bradford (7-13)
turned the ball over 15 times in
the first half and made one of 13


field-goal attempts in the second
quarter, which didn't help cut
into a double-digit deficit. Ni-
cole Jenkins had the lone field
goal and scored five points in
the quarter. The rest of the team
combined scored four points.
Santa Fe led 30-17 at the half
and scored the first five points
of the third..quarter. Griner made
a 3-pointer and then scored on
a rebound putback, which was
later followed by a free throw
by Alagria Chandler. Griner had
another rebound score before
knocking down two 3-pointers
to pull the Tornadoes to within
37-31 heading into the final


Imagine a hearing aid that
automatically adapts to your
surroundings and reflects your
specific lifestyle. Imagine a hearing


quarter.
Bradford turned the ball over
on consecutive possessions and
missed its first three field-goal
attempts of the fourth quarter.
Santa Fe made two free throws
before Chandler was able to grab
an offensive rebound and sink
a jumper to make it a six-point
game again before the Raiders
started pulling away.
Santa Fe (14-11) went on to
defeat Williston 45-33 on Feb.
4 to win the district champion-
ship. The Raiders hosted South
Sumter in a regional quarterfinal
game this past Tuesday, while
Williston (15-8) traveled to Oc-


ala to play Trinity Catholic.

Study by Cambridge University in England Reveals Key Answer


Until recently, there was no
practical way to identify dead
regions of hearing cells in the
ear. However, a new British
developed procedure using
standard test equipment now
allows for identification of dead
hearing cell regions. The study
suggests that the presence or
absence of dead regions may
have serious implications in the
fitting of hearing aids.
This research reveals that
amplifying dead cells is a
mistake which will result in
poorer speech understanding in
noise.
A new type of digitally
programmable microcircuit
is now being released from
Audibel -the world's leader in
nanoScience technology that
can be programmed to bypass
the dead cells. As a result, the


patient's usable hearing cells
receive amplification, thereby
improving speech understanding
in noise.
We are able to achieve
maximum speech understanding
by frequency shaping this new
hearing aid. The results have
been phenomenal. These new
products come in all shell sizes,
including the smallest digital
models.
During its release, Audibel
Hearing Center is offering
this new frequency-shaping
hearing instrument On a 30-day
satisfaction trial.
"Your satisfaction is absolutely
guaranteed" Tom Guillot of
Audibel Hearing Center said.
Call the Audibel Hearing
Center nearest you for a no-
obligation appointment.
