Still no deal on school salaries


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Though they've.inched closer to
a compromise, employees and the
school district have not yet agreed on
a new union contract.
increased pay is still the sticking
point. Teachers and other employees
represented by the Bradford Educa-
tion Association are in their fourth
year without a pay increase, including
the step increases scheduled in the ex-
isting pay plan.
School district representatives par-
ticipating in the bargaining sessions

the city of Starke for allegedly
overcharging electric custom-

fer when both sides met again on Feb.
8. The board originally offered two
steps up the pay scale for eligible em-
ployees for the steps missed in 2009
and 2010, plus a one-time bonus of
$350.
This was a problem for the union
for a couple of reasons. The pay scale
itself was not being adjusted, meaning
those already at the top of their pay
class-including the district's most
senior educators -would be receiving
no increase beyond the bonus. Also,
because the bonus was non-reoccur-
ring, it would not increase compefisa-
tion beyond this year or add anything
toward an employee's retirement.


The union wanted a deal that added
money to the salary schedule to poten-
tially increase employees' compensa-
tion for each additional year of service
to the district.
The district heard that criticism and
converted the bonus to a 1 percent
across the board raise, but that was
still below the 3 percent sought by the
union, which has criticized the district
for growing its fund balance at the ex-
pense of its employees, who have not
only gone without a raise but are also
now forced to contribute out of pocket
toward retirement.

Redistricting

ball in

county's

court

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Bradford County School Board
made it clear Monday night that the
redistricting ball is now in the county
commission's court.
Having selected a plan that restores
District 1 as a minority majority dis-
trict and keeps the population differ-
ences in the remaining districts below
10 percent, the school board's final
goal would be have a map on which its
political districts align with the county
commission's.
It cannot do that, however, unless
the commission approves one of the
maps recommended by the redistrict-
ing committee or develops another
map that addresses population differ-
ences.
The commission has adopted a map
that preserves District 1 as a minor-
ity majority district, but stops there,
leaving large discrepancies in district
population.
School Board Member Vivian
Chappell said since the commission
made no move to address district
population after the joint workshop on
Feb. 6, she suggested the school board
leave things as they are and stick by
the map they chose.
School Board Member Stacey
Creighton said she heard three of five
county commissioners at the workshop
say they shared the school board's
concern about a legal challenge. Even
that majority did not move to amend
the commission's prior map selection.

Alachua

surcharge

waiver to

expire

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

SOn March 1, Alachua County I ill
begin paying a $2.35 per ton sur-
charge on the waste it delivers to the
New River Regional Landfill.
After an 18-month postponement of
the surcharge, board members of the
New River Solid Waste Association
are ready to begin collecting the ad-
ditional fees as they believe Alachua
County hasn't made enough progress
toward control of its waste stream.
The landfill and Alachua County
have both suffered the financial con-
sequences of a hauler in Alachua
County bypassing the county's trans-
fer station. Both government's lost
tipping fee revenue when waste was
diverted. The landfill's losses totaled
more than $1 million.
Sally Palmi from Alachua County
Public Works said the postponement
of the surcharge has allowed the coun-
ty to be more competitive and pass
savings along to its customers. This
has kept the waste stream flowing to
New River while the county works on
plans to cement flow control, includ-
ing the conversion of its transfer sta-
tion to a waste recovery center that lo-
cal haulers will be required to use.
The board was willing to consider
a further an additional postponement
of the surcharge if progress \\ as made
toward extending the existing contract
with Alachua. The surcharge \\as in-
cluded in Alachua County s contract
as a revenue source to replace disposal
capacity the county will consume in
the landfill through the end of 2018.

tion of that revenue \\ill ha\e to take

SRWMD proposing WoA

wetlands mitigation project ;/ Q


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Suwannee River Water
Management District hasn't yet
convinced the city of Starke to
expand an Alligator Creek proj-
ect the two had planned to help
the Florida Department of Trans-
pontation mitigate wetlands it
will disturb when constructing
the Starke bypass.
The water management district
was already developing a project
that came to be called the Ed-
wvard Bottomlands Project since
it would utilize city property be-
hind Edwards Road ballpark to
capture an excessive amount of
sediment currently being carried
by the creek to nearby lakes.
Starke was obliged to par-
ticipate since its dredging of the
creek a few years ago was said
to be largely responsible for the
increased erosion in the creek.
In addition to the use of the land
behind the park, the city had to
agree to periodically remove sed-
imerit from the trap.
The cost to the city would de-
pend on how much sediment was
being removed and how often. .
SRWMD's Pat Webster told
the city commission Feb. 7 the
district is now looking at an ex-
pansion of the project that would
further rehabilitate wetlands
on city-owned property further
south of the park..
It would also involve the dis-
triet acquiring, some privately
owned land next to KOA. With
that property, portions of five
parcels owned by the city and
land owned by the district, the
district could create a wetlands
conservation corridor that would
mitigate the 60-85 acres of wet-
lands DOT is expected to impact


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor- --

The Starke Police Department
last-week honored one of its ser-
geants who apprehended two
murder suspects and took part in
the'additional capture of an ac-
cused kidnapper.
On Jan. 6, Sgt. Paul King re-
ceived information that a suspect
who went by the street name of
Rat" had robbed a Union Coun-
ty couple. The sergeant quickly
linked the street name to a con-
tact he had arrested before. In
addition King recalled where the
man lived and within the hour
had in custody two men now
facing murder, arson and other
charges.
SSeven days later on Jan. 12,
King was following up on a kid-
napping and assault investiga-
tion, when he got behind a white
Ford F-250. The driver of that
vehicle, Theodrick L. "Ruger"
Avinger, 19, of Lake City led the
sergeant on a chase that reached
speeds of 100 mph on S.R. 100
west into Union County, where
deputies stopped the truck.
During a Feb. 8, ceremony,
Capt. Barry Warren read a cita-
tion from Chief Jeff Johnson, re-
counting King's actions.
Sgt. King's prompt action
provided additional witnesses
and crucial evidence for Union
County investigators," he said of
the Jan. 6 incident.




Uniform sale at hospital
There will be a uniform and
.shoe sale at the Shands Starke
atrium featuring many brands on
Tuesday, Feb. 2-1, from 7 a.m. to
5 p.m. Major credit cards accept-
ed and payroll deduction is avail-
able for eligible employees. The
sale is sponsored by the Shands
Starke Auxiliary, and the pro-
ceeds will benefit the hospital.

Concerned Citizens of Brad-
ford Cfounty will hold a Valen-
tines Day themed teen night on
Friday, Feb. 17, from 8 p.m. to
midnight at the RJE gymnasium

sion is $3. Volunteers are wel-
come!


when the bypass is eventually
constructed.
The district is responsible for
providing wetlands mitigation
for DOT, and Webster said the
Alligator Creek flood plain was'
the most logical location. The
original dredging of Alligator
Creek for storm water diversion
many years ago altered the his-
toric flood plain, so the goal is to
move some of the water through
old channels and remove exotic
plant species in order to restore
the health of the wetlands.
If the district is able to acquire
the property next to KOA, that
would put the entire corridor un-
der public ownership and assist
the district greatly in helping out
DOT, Webster said. The acquired
parcel would eventually be deed-
ed to the city, and the city would
own nearly the entire length of
the flood plain corridor.
Webster was asking Starke to
enter an agreement to allow the
wetlands mitigation on its prop-
Serty. The hydrologic restoration
on the. Edwards bottomlands
property would still move for-
ward, but it not large enough to
absorb the mitigation require-
ments.
The cost of the mitigation proj-
ect would be covered by DOT,
with design and construction car-
ried out by the water management
district. Starke's obligation under
this expanded project begins and
ends with granting permission
for the use of its property.
A prior financial commitment
for the city under Edwards Bot-
tomlands agreement for the peri-
odic removal of sediment would
still stand, but that could even be
funded by the district, at least for
a few years, Webster said.
One of the city's main ques-


tions was how much funding
would be available to offset its
maintenance costs, which is
something Webster won't know
until DOT applies for its envi-
ronmental resource permit and
begins moving funding to the
mitigation category. The amount
of money dedicated to mitigation
will be based on the number of
impacts, Webster said.
Starke Attorney Terry Brown
asked if it wouldn't be in the best
interest to sell the bottomlands
property to DOT and let DOT
incur any future maintenance
costs associated with reducing

the flow of sediment through the
creek. Webster said those main-
tenance responsibilities fall to
the city because of its dredging
of the creek.
Brown also wanted to know if
DOT would be willing to reim-
burse the city in the future for the
use of the flood plain corridor as
a wetlands mitigation area. Web-
ster said once DOT provides the
money to the water management
district for the cost of the mitiga-
tion project, then DOT is no lon-
ger involved in the project. The
district is responsible for carry-
ing out the project and maintain-


Learn to properly
preserve food
The Bradford County Exten-
sion is offering a food preserva-
tion program on Friday, Feb. 17,
from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the
office located at 2266 N. Temple
Ave. in Starke.
The program will emphasize
proper canning techniques. Cost
is $7 per person to cover sup-
plies, but attendees will receive
freshly made jam, the latest food


ing the area for a period of five
years to ensure the success of the
project. Those maintenance costs
would not impact the city.
The city would only be respon-
sible for the sediment removal it
already agreed to in the original
Edwards Bottomland project,
and as Webster said, he could
probably find money to assist
the city during the five years the
district would be maintaining the
wetlands conservation easement.
. Webster said the first step to
proceeding 'wvas making sure
Starke :would be a cooperative
partner. He left the meeting with-

preservation information and
door prizes.
Please register by Tuesday,
Feb. 14, by calling 904-966-


out that assurance, however. City
commissioners didn't have an
understanding of what was being
required of them, so Webster will
return when he has more infor-
mation on the funding DOT will
have for mitigation.
The wetlands mitigation proj-
ect is separate from DOT acqui-
sition of right of way to construct
the bypass. Some of the required
land does belong to the city, and:
DOT will have to negotiate to
obtain that right of way.

Chappell
announces
retirement at
the end of term
To the citizens of District 4,
at this time I would like to an-
nounce that I will not be seeking
re-election for the school board
position.
I would like to thank everyone
for their support for the last 20
years that you have allowed me
to represent you and your chil-
dren on the board.
For the last 20 years, I have
been blessed having the oppor-
tunity to know the wonderful
people of District 4 and the citi-
zens of Bradford County. I have
enjoyed our many conversations


Vivian Chappell


and glasses of iced tea that we


have shared over the years.
Even though I will no longer
bean elected leader of this com-
munity, I will continue to be an
active member as a citizen with
our schools and board. I ask that
you research and consider care-
fully whom you select to fill the
District 4 seat. As I have shown
you, your school board member
needs to be active and available
to the citizens and not have their
own agenda coming into office.
Being fair and thinking of all of
the students in the county is the
board member's responsibility
regardless of what district they.
represent.
So with heavy heart, 1 thank
you and wish you good luck.

Oelrich, Stearns wage fight over residency


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns' an-
nouncement that he would try to
hold on to his representation of
this area drew fire from anoppo-
nent in the newly drawn congres-
sional district, Florida state Sen.
Steve Oelrich.
Oelrich also wantsto represent
District 3, which includes all of
Bradford and Union as well as all
or portions of 11 other counties,
including Stearns home county
of Marion. It does not, however
include Ocala, the city Stearns
called home when he represented
this area when it was part of the
Sixth Congressional District.
Stearns announced last week
he would establish residency and
run in District 3, saying it includ-
ed nearly 70 percent of the con-
stituehts he currently represents.
Oelrich accused Stearns of
abandoning his constituents in
Marion County after 24 years. He
told the Gainesville Sun Stearns'
moving to District 3 was merely
an attempt to extend his long
political career. Oelrich called
Stearns an "insider" and said
Washington was in sad shape be-


cause of insiders acting for their
own personal gain. "
Oelrich is also no stranger
to the area. As state senator the
'former Alachua County sheriff
represents many of the counties
contained in the Third Congres-
sional District. He bragged that
he had lived in the area fornmore
than 35 years, while Stearns, who
was born and educated in Wash-
ington, D.C., has lived there for
almost 50 years.
Stearns didn't comment for the
Sun story, but Friends of Cliff
Steams Campaign Manager Ja-
son Teaman later issued a press
release questioning Oelrich's
residency. He notes the Sun ar-
ticle introduced Oelrich as a resi-
dent of Cross Creek.
"It is interesting that Mr.
Oelrich would complain about
Stearns having a home five miles
from new District 3 when Mr.
Oelrich himself has two homes in
Alachua County, one of them in
Cross Creek located in Rep. Cor-
rine Brown's present congressio-
nal district and in the district in
which she is running," Teaman
wrote.
According to Teaman, Oel-
rich listed Cross Creek as his


residence on financial disclosure
forms and he speculated that Oel-
rich had been voting as a Cross
Creek resident.
"So the question he needs to
answer is if he's going to move
his residence into District 3?"
Teaman asked. Both Oelrich and
Stearns have multiple homes he
said in defense of his candidate.
According to Alachua Cpun-
ty property records, Oelrich's
Gainesville home is identified as
his homestead, but he did vote
in the precinct where the Cross
Creek home is located. .
STeaman went on to question
Oelrich's,prior statement of De-
cember 2011 that he didn't in-
tend to run against an incumbent
like Stearns.
"Is his word his bond? It ap-
pears not!" Teaman wrote.
Of course, Oelrich declared
his intention to run in the newly
drawn District 3 prior to Steams'
announcement.
Gainesville Sun writer Bill
Thompson notes the residency
fight is good political fodder
by has no legal basis since the.
U.S. Constitution only requires
a member of Congress to live in
the state they represent.

School Board Chairman Ran-
dy Jones said his board selected
one of the three plans that met
goals adopted by the redistricting
'committee, adding he cannot see
why the school board should do
,anything differently.
"What we're doing in my
opinion is the right thing to do,"
Jones said. He said people should
.be able to vote for school board
-members and county commis-
sioners in the same district,'but
he added he wasn't willing to go
"beyond the law" to make that
happen.
A prominent concern remains
possible legal challenge if the
county redistricts without bal-
ancing district populations.
Jones said he was satisfied
,vith the school board's decision
to adopt one of the three recom-
mended redistricting plans.

said he was-open to considering
other options that would work for
both boards, but not options that
didn't meet the same criteria.
"I do not want to be part of
anything that's going to ,in any-
way cause litigation if we can
help it," Alvarez said.
Jones said the maps placed be-
fore them had been recommended
by citizens after months of study
and if something different is pro-
posed by county commissioners,
he wouldn't entertain it unless,


again, it meets the criteria.
Redistricting was not on the
county commission's published
agenda for Feb. 16.

Few contests for local offices


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Some familiar faces have filed
to run for office in Bradford
County, but only two contests
have emerged so far.
The latest is in the race for
superintendent of schools. Ter-
ricena Kittles has filed to run as
a Democrat against Republican
incumbent Beth Moore, who is
seeking a second term.
Also seeking another term is
Sheriff Gordon Smith, an incum-
bent Democrat being challenged
by Democrat James Harris and
Republican Bryan Waldorf.
Supervisor of Elections Terry
Vaughan, Property Appraiser
Jimmy Alvarez and Clerk of
Courts Ray Norman have all
filed to run again, but Vicky
Thompson Miller has filed to run
for the tax collector's office. So
far, incumbent Teila Pearson has
not declared.
Each of the above candidates
is running as a Democrat.


Other incumbents who have
filed to run include County Com-
missioner Eddie Lewis in Dis-
trict 5 and School Board Mem-
ber Randy Jones in District 3. On
Monday, School Board Member
Vivian Chappell announced she
would not seek another term, but
Braxton Britt Jr. has filed to run
for the District 4 school board
seat.
The school board seats are
nonpartisan, but Lewis, is run-
ning as a Democrat.
Entries into local races can be
tracked at www.bradfordelec-
tions.com.
Qualifying week for county
offices is from noon on Monday,
June 4, to noon on Friday, June 8.
Those who will run by paying the
required qualifying fee will pay
*it during this time. Candidates
running by petition will have to
file with the elections office, then
have the required number of sig-
natures submitted by May 7.
For more information on filing
to run for office, visit the super-


visor of elections office or www.
bradfordelections.com.
The primary is scheduled for
Aug. 14, and the general election
is on Nov.6, although state legis-
lators are considering moving the
primary to Aug. 21.
Florida is a closed primary
state, which means only voters
registered to a particular party
will be eligible to vote in that
party's primaries. If multiple
parties have a candidate running
for a particular office, that race
will be decided in the general
election. Nonpartisan races can
be decided at the primary level,
however, if a single candidate
receives more than 50 percent of
the vote.
Declared candidates may sub-
mit a brief article announcing.
their run along with a photo for
no charge to editor@bctelegraph.
com. Entries need to be submitted
by Monday at 5 p.m. the week of
publication. No free submissions
will be accepted after Monday,
June 11, at 5 p.m.


SWAT says spit out that tobacco


The local Students Working
Against Tobacco program and
the Bradford County Tobacco-
Free Partnership will join forces
to take a stand against tobacco
companies and the industry's at-
tempt to entice teens and young
adults with taste-friendly tobacco
products.
In honor of the Great Ameri-
can Spit Out, the student-led or-
ganization will host a flavored
tobacco reception in the commu-
nity room at Capital City Bank
in Starke on Tuesday, Feb. 21,
between 5 and 6:30 p.m. At this
reception, SWAT members will
extend their knowledge of the
problem with candy-flavored
tobacco and advocate for a ban
on the sale of flavored tobacco
products.
This event will be held for
community members to become
more aware of the tobacco in-
dustry's imprint within this com-
munity. An array of photos from
local tobacco vendors will be on
display to exhibit, exactly what
type of flavored tobacco prod-
ucts are available within Brad-
ford County.
Community members will also
be able to smell the flavors of
products that mimic candy. All


community members are invited
to attend.
The Great Ameiican Spit Out
is a national tobacco observance
during "Through with Chew
Week" held to address the dan-
gerous health risks associated
with spit tobacco and to encour-
age users to quit.
There are two Students Work-
ing Against Tobacco chapters in
Bradford County. One chapter is
at Bradford High School and the
other is located at Bradford Mid-
dle School. SWAT Advisors are
Sally Crane and John Tinsier.
For help making the decision
tobe "Through With Chew" or to
quit smoking; you can contact the
Florida Quitline to receive free
telephone counseling at 1-877-U
CAN NOW (1-877-822-6669) or
the Suwannee River Area AHEC
for free, local cessation classes at
1-866-341-2730.
Both organizations offer free
nicotine replacement therapies
(gum, patches, lozenges) while,
supplies last.

tion or youth wishing to join the

ing Against Tobacco should con-

DEAL
Continued from 1A

The labor negotiator represent-
ing the district,Jerry Coplon,said
the district's offer represented a
raise of a little more than 5 per-
cent for employees who qualified
for both steps on top of the ad-
ditional I percent.
However, the second offer did
not include any more money than
was included in the first. Coplon
called it the district's best and
last offer, an offer only made
possible because the district was
receiving more then $577,000 in
additional money for unanticipat-
qd enrollment. The school board
has promised all of that money to
employees.
BEA negotiator George Bo-
wen said that is still just a one
percent raise for those at the top
of the schedule, who he guessed
represent about 25 percent of the
total workforce. (The district lat-
er said it was 23 employees out
of 500, or less than 5 percent.)
The salary schedule was last up-
dated in the 2008 school year.
Bowen pointed out the offer
included no additional money,
from the "fund balance." Ac-
cording to the district, that mon-
ey is being used to offset budget
cuts, including the more than
$2.4 million the district lost this
school year. District Finance Di-
rector Julee Tinsler said the fund
balance at the end of this school
year wouldn't be nearly as much
as it was the year before. The
prison closure could also im-
pact student enrollment, robbing
funding from the district.
Bowen said this talk sounded
familiar. This makes four years
of hearing about the district be-
ing "near financial calamity,"
talk that has justified withhold-
ing the step pay increases already
in the contract, he said.
Coplon said the district would
maintain the fund balance it is
expected to maintain. Bowen
countered that the board wasn't
being required to maintain in the
fund'balance more than $366,000
saved by-in its words-being
frugal.
Although Coplon said it was
the best and last offer, Bowen
wasn't deterred, saying some-
thing wasn't right when tihe ftid
balance grows at the same time
employees are told they should
be glad to have a job because
the district is barely making it
through the year.
The district's offer was also
linked to a reduction in the num-
ber of days before a teacher's
first observation for evaluation.
The union couldn't have the raise
without agreeing to this stipula-
tion, Coplon said. Bowen said it
was almost insulting.
The difference between the 1
percent the board was offering
and the 3 percent the union was
requesting was around $65,000
for this year since it would be
retroactive to Jan. 1 instead of
July. While increasing the salary
schedule and moving employ-


ees up the ladder would impact
the board's budget in subsequent
years, Bowen said that is mitigat-
ed by workforce turnover.
"We can get this done and be-
hind us given the little that sepa-
rates the two proposals," Bowen
said.
Coplon was less certain about
the future impact to the board, but
Bowen said that was just more of
the same "doom and gloom" pre-
dictions from the district.
"After a while that story just
kind of gets old," he said.
The employees understand the
district's funding and enrollment
difficulties, Bowen said, but they
also want to know their com-
pensation is top priority when
the budget is built each year, not
based on what's left over.
After breaking for a second
time, Coplon and the district
came back to the table emphasiz-
ing the school board's apprecia-
lion for its employees but saying
all of the money they were autho-
rized to offer had been "exhaust-
ed" in the deal put forth.
"I understand your offer and
I wish we could accommodate
it, but we will not be able to this
year given the uncertainty of the
future," he said.
A session that included some
heated exchange over interrup-
tions and laughter from 4 room
nearly full of employees when
the district's points were ques-
tioned ended without resolution.
The next session is scheduled for
3.30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
In the meantime, BEA ap-
pealed directly to the school
board on Feb. 13. BEA acting
President Judy Dukes talked
about how close the two sides
are to reaching a deal. She said
the union doesn't understand
how the fund balance can grow
if the district has no money, and
budgets for other items have in-
creased as well.
"We feel we've been very pa-
tient, working very hard with the
board and going as we have for
the last few years. We kind of go
kicking and screaming, but we're
kicking and screaming harder
now because*it just is getting to
be very, very difficult for your
employees," Dukes said. "We're
just so darn close that we do feel
if we try a little harder that we
can do this" '
Adding just 1 percent to the
salary schedule means that those
at the top and bottom of the sal-
ary schedule would see very
little difference, she said. Asking
for 3 percent is really just offset-
ting the state-imposed retirement
contribution.
Teacher Courtney Clemmons,
introduced as the next union
president, said a deal is needed
to boost employee morale, which
she said is very low.
"This would do a lot to help
boost that morale," Clemons
said. "Teachers feel like saying
thank you just isn't enough any-
more."


NRSWA
Continued from 1A

place over a longer period of
time.
NRSWA board members
didn't feel enough work on a
contract extension had been ac-
complished in the month since
they had originally discussed the
matter.
Landfill Executive Director
Darrell O'Neal said Alachua
County has a lot of wheels that
take time to turn. Palmi said a
lot of homework is needed to
determine how much capacity
Alachua County will need in the
future and how much the land-
fill will be able to provide. She
predicted regular meetings with
O'Neal would be needed to plan
for the future.
She asked that the board con-
tinue to waive the surcharge in
the meantime.
Board members were not in-
terested. Baker County Commis-


sioner Michael Crews said in the
four weeks since the last board
meeting, Palmi and O'Neal had
only met once.
"I wonder if the wheels would
spin faster if we just allow the re-
duction to expire as scheduled of
March I?" he asked. He said it
doesn't appear Alachua County
is taking the matter seriously.
Palmi said a 10-year extension
is a $50 million commitment
from Alachua County. I cannot
be entered into without consid-
eration.
"I don't think you make those
decisions in 30 days," she said,
but Crews said it's been 18
months since the waiver was first
granted.
NRSWA members agreed the
waiver should expire. Palmi said
Alachua County had budgeted
for that possibility and would
pass the cost along to its custom-
ers.

on Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning
at 6 p.m. at the Woman's Club.
The event is planned in order to
fund a replacement roof for this
century old building.
The $50 tickets are limited
to 100 guests and will provide
dinner, drinks, prizes and an
auction-all Paris-themed. It is
hoped the community will come
together to protect this building
from the age-related roof prob-
lems and that this idea will appeal
to so many in the community who
have attended events throughout
their lives there or who have had
their own memorable events take
place there such as shows and
wedding receptions.
Tickets may be obtained from
any member of the Woman's
Club, or contact Ellen Roberts at
904-964-6870.

A chance to wear red, promote heart health


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
ReQiona1l News/Sports Editor
There are several steps to take
to ensure you maintain a healthy
heart, but perhaps one you
haven't thought of is maintain-
ing a better and consistent rela-
tionship with your primary care
physician.
That was Dr. Joelle Innocent-
Simon's message to those who
attended the annual Shands
Starke Regional Medical Cen-
ter/Altrusa International Inc. of
Starke Heart Health Luncheon,
which was held at Shands Starke
on Wear Red Day (Feb. 3) in
observance of heart health in
women.
Indeed, many who attended
the event were wearing red,
including guest speakers Inno-
cent-Simon, a family practitio-
ner with Shands Starke Medical
Group, and Dr. Jamie Conti, a
cardiologist and chief of Shands
HealthCare's Department of
Medicine, Division of Cardio-
vascular Medicine.
Innocent-Simon presented
some statistics that showed just
how serious heart disease is.
It is the leading cause of death
in women, and more than one
in three women are living with
heart disease. That includes ap-
proximately half of the African-
American female population and
34 percent of the white female
population.
"Every minute in the United


States, someone's wife, mother,
daughter or sister dies from heart
disease, stroke or other forms of
cardiovascular disease," Inno-
cent-Simon said.
Heart disease-related death
rates in men have declined
steadily in the past 25 years,
whereas the rates for women
have not, Innocentr-Simon said.
After presenting the facts,
though, Innocent-Simon said,
"I'm not really telling you any-
thing you don't already know or
anything you couldn't Google."
So what could Innocent-Si-
mon share with her audience
that maybe they hadn't thought
of? How about how important
the role of the primary care phy-
sician is when it comes to pre-
venting or treating cardiovas-
cular disease along with other
medical issues?
Innocent-Simon said people
oftentimes take better care of
their vehicles or their pets than
they do themselves. Regular vis-
its to a primary care physician,
however, will not only help pre-
vent or better treat diseases, but
make sense in terms of dollars
and cents.
"It's a lot less expensive for
you to see one of us when you're
healthy than it is when you're
sick," Innocent-Simon said.
"When you're sick,you're going
to see me today, you're going to
see me tomorrow, you're going
to see me next week and you're


Shands Starke's Carrie Johnson (left) visits with
Louise Dyal Miller while setting up for the luncheon.
Miller had a story to share with those in attendance-
she recently had her pacemaker replaced and
brought the old one with her to show to anybody
who wanted to see it.

health event sponsored by Shands Starke and Altrusa of Starke.


going to see me four weeks from
now because I'm going to make
sure I'm tracking your care."
Innocent-Simon likened her-
self as the conductor of an or-
chestra. The patient's overall
health is a piece of music. The
conductor knows how each in-
strument should sound within
the framework of the music,
much like the primary care phy-
sician knows how each part of a
patient's body should be acting
within the framework of optimal
health.
"I help guide the music of the
health of your life," Innbcent-'
Simon said. "Your primary care
physician is the doctor who you
will turn to for most of your
health care needs."
Primary care physicians are
the ones who can tell a patient
when he or she needs to go see
a specialist, such as a cardiolo-
gist, but the majority of the pa-
tient care should be handled by
a primary care physician, Inno-
cent-Simon said. In essence, the
specialist gets to the root of the
problem quickly and determines
a cure. Patients are usually re-
ferred back to their primary care
physicians to work out day-to-
day medical management.
"We become a very integral
part of your care," Innocent-
Simon said.
Conti, who was making her
third straight appearance at the
annual event, said she agreed
with Innocent-Simon about thi
important role a primary care
physician should provide and
offered some other preventa-
tive measures when it comes to
heart disease. One such measure
she couldn't emphasize enough.
In fact, she has mentioned it be-
fore.
"You heard me say it a year


ago," Conti said. "I'll say it
again. If you have a son or
daughter, take them for a walk.
If you don't have a son or a
daughter, get a dog and take it
for a walk. If you don't have any
of those, just take yourself for a
walk. Walking's one of the easi-
est, non-joint-hurting forms of
exercise.
"Starting an exercise program
can be extremely daunting, but
just step out of your front door
and walk around for 10 to 15
minutes a couple of times a day.
That's what's recommended in
terms of exercise."
A low-fat diet, of course, is
another preventative measure.
"If you can, stay away from
fast food," Conti said. "I like
fast food, too, but try to avoid it.
If it comes out of window, it's
probably not real food."
Whereas walking is an easy
preventative measure, quitting
smoking is not so easy for those
who do so, Conti said.
"I know it's the hardest thing
to do," Conti said, "but the sin-
gle-best thing you can do-for
yourself from a cardiovascular
standpoint is to stop smoking.
If you have sons or daughters,
don't let them start.
"Quitting smoking is the
equivalent of a heroin addict
trying to stop using intravenous
drugs. That's how hard it is."
Conti said those who are on
medications to address or help
prevent cardiovascular disease
should remember to take their
those medications religiously.
"Make sure they're some-
where where you see them every
day so you remember to take

Things that make

BY RAMONA PETRY
Special to the Telegraph-Times-
Monitor
People complain all of the time
about what our elected officials
do or don't do and how changes
implemented affect their lives
and those of their families. Yet
\\hen \ou make the statement that
they are "our elected officials,"
the most common response is, "I
didn't vote for them."
These are, however, elected
officials, so how did they get
.into office if no one voted for
them?
This took just a little bit of
research to figure out. According
Lo the Bradford County
*Supervisor of Elections office,
there are 15,810 registered
voters (7.674 Democrats, 6,250
'Republicans and 1,886 others)
in Bradford County. The 2010
Census Bureau reports 28,520
residents of Bradford County,
22.885 of which are of voting
age, also according to the Census

Bureau.
The election votes reported by
the Bradford County Supervisor
of Elections office for the past
four years show that the average
voterturnoutisonly 38.8 percent,
or approximately 6,134 voters.
That is the number of people
who are registered to vote. Then
add to the equation that there are
22,885 residents eligible to vote,
and that moves the percentage
down to 26.8 percent of the
county's population voting.
People value theirjobs, homes
and incomes. Yet when it comes
time to decide who will oversee
your rights, most people don't
even bother to put forth the effort
to vote on who they believe
would implement or change the
things they want done.
From the numbers, it is easy
to see that most of the people
who said, "I didn't vote for him/
her," are telling the truth. They
most likely didn't bother to vote
at all.

If this county and country
want to see change and want to
see the best person put in the
correct office, then everyone
needs to step up and vote.
Don't, however,just step up to t
the polls and cast a vote just to
say you voted. Take a little time
and find out about the candidates.
Talk to people and find out what i
they think or know, go online
and do a little research on the
candidates or turn the music off
of the radio and turn on talk or
news radio. You will be surprised
at what you learn.
Make an informed decision.
Then cast your vote. With early
voting, voting by mail and the
polls staying open all day, there
is really no reason for anyone to
say, "I didn't have time."
Just an FYI in regard to
voter turnouts in Bradford
County, these are averages of
the population of registered '
voters at the specified time that
did vote: 1966-80.5 percent,
1976-55 percent, 1986-62
percent, 1996-49 percent and
2006-41 percent.
If you wonder why officials can
get away with doing what they
want to do, making changes that
affect our community, friends
and neighbors-negatively or
positively-just think about this.
This trending shows that fewer
and fewer people care enough to
get involved and vote.

thing on
redistricting
Dear Editor:
Well, well, just who is sur-
prised at the county commis-
sion's behavior on the redistrict-
ng issue? However, you have
o be proud of the district three
commissionerr for her stand on
what should be done.
Both Eddie Lewis and Doyle
Thomas know in their heart of
hearts that the purpose of re-
listricting is to have an equal
number of people in every dis-
rict. Just how complicated can
an issue like that be? Both Ross
Chandler and Danny Riddick
also failed in their responsibil-
ty by not voting to bring about
equalized districts.
Is it politics as usual? Are
.he people in office afraid they
might be voted out of office?
Even gerrymandering wasn't an
ssue to be discussed, after the
courts said that it is illegal.
We have to be proud of Lila
Sellars and her stand on this is-
sue. God bless a person who
wants to do what is right, re-
gardless of the circumstances.
I would hope that the commis-
sioners, at their regular meeting,
do the right thing.

HPD missed
on 301, but for
different
reason
Dear Editor:
I feel compelled to respond
to the opinion posted by Donna
Bryan Rowe in the Thursday,
Feb. 9, edition of the Telegraph
regarding the Hampton Police
Department being missed. on
U.S 301. 1 agree with her totally
that they will be missed, but for
totally different reasons.
First of all,I'm wholly in favor
of reasonable law enforcement.
But occasionally, a law enforce-
ment department just can't resist
hiding behind their badges and
fleecing the motoring public and
claiming it's all done in the name
of public safety. In my opinion
this is exactly what the Hamp-
ton Police Department has been
doing for years on U.S. 301, as
well as the rest of Hampton.
Whatthey've been doingought
to be against the law instead of
being the law. A town with one
red light (which they annexed
into the city) and slightly more
than 400 residents-and the city
of Hampton deems it necessary
to have 17 law enforcement per-
sonnel and 6-8 police vehicles.
A recent article in the Telegraph
claimed that the head of the po-
lice department indicated that
the citations were written to
generate money to successfully
fight the drug problem in Hamp-
ton. What a joke.
What I don't understand is
why nearby cities such as Starke,
Baldwin, Keystone Heights,


Lake Butler and others don't
seem to have such a problem
with traffic law enforcement that
they find it necessary to carry
law enforcement to the level that
Hampton does. Hampton has
taken so-called law enforcement
to level that I call predatory law
enforcement.
The writer (of the previous
letter) states that it's a sad day
when politicians get together to
stop another law enforcement
agency from enforcing the law.
Danny Riddick and the rest of
the "politicians" mentioned in
the article are, in my opinion,
simply correcting something that
is wrong-and what is wrong is
the blatant abuse of power by
the city of Hampton. If it be-
comes necessary to threaten the
removal of a city charter to stop
the abuse, so be it. I, and many
others, applaud Danny Riddick
and the others for their stand in
halting the abuse.
Police officials in Hampton
can claim all they want that it's
all done in the name of public
safety and law enforcement but
let's face it. We all know that the
primary motivation in the whole
issue is money.
And in case you're wondering,
no, I'm not writing this letter be-
cause I got a ticket in Hampton
Bill Oliver

Is 5 minutes
worth saving a
life?
Dear Editor:
Ed Sherwood was killed
Tuesday morning (Feb. 7) in a
head-on collusion. Think about
this for a moment... are safety
departments placing speed-limit
signs, double yellow lines and
,the like for the fun of it? No!
SThey ar'e 'osted with the expec-
tation of drivers obeying them. It
is the law. Not obeying them has
caused a family to be without
a father-husband-son-brother-
friend. He died so needlessly.
How terribly sad!
You may wonder where all
the police officers are when
someone'is deliberately breaking
driving lavs. Maybe watching a
lot of "safe" drivers pass by due
to a nice driver warning the on-
coming traffic by flashing their
headlights that there is a patrol
car ahead? All of us have experi-
enced this at one time or another.
That too is illegal.
Most people think this is
great. However, if they drove
down the road and saw a loved
one in a fatal accident that may
have been avoided, would the
knowledge that some nice per-
son flashed his lights and kept
a possibly impaired driver from
getting stopped take away the
pain? I think not! The "nice"
person who flashed the warning
may never know they indirectly
caused an accident, but isn't that
what really happened? (I'm not
talking about the accident in-
volving Ed.)
Most officers are out there not
to "get" us, but actually to keep
us from hurting ourselves and

maybe more importantly others.
I have lived in Clay County most
of my adult life (a long time). I
have lived in Orange Park, Mid-
dleburg and worked in Green
Cove Springs. I have lived in
Keystone for five years.
I think the drivers in this area
are worse than those in Atlanta.
How hard is it to leave your
house 15-30 minutes early? If
necessary, pretend you have
to get there earlier so you will
leave earlier. Are you in danger
of being shot if you arrive late?
Arriving late is a much better al-
ternative to killing someone by
trying to get to a destination on
time when you are already late.
Would you appreciate someone
choosing to be late rather' than
driving in an unsafe manner ,if
you knew your spouse-child-
family were headed for certain
.death if they didn't?
Please people wake up-
it is too late for Ed Sherwood
and his family. Ed was a super
nice person. He always had a
smile and something nice to
say. Hopefully it won't be too
late for your family or mine! It
breaks my heart for someone to
get killed like this and then for it
be called an accident. To me this
wasn't an accident-this could
have been avoided! A careless
driver drove on Ed's side of the
road and killed him. This could
have been your loved one or my
loved one--it was the Sherwood
family's loved one and a lot of
people's friend.

Commiission
should do the
right thing
Dear Editor:
As a taxpayer, a voter and a
committee member selected to
help redraw the district lines,
I have been very interested in
the outcome of the votes by the
school board and the county
commissioners. The commit-
tee members were picked arid
asked to serve .by their school
board and county commission
members. The committee was
brought in to come up with new
district lines that met three cri-
teria:
Get the majority-minority
district (district 1) back to at
least 50 percent plus one.
Redraw the other four diS-
tricts to bring numbers under 10
percent difference (our median
number was 5,335, meaning we
should have less than 533 differ-
ence between the smallest dis-
trict and the largest district.
Have the same district for
both the school board and the
county commission.
Once the committee came
up with some alternatives, they
would be submitted to the boards
and they would vote on them as
is, or tweak them and pass to
the next board that would pass
or tweak to their liking. This
process could have been very

lengthy.
After a lot of work from Mrs.
Carol Milner, the committee was
given a "starter plan" that gave
us a majority-minority at better
than 50 percent and a starting
point to begin this process. The
committee greatly appreciated
the elected officials who attend-
ed and offered their concerns
and help on this project. At the
first meeting, we requested them
to attend every meeting. This
committee members' thought
process was, "If we all work to-
gether and come to an agreement
during these meetings with input
from both boards, it would save
a lot of time." Meaning, if we
left our final meeting in agree-
ment, then the votes could be
made within a week or two and
the redrawing could be started
almost immediately.
There were several meetings
and a lot of input from Lila Sell-
ars, Stacy Creighton and Randy
Jones-not only staying late and
being very hands-on, but, meet-
ing with the supervisor of elec-
tions office on their own time
and coming up with more plans.
(Imagine that, elected officials
actually earning my taxpayer
dollars.) The committee came
up with three plans that not only
met our stated criteria but also
state constitution criteria.
The state constitution has 10
points to follow when re-dis-
tricting. I will give you the first
four (most important):
1) Equal (almost) in popula-
tion
2) Don't dilute minority vot-
ing strength
3) Use Census blocks
4) No bizarre shapes.
There is also one that says
keep districts compact and con-
tiguous (to keep from the ger-
rymandering laws), which the
committee also was able to do.
After requesting some ad-
ditional information from the
Supervisor of Elections' office,
for my own research and under-
standing, I was shown a Power-
point put together by a law firm
that specializes in these matters.
In short it says: Equal (almost)
in population means between
one percent and three percent
deviation or as small as possible.
Two districts with populations
more than 10 percent of differ-
ence may raise a red flag.
This is the point with which I
have a problem: Not only did the
committee present three plans
that were less than 10 percent,
but with minor tweaking by the
three named elected officials
mentioned above, one plan was
redrawn to less than one percent
difference. This plan was the
only one that met the state con-
stitution fully. The other three
were agreed upon because it
made the redrawing less harsh
and still fell below the red flag
of 10 percent.
The plan the county commis-
sion wants is 35 percent-plus.
This is a huge red flag.
I really believe the county
commissioners are gambling
with taxpayer money by open-
ing the county to potential legal
action. Win or lose, we are wast-
ing money on a lawyer to argue
our case.
If Mr. (Doyle) Thomas is wor-
ried about being thought easily
swayed, I would think that is
better than having the reputation
of someone who works outside
the lines. There is right and there


is wrong. Right is voting a plan
that meets the. state constitu-
tion. Wrong is knowingly voting
"yes" on something that does not
meet the state constitution and
opens the county to a lawsuit
and possibly wastes taxpayer
money.
Lawsuit or not, they are wast-
ing taxpayer money by not
reaching an agreement on the
new lines with the school board,
thereby costing the county more
money on the next election by
having two different sets of dis-
trict lines
The county commission has
the chance to right a wrong and
pick a plan that meets the state
constitution. Let's be proactive
and do the right thing up front
and not reactive and waste tax-
payer money on a potential law-
suit.

Faithful dog,
faithless own-
er
To whom it should concern but
apparently didn't:
I watched you in your black
pickup truck pulling a lawn-
mower trailer, and saw you drop
your pet off. Your sunny brown
dog waited for two days in the
exact spot you dropped him off
at. I gave him some water and
food before calling the animal
control department.
Sir, maybe you don't under-
stand the social contract man has
with his dog. So let me explain:
you feed and care for them and
they'll give you more love than
you deserve. You violated that
contract.
I hope your kids didn't see
what I saw, a low-down scum
who didn't even have the hu-
manity to take him to the animal
shelter. .1 hope you never own
a dog again because you sure
don't deserve one.
Sincerely,

Dog finds

home to match

breeding
Dear Editor:
On July 23, he was four months
old and he was adopted from the
Alachua County Animal Ser-
vices by an elderly couple. The
husband saw his big feet and had
a feeling that he was going to
grow into a big dog. This elderly
couple didn't have a fenced-in
back yard and lived by them-
selves. Quickly, Woody began
to grow. Woody was going to be
a big dog. Woody is a Catahoula
mix. A Catahoula can weigh 55-
80 pounds. A Catahoula needs
attention, direction, something
to do and a strong owner.
At some point while trying to
take Woody on a walk, Woody
tripped the wife. She broke her
hip and at that point they real-
ized that they had made a mis-
take. But they loved him and
wanted to find him a good home.
They asked around for help and
my name was given to them. I
met with them and Woody and
quickly realized that I needed to
get Woody into a better place-
ment before he became a mean
dog and not just active. The el-
derly couple was unable to con-
trol him. He was approximately
eight months old and 35-40


pounds.
After placing an ad in the pa-
per, a couple called who had a
fenced-in yard, another dog that
could be a friend to Woody,
and took their dogs in atnight.
Of all the calls this seemed the
best one. So in mid-November,
Woody went to live at his new
home. I placed the adoption of
Woody in the win column.
Thanksgiving and Christmas
went by and I was busy working
and adopting out other cats and
dogs. Then a few weeks after
New Year's, I received an email
from Woody's owners. It seems
that they had taken in another
male dog to help someone out.
Within a week, Woody attacked
that dog and it had to be taken
to a veterinarian. We all agreed
that Woody probably needed to
find a new home. However, his
placement wasn't going to be as
easy as before.
We all were worried that
Woody had become a violent
,dog that would have to be eutha-
nized. After talking to everyone
(including a Catahoula rescue
group trainer) about Woody, I
made the decision to try to find
him a home that would match his
breed. The rescue group let me
know that it is not unusual for a
male Catahoula to attack another
male. So with that information I
advertised Woody again and did
a lot of praying.
I received some calls about
Woody and quickly eliminated
them if they didn't fit Woody
and his situation. This past Sat-
urday, I received a call from a
man who described himself as
a cowboy and said that his fam-
ily had always had Catahoula
dogs on their ranch. He said that
Woody would go everywhere he
goes. He trained lots of dogs and
would train Woody.
It seemed to meet all the re-
quirements that Woody needed
to have a good home. Even af-
ter telling him what Woody had
done to the other dog, the cow-
boy drove up and I let him take
Woody on a handshake with the
stipulation that I would make a
visit to Woody's new home one
day next week.
It was hard for us to let him
go, but we all felt like this was
Woody's chance. Monday, I will
call Woody's new owner and ar-
range a day this week to visit. I
want to make sure that Woody's
new home will be his final home.
The only thing Woody has been
guilty of is being a Catahoula
and not being placed in the right
home.

Tigers defeat 21-2 Chiefland team to win district title


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
SStarkeJournal.com Editor

"'The Union County boys'
b sketball team sleepwalked
through the first half of its Dis-
trict 7-1A tournament opener
.,ith Baldwin, falling behind
25,18. Coach Rufus Jefferson
sounded the alarm at the half,
and the Lake Butler squad re-
bounded, hustled and pressed its
w+y past the Duval County team
60-47.
..The Tigers then carried their
second-half momentum from
Feb. 10 to stun a heavily favored
ehiefland squad the follow-
ing night to claim the District 7
championship Feb. 11 in New-
tI -y.
.i I really challenged my guys,"
said Jefferson of his first game
halftime talk. "I told them their
season was about to be over
and if they wanted the season to
be over, just keep playing like
you've been playing."
The coach didn't wait until
halftime to send a message to
his, starting five. He pulled the'
entire crew from the court with
2:25 left in the first quarter.
"That's something I never do,"
recalled the coach. "I was frus-
trated. They were dead. I wanted
to sit them down. I've got guys
who like to be in the action and I
was sending a message to them:
if you don't like sitting over here
then do what you need to do in
dfder to stay on the court, and
t~at's what they did."
SJefferson also opened the sec-
Infd half with a full court press,

ratcheting up the intensity of his
team and forcing Baldwin into
turnovers. Union County out-
scored the Indians 18-4 in the
third quarter and never looked
back, cruising to a 60-47 final.
Shaimea Maeweather led the
team in scoring with 23 points,
while Keldric Bradley and
Daquin Edwards scored 12 and
11 points, respectively.
The Tigers then rode the in-
tensity of Friday night's second
half into Saturday's contest with
the seventh-ranked Chiefland
Indians. This time though, there
was no first-half swoon. The Ti-
gers came out strong, posting a
32-29 halftime lead against the
21-2 team from Levy County.

them," Conti said.
Her final piece of advice was
for people to be aware of their
numbers.
"Know what your blood pres-
sure is," Conti said. "Know what
your cholesterol is. Know your
triglycerides, your blood glu-
cose. All of that can be very eas-
ily attainable from your primary
cdre physician."
Conti and Innocent-Simon
took part in a brief question-and-
answer session, which featured
Conti differentiating between a
heart attack, cardiac arrest and
-congestive heart failure.
,-,A heart attack involves some-
one experiencing the well-known
symptoms of chest pains, chest
pressure and difficulty breath-
ing, Conti said. A heart attack is
when a coronary artery becomes
_.,lPgged and narrows, reducing
, the amount of blood that flows
S,4o the heart with oxygen.
i "A piece of the heart muscle
Sdies," Conti said. "That's a heart
attack."
S A person's heart is still beat-
ing during a heart attack. Car-
diac arrest, however, is when the
heart's electrical system mal-
c functions, causing the heart to
stop beating.
S "That's when people just fall
over dead," Conti said.
Defibrillation or CPR can be
performed to resuscitate a per-
Sson who has suffered cardiac


arrest provided it is done quick
enough.
Congestive heart failure is
when the heart does function,
but not like it should, restricting
the flow of blood to other parts
of the body, Conti said.
In response to Innocent-
Simon's own question for the
benefit of the audience, Conti
discussed the different tests one
may undergo in relation to heart
disease. An echocardiogram is
like an ultrasound, Conti said,
and allows doctors to see how
the heart is functioning and if
there are any defects.
A stress test, which usually
involves a person walking on a
treadmill, is for those who have
been experiencing some supsi-
cious symptoms, such as the in-
ability to perform as much phys-
ical activity in the past without
becoming short of breath and
chest discomfort.
"A stress test looks for block-
age in the arteries," Conti said.
"It looks to see if your heart is
getting enough blood when you
exercise."

If a stress test reveals there
may be issues,a person will then
be referred for a heart catheter-
ization, which is where a tiny
catheter is inserted into an ar-
tery in the leg and threaded up
through the body and into the
heart.
"Then we inject dye into the
arteries," Conti said. The dye
can be seen on X-rays and show
if there is any artery blockage.


paced the Tigers with eight and
seven first-half points, respec-
tively.
The two defenses clamped
down in the third period with
both team's held to under 12
points. Maewether accounted
for more than half of the Tiger's
production of nine points.
Union County pulled away
again in the forth quarter, de-
spite Alexander fouling out.
Sophomore Austin Dukes'came
in for the forward, and racked
up four violations himself in the
last quarter of the game.
"He's a sensational sopho-
more and he held his own," Jef-
ferson said of Alexander's re-
placement.
The Tigers opened up a four-
point lead with three minutes
remaining. Alexander then sunk
a two-pointer before posting his
fifth foul, and Bradley connect-
ed on two free throws.
A Chiefland player then drew
a technical foul by slamming the
ball down, and Maeweather add-
ed another point, opening a 56-
47 lead with a minute remaining.
The Indians were forced to foul
and Bradley and Maeweather
both connected on the front ends
of two-shot free throws, result-
ing in a 60-53 Union County
win.
Maeweather finished with
24 points, while Alexander and
Bradley had 14 and 12, respec-
tively.
Jefferson said his group was
motivated by the reward of a
home playoff game that came
with the championship.
"I told my guys we need to
pick up tonight where we left
off last night in the second half,"
Jefferson said. "They under-
stood not only the importance
of the district championship but
also the home court advantage in
the first round of the playoffs."
The Tigers host the Villages
on Tuesday, Feb. 21, in Lake
Butler at 7 p.m.

S"They came out and "per-
formed, and played an outstand-
ing game," Hamilton said.
Bradford led at the half of
its championship game against
Williston, but it was only an
'eight-point margin. The second
half saw the Hurricanes utilize
.i offensive set they hadn't used
alyear and had in fact been sav-
:ilgdfor the championship game.
eitp, playing point guard, set
"tr4'pportunities for the team's
post players by penetrating and
dishing passes to players such as
Davis, who would go on to fin-
ish with 22 points.
SKemp also scored in double
figures with 15 points.
Hamilton said Meghan Woods
and Markayla Sanford did a good
job of taking turns at defending
'Williston's best player.
SIn the end, the team hoisted a
.trophy it never got to play for the
previous season.
S"They went and played their
hearts out," Hamilton said.
;.,The Hurricanes were so close
to having a perfect season. They
.opened with a 26-25 loss to
Chiefland and lost 24-22 to Key-.
stone in their third game.
For their fifth game, the Hur-
ricanes faced the f5rospect of
traveling to play a Williston
team that was undefeated, at the
time. Hamilton said the players
were so nervous beforehand that
he suggested to them they just
call Williston and inform the
school that Bradford wouldn't
even bother showing up to play
the game.
Hamilton's point was for the
players to not focus on Wil-

listen's undefeated record but
to focus on being the team that
would hand Williston its first
loss. The Hurricanes won the
game 28-17.
"That was one of the better
games they played all season
long," Hamilton said.
In fact, Bradford would defeat
Williston twice during the regu-
lar season, winning the second
game 34-27.
Bradford players were con-
fident heading into the tourna-
ment and prior to the champion-
ship game.
"I told them we've got the
edge," Hamilton said, referring
to the fact Williston had not ex-
perienced a win over Bradford
this season.
Several players took on ma-
jor roles in helping the team
win its conference, including
eighth-graders Davis, Kemp and
Woodss.
Hamilton said Davis respond-
ed well to taking on the role of
leader this season. For example,
,if the team was not .going 100
"percent in practice, she was the
"one who encouraged them to
pick the tempo up.
"She was wanting to take on
that leadership role," Hamilton
said. "She stepped up."
Kemp, a transfer from Gaines-
ville, did not play for Bradford
last year, but she brought "heart
and soul" to the team, Hamilton
said, and was just as motivated
as the players who played on the
team last year.
"She just came in with a lot of
enthusiasm and helped the team
to see, 'Hey, we have a chance,"'
Hamilton said.
Woods is a "great" defensive
player who just loves the game
of basketball, Hamilton said.
"She just has that fire and


desire," Hamilton said. "Some-
times, I have to calm her down.
She's so anxious to get the job
done."
Another player who stepped
up was seventh-grader Tessa
Ricker, Hamilton said. She was
eager to become a better player
and do everything in her power
to help the team be better.
"She really displayed the atti-
tude of, 'This is what it takes to
win,'" Hamilton said.
Joining Ricker, Davis, Kemp,
Woods and Sanford, a sixth-
grader, were sixth-graders Ma-
kayla Carter and Jah'mya Hen-
derson, seventh-graders Hannah
Campbell, Madison McClellan,
Liana Sanford and Jimea Ty-
son, and eighth-graders Lata-
jari Leath, Tamija McCray and
Quanesha Stewart.

ner-up Jasmine Baker of South
Lake.
Baker had a bench press
that was 25 pounds better than
Cook's best lift, but Bradford
coach Deac Story said he wasn't
worried about Cook's chances.
He said he knew if she had three
successful clean-and-jerk at-
tempts after her three successful
bench-press attempts, she would
be at or near the top.
As for the personal-record
clean-and-jerk total, it was a
weight Cook has achieved in

pounds away from in Bradford's.

Gainesville.
"I knew she could do it," Sto-
ry said.
Cook said the clean-and-jerk
event is what she's strongest in
anyway and felt she could win if
she was successful on all three
of her attempts.
"I just pushed myself," Cook
said. "No matter what, I had to
get it."
Story said Cook did what was
necessary to reach the top, wQrk-

"I think she deserved to win
because of the way she worked
throughout the season," Story
said.
Cook's friend Morgan
Boettcher, a junior at Keystone
Heights High School, also com-
peted in the unlimited class, tak-
ing third and earning a medal
herself with a 420 total. Boettch-
er had a bench press of 215 and
a clean and jerk of 205.
Boettcher qualified for state
as a seventh-grader and has been
back every year since. This was
her third straight year earning
a medal, and she was a state
champion in the 199 class as a
freshman.
"That's just amazing," Key-
stone coach Connie Crawford
said.
Boettcher, Cook and Baker
were definitely the cream of the
crop as Boettcher's total was 45

finisher Sabrina Stidd of Clay.

bench press, 105 clean and jerk),
while the Tornadoes' Karen
Clark placed 24'" with a person-
al-record total of 195 (95, 100).
Both lifters were making their
first-ever trips to state. Miller is
a junior and Clark a freshman.
Now that the tears have dried,
and she has laid claim to a state
championship, it is time for
Cook to think about her senior
year, Story said.
"I enjoyed it Saturday and
Sunday," Story said. "I wanted
her to do the same. As of right
now, it's over with-2013 starts
on Monday."
Cook admitted it will be hard
to put the euphoria of winning
behind her, saying,"I don't think
it'll wear off. It's too amazing."
However, she is determined to
do what it takes for a repeat per-
formance next year.

"I think I can (win state
again)," she said. "If I put my
mind to it like I did this year, I
think I'll have it again."

4 Bradford wrestlers qualify for state tournament


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Jarraid Forsyth and Devin
Paulk wornthe championships of
their classes, while Cody Han-
kerson and Phillip James each
earned a third-place finish at the
Region 1-Class IA wrestling fi-
nals on Feb. 10-11 at Clay High
School in Green Cove Springs.
By virtue of their top-four
finishes, the four wrestlers will
compete at the Florida High
School Athletic Association Fi-
nals this weekend in Lakeland.
Bradford coach Dana Arthur
said it was quite an accomplish-
ment for Bradford against such
schools as Clay and University
Christian.
"That's something special,"


Arthur said.
Forsyth (35-1) won the
138-pound class and, perhaps,
saved his best for the semifinal
and championship matches. Ar-
thur admitted he thought both
matches would be close affairs,
but Forsyth claimed a 14-4 ma-
jor decision over Doug Miner of
Panama City Arnold in the semi-
finals and a 15-6 major decision
over Travis Hinsey of Wakulla
to win the championship.
"Jarraid probably wrestled the
best tournament I've ever seen
a kid wrestle," said Arthur, al-
luding to the fact Forsyth is a
sophomore.
Forsyth advanced to the semi-
finals by pinning the first two
opponents he faced during the

in 4:37.

S with University
Christian's
Josh Fox, the
top 195-pound
wrestler in the
state. Fox got
the win, but
James would go
on to win two
more matches to
place third.


Paulk (35-3) recorded two
straight come-from-behind vic-
tories and also wrestled with a
rib injury sustained in his final
match to win the 160 class.
"It tells a lot about his heart
and character," Arthur said.
Paulk defeated Justin Love
of Yulee and Logan Fletcher
of Suwannee by scores of 13-7
and 16-8, respectively, in the
first two rounds. In his semifinal
match against Kris Kenney of
Bozeman, he trailed 8-1 before
coming back and scoring the
winning point in the final sec-
onds. That gave Paulk a 13-12
win and a berth in the champi-
onship match.
Jake Bain of Clay had Paulk
down 10-5 midway through'the
second period in the champion-
shp match, but Paulk rallied to
tie the score at 13-all to force an
overtime period. Paulk eventu-
ally won 15-13.
Hankerson and James each
won their first two matches
to advance. to'-the- semifinaSg,
where each lost. They then each
recorded two straight wins to


claim their third-place finishes
in the 152 and 195 classes, re-
spectively.
Hankerson (34-9) pinned Da-
vid McKee of Bozeman in 2:39
to start his tournament off. He
then scored an 8-6 overtime
win over Corey Hicks of Flor-


ida High before losing 3-2 to
Bolles' Robbey Pye-a highly
ranked wrestler-in the-semifi-
nals. Hankerson bounced back,
wrestling his way to the third-
place match before facing Hicks
again and winning 9-3.
James, a state qualifier last
year as a sophomore, dominated
his opponents at the start, pin-
ning James Austin of Episcopal
in 17 seconds and Cody Sikes df
Arnold in 41 seconds. James-was
then pinned by the top-ranked
wrestler in the state in the 195
class-Josh Fox of University
Christian-in the semifinals.
Arthur said he had no doubts
that James would bounce back
with a state-qualifying win.
James wants to prove that going
to state last year and coming up
one win short of earning a medal
was not a fluke, Arthur said.,
"He wants to show a lot df
people he's a good wrestler and
not just a very gifted athlete,"
Arthur said.
James (31-4) did rebound,
pinning his next opponent in the
first round before recording. a
14-4 major decision over Mar-
cus Roberts of Panama City Ru-
therford to claim third place.
Brent Kebby and Markel Parks
also wrestled for Bradford in the
220 and 245 classes, respective-
ly. Each went 2-2. Kebby's two
wins came by pins of 3:55 and
3:13, while Parks pinned two
opponents in 5:36 and 1:41.
As a team, Bradford placed
sixth with 92 points. Clay
topped the team standings with
198 points, followed by Univer-
sity Christian (175), Wakulla
(161.5), Bolles (130) and Suwn-
nee (108).

Tornadoes denied title after double-overtime loss


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Brian Walton made two free
throws to force overtime, but the
Bradford boys' basketball team.
couldn't make the clutch plays
it needed to to avoid a second
overtime period as host Wil-
liston' eventually outlasted the
Tornadoes 84-81 to win the Dis-
trict 5-4A championship on Feb.
1 1 in Williston.
Bradford was attempting to
win its fourth straight district
championship, but will now
have to take to the road for the
regional playoffs, beginning
with a Thursday, Feb. 16, quar-
terfinal game against Mount
Dora at 7 p.m.
"I was proud of my kids and
the way they fought.They fought
great tonight," Bradford head
coach Traavis Chandler said.
"We had opportunities to win
the game several times. I think
with the bounce of the ball, the
game could've gone either way.
"It just went the home team's
way tonight."
Bradford (15-13) led by four
points in the first overtime pe-
riod after Walton made a free
throw with approximately a min-
ute remaining. In fact, the Tor-
nadoes had outscored Williston
7-3 despite losing center Justin
McBride, who fouled out at the
2:11 mark of overtime with 22
points and 16.rebounds.
Detereon Ross banked a shot
in on his drive to the basket to
pull the Red Devils to within 71-
69 with 44 seconds to play. Wil-
liston's Tre Wilson then stole a
pass at the other end of the court
and took it the distance for a
layup with 24 seconds left that
would eventually force a second
overtime period.
.'We've got to learn to take
better care of the ball," said
Chandler, whose team turned
the ball over approximately 30
times. "At the same' time, we
know we've got two guards (in
Walton and Keaaris Ardley)
who are sophomores who start
for us. They're young. They've
got to get experience. They've
got to learn.
"They cai lea'nri'a'1it from this
game."
Ross, who led all scorers with
34 points, put the Devils (18-7)
up 30-22 in the second quar-
ter after making a leaning bank
shot and subsequent free throw.
Walton answered by driving the
baseline for a score and drawing
a foul. Walton missed the free
throw, but McBride grabbed the
miss and put it back to pull the
Tornadoes to within four. An-
other basket by McBride off of
an Ardley assist made it a 30-28
game, but Ross, after a Bradford
turnover, was fouled on a shot
attempt and made both ensuing
free throws.
Ross had a chance to add an-
other score before the half. It ap-
peared as if he was going to get
a layup following his own steal,
but Ardley stole the ball back
to allow Bradford to go into the
half trailing by four.
The third quarter saw Williston
go up 42-36 after scoring baskets
following Bradford turnovers on
Stwo straight possessions. Brad-
ford, though, closed the quarter
by outscoring the Red Devils
.6-2. Deon Aldridge made a
3-pointer, which was followed
