Redistricting the county: Will they get there?


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The state constitution lays it out pret-
ty simply in the same article that creates
the county commissioners' positions:
the constitution says the commission-
ers of each county will redistrict every
10 years, evening out the populations
of the districts they represent.
There are some things to be careful
of: they can't dilute the minority vote
or draw wildly gerrymandered dis-
tricts, for example. But according to
a paper prepared by the state associa-
tion of elections supervisors, there's no
problem trying to protect incumbents
or political parties when it comes to


redistricting at the local level. (Florida
voters felt strongly enough about pre-
venting those last two things at the
state and congressional level that they
wrote it into the state constitution dur-
ing the last election.)
Even the relatively simple goals
of redistricting can get complicated
in larger counties with more diverse
populations and more competition for
political seats-not to mention a place
with many more commissioners, like
Duval. In many of those places, the re-
districting process began more than a
year ago.
Bradford County, it seems, is still
struggling with the concept.
A committee of citizens from each


district convened over several months
last year and forwarded three plans
to the county commission and school
board for consideration with three goals
in mind. First, District 1 should be pre-
served as a minority majority district.
Second, there should be less than a 10
percent difference in the populations
of the remaining districts. Finally, the
county commission and school board
should agree to adopt the same plan so
voters can continue electing a county
commissioner and a school board
member from the same district.
The school board jumped the gun by
voting to select its preferred plan be-
fore meeting with the county commis-
sion to discuss the options. The county

The board at the New River Region-
al Landfill is reconsidering its future,
stepping back a bit in an effort to save
money and increase the longevity of
the disposal facility.
The plan involves turning an under-
used cell for yard trash and construc-
tion debris into the landfill's next major
disposal cell and postponing a costly
expansion onto 300 adjacent, but not
readily accessible, acres.
A portion of the landfill's Class III
disposal site was already excavated so
Cell 6-construction of which is cur-
rently in progress-could be built as a
20-acre cell.
According to the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection, Class III
waste means yard trash, construction
and demolition debris, processed tires,
asbestos, carpet, cardboard, paper,
glass, plastic, furniture other than ap-
pliances, or other materials approved
by the department that are not expected
to produce leachate that poses a threat
to public health or the environment.
Because older Class III cells are


not lined, Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal called New River's cell an en-
vironmental weak link. Almost noth-
ing is accepted for disposal in the cell
because it's labor intensive remove to
Class I materials from the waste'stream
and ensure compliance with Class III
disposal requirements.
O'Neal said the cell is valuable
space that is not being used to its full
potential.
O'Neal said a lot was learned in ex-
cavating and relocating Class III mate-
rial to make way for Cell 6, and it led
to the idea of excavating the entire area
and lining it to serve as the seventh dis-
posal cell.
As originally conceived, Cell 7
wasn't going to be possible until New
River began its second phase of devel-
opment on 300 acres adjacent to the
existing landfill. Before Cell 7 con-
struction could even begin under that
plan, however, the. landfill board was
looking at major infrastructure invest-
ment, including bridge and road con-
struction.
Moving Class III materials into the
existing cells will not only allow Cell
7 to be built alongside Cell 6, it will


be the same size as well, O'Neal said.
With a Class I permit, they will even be
able to take the cell to a much higher
elevation, so it is also a better use of
the space. It should also be a relatively
easy process, since much of the exca-
vated material can be moved right into
Cell 6.
New River's engineers at Jones, Ed-
munds and Associates were able to de-
velop a timeline based on the new plan.
O'Neal said the new plan would give
the board time to put aside additional
revenue and plan for the next phase.
Phase II development, instead of begin-
ning in the not too distant future, would
be pushed to 2021, with actual disposal
beginning in 2026. The capacity avail-
able in the next phase will provide for
disposal beyond 2030.
Engineer Joel Woolsey said us-
ing the site for Class I disposal would
mean a difference of tens of millions of
dollars to New River. Jones Edmunds
will be approaching DEP for several
permit modifications so the landfill can
get rid of the Class III site and modify
the slopes on the existing cells to in-
crease capacity, which will also extend
the life of the landfill.

commission wasn't happy to have been
excluded, but turned around and did the
same thing, selecting a plan without
speaking to school board members.
But four out of five county com-
missioners chose a plan that had not
been recommended by the committee
because it only changed the boundar-
ies of District 1. It did not even out the
populations of the other districts, and
thus did not accomplish the primary
goal of redistricting.
The move also meant there would be
separate school board and county com-
mission districts since the boards were
backing different plans.

Starke

issues, lifts

water alert

BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

A lower than normal reading on a
gauge that measures hypo-chlorite en-
tering Starke's water supply led city
officials to issue a boiled water alert
Tuesday morning.
City Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson said a worker at the munici-
pality's plant next to the water tower
noticed the irregular reading before 9
a.m. He added that water plant workers
traced the problem to a faulty pipe that
had disrupted the purification agent's
flow into the water supply. Workers
quickly repaired the pipe, then spread
out over the city to open up fire hy-
drants, flushing the system of under-
chlorinated water.
Thompson said the effort to flush out
under-chlorinated water led to drops in
pressure in some parts of the city. He
also said the emergency might have
resulted in residents using regular well
water, instead of the treated water that
normally flows through the city's sys-
tem.
"But if you tell people they are get-
ting chlorinated water and they are not,
you have to let them know about it,"
he said.
At 6 p.m., Thompson declared the
alert over. Throughout Tuesday night,
the utility continued to replenish the
system's lines, which had earlier been
depleted. However, hypochlorite levels
remained within acceptable levels.
Roger Slora, the city's licensed wa-
ter operator, said that the under-chlori-
nation was caused by the calcification
of injectors used to pump hypochlorite
into the city's water supply.
Responding to the alert, emergency
officials delivered nearly 3,000 bottles
of water to Starke schools Tuesday
morning after thecity issued the boiled
water alert.
Emergency Management Public In-
formation Officer Michael Heeder said
the department dipped into around 25
percent of its stockpile, which it had
accumulated for emergencies like hur-
ricanes and wildfires.
Heeder added that school district
officials requested the water soon af-
ter the city issued the alert. By 11 a.m.
county workers had completed distrib-
uting the water'to the Rainbow Center,
Starke Elementary School, Southside
Elementary School, Bradford High
School, Bradford Middle School and
the Brad-ford-Union Career Technical
Center.
High school principal Rick Stephens
said his staff and maintenance crews
shut down the campus' water foun-
tains soon after school officials were
informed of the alert.
Heeder said the county decided to
act, even though the water warning
was precautionary.
"We thought it was in the best inter-
est of the students that they have ac-
cess to fresh water," he said, "and that
parents knew that their children were
cared for."


Farming and fun
It's been another busy year for kids
in FFA as well as their advisors
and sponsors. The year began
with leadership training for the
chapter presidents and officers.
FFA hosted a peanut boil for
members and parents in October,
which was shortly followed by the
district forestry contest and the
Ag Expo in Moultrie, Ga. FFA went
from Georgia to the Jacksonville in
November where members set up a
booth and participated in livestock ,.'
judging. They helped bring farm '
and city together for the Farm City
Luncheon on Nov. 15, even as steer
and heifer show participants began '. .
warming up for the competition. In
December, FFA members visited
with nursing home residents and
wrdt9 Christmas cards to local
businesses. There was also the
subdistrict contest, which included
tractor driving and public speaking
events. January was one of the
busiest months all year, with
livestock judging events and clinics,
the district agriculture mechanics


and land judging; and FFA hosted
a workshop on hydroponic farming
at the greenhouse. This month,
members have worked on their
record books and participated in
their first horse trail ride. During
FFA Week, their has already been
a teacher appreciation breakfast,
plus nursing home and elementary
school visits. The Ag-lympics
and Beast Feast are coming up
Thursday, followed by the state
livestock preliminary judging on
Friday. Members with a leadership
conference in Tallahassee. March
will bring more skills contests,
Teach Ag Day and the county fair.
Competitions continue in April in
May, and the year will wrap up with
the chapter banquet on May 17 and
the state convention June 25-29.

2A BRAmDORu COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, FEB. 23, 2012


County department heads provide

annual progress reports


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Recent annual reports to the
county commission included a
presentation from Sheriff Gor-
don Smith, who said an early re-
port shows crime solvability by
his office is up.
Crime statistics are compiled
and sent to the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement each
year, and Smith said a first look
'at those numbers before publica-
tion shows crime solvability has
risen from 47.3 percent to 56.2
percent. The state average is less
than 30 percent he said, giving
credit to the men and women of
the sheriff's office.
Always a statistics man, Smith
presented plenty of numbers to
the commission. He bragged on
communications, saying he was
astounded by the number of calls
'handled by dispatchers, who
work in two-person, 12-hour
shifts. More than 77,000 calls
were dispatched in 2011. Mbre
than 25,000 of those belonged to
the sheriff's office, while more
than 38,000 were calls for ser-
vice to the area police depart-
ments. Thousands of EMS and
fire department calls were also
dispatched.
The office received a number
of grants, including a $60,000
DUI grant, which has helped in-
crease DUI arrests. An additional
$48,000 grant pays officers to
work the south end of the county
on their days off. A $15,000 grant
purchased bullet proof vests, and
another $3,000 grant purchased
surveillance equipment.
The office also receives a grant
to f tnd a victims advocate posi-
tion, and that advocate'reached
out to close to 300 cdime victims
in 2011.
: Speaking of reaching out, the
sheriff's office is trying to make
.the most of social media, particu-
larly on Fackbook. Smith said
th'e Facebook page is second in
popularity only to the jail site
and is used to report arrests, sex
offender notifications and post
other items of public interest. .
More money is being recov-
ered in inmate medical'and oth-
er costs, including charges for
booking and property replace-
ment. This saves taxpayer dol-
lars, Smith said. In total, he said
his office returned more than
$261,000 in jail fees, fines and
forfeitures, and unspent revenue
to the county commission.
In addition, an inmate crew
provided to the county and mu-
,nicipalities provided 104,000
work hours for a total labor costs
savings of more than $901,000,
Smith said.
SInmates have also been used to
lower costs at the animal control
shelter. The sheriff reported a 22
percent decrease in animal eutha-
riasia.
The local drug task force re-
covered approximately $10,000
in vehicles and other property,
.seized more than 70 marijuana
plants, more than 500 pills, and
tens of thousand of dollars worth
of illegal substances in total, and
made 96- drug-related arrests.
This does not include Bradford's
additional involvement with the
DEA task force, which seized
planes, vehicles and more than.
600 marijuana plants. The of-
fice received $50,000 of the total
funds seized in 2011.*
Deputies performed nearly
7,100 property checks, respond-
ed to more than 600 disturbances,
dealt with 422 reckless drivers,
assisted with 368 traffic crashes,
were called to 434 assault/battery
cases, and handled 169 mental
illness calls. Patrol arrests totaled
820, plus there were 134 inves-
tigation arrests, 102 DUI arrests
and nearly 1,860 traffic citations
written. They also helped more
than 500 citizens get into their


locked vehicles,
The sheriff's office received
Child Abduction Response Team
certification (the first in the state),
recognition for crime prevention,
and the jail passed several impor-
tant inspections.
Smith praised employees but
also the many volunteers who
help the sheriff's office serve the
county.
Other department heads also
provided annual reports, giving
credit to support from employ-
ees, their fellow departments and
commissioners:
Health Department Direc-
tor Winnie Holland said special
funding has allowed the depart-
ment to run an emergency room
alternative program that has
served Bradford patients and
provided chronic disease educa-
tion as well as behavioral health"
treatment, including anxiety and
depression (in partnership with
Meridian). They are also pro-
viding prescription assistance to
indigent patients and working
with the school system on teen
outreach. The department is also
transitioning to electronic health
record management and updating
the community health improve-
ment plan.
Emergency Management
Director Brian Johns said the
county has reached storm readi-
ness goals, including public edu-
cation. Grants received included
an $89,000 award for agency
training (including the school
bus rollover drill). An additional
$376,000 was obtained to better
equip firefighters, he said. Sever-
al departments are collaborating
and using grant funds to provide
911 address signs to residents to
improve emergency response.
Emergency management is also
looking at website improvement,
including a tool for public feed-
back and suggestions.
Allen Parrish, director of
EMS, saidhis employees re-
sponded to more than 5,500 calls
and used grants to improve pro-
gram safety and purchase safety
equipment. They are working
hard on public relations and par-
ticipating in community events.
Most important is thelevel of care
EMS'has been able to prbVide, he
said. According to Parrish, they
are using cutting edge technol-
ogy and techniques to save lives.
They will be looking to replace
ambulances with grant funds this
year as well as updating software
to make billing more efficient.
Revenue collection is up to 68
percent and the goal is to raise
that another 5 percent this year.
Director Donny Wise said
solid waste has earned thousands
of dollars over the past couple of
years selling scrap metal, which
is also saving money on.dispos-
al costs. The total was around
$134,000 earned so far'on mate-
rials the,public is throwing out.
The revenue is being used to keep
the department under budget.
Library Director Robert Per-
one said the library had more
than? 140,000 visitors in 2011
and presented more than 300
programs, not including the 212
summer programs hosted. 500
children put in more than 5,000
reading hours over the summer,
plus additional teen and adult
participation. They hope to have
1,000 children participating this
year. A business resource lab has
been opened to assist with job
research and has been success-
ful helping people find work. E-
books are now available, and the
library hopes to set up a "petting
zoo" of different e-readers so pa-
trons can try before they buy.
Road Department Director
Paul Funderburk said 2011 was
'a busy year. A more accountable
,fueling system was" installed at
;the suggestion of the auditor in
addition to a security system.

standards. Funderburk said mill-
ing was uged on 7.8 miles of dirt
road providing a popular lower
cost alternative to paving.
Community Developmqnt
Director Kelly Canady said SHIP
funding was approved for 2012.
They are continuing to work on
housing replacement with one
tornado victim in addition to the
other housing services proved.
She is also working with the
county manager's office on the
operation of the senior center.
Ronnie Harper, supervisor of
the maintenance department,talk-
ed about having instituted a new
preventive maintenance program
on equipment and systems in the
courthouse and outlying build-
ings. Courthouse chillers were
replaced in November, resulting
in a savings on the county's pow-
er bill. Work will now focus on
replacing the heating and cooling
controls in the library, with hope
for additional savings. They also
completed the community center
at Speedville Park.
Chris Thurow from the IT
department said a long project
to create an emergency business
operations center at the Watson
Center has been finalized. This
will provide a base of operations
should an emergency require
courthouse offices to be evacu-
ated. Data, computing, tele-
communications-a complete
redundancy system has been es-
tablished that can be up and run-
ning in as little as five minutes
should the need arise, he said. Up
next, Thurow will be overseeing
a program to manage the reten-
tion schedule and distribution of
public records.
Extension Director Tim Wil-
son said there has been a sub-
stantial increase public contacts,
particularly for the 4-H and ag-
riculture programs. Shooting
sports participation was boosted
with an NRA grant. Ag in the
Classroom grant funds have pro-
vided 35 gardens at local schools.
A rural health program has
helped participants lose weight
and lead healthier lifestyles. The
extension office will continue
education through programs like
hydroponics and food safety and
preservation, and expand after-
school program opportunities.
Zoning Director Randy An-
drews provided a building report
for 201 .and said they will be us-
ing the building and zoning web-
sites to answer frequently asked
questions. They are also devel-
oping a checklist to assist people
seeking project permits get that
done more efficiently.
According to Veterans Ser-
vice Officer Barbara Fischer,
there have been more than 1,100
contacts with veterans or their
relatives, and the office has
brought in more than $1.4 mil-
lion in retroactive benefits. Hours
of operation are being expanded,
and services will be offered at
the senior center.

County firefighters work


toward state certification


Volunteer firefighters from all
over Bradford County met on
Saturday, Feb. 18, in Starke as
part of an ongoing class for state
firefighter certification.
Fifteen volunteers donned their
firefighting gear and breathing
apparatus in a unique training ex-
ercise conducted at Wainwright
Park off Water Street. The train-
ing is part of a State Firefighter
I class being offered online with
supplemental instruction given
in the "hands-on" portion of the
class.
Jvichael Heeder with Bradford
County Emergency manage-
ment, who is also a firefighting
Instructor by the State of Florida,
created a "confidence course"
using playground equipment to
create a confined space maze
where each firefighter's mask
was "blacked out" to simulate
thick smoke conditions and had
to crawl through the equipment
as if there were dealing with a
fire and,col,lapse.of a building. ,
."We want these firefighters to
be able to trust in themselves and
their equipment," said Heeder.
"These folks need to feel confi-
dent and comfortable in an emer-
gency and if they know they can
handle a maze like this, they can
feel good about operating in a
house fire."

The Saturday training focused
specifically on the use of self-
contained breathing apparatus,
which is the tank of air that fire-
fighters wear that allows them
to work in the smoke and gases
inside a fire. Combined with the
weight of the firefighting gear
each volunteer wears, it equals
over 90 pounds of added weight
that each firefighter has to oper-
ate in.
"These firefighters, as well as
every firefighter, has to be able to
perform in a moment's notice,"
said Bradford County Emergen-
cy Manager Brian Johns. "This
training allows- them to do just
that. Our volunteers do a great
job at a major savings of county
funds and we could not provide
the level of service we have with-
out their efforts."
The certification these fire-
fighters are working towards is
a state-mandated requirement to
perform as an interior firefighter
working,,jpside. a. building .on
fire. The course totals over 160
hours of training just to achieve
the basic firefighter certification
as a volunteer firefighter. Career
firefighters such as in Starke,
Gainesville or Jacksonville are
required to complete even more
intensive training.
Several of the firefighters tak-


by asking members to bring
their aluminum cans rather than
throwing them away.
The Bradford DEC represents
the Democratic voters of Brad-
ford County. There are currently
openings for committeemen or
committeewomen in some pre-
cincts. For further information


ing this class are hoping to co*n-
tinue on to achieve their Fire-
fighter II certification in order to
make firefighting a career. The
training course currently going
on includes leaning about the
history of the fire service, fire
chemistry and fire behavior, fire-
fighter safety, emergency proce-
dures and the use of ladders, tools
and hoses to extinguish a fire...:.
"It's not the easiest thing to do,
but the rewards of helping the
community are immeasurable,'
said Heeder. Not every volun-
teer has to complete this training,
only those who are looking to be
on the inside of a structure fire."
Bradford County is always
looking to bolster its volunteer
membership. "There are so many
tasks needed in an emergency,
from medical care to working on
a vehicle crash to extinguishing
brush fires to helping our resi-
dents in a time of need-anyone

THURSDAY, FEB. 23, 2012 BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH


JJ Etheridge


Etheridge
running for
sheriff
The following is a statement of
intention to run for public office
submitted by the candidate.
It is with great honor and sin-
cere humbleness that I announce


COUNTY
Continued from 1A

When the boards finally sat
down together earlier this month,
everyone agreed there should
be one plan, but although a ma-
jority of county commissioners
now said they didn't want the
problems associated with hav-
ing separate plans, the other two
said they were happy with the
plan the commission chose and
wanted to continue in that di-
rection. Commissioners Doyle
Thomas and Eddie Lewis didn't
even want to consider postpon-
ing'a final decision until 2013,
a possibility raised by Supervi-
sor of Elections Terry Vaughan.
The idea was that commissioners
hesitating to relistrict prior to the
2012 election might be willing to
do so once the election was be-
hind them.
Thomas is not running this
year, but Lewis is. (He won his
district by just 27 votes in 2008!)
The plan they've preferred leaves
them with more than 6,000 resi-
dents each, compared with 5,000
in District 4, 3,700 in District
3 and 3,000 in District 1. The
population of District 1 cannot
be increased without diluting the
minority population. The other
districts could be balanced, and
according to the constitution
should be tb preserve the concept
of one person;one vote.
The fact that the county com-
mission's plan doesn't achieve
that has caused concern there
could be a legal challenge. Offi-
cials on -both boards who oppose
the plan said they wouldn't vote
to spend money to defend it.
Further discussion took place
at the county commission's Feb.
16 meeting, but the issue was left
unresolved. Commissioner Dan-
ny Riddick told the board during
his comment time that his vote
for the plan had been bothering
him. Like other commissioners,
he said he didn't want to lose
constituents, but his prior vote
was not the right decision for the
county because the recommen-
dations of the citizen committee


my intention to.run for the office
of sheriff of Bradford County.
The office of sheriff is one of
enormous trust, honor, and re-
sponsibility. This decision has
been given much thought and
prayer and has rNt been entered
into lightly.
This office should not be one
of politics but one of account-
ability. In the upcoming months,
I will outline a plan for the Brad-
ford County Sheriff's Office. I
believe that this plan will make
our streets safer, run the sheriff's
office more efficiently and cre-
ate a more trusted relationship
between the citizens of Bradford
County and the sheriff's office.
As law enforcement officers,
our job is to enforce laws, pro-
tect life and property, be positive
role models, assist citizens in
any situation, and, most impor-
tantly, make a difference in this
community through partnership
and communication. If elected as
sheriff my job would be to make
sure this community is a better
place for our citizens, to ensure
that we are good stewards of the
tax dollars we have been entrust-
ed with, and that the sheriff's of-


had not been followed.
"I'll be honest, I feel really
bad. I feel like I've wasted their
time," Riddick said of the com-
mittee. He said when he weighs
that along with the confusion
facing voters and the potential
money the county could be cost
in a legal challenge, it would be
better to go with one of the com-
mittee's plans.
Riddick said he made the
wrong vote and the commission's
actions need to be corrected.
Commission Chairman Ross
Chandler said he could have con-
tinued supporting the commis-
sion's plan if the school board
agreed to it as well, but he is not
in favor of proceeding with two
separate plans.
"I'm not comfortable with cre-
ating that split," Chandler said,
recalling the school board mem-
bers said they would be fine with
any of the plans that meet all of
the criteria.
"If it takes this board voting
again ... I'm willing to rescind
my vote and vote on another
plan, but I'm not going to vote
on anything that's going to split
and create two plans," Chandler
said.
Commissioner Lila Sellars
tried to clarify if it was appropri-
ate for her to make a motion to
rescind the prior vote, but was
told by legal counsel it would not
be appropriate because she had
not been on the prevailing side.
She was the only commissioner
to vote against the commission's
map. (Further research would
seem to indicate that the rules of
parliamentary procedure place no
restrictions on who can move to
rescind a prior vote, however.)
Hearing their three fellow com-
missioner,, Lewis and Thomas
warmed to the idea of waiting
until 2013, saying they thought
the school board members were
also in favor of waiting. Chan-
dler also said it was getting too'
lateto agree on a single plan, so
the boards could go with the Dis-
trict 1 changes and come back to
finish the process next year.
Riddick asked if he could make
a motion to move forward and do


fict is held accountable for the
job that we are doing.
A few years ago I made the
decision to run for this very of-
fice, however, due to a possible
transfer with my job, I could not
continue on that journey. At that
time, I personally went to each
of my supporters and explained
to them why I would not be able
to continue the campaign. I now
have an opportunity to again seek
this position of great responsibil-
ity.
I believe that by working in
,both the public and private sec-
tors, I have the unique advantage
and appreciation of how to spend
those hard-earned tax dollars
wisely, and how, as a public ser-
vant, we will be expected to give
an honest day's work for an hon-
est day's pay.
I have been happily married to
Alicia (Clemons) for almost 14
years and we have two wonder-
ful children, Dustin and Lexie
Paige.
I look forward to meeting with
each of you in the days ahead and
working together to make our
Bradford County better.


whatever it takes to get on the
same page with the school board,
but Thomas and Lewis told him
no. Lewis said being on the same
page as the school board means
accepting the school board's
plan, which he called the "Stacey
plan" referring to School Board
Member Stacey Creighton.
Chandler said the commis-
sion would need to hear from
school board members whether
they were willing to wait until
2013, but Sellars said she hadn't
changed her mind about select-
ing one of the three committee-
recommended plans right now.
"By doing this, all we're do-
ing is putting a Band-Aid on it
and we're still coming back in
2013-still got the same prob-
lem," she said.
The others wanted to get to-
gether in a special meeting so
both boards could vote at the
same time. Attorney Will Sexton
was going coordinate with, the
school board's attorney to try to
set up that meeting, but it doesn't
look like the school board will be
attending. The commission has
still scheduled a special meeting
for Monday, Feb. 27, at 9 a.m.
School Board Chairman Ran-
dy Jones said he couldn't speak
for the entire school board but
he said. he didn't see the board
agreeing to postpone a decision
until 2013. He did, however, talk
about the possibility of agreeing
now on a plan that would go into
effect on a future date.
Jones said if the county com-
mission and school board could
agree to one of the plans on the
table that meet all of the criteria,
then the school board might be
willing to set the effective date
as Jan. 1 ,2013. The only changes
necessary before the upcoming
election would be the amend-
ments to District 1, which both
boards agree on.
The county attorney's office
has urged the commission to
clarify the direction it wants to
go in so it can prepare the ordi-
nance necessary to finalize the
redistricting process. Meanwhile,
the window to qualify to run for
office is closing.


Randy Jones


Jones seeking
re-election
Thefollowing is a statement of
intention to run for public office
submitted by the candidate.
Hello, my name is Randy Jones
and I am running for re-election
to the Bradford County School
Board in District 3. The Bradford
County school system is very
special to my family and me. I,
along with my wife, Vorease,
as well as our two daughters,
are graduates of Bradford High
School.
Over the last 15-plus years,
I have worked hard for the,stu-
dents, parents, teachers and staff
who are.involved with the Brad-
ford County school system. With
all of the budget cuts, the loss
of jobs throughout our county
by businesses and the closing of
prisons, we need someone with
experience to be able to maintain
and strive to improve our current


Teaching Farm
announces spring
programs
On the first Sunday of each
month, the Teaching Farm team
will offer interactive workshops
on the farm, located eight miles
south of Starke at the junction of
C.R. 227 and C.R. 18. Programs
will run from 3-4:30 p.m. and
will be followed by an optional
tour of the Sun Harvest EcoVil-
lage and a social and potluck
supper at 5 p.m. in the Peace
Education Center. There is no
charge to attend.
Paul Still will lead the first
program- Forestry, Conser-
vation and Sustainability-on
Sunday, March 3. During this
walking tour of the woodland
trails around the Teaching Farm,
Still will show how the forest


,educational system. I have that
experience and have been part of
a very cr( ive team in using our
school system's funding to be
able to provide the facilities and
the materials needed to educate
our children.
From the first day that I took
office, I have felt that our top
priority (and most important) is
the academic achievement of our
children. It.is still my top priori-
ty. We are constantly looking for
new and better ways to provide
our children with the best educa-
tion possible. We are constantly
looking at teaching strategies
that will help to improve our
children's education as well as
giving them life skills to be pre-
pared for the future. My vision is
to see every child who enters our
school system be able to com-
plete their education and to be
successful in whatever vocation
that they may choose.
We have made great strides
in creating a safe atmosphere in
all schools forour children to be
able to be comfortable in obtain-
ing their education. We have had
issues, but we'learn from those
experiences, take the proper ac-
tions, make whatever changes
need to be made, and move for-
ward to ensure our children can
attend school with no fear or re-
percussions. Our administration,
staff, students, parents and local
law enforcement agencies are all
willing to take whatever steps
necessary to assure the safety of
our children.
I have tried to use a common
sense approach in all of my deci-
sions without violating the poli-
cies and procedures that we have
in place. I have been part of a
school board that has met situ-
ations head-on in resolving any


and wetland ecosystems relate
to the equation "Sustainable
Living=Livable Earth." Plant
identification, aquifer recharge
and forest practices will be dis-
cussed.
The walk will cover about two
miles but will be in two one-mile
loops so walkers, can choose to
cover only one mile. Good walk-
ing shoes are recommended.
The following workshops will
also be offered:
April 1-Tabletop Garden-
ing with Martina Linnehan.
May 6-Dollies without Bor-
ders by Kathy Still.
June 3-Aspects of Sus-
tainable Living by John X. Lin-


situation that may arise. We have
been very diligent in preparing
these policies and procedures so
that everyone is treated fairly and
equally. If we discover that there
is a change that needs to b -'rde
then I have been willing t. i-
dress these changes, along wih,
other school board members, ana
with input from administrators,
staff and parents, to assure their
fairness.
I have worked well with other
local community leaders and
elected officials in the past and
believe that we can continue
that working relationship. I have
met and continue to meet with
several of our elected officials
in Tallahassee and surrounding
counties. This has given me the
opportunity to express Bradford
County's concerns about matters
that directly impact our school
district. I feel as though I have a
good working relationship with
teachers and other school per-
sonnel from each school in our
county. I also feel that I work
well with the administrators from
each school and have learned
from past experiences that there
are proper channels to follow
in helping with parent/student
concerns, teachers concerns and
staff concerns. This is a valuable
asset that I feel that I bring to the
board.
I have been accessible to ev-
eryone in Bradford County.
Even though I represent District
3, I have worked to benefit all of
the children, all of the employ-
ees, and all of the schools in our
system. I would appreciate your
support and prayers as I seek
to be re-elected to the Bradford
County School Board in District
3.

BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, FEB. 23, 201:2


Bradford AG

students get

hydroponic

hooray
BY JIM DEVALERIO
Cooperative Extension Agent

Starting last August, Brad-
ford High School and Bradford
Middle School agriculture stu-
dents have been growing crops
hydroponically in their school
greenhouse.
During that time students un-
der the direction of Ag instructor
Bobbie Acevedo and University
of Florida IFAS Extension edu-
'cators have developed hydro-
ponic production systems for
cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce,
herbs, strawberries and assorted
vegetables. Many of the students
have taken a great interest in the
project and are learning produc-
tion practices that may prepare
them for a professional career
but also provide practical learn-
ing experiences that reinforce
math and science skill sets.
What is hydroponic produc-
tion? The term is "hydroponic"
is commonly used when plants
are grown in soilless media such
as pine bark, peat or sphagnum
-moss and fertilized with soluble
fertilizers. Complete fertilizers
including all of the micronutri-
ents, which plants need in small
quantities, must be provided
since the plants are not in contact


with the soil.
Growing hydroponically in a
greenhouse-controlled environ-
ment provides the opportunity for
plants to grow in a non-stressed
environment, resulting in high
quality and quantity production
yields. These systems are popu-
lar, industry standard production
practices. You may have seen
them when you visited The Land
exhibit at Disney's EPCOT. Now
we have them here at our own
high school!
Make no mistake, growing
hydroponically requires special
training that you don't learn
overnight. Specific varieties of
cucumber and tomato do best in
greenhouse settings. Mixing and
applying fertilizers and main-
taining a healthy greenhouse can
be likened to both art and sci-
ence. Most will agree that riding
a bike reveals much more about
the process than reading about it.
The same is true for farming!
On Jan. 21, 75 professionals
and hobbyists attended a work-
shop at the greenhouse at the
Bradford-Union Career Techni-
cal Center to see how the students
were growing their crops. The
event was a great success with
attendees taking advantage of the
opportunity to see the process
up close. Participants learned
about greenhouse design and op-
eration, outside production,trow
covers for season extension, fer-
tilizer programs, irrigation, soil-
less media systems, lay-flat bags
and-vertical growing systems.
The event started with Bobbie


Acevedo sharing with attendees
about her desire to provide these
learning experiences with her
students. She talked about how
a partnership developed with
UF/IFAS and Bradford County
schools that would provide a rich
experience for her students and
prepare them for the business
world, too, since much of the
produce is sold locally.
The crowd was so large the
group needed to be split into
two rotating learning tracks with
multi-county vegetable produc-
lion agent Bob Hochmuth cover-
ing the inside production and Jim
DeValerio teaching on outside
hydroponic strawberry produc-
tion.
The highlight of the event
was student participation. Many
helped behind the scene-out
of the eye of the camera-but
several actively participated by
sharing their experience with the
audience. It was particularly re-
warding to see students assume
teaching roles. We really have
some very talented students and
teachers in our school system.
If you wanted to attend the
workshop but could not, or if
you didn't even hear about and
wish you did, there will be more
opportunities to visit this unique
learning lab. Call the Bradford
County Extension Office (904-
966-6299) to add you name to
the notification list and we will
contact you when another tour is
scheduled.
Bradford County Extension is
an equal opportunity institution.

It's too early to fertilize. Although
temperatures recently have been warm, there is
still a risk of frost. Hold off until March 1-15.
As far as weed control goes, this is a good time to
apply herbicides. However, Florida-friendly main-
tenance practice is to only treat the areas where you
:need it. Be sure the herbicide you choose is labeled
'for the type grass you have-for example, St. Au-
gustine, Bermuda, Bahia or centipede.

Why shouldn't I spread herbicides over the
entire yard?
Most turf herbicides are not good for our envi-
rorment and not friendly to landscape shrubs and
trees. Tree and shrub roots travel just beneath the
lawn. Symptoms associated with overexposure to

SRWMD
director
resigns
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District Executive Di-
rector David Still announced yes-
terday he is leaving the agency
after 18 years of service. He will
submit an official letter of res-
ignation to the governing board
this week.
"It has been a privilege to
serve as executive director for
the Suwannee district for the past
four years," said Still, who was
appointed to the post in February
2008.
"Our district faces many chal-
.lenges in terms of protecting
our water supply and improv-
ing water quality, and we have
an outstanding, dedicated staff
who I'm confident will carry our
programs forward to meet those
challenges," he added.
In tendering his resignation,
Still said he will remain at the
district until May 1.
Prior to his appointment as ex-
ecutive director, Still served as
the district's legislative liaison.
He reviewed legislation and as-
sisted in the development of state
water policy. Before joining the
district, Still was employed at the
St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District as a professional
engineer in the Department of
Resource Management.
The governing board has not
yet announced its plans or pro-
cess for filling the executive di-
rector position.

FHP ticketing
aggressive
drivers
Drivers on Florida roadways
may want to practice some relax-
ation techniques before hitting
the road this month. The Florida
Highway Patrol has announced
an education and enforcement
campaign to ticket aggressive
truck and car drivers.
In crashes involving cars and
commercial trucks, actions by
drivers account for 88 percent of
the crashes. Only 12 percent of
the crashes are the result of vehi-
cle defects, road conditions or in,
clement weather. The campaign
aims to reduce commercial motor
vehicle-related crashes, injuries
and fatalities by combining out-
reach, education and evaluation
with targeted enforcement activi-
ties to raise awareness among car
and truck drivers about safe driv-
ing behaviors.
"The Florida Highway Patrol
is committed to keeping our road-
ways safe for all motorists, and
we are pleased to partner with the
Florida Trucking Association on
this safety campaign," said Col.
David Brierton. "Whether you

are driving a commercial motor
vehicle or a passenger car, it is
a driver's responsibility to drive
with care."
On Feb. 27-29, troopers state-
wide will be on the lookout for
violations attributed to aggres-
sive driving suct as." following
too closely, unsafe lane change
and speeding; committed by
truck and car drivers as they in-
teract on Florida highways.
In addition to targeted enforce-
ment, the campaign will use bill-
board and radio messaging to in-
crease awareness among car and
truck drivers of safe driving be-
haviors around one another and
of the heightened risk of receiv-
ing a ticket for a violation. In ad-
dition, FHP will collaborate with
the Florida Trucking Association
to conduct activities at schools
and community centers around
the state to educate drivers on
how to share the road safely with
trucks.
FTA President and CEO Mary
Lou Rajchel said, "Safety on
Florida's roadways is a coop-
erative effort by cars and trucks
alike. As an industry, safety is at
the top of our minds-it matters
above all else. We are pleased
-with the opportunity to take our
No Zone message about safe
driving behaviors around big
rigs on the road with the Florida
Highway Patrol. Pairing the 'big
trucks equal big blind spots' mes-
sage with the opportunity to 'see
what our drivers see' through
community education is a unique
ap~iroach that we believe will
promote responsible driving for
everyone."
The Institute of Police Tech-
nology and Management will
conduct surveys prior to and
after the education and enforce-
ment campaign to measure the
campaign's effectiveness.

Toxic Roundup
Feb. 25
Bring household hazardous
wastes such as paint, insecti-
Scides, used oil, solvents, fluores-
cent lamps, used batteries, old
fertilizer, cleaning chemicals and
stale gasoline to the 2012 Brad-
ford County Toxic Roundup.
The Toxic Roundup will be at
the Bradford County Courthouse
parking lot on Saturday, Feb. 25,
from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. These items
are some of the many household
hazardous wastes that the Tbxic
Roundup will safely dispose of
for you. Proper disposal of these
products will help prevent con-
tamination of our water supply
and keep our environment safe.
Simply bring your household
hazardous wastes to the collec-
tion center and the trained atten-
dants will unload and handle all
your hazardous wastes; there is


no need to even get out of your
car! The process is quick, easy,
and free of charge for Bradford
County residents (and fee based
for businesses.)
To transport these hazardous
materials, carefully pack the haz-
ardous waste containers in boxes
with dividers. If a container leaks,
pack it in a larger container with
an absorbent material such as cat
litter or oil absorbent. Do not mix
different or unknown materials
together. All containers must be
labeled. If you cannot identify
the contents label it "unknown."
SDo not bring explosives such
as ammunition, dynamite and
blasting agents; reactives such
as crystallized ethers, picric acid
and sodium and phosphorus met-
als; infectious wastes; or pressur-
ized cylinders such compressed
gases.
For more information, call
Donny Wise at 904-966-6212.
The Toxic Roundup is sponsored
by the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and
Bradford County Commission.

Spend an
evening
in Paris
The Starke Woman's Club is
hosting "An Evening in Paris"
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.

Lawtey police chief to firefighters: slow down


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

Lawtey Police Chief Butch
Jordan complained about speed-
ing firefighters at the town's
February council meeting.
"We're not hardballing the fire
department," he said, "but these
firemen that are going to these
fires and answering these calls,
they need to slow their vehicles
down. They are running 50,
60 miles-per-hour, right up the
highway here, going to the fire
station and it needs to stop. They
can have all the lights they want
to, they still can't speed. It's


against the law."
After the meeting, Jordan em-
phasized he wasn't complaining
about emergency vehicles leav-
ing the station to answer calls,
but firefighters arriving to the
station in their own personal ve-
hicles. Many times when coun-
ty dispatchers page Station 5,
volunteers first drive their own
vehicles to the station before
boarding an emergency vehicle
to respond to a call.
Lawtey Fire Chief Mike Brown
said he has told his volunteers
that it is "alright for them to go
a little fast" to the station" when
responding to calls. He also said


he has told them to not speed ex-
cessively.
Brown was not at the Feb. 6
meeting when Jordan complained
about the volunteers. However,
when told of the police chief's
complaints he said, "If it was
his house that was on fire, or his
family member that was dying, I
don't think he would be that con-
cerned about us speeding to the
station." The fire chief added,
"Ask anybody around here. If
you have a family member that's
dying and you need help, do you
want us to go 20 mph or do you
want us to go 50?"

Pam Whittle, president of the

and a business services represen-
tative for FloridaWorks,'said the
organization's business competi-
tive committee worked on both
the application process and op-
erating rules for employers inter-
ested in taking advantage of the
program.
She said employers who want-
ed to participate in the grant had


to provide non-entry-level jobs
to currently unemployed work-
ers. Businesses must commit to
retaining the workers beyond the
2014 funding period and must
also provide workers compensa-
tion and health insurance to the
employees.
Hospitals and health care com-
panies, in addition to biotech and
medical devices enterprises are
eligible to participate.
Whittle added that the commit-
tee is still a long way from final-
izing the application and rules.

Reddish touched to


be named Santa Fe


Woman of Distinction


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Sylvia Reddish is a talker.
She'll admit as much herself.
Therefore, her reaction upon
hearing she was chosen as a
Santa Fe College Woman of
Distinction would've surprised
those who know her, and prob-
ably surprised her a little bit as
well.
"(I was) speechless, and that's
saying a lot for me," Reddish
said.
Reddish said receiving such
.an honor was unexpected, but
to those who know her, it is fit-
ting. You see, Reddish's gift of
talking comes out of the fact that
she's a true people person. She
cares for others and is not hesi-
tant to devote her time to help
others.
"Having known Sylvia for
many years, I can attest that she
-is among the most giving persons
you could ever know," Terry
Vaughan, the Bradford County
supervisor of elections, wrote in
a letter in support of her nomina-
tion as a Woman of Distinction.
"Whenever someone becomes
ill or experiences a death in the
family, Sylvia is often the first at
their door with a calte or casse-
Srole in hand."
In essence, Reddish couldn't
be any other way, thanks to par-
ents Dave and Hazel Paulk.
"I came from a home where
my parents were that way,"
Reddish said. "They were just
always willing to go the extra
mile for someone, even though I
didn't understand it at that age.,'
What Reddish came to learn
was that doing something for
others was a blessing for her par-
ents. In time, Reddish benefitted
in the same way.
"Sylvia has carried on the
family tradition of community
mindedness," Ray Norman, the
Bradford County clerk of the
courts, wrote in his letter of sup-
port of Reddish to Santa Fe Col-
lege.
In his letter, Norman also
wrote how Reddish is quick to
lend her musical talents where
needed.
"T have personally witnessed
Sylvia give her time wholeheart-
edly to others as she is called
upon almost on a weekly ba-
sis-if not more-to share her
God-given vocal talent by sign-
ing at weddings and funerals for
families within our community,"
Norman wrote.
Reddish said she has been
singing since the age of 5 and is
quick to add, "I don't sing with
a Southern drawl." As a child
and young adult, she sang on
a Gainesville country-western
radio show and-as part of the
USO-on Navy ships docked in
Jacksonville. She had her own


Sylvia Reddish


weekly radio show in Starke.
"My theme song was 'Dear
Hearts and Gentle People,'"
Reddish said. "That was what I
sang when I opened (the show)
and closed it."
She also used to sing as part of
floor shows sponsored by Sealt-
est Milk out of Jacksonville at
conventions and other gather-
ings throughout the country.
In reality, though, Reddish
said she was no different from
Norman, who often joined her
in sharing his musical talents
before the demands of the public
office he holds.
"Ray has always given of his
time," Reddish said. "I was the
same way. I gave of my time
freely and loved to do it."
As best friend Sylvia Tatum-
a 2003 Woman of Distinction-
put it in her letterof-nomination,-
"Sylvia's love and care of the
people of the community is her
driving force."
Reddish is a member of the
Bradford County Community
Development/SHIP advisory
board and was appointed to the
county's redistricting commit-
tee. She is very active in Altrusa
of Starke, of which she is a char-
ter member.
As active as she is in Altrusa,
helping to raise funds to endow
Santa Fe College scholarships
annually, for example, Reddish
is more involved in something
near and dear to her heart-the
American Cancer Society and
the annual Relay for Life fund-
raiser.
"1 do more with that than any-
thing else," Reddish said.
Her support of the American
Cancer Society, Relay for Life
and of those with cancer is per-
sonal. Reddish is a breast cancer'
survivor, as is Tatum. The two
are both active in the American
Cancer Society's Reach for Re-
covery program in which vol-
unteers reach out to those with
.breast cancer, whether in person
. or via phone. Reach for Recov-
ery volunteers are breast cancer


survivors who give patients and
families someone to talk to about
their feelings, fears and concerns
as well someone to ask questions
of and receive knowledgeable an-
swers from.
Reddish knows how important
it is to have someone to lean on
following a diagnosis of breast
cancer.
"They think it's the end of
the world," Reddish said. "Of
course, I did, too, for the first
little bit."
Reddish recalled how she
was, of course, there for her
friend Tatum when she was di-
agnosed with cancer.
"She had cancer first," Red-
dish said. "I went through it
with her. We'd do things to-
gether. When she'd be down,
we'd go eat, go shopping or do
something.
"Then, around two years later,
here I am (with cancer). Sylvia
was my support person also be-
sides my wonderful, wonderful
family."
Becoming involved with
Reach to Recovery seemed to
be a natural progression for
Reddish, who would be asked
by people in the community to
visit those who had just been di-
agnosed with cancer.
"People knew what I had
been through," Reddish said.
"They would call me or stop me
on the street and say, 'I have a
sister with'cancer,' or, 'I have
a daughter with cancer. Would
you go talk to them?'
"That's really how it started
out,-and 99 percent of the time, I
knew who the person was who I
was going to see."
Her efforts to reach out to oth-
ers has impressed Katie Griffin,
a regional trainer for the Ameri-
can Cancer Society.
"In addition to providing sup-
port and information, she always
goes the extra mile in helping pa-
tients by nurturing them, learn-
ing of their needs and meeting
those needs by taking them for
doctor visits, chemo and radia-
tion treatments,or referring them.
for services she cannot provide,"
Griffin wrote in her Woman of
Distinction support letter.
Besides helping those with
cancer and being active in Al-
trusa, Reddish is a supporter of
Santa Fe College and its pres-
ence locally. She and her family
were contributors to the estab-
lishment of the Andrews Center
in Starke, which she said has
made it so much easier for stu-
dents to start their college years
at home and not have to spend as
much time driving to Santa Fe's
maincampus in Gainesville.
"There are people who
couldn't further their education

Bradford High School wrestlers earning medals at the state finals are (I-r) Phillip
James, Jarrald Forsyth and Devin Paulk.


3 from BHS earn medals


at state wrestling finals


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford High School ju-
nior Phillip James placed third,
while senior Devin Paulk and
sophomore Jarraid Forsyth took
fourth and sixth, respectively, at
the Florida High School Athletic
Association Wrestling Finals on
Feb. 17-18 in Lakeland.
Though he didn't earn a med-
al, junior Cody Hankerson was
one win away from earning one.
"I felt like the guys we took
down there wrestled really
well," Bradford coach Dana Ar-
thur said. "In fact, they wrestled
the best they have all year."
James was making his second
straight appearance at state. He
was one win away from earning
a medal last year and put himself
in serious contention to win it all
this year.


"I'm glad that I've got a good
team and good coaches who
helped me make it that far,"
James said.
James,, who competed in the
1'95-pound class, defeated Jer-
emy Ramirez of Fbrt Lauderdale
e(alvary Christian 8-1 to start the
tournament. He then-plinned Ben
Willard of Fort Myers Evangeli-
cal Christian in 2:22-before be-
ing pinned by Luke Hanson of
North.Marion in 1:49.
Arthur said James caught a bad
break in a match he shouldn't
have lost, but James rebounded
to win two straight, including a
4:26 pin of Samuel Adams of
Hollywood Chaminade to take
third.
"He bounced back after that
loss," Arthur said. "He was like
a man on a mission."
Paulk, like Forsyth and Han-
kerson, was making his first ap-


pearance at state, wrestling in
the 160 class. He pinned Nick
Davis of Fort Lauderdale Car-
dinal Gibbons in 3:05 to start
things off before losing 11-7
to Spencer Baxter of New Port
Richey Gulf.
Arthur said Paulk is at his
6est when he's standing up, but
Baxter was the one wrestler who"
could counter that. Baxter is ap-
proximately 6 feet tall and could
use his long arms to keep Paulk
at bay, Arthur said.
"He kept Devin away and kept
Devin from doing what Devin
does best," Arthur said.
Paulk bounced back, defeat-
ing Logan Fletcher of Suwannee
11-3 and pinning Julius Seek-
ins of Miami Florida Christian
in 4:34. However, Paulk faced
Baxter again, losing 5-1,

:. He felt he should've done bet-
ter, but Paulk said he couldn't
complain about fourth place in
his first time at state.
"It's a very good feeling,"
Paulk said.
Forsyth wrestled in the 138

Circuit judge decision upheld


BY JIM MCGAULEY
Baker County Press Publisher
Last summer the family of
a 4-year-old child given to her
marital father by a circuit judge
took to the street in front of the
courthouse, and to the airwaves
and blogosphere, to register its
displeasure.
-They protested that Circuit
Judge Phyllis Rosier erred griev-
ously in July.when she awarded
custody of Miranda-Wilkerson,
formerly of Glen St. Mary, to
Donald Ray Coleman of St.
George, Ga.
SMr. Coleman is not the child's
biological father. He was mar-
ried to Miranda's late mother
Trista when the girl was born in
July, 2007. A month later, Mrs.
Coleman died in a vehicle acci-
dent in north BakeroCounty.
The couple had three other
daughters, all of whom remained
in the custody of their father.
SThe rub, according to the
child's grandmother Rita Man-
ning of Macclenny, was that Mr.
Coleman is a registered sex of-
fender. Plus, Ms. Manning said,
she had been caring for the child
since birth.
In a series of twists that turned
the custody dispute into a "made
for the media" story, the child's
biological father James Larkey
Wilkerson of Macclenny, filed
for custody of Miranda after
Judge Rosier awarded it to Mr.
Coleman.
Add to that the fact that Mr.
Coleman's sex offender status
is rooted in his relationship with
the late mother when she was
but 14 years of age. Her mother,
Ms. Manning, approved of the
union.
:. So, what's the status of the
case now?
In general, the tide has turned
in favor of the judge, who was
maligned by the grandmother,
her family and in the media.
:A three-judge panel of the
First District Court of Appeals
in Tallahassee last month upheld
Judge Rosier's awarding of cus-

Yard sale to
benefit Relay
for Life
A yard sale hosted by the
fundraising teams of the Relay
for Life of Bradford County will
take place. this Saturday, Feb.
25, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at
the town square on Call Street in
downtown Starke.
A variety of items, including


Judge Phyllis Rosier
tody to Mr. Coleman. It affirmed
without comment that she fol-
lowed state statute in giving the
child to the man married to her
mother when she was born.
Late last year, Judge Rosier
rejected the paternity-based ap-
peal by Mr. Wilkerson, whose
relationship with the late mother
was the cause of Mr. Coleman
filing for divorce.
The judge's reasoning, indi-
rectly affirmed by the separate
appeals court ruling, was that
Mr. Wilkerson's claim as the
biological father does'not trump
what Florida law requires judges
to do-award custody to the par-
ent married to the mother at the
time of the baby's birth.
Ms. Manning, who was placed
on probation in 2007 for child
neglect due to acquiescence on
her teen daughter's affair with
Mr. Coleman, declined to com-
ment on the appeals court ruling
this week on advice of her attor-
ney.
"We've asked the court for its
reasoning in rejecting that ap-
peal, so we won't have any com-
ment until we hear from them,"
said Joseph Manniko, the Mac-
clenny attorney- representing
Ms. Manning.
The court's decision on Janu-
ary 19 was delivered per curiam,
which means it did not go into
detail.
The grandmother initially filed


food, will be for sale to help
teams raise funds in support of
the American Cancer Society's
Relay for Life fundraising walk.
The Bradford County Relay is
scheduled for April 28-29.

Crosshorn
Ministries in-
vites all to
Jan. 26 fishing
seminar
Crosshorn Ministries, an
outdoors ministry group for
males of all ages, welcomes
Lamar Williams, professional


for adoption of the girl, trigger-
ing the custody petition by Mr.
Coleman and the judge's ruling
that brought the case to the pub-
lic's attention. The grandmother
sought an airing of the case in
the media when she contacted a
Jacksonville television station in
July.
From there, the case led off
in other directions, including
a court petition by First Coast
News to be allowed into an Aug.
10 court hearing it believed was
on a criminal contempt matter
rather than an adoption. Hear-
ings on adoption are closed to
the public.
Mr. Coleman requested the
hearing on a motion to hold Ms.
Manning in contempt for speak-
ing to the media about the case.
She was never cited for contempt
but complied with the ban after
the two-hour closed session.
The television station ap-
pealed Judge Rosier's ruling de-
nying entry to the hearing. The
appeals court dismissed it.
In another fallout from the
Wilkerson case, Mr. Manniko
and his law partner/wife Barbara
Baris sought to remove Judge
Rosier from 18 other cases pend-
ing before her, arguing their re-
lationship with her soured over,
among other things, the judge's
accusation that they orchestrated
the media publicity blitz; The at-
torneys denied doing so.
The appeals court refused to
remove the judge from their cas-
es, responding that the attorneys
failed to present evidence of bias
that rises to'the level that would
justify taking her off other, pend-
ing cases.
Judge Rosier, after the flare-up
of negative publicity, removed
herself from any further deliber-
ations involving Miranda Wilk-
erson or other related parties.
Circuit Judge Toby S. Monaco
of Gainesville was appointed in
her place.

Man swiped jail.
game, candles Police: fast-
from Walmart, food couple


carried
gun during
burglary
A judge sentenced Tioy M.
Kearse, 27, to 18 months proba-
tion after he pleaded no contest
to two August 2010 theft-related
charges.
The Bradford County resident
pleaded to felony petit theft and
to possession of a firearm by a
felon. The judge adjudicated
him guilty of the crimes and also
ordered him to pay $20 in court
costs. Prosecutors dropped addi-
tional charges of petit theft and
burglary.
According to a police report,
on Aug. 5, a Walmart associ-
ate saw Kearse conceal a video
game in his back pocket and
place two candles and a lighter
in the bottom compartment of
his shopping cart The assopi--
ate told police Kearse then paid
for an air conditioning window
unit and a can of paint but failed
to pay for the video game, can-
dles and lighter. The unpaid
merchandise carried a retail val-
ue-of $33.53.
In a separate incident, a
Center Street couple accused
the 27-year-old of entering
their residence uninvited on
Aug. 2 and demanding, then
taking a bottle of Endocet
pills. The couple claimed that
while Kearse demanded the pain
reliever, they saw a black and
silver handgun holstered within
the man's pahts. One of the vic-
tims later identified Kearse in a
photo lineup.
Petit theft is ordinarily a mis-
demeandr. Since Kearse had
two prior such convictions in
2003, Florida law allowed pros-
ecutors to classify the Walmart
occurrence as a felony.

Inmate tried

to heat water,
started fire
A former Florida State Pris-
on inmate was sentenced to 18
months after he started a fire in
his cell.
Tondrick Terrell Hough, 48,
pleaded no contest to arson of
an occupied structure. A judge
adjudicated him guilty of the
charge.
.According to court papers, the
inmate tried to heat water using
a cigarette lighter and activated
a smoke detector in the process.
At the time of the incident,
Feb. 25, 2010, Hough was
serving a 50-year sentence 'for
'an armed robbery in Putnam
County. He is now at RMC and
is'scheduled to be released April
1,2036.



Starke
police raid
Pine Forest
apartments,
arrest 2
A half-dozen Starke police
officers broke through the front
door of a Pine Forest apartment
and rushed into the residence
just before 4 a.m. Friday. Mo-
ments later they arrested John
Andrew Slocum, 29, charging
him with three counts of sell-
ing marijuana. Police obtained
a search warrant prior to raid-
ing the Westside rental and sur-
prised the man while he was on
his living room couch.
After detaining the 290year-
old, officers found 18 grams of
marijuana in one bag within the
man's apartment, and an addi-
tional 10 grams packaged in 14
sinaller bags, according to a po-
lice report.
After securing the first apart-
rment, several officers sprinted
across the parking lot to exe-
c4te a second arrest warrant on
43-year-old Christina M. Bust-
erna. According to Captain Bar-
.ry Warren, Busterna obtained


medications through prescrip-
tions, then sold the drugs to oth-
er individuals. Officers found a
15-year-old minor in Busterna's
home, and took the teenager to
another Pine Forest resident
before transporting Busterna to


took money
from Taco
Bell safe
After an Arby's employee
slipped into Starke's Taco Bell
and helped himself to $367
from the restaurant's safe, his
girlfriend, who was employed
by the Mexican-themed eatery,
picked up the burglar and drove
him away, according to a Starke
police report.
Justin Lee Forsyth, 22, and
Brittany Nicole Warren, 18, both
of Starke were arrested in Febru-
ary for burglary and larceny.
According to police, on the
morning of Sept. 27, the man-
ager opening Taco Bell found
its back door open and the safe
empty.
The following day, investiga-
tor Mark Lowery .interviewed
the restaurant's employees, in-
cluding Warren. The detective
wrote in a report that during his
talk with Warren, the 18-year-
old questioned the investiga-
tor about the type of evidence
he had already collected and
whether he had obtained finger-
prints at the crime scene.
In December Lowery got a
tip that Forsyth, who worked at
Arby's, was involved with the
heist, and noted that Warren was
the man's girlfriend.
The investigator wrote that on
iDec. 7 he interviewed Warren at
:the police department.
"I advised Brittany that I
knew about Justin going into
Taco Bell and I asked her what
her part was."
Lowery wrote that the 18-year-
old started to weep.
"I asked Brittany why she was
crying and she said, 'I knew we
would get caught eventually."'
According to the detective,
Warren then confessed that on
the morning of the break-in
she picked up her boyfriend at
Arby's after midnight and
dropped him off in front of Taco
Bell. While she- waited--at the
Swamp Car Wash, Forsyth en-
tered the building'through the
back door, walked to the safe,
which was unlocked, and took
the cash. After getting a call
from Forsyth, Warren met the
22-year-old at a railroad cross-
ing, and picked him up.
Police later interviewed For-
syth who, according to Low-
ery, corroborated Warren's ver-
sion of the burglary. Lowery
wrote that the 22-year-old told
him the pair had been planning
the break-in for some time, but
that his girlfriend kept delay-
ing the execution of the plan be-
cause she didn't want managers
that she liked to get into trouble.

innocent until adjudicated guilty
by a court.


Man sentenced
to 1 year in
prison for
stealing jacket
A Starke man convicted of
his eighth theft charge was sen-
tenced to a year in prison.
Willie David Houston, 51,
pleaded no contest to felony
petit theft. A judge adjudicated
him guilty of the offense.
According to a Starke police
report, on Oct. 6, just after 3
p.m., a Walmart associate saw
Houston,take a $27.70 jacket
off one of the store's racks. The
51-year-old put on the clothing,
walked over to the retailer's vi-
sion center, and briefly spoke
with an employee of that depart-
ment before exiting the building.
He then hopped on a bicycle and'
peddled away without paying
for the merchandise.
The store associate later iden-
tified Houston through a photo
lineup.
The defendant was convict-
ed of petit theft in 1998, 1999,
2001, 2006, 2008 and twice in
2003. All the prior thefts oc-

degree felony.
According to court papers, on
March 7, 2010, Johnson threat-
ened correctional officers and
was ordered to the back of his
cell duringmeaLtiime, as a safety
precaution.
According to a report, the
inmate refused to move to the
back of the cell. Officers then
bypassed him while dispensing
breakfast and Johnson retaliated
by attacking the fire suppression
system.'

Continued from 1B

if it wasn't for the ability that we
have here (with Santa Fe)," Red-
dish said.
Reddish's children graduated
*from Santa Fe, and she currently
.has a grandson attending the
school.
"I can't say enough good
about Santa Fe and how well
they work in this community,"
Reddish said.
"This community" was not
Reddish's original home, but
it's the one she claims. She and
her family, who lived in Jack-
sonville, hadta cabin on Crosby
Lake. Reddish and her family
eventually moved to Bradford
County when she was 11.
"I'm a real Bradfdrd Countian
at heart," Reddish said. "There's
just no better place than this."
Reddish's mother ran for a
seat on the Bradford County
commission, but did not win,
which was probably more a sign
of the times in regard to women
holding such positions than any-
thing else. As it was, Reddish
said her mother lost by a small
number of votes.
Her father ran for a seat on the
commission four years later and
won. During his term, though,
he suffered a heart attack arid
passed away. Florida's governor
appointed Reddish's mother to
serve the remainder of the term.
Hazel Paulk then ran for another
term and was successful this
time. She was the first female
commissioner.
Reddish said only her job with
Liberty Insurance prevented her,
too, from seeking a commission
seat. Her employer felt it would
interfere with her job.
"I would have run, because
people tried to get me to," Red-
dish said.
She worked for Liberty Insur-
ance for 22 years. She once told
the Bradford County Telegraph
in an interview that her husband,
Vernon, said she had found the
perfect career.
"He said it was a job that re-


quired me to talk and ride (in a
vehicle) a lot-the two things I
like best," Reddish said.
The job was a joy. Reddish
said she truly loved her interac-
tion with people on a day-to-day
basis. It prompted her in an ear-
lier Bradford County Telegraph
interview to say, "The good peo-
ple of Bradford County made
my job wonderful."
According to Ray Norman,
Reddish is one of those "good
people."
"We here in Bradford County
are blessed to have Mrs. Sylvia
Reddish as part of our com-
munity," Norman wrote in his
Woman of Distinction support
letter. "Bradford County is a
better place because of upstand-
ing, community-minded citizens
such as her."
Reddish and her husband have
been married 51 years. She said
Vernon has been very support-
ive and understanding of all the
activities she takes part in.
"It doesn't matter what time it
takes for me to do other things,"
Reddish said. "He's proud that
healthwise I'm able to do it."
Reddish and her husband have
two children-Barry and his
wife, Chanda, and Lisa and her
husband, Billy Gault-and five
grandchildren.
Also, Reddish has a sister-
Faye Andrews-who lives in
Starke, while Vernon has five
brothers-plus one who is de-
ceased-who all live in Brad-
ford County.
Between family and friends,:
one would expect Reddish
would have quite a support
group at the Santa Fe College
Women of Distinction Program,
which will be held Thursday,
March 15,from 4:30 p.m. until 7
p.m. in the Fine Arts Hall at the
college's Northwest Campus in
Gainesville. She will be honored.

a semifinal game on Feb. 21 in
Lake Butler.
It was a game of runs as the
Tigers (14-13) had an answer
every time The Villages got
close. The Buffalo (5-22) ral-
lied from a 14-point deficit and
pulled to within one point early
in the third quarter, but Union
was able to score 12 straight
points to maintain a double-digit
lead for most of the remainder of
the game.
The Buffalo cut Union's lead
to eight early in the fourth, only
to watch Alexander score six
points during a 9-0 run.
Alexander helped pick up the
slack as Shaimea Maeweather-
one of the team's leading scor-
ers-spent the majority of his
time on the bench.
"Carl's definitely one of our
leaders who will step up and car-
ry our team," Union head coach
Rufus Jefferson said.
The Tigers will now host
Chiefland-a 54-42 winner over
Wildwood on Saturday, Feb. 25,
at 7 p.m. to determine who gets
to advance to the Final Four in
Lakeland. The state semifinals
will be played Tuesday, Feb. 28,
with the championship game to
be played on Wednesday, Feb.

Tornadoes eliminated in quarterfinals by Mount Dora


li BY CLIFF SMELLEY
regionall News/Sports Editor
J ount Dora outscored the
ford boys' basketball team
13 in the second quarter to
ld a 14-point lead en route to
ding the Tornadoes a 67-46
Sand eliminating them from
.^ostseason in a Class 4A re-
ona1quarterfinal game on Feb:
iin Mount Dora.
Bradford head coach Traavis
handlerr said Mount Dora was
making all of the hustle plays he
would've liked to have seen his
tmn make.
"We just kind of left our heart,
hustle and all our effort on the
bus," Chandler said. "We just
didn't bring it. (Mount Dora)
just played a little more hungri-
er- They played with more of a
sense of urgency than we did.
As a reward, Mount Dora
(17-11) advanced to this past
1-uesday's semifinals to take on
ihAVilliston team that defeated
iBradford in double overtime to
win District 5. Williston (19-7)
advanced by defeating Trinity
Catholic (17-11).
SChandler admitted his players
may have been affected by their
desire to get another shot at Wil-
liston after the District 5 tourna-
ment.


Justin McBride (right), pictured against Santa Fe in
the District 5-4A tournament, was the only player in
double figures in Bradford's loss to Mount Dora.


"I think a little bit of it was


they still had that Williston game


on their minds," Chandler said.
"They wanted revenge. I d6n't
want to say they overlooked
(Mount Dora), but they did want
to beat Williston."
Mount Dora had four players
score in double figures, exhibit-
ing the kind of balance Chandler
wanted to see from his team.
The Tornadoes (15-14) got 21
points and 10 rebounds from
Justin McBride, but no other
player reached double figures in
points.
"We needed contributions
from five different players on the
floor," ;Chandler said. "We just
didn't get that (on Feb. 16)."
Chandler said he hopes the
loss motivates the team next sea-
son. Bradford loses only three
players to graduation and will
return its entire starting lineup.
In the locker room after the
Mount Dora loss, Chandler said
he saw a look in his players' eyes
that indicated they were ready to
do whatever it took to get bet-
ter next year. It's the same kind
of look the third-year coach saw
with his first team, which lost in


the first round of the playoffs,
but rebounded the next season


to play fo
ship.

Coleman said there was some
doubt as to whether one of the
team members would be able
to participate, but he showed up
with a parent ready to play. The
player in question said he had to
show-up because he didn't want
his absence to prevent his team
from being able to compete.
That kind of thinking and cori-
cern for each other has been ex-
hibited by all the Bradford Coun-
ty Special Olympians, Coleman
said. It's one of the reasons, she
said, why having a presence in
the Special Olympics again is so
important.

"It builds these skills of em-
pathy and caring for each other,"
Coleman said.
