Explosions at

Camp Blanding
Explosive noise will be heard in
the area of Camp Blanding March
5-9 as the Florida Army National
Guard's 3rd Battalion, 116th Field
Artillery fires its new HIMARS
(High Mobility Artillery Rocket
System).
As usual, the Florida National
Guard continues to make every
effort to minimize noise but there
are times such as this when noise
may seem louder than normal to
the public, and as the wind direc-
tion shifts.

Affairs Office at 904-823-0166.


Commissioners choose new district map


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Three of five county commission-
ers attempted to settle the redistricting
issue in a special session on Monday,
although they weren't able to convince"
two fellow board members to vote with
them.
Commissioners Ross Chandler, Lila
Sellars and Danny Riddick selected one
of the maps recommended by a com-
mittee of citizens convened to consider
redistricting options.
While Commissioner Eddie Lewis
was willing to join the others in ap-
proving the map, he wanted to delay
implementation until after the 2012
election. His seat is up for election this
year, but so are Chandler's and Sellars'
seats.
Whether the issue is really settled
depends on the school board. While the
county commission chose one of the
recommended maps, it did not select
the map the school board previously
said it preferred. Commissioners, how-
ever, are taking school board members
at their word that they could support
any of the maps recommended by the
redistricting committee.
In order to avoid having one set of

Carol Milner point out some of the details of the redistricting map

another for school board members, the
school board will now need to agree


to switch its preference to the com-
mission's choice. The school board

Voyeur pleads to child porn charges


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor


Doyce Dean Griffis pleaded guilty
Feb. 23 to five federal counts of pro-
ducing videos, of child pornogra-
phy. Each count carries a minimum
mandatory term of 15 years in prison
and a maximum of 30 years. In addi-
tion, Griffis couldhefinecd.forup..to.
$250,000 on each count.
Bradford deputies arrested the


48-year-old last April. State prosecu-
tors charged him with 20 counts of
voyeurism and four counts of posses-
sion of child pornography.

.On Sept. 28, a federal grand jury in-
dicted Griffis on seven counts of pro-
ducing child pornography, two counts
of receiving child pornography and
..one count of possessing child pornog-
raphy.
The federal indictment claims that


over an 11-year period, Griffis secret-
ly taped dozens of women and over
20 minors while they used his tanning
bed. It also lists seven specific in-
stances when he videoed children:
twice in 2002, three times in 2009,
and twice in 2011. -

The indictment backs up his Griff-
is's claim.that he never distributed the
material but used it only for his own
sexual gratification.


Teacher pay deal could be ratified


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

.Negotiations between both sides
were relatively short, but by the end
representatives from the school board
and local teachers'union agreed to try
to ratify an agreement on-pay.
The school district didn't budge
from its offer of two steps for eligible
employees plias one percent added to
the salary schedule-a proposal fund-
ed by more than half a million dollars
in unanticipated revenue from higher-
than-expected enrollment for 2012.
Those step increases apply to em-
ployees who were working in the
2009 and/or 2010 school years and
who remain employed as of the date
the agreement is ratified. Teacher
and other school personnel ineligible
for step increases will still receive 1
percent added to their paychecks. Pay
raises will be retroactive to July 1,
2011, and will appear on checks at the
end of March, presuming both union
and school board members approve
the deal.


Representatives for the Bradford
Education Association wanted 'to
push the raise from 1 to 3 percent,
retroactive to Jan. 1, saying that this
was just around $65,000 more than
the $577,000 the school district was
already offering. BEA negotiator
George Bowen asked if the school
board had been made aware of that
figure. District negotiator Jerry Cop-
Ion said they had, and he said they
were also aware that two steps plus
three percent would cost an additional
$840,000 next year.
They talked potential staffing po-
tential enrollment changes. Bowen
knocked Coplon's predictions, saying
the superintendent preaches "doom
and gloom" while the district fund
balance grows. Meanwhile, employ-
ees have gone without even step rais-
es, he said.
Indignation didn't get BEA far as
the session broke up for individual
caucuses less than 15 minutes after be-
ginning. BEA met with employees in
attendance in a closed session. After-
an hour apart, both sides came back to


the table, and BEA reps presented an
offer in writing. Bowen said employ-
ees feel morale is at an all-time low
and that the deal would do little to lift
spirits. They would still be two steps
behind, Bowen said, and a one percent
Raise after four years "is nowhere near
being fair compensation."
Nevertheless, two steps plus one
percent is what the district offered
and it's what BEA negotiators said
they would take to employees for a
vote. Bowen said they feared the su-
perintendent and school board were
so convinced "the sky is falling" that
they would not recede from that posi-
tion to find additional money.
The district told employees all ad-
ditional money from the unanticipated
enrollment would be used for raises,
and that is what the proposal is based
on. Money set aside at the end of the
last fiscal year is supposedly being
used to offset funding cuts.
BEA members will vote on the deal
sometime before the school board's
meeting on March 12, at which time
the school board will vote.


FHP: Darby homicide investigation not complete


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor


A spokesperson for the Florida
Highway Patrol said his agency's in-
vestigation into the death ofa 5-month-
old child might take six more weeks.
Felicity Rose Darby was critically
hurt in a Nov. 7, 2011, traffic crash
on Starke's West Madison Street.'The
infant was pronounced dead the fol-
lowing day.


Also injured in the crash were Felic-
ity's sister, 5-year-old Brielle Leanna
Darby and her mother, 30-year-old
Danielle Marie Florence-Darby.
According to an FHP report, Flor-
ence-Darby, was driving westbound
on Madison Street (State Road 100) at
11:35 a.m. when she lost control of her
2006 Kia and traveled across the east-
bound lane of Madison Street,jumped
a concrete curb and traveled along the
sidewalk. The car then tracked back


across the street onto the north shoul-
der where it struck a street sign, fence
and tree before stopping.
FHP Lt. Justin Asbur' said the in-
vestigation into the 5-month-old's
death should conclude in around six
weeks, which would be some time in
April. He added that investigators are
still processing toxicology evidence.

sion's original choice (approved 4-1
with Sellars dissenting) because it was
not approved by the committee and
did not balance district populations.
Chandler and Riddick joined Sellars
Monday in approving a plan the school
board could agree to.
Plan A, as it was designated, pre-
serves District 1, represented by Chan-
dler, as a minority majority district
and balances the populations of the
remaining districts. It is also consid-
ered the least political choice since no
elected officials had a hand in drawing
the lines. Assistant Elections Supervi-
sor Carol Milner drew the lines based
on established census blocks in order
to raise the black population in Dis-
trict 1 back to 51 percent and to even
population differences in District 2-5.
She also made sure no commissioner
or school board member would be cut
out of his or her district.
It was a difficult process that took
hours of work on her part, accord-
ing to Supervisor of Elections Terry
Vaughan.
"She obviously did it in an attempt
to balance the districts without any po-
litical fingerprints on it," he said.

Hawkins to

face trial

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Associated Press reported Tues-
day evening that Benjamin Gerard
Hawkins would face trial for involun-
tary manslaughter for his alleged role
in the death of a man in a Las Vegas
casino last July.
Hawkins was a teacher and coach at
Bradford High School at the time. He
has since been performing administra-
tive duties at the district office pend-
ing the outcome of the case.
The AP reported that Las Vegas
Justice of the Peace William Jansen
said a jury would have to decide if
Hawkins was acting in self-defense
when he punched 46-year-old John
Massie following a confrontation with
racial overtones.
Massie died of severe brain injuries
after falling to the ground, according
to testimony from a medical exam-
iner.
Police and casino security testified
about what Hawkins anril witnesses
said about the July 6, 2011, incident.
Hawkins reportedly told police racial
comments were made while the two
men were in the restroom. Massie
waited for Hawkins outside and ap-
proached him on the casino floor.
Hawkins told police he hit Massie be-
cause he believed Massie was going to
strike him.
Hawkins lawyer, Jack Buchannan,
stated that Hawkins was trying to pro-
tect himself and his wife and friends
who were at a nearby blackjack table.
Video surveillance was shown to the
courtroom. The AP reported that the
footage showed the two men speak.
Massie's hands were in his pocket.
Hawkins turned away, but after taking
two or three steps, quickly turned and
struck Massie.
Las Vegas police Detective Jeff
Rosgen reportedly characterized the
act as a "sucker punch."
The surveillance shows Massie fall
hard and remain motionless on the
ground. He was pronounced dead af-
ter being taken to a hospital.
The original murder charge was
reduced to involuntary manslaughter.
Bail was eliminated and an arraign-
ment has been scheduled for ApriL23.
Locally, there has been support for
Hawkins. A Facebook site established
for support and donations for his le-
gal defense has obtained nearly 900
"likes." In a Feb. 23 posting. Hawk-
ins wrote about the hearing that took
place Tuesday.
"Let's hope and pra\ that this goes
well and we're done with this night-
mare soon. I would like to thank el-
eryone for khcir continued support.
prayerls and donations," he wrote.

Evans, Ogburn was invited back
as one of the six finalists to per-
form again and cinched her win

heat, worked the stage and kept
them entertained.
Coming in second was Maci
McDuffie from Baker County,
who has performed at local fairs,
the Jacksonville Jazz Festival
and the Suwanrlee River Jam.
She was accompanied on guitar
by friend Matt Carter. She took
on Heart's "Magic Man" and
"Keep Me in Mind" by the Zac
Brown Band. Judges said her vo-
cals were amazing and she nailed
the Heart song.
Willow Veda, a 14-year-old
student at Lake City Middle.
School, claimed third place af-
ter performing Taylor Swift's
"Mean". and "Cowboy Casa-
nova" by Carrie Underwood.
Judges said her voice and pre-
sentation were a great package
and she could e\en teach Tahlor
S~ilft a thing or \\o .Ibout sing-
ing that song.


Rounding out the top six final-
ists were Connor Blackley, 14
from Jacksonville, who was com-
pared to singerJosh Turner; Britt-
ney Hall, a 17-year-old Bradford
High junior, who though new to
the stage came across to judges
like a pro; and 17-year-old Jes-
sica Thornton, who sang and
played guitar, impressing judges
with her sweet voice. Jessica also
took home the People's Choice

THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 2012 BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH 5A


Bringing awareness to Food Checkout Week, a group of Bradford County Farm Bureau
representatives partnered with the local Winn-Dixie store to purchase food for the
Bradford Food Pantry. Pictured (I-r) are Ginny Linzy, Dewitt Hersey, Agnes Sapp,
Melissa Hardin, Winn-Dixie representative Cathy Lee, Judy Archey and Winn-Dixie
representative Brenda Carroll.


Farm Bureau

supports

Bradford

Food Pantry
Food Checkout Week creates
an opportunity for Farm Bureau
members to help consumers use
their grocery "dollars wisely as
they manage the continuing ef-
fects of the national economic
recession.
Celebrated this year from Feb.
19 through Feb. 25, the event was
held with the theme "Stretch-
ing Your Grocery Dollar With
Healthy, Nutritious Food."
Volunteers from the Bradford
County Farm Bureau delivered
packaged foods to the Bradford


Food Pantry on Feb. 22, making
it available to those in need.
Farmers and ranchers receive
19 cents out of every dollar spent
on food. Off-farm costs-pro-
cessing, packaging, wholesaling
and retailing-account for 81
cents. In 1980, the farm producer
received 31 cents of every dollar
spent on food.
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture, higher re-
tail food prices have primarily
resulted from increasing energy
costs for processing, packaging
and transportation. The agency
also reports that the prices of
unprepared fresh fruits and veg-
etables such as carrots, bananas,
tomatoes, broccoli, red delicious
apples and iceberg lettuce have
remained stable compared to
dessert and snack foods.


U.S. consumers enjoy a do-
mestic food supply that is among
the safest, most abundant arrd af-
fordable in the world. Agricultur-
al producers take pride in provid-
ing consumers with the highest
quality, nutritious food possible.
Food safety is a fundamental-
goal of all farmers and ranchers
who produce food products. :
Food Checkout Week pro-
vides an opportunity for fartners-
and ranchers to share the nation's
food bounty with citizens who
are in need. Since the program
was initiated in the mid-1990s,
Farm Bureau members have do-
nated over $3 million in food and.
monetary contributions to Ron-
aid McDonald Houses and other
worthwhile charities during Food.
Checkout Week.

World Day of Prayer
"Let justice prevail"













The Christian women of Malaysia invite us to join them Friday, March 2, for World
Day of Prayer 2012. They strive to be neighbors within a multi-religious country
and among a Muslim majority, so they open the service with "Selamat datang" -
"Peace and welcome" This greeting is a reminder that harmony as a people is
rooted in peace and welcome. They name fair and just governance as the basis for
harmony in the social order. They remind us, however, that the ideal of peace and
harmony is undermined by corruption and greed, and it is distorted when voices for
truth and justice are silenced.

A hymn of trust serves as a transition to the Gospel reading from Luke. The
women of Malaysia contextualize Luke's parable by telling the story of Irene
Fernandez, who reported the suffering of migrant workers. She was charged,
found guilty of spreading false information and imprisoned for 13 years.

In the Old Testament, the prophet Habakkuk is disturbed by the desperate
conditions around him and complains bitterly to God. One needs to read Habakkuk
closely to realize that in pain and doubt, God offers an inner strength that is
needed forjustice to prevail.

The 2012 service encourages worshipers to respond from their own context to the
theme, "Let justice prevail". There is an activity for participants in which they name
an injustice and identify a first step toward gaining justice. A clear message
emerges from this service: It takes courage, compassion and active engagement
for justice to prevail.

WDP's motto, "Informed prayer leads to powerful action." affirms that prayer and
action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence. We encourage
you to begin thinking about actions that you can take to further support the 2012
theme, which calls us to work with God and with each other to create a world in
which each gender, race, culture, religion and state is honored, nurtured and
empowered.

Please join us for the World Day of Prayer service in our community on:
Friday, March 2, 2012 at 11:00AM at St. Edwards Catholic Church. Nursery
will be provide and there will also be a covered dish luncheon.

w4/orkers room

to work
More than 170 law enforce-
ment officers in the United States
'have died after being struck by
motor vehicles since 1999. Thou-
sands have been injured.
STo make the roadways safer
for everyone, to include law en-
forcement officers and emergen-
cy workers who often work road-
side, the director of the Florida
Highway Patrol, Col. David Bri-
erton, has announced that FHP is
teaming up with two other states
to protectemergency workers on


roadways.
The Florida Highway Patrol,
Alabama Department of Public
Safety and Georgia State Patrol
are uniting this month to focus
enforcement and education ef-
forts on the Move Over Law.
"All too often, a law enforce-
ment officer, paramedic, or
wrecker operator is seriously
injured or killed while they are
doing their job because a vehicle
drove too close," said Brierton.
"That is why our law includes
protection for all first respond-
ers, emergency personnel and
wrecker operators. Each of them
deserved protection under the.
law."
During the month-long en-
forcement operation, law en-
forcement officers will work to-
gether along busy highways and
interstates to catch Move Over
Law violators and others break-
ing traffic laws. Law enforce-
ment officers will be out irnforce,
issuing citations for violations,
so drivers beware!


July will mark 10 years since
'Florida's Move Over Law took
.effect, The law requires motor-
ists,',whenever they observe an
authorized emergency vehicle or
a wrecker parked roadside with
flashing emergency lights, to va-
cate the lane closest to the emer-
gency vehicle or wrecker when
driving on a highway with two or
more lanes traveling in the direc-
tion of the emergency vehicle.
If such movement cannot be
accomplished safely, or when
traveling on a two-lane roadway,
the driver must slow down to a
speed of 20 mph less than the
posted speed limit. Find addi-
tional details and public service
announcements on Florida's
Move Over law at www'.xflhsmnv.

Floridians \\ho travel to other
states should know that nearly
every state has a Move Over
Law. Hawaii and Washington
D.C. are the only areas that do
not have a Mo\ e Over I ax\.

BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor


Linda Miller was frustrated
with the anemic attendance to
Starke Elementary School's
.yearly FCAT night. The event,
'designed to educate parents
about Florida's Comprehensive
'Achievement Test, had drawn
single-digit attendance over
the past few years. So Miller,
the head of the school's parent-
teacher organization, overhauled
'the annual night out and drew
nearly 100 participants Feb. 21.
Across Florida, schools have
for years hosted events targeting
-parents to help them prepare their
'children for the standardized
Latest. But according to Miller, the
Starke Elementary event has gar-
nered pathetic participation.
"Over the past few years," said
Miller, "we've had one, maybe
two parents show up for FCAT
night."
So the first thing the PTO pres,
ident did was ditch the "FCAT"
in FCAT night.
"Don't call it FCA6T anything,"
she said.
Miller instead chose to market
her event by highlighting two
other words. One concept ap-


pealed to parents: free. The sec-
ond word hit pay dirt with stu-
dents: slime.
"First' of all, we had a lot of
free stuff," Miller said. "Free hot
dogs, free .popcorn, free drinks,
free door prizes, free puzzles and
games,free passes to the Cummer
Art Gallery. Free, free, free."
One goal school officials had
in drawing parents to the cam-
pus was to orient them about the
test.
The school took a tw'o-pronged
approach to making parents
aware of what was on the exam.
First, school officials handed out
sample questions for parents to
work on.
Miller said she could tell many
parents were genuinely surprised
by the degree of difficulty on the
sample questions.
"I heard several of them say,
'That's on there?'"
And after parents struggled
with the written questions, school
officials brought out their second
main attraction: the slime.
For each grade level from the
third through fifth grades, stu-
dents and their parents squared
off to play, "Are You Smarter
than a ...," based on the popular
Fox Television primetime game


show, "Are You Smarter Than a
511 Grader."
Teams fielded FCAT-type
questions as. they tried to avoid
the capital punishment popular-
ized by the Nickelodeon televi-
sion channel.
Student teams from the third
and fifth grade triumphed over
their guardians and were re-
warded with pouring the green,
gelatin-like substance onto their
parents.
In the fourth grade, however,
the grownups won out. Par-
ents Tricia Thomas and Rhonda
Stifel showed no mercy as they
emptied-out plastic pitchers onto
the heads of their goggle-clad
children.
But the biggest winners of the
night were the students, who with
informed parents can face the
statewide exam better prepared.
Starke Elementary Principal
Lynn Melvin credited her PTO
president for making the night a
success by jettisoning "FCAT"
and bringing in the slime.
Miller said she too learned a
valuable lesson.
"If you say 'slime'," she said,
"they will come."

/ I was surprised that the cold
spell we had a few weeks back
U damaged the buds on my camellia
bush. Aren't camellias supposed to
be cold hardy?
Camellias do very well in our north Florida cli-
mate:, producing large, showy blossoms that bright-
en our landscapes when nothing else seems to be
flowering. However, frosts can damage buds, re-
suiting in misshapen flowers and blossoms marked
with brown spots. Try covering your plants with
tarps or old bed sheets when freezing temperatures
are expected.

I'm planning to fertilize my lawn in a few
weeks, during early March. What type of fertile.
izer should I use?
You're already on the right track. The Univer-
sity of Florida recommends that the first fertilizer
application of the year occur between March 1 and
15. Shop for a formula with a roughly equal ratio of
nitrogen (the first number) and potassium (the last
number). Potassium promotes drought tolerance in
. grass because it regulates the opening and closing
of stomata, or small openings, in the blades, con-
trolling the amount of water lost through
transpiration. i
Also, UF says the middle number, ,
phosphorous, should be as low as you can
find (unless a soil test dictates otherwise)
because Florida soil is naturally rich in
that element. Phosphorous runoff, which
scientists suspect comes mostly from
residential landscapes, is linked to severe UFI
algae bloom present in many rivers and iF,


Election
office to host
candidate
workshop
The Bradford County Super-
visor of Elections Office will be
hosting a candidate workshop on
Monday, March 26, at 6 p.m. in
the county commission board-
room in the north wing of the


lakes. You can help
eliminate the problem
by selecting a blend
with a zero (0) middle
number.
Additional informa-
tion on the subject of
fertilizing turf grass is
available at http://bit.

What is a soil test?
How do I go about
getting one?
A soil test will tell Mary W. Bridgman
you whether your soil
needs treatment with lime (to make it less acidic)
or fertilizer. Supplies for submitting a sample are
available at the Bradford County Extension Of-
fice, 2266 N: Temple Ave. in Starke. Samples
must be mailed to University of Florida for testing.
Forms and information are available at http://bit.
ly/wP1AgF.

Are there special rules for applying fertilizer
near lakes and ponds?
Except when adjacent to a protective seawall,
leave a "ring of responsibility" around or along the
shore of any bodies of water, including retention
ponds. It should be at least three feet from the wa-
ter's edge. If you apply granular fertilizer without
a deflector shield-a device that allows fertilizer to
be distributed only on one side-the ring should be
at least 10 feet from the edge of the water.

At this workshop, a wide va-
riety of-topics will be covered,
to include law changes, political
advertising, qualifying, redis-
tricting and more.
Anyone already filed or who
plans to run for local office is
encouraged to attend. YOu can
reserve your spot by calling
the elections office at 904-966-

I've experienced streaking green-up
when I fertilize my lawn. How can I
avoid that?
It's easy-just apply the fertilizer at
half the suggested rate in one direction,
and then apply the other half perpendicu-
lar to'that. This will ensure more uniform
coverage.

Plan A as adopted by the majority of county commissioners meeting in a special
session on Monday.

MAP
Continued from 1A


Population ,Breakdown Under
Plan A Redistricting Map
Currently Plan A
District 1 3,058 3,000
District 2 6,318 5,259
District 3 3,808 5,359
District 4 5,061 5,346
District 5 6,146 5,427
(Note: Prison population, of-
ten included in the county's over-
all population, has not been in-
cluded when calculating district
populations.)

District 5, under Commis-
sioner Eddie Lewis, remains the
largest district. The difference
between his district and Com-
missioner Doyle Thomas's Dis-
trict 2, which now has the small-
est population among Districts
2-5, has been reduced to 168 res-
idents, or 3 percent. That's well
within the 10 percent goal of the
redistricting committee.
District 3, represented by Com-
missioner Lila Sellars, is the big-
gest beneficiary in terms of pop-
ulation size. While it loses some
area on south S.R. 100 to District
4 and Commissioner Danny Rid-
dick, it also absorbs the southern-
most part of District 2 and south
Starke from District 5.
Lewis said if the commission
couldn't go with its previous
selection then he could support
Plan A, but he wanted to delay
implementation until 2013.
Like the school board, Sellars


Said she could support any of
the committee-approved plans
but the issue needed' to be settled
without delay.
"I think we need to take action
today and vote on a plan to move
Forwardd" she said.
Riddick said he didn't like the
look of Plan B, which the school
board had selected, because it
looks like someone was being
cut in or out of a district. He pre-
ferred Plans A and C.
Thomas wanted a closer look
at Plan A but after studying the
map area being cut from District
2, his position hadn't changed.
Although he recognized he and
Lewis had been outnumbered,
he said he was going to vote his
feelings. That was against ac-
cepting Plan A.
Vaughan and Milner raised
some potential issues with wait-
ing until 2013 if the county
commission and school board
weren't on the same page, but
if .both boards, agreed on what
changes to make and when, that
would reduce confusion for vot-
ers. Vaughan.said if the. boards
could decide on a plan, it's pos-
sible redistricting wouldn't be an
issue again anytime soon, even
after the next census, depending
on the county's growth.
Lewis said he still couldn't un-
derstand why there was "heart-
burn" over delaying implementa-
tion of a redistricting plan until
2013. Hating to give up any of his
district, he still moved to adopt
Plan A but postpone changes un-
til after the election. The motion
died for lack of a second.

Sellars then made a motion to
pursue Plan A with the changes
going into effect before the elec-
tion. Riddick made the second,
and they, along with Chandler,
cast the prevailing votes. Three
commissioners are running this
year, and all three are going to
have to deal with the changes in
those districts as they campaign,
Chandler said, assuming they
face opposition.
The school board will hold a
special meeting on March I at
noon to act on redistricting.
Settling the redistricting issue
should finally answer some ques-
tions for those who might be con-
sidering a run for office. Vaughan
is holding a special workshop for
candidates on March 26, at 6 p.m.
in the commission boardroom
covering topics like changes in
the law, qualifying to run and
political advertising. It is open to
anyone interested in the process.

The commission moved
$100,000 in grant funding from
the C.R. 229 resurfacing project
to the bridge repair project on
C.R. 200A. According to engi-
neer Jerome Kelley, during pro-
cess of inserting new culverts un-
der the bridge, it was discovered
the walls on either side of the
road were in disrepair or incom-
plete and lacked the proper foun-
dation. That will be corrected as
the project moves forward. The
road is expected to be closed for
two to three weeks:

Tigers make it to Final Four, lose to Hawthorne


The Union County Tiger bas-
ketball team's surprising run in
the playoffs ended Tuesday with
a heartbreaking 56-53 loss to the
Hawthorne Hornets in the state
semi-finals at the Lakeland Cen-
ter.
Trailing the Hornets most of
the game, the Tigers had clawed
their way back to tie the game
near the end of the third quar-
ter behind the play of Shaimea
Maeweather, who finished with
22 points in the game.
Maeweather scored 8 points in
a row on an offensive rebound, a
3-pointer, and a 3-point play on a
driving layup and a foul shot to
knot the game at 37-37 with less
than 3 minutes left in the third
quarter.
The Tigers would take the lead
in the fourth quarter and were up
47-43 with less than four min-
utes to play after Keldric Bradley
had two nice drives to the basket
through traffic to score. Bradley
would finish with 13 points in
the game.
After the Tigers went up by
four points, the Hornets were
able to draw fouls on several
drives to the basket and make the
free throws to pull back into the
lead at 51-50 with 1:48 to play in
the game.
The two teams than traded sev-
eral turnovers in the next minute,
which was typical of the entire
game. Both teams finished with
about 20 turnovers each in the
contest.
With 42 seconds left, the Hor-
nets controlled the ball after the
Tigers' final turnover, and held.


it until the Tigers finally fouled
with 13 seconds left.
Hawthorne made the first free
throw, missed the second but was
able to grab the rebound and get
fouled again with nine seconds
remaining. The Hornets hit both


of the free throws to go up 54-50,
seeming to clinch the win.
But the Tigers' Bradley drove
the length of the court and made
another driving layup while be-
ing fouled with four seconds to
go, cutting the Hornets' lead


back to two.
Bradley missed the free throw,
but Austin Dukes grabbed the re-
bound and was fouled as he tried
to put it back in for the score,
with two seconds remaining on
the clock and a chance for the Ti-


gers to tie the game.
After Hawthorne called a tim-
eout, Dukes made the first free
throw, but missed on'the second
after another Hornet timeout,
leaving the Tigers down 54-53.
The Tigers fouled Hawthorne


immediately on the rebound;
which provided the final two
points for the Hornets and a 56-
53 lead. Princeton Alexander's

Tigers earn trip to Final Four
^- W


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Princeton Alexander and
Daquin Edwards had key baskets
'down the stretch as the Union
County boys' basketball, team
weathered a rally by visiting
Chiefland and won- the Feb. 25
Class IA-Region 4 championship
by a score of 68-62 to advance to
Sthe Final Four for just the second
time in school history.
It would be an understatement
to6 say head coach Rufus Jeffer-
son was walking on air..
:"I'm soaring like a 747 right
6inow above the clouds," he said.
\\ ih the win, the Tigers im-
Sproved to 15-13 and advanced to
the state semifinals and played

Jefferson County, this past Tues-
.da\. "
The Tigers, whose only other
SFinal Four berth occurred in 1994,
advanced in large part because
.:Of Keldric Bradley and Shaimea
NMaeueauther, who scored 20 and
;22 points, respectively, in the
z.win over Chiefland.
'It feels amazing to be the
oiOes to take us back (to the Final
;F7iur),"-Maeweather said.
F :A backcourt steal and score
zby Bradley gave the Tigers a
:13-point lead in the fourth'quar-
?ter, but Chiefland (23-4) tied the
game at 55-all with a 13-0 run.
Kyle'Weeks had the first 11
:points of that run, hitting three
consecutive 3-point baskets and
scoring on a layup following his
:own backcourt steal.
SJefferson said he knew the
Indians were capable of making
such a run. A team doesn't ad-
vance to the regional finals and
not have the ability to score some
points in a hurry, he said.
The key, Jefferson said, was
for his players to maintain their.
:focus.
"I tell my guys, once a team
makes a run, we've got to find
:a way to stop them," Jefferson
;said: "We can't give up. We've,
.got to find a way to keep our
;heads in it. Eventually, the run is
going to stop, and theh our run
:will begin."
SAfter Chiefland's Josh Smith

and ended the game.
SThe Tigers finished the season
with a record of 15-14 and made
their first state semifinal appear-
ance since 1994. Most of the Ti-
ger starters were underclassmen,
so they should have a good nu-
cleus returning for next season.

and a lead Union would never re-
linquish. Bradly, who was 6 of 7
from the foul line, made two free
throws to make the score 61-57.
Maeweather made a solid de-
fensive play when he blocked a
shot by Hermie McClendon, but

minutes remaining as the Indians
stayed within two points of the
Tigers.
Both teams missed opportuni-
ties until Union's Edwards scored
on a layup with 21 seconds to
play to make it a two-possession
game.
"It was one of the biggest shots
of the night," Jefferson said. "I'm
not going to. say it broke their
backs, but that put us right where
we wanted to be."
Deshawn Roland missed a
3-point attempt for Chiefland
before Alexander added two free
throws to cap the scoring.
Eleven seconds later, the cel-
ebration began.
"I feel good," Bradley said.
"I've never had this happen. It's
my freshman year, so it's good for
me."
"If Heaven feels this good,"
Jefferson said, "I can't wait to
get there."
To get that feeling, Jefferson
had to sweat it out through four
quarters of a tense, hard-fought
game that was close throughout.
The largest lead either team had
through the first three quarters
was eight points.
Chiefland took a 31-25 lead
into the half, closing out the sec-
ond quarter by outscoring the Ti-
gers 13-6. A 3-pointer by Weeks
put the Indians up 29-23 with
2:13 to play in the half, but the
Indians missed an opportunity
after Issac Smith's backcourt
steal. Instead, Carl Alexander
scored on a layup for the Tigers
following a Chiefland turnover
to make it a4fpur-point game.
Turnovers hurt Union in the
second quarter, and it was a turn-
over that led to Roland's layup
with three seconds on the clock,
which sent the Indians into the
-half-with a six-point cushion.

was instrumental in the way the
Tigers closed out the third quar-
ter, scoring'nine points during an
11-4 run. One of Bradley's five
baskets during that span came
following his block of. a layup
attempt by McClendon that
would've pulled the Indians to
within three.
As it was, the Tigers went into
the final quarter up 50-42'.
Maeweather and Bradley were
at it again as Maeweather scored
in transition following Bradley's
defensive rebound, while Brad-
-ley scored following his own
backcourt steal.
Bradley's basket was the last
Union score prior to Chiefland's
13-0 run, which made getting the
win anything but easy.

Maeweather said. "We had a
rough road, but God just brought
us through. We just played
through it and got here."
This year may mark just the
Tigers' second trip to the Final
Four, but Jefferson doesn't see
why another trip couldn't be i'

Salaries became a topic in an
article recently in Starkejournal.
com of the top 20 salaries in the
county.
Nine of those on the list are
EMS employees. What sticks
out to me, is one employee who
is not a supervisor department
head, or even a certified para-
medic, but made more than sev-
eral of those positions to the tune
of almost $59,000. That's with a
drive-home vehicle. Funny thing
is...this employee's hourly rate is
only $11.50 an hour.
I'm just a public school guy, so
pardon me...it don't add up! But
that's what you get when you pay
out an average over three years

ery year!
This is not a personnel prob-
lem, strictly a management prob-
lem. The men and women in the
street doing the good work are
not to blame
But there seems to be a fair-
ness issue here and it appears to
be a case of the haves and the
have-nots.
My guess is that this does not
motivate or inspire the other
county employees who haven't
had a raise in over four years.
Can you blame them?

The county doesn't have mon-
ey to build restroom facilities,
for a building they own, like the
fire station in Sampson City, or
provide the volunteer firefighters
inoculations against blood borne
pathogens at $36 dollars a person
at the health department, or pro-
vide them with medical evalua-
tions mandated by the state for
five years now to keep them
safe and keep the county out of
liability problems-but they got
money to buy two specialty ve-
hicles for one department that
are nice to have and not really
needed to the tune of $117,197
taxpayer dollars. They can af-
ford a $20,000 cab and chassis
that will cost at least double that
to build for another because it
was "a deal." Not to mention the
other $36,387 dollars for nice-to-
have items that most other career
and volunteer departments don't
have-and all taxpayer dollars.
Hmm, priorities...
The county isn't sure where
the money will come from to
replace a bad piling on a bridge
located on Southwest 106'h Street
in Graham, so there it sits, rot-
ting away. Guess the folks go-
ing to the Bradford Sportsmen
Farm and the residents who
live beyond it will have to cross
their fingers for a while. We are
only talking about an estimated
$10,000 to fix it, but the road de-
partment is about to purchase a
new road grader- makes perfect
sense to me. Let's hope that ma-
chine doesn't collapse that bridge
when it crosses it.
So do we think the county can
help the employees who work to
keep things going around here
now? Sure they can. They have
to want to first! Take care of your
employees, motivate and inspire

I wouldn't blame some if they
wouldn't simply bend over.
Take a lesson from St. Johns

ber approved giving every full-
time employee a $500 one-time
adjustment and part-timers $250.

Note from StarkeJourna.l.com
editor Dan Hildebran: In his let-
ter Mr. McDavid referred to a
StarkeJurnal.com story: Brad-
ford County's top 20 salaries.
In that Jan. 11 story, I listed the
top 20 Bradford County salaries
according to the website Flor-
idaOpenGov.org. While I ac-
curately reflected the content of
FloridaOpenGovenment.org., I
failed to point -out that the web-
site omitted several highly-paid
county employees including
Property Appraiser Jimmy Alva-
rez, Clerk Ray Norman, Tax Col-
lector Teila Pearson and others.
If all county employees had been
included on the list, several in-
cluded in the StarkeJournal.com
story would havefallen out of the
top 20.

About Union
County...
Dear Editor:
We have been in business ior
more than 28 years, and in those


years, we have made a lot of
friends in Union County/Lake
Butler: from the business com-
munity to the sheriff and his de-
partment to the courthouse and
county government. Everyone
has a professional and positive
attitude, which makes it a great
place for us-as a business- to
serve.
The school system's superin-
tendent, staff, principals, teach-
ers and all who make the schools
run are doing an outstanding job
teaching the children of Union
County. The schools are clean.
and free from trash and graffiti. I
know the school board members.
are proud of their accomplish-
ments.
While working in the schools,
it is really refreshing that the stu-
dents are well-behaved and they
will say "hello" or "good morn-
ing" and they have respect by
saying (are you ready?) "yes sir":
and "no, sir" and "yes ma'am"
and "no ma'am." How cool is
that?
Our state and every state should
take lessons from Union County
and its good people. If you drive-
by Spires grocery on S.R. 100 in

that reads, "Hometown Pride."
This is true in every way.

i 'lIME


Jury convicts man
on lesser charges
The state attorney's office
asked a Bradford County jury to
convict a man for four felonies
but the six-member panel chose
instead to declare him guilty of
one misdemeanor, battery.
Prosecutors charged John La-
mar Crews, now 42, with kid-
napping, aggravated assault with
a deadly weapon, felony battery-
repeat offender and tampering
with a witness, victim or infor-
mant.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, Deputy Thomas B
Harrison on Aug. 7, 2011, found
Crews hiding in the woods be-
hind a residence near the inter-
section of S.R. 100, West and
C.R. 225 (Bayless Highway).
Crews' stepfather told Harrison
that the suspect had been drink-
ing and threatened to stab him
with a pair of pruning sheers.
Crews' mother told the deputy
that her son threatened to burn
down her house with her in it. She
said he then cut the phone line to
her house so she couldn't call
police.
The suspect denied the allega-
tions and told Harrison his moth-
er was mad at him because he
had been drinking. The deputy
arrested Crews for obstructing
police and for aggravated bat-
tery.
In a Feb. .21 trial, Assistant
State Attorney Bruce Helling
laid out to jurors his version of
the Aug. 7 events, matching up
each charge to the defendant's
behavior in August. The pros-
ecutor said Crews kidnapped his
stepfather by holding the man
against his will, restricting his
movement by threatening him
with a pair of tinsnips.
SThe felony battery and aggra-
vated assault charges also arose
from Crews' use of the tinsnips.
Both Crews' mother and
stepfather testified they saw the
defendant cut the family's tele-
phone line, prohibiting them
from calling law enforcement.
The prosecutor said that action
constituted tampering with a wit-
ness, victim or informant.
.'Assistant Public Defender
Sheree Graham told jurors that
the interaction between Crews
and his mother and stepfather in
the early hours of Aug. 7 was a
continuation of an Aug. 6 dispute
the younger man had with his
mother over the presence of beer
6n her property.
- She told jurors, and reinforced
through cross-examination of the
mother and stepfather, that Crews
lived with 'his parents, and that
his mother had a long-standing
r.le against alcoholic beverages
i' her house.
'This was a major issue in the
house," she said of the mother's
alcohol prohibition.
:.Graham argued that on Aug.
6 an acquaintance of Crews
brought a beer onto the property
and the mother objected. Moth-
e&and son then engaged in a ver-
bal dispute, with the son leaving
the property, returning after mid-
night.
:"The evidence will show la-
dies and gentlemen that this was
a healed discussion," she said.
"It wasn't just a.simple disagree-
ment."
IThe defense lawyer added
!i;


that when Crews returned to the
home on the 7, he had no inten-
tion of hurting anyone.
"When Mr. Crews entered the
home after midniglit in Aug. 7,
he wanted to talk and settle some
things about this issue," Graham
continued.
Both the mother and stepfather
testified during the one-day trial.
A judge sentenced Crews to the
maximum penalty for the misde-
meanor battery charge, one year
in jail. Had he been convicted of
the felony charges, Crews could
have been sentenced to 30 years
in prison.

Man not guilty
of DUI
A Bradford County jury ac-
quitted a 48-year-old Starke
man of DUI Feb. 22. Dar-
ren Keith Keene told jurors
a Bradford County deputy
stopped him while he was driv-
ing from the Whisky River Sa-
loon to a friend's house in the
early morning hours of Oct. 8,
2011. Keene added that he was
shocked when -Deputy Trent
Page handcuffed him for DUI.
"I absolutely was not im-
paired," the 48-year-old told
the six-member panel and one
alternate.
Page arrested Keene on S.R.
100, west, near Crosby Lake
Cemetery. The lawman told ju-
rors he made the arrest after he
saw Keene driving .erratically
and after putting the 48-year-
old through field sobriety tests.
Assistant State Attorney
Marcus Cathey emphasized
to jurors Page's testimony,
particularly the parts of the
deputy's testimony that could
not be corroborated by video
the jury viewed. Page told ju-
rors he smelled alcohol on the
man's breath and observed the
48-year-old with bloodshot
eyes, two observations not
picked up ohdthe video.
.The prosecutor also pointed
out to the panel that Keene ad-
mitted to changing his story,
first telling Page he consumed
no alcohol prior to being pulled
oyer, later ,admtjttig to the'
deputy, h.qdrank one beer, then
confessing to the jury, he had
consumed two beers that night.
Cathey also told jurors that
the defendant's refusal to pro-
vide a breath sample revealed a
"consciousness of guilt."
"There is no reason not to
take that test," Cathey told ju-
rors, "if he knows he has not


had too much to drink. But he
knew he was guilty, and that's
consciousness of guilt."
Keene's lawyer Cascy Bry-
ant told jurors to base their ver-
dict on what they saw with their
own eyes.
"You don't have to believe a
word Deputy Page tells you,"
he said. "You've got the video
tape and you can see what hap-
pened yourself."

Report: burglar
broke into home,
drank beer,
phoned victim
A Lake Butler man broke into
a Bradford County residence,
helped himself to the hom-
eowner's beer, then telephoned
the victim to boast about the
burglary, according to a sher-
iff's office report.
Thomas Henry Kent, 26, was
charged with burglary.
The allegations against Kent
are not proven and he is inno-
cent until adjudicated guilty by
a court.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, the homeowner was
away from the residence during
the Feb. 20 break-in. He told
deputies Kent called him after
the suspect gained access into
his refrigerator and bragged
about how easy it was to get
into the home.
A deputy later found evi-
dence an intruder entered the
home through a bathroom win-
dow, but did not find a suspect
in or around the structure.
The victim gave the deputy
a description of Kent's car and
another deputy soon stopped
the described vehicle not far
from the victim's home, in the
area of Dyal Cemetery.
According to the second law-
man, Kent admitted to breaking
into the home. The deputy also
reported that Kent claimed all
he did while inside the structure
was drink beer.

Report: Woman
ignored deputy's
advice, arrested
for burglary
A Bradford deputy wrote in
a report that he warned a Law-
tey woman not to enter an un-
occupied apartment and later
arrested the'woman after she
disregarded his advice.

Deputy Brian Melvin wrote
that'he charged Holly Selina
Prevatt, 26, with burglary.
The allegations in the report
are not proven and Prevatt is in-
nocent until adjudicated guilty
by a court.
The deputy wrote that on Feb.
24, around 9:42 p.m., he was
dispatched to Lawtey and met
with Prevatt. Melvin claimed
the 26-year-old told him she
wanted to retrieve another per-
son's EBT card and emergency
cash from within the unoccu-
pied apartment, and wanted to
know what would happen if she
entered the structure through a
window.
"I advised Holly that if she
entered the residence when the
owner was not home," wrote
the lawman, "Holly would be
charged with burglary."
Melvin added that he then
instructed Prevatt to leave the
premises and that she complied
with his order.

However, just after 10:30
the deputy was called back to
the same apartment. There,'he
met the resident who claimed
that when she entered the rental
through the front door, she saw
Prevatt leaving through the
back door. The victim added
that nothing appeared to be
missing from the apartment.

tive way to keep history alive

orable part of the Wings of
Dreams Airfest may be meet-
ing and speaking to the men and
women of "the Greatest Genera-
tion" who flew missions in these
aircraft, hearing their stories:of

rate their service.

Raiford man travels throughout country with Tribute Quartet


BY MARCIA MILLER
Special to the Telegraph-Times-
Monitor
It isn't often you find music
that has the ability to bring tears
to the eyes of both a two-time
convicted murderer and a 20-year
veteran law enforcement officer,
but the Tribute Quartet provided
just that type of music-on Feb.
2Q during a performance at the
chapel at Union Correctional
Institution.
The Southern gospel quartet
is based in Nashville, Tenn., and
took time out of a national tour
to allow one member to visit his
fainily in Raiford last week. Josh
Singletary, the group's baritone
and keyboard player, is the son
of-Roy and Gena Singletary. He
graduated from Union County
High School in 2000. .
While in Raiford, the group
performed at both Singletary's
home church, Fellowship Baptist,
and at UCI where his mother
works as an administrative
assistant to the assistant warden.
the remainder of the group
corisists of veteran lead singer
and manager Gary Casto, tenor
Riley Clark and bass Anthony
Davis. Singletary said the group
performs Southern gospel music
in the tradition of the Bill Gaither
H~tecoming Videos. Clark's
clieb tenor is uplifting while
Davis' bass makes the ribcages
in the audience vibrate.
asto relates the song's
stopr and focuses the music
whjte Singletary provides that
fiY ingredient that melds it
altogether into a powerful
pe formance that drew many an
ex 2imed "Yes, Lord!" from the
audience at UCI.
jigletary 'grew up in Raiford.
His small-town background and
Cltian upbringing coupled
\ ith a love of music at an early
age:-'
^astarted playing the piano at
th.ige of five," said Singletary.
"I:sang in school and grew up
singing in church."
jigletary took piano and
mtisrc lessons for most of his
you-hg life. He said Worthington
Sitigs piano teachers Vera
Ctt and Dene Ward were big
in' lences on his early love pf
mt~i~. Debbie Bailey, a former
music teacher in the Union
CouI.M school system, also had
a hand in steering the young
Sio1etary toward a musical
career.

lessons. Music has just always
been a big part of my life," said
Singletary. ,
Singletary's love of music
meshed perfectly with his
dedication to the Lord and led him
to seek a career in gospel singing.
While traveling with another
gospel group, the Wilburns, he
met and performed with Casto
for the first time in 2001.
The two traveled with the
family group and performed in
churches, auditoriums and many
other venues for several years.
When the family decided to
retire, Casto and Singletary were
still going strong.
They decided to form .a
new group and began holding
auditions. They found Clark and
Davis, and the quartet has been
together now for six years.,They
tour all over the country and even
outside of the United States. They
had 215 appearances last year
ranging from Florida, to Maine,
to Washington state, to Canada,
to Mexico. They are currently
making plans to tour Ireland and
Norway.
The members of the group
have earned acclaim from.
those who follow gospel music.
"Singing News" magazine, one
of the largest Christian music
magazines, presented them with
its Fan Award last year. In 2008,
The Tribute Quartet was voted
Horizon Group of the Year and
SouthernGospelNews.com
chose them as Breakout Artist of
the Year.
Clark has been nominated for
Tenor of the Year and Top-10
Horizon Individual. The group
has appeared on TBN, GMT,
Daystar and other television
venues.
"We've been very blessed
to be able to do what we've
done in such a short time," said
Singletary.

Wanting to share their love
of God with others is the big
driving factor in all their lives, he
said. "We al sang in church and
consider thatbur mainstay," said
Singletary. "We go to all kinds
of churches big churches, little
churches."
Singletary said that whether
the group is performing in a
concert hall with 20,Q00,0seats:
or in a nursing home day room
for 20 patients, the excitement
of .sharing their own personal
love of the Lord makes each
performance a memorable one.
Traveling from town to town
and church to church all year for
years at a time is not a life that

most of us would choose, but
it suits Singletary and the other
members of the group perfectly.
"It is definitely an unusual life.
It can be difficult, but it's very
rewarding," said Singletary. "To
see the lives changed, touched
and filled with the hope of Jesus
makes it all worthwhile.

"Therein lies the reason why
I got into it," he said. "I always
had a desire to minister through
music. I can't think of a greater
platform to do just that than what
I do. I'm very thankful for this
life."
The group finished up a Florida
tour in February and is headed

and California in March.

The Tribute Quartet, based in Nashville, Tenn., spends most of every year traveling all
over the nation. Highly acclaimed in gospel music circles, the group includes Josh
Singletary (at right), who grew up in Union County. The other members are (I-r) tenor
Riley Clark, lead singer and manager Gary Casto, and bass Anthony Davis. Singletary
sings baritone and plays the keyboard. (Photo by Melissa Touchstone.)


FAR RIGHT: The group's
bass singer is Anthony
Davis. Although he takes
a lot of ribbing about
his lightweight build,
the young singer can
rattle ribcages with his
deep bass voice. RIGHT:
Riley Clark's voice helps
transport listeners a little
closer to the clouds as he
