Middle school

mourns passing

of longtime
receptionist
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

Bradford Middle School students
and staff this week remembered their
longtime .receptionist, Sally Groves',
who died" Aug. 24 after an extended
illness.
She is survived by her husband of
34 years; Wayne Groves, children; Jay ,
L. Groves of Starke, Michael Groves
of Texas, Sarah C. Smith:and her hus-
band Jason of Tampa, brothers; Henry
Lawson, Sonny Lawson, and David
Lawson all of Starke. She'also leaves
behind five grandchildren.
Groves worked for 30 years at the
school, spending most of that time as
traffic cop for the front office,juggling
phone calls, intercom pages, campus
visitors and tardy students.
She was known as a calming and
steady presence in the chaotic vor--
tex of students and teachers, parents
and administrators, phone calls and'
nametags, and attendance logs and
forgotten lunches.
But beyond that, her co-workers
say Groves was an expert at lifting the,
spirits of a student or staff member in
a compressed time frame with a smile,
a word or a touch.
"She was a beacon of light every
morning," said staff member Kitten
Denmark. "She was the face of Brad-"
ford Middle School. She always had
a positive comrilent and time for ev-
erybody."
"No matter what the situation,"'
added teacher Sharon Thomas, she
always helped the students and staff
with a positive attitude."

"The bikes were lined up from 301
past Water Street," she said of the
turnout.
She added that most of the event's
participants came from within 200
miles of Starke, many making a day
trip from their homes.
She also said greater Internet expo-
sure though Facebook, Youtube and
News4Jax.com drew bikers in.
Whittle added that organizers con-


tinued to fine tune the layout of the
festival this year, keeping all vendors
on Call Street and 'asking attendees
to park their bikes along downtown's
mairl thoroughfare.
She also said that after six years,
community volunteers appeared to
be more energetic. for the three-day
event.
"More. people .are buying' in and
taking ownership of the project," she
said.

County's

budget

hearings set
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The planning of the Bradford Coun-:
ty's budget for the next fiscal year has
been a behind-the-scenes affair again
this year, although copies of 96-page
document are available in the clerk's
office at the courthouse.
Unlike the city of Starke- which
has hashed out is 2013 spending plan
over several public discussions-the
county commission hasn't had a pub-
lic budget workshop for several years
now. It cannot avoid public hearings
on the budget, however. The first will
be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday,
Sept. 6. The final hearing will be ori
Monday, Sept. 17 at 5:30 p.m.
The county's property tax mill-
age-9.1769 mills-hasn't changed,
but the amount of taxable value in the
county has. Taxable value is down,
and since the board isn't raising its tax
rate to recapture lost revenue, property
tax revenue is down as welh The value
of a mill has gone frdm $826,623 to'
$807,459, which means the county's
revenue from property taxes is down
almost $200,000 to $7.4 million.
That is just a fraction of the revenue
coming in, however. The budget's
bottom line is up to $38 million from
$33,.6 million, including $1.26 mil-
lion more in the general fund, which
is tentatively set .at $12.76 million.
The county commission's own bud-
get is $7.89 :million, which includes
$340,000 reserved for potential state -
retirement costs. This may have to be

Mom arrested

for leaving

child in car

BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

Starke police arrested a mother af-
ter she left her 6-year-old son in a car
while she picked up groceries. at Winn
Dixie.
Jessica L. Marr, 26, was charged
with child neglect without great harm,
a third-degree felony.
The allegations against Marr are un-
proven and she is presumed innocent
until adjudicated guilty by a court.
According to a police report, patrol-
man Scott Johns responded to a 911
call at 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 23. He wrote
that after entering the grocer's parking
lot, four women standing near a blue
Kia flagged him down.
He added that when looking over
the Kia, she saw a small dog in the
back seat and noted that one of the
car's rear windows were down.
"I discovered a small child.. .hiding
on the rear floorboard noticeably up-
set and scared," he wrote.
The four witnesses told Johns the
boy had been in the car alone for at
least 10 minutes.
The officer wrote that he found
Marr in the store as she was about to
check out.
"She immediately advised she had
only left her child in the car for 10 to
.15 minutes while she picked up a few
items," wrote Johns.
The officer added that after he told
the 26-year-old he was arresting her
for child neglect, "Marr did not feel
it was wrong to leave her child unat-
tended in the vehicle as there was a
dog there to protect him."
Johns reported that the child's father
arrived at the grocer to take possession
of the 6-year-old. The officer wrote
that; although the father recognized
the seriousness and dangers involved
in leaving the child alone in the car, he
did not want the mother arrested..

City clueless about promises to use stage


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The organizations that funded
the construction of a stage at the
public square in downtown Starke
said they were made promises
that it doesn't look like the city
commission intends to keep.
: In a recent meeting, city com-
missioners denied making any
promises about the use of the new
stage that private groups worked
to build on city property.
Main Street Starke Inc. ral-
lied donations from several part-
ners to fund the construction of
th stage, which was based on a
similar bandshell built in Penney
Farms.
North Florida Regional Cham-
ber of Commerce President Pam
Whittle has previously requested
an agreement be drawn up mnore
than once containing the arrange-
'ments that were verbally agreed
tpon when the chamber, Main
Street, the Bradford County Dke-
velopment Authority. Bradford
County Tourist Development
and. Sfarke Rotary committed
funds to the project.
: She wanted the agreement in
place before the city "took pos-
session of the facility," but the
stage has already been used for
entertainment at two events now,
a Friday Fest and last weekend's
Bike Fest.
"The organizations that do-
nated the funds to build the stage
were told that there would be no
rental fees associated with us-
ing the stage for those particu-
lar organizations," Whittle said.
That concession was meant to be
permanent. In addition, she said

stage in perpetuity, he said. "It may be that we waive the
Commissioner Tommy 'fee' for the bandshell, but like
Chastain pretended to choke at anyone else they would have
the request, and Commissioner to pay for the utilities." Brown
Carolyn Spooner said this was' said.


Representatives from the city, chamber and Main Street were all smiles when the
ribbon was cut at the stage in the Starke Square. Pictured (1-r) are Dean Weaver, City
Clerk Linda Johns, Rhonda Hamilton, Cyndi Wilisch, Ricky Thompson, Mayor Danny
Nugent, Operations Manager.Marc Oody, commissioners Carolyn Spooner, Travis
Woods, Pam Whittle, Tim Faulkner and Deanna Adams.


Mayor Danny Nugent said the
commission could waive fees
for organizations by request and
didn't see the need for a contract.
The city's policy has been to do
it by request, and that's the way
it should be going forward, he
said.
Chastain, however, said the
city has never had a facility like
this in the past, and there will
probably be a number of book-
ing requests. Waiving fees for
some and not others would lead


to trouble.
"Hypothetically, if it's $1,000
to use it for the weekend, but
we let Main Street-because we
like them--use it for free, but
sorry. church, you've got to pay
$1,000-that's not going to go
over very well,.I don't think," he
said.
Chastain again"recommended
an agreement allowing free use
for three to five years, offset-.
ting the Main Street's usual stage
rental costs.


Brown agreed the city now'
has something to be proud of and
said there need to be policies and
procedures on its use-even if is
offered for free to some.
Chastain suggested there be
a workshop to develop those
policies and procedures, and that
would allow interested parties to-
express their feelings to the com-
mission. That'workshop date has
not been set.

County regulates social media use by employees


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Several county agencies, in-
cluding the sheriff's office.
etliergency management and the
library have been "blowing utip"
oil Facebook and Twitter.
In response to issues expe-
rienced elsewhere, the county
commission recently approved
a,social media policy for its em-
ployees. The guidelines apply
to employees, volunteers, con-
tractors and other agents of the
county.
I Attorney Will Sexton ex-
plained the scope of the policy
t6 the county commission. The
policy prohibits employees and
volunteers from using social me-
dia sites in the course for their
empployment unless it is specifi-
cally authorized by the county.
When posting on social sites on
their personal time, they must
still use discretion.
The policy is aimed more at
reducing the county's risk expo-
sure than it is at stimulating the
use of social media.
. According to the' document: -
i/


"Bradford County understands
employees and/or volunteers
may maintain or contribute to
social media and/or engage in
posts outside of their positions
with Bradford County and may
periodically engage in posts con-
taining information about their
positions or activities on social
media. Employees and/or vol-
unteers engaging in such activi-
ties are required to exercise dis-
cretion and good judgment, and
comply with this policy."
The policy states the county
has the right to monitor and re-
view social media posts made
by employees and civilians.
Employees and Volunteers have
no expectation of privacy while
using county-owned or leased
equipment, even if it is being
used to access a personal e-mail
or social media accounts.
Per the policy. "Employee/
volunteer use of county-leased
or county-owned equipment
constitutes consent for Bradford
County to monitor and intercept
communications while in transit,
after receipt -or while stored on
county-leased or county-owned


equipment under Title I and 11 of
the Electronic Comnmunications
Privacy Act of 1986."
The policy also addresses the
disclosure of confidential in-
formation. including confiden-
tial information provided to the
counties by third parties. This
pertains to personnel information
and health information protected
by the Health Insurance Porta-
bility and Accountability Act of'
1996, among other things.
Bradford County's name may
not be used in site identities and
employees must not speak as rep-
resentatives of the county unless
there are specifically authorized
to do so.
The policy states: "Mutual re-
spect and teamwork are essential
to effective and efficient admin-
istration and operation of Brad-
ford County. Employees and/or
volunteers must be courteous,
respectful and thoughtful about
how Bradford County, other
employees ,and/or volunteers.
and the public may be affected
by social media posts. Incom-
plete, inaccurate, inappropriate,
threatening. harassing or poorly


worded posts may undermine the
public trust in Bradford County
and may be harmful to Bradford
County's efforts to efficiently
and positively serve the public.
Employees and/or volunteers
bear full responsibility for infor-
mation contained in their posts
and their social rnedia."
The policy goes further than
regulating the- use of social me-
dia. Employees and volunteers
are also prohibited from taking
photographs, videos or other re-
cordings while on duty unless
it is part of their job or they are
directed to do so by their super-
visor. Photographs or recordings
made on the job are owned by the
county, according to the policy,
and county employees will make
no such recordings at the scene
of an emergency incident.
The policy applies to depart-
ments that fall under the com-
mission, ,including emergency
management, emergency medi-
cal services and the volunteer fire
departments. It does not apply to
the sheriff's office, which would
have its own policy.


Emergency management lags in governor's ratings


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Starke Journal.conm Editor


Bradford County's emergency
management office was one of
only two counties not to receive
a grade of "exemplary" earlier
this summer, when Gov. Rick
Scott's office evaluated each of
the state's 67 county emergency
management offices.
Bradford County, along with
Walton. County, did receive the

Staff members said Groves
also handled adversity with good
cbeer and humor, converting a-
stressful situation into a lighWt-
hearted moment.
Hemmed in by two entrances
on her right and left, the school's
clinic in front of her and a suite
of administrators' offices to her
rear, co-workers said she often
encountered sick students, pres-
sured staff members and angry
parents. However, they added
she developed a deft. hand at
calming down or lifting up the
volatile emotions of those around
her.
"She had an uplifting spirit for
the rest of us," recalled teacher
Linda Sheffield. "She would
call us ''sweetie' or 'hon,' which
helped us make it through a bad
day."
. Her friends added that in ian

hearts.
"I've heard many people de-

She was an angel in our midst,

Groves was a product of Brad-
ford County public schools,
graduating in 1970. Hired by
Principal Dewey McKinney in
1982, she started off as a-para-
professional then moved onto
the high-profile slot at the front
desk.

Police: Walmart shopper

created his own price tags


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

Starke police accused a
Fleming Island man of manu-
facturine his own discounts at
Starke's Walmart by replacing
the store's UPC codes with his
own homemade bar codes.
Joseph Frank Edinger, 30,
was charged with retail theft,
fraud and resisting a retail mer-
chant.
The charges filed against the
defendant are not proven and he
is presumed innocent until ad-
judicated guilty by a court.
According to a police report,
as soon after Edinger walked
into Walmart around 9 a.m. on
Aug, 13, a manager recognized
Edinger as a former Walmart
associate in Clay County who
had stolen from the retailer be-
fore, The manager followed
the 30-year-old and observed
him select an computer off a
shelf and place a sticker with a
bar code printed on it over the
UPC label that was already on
the box.
The manager told police he
then followed the suspect to
the automotive department
where Edinger put a car cover
in his basket, then proceeded to
check out. After Edinger made
his way through checkout, the
manager asked him to accom-
pany him to the loss prevention
office. The suspect refused and


tried to flee. The manager said
he restrained the shopper and
sustained scrapes on his arms
resulting from the struggle.
Another store manager joined
in the skirmish and the suspect
was eventually subdued.
According to police, the
UPC label Edinger placed' on
the computer's box was-'fbr
iPod speakers priced at $99.88.
The computer was priced at
$698.00.
After police Sgt. Paul King
booked Edginer into the Brad-
fordjail,he located the suspect's
truck, still parked at Walmart. In
the vehicle he found another HP
computer and a closet organizer
that had fraudulent UPC codes
on them. Store managers told
King the additional merchan-
dise came from a Jacksonville'
Walmart. King also found ad-
ditional electronics equipment
in the suspect's Ford Ranger in'
addition to labels and a printer
that appeared to print the false
bar codes.
Later that afternoon. po-.
lice met with an FDLE special
agent to discuss Edinger's pos-
sible involvement with similar
crimes in other jurisdictions.
The following day, a Jackson-
ville sheriffs investigator told
King he was filing charges
against Edinger for the mer-
chandise purchased from the
Jacksonville store.

I have a fig tree that produces
/ large fruit, some of it fhe size of
a baseball. The problem is that the"
figs seem to develop a rotten spot at the end,
even if I harvest the fruit before it is fully ripe.
What can I do?
The answer to your question involves a short
history lesson about introduction of the fig tree to
the Americas in 1575. On the west coast, in the
area that eventually became the state of California,
Spanish Franciscan missionaries introduced the
cultivar Mission, which is still grown there today.
You've probably noticed packages of dried Mis-
sion figs in your grocery store. The Mission fig is
not cold-hardy enough for northern Florida.
Other varieties were introduced froti Mediterra-
nean countries, including Turkey. The fruit of these
early fig cultivars had open "eyes" or ostioles-
openings at the end of the fruit-and hbey were of-
ten.attacked by insects and diseases. I'm guessing
that your fig is a variety that has an open
"eye," which leaves the fruit vulnerable G.' c
to rotting caused by insects or rainwater '
inside the fruit.
In years when we have heavy rain, it's
hard to overcome this particular problem.
Your fig may alsohave, a.lshor,t peduncle,
or fruit stem, which .inhibits the fiuit's

Other characteristics beside closed eye and.Ce-

ments.
(2) In certain circumstances, the law requires the assessed value of homestead and specified nonhomestead property to
increase when the just value of the property decreases. Therefore, this amendment provides that the Legislature may, by general

amendment takes effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential
preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, shall take effect
January 1,2013.

of the year the homestead is established. The additional homestead exemption may not exceed an amount equal to the median.
just value of all homestead property within the county where the property at issue is located for the calendar year immediately

equal to the difference between the just value of the property and the assessed value of the property determined under Article VII,
Section 4(d), whichever is greater. Not more than one such exemption shall be allowed per homestead property at one time. The
additional exemption applies to property purchased on or after January 1, 2011, if approved by the voters at a special election

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12
(Legislative)

Ballot Title: STATE COURTS.-

Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary.
The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The
constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership
of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates.the requirement that a general law repealing a
court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general
law approved by a majority vote of each house of the.Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could
readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule
has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed
rule without the Legislature's prior approval. Under current law. rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial
Qualifications Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the
Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority
vote of the legislators present.
Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judi-
cial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to confirmation. This revision requires Senate
confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take office. If the Senate votes not to confirm the ap-
pointment. the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to
fill the same vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the purpose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any time. If the
Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days. the justice 'will be deemed confirmed and will take office.
The Judicial Qualifications Commission is an independent commission created by the State Constitution to investi-
gate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution,
commission proceedings are confidential until formal charges are filed by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal
charges are filed, the formal charges and all further proceedings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution autho-
rizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further. the Speaker of the House of Representatives may re-
quest, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the commission's possession for use in
deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its files available
to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but provides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation
by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This
revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications Commission to conform to a prior
constitutional change.
This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a
circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission. and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes
in the judicial article of the constitution.

Continued from 1A

.ment contribution requirements,
depending &n the outcome of le-
gal challenges.
-There is also $100,000 more
for data processing for new
equipment purchases, and almost
$105,000 more for county main-
tenance, most of that being in re-
serve for contingency.
'There are small increases in
county manager, property ap-
praiser. fire department, veterans
services, agricultural services
and animal control budgets. The
county's $462,000 contribution
toward funding the library is
unchanged. Also unchanged are
the clerk of court, auditing and
county attorney budgets. Build-
ing and zoning is up some, with
:. additional costs primarily associ-
ated with the hiring a building of-
ficial versus contracting for those
''. services.
Although the county's contri-
bution is up slightly, the overall
emergency management budget,
'which is primarily grant support-
ed, is down almost $30,000. The
- elections supervisor's budget is
also down..
:;. ,Health and human services is
down by almost half to $355,750.
The savings are in the area of
hospital and nursing home cov-
Setage for the indigent. The state
slashed disputed Medicaid bills,
saving counties statewide more
than $171.4 million and signifi-
cantly reducing Bradford Coun-
ty's obligation.
,,There is a new department
for recreation, which contains
$30,000. The funds will pay for
maintenance, utilities, insur-
ance, repair and maintenance,
and equipment for the county's
.senior center and the grant-fund-
ed parks in Pleasant Grove and
Speedville:
The general fund will receive
a. nearly $400,000 transfer of
I. cent sales tax revenue, plus
$550,000 in fiscally constrained
county money from the state to
help balance the budget. These
are separate revenue funds. The
fund for 1 cent sales tax revenue
is projected to be up by almost
$100,000 to $1.24 million. The
county. has almost $2.2 million
available in the fiscally con-
strained county fund. "
The general fund has a $3.28
million balance it will bring
.forward as well, which is up
$622,000 over 2012, and it will
transfer out revenue to areas in-
iFding fines and forfeiture and
emergency medical services.
The fines and forfeiture fund is
up almost $460,000 to $6.29 mil-
'lin. Meanwhile the court budget
.was up just slightly to almost
$497,000.
Fines and forfeiture covers the
sheriff's office, jail and other
.court operating costs. In addi-
tion to its nearly $1.66 million.
share of the property tax revenue
and $841,000 of I cent sales tax
revenue, fines and forfeiture will
'receive a $2.88 million transfer
'from the general fund, which is
up from $2.56 million.

services and operating expenses
has not increased from $1.9 mil-
libn since 2011. The sheriff's of-
fice budget is up nearly $113,000.

ance is up $106,000, and there is
$125.500 in reserve for potential
state retirement costs.*Costs as-
sociated with forfeitures are up to

BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, AUG. 30, 2012


That helps raise this third portion
of the fines and forfeiture bud-
get from $1.27 million to almost
$1.63 million.
Emergency medical services
has a larger budget in 2013, up
almost $100.000 to $2.58 mil-
lion. A large projected decline
in ambulance service fees is off-
set by more than $1.17 million
from the general fund, almost
twice as much as 2012. There
is a $30,000 decline in salary
costs, but retirement contribu-
tions are up $51,000. and life and
health insurance are up $43,000.
New budget item requests are up
$30.000 to $90,000..
Looking at the county's other
funds, tourist development, fund-
ed by the bed tax, is up $32,000
to more than $206,000. The dol-.
lars help pay for the convention
center, and more is budgeted for
building maintenance and opera-
tions.
State S.H.I.P. funding is down
almost $70,000 to $479,477.
Community Development Block
Grant housing dollars available
in an emergency set aside fund
are down by $25,000, but that
still leaves nearly $748,000t The
'county will have $701.500 in
regular CDBG housing money
available, down from $750,000.
The library fund-which in-
cludes the county and state fund-
ing contributions-has grown
more than $246,000 to $1.63 mil-
lion, with unspent state aid accu-
mulating in the fund. The county
spends all of its allocation for the
library and a portion of the state
funds. The remainder is set aside
should future local or state fund-
ing become unavailable.
An infusion of additional state
revenue brought the road depart-
ment fund to almost $6.64 mil-
lion. State funds will be used to
rdsurface C.R. 225A, C.R. 229
and Southeast 144'h Avenue.
These projects alone total more
than $3.7 million. Gas and die-
sel costs went up more than
$150,000 for a combined total of
$783,000.
Mosquito control will. go from
$134,345 to\ $95,209, with less
money being carried forward
for supply and equipment pur-
chases.
The solid waste budget is up
from $1.37 million to almost
$1.42 million. With tipping fee
revenue down slightly, triore cash
is being carried forward into next
year. There is around $16,0000
additional for salaries, plus in-
creases for insurance and retire-
ment, but few other changes.
The criminal justice fund is
virtually unchanged at $225,787.
This is money that can be used
for the courthouse facility.
Money in the impact fee fund
previously listed at $10,562 has
been removed as the county is
not currently collecting addition-
al fees and the remaining funds
were moved to areas where they
could be spent.
Library special projects is down
to $341),538 from $387,717. The
fund is carrying forward most of
a sales tax revenue transfer from
this year. All of it is set aside to
be spent as needed for building
repair and maintenance.
The health department fund is'
down a little to $82,000 because
of the reduction in. property tax
revenue. These tax funds are re-
mitted to the state, which admin-
isters the county health depart-
ments.
. There is no across-the-board
raise for county employees, al-
though that wouldn't apply to
raises for promotions, anrid con-
stitutional officers can offer their
employees raises at their own
discretion if the funding is there.

Extension update details accomplishments


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Bradford County Exten-
sion Office's ongoing efforts to
educate and improve the quality
of life for residents was detailed
during a recent county cornmmis-
sion program.
Tim Wilson, director of the
local extension office as well as
the agent for livestock and for-
ages, provided the progress re-
port. He works, with agriculture
agent Jim DeValerio, 4-H agent
Debbic Nistler, and family and
consumer sciences agent Mela-
nie Thomas, who is shared with
Baker County.
The agents and extension of-
fice were responsible for nearly
25,000 contacts during the first
half of. the year, and most of
those contacts involved 4-H and
Other school-age youth.
The office laid out five goals
in January, the first being to help
advance the FFA greenhouse
project at the Bradford-Union
Area Career Technical Center.
DeValerio has cooperated with
educators there on the hydropon-
ic farming project. Not only have
students been educated, they
have helped educate others, con-
ducting a workshop on hydro-
ponic farming that drew visitors
from around and out of state.
Wilson has helped as the proj-
ect broadened its scope to include
aquaculture. He and DeValerio.
along with helpers Laurie Comp-
ton and Bob Hochmuth, received
honorary FFA chapter degrees
for their work with the program.
Another example of working


with local schools is the Ag in the
Classroom Project, which helped
classrooms at Starke Elementary
establish vegetable gardens as a
way to learn about agriculture
and nutrition. The extension of-
fice has received a $2,500 grant
from the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices that will "take that program
countywide, providing garden's
for a number of participating
classrooms.
The second goal for 2012 was
to increase food safety education
through food preservation/can-
ning classes. Wilson said Thom-
as takes this area very seriously
and has been awarded for her ef-
forts. Classes were taught in and
out of the county, and additional
classes are planned.
As the family and consumer
sciences agent. Thomas is work-
ing on weight management study
in;rBaker County as well as a
lifestyle` intervention project for
families with children who strug-
gle with weight issues.
The expansion of the 4-1J
program continued as the exten-
sion office partnered with the
Concerned Citizens of Bradford
County's, after-school program,
which resuliEd in 96 new mem-
bers and the fulfillment of the
extension offices third goal for
the year.
"We'll continue to work with
them and provide educational
material for them," Wilson said.
A 4-H classroom embryology
incubating and hatching chicken
eggs taught science, agricultural
literacy and life skills like coop-
eration, planning and empathy to


187 students. Twenty-nine more
developed life skills by undergo-
ing training and acting as camp
counselors at Camp Cherry Lake.
4-H participants in the state leg-
islature program learned life
skills along with the importance
of civic engagement.
It wasn't all hard work though.
A spa day camp was held where
students learned the importance
of relaxation as well as skincare
and nutrition.
On the other end of the spec-
trum, goal number four was
to provide programming for
older citizens through the Brad-
ford County Senior Center, and
they've done that several times.
Ideas for the future include a gar-
dening program.
"1 think it's going to continue
to be a success as that relatiorf-
ship develops with folks that are
(interested in attending. We can
develop programs that meet their
needs," said Wilson.
Goal number five revolved
around developing strategies to,
control the bermudagrass stem
maggot. First identified in Geor-
gia in 2010, this invasive pest
has been found in four fields in
Bradford County. Bradford was
the first Florida county to do so.
Right now there is no research
into how to control this pest, but
the county is helping with that.
"We've got some ideas, and
we're working with these folks
to try to develop those measures
so that we can eliminate that
threat," Wilson said.
Other achievements include:
The office also brought a for-
age management class to local


participants with the help of the
Northeast Florida Beef andi For-
age Group that helped increase
their knowledge of and solve
problems related to pasture tnan-
agement.
Agents provided continued
education credits for restricted
pesticide application license
holders, in the process providing
a significant economic impact-of
nearly $77,000 based on a study
of the economic value.
During financial literacy
month, a course on basic budget-
ing was presented at the public li-
brary with participants receiving
a 12-month money management
book.
Agents have received a num-
ber of awards and recognition.
DeValerio obtained his master's
degree and was promoted to per-
manent status in the extension
program. Wilson, Nistler and
Thomas are all working toward
their doctorate degrees. Each has
also obtained a number of lead-
ership roles, including Nistler's
role as national 4-H president.
Other highlights include par-
ticipating in 38 group teaching
events that reached nearly 3,800
attendees, the coordination of
a national webinar series for
4-H professionals, participation
speaking and disseminating in-
formation at Disney Epcot's gar-
den festival, and participation at
Starke Elementary's career day.
The extension program is
funded by a partnership between
the county and the University of
Florida. For more information,

Tempest feels at home in position of BHS band director


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
In recent history, the position
of band directorat Bradford High
School may have been viewed
as a stepping stone to a position
at another school-a starting
point for those beginning their
teaching careers.
Well, it is a starting point
for Cody Tempest, too, but he
said he has no plans to seek a
position somewhere else. The
BHS position was perfect for
him and his family because they
don't have to relocate. Tempest
and his wife, Chelsea, who
have an 11-year-old daughter-
Camryn-grew up in Union
County and live there.
--"There were other positions
a ailable." Tempest said, "but I
want to be close to home."
Tempest,while going to school
at the University of Florida,
where he earned a degree in
music education, worked a stint
at BHS under former director


Cody Tempest, the new band director at Bradford High School, works with members of the school's percussion
group during an Aug. 27 practice. Students pictured (1-r) are: Logan Gowens, R.J. Martin, Micah Huling, Jenny
Starnes and Chris Wells.


Jonathan Hall and served as
assistant director the past three
years at Union County High
School, where he graduated. ,
"I've always had my eye on


this," Tempest said of the BHS
position. "I know the directors
in Lake Butler aren't going
anywhere anytime soon. This
i was kind of the next place closest
to home. The timing worked out
well. It opened up as soon as I
was graduating. I jumped on the
opportunity."
Tempest said receiving a snare
drum as a gift when he was
an elementary school student
helped fuel his design to play
music.
"I must have played on that
thing for hours-for hours,
driving the family crazy, I'm
sure," he said. ,
When he, entered Lake Butler
Middle School, he joined the
band to be a drummer. He would
go on to serve as the eventual
drum captain at Union County
High School.


Music was what he was good
at, so Tempest said it seemed a
natural field to go into when he
went to college.
While in college, Tempest


taught, various percussion
sections, including the one at
BHS. That, combined with
his leadership "positions in the
UCHS band as a student, led to

Tempest choosing to. pursue .his
degree in music education. After
all, he was already teaching.
"Why not make it official?"
Music education is a broad
degree, Which is why Tempest
enjoyed the opportunity to
serve as the assistant director
at UCHS, It was not only a bit
of a head start on his career, but
* served to show hirm that it was
indeed something he could do.
"I knew I. was going to be
able to be successful at this,"
Tempest said.
Tempest teaches tvo periods
of music at BHS and four
periods at Bradford Middle
School. Just as he has a presence
at both schools, both schools
will have a presence in this'
year's BHS marching band. The
approximately 40-member band.
will consist 'of eighth-graders-
as well as high school students.
Tempest said that not only
provides a boost in numbers, but
will pay off for the band in the
future.
"That'sgit ing'eighth-graders'
another year of experience,"
Tempest said. "That's giving
them just another year in band.
When they come into the high
school 'as freshmen, they've&
,already played their instruments,
played all the marching songs
and marched on the field fora.
whole year.
"Instead of having fourth-
year seniors, we'll have fifth-
year seniors. It's kind of like-
redshirting in college football.
It just helos out and builds the
program."

Flooding and its effect on trees

summer that has led.to flooding
on our rivers, creeks, swamps
and other low lying areas.

to grow and stay healthy, too
much of a good thing can stress
our trees, causing growth loss,
disease, insect outbreaks and, in
some cases, mortality.
A few tree species, such as bald
cypress, are adapted to frequent
flooding and will survive
this excessively wet summer
without harm. However, *many
of our trees will be stressed for
several years even after the
high waters recede. The first
symptoms usually noticed are
leaf yellowing, shoot growth,
crown dieback and defoliation.
There 'are many factors that
determine if a tree will survive
flooding, including species, age,
vigor, flood duration, location,
soil characteristics and time
of year. Once a tree becomes
weakened, it is more prone to
insect and disease damage.
When the ground become
saturated, conditions are ideal
for fungal problems that lead to
.root-rot diseases. Flooded soil
conditions promote reproduction
and dispersal of these fungi, but
also promote the susceptibility
of roots to infection. Saturated
soils also reduce soil oxygen
levels that may cause some roots
to die, leaving the tree with a
smaller root system to recover
from the stress.
Many wood-boring insects
also benefit from weakened
trees. Flooding causes
widespread reduced resistance
to insect damage all at once,
creating ideal conditions for
wood-boring insect populations
to reach epidemic levels.
The best way to help flood
stressed shade trees in a yard
or park is to increase its vigor
and prevent other stress factors,
There are several ways we can
improve tree vigor in our yards,
but due to economic returns and
practicality, these does not apply
to pine plantations.
The first thing you can do to
. help your shade tree is t6 remove

Men's Christian group hosts breakfast, talks of making a stand


: BY CLIFF SMELLEY

A local matter was the main
topic of conversation at a
breakfast hosted by the Men's
Community Fellowship Aug. 25
at the Florida National Guard
armory in Starke, but by the end
of the event, men talked of what
is going on nationally and how

the lawsuits the group has
filed surrounding the Ten

the group paid for and erected
Outside the Bradford County

Fellowship has filed suits
against the county, which, has
requested that the monument
be removed, and local resident
Daniel Cooney. It is in Cooney's
name that American Atheists is
suing Bradford County.
'The discussion prompted
talk of issues in other parts of

National Sept..11 Memorial and

An audience member
mentioned the recent incident
of the Freedorn From Religion
Foundation accusing Georgia's
Ridgcland High School football
coach Mark Mariakis of
violating the First Amendment
by allowing churches to prepare
meals for his team.
Harry Hatcher, a member of
Men's Community Fellowship,
talked of the incident where an
atheist filed a complaint against
a Pennsylvania restaurant
offering a 10-percent discount to
customers who brought church
bulletins with them on Sundays.
'"We have been so beat up as
a Christian community that we
don't think we have any rights
whatsoever," Hatcher said.
In deciding to file their own
lawsuits, Men's Community
Fellowship members' spent a
lot of time discussing whether


it was right to do so as well as
spending day fasting and in
prayer, Hatcher said.
"We didn't take any of this
lightly," Hatcher said. "We want
to be Christ's representatives
here on earth. That is our desire.
We don't want to be like the
world."
With that in mind, Sikes said
the outcome of the lawsuits is
not what \will dictate success or
failure.
"Whether the institution of
man agrees or disagrees with
what we do and how\ x\e do it, it
matters not," Sikes said. "If we
bring one person to the salvation
of Christ, then we have done our
mission."
Sikes did say he believed the
Community Men's Fellowship
lawsuits would be successful,
but stressed that neither he nor
any member of the group was
making promises to such effect.
"What I am telling you is thit


we're going to do our best to give
honor to Christ," Sikes said.
Sikes talked of the events
leading up to this point, stressing
that the Community Men's
Fellowship group's placingof the
monument was done within the
confines of a county ordinance.
The ordinance in question allows
an organization, at its own cost,
to erect a monument at the
courthouse "that memorializes
or celebrates key, significant
events in our collective history
of the community."
The group had to submit an
application for approval. In fact,
due to not being able to erect the
monument in a certain amount of
time, the group had to resubmit
an application for approval.
Sikes said the county's only
involvement in the matter
was approving the monument
application in accordance to
the pertinent ordinance-an
ordinance that allows any other

Response to

Vacant buildings in Bradford Clay School
Sl n Board meeting


The vacant buildings stand-
ing.along U.S. 301 in Bradford
County are telling us something
.we probably don't want to hear.
They stand as silent sentinels,
witnesses to the past and har-
bingers of a future as a bedroom
communityy as business and in-
,dustry fail to- provide jobs for
county residents.
'. Bradford County has a great
deal going for it. It's a good loca-
tion for living free from extreme
:weather conditions, with little
likelihood of damage from hur-
S ricanes or floods, even though
much of the area is located in a
flood zone. Many old citrus trees
have weathered the winter cold,
S' but there are decidedly four dis-
tinct seasons in the year.
We are equidistant from the
two coasts, but near enough for
saltwater fishing and beaches on
the East Coast that are among
.the world's firiest. Freshwater
fishermen have access to six
S lakes. The beautiful, clear water
of Kingsley Lake is just outside
the county, but those lake resi-
dents look to Starke for church
and shopping.
County residents, including,
those living in towns, are church-
-goers, with many denominations
represented, worshipping in
"beautiful buildings. Several fra-
.ternal, civic, veterans and other
'organizations are functioning
with active memberships that at-
tend regular meetings, providing
;.outlets for service and camara-
derie.
Race relations are excellent,
with minorities holding posi-
tions on the board of county
commissioners, the Starke city
council and in the public school.
system.
County residents are made up
ot long-term resideits,-'ffiend -
and neighbors. The crime rate is
envied by city dwellers.
:*. All isn't well on the job front,
though.
Government employees repre-
sent the largest group, employed
by the Department of Correc-
t* ions, the school system, cities
and the county itself, as well as
by various welfare departments.
DuPont employs a limited staff,
paying good salaries, and retail-
ers, including fast-food restau-
rants, provide many jobs, but at
minimum wage. The timber in-
dustry i.s a stable employer, pay-
ing a wide range of wages for-
S. largely manual labor.
A sizable contingent of work-
ers commutes to Gainesville and
elsewhere each day, working in
various fields.
Shands Starke Regional Med-
ical Center is a modern, 25-bed
facility, staffed by medical per-
:i. sonnel and other well-trained
-:, workers. The medical commu-
nity. also has complex consisting
of several buildings that house
a number of doctors working in,
various specialties.
While Bradford County has'
an ample number of medical
personnel and facilities, many
people continue to go to Gaines-
ville for treatment.
The Southern Baptist Church
is predominant throughout the
county with several large con-
gregations, but a dozen other de-


. nominations are represented and
well attended.
The Bradford County school
system leaves something to be
desired, with three schools, in
outlying communities and a cen-
tral high school in Starke. Some
see the biggest problems as the
propensity of voters to change
school superintendents every
four years-a period too short
to implement programs-and
the inauguration of a new high
-school principal annually.
'fn spite of problems at Brad-
ford High School, the county
has outstanding educational fa-
cilities for advanced education
in both vocational and academic
studies. .
The Bradford-Union Area Ca-
reer Technical Center in Starke
provides training in a wide range
of vocations, including long-
distance truck driving, welding,
carpentry and auto mechanics.
Santa Fe College has campus-
es in Starke offering two- and
four-year degrees.
Very few small communities,
offer the educational opportuni-
ties available in Starke.
Starke is the trade center for
area residents purchasing new
Ford, Chevrolet and Dodge prod-
ucts, as well as used vehicles,
- with three franchise dealers and
one major used-car dealer. Au-
tomobile sales appear to be brisk
in area showrooms and lots.

in Starke during and following

four outlets within the city limits.
Three service stations are closed,,

Dtiring. World War II, with
Camp Blanding some 7 miles
away, Starke was a boomtown,
with population straining every
building. When .the war ended,
the population dispersed, and
Starke. reverted to its pre-war
status. .
Starke's current population is
5,449-a 2.6-percent decrease
since 2000. That is a problem
that concerns everyone interest-
ed in the county's future welfare.
Population centers must grow.
Otherwise, they will regress.
The population of Florida has
boomed since the war and now
approaches 20 million, putting
the state fourth behind Califor-
nia, Texas and New York. If
Florida continues to grow, it will
surpass New York for third.
Florida's growth has been
confined to the southern part of
the state-actually south of f-

Florida are stymied in growth.

going for it, such as the educa-
tional opportunities, excellent
transportation facilities and
proximity to the University of
. Florida and Jacksonville, with its
port facilities and other benefits


to almost any kind of endeavor.
What are some of the obsta-
cles to growth? Several things
come to mind, but not necessar-
ily in the order listed:
The high cost of utilities.
Thecity of Starke owns the elec-
trical distribution system and has
a long-term purchasing contract
with Florida Municipal Power
Association from which .it can-
not disengage. Although the city
claims to have lowered the cost
of electricity, the impression re-
mains that rates are too high.
The secondary school sys-
tem-especially Bradford High
School-leaves something to be
desired. Lifting the high school'
to a "B" is essential in attracting
new' investments into -the com-
munity..
Lack of trained work force.
The population of Bradford
County is limited, as it also is in
the surrounding. area. Recruit-
ment of workers by a large em-
ployer would be difficult.
Lack of recreational facili-
ties.. Many old-time residents of
Bradford County sought recre-
ation at Kingsley Lake, either at
the privately owned public facil-
. ity or at privately owned homes
or cottages. Today, there is no
public access to the lake, and
people are living year round in
the homes.
The prison complex, which
is some 9 miles northwest of
Starke, has been a neighbor for
almost 100 years since the first
inmates arrived in 1919. The
.area has benefited by the jobs
created and, more especially,
since salaries were upgraded in
recent years and educational op-
portunities expanded. However,
the proximity to prisons is a hin-
drance to attracting industries to
the area -Both the chamber 6f
commerce and the Department
of Corrections need to do some
public relations in changing the
concept that locating near a pris-
on is detrimental.
Starke's mayor is rotated
among the five elected city com-
missioners. The city needs to
elect a mayor to a four-year term
for the sake of continuity, which
would enable him or her to talk
long-term associations with pro-
spective clients.
U.S. 301 bypass. The by-
pass of Starke is moving closer
to reality and will make itself
felt throughout the business
- community unless it is designat-
ed as a limited-access highway,
confined to the use of commer-
cial vehicles only. If passenger
cars are allowed to bypass the
city, all business entities'depen-
dent on traffic will be seriously
damaged. If the bypass is acces-
sible to all traffic, then look for
the fast-food places in Starke to
move to the Waldo area. Starke
will wither on the vines as other
towns have. A good example is
U.S. I in south Georgia, which

Dear Editor:
I want to be on record as to
certain matters raised at the
August 21 school board meeting.
Specifically, the request for the
board to declare an emergency
and to thus allow the subsequent
introduction of a motion to place
the question of an elected verses
an appointed superintendent of
schools on the November ballot.
In my opinion, the matter
was .poorly conceived, not
researched, lacked legal review,
was badly presented and was
suspect in terms of intent. Staff,
the administration and the board
itself was completely "blind
sighted" by the initiative. With
follow-up review by legal, there
was no basis for declaring an
emergency.
While the foregoing comments
and observations are important,
my grave concern is the
attempted denial of public input
to this critically important matter.
I have consistently argued for
local control of our schools and
for our policies and practices to
mirror and reflect our community
values. We elected officials have
a role and function. An important
part of'the job is to Jisten to the
public. We cannot and should not
pre-empt the rights of the voter.

Lake recovery
plan

Dear Editor:
I A recent Monitor letter to the
editor claimed that an aquifer and
lake reclaimed water "pipeline"
plan being considered to restore
area lakes would be like "turning
Lake Brooklyn into a wastewater
treatment site," harming shallow
wells and drinking water with
pollution.
Water safety and purity 'will- be,
assured in any plan-adopted, by
giving reclaimed and storm water
sources a high degree of advanced
treatment and disinfection and a
natural restoration process that
will ensure that public health,
safety and environmental quality
are protected.
Far from being dangerous,
according to the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, reuse of water is the
key to the State's sustainable
water future. .Currently, Florida
is safely reusing 660 million
gallons of reclaimed water each
day to, conserve freshwater
supplies and replenish our rivers,
streams, lakes and the aquifers.
Beautiful Kanapaha Botanical
Gardens has been served with
reclaimed water by Gaihesville
Regional Utilities since 1994.
This reclaimed water, which
ultimately meets primary and
secondary drinking water quality
standards, conserves our potable
water for drinking and recycles
our used water back to the aquifer

Men's fellowship seeks to bridge denominational, racial divides


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
If you have the same father,
then you are all brothers.
That's a thought that struck
Edgar Beville as he read more
and more of the Bible. He was
raised as a Southern Baptist and
admitted that he was raised in a
home and a church that basically
believed if one wasn't a Southern
Baptist, then that person was
almostt like the enemy."
"If you believe Christ is the
only way to see the Father, then
we're all brothers," Beville
said. "Why can't we be brothers
here (on earth) and not just in
' Heaven?"
* Beville has found a group of
men who hold a similar belief,
and it's one of the reasons for
the formation of the Community
Men's Fellowship group, which
meets every Wednesday at
Western Steer Family Steakhouse
in Starke at 7 a.m.
" Harry Hatcher, one "of the
founding members, said the


genesis of the group was more
than 20 years ago. His heart
was burdened to spend more
time reading and studying the
Bible outside of-Sunday church
services. Plus, he wanted a
chance to fellowship with and
discuss God with. others in the
community who did not attend
the same church as he did.
"We wanted it to be
.communitywide," Hatcher
said. "Many of our friends
and brothers are in different
churches."
What began as seven to
10 men meeting together on
Wednesday mornings is now 20
to 35 men meeting weekly-
men of different races -and men
of different denominations.
"Too many people get hung
up on their individual churches
and denominations, and others,
especially outside, the church,
want to focus on the differences
between denominations,"
group member Ronney Harris
said. "This is. all about Christ,


fellowship and our common
faith.
"That's what really matters
here. That's what's such a
blessing to all of us."
Group member Ken Weaver
said the 'Community Men's
Fellowship has not only grown.
in regard to the number of men in
attendance at weekly meetings,
but also in regard to its purpose.
The group now handles local
Holy Week services prior to
Easter, supports the Food Pantry
and has helped with various
projects, such as, making home
repairs for elderly women.
Chase Hardy, another member
of the group, said, "We want to
reach out to the community
-and let people know that we
love them and God loves them.
That's what we're all about.
That's what we stand for."
. That love is a strong bond
between the men of the group.
Beville experiences it at every
meeting he attends as men aren't
afraid to discuss burdens and


pray together about them.
"We talk about things there
you wouldn't talk about in a,
Sunday school class or even in
church," Beville said. "We even
share tears there. It's lovely.
"That is the highlight of my
week. I've grown to love them,
and I believe most of them love
meY.
The last part of Beville's
statement was meant to draw
some laughs from the group
members present for the
interview with the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor. That's another
characteristic of the group-its
members do like to have fun and
aren't above needling each other.
Most of the men present gave
Beville a hard time,for example,
every time he said, "I've got just
one more thing I want to say,"
while Weaver, when discussing
that the Wednesday meetings
can last anywhere from an hour
to an hour and a half, added, "It
depends on how long-winded
(Hatcher) is that day."


Hardy said Hatcher does come
to every meeting with a topic in
mind he'd like to discuss, but
there is no knowing how things
will play out once the meeting
begins.
"We start off by having a time
of asking if anybody's got any
prayer requests," Hardy said.
"That can last sometimes half an
hour. Of course, that can trigger
various thoughts, and it can take
(Hatcher) in a different direction
than he intended to begin with.
"We're good at chasing rabbits
in there. One idea will trigger
something else."
.Group member Dan Sikes
joked that he's 'never been
at a meeting where Hatcher
doesn't say he meant to discuss
something in particular, but
never got around to it. However,
Sikes believes nothing discussed
at the meetings is by chance.
"I think the Spirit guides it,"
he said. "I really do."
The group just hosted a
breakfast on Aug. 25 at the


Florida National Guard armory
on Edwards Road in Starke that
drew more than 100 men, The
group has hosted such events for
the past three or four years.
Weaver said the group hosts
the breakfasts in an attempt
to reach more men in the
community.
"Men who might not go to
church on Sunday might would
come down here on Saturday,"
he said. "That was part-of -the
motivation."'
Of course,any man is welcome
to attend the weekly meetings at
Western Steer.
"It's just an enjoyable time
every week," Hardy said.

Following the breakfast,
several members of Men's
Community Fellowship talked
with aTelegraph-Times-Monitor
journalist about how trying a
time this has been. However,
the consensus was that this issue
has strengthened their faith and
that'they are doing what is right.
Group member Chase Hardy said
there are too many incidences
of members of the Christian
community backiQg down
when they are challenged by
such organizations as American
Atheists or the American Civil
Liberties Union.
"As a group, we felt it was
time to draw a line in the sand
and put this in God's hand,"
Hardy said. "We're going to
allow God to work through us."

JV has Indians' only score in 21-8 preseason loss:.


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
A Keystone Heights defense
that got burned for 273 yards and
four touchdowns in a half of play
in last year's preseason kickoff
classic against Ridgeview
fared better this year, though
the Panthers took advantage
of a breakdown in the Indians'
secondary for the varsity half's


only score in an'Aug. 24 classic
played in Keystone.
Ridgeview quarterback Josh
-Moore's 47-yard touchdown
pass to Mitchell Galloway
and the subsequent PAT made
the first half a 7-0 affair. The
Panthers' junior varsity team
then outscored Keystone 14-8 in
the second half.

Dickinson said last year's game
was a little different in that
Ridgeview .was implementing
a new offense and thus running
more types of plays than is
normally usual in preseason as
the players continued to learn
the system.
This year, the Panthers, as
well as the Indians, relied on .A
few base plays and kept things
vanilla.
Still, Dickinson was pleased
with his team's overall
performance. The Panthers
gained 169 yards, with Moore
completing 6-of-9 passes for 92
yards, but the lone score didn't
occur until the 3:35 mark of the
second quarter.
"Hopefully, it's something
for us to build on going into the
season," Dickinson said.
The coach said his defensive
unit is not big up front, but the
players are good at getting to the
ball. Defensive lineman Nate
Smith had a good performance,
tackling a running back for
a 4-yard loss, recording two
sacks for a loss of 5 yards and
pressuring Moore into one of his
three incompletions.
"Defensively, I thought we
could be better than we were last
year against them," Dickinson
said.
Keystone's offense never put
itself in scoring position, but
Dickinson said he saw some
good things there. The Indians
did average 4 yards per rushing
attempt, with quarterback Blake
Valenzuela and running back
Alex Gonzales leading the way.
Valenzuela had 35 yards on four
carries, while Gonzales had 23
yards on seven carries.
Valenzuela, who has been
battling Robbie Davis for the
starting quarterback position,
played three of Keystone's four
series.
"Right now, he's a little
farther along," Dickinson said
of Valenzuela, who was 2-of-
5 passing for 26 yards. "The
way he' was playing in the first
quarter, I felt I needed to look
at him one more series (in the
second quarter). He looked like
he was understanding the things
I wanted him to do."
Keystone gained at least one
first down on each of its first
three series, but was never able
to drive deep into Ridgeview
territory.
Valenzuela completed a 15-
yard pass to Grant McGee on
the team's first possession, but
the Indians eventually punted
from their own 37. A 14-yard
scramble by Valenzuela gave
the Indians a first down on
their next series, but a holding
penalty proved to be too much to
overcome. Keystone did make it
past midfield to the Ridgeview
49 after an 11-yard reception, by


possession despite the two sacks
by Smith. A 6-yard reception by
Galloway set up a fourth-and-5
at the Keystone 28. The Panthprs
went for the first, but a fumble
by Moore was recovered by
Keystone's Davis.
A personal foul facemask
penalty helped the'Panthers on
theirnextpossession,givingthem
a first down at the Keystone 47.
That set up Moore's touchdown
pass to Galloway.


The only score of the night
for the Indians came courtesy
of junior varsity running back
Jarrett Tschorn, who broke free
for a 75-yard touchdown in the
second half of the classic. ; "
Tschorn's touchdown, which
occurred with 7:14 to'.play in
the fourth quarter, was capped
by Nolan Lowery's pass to Buck

Area football teams ready


to play games that count


BY CLIFF SMELLY
RegionalNews/Sports Editor


LetThe real season begin.
The Bradford, *Keystone
Heights and Union County high
school football teams open their
seasons in earnest this Friday,
Aug. 31, though only Keystone
had the benefit of a preseason
tuneup as the Bradford-Union
kickoff classic that was to be
played Aug. 24 was canceled due
to poor field conditions because
of rain.
Bradford will be the only
one of the three to travel for its
opener. The Tornadoes will take
on.Palatka, while Keystone and
Union will host Hawthorne and
Fernandina Beach, respectively.
All three games will kick off
at 7:30 p.m.
The start to the 2011 season
was a good one for all three teams
as they all won their openers.
Union gave an indication of
what kind of season it would
be for the Tigers with a 29-3
thrashing of Fernandina Beach.


TheTigers,who went 11-0 before
losing to Jefferson County in the
state, semifinals, racked up more
than 400 yards of offense, while
its defense held the Pirates to 67
yards-44 of which came on one
drive.
The offense shook off
its struggles in the Tigers'
preseason win over Bradford the
previous week, controlling the
clock with long drives. Union
opened the game with an 81-
yard drive that was capped by
quarterback Austin Harden's I1-
yard touchdown run. A 62-yard
run by Walter Mabrey set up the
.Tigers' second score-a 1-yard
touchdown run by Tyson.
Union's third scoring drive
covered 84 yards and was capped
by Kendall Wright's 15-yard
touchdown reception as time
expired in the first half. Harden
completed a pass to Dylan Clark
for the two-point conversion to
send the Tigers into the locker
room up 20-0.
Tyson, who rushed for 155
yards on 28 carries, added an
8-yard touchdown run in the
second half, while Joaquin Lovo


kicked a 20-yard field goal to
cap the scoring.
Things were not so easy f~r
Bradford in its 2011 opener,
but the Tornadoes did get -a
win, defeating Palatka 12-9 in
overtime.
The Tornadoes, who tied the
game, in the fourth quarter, gbt
,a 22-yard field goal from Austin
Chipoletti on the first overtime
.possession. The Panthers lined
;up for their own kick attempt,
but it was blocked by Bradford's
Brian Blackshear.
It was a solid outing for
Bradford's defense, which gave
up four first downs and 86 yards.
Palatka gained just 12 yards -in
the first half, but led 9-3, thanks
to Bradford miscues.
Chipoletti gave the Tornadoes
the game's first score on a 3.0-
yard field goal. A muffed punt,
though, would give Palatka
the ball at the Bradford 1-yard
line. The Panthers scored a
touchdowfi, but Blackshear
blocked the PAT.
An interception gave the

GAMES
Continued from ?B

Panthers the ball at the Bradford
10, but Palatka had to settle for a
41-yard field goal to go up 9-3.
Bradford marched 86 yards
for the game-tying drive in the
fourth quarter. Dexter Clayton,,
who had 109 yards on 17 carries,
rushed for a 23-yard gain that
gave the Tornadoes a first down
a't the Palatka 15. Chipoletti
would eventually score on an
fl-yard run, but the missed PAT
kept the Tornadoes from winning
the game in regulation.
Keystone's 31-14 win over
Hawthorne was in no danger of
going into overtime, but unlike
Union's double-digit win, the
Indians didn't put their opponent
away until the second half.
Hawthorne scored first and
held its lead for most of the
first half.' However, a 2-yard
touchdown pass from Evan
Harvey to Chase Julius as the
second quarter expired sent the
Indians into the break up 10-
6. Logan Stanley, who had an
earlier 26-yard field goal, kicked
the extra point.
* Alex Gonzales, who rushed for
194 yards on 24 carries, ripped


off a 61-yard run to set up his
own 9-yird touchdown run that
put the Indians up 17-6 in the
third quarter. That score came
after the Keystone defense held
Hawthorne on a fourth-down
play at the Keystone 13-yard
line.
Gonzales would add another
touchdown, while Tra'von
phomas'.3-yard touchdown run
put the Indians up 31-6,
. Hawthorne added a 25-yard
touchdowrfl pass to cap'-the
scoring.


KHHS
Continued from 7B

Shobris for a successful two-
point conversion.
Ridgeview scored on two of
its first three series of the junior
varsity half. Quarterback Jordan
Franco had both scores on
touchdown runs of 5 yards each.
Keystone's defense made its
presence felt on the Panthers'
other possessions. Shobris
pressured Franco into an
incompletion on Ridgeview's
second series, which also
featured the Indians' Ty Johnson
dropping a running back for
no gain. Ray Trimble ended
another Ridgeview possession


with an interception, while
Tschorn recovered a fumble on
Ridgeview's last series.
Tschorn led the offense with
79 rushing yards on four carries,
whileTrimible rushed for 34 yards
on six carries. Lowery rushed for
24 yards on eight carries.
Shobris caught both of
Lowery's completions, which
were good for 21 yards.
Keystone's varsity team
will open the regular season
by hosting Hawthorne Friday,
Aug. 31, at 7:30 p.m. The junior
varsity Indians play their first
game Thursday, Sept. 6, at home
against Fernandina Beach at 6
p.m.
