Trio stole from deputy who gave them a ride


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

A Lawtey woman, along with two
Bradford County men, were arrested
early Tuesday after they accepted a
ride home from a deputy, then stole
from him, according to a sheriff's of-
fice report.
Ashley Danielle Lee, 25, David
James Nicklas, 28, and James William
Barnes, 18, were charged with larceny
of law enforcement equipment from
an emergency vehicle. Bond was set
at $10,000 each and all three remained
in jail at press time.
According to a report, Deputies
James Albritton and Amanda Wallace
were on patrol after midnight Tuesday
when they agreed to give the three a
lift back to their Westmoreland Street
home.
Wallace wrote that while the three


Lee Barnes
were in the back seat, Lee put her
back to the vehicle's cage. The dep-
uty wrote that she could see through
a mirror that the woman was holding
some items Albritton had stowed in a
seat caddy.
Wallace wrote that when she and
Albritton dropped the threesome off,
Albritton could tell some of the items


he had stored
in the organizer
were missing.
The two depu-
Sties found a
1 sheriff's office
i" recorder and its
case in the wom-
San's purse. They
S ,1 also found Albrit-
... \ i, 'ton's binoculars
in the back of a
Nicklas pickup truck Lee
had walked over to
after she got out of the patrol vehicle.
Wallace wrote the Lee told her that
Nicklas and Barnes told Lee which
items to steal.
The charges against the defendants
are not proven and they are presumed
innocent until adjudicated guilty by a
court.

Zachary Cooper



Body found

could be

Belmont

teen

According to a press release sent
out by the Clay County Sheriffs Of-
fice, preliminary investigative results
indicate that skeletal remains located
in a wooded area off C.R. 352 over
the weekend may be those of missing
Keystone Heights teenager Zachary
Cooper.
While an exact identification has
yet to be made by the Medical Exam-
iner in Jacksonville using dental re-
cords and/or.DNA analysis, evidence
collected at the scene leads detectives
to believe it is the missing Lake Re-
gion teen.. The cause of death is as yet
undetermined.
Cooper was reported missing by his
father in April 2009.
Last Sunday afiernoon,'""~e new
owners of a C.R. 352 property spotted
the skeletal remains while out walking
the,wooded area. They contacted law
enforcement, which responded to the
site and recovered the remains and re-
lated evidence.
Cooper's family has been notified
but do not wish to discuss the discov-
ery at this time.
Because the cause of death is un-
known until the medical examiner
renders an opinion, CCSO will riot
speculate about how the teen died.

Slowly but surely, county catching up with road work


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Road repair and maintenance took
center stage during and after the public
comment period at the Sept. 20 Brad-
ford.County Commission meeting.
At the same meeting, the commis-
sion once again extended a local state
of emergency first declared during
Tropical Storm Debby sq its road de-
partment could continue addressing
problems the storm created on private
roads.
Normally the county would be pro-
hibited from working on privately
owned roads, but the emergency dec-
laration provides a rare opportunity to
work on roads that generally receive no
maintenance.
Since the storm and subsequent
rains, calls for road repair have come
in almost as fast as they can be logged.
The need on private and county-owned
roads has been immense and frankly
more than the road department has
been able to keep up with, but that
hasn't kept it from trying.
At the county commission meeting,
Hampton resident Andrew Timmons
said he had been waiting long enough,
"The road is gone. It's just shot," said
Timmons of Southeast 1.01" Street. He
said he and others have had to park at
Macedonia Baptist and wade to their
homes down the street because drain-
age was insufficient to carry the water
away. One side of the road is without

a ditch.
"This has been going on for years,"
Timmons said, adding he's a taxpayer
and the hassle hbs been 'ridiculous.'
"I'm tired of walking my family down


the road to go home. I'm paying $2,400
a year in taxes. That's a lot of money to
pay (when) you've got to walk home
in mud."
Recently contractors working on


waterlines for the- city of Hampton
made problems worse by crushing the
culvert at.Timmons' house, and when

Starke budget approved, sewer rates TBD


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegrooh Editor

Starke's budget for 2012-13
has been approved, but not be-
fore an important element came
under fire by one commissioner.
Commissioner Tommy
Chastain disagreed with the sew-
er rate hike included in the bud-
get and how it was being imple-
mented.
The rate increase was one of
the major steps taken to balance
the budget, which was facing a
deficit of more than $1 million
when the process began.

Chastain voted against the bud-
get Sept. 11, saying not enough
had been done to inform the pub-
lic of the rate change.
The inability of the water and
wastewater utilities to cover their
expenses has been noted in the
past. A few years ago, 5 percent
annual increases in the consump-
tion rates were implemented to
try and catch up, but even as the
rates rose, so did expenses.
Last year the commission tried
to close the gap in the sewer bud-
get by raising consumption rates
22.5 percent, while water rates


rose another 5 percent. Because,
however, the only the consump-
tion side of the rate structure was
changed and overall consump-
tion decreased, the city didn't ac-
complish its goal.
This time.around, in additional
to the annual 5 percent consurip-
tion rate increase for water and
sewer, City Clerk Linda Johns
said her original suggestion of
raising the base rates for sewer
service should be implemented
for 2013. Customers pay the base
rate regardless of monthly con-
sumption. The commission ac-
cepted this scenario as it moved
forward to close the remaining
budget deficit.

But during the commission's
public budget hearing on Sept.
10, Chastain asked if by voting
on the budget, the commission
was actually voting to pass the
rate increase along to customers'
without a public hearing.
Johns pointed out there were
in a public hearing on the budget,
and she said voting to approve
the budget was the same thing as
voting on the rate increase.
Chastain disagreed and said
the city couldn't do that.


"We wouldn't have a separate
hearing for a rate increase?" he
asked. He insisted a separate vote
took place when the commission
raised sewer rates by 22.5 per-
cent last year.

Johns disagreed, but Chastain
produced minutes at the follow-
ing meeting that showed the
commission voted on the previ-
ous sewer rate increase in June
2011. months before it approved
its budget for 2012.
On Sept. 25, City Attorney
Terry Brown advised the corm-
mission that it could approve
the 2013 budget predicated on a
future rate increase, but it would
need to vote on the. actual rate
increase at a properly advertised
meeting. If the commission does
not approve the rate increase an-
ticipated by the budget when the
time comes, it will have to go
back and make a budget amend-
ment.
With that clarification, the
board voted 5-0 to approve the
budget, including Chastain, who
had voted against the budget dur-
ing the first public hearing. He
has said he couldn't go forward
with the rate increase without a


rate study, which is currently un-
der way, and an opportunity for
the public to be heard on the is-
sue.
Florida Statute 180.136 reads:
"Before a local government wa-
ter or sewer utility increases any
rate, charge, or fee for water or
sewer utility service, the utility
shall provide notice of the pro-
posed increase to each customer
of the utility through the utility's
billing process. The notice shall
state the date, time, and place
of the meeting of the governing
board of the local government
at which such increase will be
considered. The notice required
in this section is in addition to
any notice and public meet-
ing requirements for ordinance
adoption as provided by general'
law."

Commissioners have indicated
they would look at the proposal
again following the completion
of the rate study.
Under the proposed rate struc-
ture, the base rate'for sewer cus-
tomers would increase $6 per
month to $23.75 for more than
1,600 residents in the city. Resi-
dential. sewer customers outside


the city' (54 customers) would
see their base rate increase by
$10 to $36.20.
The base rate increase for com-
mercial customers is based oni
meter size. The base rate for 554'
customers with 1-inch meters
would increase $12 per month to
$29.75. The rate for 20 custom-
ers with 1.25- to 1.5-inch meters'
would increase by $15 to $39.30.
The rate for 49 customers with
2-inch meters would increase,'
$18 to $54.20. The rate for sev-
en customers with 3-inch meters
would increase $20 to $83.50.'
The rate for six customers with
4-inch meters would increased
$25 to $127..50. The rate for one
customer with an 8-inch meter
would increase $30 to $327.50.
The rate increase would gen-
erate an additional $222,000 fot
the city and help the sewer de-
partment cover its costs, accord,
ing to Johns.
' The final budget approved,
which includes revenue fronf
the tentative rate increase,, wa4
$16,994,201. That includes
$4,020,225 in the general fund
in the $12,366.750 enterprise
fund and $607,226 in special
revenues.






complete by next week, allowing
time for inclement weather. Theti
full attention can be returned to
the county roads and the reguld
maintenance schedule.
County commissioners finr
ished their meeting last Thurs
day by expressing their appre;
ciation for the road department
and acknowledging the pressure,
it's been under. Chairman Ross
Chandler said the county cannot
do everything for people. but it
does try to provide safe roads for
everyone. It won't happen over-
night, however, he said.


the water backed up this time, it
submerged his air-conditioning
unit.
The culvert was- eventually
replaced, but it is not enough to
handle all of the water Timmons
said.
"This isn't just something that
started the day before yesterday.
It's been over and over and over,
and everybody comes up with the
same lie-'We're going to get to
it,' he said.
Whatever may have happened
in the past, Timmons' county
commissioner, Danny Riddick,
said the county has been trying to
deal with the problem as quickly
as possible. The extenuating cir-
cumstance in this case was the
'Hampton water project.
Riddick said because the origi-
nal water lines were so shallow,
it was difficult to' dig the ditch
without damaging the pipes. The
new lines have been moved and
lowered, but the project was just
completed last week. Another
culvert Timmons had requested
for the road was already waiting


The Great Pumpkin Escape
returns to downtown Starke Sat-
urday, Oct. 27, from 5 to 9 p.m.
Everyone from Starke and the
surrounding communities is in-
vited to take part in this safe ail-
ternative to trick or treating.
The festival features enter-
tainment, games, food and free
candy. Popular events include
the Crash and Bash, costume
contests, and a haunted house.
Plus, downtown restaurants and
the movie theater will be open


at the church, Riddick said. He
pointed out that while Timmons
and his family had been able
to get to their homes, others in
Bradford County could not.
County Manager Brad Carter
confirmed 101" would be a pri-
ority as soon as roads in even,
worse shape were repaired.
The commission wasn't able to
calm Timmons (he promised he
would be back with more people
if the problem was not solved),
but heis far from the only resi-
dent upset about road conditions.
Residents like William Frakes of
Northeast 26'h Avenue have been
calling the county road depart-
ment. Frakes, who drives a large
truck for a living, told the Tele-
graph he had to park it elsewhere
because-the road was in no con-
dition fo the traffic.
Thereiwas a pothole so large
and filled with water than when
his daughter drove through it, wa-
ter entered the car, he said. Other
cars were damaged by the same
hole. After a call was placed to
the road department, a work or-


for dinner and a show.
The Pumpkin Escape is spon-
sored by the Downtown Business
Community Association, the city
of Starke and others. Proceeds
benefit the Naomi Herres sch6l-
arship fund, awarded to two high
school'students annually.

crew came and filled the pothole,
he said, but no other work has
been performed. There are other
holes up and down the road, said
Frakes.
"The road is still in rough
shape," he said.
But there have been days in
recent weeks when the road de-
partment has received 30 or more'
calls for service, according to
Road Superintendent Paul Fun-
derburk.
"We're trying to prioritize the
worst ones where an ambulance
or fire truck cannot get in," he
said over the phone Monday.
They've been working their way.
down the list from there, and the
"they" are the 10'employees re-
sponsible for maintaining 319
miles of county-owned roads,
plus the private roads damaged
during the storms (not including
the two mowers).
"We've been working on the
private roads since the storm, but
we've also been working on the
county roads. A lot of people get


the impression we haven't been,
but we have been working on our
roads also," said Funderburk. All
dirt roads were damaged, and,
generally speaking, the private
roads much more than the oth-
ers.
"I understand everybody's
frustration. Nobody hates it
worse than me," he said, adding
that it upsets him that residents
are upset. "Even though I don't
live on a dirt road. I hate to see it,
because it's my job to keep them
up."
Funderburk said he hopes all

County strengthening 911 reliability


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A recent power outage sent the
sheriff's office scrambling to re-
store 91 I service when its backup
didn't work as expected.
In the past, it hasn't been an
issue. Occasionally, electric ser-
vice is interrupted and batteries
and generators kick in automati-
cally to keep things running.
An Aug. 29 power failure,
however, resulted in the 911
communications system going
down for 17 minutes, according
to Sheriff Gordon Smith.
"It doesn't sound like long un-
less you're the person on the tele--
phone trying to get communica-
tions with emergency personnel,"
Smith said. Fortunately, they
were later able to determine that
there were no incoming 911 calls
while the system was down.
The generator kicked in within
a few seconds as it was supposed
to, but there was a problem. Ac-
cording to Sgt. Ray Shuford,
who oversees communications
and the emergency 911 system
for the sheriff's office, when the
city's power dropped, something
went wrong with the feed from
the generator, which was other-
wise working properly.
It took time to track exactly
what along the line was keeping
the power from reaching com-
munications. A team had been


preparing the 911 satellite office
located inside the courthouse to
begin taking calls, but that takes
time, too. In the meantime, the
batteries powering conintmiiica-
lions were exhausted.
"When they gave out, that
put our 911 system in the dark."
Shuford said. "We were able to
go back once the system was
back online and actually calcu-
late it was 17 minutes we were
totally offline.without any way to
answer any phones."
Given the center's call vol-
ume, which answers calls for
everything from medical and
law enforcement emergencies
to notifications about city power
outrages. it was surprising to find
that no calls had been missed
during the down time.
The situation nevertheless
brought to light the need for ad-
ditional redundancy.
"The communications center
cannot be down for a minute, let
alone 17 minutes, because that is
the lifeline of Bradford County,"
Smith told the commission last
Thursday.
The plan is to set up.a second-
ary generator and transfer switch
that will detect both the munici-
pal power failure and whether
the first generator is powering
the building. If the power failure
damages the first generator or its
interface, the second will kick
in within 30 seconds, providing


power to communications and
the emergency operations cen-
ecr.
"Tlhis takes out any one single
point of failure," Shuford said.
Bradford County Emergency
Management was able to provide
an additional generator acquired
from government surplus. The
money for the additional electric
work required to set the system
up-$22,693-was available in
the Intergovernmental Commu-
nication Fund.
The commission approved
the cost proposal from Stokes
Equipment Sales in Ocala,,which
includes the sheriff's office pur-
chasing some equipment through
a local contact for Graybar.
The redundant generator sys-
tem should make 911 communi-
cations more reliable in an emer-
gency. But,according to Shuford,
if the worst happened and Brad-
ford County couldn't take calls
directly, there are agreements in
place that would ensure calls are
routed to a neighboring county.
Bradford would send staff to
help answer those calls.
The county also has a mobile
system using laptop computers
that can be set up wherever there
is an Internet connection. As long
as there is no equipment fail-
ure in the main call center, calls
can be forwarded to dispatchers
wherever they are using voice-
over-Internet technology.


City postpones action


against animal owners


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Should farm animals be pro-
hibited inside the Starke city lim-
its for residents in the city's most
rural settings?
That was the question before
the commission Sept. 25 when
a couple of passionate animal
owners challenged the code en-
forcement notices they received
giving them 30 days to get rid of
* th e iF ai- rifi si ". ~ "~
Brenda TrogdorlZipperer lives
and works in the city and said
she was frustrated to learn after
11 years on Faxson Lane that she
was not allowed to keep animals
in the city. Someone who was
not even a neighbor made a cbm-
plaint, she said, and she was con-
tacted by the code enforcement
officer. In all of the years she has
owned horses, chickens and pigs,
she said, no one had ever com-
plained.
Zipperer said she complied
with the request after she found
out there was no way she would
be allowed to keep the animals. It
wasn't easy, because a's a single
mom with a now empty nest,
these animals were companions,
so she asked the commission if
there was another way.
She said she understood the
complainant was adamant that


the animals be removed from
the city; but while her property
.is just inside the city limits, she
questioned just how much of a
city resident she really is.
-She said she receives no ser-
vices from the city -other than
city power. Repeated requests
for an extension of city utilities
by other residents in that area
have not been acted on, so just
as the city demanded she get rid
of her animals, she demanded the
city serve her with utilities. If
that's not going to happen, then
her property should be excluded
from the city limits, she said.
"I'm the one who is the vic-
tim here," Zipperer said, adding
there are other residents in the
city who don't want to give up
,their animals. "Now since I'm
one of those, who are truly vio-
lated and inconvenienced, I wish
to reap the benefits of the rest of
the city." she said.
Kevin Baker rents his Crumb
Street home from Telegraph pub-
lisher John Miller, and he said
they were equally puzzled when
a letter came from code enforce-
ment.
While Zipperer's lot comprises
a single acre, Baker lives on 1.0
acres with a barn. His children,
who spend their time outside in-
stead of front of a television, raise
,pigs and horses, he said. Unlike

Beau Nistler


Bradford 4-H'er elected

to state position


Beau Nistler was elected state
4-H Council president for the
2012-13 4-H year. Beau is excit-
ed to get Florida 4-H'ers excited
about 4-H and engaging in their
communities.
"The Hunger Games" is the
state 4-H service project ad-
dressing hunger and poverty in
Florida, and this is his platform
for the year. Beau believes it is
important to get involved in your


local community and wants to
see every 4-H member get ex--
cited about this, too.
Beau has been in 4-H for 13
years and is very active in live-
stock, shooting sports and serves
as a 4-H camp counselor during
the summer. Beau is a senior ini
high school and hopes to attend
the University of Florida and
study botany after serving in the
U.S. Coast Guard.


Zipperer, he had not removed his
animals; and he asked the com-
mission for a special exception
so that he wouldn't have to.
"They haven't been a nui-
sance," he said, pointing out they
live on a dead end road.
City Attorney Terry Brown
said the commission could re-
visit- its land. dev.eopment code
and come up with a reasonable
accommodation.
"I don't frankly believe it was
intended to probibit,.nijmals on
10-acre parcels,'" Brown said.
The city could amend the code
and create exceptions based on
lot size, he suggested.
Based on a look at the city's
zoning map, there are at least
three zoning designation in that
area of the city. One is for low-
density residential development,
another is for mobile homes, and

County Extension Service.
SReaders who wish to pose
gardening questions should

j man atjtd@ufl.edu.

/ I have'some large brown patch-
Ses in my yard and suspect the prob-
lem may be sod webworms. What
can you tell me about this pest, and what should
I do to control it?
'The tropical sod webworm is the most common
caterpillar that attacks turfgrass. Webworms will
attack all types of grasses, but they prefer Bermu-
da and are least likely to infest Bahia. The larvae
are green with black spots when young, and turn
brown when mature, reaching a length of about
inch. It's hard to spot the larvae during the day be-
cause they curl up in the soil during the day and
feed at night. Newly hatched larvae skeletonize
grass blades, while older larvae chew on grass
blades near the soil surface.
Sod webworm adults are small, tan or gray
moths with a wingspan of M to one inch. They do
not cause damage. Moths hide in shrubs and oth-
er sheltered areas during the day, begin flying at
dusk, and lay clusters of six to fifteen eggs on grass
at night. Eggs hatch about a week later.
In this part of Florida, sod webworms are usu-
ally not a problem until August. Damage begins
in small patches of short-clipped grass. Injured
grass has notches chewed along the sides
of the blades or is eaten back unevenly. ,iG
Sod webworms may weaken the'lawil but
usually do not kill the grass. Because the "
damage occurs late in the growing season,
the lawn may not completely recover until
spring. These pests usually do not survive
our north Florida winters.
You can control sod webworms with the UFlI
same insecticides as other lawn insects,. n":
but you may also use treatments that con-
tain Bacillus 'thuringiensis, a bacterium that only
kills caterpillars and won't harm beneficial insects
in your yard.

yard that I would like to dig up and put in pots.

this, and what type ,
of potting mixture
should I use? .
SAmaryllis can be
grown very success-
fully in containers in-
doors or in greenlous-
es. You can transfer
them from beds into
pots from September
through January. -
Amaryllis .can be -
forced to bloom in late
winter by inducing a Mary W. Bridgman
dormant period. Dig
the plants in fall and place them in a dry, shaded
area for six to eight weeks. When you are ready
to pot the bulbs, remove declining foliage. Be-
cause amaryllis flower stalks get top-heavy when
in bloom, make sure the container is substantial
enough that it will not tip over. You can add weight
by placing a two to three inch layer of gravel in the
bottom of the pot.
Cover the drainage holes with pebbles or pieces
of broken clay pottery and fill the pot with several
inches of potting soil, amended with organic mate-
rial such as peat moss. Center the bulb in the con-
tainer and firm the medium around the roots and
bulb base. When forcing amaryllis, pot them with
one-half to two-thirds of the bulb above the soil to
induce early flowering.
Water'the potting medium thoroughly and place
the container in a cool,,bright location. No further
watering is necessary until the bulb begins
AROSER to sprout. When growth begins, move the
M container to a location where it will re-
ceive several hours of direct sunlight and
temperatures close to 75 degrees. Keep
the soil consistently moist, but not over-
" watered. Fertilizer is not necessary.
Once the flowers open, remove the
O'i]- plant from the bright sunlight to prolong
,,t.n the life of the flowers. The buds will open
in succession and each will last about two
weeks.
When the flowers fade, place the plant in light
shade and water and fertilize to encourage the
growth of new leaves. Bulbs can be left in their
original containers for two or more years before
repotting is necessary.

WHAT EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN HOUSING
The sale and purchase of a home is one of the most significant events that an
individual will experience in their lifetime. It is more than the simple
purchase of housing, for it directly impacts the hopes, dreams, aspirations,
and economic destiny of those involved. It is for this reason that the Fair
Housing Act and other federal and state laws were enacted to guarantee a
right to a national housing market free from discrimination based on race,
color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, and national origin.

If you feel you or someone you know has had their fair housing rights
violated you can make a complaint by:

1. Filling out an online form at
http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/topics/housingdiscrimination
or
2. Calling Toll Free: (800) 440-8091

McRae couple: "We didn't burn down our home"


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

A husband and wife in the
McRae area. under suspicion by
fire investigators, say they did
not set their own home on fire
Sept. 17.
Clay County Fire Rescuc re-
splnded twice to the residence of'
Shawn and Lorie Raysin within
a nine-hour time period Sept. 16
and 17.
Shawn Raysin said he was
deep-frying french fries when the
first blaze occurred around 7:30
p.m. Sunday night.
He added that after Clay Coun-
ty Fire Rescue extinguished the
grease fire, a smoldering pile in
his backyard likely reignited sev-
eral hours later, leveling the mo-
bile home at 5999 Campo Drive.
A State Fire Marshal investiga-
tor told the Lake Region Monitor
last week that although his agen-
cy's investigation has turned up
no physical evidence of arson,
detectives are classifying the
blaze as suspicious4because of
the Raysins' background.
In November 2010, the couple
was arrested for arson involving
the same house that burned down
earlier this month. They later
pleaded to a lesser charge, felony
criminal mischief.
In the sworn complaint that
resulted in the couple's Novem-
ber 2010 arrest, an investigator
claimed another home on the
same slab had earlier burned to
the ground, and previous to that
blaze, the Raysins' kitchen had
caught fire. Fire Marshal inves-
tigator David Young also wiote
that the couple's two vehicles
had also caught fire in two sepa-
rate incidents, bringing the total
number of fires associated with
the couple to five, at the time of
their arrest.
Now the Raysins claim that
inaccuracies in Young's report,
in addition to a rush to judgment
among fire investigators resulted
in their 2010 arrest. They add
that it appears those same factors
now are putting their freedom in
danger.
Shawn Raysin said investigl-
tors failed to take into account
the history of the structure that
burned on April 19, 2010.
"We bought the house and
were in this house for nine
months," he said. "There were
things in the hquse that did not
work. There were electrical re-
ceptacles that didn't work. The
dishwasher didn't work. The
exhaust fan in our kids' bath-
room didn't work. It took us nine
months to get the factory here to
address those things. He came,
was here all day. And I guess he
either worked on or replaced the
exhaust fan in the bathroom. He
left a around 3:00 and at 6:00 that
bathroom was on fire."
The Raysins claim now that
the exhaust fan, worked on ear-
lier that day, caused the blaze in
their children's bathroom.
However, Young wrote in his
report that labs at both FDLE and
ATF determined the fan did not
cause the fire.
He also wrote that he deter-
mined that fire did not origi-
nate from the ceiling, but from
the floor, in a pile of children's
clothing.
SHe added that a key part of his
investigation was the questioning
of the couple's two boys.
"During the course of your
affiant's investigation," Young
wrote in his report. "th'e two
children who live in the home
were separated and questioned.




Quilters
creating
holiday gifts
The Sunshine Quilters will
have its monthly meeting on
Wednesday, Oct.. 10, from 1 to 3
p.m. at the Bradford County Se-
nior Center.
The next three meetings will
focus on turning fabric and trim
from the Sunshine Quilier dona-
tion stash into great holiday gifts.
The Oct. 10 instructor is Dorothy
Bartlett, famous for her clever


cloth bags for all occasions.
These bags are a perfect alterna-
tive to expensive gift-wrap for
odd shaped gifts and can easily
be a stand-alone gift.
Miss Minnie will demonstrate
clever ways of decorating log


Both individuals denied setting
the fire. When arked- where the
children keep their ir dirty clothes,
both responded in a hamper
inside of their bedroom. Both
children stated they never leave
clothes in the bathroom floor.
Both children denied leaving
clothing on the floor the day of
the fire."
However, Lorie Raysin said
her children made no such
statements to the investigator,
and added that her boys routinely
leave clothing on the bathroom
floor.
"We have two teenaged boys,"
she said. "They go-in, they take a
shower, they chunk the clothes on
the bathroom floor. That's what
they do. So there were clothes on
the bathroom floor."
Shawn also said that how their
insurance company investigated
the fire adds.credibility to their
own claims.
"In the meantime, our insur-
ance company sent out a profes-
sional point-of-origin specialist'
that rebuilt that bathroom after
the fire and an electrical investi-
gator. Neither one of them found
a problem. Our insurance cqmpa-
ny paid out. David Young comes
back and says that the ATF said
that that fan didn't start the fire."
The Raysins also dispute some.
of Young's assertions about
previous.fires. While they admit
a previous blaze totaled a mobile
home on the same slab, they
denied Young's claim ofan earlier
kitchen fire. They also admitted
that Lorie's vehicle caught fire
while Shawn was driving, but
deny that Shawn's truck caught
fire. And they assert that the
circumstances surrounding the
fire that damaged Lorie's vehicle
point away from arson.
"I was driving her car," Shawn
recalled. "It caught fire under-
neath the car, in the middle of
town at a red light."
"In Aubundale, Florida," add-
ed Lorie. "And it had been at the
shop the day before. Nothing in-
side the car burned- all outside
and it started underneath the car.
So how are you going to start a
fire in the middle of town at a red
..light?"
However, the Raysins could
have contested all the claims
Young made in his report in a
trial. Instead, they pleaded to a
lesser charge. A judge sentenced
both to 24 months' probation,
100 hours of community service
and other costs. They are still on
probation for the May 2011 plea.
"We spent $13,000 cash money
out of our pocket for a lawyer
and to get out of jail," said Lorie
Raysin of the 2010 arrest, "and
then our lawyer said that it would
cost $30,000 to get experts to
come in and dispute the fire. 1
didn't have $30,000."
She added that since they had
already spent more than $5.000
on a private attorney, they were
precluded from help from a public
defender and that the prospect of
-having to defend themselves in
court forced the couple into the
plea agreement.
"So we had no choice," she
said. "And I wasn't going to risk
going to prison and having two
teenaged kids at home. Trust
me, we thought about it. He did
"not want to plead and 1 cried
everyday and said please take the
plea offer."
"Our attorney told us that if
we didn't have $30,000, he was
done," said Shawn.
So the couple took the offer,
which contained no jail time.
They said they have met all


cabin blocks for Thanksgivinig
and Christmas. Star patterns also .
make the basis for great decora-
tions and gifts.
These fall meetings are a per-
fect time for non-quilters arid
even people who haven't used a
sewing machine in a long time to
come, bring a friend and share a
Wednesday day afternoon in a
fun and productive manner.

ter supporters for helping make
the booth at the Friends of the
Library Graft and Flea Market
a success. Special thanks goes
to Linda Larson for her expert
help in pricing and especially for

behind them until fire marshal
investigators again showed up at
their home on Sept. 27.
Shawn said that the Sunday
afternoon grease fire made' the
home uninhabitable, so the
family moved in with Lorie's
parents, who live nearby.
Loric said that early Monday
her father and brother were
returning home from a fishing trip
when they saw flames coming
from 5559 Campo Drive.
Later that day, fire marshal
investigators arrived on the
property.
"They were here a good 10 to
12 hours," recalled Shawn.
He added that the home was
insured only Ior the balance 'of
the mortgage.
"No financial gain," he said..
"Our house had forced insurance.
There is not a penny above what
is owed on this house that is
insured."
A public information officer
for the state fire marshal's office
did not return a call seeking
comment for this story.

ASSESSMENT INCREASES; DELAY OF SCHEDULED REPEAL.-

Ballot Summary:
(1) This would amend Florida Constitution Article VII, Section 4 (Taxation; assessments) and Section 6 (Homestead

ments.
(2) In certain circumstances, the law requires the assessed value df homestead and specified nonhomestead property to
increase when the just value of the property decreases. Therefore. this amendment t provides that the Legislature may, by general
law, provide that the assessment of homestead and specified nonliomestead property may not increase if the just value of that
property is less than the just value of the property oin the preceding January 1, subject to any adjustment in the assessed' alue
due to changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to such property which are assessed as provided for by general law. This
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 I. 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, shall take effect
January 1,2013.
(3) This amendment reduces 'fiom 10 percent to 5 percent the limitation on annual changes in assessments of non-
homestead real property. This amendment takes effect upon approval of 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, takes effect January 1,2013.
(4) This amendment also authorizes general law to provide, subject to conditions specified in such law, an additional
Homestead exemption to every person who establishes the right to receive the homestead exemption provided in the Florida Con-
stitution within I year after purchasing the honiestead property and who has not owned property in the previous 3 calendar years
to which the Florida homestead exemption applied. The additional homestead exemption shall apply to all levies except school
district levies. The additional exemption is an amount equal to 50 percent of the homestead property's just value on January 1
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
preceding January I of the year the homestead is established. The additional exemption shall apply for the shorter of 5 years or
the year of sale of the property. The amount of the additional exemption shall be reduced in each subsequent year by an amount
equal to 20 percent of the amount of the additional exemption received in the year the homestead was established or by an amount
equal to the difference between the just value of the property and the assessed-value of the property determined underArticle VII,
Section 4(d), whichever is greater. Not moite 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
held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, or to property purchased on or after January 1,2012, if approved by
the voters at the 2012 general election. The additional exemption is not available in the sixth and subsequent years after it is first

ment delays until 2022 the submission of an amendment proposing the abrogation of such repeal to the voters.

NO.5
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 Lecislature 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 tlhe 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 presout.
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. Otce 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 alsd 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.

TEEN
Continued from 1A

In 2009, the Lake Region Mon-
itor reported that the 15-year-old
former Keystone Heights High
School student was last seen on
April 11 of that year.
: His parents, Dale Cooper of
Belmont and Helena Walter of
Navarre, distributed flyers in the
Lake Region when the teen went
missing. They began a desperate
attempt to find their son after no
changes were made on his MyS-
pace and other online pages for
several days.
The teen had a history of leav-
ing home. At the time, his father
told the Monitor he feared his
son sometimes slept outdoors
near their home or elsewhere.
: Cooper has been on Florida's
list of missing or endangered
children for the last three years.
'Detective John Parker, then
working on the case, told the
Monitor that Cooper had been
known to stay with friends in
the Keystone Heights area, but
might also be eventually located
in Gainesville or Jacksonville.
According to unofficial lo-
cal sources, the body was found
along with the boy's identifying
clothing, cell phone and other
items.


ANIMALS
Continued from 3A

erties.
Animals are slowed on agri-
culturally zoned properties with
some restrictions. For example,
swine and commercial poultry
operations are prohibited even
on five or more acres. On parcels
between 2.5 acres and 5 acres.
agricultural residences can have
up to 40 chickens, as well as two
horses and two cows;
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
called the' complaint and its re-
sults pitiful. If this was in town it
would be an issue, he said., but on
the outskirts of the city it should
not be.
The commission voted to in
struct the city code enforcement
officer not to proceed with any
hearing on these cases until the
commission has reviewed its
regulations.
Commissioner Carolyn Spoon-
er said code enforcement must act
when a complaint is made, and so
the letters the residents received
were not personal. She said any
future action by the commission
should, however, consider the
feelings of all the residents who
could be affected.

FCCD honors longtime

Lawtey police chief
The Florida Council on Crime and Delinquency,
one of the oldest and largest police benevolent
A i. associations in the state, has recognized Lawtey
- Police Chief Millard "Butch" Jordan with its Criminal
Justice award. The award was presented by Sheriff
SGordon Smith, a past president of the organization,
at the Sept. 20 county commission meeting. Smith
said he had respected Jordan throughout his career,
actually throughout his entire life. He said Jordan hadt
a servant's heart and a tendency to tell it like it is.
A native of Pennsylvania, Jordan came to Bradford
County in 1957, working with the fair. He married
Barbara Thompson and they had five children. He
began working with the Starke Police Department in
1959. In 1962, he was appointed as interim chief of
police in Lawtey, and he was elected to the position
later that same year. He has been serving the city
of Lawtey and Bradford County in that position
ever since. December will mark 50 years since that
election, a record amount of time. FCCD says Jordan
has spent that time being an innovative, responsive
and dedicated leader who proves that an-individual
can make a positive impact on their communities.
Smith presented Jordan the plaque FCCD had
prepared for its state convention, which Jordan was
unable to attend.

Rezoning helps prepare for church campground


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

FIll,. .ing a public hearing
Sept. 20, the Bradford County
Commission adopted an ordi-
nance rezoning multiple parcels
Kl,',ni :n to a Keystone Heights
church to allow for a camp-
ground.
Zoning Director Randy An-
drews explained Keystone Unit-
ed Methodist Church had ap-
plied to rezone the parcels from
the residential-single family and
residential-single family/mobile
home categories to rural residen-
tial.
.. The parcels comprise nearly
24 acres off of Southeast S.R. 21
both behind Keystone Method-
ist and between the church and a
neighboring Lutheran church.
Andrews said if tlh applica-
tion were approved, it would al-
low the church to place a camp-
ground for recreational vehicles
on the church's property. The re-
quest was made to accommodate
a traveling group of church and
community helpers known as the
NOMADS, which stands for No-
mads on a Mission Active in Di-
vine Service. The area of service


SRWMD
distributes
payment in
lieu of taxes
The Suwannee River Water
Management District will cle-
liver a total of $346,103.52 to
11 counties as payment in lieu of
taxes this year.
The payment program was cre-
ated by the Florida Legislature
to help reduce the fiscal impact
to rural counties when the state
:or district acquires lands. Since
land owned by the district is tax-
exempt, payment in lieu of tax
funds offset the loss of tax rev-
enue when the district purchases
property for flood control, water


is construction and remodeling.
"These people come to the
community to help indigent peo-
ple, people who cannot afford to
have work done on their houses.
They come in and do it for free,"
Andrews said. According to the
applicant, the campground will
serve church proposes only and
would not be open to the public.
A church representative told
the comrmnission that the RV pads
would be installed behind the
church and would not be visible
from the highway. No more than
four or five pads are planned.
The zoning director said the
rezoning, which the commis-
sion voted 5-0 to support, was a
first step. The county commis-
sion will also have to consider a
special exception application in
order for the RV campground to
be permitted. That application is
expected to go before the com-
mission next month.

The parcels comprise
nearly 24 acres off of
Southeast S.R. 21 both
behind Keystone Methodist
and between the church
and a neighboring
Lutheran church.


quality, water supply and natural
resource protection. The district
will pay funds to counties until
their populations reach 150,000.
The funding comes from the
legislature, enabling the. district
to make payments to its rural
counties.
"The district is grateful to our
legislative' delegation for their
support in securing the funding
that allows us to distribute the
checks to our communities," said
District Executive Director Ann
Shortelle:
The following are totals that
each county is scheduled to re-
ceive:
Bradford: $15,416.77
Columbia: $40,100.89
Dixie: $21,647.39
Gilchrist: $44,392.72
Hamilton: $37,752.42

Levy: $30,401.84
Madison: $20,464.85
Suwannee: $30.429.59.
Taylor: $1'8.967.43
District staff will distribute
payments to the county commis-
sions through November.

Team Hailey, family get plenty of support in dealing with CF


.BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Two years ago, she had the
biggest team walking on her
behalf. This year, her team has
a sponsor--Community State
Bank of Starke.
There has been no lack of
support for 3-year-old Hailey
Starling of Hampton at the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great
Strides of Bradford County, and
that support exists outside of
the annual fundraising event as
well.
For parents Megan and Justin
Starling, it was surely shocking


to discover their child has cystic
fibrosis, yet Megan Starling said
she and her husband have never
been alone in the aftermath of
that diagnosis.
"We both have very close


l:amiliis.." Starling said. "There
were always people there. I
have never been to a doctor's
appointment with (Hailey) by
myself."
Starling said either her


brother, mother or grandmother
accompanies her and Hailey to
Nemouis Children's Clinic in
Jacksonville every three months,
which has been a great help in
processing any new information


delil\led by doctors..
"I don'i know if I could've
done. it by myself," Starling
said.
Hailey was born five weeks
prior to her due date and was


diagnosed with cystic fibrosis
shortly afterward. Starling said
she had no idea what' cystic
fibrosis was, admitting she was

"freaking out" after hearing the
news.
Starling found, out that cystic.
fibrosis is considered a lung
disease,though she said it's better
classified as an "everything"
disease. In fact, there's so much
toilearning about cystic fibrosis
thit medical professionals didn't
evnn trn to tell Starling all there
was to know about.it.
,'They told me, 'Well, we
ca~'t tell 3ou e\ ervthing in one
trip because it's just so much to
know.' They gave me all kinds
of;books," Starling said. "I still
learn new.stuff three years later.
Tfere's just so much to CF. It's a
lot to take in."
;Cystic fibrosis is.catlsed by
a defective gene, wlich in turn
causes the body to produce thick
mucus that clogs the lungs,'
obstructs.'the. pancreas and
parents natural enzymes from
helping the..,body break down
arid absorb food.
rThe Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation posts the following
statistics on its website:
'* Approximately .30,000
children and adulls'in the LI.S.
Have cystic fibrosis.
An additional 10 million
Jeople-or one in every 31
Americans-are carriers of the
defective gene, but do not have
the disease.
iStarling said she and her
husband discovered they were
both carriers of the defective
gene, even though-as far as
they could determine-no one
ili their families has had the
disease.
SHailey takes enzymes, with
q ery meal to help her digest
lifr food; There.was a time when
-iailey was not gaining weight,
6ut that changed once she
began taking the enzymes. Plus,
hee also consumes PediaSure
s0tritional shakes.
; "She keeps her weight pretty
Vell," Starling said.
SHailey uses a nebulizer
daily so as to have medication
Administered directly into her
(tings. She also uses a high-
frequency chest wall oscillation
,est to help. clear lung's air
passages. The vest is connected
to an air compressor, which
inflates and deflates the vest.
(hat creates pressure and
vibrations on the chest, which in
turn help break up mucus.
SHailey uses the vest and the
hebulizer daily, and seemspretty
comfortable with the routine.
S"The only times she gives me *
problems is when she's busy and
jioing something," Starling said.
!She doesn't want to stop what
she's doing to do what I want
her to do."
SIt's not much of an issue,
however, in that this is vhat
Bailey is used to. Because
she was diagnosed with cystic
fibrosis at 3 months of age,..she
has not known a life without a
iebuliztr, oscillating vest or
enzyme supplements.-
In fact, Hailey doesn't see
other children and wonder why
she's not like them. She sees
other children and wonders why
they aren't like her.
S"For her, it's not any different
Than what she's, ever had,"
"Starling said. "It's her normal

Aside from the trips to
Nemours for throat-culture tests,
;Hailey is doing quite well for
:someone with cystic fibrosis.
*Starling said that is one reason-
along with'the advances made in

shortly after birth, so she accepts the daily breathing
treatments, enzyme supplements, etc., as just a
normal part of life.


medication-doctors are hesitant
to make many predictions
concerning Hailey's future and
how the disease will affect her.
"They kind of take it just a
little piece at a time because
she surprises them so much,"
Starling said. "There have been
times when they really felt we
should redo the (cystic fibrosis)
test because she has just been so
healthy." .
There has been only one scare,
really, in regard to 1Hailey's
health, and that occurred when
she was less than a year old.
A medication that was part of
Hailey's breathing treatments
with the nebulizer wasn't
working as well as it should'
have.
"At that age, she didn't really
know what to do with the mucus
that was coming up," Starling
said. "She started choking.",


Now, the only thing that seems
to crop up is coughing whenever
Hailey is running around and
active. That, though, is a good
thing, according to doctors,
since the coughing is breaking
up the mucus that builds up in
her lungs.
Another good thing, if you
ask Starling, is the annual Great
Strides of Bradford County.
Proceeds from that event and
others help fund research
in creating medications that
will benefit those with cystic
fibrosis.
Someone as young as Hailey
can take advantage of such
medication breakthroughs that
occur, whereas someone like
Katelyn Sims, the 21-year-
old Lawtey native who helped
start the Great Strides event
in' Bradford County, may not
necessarily benefit. That's why

Starling said she broke down in
tears when she talked to Sims at
a Great Strides meeting earlier,
this year.
"That's why (Sims) tells me
all the time Hailey is one of the
reasons she does what she does,"
Starling said. "Katelyn knows
that she can't save herself, but
she's trying. to save kids like
(Hailey).
"She gives my whole.family
just so much hope because, no
one in my family really knows
what's going to happen in
the year to come, how things
are going to work and what
(Hailey)'s going to be able to
do. To see what Katelyn's been
able to do with the little bit of
lung function she even has-she
gives my whole family hope."

debate teams in college.
Students at Bradford High

something in common with those
individuals with the creation of a
debate team this year.
Debate is a wonderful way for
students in Bradford County to

lead to scholarship opportunities,,
not only for bachelor's degrees,
but for pre-law and pre-medical


degrees as well. Colleges and

Debate competitions are
more than just arguing on
major issues facing the nation.
They also incorporate dramatic
performance. Students can select
from a wide variety of options.
Of course, there are events that
follow the courtroom-style
argument where one side-the
prosecution-puts forth its
case, while the other side-the
defense-tries to negate it, but

BHS biotech: labs, fun and prep fir life after high school


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Words like macromoleculess"
and "polymerization" may be a
mouthful, but are they easier to
swallow when they taste like
candy canes and gingerbread
houses?
The answer is "yes" if you
ask the Bradford High School
students who took the school's
ney biotechnology class last
year. Maybe it comes as no
surprise when teenagers say
one of their most memorable
laboratory experiments was
making candy canes and
gingerbread houses as a way of'
understanding macromolecules,
which are composed of smaller
molecules linked together.
ftl l j 'E1.'.* > ~


Scotty Peirce, Who is enrolled
in Biotechnology II this year,
said making the goodies was the
most fun lab in Biotechnology I
last year. Fellow Biotechnology
II student Thomas Parker said
the same, but, in reference to
his candy canes, added, "I don't
.think mine turned out too well
the first time."
Biotechnology II student
Geana Kersey said her candy
canes didn't quite pan out, but
they were still edible.
"What happened was I had
too much heat, so it browned
and turned into caramel instead
of a candy cane," Kersey said.
The experiment is a good
example of how to mix fun with

learning.
"I think a lot of people, when
they think of teaching this class,
they think it has to be really
complex," BHS science teacher
Donely Santiago said, "but if
you teach it with interest, the
complex can be very easy to
learn or understand'."
Santiago taught nine students
last year in the school's inaugural
Biotechnology I class. This year,
seven of those students are taking
the new Biotechnology II class,
while 13 students are enrolled
in this year's Biotechnology I
class.
The classes, which are
electives, give students a fair
amount of freedom when it comes
to assignments. Santiago said
she gives students parameters
to work within, but how they
approach an assignment is up to
them.
"They have to formulate some
of their own ideas because in
the real world-when they get a
job-if they're given a problem,
they're going to have to figure it
out," Santiago said.
With freedom comes
responsibility, as you would
imagine in a classroom setting.
"They clean all the equipment
just like they would in a real
lab, and they have to prepare
the media that's used for the
classes," Santiago said.
Biotechnology, in its
simplest definition, is the use
of microorganisms or biological
substances to manufacture
products, such as drugs, 'or
enhance existing products
or processes. The classes at
BHS incorporate several types
of science, which surprised
some of the students who took
Biotechnology I last year.


Open wide and
say, "Ahhh."
Actually,
Thomas Hales
is swabbing the
inside of Lenora
Covington's
mouth as
part of a lab
assignment
in Bradford
High School's
Biotechnology I
class.


"I was expecting it to be just
biological," Peirce said, "but it
ended up being about a broader
spectrum of science. We ended
up learning about chemistry,
biochemistry and regular
biology. We even learned some
physics in there."
Student Logan Kent said, "It
was a lot more than I thought it
was going to be."
That broad spectrum is an
appeal to some of the students.
"It's always something new,"
Kersey said. "It's actually really
nice. 1 actually Id8k forward to
this class."
Santiago said the
biotechnology classes also allow
students to'learn more in certain
areas of science than they would
in other classes.
"When you're in biology,
you can't cover the whole


immune system," Santiago said.
"You don't have time. Here,
for this class, we can cover the
whole immune system. We can
talk about it. We can look at
diseases.
"It just allows more
opportunities to really get in
depth with content that maybe
they would study at an upper-
level facility." '
The number of lab
experiments students get to
take part in is another exciting
aspect of the program, Santiago
said. In fact, classes take trips
to Santa Fe College and the
University of Florida to carry
out lab assignments that require
materials BHS doesn't have.
The lab assignments don't all
result in edible treats, but the
students seem to enjoy them
nonetheless, Kent and Peirce,

for example, liked the lab where
students contaminated each
other.
OK, that's not quite t ue.
The students, using pipettes,
transferred antibodies in
an exercise designed to
hypothetically show how
Hepatitis B can spread from
person to person,Santiago said.
Students also participate in
discussions on bioethics-such
as the debate between a person's
quality of life and the cost of the
prostate cancer drug Provenge-
as well as participate in real-life
scenarios. One scenario, for
example, had students acting
as the managers of theJ ,own
biotech companies. Students
were asked to create fliers that
promoted safety within their

and, as Santiago said, she sets
herself up for an opportunity
to work in a lab while going to
college.
"It's really a good class to
take," Kersey said.
Peirce said, "I definitely
recommend it to anybody who
loves science and just wants to
learn how to run a business."
The students are doing more
than paying lip service to the
program. Last year, they took
an active role in helping eighth-
graders become interested in
taking biotechnology when
they get to BHS. The high
school students took part in
a recruitment fair, working
with eighth-graders on such
projects as DNA fingerprinting
and building models of water
molecules and DNA structures,
utilizing such building materials
as Play-Doh and Spice Drops
candy.
Santiago said she plans to
have her students do another
such fair.
"We had a great time," she
said. "We had a lot of fun."
Santiago encourages anyone in
the community who is interested
in supporting the program to do-
so. Community members are
welcome to become part of the
program's advisory committee
or volunteer their time to help
with class activities. People

Anyone who would be willing
to help sponsor field trips would
be appreciated as well, Santiago
said. She would like for her
students to be able to take a
trip to the Keys and participate
in snorkeling and specimen-
sampling opportunities through
the Harbor Research Center.
"It'd be great," Santiago said.
"To me, it would be a wonderful

Tigers outlast Chiefland for 12-6 win in district opener


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.corn Editor
Chandler, Mann threw a 22-
yard touchdown pass to Dylan
Clark with 3:51 left, in the game
to put Union County (4-0, 1-0 in
District 7-IA) ahead and propel
the Tigers to a 12-6 win over
visiting Chiefland (3-1,0-1) on
Sept. 21.
The Indians justified their 3-0
record coming into the game by
torching the Union County de-
fenge for 141 rushing yards in
the first half, most of that on the
legs ofAlphonso Timmons. The
sophomore totaled 168 yards for
the game on 19 carries and one
touchdown. Timmons scored
-on a 13-yard run with 7:10 re-
maining in the game to tie the
score at six all.
The teams went into half-
time with a scoreless tie. Union
County coach Ronny Pruitt
blamed his offense's first
half performance on himself.
"The first half is my fault," he


said after the game. "I tried do-
ing a couple of things to get po-
sition. It didn't work so we came
back to what we do regularly. We
ran three different packages and
the one that worked the most is
the one we worked on from day
one. That (the first half) was
me trying to get a little bit out of
the box. Didn't work."
The Tiger defense also re-
covered from tough first half,
giving up only 74 yards in he
game's final two quarters, cut-
ting Chiefland's first half offen-
sive production in half.
The package Union County's
offense found success with in
the second half featured the run-
ning of Daquin Edwards.' After
touching the ball five times in
the first half for 34 yards, the
6' ", 215-pound junior carried
12 times in the second half for


60 yards, leading the Tigers
with 94 yards on 17 carries and
one touchdown. His three-yard
plunge with 4:36 remaining in
the third quarter gave the Tigers
a 6-0 lead.
That score was on the end of a
15-play drive. Chiefland helped
the Tiger cause by jumping off-
side twice in the march that con-
sumed 7:24 of the third quarter.
Prince Alexander added 38
yards on eight rushes and Walter
Mabrey rushed for 25 yards.on
seven carries.
Pruitt said that unlike last
week's close game in Keystone,
his crew stuck together when
facing adversity.
"Last week we unrav-
eled among ourselves," he
said. "This week that didn't hap-
pen. They stuck in there. They
had faith in each other. That


Quarterback Chandler Mann and lineman Dustin Griffls
are pictured in the Sept. 14 game against Keystone.
Mann threw a late touchdown pass to lift the Tigers to
a 12-6 win over Chlefland on Sept. 21.

Indians weather delay, shut out Interlachen in distri


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Five different players scored
touchdowns, while the defense
gave up less than 30 yards and
came away with seven turnovers
in the Keystone Heights football
team's 34-0 win over District
4-4A opponent Interlachen on
Sept. 21 in Interlachen.
With starting quarterback
Blake Valenzuela sitting out
with a concussion and a steady
rain falling throughout most of
the game, which was delayed
approximately an hour because
of lightning, the Indians (3-1,
1-0 in District 4) were content
tod rely almost solely on their
run game. They rushed for 323
yards and got a team-high 113
yards from Alex Gonzales, who
sat out the second half due to a
nagging hip injury.
Sam Anderson rushed for 84
yards in a second half that saw
Keystone outgain Interlachen
179 to 7.
"I wanted to keep the clock
running, grind it out and get
(Interlachen) tired," Keystone
head coach Chuck Dickinson
said. 'I think in the second half
we wore them down."
S The Rams (1-3, 0-1) finished
the game with 24 yards and


committed five second-half
turnovers, four of which were
interceptions. Brighton Gibbs
had two picks in the third quarter
and almost had .a third in the
fourth quarter.
"Once,we got up three scores,
I told the kids they were going
to start throwing it deep,"'
Dickinson said,
Linebacker John Brown, who
had an interception and a fumble
recovery, set up the Indians'
first score in the first quarter
when he fell on a loose ball at
the Interlachen 22-yard line.
Gonzales promptly ran through
defenders for a 12-yard gain to
the 10.A holding penalty backed
the Indians.up to the 20, but a
subsequent pass interference
penalty moved them back to
the 10. Fullback Chris Gillen
bulled his way up the middle for
a touchdown from there, with
Logan Stanley adding the PAT
for a 7-0 lead with 2:31 left in
the opening quarter.
Defensive lineman Nate
Smith recovered an Interlachen
fumble on the ensuing series,
giving Keystone the ball at
the Interlachen 9. The Indians
squandered the opportunity,
though, missing a 21-yard field
goal.


Three Keystone defenders disrupt a pass play that
eventually resulted in an interception by Brighton
Gibbs. Pictured (I-r) are John Brown, Gibbs and Logan
Stanley.


Keystone added to its lead in
with a seven-play, 49-yard drive
that concluded with Gonzales'


14-yard touchdown run at the
7:02 mark of the second quarter.
Gonzales carried the ball. on


every play but one as the Indians
went up 13-0.
Defensively, the Indians
recorded five tackles behind
the line of scrimmage in the
first half, holding the Rams to
9 rushing yards on 10 carries.
Things did not improve for
Interlachen through the air, as
the Rams' opening possession
of the second half resulted in
the first of Gibbs' interceptions.
That led to a 42-yard touchdown
drive in which'Michael Carroll
broke free along the sideline
for a 33-yard score, putting the
Indians up 19-0.
Interlachen's next possession
ended the same way as its last,
with Gibbs intercepting a tipped
pass to give Keystone a first
down at its own 47,
Keystone did not score, but a
punt. put the Rams at their own
7-yard line. A holding penalty in
the end zone resulted in a safety
for Keystone and a 21-0 lead
with 21 seconds left in the third
quarter.
The Rams' third lost fumble
of the game set Anderson for a
19-yard touchdown run in the
early stages of the final quarter.
Stanley's PAT' made the score
28-0.
Keystone fumbled the ball


ct opener

away on its next two possessions -
before adding the final score of
the game, which was set up by::;.
a Stanley interception. Nitholas
Zagami, who is normally a wide
receiver, lined up in the backfield
and carried the ball four straight:
times, with the fourth carry a"
26-yard touchdown run with 12-
- seconds remaining.
Zagami finished the game.
with 41 yards on seven carries.
while Carroll had 47 yards.on-12
carries.
Dickinson admitted he was
concerned about how his teamri
would respond to a tough loss to.,
Union County the week before-
and then having to sit through ;.
lightning delay. He thought the
players responded well despitei,.
a bit of a slow start as the-
offense struggled on its first two.:
possessions. ,-
"I thought we could be flat,-'
but I don't think, really, we:
played flat," Dickinson said. "I:'
thought Interlachen came out
and played hard the first half.
but they made some mistakes,
and we capitalized on them." -
The Indians will attempt to
improve to 2-0 in the distriet-
when they travel to play Weeli
