Bradford coach convicted for manslaughter


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


Benjamin Gerard Hawkins, a former
coach and teacher at Bradford High
School, is guilty of involuntary man-
slaughter, or so said a jury in Las Ve-
gas last week.
Hawkins said he was not guilty of
the charge, although it was not dis-
puted that his actions led to the death
of John Massie of Roy, Utah. Like
Hawkins, Massie was on vacation
when the two crossed paths in O'Sheas
Casino on July ,6, 2011. Words were
exchanged and a single punch was
thrown. Hawkins said he was defend-
ing himself. Massie didn't live to tell
his side of the story.
The circumstances drew national at-
tention to the case as did the fact that it
was one in a string of violent incidents
occurring on the Las Vegas Strip.
Hawkins is black and Massie was
white, and stories of what exactly
happened carried racial overtones.
Hawkins claimed Massie said some-
thing about him being a man wearing
a yellow shirt while the two were in a


A photo of Ben Hawkins from a
Facebook support page.


casino restroom. The defense attorney
characterized it as a racial insult. Mass-
ie's daughter took the stand to say that
her father was not racist, according to
an article in the Las Vegas Sun.


Witnesses in the restroom said
they heard Massie's comment about
Hawkins being a black man wearing a
yellow shirt, but described him as "jo-
vial" and a bit drunk. Hawkins, they
said, was upset by the comment, and
when Massie patted Hawkins on the
back and arm, he told Massie to get his
hands off of him. When Hawkins had
to repeat the request, he told Massie
he would knock him out if he didn't
remove his hands, according to the ar-
ticle.
The prosecution attacked conflicting
statements, including about whether
or not Massie placed his hands on
Hawkins in the bathroom (he had
previously told police Massie never
touched him), and also pointed out
that while the confrontation continued
outside the bathroom, Massie's arms
were down when Hawkins turned and
punched him.
What happened before the physical
attack, may not be clear, but what hap-
pened when the men left the restroom
was caught on the casino's surveil-
lance camera.
A KVUU news report showed the


footage that aired in the courtroom last
week. On the video, Hawkins walks
past Massie toward a game table with
his hands in his pockets, Massie took a
couple of steps toward him, approach-
ing from behind, and Hawkins spun
around and punched.Massie in the face.
The force of the hit was enough to
knock Massie to the floor and send him
sliding into a nearby counter. He never
got up, and was pronounced dead later
as Desert Springs Hospital.
An expert testified the cause of death
was blunt force trauma to the head due
to the fall, which was caused by the
physical altercation.
In his defense, Hawkins said he was
* not angry when he lashed out, but fear-
ful because he felt threatened. Among
the words supposedly exchanged on
the casino floor, Hawkins said Massie
told him, "I've got something for your
ass," and he believed Massie was go-
ing to hit him.
"The last thing I wanted to do was
harm anyone or even get into a fight. I
didn't want him to harm me," Hawkins
testified.

Brooker man

watches

burglary in

progress
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Monitor Editor
A Brooker-
area homeowner
helped Bradford
deputies catch a
burglar that had
broken into his
home on Nov.
29. The vic-.
tim witnessed
the crime while
watching the Futch
break-in on vid-
eo from his Jack-
sonville workplace.
Deputies charged Charles Arthur
Futch, 28, of Brooker with criminal
mischief with property damage, lar-
ceny, burglary and violating proba-
tion.
According to Sheriff Gordon
Smith, the homeowner, who had
been a previous burglary victim,
configured an old laptop with a
webcam and motion detector within
his residence. He also downloaded a
program that sent a message to his
phone when the motion detector was
activated and used another program
that kept the laptop's screen dark,
even when the computer was run-
ning.
At 9:27 a.m. a dispatcher sent
deputies to a burglary in process off
C.R. 235 near New River, telling
them the victim was watching the
break-in on video. Deputy Joseph
Shiller was first on scene and saw
Futch walking from the victim's
house across a field in the direction
of another residence. When the dep-
uty stopped the man, Futch said he
was looking for a lost dog.
Smith said Futch saw Shiller ap-
proaching the house from a long
driveway and had to cut short the
burglary. The sheriff added that
once he and deputies told Futch they
had video of the crime, the man con-
fessed to the break-in.
The homeowner told deputies that
he had also set up a deer camera
outside the home. When deputies
viewed video from the second de-
vice, they saw Futch exit the house,
dig a hole in the backyard, drop
some jewelry into the hole and cov-
er over the spoils before proceeding
into the field.
Smith' applauded the homeown-
er's ingenuity and said the case was
an example of utilizing technology
to fight crime.

For the second year in a row, Brad-
ford High School has improved its
graduation rate.
After falling hard in 2010, Brad-
ford's graduation rate was 64.2 per-


cent according to the numbers posted
by the state last week.
The number appears lower, than
percentages reported in the past, but
the U.S. Department of Education
now requires states to use the same
calculation method in order to pro-
duce results that are comparable from


state to state. The federal calculation
rate only includes students who re-
ceive standard diplomas, and past cal-
culations have been adjusted for the
sake of comparison..

All I want for Christmas is


. ..


BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN
Special to the Telegraph

Spectators at Starke's annual
Christmas parade had a variety
of Christmas wishes, but no one
questioned was hoping for two
front teeth. Most of the children
had a special gift in mind for
themselves, but adults' wishes
were more focused on others,
with good health topping the list.
Melanie Elixson, age 3, said
she would like Santa to bring her
a baby doll. Her friend Braden
Land, also 3, was more generic,
' hoping for "toys." Kahliah Rob-
inson, age 5, wants a Spiderman
toy, while big sister Shadera
would like a new cell phone,
maybe an iPhone 5.
Rhonda Parrott, who watched
the parade with her mother,
Elaine Griffis, and good friend
Brenda Adkins said she'd like
her eldest child to find employ-
ment. Griffis said she hopes for
continued good health, and for
God to bless our nation. Adkins
wants to remain close to all her
family and friends at church, and
is wishing that all have a good
Christmas.
Al Zuluaga, proprietor of
Mama Mia's Italian Restaurant,
wants good health for daughter
Valeria, who had surgery earlier
this year and is doing very well.
Gary Hardesty, who enjoyed
dinner with his wife, Karen, at
Mama Mia's while watching the
parade, made a wish befitting his
status as a Presbyterian minister,
for peace on earth. Karen Hard-
esty hopes for good health for her
mother, who lives in Chicago.


Whatever Santa leaves under
your tree, have a wonderful and


Al Zuluaga


safe holiday!

Mold drives paramedics from station

County also facing costly roof repairs


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Count\ employees have been
mo\ ed out of the 24-hour emer-
:gency medical services station
located behind the Bradford
Courthouse in Starke over fears
mold has once again taken -hold
in the.building.
EMS Director Allen Parrish
said the realization actually came
out of a roofing project taking
place at the courthouse. Parrish
said that since some environ-
rmental tests were already being
conducted in the courthouse,
they decided to test the EMS sta-
tion as well because of ongoing
humidity issues.
Air samples revealed the pres-
ence of mold spores when the
preliminary test results were re-
turned Nov. 27. Consulting with
County Manager Brad Carter,
the decision was made to tempo-
rarily relocate operations to the
:Bradford County Senior Center,
just up the road in front of the
health department.
"Even though we don't know
-what the counts are, there's defi-
hitely black mold there, and since
wve sleep there, eat there, we just
!decided to go ahead and move,"
Parrish said.
.He said bedding, other fur-
niture and clothing would be
moved to the senior center once
it had been declared mold free.


Parrish'saw that happening by
Tuesday night at tha.latest. In the
meantime, on-duty employees
were staying at a local hotel.
Parrish said in spite of the
shakeup, there has been no inter-
ruption of service, and programs
at the senior center will take
place according to schedule.

"We want people
to know that the
service isn't going to
be delayed and our
employees are being
taken care of."
-Allen Parrish


More work will take place to
determine the origins of the mold
spores and decide what mitiga-
tion needs to take place. The
process could take some time,
according to Parrish, who talked
about the walls and ceiling, being
removed.
The building has a history
of mold problems. Parrish said
employees had to be moved out
around a decade ago, long before'
he came to work for the county.
"My understanding is they've
had this issue before, and if it's
back again, clearly there's a
problem," he said.
Out of an abundance of cau-


tion, the safety complex housing
the sheriff's office and jail were
also tested since the buildings
were completed by the same con-
tractor during the same period of
time. There has been no indica-
tion of problems there.
The county will be drawing
on the expertise of the architect
working on the courthouse re-
roofing project to determine if
there is an issue with the EMS
building's design, climate con-
trol, etc.
"We don't want to have to do
this again," Parrish said.
Architect Robert Taylor from
-Palatka discussed the scope of
the courthouse roofing problem
with the county commission on
Nov. 5. Both the north and south
additions, each approximately
8,700 square feet in size, need to
be reroofed.
Faults in the construction of
the roofs primarily relating to the
puncturing or incorrect instal-
lation of flashing allowed water
to penetrate and cause damage.
It was less than nine years ago
that that the opening of the new
wings was celebrated. The re-
placement roof will last 20 years
or more, according to Taylor.
It will come at quite a cost,
however. The preliminary esti-
mate is $230,000. County Clerk
Ray Norman said some money
was included in the 2013 budget
in anticipation of the project.

fJ Q S


I'd like to know more about an
ornamental plant with purple foli-
age and small pink flowers that I've
heard called Wandering Jew. I'd like to grow
some in my yard, but I don'tynow how to start
it or take care of it. Also, I've noticed a plant
growing in a friend's yard that reminds me of
it, but the leaves are small and green and the
flowers are blue. Are these two plants related?
-.Jean Littleton,
Oneonta, Ala.
Wandering Jew, also known as purple heart or
purple queen, is a sprawling, evergreen ground
cover that produces deep'purple foliage and stems
W\he0n grown in full sun. The stems are brittle and
can grow to a foot or more in length. They have a
tendency to flop over, creating a trailing effect that
looks great in informal planting beds, rock gardens
or containers. This plant also cascades nicely over
retaining walls and does well in hanging baskets.
The plant flowers year-round, producing
one-inch pale-pink blossoms with three ,
petals each, which last only one morning.
Purple queen does best in part-shade,
part sun, and thrives in a wide variety of
soils. Frost may kill back the tops, but the
plants recover quickly in the spring. You
can set the plants on 12-inch centers for t U
quick cover. Water them well until they UFiF
are established. After that, you'll only IF

According to the Florida De-
partment of Education, the state's
federal graduation rate rose by
an unprecedented 3.9 percent-
age points in 2012, moving to
74.5 percent of students graduat- '
ing from high school within four
years. This is the largest single-
year increase the state has seen in
the federal graduation rate since
2003. The rate has climbed 18
percentage points overall since
then, according to DOE.
African-American students
showed the biggest increase over
the past five years, rising from
50 percent graduating in 2008 to
63.7 percent this year. Hispanic
students also performed at signif-
icantly higher levels, with 72.9
percent of students graduating in
20'12-"up T i 9:8' percent in


2008-an increase of more than
13 percentage points.
Beginning in 2011, federal
regulations required states to
calculate a four-year graduation
rate that includes only standard
diplomas. Previously, Florida's
official graduation rate included
both standard and special diplo-
ma recipients. Students who earn
a special diploma, a GED-based
diploma, a certificate of comple-
tion, or have been retained and
are still in school are not includ-
ed in the federal graduation rate.
The graduation rate measures
the percentage of students who
graduate within four years of
their first enrollment in ninth
grade. The rate is calculated for
an adjusted cohort of students,

Propagation of this .
plant is by stem cut- .
ting. I have a large .
stand of Purple queen
in my yard, and it has
been absolutely lovely .
this year. My mother .
and I set out unrooted
cuttings near our re-
taining wall at Kings-

child. The plants have Mary W. Bridgman
spread to other parts
of the yard, and I just started a new bed in anoth-
er area of the yard. I used transplants with roots
and also unrooted cuttings, covering the planting
lightly with pine straw to help retain moisture. I'm
curious to see how quickly it takes hold.
The other plant you mentioned probably is a
common weed known as spreading dayflower.
There is similar weed that has a violet/laven-
der flower rather than the blue one that is found
on many other dayflowers. It is known as Beng-
hal dayflower, and is an increasingly problematic
weed, particularly in nurseries. It's also known as
jio, tropical spiderwort, hairy wandering Jew and
Indian dayflower.

leaves with parallel veins and flower

native to Asia and tropical Africa. It was

NEWS FROM BRADFORD COUNTY, UNION COUNTY AND THE LAKE REGION



Agriculture, Cooperative Extension: still important today


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Has today's world transcended
the agricultural scope of land-
grant universities and the
Cooperative Extension Service?
The answer, as far as
Nick Place is concerned, is a
resounding "no." In fact, he
believes it is more important
now than ever for land-grant
universities and Extension to
play vital roles in today's world.
Place, who is the dean and
director of the University of
Florida/Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences Extension,
spoke at the Bradford County
Extension Office's annual Farm-
City Luncheon, which was held
Nov. 27 at the Bradford County'
Fairgrounds. He talked about the
150"' anniversary of the Morrill
Act, which created the land-
grant university system, and the
upcoming 100'h-yearanniversary
in 2014 of the Smith-Lever Act,
which gave the Cooperative
Extension Service its official
start, and how important the
ideas behind both are still
relevant today.
"To me, this is really our time
to step up and take a leadership

and director of UF/FAS
Extension, addresses

County's annual Farm-City
Luncheon.
role and make a tremendous
difference as e as we move ahead
into these forthcoming years,"


Place said.
For example, Place talked of
the burden that will be placed
on the world's food system-
everything from production to
consumption-in the future. The
world's population is expected
to increase from seven billion to
eight billion by 2030. By 2050,
it is anticipated the population
will reach nine billion-two
billion more people than the
current population of China.
"The challenge is, how do we
feed such a growing population?
In addition, keep in mind we
have issues with increasing
environmental pressure
and regulation on farmers,"
Place said. "We have climate
variability to deal with. We have
new, emerging pests that are
coming out.
"Another thing, to keep in
mind is, as people's incomes,
increase, their food choices
increase. We're starting to see
that now in China and India-as
more people are having higher
disposable incomes, their, food
choices are going up. They're
expecting more higher proteins
with dairy, meat and those kinds
of things, which is going to have


to be taken into consideration."
The key, Place said, is for
university and Extension
personnel to work together and
cooperate with other agencies
and organizations. He expressed
his confidence that UF/IFAS


can play an important ,role,
saying, "We have a great staff
and faculty across the state that
are very interested in working
collectively with people, to
engage them in the educational
process and those kinds of things


that would lead them to better
society."
Before talking about the
demand that will be placed upon
the food system in upcoming

Agriculture's role in American obesity


The following was a speech
presented at the Farm-City
luncheon in Bradford County
by Bradford FFA student-and

Sit's .the scent of the fresh, fried

yairs, Place talked about farmers
aiA the increased demand that
hgs-been placed upon them. First,
though, he dismissed what might
be ai common misconception.
"-At this current time, 98
percent of our American farms
are family farms, and only 2
percent are owned by non-
family corporations," Place said.
"We hear all the time about the
Sbg corporate farms and all of
that, but in actuality, most of our
farms are still family farms here
inf the U.S."
-Place said today, one farmer
produces food for 155 people in
tMe U.S. and abroad.
S"To put that in a little bit of
perspective, in 1960, one farmer
f1d 26 people," Place said.
"Ihf 1940, one farmer fed 19
people.."
t-Less than 2 percent of the
U;.S. population today farms,
Mlace said. That figure'was at 90
percent 200 years ago, he said.
'.'Today, there are just over
2o0 million farms in the United
States," Place said. "The number
of acres devoted to farming has
actually decreased by 110,000
from where it was in 2008. Right

continues to increase."
Place said it was also important
to point out that agriculture is still
the United State's number-one
export, generating $100 billion
annually, while providing jobs
for approximately one million
people.
However, as the demands
on individual farmers have
increased, the amount of money
they receive has decreased.
"Our farmers and ranchers in
the U.S. receive about 19 cents
out of every dollar that we in
the U.S. spend on what we eat


question at hand is, what role,
if any, does agriculture play in
the obesity rates in America,
and is the field of agriculture
addressing America's obesity?
Not only does agriculture play a
role in America's obesity, it has
leading a role.
According t6 David Wallinga,


at home and also away from
home," Place said. "Back in
1952, this was 46 cents out of
every dollar."
The money the farmer doesn't
see goes toward such things
as processing, packaging,
marketing, transportation and
distribution, Place said.
Place gave kudos, though, to
Bradford and.its people for their
efforts in supporting farmers.
"One o'f the things we're
doing, and that we're doing
fairly well here in Bradford
County, is we're working on
buying d rectly from farmers
at markets' and road stands, and
through community supported
agriculture," Place said.
It is in light of such data
concerning American farmers
that Farm-City celebrations
such as the one in Bradford
County-which also included
bringing every third-grader in
the county out the fairgrounds
to participate in agriculturally
themed exhibits-such a good
thing, Place said.


"I think .lebrations such
as this are critically important
for us to really step back and
have those kinds of times of
reflection," Place said.
And upon reflection, why does
Place think the American farmer
continues to exist and succeed?
From his perspective, which
includes having grown up on a
farm in Pennsylvania, Place said
it is because American farmers
are hard working, resourceful
and resilient.
"That is how they have made
such tremendous success over
all these years, how they've been
able to deal with fluctuations in
the weather, government policies
and all those other things," Place
said. "You have to be tough, you
have to be resilient and you have
to be entrepreneurial to make that
work. When I think about farm
people and farm stock, I would
always give a high quality rating
to those folks who have come up
through those ranks."

Beau Nistler, who

presents a
speech on the
anniversary of
the Morrill Act
at the Bradford
County Farm-City
Luncheon..


MD, director of the Food
and Health Program at the
Minneapolis-based Institute for
Agriculture and Trade Policy,
"U.S. agricultural policy hasn't
been based on health," and
Susan Dentzer states that we
have a U.S. agricultural policy
"that has spurred production
of cheap sugars and refined
grains, while doing little to
encourage production of fruit
and vegetables."
:Many professionals believe
that the past agricultural policies
and the current ones discourage
healthier eating habits, and jt is
not enough to provide nutritional
information. The My Plate
program, which was launched by
the USDA to replace the famous
food pyramid, is a good effort
to encourage smaller portions
of bad calories (sugary drinks
,and sodiums), an increase in
portions of good calories (fruits
and vegetables) and to balance
calories overall. But what good
is it to launch huge programs that
encourage a greater consumption
of fruits and vegetables when the
fresh fruit and vegetables that
are being recommended do not
fit into the budget of the average
American?
So, what could be done to

Special to the Telegraph-Times-
Monitor
I pledge my head to clearer
thinking, my heart to greater
loyalty, my hands to larger service
and my health to better living for
my club, my community, my
country and my world.
I bet many of you have heard
this before, but do you know
what it really means?
It all started with the passage
of the Morril Act in 1862. This
created land-grant colleges and
gave every state in America a
plot of land, which v"was to be
used for funding agricultural
research.They began researching
by developing new strains of
corn, better plows and other
innovations that would greatly


help the farmers be more efficient
in their agricultural ventures.
The researchers were very
excited about their findings and
tried to show the farmers, hut
they would almost always end
up talking to the farmers' wive
because they did not have much
creditability in the community.
So they decided to go to someone
in the community that they had
some creditability with-the
local school teachers. They
brought their new strains of corn
to the teachers and suggested that
their classes do a school garden.
At harvest time, they would hold
a contest with a prize to see who
had the best corn, and they also
would invite the farmers in the
community. This ended up being
the first county fair.
When it came time for the
contest, the classroom corn'
outperformed the farmers' corn.
When this happened, the farmers
wanted to know where the
kids got their corn seed. These

Questions
about grants

need to be

asked

Dear Editor:
To start, I'd like to offer my
apologies to anyone that may have
took offense to my article this
past year regarding the volunteer
fire departments in the county. I
may have given the impression
tliat I was attacking them on a
personal and professional level,
and that I'm not supportive of
them. That is not. true at all.
My belief is that their budgets
should be doubled, if not tripled,
and yes, I would be all for a
fire assessment. Residents and
visitors will benefit from this.
I know a great many of the
volunteers personally and have
assisted them with things such
as donations of surplus fire
equipment, and even loaning my
bulldozer to level the site where
the Sampson City VFD building
now stands, so I feel I have a"
vested interest.
This is a group of men
and women (all county
volunteers) who want to help
their communities without
compensation. The least we
can do-we being the citizens,
elected officials, managers and
"department heads-is treat them
fair and equal across the board.
That's true for any employee in
this county. But that element of
fairness and equality does not
exist. How so, you might ask?
Follow along....
Quite a bit of money has been
spent on the fire service in the
county in the last year and a half,
ranging from protective clothing
to tools and equipment, to, lastly,
fireapparatus. Most of these items
are needed, and the vehicle fleet
needs an upgrade like nobody's
business. But as wfth anything,
it can get expensive in a hurry
if you aren't careful about what
you buy and who you buy from.
But who is getting what?
Last Nov. 17, 2011, a
workshop (if that's what you
want to call it) was held, and I
brought up certain points as to
where money was being spent
and for what. One point was a
four-year-old, medium-duty qpb'
and chassis that was to be made
into a brush truck for Heilbronn
Springs VFD, bought for $20,000
from PRIDE. Never mind they
already have a brush truck. This
vehicle was protested for many
reasons by several members,
the main being is what it would
be used for. There are four
state agencies and three. federal
agencies in Florida responsible
for wildland firefighting and land
management, and none of them
use a vehicle like this, except
the National Park Service in the
Everglades. It's too wide, too
tall, too heavy and too expensive.
This play toy cost an additional
$28,000 to outfit, and they went
over budget on that, although
they haven't said how much.
Another point was the lack of
restroom facilities at the Sampson
City VFD. To date, over a year
later, they still don't have men's
and women's restrooms.
The county fire chief/
coo rdinator/emergency
management director stated
during that workshop he "couldn't
put all his moiley in one station."
Really? So where is the funding
being spent? On Feb. 6, 2012,
he requested to have the septic
system at Heilbronn Springs
VFD repaired at a cost of no
more than $5,000, but Sampson


City still has no restroom.
Grant money.... some may
think, "Oh goody, free money"
We all know it's not. That's
taxpayer money, no matter
how you look at it. So how do
you get it? The process goes
something like this... Assistance
to Firefighter grants are applied
for during a certain- period of
each year, usually in the spring
and summer, for operations and
safety and vehicle acquisition-
usually about three weeks long.
The cost match is determined by
population:
20,000 or below, 5 percent;
20,001 to 50,000, 10
percent;
over 50,001, 20 percent.
The applications are pre-scored
electronically, then sent to a peer
review panel, which is about
400 folks in a convention center
reviewing each application.
Grant money is drying up, down
over $60 million from last year.
Of the 16,491 applicants, as
of April 5, 2012, only 1,714
awards were given-just over
10 percent. It's like the lottery-
very few win. So how does one
beat the odds?
Since November 2008, eight
Assistance to Firefighter grants
have been awarded to VFDs
in the county. All but two have
had a cost match of 5 percent.
Reason being, population under
20,000 for those respective first-
due response areas. Another one
was a regional communications
grant that served the entire
county, including the city of
Starke fire department forl adios
and repeaters- 10-percent cost
match. Reason being, population
over 20,001. Now the other is a
head scratcher...
.On Feb. 17, 2012, Heilbronn
Springs VFD was awarded a
grant for $359,000 for a new
fire engine. Cost match to the
county...10 percent, or $35,900.
So why 10 percent? Does the
Heilbronn Springs VFD cover
a population of over 20,001 in
their first-due primary response
area? Not by a long shot.
Since the workshop last yearon
Nov. 17, $75,400 has been given
to HSVFD on top of the regular
operations of the station-fuel,
lights, insurance, etc.
Lawtey VFD recently got a
new fire engine, and the cost
match was 5 percent. Theressa
VFD recently was awarded a
grant for a new tanker truck.
The cost match was 5 percent.
Population 'i those respective
primary first-due response areas
is below 20,000. Was it because
of the type of vehicle? No. The
required cost share is based on
population. So how could this be?
Must be a simple explanation.
Here's how....the time period to
submit applications to FEMA for
Assistance to Firefighter grants
to be awarded in FY '12 was
Aug. 15, 2011, to Sept. 9, 2011.
They were awarded the, grant
Feb. 17,2012. Now here is where
it gets confusing...Aug. 15-
Sept. 9, 2011. Grant application
submission period Oct. 13,2011,
emergency management planner
requests to the board of county
commissioners permission to
apply for FEMA Assistance to
Firefighter grant for vehicles and
equipment, two fire engines for
New River VFD and Sampson
City VFD, and a water tanker for
Theressa VFD-no mention that
Heilbronn Springs had already
applied for a grant.
On Jan. 13, 2012, a grant
($350,000) was awarded to
Theressa VFD for a new tanker
truck.
On Jan. 19, 2012, the county
fi rechief/coordi nator/emergency
management director informs
the county that a grant has been
awarded for a new tanker truck
for Theressa VFD.
On March 5, 2012, the
county fire chief/ coordinator/
emergency management director
requests permission to accept a
grant award for Theressa VFD,


5-percent cost match, ($17,500).
No mention that Heilbronn
Springs VFD had also received
a grant award on Feb 17.
On May 17, 2012, Michael
Heeder, emergency management
planner, presents two Assistance
to Firefighter grants for
consideration: Heilbronn
Springs VFD, new pumper truck
($359,000m with a 10-percent
county match of $35,900);
Theressa VFD, new tanker
truck ($350,000 with a county
match of $17,500). Mr. Heeder
requested permission to move
forward with these grants. ?????
So why? Why would you
request permission to seek grant
funding, get it approved, receive
the grant and then go back
seven months later and request
permission again for the same
truck? (Theressa.)
Why would you seek
permission to seek grant funding
for a grant you had already
received three months prior and
never asked in the first place?
(Heilbronn Springs.)
Why the difference in cost
match? (Ten percent vs. 5
percent.) Do that math and
think how much more it cost the
taxpayers. Does anybody have
any idea what's going on down
there?
The county fire chief/
coordinator/emergency
management director admitted
to a journalist at this newspaper
that the population and call
volume were false when it was
submitted for Heilbronn Springs
VFD. There were also six other
"mistakes" on it. You don't get
awarded grants like this with
eight "mistakes." They used
the entire county population to
inflate their numbers, therefore
increasing their chances of being
awarded. This was more than an
oversight or an error. This was
a deliberate action to mislead
the federal government to gain
an advantage and get what they
wanted at any cost. They-went
for the gold, and they got it, but
at whose expense?
Some may say, "So what?
We got a nice play toy, and it
only cost-us $35,900 instead of
$17,950." That's. not the point.
Who knew about this? Who
allowed this to happen? Can it
happen again?
Where was the county fire
chief/coordinator/emergency
management director on this?
Did he know about this? And if
he didn't, why not?
How about the county finance
director and clerk? How did
this get by them? How about
the county manager? How did
this get by him? And last, but
not least, how about the board
of county commissioners? Were.
they duped? It's their own fault
if they were. That's what you
get when the only questions you
ask are, "Is it in your budget?"
rather than asking, "What do ypu
need that for?" There are several
questions surrounding this. One
would be, who wrote that grant
for Heilbronn Springs? I can
tell you it wasn't the employee
in emergency management who
wrote the others. He is very good
at it, and does an excellent job.
Why didn't they get him to write
it?
The truck itself is another
question. What justifies a VFD
that responds to just under two
calls per day buying a vehicle
that is tens of thousands of dollars
more than the average truck
purchased today? Is this money
that could be spent, maybe by
giving the county employees a
raise or bonus? By comparison,
Alachua County Fire Rescue
purchased a very nice fire engine
for $305,000 this past year. The
city of Gainesville purchased
a new fire engine for around
$327,000. These stations do
way more than two calls per day
and don't require a monstrous

OBESITY
Continued from 2B

lower the prices of the fresh
fruits and vegetables needed to
curve the American obesity rate?
Some experts recommend cutting
farm subsidies to commodity
farms, which -grow our "cheap
sugars" and "refined grains,"
including corn, soy beans and
wheat. This would give farmers
the incentives to grow fruits,
vegetables and healthier foods.
Some experts believe that
this will only be a "quick


fix," and result in the crash
of our agricultural industries,
skyrocketing in the prices df
every product that uses corn, soy
beans and wheat; and cutting the
subsidies could also lead to a
decrease in American farms.
Another suggestion would be
to import the fruif and-vegetables
needed to put America on a
healthier and more affordable
diet, but this has its cons too.
What if our supplier suddenly
stops supplying us with the crops
we are in need of? Would we
be putting our nation's security
at even more risk? And do we


really want to be dependent on
another country?
A larger supply of healthier
crops would be great and would
begin to cause the inverse of
the prices you currently see in
grocery stores and fast-food
restaurants. In the documentary
"Food, Inc.," directed by
Robert Keqner, he successfully
illustrates one of the main
problems with today's market.
The documentary shadows a
family of four as the parents
show how it is cheaper to feed
their family fatty, fast food
versus the healthy vegetables


and fruits which are simply out
of their budget even though it is
the best for them.
So, yes, agriculture does play
a role in America's obesity, but
it's not the role we should be
playing. We are now striving to
take a turn for the better. Farm-
to-Schools programs are popping
up all over the nation, and -even
the USDA Food and Nutrition
Service is offering grants to fund
even more programs.
Farm-to-School ,programs
are vital if we are looking to
turn our nation's obesity rate
around. Dr. Hugh Joseph, a


researcher at the Tufts Friedman
School of Nutrition, stated that,
"If you don't get them while
'they're in school, you've lost
them," according to 'takepart.
com/foodinc. Joseph's statement
shows that agriculture and
agricultural education, such as
food science, may not be the
solution to the problem, but it
will be the prevention.
In Bradford County, at the
local high school and Starke
Elementary, we have Farm-to-
School programs set up. This
program teaches the students
nutritional values of crops being


produced, proper portion sizes
and how to maintain and manage
these crops, and it also offers a
cheaper and healthier alternative
to the canned fruits and vegetables
used in most cafeterias.
America's obesity rate can
be halted. It just takes the
right agricultural policies and
agricultural education.

The story of the clover
One sunny June morning in a
one-room country school near
Clarion, Iowa, 11 pupils spent
their recess "outside searching
for four-leaf clovers. They
had plucked seven clovers
when a visitor drove up. Their
teacher recognized the guest
as Superintendent Benson. At
the teacher's suggestion, the
children surrendered their good-
luck charms and placed the
seven clovers into the hands of
Superintendent Benson. He said,
"I'm looking for an emblem
for the agricultural clubs and
the schools of the country, and
you have just given me that
emblem-the four-leaf clover;
it will help explain to young and
old the message of a four-square
education."
The first clover was created
and used on a pin in 1910 by
Jessie Field Shambaugh and
0. H. Brown; it consisted of a
three-lea4 clover with an H on
every leaf. The H-es stood for
head, heart and hands; head
for growing the mind, heart for
developing a better attitude and
for emotional development,
hands for developing skills and
performing service. It wasn't
until about five years later that.
the fourth H was added-'hustle,
which symbolized how the
4-H-ers would hustle around.
It was long after that, that it
was changed to health to better
represent the message of 4-H.
In 1914, with the passage of the
Smith-Lever Act, which created
the Cooperative Extension
Service and- agricultural
education, this 'also formalized
the bond between Extension and
4-H.The Smith-LeverAct created
Extension in all of the land-grant
colleges. Since those days, 4-H
has chI e3 eiy notably. In thb "
1960s, 4-H worked to combine
once separate boy and girl clubs,
and the racially segregated clubs,
to open it to all youth. Over
the years, 4-H expanded to fit
the needs and interests of the
4-H-ers. They added citizenship,
health, science, engineering
and technology programs and
projects.
4-H today reaches every county
in every state in America and all
of her territories. Over seven and
a half million youth participant
in 4-H each year. They engage
in traditional projects such as
livestock and other projects such
as robotics, marine science, and
rooftop gardening in the middle
of inner cities such as Chicago.
It's been 150 years since the
passage of the Morril Act. The
spirit and purpose of 4-H and
agriculture are as true now as
they were then. 4-H-ers still
pledge their head to clearer
thinking, their hearts to greater
.loyalty, their hands for larger
service and their health to better
living; to learn in their clubs, to
make a better impact on their
communities, our country and
our world.

Mother, son finally meet


50-plus years after birth


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regic-.i" . : El.ior
This past Thanksgiving.
Dotscy Gaffney and Don Drew
could give thanks to the courage
it took to make one phone call.
The phone call in question
was at that timer-June 2009-a
call between two strangers. That
call, though, has sparked one
call per week between mother


and son.
Gaffney, who lives in Grahamrn
with her husband, Irving, had to
give up a child she gave birth
to more than 50 years ago for
adoption. That child was Drew,
who sought his biological
mother and successfully reached
her when he was 51 years old.
Just like that, Drew's family
became a little larger.


"What's interesting now is i
am one of nine children," said
Drew, referring to Gaffney's
other children. "I've gotten to
know three of them fairly well
now considering we all live in
different parts of the country."
For Gaffney's part, she knew
she had another child out there
somewhere, but figured she
would never ever see him.


Dotsey Gaffney

pictured with
Don Drew
(center), the
son she gave
up for adoption
upon his birth
more than 50
years ago.

"I prayed all my life ever since
he was born that I'd someday
see him," she said, "but I just
figured I never would."
Gaffney was divorced with
three children and had planned
to remarry, but she said the man
she -was going to marry wound
up not being who she thought he
was, so she backed out. However,
she was pregnant. Another child
would add to the burden of trying
to raise her other three children
without any support whatsoever
from her first husband, though
he had been ordered to pay child
support.
"My mother was helping me
with my three young children
from my first marriage,"
Gaffney .said. "She said, 'Dot,
I can't help you anymore. You
can't keep that baby.'"
As it so happened, Gaffney
and her three children became
sick with pneumonia and wound
up in the hospital in Starke. A
doctor there became aware of
her situation and told her he
knew of a couple in Texas that
was looking to adopt. The doctor
assured Gaffney the child would
be going to a good home and be
well cared for.
"I really thought a lot of
(the doctor) and trusted him,"
Gaffney said. "I thought about
it for a few days while I was
in (the hospital). Before I left,
I said, 'It sounds like the best
thing because I don't want him
to go just anywhere.' That was
that."
Gaffney remembers when
she gave birth to Drew how she
overheard the doctor talking
to the adopting parents on the
phone and informing them that
Drew was a "9-pound, 2-ounce,
healthy boy."
The aftermath was difficult.
Gaffney remembered how Drew
was the only baby in the hospital
nursery, which was adjacent to


her room. She could hear the
baby crying during the night,
prompting a nurse to remark, "I
wish whoever's going to come
get this baby would come and
get him."
"I started crying, begging
(the nurse) to please bring him
to me," Gaffney said. "She
wouldn't do it."
When she was discharged
from the hospital, Gaffney was
driven by the doctor's \wife to
her home in Waldo. She said it
was the most miserable drive of
her entire life.
Then, approximately a week
later, Gaffney attended a sister's
wedding. There was an infant
in attendance, which only made
Gaffney think of the child she
had just given up.
"I cried the entire time,"
she said. "I made everybody
miserable."
Though she had her first
three children to care for and
then eventually more when she
remarried, Gaffhey never totally
forgot the child she gave up.
She said though she never let
on to anybody else, she always
remembered -Drew's birthday
when it came around.
Gaffney, though, never gave
thought to trying to find the
child.
"I gave him up," she said. "I
didn't have the right to look for
him. As much as I would have
loved to have seen him and
wanted to see him and know
what his life was like, I would
not."
Drew said it was curiosity
that propelled him to try to
find his biological mother. He
began looking at websites that
contained adoption notices
before coming across one that
left little doubt that it concerned
him.

"There were a few facts that
were wrong," Drew said, "but
too many that were right."
As it turned out, the
information had been posted
online by one of Gaffney's sisters
without Gaffney's knowledge.
"She asked me questions,"
Gaffnhey said. "I just thought she
wascurious about when (Drew
was) born and stuff. I didn't

"If things would've been bad,
I would've been disappointed,"
he said, "but I wasn't going to
beat myself up over it if things
didn't go well."
A phone call right off the bat,
though, was out of the question.
Drew said he wanted his initial
' contact to be subtle. He wrote
letters, but they were returned.
It turned out he didn't have
Gaffney's correct address.
"Finally, I decided I would
make one phone call," Drew
said.
Gaffney was away from home
at. the time of that call. She was
in Cape Cod for the wedding of
her son Andy. One of her sisters,
though, was at her home when
Drew called. He explained why
he was. calling. Gaffney then
received the information from
her sister.
"I called him right away,"
Gaffney said. "We talked for
a few minutes and knew right
away we were mother and son."

Approximately four months
later, Drew and his wife, Marcia,
flew to Florida to visit Gaffney
in person. Drew had no idea
Gaffney's daughters Anita and
Patty would be present, as well
as many more people.
"We had sort ofaThanksgiving
feast in October," he said. "We
had 30 people in. (Gaffney's
house) at one point. It was
insane, actually.
"By that point, I had a deer-
in-the-headlights look because
there were so many people
coming in."
Drew said he was "pleased and
exhausted" after the visit, which
covered a lot of history. Gaffney
told him about herself and her
family, while Drew filled in the
blanks as to what his life had
been like up to that point.
Gaffney said her daughters
Anita and Patty were probably
as excited as she was about
meeting Drew. Drew's wife said
by the endof their visit, the two
sisters seemed to readily accept

920 Pine St. in Starke.

event, which is offered as a way
of showing love for and giving

Drew as their brother.
"By the end of the weekend,
Patty looks to Don and goes,
'Well, you were spoiled growing
up.' They started the sibling
teasing," Marcia Drew said. "It
came very naturally."
Gaffney's first two children-
Sharon and Shirley-are
deceased. Her remaMing
children, besides Andy, Anita
and Patty are Michael, Angela
and Roy. They were unaware
they had another brother until
Drew and Gaffney talked.
"I never said anything because
I just figured they would never
see him, never know him,"
Gaffney said. "There was no
reason to tell them."
' Drew talked to Angela and
Roy-who is currently in
Afghanistan-on the phone for
the first time just recently. He
has talked on the phone with
Michael several times.
The newly discovered siblings
he has had the most interaction
with up to this point have been
Andy, Anita and Patty. In fact,
a trip Drew and his wife took
to Cape Cod resulted in a trip
to Paul's Pizza, a restaurant the
Gaffney family used to enjoy
going to.
"They wanted to share that
experience with Don," Marcia
Drew said. "They went outside
in front of the pizza place and
took a picture and sent it to Dot
and Irving."
Marcia Drew said at one point
during the trip,she thankedAndy
Gaffney for making her husband
feel welcome. His reply? "No
trouble. He's my brother."
Don Drew said he'd love to
have a good relationship with
all of Gaffney's children, but
said if any of them don't want to
necessarily be a part of his life,
that's fine.

you could say, was I'm open to
whatever," Drew said.
Gaffney said her husband,
Irving, thinks of Drew as one
of his own sons. Drew said of
Irving Gaffney, "He's the bonus
dad in the deal."
"Bonus" is a good way of
describing these newly created
relationships. Drew was not out
to find his biological mother or
siblings because he felt a need to
replace the family members he
grew up with. He stressed he had
good parents in John and Gerry
Drew-both of whom are 'now
deceased-as well as a good
upbringing.
When Drew was the age of 12,
his adoptive mother died from
cancer. His father later married
a woman named Lucy, who had
three children of her own. So
Drew went from being an only
child to having one brother and
two sisters, though two of Lucy's

children were grown and out on
their own.
Lucy, in fact, adopted Drew.
"I've been blessed," he said.
"I've had several different
moms."
Unfortunately, Lucy, jied
from cancer, too. Drew's father
married again, but at that point.
Drew was 18.
Still, it was yet another piece
added to Drew's life. That
experience has helped as Drew
has now met Gaffney and her
husband and children.
"For me, family has always
been much more fluid," Drew
said. "I've had new family pieces
join throughout my life."
There have been many pieces
added to Drew's life since he
contacted Gaffney. He said it's
still a challenge to keep up with
names and relations.
"It's been-ii wild ride in three
years," Drew said.

FinsFur & Tails

Crappie,
tournaments
and traveling
hunters
The cool weather this past
week seems to have activated
tha crappie bite somewhat. Joey
Tyson with Bald Eagle Bait and
Tackle in Keystone Heights
indicates that the catch from
Santa Fe, Magnolia and Lowery
has improved considerably.
Gary Simpson of the Tackle Box
in Gainesville indicates the same
is true for the red fish and trout
on the west coast. He also brags
about the size of the west coast
fish.
On Nov. 29, J.T. Prevatt,
fishing the north side of Kingsley
Lake, caught several small
crappie. While they were not of
keeper size and were released,
it does make the crappie bite
unanimous in all of our local
lakes. The crappie is the coldest
water lover of our locally sought
game fish. Since the shallow
lake water has cooled, they have
and will continue to move into
the shallower depths following

Lake Tournament big bass,

the baitfish and in preparation of
their early spring spawn.
Bassare notquiteas cold loving
as the crappie; consequently,
their spring spawn will shortly
follow the specks. So the crappie
activity that we are beginning to


-- 1


feel will continuously escalate
until it finally culminates with
their spawn in early spring. In
the early spring of 2013, when
the keeper crappie that are
cleaned begin to show signs
* of roe, you will know that the
speck activity will close shortly,
and you can then get ready for
the big bass that come on bed
right afterward. So, as this cycle
begins with the cooler weather, it
will also end in the early spring.

Many of our local fishermen
have refocused their attention
to hunting lately, and many of
the year-round fishermen are
moving their attention to the
speck bite. That does not mean,
however, that the bass will no
longer bite, and the Florida Bass
Network proved that this last
weekend. The network held its
second monthly tournament
at Kingsley Lake on Nov. 24.
C.K. Ryan and Mark Roberts
of Orange Park took the
comprehensive weight and the
big bass titles for the meet. Their
five savers totaled 12.09 pounds,
and the big bass weighted in at
4.69 pounds. They fished around
the grass line that circles the lake


in about 12-18 feet of \x ater and
were using soft plastics for bait.
Ryan did indicate that the heavy
patches of grass proved more
productive than the continuous
sections.
The Florida Bass Network
has a reliable and active
membership in northeast
Florida and fishes many "areas
near Bradford, Union and Clay
counties. Its remaining winter
series tournament schedule is
listed as f 11... .
Dec. 15-Sampson Lake;
Jan. 5- Salt Run;
Jan. 19-Welaka (Welaka
city ramp);
Feb. 2-Santa Fe Lake
(Little Lake ramp);
Feb. 16-Classic (TBD).
The tournaments are open
to the public, and, as per the
schedule, three are in our local
lakes. Directions for enrollment
can be found on the website
vwww.floridabass network.com.
(Mike Clements of Lake Butler
and John Mobley of Baker
County are active fishermen
with the organization.)
What is it really that makes so
many hunters want to travel so
far west and north to hunt deer?
Of course, the deer are bigger
there, and they have more points.
However, the lure of hunting
is the lure of hunting. Surely,
there is more to it. Maybe the
symbolism of the adventure is

like that of a vacation, where one
feels so relieved to drive away
from the stress and worry of
work and private life to the fun
and lure of a favorite activity.
Or perhaps it is the masculine
camaraderie.

hunter is always around
during Thanksgiving and
Christmas, and this year is no
exception. Butch Redding and

Indians earn
9-1 win in
boys' soccer

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Wyatt Graziano scored four
goals for the Keystone Heights
boys' soccer team, which needed
only one half of play to dispatch
of visiting Newberry by a score
of 9-1 on Dec. 3.
The Indians (8-0-1 prior to
Dec. 4) scored three goals in the
final two minutes of the first half
to enforce the mercy rule.
Graziano scored the first two
goals off of assists by Nacho
Grimaldo, who finished with
four assists overall. Graziano's
fourth goal was the last goal
of the match, coming off of a
Juan Grimaldo assist in the 40th
minute.
Juan Grimaldo finished with
two assists and had one goal.
Matt Crane, Craig Graff, Zac
Hawkins and Cory Hedding each
scored a goal. Graff, Graziano
and Zac Fairbanks each had one
assist.
Prior to playing Newberry, the
Indians hosted Interlachen on
Nov. 30, defeating the Rams 6-1
to improve to 4-0 against District
5-2A opponents .
Juan Grimaldo had four assists
in the win, while Hedding and
Logan Stanley scored two goals
each. Stihley's first goal, which
occurred in the 33rd minute, broke
a 1-all tie.
Fairbanks and Graziano each
scored a goal, with Graziano and
Stanley each recording an assist.
Goalie Eric Wood made seven
saves before dislocating his
shoulder while making a save
on an Interlachen penalty kick in
the 65"h minute. Stanley stepped
into the net in place of Wood and
made two saves to finish out the
match.
The Indians played Fernandina
Beach this past Tuesday and will
host district opponent Fort White
on Thursday, Dec. 6, at 5 p.m.
