Starke employees get raises


Ra/so includes
elected officias

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
-.-.. Telegraph Editor

The Starke City Commission has
approved a 1 percent pay raise for all
employees.
This includes general employees as
well as employees in the police and
fire departments and the elected offi-
cials themselves.
The raise is in lieu of a bonus, which
commissioners found they could not
approve during the holidays. The
commission has given small Christ-
mas bonuses in the past, but when the
amount being considered was around
$500, the city's auditors spoke up.
City attorney Terry Brown told
commissioners Feb. 5 how they can
go about awarding future bonuses
while complying with state law. The


bonuses must be awarded to employ-
ees who rank sufficiently on periodic
performance evaluations.
Commissioner Tommy Chastain
asked if the process could be put in
place by spring so a bonus could be
awarded at that.time in lieu of the
raise, which was the original intent.
Brown hesitated not on the time frame
for getting the measure in place, but
the requirement that employees be
given sufficient notice that their per-
formance could lead to the awarding
of a bonus.
"They require that there be an eval-
uation process. They require that the
bonus be awarded pursuant to that
evaluation, or that grade," Brown
said. "There's supposed to be dollar
amount for each employee's individ-
ual evaluation, and there's also a re-
quirement that employees need to be
put on notice in advance that there's
going to be an evaluation process and
that the money's going to be tied to
that."


Valentines, then and now


Recognize this happily married couple of 60 years? You can read
more about their love story in Regional News.


The law forbids citywide bonuses
like the ones given in the past. Brown
has drafted a resolution for the com-
mission to consider that implements
to process approved by the state.
"I think there was some hope. that
maybe just'by a. resolution-there
wouldn't be a great deal of formal-
ity-we could kind of do what we
wanted to do. But, unfortunately,
the state says 'no,' we've got to go
through these formalities," Brown
said.

Sheriff:

Woman

lied about

burglary,

stabbing

DAN HILDEBRAN
Monitor Editor


A Bradford County Sheriff's
Captain said the woman who claimed
she caught a burglar in her home and
was stabbed in the ensuing struggle
fabricated the tale to cover up an
accidental stabbing.
Deputies from Bradford and Clay
counties, in addition to tracking dogs
from Union Correctional Institution
and a helicopter from the St. Johns
County Sheriff's Office, searched the
woods at the county line near S.R.
16 on Jan. 30 after Ashleigh Elam
claimed she walked in on a burglar,
stabbed him in the chest with a
pocketknife, and was then wounded in
the thigh by the same weapon.
Capt. Brad Smith said during the
subsequent investigation Detective
Sgt. Kevin Mueller realized the
evidence was not matching the
information reported by Elam and her
roommate. He decided to interview
them again and present his concerns
about the story and contradicting
evidence. At that time, they admitted
to fabricating the story to cover up the
roommate accidentally stabbing the
alleged victim in the leg.
Smith said one key contradiction
was a lack of blobd on the scene.
Elam had claimed she stabbed the
perpetrator in the chest. Smith said the
two women stood by their stories until'
Mueller seized their cellphones and
threatened to get a court order to view
communications on the devices. The
. pair then confessed to the ruse.
Smith said the sheriff's office is
now in discussions with the agencies
that participated in the manhunt and
with the State Attorney's Office to
decide what if any criminal charges
will be placed on the alleged victim
and the roommate.


Camera costs questioned


Commissioners
disagree on putting
it on the ballot

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The Starke City Commission has
been warned that installing red light
cameras could actually cost the city
money-which again calls into ques-
tion whether the city will actually
move forward with the plan.
The police chief and commission
have always approached the issue
from a single perspective-that red
light cameras wouldn't cost the city
a dime. They believed everything,
including the acquisition, installation
and maintenance of cameras, would
come at no expense. The company
providing the cameras-American
Traffic Solutions-would make its
money by claiming a percentage of
the revenue from the citations issued.
, City attorney Terry Brown's most
recent review of the contract has
shown that is not the case-that tlhe
city could actually end up owing the
company money. Under the current
language, the company makes a guar-
anteed profit. That's fine if the cam-
eras are generating enough revenue
to cover the cost, but if revenue falls
short, the city would still have a debt
to pay.
Police Chief Jeff Johnson said
that is not how the contract the he
saw years ago read, but things have
changed since then. At that time, mu-
nicipalities were installing the cam-,


eras under local ordinances. Their
legality was a matter of debate. Since
then, the state has approved the use of
cameras, creating a system where it to
can skim some of the profit.
Johnson suspects that contract pro-
visions changed when questions of the
cameras legitimacy under state law
were settled. He has requested copies
of contracts from three other jurisdic-
tions that work with the company.
"I want to assure the city if they do
pass this that it doesn't cost the city
a dime," Johnson-said. "If we accom-
plish what we want to accomplish and
stop people from running red lights in
a year and a half, I want to make sure
the three-year contract doesn't cost us
any money."
But according to Brown, the pro-
posed contract has the city writing
American Traffic Solutions a check
for $45,000 in the first month alone,
regardless of how much revenue is
collected.
"I don't think that's in keeping with
what the commission anticipated," he
said, and Johnson agreed. "That's why
we want to see what these other towns
and cities are doing," said Brown.
Commissioner Tommy Chastain
said he has been torn over the issue of
red light cameras. After speaking to
a number of people, he could find no
consensus, he said. As many people
supported the idea as did not.
"When you go out and find that, it's
kind of difficult to vote yes or no,"
said Chastain, whose seat is up for re-
electionr) this year. "Why don't we just
put it on the ballot-we have a gen-
eral election coming up-and let the

Water solutions intended to help, not harm


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Al Canepa, assistant division
director for water resources at
the St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District, said the district
and those working with it are
looking for solutions that suit ev-
eryone as they work to preserve
water resources throughout the
region.
Canepa was asked about the
goals of a group working on
Keystone Heights lake level so-
lutions, a group that came under
fire for not including Bradford
County representation, even
though some of what is being
considered could impact Brad-
ford County.
Members of the Clay-Putnam
MFLs Prevention/Recovery
Strategy Implementation Work
Group have been at it for close
to two years, Canepa said. For
the first year and a half, it was a
technical working group, gath-
ering more than 40 proposals to
deal with lake levels.
Then it was a larger group that
included representation from
Bradford County, namely Paul
Still, who has openly questioned
some of that the St. Johns Water
Management District is doing, or
considering doing, to address the
lakes.
"Bradford County had repre-
sentation for the entire period
where we had the group identi-
fying potential options to help
solve the problem," Canepa said.
Santa Fe Lake Dwellers was
among the lake advocacy groups


represented, and Suwannee Riv-
er Water Management District,
which covers Bradford County,
has had a representative involved
throughout the process.
The point of trimming the
group as they moved into the im-
plementation stage was to create
a more efficient, decision-mak-
ing group, and Canepa said that
meant not having an unlimited
number of people involved.
"We looked for representa-
tives of all of the interests from
the larger group and distilled it
down into this smaller group. Ev-
erybody is represented, and just
because there may not be some-
one sitting on the group right
now who resides in Bradford or
any other county, doesn't mean
that their points of view don't
get involved," he said, pointing
to Still as a example of someone
who attends each meeting and
provides comments. "It's not
like people are ignoring Bradford
County or any other county."
With two water management
district involved, the strategies
the committee develops will con-
sider the needs of the entire re-
gion, Canepa said.
The plans explored by the
workgroup include everything
from increased conservation to
large recharge projects. Sifting
through those projects, they have
come up with a short list that the
committee feels hold the most
promise, Canepa said. Some are
near-term solutions, others long
term. Recommendations to wa-
ter management district staff will
come in the next month or two.
Among the projects under


consideration is running water
from as yet unknown sources
(but which could include treated
wastewater) through the old Du-
Pont mined area where it will be
"polished" of nutrients and other
constituents on its way to lakes
in Keystone as'well as the Santa
Fe Swamp in Bradford County.
"Remember, this is just one of
many things being considered.
Nobody has sat down and said
this is the best thing to do," said
Canepa, adding that Still seems
to be approaching it as a done
deal. "They're just concepts be-
ing discussed."
Still raised the specter of ad-
ditional flooding in the Theressa
area, but talk of benefits or con-
sequences could be premature.
Canepa said no detailed design
work has been performed on any
the options. If he and Still agree
on one thing it's this: "A lot of
questions need to be answered,"
said Canepa.
Another project that has con-
cerned Still and the county com-
mission is the consumption of
1.4 million gallons of water per
day from a well at Camp Bland-
ing. That water is not intended to
recharge any lake. It will allow
the district to study how the sys-
tem of streams and lakes works
as they watch what happens to
the water as it flows toward Key-
stone. Canepa said they need to
know how much evaporation
will take place, how much water
will make its way through the
lake chain and how much will
end up back in the aquifer.
The project received the nec-
essary permits, and obtaining


those permits required creating
models anticipating the impact
of the consumption. Canepa said
the model showed pumping that
amount of water form the lower
aquifer would cause the upper
aquifer (drinking water) to drop
around one inch in the vicinity
of the well. Outside of the vicin-
ity, the impact is small enough to
be unmeasurable. Drawdown in
the lower aquifer is around half
a foot in the vicinity of the well.
Again, that impact decreases
quickly further away from the
well, he said.
The duration of the permit is
one year, with the possibility of
a one-year extension, depend-
ing on how much data can be
collected during year one. The
district does not plan on addition
additional wells or increasing
consumption during the study.
Talk of doing so is related to the
possibility of using water from
the lower aquifer as part of a
recharge effort, but is not some-
thing the district is pursuing.
Still has said he would chal-
lenge the permits issued for the
study through the administrative
hearing process, and he shared
his concerns with the county
commission. The county has
asked for representation in the
work group, although there may
only be a single meeting remain-
ing before the group makes its
recommendations to the water
management district.
Canepa said the working group
has been very inclusive.
"Our guiding principal is we
don't want a solution that causes
harm in another area," he said.

What
difference
can a single
donation
make?
One figure frequently cited is
that one pint of blood can save
up to three lives, since it can
provide three lifesaving prod-
ucts: red blood cells, plasma and
platelets. But that only scratches
the surface of the impact. Those
three people may have children,
brothers, sisters or parents. There
may be friends, classmates or co-
workers who will all be affected
because a life was saved because
one person made the decision to
donate blood.
A one-hour investment of time
can have a far-reaching influ-
ence. Be a lifesaver and a life
changer-donate blood today.
LifeSouth and the community
of Keystone Heights invite you
to be a part of saving lives when
they team up to host a blood
drive on Saturday, Feb. 16, at
Hitchcock's, 7380 S.R. 100 in
Keystone Heights between the
hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
"Seventeen percent of non-
donors say 'they never thought
about it,' as the main reason for
not giving," said Laura Bialeck,
donor recruiter for LifeSouth.
"We hope everyone will think
about saving lives and donate
blood at the community drive."
All who donate will receive a
recognition item and a compli-
mentary cholesterol screening.
Hot dogs and sodas will be avail-
able. Donors are also entered in
a drawing to win an iPad Mini.

"I would assume that all city
employees would not have iden-

Staying current on gun ownership in Florida

SBY JAMES WILLIAMS
', Special to the Telegraph
iOne of the problems the nation

i&.aving in its' dialogue about
uiS and gun laws, said Union
CotmiN Sheriff's Office's Lt.
Lyn Williamns,. is that, given the
jtumber of laws, it's hard for the
public to keep up.
LlVe have laws related to spe-
cific types of guns, like shotguns
that cannot have barrels less than
18 inches long, or fully automat-
ic rifles, which are illegal with-
out the proper license, versus
semi-automatic rifles which are
not illegal at all. We have laws
related to gun ownership and
laws related to the commission
6f" felonies with guns. What's
Worse, many of those state and
federal laws change from one
yer to the next."
Recently, the Associated Press
issuied a short item stating that
th6 Bureau of Alcohol, Tobac-
co:-and Firearms had compiled
"thousands of laws, rules and
regulations at the local, county,

One Lawtey woman we spoke

clear on whether she could legal-

Keeping up to date on all the
guin laws is a major concern to
law enforcement officers, who
must enforce the laws within
their jurisdiction. The laws and
their interpretation should prob-
ably also be of great concern to
gtin owners, who are asked to
abide by them.
i James Pimentel, general coun-
s.l for the Clay County Sheriff's
Office, said his office provides
information on all topics in the
lw to the entire agency via legal
bulletins published for the agen-
cy, as well as conducting training
in person. He frequently briefs
personnel on applicable laws at
staff meetings and during brief-
ing for patrol units.
SNo matter how you feel about
gins, the more you study the gun
laws, the more you see why gun
advocates make the claim that
guns are already the most regu-
lated-they say overregulated-

can make.
: Recently three Rotarian gun-
owners were asked if they felt
they were clear on the federal
ahd state gun laws. All three said
theywere probably only vaguely
familiar with them. One Rotarian
gun owner had recently moved to
florida and wasn't sure whether
hw was in compliance with Flor-
ida-Jaws.
:Ii addition to federal laws,
each of the 50 states has its own
firearms laws. Some, like Flor-
ida's, are said to be fairly lax,
while others, like Connecticut's
add New York's, are said to be
restctive, depending on your
point of view. The one thing all
stte laws have in common is that
thley cannot negate or contradict
a federall law.
:Gun owners' hackles are
sometimes raised because state
l-aws are not uniform, which hap-

gaily transporting a loaded rifle
or shotgun in a pick-up truck gun
rack in one state, for example,
and get arrested for it in the next.
For many years, northern
states have complained about
criminals apprehended with guns
that came through Florida's legal
and illegal gun pipelines. This
was the result of Florida's lax
gun laws and inadequate over-
sight, said northern law enforce-
ment officials.
Whether or not its laws are
lax, Florida does have laws that
forbid the computerization or
creation of lists of gun owners'
names or of those buying guns.
The same law must then list a
number of exceptions, such as
gun and pawnshops that are re-
quired to transmit gun purchase
information to the state. The law
has special instructions for in-
surers, who must keep track of
firearms their customers are in-
suring.
However, third-party pro-
viders to secondhand gun and
pawnshops are required periodi-
cally to dump elements of their
records, according to Florida
Statute 790.330. "Such records
must be destroyed within 30
days by the third-party provider.
... Any pawnbroker or second-
hand dealer who contracts with
a third-party provider other than
as provided in this act or elec-
tronically transmits any records
of firearms transactions to any
third-party provider other than
the records specifically allowed
by this paragraph commits a fel-
ony of the second degree," states
the Florida law.
Florida also has laws that for-
bid physicians and medical per-
sonnel to ask about or advise
against guns in patients' homes,
but the law must then list excep-
tions to say that it is alright to
ask questions about the presence
of guns if the immediate medical
care or safety of a patient or of
emergency responders might be
jeopardized.
Add to those complexities the
fact that some gun owners and
others feel the systems don't
work as well in reality as they
do in theory, like the background
checks critics say are inadequate,
largely due to the absence of
mental health information'bon gun
buyers. ..
Others claim the computer
systems and the databases used
to conduct background checks
are not exact sciences. One
Keystone Heights hunter and
gun owner, who asked not to be
named, said he has purchased
various guns over the years and,
during the background check has
been rejected by the either the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement or the FBI on some oc-
casions, but cleared to purchase a
gun on others. Once, he said, he
was rejected and then cleared on
the same day. He doesn't know
what the problem is but expects
it to continue in the future.
Some municipalities across
the nation have created gun
laws for their cities. However, in
2011, the Florida State Legisla-


Who may purchase a gun?


By federal and Florida law,
here are conditions an applicant
must satisfy before he or she
may buy a firearm:
You must be 18 years of
age or older to purchase or own
any firearm in Florida. The
mini-mum age for a concealed
weap-ons permit is 21.
By Florida law, you may
not be disabled or have a physi-
cal infirmity that prevents you
from the safe operation of a
weapon or firearm.
You must not have been
prohibited by law to possess
firearms. Any convicted felon
is prohibited, unless, he or she
has applied to have the felony
ex-punged and a judge has seen
fit to do so.
You must not be violating
the Arms Control Act.
You must not lie on your
application.
By federal and state man-
date, you may also be denied a
right to buy a gun if you have
on rec-ord a history of alcohol-
ism, mental illness, drug addic-


ture declared that all county and
municipal restrictions on guns
are now illegal.
Perhaps the legislature was
,trying to avoid even further ex-
pansion of gun law confusion
from one Florida town to the
next, or it may have meant to
protect unsuspecting municipali-
ties from enacting gun bans that
violated federal or state laws.
In 1977, for example, the
Keystone Heights City Coun-
cil passed a law banning con-
cealed weapons inside the city
limits, including knives, dirks
and other items, but excluding
pocketknives. After FS 790.33 in
2011, the city was obliged to ex-
empt firearms from its concealed
weapons ban, but has retained
the ban on other weapons, such
as daggers and stun guns.
Since the state law spells out
where gun owners can and can-
not fire their weapons, it's not
entirely clear whether a second
Keystone Heights law is valid or
necessary-a city ordinance that
bans fltirig Weapon's inside the
city limits.

Federal laws
Because of the wide array of
gun laws, a newspaper article
cannot cover all details of Feder-
al and Florida gun laws, but here
are some of the basics that may
be useful to local readers.
By constitutional appointment,
the Federal government regu-
lates commercial transactions
across the nation. That applies to
products like bread and automo-
biles, as well as guns. Govern-
ment oversight controls the flow
of firearms-to the extent possi-
ble-into and out of the country
and between states.
Gun and pawnshops are li-
censed by the Federal Bureau of


tion or if anyone has taken out a
current active restraining order
against you. If there is nothing
on your public record for law
enforce-ment to verify these
conditions, law enforcement
must go by your BATF form,
where you are asked if any of
these conditions apply.
You may not make a
"straw" purchase, that is, you
may not buy a gun for someone
else. You may not allow a men-
tally ill person to have access to
your firearm or allow a minor
to have unsupervised access to
your firearm.
Florida Statute 790.174
says, "It is a misdemeanor of
the se-cond degree ... if a per-
son ... fail(s) to store or leave a
firearm in the required manner
and as a result thereof a minor
gains ac-cess to the firearm,
without the lawful permission
of the minor's parent or the
person having charge of the mi-
nor, and pos-sesses or exhibits
it, without the supervision re-
quired by law."


Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives. The Federal Fire-
arms Reference Guide of 2005
is 242 pages of laws and guide-


lines, with more than 35 pages of
definitions alone. These spell out
the government's use of terms
from "honorable discharge" to
"muffler for a firearm."
Those wanting to conduct re-
tail or wholesale commerce in
firearms must choose among
nine types of Federal licenses
corresponding to their activity.
Some of those licenses deal
exclusively with guns and their
ammunition, including armor-
piercing bullets. Other licenses
are for dealers, pawnbrokers and
collectors. There is a license for
manufacturing and importing
"non-destructive devices," such
as grenades and bombs. Four
licenses are for manufacturing,
importing and selling guns, with
guidelines on when and how
firearms and related items can be
shipped through the mail.
Each license category has
its own set of rules and regula-
tions and licensees are expected
to abide by them. The FBI and
BATF are expected to enforce
the federal laws, but many ques-
tion their effectiveness when vi-
olations and the permutations of
trade are so numerous.
The licenses also explain orga-
nizations like BATF and include
penalties for violating federal
firearms laws.
Violation of a federal law be-
comes BATF's or the FBI's re-
sponsibility by definition. Many


feel that those agencies' enforce-
ment is open to question.
Recently a number of rural
sheriffs said they would not en-
force President Barack Obama's
proposed gun-related executive
orders, even though they aren't
expected to enforce them in the
first place; that's the federal gov-
ernment's job.

Buying a gun in Florida
Florida does not require a li-
cense, a permit or registration to
purchase, own or transport rifles,
shotguns and other long guns.
Neither does the federal govern-
ment. However, based on federal
and Florida law, everyone pur-
chasing a rifle, shotgun or hand-
gun is subject to an "instant"
background check.
Gun dealers are required to
notify the Department of Ag-
riculture, which controls gun
commerce in Florida, and an FBI
and FDLE background check us-
ing state and federal databanks
is required. Handgun shoppers
without a concealed weapons
permit already in hand must have
a three-day "cooling-off" period.
State and federal records are
combed because, while state in-
formation reveals felonies, they
might not indicate a prospective

gun buyer's ties to foreign or
domestic terrorism or military
, records, for example.
However, one Web site on
gun laws maintains that licensed
I dealers, those already holding
a concealed weapons permit,
members of law enforcement,
or corrections and security per-
' sonnel among others are exempt
from this background check.
One Keystone Heights gun
Dealer, who asked not to be
; named, said this is incorrect.
SIn fact, he said, not only are all
customers given a background
checkc, including law enforce-
ment and corrections employees,
they are given a check with every
gun purchase, even if they are
trading in one legal gun for an-
-6ther. They are given two back-
ground checks if they come to
Sthe same shop on the same day to
buy two different guns, he added.
It is left up to the applicant to
state on an ATF form at time of
purchase whether he or she has a
history of mental problems, drug
addiction, alcoholism or is a va-
grant.
Florida laws emphasize en-
hanced punishment for crimes
with guns more so than deter-
rence before a crime is commit-
ted. The state has enhancements
for any murder, rape, aggravated
assault, burglary, robbery, or any
other crimes committed with a
firearm. The penalty is increased
Seven further if a machine gun
or a semiautomatic firearm with
magazine capacity of more than
20 centerfire cartridges is used.
Just as pro-gun advocates say
more gun laws don't prevent
crimes, gun law advocates point

ing enhanced punishments after
a gun-related crime has already
--.been committed. Felons who.
.commit crimes with guns may
;,:not be aware of enhancement
laws or clearly do not care, gun
law advocates say.
Keystone Gun and Pawn
owner Sam Abrahamson said
that even if a potential customer
meets Federal requirements, gun
dealers may use their own discre-
tion as, to whether they will sell
to a customer. On the other hand,
Florida's Department of Agri-

Excluding weekends and le-

waiting period to purchase a
handgun from a retail establish-
ment, unless you already have
a concealed carry permit. With
concealed carry permit in hand,
you can carry a handgun away
with you when you leave the
shop.

Displaying and trans-
porting guns openly
Florida law also spells out who
may openly display a gun and
when they may do so. Those who
may display guns include people
with firearms at their home or
place of business.
However, while you have a
right to hang firearms on the
mantle, you may be held respon-
sible if someone breaks into your
home and steals any weapon in-
adequately stored, if not by law
then by civil suit.
Members of organized target,
skeet, trapshooting or antique
and gun collecting clubs may
publicly display guns while at or
going to or from shooting prac-
tic6, meetings or exhibitions.
Sportsmen engaged in or going
to or from fishing, camping or
hunting may also openly display
guns.
Others manufacturing, repair-
ing or dealing in firearms may
openly display, along with mili-
tary, law enforcement person-
nel, private guards, corrections
employees and others while em-
ployed.
At Keystone Gun and Pawn,
Abrahamson said he hadn't seen
a gun displayed in a pickup truck
gun rack for years. Guns promi-
nently displayed in gun racks
while in transit are not against
the law in Florida, but most gun
owners realize, that their property
is endangered, not to mention
public safety, with guns brazenly
in view. Many of the firearms in
Florida's illegal gun pipeline are
stolen from Florida homes and
vehicles.
Pimentel said, "Florida Stat-
utes Section 790.251 sets forth
the carry of firearms in vehfiicles
in general. FS section 790.01
addresses carrying of concealed
weapons. A gun on a rack is
not being carried concealed. FS
section 790.053 addresses open
carrying of weapons. A gun in
a rack is not being carried on or
about the person."

How to get
a concealed
weapons
permit
To get a permit to carry a
concealed weapon, pick up a
concealed carry package at the
sheriff's office in your county.
You must take a gun safety
course.
Several such courses are of-
fered in public or private ven-
ues in the area. They may last
any-where from two to four
hours to four days. Prices for
the courses vary; they are often
associated with a particular gun
range.
The course is offered by a
Na-tional Rifle Association
certified gun safety instructor
on the first Saturday of every
month, at the Bradford Sports-
men's Farm in Graham. (Call
352-481-2005 for information.)

gests a glove compartment, the
trunk of the vehicle or a locked
box. The law does not include
the widely believed "two-step"
or "three-step" process, before
you can make your gun operable.
Gun owners traveling by pub-
lic transportation should see that
their open carry weapon is un-
loaded and in a securely locked

Toy guns
Even toy guns have restric-
tions to keep kids from picking
up what they think is a plaything,
but isn't; or to deter thrill-seek-
ing teens from pointing a toy gun
only to get shot by real officers
with real bullets in real guns.
(Which happened in Florida in
2006.)
Under federal gun law, you
must be 18 years of age to buy an
airsoft gun. The packaging must
tell consumers that criminal mis-
use of toys will result in charges.

By now, there are more than 1

in Florida. Approximately one
out of every 16 people you meet
in the state may at any moment
be legally carrying a concealed

The state's concealed weapons
program is administered by the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services. The

which can be carried concealed
with a permit.

issued permitting you to carry a
concealed weapon does not nec-
essarily guarantee the right to
use it in all circumstances. It is
a misdemeanor to use the con-
cealed weapon for any purpose
other than self-defense.
That is, a little maturity is in
order: no fooling around and no
showing off for your buddies
with your permitted concealed
weapon.
Under Florida law, there is no
"duty to retreat" if you are at-
tacked in any place that you have
a lawful right to be in. Instead,
you may stand your ground and
meet force with force, including
deadly force if you "reasonably
believe" it is necessary to pre-
vent death or great bodily harm
to yourself or others.
Although the law does not
specify areas where concealed
weapons are allowed, it does
spell out where they cannot be
carried. CCSO's Pimentel said
FS 790.06(12)(a) lists 15 restric-
tions on places where a con-
cealed weapons permit holder is
not authorized to carry a firearm.
"That statute does not ad-
dress trains or buses," he notes.
"790.25(3)(1) addresses a firearm
being carried on public transpor-
tation. A person without a permit
would have to have the firearm
securely, encased and not in the
person's manual possession."

Any person found with con-

Senate Bill 954, signed by
Gov. Jeb Bush in 1999, allowed
residents from other states who
have valid concealed weapons
licenses from their states to carry
concealed weapons in Florida as
long as they are 21 or older. They
must be coming from states that
recognize Florida's concealed
weapons licenses.
In 2008, SB 948 stipulated that
for a person to be granted a con-
cealed weapon permit, he or she
must be resident of the United
States and must either be a U.S.
citizen or a permanent resident
alien. The bill also increased the
number of years for validity of
the concealed weapon license
from five to seven years.

Is Spanish moss harmful to
S trees? How can it be removed?
Allen Caillouet,
Kingsley Lake
Spanish moss is familiar to most everyone in
our area, gracefully draping from limbs of ven-
erable old oaks and other landscape trees. It is
associated with the languid, gracious ways of
the old South.
Despite its name, Spanish moss is not a moss
but a bromeliad- a perennial herb in the pineap-
ple family. Most bromeliads, including Spanish
moss, grow on other plants, but do not rely on
them for nutrients. They take nutrients
from the air and debris that collects on *'
the plant. '..
Spanish moss has permeable scales
that catch moisture and nutrients. Al-
though Spanish moss prefers moist
environments, it has the ability to trap
water and survive dry periods. The i
plant can go dormant until moisture UF|F
conditions improve. That makes it par- IP
ticularly well suited to our area, especially con-
sidering the droughts we've experienced during
the past year.
Many homeowners think that Spanish moss
kills their trees. That isn't the case; the only
thing Spanish moss uses trees for is support.
If you observe tree decline after heavy infesta-
tions of Spanish moss, the source of the prob-
lem is likely due to another factor. Tree de-
cline can increase Spanish moss growth as the

canopy thins and
lets in more sun-
light for the moss
to grow. Heavy
moss on a tree may
shade leaves and
slow growth, but
healthy trees will
grow faster than
the moss. Moss can
weigh down and
sometimes break
branches. This, is
particularly true
with pecan trees
because their limb
attachments are
somewhat weak.


Mary W. Bridgman


Many animals use Spanish moss for protec-
tion, taking cover in thick masses of its hanging
strands. Spiders, thrips and many other insects -
including the well-known chigger or redbug-
hide in the moss, and that may be the reason that
ASTER two species of bats use it for daytime
'ADENER resting sites. Spanish moss is used as
W nesting material by several species of
birds. The nests of Parula warblers and
Baltimore orioles are comprised almost
Exclusively of Spanish moss.
Spanish moss may be removed by
.SiTf hand or chemicals. If you do decide
ORIDA to spray, make sure the chemical will
Exteom not damage the tree, underlying grass
or other landscape plants. The University of
Florida materials that I consulted suggest that
homeowners consider the ecological benefits
of Spanish moss and let the plant grow unless
heavy infestation is endangering the health of
a tree through reduced light. In those cases, UF
recommends hand removal of denser moss fes-
toons coupled with judicious pruning of light-
suppressed branches to restore the tree to a more
attractive and healthier condition.

Bradford's Cook repeats as state champ


Keystone's Boettcher
is state runner-up
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford High School
girls' weightlifter Samantha
Cook won her second straight
championship, finishing with
a total of 465 pounds in the
unlimited class at the Feb. 9
Florida High School Athletic
Association Finals in Lakeland.
Cook, a senior, cried after
winning last year's title. This
year wasn't any different, except
for the fact she had company.
"'This time, my entire family
cried," Cook said.
Cook had a, 240-pound bench
press and a 225-pound clean and
jerk, which put her total at 15
pounds ahead of second-place
finisher Morgan Boettcher of
Keystone Heights.
Boettcher, who is also a senior
and good friends with Cook, had
a bench of 235 and a clean and
jerk of 215. It was the second
time she has finished second in
the state after winning a state title
in 2010.
"Honestly, I don't mind being
state runner-up," she said.
What Boettcher was
disappointed in was missing lifts
and not doing more weight than
she did.
Bradford coach De'ac Story
said Boettcher and -Cook have
had some "epic battles" over


BHS wrestlers
Forsyth, James
return to state
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor


Bradford High School's
Phillips James took second place,
while teammate Jarraid Forsyth
was third at the Feb. 8-9 Region
1-Class 1A wrestling finals at the
Bolles School in Jacksonville.
: The top four finishers in each
weight class will compete at the
Florida High School Athletic
Association Finals, which will
be held Friday and Saturday,
Feb. 15-16, at the Lakeland
Center. James, a senior, will be
making his third straight state
appearance, while Forsyth, a
junior, is going for the second
straight time.
James, who wrestles in the
195-pound class, improved
upon his third-place finish at
last year's regional tournament.
He defeated Florida High
senior Mark Hinchliffe in the
semifinals, but was disqualified
in the championship match
against University Christian
senior Robert Parland.
Forsyth' was a regional
champion last year, but was
defeated by University Christian
sophomore Trevor Betros in the
145-pound semifinals this year.
Forsyth rebounded, though, and
defeated Arnold senior Taylor
Ryan 11-6.
Forsyth and Jame' are
attempting to repeat as state
medal winners. James was a
third-place finisher last year,
while Forsyth placed sixth.

Bradford,
Union girls
eliminated in
semifinals
The season came to an end for
both Bradford and Union County
high school girls' basketball
teams on Feb. 12 in the semifinal
round of regionals.
Bradford traveled to Ocala
to play a 25-2 Trinity Catholic
team. The Tornadoes took the
Celtics to overtime before losing
80-76.
I Union was on the road as well,
having to play the Villages, with
the Buffalo (17-5) handing the
Tigers a 48-36 loss.
.Bradford and Union ended
their seasons with 17-10' and
7-14 records, respectively.


the years, and this last one had
a little drama to it. Both lifters
missed their first attempts in, the
clean and jerk. Both then lifted
215 pounds, leaving Cook 5
pounds ahead of Boettcher when
factoring in their best bench
press totals.


Cook successfully did 225
pounds in her third clean and
jerk attempt. Boettcher, who
already had second place locked
up, attempted 230 pounds, which
would've tied her with Cook. In
that case, Boettcher would've
been the state champ due to the


weigh-in tiebreaker.
Boettcher, though, couldn't
pull it off as her elbow touched
her knee. Still, she said she
wasn't mad.

Day as a married man.
George, a former Bradford
County judge, likes to joke with
his wife, Gladys, that he met her
in a foxhole in Korea. She wasn't
actually there, but nonetheless, it
was a case of love at first sight.
It was a cold day, as George
remembered it, and he and his
foxhole buddy, Albert, had been
shot at all day. George insisted
they needed to think of something
other than the war they were
involved in, so he asked Albert
if he had any pictures. Albert
did, and one in particular, caught
George's eye. It was of Albert's
cousin Gladys.
"That was the prettiest girl I
had ever seen," George said.
George said he told Albert if
they got out of the war alive, he
had to meet Gladys.
The two men did, indeed,
make it out alive, flying home
together in March 1952. Albert's
father picked the two men up
at the airport in Chattanooga,
Tenn. Albert told George that
instead of driving to Crandall,
Ga., where Albert lived, they
would first go to, Cleveland,
Tenn., where Gladys lived.
Gladys said from what
she remembered, it was
approximately 10:30 p.m. when
the men arrived. She had just
gotten home with her mother,
who worked home shows for
Stanley Products.
"I didn't know about him to
begin with," Gladys said.
George said Gladys was just
as pretty in person, but he was
able to take his eyes off of her
to notice one thing-her house
was full. One after another,
doors in the house kept opening
after his arrival, and out of each
walked a child.
Albert told George, "Oh,
I meant to tell you, she's
got seven brothers and three
sisters."
After visiting a while, George
exited the-house with Albert to


leave for Georgia. Gladys said
Albert promptly returned and
told her, "George wants to know
if you'd like to go to the movies
with us one night." Gladys told
Albert to tell George if he wanted
her to go to the movies, he could
come right back into the house
and ask her himself.
"I was kind of a bull-headed
little girl-a 20-year old little
girl," Gladys said, laughing.
George did reenter the house
and ask Gladys to go to the
movies. She said she would.
Gladys admitted she was a
little leery of George to begin
with, but said the more she saw
him, the more he grew on her.
"He was always just kind of
fun loving and a pleasure to be
around," she said.
There was no need for Gladys
having to grow on George. He
was smitten, saying it took only
30 minutes after meeting her in
person to decide he wanted to
marry her.
"When I met her up there, I
said, 'Man, this is it.' I had my
mind made up then," George

BHS girls defeat Mt.

Dora for regional win


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford held visiting Mount
Dora to one field goal in the
fourth quarter en route to a 38-
30 win in a Class 4A regional
quarterfinal girls' basketball
game on Feb. 7.
The fourth quarter was far
from perfect for the Tornadoes.
They went 3-6f-7 from the field
and committed nine turnovers
and were plagued by turnovers
all night.
Mount Dora (12-12), though,
went 1-of-22 from the field in the
final period and didn't get that
one field goal until there were
seven seconds left in the game.
"Overall, we just got it done,"
Bradford head coach Danielle
Smith said.
Mount Dora (12-12) led 19-18
at the half and scored two quick
baskets to open the third quarter.
Shalandrah Manning hit a jump

turnover by Bradford and later

The Hurricanes scored only
six points the remainder of the
game, while Wilisha Griner and
Tracey Kemp combined to score
18 of the Tornadoes' 20 second-
half points.
Smith said her players were
perhaps anxious about playing a
do-or-die playoff game. Bradford
had approximately 30 turnovers,
while the game overall had more
than 50.
"I was not expecting for it to
be this rough," Smith said.

Tigers come up short in district title game


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Baldwin High School's
Heseny Arreguin went 10-for-10
from the foul line and scored 13
points in the fourth quarter as the
second seed Indians defeated top
seed Union County 66-62 in the
District 7-1lA boys' basketball
championship on Feb. 9 at
Newberry High School.
The Indians (16-9), who were
16-of-22 overall at the foul line
and made 12-of-14 attempts in
the fourth quarter, will now host
Wildwood in a regional semifinal
game on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 7
p.m.
Union (15-12), which will
travel to play the Villages in
a Feb. 19 semifinal game,
struggled at the line, going 13-
of-25.
"That was the difference in
this ball game tonight," Union
head coach Rufus Jefferson said.
Jefferson was upset at the
officiating in the game, saying
there were "a lot of controversial
calls," but he also said his team
failed to do what it needed to do
to have, a say in the end result.
"The referees definitely
determined the outcome,"
Jefferson said, "but if we get
out there and play basketball,
good, fundamental-style defense
and, most important, hit our free
throws, we take the referees out
of the game."
Shaimea Maeweather scored
14 of his team-high 26 points
in the first half, which saw the
Tigers take a 29-27 lead into
halftime. Union did not shoot
well in the half, though, going
10-of-35 from the field, while
also turning the ball over nine
times.
Baldwin put together a 7-0
run to take a 10-4 lead in the

first quarter, but Maeweather
and Princeton Alexander made
back-to-back 3-pointers to even
the score. A 3-pointer by Carl
Alexander put the Tigers up 13-
12, but Baldwin's Jonah Vann
answered with his own basket
from beyond the arc. That was
the start of a 7-2 run to close out
the quarter as the Indians built a
19-15 lead.
Maeweather scored the Tigers'
first nine points of the second
quarter, including going 3-of-3
at the foul line after being fouled
on a 3-point attempt. Ajump shot
by Keldric Bradley put the Tigers
up 27-25, while Carl Alexander
rebounded his own miss and
scored to make it a 29-25 game.
A rebound putback by Jordan
Mullis pulled the Indians to
within two going into the break.
The Tigers maintained their
lead throughout the third quarter,
but could never build one larger
than six points. They scored five
of the first seven points of the
quarter, with Bradley making
a free throw and Princeton
Alexander sinking a jump shot.
Alexander then came up with a
steal, which eventually led to a
rebound score by Carl Alexander
and a 34-29 lead.
Union committed three
turnovers and missed a basket in
transition after that, but led 40-
34 after Carl Alexander scored
off of another offensive board.
Baldwin's Vann, though, sank
a 3-pointer, while Matt Gunter
made two free throws to cut the
Tigers' lead to one going into the

SP, atem
editor@ bctelegraph.comn

BC emergency
management
director
repsonds
to citizen's
concerns
Dear editor:
I wish to take a mOment to
clarify some of the concerns
expressed by Bradford County
resident Paul McDavid in his
latest letter to the Editor printed
in the Telegraph on Feb. 7,2013.
Mr. McDavid has on many
occasions written in and
expressed his' displeasure with
certain personnel and aspects
of the emergency services
of Bradford County. In his
latest letter, he specifically
addressed myself and others in
a correspondence that, while
factual in some areas, was
lacking in specifics that go into
the decision-making process in
an emergency response.
Mr. McDavid questioned me
for making a decision during
a response to a residential fire,
pointing out that several fire
departments were closer than
the Heilbronn Springs Fire
Department that was requested
to assist. He is correct. The fire
departments in Hampton and
Theressa, as well as other fire
departrhents outside Bradford
County, were indeed closer.
What Mr. McDavid did not
know is there were no Firefighter
1-trained personnel available
at the Hampton Volunteer Fire
Department. However, Theressa
Volunteer Fire Department had
one Firefighter 1-trained member
available who responded POV
(privately owned vehicle), and
Heilbronn Springs Voluateer Fire
Department had four Firefighter
1-trained personnel available.
It was not that long ago that
Mr. McDavid complained in a
letter to-the editor that Bradford
County relies too heavily on
mutual aid from other counties
coming into Bradford County,
therefore, placing the tax burden
on another county. Mutual aid
is intended to be tfili iiffly
when the' situation exceeds
your own county's capabilities.
This differs from the Automatic
Aid Agreement that Bradford
County has with Clay County in
the Keystone Heights/Theressa


part of Clay County. While the
Lacrosse Fire D)epartment is its
own entity, they are dispatched
by Alachua County and
coordinate with Alachua County
Fire Rescue.
A request for mutual aid,
which this would be, involves
several steps and time in order
to be accomplished. The timing
of any request comes into
play. Had I called for Lacrosse
Fire Department, the .Bradford
County fire dispatcher would
have had to have made a phone
call to the Alachua County
Communications Center. The
information would then be
taken down and relayed to their
fire dispatcher. That dispatcher
would then reach out to the
on-duty district fire chief, who
would either approve or deny
the request based on availability.
If there is a question, the district
chief could make a call to his
supervisor, the assistant fire
chief of Alachua County. Once
that is approved, and if Lacrosse
Fire Department is not already
committed to acall, they would
then be paged out. This process
can take;up to 10 minutes before
there is a response from Alachua
County.
We do not monitor Alachua
County's call load, so we cannot
easily determine if they can
fulfill a mutual aid request. We
do have a mutual aid agreement
with Starke Fire Rescue, and
they assist us often with calls.
Their availability is based on
proximity of 5 miles from thecity
limits of Starke and is dependent
upon what needs may arise
in, their area of coverage. For
example, if they are committed
in Brooker and a structure fire
occurs in downtown Starke, they
cannot leave their committed
assignment. Firefighters from
volunteer stations would have to
cover in their absence.
Bradford County is blessed
with a great group of volunteer
firefighters, who dedicate
their best efforts to the saving
of lives and preservation of
property. The city of Starke Fire
Rescue is the only fire station
in Bradford County with' paid
firefighters on duty 24/7. All
other fire departments must rely
on their volunteer members to
respond day or night. I often
receive compliments from other
organizations, such as Division of
Forestry, other counties' paid fire
rescue and EMS departments as
well as emergency management
departments who praise the
efforts of our volunteers as one
of the best in the state. I thank
them for their hard work and
dedication to Bradford County.
Should any citizen of Bradford
County have any questions or
concerns, please feel free to stop


by my office. The door is always
open.

Freedom
giving way
to tyranny

Dear editor:
TYRANNY.
Look this up in your Funk
and Wagnalls, and you will have
to conclude that perhaps "we as
"free" freedom cherishing loving
Americans have had our head up
our yang yang so long, assuming
that the government of these
United States will preserve and
protect us assuming that those
inside the Washington D.C. belt
are there to protect our interest
through the instrument given to
us by our forefathers.
Itjust might be too late because
over 51 percent of us have sold
our birth right to the company
store.
Living off of thefat of the land
is defended by those who do this
as a right, and the tyrannical in
Washington D.C. are using this
to augment and perpetuate their
lust for power. It is not just their
efforts to take away our rights
to protect ourselves from such
tyranny, it's the support of the
freeloaders that is being used
by the poorest excuse for an
American president that we have
had in the history of'American
presidents. There is no other
definition or a better one than
what we have in the White House
and the Congress.
Well, what can be done, one
might ask. I really don't know,
but I know what I am going to
do.
I AM GOING TO KEEP MY
DOORS LOCKED AND MY
GUNS LOADED.

,Bradford boys'

season ends
with OT loss

DAN HILDEBRAN
Monitor Editor

i Third seed Bradford overcame
an eight-point deficit with 3:12
left in regulation to tie Williston,
but lost in overtime 79-75. The
loss knocked the Tornadoes out
of the District 5-4A tournament
Feb.8 in Fort White.
Williston, the tournament's
second seed, went on to win the
championship by defeating top
seed Fort White 66-62.
The two teams played basket
for' basket for much of the
first half until Williston (21-
7) opened up a 37-28 lead just
before intermission.
With- three minutes remaining
in the second quarter, Williston
deployed a jump-and-run, full-
court press. After a Bradford
time out, the Red Devils switched
to a 1-3-1, half-court press that
appeared to knock the Tornadoes
(17-11) off stride. Williston
converted on three consecutive
Bradford turnovers right before
the half.
Bradford coach Traavis
Chandler said the Red Devils'
run before the half hurt the
Tornadoes.
.. "Their press kind of rattled
4 us," said Chandler.. "We did
S not do what we prepared for in
Practice. It wasn't anything new
that they did."
SThe Tornadoes spent most of
| !the fourth quarter clawing their
Iway back into the game, mostly
'on the inside play of Justin
McBride, who led all scorers
",with 34 points. The senior's
jump shot under the basket tied
ithe game as regulation ended.
; "Our guys., especially our
seniors, stepped up,"' said
i' Chandler. "They fouglit hard and
fought back into the game. I was
; proud of them for doing that."
: Turnovers hurt the Tornadoes
:-in overtime, as three of the
team's top ball-handlers, Keaaris
2'Ardley, Troyvante Floyd and
S;Deantre Burch, sat on the bench
after fouling out.
t'. "Wejust couldn't hold ontothe
loose balls and get the key stops
M down the stretch," Chandler said

Union softball
players
Harden, Rimes
sign letters
of intent

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
,A scholarship signing
ceremony at the Union County
High School media center on
FebiJ 6 brought seniors Ashlyn
Harden and Harlee Rimes one
step0closer to lifelong dreams. ;
Harden and Rimes signed
letters of intntt to continue
playing softball at Palatka's St.
Johiis River State and Winter
Haven's Polk State colleges,
respectively. Both said they have
been dreaming of this day since
they were old enough to walk-
and start playing ball,
::"To say I get the opportunity
to go play at the college level is
really awesome," Harden said.
Rimes said she was overjoyed
and overcome with emotion
during the signing. Union head
coach Trudy Andrews was no
less excited.
S"Thsis is what they've worked
for since they were 5 years old,"
Andrews said. "To see it come
to fruition is very exciting. To
see a smile on their face and see
them excited and realize their
dream came true is an awesome
feeling."
Harden, who plays catcher,
said she realized she had the
potential to play in college when
she started receiving attention
from coaches while playing travel
ball. Actually doing so, however,
was not a sure thing after Harden
suffered a torn ACL during
last year's district tournament.
Haiden said St. Johns head coach
Ka.ti Brosky told her she wanted
her -as ,a player no matter what,
having seen her :play before the
injury.
1 "Lwent over there and talked
to her and all the girls" Harden
said. "I absolutely loved it over
there."
:Harden, who kept playing
both softball and volleyball with
te.,injury, finally had surgery
tis past December. Therefore,
Harden won't suit up for UCHS
this year.
"She realized she. needed to
go ahead and miss her senior'
season," Andrews said. "She
had this opportunity to play at
the college level and make her
dream come true.".
Though Rimes is not having to
overcome an injury, she is no less
grateful for the opportunity that
has been given her. She admitted
sheai.dn't have any offers to go
elsewhere, but Polk State seems
to eijust what she is looking for.
Rimes said she wanted to. go. to
a school that wasn't too big and,
thai wasn't too far away.
"I felt like I was close to
l1ome," Rimes said of Polk. "I
feel like I'm close to my family."
Rimes, who plays shortstop at
UCHS, said she was recruited
as A center fielder. She said it
doesn't matter, though, what
position she plays. .
'"I'm happy as long as I getto
play," she said.
SRimes said she's played every

position but catcher anyway. She
was even called on to pitch some
last season.
Andrews said if Rimes was
needed to play catcher, she could
probably do that, too, or at least
give it her all in an attempt to.
"You can put her anywhere,
and you know she's going to get
the job done," Andrews said.
Therefore, it's hard for
Andrews to single out one thing
in particular Rimes does better
than anything else. The same can
be said of Harden, who's solid
offensively and defensively.
"(Harden) can do it all,"
Andrews said.
Andrews said the two players
are alike in that they both listen
to coaching and constantly
work to get better. They should
have no problem making the
transition to playing in .college,

she said.
"They can adapt to any
situation, so they're going to fit
in," Andrews said. "Not only will
they work with the team, they're
going to work out on their own,
too, to make themselves better
and do what they have to do to
fit into the team."
Harden said when she steps
out onto the field for the first
time in college, she will most
likely be thinking, "My dreams
finally came true." Rimes said
her thoughts would probably be,
"This really can't be happening."
It will happen, though, and it
was made official on a special
day the two were able to take
part in together.
"We've been friends since
we were in diapers," Rimes
said. "We always wanted this to
happen."

to the Tigers cutting Baldwin's
lead to two when Edwards
scored off of an inbounds pass
from Maeweather.
After three free throws by
the Indians, Maeweather had a
3-pointer to make the score 64-
62 with 12 seconds left. The
Tigers had to resort to fouling,
which put Arreguin at the line,
where he made both attempts for


following a steal by Maeweather.
Alexander and Maeweather,
who finished with 20 and 16
points, respectively, scored a
combined 14 points in the third
quarter as Union built a 10-point
lead. Alexander's first basket

transition off of an assist from
Maeweather to put the Tigers
up 40-35, while a 3-pointer by
Alexander increased the lead to
eight.
Maeweather followed with

being fouled on a drive to the
basket, while Alexander drained
his third 3-pointer of the game.

game with 15 rebounds and
three steals, while Bradley and
Princeton Alexander had four
and three steals, respectively.

happen if both teams win their
regional semifinal games. They
would face each other in Baldwin
on Saturday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m.
for the Region 4 championship.
(If Union defeats the Villages
and Wildwood defeats Baldwin,
Union would host Baldwin on


assists, respectively.

throughout the remainder of the
game.
Bradley, who scored 10 of
the Tigers' final 18 points,
grabbed nine rebounds and had
four assists, while Maeweather
finished with five rebounds and
five assists.

PIERCE
6)ntinued from 2B
siid.
The proposal waited, though.
Gladys said they dated for six
months before she concluded
George would probably ask
her to marry him. The proposal
aume in October 1952.
George, who at that time was
driving from Tyndall Air Force
Base in Panama City, where he
was stationed, to see Gladys,
remembered proposing, only to
la told that he would have to
*so ask Gladys' parents.
1' talked to her mother first,"
george said. "She didn't ask me
lIt one question. She said, 'Are
:u a Christian?' I could say
yes. I became a Christian when
I was about 9 years old in Live
Oak.''
SGeorge had the blessing of
Gladys' mother, but Gladys then
Sent him to talk to her father. As
it turned out, Gladys' father had
one question in response to the
idea of marriage as well.
S"He said, 'What did her
another say?' I told him," George
said. "He said, 'That's fine with
me.'"
SGeorge was discharged from
service in December 1952. He
and Gladys married Jan. 18,
1953. They moved to Florida
as George had taken advantage
6f the GI Bill to enroll at the
University of Florida.
S"It was the first time the
University of Florida had
gone over 10,000 students,"
George said. "There were 2,500
veterans from World War II and
the Korean War that began at the
university."
Gladys said she had not met
any of George's family until
after they got married and drove
t Florida. During the visit with
(orge's family, Gladys said
(4eorge's mother kept talking
*put someone named "Hinton."
jadys had no idea who Hinton
-N,%s. She knew George had a
sister, but thought maybe he
lad a brother he never told her
about.
: "Come to find out, that's what
(George)'s parents and all of his
relatives called him," Gladys
said. Hinton was George's
griddle name.
While he went to school,


the couple lived in "ancient"
barracks that had been turned
into apartments, George said.
The rent was $21 per month, he
said, adding, "The kids wouldn't
even live in them today, I'm
sure."
Since George was going to
school, Gladys had to work to
help the couple get by. Her first
job at Wilson's Department
Store didn't last long. As
Christmas approached, Gladys
asked her office manager about
having the day after Christmas
off. Christmas fell on Friday,
and back then, stores didn't
open on Sundays, Gladys said.
Having the Saturday off would
give her and George three days
to travel to Tennessee to be with
her family.
As it so happened, a lot of the
business owners in Gainesville
decided their stores wouldn't
be open on the day after
Christmas since they didn't do
much business beyond people
returning items, Gladys said.
That decision prompted Gladys'
boss to declare that not only
would Wilson's be open the
day after Christmas, but every
employee would be working
that day.
When Gladys' office manager
told her she couldn't have the
day after Christmas off after
all, her response was, "Well, I
know one thing. I'm going to
Tennessee for Christmas. If I
can't be off Saturday, I quit."
George was astonished to hear
that Gladys had quit her job. He
wondered what they were going
to do. She simply said, "I don't
know, but I was looking for (a
job) when I found that one, so I
guess I'll find another one."
She eventually got a job at a
UF engineering research lab,
but would later leave there to
get a job at Eli Witt Cigar and
Candy Company, where she
worked until the couple moved
to Lebanon, Tenn.
George had received his degree
in business administration at UF
and took one semester of law
school there.
"My GI bill ran out," he said.
George finished law school
at Cumberland University in
Lebanon.
"We decided we'd go back to
Tennessee, and we'd be close
to my mom and dad, and they

better in Tennessee. Again, they
lived in old barracks, but these
were covered on the outside by
only tar paper.
Gladys worked at a factory
sewing lace on panties before
leaving for a job at Lux Clock.
George pumped gas while going
to school. The couple lived
on less than $300 per month,
Gladys said. George said they
lived at the poverty level during
their first six years of marriage,
but Gladys said it was really
below the poverty level.
So what got them through
those tough times?
"I suppose just loving each
other," Gladys said.
Despite just trying to get by,
the couple could still go out
and have a good time. Gladys
remembered going to the
Gainesville drive-in theater on
Wednesdays when the admission
was $1 for a carload. The Pierces
and four other couples would
climb into George's 1950 Ford.
Once there, they could enjoy
a soda for 5 cents and a hot dog
for 10 cents.
"For 25 cents a person, we
could go to the movie and
have a hot dog and a Coke,"
Gladys said. "That was our treat
weekly."

When George graduated from
Cumberland University, the
couple returned to Gainesville,
where George got a job with
a law firm. Gladys went back
to work for Eli Witt Cigar and
Candy Company, but only for
approximately seven months
as she was pregnant with the
couple's first of two children.
"I started working for $50 a
week as a lawyer," George said.
However, with a baby on the
way, George knew he needed
to try to make more money.
An attorney suggested he talk
to Arch Thomas, who was
practicing law in Starke. George

met with Thomas, who was
preparing to run for a Florida
House of Representatives seat.
"It was the fall of 1959,"
George said. "I talked to him,
and he said, 'I'll give you $100
a week and one third of what
we make this year if you want
to come on.' I said, 'When can
I start? Monday?' That was
on a Friday. He said, 'No. Go
back and give them two weeks'
notice.'"
George practiced law in
Starke for 22 years, and also
served as the city attorney. He
served as Bradford County
judge from 1981 until 1994,
when he retired. He was then
called to serve as a senior judge,
a capacity he served in until
2006.
Looking back on their lives
together, George and Gladys
both expressed their pleasure
with the way things turned out.
It wasn't always easy for the
couple, especially in those first
years of marriage with George
going to school, but George
said, "I wouldn't have changed

anything. We always felt the
good Lord would supply our
needs."
George and Gladys said
they never made huge plans
on Valentine's Day or their
anniversary. Gladys said going
out to eat and spending time
with family were the main
things, while George added,
"We always had our cards for
each other."
"I guess we haven't really
been too mushy mushy," Gladys
said, with George adding, "I
guess as you get older, you
know you love each other."
They don't ever go to bed at
night, though, without saying, "I
love you," Gladys said.
Over 60 years' time, that
is quite a testament to a
relationship that began in the-
unlikeliest of places-a foxhole
in the Korean War. Pictures say
a thousand words, and that one
picture of Gladys spoke plenty
to George.
"She was pretty, and still is,"
George said. "It has worked out
all these years."

IL 4FinsFur & TailIS "I
IE By Mickey Agner VI-11


decreased over the last 30-50
years, and along"with that trend,
bird hunting has taken a hit in
terms of popularity. Dove and
duck hunting are still around,
but quail hunting has all but
disappeared. Interestingly
Enough, the concept and sport
of wing shooting has prospered
over that same period of time.
The necessary growth and
. development of regulating
agencies such as the National


Sporting Clay Association
and the Florida Sporting Clay
Association are clear evidence
of it. More evidence of the
interest in wing shooting is
coming to Bradford County in
a big way on Thursday through
Sunday, Feb. 28-March 3, with
the Florida Challenge at the
Bradford Sportsmen's Farm in
'Graham.
If you are interested in visiting
the Sportsmen's Farm and


seeing some good shotgunners,
this is your opportunity. In
addition to the competition,
there will be numerous
vendors selling gunsmith
services, electronic ears,
ammo and clothing. Additional
information, including
registration, competition times
and directions, can be obtained
at www.bsfslhootingsports. com.
Paul Landry participated in the
Archery Shooter's Association
tournament in Newberry ,,on
Feb. 1, and out of nearly 300
competitors, he came in 16th.
Not bad!
Remember the following
dates for your outdoors calendar:


Feb. 16, Florida Bass

Classic (location and time
TBA);
Feb. 21, Crosshorn
Ministries monthly meeting
at the 'Starke Golf and
Country Club, featuring Lamar

calls;
Feb. 23, Bradford

at Rodman (no club fees);
Feb. 25, full moon;
Feb. 28-March 3, 2013
Florida Challenge at Bradford
Sportsmen's Farm.
March 9-10, spring turkey
hunt;


March 16-21, spring turkey
season;
March 21, Crosshorn
Ministries meeting to be held at
the Theressa Community Center
as opposed to the Starle' Golf
and Country Club.
Tight lines and safe hunting
until next week.

reports,
Paul Landry

and more

Gary Simpson, in his weekly
Gainesville Sun column,
summarized the winter fish bite
this year by saying, "Things are
a clangingg" When questioned
by phone about his point, he
indicated. the remark was in
reference to a change in the
speckled trout bite on the west
coast and the crappie bite locally.
In further detail, he specified
trout liked to stay on the grassy
flats as soon as the water cools
off in the early fall, but they
would leave when the water got
colder with winter.
Later in the early spring,
they will return when the water
warms slightly, he said.
'This year, they never left the
flats," Simpson said.
Regarding the crappie
bite, he stated they usually
Sspawn in February in the lakes
hear Gainesville, but this
year they had roe in them by
Christmas. Simpson did add
that he thought the bass were
running more consistently with
previous years.
The big question local to
Bradford, Union and Clay
counties is what are the crappie
on Kingsley Lake going to
do, or what have they already
-done? Jimmy Prevatt wonders
if tHey have not already bedded.
Townsend Strickland is in hoped
that they had moved in shallow
at the end of January. Kingsley
Lake has always marched to a
Different drummer regarding
fish- cycles, so this story will
have to play out over the next
month or two before it ends.
Interestingly, fishermen are.
not the only ones perplexed by
the weather. Palatka will have
its Azalea Festival oh Saturday
and Sunday, March 2-3, and the
odds indicate the blooms %yill all
be gone' by that date. One thing
we are being told consistently by
the weathermen is that the bugs
will be worse this summer as a
result of the mild weather.
The Lake Butler Bass Club
held its February tournament on
Feb. 2 at Sampson Lake. Dean
Elixson and Cody Douglas took
first place with a total of 16.755
pounds. Johnny Key captured
second place with a total weight
of 16.18 pounds. Cody Douglas
indicated the majority was taken
on plastic swim baits.
The Florida Bass Network
held its first February tournament
at Little Santa Fe on Feb. 2. John
Mobley and Randy Drovin took
first place with a total of 15.39
"pounds for their top five bass.
The same team took the big fish
