with Arlington Chamber of Commerce Center for Innovation President and CEO Wes Jurey and
North Florida Regional Chamber of Commerce CEO Pam Whittle were among the leaders meeting on
the future of Bradford County.


Leaders

challenged to

build vision
BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN
Special to the Telegraph
Envision Bradford 2023, a newly
established initiative to bring jobs
to Bradford County, launched with
an impressive turnout of over 80
attendees on June 11 at the Gov.
Charley E. Johns Conference Center.
The project is facilitated by Santa
Fe College. Its president, Dr. Jackson
Sasser, stressed the importance of
building upon the economic, cultural
and social assets of Bradford County
with ideas that are fresh, innovative
and agreeable to its citizens.
Wes Jurey, president and CEO of
the Arlington (Texas) Chamber of
Commerce Center for Innovation,
presented the keynote address.
He explained that the Center for
Innovation is a nonprofit LLC which
serves as a catalyst for technology
based economic development.
It supports a strategic approach
to the formation of collaborative
partnerships, facilitating and enabling
the integration of industry, academic,
and government research and
discovery with venture capital, talent

Jurey has also been involved
with the center's establishment of
TechComm, a federal partnership
intermediary, to facilitate technology
. transfer in support of the Domestic
Technology Transfer Program.
TechComm represents an interagency
coalition of seven federal agencies
and their 263 labs to 1) license federal

Accidental fire displaces Starke family


A' fire forced a family from their
home in Starke on Friday evening,
June 14.
Just before 10 p.m., while on
routine patrol, Starke police officer
Anthony Guirate discovered a mobile
home on fire at 1314 E. Market Road.
Firefighters from Starke and Lawtey
responded and found one end of the
singlewide trailer on fire.
Starke firefighters made an
aggressive attack on the fire and
quickly brought the blaze under
control. However, due to the age of
the structure and the heat and smoke
damage, the home was deemed


uninhabitable.
The Red Cross responded to the
scene to assist the family.
"We provided a place to stay and
financial assistance for them and
the child," said Marvin Artman, a
Red Cross Disaster Assistance Team
member. The family was placed in a
hotel on Friday night and provided a
relief card for food and clothing. "Our
disaster assistance team in Bradford is
very proactive, and we are happy to
help those in need after an emergency
like this," said DAT Leader Wendy
Russell.
The homeowner, Gerald Smith,


who rents the trailer to a family of two
adults and a 3-year-old child, reported
to Starke firefighters that a lamp had
fallen over in a back bedroom and
started a small fire. The occupants
extinguished the fire, and thinking
everything was OK, left the residence.
They returned a short time later to find
firefighters battling the blaze.
No injuries were reported. A police
investigation is ongoing as a result
of a marijuana plant found on the
property.

City, Badcock work toward agreement


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The city of Starke and the owner
of the Badcock Furniture franchise
in town are closer to a development
agreement that will assist the retailer
in its move to the south of the city.
The city commission approved the
agreement Tuesday night. It's now
up to Summers Furniture, owner and
operator of the franchise, to sign the
agreement or give it back to the city
stipulating certain changes.
Summers has plans to replace the
downtown Starke location with a
Badcock Furniture and More store to
be constructed on U.S. 301 south of


the city.
The development agreement
requires annexation of that southerly
property into the city, which is also
required by ordinance for any business
seeking to connect to city utilities, in
this case water service. The city will
also be receiving the deed to the land
Badcock currently owns on Walnut
Street.
Through the agreement, Starke is
waiving annexation application fees
and utility connection fees as well as
impact fees on the new construction,
although the commission announced
earlier this month it would be taking
action soon to place a yearlong


moratorium on impact fees for all new
development.
Starke's attorney, Terry Brown,
said the company was hesitant about
annexation because of the extra cost
associated with paying property taxes
to the city. To sweeten the deal, the
agreement calls for a 10-year waiver
of property taxes on the annexed
property, acknowledging that the
value of the property the city is
receiving in return meets or exceeds
the amount of taxes that would be
collected during that term.

KH man


lost at sea
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Monitor Editor
The Coast Guard,said it suspended
its search in the Gulf of Mexico for
two missing boaters at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Missing are Glenn Harris, 70, of
Keystone Heights and Tom Morrison,
65, of Jacksonville.
,, Harris was a retired forester for a
timber company and was well known
for putting on educational displays
and seminars about forestry at north
Florida events and schools. He was
also a member of the Keystone
Heights Rotary Club and on the board
of the Keystone Airpark Authority.
According to the Coast Guard, the
pair, along with Frank Dipaula, 78, of
Keystone Heights and Tom Grant, 67,
left Horseshoe Beach in a 21-foot boat
at around 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
The Dixie County Sheriff's
Office, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, a Coast
Guard HC-Hercules aircraft, a MH-60
Jayhawk helicopter and a Coast Guard
cutter searched 2,537 square miles
for 13 hours looking for the missing
vessel.
On Sunday, the crew from the
Hercules aircraft spotted the capsized
boat. The crew directed FWC agents
to the site who rescued Dipaula and
Grant.
According to the federal agency,
the two survivors were exhausted and
disoriented.
Grant said that Harris slipped below
the surface less than a minute after the
boat capsized.
Around 8:30 Saturday night,
Morrison told Grant and DiPaula he
was giving up. Soon he was also lost.
A memorial service for Harris is
scheduled for 11 a.m., Saturday, June
22 at the Keystone United Methodist
Church.



Survivor

describes

struggle to live
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Monitor Editor
Tuesday morning marked the third
day of Tom Grant's new lease on life.
Within the previous four days, he had
witnessed the death of a close friend,
the passing of a new acquaintance and
had resigned himself to the likelihood
that he too would perish in the Gulf of
Mexico.
Grant, along with longtime friends
Glenn Harris and Frank DiPaula,
joined Jacksonville resident Tom
Morrison for a June 15 fishing trip off
Horseshoe Beach that turned to disas-
ter less than two hours into the voy-
age.
As he sat at his dining room table
Tuesday, Grant recalled his nearly 24
hours at sea and how one agonizing
decision he made will haunt him the
rest of his life.
Grant had always wanted to catch a
lot of fish, so he organized the fishing
expedition, with each participant chip-
ping in $50.
Over the years, Grant had gotten
to know DiPaula, but only knew him
as "Frank the baker." DiPaula owned
a boat and knew a retired chief petty
officer from Jacksonville, Morrison,
who frequently captained the vessel
during fishing trips in the Gulf.
Grant needed one more person
to complete the trip and had a little
trouble coming up with the last per-
son. One friend, Tom Lazaro, could
not go. Finally, one of Grant's long-
time friends, Harris, said he would
go. Harris was an avid hunter with a
reputation for bagging large numbers
of turkeys.
The trio left Keystone Heights
Friday evening in DiPaula's pickup,
hauling the 21-foot Wellcraft pow-
ered by a 150-horsepower Johnson
outboard.
When they arrived in Cross City,

2A BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 2013


County financially strong with money to spend


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The Bradford County
Commission was given a rosy
financial outlook during the
presentation of its most recent
financial audit earlier this month.
Terry Kite of Purvis, Gray and
Company presented the county's
audit for Fiscal Year 2012, which
ended Sept. 30,2012.
The audit takes a look at
the county's books in a couple
of different ways. One is by
providing a government-wide
statement of the county's
assets versus its liabilities as
an indicator of the its financial
health.
The county's assets exceed
its liabilities by $67 million, up
more than $1 million from 2011.
S Unrestricted net assets for
government activities totaled
$10.8 million, while $16.3
million was restricted for specific
purposes. The remaining $39.9
million was invested in capital
assets, but the unrestricted
amount was available to meet
Future financial obligations.
Having total assets of more
than $69 million and liabilities of
less than $2.5 million is a good
sign, Kite said.
"You're in strong financial
position at the end of September
2012," Kite said.
The audit also provides a
statement of activities covering
the of collection revenue and
spending of revenue. According
to the audit, it was a 'good year
financially for the county given
the economic difficulties of
the state and nation. Revenue
exceeded expectations by more
than $716,000, and expenses
were more than $2.9 million
less than expected, resulting
Sin an excess of revenue over
expenditures of nearly $3.66
million.
The- audit's fund financial
statements covers the county's
29 individual funds in eight
groups (seven major funds and
one aggregated fund covering the
other 22 non-major funds).
This look at the specific
activities of the county shows a
Total fund balance of more than
S$25.3 million, including more
Than $10.1 million in the general
Fund, $3.56 million in one-cent
Sales tax revenue, $2.7 million
in transportation, $1.2 million in
fines and forfeitures, $336,000
in emergency medical services,
$226,000 for the public library,
and $7.14 million in the other
non-major funds. Some of these
funds are reserved and some are
Sunreserved.
The total fund balance was up
* 5.3 percent, or. more than $1.27
million in 2012. That was in
Spite of a decrease in the general
fund of more than $665,000. The
* one-cent sales tax fund was up
nearly $554,000, and the library
fund was up more than $31,000.
The fund for transportation was
Sup nearly $351,000, and the.
Fines and forfeitures fund was
up nearly $505,000. Emergency
medical services was down
$124,000, but the remaining
non-major funds had a combined
increase of more than $623,000.
SThe county's debt grew from
$1.59 million to $1.75 million
because of the purchase of voting
equipment and an excavator for




Democrats to

meet June 24
The Bradford County Demo-
cratic Executive Committee will
hold its next meeting at 7 p.m. on
Monday, June 24, in the board-
room of the Santa Fe College
Andrews Center.
Among the items on the agen-
da are reports on the Jefferson
Jackson Dinner in Hollywood,


the road department. Most of the
debt is in accumulated absences
payable to employees, other post
employment benefits and landfill
post closure costs.
"Your long-term debt is really
very low for a county your size,
so that's a positive sign. You
don't have a lot of debt, which is
good," Kite said.
General revenue is primarily
property, sales and gas taxes
and other shared state revenue.
Kite also covered the county's

Sheriff repayVng

grant funding, which was more
than $1 million in federal funds
and nearly $1.6 million in state
funds. This funding helped pay
for firefighting and other public
safety equipment and training,
housing rehabilitation, the
library, mosquito control, etc.
The audit repeats a finding
from the previous year
recommending the county adopt
written agreements with the four
volunteer and three municipal
fire departments, outlining the
responsibilities and requirements
of each. According to the
county, some of those have been
developed and approved by the
county commission, others are in
the process of being negotiated,
and at least one is at an impasse.
A new condition addressed
involved an invoice submitted
by a contractor that covered a
period of more than two months,
overlapping two fiscal years.
It was impossible to determine
which expenditures occurred in
which year, possibly resulting in
a misstatement of expenditures
in one or both. The audit says
the county should make sure
contractors are providing month-
end invoices or at least be cut
payment requests off at Sept. 30
between fiscal years.
"Your reserves are strong
at this point," Kite told the
county commission in summary.
"Financially, you're in good
shape."
Kite did not. go over
the separate audits for the
constitutional officers. In brief:
The county clerk's cash assets
of nearly $418,000 minus its
liabilities of more than $126,000
due to accounts payable and the
county commission left a balance
of more than $291,000, up more
than 63 percent from 2011.
Most of that was restricted for
fines and forfeitures and records
modernization.
Revenue from fines and
forfeitures, charges for service
and the state totaled just over
$959,000, less than the $1.42
million spent. The remainder of,
the budget was covered with the
help of a $625,000 transfer from
the county commission.
The only comment from
the auditor was the common
statement that there is a lack of
separation of incompatible duties
because of the limited number of
personnel. This comes up often
in smaller governments with
small staffs.
The sheriff's assets of
$651,000 exceeded liabilities

by more than $321,000. That
balance-up 81 percent from
2011-was restricted to the
inmate welfare fund or the E-911
fund, or it was assigned for the
purpose of education and public
service.
Revenue from
intergovernmental sources,
charges for service or
miscellaneous sources
totaled nearly $644,000, but
expenditures were more than
$5.1 million, which is why the
county commission transferred
more than $4.7 million to cover
law enforcement.
In addition to a statement on
the separation of duties, the audit
found several outstanding checks
that were several years old in the
operating bank account. They
had been declared unclaimed
funds and distributed in the
inmate trust account. The audit
recommended the checks be
reviewed and either reissued,
voided or distributed to the state
as unclaimed funds. This was
reported in two prior audits.
The audit also found the sheriff
had received nearly $5,000 in
holiday pay he was not eligible
for, an oversight of his finance
department. (He is the only law
enforcement officer not eligible.)
That amount is being repaid in
installments.
Most of the nearly $27,000
in cash the tax. collector's
office had at the end of 2012
was turned over to the county
commission since the office does
not carry money forward. The
office's $646,000 in revenue
came largely from charges for
service and was spent primarily
on salaries and benefits. The tax
collector received more revenue
than expected and spent less than
expected as well.
The only finding was in
regard to separation of duties.
Tax Collector Teresa Phillips
said since taking over, she has
taken on some of the related
responsibilities and is cross
training other employees in
accounting duties.
The property appraiser
turned over nearly $33,000 to the
county commission at the end
of the year. Charges for service
and miscellaneous revenue
totaled more than $14,000, so the
commission covered the office's
$518,000 in expenditures.
Expenditures came in less than
budgeted.
Again, the only finding was
related to separation of duties.

Mike Rich of Hampton and
Joe Lombardi of Gainesville
are opening a restaurant
and bar similar to Cowboys
steakhouse where that restaurant
once operated. They told the
commission June 18 that their
planning didn't anticipate such a
high utility deposit.
The deposit is based on an
average of prior billings at the
location and represents two
month's worth of charges.
Rich said they plan on
creating 25-30 jobs and will
create -revenue for the city.
They are using local contractors
and vendors in the renovation
of the building, he added, and
will support, local bands as an
entertainment venue. They hope
to provide an alternative to going

"We just hope we can provide
more benefit than we're asking
for," Rich said.
Commissioner Wilbur
Waters suggested the partners
pay half of the deposit now to
turn on the power, then pay the
rest in installments added to
their monthly utility bill. The
commission ultimately agreed to
just that.
There was concern that the
commission might be setting a
precedent for future requests,
but Brown said this could be
viewed as a limited development

the restaurant owners based on
the expected economic impact.

"This Market Road fire was
easily preventable," said Michael
Heeder, public information
officer with Bradford County
Emergency Management. "Here
we have a lamp that fell over
sparking an accidental, fire, and
even though they believed the
fire was out, they didn't call to
have it checked before leaving
the residence."
Any fire inside a building,
no matter how slight, should be
inspected by the fire department
to assure the fire is completely
out.
"Our firefighters carry
specialized thermal imaging
cameras that can detect heat that
might otherwise go unnoticed,"
said Heeder. "It's much better
to call us when there has been a
fire that was extinguished than to
risk a fire reigniting, especially at
night while family members are
sleeping."
Heeder also reminds residents
that a working smoke detector
is critical in case of a home fire.
Firefighters provide and install
smoke detectors at no charge
around the county and can be
obtained by contacting the Office
of Emergency Management via
the j3CEM Facebook page, or by
calling 904-966-6321.

2012 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
PWS# 2040211

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the '
quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable
supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is :
ground water from three wells. The wells draw from the Floridan aquifer. Due to the excellent quality groundwater ,
source, aeration for hydrogen sulfide removal, the addition of Fluoride for dental health and disinfection through
chlorination is the only treatment necessary to produce an excellent quality and aesthetically pleasing product for the
community. We aim to provide the best quality water to you, the customer, at the lowest possible cost.

This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr. Kyle .lerrels at (904) 964-1
7999. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please
attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in
the commission room at the City Hall, 209 N. Thompson St. Starke, FL 32091.

In 2012 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The
assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells.
There are 3 potential sources of contamination identifiedfor this system with a moderate susceptibility level The
assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at "
www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or they can be obtained from the City of Starke.

The City of Starke routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules;,
and regulations. Except witere indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of.,
January I to December 31,. 2012. Data obtained before January 1, 2012, and presented in this report are from the most
recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've,
provided the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set
as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a
water system must follow.

Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.

Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no,
known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.

"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyze to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.

Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyze to I billion parts by weight of the
water sample.

responsible for pratviding high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety ofmaterials used in plumbing components.
When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimmize the potenturtl for lead exposure by flushing youawr tap for 30
seconds to 2 minutes before using waterfor drinking or cooking. Ify ou are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to

The sources ofdrinking water (bothall; la p water and battled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and
wells. As water travels over the surface of the tland or through tie ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some
cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activitty.
C(ontanituuints that may be present in source water Include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which nmay come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural
li'estock operations, and wildlife
(I) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which carn be naturally-oac-urring or result from urban stormsatirer runoj
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gaj production. mining., or farming
(C ) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety ofsources such as agriculture, urban storniualtr runrT. and resudentnal

(iD) Organi chemical contammnants. including synthetic and volatile organic clsmical which are by-produc ts oqfirm 'usor/ roi-le.,
and petroleum production, and can also comc from gas station., urban stormwater runoff and eptic systems
(F) Radioactive contaminants, hitch can be ntuamrally occurring or be the result ofoti and gas production ard mining actl.i'es
In order to ensure that tap water it safe to drink, the EIPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants
*i water provided by public water systems. The ood and Drug Adminastration (FDA) regulation establish limits for
c'ntaminans in bottled water, which must provide the same protect on for public health
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small tamouis't of ilme contaminants

Some people may be mnore vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Imnmunao-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from Infeclions. These
people should seek advice about drinking waterfrontm their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means

/ I am growing a potted tomato
i; plant on my patio. I've noticed
that the lower leaves are yellow.
I'm giving the plant plenty of water, so I
can't figure out what's wrong. What is the
problem, and how can I correct it?
Katie Rowald,
Galveston, Texas
There are a variety of reasons that tomato
foliage can turn yellow. The presence of yellow
leaves does not necessarily mean the plant is
failing. When they are present at the bottom of
the plant, it probably means they aren't getting
enough nutrients from the soil, or possibly
they aren't getting enough sunlight. This isn't
anything to worry about, and is more ,
likely to occur when the plant is mature
and bearing fruit.
You might try adding some plant "
food that is high in nitrogen (the first
number on the fertilizer label). Watch '
and see if the leaves don't green up for
you. Also, check the plant to make sure
you do not have caterpillars or worms f
affecting the health of the plant. If you
do, remove them by hand or use an organic
pesticide.
You indicated that you are giving your
plants plenty of water, but if you weren't
the yellow leaves could be an indication of
insufficient watering. Good luck, and hope you

leafminer. The maggot tunnels just under the
surface of the leaf causing trails that are visible
to the naked eye on the leaves of tomatoes,
peppers and eggplants.
Generally, the leafminer is not a serious
threat. A small wasp, also found in the garden,
is a natural predator of the leafminer and helps
keep their numbers low. Use of insecticidal
S dusts, such as Sevin, can actually cause
i ?, pest populations to increase. Also, any
insecticide utilized can harm beneficial

8A BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 2013


LIVE
Continued from 1A


they met Morrison who owned
a three-bedroom mobile home in
the area. The four men chowed
down on fried chicken, slaw and
rolls from Harvey's Grocery be-
fore bunking down for the night.
During the meal, Morrison
laid out his plan for the next day.
He told the men they were go-
ing after pink mouth grunts, also
known as Florida snapper. Al-
though relatively small, this fish
was not limited by state regula-
tions, and they made for excel-
lent meals. Morrison added that
the party would first try a spot 14
miles out, then continue out to 27
miles to another spot before re-
turning home.
Grant took a seat near the
bow of the vessel as it made its
way west. There was a strong
east wind that propelled the ves-
sel through increasingly larger
waves. Grant recalled that the
ride out was jolting.
The crew had almost reached
their first destination when Mor-
rison said things were getting too
rough. They were going back in.
About 11 miles from shore, the
waves seemed to intensify. Grant
said he has been whitewater raft-
ing on the Colorado River, and
the trip back to Horseshoe Beach
was, turning out to be more thrill-
ing than the Colorado.
He was oblivious to the danger
he and his friends were getting
into. Since he was seated near
the front of the vessel and was
looking forward, he did not see
the buildup of water inside the
craft. Each wave crashing into
the vessel left more and more of
the Gulf in the boat.
He heard DiPaula and Mor-
rison talk about a bilge pump.
Then DiPaula handed him a life
jacket. It'-was too small. Grant
was barely able to fasten the
front of the device by angling it
diagonally across his chest.
The boat then hit three or four
consecutive waves that deluged
the vessel with water. Grant
heard Morrison shout, "Grab a
bucket!" Grant turned around
and was stunned to see the hull
almost full of water. He glanced
down at Harris, who also had a
lifejacket. But Harris had only
slipped an arm through the pre-
server. Grant later said he did not
know if the jacket was too small
or if an old shoulder injury pre-


vented his friend from putting on
the device.
Morrison grabbed the radio
and shouted "Mayday!" three
times. Another wave hit the ves-
sel, and Grant could feel the hull
start to roll. He jumped. Seconds
later all four men were in the wa-
ter, and the vessel's keel was in
the air.
Grant found Harris, who told
him his foot was caught on
something. Grant went below
the surface to free Harris. Sec-
onds later, waves had separated
the two from the capsized craft.
Grant held onto Harris with one
hand and tried to get back to the
boat with the other. He heard
Harris plead, "Help me." Waves
continued to keep the pair away
from the vessel. Grant realized
they had to get back to the boat to
have any chance of surviving. He
then noticed that Harris stopped
moving and had rolled over onto
his back. DiPaula shouted from
the hull, "He's gone."
Grant said he then made a de-
cision that he has replayed over
and over and will continue to
think about for the rest of his
life. He could not make it back to
the hull with Harris. He did not
know if Harris was unconscious,
unresponsive or dead: Grant let
go.
He now estimates that the
time between the capsize and
the point he let Harris go was 30
seconds. He said it all happened
very quickly.
After Grant made his way
back to the boat, the three men
found a rope with one end tied
to the bow. Morrison ordered
DiPaula and Grant to fasten the
other end to the stern, creating a
lifeline running the length of the
vessel along the keel.
Grant said that one decision
saved his. life. He said there is
no way he could have endured
the relentless beating from the
swells without the assistance of
that rope.
He soon discovered that with
the vessel upside down, its gun-
wale, the top edge of the hull,
protruded several inches away
from the boat, giving Grant
enough room to stand on the
edge of the vessel. That is how
he spent the next 23 hours, stand-
ing on the gunwale, gripping the
lifeline, while waves crashed into
him hour after hour. Morrison
took a position on the opposite
side of the bow, hanging onto the
line from the other direction
DiPaula meanwhile found a

folding chair attached to
the stern that, even with
the vessel upside down
he could sit on. From
his position, DiPaula be-
came the steward of the L:**
lifeline, taking up slack Glenn
and reattaching the rope durin
to the stern when it broke even
away.
Since Grant was near City F
the bow and DiPaula
found a place near the stern, the
two men did not communicate
much during the ordeal. Grant
had a much better opportunity to
talk to Morrison. But the former
chief petty officer was not in the
mood to talk. Grant could tell
the captain was struggling. The
63-year-old wore a back brace
and had a heart condition. Be-
cause he was shorter than Grant,
the waves that broke across the
Keystone man's chest hit Mor-
rison in the head. Grant heard
him take in water, then cough it
up. Grant could tell the man was
weakening.
Occasionally, throughout the
afternoon, Morrison would an-
nounce that he was giving up.
Grant responded by trying to en-
gage him.
"Let's talk about something
else," the Keystone man replied.
Grant asked Morrison about
his family. He asked him if he
was going back to work on Mon-
day. At one point, Grant led the

a pacemaker, and it may shock
you."
With one hand, Morrison took
his hat off and handed it over to
Grant. With the other, he let go
of the lifeline and slipped off the
keel.,
DiPaula grabbed Morrison as
the Jacksonville man passed by
the stern.
"Don't give up!" he implored.
"I'm ready to go," Morrison
replied. "Don't stop me." Sec-
onds later he was gone.
Back on shore a friend of Mbr-
rison's who had also been on the
Gulf that day noticed that DiPau-
la's truck was still in the parking
lot at the boat ramp.
Brett Selph had passed the
party about 11 miles from shore.
After seeing the boat and trailer
in the parking lot he boarded his
vessel to search for the men. He
only got two miles out before the
waves forced him back to shore.
He then called the Coast Guard,
but did not have a lot of informa-


tion about the missing vessel and
its passengers. In addition, the
Coast Guard told him their hands
were full. His call was the tenth
the agency had received that eve-
ning about boats in distress.
Grant's wife, Michele, a re-
tired history teacher at Keystone
Heights High School, was ex-
pecting a call from her husband
around 10 p.m. When it did not
come, she started calling him and
got her husband's voicemail. She
called the Coast Guard, which re-
layed to her what Selph had told
the agency. Soon, she was on the
phone with Alice Harris, Glenn
Harris' wife.
After the sun set, a quarter
moon provided some light for the
two survivors, but soon it, too,
slipped under the horizon.
Throughout the night, DiPaula
occasionally checked up on his
friend.
"Tom, how are you?"
The pair checked on each other
with short exchanges, but could
not talk at length because they
were stuck on opposite ends of
the boat and both had lost-some
hearing over the years.
Grant fixated on his four-
week-old grandson, Chase, who
lived in Tallahassee. He told
himself that seeing his grandson
grow up was worth the pain he
felt in his foot, the rope burns on
his hands, the exhaustion and the
relentless punishment from the
waves.
He prayed. He made promises
to God. He tried to recall com-
forting passages of scripture. He
recalled a story in the Bible when
the disciples were caught in a
storm. They were saved when
Jesus walked on the water and
calmed the sea. Grant concluded
he was unlikely to be rescued in
a similar manner.
He started thinking about his
funeral. Who would-give the eu-
logy? Would. anyone have any-
thing nice to say about him? A
lot of people would have a lot of
nice things to say about Glenn.
Glenn spent a lifetime investing
his life into others. Grant has a
photograph of himself and Harris
.coaching a little league baseball
team.
He wondered if his life insur-
ance would pay double since he
died in an accident. Would Mi-
chele be able to make it on the
income? He was thankful that
he had taken the time to arrange
paperwork for her in the event of
his passing.
Sometime during the night a


helicopter hovered nearby and
flashed a searchlight into the wa-
ter. The light hit the boat, and the
men thought they were saved.
But soon the aircraft flew off.
About 30 minutes before sun-
rise, DiPaula said he saw two
shrimp boats in the distance. The
two men shouted and waved their
arms, but it was hopeless. The
swells masked their location.
Around 8:30 Sunday morn-
ing the men saw a Coast Guard
C-130 aircraft. It flew by, then
circled around and dropped a life
raft. The float was too far away
for the men to reach, but they
knew they would be saved. Grant
started to cry.
Thirty minutes later, the pair
saw a boat approaching them. It
was a Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission boat.
Two game wardens on the boat
hauled Grant and DiPaula into
the vessel. Their ordeal was over.
During the trip back, the waves
continued to rock the rescue ves-
sel. Grant started to worry a little
when he saw water accumulating
in the boat. One of the wardens
assured him the boat could han-
dle the weather.
Grant reflected on how he
survived. The little things mat-
tered. His pair of New Balance
shoes sustained his feet while he
stood for nearly 24 hours. The
Florida Lottery strap that held
his Ray-Bans around his neck
kept the sunglasses within reach
to protect his eyes from the sun
and salt water. The life jacket Di-
Paula gave him right before the
capsize was critical. As the boat
.approached the boat ramp, Grant
could make out two women in
the distance. He had never seen
them before.
Morrison's wife and daughter
were waiting as the FWC boat
arrived back at the launch. The
pair had heard Coast Guard ra-
dio transmissions that two survi-
vors were found, but they did not
know which of the men made it
through the night.
As the boat neared the land-
ing, Morrison's daughter mis-
takenly thought Grant was her
own father. As the two women
walked closer, they realized it
was not Tom Morrison in the
boat but Tom Grant. Morrison's
wife made her way to the vessel,
found Grant and asked, "Where's
my Tom?"
Grant looked at her and shook
his head. She broke down weep-
ing.

Tuskegee Airman talks to Starke

Kiwanians of service, faith


BY CLIFFSNISMI .1 1:Y
Region l,\ .. -. '.rits Editor

Stephen l .awrence went
from unwilling serviceman to
American hero. yetl the Alachua
County resident insists there was
nothing heroic about what he did.
The 91-year-old Alachua
County resident is a part of
history as one of the famed
Tuskegee Airmen. He shared
his experience with the Kiwanis
Club of Starke on June 4, but
seemed more at ease talking
about his life of faith after his
military service.
"No, I'm not a hero," Lawrence
said. "I'm a hero over the enemy,
who is Satan. Ah, that's where
I'm a hero, and where some of
you all are heroes."
"Tuskegee Airmen" is a term
that includes all those who
took part in what was termed
an "experiment." An Army
Air Corps program, based in
Tuskegee, Ala., was created in
1941 to train African-Americans
to fly and maintain combat
aircraft as part of the 99" Pursuit
Squadron. The group included
pilots, navigators, bombardiers
and maintenance and support
staff.
Lawrence was a mechanic.
"I was sent to school in
Wichita Falls, Texas, to learn
how to work on planes, which
Swas easy," Lawrence said. "The
Lord gave me a brain."
Yet during that time of
segregation, many white
Americans would not have
thought it was so "easy" for
Lawrence and other African-
Americans to make serious
military contributions. Prior to
1940, Africani-Americans were
prevented from flying for the


Stephen Lawrence


U.S. military.
"The Tuskegee Airmen had to
prove themselves, prove that they
had the ability," Lawrence said.
"They called it an experiment. I
called it an experience."
Lawrence, who grew up in
Pennsylvania and who was
working as a welder, had no
desire to join the military. A
group of his friends volunteered
for service after the U.S. entered
World War II. He asked them
what their jobs in the military
were. They replied with such
tasks as changing bed sheets and
cleaning toilets.
"Why would I want to go into
the military doing something like
that? I was against going into the
military," Lawrence said. "Do
you get it? It was segregated. I
didn't fit into it."
The way Lawrence viewed
things, he was the same. as any
other person. Only the color of
his skin was different.
"I don't think God put me in
this world to be separated from
other people if we have the same
equipment," he said.


Lawrence was eventually
drafted in 1943, though he never
left the U.S.
"I did not go overseas," he
said. "I stayed right there (in
Tuskegee), working with kids
learning how to fly planes."
If Lawrence and the other
African-Americans who trained
and worked in Tuskegee didn't
. realize the discrimination they
would face, they were reminded
of it by Lt. Col. Benjamin 0.
Davis, who was the commander
of the 991h Squadron and a
graduate of West Point.
"He had been at West Point
for four years," Lawrence said.
"He received the silent treatment
for four years. Do you know
what the silent treatment is? The
silent treatment is you stay in
your room by yourself, you eat
by yourself and the only way
you were addressed was (in an
official manner)."
Segregation proved a "hard
row to hoe," Lawrence said.
However, that was the reality
of life at that time. That's why
he doesn't view himself as a
hero for simply being one of the
Tuskegee Airmen.
"My experience was
survival-not being a hero," he
said.
The Tuskegee Airmen received
the Hollywood treatment with
the release of "Red Tails" in
2012. Lawrence said the movie
didn't do as good a job depicting
what the airmen went through
as the 1995 HBO movie "The
Tuskegee Airmen."
"You need to tell the real
story of how we were treated,"
Lawrence said. "I think the
first (movie) that came out was
a good one, but 'Red Tails'
dropped the ball."

Getting

the royal

treatment
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Purple is considered a royal
color.
With that in mind, the Arc of
Bradford County consumers are
treated like kings and queens
every June with the celebration
of Purple Day.
It's a day of fun and games,
including getting the opportunity
to drop Arc employee Tony
Sellars into a dunk tank and-for
the first time this year-getting
a close-up look at snakes and
other critters, courtesy of Devin
Wheeler.
. The highlight of the day is the
presentation of unique certificates
to each consumer, recognizing
each individual's special trait,
whether it's for being the best
dancer, card maker or thrift store
employee, or excelling at a skill
in the facility's wood shop.
Consumer Richard Miller was
awarded with the '"Best Smile"
certificate, but there were plenty
of smiles to go around on Purple
Day.

2B TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR B SECTION THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 2013


The dredging of the Sampson Lake boat ramp/canal should be completed this week.

Bradford County boat ramp

projects are nearing completion


BY TRACY LEE TATE
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor
Boating season is in full swing
and work currently underway
at two boat ramps in Bradford
County will soon provide lake
goers with safer and easier access
to their chosen recreation areas.
The project at the Hampton
Lake boat ramp is a county-
funded effort aimed at improving
the usability of the ramp. An
invitation for bids was issued by
the Bradford County Commission
in May 2012, with the bid being
awarded three months later
-to D & L Contracting LLC of
Suwannee.
Work called for included the
removal of the existing ramp
and its accouterments, including
inappropriate base materials
'and the construction of a new
ramp, which meets the Florida
-Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's I(FWC)
guidelines. The successful bid
for this work was $42,994.26.
After the required design work
for the project the contractor
requested a change order allowing
for additional work. This work
entailed the extension of the boat
Sramp slab an additional 25 feet
to span a dip in the pavement
Sat the site and the addition of
Safety measures such as a timber
curb and the reinforcement of
the existing aluminum dock on
the south side of the ramp. The
cost of this change order totaled
$12,477.07, bringing the project
total to $55,471.33.
The Hampton Lake project is in
its final stages, with completion
likely in the next two weeks.
A more involved project is
underway at the Sampson Lake
boat ramp, although the focus of
Sthe work. is not the ramp itself but
Sthe canal which allows access to
Sthe lake.
According to Eddie Leonard,
a biological scientist, with
FWC Division of Fresh Water
Fisheries, there are two aspects of
Sthe project currently underway.
"The problems with the canal
came to our attention because of
recurring hazards to navigation
Created by the buildup of
sediment at the two turns the
canal makes on its way to the.
take, as well as at the entrance
to the lake itself," Leonard said.
"Once we started looking at the

there were also wildlifehabitat
aspects fo the problem as well."

Leonard. explained that the
goal of the project was to reduce
the buildup of sediment in the
canal through dredging, handled
by Gator Dredging Corp. Not
only will this clear navigational
hazards but will also clear
barriers to fish migration between
Sampson Lake and Lake Rowell.
"The problem is created by
the progression of sediment
from Alligator Creek into Lake
Rowell and then on into the canal
and eventually Sampson Lake,"
Leonard said. "This influx of
sediment is further' augmented
by sediment washing into the
canal from the boat ramp parking
area."
Leonard said that another
project underway in the county
under the auspices of FWC is the
Edwards Bottom Land Project.
This project is based on Alligator
Creek behind Tractor Supply and
is a joint effort with the city of
Starke.
Apparently, in the past,
Alligator Creek has been
channelized,, creating a bank
structure prone to erosion. The
project is focused on blocking
the creek and thus allowing it to
divert into what is its historic
channel. Once this has been
achieved a sediment box will be
created to catch garbage, sand
and other materials to prevent
their journey to Lake Rowell and
on to Sampson Lake. The city
will then maintain the box and
occasionally clean out the creek
bed as needed.


For more information
for cheering, call Coach
Dana Britt at
904-364-3268
Cheer cost is $150 and
includes cheer uniform,
shoes andpom poms.


The dredging project at
Sampson Lake will clear the
channel to a depth of about four
feet, entailing the removal of up
to three feet of sediment in areas
of the heaviest buildup. The
goal is to improve the safety of
navigation in the channel, as
well as to slow the buildup of
sediment in the lake itself by
creating a filling effect in the
sediment entering the channel.
It will also allow free movement
for fish between Sampson and
Rowell lakes.
FWC is funding the dredging
aspect of the project, with a
budget of between $50,000
and $55,000. The county is
providing the transportation of
the dredged material to the New
River Solid Waste Association
landfill, which has agreed to
accept it as cover dirt.
"People have said we should
have made better use of the fill
in various projects, but the time
frame within which we had to
work did not allow for this,"
Leonard said. "We had a limited
time in which to access the funds
and had -to move as quickly as
possible, securing Department
of Environmental Protection
approvals for taking the fill to the
single location."
This approval process added
and additional $2,500 to the total
cost of the project to FWC.
The dredging project is
drawing to a close, with the boat
ramp scheduled to reopen on
Friday, June 21.

FSP's Godwin, McDonald named top Florida DOC employees


Florida State Prison had two
of its employees selected as the
top performers in the state in
their respective fields.
Shawn Godwin of Raiford is
the administrative assistant for
FSP Warden John Palmer. She


was named as the DOC 2013
Support Employee of the Year.
Jenny McDonald of La'wteN is
part of the inmate education
system at FSP and was named
as the DOC 2013 teacherr of the
Year.


(L-R) Secretary of the Department of Corrections
Michael Crews, Deputy Asst. Secretary of
Administration Michelle Pyle, FSP Administrative
Asst. Shawn Godwin, Deputy Secretary of Corrections
Timothy Cannon and FSP Warden John Palmer.


Godwin has worked for DOC
for 23 years and has been at FSP
since June of 2011.
As the staff assistant for
the warden, Godwin has a lot
of responsibilities that range
through a wide variety of
tasks. FSP's mission includes
providing custody, care and
control of inmates whose
custody levels range from Death
Row, to maximum management,
to close management to open
population. Godwin must have
expertise in dealing with unique
issues that arise from all of those
custody levels.
Palmer characterizes Godwin
as his right-hand person who
assists him in managing all
aspects of his schedule-
ensuring appointments are made
well in advance of deadlines and
ensuring that all deadlines are
met.
"Shawn (Godwin) goes above
and beyond in the performance
of her duties and displays a
level of loyalty that is second to


none," Palmer said.
Because of FSP's size and
unique mission, Godwin has to
deal with the governor's office,
the general public, attorneys and
the media at a volume that is not
experienced at other institutions.
"Shawn always handles
stressful situations with the
utmost professionalism," Palmer
said. "She often receives praise
from those who interact with
her because of these exceptional
qualities."
Godwin is also characterized
as a person who takes great pride
in her work, who pays attention
to detail and is persistent in her
efforts in dealing with every
task.
Palmer said his nomination
of Godwin for the statewide
award did not arise from a
single incident, but from
the exceptional qualities she
displays throughout her work
life.
McDonald has worked
for DOC for 8.5 years and

'It takes a
village to
raise a child'
proven true

at Southside
Dear Editor:
You know the saying, "It takes
a village to raise a child?"As this
school year comes to a close,
we would like to acknowledge
some of these other "villagers"
who helped provide student
mentoring this year at Southside
Elementary.
The first one is the TALKS
Leadership Program coordinated
by Pastor McKnight and Pastor
Ramseur from the Church of
God by Faith. This program
brought us seven adults who
are community or business
leaders to each mentor a group of
three students every week. The
positive, personal relationships
these mentors were able to build
with these students not only
resulted in improved academic
performance and behavior, but
also increased the students'
ability to deal with life issues
such as conflict resolution and
positive social interaction.
TALKS also had programs at
other Bradford County schools,
and as they enter a second year
of the program, I hope that more
mentors are able to come and
make a difference:
The other program is our
BUG program sponsored by the
Kiwanis Club of Starke. BUG
stands for Bringing Up Grades
and acknowledges the efforts of
students who bring up one or
more grades throughout the year.
As part of the program, students
from the Beta Club and National
Honor Society at Bradford High
School came once a month to
mentor students in every grade
level. Our students looked
forward to sharing their success
and reading to their high school
buddy every time they came.
The high school students who
were able to participate were
wonderful role models, and vwe
thank each and every one of
them for the time they took to
make a difference. Thank you
to Cynthia Combs, the faculty
sponsor at BHS, and also to
Rick Stephens, BHS Principal,
and Louette Smith from district
transportation for helping to
make this important program a
success. And a special thank you
to Sherry Ruszkowski from the
Kiwanis Club for bringing this
program to us.
Supreme Court Associate
Chief Justice Sonya Sotomayor
said "a role model in the flesh
provides more than inspiration;
'his or her very existence is
confirifiation of possibilities one
may have every reason to doubt,
saying, "'Ys, someone like me
Scan do this.'"
Thank you again to everyone
who supported mentoring at
Southside this past year. I would
encourage those who can to
consider getting involved in these
or other mentoring programs


and provide our chi

Paper makes
sense

Dear Editor:
Recently,. it has become
fashionable to disparage the use
of paper in favor of electronic
devices and transmittals. Like
a lot of fashions, this makes no
sense.
The premise of anti-paper
campaigns' is that paper is
bad for the environment and
unnecessarily consumes vital
natural resources. In reality, using
paper and other forest products
provides environmental benefits
that electronics cannot match.
Paper comes from trees, which
are a renewable resource. When
trees are cut down to make paper,
more are planted and grown to
take their place. Through this
cycle, working forests provide
habitat for wildlife, recharge
areas for clean water and create
a natural process for removing
carbon from the air.
The electronic alternatives
being pushed to replace paper are
not as environmentally friendly
as their supporters would have
you believe. Science of the Total
Environment, an international
research journal, estimates
that discarded devices create
approximately 50 million tons of
electronic waste each year. These
products contain a variety of non-
renewable materials that are not
only harmful to the environment,
but also to the people living in
the areas where they are dumped.
The United States
Environmental Protection
Agency reports that only 8
.percent of mobile devices are
recycled. The rate for recycling
computers is 38 percent. The rate
for recycling paper? More than
63 percent.
Recycled paper fills a variety
of needs. Among others things,
it is used to make dollar bills.
This is especially appropriate
considering the forest industry's
$14.7 billion impact to our state's
economy. In addition to the many
environmental benefits, working
forests also provide jobs to
90,000 Floridians.
The connection between the
environmental benefits and the
economic impact cannot be
*emphasized enough. Sustainable
forests are not free; proper land
management costs money. Our

government cannot afford to own
or maintain all the forestland
that is needed for environmental
purposes or public use.
Without the forest industry,
private landowners cannot
afford to either. The market
for forest products is a key
element in the ability to
maintain forestlands. Without
a demand for wood from mills
and other forest product users,
working forests would have to
be converted to more profitable
crops or to neighborhoods. As
Florida becomes more and more
urbanized, the pressure to grow
houses instead of trees continues
to intensify.
Like all of us, forests must


work if they are going to survive.
By buying and using paper and
other forest products, consumers
help maintain the health and
sustainability of working forests.
In turn, working forests help
maintain a healthy environment
and strengthen the economy.
Anti-paper campaigns might
be trendy right now, but the truth
is that working forests were
"green" long before green was
in fashion.

Bradford Parents Athletic Association enjoys 1st-year success


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
"Play ball!"
The anticipation, the buildup,
the excitement-it all leads up to
hearing those words that signify


the start of the game. For Brad
Chapman, they "brought a sense
of relief in regard to opening day
of the Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth
baseball and softball season.
"I was so nervous, I couldn't
eat that morning," Chapman said.

(Chapman is the president of
the Bradford Parents Athletic
Association, which, as its name
suggests, is a group of parents
who decided to take on the
responsibility of ensuring that the
children of Bradford County had
recreational sports opportunities.
The work began before that
opening day of March 9 rolled
around, but the start of games,
in essence, made the group's
mission a reality. Chapman said
as he watched a child throw the
first ceremonial pitch, he sat back
and said to himself, "Awesome."
Though the spring season
isn't technically in the books
with all-star play now underway,
Chapman can look back and say
the season was a success.
"I' think things went really
well," Cook said. "We had quite
a few sign-ups-a lot more than
we expected. Overall, we didn't
have a whole lot of complaints.
Everybody seemed happier this
year."
The recreation program in
Starke has been in a transitional
phase the last couple of years.
In 2011, city of Starke officials
determined they could no longer
afford to operate the program.
Cassels Christian Academy took
the program over and operated
it for a year before the Bradford
Parents Athletic Association
assumed control.
Therefore, it was a bit of a
surprise that approximately 300
children signed up to play in the
spring. Cook said she thought
having 200 children participate
would be a good year.
Chapman said he saw children
participate this year who have
been playing in other counties
in the past. That's one of the
organization's goals-to make
it so local families don't want to
take their children elsewhere.
"My hope would be for every
child who is age eligible to
play here in Bradford County,"
Chapman said.
Members of the organization
would not only like to see

wnorm atio


Bradford County children play
in Bradford County, hut to see
a family atmosphere return
to the ball fields. Trish Cook,
the Bradford Parents Athletic
Association treasurer, said
she remembers growing up in
Brooker and 'seeing 150 to 200
people attending youth baseball
and softball games.
As an adult, Cook has seen
families drop their children off at
the ball park, then leave to go eat
at a restaurant. Many don't stick
around at the ballpark while the
kids are playing.
In an attempt to get more
people to stay, the Bradford
Parents Athletic Association
expanded the food offerings in
the concessions stand. Cook said
the organization underestimated
just how popular that would
be. Shopping trips to stock the
concessions stand became more
frequent and larger in scale.
By the end of the season,
more families were involved.
Volunteers stepped forward
to offer their services, plus a
closing ceremony/family fun
day proved to be so much fun
that people didn't want it to end,
Chapman said.
"We almost had to tell people,
'OK, it's time to leave.' They
were having a blast during that
closing ceremony," Chapman
said.
Meeting the. demands of
increased concessions stand
sales and creating team schedules
to accommodate approximately
300 children was a lot of work,
but no one in the Bradford
Parents Athletic Association is
complaining.
"The work is hard for us, and
it's a time commitment for us to
keep up with," Cook said, "but I
think we saw a really, really good
indication of what can happen
if we continue to maintain (the
program)."
Chapman said he knew he and
the other organization members
could successfully operate a
recreation program. Talking
to members of other parent-
run organizations in Keystone
Heights, Union County,
Alachua County and other areas
reinforced that belief.
"We knew if they could do it,
we could do it,",Chapman said.
That didn't mean there
weren't any anxious times in
the beginning. Cook said the
year began with organization
members putting expenses
on their personal credit cards
just to get the program up and
running. The key was generating
revenue to sustain the program
throughout the season.
"You're really going week to
week flying by the seat of your


themselves:' she said.
Hartman said that, as an
educator, it was a "joyous
occasion" to encounter an
individual of McDonald's
caliber. She said McDonald
has shown she is more than
able to guide students who are
capable, yet hesitant to believe
in themselves-especially in a
correctional setting.
"Mrs. McDonald does this on

pants, trying to make sure the
concessions stand is producing
enough money, we've purchased
enough baseballs, purchased
enough softballs, scheduled all
the umpires we need and paying
those umpires."
Chapman said when
organization members took a
close look at what the costs of
electricity at the park could be,
it was uncertain if they could
"keep our heads above water."
"We had so much help
from the county and the city,"
Chapman said. "The city took
over the light bill for the year.
The county gave a large-sum
donation. Thank God."
Through it all, games and
tournaments were successfully
played. Chapman said most
teams played approximately
20 games, noting the team
he coached last year played
approximately 14.
Starke hosted a rookie
tournament and a T-ball
tournament. The Bradford
Parents Athletic Association
made sure every child who
played in those tournaments.
received medallions, while
teams received trophies.
"We had a lot of out-of-town
teams come over this year, and
they were really impressed with
the organization as a whole,"
Chapman said.
As members of the Bradford
Parents Athletic Association
start to now focus on registration
for adult/church league softball,
they also cast an eye to the
future. Chapman said making
improvements to the ball fields
and park are goals. He cited
examples such as adding batting
cages, using better clay for the
infields, purchasing equipment
to better maintain the fields
and building new concessions
stands.
"We know it's years down
the road:" Chapman said, "but
it gives us something to look
forward to and build upon."
Cook said the organization has
been approached about offering


her students and herself, Mrs.
McDonald has demonstrated
that-with the right attitude and
use of instructional strategies-
anything is possible," Hartman
said.
"In a setting where one is
confined to a cell for the majority
of the day, her students have
developed a love of learning
and, more importantly, now
have goals and 'expectations for

soccer, which is a possibility.
"If we can find the knowledge
base out there and folks who
understand it, we'll take a look
at it," Cook said.
Witnessing the success of
this past Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth
season and envisioning a better
future have made the efforts of
the Bradford Parents Athletic
Association worth it. When
asked if there was one thing
he would change after looking
back on how the organization's
inaugural spring season went,
Chapman replied, "The only
thing I would've done differently
would have been to try and get
this five years ago."
Joining Chapman and Cook
as officers are Chris Olive (vice
president) and Sheila Evans
and Julie Martin (secretaries).
The organization's board
consists of: Heather Chapman
(concessions director), Todd
Gainey and Kevin Crawford
(fields and maintenance),
Kevin Blankenship (softball
commissioner) and Regina
Gainey and Julie Morrow
(softball members).

a daily basis," Hartman said.
McDonald's skills as an
educator and her encouraging
demeanor have led her students
to view their incarceration
as something more than a
completely negative impact on
their lives. With the skills and
change of attitude McDonald
taught her students, "They may
just make the world a better
place," Hartman said.

results
As we continue marching
toward the hottest part of the
summer, our local lakes will
become a more attractive
recreational alternative. The
dredge work on. the Sampson
canal should be completed by
Thursday, June 20. Additionally,
the work on the Hampton boat
ramp should be completed soon.
Do not forget Lake Palestine
and Lake Butler in Union
County, Kingsley Lake and the
Keystone lakes atop Trail Ridge.
Protect yourself and the kids
from the sun and remember dusk
and dawn as good fishing times.

Billy Belote's family
outing
Billy Belote has lived in

V,' . .


Billy Belote and his
grandson Elijah Mize
show off a nice catch.

Keystone since childhood, but
he attended Bradford High
School, in the late '60s, where he
was a great football performer at
quarterback. When his nephew
Zach Wilson and Zach's
two sons, Gabe and Kirrin,
approached him about a fishing
location, he had the perfect place
in mind: a small, undisclosed
(of course) Keystone lake that
has held its water level over
time. Shortly afterward, Zach,
along with Gabe and Kirrin,
met up with Belote and his two
grandsons, Caleb Mize, 8, and
Elijah Mize, 4, for an afternoon
of fishing.
From the beginning, the kids
did wetl, catching small panfish
until an intrusive approach by
a large bass, which attempted
to take their catch. Belote
subsequently changed strategies,
attaching a larger hook, putting
the recent catch on the hook and

returning it to the water under a
bobber. Afterward, he gave the
rod to Caleb with instructions
for letting the fish run and
setting the hook. After walking
off a few yards, Belote heard
Caleb scream in excitement
about hooking a big one. Belote
quickly returned to observe
what he described as an exciting
play with jumps, stripped
line, patience and, finally, the
lunker catch pictured in the
accompanying photo.
Success really breeds success
in this case. The same routine
was followed a second time, and
Elijah was able to experience
the same excitement. After that,
Gabe, too was able to land a nice
trophy.
Kirrin followed the same
process and did hook what
appeared to be the largest bass
of the day, but with an exciting
head-shaking jump, it came
unbuttoned.
All fish were photographed
and released unharmed for a
future replay.
On the way home Caleb said,
"Pa Pa Bill, that was the best
day ever." With that statement,
Caleb probably summarized
more family fishing trips than
he realized that have created
unforgettable memories.

Best bet for fishing
On. the freshwater front, the
only good time left this year
to catch shellcrackers while
bedding might by during the
full moon in the latter part of
the month. These fish are larger
than bluegills, and they pull
harder than any other freshwater
panfish, including the larger
crappies.
Bass fishing is already more
successful at dawn and dusk, and
look for offshore, underwater
structure, which will provide
them a cooler habitat.
Bluegills will be available
anytime. Just keep your nose to
the air and follow the pungent
smell of spawning fish.
The catfish bite in the St.
Johns River remains active to
this date.
The saltwater scene will be
more active at early and late
times, but the feeding times
or tidal changes will have a
greater impact on the fish bite,
regardless of the time of day.
Bob McNally of the Times-
Union indicates that trout are
most active at night under the
dock lights in the St Johns.
Trout, flounder and reds
will be available through the
summer, but will be better early
andc late.
Kingfish love warm water,
