Happy New Year BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A Christmas morning fire damaged a home in eastern Bradford County. County dispatchers sent emergency medical workers and firefighters to Northeast 156 th Street at 9:36 a.m. According to Emergency Management Director Brian Johns, Starke Fire-Rescue personnel arrived shortly after a county emergency medical crew. The occupants of the home and their pets had already left the structure. There were no injuries. Johns said the Starke crew quickly extinguished the fire in the back of the home, but had some difficulty getting to flames between the ceiling and roof because the home had no attic. One of the homes occupants, Kathy DeVoe, said she and her sister live in the home. She originally thought a candle was to blame for the fire, but an investigator later determined it was an overheated surge protector. There were no candles burning whatsoever, said DeVoes sister, Kathy Long. Long added that when she first detected smoke in the house, she was preparing food for a family gathering and first thought the smoke was coming from the stove. She then shouted for DeVoe to check other parts of the house and the pair soon found a small fire in DeVoes bedroom. We tried to smother it out but we couldnt, Long recalled. It kept getting bigger. Long said after the flames continued to spread, the two women abandoned their attempts to put out the fire, called 911 and evacuated their pets from the structure. A website has been set up to help the sisters. To provide a secure donation through PayPal, go to www.youcaring. com/helpkathys. As of Monday afternoon, more than $1,000 of the $10,000 goal had been raised. According to the site, the sisters escaped from the house with their pets, purses and the pajamas they were wearing. Robbery, carjacking suspect crashes near Raiford BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A Bradford County deputy pursued a robbery and carjacking suspect from the Hampton area through Starke and into Union County until the suspect crashed the vehicle at the intersection of S.R. 16 and S.R. 121 near Raiford. According to Alachua County Sheriffs spokesperson Art Forgey, the suspect, Jamal Demante Keshune Ross, 21, of Ocala stole gasoline, a phone charger, water and cash from a convenience store north of Ocala around 2 a.m. Saturday morning. Forgey told the Gainesville Sun that Ross drove the four-door, maroon vehicle he used to escape the robbery scene into Alachua County. He then rammed the vehicle into a black Chevrolet Equinox, forced the family that was in the SUV out of the vehicle and then drove off in the Chevrolet. Around 2:41 a.m., a Bradford dispatcher issued an alert for a 30-year-old black male driving a black Chevrolet Equinox. The dispatcher said the man was a suspect in a carjacking and might be armed. Bradford County Sheriffs Capt. Brad Smith said Waldo Police spotted the suspect and pursued him to the Bradford County line. At that point, Deputy James Albritton began following the suspect and Waldo police broke off their pursuit. Albritton reported the suspect was traveling 105 mph. He followed the SUV into Starke where police joined the pursuit. After the suspect turned off U.S. 301 and onto S.R. 16 west toward Florida State Prison, Albritton told dispatchers that the Equinox nearly crashed into oncoming traffic several times. He added that the Chevy reached a speed of 115 mph. Once inside Union County, S.R. 16 dead ends into S.R. 121 about a mile north of Raiford. The intersection is well-known for traffic crashes with motorists traveling westbound on S.R. 16 frequently failing to yield to the stop sign at 121 and either colliding with traffic on S.R. 121 or running into trees beyond the intersection. The suspect in the Equinox plowed into the tree line beyond the road junction. Following the crash, the vehicle caught fire. Firefighters from Heilbron Springs, Lawtey and Union County responded to the scene, and Ross was treated by Bradford and Union County emergency medical workers for a broken femur. He was transported to UF Health where Alachua County deputies were to meet the ambulance. In an email to the Monitor, Forgey said Ross underwent surgery later Saturday morning for injuries sustained in the crash. The following day, Alachua deputies charged the 21-year-old with carjacking and with aggravated battery. Growth begins to show BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Have signs of economic improvement begun to show in local building projects and real estate sales? To some extent, they have. There were more homes and commercial projects permitted in 2013, and property sales also increased. Twenty-seven new single-family homes were permitted in Bradford County, including three in the city of Starke. This surpasses the 23 permitted last year, and even more so when you consider that a number of 2012s homes were grant-funded replacements and not representative of new growth. Many of the homes permitted hovered around the estimated construction cost of $150,000, although one permitted in Starke was listed with a cost exceeding $230,000. New mobile home installations still outpaced new home construction. There were 45 in 2013 compared to 42 in 2012, plus 10 mobile home replacements. The permit report obtained from the Bradford County Building and Zoning office also listed three modular homes, with costs ranging from $97,000 up to more than $181,000. Commercial construction permits numbered 19, although eight were mini storage buildings placed in Starke by businessman John Curles, who also plans on opening an Internet caf and amusement parlor in his strip mall on the south end of town. One of the only new commercial buildings representing a new business is the restaurant being constructed at the corner of S.R. 100 and C.R. 21B between Starke and Keystone Heights. Tom and Kathie Perryman, owners of Country Caterers, are opening the new barbecue joint, Toms Real Pit BBQ. According to the sign, they plan on opening this month. More seems to be going on in food service than anything else. While

Chrissys moved from Thompson Street across the railroad tracks to the former Whale Tales building and then reopened as the Downtown Grill. Then Mamma Mias took up residence in Chrissys old place, becoming Tony and Als Deli. That left space at Mamma Mias for the Prevatt family to open a Starke version of their Middleburg sports bar. Dickeys opened out by Walmart, selling barbecue in the former Whataburger building. Moonshiners opened after a longer-than-expected renovation of the former Cowboys restaurant. A Mexican restaurant, El San Jose, has just opened in the strip mall just north of IHOP. A China Buffet returned to Bradford Square, but another Chinese/Japanese restaurant, this one with a drivethrough concept, opened and closed shortly thereafter in the former Checkers building. With Wendys unexpected closing a few weeks ago, there are at least two empty fast food spaces in town. Goodys opened up a clothing retail store in a renovated anchor spot at Bradford Square. Savea-Lot also plans to return to Starke, but will be setting up shop in the Deerfoot Shopping Center next to Tractor Supply Company. Lending Bear took over the former ABC liquor site following renovations there. The Starke City Commission approved a site plan for a new business at U.S. 301 and Market Road, but construction permits have not been pulled on that project yet. While the site plan was approved, the actual identity of the rumored discount retailer officially remains a mystery. Judging by the permit list, Mark and Dawn Stricklands Home Sweet Bone, a pet boarding business on Edwards Road, was the only other new business requiring new construction. That is not to say there wasnt other commercial building activity. Both D. Mosley Trucking and Jim Lawrence Transportation permitted new metal buildings. Murray Ford permitted an automobile service building and customer lounge. The Salvation Army continues work on its camp, including repairs to a dining hall damaged by fire in 2013. The hospital received some internal renovations, and Griffin Industries added an employeecentered facility with a break room, showers, etc. In the final days of 2013, the county pulled a permit to construct a new animal control facility on property it already owns behind the solid waste collection site on Southwest 75 th Avenue. The county also completed roofing and remodeling work at the courthouse, Starke EMS station and jail. Brooker pulled a permit last January for work in its water plant. Churches were pulling permits last year, too, the most extensive one apparently belonging to New Bethel Baptist, which is constructing a new building. Property sales were up in Bradford County. A sales report generated on Dec. 30 showed 152 property transactions in 2013, compared to 113 in 2012. The vast majority were singlefamily homes. Sales totaled $15.25 million, which is more than $5 million more than 2012. The most acreage sold at once was the 109 acres of agricultural land on Northwest 198 th Street Plum Creek sold to Len and Donna Eaves. The highest dollar transaction, however, was a single-family home on Lake Santa Fe that sold for $690,000. The property a few doors down sold for $585,000. Among commercial sales, the former ABC property where the Lending Bear located sold for $425,000. The apartment complex on Brownlee Road, which has also undergone some renovations, sold for $600,000. Continued from 1A Starke approves property cleanup BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The city of Starke matters into its own hands to deal with messy property owners. What to do when a property owner wont remedy code enforcement problemeven after being cited and fined and having a lien attached to their propertyhas been a problem for the city for a while. Commissioners have now approved an ordinance that will allow the city to clean up nuisance properties and charge the cost back to the property owner. Of course, a property owner who hasnt paid a fine isnt going to pay a landscaping bill, but the cost would be added to the charges against the property, and the nuisance will be taken care of. Affected citizens can petition the city commission to declare a parcel a nuisance property so that corrective action can be taken. There must be a history of violation on the property, including a lien at least six months old, stemming from prior citations. The petitioning party must be personally adversely affected by the code violation, and the city has to be able to develop a reasonable plan to correct the problem. There must be funding available to do so. Later, the property owner can petition to have the parcels nuisance designation removed, but not without evidence that the condition has been corrected and all code enforcement liens and fines have been paid. Until that time, the code enforcement officerand any designated employees and volunteers with himwill have the authority to enter the property and deal with code violations. Healthy Families helps parents BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor The New Year is a great time to get off to a good start and the Healthy Families program can help you do just that. Offered by the University of Florida, Healthy Families Alachua is a free, voluntary support program for expecting and new parents. It is designed to promote positive parent-child interaction and healthy childhood growth and development. Started in Alachua County and now available to Union and Bradford County residents, its not just for the poor, according to Sally Johnson, family support worker for Healthy Families ACUB. Its to help babies get a good start and help develop their brains early, she said. Parents can enroll while expecting and for children up to three months of age. Services are then offered to families for up to five years, with the intensity of service based on the familys needs. Trained family workers offer weekly home visits and help parents manage the stressors of being a new parent, provide support in parenting and encourage parents in achieving personal and family goals. It is designed for growing great kids, Johnson said. The program is sponsored in partnership with Ounce of Prevention Fund of Florida and the Florida Department of Children and Families.

Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 3A Literacy focus of new high school event BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor In December, Bradford High School freshmen and sophomores had a new and exciting opportunity to participate in the schools firstever literacy fair. The concept is similar to the science fair that most students participated in at the middle school. Here, however, the project is not based on a scientific experiment but on an in depth study of a novel. Like the science fair, students choose their own projects and prepare presentations on what they learn. Teacher Lindley Adkins said the projects tested the students comprehension of what they read and allowed them to reflect on the development of the characters they were reading about. The literacy fair, held in the school media center, was the culmination of work that began in October and included the entire freshman and sophomore classes. The best of the best got to come here today, Adkins said. Project boards prepared by the students displayed a variety of information, from story synopses and analyses to original character illustrations and meaningful quotations from the material. They were also required to prepare papers on how their characters journeys related to the human condition. Mr. Boyer, the principal, actually brought the idea to us. He wanted to implement this in the school to get our kids reading, said Adkins. Teachers reviewed the book selections to make sure they were on grade level, but otherwise, the selection was up to the students. We wanted to inspire them to read. We wanted to create a love of reading with this. As judges circled the room and spoke to students, she said the students goal was to convince the judges their book was worth reading. The fiction chosen included popular novels like The Hunger Games, and classics like Uncle Toms Cabin, perennial favorites like The Hobbit, and lesser known works like Speak, which Malaysia Hall explained carried a powerful message about the psychological trauma of bullying and violence. The works were adventurous and full of fantasy, or dealt with weighty topics like race and recovering from rape. Students found the experience challenging but worth it. It was a confusing book, but I was glad I chose it, said Carson Elder of Beautiful Lies, a crime story unlike the stories she usually reads. I thought it was a great opportunity because without it I never would have found this great book. I mean it was so great, I read 40 chapters in one night, said Shane Shuman. Heather Tillman said the fair helped teach students how to go deeper into their books. More than just reading a page, you have to look into the page, she said. It has to do a lot more with comprehension than just reading a book and closing it. It made you more than just read the book, Bailey Forsyth said. You really had to dissect it. After the initial judging, the top projects from each class were judged again, with winners receiving rewards, including some cash prizes. Among the freshmen, first, second and third place went to Tessa Ricker, Taylor Cooper and Kassady Perkinson. Zahriah Collins and Jacob Patray were in fourth and fifth place. Chante McCray, Megan Brown and Hannah Thompson received honorable mention. Tessa Ricker also won the Overall Excellence in Literacy Award. Among the sophomores, first, second and third place went to Savannah Cooper, Madyson Varnes and Krystyn Rosenberger. Meghan Woods and Carson Elder were in fourth and fifth place. Malaysia Hall, Dylan Whittemore and Tamija McCray received honorable mention. Awards were contributed by Community State Bank, Walmart, local law enforcement and the Florida Twin Theatre. Judges were Sonya Baldree, Jim Biggs, Sally Crane, Chad Farnsworth, Robert Perone, Carrol Redding, Rick Stephens and Virginia Walkup. The literacy fair was presented by the high school in coordination with the Literacy Committee, which consists of Principal Bryan Boyer, Assistant Principal Anthony McCallum, Donna Tew, Dana Scaff, Lindley Adkins, Chris Chaplin, Beth Oody and Kristina Martin.

Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. Bradford County is blessed with a thriving Master Gardener Program, with many volunteers who have special talents and abilities. Wendy Helmey-Hartman, who lives in Keystone Heights, has been a Master Gardener since 2009 and is a PhD candidate in entomology (the study of insects) at the University of Florida. She contributes an interesting column called Whats Buggin You? to the extension offices quarterly newsletter. I found her piece on the citrus mealybug particularly helpful and wanted to share it with Across the Garden Fence readers. It is reprinted below with permission. Whats Buggin You? Native to Asia, the citrus mealybug is an unwelcome pest in Florida. This bug is found most commonly on citrus plants in greenhouses, but it can also be found on at least 27 ornamental plant varieties. Citrus mealybugs can be found throughout the southeastern United States as well as other parts of the country. Citrus mealybugs begin their lives within light yellow oval-shaped eggs that are deposited typically on the trunks and stems of citrus plants. A white, cotton-like mass is also found around the eggs, which are laid in clumps of five to 20. Eggs require approximately one week to one month to hatch. When the eggs hatch, the young nymphs emerge and are called crawlers. These juvenile mealybugs resemble their eggs as the juveniles are yellow and oval-shaped with red eyes. They are also covered with a white, waxy substance. These nymphs are most commonly found on the undersides of leaves, young twigs, and areas where leaves and/or fruits touch one another. Nymphs can also be found on fruit. Unusually, the juvenile males and females differ in their lifecyclethe females have four stages as nymphs while the males have three stages and then form a cocoon before becoming adults. Adult citrus mealybugs are 3 to 4.5 millimeters in length. The adult females are covered in white wax and have a gray stripe. They are somewhat fuzzy in appearance. Adult males are not covered in white wax but they do have a pair of wax threads projecting backwards from their bodies. Citrus mealybugs possess piercing mouthparts that they use to feed on plants. Their feeding causes wilting, distortion and yellowing of leaves. They can also cause premature leaf drop and contribute to the growth of sooty mold on plants as a result of the depositing of honeydew. Citrus mealybugs may be found throughout the year in Florida, but are most common in the spring and summer. Parasitic fungi and predacious insects provide natural control for the citrus mealybug. Additionally, rain can cause mortality if the bugs are washed from the plants. If the mealybug population grows too large, then other measures may be taken to reduce its damage.

Sprucing up for a new year Family trip a winner depending on whose side youre on BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Jimbo Fisher vs. Gus Malzahn. Chief Osceola vs. Aubie. The Chop vs. War Eagle. Rowe vs. Rowe. When the Florida State Seminoles square off against the Auburn Tigers for the BCS Championship on Monday, Jan. 6, Jonathan and Shannon Rowe of Keystone Heightsand of the Bradford County business Rowe Enterprises Inc.will be in the stands at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., with their son, Andrew. Jonathan and Shannon will be wearing the orange and blue of Auburn, while Andrew will be wearing FSUs garnet and gold. It sounds like a house divided, but Andrew grew up an Auburn fan. Its just that hes a student at FSU. Shannon asked her son, What have you been telling everybody about the game? He answered, I cant lose. As an FSU student, though, Andrew is pulling for the Seminoles. However, if FSU wins, dont expect him to rub it in. Jonathan, a 1994 graduate of Auburns College of Engineering, reminded his son, I paid for the tickets. Shannon did not go to Auburn, but became a fan because of Jonathan. She admitted, however, that she does own some FSU items because of Andrew. She even has a cup Andrew gave her for her birthday that features the logos of both schools. As Shannon noted, the two schools dont normally play each other, so its fine for me to like both teams. Shannon Rowe has a little fun with her son, Andrew, who will be rooting for FSU at the BCS Championship game, while his mother and father, Jonathan, will be Jan. 3 to attend the Jan. 6 game. Make no mistake, though. Shannon is pulling for Auburn on Jan. 6. When asked if she was going to buy any game-related souvenirs, she said she wouldnt be coming home with much if Auburn lost. Shannon said the family wouldnt normally make such a trip as this, but the chance to see Auburn and FSU play each other in the last-ever BCS Championship game was too good to pass up. Its a lot of money for a football game, Shannon said, but with Andrew going to school (at FSU) and us playing each other, we went ahead and did it. The family was able to purchase tickets from an FSU booster, which, of course, means Jonathan and Shannon will be surrounded by FSU fans. Were not complaining because were very happy to have tickets, Shannon said. They were able to purchase their tickets at cost, which helped tremendously when considering the price of flights to California. Shannon said airfare was approximately $700 per person when the family first began looking at prices and when they were still unsure if they were going to get tickets. (The person they bought the tickets from wasnt sure how many hed actually get because of the high demand.) When the family did get their tickets, airfare had risen to approximately $1,000 per person. We would not be going if we had to pay more than face value for (game) tickets because flights were so expensive, Jonathan said. (Face value of a game ticket is in excess of $300.) The family will be joined by a friend of Jonathans who also went to Auburn. She works for a hotel, Shannon said of Jonathans friend. Were getting her employee rate, so that made it a little easier as well. Too bad we dont have a friend who works for the airline. While in California, Jonathan said hed like to take in some well-known sites you see featured on television, such as Venice Beach, and added hed like to eat somewhere in Chinatown. The family is flying to California on Friday, Jan. 3, and returning early Tuesday, Jan. 7, so theyll have some time to enjoy some activities outside of the game. Were renting a car, so I think all day Saturday and all day Sunday were going sightseeing, Shannon said. I think Monday, our plans just to get up and head to the game and tailgate. It became apparent as the season went on that FSU was a serious contender for a BCS Championship spot. Andrew said the game for him that started him See BCS, 8B

Dear Editor: To my friends colleagues and acquaintances. Im Jack Sapp, a lifelong resident of Union County. My wife, Carolyn our daughter and grand children were all educated in Union County. Ive been a registered voter since I was eighteen. I served 37 + years with the Florida Dept of Corrections and retired as Warden. I would like to ask each of you to join me in recommending Brad Whitehead to fill the position of Sheriff, succeeding his late father Jerry Whitehead. Brad has been preparing for the position for many years and had planned to run for the office upon his fathers retirement.. However, the Dear Editor: In communities where churches decorate most street comers, one would imagine the occupants to be peace loving and joyful, I mean, despite denominational differences, most members of religious institutions have surrendered their lives lo be ambassadors for Christ recreating the love, grace, and mercy he demonstrated while on earth. How we, as Christians, treat others is a reflection of Christ. As the new year begins, take a moment to evaluate the past years ambassadorship. Did we, as Christians, reflect Christs love and mercy or did we use Christianity as an excuse to reflect our own beliefs? Did the language of the holidays offend you? A few of my students work in businesses where they were instructed to wish people Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. Many commented how angry customers lectured them on the holiness of Christmas. These poor workers deserve better. Many of them are struggling students, single parents, or the working elderly. If Jesus had a meltdown every time he was verbally insulted, Christians might be justified exhibiting similar behavior. But he didnt. The more insults he suffered, the more love he offered. As ambassadors, showing the love of Christ, the whole point of Christmas, should be our gift to others. And I often say Happy Holidays because there are two holidays, not one, celebrated within a week of one another. How did Christian ambassadorship work in political arenas this past year? Was being associated with a political party more important than loving others, no matter their beliefs? Its interesting, especially being part of the educational system, how many Christian parents teach their children respect for others, and yet, due to their political affiliation, this respect is often selective. Romans 13:12 states, Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God (NLT). However, conversations around town and many entries posted on social media not only demonstrate disrespect to authority but also mock the teachings of the Bible. Jesus wasnt a member of a political party. He loved and cared for all people, so hopefully our children will see through our inconsistencies and choose to represent Christ, not man. They, too, will one be ambassadors for their beliefs. Ambassadorship doesnt involve judging others (Matthew 7:1-5), We should be ecstatic we have one less responsibility in our job description. Yet, we judge. And, in our judgment, we delegate people to hell when we have no authority to do so, especially since Christ paid for everyones sins with his life, if we make people believe they go to hell for their sins, weve proclaimed Christs death a hoax, a traitorous action, When we judge others for any reason, our actions proclaim we are God, not his representatives. And when we attack nonbelievers for not behaving or believing appropriately, we shouldnt be surprised theyre not interested in learning more about Christ, A New Years resolution for Christians to represent Christ Help support Brad Whitehead for UC sheriff Who do people see? for who he is and not for who we think he is a wonderful concept, especially for those people who have never met him. If people saw the Christ represented in the Bible when they met us, they might want to know more about him. Unfortunately, according to Forbes.com only 8% of those making resolutions stick to them. In this new year, who will people see when they meet you? Kathleen Conner Combass untimely death of his father has left the position to be filled by appointment, by Governor Rick Scott. I have watched Brad over the years, earning his certifications and working in law enforcement as an investigator with the State Fire Marshals Office, investigator with Inspector Generals Office Department of Corrections, Deputy Sheriff Union County and Administrator (Assistant Warden) Department of Corrections. No doubt Brads well qualified to hold the Office of Sheriff, Union County. Please join me in contacting Governor Rick Scott and recommend he appoint Brad Whitehead to the position of Sheriff of Union County. Log onto: flgov.com/contactgov-scott or find the address and Phone #. Thank you, and please continue to keep the Whitehead family in your prayers. Jack Sapp Lake Butler Letters editor@bctelegraph.com A half-gallon of milk was 39 cents, while 2 pounds of Red Delicious apples could be purchased for 29 cents. If you wanted to make some burgers, 5 pounds of ground beef could be had for $1.98. Those were some of the prices touted in a Winn-Dixie ad in the Jan. 2, 1964, edition of the Bradford County Telegraph. That issue also featured an ad for the Florida Theatre, which proclaimed, Come at your own risk, in regard to the movie Blood Feast, touted as the bloodiest, goriest picture you have ever seen! The ad assured viewers that a special nurse would be on duty, along with an ambulance and two attendants. Were not sure how people reacted to the movie in question, but what we do know is that the following were some of the stories that made up that issue. Just as we presented a look at the Christmas week issue of the Telegraph from 50 years ago, heres what took place 50 years ago leading up to New Years Day: Bradford sales and income up According to detailed economic reports for the 12-month period ending June 30, 1963, Bradford County made solid gains in retail sales and per capital income to share in the business surge prevalent in most of the country. The report, showing that wages went up for most working people, and spending rose proportionately, has just been released by the Standard Rate and Data Service. The volume of business chalked up by retail merchants in Bradford County reached $13,495,000 during the 12-month period, topping the previous years $12,258,000, according to the report. The gain, amounting to 9.9 percent, compares favorably with that in the U.S. as a whole, which was 5.9 percent. In Florida, the overall increase was 7.4 percent. Locally, as well as nationally, the advance was along a broad front, with most lines of business benefiting from the increase in consumer spending. New cars accounted for a large part of the total retail volume. Sales of appliances, including such major hard goods as refrigerators, washers and dryers, were considerably higher. Much of the upward push took place in the second half of the year, when public confidence in the economy was fully restored. It showed itself in a general loosening of the purse strings, which had been held in some restraint ever since the stock market debacle of 1962. The report shows that Bradford County residents had a net spendable income in the year, after paying their taxes, of $15,622,000. In fiscal 1962, it was $14,256,000. It amounted to $4,463 in disposable income, on the average, per local household. The economic indicators point to a continuation of good business in 1964, even though the unemployment problem in some areas is still unabated. Optimism concerning the years prospects is more general than it has been since 1960. The biggest factor is the consuming public, which has more money to spend than ever before. Divorce rate in Bradford higher than U.S. average The divorce rate in Bradford County is not an enviable one. Although it has not reached the size that it has in some parts of the country, it is, nevertheless, higher than the average. As a result of families splitting up locally, there are now 505 men and women in the county who are listed as divorced or separated. Of the total, 252 are divorced, and 253 are separated. The figures are based on a survey recently made by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and on data gathered by the Department of Commerce. They show that in Bradford County, 60 local residents out of every 1,000 over the age of 14 are either divorced or separated. That is a higher ratio than is reported for most of the United States, the average being 43 per 1,000. In Florida, it is 58 per 1,000. Growing attention is being paid to the divorce situation Stories the new year brought in 1964... See 1964, 4B

According to the arrest report, a deputy was called to the area in reference to a disturbance at a home. The deputy observed Williams standing at the front door of the home, yelling loudly at the occupants about them owing him $5. The deputy told Williams to lower his voice as he was causing a disturbance to the neighbors. Williams refused to stop yelling, and instead began rapping a song about the occupants owing him $5. After Williams refused numerous orders by the deputy to leave the home and to stop singing and yelling, he was arrested and transported to the Union jail and charged with disorderly conductdisturbing the peace. Rapping about money owed leads to arrest Lemuel Leander Cooper, 26, and Afernee Antonio Hayes, 19, both of Melrose, were arrested Dec. 29 by Bradford deputies after a chase that started at Club LA on C.R. 225 east of Lawtey ended on U.S. 301 several miles south of Lawtey. According to the arrest report, a Bradford deputy came upon a vehicle stopped in the middle of the road at the club. When the deputy activated his lights to get the vehicle to pull over, it sped off on C.R. 225 toward Lawtey, crossing U.S. 301 and then turning south on C.R. 200A. The vehicle then got back on U.S. 301 south of Lawtey, twice crossing over into the northbound lane while still going south. The vehicle then slowed down, and the driver, later identified as Cooper, jumped out and ran across the highway to the area of Northwest 198 th Street. Hayes was detained in the vehicle, while several deputies went after Cooper, getting him to surrender after threatening to bring in a K-9 tracking dog. Drugs were found in the vehicle and on the suspects at the jail. Cooper was arrested and charged with reckless driving, driving while license suspended or revoked, resisting an officer, possession of cocaine and trafficking in cocaine. Hayes was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, trafficking of cocaine, smuggling contraband into the jail and for resisting an officer. No bail was set for either suspect. 2 arrested for after chase Arrests in Bradford, Clay and Union The following individuals were arrested recently by local law enforcement officers in Bradford, Union or Clay (Keystone Heights area) counties: Bradford Larry Lee Brooks, 20, of Starke was arrested Dec. 27 by Bradford deputies for battery and for aggravated battery. According to the arrest report, Brooks attacked his own grandparents physically, choking both at some point and throwing a brick at his grandfather, hitting him in the arm. Brooks also used a hammer to put holes in the victims walls and to crush his own cell phone. When the grandparents tried to leave the residence, Brooks got in the car with them and made them take him to Baker County. Later in the day, after the victims went to the sheriffs office to file a report, Brooks was located at McDonalds in Starke and arrested. His bail was set at $30,000. Jermaine Andro Brown, 20, of Tampa was arrested Dec. 27 by Bradford deputies for larceny, fraud by illegal use of credit cards and fraud by impersonation.

John Joseph Danella, 25, of Starke was arrested Dec. 23 by Starke police for cruelty toward a child. According to the arrest report, Danella is accused of abusing his 5-year-old stepson physically, choking him at one point and throwing him against a wall during the same incident. The child had other bruisings that Danella said could have come from spankings he gave the child, or from the child himself hitting his head against the wall or his bedpost on his own. The investigation was initiated after DCF received a report of possible child abuse at the home. Danellas bail was set at $5,000. Anthony Lee Hodges, 34, of Lawtey was arrested Dec. 29 by Bradford deputies for two charges of battery, probation violation and contempt of court. According to the arrest report, Hodges started attacking his mother and another female victim after asking them for a cigarette. He was choking his mother when she broke free and attempted to push Hodges out of the door to lock it. Before she could get the door locked, he grabbed the other victim and pulled her outside, causing her to fall on the ground. He then kicked the victim on the ground in the back of the head before his mother pulled his shirt over his head, allowing the other victim to run in the house, lock the door and call 911. Hodges was already on probation for aggravated battery and had a permanent injunction against him by the second victim. No bond was set after the arrest.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Some of the debris from a Nov. 22, 1952, plane crash that claimed the life of Starkes Robert A. Owen has just recently been uncovered as part of an ongoing recovery process that was initially hampered by foul weather and avalanche conditions in Alaska. Its a little closure, said Owens nephew, who is also named Robert Owen. I can remember my mom and some of them saying, I just dont know if he was in that plane or not when it went down. He definitely was listed as the radio operator on the manifest. Robert A. Owen, who was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Owen, was in the Army and preparing for a return to Korea. He was on board a Douglas C-124 Globemastera plane often referred to as Old Shaky that crashed into Mount Gannett on a flight from McChord Air Force Base in Washington State. According to information posted on the Korean War Educator website, the plane was minutes away from landing at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. They crashed into the top of the mountainprobably about 60 feet short of the top, the younger Robert Owen said. They were just that close to getting over it. The crash, which killed all 52 members on board the plane, was apparently the result of bad weather. Douglas Beckstead, the historian of the 673 rd Air Base Wing at Joint Base ElmendorfRichardson, reviewed copies of the official incident reports, according to a June 28, 2012, Stars and Stripes story that was posted on the Korean War Educator website. Beckstead said the plane was flying blind, having to rely upon the altimeter, a stopwatch and a radio signal to navigate its way to its destination. because of the effect that it has on the lives of so many adults and, more especially, on their children. In the past year, there were more than 400,000 divorces in the U.S. They have markedly changed the lives of 800,000 men and women and of their nearly 500,000 children. While the number of divorces keeps going up in line with the expansion of our population, there has been no increase in the rate itself. Actually, the divorce rate per 1,000 people has been dropping since 1946, when the all-time high of 610,000 divorces was recorded. This avalanche was attributed to the marital difficulties connected with hasty wartime marriages and with the long separations that ensued. Many of the people who found that their marriages were not made in heaven, and who were subsequently divorced, have remarried, the figures show. According to the governments figures, for every person in the U.S. who has been divorced and who has not remarried, there are 2.5 others, once divorced, who have remarried. 10 4-H clubs to be organized by assistant Bradford Countys new assistant county agent, Bobby Lee Taylor, is in the process of forming 10 4-H clubs early in the new year. We plan to have clubs in Lawtey, Brooker, Hampton and Starke, Taylor said, and each club will hold meetings twice a month. Taylor was employed by the county commission recently to assist County Agent G.T. Huggins, with emphasis on developing a strong 4-H program in the county. Bradford Countians are reading more Bradford Countians are reading more, according to the monthly report for November by the Santa Fe Regional Library. The figures show a circulation of 2,001 books during last November as compared with 1,597 during the same month last year. During the first 11 months of 1963, the library circulated 3,920 books as compared with 3,240 in the same period of 1962. Despite saying never again, Norman not through with berries Six years ago, Harold Norman said that he was through with strawberriesthat hed never plant another crop. Today, hes back in the business, bigger than ever, with 25.5 acres of Florida 90s no mean crop by anybodys standards. During the peak of the forthcoming season, he will employ 60 or more hands to harvest his crop, with a payroll running in the neighborhood of $3,500 per week. His berries will be flown to New York and other eastern markets by plane, 1964 Continued from 2B assuring maximum freshness and quality on arrival. For one who was through with berries just six years ago, this sounds like a pretty big operation, but in his discouragement at that time, Harold was voicing the sentiments of Bradford growers in general who, since about 1953, had been beat by declining fields on their plantings of the old Missionary strain, mulched with grass and plagued by sting nematodes. Mr. Norman attributes the strawberry comeback almost entirely to three factors, chief of which is the new black, plastic mulching. The last year I used grass, mulching it was murder, Norman said. We just couldnt get a yield. In addition to plastic mulch, other factors contributing to the revitalized industry are: the improved new variety, Florida 90, which has replaced the old Missionary berry; soil testing, with lime applications to correct pH factor; and soil fumigation to kill sting nematodes. The story of the comeback is recalled by County Agent G.T. Huggins, who says: When I first came to Bradford County in 1953, I didnt know a strawberry plant from a guava. Berry plants were withering away and not yielding as they should. Farmers were discouraged and baffled. Huggins started in to educate himself regarding strawberries and sought help from the agricultural extension service and the Florida Experiment Station at the University of Florida. Dr. Donald Coe, then extension plant pathologist, made a trip here and diagnosed the trouble as sting nematodes. This was determined by taking plants to the laboratory in Gainesville for screening. This process revealed as many 500 nematodes infesting the roots and a handful of surrounding soil on a single plant. In 1954, test plots were established in Bradford County to determine the effect of fumigating and liming the soil. Comparative results showed this to be the answer to the strawberry problem as far as soil conditioning was concerned. In a comparison of treated and untreated rows, it was found that, at bearing time, plants in the untreated rows were just half the size of those that had been treated. Thanks to these efforts, Bradford County strawberry growers are back in the business. Production per acre has tripled and, in some cases, quadrupled or even more. Before the improvement program got underway, the average yield per acre was around 250 12-pint flats. Now, yields of 800 flats per acre are common; 1,000 flats per acre are not unusual; and last year, Norman hit a phenomenal high of over 1,500 flats per acre on part of his planting. Gas station ban appears dead Starkes proposed ordinance to restrict construction of new gasoline stations in the city appeared this week to have died aborning. Council Chairman Ruby B. Johns said the proposal as vigorously opposed by just about everybody who owns property along highways through the town. She said at least 25 people had either called her on the phone or appeared in person to protest the proposed measure. George Pierce of the firm Thomas and Pierce, city attorneys, said he had made no move to draw up the ordinance as instructed by the council at its meeting of Dec. 17. Pierce said that due to property owned by a member of the firm, there would be a conflict of interest with the new ordinance. He said if the council insisted that the ordinance be drawn up, other counsel would have to be employed. The councils initial action was taken when a delegation appeared at its Dec. 17 meeting, presenting a petition signed by 17 service station operators, asking for a ban on the construction of new service stations in the city within 450 yards of any existing station, church, hospital or place of public gathering. In line with the request, council instructed attorney Pierce to draw up an ordinance, patterned after ordinances said to be used by other towns in the area, and the council proposed to meet the following day, Dec. 18, to ratify the measure. Mrs. Johns said yesterday, however, that the special meeting was not held and that nothing further had been done due to the storm of protest aroused by the measure. We decided it needed a lot more study, she said. A.J. Thomas of Thomas and Pierce said that when the proposed ordinance became known, at least 15 owners of property along U.S. 301 registered strong objections. Thomas concurred with the protest, saying, Were not going to lock up progress around here. He went on to term the proposal discriminatory and unconstitutional. By that line of reasoning, he said it could be service stations today, drug stores tomorrow and any other business that was selected as a target. He went on to explain that the proposed action was a matter of rezoning, which would have to be handled in the customary way, with public hearings as outlined by laws governing such proposals. Chief spokesman for the petitioning group was John A. Torode, who said that Starkes 30-odd service stations are already more than are needed here. He said there is hardly a station in town that hasnt laid off one or two attendants in recent weeks, and that two stations have been forced to close. The ordinance, as requested, would have granted a 90-day period of grace during which anyone desiring to could construct a new station. House-hunting couple left stranded as passenger takes car The only disruption of the holiday spirit sufficiently serious for the Bradford County Sheriffs Department to issue a warrant was an automobile stolen from a Jacksonville couple on a house-hunting expedition near Hampton last Thursday. Mrs. Mildred Ayers, owner of the 1949 Chevrolet sedan, and her husband were inside a house they expected to rent when another passenger, Joe Simmons, 35, of Jacksonville, drove off in the car, leaving the couple stranded. Simmons drove the stolen car to St. Augustine, according to Deputy Sheriff Robert Green, taking with him a fourth passenger, Wilbur F. Daniels, also of Jacksonville. The Ayers couple, Simmons and Daniels all have addresses on Sheridan Street in Jacksonville. In St. Augustine, Simmons sold the car for $50 to Robert Alexander, a trustie prisoner and mechanic in the St. Johns County stockade. Both Simmons and Daniels then made their way to Jacksonville, where they were arrested by Duval authorities after being identified by the Ayers. Simmons has been charged on a warrant issued in Bradford County with larceny of an automobile and is being held in the Duval County Jail until he can be brought to Starke. Daniels has not been charged as yet and has been released from custody. The automobile has also been recovered, Deputy Green said. Mrs. Norman and sister-in-law Sandra Norman grade According to the Korean War Educator website, a Northwest Orient Airlines pilot deciphered a scratchy radio signal from the plane: As long as we have to land, we might as well land here. The plane, which was apparently experiencing a malfunction of some kind, plowed full speed into Mount Gannett. Lt. Thomas Sullivan and Civil Air Patrol Lt. Terris Moore spotted the planes tail section sticking out of the snow six days after the crash, according to the June 28, 2012, Stars and Stripes story, which also included the observation that the crash triggered an avalanche and that the debris was scattered across approximately 2 acres and covered by 8 feet of fresh snow. An Anchorage Daily News story reported that a recovery crew set out on Nov. 29, 1952. Because of weather conditions, the crew had to establish a base camp at 5,500 feet, which was 8 miles from where the tail section was located by Sullivan and Moore. Crew members suffered frostbite and had to dig each other out of the snow as the sides of their tents collapsed, causing members to be trapped in their sleeping bags by the accumulating snow. The crew reached the tail section on Dec. 9, but further recovery was called off because of blizzard conditions. When Alaska National Guardsmen, who were aboard a Blackhawk helicopter, spotted the wreckage in June 2012, it was located more than 12 miles from the original crash site, trapped within a glacier that has swallowed up and revealed debris over time. The scattered wreckage has apparently been slowly moving with the glacier for 60 years, Army Capt. Jamie Dobson was quoted as saying in the June 28, 2012, Stars and Stripes story. A July 10, 2013, Reuters story written by Yereth Rosen quotes forensic anthropologist Gregory See CRASH, 6B An ad for Winn-Dixie shows some of the prices in 1964. Robert A. Owen was killed in a plane crash in Alaska prior to a return to Korea in 1952. His nephew, named Robert Owen, said he heard his Owen described as a happy, go-lucky kind of fellow who liked to play tricks and do things like that.

Owners & Operators Kathy Rensberger & Leisha Boyd Any avid hunter would enjoy the movie Jeremiah Johnson, and any avid hunter who has seen the movie would never forget the shrill call of a red tail hawk or the haunting bugle of an elk as they echoed off the mountain peaks and through the valleys of the Rocky Mountains. Dwayne Hardee has heard the call of a red tail hawk and the bugle of an elk, and he has heard them from Maybell, Colo. Not only has he heard elk; he has hunted and bagged them. As a matter of fact, he brought home one bull and one cow from this years hunting trip. That surely is a major accomplishment for any serious hunter. They are big, awesome animals, Hardee said. Actually, many bulls will weigh over 500 pounds, and though rarelysome of the larger Roosevelt subspecies have gone over 1,000 pounds. Additionally, they have huge and impressive racks. Fins, Fur & Tails in Colorado Dwayne Hardee with the bull elk he bagged this year in Colorado. Hardee indicated that hunters vary in their techniques for elk. Sometimes, they will use a stand near areas the elk frequent. Likewise, some people prefer to hunt and walk. Apparently, some areas are covered well with trees, but Hardee specified that you can also see into next week in other areas. He personally moved around a little and used natural blinds. When asked about his personal equipment, he indicated that he did not use anything special. You do have a lot less cover compared to Florida, and your gun has to be able to reach out well. He personally used a 7mm Magnum, and he did not use any cover scent. When asked if he had ever seen the movie Jeremiah Johnson, Hardee answered, About a thousand times. River Quinn displays a really nice crappie caught in Santa Fe Lake. Hardee added he would not mind living in Colorado if it wasnt for the blistering cold and the unbelievable amount of snow. Outdoors outlook Regarding local freshwater fishing, the mercury has barely touched the freezing temperature on the thermometer this year, the migratory birds are late and the crappie spawn is late as well. Plenty of crappie are being caught, with Newnans, Lochloosa, Cresent and Rodman lakes starring in the performance. Jeff Fitts, who lives in Keystone Heights and fishes professionally and guides on some central Florida lakes, has been successful, bringing home more than his share of crappie this year, but admits that they have not crowded the shoreline or near shoreline cover for their typical December spawn. Fitts indicates, however, that they have congregated into their cool-weather schools, and if you can locate them, they are easily caught. He suggests that the bite is better when the barometric pressure is stable or rising. T.C. Lloyd, who also fishes and guides pan fishermen on central Florida lakes, believes that there has just not been enough cool water to trigger the spawning cycle and looks for the bedding cycle to come to fruition in January. Lloyd also has experienced no difficulty in locating the specks in their winter schools. The crappie might not be in the maiden cane or the lily pads in Santa Fe Lake, but they are schooling. River Quinn can attest to that. The speck he is holding in the attached photo appears to be one of the larger ones produced in the area this year. Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle reiterates that some nice crappies are coming out of Santa Fe and the Camp Blanding lakes. Regarding inshore saltwater fishing on the west coast, all the reports seem to be good on speckled trout. Both Captain Randy Harris and Gary Simpson are full of success stories throughout the Big Bend area. Regarding inshore saltwater fishing on the east coast, the reports are more diversified. Whiting still appear to be prolific along the beaches, and trout and reds are still caught in the lower St Johns and the Intracoastal. The best reports seem to surround the sheepshead catches around the docks, pilings and jetties on the east coast. Many of the striped fish are quite large, and the catch is prolific. Tight lines, safe hunting and a happy New Years.

Berg as saying, As the glacier melts and the glacier moves, more material comes up to the surface. No one aboard the plane has been positively identified by recovered remains, but the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command expected such results to soon be forthcoming, according to a July 8, 2013, Anchorage Daily News story written by Lisa Demer. The news story reported that collected remains are labeled by location, kept in a morgue cooler and shipped to a laboratory in Oahu, Hawaii, where an attempt to match the remains with relatives DNA is made. Right now, Im waiting on anybody to contact me to see if they want to get samples to try to compare DNA, Owen told the Telegraph-Times-Monitor. Owen said if his uncles remains are recovered and identified, and later buried, he would like to at least make one trip to the burial site. For now, though, its just wait and see. The main thing is that there is some certainty in regard to what happened to his uncle. Owen said he thought some of the Telegraph-Times-Monitor readers would like to be informed. CRASH Continued from 4B I know there are a few people here in town who probably still remember him, he said.

You can find several stories about the crash and recovery efforts online by performing a search for Globemaster crash Alaska.

Call Street Starke, FL 904-964-5764 Fax 904-964-6905 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If this seasons BCS Championship is anything like the last one Shane Reddish went to, then the Florida State Seminoles will be celebrating their third national title. Shane and his wife, Audrey, will be attending this years game in Pasadena. It will be the first BCS Championship game Audrey has ever been to, but not the first for Shane. He attended the 2000 game that was played in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. FSU defeated Virginia Tech 46-29. Now, 14 years later, the Seminoles are once again on college footballs biggest stage. Shane said hes surprised it took so long for the school to be back in that position. Thats kind of why were going, Shane said. We dont know how long its going to be until we get back there. Shane noted the similarities between this years FSU team and the one that won that won the schools last national championship. Like that team, this years team is undefeated and has a Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback. (Chris Weinke, who quarterbacked the 1999 team, actually won his Heisman Trophy the season following the national championship.) Sounds like a couple of good reasons for Shane to feel good about this teams chances. Hopefully, I can make it two for two, he said. Shane grew up an FSU fan. (His father, Mike, is an FSU graduate.) His wife became a fan after they started dating. I was a Gator fan, Audrey said, laughing. Everybody knows. I was a diehard Gator fan. She had no problem making the switch, though Shane said, She didnt have a choice. The Starke couple went to this years ACC Championship in Charlotte, N.C. FSU won yet another game in convincing fashion, defeating Duke 45-7. It was the 10 th game in 13 the Seminoles had won by at least 30 points. Once we won the game, we got home and put in our request to see if we could get (BCS Championship) tickets, Audrey said. Shane said they were hoping they could get four so they could take their children, but they received just two. Our sons not happy, Audrey said. Hes 13, and hes mad. He thinks he should be going. Audrey and Shane will actually be staying in Las Vegas, flying out of Florida on Friday, Jan. 3. Shane said it was more inexpensive that flying into and staying in Californiaeven after a price increase. The week before the ACC title game, we looked at the prices, Shane said. I shouldve booked it then, but I didnt know if we could get (game) tickets. The week after, the price doubled. Theyve got some kind of big convention going on in Las Vegas, but we still got very, very good rates. Audrey said the plan is to drive to Pasadena on the day of the game, though Shane said that could change. We might leave Sunday night and take in some sights Monday, he said. The Seminoles were talked about as possible national-title contenders going into the season. Shane said he felt good about his teams chances of getting to the BCS Championship after a 63-0 win over Maryland. It was pretty much downhill after that, he said, especially with Florida and how things were with them with all the injuries and everything. One of the catalysts for FSUs success has been the play of freshman quarterback Jameis Winston. Shane said he has been very impressed with the quarterbacks poise all season and believes Winston will continue to shine. I feel very comfortable going in there on that big stage, Shane said. (Winston) wants the spotlight. I think hell perform well. Thats going to make the rest of the team comfortable. Jan. 6 will be a special day for Winston in more ways than one. Its his birthday that day, Audrey said. He turns 20 on the day he plays. A win would make a great birthday present, and Shane thinks Winston will get it. He thinks the game will start out close, but believes that in the end, FSUs defense will outperform Auburns. I think the second halfs going to be our half, Shane said. Thats when were going to put it away, I believe. In fact, Shanes already envisioned how the game will start. He said FSU will punt the first time it has the ball. Both teams will then trade a couple of scores before Auburn punts twice, with FSU scoring following each change of possession. Audrey looked at her husband in amazement and asked, Youve just got it all figured out, dont you? Shane said he has heard a lot of talk in the area about the strength of the SEC, but that doesnt concern him. He mentioned how FSU managed to score 37 points against a Florida team that had one of the countrys better defenses. Plus, when he looks at Auburns defense, he sees a unit that gave up 42 points to Missouri in the SEC Championship game. The fact that Auburn has run the ball so well this year is a bit of a concern, Shane said, noting that Boston College running back Andre Williams averaged 5 yards per carry and gained 154 yards on the FSU defense. Boston College never reached the end zone, though, on a running play. Our first-string defense has not allowed a rushing touchdown all season, Shane said. That speaks volumes right there Shane is predicting a final score of 42-21 in favor of FSU. Audrey said she thought it was going to be closer, but after giving it some thought, she, too, predicted a double-digit FSU win by the score of 34-18. No matter what happens, Shane said he and his wife will be bringing back some souvenirs from this last-ever BCS game for themselves and others. Regardless of the outcome, weve got to buy some authentic gear out there for a couple of people, Shane said. Ive got a list of stuff Ive got to bring back. thinking about Pasadena was the Oct. 19 road game against Clemson, whom FSU defeated 51-14. When we hit Clemson pretty hard, that was kind of my first time (thinking about the national championship), Andrew said. This was supposed to be a pretty close game, and we shelled them. Andrew became even more confident of his teams chances after a 41-14 win over Miami on Nov. 14. I had a good feeling we were going, Andrew said. As long as we beat Miamithat was pretty much the one. After that, it was kind of downhill. As the Seminoles kept steamrolling opponentsthey won 13 games by an average margin of 42 pointsAuburn was slowly building momentum after a 35-21 loss to LSU in the fourth week of the season. The Tigers were coming off of a 3-9 season in which they failed to win one SEC game in 2012, so they werent talked about as a possible national championship contender. If you follow football at all, then you surely know of the game-winning plays the Tigers had against Georgia and Alabama in the latter stages of the season. A 73-yard reception off of a tipped pass on a fourthand-18 play with 25 seconds left resulted in a 43-38 win over Georgia, while a 100-yard return (109 unofficially) of a missed field goal on the last play of the game resulted in a 34-28 win over Alabama. Its pretty amazing the year we had to get there, Jonathan said. (FSU) pretty much rolled through the whole year. As you saw, we had some really close stuff along the way. Thats not just the last two (regular-season games). We started slow and struggled, and, of course, lost to LSU. Auburn defeated Missouri 59-42 to win the SEC championship. Tiger fans then had to hope for a Michigan St. win over Ohio St. in the Big 10 Championship game. An Ohio St. victory most likely wouldve put the Buckeyes in the national championship game against FSU. Michigan St. won 34-24. That was a very tense night, Shannon said. First, we won our game. Then we had to wait another four hours to find out how Ohio St. was going to do. For Jonathan, the Alabama game was the highlight of the season. The return of the missed field goal is obviously the play everyone talks about, but Jonathan said he liked his teams chances even if that play had not been made. If that kick goes wide another 3 yards, we still win in overtime, I think, he said. Though the Alabama game was a highlight for her as well, Shannon said what she has really enjoyed this season is watching the game as called by Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn. I dont know a lot about football, but I know enough to know Gus does some crazy stuff Ive never seen before, Shannon said. That is so fun for me to watch. Andrew chimed in and said, She likes the double reverses, flea flickers and all the trick plays. Though hes been cheering the Seminoles on this season, Andrew said he still kept up with how the Auburn Tigers were doing. He even wore an Auburn shirt on campus after the Tigers win over Alabama. I still care about them, he said. I still watch the games. Shannon said Andrew really wanted the Seminoles to play Alabama in the BCS Championship game, setting FSU up for the chance to defeat a team that won three of the last four national championships. Andrews happy with the way things played out in the end, though, saying the Seminoles have a worthy opponent. I really didnt want to play Ohio St. I knew they were not the caliber of team the hype had been portraying, he said. FSU is favored to beat Auburn, but Jonathan and Shannon feel their team is capable of winning. Shannon said she thinks the Tigers have an advantage of playing in the SEC, which she thinks is a stronger conference than the ACC. You could assume the SEC team will win, she said, but these teams are so different. We havent played anybody like FSU; FSU hasnt played anybody like Auburn. Jonathan said he thinks a key is for the Tigers to get to FSU quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. I think we stand a really good chance if we can get penetration and get to Winston, Jonathan said. Nobodys had their hands on him this year, but hes a freshman. If you can put your hands on him a couple of times, you can definitely get in his head, I think. Andrew doesnt buy into that theory because of the speed of wide receivers Rashad Greene and Kenny Shaw. They can get down the field in a hurry, Andrew said. Even if you get pressure on Winston, I think he can scramble and handle his own. Andrew did say hes with his mother on the belief the SEC is a better conference than the ACC. So, how will it all end? Jonathan said he can see a lowscoring affair, but believes itll be more along the lines of 49-45 in favor of Auburn. I dont think that score is finalized until the last two minutes of the game, Jonathan said. If the game is close late, Shannon said she believes in her teams chances, just like one of Auburns most famous football players. Bo Jackson says were a fourth-quarter team, Shannon said, with Jonathan adding, Thats right, and Bo knows. Andrew, of course, believes the Seminoles will win, though he can see a lot of points being put up because of Winston and Auburn running back Tre Mason. I think its going to be a really good game, Andrew said.

County dispatchers sent emergency medical workers and firefighters to Northeast 156th Street at 9:36 a.m. According to Emergency Management Director Brian Johns, Starke Fire-Rescue personnel arrived shortly after a county emergency medical crew. The occupants of the home and their pets had already left the structure. There were no injuries. Johns said the Starke crew quickly extinguished the fire in the back of the home, but had some difficulty getting to flames between the ceiling and roof because the home had no attic. One of the homes occupants, Kathy DeVoe, said she and her sister live in the home. She originally thought a candle was to blame for the fire, but an investigator later determined it was an overheated surge protector. There were no candles burning whatsoever, said DeVoes sister, Kathy Long. Long added that when she first detected smoke in the house, she was preparing food for a family gathering and first thought the smoke was coming from the stove. She then shouted for DeVoe to check other parts of the house and the pair soon found a small fire in DeVoes bedroom. We tried to smother it out but we couldnt, Long recalled. It kept getting bigger. Long said after the flames continued to spread, the two women abandoned their attempts to put out the fire, called 911 and evacuated their pets from the structure. A website has been set up to help the sisters. To provide a secure donation through PayPal, go to www.youcaring. com/helpkathys. As of Monday afternoon, more than $1,000 of the $10,000 goal had been raised. According to the site, the sisters escaped from the house with their pets, purses and the pajamas they were wearing. Robbery, carjacking suspect crashes near Raiford BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A Bradford County deputy pursued a robbery and carjacking suspect from the Hampton area through Starke and into Union County until the suspect crashed the vehicle at the intersection of S.R. 16 and S.R. 121 near Raiford. According to Alachua County Sheriffs spokesperson Art Forgey, the suspect, Jamal Demante Keshune Ross, 21, of Ocala stole gasoline, a phone charger, water and cash from a convenience store north of Ocala around 2 a.m. Saturday morning. Forgey told the Gainesville Sun that Ross drove the four-door, maroon vehicle he used to escape the robbery scene into Alachua County. He then rammed the vehicle into a black Chevrolet Equinox, forced the family that was in the SUV out of the vehicle and then drove off in the Chevrolet. Around 2:41 a.m., a Bradford dispatcher issued an alert for a 30-year-old black male driving a black Chevrolet Equinox. The dispatcher said the man was a suspect in a carjacking and might be armed. Bradford County Sheriffs Capt. Brad Smith said Waldo Police spotted the suspect and pursued him to the Bradford County line. At that point, Deputy James Albritton began following the suspect and Waldo police broke off their pursuit. Albritton reported the suspect was traveling 105 mph. He followed the SUV into Starke where police joined the pursuit. After the suspect turned off U.S. 301 and onto S.R. 16 west toward Florida State Prison, Albritton told dispatchers that the Equinox nearly crashed into oncoming traffic several times. He added that the Chevy reached a speed of 115 mph. Once inside Union County, S.R. 16 dead ends into S.R. 121 about a mile north of Raiford. The intersection is well-known for traffic crashes with motorists traveling westbound on S.R. 16 frequently failing to yield to the stop sign at 121 and either colliding with traffic on S.R. 121 or running into trees beyond the intersection. The suspect in the Equinox plowed into the tree line beyond the road junction. Following the crash, the vehicle caught fire. Firefighters from Heilbron Springs, Lawtey and Union County responded to the scene, and Ross was treated by Bradford and Union County emergency medical workers for a broken femur. He was transported to UF Health where Alachua County deputies were to meet the ambulance. In an email to the Monitor, Forgey said Ross underwent surgery later Saturday morning for injuries sustained in the crash. The following day, Alachua deputies charged the 21-year-old with carjacking and with aggravated battery. Growth begins to show BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Have signs of economic improvement begun to show in local building projects and real estate sales? To some extent, they have. There were more homes and commercial projects permitted in 2013, and property sales also increased. Twenty-seven new single-family homes were permitted in Bradford County, including three in the city of Starke. This surpasses the 23 permitted last year, and even more so when you consider that a number of 2012s homes were grant-funded replacements and not representative of new growth. Many of the homes permitted hovered around the estimated construction cost of $150,000, although one permitted in Starke was listed with a cost exceeding $230,000. New mobile home installations still outpaced new home construction. There were 45 in 2013 compared to 42 in 2012, plus 10 mobile home replacements. The permit report obtained from the Bradford County Building and Zoning office also listed three modular homes, with costs ranging from $97,000 up to more than $181,000. Commercial construction permits numbered 19, although eight were mini storage buildings placed in Starke by businessman John Curles, who also plans on opening an Internet caf and amusement parlor in his strip mall on the south end of town. One of the only new commercial buildings representing a new business is the restaurant being constructed at the corner of S.R. 100 and C.R. 21B between Starke and Keystone Heights. Tom and Kathie Perryman, owners of Country Caterers, are opening the new barbecue joint, Toms Real Pit BBQ. According to the sign, they plan on opening this month. More seems to be going on in food service than anything else. While

Chrissys moved from Thompson Street across the railroad tracks to the former Whale Tales building and then reopened as the Downtown Grill. Then Mamma Mias took up residence in Chrissys old place, becoming Tony and Als Deli. That left space at Mamma Mias for the Prevatt family to open a Starke version of their Middleburg sports bar. Dickeys opened out by Walmart, selling barbecue in the former Whataburger building. Moonshiners opened after a longer-than-expected renovation of the former Cowboys restaurant. A Mexican restaurant, El San Jose, has just opened in the strip mall just north of IHOP. A China Buffet returned to Bradford Square, but another Chinese/Japanese restaurant, this one with a drivethrough concept, opened and closed shortly thereafter in the former Checkers building. With Wendys unexpected closing a few weeks ago, there are at least two empty fast food spaces in town. Goodys opened up a clothing retail store in a renovated anchor spot at Bradford Square. Savea-Lot also plans to return to Starke, but will be setting up shop in the Deerfoot Shopping Center next to Tractor Supply Company. Lending Bear took over the former ABC liquor site following renovations there. The Starke City Commission approved a site plan for a new business at U.S. 301 and Market Road, but construction permits have not been pulled on that project yet. While the site plan was approved, the actual identity of the rumored discount retailer officially remains a mystery. Judging by the permit list, Mark and Dawn Stricklands Home Sweet Bone, a pet boarding business on Edwards Road, was the only other new business requiring new construction. That is not to say there wasnt other commercial building activity. Both D. Mosley Trucking and Jim Lawrence Transportation permitted new metal buildings. Murray Ford permitted an automobile service building and customer lounge. The Salvation Army continues work on its camp, including repairs to a dining hall damaged by fire in 2013. The hospital received some internal renovations, and Griffin Industries added an employeecentered facility with a break room, showers, etc. In the final days of 2013, the county pulled a permit to construct a new animal control facility on property it already owns behind the solid waste collection site on Southwest 75th Avenue. The county also completed roofing and remodeling work at the courthouse, Starke EMS station and jail. Brooker pulled a permit last January for work in its water plant. Churches were pulling permits last year, too, the most extensive one apparently belonging to New Bethel Baptist, which is constructing a new building. Property sales were up in Bradford County. A sales report generated on Dec. 30 showed 152 property transactions in 2013, compared to 113 in 2012. The vast majority were singlefamily homes. Sales totaled $15.25 million, which is more than $5 million more than 2012. The most acreage sold at once was the 109 acres of agricultural land on Northwest 198th Street Plum Creek sold to Len and Donna Eaves. The highest dollar transaction, however, was a single-family home on Lake Santa Fe that sold for $690,000. The property a few doors down sold for $585,000. Among commercial sales, the former ABC property where the Lending Bear located sold for $425,000. The apartment complex on Brownlee Road, which has also undergone some renovations, sold for $600,000. Continued from 1A Starke approves property cleanup BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The city of Starke matters into its own hands to deal with messy property owners. What to do when a property owner wont remedy code enforcement problemeven after being cited and fined and having a lien attached to their propertyhas been a problem for the city for a while. Commissioners have now approved an ordinance that will allow the city to clean up nuisance properties and charge the cost back to the property owner. Of course, a property owner who hasnt paid a fine isnt going to pay a landscaping bill, but the cost would be added to the charges against the property, and the nuisance will be taken care of. Affected citizens can petition the city commission to declare a parcel a nuisance property so that corrective action can be taken. There must be a history of violation on the property, including a lien at least six months old, stemming from prior citations. The petitioning party must be personally adversely affected by the code violation, and the city has to be able to develop a reasonable plan to correct the problem. There must be funding available to do so. Later, the property owner can petition to have the parcels nuisance designation removed, but not without evidence that the condition has been corrected and all code enforcement liens and fines have been paid. Until that time, the code enforcement officerand any designated employees and volunteers with himwill have the authority to enter the property and deal with code violations.Healthy Families helps parents BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor The New Year is a great time to get off to a good start and the Healthy Families program can help you do just that.

Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 3A Literacy focus of new high school event BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor In December, Bradford High School freshmen and sophomores had a new and exciting opportunity to participate in the schools firstever literacy fair. The concept is similar to the science fair that most students participated in at the middle school. Here, however, the project is not based on a scientific experiment but on an in depth study of a novel. Like the science fair, students choose their own projects and prepare presentations on what they learn. Teacher Lindley Adkins said the projects tested the students comprehension of what they read and allowed them to reflect on the development of the characters they were reading about. The literacy fair, held in the school media center, was the culmination of work that began in October and included the entire freshman and sophomore classes. The best of the best got to come here today, Adkins said. Project boards prepared by the students displayed a variety of information, from story synopses and analyses to original character illustrations and meaningful quotations from the material. They were also required to prepare papers on how their characters journeys related to the human condition. Mr. Boyer, the principal, actually brought the idea to us. He wanted to implement this in the school to get our kids reading, said Adkins. Teachers reviewed the book selections to make sure they were on grade level, but otherwise, the selection was up to the students. We wanted to inspire them to read. We wanted to create a love of reading with this. As judges circled the room and spoke to students, she said the students goal was to convince the judges their book was worth reading. The fiction chosen included popular novels like The Hunger Games, and classics like Uncle Toms Cabin, perennial favorites like The Hobbit, and lesser known works like Speak, which Malaysia Hall explained carried a powerful message about the psychological trauma of bullying and violence. The works were adventurous and full of fantasy, or dealt with weighty topics like race and recovering from rape. Students found the experience challenging but worth it. It was a confusing book, but I was glad I chose it, said Carson Elder of Beautiful Lies, a crime story unlike the stories she usually reads. I thought it was a great opportunity because without it I never would have found this great book. I mean it was so great, I read 40 chapters in one night, said Shane Shuman. Heather Tillman said the fair helped teach students how to go deeper into their books. More than just reading a page, you have to look into the page, she said. It has to do a lot more with comprehension than just reading a book and closing it. It made you more than just read the book, Bailey Forsyth said. You really had to dissect it. After the initial judging, the top projects from each class were judged again, with winners receiving rewards, including some cash prizes. Among the freshmen, first, second and third place went to Tessa Ricker, Taylor Cooper and Kassady Perkinson. Zahriah Collins and Jacob Patray were in fourth and fifth place. Chante McCray, Megan Brown and Hannah Thompson received honorable mention. Tessa Ricker also won the Overall Excellence in Literacy Award. Among the sophomores, first, second and third place went to Savannah Cooper, Madyson Varnes and Krystyn Rosenberger. Meghan Woods and Carson Elder were in fourth and fifth place. Malaysia Hall, Dylan Whittemore and Tamija McCray received honorable mention. Awards were contributed by Community State Bank, Walmart, local law enforcement and the Florida Twin Theatre. Judges were Sonya Baldree, Jim Biggs, Sally Crane, Chad Farnsworth, Robert Perone, Carrol Redding, Rick Stephens and Virginia Walkup. The literacy fair was presented by the high school in coordination with the Literacy Committee, which consists of Principal Bryan Boyer, Assistant Principal Anthony McCallum, Donna Tew, Dana Scaff, Lindley Adkins, Chris Chaplin, Beth Oody and Kristina Martin.

Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. Bradford County is blessed with a thriving Master Gardener Program, with many volunteers who have special talents and abilities. Wendy Helmey-Hartman, who lives in Keystone Heights, has been a Master Gardener since 2009 and is a PhD candidate in entomology (the study of insects) at the University of Florida. She contributes an interesting column called Whats Buggin You? to the extension offices quarterly newsletter. I found her piece on the citrus mealybug particularly helpful and wanted to share it with Across the Garden Fence readers. It is reprinted below with permission.Whats Buggin You?Native to Asia, the citrus mealybug is an unwelcome pest in Florida. This bug is found most commonly on citrus plants in greenhouses, but it can also be found on at least 27 ornamental plant varieties. Citrus mealybugs can be found throughout the southeastern United States as well as other parts of the country. Citrus mealybugs begin their lives within light yellow oval-shaped eggs that are deposited typically on the trunks and stems of citrus plants. A white, cotton-like mass is also found around the eggs, which are laid in clumps of five to 20. Eggs require approximately one week to one month to hatch. When the eggs hatch, the young nymphs emerge and are called crawlers. These juvenile mealybugs resemble their eggs as the juveniles are yellow and oval-shaped with red eyes. They are also covered with a white, waxy substance. These nymphs are most commonly found on the undersides of leaves, young twigs, and areas where leaves and/or fruits touch one another. Nymphs can also be found on fruit. Unusually, the juvenile males and females differ in their lifecyclethe females have four stages as nymphs while the males have three stages and then form a cocoon before becoming adults. Adult citrus mealybugs are 3 to 4.5 millimeters in length. The adult females are covered in white wax and have a gray stripe. They are somewhat fuzzy in appearance. Adult males are not covered in white wax but they do have a pair of wax threads projecting backwards from their bodies. Citrus mealybugs possess piercing mouthparts that they use to feed on plants. Their feeding causes wilting, distortion and yellowing of leaves. They can also cause premature leaf drop and contribute to the growth of sooty mold on plants as a result of the depositing of honeydew. Citrus mealybugs may be found throughout the year in Florida, but are most common in the spring and summer. Parasitic fungi and predacious insects provide natural control for the citrus mealybug. Additionally, rain can cause mortality if the bugs are washed from the plants. If the mealybug population grows too large, then other measures may be taken to reduce its damage.

Chief Osceola vs. Aubie. The Chop vs. War Eagle. Rowe vs. Rowe. When the Florida State Seminoles square off against the Auburn Tigers for the BCS Championship on Monday, Jan. 6, Jonathan and Shannon Rowe of Keystone Heightsand of the Bradford County business Rowe Enterprises Inc.will be in the stands at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., with their son, Andrew. Jonathan and Shannon will be wearing the orange and blue of Auburn, while Andrew will be wearing FSUs garnet and gold. It sounds like a house divided, but Andrew grew up an Auburn fan. Its just that hes a student at FSU. Shannon asked her son, What have you been telling everybody about the game? He answered, I cant lose. As an FSU student, though, Andrew is pulling for the Seminoles. However, if FSU wins, dont expect him to rub it in. Jonathan, a 1994 graduate of Auburns College of Engineering, reminded his son, I paid for the tickets. Shannon did not go to Auburn, but became a fan because of Jonathan. She admitted, however, that she does own some FSU items because of Andrew. She even has a cup Andrew gave her for her birthday that features the logos of both schools. As Shannon noted, the two schools dont normally play each other, so its fine for me to like both teams. Shannon Rowe has a little fun with her son, Andrew, who will be rooting for FSU at the BCS Championship game, while his mother and father, Jonathan, will be Jan. 3 to attend the Jan. 6 game. Make no mistake, though. Shannon is pulling for Auburn on Jan. 6. When asked if she was going to buy any game-related souvenirs, she said she wouldnt be coming home with much if Auburn lost. Shannon said the family wouldnt normally make such a trip as this, but the chance to see Auburn and FSU play each other in the last-ever BCS Championship game was too good to pass up. Its a lot of money for a football game, Shannon said, but with Andrew going to school (at FSU) and us playing each other, we went ahead and did it. The family was able to purchase tickets from an FSU booster, which, of course, means Jonathan and Shannon will be surrounded by FSU fans. Were not complaining because were very happy to have tickets, Shannon said. They were able to purchase their tickets at cost, which helped tremendously when considering the price of flights to California. Shannon said airfare was approximately $700 per person when the family first began looking at prices and when they were still unsure if they were going to get tickets. (The person they bought the tickets from wasnt sure how many hed actually get because of the high demand.) When the family did get their tickets, airfare had risen to approximately $1,000 per person. We would not be going if we had to pay more than face value for (game) tickets because flights were so expensive, Jonathan said. (Face value of a game ticket is in excess of $300.) The family will be joined by a friend of Jonathans who also went to Auburn. She works for a hotel, Shannon said of Jonathans friend. Were getting her employee rate, so that made it a little easier as well. Too bad we dont have a friend who works for the airline. While in California, Jonathan said hed like to take in some well-known sites you see featured on television, such as Venice Beach, and added hed like to eat somewhere in Chinatown. The family is flying to California on Friday, Jan. 3, and returning early Tuesday, Jan. 7, so theyll have some time to enjoy some activities outside of the game. Were renting a car, so I think all day Saturday and all day Sunday were going sightseeing, Shannon said. I think Monday, our plans just to get up and head to the game and tailgate. It became apparent as the season went on that FSU was a serious contender for a BCS Championship spot. Andrew said the game for him that started him See BCS, 8B

Dear Editor: To my friends colleagues and acquaintances.   Im Jack Sapp, a lifelong resident of   Union County.   My wife, Carolyn our daughter and grand children were all educated in Union County.   Ive been a   r egistered voter since I was eighteen.   I served 37 + years with the   Florida Dept of Corrections and retired as Warden. I would like to ask each of you to join me in recommending Brad Whitehead to fill the position of Sheriff, succeeding his late father Jerry Whitehead.   Brad has been preparing for the position for many years and had planned to run for the office   upon his fathers retirement..   However, the Dear Editor: In communities where churches decorate most street comers, one would imagine the occupants to be peace loving and joyful, I mean, despite denominational differences, most members of religious institutions have surrendered their lives lo be ambassadors for Christ recreating the love, grace, and mercy he demonstrated while on earth. How we, as Christians, treat others is a reflection of Christ. As the new year begins, take a moment to evaluate the past years ambassadorship. Did we, as Christians, reflect Christs love and mercy or did we use Christianity as an excuse to reflect our own beliefs? Did the language of the holidays offend you? A few of my students work in businesses where they were instructed to wish people Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. Many commented how angry customers lectured them on the holiness of Christmas. These poor workers deserve better. Many of them are struggling students, single parents, or the working elderly. If Jesus had a meltdown every time he was verbally insulted, Christians might be justified exhibiting similar behavior. But he didnt. The more insults he suffered, the more love he offered. As ambassadors, showing the love of Christ, the whole point of Christmas, should be our gift to others. And I often say Happy Holidays because there are two holidays, not one, celebrated within a week of one another. How did Christian ambassadorship work in political arenas this past year? Was being associated with a political party more important than loving others, no matter their beliefs? Its interesting, especially being part of the educational system, how many Christian parents teach their children respect for others, and yet, due to their political affiliation, this respect is often selective. Romans 13:12 states, Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God (NLT). However, conversations around town and many entries posted on social media not only demonstrate disrespect to authority but also mock the teachings of the Bible. Jesus wasnt a member of a political party. He loved and cared for all people, so hopefully our children will see through our inconsistencies and choose to represent Christ, not man. They, too, will one be ambassadors for their beliefs. Ambassadorship doesnt involve judging others (Matthew 7:1-5), We should be ecstatic we have one less responsibility in our job description. Yet, we judge. And, in our judgment, we delegate people to hell when we have no authority to do so, especially since Christ paid for everyones sins with his life, if we make people believe they go to hell for their sins, weve proclaimed Christs death a hoax, a traitorous action, When we judge others for any reason, our actions proclaim we are God, not his representatives. And when we attack nonbelievers for not behaving or believing appropriately, we shouldnt be surprised theyre not interested in learning more about Christ, A New Years resolution for Christians to represent Christ Help support Brad Whitehead for UC sheriff Who do people see?for who he is and not for who we think he is a wonderful concept, especially for those people who have never met him. If people saw the Christ represented in the Bible when they met us, they might want to know more about him. Unfortunately, according to Forbes.com only 8% of those making resolutions stick to them. In this new year, who will people see when they meet you? Kathleen Conner Combass untimely death of his father has left the position to be filled by appointment, by Governor Rick Scott. I have watched Brad over the years, earning his certifications and working in law enforcement as an investigator with the State Fire Marshals Office, investigator with Inspector Generals Office   Department of Corrections, Deputy Sheriff Union   County and Administrator (Assistant Warden)   Department of Corrections.   No doubt   Brads well qualified to hold the Office of Sheriff, Union County. Please join me in contacting Governor Rick Scott and recommend he appoint Brad Whitehead to the position of Sheriff of Union County. Log onto:   flgov.com/contactgov-scott or find the address and Phone #. Thank you, and please continue to keep the Whitehead family in your prayers. Jack Sapp Lake Butler Letters editor@bctelegraph.com A half-gallon of milk was 39 cents, while 2 pounds of Red Delicious apples could be purchased for 29 cents. If you wanted to make some burgers, 5 pounds of ground beef could be had for $1.98. Those were some of the prices touted in a Winn-Dixie ad in the Jan. 2, 1964, edition of the Bradford County Telegraph. That issue also featured an ad for the Florida Theatre, which proclaimed, Come at your own risk, in regard to the movie Blood Feast, touted as the bloodiest, goriest picture you have ever seen! The ad assured viewers that a special nurse would be on duty, along with an ambulance and two attendants. Were not sure how people reacted to the movie in question, but what we do know is that the following were some of the stories that made up that issue. Just as we presented a look at the Christmas week issue of the Telegraph from 50 years ago, heres what took place 50 years ago leading up to New Years Day:Bradford sales and income upAccording to detailed economic reports for the 12-month period ending June 30, 1963, Bradford County made solid gains in retail sales and per capital income to share in the business surge prevalent in most of the country. The report, showing that wages went up for most working people, and spending rose proportionately, has just been released by the Standard Rate and Data Service. The volume of business chalked up by retail merchants in Bradford County reached $13,495,000 during the 12-month period, topping the previous years $12,258,000, according to the report. The gain, amounting to 9.9 percent, compares favorably with that in the U.S. as a whole, which was 5.9 percent. In Florida, the overall increase was 7.4 percent. Locally, as well as nationally, the advance was along a broad front, with most lines of business benefiting from the increase in consumer spending. New cars accounted for a large part of the total retail volume. Sales of appliances, including such major hard goods as refrigerators, washers and dryers, were considerably higher. Much of the upward push took place in the second half of the year, when public confidence in the economy was fully restored. It showed itself in a general loosening of the purse strings, which had been held in some restraint ever since the stock market debacle of 1962. The report shows that Bradford County residents had a net spendable income in the year, after paying their taxes, of $15,622,000. In fiscal 1962, it was $14,256,000. It amounted to $4,463 in disposable income, on the average, per local household. The economic indicators point to a continuation of good business in 1964, even though the unemployment problem in some areas is still unabated. Optimism concerning the years prospects is more general than it has been since 1960. The biggest factor is the consuming public, which has more money to spend than ever before.Divorce rate in Bradford higher than U.S. averageThe divorce rate in Bradford County is not an enviable one. Although it has not reached the size that it has in some parts of the country, it is, nevertheless, higher than the average. As a result of families splitting up locally, there are now 505 men and women in the county who are listed as divorced or separated. Of the total, 252 are divorced, and 253 are separated. The figures are based on a survey recently made by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and on data gathered by the Department of Commerce. They show that in Bradford County, 60 local residents out of every 1,000 over the age of 14 are either divorced or separated. That is a higher ratio than is reported for most of the United States, the average being 43 per 1,000. In Florida, it is 58 per 1,000. Growing attention is being paid to the divorce situation Stories the new year brought in 1964...See 1964, 4B

According to the arrest report, a deputy was called to the area in reference to a disturbance at a home. The deputy observed Williams standing at the front door of the home, yelling loudly at the occupants about them owing him $5. The deputy told Williams to lower his voice as he was causing a disturbance to the neighbors. Williams refused to stop yelling, and instead began rapping a song about the occupants owing him $5. After Williams refused numerous orders by the deputy to leave the home and to stop singing and yelling, he was arrested and transported to the Union jail and charged with disorderly conductdisturbing the peace.Rapping about money owed leads to arrestLemuel Leander Cooper, 26, and Afernee Antonio Hayes, 19, both of Melrose, were arrested Dec. 29 by Bradford deputies after a chase that started at Club LA on C.R. 225 east of Lawtey ended on U.S. 301 several miles south of Lawtey. According to the arrest report, a Bradford deputy came upon a vehicle stopped in the middle of the road at the club. When the deputy activated his lights to get the vehicle to pull over, it sped off on C.R. 225 toward Lawtey, crossing U.S. 301 and then turning south on C.R. 200A. The vehicle then got back on U.S. 301 south of Lawtey, twice crossing over into the northbound lane while still going south. The vehicle then slowed down, and the driver, later identified as Cooper, jumped out and ran across the highway to the area of Northwest 198th Street. Hayes was detained in the vehicle, while several deputies went after Cooper, getting him to surrender after threatening to bring in a K-9 tracking dog. Drugs were found in the vehicle and on the suspects at the jail. Cooper was arrested and charged with reckless driving, driving while license suspended or revoked, resisting an officer, possession of cocaine and trafficking in cocaine. Hayes was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, trafficking of cocaine, smuggling contraband into the jail and for resisting an officer. No bail was set for either suspect.2 arrested for after chase Arrests in Bradford, Clay and UnionThe following individuals were arrested recently by local law enforcement officers in Bradford, Union or Clay (Keystone Heights area) counties: BradfordLarry Lee Brooks, 20, of Starke was arrested Dec. 27 by Bradford deputies for battery and for aggravated battery. According to the arrest report, Brooks attacked his own grandparents physically, choking both at some point and throwing a brick at his grandfather, hitting him in the arm. Brooks also used a hammer to put holes in the victims walls and to crush his own cell phone. When the grandparents tried to leave the residence, Brooks got in the car with them and made them take him to Baker County. Later in the day, after the victims went to the sheriffs office to file a report, Brooks was located at McDonalds in Starke and arrested. His bail was set at $30,000.

The child had other bruisings that Danella said could have come from spankings he gave the child, or from the child himself hitting his head against the wall or his bedpost on his own.

Before she could get the door locked, he grabbed the other victim and pulled her outside, causing her to fall on the ground. He then kicked the victim on the ground in the back of the head before his mother pulled his shirt over his head, allowing the other victim to run in the house, lock the door and call 911.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Some of the debris from a Nov. 22, 1952, plane crash that claimed the life of Starkes Robert A. Owen has just recently been uncovered as part of an ongoing recovery process that was initially hampered by foul weather and avalanche conditions in Alaska. Its a little closure, said Owens nephew, who is also named Robert Owen. I can remember my mom and some of them saying, I just dont know if he was in that plane or not when it went down. He definitely was listed as the radio operator on the manifest. Robert A. Owen, who was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Owen, was in the Army and preparing for a return to Korea. He was on board a Douglas C-124 Globemastera plane often referred to as Old Shaky that crashed into Mount Gannett on a flight from McChord Air Force Base in Washington State. According to information posted on the Korean War Educator website, the plane was minutes away from landing at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. They crashed into the top of the mountainprobably about 60 feet short of the top, the younger Robert Owen said. They were just that close to getting over it. The crash, which killed all 52 members on board the plane, was apparently the result of bad weather. Douglas Beckstead, the historian of the 673rd Air Base Wing at Joint Base ElmendorfRichardson, reviewed copies of the official incident reports, according to a June 28, 2012, Stars and Stripes story that was posted on the Korean War Educator website. Beckstead said the plane was flying blind, having to rely upon the altimeter, a stopwatch and a radio signal to navigate its way to its destination. because of the effect that it has on the lives of so many adults and, more especially, on their children. In the past year, there were more than 400,000 divorces in the U.S. They have markedly changed the lives of 800,000 men and women and of their nearly 500,000 children. While the number of divorces keeps going up in line with the expansion of our population, there has been no increase in the rate itself. Actually, the divorce rate per 1,000 people has been dropping since 1946, when the all-time high of 610,000 divorces was recorded. This avalanche was attributed to the marital difficulties connected with hasty wartime marriages and with the long separations that ensued. Many of the people who found that their marriages were not made in heaven, and who were subsequently divorced, have remarried, the figures show. According to the governments figures, for every person in the U.S. who has been divorced and who has not remarried, there are 2.5 others, once divorced, who have remarried.10 4-H clubs to be organized by assistantBradford Countys new assistant county agent, Bobby Lee Taylor, is in the process of forming 10 4-H clubs early in the new year. We plan to have clubs in Lawtey, Brooker, Hampton and Starke, Taylor said, and each club will hold meetings twice a month. Taylor was employed by the county commission recently to assist County Agent G.T. Huggins, with emphasis on developing a strong 4-H program in the county.Bradford Countians are reading moreBradford Countians are reading more, according to the monthly report for November by the Santa Fe Regional Library. The figures show a circulation of 2,001 books during last November as compared with 1,597 during the same month last year. During the first 11 months of 1963, the library circulated 3,920 books as compared with 3,240 in the same period of 1962.Despite saying never again, Norman not through with berriesSix years ago, Harold Norman said that he was through with strawberriesthat hed never plant another crop. Today, hes back in the business, bigger than ever, with 25.5 acres of Florida 90s no mean crop by anybodys standards. During the peak of the forthcoming season, he will employ 60 or more hands to harvest his crop, with a payroll running in the neighborhood of $3,500 per week. His berries will be flown to New York and other eastern markets by plane, 1964Continued from 2B assuring maximum freshness and quality on arrival. For one who was through with berries just six years ago, this sounds like a pretty big operation, but in his discouragement at that time, Harold was voicing the sentiments of Bradford growers in general who, since about 1953, had been beat by declining fields on their plantings of the old Missionary strain, mulched with grass and plagued by sting nematodes. Mr. Norman attributes the strawberry comeback almost entirely to three factors, chief of which is the new black, plastic mulching. The last year I used grass, mulching it was murder, Norman said. We just couldnt get a yield. In addition to plastic mulch, other factors contributing to the revitalized industry are: the improved new variety, Florida 90, which has replaced the old Missionary berry; soil testing, with lime applications to correct pH factor; and soil fumigation to kill sting nematodes. The story of the comeback is recalled by County Agent G.T. Huggins, who says: When I first came to Bradford County in 1953, I didnt know a strawberry plant from a guava. Berry plants were withering away and not yielding as they should. Farmers were discouraged and baffled. Huggins started in to educate himself regarding strawberries and sought help from the agricultural extension service and the Florida Experiment Station at the University of Florida. Dr. Donald Coe, then extension plant pathologist, made a trip here and diagnosed the trouble as sting nematodes. This was determined by taking plants to the laboratory in Gainesville for screening. This process revealed as many 500 nematodes infesting the roots and a handful of surrounding soil on a single plant. In 1954, test plots were established in Bradford County to determine the effect of fumigating and liming the soil. Comparative results showed this to be the answer to the strawberry problem as far as soil conditioning was concerned. In a comparison of treated and untreated rows, it was found that, at bearing time, plants in the untreated rows were just half the size of those that had been treated. Thanks to these efforts, Bradford County strawberry growers are back in the business. Production per acre has tripled and, in some cases, quadrupled or even more. Before the improvement program got underway, the average yield per acre was around 250 12-pint flats. Now, yields of 800 flats per acre are common; 1,000 flats per acre are not unusual; and last year, Norman hit a phenomenal high of over 1,500 flats per acre on part of his planting.Gas station ban appears deadStarkes proposed ordinance to restrict construction of new gasoline stations in the city appeared this week to have died aborning. Council Chairman Ruby B. Johns said the proposal as vigorously opposed by just about everybody who owns property along highways through the town. She said at least 25 people had either called her on the phone or appeared in person to protest the proposed measure. George Pierce of the firm Thomas and Pierce, city attorneys, said he had made no move to draw up the ordinance as instructed by the council at its meeting of Dec. 17. Pierce said that due to property owned by a member of the firm, there would be a conflict of interest with the new ordinance. He said if the council insisted that the ordinance be drawn up, other counsel would have to be employed. The councils initial action was taken when a delegation appeared at its Dec. 17 meeting, presenting a petition signed by 17 service station operators, asking for a ban on the construction of new service stations in the city within 450 yards of any existing station, church, hospital or place of public gathering. In line with the request, council instructed attorney Pierce to draw up an ordinance, patterned after ordinances said to be used by other towns in the area, and the council proposed to meet the following day, Dec. 18, to ratify the measure. Mrs. Johns said yesterday, however, that the special meeting was not held and that nothing further had been done due to the storm of protest aroused by the measure. We decided it needed a lot more study, she said. A.J. Thomas of Thomas and Pierce said that when the proposed ordinance became known, at least 15 owners of property along U.S. 301 registered strong objections. Thomas concurred with the protest, saying, Were not going to lock up progress around here. He went on to term the proposal discriminatory and unconstitutional. By that line of reasoning, he said it could be service stations today, drug stores tomorrow and any other business that was selected as a target. He went on to explain that the proposed action was a matter of rezoning, which would have to be handled in the customary way, with public hearings as outlined by laws governing such proposals. Chief spokesman for the petitioning group was John A. Torode, who said that Starkes 30-odd service stations are already more than are needed here. He said there is hardly a station in town that hasnt laid off one or two attendants in recent weeks, and that two stations have been forced to close. The ordinance, as requested, would have granted a 90-day period of grace during which anyone desiring to could construct a new station.House-hunting couple left stranded as passenger takes carThe only disruption of the holiday spirit sufficiently serious for the Bradford County Sheriffs Department to issue a warrant was an automobile stolen from a Jacksonville couple on a house-hunting expedition near Hampton last Thursday. Mrs. Mildred Ayers, owner of the 1949 Chevrolet sedan, and her husband were inside a house they expected to rent when another passenger, Joe Simmons, 35, of Jacksonville, drove off in the car, leaving the couple stranded. Simmons drove the stolen car to St. Augustine, according to Deputy Sheriff Robert Green, taking with him a fourth passenger, Wilbur F. Daniels, also of Jacksonville. The Ayers couple, Simmons and Daniels all have addresses on Sheridan Street in Jacksonville. In St. Augustine, Simmons sold the car for $50 to Robert Alexander, a trustie prisoner and mechanic in the St. Johns County stockade. Both Simmons and Daniels then made their way to Jacksonville, where they were arrested by Duval authorities after being identified by the Ayers. Simmons has been charged on a warrant issued in Bradford County with larceny of an automobile and is being held in the Duval County Jail until he can be brought to Starke. Daniels has not been charged as yet and has been released from custody. The automobile has also been recovered, Deputy Green said. Mrs. Norman and sister-in-law Sandra Norman grade According to the Korean War Educator website, a Northwest Orient Airlines pilot deciphered a scratchy radio signal from the plane: As long as we have to land, we might as well land here. The plane, which was apparently experiencing a malfunction of some kind, plowed full speed into Mount Gannett. Lt. Thomas Sullivan and Civil Air Patrol Lt. Terris Moore spotted the planes tail section sticking out of the snow six days after the crash, according to the June 28, 2012, Stars and Stripes story, which also included the observation that the crash triggered an avalanche and that the debris was scattered across approximately 2 acres and covered by 8 feet of fresh snow. An Anchorage Daily News story reported that a recovery crew set out on Nov. 29, 1952. Because of weather conditions, the crew had to establish a base camp at 5,500 feet, which was 8 miles from where the tail section was located by Sullivan and Moore. Crew members suffered frostbite and had to dig each other out of the snow as the sides of their tents collapsed, causing members to be trapped in their sleeping bags by the accumulating snow. The crew reached the tail section on Dec. 9, but further recovery was called off because of blizzard conditions. When Alaska National Guardsmen, who were aboard a Blackhawk helicopter, spotted the wreckage in June 2012, it was located more than 12 miles from the original crash site, trapped within a glacier that has swallowed up and revealed debris over time. The scattered wreckage has apparently been slowly moving with the glacier for 60 years, Army Capt. Jamie Dobson was quoted as saying in the June 28, 2012, Stars and Stripes story. A July 10, 2013, Reuters story written by Yereth Rosen quotes forensic anthropologist Gregory See CRASH, 6B An ad for Winn-Dixie shows some of the prices in 1964. Robert A. Owen was killed in a plane crash in Alaska prior to a return to Korea in 1952. His nephew, named Robert Owen, said he heard his Owen described as a happy, go-lucky kind of fellow who liked to play tricks and do things like that.

Owners & Operators Kathy Rensberger & Leisha Boyd Any avid hunter would enjoy the movie Jeremiah Johnson, and any avid hunter who has seen the movie would never forget the shrill call of a red tail hawk or the haunting bugle of an elk as they echoed off the mountain peaks and through the valleys of the Rocky Mountains. Dwayne Hardee has heard the call of a red tail hawk and the bugle of an elk, and he has heard them from Maybell, Colo. Not only has he heard elk; he has hunted and bagged them.   As a matter of fact, he brought home one bull and one cow from this years hunting trip. That surely is a major accomplishment for any serious hunter. They are big, awesome animals, Hardee said. Actually, many bulls will weigh over 500 pounds, and though rarelysome of the larger Roosevelt subspecies have gone over 1,000 pounds. Additionally, they have huge and impressive racks. Fins, Fur & Tails in ColoradoDwayne Hardee with the bull elk he bagged this year in Colorado. Hardee indicated that hunters vary in their techniques for elk. Sometimes, they will use a stand near areas the elk frequent.   Likewise, some people prefer to hunt and walk. Apparently, some areas are covered well with trees, but Hardee specified that you can also see into next week in other areas. He personally moved around a little and used natural blinds. When asked about his personal equipment, he indicated that he did not use anything special. You do have a lot less cover compared to Florida, and your gun has to be able to reach out well. He personally used a 7mm Magnum, and he did not use any cover scent. When asked if he had ever seen the movie Jeremiah Johnson, Hardee answered, About a thousand times. River Quinn displays a really nice crappie caught in Santa Fe Lake. Hardee added he would not mind living in Colorado if it wasnt for the blistering cold and the unbelievable amount of snow.   Outdoors outlookRegarding local freshwater fishing, the mercury has barely touched the freezing temperature on the thermometer this year, the migratory birds are late and the crappie spawn is late as well. Plenty of crappie are being caught, with Newnans, Lochloosa, Cresent and Rodman lakes starring in the performance. Jeff Fitts, who lives in Keystone Heights and fishes professionally and guides on some central Florida lakes, has been successful, bringing home more than his share of crappie this year, but admits that they have not crowded the shoreline or near shoreline cover for their typical December spawn.   Fitts indicates, however, that they have congregated into their cool-weather schools, and if you can locate them, they are easily caught. He suggests that the bite is better when the barometric pressure is stable or rising. T.C. Lloyd, who also fishes and guides pan fishermen on central Florida lakes, believes that there has just not been enough cool water to trigger the spawning cycle and looks for the bedding cycle to come to fruition in January. Lloyd also has experienced no difficulty in locating the specks in their winter schools. The crappie might not be in the maiden cane or the lily pads in Santa Fe Lake, but they are schooling. River Quinn can attest to that.   The speck he is holding in the attached photo appears to be one of the larger ones produced in the area this year. Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle reiterates that some nice crappies are coming out of Santa Fe and the Camp Blanding lakes. Regarding inshore saltwater fishing on the west coast, all the reports seem to be good on speckled trout. Both Captain Randy Harris and Gary Simpson are full of success stories throughout the Big Bend area. Regarding inshore saltwater fishing on the east coast, the reports are more diversified.   Whiting still appear to be prolific along the beaches, and trout and reds are still caught in the lower St Johns and the Intracoastal.   The best reports seem to surround the sheepshead catches around the docks, pilings and jetties on the east coast. Many of the striped fish are quite large, and the catch is prolific. Tight lines, safe hunting and a happy New Years.   Outdoors calendar Jan. 12, second phase of Floridas dove season ends; Jan. 15, deer season ends in south Georgia; Jan. 19, antler ed deer season ends in Floridas Zone C.

Berg as saying, As the glacier melts and the glacier moves, more material comes up to the surface. No one aboard the plane has been positively identified by recovered remains, but the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command expected such results to soon be forthcoming, according to a July 8, 2013, Anchorage Daily News story written by Lisa Demer. The news story reported that collected remains are labeled by location, kept in a morgue cooler and shipped to a laboratory in Oahu, Hawaii, where an attempt to match the remains with relatives DNA is made. Right now, Im waiting on anybody to contact me to see if they want to get samples to try to compare DNA, Owen told the Telegraph-Times-Monitor. Owen said if his uncles remains are recovered and identified, and later buried, he would like to at least make one trip to the burial site. For now, though, its just wait and see. The main thing is that there is some certainty in regard to what happened to his uncle. Owen said he thought some of the Telegraph-Times-Monitor readers would like to be informed.CRASHContinued from 4B I know there are a few people here in town who probably still remember him, he said.

Call Street Starke, FL 904-964-5764 Fax 904-964-6905 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If this seasons BCS Championship is anything like the last one Shane Reddish went to, then the Florida State Seminoles will be celebrating their third national title. Shane and his wife, Audrey, will be attending this years game in Pasadena. It will be the first BCS Championship game Audrey has ever been to, but not the first for Shane. He attended the 2000 game that was played in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. FSU defeated Virginia Tech 46-29. Now, 14 years later, the Seminoles are once again on college footballs biggest stage. Shane said hes surprised it took so long for the school to be back in that position. Thats kind of why were going, Shane said. We dont know how long its going to be until we get back there. Shane noted the similarities between this years FSU team and the one that won that won the schools last national championship. Like that team, this years team is undefeated and has a Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback. (Chris Weinke, who quarterbacked the 1999 team, actually won his Heisman Trophy the season following the national championship.) Sounds like a couple of good reasons for Shane to feel good about this teams chances. Hopefully, I can make it two for two, he said. Shane grew up an FSU fan. (His father, Mike, is an FSU graduate.) His wife became a fan after they started dating. I was a Gator fan, Audrey said, laughing. Everybody knows. I was a diehard Gator fan. She had no problem making the switch, though Shane said, She didnt have a choice. The Starke couple went to this years ACC Championship in Charlotte, N.C. FSU won yet another game in convincing fashion, defeating Duke 45-7. It was the 10th game in 13 the Seminoles had won by at least 30 points. Once we won the game, we got home and put in our request to see if we could get (BCS Championship) tickets, Audrey said. Shane said they were hoping they could get four so they could take their children, but they received just two. Our sons not happy, Audrey said. Hes 13, and hes mad. He thinks he should be going. Audrey and Shane will actually be staying in Las Vegas, flying out of Florida on Friday, Jan. 3. Shane said it was more inexpensive that flying into and staying in Californiaeven after a price increase. The week before the ACC title game, we looked at the prices, Shane said. I shouldve booked it then, but I didnt know if we could get (game) tickets. The week after, the price doubled. Theyve got some kind of big convention going on in Las Vegas, but we still got very, very good rates. Audrey said the plan is to drive to Pasadena on the day of the game, though Shane said that could change. We might leave Sunday night and take in some sights Monday, he said. The Seminoles were talked about as possible national-title contenders going into the season. Shane said he felt good about his teams chances of getting to the BCS Championship after a 63-0 win over Maryland. It was pretty much downhill after that, he said, especially with Florida and how things were with them with all the injuries and everything. One of the catalysts for FSUs success has been the play of freshman quarterback Jameis Winston. Shane said he has been very impressed with the quarterbacks poise all season and believes Winston will continue to shine. I feel very comfortable going in there on that big stage, Shane said. (Winston) wants the spotlight. I think hell perform well. Thats going to make the rest of the team comfortable. Jan. 6 will be a special day for Winston in more ways than one. Its his birthday that day, Audrey said. He turns 20 on the day he plays. A win would make a great birthday present, and Shane thinks Winston will get it. He thinks the game will start out close, but believes that in the end, FSUs defense will outperform Auburns. I think the second halfs going to be our half, Shane said. Thats when were going to put it away, I believe. In fact, Shanes already envisioned how the game will start. He said FSU will punt the first time it has the ball. Both teams will then trade a couple of scores before Auburn punts twice, with FSU scoring following each change of possession. Audrey looked at her husband in amazement and asked, Youve just got it all figured out, dont you? Shane said he has heard a lot of talk in the area about the strength of the SEC, but that doesnt concern him. He mentioned how FSU managed to score 37 points against a Florida team that had one of the countrys better defenses. Plus, when he looks at Auburns defense, he sees a unit that gave up 42 points to Missouri in the SEC Championship game. The fact that Auburn has run the ball so well this year is a bit of a concern, Shane said, noting that Boston College running back Andre Williams averaged 5 yards per carry and gained 154 yards on the FSU defense. Boston College never reached the end zone, though, on a running play. Our first-string defense has not allowed a rushing touchdown all season, Shane said. That speaks volumes right there Shane is predicting a final score of 42-21 in favor of FSU. Audrey said she thought it was going to be closer, but after giving it some thought, she, too, predicted a double-digit FSU win by the score of 34-18. No matter what happens, Shane said he and his wife will be bringing back some souvenirs from this last-ever BCS game for themselves and others. Regardless of the outcome, weve got to buy some authentic gear out there for a couple of people, Shane said. Ive got a list of stuff Ive got to bring back. thinking about Pasadena was the Oct. 19 road game against Clemson, whom FSU defeated 51-14. When we hit Clemson pretty hard, that was kind of my first time (thinking about the national championship), Andrew said. This was supposed to be a pretty close game, and we shelled them. Andrew became even more confident of his teams chances after a 41-14 win over Miami on Nov. 14. I had a good feeling we were going, Andrew said. As long as we beat Miamithat was pretty much the one. After that, it was kind of downhill. As the Seminoles kept steamrolling opponentsthey won 13 games by an average margin of 42 pointsAuburn was slowly building momentum after a 35-21 loss to LSU in the fourth week of the season. The Tigers were coming off of a 3-9 season in which they failed to win one SEC game in 2012, so they werent talked about as a possible national championship contender. If you follow football at all, then you surely know of the game-winning plays the Tigers had against Georgia and Alabama in the latter stages of the season. A 73-yard reception off of a tipped pass on a fourthand-18 play with 25 seconds left resulted in a 43-38 win over Georgia, while a 100-yard return (109 unofficially) of a missed field goal on the last play of the game resulted in a 34-28 win over Alabama. Its pretty amazing the year we had to get there, Jonathan said. (FSU) pretty much rolled through the whole year. As you saw, we had some really close stuff along the way. Thats not just the last two (regular-season games). We started slow and struggled, and, of course, lost to LSU. Auburn defeated Missouri 59-42 to win the SEC championship. Tiger fans then had to hope for a Michigan St. win over Ohio St. in the Big 10 Championship game. An Ohio St. victory most likely wouldve put the Buckeyes in the national championship game against FSU. Michigan St. won 34-24. That was a very tense night, Shannon said. First, we won our game. Then we had to wait another four hours to find out how Ohio St. was going to do. For Jonathan, the Alabama game was the highlight of the season. The return of the missed field goal is obviously the play everyone talks about, but Jonathan said he liked his teams chances even if that play had not been made. If that kick goes wide another 3 yards, we still win in overtime, I think, he said. Though the Alabama game was a highlight for her as well, Shannon said what she has really enjoyed this season is watching the game as called by Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn. I dont know a lot about football, but I know enough to know Gus does some crazy stuff Ive never seen before, Shannon said. That is so fun for me to watch. Andrew chimed in and said, She likes the double reverses, flea flickers and all the trick plays. Though hes been cheering the Seminoles on this season, Andrew said he still kept up with how the Auburn Tigers were doing. He even wore an Auburn shirt on campus after the Tigers win over Alabama. I still care about them, he said. I still watch the games. Shannon said Andrew really wanted the Seminoles to play Alabama in the BCS Championship game, setting FSU up for the chance to defeat a team that won three of the last four national championships. Andrews happy with the way things played out in the end, though, saying the Seminoles have a worthy opponent. I really didnt want to play Ohio St. I knew they were not the caliber of team the hype had been portraying, he said. FSU is favored to beat Auburn, but Jonathan and Shannon feel their team is capable of winning. Shannon said she thinks the Tigers have an advantage of playing in the SEC, which she thinks is a stronger conference than the ACC. You could assume the SEC team will win, she said, but these teams are so different. We havent played anybody like FSU; FSU hasnt played anybody like Auburn. Jonathan said he thinks a key is for the Tigers to get to FSU quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. I think we stand a really good chance if we can get penetration and get to Winston, Jonathan said. Nobodys had their hands on him this year, but hes a freshman. If you can put your hands on him a couple of times, you can definitely get in his head, I think. Andrew doesnt buy into that theory because of the speed of wide receivers Rashad Greene and Kenny Shaw. They can get down the field in a hurry, Andrew said. Even if you get pressure on Winston, I think he can scramble and handle his own. Andrew did say hes with his mother on the belief the SEC is a better conference than the ACC. So, how will it all end? Jonathan said he can see a lowscoring affair, but believes itll be more along the lines of 49-45 in favor of Auburn. I dont think that score is finalized until the last two minutes of the game, Jonathan said. If the game is close late, Shannon said she believes in her teams chances, just like one of Auburns most famous football players. Bo Jackson says were a fourth-quarter team, Shannon said, with Jonathan adding, Thats right, and Bo knows. Andrew, of course, believes the Seminoles will win, though he can see a lot of points being put up because of Winston and Auburn running back Tre Mason. I think its going to be a really good game, Andrew said.BCSContinued from 1B Audrey and Shane Reddish are looking forward to celebrating an FSU national title in person when they attend the Jan. 6 BCS Championship in Pasadena, Calif.
