Times Staff Writer
The state of Florida is in its
final planning stages to place a
workcamp at the Reception
and Medical Center (RMC) in
Lake Butler.
The camp will house 262
minimal security inmates. It
will require an additional 50 to
60 new correctional officers to
run the facility. It will cost the
state $6.8 million to construct
the new facility. Projected
completion date for the project
'is June 2006.
Department of Corrections
spokesman Sterling Ivey said
the camp would be built


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

Revisions in
environmental standards
released by the Florida
Department of
Environmental Protection
could be costly for local
counties.
Frank Darabi, the engineer
for the New River Solid
Waste Association, said DEP
has changed the standard for
acceptable levels of arsenic
in drinking water, and this
could lead to expensive
cleanup at the closed
landfills in Bradford, Baker
and Union counties.
"Most of the counties have
received a letter from DEP


adjacent to RMC's west unit.
"The camp will help fill a vital
need in the prison system,"
said Ivey.
RMC was established in
1968 to house male inmates.
Its primary function is to
process newly committed
inmates into the correctional
system. Its secondary function
is to provide primary medical
care to inmates in the system.
RMC is divided into three
sections. The first of these
sections is known as the main
unit. It has six open bay
housing units and one cell
housing unit.
Open bay units house
inmates in a fashion similar to
military style barracks.


saying they've changed the
criteria for arsenic to a lower
level," Darabi said.
Some of the old landfills
have shown trace amounts of
arsenic, he said, that at the
time were below DEP's
threshold. But what may
have been acceptable in the
past could currently be
considered a violation.
"Nothing has changed, but
the rule has changed,"
Darabi said.
Effective Jan. 1, the
standard has been lowered
from 0.050 mg/L (milligrams
per liter) to 0.010 mg/L.
According to DEP's Web
site, "This change also
affects water reuse and land
application projects.
See RULES, p. 8A


Inmates that are minimal
security risk and interact well
with other inmates are housed
in these areas. Cell housing
units house inmates in one or
two man cells. The cells allow
officers to keep a close watch
on higher risk inmates.
The main unit is capable of
holding 1,338 inmates at any
given time. The facility
requires 760 full-time
correctional employees to
watch over the unit.
RMC's west unit is under
the direct supervision of the
main unit. The unit has seven
open bay housing units. Its
total capacity stands at 889
inmates. A staff of 207
watches over the population.


The unit also facilitates three
public work squads.
RMC Hospital is a fully
licensed 144 bed hospital. The
facility has 116 beds for acute
care and 38 beds for
psychiatric care. RMC also
maintains a 28 bed unit at
Columbia Memorial Medical
Center in Jacksoville.
The squads, work throughout
communities to. help them
reduce their labor costs.
"Inmate work crews save the
city thousands of dollars every
year," said Lake Butler City
Manager Richard Tillis. Union
County also benefits from the
program. It recently got a
second crew to help clean
debris from the sides of the


Seven competing to be Ms.


county's roads.
Both the main and west units
offer inmates a variety of
services to help them get their
lives back on track. Substance
abuse programs such as
Alcoholics Anonymous and
Narcotics Anonymous help
inmates with their addictions.
Help with smoking addiction is
available at both 'facilities as
well.
Library .services are
available to inmates at both
units. The main unit houses a
major law library while the
west unit houses a minor one.
No academic or vocational
programs are currently. offered

Anderson named Union County

School Board employee of the year


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
If you ask Denise Anderson
what she enjoys most about her
job she'll tell you it's the
people.
Anderson was recently
named the Union County
School Board employee of the
year by her fellow workers.
She has been with the school
system more than five years.
She began as a secretary in the
personnel department. She has
also worked in the school
system's curriculum
department.
Three months ago Anderson
took over for Peggy Cason,
secretary to Superintendent
Carlton Faulk. "It was an easy
transition because I would fill
in for her when she was gone,"
said Anderson.
Before coming to the school
board she spent 22 years with
the Department of Corrections
as a secretary at both the
Reception and Medical Center
and Florida State Prison.
"They moved the personnel
office over to Gainesville and I
wanted to work closer to
home," Anderson said. She
found an opportunity with the
school board and never looked
back.
In her spare time she enjoys
spending time with her
husband Danny and her two
children, Kyle and Kaci. Her
husband works as a major at
Baker Correctional Institution.
Kyle is a conductor with CSX
railroad. Kaci will soon be
completing a dental hygiene
program at Santa Fe

Tsunami
donations are
deductible
The Internal Revenue Service
alerted taxpayers who itemize
deductions that they may claim
on their 2004 tax returns
charitable donations made
during January 2005 for relief
of the victims of the Indian
Ocean Tsunami.
The new law enacted on Jan.
7 allows these donations to be
deducted as if they were made
on Dec. 31, 2004.
"There are no extra forms to
fill out or any additional
burdens for taxpayers," -said
IRS Commissioner Mark W.
Everson. "As long as you send
your check by the end of the
month, the donation will be
treated just like it was still
2004."
The new law only allows for
cash contributions. The
contributions must be made
specifically for the relief"bf
victims in areas affected by the
Dec. 26, 2004, tsunami in the
Indian Ocean. The': hew law


gives taxpayers the option of
deducting the contributions on
either their 2004 or 2005
returns, but not both.
The IRS advises taxpayers to
be sure their contributions go to
qualified charities. Taxpayers
. who have a specific charity in
mind can make sure that it is a
qualified charity by doing a
search on IRS.gov. Some
organizations, such as churches
or governments, may be
qualified even though they are
not listed on IRS.gov. Donors
can find out more about
organizations helping .the
victims of the tsunami from
agencies such as USAID and
USA Freedom Corp.
The IRS reminds donors that
contributions to foreign
organizations generally are not
deductible.
IRS Publication 526,
Charitable Contributions,
provides information on making
contributions to charities.
Publication 3833, Disaster

Two road projects



scheduled to begin



in 2005


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) has
slated two road projects to
begin in Union County in
2005.
On Feb. 23 a contract will be
awarded to resurface CR-245
from CR-238 to the Columbia
County line. The estimated
cost of the project is $670,000.
On March 30, FDOT will
award a contract to add a left
turn lane to SR-16 just north of
Raiford. A total of $610,000 is
the estimated cost of the
project.
According to FDOT
representative Gina Busscher,
it takes approximately three to
four months after bids are
awarded to begin on a project.
"That is, of course, with no
glitches in the process," said
Busscher. Contractor delays
*and environmental concerns
can sometimes delay a project
for months after it is awarded.
The FDOT has several


projects slated to begin over
the next five years in the
county. One of the larger
projects is the replacement of
the bridge over the New River
on CR-229. The project is
slated for the department's
2005-2006 fiscal year. The
project cost is estimated at $2
million.
One other project scheduled
for the 05-06 fiscal year is the
purchasing of right-of-way to
replace the bridge over Swift
Creek. Funding for the
construction of the bridge has
not been set aside at this time.
Three projects are slated for
the 2006-2007 fiscal year. The
first will resurface CR-240
west from the Columbia
County line to CR-241. The
estimated cost of the project is
$805,000.
The resurfacing of SR-16 is
also scheduled for the 06-07
fiscal year. The project will
resurface the road from SR-
121 to the Bradford County
line. The project will cost the
FDOT an estimated $1.3
million.
The third project on FDOT's

As part of a continuing effort looking for
to give Floridians additional tax students

Floridians now face, Nelson
worked with other members of
Congress to pass a measure that
gives Floridians and others
living in states with no income
tax the opportunity to deduct Wor t
sales taxes in lieu of a
deduction for state income
taxes. This move is aimed at
increasing fairness in the tax
code for taxpayers in Florida
and other states that don't have
an income tax.
The legislation, known as the
American Jobs Creation Act of This sp t
cal
2004, allows a sales tax T sp c
deduction as an option for those
who itemize their tax returns be yours!
during the next two years.
Under this provision, a typical lu
Florida taxpayer could save WO ly
$300 or more.
Taxpayers will indicate by a /
checkbox on line five of $16/w ko
Schedule A which type of tax for 26 weeks
they're claiming, and then will
use tables provided by the IRS
to determine how large the Call Darlene
deduction will be. Although the
law is set to expire after 2005, lOday
Nelson is hoping to make the 904-964-630
change permanent.
The IRS has several tables on
its Web site for determining the
amount you can
deduct. For more information,
visit www.irs.gov/pub/irs-
pdf/p600.pdf.


06-07 slate is the resurfacing
of CR-18 from SR-121 to the
'Bradford County line.
Estimated cost for the project
is $873,000.
The FDOT has three projects
planned for the, 2007-2008
fiscal year, the first of them
being an intersection
improvement project on SR-
100 at CR-238. The
improvements will be designed
to improve traffic flow at the
intersection. Project cost is
estimated at $219,000.
The next project on the 07-
08 list is intersection
improvements at SR-231 and
SR-121 in Worthington
Springs. The estimated cost of
the project is $270,000.
The third and final project
on the 07-08 slate is
resurfacing SR-231 from
Medical Drive to SR-100. The
cost for resurfacing the 2'8
mile stretch on road is
estimated at $1.3 million.

Three Rivers

implements

legal helpline
Three Rivers Legal Services,
Inc. which provides legal help
for low-income people, has
implemented a Legal Helpline
in its Jacksonville office.
Callers will have the
opportunity to receive advice
and brief services over the
telephone from trained legal
staff. Callers will initially be
screened for income and
program eligibility. If qualified,
an appointment will then be set
for an attorney or supervised
paralegal to call the client back.
By implementing the Legal
Helpline, Three Rivers will be
able to provide more services to
more individuals in a briefer
period of time. Three Rivers
will also be able to reach clients
in the rural community that
would normally not have the
means to come into one of its
offices.
The helpline is being funded
by the Legal Services
Corporation. In addition Equal
Justice Works has provided two
AmeriCorps Pro Bono Legal
Corps volunteer attorneys to
assist with the implementation
of the helpline. The two
attorneys, Melissa Long and
Julie Santioni, are responsible
for recruiting and training law
students from Florida Coastal
School of Law to help operate
the helpline.
Three Rivers Legal Services
is a nonprofit organization that
provides free civil legal
services in 17 counties in North
Central Florida. Three Rivers
has its main office in
Gainesville, with branch offices
in Lake City' and Jacksonville.
Attorney Allison Thompson is
the executive director of the
program.
Callers can reach the Legal
Helpline Monday through

Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
by dialing toll free 1-866-256-
8091.




The true past departs not;
no truth or goodness
realized by man ever dies,
or can die; but all is still
here, and, recognized or
not, lives and works,
through endless change.

Continued from p. 1A
results from the fact that Florida
has adopted the drinking water
standards as our ground water
standards."
It's not going to be easy to
treat arsenic present at such low
levels, Darabi said, and a more
difficult cleanup will probably
translate into a more costly one.
Darabi said he is working
with DEP to see what the
options are, including the
possibility of a health risk-
based evaluations in lieu of
cleanup.
Union and Baker counties
will be affected, but he hadn't
seen numbers on the arsenic
-levels at Bradford's retired
landfill. Most landfills show
some traces of the contaminant.
There's no way to avoid it, he
said.
If talks with DEP aren't
successful, Darabi said, then the
counties will have to prepare a
contamination assessment plan, A
a contamination assessment
report and a remedial action
-report during this year, and that
codild affect budgets.
-,'If this .goes through,
unfortunately, there may be
.some money spent for nothing.
T4 ating arsenic at those
concentrations is going to be
very expensive and probably
not feasible," Darabi said.
. Just going through the
process to prove the
impracticality of a cleanup,
however, is going to cost
$1-00,000-$150,000, he said.
-In other business:
.mBradford County
Commissioner Doyle Thomas
retained the chairmanship of the
board, and Union County
Commissioner Wayne Smith
was elected vice chairman.
New to the board, Baker
County Commissioner Julie
CoPrbs was elected the board's
secretary/treasurer.
The other new board member
from Baker County is
Co'imissioner Mark Hartley.
Bi'adford County Commissioner
Eddie Lewis has also rejoined
the board.

Gold Head to Alpha Nu


host festival

Jan. 29
A celebration of days gone.
by, called the Yesterdays
Festival, will be held Saturday,
Jan. 29, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at
Gold Head Branch State Park
located six miles north of
Keystone Heights on SR- 21.
A demonstration performed
by a Paso Fino horse group will
highlight the festival. The
horses are renowned for their
smooth gait. You may have
seen a Paso Fino horse on
television, bearing its rider
across an arena while the rider
balances a full wine glass on his
flat-topped hat without

'Food Check-
out Day' is
Feb. 7
By Feb. 7 the average
American will have earned
enough income to pay for the
entire year's food supply, and
state agriculture leaders are
encouraging Floridians to
remember the efforts of the
.farmers who make this feat
possible.
"Americans enjoy the safest,
most abundant and most
affordable food supply on
earth," Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said. "Based on U.S.
Department of Agriculture
statistics, it takes just 37 days
for the average American to
earn enough disposable income
to pay for his or her family's
food supply for the entire
year."
Thanks to modern farming
techniques, America's farmers
and ranchers are producing
more food on fewer acres,
leaving more open space for,
wildlife habitat. Precision
farming practices boost crop
yields and overall efficiency by
using satellite maps and
computers, to match .seed,
fertilizer and crop protection
applications to local soil
conditions.
"Food Check-Out Day is a
*celebration of the bounty from
America's farms and ranches
and how that bounty is shared
with American consumers
through affordable food prices,"
said Carl Loop, president of the
Florida Farm Bureau
Federation. "Conipared to
other expenses facing
America's families, food is a
bargain. While Americans-
must only work until early
February to pay for their .early
food supply. last Near they had
to work until April II to pay
for their ta\es."

Women's heart health issues differ from men's


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
While many of the
differences between men and
women are obvious, some -
like the differences in the
effect and treatment of heart
disease are not so obvious.
Dr. Michael C. Dillon, of
Cardiology Associates in,
Gainesville, spoke to those
gathered at the Starke Altrusa
Club's Heart Health Luncheon
Jan. 13 and outlined the
information women should
know when thinking about
their cardiological health.
Dillon said that heart health
Sis an important issue for
women in particular because
heart disease is the leading
cause of death among women
in the United States. "A lot of
people think it is cancer, but
the leading cause is heart
disease. Some 3.2 million
women have some form of
heart disease that's one in
five women," he said.
Leading causes of
death In women
Heart disease 29.3%
Cancer 21.6%
Injuries, kidney disease,
infection 8.7%
Stroke 8.1%
Lung disease 5.1%
Diabetes 3.1%
Alzheimer's 3.1%
Dillon said women tend to
develop arterial disease later in
life than men, which is good.
Estrogen may assist in
protecting' women from an
earlier onset of heart disease,
but research on its role is still
inconclusive.
Women tend to be older
when arterial disease is
discovered and because they
are older, they don't do as well
as men in the treatment phase.
Women tend to have other
health problems that impact
the treatment, said Dillon.
Looking at the older age
groups also indicates that heart
disease becomes more and
more-a problem for women. In
women 65 and older, 32.6
percent die of heart disease -
higher than the average 29.3
percent for all women ..
Women of any age are 10
percent more likely to die after
an unrecognized heart attack
than men.. After a. recognized
heart attack, the likelihood that
Wa' o vonmai "will experience
additional complications or
disability is two times greater
than a man in the sainme
situation.
A woman can also have
more difficulty in recognizing
a heart attack than men have.
Dillon said chest pain is the
most common symptom of.
heart attack for both men and

might be a warning sign." said
Dillon.
Family history. can also 6e a.a
warning sign. he said "If ,our,
grandfather had a heart attack
%when he was .0SO. that doesn't
constitute a lot of worr\ for
\ou." said Dillon. "If one or
both of 5our parents had heart
attacks when the\ were less
than 60 sears old that
would d be a concern."'
So if heart disease is a
particular problem for \%omen.
\hat can the\ do about it?
Dillon said the first thing is to
know more kno% what the
risk factors are and ho\ \xou
can keep those factors from
becoming too great.
The risk factors for heart
disease things present in
wour life that make 'heart
disease more likely are
tobacco u.e, high blood
pressure, a family, history of
heart disease, diabetes, lipid
disorders, obesity and/or low.
physical actkit) rate and a
high-fat diet..
Smoking
"I realize that quitting
smoking is difficult to, do,"
said Dillon. "If.. it weren't
difficult, everyone' would quit, '
but smoking can cause or,
contribute to a lot of'health


problems, including heart
-disease,"
He said that when younger
(in their 30s and ,40s) people


have heart attacks, doctors
almost always find the patient
is a smoker.
Smoking one to. four
cigarettes per day can result in
two to three times greater risk
of heart disease. However, just
one year after a person stops
, smoking, his or her risk of
heart disease drops by half.
After 10 years, the former
smoker's risk is the same as a
person who has never smoked.
Diabetes
Dillon said the prevalence of
diabetes has almost doubled
over the past 10 years and 50-
70 percent of all diabetes
patients die from heart disease.
Women are more susceptible
to certain side effects of
diabetes than men are, said
Dillon.
Cholesterol
Under age 50, women tend
to have better cholesterol
levels than men. After age 50,
however, women's cholesterol
levels /tend' to go up while
men's levels tend to remain the
same. Lowering cholesterol

Gold Head to host Yesterdays Festival on Jan.


A celebration of days gone by, called the
Yesterdays Festival, will be held S:imiday, Jan.
29, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gold Head Branch
State Park located six miles north of Keystone
Heights on SR- 21.
A demonstration performed by a Paso Fino
horse group will highlight the festival. The
horses are renowned for their smooth gait. You
may have seen a Paso Fino horse on television,
bearing its rider across an arena while the rider
balances a full wine glass on his flat-topped hat -
without spilling a single drop.
The horses are often used in elaborate
exhibitions and the riders at this event will be in


historic Hispanic dress.
Gold Head Associates, Inc., will sponsor the
second annual Yesterdays Festival, which will
also feature an antique engine display, antique
car show, World .War II display ,from Camp
Blanding, guided hikes, historical reenactors, a
variety of musical groups and much more. Food
and refreshments will be sold by the Keystone
Heights High School Booster Club. Included on
the menu will be
chicken, hamburgers
and hot dogs.
Last year, the ".-'" .
festival's first year,


more than 700 people attend.
The festival is intended to let the area know
about Goldhead's citizens support organization,
called Goldhead Associates. The festival offers
Goldhead Associates an opportunity to showcase
everything the park can offer including hikes,
tram rides and living history exhibits.
A spokesperson for Goldhead Associates said
the organization hopes to make this event bigger'


29


and better every year so that more people will
become aware of the park, what it has to offer -
and how the public can assist in preserving all
that it has to offer.
The-park entrance fee of $4 per vehicle will be
charged for the event. There will be no other
charge to participate in the festival. For more
information or questions, please contact Gold
Head Branch State Park at 352-473-4701.


This 1928 Ford was on display last year. Antique and collectible
cars will be on display at this year's festival as well.


The River City Connection was one of numerous live performing groups and individuals last year. A
variety of musical and other entertainment is also planned for this year.

levels can be very important,
said Dillon, since a one percent
drop in cholesterol can yield a
two to three percent drop in the
risk of Ileart attack.
Obesity
"We are in the middle of an
epidemic of obesity," said
Dillon. "That is true of women
as well as men and children.
,Obesity kills 300,000
Americans every year."
The incidence of obesity in
women from 1988-1994 was
25.4 .percent. The incidence of
obesity from 1999-2000 was
33.4 percent.
Some 30 percent of all
women report little or no
regular physical activity, a
'situation that: contributes to
obesity. Dillon said in spite of
-all the advertisements about
'different diets, diet alone %ilf'
, not combat obesity. "You need
exercise of some type," he
said.
He said that any increased
level of physical activity will
be an improvement.
In addition to contributing to
the incidence of heart disease,
obesity also makes some of the
tests used to diagnose heart
disease difficult, to use.
"When dealing with a heavy
person, all the diagnostic tests
become more complicated,"
said Dillon.
He also :said that once a
person comes to the doctor
suspecting a heart problem, a
simple physical exam will'
often not show any problem.
Electrocardiograms (ECG or
EKG), echocardiograms, stress
tests, CT scans and MRIs are
other diagnostic tests used to
determine if a patient has heart
problems. Cardiac
catheterizations are invasize
procedures used to diagnose


heart problems.

Artist paints, teaches all in one stroke


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Christie Allen loves teaching
almost as much as she loves
painting and the Bradford-
Union Vo-Tech has given her
an opportunity to teach a
weekly class, which began on
Tuesday.
"The class is full," Allen said.
"Hopefully we will do another
class after that because we've
got a runover."
Allen, who has already been
teaching classes once a week at
her studio on Edwards Road in
Starke, will be teaching Donna
Dewberry's one-stroke
technique in a six-week course
at the Vo-Tech. The technique,
as its name implies, uses one
stroke with a double-loaded
brush to take care of highlights,
shadows and color changes.
"It's a fast technique that is
easy for people to learn and to
build on," Allen said. "Once
they master that, most students
tell me they feel more
comfortable with a brush
because we use so much paint
on it. A lot of techniques I've'
done in the past use a miniscule
amount of paint on your brush.
This one, you just load it up and
paint and paint."
: Allen said students in her Vo-
Tech class will be learning
basic one-stroke techniques to
paint such things as
wildflowers, ivy, roses and
sunflowers. Students will also
complete a project each night
that they can take home with
them.
Prior to the start of her class,
Allen said the first class would
consist of her explaining what
the one-stroke technique is,
who Donna Dewberry is, how
to take care of brushes and what
one-stroke products are and
how to use them. She said she
would then show students how

Christie Allen shows off some of her handiwork when
it comes to using the Donna Dewberry one-stroke
painting method. Allen is currently teaching a class at
the Vo-Tech.


to load their brush and in no
time they would be painting.


"Within. 15 minutes of being
there, they're going to be
dipping in paint," Allen said.
Some students may be
apprehensive about picking up a
brush, believing they have no
artistic talent. Allen has heard
that from students she has
taught previously, but many of
them were "pleasantly
surprised," she said.
"I have several students in
my day classes-none of them
have painted at all," Allen said.
"They come in and they can do
all kinds of stuff. They just
thought they could never do
something like this."
Allen was doing craft
painting for 4-5 years before
she got into the one-stroke
technique in 2002. She was
teaching basic painting classes
for a women's group once a
month. One of the women in
the class tried to' learn the one-
stroke method from another
instructor, but she could not
master it. That woman
encouraged Allen to learn the
method, so' Allen; in turn 'could;
teach her.
Dewberry has many
instructional videos and books
on the market, so Allen took
* advantage of them.
"I just bought the stuff and


taught myself," she said. "I
used those ladies (in the class)
as guinea pigs the first year.
They learned along with me."
. Since then, Allen, who
became a certified Donna
Dewberry one-stroke instructor

in December 2002, has been
.painting on just about
everything, whether it's fabric,
wood or glass. Even mailboxes
give her a place to display her
work.
"They're a neat surface
because if you mess up, you
just wipe it off and start over,"
Allen said.
She has painted several
mailboxes for people, as well as
painting people's walls-no
matter what room they're in.
"I love painting bathrooms,"
Allen said, "because you can
take a plain, ugly bathroom and
just transform it. It just makes
such a big difference." (If you
have been in the restrooms in
Larry's Subs, then you have
seen Allen's work.)
Allen cites painting walls as
her favorite thing to do, but
there is something else she
enjoys doing along with that.
"I love teaching just as
much," she said. "I thirtk I
really have the best of all
worlds-I can teach and I can
still go out and do people's
walls."
Now the Vo-Tech gives
Allen another opportunity to
teach and, in her words, another
opportunity to keep learning.
"I learn as much from
(students) as they learn from
me," Alien said. "Everybody
has a different style and
different vision."

Bronson:
'Huge tomato
crop remains
unpicked'
Acres of Florida tomatoes
remain unpicked while the
general public still perceives a
shortage, Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson was, 9Old b3 gr.oAers
during a recent'tour of south
Florida tomato farms.
"I was shocked to see acre
upon acre of unharvested
tomatoes," Bronson said after
visiting tomato farms in
Homestead. "The perception of
a tomato shortage still remains
in the mind of the public. As a
result, consumers aren't buying
tomatoes, retail grocers and
restaurants aren't placing
orders, and our growers are
facing disaster because they
can't sell their crop."
Bronson said that, while
there was a short-term shortage
of tomatoes immediately after
the state's destructive hurricane
season, Florida's farmers
replanted and there now is an
abundance of fresh tomatoes.
"Florida's tomato farmers
worked hard to get back in
business following the
hurricanes, but are now
frustrated as their crop remains
in the field, because they can't
find buyers," Bronson said.
"Even with this abundant
tomato supply, we're still
hearing stories that some
restaurants and fast-food
establishments are still
limiting tomatoes or not
serving them at all."
Retail grocery prices for
tomatoes, which had peaked at
nearly $4 per pound in October
.and November, have begun
returning to more normal
levels. Bronson was told by
growers that they are receiving
15 to 20 cents per pound for
their tomatoes..
Bronson told growers he has
directed his Division of
Marketing and Development to
assist them in moving the,
current tomato crop into the

"We want American
consumers to know that
Florida is back in the fresh

said. "We encourage corporate
buyers for grocery chains and
restaurants to move swiftly to
help satisfy consumers' pent-up
demand for this delicious and
healthy product."
Florida's devastating
hurricane, season -.:,.whichi
destroyed tomatoes in the field
and delayed planting of new
crops had contributed to a
short-term shortage of fresh
tomatoes in much of the
country. The situation was
exacerbated by problems in
other tomato-producing areas
(heavy rains during the harvest
season in California and a
continuing pest problem in
Mexico). As a result, many
consumers saw empty tomato

Keystone flight school receives accreditation


By ARNIE HARRIS
Monitor Staff Writer
Anyone who has ever
dreamt of learning to fly can
earn his or her wings at the
Aquila Aviation School,
located at Keystone Heights
Airport.
Under the tutelage of owner
Neil Brooks and his fellow
flight instructors, Patrick Gray
and Richard Tillery, the school
offers lessons in how to pilot
private planes, as well as
helicopters.
"Everybody can learn," said
instructor Gray. "No matter if
they've never been in an
aiplane or helicopter before.
I've had students from all age
groups. The oldest I know of is
an 82-year-old man."
When asked if there's a
problem if someone suffers
from a fear of heights, Gray
said, "I'm afraid of heights
myself, yet here I am, a flight
instructor. It's all a matter of
conquering fear through
knowing you're in control of
the craft."
Brooks took over ownership
of the aviation school a year

Class 3A-5A volleyball teams.
Ford, a setter, recorded 328
assists, 213 kills, 111 digs, 53
aces and 49 blocks. She was
one of five players placed on
either the first, second or third
teams.
Bradford junior outside hitter
was a second-team selection
with 263 kills, 219 digs, 153
service points, 89 aces and 24
blocks.
The two schools produced
three third-team selections.
Keystone senior setter Angii

sophomore outside hitter
Matlory Wasik .and. Bradford.'
sophomore setter Tosha Griffin.
Fraficis-Verbeelen had 311

this past season, while
teammate Wasik had 244 kills,
78 digs, 34 aces and 20 blocks.
Griffin, who was playing the
sport for the first time ever,
recorded 438 assists, 120
service points and 23 aces.
Receiving honorable mention
were Bradford junior middle
hitter Jachael Nichols, Keystone
senior middle blocker Kaylene
Rountree and Keystone junior

In order to get their licenses,
said Gray, students must
initially take 20 hours of
instruction accompanied by
their instructor. During this
period, the person actually
doing the flying gradually
shifts from the instructor to the
student.
To ensure safety during this
fledgling period, the planes are'
under dual control with the
instructor ever at the ready to
deal with any problems that
might arise, Gray said.
After this 20-hour
preliminary period, the student
is required to put in a
minimum of 10 hours solo
time, he said.
But realistically, according
to Gray, the students typically

BHS turns close affair into blowout


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Host Keystone Heights put
together a furious rally in the
game's final two-and-a-half
minutes, but the Indians still
came up short against Santa Fe,
falling 53-51 in a girls' District
4-3A basketball matchup on
Jan. 14.
Keystone, which lost to Santa
Fe by a point earlier this season,
missed out on an opportunity to
force a tie atop the district
standings. The Indians are now
4-2 in the district and were 11-6
overall prior to. a game on
Tuesday. The Raiders improved
to 5-0 in the district and to 10-5
oMerall;,. ;.
Santa Fe led.by seven at the
half, but the Indians were able
to whittle that lead down to four
entering the fourth quarter.
Keystone then pulled within
two .after consecutive layups by
Mary Anne McCall and Sara
Crane..
Keystone, however, missed
six of its next seven field goal
attempts as the Raiders went on
a 9-2 run to build a 48-39 lead
with 2:35 remaining. Santa Fe's
Janay McCray grabbed four
defensive rebounds during that
stretch, but she made just 3-of-6
free throws, preventing the
Raiders from going up by more
than nine points.
Jessica Whitfield scored

' Keystone before Mindy
Poupard drained a 3-pointer
with one minute remaining to
pull the Indians within 50-46.

Bradford put together runs of
16-3 and 15-0 to turn a close
game into an 84-46 win over
visiting Fort White in a District
4-3A boys' basketball matchup
on Jan. 13.
The Tornadoes trailed 30-28
in the second quarter, but were
able to take a 44-33 lead at the
half. Japan Ruise, who led all
scorers with 33 points, got the
Tornadoes rolling. He scored
two baskets and recorded an
assist on a score by D'Andre
Seay.
Seay, who finished with 22
points, added a 3-pointer that
put the Tornadoes up 37-33.
Darryl Hankerson then scored
following his own steal and was
fouled in the process,
Hankerson's free throw was no
good, but Ruise rebounded the
miss and kicked it out to Seay,
who drained another 3-pointer.
Seay had 10 points during the
16-3 run,, including a layup
before the buzzer after dribbling
the length of the court.
Seay and Hankerson were
instrumental in a fast start to the
third quarter. Hankerson had
consecutive 3-pointers and Seay
added another as the Tornadoes

Grandma Gertie...


By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors Editor
Grandma Gertie that's what
many folks called her. Her name
was Eula Gertrude Whitfield
(1904-1977). She was just
"grandma" to me and my
brother, Mike. She was also my
fishing mentor.'
She taught me both how to
fish and how to correctly bait a
hook. She tried to teach me how
to throw out an open faced reel -
one of those old, big,
cumbersome saltwater reels of
the 1950s. She was a 100 percent
saltwater fisherman NO
freshwater fishing. She had this
serious thing about snakes.
Casting out
She did her best to show me
how to-casf6out over an incoming
wave at the beach while surf
fishing, but I never could toss the
rig out very far without a major
league backlash. Bless her heart,
whenever she took Mike and me
fishing, she probably spent more
time untangling backlashes than
actually fishing. On one trip, my
brother and I actually managed
to severely tangle up all three
.reels so badly that we had to give
up and go home.
Those old big reels were
heavy, too, with no line guides.
They were always mounted with
huge bolts onto a too short, too
stout pole. Anything within 20
feet of me was in mortal danger
whenever I tried to throw that
thing bout in the surf. Sometimes,
I'd misfire and slap the beach
right in front of us, burying the
sinker in the sand. Other times,
I'd finally get a little distance,
only to push my thumb down too
hard, mess up the'cast and put a


BHS'


serious line burn on my thumb.
Oh, how that hurt. Even a Band-
Aid and a grandma's kiss
couldn't take that pain away.
Ever done that?
But, boy howdy,, could
Grandma Gertie ever throw out
her own rig. She was right
handed but always threw out left
handed, a crossover-type cast.
Even years after she passed on,
my dad and uncles would tell me
that they never saw even one
man throw out farther.
Fishing with grandma
Somehow, through those early
years, Grandma taught me how
to fish saltwater. We fished the
surf (her favorite), the sound, the
intracoastal waterway, the rocks,
the marsh, the bridges, the
docks, and, of course, my
favorite place, the fishing pier.
My hometown,' Wilmington,
N.C., had two commercial
fishing piers available to the
public'- the Crystal and Johnny
Mercer's, both down at
Wrightsville Beach.
When Hurricane Hazel
knocked the end off Grandma's
favorite pier, they tied ropes
across the ends and Grandma
was out there, throwing out
across the ropes, spray hitting
her in the face, because "the
blues were running".
I loved the piers for many
reasons. The first was the most
obvious... bathrooms. You know
little boys.
Secondly, there was a snack
shop where they sold soft drinks,
peanuts and "Nabs." (Nabs were
packs of cheese crackers with
peanut butter'fillings.) The snack
shop had to be visited several
times a day, especially when the
fish weren't biting.
,Most importantly, you didn't


Forsyth is


'outstanding'


in


Lee tournament


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Bradford High School
wrestler Justin Forsyth was
named the Most Outstanding
Wrestler of a tournament at Lee
High School Jan. 14-15 after
winning the 140-pound weight
class with a perfect record.
Forsyth, who improved to 21-
0 on the season, took a 6-3 win
in the tournament semifinals
and then an 8-3 win in the
championship match.
Three Bradford wrestlers
earned sixth-place finishes:
Tommy Hilliard C125-pound
class),-Douii Baldwin (152) and
William Splitt (171). Hilliard
and Baldwin each advanced to
the consolation semifinals by
pinning their opponents in 2:55.
and 2:24, respectively. Splitt
earned his way into the
consolation semifinals with a
14-3 win.
It was the second straight
tournament Bradford 'competed
in. The Tornadoes competed in
one at Clay High School Jan. 7-
8, with Forsyth winning his


class and Splitt and Charlie
Twiford earning third- and
fourth-place finishes,
respectively.
Forsyth began the tournament
by pinning his opponent in,
1:23. He then took wins of 13-3
and 13-9 before claiming the
140-pound class championship
with a 4-3 win.
Splitt pinned his first
opponent in 3:45 before
suffering a 21-7 loss. He then
had wins of 1-0 and 4-3 to take
third place.
It was a strong start for
Twiford with consecutive pins
of 3:25 and 1:23. After a 21-6
loss, Twiford rebounded with
an 18-11 win. He then barely
lost his last match, 12-11, to
finish in fourth place.
Max 'Ennis (112) had two
wins in the tournament-a pin
of 2:31 and an 8-2 score. The
following wrestlers each earned
one win: Hilliard, Jeremy Agan
(119), Bobby Andrew's (145),
Eric Palmer (275).
Bradford will be back in
action this Thursday, Jan. 20, in
a home meet against Jackson at
6:30 p.m.


have to actually cast your line
out. You could just flip the bail
and let 'er drop straight down.
Doing this, I caught lots of angel
fish, whiting (which Grandma
called Virginia mullet), pigfish,
croakers and, of course, the all-
time champion bait stealers of
the sea, the pinfish.
Pinfish could steal your bait
the quickest of any fish.
Sometimes, you would not even
feel a touch on the line, not a
bump, tap or pull. You'd just reel
up empty hooks. We finally
started winning this fight by
going to smaller hooks and
smaller pieces of bait. How
many times did I hear Grandma
say, "Boys, don't feed all the
shrimp to those pinfish."
If you have ever tried eating
pinfish, they are excellent, some
even compare it to flounder or
trout. It just takes a lot of them,
like 20, for a meal. But be
careful cleaning these little
monsters. The pins on a pinfish
are. world famous for sneak
attacks on unsuspecting fingers!
The photograph board
There was one more must-see
place on the old piers, the crude
bulletin board with all the old
fish photos on it. Crude. Rough.
Faded.
As a young boy, I used to
stand there and stare. All those
fish, all kinds, sizes and
varieties, and all in two beautiful
colors black and white.
I would dream of catching any
fish I saw. Oh, how I could
dream. I'd dream that I would
catch a huge fish and have my
picture and name put up on that
board. I dreamed of catching
any fish big enough to take a
picture of and place on the
board. If perchance a ,real
miracle ever actually happened,
I'd catch a world record and get
MY picture in the paper. Hey,
maybe a three-pound pinfish or
10-pound croaker! A boy's gotta
dream, right?
Remembering
I remember many a day at the
beach with Grandma. She
carried all her tackles, hooks and
gear in an -old, painted yellow
wicker-type basket. We took an
old galvanized bucket to put the
fish in. As trunks in cars in the
50s were so small, we. either
stuck the rods out the back rear
passenger side window, or we
just put them across the seats
inside the car with the rod butt
up on the rear glass and the rod
tips on the dash board. Her old
car, a '55 Chevy, was a three on


the column gear shift and I'm
sure it was less than safe driving
and shifting the gears with hooks
and tackle inches away, often
dangling down in front of the
radio knobs.
Somehow, we made it back
and forth to the water. All but the
day my little brother poured
water into Grandma's gas tank.
We didn't make it home that day
' and Grandaddy had to come get
us. He was really upset as we got
towed home. I don't think that
Grandma ever told him what
really happened to his car.
The day she passed away, in
1977. Grandma Gertie was
driving two older ladies to the
beach to buy some fish at the
fish market. Her last deed on this
earth was connected to two
things she really loved people
and fishing. Perhaps now she is
fishing in that Crystal River and
having the time of her life.
"Attaboy"
Grandma's favorite expression
of exhortation was simply,
"Attaboy." And she always said
it with a huge endearing smile.
You'd catch a fish, any fish...
"Attaboy!" You'd get a good
report card... "Attaboy!" You
killed a squirrel out of her
garden... "Attaboy!"
If I had the chance to live my
life over, I'd take a tape recorder
with me and tape Grandma
Gertie saying "Attaboy!" I'd
keep that tape in a very special
place so that whenever I did
something that I thought was
pretty good, I'd hit that play
button and hear that sweet, sweet
voice go... "Attaboy!"
Grandma Gertie, a fisherman's
best friend. Thank you for three
things:
Thank you for teaching me
how to tie the fisherman's knot.
Thank you for teaching me to
love people.
Thank you for teaching me to
love the great outdoors.
Maybe some day I will catch a
record fish or do something
really good. If I do, I'll close my
eyes, push that button in my
mind, and hear it one more
time... "Attaboy!" Let's go
fishing !

The second-ranked team in
Class 4A rolled into the
Bradford High School gym with
an undefeated record and rolled
right back out still undefeated
as the Bradford girls' basketball
team suffered a 70-40 loss to
the Eastside Rams on Jan. 17.
Eastside, which improved to
18-0, outscored the Tornadoes
15-7 in the second quarter,
turning a nine-point lead into
one of 17 points. Bradford (4-6
prior to Jan. 18) shot 1-of-10
from the field in the quarter and
committed nine turnovers.
The Rams would put together
a 12-2 run in the third quarter to
build their lead to 52-21.
Eastside's Latoya Williams
blocked four shots early in the
period and she and the rest of
the Rams' starters went to the
bench, midway through the
quarter and did not return.
One of the bright spots for
the Tornadoes in the quarter
came from Tosha Gordon and
Ashley Thompkins. Thompkins,
who scored a basket and was
fouled, stepped to the free-
throw line and missed an
attempt. Gordon saved the ball
from going out of bounds,
flipping it back to Thompkins
for a score.
Thompkins scored six points
in the third quarter and finished
with a team-high 16 points.
Tosha Griffin and Courtney
Cummings scored' 11 and eight
points, respectively.
The Tornadoes played district
opponent Union County on
Tuesday and will travel to play
district opponents Fort White
on Thursday, Jan. 20, and
Keystone Heights on Tuesday,
Jan. 25. Both games are
scheduled for 7 p.m. following

quarter, saying her players
played their hearts out.
However, the team did not play
well in a first half that saw the
Indians commit 18 turnovers
and shoot just 5-of-17 from the
foul line. The Indians also
missed several layup
opportunities.
It all prevented Keystone
from taking advantage of Santa
Fe's own mistakes. The Raiders
committed 15 turnovers in the
first half.
"We could've been way
ahead them," Feagle said.
The Indians were not helped
by the fact that, guard Karlyn
Reddish picked up three'fouls'
in the first quarter. Reddish sat
most of the second quarter and'
finished, the game with no
points after averaging 10 points
in the Indians' last five games.
Keystone began playing
better in the third quarter,
.cutting down on turnovers
(four) and shooting better from
the foul line (7-of-9). Crane and
McCall, who made 4-of-4 free
throws, combined to score 11
points as the Indians outscored
the Raiders 13-10.
