By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
A miscalculation by city of
Lake Butler City Manager
Richard Tillis has gotten the
city more than it bargained
for-literally.
Tillis requested bids to fix
sewer lines along eastern part
of the Main Street sewer line.


He estimated that 4,500 feet of
the line would require a
process known as "slip lining"
the old sewer pipe to make it
new again. It turns out the
section is only 2,156 feet in
length.
The city received a $175,000
grant from the Suwannee River
Water Management District
(SRWMD) for the process.
With SRWMD's blessing,


Tillis will use the extra funds
to slip line three additional
sections of the more than 75-
year-old line.
Other sections to be included
are 448 feet of SW first Street,
1,512 feet of NW third Avenue
and 1,002 feet of SE fifth
Avenue.
The city received another
bonus in the deal as well. The
contractor for the project,


Miller Pipeline Corporation of
Mt. Dora, is adding the
materials needed for the
project to an order for the city
of North Miami Beach. The
large volume of material is
affording the city an extra
large discount.
"The over estimation of the
job, along with a reduction the
price of materials is allowing
us to repair more of the sewer


line," said Tillis. "This is a real
blessing in disguise for the
city."
It will take the company
approximately two weeks to
complete the more than 5,000
feet of repairs to the city's
aging sewer lines.
The process of slip lining a

There's a new place in Lake Butler to 'park it'


The city
of Lake
Butler
has
opened
its
newest
park.
"Eastside
Park was
created
so that
the
citizens
on the
east side
of the
city
would
have a
place to
enjoy,"
said City
Manager
Richard
Tillis. It
took
more
than
three
years for
the park
to
become a
reality.
The park
was
funded
by a
grant
from the
state. For
more, see
related
story.


Top right: A basketball goal will allow park users to shoot some hoops while at
the park. The large court gives players alot of room to take it to the hoop.


Middle right: Smaller pavillions will accommodate up to six people. That park has
four of the smaller areas complete with grills. "We hope citizens will get alot of
use out of the areas," said Tillis.


Bottom right: A set of swings will give children hours of fun. The playground area
is designed to allow kids to'move from one area to another with great ease.


Gibson earns the rank of Eagle Scout


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
Steven Gibson has obtained
what only four percent of all
Boy Scouts do-he earned the
rank of Eagle Scout.
Gibson, son of Edward and
Angela Gibson of Lake Butler,
has -worked many years to
achieve the honor. The Union
County High School senior
had a variety of tasks to
complete in order to
accomplish the feat.
The most intense part of
earning the rank is the Scout's
Eagle Service Project. Every
Eagle Scout is required to
complete such a project before
earning the rank. The project
must demonstrate leadership of
others and provide service to a
worthy institution other than
the Boy Scouts.
Gibson looked many places
before deciding to paint the
Oak Grove Cemetery building.
"The building was in great
need of work," said Gibson.
Before beginning the project,
Gibson was required to create
an extensive plan.
The plan had to include a


description of the project, who
would benefit from it, the
details in planning the project
and the present condition of
the project. "We are required
to take pictures both before
and after the project," said
Gibson.
The plan must be very
detail-oriented as well. It had
to' include a list of materials
needed, a list of tools that
would be required, a schedule
of exactly how the projects
would be completed and an
extensive financial plan.
"Every aspect of the project
had to be in the plan," said
Gibson.
Gibson was able to secure
more than 15 people to help
him work on the project.
Friends, family and even other
Scouts pitched in to help on
the two day event. Between
* planning and executing,
Gibson estimates he worked
more than 100 hours on the
project.
Gibson is a member of
Troop 552 of Lake Butler. He
has been a part of Scouting
since the age of six.
This is not the first time


Gibson has received such high
recognition in Scouting. As a
Cub Scout Gibson received
that group's highest rank as
well. "I earned the Order of the
Arrow award 'while in Cub
Scouts, said Gibson.
Eagle Scout is the highest
and most prestigious rank in
the organization. Scouts must
earn a minimum of 21 merit
badges in order to receive the
award. Of these 12 are.
required. First aid, citizenship
in community, citizenship in
the nation, citizenship in the
world, communications,
environmental science,
personal fitness, personal
management, camping and
family life are all merit badges
a scout must earn in order to
earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
As the Scout progresses, he
is also required to attend a
conference with the troop's
Scoutmaster. At the
conferences, both set goals for
the Scout that are in line with
his own talents and abilities.
The Scoutmaster also helps the
Scout evaluate how well he

sewer line involves the
company first video taping the
sewer line section by section.
This allows them to see where
service inlets are in the pipe.
The pipe is then cleaned and
made ready for the next step.
A PC like material is then
used to "slip line" the pipe.
The material comes flat and is
on large rolls. The material is
heated to approximately 180
degrees as it is stretched the
length of the pipe. Air is then
injected into the material and it
expands.
As it expands, the material
forms along the old pipe. It
fills in any cracks or holes in
the pipe. The material then is
allowed to cool. After a brief
cool down period, a machine
goes back and cuts out the
service inlets the camera has
previously marked.
"The process will save the
city hundreds of thousands of
dollars it would normally cost
to do these types of repairs,"
said Tillis.
This is not the first time the
city has used the process.
'Including this project, the city
will have more than 50 percent
of its'entire sewer line slip
lined. "We have done previous
sections; as far back as 1989,"
said Tillis. "There have been
no problems with those
sections since: that time."

accomplished his present
goals.
The history of the eagle
badge dates back to 1908. In
his book "Scouting for Boys",
Robert Baden-Powell
introduced badges for
achievement. I,t is believed he
got the idea from American
naturalist Ernest Thompson
Seton. Seton's "Red Indian
Boy Scouts of America" book
was where Powell got the idea
from.
Originally, the highest rank
available in Scouting in the
United 'States was going to be'
the Wolf Badge. It was based
on the Silver Wolf Badge in
.Great Britain.
A review of the book by
several Scouting leaders, it was
decided the Boy Scouts'
highest honor should recognize
the American eagle. The idea
received resounding approval
and in 1911 when the first Boy
Scout handbook was
published, Eagle Scout was its
highest rank.

Don Lyons dropped in to
discuss flying operations with
the Rimes family on Super
Bowl Sunday.
Adams and Lyons were
pleased with the layout of the

recognized Flying Tiger Field
as a suitable area for things
like static displays, airshow
operations and certain

Adams and Lyons plan to,
return in December for the

to bring some the Drug

with them as well.
Upon completion of their

Christmas 2004 Home of his daughter, Tenna Liston. Memories last forever.
You are a kind, loving and honorable father, husband, father-in-law and grandfa-
ther. We love you very much.


The family of Herman E. Hodges would like
to say a very special Thanks to each person
that helped in our time of sorrow. Thanks to
the Lake Butler Fire Rescue for their
speedy and diligent response. Your efforts
meant so much. We especially thank Allen
Parrish who came to the call on his own
time to help in any way he could. Allen,
your kind words and comfort will never be
forgotten. We thank the Sheriff's
Department and the 911 operator for the
professional way they worked with the
rescue personnel and for going the extra
mile to ensure all family members were
contacted.
To the Shands at Starke hospital, we thank
you for the kind and thoughtful
consideration rendered to our family.
To Dr. Arnold, Sue Cunningham and the
other Purses in the E.R., we know how hard
telling the family of their loved ones
passing is and we thank you for your
compassion.
To Doyle Archer and the entire staff of
Archer Funeral Home, we thank you for the
tender way you assisted in making the
arrangements.
Thanks to Glenda Smith of Expressions in
Bloom for the beautiful family spray
created. Glenda, words can never express
our gratitude for using your talents to
honor Our father in a way we do not know
how.
(Our heartfelt thanks goes to friends, family,
co-workers, members of the Church of God
and Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints for giving of your time and love.
Our most precious possession, Our
Children, were in the loving care of Dale

Richardson, Carolyn Parrish, Gloria
Deverux and Pam Roberts. Thank you from
the bottom of our hearts.
David Romrell, Thank you from the bottom


of our hearts for the beautiful program.
To the members of the Masonic Lodge of

your God given talents to honor our loved
one.

Please know he loved and respected each of
you.
We thank the Deputies of Union County for
a wonderful job during the procession.
We thank all the people who stopped on the
side of the roads as we passed to show
honor and respect. Please know even that
small act does hot go unnoticed. .
At the cemetery, we were honored by the
talent of Wes Spradley and his powerful
ability to play the trumpet. He stood in the
cold and pouring rain to honor our loved
one with Amazing Grace and Taps. Wes, we
will always be indebted for the beautiful
way you shared your time and talent to
make it so special.
Once again, Thanks to everyone for the
flowers, food, prayers, cards, comforting
words, and most of all, working so well with
one another.

spiritual people. Herman Hodges loved this
community and loved being a part of it.
We each share in his admiration of this
special community.
Sincerely,
The Family of Herman E. Hodges

Keeping on Track:Math Night at LBMS
by Tyler Hamilton, eighth grade, LBMS
Math Night at Lake Butler Middle School (LBMS)
was a huge success on Feb. 7. It was the first event
of its kind at LBMS. It was hosted by Barbara
Riherd, Anita Taft, Stacey Spitze, Will Bowen and
Kyle White. Fun and educational math stations set
up around the library kept students busy for more
than an hour. Stations included playing a math
game of cards. This game is known to Riherd's
students as "Integer Wars." Another station had
boxes of polygonal shaped blocks that allowed
students to build their own tessellations (shapes
arranged in patterns). A unique experience was
had by those participating in a station with one of
the school's T1-83 graphing calculators connected
to a motion detector. The students could use their
own bodies to graph a line on a coordinate plane.
As much fun as the students were having, they
weren't the only ones taking part in the activities.
Adults were joining in the festivities as well. Moms,
dads, grandparents and others were playing card
games, visiting math Web sites and working on
math skills right along with the students. Students
and faculty at LBMS look forward to enjoying other
such events in the future.

4-H science and tech


shines at state fair


By AMANDA PARRISH
U C 4-H Club Member
This year's theme for the
2005 Florida State Fair, held in
Tampa, was "Eat Up the Fun."
Rising to the challenge was
the Lake Butler 4-H science
and technology club. A team
of 11, 12 and 13-year-old girls
and boys brought home a third
place ribbon and.grins on their
faces.
"Competing in a large group
of big counties, we really were
excited when we saw the
gigantic white ribbon hanging
on our booth," said Jenna-
Driggers. Driggers is a
member of the. Lake Butler
Middle School (LBMS)
technology and science club.
The county exhibit displayed a
farmers' market stand built by

aneurysm and other stroke
screenings will be available
Tuesday, March 1, at the'
Keystone Heights United
Methodist Church. The event is
sponsored by the woman's
club. Screening will be done by

There is a $45 fee for each
stroke screening. The
osteoporosis exam is $35.
Using Doppler ultrasound
technology, the tests check for
carotid artery blockage,
abdominal aortic aneurysms
and other health
problems such as plaque
buildup, all of which' are linked

and J.R. Rooney.
The stand was filled with
fruits and vegetables that could
be found at Union County's
very own farmers' market. A
local inventor and
entrepreneur, Jack Montpetit,
displayed his invention to
prevent pipes from freezing
with a drip control device.
The Union County Historical
Society loaned the team a wall
of historical pictures fqr the
stand as well. A caption on the
display read "1940-lunches
were served for five cents."
. Adjacent to the wall, the
team constructed an "I love 4-
H" wall. The wall was covered
with pictures of Union County
4-H'ers having fun eating
marshmallows and
watermelons. "Showing off

Safeguards in

place to

protect Fla.

from avian flu
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today outlined actions
his department is taking to
prevent avian influenza from
striking Florida.
The disease is- a major
concern for poultry producers
as some strains can devastate
poultry flocks, and some avian
influenza strains have the
potential to infect humans as
well as birds.
"We have a number of
safeguards in place to prevent
this disease from impacting
Florida, and we are maintaining
our vigilance and surveillance
efforts to keep this out of our
state," Bronson said.
Among efforts being taken
are:
Poultry from areas of the
world with serious strains of
the disease are prohibited from
entering the U.S., and all
commercial poultry entering
Florida from other states are
required to have a permit for
entry and must originate froth
influenza free flocks.
The department's
Division of Animal Industry
has 35 authorized agents trained
to collect samples, and testing
to determine the presence of the
disease is being conducted at


both the department's animal
health diagnostic laboratories.
Samples a r regularly collected
from backyard flocks and
commercial poultry breeding
flocks and 35 botanicas in the
state participate in a voluntary
surveillance and testing
program.
Veterinarians, veterinary
laboratories and those working
with birds in Florida are
required to report suspected,
cases of avian influenza to,
Bronson's department.'
Quarantine and other
emergency plans are in place to
eradicate such a disease as
quickly as possible if avian
influenza is detected.
The last reportable case of
avian influenza in Florida
occurred in a single bird in a
botanical in 2001. Birds at the
location were depopulated, and
the premises were cleaned and
disinfected to insure that the
virus was eliminated.

On Feb. 23, the Union
County Public Library
(UCPL) presented a
program "Teddy Bear
Picnic." During the
program UCPL
children's director Carol
Baer read "Little Bear's
Trousers" by Jane
Hissey. In the story,
Little Bear wakes up and
realizes he can't find his
pants. As he begins to
look for them he finds
his other stuffed animal
friends have used them
for different things. He
finds pants and puts
them under his pillow
for safe keeping. During
the program
preschoolers made
bears out of
construction paper.
They also sang songs
like "The Bear Went
Over the Mountain." The
library's March 9-10
program is entitled
"Story Soup."
Right: Karah Oden
shows off the bear she
created during the


Florida
smoked fish
recalled
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today announced that
Florida Smoked Fish of Miami
is recalling its packages of The
Boy's Farmer Market brand of
"Smoked Nova Salmon"
because it has the potential to
be contaminated with Listeria
monocytogenes, an organism
which can cause serious and
sometimes fatal infections in
young children, frail or elderly
people and others with
weakened immune systems.
Although healthy persons
may suffer only short term
symptoms such as high fever,
severe headache, stiffness,
nausea, abdominal pain and
diarrhea, Listeria infection can
cause miscarriages and
stillbirths among pregnant
woiien, or the baby may be
born with listeriosis.
The recalled "Smoked Nova
Salmon" was distributed
nationwide. The "Smoked
Nova Salmon" comes in a
clear, plastic wrapped, 1 pound
package with a use-by date of
4/24/05, batch 31997. No
illnesses have been reported to
date in connection with this
problem.
The contamination was noted
after testing by the Florida'
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services revealed the
'presence of Listeria
monocytogenes .in the
"Smoked Nova Salmon."
Produiiction of the product has
been suspended while the
company continues its
investigation as to the source
of the problem.
Consumers who have
purchased "Smoked Nova
Salmon" are urged to return
them to the place of purchase
for a full refund. Consumer
with questions may contact
Mr. Irvin Norfleet at 305-621-
7600, extension 143.

Floridians may
deduct sales
tax this year
As part of a continuing effort
to give Floridians additional tax
relief, Senator Bill Nelson
helped pass legislation last fall
allowing Floridians to deduct
sales taxes from their federal
income taxes.
While taxpayers across the
country are allowed- to deduct
their state income taxes from
their federal income taxes,
people who live in states
without an income tax miss out
on this deduction.
Following the costly
hurricane season and the
financial hardships many
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
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
2004, allows a sales tax
deduction as an option for those
who itemize their tax returns


during the next two years.
Under this provision, a typical
Florida taxpayer could save
$300 or more.
Taxpayers will indicate by a
checkbox on line five of
Schedule A which type of tax
they're claiming, and then will
use tables provided by the IRS
to determine how large the
deduction will be. Although the
law is set to expire after 2005,
Nelson is hoping to make the
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.

Grant
awarded to
restore oyster
reefs "
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson recently announced
that his department has been
awarded a $1.7 million federal
grant to restore oyster reefs
damaged by Hurricane Ivan last
September.
I' The grant was provided by
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
and is part of an overall effort
by a number of Gulf states to
restore damage caused by the
hurricane.
"It*is critical that we restore
our oyster reefs to benefit the
men and women who make
their living in this industry,
and to the millions of
Floridians and citizens
throughout the country who
enjoy Florida's quality
seafood," Bronson said.
The restoration project
involves the construction of
oyster reef habitat in a number
of Florida's Gulf Coast
estuaries, including in
Escambia Bay, East Bay,
Choctawhatphee Bay, West
Bay, North Bay, Apalachicola
Bay, Oyster Bay, Suwannee
Sound and Waccacassa Bay.
The project is designed to
rejuvenate fishery habitat,
enhance oyster production and


facilitate recovery of damaged
fisheries habitat.
Florida officials have been
actively engaged in oyster
resource development for more
than 50 years. During that
time, they have created and
restored thousands of acres of
productive public oyster reefs.

Eastside Park


completed


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The City of Lake Butler has
put the final touches on its
newest city park.
Eastside Park is now open to
the public. The park is located
at the comer of SE third Street
and Sixth Avenue. One large
and four small pavilions will
give residents a .place to enjoy
meals. Each is equipped with a
grill for visitors' use.
The park also has a large
playground area for children to
enjoy. A large jungle jim is its
centerpiece. The playground
also has several swings, a
climbing dome and a see-saw.


More than 95 percent of the
funding for the park came from
the Florida Rural Development
Assistance Program (FRDAP).
City Manager Richard Tillis
said the park has been years in
the making. "The city received
this grant approximately three
years ago," said Tillis.
"Obtaining a site, planning and
last year's hurricanes are just a
few reasons the park took three
years to construct," Tillis said.
There are plans to formally
dedicate the park the first week
of April.

The principal mark of genius is not perfection but oriqinality, the
opening of new frontiers.

The Family of the late Terrell
Green would like to express to our
many friends and family our
deepest gratitude and appreciation
for the many acts of kindness
during the loss of our loved one.
Your prayers, phone calls, food,
monetary gifts, floral expressions,
and many visits gave us both
comfort and strength.
A special thank you to the Lawtey
Correctional "Family"; Words can
not adequately express how much
the many gestures of care and
concern from all of you have meant
*to us. Your response to our family
was tremendous and unlike
anything that we would have
expected from the work place.
The food, monies, floral
expressions, phone calls and visits
from management and his peers
have meant so much. We especially
needed the many stories that you
shared about Terrell, they brought
comfort for our pain. We were so
proud to see so many of you in
attendance at his service; Terrell
would have been proud too.
A special thank you to the Bradford
High School Class of 1977 and
Francis Perry for her determined
spirit to bring you all together for
this last tribute to your classmate.
Again, we appreciated the floral
expressions, monetary gifts, visit'
and particularly the participation
in many capacities during his
service.
A special thank you to the
wonderful staff at Haile Funeral


Home for a very professional
service from start to finish; and
their constant care and attention to
our needs before, during, and
ongoing.

Last but certainly not least, to our
Pastor, the Rev. James Wilcox and
first lady, Sister Jeanette Wilcox
and our Ebenezer Church family;
we thank you for everything and for
always being therefore us through it
all and ongoing.


"There are so many other
individuals we could thank but
space does not permit so you will
hear from us personally. To our
family who came out in numbers to
support yu and engulf us in their
care, we love you all.
We ask one more thing of each of
you and that is to keep us in your
prayers as we will keep you in ours.

Weighless Weight Loss offers reduction programs


By ARNIE HARRIS
Monitor Staff Writer
If you are a man, woman or
child who feels strongly the need
to shed those unnecessary and
unhealthy pounds, the Weighless
Weight Loss Center in Keystone
Heights is just the place for \ou
to get started and begin seeing
immediate and sansft ing results.
Established b\ Audrey
Lightsey, a licensed nutritionist
and nurse. Weighless Weight
Loss Center has been successful-
ly helping many people in the
area achieve dramatic %%eight
losses since it first opened over a
year and a half ago.'
Relying on no gimmicky or fad
diets, the center uses mienus. spe-
:ially designed bh Lightsey, tai-'
lored to each indit idual's dietary
and weight loss needs. It is a pro-
gram, that emphasizes lifestyle
changes, not strictly "the diet."
A client will learn that it not so'
much what they are eating, but
what else they are eating with it.
that can make an important
difference.
The center's diets are designed
to provide nutritionally well-bal-
anced meals which can! be eaten
at home as well as restaurants.
Menus will include poultry ,
seafood, lean meats, fresh fruits,
vegetables, dairy products and
bread.
In addition, special vitamins
and herbs are offered that ensure
the individual's health andcon-
tinued success on his or her diet.
Selina Cone, a weight loss spe-
cialist at the center, said that the
program entails weekly visits by
clients during which they are
measured, have their blood pres-
sure checked and discuss the suc-
cess of any problems they may be
having on their diet program. If
needed, menus will be .djiuiJd to
ensure smooth progress in the
loss of pounds.
Cone said that male clients can


expect to lose three to four
pounds a week, while females
will shed two to three pounds.
"Men especially like our pro-
gram because they get to eat a
lot," she said, laughingly.
She added that the average cli-
ent can 'expect to lose from 35 to
50 pounds in the first three
months of their program.
Additional significant benefits
are that clients gradually find that
they no longer need to take blood
pressure, cholesterol or other
medications.
Once the person reaches his or
her target weight, they begin a
year of maintenance where they.
re-learn ho, to eai.
Cone, herself, is a living exam-
ple of the center's effectiveness
as she was able to lose close to 50
pounds and 62 inches.
Cone spoke very candidly of
the effect her personal weight
loss has had on her life.
Before I started my journey
\ith Weighless Weight,Loss, I
was insecure about facing people
who didn't already know and
care about me. I felt sluggish,
drained and found it impossible
to.enjoy anything as simple as a
short \% alk. M1 doctor warned me
of being high risk for a heart
attack, putting me on a drug to
reduce my triglycirides and cho-
lesterol. After feeling hopeless, I
prayed for help because' I was'
unsuccessful in losing the weight
on my own. That's when 'my
friend Audrey from Weighless
approached me, sharing that she
would love to help me. It was
then I became a consultant at
Weighless.. It has drastically
changed my life, and how I'm
able to share it with others! I have
lost close to 50 pounds and 62
inches and my latest blood work
was perfect which allowed me to
get off of the medication at my
doctor's recommendation. I have,
come down six dress sizes and


'i g


now can enjoy a long walk as
well as many other activities;
Most of all I can face people with
confidence and enjoy sharing this
program with everyone who
expresses a need to improve their
quality of life. I am here at
Weighless Weight Loss Center in
Keystone Heights to serve and
help you. Call today, 352-473-
8808, and allow me to help with
your journey to a "healthier you."
The center has helped allage
groups from eight to 89, and all
types, from professional lawyers


from Gainesville to high school
football players.

Center-is located at 7435 B SR-
21, about a half of a mile north of

Pritchett to be recognized by Florida education commissioner


Marvin Pritchett will be one of
several recipients of the Florida
Department of Education
Commissioner's Business Recognition

This award is based on the
invaluable partnership that Pritchett

District. He is a strong advocate of
public education. His enthusiasm,
innovativeness and genuine concern
for the students are exemplary. His
commitment through physical and
monetary contributions gives the
students the extras that make our
school system unique.

FWC
simplifies
special opp
hunt,."'
application-
The Florida Fish and.
Wildlife Conser\ action
Commission (FWC) will
begin accepting applications
for quota hunt permits -and
special-opportunity hunt
permits for next year's hunting
seasons through its Total
Licensing System (TLS) this
summer.
This means hunters will'
submit their applications at
any one of the more than 600
license agents who sell hunting
and fishing licenses, all county'
tax collectors' -offices or from
FWC's Web site,
MyFWC.com. For the first
time since 1975, hunters will,
not mail application forms to
Tallahassee to apply for the
quota hunt permits.
"Handling thousands of
paper applications and dealing
complaints from hunters who
* missed random drawings
because the postal service took


longer than expected to deliver
their .applications was
cumbersome and inefficient,"
said Eddie White, FWC's quota
hunt coordinator. "We have
been issuing 'licenses and
permits through the TLS since
2003, and this is`,,a. planned
progression to streamline the
hunt permit application
process."
Hunters seeking special-
opportunity hunt permits will
be the first to use this ,new
application process. Between
May I and June 15, hunters
will be able to submit as many
$5 special-opportunity
applications as the) would like
through license agents, county
tax collectors' offices or online
at NIM.FWC.com. Application
forms will be available at all
FWC regional. offices
beginning April 20.
"Once the random drawing is
completed, we will send
invoices to successful
applicants," White said. "They
then take the invoice to any
license agent, pay a permit fee
by the specified deadline and
walk out with. perm.j, in hand,'
Tf one..cU tv


seven to 10 days."
Hunters seeking quota hunt
permits can apply from June 1-


11 at license vendors, county
*tax collectors' offices or online
at MyFWC.com. Application
forms will be available at all
tax collectors' offices and FWC
regional offices beginning May,
15. These forms are still
necessary to provide license
agents with hunt choices, dates
and personal information.
"During this period, you can
submit applications online
minutes before the deadline and
know your application %was,
accepted," White said. "You
will'be able to walk; away from
a license agent with a receipt
showing the tN\pe of quota
application you submitted;
%which drawing you are in and
what choices you made.",
Remaining unissued quota
permits will be made available
directly from license agents,
county tax collectors' offices
and online at MyFWC.com on
a first-come, first-served basis
once the random drawing has
been completed.
The first change in the
system hunters will notice is
that stickers, tabs and
photocopies of licenses are no
longer required with the
... .. ..>,;. ,1 ..-.r ,I


permits when they apply. If
they do not have the proper
license or permit, they may
obta in one .where they apply;
Another major change Will
be a closed period between the
first and second phases of the
program, from June, 12 ,- July
31, during which no
applications will be accepted.
The TLS is expected to,,
drastically reduce the time
hunters have to eait for the
results of the random draw ings.
"During the next few
months we will be providing
more details about the new\
process." White said. "We want
hunters to be able to get as
much information about the
changes as possible."

Local drivers have a good 2004


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A. pair of drivers from
Bradford County made 2004 a
year to remember, with one
recording his most wins in a
season and the' other laying
claim to his 100th career win.
Doyle Boatwright entered last
season with his eye on the
Florida Pro Series points
championship. He did not reach,
that, finishing third in the
standings, but he did win 11
late-model races, which meant a
lot to him.
"Five, before that year, was
the most I had ever won in a
year," said Boatwright, a
member of the Dixie Speed
Racing team.
Henry Hodges, owner of
Dixie Speed Racing,' said
Boatwright, despite not winning
the Florida Pro Series points
championship,. still
accomplished several goals.
"We set a goal at the
beginning of last year to try to
win 10 races, finish in the top
five in the Florida Pro Series
and win the division
championship at Ellisville.
-Speedway,"-Hodges- 'aild. "We
wound up with 11 wins, third in
points in the Florida Pro and we
were late-model champions at
Ellisville, so that was a. good
year."
Jason Garver, meanwhile,
reached a milestone when he
earned his 100t career win on
June 26 last year. He finished
the season with 10 wins-five
in the street stock division and


five in the Florida modified
division.
"I had a pretty good year,"
Garver said.
Garver, who is in his 10'h
year of racing, has already
gotten off to a good start this
year by winning the Florida
Funfest at the Lake City
Speedway.
Both Garver and Boatwright
began their racing careers with
similar thoughts-they were
just hoping to get one win. Both
know drivers who have failed to
get one win, let alone 11 in one
season or 100 in a career.
However, both drivers found
out that one win was not
enough to satisfy them.
"Actually, the more you win
the more you want to win,"
Boatwright said.
Added Garver: "The more the
merrier." '
Garver has approximately 70
more career wins than
Boatwright, who began racing
in earnest in 1992. In fact,
Garver once claimed two wins
in one day at two different
tracks. However, he downplays
the role he has played in
accumulating those wins.
"If you don't have a car that
can win,.a driver isn't going to
win," Garver said.
Boatwright and Hodges are
more than,happy to give Garver
credit. Boatwright said it is true
that a driver has to have a good
car and good equipment to be
successful, but there are plenty
of drivers out there with more
money _and, thus, better
equipment than both Garver and
Boatwright.


"Jason is a real good.driver,"
Boatwright said.
"He'll tell you he's just an
average driver, but don't let him
fool you," Hodges said, adding
that if for some reason
Boatwright could not drive in a
particular race, Garver is
probably the driver he would
most want to drive in
Boatwright's place.
It would take a lot for
Boatwright to miss a race,
though. He talked of a time in
2000 when he had strep throat
'and could hardly hold his head
up. Yet Boatwright did not stay
home that Saturday night. He
was on the track and behind the
wheel, claiming he felt better
once the race got underway..
"After I got in the car, raced
and got hot and sweaty, I was
good to go," he said.
"The cure for any ailment is
to go, to the racetrack," said
Hodges, who made sure he got
married on a Friday night so he
wouldn't miss the races on
Saturday.
Of course even if a driver is
healthy, there is no guarantee he
will finish a race or come away
from the track injury free. There
were two incidences last year in
which Garver and Boatwright
could've been hurt, but,
fortunately, neither one was.
Garver was driving Dixie
Speed Racing's back-up car in
one race last year when the
screws that hold the steering
wheel in place came loose
during the last lap of the race.
Garver, who wound up placing
third, drove into the tech area
after the race and handed the


steering wheel to Hodges.
That same night also saw a
joint on the steering rod of the
car Boatwright was driving fall
off.
Scenarios like that are why
Hodges prays for all drivers
before the races begin.
"Both of those boys -could've
hit the wall at 100 miles an
hour," Hodges said.
Boatwright recalled another
incident last year in which he
was not hurt, but his car was not
in the greatest shape. He was
running a heat race when his
right rear tire went flat. Another
driver came along and tore the
left side of Boatwright's car off.
It was a scramble to put a
body back onto the car before.
the main feature, Boatwright
said. He and his crew were able
.to do so and Boatwright did
more than just compete in the.
main race.
"There were 22 cars there
that night and we still won,"
Boatwright said.
A hard-working, dependable
pit crew, consisting mainly of
Ryan Mason, Tim Parrott and
Sonny Taylor, was instrumental
in that. Boatwright said a roll of
duct tape somebody gave him
also came in handy when
putting his car back together.
Just as someone helped
Boatwright, Hodges said the
Dixie Speed Racing team does
not hesitate to help other
drivers.
"We go over there to have a
good time and help people,

Bradford's Forsyth places fifth at wrestling finals


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Bradford High School
wrestler Justin Forsyth, after
two straight losses, pulled out a
win in his final match, defeating
Englewood Lemon Bay's Karl
Kuezmera 10-4 to place fifth


overall in the 140-pound class
at the FHSAA Finals, which
were held in Lakeland Feb. 24-
26.
One of Forsyth's losses at the
state finals came against Port
Orange Atlantic's Mitchell
Balboa, a wrestler he had
already defeated twice this
season, including in the Region


2 semifinals. However,
Bradford coach Brett Purdy said
things did not go Forsyth's way
in the match as Balboa won 3-2.
Purdy said the loss was
disappointing, as he felt Forsyth
was better than a fifth-place
wrestler at the tournament, but
Purdy was still proud of the
season Forsyth had. Forsyth

She was named the team's
offensive player of the year
following her sophomore
season and the defensive player
of the year following her junior
season. Could MVP be next for
;Keystone Heights softball

That remains to be seen, but
what is known for sure is that
Beck will have the opportunity
to continue playing following
her graduation from KHHS this
year after receiving a
scholarship from Madison's
North Florida Community
'College.
"I'm excited," said Beck,
daughter of Glen and Dolores
Beck. "I can't wait to see what
(North Florida head coach Joe

Morabito, who is currently in
his fifth season at North
Florida, did not wait long to
make a scholarship offer to
Beck. Beck said she received
the offer immediately after a
tryout.
"Anytime you come across
an athlete like Cherish, you do

Morabito said. "We're happy
she's decided to come on

spot in the starting lineup.
Things should go well for her if
the first impression she makes
at North Florida is similar to the
one she made at KHHS. She
was moved up to the varsity
team during her eighth grade
year for a regional playoff game
and she did .something most of
the varsity players couldn't do
in that particular game.
"Our varsity players could
not hit the ball," Keystone head
coach Kathy Smith said. "We
got her up to bat, she hit the ball
and got on base."
Beck has been a starter since
then and one of her' main'
attributes during that time, in
Smith's opinion, is her hustle
while on the field defensively.
"She's not afraid to dive,"
Smith said. "No matter where
(the ball) is, she's going to go
for it."
And if she gets some bumps
and bruises in the process?
Well, she doesn't let that bother
her, according to Beverly
Lasseter. Lasseter has coached
Beck the last four years-the
last two years as her head
coach-in the Gainesville
Gators organization.
"She never wants to come out
of the game," Lasseter said.

from North Florida. Also pictured are Beck's brother,

Beck has been playing
second base, but that could
change at North Florida.
Morabito said, he recruits
players who have the athletic


ability to play anywhere on the.
field. That way, if a player can
produce at the plate, she can get
onto the field and play
wherever Morabito needs her.

within 7-6 in the fourth.
The teams remained close

about afterward as they lost 12-1
