said Womack. "We want
people to feel comfortable."
The pastor is encouraging
people to come as- they are.
"It's less like church and more
like a seminar," said Womack.
"We want to invite people in
and not scare them away."
Womack said he hopes that
comfort level carries over to
those of other faiths as well.
"We don't care what
denomination you are, we just
want you to attend," said
Womack. "We're not looking
to convert anyone, just to have
them study with us if they have
an interest in the book."
The style of the service is
nontraditional as well. Live
bands, drama performances,
and interpretive dance and
motion have all been a part of
the program. "We are trying to
offer something fresh and
creative to our members as
well as non-members," said
Womack.
With this program, the
pastor wanted to have all
members of the church be able
to worship as one. "I knew we
could not accomplish that at
our present location," said
Womack. It was decided that
the church would rent the
auditorium at Union County
High School. The move turned
out to be a.smart one. The
church is averaging more than
250 participants per week.
Senior members of the


church have found the
approach refreshing.'
"Although I was skeptical at
first, I have seen the results of
our presence outside the
church," said church member
Steve Saunders. "We are
bringing people to Jesus who
may not have found him
without our alternative site."
Sounders was brought up in
an era when you went to
church in you Sunday best. "It
was just out of respect," said
Saunders. "But God does not
judge us on what we wear." He
said he has found the casual
dress approach refreshing as
well.
Saunders said the program
itself has been insightful as
well as refreshing. "This
program will help the new
Christian, as well as those who
accepted Christ a very long
time ago," said Saunders.
Saunders said the book puts
the teachings in a very simple-
to-understand format.
"Applying the teachings to
day-to-day life is easy because
of the way it is written," said
Saunders. "While I have
enjoyed the program, I look
forward to getting back to
familiar surroundings."
When the church goes back
to its own facility, it will take

The First Baptist Church of
Lake Butler is currently
conducting a program that is
helping individuals focus on
their purpose in life.
"Our '40 Days of Purpose'
helps individuals find out what
they are here (on earth) for,"
said Rusty Womack, pastor of
the church. The program is
based on the book "The
Purpose-Driven Life" by Rick
Warren.
Warren is the pastor of
Saddleback Church in Lake
Forest, Calif. According to
purposedrivenlife.com, the
book is a groundbreaking
manifesto on the meaning of
life. The site says the'book is a
life message of Warren's. It is
divided into 40 chapters that
can be read as a daily
devotional. On Sunday,
Womack reviews what they
have read and helps them
apply it to their own lives.
The book looks at five
aspects of God's purpose for
each person Worship,
fellowship, discipleship,
ministry and evangelism are all
covered in the book.
The program gets away
from the stereotypical idea
most people have of a church
setting. "Most people think of
church as a place where you
have to dress up and is stuffy,"


Questions about Pre-k h


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Union County School
District has many questions
that need to be answered
before the state mandated
.Universal Pre-K program can
begin in the summer of 2006.
"We have not gotten the
answers from the state for the
questions we need answers to,"
said district Superintendent
Carlton Faulk. This is
hampering the district's
planning for the program. To
date the district has not learned
how much -funding it will
receive for the program, what
curriculum to use or how many
students the program will
involve.
In November 2002, Florida
voters approved an amendment
to the state's constitution
providing for a Voluntary Pre-
Kindergarten (VPK) program.
House Bill IA created a
program designed to prepare 4-
year-old children for


kindergarten.
Every child who attains the
' age of four on 6r before Sept' I
of the school year will be
eligible for the program. The
program allows parents to
enroll his or her child in the
program free of charge.
VPK will be different from
other forms of daycare in that
it will have a strictly directed
and curriculum driven basis.
The curriculum will focus on
developing literacy sk-illFs,
writing and vocabulary
The program will b':
required to be a 300-hour
program in the sumrhmer time
and a 540 hour program during
the regular school year. The
district will have to have a
summer program available by
the 2006 summer school
session.
While these facts are
helping the school system get a
basic idea of what is expected,
they do not address the
specifics the ,county needs
answers to. Recently the Union


County School Board held a
workshop to go over what they.
did know about 'pte'program."''"
One specific question the
school district is looking to
answer is how much funding it
will receive for the program.
"The state has not given us any
information about the funding
of the program," said Faulk.
School officials best
estimates are that the district
will receive approximately
. $2,500 per student for the
program. They have also
projected that 140 students will
attend the program. These
estimates leave the school with
a budget, of $329,315 for the
program.
The funding does not look at
costs such as transportation.
"The issue of funding for
transportation was not
addressed in the bill or by
lawmakers," said Faulk. The
North East Florida Educational
Consortium (NEFEC) is
petitioning lawmakers on the
behalf of several school


districts, including Union
County, for the funding.
""'One- problem with these'
estimates is that we do not
know the actual number of
students that will participate,"
said Faulk. The district
estimates show that between
60 and 170 students might take
advantage of the program.
One factor that is affecting
these projections is that the
school system will not be the
only provider of the program.
Licensed child care facilities,
family day care homes and
faith-based child care
providers will have the option
of providing the program as
well. "Parents have a variety
options when it comes to
where their children will go,"
said Faulk.
Parents also have the option
of not sending their 4-year-old
to the program. The program is
voluntary and does not
mandate that children must
attend.
The 300-hour summer


program requirement may nurt
the district as well. School
*officials 'estimate- that the-
program would be required to
start the first day after the end
of the regular school year.
Children would have to attend
class 6.8 hours per day five
days a week until the day
before school started to meet
this requirement.
"Is it reasonable for us to ask
a 4-year-old to attend school
6.8 hours a day," said Bobbie
Morgan,' the district's
personnel and curriculum
director. With classroom
instruction and transportation,
it is estimated a child would
have a nine-hour school day.
The school district is also
unsure if it will be able to
recruit enough certified
teachers for the program. As
the bill currently reads, only
teachers with a bachelor's
degree would be able to teach
during the summer program..

Enhanced 911 system close to being reality


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer ',
In the very near future
residents of Union County will
have to get used to a using a
new address.
The enhanced 911 system
will soon be on line' at the,
Union County Sheriff's Office.
The system will allow
emergency dispatchers to see
exactly where a caller is.
"When you call 911, the
dispatcher will have your
precise location and be able to
send emergency help quickly,"
said Doug York. York is the
director of the Office of
Emergency Management
(OEM) for the county.
The department is
overseeing the transition from
rural route addresses to the
new 911 addressing system.
"We are very close to bringing
rthe system fully online,' said
York.
All the information the
dispatchers will see must first
be put into a database. That
information will be
downloaded into the
dispatchers' current system
where it can interact with-the -
system. Before it can be put in,
the database must be more than
95 percent accurate.
Currently the database is,


more than 80 percent accurate.
A variety of issues such as
unlisted phone numbers and
disconnection of service is
making OEM's job very
difficult. "We are going door
to door to verify that the phone
matches the address," said
York. This process is very time
consuming.
"If residents could call their
telephone provider and give
them their 911 address, the
process could be excelerated,"
said York. "By making that
call residents will help us get
them better service."
When calling your phone
provider you should remind
them that you are only
providing them with your
physical address. The post
office has not yet.switched
over to the new addressing
system. Any mail with the new
address will be returned to the
sender. "Let your phone
provider know to keep sending
your bill to your rural route
address," said York.
The process of converting all
the rural route addresses to 911
addresses is a tedious process.
Each old address must be
matched to the new address.
The new address-must then be
matched with the correct
phone number. "The system
recognizes the address from


the- phone number," said
assistant OEM director John
Walker.
Walker has been working on
converting the addresses for
several months now. "We have
less than 600 addresses that
still need to be verified," said
Walker. Walker is sending
people into- the 'community
knocking on doors to verify
they have each house correctly
identified.
One problem he has run into
are homes without phones.
"Some people only use cellular
phones so it makes the process
difficult," said Walker. The
system will not recognize the
caller because phone numbers
and addresses are tied together
in the system.
Currently the county has
no' way of finding someone
that is calling from a cellular
phone. "But that will change in
the next phase of the project,"
said York. After completing
the 911 address upgrade, the
county will'move into a phase
that will allow them to find
cellular phone users.
The system will work with
GPS tracking to pinpoint the
caller's location. This ability
,will greatly aid the emergency

John Walker works to make sure that everything In the
911 addressing system is correct. The department Is

operational. For more about the system and Its

Those teachers with a Child
Development Associate (CDA)
certificate could teach during
the regular school year.
While the district is
uncertain of which curriculum
to use, it did look at two types
that are currently in use in
other school districts. The
Bright Beginnings program is
currently being used in North
Carolina schools. It is used in
both school and day care
settings. It serves 17-19
students per classroom and
provides six hours a day of
reading, math and vocabulary.
It provides before and after
school care as well.
The Opening the World of
Learning (OWL) curriculum
provides a comprehensive
early literacy program.
Listening, oral language,
reading and writing are some if
the skills the program focuses
.on. Science is built into the
curriculum as well. The
program is used in the school
setting as well as day. care
_setting. -
"We will continue to'
conduct workshops and try to
get the answers to these
questions," said Morgan. She
said it is hoped many of them
will be answered in the
upcoming Florida legislative

Once the enhanced system is
in place, the OEM will only be
required to update the system
daily. "We will probably only
have to change about 12
addresses a week at that
point," said Walker. A far cry
from what the department has
to deal with currently.
With just a few exceptions,
city of Lake. Butler residents
will not see their addresses
change. Several years ago the
city implemented the changes
before they were required to.
"The 911 addressing system
has made all the difference in
the world," said City Manager
Richard Tillis.
He said the addresses make
it easier for city employees to
find a residence. "They don't
have to remember where a
street name is, they all fall in
numerical sequence," said
Tillis.
OEM hopes to have the
system fully operational by

Bike-a-thon raises money for hospital BC-UC people.
needed for


By JAMES REQMOND
Times Staff Writer


On Feb. 14, the students of
the Little Rainbows Learning
Center had a lot to spin their
wheels about.
The students held a bike-a-
thon to raise money for Saint
Jude's Children Research
Hospital. With their parents
help, the Pre-K and three and
four-year-old classes raised
more than $2,000 to help fund
the hospital.
Grace Wilder raised the
most money collecting $248
on her own. All the
participants in the event took
home prizes like stuffed
animals, a bike-a-thon license,
bags and t-shirts. Prizes were
based on the amount of money
each child raised.
The Union County Sheriff's
Office (UCSO) was every
helpful during the event.
Deputies from UCSO blocked
off several streets so that
participants would have a safe
ride. Little Rainbows staff said
they thank the UCSO for their
support of the event.
St. Jude's is a research
hospital that welcomes
referrals of children and
adolescents with newly
diagnosed untreated or
suspected cancer. All patients
are accepted to the hospital
regardless of their ability to
pay. The hospital covers all
costs of the treatment while at
the facility. The hospital is
located in Memphis, Tenn.

some of the new things it has
learned. "We'll continue to
offer some of these things to a
certain degree," said Womack.
"We'll definitely incorporate
more drama into our student
ministry. They do such a great
job."


Church receives
unexpected benefit

More than two years ago the
church began holding two
services every Sunday. The
spilt services served a dual
purpose. "We were getting
overflow attendance and we
wanted to accommodate all our
members," said Womack. "The
second service helped us do
both."
As time went on the pastor
noticed the two services had
done more than he expected.
"We began to have even bigger
crowds," said Womack. He
said he believes the dual
services allowed even more
people a chance to worship. It,
was -a welcome surprise for the
pastor.
While the program was
going on, the pastor intended
to kill two birds with one
stone. "Our original plan was
to have renovations done to the
church while the program was
taking place," said Womack.
Scheduling problems and other
delays forced the church to put
those plans on hold. Womack
said the church plans to use the
high school again once the
renovations begin.

Emergency personnel learn about ICS Three Rivers
implements


By JAMES REDMOND ,
Times Staff Writer
On Feb. 26, emergency
personnel in Union County
learned the history and
practicality of the Incident
Command System (ICS).
Personnel from Union
County Emergency Medical
Services, the Union County
Fire Department, the Lake
Butler Fire Department, the
Union County Sheriffs Office,
Union County Emergency
Management, the Department
of Corrections and the Florida
Division of Forestry all took
part in the eight-hour class.
ICS helps emergency
responders effectively deal
with all aspects of an
emergency situation. From the
simplest incident to the most
complex, the system helps
personnel coordinate their
efforts in a timely manner.
"The program's objective is
to provide a street-smart look
at the aspects of incident
command," said instructor Ron
Gore of Safety Systems Inc. "It
gives personnel a timely and,
effective response strategy in
the management of domestic
incidents."
Gore's teaching style was a
practical, hands-on, no-
nonsense approach to the
system. "This class is taught
by people who lived .through
it," said Gore. Gore has real-
time experience in most of the
more than 2,000 case studies
Safety Systems has on file.
He was one of the first
members of the Jacksonville
Fire Department's hazard
materials unit. Gore has been
an emergency responder for
more than 30 years. He, along
with Bill Waters and Murray
Chappell, gave participants a


look into how the ICS works.
ICS goes all the way back to
..the early 1970s. In 1970, 16
firefighters in California lost
theirvljves in just 13 days
battling -'jidland fires. More
than 700 "structures were
destroyed and more than
500,000 acres'-were burned.
Loses totalled imre than $18
million, per day.
Congress then mandated the
United States Forest Service to
design a system to effectively-
coordinate the actions of all
agencies. Out of that mandate
the Firefighting Resources of
California Organized for
Potential Emergencies
(FIRESCOPEJ was born.
It incorporated two major
components: ICS and the
Multi-Agency Coordination
System. The program helped
firefighting agencies agree on
common terminology,
procedures and conducted
testing.
In 1982 FIRESCOPE was
used as a model to create the
National Interagency Incident
Management System (NIIMS).
This system further integrated
the workings of fire
departments. Both
FIRESCOPE and NIIMS were
then blended and updated to
create the National' Incident
Management System (NIMS)
which is currently in use by
most firefighting agencies.
NIMS provides a consistent
flexible and adjustable national
framework within which all
levels of emergency
responders can work. This will
help them better organize their
efforts to manage domestic
incidents regardless of cause,.
size, location or complexity.
Each participant was
provided with a Florida
Incident Field Operations


i


effects the emergencies had on
the community. Not only the
effects of the spill itself, but
the citizen response weeks
after the incident was over.
The class will help 'all
participants meet the
requirements for ihe
Department of Homeland
Security's guidelines of
incident command. All
emergency responders are
required to attend such
training.
The Union County
Department of Emergency
Management funded the class.
"We want to make sure our
emergency personnel are ready
for any incident that could
happen," said emergency
management director Doug
York. "With this information
our counties first line of
defense will know how to
coordinate their efforts to be
effective."


Guide (FIFOG) and a 2004
Emergency Response
Guidebook ,(ERG) for
hazardous materials. FIFOG is
a guide on any handling any
type of emergency situation.
The guide covers wildland and
structural fires, health
emergencies, law enforcement
situations, natural disasters and
terrorism incidents, including
those involving Weapons of
Mass Destruction.
The guide looks at how each
incident should be handled.
For example, chapter three of
the manual covers area
command. The chapter lays out
a chain of command for an
incident. It also gives the area
commander-a checklist to run
during an incident.
The ERG gives emergency
responders a list of the
numbers carriers are required
to post on the side of any
container that has hazardous
materials. The number
coincides with the type of
chemical that is being carried
in the container. The number
gives responders a quick and
easy way to know how. to
handle a chemical spill.
From that number an
emergency responder can find
an area in the guide that will
instruct him or her on how to
handle' the situation. For
example, the guide for
ammonia tells responders that
it may be toxic if inhaled,
ingested or absorbed through
the skin, It also gives
information on the explosive
potential of the chemical, what
protective clothing must be
worn and if evacuations need
to be done.
Participants were also shown
video tape of news coverage
from certain incidents. The
coverage highlighted what

A&o zw Stear, Awbfr adl.1 al


Card o is

To ALL the members of our Union
County family:
I never dreamed that I would lose
my husband at such a young and
I iB hopeful time in our lives. However,
out of this terrible tragedy, a sea
of blessings has clearly risen in
mine and my children's lives.
These blessings have come rom
all of you who have shown how
much 5ou loved, respected, and
cherished the man Bobby was.
Bobby was a free-spirited man
who was honest, trustworthy, and
Bobbie Gibson above everything, he loved his
family beyond all reason. Through
this time, we have seen that he touched so many of you in his life because
he ivas a genuine and good person with qualities that are only found very
scarcely in today's world. All of the support that you have shown our
family shows us that you all loved him as much as we did (and still do).
We wish we could send each and every deserving person and family a
thank you card, but this task has become rather impossible to accomplish,
though. Every time we feel we have done justice to those who have helped
us and shown their support, we realize thai we have left out so many
loving and caring people. Therefore, I hope that all of you will remember
Bobby and accept this humble and grateful thank you from my family to
you and yours.
We thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers, and kindness. Thank you
for honoring the memory of the man we loved so much. Thank you all for
expressing how you felt about Bobby and the man that he was. We felt that
we were possibly being punished with the passing of the man who was the
backbone support of this family. But, just as we are.refreshed with seeing
the sunshine after the rain, you have all helped to reassure us that we are
loved and appreciated and we are not being punished because we are
certain that in time we will be reunited with Bobby and his wonderfulness.
I wish that I could sit down and personally write each and every single
person who has shown support to me and my children, but as you all know
that in a time'such as this for my family, our minds become clouded with
confusion, emotions, and the daunting tasks of trying to get everything
prepared in a timely manor, while still respecting the man Bobby was and
has taught us how to be.
Again, please, accept my humble gratitude and appreciation to each
person and family who has helped us through this catastrophic time in our
lives. This community has shown how strong it is and how each member of
this community is supported in their times of need such as my own. Thank
you for loving me, my family, and especially my husband. Thank you all
for everything you have done. Thank you from the essence of who I am.
With all my love, respect, and appreciation,
Sincerely,
Linda D. Gibson

Don't buy
your child a--
duck for
Easter
As the Easter holiday fast
approaches, many parents
contemplate the idea of
purchasing cute little ducklings
as gifts for their children. The
Florilla Fish and Wildlife
Cons-ervation Commission
(FWC) suggests buying your
child the stuffed-animal
variety instead.
"Although these mallard
due might .make nice pets
whiiEthey are young, they can
livegor 10 years or more and
quicky outgrow the 'cute and
fuzzy stage,' leaving full-size
droppings on your patio and
outd.-or furniture," said Diane
Eggenan, FWC waterfowl
biolWgist. "When this hap-pens,
parents and children often
growtired of caring for these
petfsand decide to release them
inti~ie wild."
)Wlat you may not realize is
thatthis is illegal and is putting
Florda's native wildlife in
jeopardy. Last July, the FWC
passeO a rule clarifying that it
is Unlawful to release captive-
reared mallard ducks into the
wild-.This rule also requires a
permit to buy or sell.mallards
in 7lFlorida. Por more
information on the mallard,
chegl out: http://www.wild
florida.org/tnallard/.
One reason Abr this rule is
that.domesticated ducks,- once
released, are capable of
transmitting diseases and
compete with native wildlife
for food and habitat. The more
important reason is that
releasing these mallards into
the wild threatens the existence

savetime and money...


of the Florida mottled duck, a
unique subspecies found only
in peninsular Florida.
"These domesticated or feral
mallards are crossbreeding
with the mottled duck,
producing hybrid offspring,"
, Eggeman said. "This is a
serious concern and if not
stopped, this hybridization
could result in the Florida
mottled duck becoming
extinct.
Wild mallards are migratory
birds, inhabiting Florida only
during the -winter months. In
the spring they fly north to
breed and are not present by
the time the mottled duck
mating season begins in
Florida. On the other hand, pet
mallards, once released, do not
migrate and will become
established, year-round
residents of our state and when
they mate with wild mottled
__ducks, it nudges Florida's
mottled duck toward
extinction.
The Florida mottled duck
population is relatively small,
'with the breeding population
estimated at only 30,000-
40,000 and already FWC
biologists are saying that
perhaps as many as 12 percent
of these ducks are showing
genetic evidence of
hybridization.
Today, the future of
Florida's mottled duck is
uncertain, but the fate of the
subspecies is in human hands.
The solution begins with not
buying children ducks for
Easter and in educating others
about the issues ando .
consequences of the situation. *'
For more information on
protecting Florida's mottled
duck, contact one of FWC's
waterfowl offices at (850) 488.

Florida, Shands are perfect ingredients for dietitian's life


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
If you love warm-weather
and. water-related acti icl,.
then Jacksonville would be an
ideal place to live,
If you want a job with diverse
opportunities within your career
field of dietetics, then a ho-pitial
in a small town may fit tie bill
Marisa Salt, a registered
dietitian, can attest to both,
having recently moved to
Jackon\ ille and taking a
position as full-time dietitian at
Shands at Staike
S.di!, who has moved around
a couple of times because of her
husband's job, returns to
Jacksonville, where she spent
most of her childhood. She was
born in California, but her
family moved to Jacksonville
when she was a year old.
Now she's back after living
most recently in Omaha, Neb.,
where she experienced a lot
colder weather than she ever
did in Florida.
"I love swimming and going
to the beach," Salt said. "That's
prxb.bly one of the biggest
:e..,:-. l'mn thrilled to be back
in Florida."
Being back in the Sunshine
State also led to her applying
for, and being hired for, the
dieianiin position at Shands at
Starke. In a position elsewhere,
Salt said she would probably
concentrate on' one area of
dietetics, which is different that
what she's experiencing
currently at Shands.
"The neat thing about this job
is I'm able to do all areas of
dietetics-food service
, management, clinical inpatient
and outpatient," Salt said.
Salt, who has-beenrworking
at Shands at Starke since Dec.
20 of last year, manages the
food service operation, both in
retail and patient service. She

hospital's cafeteria, and does

than it has and Shands at Starke
is no exception. Tihe Tribute
Gift Program allows anyone in
.the community to help meet the
needs of a large number of
patients who use the hospital:
Funds donated through the
Tribute Gift Program are used
to supplement other funding to
purchase needed equipment,
expand the number of
"community outreach"
programs (providing
educational programs related to'
health care) and defray costs of
medical care for people who are
unable to pay.
The Tribute Gift Program
can be made in memory of or in
honor of, a loved one or
respected friend. It can be made
to recognize any special
occasion, as a get well wish for
a patient,-etc.
Shands at Starke will notify
the person or organization of
your choice about your
donation. Just indicate that you
want this done and pro\ ide the
address.
There are two ways a gift can
be made. One is to earmark it to
be used in the area of greatest
need. The other is to earmark it
for the Lillian Stump
Endowment Fund.
Stump is a longtime member
of the Shands at Starke.hospitalh
auxiliary who has volunteered a
lot of time and money to benefit
the parents. She donated a
substantial amount to act as the
basis for the endowment fund.
All donations to the Tribute
Gift Program are charitable
contributions and are tax
deductible. If you would like to
donate, send a check with name
and address of the donor clearly
indicated. Make -the check
payable to Shands at Starke.
Indicate if the donation is being
made in memory of or in honor
of someone. Indicate if the
donation should be made to the
Lillian Stump Endowment
Fund. Send the check to the
Shands at Stark Auxiliary,.

inpatient clinical assessment
and outpatient consultations.
She said she would like to see
more people on an outpatient
basis.
"(Shands at Starke was)
without a full-time dietitian for
close to a year," Salt said.
"That's why I'm working to
establish more of an outpatient
basis. I'm currently seeing
people, but it's not a whole lot."
People she sees on an
outpatient basis have to have a
physician's referral,, but Salt
would also like the opportunity
to cover dietary information
with the general public as a
whole. That could be achieved
by developing community
classes, which could cover such
topics as diabetes and low-fat,
low-cholesterol diets.
"I would be able to reach
more people that way," Sail-
Salt originally thought of
pursuing a career in which she

Shands at

dietitian and

manager since

would not have the opportunity
to share such information. She
went to school with the intent of
becoming a pharmacist. She
attended Santa Fe Community
College, then transferred to the
University of Florida. At UF,
she took a 'class on the
fundamentals of human
nutrition and her career path
wound up taking another
direction.
"I really loved it," Salt said of
the class, so I decided I would
change my major to dietetics."
The seed for pursuing a
career in dietetics may have
been planted earlier in Salt's
life. She said her mother was
somewhat of a "food guru,"
who talked to Salt about eating
healthy foods and prompted her
to eat such foods, while at the
same time never forcing her to
eat anything she did not want,
to.
Salt, also took a food and'
nutrition class in high school.


SHEFFIELD

PORTABLE BUILDINGS


She remembers the class
covering the food pyramid and
thinking to herself that it would
be neat to learn more about
nutrition.
"(That thought) was probably
in the back of my mind all
along," Salt said.
Salt obtained a bachelor's
degree at UF and completed an
internship at the University of
Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. She
worked at various jobs in food
service and worked in long-
term care for approximately a
year when she lived in Omaha.
Salt, upon moving back to
Jacksonville, saw the
advertisement for the position at
Shands at Starke and pursued it.
She admitted she was not
familiar with the Starke area,
but she was familiar with
Shands hospitals from her time
at UF.
"Even though I had not really
ever been here, I knew that
Shands in Gainesville was
really a great place," Salt said.
"They do great things. I knew it
Would be the same here as
well."
Now she .has. a job that
presents her with various tasks
as well as living back in a state
that allows her to enjoy her
warm-weather pursuits. What
some people may really want to
know, however, is this-as a
registered dietitian, what does
Salt like to eat?
She claims she does not
really have a favorite food,
though she admits there is
,something she enjoys, which
makes her feel a little
guilty-peanut butter cups.
That does not sound very
healthy, but Salt said
moderation is.the key.
"I try not to -eat those very
often," she said.

Local doctor opening her own practice in Starke


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

Bradford County has been
home for Dr. Joelle Simon
since 1979 and she fully
expected her hometown to
share in the celebration of the
realization of her dream of
opening her own practice -
but she said the community
has more than exceeded her
expectations.
"Bradford County and the
surrounding community has
just been absolutely wonderful
in helping us prepare for this,"
she said, as she surveyed her
new office located at 1210
Andrews Circle in Starke.
That location is on a side
street behind Powell's Drive-
In and almost directly across
from the office of the
Department of Children and
Families.
Simon shared an office with
chiropractor Dr. David Sikes
from 1999 until going forward
with plans to open her own
office this year.
"I want to say a very special
thank you to Dr. Sikes who
was my business partner for
the last four years," said
Simon. She said Sikes was
very supportive through the
years, but now she is ready to
establish her own office.
"With all the growth and
development of my practice...
It's just time for me to move
on." she said.

County to take full advantage
of what the college has to
offer," said Rezaei.

To the Absent One
At the close of day,
I miss you most of all
Still moments when the sun
has gone to rest,
.When lengthening shadows
creep across the lawn
And birds have flown away
to seek their nest.
The evening hours were
never lonely then,
For you were here with heart
so full and free;
But now when day is done,
how my heart yearns
To reach out and bring you
back to me.

The Carolina Crossmen, from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina,
travel across the eastern United States to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and to
encourage the Christian in their walk with the Lord. The goal of the Carolina Crossmen
is not to draw attention to themselves but to lead people in worship of the Savior who
died for all. After you've attended a Carolina Crossmen concert, they hope you have
laughed, worshiped, and been drawn closer to the Lord.
The style of the Carolina Crossmen has been described as an old Inspirations or
Kingsmen style. In other words, they have an old-timey southern gospel quartet sound.
The group sings many original songs by Carroll Blanton and other local writers such as
Jane Dills and Ila-Knight, but they also love the old songs, as you will be able to tell
after hearing them:
Come join us.

and there is not anyone else
who will work harder to help
the students and residents of
Bradford County get a college
education," said Rezaei.
He said one of his main
issues will be increasing
Bradford High School student
awareness of the dual
enrollment program and the
Florida Bright Futures
scholarship. "These programs
provide high school students
with a way to attend college
classes for free and they often
don't know about them until
it's too late," he said.
Rezaei graduated from BHS
in 2000 and is a political
science and economics major
at SFCC. His interest in
political science led him to
work as an intern with the
office of Florida
Representative Ed Jennings Jr.,
an experience he said was both
educational and interesting.
Rezaei has also received the
SFCC Presidential Student
Service Award for community
service he performed in
Bradford and Ala&hua
counties.
Anyone who is interested in
,'assisting Rezaei in his
campaign can contact him at
352-395-5913 or via e-mail at
sgvicepresident@sfcc.edu or
alanrez@yahoo.com. Rezaei's
party also has its own Web
site: www.voteus.tk.
If you would like to send a
donation to his campaign,
make the check payable to.
United Students of SFCC and
mail it to SFCC-Building S,
Room 147, 3000 NW 83"aSt.,

should learn is how to
endure. It is what he will
have most need to know.

John Moran's
nature
celebrated at
art festival


There's a spring tucked dee__
within the Ocala Nationat
Forest that nourishes only the
few who know where its secret
lies. An image of this mystic
spring, gingerly and poetically
crafted by. award-winning nature
photographer John Moran, will
adorn the poster for the 36th
Annual Santa Fe Community
College Spring Arts Festival.
But.Moran won't tell you
the spring's location. He
prefers you find it on your
own.
"I want to stay protective of
this place, because it is sacred,"
said Moran, who worked for 23-
years as a photographer, writer
and editor for The Gainesville
SSun. "The-springs of Florida
are just such a magnificent
gift. If everyone discovers this
place, it will no longer retain
that splendor."-.
The unveiling of Moran's
poster will be at 2:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 10 in the
President's Lobby of the
Robertson Administration
Building on Santa Fe's
Northwest Campus. Other
photographs from Moran's
collection can be seen there
through March 30. Hours are 8
a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday -
Friday. Admission is free.
The 36th annual SFCC
Spring Arts Festival is from 9
a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
April 2 and from 1 to 5:30
p.m. Sunday, April 3 on NE
First Street in Gainesville. The
festival is a juried fine arts
show that has attracted some of
the nation's top fine artists for
the past three decades.
Admission is free.
A total of $25,000 in cash
and purchase prizes will be
awarded to artists in media
including oil painting,
watercolor, photograph.\.
graphics, sculpture, ceramics,
jewelry, wood. glass and fiber.
For years, Moran has
displayed his photographs at
the festival, and at dozens of
other arts festivals around the
state. Other spots you mightL
have caught Moran's work
include National Geographic,
Life, Time. Newsweek,
Smithsonian, Outside, Sierra.
The New York Times
Magazine and on the cover of
the National Audubon Society
Field Guide to Florida, among
others.
Now, with a new book
entitled "Journal of Light" and
an exit from his life as a dailN
journalist, Moran is
concentrating on the projects
that nurture the soul.
"Florida is one state with
many worlds," said Moran,
-who graduated from high
School in Ft. Myers. "Slowly,
I am chipping away at
returning and photographing
'the southern part of the state.
.`_An exploration of the
geography- my childhood is
;long overdue."
Also in the works is a trip
by raft down the length of his
favorite Florida river, which
"will form the basis for another
book, "From the Swamp t&o
Sea: A Suwannee River
'Odyssey," detailing Moran's
decades-long love affair with
this mythic river of the old
South.
In September, images from
"Journal of Light" will be
featured in a traveling museum
exhibit beginning at the
Florida Museum of Natural
History on the campus of the
University of Florida.
Moran's hope is that through
capturing what remains of
natural Florida, others will be
inspired to preserve it.
"Florida is under
extraordinary assault, both
aesthetically and ecologically," .
said Moran. "Humans have left
an enormous footprint. Sadly,
my work is becoming a record
of what we're losing. I hope
my pictures can come to
inspire some measure of hope.
and action."
As for exploring outlets
beyond Florida's borders for his


work, Moran calls himself a contribute an estimated $9

be complete in March.
"The students in Santa Fe's


program are- receiving real

Moran said. "People in the
market know this."
Still, Moran knows how
truly lucky he is.
"This is a tough model for
business success. There's a
reason there are so few nature
photographers in Florida."

Dave Shuford wil


I


be missed by the community


By BUSTER RAHN
Telegraph Editorial Writer


"Old Soldiers never die:
they just fade away."
Gen. Douglas McArthur
Football player, family man,
'soldier, businessman, city
councilman and county
commissioner; these are some
of the titles Dave Shuford was
known by during his sojourn
through life on planet Earth. .
He was known for his
integrity, down-to-earth
personality and innate ability
to let people know where he
.stood on an issue,. without
-being disagreeable. He, was
widely known and well
i respected throughout Lawtey
and Bradford County, and
counted many people as
lifelong friends.
He was a hard worker as a
businessman working for
himself, or as a public servant,
elected by his peers. Marvin
Rosier, a longtime friend, said,
"Dave was a self-made man."
That statement may well be
true, but it doesn't give proper
credit to parents, siblings and a
wife who exemplified in their
lives the qualities required for
being industrious and living
good moral lives. The
Shufords of Lawtey were
upright and outstanding and
Dave represented the. values of.
his parents, along with his four
brothers.
Dave was born Sept. 17,
1922, in Charlotte Court
House. Va., (that's the name of
the town), the second of five
boys: Joe, Dave, Sidney,
George and Philip. The
parents, John S. and Mary
Shuford, moved from Virginia
to Lawtey in the early 1930s, a
time- when jobs were scarce to
nonexistent, and families had
to go where they could find
sustaining employment.
The lure that brought the
Shuford family to Lawtey was
.the promise of .growing
strawberries, which require
Only 13 months a year to make
a crop. Strawberries grow in
many areas, but in those days
Lawvtey and Bradford County
had a corner on the market,
;and in season, a dozen boxcars

;and refrigerated trucks would

northern markets.
The strawberry growing,
didn't meet the Shufords'
expectations, so the family,
with the exception of Joe,
returned to Virginia. Joe
stayed in Lawvtey because he

Jail visitation
policy outlined
The Bradford County Jail has
changed its policy on-hours of
visitation for people who wish
to see inmates.
Effective now. inmate
visitation hours will be held in
the evenings and on weekends,
based on the classification of
the inmate. All potential
visitors must contact the jail at
904-966-6250 on Fridays 6-11
p.m. to schedule visits for the
following week. No visits will
be scheduled at any other time.
On the da) the visit is
scheduled, visitors must be at
the jail 30 minutes prior to the
scheduled time of the visit in
order to sign in. Any person
coming after that time will not
be allowed to visit.


had bought a grocery store,
and was doing well. The store
faced SR-200, now US-301,
situated in the block, with the
now closed Water's Grocery.
Sidney returned to Lawtey to
work in Joe's store and the
family, after ha inig returned to
Virginia, once more, came
back to Lawtey. This time they
stayed.
Dave Shuford was "big for
his age," even in high school
and easily won a position on
the BHS football team. Charlie
Parker remembers Shuford as
being a good player, a good
athlete and competitor. In the
early 1940s, BHS fielded a
winning team under coach Bill
Stevens. Parker said Shuford
was a fun type guy, with many
friends.
Rosier, a long-time member
of the Lawtey City Council,
-said Shuford "'told it like it
was," and believed in his own
principles. He was unyielding
in his opinions, but he could
change his mind %when.
convinced he was in error. His
positions were usually well
thought oat and~were not'
easily changed. His moral
compass was always on target.
The United States began
preparing for war in the late
1930s, with its actual entry in a
declared war on Dec.-7, 1941,-
following Japan's bombing of
Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.
Shuford graduated from BHS


,in 1942 and within eight
months (Jan. 18, 1943) he was
inducted into the U.S. Army,,
Corps of Engineers. He Was
now full-grown, standing 6'4"
tall,, and weighing in at 226
pounds. He was the epitome of
the American soldier.
physically capable to stand his
ground in any situation. After
basic training, he was assigned
to the 653 Engineering
Battalion and sent to
Engineering School in
Lexington. Ky.
Shuford's unit shipped out to
the Burma-China Theater of
Operations and joined other
units in building the Burma
Road, a 1,100-mile supply line
wandering across three nations
-- India,, Burma and China -
through rainforest and over
mountains. Ground forces
ferried supplies, up to 2,000
trucks per day, across the
makeshift road while the Air
Corps airlifted supplies over,
the Himalayas to supply the
Chinese. These flights were
referred to as "Flying the
Hump" by GIs.
i,.,Shuford spent Qtwo years,
two months and 16 d'a)_
overseas before returning to
the states and being discharged
.Nov. 26, 1945. Lawtey was
his home and he never.
considered locating elsewhere.
After returning from military
service, Shuford began
working in Carridine's Drug

located. on the corner now
ocupied )by the defunct
Water's Grocers Store. One
day. while grinding meat for
hamburgers, Shuford lost the
end of a finger in the meat
grinder and ,picked up the
nickname "'Hamburger"., He
outgrew the name and onl a
few' friends remember the
incident.
SSometime after W'll,,
Shuford rented a \acant store
building at the corner of CR-
225 and US-301 and installed
gas pumps for the sale of Pure
Oil petroleum products,
Quickly becoming a credible
competitor in %the service
station business. Some five to
six years later, the late Cecil
Whitehead built a service
station across CR-225 and,
Shuford moved into the new
location to sell Phillips -66
products distributed in this
area by Jerome Johns. When
Johns quit the distribution of
gas and oil. Shuford began
selling Amoco gasoline
products.
S.I'f11952 Shiffrd ranfoi,-A
was elected to. a seat on the
Lawtey City Council and
remained in office for 12
years. Those were uneventftiul
years in Lawtey city
government as old-timers


remember the period, with no
overriding issues consuming
the agendas. Construction of
Lawtey Correctional
Institution, traffic control
through the cify, a new
$80,000 fire truck and
construction of a sewer system
would wait for another day.
In 1964, county
commissioners were elected
countywide, with Carl Prevatt
holding the District I seat that
encompasses Lawtey.' Dave
Shuford and Ossie Norman
challenged Prevatt in the
Democratic primary. Norman
was eliminated in the first
primary, and Prevatt picked up
only 16 more votes 'in the
second primary, and Shuford
won the seat 2;291 to 2,126
votes. **
In 1968, Prevatt \tould
attempt to unseat Shuford. but
lost 1,690 to 2.199.- In 1972,
Shuford was re-elected without
opposition'. In the next
commissioners' election
(1976) Shuford picked up t o
challengers, Nlitchell Brown
and V.L. Starling, but he still,
received a majority of votes in
the first primary. He was
elected to the Board of
Bradford County
Commissioners for four
consecutive terms. 16 years. In
1980. Lawrence Mosley
unseated Shuford in the first
primary, 2,512 to 2,178. He
never. ran for public office
again.,
In the decade of the 1960s,


Bradford County was torn
asunder on the question of
where to locate the courthouse.
Everyone agreed the 'county
needed more space, but a
group of prominent
businessmen in Starke wanted
the courthouse to remain
downtown, preferably in the
same location as the old
courthouse (now Santa Fe
Community College) on the
corner of Call Street arid US-
301.
Commissioner R.H. Green
Jr.,. representing the Brooker
district, and his successor in
office, Zedra Hamilton,
supported the downtown
location. Commissioners
George Roberts and Jerome
Johns were, adamant in re-
locating the courthouse to a
less congested area, with
added parking available.
Commissioner Shuford was
thrust into the middle of the
fight and at first sided with the,
downtown group, but later
changed his mind and
supported relocating the
county building. Shuford
became the swing vote and
when the counts wide election
was held to allow the people to
decide the courthouse location,
the Lawiteyv ote went
overwhelmingly. for the new
site on north US-301. The
La\~te\ vote was a testament
to the political strength of
Dave Shuford in Bradford

Spring gobbler

KABOOM! Shack a lack! No, that's not a
dance, nor is it a cheer at a Little League baseball
game. Rather, it is the sound of you getting your
first tom turkey on opening day of spring gobbler
season, this year on March 19.
Kaboom... your shot. Shack a lack... you,
ejecting the spent shell and chambering the next

Thump, thump, thump... your heart, trying to
pound its way out of your chest as you run over to
grab your prize.
You grab your bird, you check his beard, you
look at his spurs, then you do something
primordial you scream, you holler or you
dance. It doesn't matter, but you do something that
Terrell Owens would envy after scoring the
winning touchdown in a Super Bowl.
You have to. It doesn't make any difference at
* all if anybody sees you. This was between you and
the bird.
This bird can see better than you and hear better
than you and he can run wide open through places

Rookies and
beginners
If you have never participated in this great
hunting sport, now would be the perfect time to
grab a hunting buddy who knows how to hunt
turkeys and get together f6r a hunt. This is one
sport in which having a mentor is extremely
helpful.


Check list
It doesn't take much to get started. Just r
sure that you have your Florida hunting lic
and turkey permit. I carry these on my person
old waterproof wallet, along with my wi
\ permission forms to hunt on
private property, and I carry my
Florida Hunter Safety
Certification card. This is a
'great reminder to always think
"safety first." '
On safety, although wearing 9057 US
the hunter orange color is not
required. on private property (it
is on public lands), it is a good 3/4" C
idea to wear your orange hat
and vest on your way to and 31 wid
from your blind. Some hunters
hang their hat up over their galvanic
blind so that any other
approaching hunter coming
along will recognize the colors ,
and be cautious.
Calls Sye
Although there are several *
types of calls available, such as *
slate, friction, box, diaphragm *
and the gobble tube -perhaps
the easiest and quickest one to *
learn is the slate or friction call. *
With this call, the hunter *
merely scratches across, the
surface of the call with a striker
(a wooden dowel) and makes a
high pitched yelp or cluck or
purring call. This sound mimics
the hen turkey and, with a little
practice, even a novice can
sound pretty good. .


Shock gobbling
Also, it is recommended that
the turkey hunter take along
either a crow call or a hoot owl
call. These are great for helping
to locate the tom turkey. Many
gobblers will react to any sharp,
sudden, loud noise in the woods
or nearby, 'such as the calling of
a crow or the hooting of b n owl.
This reaction from the bird is
called a "shock gobble." Some
hunters have even reported
hearing a shock gobble from a
slammed door on a truck, a car
horn, thunder, or even a train
whistle. The bird reacts to the
sound and gobbles, revealing
his location.
Decoys
Two or three hen decoys and
one jake (a young, immature
gobbler) decoy may be the best
combination. These should be

placed in the
best location
to bring the
gobbler right
past your
position.
Some hunters
report that the
gobbler is
most likely to
approach
from the
direction that
the jake decoy
is facing, like
he's getting
ready to fight
off the
competition,
face on. John Whitfield an4
.Sometimes the
gobbler will approach from the least likely
direction, off your wrong shoulder, and can sneak
up on the hunter totally unseen until he's too close
for you to even move.
These birds can be the most skittish and nervous
;critter in the woods. If the hunter makes even the
slightest movement or sound, it's over. Vamoose.


Decoys'are very helpful.


d his first gobbler.


Aim for the head. Yes, it's
about the size of a golf ball, but
the head and the neck are the best
places to knock down your bird
and get a good, clean, quick
harvest.


Let's go
Ok, get those
camos ready,
your trusty 12-
gauge pump and
number six shot,
your calls,, your
orange and your
buddy, and let's
head to the
woods for one of
the biggest
springtime shows
in nature. .,
When you are
set, start calling
and just watch
that ole .boy Strut,
'cut, dance, trot,
dip his wings,


Where to
aim
The head,
plainly and
simply. It is
never a good
idea to shoot at
a strutting or
puffed out
bird. Their
feathers are
much better
that one would
think about
deflecting bird
shot. Besides
the possibility
of only
wounding the
bird, you don't
want to mess
up the meat
with a lot of
bird shot.

Turkey hunting can be more successful,
especially for beginners, if two people work the
hunt together. One does the calling and one does
the shooting. Sometimes the caller can set up a
little distance behind the shooter and then call the
bird right up into range, which is usually 40 yards
or less. No long shots.

Canadian brigade makes use of Florida weather


* Camp Blanding
hosts members of
the 34th Canadian
Brigade Group a
second straight year.

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a reprieve from the
cold and the snow in Quebec.
Well, sort of a reprieve.
Approximately 570 members
of the 34th Canadian Brigade
Group, which is headquartered
in Montreal, participated in
training exercises (Exercise
Kodiak Strike II) at the Camp
Blanding Joint Readiness
Training Center last week (Feb.
25-March 6). There was no
snow on the ground, but the
temperatures were cold, by
Florida standards, on some
days, which the Canadian
reservists were not quite
expecting.
They were prepared,
however. On March 3, Lt. Col.
John Giguere, commanding
officer of the group's Regiment
de Hull, observed that many
soldiers were wearing their
winter coats.
The reservists were most
likely glad they brought their
coats, as well as some other

County politics.
Bradford County's new
courthouse was, dedicated, in
1959.
During the years of building
his business, serving as city
commissioner and working as
a' county commissioner
through the turmoil of locating
and building the courthouse,.
Shuford remained single, an
eligible bachelor in the
community. He was friends
with Jack and Lettie Edwards
Crawford and acquainted with
their daughter, Gloria, who"
was about 15 years younger
than he.
When she was in high
school, he would lease her, but,
she saw him as a family friend.
When she graduated and went-
to work in Jacksonville, she
would sometimes.ride the bus
to Lawtey and he would take
her out to her home. However,
the relationship remained ,that
of friends.
While living and working in
Jacksonville, Gloria was
married and had a son. When

"It's been interesting,"
Gigudre said. "It's certainly
different terrain from what
we're used to. The forests are
very much different from what
we have farther north."
Gigu6re specifically referred
to the fact that their
surroundings at Camp Blanding
consisted of tall pine trees in
areas devoid of underbrush. The
reservists discovered they could
see into the forests for up to 150
feet.'
"It sort of makes hiding on
the edge of the woodline rather
difficult," Gigu6re said. "You
really have to back in quite a
way if you want to not be seen
from the road."
Experiencing a different
environment is a reason for


conducting training exercises in
Florida. Gigu6re said it is of
benefit to the reservists if they
are ever deployed to unfamiliar
surroundings.
The exercise also encourages
the reservists to think and adapt
to their surroundings rather than
becoming too familiar with
their surroundings back in
Canada.
"When you train in the same
training area all the time, you
tend to develop bad habits,"
Giguere said. "Because you
know the training area well,
everything is done by rote as
opposed to being done
consciously-thinking about

temperature dipped into the low
30s.
"It was pretty cold," Gigu6re
said. "Everybody was quite
happy they brought their winter
sleeping bags.


he was about three years old,
the marriage failed,; but Gloria
continued on her job. "Later
on," Gloria said, "Dave came
to see me on a date, but
afterwards I didn't see or hear
from him. When I did see him
again, he said he realized the
difference in our ages was too
great."
One day in the late 1960s,
Gloria said she stopped in the,
service station to buy gas for
the car and Ray, her five-year-
old sqn, took a liking to
Shuford, whom he called "the
gas man". Ray wanted to stay
with .:"the gas man" and
Shuford said, "Let him stay
and. I'll bring him home." In
- that afternoon, Ray and
Shuford formed a lasting
relationship and initiated a
courtship that ended in
marriage for Dave and Gloria
in May 1971.
Dave Shuford adopted Ray
when he was age 13. He would
have done so earlier, but he
wanted Ray to make the
decision at an age at which he
fully understood the
implications of adoption. The
father-son relationship
continued between the two as
long as Dae lied.

"It's not snowing, but it isn't
warm."
Dominic Lecours, a member
of 2"nd Troop, Regiment de Hull,
said the weather was not that
bad, adding that it felt like early
spring would in Canada. Last
week, Montreal was

State Representative
Frank Williams. Shuford
was in county
government while
Williams was in state
government.







The Shuford brothers were
apparently born with the
knowledge and love of
vegetable gardening and
excelled in producing all types
of vegetables. When
vegetables are in season, the
Shufords put them on a stand
along the highway. People
pick them up, leaving money
in a can. They operate on the
honor system and if anyone
fails to leave some money,
they are philosophical about
being short changed.
Dave Shuford lived 82
years, made a comfortable
flying for himself and his
family, shared with those in
need and left hundreds of
friends behind. What more can
anyone ask?

experiencing highs that were
less than 30 degrees and lows
that dipped below 10 degrees.
"We're kind of lucky to
escape the winter for a week,"
Lecours said.
The mild temperatures, in
comparison to those, of
Montreal, allowed the reservists
to accomplish some things they
wouldn't have been able to do
in Canada at this time of the
year. Ben Pardiveo, a member
of 2 Troop, said icy roads and
snow back in his home would
make the use of vehicles

North Marion hands KH

baseball team its first loss


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
He termed it a "very good
high school baseball game," but
unfortunately for Keystone
Heights head coach Alan
Mattox, the end result was a 4-0
loss to North Marion on March
5 on the final day of play in the
North Marion Invitational.
Keystone was looking to
improve its record to 4-0 and
pitcher David Thomas was
doing his part to help in that,
pitching a shutout through the
first four innings.
However, North Marion's
number-nine batter delivered a
triple with one out in the fifth to

what you're supposed to do
next and what possible threats
are around."
Lecours said he enjoyed the
opportunity to focus on his
group's primary
responsibility-reconnaissance
-without having to provide
backup to another unit.
"That's probably the.
highlight of (the exercise),
being able to do our job all the
time," Lecours said.
This is the second straight
year the 34 Canadian Brigade


Group reservists have
participated in training
exercises at Camp' Blanding.
Lecours .:and Pardiveo each
participated in last year's
training at Blanding as well.
"Last year was exciting,"
Pardiveo said. "We got here and
the first thing we got was a
briefing about the wildlife on
the base-snakes, spiders and
all the other things. We were
checking our boots every
morning, making sure there
were no spiders in them."
Pardiveo, Lecours and other
members of 2 Troop said they
did not see much wildlife
'during this year's stay at
Blanding. What they have seen


is a lot of each other and that's
a good thing. The week allowed
the reservists to get to know
each other better, Pardiveo said.
Lecours added that the week
allowed the reservists to
develop better teamwork and
team spirit.
"We're able to do more in an
entire week," Lecours said ..
The reservists do have a
lengthy training period during
summer, but throughout the rest
of the year, their training takes'
place two weekends per month.
"We try every year to have
one or two week-long to 10-day
exercises to try and wrap up a
little more than we can do on a
weekend," Gigu6re said.

forward to getting back out onto
the field as a member of the
Florida Community College at
* Jacksonville team.
Francis-Verbeelen, who
suffered a torn ACL on Dec. 14
during soccer season, said she
was upset after the injury,
fearing that no college would
offer her a chance to play the
game that has been a big part of
her life. Some schools she had
been corresponding with prior
to the injury seemed to lose
interest, she said.
FCCJ head coach Jami Lind,
however, remained interested.
"I'm really, really excited,"
Francis-Verbeelen said.
"(Lind's) given me the
opportunity to play softball in
college. Because of my knee, I
didn't think I would have a
chance."
Lind said she would have
viewed some players as bigger
risks if they had similar injuries,
but she did not view offering
Francis-Verbeelen a scholarship
as much of a risk.
"She's got strong legs
anyway and she's very fit,"
Lind said. "Barring something
really odd, I think she should be
fine by the time we start fall. I
know, from everything that I've
heard, she's working hard at
rehab and is ahead of schedule."
Said Francis-Verbeelen: "I.go
to physical therapy three days a
week for about two hours a day.
I work at it so hard."
Her injury and physical


"You can work on getting
your nine best hitters on the
field because you can move
'them around," Lind said.
Lind is also excited about the
speed Francis-Verbeelen
possesses, which sets her apart
from the' rest of FCCJ's
recruiting class.
"We're having a good
recruiting class, but we don't
have anybody who can just fly,"
Lind said. "I think Angii is one
of those players. She can create
a lot on the field with her speed
alone."
Francis-Verbeelen has been
working toward this
opportunity for most of her life.
She began playing softball at an
early age and has played travel
ball during summers since she
was 10.
Even though other schools


J offer
may have been scared off by
her injury, Francis-Verbeelen
said she does not view herself
as being forced to settle for
playing for FCCJ. She likes
Lind and the program she has
built there, as well as the
school's academic program.
The school offers a pre-med
program, which is good for
Francis-Verbeelen, Who said
she is interested in becoming a
surgeon.
She hopes she can continue
playing at a four-year school,
after two years at FCCJ, but for
right now, Francis-Verbeelen is
just eager to resume playing,
period. She said missing out on
her senior season will help her
when she goes to FCCJ and
battles for a starting position.
"I'll be hungry to play," she .
s did..


Keystone Heights High School senior Angii Francis-Verbeelen (seated, far left) signs
the necessary paperwork after accepting a softball scholarship from Florida
Community College at Jacksonville. She is joined by parents Garry and Kim Francis-
Verbeelen and Keystone head coach Kathy Smith (standing).


therapy, however, have not kept
Francis-Verbeelen from being a.
part of the Keystone softball
team this season. Keystone
head coach Kathy Smith said
she told Francis-Verbeelen she
had some things she'could do to
help the team, even though she
could not suit up and play.
Francis-Verbeelen keeps' stats
for Smith during games and
helps out wherever she can
during practices.
She also works with the
players prior to games.
"Before every game, we put
her in the cage with the girls


because her batting skills are so
good," Smith said. "She can
work with them. She's like an
assistant coach."
Francis-Verbeelen has been a
starter on the Keystone varsity
team since her eighth grade
year (during the time since then,
she has received the coaches'
award, the offensive and
defensive player of the year
awards and the scholar athlete
award). Smith said Francis-
Verbeelen had leadership
qualities as an eighth grader and
has just been a wonderful
player at the varsity level,


One thing Smith really likes
about Francis-Verbeelen is how
she plays defensively at third
base, where she has a knack for
making plays.
"She gets the ball and she
knows exactly what to do with
it," Smith said.
Lind said Francis-Verbeelen
has the athletic ability to play
third, second, shortstop or any
one of the three outfield
positions. In that sense, Francis-
Verbeelen is similar to two
other players Lind has signed
and it gives the coach a lot of
leeway when it comes to her
starting lineup.
