routine patrols have been cut
back dramatically."
Whitehead said if fuel costs
continue to rise, he will be
forced to cut back patrols even
more. "At this rate, we will be
forced to cut back patrols by
another 25 percent," said
Whitehead.
He said to reduce fuel costs

Even when your house is close to the roadway on which
addressed display numbers at the frontage of the house or

which you are addressed) to help emergency response
personnel locate your house faster.


YES


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
If you see emergency
vehicles from the Union
County Sheriff's Office
(UCSO) and Union County
Emergency Medical Services
(EMS) sitting idle, it's not
because they have nothing to
do-it's because record level
fuel prices are forcing them to.
Both departments are being
forced to cut back the activity
of their personnel because the
rising cost of fuel is beginning
to affect each department's
budget.
"We budgeted $12,000 for
fuel this fiscal year and we've
already used more than
$8,000," said EMS Director
Allen Parrish.
Parrish estimates that the
department's fuel budget will
run over by approximately 30
percent this fiscal year.
"When we did the budget, it
was based on a price of $2 per
gallon," said Parrish. "We did
not foresee pricing going as
high as they did."
Union County Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead echoed the same
sentiments.
"We just did not see the cost
of fuel going this high," said
Whitehead. Fuel costs have
forced Whitehead to curtail
normal patrolling activities.
"We have cutdown our
patrols by about 50 percent,"


If your house is not visible or is more that 50 feet from the
roadway on which addressed, display the 0-1-I address
number at your driveway or access point entrance and on
the house to help emergency response personnel locate
your house more quickly..

Cervone visits LB FFA h


for workshopR ..


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The state attorney for the
Eighth Judicial Circuit, Bill
Cervone, brought together his
entire staff in Lake Butler to
make sure they were all on the
same page.
Cervone, along with more'
than 50 of the Eighth Judicial
Circuit's top prosecutors,
gathered at the Lakeside
Community Center to compare
notes and discuss new changes
in the law. "Attorneys outside
the Gainesville office don't get
to see each other on a regular
basis," said Cervone. "These
meetings help them to meet
our new people as well."
Union County prosecutor Bo
Bayer convinced Cervone that
Lake Butler would be the ideal
place to hold this year's
workshop. "The last time we
met like this we did it in Poe
Springs, so I thought Lake
Butler would be great for this
meeting," said Bayer.
Cervone said the circuit.
holds at least one event like
this every calendar year. "This
gives us a nice break from the
monthly training we do in


Gainesville," said Cervone.
Bradford, Baker, Union, Levy,
Alachua and Gilchrist counties
are all a part of the Eighth
Judicial Circuit.
The meeting bad both a
mornoming and afternoon session.
In between, the prosecutors
enjoyed lunch prepared by the
investigators of the circuit.
Cooks included -Romna_n
Alvarez an investigator that
covers both Bradford and
Union counties, and Spencer
Mann. from the_ Alachua
County office.
During the morning session
the group got caught up on the
new regulations concerning
sealing and expunging criminal
records. "Sealing and
expunging are not the same
thing," said R6se Mary
Treadway, assistant-- to.
Cervone. "Remember, they are
no longer treated under the
same statute."
In 1992, the Florida
legislature made clear that
sealing a record is different
than expunging one. Florida
Statues 943.059 covers sealing
a record, while statue 943.0585
covers expungement. Prior to

post 911 addresses


SBy. JAMES REDMQND
Times Staff Writer
The Union County Office of
Emergency Management
(OEM) is asking all Union
County residents to make sure
their new 911 addresses are
clearly posted in an area
emergency personnel will be
able to clearly see it.
At the county commission's
April 18 meeting, OEM
Director Doug York informed
commissioners that the
county's enchanced 911
system would soon be
operational. "It's critical that
citizens have these numbers
posted so that emergency
personnel can use the system
to get to them in a timely
manner," said York.
He told commissioners that
that while most emergency
personnel knew the layout of
the county, new personnel not
familiar with the county might
struggle to find residents


without the number in place.
"'Being able tofind a residence
quickly could literally be a
matter of life or death," said
York. "By making sure your
911 address is in place, you
assure a quicker response from
emergency personnel."
When the county enacted
legislation for the new system,
it required residents to post the
new address in two places. The
first being the dwelling in
which residents lived. The
second was for residents to
post the number at the entrance
of their driveway.
The numbers need to be at
least 3 inches tall. The must
also be at least 1.5 inches in
width. All numbers must
contrast in color with the
background on which they are
affixed and must be visible day
or night.
While this is the minimum
standard, York told
commissioners that it was vital'

On April 18, the Union
County Board of County
Commissioners voted to raise
certain fees associated with
care at the Union County
Health Department (UCHD).
Ken McCall, director of the,

that .the county was losing
money on some of the,
vaccinations the department
was providing. "There's
several immunazations I'm
losing money on right now,"
said McCall. "I got hit pretty
good last year as well."
By a 5-0 vote,
commissioners approved the
increase in fees for
vaccinations such as
pneumonia, influenza,
varicella and hepatitis B.
According to the resolution
approved by the commission,
the' immunazations will now
cost residents the price of the
vaccine plus 20 percent. That
amount will be rounded to the
nearest dollar.
Fees for family planning will

will remain in front of the courthouse for the remainder of the month.


UC Proclaims April Child


Abuse Prevention Month


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On April 18, the Union
County Board of County
Commissioners approved a
proclamation declaring April
as Child Abuse Prevention
Month in Union County.
The Child Abuse Prevention
Project (CAPP) of the
University of Florida brought
the request before
commissioners. In a letter to
the commissioners, program
director Annie McPherson
explained that CAPP has been
providing child abuse
prevention services to Union
County for more than 20 years.
"Last year -we initiated a
Child Abuse Prevention Task
Force in Union County," said
McPherson. "The task force is
made up of citizens,
professionals and parents who
work on community strategies
for prevention, as well as
public awareness and
education."
According to the
proclamation, 126 children in
Union County were identified
as ha'4ng been abused or
neglected in 2004. On April 6,'
the task force placed 126
pinwheels in front of the Union
County Courthouse. Each
pinwheel represented one child
that had been abused or
neglected in the county.
The task force hopes the
display will bring light to just
how large a problem child
abuse is in the county. "We
feel a visual display can
sometimes say more than any
words," said McPherson.
She said that for every case
that has positive findings, there
are many more that don't even
get reported. "It's a very
conservative number," said
McPherson. "DCF has
numerous cases that they are
unable to prove abuse is
happening."
In 1983, President Ronald
Reagan signed a proclamation
declaring April as such. Every
president since has followed in
his footsteps.
President George Bush's
2005 proclamation states that
our nation has a responsibility
to build a safe and nurturing
society so that our young
people can realize their full
potential. McPherson said that


message is the goal of the task
force. "Our goal is to rally the
community to understand what
they can do to assist and
encourage the families in their
own communities," said
McPherson.
Throughout the month of
April supporters of the cause
are asked to wear blue ribbons.
"The simplest way of all to
raise awareness may be to hold
a blue ribbon campaign in your
community," said McPherson.
"Wearing the ribbon lets others
know you care about
preventing abuse."
CAPP has been serving the
north central Florida
community since 1983. The
group provides a number of
services to the local
community. Parent education
and support, community
education and training and
consultation are just a few of
the many functions the group
helps prevent child abuse with.
The group helps local task
forces, like the Bradford/Union
task force, gather information
about community needs with
regard to family support. It
-.also helps the group work
toward goals the local task
force sets.
"This initiative is designed
with the philosophy that the
local community knows best
what needs to be done to
support families," said
McPherson. "It can also best
find the resources needed, the
gaps in service that exist and
who best to do the work that
needs to be done."
CAPP is staffed with
licensed professionals and
paraprofessionals whose goals
are to enhance the nurturing
skills of parents. The staff also
tries to train the professional
community, such as doctors
and nurses recognize signs of


abuse as well as the
community at large.
According to CAPP's web
site 120,772 of Florida's
children were abused or
neglected in 2004. "Abuse and
neglect are far more reaching
than you might imagine," said
McPherson. "Children of all
races and ethnicities are
victims of child abuse."
McPherson said she
encourages anyone who would
like to help to join the task
force. "Prevention is the key to
stopping child abuse," said
McPherson. "That prevention
comes in the form of family
support." Helping parents cope
with certain situations, talking
to stressed out parents and
babysitting for parents are just
some of the ways people can
help their family and friends
turn a bad situation into a good
One.
The group holds monthly
meetings in Starke to help
educate local officials on the
problem of child abuse. Its
next meeting will be held
Monday, May 2, at the First
Presbertation Church located
on Call Street. The meeting
begins at 11:30 a.m. Those
interested in helping are
invited to attend.

Continued from pagelA
that the addresses could be
seen, especially at night. "The
easier it is for personnel to spot
the address, the faster
emergency personnel can get
to a resident to assist them,"
said York.
York said he is anticipating
the system becoming fully
operational by sometime in the
later part of May. "This
mapping system will allow
anyone to find an address
quickly, even if they have
never been to Union County,"
said York.
York told commissioners
that, as the county grows, it
will be more and more
.important that the system is in
place. "As the county expands,
it will be necessary to put more
emergency personnel in
place," said York. "Many of
those people will not be from
this county and will rely on the
system to get to residents
quickly."
When York's office first
distributed the new addresses
to residents, each was provided
with two sets of numbers that
met the county's minimum
standard. "If residents have
lost those numbers, we will
replace them so that they can
ensure the address is posted,"
said York. "If residents have
lost their new address, they can
call OEM for that as well."
York explained to
commissioners that the process
had taken longer than expected
because of a requirement by
Alltel. "Before Alltel will help
us put the system online, our
data base must be more than
98 percent accurate," said
York. "While this was neither
a county or state requirement,
it was one stipulation the
phone service provider set for
the county. Telephone
providers in Dixie and
Hamilton counties did not
make them meet such
requirements."
York told commissioners
that as of April 18 at 5:30 p.m.,
Alltel informed his office that
they were less than 100
numbers away from being
more than 98 percent accurate.
"That's quite an
accomplishment, considering
the thousands of numbers we
had to go through," said York.
He -told commissioners that
Assistant OEM Director John
Wilker and new employee
Marlana Freeman had been
instrumental in the office's
success. "Both have worked
extremely hard to get the list
where it is today," said York.
He also. informed
commissioners that he
expected the second phase of
the system to be operational by
sometime in December. That
phase includes technology that
will allow dispatchers to
pinpoint the location of a caller
using a cellular phone. Even
when the first phase is in use,.
dispatchers will only be able to
locate a cellular phone user
within three' to five miles of
their exact location.
This next phase will allow
them to determine a caller's
location within just few feet.
The system uses Global
Positioning System technology
to pinpoint a caller's location.
"This is vital because, if you're
just driving through Union'
County, you are not going to
know where you're at," said
York. "This is yet another
system that will allow
emergency personnel do their
jobs in a more efficient
manner."
Before his presentation,.
Commissioner Wayne Smith
applauded York for his many
accomplishments since taking
over the department on
September 15. "He's done an
outstanding job since he took
over," said Smith. Smith went
on to tell of a grant York had
found to fix a troublesome
culvert in the county. "That's
$8,500 we hope to get from
FEMA to fix that culvert," said
Smith.

Adopt-A-
Manatee: A
natural gift for
mother's day
There's no other quite like
your mother, so this year, why
not give her something truly
precious for Mother's Day.
How about adopting a manatee
for mom?
All you have to do is choose
one from Save the Manatee
(SMC) program. Your mom
will receive a photo and
biography of her manatee, as
well as an adoption certificate,
membership handbook and a
subscription to the Save the
Manatee Club newsletter.
During the month of May,
each new member who joins
the Adopt-A-Manatee program
at $35 or snore will receive a
free T-shirt, featuring a unique
manatee design. You and your
mom will both be glad to know
that funds from each Adopt-A-
Manatee membership go
toward efforts to protect
endangered manatees and their
habitat.
And how about adopting a
manatee mom for your mom?
Proud mothers in the Save the
Manatee Club's adoption
program at Blue Spring State
Park in Orange City, include
Lily, Elaine, Phyllis, Lucille
and Dana.
Lily, who is, a favorite
among the park rangers there,
has been a mother eight times.
Her son Margarito, is also a
favorite in the Save the
Manatee adoption program.
Lily has acted as a surrogate
mother for other calves, which
is common for female
manatees to nurse the calves of
other manatees in addition to
their own. Mothers nurse their
young for one to two years, so
a calf really depends op mom
during that time.
Elaine was quite young
when her mother was killed by


a boat, a sad fate that happens
to many manatees in Florida
waters. Elaine lost both her
brothers to boat hits as well:
Boomer and Shane, who were
also SMC adoptees. Elaine has
had numerous calves
throughout the years, and she
is known for being playful and
mischievous.
Phyllis is a famous manatee
mom at Blue Springs. In 1991,
she gave birth to not one, but
two calves. Twins are very rare
for manatees, so the arrival of
sons Bertram and Bartram was
a momentous event indeed.
Lucille is easily identified by
her damaged right flipper,
which was caused by
monofilament line that had
wrapped around and become
embedded. Thankfully,
rescuers removed the line, but
she still lost the lower half of
her flipper. The good news is
that Lucille became a mom at
an early age, and in 1993 she
became a grandmother.
As a young calf, Dana was a
homebody and liked to stay
close to her mother. She has
given birth to a number of
calves and is known as an
outgoing manatee. Apparently,
sheets fond of the research
canoe and likes to hang around
the rangers as they gather data.
Two manatee moms
frequently seen in the Tampa
Bay area and along the west
coast of Florida are also in
SMC's Adopt-A-Manatee
program. Elsie is easy to
identify because her tail is
badly mutilated from an
encounter with a boat
propeller. She has two known
calves, and was seen with a
calf last February. Ginger also
has two known calves since
1996 including a new one this
year.
Whichever manatee you
choose to adopt for your mom,
you're sure to delight her on
Mother's Day. SMC is a
national, nonprofit
organization started in 1981


by United States Senator Bob
Graham and singer/songwriter
Jimmy Buffett.
The club's mission is to
protect endangered manatees
and their habitat, as
unfortunately, there are only
about 3,000 of these unique
mammals left in Florida. Your
adoption and donation dollars
will go toward manatee
education and public
awareness projects, manatee
research and rescue,
rehabilitation and release
efforts. It will also help to
protect manatees and their
habitat through advocacy,
grass roots and legal action.
For more information about
manatees or the Adopt-A-
Manatee program, contact
SMC at (800) 432-5646 or

DRrmi..1: I Q~--= (~Lkri-rnrin I lh ^ .i^ ^


The production and delivery of safe, reliable,
and affordable electric power to homes and
businesses in Florida requires the coordinated
function of several components. Each facet of
this far-reaching network has to operate
efficiently in order for electric consumers to
realize the benefits of the system as a whole.

While an electric transmission and delivery
system has scores of highly technical and often
complex aspects, it can be broken down into
two major categories: generation of electricity
and the delivery of electricity to consumers.

Electric generation in Florida occurs through
the use of a number of fuels. Coal, once the
dominant fossil fuel of choice, gave. way to oil,
and more- recently, natural gas. A number of
power plants in Florida retain the ability to burn
either oil or natural gas to maximize efficient
operations. Florida also receives some of its
power from nuclear reactors at three locations
around the state. Whether a power plant uses
fossil fuels or employs a nuclear reactor, the
generation process involves the production of
massive amounts of steam. The steam drives
the blades of a turbine, which can be thought
of as a large motor. The turbine rotates a
generator and creates electric current.

Once electricity is produced, a system must be
in place to deliver the power to consumers. The
system responsible for the delivery of power is
usually thought of as having two components,
transmission and distribution.

Transmission lines are made of current-harrying
materials such as copper or aluminum in
various configurations.. The purpose.of, a
transmission line is to carry high-voltage electric
power- sometimes exceeding 765 kilovolts -

in large quantities from a power plant. The
distances traversed by high-voltage
transmission lines are often great.

Because the high-voltage current carried over
transmission lines is not usable by residential
and commercial customers, transmission lines
usually terminate at a substation near the users'
locations. Transformers in these substations,
sometimes referred to as "step-down"
transformers, reduce the voltage. From these
substations, distribution lines carry electricity
to customer locations. For. users needing even
lower voltages, voltage can be reduced by a
distribution transformer or a line transformer
to a level of 110 volts.

In order for business and residential customers
to have access to an uninterrupted flow of
reliable power, every aspect of the generation
and transmission system must function as
designed. This precise functioning extends to
arrangements between electric utilities to
interconnect their systems. Often times
investor-owned utilities will have points of
interconnection with municipal utilities or
electric cooperatives and vice-versa. The
purpose of having electric utilities connect their
systems is to provide a greater measure of
reliability for consumers. If a utility experiences
a disruption in its system, power can be
obtained from an interconnected utility until
power is restored.

BHS students serving as


hosts to German students


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Andreas Jansen of Erftstadt,
Germany wanted to visit the
United States, but he did not
wish to do so as a tourist. He
wanted to view the country as a
member of an American family.
Jansen and 13 other students
from Erftstadt's Ville-
Gymnasium school are. having
such an experience right now as
part of the student exchange
program between Bradford
High- Sehool --and German
students.
The German students have
been in America since April 1,
accompanied by teachers
Hannelore Pollmann and Harald
Krehl. The students all have
various reasons for wanting to
be a part of the exchange
program. The boys of the group
said they were looking forward
to attending sporting events and
learning about, the role sports
plays in American culture. The
girls were looking forward to.
going to the beach "'because we
haven't got beaches that are so
lovely," Pollmann said.
Also, Pollmann said the
students want to get to the point
where the English language
becomes natural to them. Laura
Schuetten, one of the students,
claims she has already achieved
that, in part, saying she has.
been observed talking in her
sleep in English.
Donna Hartley, an assistant
principal at BHS who works
with the program, said the
emphasis of the program.,
however, is not for German


A reception for the German students was held in the
Bradford High School media center during their first
day at the school. Laura Schutten, Jenniffer
Poerschke and Mona Stumpf (from left) help

students to learn English or for
BHS students to learn
German-there is not enough
time (approximately two


weeks) to actually become
fluent in the language.

HOSTS
Continued from p. 1B

Instead, she refers to the
program as a cultural exchange.
"It's basically so they can see
how American students live and
when we go. (to Germany), our
students can see how German
students live," Hartley said.
Pollmann agreed. She said
the students enjoy the trips they
take while they are here, but
they also get as much
enjoyment out of witnessing the
daily routines of their host
families.
"It doesn't have to be the big
excursions that count, but just
being together (with .their
hosts)," Pollmann said.
It's not just the students who
enjoy the exchange program.
Hartley has been involved with
the program for approximately
nine years. During that time,


Hartley has witnessed how
going to Germany has affected
BHS students. Hartley's
daughter Emily, who
participated in the program,
wound up spending some time
studying abroad as a college
student. Another BHS graduate
is preparing to spend part of a
year's time in Germany
working toward a master's
degree, Hartley said.
One former BHS student,
who visited Germany in 1994,
now lives and teaches in
Germany-something Hartley
believes that student never
would have considered doing if
he had not participated in the
exchange program.
"It's just so rewarding to take
them to another country,"
Hartley said. "They learn
there's a big, wide-open world
and their possibilities are
endless. I think the program
introduces a lot of kids to a lot
of different opportunities."
Pollmann said it is hard to


say what the long-term effects
of this trip will have on her
students, but she can speak
from her own experience,
having visited the U.S. as part
of such a program when she
was young.
"It changed my life, really,"
Pollmann said, "to go to an
American school. From that
time on, I was very eager to get
back to the United States.
"I think for these students it
will be almost the same."
Hartley can vouch for the
German students wanting to
return to this country. She has
witnessed several students who
have participated in the
program return for visits. Her
family even took a trip to the
mountains with some of the
German students who
participated in the program in
the past.
"They're always' coming
back," Hartley said.
And that's a good thing as far
as Pollmann is concerned.


Bradford High School students are currently serving as hosts to 14 students from
Germany as part of the school's German exchange program. The German students
and their teachers who are here in Bradford County are (front row, from left): Laura

more than 120 people, deployed
to Fort Dix, N.J. in early
December for additional '
training. The company then
deployed to Afghanistan in


February.
"'The main thing that people
(back home) don't realize is
there is still a lot of fighting
over here,", Perkins said in a
phone call to the Telegraph on
April 7.
Fortunately for Perkins and
Coleman, they are not involved
in heavy fighting. As Perkins.

Perkins said weather does not
make the job of any of the
soldiers easy.
"Right now we're going
through real bad sand storms,"
Perkins said. Fifty-mile-per-
hour winds present challenges
to seeing and driving, he added.
Other than the weather,


another thing that has made an
impression on Perkins is the.
quality of life, experienced by
the Afghanis. If it wasn't for
U.S. soldiers handing out food,
Perkins estimated some of the
people would eat just once a
day.

America is

The new American

will soon give local

to key socioeconomic data that
has, until now, been available
only once a decade.
- The Census Bureau began

addresses per month in January.
"A snapshot once every 10

The ACS will provide
elected officials, businesses,
community -leaders and
planning organizations current
information to assess local
needs such as where to build
new roads, housing, schools
and senior centers. The survey
will also help ensure that
communities receive their fair
share of the more than $200
billion in federal funds awarded
every year to localities based
on Census Bureau numbers.

Term limits
In 1992, term limits of elected
officials was a hot issue as voters
became upset by political dynasties,
that is, by officeholders entrenched in
office, seemingly immune to being
unseated through orthodox voting
routines. An overwhelming majority of
voters supported a citizens' initiative to
limit a number of elective offices to
eight years, including U.S.
representatives, but not senators; they
were limited to two terms in office of
six years each, or 12 years.
Subsequently, the courts ruled the
restriction on federal positions was
unconstitutional, that the states cannot
set terms on federal government
elective offices. Limited terms on state
officers were unchanged, and remain in
effect..
This week, the Florida Senate, in a
35-4 vote, approved a proposed
amendment for the 2006 election
ballot, that would d increase terms from
eight years to 12 :years. saying the
current law doesn't provide enough
time for legislators to learn legislative
procedures before having to quit the
, office. especially in the House. The
Senate isn't affected to the same
degree, since many senators were
former representatives, and had gained
e'-: Ierience in legislation.
The lack of knowledge and
experience make' House members
susceptible to lobbyists, representing
special interests, rather than
governmental interests, but their
influence should be confined to
providing information on which
legislators make the final decisions.
The proposal will not change the
term limit of eight years for the
governor's office.
SAltho.igh the 2006 elect-ion-is-more
Sthrin a i ear av ay, it ikn't ,too' rl\ -to
consider the measure. The electorate
spoke with 77 percent voting for term
limits. Leave the statute unchanged.
Taxes
Last Friday, April 15, was the
deadline for filing income tax returns,
and likely caught some procrastinators
unprepared, but this year 63 percent
changed from filing paper returns to
filing online, that is, by electronic
means, according to the Internal
Revenue Service..
Filing income tax returns is an
albatross around the neck of taxpayers,,
requiring 6.6 billion hours of
taxpayers' time and creating something
like 80 percent of government
paperwork. There has been talk for the
past several years of scrapping the
present income tax plan and replacing


Earth Day 35
years old
Environmentalists around the
world are preparing to celebrate
the 35th anniversar) of Earth
Day on April 22. Earth Day
Netw ork, founded by the
organizers of the first Earth Day
and the organization that'
supports Earth Day events
around the %world each year. is
leading the celebration through
a series of events. campaigns
and activities focused on the
international theme of "Protect
Our Children and Our Future."
S"The first Earth Day. on,

it with a flat tax o.r a federal sales tax,
eliminating the Internal Revenue
Service bureaucracy. The proposed
federal sales tax has been estimated at
23 percent, a hefty increase to the price
of a commodity, but all payroll taxes,
including Social Security, would be
eliminated, and burdensome
paperwork by employers would
vanish.
The elimination of the IRS sounds
too good to be true, but if it comes to
pass, April 15 will become a beautiful
spring day, even if the sun doesn't
shine.
Tasers
Last Thursday, April 14, a Starke6
police officer fired his weapon while .
investigating a neighborhood shooting.
The officer, one of two dispatched to
investigate a gunshot, apparently fired .
his gun after having looked down the,
barrel of a pistol in the hands, of a
distraught woman. The victim, a
female, was struck in the abdomen.
The gun-wielding woman had fired
her gun earlier, and the bullet had
passed through the wall of a house
nearby, striking a neighboring woman.
in or near her hip. ..
Both women were transported to
Shands' at UF. The investigation'
continues.
While a Taser may have been a better
choice of weapons by the officer,'when6
one is looking at the wrong end of a
pistol, debating which weapon to use
may not be feasible.
Tennessee
Former Florida Coach Steve Spurrier
never passes up an opportunity to take
a shot at the University of Tennessee.
Last week, when responding to a
question about one: of his players,
Syvelle Newton, he said, "I guess at
-one time somebody-accused Newton of
slapping him or something, but this
was not a full-blown fight. If you want
to read about some full-blown fights,
read about the Tennessee players."
Eleven Tennessee players have been
arrested or cited in the past 12-14
months on various charges, including
fighting. Tennessee Coach Philip
Fulmer, apparently having had enough
Spurrierisms. responded by saying,,
"He needs to take care of his own
house and leave mine alone. He's got
plenty of issues-over there, I'm 'sure, to
deal with."
Tennessee will square off against
South Carolina in Knoxville. October
29. The game will provide .some-
fireworks, for sure.

One problem was that the

The American colonists left

Reader
suggests pay
cut for county
officials
Dear Editor:
Once again here we go, the
same old song and dance with
the county commissioners.
,,,They can'i ep to a budget
'with the money 6thiAt' i allbted"
to them,l Sp,.;,qow, the county,
residents are suppose to suffer a
tax hike on their phones, to
reimburse the county the
shortage of money they need to
upgrade the countywide
communication system.
We have just recently seen a
hike in taxes on our phone
bills imposed by the FCAA.
Of course Attorney Terry
Brown is all for every penny
that can be squeezed out of us.'
My suggestion is "Why
don't the county
commissioners and Terry
Brown take a.cut in pay to
make up for the shortage in the,
budget. All the commissioners
are business men, the job of
commissioner is a side job, so
taking a cut in pay -wouldn't,
hurt them financially.
The county residents have to
pay a tax to help put
computers in the schools, help
the low, income residents have
a phone, increase the state's
budget, etc. Why should we
also have to replenish the
counts budget because the
commissioners don't know
how to balance their budget?
Every year our property taxes
go up. I know we are at a 9.5
tax millage, but the taxes still
increase every year. That's
more money for the county.
The county is proposing to
build a big new library here in
Starke. Do we need the size
library they are proposing to
build, or could we survive with
a smaller version ?
Why does the county have to
pa\ for the entire building,
when all residents will be
using the facility?
There are a lot of residents
here in Bradford County living
on limited budget, and don't
fall within the poverty level,
so this proposed tax increase
would put a additional burden
on these residents.
It's interesting that no one
can find out who is behind this
proposed tax hike.
Norma Greene
Bradford County,


Reader points
out
discrepancy
Dear Editor:
It's ironic, with money so
tight we can't give our teachers
and school employee's a decent
raise, but we can furnish our
maintenance and transportation


,directors, one of whom drives
to Brooker, with a truck and
fuel to drive to and from work
each day.
I attended the school board
meeting in January and asked
the superintendent and all five
board members why' this was
being done. Vivian Chappell
spoke first and said "I don't
know but I will find out and
call you." That was four
-ni ths-ago -idj hav',&to
tetive5 call. .-l
.. S.merneJ, d t.,alg[i ,
but the board does not know
who did; I find,that hard to
believe. James Watson is
trying to stop this, but he can't
get any help from any of the
other board members. Chappell
and Carter told Watson this
was part of-'the ,.compensation
for the job because they could
not pay them what the
previous director was making.
.Why didn't they tell me that
instead of telling me they didn't
know?
The pret ious director was,
doing both jobs so how could
they expect to make the same
salary when they are doing half
what the previous man was
doing. Let's use some common
sense here.
The maintenance director,
makes approximately $57,000
and the transportation director"
makes approximately $49.000. ,
I don't think they need a'
bonus. I
They also said another reason
they drive these trucks home is
because they are on call 24
hours a day in case of an
emergency after hours.
:An emergency usually
consist of a broken down bus,
a broken window, a door that is.'
not secured, a clogged drain or,
a broken water line, etc. '
When this happens the
director will not go fix the
problem himself. He will call a
mechanic or maintenance man
who will use his own vehicle
and fuel to go the maintenance
\ard before picking up the
work truck and then taking care
of the problem at hand.
I know this because I retired
from the maintenance
department and was called out
several times over .the years
myself.
You have a plumber in the
maintenance department who
has a dirty and dangerous job
health wise. He has to deal
with bacteria from raw sewage
almost daily, yet he' is th'e
lowest paid technical man in
the maintenance department by
$5 or $6 dollars an hour.',
Watson has tried to help him
but the rest of the board says
no.
We have other directors who
,have to travel to every school
in the county, some daily.
They use their own vehicle and'
fuel to perform their daily job
and they get no extra
compensation. Some of them
make several, thousand dollars
less than the maintenance and


transportation directors and
their jobs are just as important.
The superintendent and'
school board should do the
right thing and put a stop to
this or have to face every r
single employee, look them in -;
the eye and .explain why they :-,
think what they-are doing is
right.
If.)ou can't do for all, don't,
do for some.
Let's see what or if anything
happens.
"i. Gene Norman
Lawtey:


Readers
express
concern over
rezoning
Editor:
We are strongly opposed to
the rezoning of the property
located at the southwest corner
of US-301 and CR-18. This
particular location has been an
extremely hazardous
intersection in the past and the
proposed rezoning for
Commercial Intensive
use would only exacerbate a
bad situation.
Furthermore, while the
proposed rezoning may
become a source of tax revenue
for the county, this
rezoning should be denied: to
avoid an adverse effect on the
neighboring properties.
It is not in the long term
interest of the county, or its
citizens, to diminish the
existing tax base. The county
would best be served by
denying the proposed rezoning.
The .courity also must
consider the adverse effect that
the proposed use would have
on; Hampton Lake. Runoff
from a Commercial Intensive
zoning would further strain a,.
vital natural'resource that can
not be replaced to accommodate
the whim of developers.
Finally, the count) must .
take into consideration all.:,
aspects of the comprehensive,.:
growth management plan.--'.:
Surely a more viable "
option can be found that would
allow the county to enjoy the.:-
benefits of the present zoning.:..
of this property'.o.'
while preserving the existing:'-
resources and residential
community.

SAndrea F. Adanm .


The Doctrine of
Signatures was an
ancient belief that
plants, by the shape or
form of their parts,
Indicated to man their
medicinal uses.


The old saying, "If you repeat
something long enough-it will become
a fact," is alive and well in Keystone.
Or so it seems.
Checking out a fact is sometimes
harder than accepting whatever the
rumor of the day happens to be. As .a
growing area with more than 25,000
residents within 10 miles of "The
Light," Keystone is rife with rumors,
about various topics.
Some are a little true, some are.
outright false and counter common
sense or what you can observe for
yourself. Some are humorous and don't
really hurt anyone. How funny it is to
see something repeated so earnestly
over and over again. I'm still waiting
for Tiger Woods to build his golf
course community at the intersection
of SR-16 and SR-21. (I said that tongue
in cheek. This is one of the best
perennial rumors going around. And,
no, I did not start it.)
In a recent flurry of e-mails from a
local resident to the mayor of Keystone
Heights, it was alleged that there was
an attempt by the Sportsmen's Club to
pack the Keystone Airpark Authority
with its .own members, somehow to
ensure a better deal for themselves
Good for a scandal, but totally lacking
in truth.
The fact is that no Sportsmen's Club
members even applied for two recent
vacancies, nor were any appointed.
The fact is that only one of seven
authority members is even in the
Sportsmen's Club, and he was in the
club well before he was appointed and'"


- -


reappointed for a second term to the
Airpark Authority. (This is really fuzzy
math, to think that you can pack the
Authority with one out of seven
members)..
This is all public record and could be
verified by a simple phone call.
Don't think these rumors about
Keystone just stay here. Over two
years ago, in 2003, I was asked by a
Palatka resident what was going on
\ithi the' new sewer system. This
person was convinced tax and grant
money had been abused, and that there
was a grand jury. investigation of city
council members.
Of course, this was news to me. The
person who related this to me stated
that they knew someone in Keystone
who told them all this was true. That
was two years ago, before any of the
current city council members save one
were even in office. As for the former
city council members, I surely know of '
no such investigation or even hint of
wrongdoing. All I know is that work is
proceeding on the sewer system.
My point is this. Rumors are not all
true. Rumors are general] easy to
check out, and some common sense
needs to be applied. Consider these
points before passing rumors on.
Rumors sometimes cause pain and
definitely waste time and energy. Not
to mention, some cost taxpayers'
dollars. Attorneys don't generally work
for free.

In Memory

In Loving Memory of
Owen James Phillips Jr
"O.J."
April 23, 1994
Somewhere in my dreams tonight
I'll see you standing there
You look at me with a smile
"Life isn't always fair."
It's said to be that angels
Are sent from above
I've always had my angel
My James whose heart was
filled with love
Whenever the ocean meets the sky
There will be memories of
you and I .
When I look up at the sky so blue
All I see are visions of you
"While there's heart in me,
You'll be a part of me."
.. poem by Jenn Farrell
You are missed and loved by your
wife. children and grandchildren



When you wish to instruct,
be brief.

"Assisted Living


This is devoted to raising public awareness about this model of service for the elderly.

Assisted living represents a combination of housing and personal care services to elderly

individuals who may need assistance. Assisted living fills a need between total

independence and total dependence. Assisted living can deliver care to the elderly in a

more cost-effective way than other elderly healthcare options. Su-El's Retirement Home

provides this in a homelike setting. Su-El's services are tailored for the individual which

allows a resident to maintain independence vs. support services which allows a person to

age in peace. Su-El's has a variety of senior housing alternates available to address the

varying needs of seniors. This enables a resident to. adjust and, add to the list of ADL's

without moving to a more institutionalized setting. We also provide Adult day-care for

those times when a small break in routine is necessary. Su-El's :is 45 minutes from

Jacksonville; 25 minutes from Gainesville Just 1 mile Southon CR 325, Hampton,

Two Starke
women shot,
one by police
Two Starke women, one
shot by the other and one shot
by a police officer, remain
hospitalized as of press time.
A report of a woman being
shot led police to a residence in
the 300 block of North Church
St. at 9:22 p.m. on April 14.
When officers Jason Crosby
arid James Hooper arrived at
the address they learned the
woman who had fired the shot
was next door to the victim,
barricaded in her bathroom.
Deborah K. Buffington, 52,
told her husband she was going
to kill herself. As police tried
to talk to her a second shot
was fired. When officers
attempted to force the
bathroom door open, the door
opened and Buffington appeared
with a high-powered rifle in
her hand. When instructed to
drop the weapon, Buffington
pointed the rifle at Officer
Hooper.
Officer Hooper fired one
round from his service weapon,
striking Buffington in the
abdominal area.
Rescue was contacted and
Buffington was transported to
Shands at the University of
Florida.
Located next door was Mary
Williams, 81, who had been
struck by a bullet that had
travelled through both houses.
\Williams was also transported
to Gainesville.
Both Buffington and
Williams underwent surgery
for their wounds. Williams
was in good condition as of
press time. Buffington remains
in a physician-induced coma
because of her injuries.. -
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement is
conducting the investigation
since an officer was involved
in the shooting, Chief Gordon
Smith said. "The preliminary
findings of the 'investigation
indicate that the officer
followed department police and
procedures," Smith said.

Two face
drug charges
Two men were arrested on
drug charges after their vehicle
blocking a driveway to an
apartment complex- in Starke
lead to them being questioned.
As two off-duty police
officers pulled up behind the
vehicle, obscenities were
shouted at them. When the
officers approached the vehicle
and identified themselves, they


smelled a strong odor of an
alcoholic beverage and burnt
marijuana coming from the
vehicle, according to Sgt.
Donald Spriggle and Officer
Stephen Murphy.
The driver of the vehicle,
Michael Thomas Kent, 23, of
Starke, was arrested April 15
by Starke Officer Paul King
for possession of marijuana.
Three burnt marijuana cigars
were found in Kent's sock and
a pants pocket, Officer King
said. Bond was set at $1,000.
Ronald D. Pugh, 29, of
Jacksonville was charged with
disorderly intoxication,
possession of marijuana and
possession of drug
paraphernalia, Officer King
said. Pugh, a passenger in the
vehicle, refused to calm down
and continued to b verbally
combative. He threw
something on the ground as he
was being placed under arrest.
The officers located a large
piece of marijuana and a
package of cigarette papers. An
open bottle of malt liquor was
found on the passenger
floorboard, Officer King said.
Pugh was released from
custody after a $3,000 surety
bond was posted.


Two arrested
for stealing
tires, wheels
Two men were arrested April
12 after they stole tires' and
wheels from a parked vehicle.
James D. Willis, 19, of
Starke and Brandon Bailey, 20,
of Hawthorne approached the
parked 1998 Pontiac in the
6000 block of Alligator
Avenue in Keystone Heights.
They attempted to take' the
wheels and tires from the
Pontiac but without a jack
they were unable to get them
off, Clay Deputy Robert E.
Dews said.
Using a rope and Willis'
Dodge pickup truck, they
rolled the Pontiac upside down
and removed the wheels and
tires, Deputy Dews said.


The theft was reported to
Clay County deputies by a
witness who observed the
pickup leaving the scene. The
four stolen tires and wheels
were in the bed of the Dodge
pickup truck, Deputy Dews
said.
Damage to the Pontiac was
$2,500. The vehicle and tires
were returned to the victim,
Deputy Dews said.
Willis and Bailey were
charged with burglary to an
auto and criminal mischief.
They were taken to the Clay
County Jail for booking.

(her as she walked the
i Survivors Lap" that kicked off
the annual Bradford-Union
Relay for Life, which was held
A at the: Bradford County
Fairgrounds April 15-16.
People walked around a track
set up at the fairgrounds to raise
S(W.qlJ.Qr the-American, Cancer
Society (the amount of money
raised was not know at press
time). Abourezk was one of
"-fnore than 20 cancer survivors
ho took part in the event.
S"I was very elated when I
,as walking. I was full. of
[ears." Abourezk said. "Two
ears ago. I wasn't able to walk
the walk. I couldn't make it

implications from cancer and
,s mother is a cancer survivor.


John Hamilton
addressed the crowd,
talking about his bout
with cancer as a child,
prior to the start of the
Relay for Life.

"I don't know of anybody
who has not been affected by
cancer in one form or another.
whether it be from a loved one.
a friend of a loved one. a family
member or even ourselves."
Foster said to the crowd prior to
the start of the relay. "That's
wh\ we're here today. The


relay itself is a chance for us to
get to know each other, to pay .
homage to those wh'o've
passed, to show our support for
those who are still battling this
disease and for those who are
surviving it."
Abourezk said she is the only
survivor, out of 30 in the entire
world, of a certain type of
ovarian cancer which resulted
in her undergoing six
chemotherapy treatments every,
21 days. She lost her hair and
got very sick, requiring 10
blood transfusions and four
platelet transfusions.
Doctors told her family
members one day that she
would not survive the night.
"God said otherwise,"
Abourezk said. "Right now, I
have a clean bill of health. They
gave me a two-year life
expectancy."
This October will mark three

"I'm thankful to be alive
today, that's for sure,"
Abourezk said.
Said Foster: "You hear the
'C' word and a lot of times it
means death. A lot of people
have that in their heads, but
that's changing. The relay is
one of the reasons mat's
changing."
The group of survivors
walking the track was enough
to prove that having cancer
does not necessarily result in
death. Surely the sight of the
survivors was an inspiration to

Former area resident finishes late father's CD


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
- "Mmm, It's Mighty Good."
That is ,the title of the
posthumously released CD by
Sorrells Pickard, but it also
sums up what Paul Bazzell
hopes would be his father's
reaction upon hearing it.
Pickard, who was living on
Lake Geneva prior to his death
in 2003 at the age of 63, wrote
more than 100 songs that were
performed by various country
artists, as well as recording his
own material, while living in
Nashville during 1966-1980.
Pickard, whose birth name
was James W. Bazzell Jr., never
stopped performing music and
was working on recording some
songs in 1996. He never
finished the project due to the
illness of his mother.
Paul Bazzell, a former
Keystone Heights resident who
now lives near Fernandina
Beach, came across the tape of
the 1996 sessions when he was
searching for songs to include
on an album of his own he was
working on. He listened to it
and was struck at how strong
his father's voice sounded on
the tracks.
"I just sat there in awe,"
Bazzell said. "I really had just
forgotten about it."
The project was forgotten no
more. Bazzell called his uncle,
John Michael Bazzell, and the
two got together to put the
finishing touches on Pickard's
recordings. Bazzell said 80-90


percent of the music on the
tracks had to be re-recorded
because of issues such as timing
and tuning.
"It took us about seven
months to actually get it
finished," he said.
There was a lot of laughter
and a lot of tears during those
seven months, which turned out
to be a "great healing process"
for both him and his uncle,
Bazzell said.
There was also some second
guessing about the project.
Bazzell admitted he worried
about whether his father would
have approved of the finished
album, but he said he and his
uncle made it a point to record
it in a style they knew Pickard
liked. For example, there are
not a lot of drums present on
the CD.
"We went .for that old
traditional style," Bazzell said.
The CD consists of 10 songs,
including "She Don't Make Me
Cry," which was a number-one
hit for David Rodgers, and "$15
Draw," which was recorded by
Ringo Starr on his second post-
Beatles album, "Beaucoups of
Blues."
Also on the CD is
"Everything Leads Back to
You." In a 2001 interview with
the Bradford County Telegraph,
Lake Region Monitor and
Union County Times, Pickard
said Slim Whitman's version of
that song was his favorite out' of
all of his songs that have been
recorded by other artists.
Pickard said Whitman sang the
song "true to the melody and
just sang it beautifully."

This is the cover to Sorrells Pickard's posthumously
released CD, "Mmm, It's Mighty Good."


Bazzell said one of his
personal favorites on the CD is
"Rachael" because it brings
back memories of living in
California in the late 1980s and
being around Pickard when he
wrote the song.


Pickard began his music
career as a teenager living in
Jacksonville, performing in
rock and roll bands. He even
signed a deal with ACE
Records at the time.
In 1966, Pickard decided to

move to Nashville and follow
through with his dream of
writing country music. Since he
performed rock and roll under
his birth name, Pickard decided
a name change was in order for
the new direction he was taking
in music.
"I just wanted (a name) that
sounded different," Pickard said
in the 2001 interview.'
Pickard played in bands for
several established artists
before working his' way into the
music business in Nashville.
Artists such as Roy Clark, Hank
Thompson, Kitty Wells and Del
Reeve, along with the Rodgers
and Starr, recorded his songs.,
His stay in Nashville lasted
until 1980, when Pickard
decided to move to Hollywood
to pursue acting. Pickard had
been involved in several low-
budget movies starring country
musicians that were filmed in
Nashville and he had a small
acting part in "W.W. and the
Dixie Dancekings," which
starred Burt Reynolds.
Pickard landed several roles
while in Hollywood, appearing
in movies such as "Hardbodies"
and "Lucky 13" with Eric Stolz.
In 1990, a meeting between
former film' editor Herb Dow
and Pickard resulted in the
creation of Sorrells Pickard

Gourmet Peanut Butter, which
was made using a recipe of one
of Pickard's grandmothers.
The peanut butter, which was
available in 11 western states,
has been off the market for a
while, but Bazzell said he is
currently involved in talks that
will hopefully lead to putting
the product back on store
shelves.
Despite becoming involved
in movies and peanut butter,
Pickard never abandoned
music. He always enjoyed
playing and even did so
alongside Bazzell at. Captain
Grog's in Keystone.

BECK
Continued from p. 1C

Beck Auto Sales, which owns
four other dealerships
(Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep, as
well as Mitsubishi and Nissan)
in Palatka and St. Augustine,
bought the Starke dealership
from Clayton Revels three years
ago. However, there are still
many people in the area who
think the business is still
operating under the "Revels"
name, Magee said.

The new facility,' hopefully,
will help clear that up.
"I'm most looking forward to
the fact of establishing our own
identity," Magee said. "Beck is
a name that carries a fantastic
reputation."
The new facility may help the
dealership create a sole identity,
but one thing it will definitely
do is consolidate all
services-sales, service, parts
and detail departments, as well
as offices-under one roof. The
current location does not afford
that opportunity.
"That's probably what excites
me the most-getting more
operations under one roof,"
Sloan said.
The new facility will,
eventually ,.lead to a larger
inventory for the dealership,.
though tny vehicle a customer
wants that is not in stock can
usually be obtained within 24
hours, Magee said. Currently,
the dealership keeps
approximately 75 new and 40-
50 used vehicles in stock,
maintaining more than $3
million worth of inventory.
"We look for our sales to
double when we get to the new
facility," Magee said. "Our
inventory will grow as that


Construction is progressing on the new Beck Chrysler Dodge Jeep of Starke dealership. The $2.5 million project is
anticipated to be completed in July barring any delays.


happens."
Sloan recently attended a
Florida Automobile Dealers
Association meeting in
Tallahassee and had an
opportunity to talk to
representatives of the Florida
Chamber of Commerce. The
chamber representatives
anticipate retail sales in the
section of the state from 1-4
north to 1-95 and 1-75 east to I-
95 to double in the next decade.
Sloan thinks Bradford
County will experience a lot of
that growth and the new Beck
facility will be better suited to
handle such growth.
"We have a facility now that
will take us into the next
decade," Sloan said.
The new facility will also be
more convenient for customers
who won't have to deal with the
traffic congestion at the comer
of SR-100 and US-301, Magee
said.
Keeping customers satisfied,
as with any business, is the
number-one priority for the
dealership, which is currently a
Chrysler Five Star Dealer. Five


Star dealerships are those that
maintain a 97-percent
customer-satisfaction rating.
.The new Beck facility is
'being designed to help keep that
customer-satisfaction rating
intact.
"There will be a customer
lounge while .they're waiting for
their vehicles to be repaired,"
Magee said. "They'll be able to
see into the shop from the
customer lounge so they can
actually see the work being
done on their car."
The lounge will feature cable
television, internet access and a
play room for children as well as
reading materials and coffee
,and donuts for those customers
who are waiting for vehicle
repairs.
"Not onl\ will everybody
under one roof, so everybody
can communicate: properly and '
more efficiently, but the facility
will now allow the customer to
have a much more pleasant
experience," Sloan said. 1
The dealership, after its.
move, will continue providing
free oil changes for three3'&ears
or 30,000 miles for customers


who purchased their vehicles
there. Also, there will be a
quick-lube lane for fast oil
changes.
Such customer convenience
also includes diagnosing a
vehicle's problem correctly,
Magee said. Equipment at the
technicians', disposal helps
them get to the root of the
problem quickly.
"We're not parts changers,"
Magee said. "We try to figure
,out what's truly wrong and then
fix the problem."
A vehicle repaired correctly
the first time won't bring a
customer back in the near
future, but Sloan. Magee hnd
everyone else at Beck want to
see their customers again at
some point. The goal is to
establish a long-rerm
relationship.
"'We cannot sta\ in business
lust selling ou one car." Mlagee


said. "This area's too small.
The only way we can prosper is
by keeping our customers
happy and having them come
back- and do business with us
again."
One way of doing that is by
selling vehicles at prices
comparable to or better than
those of dealerships in larger
cities. Magee said many people


I ose's


are under the impression they
can get better deals on Chrysler,
Dodge or Jeep vehicles in larger
cities, but that's not the case.
All dealerships pay the same
price for vehicles, Magee said.
.Therefore, a dealership's
operating expenses come into
play when determining a
vehicle's selling price.
"Our mortgage payment is
smaller and our advertising
costs are significantly smaller,"
Magee said. "We have fewer
expenses, so, therefore, we can
pass those savings onto our
customers."
Magee would encourage
anybody to visit Ieck Chrysler
Dodge Jeep of Starke at its
current location and, especially,
at its new location when it
opens.
"We're very excited to get to
that new building and let people
know what we're all about,"
Magee said.."The new Wal-
Mart is obviously going up and
everybody will be driving right
by us on their way to Wal-Mart.
We hope they'll takethe t ime to
stop in."

at the survivors' dinner.


RELAY
Continued from p. 2C
all who attended the relay, as
were the words of survivor John


Hamilton, who spoke before the
start of the relay.
Hamiltori, who is 37, was
diagnosed with bone cancer at
the age of 13. The disease put
an end to his athletic career.


"I played football, basketball
and baseball," Hamilton said. "I
don't think I was average. I
actually was pretty good and
looking forward to going into
high school, to play high school
ball."
Hamilton said his mind was
on becoming a professional
athlete one day. That did not
come to pass, but only because
God had something else in
mind for him, Hamilton said.
"I believe a higher power
allowed me to have a heart and
goodness to be a professional
person and reach out and touch
those who I can," he said.
Now Hamilton uses any
opportunity to' talk to others
about his life and how he
refused to become discouraged.
"Happiness is a choice for all
of us," Hamilton said. "We all
go through ups and downs, but
always remember there's that
neighbor or that person down
the street who is worse off than
you are. Just be blessed with
what you have." .

UC senior Brown to play


football at Jacksonville


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Things were not going the
way Union County High School
senior Jeremy Brown thought
they would, as far as getting the
opportunity to go off to college
and continue playing football,
but then,Jacksonville University
entered the picture, offering the
fullback a scholarship and the
chance to continue his playing
career.
As far as Brown is
concerned, JU has turned out to
be the perfect fit.
"It's just awesome," he said
of receiving the scholarship
offer. "It's not too close (to
home), but it's not too far
either."
Brown said he thought he had
some other options available to
him as far as scholarship and
playing opportunities, but, for
.whatever reason, things fell
through .
However, now he has the
chance to play in front of family


One cloud is sufficient to
eclipse a whole sun.
-Baltasar Gracian


and friends. He has family in
Jacksonville and' Baker County'
as'lwell as in Union County.: '
1That excites Union Count)
hehid coach Buddy Nobles, who
said that JU offering the
scholarship was a blessing from
God.
'I think it's a great
opportunity for (Brown),"
Nobles said.
When Brobn signed his letter
of intent,,it brought to fruition a
dre'am he has had all his life
while watching football. He
drq:amed of signing day and
being a part of that day.
'"It's all I ever thought of,"
Brown said.
Now Brown is ready to get
started working on his career., as
a J'U football player. He said he
has already been-made to feel.
wcOlcome, by the team's current.
players, who he said seemed
excited to have him join them.
'"They, took me in like I was
onai of their brothers," Brown
said.
.TU coaches should certainly
be !excited about getting Brown


because he's going to do thing."
for the program that no one's-.
done before, Nobles said. That,
includes being able to line up at
either fullback or tailback,-
-hich Brown said coaches have
already told him they would do.
Brown capped his senior
season at UCHS by rushing foi,.
1,547 yards and 16 touchdowns"
on 217 carries. He was ;t,
second-team all-state, selection" ,
in Class 2B and also named.,.
small classification co-offensive ?
player of the year by the^
Gainesville Sun. Brown shared '
that honor with. backfield
teammate C.J. Spiller.
During his junior season, in
which h he %as also a second-
team all-state selection. Brown -
rushed for 1.300 yards and 14
touchdowns.
Nobles said Brown's.
product~ ity is going to mean:-
good things for JU and make.
some other schools sorrs the)
passed on him. '
"You know what? (JU'slY
going to get a steal," Noble*.
said.

as did Bradford's Eric Palmer
(heavyweight), who will be the
only representative for the
Tornadoes at the meet.
Brown (219), Clyatt (129),
Vasquez (119). and Waters
(169) earned berths in the state
finals by winning their weight
classes at sectional meets. The
winners of each weight class in
the nine sectional meets
throughout the state earned
berths.
The rest of the state-finals
field was compiled by
comparing the totals of the
lifters from all of the sectionals
and taking the next best nine
lifters in each weight class.
Harrell and Vasquez each
finished with a total of 365
pounds at their respective
sectional meets, which was
seventh best among sectional
results. The lifter in the 119-
pound class with the best
total-440 pounds-from his
sectional meet is Wilfredo
Zabala of Bartow.
Clyatt compiled the fifth-best
total in the 129-pound class at
the sectional meets at 410
pounds. Thed top lifter in that
class was St. Augustine's
Marcus Oliver, who had 480
pounds.
,Waters' sectional total of 560
pounds was eighth best in the
169-pound class. Blountstown's
Arsenio Ivory's total of 655
pounds was the best.
Brown finished in a tie with
Nease's Charlie Kirschman for
the best total in the 219-pound
class at 650 pounds. Passanante
had the second-best total-645
pounds-and Alexander's 590-
pound total placed him at 13th
among the finalists.
Palmer finished 15th among
the finalists in the heavyweight
class with a 615-pound total.
Suwannee's Charles Wooten
had the best total at 780 pounds.
Most of the area's qualifying
lifters have recorded better
totals during the season at some
point than what they did at the
sectional meets. Those lifters
include Clyatt, who had a 430-
pound total this year, Vasquez,
who had a 390-pound total, and
Brown, who had a 680-pound
total.

Varmints,
catfish and the
great outdoors

By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors Editor
The 2005 spring .gobbler
season officially ends this
Sunday night at sunset. Most
hunters look at this as the
"unofficial" end of the 2004-05
hunting season here in the
Central Management Zone of
Florida.
Most of us started our annual
hunting season Sept. 25 with
the opening of archery season,
and that was seven months ago!
You mean. we have hunted for
seven months? Well, not
exactly, as most of us took a
break from the end of general
gun season on. Jan. 23, with a
few die-hard hunters running on
out until the March 6 end of
quail and gray squirrel season.
Spring turkey season began


March 19 and goes until April
24, about five weeks in
duration.
What do we do next?

The next five months
Officially, the next new
hunting season to open in 2005
will be archery, presently
scheduled for Sept. 24. What
can the hunter, fisherman and
outdoorsman do until then?
LOTS.
Following are some great
outdoor adventures for the
coming months.

Varmints, wild hogs
For, the dedicated (my wife
says the proper word is "crazy")
"hunter-only" group, there is
virtually year-round action on
varmints and hogs. And there
are also the non-native,
invasive animals, such as the
pesky armadillo and coyote.
Non-native animals are not
protected in Florida.
There is NO closed season, in
Florida, on rabbit, raccoon,
opossum, skunk, nutria, beaver,

Errors costly

in 2-1 loss

for Tornadoes


or coyote. And most outdoor
woodsmen and women would
agree that most of the varmints
do a great deal of damage to our
game and wildlife, with many
of these predators eating both
the baby turkeys and quail.
(We will save the issue of
feral cats for another day, but
obviously something is going to
have to eventually be done on
this matter. It is reported on the
Internet that there at least six
million feral cats in Florida,
ALL of which continuously
decimate the young bird and
small mammal population.)
The raccoon and opossum are
known to eat both turkey eggs
and young chicks, and coyotes,
a true invader in Florida, can
eat an adult turkey, as well as a
fawn, calf, piglet, house cat or
pet dog. A few years ago, it was
reported that a commercial
airplane couldn't land in Tampa
because of a coyote on the
runway.
Not good.
So, a little varmint control
could really help our game
animal population remain
healthy and grow naturally.
Turkeys have, fortunately,
made a tremendous comeback
over the last 30 years and the
white tail deer may actually be
the most adaptable North
American mammal, living in
almost every state,
Effective predator control can
help save our game animals and
wildlife.

In a tight, defensive game,
mistakes can be costly as the
Bradford softball team found
out in a 2-1 loss in 11 innings to
Trinity Catholic on Monday in
Ocala.
Pitcher Kasey Barrett threw a
gem, allowing one hit and one
walk while striking out 16.
However, two errors allowed
both Trinity runs to score.
It was a scoreless game until
the sixth inning. Bradford
committed two errors, the
second of which allowed a
runner on third to score.
The Tornadoes'came -back in
the seventh to tie the game.
Courtney Cummings had
singled and moved to second on
a sacrifice, but Bradford %as
down to its last out when
Jessica McClellan singled up
the middle to score Cummings.
Bradford head coach Jeremy
McFadyen said the Tornadoes
had many opportunities to score
in extra innings, but they could
not quite get it done.
In the bottom of the 11t", with,
one out, a Trinity runner&
reached base on an error before
Barrett allowed her only hit of
the game-a double. That put
runners on the corner before the
Tornadoes committed another
error that allowed the winning
run to score. '
It was the fourth straight loss
for Bradford (11-12 prior to
April 19). On April 14, the
Tornadoes, despite a three-run
home run from Amanda Reed,
lost 5-3 to Bishop Kenny in
Jacksonville.
