Union County honors its fallen heroes


By JAMES REDMOND-
Times Staff Writer
On May 30, more than 150
Union County residents turned
out at the Veteran's memorial
in Lake Butler to honor those
who had given their all for
their country.
The annual Memorial Day
:remembrance took place where
Sthe names of Union County
residents who died while
serving their country 'are-
forever etched. The Lake
Butler Veteran's of Foreign
Wars (VFW) Post 10082
hosted the ceremony.
The ceremony included a
rendition of "America the
Beautiful" by the Praise
-Fellowship Baptist Church of
Raiford praise group. After,
Bill McGill displayed a World
War I rifle that had been
donated to the Union County
Historical Society by the
Driggers family.
Lake Butler Fire Chief Mike
Banks than presented the VFW
with a plaque recognizing all
the contributions the
organization had made to the
department. VFW Post
:Commander Sam Jenkins
accepted the plaque.
Diane Moore, daughter of


Chief Master Sgt. Thomas
Moore, told her story about
growing up being the child of a
soldier that was missing in
action (MIA). A tearful Moore
told of a Western Union
telegram arriving by taxi. The
correspondence came when
Moore was only 11 years old.
The telegram informed her
family that her father, while
returning base, had been
captured and was MIA. "What
do .you mean my daddy is
missing?" asked an- li-year-
old Moore. The telegram
arrived Oct. 3,1, 1965.
Nearly four decades later,
Moore still has no word on
what happened to her father.
The Department of Defense
still classifies him as MIA and
the case is still open.
According to Moore, he is on
the last list of those known to
be alive from the Vietnam
War.
"Every year the startling
reality that my dad is not
coming home lives with me,"
Moore told the audience. She
said more than 2,000 soldiers
are still considered MIA. "I'm
the daughter of a forgotten
hero,' said Moore.
She explained to the

FDOT plans to replace two
bridges in 2006. The bridge
that crosses Swift Creek on
C.R. 241 is the first project the
department looks to tackle.


Currently the project is in its
preliminary engineering phase
as well. FDOT is attempting to
obtain right-of-way for some
of the construction.
"Right-of-way can take from
18 to 24 months to acquire,"
said Green.

replacement in 2006 is the

No significant changes In FCAT scores


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
FCAT scores from fourth
through tenth graders in Union
County show no' significant,
changes from last year's
.eores.
l:The most significant change
was the 19 point jump in sixth
grade math scores. It was the
biggest improvement of any
Grade level in Union County.
An eight- point increase in
eighth grade -reading scores
was the second best
improvement.
While. there..,,, slight,
improvements in other
categories as well, most of the
Union County scores trailed
those of the rest of the state.
Superintendent Carlton Faulk
said while the district has seen
a. few improvements, it's not
were they want to be. "We are
improving, but we're not
where we want to be," said
Faulk.
Faulk credited improvements
in math scores to new
curriculum the district was
using. "The different strategies
teachers have been using has
helped as well," said Faulk.
"we've really being stressing
both- -reading -and- math
programs in our curriculum."
Faulk said he thinks it will
just take time to see a
significant improvement in the.
scores. "All the things we are
using will help to improve the
scores over time," said Faulk.
In the fourth grade, scores,
improved in both math and
reading. Fourth grade had nine
point gain in reading. Fourth
graders also improved eight
points in- math. While the
improvements did top last
years scores, they once again
did not meet the state average.
In fifth grade, math and
reading scores improved by
fiye points. Fifth graders once
again failed to reach the state

Burney. "They deserve hont

He went on to explain th
history of Memorial Day. H
told of how Maj. Gen. Joh
Logan of the Grand Army c
the Republic established
Decoration Day on May 5
1868. The day was set aside t
decorate the graves of the wa
dead with flowers. He held tha
the day be observed on Mai
30. It is believed Memoria
Day came about because o
this observance.
According to the Departmen
of Veterans Affairs, several
cities claim the title of hosting
the first Memorial Da'
observances. In 1966
Congress and Presiden
Lyndon Johnson declared
Waterloo, N.Y., the
"birthplace" of Memorial Day.
The day was originally
designed to honor the soldiers
of the Civil War. After World
War I, the day was expanded
to recognize all those who had
died in any American war.
In 1971, the day was
declared a national holiday by
Congress. The designation
placed the remembrance on the
last Monday in May. This
coincided with other federal
holidays.
After Burney completed his
speech, Ted Barber and poyl I
Godwin of the VFW, laid a
wreath in front of the
Veteran's Memorial. The red,
white and blue wreath was
placed in honor of the 16
names that adorn the wall.

resurfacing of several count)
roads, will come from the
state's Small County Outreact
program (SCOP). The prograrr
provides assistance to small
county governments for
resurfacing, reconstructing.
constructing capacity and
safety improvements to county
roads.
The FDOT considers several
factors when deciding how the
funds will be distributed.
These include:
The extent to which a
project will encourage,
enhance or create economic
benefit.
The extent to which
innovative public-private
partnerships could be fostered.
The extent to which the
project uses new technologies.
The likelihood the
assistance would allow the
project to proceed at a much
earlier date.
--In the 2004-05 fiscal year
the state set aside $20 million
for the SCOP program. It is
projected. the program will
-receive the same amount for
the 05-06 fiscal year.
Another program. that will
benefit the county n by helping
to improve roads is the Small
County Road Assistance
Program (SCRAP). The
program provides assistance to
small county governments in
resurfacing and reconstructing
county roads.
To be. eligible for the
program counties must:
Have a population of
75,000 or less.
Enact the maximum local
option fuel tax authorized by
the state. (Currently this is a
six cents per gallon.)
Have imposed an ad
valorem millage rate of at least
eight mills or has imposed a
rate of 10 mills.
Union County currently
meets all three criteria. Project
selection is based on the
physical condition of the road
itself. The condition is
determined by FDOT and not
the county receiving the
funding.
These programs require
almost all counties to match
the funding that is provided by
the FDOT. Because Union
CoiM.L.q4alifie s asa Rural.
Economic ,Development
Initiative county, it is able to,
request the requirement be
waived. A project must be in
the five-year work program for
the matching funds to be
waived.
During the 2004-05
legislative session, law makers
unsuccessfully attempted to
merge the. two programs.
Senate bill 1456, the
Transportation Rural Initiative
Program (TRIP), would have
combined the SCRAP and
SCOP funding. The measure
would have also put the state's
Transportation Outreach"
Program in the TRIP program.
Another project on the
department's list was the
resurfacing of C.R. 18 from
S.R. 121 to the :Bradford
County line... Last"'year the
board requested a sidewalk,.be
added to the project.. Green
told the board that the request
would probably be denied.
"That's-something' we're still
looking at, but right now it
does not appear it's going to be
feasible to do it," said Green.
"There are various reasons, but
I won't get bogged down in
that tonight."
Green did tell the board that
right-of-way and permitting.
issues were some:: of the
obstacles FDOT faced in
including the request in the
project. Funding was another
issue.
"Because the sidewalk
would have to be done with
federal funds and the


resurfacing with state funds,
it's difficult for us to mix those
funds," Green explained.
Staying on the subject of
sidewalks, commissioners
asked Green if there was
anything the department could
do about making some of the
sidewalks in the city of Lake
Butler more handicap
accessible.
Commissioner Ricky
Jenkins asked Green what the
FDOT planned to do about the
sidewalks along S.R. 231
between S. R. 100 and S. R.
121. "They never came in and
cut those out to make them
handicap accessible," said
Jenkins. "Now scooters get out
in the road in the lane of
traffic."
Green said the departments
policy was when it came
through to do resurfacing work
is when the problems like
sidewalks were corrected. "We

the profession.
The program is structured to
meet the needs of the students
in the college's five-county
district (Columbia, Dixie,
Union, Gilchrist, and Baker
counties), and to meet the
educational and training needs
of the forest industry within
these areas. Although Forest
Operations students come from
outside the five-county district
and often are employed in other
counties, the objectives of the
school and program are
consistent with the needs of the
forest industry, especially in
the Southeastern United States
where the majority of the
graduates are employed.
So if it's quicker job
placement in the forest industry
that is of main interest to you
or the ability to further your

then Lake City Community

Fire destroys Worthington Springs home


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
A fire in the late-night hours
of May 29 has fire
investigators declaring the
home a total loss.
At 9:30 p.m., firefighters
from Union County,
Worthington Springs and Lake
Butler fire departments were
called to 5651 S.W. 57th Drive.
The three departments worked


for more than an hour to bring
the blaze under control.
The structure, a doublewide
mobile home, was already
fully involved in flames once
fire crews arrived on scene. It
is unknown whether anyone
was in the home at the time of
the fire. Fire officials said that
they found no evidence of
anyone being hurt or perishing
in the fire. Neighbors say no
one has been at the home for


more than a week.
Officials said the location of
the home made it difficult for
fire crews to get to. It is
located more than a mile of
C.R. 791 on S.W. 57'h Drive.
The area is known as the
Upland Pines Plantation
subdivision. The road to the
home is a narrow dirt road,
which fire officials say they
had a tough time negotiating.
After the fire was out,

New store in Starke is music to people's ears


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
John McMillan thinks back to
the time when he was a student
at Bradford High School and
how students who played
musical instruments or who
were studying music had to
usually go out of town to buy
anything they needed.
Musicians in Bradford
County and the surrounding.
area now have an option closer
to home after Matt Stucky
opened North Florida Music


and Sound in November 2004.
"This is excellent," said
McMillan, who is currently
teaching guitar lessons at the
store.
Stucky, a 1995 BHS
graduate, worked previously in
a music store in Lake City. A
lot of the customers he saw
there were from Bradford
County. Many of those
customers asked Stucky when
he was going to open a music
store in Starke.
The notion of doing so finally
struck a chord with Stucky.

"That's basically how it
happened," he said. "It was just

finally, I felt like the timing was

here to do that."
Stucky admits he was a little
hesitant about opening a store
n Starke, saying that many
people who live in Starke and
Bradford County work out of

heir shopping out of the area.

Further from the truth."
The lessons that have been

Purple Day is Friday

at Bradford ARC


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer
On Friday, June 3, from 10
a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the ARC of
Bradford County in Starke will
be holding its annual Purple
Day event, which honors
individuals they serve.

At least 100 people are
expected to be at the upbeat
event, where each of ARC's
consumers will receive a
certificate of appreciation.
Various games and activities
will be in swing that day; a cake
walk, bingo with prizes,
karaoke and basketball are
scheduled for all to enjoy.

Program Manager Johnnie
Mae Mosley and delivery driver
Tracey.Kepler explained what
Purple Day is all about as well
as the factory work that spins
and sparks within the seemingly
quiet building set back just a tad
from the main road on Water


Street.
Held exclusively for family
and friends of ARC's own
consumers, the tradition dates
back to 1977. It is held on the
first Friday of every June.
Originally called Consumer
Appreciation Day, it is
nowadays called Purple Day,
with purple being the color
chosen to symbolise
appreciation to the consumers.

ARC currently has under its
roof about 100 consumers, the
individuals who organize;
produce and prepare steel and
wood items for industry. From
building survey stakes and
pallets, to cutting and
distributing rebar and .selling
concrete monuments, the
factory is busy.
Their buyers include
Pipeline, Ray Dougherty, Pat
Welch and REDD Team
manufacturing, for which they
package and assemble building
components.

up.

morning," Stucky said. "To get
me here on time for school was
definitely a sacrifice on his
part."
Stucky is grateful for what
his father did because he feels
the change in schools ultimately
made him a better student. At
Suwannee High School, which


did not have a music program
like BHS, Stucky said he
maintained a 2.5 grade-point
average (GPA). During his time
at BHS, Stucky's GPA never
dropped below 3.5.
The BHS chorus program
gave Stucky something to
participate in and,
consequently, made school fun.
"Music was a huge turning
point in my life as far as having

Stucky received an AA
degree from Lake City
Community College, then
transferred to the University of
Florida to study music
education. It was his intent to
become either a high school
choral director or a church
music leader.
That never happened. Stucky
never earned a degree at UF,
where he found the music he
was studying was stylistically
different, from what he
enjoyed-gospel and jazz.
Also, Stucky had the
opportunity to serve as an
interim minister of music for a
year while he was working at
the music store in Lake City.
He said that was an eye-

The virtue of the
imagination is its reaching,

more essential truth than is

-John Ruskin


Consumers
are urged to
get free
credit reports
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers
to take advantage of a law that
requires major credit reporting
services to provide free credit
reports.
The amendment to the Fair
Credit Reporting Act was
designed to provide consumers
who cannot or will not pay a
fee for the reports to access
them for free once a year. The
law has been phased-in across
the United States, and Florida
residents will be. eligible for
the documents on June 1.
"Reviewing your credit
history is one of the most.
important steps people can take
to avoid identity theft,"
Bronson said. "If consumers
find out that someone is using
their identity or credit cards
without their knowledge, the
credit reports may be the first
hint they have that there is a
problem."
A credit report contains
information about a consumer's
credit history, including a
listing of all credit cards,
whether bills have been paid on
time, and whether the
consumer has been sued,
arrested or filed for bankruptcy.
National consumer reporting
agencies sell the information to
credit card companies and other
creditors, insurers, employers
and other businesses that use it

history can result in rejection
of credit or higher interest rates
on a loan.
"Consumers should regularly
review these reports for any
mistakes," Bronson said.
"Identity theft is not the only
concern. False information that
hurts someone's credit rating
can mean the difference of
whether they can buy a home
or not. It is important to
ensure the information is
accurate and up to date,
especially before making a
major purchase."
Consumers can challenge and
change incorrect information
on the reports. The three
major credit reporting agencies
are Equifax, Experian. and
TransUnion. To obtain a free
copy of reports from these
agencies, log onto

of any other sites which claim
to offer free reports but steer

Buckle Up in
Your Truck
Pickup tuck drivers and their
passengers are among those
Americans least likely to
regularly wear their safety belts
according to the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA).
, Chief Gordon Smith and his
officers are joining with
NHTSA, the Florida
Department of Transportation
and law enforcement leaders
across an eight-state region in
the Southeastern U.S. to
launch an aggressive new
public awareness initiative
called "Buckle Up in Your
Truck."
The goal is simple, to save
more lives on our roadways by
convincing pickup truck drivers
and their passengers to always
buckle up. .
Reminding pickup truck
occupants to always wear their
safety belts is important
because that is the single best
defense .against ejection in a
crash. In fact. that simple step

Local youth reads winning essay at Starke ceremony


As a part of the Memorial
Day ceremony held at
the Charlie Schaefer Veteran's
Memorial Park in Starke,
Abigail Crawford read her
essay, "Celebrating America's
Veterans," which received first
place in the 2004-05 Voice of
Democracy Contest Audio
Essay Contest.
The essay contest, sponsored
locally by Bradford County
VFW Post 1016 and its Ladies
Auxiliary, is part of a national
VFW effort to foster patriotism,
citizenship and a sense of civic
responsibility among young


people. The Voice of
Democracy contest gives ninth-
through 12h"-grade students a
chance to voice their ideas,
opinions and thoughts on the
selected theme in a three- to
five-minute recorded essay.
Crawford is a 17-year old
homeschool student and the
daughter of Donnie and Denise
Crawford. She received a $100
U.S. savings bond and a chance
to compete at the district, state
and national level for valuable
awards.
Crawford's essay is as
follows:


"Hey, Mom, do you care if I
hang out with Anna in the
morning since I don't have
school. We thought we'd see if
Natalie wants to go skating and
to the mall. You know she's
been feeling sad since her dad
got stationed in Iraq. And Mom,
you know my new friend
Rachel? She invited me to
attend synagogue with her
family. Won't that be cool! I've
never been to a Jewish
synagogue before."
"Did you forget that you
agreed to volunteer at the
Memorial Day celebration?"


my mother reminded me.
"Oh Mom, I forgot all about
that! I was really looking
forward to spending the day
with friends!"
"You will be through in time
to go to synagogue with Rachel
tomorrow evening, but you
have already made an
obligation to the VFW Post for
in the morning."
I reluctantly called Anna and
told her I would not be able to
go with her.
"Why not," she wondered?

"He commanded me to stop
and put my hands up," Kan
said. "However, my shaved
head and haggard appearance
indicated to him that I was not
an enemy.
"After several minutes of
questioning me, I told him that I
was a Jewish prisoner of the
local concentration camp,
whereupon he embraced me and
said the most wonderful words I
have ever heard-'You are free
now.'"
Kan said he never got the


American's name. That soldier,
however, gave Kan something
he treasures to this day-an
Armry-issued Mezuzah (Jewish
talisman) to wear around his
neck.
Towers spoke, about Kan's
life following his liberation.
Kan went to Brussels and
became acquainted with an
American soldier from New
York who was returning to the
U.S. to be discharged. Kan
contacted an uncle, who moved
from German to New York in
1919, through the soldier. The
uncle later contacted Kan and,
after three years, Kan
immigrated to the U.S., settling
in Long Island, N.Y.
Kan now resides in Boynton
Beach.

Towers said he often
wondered over the years what
had become of the
concentration camp survivors
he and his unit liberated. Did
they survive for any .length of
time? Were they reunited with
surviving family members?
What was their lot in life?
Those were questions Towers
asked himself. He got the
answers to some of his
questions in April, when he met
Kan in Magdeburg during the
city's 60th anniversary
celebration of its liberation.
Towers was invited to speak at
the e\ent and he found himself
sharing a stage with Kan.
"Needless to say. this was a
vern emotional meeting of the
liberator and the liberated."
Towers said "After 60 \ears.
we had come full circle."
Kan, during the Blanding
ceremony, could not thank
Towers and all veterans enough
for their efforts.
"You ga\e me back my
dignity and my honor," Kan
said. "You restored my faith
and hope in the human race
again. You gave me back my
life. For that, I want to embrace
you all and thank you a million
times."
Kan, because of what he went

who %were brought home for

Towers said. "They must never
be forgotten, but we'must never
forget those survivors who
came home and get little or no
recognition, especially those
who were wounded mentally
and physically. They were,
heroes, too."

addresses crowd
Kan was not the only special


guest present during the Camp
Blanding ceremony. Rupert
Metzroth spoke of the honor of
being back at Camp Blanding,
though the first time he was
there was as a German prisoner
of war during World War II.
It was November 1944 when
Metzroth arrived at. Camp-
Blanding as a "bewildered 18-
year-old youngster," he said.
Though he was a prisoner,
Metzroth said he realized
personal freedom for the first
time.
"We were treated like human
beings," Metzroth said. "Also,
for the first time in my military
life, I was not hungry, though I


had a little trouble with corn
flakes until I added milk and
sugar.
"The real nourishment for me
was reading newspapers,
magazines and books.
Fortunately, I learned English
in high school. Though limited
in vocabulary, I could immerse
myself into a new world--a
world that seemed little
restrained by government
regulation and propaganda.
POWs were spared daily
accounts of sacrifices and hero
worship.
"From then on, I was hooked
on reading. Thus I coined the


expression, 'Camp Blanding,
my alma mater.'"
Metzroth, whose son served
as a U.S. Marine, said he hal
heard accounts of combat frord
soldiers on all sides and they all
shared a common bond-they
all suffered the hardships thai
come with war. That included
watching fellow soldiers--and
sometimes close friends-die. .
"We buried friend and foe,"
Metzroth said. "A small cross
or Star of David, or a down-
turned rifle topped by a helmet
marked the last resting place of
a fallen comrade. Let us never
forget them. May they all rest in
peace."

Rosiers take home 'Fantastic Foster Parent' award


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer

,Unaware that she and her
better half would take home the
Fantastic Foster Parent award at
the Partnership for Strong
Families' Foster Parent
Appreciation Day dinner, held
May 19 at the First Presbyterian
Church in Starke, Debbie
Rosier spoke of her journey and
shared her insight.
Rosier's journey began when
she took temporary custody of
her niece, Tammy. Then she
met Dwight, who handled the
situation so well that the two
were able to marry and keep the
knot tied for 10 years while
welcoming a flow of foster kids
into their home. Today the
proud couple from Lawtey is
still saying welcome.
When asked if her husband
had ever given her any friction
about marrying a woman who
not only already had a child, but
furthermore, a child that was
not biologically hers, she
confidently shook her head no,
with a smile. He was no
stranger to ..interesting turns in
the family. free; Debbie's sister


is married to Dwight's brother.
The Rosiers have so far taken
75 to 100 foster kids under their
wings. "I enjoy giving them a
home...knowing that they at
least have a place to come to,"
said Debbie.
All of her own children have
always been foster children.


I


The 'current lineup of little ones
in the Rosier home is as
follows: two 13-year-old boys
welcomed about five years ago
and an 11-year-old girl who is
turning out to be a tomboy.
Debbie, a cafeteria food
services manager for Bradford
County High School, and


Dwight, a stacker operator for
Gilman Building Products,
experience special joys. She
cited the memory of watching
her child "walk down the aisle
and get a diploma."
Perhaps some have
misconceptions about foster
parenting. While still single,
Debbie foster parented eight
kids, six of which were teens.
She jokingly recalled the
common sight of phones thrown
all over her teen-populated
home, including through the
walls.. But still, she has no
regrets.
Perhaps if there is a
.misconception that foster kids
are out of control, then perhaps
the truth is that they are no
more out of control than the
next kid. Perhaps the sight of
phones tossed around a home is
an indication that there are
normal, happy teenagers living
in the home, and happy
teenagers like to talk. Debbie
smiled as she reminisced.
As far as the common notion
that adoption is costly, Rosier
had this to say: "If you're going
in- it for the money, you're
going in for the wrong
reason...if you're going in it for


the kids, you're going in it for
the right reason." She stated
that "you spend more than what
you are given," suggesting that
perhaps whatever funding the
foster parent initially perceived
as insufficient can soon pale in
comparison to the joy of
discovering that all the
sacrifices and stretches one had
prepared or even started to
make won't be necessary for
only one reason: "Kids are not
asking for a lot; they are asking
for love."
.She believes low income
should not disqualify someone
from being a foster parent at the
get-go either, for people's
perceptions about their own
savings and budgeting can shift.
Debbie, like any foster
parent, knows that eventually
these kids will go back to their
biological parents. Her little
girl, who especially likes
baseball and basketball, may be


saying goodbye to be closer to
her biological family' oYe day. .
Debbie explained that most
kids want to go back to their
biological parents. The law
states that foster kids must be
returned to their biological
parents, but that cannot be done
in every case. When asked how
it feels to let go of one of her
foster children, she responded,
"You know you've done the
best you can do... given them
the values and morals and hope
they've learned."
When asked if there are traits
that all foster kids have in
common, Debbie responded in
saying the kids feel like they the
.kids have done something
wrong and that foster parents
have to keep reminding them
that "it's not their (the kids')
fault."
The remarks she gets from
non-fostering parents are ones
of admiration.


Many speak on foster care program


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer

The individuals who play a
unique role with the Partnership
for Strong Families (PSF)
present a spectrum of caring
and motiared individuals. On
May 19 the experts of foster
care appeared at the Foster
Parent Appreciation Day dinner,
at the First PresbN terian Church
in Starke to promote foster
parenting -.and share in the
honoring of hard work done
well.
Penny and Dozie Sirmones
were awarded .for being the
most recent couple to be foster
parents vwith PSF: In the course
of a single year,' the couple has
foster parented an army of
seven kids. Although not-
present, staff of the Starke
Service Center deemed their
nomsipn p.j! ,..
Also. on hand were James
SimW!"PM adf iT-fail\ care
counselor and Lakeisha Austin,,
family care counselor. Their
enthusiasm was evident.
Simon, who also addressed
the families, explained that.he
found his path to PSF by
beginning \,ith an in\oltement
in church and working with
children. "It was a great fit" he
beamed, explaining that the
"most important .thing (about
his experience with PSF is)
being able to protect a child and
place a child in a home." He
continued: "Being able to watch
a child develop and change
from very negative behavior,
such as biting, fighting and
kicking, and ,p a 180-degree
turnaround, hugging, kissing,
and showing affection" is what
it's all about.
He spoke of big '
improvements seen in grades,
social skills and the joys of
watching a kid 'blossom.
comparing a child to a new-
flower. He emphasized that-it"
.takes time to develop a:
character. "That's a reward we
receive in our work," he
proudly said of the struggling,
kids PSF helps.
Guest Speaker Dusty Pye's
layman's language insight and
utterly honest confessions from,


the frontlines of social work
brought smiles and applause
across the room.
The "If I could just get a job
working for all these kids"
mindset he once had to admit to
only worked for about five
days, he joked. "If you're in the
foster care business, it takes
more than love." It may also
take a dream or passion, he
emphasized.
Pye reminded the foster
parents that failing and, making
mistakes is not the end: "And
sometimes when you feel like
you don't love it," that's okay,
for sometimes the meeting of
the burden of it has to take over.
Pye spoke of the importance
of helping a child feel
connected to a family: "We
need to keep kids connected,"
he said. He admitted that he
interviews troubled parents all
the time, and even % hen he
doesn't like what a parent ..lIs
doing, he has to help them
anyway' in working toward
healing a strained situation in
the home. "We have to
understand birth parents," he
explained. .
In the "young people's
business" since age 18i Pye
spoke of the stress involved
when a foster child pays a visit
to the biological parent. Visits
are., hard (on the foster child and
both sets of parents). Upon
return to the faster home, a
foster kid can:"act up."
Pye closed his speech with a
memorable statement: "We
can't, change the world, but we
can do our best one life at a
time."

Roger Lloyd, the former head
coach of the boys' soccer team
at Keystone Heights High
School, recently accepted the
head coaching position at
Gainesville's P.K. Yonge.
Lloyd, who resigned after
three seasons' as the coach at
Keystone, replaces Joel

the head coaching duties at Dr.
Phillips High School in
Orlando.
"We are extremely fortunate
to land a quality coach in Roger


Lloyd to continue to lead the
program in the direction of
excellence," P.K.Yonge athletic
director John Clifford said.
During his tenure at
Keystone, Lloyd compiled a 41 -
17-5 record. He guided the
Indians to their first-ever
district championship in the
2003-04 season and the team
repeated that feat 'this past
season. Keystone went
undefeated in district play
during each of those seasons.

that most folks who try it, like

"It takes a special person to

that foster parents know that no

Jennifer Justice, community

"We've taken over...The
Department of Children and

"What exactly is VFW," she

"Well, VFW stands for

"Maybe she is right. My plans

spoiled. Why do we need to
celebrate our veteran's service
anyway?"

Saltwater

variety

By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors Editor
In addition to spending as
much time as possibles*
freshwater fishing for bass,
bream or catfish, or ,hunting in
season, many of our readers and
outdoorsmen and women also
like to saltwater fish, catching
anything from trout, reds and
flounder over at Steinhatchee to
catching blues or Spanish
mackerel at the Mayport or
Matanzas inlets.
Saltwater angling offers a
great variety, of fish to catch and
many opportunities for outdoor
fun and adventure this summer.

Variety
There is an almost endless
variety of species of saltwater
fish in Florida waters and many
of these saltwater varieties are-
easily caught in the brackish

The Florida Fish arid
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is keying

Division of Law Enforcement-
gears up for a busy summer
boating season: -stav alert,
wear your life jacket and don't
drink and operate a boat. The
agency says keeping these
Messages in mind can
dramatically decrease your
chances of getting into an
accident and increase your
chances of survival- if you do.
"In 2003, Florida led the
nation' in boating deaths with
64, and last year we had 68.
We hope to reverse that trend
by alerting boaters to the
biggest dangers,". said Capt.
Richard 'Moore, Florida's
boating law administrator.
Moore said the agency honed
in on the three safety messages
after analyzing Florida's boat
accident data.
Collisions with vessels or.
fixed objects are the two
leading types of accidents.,
Last year, they accounted for
nearly half of the mishaps on
Florida's waterways. Moore
said this reflects the importance
of staying- alert to everything
going on around you..
"One of the biggest
misconceptions. about boating
accidents is that they are'caused
by extremely reckless behavior,
but when you look at the
numbers you see that it comes
down to people not paying
attention or making one
careless move," Moore said.
"We want people to go out and
have fun, but also to
understand the minute they lose
focus something could
happen."
Moore said alcohol and not.
wearing a life jacket are the,
two major contributors to fatal


accidents. In 2004, alcohol use
was the primary cause of 21
percent of boating deaths.
Almost one-third of the fatal
accidents were classified as
"falls overboard," and drowning
was the cause of death in 65
percent of those fatalities. -
"We don't know the exact
number of people who would
have survived these accidents
had they been wearing a life
jacket, but there is no doubt
that most might still be alive
today if they had worn a life
jacket." Mooresaid. .

variety and good eating too!

i The inshore saltwater
fisherman may also catch the
throwbacks-saltwater catfish,
eels, stingrays, crabs, jacks and
tlhe saltwater tap-dancing
artist-the ladyfish. These


ladyfish usually put on a pretty
good show, leaping and
jumping. Occasionally they can
actually turn a complete flip in
their acrobatic display.


Intracoastal
Waterway
As we move on out the rivers
and leave the brackish water
behind, other saltwater fish start
showing up at the inlets,
especially two real good


fighters-the bluefish and the
Spanish mackerel.
Bluefish, in particular, are
fun to catch, as they are
aggressive, strong and also have
a very sharp set of teeth. If you
have ever caught many of these,
you have probably been nicked
or cut (and maybe bitten) by
these teeth.' These fish fight
every inch of the way in and a
large one can sound like he'.s.

bottom of your boat after you


get him in.
Be careful with bluefish.

Atlantic or Gulf?
From our area, we can be at
or even in either the Atlantic
Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico in
under two hours. Florida is
often called "The Fishing
Capital of the World" because,
as a peninsula, we have two
oceans to fish in, as well as the
thousands of combined miles of
rivers, streams, ponds and lakes
in our state.

Bait
Most saltwater fishermen use
shrimp in the rivers and
waterways-fresh shrimp, cut
and peeled, is a terrific all-
around bait.-
If a particular fish is targeted,
the angler can get specific, such
as fiddler crabs for sheepshead,
an active live shrimp for trout
or a mud minnow for flounder.
And the fun is unlimited when
the fisherman decides to use
artificial lures only. There is no
bait to mess with and, when
catching a fighting, jumping,
schooling fish, it is easier to just
take the fish off the lure, put
him in the live well or cooler,
and re-cast.
Quick, clean action while the
opportunity lasts.


The hand towel
A real handy piece of helpful
equipment is the small hand
towel. This is a real life saver
when you are in a flurry of
fishing activity and you have
bait residue on your hand or
when you get "slimed" by a
fish. Keep the towel. on your
non-dominant side, in a belt.
loop or such, and use it to


quickly clean off your hands so
you can stay on top of the
action. Don't miss 'hat
schooling fish.
.t OK, summer is here. So are
the fish. Let's grab our gear and
head out for some saltwater
fishing. "Ya just never know
what you're gonna catch!"

Bald Eagle bass
tourney results...
Richie Barnes and Paul
Akridge took first place with a
total catch of 15.03 pounds
during the.eighth week of the
Bald Eagle bass tournament,
which had a total of 47 boats
out on Santa Fe Lake last week.
In second place was the team
of Donn House and Keith
Chapman with 11.68 pounds
and in third was Shane and
Stanley O'Neil with 9.06
pounds. Fourth place went to"
Robert Hall and Scotty Anders
at 7.43 pounds.
This week's largest fish was a
4.88-pounder, caught by Barnes
and Akridge.
The 20-week tournament
takes place every Wednesday.
To qualify for the overall prize,
you must fish at least half of the
tournament, so there is still
pleni\ of time to get in. See
