On July 15, the Union County Public Library was transformed Into the Hogwarts
School of Wizardary to celebrate the release of the new installment into the Harry
Potter collection. "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" was distributed to 30
lucky recelpents who had reserved a copy of the much anticiapted book. More
than 150 people Joined In the celebration. In the top photo, Marshall Riggs

gearing up for the return of
more than 2,200 students to its
halls and classrooms this fall.
Lake Butler Elementary
School Principal Linda Johns
said four new portables have
been added at LBES this year.
The buildings will help the
_school accommodate the more
than 950 students expected this
year. "We are literally filled to
capacity this year," said Johns.
"We are using every room we
havee"
John said another change
parents will -see is the addition
of seven new teachers. "These
teachers were brought in to
help us meet class size
reduction requirements," said
Johns. Five other teachers will
take the place of those who
have moved on.
One thing that will not
change is the way students
arrive and leave the school.
"Parents should drop off and
pick up their children using the
-bus ramp:" said Johns. "The
procedure is the s-aTe'as it has-
been in the past."
Parents arriving to pick up
their children by car are asked
to proceed up the bus ramp.
This is the large driveway
located between the main
school building and the
kindergarten portables..As you
pull up to the curb, teachers
and administrators will'be
standing by -to- open car doors
and get children safely into the
vehicle.
---Johns-suggests that parents
allow students to go-to-schooi
on the first day like they will
.- the rest-of the year.. "If your
planning on letting your child
ride the bus to school, let them
do it on the first day," said
Johns. "This will help them get
used to the idea."
For parents that want to
know what teacher their child
will have during the 2005-06
school year, Johns said
classroom rosters will be
posted i.i the cafeteria on the
afternoon of Friday, July 29.
Johns also wanted to remind
parents of kindergarten
students that they will. have a
different first day of school
than the rest of LBES students.
"Kindergarten students will


Kindergarten students will
be broken up into two groups.
Half of one class will come to
school on Monday, Aug. 8,
and Tuesday, Aug. 9. The
second half will attend class on
Wednesday, Aug. 10, and
Thursday, Aug. I 1. The entire
class will be brought together
on Friday, August 12. From
there the students will attend
class as normal.
Before kindergarteners begin
class, their teachers and
parents will have an
opportunity to meet one
another. On Thursday, Aug. 4,
'and Friday, Aug. 5, parents
will be invited to talk with
their child's teacher. "This will
let the parent meet their child's
teacher," said Johns. "It will
also let the teacher get a
perspective on the student as
well."
While there are no big
changes at LBES, Lake Butler
Middle School will experience
one big one. School officials
have decided to add a seventh
period to the school day.
"While we are not extending
the school day, we will be
adding an extra class," said.
LBMS Assistant Principal
Lynn Bishop. "We've taken
away a little time from each
class in order to accomplish
this."
Bishop said officials took a
few minutes from each of the
current six periods, including
homeroom, to add the
additional period. The extra
period will help the school in a
new pilot program called the
:Continues Improvement
Model.
In a letter to faculty and staff
Principal Mark Bracewell
expressed his hope that the
program would bring the
school an A grade.
"We are optimistic that this
process will help us get that
"little' extra" student
achievement needed to move
us to an A grade," said
Bracewell. The school is
working in cooperation with
the Northeast Florida
Educational Consortium to
implement the program.

City lays out its tentative 2005-06 budget


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer

On July 11, city of Lake
Butler commissioners got
their first look at the city's
tentative budget for the 2005-.
06 fiscal year.
City Manager Richard Tillis
presented the more than $2.4
million budget in a packet that
showed not only the budget,
but the city's future goals as
well. "The annual budget is a
planning document," said
Tillis. "This is an outline of
What the board wishes to see
for its citizens during the next
twelve months."
" The budget is a decrease of
$592,831 from last year's
budget. This decrease is in
great part to proposals like the
new city hall building, the
Main'. Street sewer
rehabilitation and Eastside
Park budgets not being a part
* of this year's budget.
The thing that has not
changed is the city's ad.
valorem tax rate. If approved
by city commissioners, the rate
would remain at 2.25 mils for
the 2005-06 fiscal year. It also
proposes to leave the same
water and sewer rates in place.
Solid waste fees would remain
the same as well.
The budget is divided into
four separate categories. The
city's general fund will
account for $687,625. The
utility fund operations portion
will take up $928,570. The city


has allotted $750,000" for the
Community .Development
Block Grant Housing
Restoration project. The final
$79,873 will go floor
redevelopment and other
projects.
While the budget does not
propose raising the ad valorem
tax, it is projected the city's
revenues will increase by 9.5
percent in the coming year:
These estimates are based on
information provided by the'
Union County Property
Appraiser's Office. The
increase will give the city more
than $55,000 more revenue
than in the previous year.
One large increase in
revenue the city will see is
from the increase in the
communications services tax.
Last year the commission
voted to raise the tax. t'o 5.1
percent. Last year the "city
.projected it would receive
$54,000-Triii th ir-tax- --T-his -
year the city is projecting
$135,000. This is a 148 percent
increase over the previous
year. ,
Expenses from the general
fund include $660 per month
to Mayor Brantley Crawford,
$635 per month to Vice-Mayor
Jimmy Beasley and $605 per
month to each remaining
commissioner. In total, it is a
5.4 percent increase over -last
year. Commissioner's salaries
will cost the city $1,920 more
than it did last year.
Forty percent of Tillis'


salary comes from the fund as
well. Of his $78,013 salary,
$31,205 will come from the
general fund. Another 35
percent comes from the water
utility revenue. The remaining
25 percent is pulled from the
sewer division revenue.
Fire Chief Mike Banks will


receive an increase as well.
Banks' salary will go from
$3,000 per year to $4,200 per
year. This is a 40 percent
increase from the previous
year. The budget is also
allocating $5,500 to pay
volunteer fire fighters for
responding to fires and fire


drills. This -is a 31 percent
increase over 2004-05.
Another area the city is
being forced to increase is in
the fire department's FICA and
Medicare line items. The city
will pay $620 in FICA for the

certain areas were necessary,
others had to be cut to make up
for the increase. The
department's maintaince. and
repair budget has been cut to
$5,000. This is down $2,000
from the previous year. The
department's education and

--points out some of the projects
the city has completed in the
last year.

The report also showed how
the city had spent only 416,751
more than it originally
planned. According to Tillis'
figures, the building was
constructed for $83.03 per
square foot.
"The average cost per
square foot for a commercial
structure in today's market is
$130-$160 per square foot,"
said Tillis.
The report also showed that
the city is .currently in
discussions with the Florida
Department of Corrections
(FDOC) to take over the
Reception and Medical
Center's water treatment
facility.
"We have been verbally
notified that our proposal is an
acceptable approach," said
Tillis. "FDOC is budgeting for
their portion of the expense to
make the necessary
renovations to the facility."
In his report to the
commission, Tillis also
included several projects he
.would like to see accomplished
before he retires in two and
half years. Among these were
the following.

prior to my becoming city
manager, general fund reserves
total $142,006," said Tillis.
"Today these funds totaled
$539,103." According to Tillis,
this is a 78 percent increase:
He credits the increase to the
way budgeting is done.
"I'm very conservative with
our revenue projections, while
being very liberal with our
expense projections," said
Tillis. "This has been the best
approach in the past, and I feel
strongly it is best for the


future."

School board/teachers Elizabeth

approve contract Baptist hos


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On July 12, the Union
County School Board and the
district's teachers' union
reached an agreement for
teachers' salaries for the 2005-
06 school year.
According' to school board
Finance Director Mike
Shockley, the increase
averages 5.25 percent per
teacher. This averages out to
more than $1,800 per teacher.
"Teachers voted 76-2 in
favor of the contract," said
Shockley. "The contact reflects
a 3 percent increase over the
2005 fiscal year scale."
One highlight of the contract
is the increase in beginning
teachers' salaries. A beginning
teacher with a bachelor's
degree will now start out at
$28,000. Also, salaries will be
renegotiated each year of the
contract.
In total the district will pay
out more than $6.7 million in
teaching salaries during the
2005-06 school year. This
includes supplemental pay
scales for teachers taking on
various roles such as athletic
director, head coach and
advisor. Depending upon the
position, the scale ranges from
$150 to $5,335 per year.
The supplement also has
incentives for those groups


reaching high levels. Any
teacher whose team wins a
district championship will
receive an additional five
percent of their supplement
amount. State championships
earn them an additional 10
percent and national
championships earn them 15
percent.
A scale in the report shows
that 32.26 percent of all Union
County -teachers have been
with the district five years or
'less. This is the highest
percentage in the scale. Second
highest are teachers with six to
10 years. They make up 20.65
percent. Teachers with 16 to
20 years come in third with
14.84 percent.
Total salaries will cost the
district an additional $337,181
during the fiscal year.
Supplements comprise
$145,367 of the total budget.
FICA, retirement and health
insurance will cost the district
an additional $1.3 million
dollars..
According a report from
Shockley, the average teacher
salary in Union County is
$34,186. TIhe highest paid
teacher in the county brings in
$51,572, while starting
teachers will begin at $28,000.

a copy of the policy, which
may be reviewed by any
interested party. Children may
buy lunch for $1.50 for
elementary, $1.75 for middle
and high schools. Breakfast is
available at all three schools

a.m. at LBES.
The following household
size and income criteria will be
used for determining
eligibility. Children from
families whose income is at or
below the levels shown are
eligible for free or reduced
price meals.
Family application forms are
being sent to homes with a
letter to parents or guardians.
To apply for free or reduced
price meals, households should
fill out one application for all
children in the home and
return it to the school. Only
one application is required per
family. The information
provided on the application
will be used for the purpose of
determining eligibility and
may be verified at any time
during the school year by
school or other program
officials.
Households that receive
Food Stamps or TANF
(Temporary Assistance to
Needy Families) will receive a
letter automatically approving
individual children for free
breakfast/lunch through the
Direct Certification Program
approved by HRS.
If a household that receives
Food Stamps or TANF does
not receive an automatic
approval notice they should fill
aout a Freand Reduced priced
meal application (may get the
application from any school or


the county office) and return it
to their child's school.
For the school officials to
determine eligibility, all other
households must provide the
following information listed on
the application:
(1) The total monthly
income must be listed by the
amount received by
each household member
receiving income and the type
of income it is (such as wages,
child support, etc.)
(2) Names of all household
members.
(3) Social Security number
of the adult signing the
application or the word

that the information provided
-is correct.
Households that list income
information and receive meal

school any decrease in
household size and any
increases in income over $50

Households that list a food
stamp or TANF case number
must report to the school when

the year. Parents have one
month from the day their child
enters school to return a
completed application to the
Principal's office for
approval. Applications must
be received within forty-five
calendar days from the first
day of school. For example, if
a child enters, school on
Thursday, August 4, 2005,
their meal application should
be received .by Friday,
September 16, 2005. On
Monday, September 19, 2005,
if the child's application has
not been received their meal
status will become full pay.
Parents will be responsible for
any meal charges that occur
prior to the approval of the
application.
Under provisions of the free.
and reduced price meal policy
the Supervisor of Food Service,

informal basis. If the parent

appeal, he may make a request
either orally or in writing to
Bobbie Morgan, 55 SW 6th
Street, Lake Butler, Fl 32054,
telephone number (386) 496-
2045, ext. 229, for a hearing to
appeal the decision. The
policy contains an outline of
the hearing procedure.
If a household member
becomes unemployed or if the
household size changes, the
school should be contacted.
Such changes make the
children of the household
eligible for reduced price
meals, or for additional
benefits such as free for them,
if the household income falls
at or below the levels shown
above.
In certain cases foster
children are also eligible for
these benefits. If a household
has foster children living with
them and wishes to apply for
such meals for them, the
household should contact the
school for more information.
Unless indicated on the
application, the information on
the free and reduced price
meal application may be used
by the school system in
determining whether the child
is eligible for other educational
programs.
Meals may be paid for daily
or in advance. It is the
responsibility of the parent to
keep track of the balance in
their child's account. A
$15.00 service charge will be
assessed on all returned
checks.
If returned checks are not
paid they will be turned over to
the State Attorney's Office for
collection, where an additional
charge will be due. On the first
occasion that children have no
money for lunch, a full meal
will be served to them,.
Children must pay for that one
meal before they will be
allowed to receive another full
meal in the cafeteria without
payment. If children have not
paid for that one meal and'they
have no money for lunch on
another day, a snack of a
peanut butter sandwich and a
half-pint of milk will be served
to them in the place of a full
meal.

Alzheimer's
Association
embarks on
campaign
The Central & North Florida
Alzheimer's Association
Chapter is embarking on an
immediate educational and
philanthropic campaign
seeking to raise corporate
assistance for its many
programs presently serving
persons diagnosed with
Alzheimer's in our 31 county
area. The State of Florida
estimates that our region has
approximately 100,000
Floridians who are affected by
this disease and other
dementias.
Age is the greatest risk
factor for Alzheimer's disease.
As the population of Florida
and the baby-boom generation
continues to mature, there will
be an estimated 44 percent
growth rate in persons
diagnosed with Alzheimer's by
2025.
Every American will be
confronted by the greatest
crisis in health care in his or
her lifetime as costs related to
Alzheimer's continue to soar.
The National Institute on
Aging estimates that the latest
direct and indirect cost of
caring for Alzheimer's
diagnosed individuals is in
excess of $100 billion dollars
per year. The average family
lifetime cost of care for an
individual with Alzheimer's is
conservatively estimated at
more than $174,000 per person


diagnosed. Medicare costs for
beneficiaries with Alzheimers
are expected to increase 75
percent from $91 billion to
more than $160 billion in
2010.
Corporations which have a
robust business presence in
central and north Florida will
be sent information regarding
the myriad state of the art
programs provided by the
Chapter. Referral and
information services will also
be made available so that

businesses might assist their
customers and employees.
The association is asking
major corporations and private
individuals to help with cash
contributions, volunteer time,
and appropriate in-kind
donations. Douglas Allen, the
president and CEO of the
regional Alzheimer's chapter
recently stated, "We have a
moral obligation to take care
of our greatest generation and
to provide for others who also
suffer from this disease
because it's the right thing to
do. We are grateful for every
financial gift. Our work has
helped thousands of families
cope with unimaginable
hardships and we urgently
need to maintain high levels of
service to those in need."

other aquaplaning activities are
exciting and challenging
sports. However, .ike all fast-

Residents of Starke have reason to be
proud of their city fire department because
of its dedicated employees and their deter-
mination to serve the people of the com-
munity in their area of responsibility. The
department's primary mission is to fight
fires, but firefighters can often be found at
the scenes of traffic accidents or other
places of trauma.
In 29 years of service with the Starke
Fire Department, Chief Dwayne Hardee
has delivered five babies in response to
calls for assistance. While midwifery isn't
part of his job description, his training as
an emergency medical technician provides
some knowledge in the field, and his desire-
__tohelp-others-is a driving force in his life.
City commissioners recognize the need
for a new fire station in a new location.
The present building, one block off Call
Street, has served the community well, but
the site is now in a congested area that
hampers the egress of fire fighting equip-
ment when time is of the essence. Fire
trucks need the ability to exit the station
and move rapidly in any of the four direc-
tions; the present location is ill prepared
for a rapid exit in any direction.
It is also too small to house the rolling
stock now owned by the city. Lee Vincent,
former city manger and Ken Sauer, current
city manager, recognize the need for a new
fire department building, possibly incorpo-
rating city administrative offices and the
police department in a new location.
Vincent was adamant in moving the fire
department to the site of the Bradford
County Public Library on Jackson Street
when the facility is relocated and the lot
becomes available. A new library is to be
built on Pratt Street.
Even though Sauer doesn't rule out the
library site- for a new fire station, he feels,
the city should explore long-range plans
for city functions and review city needs in
4ight of current trends.'I-f o'6efea st"W.v
of all city buildings and space, requirge-
ments before making a final decision on
moving the fire department.
Sauer is correct in seeking to peer into
the future-for locating.city functions rather
than building a fire station in a poor choice
---of locations from the first get-go. The pro-
posed library site for a new fire station
would be a small, improvement over the
present site because the lot is too small, the
present library building doesn't lend itself
to renovation into a fire station and dump-
ing traffic onto narrow residential streets
stymies rapid response in emergencies.
City administrators should look else-,
where for a new fire house location. It's
time to abandon expediency for long-range
planning, which has often been in short
supply, and attempt to envision what the
situation will be 10 or more years from
now.
Starke is moving south and the, fire sta-
tion should move with it, to a location that.
will provide rapid egress to all sections of
the community. .
The current station house \\as built for
another era with two bays for fire trucks
much smaller than those of today, with
utility space on the ground floor and office
and living quarters on the second floor.
The second floor is comfortably furnished
and "clean as a pin," with the ;stairwell
opening into a large dayroom-type space,
equipped with a 60-inch television set and
other amenities for firefighters that aren't
otherwise engaged. The television set and
other items of equipment were bought and
paid for by the firemen.
There is a small, efficient kitchen for
preparing snacks and meals for men on
duty, with cooking done by one of the fire-
men. The office is in a back corner of the
building on the second floor in a rather
out-of-the-way location. When the alarm
sounds, the men have to run down a nar-


row stairway to reach the trucks.
Chief Hardee and his men maintain the
building splendidly, keeping it clean and in
good repair, but the facility leaves much to-
be desired for housing personnel around
the clock, speedy exiting when fire strikes,
enclosed shelter for fire fighting equip-
ment and entering main traffic arteries to
reach fires or other emergency situations.
Wherever the new station is built, an old
nemesis, the CSX Railroad, poses a prob-
lem for which an answer has not been
found. The city can't afford a station on
both sides of the-railroad, and yet, when a
.train blocks the crossings, fire equipment
can only sit and wait, along with emer-
gency medical vehicles, law enforcement
officials and the general public. The fire`
department has stationed a fire truck at the
old power plant (on the east side of the
railroad) for use when the crossings are
blocked, but no personnel are stationed
there.
Hardee comes across as a caring public
servant who sees his work as a calling, and
plans to stay on the job past ordinary
retirement time, having served 29 of the
required 30 years. He wvas born in Starke,
attended local schools and graduated from
Bradford High School in 1974. He was the
first, or among the first, 18-year-olds to be
employed in 'the correctional system. A
friend talked him into leaving corrections
and going to work for the Starke Fire
Department. He was promoted to Fire
Chief in 1985.
Hardee has taken advantage of educa-
tional opportunities with certificates in
related fields, including arson investiga-
tion, criminal justice, fire science and
emergency medical training.
Hardee doesn't have much spare time'
since he works part-time as a medical tech-
nician for the county's emergency medical
services department, but when time
M' aPll,,ittls to participate in shooting'
Sskee.t.,H,s married to the former, Beth.
Jackson and they have three children,
Ashley Moore, Karen Moore Crook and
Evan Hardee.
The Starke ,Fire Department operates
with nine full-time employees, including
the chief and assistant chief, both of whom
work regular 24-hour shifts, and 10 hourly
employees. Three firemen are on duty
24/7. If a full-time employee is off the job,
an hourly employee fills the shift, and
receives $7 per hour for the shift. The
hourly employees receive no other bene-
fits. When a vacancy occurs in the full-
time ranks, the position is advertised and
applicants tested. If hourly employees
apply for the full-time position, they have
-to follow the full routine, competing on an
even footing with other applicants. While
the system doesn't seem fair to current
part-time employees, it insuires the city
gets the best of the applicants.
The starting salary (in Starke) is about
'$24,000 per year, competitive for small-
town fire departments, Hardee said, but as
much as $5,000 per year below salaries
paid in larger .departments, such as,
Jacksonville and Gainesville. While Starke
currently has a stable personnel situation,
it has also been used for training programs
for young firefighters who transfer to larg-
er systems once they are certified. Hardee
says it isn't unusual for firemen to return to
the Starke department- after working in
larger departments because they dislike
commuting, see less danger on the job or
just prefer to work near home.
The SFD generates no revenue for the
city, therefore it represents a cost to resi-
dents, whether owners or renters, but few
would want to live or operate businesses in
the community without the protection
afforded by the fire department. Probably
more than 50 percent of the $649,417
budget goes for salaries and benefits, and


we residents are getting a bargain for out
"buck." The low salaries for trained per-
sonnel, corApared to salaries in larger
.towns, and the limited number of full-time.
employees keep overall costs to a mini-
mum.
Because of its presence and competence,
the cost of fire insurance is affordable. Out
in the county, fire insurance costs much
more and, in some-cases, is unobtainable.
There have been three memorable fires
in Starke since I moved here in February
1978: the Call Street fire, the Sawyer Gas
fire and the George T. Huggins home fire.
At the time of the Call Street fire (1979?)
Court Street ran adjacent to the east .side-of
the old courthouse (now part of the SFCC
'parking lot), with Green Buick Co. on the
northwest comer and a couple of other
businesses adjacent to the Telegraph build-
ing. Fire broke out about daylight Sunday
morning. The fire department realized
there was no way to save the buildings
west of the Telegraph building if it burned,
so their resources were directed to what
amounted to a firewall (the Telegraph's-
west wall).
Chief Hardee feels the fire was success-
fully fought in saving other stores on the
block, even though there were property
losses.
Fire erupted at the Sawyer Gas facility'
on Edwards Road, about one block off
U.S. 301, late one afternoon, fueled by LP
gas. It created a very dangerous situation,
especially since a large storage tank filled
with gas was within a few feet of the fire.
The fire department concentrated its
efforts on keeping the storage tank cool
and was successful in preventing an explo-
sion that would have rocked the town.
Owner Charles Sawyer moved the facility
to vacant land on North Temple Avenue
subsequent to the fire.
The, Huggin_,home fire could have been ".
a disaster.' George and Bernice Huggins "
(deceased), and 'guests, had eaten dinner.-
and, since it was a pleasant evening, decid-
ed to sit in the shady backyard. They had
vacated the house and seated in chairs
when the house virtually exploded into
flame. A gas valve had given way, allow-
ing gas to escape throughout the house,
and 'when ignited, it created a fireball that
shook the neighborhood. Fortunately,
everyone was out of the house and no one
was injured.
The fire department was unable to save
the house in this case; it couldn't have been
saved under any circumstances, but fire-
men and friends, were able to save some
furniture and kept the fire from spreading.
Developer Guy Andrews bought the lot'
after the fire, incorporating it into the busi-
ness property on Orange Street.
Each year, coincidental with the first
University of Florida football home game
Saturday, the fire department collects
money at intersections from motorists
passing through town. While most people
think the money is being collected to aug-
ment fire department amenities, firemen
are actually collecting for the Jerry Lewis
muscular dystrophy drive, a nationwide
charity worthy of everyone's donation.
One of the primary duties of a good&
administrator is to keep departmental
problems within the department and main-
tain good relations with personnel on the
one hand and with city commissioners on
the other. Chief Hardee is a low-profile
administrator who supports his employees
and maintains, harmony with the city
administration. He plans to extend his
tenure beyond his 30-year anniversary
later this year, ,and that is good news for
*everyone. ; '

I LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Reader thinks
something
stinks in
county
government
DearEditor:
Well they have done it again.
With the exclamation that "it's
a no brainer" by John 'Cooper,


three members of the Bradford'
County Commission voted to
put a satellite office in the
south end of the county.
It really is, a no brainer
because if enough brains had
been used,, the monies 'that are
going toward this fiasco could
be better spent in a number of
different ways and toward the
betterment of the taxpayers of
Bradford County instead of the
unnecessary increase of the size
of county government.,


I can understand why John
Cooper voted for' this no
brainer and why John Hersey
voted for this .no brainer but
why the representative of the
poorest, most neglected district
in the county, Ross Chandler,
voted for this without using
his brains is 'beyond my
comprehension.
Frankly I smell a pile of
manure somewhere other than
where it should be.
,The rationalization that this


little project is only going to
cost you and me the taxpayer
just a few thousand is stupid
on the face of it. Anyone who
believes what Cooper and
Hersey are spilling out on us
needs to go somewhere and
finds some more intelligence.
What I really believe has
happened is that someone has
traveled out of the sunshine
and under the cloak of darkness
made promises that may or may
not be kept.


Why is it so hard for some
of our elected officials to be,
honest and aboveboard about
what they do? Wasn't that the
promise they made to us when
they got our vote?

Citizen of
Lawtey says
'enough is-
enough'
Dear Editor:
The citizens in the city of
La% te) have had enough.
In the name of "progress" we
have suffered through a blown I
transformer, destroyed roads
(continuous), broken water
lines (almost daily); numerous
cut phone lines and the sewer
project is not done.
On July 19, we were greeted
'with a "boil water, alert."
Why? Because of yet another
contractor mistake. How many e
times in the last year, has this
contractor or his designated,
spokesperson, assured the
citizens, a problem would be
taken care of and six weeks
later, it still exists.
The problems the residents
on Carter Road suffered should :
have been a wake up call for all
of us, .but how quickly we
forgot, until it reached our
neighborhoods.

Starke Fire Department always on call


Volunteer fire
fighters serve
the
community
Dear Editor:
From time to time letters
appear in which the writer
leaves the impression that the
volunteer firefighters are
ineffectual and the monies used
to support them mere a waste.
Many people probably aren't
aware of the degree of training
we have or the job we do. The
expertise we have among our
volunteers is extraordinary. We
have people trained in rescuing
large animals wherever the
incident is, hazardous material
technicians, clergy, EMTs,
paramedics, active and retired
firefighters, wildfire experts,
and many of us have our "red
card," which means we have the
training required should we be
needed on forest fires anywhere :
in the country.
Although we are seen as
"firefighters," the simple truth "
-is that we do so much more.
We/are the ones responsible for
making sure an accident scene
is safe before ,the medical
people can begin. We are the
ones responsible for the safe
removal of people trapped in
their vehicles. If an ambulance
is summoned to someone's
house, normally we are called
to go along.
Many of our members have
special training required for
them to be able to. drive an
ambulance so that if both r
EMTs are needed to work on,
the patient we can help in
getting them to the hospital.
Frequently we are first on
the scene and our training
allows us to, start, medical
initial assistance. We are there
to provide, traffic control,
manpower, and trained medical
assistance, as necessary.
Fires of all sorts, suicides,
domestic violence, rescues, ;
these are where we serve.
While Forestry was fighting.
the, Sante Fe fire, we were
helping with .evacuation .
notices and looking for fires
started by the hot ash thrown
great distances as happens in
wildfire J *.. 7, .1 r ". '
.' During last L ear's btrricanes
we.recalled outto CleaL road
way s of dangerous debris and
responded to the normal
emergencies. Afterward, we
checked for downed lines and
cleared .the roads enough. to
make' them passable. We
checked on people who we
knew to be shut-ins and helped
in the distribution of
emergency supplies.
If we have more storms this
year, the county's volunteerr
firefighters will be there, doing
our jobs..
All of the things we do
mean that we get up from meals
unfinished, leave family
functions, get out of bed at.
strange hours. We deal with'all
manner of tragedies and have
seen fatalities that star in our
minds long after the incident
All of our hours. and
inconveniences are volunteered .
The maintenance and
improvement of each station is
primarily paid for by money
raised by that station. Ta\
money is used to maintain the
equipment up to safety
standards, money well spent. :
We save lives, property, and
assist in the community
because you are our neighbors.

Continued from p. 1B

the Goodmans have expressed
their desire to cooperate with
the committee and have their
house chosen. The family has
also been supportive __o_Lahe
festival the past.
"One year they served cider
to people who were walking
by," Lehman said, "They've
been active in the festival for a
few years."
Choosing- the festival's
image was the main goal of the
committee's July 14 meeting,
but member Chuck Kramer
also discussed a planned event
that will hopefully attract a
crowd on the night of Oct. 15.
Kramer said his wife. Mar\.
came up with the idea of
having a "tailgate" party at the
\Wo,'imen' Club on the
Saturday night of the festival.
The Wnomen's Club would be
decor.ied in a sports-related
theme and here would be food
and a big-.creen TV, a-welI as
sports tri ila and other types of
fun activities,
"We wanted something that
didn't have age discrimination
attached to it," Kramer said,
alluding to the problem of
coming up with an activity to


offer on the Saturday night of
the festival that'appeals to all
ages.
Kramer said the committee
will also invite area high
school bands and cheerleaders
to participate, which would, in
turn, attract those children's
parents to the ev-ent.
G.ommitte --- member Ted
Barber suggested maybe
staging a fun competition
between the high school bands.
"I think this will get
different people Tiif thi
.community involved,"
Andrews Center Director
Cheryl Canova said. "When
you get kids involved, parents
are involved."


Canova said Cindy Futch is
planning to recruit former
Bradford High School
cheerleaders to participate, as
well.
An admission of $5 is
planned for the tailgate party.
Lehman is planning to buy
tickets for the festival vendors
so they, too, can enjoy the fun,
Canova said.
Kramer said the event would
probably be planned for a time
.frame of6-10 p.m ..----
,We're pretty excited about
it," said Kramer, adding that if
the first-time event is
moderately successful, it
would return in 2006.

-Stre-rand ee Tane, to only
name a few, all tell the same
stories. Weeks have passed and
access to--thei-r-TiJeff is a
continuous-challenge.
'-How much mote?
Tor the past seven to eight
weeks, Fifth Street has been a
mess, residents have had to
park on Highway 225 and .walk
home. The medical transport
van can't pick up handicap and
sick residents at their doors.
-Several times had Lawtey
fife trucks or Bradford County
rescue needed to respond, it
would have been impossible.
-The mistakes that are made
daily don't require rocket
science to fix.
Solution:
1. Invest in a locator to find
water lifns beforou diig;
2.-Look -for power lines
before you dig;,
3. Locate phone lines before
you dig;
4. Hire and compensate in a

5. Stop telling the same lies.
The residents are sick of
hearing them.

Generator
purchasers

should be
aware
Dear Editor:
Many people- wantr a
"hurricane --generator." but
before you run out and buy
one, remeTmber you- need a
device called a transfer switch.
This needs to be installed by a
licensed electrician or the
power company.
Now you have to calculate
the generator size. Some loads
are resistive and some
inductive. A clothes dryer is
both. This is why most
homeowners get the wrong
generators.
A person needs to
understand all this before
commencing with the purchase.

School supplies are tax free beginning Saturday


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
. Telegraph Staff Writer


' Back-to-school shopping
will be a little' less expensive
next week thanks to the tax-
free holiday being offered b.
the state again this year.
The holiday, which extends
from Saturday. July 23.
through Sunday. July 31, %ill
provide tax-free status to some
common items parents find
themselves purchasing prior to
the beginning of each school
year.
The tax-free status, w which
includes exemption from both
state and local option sales
taxes, applies to the following
items.
* Eligible clothing items
with an individual sales price
of $50 or less.
* Most books with an
individual sales price of $50 or
tess.
'. Eligible school supplies
with an individual sales price
of $10 or less.
. The state has provided a
specific, and extensive, list of
items that are not taxable
during the holiday to
businesses that sell those
items. When it comes to school
supplies, how the product is
labeled often plays a role in
whether or not it is tax exempt.
For example, a package
labeled "pens" is exempt, but


one labeled "markers" is not.
The same applies to
"notebooks," which are,
exempt, and "notepads," which
are not.


Be aware, therefore, that not
everything that could be
considered a school supply,
like correction fluid, is exempt.
However, for those items that'


are exempt, there is no limit to
the amount of items that can be
purchased. The exemption is
based upon the sales price of
each tax-exempt item, not the


total sales amount on the
receipt..
There is no restriction on the
number of eligible items that
can be purchased at one time.


Eligible items remains tax-free
regardless of who is
purchasing the merchandise or
for what purpose.

JROTC cadets enjoy having camp back at Blanding


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Junior Reserve Officers'
Training Corps (JROTC)
cadets from Bradford and
Union County high schools
have been participating in
some of the same activities this
summer as they did last
summer. The only difference is


M-


this year those cadets can hear
the booming sounds of artillery
being fired as they have
returned to the Camp Blanding
Joint Training Center for the
Florida JROTC annual
leadership camp (Camp
Seminole).
Camp Blanding had not
hosted Camp Seminole since
2002, due to the war in Iraq
that prevented the Florida

Army National Guard from
providing the services
necessary to support the high
school cadets. Cadets were
forced to find other locales for
their annual summer camps.
BHS and UCHS cadets took
part in camps held at the Camp
Shands Boy Scouts facility
outside of Melrose.
However, 1,038 cadets from
65 high schools throughout the
state returned to Blanding this
week for the largest Camp
Seminole ever.
"This is the closest thing to a
military event for the kids,"
said Lt. Col. David King, a
BHS JROTC instructor. "They
get to come out here and stay
in barracks, eat in a mess hall
and things like that."
Several local cadets were
looking forward to going to
Blanding, which -is also
hosting National Guard units
undergoing annual training
periods.
"I was very excited." said
Cody Tempest, a UCHS cadet.
"I was looking forward to
training on a real military
base."
Barron Warner, a BHS
cadet, said he was wanting to
experience Army life,
something that Camp Shands
could not provide.
"(Last year) was nothing
like what I'm going through
right now," Warner said. "It's
interesting and a little bit
harder than what Boy Scout
camp is."
BHS cadet Chris Grace
agreed that the experience at
Blanding was different from
that at Camp Shands last year.
E ven one
similarity-rappelling off of a
tower-appeared to be
different to Grace. He admitted
he was very nervous prior to
his rappel attempt on Monday.
"I did it last year, but I don't
think (the tower) was as high,"
Grace said, eyeing the one
erected at Blanding.
Tempest's company was at
the tower prior to Grace's
group. Tempest said he was a
little nervous looking over the
edge of the tower, but he
enjoyed his trip back down to
the ground.
"Exhilarating. Exciting. It
was fun," Tempest said.
There are several activities
for cadets at Camp Seminole,
but the rappel tower seems to
be the one everyone looks
forward to, whether it's with
excitement or trepidation.
County UCHS cadets Jared
Brand, Maria Jeffrey and Sara
Young among those excited
about rappelling.
"I love rappelling," Brand


said.
"We are all rappel freaks,"
Jeffrey said, adding that she
could not wait until her turn
atop the tower.
"I was nervous the first time
I did it (last year)," Young
said, "but I'm actually looking
forward to doibg it .because
I've had that first experience
and I freaked out. I think I'll
do better this time."
Besides rappelling, cadets
navigate a confidence, or
obstacle, course, participate in
leadership reaction exercises in
which team leaders and team
members must work together
to achieve their goals, take
math, science and- drug
demand reduction classes and
learn land navigation and
survival skills, as well-as water
safety. -
Marksmanship courses were
not offered this year as they
have been in the past, but this
year's Camp Seminole
featured the new "squad
challenge." The squad
challenge consists, of such
activities as climbing a rock
wall, navigating through a
"spider's web," or entangled

BHS grad is a national champion roping header


Ryan Carter, 22, has
been roping since
the age of 7

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

He finally got the
opportunity he was seeking on
the national stage and Ryan
Carter, who grew up in
Bradford County, delivered by
winning a national
championship.
Carter teamed up with
Kollin VonAhn, a teammate of
Carter's at Southeastern
Oklahoma State University, to
win the roping championship
at the College National Finals
Rodeo on June 16 in Casper,
Wyo. Carter is a header (he
ropes the steer's head) and
VonAhn is a heeler (he ropes
.,ie steer's hind legs).


"It was a really good
feeling," said Carter, a 2002
Bradford High School
graduate, who had been
awaiting an opportunity to
compete at the national finals.
Carter did not compete at the
finals during his first two years
of college, which were spent at
Northeast Oklahoma A&M.
The top three headers and
heelers from 11 different
regions in the country qualify
for the finals. Carter was
ranked fourth in his region
during his sophomore year, but
he was third in his region
during his freshman year and
still unable to go. That was
because of a rule that allows
the top headers and heelers to
choose their partners.
It looked as if Carter was not
going to qualify this past year.
Both of his horses sustained
injuries and he finished fourth
in his region. However, he was


able to compete in the finals
when one of his Southeastern
Oklahoma State teammates,
Cody McMinn, who was the
top header, broke his throwing
hand.
Montez Carter, Ryan's
mother, said her son finally got
what he deserved after
experiencing a run of bad luck.
"It was the best thing that's
ever happened to him,"
Montez Carter said. "We were
just so proud and happy for
him."
Ryan Carter said he was not
too nervous at the national
finals despite competing there
for the first time. He and
VonAhn scored in the 7-
second range during each of
their first three attempts.
Prior to the team's final
attempt, it was announced that
all Carter and VonAhn had to

It was the second

-JUC-raduate Davis to playbaseball-at--Fiorida Tech


Former Tiger players
Michael Johnson and
Miles Leslie will also
get their chances at
the next level

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Baseball or football?
.Union County High School
graduate Brandon Davis
enjoys both sports, but was not
sure which he would like the
opportunity to play in college.
He thought there was a chance
Jacksonville University would
make him an offer for football,
but a Chicago White Sox scout
convinced Davis that his future
lies in baseball instead.
Davis, with that scout's
helped, received a scholarship
from Florida Institute of
Technology, a Division II
school in Melbourne.
"It feels great," said Davis,
who will be looking to make
his mark as a pitcher.
Davis is coming off of a.
senior season at UCHS in
which he compiled 6-5 record.
He pitched 67.2 innings and
had a 1.98 ERA with 86
strikeouts.
As a batter, Davis had an
average of .368. He had 28'hits
in 76 at-bats with seven
doubles, two triples, -three
home runs and 27 RBI.
The White Sox scout saw
Davis pitch in a game against
Santa Fe. Davis said he
believes the scout was there to
watch a Santa Fe player, but
Davis' ability on the mound
caught the scout's attention.
That scout talked to several
college coaches, including
Paul Knight of Florida Tech.
Davis said the scout
supposedly told Knight the
White Sox would've drafted
Davis if his curveball was

Union County High School graduate Brandon Davis (seated) signs a letter of
intent to play baseball at Florida Institute of Technology. Davis is joined by (from

coach Terry Stroemer, brother Justin Davis and parents Darla and Bobby Davis.


Terry Stroemer said Davis
already 'has a consistent
fastball (85-88 miles per hour)
and a great breaking ball.
Stroemer said Davis, with
football out of the equation,
will be able to focus solely on
improving all of his pitches.
"That will give him a better
chance to work on all of that,"
Stroemer said.
Davis said he plans to work
on making his curve and slider
more consistent He said he has
already received help from
Knight, for whom he threw
earlier this year.
"I went down here and have
learned a lot already," Davis
said.

about the prospects of Knight
making him a better pitcher,
but he is looking forward to
taking to the mound with the
rest of his teammates behind
him. Davis said Florida Tech is
a team that rarely makes
errors.
"I'm going to love playing
for their defense," he said.
,"Their defense is one of the
best in the country."
Stroemer said he has no
doubt that Davis will
eventually be drafted to play
professional 'baseball. The
UCHS coach said Davis has
the talent and is a hard worker
who is self-motivated.
"Brandon has such a great
chance of doing things even


past college because of his
desire," Stroemer said.

were 29-26 last year, finishing

Conference.

, Davis is not the only recent
'UCHS graduate who is going
to get the chance to further his
baseball career. Michael
Johnson has accepted an offer

Stroemer said he believes
Johnson will end up playing
third base at Mars Hill. If
Johnson had played the
position every game while at
UCHS, he would've been
recognized as one of the best
third basemen in the area,
Stroemer said.
Johnson was not an
everyday third baseman
because he also pitched for the
Tigers. Stroemer said he would
not rule out Johnson getting
the opportunity to pitch at
Mars Hill. Johnson pitches in
the 85-88-mile-per-hour range
and has a great breaking ball
and great control, Stroemer
said;
Stroemer recalls how
Johnson was not that good of a
hitter during his freshman
year. Johnson ,made
tremendous strides in that area
because he's very coachable,
Stroemer said. Johnson batted
.406 this past season.

Somebody just boosted me up
and I was over the wall."
BHS cadet Chris Brown
admitted he thought the
confidence course would
provide more of a challenge
for him. He went through the
course on Monday and came
out a happy camper, so to
speak, though he was covered
in mud from crawling along
the ground underneath wire.


"It was definitely exciting,"
Brown said. "There were a lot

I would be able to get through,
but I found it was a lot easier
than'people made it out to be.
It's fun. It's real fun. I wish I

Brown was not the only
cadet to discover that reality at
Camp Seminole differed from
expectations. Courtney Combs,
a UCHS cadet, said she was
expecting more of an extreme
military-type environment.
"I was really expecting it to
-be harder than what it is, but
it's fun," Combs said. "That's
all it is. It's just fun."


Cadets, along with an instructor, cook bits of an
unidentified meat during a survival skills course.

BHS cadet Megan Starling,
a first-time summer camp
participant, said the camp had
exceeded all of her
expectations and she was
enjoying herself. She admitted
she did not think she would be
performing as well as she had.
"If I had a chance (to come
back next year), I would," said
Starling, who is a senior.
All BHS cadet Bryan
Williams, another first-time
participant, could say of his
experiences so far was, "It has
been surprising-surprisingly
fun."
King said the cadets may be
enjoying themselves now, but
there were a few who were
apprehensive about going to
the camp. A lot of that
apprehension has to do with
the fact that cadets from a
particular school are not kept
together. They are split up into
-different companies, which
forces the cadets to interact
with other cadets from
throughout the state.
"Getting together with all of
these other schools-it's like
meeting all of Florida,"
Starling said.
Said BHS cadet. Jamie Cobb:
"It's great getting to know
them-talking to them, seeing
how their lives are and seeing
how they would do things."
It's a chance to make new
friends-something Jeffrey
was looking forward to.
"I've talked to probably
everybody here," Jeffrey said.
"It's a lot of fun to get to know
people and socialize."
Master Sgt. Gene Black, a
UCHS JROTC instructor, said
that is the biggest joy he gets
at the summer
camps-watching those' new.
relationships develop.
"At the end of the week,
they're buddies," Black said.
"They know everything about
each other."
Grace said it has been an,
interesting experience for him
and he .encourages every
JROTC cadet to attend Camp

Seminole.
"It's very fun. It's something
I would recommend for every
JROTC cadet," Grace-said.
Bradford and Union County
high schools, combined, have
19 cadets at Camp Seminole
this week. Chris Crews, Chris
Olive, David Scully, Rachael
Snyder and Danielle Welsh are
also participating from BHS,
while Curtis Clemons and
Mallory Wise were also
participating from UCHS.
Camp Seminole provides
cadets with six days of
training. They are at Camp
Blanding for a total of eight
days, with one day devoted to
in-processing and another
devoted to a graduation
ceremony.
The camp is supported by
185 JROTC cadre staff
members (95 enlisted, 69
officers,' 21 civilians), 68
active Florida Army National
Guard staff and 32 Florida
Army National Guard retirees.

grown since then."
Participants at this year's
camp were divided into three
groups to work with coaches
Oakley, Craig Duerden and
Jonny Haggerty., Waters said
movement was one skill that
was stressed during the camp.
"A lot of what you learn in
camp is how to move to an
open space so that you can
receive a pass," Waters said.
Oakley said no matter the
age, the main goal of the
coaches is to allow the
campers to enjoy themselves.
"If you're not having fun,
then you're never going to
learn your skills," Oakley said.
"If you're having fun, that
makes learning enjoyable."

Soccer camp in
Keystone draws 40
of various ages

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a wet week, but a
good week, according to Rob
Oakley, one of three men from
England who worked the
Major League Soccer camp in
Keystone Heights last week,
coaching children some
fundamentals of the sport as
well as emphasizing a bit of
fun.
Oakley is in his fourth year
working with MLS camps and
was in Keystone, and Florida,
for his second year.
"I enjoy Florida except for
the storms and hurricanes," he
said.
There was quite a bit of rain
during the week, including on
the last day of the camp.
However, the rain came early
and stopped ,in time for the
participants to wrap up the
five-day camp with drills,
games and a graduation. Each
participant, upon graduation,
received a certificate, detailing
how he or she improved
throughout the camp and what
he or she needed to continue to
work on to improve as players.
Trevor Waters, who works
with the youth soccer program
in Keystone and is the new
head coach of the Keystone
Heights High School boys':
team, was instrumental in
bringing the MLS program to
Keystone. This was the sixth
year Keystone has hosted the
camp, which has attracted as
many as 60 children. This
year's camp had 40
participants, ranging in age
from 6 to 17.
"The first year we started we
had 10 kids," Waters said. "It's

The

at all, this is the name that
captures the spirit of all that is
so intriguing about hunting
with the bow and arrow. Fred

Union County connection.
Assistant coach Matt Ward is -a
UCHS graduate.
Leslie, a catcher, first
received a scholarship offer
from Tallahassee Community
College, but has since received
an offer from Indiana
University, despite the fact
Indiana coaches have not seen
him play. Stroemer said tihe
same White Sox scout who has
been working on Davis' behalf
was also involved in creating
interest for Leslie at Indiana.
Stroemer believes Leslie has
the ability to play at the
Division I level. Leslie may
not have gotten as much
publicity as other area high
school catchers, but Stroemer
said a lot of that has to do with
other coaches in the area, who
make their players appear
better than what they are.
"Therere e coaches who lie
on stats," Stroemer said..
Stroemer said Indiana or
Tallahassee Community
College will get a catcher with
outstanding defense% e skills.
"(Leslie's) got a big-league
arm right now and a big-league
release," Stroemer said.
'Leslie's also a good
offensive player who will only
get better. Stroemer said.
Leslie batted .361 this past
seasorr. He had 26 hits in 72 at-
bats with six doubles, one
triple, three home runs and 24
RBI.
Stroemer believes Leslie has
what it takes to succeed at
Indiana if he chooses to go
there.
"I've said all along that
Miles Leslie is a Division I
baseball player," Stroemer
said.

Bear hunted instinctively. He
was quick and deadly accurate.
He was one of the few who
was indeed a legend in his own
lifetime.
This past Saturday, July 16,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
conducted a free bowhunting
course at the Fred Bear
Archery Plant in Gainesville. I
turned into the driveway
between two giant bear statues,
which were standing guard at
the factory entrance. Fitting.
We met in the cafeteria, 17
of us from all over central and
north Florida, with three
instructors who presented the


Keystone Heights, was
canceled, due to lightning
across Lake Santa Fe.
For safety reasons, Joey
Tyson, tournament director,
called -the tournament off
around 6:30 p.m. Several
fishermen hung around the

landing, however, with a few
boats venturing out around
7:15 p.m. after the. storm
passed. Several nice-sized fish
were caught, including two 5-
pounders, a 6-pouider, and an
8-pounder, which was caught'
by Roger Roebuck.


bowhunting course, starting at
8 a.m.
Bowhunting
instruction
After the introduction, each
student had the opportunity to
stand, show his bow and
equipment and give a brief
comment about himself. Our
particular group was typical,
with a few rookies, a couple of
novices (me), some
intermediates and a group of
four real pros from Bradford
County.
Each of our three instructors
had been bowhunting for more
than 20 years, with one, Terry
Neenan, being a 30-year
bowhunter who had some great
stories.


The course
We covered all the
bases-the fundamentals of
bowhunting, safety, hunting
techniques, stalking, shot
placement, trailing and
sportsmanship. We also
watched three or four videos,
including one on tree stand
safety, which did a great job of
demonstrating how important
the safety harness is. It was
pointed out that about one of

every three hunters who climbs
a tree stand will experience a
fall of some magnitude in the
woods in his lifetime. A safety
harness, properly used, can be
a life saver. (Note: Do NOT
attach this to your waist only!)
Another area of note was
animal recovery. Interestingly,
a four-year study by the
Archery Manufacturers
Organization concluded that
approximately 87 percent of all
bowhunted, animals were
retrieved. This is amazing.
Batting .870 is unheard of. It
was also pointed out that
bowhunters, as a group, are
ethical, responsible and law
abiding.

Thanks
A special thanks to Jerry and
Norma Needan and Rudy
Reinsnyder for their
instruction, help and training
(a whole day on a Saturday,
and they are volunteers). We
all learned a lot and are really
looking forward to a great, safe
fall bowhunting season,.
starting Sept. 24 in our North
Central Florida area.

Courses Offered
The hunter safety courses
are available in Starke, starting
on Oct. 11, in Keystone
Heights on Aug. 9 and in
Raiford beginning on Oct. 3.
There is also an alligator


hunting class offered on
Wednesday, Aug. 3, from. 6
p.m. until 9 p.m. in
Gainesville. Log onto
www.myfwc.com for details.

Pass it on
Bowhunting, other types of
hunting and even
fishing... what about the next
generation? We need to pass
on our sports to our children


and grandchildren. We can
take them to the woods and to
the water, we can teach them
and show them, and we can
also enroll them in the free
education and safety courses
available. We can become a
mentor.
Fred Bear passed it on
Let us do the same.
Good hunting and fishing!

they -had to do was go out and
make a sure "catch" without
worrying about speed, Carter
said: That's when the

; "That was a lot of pressure,"
Career said.
Carter and VonAhn must

His. mother's family always

Carter's father, Dav id, was a

Montez Carter said the

husbUird saw how Ryan was
progressing, they-decided to
concentrate all-their efforts on
!supporting him and helping
"him become even better. Dav id
'Carter gave up coripetitihe
'roping to do just that.
"We hauled (Ryan) all o'er
the United Stales and all over
the state of Florida (to

said.
Ryan Carter, who won his
first saddle at the age of 13.
