EMS budget increases

by $112,000


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
A $112,000 increase in the
budget of Union County
Emergency Medical Services
may help the department avoid
the financial shortfall -it has
'experienced over the last
several years.
Two sources of revenue will
help the department in this
task. The first comes directly
from the department itself. The
tentative budget shows that the
department estimates it will
bring- in $260,000 in
receivables. This accounts for
all the money the department
collects as a result of its
services. Last year it estimated
it would collect $195,000.
In years past, this has been a
I source of difficulty for the
department. In 2002, it turned
all its billing. over to


Diversified Ambulance Billing
Inc. Since then, the department
has seen a dramatic increase in
collections. In 2002, the
department averaged collecting
about 28 percent of what it was
owed. Figures from the
department show it now
collects more than 65 percent
of those debts.
These shortfalls come as no
surprise to EMS Director Allen
Parrish. Last year, before the
board approved the final
budget in September, Parrish
told commissioners he did not
feel the figures would meet his
department's npeds.
"This budget is not balanced
and will fall short of funding
my department for an entire
year," said Parrish. Rising fuel
prices and supply and
maintaince costs have

Visitors to Flying Tiger
Airport in Worthington
Springs got a rare treat on Aug.
14.
Senator Bill Nelson was a
guest of the Rimes family on
Sunday. More than 50 guests
joined the family to dine and
talk with the Senator about
issues important to them. The
senator was in the area for a
series of town hall meetings he
Will be conducting throughout
the week.
The gathering was held at
the home of Bill and Linda
Holton. The senator's wife,
Grace, joined him to meet with
constituents. The senator said
he was visiting after hearing
about the large amount of
growth that was taking place in
the community.
Councilman Jeff Rimes,
John Rimes III and Mayor
Jimmy Cason were on hand to
explain to the Senator the
problems Worthington Springs
is facing. One particular issue
brought to light was the town's
inability to convince the
Florida Department of
Transportation to add a


people within uDOT ana to state
representatives and we have
made no progress," said Rimes
III. "Senator Nelson, we need a
sidewalk to get our children off
that roadway. We're not asking
for a handout, we're asking for
a helping hand."
County commissioners have
taken up this issue to no avail-
as well. Several months ago
when FDOT representatives
were laying out their five-year
plan for commissioners during
a regular meeting, Chairman
Wayne Smith and district three
commissioner Melaine "Red"
Clyatt asked the
representatives to include a
sidewalk in the plans of the
project.
FDOT representative Jordan
Green told Smithl and Clyatt
that because the repaving was
funded by a grant from the
state and the sidewalk would
be paid for from federal funds,
putting in a sidewalk would be
difficult because the
department would have to

Solid Waste down by

$100,000 from 04-05


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Union County
Department of Solid Waste
will see a cut of more- than
$100,000 for the 20d05-06
fiscal year.
In the 2004-05 fiscal year
the department received
$976,833 for department
expenses. This.year the county
has budgeted $876,344. The
sale of the county's front
loading garbage truck and it's
containers are the primary
reason for the cut.
. In last year's budget the sale
of the truck and the containers
it serviced netted the county
$72,400. This was thown as a
revenue. The county also
generated $98,000 in revenue
for garbage picked up by the
truck.
This year the proceeds from


the truck are not included. That
accounts for 75, percent of the
budget's shortfall. The other
25 percent comes from the
county not collecting the
garbage. Garbage collection is
estimated to bring the county
only $72,000 this fiscal year.
Another $1,000 will be lost on
container rental fees the county
charged.
There are three major
sources of revenue for the
department's budget. The first'
is the special assessment the
county collects from it's
residents. Including
Worthington Springs, the
county will collect $274,605
during the 2005-06 fiscal year. -
This is an increase of $3,675
over the previous year.

Union County achieves StormReady status


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
Union County has been
recognized by the National
Weather Service as being a
StormReady community.
The designation means the
county's Office of Emergency
Management has met a
stringent set of guidelines that
will ensure residents, will have
ample warning of approaching
hazardous weather conditions.
NWS Warning Coordination
Meteorologist Al Sandrik
presented commissioners with
a certificate and sign
recognizing the
accomplishment.
"One of the. most pleasurable
parts of my duties is when I get
to come out and stand before
county commissioners and
brag on some of my most
favorite people in the world,".
said Sandrik. "And that's
emergency management."
Sandrik said OEM had
worked hard extremely hard to
earn the recognition for the
county.
"It's an extremely difficult
process to go through," said
Sandrik. "Union County has
gone through it and is now


being, recognized as
-StormReady."
Sandrik gave commissioners
a brief history of the program.
According to Sandrik, the
program began in the Midwest
part of the country and the
program was extended
nationwide.
"I'm glad to say that most
counties in the state of Florida
already have this recognition,"
said Sandrik.
Sandrik told commissioners
that the program is not just a
"rubber stamp" type of
-- program,.__
"The county ha-d---r- go
through very specific criteria
to get this," said Sandrik.
"We've put those guidelines
together by looking at hard
experiences and looking at
disasters." Sandrik said the
NWS focused mainly on what
had gone wrong in the lines of
communication in these
events.
Sandrik told the commission
that he and his staff have had a
great working relationship with
OEM Director Doug York
since he took over last
September.

intermingle the funds. While
the representative thought it
was possible, Green said it was
not probable the sidewalk
would make it in.
Green also told the council
that because of environmental
issues, the sidewalk would cost
significantly more. According
to Green. because of the area
the sidewalk would have to be
constructed in a boardwalk-
style fashion. This would cost
approximately $700,000. A
normal flat concrete sidewalk
costs approximately $150,000
to construct.
The department's Web site
has the project scheduled for
the 2006-07 fiscal year. The
project will repave the road
from S.R. 121 to the Bradford
County line. Estimated cost of"
the project is $892,000.

direct authority to help in the
matter, he would use every
avenue available to him to help
address the issue.

"FEMA inspectors were

Nelson. "They would then turn

perform a variety of tasks.
Some of these came with a
strict time limit.
-One such task requires
students to completely don the
system that helps them breathe
while in a fire. Each must be
able to properly put on a self
contained breathing apparatus
in less than two minutes. The.
process requires the user to
check their supply, put on the
protective mask and ensure all
protective covering is in place
and secure. Banks. said the
process is. not as easy to
complete as it sounds.
"All of us had to practice the
process many times before we
made the time. limit," said
Banks. "One. minute and 45
seconds goes by quickly when
your trying to put all the
equipment on properly."
Banks said while the time
limit was nerve-racking, he
feels it will benefit everyone
who took the class in the long
run.
"The repetition of having to
go through the process so
many times will help us on a
fire scene," said Banks. "Now
when donning safety
equipment, it's like second
nature. That's important
because getting the equipment
on is sometimes not the first
thing on our minds."
Banks said another issue that
the class had to deal with was
the weather.- ,
"We began the class in
March anid it was not too bad,;"
said Banks. "But as the months
passed, the weather definitely
became a factor. We were
really feeling the equipment by
June."
Participants were required to
wear their full protective
clothing each time they went
through a drill. That


equipment, known as bunker
gear, consists of a coat, pants,
boots, a Nomex h9od (worn
over the head), a helmet and
gloves.
While the equipment does
protect crews fighting fires,
Banks said the clothing cause
the wearer to become hot very
quickly.
"The three layers of the coat
and pants, including a thermal
barrier, get hot even just
standing around in it," said
Banks. "I know we all lost a
few pounds during-the course,"
said Banks.
While the group did increase
their knowledge of firefighting
tactics, which was the goal of
the course, they accomplished
another :'as well. The state
recently mandated a new set of
regulations for firefighters who
are entering a burning
building. Whether paid or
volunteer, the standards apply
to both. By passing the course,
the participants met this new
requirement.
City Manager Richard Tillis
praised the group for taking
their own time to go through
the course.
"These men and women
took time away from their
families to increase their
knowledge and firefighting
skills," said Tillis. "The
citizens of Lake Butler, as well
as the county, are now safer
because of their sacrifice."
Th' city is planing to. honor
all those, who participated in
the class by holding a dinner
for the group and their
families. Tillis said he expects
the event to take place
sometime in mid-September.

combined to make Parrish's
prediction a reality.
Parrish predicts the
department will be more than
$45,000 over the budget set for
it in September. While this is a
high figure, its less than half of
what the department has been
over budget in the past.
Parrish credits several things
with this turn. around. Along
with the billing change, Parrish
said the department has
changed its buying practices,
found ways to reduce overtime
and found ways to reduce
supply expenses, all in effort to
stay within budget.
The second part of the
increase comes in the form of a
transfer from the general fund
special account. The account,
created by Chairman Wayne
Smiih, is a reserve fund to help
cover contingencies. The
department will draw $45,403
from the fund. '

of the department's entire
budget. Parrish's salary totals
$47,740. An increase of $1,390
over last year. Full-time
employee wages take up
another $260,128. That figure
is up $21,168. Both included a

Continued from p. TA

because neither the town nor
the county can come to a
compromise on an interlocal
agreement. In July 2004, the
town withdrew from the
agreement do to differences in
funding for the town's fire
department. Without the
agreement in place, the county
can not legally collect the fee.
While several meetings have
been 'held to iron out an
agreement, both sides have
been unable to find common
ground. According to
Chairman Wayne Smith, the
county has included the town's
special assessment in hopes it
can come to an understanding
on the issue in the very near
future.
The second largest source of
income for the department is in
the form of a grant for small
counties to handle garbage
collection. The more than
$274,000 grant comes from the
state from several different
sources. A tire disposal grant is
one of several that was
recently condensed into one
grant for the department.
,,,he third, and largest, source
6o3revenue comes from a host
.-,.the county receives from
the New River Solid Waste
Association. The group,
consisting of Baker, Bradford
and Union Counties, gives the
county $275,000 because the
tricounty landfill resides in the


county. The county will use
the revenue to pay for a variety
of costs associated with not
only the current landfill, but
the old one as well.
On the expense side, the
county will pay out $100,000
for the monitoring of the old
landfill. Each year the site
must be monitored to ensure it
is not contaminating the
surrounding area.
Salaries are another high
area of expense in the budget.
Along with Solid Waste
Director Jimmy Beasley's
$38,485 salary, the department
will pay out $180,601 to
employees. This is $23,702, or
3 percent increase, over, last
year. The county wrote a 3
percent increase. into the
budget for all county
employees.
The largest expense for the
department is a $235,000
tipping fee to NRSWA. The
fee is up $25,000 over last
year. This is the fee the county
pays to put it's trash into the
landfill. It is estimated that the
county will spend an additional

$25,000 on the fee this fiscal
year.
Other expenses in the budget
include:
$35,700 for health
insurance for 8.5 employees.
$22,000 for Workers'
compensation.
o$35,000 for repair and
maintaince of equipment.
$45,250 in loan payments.
$15,000 for unspecified
new equipment.
o$47,902 to Emergency
Medical Services to help
balance its budget.

City recieves update

on Butler Townhomes


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer

On Aug. 8, the developers of
Butler Townhomes updated
city commissioners on their
progress and plans to install
additional units.
Maggi Wetzel,
representative for the firm, told
commissioners the company
had recently acquired land
adjacent to the development's
present site.
"We have purchased the
building and land of that
formerly- housed the
Department of Children and
Family Services," said Wetzel.
"We are planning to add eight
additional townhomes to the
vacant property next to the
building."
The property is located
directly behind Badcock Home
Furnishings on Main Street in
Lake Butler. The company is
currently clearing land for a
townhome development that
will have 32 units.
The group has filed an
application with the city to
change the zoning of the land
from residential single family
to residential multifamily. The
application did not make the
deadline for the city's August
meeting and will be reviewed
at its regular meeting in
September.
Wetzel told the commission
while the group is looking at
several different options for


the building, she was not sure
what would actually be done
with it.
"We are currently reviewing
our options in reference to the
structure," said Wetzel. "It is
unclear at this point what we
will actually do with it.'
City Manager Richard Tillis
indicated in the meeting's
agenda that the group looked
to turn the facility into an
assisted living facility. Wetzel
told commissioners that the
possibility had been looked at,
but that option is becoming
less likely as the group gets
more information.
Along with the information
about the new purchase,
Wetzel presented the
commission an engineering
design of how the 32-unit
complex might be llid out.
"We've been back to the
engineers for the fourth time
now," said Wetzel. "It is our
hope that what you see before
you will be acceptable to the
Suwannee River Water
Management District."
Wetzel said the group
expected approval of the plans
from SRWMD in the very near
future. She said once the plan
has been approved the
company would begin
construction of the
development.

"I really appreciate that,"
said Sandrik. "He was very
helpful in the class we
conducted just last month."
The OEM hosted a class the
brought "emergency managers
up to speed on the program
they use to help them make
decisions during hurricanes.
The class on HURREVAC
2000 was attended by three
other counties.
SSandrik warned
commissioners that the
recognition did not mean the
county would be safe during
severe weather.
"The designation means the
*county is st6rm ready not
storm proof," said Sandrik.
"Charlotte County was
StormReady and you saw the
devastation that accrued
there."
Hurricane Charley hit the
county last hurricane season
and caused major damage to
the. community. Damage
estimates from that storm
alone totalled billions of,
dollars last year.
.According to Sandrik, what
the NWS has found is that
communities- with the
designation are more resilient
to severe weather.
-"Because they have all their
lines of communication open,
and formal procedures are
already in place, they are better
prepared to meet the needs of
their citizens," said Sandrik.
York said he has been
working toward the
recognition for several months.
"After we got the storms of
2004 behind us and I got my
bearing, I knew it was time to
work toward this
achievement," said York.
"While it has ben countless
hours from both myself and
my staff to reach this, knowing
the citizens of Union County
will be ready in the event
severe weather threatens the
area is worth every ounce of
effort put into it."
York said the department
spent much of its time
developing plans to meet the
criteria for the program.
"We had to create several
plans in order to meet the
requirements of this program,"
said -Yo:rk. "Back-up
communications, ways of
alerting the public and what to
do in the event severe weather
threatened the. area were all
procedures we had to put into
place."
York said, along with
planning, many of the sheriff's
office communication
personnel went through
specialized training to help
identify types of storms.
"Our dispatchers went
through classes designed to
help them disseminate what
type of severe weather a caller
was talking about," said York.
"They were also instructed on
how to report it to the NWS.
This helps the weather service_
know what to look for."
Along with the training,
specialized equipment had to
be purchased to meet certain
criteria. New communications
equipment, special weather
radios and paging equipment
were among several of the
items the department
purchased. York said the
required items cost the county
almost nothing.
"Much of the equipment
bought to meet program
criteria was purchased using
state and federal grants," said
York. "The taxpayers of this
county put out very little for a
large recognition,"
While the county 'has been
recoginzed, it does have a time
S limit. The OEM must recertify
with the NWS every three
years. to keep its status. As the
county grows and becomes
more populated, the criteria
change. They are based on the
population of the community.
York said he's prepared to do
whatever it takes to keep the
status.

By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
Though the county issued its
proposed budget just two
weeks ago, changes are already
being made.
The first of those changes is
in the amount of funding
which each district will receive
for road materials and supplies.
This week Chairman Wayne
Smith amended the budget so
that all five county districts
had equal funding.
In the original version, the
budget gave districts two, three
and five $16,120 each. District
four, Smith's district, received
$23,610. District one,
represented by Karen Cossey,
received $9,700.
The new version splits the
funding equally five ways.
Each district will receive
$16,334. The $81,670 will go
toward making sure the roads
teach district are maintained.
The change comes after
Cossey questioned Smith about
the division of the funding.
During a special meeting on
Aug. 4, at which time the
budget was presented, Cossey
asked Smith why the funding
was divided in such a manner.
Smith explained that a study
had been done to determine
exactly how many miles of
road each district had in it.
According to Smith, based on
those figures, the money was
proportionally divided. It is
unclear when the study as
conducted, but Smith said he
believed it was as long as eight
years ago. It is unclear at this
time where that study is.
There has been no
explanation from Smith as to
why the changes were made.
Cossey said this was the most
money her district has received
in the fund since she's been
commissioner.

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area


Fla. museum
to host
Moran photo
exhibit
The Florida Museum of
Natural History will host John
Moran's "Journal of Light: A
Photographers Search for the
Soul of Florida" traveling
exhibit from Sept. 24 Jan. 2,
2006.
The exhibit features more
than 50 color photographs of
Florida wildlife and
environments with an
emphasis on Florida waters.
The exhibit is based on
Moran's popular book,
"Journal of Light: The Visual
Diary of a Florida Nature
Photographer," a 20-year
collection of photos and essays
published in 2004. Inside the
exhibit guests will view
alligators' eyes glowing at
dusk, crystal-clear springs,
silhouettes against sunsets and
sandi cranes dancing to their
own tunes. Other images
include the Florida beaches,
black-water rivers, palms, live
oaks, turtles, flowers and
night-time landscapes that


make Florida a natural gem.
"Truly a universal language,
photography can help us better
understand and appreciate the
many gifts of nature bestowed
upon this great state we call
home," Moran said.
With each photograph of
natural Florida, Moran


attempts to capture his vision
of how Florida once appeared
to Ponce de Leon and other
early settlers in the state.
"My goal is to show people
the Florida they've never seen,"
Moran said. "Or else I want to
show them familiar Florida in
a new way."


After 23 years working as a
photographer, writer and editor
for The Gainesville Sun,
Moran began photographing
Florida full time in 2003.
His work has appeared .in
numerous books and
magazines, including "National
Geographic," "Life," "Time'.'


and the "National Audubon
Society Field Guide to
Florida." The National Press
Photographers Association also
named him "Photographer of
the Year" for the Southeastern
United States.
The museum is near the
intersection of SW 34th-Street


and Hull Road in the UF
Cultural Plaza. Hours are 10
a.m. -5 p.m. Monday-Saturday
and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday.

Governor lauds FL Guard


Either deployed around the
world in the fight against
terrorism or just across the
state in post-hurricane relief,
the state's National Guard
members put service before
self, said Florida's governor in
Orlando July 30.
Speaking to more than 1,000
Florida Guardsmen and their
families gathered for the
annual National Guard
Association of Florida,
Governor Jeb Bush said the
sacrifices made by those in the
National Guard are appreciated
not only by him, but by
everyone across the state.-
"I thank you for always
being ready to serve whether at
home or abroad," Bush said.
"Everyday our troops are doing
great things."
Citing the Guard's recent
call-up after Hurricane Dennis
struck the Panhandle July 9,
Bush said he has spoken to
numerous citizens "who found
hope and relief" in seeing
Nationat 'Guard' con.oys' roI"in---
to devastated areas.
The governor highlighted
statistics of Guard activations
for the Global War on
Terrorism and for hurricane
relief in 2004 and 2005.
. This year the National
Guard .mobilized more than,
2,600 soldiers and airmen in
the aftermath of Hurricane
Dennis in addition to the 2,000
Guardsmen deployed overseas
in the Global War on
Terrorism. Since Sept. .11,
2001, the Florida NationalF
Guard has mobilized more
than 6,800 troops in support of
operations Noble Eagle,
Enduring Freedom and Iraqi
Freedom.


During the speech Bush
awarded the first ever Medal
of Merit to the Florida
National Guard for its service.
Maj. Gen. Douglas Burnett,
adjutant general of Florida,
accepted the award on behalf
of the entire Florida National
Guard.

"I appreciate, the Florida
National Guard's service,
sacrifice, and commitment on
behalf or our state and our.
country," Bush said.
The Medal of Merit was_
signed into effect by Bush in.
May 2004 and is given by the
state of Florida for actions
"above and beyond the level of
duty normally required by
respective military or civilian
position."
Prior to the, his remarks
during the evening banquet,
Bush met personally with the
Guard's junior officers and
enlisted soldiers and airmen to
personally thank them for their
ser ice. As he ent-ereteihe'
packed banquet room, he was
greeted with a standing
ovation.
The National -Guard
Association of Florida
surprised Bush with an-
announcement that he was
being inducted into the'
association's Hall of Fame for-
his ardent support of the Guard
and its members.
Normally the induction is
reserved, for a member of the
National Guard; however, his
award was due to his
leadership as commander in
chief. Bush has spoken at each
of the meetings since- he
became governor in 1998,


seven in all, and is the only
Florida governor to do so.

- Assessing mobile homes


Very seldom does an individual or
family build a "stick-built" house on
Island titled in someone's name other
than his own, bu-t that isn't the case
with mobile homes, which are often
placed in mobile home parks or on land
owned by another. Ownership of the
land on which a mobile home is locat-
ed determines the assessment and tax-
ing of the unit.
Mobile homes in Florida are assessed
and taxed in one of three ways. They
are- either assessed and taxed as real
property, subject to an annual license
tax or assessed and taxed as tangible
personal property. Bradford County
Property Appraiser Jimmy Alvarez uti-
lizes only the first two categories for
assessing mobile homes.,
Owner-occupied mobile homes titled
in the .same name as the land on which
they are located, permanently fixed'
and connected to utilities, are taxed as
real property just as ofher homes are.
Homestead exemption applies in the
same manner. Mobile homes in this
category are subject to appreciation
and depreciation as well. -
Owners of mobile homes located on
land owned by another person or entity
are required to purchase a mobile home.
series sticker from the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
and affix the sticker to the home.
Both Bradford County and the city of
Starke require building permits for
installing or replacing existing mobile
homes. The permit becomes the vehi-
cle by which the property appraiser's
office becomes cognizant of the trans-
action and adjusts the tax roll accord-
ingly. .
Out in the county, a mobile home's
placement is governed by the same
rules and regulations that apply to site-
built homes. In Starke, zoning laws
1 mllow mO RtfomeO .l st'It
areas.
Alvarez says his office assesses busi-
ness owners and farmers for equipment
owned and used in their operations, but
the average wage earner pays no tangi-
ble personal property taxes. While
mobile homes may legally be taxed as
tangible personal property if located on
rented land, Bradford County does not
utilize that method for taxing mobile
homes.
In the beginning, mobile homes were
truly mobile, probably 8 feet wide and
very short in comparison to today's 80-
foot long units. The name mobile home
described the unit, since it was truly
mobile, built to be moved as the owner
relocated.
That is no longer the situation.
Homes built in factories with 2,400
square feet of floor space are mobile in
the same sense that a stick-built house
is mobile. Almost any single dwelling
can be moved by experts in the busi-
ness.
Everyone agrees the early models
were pretty flimsily built, highly sus-
ceptible to wind and fire and subject to
deterioration if not properly main-
tained. The aluminum electric wiring,
standard in older models, interacted


with copper wiring and started fires.
Those older models would burn within
seven or eight minutes, and be flat on
the ground long before firemen could
respond. Actually, they were dangerous
to live in.
Being poorly constructed, they were
also prone to destruction by high winds
during tornado- or hurricane-type
weather, especially those units without
straps anchoring them to the ground.
Prior to 1992, state building codes
for regular houses and mobile homes
were too lenient and residents paid a
dqar price for the oversight. Hurricane
Andrew brought new and better con-
struction codes and today both stick- <
built and manufactured homes are stur-
dier than before the storm.
Building codes were tightened up,
requiring hurricane clips on rafters and
nails rather than staples in shingles and
tie-downs.
But there was a loophole; the new".
codes were effective 90 days after they
were approved. On the last day, prior to
the new codes becoming effective,,
builders drew thousands of building
permits, circumventing the law for the'
homes built under those permits. Many
people now own homes built after the
codes were written, but that conform to
building codes of the old pre-Hurricane
Andrew days.
Representatives of the manufactured
home industry say 1995 was the' magic
year for substantially improved homes
when building codes were tightened up
by HUD, the. Federal Housing and
'Urban Development Agency. Homes
built since that date are competitive
with stick-built homes in every way
other than cost.
Proponents continue to be defensive
about their product. even as they point
out that manufactured homes withstand,,.
Tire as wefl as site-built homes or, per-
haps, even better. Codes require mobile
homes to have a minimum of two
doors, windows that serve as escape
exits in case of fire, and the use of fire-
resistant construction materials.
But do they still blow away in a
storm? Well, a tornado will damage a.
brick home and destroy small frame
homes, making single-family homes of
any type subject to extreme weather..
.However, HUD has moved to require
manufactured homes to meet stringent
conditions. The nation has been divid-
ed into three zones, and manufactured
homes must be built to conform to one
of the zones. In Bradford, mobile
homes must be able to withstand 145-
mph winds.
Individuals and families contemplat-
ing the construction or purchase of a
home shouldn't dismiss manufactured
homes out-of-hand, especially if cost is
a consideration. New models are spa-
cious and exciting. with every conceiv-
able floor plan, and are available, in
sizes up to 2.300 square feet and larg-
er. Financing, similar to that of stick-
built homes, is available up to 30 years.

,Gambling addiction a


growing problem with teens


By CHANTELE MARTIN
UF Journalism Student

With the growing h pe of
the popular series "The World
Series of Poker" and "The
World Poker Tour," more
teens have been gambling.
"Recent studies indicate that
more than 70 percent of youth
between the ages of 10 and 17
gambled in the past Near, up
from 45 percent in 1988," said
Monica Villavicencio in an
article for "NewsHour Extra."
A gambling addiction is not
only prevalent among adults,
but now more so with youth.
According to the Connecticut
Council on Gambling. 11.3
percent of high school students
qualified as problem gamblers.
That is significantly higher
than the rate of 5.4 percent for
adults.
"We, as a society, generally
tend to focus more on the
entertainment value of
gambling and fail to fully
recognize the negative side,"
said Jennifer Zechmeister in an
article for the Center for
Addiction and Mental Health.
In the past gambling was
considered a taboo, said
Zechmeister. But as' people
started to play for recreation
and fun, there has been a boom
in the entertainment industry
for the sport. Online gambling
Web sites have increased, and
there are TV shows on
numerous networks.
Acc'ordi in g to
Gamblingmagazine.com, in
1997. there were 40 gambling
Web_ sites,- and now, 650
globally. As indicated at
YouLhgambling.com, about 80
percent of high school students
report having gambled for
money within the past year, 4

percent to 8 percent, of'
adolescents presently have a,'
serious gambling problem, and
10 percent to 14 percent of
adolescents are at risk fdr
developing this problem.
Addictive gambling among
youth is a problem because it
can affect the level of
performance in school leading
to dropouts, and many other
negative consequences can
arise from addictive gambling.
According to the Center for
Addiction and Medical
Health's Web site, the effects
range from financial problems
and strained or lost
relationships to criminal
behavior, avoidance of other
issues, and lack of progress o.n
goals. :
Most people' don't realize' the
importance of this addiction. It
is just as bad as being addicted
to alcohol.
"When you have a gambling,
addiction, all you can think
about is gambling,"' according
to the McGill Youth Gambling
Research and Treatment
Clinic's Web site.
"You have an uncontrollable
urge to gamble which makes
you do things you wouldn't
normally do; just like when
you have a drug addiction.
They see gambling and drugs
as a solution to theirproblems
when in fact the addiction is in
itself a ;big -problem,"'
according to the clinic.
The American Psychiatric
Association has recognized
"pathological gambling" -as a
medical disorder, and,
according to their Web site, it
is more prevalent in those who
have a parent who has a
gambling problem and in
males, though it does not
exclude females.

One of the main problems'
with youth and gambling is
that most cannot discern what
is an addiction and what is just 7
for fun. Most are not able to
see the signs that they or their
friends have a problem.
"As with adults, youth
gambling addiction can
negatively impact every aspect
of life, from learning and
school performance, to mental
and physical health," according
to the Illinois Institute for
Addiction Recovery's Web'
site. "It can lead to criminal'
and other antisocial behavior.,
Studies have found that some,!
young, problem gamblers are
also fighting alcohol and drug
addictions."

'Cheresnick doesn't agree with
the idea of gambling amongst
adolescents.
"Well, first it's illegal and I
don't really agree with that,"
Cheresnick said. "I wouldn't
o'have done as well in high
school. That's the time you
should be hanging out with,
friends and playing sports.'-
"Gambling is not something ,
that kids should mess around
with," Cheresnick said. "It's
not just a game to play in your

easy to become obsessed with ,

Staph infections are 'nothing to mess with'


By AMBER HENDERSON
UF Journalism Student


infection. In gyms, MRSA can person to person through the Clugston. Turf abrasions .on
be spread by sweat and other skin. football players are areas of
fluids that stick to equipment "Bacteria are highly cultured increased infection. The
and then are transmitted from off o'f Astroturf," -said' wounds need to be cleaned out


and treated. A shower simply
isn't enough to get the bacteria
out.
"Watch how your wounds


and your sKin react: after
surgery, or any contact with
possible infection," said
Daniels. "I'm glad I did." '


One doesn't usually think of
leaving the hospital with worse
problems than when admitted.
This came true for two Central
Florida men.
Wayne Daniels, 67, and
James Alston, 25, both entered
the hospital hoping that
surgery, would fix their
medical problems, but, when
they left the hospital, both men
acquired MRSA staph
infections that proved to be
worse then their original
ailment.
Daniels first visited the
hospital in 1996 to have a toe
amputated.
"My body just started
shutting down. I almost died,"
said Danihls, who contracted
the staph infection after his
surgery.
Since Daniels' surgery, he
has been on seven different
antibiotics at any given time
and as a result of the infection
has lost a leg.
"I started at the hospital with
the intention of one surgery
repairing my foot," Alston said
of his experience. "Two years
and 11., surgeries later, I
realized that a staph infection
is nothing to mess with."
MRSA, or Methicillin-
Resistant Staphylococcus
Aureus,. has become a
prevalent pathogen in the
United States. MRSA is a type
of bacteria that is resistant to'
certain antibiotics.
Staph are bacteria that are
commonly carried on the skin
or in the nose of healthy
people.
"MRSA first began to be
seen in athletes, but is now
seen more and more in the
general community, said Dr.
Jay Clugston at the Universit.
of Florida Student Healthcarf
Center... "It is mqinhl seen o
the skin."


Staph infections. including
MRSA, occur most frequently
among persons in hospitals and
other healthcare facilities, such-
as nursing homes and dialysis
centers,, who have weakened
immune systems. These types
of staph infections are known
as healthcare, associated
infections.
In hospitals,- MRSA has
most commonly been spread
by hand contact. If. a
healthcare provider has not
properly washed his or her
-hands after coming in contact
with the bacteria, it can easily
be spread to the next person
treated.
Daniels' staph infection was
discovered six days after he,
entered the hospital for
surgery. He had already
returned home from surgery,
but the medical staff said his
infection was contracted
during his stay in the hospital.
Alston first discovered he
had a staph infection about two
weeks after surgery. "My foot
became very ,.red and. swollen-
in the, area of the wound. It
looked like ruptured blisters."
There are standard
precautions that hospitals can
take to control the spread of
MRSA: hand washing,
wearing gowns, masks, gloves
and isolation control.
MRSA infections that are
acquired by persons who have
not been recently hospitalized
or had a medical procedure are
known as community
associated infections.
"It's a huge hygiene issue,
using dirty towels, notf
showering," said Clugston of
the spread of MRSA in the
community.
"Since the infection is under
control now, I shouldn't suffer
any long-term health effects.
.There is just always a risk of
triggering the infection again,"
said Alston.
'Most staph infections are
.controllable with antibiotics,
but it is becoming harder. As
with MRSA, these infections
are becoming resistant to many
medications.
Athletes are especially
susceptible to the' MRSA


When a deep injury is done,
to us, we never recover
until we forgive.:

'05 Bradford High School band will be seeing red:


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford High School
band is seeing red this year.
The theme for this- year's
halftime show, "Seeing Red,"
will bring football and music
fans a Spanish flare with
"Incantation," "Reflections of
Sound" and "Flight of the
Condor."
The band's 70 members and
....--director practice six hours. per-
week throughout the season to
prepare for the show.
They 'also practice in a
preseason camp during the last
week of July. .
The early practice helps the
band memorize- their music
and learn field positions.
"We train just as hard as the
football players," said band
director Mike Johnson.
Not only is Johnson proud
of the BHS band work ethic,
but he is also pleased to have
new band uniforms -to replace
the 15-year-old ones borrowed
used from Middleburg.
The "Seeing Red" theme is
related, in part, to the red and
black uniforms. Johnson is
thankful to the school board
for. helping obtain the
uniforms,he said.
The uniforms are one step
towards Johnson's teaching
motto: "better every day.",
Johnson's ultimate goal is

to develop the overall music
program.
The school district is
improving with a music
program addition to Southside
Elementary School, he said.
Brooker Elementary has also
begun having music one day a
week, and Hampton hopes to
do the same during the second
half of the year. Starke
Elementary currently has no
music program.
Simiilar to the middle school
band, the BHS band 'is in
"major need of instruments,"
Johnson said. The band will-
accept instruments in even
remotely good condition.
He encourages BHS band
alumni who are holding on to
their old instruments to donate
them to the school.
The "Storm 'Shelter"
concession stand- at the
stadium, from which all
proceeds go the band program,
can also be used to show
support.
Of course, the band never
minds the community
showing up at their scheduled
events, such as performances
at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando,
the Florida Bandmasters
Association marching
assessment on Oct. 15, the
Homecoming parade, a
Christmas concert and
possibly the University of
Florida Homecoming parade.


BMS band storms into busy year


The band will also be
hosting a FBA competition at
BHS during the first week in
March with more than 20
bands.
Band director Johnson grew
up in Gainesville. He
graduated from Santa Fe
Community College and the
University of Florida, where
he majored in music education
and minored in music
literature.
At UF, Johnson was active
in organizations, such as the
Fine "Arts ..College Council;
the -Collegiate Music
Education National Conference
Vice .President, UF
Symphonic Band and was the
drum major for the UF
Marching Band.
Johnson is also a judge for
several competitions across
Florida.

The Bradford Middle School
band, known with the high
school band as the Red Storm:
Brigade, does not waste any
time. .
In the first week of the new
sch ool yea, -The percussion
section is already having
almost three hours of after-
school practice to prepare for
the Homecoming parade.
Not to mention, there is .a
group of- -40 sixth-grade
students who have joined the
BMS band this year.
"'There's a huge learning
curve" in the band class
because there are students with
every level of mosic- abityT'"-
from never playing an
--instrument to having played:
instruments all of their lives,
said band director Mike
Reynolds.
Every student is allowed to(.
try every instrument to see,
which -he or she is best suited
for. The final decision on
what to play is up to the
student.
Once they learn how to
play, the BMS band has many
events scheduled throughout
the year, including: FBA -
Music Performance
Assessment, Solo and .
Ensemble, North -Florida
Honors Band, the
Homecoming parade, a
Christmas concert and a spring
concert.
With these events spread out
over an entire school year, it
seems like there would be
plenty of time to get things
done, but Reynolds says the
day-to-day band class is still
"'pretty hectic."
Reynolds' workday starts at
8 a.m. After school, he helps
the BMS band members.
Then, he works with the
Bradford High School
marching band until 5:30 p.m.
Nonetheless, Reynolds, who
begins his fourth year at
Bradford Middle School, is
looking forward to the year
ahead.
The new band room is
supposed to be complete in
approximately three weeks,
said Reynolds. d --
A new band room will give
the BMS band practice and
storage rooms, a larger
ensemble room, better
acoustics and the .ability to
hear the whole band.
"We-cai't-'wait," Reynolds :
said, who is happy to move
out of what the band members
. affectionately refer to as the
"band box"-an aging portable'
where the band is currently
located.
Reynolds hopes the new
band building would expand
membership, he said.
He is also "really excited
about Southside's new
elementary school music
teacher," he said.
Reynolds believes the new-_
band room and-ihe elementary
school music teacher will
motivate younger students to
get excited' about the band
program.
Reynolds has already:
increased the band program,
from 60 members when he
came to BMS to about 130
members this year.


grade members march with the
high school band on a
voluntary basis.
3 3 Whether through marching
band or symphonic band later
in the year, Reynolds tries to
teach his students discipline,
success and teamwork, he said.
...."I'm working for' the long
term," Reynolds said.
He tries to help students get.
to college, whether through
music or by using the skills
a. they have learned through
being a band member.

2 Union Co. teens add to 4-H,


FFA achievements


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Two teenagers from Union
County who have already
accomplished a lot in Future
Farmers of America and 4-H
have been elected to top state
offices in those organizations.
Both Andrea Andrews and
Abigail Crawford, who are
each 18, are similar in the fact
that they are excited about.
their new positions. Andrews
is the FFA Area II vice
president and Crawford is the
4-H State Council president.
However, they are different
in that one views her election
as a dream come true and the
other never really gave much
thought to being a state officer
until just recently.
. "It has been my dream to be
state 4-H president since I was
12 and it's finally come true,"
Crawford said.
Judy Butterfield, Bradford
County's 4-H agent,, said: "I
knew if she set her mind to it
she could do anything she-
wanted to."
Andrews, however, said she
was never one of those FFA
members who dreamed of the
day that she would be a state
officer. She stayed busy
enough in FFA, participating
in various projects and
competing in contests, but
never gave much thought to
running for a state office until
Lake. Butler FFA advisor
David Harris, on the first day
of her senior year at .Union
County High School, asked her
if she was going to.
"I was like, 'Why not,'
because., it's an awesome
opportunity," Andrews said.
"That's kind of been my thing
throughout FFA-take
advantage of every opportunity
offered to you."
Charlotte Emerson, one of
Lake Butler's FFA advisors,
said: "I think for her it was
probably always in the back of
her mind, but not something,
necessarily, she thought was a
possibility. I think it worked to
her advantage, not havirig

consumed herself with it."
Now that she has been
elected to a state office,
Andrews calls it an "absolute
honor."
Andrews and Crawford have
both been participating in
various training sessions and
conferences since their
elections. Andrews first
participated in the Building
Leaders and Strong Teams of
Officers conference, followed
by the National Leadership
Conference for State Officers
in Tennessee. State officers
from Tennessee, Kentucky and
Michigan were also present.
"We were the smallest team
there," said Andrews, who is
one of six Florida officers.
"Most of them had 12 people
on their teams."
Andrews said she really
enjoyed the FFA Leadership
Adventures and FFA Outdoor
Adventures-summer camps
held at the Florida FFA
Leadership Training Center, in
Haines City. She said the
camps allowed her and her


fellow officers to meet other
Florida FFA students and. start
to really feel like state officers.
"We got to begin meeting
people and building
relationships with students,"
Andrews said.
Crawford and her fellow
officers have already gone
through some training and will
attend the upcoming Learning
and Leading' training in
Madison, which will be
attended by eight council
officers and 10 4-H
ambassadors from throughout
Florida.
"The trainers will basically
teach us so that we can, in
turn, go out and teach
everybody else," Crawford
said.
-At the end of this month,
Crawford and other council
officers will begin planning
activities for the first executive
board. There are three
executive boards each year.
The biggest leadership event
of the year in 4-H will be the
Leadership Adventure
Weekend, which is scheduled
for January.
"Approximately 300 youth
attend that." Cra%,.ford said.

meeting.
"As I got older, I stuck with
it," Crawford said. "I'm really
glad I did because of the
opportunities I've had to travel
around the nation and to meet
people in the state. The
training I've participated in has.
been incredible.
"It's been the most
wonderful thing that has
happened to me. It's a
wonderful organization."
Andrews, too, was involved
in 4-H for five years before
becoming involved in FFA as
. soon as she was eligible as a
seventh-grader. The support.

from Lake Butler and Union


County and the advisors who
are involved made an
impression on Andrews, as did
the: various contests, which
interested her the most.
"Our county is very
competitive with other
counties and we're very good
at most things," Andrews said.
"Getting involved in contests
kept me (inQ FFA). I did
livestock judging for six years
and parliamentary procedure
for six years."
Both 'Andrews and Crawford
have accumulated various
accolades throughout their
FFA and 4-H careers. This past
year, Andrews helped the

Andrews will also be
participating in a big event in
January-the International
Leadership Conference for
State Officers, which will be
held in Portugal and Spain.
The FFA officers plan to use
the trip to learn about that
region's agriculture. Andrews
said she and her fellow Florida
state officers feel the emphasis
on agriculture in FFA has kind
of been lost during recent
years.
"Our team has decided this
year that our number-one
priority is to be ambassadors
for agriculture," Andrews said.
The trip to Portugal and
Spain, without a doubt, is what
she's looking forward to the
most this year as Area 2 vice
president, said Andrews, who
has never traveled abroad.
"We'll actually each stay
with a host family with another
officer from a different state. It
should be rather interesting,"
Andrews said.
What does Crawford most
look forward to this year as
/state council president? She
wants to make a difference.
"You can be a president in
-title, but I'm really looking
forward to getting, out there
and meeting the 4-Hers and
traveling and attending, various
district and county activities to
promote 4-H awareness,"
Crawford said.
Crawford's involvement in
4-H began when she was 6 or
7. She said her mother, Denise
Crawford, heard about the
organization from a friend and

UCHS Tigers aim to finish what they start in 2005


Editor's note: This is the
second of three high school
football previews. A preview of
Bradford's upcoming season
will appear in next week's
issue. Also, since this story
was completed, Union County
players Austin Emery and
Darren Hendricks sustained
injuries. Emery is out at least
3-4 weeks with a fractured
shoulder and Hendricks is out
indefinitely with a torn ACL.

By CLIFF SMELLEY

It may be just the start of the
football season, but the Union
County Tigers are already
talking about finishing.
No, the Tigers are not
looking ahead to possibly
putting themselves in position
to play for a state
championship. They are
thinking about what prevented
them from doing so last
year-finishing a team off
when they have a lead.
Union County did hurt its
chances of playing for the state
championship again last
season with turnovers in a 23-

Football classics slated for Friday


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Fans ..,'of the Bradford,
Keystone Heights and Union
County football teams will get
a look at their teams this
Friday, Aug. 19, when all three
teams compete in preseason
kickoff classics.
Bradford will be the only.
team that will host a classic.
The Tornadoes will play Terry
Parker, a Class 5A team that
went 1-8 last season,'at 7:30
p.m. at David Hurse Stadium.
Keystone travels to
Newberryto t take on the

Panthers, a Class 2B team,
went 4-6 last season. One of
their losses was 21-13 to,
Keystone.
Union County-will travel to
Alachua to play Santa Fe at
7:30 p.m. Santa.Fe, a Class 3A
team, was 7-5 last season.
Varsity and junior varsity
teams will each play a half in
the classics with the exception
of the Bradford-Terry Parker
game, which will be varsity
only.
Last year, Bradford and
Union County met each other
in a classic, only to have the,


game called because of
lightning.. The two teams did
get one quarter of play in,
which ended with the Tigers
up 8-0.
Union marched 65 yards for
the game's lone score. The last
four plays of the drive were a
19-yard run by Jason
Rodriguez, a 6-yard run by
Jeremy Brown, a 6-yard
reception by Jermaine Holmes
and an 8-yard touchdown pass
from Brandon Davis to Kevin
Alexander. The touchdown,
capped by a pass from Davis to
C.J..:Spiller for two points,
came with 2:13 to play in the
quarter..
The Tigers had five first
downs in the quarter, gaining
90 yards.
Bradford's offense could not

*':defense. The. Tornadoes had'
just one first down on three
possessions, which ended in
two punts and one turnover on
downs..
Keystone hosted Bronson in
a classic last year' and the
Indians won 13-0 in a
scheduled quarter of play.
The Indians blocked two
punts in te game, including
one, by Lans Hardin that gave
Keystone the ball at the


Bronson 17 and led to the first
score. An 8-yard run by Kraig
Passanante set up a 2-yard
touchdown run by Wil Breton.
Keystone scored following
another blocked punt later in
the game. That scoring drive
was capped by, a 15-yard
touchdown pass from Tyler
Davis to Caleb Whitfield.
The Indians generated 68


yards of offense and three first
downs.
Defensively, Keystone held
Bronson to 22 yards and one
first down. Hardin had a sack
and Michael Williams had an
interception.

the state championship last

factors working in their favor
that could help them do so this
year. Nobles said! he is not
looking that far ahead, but he
acknowledges that this is the
most experienced and fastest
team he has coached at Union
County.
"I feel like if we can stay

be pretty good," Nobles said.
"God's blessed us with a lot of
talent this year."
..Spiller, who rushed for

of those talents. Everyone
knows about the speed the
senior back possesses, but
Nobles said there is more to
his game than that.
"I think that's the thing
people miss-how tough a
runner he is," said Nobles,
adding that Spiller has worked
hard in the weight room and on
the field to become even more
of a physical runner.

Timber is part of Bradford County man's family-tree


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A lot has changed in the
timber industry-in the past 70
years or so, but one thing-has
- remained constant during that
time-there has been a Kite
working in it.
L.J. Kite Jr., 54, owns a
timber company in Bradford
County, following in the
footsteps of both his father and
his grandfather. Much has
changed since Kite's
grandfather, Lester Kite, began
working in timber in the early
1930s.
One change is the amount of
money involved in operating
such a business. Kite said a
few thousand dollars would


have been a lot of money in his
grandfather's day, but now it
takes hundreds of thousands of
dollars to run such a business.
So what would Lester Kite
have thought of that amount of
money?
"He'd take off that hat of his
and probably throw it on the
ground and say, 'I don't see
how you all are ever going to
make it,'" Kite said.
Then there's the equipment,
which is a far cry from the
crosscut saws and hewing axes
Kite's grandfather used.
"I'd love for him just to see
the machinery we've got
today," Kite said. "He'd
probably run. It'd probably
scare him."
Lester Kite moved to
Bradford County from


L.J. Kite Jr. displays a resolution that was presented
to his grandfather, Lester Kite, recognizing him as
providing the first cord of timber to Rayonier in
Fernandina Beach.

Georgia. He was a farmer, but
a profitable side business
proved to be cutting cross ties
for the railroad.
"Yellow Britches," as
Lester Kite was known
because of the, khaki pants he
wore, was eventually contacted
by Rayonier, located in
Fernandina Beach, and asked
to cut pine pulpwood for them.
Lester Kite worked a 2,000-
acre tract of land south of
Sampson Lake that Rayonier
owned. The wood was loaded
onto railroad cars that sat on
the old tracks that ran through
Deerfoot Trail.
"He was actually the first
man who sent Rayonier its first
cord of timber," Kite said of
his grandfather.
A resolution, which
Rayonier presented to Lester
Kite, hangs on the wall of
Kite's office attesting to that
fact. The resolution mentions
how Lester Kite shipped wood
to Rayonier from 1939 until
1959 and how he "cooperated
wholeheartedly in meeting his
quota and producing quality
wood and has given
unselfishly of his time and
efforts in furthering good
relations between the field and


the industry."
Lester Kite retired from .tl-
industry in 1952 and his son,
Lester Kite Sr., took over the
business. Lester Kite Sr.
retired in the 1980s, when L.J.
Kite Jr. took over the business.
Kite supplies timber to
various producers, including
Tatum Brothers Lumber
Company, Georgia Pacific,
Gilman Paper Company and
Rayonier. He even supplies
some cypress, to mills in
Georgia.
As you can imagine, Kite
learned a lot from both his
father and grandfather that.has
helped him over the years.
"All of the knowledge that
(my father) had put me where I
am today, as far as him telling
me how to do a deal or work a
timber tract," Kite said. "I
wouldn't have known what I
know today if not for my
grandfather and father.",
Kite said he finds the timber
industry, exciting and the thing
that excites' him the most is-
buying timber.
"It's the excitement of
getting, out there hnd
everybody doing their
calcAlations on the timber,"
Kite said. "Whoever can come

Getting ready
to get ready


By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors
Editor
The fall hunting season is
just around the corner. In our
zone, archery season opens
Sept. 24, dog training begins
Oct. 1 and muzzleloading gun
season starts Oct. 29, followed
by general gun season on Nov.
12. All four of these Saturdays
are already marked in red on
many of our calendars and
many of us have been going
over our equipment and fixing
the little things that broke last
season.
Preparation
We all have our priorities,
but all hunters should do a
safety check first thing. Are
the safeties on all equipment
functioning properly ? If not,


Jerrells, Miller
win weekly
bass tourney
The team of Kyle Jerrells'
and Kelly Miller caught the
largest bass, a 6.47-pounder,
and also took first place with a
total catch of 9.26 pounds. in
the Bald Eagle weekly bass
tournament on Lake Santa Fe
last week.
Bruce Bridwell and George
Deloach came in second with
8.83 pounds; followed .b.
Robert "Blakdl and& Justin
Russell with 8.10 pounds. Don
House and Keith Chapman
placed fourth with 6.86
pounds.
This week's Wednesday
tournament was the last prior
to the grand finale, which will
take place Wednesday, Aug.
24. Cash prizes of more than
$3,500 will be awarded.
The tournament is sponsored
by Bald'Eagle Bait and Tackle
in Keystone Heights.


now is the time to get your
hardware to the gunsmith.
Feeders ready? Tree stands
safe and operational? Scouting
done? Food plots maintained?


Shooting lanes cleared? Lease
permission forms signed? First
aid kit prepped? Mosquito
flame thrower ready. (OK, just
kidding, but, we've all felt like
lettin' 'em hold it one time! I
prefer the Thermacell.)
And, possibly the most
important thing of all-are all
the "Honey Do's" in fact
DONE?
When in dangerous
situations, I have always been
a proponent of using the buddy
system. Perhaps a buddy can
help you with all your chores
one Saturday and get all of
your list done. Then, you can
help him the next week.
Besides, there is safety in
numbers when dealing with
dangerous animals.

The Bradford Sportsmen's Farm, owned and
operated since 1990 by Pat Welch (left) and Al
Stefanelli, is about to add a 700-yard long rifle range
to the more than 180 acres of sporting clay, rifle and
pistol ranges presently available to the sportsman.


overlooked ways that we can
stay on top of our game is to
regularly visit the practice
range. I recently had the
privilege of spending several
hours at the Bradford
Sportsmen's Farm in Graham
with Al Stefanelli and Pat
Welch, owners and operators
of a beautiful I 80-acre
shooting farm just a few miles
southwest of Starke on S.R.
227 (S.W. 106" Ave.).
Constantly growing and
expanding to .meet the
sportsman's needs, the
Bradford Sportsmen's Farm
offers 20 stations for sporting
clays, two rifle ranges (300
and 600 yards), two pistol
ranges, one skeet one "crazy
quail" and one dove tower.
There are two National-Rifle-
Association-certified pistol
instructors and one National-
Sporting-Clays-Association-
certified shotgun instructors
available. There are also
monthly concealed weapons
classes, which are usually held
on Saturday.
Presently, the range is open-
Wednesdays, Saturdays and
Sunday, with regularly
scheduled shooting
tournaments that draw shooters

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

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

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

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


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

varying needs of seniors. This enables a resident to adjust and add to the list of ADUs

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


those times when a small break in routine is necessary.

replace graduates Jason
Rodriguez and Jereimy Brown,
respectively.
Mitchell has big shoes to fill,
stepping in for Brown, but
Nobles is high on Mitchell's
ability.
"I tell people there isn't-
much of a difference (between
Mitchell and Brown)," Nobles
said. "He's a quality kid just
like Jeremy Brown is. They're
both short, thick kids who can
run and play. Josh has.just-got
to learn to read the holes a
little bit better."
Returning at tight end is
senior Kasey Nobles, who has
proven to be valuable, whether
he's blocking or catching--
passes and running through
would-be-tacklers.
"He's probably our
workhorse on offense as far as
toughness and getting things
going," Nobles said.
Nobles could have been
forgiven if he was concerned
about his group of offensive
linemen. The Tigers lost
graduates Michael Esford,
fishingg Jonathon Rodgers and
,n are Brandon Williams, but do
stone return seniors Darin Hendricks

.! Nobles said Bell and
Hendricks are proven talents
and Barlow is "a tough nut you
can't crack." However, both
the Shuler and Willis graded out
it the well during the spring, leaving
s. Nobles feeling pretty good
about the line.
"I think we're going to be
fine ais long as we stay
healthy." Nobles said.
Junior Austen Roberts steps
in at quarterback, replacing
graduate Brandon Davis.
Roberts, however, has quite a
bit of experience, including in
the postseason. He shared
playing time with Ryan Green
in 2003 and started many of
the Tigers' games.
"That's the thing we
like-he got that experience."
said Nobles, who said Roberts
has probably thrown only two
bad passes so far in practice
S(as of Aug. 91
On defense, Nobles. is"
excited about his linebackers,
including Brendan Odom in
the middle. Nobles said Odom,
a senior, is an invaluable
leader, calling him "the straw
that stirs our drink on
defense."
Joining Odom as returning'
outside linebackers are seniors
Kevin Alexander and Austin
Emery. Nobles calls Alexander
S "a quiet leader" and Emery
"our version of John Lynch."
l hThen there's sophomore
Aaron Dukes, who has a
chance to be a standout
to linebacker, as. well, Nobles-
said.
"Those linebackers, I think
': they're as good as anybody in
the area," Nobles said. "That's-
probably as good a set of

linebackers as there is in the
state."
The defensive line returns
senior Willie Oliver, who will
have to play with a cast this
year because of a broken wrist,
and seniors Steven Baggett and
Josh Blunk. Baggeit and Blunk
are each approximately 6-4
and weigh 295 and 280
pounds, respectively.
"'They're tough to move,"
Nobles said. "We go against
them in practice and that really
does help iour offense) out."
Six to eight players are
battling for spots in the
secondary. Senior Chris
Perr 's return from a knee
injury will be a big boost to the
secondary. Nobles said. Also,
the -. secondary -feturns
sophomore Savontd Edwards.
who is performing well. but
has to stay healthy, Nobles
said.
Senior William Lee is one
player who is battling for a.-
spot in the secondary. Nobles
said Lee had a good spring and
is performing well so far in
practices.
Another player who should
help out in the secondary is
junior Brandon Shoup. who
will also help out at linebacker'
Nobles said.
How the secondary comes
together could be a key for the
Tigers. Nobles said the
secondary was the weakest
area of the team during the
spring and the Tigers already
proved to be vulnerable
somewhat to the pass last
season. The Tigers yielded just
two rt'n"b- f '-t 50li '5y, d '-,
last season. Nobles said, but"
the team did give up some big
pass plays. One of those was a
48-yard touchdown pass on a
fourth-and-7 play that gave
Pensacola Catholic the lead
and. the-win in the regional
finals. .
The Tigers will face" one
team this season that is
accomplished at passing the
ball-Ocala Trinity Catholic,
which is a- new district'
opponent for the Tigers.
Union is in District 4, which
is also comprised of Chiefland,
P.K. Yonge and Newberry.
"We feel like we're in the
toughest 2B district in the
state," Nobles said.
Then there's the non-district
schedule that includes Class ;


2A runner-up Madison County
and Class 2A South Sumter, a
9-1 Class 3A team last season,
which Nobles referred to as a
mid-state Madison County.
Spiller and Nobles both said
the tough schedule w ill benefit
the Tigers, though neither is
willing to talk about possibly
playing for a state
championship at this moment
in time.

"We're just going to tak -

Robby (Pruitt). You take it one
game at a time. Right now-,--
