Citizen questions

commission about trees


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
During its Nov. 21 regular
meeting, the Union County
Board of County
Commissioners was
questioned as to what was
being done to resolve the issue
of -trees being cut down at the
O.J. Phillips recreational
complex.
Shands Howard addressed
the board during the public
comment portion of the
meeting.
"I read the paper like most
people do in Union County,"
said Howard. "And I read
about the timber being cut."
Howard was referring to
articles in the Sept. 2 and Oct.
22 editions of the Union
County Times. The articles
detailed how trees at the
complex had been cut down
without the board's
knowledge.
"I don't think someone from
Union County would go and
cut timber on public property
unless he had permission from
someone he considered an
authority," said Howard. "Yet
when I read the paper, four
county commissioners knew
nothing about it. If the paper's
correct,. it was never even
discussed in a public meeting
prior to that."
Howard then took the
commission to task on what
their action would be..


"The timber can't be put
back. You can't go back and
discuss it and vote on if you
want to sell it," said Howard.
"But you can't stick your head
in the sand either. The fact you
didn't know about it, does not
relieve you of the obligation."
He then urged
commissioners to find the
responsible party for the
action.
"As a citizen, it looks like to
me that we need to know who
authorized it," said Howard.
"And what's going to be done
to make sure you, who are in
charge of county property,
won't let it happen again. I
Jcn't know a public official
who has. not said 'Elect me,
and I'll do what's right.'
What's right is to find out who
authorized this. I'm positive
you have the authority to do
that."
I He then told the commission
if they were not willing to get
to the bottom of it, he knew
someone that would.
"But if you don't want to
take it on yourselves, Charlie
Crist and the ethics committee
will do it for you," said
Howard. "Rmember, when
outsiders come in and ask
questions, it always causes 'a
stink."
Chairman Wayne Smith then
asked board members if they

LB Christmas parade

set for Dec. 9


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The city of Lake Butler has
set its annual Christmas parade
for Friday,-Dec. 9, beginning
at7 p.m.
The parade will start out on
S.W. Third St. in front of
Rhodes Barbecue. The parade
will proceed down Third St. to
S.R. 238. From S.R. 238, the
parade will proceed west on
Main St. From there, the route
will take it north of Fifth Ave.
Finally the parade will head
west down Third St., ending
where it began.
Last year's parade had more
than 50 entries, 25 of which
were illuminated with holiday
lights. This year, City Manager
Richard Tillis said he is hoping
for even more'entries.
"This year we encourage a
special effort be put forth to


make this the best parade event
ever for the residents of Lake
Butler and Union County,"
said Tillis. "Especially for each
and every child in our
community."
The theme for this year's
parade is "Christmas Around
the-World". Parade entries will
be judged on several criteria
including originality, materials
used and how well they follow
the theme. Organizers have
two categories, non-profit and
for-profit, they will put the
entries in. Plaques will be
awarded to the first, second
and third place entries in each
category.
Organizers are asking parade
participants to follow these
guidelines for their entries.
o All entries should reflect

Safety urged for holiday season


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
With the holiday season
upon us, the Union County
Volunteer Fire Department
reminds everyone to be safe
this holiday season.
Each year fires associated
with the holiday season injure
more than 1,200 individuals.
They also cause more than $25
million in damage to homes.
There are simple life-saving
steps you can take to ensure a
safe and happy holiday. The
following tips can help
individuals greatly reduce their
chances of becoming a holiday
fire statistic.
Special precautions need to
be taken while keeping a live
Christmas tree in your home.
Needles on fresh trees should
be green and hard to pull back
from branches. Needles should
not break if the tree has been
freshly cut. the trunk of a
fresh tree will be tacky to the


touch. If you bounce a tree on
the ground 'and many needles
fall off, chances are that tree is
probably dried out and is a fire
hazard.
Trees should not be placed
too close to heat sources. The
heat will dry out the tree,
making it more of a possible
fire hazard. Keep tree stands
filled with water at all times.
Fresh Christmas trees should
not be left up longer than two
weeks.
Holiday lights are another
potential holiday hazard.
Inspect holiday lights each
year for frayed wires, bare'
spots, gaps in insulation,
broken or cracked sockets and
excessive kinking before
putting them up. Use only
lighting listed by an approved
testing laboratory. Any holiday
lights should be turned off
before going to bed or leaving
the house.
When installing lights, no
more than three strands should
be linked unless the


manufacturer specifies it is
safe. Connect strings' of lights
to an extension cord before
plugging the cord into an
outlet. Wires should be
checked periodically
throughout the holiday season.
Wires should not be warm to
the touch.
All decorations should be
nonflammable or flame-
retardant and placed away
from heat vents. Wrapping
paper should never be thrown
into a fire. Some paper can
throw off sparks and produce a
chemical buildup that can
cause an explosion in the
home. Be certain that the
artificial tree you purchase is
flame retardant as well.
Avoid using lit candles if at
all possible. If you do use
candles, make sure they are in
stable holders and place them
where they. cannot ,be easily
knocked ovhr. Never leave a

UCHS graduation rate among top in state


By GAIL D. LIVINGSTON
Special to the Times
Union County schools have
much to be thankful for this
holiday season-students are
educated in a supportive
community, strong parents and
leaders assist school personnel
in their jobs, and there is to a
great extent, success in every
area of the students' lives.
Last week Florida Governor
Jeb Bush released the high
school graduation rates for
2004-2005, with the Union
County School District once
again ranking high. The
district's high graduation rate
was 84.13 percent, ranking 111h
in the state of Florida. Union
County High School had an
individual school score of'
88.40 percent.
"We are graduating- an
exceptional number of
students," said Carlton Faulk,
Union County superintendent
of schools. "Our schools, as a
district, are.making a positive

had any questions for Howard.
"'The only thing I have is I
asked when I found out when
it was cut," said Commissioner
Ricky Jenkins. "I asked 'Who
cut the timber?' I was given
the answer, 'I don't know and
don't know why?.'" '
Smith said he could only
speak on his own behalf.
"Far as I know, and I can
only speak for myself, I didn't
know anything about it," said
Smith. "The two people that
authorized the cutting of the
timber said that I told them
they could cut it, but I did not
say that."
w He then went on to discuss
what action had been taken.
"We got the money, what
they got out of the timber,'
said Smith. "But we have not
done anything else."
He went on to explain what
action the county would have
taken to properly cut the
timer.
"We don't have a $3,500
(limit)," said Smith. "We have
to declare it surplus property
and go out for bid."
"Was that done?" said
Howard.
"No sir," said Smith.
Commissioner Karen Cossey
inquired as to how much
money the county did receive.
"$1,500," said Smith.
"Do you know how many
loads there were?" asked
Howard.
"Six-and-a-half," said Smith,
"You're positive?" asked
Howard.
"The only thing I can say is
that's what they told me," Said
Smith. "I don't know how
many it was, I only know what
they told me."
Howard then gave Smith an
education on the price of
timber.
"Well, I think you'll find
that timber being cut at that
time was worth $50 a cord to
the county," said Howard. "If
you check it out, you'll find
that ygu should have got about
$5,000."
Smith then gave an
explanation as to why the
county did not receive more.
"Well, I talked to the man
who cut the timber, and he said
.he was not going to pay any
more then he did," said Smith.
-"It--was--because--it- was--upt
.against .hu:ildJngs and.
powerlines."
Smith went on to say that he
attempted to reason with the
individual, but it was to no
avail.
"I tried to reason with him
and the two people from the
prison system that authorized
the cutting of the timber," said
Smith: "But they got out of
line with me, so I dropped it
and told them to give us the
money they got and we would
go from there. That's what
they did."
Howard then clarified
Smith's statement.
"The person that cut that
timber, he was authorized by
prison employees?" asked
Howard.
"Yes sir," said Smith.
Howard thanked the board
and returned to his seat.
Smith would not reveal what
person had cut the timber, or
the names of the two prison
employees who authorized the
cutting.
The session ended .with the
board taking "no action on the
matter.

King House Inn Opens this Saturday


Special to the Times


After several years of
preparation, the King House
Inn Bed and Breakfast and
Country Restaurant will open
its doors to the general public
on Saturday, Dec. 3.
The King House will be
open to all between the hours
of 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. with free
guided tours and door prizes.
The first meals will be served
that evening.
For the owners, John and
Jamie Dekle, the King House
has grown from a long shot
pipe dream to a reality. The
Dekles acquired the house
from family members of John
about three years ago. At that
time, the 4,000-square-foot
Victorian home was in a state
of disrepair. The Dekles
purchased the house after the
death of John's grandmother
Anne Dekle, in order to restore
her childhood home.
"We bought it primarily for
sentimental reasons," Dekle
said. "The bed and breakfast
and restaurant idea were more
of an afterthought as a way to
pay for the restoration."
The project came with a
little more than the Dekles
expected.
"The restoration proved to
be a monumental undertaking,
Dekle said. "When we bought
the house it had 13 window
units, pink carpeting, a
plumbing system that didn't
work well, and a leaky roof to
name a few of its many
problems. We purchased the
home thinking we could
borrow a little money and have
it up and running in a year but
we found out that was very
naive thinking."
The Dekles ended up
investing over $250,000 in the
restoration and spending many
nights and weekends doing
much of the work on their
own. With the help of family
and friends, the couple was
able to cut down the cost of the
project.
"When we got the house,"
Dekle said, "It did not feel
much like a grand Victorian,
but it felt like home. I have
many fond memories of
plavina in -thehJious ..ajchi


and it has always intrigued me.
Although it has not been
sunshine and roses all the time,
my wife and I have created
many more fond memories
with our family working on the
house."
Dekle said he feels the work
helped create those lasting
memories.
"The restoration helped
create many fun, painful and
hilarious memories to reflect
on with our family and
friends," Dekle said.


Big Red

donations
The Big Red Christmas
Drive is now accepting
donations for its annual
event. The group is looking
for new or slightly used toys
and clothes that will be
given to needy families all
over Union County.
Monetary donations will be
accepted as well. Donations
can be dropped off at Union
County Volunteer Fire
Department station five on
S.R. 121 in Lake Butler or

King House Inn owners Jamie and John Dekle stand in
front of their new bed and breakfast and restaurant that
will open this Saturday.


He recalled one time when
the project created one of those
painful memories.
"Once I opened up a wall
and a large beam fell out and
hit me in the face," Dekle said.
Dekle, who works as a
commercial real estate lawyer
in Jacksonville, went to work
the next day with a black eye.
Another time, Dekle was on
the widows walk cautiously
leaning out over the edge to
repair the roof.
"My dad showed up to help
by poking his head through the
hatch and yelling, 'Hello!',
Dekle recalls. "I nearly fell off.
We feel like we have added
another interesting page to the
rich history of the house."
The house, which is now a
landmark listed on the
National Register of Historic
Places, was purchased in 1884
by John A. King, an early
resident of Lake Butler. King
moved from Missouri to raise
his children in a warmer
climate and farm cotton. At
that time, the house was only
a two bedroom hall and parlor
the Victorian addition onto the
house between 1896 and 1898,
a process that was slowed by a
Category 3 hurricane that hit
Lake Butler in 1896.
King was a devout man who
started the first Sunday school
in Lake Butler. His large
Bible, which is over. 115 years
old, is being donated .to the
historical society for display.
King played a major role in
the development of Lake
Butler by developing it's first


subjects or FCAT skills.
The tutoring will be
ongoing. Parents wishing to
. enroll their children in
tutoring can either fill out
the form sent home with
their child or pick one up at
the front office. For more

Geraldine Griffis at (386)

give business lots to any other
citizen who promised in return
to build a brick building and
never sell whiskey. The
Dekles joke that they have
honored his request by only
offering beer and wine on the
menu.
Incidentally, Mr. King never
raised a row of cotton and
opened a pharmacy instead.
He did, however, raise several
children who played major
c roles in the history of Lake
Butler. Lake Butler's oldest
residents remember the affable
Dr. Seeber King.
King served as the town
doctor for many years.
Initially, he made house calls
in a horse and buggy before
being the first person to
purchase a car in Union
County. Some of Dr. King's
medical equipment and ledgers
are also being donated to the

County graduates that endures
to this day. The youngest
daughter, Aura King, designed
the Victorian addition to the
home while still in her teens
after attending art school at
Stetson.
Jewel Coleman received the
house from King in his late
years. Coleman moved into
the house with her husband
George as caretakers after
King's wife was hit by the train
that once passed by the house.-
King's wife eventually died
from her injuries and the
Coleman's lived out the
remainder of their lives in the
home. Their sole child, Anne
Coleman Dekle, inherited the
home upon Jewel's death.
Anne graduated as
valedictorian from UCHS and
later returned there to teach
and coach girl's basketball.
History has found a way of
repeating itself now that Jamie
Dekle also teaches at UCHS
and coaches girl's basketball.
The King House is rich in
the history of its predecessors.
The four bedrooms available to
the public are each named after
people who lived there. Each
of the rooms are decorated
with antiques and relics of the
King's and Coleman's.
Some of Coleman's recipes
are also available on the menu.
The King House will serve
breakfast, lunch and dinner to
the general public in addition
to letting out rooms. Jamie's
mother, Kathy Lyons, will
manage the business.
The opening of the King'
House is the culmination of a
long awaited dream for John
and Jamie. If you ask them if
it was worth the trouble, the
answer is a reluctant "yes.'
"It has not been easy
restoring the house and
opening the business on top of
working full-time jobs and
raising a newborn," Dekle
said. "But I know my great-
grandmother and grandmother
would be proud of what we
have done so our initial
intention has been met. We
are now ready to'start the next
step of the long journey."
A copy of the King House
menu is available in this

City sells section of

Tillis property


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On Nov. 14, city of Lake
Butler city commissioners
'approved the sale of a section
city-owned property to Tom
Jenkins Electrical Inc.
The property, known as the
Tillis Industrial Property, is the
former site of the Lake Butler
Apparel Company. The
electrical company bought a
128 by 185 foot section of the
property located on the
northwest comer of the lot.
"We agreed to a price of
$10,000 for the property," said
City Manager Richard Tillis.
"This was based upon
construction of a facility to
house his business operations,
thus adding a utility customer
and additional tax base value."
The deal has been in the
works for more than 11


Partners to
combat hunger
Over the past several
months, Hurricanes Katrina,
Wilma and Rita ravaged our
Gulf Coast states.
Through joint efforts with
states, food banks, faith and
community-based
organizations, and schools,
hundreds of thousands of the
victims were able to receive
meals and emergency food
boxes at shelters, and more
than 960,000 households
received over $550 million in
emergency. food stamps to feed
their families. Food Banks
across the country shipped
more than 1,700 truckloads of
food from. their own
inventories to the, states across
the affected region.
"While we are proud of the
creativity and flexibility in
meeting the needs, we remain
steadfast in our combined
effort to achieve real, lasting
results in reducing and
preventing hunger," said Eric
Bost, Undersecretary for 'the
United States Department of
Agriculture. "Combating
hunger across America
requires leadership,
commitment and partnerships
at all levels. Our nation's 15
domestic nutrition assistance
programs including Food
Stamps, schools meals,
commodity food donation
programs and Women Infants
and Children, serve one in five
Americans each day."
Bost said America has a
long and distinguished record'
of providing nutrition
assistance to children, low-
income families and the
elderly.
"That's why we are working
in a public-private partnership
ensuring that all who are
eligible know about the
Federal nutrition assistance
programs," said Bost.
"Helping needy individuals
and families access these
programs with dignity and
respect has been, and
continues to be, a high priority
for the President, Secretary


Johanns, myself and our
partners."
Partners, including states,
national' anti-hunger
organizations, food banks,
faith and community based
organizations, and schools are
critical in joint efforts to serve
those in need. Combined'
efforts to make nutrition
assistance more accessible to
more people have been
successful. Since 2001, 5.8
million more eligible people
are receiving food stamps; 1.6
million more children receive a
free or reduced price school
lunch; over 1.5 million more
children receive school
breakfast and over 400,000
more women, infants and
children receive assistance
through WIC.
"These investments and
achievements serve as the
foundation for the work that


months.
S"Almost a year ago, Tom
Jenkins and I discussed his
purchasing a lot on the
northwest corner of the old
building site," said Tillis.
"Concluding these
arrangements was delayed
(because of) the construction
of city hall."
According to Tillis, Tom
Jenkins, owner of Tom Jenkins
Electrical Inc., desired a larger
portion of the property for his
business.
"But we reserved part of the
property for the construction of
a new fire station," said Tillis.
The motion cleared with a 5-
0 vote. City Attorney John
Maines was instructed by the
board to prepare the necessary
documents to finalize the deal.

remains to be done," said Bost
"But there is still need and
with your assistance, we can
do more to meet that need."
In the aftermath of the
hurricanes, all are minded
that many fellow citizens
continue to need help. Even
today, many individuals and
families who are eligible for
our nutrition assistance
programs do not participate.
"The American spirit is a
generous one," said Bost "We
have witnessed .the outpouring
of courage, kindness and
generosity over the last several
months and throughout
history."
So, what more can be done?
As the holidays approach,
Americans can positively
affect the lives of others
through some simple acts.
Additional partners,
individuals, and organizations
are needed at the community,
state and federal level to
ensure that all who are eligible
for nutrition assistance can
receive it with dignity and
respect. In local communities,
through local food banks, food
pantries, and soup kitchens,
you can help by volunteering
time or donating money and
food. You can help to ensure
that those in need know about
federal nutrition programs.
"You have the power to
make a difference and we
invite each of you to join us in
reducing hunger right here. at
home," said Bost.

students and the community."
The graduation rate o
neighboring schools (see
accompanying chart) has no
been as high as Union Count3
- for the past seven years. The
next closest graduation rate foi
a neighboring county for 2004.
2005 was 79.4 percent foi
Lafayette County. Levy
County had the lowest
graduation rate percentage of
:64.8 percent for the 2004-2005
year.
"As you can easily see from
-" the chart, our district is having
great success," said Faulk. Our
students scored higher than all
of our neighboring districts.
We are preparing our students
well. A high school diploma is
a great foundation for the
future."
Faulk noted that the success
of the students in Union
County could not be attributed
to any one specific aspect of
the district's program; rather it
was the culmination of years of
work by every person in the
county.
"Every employee in this
district can take pride in these
scores and their true meaning,"
said Faulk "Our employees
have gone the extra mile and
have given their all to their
students.
"'I would like to personally
thank the students, parents,
community leaders, faculty
and staff of every school in
this district for their hard
work." Faulk continued.
"Graduation day is the final
step in a 13- year process.
From the first day of
kindergarten until graduation
day, we have all invested in the
success of each individual
student.
S "Union County gives thanks
for many things this holiday
season and at the top of the list
is the exceptional graduate rate
for our district," Faulk
concluded. "Congratulationsf
one and all."
Andersen-Davis Top

Superintendent Faulk also
wanted to extend special
congratulations to Morgan
Andersen-Davis, who
Graduated from Union County
-High Slhoo1l in June.~2005., and
was named the Top Scholar of
the graduating class.
Andersen-Davis will be one of

eligibility.
In addition the Academic
Top Scholar award will
provide a fixed annual amount
of $1,500, prorated by term

Bronson

urges food

safety for

holidays


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H
Bronson is urging consumers
to familiarize themselves with
food safety measures as the
holiday season approaches.
More than 76 million people
are sickened by food borne
illnesses every year in the U-S
and more than 5000 cases are
fatal.
"Many people have buffets
for holiday meals and for
parties, and it's important that
they know what can and
cannot be left out for an
extended period of time,"
SBronson said. "In the chaos of
the holidays, it is important.
that consumers be familiar


with food safety tips and
follow them."
The Department's Division
of Food Safety is Responsible
for assuring the public a safe
and wholesome- food supply
through permitting and
inspections of food
establishments and lab testing
food products. But the most
important food borne illness
prevention measures are in the
home. Food poisoning is
caused by bacteria that is often
undetectable by sight, smell or
taste.


Students learn about magnets


Rock Rider and VFW member Ed Rogers, Strawberry
Queen Megan Giebeig and Santa Claus all helped last
Saturday.


As part of the Union County 4-H Enrichment Program, Elizabeth Vandiver's
Kindergarten class experimented with magnets. With the help of Colan Coody, 4-H
coordinator at the Union County Extension Office, students learned that magnets
repel and attract each other and other metal items. He used the illustration of
repelling with Santa Claus in the North Pole and Chilly Willie the penguin in the
South Pole. It showed how they will always be apart, even as the Earth rotates.
Coody also used iron filings to show the students that a magnet is strongest at its
poles. Using magnets, the students experimented with different objects to see
which were magnetic. "The students had been learning about magnets so they
enjoyed experimenting and learning more about them and how they work," said
Vandiver. Pictured learning about magnets, are (I-r) Zach Womack, Amber Mock,
Justin Pilcher, Payton Westfall-Jones, Shamar Highland, Alex Sullivan, Garrett
Allen, Amanda Blanton and John Holt. Coody is in the foreground.

One top concern this time of
year is the increased risk of
illness resulting from stuffing
turkeys prior to cooking, which
is not recommended by food
safety experts.
Here are some other tips to
follow for a safe holiday
season: I
o Thaw the turkey. in
the refrigerator, not the
counter. Room temperatures
promote bacteria growth.
Allow one day of defrosting
,for.each five pounds of turkey
-weight.
0 Cook the stuffing
separate from the turkey.
Stuffing put in an uncooked
turkey is susceptible to
bacteria growth.
Cook to the proper
temperatures. A whole turkey
should reach an internal
temperature of 180 degrees.
The stuffing in a turkey should
reach a temperature of 165
degrees. Cooking a turkey at
less than 325 degrees is unsafe
because it allows the bird and
stuffing to remain in the
danger zone for bacterial
growth for too long.
Don't interrupt the
cooking process Interrupting
the cooking process promotes
Bacteria growth.
Slice the, turkey
before refrigerating. Whole
turkeys do not store safely in
the refrigerator. Put the slices
into shallow containers, cover
and refrigerate.
o Keep cold foods cold
and hot foods hot.
Be careful with
holiday buffets. Servings
should be kept small and
replenished often directly from
the stove or refrigerator. The
longer food is kept out,
especially beyond two hours,
the higher' the risk of food
poisoning.
o Carefully store
leftovers. To speed up the
cooling process, put leftovers
into shallow, covered
containers. Perishable foods
left at room temperature for
longer than two hours are
susceptible to bacterial growth.
With a greater potential for
food poisoning over the
holidays, it is important that
consumers follow safe food
handling, preparation and
storage practices.

UC schools celebrate Red Ribbon Week 2005


Union County Schools
celebrated Red Ribbon Week
Oct. 24-28.
It was a busy week with
many activities and events to
promote a healthy drug-free
lifestyle to our students in
Union County. The theme this
year was "Show Good
Character by Being Drug-
Free!". As always, the event
had a dress-up theme everyday
during Red Ribbon Week.
The schools along with the
community enjoyed
participating in the daily dress-
up themes. Students from all
three schools participated in an
essay and poster contest. The
winners will be announced in a
later issue along with their
pictures.
Lt. Gene Redding from the
Florida National Guard Drug
Demand Reduction Program
visited the elementary school.
He spoke to students in grades
2-4 about the dangers of
gateway drugs (alcohol and
tobacco) as well as the dangers
found in the medicine cabinets
at home.
Students were encouraged to
never go into the medicine
cabinets and never take
medicine from anyone other
than your parents or a trusted
adult. The Students Against
Destructive Decisions Club,
from the high school, made
treat bags and delivered them
to every child at the
elementary school.
The treat bags had Smarties
candy in them with a
bookmark that said, "Smarties
at LBES don't use drugs!"
The back of the bookmark had
a list of ten things you can be
drug-free.
Partners in Prevention of
Substance Abuse visited in the
science classrooms at the
middle school. The group was
made up of students from the
University of Florida's College
of Dentistry. Their
presentation was on the
prevention of tobacco use.
The middle school ran anti-
drug messages all week on the
morning Tiger News
Network. On Oct. 25, the
middle school hosted the
SMAC championship. The
first 100 children through the
gates at the football game
received a treat bag containing
an anti-drug message.
The high school students ran
public service accouncments
all week on WUCR 107.9.
Morning announcements with
anti-drug messages and
statistics were given over the
intercom by S.A.D.D. students
during the week.
Some teachers did
curriculum on alcohol
prevention and other
prevention activities within
their classes. On Friday night
the first 100 children through
the gates at the football game
were given treat bags with an
anti-drug message in them.
The cheerleaders threw out
mini Frisbees during the
game.
The Frisbees had the anti-
drug message, "Drugs don't
fly with me!" The week was
full of activities and
opportunities for the students
to commit or renew their
commitment to live a healthy
and drug-free lifestyle.

Bronson

deploys

inspectors

Florida Agriculture and
7Consumer Services
"Commissioner Charles H.
TBronson announced today that
4his department is conducting a
,sweep of pet stores during the
=next five weeks to ensure that
sutrch establishments are'
-complying with regulations
-that protect consumers in the
purchasee of pets.
At the same time, a public
-:service announcement
-informing consumers of their
:rights under the pet law will
-begin airing on television
-throughout Florida in mid-
'December as holiday shoppers
;contemplate the purchase of a
:pet for themselves or a family
"member. It can be viewed at
-http://www.florida-
gagriculture.com/video.htm.
"Purchasing a pet during the
holidays can be a rewarding
experience and bring great joy
to a child and other family
memberss," Bronson said. "But
-you want to make sure that.
.you're doing business with a
:reputable dealer who knows
:and follows the law to avoid
:what sometimes can
'-:deteriorate into an unfortunate
,-:situation."
'6 Toward that end, inspectors
iare visiting numerous pet
:stores and dealers between
-now and January 1 to make
-sure that a store or dealer is
'complying with Statute 828.29
Sa law that imposes certain
-obligations on sellers and
offers recourse to consumers in
-the event that problems arise.
"- Under the law, dogs and cats
-must be at least eight weeks of


age when sold or ottered for
sale, and each animal must be
accompanied by a 'Florida
health certificate signed by a
licensed and accredited
veterinarian within the past 30
days documenting required
vaccinations, tests and
treatments for internal or
external parasites.
In addition, the law requires
a dealer to provide a purchaser
with information on the
buyer's rights under the law,
which includes the right to
return, exchange or receive
reimbursement for veterinary
expenses if an animal is
deemed unfit by a licensed
veterinarian within 14 days of
purchase.
Aside from making sure that
a dealer is complying with the
law, consumers should also
consider suitability when
purchasing an animal, Bronson
Ssaid. For example, some
-*breeds'"f dogs may be less
appropriate if there are infants
or young children in; a home.
Likewise, consumers may
want to think twice before
purchasing a large animal if
they live in a small dwelling.
Bronson offered the
following tips to consumers
who are considering or
planning to purchase a dog or
cat:
o Don't buy on impulse
research the size and breed of
the animal for suitability with
your lifestyle and
circumstance.
o Examine the health
certificatethat is required to be
presented *upon sale for
completeness and compliance
with the law.
O If there is a problem
with your pet after purchase,
contact the seller immediately.

Immediately following the
parade, Santa and Mrs. Claus

Santa to get their new bike.
"This year will see Santa

Tillis. "He has several elves
working overtime to see to it."
Those elves come in the

house with. burning.candles.....
The holiday season is a great
time to ensure that smoke
alarms are in good working
order. Alarms should be tested
monthly. They should be kept
clean and equipped with fresh
batteries. It is recommended
that batteries be changed every
six months.
Caution should be taken
when using fireplaces as well.
Before using a fireplace, have
it cleaned and inspected. While
a fire is burning, use a screen
and keep flammable items
away from the fireplace,
including throw rugs and
stockings. Real greenery is not
recommended for mantel
decoration. '
Holiday cooking can, be a
potential fire hazard as well.
Turkey fryers have become
very popular in recent years.
While these propane-fueled oil
kettles cook a wonderful
holiday turkey, the potential
for a fire is great. They can
easily tip over,, spilling
dangerous hot oil everywhere.
Oil can also drip on the open
flame creating a grease fire.
Individuals using a turkey
fryer should keep a fire
extinguisher close at hand.
While doing any holiday
cooking these tips can help you
avoid potential fire hazards..
Keep the kitchen off-limits to
young children and adults that
are not helping with food
preparations. When cooking,
do not wear clothing with
loose sleeves or dangling
jewelry. Cook on back burners
whenever possible. Turn pot
handles in so they don't extend
over the edge of the stove.
Never leave cooking
unattended. If you must leave
the kitchen, turn off the stove
or have someone else watch
what is being cooked.
Following these safety tips
will help you and your family
have a safe and happy holiday
season.

Aktion Club members pay a visit to Starke Kiwanis Club


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
What is an Aktion Club?
Several members of the
Aktion Club in Starke
discussed just that at the Nov.
22 Kiwanis Club of Starke
meeting. By doing so, they
provided an example of one of
the benefits of being a
member.
Darcia Wells, the recording
secretary of the Aktion Club of
Starke, talked of how an
Aktion Club is a community-
service organization for adults
with disabilities. One of the
goals of an Aktion Club is to
provide its members
opportunities for social
interaction.
Wells, Heidi Jones, Pat.
Milner, Chrissy Richardson
and Sheria Tyson had their
opportunity to interact with
Kiwanis members by not only
joining them for lunch, but by
taking turns at the podium to-
talk about the club.
"I could get up here and talk
about the Aktion Club, what
they do, how well they do, but
these ladies asked if they could
have a part in the program,"
said Johnnie Mae Mosley,
Aktion Club sponsor.
Wells spoke of the important
role the Kiwanis Club of
Starke, in cooperation with the
Arc of Bradford County, plays
as a sponsor of the Aktion
Club and how the club has
benefited her and others.
"Individuals who live with a
disability often have many
talents, but little chance to
apply them," Wells said. "Too
often they are dependent on
others when they could be

meeting. Pictured above (from left) are: Johnnie Mae Mosley, Aktion Club

doing valuable things in the
world around them.
"Many agencies do not have
the funding or staff needed to
provide the recreational and
social activities we need, so
the volunteer effort of the
Kiwanis Club can address
those concerns."
Richardson, who is the
club's secretary, started off by
giving the Kiwanis members a
little bit of a history lesson.
"The Aktion Club of Starke
was formed in December
1989," Richardson said. "The
club started with 12 members


and now has 29 members. The
club received its charter
certificate in October 2001."
Richardson went on to say
that the club holds meetings on
the last Wednesday of every
month at Hambone's in Starke,
with an average of 20
members in attendance at each
meeting.
The Aktion Club has taken
part in several activities over
the past years, Richardson
said. Those activities include
Keep Tri-County Beautiful's
Community Cleanup Day,
-Toys for -Tots, the R.J.E.
reading program and a show of


appreciation for teachers.
S';The, club members enjoyed
taking part in the Teachers
Appreciation Day, where
members labeled apples for the
teachers in Bradford County

went ahead and set the date for
next year's festival as well -as
selecting next year's poster/T-
shirt image-the First United
Methodist Church of Starke.
The committee has
discussed the possibility of
utilizing the church next year
in past meetings.. Committee
member Cheryl Canova said
she thought it was a good idea
to go ahead and make a
decision now rather than next
year closer to the festival. She
said that would possibly allow
more artists to submit
paintings. from which the final
poster/T-shirt image is chosen.
"I think the more time you
can give people for posters the
better," Canova said, "I think
some people would enter, but
they don't because of the short
period of time."
Artists had a little less than a
month after this past festival's
image was chosen to submit
their paintings for
consideration. Canova said
Mike Barber, whose painting
was selected, spent 10 hours
one day working on it.
"Not everybody can do '


"People can go to that, look
at that. picture, blow it up and
do whatever they want to with
it," Barber said.

leading up to this year's
festival, committee members
mulled over what., they. could,-

schools," Richardson said.
Club members raised more
than $138 from sales of the
Arc of Bradford County
calendars, and the club
donated $100 to a recent
March of Dimes event,
Richardson said.
Another event club members
are involved in is the
American- Cancer Society's
Relay for Life. Jones said it is
the one event members most
enjoy.
"We took part in the
county's first walk and have
been a supporter of the


American Cancer Society for
many years," Jones said.
Jones said Aktion Club
members have also helped
provide meals to families
during the Thanksgiving and
Christmas holidays.
"Members donate food items
for the Food Pantry or buy
dinners for families in the
Bradford County area." Jones
said.
Many members serve as

City officials and residents of
Lawtey were bitterly disappointed to
see work on the new sewer lines come
to a -halt and the contractor, B.A,
Wilson, quit the job. Not only is the
job is unfinished, but Wilson is suing
the city for a number of reasons,
which officials feel are frivolous and
without merit.,
City officials began seeking a
federal grant several years ago to
install sewer lines in a community
that was built on low-lying land,
making septic tanks unacceptable in
wet weather and endangering the
health of the populace. New homes
were no longer being built in the
-community for lack of sanitary
facilities, leaving officials with few
options other than installing sewer
lines. The city didn't have the
'necessary funds for a major \civic'
project, nor did it have a tax base for
raising $2 million for construction.
The city applied for and received
'approval for a $1.3 million grant and
a loan of $832,000 for construction of,
a citywide sewer system in early
1999. Almost five years elapsed in
planning before the job was bid, with
Jacksonville Contractor B. A. Wilson
submitting the low bid at $1,098,000.
That bid was revised upward in
negotiations with the city, and was
approved at $2,040,000 in late 2004,
with construction to be complete one
year later, in 2005.
The grant and the loan totaled
$2,132,000, .an amount sufficient to
build the sewer system it was thought,
but as the year 2005 comes to a close
Wilson has been paid $1.3 million and:
the project is 55 percent completed.
The city has applied for a $600,000
Community Development Bloal
Grant to .complete the project ,and
expects approval. The overrun in
costs is blamed by city officials on the.
escalation ofprices of materials used
in construction, and they do not blame
the contractor, even though other
problems exist for which they hold
Wilson responsible.
Wilson quit the job in September
and brought suit against the city.


Work stopped more than two months
ago, and the bondholder has assumed
responsibility for completing the job.
Wilson claims the city did not pay
him in a timely manner, but City
Clerk Lisa Harley says Wilson was to
blame for his problems by submitting
faulty invoices that had to be checked
and corrected before they could be
paid.
Wilson further stated that the
backfill was unstable and did not
compact properly. The backfill dirt
was furnished at no cost by the
DuPont Corporation and consists of,
topsoil removed from their
operations. Wilson also complained .
about the cost of labor and the hattling
of the topsoil. i
Under the terms of the contract.,
Wilson is responsible for repatirtig'
streets that are cut for pipe
installation, and some people are
complaining that repairs have riot-
-been made, but Harley says the street s'
cannot be repaired until the pipes, ae
laid and tested. That complaints isn',t.I'
valid at this time.
The city doesn't have to build a
sewage disposal plant that would,,
jeopardize the project financially withA,
the additional cost. Because o.f.' e.:
penal institution sitting on the edge of
town, the Florida Department mof
Corrections agreed to allow Lawtey'
to cut into its pipeline and send the
effluent to its disposal plant at Florida
State Prison, several miles away on
S.R. 16.
The Suwannee River Water
Management District has allocated
$300,000 to Lawtey to pay for
hooking up homes to the system. That
fund remains intact. .
;4It arp'itartithalwttiasla
'done evetrhi
grant for a sewer system and bidding
the project. It's unfortunate the,
contractor quit the job half completed,
but that event was provided for by
requiring a bond trustee to fulfill the
obligation. New homes will be built
and Lawtey will begin growing when
the sewer system becomes a reality.

subject of one of my
complaints took their pit bull
dog and walked the road
behind her.
On Nov. 12 between 12:30
a.m. and 12:45 a.m. a explosive
device (cherry bomb, or
firecracker) was put in our
mailbox.The explosion was so
loud the neighbors in the back
and side heard it. There were
footprints leading away from
the box and debris from the
device in the box. When the
explosive device was used,
(cherry bomb or firecracker) we
took this as a threat against our
lives.
You say, well why didn't she
call the sheriffs department? I
did. Every time. It would take
the deputy at least a hour to a
hour and a half to arrive.
For the first incident the
deputy did do a report because
of the egging, but he said he
couldn't do anything because
we didn't know who the guilty
party 'was. When the cherry
bomb or firecracker was used,
the deputy who responded,
didn't get out of his car. He
said that fingerprints would
not be on the handle of ,box
because powder from device
would have covered them. I
saw no powder on the handle.
He stated that the footprints
would be hard to prove.


I had a meeting with Sheriff
Milner, he assured me that he,
would help me. He assigned
Sgt. McIntyre to arrange a
neighborhood meeting between
all parties concerned. I agreed
to meet with them. I have not
heard from'Sgt. McIntyre. but'
have learned from other source,
that the other two parties
would not agree to a meeting.
We have to listen to verbal
abuse from a family member of
one party. What has to happen
before the sheriffs department
can do something?
As long as people are afraid
of retaliation, Bradford County
will never be cleaned up. It
seems that victims (like us) in
this county are'looked upon as
trouble makers, all because we
have pride in our homes,
property, neighborhood and
strong moral codes we live by.
We believe that Bradford
County could be a nice place
to live'and raise a family.
I was born in this county,
my parents, grandparents before
me. As long as the parties who
are doing wrong are allowed to
do so, and, they are also
allowed to intimidate residents
who want a better place to live,
Bradford County will continue
to be less than it can be.

BC citizen is
'afraid of
retaliation'
Dear Editor:
Recently, I attended a
County Commissioners
Meeting. in which one of the
Commissioners made a
comment that several people in
his district, "said they would
file complaints, but they were
afraid of retaliation."
Well, I can relate to that. I
filed a complaint against two
individuals in my neighbor-
hood and my daughter and I
have been experiencing
retaliations. My complaints
were about trash and junk in
their yards and large trucks
being parked and repaired in a
residential area.
I was very concerned about
the impact of these activities
on my well water and the
quality of our air. The fumes
from the diesel fuel were strong.
Enough to smell at our house.
In August, on a Saturday'
night our house was egged and
-the- mailbox was torn off the
stand and taken. The following
Sunday evening my daughter
was returning home with her
dog after taking him for a walk.

Dear Editor:
As a long time resident of
Starke, I would like to say how
much this community means to
me. I am so thankful that I have
had a chance to raise my
children here.
I was also delighted when
we got a Super Wal-Mart. It
brought a lot of new jobs to
the area, and although I do not
agree'with all of Wal-Mart's
policies, I was. glad that it
.. came. .. -
After the sales on Friday, I
think- I have some serious
doubts about both Wal-Mart
and Starke.
One of the most popular
items on sale at Wal-Mart was
a laptop computer. The store
had 32 laptops. That seems like
a very scant few iteips for such


Merry
Christmas vs.

Happy
Holidays.
The following is "Just My
Opinion" but I would like to
know "What do you think,.
are you willing to change?"
What is wrong with
Christians celebrating the birth
of Jesus on his "real" birthday?
Why don't Christians just let
the world have their "Happy
Holidays" their "Santa
Clauses," their lighted trees
and all the other traditions"
that go u ith Dec 25?
. Guys, believe it or not. this
is not the da\ Jesus was born
and I can tell you e\actI\ when
it was. It \as Tishri 15 thtt is
a Je",ish feast da'\ their Ne'%
Year or Rosh Hashanah). Jesus
fulfilled etery one of the
Jewish Feast Days. OCn the
exact davs those feast
happened, in the time of Jesus,
those feast were fulfilled. The
only feast left to fulfill is the
Feast of Trumpets, and that is
the Rapture.
. Now, do Nou understand
why the Shepherds were out
watching their sheep by night?
It was not cold weather in
September.


a sale. I was one of the first
few people in line because I
imagined that there would be
very few computers available at
that price.
When the sales aisle was
opened, I never even tried to
get to the computers as people
started shoving and yelling as
soon as the sales personnel
said that they could come to
get the sale items. I did,
however, quickly get into the
fray when I saw a woman
knocked down and people
stepping on her to get to the
computers.
I tried to yell that there was
a woman on the floor and to
shield her from other
customers' feet. Someone
knocked her glasses off and I
was able to secure them ,so that
they were not broken.
Not a soul paid attention to
what I said. Surely they could
feel and see the woman beneath
their feet.
Fortunately, she said she was


If Christians go to the "real"
birth of'Jesus and' celebrate it,
then all those people who are
fighting; over not having,
"their" symbols displayed, or
the ACLU fighting to
eliminate every thing religious,
would perhaps stop.
No other religion will be
allowed to put up their symbol
on our special day.
It doesn't belong to them, it
belongs to the Christians; See,,
right now, they are telling us
that Dec. 25 does not belong to
Christians, it belongs to those
who worship Santa Clause.
And you know what? They are
right
Separating the t'o times of
the yew,. would also help teach
your child the truth about
Jesus. especially if tou are a
Christian.
See, here is the Christians
problem tas I see it We haxe
put our Lord and Saviors birth
right up there with "pagan"
beliefs.
Does God approve of this?
Does God back us in our
efforts to keep Jesus as our
symbol for this paganism da\
of worship?
Now, if \ou \want to support
Santa Clause and all that goes
\ ith it, I see no problem w ith
that, but just remember this
is not the birth of Jesus. Don't

Dear Editor:

in the presence of three small

We live in Vidalia, Ga. My
son called me and told me, his
situation. I was panicked
because I was so far away with
no way to get to him. We tried
to call his grandfather, who
lives about 20 miles below
Ocala, buit he wasn't in.
My son called some of his
friends' at the college who
could conie and get them, but
that would leave the vehicle
stranded, which we didn't.
I got on the Internet and
looked up churches in the
Starke area (because my son
said he had just come through
Starke).,
I only got one church to
answer, who said they would
try to send someone when
church was over, which would
be between 8 and 8:30. It was
only 7:10.
In desperation, I told my son
to call 911 and see if they)
could send some help. They
said they would send an officer'
from Lawtey.
It was Officer Hernandez.

about this dog's owner
breaking the law?
We are talking about not just
any dog but one of the most
dangerous breeds of a dog, a
bull dog, a dog who is allowed
to roam the streets of Lawtey

This dog and his owner has
broken the law. Why was no

Man charged
with sexual
battery
A 63-year-old Starke man was
arrested last week for sexual
battery on a child under 12..
Lawrence Leon Clessen was
arrested Nov. 21 by Starke
Investigator Kevin Mueller on
charges of sexual activity that
occurred during the past two

University of Florida seeks understanding through collision


By BETH ROMANIK
University of Florida student

About 30 students,
professors and research
scientists from the University
of Florida are participating in
one of the largest group
physics projects in the world.
The Large Hadron Collider
is a particle accelerator and
collider. It is located in
Geneva at CERN.. the principal
European center for research in
particle physics, which was
also the site of the invention of
the World Wide Web.
The Large Hadron Collider
will become the world's
largest, most advanced particle
accelerator. It is scheduled to'


begin operation in 2007. The
collider will accelerate and
collide protons, which no other
collider does, and will provide
the largest energy ever
obtained in a controlled
environment.
Five experiments are
currently being built and will
be running on the collider.
Each of them will study
particle collisions under a
different point of view and
with different technologies.
One of these projects, the
Compact Muon Solenoid
experiment, is a large particle
physics detector being built on
the Large Hadron Collider. It
will be located in an
underground chamber at Cessy
in France, just across the


border from Geneva.
Approximately 2,300 people
from 159 scientific institutes,
including the 30 students and
faculty from UF, form the
collaboration contributing to
the $1 billion experiment. UF
is one of the 10 leading
universities involved around
the world.

The experiment is designed
to study the collisions of
protons performed by 'the
collider. Associate professor
Dr. Andrey Korytov of the UF
physics department likened the
matter inside protons to trash
inside trash cans getting
slammed together.
Since scientists already
know about the main particles


inside protons, these normal
particles are like debris, he
explained.
"Sometimes we get debris,
of course, from- trash cans," he
continued. "But occasionally
we get new particles."
Korytov went on to say that
finding new particles in the so-
called trash is like "looking for
precious diamonds." Attaining
these new particles and
learning about them is one of
the main goals of the Large
Hadron Collider.
One particle of particular
interest is the Higgs boson,
particle. When it is produced,
its lifespan is a fraction of a
second. If it could be studied
more closely, many questions
relating to physics could be


answered, including how
particles obtain mass.
The experiments performed
with the collider have several
other goals as well. Different
areas of study will concentrate
on .answering many other
fundamental scientific
questions.
An especially exciting
aspect is being able to use the
collider to study theories on
the origin of the universe and
what occurred during the "Big
Bang."
"The theory of the universe
is very much related to particle'
physics, because everything
started from producing
particles," explained Dr.
Guenakh Mitselmakher, a
professor of the UF physics


department. "We can make
what they call a mini big langf
when we collide protons in the
accelerator."
The information obtained
from such collisions could help
scientists answer many
unknown aspects of dark
matter and the universe itself.
"For us," Mitselmakher said,
"It's an opportunity to
understand what happened at
the very beginning of the
universe.,
Simcha Korenblit, a senior
at UF who works as a research
assistant in the physics
department, acquired data for
the Compact Muon Solenoid
experiment. The resulting

BHS grad styles his



way "to $10,000


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph taffWriter
It's routine, gto and get a
Haircut and nd't think twice
about it, but could you have
the $10,000 hair style?'
: Datrick' Cohens, a 2001
graduate of Bradford High
School, recently competed and
won The Official Hair Show of
the Season 2005 presented by
International Hair Magazine.
i The competition took.place
on Nov. 20 at John Hancock
Hall in Boston. The different
hair he styled. on several
models won-him the $10,000
priy, including several


trophies and the title .of the
finest stylist of the year.
"Peanut," as 23-year-old
Cohens has been nicknamed,
now lives in Atlanta and
travels, to hair shows
throughout the year. However,
for him, hair styling is not only
a job, it is a family tradition
passed down from his
grandfather.
Cohens works at a hair salon
and is scheduled to compete in
six more hair styling
competitions next year.
He specially thanks his
church family at the Starke
Church of God by Faith, who
have prayed for him along the
way,

research he helped with found
a. more efficient way for the
experiment to function, which
reduced the total cost of
operating the 'Large Hadron,
Collider.
"It was a very valuable
opportunity to me," Korenblit
said. "I think people should
realize this experiment is one
of the most scientifically and
technically ambitious
undertakings the human race
has ever endeavored upon."
Once the collider becomes
operational, the various
experiments it can test will
provide information about
many scientific questions, but
Mitselmakher added that it is
important to be aware of


FESTIVAL
Continued from p. 3B

festival. A "tailgate" party was
held at the Woman's Club at
this year's festival, but it was
not well attended.
"I don't know that doing an
evening event is ever going to
be successful," Canova said.
The party, which began at 6
p.m., was conceived to
coincide with the Florida-LSU
game, which was going to be
shown on a big-screen TV.
However, the game was
moved to earlier in the day,


unexpected discoveries, which
may occur that no one has
even considered.
"We should keep our eyes
open because with the Large
Hadron Collider, we are
entering into uncharted
territory," he said. "If history
is a lesson, usually when we
enter into new territories, we
always find something
.' unexpectedd" -
Kor) tovy lso emphasized the
technological benefit that can
be. obtained from the project,
whether intentionally or by
accident.
"We push technology to the
edge, we advance technology,"
he said. "As a result you have
advances and uses for
everybody."
Mitselmakher agreed.
"When ,you have several
thousand smart people trying
to push technology to the limit,
you get something out of it."


and Canova said not many
people were in the mood to
attend the party after the game
since the Gators lost.
Also, an evening event was
planned .to attract the artists.
However, Lehman said most
of the artists, after a full day of
manning their booths, cannot
be counted on to attend such
an event.
"A lot of the artists just are
not going to come," Lehman
said. "They are just too tired."
What Lehman is interested
in looking at is offering some
type of event that will draw
people from out of the area.
Lehman said people from The
Villages attended this year's


festival after she placed
advertisements in a newspaper
that serves that area.
"It's a concentration of
people who are retired, and
they love to get on buses and
go places," Lehman said.
Other topics of discussion at
Monday's meeting included
possibly moving the children's
area, which has been located
near the public library, next to
the Woman's Club and getting
more elementary school-aged
children to participate in the
parade.
Barber also suggested
making contact with area high
school bands earlier in' hopes

James Rogers is making return to Starke in January


James Rogers, the popular
singing star from Dollywood at
Pigeon Forge, Tenn., will be in
to Starke Saturday, Jan. 21 for
a return concert.
Country music will be the
order of the evening and the
Bradford Ecumenical
Ministries Food Pantry will
benefit from the proceeds of- the
concert.
Tickets Wvill be $10 each for
adults and $5 for students, and
may be purchased at the door,
or advance tickets will be
available.
Rogers is the featured star at
Dollywood, Dolly Parton's
theme park at Pigeon Forge.
On the road in the off season
he presents a show that
contains something for
everyone from eight to 80. He.
is called one of the most
engaging entertainers around
today.
Rogers is a singer,
songwriter and musician -
and much more. He combines
his exceptional talents in a mix
of musical and singing:skills,
down home charm and a
charismatic wit to thoroughly
entertain his audiences. His
down home patter is warm and
very humorous. His shows
contain songs from the 50s and
60s and include country, folk
and ballads, popular music and
new music he has composed
himself.
Rogers said he always
wanted to be a performer,
beginning as a child growing
up in Chattanooga, Tenn.
Music was a common interest
and love in his family.
His strongest musical


influence in those early years
was his Uncle Tom, who
played and sang country music
on local Chattanooga radio
shows. That sparked Rogers'


interest in country music.
Rogers remembers visiting his
grandmother's house and
peeking through the bedroom
door at his uncle's guitar and


desperately wanting to play it.
Roger's first appearance in
the spotlight came when he
was five years old and in the
first grade. He was chosen to


represent his class in a talent
show.
This humble beginning
sparked the flame of musical
creativity. He received his first


guitar at Christmas when he
was 11 years old and the
rest, as they say, is

said.
Adkins said he knew certain
aspects of his father's service,
such as the fact that he fought
in the Battle of the Bulge and'
he received a Bronze Star.
However, Adkins did not,
know what all his father went
through-the harsh conditions,
lack of food and constant
fighting day after day-until
reading the diary.
"Reading his diary was a big
eye-opener for me," Adkins
said.
Adkins-said the thought of
turning his father's diary into a
book came after his father's
death in 1989. Adkins was
rereading the diary when he
noticed how -organized 'it
already was. He began creating
chapters for it with the thought
of letting his own children read
it.
"I thought, why not share
this with others," Adkins said.
Adkins did some research
himself for the book, adding to
things mentioned only in
passing by his father in the
diary. It was a great learning

Starke barrel racer Landry still has what it takes


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Kids know her as the "llama
lady."
Barrel racers know her as
the first woman to top the U.S.
futurity charts three years in a
row.
To people here in Starke,
though, she's just Kim Landry,
daughter of Sonny and Lane
Tenly.
Landry, who owns and runs
Cloverleaf Farm, was never
really interested in horses until
she was in high school. She
got her first quarter horse in
11 grade.
Like many locals, she
experienced riding at the
Bradford County Riding Club.
She learned the ins and duts of
horses, feed and tack while
working at the Gold Key.
Everything else, she learned
from rider Squeak Larkins,
'who helped her get .into
competitive barrel racing. '
With a few bruises, broken
oones and a life threatening
injury later, Landry went from
Florida, where there are few
major horse events, to win a
world championship in futurity
barrel racing.
Futurity racing is where the
horses are four years or
younger in their first year of
competition. The horses are
seasoned for one year. This
differs from rodeo horses,
which are usually more mature
and have been trained longer.
Barrel racing -is when three
barrels are set up in a triangle,
usually more than 60 feet
apart, and a horse and rider
must race around the barrels
and make it back to the start as
fast as possible.


The pattern creates a
cloverleaf shape and is usually
done in around 15 seconds, but
times vary depending on arena
size and ground conditions.
Time penalties are given for
knocking down a barrel.
Through Landry's years as a
futurity barrel racer, she went
to competitions while working
at the Gold Key, but something
had to give for her to compete
full time.
Making the difficult decision
to quit her job at Gold Key in
1993 was what she had to do,
and it paid off in a big way.
Landry went on to win every
major futurity in the United
States, becoming one of the
only women to top the charts
in barrel racing three years in a
row, and she won a world
championship too.
Now, she is the No. 2 10-
year rider with earnings
estimated at $943,780 and has
appeared in every major
magazine about barrel racing
and the horse industry.. ,
"I've done good for the last
10 years," she said, not
wanting to brag about her
talent.
Landry's ascent in the world
of barrel racing was not an
easy one. Beginning with
horses in 1989, she
experienced a horse accident
four years later.
The 1993 year was going
well, Awaiting an upcoming
competition in Oklahoma,
Landry entered a riding show
at the Bradford County Riding
Club.
Landry's horse bucked her
off. What would have been at
best a few bruises and possibly
a broken bone, turned into a
life-threatening accident when
the horse stomped her.


The result was a trip to the
intensive care unit with
massive blood loss, a broken
leg, and a liver and some other
body parts that were basically
split in two.
Landry said the experience
scared her, and she was "too
close to death."
Most people thought she
was going to die, but Bradford
County residents gave her
around 15 pints of blood
anyway. Using her tenacity she
had shown in her barrel racing,
Landry pulled through and
now has a rod in her leg.
Putting the accident aside,
Landry said the toughest part
about barrel -racing is all of the
work before the race actually
takes place.
Training and riding horses is
an all-day job, she said.
"You're stuck to this." Landry
wakes up each morning and
goes to her barn to see what
the horses have torn up the
night before.
When not repairing the
damage, she is feeding horses,
cleaning out stalls, and
unloading feed and hay. "It is
never, boring," she said, and
the "unexpected" always
happens.
The majority of the day is
taken up by training horses,
which takes a lot of repetition
to get them familiar with the
pattern of barrel racing.
She described herself as "46
hitting 962 I think I'm 106 at
the end of the day." Not too
long after Landry finally
makes her way to bed, the
morning has begun again and
the whole process starts over,
but it is even harder to wake
up because she's tired or sore
from the day before, she said.
Through it all, she describes


Kim Landry stands next to her barrel racing awards, photos and magazine
articles. On the wall, Landry keeps a photo of herself and a horse named
"Chocalotta," who helped her win her first major championship.


herself as a "very hyper
person," which is evident from
the way she was working and
talking, almost non-stop,
during her whole interview.
When Landry is away from
the farm competing,, her
parents graciously take care of
her animals, including a llama,
goats, two cats, seven dogs,
guinea pigs and 50 horses.
Landry rides for people as
far away as Minnesota and
Canada. Even though in the
Spring she is with her horses in
Oklahoma, she has not toured
as much in the last four years
as she once did.
Her main focus now is
training futurity horses for
people and selling horses. In
the industry, the biggest thrill
Landry gets is training horses,
and then watching them do
well.
Since 1993, she has had 65
winning horses. Landry has the
more promising horses
insured.
SAs if Landry did not have
enough to do, she sells tack
and her own line of saddles.
When asked if she was
going to give up training,
selling and racing horses


anytime soon, she replied, "I.
don't feel like it yet." As long
as Landry can still unload hay

doing,it, she said.
Another aspect of her job
she likes is being able to take
her experiences and pass them
on-to young people who are
making their entrance into the
horse business.
Young people from different
states and here in Bradford
County come to her farm,
which they affectionately call
the "torture camp."
Landry sometimes laughs at
the guys who go to the gym to
workout. She tells them, "If
you come to my gym, I don't
charge."
The kids have to work hard
when they come to Cloverleaf.
She explains this to parents,
before they send their children
to work and ride in the Florida
heat.
"No doubt about it, this is
about work," she -explained.
She advises young riders to'
take time with their horses and
- go to people who know about
-. horses in order to get.help.
The horse business is so
- crooked, she said. "When I tell
them something,. they know
it's the truth."-,
S Landry has helped many
children through the. years
learn ..that -they will be
rewarded for hard work and
showed them if she can come
from a little place like Starke
and succeed, they can too.

Passing the reins
While Kim Landry is- not
totally ready to hand over her
reins yet, she is willing to
share what she knows.
Her experience with barrel
racing. and her own two
children and grandchildren.
give her the skills needed to
take on the challenge of
helping young barrel racers.
Two of these riders are
Taylor Hull and NMary Torode.
Taylor Hull, daughter of
Debbie and Matt Hull, first
rode a horse at her friend Mary
Torode's birthday party when
'she was 9 years old. After the
ride, she was hooked on
horses.
Taylor went on to buy her
first horse in 1998. The
following year she made an
appearance at the National
'Barrel Horse Association
World Show in 1999.
Every year since, she has
competed in this contest. In
2003, Taylor placed second in
barrel racing.
Now 16-year-old Taylor is
Home schooled so she can
devote 'more time to learning
about and competing in open
Barrel races.
2 Like Landry, she is riding
horsess from early in the
?-morning until about 7 p.m.
;"Everything I learned is from
SKim." she said.
Taylor hopes to be barrel
I racing for a long. time because
-.she enjoys it. Even though
competing takes up a lot of her
weekends and time with
Friends, she said, "I love it so
much I can't give it up."
Mary Torode, 15, basically
feels the same way. She is
often at competitions and finds
it difficult sometimes to make
up her. work from school, but,.
she has been around horses so
long that she would not want
"to give them up.
Mary, daughter of Johnny
.and Tracy Torode, grew up
I*around horses because her
family always had' them and
Z-her sister, Megan, did barrel
racing as well.
S Mary's mom went toschool
,with Landry's sister, so the

of 14. She has also been ID

ID Reserve Dixie's National

Five belt buckles, two
saddles and about $16,000
have all been won by Mary in
the last year.
From Oct. 30 to Nov. 5, she
competed in the 2005 National
Barrel Horse Association
Youth World Championship
for teens. She placed fourth out
of 300 to 400 competitors. Her
winning barrel race time was
14.948 seconds on a her
sister's horse named "Flitin'
Bug."

Mary. and Taylor have
literally gotten off to a. quick
start with barrel racing. If
Landry is any indicator what a
rider from Bradford County
can do, look forward to seeing.
both of these small town girls
make a big impact on the sport
of barrel racing.

He won the 1983 National

Dollywood's forerunner, Silver
Dollar City and WIVK in
Knoxville.
Rogers received a perfect


score in that contest and was
selected for top honors from
more than 2,000 entrants.
He' then became a regular
performer at the entertainment
park and is the best-known and
most-loved entertainer at
Dollywood.
Rogers has had a long list of
musical accomplishments since
he first started his career in
1972. He appeared on the
Grand Ole Opry with country
legends like Hank Snow, Bill
Anderson and Bill Monroe. He
has worked with well known
entertainers like Alabama, Suzy
Bogguss, Roy Clark, Steve
Martin, Dolly Parton and
Ricky Skaggs.
The concert here will benefit
the Food Pantry which was
begun in 1989 and has helped
many local families through
hard times. There is no public
money for this purpose, the
only source of funds is
donations from churches,
businesses, individuals, an
annual "Walk for Hunger," and
this concert coming again in
January.

we are free not to do.

Honorable mention.
That was all Chris
Thompson's junior season at
the University of Southern
Indiana netted him when it
came to selecting the Great
Lakes Valley All-Conference
basketball teams. The 2001
Bradford High School
graduate told the Evansville
Courier and Press he felt that
was a "sign. of disrespect".and
he planned to use it as a source
of motivation for this season'.
It has proven to be good
motivation as Thompson has
averaged 22.5 points and 10.7
rebounds per game through the
Screaming Eagles' first six
games this.season.
Thompson, a senior, is
leading his team in both
scoring and rebounding and is
one of the team's leaders in
shooting percentage. ,He has


made 76 percent of his field-
goal attempts (56-of-74) and
has also made 67 percent (4-
of-6) of his 3-point attempts
and 76 percent (19-of-25) of
his free-throw attempts.
The Screaming Eagles
started the season by winning
Disney's Division II Tip-Off
Classic Nov. 11-13. Thompson
was named the tournament's
Most Outstanding Player. He
scored a career-high 35 -points
and grabbed 11 rebounds in his
team's opening 88-71 win over
Caldwell College. Thompson
followed that up with 15 points
and 12 rebounds in a 76-71
win over Nebraska Omaha and
18 points and 14 rebounds in
90-86 win over Columbus
State for the championship.
Southern Indiana improved
to 6-0 after defeating Central
State 94-68 on Nov. 26.
Thompson had 18 points and
12 rebounds in the win.'
During his junior season,
Thompson scored 362 points


Chris Thompson


for an 11.3-per-game average
and had 293 rebounds for a
9.2-per-game average. His
rebound total led the team and
was third best in the Great
Lakes Valley Conference.


Southern Indiana head coach,
Rick Herdes also believed
Thompson's achievements that
season should have garnered,
him more than honorable
mention in the conference.
"If there are better players inm
this league, I'd like to know:
where they're at," Herdes was:
quoted as saying in the Courier:
and Press. "If there are better;
players in the country, I'd like"
to know where they're at."
Thompson, who is Bradford!
High School's all-time scoring:
leader with 1,550 points, began:
his collegiate career at Pasco-:
Hernando Community:
College. He averaged 19.8K
points and 9.7 rebounds per
game as a freshman and 22;
points and 11 rebounds per:
game as a sophomore.:
Thompson also. set career:
records in scoring (1,248
points) and rebounding (654)
at Pasco-Hernando.

boys play

to third tie
S The Keystone Heights boys'
soccer team jumped out to a 2-
0 lead, but had to settle for its
third tie of the season, 2-2,
against Class 4A St. Augustine
on Nov. 22.
-Both teams had scoring
.opportunities early which were
nullified by offsides calls. The
Indians struck in the 21"
minute when Brad Gober sent
-across from the right side to a
diving Dustin Hayre, who
headed the ball into the open
net.
Four minutes later, Brad

with an assist from Austin
Bennett, past the charging goal
for a 2-0 lead.
Hayre, the Indians'. senior
center midfielder, went down
in the second half with .an
ankle injury. Head coach

the middle of the field, but
Michael McLeod, making his
first start at goalie this season,
made several saves.
McLeod recorded 14 saves.
St. Augustine converted on a
penalty kick in the 54th minute
to cut the Indians' lead to one,
then tied the match on Matt
Brian's shot from 40 yards out.
The Indians still ,had a
chance for the win when Drew
Wingate, taking a pass from
Gober, slammed a shot toward
the goal in the final minute,
but St. Augustine's goalie
made the save.
Waters, whose young team
is 1-1-3, said the Indians are
improving with each match.
"L am confident they will
turn these ties into wins after
the Thanksgiving break,"
Waters said.
SKeystone was scheduled to
play Newberry on Nov. 28 and
