Hundreds turn out for LB Christmas parade

Citizens from all over Union third-place winners in each form of several local
County and the surrounin category. businesses, the city council and
County and the surrounding In the commercial categorvy, it,. lo, ees The iveawav


area came out to see what is
quickly becoming the parade
of the year.
The city of Lake Butler held
its annual Christmas parade
Friday night. More than 55
units graced the streets of
downtown Lake Butler, many
illuminated by Christmas'
lights. City Manager Richard
Tillis said he thinks it's the
biggest turnout for the event
ever.
"Well it's the largest since
I've been city manger,
anyway," Tillis said.
Last year's parade had more
than 50 entries, 25 of which
were illuminated with holiday
lights:
"Next year we encourage a
special effort be put forth to
make it the best parade event
ever for the residents of Lake
Butler and Union County,"
said Tillis. "Especially fdr each
and every child in our
community."
The theme for this year's
parade was "Christmas around
the World". Parade entries
were judged on several criteria
including originality, materials
used and how well they follow
the theme. Organizers made
two categories, nonprofit and


first place went to the New
River Solid Waste Association.
This is the second year in a
row they have won the honor.
The Lake Butler Farm Center
took second place. Southern
Professional Title Services Inc.
captured third place.
In the nonprofit category,
the Lake Butler Rotary Club's
entry was honored with first
place. The First Baptist Church
of Lake Butler was second,
and the First Baptist Church of
Raiford was third.
After the parade, many
gathered at the Lake Butler
Community Center pavilion to
meet with Santa. Those 12 and
under received a goody bag
filled with fruit, candy and
other surprises. By the time all
the children had made it
through the line, all 300 bags
that were prepared had been
handed out.
One large surprise was
tickets in the bags of 34 lucky
young people. If a child's
goody bag contained a ticket,
they went to go see Santa to
claim their new bike.
"This year Santa gave away
more bikes at the event than he
ever has," said Tillis. "He had

this year's giveaway. Paolo

also helped by donating to the
cause.
"We are challenging all
businesses in Lake Butler and
throughout Union County to
donate bikes to next year's
event," Tills said. "We hope to
increase next year's total to at
least double this year's.
The giveaway, which has
become a tradition in just the
last several years, has grown
each year. According to Tillis,
the city had just ,over 11 bikes
the first year. That number
increased to 22 last year.
One event that was not
planned was the generosity of
one young lady. When 12-
year-old Taylor McSpadden
got her goody bag, there was a
ticket for a bicycle in it. The

Agricultural students explore media industry


By JAMES REDMOND
Tilhes Staff Writer ..
The students in the
agricultural program at Union
County High School are
learning about more than just
farming.
The agricultural -
communications class helps
students explore the media
industry. Radio and print
media are two of the types of
news outlets covered in the
class. Agriculture teacher and
FFA advisor Charlotte
Emerson guides the students
on their journey.
The class is the first of its
kind in the state. Emerson,
passionate about giving
students more opportunities,
wrote the course standards-for
the program. I
"This is realty a pilot
program for the state,"
Emerson said. "If the program
does well here, the state hopes
to expand it to other schools
across Florida."
The idea for the program
came from Emerson's
experience as a broadcaster.
For the past several years she
and fellow agricultural teacher
and FFA advisor David Harris
have called given listeners the
play-by-play of the Union
County Tigers football team.
"I thought what a great
experience it would be for my
students to be able to do the

same thing," Emerson said.
She did confess that the
program is a bit more
overwhelming than she first
anticipated.
"Even writing the
curriculum did not prepare me
for the amount of teaching that
was involved," Emerson said.
"There are .many aspects of
both types of media the kids
need to learn."

wonderful opportunity for the
students.
"I agreed to help Charlotte
because I know this is a
wonderful opportunity to help
educate our young people in an
area they would not otherwise
be able to," Lewis said."
The class' most well known
aspect is a 15-minute radio
show it produces each school
morning. The show, which airs
on WUCR 107.9, informs
listeners of local events, school

The story is base around the
Herdman family of children
that are absolutely horrible.
They do horrible things and are
the terrors of the public school
they attend. They extend their
reign to Sunday school and
take over the church's
Christmas pageant.

themselves in charge, they
know nothing of the true story

plan to present includes

news as well as national and
entertainment news. The entire
show, from producing to on-air
talent, is the sole responsibility
of the students.
The students take turns each
nine weeks producing the
show. During the second nine-
week grading period of this
year, Kaleb "K.C." Clyatt and
Lillie "Emmie" Emmelhainz
served as anchors for the
program.
"We set up and do the


school portion of the show,"
Clyatt said. "Then we kick it
over to everybody else."
Mallory "Mal the Weather
Gal" Rogers informs listeners
about the weather and
community news. Sarah
"Sarah with Sports" Bennett
gives listeners all the latest
sports scores and highlights.
Chelsea "Cheezy" Ricks gives
listeners the quote of the day
and does other special features.
Ashlyn "Ash" Woodington
informs listeners of the day's
national and entertainment
news.
The group agreed that it was
not very difficult to fill the 15-
minute time slot.
"It's more difficult to cut the
stuff down," Woodington said.
"We have so much information
for our listeners, we have to
decide what's really important.
and what can'wait."
One important aspect of the
program is school news.
"The school prints out a
sheet of daily announcements
for us," Emmelhainz said. "It
is a tremendous help to us"
Emmerson said she feels that
the information reaches a
broader base of people over the
airwaves.
"Announcements printed out
and given to students normally
get left in a backpack and
never given to parents,"

Emmerson said. "This gives
them another opportunity to
find out what's going on at the
school."
Bennett, Rogers and
Woodington get their
information from print media.
"I look in the newspaper
every morning to get the latest
scores," said Bennett.
.Preparation for the program
begins the minute the students
walk into class. Each member
of the broadcast team begins
gathering information for that
day's broadcast. Once
gathering is complete, a
schedule is played out of when
each personality will be on the
air.
Though the group broadcasts
mainly from the high school,
in the past several months the
show has been on location
throughout Lake Butler.
During its most recent outing,
the group broadcast the sights
and sounds of the Veterans'
Day parade to listeners. Sitting
in the middle of S.R. 121, the
crew interviewed guests and
described the parade units in
great detail. Other events
include pep rallys and this
year's modified Tiger Growl.
Though the equipment for
the program was an expensive
proposition, Emerson found
funding from a source that did
not cost the school system any
money. Each year, the Radio
and Television News Directors
Foundation awards high school
journalism programs all across
the country :grants to help
enhance :learning. The
agricultural communications
class received $5,000 to help
buy equipment for the class.
This is the maximum amount
the foundation awards.
The, largest portion of the
proceeds bought the
broadcasting equipment that
allows the students to be on
WUCR each morning. Other
equipment bought with the
grant includes a digital voice
recorder, digital camera and a
printer.
In the future, Emerson and
Lewis hope to be able .to
expand the scope of the
program.
"We are looking toward
students being disc jockeys
and- program, directors in the
near future," Lewis said. "Who
knows, the next great radio
personality could come from
Union County."

City hall dedication

th Friday


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer

This Friday, Dec. 16, the
city of Lake Butler will
complete its new city hall
project with a dedication of the
building.
After months of putting the
final touches on the building,
city officials will give the
puel.: a chance to see how
there tax dollars were spent.
The event will include an open
house that is scheduled to
begin at 1 p.m. Everyone is
invited.
At 3 p.m., council members
will -hold a dedication
ceremony to officially dedicate
the site. The rest of the event
will be set aside to allow
citizens to come in and browse
the building at their leisure.
Refreshments will be served
throughout the afternoon.
City Manager Richard Tillis
said the city has been working
hard to reach this point.
"We wanted to wait until the
building was 100 percent
complete," Tillis said. "It has
taken many months to put the
last pieces in place."
City employees moved into
the building back in June. The
sale of the old building forced
them to do so, before the final
touches where completed.


Even so, Tillis said the moving
into an uncompleted building
was not a problem.
"The things that were not
completed had nothing to do
with employees' daily duties,"
Tillis said. "Things like the
flag pole and water fountain
needed to put in place to
complete the project."
Tbh- r,-,j.;ct cost the city
more than $300,000 to
complete. According to Tillis
though, it could have cost
much more than that.
"We were able to complete
many of the, aspects of the
building on our own," Tillis.
said. "If not for that, it would
have cost almost double what
it was."
Much of the labor for the
project was performed by
either city employees or
inmate work crews. By having
workers already in place that
the city did not have to pay
extra for, Tillis estimates the
city saved more than $140,000
in labor alone.
The next project on the
city's list is the construction of
a new fire station.
"But it will be several
months before we began
looking at that," Tillis said.

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 over. Never leave a
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.

AIltel's petition rejected by PSC


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer


.A petition by Alltel Florida
Inc. to raise rates for monthly
local service rates was rejected
by the three-member panel of
the Florida Public Service
Commission on Dec. 12.
In a unanimous decision, the
commission determined there
was insufficient evidence, in
the record to support the
company's request. The
decision means customers of
Alltel will see no change in
'basic monthly'service rates.
,"Sg(ffWas ~not persuaded the
company's petition met the
legal requirements established
by the Legislature when it
passed rebalancing legislation
and we agreed with that
assessment," said Commission
Chairman Rudolph "Rudy"
Bradley.
As part of the Tele-
_-Competition-Innevation and -
Infrastructure Enhancement
/ Act of 2003,
telecommunications providers
must prove that removing price
supports and exchanging them
for an increase in basic local
rates will benefit consumers.
The act states that these
changes should open up the
market to more competitive
providers. This would increase
the number of service offerings
and reduce long distance rates.
"The commission found
none of these benefits were
L likely to occur by granting
Alltel's petition," Bradley said.
According to Alltel's
petition, the company's rates
for basic services are at levels
well below the costs of those
services. This was to assure
services were universally
S available to all customers.
The exact opposite is true for
M the company's toll and access
\ services. These feature's rates
were established well above
their costs to help support
basic services rates to help the
company recoup loses for
underpriced local service.


Alltel's petition stated that
while these supports were
sustainable in. a monopoly
market where only Alltel
provided -basic services,
maintaining the supports at
historic levels was no longer
feasible or desirable.


Jefferson's library of.
approximately 6,000
books became the
basis of the Library of
Congress. His books
were purchased from
him for $23,950.


In its response to Alltel, the
commission stated that it did
not feel the company's plan
would benefit local phone
service customers. According
to the decision, the panel did
not find enough evidence to
support the finding that
approval of Alltel's petition
would generate material
customer benefits in the form
of a wider choice of providers.
While the commission did
acknowledge the company's
commitment to spend an
additional $15,000-20,000
annually during the
rebalancing period to promote
Lifeline assistance to low-
income consumers, it did not
negate the concern that
approval would generate an
overall benefit for customers.
The panel did acknowledge
that the current pricing
structure did hinder other
competitors from corning into
the market. The panels
findings conclude that below
average pricing by Alltel may
constitute an impediment for
certain types of competitors.
The panel's response state's
that wireless and Voice Over
Internet Protoco!'providers are
unaffected by the current
structure and would find only
small benefits from this
change. It did not state the
affects on otiherproviders.
The panel also found that the
companies Alltel identified in
its petition as being potential
competitors would not be
affected by higher rates. plltel
contented that by raising rates,
profit margins would increase
and make the market more
attractive for other providers.
The panel disagreed with the
findings. According to the
commission, providers
identified by Alltel as the
primary beneficiaries of
rebalancing are wireless
providers. These providers
underlying cost are not directly
affected by basic local service
rates and toll and access rates.
The finding concluded that
Alltel had failed to establish
that competitors would enter
the market as a result of the
changes.
One other condition Alltel

became the first
successful solo nonstop
trans-Atlantic flight.


would have had to meet was
the reduction of intrastate
switched network access rates
to interstate parity over a
period of not less than two
years or more than four years.
The panel's report states that it
felt the company would have
failed to complete this under
its proposal.
As defined by Florida
Statute 364.164, if a company
has one million or fewer access
lines in service, the term parity
means that the company's
intrastate switched network
access rate is equal to 8 cents
per minute.
Currently, Alltel's intrastate
rate is $0.1132294. In its
proposal, the company planned
to reduce that rate to
$0.0978447 by April 2006.
One year from that date, the
rate would drop to
$0.0790820. One year later it
would drop to $0.0606194.
The panel's contention was
that since the rate will drop
below 8 cents per minute
before the two-year period is
up, the plan did not meet
statutory requirements.
On the issue of the company
having to be revenue neutral in-
the switch, the panel did agree
that Alltel's. plan would have
met the requirement.
Representatives from Alltel
were contacted for comment
on the petition, but had not
returned phone calls as of press
time.

Flying Tiger Airport holds annual Christmas party


Spirits, as well as everything
else, flew sky high as th(
Flying Tiger Airport ir
Worthington Springs held its
annual Christmas party and
Fly- In on Dec. 3.
What has quickly become
the party of the year not tc
miss, was hosted by the Rimes
family of Worthington
Springs. This year's event was
.d in the new two-st ..,lass
clubhouse that was completed
just days before the event. The
structure has an observation
deck on each side of it.
Affectionately known as
"Crystal Palace," the building
allows occupants a 360-degree
view of the airport.
This year's event entertained
more than 1,200 visitors. More
than 150 aircraft, including
airplanes, helicopters and
balloonists, made their way to
Worthington Springs to be a
part of the event.
Of particular interest to
spectators were the many
emergency personnel that were
on hand for the event. Shands
trauma helicopters from
Gainesville, Lake City and
Jacksonville gave spectators a
close look at how they might
get to the hospital in an
extreme emergency. The
United States Coast Guard,
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office, Gainesville Police
Department and Florida
Wildlife Commission also had
helicopters on hand. A
contingent from the
Worthington Springs
Volunteer Fire Department
was on hand as well.
A buffet consisting of
smoked chicken, Boston butts,
oysters on the half shell and
side dishes were served at
noon. The center of attention
for lunch was a whole-smoked
hog served Hawaiian Luau
style. The hog was complete
with an apple in its mouth and
whole pineapples and other
tropical fruit as garnish.
Just as the blessing for the
meal was complete, the guests'


9 attention was drawn skyward
e by more than two dozen
n skydivers descending upon the
s event. Decorated with colored
smoke and brightly colored
parachutes, they all landed
within a few feet of their
target. As the parachutists
landed, the crowd roared with
approval.
Another activity urmng the
9 celebration was an aerial
I demonstration from many of
the helicopter crews. With
I lights and siren blaring, All
three Shands helicopters made
their presence known. The
crew from the USCG made a
precision low-pass manuvuer
for all to see.
Along with the emergency
personnel demonstrations, one
private individual did a high-
speed manuvuer. The
enthusiast did several low
passes across the runway that
were at speeds of more than
290 mph. It was the pilot's
way of showing his
appreciation for emergency
personnel.
Another part of the
entertainment was a Florida
panther. The animal's handlers
answered many questions
about the endangered animal.
The big cat drew quite a bit of
attention as guests entered the
new pavilion.
The party's host had a
special section for all the
children present. Along with a
bounce house, the Rimes,
along with help the FWC
helicopter crew, had a candy
drop. More than 100 children
rushed into the field after the
crew dropped the candy.
The day's activities
concluded with a large bonfire.
Those around the fire were
treated to steamed oysters and
s'mores.
The Rimes family expressed
theirtincere appreciation to all
those who took part in this
year's event. The family is
looking forward to next year's
event, which will include hot
air balloons as well as a visit
by the Goodyear blimp.


Airplanes lined both runaways of the airport for the event. More than 150 aircraft
made their way to Worthington Springs for the event. Also pictured are trucks from
the Worthington Springs Volunteer Fire Department.


Guests stand In line to
taste some of the many
items the party had to
offer. Over 1,200 people
attended the daylong
celebration.


Parachutists watch as another jumper lands. More than
two dozen aerial aerobatics were on hand for the party.

Everything is on track for
the construction of the fifth
disposal cell at the New River
Regional Landfill, according to
Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal.
Comments from the
submission of the first
construction permit application
were received and the
technical responses sought by
the Department of
Environmental Protection have
been sent back, O'Neal said.
DEP has another month or so
to follow up with additional
questions, but O'Neal was
confident that -DEP has been
satisfied.
"Things are going amazingly
well right now," O'Neal said.
The liner material has been
purchased and delivered, and
Construction of the '20-acre
disposal cell will begin as soon
as the permit is granted.
Grubbing and site clearing will
take place. in the meantime.
If construction begins in
February, the landfill should
be ready to install the liner by
later March or early 'April,


O'Neal said.
The new cell will help
accommodate the increasing
amount of waste .taken to the
landfill. O'Neal said disposal
from Alachua County
increased over the last month
and now averages around 750
tons per day. Alachua delivers
the most waste to the landfill
and its contract brings in the
most revenue to the landfill's
$7.3 million budget.:
Landfill now
monitoring air
quality
Frank Darabi, the landfill's
engineer, has submitted the
cost estimates associated with
the first* year of ongoing
assistance with air quality
sampling and analysis. The
volume of waste disposed bf in
the landfill has grown to the
point where New River must
now comply with the Title V
air quality requirements that
each state had to establish for
sources of air pollution as part
of the Clean Air Act.
It was Darabi and his firm
that worked on the landfill's
Title V permit application. The
permit specifies emission
limits and the emission testing


and monitoring requirements
applicable at New River.
These requirements are the
primary means for
demonstrating compliance
with the emission limits,
according to DEP's Web site.
Darabi estimates the first
year's cost at $78,290, which
primarily represents the labor
costs involved as he and five
staff members review the air
quality data collected by the
landfill and University of
Florida, keep records of those
analyses, prepare the required
annual report and offer
operational assistance in the
field.
After discussion about
seeking quotes from other
engineers, Darabi's proposal
was accepted 4-2, with
Bradfot-d. County
Commissioner Eddie Lewis
and Baker County
Commissioner Mark Hartley
dissenting.

Starke man on road to recovery after 3-story fall


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff.Writer
Christopher Holder.of Starke
has a long road ahead of him
as he journeys toward recovery
from a 46-foot fall at his job,


site in St. Augustine Dec. 5.
Holder is a steel worker who
was on the roof of the
Anastasia Baptist Church in St.
Augustine when something
caused him to fall from the
three-story building and land
on a concrete oad.


According to close friends,
Holder's back is broken, as are
both of his legs. His left arm
suffered a large number of
fractures, to the point that
some of the bone is actually
missing. He was lifeflighted
from. the accident site to


Jacksonville.
Deborah Luke, mother of
Christina Luke, Holder's
fiancee, reported Monday that
Holder has been moved from
the Trauma Unit of Shands
Jacksonville to Brooks Rehab
Hospital in Jacksonville.


"They say he won't be
paralyzed," said Luke "We're
thankful for that, but they also
say it will be close to a year
before he is able to get up and
move around on his own."
Holder had six surgeries
within six days, beginning


shortly after the accident.
Metal pins and places were
installed to hold his broken
bones together. He is currently
having to remain immobile
from the neck down while the

healing process begins, said
Luke.
He will be confined to a bed
or wheelchair for at least nine
months and will be severely
limited for at least a year: His
chances of eventually
recovering his mobility are
good, however, said Luke.
The number of pins and
plates that have been installed
prompted family members to
try a little levity in an effort to
cheer Holder up.
"We've been calling him the
bionic man to try to get him to
laugh," said Luke. "He didn't
think it was funny, though. He
just wants to go home."
Holder normally has a very
positive outlook on life. "He's
always telling us we stress too
much," said Luke.
Worker's Comp will pay the
medical bills and pay a portion.
of Holder's salary while he
recovers, but expenses that are
not covered are already
mounting. An account has
been opened at Mercantile
Bank by co-workers, friends
and concerned neighbors.
(Refer to the. account titled
"Donation Account
Christopher Holder" in order
to make donations.) For more
information, call Luke at (904)
782-1023.
Luke and her husband Joey
have built a porch and'
wheelchair ramp at Holder's
home-in anticipation of the day
he comes home from Brooks
Rehab.
"We built the porch because
She loves it outside. We figured
if he can't get around to go do
things. he can at least get out
-on the porch and be outside,"
said Luke.
The home is at the end of
long dirt drive that needs
repair, said Luke. The family
is hopeful that they can find a
way to get the drive smoothed
out before the time Holder is
being transported up and down
it to medical appointments. etc.
Christina Luke has been
spending ever. da at the
hospital with her fiance. "Their
whole life has been disrupted."
said Luke. "'We just got her to
the point %where she will come
home at night. She was
sleeping at the hospital in
whatever spot she could find.".

recovery.

serve St. Augustine Baptist

Holder and the faniil', said
Luke. "We especially need
prayers for healing." said
Luke.
Luke said Holder told them
he had time to realize he was
falling and to realize he was
headed for a portion of
concrete that had rebar sticking
up out of it.
"He said he flipped himself
around in the air so that he was
headed for a different patch of
concrete, without the rebar,"
said Luke.
He also told Luke he tried to
twist around so that his head
did not hit the pavement. "He
said he knew if his head hit the
cement, he would die," Luke
said. Holder was successful in
avoiding head injuries.
"His injuries are horrible,
but bones will heal. He is
alive. He is very, very lucky,"
said Luke.

$50,000 salary available in

Bradford County


Am I kidding? No. Does it require a
college degree? No. Do you have to
live in Bradford County? No. There
must be a catch somewhere? No
catch, but there are some basic
requirements as one would expect in a
job that pays $1,000 per week.
Start with age. A candidate must be
21 years old with a high school
diploma. The applicant's high school
grades must rank him or her in the
upper percentile of the class.-
Attendance and grades make a
difference
after high
school days
are over
and one
meets the
real world
face to face
for the first
time.
Neatness f
counts;s
fashionable
sloppiness
won't get a
candidate
in the door.
The use of drugs and alcohol on a.
resume, or continiuedrun-ins with the
aw,, will eliminate the first interview,
but if an applicant gets past the basic
requirements, he or she can be on the
way to making a better-than-average
income.
Quit stalling and tell you about the
job? OK. The job is long-distance, or
over-the-road truck driving and jobs
are waiting for qualified drivers. A
person qualifies by taking driving,
"lessons at the Bradford-Uhion \'-
Tech or any one of several private
driving schools. Some of the larger
trucking companies operate schools
and train their own drivers. Begin
training now and by this time next
year, you can be earning a good
salary.
There are a wide variety of jobs
available in the industry, some of
which allow the driver to be home at'
various intervals, depending on what


His Spirit;


the driver wants. Some drivers may.
travel throughout the United States
and return home two or three times a
year. Some drivers are allowed to
have their spouse accompany them,
and some firms have husband-wife
driving teams with both on the
payroll. Working conditions are quite
flexible.
Tom Miller, safety director for
Davis Express Inc. of Starke and a
1976 graduate of Bradford High
School, began driving a rig for Davis
Ssix years
ago and has
moved up
in the firm
to an
executive
position,
but he still
takes a rtun
in a big rig
on occasion
"just' 'to
keep his
hand in,"
but not a's
often as he
-would like.
Speaking before the. Starke Rotary
Club recently, Miller said it will take
10 years or more for the supply of
drivers to catch up with the demand.
He said there is a large pool of drivers
in the area and rnany of them move
from one employer to another for any
number of reasons. The several
trucking firms in the area employ
hundreds of drivers and constantly
advertise for additional drivers,
offering bonuses for signing on~..
'Wi1ld'-be drivers can. understand
the necessity for competent and
dependable drivers when they
consider the owners are trusting them
with trucks that cost $95,000 and
trailers 'that cost $50,000 plus the
value of the cargo. -
Opportunity awaits those'who are
prepared, and preparation must begin
early in life. You, too, can be a
winner.

Bible; Candidates have been in the
;ay that community soliciting our votes
)n Dec. and making promises.
On Dec. 2,' a Meet the
cturers' Candidates was held at Tatum
season, Park. Each candidate had the
always opportunity to, address the
savior public. Afterwards the
u don't candidates made themselves
is the available for informal questions
ed suit from those present..
he way I approached the candidate
__- ... seeking to unseat the city clerk
ers that and did I receive the shock of
icturers my life.
world. When asked why he was
you to seeking the position, he
shipping mentioned treating all citizens
service fairly and equally and
get in welcoming all citizens in city
can't hall.
i'me of I asked him what were his
qualifications and education.
o teach His response began with
iip him what he "used" to. do in the
children Navy, he is now retired. I asked
their what he did on a daily basis;
d Santa again he stated "he was retired
from the Navy."
u have I further asked what had he
o these done in the last five years to
believe make him qualified for the job;
r a fact his response was he ran a
have summer camp a couple of
hing to summers ago. He is on the
Jesus Lawtey Recreation Board.
.r their Our current clerk has four
,r the years on the job training, not
and not to mention prior cash handling
experience and customer service
w after experience with above average
t after interpersonal skills. She
,ad the worked daily with the public at
'led by Eckerd/CVS pharmacy. Her


daily responsibilities included
working on the computer and
customer service in person or
by phone.
The shocker was when his
Chauvinistic views reared their
ugly head. It seems this
candidate has a problem with
"women and children" in the
workplace. He did not say, our
current clerk failed to conduct
business, failed to immediately
address the concerns of the
citizens or was habitually
absent from her duties. No, he
has a problem with her child in
the office. He never commented
on overall job performance. *
I work for a Fortune 500
Corporation and my colleagues
would love the informal
atmosphere that exists at city
hall. I could not believe the
prejudicial attitude he would
so blatantly display to the
citizens.
What other prejudicial
opinions does he possess?
Religion? Race? Color? Sex?
Age? National origin? Physical
or Mental disability? Veteran
status?
After listening to his bigoted
spill, I expressed my
displeasure. I also told this
candidate I would not in good
conscience condone his
inequitable opinions. As a
registered voter and US citizen,
I can vote for whomever I like.
On Monday Dec. 5, he
complained that my presence
on the canvassing board would
give an unfair advantage to the
Incumbent. Terry Vaughn,
elections supervisor, replaced
me
What, does this speak of his
opinion about the other two
members, John Morris and
Marvin Rosier? Did he -not
trust them either or is it he just
does not like women?,
Lastly, it is my sincere hope
the incumbent is victorious on
Dec. 6, and the citizens of
Lawtey aren't saddled with
antiquated views for the next

McRae area
needs full-
time fire
department
Few people in this area even
know about the little
community called McRae, just
outside of Keystone Heights. It
doesn't have; a post office, a
gas station,. or even a traffic
light, but what it does have is
one of the best elementary
schools in the district, several
churches, and thousands of
residents. In the years that I
have lived here, I have had two
emergencies that required
fire/rescue personnel to come to
my home.
In the first emergency, my
Wife was having stroke like
symptoms and needed an.
ambulance badly.
I called 911 and waited. It
took 39 minutes for the
ambulance to arrive. In that
time, she could have died.
The ambulance had to come
all the way from Keystone
Heights, since our own fire
department, two blocks from
our .home, isn't manned full
time.
In the next emergency, years
later, I was about to leave my
house when I smelled gasoline
fumes coming from my car. I
jumped out and .opened the
hood (big mistake) when the
flames erupted into a ball of
fire I could not put out with
the water hose. I called 911
again. This time it took 30
minutes for, again, the

Bradford High School is
under a tornado watch, and it
happens every Friday.
WBHS "Tornado Watch"
news is played on the
televisions at BHS during first
period every Friday.
The 20 students in the video
production class are
responsible for all aspects of
the newscast. They write
scripts, edit video, interview
people, produce video
segments and brainstorm new
ideas.
Tornado Watch is made up
of different segments,
including news, sports and
specials. Due to the five-
minute time limit for the
newscast, every segment
cannot air every Friday.
This is where the students
learn about news judgment.
They have to know what is
important to run each week
and what has to be cut out.
The news includes a
segment called "60 Seconds"
as well. It is an entertaining
and informative spot about
special projects that teachers
are doing in their classrooms.
"60 Seconds" helps teachers
and students become
acquainted with interesting
projects going on in their
school.
Lorna Reddish, who
volunteers, her time to teach
the class, said, "These kids
have talked about big issues to
small issues."
"Where's Kia?" a video
about issues ranging from hall
passes to. sexual harassment,
was presented during a school
assembly.
Like any news program, the
WBHS news produces
specials. "Hick Town," was a
humorous special about the
opening of the Wal-Mart
Supercenter.
Specials allow students to
inform BHS about events
happening in Bradford County.
The students have fun alqng
the way, but the video
production class is not just fun

emergency.
I've questioned several
people,. who wish to be
unnamed, about this and I'm
told the same story over and
over.

It's about money.
Clay County says they need
, a living and sleeping facility at
the McRae Fire Department as
well as funding to make it a
full-time fire and rescue
department.
Since there are thousands of
homes in this area, which pay
taxes and are affected by the
lack of a fire department here,
where is all this money going?
The average home in this
area pays $600 a year in
property taxes, which equates
to somewhere near $2.4 million
per year.
If people's safety is no more
important than that, then why
do we live here? I've been to
the fire department in Keystone
Heights and I've asked for help
and guidance on this subject
but I'm told Clay County.just
doesn't listen.
The firemen I have talked to
just shake.their head and tell
me to write letters, go to
county meetings, etc.
There is no reason why the
McRae Fire Department cannot.
be manned full time. They have
equipment and a radio system.
The water is there and the
phone works. All they need is
some sort of sleeping quarters.
If someone has a decent
mobile home that could be
converted to sleeping quarters
that they would be willing to
donate, call me or email me.
I'll come and take pictures of
it and even try to find someone
to move it. Then I'll write a
proposal to Clay County and
submit it 'through the proper
channels for approval.
The old saying goes, "the
squeaky wheel get the most
grease." Well, I'm the
squeakiest of wheels when it
comes to something I.believe
in.
I love this area, I love the
people here, I love the lakes,
the wildlife, and the homey feel
of McRae.

r


students, who before the class
described themselves as
"technically retarded," now
find themselves speaking in
technical jargon.
Because the class is only
offered one period a day, the
students in the class spend
countless hours working on the
news and special video
projects on their own time.
Outside of school time, they
film sporting events, academic
events, homecoming and
special meetings. Besides
doing the school news every
week, the class is currently
.working on a senior video that
will be for sale at the end. of
the year. .
From the time .the news airs
on Friday until the last minute
of class on Thursday, the
students work diligently at
creating a news show both
students and teachers will
enjoy.
Shane Parmenter, a 10'-
grader in the class, said,
"Every one works at their own
thing, and then it comes
together."
Even then, the work does
not stop. After the news, the
class critiques the news and
comes up with new ideas for
the next week.
* The news, i&;enogghitp take
up their time'every week, but-
the students are always'
dedicated to working on the
next project, said Reddish. The
class has partnered with Santa


Priscilla Padgett checks the video equipment
to see what she will need for a video segment
she will be working on for the next newscast.

Earlier sales of the

the class to purchase a DVD
duplicator, which produces
more DVDs in a shorter time.
The rest of the class is
supported because it is such a

students a teleprompter, so
their video production

With the unique video

Starke SFCC students to participate in televised course


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer


The students who sign upTor--
managerial accounting at Santa
Fe Community College
(SFCC) Andrews Center in-
Starke will have to get used to
being on television every
week.
The class is being taught via
Interlink, meaning the
instructor stands in a
classroom in one city while
students sit in a classroom in
another city. Students hear
lectures transmitted by video
and the teacher listens to
student questions transmitted
the same way.
What makes this different
from online classes, is that the
questions and answers are.
transmitted in real time. With
online classes, questions are
often asked by e-mail and if
the instructor does not happen
to be at his or her computer at-
the time, the answer may not
come for several hours or even
for a day or two.
Of course, with an Interlink
class, the student has to be
present in the classroom at the
time the course is being taught.
SFCC has provided a
number of Interlink classes in
'the past. Starke students have
'been able to sit in an Andrews
Center classroom and
participate in a class being
held in Gainesville.
What makes this course
unique is that the teacher will
be standing in the classroom at
the Andrews Center and the
class will be transmitted back
to Gainesville, not the other
way around. Instructor Daneen


Adams said she believes this is
the first time a class has been
transmitted via Interlink from
.the Andrews Center back to
-the main campus.
She will teach the
managerial accounting course


at the Andrews Center. "I've She'll just have to get used to students in person and get to Center. The class begins Jan. 9

UC boys win neighborhood battle against Bradford
... u ., 11 miller Youn 3-


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Justin Griffin helped spark a
12-4 run as the Union County
boys basketball team defeated
Bradford 83-73 on Dec. 9 in
Lake Butler.
The game provided nothing
more than bragging rights, as
neither team plays in the same
district or classification, but
there was a playoff-type
atmosphere as the gym was
packed and the crowd was
Constantly abuzz. Bradford (2-
3) held the lead only three
times, but the Tigers (1-1)
Could never completely pull
away as the score was close
throughout.
Bradford's Kyle Wilson had
a 3-point attempt that just
missed dropping through
before the third quarter came
to a close, but Wilson opened
the fourth quarter with a
driving layup to pull the
Tornadoes within 61-59,.
The Tigers' Zel Highland.
who led all scorers with 27
points, had two baskets to help
keep his team ahead, but
Bradford's Antwan Brown
pulled the Tornadoes back to
within two with a 3-pointer.
That's when Griffin took
charge.
C.J. Spiller came up with a
steal for the Tigers, which led
to a basket by Griffin. Griffin
followed that up with his own
steal, which he took all the
way to the basket for a layup.
Griffin converted on another
drive to the basket to put the
Tigers up 72-63 with 5:12 to
play.
Wilson scored consecutive
"baskets for Bradford, but
Griffin answered with another
score, followed -by a Spiller
score and subsequent free
throw that put Union up by 10.
A 3-pointer by Wilson
followed, but the Tornadoes
only managed one other
score-a 3-pointer by
Roderick DeSue-during the
last two minutes of the game.
Griffin, who finished the
game with 15 points, and
Highland combined to score 26
of the Tigers' 43 second-half
points.
Highland helped the Tigers
build an eight-point lead in the
first quarter,-scoringsix points
during an .11-4 run. Brendan
Odom had the other five points
as the Tigers built an 18-10
lead.
Ted Young drained one of
his three first-half 3-pointers at
the end of the quarter to put
Union up 21-14.
Bradford .found itself
eventually trailing by nine in
the second quarter before
putting together a 15-4 run.
SThe Tornadoes' Clinton
Cubbedge drove the lane for a
score, then launched a
downcourt pass to Wilson,


SFCC


Continued from p. IC
The course:, is designed for
people who are not accounting
majors. It is aimed at teaching
people who work in the
business world about how to
use account' information to
make financial decisions.
Things like budgeting,
analyzing business costs and
evaluating the financial
situation of a business will be
addressed by coursework.
This course (ACG2071) and
another financial accounting
course (ACG2021) form a
basic accounting background
-6foY people who plan to enterY-
the business world. Adams
said SFCC's goal is to offer
both of these courses each
term.
Since these courses are part
of the basic education needs of
almost any student who plans
to work in business, offering
both each semester would
better meet the needs of the
students.
Hiring an instructor to teach.
both courses at all the SFCC
campuses each semester would
be cost prohibitive' The
Interlink method will make
this possible since one teacher
could teach the course at all
the campuses at the same time.
Adams has been a full-time
instructor at SFCC for four
'years and taught part time at
SFCC for four years prior to
that.' .
She is a licensed CPA
(certified public accountant) in
Florida and Pennsylvania. She
earned her bachelor's degree in
business, administration, and
psychology from the
University of Pittsburgh and
received her master's degree in
taxes from King's College.

Telegraph Staff Writer
It was the first district game
of the year' for the Union
County girls basketball team
and the Tigers came out
victorious, defeating host
Crescent City 53-32 on Dec. 8
to set up an early battle for
first place in District 6-3A
against Keystone Heights on
Dec. 13.
The Tigers (7-2) shut
Crescent City out in the
opening quarter, but only led
19-13 at the half. Head coach
Perry Davis said his team did
not do a good job on the
offensive glass in the first half
with only six rebounds.
"In the second half, Amber
(Franzluebbers), Amika
(Davis), Tiffany (Holmes) and
Nichole (Bryant) did a much
beIter job going 'after the ajl''"
1DaVirsrid- --.- .-
Franzluebbers Tinished the
game with 16 rebounds, while
Holmes had nine, Davis seven
and Bryant seven.
Union, which pushed its lead
to 14 after scoring 19 third-
quarter points, was led in
scoring by Franzluebbers, who


had 17 points as well as seven
steals. Davis had 14 points and
six steals, while Holmes added
five assists and two blocks.
Some younger players saw
some action for the Tigers
since Crescent City does not
have a junior varsity team.
"I was real impressed by
freshman Ash'li Watkins and
freshman Terissa Nutt," Davis
said.
The Tigers hosted Keystone
this past Tuesday. Keystone
entered the game with a 3-0
district mark.
Union has two more games
before the Christmas brpak.

"I commend our businesses
and retailers for making sure
that their scanning equipment
accurately reflects the actual
price of the merchandise they're
selling to such a high degree,"
Bronson said.
Only four of the 59 stores
tested failed their inspection,
which requires an accuracy rate
of 98 percent. Two stores failed
for excessive overcharges while
two others failed for too many
undercharges. In all of those
cases, inspectors, have placed
the businesses on a higher
inspection frequency in the
future.

t While scanning errors appear
to be relatively uncommon,
mistakes can and do -
happen. What it means is that
consumers need to remain
aware of the price that they
should be charged for
merchandise, Bronson said.
For example, among errors
detected during last week's
sweep was a $64 overcharge for
a woman's jacket at a North
Florida department store and an
overcharge of $39.50 for a
dress at a South Florida
department store. Both errors,
as well as all other pricing
mistakes found by inspectors,
were immediately corrected by
store management.
"Know the price of the
merchandise that you're buying,
make sure that's what you're
charged at the checkout line
and keep receipts,," Bronson
said. "If there is any
discrepancy, bring it to the
attention of store personnel."
The Commissioner's
Division of Standards tests
checkout scanners, as well as
most other devices that sell

BC science fair is a huge draw


More than 280
students, including
28 who will be
regional delegates,
participate in
countywide fair

By CLIFF SMELLEY.
Telegraph Staff Writer

It was a small crowd that
showed up at the Bradford
County science fair awards
ceremony on Dec. 8, but that
was in no way a reflection on
the level of participation in this
year's fair.
Many ribbons were not
handed out at the ceremony,
which was held at Starke
Elementary School, but that
was because so many students
had other obligations because
of various other events taking
place that night, such as the
Bradford Middle School band
concert.
"There are too many things
going on and these students are
involved all over the county,"
said Bradford Middle School
Principal Jeff Cable, who
served as master of
ceremonies.
Those students eventually
got their ribbons and there
were plenty of them. The
Bradford County. science fair
was comprised of 284 middle
school students, resulting in
255 projects (some students


worked in teams).
"It was awesome," Bradford
Middle School science teacher
Cindy Combs said. "I never
dreamed that we would have
that much participation."
Cable said, "For the first
time in years, every middle
school grade science teacher
had students enter projects in
the.,science fair. That's just
wonderful."'
There was so much
involvement, that space was at
a premium at the Bradford
County Fairgrounds; where the
science fair was set up.
: "We used every table they
had and we probably could've
used a few more," Combs. said
Thirty-six ribbons were
handed out for first, second
and third place, as well as a
ribbon for Best in Show, won
by Dean Shireman, and
ribbons for participation.
Also, the county's 28
regional delegates were
announced:- Jikoby Adams
(Bradford Middle School),
Dalton Belinske (BMS), Casey
Cloud (BMS), Cassie Coolidge
(BMS), Tyler Crawford
(BMS), Ashley Cruce (BMS),
Liz Davis (BMS), Tracie
Dobbs (BMS), Jenria Fulgham
(Lawtey Community School),
Michel'le Green and Tara
McCabe (BMS), Kaitlyn Johns
and Kirsten Patterson (BMS),
Travis Ledger (BMS), Dylan
Manning (BMS), Dillion Mills
(BMS), Brenden Mobley
(BMS). Kendall Norman


(LCS), Jennifer Padilla (BMS),
Tiffany Pendarvis (LCS),
Natali Powell (BMS), Rowdy
Rensberger (BMS), Hannah
Ricker (BMS), Willie Rogers
and Cody Samons (LCS),
Dean Shireman (BMS),
Brennan Starling (BMS) and
Tashina Wells (BMS).
Those students will
participate in the Suwannee
Valley Regional Science and
Engineering Fair Feb. 21-22 at
Lake City Community
College.
"Congratulations," Cable
told the students. "We wish
you the best of luck at the next
level. Just be proud as you can
be of what you've
accomplished."
This is the second straight
year there has been a,
countywide science fair in
Bradford County. In the past,
regional delegates advanced
from fairs held at their schools.
Now, winners from the
school fairs at Bradford
Middle School and Lawley
Community School advance to
the countywide fair prior to
earning the right to go to the
regional fair. Peg Trimble, an
LCS teacher, said she likes 'the
countywide fair, suggesting, it
creates a true sense of
community.
Also, Trimble said having to
do a science project may open
a student's eyes to a new
hobby or maybe even a career
path.
"'It opens a door for some

kids," Trimble said.
Perhaps more important is
how students have to rely upon
what they learn in the
classroom to complete a
science project. Trimble said
students utilize social studies,
English, math and art, as well
as science.
"It just absolutely covers fhe
entire curriculum," Trimble
said.
Combs added that students
are tested on research and
reference skills on the Florida


Copmprehensiv.e ,Assesspme0t.,


Test. Those have been problem
areas for Bradford students,
Combs said.
Doing science projects
allows students to better their
skills and do so, in a creative
way.
"This is. reinforcement,"
Combs said. "We're getting
these skills to them."

,Local kids taught selves to


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

George and Vickie Martin of
Lawtey thought it was cute
when their daughter, Garielle,
kept playing with a cardboard
Shutout of a piano keyboard
when she was about 10 years
old.
When she walked up to a
real piano one day 'and began
to play, they were amazed.
"We were dumbfounded," said
Vickie. "We had no idea she
really knew how to play."
"I've always had a desire to
play the piano," said Garielle.
She found the cardboard cutout-
in a book and started figuring
out the finger positions".
When her parents discovered
that she was very serious about
learning how to play, they
sought a private teacher. Local
music teachers had no
openings in their classes at the
time, but the Martins bought
her a keyboard for Christmas
that year. Garielle handled the
rest of it herself.
A cousin helped her learn
how to read music and local
piano teacher Mona Canova
gave her a piano book. Garielle
'has been playing and singing
;for churches, special
gatherings, nursing homes and
elderly shut ins ever since.
Garielle, now 18, is not the
only Martin child who shows
an aptitude for music,
" however. All three of her
younger- sisters were soon
following in her footsteps and
all four girls now perform
together.
Sherah, 17. recently taught
herself to play the flute-in
about a month's time. Carol
Ann, 14, has loved guitars
'since her eaerly.childhood and
",has been playing one seriously
I for about : year now.
SAlexandra, :13, was given a
clarinet in 2004 and has since
.taught herself to play it.
All four girls play for their
"church, Laura Baptist, and for
the churches of friends and
relatives as far away as
7 Bonifay in the Panhandle.
They are not actively
promoting themselves as a
gospel singing 'group, but
people keep asking them to
play and sing, so they do.
"We want to sing songs that
have -a message, not just
meaningless words;" said
Sherah.
The best messages, say all
four girls, are in the old hymns
arid they often perform these.
The\ have even gone to the
,trouble to research the history
of the traditional hymns they
enjoy the most.
Some of those hymns cost
their creators dearly since
writing Christian music was
'something people were often.
persecuted for in the old days.
"There are people who paid
great prices for some of those
old hymns," said Sherah.
The girls spend two to three
hours a day practicing
individually or as a group. If
they have a performance


coming up, they practice more.
With four of them working
on different instruments, it's
sometimes hard to find
individual practice rooms.
"Sometimes one of them has to
go outside to find a place to
practice," said Vickie.
In addition to all the
instruments the Martins


already play, Garielle is
learning to play the harp. She
has been teaching herself to
play that instrument for the
past year.
She wants a pedal harp, one
of the large harps you see on
television being played by
members of an orchestra.
However, with an $18,000
(


play mu
price tag, it isn't likely she will
have one soon, she said. For
now, she plays a smaller
version that she rests on a stool
in front of her.
Since the smaller harp
doesn't have the musical range
of the larger version, Garielle
also rewrites a lot of music to
better fit her instrument.
Alexandra is currently
teaching herself to play the
violin and, judging by the
sound she can now produce, is
doing a good job of it.
Carol Ann has alreadN
picked out her next instrument,
as well. She plans to teach
herself to play the cello as
soon as the family) can get one.
Alexandra and Sherah also
play the piano, after some


Itiple instruments


instruction by Garielle. All
four girls sing. None of them
has had any formal music
instruction.
Vickie attributes the
exceptional talent exhibited by
her daughters as a gift from
God. When she and George
Martin married, they could not
have children. George is a
minister, although he doesn't
have a church of his own. The
couple shared a deep belief in
God and Vickie read in the
Bible about how Hannah had
prayed for a child before
Samuel's birth.
"Hannah promised God that
if he gate her a child, she
would gise the child back to
God," said Vickie. "I1 prayed
and told God that no matter
how many children he gate


me, 1 would give them back
again. I didn't know at that
time how that would take
shape."
Now, she thinks she knows.
The girls' musical talent and
desire to perform gospel
mus,ic-especially the old,
traditional hymns, seems to
Vickie to be a signpost
pointing the way they are
intended to go.
The Martin children have
been home schooled for their
entire lies. They spend each
day from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p m
working on their studies and
then break for lunch. Alter
lunch, the% continue %iith their
school work until theN finii-h ii.

Blanding commander shares experiences


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Television cannot show the.
true scope of what life is like
in Afghanistan. Col. David
"Benny" Nelson knows. He
was there in person and he
shared his experience with'
members of the Kiwanis Club
of Starke on Dec. 6.
Nelson, the garrison
commander at Camp Blanding,.
was deployed to Afghanistan
in support of Operation
Enduring Freedom in July
2002 as the commander of the'
930th Army Liaison Team,
which is based in Homestead.
He has been to Third World
countries, but he said the'
conditions he saw in
Afghanistan were hard to,
describe.
"This was probably worse
than anything I've ever been
to," Nelson said. "We referred
to it as a Fourth World


to be made on what to do with
the rest of the money. Nelson
said the school was going to be
relocated; so the Guardsmen
did not want to purchase
anything that would be a
permanent fixture.
What the Guardsmen did
was, hire local carpenters to
build wooden.J.benches and
tables for the students to work
at. Nelson said the children's
faces lit up when they received
the benches and tables, which
was .a real rewarding
experience for him.
'"Those kids were just so
excited," he said.
Unfortunately, Nelson also
had a sad experience involving
a .. child, who was
approximately 8, years old,
who was run over by a military
vehicle driven by one of
Nelson's lieutenants.
Nelson apologized to the
father, who was sitting nearby,
numerous times, but the man
showed little emotion, saying


Pictured above is the new combined support
maintenance shop earlier in its construction phase.
Col. David "Benny" Nelson, Camp Blanding's


garrison commander, said personnel should be able
to move into the new $24 million facility any time
now.


commissioned officer
education system as, well as
officer candidate school.
"Instead of sending
(soldiers) off to a regular
Army school, we train them
right here," Nelson said.
Another project Nelson is
excited about is the
construction of a 44t Weapons
of Mass Destruction Civil
Support Team facility at a cost
of approximately $1.2 million.
"I don't know if you know
it, but you have a certified civil


support team here full tim& at
Camp Blanding," Nelson said.
"That's one of the few
certified in the country that
responds in the event we have
a weapons of mass destruction
situation. That ought to give
you some peace of
mind-you've got some
certified and trained
professionals over there.
"Hopefully, we'll never use
that, but they're there if we
need them.".


Nelson discussed several
other projects, pointing out
that all but one of the projects2O
has been or is being funded by
federal dollars... ..
The credit' for that, Nelson
said, goes to Maj. Gen.
Douglas Burnett, adjutant'
general for the state of Florida. m
"I've never seen anybody as-
good as he is as fair as going
out and getting the money we"
need for our soldiers;" Nelson
said.


I


Recent construction projects at Camp Blanding have included the addition of
lakefront cottages for recreational use by soldiers and their families.


country. It's basically in its
own class. There is so much
poverty over there it is unreal."
Nelson said people who live
in the poorest areas of this
country would,be living "high
-on the hog" if they were in
Afghanistan.,
One particular sight, close to
where Nelson's unit was
billeted, spurred Nelson to take
action.
He said there was a building
that he took to be deserted. In
fact, it would have been
condemned and destroyed here
in the States. However, this
building was a school.
"We said, 'We've got to do
something here. We want to do
more than our military
mission, we want to help-
rebuild Afghanistan,'" Nelson
said. "We figured the best way
we could rebuild Afghanistan
was through education and its
children."
Nelson met with the
school's principal and an
interpreter, asking the man
what the school needed. The
principal responded by saying
he wanted just a few pieces of;
.paper and a clock-he would .
be happy just to get that. -o ;
He could tell the school
needed a lot more by looking
at it, Nelson said, though he
suspected the principal was
skeptical that the school would
actually receive anything.
Nelson, through e-mail,
contacted people in the States,
describing the conditions of
the school and forwarding
pictures of the school.
"I got $2,000 in cash over a
period of three or four months
and then we got $800 worth of
.school supplies sent to us,"
Nelson said.
Paper and a clock were
purchased, but a decision had

it was simply destiny.
It was hard for Nelson to
relate to. He said if anything
happened to his 24-year-old
son, he would become
hysterical.
"This father acted as if
basically. nothing had
happened," Nelson said. "I
think I was more taken aback
and upset than he was." -
Nelson said when he looks
at the U.S. involvement in
Afghanistan, he can conclude
that this country's presence is
making a difference.
"I look back now and I see
they've elected a president,
they've elected their
legislature," Nelson said. "I
can honestly stand right here
today and say Afghanistan is a
success and will be a success."
Nelson opened his speech by
talking about some of the.
construction projects going on
at Camp Blanding, such as the
recent completion of six
lakeside cottages-for use by


soldiers and their
families-and a physical
fitness center. The total for. the
two projects, which also
includes two cottages that are
95-percent complete, is more
than $1.2 million.
A huge undertaking is the
construction of a new
combined support maintenance
shop at a cost of $24 million.
Nelson said personnel should
be moving into the new
building anytime now.
Phase I of the construction
of a new Regional Training
Institute is currently under
way. The total cost of that
project will be $50 million.
The Regional Training
Institute includes the non-

way last week when FWC
officers charged them with six
counts of illegally killing deer.
The charges stemmed from a
two-week investigation that
began the opening weekend of
the general gun hunting season
in the Ocala National Forest,
took officers to a hunt club
near Samsula, and finally to a
residence in Orange City.
This story began mid-

FWC officers Washburn Wear

forest, keeping their eyes open
for illegal activity. The two

Emanuel had his hunting
license, but Taylor didn't and
Simpson wrote him a ticket for
the violation.
However, things didn't end
there. The officers noticed some
blood on the tailgate of the
truck and asked about it.
Emanuel told them it was
from a deer he killed the day
before.
After additional questioning
and a variety of inconsistent
answers, the officers told
Emanuel and Taylor they
suspected some illegal activity
was going on, and the men
were under investigation.
Wear and Simpson drove
Emanuel and Taylor to a hunt
club in the Samsula area of
Volusia County. The men said
they had killed the deer there
but continued to tell the
officers tall tales about where
the deer carcass was. In one
version of events they claimed
they threw the carcass in a

day. Then they begin practice..
The decision to home school
their children just sort of
happened, said Vickie.
Garielle attended kindergarten
in a public school. George's
mother lived with the family at
the time and had health
problems. Garielle brought
home the usual array of viruses
from school and passed them
along. "We all stayed sick that
entire year." said Vickie.
That problem, coupled with
a desire to provide a more
Christianity-based education
for their children, prompted
the Martins to decide to
provide their education
through Vickie's efforts,
instead of at a publicschool.
"We felt that this (home
schooling) was the route that
was right for us and it's been
very beneficial since it allowed
the girls a more flexible
schedule so they can sing at
i more places," said Vickie.
"Seeing what has happened
with them has made me realize,
That God has laid a hand on
them. (Musical talent) is so


strong in their lives, it nad to
be from the Lord," said Vickie.
.Garielle is 18 and ready to
graduate, but she said she
doesn't plan to go to college.
"My long-term goal is to
glorify God through music,"
said Garielle. "I have no
aspirations for fame or fortune,
but I plan to continue to
perform."'
Sherah said all four sisters
have thought about a future in
music. "We intend to stay
together and perform as a
group," she said.
In addition to practicing and
preparing for performances,
the girls help care for their,96-
year-old aunt, Ila Helseth.
Helseth lives next door to the
Martins and is remarkably self-
sufficient for her age. The
Martins prepare her meals and
keep her house clean. They
also take her on weekly
outings.'
Sherah also paints and
designs her own greeting
cards. "They're much prettier
than the ones you can buy in a
store," said Vickie.
All four girls do needlework
and like to bake homemade
goodies in their spare time,
although they don't actually
have a lot of spare time.

While Wear and Simpson
were at the hunt club with the
suspects, Lt. Gregg Eason,
FWC supervisor for the Ocala
National Forest, was at the
suspects' residence in Orange
City where he found fresh deer
meat and numerous deer antlers,
including a trophy-quality 8-
point in velvet. Eason radioed
Wear and Simpson with this
new information.
Eventually, Emanuel and
Taylor showed the officers
where they had dumped two
deer they killed at night a
couple of weeks earlier. In the
end, the officers seized a
Toyota pickup truck, two rifles,
a spotlight, deer meat and the
velvet antlers of a buck Taylor
said he killed in August.
Taylor also said he killed a 6-

archery season, but officers
could not charge him with that
violation because too much
time had lapsed.

organized by Mary Todd as the
second oldest club of its type
in Florida. Under Todd's
guidance, oak trees were carted
in on wagons and set along the
town streets. Many of those

The Depression hit Lawtey
in the 1930s as it did
everywhere and economic
progress came to a standstill.
Lawtey businesses closed and
stood vacant. Many of the
stately homes "built by the
Chicagoans burned during this
time. Even strawberries
suffered.
At its height, the strawberry
industry saw 13 to 14 train car-
loads of berries shipped per
day from the Lawfey platform.
The Depression, increased
labor .costs and competition
from California and Mexico
caused growers .to begin to
abandon the vast fields inr the
early 1940s.
They left the strawberry
fields and went to Camp
Blanding to work high-paying
construction jobs as America,
