Death of Raiford man ruled homicide


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The death of a Raiford man
has been ruled a homicide after
he was found with three
gunshot wounds to the chest.
Charles Flem Lynn, 66, of
Raiford was found laying on
his right side near a utility shed
in his brother's back yard.
Carlton Lynn, Chalres'


brother, reported finding
Charles' body at
approximately 5:29 p.m.
According to Capt. Gary
Seay of the Union County
Sheriff's Office, investigators
spent more than I hours
combing the scene for clues to
the mysterious death.
"We wrapped up our
investigation of the backyard
around 4:30 a.m.," Seay said.


"The rain we received that
afternoon slowed the
investigation considerably."
According to Seay, Charles'
wife, Irene, called 911 to
report she believed he had
collapsed from what she
believed to be heat exhaustion.
When emergency personnel
arrived, they found the gunshot
wounds to Lynn's chest. Seay
said emergency personnel also


discovered another important
clue.
"They found that Lynn's
body had already gone into full
rigor mortis,' Seay said. "That
process takes a few hours to
come about, so I believe he
was shot sometime between 10
a.m. and noon."
Seay said investigators have
not determined why Lynn was
in his brother's backyard.


"We have interviewed more
than 20 people involved with
Lynn or the family," Seay said.
"We have not found anyone
who can tell us what Charles
would be doing in his brother's
backyard."

Accident sends three people to hospital


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Florida Highway Patrol
is looking for a man after the
truck he was driving collided
with another and he fled the
scene.
According to a report from
Trooper K.M. Boatright Jr.,
The 1996 Ford pickup the
unidentified man was driving
was traveling westbound on
S.R. 100. For unknown
reasons, the truck failed to
maintain the proper lane of
travel and struck a 2003 Dodge
pickup traveling eastbound.
The trucks collided in the
middle of the Swift Creek
Bridge.
. The impact caused the Ford
to go'-airborne and land on the
guardrail of the bridge. A
trailer, full of pallets, the
Dodge was carrying became
detached and struck the rear of
the truck.
According to witnesses at
the scene, the driver of the
Ford got out the truck and left
the scene in a red car. One of
the witnesses followed the car
to a house in Lake Butler.


Paramedic Brian Schull looks over what is left of two pick-up trucks that met head-
on on the Swift Creek Bridge of S.R. 100 east on the Union/Columbia County line.
The driver of the Ford (pictured sitting on top of the guardrail) fled the scene of the
accident. Three other people where taken to the hospital, two by helicopter.

EMS director gets schedule change


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
An issue that has been up in
the air for the past two months
finally came to a landing at a
special meeting on Apri.1 24,
but it was far from a smooth
one.
At issue was a change in the
schedule and pay rate of Union
County's emergency medical
services director Allen, Parrish.
In February, Parrish .asked
county commissioners to
consider a change to the
current schedule he was
working. Along with the
schedule change he asked
commissioners to change the
way he was paid.
Currently Parrish works a
24-hour shift every third day.
He serves as a paramedic in
the regular shift rotation. When
not on-duty, Parrish performs
his duties as EMS director and
the county's fire chief. His
wages are based on the number
of hours we works each week;
In a letter dated February 13,
Parrish asked the board to
change his work schedule to
resemble that of an EMS
director. Parrish wanted to
work five-nine hours days,
Monday-Friday. The, request
also asked that he be placed on
salary, rather than an hourly
wage.
"In the letter Parrish said he
could not perform the duties of
EMS director and fire chief to.
his full potential because many:
of-the hours he was working.
were outside of normal
business hours.


"Many of these hours are late
nights hours, weekend hours
and other times when its not
possible to conduct business
of the department," Parrish
said.
At the 'special meeting,
Parrish began the meeting by
once again explaining his

request.
"As I presented back in
February, the main thing I'm
asking for is a schedule
change," Parrish said. "I want
to go back to an administrative
shift. With my duties as
paramedic and EMS director, it
puts a strain on those times
when someone calls in (sick)."
He told the board that while
asking for the change in hours
he recognized that something
would have to be done to
adjust his pay
"I think that's what is
causing the most concern for
everybody," Parrish said.
"A great deal of concern,".
said Commissioner Morris,
Dobbs.
Parrish went on to say that he
disagreed with a figure that
Union County Finance
Director Donna Jackson had
come up with on what it would
cost to place a person in the
shift Parrish would be
vacating.
"I don't feel the figures Ms.
Jackson has presented to you
are correct in several different
areas and would like an
opportunity to explain why,"
Parrish said.
His first disagreement came
with a figure Jackson had
presented as the cost of hiring


a full-time emergency medical
technician,
"Ms. Jackson states that it is
going to require $36,339 to
hire a full-time EMT," Parrish
said. ."My full-time EMTs
make $7.30 per hour. If you
figure up that many hours in a
year it comes no where near
$36,000."
Jackson asked for a chance to
respond.
"Of your full-time staff not a
single one of them, according
to my estimations, in the 2004-
05 fiscal year would have
made less than $35,000,"
Jackson said.
Parrish agreed with the
figure so Jackson questioned
him further.
"So your going to tell me my
assumption and presumption of
$36,339 is, wrong even though
your employees, now, there's
not single one of -them that
makes less than $35,000 a
year?" lackson asked,
"Yes maam I am," Parrish
said.
Jackson said that Parrish's
figures were based on the
assumption that EMS
personnel would work a set
schedule of 112 hours average.
"Not a single one of your.
employees has worked under
that average," Jackson said. "If
you propose their going to do
that, where are you going to
get the extra hours from?"
SParrish said he would be glad
to explain.
"During the past two years,

qualifying fees is Friday, July
21, at noon. (The final day to
qualify by the petition method
is June 19. Federal and judicial

we've had anywhere from one
to two open slots in our
schedule. That's 240 hours a
month," Parrish said. "We've
had to cover those with full-
time staff, thus, the overtime."
Parrish said he detailed in his
February letter that most of the
employees Jacskon was
referring to were working 140-
150 hours a month instead of
the 112 scheduled. This was
th'e reason for the higher
salary.
"When you have 20 24-hour
slots that you have to cover
times two employees, that adds
up to a considerable amount of
hours," Parrish said. "This
proposal you,,have in front of
you will help alleviate that as
well."
Jackson challenged that the
proposal before the board did
not include any new staff
members.
"These are all the same ones
you currently have," Jacskon
said.
Parrish said the proposal
recognized that issue.
"As I said in the proposal
and the February meeting,
covering my slot would be
covered by a call-time EMT
who would be making $7 per
hour," Parrish said. "Any other
time, call-time, sick time or
annual leave would be covered
by myself on a salary basis."
Parrish was referring to
anytime personnel called in
sick or were on annual leave,
the time missed by the
employee would be covered by
himself.
"That still doesn't answer for
the fact that all the people who
you have listed on here, are the
same people who are currently
working, and have been
working. So if all of these
people who have been working
all of these hours, how is one
person going to cover the
hours that are not in your
proposal?" Jackson asked. "
Which in my estimation is
over 6,756 hours. One person
can not possibly cover that
m a n y h o u r s."'
Jackson reminded Parrish that
as of last fiscal year he had,
been working 5,324 hours and
told the board it is was killing
him.
"So howv would 6,700 not,kill
somebody\ lse?' Jac'ksdrf"
asked.
Parrish told Jackson he was
unclear as to where she was
coming up with that number.
,"I took hours that have been
paid to these staff members
listed," Jackson said, "What
I'm saying is that these same
staff members, your proposing
to cut them down to an average
112 hours when not single one
of them worked less than that."
Jackson then stated even if
Parrish added one staff
member to cover his position,
he would still have gaps to
cover.
"You. still have gaps in the
hours the current staff has been
working, that are not covered,"
Jackson said.
Parrissh pointed out that the
since the 2004-05 fiscal year,
staff has increased in the
department.
"See Ms. Jackson- we've
picked up, since you got these
from the 2004-05 year, we've
picked utip two employees to
fill slots," Parrish. said. "I just
wanted to make you aWare of
that."
Jackson said she was not,
aware of the new personnel.
"Really, who are they?"
Jackson asked.
Parrish named the two
Employees and Jackson said
one was on her list.
"He couldn't have been here
very long because he just
started with us," Parrish said.
S Jackson said that he was
included on Parrish's salary
which is where is derived her
numbers.
Commissioner Ricky Jenkins
asked about the open slots in
the schedule.
"We've had two open slots
for two years," asked Jenkins.
"Why haven't we filled them?"
Parrish explained that he was
using the call-time and part-
time people he had to fill the
positions.
The discussion then turned to
the amount of overtime current


personnel were being given.
"It looks like were using a lot
of overtime to cover these
slots," Jenkins said.
"We're using our full-time'
people at a higher rate,"'
Jackson said. "Obviously,
that's what you just stated."
Parrish agreed 'but said it was
because of the limited number
of part-time personnel
available.
Commissioner Karen Cossey
asked Parrish why the county
S had more paramedics than


EMTs. She wanted to know
why the amount could not be
equalled out.
"Originally we did, but since
that time we've had EMTs that
have gone to school to become
paramedics," Parrish said. "It's
a benefit to the county." *
Parrish explained the only
why to even out personnel
would be to lock up the spots.
"But that's not something
that's frankly good for patient
care," Parrish said.
Jenkins then brought up the
point that overtime wages had
been hurting the county for a
long time.
"We have not staying within
the hours," Jenkins said.
Parrish said in a perfect
world his department would
have no overtime.
"But people get sick and we
have to cover annual leave,"
'Parrish said. "I look at the time
cards every morning to keep
up with it."
Chairman Wayne Ssmith
then asked Parrish if the figure
of $66,000 for annual salary
was negotiable.
"Yes sir Mr. Smith,"
Parrish said. "I told in you in
the February meeting I will
continue to serve Union
County to the best of my
ability. I asked for what I
thought was fair."
Smith said what he could not
go along with was the fact that
Parrish had been putting in
180-190 hours per pay period
and he was basically asking for
the same amount of money for
a 45 hour week.
"That's something I can't
agree with," Smith said.
"That's why I asked if it was
negotiable."
Smith then asked Parrish
what was the least amount he
would be willing to take.
"I don't have one Mr. Smith,
I want the board to tell me
what they think is fair," Parrish
said. "As a paramedic, EMS
director and fire coordinator, I
don't think the $47,000 in the
budget is fair for all three of
those positions."
Dobbs then suggested that
the board relieve him of his
responsibility as fire chief.
"Aren't there trained people
that can take that over," Dobbs
said. "If your having a problem
with the time. It's, just
something I want to throw out
there."
Jenkins reminded Parrish that
S,:hen the commission made
o hifre. chief. he asked him if.
it would be too much.
"Remember I asked you that
night, 'Allen, I think this is
going to overload you boat',"
Jenkins said "It's just put more
load on everything you got
going."
Parrish reiterated that all he
really wanted was a schedule
change and similar salary.
"But it's really blown up to
be a big deal and I certainly
didn't intend for it to. be,"
Parrish said. ,,
Smith then said he had given
the proposal quite a bit of
thought and offered up a
salary.
"I'd go $50,000," Smith said.
Commissioner Melaine
"Red" Clyatt then brought up
the point about taking the fire
department duties away from.
Parrish.
"If we take the fire
department away from you,
we'll just have to find someone
else to do," Clyatt said. "If we


give it to someone else it's
going to cost us at least
$10,000."
Dobbs then explained the
objections he had with the
salary that was being proposed.
"I understand the hours,"
Dobbs said. "But we've got
one supervisor with 34 years
experience making $38,405 a
year. Another with 16 years
experience making $38,423.
We're all important.
Everybody's important."
Dobbs said he had seen times
when the road department was
more important than
emergency services.
"How I'm going to justify a
$50,000 or $60,000 a year
salary when we have other
people with more years of
experience making less?"
Dobbs asked.
The discussion then turned to
a memo prepared by Jackson.
In it she explained the salary
and years of experience of all
the department heads within
the county. Parrish then told
Jackson that the he felt the
memo prepared by her for the
meeting was very biased.
The topic then turned to the
work actually done by the
EMTs and paramedics on
Parrish's staff.
"These guys are not out there
doing eight hours of work, or
10 hours or 20 hours,", Clyatt
said. "There sleeping 10 hours
a night, most times. There
watching fours of 'television a
night. You can't pay a man
$10 or $12 an hour for a job
like that. Your paying him
around the clock."
Jenkins said he felt all
county's employees were just
important as those in the EMS
department.
"I think any employee we
have is just as important as
another one," Jenkins said.
"From the road department to
solid waste to EMS right on
down the line."
The discussion circled
around the same issues for a
short time until Clyatt made a
motion to bring it to a close.
"I move that we pay Mr.
Parrish $55,000 year to be
EMS director, fire chief and
fill-in paramedic," Clyatt said.
Cossey seconded the motion.
The vote came down 3-2 with
Dobbs and Jenkins voting
against it.
"I could not justify paying
Mr. Parrish more money in the
middle of the Near," Dobbs
said. "All of our supervisors
are e"uI'al. 'One is just as
important as the other."
Jenkins said he felt the same
way.
"We're not doing our
supervisors justice by doing
this," Jenkins said. "Each one
is just as .important as the
next."
Jenkins also said he did not
agree with the board
negotiating with an employee.
"We are the board, we are
.the ones that set the salaries at
budget time," Jenkins 'said.
"Why should we be
negotiating this now? I don't
think we should be doing it at
all."

LB to celebrate Arbor Day Friday


On April 10, the city of Lake
Butler city commission voted
to proclaim Friday, April 28,
as Arbor Day in lake Butler.
"The city recognizes the
tremendous value provide by
planting, growing and
preserving trees," said City
Manager Richard Tillis. "Trees
throughout the city provide
oxygen, shade, wildlife habitat,
fuel and countless wood
products in our economy."
The proclamation, approved
by a 5-0 vote, encourages all
citizens of Lake Butler to
enhance the community by
planting a tree.
The city choose April 28
because it is National Arbor
Day.
"Tree planting activities are
planned for that day," Tillis
said. "Students from several of
the local schools will come to
plant trees in our wildflower
project area."
Tillis told commissioners
that as in past years, the city
will be helped by the Florida
Department of Forestry.
"Rangers from the division
of forestry come .out and
explain to the students a little
about Arbor Day as well as
how trees grow," Tillis said.
"They also hand out trees for
the children to plant at home."
The idea for Arbor Day
originally came from
Nebraska. A visit to Nebraska
today wouldn't disclose that
the state was once a treeless-
plain. Yet it was the lack of
trees there that led to the
founding of Arbor Day -in the
1800s.
Among pioneers moving
into the Nebraska Territory in
1854 was J. Sterling Morton
from Detroit. He and his wife
were lovers of nature, and the
I home they established in
Nebraska was quickly planted
with trees, shrubs and flowers.
Morton was a journalist and
soon became editor of
Nebraska's. first newspaper.
Given that forum, he spread
agricultural information and

his enthusiasm for trees to an
equally enthusiastic audience.
His fellow pioneers missed
their trees. But, more
importantly, trees were needed
as windbreaks to keep soil in
place, for fuel and building
materials, and for shade from
the hot sun.
Morton not only advocated
tree planting by individuals in
his articles and editorials, but
he also encouraged civic
organizations and groups to
join in. His prominence in the
area increased, and he became
secretary of the Nebraska
Territory, which provided
another opportunity to stress
the value of trees.
Arbor Day's Beginnings
On January 4, 1872, Morton
first proposed a tree-planting
holiday to be called "Arbor
Day" at a meeting of the State
Board of Agriculture. The date
was set for April 10, 1872.
Prizes were offered to counties
and individuals for planting
properly the largest number of
trees on that day. It was
estimated that more than one
million trees were planted in
Nebraska on the first Arbor
Day.
Arbor Day was officially
proclaimed by the young
state's Gov. Robert W. Furnas
on March 12, 1874, and the
day itself was observed April
10, 1874. In 1885, Arbor Day
was named a legal holiday in
Nebraska and April 22,
Morton's birthday, was
selected as the date for its
permanent observance.
According to accounts from
the Nebraska City News, April
1885, the City celebrated
Arbor Day with a grand parade
and a speech by J. Sterling
Morton. Students of different
grades met at their respective
school rooms in the morning
for the purpose of planting at
least one tree. Each tree that
was planted was labeled with
the grade, the time planted,
and was to be specially cared
for by that grade.



Cats seem to go on the
principle that it never does
any harm to ask for what
you want.

I-


When the plantings were
completed, 1000 students
formed a line to begin the
parade from the various
schools to Nebraska City's
opera house. In the parade,
each class carried colorful
banners made of satin with silk
lining and trimmed with gold
fringe. The letters on the
banners were painted in oil
colors. By the time the parade
reached the opera house the
throng numbered well over the
1000 as townspeople joined
the march. Every available
foot of space in the opera
house was occupied, the
students having the front seats
and gallery while the older
persons stood. At 11:00, the
throng of celebrants was
addressed by the founder of
Arbor Day, J. Sterling Morton.
Mr. Morton was listened to
with much attention, and
loudly applauded at the close
of his address. At the
conclusion of the ceremonies,
the students sang "America,"
and the large audience was
dismissed.
This ended the first
celebration of Arbor Day as a
legal holiday, and, as reported
by the newspaper, "to say that
it was a complete success but
faintly expresses it. A
celebration of this kind results
in good to all, and is worthy of
imitation by every school in
the state."
During the 1870s, other
states passed legislation to
observe Arbor Day, and the
tradition began in schools
nationwide in 1882.
Today the most common
date for the state observances
is the last Friday in April, and
several U.S. presidents have
proclaimed a national Arbor
Day on that date. But a number
of state Arbor Days are at
other times to coincided with
the best tree planting weather,
from January and February in
the south to May in the far
north.
Arbor Day has now spread
beyond the United States and
is observed in many countries
of the world.

Farmer's market

opens this Saturday


By JACQUE BREMAN
UC Extension Agent

The Union County Farmer's
Market board of directors
would like everyone to know
that the spring opening of the
market will be on Saturday,
April 29 at 8 a.m.
Farmers will be in place to
sell fresh, locally-grown
produce. The market now has
more than a dozen farmers
certified to accept Farmer's
Market Nutrition Program and
Elder Care coupons for

Avian Influenza
Is serious
disease
Avian influenza is a serious
disease concern for poultry
producers and animal health
officials. While influenza
strains in birds, just as in
people, vary considerably in
severity, some influenza
viruses can be devastating to
dojta eiq polytry. Recent ..,
information on- Asian strains.
thai rnia infect people as well
as birds have only heightened
those concerns. The Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, Division
of Animal Industry, regularly
monitors our domestic fowl for
evidence of influenza.
The Division has 35'
authorized agents trained to
collect samples and testing is
carried out in both the Live
Oak Diagnostic Laboratory
and the Kissimmee Diagnostic
Laboratory. The Kissimmee
Diagnostic Laboratory is
recognized and approved to
conduct specific tests to
identify Nirulent strains of the
virus. Samples are regularly
collected. from exhibition or
back yard flocks, and
commercial poultry breeding
flocks are sampled and tested
every 90 days. Additionally,
there are 35 botanicas that
participate in a voluntary
surveillance and testing
program. This. -year
surveillance sampling and
testing for.avian influenza, has
expanded to include testing
birds at small animal sales, live
bird markets, county fairs and
exhibitions.
.Poultry from other countries;
with serious strains of avian
influenza virus are not
permitted to enter the United
States. Additionally, poultry
entering Florida from other
states can not be imported
from quarantined areas and all
other poultry must have a
permit for entry. Commercial
poultry must originate from
avian influenza free flocks in
addition to meeting other
import requirements.



Teamwork is a make or ,
break situation. Either you
help make it or the lack of it
will break you.
-Kris A. Hiatt


Farmers have really be
working hard this season to
have produce ready for
consumers by the markets
opening. The board looks
forward to having a variety of
spring vegetables available for
consumers.
There will be bluegrass"
music and a grand opening at 9
a.m. Be sure to come by and
support your local farmers,
enjoy the music, and enjoy the
beautiful spring weather.
For more information
contact the Union County
Extension Office at 496-2321.


Veterinarians, veterinary
laboratories, and those
working with birds are
required to report diseases
suspected as being influenza.
Diseased poultry are tested and
fully investigated and any
reports of influenza-like
disease are'handled on an
urgent basis until the disease
can be fully identified and
assessed. In the event of
finding a serious strain,
emergency measures will be'
taken immediately to quickly.
contain' the virus among
exposed poultry. Quarantine
and other emergency plans are
'in place to eradicate such a
disease as quickly as possible,
should it be found.
The last reportable case, a
potentially serious strain of
avian influenza in Florida
occurred in a single bird in a
botanica in 2001. Birds at
these premises were
depopulated and the premises
cleaned and disinfected to
ensure that 'virus was
eliminated. While Florida has
been fortunate in recent years,
other States have experienced
avian influenza outbreaks that
required eradication .efforts..
Eradication, once an outbreak
has occurred, involves
intensified surveillance, strong
biosecurity measures to reduce
the chance of disease spread,
and the humane destruction of
affected birds. These measures
have been successful in other
states and Florida, working
with the USDA, is prepared to
lead such efforts to eliminate
an outbreak of avian influenza
should the need arise.

Program helps
soldiers
oversees.
Manhattanville College's My
Soldier program
allows you to celebrate
Armed Services Day and
Memorial Day this May by
showing your support for US
military personnel. My Soldier
is a program
that puts politics aside and
lets U.S. soldiers know that
someone back home
cares.
U.S. Army Sergeant Juan
Salas, a student at
Manhattanville College in
Purchase, New York served
for 14 months in Iraq. Upon
his return to campus,
he and,' Manhattanville
President Richard Berman
developed My Soldier to
brings soldiers and
American citizens together and
help soldiers feel
appreciated.
According to the college's
president Richard Berman
"Our service men and
women as well as their
families deserve to know they
are supported at home.
Manhattanville My Soldier
is a free program that'connects
American
civilians with a soldier
deployed in a hardship area
like Iraq and
Afghanistan by establishing
pen pal relationships. Our
letter writing
program offers an
opportunity to get to know a
soldier and aims to humanize
the men and women who are
voluntarily serving in our
military".
When a person enrolls in the
My Soldier program at
www.mysoldier.com, they
agree to adopt a soldier as a
pen pal. They receive a
"starter kit"
containing a free red My
Soldier bracelet to publicly
show their support
for American troops and
guidelines for writing letters to
their deployed


United States Armed
Serviceperson. Typically, the
soldier then replies and
the direct correspondence .
begins. Participants may also
choose to send
care packages, which are
greatly appreciated (but not
expected) by the
soldiers. The program is
free, but donations that are
applied to operating
coasts are encouraged.
My Soldier is reminiscent of
the POW/MIA bracelet
program that was launched
on Veteran's Day, 1970.
That campaign was the
brainchild of two college
students in Los Angeles,
who were looking for ways
young people could
support soldiers overseas
without becoming involved in
the controversy
surrounding the war.
Manhattanville's particular
program is born from the
college's mission to "educate
ethically and socially
responsible leaders
for the global community."
It is also a natural outgrowth of
the college's
commitment to empower
students to be passionate and
to pursue their dreams
to make the world a better
place.
"For some young people, the
POW bracelets represented a
political
awakening," said Berman,
who was a college student at
the University of
Michigan during the
Vietnam War. "That's what
we hope will happen at
Manhattanville and across
the country. Wearing the
bracelet will be a
reminder that serviceman are
making sacrifices for
democracy right now."
Juan simply hopes to get the
message out about the dignity
and conviction
of his comrades, who he
witnessed firsthand. "I want to
reach out to guys
that I know, members of a
platoon I served in, to leL them
know somebody


Nature has given to men one tongue, but two ears, that we
may hear from others twice as much as we speak.
-Epictetus

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are
something to do, something to love and something to hope

back home is thinking about
them. Somebody back home
cares."

Administrative Professionals Week runs through Saturday


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Need to make it into an
officially important person's
appointment book or get to
learn little-known facts about
your business competitor?
Get to know their secretary..
Often the first people you
hear on the phone or see when
you walk in the door to a
business or organization are
these adm-inistrative
professionals, and this is the
week to celebrate them and all
they do.
Mary Redding is a Bradford
County native and the
receptionist for the Bradford-
Union Vocational-Technical
Center.
If you have been into the
Vo-Tech in the past 18 years,
Redding's smile or kind words
may have greeted you.
The theme for this year's
-weeklong holiday is "creating
excellence," according to the
International Association of
Administrative Professionals,
and Redding said that is what
she and her coworkers strive to
do at the Vo-Tech.
'' "We've grown as a school,"
she said.
In .her 22 years with, the
Bradford County School
District (including stops hat
Hampton Elementary, Starke
Elementary and 'Bradford
High), she has seen the schools
grow, go through
reaccreditation, add programs
(carpentry, LPN, etc.) and
encourage students, all in an
effort to create this excellence
along the way.
: "There's a need we. offer
here (at the Vo-Tech) that
can't be matched," she said.
- While Redding may be the'
mascot that everyone sees out
front, she. said the Vo-Tech is a
definitely a team operation.
"We work as a team," she
said. "We're concerned -about
the welfare of the students
first."
Redding said she has the
normal clerical duties,
organizing social events and
answering phones as any
administrative professional

It will eventually reach the
United States.
That's what health officials
are saying about the H5Ni
avian influenza virus that has
been spreading from Asia.
SB.irds migrate, thus the
conclusion' that this country'
cannot avoid the bird flu..
However, along with that
certainty is an
uncertainty-will the virus
ever be transmitted from
human to human? Since that is
not known, preparation and
education are essential in case
a pandemic does occur..
Winnie Holland,
administrator for the Bradford
Count) anid ,Union County
health departments, said health
officials in this country have,
been following the progress of
the flu since October of last
year. Secretary Mike Leavitt of
the United,States Department
of Health and Human Services
has been traveling the country,
encouraging states to hold
summits 'in which health and.
government officials, and
community members discuss
what steps to take in the event
of a pandemic.
,."Right here in Bradford
County we had an exercise in
February called Pandemic
Pandemonium," Holland said.
'Sit really was an exercise to
prevent pandemonium. We had
A lot of our partners from the
community. It was a table-top
exercise.', .
The exercise, developed by
Florida State University,
involved approximately 25
people from. the. county,
including government officials
and representatives from the
health department and Shands
Starke. People were divided
into groups and they witnessed
different scenarios, related to


does, but she said her job is
more than that. She gets to
help kids succeed.
"My biggest thing every day
is to just make someone's day
better," she said. She just does
it in a little different way than
a teacher.
Redding said it was her
responsibility to "be the
encourager ... (students) might
not have at home."
This can be achieved by a
hug, a pat on the back or even
a smile, she said. "I'm a people
person, and I never have the
same day twice."
Students bring back some of
her fondest memories, like the
elderly couple who got their
GEDs together at the Vo-Tech
and presented them to their
family for Christmas.
"It's a great sense of
purpose" for Redding to be a
part of the Vo-Tech, she said.
"It's a very big part of my
life."
When asked if there was
something she didn't like
about her job, Redding said
with a smile, "I can't think of a
thing. I love my job."
Redding was a stay-a-home
mom, a teacher's aide, and she
even "dabbled in real estate."
but it was when she began
seeking a job to fit in with her
children's schedules that she
found her spot on the Vo-Tech
team.
"I'm only part of a team.
There's no big I's and little
you's here."
Vivian :Covington, a third-
year Vo-Tech data entry clerk.
said Redding is a "very sweet
person."
"She has been a positie
'influence, both personal and
professional, in my life."
When not at work, Redding
can be found doing yard work,

spending time with her two
grow n sons, granddaughter and
her elderly parents. or taking
part in her church.
"My faith is very
important," she said.. The job

Redding also spends a fair


the flu, that played out on a
computer. After viewing each
scenario, the participants
answered questions.
"It was just a really good
exercise," Holland said.

Why the concern?
As its name suggests, the
H5NI avian influenza virus is
one that affects birds., Wild
birds carry the virus, but they
rarely get sick from it.
Domesticated birds such as
chickens, ducks and turkeys,
can get very sick from it and
die.
If it affects birds, why the
concern among the human
population? ,
. "Well, the big deal is that
we're concerned that (the
virus) may change and be able
to be transmitted from human
to human," Holland said.
That has not happened yet as
the people who have gotten
.sick from the virus have
caught it from infected birds.
People can catch it by being in
contaCitwith the -birds or from
surfaces contaminated %with
secretions or excretions from
sick birds.
Since 2003, there have been
192 cases of people sick with
H5N1 have been reported to
the World Health
Organization. Of those cases.
109 have resulted in death.
"It can be pretty serious
when humans get it, but
they're getting .it from the
birds," Holland said. "It's
rarely transmitted from human
to human. There's only been
one or two of those cases and
they're usually in a family and
'they were all exposed to
birds."
Still, influenza viruses have

While the military may have
him now, Redding said her
husband is her high school

After this deployment, her

April is Child
Abuse
Prevention
Month
Dear Editor:
'\'April is Child Abuse
Prevention Month. In Bradford
County alone, there have been
J.274 cases over the last year,
which involved abuse and/or
neglect of our children.
Youthful parents and
substance/alcohol abuse are
common denominators in
many of these cases. Children
are subjected to filthy, unsafe
environments, domestic
violence and sexual abuse,
which is all just the beginning
of a day for some.

Secondly, the commissioner
for Worthington Springs,. Red
Clyatt, stated at the last once-a-
month-meeting that he is in a
"do-nothing mood."
He should try to be more
like Wayne Smith. He's the
shaker and mover for the
county commission.
But alas, doing nothing will
get you just as far as doing
something. Take the lazy
route. Less stress.
Clyatt garners $24,000 per
annum of taxpayers' dollars to
sit one hour a month and do
nothing
What I have observed, is that
he has always done "nothing."
And he has tweaked it to an art
form.
That's $2,000 an hour of
taxpayer money to do
"nothing."
"Nothing" is not new.
"Nothing" has been that way
for as long as I have lived
here.
Just recalling the hurricane
devastation in Worthingtoi

and kids at school are relentless
in their effort to tease and
belittle. All the while they are
expected to make good grades
and behave properly. How can
these tender young minds
possibly bare this burden?
How do they deal with the pain
in their life? Who can they
trust? How do they begin to
explain their misery?
We must take a stance for
our children, meaning all
,children. We must set aside
our personal agendas for not
reporting or getting involved
when there is suspicion.
Educators, church leaders and
the general public must remove
the "blinders" to instances of
child abuse and neglect.

He did not stop and assess
the damage at the community
center, did not talk to residents.
He does what he does best,
"nothing."
I remember his campaign
slogan from the last election
"Keep up the progress."
What progress would that be,
Mr. Clyatt? Pandering to your
friends? Things are the same as
they were six years ago.
Actually. Mr. Clyatt is the
perfect commissioner for
Worthington Springs. He is
paired with a do-nothing city
council.
If speed .bumps are the big
issue here in Worthington
Springs, then they can
continue to have a harmonious
relationship and continue to do
"nothing" and without much
effort.
Way to go,. Mr. Clyatt, and
the city council of

Worthington?
Dear Editor:
DI began reading the article in
the Union County Times about
the speed bumps in
Worthington Springs.
The only way to ensure your
child's "safety" (in the big
metropolis of Worthington
Springs) is to get off of the
couch and watch your children.
I never knew speed bumps
could supervise children, thwart
the rampant drug abuse and the
escalating problem of teenage
pregnancy along with
keeping child molesters off the
roads ... Hmm imagine that.
If the anonymous resident is
worried about speeders in
Worthington Springs (on her
side street) why not show true
zeal for speed bumps on S.R.
121?
The speeders would be
forced to go slow while school
buses are picking up and

Preparation is important in the event of a pandemic


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Will the current strain of
avian influenza (H5NI) that is
spreading from Asia result in a
pandemic?

That is not known, but
Winnie Holland, administrator
of the Bradford and Union
County health departments,
said the majority of health
officials believe the virus will
eventually be transmitted from
human to human, which could
create a pandemic.
History suggests, however,


FLU
Continued from p. 1B

information available at the
World Health Organization
Web site, the H5NI virus
mutates rapidly. If the virus
changes so that it can be
transmitted from human to
human, a pandemic could
begin.
Currently, there is no
commercially available
vaccine to protect humans
against the virus.
"All of the scientists and the
experts-the majority of
them-seem to think there's a
very strong possibility that it
will change and it will be
transmitted to humans (from
humans)," Holland said.
"When it goes to human-to-
human transmission, that's
when it's very serious because
then it can spread very
rapidly."
People who have the H5NI
virus have displayed the
following symptoms: a high
fever that lasts for several
days, muscle aches, coughing
and shortness of breath.
"People get pretty sick with
this avian flu," Holland said,
"but remember, we've had no
cases in the United States
among animals or humans."

What's being done?
Agencies such as the World
Health Organization and the
Department of Health and
Human Services have been
monitoring the..situation an4_,
according td the Department'd"'
Health and Human Services
Centers for Disease Control.
and Prevention Web site,
research studies to test a
vaccine to protect humans
began in April 2005.-
The state of Florida has
sentinel physicians who will
report any unusual occurrences
to the Florida Department of
Health and the CDC. The
Florida DOH has increased its
laboratory facilities and staff in
order to have a more timely
diagnosis of avian flu if such a
case should occur.
The Florida DOH is also
providing continuing education
to emergency medical services
personnel, hospital staff and
private physicians.,
"I think the most important
thing to know is that it's being
monitored very closely, both
animal cases and the human
cases," Holland said. "When
they have a, case, they do an
investigation.
"They'll know when it
becomes human-to-human


that a pandemic will eventually
occur. It is anticipated that
three or four pandemics will
occur every century. 1,
Panic is not the answer in
the event of a pandemic. No,
when it comes to looking at the
eventuality of an influenza
pandemic, it is no different
from any other emergency
situation. The key is to prepare.
"It's like when we prepare
for hurricane season and we
remind people about having
water and those kinds of
things," Holland said.
Indeed, the Web site
www.pandemicflu.gov


(transmitted) and respond
accordingly to isolate the
disease in an area. A lot of it's
going to depend upon where it
initially occurred as far as how
well they're able to isolate it."
Members of the general
population can do their part as
well. If someone living in this
area finds a dead wild bird,
they should report it to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission by
calling (850) 488-4676. Do not
handle the bird.
If someone owns chickens
and several of them die
unexpectedly, they should call
the Department of Agriculture
at (850) 510-0900 (it should be
noted it is still safe, to eat
chicken provided it is cooked
thoroughly and proper
handling instructions are
followed).
People should stock up on
supplies in the event of a
pandemic, much as they would
in preparation for hurricane
season;- Holland .said (see
related story for more on
making preparations).
"You need to make sure you
have enough supplies and
things because a lot of people
will get sick if this happens,"
Holland said. "A lot of people
will get sick. That's going to
interrupt our normal day-to-
day process.
"The other thing is having
all of the public and private
agencies working together on a
plan. We've done that on the
national level. They're
updating the plan all the time.
They're frequently revising it
and updating it.
"I really think preparation is
the key to everything."
Also, people should do what
they're supposed to do during
any case of illness: avoid
others (stay home from work
and school), cover your mouth
and nose when coughing or
sneezing and washing your
hands frequently with soap and
water.
"Washing your hands is the
best way to prevent influenza
of any type," Holland said.
. It is also a good idea for
people to stay informed,
whether it's pa) ing attention to
the media .or visiting Web sites
such as those of the World
Health Organization
(www.who.int) and the
Department of Health and
Human Services Centers for
Disease Control and'
Prevention (www.bt.cdc.gov).
"Just be aware of it and
don't take it lightly," Holland
said. "Take it seriously and
recognize. if it occurs, it's
going to impact all of us."


suggests having a supply of
water on hand because during
a pandemic, it may be
impossible to get to a store or
stores may be out of supplies.
In the case of a pandemic,
everyday services, such as
those provided by stores and
other businesses, banks,
restaurants, government
offices and even hospitals,
could be interrupted. Schools
may be closed and people may
find themselves not able to go
to work.
It is suggested that, in
preparing for a pandemic, you
make sure you have
prescription medications and
other health supplies on hand
and consider how to care for
those in your family who have
special needs. Prepare for a
possible reduction or loss of
income and plan on having


activities available to keep
children entertained.
Suggested items to keep in
supply for an extended stay at
home include:
* Ready-to-eat canned meats,
fruits, vegetables and soups
* Protein or fruit bars
* Dry cereal or granola
* Peanut butter or nuts
* Dried fruit
* Crackers
* Canned juices
* Bottled water
* Canned or jarred baby food
and formula
* Pet food
* Prescribed medical supplies
* Soap or alcohol-based hand
wash
* Medicines for fever, such as
acetaminophen or ibuprofen
* Thermometer
* Anti-diarrheal medication
* Vitamins

occurred in 1968-69. It was the
least serious of the three that
occurred in the last century,
with 700,000 deaths

deaths in the U.S. The other
two occurred in 1918-19 (40
million deaths and at least
500,000 deaths in the U.S.)

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford High School -
High Q is headed off again to
test their knowledge against
other schools throughout the
state.
Held today, Thursday, April
27 to -Friday, April 29, at
Disney World in Orlando, the
competition allows the BHS
team to compete against
schools of their own size. In
the North Florida High Q
Conference Delta Division
Tournament held in
November, BHS was paired
against larger and more
academically intense schools.
Also unlike districts, the
state team may be comprised
of varsity or junior varsity
members.
In order to prepare for state,
the High Q team held their
annual practice matches
.against members of the BHS
faculty (April 1 1) and
members of the community
(April 20).
In the community match-up,
there were four teams, which
tailled more than 12 people
.competing against the BHS

Coach Ronney Harris, with
assistants Adrian McClain and
Trixie Upton, read questions
and explained the game to
participants.

round two and being credited
15 points, because the
announcer misread a question
in round three. They beat the
BHS High Q team 148 to 138.
The High Q team began


preparing for state after
returning from Christmas
break, and they hope their
preparation will pay off at
state.


Hey, Pastor Hutcherson, what'd you get for number three? In a normal
classroom, this would be considered cheating, but in High 0Q, it's part of
the game that members of the same team can check with each other for
answers, as Pastor Bill Nicol (right) is doing with Pastor Mike
Hutcherson.

These may seem like pretty

Brooker woman to become


fascinated with butterflies.
And before long, Edith
Smith was mixing things up to
create a full-fledged butterfly
farm.
Smith, who owns Shady Oak
Butterfly Farm with her
husband, Stephen, tried to
learn everything about
butterflies that she could after
seeing a butterfly on a fennel


Chowing down on milkweed, these caterpillars
go through a metamorphosis to become
monarch butterflies. This type of caterpillar
responds to sound as a caterpillar and in the
pupae stage.


The Smiths' daughter, Ester, who also works
at the farm, releases a butterfly from a
graduation release box.

The Starke natives used to
grow herbs at their farm just
outside of Brooker, but they
moved into butterfly farming
after Smith became more and
more fascinated with the
creatures in her garden.
The greenhouses on their
farm now house up to 30
species of butterflies in various
stages of development, plants
used to feed them and the
"apartments" used to house
them.
Smith's butterflies are
grown in different buildings.
Each building or room is used
for the different stages of a
caterpillar's life cycle.
Caterpillars are considered
"plant pests" by the USDA, so
they cannot be shipped over
state lines without being raised
in a laboratory.
One room in the lab had a
painted lady being fed soybean
paste. Another held the actual
butterfly emerging from the
chrysalis (with various stages
in between).'
With the separate rooms,
Stephen said, "You can break
the cycle (of disease)," but it
does makes life a little more,
complicated as a butterfly
farmer.
Gloves have to be worn
when feeding or touching the
caterpillars and even when
handling the food itself.
Microscopes are used to check
for diseases.
"You have to be cautious as
a breeder," Edith said.
Hand rinsing is constantly
done in bleach water.
Caterpillar chrysalises even
take a turn in the bleach bath..
However, this doesn't harm
them, Smith said.

Butterflies bring
beauty and myths
Smith has not only found the
beauty in butterflies through
the past six years, but has
transformed this into a
business where education
plays an important role.
In teaching seminars or
lessons on how to create a
successful butterfly garden,
Smith tells many myths about
butterflies.
A myth every elementary
school, child has pcobatb j\
fi'earTis'about boc6of "'""'...
.Caterpillars don't -.form .
cocoons, Smith said..
"They form chrysalises."
Some insects form
chrysalises and then protect
that with a cocoon, so if it is
removed from the cocoon, it
can still -survive. The
caterpillar will die if removed
from its chrysalis.
Another. myth is that
butterflies are pretty and
delicate.
Butterflies eat maggots,
rotting fruit, feces and other.

unappetizing things, Smith
said. As for delicate, she said,
they make long migrations,
can even survive dangerous
storms and live weeks to
months, not days.
And despite popular belief, a
butterfly can fly without its
scales (colored part of wings).
Upon human touch, the scales
can be removed with no pain

to the butterfly.
"If you're gentle, you don't
hurt them at all," Smith said.
The result is a useable, but
less attractive wing.

The business of
butterflies
Smith has used a trial-and-
error method at Shady Oak.
Plants and butterflies were lost
in this process, but what she
didn't know about butterflies
when she started, she now
knows and is continuing to
learn every day.
And because Shady Oak is a
"family farm," there are
always plenty of her own
children and grandchildren
around to learn with her in the
lab and in the garden.
It is not unusual to see a
child playing in the garden
with a toy truck or trying to
catch a butterfly to help out
grandma.
Johnathan Tomlinson, one
of Smith's grandsons, already
can name half a dozen or so
species of butterflies, and he
knows how to collect them too.
Several of Smith's children
help collect, package and farm
the butterflies at the farm. Her
daughter, Ester, has a job
ranging from bookkeeping to
answering phones to feeding
caterpillars.
Anyone in the, community is"
welcome to take a tour of the
working farm, Smith said,,

walk-up tour (prices vary and --

Smith gives talks about

She also makes and sells her

butterflies, they then have to
be packed for shipment in
cardboard boxes with
Styrofoam and an ice pack.
This keeps them alive during
shipment.
Part of this shipment
includes not only paying
customers but free butterflies,
as well. Shady Oak donates 12
butterflies a week to families
who have been touched with
tragedy or death.
Not interested in the real
thing?
Shady Oak has notecards,
books, nets, and almost
anything else you can imagine
relating to butterflies. Smith
even sells silver jewelry made
with wings of naturally
deceased butterflies.
"We've found our
imagination is our limit," she
said.

Smith teaches
metamorphosis of
a thriving garden
Smith's outside butterfly
gardens on the farm can
always be enjoyed for free.
She has seen approximately
5,000-10,000 butterflies in the
garden. At a butterfly farm,
this would seem like a given,
but Smith said all of these have
appeared naturally. They were
not placed there for the
visitors' benefit.
This is one main reason she
likes to educate people on how
to successfully enhance their
own butterfly gardens.
For example, milkweed
plants are the host plant for the
monarch butterfly.
"If all the milkweed died, all
the Monarchs would die,"
Smith said.
The host plant is what can
change a normal garden from
just a place for butterflies to
visit to their whole world, she
said. The animals may have a
fleeting attraction to a person's
brightly-colored nectar plants,
but the host plant will keep
them coming back.
Another successful hint for
butterfly gardening is to put
out something sweet.
"They love fruit feeders,"
Smith said. Fruit punch
Gatorade is even a favorite'in
her garden.
Smith said not to listen to
national books and magazines
about what to do to attract
butterflies. These often do not
sa.' what will specifically grow
in this region of Florida or give
general species information.
"Go to a nursery and see
what plants the butterflies are
on," she said.
Garden plans, plant lists and
even milkweed clippings (in
May/June) are given out for
free, while supplies last.
This supply usually includes
"thousands and thousands of
plants," which will get up to


10,000 this year, just to feed
the caterpillars.
Smith does what she can to
inform people about butterflies
because she enjoys watching
the metamorphosis over and
over again.
"It's kind of like being paid
for your favorite hobby."
One unique thing about
Smith's hobby is that out of
the several hundred butterfly
farmers in the county, Shady
Oak Butterfly Farm recently
attracted the attention of
Country Woman magazine
editor Ann Kaiser, who did an
article on the farm for its
April/May issue.
But unlike the magazine
readers who will wonder when
they see a delivery truck if it
carries Shady Oak butterflies,
local residents can visit the
farm in person at 12876 S.W.
C.R. 231.
From Starke, this is South

County has special place in BHS administrator's heart


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
They say home is where the
heart is.
If that's the case, then
Earnest Williams feels quite at
home in his office at Bradford
High School, where he is in his
second year as an assistant
principal.
Williams, who previously
worked at Howard Bishop
Middle School in Gainesville,
said as soon as he underwent
his initial interview for the job,
he felt the county "grip" a.
small part of his heart.
The county grabbed a little
bit of his heart each time he
came back, culminating in his
third *trip to the county to
interview with Superintendent
Harry Hatcher.
"By that time, my heart was
just completely engrossed with
wanting to be here and to work.
I---re -oldTMlr. Hatcher I
wanted to be here and he better
not give anybody else that
job," Williams said with a
laugh.
"This is where I want to be
now."
What struck Williams, a
Gainesville resident, about
Bradford County and the
school system was the way he
felt welcomed with open arms..
"It is exceedingly wonderful
that anyone would reach out to
me and give me an
opportunity, embrace me,
make me feel wanted and
needed, and respect me and
what I have to offer," Williams
said.
Williams was not looking
for an administrative job when
he first interviewed for a
vacant position in Bradford.
He was working as a dean at
Howard Bishop. Middle
School, though the principal
did give him a certain number
of administrative
responsibilities.
Then Williams got a phone
call from Ulysses Woods, an
employee in the Bradford
school system. Williams and
Woods had worked together
previously at the Gainesville
Job Corps Center. Woods
asked Williams if he would be
interested in applying for a job
in Bradford County.
Williams is now glad he
listened to Woods and applied
for the job.
... I-lo e ir." W illiams said.
....'That has not changed inm the
two years that I've been here."


A roundabout way in
settling on a career
Williams laughs when asked
about what steered himninto
education, saying it was by
default.
What he dreamed of
becoming when he was
growing up was an FBI agent,
but when it came time to go to
college, Williams looked at his
three siblings and decided
upon a major by a process of
elimination. His sister was
going to accounting school and
his two brothers were studying
medicine and law.
"I decided that the only
profession that was left was
dentistry," Williams said. "I
went to Florida A&M
University to be a dentist.
When I got there, I was
making what you would call
average grades, and I was
unhappy, very unhappy with
the profession."
Williams began thinking
about what subjects he enjoyed
the most when he was in high
school. Those sulijects were
geography and history-in that
order.
A college counselor told
Williams that he could not
major in geography, but he
could major in history and
minor in geography. His
options as a history major were
to teach or to work in a
museum.
"I've always liked museums,
artifacts and things of that
nature, so I aspired at that time
to pursue that," Williams said.
The opportunity to work in a
museum did not present itself,
so Williams, needing to find a
job, started working at the
Gainesville Job Corps Center
as a teacher in 1979. He also
worked as an education
manager there, a position he
equated to being the principal
at Bradford High School.
"It was during that time I
discovered how much I loved
kids and how much I liked
working with kids and seeing
them succeed," Williams said.
Williams worked at the
center until 1991, then took a
job at New Pathways Horizon
Center (alternative school) in
Gainesville. He worked there
until 2002, then became the
dean of students at Howard
Bishop.
Things were working out
+' ell for someone who planned
on being a dentist when he first
entered college. Williams
admits he was frustrated at

Earnest
Williams is
wrapping up
his second
year as an
assistant
principal at
Bradford High
School.


times in school and sometimes
he thought of giving up.
That, however, was not an
option as far as his mother,
Eula Williams, was concerned.
Williams' mother always
stressed education and pushed
her children to go to college.
When Williams wanted to
return home from his' studies,
he said his mother would tell
him his academic skills were
so much better than hers and
that he needed to put them to
use.
Besides, it's hard to argue
with mom when she's going to
college at the same time you
are.
Williams' mother did not
finish high school when she
became pregnant in 10th grade.
However, she returned to
school and earned her diploma;
then enrolled at the University
of Florida around the same
time Williams enrolled at
Florida A&M.
His mother was in her late
50s at the time.
"When I wanted to give up,
she just did not accept that as
an option and would not allow
me to," Williams said.

Family man
Williams said he used to be
involved in sports during his
free time, but as he's gotten
older that has changed.
What hasn't changed is his
desire 'to spend -timewith his'
family.:
i Wi-lijams antchis wif&,Janett',
have four children-Micah,-
Marion, Marcus and
Michelle-and they are very
close.
"We just spend a lot of time
together," Williams said.
"They mean a lot to me. I am a
father who is really into the
life of his children."
Like Williams and his
siblings, three of his children
are already working their way
toward, or have already
earned, college degrees. Micah
is a University of Florida
graduate and will graduate
from Florida A&M April 30
.with an MBA. Marion is
attending the University of
North Florida and Michelle is
at Santa Fe, preparing to
transfer 'to UF -on a full
scholarship.
Williams also has someofi'
else other than his children to
keep his interest-a grandson.
Darien Conley, who is 8
months old, is Michelle's son


and Willihms said that outside
of work, approximately 65
percent of his time is taken up
with his grandson.
"To be honest with you, I
did not know I could love so
much," Williams said.
"Someone said that we should
have grandchildren first. I
think they might be right."

The future

third year at BHS, Williams

reflects on the challenges he
and the other administrators
are facing. One of those
challenges is raising the
school's state-assigned grade
from a D, which it earned last
year.
Williams said the school has
instittited a reading program
and has .a very good reading
coach.
"Our actual reading gains in
the classroom have increased
this year," Williams said. "The
students, their grades are
higher."
Also, Williams is
participating in training
.programs through the
Northeast Florida Educational'
Consortium, such as a


leadership academy he is
currently attending.
Such training will help
Williams as he continues to
grow as an administrator and,
as a result, benefit the
Bradford County school
system.
"I look forward to being
here next year," Williams said.
"I was offered positions at
different places. I turned them
down.
"Right now, my heart is
here. That hasn't changed. It
has been here since day one. I
really would like to see this
community, this school
become one of the trophy
districts in the state of
Florida."

Tornadoes ride Brown

to 2-0 quarterfinal win


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer-
Antwan Brown pitched a
complete-game shutout,
allowing just four hits to help
the Bradford baseball team
defeat Middleburg 2-0 in the
District 3-4A quarterfinals on
April 24 in Glen St. Mary and
advance to the semifinals.
Brown, who struck out 11
batters, was only in trouble
twice during the game.
In the top of the fourth, he
allowed a triple, but that came
with two outs. He forced the
next batter to ground out to
shortstop Cory Elasik.
Middleburg threatened in the
seventh with runners on first
and second with one out.
Brown would record two
straight strikeouts, leaving the
final batter of the inning
looking as the Tornadoes (9-14
prior to. April 26) wrapped up
the win. ,
Brown also went 3-for-3 at
the plate as the Tornadoes
collected nine hits as a team.
Jeremy Pomibier and ;Cole
Rhoden, who were each 2-for-
3, put the Tornadoes on the
board early. Pombier led off,
the first with a single and later.
.-scored when Rhoden doubled


the first pitch he saw into left-
center field.
The Tornadoes' second run
occurred in, the fifth. Pombier
reached on an error and moved
to third when King bunted
safely. Trey Winkler then
walked to load the bases with
one out.
Pombier scored when
William Estes singled, but that
was the only run Bradford
could manage after
Middleburg turned a double
play.
Bradford, the tournament's
third seed, played second seed


Santa Fe in a semifinal game
April 26. The winner of that
game will play for the
championship against either
top seed Suwannee or host
school Baker County Friday,
April 28; at 7 p.m.
If the Tornadoes advance to
the' championship game, they
will play in the first round of
the regional playoffs, which
begin Tuesday, May 2, at 7:30
p.m. Bradford would host that
game if it wins its district or
travel if it finishes as district
runner-up.

Keystone wins district championship in softball


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
MaryAnne McCall kept the
Interlachen offense at bay
while Keystone Heights'
offense did just enough, helped
by a three-run home run by
Kasey Fagan, to propel the
Indians to a 5-1 win and the
District 7-3A softball
championship April 20 in Lake
Butler.
McCall won her second
game of the tournament. After
allowing just one hit to Union
County in the semifinals, she
gave up four hits to Interlachen
and struck out 10.
The only run McCall
allowed came in the sixth. She
walked Interlachen's Jessica
Jordan, who later scored on a
single by Jelyn Sheeks.
Sheeks had two of the
Rams' hits.
Interlachen threatened to
score in the third, putting two
runners on with two outs after
back-to-back singles. McCall,
however, ended the inning
with a strikeout.

Keystone's offense managed
eight hits against two
Interlachen pitchers. Three of
those hits were by Kellie
Spaulding, who was perfect at
the plate and had an RBI.
.:Spaulding drove in the
game's first run in the first
inning. Michelle Houser
bunted safely to lead off the
inning and moved to second on
a sacrifice bunt by Sam Sibley.
Spaulding then hit a single to
score Houser.


Spaulding also had one of
the Indians' two extra-base hits
with a double to lead off the
fifth. She eventually scored on
a single by Dani Suit that put
the Indians up 5-0.
In between those first and
last runs, Keystone pushed
three runs across in the third.
Sibley drew a walk and
Spaulding singled before
Fagan launched a shot over the
fence in left-center field for
her fourth home run of the
season.

2 players drive in 7
runs in win over UC
Keystone advanced to the
district championship game by
defeating Union County 15-0
in five innings on April 18.
That game saw Tori Jolley
drive in four runs and Sibley
drive in another three, while
McCall threw a one-hitter,
striking out nine.
Sibley drove in the first of
her runs in the first inning
when she tripled, scoring
Houser. Sibley then scored on
a sacrifice fly by Karlyn
Reddish.
The Indians pushed two
more runs across in the first.
Suit doubled and Kim Russell
singled, with Suit scoring on a
Union error. Jolley then
singled to score Russell.
In the second, Keystone
increased its lead to 6-0.
Houser, Sibley, Reddish and
Suit all singled, with Houser
scoring on the hit by Reddish
and Sibley scoring on Suit's
hit.


The Keystone Heights softball team poses with the Altman, Noel Bartley, Tori Jolley, Kim Russell, Kellie
District 7-3A championship trophy after its 5-1 win over Spaulding, Megan Poupard, Michelle Houser, Ryan

Karlyn Reddish, MaryAnne McCall, Donna Richardson, Ollie Powell and Kathy Smith. Not pictured:

Sibley doubled in the third,
which scored both Story and
Houser, each of whom singled.
An error scored Sibley and
Reddish scored on a single by
Suit.
That put the Indians up 10-0,
but they weren't done in the


inning. Jolley drove in three
runs with a double, then scored
herself on a single by Houser.


Keystone's last run occurred
in the fourth when Becca
Heavrin, who walked and


advanced to second on a
passed ball, scored on a single
by Spaulding.
