UCSO pursuit ends in Baker County with fatalitvY


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
Por the second time in 2006,
a vehicle pursuit by deputies
from the Union County
Sheriffs Office has ended with
the death of a suspect.
Belvin McNeal, 52, of
Lawtey died when the car he
was riding in slammed into the
back of a tractor-trailer. Stacey
Bailey, 24, of Starke was


driving the 2002 Mitsubishi
McNeal was a passenger in.
According to Capt. Gary
Seay, Union County deputies
began the pursuit after
receiving a call from the
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office.
"They called us and said the
car was traveling at a high rate
of speed," Seay said. "Our
deputies spotted the vehicle
and attempted to stop it."


According to Major Danny
Pearson of Bradford County,
its deputies clocked the car
doing 75 mph in a 60 mph
zone.
"Two deputies were doing
stationary speed enforcement a
few miles west of Starke on
S.R. 100," Pearson said. "The
car was clocked doing 75 mph
ih a 60 mph zone. Deputies
attempted to stop the car, but it
sped up. After losing sight of


the vehicle, they called off the
pursuit and notified Union
County."
Seay said Deputy Mindy
Goodwin picked up the car just
after it crossed the county line
on S.R. 100. She attempted to
stop the vehicle at which time
it sped up once again. The
vehicle turned north on S.R.
121 where Sgt. Ray Shuford
picked up, the pursuit with
Goodwin.


He said both deputies
reported the car went around
three tractor-trailers on the
right-hand side during the
pursuit. Seeing the manner in
which the driver was
attempting to elude, law
enforcement, Seay said the
deputies backed off, but still
kept the car in sight.
"We had decided to tell the
deputies to discontinue the


pursuit when Baker County
called and said they had stop
sticks deployed," Seay said.
He said with the chance to
stop the dangerous driver, who
at times was traveling more
than 120mph, it was decided
the deputies would continue to
follow the vehicle in hopes it
would hit the stop sticks.

Voters can

cast ballots

early

BY JAMES REDMOND'
Times Staff Writer
The Union County
Supervisor of Elections is
asking voters that won't be in
town Sept. 5 or just wish to
avoid the lines at the polls to
vote early.
Barbara "Babs" Montpetit
said she hope many people will
take advantage of the chance to
make their voice heard.
"We are conducting this
process to give everyone an
opportunity to vote," Montpetit
said. "The state wants every
registered voter to have the
opportunity to cast their
ballot."
Because of the county's size
and population, Montpetit will
offer only one place to cast
ballots early-the supervisor
of elections office. While some
might feel only having one
polling place has --Its.-
drawbacks. Montpetit said it is
the perfect place.
"If you forget your voter
registration card, we can look
up your name and issue you
one right: on the spot."
Montpetit said'. "This would
.avoid a ballot possibly not
being counted."
She pointed out that those
voters who do not have a.
voter's registration card when
they go to their normal polling
place will have to cast a
provisional ballot. Instances
have come up..were a otherss
registration could not be
verified and the ballot \\as not
counted.
"B) voting early, and at our
office, you void' .all these
. problems." Montpetit said.
And you don't have to wait in

Commission

gives

employees 5

percent

BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
County commissioners found
a way to give the county's
employees a 5 percent-raise
during a budget workshop on
Aug. 21:
The workshop 'began with
Chairman Wayne Smith
explaining the proposed
budget, which was presented to
commissioners Aug. 3, had
changed in a few areas.
"Vehicle liability insurance
will cost us more this year,"
Smith said. "Overall, it will
.cost an extra $9,000."
He also-E..iplained, that he had
learned the cost of the county's
health insurance would
increase. According to Smith,
the first figure the county
received-from its insurance
company pushed costs.up $72
per month per employee. After
negotiating the sum, it came
downfi.; '
"But we're not sure if it will
be $400 a month or $410,"
Smith said. "We are still trying
to get an exact figure".... .
Smith said because of the
increase, the budget- was
reworked to cover the $400 a
month figure. Previously the
county only paid $350 of an
employees health insurance
premium.: He, told'his fellow
commissioners that if the cost
was. any higher, the employees
would be responsible for the
difference.
The commission than began
discussing the issue of finding
enotigh money to give
employees a 5 percent raise,
rather than the 3 percent one
already included in the budget.

UCSO
Continued from p. 1A

A stop stick is a device usea
bi law\' enforcement officers to
flatten the tires of a vehicle.
The device is a strip of large
needle like objects. The metal
devices puncture a vehicle's
tires. The theory behind the
device is that a suspect can not
drive on flat tires.
According to Seay, the
vehicle went into Baker
County'with UCSO deputies
still following at a safe
distance. Three miles south of
1-10, Baker County deputies
had the device deployed. Just
before reaching the stop sticks,
Bailey made a U-turn,
according to Seay.
t'6w headed south on S.R.
121, Bailey was still eluding
capture. Sgt. Shuford had
stopped a large tanker truck
carrying fuel. According to
Seay, his intent was to get the
truck out of harm's way.
"He was trying to get the
truck off the road and out of
the way of the oncoming
pursuit," Seay said. "But a
truck that size can not just
simply pull off the road."
He said with the truek.
stopped in the middle of the
travel lane, Bailey lost control
and hit it in the rear.
According to the accident
report from the Florida
Highway Patrol, McNeal was
pronounced dead at the scene
by Baker County emergency
medical services. Bailey was
'airlifted to Shands
Jacksonville. The report states
neither occupant was wearing
a seatbelt.
This is the second time this
year a chase by Union County
deputies has ended in a
fatality. On Jan. 14, two people
were killed when the driver of
the vehicle attempted to elude
capture.
Bobby Todd, 45, of Lake
Butler and passenger Robert
Flanagan, 49, of Cincinnati
were killed when the truck
the\ %ere in hit a Union
CoutnN patrol car. Todd was
attempting to flee from Deputy
Ken Smith %hen he rammed
Deputy James "Eddie" Lee's
patrol car. Lee was attempting
to cut off Todd %"hen the
collision occurred.
The collision sparked a fire
that killed Todd and Flanagan.
Smith had to pull-Lee from the
patrol car he "%as trapped in.
Smith has been recognized on
two occasions and %%ill be once
more at a state awards banquet
later this )ear.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead said,
in both cases, deputies were
following the department's
protocol inm olh ing chases.
"In each of these cases, these
individuals were being pursued
because our deputies felt they
%were a danger to the
community," Whitehead said.
"If the) didn't, our deputies
would not be pursuing them."
FHP spokesperson Lt. Bill
Leeper said the department
will in estigate the crash.
_"Charges against Baile\ are
pending the outcome of blood
draw n at the hospital." Leeper
said. "It %will take several
weeks to recei% e those results."

EMS sees largest percentage

increase of any department


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer


The Utnion County
emergency medical services
department will see the largest
percentage increase in its
budget of any county
department for the 2006-07
fiscal year.
The 15 percent increase
amounts to more than
$120,000 for the next fiscal
year. According to the budget
numbers, the largest increase
on the revenue side will come
from a larger transfer from the
solid wast6 department. EMS
will get $75,693 more than this
year. A $28,202 increase in a
transfer from a general fund
special account makes up the
second largest amount.
The rest of the increase
comes from other areas in
much smaller amounts. Special
assessment will- account for
$190,000 of the $820,541 the
department is estimating in
revenue. Receivables (wvhatthe
.department-co1lects from the
patients it serves) will account
for $268,000 in the next fiscal
year. It is an increase of
$8,000.
Another $5,000 will come
from a line item entitled state
income. This line accounts for
the money the county receives
for transferring state prisoners
from the Reception and
Medical Center to Jacksonville
Memorial Hospital. According
to EMS Director Allen Parrish,
each transfer averages $800.
On the expenses side of the
budget, the department's
revenue has a variety of areas
it goes out to. The largest area,
as with every other county
department, is in employee
salaries. Salaries for full time


employees will use $325,812
of the department's budget.
Part-time employees will cost
another $53,000.
Parrish's salary, which had
been the subject of much
controversy earlier in the year,
shows an increase of more than
$8,500 over last year. While
the numbers show an increase,
Parrish told the commissioners
in January he was actually
taking a p0r. cut.
He had asked the
commission to change his
schedule and pay scale. At the
time, Parrish was being paid
by the lumberr of 'hours-
worked. By working a regular'
shift every third day, he was
racking up 180-200 hours each
pay week. The $47,740 salary
shown for Parrish was costing
the county more than $70,000
a year.
After months of negotiating
Parrish and the board finally
settled on the director working
a 45-hour work week. They
also agreed to a $55,000 a year
salary. Both sides agreed he
would receive no overtime
regardless of the number of
hours worked.
The second largest area, in
terms of expense for the
department, is paying for the
things that go with having
employees. Payroll taxes,
retirement contributions, health
insurance and worker's
compensation will use more
than $175,000 of the budget.
Medical supplies will eat up
the third largest portion of the
budget. Estimated at $50,000,
this expense pays for
bandages, medications and
other items' used in the
treatment of patients. That
figure is down $24,000 from
this year's budget.


The line item for medical
director, the doctor who's
license the deaprtment operates
under. This is due to a.
consolidation. This year the
item shows the cost to be
$5,000. Next year's budget will
use $35,000 of the
department's revenue for the
same area. The fourth largest
expense in the budget now
gives the medical director
$10,000. It also includes what
are listed as contractual
expenses of $25,000. It is not
defined as to what these
contracts are for.
With the rise in cost in fuel,
so to does the department's
gas, oil and lubricants line.
This year the county budgeted
$15,000 for the items. Next
year the county estimates it
will spend an additional $9,000
for the same area. Repair and
maintenance, the fifth largest
expense in the budget, is
estimated at $20,000. This is
the same amount as this year.
It is possible this item could.
come in under budget
estimates. Last month the
county approved the
acceptance of a grant that will -
help purchase a new rescue
unit. Currently. EMS' has three
units, two -6f which are more
than five years old. One of the
units, 1994 model, is used only
as a backup unit. The other is a
unit built in 2000. The third
unit was bought with grant
money in 2004.
The rest of the department's
estimated expenses look like
those of any other county
department. They include:
o Utilities, $7,000.
o Vehicle insurance, $5,500.
o Office supplies, $2,500.
o Training, $3,000.
Operating supplies, $6,000.
o Postage, $900.

Brown said her goal is to
raise $50,000 from the project.
The library began fund-
raising for the new facility at
the same time it submitted a
grant application to the state
for funding last year. If
approved, the grant would
prayide the county $500,000
toward the new facility.
In February 2005, the county
hired a consulting firm to help
draft the grant. It was then
submitted to the state library
board who announced grant
awards in April 2006. Brown
said that she has heard good
news about the funding.
"We learned earlier this year
that the board had awarded the
county a $500,000 grant to
help with the new facility,"
Brown said. "We are now
attempting to raise the
remaining money it will take to
build the facility."
The formula set forth by the
state suggests that a county
have 0.6 square feet of library
space for every resident in the
county. With more than 14,000
residents, the current library
facility is only one-third the
size is should be.
"What we're looking to do,
depending on funding, is build
a library that is 10,000-15,000
square feet," Brown said. "But
even then our facility's space
will all be used up."
Brown said between meeting
space, offices for library
'personnel and. collection
storage, the new facility Will
fill up quickly.
"What we want is room to
hold our programs that' won't
require us to go off site, as
well as have space for
personnel to work," Brown
said. "
By all estimates, the grant
will be just under half of what
the county will need to build
the new library.
"The rest is going to have to


c'ome from us," Brown said.
"Though it seems like aI large
amount of money, I'm
committed to doing whatever it
takes to raise the necessary
funds."
One place Brown said a
substantial amount of the
funding will come from will be
the sale of the library's current
facility. While Bro\,n does not
have a solid figure. Depending
on the time it goes up for sale,
she expects the building to
bring in between $200,000 to
$250,000.
If you would like more
information about the project,
or want to donate, you can call
the library at (386) 496-3432.

Other county dept. budgets not

up significantly


The Union County Office of
Emergency Management
budget will be down by more
than 10 percent from this year's
budget.
Numbers show that this year
the department received
$176,429 in funding. It is
estimated for next year that
same funding will be
$152,171. According to
Finance Director Donna
Jackson, the loss is because of
one item.
"Emergency Management is
not getting a domestic security
grant like it did this year,"
Jackson said. "That is the only
reason for the decline."
The numbers show that the
county raised its commitment
to the department by more than
$5,000. According to Jackson;
the county is only required to
match 10 percent of what the
federal government sends, but
goes above that to make the
budget balance. Federal ,
funding, which is the
department's major source of
funding, is only up by $3 over
this year.
Even with 'just two revenue
sources from which to draw,
the department still has a
multitude of line items in
which the revenue 'is
distributed. Employee salaries
once again tops the list of
money going out. Director
Doug York will make $45,088
during the next fiscal year. His
assistant, John Walker, is
slated to earn $31,285. Payroll
taxes, retirement, 'health
insurance and worker's
compensation total more
than $30,000.
One of the larger items for
the department in next year's
budget is communications.
While it will take $7,000 to
pay for the services next year,
that figure was $8,000 this
year. Repair and maintenance
for the department's two
buildings and office supplies
will use $5,000 each.
Fuel is estimated at $4,500.

This is the third largest
expense the department is
looking at. Utilities at $2,800
is the fourth. York also has
$2,687 in capital outlay in the
budget. It does not specify

Library budget
increase is
misleading
The Union County Public
Library's budget is showing a
near four-fold increase over
this year, but the numbers are
very misleading. More than 95
percent of the $530,593
increase is the $500,000 state
grant the county received to
build a new library.
Last year the county hired
consultants to apply for the
funding. The group gathered
information and submitted a
grant proposal to the state
library association. According
to Library Director Mary
Brown, the move was in hopes
of getting grant funding in the
future.
"It's very unusual to have a
grant funded'the first year it's
presented," Brown said. "We
were lucky enough to have it
happen and are on our way to a
new, facility."
The true increase in the
library's budget, $30,593, is a
13 percent increase over this
years'. The. half-mill ad
valorem tax, which is up for
renewal during .the Sept. 5
primary election, will bring the
library $96,117. Funding from
the state aid to libraries area
will account for another
$95,683. In total, the library

will have $235,900 in which to
operate next year.
Because of the way the
library brings in revenue, the
way it is expended is slightly
different from other county
departments. In the budget,
Jackson has broken down what
expenses are paid by Union
County money and which ones
are paid using state funding.
The largest portion of local
revenue is used to pay Brown's
salary. She will receive
$31,779. Part of the salaries for
library employees is also paid
by local money. The county
will use $20,894 from local
funding and $53,232 from state
funding to pay library staff.
Payroll taxes and retirement
contributions are split between
the two funds.
Another large expense in the
library's budget is that of books
and publications. The library
will spend $25,000 to keep
subscriptions updated and to
but new books. This money is
taken from the state's portion
of revenue. Also taken from
the state side is a contingency
fund of $11,409. An additional
$9,202 will be taken from the
local side.

Building dept.
budget up
The Union County building
department will see a 9 percent
increase, in its budget for the
next fiscal year. Budget
numbers show the county
expects to collect $25,000
more than it did this year in
building permit fees.
From its-overall $110,225
budget, the county will pay out
$70,486 in salaries .and
benefits. The second largest
portion is slated for
contingencies. Fees to the
North Florida Regional
Planning Council rounded out
the top three at $6,000.

order to accomplish the raise.
ilhe board would need to find a
way to get $34.00()()0 from other
places.
Different ideas \\cre thrown
out as to where exactly the
money would come from.
Commissioner Karen Cossey
suggested the board ask
department heads to go back
and cut their budgets as much
as possible.
"Many 'of the departments
have already done that," said
Finance Director Donna
Jackson. "To ask them to cut
any more will just require us to
make up for it at the end of the
budget year."
Commissioner Morris Dobbs
asked why the county could
not take it out of the $804,000
it received in grant money
from the state. Smith explained
that money had already been
allocated throughout the
budget and was needed to
make sure it was balanced.
Smith suggested that if the
other commissioners were
adamant about giving the
employees a 5 percent raise,
that the money be taken from
the general fund's contingency
line.
"I don't care where it comes
from as long as we get these
guys 5 percent," said Dobbs
looking at seven road
department employees that
were sitting in the audience.
The other commissioners
agreed and Smith said he
would change the budget to
reflect the wishes of the board.
The issue of raises came up
even before the board had the
proposed budget for the 2006-
07 fiscal year. During the
commission's July meeting,
Dobbs asked Smith how much
of a raise was in the budget for
employees. Smith explained
that 3 percent raise was as
good as the county could do.
*"Every employee across the
board gets a 3 percent raise?"
Dobbs asked.
Smith revealed that one
employee, Gail Thornton
secretary for the emergency
medical services department,
had asked for a 5 percent raise
and he promised her he would
give,:it ,to..her. ,NNone ipf the,
other oommiseiraners& objeOted .
to the move.
But Paramedic -Gene
Raulerson had some questions
about the move. He asked
Smith what criteria Smith had
based .Thornton's. extra
percentage on.
SShe's been here for 18
years," 'Smith said. "and she's
done a good job for us."
Raulerson said he did not
doubt thai she had, but then
informed Smith of his own
longevity with the county..
"I've been here 25 years,"
Raulerson said. "Don't I
desert\ e a raise?"
Smith told~ Raulerson
because he had used time on
the job as a criteria, he would
look into a the possibility of
offering Raulerson 5 percent as
well.
With the issue of the raise
resolved, commissioners
adjourned the meeting.

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said that despite
intermittent rain this summer,
showers have not come with
sufficient frequency to ease the
wildfire threat. As a result,
Floridians need to remain
cautious with all outdoor fires.
"The summer Tainy season
has been unusual and has not
developed like we had hoped."
Bronson said. "Normally, we
would be out of wildfire
danger by now."
The KBDI or Keetch-Byram
Drought Index is a way that
scientists measure the amount
of moisture in the upper 36
inches of the soil. Readings are
given on a scale of 0 (saturated
soil) to 800 (desert-like
conditions). High values of the
KBDI mean that conditions are
favorable for the occurrence
and spread of wildfires.
Typically in August, the
KBDI registers in the 100 to
200 range. The current
statewide average KBDI
reading of 442, which is more
typical of late spring when
wildfire danger is high, is
testimony to lack of adequate
summer rainfall.
Bronson is concerned that
under these conditions, the
residual debris in forests from
recent hurricanes and tropical
storms will fuel bigger and
more destructive wildfires.
"Until we get more rainfall
and more widespread rainfall,
the large amount of uprooted
or dead and dying trees and
shrubs will make conditions
very dangerous for our
wildland firefighters," Bronson
said.
Florida averages about
5,000 wildfires each year.
Since January 1, 2006, 4,195
wildfires have burned
214,646.2 acres and destroyed
43 homes and 164 other
structures. Meanwhile,
thousands of homes and other
structures have been saved as a
result of the efforts of
firefighters.

Animals uue iu
Vesicular
Stomatitis
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced the
placement of restrictions on
the importation of animals
from states affected with
Vesicular Stomatitis following
a confirmed case in Wyoming,
the first such case reported in
the United States this year.
Vesiculnr Stomatitis is a
highly contagious, viral
disease that affects horses,
cattle, swine and occasionally
sheep, goats and deer. The
virus can also cause flu-like
symptoms in people working.
with infected animals. Signs of
Vesicular Stomatitis include
blister-like lesions in the
mouth, on' the .tongue, lips,
nostrils, hooves and teats.
While the virus is rarely fatal,
it does result in significant
weight loss and milk
production loss. It is also
difficult to distinguish between
this virus and foot and mouth
disease, a devastating livestock
disease found outside the
United States. States and other
countries often impose
movement restrictions on
animals from Vesicular
Stomatitis affected areas.
The USDA National
Veterinary' Services
Laboratories confirmed the
finding of a positive horse,
with clinical signs on a ranch
in Natrona County, Wyoming.
"I'm pleased to see that
Wyoming has taken immediate
action to hold animals on the
affected premises," Bronson
said, but the possibility that
this disease could be in other
areas makes it imperative that
we have rules in place to
prevent the disease from being
imported into Florida."
Florida requires veterinary
inspection of susceptible
animals coming from states
affected with Vesicular
Stomatitis. Hoofed animals
entering Florida from
Wyoming will require prior
permission for entry and must
be'accompanidd by an official
certificate of veterinary
inspection. Th~ pertificate,-fN
veterinary inspection must
state that the animals are free
of clinical signs of Vesicular
Stomatitis and have not been
exposed nor located within 10

miles of a positive premises,
within the previous 30 days. In
addition, any hoofed livestock
from states that are affected
-with Vesicular Stomatitis are
required .to have
documentation to show they
have been tested and found
negative within 10 days of
movement to Florida.



To follow, without halt, one
aim: There's the secret of
success.

State
announces new
tax exemption
for agricultural
producers
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced that a new
state law that takes effect this
month exempts electricity used
for agricultural production
from the state's sales tax.
"We are grateful that the
Legislature enacted this
meaningful relief measure,
which will assist our
agricultural producers in
helping them hold down their


production costs," Bronson
said.
Under terms of the law,
which took effect July 1, the
exemption requires that those
requesting it separately meter
electricity used in production
activities from the electricity
used for other purposes. If the
electricity is centrally metered
and is used for both tax-
exempt and taxable purposes,
the purchase of the electricity
is subject to tax.
The exemption covers
virtually all aspects of a farmer
or rancher's business
operation, including the
Preparation, planting,
cultivating, harvesting and
processing of agricultural
products. It includes
aquaculture, horticulture,'
flnricrilture. viticultuire.


forestry, dairy, livestock,
poultry, bees and any or all
forms of farm products.
To qualify for the
exemption, agricultural
producers must furnish their
utility provider with an
exemption certificate stating
that the electricity will be used
directly and exclusively for the
production or processing of
agricultural products.
Producers can contact the
Florida Department of
Revenue for forms and other
information about there
ex emption aEi

they can call the agency's
taxpayer services section at 1

Working to provide the best health care at home


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Home is where the heart is.
and the hearts of Gayle Nicula
and Andrea Waterhouse can be
found at Shands Starke, where
the two have worked many
years as nurses, rising through
the ranks and earning two
recent promotions.
In April, Nicula was named
the hospital's director of
quality and support services.
She. is responsible for the
emergency department,
dietary, central
supply/purchasing, medical
records, clinical education,
environment, utilization
review, infection control and
staff education.
Waterhouse, who previously
held that position, was
promoted to director of patient
services after the retirement of
Martha Epps. She is
responsible for the pharmacy,
Shands Medical Group
(clinic), medical surgery
nursing, surgery, physical
therapy, respiratory therapy
and admissions.
Thetwo began working at
Shands Starke six months after
graduating from nursing
school at Lake City
Community College in 1981
(back when the hospital was
known as Bradford' Hospital),
but they were familiar with the
hospital before that. Both
Nicula and Waterhouse are
Bradford High School
graduates.


Gayle Nicula (left) and Andrea Waterhouse take a
look at financial data at Shands Starke. Nicula was
named the hospital's director of quality and support
services in April, while Waterhouse, who previously
held the position, was named as the new director of


patient services.

Therefore, Nicula and
Waterhouse, whose homes
remain in Bradford County,
have had many opportunities
.to see and care for familiar.
faces while working at the
hospital.
"When people come in and
see a familiar face, that makes
them feel more at ease," said


Nicula, a 1977 BHS graduate,
who is the daughter of George
and Valaria Shuford.
"It makes people feel very
good when they see Gayle or
me there," said Waterhouse,
who is also the hospital's chief
nursing officer. "It makes them
feel better. They trust that
we're going to take care of
them. That's the greatest thing
about working here."
Waterhouse, a 1979 BHS
graduate, grew up in the
hospital's shadow. The
daughter of Jack (deceased)
and Carolyn Eaves, she grew
up just a short walk from the
hospital on Colley Road,


where her mother still lives.
Waterhouse remembers, that
her brother had his tonsils
removed at the hospital, while
she was taken there when she
was in a wreck as a teenager.
In fact, she was even born at
the hospital when doctors still
delivered babies there.
"It was a part of our growing
up," she said.
That helped plant the seeds
of her wanting to become a
nurse. That and the fact her
grandmother, Bernadine Early,
volunteered at the hospital as a
member of the Auxiliary. So
when a friend of hers asked her
if she wanted to go to nursing
school in Lake City,
Waterhouse agreed.
Nicula, who grew up in
Lawtey, may not have been in
the hospital's shadow-though
her father did serve on its
board of directors for 28
years-but she remembers
wanting to be a nurse since she
was a child.
"I love caring for patients,"
she said.
So she, like Waterhouse,
went to Lake City Community
College. The two women did
not know each other very well,
but they soon became good
friends.
"Immediately, we just
bonded," Waterhouse said.
The two could ride with
each other to Lake City, but
more importantly, they could
lean on each other for support
during the rigors of nursing
school.
"I couldn't have done it
without her," Nicula said.
Nicula and Waterhouse
began working at Alachua
General Hospital after
graduating, but it did not take
them long to find their way to
their hometown hospital.
Waterhouse said thanks go to

Epps for that. The two were
still on probation at AGH,
meaning they couldn't leave
for another job, but Epps
"stole" the young nurses,
Waterhouse said, by calling
the chief nurse at AGH and
saying the Starke hospital
needed them more than AGH
did.
That was- November 1981.
Though they have not always
worked together since
then-Waterhouse, for
example, returned to AGH and
also taught at LCCC-they
stuck together when it came to
continuing their education.
They went to the University of
North Florida, earning their
bachelor's degrees in nursing
in the late 1980s. They
received their master's degrees
from the University of Phoenix
in 2000.
"We have transcripts
everywhere," Waterhouse said.
The two had a goal to
graduate from the University
of Florida one day,
Waterhouse said. They did just
that in December .2005, after


going through the school's
family nurse practitioner
program.
In March, they passed
national certification, with
their promotions following
shortly thereafter.
The two have seen a lot of
changes take place at the
hospital. Now, they can take
an active part in future
changes, relying on their past
-experiences at the hospital to
help them. It is their desire to
see the hospital continue to
improve.
"If you're from this area,
you really want (the hospital)
to be a success," Nicula said.
"You really want the hospital
to grow."
It. has grown. Sixteen
specialists work at the hospital
on a rotating basis, while the
operating room allows patients
to undergo. general surgical
procedures (appendix, colon,
gall bladder, for example).
Nicula said people really have
no reason to travel elsewhere

Reader
concerned-
about 9 I
response
Dear Editor:
On August 13, while
visiting my son in Starke, I
awoke with intense pain, and
partial paralysis of my legs and
feet. At 78 years old and with
the medical problems that
accompany most seniors, this,
was a cause for concern, not
only on my part. My son was
very concerned for -the-
: possibility of a blood clot in
y legs and the need for
immediate medical help and
called 9L1.
It took three attempts before
someone finally answered the
911 phone line. Twice he
dialed and let it ring for as!
many as 10 to 15 rings and
finally, on the third attempt
After about 10 rings, a female
voice answered and my son
gave her the information to get
the ambulance and paramedics
on their way.
He then told her that he had .
to makc three attempts to get
the call through and how long
the phone rang. Her reply was:
"I have to get someone .to
check this out. I saw the lights
flashing, but I did not know
why they were flashing."
My question is: Was the so
called malfunction checked or
swept under the rug?
Also, if a ringer is turned off
and the person is sleeping or.
away- from- the phone, the
lights alone will not alert or


wake them.
.I wonder about people
needing the 91.1 service in the
future when the calls go
unanswered and time is of the
essence. Negligence on the part
of a 911 operator could cause
death or permanent injury at a
time when an accident victim
or; a heart attack victim needs'
help immediately.
As the wife (and now
widow) of a career army man, I
have lived in Europe, Japan and
several cities in the United
States where we were stationed
and I have never heard of a 911
call not being 'answered
--immediately. I believe that you
definitely have a problem with'


your 911 number or operator
that should be addressed so that
in the future the calls ,for
emergency help will be
answered immediately.
You or a member of your
family could very well need the
911 service at any given, time
and its too late then to address
the problem.
I must add that once thPe
paramedics arrived, they were
competent and quickly
transported me to the ER at
Shands Starke where I received
excellent and professional care
from the staff on duty and Dr.
Lee Gibson.

Community work squads are valuabletommodities


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
How would you like to save
more than $40 million a year?
That's exactly what the state of
Florida is saving, thanks to its
cooperat-on with "the
Department of Corrections and
the use of community work
squads.
Department of Corrections
statistics, supplied- to the
Bradford County Telegraph by
Richard Dugger, Region II
director, show that community
work squads, consisting of
Department of Transportation
work squads, public works and
interagency community service
work squads and contracted
work squads, performed
6,565,700 hours of. work
during fiscal year 2004-05.
That work was valued at more
than $74.7 million. After costs,
it provided Florida citizens
with a net cost savings of
$42.4 million.
"There is a lot of community


service going on out there to
address needs that counties and
cities could not otherwise
afford," Dugger said. "We're
proud to play that role for
every community and, most
certainly,-for this community
where we have so many
prisons that form the basis of
the local economy to a great
extent."
How does that impact the
local community. Take work
provided in the city of Starke
and Bradford County by
Lawtey Correctional
Institution. In May and June of
this year, LCI provided an
average of 231.5 inmates,
resulting in 2,771.15 man
hours for an approximate
savings of $23,031.65 per
month.
Map that out over a six-
month span, and you get a
savings of $138,189.90. Take
it out to a year, and you have a
savings of $276.379.80.
It's like being a good
neighbor," Dugger said. "We


have the resources the county
and the city may not have. If
we can do it, we're more than
willing to do it."
Unfortunately, work squads
cannot be provided for all of
the jobs out there. As with any
organization, the department
faces limitations, not
necessarily in terms of the
amount of inmate labor
available, but in terms of its
budget and staffing.
"We do have to pay for the
staffing involved with
supervising those inmate work
squads," -Dugger said.
"Sometimes funding, for those
initiatives becomes scarce
when we're trying to fund all
of the other things that we do."
As Dugger puts it, the will is
there to help out, but the
ability to do so might not
always be.
"We'd really like to
accommodate everyone we
can, but there are limitations
on how much you can do," he
said.
-There are three types of


community work squads:
public works and interagency
community service squads,
contracted squads and
-Department-of Transportation
squads.
Public works and
interagency squads provide
free labor under an agreement
between the department and a
governmental agency or non-
profit organization. These
squads performed 3.9 million
hours of labor at a value of
$50.4 million in' fiscal year
2004-05.
Contracted squads,
authorized by the legislature in
1997, require a governmental
entity to pay for their services,
which generates revenue for
the Department of Corrections.
As of June 30, 2005, DOC had
52 active contracts involving
56 positions supervising
contracted work squads. Those
squads performed 670,036


hours of work valued at $8.6
million fiscal year 2004-05.
Department of
Transportation work squads
are supervised by both DOT
and DOC, generating revenue
for DOC. These squads
performed 1.9 million hours of
work valued at $15.6 million
in fiscal year 2004-05.
The value of the work
squads, though, is measured in
more than just dollars and
cents. Dugger said he believes
working on such squads can
help inmates when they begin
their post-incarceration lives. It
gives them, the chance to
experience public life in a
responsible way.
"If they have forgotten, it's a
way of reintroducing them to it
perhaps in a constructive
way," Dugger said. "Isn't that
much better than simply
putting somebody behind bars,
leaving them there until their


time is up, taking them down
to the bus station and sending
them home, wherever that is?"
Dugger said for the: most
part, inmates are eager to .be on-
such squads and having the
chance to be a part of
something constructive.
Not all inmates are eligible
for community work squads,
but Dugger suggested there
could be things for those
'inmates who can't leave the
prisons to do, adding such
inmates. have done things in
the past like rebuild toys for:
Toys for Tots or other similar:
programs.
"If anybody can come up:
with a creative request, we'll:
try to accommodate it if we:
can," Dugger said. "The will is:
there to do it. The spirit of
cooperation is there to do it.
The interest is there.
"If we can find ways to,
address a need, we will."

TALKS program needs mentors,


especially men


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
A character development
program soon to be started at
two of the district's schools is
expected to improve student
behavior, decision-making and
school performance.
TALKS (Transferring A
Little Knowledge
.Systematically) mentoring
program is an opportunity for
Bradford County residents to
start the process-of change by
volunteering to be a mentor
with those schools.
Set to begin at Bradford
Middle School and Starke
Elementary School (grades 3-
8) on Sept. 5, TALKS helps-
adults pass on their knowledge
of important subjects to
students.
The program's curriculum is
based on talks a person's
father or mother never had
with them.
Bradford County Faith
Community Center Director
Elaine Slocum, who has been
working with the school
district for more than eight
months to start the program,
said more mentors are needed,
especially men.
If a would-be volunteer is
worried about whether they are
able to be an effective mentor,
Slocum said the ,program is
laid out for them. No mentor
has to come up with their own
material.
Potential mentors were
given program information in
an orientation session two
weeks ago. Slocum said if a
person was not able to attend
the meeting, they can still be a
mentor.

Andrew Carter's musical talent is a gift from God


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Andrew Carter had a
dream-he wanted to play
music.
He never learned to read
music, and was never formally
taught to play. That did not,
however, prevent him from
making his dream a reality, as
he is currently the minister of
music at New Hope
Missionary Baptist Church in
Starke.
"I've never had a lesson in
my life," Carter said. "All I've
got, the Lord gave to me from
above."
Carter, a Bradford County
native who is the son of
Andrew and Juanita Carter,
has been working in the music
ministry at the church for more
than 30 years. He works with
three different choirs at the
church: a mixed group, that
comprises 18 members, a male
group of 10 and a children's
group of 14.
Besides keeping busy with
those groups, he also works
with the Bradford County
Gospel Ensemble, which is
composed of members of
various area churches.
Carter, a 1977 Bradford
High School graduate, gives
credit to his grandmother,
Gertrude Carter, for his love of
music.
"She had a little turntable,"
he said. "We'd play gospel
songs. She and I would be
singing along until she told me
to go to bed."
It was an aunt who inspired
Carter to want to play the
piano and keyboard. He was a
member of a "tiny tot" choir at
Greater Bethlehem Freewill
Baptist Church, and his aunt
played with them. He
approached her about wanting
to learn to play the piano, but
she replied she wasn't going to
teach him anything-he would

The time commitment may
seem like a lot, but mentors
should think about what the
child is receiving and not what
they are giving up.
According to the TALKS
Web site, Davis said the
program results have showed
him it only takes a small
amount of time .to greatly
S influence the life of a child.
"We wanted to be able to
put something in people's
hands that wouldn't take a lot:

with the structured'curriculum.

wanted to play.
That's just what Carter set
out to do. He would look over
his aunt's shoulders as she
played during Friday night
practices, trying to memorize
how her hands moved on the
keys. Carter would then go to
the church on Saturdays and
try to replicate those
movements on the piano in the
fellowship hall.
He said some of the women
who were there at the church
that day would try to run him
off, but one of the church
deacons told them, "Leave that
boy alone. Let him alone. If he
wants to learn, let him learn.".
The first song Carter learned
.to play was "I Love the Lord."
He has, as he put it, "been
going ever since."
He must have been pretty
good at a young age. He was in
high school, participating in
football practice, when a

combined.
"There is no emphasis on a
bad kid," Slocum said.
The school district has been
receptive of the mentoring
program, with BMS setting
aside a short class period
devoted to it.
"It's something we hope,
over time ... we will see a
long-term effect," Slocum
said.
She thanked CMC Joist, Ray
Norman and Wal-Mart for
being the first supporters of the
program, as well as Davis for
coming to Bradford County to
train mentors himself.
"If the community gets
involved, it (the program) will
sustain itself," Slocum said. "If
(people) see the value of
mentoring but can't mentor,
they can help fund the
program," she said..

couple of members of New
Hope Missionary Baptist
Church approached him about
filling the church's need for a
musician. He responded by
saying he didn't "play that
great," but he agreed to go
play for the church members.
"They liked it," he said.
As evidenced by the fact he
was at football practice, music
was not the only love in
Carter's life. He played both
running back and linebacker at
BHS, but it was the offensive
side he especially enjoyed.
"I loved running that ball,"
he said.
Carter said one of his most
memorable games was a 1976
playoff game in which the
Tornadoes defeated Tarpon
Springs 22-19 for the Region 3
championship. Bradford trailed
19-7 at the half against what

TALKS curriculum will be
taught. Students will still have
a mentor.
TALKS will be presented,
with other character-based
programs, such as "Start

through the partnership of
Target and Tiger Woods.
These programs will create
more opportunities for
students, Cable said.
"We're tyring to take
advantage of things in the
.community to make a better
thing called education."
The class is only 12-15
minutes a day, but it will be
every day with small class
sizes (all staff will have a class
size of 12-16 for the
homeroom period).
Students will work in
groups, out of workbooks and
also have regular lessons
taught to them.
Cable said, "It offers them
something some have never
heard before."
Slocum agreed, saying, "I
think it's such a valuable thing
for, students 'to get the
knowledge they need."
If parents or potential
mentors would like 'more'
information on the program,
they can contact Dr. Shannon

Information will also be

gained 139 yards on 14 carries.
His 1-yard touchdown pulled
Bradford to within 19-14 in the
second half.
He would go on to play in
college at Tuskegee, but an
injury to his foot during his
junior year put an end to his
playing career.
It was an incident that tested

He has plenty to keep him

Career and technical center aims to lower dropout rate


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Let's face it-kids get bored
with middle and high school,
and some just can't hold out
for graduation, much less
college.
Then there are the kids who
have less than ideal home
lives. There are also kids who
cannot afford college.
The Bradford-Union Area
Career and Technical Center
has a program to reach
students like this and help
them learn skills necessary to
get high-paying jobs, without
ever having to attend college.
The performance-based
program allows high school
students to complete their
work at the career center and
graduate with a regular
diploma.
So how does this earn them
a high-paying job?
While they are completing
regular schoolwork,
performance-based students
are in vocational training
classes.
According to the career
center, classes like masonry,
cosmetology, welding and
accounting operations,, would
normally cost $2,887, $2,100,
$2,047 and $1,350,
respectively, plus textbook and
lab fees.
These programs would be
free-that's right, free-to
anyone in the performance-
based program.
Instructor Peggy Stanwix-
Hay said, "It is something all
parents of high school students
and students should know
about."
The program is for students
who are skipping school,
losing interest and/or would
rather go to work.
"They get discouraged. They
say they're going .to drop out,"


I .-l


Travis Townsend, a student in the
performance-based program, works out a math
problem on the board. Some of the class is
completed on the computer, but students also
are allowed a traditional classroom experience.


Stanwix-Hay said.
The 2004-2005 school year
dropout rate for Bradford.
County was 4.5 percent (58
students in grades nine-12).

behind other students her age.
"I wanted to come back and
be able to graduate," she said.
"I just want to graduate."
The program, started
approximately 13 years ago by
Jim Ward, gives students like
Bowen the opportunity to
succeed by allowing them to
see the light at the end of the
tunnel.
Stan%%i\-Hay said even if
students have everything in
place % ith their home life, they
still can get bored or fall
behind
If students have done poorly
in their class or have missed so
much school they were held
back, performance based puts
them in the grade they are
supposed to be by age.
tStudents are not allowed to
skip ahead to higher grades.)
.. Students take math -and
:Eiglish." If they have not
passed the FCAT, they take
remedial classes.
All students get two chances
to pass the GED, regardless of
their FCAT scores.
"The GED is not that easy,"
Stanwi\-Ha) said.
She said it is estimated that
30-40 percent of high school
students could not pass it.
To prepare for these tests,
students receive regular
classroom lessons with a


smaller teacher-to-student
ratio. One-on-one help is -given
too.
NOVAnet, a state
recognized computer program,
is used in the class, as well, to
help students move ahead to
the grade they are supposed to
be in.
The program at the career
center is like the regular high
school experience in some
ways. Students come every
day and have to follow the
same rules.
Despite popular belief, these
students can still play sports,
go to prom, graduate with a
regular diploma and walk in
the graduation ceremony.
"We're more flexible here,"
Stanwix-Hay said.
This willingness to meet the
students' individual needs is
shown in the program's
outcome.
"We have a high rate of
success -in the performance-
based program," Stanwix-Hay
said.
Students can learn a
vocation and work at the same

market since market organizers
usually schedule market days
so that they do not conflict
with other area schedules.
Farmers markets, however,,
are only one targeted market.
Other potential markets
include local' restaurants,
community supported
agriculture ,farms, and the local
school system. When farms are
supported by a collection of
homeowners who ban together
and prepay 'for crops
throughout the season, you
have a community--supported
agriculture farm. The grower
gets his money first, then
invests into producing the
crop.'
As the .grower harvests the
crop. a \ariet\ of his produce
is obtained regularly
throughout the grow ing season
by its supporters. The grower
has the advantage of knowing'
his crop is sold before he
grows it and homeowners have
the benefit of fresh food.. '
In the Farm to Schools
program, schools use local
produce when possible. This
reduces the distance food
needs to be transported before
being sold, gets the freshest
food available to our children
and stimulates the local
economy.
Small farms make up about
15 percent of all farm product
sales in Florida. The
University of Florida has
developed educational
programs that are geared to
helping small farmers succeed.
Topics to be covered include
information on alternative
crops and enterprises, technical
information* regarding
production methods, gaining'
access to profitable markets
and business skills
development.

Tornadoes have no problem in classic, win 47-0


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Matanzas, a second-year
school which is playing its first
season on the varsity football
level, was no match for
Bradford, which won an easy
47-0 preseason kickoff classic
played Aug. 18 at Flagler
Palmer Coast High School in
Bunnell.
The only thing in doubt
during the game was whether
or not Bradford's offense
-would take the field as the
Tornadoes scored three
.touchdowns without benefit of
an offensive snap. Chuckie
Covington and Rob Harris
each returned a punt for a
touchdown and Jawan Jamison
returned an interception for
another score.
Bradford's offense did
finally get into the act, scoring
26 points and averaging
approximately 6 yards per
play.
"Obviously it's a good start
and something to build on,"
Bradford head coach Chad
Bankston said.
One thing that had to
concern Bankston was the fact
his offense was prone to
making mistakes. The
Tornadoes committed six
penalties when on offense,
including two that negated
touchdown runs by Harris.
"You've got to expect that
early (in the season), but we'll
get that cleaned up," Bankston

said.
There couldn't have .been
many concerns with the
defensive unit's performance,
though. Bradford forced four
turnovers and allowed
Matanzas to gain just 24 yards.
One of the defensive
standouts was Covington, who
set the tone for the game early
when he tackled a ball carrier
for a loss of 5 yards on the first


play from scrimmage.
Covington then put the first
points on the board when he
fielded the Pirates' first punt at
his own 46 and took it all the
way into the end zone for a
touchdown at the 9:45 mark.
Glen Velasquez converted on
the PAT to put the Tornadoes
up 7-0.
Again, it was Covington
making his mark when the


Pirates' offense went back
onto the field. Covington
sacked the quarterback for a 6-
yard loss on first down, then
dropped a ball carrier for a 5-
yard loss on second down.
"He's just all over the field,"
Bankston said of the junior
defensive end. "His motor runs
100 miles per hour."
On third-and-21, Jamison,
who is just a freshman, stepped


BHS opens against Class 4A Pirates


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Now that an easy preseason
game is out of the way, the
Bradford football team will
face one of the teams that
handed it a loss last year when
the Tornadoes travel to play
the Class 4A Fernandina
Beach Pirates on Friday, Aug.
25, at 7:30 p.m.
The Pirates, like the
Tornadoes, finished last season
with a 3-7 record. They scored
an average of 15 points a game
last year, while allowing an
average of 25 per game.
Fernandina returns four


starters on offense: running
backs Ernest Green (senior)
and James Southers (junior),
fullback Travis Jacobs (senior)
and wide receiver Aaron
Fisher (senior).
The defense returns five
starters, including Fisher and
Green at the corner positions,
Jacobs at nose guard and
senior Neal Clements at
linebacker.
Green had one of the plays
of the game for the Pirates in
their 13-12 win over Bradford
last year when he scooped up
the ball following a blocked
field goal and returned it for a
touchdown as the first half


expired.
Fernandina's offense never
found the end zone in
regulation, but a 2-yard
touchdown run-and
subsequent extra point-in a
tie breaker gave the Pirates the
win.
Bradford's defense allowed
just 88 yards and five first
downs, but the offense's
failure to take advantage of
opportunities hurt the
Tornadoes. The team had first-
and-goal opportunities from
the 2- and 10-yard lines, but
failed to score.
Also, the Tornadoes had
problems with kicks getting


blocked. Besides the field goal,
both extra-point attempts were
blocked.

in front of a Matanzas receiver
for an interception, which he
returned for the Tornadoes'
second touchdown and a 14-0
lead.
Harris got into the act next
for Bradford when the Pirates
were forced to punt after a
series in which they lost 14
yards. He fielded the punt at
the Bradford 48 and didn't
stop until he crossed the goal
line.
. Bradford was up 21-0 six
minutes into the game and its
offense had still not seen any
action. That changed when
Joey Faulkner recovered a
fumble, finally giving the
Tornadoes a chance to run
some plays at the Matanzas 29.
It looked as if the offense
was going to have it just as
easy as the defense when
Harris sprinted around right
end on the team's first
offensive play for a
touchdown. The score was
called back, however, because
of a holding penalty. The same
thing would happen later in the
drive when Harris had another
touchdown run negated.
Bradford eventually turned
the ball over on downs, but the
offense got it going on its, next
series, driving 47 yards for the
fourth touchdown of the
evening. Most of those 47


yards came on Jamison's 39-
yard touchdown run that put
his team up 27-0 with 9:44 to
play in the first half.
Jernard Beard scored two
touchdowns for Bradford to
send the Tornadoes into
halftime up 40-0. The first
came on a 48-yard reception
from quarterback Antwan
Brown, the second on a 27-
yard run.
Beard was one of six
running backs to carry the ball
for Bradford. He gained 38
yards on four carries.
Jamison led the group with
45 yards on four carries, while
Gerald Goodman had 40 yards
on seven carries aid Dejor Hill
had 36 yards on nine carries.
Overall, the Tornadoes
rushed for 222 yards on 33
carries.
The team's last score came
on an 8-yard touchdown run
by freshman Robert Boswell
with 40 seconds left in the
game. The score was set up by
a 16-yard run by Goodman.
Another freshman, Rodney ,
Mosley, participated in the .
drive, taking'over for Brown;atr.
quarterback as every player
was able to get into the gamV -
and see action. ,,
"The young kids came out-.. .
and showed some go-od, .
things," Bankston said.


Always do right. This will surprise some people and
astonish the rest.

Wildfire

threat

remains
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said recently that
despite intermittent rain this
summer, showers have not
come with sufficient frequency
to ease the wildfire threat. As a
result, Floridians need to
remain cautious with all
outdoor fires.
"The summer rainy season
has been unusual and has not
developed like we had hoped."
Bronson said. "Normally, we
would be out of wildfire danger
by now."
The Keetch-Byram Drought
Index, of KBDI, is a way that
scientists measure the amount
of moisture in the upper 36
inches of the soil. Readings are
given on a scale of 0 (saturated
soil) to 800 (desert-like
conditions). High values of the.
KBDI mean that conditions are
favorable for the occurrence and
spread of wildfires.
Typically in August, the
KBDI registers in the 100 to
200 range. The current
statewide average KBDI reading
of 442, which is more typical
of late spring when wildfire
danger is high, is testimony to
lack of adequate summer
rainfall.
Bronson is concerned that
under these conditions, the
residual debris in forests from


recent hurricanes and tropical
storms will fuel bigger and
more destructive wildfires.
"Until we get more rainfall
and more widespread rainfall,
the large amount of uprooted or
dead and dying trees and shrubs
will make conditions very
dangerous for our wildJand
firefighters," Bronson said.
Florida averages about 5,000
wildfires each year. Since Jan.
1, 4,195 wildfires have burned
214,646 acres and destroyed 43
homes and 164 other
structures. Meanwhile,
thousands of homes and other
structures have been saved as a
result of the efforts of
firefighters.

Agricultural

electricity use

is now tax

exempt
BY JIM DEVALERIO
Bradford Extension Agent
The State of Florida
Department of Revenue issued
a sales, tax exemption for
agricultural electricity use on
July 1.
Electricity used directly and
exclusively for the production
or processing of agricultural
farm products on a farm is
exempt from sales tax. This
e\eniption only applies if the
electricity is separately
metered from that used for
non-production or non-
processing purposes. Other
tax-exempt uses include
electricity used to supply


power to greenhouses, poultry
houses, dairy barns, horse
stables and processing
facilities located on a farm.
To qualify for the
exemption, the purchasing
farmer must furnish the utility
provider with an exemption
certificate stating that the
electricity will be used directly


and exclusively for the
production or processing of
agricultural farm products on a
farm.
You can call Taxpayer
Services, 8 a.m.-7 p.m.,
Monday-Friday, at (800) 352-
3671, or call the Bradford
County Extension Service at
(904) 966-6224.

question this Friday, Aug. 25,
at 7:30 p.m. when they travel
to Madison to take on the
Class 2A Madison County
Cowboys.
Of course, how .good
Madison County is this year
remains to be seen as well, but
the Cowboys seem to -do a
good jpb of reloading eiery
year. The team's defense was
decimated by graduation
following the 2004 season, but
the Cowboys still rolled
through an undefeated regular
season-its fourth in a
row-in 2005, advancing to
the Class 2A semifinals before
losing 29-14 to eventual state
runner-up South Sumter.


Madison traveled to Ocala to
face reigning 2B
champion-and fellow Union
district opponent-Ocala
Trinity Catholic in a half of
play in a preseason kickoff
classic. The Cowboys lost 13-
6.
Trinity took a 13-0 lead with
2:20 left to play, but Madison
finally got on the board when
Chris Thompson scored bn a
7-yard run with 27 seconds
remaining.
Thompson finished the half
with 41 yards on five carries,
while Jordan Johnson had 69
yards on seven carries.
Defensively, the Cowboys
allowed just 21 rushing, yards
on 13 attempts, but Trinity
quarterback John Brantley was
8-of-14 for 145 yards.
Madison allowed
touchdowns oti a 1-yard run
and a 16-yard pass.

A new chapter opened in the
Buddy Nobles era of football
at Union County High School
S' Friday night with a big
surprise.
b Nobles, known for his use of
the wing-T offensive scheme,
opened up the passing game on
A. the Tigers' way to a 12-7

Raiders in a half of play in a

The Tigers had twice as

"We liked what we saw and

Nobles said. "I hope that not
only our players enjoy it more,
but the community as well."
Several Tiger players said
they were enjoying the new
wrinkles the scheme was
offering. Quarterback Austen

The Tigers, however, were
not content even if the game

just what it could do with its
new offense.
From the Santa Fe 46, the
Tigers proceeded to move the

Nobles, after his team missed

Indians reign in rainy kickoff classic


BY ARNIE HARRIS
LRM Staff Writer
The kickoff classic on
Aug. 18, which saw the
Keystone Heights varsity team
top the Ridgeview Panthers
22-7 in *the first half of the
game, may have started off as
an initiation by fire for both
teams, but by the second
quarter it became one by
water. Much of the second
quarter was played in a
torrential downpour.
But even before Mother
Nature became a factor in the
contest, both teams, eager to
get off on the right foot, were
busy shooting themselves in
those feet instead.
In the first several minutes,
while the Panthers 'advanced
to the rear' by way of multiple


penalties, the Indians were
suffering from an acute case of
fumbleitis, losing control of
the pigskin three times.
Fortunately .for them, they
recovered it twice.
Despite the miscues, the
Indians, on their second drive,
drew blood first when running
back Greg Taylor, who had
already provided, most of the
.offense up until then, broke
loose for a 57-yard touchdown
romp at the 8:04 mark of the
first quarter. The two-point
conversion attempt came up
short and Keystone settled for
a 6-0 lead.
In the closing minutes of the
first quarter, the Panthers
began a. sustained 74-yard
drive, highlighted by a 33-yard
reception by Riley Hill. With


44 seconds remaining in the
opening period, receiver Leo
Alexander pulled in a 15-yard
touchdown pass, and
Ridgeview edged ahead 7-6.
As the second quarter
opened up, so did the ominous
storm clouds which loomed
overhead. However, the deluge
had little dampening effect on
Taylor,- who returned the-1
Panthers' kickoff 35 yards
down to their 35. Moved along
by the hard-nosed running of
Matt Story, the Indians once
again struck pay dirt on a 14-
yard touchdown connection
from Blake Lott to receiver
Cameron Yarbrough with
11:18 remaining in the second
quarter. The Indians went up
14-7 with the successftil two-
point conversion.


The Panthers' ensuing drive
was stopped dead in its tracks
when the Indians' Riki Olivier
picked off a pass at
Ridgeview's 39. Several plays
later, the Indians' Lott ran the
ball in on a quarterback keeper
with 5:03 left in the varsity-
game. The Indians again made
good on the two-point attempt
as Josh Mangus hauled in the
pass to increase the lead to 22-
7.
From then on, the minutes
trickled down and the
downpour subsided to a light
shower, as the Keystone-
defense shut down the
Panthers' offensive drives.
The Keystone and--
Ridgeview junior varsity teams
were supposed to play for a-:
half.as well, but the action was-*:
cancelled due to the weather.
