County deals with burn ban, personnel issues


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Hoping for much-needed
rain that hasn't come, Union
County officials could no


longer hold off issuing a burn
ban.
At Monday's Board of
County Commissioners
meeting, a 3-0 vote approved


the issuance of the burn ban.
Commissioners Morris Dobbs
and Melaine "Red" Clyatt were
absent from the meeting,
leaving the decision to Karen


Cossey, Wayne Smith and
Ricky Jenkins.
Emergency Management
Director Doug York
approached the commission


with the information regarding
the drought index, which is in
the high 600s.
He said this number was the
highest in all of northeast
Florida, and these numbers
have not been seen since the
fires of 1998.
"We do have the extreme
conditions," York said when
asking for the burn ban.
The director said he had
delayed issuing a burn ban
because the community had
cooperated in safe burning.
"The community and county.
have been watchful as a
whole," he said, but "it's at a
point where it could cause
considerable liability."
"I would-not want to wait
until it did."
The burn ban applies to the
whole county because 69
percent of it is in danger zones
caused by drought.
According to the resolution,
the "official drought index and
known dry and windy
conditions" continue to "cause,
exacerbate and increase the
threat of wildfires within
Union County," so the ban will
protect the health, safety and


property' of the citizens and
visitors to the area.
The resolution bans the use
of outdoor flares, explosives,
sparklers and/or other outdoor
burning devices, and lawful
outdoor burning. Debris and
lawns cannot be burned.
During the ban, not only are
outdoor burning devices
banned, but the sale of
fireworks, explosives,
combustible compounds and
flares are also prohibited.
This excludes the use of
attended and monitored
barbecue/cooking equipment.
York said he first consulted
with the local Department of
Forestry and other resources
before he came to his decision.
The burn ban will be
reviewed every 14 days to see
if drought conditions have
changed.
During the burn ban, the
New River Regional Landfill
will accept yard debris with no
load limits to encourage people
not to burn it.

Big Red Christmas Drive

wraps up its final days


Who's ready for Christmas?


Santa Claus, apparently. Mr. Claus was so prepared
this year that he had extra time to greet children at
the elementary school, attend parties, ride in


parades and call out door prize numbers. Look
inside for more Santa sightings and seasonal photos
from around the county.


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
The Big Red Christmas
Drive has seen that Union
County is full of people wit big
hearts.
After the Simmons and
Scarth families were profiled*
in previous issues of the Union
County Times, donations have
increased
However, residents still have
a few days to make sure
someone else's holiday season
is full of peace, love and joy.
The Big Red Christmas
Drive has been helping those
people in the community who
are less fortunate since 2001.
Sponsored by the Union
County Volunteer Fire
Department and emergency
personnel, the Big Red
Christmas Drive will sponsor
more than 50 families this
season. This was up from 30
families in 2005.
According to Union County
Sheriff's Deputy Mindy
Goodwin, one of these is the
Geiger family. Goodwin
shared their story.
The family is made up of a


single mom, Belinda, and her
children Travis Clark, 17, T.J.
Geiger, 16, and Bryanna
Harper, 22 months.
Belinda lost her job because
she was taking a lot of time off
to be'with Bryanna, who is in
and out of the hospital with
respiratory problems.
Brnanna has chronic asthma,
and one of her lungs functions
at only 10 percent of its
capacity.
Goodwin said, "Belinda was
forced to make the decision of
going to work or staying with
her baby at the hospital."
Bryanna was on Medicaid,
but once Belinda lost her job at
a state hospital, the Medicaid
was dropped in August.
The Medicaid will be
reinstated because of the job
loss, but this does not take
effect until January 2007.
In the meantime, Goodwin
said Belinda has gotten behind
in paying Bryanna's medical
bills. The loss of income and
insurance coverage leaves

In other business Dec. 19.
Union's Board of Count\
Commissioners voted 3-0 to
terminate the 4-H program
coordinator, Courtnie Douglas,
who works out of the

returned when she failed to
show up for work.
Douglas, who was in a car
accident, is required by

leave from work.
After more than three weeks,

BY JACQUE BREMAN
Special to the Times
In 2001 we were facing
similar conditions: little
rainfall, stunted pastures and
low hay supplies.
Livestock producers still
have some options. The
following is adapted from a
presentation Dr. Kunkle, the
previous UF/IFAS Extension
Livestock Specialist, made at
the Florida Beef Cattle Short
Course in 2001.
We can reduce our livestock
herds to stretch our hay and
pastures as much as possible.
You might want to develop a
prioritized list while culling
and carrying those animals to
market.
The following prioritized list
might be helpful: 1) larger
calves than can be weaned
early; 2) cows without calves,
3) cows with calves but
palpated open, 4) replacement
heifers, 5) cows with calves
palpated short bred,\6) cows
with calves palpated pregnant
that have problems (bad legs,
bad feet, teat problems, etc.),
7) older palpated pregnant
cows if teeth are missing, thin
cows with calves that are
palpated pregnant and 8)
middle-age cows palpated
pregnant.

Tiger Idol gives viewers a Disney December to remember


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Contestants of Tiger Idol 3
were bored with the standard
holiday music each year, so
they came up with a different
theme for the Dec. 14 show.
"A Disney December" was
born, and the remaining
contestants sang songs from
their favorite Disney movies.
Hosts Celeste Wilson and
Elliot Willis were also back for
the night.
The remaining nine
participants sang the following
songs:
Kaleb Clyatt "Under the
Sea" from the Little Mermaid,
Michelle Hunter "A Whole
New World" Aladdin, Ashley
Crawford "Colors of the
Wind" Pocahontas, Tyler
Gordon- "A Friend Like Me" -
Aladdin, Ashley Benton -
"Beauty and the Beast"
Beauty and the Beast, Trish
Berrier "A Part of that
World" Little Mermaid,
Anthony Wallace "Bare


Necessities" The Jungle
Book, Camryn Wessner I'm
Still Here" Treasure Planet
and Melissa Dukes "I Won't
Say I'm In Love" Hercules.
Each show of Tiger Idol is
getting more competitive with
contestants dressing more with
the theme, including backup
dancers, singers and glow-in-
the-dark accessories.
Even with the added effort
of dressing as Pocahontas,
contestant Ashley Crawford
was eliminated this week
based on the Nov. 9 votes.
Tara Kirkpatrick was also
eliminated when she failed to
appear at the show.
The fourth show of Tiger
Idol 3 will feature music from
Broadway on Thursday, Jan.
11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Union
County High School
auditorium. Two contestants
from- the Disney December
show will be eliminated on
that date.


Pocahontas,
known at the
high school as
Ashley
Crawford, took
the stage last
Thursday to sing
"Colors of the
Wind."
Unfortunately,
she was
eliminated.


Tyler Gordon
used glow-in-
the-dark
accessories and
back-up dancers
(not pictured) to
accent his sohg,
"A Friend Like
Me" from
Aladdin.

Couple about to celebrate milestone 75th anniversary


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
In the days of marriages that
last a couple of years, or even
days, it is rare to find a couple
whose vows have stood the
test of time.
Though, just outside of
Worthington Springs on C.R.
18 lives a couple who will
soon celebrate their 75"'
wedding anniversary with a
party in their honor.
Milton Robert Dukes and


Carland Harden are lifelong
residents of Union County.
Born on Dec. 6, 1914,
Carland came from a longline
of farmers and was raised in
Providence. Milton, born on
June 24, 1910, was raised near
Dukes. His grandfather,
Jonathan Robert Dukes, was
one of the founding preachers
of the Little Springs Primitive
Baptist Church.
The two met at school in
Lake Butler when Carland was


17 years old and Milton, 21,
drove a school bus.
Without telling their parents,
they got married at the school
on Wednesday, Dec. 16, 1931,
by the late Judge Hal Maines.
Carland said they chose the
date because it was a day when
school was out.
While all the witnesses to
the occasion are now gone, the
Dukes-Carland at 92 and
Milton at 96-still remember
the days following the event.

After marrying on a
Wednesday, she said they
waited two days to tell anyone
at the school.
Carland's -dad also drove a
school bus, which she and her
friend, Virgie Pope, rode
home.
Carland wrote a note to her
dad and gave it to Pope to
deliver. The note said she had
gotten married and would be
home on Sunday to pick up her
clothes.
"They weren't mad, I
reckon," Carland said of her
parents because she never
heard their disapproval.
Milton and Carland lived
with his-parents on their farm
(the Jonathan Matthew Dukes
farm) near, Worthington
Springs.
Carland said they moved
out, but then moved back in to
take care of Milton's parents.
In 1947, the couple bought
an adjoining farm where they
still reside today.
They moved in Milton's
mother to take care of her
before she died, as well.
Early in their marriage, the
Dukes made it through not
only the death of Milton's
parents, but had to deal with
the Depression, as well.
The Dukes family grew to
include seven children (and
their spouses): Wayne
(Mildred), J.R., Hilda Dukes
Robinson (Jim), Delaris
Cavanagh (John), Glenda
Dukes Thigpen (Larry), Pam
Dukes Roberts (Ron) and
Faron (Marie).
Times were hard on
everyone, but Milton said they
managed.
"Most people farmed," he
said.
Carland said, "We always
had enough to eat."
She also saved money by
making the children's clothes.
"I always sewed. My mother
sewed, too," she said. "I never
had to buy much for the girls."
Milton continued to drive
the school bus for a number of
years after their wedding, apd
Carland was a homemaker

C rland Harden Dukes (left) and Milton Robert
Dukes celebrated their 75th anniversary on Dec. 16.
Their family is marking this rare anniversary with a
reception in their honor on Saturday, Dec. 23, at the
Worthington Springs Community Center, from 1:30
to 3 p.m.


until the late 1950s when she
went to work at Sunland, the
state hospital in Gainesville.
She worked there for 21 years
and retired in 1980.
Milton said the couple has
seen many changes, "from the
horse and buggy days to the
Model Ts" and beyond.
He remembered when he
could catch a passenger train
in Dukes that would take him
to Jacksonville and other
places.
"There ain't much to it now,"-
he said.
Now at 92, Carland only
drives to Lake Butler for
groceries and to Lake City for
doctor's appointments.
But yes, she drives, and she
was proud to report she passed
her driving test to get her
driver's license renewed
Wednesday, Dec.' 6, on her
birthday.

The Nutcracker ballet expands fine arts in county


five scenes based on the story
of E.T.A. Hoffman and the
music of Peter Tchaikovsky.
The Nutcracker begins in a
small village in Germany on
Christmas Eve.
A mysterious toymaker
arrives at a Christmas party
with a nutcracker that he says
is really a prince under a spell
that only can be broken by true
love. After giving the gift to
Clara Stahlbaum, the party
ends, but she can't get the
story out of her mind.
She falls asleep under the
Christmas tree, and the
toymaker uses magic to
transform the parlor into a
world of fantasy.
When she awakes, the
Nutcracker has become a
prince. With him, ste travels


through menacing rats and
forests, and meets cherubs,
snow queens, a maiden of
coffee, a sugar plum-fairy and
more.
Clara finally awakes on
Christmas morning to find she
is back in the Stahlbaum
parlor, alone with the
nutcracker doll. It was all just
a fantastic dream-or was it?
The production gave dozens
of Union County children and
adults a chance to experience
the art of storytelling through
ballet, as dancers and as
audience members.
With more than 600 people
total attending -the production
over the two-day time span,
the ballet was a big step to
expanding fine arts in Union
County.


A forest cherub, Edesse Porier, bids Clara, Chelsey Ballet 3 and 4 danced the Waltz of the Snowflakes,
Crews, and the Nutcracker Prince, Brandon led by the Snow Queen, Lynne Riherd. Snowflakes

Travel abroad
Have you always wanted to
travel abroad and see places
and things you've never seen?

Twenty-four Union County
residents are now planning
their next trip with Educational
Tours to Germany, Austria,

be with the group at all times
to be sure they don't miss
anything.
This is a wonderful
opportunity and is available to
students and adults, said Union
County High School Spanish
teacher Beverly Breckenridge.
You do not have to be a
aren't t of a student to take the
-trip and where- you reside is
not a factor. All are welcome.

Seniors can

get energy

assistance
Energy assistance is
important to all that receive it,
but it is critical for the elderly
who are more at risk for life-
threatening illness or death if
their homes are too cold in the
winter.
Older adults are especially
vulnerable to hypothermia, or
abnormally, low body
temperature. The drop in body
temperature can be a result of
staying in a cold place for too
long. According to the
National Institutes of Health,
hypothermia kills
approximately 600 Americans
every year and half of those-
are 65 years old or older.
As the body ages, its ability
to endure long periods of
expose to cold is lowered.
Older people are at an increase
risk' for hypothermia because.
certain illnesses, such as
diabetes, and medicines affect
the body's response to cold.
Hypothermia affects the brain
making the victim unable to
think clearly or move well.
Signs to look for that
indicate hypothermia include
confusion, drowsiness, slowed
or slurred speech, shivering or
stiffness in the arms and legs,
weak' pulse or low blood
pressure, or poor control over
body movements or slow
reactions.
If you suspect that someone
is suffering from the cold and
you have a thermometer
available, take the temperature
and if it's 96 degrees or lower,
contact 911 for emergency
help.
To prevent hypothermia, in
addition to dressing
appropriately for the outdoor
climate, older adults must
make sure their home is warm.
Energy assistance is available
for those 60 and older who are
having problems keeping their
home warm. The Emergency
Home Energy Assistance for
the Elderly program is
available for people 60 years
of age and older, who meet
income guidelines and are
experiencing an energy-related
crisis.
A crisis may be an
impending cut-off of
electricity, lack of fuel, wood,
blankets and heating unit, or a
broken heating system.
Individuals interested in
applying for program
assistance should contact the
Elder Helpline at (800) 96-
Elder or (800) 963-5337. The:
Elder Helpline is available
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.
5 p.m. Voice mail is available
for after-hour calls.
For more information on
hypothermia, please contact
the National Institutes of
Health at www.nih.gov.

... j""" Stephanie

S', cheerleading
Captain at Union
S" County High
School. She has
been chosen to
perform in the
AutoZone
Liberty Bowl on
Friday, Dec. 29.








Cheerleader's pep takes

her to the Liberty Bowl


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Getting to be part of the
college football bowl game
festivities is not an opportunity
many people get-especially
cheerleaders.
However, one local
cheerleader has been picked
and will attend the AutoZone
Liberty Bowl in Memphis,
Tenn., when Houston faces
South Carolina.
Stephanie Crosby is a 15-
year-old sophomore at Union
County High School, where
she is active in many clubs
(Beta, HOSA, Future Business
Leaders of America and
student government). She is
the daughter of Liesa and Tony
Crosby.
Each year, the cheerleaders
attend Cheerleading Technique
Camps at their school. At the
end, the camp organizers pick
people to participate in bowl
games.
Chosen cheerleaders, like
Crosby, have the option to
attend one of seven bowl
games. From UCHS, only two
cheerleaders were
picked-Crosby and Jordon
Reynolds.
Crosby was also chosen last
year, but like Reynolds this
year, she was not able to
attend.
When asked what she


thought about being chosen for
a second year in a row, Crosby
said, "It was awesome. Only so
many people get picked."
Excluding one year in Pop
Warner, Crosby has been
cheering since sixth grade. She
is now the junior varsity
cheerleading captain.
She will take these skills to
the Liberty Bowl. Once she
arrives in Tennessee, she will
be paired with a school from
Kentucky because individual
entries are no longer accepted.
Then, she will have to
practice to learn an all-new
routine that will be performed
during halftime of the bowl
game with headliner LeAnn
Rimes. As a bonus, Crosby
will also get to participate in a
week's worth of activities.
Crosby is making the
experience a family affair,
with her mom, brother,
boyfriend and grandfather all
going to the game with her.
She will leave the day after
Christmas and get to go to a
rodeo, be in the Beale Street
Parade and other events.
If you want to see this local

3:30 p.m. on ESPN.


If you still don't have your
fill of Santas, lighted nativities
and other seasonal items, there
are still four days before
Christmas to find a few more.
A quick drive around the
county produced more than
enough displays to keep at
bored individual busy for quite
a while. From the highly
decorated prison housing in
Raiford, to displays within the
city of Lake, decorations also
reach further out in the county.
If in search of some
dedicated decorators, go down
C.R. 796 (off of S.R. 121).
Take a right at the first' stop
sign, and a left at the second
one. It's not far after that, there
is a row of houses that have
lighted displays.
And it may be because of
the inspiration of their
neighbors, Retha Ann
Dickson.
Dickson lives at 8206 S.W.
C.R. 796. Her yard, cannot be
missed, It is full of lighted
inflatables, Santas, a nativity,
crosses, sleighs, animated
characters, trains and more.
There are lights on trees, lights
on the house and there's even a
giant inflatable Grinch.
But Dickson's son and
husband said, that's the only
Grinch you'll find at their
residence.
Her son, Eric, said it has
been his mother's mission to
get all her neighbors' to
decorate and create somewhat
of a Christmas lane for people
seeking out decorations.
Eric said his mom adds
something every year. This
year, it was a lighted wire
helicopter, mounted high
above the ground with lights
flashing and moving around
like chopper blades. ".K;:
"She does this all for the
kids," he said-ones in the
neighborhood and her 20
grandchildren.
Eric and his father, Bruce,
said Retha is so dedicated that
she recently became sick
because she was putting up
more lights in. the cold
weather.
So, if you have time for a
drive, take a look around the
county and appreciate all the
decorations businesses and
people like Retha put a lot of
effort into.


Archer's Funeral Home reminds everyone to slow down during the holiday season
and have a little "Peace on Earth."


With an inflatable snowman and Santa, a decorated
tree and lights galore, Pete Moseley's yard lights up
the center of Lake Butler, off of S.R. 121.

News from Bradford County, Union County and the -ake Region area


Arizona unit prepares for


deployment at Blanding


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Jarrod Christmas has the
perfect name for this time of
the year, but he hasn't had
much time this month to spend
shopping for presents.
Christmas is one of 40
members of the First Battalion,
1581h Infantry Regiment, based
out of Phoenix, Ariz., who
recently completed two weeks
of infantry reclassification
training at Camp Blanding in
preparation for deployment to
Afghanistan next month.
Christmas, whose rank is
private first class, admitted the
weather could have been a
little better-it was damp and
rainy on some days-but he
and some of his fellow
Guardsmen had nothing but
high praise for the training
they received here in Florida.
'"The instructors were
excellent," Christmas said.
"They did a good job- of
getting the knowledge across
that we're going to need while
overseas."
Staff Sgt. John Ralph said,
"It's really impressive, the
facility, and the instructors
here are top-notch."
Whether it took place in a
classroom or out in the field,
Ralph, who spent the previous
six years as a member of a
civil support group, said all of
the training was useful.
"I didn't .come ..from an
infantry background, so this
was all pretty good training for
me," he said.
Ralph said the Arizona
Guardsmen put in some long
hours during their training
period, which ended Dec. 15.
Training, which included two
full nights spent out in the
field, took place both day and
night. The days began at 6 a.m.
with an hour of physical
training.
"(It was) a pretty good


regimen," Sgt. I Class Abe
Monreal said of the physical
training. "We ran, (and there
were) a lot of calistenics."
Monreal was previously a
recruiter-a role he served in
for three years. However, he
said he felt left out while the
people he was recruiting were
serving and fighting overseas.
"There was a part of me that
felt I was kind of being
cheated out of the opportunity
by not going," Monreal said.
"So I volunteered."
In fact, many of the
members of the First Batalliori,
158"' Infantry Regiment can
say that. Monreal said most of
.the members served in service
and support roles before
volunteering to make a switch.
"We transferred over into
the infantry because we
believe it to be a viable role in


support of Operation Enduring
Freedom," Monreal said.
The infantry members will
get a chance to spend some
time at home before their
deployment-an approximate
two-week period before
leaving for Fort Bragg, N.C.
"I'm glad I get to spend the
holidays with my family,"
Ralph said. "That's kind of
nice."
Ralph admitted he's a little
nervous about going to
Afghanistan, but added he's
also excited. He cited having
the opportunity to serve
alongside a "good group of
guys," sentiments echoed by
Christmas.
"We're going with an
excellent group of
people-very good soldiers,"

Bradford County

native appears in

new Rocky movie


BY KATRINA BOSSARD
Special to the Telegraph
. When Bishop Garry L.
Tyson graduated from
Bradford High School and left
his job of bagging groceries at
Winn Dixie in 1984, he had no
idea where his life was headed.
He surely had no inclination
that he would one day appear
alongside Sylvester Stallone
on the big screen.
Tyson celebrated his 40"'
birthday on Dec. 20-the same
da\ of the opening of the
mov ie "Rocky Balboa," in
which Tyson hds a part.
The Bradford County native,
who is a minister in Seattle,
said the 'title character is
someone he can relate to.
"I ,feel like Rocky-an"
underdog from a small town,
but those are the people God
uses, the underdogs," Tyson
said.'
Tyson does not have a
speaking part in the movie (his
dialogue did not make the final
edit), but his role,
nonetheless, is one that is
quite familiar to him. He plays
a Baptist preacher ringside
with real-life boxer Antonio
Tarver, the World Light
Heavyweight Champion who
also appears in the movie. This
is not just a part Tyson plays
on the big screen. This is also
what he does in real life, which
is how the opportunity to be.in
the movie came about.
Tyson has traveled with
Tarver the. past four years as an
essential part of his entourage.
His role has been to provide
prayer, motivation and
inspiration for the champ
before and during his fights.
Tarver refuses to fight
without his bishop present, so
as art imitates life, he
requested his bishop also be by
his side and a part of this
movie.
This is not Tyson's first time
in front'of the camera. He and
his wife, Elder Nicole Tyson,


Garry Tyson


are regular hosts of TBN live
in Seattle. Tyson has been the
pastor of Goodwill Missionary
Baptist Church in Seattle since
December 2003.
His life in the ministry
began in 1987 when he was
licensed and ordained at
Metropolitan Missionary
Baptist Church in Cocoa
Beach. In 1993, Tyson was
called 'to pastor the Greater
Bethlehem Missio6ii'ry Baptist.
church in DeLand. Then it was
off to the Pacific northwest.
Tyson is a well-known
figure in the Seattle area, being
sought after to, conduct
workshops, conferences and
revivals. He has ministered all
over the country and led two
missionary trips to Port Au
Prince, Haiti.
Tyson has bachelor's and
master's degrees, as well as a
doctorate, in Christian
counseling from Brevard
Christian University in Cocoa
Beach. His most recent
accomplishment is a certificate
of pastoral leadership from
Seattle University.

Ag museum
gets grant to
complete
exhibit
Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson recently announced
that the Florida Historical
Commission has recommended
$80,000 in grant funding be
approved by the Florida
Legislature. The funds will be
used to complete the Traxler
Commissary as a permanent
museum exhibit.
With funds provided by the
Florida Department of State,
the commissary was moved
from Alachua County and
reassembled on the mdfseum
property during 2003.
The community of Traxler
was developed during the 1870s
and 1880s. It included the
commissary, a cotton gin,
sawmill, a pne-room school
house, a small church, homes
for eight farming families, and
the Traxler home.
The Traxler commissary
served the community as the
general store, trading center,
post office, polling place, and
bank until the 1940s. Like

The Florida Agricultural
Museum presented a special
category grant for $80,000 to
the Florida Historical
Commission in Tallahassee.
Against a field of 125 other
applicants, the museum's grant
was ranked 44th. Staff at the
Division of Historical
Resources has estimated that
the top 56-57 applicants will
be funded.
The grant funding will be
-used to complete the counters,
reassemble the postal window,
and purchase the remaining
inventory appropriate to
recreate the commissary as it
was in 1890.
Bronson noted that the
Traxler Commissary is an
example of both the substance
and spirit of Florida's earlier
agricultural days and will serve
as an important addition to the
Florida Agricultural Museum's
exhibits.

1 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Help needed
for Christmas
To anyone who may be able
to help:
My name isdIa Martin. I am
71 and have:inever been late on
my bills or missed a payment
in the last seven years.
Four years ago my daughter
and son-in-law gave up their
home to move in and help me.
They have. been a Godsend.
Both myself and my son-in-
law are disabled. He's been
waiting to settle with Social
Security anddisability, but it's,
not close enough to help.
For Christmas I got an
eviction notice. The person
who owns the lot needs it
back. .I own my doublewide


mobile home, butt we don't
know what to do. All we need
is one acre of land. It doesn't
matter if it has an old trailer on
it. We can get it moved or take
it down, but we will not have
enough money until my son-
in-law settles with Social
Security.#
We are looking for a. site,
anywhere in Bradford County
and the surrounding areas, not
too far from my daughter's
job.
If there is anyone out there
who knows of a place, or who
can help, please call me (904)
368-9719. We have until
March to be off the land.
Thank you. Merry
Christmas.
Ida Martin

Happy Birthday, Jesus
Isiah 9:6
On Christmas morning let us
remember the meaning of this
special day,
Thanking God for His son, Jesus,
as we bow our head to pray.
Let us share our love and concern
with friends and family, too.
Thank you, dear Jesus, for all of
this and Happy Birthday to you.
As you look down from Heaven,
upon this wonderful land
And read the thoughts of millions
of every child, woman and man.
May our thoughts be of Jesus and
heed His loving call.
And thank you, oh God, for giving
the most wonderful gift of all.
On Christmas morning, as the
gifts are opened, and we gather
around the tree
Spray, oh God, we stop and think
what caused this day to be.
Because of your great love for a
world that had gone astray
You gave us this Christ child Jesus
tbfbecome our truth, our life, our
way.
Let us turn our eyes toward
Heaven and thank our God above
Fot~fvih, us His only son, Jesus,
salvation's plan, eternal love.
And with every gift we open let us
open our hearts and pray.
Thank you, Father, for Jesus and
to Jesy :a Happy Birthday.

If tears could build a stairway,
Greg, and memories a lane, I
would walk right up to Heaven

No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say goodbye.
You were gone before I knew it
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you,
no one will ever know.
But now I know you want me to
mourn for you no more.
To remember all the happy times
life still has in store.
Since you will never be forgotten.
I pledge to'you today, a hallowed
. place within my heart is where you
will always stay.
I can close my eyes, Greg, and feel
your presence around me. Merry
Christmas, Greg Slade, with God I
know you will be.


You too, have a. Merry Christmas

AWARD
Continued from p. 6B

"This is a recognition award
to encourage students to do
well in school and to stay on
track in terms of behavior,"
council member Elaine
Slocum said.
Ryan Brannan, co-chair of
the council, nominated Benitez
for the award after witnessing
the change in behavior the
student underwent after going
through the teen court and
Rock of Ages character
development programs.
"He's done a great job,"
Brannan said. "We're proud of
him."
Benitez was referred to
Brannan, the director of the
teen court program in Bradford
County, because of some
trouble he had gotten into.
Brannan said when he first met
Benitez, he could tell the
student was ready to make a
change in his life.
"As soon as Ryan walked


through the door for his first
interview, I could tell he was
very remorseful for what had
happened," Brannan said. "He
wanted to get the incident
behind him."
One of the sanctions handed
down in teen court waq to
attend the character
development program offered
by the prison ministry Rock of
Ages at First Baptist Church in
Lawtey. There, Benitez
worked with Rock of Ages
missionary Michael Barnette.
"He always had a good
attitude with us," Barnette
said. "When I heard he was
nominated (for the award), I
said that was a very good
choice."
Barnette said Benitez'
mother told Brannan she was
amazed at the difference in her
son's life and how his attitude
had changed.
Benitez said he wanted to
thank everyone who helped
him make those changes,
including Barnette and
Brannan.
"They had faith in me," he

Lady Tornadoes suffer first loss


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
TelIegraph Stagf Writer
The Bradford girls
basketball team had one more
game to win to head into the
holiday break with an
undefeated record, but the
Tornadoes could not get it
done, losing 68-55 to Potter's
House, the top-ranked team in
Class A, on Dec. 19 in Starke.
Bradford (12-1) trailed by as
many as 25 points in the third
quarter, but managed to pull
within 11 points at one point
thanks to outside shooting and
12 points from Khalaa Hill.
Destiny Bass, Tosha Griffin
and Jerica Warren each made a
3-pointer in the final stages of
the third quarter to make the
score 59-41. Warren made
another trey in the fourth
quarter to make it a 13-point
game.
Hill made two free throws
with 3:19 to play to make the
score 64-53, but the Tornadoes
could not get any closer.
Potter's House got off to a
quick start, outscoring the
Tornadoes 18-7 in the first
quarter. The Lions would
increase their lead to 12 points,
but a 3-pointer by Bradford's
Ebony Smith made it a nine-
point game.
However, the Lions made
two consecutive 3-pointers and
went on to take a 36-21 lead at
the half.
Three more 3-pointers in the
third quarter put Potter's
House up 51-32.
Hill led the Tornadoes with
19 points and grabbed 10
rebounds. Griffin and Warren
each had nine points, with
Warren adding four blocked
shots.
Bradford will resume action
on Thursday, Jan. 4, with 4
home game against district
opponent Baker County at 7:30
p.m. The Tornadoes then host

To wrap up ffrst place .in
District 5-3A, the Keystone
Heights boys soccer team
would have to shut down a
Pierson Taylor team that' was

The Indians, led by the
defensive play of Austin
Bennett, Justin Hedding and
Sam Nadler, did just that in a
3-1 win over visiting Taylor on
Dec. 14 that earned them the
number-one seed in next
month's district tournament.
It was the ninth win in a row
for the Indians, who head into


soccer
the Christmas break with a 10-
1-4 record. They improved to
5-0-2 in the district, while
Taylor is now 4-2-2 and 8-3-2
overall.
The Wildcats' only goal
came in the second half when
Yoni Mirandi chipped in a shot
over goalie Michael McLeod,
who was caught out of
position. However, Taylor was
already down 3-0 before that
score.
McLeod finished the match
with five saves.
Offensively, the Indians

22 minutes of the match,
which led to their three goals.
It was Hayden Rodel who
put Keystone on the board
first. He took a cross from
Brad Gober, then put a left-
footed shot off of the top bar
of the goal from 6 yards out
for a 1-0 lead in the ninth
minute.
The Indians were at it again
two minutes later. Sam Nadler
sent a short pass to Gober, who
slid the ball out to Branden
Waters, who then found a
wide-open Ryan Miller in front
of the goal. Miller buried the
ball in back of the net for the
score.
Miller was instrumental in
Keystone's next goal,


recording an assist. He passed
the ball to Justin Hannah, who
beat Taylor goalie Jose
Jimenez in a one-on-one
opportunity. Hannah's seventh
goal of the season put the
Indians up 3-0 in the 22nd
minute.
Keystone had several,
chances to add to its lead in the
second half when headers by
Gober and Miller were just
right of the right post.
The Indians will be back in

BY CLIFF SMELLEY

One coach paid a visit last
week, another is coming this
week. And when they aren't
making visits they are calling
on the phone.
Such is the life of a major
football recruit as Bradford
High School senior Corian
Garrison and his mother, Joann
Walker, are finding out.
Garrison, a 6-4, 295-pound
lineman, recently returned
from an official visit to West
Virginia University. The
school has already made him
an offer and assistant head
coach Rick Trickett made his
third or fourth visit to Starke
on Dec. 7, meeting with both
Garrison and his mother.
Coaches from Central
Florida and South Florida have
also made visits to Starke.
Garrison said he is kind of
ready for all the attention he
has received to end, but he also
admits that he is enjoying it at
the same time.
"The process is kind of
funny," he said. "Everybody is
telling you they want you. I'm
pretty sure they tell other
people the same thing, but it's
kind of fun having the
attention. I can't lie about
that."
Garrison's trip to West
Virginia was his first official
visit to any school. He left on
the morning of Dec. 8 and
returned the night of Dec. 10.
In between, he was shown
around by his host (freshman
defensive lineman Marcus
Broxie, who is from Tampa),
attended a few practices and
met with head coach Rich
Rodriguez at his home.
Garrison said Rodriguez has
never put any pressure on him
to accept West Virginia's
offer. He said Rodriguez told
him to just make the best
decision for himself.
"He's a real down-to-earth,
humble guy," Garrison said of
Rodriguez. "He sat down in his
h iurg room anil talked to each
,,ne, of the prospects
individually."
Garrison will see more of
Rodriguez and the rest of the
Mountaineers staff and players
because he and his mother
have been invited to one of the
team's practices at Sawgrass
prior to the Gator Bowl.
West Virginia was the first
school to seriously show
interest in him, Garrison said.
However, he's not ready to
commit to the Mountaineers.
He still has scheduled visits to
Central Florida (Jan. 5) and
South Florida (Jan. 12).
Garrison said he thinks

either one of the Florida
schools would be a good fit for
him.
"I've done my research on
the computer," he said. "I
looked to see how many
defensive tackles they have
and how many they're
recruiting."
One thing Central Florida
does have going for it is the
fact that 2006 Bradford
graduate James Jamison is on
thd team. Jamison will be.
Garrison's host during next
month's visit.
Garrison also plans to
schedule a visit to South
Carolina. Florida State has
expressed interest as well,
though Bradford defensive
coordinator "' Wve Hoard said
the Seminoles staff is
interested in Garrison playing
offensive guard. He wants to
play defensive tackle, which
West Virginia, Central Florida,
South Florida and South
Carolina will allow him to do.
The University of Florida
did express some interest in
Garrison, but not since the
summer. Also, UF coaches

LIABILITIES INTO ASSETS!


Getting ready to place your
home on the market? If it is in
anything less than "like new"
condition, you'll need a little
reality check before you can
determine a fair asking price.
Since buyers will order one
anyway, you should strongly
consider having an inspection
performed by a licensed profes-
sional before you market your
home.
Why do it now. since the
buyers will pay to do it later?
Ask yourself if you like sur-
prises! If repair issues are
identified, you have time to
decide whether to pay now for
the improvements, or adjust
your asking price accordingly.
The old rule of thumb dictates
that buyers will offer $2 less
for every $1 in needed repairs,
so make your decision with
care.
This is a great opportunity
to take lemons and make some
lemonade! Don't ignore major


repairs that can boost your
home's value and desirability.
If your home is marketed while
in need of a new roof, you've
got a real liability and chal-
lenging sales point. Market
your home with a brand new
roof, and suddenly you've got a
great asset.
Discover problems and
implement solutions before
you make your final pricing
decision. To do otherwise sim-
ply invites unpleasant surprises
and low offers. In today's
highly competitive market, you
need to take proactive steps
that assure your home's value
stands out in the crowd.

wanted Garrison to play on the
offensive line.
What position he plays and
how soon he can step onto the
field and contribute are
important factors when it
comes to choosing a school,
but Garrison said he is also
taking the academics at those
schools seriously, saying, "I
want to make sure I get that
degree."
Don't expect Garrison to
make an early announcement
when he does decide on a
school. He said he wants to
"ride everything out" until
Feb. 1, which is National
Signing Day.
Of course,. Garrison said he
is still uncertain at this point
where he wants to go, but he's
not worried about it.
"I've got faith in God that
wherever I go I'll succeed," he
said.
Though Garrison has already
received a scholarship offer
from a D-I school, he has yet
to reach his potential,
according to his position coach
at BHS.
"We really haven't seen him
at his best yet," Hoard said. "A
year ago, he got hurt-he hurt
his knee. He was coming off of
the knee injury this year. He
wasn't 100 percent all year,
but he was still our best
defensive tackle every week."
There is no doubt Garrison


has the ability to play at a
major Division I school, Hoard
said. The coach should know.
Approximately 30 of the
defensive linemen he has
coached over the years
received scholarships,
including Gerard Warren, who
went to UF 4nd now plays for
the Denver Broncos, and
Letroy Guion, who is currently
playing for FSU.
"I've just been blessed to be
able to coach good kids, and
he's one of them," Hoard said
of Garrison. "The only thing
that will stop him is injuries."
Garrison said thanks go to
God for putting him in position
to succeed, to his mother, who
has pushed him to succeed and
to his coaches for helping him
succeed.
Walker said she wanted to
give thanks to God for
allowing her, as a single
mother, to raise her son and
instill values and morals in
him. She also thanked Hoard
for serving as a mentor for her
son, as well as giving thanks to
her friend Pamela Snider for
her support.

'rhe rishing scene has picked

Speckled perch is our main
ob jective. This beautiful fish is
fun to catch and one o'f my
favorite to eat. All our lakes
and rivers hold specks, and the
best way to'atch them with a

Old-timers take their speck
fishing seriously. Everybody
jig, color,
has their own secret C,
depth and technique.'
The quickest way to catch a
mess of specks is to take a
handful of Beetle Spins, tie on
three or four different colors
and tip them with minnows
(specks are funny fish, biting
white one day and yellow the
next). Once you start catching
specks on a certain color,
change all your rods to that
color.
I like to troll with my big
motor, but the trolling motor is
fine also. I fished with an old-
timer-who is in his 70s-on
Crescent Lake. He believes in
using the outboard motor. He
said the noise attracts the fish.
This is a great time to take a
kid fishing-fishing for specks
is an easy way to fish. You can
spend some quality time with
your children and catch a mess
of specks at the same time.
I told you earlier I like to
take stock in things this time of
year. This is my.favorite time
of the year. I love the
Christmas holiday and
everything that goes with it.
This is my first Christmas

Why join the

Chamber of Commerce?


"Why join the Chamber?" is
the number one question asked
by each business before they
join a chamber of commerce
Such a simple question has
several answers, with each
answer being a potential "hot
button" for the person asking the
question to invest their company
dollars in membership.
Usually, the most important
reason is the member company
receives value for their
investment dollars, This can be
anything of value from special
marketing programs to special
rates between chamber members
on services offered to special
buying power programs on
merchandise, to health


programs.
Secondly, our chamber offers
a multitude of networking,
advertising, and promotional
opportunities that they could not
get else where, not to mention
the business referrals from the
chamber office, our training
seminars and our impact on
community government and
development on the business
owners behalf.
Thirdly, the chamber is the
largest business collective voice
within our community and
because of this we can help a
community in ways a single
business owner can not..
Simply by .paying your dues
you and your employees become


an integral part of our town's
most powerful and effective
volunteer-run organization.
Why are members needed?
The chamber always needs
energetic and enthusiastic
members to help get the job
done. We count on our members
to provide volunteers to help
with not only the small details,
but the "big picture" programs
that will have direct impact on
our city and county's growth.
Take a moment, to look over
our membership application
today and make the first decision
for 2007 be to get involved, Join
today and save the $25 initial
processing fee by mentioning
this article.
