Two subdivisions were approved in Union County in
2006, including the above Providence Pines on C.R.
238, just north of C.R. 241. Approximately 20 other


homes were built independently throughout the
county, contributing possibly to the most residential
growth ever.


'06 brings new homes to UC


Several subdivisions
and many new
homes are being
built.

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
'Times Editor
Looking back on 2006,
Union County has experienced
growth all over the county.
Property Appraiser Steve,
Saunders said that he and his
four'office staff members have
been kept extremely busy with


recording changes in property
this past year.
"The growth Union County
has seen this year has been
more this year than in past
years," he said, "and it has
been continuous."
While the specific number
of residential building permits
obtained this year was not
available as of press time (the
Times will update readers on
this in a following issue),
Union's Board of County
Commissioners approved at
least two subdivisions in 2006,
and new homes can be seen


from Raiford to Providence
and everywhere in between.
The Plantations at
Providence is one subdivision
that is going in at the corner, of
C.R. 238 and C.R. 241.
Being developed by Grand
Legacy LLP, the area is going
to house one- to three-acre
lots. Ponds, picnic areas and
25 acres of preserved open
space are also supposed to be
available to home owners.
According to Grand Legacy,
the project is set to have
approximately 90 homes when
complete.


The second subdivision is
also in Providence, called
Providence Pines. This is a
smaller development, allowing
for about eight new homes.
County Commission
Chairman Wayne Smith said
about the county, "It's really
growing, by leaps and
bounds."
Smith said there are at least
20 new houses being built,
which equates to more. growth
than he's ever seen in his 15
years on the commission.

Emergency


officials urge use


of 911 addresses


BY ALLEN PARRISH
Special to the Times
The Emergency Response
Agencies of Union County are
reminding Union County
citizens to know and use their
911 address.
Although the current 911
address system has been in
place in Union County for
some time now, Emergency
Response Agencies are
continuing an information
campaign to bring awareness
to the use of 911 addresses
when calling for emergency
assistance.
During the past several
months, the .911 call center has
received a growing number of
emergency calls from callers
who either do not know their


911 addresses, provide
outdated rural route addresses
or do not have their 911
address posted properly.
The outdated information or
incorrect information can lead
to unnecessary delays in
locating the correct residence
during an emergency call.
Another area of concern for
emergency response agencies
is the growing number of 911
calls placed using cellular
phones.
Although Union County has
the technology to locate, track
and identify the source of the
911 call placed by a cellular
telephone, the response time
for this process can result in an
unnecessary delay.
See 911, p. 3A.

Lake

Butler

grows in

2006

The city looks to
have commercial and
residential growth in
2007.

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor


The City of Lake Butler has
experienced major growth in
2006.
Like the county, city
officials expect to see this
continue in 2007.
City Manager Richard Tillis,
who is set to retire in August
2007, looks to get a few major
projects going or completed
before he leaves.
The first is the trailhead as
part of the Rails to Trails
project. Tillis filed the
paperwork on this project in
September, and in November,
he said. the city had obtained
the Suwannee River Water
Management District permit
for the trailhead. Things
should be moving forward
soon with this project.
The multipurpose trail is
46.2 miles from Lake Butler to
Palatka and will include. a
paved trail in the middle for
bikers, with an equestrian trail
on the left and a jogging path,
on the right.
Tillis said from Lake Butler
to Keystone Heights is an ideal
spot for the equestrian trail.
The trail will border city
property\ o0t Southwest First
Street, and a trailhead will be
built within the triangle shaped
area (see chart).
The Union Depot (half circle
on plan) was located on the
property back when the
railroad industry was thriving.
"We wanted to bring back
the feeling of a train station,"
Tillis said.
The city is building the
trailhead with a $200,000 grant
from the Florida Recreational
Development Assistance
Program.
It will feature an open
pavilion, trail map area/kiosk
and restrooms. Tillis said the
city also hopes to put in a
locked shower area for people
to use after experiencing the
trails. Everything will also be
handicap accessible.
"The fact it is right in the
middle of town hall is great,"
he said.
The area will be well lit with
"antique lighting," so it will be
attractive for visitors.
"People who use the trail

BY JOE PIETRANGELO
Special to the Times
The Union County Health
Department, located at 495 E.
Main St. in Lake Butler, offers
a number of health and
educational services to the
people of Union County.
Some of these services are at
no cost to residents, and
services that have fees are
either billed through insurance
or are charged on a sliding
scale, based on income. No
one" is refused services because
they are unable to pay for
them.
Primary care is one of the
biggest benefits to Union
County residents. There's a
primary care physician at the
health department two and a
half days per week and a
registered nurse on staff five
days per week. Primary care is
available to everyone, and
patients can usually be seen
without a long wait for an
appointment.

'on this by obtaining a masters
degree from the University of
North Florida and has done
some post graduate.work there
in the field of learning
disabilities.
Upon hearing about being
named the Teacher of the Year
for LBES, Vandiver said, "I
was shocked because I've only
been here for three years."
She said, though, that she
could not be the teacher she is
without her co-workers.
"The kindergarten teachers
at'the elementary school are
very supportive in the three
years I've been here," she said.
Now attending Fellowship
Baptist in Raiford, Vandiver
said she became a teacher
because she always enjoyed
working with children at her
church.
"I wouldn't want to do
anything else," she said. "I like
to see the light bulb come on

a concept or a skill." t..
While trying to spark that
interest is not always easy,

kids at the level they're at," she

Make 2007 a

year for
energy
efficiency

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
The Florida Public Service
Commission is encouraging
residents to make energy
efficient resolutions for the
new year. According to the
U.S. Department of Energy,
the typical U.S. family spends
more than $1,600 a year on
home utility bills.
Unfortunately, a large portion
of that energy is wasted.
"By making energy-efficient
choices, consumers can reduce
energy consumption, cut dosts
and strengthen energy security
for Florida for years to come,"
said PSC Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar.
Here are eight simple energy
resolutions for 2007:
Insulate your home. The
load on heating and cooling
equipment can be reduced by
as much as 30 percent by
investing in insulation.
Draft-proof windows, doors
and other air leaks. Move a lit
candle around the frames and
sashes of your windows. If the
flame dances around, you need
caulking and/or weather
stripping.
Use blinds or shades for
large windows situated in the
east or west sides of the house.
The addition of awnings also
decreases energy consumption.
Wrap water heaters in an
insulation blanket. Heating
water accounts for about 20
percent of all the energy used
in homes.
Buy energy-efficient
appliances. Appliances that
meet federal efficiency
guidelines have an Energy Star
label on the product or
packaging.


so far is kindergarten.
"I love teaching young
children to read," she said.
Vandiver enjoys reading and
making crafts, she also likes to
further herself with
educational training.
,During the summer, she
spent three weeks learning
methods on how to become a
better teacher.
She recently became a'
National Board Certified
teacher.
The process took
approximately nine months,
she said, but it allowed her to
re-examine her teaching
methods and to become more
focused on how to better
facilitate learning.
Vandiver is also holds
certifications in Early
Childhood and English for
Speakers of another Language.
She is presently working on.
her reading endorsement and
should be finished in April
2007.

LBES School-
Related Employee
,.of the Year
Darleen Ball is a
paraprofessional for pre-
kindergarten exceptional
students education at LBES.
She assists in the pre-K
classroom of teacher Shanna
Taylor.
Ball has been employed with
LBES for six and a half years,
holding different positions
within that time.
Starting out as a reading


Set the thermostat to 68
degrees in the winter. Wear a
sweater if you want to be
warmer. A heavy long-sleeved
sweater adds about 3.7 degrees
to body temperature.
In the summer, set the
thermostat at 78 degrees and
use fans to circulate the air.
Every degree
counts-lowering the
thermostat to 76 degrees
increases energy consumption
by 35 percent.

interventionist, she then was a
personal care specialist. This
involved spending an entire
year with one student who
needed special attention.
In the job she holds now,
Ball has to help feed the ESE
students breakfast and lunch in
the classroom. It also involves
a wide variety of other care
and learning activities that
special needs children must
have.
"I had no idea about it until
they put me here," Ball said of
her job. "Then I really liked
it."
Ball received training to
become a teacher's aide and
holds other certificates,
including ones in sign
language and ESE, with
special training in personal
care, autism and the reading
initiative program.
One training class she took,
called "A Star is Born," helped
tailor her skills on how to
specifically work with disabled
children.
Her job requires her not only
to work with one teacher and
students, but she has to rely on-
the help of the ESE director
and the school's speech and
physical therapists.
She said they keep her
informed of training she can
use to better help the students
learn.
"We try to extend what
they're doing in those classes,"
she said about the therapists.
Ball, like Vandiver, said she"-
was "very honored, but
surprised" to receive an
employee of they year award.

This fire hydrant on N.E. First Ave. in Lake Butler may have been blocked from
view by the light pole, but the blue reflectors indicate to firefighters where the
hydrants are located. There are blue reflectors placed on Main Street and then
again on the side street to direct emergency responders to the hydrants.
Approximately 300 blue reflectors will be placed within the city limits of Lake
Butler.

will know they're in a safe
area. They're in a well-lit
area," Tillis said.

Fire station, park
and more in the
works for LB
Another part of the city's
goal in 2007 will be to build a
fire station.
When the new city hall
building was constructed, it
did not have an area for a fire
station like the old building on
Main Street did.
The fire trucks are currently
housed at the building
department near the water
tower on S.R. 121.
Tillis said the new station
will be located near the old
apparel building with a four- to
five-bay fire house.
He said this was a good
location because it had "easy
access."
"Being off Main Street a
block I don't think is a bad
thing," he said.
In addition, the city is
actively in talks with RMC to
take over its waste water
treatment facility, which will
eliminate the redundancy of
two plants.
It is also in the city's long-
range plan to.develop another
park, possibly near,the schools
by the old waste water
treatment plant.

Commercial
.growth
Lake Butler will see a new
CVS/pharmacy begin


construction.
To be labeled store number
5172, it will be located at the
corner of S.R. 100 and S.R.
121, adjacent to the Lake
Butler Hospital/Hand Surgery
Center.
This will provide
convenience for patients to
leave the hospital and to pick
up prescriptions if they choose


to use that pharmacy.
The property was bought by
the hospital from the county
three years ago. The hospital
then sold it to a developer for
CVS.
The site plan (see chart) was
approved in September for
4.08 acres.
The current, CVS is around
4,000 square feet, but the new


facility will expand to 11,495
square feet.
The city has annexed the
property and will expand water
and sewer services to that
hospital. The hospital is .yet to
be annexed into the city.
A feature of the new CVS
will be a drive-through
pharmacy.
"They're (CVS) making
quite an investment in the
community," said Tillis, who
estimated they were spending
approximately $2 million on
the building alone.

Residential
growth
A major project on the.
residential side of growth
within the city limits of Lake
Butler is Butler Townhomes.
Located behind Karen's
Kwik Stop, the main entrance
of the town homes will be on
the street across from the Lake
Butler Hospital ER.
Maggie Dukes Wetzel, the
managing partner of Butler
Townhomes LLC, now has a
fully-furnished model of one
of the townhomes completed
for by-appointment-only tours.
Another step completed for
the project was on 'Oct. 26,
when the final plat for .the
townhomes was approved in a
4-0 vote in a special meeting
of the Lake Butler City
Commission (one
commissioner was absent from
the meeting).
Butler Townhomes began in
2004 as the vision of developer
Wetzel, partner Betty
Athanasakos and site engineer
Paolo Salvador,
Salvador said the project
was created out of need.
"We asked (the city) what
was needed, and they said
housing," he said.
Wetzel said, "We're hoping
the locals will take interest."
With in-house financing
available for qualified people,
Wetzel said she thinks
residents will be pleasantly
surprised at the quality of the
townhomes.
Badcock Home Furnishings
& More supplied the furniture
for the model, and Wetzel said
people will now be able to
picture the place as their home.
I While the whole project is


In a special meeting of the Lake Butler City Commission, the final plat for the

Butler Townhomes project was signed Oct. 26. Present were engineer Jerome
Kelly, Commissioner Fletcher Myers, Commissioner Leroy Stalvey, Carl Dennard

Paolo Salvador, Ray Crawford and City Manager Richard Tillis.


expected to bring
approximately 30 units to Lake
Butler, the first building of six
townhomes is completely
finished.
The project includes a
privacy fence, and an
Olympic-sized swimming pool
to be completed soon.
As with most developments,

Local pastor feeling fine after experiencing


BY DUWAYNE BRIDGES
Special to the Times
Steve Hutcheson was born
and raised in Jacksonville. He
served in the armed forces in
the U.S. Navy. He's a father of
three, grandfather, and devoted
husband for the past 41 years.
He is married to Helen
Hutcheson. She is the apple of
his eye. Steve and Helen have
a special relationship. They are
soul mates. In May 1966,
Steve gave his heart to God
and became a Christian.
Several years later, he was
called by God into full-time
ministry. He became a Holy
Ghost preacher. Steve and
Helen have traveled all over
the United States evangelizing
in their 24-foot trailer.
They have preached in
Georgia, Alabama, Indiana and
Florida. Steve and Helen
moved to Lake Butler in 1977.
Steve continued preaching
revivals, conducting services
and doing many other things
for the Lord. Struggling to
make it, Steve took another job
in town.
He became employed with
Department of Corrections.
After 18 years of service,
Steve retired in July 2003.
Two years ago, Steve
became ill and was passing
blood. With the insistence of
his wife, Helen, Steve went to
the doctor.
The doctor asked, "How
long have you been bleeding?"
Steve replied, "Just a few
days."
The truth was that Steve had
been hemorrhaging for weeks.
Steve's blood pressure was
quite low, and he looked
extremely pale from losing so
much blood. The doctor
diagnosed Steve and placed
him in the hospital.
He was taken immediately
*to North Florida Regional
Hospital in Gainesville and
was taken into surgery the
following day. There it was
discovered that he desperately
needed four units of blood,
even before surgery began.
Steve's blood type is 0
negative.
Unfortunately, the hospital
did not have four units of 0
negative blood. The frantic
search for blood was on. By
the grace of God, enough
blood was obtained.
Steve continued to bleed and
was in danger of dying. While
Steve was lying in the

Christian Revival Center in
Sanderson. It is located on
C.R. 229, one mile from the
Union-Baker County line. He
is an associate pastor and
Sunday school teacher.
Every Sunday morning,
Steve teaches class at 10 a.m.
in Sanderson. Steve wants to
invite everyone to come to
class. Currently, Steve is
teaching out of the book of
John. Steve and Helen also
help. out with the church's food
and clothing ministries.
Pastor DuWayne Bridges of
Sanderson Christian Revival
Center said, "I have been

operating room, before
receiving any narcotics, Steve
had a visitor that would change
his life forever.
The loss of blood had caused
Steve to feel sleepy and
lethargic, but suddenly Steve
was alert. Steve could hear a
rustling sound behind him on
the right side. The room was lit
up with the presence of an
angel.
"I could see the outline of
the angel, but I could not see
his face. The outline of the
angel looked like sparklers that
were lit. I could feel the
presence of God!" The angel
spoke to Steve and said,
"When you came to Lake
Butler, you made God some
promises. You promised God
that you would preach. We
knew how to get your
attention. We put you flat on
your back. We have not
forgotten the promises that you
have made. Do what God told
you to do!"
He was not hallucinating. It
was not a mistake. It was not
the effect of narcotics. Steve
Hutcheson had a real
encounter with an angel.
The word "angel" means
messenger. The angel
delivered the message. Steve
was under a command to
"preach the gospel" and obey
the Lord.
The following day the
doctor came to check on his
patient. Steve had already
awoken the next morning. His
wife and the nurse tried to
keep Steve lying down, but
Steve arose from the bed
anyway.
He told them, "I've got to go


and preach the gospel." Steve
could not lie down. The angel
told him to get busy. Steve's
wife and the nurse had no idea
what happened the day before.
The nurse replied, "You are
going to be here for five to six
days or until the doctor
releases you. You are not
going anywhere!"
Steve was not in any pain.
To the surprise of the doctor
and nurse, Steve was feeling
great.
"I feel good. I'm not in any
pain," said Steve to the doctor.
The doctor was amazed. This
was quite unusual.
Steve believes that it was
God, supernaturally healing his
body. Miraculously, the doctor
released him home that
afternoon.
That night Steve slept at
home in his recliner. That
night he heard and felt the
presence of the angel again. He
knew that God was confirming
to him what happened in the
hospital. In the last several
years Steve has been preaching
the gospel of the Lord Jesus
Christ. He has been preaching
at churches, conducting
funerals, and conducting
revivals.
Steve recently helped a
church in Brooker for the past
year when their pastor became
ill. They were in need. Steve
wants to fulfill his call by
serving the Lord with all of his
heart.
Steve has a radio program in
Lake Butler called, "Calvary
Community Outreach." It is on
the air on Sundays at 1:30 p.m.

Dear Library Supporter,
The Union County Public Library is getting ready to begin its
construction project for a new, larger facility. In an effort to raise funds
for this much-needed building, the library is accepting donations for
parts of the picture shown on the next page. The painting that was
created for this project (painted by Marie Wiggs Tyre) will be
translated into a giant mural on the meeting room wall of the new
library building. It is estimated that each animal on the mural will be
life-size or larger. Listed below are.the prices for each item. Just think
of the lasting benefits that you can have with your small investment -
the name of your business listed in the library for years, your family's
name showing support of the library and our community's education,
dedication in memory of a loved one, and much more...
Each item listed will have a plaque that corresponds to the item.

Other measures of rezoning
by the county and the city have
also allowed more homes to be
built on smaller lots of land.
Billy Woodington, of Vision
Realty of Lake Butler, said
after a bubble in recent years,
buyers can presently expect the
market to be in a more stable
position. Fore more
information on the housing
market in Union County, visit

m or call (866) 496-4950.

Commercial
growth
As for the commercial side,
there have not been many new
types of businesses, although
some businesses experienced
relocations and remodeling.
One example is Roberts
Land & Timber. The business
used to be located on Lake
Avenue in Lake Butler.
However, in November
2005, owner Avery Roberts
began remodelling a building
on S.R. 100, formerly Owens
Illinois and then Plum Creek.
Plum Creek moved to a new
facility on C.R. 238 in 2005,
which made way. for Roberts
to move his business there.
The renovations took
approximately six months.
"We. needed the space
tremendously," Roberts said.
-The newly remodeled
building gives the business
about three times the space.
Additional benefits include
extra parking, a shop and a
yard. Roberts said these things
were non-existent at the old
location on Lake Avenue.
-Another example was Butler
Seafood House & Grille on
Lake Butler.
A major remodeling project

made the business more
handicap accessible, as well as
redecorating the interior. The
restaurant reopened for
business in July.
County will work
on debt in 2007
Chairman Smith said the
county did not take on too
many major projects for 2006,
and it will be the same in 2007.
"We built two regular
storage buildings by the
collection center on (S.R.)
121," Smith said.
Through legislative funding,
he hopes to receive money to
buy shelving for these storage
units.
The county also paved three
major highways, which were
C.R. 229, C.R. 239A and C.R.
18,
In 2007, the major project
will be building the $1 million
library.
Even with this, Smith said
the county's main goal will be
to work on "paying down
debt."
In November 2006, the
county commission voted
Smith in as chairman (he had
previously held this position).
Commissioner Morris Dobbs
was voted in as vice-chairman
(this position was previously
held by Commissioner Karen
Cossey).

on her husband, Bob Clayton,
to encourage her during times
the Gators are struggling or a

Clayton, who normally pulls

Instead, Perkins may have to

Sellers are competing for
buyers these days. Actually,
sellers are always competing
-against each other, trying to
offer the best value in hopes of
securing a full-price offer.
Such offers usually come to
sellers whose homes are in
iideFr66ndition anid priced, at,
or below, fair market value.
While it's critical to get
your home in tip-top shape
before your listing, care needs
to be taken when you're consid-
ering the impact of remodeling
and renovating. Homeowners
who over-improve run the risk
of not being able to recoup
their investment, particularly if
they find they need to sell very
soon after completing such
work.
Homeowners are encour-
aged to contact a real estate
professional, who can conduct
a comparable sales analysis,
providing important informa-
tion about remodeling's impact
on sales value.


A report published last year
by Remodeling Magazine and
REALTOR Magazine gives
some clues as to where to best
spend your improvement dol-
lars. Upscale siding and mid-
range bathroom upgrades both
can recoup 100% (or more!) of
the investment cost. Even
minor kitchen remodeling sees
99%.of its cost recovered at
sale time.
Basically, stick to designs
that will appeal to a majority of
buyers, since you can't be sure
that you'll find that unique
buyer who will appreciate the
more exotic tastes you might
enjoy. Be proactive, be practi-
cal, and be prepared to offer a
great value!

The keys to. success for the
Gators, as Perkins sees it, is
how .their- defense performs
against the Ohio State offense,
which is led by Heisman
Trophy winner Troy Smith.
"I think our defense has to
play really, really good,"
Perkins said, adding that.the
quarterback tandem of Chris

Florida fans share thoughts on BCS title game


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Those who bleed orange and
blue have not been this happy
during a football season since
the 1997 Sugar Bowl. That
was when the 1996 edition of
the Florida Gators wrapped tip
their season by defeating rival
FSU and winning the
program's first-ever national
championship.
Ten years later, the Gators
have put themselves in
position to win their second
title when they play Ohio State


on Monday, Jan. 8. Several
area fans can see similarities
between this year's team and
that '96 team.
Starke attorney Dudley
Hardy remembers how the '96
team needed a couple of upsets
to play for the title. Those
happened in the form of Texas
beating Nebraska in their
conference championship
game and Ohio State defeating
Arizona State in the Fiesta
Bowl.
"The same kind of thing
happened this year," Hardy
said, referring to Michigan

first losing to Ohio State, then
Southern Cal losing to UCLA.
Barry Warren, an
investigator with the Starke
Police Department, said he-
feels both 1996 and 2006
teams have comparable talent.
The difference is that the '96
team had more experienced
players, which makes this
year's run at the national
championship a pleasant
surprise for fans.
"It may be destiny," Warren
said.
Neither Warren nor Hardy
could envision the Gators
playing for the national
championship this year. In
fact, Union County Sheriff
Jerry Whitehead, a UF fan
himself, said he wanted to
know if there was any other

Land and Timber in Union
County, said it is the one trait
that gives the Gators a chance
to win.
"I'm hoping Ohio State
hasn't seen that kind of speed,"
Roberts said.
Gordon Smith, chief of the
Starke Police Department,
said, "I just don't think they've
seen the total defensive
package they're going to see in
Florida."
: The defense will be going up
against this year's Heisman
Trophy winner in Troy Smith.
Hardy and Whitehead both
said the key is for the defense
to keep Smith in the pocket
and not let him have a lot of
time to throw the ball.
Whitehead' said the Gators
need to force Smith to throw
short passes and force the
Buckeyes to put: together
lengthy drives.
Whitehead thinks there's a
misconception that Ohio
State's offense is of the old
three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-
dust variety, but that's not the
Buckeyes' style. They score on
big plays, he said.
"If we can stop that,"
Whitehead said, "I think
Florida has a good chance of
winning."
Several fans were also in
agreement that quarterback
Leak's play on offense will be
pivotal.
"I think that'Chris Leak has
to play within himself and not
make crucial mistakes," Hardy
said.
Smith and Whitehead said
they think Leak will step up
and play big;

(Tressel) really does what
(former head coach) Woody
Hayes used to do-keep the
team focused." Clayton said.
The Gators are no
"slouches," Clayton said,
adding that they have a good
quarterback in Leak and a
group of quick receivers. Still,
he is confident the Buckeyes
have the right head coach to
deliver the. program's second
national title in four years.
"I see us winning," Clayton
said. "I have complete faith in'
T re s s e l." ; '- . .
Clayton is predicting' Ohio
State to win by a touchdown,
though he added he hopes the
margin of victory is greater.
Perkins, on the other hand,
sees a much closer game. She
believes it will be a high-
scoring affair, but said she
thinks the Gators will win by
three.
Neither *person, though, is
-willing to back up his or her
prediction with a friendly
wager.
"He's afraid he'll lose, and
I'm afraid I'll lose," Perkins
said.
What you can bet on is that
there will be some good-
natured teasing during the
game. As Perkins put it, that
will be half the fun..
Clayton said it will be a true
test of the marriage, but he was
only joking. Neither he nor
Perkins will take things too
seriously, no matter the
outcome.
"It's only a game," Perkins
said.

"I think the Gators have
a chance to beat (Ohio
State) because of their
speed."
-Avery Roberts


FANS
Continued from p.2B
"He's due to have a big
game," Whitehead said.
Especially when he has
taken quite a bit of flak from
Florida fans despite posting
solid numbers and breaking
several school records, Smith
said.
"I think it's his time to
finally shine," Smith said.
For Leak to be successful,
Warren said the offensive line
must keep pressure off of him.


Deac Story, a Bradford High
School teacher who played on
the Gators' 1996 national
championship team, agreed
with Warren, saying he wants
to see Leak get off to a good
start. He does not want to see
the quarterback have a low
completion percentage with no
touchdowns in the first half.
"We don't want to have to
come from behind," Story said,
though he added the Gators are
certainly capable of doing so.
If Leak has time to throw the
ball, he has as good a group of
receivers as any quarterback to
throw to, according to Story
and Warren. Ohio State wide
receiver Ted Ginn Jr. receives
a lot of attention, but Warren
said the Gators have a receiver
similar in Dallas Baker. Baker
has 56 receptions for 897 yards
and nine touchdowns, while
Ginn has 59 receptions for
781 yards and .nine
touchdowns.
"We've got some of the best
receivers in the country," Story
said.
Still, listening to some
people on television talk, the
Gators don't seem to have a
chance, Story said. There's
nothing wrong with talking
highly of Ohio State, he said.
The Buckeyes are a good team
and deserving of praise, but
they're not unbeatable, Story
said. As far as he's concerned,
the Buckeyes better be ready
to play.
"We didn't accidentally go

Starke Chief of Police Gordon Smith shows off some
of the UF items in his office, including several items
autographed by such Gators as Jack Youngblood.
Smith said he expects quarterback Chris Leak to shine
in a Gators' win in the BCS title game. "It's going to be
Leak's game," he said.


most difficult schedule in the
NCAA," Story said.
Warren feels that schedule
will benefit Florida, which has
played more bowl teams than
Ohio State.
Whitehead agreed on that
being a factor.
"(Ohio State's) schedule was
a little softer than Florida's,"
he said.
Still, there seemed to be


many people who thought
Michigan should've played
Ohio State in this game. That's
why Smith said he enjoyed
watching the Wolverines lose
the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.
"I can't lie," Smith said. "I
got a little grin on my face
when Michigan got beat up by
USC."
Smith said a little
controversy was to be


expected. Even if there was a
playoff, someone would be
complaining about who got left
out.
That's why Roberts wasn't
surprised to hear some of the
backlash against his team
jumping Michigan in the BCS
standings.
"I think you're going to hear
some of that no matter what,"
he said. "The point is, (the
Gators are) in the game."
So now that they're in the
game, how do these fans feel
about their team's chances.
Well, they're either very
confident or just refuse to pick
against their team.
"If I didn't expect them to
win, I wouldn't travel 3,000
miles," said Hardy, who will
be attending the game. He
made an original prediction of
UF winning by a score of 24-
21, before realizing that would
mean Hetland would have to
make a field goal.
Laughing, he amended his
score: UF 28, OSU 21.
Warren and Whitehead both
predict a UF win by the score
of 30-24, while Smith sees the
Gators coming out on top by a
score of 35-21.
Roberts sees the game as
being a little closer, admitting
that the Gators certainly aren't
going to have an easy time of
it.
"I think it's going to be a
struggle because Ohio State
has a well-rounded team,"
Roberts said. Still, he's picking
the Gators by a score of 31-28.
Story said he refrains from


"I tell you what, Ohio
State better be ready to
play, too. We didn't
accidentally go 12-1
with the number-one
most difficult schedule
in the NCAA."
-Deac Story
picking scores, because there
are so many variables to take
into consideration. There's no
question about who he wants
to win, however, and he does
not care if the Gators win by
only a point, having to fend off
a late Ohio State rally.
"A win is a win," he said.
Win or lose, the Gators have
had a season to remember,
Smith said.
"I'm proud of the Gators,"
he said. "If we lose, I'm still
going to be proud. We pulled
off a miracle season."

Geraldine Ragan was born in Orange, Texas, and was raised in southwest
Louisiana. As a teenager, she accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior. She then
asked God to use her life to glorify Him. Overnight, Geraldine became a
ventriloquist and believes her talent is a gift from God. She began using a
Jerry Mahoney figure and won many honors with her ventriloquism.
SAfter graduation from high school, Geraldine was offered a fantastic career
with Disneyland of California, but declined in order to dedicate her life and
talent full time to Christian service. She joined the E.J. Daniels Evangelistic
Association and traveled with his team for six years, performing in large
citywide crusades.
In 1972, Geraldine married PGA professional golfer, Dave Ragan, who was a
member of the Jerry Spencer Evangelistic Association. Geraldine and Dave
traveled with the Spencer team for five years. Dave later served in two

Last week we reviewed the animosity
that existed between the American
Colonists and England prior to the
Revolutionary War. Using this story
as background, we will discuss the
issue freedom of speech in an effort
to understand its importance in a free
society.
While this freedom is preserved in
the Constitution, it is attacked daily
by people_.who- should know better
and interpreted in strange ways (at
times) by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The freedoms we enjoy, indeed, the
American Constitution and Bill of
Rights are descendents of the English
Magna Carta, circa 1215 A.D., which
in turn was preceded by the Charter of
Liberties. In fact the Magna Carta isn't
a single document, but rather a series
of papers outlining civil liberties. It
was originally created because of
disagreements between Pope Innocent
III, King John and his English barons
about the rights of the king.
The Magna Carta required the king
to,,renounce certain rights, respect
certain legal procedures and accept
that the will of the king could be
bound by law. This great document is
the basis of freedom enjoyed by people
around the world, and Americans
are especially indebted to it for the
Constitution under which we live.
In building a structure, an architect
will prepare plans according to the
needs of the owner or tenant, but even
with careful planning, changes are
often required. When the project is
completed, the contractor holds an "as
is" meeting to point out any changes
made in construction that vary trom
the original plans. When changes
are recognized and incorporated into
the original drawings, the building
owner has a detailed blue print of the
building as it actually stands.
Unlike building plans that are drawn
by the thousands, constitutions are


(usually) written infrequently, thus a
constitution may have sections that are
outdated by the time it is published.
Once approved, a constitution cannot
have changes in the text; therefore
changes are made by the use of
amendments following stringent legal
procedures.
We are all familiar with the date
July 4, 1776, as being the date the
Declaration of Independence was
signed,' but few realize the American
Constitution wasn't completed and
signed until March 4, 1789, some 13
years later.
(The original document was sent to
the states for ratification in 1787; they
were ratified and returned in 1791).
People realized immediately that
the Constitution did not provide
specifically for certain personal'
rights that they had come to expect,
necessitating changes to meet with
constituents'desires for personal rights
to be firmly rooted in the Constitution.
Twelve amendments were proposed,
with 10 approved and known as the
Bill of Rights.
The U.S. Constitution has been
amended 26 times, including the Bill
of Rights, since its adoption.
The Florida Constitution provides for
a Constitutional Revision Committee
to meet for the purpose of re\ rising or
rewriting the State Constitution each
20 years. The current Constitution
provides for voters to amend the
Constitution by securing a substantial
number of votes to get it on the ballot
and then receive 50 percent plus one
of the votes in the general election
to have it adopted. This year Florida
voters approved an amendment to
require 60 percent of voters' approval
for adoption, in an effort to preclude
cluttering the Constitution with issues
better handled by the Legislature.

A former Bradford County
minister who was already on
probation for using the Internet
to solicit minors for sex, was
arrested Dec. 18 on a Bradford
warrant for-sexual battery on a
child.
Aaron D. West, 50, now of
Beverly Hills, Fla., was
arrested in Citrus County on
the Bradford warrant that
resulted from an ongoing
investigation into incidents that
occurred in Bradford County
during 2004.
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office Investigator Ron Davis
reported that BCSO's Cpl.
Robert Smith has kept in touch
with West's probation officer,
and through that contact
developed additional
information that ultimately led
to the arrest Dec. 18.
Davis said West is accused
of having attempted to have
sex with a 15-year-old minor
female. He said investigators
also have reason to believe
there may be a second child
victim involved in the 2004
incidents.
Davis said the second victim
is thought to have been in or
