3 churches vandalized near Raiford


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
A total of four churches in
Bradford and Union counties
have been vandalized, and
suspects are being sought by
authorities in both counties.
At the three locations in
Union County, )church
members returned to the
buildings on Jan. 2 and Jan. 6
to find either an expletive, an
upside down cross, an upside
down star inside a circle or
male genitalia sprayed painted
across their church buildings,
according to Union County
Sheriffs Office reports.
The damage, committed
with white spray paint, was
believed to be done on the
night of New Year's, Monday,
Jan. 1, or in the early morning
hours of Tuesday, Jan. 2, said
sheriff's Investigator Mac
Johns. Juveniles are suspected.
Johns said this "rash of
criminal mischief" has
occurred in the Raiford area at

FWC refreshes fish attractor in Lake Butler


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
If you are a fisherman, the
odds just got a little bit better
that you'll catch something in
Lake Butler.
Last and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) fisheries
biologists Gary Byerley,.Dan
Dorosheff and Brian
Hilton'-armed with 60 or so
Christmas trees and cinder
blocks-came to the lake to
build up the fish attractor.
The Christmas trees, left
over from. the holidays, were
donated to the FWC by Lowes
of Lake City.
Byerley and Dorosheff, with
the help of inmate labor, tied a
cinder block to each tree.
The trees were loaded onto a
boat and submerged near the
northeast corner of the lake,
where the FWC has a marked
fish attractor buoy at what is
believed to be the deepest part
of the lake.
Dorosheff said, "The
purpose of these (fish
attractors) is to create a habitat


for fish."
Christmas trees, like other
brush piles, attract fish, which
can hide in them from larger
predators.. Smaller organisms
can also grow on the trees, and
fish are attracted to this new
source of food.
At one time, the lake had
three one-fourth-acre fish
attractors.
"The bnes that were put in
this lake were put here 10 to
15 years ago," Byerley said.
Because the lake is a low
fish producer, the attractors are
needed to concentrate what
fish there are to one location.
Dorosheff said, "It makes
fish easier to find."
And with fish that are easier
to find, fishermen have a
greater chance of bringing
home a good catch.
Byerley indicated that over a
period of many years, the lake
would eventually be a higher
producer due to the inflow of
nutrients.

See FISH, p.3A

UCHS names Davis as 1 FISH

of year's best employees Continued from p. 1A


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
The non-instructional staff
voted Darla Davis as the
School-Related Employee of
the Year for Union County
High School.
Davis is the high school's
registrar.
If it has anything to do with
.grades or data, she handles it.
Her job includes inputting
grades into the computer
system for the entire school,
printing grade reports,
enrolling or withdrawing
students, data entry and
certifying and sending off
student transcripts to colleges.
Davis began working in the
Union County School District
in 1993. Of those 13 years, the
last six have been at UCHS.
She also works for the adult
school in the county as a
recruiter and registrar.
Davis began her career in
Union at the district office. She
was also a substitute teacher
and worked at Tiger Den Day
Care.
"I love the atmosphere and
the community," she said. "I
don't think I would be happy
outside Union County."
Davis said her favorite part
of her job is the students.
"I like dealing with the


Daria Davis
students and being involved
with the kids," she said.
Davis is married to her
husband, Bobby Davis, who is
retired from the prison.
They have two sons, who
both graduated from the high
school.
Justin, 21, is now attending
Santa Fe'Community College
and studying radiology.
.Brandon, 19, is at Lake City
Community College on a full
baseball scholarship.
The UCHS Teacher of the
Year and the middle school
award winners will be profiled
in next week's issue.


The FWC used to have a
full-time crew whose only job
was to travel around Florida
rebuilding brush piles in lakes.
However, the task is only
done now two to three times a
year.
The fisheries biologists said
their next fish attractors would.
be the lakes at Camp Blanding.

Biologists: No
harm from fish
parasites
Another issue Byerley and
Dorosheff said they work on is
fish that contain parasites or
worms.
"We get a lot of calls from
people asking if the fish are
safe to eat," Byerley said.
Fish parasites are relatively
common in Florida lakes. They
can be found under the skin, in
the meat or in the organs of
fish.
While this may bug your
appetite, the biologists say the
parasites aren't harmful to
humans.
FWC recommends cooking
the fish to kill the parasites,
but Byerley said, "A person

Dorosheff explained that

Byerley said most of the
worry comes from the thought
of eating a parasite or worm,
not the danger of the organism.
"It's a mental thing," he said.
"It's not something to be
worried about."

BY LINDSVY KIRKLAND

Ahoy, mateys!

The theme of the day was

In four 20-minute sessions,
employers gave students an
idea of what they did for the
community, the education and
experience necessary for their
jobs, positive and negative
aspects of the job and the
occupation's future outlook.
Students also had the
opportunity to ask questions
about careers they were
interested in pursuing one day.
Careers presented included
:)f commercial airline pilot, crime
ls. scene investigator, correctional
as officer, helicopter pilot, fish
:k and game officer, small engine
repair, orthodontist and more.
LBMS Career Day
coordinator Chrystal Woodall
said the experience gave
s students "a vision and a map
h for their future endeavors."


"Ahoy, young mateys!" Amy Abraham (left) and

Plane's
emergency
landing leaves
2 men injured

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
-A 1940s airplane made an
emergency landing in a field
near Worthington Springs on
Saturday at 11:20 a.m., leaving
its pilot and passenger injured.
The plane was occupied by
John Gordon, 74, and Donald
Riley, 77, both of Lake City.
According to Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead, after emergency
medical personnel and law
enforcement arrived, the two
men were taken to Shands at
the University of Florida.
Riley and Gordon had
stopped at the airport for a fly--


601 E. Call St.
Hwy. 230, Starke


in breakfast. Upon taking off
again, they began experiencing
engine trouble.
The plane only had One
engine, and when it began to
fail, Gordon, the pilot, headed
back for the airport.
The two men never made it
that far and had to make an
emergency landing in a field
northwest of the airport, near
C.R. 239A.
Captain Garry Seay said the
plane crash landed at a 45-
degree angle and that both men
received minor injuries from
the crash.
The sheriffs office said an
airborne airplane that was
close to Riley and Gordon saw
the accident and reported the
crash.
The Federal Aviation
Administration is investigating
the accident.
Further information on the
condition of Riley and Gordon
could not be found as of press
time.

Editorial/Opinion

Thursday, Jan. 11, 2007 Page 4B




Our most precious freedom


The original U.S. Constitution
was, and remains, an outstanding
document, but it wasn't perfect because
it omitted specific freedoms required
by colonists who had lived under
harsh regimes and now, in the new
world, wanted a number of personal
rights embedded in its charter.
Amendments one through 10,
. known as the Bill, of Rights, were
added immediately. Since that time
(1791), 16 additional amendments,
for a total of 26, have been added.
The first amendment to the
Constitution states that Congress
cannot pass any law making any
religion the official religion of the
United States, or take away the
freedom to worship as one pleases.
Congress cannot take away or restrict
freedom of speech or freedom of the
press. Citizens may protect themselves
against damaging insults spoken or
written about them by civil lawsuits,
and no one may advocate (call for) the
overthrow of the government by war.
Congress may not take away the
right of peaceful assembly (gathering
of people). Riots or mobs may
be broken up, since they are not
peaceful. The rights of petitioning
the government for any redress
(correction) wanted made by it, or any
grievance (complaint) made against
it, may not be suspended.
The freedoms written into the Bill
of Rights may or may not be listed
in order of importance, but the first
two, freedom of religion and freedom
of speech, certainly ranked among
the most important in the minds of
the Constitution writers, and may
continue to rank numbers one and two
in the minds of Americans today.
Freedom of speech is ranked first
in this essay because the silencing of
ministers would 'preclude the freedom
jf.ji l Ugo. can f.ri igin. flourish
where discussion of its tenets iq
barred?
The same sentence that provides
for freedom of speech also provides
for freedom of the press, two sides
of the same coin contained in the
first amendment. Inseparable, neither
would be possible without the other.
In the late 1700s, the printing of
pamphlets on every subject was
-widespread, --om-ewhat similar to
commercials on radio and television
today. Fiery orators spoke on every
subject, as did religious leaders of the
day, keeping the populace informed,
often with conflicting views, on any
and all subjects.


Early on, colonists recognized
the necessity of widespread
communication and required their
delegates to include constitutional
provisions rather than legislative
action to protect their interests.
Any restriction placed on mankind
is going to be tested, and freedom of
speech and press is tested daily by
individuals and groups for their own
reasons. Almost daily, and particularly
during political campaigns, candidates
and office holders say things better
left unsaid, and often regret the
comment.
Some officials have said things
which they knew would cross the line,
but feel an apology will suffice for the
injured party. Those people believe
the old adage, "It is easier to get
forgiveness than to get permission,"
which does work at times, but not
always as some have found.
Some high-ranking officials have
lost their jobs for giving voice to
their thoughts, which may have been
legal under the freedom of speech
amendment, but crossed the line of
public 'opinion. Sometimes being
legal isn't enough; public opinion isn't
always governed by statute.
There are some limits on freedom of
speech; the amendment doesn't give
anyone the right to cry "FIRE!" in a
crowded theater, unless a fire actually
exists.
The U.S. Supreme Court has
interpreted some parts of the
Constitution very broadly; with some
people saying it has gone too far
afield in recognizing the burning of
the American flag as being a figure
of speech, and protecting those who
would desecrate our flag in that
manner.
It appears we prefer the court to
err on the liberal side, rather than
: rendering strict opinions based on the
written, word. We live by the adage,,
that "the Supreme Court may not'
always be right, but it is never wrong."
We recognize the Court represents the
law of the land, and we abide by the
law, retaining the 'right to petition
congress for changes in the statutes.
The Constitution has withstood
many attempts to circumvent freedoms
outlined in the document, but 26
amendments in more than 200 years
is testament to the solid foundation
on which our nation was founded, and
we all sleep better at night with our
Constitution firmly in place.

FIRE
Continued from p. 1B

closed to travel during one of
the busiest tourist seasons of
the year, July 2-6. Estimated
damages exceeded $640
million.
To finally bring the fire
under control, it took the
assistance of 10;000
firefighters from 47 states and
more than 150 aircraft. It was
reportedly the largest
coordinated fire response in
the history of our country.
The spreading of wildfires
such as these may have been
avoided-or at least easily
controlled-by the use of
prescribed fires, thinning,
vegetation management, pine
straw harvesting and fire
infrastructure.
Closer-to-home, ori June 17,
1998, an Alachua County fire
spread to the Waldo area. The
fire, which threatened to burn
the entire city of Waldo,
resulted in the burning of
7,000 acres, a mass evacuation
and the destruction of one
building.
Waldo landowner, Clark
Smith regularly conducted
prescribed burning on his
property and was ultimately
responsible for providing a
firebreak that helped save the
city from a more severe fire.

Being a Union County
forester for 22 years, Jay
Tucker has seen that newer
landowners in Bradford and
Union counties are not as,
aware of the importance of
prescribed fire on forest lands.
Bradford County Forester,
Nicole Howard agrees.
"More recent landowners
don't quite have the same
understanding towards
prescribed fire. They may be
from different areas of the
country not used to seeing
prescribed burning and falsely
believe it is hurting the
ecosystem. They don't have
the understanding that it is
actually good for the
environment in this area," said
Howard.
People in general have the
misconception that fire kills
wildlife and plant life in the
forests.
"In actuality, wildlife habitat
is improved and plant growth
in regenerated d.ue to.
.. prescribed burns'," Howard
said.
Prescribed fire has long been
known to reduce fuel loads
(the build-up of plant
vegetation on the ground that
canr lead to catastrophic
wildfire), reduce ladder fuels
(vegetation growth that allows
fire to climb into trees), control
competing vegetation
(uneccessary plant growth that
blocks tree sprouts and native.
plant growth), recycle nutrients
back into the soil and reduce
some insect pests.
Despite the well-recognized
benefits of prescribed fire, its
use has not been as widespread
as many forestry experts would
like.
Further, some plant and
animal life actually cannot


survive without controlled
burning environments.
"Many of our native plants


Union County forester Jay Tucker (left) with
Bradford County Forester Nicole Howard.


and wildlife are either
threatened or endangered due
to the lack of natural
disturbances, which includes
fire.
The native red-cockaded
woodpecker is one such
example of an endangered
species that relies on this type
of habitat management to
survive.
Howard added that wire
grass is an example of plant
life that needs fire in order to
live.
"Wire grass is a fire-
dependent species which,
without frequent burns, will
not survive in an area for a
prolonged periods of time.
Longleaf pines also grow this
way. They will stay in a little
grass stage until surrounding
vegetation is burned away,
causing the pines pop up out of
the ground," Howard said.
Prescribed burning is the
most cost-effective type of
management for removing fire
hazardous fuels.
However, other fuel
management techniques such
as mechanical or chemical use
and timber harvesting may be
more appropriate when
liability and safety issues'
outweigh the benefits of
prescribed burning.

Forest
management

Forest management is the
proper care and control of
forests to maintain the health,
soil condition, water quality,
wildlife preservation, and
beauty of the land
"Think of forest
management as a means .of
mimicking mother nature
-thiough-the uiSe of not only
prescribed burns, bui thinning,
clear cuts and mowing,"
Tucker said.
There are several benefits to
forest management. Properly
maintained forests protect
water quality by keeping
streams and lakes clean,
control run-offs, minimize
erosion, assist the natural
process by which rainwater
percolates-through soil layers.
Tucker and Howard work.
with landowners in Union and
Bradford counties respectively,
to help landowners meet the
objectives for their land.
The forestry departments
assist landowners with tree
identification, diseases, pest
and insect problems,
prescribed fire and fire
prevention, thinning,
harvesting and replanting.
Forest management allows


for the control of pests,
diseases and invasive, non- -.
native plants that destroy the A
valuable trees in a forest.
Cutting back old growth -;
renews forestland by creating
and protecting a habitat that
attracts particular types of
wildlife, perhaps many
threatened or endangered
species.
According to Howard, now
is the time to be putting in fire
lines. Fire lines are harrowed
ground barriers around
property lines that a fire cannot
cross.
"We promote fire lines to
decrease the risk of a wildfire
entering your property, or in
the case of a controlled burn,
reduces the risk of the fire
leaving your property and
causing damage, creating a-
liability," said Howard.
Fuel breaks are used to
break up vegetative fuels near
homes. The first 30 feet around
the exterior of the home is
considered as the most critical
defensible space.. The area
should be clear of all highly
flammable plants and trees.
Ways of creating fuel break
around the outside perimeters
of a home include using
landscape features such as
driveways, walkways, ponds
or fencing made with
nonflammable material.
Wherever possible, fire-
resistant, low-growing ground
covers should be used to
reduce fire danger and
discourage weeds. Using
plants with a high moisture
content or plants with
succulent or leathery leaves
will keep. this area fire
retardant.
Today, our community is at
a greater risk of wildfire
because of dead and dying
trees and brush left from
hurricanes of~ the.p.astew.,-
years. The large accumulation
of trees and vegetation on the
ground creates a dangerous fire
hazard as well as increase the
time it will take firefighters to
reach a fire once it starts.
Large accumulations of fuel
could potentially create a
wildfire hazard for years to
come.
The rate for fire line plowing
is $82 per hour with a $50
minimum. For on-site
prescribed burning assistance,
the fee is $22 per hour with a
$100 minimum charge.
The public should be aware
that Forestry telephone 7
numbers in the local directory
are wrong. To reach the
Bradford County forester, call
(904) 964-5436. To reach the
Union County forester, call

In Memory

In Loving Memory
of
Doris Cummings
Beloved wife, mother, sister, niece,
cousin and friend.
Although we only had her here on
earth for a short time, her life and
her gift to touch the hearts of all
those who knew her and had the
privilege to hear her ministry in
song and music were truly blessed.
She is survived by her beautiful
daughter, Amanda Cummings, and
her beloved husband, John
Cummings. She is also survived by
three brothers, Timmy, William,
Jerry Dean and their families.
Because her life was so short on
this earth, those who loved her
can take comfort that God needed
her more in heaven than those of
us on this earth.
We will always love her and she
will always be in our hearts.
Our Beloved Doris
Born: March 3, 1958
/ Passed: Jan. 1,2006

Starke Kiwanians pull the trigger on new event


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Ready, aim, raise funds for
Bradford County youth!
The Kiwanis Club of Starke
did just that on Jan. 6 when it
hosted its inaugural shooting

from the tournament and a

afterward. The majority of the

money raised will go toward
funding Santa Fe Community
College scholarships for youth
from Bradford County.
The weather the night .before
had an effect on the
turnout-with some people
having planned on making the
trip from Georgia-but the 26
who did show up enjoyed a
perfect, sunny day.
Cash prizes totaling $1,650
were handed out to 10
*participants, including Todd
Simmons, who-had the highest
overall average (95 out of 100
shots).
Prizes were handed out for
first-third place in three
classes.
Clayton Huting placed first
in Class A with a score of 93,
followed by Hugh Bennett (90)
and Edwin Johns (87).
Mike Thompson was tops in
Class B with a score of 83,
followed by Glen Lourcey (83)
and Ronnie Davis (82).
The scores at predetermined
stations were used as tie-
breakers, as in the case of
Thompson and Lourcey.
The Class C winner was
Don Kerce with'a score of 67.
Herb Sellers was second with a
score of 62, while Robert


Bob Hill loads his gun before taking aim at the first"
station of the course. He finished fourth in Class A,
shooting 87 of 100 targets.

HOW MUCH ARE YOU LOSING?


Today's real estate market
provides an excellent opportu-
nity for renters to turn their
monthly payments into equity.
While rising slightly, interest
rates now are still much lower
than in the past ten to twenty
years, and home prices in 'many
areas are adjusting back down
to reflect reasonable levels of
appreciation.
It's critical to begin taking
those first steps towards home
ownership, and here are some
reasons why.
Money paid for rent goes
into the pocket of the landlord,
while money paid for a mort-
gage goes toward equity in the
home. In other words, you
keep the money you pay for
your home, as its investment
value increases with every pay-
ment.
Over the last decade, the
cost of rent has increased an
average of 3% each year. At
that rate, payments of $1,000
per month would total


$137,567 over ten years, with
no accumulation of equity or
wealth.
If you could put $10,000
down on a $210,000 home
today and pay $1,100 per
month, your equity would total
$138,521 over that same ten-
year period. That's your
money! This calculation
assumes a 30-year fixed rate
loan at 6.5% and an annual
appreciation of 4.5%.
So sit down and do the
math, and then contact a local
real estate agent to discuss
your best options for home
ownership. It's never too late
to start building your future!

learn the job themselves. They
then teach the job to the
handicapped person.
The job coaches have all the
skills necessary to train
mentally handicapped people,
so the employer doesn't have
to worry about encountering
special problems in training a
mentally handicapped
employee. In fact, during the
training period, the employer
will be getting two employees
for the price of one-the
mentally handicapped person-
and the job coach.
Arc doesn't just leave it at
that, either. "We know that the
requirements of a job can
change through time. Job
coaches are always available to
go back to the workplace and
provide additional training,"
said Mosley.
Job coaches also pay regular
visits to the workplace to
ensure that both the employer
and employee are still happy
with the situation.
Mosley said most
handicapped people make good
employees. "They are
dependable and they aim to
please," she said. "They are
willing to learn and are very
motivated 'and enthusiastic.
They are proud of what they
accomplish."
The people who participate
in the supported employment
program are not new to work.
They have all participated in
the work done in the different
departments at Sunshine
Industries. Mosley said they
have already learned how to
work together as a group under
the supervision of non-
handicapped employees.
They know the importance
of being on time and of staying.
on task until the job is dope,
she said.
"They already have a lot of
employability skills that are
necessary for any workplace,"
she said.
Mosley said they try to
match the skills and interests
of the handicapped person with


the job. Housekeeping
activities and fast-food service
are two top areas, "but they
like to do almost anything,"
said Mosley. "They just want
to work."
The age of the employee
pool is 18 to 35 and they are
available as, individuals or as
"enclaves."
Mosley said an enclave
would be a group of six to
eight handicapped people who
would have a full-time Arc
supervisor. This enclave and its
supervisor would work at the
employer's job site on tasks
set by the employer. The Arc
supervisor would be in charge of
making sure the handicapped
employees are correctly trained
and that the assigned tasks get
done on time.
Sunshine Industries Director
Sherry Ruszkowski said that
people who have never worked
with a handicapped employee
will find themselves very
pleasantly surprised.
"Their contributions can be
phenomenal," said said. "We
get a lot of work done here
(Sunshine Industries) with Arc
employees. They can easily
take the skills they have
learned here and move them
into the community setting."
Ruszkowski said people are
often afraid of what they do not
know. "When we talk to
people about hiring people
with disabilities, they are
sometimes reluctant," she said.
"But they are people, just like
any other people. They have
strengths and weaknesses, but
they want to work."
In addition to recruiting jobs
for the mentally handicapped,
Arc also runs a janitorial
business that contracts with
businesses and homes to
provide cleaning services.
A crew of mentally
handicapped workers is
supervised by an Arc
employee. Rates are negotiable
and Mosley said rates only need
to cover the salaries of the
people involved.

"Assisted Living"

This is devoted to raising public awareness about this model of service for the elderly.

Assisted living represents a combination of housing and personal care services to elderly

individuals who may need assistance. Assisted living fills a need between total

independence and total dependence. Assisted living can deliver care to the elderly in a

more cost-effective way than other elderly healthcare options. Su-El's Retirement Home

provides this in a homelike setting. Su-El's services are tailored for the individual which

allows a resident to maintain independence vs. support services, which allows a person to

BC drivers find success behind the wheel in


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Two track championships, a
runner-up finish and a lot of
wins. It all equates to quite a
year for some local drivers
who at Columbia Motorsports
Park in 2006.
Doyle Boatwright and Jason
Garver, both of Starke,
claimed the track
championships in the super
late model and Florida
mo-dified divisions,
respectively, while Trevor
McKinley, a 17-year-old
rookie from Lawtey, finished
second behind Boatwright in
the super late model division.
Throw Farelon
McClellan-who has won
many races and championships
over the years (mostly in the
Florida m o d i f i ed
--division)i-into the mix and
you've got quite a, strong
group representing Bradford
County at the track in
Ellisville.


For Boatwright, it was his
second championship in three
years and third overall. It came
despite a few mishaps during
the season, which included
wrecking a car.
Still, Boatwright won three
races and, most importantly,
tallied the most points in his
division.
Boatwright won his first
championship in 1998, which
came by the closest margin in
track history. He entered the
last race of that'season trailing
in the points standing, but
came from behind in the latter
stages of that race to win and
claim the overall
championship by three points.
The second championship
for Boatwright occurred in
2004. He won 11 races that
year as well as placing third in
the Florida Pro Series points
standings.
Boatwright is a member of
the Dixie Speed Racing team,
which is owned by Lawtey's


Henry Hodges. Hodges said
Boatwright is a good driver
and tireless worker-qualities
that have led to his success.
His crew also works
tirelessly and are a big part of
Boatwright's success as well,
Hodges said. Crew members
include Ryan Mason, Tim
Parrott and Adam Wilson.
"We have the best crew in
Florida," Hodges said. "They
work tirelessly to make us near
perfect for a race."
Garver, like Boatwright,
celebrated a championship at
the end of the season, despite
what he termed a rough start.
Still, he rebounded and won 14
straight races-including a 50-
lap special-to end the season.
It was the sixth track
championship for Garver, who
also came out on top in 1995,
1996, 1998, 2003 and 2005.
In all, Garver won 18 races.
He even took the bounty at the
end of the last race that was
put up by Lightning Pawn


Starke's Doyle Boatwright (left), shown with Dixie Speed Racing owner Henry
Hodges, won his second super late model championship in three years at Columbia
Motorsports Park. It was his third championship overall.

and Son Logging and Terry
Roberts. -
Garver, who eclipsed the
100-win mark for his career in
2004, also won a feature race
at New Symrna Speedway on
Nov. 25.
One day, McKinley may
boast of 100-plus wins. His
rookie season could certainly
be termed a success. He
recorded his first feature win
and earned several top-five
finishes along with placing
second to Boatwright in the
points standings.
He may have competed
against Boatwright, but
McKinley benefited from" the
veteran driver as well. The
McKinley family said thanks
go to Boatwright, Garver and
McClellan-and their
teams-for their help, advice
and support throughout the
year.
Hodges said he and
Boatwright are always willing
to help others, adding he was
"tickled" when McKinley won
his feature race.
McKinley also expressed his
thanks to friends and family,

Bradford boys' rally comes up short


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Eugene Blye sparked a late
rally, but the Bradford boys
basketball team could not
completely erase a 10-point
deficit, falling 54-49 to District
2-4A opponent Baker County
on Jan. 5 in Starke.
Bradford (6-5 prior to Jan.
5) scored seven straight points
in the last six minutes to pull
within 52-49 with 42 seconds
remaining. The run started
with two straight baskets by
Blye-one following an
offensive rebound and another
following his own steal.
Antwan Brown then had a
steal and was fouled on the
subsequent shot attempt. He
made both free throws with 59
seconds remaining to make the
score 52-48.
Blye came up with another
steal and was later sent to the
free throw line, where he made
1-of-2 attempts.
Baker County's Thorn


Crowley broke his team's
scoring drought with a basket
that resulted in the last points
of the game.
Bradford missed three
straight shots at the end of the
game.
Blye finished the game with
17 points to lead the
Tornadoes, who suffered just
their second loss in the district.
Bradford was 3-2 heading into
this past Tuesday's game
against district opponent
Ridgeview.
Marcus Wilson also scored
in double figures for Bradford
with 14 points. Justin
Henderson finished with eight
points.
It was a nip-and-tuck game
in the first half with Blye and
Wilson carrying most of the
load for the Tornadoes. The
two combined for 12 points in
"the first quarter, but it was
Henderson who drained a 3-
pointer to put the Tornadoes
up 15-13 with 10 seconds
remaining in the quarter.


Baker County, however,
would send the game into the
second quarter tied at 15-all
after Jamal Lee converted on a
layup before the buzzer.
Bradford opened the second
quarter with three straight
turnovers, but another 3-
pointer by Henderson put the
Tornadoes up by two.
Wilson added a 3-pointer
late in the quarter before
Brown made two consecutive
baskets, enabling the
Tornadoes to go into the half
up 27-26. Brown's baskets,
which sandwiched two free
throws by Baker's Ike Parker,
were set up by steals by Blye
and Andrew Simmons.
Parker came up big for the
Wildcats in the third quarter.
He, scored six points during an
11-4 run that began thesecond
half and gave the Wildcats' a
37-31 lead.
The Tornadoes missed 7-of-
9 field goal attempts as Baker
built a 10-point lead.
Wilson had both of
Bradford's third quarter field
goals, while Blye and

The new year has arrived
and with it much promise to
the avid fisherman.
There is still approximately
a week left in the general gun
season (it ends Jan. 21 on
private land). We've had
another outstanding hunting
season, and the bucks seem to
be getting bigger and bigger.
The good news is that plenty
got away, which always makes
for better hunting the next
season.
It is time to turn our
attention to the fishing scene.
The above-average
temperatures have started the
fever early. When you get
sunny skies and 80-degree
temperatures in January, it is
hard not to think about fishing
(we've been getting a little
rain, but we need a lot more to.
get our lakes and rivers back
up to par).
The- hot spot for speckled
perch is Lake Santa Fe. The
fish are being caught in 18-26
feet of water with Beetle Spins
and Roadrunners tipped with
minnows. The lake is
extremely low, but fishermen
can launch at both boat ramps.
Bass fishing is picking up in
Santa Fe also. This favorite
bass-tournament lake
continued to produce quality
bass year after year. Look for
bass to begin spawning toward
the end of this month if this
beautiful weather holds up.
Bass fishermen have all their
secret lures, but day in and day
out, a black or watermelon Red
Zoom trick worm will put fish
in your livewell every time.
Sampson Lake is extremely


low also. It is hard to get a
boat in and out. This shallow
lake is a favorite for bass
fishermen because it warms up
quicker than other deeper
lakes.
The time of year is off, but
the Suwannee and Santa Fe
rivers are giving up redbreasts,
stumpknockers, bluegills and
an occasional Suwannee bass.
The best way is to flip crickets
around the edge, letting them
sink slowly to the bottom.
These rivers normally don't
turn on until April, but thanks
to the warmer weather,
everything has gotten off to a
good start.
Don't get me wrong. Old
man winter isn't gone for
good. I've got a sneaking
feeling he'll be back with
several cold blasts before it's
all over.
The second annual Terry's
Huntin'. and Fishin' bass
tournament trail begins
Saturday, Jan. 27, at the St.
Johns River. We'll launch out
Sof Crystal Cove.
This is the first of seven
regular tournaments plus the
classic. Entry forms can be
obtained at Terry's Huntin'
and Fishin' in Starke and
Macclenny.
Also, stop by the Starke
store and sign up for the
inaugural speck tournament.
Fishing will take place in
January, February and March,
with the first tournament
scheduled for Saturday, Jan.
20.
There is a lot of great fishing
ahead, and there are two things
