Whitehead was sheriff of
Union County for 32 years,
from 1953 to 1985.
He was born on Oct. 25,

"John's been an asset to
Clay Electric Cooperative."
Phillips cited Whitehead's
many years of experience in
the "real world" that allowed
him the knowledge of how to
get things done and his ability
to break subjects down so
anyone could understand them.
"Because of John's desire to
help others throughout the
years," Phillips said, "he has a
lot of friends."
"He's simply a good man ..
You couldn't select anyone
more deserving to name this
road after," he said.
Union County Clerk of
Courts Regina Parrish said, "A
lot of my John Whitehead-isms
have been passed on through
his son, Jerry."
She,'too, got the crowd

politician 'Mr. John" was in
his day.
She said Whitehead could
tell a woman who just had a
child that the baby was the
prettiest around.
"We know he has glasses,"
Parrish said. "Can't he see that
baby is ugly?"
She said Whitehead would
continue these comments
throughout the years, and
when-the child turned 18 years
old and could vote, everyone
then understood.

Two bridge projects
still under way

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Three major Department of
Transportation projects have
been going on within the area
in the past year.
The repaving of S.R.
16--from S.R. 121 to the
prison area-is now complete,
but two bridge projects are still
under way.
The New River Bridge on
C.R. 229 at the Bradford-
Union County. line (near
Raiford) has been .undergoing
repair since the end of
September, when it was
completely shut down to
traffic.
As part of a federal bridge
replacement program, the
project is expected to cost $5.9
million.
The bridge is a 1955 timber
bridge, and the DOT is
currently replacing it with a
47-foot wide concrete bride. It
will have two 12-foot lanes
and two 10-foot emergency
lanes, according to DOT
Public Information Officer
Gina Busscher.
The current bridge is 400

who first came to Union
County as a lawyer from
Tampa.
Because Whitehead made
him feel so comfortable as a
young attorney, Cervone said
he came to consider the county
his second home.
"I don't know if I ever told
you this, but in many ways,
you remind me of my dad,"
Cervone said to Whitehead.
Cervone said if anyone ever
asks who the sheriff of Union
County is, he said, "... to me
it will always be John
Whitehead."
Former Bradford County
Sheriff Dolph Reddish was
also invited "to say a few
words."
Taking the hint, Reddish
said he wouldn't speak too
long.
He saw an article in a
newspaper about a building
being dedicated after a person
who donated millions of
dollars.
"I figured he's got liberal in
his old age and must have gave
money (to get a road dedicated
in his honor)," Reddish said.
He went on to describe the
fun times they had together,
including smoking cigars and
lounging around at Santa Fe
Lake.
"As we get older, we only
have family, friends and
memories," he said.
And some of the best times,
he said he spent with
Whitehead.
A couple of the speakers
teared up when sharing' their


fondest memories of
Whitehead, including his son,
Jerry.
"We've had a good dad," he
said.
"It's sometimes hard to say
things about your dad. He had
the reputation for being a stern
task master."
"We know different. He's an
old softy," Jerry said.
After the speakers, Union
County Commissioner Karen
Cossey presented Whitehead
with a plaque with the words,
"presented to John H.
Whitehead, Sheriff of Union
County, 1953-1985, in honor
of 32 years of dedicated
service and in recognition of


the many roads bravely
traveled protecting the citizens
of Union County."
Whitehead and his wife then


unveiled the.sign that will now
mark C.R. 237 North as John
H. Whitehead Highway.


State Attorney
Bill Cervone
said he came to
think of
Whitehead as a
second father.


Dozens of people attended the C.R. 237 dedication
ceremony, and at the end, people waited in line to
congratulate John Whitehead and his family. Upon
his turn, Marvin Pritchett (right) hugs Vivian
Whitehead and wishes John Whitehead well.


After they unveiled the sign, John Whitehead
(second from left) and Vivian Whitehead (second
from right) celebrate the highway dedication with
their children (I-r) John Henry Jr., Jerry and Cynthia
("Sis").

Housing director offers


firm, but fair atmosphere


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Union County Housing
Authority employee Doris
Thomas has been with the
housing agency for almost six
years and was named the
director on May 23, 2006.
Having been in her job for
almost eight months, Thomas
has 'had a chance to settle into
the operations, which she is
charged with overseeing.
As executive director, she
must supervise a staff of five
employees, do budgets, report
to HUD (a federal housing
program that is the authority's
only source of funding), deal
with residents' complaints,
assist residents and more.
"I have the responsibility of
the day-to-day operations,"
Thomas said,'* including
making sure the authority
complies with state and federal
requirements.
"We have 122 units to
provide housing to the
community," she said.
These 122 units are made up
of different types of people
and families-the elderly,
disabled and younger families.
"I'm a people person,"
Thomas said.
So it was no surprise when
she said this was what she
liked most about her job.
"You meet people from all
walks of life, and they all have
a story to tell."
Thomas said it was her job
to welcome low-income
residents with a suitable, safe
and affordable place to live,
but she must follow the federal
housing guidelines for low-
income residents.
"I try to impress upon
residents, 'This is your
community,'" she said.
"I take the responsibility
very. serious."
"When you go to bed at
night, you want to feel secure.
You want a safe, a healthy,
secure and comfortable
environment."
When Thomas is able to
provide a place like this for
residents on a long-term basis,
she said that is her reward.
Thomas has an open-door
policy so that housing
authority employees and
residents feel welcome to
voice concerns and seek help if

Jeb Bush announced
that Florida has

to break the record for the

The event, Breaking a World

overseen by the-Just Read,

bolster reading among middle
school students. The record
attempt aired via a live public
broadcast and Web cast from
Disney-MGM Studios when at

Doris Thomas
needed.
,"We're like a family here,"
she said, but they have to
maintain a "professional
level."
In a small town, she said it
can sometimes be difficult to
apply federal guidelines and
rent requirements-residents
pay between $50 and $450
based on fair market value and
deductions for income and
household size-because she
knows the people she might
have to evict or charge a late
fee.
"I sometimes appear to rule
with a hard wrist," she said.
While residents are not
always in favor of her
decisions, Thomas said she
sticks strictly to HUD
guidelines to avoid favoritism.
With her background, she
can often refer residents to
other services if the housing
authority is not able to help
them.
"We want to, bring as much
positive to the community as
possible," Thomas said, "to
make sure what we do is
representative of who we are."
"I've been blessed that most
of my life I've gotten to ,work
in social services," she said.
Thomas moved to Union
County in 1960 and started out
as a homemaker for the
Suwannee River Economic
Council.
. .She was with SREC until
1987 when'she left to become
an officer for the Department
of Corrections.
After three years on the job,
she decided the job was not for
her.
Eventually, she ended up

"Our middle school students

with the Department of
Children and Families in Lake
City. From a public assistance
specialist, she worked her way
up to a welfare fraud
investigator.
She was with DCF until
leaving to come to the Union
County Housing Authority in
February 2001.
Starting as a housing
manager, Thomas determined
eligibility for low-income
applicants, processed
applications, completed
inspections and did interim
changes and reports.
She also acted as an assistant
to former housing authority
director George Green, where
she did tax reporting,
insurance and other tasks.
This body of work
experience got her to the
position as director.
"You need that experience
in dealing with people," she
said. "That's what has helped
build me tip to where I. am
now."
Thomas believes, her faith
has led her to where she is, as
well.
"I have a very deep
relationship with God," she
said.
This focus has helped her
professionally and personally.
About work, she said, "If I
make a mistake, I'm not too
big to say I'm sorry."
At home, Thomas looks
after seven kids. Most she is
raising after family members,
passed away and entrusted her
with their care.
"We are like the Waltons,"
she said. "We enjoy each other
and have fun."
Thomas lives in -the-
Providence area and is looking
to add rooms on to her house
for the children.
Like the community and
churches help support families
at the housing authority,
Thomas said she has seen an
abundance of help from her
church with her own family.
She attends the Body of Christ
"Assembly in Lake Butler.
It's this community support,
she said, that makes her job
and life so worthwhile.
"Lake Butler, Union County

wouldn't want to live

A New Year ...
WHEN IT BEGINS people tend to view the start of a new year as nri exciting time. It is a time to
make new plans and New Year's resolutions. It is exciting to think of having fresh opportunities and
a clean slate. We like the thought of having fresh opportunities because, being human, we make
mistakes. We mess things up. We say things and do things that we really should not have. However,
the start of a new year does not change the things that we have done. It does not take them away.
Nothing can change the things that we have already done. However, we can be forgiven of the
things we have done. In Matthew 18:23-35, Jesus told a parable of a man who owed a huge sum of
money millions of dollars in today's money. The man could never repay that debt. Yet his master
forgave it. Jesus told this parable to show what God does for us. He can forgive you for the things
that you have done. He can forgive the debt that you owe. God will forgive the debt you owe if you
will repent and turn to Him (Acts 7:30-31). Will you?

Union County resident Seth Parrish (kneeling in center), 13, recently won a state
championship with the Santa Fe Sluggers. The team is made up of baseball
players from Alachua, Baker and Union counties that play baseball year round.



Community support helps local

youth bring home the gold


The continued support from
Union County citizens has
provided 13-year-old Seth
Parrish with an opportunity to
bring the hardware home to
Union County.
Many residents might recall
supporting the efforts of this
local baseball player through
purchasing meals, providing
donations and other fund-
raisers through the past several
years.
Seth continues to represent
Union County as a part of the
Santa Fe Sluggers baseball
organization based in Alachua.
The team consists of 13- and
14-year-olds from Alachua,
Union and Baker counties.
The Sluggers play baseball
year round and compete with
other teams from all over the
state. They have recently seen
success throughout the
southeast United States.
Since joining the team three
years ago, Seth has competed
in games and tournaments
weekly and has played games
in Georgia, South Carolina,
New York and throughout
Fl6rida.
The continuous practice and
hard work has paid off for this
young baseball player as the
Sluggers placed sixth in the
National AAU Championship
Tournament held in Myrtle
Beach, S.C. this past July.
Most recently, Seth and the
Sluggers battled to win a state
championship. In November,
the team traveled to
Winterhaven and competed
against the top teams in the 14-
and-under division of the AAU
Baseball Championship
Tournament.


The Sluggers were
undefeated throughout six
games and brought home the
first state AAU Championship
for'the Alachua organization.
Although the Sluggers team
does not focus on or normally
release individual team
member stats, Seth contributed
10 scoreless innings as a
starting pitcher and produced
several key RBI for the team.


Seth just started his fourth
season on the team and will be
a member of the Lake Butler
Middle School baseball team
when the season begins later
this month.
Seth said, "I would like to
thank Union County for
supporting me in past seasons,
and I look forward to
representing Union County
again."

Lake Butler Middle School's
Teacher of the Year did not set
out to become a teacher.
Instead, she wanted to
become an industrial engineer.
Barbara Riherd, who teaches
math at LBMS, went to
Auburn University to pursue
her goal.
There, she met her future
husband, Tom Riherd, and
they eventually moved back to
Lake Butler, where Tom was
from.
Riherd earned her bachelor's
degree in industrial
engineering from the
University of Central Florida.
She went on to become the
vice president of Farmers and
Dealers Bank until it was sold
in 1996.
After that, she began as a
substitute at Lake Butler
Elementary School. She said
she liked this new job and
wanted to pursue it further.
Riherd received her master's
degree in education from the
University of Florida and
began teaching in 2000 at
LBMS, where she has taught
seventh- and eighth-grade
math for the last five years.
"Math is my strength," she
said.
"I thoroughly enjoy teaching
math."
Riherd approaches each day
in her classroom as an
opportunity for herself and her
students to learn something
new.
"My teaching philosophy is
that every student can learn if
given the opportunity and the
right tools," she said.
While she utilized math in
banking and now as a teacher,
Riherd said banking and
education are two different'
worlds.
One of the challenges she


I also understand that it cannot
be earned individually, but
only with the support of a great
team working together to
achieve what none of us can do
alone."
Riherd was born and grew
up in Florence, Ala., and
moved to Lake Butler in 1984.
She is a member of First
Christian Church.


She is married to Tom
Riherd, and they have three
children: Mark, 19, a
sophomore at Duke
University; Lynne, 17, a senior
at Union County High School;
and Tommy, 15, a sophomore
at UCHS.
Riherd enjoys reading and
plans to travel to England and
Paris in the summer.

has faced in teaching has been
motivating her students to
accomplish what they need to
fpr themselves.
"It takes a lot of patience,"
she said.
In her first year at LBMS,
Riherd said she had a mentor
that showed her the tools of the
trade and helped her develop
into a better teacher.
In 2005, she .received the
National Board Teachers
Certification.
In the evenings, Riherd is an
adjunct instructor at St. Leo
University as part of the
teacher preparation program.
"I .really enjoy that," she
said.,
"Over the last several years,
I have had the opportunity to
mentor other new teachers.
This continues to be very
rewarding as it requires me to
continually re-evaluate my
teaching style and search for
better methods to use in my
own classroom."
When asked how she felt
about the Teacher of the Year
award, Riherd replied, "I was
surprised and honored to be
selected ..."
"I appreciate this honor, but

teaching just beneath the
surface.
However, English teacher
Melda Howell spent the past
20 years as a graphic designer.
Howell said she loved her
job, most recently at the
University of Florida.
"I've been extremely happy
doing it," she said.
Howell has always had the
need to teach and share
information, even teaching
Sunday school for
approximately 20 years.
So when her family and
friends encouraged her to
become a teacher, she decided
'to finally take the leap.
While working at UF, she
'took classes"at night and on the
weekends.
"Because I wanted to intern
in Lake Butler, I traveled to

She teaches two sessions of
sophomore English and four
sessions of intensive reading
(she holds a reading
certification, as well). This is
now her fourth year at UCHS.
"I'm definitely honored and
humbled to be a representative
of a truly, strong high school
staff," Howell said. The award
is based on nominations and

workers.

feet long, but it will be
extended approximately 125
feet and seven and a half feet
higher. This will allow about
10 feet of clearance beneath
the bridge.
Traffic will continue to be
detoured to S.R. 121 to S.R. to
C.R. 225 and back to C.R. 229.
Delays and detours are
frustrating. However, the
bridge's pilings are currently
deteriorating. A concrete
bridge will allow all vehicles,
including those greater than
the 3-ton weight limit, to
safely cross the bridge. The
weight limit will be lifted once
renovations are complete.
According to Busscher, the
project is behind pace because
of "unanticipated substandard
soil conditions. The contractor
is having to auger, or dig a
hole and then place the pile in
the hole, to drive it down about
70 feet, instead, of driving the
piles like normal."
The project is expected to be
completed in six to eight
months.

Similar to the New River
Bridge, the Swift Creek Bridge
was built in the 1950s and is
being replaced as part of a
federal program.
The road has been, open to
traffic, with no anticipated
traffic concerns this week, but
motorists should watch for
equipment on the sides of the
road.
Construction began on Oct.
13, 2006, and was expected to
take approximately 270 days to
finish, putting the completion
date sometime during the
summer.
Even with an emergency
repair made to dirt erosion,
Busscher said the Swift Creek
Bridge project was progressing
at a- faster pace than expected
and could possibly be done by
May.
New pilings have been
driven and caps-what the
bridge deck actually sits
on-will be poured by the end
of this week.
Beams will go up in about
two weeks, with the deck to
follow. Once these steps are
completed (by the end of
April), traffic will use the new
bridge while the old bridge is
torn down. Road closures are
not expected at this point.

Middle school tabs Cindy

Howell as its SRE of the Year


Other SREs are
named within the
district.


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
The first thing anyone sees
when they walk into the office
at Lake Butler Middle School
is the smiling face of secretary
Cindy Howell.
Recently, Howell was voted
as the middle school's School-
Related Employee of the Year.
Her career started as a
substitute teacher, and then she
went into exceptional student
education.
She. served as a parent
liaison for two years. She split
her time between LBMS and
Union County High School.
Then, she was an ESE clerk
at the middle school for
another two years.


HOWELL
Continued from p. 4A

Teaching is something that
first started for Howell in
childhood.
"I've always loved
learning," she said,
remembering how she used to
teach her brother, Duke
Emerson, when they played
school as children. Emerson
also works at UCHS as the
golf coach and is married to
former UCHS agriculture
teacher Charlotte Emerson.
A love for learning is
something she tries to pass on
to her students in a caring
environment.
Hanging in her classroom is
a sign: Because nice matters.


Cindy Howell


Eventually, Howell found
her way into the front office as
the secretary and has been in
that job for the last year.
When asked what her
favorite part of her job was,
Howell replied, "I like dealing


"I want my classroom to be
a home away from home," she
said.
"Mr. (Alex) Nelson (UCHS
principal) says you've got to
reach their hearts before you
reach their minds."
Howell tries to vary her
lesson plans because she said
students only like routine up to
ascertain point.
"Being a visual person, I
think I'm aware kids learn that
way," she said.
This awareness reminds her
to differ the way she presents
information so all students

Editorial/Opinion On insurance


Thursday, Jan. 18, 2007 Page 4B



A sad commentary


A new facility is being established
in Bradford County to provide
counseling to women with unwanted
pregnancies. A satellite of the Women's
Resource Center in Gainesville, it will
be opening soon in a rather obscure
building to allow patients to go and
come without undue attention.
The statistics concerning unwanted
pregnancies are disturbing, and the
community is poorer for what is
revealed:
Unwed mothers give birth to 44
percent of all babies born in Bradford
County.
For every 1,000 15-19-year-old
females in Bradford County there are
61 births; the state average is 43.
For every 1,000 10-18-year-old
females in Bradford County there are
19 births; the state average is 15.
By age 20, 75 percent of women
in our nation have had sexual
intercourse.
U.S. teenagers are more likely to
have sexual intercourse before age
15 than teenagers in other developed
countries.
U.S. teenagers are more likely to
have more than one sexual partner in
a year.
Sixty-seven percent of all sexually
transmitted diseases occur in people
under the age of 25.
Each year 15 million new people
are infected with an STD, and 25
percent of these people are 15-19
years old.
Since Roe vs. Wade there have
been 46 million abortions in our
nation. In 2005, there were 92,513
abortions in Florida.
These figures. cross all socio-
economic and racial lines and don't
;poqiiLn, gers a anyone, siqce families
from all walks of life are affected
by the activities of youth. And while
females bear the brunt of out-of-
wedlock births, there is a male going
free, perhaps even bragging about his
part in the life-altering situation.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR


County health officers, elected
officials, ministers and social
workers are mystified by county
numbers exceeding the average.
These community leaders do not see
Bradford County as below average in
family incomes, nor is there a lack of
churches in the county. While church
membership or attendance doesn't
guarantee non-participation in sexual
activities by youth, it is believed to
be a deterrent. Bradford County has
an enviable school system, providing
academic and vocational education
without leaving home.
There was a time when having a
baby out of wedlock was a shocking
situation and families took measures
to deny or hide the pregnancy.
Sometimes the young female would
be sent away to a relative or a facility,
and when the girl returned home
she would be trim and slim, and
no one ever questioned the reason
for her absence. In other situations,
the baby's grandmother would claim
the child as her own, saying the
baby's real mother was an older sister,
and the newborn was the result of a
late-in-life pregnancy. Perhaps most
neighbors knew of the subterfuge and
supported the claim.
The Women's Resource Center of
Bradford County is being established
here because it is centrally located
to serve Bradford, Union and Clay
counties. The Gainesville facility has
served thousands of women, but only
served 59 clients from Hawthorne and
103 from Starke, Keystone Heights,
Melrose and surrounding areas,.
so where are the would-be clients
going?
The building is blue, attached
to a larger blue building at 766 N.
Thompson St.. in ,a.,residential area
with little traffic.
The WRC does not receive any
government funding.

proposals
from the
Legislature...
Dear Editor:
Upon looking over the
House and Senate plans, to help
lower insurance premiums in
the state, I would like to offer
some constructive criticism. I
believe that most of the plans
set forth by the House and the
Senate are in line with what
the voters of the state would
like to see. However,
compromise cannot be taken to
such a high degree when it
comes to how the Legislature
treats the private sector.
I am referring to the House
plan to make the private sector
offer only the types of
insurance that the state wants
them to offer.
In addition to the current
House and Senate proposals I
propose the following three
ideas to the Legislature:
1) Take the angle of
prevention: Since we have no
control over the weather and its
conditions, maybe our focus
should be on protecting the
well-being of our properties
and doing everything possible
to make sure all citizens in
higher liability areas are as
protected as possible from
severe damage. Therefore, the
state should legislate and/or
subsidize protection measures
such as stronger building
codes, wind shutters, and any
other protection from hurricane
damage.
2) Double insurance: I'm
not sure if this is even
possible, but could the state set
a ceiling on how much of a
premium insurance companies
charge, then offset the increases
by backing the rest of the risk
with Citizens or the CAT
fund? (Much like the SBA will
back a loan given to a small
business owner through a
private bank.)
3) Focus on the long-term
solution: I understand that our
governor has made some
campaign promises to lower
property insurance, but our
lawmakers need to make sure
that what they legislate does
not come from the emotion of
being able to bully the private..
sector, but compromising for .
the long-term. (A short-term
answer is not the solution.)


HE EDITOR


My concern is that if we take
the strong-arm approach then
we will force insurance
companies to leave the state,
thus leaving us with Citizens
Insurance, a state-run
institution. This then sets us
up for a form of socialism
within the state of Florida. I
would not like to see that
happen, so our legislators this
week need to think long-term,
not just week-long special
session.
Again, as a home owner and
a business owner I understand
the dilemma on both sides, but
I do not believe government
should be "strong-arming" the
private sector into doing what
it wants unless the private
sector is creating ,an unfair
situation. At this time, both
the insurance companies and
the citizens of Florida have
been put in an unfair
predicament. So let's work to
bring a balanced proposal to-
the table.

Why students
leave BC
public schools
Dear Editor:
I am writing you in response
to your question about students
leaving Bradford County public
schools. I will try to be
concise in my answer but J
would also request you print
my answer in its entirety. First
of all, it is true that Bradford
County is in a state of
"declining enrollment."
We have steadily lost
enrollment since 2000. There
have been many factors in the
shortfall and I will attempt to
discuss a few of these areas.
First, I want this
information to be portrayed as
informational and not in an
"excuse giving" mode.
Education has evolved recently
to providing more options for
parents to provide our children
with the best possible
education.
This comes through McKay
Scholarships, Charter schools,
home education, Florida virtual
schools, private schools (many
which are faith-based.)
Bradford Countycurrently is
in direct competition:within its.
neighboring counties,
particularly Union and Clay.


Clay County is currently one
of the most highly rated
districts in the state, so
naturally we are constantly
compared to them and
rightfully so.
Curriculum and the process
of how we deliver, instruction
is critical. We are rapidly
moving forward in that area in
Bradford County (we got
behind) and that's never good
but we are strategically and
with much effort moving
forward.
The single most important
factor in the success of a
school is not the physical
structure or what county it's
located in or how curriculum is
developed, but it is that
individual classroom teacher.
That is where instruction is
delivered. (My point is that) w(
have an outstanding staff her
in Bradford County th r
matches with any other county.
They are dedicated and work
diligently and have our
student's best interests at heart.
No, we're not perfect, but are
striving to give our children
and our county what we deserve
a top-notch education.
Another particular issue in
Bradford County is that for the
most part we are a faith-based
county. With that many
parents would like prayer and
scriptures read daily as part of
their child's education process.
So this is another challenge.
There are also cultural and
diversity issues that some
parents feel are dealt with
differently in other systems or
districts. Remember we are the
public school system and we
take all children, regardless of
background intellect or
physical limitations.
In conclusion, our reading
score and overall grades of our
school system are on the rise.
The state and federal
government constantly raises
the bar, and we embrace that
challenge.
We have good leadership
teams in place at our schools
and diligently try to provide
them all the tools necessary for
Bradford County to become an
elite school district in the state.
Our school board is committed
to this process and are great
partners in our endeavors.
I would like to see the day
when there wouldn't be a
consideration., to leave Bradford
County but only thoughts 2

An action packed family friendly drama about a high school
football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team ...
and himself.
In his six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a
winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched
.when the best player on the Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer
schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the
coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him
fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has
lost hope in the battle against fear and failure.
However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose
bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the
impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith
plays out on the field ... and off.

Be aware of
radon during
Radon Action
Month
January is National Radon
Action Month. Radon is a
naturally occurring gas that,
- enters ,structures .from the,
surrounding soil. You can't see
it, smell it, or taste it.
Depending on the amount of
radon found in your home you
may, be at risk for health
problems. Radon is the second
leading cause for lung cancer in
the United States, second only
to tobacco smoking.
Overabundance of radon gas in
Florida homes isn't a huge
problem according to all of the
statistics but it's better to be
safe than sorry!
Radon is formed from the
natural radioactive decay of
uranium in rock, soil and water.


and Needle in Lake Butler
where he assisted owner Keith
Kirby in remodeling the store
and making custom T-shirts.
He also spent time working at
Union County High School's
agriculture farm along with his
older brother, Caleb.


Naturally existing, low levels
or uranium occur widely in the
Earth's crust. It can be found in
all 50 states and once produced
moves through the ground to
the air above and on to
dissolve in water that collects
and flows under the earth's
surface.
But it isn't this that makes
radon radioactive. Radon
undergoes transformation about
every four days and when this
happens it is then that
radioactive particles are
released. These particles can get
trapped in your lungs when
you breathe and continue to
break down further and release
more radiation. This can
damage lung tissue and lead to
lung cancer over the course of
your lifetime.
Not everyone exposed to
elevated levels of radon will
develop lung cancer, and the
amount of time between
exposure and the onset of
disease may be many years.
However, this should not stop
you from doing what you can
now to ensure'that you and
your family are not at risk.
In the United States, nearly
one out of every 15 homes has

a radon .level that the
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) considers to be
elevated and is putting the
home's residents at risk for
health problems. This figure
does not include the numbers
of homes that have levels of
radon that are not considered
elevated but where radon is
nonetheless still present. Most
people spend as much as 90
percent of their time indoors,
which makes the amount of
exposure alarming. The only
sure way to determine the level
of radon in your home is to
test.
A wide range of test kits for
radon are available. Radon test
kits should cost between $15
and $25, depending on the type
of kit. This price should
include laboratory analysis
which includes a report that
will be mailed to you after you
have sent the kit back to the
company for processing.
* There are two types of test
kits for in-home radon testing.
Short-term tests offer a quick
and inexpensive way to
"screen" for radon in your
home. Short-term tests do not
measure the annual average of
radon. They are typically left in

Topping all of that off by
maintaining a 3.5 GPA,
Williams appears to be well
deserving of the HOBY Youth
Leadership Award.
Receiving brochures and
information packets from
Hugh O Brian Youth
Leadership on a regular basis,
he is kept informed of
activities which he can choose
to participate in during the
event.
One activity Williams is
looking forward to is
participating as a lawyer in a
mock trial. However, the one
activity he said that sounds
like the most fun is a session
known as "battlefield tactics,"
where he'll get to participate
in paintball wars with other
students.
Mom Lori Williams stated
that she and her husband, Tom,
continue to be very proud of
their son and his


place from two to seven days.
Be sure to follow the
instructions with the test kit
for accurate results. Test kits
can be found at most larger
retail stores and can also be
ordered from Web sites online.
Using a test kit to find out
"where your home stands may
be quite comforting. In a
country where there are so
many other health problems, it
is important to do what we can
to reduce the risk to which we
expose ourselves.
Remember to take action this
month and find out just where
your home stands with radon.

While working in Winnipeg,

It made an impression upon

could be and do just about
anything in the world he
wanted to do.
Upon returning to the United

America's first naturalist

portrayed at Melrose Library

Bradford Explorers earn

awards at delegate meeting


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Monitor Staff Writer
Those fortunate enough to be
at the Melrose Public Library on
the evening of Jan.4 were
treated to a one-man show by
actor and playwright J.D Sutton
as 18th century naturalist
William Bartram. The show was
presented by the Melrose
Library Association and the
Florida Humanities Council.
Bartram, who was born in
1739 near Philadelphia,
achieved fame as America's first
native born naturalist and artist.
He was also the country's first
author to portray nature through
personal experience, as well as
scientific observation.
During his lifetime he
explored eight Southeastern
states which were still in pristine
condition- before civilization
made its impact.
Actor Sutton's focus in this
production (which he also
wrote) was on Bartram's
observations and reflections
about Florida in the years just
before the Revolutionary War.
Sutton charmingly portrayed
Bartram as a passionate and
enthusiastic /eccentric who
spoke eloquently and with
reverence of the plant and
animal life he encountered,
reflecting on their physical and
scientific aspects, and on their
place in the creator's grand
design.
Sutton entertained the
audience of several dozen
people with Bartram's amusing
recounting of what were
essentially harrowing
experiences, including a
meeting with a Seminole
warrior whom he feared meant
to kill him, but extended his
hand in friendship instead. The
Seminole dubbed Bartram "Puc
Puggy", meaning "Flower
Hunter".
Especially compelling-and
an interesting look into both the
splendor and savagery of nature-
was his tale of scores-of
alligators devouring fish in a
feeding frenzy in St. Johns River
and his own narrow escape from
being snatched by one of the
"monsters of the river".
Especially poignant was his


Actor J.D. Sutton portrayed America's first naturalist,
William Bartram, at the Melrose Public Library


account of a bear being shot by a
hunter, who then, to Bartrams'
further distress, killed one of the
bear's cubs who had climbed
atop his dead parent in anguish.
This led him to reflect that
animals are far more than just
creatures driven by instinct, but
have emotions and souls.
Years after his exploits, in
1791 Bartram published his
book, "William's Travels",
which became an immediate
success in Europe and was an
influence on the Romantic
Poets, Keats, Byron and Shelley.
Sutton, like his subject, also
happened to have been born and
raised in Philadelphia.
He has appeared in numerous
legitimate' theater productions
and several TV shows.
Another one-man show he
wrote and starred in off-
Broadway was "Twilight at


Monticello: Ap Evening with
Thomas Jefferson".
Asked how he developed
Bartram's character for the
stage, Sutton said that he had
had conversations with
Bartram's descendants, and
what came across from them is
that same exuberance and child-
like wonder that reportedly
characterized their illustrious
ancestor.
At the end -of his hour-long
performance, Sutton as Bartram,
modestly apologizes to the
audience for his far from
"tedious" story-telling, and
invites them all to his garden
near Philadelphia, begun by his
famous botanist father, John:
Bartram, and which William-
tended for the last thirty years of
his life. It was there, too, that
he died at 84 years of age in
1823.

Camp Blanding's RTI will


get more of a campus feel


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Students who go off to
college and live in dormitories
are not expecting their
bedroom to be one large room
that sleeps approximately 30
other students. Nor do they
expect to, if the urge strikes,
get up in the middle of the
night and have to walk outside
to another building if they
need to use the restroom.
No, that does not sound like
a typical campus setting,
which is why members of the
211th Regiment (Regional
Training Institute) at Camp
Blanding are excited about a
$60-million-plus construction


project that will result in a
more proper campus setting for
those who undergo training
there.
"It's going to be a lot more
conducive to training than the
facility we have now," said
Sgt. 1"s Class Robert Dodd,
senior operations NCO. "You
can train soldiers almost
anywhere, but it's going to be
actually, like a real school
campus. We're going to have
all the .,latest and greatest
equipment there.
"To me, when you're
sending a soldier back out
there to do his job, it's your
job* to do the-best you can to
give him all the support you
can give him. I think here,


we're going to be able to do
that."
The new RTI facility, which
is scheduled for completion in
2009, will encompass more
than 280,000 square feet._
Unlike the current RTI facility,
the new one will be composed
of billeting quarters made up
of rooms that sleep, two
students each.
"This will be a lot better
than 36 guys packed into one
small room," Dodd said,
referring to the current
facility's sleeping
arrangements.

Theressa woman helping


with medical needs in Iraq


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
When you've been away
from home for a while, it can
take some time to become
accustomed again to what were
once familiar surroundings.
Paula Nobles, for example, had
to get used to the fact that she
did not have to carry a gun
with her to church, the grocery
store or anywhere else.
Nobles was gone from her
Theressa home for
approximately a year, serving
in Iraq as a member of the 3r
Medical Command. She
returned home for a brief time
before going back to Iraq, but
she made the most of that time,
which included a trip to
Indiana to see her family for
Christmas.
"I've had a wonderful 15
days here," Nobles said from
her home on Jan. 5. "There's
nothing like your home, your
bed and your family."
Now, Nobles is currently
having to tote a gun with her
everywhere as she goes about
her duties. She also has to don
a flak jacket and wear a steel
helmet when she goes outside,
even though she works in an
area that is approximately 95-
percent secure in terms of
safety, she said.


Her husband, John Fraley,
said the reason for that is the
prevalence of guns in Iraq. Just
about everyone has one, and
they have a tendency to shoot
them into the air during
demonstrations and
celebrations.
"Even where they are, they
can't go outside of their
trailers without wearing their
steel helmets and their flak
jackets because these bullets
will:go up in the air and come
down," Fraley said.
"Occasionally, they'll get
RPGs or,rockets lobbed inside
their compound."
That can be worrisome for
someone whose husband or
wife is in that situation, and
Fraley did admit it's tough, but
he also understands Nobles'
job and what she has to do. He
is retired from the Navy and
understands deployments and
duties to service.
"He's my biggest
supporter," Nobles said. "I
think it helps to have a military
spouse."
As for Nobles, she does not
worry about what could
possibly happen to her while in
Iraq. That comes about as a
result of her faith. As she put
it, she knows she'll be in
heaven if she' should never
wake up.


"I don't worry about fear,"
she said.
Nobles just concentrates on
the task at hand.

Brief service turns
out to be not so brief
Nobles' military career
began when she joined the
Navy' in 1976. She did so, she
said, for the thrill of being able
to travel.
"I just joined for one tour,
but somehow you just keep
going," she said. "Then, when
you reach your 10-year mark,
you feel like you've gotten
halfway, so you just stay there
until you get your 20."
She was in the Navy for four
years as a corpsman, served in
the Navy reserve and attended
Indiana University on the GI
Bill. She then -joined the
Indiana National Guard and
has been in the Army reserve
ever since.
Currently, Nobles is a
lieutenant colonel with the 3rd
Medical Command, which is
responsible for all the medical
units in Iraq, she said.
Her first command in Iraq
was with the 738th Area
Support Medical Company, an
Indiana National Guard unit.

after hours as each room also
includes a desk along with
Internet access.
"We have classes that go 30
or 45 days sometimes," Dodd
said. "If you're away from
home, it's nice to be able to e-
mail back and forth."
Billeting quarters will also
include laundry facilities (they
make up a separate building at
the current RTI) and indoor
plumbing. Today's students
have to walk to separate latrine
facilities.
"It's just things like that that
will make their lives. a lot
better," Dodd said. "I think the
atmosphere for learning is
going to be a lot better.
Generally, 'if you're
comfortable with where you're
sleeping and other things, your
mind's off other stuff, and I
think you can learn better,
absorb mote and take more
in."
Students and instructors both
will have larger classrooms at
their disposal. Currently, RTI
classrooms are. small rooms
(approximately 20'xl7') that
can become quite cramped
when 16 students with all their
gear step inside (there are a
couple of larger rooms that
were made possible by
removing a couple of walls).
Instructors find themselves
having to take larger groups
outside, which can be a
problem in the case of
inclement weather, Dodd said.
The new facility will have
classrooms that can be as large
as 30'x60', with dividers
making it possible to break
those larger rooms up into
smaller ones.
Computer stations will be
installed at each of the desks in
the new rooms, which the
current RTI classrooms don't
have (the current RTI does
have a separate computer lab,

Phase 1 of the Regional Training Institute construction

$60 million, will be complete in 2009.

Instructors will benefit from
the fact that they will now

There is no such space at the

"(Instructors) have to go sit

Dodd said. "Nobody has their

something should happen inr
Tallahassee.
"It will have the same setup
that basically you have in
Tallahassee or that any other
state would have in their
EOC," Dodd said. "Everything
will be accessible there."
The RTI at Camp Blanding
can trace its roots to 1962
when the Florida National
Guard Military Academy
opened. However, all of the
buildings utilized by the RTI
date back to the World War II


era.
- "We do the best we can with
the buildings we have,"'Dodd
said. "They're clean, but
they're still (from) World War
II. They scrub them down
when they leave for the next
class, but as soon as you close
the door, there's a cloud of
dust that comes out of the
ceiling and falls."
The RTI is responsible for
providing training in combat
arms, leadership and military
occupational specialty, as well
as offering the
noncommissioned officer
education system. Students
from throughout the country
have passed through the RTI at
Camp Blanding.
Recently, the First Battalion,

Continued from p. 1C

"I felt it quite a privilege to
serve with those folks since I
grew up in the state of
Indiana," Nobles said.
She worked with combat
stress daily, working with
soldiers who were trying to
deal with the violence they
were witnessing, which
sometimes included the death
of a buddy. She would help
give classes on stress
management as well as, anger
management.
"A lot of soldiers get very
angry at the other side if they
lose a friend or a soldier,"
Nobles said.
As a member of the 3rd
Medical Command, Nobles-
said she makes staff assistant
visits to other medical groups,
still dealing with the issue of
combat stress.
Nobles said many soldiers
are under stress because of
their youth.
"I call them kids," Nobles
said. "They're right out of high
school. They've seen some
things kids their age never see.
I'm sure they're going to grow
up quick."
The "restoration center" is
set up as a place where soldiers
can participate in the
aforementioned stress and
anger management classes, or
simply as a place where a bed
.is available to them:


"We give them like three
days to just chill out away
from what's been going on,"
Nobles said.
As for dealing with her own
stress, Nobles said she relies
on going to church on
Sunday. Also, she, and her
medical colleagues debrief
each other.
"Another thing-you find a
buddy, and you just talk and
talk and talk with your buddy,"
she said.
Fraley, too, has a "buddy,"
who has helped him during the
time Nobles is a.way from
home.
"One of the ladies at my
church has a husband who's
deployed to Afghanistan,"
Fraley said. "She has had some
of the same experiences that
I've had."
It also helps ihat Fraley and
Nobles can communicate with
each other. The couple has a
prearranged time during which
Fraley will call her on a cell
phone. They also correspond
via e-mail.
"When I was in the Navy,
the spouses could not
communicate with their
husbands or wives who were
deployed," Fraley said.

Internet access has allowed
Nobles to do other things that
were not possible when Fraley
served. She can keep tabs on
her bank accounts, for
example, or complete business
transactions.


"She has been able to buy
and sell horses for our home in
Indiana (while in Iraq)," Fraley
said.

Working in Saddam
Hussein's shadow
The area that Nobles works
in is referred to as "the wire."
It is an area composed of
Saddam Hussein's palaces and
surrounded' by a wall that
Hussein had built to keep the
common people out, Nobles
said.
The palaces are an example
of how much money Hussein
spent on himself, Fraley said.
Hussein even utilized gold to
make his toilets.
"The common guy was
happy to see him go, I think,
because they've got a chance
now," Fraley said.
Nobles said the majority of,
Iraqis are glad that Hussein is
gone, and she also feels the
majority of Iraqis are glad the
U.S. has a presence there.
Nobles has the chance to
interact with the Iraqi people
since the medical companies
provide them with medical
care as well as tending to the
needs of the U.S. servicemen.
"To me, it's like being a
missionary," Nobles said. "It's
like the most complete thing I
could ever have done over
there. I feel like I've
contributed just a little bit of
something to those people's
welfare and health."
The Iraqis get more than
medical care. Nobles recalled
one' incident when a woman,
through an interpreter, asked
Nobles if she could bring her
some toothpaste because she
was afraid of being shot if she
ventured into the market place.
"That just kind of hit me
hard," Nobles said. "I thought,
'Gee, in this country, we just
walk into a supermarket and
buy shampoo without fear that
anybody's going to shoot us.'"
Nobles, because of that, has
made it a point to collect extra
items people have sent her to
distribute among the Iraqis.

"We take these boxes of
goodies every time we go (to
the clinic)," Nobles said. "The
interpreters hand out little bags
to each of the families. Some
nice little goodies-shampoos,
soaps, stuff like that."

Tigers lose to Crescent City,

fall to second in district

BY CLIFF SMELLEY ''
TelegraphStaffWriter M ..


Shooting woes for the host
team and a solid performance
at the foul line for the visitors
contributed to the Union
County boys basketball team's
60-53 loss to Crescent City on
Jan. 12 in Lake Butler.
The win kept Crescent City
atop the District 6-3A
standings (the Raiders are tied
with Interlachen with just one
loss in district play), while the
Tigers slipped to second place
with a 4-2. It was the second
straight district loss for the
Tigers.
The teams were tied at the,
half, but the Tigers got off to a
good start in the second half
when Justin Griffin drained a
3-pointer. However, Union.
would go on to miss 13 of its
next 14 field goal attempts.
Crescent City, which
grabbed 14 rebounds in the
quarter, built a nine-point lead.
Clyde Barringer opened the
fourth quarter with a 3-pointer
for the Tigers,. but their
struggles continued as they
missed seven straight 'field
goal attempts after that.
The Raiders went up by 10
with less than three minutes
remaining when Andre Topey
was all by himself underneath
the basket for an easy score.
Union tried to rally. A
rebound score by Jaquan
Simmons and two free throws
by Frankie Caldwell made it a
seven-point game. A free
throw and a basket by Griffin
later made it a five-point game.
However, the Raiders made
7-of-8 free throws after that to
maintain their led.
Overall, Crescent City made
18-of-25 free throws, including
going 14-of-19 in the final five
minutes.
Conversely, the Tigers were
just 10-of-27 at the foul line.
Griffin, who made 5-of-7
free throws, led Union with 15
points, while Ted Young made
5-of-8-free throws and finished
with 14 points.
Caldwell, who had eight
points in the first quarter,

Support from the
home front
No matter what a person's
feeling are concerning U.S.
involvement in Iraq, there
seems to be one thing the
majority of the country is in
agreement upon-support for
our servicemen.
Nobles remembered an
incident at the airport in
Atlanta when she and other
service personnel were
preparing to board a plane. The
crowd at the airport, which
was informed that she and the
others were troops returning to
Iraq, stood up and clapped for
the group.
"It's amazing," Nobles said.
"It's just the proudest feeling.
You think to yourself,
'They're clapping for me?' It's
hard to swallow."
Fraley thinks back to the
time when he was a physician
on active duty during the
Vietnam War. His chief of
medicine told him he was
authorized to attend medical
meetings out of uniform
because people would spit at
soldiers or throw rocks at
them.
Now, Nobles and others
overseas are receiving care
packages from people they
don't even know.
".The mood of the country is
so much different (today),"
Fraley said.
Nobles has become
somewhat of a distributor,
passing out items to other'
people. In fact, a woman
involved with Opeation Quiet
Comfort-which supports
wounded soldiers and the
medical personnel who care
for them-wanted to express
her thanks to Nobles for acting
as a contact- point for the-
organization. When she asked
Nobles what was something
special she could do for her
during the holidays, Nobles
replied that she wanted her to
do something for Fraley.
The woman asked Nobles to
send her a photo of her and
Fraley. That photo was
incorporated into two
pillows-one of which was
sent to Nobles, while the other
was sent to Fraley.
Fraley had no idea what he
had received in the mail until
reading the letter that
accompanied the pillow. The
letter expressed gratitude for
Nobles' assistance and thanked
Frale\ for "sharing Paula with
the V world *
Another. part of the letter
read, "I hope these huggy
pillows bring comfort to each
of you during this difficult
time."
"He was touched by that,"
Nobles said.
Now Nobles is back with her
huggy pillow in Iraq. She said

Fraley is hoping for March.
"We're going to try to see if

K-Country Jamboree over at

----Whow actually qualify for

JV team

winning easily

for Bradford

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A two-point loss is all that
stands between the Bradford,
boys junior varsity basketball
team and a perfect season
through the first half of its
schedule.
Bradford, which was 10-1
prior to its Jan. 12 game
against Suwannee, lost to
Hamilton County back on Dec.
1, but the Tornadoes have had
little trouble with the other
teams they've played.
Seven of the team's wins
have been by double digits,
and the Tornadoes' average
margin of victory is 19 points.
Iw the loss- to Hamilton
County, Bradford erased a 22-
poinit deficit. The Tornadoes
tied the game with a minute
remaining, but Hamilton
banked in a shot at the buzzer
to win 57-55.
Bradford will try to avenge
that loss when it hosts
Hamilton on Tuesday, Jan. 23,
at 6 p.m.
Bradford head coach Keith
Ladd said the success
experienced this year has been
a total team .effort. He
mentioned some players such
as David Shealy,. who was
averaging 15 points per game
prior to injuring' his back,
Danerrius Sheffield, who has'
been a good ,3-point shooter,
Terrence Davis, who has
started at the point all season,
and Pedro Jonas, who has
come in off the bench and
played well the last couple of
games.
However, Ladd said he
really couldn't credit
Bradford's success to just a
few players.,
"We've probably had about
nine different starters," he said.
"It's, a good team effort, and


they play well together."
Last week, the Tornadoes
defeated Ridgeview 73-52. on
Jan. 9 and Newberry 42-33 on
Jan. 11.
Four players scored in
double figures against
Ridgeview: Markael Moore
(25 points), Jonas (15), Davis
(13) and Sheffield (10).
Against Newberry, C.J.
Covington scored 11 points,
Moore scored 10 and Jonas
scored eight.
The remainder of the team's
wins are: Keystone Heights
(64-34), Ridgeview (52-45),
Suwannee (59-34), Santa Fe
(66-58), Union County (56-
37), Middleburg (69-47),
Interlachen (48-38) and Baker
County (61-23).
The rest of the team is
composed of Isaiah Jenkins,
Charles' Jones, Shanon Kiser,
Malcolm Moore and Martella
Moore.
After its rematch with
Hamilton County on Jan. 23,
the Tornadoes will host
Newberry on Jan. 24, host
Middleburg on Jan. 25, host
Union County on Jan. 27, host
Interlachen on Feb. 1 and

A SURPRISE PITCH


You may be aware that you
can avoid capital gains taxes
on the sale of your home if it
was your primary residence for
at least two of the five years
prior to its sale. Individuals
may qualify for a $250K tax
exemption, and married cou-
ples up to $500K.
But life is funny, and some-
times throws you a curve ball
you weren't expecting. What if
you've moved into your "forev-
er home," and suddenly get
laid off from your job, or need
to move for unforeseen family
or health reasons? Do you lose
your big exemption from prof-
its just because you couldn't
remain in your home for two
years?
The happy answer is no,
not completely. Even the IRS
understands unforeseen cir-
cumstances, and under Internal
Revenue Code 121, you can
get a partial credit for the time
you've lived in your home


before having to sell and
move.
Then your exemption is
based on the number of
months (out of the twenty
four) that you remained in
your principal residence. If
you have to sell after 18
months, you will qualify for
18-24ths, or 75% of the total
$250K or $500K exemption.
The rules may seem com-
plicated, but with the assis-
tance' of your tax adviser and a
trusted real estate professional,
you can maximize your sav-
ings and locate your next
home with a minimum of
aggravation.
If you need information to help
you solve a real estate puzzle, call
me at (352) 275-8531, American
Dream of Northeast Florida, Inc.,
Charleen Gathright, Broker-
Owner, 205 N. Temple Street,

WRESTLING


4 notch wins

for BHS in

home meet

SBY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Overall wins have been hard
to come by for the Bradford
wrestling team, but individual
wrestlers such as Billy Brooks
have fared well in recent
action.
The Tornadoes have lost
matches to Palatka, Baker
County and, most recently,
Clay.
Head coach Ian Summerville


said the lack of wrestlers to fill
every weight class hurts. '
"It's tough," he said. "We
give up 24 points every match
by forfeits."
Prior to the Jan. 9 Clay
meet, Brooks placed fifth in a
tournament at Clay High
School.
In the dual meet against
Clay, Brooks recorded a win
by pinning his opponent. That
was one of four wins for
Bradford in the meet. Sean
Boyette and Brandon Andrews
each won their class by a pin,
and Casey Hines won his class
by a decision.
Summerville said Brooks
has the opportunity to qualify


for the state finals, and he's
hoping at least four advance to
the regional tournament out of
the district tournament.
At this point in the season,
the coach said he is happy
despite the fact that several
wrestlers have quit the team.
The remaining wrestlers all
give 100 percent, he said.
"I have 12 hard workers
right now," Summerville said.

Bradford competed in a
tournament at Ridgeview High
School in Orange Park on Jan.
13 and hosted Buchholz on
Wednesday. The Tornadoes
will next be in action on
Thursday, Jan. 25, against
West Nassau in Callahan at 6
p.m.

SOCCER


Indians fall to
St. Johns by

1-0 score

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
St. Johns Country Day did it
to the Keystone Heights boys
soccer team again, handing the
Indians a 1-0 loss on Jan. 11 in
Keystone.
The Indians were undefeated
after losing 1-0 to St. Johns
back on Nov. 20 and were in
the midst of a 12-game
winning streak. The loss on
Jan. 11 gave the Indians a 13-


2-4 record.
In the teams' first meeting,
Country Day scored a goal in
the 70'h minute. This time,
Country Day scored with
approximately three minutes
remaining.
Keystone had a chance
almost a minute later to tie the
score, but Justin Hannah could
not quite get up high enough to
head in Brad Gober's throw-in.
The Indians played well
defensively for most of the
night. Austin Bennett
prevented Country Day from
scoring in the 29th minute
when he headed a shot away
from the net, and goalie
Michael McLeod made two
saves in an approximate two-
minute span early in the
second half.
Keystone created several


more scoring opportunities for
themselves than Country Day,
but just could not convert on
them. The Indians actually
appeared to have scored a goal
at one point in the match, but it
was waved off by the officials.
