Petersons have faith in their marriage


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
"Brother Art" Peterson, as
he is-known,- has been- the
minister a,t First Christian
Church for going on 22 years
in July.
Having been by his side for
that entire time is his wife of
37 years, Janis.
God plays a large part in the
couple's lives, but you could
also say it was He who brought
them together.
Art was born and raised in
Lake City, while Janis came
from Lake Port, which is west
of the Okeechobee.
The couple met at Atlanta
Christian College in the fall of
1967. Art was a senior and
Janis was a freshman.
Art said he heard from Janis'
brother-in-law that she would
be coming to school, and he
had his eye out for her.
Preaching out of town at the
time, Art invited Janis to go to
church with him. Afterward,
they went and got a
hamburger.
The next week, they went to
Stone Mountain.
"I wasn't going to let him
hold my hand," Janis said.
Art said, "We were climbing
up the mountain, and at times,
she needed help, so she had to
hold my hand for me to help
her. She wouldn't let go."
Within a week or two, Art
said he knew he had found the
woman he was to marry.
Janis said, "I told him to
slow down because I wanted to

Pictured here on Feb. 6, Art and Janis Peterson said
they have kept their marriage strong by always
keeping the Lord first.


date around." ,
"He was always patient and
the gentleman," she added.
"He made me feel safe."
In 1968, the couple was
engaged.
When asked how the
proposal went, Art said he
didn't think he ever asked her.
He joked that one day they
were walking down the
sidewalk at college; they saw
an ant, and he stomped on it.
Janis didn't like that, and she
said if they were going to have
a future they would have to
work these things out.
Janis laughed and said the
idea of marriage "kind of came


mutually." Art said he did ask
her dad's permission.
After Art graduated from
Bible college, the couple wed
on June 7, 1969, at the Lake
Port Church of Christ.
Art went to Lincoln
Christian Seminary in Illinois
for graduate school, where
Janis graduated in 1971.
Janis said, "When we went,
we had no jobs and no idea
where we were going to live.
We had faith the Lord was
going to take care of us."
Brother Art began preaching

wasn't thinking about boys.
She had her eye on the cake.
But in a photo that her aunt
still has today, it showed that
Dap had his eye on Diana. Dan
happened to be at the party
because his parents were
friends of Diana's aunt and
uncle.
It could have all ended right
there, as Diana went back to
Indiana, but some years later,
Diana's parents sold their
family business and moved to
Camden, Mich.
It was the summer of 1966,
the year before they were both
seniors in high school. Diana
was to attend the school Dan
already went to.
Diana and her cousin went
to a place where the teenagers
hung out-called Teen Haven.
"During the summer, I had
my eye on her," Dan said.
"I didn't have the courage to
ask her out."
When school started, they
went on a double date to start
with, but it almost didn't
happen for this soon-to-be-
couple.
-"He was late for our first
date," Diana said.
Her parents had built a new
house next to an old one,
which was undergoing
demolition work. Dan
explained that as he walked
past the old house, he slipped
on a patch of ice and fell into
the basement.
He was okay in the end and
took her to a county fair on
their first date. The couple
continued to date throughout
their senior year in high
school.
After two years, Dan popped
the question in Diana's parents'
living room. She was sitting on
the couch, and he got down on
one knee to propose,
On -Sept. 20,. 1968, the
couple were married. They
decided on the date because it
was Dan's father's birthday.,
"My parents loved her," he
said.
Diana said, "His parents
called me a daughter, not a
daughter-in-law."
Now that both sets of
parents have passed, the
Words said they are still a
close family, including Dan's
three sisters.
This closeness was not
something the couple had the
luxury of during their first
years of marriage.
In 1969, Dan received his
draft notice to go to Vietnam.
He didn't return home until
1971.
This next chapter of their
lives brought their son, Spott.


BY MIKE RIPPLINGER
Special to the Times
In the 2007-2008 school
year, Union County High
School will begin a new
method of instructing its
students and increasing student
growth and interest in subjects.
Many students will have the
opportunity to enroll in an
academy focusing on a field of
study that will enable them to
graduate with more than a
diploma. Future graduates will
be equipped with the
knowledge and skills in order
to compete for positions in
higher paying careers and post
secondary institutions of
learning.
Union County High School
will begin a Business
Academy, Construction
Academy and Health Sciences
Academy next year. These
will join the current Teacher
Cadet Academy that started
this current school year. These
academies will give our
students greater opportunities
to prepare for and design their
futures. The goals of the
academies are as follows:
1. To increase learning
through a field of study

This was their only child (they
now have two grandsons, i
Brandon and Tyler, who they
love very much).
The Words moved to Florida
25 years ago with their son and i
moved to Union County in-
1993.
Dan said they had been
looking for a home.
-Diana said, "It was just a
beautiful land."
The couple has been
working together in their
marriage for 38 years now.
Professionally, they have also
worked together for 20 years.
They own a company that
provides security systems for
homes and businesses.
Dan worked for a phone
company and started the
business because they both
saw a need for security
systems in the area.
"I got busy on that," Dan
said, "and Diana had to save
the day."
"I get to see her more," 'he
said.
The Words said they love
their job, and it's great because

through tapping into interests.
When students are interested in
something they have a greater
motivation to learn more about
that subject. By incorporating
that excitement with academic
instruction and practical skill
application, we can raise
student ambitions an id
commitment to achievement.
2. To better equip odr
graduates for a seamleIs
transition from the classrootn
to the workforce. As students
progress through an academy
they will be gaining real world
skills and knowledge that will
enable them to compete in the
job market with an increased
level of success. They will
have the opportunity to gain
industry certification, making
them a more attractive
candidate to a future employer;
3. To better prepare our
graduates for college and
university entrance while
exposing them to occupations
within a career field. As
students move from high
school, to the college and
university setting they will
have a greater understanding

in a town called Witt, where
they lived for five and a half
years. There, they had their
two sons, Sherman and
Andrew. [Sherman is the
oldest child and is the director
of arts and crafts at the Florida
Sheriffs Boys Ranch. Andrew
is a songwriter and musician in
Nashville, where he lives with
his wife, two sons and
daughter.]
From Witt, they moved to
Monticello, Ill.- They lived
there for seven years and had
their two daughters, Sharon
and Shauna. Art ministered to
church there, too. [Sharon is
married to a youth minister in
Jonesboro, Ga. Shauna lives in
Louisville, Ky., where she
works with a program called
"Teen Expansions."]
Eventually, the Petersons
returned to Florida because
both their parents lived here.
Art .was the minister at First
Christian Church in Orange
Paik for three and a half years
before he and his wife moved


to Lake Butler. He has been
the minister at First Christian
Church ever since.
"We're both committed to
the Lord," Janis said. "...We
know we have been motivated
to work in the ministry
together."
Their marriage has been
successful for this reason, Art
said, and because they are very
compatible.
He said they both share a
love for gardening, their home,
woodworking and, of course,
their family.
Janis said, "We were best
friends before we got married."
As a minister, Art often
gives this advice to other
couples.
"Put the-Lord first. Look out
for the best for each other.
Never use the word divorce in
an argument. Keep committed
to your vows."
For Valentine's Day, Janis
and Art said they have always
exchanged cards and eaten
dinner together.
"If I 'had it to do all over
again, I would have married
her faster," Art said.
"I love her more now than
ever before."

Christ Central Ministries anchors in Lake Butler


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
The church first met in the
Lulu Community Center and
eventually rented the Union
County School District's
meeting room.
Now its permanently


dropping anchor in Lake
Butler.
The Anchor Christ Central
Ministries of Lake Butler
recently completed its new
building on C.R. 231, one-
fourth of a mile south of RMC.
Rob Jarvis is the senior
pastor at the church.


Pastor Rob Jarvis delivers his sermon dressed in his
football jersey as part of The Anchor's themed
services, "Road to the Super Bowl."


He said the church offers
positive, practical messages
that can be applied to real life.
Jarvis and his wife, Marlena,
attended church in Lake City
for seven years.
He was the youth pastor
when their senior pastor died.
Jarvis took over and led the
church for six months as
interim pastor.
Not ever having been a
senior pastor before, Jarvis
said it took some adjustment.
When another pastor was
hired, Jarvis and his wife said
they felt it was time to return
to Lake Butler.

Working on faith
They felt led to start their
own church and Bible studies.
Marlena said they had 60
people at the first service at the
Lulu Community Center.
"It was almost confirmation
that we were doing the right
thing," she said.
As they grew, the Jarvises
rented the school board office
for more than two years.
Eventually, they decided to
build a church, not rent
anymore.
With approximately 20 to 25
core members, they all
committed $100 a month over
what they normally did to
prepare for construction costs.
The Jarvises also
approached banks about
financing.
While some said they didn't
have enough money, the
couple said they finally found
one banker that help them
come up with a plan.
"We put an approximate
payment in a savings account,"
Rob said, "for a building we
didn't have."
"We just did it on faith."
Marlena said of the banker,
"The Lord sent him to us. It
was neat how everything fell
into place."
The church was set to be


around 5,500 square feet in the
planning stages. This switched
to 8,500 square feet as. their
vision grew.
Groundbreaking took place
on Dec. 4, 2005, with
construction taking less than a
year. Finally, the new building
ended up being 14,000 square
feet and opened on Nov. 19,
2006.

Laying out a
different message
' When a person first walks
into the church, they enter
what the Jarvises call their
hospitality room.
To make new and existing
church members feel welcome,
tables and chairs are set up
with a continental breakfast
every Sunday morning.
The bottom level holds the
main sanctuary, a toddler
room, a nursery (where all
workers have had background
checks), an office and a dining
hall with kitchen.
Tile work, painting and
many other materials were
done by the Jarvises, members
of the church or simply
discounted by businesses to
help keep costs down.
Upstairs, there is a room for
the youth ministry. It is
decorated in a youthful
flair-traffic signals, a jukebox
and musical equipment fill the
area. The front end of a
Volkswagon Beetle even
serves as a keyboard holder.
"We had a desire in our
heart for youth," Rob said.
He said often children are
bored with traditional services,
so a younger-style
service-with music and
drama presentations-are
presented to make God
relevant in their lives.
"People said we're bringing
the world into the church," he
said, "but we're really bringing
the church to the world."
The Jarvises best describe
the church as
interdenominational. The
church believes in the Trinity,
that Jesus was the son of God
and healing.
Pastor Rob said he tries to
preach on life and how to live
according to God in a way that
engages churchgoers.
"It's fairly lively," he-said.
"Nobody's falling asleep."


Churchgoers (r-1) Sheran Bennett, Chastity Lloyd,
Stacy Loyd Jr., Stacy Lloyd and Kendice Roberts

sing during part of The Anchor's Sunday service.


Themed services
As another way to reach out
to the members of the church
and guests, Jarvis said he
sometimes holds themed
services.
The "Search and Rescue"


service encouraged the.
recruitment of new members to
hear God's word, he said.
Members were encouraged.

of what career path to take.
They will have been able to
earn college credit in their
field of interest and have a
deeper understanding of what
that career involves.
4. To increase student
achievement. An academy
provides support to its students
in order to increase their
achievement level in high
school. This comes through
close relationships with
teachers and fellow students, a
rigorous and relevant
curriculum, and exposure .to
career and educational options
outside the high school setting.
This will also increase
graduation rates because now
there is a more concrete reason
to stay in school, go to class
and to learn the material.
Over the next few weeks we
will feature each academy that
will be in operation next year
at Union County High School.
You will begin to realize how
this is not only a tremendous
opportunity for our students,
but for the community as well.
Many individuals and
organizations have already
partnered with the academies
and have been planning for
'next year. Parents will be able
to have more details and
questions answered soon in a
parent orientation that will be
occurring. More information
will follow as the time draws
close.
Our school system is a great
one with many advantages and
now we have the ability to take
it to an even higher level. We
truly believe this is a direction
that needs to be taken for the
betterment of our students'
futures, as well as our
community's. We look
forward to sharing these
wonderful and exciting
opportunities throughout the
next few weeks.

The goal, he said, was to
make everyone feel
comfortable, regardless of
what they were wearing.
"If they don't know who this
Jesus is, we'll introduce him to
you," he said.
Marlena added, "Jesus said
come as you are. Church
should feel like a home to
you.
"It's about the people," she
said. "Our church is geared to
be a melting pot."
Marlena, who moved from
California when she was 6
years old, said she had been
used to attending church with
all different types of people.
"...Every color can come in
(to the church) and feel
welcome," she said. "That's the
vision."
The pastor said, "That's why
we're called the church

ago.
"We share two parts of
missions, with foreign and
national mission," Rob Jarvis
said.
This opportunity to do
mission work on a local,
national and international level
was a main reason for the
partnership.


(L-R) Andrew Colson (bass guitar), Lisa Parrish, Robby Jarvis (guitar) and Tabitha
Roberts (keyboard) sing and play instruments as part of the praise and worship
band.


The Anchor is now
supporting missions to the

"It's a spiritual covenant,"
said Jarvis.

hospitality room is open from

something the faculty there

"The administration, faculty

assist you in achieving your
academic goals," said Barry
Sams, director of the school.
It's not often that people can
easily get a second chance, but
the adult school allows
participants to go back and
complete their high school
diploma. This not only
provides a better education,
but also an opportunity to get
better jobs by improving math
and literacy skills before
taking the general education
development (GED) test.
The adult school has been
working one-on-one with
adults since 1968. Free classes
now meet at The Outpost
Alternative School on Monday
and Thursday evenings from 6
to 9 p.m.
Registration for classes can
take place any time during the
school year by going to The
Outpost during the day or on
Monday and Thursday
evenings (while classes are in
session).
To take the GED, there are
separate requirements for
students older and younger
than 18. To find out these
guidelines,_contact Union
County Adult School, 208 S.E.

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area


Renowned entertainer Rogers performs Feb.


. '


James Rogers


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The chance to help those in
need and enjoy family-style
entertainment-that's what
'will be offered at the Bradford
High School auditorium on
Saturday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m.
when James Rogers performs
his one-man show to benefit
the Bradford Food Pantry.
Tickets, which may be
purchased at several area
churches as well as et the
Bradford County Telegraph,
are $10 for adults and $5 for
children.
Rogers, who has been a
mainstay at Dollywood in


Pigeon Forge, Tenn., for more
than 20 years, had performed
annually in Starke for more
than 10 years, but has not had
the opportunity to do so the
past five years. He was
scheduled to perform last year,
but' the show was cancelled
after Rogers was diagnosed
with cancer.
He returns this year,
bringing with him his skills as
a singer and instrumentalist.
Rogers, who has been honored
with such accolades as "Best
Entertainer of the Smokies,"
puts on a show that has been
described as lively, comical
and patriotic. Many of his
musical selections are familiar


favorites, which complement
his original compositions.
Rogers has written such
songs as "Fly' Eagle Fly,"
which was selected as the
bicentennial song for
Tennessee and is one of the
state's official songs, "I Guard
America," the theme song for
the Air and Army National
Guard, and "Save the Eagle,"
which was instrumental in
removing the bald eagle from
the endangered species list.
This concert, along with the
annual "Walk for Hunger," has
been a major fund-raiser for
the Bradford Food Pantry in
the past. Arley McRae,
administrator at the Food


Pantry, expects this show to
Once again pay huge dividends
as all proceeds, after expenses,
will go to the Food Pantry.
1 "That will net us probably at
least a third of what gain every
year," McRae said.
The concert is especially
important now as the number
Of people the Food Pantry
serves increases. McRae said
that number has gradually
risen since 9-11.
"We have gained, in the last
few years, about 1,000 people
a year who we serve," McRae
said. "We're nearing about 800
a month."
' The Food Pantry assists
people who are in need of
emergency food. People who
are eligible can receive food

every three months.
Besides the two major fund-
raisers, the-Food Pantry also
benefits from donations-food
and monetary-made by local
organizations,, school groups
and churches. In fact, McRae
said the Food Pantry would be
in trouble this year if not for
the support of area churches.
Support also comes from the
various individuals who work
at the Food Pantry on a
volunteer basis.
"The only thing they get is
the joy of helping others,"
McRae said.
As far as McRae is
concerned, Rogers is one of
those volunteers.
"It's a mission for him as
well as to us," McRae said.

His life is a beautiful memory, His
absence a silent grief.
He is asleep in God's beautiful

He left behind a beautiful memory,
A sorrow too great to bear.
But to us who loved and lost him,
His memory will always be there.
We love and miss you.

Perhaps yousent a lovely card;
or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a floral piece,
If so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest
words,
As any friend could say;
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us all the day.
Whatever you did to console our
hearts,
We thank you so much for whatever
the part.
Gratefully,

|I LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Reader: 'Bush
is not scary
enough'
Dear Editor:
U.S. command of military
strategy across the globe
appears to have evolved into an
illusion of populism forced
onto the American public by a
liberalism on the one hand and
an inept commander in chief on
the other.
Liberalism proposes to
garner votes in the this country
by convincing voters that the
solution to worldwide terrorism
is to "find a.new course" on the
war on terror and regionalize
the conflict to Afghanistan as
if only terrorism exists in one
geographic location.
Liberalism through television
news casts portray the military
theater in a simple microcosm
whose only solution can be a
Democrat in office in 2008.
On the other hand, we have a
once governor of Texas and
owner of a baseball team as our
president -who has no
,personality for war. A silver
spoon fed nice guy ... but, no
belly for conflict and stuck
with overly cautious
incrementalism on the battle
field. No audacity, no gall ...
too predictable. A formation of
war consciousness that has too
many other concerns towards
alarming Russia or China.
Bush is not scary enough.
The hard truth people Iraq
has a fictitious border with Iran
which is a real and terrible
battle line. Such a real and
terrible battle line cannot
garner votes by 300 million
softening souls half way
around the world. Warrior
peoples of the world will
dictate through theocracy as a
means to bury democracy and
secularism using the decaying
morality as it target for its own
superior virtue called Islam.
Mohammad's dream is to
evolve the Almighty into a
consuming fire using theocracy
as its apparatus.
So, the sooner we are
attacked, the better.
Perhaps, then we can realign
our populism in this country
towards an enemy who desires
our extinction. We need a soul
for the fight of our lives itid' i
preiatiure mistake by ,t~1
enemy to attack us now.

Local woman opens door Military
service is all

to help troubled teens in the family
for locals


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
When it comes to children,
Bradford resident Torrie Clark
has a big heart. She is a home
parent through the White
Foundation, a youth service of
the Department of Juvenile
Justice.


Torrie Clark


Clark has had many years of
experience dealing with
troubled ybuth. She spent 12
years working with children at
Bradford Middle, School, the
Renais's ice'Center and the
Eckerd Comprehensive Youth
Treatment Program.
Since October 2005, she has
opened her home to as many as
eight different youths, who
typically stay with her between
four to eight months.
Currently:,she has three boys,
Tim, 14, ind Chris and Reggie,
both age 13.
Clark said .that being a home
parent allows her the
opportunity to open up her
home to children that, for
whatever reason, need to be-
removed from their current
environment.
Sometimes children can
come to her from a large
family where it can be
overwhelming to ..get the
situation under control due to
their present conditions.
"What I try to provide for
them is stability and structure
to help them get their lives
back on track; a way for them
to see how their lives do not.
have to continue being so
destructive and they can go
back to their fajnilies '.'.ith a
.... '*a fi ,.,,. ,. .. .,-1 ._


brand new perspective on
things," Clark said.
Clark said that the first thing
she generally tells the children
that come into her home is that
they can talk to her about
anything.
"I don't always agree with
everything they say, but I do
allow them the chance to
communicate it and we just go
from there," said Clark.
The most important lesson
Clarke said the children can
learn is that there is a
consequence for every action,
be it positive or negative, and
they have the ability to control
which one it is going to be.
Seventh-grader Chris has
been living with Clarke for
about eight months now.
"When I first got here, I was
just sort of jumping around
and hyper-acting. I couldn't
stay focused. I had a lot of
anger, and I had been very
disrespectful at home," he said.
Since being with Clarke,
Chris said he has become
aware of just how disrespectful
he had been at home and at his
previous school.
"Miss Torrie has a loving
heart. She taught me about
being respectful of others and
their feelings. It feels like I've
been turned around. She
showed me where I had been
making the wrong choice in
who I was hanging around and
how it had a negative impact
on my behavior," Chris said.
Since being with Clark,
Chris said that he has made
better choices in selecting his
friends and is he is better
equipped to be a successful
person with proper manners.
"I think that the best advice I
can give to someone else that
might be going through what I
was going through is to get
into a church and listen to the
gospel. Put God first," said
Chris.
The children that stay with
Clark attend church at Victory
Christian Center in Lake
Btitler no less than two times a
week. The family unit in her
home prays ..together often,
especially every morning.
Tim, the oldest of the three,
has been at Clark's residence


It is turning out to be quite a
family affair for Shawn
McKinney of Starke, who
recently graduated from boot
camp in Fort Leonardwood,
Mo.
McKinney, who underwent
military police training, was
sworn into the Army five
months ago by his cousin,
Capt. Anthony Moore of
Lawtey.
Moore is currently in
Afghanistan. He was stationed
in Fayetteville, N.C.
McKinney will be stationed
in Keinslaughter. Germany,
but there will be another


Shawn McKinney Michael McKinney


McKinney to take his place at
Fort Leonardwood. His
brother, Michael, will be


leaving Feb. 27 to attend boot
camp there,


for about six months now.
Eager to talk, Tim said he
has finally grasped how to turn
his life around and wants
others to understand so they do
not have to go through what he
has gone through.
"All of us, me especially,
have learned about self-
control. I don't mean just when
I'm here, but like, when
certain events take place, I can
see how I reacted to them'
before and how I react to them
now," Tim said.
For him, it wasn't so much
of an anger issue, but
depression. He realizes that
back at home, he experienced a
major breakdown of
communication.
"I mean, sure, we were
always communicating, but it
wasn't what you would call
positive communication," Tim
said.
Also, the sessions with his
counselors and case managers
have helped him in dealing.
with his emotions. '
"They wanted me to talk and
work through my problems, so
I did. I let off a lot of steam. I
yelled at them.
"As far as I was concerfied, I
didn't do anything bad enough
to get me here, away from my
friends and family. I kept
telling them I shouldn't be
here and that I didn't want to
be here. I wasn't ready to see
that I just kept going around in
circles because I didn't think
thpre was anything r,:,ng with
me," Tim said.. '
One of the aspects of the
program was that it helped him
to mature. Being separated'
from his family hurt and he
had to learn how to deal with
the situation that he'd. put
himself into and accept it.
"As long as you learn that,
then you can start getting
through all of your problems.
That's pretty much the basics
right there-accepting who
you are, where you are at and
learning how to deal with
problems rather than getting
angry or fighting," he said.
Once he slowed, down and

(L-R) Lance, Nancy and Greg Stapleton pose in the kitchen of one of the Homes of Merit homes
they have on site. Fleetwood, Homes Of Merit and Destiny homes are offered at Sunshine Home
Center in Starke. You can customize your home by talking to the Stapletons.


Homes you'll love from people you can trust


After Hurricane Charlie hit Florida with 140
mph winds, the Florida Manufactured Housing
Association conducted a follow-up survey of
damages. The survey found that out of 11,800
mobile homes that were built after 1994 to
the new wind standards not one had major
damage.
The homes surveyed were in seven affected
counties, including Charlotte and DeSoto
counties, the hardest-hit. In some cases, the
undamaged homes were standing right next to a
mobile home that was built'prior to 1994. The
pre-1994 homes were often severely damaged,
but the post 1994 homes were not.
Greg Stapleton of Sunshine Home Center in
Starke said Hurricane Charley was a true test of
the new standards and said it proved that mobile
home manufacturers were on the right track with
the changes they have made in construction.
The report was important to the Stapletons
because they care about their customers and are
glad to have proof of what they already knew -
that they are offering top-quality homes to their
customers.
Sunshine Home Center opened in May of
1999 as a family-owned and operated business.
The Stapletons offer Fleetwood, Homes of Merit
-and Destiny homes. They have homes that will


satisfy the biggest dreams and meet almost any
budget. -They have singlewide, doublewide,
triplewide and modular homes.
Sunshine Home Center also offers a variety of
financing options from zero-down on most land-
home packages to VA, FHA and conventional
financing.
But Sunshine Home Center's responsibility
doesn't end when the papers are signed. "After
the hpme is set up, we do a customer visit and
make sure any concern the customer may have is
taken care of," said Greg. "We don't farm that
out, we do it ourselves. We make sure the
customer is fully satisfied with their home."
The Stdpletons are committed to providing
excellent customer service, said Greg. "Even if
they get on down the road, if they have a
concern, all they have to do is pick up the phone.
Good or bad, we'll take care of it," he said.
Quality, selection, financing, customer service
- four good reasons to come talk to the
Stapletons at Sunshine Home Center.
Sunshine Home Center is open Monday
through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.,
Saturday from 8:30 aim. to 5 p.m. and Sunday
from 1-5 p.m. Drop in and take a look at the

Most small

can't afford
to hire a
c h .i e f
financial
officer, but
most small
business
people are
also too busy
running the
day-to-day
operation to
stay on top of
all the tax
laws they are
expected to
understand.


business served here...


"We keep on top of the ever-changing tax laws, so our clients don't
have to." Owner Don Drummond


That's why Don Drummond of Drummond
Financial Services decided to concentrate
mainly on small business clients. "I feel the
small-business sector is an underserved market,"
said Drummond. "They don't have the means to
hire a chief financial officer in-house for all their
accounting and tax services."
Drummond Financial provides the financial
services and tax-law knowledge that those small
businesses lack. "I always enjoy helping our
clients," said Drummond. "If they are not in
compliance with the tax laws, I enjoy helping
them get into compliance. If they are in
compliance, I enjoy helping them make sure
they .are only paying the taxes they are supposed
to pay. I do that by making sure they are taking
advantage of the deductions they are entitled to."
Drummond has always specialized in
taxation. He received his degree from the
University of Southern Mississippi in 1996 and
went on to become an Enrolled Agent. That
means he is licensed to practice before the
Internal Revenue Service. While Drummond
Financial ensures tax documents are prepared
correctly, a business or individual may still find
themselves the subject of an audit. In the case of
an audit, Drummond will be right beside his
client when they meet with the IRS.
"We work as an advocate for the client and
ensure that they are treated fairly," said
Drummond.
Enrolled Agents are licensed through the U.S.
Treasury Department and must demonstrate
competency to practice before the IRS.
Drummond is also a member of the National


Association of Enrolled Agents and the Florida
Society of Enrolled Agents. Both of those
professional organizations require their
members to participate in a program of
continuing education that goes even a step
beyond what the IRS requires.
Drummond Financial Services also prepares
individual tax returns and files them
electronically. Drummond previously worked in
construction as a welder and saidhe is not the
typical three-piece-suit-type businessman."I
know what it's like to be out there working for a
dollar," he said.
Drummond only wears a tie in the office when
he has a meeting. "I want all of my clients to feel
comfortable when they walk into the front
door," said Drummond. "We are very client-
oriented here. I don't ever want clients to feel
they are not welcome. It is my job to serve my
clients, not for my clients to serve me."
Whether the client is a business owner or an
individual, however, "confidentiality" is the
watch-word at Drummond. "Confidentiality is
paramount," said Drummond.
Drummond Financial Services provides a
variety of accounting and tax services for
individuals and small businesses.
Drummond provides financial services
related to payroll and sales taxes, helps
businesses and individuals plan for taxes in
upcoming years, consults with small
businesses on accounting and taxation,
provides analysis of profit situation and
cash flow, and represents businesses and
individuals before tax agencies.

took a look at himself, Tim
said he realized how important
it was to actually listen to and
understand another person's
view on things. Positive
communication is the key.
Tim went on to say that part
of his treatment was
overcoming major problems he
had with school situations and
communicating with his
mother. He said that he now
has good conversations with
his mother and feels that it was
basically a 1lck of the right
kind of communication at
home that led to his problems.
But still, Tim said he is a
little apprehensive about
what's going to happen when
he returns home.
Am I going to do it wrong
all over again? I've changed,
but my environment at home
hasn't. What's going to
happen?"
Clark said that the one thing
she has tried to encourage
among the children is that they
have the power to influence
their environment.
Tim became emotional as he
sald they he could definitely
see and feel positive changes
taking places from within.
"I still have a lot of work
that has to be done in the
program. I want to do it
because, more than anything, I
.want to see my family. I miss
my family and familiar
surroundings," he said.
I really don't think things
would have turned out any
different for me if I wouldn't
of ended up anywhere else but
with Miss Torrie.
Tim also .added that no one
in my immediate family ever
graduated, from school,
something he really didn't
think too much about before,

but now he is determined to
break- that tradition and finish
school.
Reggie said that he mainly
had anger problems when he
was placed with Clark. Since
being in the program, he has
picked up many new ways in
which he can cope with his
anger.
"It's basically life skills
training," he said.
Reggie doesn't feel that his
home environment is bad, and
if he had chosen the right kind
of friends to begin with, things
wouldn't of turned out like
they did.
"There were certain people
in my environment that I could
have chose to hang around that
would have been good and
positive. But I chose to hang
out with the bad kind of people
and it was bad news from
there," Reggie said.
Since being away from his
negative influences and
staying with Clark, he said he
is able to see the differences
between good and bad, and
right from wrong.
"I now see the positives in
picking the right kind of
friends. I've met a lot of good
people since being with Miss
Torrie. I now get to take home
with me a better relationship
with my mom and better
coping skills when dealing
with anger issues. Its like
getting a second chance on life'
for me," said Reggie.
In addition to being a home
parent with the foundation,
Clark is also the founder of
Frontline Ministries 'who
produces a monthly event
known as Breakout, a concert
and get-together for youth at
the Bradford Fairgrounds.
"I do this because its my
calling. I love what I do. It can
be difficult at times and it
definitely takes God. I love
each and every one of these
kids and it's really hard to let
them go," she said.

GOLD CITY


Sunday, ,-

Feb. II "
6:30 p.m.








For more than 20 years, the words Gold City have been synonymous with
Southern Gospel Music. As one of the most awarded groups ever, this
traditional male quartet has taken their music across America and around the
globe, spreading the message of God's love and redemptive power
everywhere they go.
With more than 30 projects recorded, the group that originated in the gold rush
town of Dahlonega, Ga., has amassed a collection of music that serves as a
home for some of Southern Gospel's most popular songs, including, "Midnight
Cry," "I'm Not Giving Up,: and the Dove-award-winning, "There Rose A Lamb."
Now, with two new faces and a brand new recording, Gold City stands ready to
embark on an exciting new journey, one which will lead to new roads, new
faces, and new opportunities.
Whether in the studio or on the road, the members of Gold City, each have a
strong concept of the tremendous legacy they bring with them to the stage
each and every night. Gold City's history includes more than great music. It
includes a consistent commitment to tlie message of salvation found in Jesus
Christ.
It is this commitment that continues to fuel the success of Gold City. It is this
purpose that gives life to their music and strength to their souls. Together, Gold
City continues to do what they know in their hearts they were made to do. This
will not change. And it is for this reason that Southern Gospel will always know
and love the music that is Gold City.

Everyone Welcome!

BC livestock team competes in Denver


BY WENDY BURTON
Special to the Telegraph
In April of last year, the
Bradford County 4-H livestock
judging leam pLtce+ ,deoodjn,40
the slaue contest and v'.on the
right to represent Florida at the
National Western Stock Show
Round-Up in Denver.
Since that time, team
members Abigail Crawford,
1yan Crawford and Dakota
Reddish have put in many
hburs studying at home and
t veling throughout North
1,orida, practicing their
judging techniques.
,On Jan. 4, the team loaded
u for its adventure and flew
o0t to Denver. The members
v~oke up to many inches of
snow their first morning there,
aid it continued to snow for
tlge rest of the day. They took
aDvantage of the snow and
Nient sledding in a park,
enjoying the cold, snowy
weather we never get in
AForida.
'The rest of the day was full
of sightseeing and getting
ready for the big competition.
Team members tried to go to
sleep early, figuring they
rkeded plenty of rest, only to
be awakened by the hotel's fire
alarm at 12:30 a.m. They ran
downstairs to find people
celebrating in the hotel lobby
and the front desk attendants
tilling them that someone had
pulled the alarm and that there
Was no fire. So the team
rpembers tried to go back to
sleep, only to be awakened 10
rpore times by the alarm.
Finally, after about 2 a.m., it
Was silent.
"The commotion made
leaving the hotel at 6:45 a.m.
that next morning a little
lirrder to do, but the team
rnembers all made it.
. The contest began at 8:30
a4m. and comprised four
classes of beef cattle, three
classes of sheep and three
classes of swine. Team
members judged animals until
13:30 a.m., then went back to
headquarters for lunch.
SAfter lunch, each contestant
had to give six sets of oral
reasons, defending their
position on how they placed
certain classes. This lasted the
r st of the afternoon and the
team members were finally
done at approximately 4 p.m.
Needless to say, they were all
hungry and tired. So they went
tO dinner that evening, but later
found some energy to go ice
skating.
;The awards breakfast was
held the next morning at 7:30
a.m. The team from Colorado
won the competition, but the
Bradford team placed 19th out
of 30 teams. Team members
were very proud of their


accomplishment since it was
the first time.a Bradford team
had ever been to this contest.
Team members did more
sightseeing that afternoon and.
also spent some time-at the
National Western Stock Show
visiting different booths and.
looking at cattle from around
the United States. Many
members also attended one of
the many rodeo events that
span the length of the Stock
Show.
The team would like to once
again thank all of the
businesses and individuals for
the support that made it
possible to compete in Denver.


A big thank you goes to Brad
Muse and Jamie Whitehead for
their time and coaching.

, Students may apply now for

j. Lila Rae Yawn scholarship


The Bradford High School honor band director, David Baldwin with students
Houston McClain, Lindsey Solze, Marjorie Carney, Cherie Perkins, Meredith
Prevat, Craig Leon Guerrero, (sitting) Melanie Luciano, Veronica Harris, Kristen
Rodgers and Jennifer Pharis. Carney and Rodgers are both all-state finalists this
year.


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Applications are now being
accepted for the Lila Rae
Yawn Memorial Scholarship,
which will award $500 to a
student to attend Santa Fe
Community College.
Interested students may pick
up applications at the office of
the First United Methodist
.Church of Starke. The
recipient, which will be
selected by the United
Methodist Women scholarship
committee, will be announced
in May.
This scholarship was
established last year by Starke
resident Carolyn Eaves. She
said there had been talk of
establishing a SFCC
scholarship in Yawn's name
since her death in 1999. Seven
years passed, however, and
nothing had yet been done in
honor of the woman who
devoted 11 years of her life to
working for Santa. Fe.


"I was really unable to get
the required amount of money
for it to be an endowment
through Santa Fe, so I'm trying
a different approach," said
Eaves, who is currently
funding the scholarship.
Kasey Eaves, a 2005
Bradford High School
graduate, received the
scholarship last year.
"I was honored to be chosen
as the first recipient of this
scholarship," she said.
Kasey Eaves, who is
currently attending the
University of Florida,
graduated from Santa Fe in
2006. She participated in dual
enrollment since her
sophomore year in high
school.
At UF, she is majoring in
speech pathology.
"I just find it fascinating,"
Eaves said, adding she wants
to eventually have a career
working with children.
Eaves said she is glad she


went to Santa Fe rather than
going straight to UF out of
high school. She thinks other
students would benefit b-'
taking advantage of th.
community college's loc ;
presence as well.
"I think it kind of gets yo6
used to' college life before
you're thrown into it," she
said.
Yawn, during her tenure at.
Santa Fe, played a big part in
helping Bradford County
students make that adjustment
to college life. In fact, she was
often the first face students
saw during the college's early
years in Bradford County.
Yawn and former Andrews
Center Director Bernie
McFadden were the only full-
time employees based in,
Starke at the time.
"For my children, Lila Rae
was Santa Fe," said Carolyt.
Eaves, who had four children
at Bradford High School

Bradford Middle School honor band director Dustin Adams with students Megan
Starnes, Austin Winkler, Rachel Baier, Johnathan Johns, Chelsea Hamby,

clarinet, and Kristen Rodgers,

year's all-state completion held

This year's honor band also

clarinet in the all-state


competition.
In preparation for the
concerts, all of the students

director of Music at Lincoln
Middle School in Gainesville,

Williams, dean of integrated
arts for Duval C'tunty p.ublicb

Local welding program offers in-demand career


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
One student is still in high
school and is learning the
skills that will lead to a career
that is high in demand.
Another student, an adult
who served 20 years in the
Navy, is learning skills that
will complement those he has
already learned in order to be a
Harley Davidson mechanic.
They are different ages and
have different needs, but
Trevor McKinley and Jon
Pagh have both found wha:
they are looking for in the
applied welding technology
program at the Bradford-Union
Area Career and Technical
Center.
McKinley is a junior at
Bradford High School. He has
already undertaken racing cars
and would like to continue to
pursue that interest in the
future. However, he wants to
make sure he has a career to
fall back on.
Thanks to the
secondary/post-secondary
program at the Career and
Technical Center, he can do
just that.
"It's great," McKinley said
"I"m glad they do this-le;
high school students come
over here. It gives some of us a
good chance to make it and be
somebody."
Pagh, after serving in the
Navy, went to the Motorcycle
Mechanics Institute in Orlando
to learn how to be a HarleN
Davidson technician. He was
interested in learning how to
weld so he could do his own
headwork, so the Middleburg
resident was all set to fill out
the necessary paperwork to
enroll at Tulsa Welding School
in Jacksonville..
That never happened as j


friend told him about the
Career and Technical Center in
Starke. Pagh said he decided to
visit the center, saying it would
be a lot more convenient for
him to drive to Starke than to
than the West side of
Jacksonville. He met with
instructor Mark Geiger and


took a tour of the welding
shop.
Pagh came away from that
visit believing he had found a
place that would provide himrr
with the same skills and
opportunities as a full-fledged
welding school at a lesser cost.
It was an easy decision. he.


said, to enroll in the Career
and Technical Center program,
and a little more than a month
later, he has not regretted that
decision.
"It's all right here," Pagh
said.
Whether it's a high school
student or an adult, successful


completion of just one of the
six areas of certification will
provide the skills necessary to
get a job (a high school student
cannot be employed in a
welding shop right away,
however, until the age of 18).
"They can get a job with as
little as 250 hours in here at


completion point A, which is
welder's helper," Geiger said.
The other areas of
certification are as follows:
shielded metal arc (250 hours),
gas-metal arc (125 hours), flux
cored arc (100 hours), gas-

By Michael J. Brooks
Judson College professor of

co-authored an article
published in the summer/fall
2006 "Journal of the Kansas
Association of Teachers of
English" entitled, "The
Effectiveness of Literature
Circles in the College
Classroom: The Evolution of a

The article discusses the
change in an English teacher's
method of teaching literature
in his college classroom with
the help of an education
professor (Stringer), and her
desire to promote literature
circles (discussion groups)
across grade levels and
curriculum.
Stringer approached Dr. Eric
Sterling, professor of English
at Auburn University in
Montgomery, with a proposal
asking him to consider using
literature circles in his English
literature class. Sterling
attended Stringer's children's
literature class to observe hov
:literature circles were
conducted and became
interested. The particular
novel the students were

for him which led to his
incorporating what he had

comprehension and personal
engagement in the reading.

tungsten arc (175 hours) and
pipe (270 hours).
.-- St-udents are certified
through the-American Welders
Society. Geiger said the Career
Technical Center, at its own
cost, attempts to certify five
high school students a year.
Those who complete the
entire program can look at
getting a job that pays $10-$20
per hour, Geiger said. He cited
one student who was working
a minimum-wage job who
decided, to follow her father's
footsteps and become a
welder.
"The last I heard, she was.
making $18 an hour in
Middleburg," Geiger said.
There is a need for people
with welding skills.
"In the United States alone,
we're more than 20,000 short
on welders," Geiger said,
adding that by 2012, 30,000
welders will be needed.
Currently, there are seven
,adult students in the welding
program and approximately 30
high school students. Those
numbers are about the same
every year, Geiger said.
Students, as you would
expect, learn the skills of the
trade, but they also learn
something else-emplqyabilitc
skills. In other words, Geiger
makes sure students
understand what is expected of
them in the workforce. -
"That's what I mainly give
them," Geiger said. "My
advisory committee said if you
can teach them how to read a
tape measure, be safe and
show up to work, welding is
secondary. It's the same with
any job.".
For example, students are
expected to take what they've
-learned during one class and
be able to apply it during the
next class without a reminder
,. -from Geiger. When he.worked
in the industry, Geiger said he
came across ,employees who
.were-unable to continue a
p"" project from a previous day
without some type of guidance
from him.
"I don't do any of the
welding," he said. "The kids
do all the fabrication. I'll do
the layout or help with the
layout, but they're the ones
who are going to have to be
able to do it when they get in
the job force. They're only
going to be told once what to
do."
Also, students are expected


to be able to perform minimal
maintenance on the equipment
they use, such as changing out
gas bottles.
"One of the biggest parts of
becoming a professional-
welder is -being-able'to change
out little pieces of equipment
and take care of that," Geiger
said.
It is all part of, as Geiger
terms it, "training for the
industry," and it's an industry
he's plenty familiar with. He
worked 20 years at Boone
Welding in Gainesville. He
was a special metals welder for
10 years, then served as
general manager/vice president
for nine years.
"I know what the industry
needs," said Geiger, who was
also an adjunct professor at
Santa Fe Community College
for three years.
Pagh is impressed with the
knowledge both Geiger and
paraprofessional Richard
Platt--a retired
welder-possess.
"From these two guys,
there's a wealth of information
there to be tapped," Pagh said.
"They both have a great
amount of experience and
knowledge in the field."
Pagh added that both Geiger
and Platt are good at holding

the interest of the
students-adults and' high
school students alike.
As far as Geiger is
concerned, ,the high school
students are no different from
his adult students. He treats the
high school students as adults
because, in essence, they are
taking a college course. -
It is also another -wa of
preparing them to' enter the
workforce, and it 'is: a
satisfying part of Geiger's job.
"To see them gro\\ into
adults is the most rewarding
job I've ever. had." Geiger
said. "They all come back to
let me know how they're
doing." ..
Geiger said he has not had
one high school student yet
who has not been a success.
McKinley, though, is on his
way to becoming the first-ever
high school student to
complete the entire welding
program while still in .school.
Students typically have to.
return to the Career and
Technical Center as adults to
do so.
Not bad for a student who
admitted he was a little
overwhelmed by the program
at first.
"I was surprised at all the
stuff that was here and

"The whole vocational
center is really just a hidden
treasure down here, especially


for the adults who want to get

Geiger said anyone who is
interested in the welding

McKinley, too, encourages

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
In the words of her coach,
she has "dedicated herself to
being the best softball player
she can be" by spending
countless hours practicing and
working to improve as a
player.
That hard work has resulted
in Bradford High School
senior Kelly Riddick receiving
a scholarship from Central
Florida Community Collegz.
She signed a letter of intent on
Jan. 30.
"I'm really grateful for the
opportunity," Riddick said.
"I've been working really hard
for the past four years."
Bradford head coach Shane
McFadyen said it has been
great to witness Riddick's
perseverence. That is
something Central Florida
head coach Kristin Cox got a
taste of as well.
!"She's very persistent,
which is good," Cox said. "She
was sending me lots of e-mails
trying to get a tryout set up.
She wasn't pushy in any way
by any means. She knew what
she wanted and was going
after it."
At a tryout, Cox witnessed a
pitcher who kept her hitters off
balance with a variety of
pitches. McFadyen said
Riddick has three quality
pitches: a drop ball, curve and
change-up.
Riddick credited
McFadyen's brother, Jeremy,
with that. He has been her
pitching coach for the past four
years.
"He's helped me a lot,"
Riddick said.
While her pitching was
impressive, Cox saw some

Clemson standout Spiller talks at FCCD training event


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
For Florida Council on
Crime and Delinquency's
Chapter 5 training event, the
organization had someone
speak who knew a lot about
pressures and reaching goals.
Clemson football player and
2006 Union County High
School graduate C.J. Spiller
told the state's largest FCCD
chapter how he dealt with the
pressure of choosing a school
___and-nw-the-chalteTIges-f---
college football.
"My goal at Clemson is to
own every record as a running
back," Spiller told the crowd
gathered at Union Correctional
Institution's training building
last Friday.
Spiller said when you think
you want something you have
to have a plan to get it.
"Keep strong and pressing
on" is his motto, but he said he
helps his game by not drinking
and not smoking.
Spiller said he really felt the
pressure during his days in
high school when he was
constantly asked and advised
on what school to pick.
"I prayed to God and asked
him to lead me," Spiller said.
He said pressures from
others did not affect his
decision, but he did consider
what his family thought and
ho0w it would affect them.
"(My mornm wasn't feeling
Clemson," he said. "She 's a
big Gator fan."
"She went up there and saw
how Clemson was," he said of
the town he describes as "just
like Lake Butler, except with
more people."
Once he announced his
decision, Spiller said he again

Baford wrestlers take next step toward state


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
--Telegraph Staff Writer
Billy Brooks won the
championship in his weight
class, and he willjoined't this


week's Class A Region I
wrestling finals by eight of his
teammates after their
performances at the District 2
meet, which was held Feb. 2 at
Suwannee High School in Live


Oak.
Bradford coach Ian
Summerville was proud of the
nine-wrestlers who qualified
for the regionals, which will be
held Friday and Saturday, Feb.


9-10, at Matanzas High School
in Palm Coast. That's five
wrestlers more than qualified
for last year's regionals.
"They all worked really hard
to put themselves into the next
round," Summerville said.
Brooks pinned his first two
opponents en route to winning
the championship in the 135-
pound class. He was then
involved in a nail-biter in the
finals, pulling out a 9-8 win
over his opponent from
Wakulla.
"He dug down deep and
pulled it out," Summerville
said. "It was all heart."
Dylan White, despite being a
first-year wrestler as a
freshman, finished as runner-
up in the 130-pound class.
Six wrestlers earned third-
place finishes, including
Shawn Boyette, who "hit a
nice lateral drop,"
Summerville said, and Mark

Union girls just miss out on title


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was the closest they had
played Crescent City this
season, but in the end, having
to play two games just to get
into the District 6-3A girls
basketball final seemed to take
its toll on the Union County
Tigeis, who lost 37-35 on Feb.
3 at Matanzas High. School in
Palm Coast.
The Tigers (11-13) were
playing their second game in


as many nights. Head coach
Perry Davis said that had its
effect, especially since the
team was coming off of a win
against Keystone Heights in
the semifinals. He admitted the
Keystone game was a drain on
his team.
"You just don't play a
Keystone-caliber team and
walk away unscathed," Davis
said.
Still, the Tigers came close
to winning their first district
championship since 2000 and


have now qualified for the
regional playoffs for the
second straight year after a
five-year drought.
Amber Franzluebbers
recorded a double-double for
the Tigers with 15 points and
12 rebounds. Miranda Kent
almost pulled off the feat also
with 16 points and nine
rebounds.
Kent also led the team with
four assists.
The Tigers will now have, to
travel to Gainesville for a


regional quarterfinal game
tonight, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m.
against top-ranked P.K. Yonge
(23-3). Crescent City (13-4)
will host Newberry (11-15).

Things were not going well
for the Union County girls
basketball team. The Tigers
committed seven turnovers in
the second quarter, then
committed four more early in
the third quarter.
The Tigers eventually turned
the tables on the second-
seeded Keystone Heights
Indians, however, creating
easy-basket opportunities with
their defense in earning a 39-
31 win in the District 6-3A
semifinals on Feb. 2 at
Matanzas High School in Palm
Coast.
"Defense is the key," Union
head coach Perry- Davis said.
"That's something we've been
spotty on all season long."
The third-seeded Tigers got
good "D" when they needed it,
though-with a berth in the
regional playoffs on the line.
Union trailed by three points
early in the third quarter before
putting together a 16-2 run. It
started with a steal by Ashli'
Watkins, which led to a 3-
pointer by Miranda Kent, and
ended with a steal by Amber
Franzluebbers, which led to a
layup by Watkins.
In between, Watkins scored
on three layups following
steals, while Ashley Clemons
had a rebound score and
Franzluebbers a 3-pointer.
Franzluebbers had a total of
five steals in the quarter.
The Tigers led by 11 going
into the final quarter and held
onto that lead for the most
part. Keystone's Kim Russell
did make a jump shot just
inside the arc and added a free
throw to cut Union's lead to
eight, but the Tigers then got


consecutive 'layups by Watkins
and Franzluebbers. Watkins'
score came after receiving a
long pass from Franzluebbers,
who had just grabbed a
defensive rebound.
Franzluebbers' score came on
an inbounds pass from
Watkins.
Union led by as many as 14
points after Clemons made a 3-
pointer late in the quarter.
Keystone trailed for most of
the game, though the Indians
were able to take a one-point,
lead into the half.
The Indians trailed 11-5
before Abby Knabb scored to
send them into the second


quarter trailing by four. That
was the start of an 8-1 run.
Carey Taylor had field goal
and Knabb added a free throw
to pull Keystone within one
point. Franzluebbers had, a free
throw for Union County, but
Russell, after Franzluebbers'
miss. from the foul line, beat
the defense down the court for
an easy layup on an assist from
Knabb.
Taylor sank a free throw to
give Keystone a 13-12 lead,
but the Tigers grabbed it right
back with a foul-line jumper
from Franzluebbers.
However, Keystone would
go into the locker room up 15-

moves on in

shootout

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Union County basketball
player Amber Franzluebbers
has advanced to the regional
round of the Florida High
School Athletic Association's
inaugural 3-Point Showdown.
The competition began in
last week's district
tournaments, where two
players from each team were
selected to participate. Players
had 45 seconds to shoot three
racks of five balls each.
Franzluebbers made it
through three rounds at the
District 6-3A tournament. Her
opponent in the finals failed to
make a basket, so
Franzluebbers needed to make
just one basket to advance to
regionals. She did that and
kept shooting anyway until she
finished with seven made
baskets.
The regional shootouts will
take place at the sites of the
various regional championship
games on Saturday, Feb. 17.
There will be four regional
winners in each classification,
who will then compete at the

Telegraph Staff Writer
The Keystone Heights boys
soccer team 'had played for
regional championships the
past two seasons, but failed
both times to advance to the
state semifinals.
This year's team had the
goal of making it to the
program's first-ever Final
Four, but instead the Indians
made their earliest playoff exit
since the 2003-04 season,
losing 2-0 to Mount Dora in a
Region 2 quarterfinal match on
Feb. 1.
Mount Dora (9-9-2) played
Winter Park Trinity Prep (7-9-
3) this past Tuesday in the
regional semifinals. The
Hurricanes got goals from
Hector Tijernia in the 37"'
minute and Bradley Mosher in
the 78th minute.
Keystone (16-6-4), which
had put together a 12-game
winning streak at one point,
lost five of its last eight games.

first quarter and started the
second quarter by missing
eight of nine attempts.
"I think the girls were
nervous early," McFadyen
said.
Bradford finally got things
going, making seven of 10
attempts to rally and take its
three-point halftime lead.
.Griffin drove the lane for a
layup, which was followed by
EbQny Smith's 3-pointer and
Slocum's long-distance 2-
pointer. Slocum then scored on
a layup while drawing a foul.
She made the subsequent free.
throw, pulling Bradford within
18-15.
Keita Goodman scored
down low off of an assist from
Slocum. Slocum then came up
with a steal, passing the ball to
Griffin, who fed Khalaa Hill
for' a layup. That gave
'.Bradford its first lead .of the
game.
Griffin and Hill teamed up
again when Santa .Fe
committed an unforced
turnover seven seconds before
halftime. Griffin drove into the
lane and wrapped a pass
around her back. Hill, the
recipient, converted another
layup for the last basket of the
half.
In all, Santa Fe committed
18 turnovers in the first half
and 24 overall. Griffin, Slocum
and Jerica Warren all had
steals in the second quarter,
while Warren also blocked
three shots.
"I think our defense turned it
around (in the first half),"
McFadyen said.
Hill joined Slocum in double
figures with 11 points also,
while Goodman contributed
seven points.
'Griffin had nine assists and
nine steals.
Note: If Bradford wins its
regional.quarterfinal game, it
will host either, top-ranked
Pensacola Washington or
Tallahassee Godby in a
semifinal game on Tuesday,
Feb. 13, at 7 p.mi.
,Also, Bradford's record now'
reflects one loss instead of
two. Potter's House, which
defeated the Tornadoes on
Dec. 19, had to forfeit all of its
games because of a Florida
High School Athletic
Association rules violation.
o)tter's House was 22-0 and
rked nunib'Tmhe in Class A.
