School board

approves 22

majors for

high school
Every eighth-grader
going to high school
next year will choose
a major

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
High school seniors have
always felt the pressure of
what to do after they graduate.
Do they take a job or -go to
college? If they go to college
what will their major be?
Now, that pressure will,
come a little sooner for
students.
Every eighth-grader that will
be entering high school next
year will have to declare a
major in order to comply with
a new Florida Department of
Education graduation
requirement.
In December, DOE
approved 442 major areas' of
interest statewide, and in the
Feb. 13 Uniou County School.
Board meeting, board
members approved 22 majors
that will be available to
students at Union,County High
School. Majors also available
to The Outpost and Three
Springs-Union Juvenile
Residential Facility students
are noted in parentheses.
These major areas of interest
are Agriscience and Natural
Resources Education (Outpost
and Three Springs), Assistant
Automotive Detailing
Specialist, Business
Technology Education,
Drama-Theater Arts (Outpost),
Florist Assistant, Health
Science Education, Computer

eighth-grade students can
complete an ePersonal Planner,
an interactive course planner
for middle and high school
students, based on .the major
area of interest and on their
educational goals. Students can
locate the high school they will
attend and review the major
areas of interest that will be
available, according to a DOE
press release.
Union County Schoo'l
District's Director of
Curriculum and Instruction
Bobbie Morgan explained
during the last school board
meeting that students will need
24 credits to graduate. This
will be made up of 16 required
courses, four elective courses
in a student's major and four
additional electives (could be
used as a minor or for other
classes that interest the
student).
However, the state only
requires a student to be
enrolled in a major each year
to graduate. It does not require
students to complete a four-
year major. This means a

one year, but ftlc-i chose a
different major and the next
year.
Morgan said the goal is to
have students complete a
major by taking courses in the
.same subject over a four year
period. If students do so, they
will receive a
certificate-stating they have
completed a major-with their
high school diploma upon
graduation.
DOE Commissioner John
Winn said Feb. 7, "I am
excited that next year's
incoming high school students
will be the first to have the
opportunity to choose an area
that interests them. I have been
.talking with eighth-grade.
students around Florida and
they are excited about studying
areas of interest to them.
"Students show no hesitation
about selecting an area of
interest because they know
they are free to change
direction," he said. "Our
students are more goal oriented
than we give them credit for."

Saturday's event, these teams
will keep track of each
member's number of steps per
day. Whoever has the highest
number of average steps, will
receive a traveling trophy
(donated by Kirby Laser &

Black History Club promises dazzling extravaganza


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
February is. Black History
Month, and the Union County
High School Black History
Club will be celebrating with
its annual event.
The Black History-
Extravaganza will be held this
Saturday, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m. in
the UCHS auditorium.
Admission is $5.
The event's theme this year
is "Pure Elegance-A Black
and White Affair."
Club sponsor Dot Green said
the theme is reminiscent of the
era of Ella Fitzgerald and
Dorothy Dandridge.
, Gospel choirs, singers,
dancers and other performers
aim to entertain, educate and
enlighten, guests about black
history. A special guest emcee
will be there.
Green said of the club's
major fund-raiser for the year,
"The extravaganza will razzle
and dazzle you."
The club has approximately
60 members this year and has


participated in food drives,
community service- and'
annually takes field trips to
historically black colleges
throughout the state. ,
As part of Black History
Month, facts have been read
over the intercom every school
day during February.
The Black History Club also
extends to the Brain Bowl
Team, which is headed up by
teacher Mary Jackson. Seven
members can compete at once
on facts they have learned
about black history.
Green said Black History
Month was a chance for every
person, black or white, to
become educated about black
history.
"African Americans don't
just do rap," she said.
A skit at the extravaganza
will specifically address this
topic.
Many people, even African
Americans, do not think black
children can be successful if
they are not rappers or athletes.
"In history class, they're not


taught that an African
American invented the cash
register or the glue for postage
stamps," Green said.
The more she researches, the
more she finds out and shares
with the students in the club.
"Although we can't educate
everyone in 28 days, it's a
start," Green said.
The Black History
Extravaganza is sure to have
something for everyone to
enjoy.
"Come out and we're going
to have a good clean, soulful
event," Green said.

The history of
Black History
Month
Black History .Month was
first celebrated in 1926 as
"Negro History Week."
This month is believed to
have been established by Dr.
Carter G. Woodson, an African
American born to slaves.
He went to high school
when he was 20 and finished

in two years. He later earned a
Ph.D. from Harvard.
Finding that the history of
African Americans was largely
ignored in textbooks, he set out
to change this.
The establishment of Negro

County decides on library architect


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
In a special meeting of the
Union County Board of
Commissioners held Monday
night, Clemons Rutherford &
Associates Inc. was selected as
the architect for the new
library project.
The board approved for
Chairman Wayne Smith to
start costnegotiations with the
firm.
Presentations were given to
the board by three candidates:
Akel Logan Shafer, Clemons
Rutherford & Associates Inc.
and Skinner Vignola McLean
Inc.
The firms were ranked on a
percentage scale based on
location of the firm,
knowledge of Union County,
experience on similar projects,
qualifications, workload,
workable approach, financial
responsibility and familiarity
with state requirements.
Clemons Rutherford &
Associates Inc. is the firm that


"What are you going to do
after high school?" is a
common question faced by
seniors at graduation time.
Unfortunately, many high
school students have no idea
what they are going to do after
graduation and have no clear
focus in a career or in
furthering their education.
Stacy Worrell and a team of
instructors at Union County
High School (called the
"Business Academy
Leadership Team") are
embarking on a way to bring
career focus and college
preparation opportunities to
students at Union County High
School. Creating a business
academy will help students
reach an understanding .of
career goals and close the gap
between high school education
and the world of work.
The Business Academy is
planning to offer training in
the areas of digital design,
business management and
accounting. These courses
.- provide qppqEWypities such as
earning a nationally
recognized industry
ce titication, job shadowing,
possible internships, earning
college 'rediit,. receiving
scholarships, gaining
membership in FBLA and
learning to apply business
applications through math and
English classes.
In addition, students will
create practical applications as
classroom projects for local
business partners. What a ,'ricat
motivation for students!
Being in volled in the
Business Aca.dem) will answer
this common question that
seniors face of what to do after
high school. UCHS will be on
the leading edge of education
in offering these new options
to students. The Business
Academy will focus on,
program completion so that
academy students will have
specific business skills that
will lead to greater
opp,-rtunitie, after they

Only four percentage points
separated the two as the top
candidates in ranking by Smith
and Commissioners' Karen
Cossey, Red Clyatt and Morris
Dobbs (Ricky Jenkins was not
present for this portion of the
meeting). If negotiations,
cannot be reached with the
Clemons firm, Skinner will be
contacted and negotiations will
begin again.
Funding for the library,
estimated at $1 million or
more, will be a major concern
throughout the process.
Library Director Mary
Brown and the commissioners
asked candidates during the
meeting of their familiarity

be used to cut costs, and

the academy are to increase
student motivation, increase
the graduation rate, provide a
rigorous and relevant
curriculum, help improve
student achievement, build
strong and meaningful
relationships, and prepare
students for life in a business
career and/or for post-
secondary education.
Members of the Business
Academy Leadership Team
have visited model business
academies from several
schools within the state of
Florida. These successful
academies provide examples
for UCHS to follow while in
the planning stages of
development. The team has
combined its efforts with
parents, local businesses (see
list below) and Lake City
Community College to help
prepare this business academy
to reach it fullest potential for
implementation at the
beginning of the 2007-2008
school year. .
UCHS will host a parent
orientation in the upcoming
weeks to provide more specific
information about the academy
and its development. If you
have any questions, comments
or available support regarding
this program, please contact

instructor at (386) 496-3040,

Even with the use of
inmates, Brown said they
would rely heavily on grants,
private donors and fund-raisers
to come up with funding.

Following the special
meeting, the commission held
its regular meeting.
The chair of the North
'Florida Economic
Development Partnership,
Linda Myers, requested the
commission join the
partnership as a Rural Area of
Critical Economic Concern.
In 2003, Gov. Jeb Bush
named Union and 13 other
counties as areas of concern
for not having the financial or
staff resources to promote
economic development.
Agreeing that the county
needed some sort of
development resource, it
agreed to join the partnership
at a cost of $731 (5 cents per

board, one which will be filled
by Cossey.
The state will match these
funds dollar for dollar and
private fund-raising will be
used, as well.
Other partnerships in the
state have received significant
grant funding, Myers said, and
she hopes that the partnership
will do the same for north
Florida.
The commission also voted
5-0 to hold a public hearing on
the additional homestead
exemption for low-income
seniors.
In section 196.075 of the
state constitution, county
commissions have the option
to allow up to an additional
$25,000 homestead exemption
for seniors, 65 years and older,
who make less than
$20,133.83 a year.
Because this would. not
affect many residents, the
commission decided to hold a'
public hearing on the matter at
a later date.

The weather is again turning
cold. While this is not a
problem for an elder who can
pay their electric bill, it is
cause for concern for one who
cannot. This is where the

Jr, Sr FFA chapters continue growth in Lake Butler


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Union County's FFA
chapters have a long history of
high standards, and this year is
no exception.
During National FFA Week,
Feb. 17-14, the theme is Blue
Jackets, Gold Standards.
Whether FFA members at
Lake Butler Middle School or
Union County High School are
wearing those blue dress
jackets or not, they still try
their best to be the best.
The Lake Butler Sr. FFA
Chapter at UCHS has 247
members this year. This is the
largest membership in the
history of the local
organization.
FFA adviser and agriculture
instructor David Harris said
they wouldn't know until the
end of the year if it is the
largest in the state-a title they
have held in the past-but it is
definitely one of the largest
chapters in the state. ,
In recent years, the National
FFA Organization has
expanded from its farming
roots to accommodate the
technological age.
An agriculture
communications class was
added two years ago, and this
is also one of the 18
competitions FFA members
can compete in at the local,
state and national levels.
Having achieved national


recognition for some of their
teams, the senior FFA chapter
will try to match that effort this
year with the following team
and individual competitions:
poultry, prepared and
extemporaneous speaking,
parliamentary procedure,
tractor driving, ag. mechanics,
ag. business management,
forestry, livestock, ag. issues,
ag. communications, land
judging (new this year), meats
(new this year), ornamental
horticulture.demos, vegetable,
environmental science and
food science.
Already on their wvay this
year are the poultry and
livestock judging teams. The
teams, taught by Harris and
LBMS ag. instructor Scott
Register, have qualified as the
highest teams at the Tampa
State Fair during the past two
weekends.
These teams, once narrowed
down to the final members,
will compete at the' state
competition at the University
of Florida on March 31. The
winner there will attend
national competition.
Besides judging events, FFA
members have submitted
proficiency applications; 17
have applied for national FFA
scholarships; and 12 will earn
state degrees.
These are no small
accomplishments. Each
requires participation in


Janae Liptrap (left) and Jonna Jackson enjoy the
Beast Feast. It is part of the many cookouts the FFA
,,has throughout the year. ,..


competitions, ag. projects and
other events. Some members
will also show animals at the
Bradford-Union County swine,
breed and steer shows at the
fair in March.

Former UCHS
student becomes
new ag. teacher
Amanda James has joined
Harris and Tom Williams at
UCHS as an ag. teacher.
James grew up on a chicken
farm in Brooker with her
brother and sister. She started
attending Union County
schools in the seventh grade.
She was a member of the
junior and senior FFA chapters
for a total of six years, guided
by those teachers who are now
her co-workers and mentors.
"I was really involved as a
high school FFA member,"
James said.
Holding offices at the local
level, she went on to become
the state FFA president after
she graduated as salutatorian in
2001.
She said the experience and
leadership roles that FFA gave
her led her to become an ag.
teacher.
James said she had hard
shoes to fill after Charlotte
Emerson took a job at UF.
"It was hard to come in after
there was such a respected and
. successful teacher," James
said.
Emerson was one of James'
mentors in high school and
that role continued this year as
James took the teaching
position.
"She helped me get
established," James said,
remembering that she often
phoned Emerson for help
during her first few months at
UCHS.
"I really love and appreciate
the people of Union,County
when I was a student and now
that I'm a teacher," she said.
James has been married for
almost four years to her
husband, Glen, and they have a
dog named Harley.

With a little extra effort, Caleb Williams prepares to show how to work a show
steer during the day set aside for eighth-grade recruitment.


Jr. FFA Chapter has
approximately 100 members
this year.
While last year' was the
highest for membership, FFA
adviser and ag. teacher Scott
Register said he believes the
organization will continue on
its growing trend.
He said the goal for the
middle school program is to
get students interested in what
is available at the high school
level and beyond.
"We touch on agriculture
careers' and give students that
initial exposure to determine if
they are interested in the high
school level," he said.
Register has been teaching
at LBMS for 13 years. He has
seen the educational
environment get more
technologically savvy, but he
said if students are exposed to
agriculture, they usually like it.
"The goal is just getting
\them in and getting them to try
it," he said.
He said once most kids learn
that it's more than just going

Local man paints to deal with accident effects f|


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
If you wanted to sum Lip
Union County resident
Michael Deal's life in a few
words, it could be "anything's
possible."
Deal, 51, and his wife,
Diana, have lived in Lake
Butler for 16 years.
Deal enjoys painting
panoramic scenes on ostrich,
emu and the occasional
chicken egg.


On this ostrich egg,
Michael Deal painted a
church scene. He
enjoys adding little
details, such as the
stained glass windows.

Having the patience to paint
on these small surfaces is
something that has come to
Deal with time.
With emergency medical
technician training and a job at
the Reception and Medical
Center-then North Florida
Reception Center-Deal was
not used to taking life easy.
In the fall of 1996, though,
he was forced to re-examine


his priorities when a car rear-
ended his motorcycle, causing
him to be thrown off.
Taken to a trauma center in
Jacksonville, he had injuries,
including a fractured hand, but
he was able to recover.
Later, however, he
developed reflex sympathetic
dystrophy. This condition
affects the nervous system,
causing nerves to send
constant signals of pain to the
brain.
It can cause burning,
stiffness, swelling and
discoloration of the hand, and
it happens after 5 percent of
accidents, according to the
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
Syndrome Association.
Now in a motorized
wheelchair, Deal is limited to
what he can do and spends
most of his day indoors.
Finding something to do
with his time, however, was
not hard. Deal had loved to .
draw since he was a child.
Born two months premature
in 1956, Deal had breathing
problems and was at risk for
measles and mumps, as were
most children at the time.
His parents moved the
family from Indiana to Florida.
Deal's health -eventually
improved, and like most
children, he enjoyed anything
other than homework. His
main love became drawing.
He went on to spend six
years in the Army and was
married in 1979. Before
training to become an EMT, he
briefly worked at the Norton
Art Gallery in West Palm
Beach, where the Deals lived
at the time.
Although, art with his first
love, Deal decided he needed
to take a better job. The job at
NFRC was what he continued


to do until his accident.
"Some days he would ask
why it happened to him,"
Diana Deal said.
Bringing art back to the
forefront, the accident helped
him realize how to feel the
void he experienced after he
could no longer work.
Deal began to paint after
learning techniques from Bob
Ross' TV painting classes on
PBS.
Deal found his favorite thing
to paint on were eggs with oil
paints. He uses ostrich and
emu eggs because they are
larger, but he has completed a
few hen eggs. He paints on
canvas, too.
"Sometimes he's really
shaky," Diana said. "He turns
out some really pretty ones,
though."
Deal paints churches,
bridges, and winter and other
nature scenes. His wife said his
ideas come from things he has
seen while traveling or from
photos. With each thing he has
seen, he adds a little extra
something from his
imagination.
He curves the scenes around
the eggs. One egg can take up
to two weeks to finish,
depending on its size and
detail. He sells the artwork
when he's done.
To be featured in "The Art-
to-Art Palette" 2007 Winter
Edition (an Ohio/Indiana-
based art magazine), Deal's
wife said her husband's art has
given him a way to overcome
the challenges of life and know
that anything is possible.

Plum Creek

awards UF

program

$3,500
Funds to build
outdoor classroom
at elementary school
The Plum Creek Foundation
announced Tuesday that it has
awarded a $3,500 grant to the
University of Florida's
IFAS/SFRC Project Learning
Tree program and the Union
County Cooperative
Extension.
The funds will be used to
build an outdoor classroom at
Lake Butler Elementary
School. Complete with a
butterfly garden, pond and
greenhouse, the centerpiece of
the project is a 16 x 16 foot
pavilion that will allow up to
two classes to sit comfortably
while students listen to lessons
and participate in hands-on
exploration at tables.
The creation of an outdoor
classroom will encourage
teachers to take their lessons
outdoors and incorporate the
natural surroundings into their
teaching. Outside learning
encourages students to take a
closer look at their
surroundings and become
better stewards of the land.
"The Plum Creek grant is
vital to building this
classroom. Their support of
this program shows their
commitment to our community
and the education of our
children," said UF professor
Dr. Martha Monroe.
"Environmental education
helps make textbook learning
come alive and has been linked
to improved critical thinking
and student achievement."
The Union County
Cooperative Extension office
is coordinating the volunteers
and ini-kind contributions for
the project. The Rotary Club
and 4-H Youth Clubs are
among the many sources of
volunteers.
Project Learning Tree's
mission is to use the forest as a
window on the world to
increase students'
understanding of the complex
environment; stimulate critical
and creative thinking; develop
the ability to make informed
decisions on environmental


issues; and Lnstill the
confidence and commitment to
take responsible action.
The mission of. the Plum
Creek Foundation is to provide
philanthropic contributions to"
support and improve the
general welfare of life in the
communities that Plum Creek
serves. The Foundation board
meets quarterly, to review
applications submitted from
organizations in the Plum
Creek company's operating
communities. Visit the
community involvement page
on Plum Creek's Web. site at
www.plumcreek.com to
download an application.

Band students experience noted Indian musician


area would hardly
recognize-the sitar and the
tabla.
Burman began his musical
training in India at 6 years old.
."My parents kept me
focused," he said. "I wasn't
inspired to practice."
He found inspiration
somewhere along the way and
.went on to perform at the
Kennedy Center in
Washington, D.C. He has even
trained with Ravi Shankar, the
musician known for teaching
the Beatles about Indian
music. Once, Burman even
opened a show with George
Harrison.
Having his music featured in
an IBM commercial,
collaborating on the
soundtrack of "Mars Attacks!"
and having these noted
performances that will keep
him touring 170 days this year,
Burm.an still finds time to do
paid workshops at high schools
and colleges.
For an hour last week,
Union County High School
band members learned about
the fast-paced rhythms of
Indian mnjusic-on -the -sitar-and-
tabla.
"Indian music was based on
chanting," Burman said.

Historical society
seeks new
members
It has been more than 16
years since people gathered to
make plans for organizing a
Union County Historical
Society.
At one time, there were
more than 100 members who
were interested in passing on
to future generations the
history of the county. Many
interesting celebrations have
'been observed and this
organization was always ready
to do its part in making them a
success.
Meetings were held in all


Compared to music the
students are accustomed to, the
Indian music dates back
hundreds of years and is made
up of raga (melodies) and tala
(rhythms), few of which are
written down.
The sitar that Burman
played for the students is a 21-
string instrument made partly
of a pumpkin gourd. For this
reason, it is very fragile and
takes a long time to learn how
to hold. The tabla, which are
hand drums, was also
demonstrated.
, Weeks before Burman's
workshop, UCHS band
director Kelly Dorsey prepared
students by letting them watch
a video of Burman's latest.
Kennedy Center performance.
"This is going to be a once-
in-a-lifetime opportunity for
most kids," she said shortly
before his performance.
Burman emphasized the
importance of playing with
confidence, respecting your
instrument, practice and self
control.
These elements can make a
good musician, but he said he
hoped--to--"rn'fiivate their
,(students') minds."
Senior band member Walter
Littles said Burman's visit


areas of the county,
encouraging participation of
residents to join and be part of
this group for only $10 per
year.
The historical society has
prospered through the years.
With the donation of the old
two-story Townsend Building,
grants from the state and the
cooperation of city and county
officials, the museum was
dedicated in 2002. People
began bringing artifacts,
memorabilia, maps and family
genealogies. Most are pleased
with the cooperation of Union
County residents.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Response to

cross on

watertower_

In your article "Up or down:
Starke attorney says 'Trust
Me,"' Juanita Norman is
quoted as saying, "...we need to
stand up for our rights as
Christians."
What I would like for her to
do is show me, and everyone
else in this great country of
ours, where it is written that
Christians have the right to
place crosses on a city-owned
water tower and have the city
bear the cost of paying the
electricity for the lighting of
this cross.
Further, your article states
that "at least one petition was
signed by more than 400
individuals" in support of
keeping the cross up.
How many citizens are there
in this city? You say "more
than 400" how many more?
Eviderftly the majority of the
people did not sign a petition
in support of keeping it up.
Frankly, I don't care whether
it is up or down. But one gets
tired, of hearing Christians
complain about their rights;
rights that do not exist except
in their own minds. In their
blind seflishness they forget
the rights of other people.
And that's what is great
about his country; everyone
has rights. That's why we have
such a diversity of religions
(and non-religious people) in

Reader says,
'change is

coming'
Dear Editor:
My name is Lamar C.
"Lon" Bevill. I never hated
Christians or Christianity. I
just never used churches or
religion.
Years ago a Baptist preacher
told me I would go to.a church
... any church. When I again
declined, he physically attacked
me.
There is a new organization,
Secular Coalition of America,
the SCA for short. They are
basically the opposite of
Christianity and have
congressional lobbyists.
Basically, .they want church
tax exemptions on property
removed. One other thing they
wish to accomplish is removal
of religious signs and
decalomania from public areas,
like the Ten Commandments
stone put in the courthouse
basement.
I am one humble atheist out
of many millions and change is
coming. Keep your church,
just pay the property tax on it.
The community needs more
financial freedom from
excessive taxes for
homeowners and businesses.

Rebuild us...
Dear Editor.
Paraphrasidg in the Gospel
of Mark in chapter 10 verse 13-
16, Jesus says to suffer the
little children and,that whoever
does not accept the'kingdoniof


God like a child will' rbt enter
it.
At the age. of 44 with my
first child at 1 year old, I find
myself in a deep struggleiri a
town that purports itself to be
followers of Jesus Christ, yet
on the other hand does nottiake
care of its infants and toddlers
in a manner that elevates the
universality of Christ from the
beginning of life. The
youngest of our children seem
to be last while large church
buildings and stain glass come
first. I am vexed.
How can a nation survive
when the best playground in
town is located at McDonalds
or at government-sponsored
facilities? McDonalds is
corporate fast food and
government facilities have
removed all recognition of a
creator.
How can I allow my child to
watch state-sponsored cartoons
that have been thoroughly
sifted by Big Brother which
removes the omnipotent reality
of God within any context the
child sees or hears? How can, a
nation survive when daycare
centers believe that meals for
children should only have to
meet FDA standards? What
about higher standards for a
child's meal?
High intake of sugar in
young children destroys the
behavior between the brain and!
the palette which in turn affects
the behavior of the child's
development.
Where are the simple
playrooms with just wood
blocks and a spoon? Today, the
child's attention span is
shortened and ruined by the
inundation of too many toys
with too many gizmos. How
does a child develop an
attention span and an
imagination?
I believe Thoreau is right
with his phrase, "Simplify,
Simplify, Simplify!"
Commercialization of
children's play time, has reached
its apex along r with- state


powers that control- the-
youngest of our children's
learning theater.
I attend the Catholic Church
which is dying few young
attend; too many people are
-afraid- of -the- government
regulations to get involved
with faith related daycare.
I say we are cowards and
have repeated the transgression
which Jesus spoke about in the
most vividly mortal sense.
We have abandoned our
responsibility in the theater of
the very young. I was young
once and my formation of
conscious was formed and
cultivated within a degree of
turbulence that is on an
infinitesimal scale-to-4oday' s
young.
I beg of you, Starke, to rise
up and build us anew. A lot of
people thumb their nose at
Starke I am praying and
working that God is going to
use Starke as the chief
cornerstone that was rejected by
the builders. God can do so
much with so little. Let's
rebuild ourselves as an
independent body that asserts
the authority of Jesus Christ
and takes back our future from
the hands of the pagans. Let
Starke become a place where
God is embraced to such an
extent that the state is choked
out. Stand up and walk, Starke.

Mother
concerned
over incident
Dear Editor:
I am writing this letter as a
concerned parent and a member
of this community. I am the
mother of a mentally disabled
daughter, who attends Arc-
Sunshine Industries daily. This
organization has endangered
my daughter twice already.
The first time was about 15
months ago at Thanksgiving
time. The industry had its
Thanksgiving dinner at
Starke's Country Club. When
they arrived at the club they
unloaded the buses, and locked
them up. Then everyone went
inside to eat. Everyone, that is,
except my daughter. They did
not recheck the buses. She was
left alone on a locked up bus
for more than an hour. The
doors were locked and the
windows were up. Another


worker happened to- walk
outside and see her on the bus.
So they took her inside and
gave her water, right away.
They then found her something
to eat from whatever they had
left. By then, her friends were
done, and she had to have
Thanksgiving dinner alone. So
she was left out of all the fun.
The second incident was
more recent. .On Feb. 9, 18 of
the attendants at the industry
went on a field trip to
Marineland in St. Augustine.
At lunchtime they loaded the
buses to go get something to
eat. They drove to McDonalds,
then realized someone was
missing. .They had left my
-mentally challenged daughter at
the park alone. They called the
park to have someone find her,
but luckily, she had already
been found. They returned to
pick her up. She had been left
at the park, in St.Augustine for
at least an hour, with no
Sunshine supervision. Then
they waited until 10:30 a.m.
the next morning to tell me.
Let me explain something
about my daughter, she is 29
years old, yet she's got. the
mind of a five year old. Mary
has no sense of danger at all.
She is never to be left
unsupervised. She has been
very sick her whole life. She
has a brain cyst, shunt, and has
suffered from seizures in the
past. She has severe brain
damage. For the life of me, I
cannot understand how they
could legally get away without
watching her.
This was a public place,
anything could have happened.
She could have been hurt, or
even taken. I thank God for
watching over her again. The
laws should be more strict in
order to protect our disabled
,family members, who cannot
take care of themselves. I want
all the other parents and
guardians of the other
consumers at Sunshine to be
aware of what's happened, so
that maybe we could prevent
something really bad from
occurring. Unfortunately
accidents do happen, however,
there is no excuse for pure
neglect.
So, as a concerned mother of
one of these consumers, I felt it
was my duty to notify the
other families of this
community, of how the
supervision of our special
family members is at Sunshine
Industries. Cathy-Ash
Starke


Thank you to
community

for helping a

child
Dear Lawtey School and
community:
We want to give a very heart
felt thank you to Lawtey
School and all who took part
in the fund-raiser for Brandon
Lee.
You will never know how
much it means to our family
for all you have given and
done. It is amazing to see how
people you don't.even know
will come together to help a
child. We- asked God to bless
every one of you.
To our family and friends, I.
can never thank you enough. It
was very hard for me, as a
mother, to see my child in so
much pain. If I didn't have all
of you there with me, I don't
know how we would have
made it through.
From the very bottom of our
hearts, thank you for all your
help and prayers.
The family of Brandon Lee

plan World
Day of Prayer
On Friday, March 2, women
and men in more than 170
countries and regions will
celebrate World Day of Prayer.
Gathering at the Starke First
United Methodist Church at 11
a.m., the worship service will
use the theme, United Under
God's Tent. The women of
Paraguay planned the prayer
service as a way of imagining
how God acts. For Abraham
and Sarah, God was like a tent,
protecting them in their call. It
is also God's promise to us
and a call to work and to pray
together for people in need all
over the world.
Bring a friend to join in
prayer and song supporting
women's ecumenical
ministries toward justice,
peace, healing and wholeness.
The annual offering will
support the work of World Day
of Prayer and help meet the
needs of families in regions of
turmoil worldwide.
The worship service will be
followed .by a covered dish
luncheon.

Buying power for competitive prices


Planning to drive to Gainesville and spend most
of the day selecting flooring for your latest do-it-
yourself project? Keeping your fingers crossed
that the clerk you get isn't one who normally
works in kitchen appliances because you've got a
lot of questions about carpet and tile?
Don't do it. Just take a short trip down to Teal
Tile Carpet One in Starke and you'll find a wide
selection of flooring and a highly experienced
staff who can answer all your questions.
But what about the price? Those stores in the
bigger cities offer better prices, don't they?
No, that's a common misconception. Teal Tile
Carpet One belongs to a buying cooperative that
purchases flooring-for more than 1,000 stores in
the Southeast. The cooperative can buy flooring
in huge amounts to secure low.prices which are
then passed on to the customer.
You'll also find the selection is excellent. Teal
Tile keeps a variety of high-quality carpet,
wood, vinyl, tile and laminate flooring in stock
for immediate purchase. If the style you're
looking for isn't one of the wide selection in
stock, Teal Tile can order it for you and still
provide a highly competitive price.
They also stock everything you'll need to
install your flooring yourself. The expert staff
can answer your questions and guide you
through the project ...
Not so handy a handy-man? Teal Tile has a
highly experienced installation crew that can do
it all for you. Russ Hagerty has 37 years of


experience in flooring installation and he
handles a crew of installers who can complete
anything from one-room projects to large, new
homes to commercial buildings. Teal Tile's
installation crew has earned Carpet One's
designation as a "Five Diamond" store due to
their experience, training and excellent work.
Ken and Vicki Teal opened Teal Tile in 1976
and still run it as a family business. They live in
the community and care about their customers,
so customer service is a top priority. Whether
you are a homeowner looking for one lime-
green tile to match the counter you are repairing
or a contractor putting flooring .in a 2,000-
square-foot home when you visit Teal. Tile
you'll get courteous, personal attention from
someone who knows all about flooring.
"We concentrate on good customer service,"
said Vicki Teal. "We've lived here a long time
and we're not planning to go anywhere else. You
have to have good customer service if you're
going to remain involved in the community, and
we definitely are."
Teal Tile Carpet One can also offer financing
foi homeowners. You can get your new flooring
and finance it for three to 12 months, same as
cash. Other financing options are also available,

Service is our business


The day of the shadetree '
mechanic is over. Today's
vehicles are complicated,
high-tech pieces of .
machinery. So complicated,
that the average person will
probably not only not know
how to fix any problem that
arises, but may not even
understand what the problem
is once it is explained by a
technician. "^ .,

you need a repair service -
you can trust. The service .

"We not only explain what's wrong, but we have no
problem taking customers into the shop and letting
them see what we see."
Alexander and his technicians have more than 100
years of experience in automotive repair and
service... and not just in Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep
vehicles. The shop has a certified Ford technician
and technicians with plenty of experience working
on Chevrolet vehicles.
"We can service any make or model," said
Alexander, "and we provide a full line of service."

maintenance task you can think of. They even sell tires.
Beck also goes far beyond mere maintenance.

including major engine and transmission repair.

parts before the repairs can be made. With more than

blood of his department, said Alexander. "Some

Starke woman

participates in

SDaytona 500

pre-race show

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A lug nut may not sound like
much of a treasure, but it is if
it comes off of the car of a
NASCAR driver at the
Daytona 500.
Sgt. 1I" Class April Gibbs, a
member of the Florida Army
National Guard from Starke,
received such a gift after she
was selected to participate in
the Fox network's pre-race
show which honored members
of this country's armed forces.
Gibbs was accompanied by
her husband's grandmother,
Evelyn Goolsby of Starke. The
two were able to enjoy most
everything the race had to
offer as they received all-
access passes.
"We got to go everywhere
except the press boxes," Gibbs
said. "It was awesome. It was
wonderful."
Their passes allowed them
access to pit row, which is how
Gibbs came to acquire the lug
nut, which came from driver
Matt Kenseth's pit crew.
"That was beyond my
imagination," Gibbs said of
being in pit row.
Gibbs received an e-mail in
early February that informed
her 10 female members of the
Florida Army National Guard
were wanted to participate in
the pre-race show. The first 10
to respond would be selected.
Gibbs was the eighth such
member to respond.
She was allowed to bring up
'to three guests, and she chose
Goolsby. In fact, she said

See DAYTONA, p. 10B


Sgt. 1st Class April Gibbs (right) and Evelyn Goolsby,
both of Starke, are pictured at the Daytona 500. Gibbs
was one of many service men and women, present at
the pre-race show, which featured performer Kelly
Clarkson.

"Coming into a new town,

Fettkether said. "This town

There are four recruiters

Thursdays and noon-4 p.m. on
Friday. However, those hours
are not necessarily concrete.
"We work our schedules
around the community's

said, adding that recruiters are
willing to offer service during
evening and Saturday hours.

Area couple has renewed outlook on life


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
It's the kind of telephone
call that anyone dreads. You
answer the phone and a
familiar, yet very serious voice
on the other end says, "Just
listen. Don't ask anything."
Shane Redding was calling
his mother, Becky, to tell her
the bad news. Only he couldn't
get the words to come out.

Becky waited impatiently on


the phone ordering her son to
talk to her and tell her what
was going on. Her mother and
brother had just arrived at the
house that morning to see
Bec ky' s granddaugthers,
Haylie and Gracie, who had
stayed over the night before.
Becky became hysterical
and her granddaughters began
crying.
Suddenly, a tiny voice on
the other end of the phone
said, "Mimi, papa is in the
ambulance. His heart stopped.
Go to the hospital."


Exchange


students return


to Starke


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was an opportunity for
each young man to experience
a different culture, but what it
also resulted in was the
establishment of a lasting
relationship.
Diego Lopes and his
younger brother, Bruno, were
back in Starke recently,
visiting and staying with Arley
and Gladys McRae, who
hosted each as an Rotary
International exchange student.
Diego was an exchange
student in 1996-97, while
Bruno was one during 2004-
05.
Diego said he knows several
people who went through 'the
exchange program who do not
stay in touch with their host
families, buit the same cannot
be said of him or his.brother.
They each stay in touch with
the McRaes, who have also
visited Diego and Bruno and
their family in Brazil.
"It's just a big, big family
now," Diego said.
Diego had not been in Starke
in eight years, but he may soon
become a more familiar sight.
He is considering going back
to school to earn a master's
degree, and said he just might
attend the University of
Florida.
"It would be wonderful,"
Gladys McRae said. "He's like
a surrogate son."
Bruno, who is currently
attending college in Brazil,
said he, too, may follow in
Diego's footsteps-and those
of another brother, who earned
a master's degree at the
University of Virginia. If
Bruno does seek a master's
degree, there seems to be no
doubt as to where he wants to
go to do so. He said he not.
only wants to come back to the
U.S., but to this area.
"They've sort.of put down, I
guess you'd say, secondary
roots in Bradford County,"


Gladys McRae said.
Those roots started forming
during Diego's time as an
exchange student. It was an
experience he said he'll never
forget, though it was a struggle
for hjm at first.
"For three months I was
struggling to learn the
language," he said.
The McRaes could not speak
his language either, but they
did what they could to help
him.
"We had Post-its all over the
place with the English and the
Portuguese," Gladys McRae
said. "It was just a beautiful
experience to see him grow
into the English language."
Diego said Bruno, when he
came as an exchange student,
knew more English than he
did. Bruno said that came
about because his family,
which consisted of two other
exchange students (one sibling
came to the U.S. as well, while
another went to New Zealand),
began talking in English when
they didn't want him to
understand something.
Still, Bruno said the
language presented the greatest
challenge to him as well.
"I could understand it, but I
could not speak it," he said.
One thing the brothers had
no trouble adapting to was the
food.
"Everything about the food
was great," Diego said.
"She helped," Bruno said,
referring to McRae. "She's a
good cook."
Bruno especially liked this
country's version of Mexican
food, and McRae said both
Bruno and Diego loved beans
and rice.
Overall, though, there was
not much they would not eat..
"The only thing Bruno
doesn't like is grits," McRae
said. "Diego even learned to
like them."

It was Becky's six-year-old
grandson, Lane, telling her that
her husband Michael was
dying.
Just the afternoon before,
Dec. 27, Michael Reddish had
-left his home in Starke to make
the two-hour drive to
Steinhatchee, where the family
had recently purchased a
mobile home for, overnight
fishing'trips. His son, Shane,
was to meet him there later
that night with a truck load of
furniture for the home. He
brought his own son, Lane,
along for the trip.
The next morning, Michael,
Shane and Lane went out
fishing around 7:30 in the
morning.
"Twenty to 30 minutes into
it, Daddy started complaining
df his chest muscles and his
arms hurting him," said Shane.
Shane's father kept trying to
get comfortable, alternately
leaning over and then trying to
stretch himself out to lay down
on the boat as he still


complained of the pain,
Thinking that is was
probably just sore, aching
muscles from moving furniture
the night before, Shane gave
his father an Advil to help with
the discomfort.


Concerned, Shane kept
checking on his father who
kept insisting he was okay and
wanted to stay on the boat and
fish. Finally, Shane said, "To
hell with it, we're. going in."
Shane called the marina and


told them that he had a
possible heart attack victim
and needed an ambulance to
meet them at boat ramp.
It was a good thing he made
that call because the nearest
rescue unit to Steinhatchee was
nearly 30 minutes away in
Cross City.
Once they arrived, back at
the boat ramp, things started
spiraling downhill fast.
Michael began having trouble
breathing.
Soon, rescue arrived and the
paramedics loaded Michael in
the ambulance: Shane said that
he told them everything he
could remember as it
happened.
The paramedics worked on
Michael for about 15 minutes
before Shane was told that his
father was. experiencing
cardiac events and his
condition was unstable.
Michael needed to be air-lifted
to Shands Alachua General
Hospital. However, the flight,
team was on another run at the
time and they told Shane they

Hampton toddler has new surgery at UFP


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Earlier this month, 3-year-
old Eric Cagle Jr. of Hampton
became the first pediatric
patient at Shands of the
University of Florida to have a
tumor removed from his chest
using a surgical technique
known as thoracoscopy.
Formerly of the U.niversity
of 'Mississippi, Dr. Saleem
Islam joined the staff at the
University of Florida College
of Medicine as an associate
professor of pediatric surgery
only weeks before the surgery
was performed. He stated that
he had performed the surgery
numerous times before coming
to Florida.
Islam was assisted by,
pediatric surgeon Dr. David
Kays- who explained that a
thoracoscopy reduces the size
of the incisions patients
require, allowing for quicker
recovery time, less pain and
better cosmetic results.
Previously, such surgery
required a painful surgical
procedure called a
thoracotomy, where a large
incision is made between two
ribs and muscle tissue is cut
through and the ribs must be
split open in order to reach the
t-umor. Patients would
normally be required to stay in
the hospital a minimum of five
to seven days followed by

would save time by driving to
Cross City to meet the
helicopter.
It was at that point that I
realized just how bad things
really were," Shane said.
Shane followed the
ambulance carrying his father
to Cross City and that's when
he made that dreadful call to
his mother.
Becky fights back her tears
when she recalls the words
Shane spoke to her. Becky
arrived at the hospital ahead of
the helicopter.
The cardiologist confirmed
that Michael did indeed have a
heart attack. More specifically,
he referred to it as a
widowmaker.
"Now isn't that nice?"
Becky asked. "Here I sit
thinking that I could have been
a widow this Valentine's
Day."
The doctor told Shane that
he had, in fact, saved his
father's life. But Shane admits,
"I wouldn't of done what I did
if it wasn't for what had just
happened to my uncles."
Michael Redding is one of
seven brothers. The oldest
brother, lived with his family
in Pensacola.
Just before Thanksgiving,
the brother had gone to.his
doctor for severe indigestion.
The doctor gave him some
samples of Nexium and


through the other small
incisions. A biopsy is to be
performed on the tumor to
determine if it is malignant.

Eric Cagle Sr. said that
following a chest X-ray around
Christmastime, his son was
found to have pneumonia,
which showed as a cloudy area
on his X-ray, hiding the mass.
When Eric Jr. returned for a
follow-up visit, another X-ray
was done and that was when
the mass in his lower chest was
found.


Three-year-old Eric Cagle Jr. with his mother, April Cagle and father, Eric Cagle Sr.


several weeks of recovery after
such a procedure.
However, the minimally
invasive surgery performed on


released him.
On the way home; his wife
stopped to run an errand and
he waited in the car. When she
returned, he was slumped
across the seat, dead.
Ironically, another brother
was already in the hospital at
the time and received
quintuple bypass surgery two
days after the death.
On 'the way to the viewing in
Pensacola, yet another brother
began experiencing chest pains
the doctor chalked up to being
stress related.
He was still having pains
when he returned home to
Starke and it was found that he
was in need of angioplasty for
a blocked artery in his heart.
All of this has taken quite a,
'toll on -the entire Reddish
family. Even when Becky talks
about it today, she gets
emotional.
"You almost don't want to
answer the phone anymore,"
she said. "This has been a real
ordeal, quite a long'haul for us.
And it's not over yet."
Michael was found to have
several more blockages in his
arteries, but none were
'immediately life threatening.
At this point, the family
doesn't know what the doctor
will recommend for Michael.
He may need more stents or he
may need to undergo open
heart surgery.
Four out of seven brothers
had experienced cardiac
episodes within just a month of
each other.
Additionally, one more


Eric required only three one-
half-inch incisions to his right
side. A mini video camera was
attached to tubing inserted into


brother has since found out
that he had 3 blockages in his
arteries requiring stents.
Of the final two, one
received a clean bill of health
and the other has a pending
appointment to have his heart
checked.
1 Taking on a new
appreciation for life, Michael
hasn't let any of this stop him
from living life to its fullest.
Unfortunately for the
Reddish family, even with
doing everything right,
heredity is the cause. The
family has I a genetic
disposition to coronary artery
disease.
Shane said that the doctor
told them that regardless of
how well they take care of
themselves, inevitably, .each
will experience a heart attack
at some point in time.
"But, what we have to do is
make sure the heart attack is
put off from age 40-50 to age
60-70," added Michael.
Regular check-ups, eating
right, properly taking
medications including daily


his chest wall, allowing Islam
and Kays to examine the
tumor. Instruments to remove
the tumor were inserted


aspirin, watching cholesterol
and keeping weight under
check are all part of staying
healthy.
As for right now, Michael
must be cautious, taking only
short walks and not lifting
anything heavier than 15
pounds, including his
grandchildren.
"Any marriage has its highs
and its lows," Becky said. This
is just about as low as it can
get." With tears in her eyes,
she said, "I just love Michael
so much, I don't know what
I'd do without him."
This whole ordeal has
caused the Michael and Becky
to completely refocus on their
day to day activities, giving
paue' l,_ ieflct t .,n %.hat is
really inifm .r ntjii i1 ,ie "'
"You know, some .peopleget
.up each morning, dreading the
day, complaining about what
bad they think lies ahead."
Michael said as he awakens
each new morning, he opens
his eyes, takes in a deep breath
and says, "It's going to be a
good day."

Cagle said doctors were able -
to remove 99 percent of the
mass. "The doctors decided
not to risk removing the,
remaining little bit near Eric's

the surgery, he described Eric.
Jr. as "feeling fine and

"He brought us a
championship," McRae said,
alluding to the fact the Gators
won their first national
championship during Diego's
stay.
Diego also played on the
football team at Bradford High
School. He was the
placekicker, making 12 extra-
point kicks during the 1996
season.
The brothers still try to keep
up with what's going on in the
world of college football, but
that can be difficult in Brazil.

that much college football,"
Diego said. "They show only
the pro games."

agreed to teach Megan.

patient and kind." McKinney
took Megan as far as he could,

-"Mr. McKinney said he
believed music was a gift from

too," said Sharon.
"He said music has to be in
your soul, or it doesn't matter
how often you hit the right

why he was willing to teach
Megan. He could see she had
music in her soul."

for the Seminoles to win as
long as they were not playing
the Gators, but Bruno is having
none of that philosophy.
"Tell the FSU fans about
that," he said.
Diego found a lot of his time
here as an exchange student
taken up .not only by his
studies, but by his participation
on the football team as well.
Therefore, Diego did not help
Arley McRae with some of the
things that keep him busy,
such as stocking the shelves of
the Food Pantry.
During his recent visit,
Diego got that opportunity.
"I used to do that a lot, so
(Diego) got to do it this time,"
Bruno said.
Bruno, during his recent
visit, stayed with the McRaes
from Jan. 20 through Feb. 10.
Diego was there from Jan. 31
through Feb. 10. ..........
"I was in Orlando for a
business meeting, and I drove
up here," Diego said.
Diego works for an
American company called
Stryker that manufactures
medical devices. He has
worked for the company since
he graduated from college four
years ago.
Being an exchange student,
he said, helped him get the job,
which has him traveling to
different countries as well as
throughout the U.S.
"I got the job because I.
spoke English," Diego said. "I
knew a lot about the U.S."
Diego describes himself as
someone who cannot say no to
helping others. That is one
reason why he is considering
pursuing a master's degree in
business. People from his
home town in Brazil have
asked him to help with the
stressful environment in which
they live and to help with the
area's lack of economic
growth.
"They asked me. 'Hey, why

don't you go back to the U.S.
and get your master's, live
there and bring that knowledge
afterward to Brazil, to see what
you can do to change this
crazy environment that we live
in?' I said, 'Hey, that might be
what I want to do.'"
A job. A master's degree.
Those are things in Bruno's
future. Right now, he is in his
second year of college, where
he plans to major in business.
Aside from his studies,
Bruno also shares and
compares his experiences as an
exchange student with others
at his college. In a class of
approximately 50, he said he is
one of six students who went
through the exchange program.
One difference between
those students and Bruno is the
fact that he went to a part of
the U.S. where it does not
snow.-He delights in telling his
friends, "While you were
freezing, I was playing


basketball in the backyard."
Whether they experience
snow or not, or have a full
grasp of the language or not,
Diego recommends students
travel to another country as
part of an exchange program
and become citizens of the
world.
"This is a great experience
for young men and women
who are around 16, 17 years
old, to go to a different
country, learn a new language,
learn about other people's
cultures and be a part.of the
world, not only part of the
community that they live and
work in," Diego said.
Though their homes are
elsewhere, Diego and Bruno
try to stay in touch with the
friends they made in Bradford
County. If anyone would like
to drop them a line, they can
do so by e-mailing Diego at
dclopes@gmail.com or Bruno
at colicchiob@uol.com.br.

her instructor teach younger
children in a fiddle workshop.
"We taught them how to
'slide'," said Megan. "It was
really great to see them learn.
One little girl got so excited. It
was fun."
She also participated in a
"jam" session where musicians
from several of the different
groups got together to play
impromptu concerts. "That
taught us about the different
styles that different musicians
have and how to play with
them," said Megan. "That was
fun. too."
Megan said she loves
bluegrass and Irish folk music,
but said she plans for the
music to be a hobby. When she
graduates from high school,-
she'll be shooting for a
scholarship and an eventual
career in dentistry. "I plan to
minor in music, though,'" she
said.
The same discipline that
drives Megan to practice the
fiddle several hours a day, also
drives her to excel in her
school work.
Vickie said her decision to
homeschool the girls came
after much prayer and thought.
"I think homeschooling allows
a more natural progression
through school," said Vickie.
"If one of the girls is having a
problem in one area, we can
stop and work on that one area
until they grasp it. A teacher
can't do that with a large group
of kids."
The girls work on their
school work each day until
2:30-3 p.m. and then each one
-.practices-their instrument-does
their chores and has dinner
with the family. It's a pretty
typical day for any student
their age.
Since both girls are serious
about their studies and have
their eyes on college, Vicki
said'she makes sure they stay
on track with their curriculum
so there won't be any
questions at college entrance
time.
Vickie receives help with


curriculum planning and extra
school resources from a high
school in Orange Park.
"We're trying to make sure
they stay on track so they'll be
eligible for the Bright Futures
(state of Florida) scholarship,"
said Vickie. "They could take
easier math and science
courses and satisfy the
requirements for high school
graduation, but that wouldn't
help them reach their goals.
They chose to take the more
difficult classes."
When asked how she feels
about Megan's musical hobby,
Vickie said, "I'm very proud
of her. She has a sweet spirit
and likes to make people
happy. That's why she likes
the music, it makes people
happy."

Tornadoes' Hines goes 2-


2 in state wrestling finals


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford's Casey Hines
earned two wins in
wrestlebacks before being
eliminated in the quarterfinals
at the Florida High School
Athletic Association Wrestling
Finals, which were held Feb.
15-17 in Lakeland.
Hines (215-pound class) and
Bradford teammate Billy
Brooks (135) each suffered a
loss in the opening round of
the tournament. Brooks was
eliminated in the first round of
wrestlebacks, but Hines
recorded wins over North Palm
Beach Benjamin's Mario
Mendoza and Titusville
Astronaut's Jacob Storey en
route to a seventh-place finish.
The tournament began for
Hines with 'a loss to
Immokalee's Brian Rolle, who
advanced with a 19-7 major
decision. That put Hines into
the wrestlebacks, where he
defeated Mendoza 8-3.
Hines did not need long to
dispatch of his next opponent.
He pinned Storey in 1:24, but
Hines' run came to an end in
the next round when he was
pinned by Jordan .Scott of

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Falling behind 11-0 is not a
good way to start the
postseason, and the Bradford
boys basketball team failed to
really make a game of it,
losing 78-43 to 10'-ranked
Andrew Jackson in a Class 4A
regional quarterfinal game on
Feb. 15 in Jacksonville.
Jackson (20-9) hosted a
semifinal game against East
Gadsden (25-3) this past
Tuesday, while Bradford
ended its season with a 13-13
record.
Less than four minutes,
remained in the first quarter
before the Tornadoes made
their first field goal. They
missed their first seven
attempts and missed 11 of 13
overall in the quarter.
Bradford was able to make it
a six-point game on several
occasions in the first half, but
that would be as close as the
teamw6Ould get. -" '
The Tornadoes' first basket
was a rebound score by


Roderick DeSue. That
followed a missed layup-one
of several experienced by
Bradford.
Leonard Barnes did convert
a layup off of an assist from
DeSue that made the score I1 -
5.
Marcus Wilson blocked two
shots in the latter stages of the
opening quarter, but Bradford
failed to score another point.
Jackson's James Wesley made
a 3-pointer and Bernard
Nugent scored on a layup with
eight seconds remaining to
send the Tigers into the second
quarter up 16-5.
Bradford missed its first
three shots of the second
quarter, but the Tornadoes did
score the quarter's first five
points to make it a six-point
game again. Wilson had a steal
and successive layup to make
the score 16-8. Markael Moore
followed that up with a steal,
which led to a layup
oppo dtuinity' for'" Wilson.
Wilson missed the shot, but
Barnes was there to grab the


rebound and score.
The two teams exchanged
baskets, with a basket by
Moore-after a steal by
Eugene Blye-leaving the
Tornadoes trailing 22-16.
Jackson went on a 10-4 run
to close out the half, then
opened the third quarter with a
9-1 run. Calvin Buckholtz hit a
foul-line jumper to start the
second half and later made a 3-
pointer that put the Tigers up
45-21.
For Bradford, it was a
struggle to bring the ball up the
court as Jackson continued to
apply full-court pressure the
entire game. Jackson, already
leading 69-39 late in the game,
forced four backcourt
turnovers that led to six points.
Blye, with nine second-half
points, was the Tornadoes'
leading scorer with 10 points.
Wilson finished with eight,
while DeSue and Moore each
had six.
Bradford struggled from the
foul line, making only 9-of-23
free-throw attempts.
