BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Union County High School
head football coach Buddy
Nobles has resigned to take a
position at Fitzgerald (Ga.)
High School with former
UCHS head coach Robby
Pruitt.
Nobles, who coached the
Tigers for five years, as well as


serving as an assistant coach
for seven years, said it was not
a rash decision. He said he
prayed about the matter for
three or four weeks, finally
making the decision to leave
on March 10.
"I feel like the Lord's led me
up there," Nobles said.
At Fitzgerald, Nobles will
work alongside someone he


knows as well as anyone.
Pruitt, Fitzgerald's head coach,
hired Nobles as a coach at
University Christian in
Jacksonville in 1989, and the
two worked together until
Pruitt resigned as Union
County head coach after the
1999 season.
"I consider him a brother,"
Nobles said.
Still, it was not an easy
decision to make. Nobles and
his wife, Tammy, have lived in
Union County for 14 years..
"This is just a special place,"
Nobles said.
Carlton Faulk, Union
County's superintendent of
schools, said he was surprised
by Nobles' announcement, but
also supportive of the move if
Nobles felt that was what was
best for him and his family.
Faulk said he and the people
of Union County appreciated
Nobles' dedication to students
and how well-he worked with
the community.
"He'll truly be missed here,"
Faulk aid.
There is no set timetable for
hiring a new coach, 'but Faulk
said he would obviously like to
have someone hired prior to
the start of spring practice.
Nobles said he is not sure
when he :will join Pruitt at
Fitzgerald, but added he wouldd.
finish out the remainder of the
school year in Union County.
In five years as head coach,
Nobles compiled a 31-27
record. The Tigers were Class
2B runners-up in 2003, a state
semifinalist in 2004 and a
regional finalist in 2005.
The Tigers experienced
three consecutive winning
seasons before winning just
one game in 2006.

before moving up as offensive

1991.
SWhen Pruitt was hired as
UCHS head coach in 1993, he

Nobles got out of coaching
when Pruitt left for Fitzgerald,
but his absence lasted just one
year. He was talked into
helping out with the Lake
Butler Middle School team by
his oldest son, Kasey, who was
a LBMS player at the time.
On Jan. 8, 2002, Nobles was.
hired as UCHS head coach.
The Tigers are now looking

Worthington Springs beats cities in growth percentage


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Worthington Springs has
only 494 residents, so it doesn't
seem feasible that it could beat
out major cities such as
Orlando, Gainesville,
Jacksonville, Cape Coral and
Port St. Lucie when it comes
to a count of population.
However, in new study
conducted by the Bureau of
Economic and Business
Research at the University of
Florida, Worthington Springs


topped a list of 100 cities for
the most percentage change in
population.
This means the small town
'grew the most in population
percent, increasing 156 percent
from 2000 to 2006. Its
population went from 193
people to 494.
This growth can be
attributed to voluntary
annexations the city has made
in the last six years.
Worthington Springs City
Councilman John Rimes III


said in an interview Monday,
"We're real proud of that."
Rimes said the council has
high hopes for the continued
growth of the city.
"The city has received an A
plus on its budget, and we're
operating right now in the
black. We'll continue to work
hard."
, He cited continuous search
of road, fire and beautification
grants as proof that the council
members wanted to do all they
could to help better the city.


"We want to make
Worthington a nicer place to
live," he said.
"The city ... is actually a
bedroom community for
Alachua County," Rimes said,
explaining that those residents
are coming to Worthington to
seek a quieter place to live.
As the city works on its
image and funding for new
projects, he thinks growth will
continue to happen.
"Living in Union County is


great, but there are certain
things we are missing out on
due to lack of representation,"
he said. "I think we deserve the
best."
Union County as a whole
grew 47.8 percent in the last
six years, increasing from
10,166 to 15,028 residents.
This makes up .08 percent of
the state's population.
The only other 'city in the
surrounding area that made the
list was Raiford, which was 39
out of 100 cities. It has


experienced a
change, from
residents.

Fire hbuse, manager position top Lake Butler's meeting


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
The city of Lake Butler took
steps Monday to move along
with some of its major
projects.
The city commission gave
-city manager Richard Tillis
approval to contact the
architectural firm Clemons,
Rutherford and Associates to
proceed with plans for the new
fire station. This firm designed
the current city hall, as well as
the improvement for the
historical Townsend Building.
Tillis said there was a
general idea of what type of
building the fire department
would need.
Not looking at an overly
complex building. features
would include four to five
pull-through bays so fire trucks
can pull in and out from both


sides of the firehouse.
Secondly, a multi-purpose
-room would allow for
department meetings, training
and other uses.
One unique feature would be
that the city is looking to make
the fire department two stories.
The upper level would be
prepared for living quarters.
Tillis said even though the
second floor would not need to
be completed immediately, it
would leave room for future
expansion.
The Lake Butler Volunteer
Fire Rescue was formerly
housed in a two-bay garage
attached to City Hall on Main
Street.
Once the new city hall was
built at 200 S.W. First St., the
fire department was left
without a place to park its
trucks. They have now found a


temporary home at the city's
public works building by the
water tower on C.R. 231.
"We'd like to get some sort
of plan to start with," Tillis
said of the meeting with the
architects. ,
Once a rough plan is drafted,
the board members and others,
like fire chief Mike Banks, will
give their input to revise..the
plans. Finally, the project will
be bid out.
Tillis said he hopes the
project will be out for bid in
less than three months.
The commission accepted a
Homeland Security's
Assistance to Firefighters grant
for $225,000. The grant is for
$213,750, and the city will pay
a 5 percent match of $11,250.
Tillis was authorized to
advertise for bids for the
purchase of the new pump


truck.

City to interview
manager
candidates
Tillis is set to retire in
August after years as city
manager.
After advertising the
position, the city received
almost 40 applications.
Based on local government
experience, supervisory
experience and other job
specifications, the list has been
narrowed down to the top eight
candidates.
Tillis said the candidates
were very diverse in
experience and were located
throughout the country.
The top five will be
interviewed in person at City
Hall, tentatively set for Friday,


March 23, at 9 a.m.
If any of the candidates do
not work out or cannot make it
to the interview, the last three
(of the top eight) will be
interviewed as needed.
Pending background
checks-to be done this
week-and the later interview,
-.the city commission could
reach a decision on'March 23
or soon after. BackgrQund


checks are necessary because
the manager works closely
with the Department of
Corrections to supervise
inmate labor done for the city.
Tillis estimated a candidate
would be on board by April to
work together'with him, city
,,staff and commissioners for
approximately. four months
before Tillis' retirement.

UCHS looks to build teacher

base with fourth academy s


Implementation of the ACE
(Advancing Careers in
Education) Teacher Cadet
Academy began this school
year at Union County High
School.
The goal of this program is
to promote teacher recruitment
and retention through teacher
education exploratory classes.
It is aimed at increasing the
number of highly qualified
educators in Union County by
nurturing "home-grown"
teachers.
ACE Teacher Cadet
Academy is a win-win
opportunity for students as
well as the community.
Students who qualify are
eligible to not only earn high
school credits while in classes,
but they can a'lsd earn dual-
enrollment or tech-prep credits
from Lake City Community
College.


In addition to these benefits,
students are offered the
opportunity to take classes that
will contribute to their
eligibility to earn the Florida
Bright Futures Gold Seal
scholarship, which will pay 75
percent of their college tuition
after high school.
ACE academy classes give
students the opportunity to
learn first-hand about the
teaching field. As part of their
requirements to complete the
program, students participate
in a field experience in the
elementary or middle school.
While there, they spend time
helping teachers do such things
as grade papers, prepare
bulletin boards, tutor
individual students, work with
small groups of students and
even teach lessons to entire
classes.
Next school year, students


entering the ninth grade can
choose "Teacher Preparation"
as their major area of study
and take a beginning computer
class. Students entering the
10th, 11th or 12t grades will be
eligible to apply to the ACE
Teacher Cadet Academy.
They will be required,
however, to meet certain
criteria to be selected into the
academy. Student
qualifications for selection
include a minimum grade point
average of 2.5, no major
discipline referrals and two
letters of recommendation.
Students and parents who
want more information about
the ACE Teacher Cadet
Academy or who are interested
in applying to the program
should contact Beth Moore at
(386) 496-4192.

Pork producer
provides input
on checkoff
programs
Tommy Crawford, a Lake
Butler pork producer, served
as a delegate at the Pork Act
Delegate assembly March 1-3
in Anaheim, Calif. Crawford
was named a delegate by U.S.
Secretary of Agriculture Mike
Johanns in January.
Crawford was one of 154
delegates who represented
producers from 46 states and
importers who sell pork
products in the United States.
The delegates are charged with
helping to provide direction to
the pork promotion, research
and consumer information
,programs that are funded by
the Pork Checkoff through the
National Pork Board.'
Producers contribute 40'
cents of every $100 of sales to
the Checkoff, and importers
use a sales formula to
contribute a similar amount.
That money helps producers
pay for pork promotions such
as the "Don't -be blah"
consumer campaign,
www.TheOtherWhiteMeat.co
m Web site and research into
"ammina"welfare, food safety,'
environment and other topics.
"Pork Checkoff programs
continue to yield positive
results for pork producers,
creating a more favorable
market for pork and products,"
Crawford said. "U.S. pork
broke export records for the
15th' consecutive year. We're
proud of the role Pork
Checkoff funds have played in
building global demand for
U.S. Pork.
"We're focusing on
extending that record in 2007
and looking at future
opportunities to capture the
world market."
The National Pork Board
approved a 2007 budget for
national programs of $34.7
million. Approximately $18.4
million, or a'little over half, is


designated for positively
impacting customers'
purchases of pork.
"Many of the National Pork
Board's desired outcomes for
2007 reflect a commitment to
increasing demand for pork
products," Crawford said. "The
consumer response to the
'Don't be blah' marketing
campaign has been very
positive and is providing
producers a return on our
investment."
The checkoff also is at work
in ongoing programs that
include efforts to provide
science-based answers and
educational opportunities
including:
* Neighbor-to-Neighbor: an
industry image
enhancement program,
based on the success of
Operation Main Street,
working through pork
producers on the local
level.
Pork Quality Assurance
Plus: provides a workable,
credible and affordable
solution to assure food
safety and animal care in
the pork industry. -
Take Care: guides
producers to use
antibiotics responsibly.
The pork consumer
preference benchmark
study" ,. onnit.. of
consumer taste panels,
trained taste panels and a
risk assessment to lower
the recommended
endpoint cooking
temperature to 145
degrees.
The National Pork Board
has responsibility for research,
promotion and consumer
information projects and for
communicating with pork
producers and the public. It
funds national and state
programs in advertising,
consumer information, retail
and foodservice marketing,
export market promotion,
production improvement,
education and technology, and
swine health, pork quality and
safety.
For information on


checkoff-funded programs,

ACORN receives breast cancer awareness grant


The Avon Foundation Breast
Care Fund has awarded a
$25,000 one-year grant to
ACORN Clinic to increase
awareness of the life-saving
benefits of early detection of
breast cancer to the Women's
Health Partnership Breast
Health Outreach Program. It is
the fifth year the successful
program has received Avon
Foundation funding to support
its work on this important
health issue and in recognition
of' the excellence of the
program.
ACORN Clinic's program
will educate women on proper
breast health education and
self-examination in Bradford,


Union and Alachua counties
and refer them to low-cost or
free mammograms and clinical
breast exams in their own
communities. The program
will focus on reaching women
of all races in unconventional
areas, including ladies church
groups, beauty salons, and
health fairs. The program will
also provide gas
reimbursement coupons to
patients who need assistance
with transportation,
Since January of 2003,
ACORN Clinic has reached
4,554 women with information
about the importance of early
detection of breast cancer,
facilitated more than 1,200


mammography referrals and
performed 1,400 clinical breast
exams. Goals for 2007 are to
reach more than 1,000 women
with educational information,
clinical breast exams and
mammography referrals.
Breast cancer is the most
common form of cancer in
women in the U.S., and the
leading single cause of death
overall in women between the
ages of 40 and 55. Nationwide,
there is a new diagnosis every
three minutes and a death from
breast cancer every fourteen
minutes. While advances have
been made in prevention,
diagnosis, treatment and cure,
early detection still affords the


best opportunity for successful
treatment.
Programs such as ACORN's
Women's Health Partnership
Breast Health Outreach
Program help ensure that all
women have access to early
detection information and
options, even poor and
medically underserved women.
"We are proud that the Avon
Foundation shares our mission
and has chosen to support our
program. With these funds we
will be able to continue our
successful outreach program
and facilitate mammogram
screening for uninsured
women living in rural North
Central Florida," said Susan


Bliss, women's health and
outreach coordinator at
ACORN Clinic.
Since 1993, the Avon
Foundation has awarded more
than 1,000 grants, to
community-based breast health
programs across the United
States, including ACORN
Clinic. These programs are
dedicated to educating
underserved women about
breast cancer and linking them
to early detection screening
services.
Program staff from ACORN
Clinic are available to make a
presentation in rural
communities. To schedule a

Service family since 1991, his
prior experience includes his
first position as a silvicultural
technician on the Osceola
Ranger District, as well as
subsequent positions in
Alabama and on the
Apalachicola National Forest.
In his most recent position

the Forest Service's Savannah
River Site, Green earned a
reputation as dedicated and
capable leader. It is this
reputation that he carries with
him as he returns to the
national forests in Florida.

the new district ranger is
happy to be back home and
eager to' meet the challenges
this new opportunity brings.
"I am looking forward to
working with the various
partners and publics in the
great state of Florida," Green
said. "I am also looking
forward to working on the unit
that I started my Forest Service
career on 15 years ago."
Foley retired with 30 years
in the .U.S. Forest Service,
including three years as the
district ranger on the Osceola
Ranger District.. Foley's
knowledge and experience
have been an invaluable
resource to the Forest Service,


according to a Forest Service
press release.
All the members of the
National Forest in Florida wish
Foley well and look forward to
working with Green in his new
capacity.

phone tax

refund
The Florida Public .Service
Commission encourages
taxpayers to take advantage of
a one-time-only telephone tax
refund.'
This tax season, most
taxpayers will easily qualify
for a standard telephone excise
tax refund, ranging from $30
to $60. The IRS reports more
than 30, percent of early filers
in Florida have ,not requested
the refund, including many
people using tax preparers.
The federal government
stopped collecting the long-
distance excise tax last August
after several federal, court
decisions ruled the tax does,
not .apply to long-distance
service as it is billed'today.
Federal officials authorized., a
6ne-time refund of the federal
excise tax collected on, service
billed during the previtius .41
months, stretching from the
beginning of March 2003 to
the end of July 2006. .The tax
continues to apply to local-
only phone service.
To make the refund easier to
figure, the federal government
established a standad refund
amount, based on,"personal
exemptions, ranging from $30
to $60. If taxpayers have
phone bills and other records,
they can request the actual
amount of excise tax paid.
Taxpayers only have to fill out
one line on -their return, and
they don't need to present
proof to the IRS.
If you paid the tax and
haven't filed your return, here
are some tips to help you
figure the refund correctly:

Community State Bank celebrates 50th anniversary


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
The public is invited to
Community State Bank's 50th
anniversary celebration to be
held on Friday, March 16,
from noon until 6 p.m. at both
the Starke and Lake Butler
banking locations.
Refreshments will be served.
Everyone who attends will
receive a free gift and can also
register to win one of the grand
prize drawings.
Senator Charley
Johns opens bank
The original driving force
behind the opening of
Community State Bank was
former Gov. Charley Eugene
Johns.
, Johns was born in Starke on
Feb. 27, 1905. Entering
politics in 1935, he served as a
member of the Florida House
of Representatives until' 1937,
when he became a member of
the Florida Senate. He served
as the Senate's president in
1953, the same year that Gov.
Daniel McCarty died in office.
At that time, state law
mandated that the Senate
president was to take over as
acting governor should the
governor be unable to continue
to serve. Johns served as the
governor of Florida for 15
months.
During his term as governor,
Johns was credited with
increased efforts in fighting
gambling and a record-
breaking highway program.
Hanging in his son
Jerome's, office is a picture of
President Dwight D.
Eisenhower and Cecil Webb
Webb, who had served as
chairman of the Floridj Game
Commission, was appointed as
chairman of the State Road
Board by Johns.
Webb was also president of
the Dixie Lily Milling
Company, best know n as
producer of grits, flour and
corn meal products.


stated that a new bank in
Bradford County would aid the
community by providing a new
source of money and credit,
"I feel that there are plenty
oif-teposits available to support
two banks," Johns said.
He was referring to the only
other financial institution in
Bradford County at the time,
Florida Bank of Starke.
Led by Johns, a group of
community leaders in Starke
founded a new bank in 1957.
The board was comprised of
community leaders mostly
from Starke: William S. Terry,
Leila Mundy, Dr. Pete G.
Felos, Tom Slade, Steve
Simmons, State Sen. S.D.
Clark of Monticello, Pete
Brinson of Baldwin-Maxville
and Johns, who served as
president.
A building site was chosen
near the intersection of
Madison and Walnut Streets.
The group purchased the land
from Nancy L. Knight and
began requesting bids for
construction. The building was
approved by the FDIC at the
cost of $63,000. Approval to
name the bank Community
State Bank was rejected by the
state because it was found that
the name was already taken.
The board then chose the name
Community State Bank of
Starke which was accepted and
approved.
An, open house ceremony
was held at the bank on
Sunday, March 18, 1957, and
it was estimated that between
1,000 and 1,500 people
attended. Two days later on
March 20, approval was
received from the state
comptroller's office and

Jerome Johns
brings new facility
to Shands, bank
relocates
The day following Easter
1977, Jerome Johns was
clearing land at his lake house,
to add a tennis court. Using a
bulldozer, to knock down a
tree, he worked to reposition
the dozer to avoid the tree
hitting a fence. In a matter of
seconds, the tree began to fall
on top of the dozer and. Jerome
managed to push himself back
in his seat to avoid being


severed in half. However, the
tree completely crushed his left
foot which had to be
amputated.
To make matters worse, he
had an allergic reaction to the
antibiotics and gas gangrene
set it, requiring him to return
for a second amputation, this
time to remove the remainder
of his left leg.
Jerome received hyperbaric
oxygen treatments from
Shands at the University of
Florida to keep the gangrene
from spreading to the rest of
his body.
For years, Shands possessed
a portable hyperbaric oxygen
chamber they had recevied
from NASA, but it remained

sitting on a trailer at the
hospital for years due to a lack
of funding.
Jerome, with the help of
Frank Williams, saw to it that
the hospital received the
legislative funding needed to
have a treatment center built
for the portable chamber. The
treatment center was named
The Jerome Johns Hyperbaric
Facility at Shands.

A palpable election is on the
wires at Clay Electric Co-op.
In years past the installation of
hand-picked trustees has been
pro-forma, but this year, a
challenger appeared.
P. Bruce Harvin is thought
to be the personal choice of the
-ee-op-s O;-Bill -Phillips.
However, Keystone Heights
resident Laura Dean threw her
hat into the ring anyway and
got a bit less then half the
votes at an early ballot.
With 67 votes, Harvin won
the Jan. 23 nomination at a
meeting in Keystone Heights,
but Dean trailed not far behind
with 61.

The festivities feature a live
band, a keynote' speaker,
employee recognition, the
general manager's remarks and'
prize drawings.
In a statement released to the
press, Harvin said, "It would
be my job, as a trustee, to keep
(Clay: Electric's) success
going. I would do that with a
two-fold plan: Earn the respect
of our customers and always
keep in mind that, as a
customer, I want my rates as
low as possible."
Harvin has lived in the


Keystone Heights area for 34
years and will be contending
for the District One seat on
Clay Electric's Board of
Trustees.-

Brooker
woman's
condition
good
after crash
A 30-year-old Brooker
woman remains hospitalized
following a Saturday accident
on S.R. 16 east of C.R. 225.
Carrie A. Fletcher was
transported from the crash
scene to Shands University of
Florida, according to Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper Jason
Barry. Her condition was
upgraded to good as of press
time.
Fletcher, driving a 2000
Chevrolet Impala, was
eastbound on S.R. 16 at 2:30
a.m., Trooper Barry said. She
lost control of the vehicle,
travelled onto the shoulder and
overcorrected. The Chevrolet
then travelled across the
roadway where it collided with
trees, causing it to rotate
before coming to rest in a
ditch, Trooper Barry said.
Damage to the vehicle was
$15,000. Charges are pending
blood-alcohol results, Trooper
Barry said.

Teacher
charged with
having sex
with a teen
A 25-year-old teacher at a
private Christian school in
Bradford County was arrested
for having sex with -a female
student.
Sean Drew of Starke was
charged by Lt. Ron Davis with
carnal intercourse with an
unmarried person under 18. He
remains in custody under a
$100,000 bond following his
arrest Feb. 22.
The investigation into the
charge was initiated, in
February after the teenager told
her family of the nature of her
involvement with Drew, Lt.
Davis said. It is alleged Drew,
a married teacher at Northside
Christian Academy at
Northside Baptist Church, met
with the student more than 20
times at various locations in
the county as well as a public
park in Alachua County. An


additional charge is expected to
be filed in Alachua, Lt. Davis
said.
The teenager was not one of
Drew's students, but had gone
to him for help with math, Lt.
Davis said. The relationship
started in November and
continued until earlier this
year. None of the meetings
occurred at the school.
Drew had worked at the
school for over a : year. He
taught math and general
studies. He was terminated on
Jan. 4 after it was learned that
he repeatedly called the student,
sometimes 20 to 30 times a
day, according to the Rev.
Larry Finley.
"We are not going to have
that. We immediately
terminated him," Finley said.
"The school and church have
been very cooperative with our
investigation," Lt. Davis said.
"We believe there were other
students contacted by Drew but
his arrest was for an isolated
incident with this one student."
Lt. Davis said.
Two charged
with church
burglary
Two arrests were made last
week in the February burglary
of New River Methodist
Church.
During the early morning
hours of Feb. 8, unknown
suspects entered the church
through a window, according
to Deputy Mac Johns. The
window appeared to have been
unlocked. Once inside the
church building, an interior


wooden door was kicked open
that led into the church office.
Taken from the church was a
copy machine, computer
system and several musical
instruments, Deputy Johns
said.
On March 9, one of the
stolen acoustic guitars was
located at a pawn shop in
Bradford. When the individual
was contacted she admitted to
pawning the guitar in Bradford
and two electric guitars in
Alachua County. The female
stated she had pawned the
guitars for a friend and had no
knowledge of them being
stolen.
Through an investigation,
Malachi Skye Fields, 27, and
Timothy Gene Malone, 28,
were charged with burglary and
grand theft, Deputy Johns said.
Neither Malone nor Fields
have a permanent address.
Malone has a criminal history
in Kentucky and may be
wanted on other charges,
Captain Garry Seay said.
All. of the stolen property
has been recovered and returned
to the church, Deputy Johns
said.
Sex
predators
may face
tougher
sentences
During a month of online
conversations with a 12-year-
old girl, the middle-age man
asks personal questions and
grooms her into feeling


comfortable \lJth him
He arranges to meet her in a
mall parking lot for sex. But

when the man drives up, police
pounce the 12-year-old girl
was actually a law enfacement
agent.
It may seem like a crime
worthy of a decade or more in
prison but current Florida law
only allows a predator who
travels to meet a minor for sex
to be charged, if no contact
occurs, with online solicitation
- a third-degree felony
punishable by up to five years
in prison.
"We don't have any greater
punishment for that, and that's
not very much of a comfort,"
said Attorney General Bill
McCollum, who is pushing to
change the law. "But for our
intervention, you are right on
the cusp of doing something
horrendous."
The Legislature is on the
verge of passing a bill that
would make traveling to meet
a minor forsex after initiating
contact on the Internet a
second-degree felony,
punishable by up to 15 years
in prison. By also increasing
penalties for the possession
and distribution of child
pornography, the legislation


would severely punish
offenders at every step-of their
transformation from voyeur to
predator,.
It. wpuld also allow every
online conversation to, be,
treated as a separate crime and
would require sexual predators
to register their e-mail
addresses and instant
messaging names with
-authorities,
The bill-is all but certain to
become law, McCollum said.

Night).
Rodgers is a familiar face at
the fair, where he can be seen
working at the Bradford High
School band boosters' booth.
He is also familiar to
.wrestling, as he is the voice for
CWA Wrestling.
"Now he's decided to cross
the ropes and become a
wrestlerr," Johnson said.
Wrestling proved to be a hit
ps a new event last year, and
Johnson can envision this
year's new attraction also
being popular. A catch-and-
release trout fishing exhibit
,will be set up for children,
offering them the chance to
,atch fish at a cost of $3. Kids
will be allowed to fish for five
minutes or until they catch two
fish.
Some lucky participants will
,win rod-and-reel sets if they
catch tagged fish.
: "I think this is going to be a
really, really neat thing for the
kids," Johnson said.
This year's fair also boasts
an eight-night schedule of
entertainment on the midway
stage. Local performers such
as Terri Carpenter, Creature
and Steel Country will be
'featured, as will the Drifters,
who will be making their first
appearance at the Bradford
County Fair.
The Drifters, who will
perform at 8 p.m. on Friday,
March 23, are renowned for
such songs as "On Broadway,"
'U.nder the Boardwalk" and
'Up on the Roof."
"I've been getting a lot of
phone calls from (people in)
Keystone, Ocala .and
Gainesville wanting to just
come and hear the Drifters,"
Johnson said. "I think that's
going to be a good draw."
That particular show will be
part of golden oldies night,
which will also feature
performances by Arthur Bush
at 6 p.m. and Rocky and-the
Rollers at 7 p.m.
There will also be two
gospel nights on Saturday,
March 17, and Thursday,
March 22.
"Those are always big nights
for us," Johnson said.'
STammy Boone will kick off
the,-Maroh -1-,7 performances at,
6 p..m.,-v followed :by--th'e
Backwood Boys at 7 p.m. and
Creature, from River of Life
Church of God, at 8:30 p.m.
The second gospel night
begins at 6 p.m. with a
performance by the
Redemption Song Quartet and
Crystal Griffis. Calvary's
Voice will perform at 7 p.m.,
followed by Terri Carpenter at
8 p.m. and the Dosses at 8:30
p.m.
For more on this year's
entertainment, please refer to
the ad in this week's Bradford

If all that doesn't sound like
enough to do, don't forget the
fun of the midway, which will
feature new rides this year as
well as an expanded kiddie
rides area.
It all adds up to an event that
Johnson describes as offering
great family fun" with
;something that will appeal to
Sany age group.
"There's something for
everyone," he said.

Communication is key to a

strong, healthy relationship


Committed couples care
about the quality of their
relationship and realize that
communication is important in
improving their relationship.
Parents who have healthy
relationships with their
children also communicate that
to their children.
Communication is the key to
a strong, healthy relationship
and allows partners and
families to feel love and
caring. Effective
communication requires
practice of the skills of
listening and expressing
thoughts and feelings.
r Communication is much more
than talking; it is what you say,
how you say it, why you say it
and even what you don't say._
A key part to
communication is listening.
How exactly is it that you
listen to someone rather than
just hear them speaking? You
encourage them co talk about
what is important to them. It's
easy, to be careless or sloppy
about really listening. You
may .think you know what the
other person means, and you
may pretend to listen while
you do something else.
To break the habit of not
listening carefully, you must
forget about what you are
going to say. Avoid judging
and making comparisons and
simply sit silently. Really
listen to what the other person.
has to say when someone is
,pcklding to you. Improving
commniunicajtii:n by simply
listening can prove to be a
relationship saver.
The other key part to
communication is speaking.
The speaker who uses negative
words, phrases and body
language often sets up
misinterpretations and
discourages good
communication. The speaker
who uses positive (or neutral)
words, phrases and body
language encourages open and
attentive listeners because of
their ease of communication.,
r You may think your partner
P or family member knows your
y needs, feelings and opinions
n) without your saying them
aloud. All too often, that's not
the way itjs. The habit of,
expect >:'nc'I,%,' to read,


your mind can result in hurt,
disappointment and
misunderstandings.
Do you want to avoid this
common communication
mistake? It's simple: State
your thoughts as clearly,
honestly and positively as you
can.
An effective way to talk to
others is through "I" messages.
These describe your feelings
and tell how you are affected
by someone else's behavior.
"I" messages can express
emotions in a way that is not
threatening and focused on the
speaker's feelings.
"I" messages are different
from a "you" message, which
blames and judges the other
person. "You" messages often
trigger defensiveness or
hostility in the partner and tend
to increase conflict. Think
about how you feel when you
hear, "You always..."
"I" messages contain three
main parts: a statement about


the speaker's feelings, a
statement about what the other
person did or said and the
reason for the speaker's
feelings.
Effective communication
isn't easy.. Teaching yourself
and learning new
communication skills takes
patience and practice. Taking
the time to talk is important. A
few minutes spent just talking
about your day can even be a
relief from stress.
You will find many ways to
open the door for
communication if you are
sensitive to others. Taking the
time to listen keeps the lines of
communication open.

company, Gator Freightways
of Jacksonville. Currently, the
building is home to Williams
Jewelry.
Changing with the
times: Three
generations of
hometown
banking
On Jan. 31, 1980, Charley
Johns was elected as the
bank's chairman of the board
where he remained until his
death 10 years later at the age
of 84. Jerome took over as the
bank president. Jerome's son,
Phillip, joined the board of
directors in February 1984.
In January 1984,
Community State Bank added
the automated teller machine


as one of its banking services.
The bank held a contest in
which its customers were
asked to make suggestions for
naming the new debit card.
Vaughn Prescott of Kingsley
Lake was awarded with a $200
savings bond for coming up
with the name Charley card, a
name honoring the bank's
founding father.
In 1987, the Winn-Dixie
grocery store, once located in
the strip mall behind the
Edwards Street bank, relocated
to 470 W. Madison St. As a
convenience to customers, the
bank opened a branch inside
the new grocery store.
Following the original three-
year commitment, there were
two additional five-year
renewals made to the contract.
Then, in 2000, Winn Dixie
made a move to substantially
raise the bank's monthly rent.
"After 13 years, Winn-Dixie
wanted to quadruple our rent,

feasible. Instead, we began
plans to open a branch office
in the Lake Butler area,"
Phillip said.
On Jan. 16, 2001,
Community State Bank opened
its doors at 255 S.E. Sixth St.
in Lake Butler, with Jennie
Reed serving as vice-president.
A month later, Phillips Johns
was appointed as the new bank
president.
Phillip became an employee
of the bank in 1996, after


running his grandfather's
former insurance business, the
Charley E. Johns Agency, for
19 years.
"Keeping a community-
based bank was my
grandfather's dream, my
father's dream and my dream,
as well," Phillip said.
In 2003, renovations were
made, to the north end of the
Starke branch office, adding
three additional offices and a
workroom upstairs..
In October 2006, the Johns

family donated funds needed
by the county to make
renovations to ,the conference
center. Officials elected to
name it the Gov. Charley E.
Johns Conference Center.
Also in 2006, Internet
banking and online bill pay
were added to the many
services provided by the bank.
Community State Bank has
remained successful even with,
the banking giant corporations
of t6day. Phillip credits their
success to the continued


hometown banking they
provide to their customers.,
"You won't find any other
bank that will make a $100 or
$200 loan for' its customers.
Although it costs us money to -
do that, its something that can
really help out our customers,"
Phillip said.
Jerome added yet another
reason for customer loyalty.
"My office door is never
closed. Anybody can walk in
here and talk anytime during
banking hours." he said


WANT TO KNOW SECRET?


What's the secret to suc-
cessfully competing in today's
real estate market? It's simple,
really price your home fairly.
Once you've made that deter-
mination, the real secret is
marketing appealing to the
best and widest segment of the
pool of prospective buyers.
No home sells for more
than the highest offer from the
best buyer. If your price is
right and your home's condi-
tion is appealing, how do you
find that buyer?
To realize the highest sale
price, you need to reach the
largest market of well-quali-
fied prospects. Unfortunately,
sellers who avoid representa-
tion can expose their home
only to a small segment of that
market with one For Sale sign
and limited advertising.
Understand that buyers
who are ready, willing and
able to make a purchase will
themselves choose to work I
through a real estate agent or


brokerage. The value of
homes "For Sale By Owner"
is unproven to these buyers,
so they trust the skill and
guidance of a professional.
Unrepresented sellers often
encounter less-than-desirable
prospects, who may just be
unqualified "tire kickers."
The real estate market is
not always kind, but it
inevitably reflects the reality
of the times. The best
approach to this reality is
proper pricing combined with
effective marketing. There is
a buyer out there who will
respond to those two factors,
if you're ready to make the
commitment.

you solve a real estate puzzle, call

Career center hosts third annual masonry competition


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
The career center recently
hosted a masonry competition
among students from Bradford
and three other vocational
centers from Suwannee-
Hamilton, Pedro Menendez
High School of St. Augustine
and Ridgeview High 'School of
Orange Park.
The .professionally judged
competition consisted of
laying six different patterns of
brick and block work-the
stretcher, header, shiner,
soldier, rowlock and sailor.
In addition to the structural
competition, students- were
required to take a written test
on their acquired knowledge
from the masonry program.
This year's first-place
winning school was the


Bradford-Union team. Team
members Renee Cooper, Isaiah
Wanton, Sam Ennis, Codey
Rogers and Eric Bentori were
presented with the traveling
trophy to be placed at their
school- as well as individual
large trowels, gold-plated
levels and supply bags.
Menendez High School
placed second.
The overall competition was
based on. a 250-point scale
system and the highest scoring
individual in the overall
completion was Bradford
County High School ninth-
grader'Sam Ennis.
Sam, a first-year masonry
student, scored a total. of 229
points, with the second- and
third-place individual high
scorers being Bradford High
School tenth-grader Codey
Rogers and Union .County
High School senior Renee


Cooper. These top scoring
students were awarded with
trophies, work hats and
trowels.
Each school was sponsored
by area concrete companies
who donated matching team
shirts and hats. The suppliers
also donated several hundred
dollars worth of masonry tools
that were awarded to the
contestants, the block, mortar
and sand for the competition,
and a catered lunch from
Dukes Barbeque.

Corporate representatives
who attended the event were
Chip Sykes of Rinker
Materials; Kelly.. Hester of
Tarmac; Charles Bultman, Jim
Skimming and Robbie Hailey
of Cemex; Scott Perdue,
DeWayne Stidham,0 Jack
Elmore and Steve Meggs of


Florida Rock Industries.
This year's iudges, were
Corey Martin ot Carlton
Walker- Masonry in St.-
Augustine, Bill Lauver, the
state representative for
apprenticeship, Steve,. Meggs
of Florida Rock and 'Willie
Dosier.
It isn't just the talent of
laying- 'brick or block that
students are taught in masonry
programs, but. they a9so see
instruction in 'the basics of
linear geometry as they gain
knowledge of building plans,
specs and codes.
,The career center masonry
instructor, Mike Beville, ha's
served as the masonry
apprenticeship instructor for
North East Florida since 2000.
Prior to coming to Bradford
County two. years ago, he
taught at Florida Community


The Bradford-Union masonry team was cornposed of (I-r) representatives Stevd Meggs, Ross Adolph, Scott
Sam Ennis, Eric Benton, Codey Rogers, Isaiah Wanton Perdue, career center masonry instructor Mike Beville
and Renee Cooper, who are- pictured with Florida Rock and DeWayne Stidham.

Buddy Nobles resigns as Union County football coach


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Union County High School
head football coach Buddy
Nobles has resigned to take a
position at Fitzgerald (Ga.)
High School with former
UCHS head coach Robby
Pruitt.
Nobles, who coached the
Tigers for five years, as well as
serving as an assistant coach
for seven years, said it was not
a rash decision. He said he
prayed about the matter for
three or four weeks, finally
making the decision to leave
on March 10.
"I feel like the Lord's led me
up there," Nobles said.
At Fitzgerald, Nobles will
work alongside someone he
knows ,as well as anyone.
Pruitt, Fitzgerald's head coach,
hired Nobles as a coach at


Buddy Nobles (photo

Photography)


University Christian in
Jacksonville in 1989, and the
two worked together until
Pruitt resigned as Union
County head coach after the
1999 season.
"I consider him a brother,".
Nobles said.
Still, it was 'not an easy
decision to make. Nobles and
his wife, Tammy, have lived in
Union County for 14 years.
"This is just a special place,"
Nobles said.
Carlton Faulk, Union
County's superintendent of
schools, said he was surprised
by Nobles' announcement, but
also supportive of the move if
Nobles felt that was what was
best for him and his family.
Faulk said he and the people
of Union County appreciated
Nobles' dedication to students
and how well he worked with
the community.


"He'll truly be missed here."
Faulk said.
There is no set timetable for
hiring a new coach, but Faulk
said he would obviously like to
have someone hired prior to
the start of spring practice.
Nobles said he is not sure
when he will join Pruitt at
Fitzgerald, but added he would
finish.out the remainder of the
school year in Union County.
In five years as head coach,
Nobles compiled a 31-27
record. The Tigers were Class
2B runners-up in 2003, a state
semifinalist in 2004 and a
regional finalist in 2005.
The Tigers experienced
three consecutive winning
seasons before winning just
one game in 2006.
This was Nobles' first stint
as a varsity head coach. He
coached at the middle school
and junior varsity levels for


KHHS senior to join D-ll soccer champs


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Austin Bennett and his
Keystone Heights High School
teammates came close, but
they never did get the chance
to play for a state
championship in boys soccer.
Now, Bennett is set to join a
program that just won it all.
The KHHS senior signed a
letter of intent to play at
Dowling College in Oakdale,
N.Y.
"It's really exciting,"
Bennett -said. "I've always
thought about playing soccer
in college and trying to go pro,
but there was always a doubt
that I wouldn't get to do it
because I come from a small
town.,"
Bennett said he came across
the college when he was doing
a search online for schools that
offered his major of
choice-marine biology-and
soccer. One of the results was
Dowling, which won the
Division II national
championship in 2006.
! "That really interested me,
so I sent them videos of my'
game footage," Bennett said.
That resulted in a trip to the
college to meet with the coach.
That was quite an experience
for Bennett, who -said he has


4


Austin Bennett

never been "anywhere." He
enjoyed the trip, discovering
that even though he will be
leaving tiny Keystone Heights
for the state of New York, he
will still feel like he's at home.
"The school's actually in a
small-town area," Bennett
said. "It's a lot like home."
Bennett won't become the
first Keystone player to play
collegiate soccer, but he is the
first to sign a letter of intent
coming out of high school. ,
"I think it's exciting,"


Keystone head coach Trevor
Waters said. "It's basically
history for the Keystone
Heights boys soccer team."
Bennett was primarily a
defensive player at KHHS,
where he played sweeper. He
said he has been told he may
get the opportunity to play
striker, placing him in the mix
offensively.
Waters has no doubts it's a
role Bennett can fill. The
coach said Bennett would have
been a great offensive player at
KHHS, but his attributes made
him one of Waters' best
options for a defensive
position.
Bennett was one of the
fastest players on the team,
Waters said, which enabled
him to chase down offensive
players on the other team.
Also, Bennett possesses good
heading ability, which
disrupted the offense for many
Keystone opponents.
"He's definitely one of the
best headers Keystone's ever
had," Waters said.
Besides his skills, Waters
cited Bennett's, role as a leader.
Waters gave Bennett the
position of senior captain this
past season .and. Waters said he.
responded.
"'He turned, into, a great


leader on and off the field,"
Waters said.
Bennett, who was one of 40
seniors selected to the Florida
Senior All-Star game, is
currently playing on two club
teams. He is also working with
KHHS assistant coach Roger
Laurent, a former professional
player, in preparing himself'for
college.
Benflett admitted he will be
nervous when he takes to the
field the first time at Dowling,
brut he is ready to prolong his
dreari of playing soccer.
"I'm looking forward to it,"
he said. "It should be fun. I m
just going to make the most of
it and play my heart out."


two years after being hired at
University Christian in 1989
before moving up as offensive
line coach under Pruitt in
1991.
When Pruitt was hired as
UCHS head coach in 1993, he
offered the role of defensive
coordinator to Nobles, even
though Nobles had never
coached on that side of the
ball.
The Tigers won three
straight state championships
during the 1994-96 seasons.


Nobles got out of coaching
whednPruitt left for Fitzgerald,
but his'\bsence lasted just one
year. He was talked into
helping 'qut with the Lake
Butler Middle School team by
his oldest sqn, Kasey, who was
a LBMS player at the time.
On Jan. 8, 2002, Nobles was
hired as UCHS head coach.
The Tigers are now looking.
for their fourth head coach
since Pruitt's. resignation. The
Tigers are i35-43 during that
time.
