Worthington residents will vote on charter revisions in July


New term limits and
voting methods
could be put into
place

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Worthington Springs' town
charter was last touched in the
1960s,- and in a 3-0 vote
Tuesday, the council members
decided to set a date for the


Car bursts

into flames on

S.R. 100

BY LINDSEYKIRKLAND
Times Editor
Krik Jennings of Lulu was
driving a 1984 Grand Marquis
on S.R. 100 West toward Lake
Butler for work on Tuesday
when after having car troubles
it burst into flames shortly,
before 5 p.m.
Jennings said his car .had.
been running hot and started
stalling out..Whe.n he pulled to
the side of the road, he put the
car in park.
Passerby Fred Hall- was
traveling west on S.R. 100,
approximately two miles
outside of Lake Butler, when
he saw Jennings pull over.
As Jennings got out of his
car to lift the hood, Hall said
he saw smoke and flames and
got out to tell Jennings that the
underside of his car was on


charter to be read in two public
hearings.
Only three out of five
council members-John
Rimes, Jeff Rimes and Bob
Benson-were present, along
with Mayor Jimmy Cason, for
the vote.
Council members and
attorney Bill Whitley have
been working on revising the
charter.
Whitley 'said outdated
language was taken out and


unclear passages were
reworded. Article 5 of the state
constitution once allowed for
municipalities to have their
own courts, jails and other
facilities.
Provisions for these facilities
are still in the Worthington
Springs charter even though
they were later abolished from
Article 5.
The major change in the
proposed.charter, however, is
the term length for council


members and the method upon
which they are elected.
Worthington Springs council
members serve two years. The
proposed charter revision will
take those term lengths to four
years.
Another change Whitley
said was to get rid of the
plurality election method.
Currently, candidates qualify
and then are all added to the
ballot. Voters then cast ballots
for their favorites and the top


candidates automatically get a
position on the council.
The revision would make
candidates select a seat, and
the one with the highest
number of votes would get that
seat.
The charter revision will be
read in the next two council
meetings. During the town's
regular election on July 19,
voters will get to vote on
whether or not to accept the
charter's revisions.


toward the back of the car to
wait for the fire department.
Hall said they all
called 911 to report the
incident.

Lake Butler Volunteer Fire
Rescue's Engine 1 quickly
responded to the fire.
With only one man on board
the fire- truck, bystanders
helped maintain the fire and
traffic until more .help could
arrive.
Union County Sheriff's
Office and more volunteer
firefighters soon arrived to
take control of the situation.
The fire was put out in a
matter of minutes. Quick
response by all involved
helped minimize the threat to
wooded areas just off the
roadway.
Hall took Jennings, who was
obviously left without a way to
go, to a nearby family
member's home.


He said he slammed the
hood shut again and ran

At nearly the same time, flames burst out.


Deputy could win $10,000 from America's Most Wanted


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
While celebrating the
University of Florida Gators
basketball back-to-back
national championships and a
football championship in the
same year, it is not hard to hear
fans describe their teams as
all-stars.
, However, Union County
may have a different type of
all-star patrolling our streets.
Union County Sheriff's
Office Deputy Kenneth Smith
has been nominated for the
America's Most Wanted
(AMW) All-Star contest for
rescuing another deputy from a
burning vehicle and his
everyday excellence in law
enforcement.,
Sprint Nextel and AMW
have partnered to honor all


first res,p.o under s-law
enforcement officers, fire
fighters, EMTs and others who
go above and beyond to keep
communities safe every day of
the year.
Everyone can vote online for
the top eight finalists until
midnight Saturday, April 15.
'The contest is already under
way, and six of the eight
finalists have already been
chosen. However, there are
still two weeks left for Smith
to earn a top spot.
America will then vote on
those top eight to see who will
be the overall 2007 AMW All-
Star.
If Smith is voted one of the
top eight weekly winners, he
will win an AMW duffle bag
filled with AMW merchandise.
The overall winner will receive


$10,'000 and an all-star
weekend at the NASCAR
Nextel Cup Series All-Star
Challenge. This includes
tickets f,,r tv. o to a race in
Charlotte, N.C., round-trip
airfare, hotel accommodations


and an AMW varsity jacket.
So if you want to see a'
Union County deputy receive
national recognition, you can
vote each day until April 15 at
www.amw.com/alfstar.
One vote is allowed per day
per e-mail address. Votes can
also be submitted by text
message from a Sprint or
Nextel cell phone by sending
the nominee code (found on
the Web site) to 4AMW.
Standard text message rates do
apply.

What makes
Smith an all-star?.
It began as a simple
domestic disturbance call, but
events quickly turned violent,
when gunshots were fired into
a Worthington Springs


residence at approximately
8:40 p.m. on Jan. 14, 2006.
The responding officer,:
Deputy Eddie Lee, called for
backup as the suspects jumped
into a vehicle and fled the
scene.
Nine-year law enforcement
veteran Smith responded and
attempted to apprehend the
suspects. During the high-
speed chase that followed, the
suspects rammed into Lee's
vehicle, causing it to crash and
catch fire.
Without hesitation, Smith
ran to the burning vehicle and
rescued his fellow deputy,
suffering severe burns on his
face, hands, arms and torso.
When asked about that

FOR SALE: Union County Public Library building


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
At the last Union County
Board of Commissioners
meeting, the Union County
Public Library was put up for
sale with a minimum bid price
set at $250,000 in a 4-1--vote
(Commissioner. RickyJenkins
cast the dissenting vote in
favor of a higher price).
This step was only one in a
long line of plans that will
eventually lead to a new public
library.
Sale specifications can be
nicked up .at the county
commission office. For more
information, call (386) 496-
4241, the library at (386) 496-
3432 or see the legal ads in
this section.
Sealed bids will be accepted
until noon on Monday, April
16. The bids will be ppened at
the county commission
meeting on that date at 7 p.m.

The sale of the current,
library' will fund a large
portion of the proposed
building, which is estimated to
cost $1 million or more for
9,000 to 10,000 square feet.
The current library is 3,300
square feet, so it will almost
triple in size.


Library director Mary
Brown said she has been as
creative as she can be with the
current space, even adding
book ends on top of shelves to
make more space. The library
shelves take up most of the
space, leaving little office
space for its eight employees
(Brown, Priti Bhatt, Dianne
Hannon,,,Mary Weatherholt,
Betty Lou Halle, Bela Bhatt,
Stephanie Floyd and Joan
Harvey).
Brown said the larger library
would give more room l&
house the growing number of
materials, meeting rooms,


office space, computer space
and a children's storytime area.
Presently, computers are
scattered throughout the
library and a few are in the
same room where the
children's storytime. program
takes place. This is not exactly
idea for the computer classes
the library offers to the public
or the more than 1,000 people
who utilize the computers each
month for word processing,
Internet and other related
programs.
When the library first
opened on March 1, 1990, it
had a little more than 3,000


books. Materials-ranging
from videos, audio books to
periodicals to hardbacks-are
now around 35,000 items.
"We've grown to such a
point we're shelved from
ceiling to floor," Brown said.
"We have no choice we need
more space just to
accommodate books."

The long road
ahead
The library's architect, voted
on by the county, has already
met with Brown to get
preliminary information and is


now working on the first
drawings of the new library.
"It'-s going to be tough,"
Brown said of the whole
process, especially fund-
raising.
She said she was at a point
where she knew it was time for
a new library and a $500,000
State Aid to Libraries
Construction Grant was
secured. It is a reimbursement
grant that must be used by a
certain date.
Leaving more than $500,000.

f 'r'. FFA team vies for state title #2


Lake Butler Sr. FFA Chapter members Jenna Driggers, Alyssa Roddenberry,
Chelsea Blalock, Olivia Bennett, Emily Brown, Elliot Willis and Kaleb Clyatt make
up the ag. issues team.


BY ELLIOT WILLIS
Special to the Times
This year the Lake .Butler
Senior FFA chapter hopes to
win its second state
championship in the
Agricultural Issues Career
Development Event.
The purpose of the
Agricultural Issues CDE is to
help students develop an
understanding of agricultural
issues by researching a specific
issue and creating a way to
help the public better
understand both sides of it.
This year the team chose the
subject "Should ethanol
replace gasoline as America's
fuel source?"
The team-consisting of
seniors Kaleb Clyatt, Chelsea


Blalock and Elliot Willis;
freshmen Olivia Bennett,
Emily Brown, Jenna Driggcrs
and Alvssa Roddenberry; and
coached by first-year teacher
Amanda James-created a 10,l
minute skit surrounding this
question.
The goal is not to persuade
anyone to take a stand on the
issue, but rather to inform the
audience about it to allow for
better decisions.
The team has presented their
skit to various groups already,
including the Union County
High School faculty and the
Union County Farm Bureau.
They have several others on
their agenda, including the
Rotary Club of Lake Butler


and UCHS' Future Business
Leaders of America
parliamentary procedure team.
If you have not yet had an
opportunity to investigate
ethanol and its implications, be
sure to listen to the
Agricultural Issues team's
presentation which will air on
WUCR 107.9 FM throughout
the month of April.
The state competition will
be Saturday, April 28, in
Gainesville.

LIBRARY
Continued from p. 1A
to be raised in a short amount
of time, Brown and the library
staff are working diligently to
raise the money.
The sale of the current
building should make another
large portion of the cost, but
the library is also working on
smaller fund-raisers.
"Fund-raising is on-going
and slow going at this point,"
Brown said.
The proposed library will
have a huge mural on its wall.
Supporters of the library can
now buy a leaf, an animal, a
tree trunk or other parts of the
mural for various prices. See
the library staff for details.
Jars are set up at local stores
and the schools to collect
donations through the month
of May. Easter items are also
on sale to support the building
fund. It's a great way to
support the library without
having to go out of town for
that cute, cuddly Easter basket
item.
The library will hold a bingo
night on Saturday, April 21,
from 6-8 p.m. Cards are 50
cents each or three for $1, with
concessions available. All
proceeds go to the building
fund.


A Harry Potter book release
even is set for' midnight July
21, with books now on sale for
$25 with shipping and
handling. A donation of an
extra $2 can be used to support
the fund, as well.
These events and others in
the future will slowly raise the
walls of the new library.
Many of the library staff are
involved in school advisory
boards, the American Red
Cross and community
organizations.
"We're very dedicated,"
Brown said.
"We rriake it out business to
be part of other groups. We
now hope the community as a
whole will support us."
The use of inmate labor will
help to reduce costs, but major
community support is still
needed as construction costs
are: on. the rise. Grants and
other funding sources for
technology, furnishings and
the circulation desk (a major
expense for a library) are still
being looked into.
"Fund-raising is imperative,"
she said. "It's time for the
community to step up."
Brown said with the price
tag being what it is, a basic
shell for thebuilding may have
to be built first. Then, they can
"modify and beautify' as
expansion is allowed by more
funding.


Union County Public Library has been growing, now with eight employees.
Pictured (1-r) are director Mary Brown, Priti Bhatt (assistant director), Dianne
Hannon (children's library assistant), Betty Lou Halle, Stephanie Floyd, Mary
Weatherholt, Bela Bhatt (library technical assistants). Not pictured: Joan Harvey.


Libraries have seen
increasing demands being
made on them from different
directions.
Organization and,
government are continuously
going online for food stamp,
tax, Social Security and other
forms. Those who don't have a
computer come to the library.
"We're happy to serve
them," Brown said, though the
funding is not available. to
expand resources as more
demands are made.
"There has, been no increase
in state aid in a number of
years," she said..

Adding pages
through the years
Since opening in 1990, the
Union County Public Library
has grdwn with the times.
From hat ing only books to
worry about, the library now
offers .11 computers for public


use and materials in different
media.
In 1996, the library became
part of the New River Public
Library Cooperative-to
eventually include Bradford,
Union and Baker. This took
users from only being able to
borrow materials within the
county to a unified, automated
system that allows patrons to
borrow materials from all three
counties-with just one library
card. The cooperative offers a
bookmobile, too.
Recently, computer classes
began to be offered free of
charge: to the public three
times a week, January through
M ay. :
Groups for teens and adults.
Junior .riends. of the LibrarN
and Friends of the Library,
were formed to support the
librarN in fund-raising and
actir cities for the public.
As programs are added to
better serve the public, the
need for a bigger and better
libiarN onlN grows.
Brown said, "The dedicated
library staff and the
community hate pledged to
continued their efforts to raise
the tunds. for the. muchrnegded
library lacilt ." .
History of thle L'limo'i Comnr

A Touch of Heaven aims to heal body and soul


Open house set for
Friday, April 6

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
When a local woman
became .interested in opening
her own business, the name
was something that was very
important to her.
Worthington Springs
resident Cathy
Williams-owner of A Touch
of Heaven Massage Therapy,
Center-said it was her
husband, Jeff (president of
Williams Gas in Worthington
Springs), who came up with
the name for her business.
A Touch of Heaven may
sound. as if Williams is
boasting about her massage
abilities. Instead, it brings into
play her other career-being a
minister.
Williams said the goal of her
business is to not only heal
people's bodies but instill a
"feeling of peacefulness" in
their souls, too.
"My biggest goal is to reach
out to the people in the
community," she said.
A Touch of Heaven opened
up at 620 E. Main St. on
March 1. An open house will
be held tomorrow,. Friday,
April 6, at the business. People
can stop by to register for a
chance at a free massage and
tour the facility.

Editor's Note: Union

provided a large portion of the
information for the second
portion of this article.
Previous Times articles by
former editor James Redmond
were also used as background.
Smith has returned to work,
but Lee is not yet able to do so.


Williams became a certified
massage therapist on Dec. 26,
2006. She is nationally
certified by the National
Certification Board for
Therapeutic Massage and
Bodywork.
When asked how she
decided to get into the field,
she said, "The Lord led me to
it."
Not only did he lead her to a
career, but to Lake Butler as
well.
Living in Okachobee,
Williams was going through a
difficult time in her life in
1994. On a trip to visit a friend
in Lake Butler, she decided it
was where she wanted to live
with her son, Nicholas.
She moved here on June 24,
1994, and began working at
Farmers and Dealers Bank.
There she met her husband.
Williams went on to have
two car accidents in 2005
where massage therapy was
required.
"It, inspired me to want to
give back what given to me,"
she said.
She- now believes massage
can be an important part of
anyone's life.
"It should be a vital part of
health," she said.
Williams attended the
world-renowned Florida
School- of Massage in
Gainesville to learn

Williams said massage
treatments allow people to
relax. At the same time, toxins
are released from the body.
It can be used for a variety
of health issues, such as TMJ,
scar tissue, adema or swelling.
It can even be done on infants
with colic.
If someone has never had a
massage, Williams said they
are sometimes hesitant.
"I completely understand
how they feel," she said. "It's
strictly professional."
Only necessary areas of the
body are uncovered during a
massage, and she said if a
customer feels uncomfortable,
they can leave their
undergarments on.
Customers should arrive 15
minutes before their scheduled
appointment times to fill out a
survey on their health
concerns, and then Williams
will work with them to target
those areas.

Seniors learn how to use fire extinguishers


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
*Union County EMS and fire
department members taught a
free fire extinguisher class at
the Suwannee River Economic
Council last Wednesday.
IParamedic/firefighter Rob
Kpch, paramedic/firefighter
Jennifer Allee, paramedic


Craig Eddison,
EMT/firefighter Mitch
Andrews and trainee Fatimah
Ruise were all on-hand to
demonstrate proper fire
extinguisher techniques to
senior citizens.
Allee, who taught the inside
portion of the program, said
the most important safety tip


I~.,.


Paramedic/firefighter Jennifer Allee teaches seniors
at the Suwannee River Economic Council, including
Ernie Brannen (right), how to properly use a fire
extinguisher.


when a fire started was to get
out safely and call 911 from a
cell phone or neighbor's
house.
"Leave your stuff behind,"
she said. "Don't risk it."
If the fire is manageable,
such as a small kitchen fire or
small area in a home, Allee
said this is when a fire
extinguisher would be helpful.
"It's all about what you feel
comfortable doing," she said.
"Don't try to be a hero."
An easy technique to
remember how to use a fire
extinguisher is PASS:
P break tie and pull
the pin out.
A aim at the base of
the fire.
S squeeze the trigger.
S use a sweeping,
side-to-side motion on
the fire.
Fire extinguishers should
usually be kept in the kitchen
or near other appliances that
are known to cause a,lot of
fires.
Allee said to never use an
extinguisher if the room is
filled with thick, heavy smoke.
At this point, the smoke is
more dangerous than the fire,
and a person should exit the
house or building.
Eddison said it was also
important to keep an eye on an
exit. If a small fire gets out of


control while a person is
attempting to put it out, it is
best to still have a way out.
Another tip for managing
fires is to always have a smoke
detector with working
batteries.
Koch said a good rule of
thumb is to change the
.batteries every six months
whether they need it or not.


When.the time changes, is a
good opportunity to change the
batteries.
EMS personnel recommend
that medications, a list of
prescriptions and allergies, and
medical history be kept near
exits in the home so that in
case of an emergency, they can
easily be grabbed on the way
out. This makes it easier for


EMS in case a person becomes
incapacitated from smoke.
One person in the class, Pat
Sindoni, said she used oxygen
for her breathing problems.
Andrews said it was always
best to let firefighters know if
there were oxygen tanks left
inside the home because it can
be dangerous for the
firefighters.

adding that the Chinese people
fondly remember former
President Richard Nixon-the
one who helped the country
open its doors to the rest of the
world.
Wu said China's economy
has developed very fast since
1978, and the U.S. has played
a role in. that through
investments and enterprises.
"The total U.S. investment
in China now stands at $45
billion," Wu said.

It has been eight long years
since God came and called you
home, and said your place was
ready in Heaven far above, and
that you would have to leave
behind all those you dearly love.
We love and miss you so much,


and you will always live in our
hearts.
Love,

In Loving Memory

Though you are not here with
me, we know you're safely
home, wrapped in God's eternal
arms.
And though we feel alone when
the tears begin to fall, we've
found a treasure there. God
turns tear we shed into a
tender prayer;
That waters roses in our hearts,
planted by your love. Remember
that we'll meet again, thanks to
the Lord above.
...and we give You all the glory'.
Love,

CHINA
Continued from p. 1B

but the second-most celebrated
is Christmas. Wu said
wherever one goes in China
during the Christmas season,
whether it be a shopping mall
or a school, Christmas carols
can be heard, while Christmas
trees and Santa Claus are
familiar sights.
American movies, music
and sports have their influence
as well. Wu said everyone
under the age of 30 in China
knows who Michael Jackson,
Britney Spears and Madonna
are, while one particular
former athlete is quite popular.
"You can go to the
dormitories of colleges and
universities, and you can see
the posters of Michael Jordan,"
Wu said.
American politics are
followed by the Chinese
people, with college students
often siding with one
presidential candidate or
another, Wu said.
One of the differences
between China and the U.S.
can be seen in those college
students. Wu said Chinese
students tend to be more
passive listeners, often
remaining silent and not asking
the. questions their American
counterparts do.


Forestry's new supervisor


Eric Wu,a
visiting
Fulbright
scholar from
Beijing, China,
spoke at a .l
recent Kiwanis -

Students here also take
advantage of the office hours
teachers have, Wu said.
"Students (here) are highly
motivated," he said.
Wu has also been impressed
with the teachers here, saying
one of the Santa Fe instructors
knows much more about
Chinese culture than he does.
He also singled out another
teacher who did not rely on
lecture notes-everything she
taught on was in her mind.
"Teachers here are very,


very professional," Wu said.
"They know their subject very,
very well. They are very
committed to their work."
Wu follows in the footsteps
of Asna Husin, a Fulbright
scholar from Indonesia who
was hosted by Santa Fe
Community College last year.
Like Husin, Wu said he and
his family have been warmly
received.
"The people (here) are very
friendly," he said.


Area child eyes potential


acting, modeling career'


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Nine-year-old Ashley Weeks
may be simply known as a
third-grader at Hampton
Elementary School, but she is
hoping for wider exposure"
after being invited to
participate in the National
Discovery Network's Gulf
Coast 2007 Search in Panama
City May 3-6.
National Discovery Network
,Inc. creates opportunities for
acting and modeling hopefuls
to interact with agents and
scouts.
"I was elated," Susan
Sylvester, Weeks' mother, said
upon hearing that her daughter
had been invited.;
Sylvester' said'her daughter
had expressed an interest in
acting before, such as
remarking that it would be
"cool" upon watching the
movie "Are We There Yet?"
So when Sylvester heard about
a National Discovery Network


open call in Jacksonville, she'
thought of her daughter.
"I figured it would be a good
opportunity for her," Sylvester
said.
Weeks' stepfather, Henry
Sylvester, took her to the open
call. She made an immediate


Ashley Weeks


impression upon one of the
people involved with the
event. Susan Sylvester said
.what the open call people were
looking for were children who
had a "natural" look, and
apparently- Weeks' fit that
mold.
Now Weeks will participate
in the Gulf Coast 2007 Search,
which is composed of runway
and commercial read
rehearsals, commercial reads
and runway and photographic
presentations.
"It kind of covers
everything," Sylvester said.
The last day of the three-
day event is devoted to
callbacks, a time set aside for
children and their parents to
meet with clients interested in
the children's looks, skills or
traits.
The event is not free, and
Sylvester is looking for people
who are interested in
sponsoring Weeks. Anyone
interested in helping may call

The drought index has been
steadily climbing and so have
the number' of days without

been without rain for four
days. The last rain for both.
March 16, was 0.09 in parts of
Bradford and 0.05 in Union.
"It'sbeen a long time since

Wildfire
Awareness

Week is
April 8-14
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced that
April 8-14 is Wildfire
Awareness Week.
The second week of April
has been designated as Wildfire
Awareness Week in recognition
of Florida's devastating 1998
wildfire season, when more
than half a million acres burned
and 337 homes and other
structures were damaged or
destroyed by wildfires
statewide.
"March, April and May are
usually the most active months
of Florida's year-round wildfire
season," Bronson said.
"Coupled with this year's
current drought situation, there
is a very good chance that we
will see an increase in wildfire
activity in the next few
months."
The department's Division of
Forestry will conduct a Fire
Weather Education Campaign
during Wildfire Awareness
Week in order to educate people
about the effect weather can
have on fire behavior. At the
heart of the campaign will be a
contest where people can
become eligible to win a Fire
Danger Weather Kit by
correctly answering questions
posed by meteorologists on
participating television news
programs, online newspapers
and participating radio stations.
The daily questions are
provided by the Division of
Forestry. Fire Weather Danger
Kits contain thermometers,
rain gauges and informational
brochures that can help
families understand how
changes in Florida weather can
increase wildfire danger.
"I hope that all of our
citizens will participate in our
Fire Weather Education
Campaign on their local
television weather program,


online, newspaper or radio
station," Bronson said. "Given
the situation across the state, it
is a critical time for people to
educate themselves about
wildfire dangers."
A total of 1,297 wildfires
have burned 75,174 acres in
* Florida since January 1., 2007.
Most of these fires were caused
by human carelessness.
"Floridians can help prevent
wildfires by taking precautions
this wildfire season," Bronson
said. "Report all suspicious
fires to 911 or your local
Division of Forestry office,
never leave a campfire


,.. ; _- ( .


unattended, dispose of
cigarettes properly, and make
sure all vehicles and equipment
have properly working spark
arresters. Residents can contact
their local Division of Forestry
office or visit www.fl-dof.com
for more information on
wildfire prevention and how to
keep their .families safe this
wildfire season."-
Bronson said he hopes that
the education campaign will
provide a better understanding
about wildfire conditions so
that a recurrence of the 1998
wildfire season can be
prevented.

Takin-g the cross personally


It is a cold, hard fact; the cross is
gone from atop the city water tower
in Starke, and. area residents have
mixed feelings., It is safe to say some
people are pleased, but the number can
probably be counted on the fingers of
one hand, and there are those to
whom it makes little or no difference,
but a majority of area residents regret
its removal.
The word "regret" does not
adequately describe the feelings
of some people with whom I have
talked, and those who have written
letters to the Telegraph. There is
bitterness in their voices and words
of condemnation on their lips for the
protagonist that initiated its removal
that goes beyond a simple dislike.
Most of us have known for a long
time the cross on the water tank was
on borrowed time, and once a local
person was found to sponsor the legal
challenge, the Federal Court would
find cause against the city. U.S. District
Judge John. H. Moore has heard the
case and has ruled the lighted cross on
public property, illuminated at public
expense, violates the Establishment
Clause of the U.S. Constitution and
Article I of the Florida Constitution.
In essence, he is saying the situation
violates the separation of church
and state and has to be corrected by
removal of the cross from public
property.
I miss the cross. When I return to
Starke from out of town, especially
after dark, I always look for the lighted


cross -and find a feeling of "all's well"
at home. It doesn't guarantee that all is
well; after all, it is only a symbol that
invokes a good feeling for some, but
not for all. Why should anyone object
to my security blanket if it doesn't
harm him in any way?
It isn't my place to. condemn the
plaintiff, to wish him ill or harm. I
would like for him to be more tolerant
of other views, while at the same time
seeking understandingfrom neighbors.
While he admits to being an atheist,
his belief isn't contagious and won't
rub off on those who believe.
Perhaps it is time for each of
us to begin a personal program to
support Christianity rather than a
cross on a city-owned water tank. I
applaud Marvin Rosier, former city
councilman and mayor of Lawtey.
For the past several years, he has
a personal program of giving "Ten
Commandments" signs that can be
posted in yards and windows.
Suppose each of us placed a cross
in our respective yards, beyond the
reach of federal courts. That reaction
would make a statement far beyond a
lighted cross on public property.
Starke is a friendly town, made up
of people from many backgrounds,
from myriad places, who have lived
in peace with neighbors since day
one. Let us continue that mode of
living because it is the only way to
go.
By Buster Rahi,
Telegraph Editorialist


Bible-that's one of the main
reasons they reject the.
Christian position. If
Christians read the Bible
instead of mouthing what they
were taught, I doubt there
would be many Christians at
all.
Jesus Christ, according to
the scriptures, stated that he
came "to make war, not peace,"
told his disciples not to go
among the gentiles, that he
came for the lost sheep of
Israel, told his disciples that
some of them would not taste
of death until his return (there
are no 2,000-year-old men
walking around), and referred to
a gentile woman as a "dog" and
refused to help her until she
admitted she was a lesser
person than a Jew. To top it all
off, it's believed that this
wonderful god so full of loving
grace had to have a son by a
married virgin and have him
killed in a horrendous way in
order to express his love for
mankind.
People with an iota of
common sense would question
such a ridiculous story and ask
where you can find any kind of
savior in a bribe (believe and
have eternal life/blackmail
(don't believe and burn in hell)
situation. Sorry, but that kind
of a god has no appeal to
anyone with any degree of
rational thought.
Because the law was upheld
the explanation is that "Satan"
won this minor battle. Right
thinking people do not assert
such absurdities.
Furthermore, since I have
read the Bible, it is 'my
understanding that Jesus told
his disciples that when they
pray they are to go into their
closet to do so. Nowhere in the
'Bible does Jesus say to pray in
schools, courtrooms, etc., nor
to put "in God we trust" on
coins or in any pledges nor
erect crosses anywhere nor
Sinscribe the 10 commandments
in any public place.
Yes, "Your life is like a
vapor that appeareth for a little
time and then-AanigSheth away."
That's why. we should all strive
to get atong with one
anoth1er-this is the only life
we will ever know. If, as one
writer suggests, we will "one
day go out into eternity and
give an account," then why
don't Christians do anything
they can (murder, rape, incest,
etc.) while here pp earth? After
all, all one 'freed do is


"repent"-that is believe Jesus
died for your sins--and you are
free and clear.
It is my understanding, from
the lips of a so-called
Christian, that the monsters
among us who, kill and rape
(and in the case of who we
were talking about-have sex
with them after killing therrl)
can repent and accept Christ
before they die and go to
heaven just like anyone else.
When- I asked where thejustice
was in this kind of belief, I
was told that we simple
mortals cannot understand the
(nind of God. Really?
It seems that Christians
understand his mind enough to
know that they can go through
life without regard to .their
fellow humans so long as they
"repent."
It is all a rather sad state of
affairs in so much as if any of
these Cliristians were born in
Iraq or Iran, they would be
Muslims and disdain Jesus, or
India and believe in any
number of other gods. Each
religion in the world has a
different answer. It's pathetic
that this god(s) that everyone


worships would d not get it right
1 to .begin with-and be a god,
the god, to all his supposed
creation.

A question of
principle, not
profit
Dear Editor:
The cross is gone from atop
the water tower. The problem
was it being visible from U.S.
301 and hundreds of complaints
annually that were ignored.
I was one of hundreds of
plaintiffs, so American
Atheists used my name. This
could have been a more than $1
million lawsuit, paid for from
taxes, but it was just a judge
ruling with no big settlement.
It was a question of principle,
not profit.

Contrary to what was

one. And our laws are not
based on the 10
commandments but mostly on
British common law. Instead of
attacking the law, people want
to attack the judge who upheld
it.
To claim that Christians are
being persecuted because the
law of the land was enforced is
asinine to the nth degree.

Bank of America Visa cards to
buy gift cards valued at
$32,000. The gift cards were
used to purchase high-dollar
items that could be sold
elsewhere, according to Sgt.
William Brown. All of the
credit card numbers used were
from West Coast accounts and

Real estate is experiencing
an unusual adjustment these
days. Unusual, because in the
past, sales declined due to
either high interest rates or eco-
nomic slowdowns. Neither of
those factors exist right now, so
where does the blame lie?
Quite frankly, one of the
biggest reasons that home
prices rose to such artificially
high levels was because of a
frenzied degree of investor
speculation. "Flippers" would
buy and then sell homes just
for a short-term gain. The truly
negative effect that this activity
had was to drive home prices
so high that most median-
income families could not
afford homeownership.
Now, as prices come back
down to realistic levels, more
middle-class buyers are capable
of making the purchase.
Sellers are beginning to realize
that they have enjoyed substan-
tial gains in equity and appreci-


Kitty. To those who put their
lives in danger to save what we
had, thank you. We thank the
police who came and helped
and comforted us in our time of
need. Thank you all for bearing
with us while we were in
shock.
We thank all the children
who know "Ms. Kim" from
school and church. They gave
their love and we want them to
know that Ms. Kim loves
them all. We thank the teachers
and staff at our schools here in
Keystone Heights for being
friends and for sharing their
love, help, support, time and
compassion.
We'-thank our brothers-and-
sisters hin," Christ, family'
friends, friends of friends and
friends of our church family...
some of whom have never met
us... but who had compassion


ation over. the last few years.
A price reduction of five or
even ten percent is unlikely to
erase those gains.
Realistic pricing by sellers
encourages more sales. As
more sales happen, inventories
will again drop. As inventories
drop, home prices will begin
climbing again (at a more rea-
sonable rate this time). Real
estate agents are prepared for
the cycle to continue, and you
should be too. There is no
need to panic when pricing
adjustments are actually lead-

New state
initiative
promotes
healthy eating
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson recently helped unveil
a new health initiative designed
to get Floridians to eat more
fruits and vegetables.
At an event in the Capitol
Plaza, Bronson touted the
nationally sponsored "Fruits
and Veggies-More Matters"
campaign and told those in
attendance that eating Florida
produce is one of the easiest
ways to improve one's health.
"The message is very simple
-most people benefit from
eating a variety of fruits and
vegetables," Bronson said.
"And we're truly blessed in
Florida as we grow more than
280 commercial crops that feed
Floridians, consumers
throughout the country and
citizens around the world."
Bronson's Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, the Florida
Department of Education and
the "Plorida Department of
Health hosted the event, whose
national sponsors include
Produce for Better Health
Foundation and the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention. The program is
housed in the Florida-
Department of Health's Bureau
of Chronic Disease Prevention
and Health Promotion.
The "Fruits .and
Veggies-More Matters"
message is the next generation
of PBH's 15-year-old "5-A-Day
for Better- Health" program,' a
campaigner encouraging
consumers to eat at least five
servings of fruits and
vegetables each day.

However, roughly nine of 10

"Our mission is to change
consumers' behavior over the

Bradford High grads team up to run for good cause


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
At this year's Rock and Roll
.Marathon, which will take
-:place June 3 in San Diego,
_participants Dana (Milner)
Johns, Monica (McGee)
Pombier and Tarah Skinner
have different goals when it
.comes to how they are
.approaching the race.
Johns wants to run a
consistent pace and finish the
race strong. Skinner wants to
just enjoy the run, taking in the
sights without worrying about
.setting a personal record.
Pombier just wants to be-atre--
to finish and still be able to
walk when she, crosses the
finish line.
The three runners do share
one goal, however. They are
all raising money for leukemia
and lymphoma research.
Johns, Pombier and
Skinner-all 2000 Bradford
High School graduates-have
aligned themselves with the
Leukemia and Lymphoma
Society's Team in Training
program, which provides
participants with teammates,
coaches and a training.
program. Their goal is to raise
a collective total of
approximately $12,000 by
May 15.
Each found out about Team
in Training from a different
source, but each has been

* Shocks


affected by someone who had
leukemia or lymphoma, so
joining the Leukemia and
Lymphoma Society program
made sense. It is those people
for whom the trio is running
the marathof-for. --
In Johns' case, it is her
cousin, Adam Hardy, who died
from cancer in 1987-four
days prior to his fourth
birthday.
Johns, who now lives in
Hawaii, was very young
herself at the time. She said
she remembers .some things
vividly, though, about her
cousin, such as playing hide
and-seekin- thehome of Johns'.
aunt and uncle, Esther a-indDaDn'
Hardy.,
"They .have a little closet
under the stairway, and that
was always Adam's favorite
place to hide," Johns said.
She also remembers Adam
experiencing pains as she came
to understand that he was sick.
"Adam's death is the first I
remember experiencing in my
life," Johns said. "We were
very close, so I think it
impacted me more than I ever
spoke about growing up."
Pombier, who lives in
Jacksonville, is running the
marathon in honor of someone
who died in childhood also,
though not a relation. That
does not lessen the impact the
death of Carson Patton had on
Pombier's life.

Three Bradford High School graduates will help raise
money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society while
participating in the Rock and Roll Marathon in San
Diego. Pictured (from left) are Dana (Milner) Johns,
Monica (McGee) Pombier and Tarah Skinner.


"I can't even say enough
about Carson," Pombier said.
"She was just the kind of
person who touched your heart
from the moment you met
her."
Pombier is a registered nurse
at Wolfson Children's
Hospital. She had the
opportunity to be one. of
Carson's nurses and developed
a close bond with her and her
family.
"She was particular with the
people she let get close to her,"
Pombier said of Carson. "She
needed to trust you first before'
opening up. Needless to say, it
was special when I was able to
be one of those people."
Pombier said Carson is one
of the bravest people she has
ever met.
"S.... he' never, wanted to hear
negative talk about her being
sick," Pombier said. "She was
determined to beat it. She was
only 10 years old and had
more courage than most
adults."

Johns and Pombier each
cling to memories of the
people they are running the
marathon in honor of, but

Skinner, who now lives in
Virginia, has no such
memories yet of the person she
is, honoring.
Skinner hedrd about Barbara
Dillard, who is battling non-
Hodgkin lymphoma, through a
prayer-request e-mail sent to
members of her church
(Menchville Baptist Church in
Newport News, Va.).
"I had been praying that God
would place someone in my
life who I could run in honor
of, and when I saw her name

Running in the Rock and
Roll Nlaratihon will not' be a
nev. experience for Skinner.
She competed in the 2005 race
and has completed two
nurathons and two half-
marathons since then.
That first marathon came
about as a way of simply
getting more involved in the
community she was living in at
the time. She joined, the
.Columbia, S.C., Team in
Training chapter to prepare,
raising more than $4,000 for
the Leukemia and Lymiphoma
Society in the process.
"I had always wanted to run
a marathon, but knew I wasn't
disciplined enough to train on
my own," Skinner said of
becoming involved with Team
in Training.
Skinner began running
during her, junior year at
Florida State University as a
way to stay in shape. Running
appealed to her because it 'is
inexpensive compared to other
sports or activities-all that is
needed is a good pair of shoes.
Also, running just makes her
feel good.

"Not only is it good for my
body physically, but mentally
it provides me with an escape
after a tough day in the office
or a ;bad day in general,"
Skinner said. "No matter what
my mood is, I always feel 110
percent better afterward."
Johns, too, touts the mental
benefits of running.
"With my husband's
military career,, it would be
easy to allow my emotions to
take control of my life, but
running helps me keep things
in check and stay balanced,"
she said. "When I'm out for a
two-hour run, there's not much
to do but talk' to myself and
God, so I have learned a lot
this way."
Johns has been running for
approximately two years,
inspired to do so for exercise
purposes by several friends
who were training for a
marathon. She said she became
a '"running addict" after
moving to Hawaii. She had
more time to do it after
graduating from college, plus
running is a popular sport in
Hawaii.
"There 'are many training
groups and races, so one has
more opportunity to become
addicted here," she said,
adding that the year-round
perfect weather is also a plus.
Pombier has only started
running recently. She was
active growing up-she played
softball while going to school
in Bradford County and also
played in college-but
admitted she slacked off on
exercising after graduating
from college.
The motivation to get active
again occurred in December
2006 when Pombier, Johns and

Tornadoes miss out on 2

straight district baseball wins


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


It could have been two wins
over the top two teams in
'District 2-4A with some better
'performances at the plate, but
as it was, the Bradford baseball
team split the two games,
defeating Baker County 7-6 on
,March 26 and losing 1-0 to
'Suwannee in extra innings on
March 27.
f Bradford (4-6 in District 2)
'only got four hits in the loss to
'Suwannee, but the teams
played a scoreless game until
the host Bulldogs scored a run
;in the bottom of the eighth
'inning off of two singles and
. two walks.
S"Disappointed, but not
!disheartened," was how
,Bradford head coach Lamar
'Waters described his feelings
after the game.
That is because the
Tornadoes have shown they
canplay with any team on its
schedule, even in the midst of
6an offensive slump that


occurred in March.
Bradford did, however,
score seven runs against Baker
County, which proved to be
just enough in the road win.
The Tornadoes scored three
runs in the sixth inning to erase
a 6-4 deficit.and earn the 7-6
win.
John Nicula got things
started in .the sixth inning for
Bradford when he singled He
eventually moved to third on a
couple of wild pitches before,
scoring on a single by Cory
Elasik.
An error later allowed Trey
Winkler to score, while Elasik
scored what would be the
winning run on a single by
Jernard Beard.
Zack King turned in what
Waters described as a "great"
defensive play in the seventh
inning,' when he made a diving
stop to prevent a rally from
beginning.
The Tornadoes had to rally
the entire way after' falling
behind 3-0 after two innings.
Beard put the Tornadoes on


the board first when he scored
on an error in the third inning.
Bradford then had three
consecutive hits in the fourth
to push two more runs across.
King had a double, followed
by singles by Nicula and
Winkler. Elasik drove in a run
as well.
That tied the game, but
Baker would score two runs in
the fourth to go up 5-3.
.A sacrifice fly by Cole
Rhoden scored Beard in the
fifth inning to pull Bradford
within 5-4. The Wildcats
would add another run before
the Tornadoes finally overtook
them.
Pitcher William Estes earned
the win.
Bradford (7-8 prior to April
3) would follow the loss to
Suwannee with a 3-0 loss to
Union County (see related
story). It was the 12th game in
which the Tornadoes have
allowed three runs or less.
The Tornadoes played P.K.

"Deacon" James Prince,
who has served the Starke
community for so long, will
celebrate his 100th birthday
this Sunday, April 8.
A party, given by his
daughter Martha Roberson will
be held for Prince at 2 p.m. at
1111 Calvary St. Friends and
family are welcome to attend.
Prince has lived in Starke for
more than 60 years after
moving from Georgia. He
spent his time lending support
to his community, especially of
its younger members.
The Prince household was
often full of children. Besides
raising his own three"-dhildren,
he raised the children of
numerous relatives as well as
those who "just needed
raising," he said during a 1997
Bradford County Telegraph
interview.

In fact, Prince took in many


indigent children, with Maryv
McLeod, Starke's first. black
female city commissioner,
being'one of those.
Helping children attend
church and Sunday school was
also important to Prince. He
would transport children in his
own vehicle.
The city got its first free will
Baptist church through the
efforts of Prince and others.
The Greater Bethlehem Free
Will Baptist Church was
organized in 1947 by Prince
and two other men. The
congregation first met in
people's homes, then in a tent
on the comer of Ash and
Chestnut streets before a
permanent building was
.constructed. Prince served as a
deacon in the church.
Prince helped meet the
spiritual needs of the Africari.
American community and also
helped its members be able to
buy affordable housing during
his early years in Starke. He
went door to door signing
people up for a government-

subsidized housing program.
He devised a plan in which
people could pay the $100
down payment on $14,000-
$16,000 block homes in small
increments-'sqme people
needed as long as three years
to pay off the debt, paying $1-
$2 a week. Payments on the
30-year mortgages were
adjusted based on people's
incomes.

. Prince was an employee of
Hercules, a pine tree resin
distilling company, when he
moved from Georgia. He-
worked for the company 27
years. He also spent 15 years
working in the delivery and
production departments of the
Bradford County Telegraph.
Prince has certainly lived a
long life and, according to the
1997 Telegraph interview, a
happy one. He credited that to '
spiritual faith and reliance on
the Bible for guidance and
inspiration.
"Ask. the. Lord for what you
want, then keep working for
it," Prince .was quoted as
saying in 1'997. "Put all you

Skinner got together in Starke
for the Christmas holiday. The
good friends were looking for
a place to vacation together
f this year, when -Johns brought
s up the idea of participating in
the Rock and Roll Marathon,
y Pombier said. "
"I was a little hesitant
e because I've never been a
d distance runner," Pombier
said. "I wanted to go and cheer
f her and Tarah on while making
it a mini-vacation for myself.
The more I thought about it
and the more I looked into it, I
eventually got on board."
S Pombier's first race was this
year's Gate River Run in
. Jacksonville. She said she
stopped to walk when she
reached the Hart Bridge-she
had nothing left to keep
running,.
However, the memory of
Carson Patton spurred her on.
"There were a group of
people who ran for Carson that
day," Pombier said. "They all
had shirts on with her picture
on the, back. Just about the
time when I didn't think I had.
anything left, two people ran
right in front of me with that
shirt on. I saw that sweet
smile looking right at me.
"Obviously I had no trouble
running from that point to the
finish. I really believe she
helped me through that' day."
Carson Patton may have
helped Pombier through the
race, but the efforts of
Pombier, Johns and Skinner
will help others as they raise
funds, for the Leukemia and
Lymphoma Society. Anyone
who wishes to support either
runner. in her efforts may do so
by visiting their respective
Team in Training Web pages.

was taken on private land on March 26, weighed 23

spurs. Stefan reported that Connor remarked, "This
