Redd heads a region that's willing to serve

of the day-to-day operations of the
corrections system and the people
who work within it.
Job number one is public safety,
and Redd said the institutions in
this area have an excellent long-term
record of keeping the public safe.
"One of the safest places to live
in the world is close to a prison," he
said. "We have staff around who are
trained to identify problems and who
actually live in the community and

to locating a missing person.
Throughout this year's wildfires,
correctional employees were posted
on closed roads, keeping the public

also rode along with Division of
Forestry personnel to report sightings

control.
That focus on public safety is just
one part of what Redd called the best

FSP warden has fulfilling career in country's 'best state'


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


Being forced to look
elsewhere for work turned out
to be a blessing for Randall
Bryant, who wound up not only
working in a career he loves,
but doing so while-living in a
place he loves.
Bryant, the warden at Florida
State Prison, began his career
in corrections as a corrections
officer in Louisiana-the state
he was born and raised in.
A budget crisis affected his
salary, so he was looking for
somewhere else to work so that
he could support his family.
That led him to Florida,
a place that was familiar to
Bryant and his two daughters.
They vacationed here every
year.
Bryant, who has travels
under his belt from his time of
service with the Navy, said he
believes Florida is the best state
in the U.S.
"I can't think of a better place
in the world to live than here,"
he said. "You may want to visit
other places, but I've never had
intentions to live somewhere
else. Florida pretty much has
everything you would want to
look for."
The move was just the icing
on the cake for Bryant. He loves
his work in the Department
of Corrections. It is fulfilling
and more of a lifestyle than a
career, he said.
"I don't know of anything
else I'd rather be doing than
what I'm doing right now,"
Bryant said. :
Bryant was raised in a
little town called Franklinton,
which is just north of Lake
Pontchartrain in Louisiana. He
served in the military, where he
worked with shore patrol and
the military police. That kind
of service to the people of this
country was something Bryant


wanted to continue.
"I didn't really want to
be a street officer, so it was
intriguing to me to be able
to work with inmates on a
level where you mostly had to
manipulate their behavior in
order to be able to get them to
do things you needed them to
do," Bryant said.
His earlyexperiencesworking
in corrections included a bit of a
learning experience, but Bryant
said he enjoys communicating
with people-something he
considers to be a major factor in
being a successful corrections
employee.
It was 1988 .that- Bryant
began his career with Florida's
Department of Corrections.
He was a correctional officer
at Central Florida Reception
Center (formerly Orange
Correctional Institution) in
Orlando.
Several promotions followed
before Bryant went. to the
Region IV office in Pembroke
Pines in 1997 to serve as a
classification administrator.
In 1999, he was promoted to
assistant warden at Tomoka
Correctional Institution in
Daytona Beach.
Bryant was promoted to
warden at Tomoka three
years later. It was a fortunate
opportunity to be able to stay
at the same institution he was
familiar with and to be prepared
for the position by the former
warden.
"He helped me out a lot with
what to do or what not to do,"
Bryant said.
He spent a total of
approximately five years at
Tomoka before being assigned
as warden of Florida State
Prison in March 2006.
Bryant said during his first
couple of days at FSP, what
impressed him the most was
the professionalism of the staff
and the way employees went


about their daily duties.
It takes a special kind of
person to work at FSP, Bryant
said. It is one of just a few
facilities in the state in which
inmate supervision requires an
constant "hands-on" approach.
"Each (inmate), before you
take him out of the cell, you
have to put restraints on him,"
Bryant said. "Then you've got
to be with them the entire time,
supervising them.
"It takes a lot more work
with the individual inmates
than what you would havelin
open-population prisons."


Randall Bryant
has been the
warden at
Florida State
Prison since
March 2006.
He previously
served as
warden at
Tomoka
Correctional
Institution.

A lot of facilities
are composed of
inmates who made
one bad decision
in their lives,
Bryant said. They,
as individuals, are
not defined by that
one moment that got them in
trouble, he said.
The same-cannot be said
of the inmates at FSP, who
typically cannot be housed in
any other institution, he said
That's why Bryant said the one
thing he wants to accomplish,
every day on the job is to
ensure the safety of hisstaff.
Fortunately, he said, :FSP
has adequate security measures
in place-another thing that
impressed Bryant during his
early days on the job. In fact,
FSP isbone of the safest prisons
in the state because of those


COLLEY ROAD RESIDENTS
AND SOUTHSIDE STUDENTS

Please note on TUESDAY, AUGUST 21 at 7:00'
PM, there will be a CITY COMMISSION
MEETING deciding that Colley Road residents
will become single family residents into Multi-
Family dwellings. It is proposed that Colley
Road a main thoroughfare between Highway
100 and State Road 230 will become a main
outlet for a proposed 72; 3 and 4 bedroom multi-
family community. There has been no Colley
Road Study, i.e. traffic impact, also no impact
study on Southside Elemerntary (who is now AT
CAPACITY). Citizens please show some support
to your commissioners that this is totally an :
unreasonable and insane move upon our section
of the City of Starke.

measures, he said.
It's a different atmosphere
at the prison today than it was
in the past. Bryant said he has
been awestruck upon hearing
tales of what the prison used
to be like. He recalled being
told of how the facility at one
time consisted of a mostly open
population.
"They really had to go in and
pretty much do battle every day
just to try to keep inmates under
the control of the officers,"
Bryant said. "They didn't have
the technology (that's available
today). They probably didn't
have 10 radios in the building.
Now, we have sufficient radios
to equip the entire shift as it
comes on."
Looking back on that history
has shown him that some
"awesome" wardens. have
worked there. Bryant said those
wardens persevered through
some tough circumstances-all
to make the facility a safer
environment for its employees
and members of the community
who live nearby.
"It was just incredible what
they had to do with so little and
that they were able to make
a difference in how we're
working today," Bryant said.


He can admire the efforts of
those wardens who came before
him, but Bryant will go back to
that staff that impressed him so
when he first began working at
FSP and which still impresses
him. He said neither he nor any
other warden can be successful
without the efforts of a facility's
staff-a point Bryant said he
tells the FSP employees every
chance he gets.
That was a key bit of advice
Bryant received prior to
becoming a warden for the first
time-always take care of your
staff.
"Staff is the magic key to
anything happening in any
organization, but especially
ours," he said.
Still, the buck stops with
him, as Bryant put it. It is one
of the challenges of being a
warden.
"You have to be responsible
and willing to be responsible
for everything that happens
at the facility," Bryant said.
"The procedures and rules
regulations dictate a lot of the
information you need to know.
It's those things in the gray
areas you really have to be

Union CI warden has more than 40 years experience


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor

Union Correctional
Institution has had a new
warden for almost a year and
a half. However, he is not new
to the area.
Warden Milton Hicks comes
to UCI with more than 40 years
experience that he gained as he
climbed the career ladder in the
Department of Corrections.
"I came up through the ranks
of security," Hicks said of
working at Florida State Prison,
Glades Correctional Institution
and others.
He graduated from Bradford
SHigh School and attended Lake
City Community College.
Starting at age 18, he spent
two years in the Army during
the draft.
Afterward he spent a few
years working with a power
company doing surveying work.
Then, he went to work with
the Department of Corrections
because he was looking for
a job that would keep him in
'Florida.
He went on to graduate from
Florida State University with a

careful with and make the right
decision on."
For the most part, though, the
job requires one to be a people
person. That does not seem
to be a challenge for Bryant.
He likes the interaction with
others.
Bryant wants to continue
that interaction when he retires.
The scenery will be different,
however. He wants to volunteer
with the National Park Service.,
It will offer him the opportunity
to experience "some of the most
beautiful areas anybody would
ever want to see," while also
allowing him to continue that
role of service to the people of
this country.
"It's kind of going to be the
best of both \worlds for me-
being in the environment 'of.
nature that's just awesome. and
beautiful, and also being able
to have that contact with the
people of the United States,"
Bryant said.

justice.
Having worked in security
and three years in classification,
Hicks said his job now is to
oversee operations at UCI.
"Fortunately, I've got a good
staff," he said. "I put confidence
in them."
Hicks said it is also his job to
build up his staff and set a good
leadership example.
"I believe most people want
to do what is right," he said.
Being a good leader, he said,
is knowing when and how to
step back and give staff the
opportunity to do that.
"Most people want to do a
hard day's work," he said.
Updating staff on
departmental changes is on his
duty list, too.
Because UCI and FSP are
close in location, Hicks said
he and his staff work with that
institution on some projects.
"You can't help but work
together on some stuff," he
said. "We just assist when we
can."
This cooperation is something

working one-on-one with
participants since 1968 to help
them go back and complete
their high school diploma.
Once enrolled, students

To keep up his skills, Hicks
said he undergoes a minimum

ranging from emergency

laws, firearms and leadership to

more.

History of local prisons dates back to the early 1900s


July of 1913 marked the
opening of the Florida State
Prison Farm in Raiford, which
was later to become Florida
State Prison, the first of five
prison facilities that now
operate in this area.
Today, state land dedicated
to use by the Department of
Corrections in the Raiford area
amounts to more than 8,000
acres and the facility that was
eventually named Florida
State Prison was located where
Union Correctional Institution
stands today.
When the farm opened its
doors, prisoners were still
being leased from the state to
work for various industries.
According to the Department
of Corrections Web site and
a 2001 article in the Panama
City News Herald by Marlene
Womack, this practice began
in 1877. The state could not
fund more prisons or jails, so
it turned supervision of the
prisoners over to the operators
of various industries in the
state.
The owners got cheap labor-
they paid between $26 per year
per prisoner in the beginning


r-l/4
~r


J.S. Blitch was the
superintendent in the
early days of the Florida
State Prison Farm.

days of the practice to $150 per
year in later days-and all they
had to do was maintain custody
of the prisoner and provide him
with food, clothing, housing
and medical care. It seemed like
a good solution to the public..
Prisoners were punished with
hard work and most people
at that time wanted to know
prisoners were being punished
for their crimes.
Unfortunately, since the
system required that small
groups of prisoners were
being housed in areas all over


Leonard Chapman
became superintendent
at Florida State-Prison
in 1932 and carried out a
variety of prison reforms
during his 25-year tenure.

the state, it was difficult for
the state to provide adequate
oversight. Industry owners
hired foremen who could get
the most work out of the men,
and some turned a blind eye to
how they did it.
In some of these work camps,
prisoners were treated brutally
and even died as the result
of that treatment. Some work
camps also watched the bottom
line closely and provided
inadequate food and little or


no medical care in situations
where injury and illness were
common.
In 1900, Florida had a total
of 778 prisoners who lived in
13 work camps. Seven were
phosphate mines and six
manufactured naval stores like
turpentine. The leasing system
expanded from that point for
more than 10 years as the
practice was continued.
SAlthough the convict leasing
system was not completely
abolished until 1923, some
of the leased prisoners were
returned to state supervision
beginning in 1914 and some
of these were housed at the
state prison farm near Raiford.
The state originally bought an
18,000-acre tract of land for
$5 per acre. When it opened its
doors, it housed prisoners who
were not healthy enough to be
leased.
In 1915, the state established
the State Road Prison Force
and some 100 able-bodied
prisoners were then housed at
the Raiford site, ailn,, with the
menwho were unable to work
and female prisoners, who were
not leased. As its name implies,
the State Road Prison Force
provided prisoners to work
on the roads. This road force
grew, and as it expanded, more
and more prisoners were being
housed at the Raiford facility.
The facility was called a
farm because it operated as
a farm. In fact, the site near
Raiford was chosen, in part,
because the land was suitable
for farming. Prisoners raised
crops, cattle, pigs, chickens,
etc. Prisoners also used the
Bradford County clay (Union
County did not exist until
1921) to make bricks to replace
the first temporary wooden
structures built to house them.
Prisoners also made bricks for
the construction of other state
buildings.
*The food and farm products
were used to feed the prisoners
themselves. The excess was
sold and the funds returned
to state coffers, either to fund
other prison costs or the costs
of other state departments.
An article in the Bradford
County Telegraph on Aug.


One of the improvements made under Chapman's guidance was that the solid
wooden walls around Florida State Prison were replaced with chain link fence.

This photo was taken of the leased prisoner crew at a turpentine operation in the
Nebo area of Union County. By all accounts, this was one of the camps where
prisoners were treated humanely. On top of the building, mugging for the camera,

31, 1928, details a report
from Raiford prison farm
Superintendent J.S. Blitch.
There were 1,299 prisoners in
custody at that time and the
cost to the state to maintain
them averaged less than 24
cents per day "to feed and
keep the prisoners in tobacco."
The, prison farm showed a
profit of $148,901 that year.
Approximately $57,000 was
returned to the state treasury.
The report stated that 483
of those prisoners were sent
to work in the road camps, 21
escaped and 40 died. Five of
those deaths were ordered by
the state in the electric chair.
Six years earlier, in 1922,
prisoners skilled in carpentry
were given the task of building
Florida's first electric chair,
which was to be used to execute
prisoners sentenced to death.
Before this time, prisoners
with death sentences were
executed in the yards of the
various county courthouses.
In Bradford County, these
executions took place behind
the old county jail, which stood
next to the old courthouse on
the corner of U.S. 301 and Call
Street. The old jail has now
been torn down. The gallows
were generally erected in the
area of what is now the parking
lot of Santa Fe Community
College Andrews Center.
The first prisoner executed
in the electric chair was Frank
Johnson, who died on Oct. 7,
1924.
By 1927, the industries
operated at the prison farm
had gone beyond farming.
A shirt factory and an auto
tag plant were in operation,
staffed by'prisoners. Blitch was
commended by the Legislature
for decreasing prison costs even
though the number of prisoners
was increasing. Guards were
paid about $50 per month. In
1928, guards worked 12-hour
days and earned $720 per year:
Today, the starting salary is
approximately $26,000 per
year.
In 1928, the facility called
"The Rock" was constructed by
inmate labor.. It covered three
acres and cost approximately
$300,000 to build. Now


demolished, The Rock had a
reputation for being escape-
proof.
In December of 1932, the
prison population was 3,210
and included both male and
female inmates. Females were
housed separately, but at the
same facility, until 1956 when
the first women's prison was
constructed at Lowell.
In 1932, Blitch died following
an illness and Leonard
Chapman was appointed
superintendent in Raiford. His
25-year career is marked by
prison reform. Solid wooden
fences around the facility were
replaced with chain-link so
prisoners could see the outside
world. Prisoners were provided
educational opportunities and
better health care. Job training
in carpentry, mill work and
plumbing increased the hope
of prisoners getting better jobs
upon their release. Guards were
issued uniforms for the first
time during his tenure and the
horizontally striped uniforms.
previously "orn b\ inmates
were discontinued.
Both the number of prisons
in the state and number
of facilities at Florida State
Prison in Raiford increased
over the years. In 1961, the
Florida State Prison East Unit
was constructed on land just
across New River. At that time,
prison population was 7,536
statewide.
In 1972, the Florida State
Prison East Unit became
Florida State Prison and what
had begun life as the State
Prison Farm became Union
Correctional Institution.
FSP has a capacity of 1,460
inmates- and has 592 staff
members. It houses inmates
with a range of security levels
including maximum, close
custody, medium custody and
minimum custody. The O Unit,
a minimum security work

capacity of 426 inmates and
has 78 staff members.

least until he changed his clothes. Inmates now wear light blue uniforms, with or

Reception and Medical

Inmates go to RMC to be

RMC also provides primary
medical care for inmates from

RMC consists of the West

were being housed in tents.
The courts stepped in and
dictated that inmates could
not be housed under those
conditions and construction of
new facilities increased.
Lawtey Correctional
Institution opened in 1973.
Bradford County had turned
over ownership of the land
and buildings to the state.
The site had been Anderson
Junior High School, the
black middle grades school
in Bradford County prior to
desegregation. The correctional
facility at Lawtey opened as a
community vocational center
for work release inmates. In
1977, the facility became
Lawtey Correctional Institution
and now houses inmates with
custody ranges including
medium, minimum and work
release. Today it has a capacity
of 788 inmates and utilizes 233
staff members.
LWCI is one of three
institutions in the state
designated as a Faith and
Character Based Institution.
These institutions provide a
wide range of activities aimed at
promoting personal growth and
character development among
inmates. These activities are
only successful if the inmates
themselves are dedicated to
their success, so an inmate's
willingness to participate is
a big determining factor as
to whether or not he or she
gains entry into one of these
programs. UCI is one of seven
other institutions in the state
that have a Faith and Character


Based Dorm within the facility.
UCI has one Faith-Based Dorm
with a capacity of 96 inmates.
In October of 1982, the Butler


Transient Unit opened its doors
in a facility across S.R. 16 from
Florida State Prison. It was

REGION
Continued from p. 1A

As director of one of the
four Florida Department of
Corrections regions in the state,
he facilitates the relationship
between Tallahassee and
the institutions in Region II,
which covers Bradford, Union,
Clay, Alachua, Gilchrist, St.
Johns, Flagler Duval, Nassau,
Baker, Columbia, Hamilton,
Suwannee, Lafayette, Dixie,
Madison and Taylor Counties.
In the region, there are 14
major correctional institutions,
six major institution annexes,
eight forestry/work camps,
four work-release centers, two
contract work centers and a
privatized facility.
"Actually, the biggest role I
play is support," Redd said. He
helps make sure the institutions
have what they need to do their
work, whether the requests
are budgetary, maintenance
related or security driven. In
an emergency, his office also
acts as central command for the
prisons in this region.


"I think it's important that I
basically understand them when
they come to me with problems
or are perplexed about certain
things. I understand their point
of view," he said.
His role requires a lot of time
and energy, he said, and it's the
support of those he works with
that makes it possible.
"I'm very fortunate that we
have the professionals that
we do working with us. The
wardens are great. They are
very experienced people who
do a great job and a great
service for the citizens of this
state," said Redd.
He's equally enthusiastic
about his relationship with
TalTahassee; .
"The leadership we have'in
pace is just excellent," he said.
"It's been demonstrated over
and over, and it's an honor that
they would even consider me
for this job."
The leadership includes, of
course, Florida Department
of Corrections Secretary
James McDonough, Assistant
Secretary of Institutions George
Sapp and Deputy Assistant
Secretary of Operations David
Pridgen.
"I've learned a lot from
them," he said.

Jobs that pay
Redd said one of the bonuses
of his position is the people he
works with, including public
officials and members of local
law enforcement.
That, of course, also
includes the 6,859 Department
of Corrections employees
throughout the region.
A large share of those
employees- 1,352-work at


institutions also benefits local
communities and saves taxpayer
dollars. Redd said 1.1 million
hours of inmate labor provided
throughout the region equals
a savings of $16.5 million to
local governments.

Employees who
care
Community service isn't
left up to the inmates alone.
Correctional employees
themselves donate time and
raise money for local causes.
Redd said New River, for
example, recently requested that


Many inmates are part of the Department's GED
program. In FY 2005-06, 1,322 inmates earned their
GEDs.


the institutions in Bradford
County. Another 1,892 work in
Union County.
Redd said the prison system
is the largest employer in the
area with a total payroll of
$166.5 million, proof of the
system's importance to the
local economy as a source of
jobs, and well-paying jobs at
that.
Redd noted the average
salaries fora varietyof positions,
some of which people may not
associate with corrections.
-Beginning correctional
officers average around $28,000
a year.
-Certified correctional
officers start out around
$31,000 a year.
-A health services aide,
which is the entry position
for those in the medical field,
starts out at around $19,000,
but licensed practical nurses
start at $27,500 and.can move
up to around $32,000 a year.
-A registered nurse
working for the Department of
Corrections averages $32,000-
$41,000, depending on years of
experience.
-A correctional services
consultant, experienced
professionals who work in
many different departments,
start out around $62,000.
-Assistant wardens begin
around $74,000, while wardens
start out around $88,000. :, ..-
Coitinuriity corrections
provides another $12.3 million
a year in salaries, and the payroll
for those who have retired from
the system adds up to around
$3 million annually.

Supporting the
economy
"We're the oldest part of
the prison system. It was born
here, and it's been here for
the longest time," Redd said.
Because of that, generation
after generation of families have


made corrections their career.
Even Redd has a daughter who
works for the Department of
Corrections.
"If you live in this area, it's
just a very good place to work,"
he said. "I like to provide the
opportunity for people who do
want to stay in this area to do
so with a job that has the type
of pay and benefits that would
attract them to stay."
There aren't a lot of other


a portion of the money saved
in the employee trust fund be
used to purchase supplies for
children returning to school.
Employees contribute to that
trust fund through things like
canteen sales.
Redd said members of the


industries in the area doing that
to the same extent corrections
is. ,
"The amount of money
that stays in this area is
tremendous," Redd said. The
department's many employees
own property, pay taxes, and
support local schools and
businesses, and while the state
has strict purchasing guidelines
for accountability, there is an
effort made by the institutions
in this area to spend money
with local businesses, including
the purchase of parts, tools and
equipment.

the community by providing


hundreds of Thanksgiving food

go to children in need come
Christmastime. A hundred or
more coats were also purchased
last winter to keep kids warm.
"It surprised me the amount
of children who actually went
to school on cold mornings
without a jacket," said Redd.
And correctional employees,
according to him, aren't just
looking out for the best interests
of their communities. They're
also concerned with those on
the other side of the bars.
"People that work at these
prisons, they care a lot. A lot
of people don't know this, but
the biggest advocacy group for
inmates is actually Department
of Corrections employees,"
Redd said, explaining that
employees are concerned
with prison conditions and
the availability of funding
to support inmate health and
welfare.
"You don't hear that, and it's
not that popular," Redd said,
adding that matters of education
and rehabilitation are more and
more believed to be essential
components of the correctional
system.
"Afterall, the goal is to reduce
the number of inmates and


especially the recidivism rate.
Education and rehabilitative
efforts are very successful :in


doing that, and by doing that
you greatly reduce the amount
of money it costs taxpayers,"
Redd said.
One of those efforts, is
the faith-based program that
Lawtey Correctional Institution
was the first in the nation to
introduce.
"The staff there had done just
a tremendous job of making
it work, and when you walk
around the compound and talk
to the inmates, the impact.it's
having is very evident," Redd
said.
While it's too soon to
determine the success of such
programs, 'he said they are
being studied.

PRIDE:
training
inmates for
re-entry into
work force
BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Prison Rehabilitative
Industries and Diversified
Enterprises, better known as
PRIDE, is an internationally
recognized inmate training
company in the state of
Florida. From cattle and
sugarcane to garments and
optical services, PRIDE offers
341 areas of vocational
training through 37 inmate
work programs located in 20
state correctional institutions.
Founded in 1981, PRIDE
also provides job placement
and for ex-offenders to help
them successfully transition
back into society.
During 2006, PRIDE
employed 3,500 inmates. Of
those, 79 percent earned
training certificates and 39
percent completed an entire
training program. PRIDE
workers across Florida earned
$1,670,606 in wages, at rates
of 20 cents to 55 cents per
hour.
Inmate placement
To be considered in the
PRIDE work program, inmates
must have a clean disciplinary
report for six months prior to
placement in a PRIDE job.
Once an inmate submits an
application, a team of
classification officers with the
Department of Corrections
works. with managers in the
various industries to select
inmates based on disciplinary
records, institutional
adjustment, time left to serve,
industry needs, the inmate's
interests, capability and his or
her educational level.
Each industry has its own
requirements for inmate
selection, though most
positions require at least a
sixth-grade education.
All new workers receive
orientation training explaining
basic safety and work rules
and defining acceptable work
behaviors and job performance
expectations. This orientation
is extremely important because
many inmate workers have
never been employed before
or, if they were, had
unsatisfactory work histories.
Training and
certification
Once an inmate is given a
PRIDE assignment, he or she
begins comprehensive and
structured on-the-job training
with varying course lengths
between 120 and 6,000
training hours. The average
workday for inmate workers is
6.7 hours.
Prerequisite education
ranges between the sixth- and
12' grade levels in math,
language and reading.
After successful completion
of a training module, each
inmate worker is awarded a
training module certificate,
which serves to recognize his
or her accomplishment.
When all modules of
training have been
satisfactorily completed, and
the applicable skills
demonstrated, the inmate
worker is awarded a certificate
of achievement from PRIDE
associations with several
certifying entities. Through the

Sapp can't stay away from corrections after retirement


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Warden Jack Sapp came to
New River Correctional on
June 4, 2007. He spent his first
day going from office to office
and meeting with the facility's
employees.
"Then I called a meeting to
let everyone know from here
on out, team memorabilia
found in offices that is not
Gators will be considered
contraband," Sapp joked.
In corrections for 36 years,
Sapp began his career in
corrections as a tower officer
in 1970 at Florida State Prison,
then known as the East Unit.
He transferred to West
Florida River Junction CI in
1974 and during his four years
there, rose through the ranks to
chief correctional officer.
In 1978, he went to work for
the inspector general, whose
office is responsible for,
among other things, criminal
and internal affairs
investigations, and internal
audits. He remained with the
office of the inspector general
for 13 years and, in 1991,
received his first assistant
warden job at Hamilton
Correctional.


Warden Jack Sapp of New River Correctional
Institution.


In 1995, he was promoted to
warden-called superintendent


at the time- at Indian River
Correctional.


Amount spent daily on health per inmate


During late 1995, he became
the very first warden of a
brand new prison facility,
Okeechobee Correctional
Institution. After establishing
Okeechobee, he transferred to
Marion Correctional in 1998.
In what Sapp referred to as an
experiment,, the adjacent
facilities of Marion- (male
youthful offenders) and Lowell
(female facility) were
combined. Sapp remained for
only two years when the
facilities were divided back up.
However, while warden at
Marion CI, Sapp was
successful in securing 120
acres of property to begin an
inmate rehabilitation program.
Through the Thoroughbred
Retirement Foundation,
inmates began training to care
for retired racehorses, the
fourth program of its kind in
existence in the United States.
After the facilities split back
up, Sapp transferred to the
Reception and Medical Center
in Lake Butler as warden until
he retired in 2002 after 32
years in corrections.
"But I only got to take a year
off before they persuaded me
to come back as warden at
Jackson Correctional in West
Florida," Sapp said.
In 2004, he was again
reassigned to Hamilton
Correctional where he
remained until his transfer to
New River in June of this year.
At New River, Sapp joined
assistant wardens Fred
Trespalacios and Nan Jeffcoat.
Sapp is a native of the area,
born and raised in Raiford. His
family moved to Lake Butler
in 1966 before his career
advancements relocated him
throughout the state of Florida.
Now living again in the Lake
Butler area, Sapp said, "I'm
glad to be back. This is home
to me."
Sapp's office is filled with
numerous awards and
recognition received during
his years of service with the
Florida Department of
Corrections. Sapp has also
been very involved
correctional softball leagues,
As warden, Sapp is
responsible for literally
everything at the prison
facility. This includes hiring
and firing personnel,
overseeing staff members,


departments, programs, food
service, warehouse and outside
squads, implementing
correctional policies, ensuring
the safety of all, and
establishing regulations to deal
effectively with rule
infractions.
Most importantly, e eh new
morning, Sapp conducts
meetings with key staff
employees to review any
issues that may have come up
the previous night. Since Sapp
cannot be at the facility at all
times, duty wardens are-
scheduled for his off hours.
Chief correctional officers and
classification supervisors,
rotate as the duty warden, but
Sapp is still on call 24 hours a
day. Sapp is always on the
property during inmate
visitation hours.
Between Bradford and
Union counties-especially
Union-Sapp recognizes there
are very few long-term career


options for students fresh out
of high school. He feels that
the department of corrections
offers an aggressive recruiting
program for those interested in
a career in corrections.
"In this area, 80 to 85
percent of the students
graduate and leave the
community to seek
employment," Sapp said.
"Kids today with a high school
diplomas or G.E.D. with no
marketable work skills can
begin getting paid as a
correctional officer in
training." In six months, new
recruits can be earning in
excess of $30,000 a year, plus
benefits.

Watson leaves the farm for a 'good organization'


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was not Doug Watson's
goal to become the warden of
one of the prisons in his home
county, yet a young person's
simple desire to earn more
money led to a long-term
career with the Department of
Corrections that is still
ongoing, with the last 16
months being spent as warden
at Lawtey Correctional
Institution.
Watson, who is a 1980
Bradford High School
graduate, first made warden at
Hardee Correctional Institution
in 2004. Watson received a
transfer that brought him
closer to home so he could be
with his wife, who was battling
cancer. Watson worked seven
weeks at Gainesville
Correctional Institution before
assuming the duties of warden
in Lawtey in April 2006.
Watson said working at
Lawtey Correctional
Institution is special for several
reasons.
It's a special feeling to hold
such a position in his home
county; but Watson said the
position is special regardless of
what institution it's at. He
takes a great sense of pride and
ownership in his role as a
warden.
"The sense of responsibility
and the desire to, take
ownership jut automatically
happens," he said. "I don't
know how to describe it. It's
just a process that somehow
automatically takes place. I
haven't stopped taking


Doug Watson, Lawtey Correctional Institution's
warden since April 2006, was born and raised in
Bradford County.


ownership of any facility I've
worked at. Wherever I work,
my responsibility is to serve
the staff of the facility and do
whatever I can to make the
facility improve or be better
than it was. At least that's my
desire."
Watson never could've
envisioned that desire earlier in


his life. In fact, he did not give
much thought to the prisons
that were close to home.
"I guess if your family
worked in corrections you
knew about them, but ve
farmed," said Watson, the son
of Jamies and Joan Watson. "I
lived on the south end of
Bradford County, so


corrections wasn't really
something we knew a lot about
or had a lot of knowledge of."
Watson's brother would go
on to work for the Department
of Corrections, so when
Watson was looking for
something that would earn him
a little more money than
working on the family farm,
he, too, went to work for the
department. However, he was
not looking at making a career
out of if. Watson already had
his AA degree and planned to
major in business and finance.
That would change, Watson
said, adding that his story is
probably not unique. He
realized after putting in two
years with the Department of
Corrections, he was making
more money than he would
starting off somewhere else
without having to move to a
larger city.
"I realized at that point I was
probably going to make a
career out of corrections and
changed my study to
criminology," Watson said.
Watson earned his
bachelor's degree in
criminology and began
promoting through the ranks
within the Department of
Corrections. The only
downside seemed to be that he
wasn't able to earn his degree
at the University of Florida,
where his beloved Gators play.
It was simply too difficult for
him to attend classes at UF
while also working full time,
so he wound up attending
weekend classes at the
University of Central Florida.


Lawtey Correctional a faith-based pioneer


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Can an inmate at Lawtey
Correctional Institution reenter
society and become a better,
more profiective citizen?
You could say Department
of Corrections personnel have
faith that that will happen.
Lawtey Correctional was
dedicated as the country's first
faith-based facility in
December 2003. As such, it
offers religious services of
various denominations as well
as educational and life-skills
classes.
The goals of a faith-based
facility, as listed on the
Department of Corrections
Web site, are: rehabilitation,
reintegration of inmates into
the community, reduction of
recidivism and disciplinary
reports, increasing system-
wide institutional security,
offering a fuller range of
religious accommodations and
enhancing restorative justice
programming.
No state funding is utilized
in providing the services and


classes at Lawtey. The
program is dependent upon
volunteer efforts.
"Our volunteers are unique
because they are not passing
judgment or condemning (the
inmates)," said Doug Watson,
the warden at Lawtey.
"Therefore, our volunteers are
reaching out to our inmate
population and trying to give
them the tools for life."
Religious services, available
through video and satellite
programming, take place every
day. Time is devoted to
Catholic, Jewish, Islamic.,and.
Hebrew Israelite studies,
Tefillin prayer, Spanish bible
studies and creation science to
name a few.
Volunteers of various faiths
teach the various life-skills and
educational classes in the
evenings. Inmates can attend a
class to improve their basic
reading skills or attend another
to improve parenting skills.
"A lot of our volunteers take
everyday circumstances and
teach about the program in
general as well as from a


biblical standpoint," Watson
said. "They'll teach financial
responsibility. We have
ministers come out here. We
have a mentoring program.
"We have a good variety."
Two other state correctional
institutions-Hillsborough and
Wakulla-have joined Lawtey
Correctional as faith-based
institutions.
Inmates are not forcibly
housed in those institutions.
They must volunteer. Approval
is dependent upon such factors
as the amount of time an
'ihmate 'has not received a
disciplinary report and the fact
the inmate must possess
general population housing
status.
Just as being housed in a
faith-based institution is
voluntary, so is participation in
any of the programs offered at
those institutions. Watson said
not all of Lawtey's inmates
participate as he would like
them to, but he feels those who
do benefit.
"It's a door of. opportunityy
we give them," Watson said.

"It's something to help them
look at things from a different
standpoint. It's a chance for
them to look at things they've
done in the past and get a
different perspective from
someone who really has no
other desire but to change a
person's life."
Besides the three faith-based
institutions in Florida, there
are seven in the state that
include some faith-based/self-
improvement dormitories:
Everglades, Gulf, Lancaster,
Polk, Tomoka and Union.


"That worked out real
good," Watson said. "It was a
program, really,, for working
law enforcement people."
It would seem ideal that
Watson eventually ended up as
a warden in Bradford County,
but he said he thoroughly
enjoyed his time in Hardee
County. If his wife could've
relocated to that area, he would
have been content to finish his
career there, he said. The area
he lived in reminded him of
Bradford County.
"It was easy for me to adapt
down there," Watson said.
"The people are a lot like we
are here in Bradford County."
Whether it's Hardee County
or Bradford County, the
position of warden is a
stressful one due to the
tremendous amount of
responsibility, Watson said. It
is a position with many
challenges.
"Probably our biggest
challenge is because we are a
state agency and we are a large
organization, we as an agency
as a whole do not have the
necessary funds to manage our
facilities at the appropriate
level they need," Watson said.'
"That becomes a legislative


budget issue, as it would with
any state agency. What I find
is the older the correctional
facility, the more demands that
are on those facilities."
Lawtey Correctional
Institution was established in
the 1970s, but part of the
facility dates back much
further when it was used as an
educational building.
"We have educational
programs, vocationalprograms
and substance abuse programs
taking place out of that
building today," Watson said.
Interacting with an inmate
population would suggest
another stress of the job.
Watson said every institution
does have inmates who are
difficult to handle, but the
Lawtey institution is far from
what one might see portrayed
in television and movies.
Watson said the facility has a
better inmate population
compared to most other
facilities.
"The fortunate thing about
Lawtey is we have a
population that is near going
home," he said. "A lot of these
inmates will participate in the

Seek paid employment until

A large portion of the
facility's inmates is visible in
the community, which has
been the case for a long time.
Tt has created a familiarity that
makes it easier for the facility
to exist where it does, near a
residential area, Watson said.
"Lawtey has always had a
good relationship within the
local -community -and- within
the county," he said. "It's one
of the old facilities that's built
the rapport with the residents


central office to work in
security operations.
Many more moves came for
her in the next six years. In
2001, she was colonel at
Liberty Correctional Institution
In 2003, she left to become
assistant warden at Mayo


and political leaders of the
county."
Public work squads from
Lawtey Correctional are not
just visible in Bradford
County. The facility has an
interagency agreement with
the city of Baldwin and
another squad is in an
agreement with Clay County.
Watson said the facility is
currently working on another
agreement with Clay County.
The Florida Department of
Transportation also takes
advantage of Lawtey
Correctional work squads.
"We have three DOT
squads," Watson said. "One
works out of the Gainesville
DOT office and two work out
of the St. Augustine office.
"Not only are we taking care


of Bradford County, we


of Bradford County, we
expand beyond the county."
It all adds up to having quite
a positive impact on
communities. In fact, Watson
said any correctional
institution has a positive
impact on the community it is
located in. Rural communities
that contain correctional
facilities have definitely
benefited since the decline of
farming because of the stable
income the Department of
Corrections provides; he said.
That is why Watson has no
problem with outsiders
thinking of prisons first when
Bradford County is mentioned.
"That doesn't bother me at
all," he said. "The corrections-
industry is a good
organization."


Correctional Institution-
juu .- --- ..inuioUro
and Jefferson correctional
institutions finally led her to
the position she holds today at
RMC.
Throughout her career,
Humphries has been making
history within the department.
Her many accomplishments
include being the first female
hired at Mayo, the first female
lieutenant at Madison and the
first female colonel at Liberty.
When asked if being a
women was difficult on the
security side of a traditionally
male-dominated field,
Humphries said, "I never saw
it as a hindrance."
"We do it the same as men,
and I think we do it very well."
"It's all about your
dedication to the job," she said.
"We're all capable."
So far, Humphries has said
that everyone has been very
accepting and helpful at RMC.
"I'm proud to be here at
RMC," she said. "It's a good
place to be."
She has taken residence in
staff housing and is adjusting
to Lake Butler.
"It's a good place to be," she
said. "It's like a home town to
me."
As warden, Humphries must
oversee the day-to-day
operations of the prison she
works at, while keeping in
mind the overall goal of the
department.
"My job is to insure the
safety of staff, the public and
inmates," she said.
The reception center sees a
variety of inmates come
through its doors for testing


and medical care, as well as
long-term housing. -
Humphries has the
responsibility of keeping up
with approximately 2,888
inmates and 1,079 staff; these
numbers often fluctuate as
inmates come and go, and
more positions are available at
RMC than those that are
currently filled.
She even has to provide
officers for security at
Jacksonville Memorial,
because the hospital provides a
whole floor for inmates.
The work camp at RMC is
an additional responsibility. It
opened Nov. 1, 2006, the same
month she arrived.
A good working relationship
with the community is
something Humphries said she
plans to keep going.
Inmate work crews are often
provided to the county, the city
municipalities and the school
board to provide labor. This
lowers cost of projects so
Union, as an economically
constrained county, can afford
to do more for the community.
"They do a lot of good
things for the county,"


Humpiries said.
Physical Fitness
Challenge
Another goal for the warden
is to get all her employees in
*good physical shape.
The department is in its
initial phase of the Physical
Fitness Program, a program
implemented by the
department Secretary Jim
McDonough in an effort to
improved the overall health of
the Department of Corrections
by 2009.
Humphries said RMC put its
officers to the test to see their
progress. In April, -
institution held its own
Physical Fitness Challenge.
Employees of varying
fitness levels gathered at the
institution's training building
to see how they measured up.
After the fitness portion of
the challenge, RMC served the
participants a healthy meal of
chicken, veggies and salad.
The first phase of the
program is voluntary for
employees. Fitness guidelines
are based on age and differ for
male and female employees.

timed 1.5-mile run/walk.
Humphries said she has
started working on her fitness
goals as part of the challenge.
Loyalty to the
department
Humphries' career has given
her time to gain "ultimate
-espect" for the Department of
Corrections.
"I'm very loyal to the
department because it's been
good to me," she said.
Even while the department
has seen some negative
publicity, Humphries said
doing her job the right way is
something she keeps in the
front of her mind.
"As a public servant, you're
in the spotlight," she said. "We
try to be professional every
day."
On the wall in her office
hangs a sign that reads:
fairness, integrity, loyalty,
discipline and duty.
"I put that up there for a
reason," she said: "It's a daily
reminder of what we're about."

Editorial:
Correctional
institutions in
the
community
There was a time when
communities felt stigmatized
by having a prison, mental
institution or reform school in
their vicinity, including
Raiford, Chattahoochee and
Marianna, towns known for
local state facilities in or near
their borders. Fortunately,
enlightened citizens
understand the need for
institutions that care for
incorrigibles, the mentally
disturbed and wayward youth,
and they accept their presence
in their midst.
That is as it should be
because every community
contributes individuals to the
various facilities, and each
community must share in the
responsibility for providing
institutional care.
Bradford and Union counties


Editorial:
Corrections
personnel
transcend
stereotypes
In the beginning, men and
women gathered around the
campfire to hear storytellers
spin their yarns about hunting
exploits or other adventures.
Then came the written word,
but mass production of written
material was celiries away in
the future. The advent of the
printing press and the ability to
read ushered in writers of fact
and fiction, and at times a
mixture of the two.
Unfortunately, the history of
prisons parallels the history of
reading and writing, harking
back to biblical times when
Christian workers were
incarcerated for proclaiming
the gospel. While conditions in
the biblical prisons weren't
detailed, being denied personal
freedom was reprehensible in
those days and remains a sad
factor in anyone's life today.
But where there are prisons,
there are people to operate the
facility, to provide food,-
shelter and clothing for the
incarcerated and maintain the
physical plant. Inmates were
probably pressed into service


have long been known for their
penal institutions, primarily
because of Union Correctional
Institution, formerly known as
Florida State Prison, the
flagship of the Florida prison
system. In fact, it was
Florida's only prison, housing
both male and female inmates
prior to the opening of Lowell
Correctional Institution (for
women) in 1955.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture (which included
the prison system) began
buying cut-over timber land in
Bradford County in 1910,
paying $5 per acre for the
approximately 20,000 acres
comprising the several
institutions clustered on both
sides of New River on S.R. 16,
between Raiford and Starke.
Bradford County was divided
into two counties in 1921, with
about two-thirds of the prison-
owned land in Bradford
County and about one-third in
Union County.
The first inmates arrived at
the prison labor camp (on the
site of Union Correctional
Institution) in 1918. Prior to
that time, Florida's few


for day-to-day activities,
cooking, cleaning and
maintenance, but a cadre of
employees was charged with
maintaining order and security.
Writers of fiction have
treated prison employees
poorly, depicting them as
being ignorant, arrogant,
uneducated and downright
mean. Books have been
written, and many made .into
movies, painting prison
personnel as bullies and
dullards, often outwitted by
inmates. It may make for good
reading, but it's a
misconception that harms the
industry and the people who
serve in it.
Law enforcement personnel
suffer from the same fiction,
and perhaps for the same
reason. Working in either of
the two fields is stressful and
dangerous, often unappreciated
by the public, and in prior
times, underpaid. Today's
salaries are much improved,
and workers in both fields are
moving up the social ladder as
the public becomes better
informed.- With correctional'
facilities in,virtually every
county in the state,
correctional personnel -are
neighbors and friends,
attending school, church and
social functions with business
workers and leaders, and all
other members of society.


inmates were housed in a
former Civil War military base
at Chattahoochee.
The modern correctional
system began in Florida in
1958, when the Legislature
moved the prison system from
the auspices of the Department
of Agriculture and established
the Department of Corrections.
The era of corporal
punishment gave way to
education and training inmates,
and brought improved pay
schedules for employees that
attracted better educated
people to carry out the new
programs.
Coincidental with new
systems in corrections in the
early 1960s, the U.S. military
began mustering out World
War II veterans with 20 years'
or more service that liked the
semi-military discipline of a
prison setting. They went to
work at Florida State Prison
(the present UCI), bringing
expertise and military skill that
upgraded overall employee
performance.
That influx of highly skilled
personnel eased the burden of
opening two new facilities,
Florida State Prison and the


In Florida, a leader in prison
reform, the era of enlightened
prison operations began with
the Legislature removing
prisons from the Department
of Agriculture and establishing
the Department of Corrections
in 1958. The move came at a
good time because the
turbulent 1960s saw an influx
of inmates from the streets of
large cities that overtaxed
prison facilities. Few people
outside the system understand,
or maybe even care, that as
many as 18 men were assigned
to a single cell. Inmate living
conditions were deplorable and
the stress under which inmates
lived was passed on to prison
personnel.
The first two appointees as
secretary of corrections, R.O.
Culver and H.G. Cochran,
served short terms before
moving on to other interests
unrelated to corrections or
their handling of the position,
to be replaced by Louie L.
Wainwright, superintendent of
Avon Park Correctional
Institution. A native of
Lawtey, his expertise guided
the Florida prison system
Through the turbulent 1960s
and the attendant growth of
facilities for the next 25 years
(1962-87), making him the
dean of prison administrators
throughout the nation.

Reception and Medical Center,
both of which were opened
between 1960 and 1965.
Staffing new correctional
facilities would have been
much more difficult without
retiring military personnel.
But what is corrections
doing for the counties in which
they are located? Obviously,
employment in the counties
has escalated with the hiring of
local people. The jobs have
also attracted new residents
with accompanying families
who have enriched our
communities..
Bradford and Union counties
are much more cosmopolitan
today than they were in years
past when Florida State Prison
had 67 employees with the
same surname. Don't assume
that the local family didn't
make good employees, for
they were excellent for the old
way of running prisons, but
educational programs and
modern equipment required
younger and better educated
employees. The retirement of
the old hands opened slots for
new personnel.
Before outlining the many
advantages of having
correctional facilities in a
community, it must be
admitted there is a down side.
The chamber of commerce has
found in recent years that some


business firms do not want to
locate in Bradford or Union
because of the unfavorable
view by people who do not
appreciate the many good
qualities of having an industry
that is nonpolluting,
nondiscriminating, depression-
proof, and that offers excellent
advancement opportunities,
retirement and health benefits.
Many people are ignorant
that prison employees have
above-average educations
gained while on the job.
Beginning about the time the
prison system began
expanding, community
colleges were also expanding,
bringing classrooms, to the
prisons, and teaching inmates
and employees college-level
courses. Correctional

institutions have' become a
reservoir of educated people in
the communities in which they
live.
Outside their correctional
duties, prison employees are
contributing to the community
by serving on county and city
commissions, and working as
volunteers on committees and
boards, bringing expertise to
all areas of the counties in
which they live. The financial
impact on Bradford and Union
counties has been tremendous,
but the single most important
factor improving the local.
community is the influx of


prison employees.
Prison employees must pass
stringent requirements to be
considered for employment. A
basic GED certificate will
serve to get a job interview,
depending on the level of
employment being sought.
Seeking a position higher than
that of an entry-level
correctional officer requires
increased certification and/or
experience, and those seeking
professional positions (doctors,
dentists, etc.), must have
educational degrees and
experience normally required
within those professions.
In no way is the prison
system staffed by castoffs,
misfits or second-rate
personnel. Beginning
correctional officers must
complete a 600-hour course
before being assigned to a post
controlling inmates, and
competitive entry-level pay
scales, health insurance and
retirement benefits guarantee
quality applicants. Housing on
prison property is available at
some institutions and
represents an additional
incentive for employment.
The salaries they earn
enhance businesses, schools,
churches and other entities as
those dollars make their way
through the community.

Today Florida's prison
system is among the finest in
the nation, accredited in all
areas of administration,
security, infrastructure, health
and care of inmates, education
and training of staff and
inmates, and records keeping.
Among all state agencies, the
Department of Corrections has
always maintained outstanding
financial records, maintaining
budgetary controls and earning
excellent audit reports. The top
administrators in the
institutions have risen through
the ranks, earning the respect
and admiration of rank and file
personnel with their
experience and knowledge of
operating correctional
facilities.
Overall, the selection of
wardens (formerly called
superintendents) has been
excellent, and many have
earned the respect of inmates
and employees during his
tenure. Floridians have every
right to be proud of the system,
the tangible and intangible
qualities that make up the
whole, including an inmate
population that is well-
behaved, reflecting the quality
of life inside the compound.

Britt takes honors at


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Imagine, if you will, a
woman who possesses the
attributes of Pamela Sue
Anderson, Angelina Jolie and
Jennifer Lopez.
Sound attractive, guys?
Well, maybe not so much if
the woman in question is
Fronia Mae Flirt, the winner of
this year's Kiwanis Club of
Starke Mz. Ugly pageant,
which was sponsored by Bill
Adams Chevrolet of Starke.
Braxton Britt donned a
dress, applied makeup and
showed off his moves while
performing the "Electric Slide"
to win the annual fund-raiser,
which was held Aug. 11 at the
Bradford County Fairgrounds.
Britt, or Fronia Mae, if you
prefer, was one of three
finalists along with Madame
Crotch (Timmy Faulkner) and
Bell E. Flop (Bo Clark). Fronia
Mae probably sealed the deal
with the judges after her
response to the question of
how she would describe
herself over the phone to a
blind date. She said the top of
her body is like Angelina Jolie,
the middle like Pamela Sue
Anderson and the bottom like
Jennifer Lopez.
"That's uncanny," emcee
Terry Vaughan said. "That's
just what I was thinking."
Vaughan then added, "Let's
hope it's a true blind date."
Eight men put aside their
dignity to compete in the
event, which wound up raising
$4,055 for the Kiwanis Club.
The money will help the club
continue its support of youth in
Bradford County.
The contestants, when
introduced individually, showed
off their best attire in keeping
with the event's fiesta theme.
Audience members probably
wished they were taking a
siesta, instead, as they were
subjected to some truly
interesting sights.
Vaughan's quips stuck to the
Mexican theme, as well. When
introducing Betty
Badonkadonk (Randy Curtis),
he said, "Betty is wearing a
skimpy little mini-skirt tonight,
which makes us all wish she
had decided to put a little more


tortilla around her enchilada."
Vaughan had this to say
about Fronia Mae Flirt:
"Tonight, Fronia is sporting all
the colors of the Mexican flag.
By the way, Fronia, Laredo's
wants its tablecloth back."
Britt, by being tabbed the
winner by judges Don Fineout,
Charlene Gathright and Jim
Godwin, received a fishing trip
for two with Jerry Williams
and Oasis Charters.
Faulkner, the first runner-up,
received four tickets to the
Florida-Western Kentucky
football game. Clark, the
second runner-up, received
two tickets to the Florida-Troy
football game.
Also, Mo Smith, as Cantina
Queen, was named "Mz.
Congeniality," while Curtis
and Bear Bryan (Daisy Mae
Bare All) were honored for
best talent and best fiesta wear,
respectively. Smith received
four tickets to Gator Growl,
while Curtis and Bryan
received two tickets each to
the Florida-Troy football
game.
Malcolm Hill (Manur6
Foggybottom) and Michael
McRae (Ima Ho) also
competed.

Melrose's
Jordan to
perform at
Ravine
Gardens
Melrose native Tresa Jordan
will be performing at Ravine
Gardens State Park on Friday,
Aug. 24, at 7:30 p.m. as a
prelude to the Aug. 25-26
Palatka Criterium and Road
Race.
Jordan, the daughter of
Roger and Nancy Buz of
Melrose, will perform on the
park's Campbell Stage. The
park is located at 1600 Twigg
St. in Palatka.
Tickets are $25 and may be
obtained at Century 21
Lakeside Realty in Melrose,
North Florida Music and
Sound in Starke and Sabo's
Italian American Restaurant in
Keystone Heights.
She is also scheduled to be
available for autographs and
pictures on Saturday, Aug.
25...
Jordan, who is now living in
Nashville, released her debut,
self-titled CD in August 2006.
No electric instruments can be
found on the 11-song disc.
"The ,sound of acoustic
instruments is so beautiful and
clear," Jordan said "You can

muddy up songs with a lot of
electrics and a big production.
My songs lend themselves to
an acoustic arrangement.
They're organic, raw and
natural. The instruments match
the lyrics."
Those lyrics are about real-
life experiences, Jordan said.
"I know some writers can
just come up with an idea and
write it out of thin air," she
said. "I can't do that. It has to
be something that I've been
Through or an emotion that I've
dealt with. There has to be-
some kind of truthfulness to a
song or it won't resonate with
people."
Jordan's life experiences
began in Melrose. Nancy Buz
said her daughter always
wanted to be a singer. She
showed signs of that ambition


I


il
I s



v" '.f






Tresa Jordan
at an early age. Buz recalled


buying her daughter the
"Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"
tape and playing it for her.
Jordan was young enough that
she could only speak a few
words, yet she was able to
eventually sing the album by
heart.
Jordan's father, Roger Buz,
was a musical inspiration as
well.
"When I was little, I
remember him going out to
play with his band on Friday
and Saturday nights," Jordan
said. "When I was about 9 or
10, I actually got to sing along
with my dad."
Jordan attended the Florida
School of the Performing Arts
in Palatka. She graduated in
the area of musical theater,
then went to a teaching college


in Minnesota.
At the age of 19, Jordan
moved to Nashville with her
best friend. They waited tables
while attempting to break into
the music business.
Jordan met another
struggling musician and fell in
love. The couple married and
had three children. Jordan put
her music career on hold.
She and her husband would
eventually divorce. Jordan
began writing songs as a way
of dealing with her emotions at
the time. It was a self-
described time of self-
discovery as she put her life
back together with newfound
confidence. Her songs got
better and so did her life. She
fell in love again and married a
man who full supported her
musical career.

'Homestead Declaration' has nothing to do with Homestead Exemption'
Do not confuse the two meanings THEY ARE NOT THE SAME! Most homeowners believe that filling for the
tax break under 'Homestead Exemption' fully protects their home from judgments, liens and creditors. It does
not! But, when you declare your property as your 'Homestead', it gives you enormous protection and every
homeowner should do this regardless the value of their property. You can download a Homestead Declaration
form for married couples or a single person from the below website, and it might just save your home from eco-

the Declaration of Homestead. but it is better that vou have it and not need it than to need it and not have it

Rough-and-tumble school in Starke trains wrestlersI


- BY ARNIE HARRIS
LRM Staff Writer
Grunts, groans, cries of pain
and the deafening crash of
bodies hitting the mat of the
wrestling ring-this is what
you will hear at "The Pain
Station" in Starke every
Wednesday evening.
It is a school for aspiring
professional wrestlers run by
Steve Wicks, aka "Tall Bear"
(his Native-American name-
he' is one quarter Cherokee),
aka "Eclipse" (his wrestling
name).
Wicks, who stands 6' 11" in
the ring, is the president and
founder of the Coastal
Wrestling Association, which
puts on exhibitions in
Jacksonville, Lake Butler,
Middleburg and its home base
of Starke the third Saturday of
each month from 7-9 p.m. He
is also the current CWA
heavyweight champion, while,
an ominously named Krule
holds the light heavyweight
crown.
In addition, CWA
exhibitions have been held at
the Bradford County Fair and
Starke's Bike Fest.
The organization also holds
several charity events during
the year, most recently on July
21 at the Bradford Fairgrounds
as part of the Lisa Wicks
Memorial Poker Run. In h9nor
of Wicks' late wife whose
passion was animals, and their
neutering and spaying, the
proceeds went to the River
City Community Animal
Hospital.
To add to the CWA's

give advice on

Africanized

honey bee

encounters
SThe Bradford County
Extension Service is offering a
course entitled "First
Responder Training for
Africanized Honey Bees" on
Monday, Aug. 20, from 6 p.m.
to 9, p.m..at its office at 2266
.1. TefipTe Ave- in Starke.
I White- there -have not been -
any documented cases of
Africanized honey bees in
Bradford County, there have
been hives identified in
neighboring counties. This
course will help individuals
who work outdoors formulate
a plan of action if such bees
are encountered.
The time to plan is before
there is a problem.
Registration for this course
is free, but you must RSVP.
Call the Bradford County
Extension Office at (904) 966-
6224 to register and to ensure
there will be enough teaching
materials on hand.


current stable of 18 wrestlers,
Wicks began the Pain Station
school six month ago at the
Bradford Fairgrounds. There,
on any given Wednesday from
6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., he may be
training six or more aspiring
professional wrestlers.
The students are usually at
varying levels of wrestling
proficiency, ranging from
beginners to those who have
advanced skills. Their current
ages run from 17 to 46.
"The only necessity a
student must have is heart and
desire," Wicks said. "These
cannot be taught. Skills can be.
"A lot of my students come
here thinking they've learned
the skills by watching
wrestling on TV. Then they
find out quickly they haven't.
The typical student needs
anywhere from six months of
training to a year and a half.
"I am the one who
determines when the student
has reached the level where he
can wrestle professionally--I
give him his certificate,"
Wicks said.
Wicks said the very first
thing the wrestling student is

Next. the students learn
w ear-doxwn moves, which
means getting opponents in
head. arm or leg locks-and
also hoNw to extricate oneself
from them.
As students progress, one of
the last and more difficult
maneuvers they can opt to
master is the crowd-pleasing
flying drop kick, which, as the
name implies, involves the
wrestler, from a running start,
taking to the air with his body
extended feet first and making
contact with his opponent's
upper body.
As much of the appeal of
professional wrestling is its
theatricality of heroes vs.
villains, some of the students
wear foreboding costumes and
identify themselves by their
more intimidating names.
A recent school session
featured "The Intruder," a
silent, enigmatic presence
wearing a threateningly
designed ski mask and Chris
"The Tank" Taylor.
Student Nick Hunter, 25, of
Ocala, generally
acknowledged by all to be the
most advanced student in the

"bump." This involves-after
-- diruninig start -and bouncing'
off the ropes to pick up
momentum-the student
leaving the ground in mid-ring
and crashing on his back onto
the mat. To avoid being hurt,
the trick is to land square on
the surface, letting the full
back take the impact, while
keeping the arms and .head out
of the way.
"Injuries occur when the
arms come into play," Wicks
said. "This can easily cause a
broken or, at least, badly
strained arm."
Wicks takes pride in the fact
that no one has been seriously
injured since the school began
in January.

As a seller, you'd prefer a
nice clean, unconditional offer
at full price, right? One way
to encourage such confidence
among potential buyers is to
have an inspection report avail-
able during showings, as well
as any receipts (or estimates)
for repairs. Why order an
inspection when the buyers
will probably do so anyway?
Because when you take the ini-
tiative and perform repairs
before listing, you are basically
presenting a clean bill of health
for your home.
Prelisting inspections are
becoming a popular way to
give sellers an edge in compet-
itive markets. Taking such
action also provides a great
opportunity to take care of
problems that otherwise might
come back to bite you. Buyers
today are armed with more

up.
One such move, Hunter said,
is the figure-four leglock,
popularized many decades ago
by a wrestler named Buddy
Rogers.
Another is called the


knowledge than in the past,
and they recognize the security
offered when the seller is
forthright and demonstrating
that there is nothing to hide.
These are the conditions
that are more likely to produce
that unconditional offer.
While it's 'YAbably a given
that the buyers' representative
will encourage them to order
their own inspection, you also
have a greater sense of confi-
dence knowing that there
won't be any surprises.
If you have any doubts
about whether a prelisting
inspection will improve your
chances for an early sale, dis-
cuss it with your real estate
representative, who will also

suggestions for successfully
marketing your home.

Murder

charges await

lab results
BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Starke Police
Department is still awaiting the
results of crime lab tests before
deciding whether or not to
level charges at this time in the
murder of Edward Otis Smith,
55, of Starke on July 31.
According to SPD
Lieutenant Barry Warren,
Dallas Jerome Smith, 36, of
Gainesville, is a suspect in the
case, but the investigation has
not yet been concluded.
Suspect Smith, who is
apparently not related to the
victim, was still in the
Bradford County Jail as of
Tuesday afternoon. He was
arrested Aug. 1 on drug
charges.
The victim was found lying
on the living room floor at his
home on Ida Street in Starke,
after police were called at
around 5 p.m. regarding a
shooting.
According to police, it was,
at first, difficult to determine if
the puncture wound found in
the left side of the victim's
Chest was caused by a bullet or
a knife. Both a shell casing and
a knife were found at the
scene. An autopsy determined
the cause of death to be a
gunshot wound.
According to Police' Chief
Gordon Smith, suspect Smith
was found in a crack house in
Starke in the early-morning
hours of Aug. 1 with blood on
his person.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and its
crime lab are assisting SPD in
the investigation.
Anyone with information on
this incident should contact
SPD at (904) 964-5400.

probably wish you didn't have to.
It takes time you don't have and it's inconvenient. AMSOIL HAS AN ANSWER.
With AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil, you only change your oil twice a year
instead of every 3,000 miles. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils provide long-life
protection for your car even in severe service conditions. With AMSOIL, you
save both time AND money. --, --- ,
