The fiscal 2007-08 annual
budget for Union County has
been set at $5.4 million, a 3.6
percent increase from last year.
One item which largely
impacts the budget is a 20
percent increase across the
board in fuel costs. Today's
rising fuel prices have affected
the budget figures for the road

The major source of revenue
for the county is $2.4 million
in ad valorem taxes. Ad
valorem, or property taxes, go
towards funding the county
health department, Lake
Butler's redevelopment
district, Suwannee River Water
Management District, the
public library, municipalities
and the school system, but


only 10 mills of the total
millage levied in the area goes
to the county.
The annual budget includes
a revenue distribution of just
over $1 million from the state
under the Fiscally Constrained
County Act. Union County has
also received a legislative
appropriation grant of
$100,000 for the courthouse
facilities which will be used to
update the filing system and
storage facility components.


Under county expenses, all
county employees received a
five percent raise across the
board.
The Union County Sheriffs
Office takes up the largest
portion of the budget, at $1.6
million. Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead's annual salary is
set at $102,309, an increase of
less than $1,000 from last year.
A Community Crime
Prevention grant from the state
will account for $32,000 of the


sheriff's law enforcement's
expenses for the year.
Overall operating expenses
for the sheriff's office are
budgeted at more than
$333,000, an increase of more
than $30,000 from last year.

Tillis awarded Union Depot Pavillion project


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
On Sept: 10, the
commissioners of the city of
Lake Butler approved the
recommendation to award
construction of the Union
Depot Pavillion project to
Richard O. Tillis Contracting
in the amount of $160,009.16.
Tillis submitted his bid
along with two other firms
while he served as city
manager of Lake Butler.
Prior to his retirement on
Aug. 31, Tillis wrote to the
Florida Commission on Ethics
to be sure there would be no
conflict of issue with his
construction firm providing a
bid during his term as city
manager.
A response to his letter was
received on Aug. 14 from
Christopher Anderson, the


Artist's rendering of the completed pavillion, designed to resemble the former
Union train depot.

which read in part, "It appears
that a prohibited conflict of
interest for you will not be


created if the city purchases
construction services from
your firm. Although your
firm's bid was received during

In 2001, the Rails to Trails
Conservatory assisted the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection in
acquiring a 49-mile stretch of
abandoned corridor spanning
from Palatka to Lake Butler,
creating Florida's longest rail-
trail.
Early last year, the city of
Lake Butler received a
$200,000 grant from th'e
Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program to build a park for a
trail. The original design of the
trail has it ending in Lake
Butler, to the west of city hall.
That area has already been
enhanced to include a fitness
area with a dozen exercise
stations, allowing visitors to
stretch out and check their
heart rates before and after
exercise.
The Union Depot Pavillion
will be constructed around the
exercise and stretching area,
and will include a large,
covered pavillion resembling
the design of the original
Union train depot that once
stood on the site. There will be
restroom facilities, parking and
covered picnic areas as well as


trained. Keep in touch. Express yourself. Know your community.

The Union

Train Depot

In 1884, all merchandise
handled by Lake Butler's two
stores, the M.L. McKinney
store and Edge & Porter, was
hauled into town by wagon
from the nearest railway
stations in Lake City, Starke
Sand Olustee.
The first railroad, built by
the Georgia Southern and
Florida Railroad Company,
was completed in 1889 and
extended from Macon, Ga., to
Palatka.
Palatka had street car
facilities consisting.of a coach,
which ran on wooden rails and
was drawn by a pony mule.
When it was completed,
officials of the company gave
citizens of Lake Butler a free
ride.
In later years, the Atlantic
Coast Line was built and
crossed the Georgia Southern
and Florida Railroad in Lake
Butler. A large passenger and
freight depot was built west of
the crossing. Between the two
railroads was a lovely park
surrounded by a white picket
fence with walks, shrubbery
and beautiful flowers, which
served as the community
gathering place on Sunday
afternoons.
A horse-drawn cart met each
train; bringing its passengers to
the Duncan Hotel at 25 E.
Main St., where Maine.
Insurance and Real Estate sits
today. This was a famous
stopping place for many
travelers, known for its good
food and Southern h ospniity.

Union County 4-H
in the classroom

Working with the Union
County 4-H School
Enrichment program, Allison
Waters' third-grade class at
LBES is learning the science
of plants and how they grow.




BELOW: Sara Bostick

paper and plant she
learned about through
her third-grade teacher,
Allison Waters and a
4-H classroom project.


This photo, which appeared on the cover of the Union County Times' Sept. 9,
1993 edition, shows Union County High School quarterback Andrew Zow firing
one off to Maurice Griffin while Travis Rogers and Gerard Warren block for him
during the first game of the 1993 football season. Zow was the 6'0", 177-pound
freshman quarterback who led the team to a 42-0 victory in its season opener
against the Jacksonville Episcopal Eagles. During that memorable football
season, the Tigers were coached by.head coach Robby Pruitt and assistant
coaches Lanier Clyatt, Barry Sams, Steve Hoard, Buddy Nobles and Jerry
Graybeal. Now serving as head coach, Zow led the 2007Tigers to their first win of
the season against Hamilton.County last Friday night. See page 3C for more details.

Efforts are currently under

Clearing and mowing of the

Adult school
offers second
chance at diploma
It's never too late to learn.
This motto of the Union
County Adult School is
something the faculty there
takes seriously.
"The administration, faculty
and staff of Union County
Adult School'stand ready to
assist you in achieving your
academic goals," said Barry
Sams, director of the school.
It's not often that people can
easily get a second chance, but
the adult school allows
participants to go back and
complete their high school
diploma. This not only
provides a better education,
but also an opportunity to get
better jobs by improving math
and literacy skills before

Since Barnett traveled a lot,
he once made the back room at
the merchandise store his
sleeping quarters and took his
meals in the home of Col. L.B.
Rhodes. The store was not
much different from the typical
country store of the day. It had
a cracker barrel, pickle barrel
and even a barrel of liquor
which was kept in a side room.
Portions were sold to
customers who brought their
own mugs into the store. The
presence of the liquor barrel
prompted Barnett to leave
employment with the store,
although he reported in his
biography that he liked both
the owners and enjoyed his
job. He did a lot of praying for
the two men and seemed to
feel justified in the effort as
Rhodes later became a
Methodist minister himself and
York became a deacon in the
Baptist church.

War, Lake Butler's business

acted as the first postmaster.
O.W. Maines, grandfather of

assisted Porter as postmaster.

Lake Butler was the county
seat.
The area was settled early
on, but it was in 1859 that 40
acres of land was purchased
from the government and
streets were laid out for Lake
Butlet, the county seat of what
was then New River County.
When Baker County was
divided from New River in
1859, the remaining portion of
that, county was renamed
Bradford and Lake Butler
remained thecounty seat.
The town was named by an
early surveyor and the reasons
for the choice of "Lake Butler"
are not clear. Late in the 20th
Century stories circulated that
the town was named for .a
"Captain" Butler who died
during the Seminole Indian
War and was buried on the
north shore of the lake. It was
later proven that the heroic
soldier who gave his life
protecting the white citizens of


the area did not actually exist,
although the battle he was
supposed to have died in did
actually occur and soldiers did
lose their lives during it.
When Lake Butler was
established, some of the names
of the early residents found
in various records were
similar to names which are
found among families there
today. William J.D. Prevatt,
Capt. H.F. York, Capt. Roll
Thomas, Col. L.B. Rhodes,
John Croft and M.L.
McKinney were men listed as
being from Lake Butler when
they were inducted into
Company A of the 7th Florida
Infantry in 1862. They joined
Bragg's Army in Tennessee
shortly after induction.
Other records list early
residents of Lake Butler and
include Dr. O.V. Walton, Dr.
Sol Newsome, Thomas Irving
Dekle, Grancer Palmer, W.S.
Epperson and Major Joseph L.
Hill. Capt. York served as the
first clerk of the court and was
also a partner in a general
merchandise store, called York
and Rhodes. The Rev. R.H.
Barnett, an early circuit riding
preacher for the Methodist
Church, once worked for York
.and Rhodes. In early days it
was customary for Methodist
ministers to serve several
churches and ride out to a
different one each Sunday.

Teacher records hit the web


Florida School Breakfast Week


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
It's perhaps not an up-to-date
tool as it doesn't include
information on ongoing
investigations, but a new Web
site documenting punitive
action taken against Florida
teachers could keep some with
disciplinary histories from
bouncing from one school
district to another.
The Web site,
www.myfloridateacher.com,
contains a searchable database
of punitive action taken by the
Florida Department of
Education Bureau of
Professional Practice Services,
up to and including revocation
of their teaching licenses.
The Bureau of Professional
Practices Services investigates
alleged wrongdoings by
teachers in Florida who hold a
teaching certificate and
pursues disciplinary actions
against the certificates of
teachers found to have
committed acts of misconduct.
The information is public
record, but DOE has made it
more accessible by putting it
online.
Currently, the database only
includes actions taken by the
Bureau of Professional
Practice Services since
January. Information on
ongoing investigations is
private and is not included


HISTORY
Continued from p. 5A
Civil War and he relocated his
family to the Providence area.
Around 1875 he purchased a
laige section o lano near Lakc
Butler, 'which included the
Johnstown area, an
unincorporated 'settlement
between Lake Butler and
Raiford. He also purchased
other tracts in various areas
and operated a grits mill,
cotton gin and sawmill in
addition to his farm. He served
as county judge for 14 years.
F.M. Rivers founded the
Rivers Hardware Store in Lake
Butler during this early period
- about 1880 and
continued in operation until it.
burned in 1985. Rivers
attained fame t by
manufacturing his own'
invention, the Rivers "double
stock" plow, which was
popularly used all over Florida
and the South. The business
passed on to C.F. Rivers and
then to Wilson Rivers, who
still lives in Union County
today.
W.C. Townsend came to
Lake Butler from Georgia as a
school teacher. Townsend
married Susie Dekle and
Townsend's brother J.W.
Townsend, later married
Susie's sister, Lola. The
Townsend brothers had a
successful partnership in
farming and the turpentine
business. They bought large
quantities of land and built a
successful clothing store in
town. They built numerous
commercial buildings in town,
including the 1911 building
which once housed the
Farmers and Dealers Bank. It
has since been renovated and
is now the Driggers medical-
office building on Main Street.
The construction of most of


online. Since those
investigations can be lengthy,
it may take time before the
bureau actually takes action.
Anyone can search the
database by entering a specific
name or selecting a county
where the teacher was
working. Selecting the county
alone will produce a list of all
teachers disciplined in that
district.
Information listed in the
database includes a summary
of the allegations against the
teacher, the type of order
issued by the bureau and a
summary of the bureau's final
order.

Allegations may be criminal
in nature or they may be ethics
violations. Just because a
criminal charge is listed
doesn't mean the individual,
pleaded guilty or was ever
convicted of the offense.

Noncriminal charges are
considered a violation.of the
Code of Ethics and Principles
of Professional Conduct for
Educators.

According to DOE's Web
site, "A code of ethics for
educators represents what we
as members of the profession
and the community can and
should expect out of educators.


the early brick buildings in
town can be laid at the door of
the Townsend brothers,
including the building which is
currently being renovated to
serve Lake Butler as a museum
and meeting hall. Most of
these buildings where two-
story brick buildings with the
top floor used as hotel rooms
and the bottom used for
business operation.
Around 1880 Tom P.


It serves as a reminder to the
educator, that there are
obligations and expectations
that are associated with the
profession."
As with criminal charges,
the information provided on
alleged ethics violations does
not always indicate the
individual was found to be
guilty or admitted to the
underlying findings of the
investigation.
Still, the bureau's final order
is based on the outcome of
those investigations.
In either case, criminal or
ethical, the allegations may
involve misconduct on or off
the job.
Teachers applying for
certification may find
information on past offenses
listed on the Web site as well.
Applicants undergo intensive
background checks, and if past
crimes are uncovered, their
application can be denied. If
through the appeals process an
applicant were successful in
receiving a Florida teaching
certificate, their background
information would be posted at
myfloridateacher.com.
A search for Union County
showed no punitive action has
been taken against any of the
district's teachers.


Register, a Civil War veteran,
arrived in Lake Butler.
Register was a carpenter and
,vas father of Charles H.
Register, who served as Union
County's representative in the
Florida Legislature when
Union County was born in
1921.
Other early settlers of the
town included F.P and E.L.

Sept. 17-2
School cafeterias across
Florida will celebrate the first
ever Florida School Breakfast
Week Sept. 17-21 with the
theme; "Excellence begins
with school breakfast."
During the week, students
will focus on physical activity,
academic excellence and the
importance of starting each
day with a nutritious breakfast.
Florida School Breakfast
Week promotes the availability
of breakfast for all students at
school and the strong link
between eating a nutritious
breakfast and improved
academic achievement and
physical performance.
Research conducted by the
University of Minnesota and
Harvard University concludes
that students who eat breakfast
are more alert, have improved
memory and problem-solving
skills and perform better on
standardized tests.


The studies further show
that behavioral, emotional and
academic problems are more
prevalent among children with
hunger; however, academic
performance and readiness are
enhanced when students start
their day with a nutritious
meal.
"That is why we say that
school breakfast provides a
link to learning," said Janey
Thornton, MS, SNS, president
of the School Nutrition
Association.
Food and Nutrition
Management, the section of
the Florida Department of
Education responsible for the
administrative and financial
oversight of the federal Child
Nutrition Programs in Florida,
hopes to narrow the gap
between the number of Florida
students eating a school
breakfast-and school lunch.


In Florida, more than
488,000 school breakfast
meals are served to students
each day, whereas the school
lunch program serves an
average of 1.28 million lunch
meals to Florida students each
day.
School breakfast provides at
least one-fourth of the
nutrients needed by a.growing
child, contains less than 30
percent of calories from total
fat and contains less than 10
percent of calories from
saturated fat. These standards
meet the dietary guidelines for
Americans set by the USDA.
Participation in the program is
associated with higher intakes
of food energy, calcium,
phosphorous and vitamin C.

food and nutrition on Florida
schools, please visit

Do your
spring
cleaning in
the fall

BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
The city of Lake Butler has
once again declared the month


of October as Lake Butler Fall
Beautification Month.
Throughout the month, the
city will-free of charge-
remove any vacant, dilapidated
and dangerous buildings from
within the city limits at the
owner's request.
The city commission, in
recognizing that in order for
the community to prosper, it
must be a desirable and
attractive community, is also


asking each resident and
business to take this time to
repair, clean, improve and
landscape their properties
collectively.
Any non-desirable items
businesses or residents wish to
discard of can be placed at the
street for regular garbage pick-
up. Such items can include
anything from old washers or
dryers to furniture or other
scrap materials.


This is an early view of the Townsend block in Lake Butler.


LAKE
Continued from p. 6A


Odom who established a
mercantile store on the corner
of Main Street and Lake
Avenue D.F. McDonald,
Nathan Varnes and Mrs. Eyder
Knight. Other early family
names included Proctor,
Anthony, Johnson, Brannen,
Thomas, Dukes, Addison,
Johns, Andrews, Richards,
Harper, Colson, Chapman,
Hendricks, Dowling, Jones,
Mizelle, Biellings, Roberts,
Croft and Hall.
About 1882 O.W. Maines
moved from Georgia to Ft.
White and then to Lake Butler.
Maines operated a store on
Main Street, near the present-
day courthouse, which was
referred to as Truby-Sternberg
and Company. it was a long
-wooden building which had a
warehouse for ginned cotton in
the rear.
John A. King left Missouri
and was on his way to the rich
land in Providence around
Christmas of 1884 when he
stopped for a rest in Lake
Butler. He and his family,
including an ill daughter for
whom King hored the climate
and local doctors would be
beneficial, had arrived in
Starke by train and rented a
surrey and a wagon and team
of horses with which to finish
the move.
The family arrived in Lake
Butler and met a group of
citizens who were more
accomplished than a chamber
of commerce. Citizens
gathered round the family out
of curiosity and then talked
King into changing his plans
and living in Lake Butler. John
Dekle had a medicine shop in
town and Dr. Walton lived
nearby, so King's concerns for
his daughter's health were
answered. King and Dekle
later opened a drug store
together, located where the
Maines Real Estate office is
today. In 1894 King built the
building that later housed both
the Tomlinson-Maines Drug
Store and the post office.
In 1889, the railroad also
boosted growth in Lake Butler.
The Georgia Southern and
Florida rail line reached town
at that time and the Atlantic
Coast Line rail line came
through town in 1900-01. A
large depot was built at the
intersection of the two rail
lines in 1913. A beautiful park'
was adjacent to the depot. The
park, with its white picket
fence andnumerous benches,
was a project of the Lake
Butler Woman's Club. People
came to town to sit on the
benches, visit with friends and
-meet "40," the afternoon train
from Jacksonville.
L.A. Duncan came to town
in the 1890s and established a
large general store which sold
furniture, shoes, dry goods,
groceries, hardware and almost
anything else. He also owned a
stables which was operated by
Dick Hewitt. Mrs. Onie Pons
operated a millinery shop next
door. The "Duncan's House"
was actually a large hotel on
Main Street, located where
CVS Drugs is now.-Two large,
circular porches on the front of
the two-story house made it an
attractive lodging for travelers
who came in on the trains.
Traveling salesmen and
drummers often stayed there.
The hotel was well-known for
its large "lazy-susan" table
which was always generou ly
laid with food >oke by Mrs.
Duncan Id Kiuby L.inar. The
hotel even had shuttle service
from the depot. A beautiful
black horse named Prince


pulled a carriage driven by
George Marklee who met all
the trains and drove people to
and from the hotel.
In the early 1990s an
addition was built onto the
hotel and called the "annex."
This housed the post office
with Oscar Brown as
postmaster. It also housed a
barber shop operated by Elzey
Loadholtz and the local pool
room. The second story of the
annex housed additional hotel
rooms. The hotel burned down
in 1914.
The Duncans also owned a
cotton gin, located where
Howard Auto Parts is today.


The gin did a prosperous
business and records indicate
that at one sale alone, enough
ginned cotton changed hands
to bring $1 million to the
farmers of the area an
astronomical amount in the
early 1900s. The town
continued to prosper through
the 1920s, but as the
automobile began to replace
the train as America's chosen
means of travel, business
dwindled. S.R. 100 and S.R.
121 are traveled, but not nearly
so heavily as U.S. 301, so
Starke easily outstripped Lake
Butler in growth rate.

Florida leads attack on high tax

rates and big government


The size and cost of government,
from city hall to the halls of Congress,
has escalated out of control to the
dismay of conservative thinkers who
believe the time has come to review
what it is we want from government.
Do we want to return to yesteryear
when rugged individualism was the
way of life and people were responsible
for themselves and their families, or
do we want to continue on the road to
dependence on government for basic
needs like food, shelter and clothing?
We must be very careful in
determining our wants, for it's
possible we will get them, along with
unintended results that accompany
every possible government program
or shift in political philosophies.
The New Deal, a radical shift of
political philosophy led by President
Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s,
began the American era of government
support for individuals and businesses
to combat the economic depression
that engulfed the world, with mixed
results.
It's true, the "make work" jobs
provided food on the tableforthousands
of unemployed, and many projects
-were--substantial improvements to a
community, such as the courthouse in
Lake Butler, built with Depression-
era funds to provide jobs.
Those measures were generally
applauded, even by conservative
thinkers, but when the economy
rebounded in the late 1930s by the
nation's preparation for war, the
requirement for men and women to
report for work was eliminated and
for the next 40 years the welfare
state expanded into a philosophy of,
personal security, unrelated to, li% ing a
productive life.
Living on welfare became a way
of life, passed from generation to
generation until the cycle was broken
by Americans fed up with the direction
in which the nation was headed.
No one wishes to return to the pre-
Roosevelt days when government at
all levels did little for individuals, but
finding the proper balance between
individualism and cradle-to-grave
security may be likened to walking a
tightrope, and cost considerations must


be taken into account in fashioning a
national agenda.
The unintended resultof total security
is to rob the nation of individual
initiative, the engine that drives
progress in the many facets of life. It
was individual initiative that gave the
world the steam engine, electricity,
the gas engine that powers today's
automobiles, radio, television, air
conditioning and other conveniences
that ease the burden of living.
Most of the things we enjoy- today
had a genesis in the 19th century.in a
young nation without restrictions on
individual endeavor, as opposed by
much older nations whose inhabitants
were comfortable in established
routines and lacked a desire ..to
change.
Aside from two great wars and
other wars, battles and conflicts,
the 20th century brought our nation
big government and the requisite
higher taxes to the point that taxes
have become a part and parcel of
every business decision and many
personal decisions. At every level,
government is awash with money, and
elected officials are finding needs, ad
infinitum.
Enter Florida Gov. Charlie Crist,
who has called a halt on the ever
increasing cost of government and
has caused great consternation among
county officials by reducing ad
valorem taxes.
It may well be that a sea change in
American thinking is cresting and the
public is rethinking it's position on
excesses in government spending. Gov.
Crist enjoys very high public approval
and other elected policy makers may
follow his lead in.reducing spending.
of public funds to 'bolster their own
standings With \ others.
The ballot box is a powerful tool in
the hands of average Americans, and,
from time to time, voters have used
their voting rights to alter the course
of the nation. The next election may
be a watershed in history, determining
the destiny of the current generation
and those who will follow in our
steps.

Sunset of PIP
disastrous
prospect for
Sunshine
State
Imagine traveling Florida's
highways beside 4 million
uninsured drivers. That is
exactly what will happen on
Oct. I if the Florida
Legislature and Gov. Charlie
Crist fail to act and allow the
state's mandatory no-fault
motor-vehicle insurance to
expire.
As CEO of Shands
HealthCare, which runs six
emergency departments and
two Level I trauma centers that
serve North Central and
Northeast Florida, I feel it's
clear that this situation is a
prescription for disaster for all
Floridians.
Florida currently requires
drivers to carry a minimum
mandatory insurance in the
form of personal injury
protection (PIP) and property
damage (PD) coverage.
However, the Florida
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles has said
that if mandatory PIP coverage
is repealed, the state cannot
force drivers to carry PD
coverage. As a result, Florida
is poised to become one of
only three states in the U.S.
with no minimum mandatory
auto-insurance requirements
for drivers.
In light of the Florida
Legislature's postponement of
the special session to address
'budget issues, I hope Gov.
Crist will call a special session
to address PIP before it sunsets
on Oct. 1. Our leaders must
act to either reform and extend
the current system or replace it
with alternative mandatory
coverage-. Here' swhyl
Forty percent of patients
treated in hospital emergency
rooms and trauma centers have
no health insurance coverage
other than PIP and may face
personal financial disaster if
PIP is repealed.
While injured motorists who
lack other heath coverage will
be entitled. to emergency room
care, they may not be able to
obtain nonemergency follow-
up treatments from physicians
concerned that they will not
receive compensation.
:The,gosts of other t pes of
auto-insurance co\ erage-such
a i bodily inj ir. liability and
uninsured motorist coverage-
will go up for those,
responsible enough to obtain
such coverage.
Medical costs now covered
by PIP will be transferred to
health insurers, resulting in
higher health-insurance
premiums for employers, and
the self-insured. If employers
cannot afford the higher costs,
more workers and their
families will be left without
coverage.
A costly new wave of
litigation will arise, because
for every accident, fault will
have to be established to
determine liability.
Last year alone,. Shands
HealthCare's emergency
departments treated 1,703
auto-accident victims who had
no health insurance. This
number represents 44 percent
of the 3,845 motor-vehicle
accident victims brought to our
emergency departments.
Hospitals across Florida have
similar stories.
If Gov. Crist and legislative


leaders fail to address this
auto-insurance crisis in a
special session and do not
require mandatory coverage,
Floridians can expect a surge
of uninsured drivers; more
dangerous roads; higher-health
insurance and auto-insurance
costs; threats to healthcare
access; and a new wave of
costly, time-consuming
lawsuits over auto crashes.
By Tim Goldfarb
Shands HealthCare CEO


Juvenile crime
on increase
Dear Editor:
When I read the Gainesville
Sun, or the Florida Times-
Union, and even our own
Bradford County Telegraph, I
have noticed the increase in
young people committing
more violent crimes.
Gang related crime is on the
increase. There is a large
number of young thugs who
rob, rape, kill, or cripple us for
money to buy drugs, and a few
hurt us just for kicks. We used
to associate these kinds of
criminal acts with large cities,
but now our smaller towns and
communities are infested with
juvenile Bonnies and Clydes.

There are some folks who
refuse to believe our little
darlings are taking Crime 101
when their parents' backs are
turned. So, I reckon that when
little miss or mister sunshine
hijacks their cars at gun point,
they will drive away singing
"Twinkle, twinkle little star,
we just stole your expensive
car, and if we get caught it
won't be so bad because we
-will be released to good ole
mom and dad again."
Teenage criminals are forcing
their way into neighborhoods
throughout rural America and
even in Bradford and
surrounding counties crime is
on an upward trend. The police


and sheriffs department are
doing their job and they are
arresting more juvenile
offenders, but in some cases,
the same young hoods over and
over.
The Juvenile Justice System
throughout the country is a
disaster and will continue to
place good, law-abiding
citizens at risk. There are some
officers of the courts who keep
placing these troubled
youngsters back on the street
time, and time again. These
kids start thinking if they get
caught stealing your car, ATV,
or even commit burglary of
your home, they know that it
is only a little inconvenience
for them.
I believe that most of us
understand that juvenile
offenders should be given every
opportunity within reason to
adjust and find their niche in
society. But, when the courts
keep releasing young law
breakers repeatedly, with little
or no punishment, they begin
to lose all respect and fear of
criminal prosecution.
Most parents start teaching
their children right from wrong
and good, wholesome values at
an early age and hope and pray
for the best. I believe that most
adults my age were taught at a
very young age that there are
rules and regulations that we
must abide by and, if we chose
to neglect and break these
rules, there would be
guaranteed penalties to pay.
Most of the young.people in
our area are great and come
from extraordinary, decent,
hard-working families who try
real hard to teach their
adolescents that life is-an
adventure.
They need to follow their
inspiration and. grab their
ambitions but, they should
also understand that we all are
judged on our social behavior,
and that's the way I see it.
-Thank you

Union woman
faces fraud,
drug charges
A 30-year-old Union
County woman was arrested
Sept. 9 after she was found in
possession of drugs and
prescription blank forms.
Trish Lavonne Jones was
asleep in her vehicle on S.R.
121 at 7 a.m.. according to
Deputy Leslie Crews. A plastic
bag containing a white,
powdery substance was lying
in her lap, Deputy Crews said.
(The powder tested positive for
cocaine.) She attempted to hide
the cocaine when the deputy
woke her.
During a search of the
vehicle the deputy found 16
tablets of Methadone in a
prescription bottle in another
individual's name. A plastic
straw and half of a Methadone
tablet were also found. In the
back seat was a prescription
tablet containing eight blank
prescription order forms
addressed to a doctor in

Commissioner

encourages
lo not call list
SFlorida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
commissioner Charles H.
ironson announced today that he
,as taken legal action against a
Central Florida company for
violatingg Florida's "Do Not Call"
Thw.
A lawsuit filed in Seminole
county Circuit Court alleges that
ireat Southern Water Treatment
nfc., of Longwood, made at least
six calls to Florida residents on
.he state's "Do Not Call" list
between February and June 2007.
"This company has repeatedly
calledd consumers on the 'Do Not
jall' list, intruding on their
Privacy despite the fact that the
citizens went to the effort to get
teir phone numbers placed on
ihe list," Bronson said. "The
Siessage is that this activity will
lot be tolerated."
The legal action seeks an
junctionn prohibiting Great
Southern Water Treatment Inc.,
fom making any future calls to
fsidents on the list and fines of
|p to $10,000 for each of the
(alls it made to prohibited phone
numbers.
9 Bronson's department has


Jim DeValerio. the
coordination of the Buzz
Busters was again assumed hi
the Bradford Count\ E\tension
Service.
The partnership \\as
expanded this \ear to include
the University of Florida's
Integrated Pest Management
Florida (UF/IPM Florida), the
Bradford Count) Schools
Agricultural Education
Department and local Boy
Scouts Troop 70.
Thanks to a grant received
from Integrated Pest
Management Florida, the Buzz
Busters have been able to
provide additional assistance
in their mission to help
manage mosquitoes more
effectively by using the most


up to date methods this \ear.
-The concept of integrated
pest management is not new
and is a common sense
approach to solving pest
problems. It simply means that
\ou consider all there is to
kno\\ about a pest before
deciding.how \ou are going to
control it. Oftentimes, the trick
is to identify at what point in
the pest's life cycle is the pest
most vulnerable.
In the case of mosquitoes,
several techniques are used to
control the pest at all stages of
its life cycle. It is very
important to limit their
breeding potential by
managing storm water runoff.
Areas that continually catch
water-like storm water


basins-can be treated with
eco-friendly larvicides to kill
the swimming juvenile
mosquitoes and finally aerial
sprays are used to control the
flying adults.
Spraying adults effectively
requires being able to drive
within a mile of the infestation
so that the insecticide can drift
to the adults on the prevailing
wind. One bad thing about
spraying adults is that
oftentimes the spray kills all
insects, including many good
ones.
Sometimes there is so much
rain that countless breeding
sites occur so that aerial
spraying of mosquitoes must
be used to reduce the threat of
mosquito borne diseases to


humans.
The timing is perfect to use
home prevention measures
now. Because we have had
mostly occasional showers,
any actions taken to eliminate
breeding sites can make a big
impact on reducing mosquitoes
around your home.
Currently, the Buzz Busters
trap adult and juvenile
mosquitoes from zones that
span about 74 percent of
Bradford County on a weekly
basis. The idea is to discover
where mosquitoes are breeding
so that they can be treated in
the juvenile, larval stage. The.
Buzz Busters are trained to use
safe, effective larvicides when
they find mosquitoes breeding
in water.


If 25 or more adults are
collected in an overnight trap,
the Bradford County Mosquito
control agency is notified and
appropriate action is taken.
The mosquito population has
increased in Lawtey, Starke
(north and east) and Hampton
throughout the summer and
will Likely increase as we
move into our rainy hurricane
season.
If you have questions
regarding mosquito
management or the Buzz
Buster program, call Jim
DeValerio at the Bradford
County Extension Service at
(904) 966-6224.
Submitted by Jim DeValerio,
an agent with the Bradford
County Extension Service.


Illected or obtained judgments
of more than $1.5 million
against companies that have
e lled residents on the list, and
several such legal actions are
pending in courts throughout the
state.
SThe Commissioner encourages
Floridians to join the program,
which prohibits most
commercial telemarketers from
rolling numbers on the list. For
rgore information about the
program, consumers can call the
department's toll-free hotline at
I1800-HELPFLA (1-800-435-
7352) or visit the Division of
Consumer Services.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:


County
Commissioners
are not saving
us money
Dear Editor:
'You can read it one time,
even three or four times and it
is still almost impossible to
reason and understand just how
our local county government
cari do what it is trying to do
and still make any sense out of
it.
Almost every time you pick
up the paper someone on the
county commission is trying
to justify why they don't want
to save the taxpayer money.
Throughout the state, in our
capitol, in our governor's office
everyone is finding a way to
reduce our taxes and finding
reasonable, make sense
justification for it. But in
.Bradford County there is not a
chance in hell of that
happening. Not as long as we
have the likes of John Cooper,
John Wayne Hersey and
second-the-motion Ross
Chandler finding ways to rip us
off right and left.
A gas tax increase of 6
percent is ridiculous. The
headlines read "County
commissioners strike tax deal"
but you have to read the fine
print to see the selfish
inconsiderations that they plan
"to jam down our throats. They
think that you and I are stupid
enough to believe that they are
doing the best for the taxpayer.
It makes you sick to read their
justifications. Why don't they
say "lets go along with the
program that the governor and
the Legislature has set out for,"
that's right for the taxpayer.
Honestly, someone tell me
what is wrong with that. If
they go along with what most
of the state is doing, what will
happen? Will the sky fall, will
county government.crumble?
Will they have to reduce the
size? Have they ever considered
that something good might
come of it. God forbid that ever
happening.
But their lust for more tax
money still isn't enough, they
want more, Franchise fees.
special assessments are among
the manipulations they are
planning. Where it is
go:ernrmenti.enough is..ne.ver
enough
Take a good look at our local
county government during the
past two years, has anything


gotten better, our two person
manager's office has doubled.
Had to have it, too much
business, it never fails.
Anyone who has ever studied
governments learns that it will
always get bigger if bureaucrats
are allowed to run it. When
elected officials fail to act on
behalf of the electorate
government will run amok.

Lake Area
Ministries
gives thanks
Dear Editor:
On the Fourth of July you
might \have participated or
heard about the new annual 5k
race, with all of the proceeds
being pledged to Lake Area
Ministries. Deborah Strickland
and Hope Tate, decided they
would make the 5k race a part
of the annual Keystone's Our
Country Day festivities. They
did everything, from planning,
organizing, working with the
Our Country Day Committee,
and even getting corporate
donations to cover all of the
costs. They made it possible
for 100 percent of the race
proceeds to go to Lake Area
Ministries.
The large number of
participants that competed in
the 5k race exceeded everyone's
expectations raising almost
$10,000 for Lake Area
Ministries. Not only were we
surprised by the large number
of participants we are so very
grateful for the donations of
cash, and a lot of time and
dedication. We at LAM truly
Thank Deborah and Hope for
everything they have done to
help LAM, and to make this an
annual event.
On a smaller scale we
received an envelope in the
mail recently with a note and a
check. It was from Johnson's
Auto Center. The note read
something like "We decided
during the spring, for every oil
change we did we pledged
$2.50 to Lake Area Ministries.
Thanks for ail you do to help
those in need in the
community." The check was
another wonderful surprise.

Her specialty was oflIheat.
"wild and wacky" humor
combined with spiritual
content.

An avid reader
Coly, who resides in the
Tampa area with her husband,
Chuck, traces the origins-ofher
career. as a writer to her
childhood in Starke, when she
became a voracious reader.
"I loved the library. I would
ride my bike down S.R. 16 and
check out an armful of books,
take them home and read them
all and then return for more,'
she said.
"I literally read every young
adult book the library had."
By far her favorite book, she
said, was "Christy," by
Catherine Marshall which she
read nine times when she was
a teenager.
"It had a huge impact on my
life," she said. "I wanted to
touch someone else's heart and
faith the way Christy touched
mine," said Coty (attested to
by the fact that she and her
husband named their 22 year-
old daughter, Christy. They
also have a 24 year-old son,
Matthew).

A writer's journey
After graduating from
Bradford High School, she
attended the University of
South Florida for two years,
then went on to the University
of Florida where she got her
degree in occupational therapy.
As Coty reflected on her
belated entry into the literary
world, "Life, as life tends to
do, intervened and college,
marriage, career and babies
waylaid my plans."
Then, she said, one day she
saw a magazine ad in the
dentist's office for a writing
contest and believed it was

Chrysler offers



lifetime warranty

y Firm says expanded coverage, an industry first, shows
ry confidence in powertrains, gives consumers peace of mind.--


By Josee Valcourt
The Detroit News

The Chrysler Group upped the
warrants ante Thursday by
announcing lifetime powertrain
coverage for most net\ models in
a bid to push Chr)sler, Dodge
and Jeep vehicless to the top of
consumers shopping lists.
The automaker said the life-
time warranty, a first for the
industry, is a statement of
confidence in the reliability of its
pow ertrains and designed to give
consumers peace of mind about
their vehicles.
We came to the decision that
we don t want to match
everybody, we want to go way
beyond that. Steven Landr.,
Chrysler s executive \ice
president of sales and marketing.
ser ice and parts for North
America,,s,a!d during a media
confere-nce call.- -
The extended warranty,
available on gasoline-powered
2007 and 2008 models sold
beginning Thursday. covers the
cost of parts and labor to fix the
engine, transmission and drive
system. It is limited to the first
registered owner or lessee of a
%chicle and is not transferable.
The new warranty replaces
Chrysler s three-year or 36,000-
mile coverage. lntil this week,
General Motors Corp. and
Hyundai Motor Co. offered the
most competitive warranty
packages \with coverage up to-
100,000 miles or 10 years. We
wanted to be unprecedented,
Landry said. We want'to show
the confidence that we have in
our products, both at our level
and our dealers level, and
provide customers with a level of
comfort unprecedented in the
industry.
Landr, said Chr sler'
conducted research that
supported the extended warranty.
The study found that consumers
who knew about the lifetime
pow ertrain coverage were more
likely to consider a Chrysler
product, whether they currently
own a Chrysler vehicle or not.
It helped give us 'a pretty
strong indication, that we d be,
taking it in the right direction,
Landry said
To qualify for the warranty
coverage, car buyers must ha\e a
powertrain inspection e\ery five,
years, which will be performed
at no charge by .an authorized
Chr sler, Dodge or Jeep dealer.
This is better really than
anybody, said Tom Libby,.
senior director of industry
analysis at Power Information
Network, an affiliate of J.D.
Power and Associates. It gives
them a message that they can use
to really promote the brand, and
company and its going to cut
through a lot of clutter.


Industrywide, new-car buyers
typically trade in their vehicles
after 5.3 years of ownership,
according to J.D. Power. In
comparison, the a erage for those
who buy Chrysler, Dodge and
Jeep vehicles is five years. By
brand, the average is 5.1 years for
Chrysler cars and trucks, 4 9
years for Dodge and 5.2 years for
Jeep.
The increased warranty also-
signals that- Chrysler s pending
new owner, Cerberus Capital
Management LP, is dead
serious about turning Chrysler
around. It says they re not
going to sit around Libby said.
They re going to be competitive
and motivated.
The warranty offer may help
the automaker offset its costly
incentive spending.
They re hoping to not have to-
increase (incentive_-spe nding)--
even more, -said Rebecca
Lindland, analyst with Global
Insight Inc. Its a way to
sweeten the deal without adding
more incentives.
Chrysler launched a new ad
campaign for the warranty
Thursday with one 30-second
television spot for each brand.
The decision to increase the
\warranty coverage stemmed from
a meeting with Chrysler s dealer
council in January, when
retailers major gripes were
discussed. Top issues of concern
were stock inventory, marketing
and warranties, Landry said.
The automaker has reduced
inventory levels, and poured
millions into advertising' at the
national level and to support
dealers. Now, it is boosting
warranties.
Landry said should a new
owner decide to sell their vehicle
within the first three years of
ownership. Chrysler s standard
three-year'36,000-mile coverage
will replace the lifetime_
powertrain warranty for the
subsequent owner.
SDealers are ecstatic about the
program.
It s a closing tool, said Ron
Kutz of Dallas Dodge Chrysler
Jeep. When the customer gets
up and says, I m not quite sure
that I want to go look at that, the
sales manager can say, Don t
forget that we re the only car
company that s so bullish about
our product that 'we offer lifetime
warranty.
Dealers say the new -warranty
package will increase consumers
confidence in Chrysler, Dodge
and Jeep vehicles.
More than anything, to a
consumer the warranty means
quality, said Doug Wilson,
president of Wilson Dodge in
Flowood, Miss. It overcomes
any quality perception problem
that they might have. .

BIZZELL
Continued from p. 1C
fishing, which he in no \way
has allowed his injuries to
curtail. Some four years ago,
through his membership with
the National Wild Turkey
Federation, he learned of a
special sub-group within that
organization called Wheelin'
Sportsmen NWTF, which is
devoted to giving the
handicapped the opportunity to
go out into nature and continue
their hunting and fishing
activities.
Bizzell said the idea of the
organization is to empower
former hunters who suffer a
wide spectrum of handicaps-
amputation, paralysis and other
disabilities-to enjoy their
outdoor hobbies.


"Thanks to Wheelin'
Sportsmen, these people have
a choice other than perhaps
sitting idly at home," Bizzell
said. "They can forget about
their physical problems and
enjoy a hunt in the great
outdoors."
Bizzell said he had the
choice between sitting around
the house with his mind on his
chronic pain or experiencing
the therapeutic effect of getting
out- into the solitude .and
relaxation of nature.
On a typical hunt, Bizzell
said there may be as many as
40 participants, with
organization members of
varying numbers to help the
handicapped hunters or
fisherman have as successful
and enjoyable an experience as
possible. This might include
helping wheelchair-bound
hunters occupy their stands in


the woods and bringing them
food and water as needed.
Bizzell said he has also seen
the helpers assist blind hunters
aim their rifles and tell them
when to pull the trigger.
He also told of a specially
designed apparatus which
allows armless or paralyzed
hunters to fire their weapons
by simply blowing through a
special tube at the crucial
moment.
Subsequently, Bizzell
learned of another organization
called the Physically
Challenged Bowhunters of
America Inc. According to its
code of ethics, "the PCBA
works to share the wonderment
of the sport of bowhunting
with others, especially the
-physically challenged, at every
opportunity." It also states that
it works closely with hospitals,
and rehabilitation facilities to


give bowhunting a positive
image and get patients (and
staff) interested in it. if they
are not already.
Those interested in Wheelin'
Sportsmen can call Kirk
Thomas at (800) 843-6983.


For Physically Challenged
Bo\\hunters of America, call
Frank Zsenak at (609) 737-

latter, you may call Eddie

Tigers defeat Hamilton County 20-14 for season's first win


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Special teams and defense
made their mark on the Union
County football team's second
game of the season, a 20-14
win over Hamilton County on
Sept. 7 in Jasper.
The Tigers' first win this
season got a boost from a
blocked punt that set up a short
touchdown run by fullback
Justin Hanson and a fumble
that was recovered in the end
zone by Michael Chandler for
what would prove to be the
winning touchdown.
Union (1-1) showed it came
to play defense early, forcing
the host Trojans into a third-
and-18. Shandale Lee then
recorded a sack, forcing
Hamilton to punt.
The Tigers took over at the
Hamilton 44 and immediately
gained 5 yards after Hamilton
was flagged for a penalty.
Quarterback Chris Alexander
then handed off to Justin
Tyson, who ran the ball into
the end zone .with 6:52 left in
the first quarter. The kick was
good, bringing the score to 7-
0.
Aggressive play by the
Tigers continued as the
Hamilton player who returned
the ensuing kickoff was hit
hard by Union's Adam Waters.
The Tigers remained all over
the Trojans, who eventually
faced a fourth-and- 11.
Several penalties hurt the
Union offense early in its next
series, but a pass from
Alexander that was
overthrown was caught when
Jordan Clyatt made a high
jump, giving the Tigers a first
down.
Another penalty, however,
forced Union kicker Cody
Bogard to attempt a field goal,
which was off the mark at the
start of the second quarter.
Hamilton County took


penalties-but the Trojans had
one last chance when they got
the ball with a minute left to
play.
Union's defense forced the
Trojans into a fourth-and-10
play. Hamilton called a
timeout, but the following play
was an incomplete pass, giving
the Tigers the chance to ice the
Victory.
With everyone assuming
Union would take the

possession of the ball, but the
Trojans quarterback faced
immense pressure from the
Tigers defense. On third-and-
9, Scott Wethy recorded a sack
to force a punt attempt.
Union blocked the punt,
which was recovered, by
Lonnie Gosha for a first-and-
goal two-and-a-half yards
away from. the goal line. That
proved to be an easy
touchdown for Hanson, and
the Tigers went up 13-0 after
an unsuccessful PAT.
Momentum seemed to be on
the Tigers' side, but Hamilton
grabbed some of it back by
returning the ensuing kickoff
from the 33 for a touchdown.
The PAT was good, bringing
the score to 13-7.
This time, it was the


Trojans' turn to apply
defensive pressure. Alexander
was sacked on a third-and-10
play, which forced the Tigers
to punt.
Things worked out for the
Tigers, however, as Hamilton
was flagged for a block in the
back. The Trojans were pinned
against their own goal line
when they fumbled the ball.
Chandler jumped on it in the
end zone, scoring another
touchdown for the Tigers.
The PAT was good, bringing
the score 'to 20-7.
Strong defensive play
continued for Union. Zeke
Scaff had a sack to end the
first half, while Gosha, Tyson,
Aaron McRae and S.J.
Simmons made some really
nice tackles in the second half.


Simmons proved his agility on
defense by making an
interception that likely
prevented a score by the
Trojans, while his brother,
Sammy Simmons, made a
good tackle during a Hamilton
handoff.
The third quarter was
scoreless, but three minutes
into the fourth quarter, the
Hamilton quarterback, after
fumbling the ball, fired a pass
right into the hands o'f his
intended receiver, who ran it in
for a touchdown. The PAT cut
the Tigers' lead to 20-14.
Neither team's offense could
get anything going throughout
the remainder of the quarter-
the Tigers hurt themselves on
several occasions with


Winless Warriors up next for Union Co.


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
While the Bradford and
Keystone Heights. football
teams both enjoy an off week,
the Union County Tigers will
try to build upon some
momentum as they attempt to
win their second.straight game
against a winless West Nassau.
team on Friday, Sept. 14, at
7:30 p.m. in Lake Butler.
The Tigers got into the win
column last week with their
20-14 win over Hamilton
County, but West Nassau, a
Class 2A team, fell to 0-2
when it was shut out 17-0 by
Clay.
Key players such as senior
quarterback A.J.
Higginbotham, senior wide


receiver Kent Thomas and
senior kicker Austin Guffen
return this season, but the
Warriors lost more than 25
seniors from last season's 6-4
team.
Higginbotham, who passed
for more than 1,300 yards last
season, has three interceptions
'and just 21 completions in 47
attempts this year, averaging 8
yards per completion. Thomas
has eight receptions for 77
yards, while Guffen has had
his only PAT attempt blocked.
.West Nassau opened the
season with a 24-6 loss to
Episcopal. Higginbotham's 2-
yard touchdown run was the
only score for the Warriors,-
while Episcopal scored on an
11-yard run and a 23-yard
pass.


In the loss to Clay, the
Warriors gave up touchdowns
on passes of 6 and 20 yards.
The Warriors are averaging
95 yards rushing and 93 yards
passing. Their defense is
allowing 156 rushing yards per
game and 96 yards passing.
Opponents are completing just
40 percent of their passes
against the Warriors.
Last year, only one of West
Nassau's six wins-a 38-8 win
over Hilliard-came against an
opponent with a winning
record (Hilliard finished 6-4
also).


Union and West Nassau
played no common opponents
last year.
The last time the Tigers and
the Warriors squared off was
in 2002. West Nassau built a
24-0 lead en route to winning
30-14.
Union did not score until
Jeremy Brown's 1-yard
touchdown run in the third
quarter. (C.J. Spiller later
added a 23-yard touchdown
run.)
The Tigers committed four
turnovers, while West Nassau
had none.

possibly happen took place.
The Tigers fumbled the ball
back to the Trojans, giving
them one more chance.
Union fans were on their
feet making enough noise to be
heard back home as Hamilton
tried to make a score.
Hamilton had no timeouts,
however. Two -incomplete
passes and a near interception
by S.J. Simmons forced the
Trojans into a fourth-down
play. Hamilton failed to
convert when Lee made a
tackle to give possession of the
ball back to the Tigers with
less than 30 seconds remaining
on the clock.
The Tigers did fumble the
ball again, but time expired as
Hamilton fell on the loose ball.
Union assistant coach Bubba
Wilson was the first to point
out to the players that
Hamilton had not been able to
stop the offense. Instead, the
Union offense stopped itself
with mistakes, he said.
Head coach Andrew Zow
called for a round of applause
for the Union defensive
players, whose play, in
essence, won the game.

HOW IT ALL
Have you ever wondered
how and when "real estate" lar
became a national industry, and inc
buyers and sellers began to seek ho
professional representation? we
You may be surprised that real- cki
ty's modem history began less ch
than a century ago. Those early mo
days have affected home own-
ership ever since. Im
Back in the 1920s. Herbert ine
Hoover pushed the idea that ing
home ownership was the foun- Th
dation of democracy. He and tht
others helped to professionalize we
and standardize the practice of Ox
building and selling homes, sei
It wasn't until the Great sec
Depression. however, that the in'
government really got involved mt
with the National Housing Act pr
of 1934. Critical to the act was ris
the introduction of motInaie lse
insurance and putting c'1:i! pr(
lished practices into law.

After these policy changes,
ge numbers of middle-

healthy and upper working
iss could afford such a pur-
ase. and usually without a
mortgage.
Now we can apply our
odem perspective and imag-
e how things might be chang-
I in our current economy.
ie "middle class" is feeling
e squeeze as the gap between
:alth and poverty grows.
owning a home makes more
nse now than ever, as a
:ure place to live and as an
vestment. But great care
ust be taken to avoid the
:oblems of over-financing and

and planets.
"The students love them,"
Woods said.
This is the second year the
Kiwanis Club has purchased
dictionaries for third-graders-
whether they attend public
schools or are home-schooled.
The idea came about at a
leadership-training convention
attended by Cheryl Canova,
the club's president, and Bear
Bryan, the president-elect. The
Florida Kiwanis governor
challenged each of the state's
clubs to provide dictionaries to


to students contain more than
words and definitions. They
also contain world maps,
weights and measurements, the
periodic table, multiplication
tables, profiles of each of the
50 states and each president,


students, and the Kiwanis Club
of Starke was the first to do so.
"It doesn't cost a whole lot
of money, but it does make a
big difference," Canova said,
referring to hopes the students
will continue to use the
dictionaries throughout their
school years.
Lynn Marshall, a teacher at
Hampton Elementary School,
told Canova she witnessed this
yea's fourth-graders show up
on the first day of school with


the dictionaries they received
as third-graders last year.
Each dictionary is affixed
with a Kiwanis Club label-
donated by Sporting Chance-
and bears the name of the
student it was presented to.
"They couldn't believe they
could keep them," Woods said
of her students.
The Ki'wanis Club of Starke
purchased 300 dictionaries,
with 276 being presented to
students. The extra dictionaries


were presented to the teachers
to keep in their classrooms.
Canova said the club
decided to present dictionaries
to third-graders because that is
when students first take the
FCAT. Schirrmacher said the
dictionaries will help because a
portion of the test does deal
with the use of reference
materials.
"It's definitely valuable for
them to get these dictionaries,"
Schirrmacher said.

Indians outlast Ft. White, win 48-40 ,


By ARNIE HARRIS
eJ/'L/raph Stly' Writer
There a\\s a harn burner at
the Ke\ lone Heights'High
School football field on Sept.7.
In an action-packed affair. the
host Keystone Indians
managed to outscore the Fort
White Indians by a score of
48 40.
Ho\\ceer, as KHHS head
coach ('huck Dickinson said,
this \vas a game that would
give much more enjoyment to
the spectators than the
coaches, as both teams'
defenses and special teams
struggled.
While pleased with his
offense's productivity, and the
running of Greg Taylor (who
racked--up an impressive 172
yards on 12-c-atrJies) and Matt
Story (83 yards on 14
altemp(s) behind effective
blocking, lie was concealed
about the many defensive
lapses.
"We're going to have to
work on ourll defense and
special teams. They were
missing too many tackles, not
slaying in their defensive lanes
and often lining tip in the
\wrong formations," Dickinson
said,
He said he was happy that
with no game next week, the
Indians (2-0) have extra time
to work on these problems.
Fort White (0-2) drew first
blood in a time-consuming,
'79-yard drive culminating in a
13-yard .touchdown pass to
receiver Jordan Dewhirst with
5:03 remaining in the first
quarter, putting Fort White up
7-0.
Keystone took little more
than a minute to even the score
as Story ran the kickoff back
46 yards to the Fort White 28.
Greg Taylor took over from
there and roared into the end
zone from the 10, evening
things at 7-all at the 3:54, mark
of the first quarter.
In response, Fort White's
Alexis Blake took the kick-off
and raced 96 yards to pay dirt,
putting the visitors back on
top, 14-7, with 3:39 left in the
first quarter.
As the KHHS side of the
seesaw came up again, Story
took the ensuing kickoff and
raced 48 yards to the Fort


Keystone
running back
Matt Story
(shown
carrying the
ball in the
Indians' Aug.
31 game
against
Lafayette) was
a big part of the
shootout with
Fort White,
scoring five
touchdowns to
help his team
to the eight-
point win.


While 27.
Taylor got the call and on
two carries moved the ball to
the 1, where running back
Thomas Ricketts did the
honors, knotting the score at
14-all with 1:29 remaining in
the first quarter.
Fort White answered with a
47-yard drive, which cameto a
halt as running back Montre
Cray fumbled and defensive
back Dillon Van Wagner
recovered it at the Keystone
17.
This time Fort White's
defense toughened up and
forced KHHS to punt.
Fort White shot itself in the
foot again on the next drive
when KHHS defensive back
Lee Lambert picked off a pass
from quarterback Alex Gilmer
and returned the ball 29 yards
to Fort White's 12.
Story put KHHS ahead, 21-
14, with a I-yard plunge with
1:29 remaining in'the half.
Seeking to tie the score
again, Blake carried the ball in
from the 1 with six seconds
remaining in the half. The PAT
went awry and at halftime
KHHS held a fragile 21-20
lead.
On the first drive of the
second half. KHHS, behind
Story and Taylor, and a 31-


yard reception by Cameron
Yarbrough (on one of only two
passes attempted by
quarterback Clayton Mosley),
drove 65 yards. The drive
culminated in a 10-yard
scoring dash by Story. The
PAT was blocked, and the
score stood at 27-20 in KHHS'
favor at the 9:39 mark of the
third quarter.
Fort White responded with a
70-yard drive, culminating in a
10-yard' touchdown pass
hauled in by Dewhirst, tying
the score at 27-all with 2:29
remaining in the third quarter.
KHHS jumped ahead again
on its next series. Key was
Taylor's electrifying 26-yard
straight-ahead charge, with
defenders carried along for the
ride, down to the Fort White
11.
Story took it in from there to
put KHHS on top 34-27 with
1:42 left in the third quarter.
Keystone's defense shut
down Fort White on the next
series and took over on downs.
Highlighted by a 30-yard run
by Taylor, KHHS scored a
touchdown at the 6:51 mark of
the fourth quarter with Story
toting the ball 17 yards and
putting KHHS ahead 41-27.
The determined Fort White
team struck back with a 39-

touchdown reception by
Dew\ hirst \with 2:30 left in the
contest. Keystone's lead was
cut to a precarious 41-34.
On KHHS' next series,
Taylor raced 55 yards to Fort
White's 6. from which Story
carried the ball in with 1:47
left in the game, putting KHHS
up 48-34.
However, Fort White's
Blake took the kickoff and
returned it 88 yards for a
touchdown at the 1:28 mark to
make the score 48-40
That capped the scoring on
the wild affair as KHHS kept
the clock ticking to the final
buzzer with Mosley taking a
knee.
Keystone is off this week,
but will return to action Friday,
Sept. 21, in a home game
against district opponent
Interlachen at 7:30 p.m.

Thanks...
Dickinson extended thanks
to Capital City Bank and Super
Chief for the Aug. 31
Lafayette pre-game meal and
Helen Hersey Realty and
Roberts Insurance for the same

Keystone sweeps


Union for district


volleyball win


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Only .one team could come
out of the match with its first
district win of the season. That
team was Keystone Heights,
which defeated visiting Union
County 3-0 on Sept. 6 in a
matchup of District 6-3A
volleyball teams.
Keystone (2-2, 1-1 in
District 6 prior to Sept. 11)
rallied in the third game to
complete the sweep and even
its district record after losing
to Interlachen on Sept. 4. The
Indians won by scores of 25-
17, 25-17 and 25-22.
Union County (2-8, 0-2) was
trying to rebound from a
district loss to Pierson Taylor.
The host Indians led 20-12
in the first game, but the
Tigers climbed ,back into the
game, getting two service aces
from Markie Emery. Keystone,
however, ptit the game away,
with Kim Russell's tip over the
net falling for a kill and game
point.
An ace by Union's Carson
Mize pulled the Tigers. within
four points early in the second


game, but Keystone responded
by scoring four straight points
to go up, 19-11. Shannon Gray
and, Katie Taylor each had a
kill for the Indians during the
sequence.
A kill from each of those
two players later put. the
Indians up by a score of 22-13.
Russell would later finish up
that game as well with another
tip falling in for the game-
winner.
The Tigers turned a three-
point lead in the third game
into one of seven points with
Jessica Parrish serving. Parrish
had two aces and Emery had a
kill to help Union go up 16-9.
Keystone trailed 17-11
before rallying to take a 19-17
lead with Cortnee Pace
serving. Pace had two aces
during the run, while Morgan
Maxwell had two blocks.
The- teams exchanged
ser% ice errors several iirhhP'
before Keystone's Carey
Taylor recorded a kill to give
the Indians the 25-22 win.
Katie Taylor led the Indians

Tornadoes can't rally late, lose 12-7 to Baker County


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford High School made
things interesting by.scoring a
fourth-quarter touchdown to
make it a five-point game, but
visiting Baker County used its
ball-control offense to prevent
the host team from getting
another chance to score as the
Wildcats defeated the
Tornadoes 12-7 on Sept. 7 in
Starke.
Chuckie Covington's 3-yard
touchdown run put Bradford
(1-1) on the board with 6:53 to
play, but Baker County never
relinquished the ball after
receiving the ensuing kickoff.
The Wildcats (2-0) gained four
first downs. Senior quarterback
Carlos Holton accounted for
two of those on runs of II and
9 yards.
Holton led all rushers in the
game, gaining 104 yards on 14
carries. He had a 9-yard
touchdown run while also
completing 5-of-ll passes for
46 yards.
"He was probably the
difference in the game,"
Bradford head coach Steve
Hoard said. "Without him, I
think we probably beat that
team."
Bradford's defense did force
two turnovers, but the 'Cats,
who had 22 first downs, held
onto the ball for more than 31
minutes.
The Tornadoes' offense
played a part in that by going
three-and-out on three of their
six possessions and throwing
an interception after just two
plays on another series.
Bradford had 118 total yards
to Baker's 318 and gained just
six first downs.
Hoard said the productivity
points toward youth and
inexperience. Quarterback
Rodney Mosley is a
sophomore and most of the
players on the offensive line
are first-year starters.
"It's almost a new football
team," Hoard said.
Bradford's offense did put
together a promising drive to
open the game. Runs of 11 and
12 yards by Covington and
Mosley, respectively, netted
two first downs and moved the
Tornadoes to the Baker 35. An
intentional grounding penalty
hurt the team and the
Tornadoes eventually punted.
Baker County was forced to
punt on its first series of the

tackle.


game as well, but the Wildcats
got the ball right back when
Mosley threw an interception.
The 'Cats, with the ball at their
own 44, responded with an
eight-play scoring drive.
Harold Moore had an 11-run
to the Bradford 38, which was
followed by a 10-yard pass
completion by Holton. Moore
ripped off another run that was
good for a first down at the 15-
yard line.
Two consecutive runs by
Lucious Lee set Holton up for
a 9-yard touchdown run at the
11:10 mark of the second
quarter. Holton was stopped
short of the goal line on the
two-point conversion,
however, and the Wildcats led
6-0.
That would be the score at
.the half, though Baker' did'
threaten to go into the locker
room with a bigger lead.
Baker had the ball at its own
13 with 8:48 remaining in the
half. Lee had a 6-yard run for a
first down, while a penalty on
Bradford resulted in another.
Running back Greg
Williams, who touched the ball
for the first time on this drive,
then had a 27-yard run to the
Bradford 32.' Hank Farmer
followed with a 7-yard run, but
the Wildcats fumbled the ball,
which Bradford recovered at
the 22.
The Tornadoes almost got a
gift to open the second half


when the Wildcats muffed the
opening kickoff. Baker County
recovered the loose ball,
however, and marched
downfield for jts second score
of the game.
Holton scrambled for 19
yards on a second-and-15 play.
That put the Wildcats on the
Bradford 30, but a personal
foul penalty on the Tornadoes
during the play tacked on 15
yards and put the ball at the 15.
Williams bulled his way to a
10-yard gain from there before
he crossed the goal line from 5
yards out, putting Baker up 12-
0 three minutes into.the half.
Holton's pass on the two-point
conversion fell incomplete.
Baker, after forcing
Bradford to go three-and-out,
seemed well on its way to
increasing its lead, driving to
the Bradford 28. Two
consecutive holding penalties,


however, pushed the Wildcats
back to their own 49. They
fumbled the ball away on a
botched punt attempt on
fourth-and-28, giving the
Tornadoes the ball at their own
43.
A 9-yard run by Rob Harris
eventually set up a fourth-and-
inches for Bradford, which the
Tornadoes converted after a
sneak by Mosley. A 9-yard run
by Covington gave the
Tornadoes a first down at the
Baker 33 before Jernard Beard
hauled in a 28-yard pass from
Mosley along the sideline,
which gave Bradford a first-
and-goal at the 5.
Baker's defense held the
Tornadoes out of the end zone
on three plays before
Covington scooted in from 3
yards out. Tyler Cubbedge's
PAT pulled the Tornadoes
within five, but the offense


never got the ball back. Beach.

Indians 3-2 on Sept.. 4. in

19-25 and 15-10, was the
beneficiary of multiple
