Fall back a little later this year


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Beginning this year,
Daylight Saving Time, or
DST, began at 2 a.m. March
11, the second Sunday of the
month. When DST goes into
effect, all clocks must be
moved ahead one hour.
Standard Time now resumes
on the first Sunday of
November at 2 a.m. when
everyone sets their clocks back
one hour. This year, the first
Sunday of November falls on
Nov. 4.
Prior to 2007, DST began at
2 a.m. on the first Sunday in
April and ended at 2 a.m. on


the last Sunday in Octolier.
The new changes came
about on Aug. 8, 2005, when
President Bush signed the
Energy Policy Act, which
included the changes to DST
described above to go into
effect as of 2007.
The new rules for DST add
an extra four or five weeks of
DST each year. There will now
be a total of 238 days of DST,
compared to a total of 210
days of DST observed in 2006.
The United States will remain
on DST for about 65 percent of
the year.
A history of DST
In 1918, in order to conserve
resources for the war effort,


U.S. Congress placed the
'country on DST for the
remainder of WWI. It was
observed for seven months in
1918 and 1919. The law,
however, proved so unpopular
that it was later repealed.
When America went to war
again, Congress reinstated
DST in February 1942. Time
in the U.S. was advanced one
hour to save energy. It
remained advanced one hour
forward year-round until Sept.
30, 1945.
From 1945 to 1966, there
was no U.S. law about DST
and states and localities were
free to observe it if they
wished.


However, this caused
confusion, especially for the
broadcasting industry, and for
trains and buses. Because of
the different local customs and
laws, radio, TV stations and
transportation companies had
to publish new schedules every
time a state or town began or
ended DST.
By 1966, some 100 million
Americans were observing
DST through various local
laws and customs. Congress
decided to step in put an end to
the confusion by establishing a

WAP assists
low-income
families

BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer


With the month of October
serving as National Energy
Awareness Month, Oct. 30 has
been designated as National
Weatherization Day by
proclamation of Gov. Charlie
Crist. The Weatherization
Assistance Program, or WAP,
was created in 1976 to assist
low-income families who
lacked resources to invest in
energy efficiency. WAP is
operated in all 50 states and
the District of Columbia, and
works with Native American
tribes. The funds provided, by
Congress are used to improve
the energy efficiency of low-
income dwellings using the
most advanced technologies.
Florida's WAP is
administered by the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs in cooperation, with
community action agencies
and have reduced energy costs
by an average of 25 percent in
more than 38,250 homes,
affecting more than 107,000
Floridians, including many
who are elderly, disabled,

Open Letter to Jason Johns, Brian Shepherd, and Stephen Wells

Dear Pastors,
Since October is Pastor Appreciation Month, your church family at
First Baptist is taking this opportunity to let you and our community
know how much you are loved and appreciated.

Paster Jason, since you came here as our senior pastor last October,
God has abundantly blessed us through your ministry. Our numbers
have grown greatly, but more important than our growth rate is that we
are experiencing a deeper relationship with God under your leadership-
and example.

Pastor Brian, even though you have been here for just seven months
as our youth pastor, the impact of your work is obvious. Your energy
and enthusiasm combined with your willingness to allow God to use
you to reach out to teens is making a tremendous difference in their
lives.

Pastor Stephen, you make it clear that depth of service is not
proportionate to length of service. Although you have been our worship
pastor for just eight weeks, it is already apparent to us that you are
using your musical gifts to help us worship and praise God on a whole
new level.

We also grateful for your wives who have become such a vital part of
our church. Their willingness to share their time and talent is truly
valued.

We look forward to growing together with you in Christ's love and'
touching lives for eternity.

Your Family at First Baptist Church

Harden handed the ball to
Tyson and he ran down the
side almost in for a
touchdown, but stepped'out of
bounds. On the next handoff to
Couch, he made it in for the
score with Harden making the
2-point conversion. On the
Braves next possession, they
again ended in a turn over on
downs just at the start of the
second quarter.

Starting, at the Braves' 46
yard line, Harden made a 5
yard run then handed the ball
off to Tyson who ran it in for a
45 yard touchdown. The score
was 24 -0. The Braves tried to
get 'past the Tiger defense only
making short gains with a nice
tackle by Caleb Dtkes.
Cheifland was forced to punt
the ball which was fumbled
and recovered by the Tigers.
Passes from Harden .to
Tyson and Couch accounted
for another Tiger touchdown.
Harden _made the two-point
conversion, making it 32 to 0
at halftime.


After a number of offensive
mistakes, the Tigers still
managed to score a touchdown
when they opened the 3rd
quarter. Following a catch by
Tyson, Prince Alexander ran it
in for the two-point
conversion. At 40-0, the
Braves got the ball and
fumbled it, being recovered by
Dustin Hersey for the Tigers.
Handoffs to Khliel Jackson,
Corbin Elixson and Jackson
(which was fumbled and
recovered) left the Tigers at 4t
and 10. A pass to Chance
Bailey was incomplete,
making it Braves' ball. After
two attempted runs with no
gains, the Braves opted for a
pass which was intercepted by
Couch. and it is Braves ball.
The Braves ran up the middle
twice but were unable to gain
any yards.
In the fourth quarter, Couch
intercepts the ball from the
Braves, but ends up punting
back. Bailey makes a sack,
then another pass is intercepted
by Couch. A handoff to
Daquin Edwards results in a
run in for the final Tigers
touchdown of the game
followed by a failed
conversion, making the final
score 46-0.

All guardians have to do is
complete an interview with a
guardian staff member, attend
30 hours of pre-service
training, be at least 21 years
old and pass a criminal
background check.
If interested in becoming a
guardian, there is a printable

DST
Continued from p. 1A
consistent pattern across the
country.
The Uniform Time Act of
1966 created DST to begin on
the last Sunday of April and to
end on the last Sunday of
October. The law does not
require that everyone observe
DST, but if observing DST, it
must be done uniformly. Any
area that wanted to be exempt
from DST could do so by
passing a local ordinance. DST
is not observed in Hawaii,
Amnerican Samoa, Guam,
Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands
and the state of Arizona (with
the exception of the Navajo
Indian Reservation).
Following the 1973 Arab Oil
Embargo, Congress put most
of the nation on extended.
Daylight Saving Time in hopes
.of saving additional energy. In
1974, DST lasted lOn months
and in 1975, it lasted for eight
months, rather than the normal
six months' which was being
observed (May to October).
This experiment worked, but
Congress did not continue it in
1975 because of opposition,
mostly from farming.states.
The U.S. Department of
Transportation studied the
results of the experiment and
concluded the following:
* Daylight Saving Time
saves energy. Based on
consumption figures for
1974 and L975, the DOT
stated that DST in March
and April saved the
equivalent in energy of
10,000 barrels of oil each
day a total of 600,000
barrels in each of those
two years.
* DST saves lives and
prevents traffic injuries.


WAP
Continued from p. 1A
families with children and
households with high energy
burdens.
The program makes a
difference in the lives of many
Floridians by preparing and/or
replacing inefficient heating
and cooling units, insulating
attics, walls and floors,
caulking and sealing cracks
and holes, and making other
energy efficiency
improvements to residents'
homes.


The earlier DST allowed
more people to travel
home from work and
school in daylight, which
is much safer than
darkness.
DST prevents crime.
Because people get home
from work and school and
complete more errands
and chores in daylight,
DST seems to reduce
exposure to various
crimes, which are more
common in darkness than
in light.
* An estimated 50 lives
were saved and about
2,000 injuries were
prevented in March and
April of the study years.
.The department also
estimated that $28 million
was saved in traffic
accident costs..
* .The entire country's.
electricity usage was cut
by about one percent each
day with DLT.
Newer studies, however;
reportedly challenge the earlier
claims of safety and crime
prevention under DST. Further
research is likely warranted:
The DST law was amended
in 1986 when President
Reagan signed Public Law 99-
359.
It changed DST from the last
Sunday to the first Sunday in
April. No change was made to
the ending date of the last
Sunday in October._This--was
done specifically-to conserve
energy during the month of
April. Adding the entire month
of April is estimated to save
nationwide about 300,000
barrels of oil each year.
Since 1986, the U.S. has
observed DST from the first
Sunday in April through the
last Sunday in October. The.
provisions of the new bill call
for DST to begin three weeks


Home weatherization
benefits communities by
stabilizing neighborhoods,
eliminating carbon emissions,
reducing.the dependence on
foreign oil, stimulating local
economies through the
purchase of goods and services
and creatingjibbs.
WAP funding is deriveu
from annual appropriations
from Congress. Each year,
Senate and House Interior
Appropriations committees
decide how much will be
allocated.
Low-income families will


earlier on the second Sunday
in March and end on the first
Sunday in November.
One of the biggest reasons
clocks are changed in
observance of DST is that it
saves energy. Energy use and
the demand for electricity for
lighting our homes is directly
connected to when we go to
bed and when we get up.
In the average home, 25
percent of all the electricity we
use is for lighting and small
appliances, such as TVs, VCRs
and stereos. A good percentage
of energy consumed by
lighting and appliances occurs
in the evening when families
are home. By moving the clock
ahead one hour, we can cut the
ainount of electricity we
consume each day.
We also use less electricity
because we are home fewer
hours during the longer days of
spring and summer. Most'
people plan outdoor activities
in the extra daylight hours.
A poll done by the U.S.
Department of Transportation
indicated that Americans like
DST because there is more
light in the evenings and they
can do more in the evenings.
While the amounts of energy
saved per household is small,
when added up on a whole, it
can be very large:
In the winter, the afternoon
DST advantage is offset by the
-_nornings...need for- more---
lighting. In spring and fall, the
advantage is less than one
hour.
DST saves energy for
lighting in all seasons of the
year except for the four darkest
.months of the year: November,
SDecember, January and
February, when the afternoon
advantage is offset by the need
for lighting because of late
sunrise.


save an average of $358 in
reduced first-year energy costs,

i Weatherization creates non-
energy benefits as well as
benefits: increased property
value, reduced incidence of
fire, reduced arrearages,
improved health and safety
conditions, increased comfort
for the occupants, reduction in
homelessness and mobility,

National Guard company

receives heroes' welcome


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer
A special welcome home
ceremony was held at Camp
Blanding on Oct. 22 for the 17
members of the Florida
National Guard 221st
Explosives Ordnance Disposal
(EOD) Company.
The soldiers' families and
friends were on hand to
welcome their heroes.
The company, which had
been deployed in Iraq for a
year, was charged with the
daunting responsibility of
iderltifying and destroying
roadside improvised explosive
devices (IEDs), before they
could wreak their murderous
toll on coalition forces.
As part of the ceremony
several notables, including Ray
Quinn, director of executive
services for the Department of
Military and representatives of
the offices of Senators Bill
Nelson and Mel Martinez gave
speeches thanking the soldiers
for their courageous duty.
Keystone Heights Mayor
Mary Lou Hildreth, who was
present a year ago when the
company left for Iraq, was
there to welcome them home
and delivered a speech
expressing gratitude for the
servicemen's sacrifice: and
devotion to our protection and
that of our feedoms.
After Camp Blanding
Commissioner Benny Nelson
spoke, the last speaker was the
captain of the company, Gene
Redding who emphasized the
humility and selfless duty of
each company member.
After mentioning the
thousands of pounds of IEDs
they had eradicated, Redding
said, I'm gonna brag on them
because they're not the kind to
brag about themselves."
Sergeant First Class Michael
Morgan of Jacksonville, who
held his wife, Lisa closely,
said that he had served in Iraq
before during Operation Desert
Storm in 1991.
He said going back to Iraq
'was a sort of horiecoming he
could have done without.
"I was with the Marines the
first time around and I only
wished we could have finished
the job then," Morgan said.
He said he really didn't

surface only for air.
Leatherbacks are capable of
diving up to a mile deep in
search of food.
-Though they cannot duck
them into their.shells like other
turtles, loggerheads have
enormous heads to power
their massive jaws so they can
eat their natural prey, lobsters,
crabs, clams, scallops and
other crustaceans.
-Of 1,000 sea turtles that
hatch, only one will survive
to adulthood (30 years),
because they are natural prey
to many creatures including
birds, raccoons, crabs and
sharks.
-The turtle's shell is much
more than just for
protection- it is basically
their rib structure located on
the outside, and through it runs
their spinal cords.
In all the world, the beaches
of the state of Florida are the
major nesting places of turtles
of all kinds.

Railroad important to local history


The Starke post office was established
in November 1857 in a small community
of nondescript buildings adjacent to
a 200-foot-wide strip of land owned
by the Florida Railroad Company. The
railroad was already under construction,
beginning in Fernandina two years earlier
and completed through Baldwin. Railroad
stations would be established at Trail.
Ridge and Waldo, but not in the new
community of Starke. Research did not
reveal a reason for a community at the site
since there seems to have been nothing to
offer other than stands of virgin yellow
pine and a scattering of settlers.
The 1860 census counted 138 people
in the community two years after the
post office was opened. Among early
settlers was Drury Reddish, the founding
father of the local Reddish family who
was awarded 40 acres of land for serving
in the First Seminole War. The land
was located on the present site of the
Community State Bank and joined the
railroad right of way.
Family members relate that Reddish
sold the land and relocated to the Bayless
Highway area because the trains would
frighten his livestock, especially his
horses.
In one respect Reddish was correct.
Prior to 1948 (100 years later), livestock
owners enjoyed an' open range. Fields
were fenced for crop growing, domestic
animals ran free. Cattle, more than other
animals, gathered on the rail bed because
it was drained and dry and were often
killed by passing trains. The animal owner
could file a claim and the railroad would
reimburse him. A_sayjng among- railroad
-- offici~l-swas, "Nothing improves a cow
like crossing it with a train," indicating
that farmers often made exorbitant claims
for animals killed on the tracks.
It turns out that the rail line has aih
interesting beginning and dates back much
further than I knew about. I assumed the
tracks were laid about 1900'or 4901, the
years in which the Atlantic Coast Line
track that'irns from Jacksonville to St.
Petersburg was completed.
It may come as a surprise, but a
Florida map shows a line drawn between
Fernandina and Cedar Key is a straight-
line that passes through Starke, and that
is the route of the Florida Railroad built
between 1855 and 1861. Therein lies a.
story.
David Levy was born on St. Thomas
Island in the West Indies into a wealthy
Moroccan Jewish family in 1810. He
attended a private school in Norfolk,
Va., and worked on a family-owned
plantation after graduation. He studied.
law in St, Augustine and was admitted to
the Florida Bar in 1836, but never worked
as an attorney. He was well educated
with an outgoing personality that brought
him to the attention of the politicians
of that era and brought appointments to
important political positions.
He changed his name from Levy to
Yulee (taking the name David Levy
Yulee), became actively engaged in
attaining statehood for Florida and ran for
one of the two senate seats when Florida
was admitted to the Union in .1845. He
-was elected arid became the first Jew to
serve in the 'U.S. Senate. 'His bid for a
second term failed but he ran again in
1855 and won a second nonconsecutive


Attendance

policy hurts

student's

Education -
Dear Editor:
I have become, quite frankly,
upset with our school system's
attendance policy. I understand
that we are now penalizing
,students' grades on the days
they are not attending class.
This could lead to lowering the
students' grades drastically,
even to failure in one or all
classes.
A student that achieves an A
or a B in a class, yet misses
five days .of class with no
excuses for the missed days,
will lower the earned grade to
a C. Continuing to miss class
will lead to an even lower
grade. This, to me, is puzzling;
why it is that we settled on the
lowering of a grade to be the
most effective punishment for
missing class? Have we over-
looked that colleges look at a
student's grade, not so much as


term.
As early as 1837 Yulee envisioned a
railroad across Florida connecting the
Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean,
reducing shipping distance between New
Orleans and Atlantic ports, and enabling
ship owners to evade the dangerous
Florida Straits, aside from shortening the
distance. Yulee first envisioned the -rail
line to be state owned and operated, a
.position he would later abandon.
During his first senate term Yulee
decided to go it alone in building his
dream railroad. In 1853, he chartered
the Florida Railroad, with himself as
president, and obtained government
grants of land 200 feet wide for.right of
way and alternate sections of land 6 miles
wide on both sides. Construction began
on the northern terminus at Fernandina
in 1855, taking a year to build the first
10 miles. Two years later, the track had
reached Baldwin. The first train arrived
in Cedar Key March 1, 1861.
The railroad was 155.5 miles long and
required about 12 hours for the trip. The
fare was $11. Stations along the route were
Baldwin, Trail Ridge, Waldo, Gainesville,
Archer, and Otter Creek. Trail Ridge has
disappeared as a community and Starke,
which was nonexistent, has developed
into a thriving small city.
The trains no longer stop in Starke,
but in its heyday, it was an important
shipping point. During the decades of
the 1930s and 1940s, strawberries were
king, and growers shipped six to eight
car boxes of berries from Starke daily
during the season. The era ended when
the industry moved to Plant City for
the earlier warm weather and increased
supply of farm labor. .
Starke's SAL- depot saw tremendous
activity between 1940 and 1944 in troop
Movement in and out of Camp Blanding.
(I shipped out from Starke Jan. 19, 1941,
after passing through Camp Blanding.)
Sometime during theqwar, a sppr was aid,
from Starke into Blanding, ending the
movement of troops bytruck into town.
In years gone by we heard the steam
whistles of trains in the late hours of the
night, but now we hear the electric horns,
a different sound that no longer projects
the romance of railroading.
In the 150 years since the Starke post
office opened its doors, Starke has grown,
but growth came slowly for the first 80
years, competing for population with
Lake Butler. Two factors contributed
to Starke's growth, beginning with the
construction of Camp Blanding in 1940
and its location on a major highway. All
towns on major highways don't flourish,
but Starke seems to be positioned well to
take advantage of traffic.
There are no passenger trains running
through Starke and the freight trains
only slow slightly as they rumble across
the several city street crossings. We are
often impatient while waiting for long
trains to pass, but "normally we are
inconvenienced for about two minutes.
On occasion a train will block downtown
crossings for longer periods' and that
constitutes a problem for emergency
vehicles, but otherwise we largely ignore
the railroad and trains.

Telegraph Editorialist


their attendance when
considering accepting the
student into the school? When
did we forget that it is an
earned grade that the student is
striving for?-- F6cusing' on
trying to achieve an average
grade of an 89, only to have it
decreased to a 69 because of
six missed days of school
seems slightly harsh.
I'd like to address the staffs -
attendance. 'As a former
employee of the county
(substitute teacher), I have
witnessed first hand that
teachers seem to be struggling
with attendance as well. In
addition, we seem to be in a
shortage of substitute teachers.
As a former student, I know all
too well that when a substitute
is present, the education in the
class is put on hold. Substitutes
are, for lack of a better word,
just babysitters. They offer
very little to the progression in
the classroom. The teacher's
absence can often be lengthy,
leading up to three to four days
in a row. Does a teacher get
punished with the loweirrig of


his or her pay? In my opinion,
the student's education is what
suffers by a licensed teacher
being absent. Something must
be done.
What exactly are we
teaching these students with
this punishment? Are there no
other options to consider?
Have we failed to look at how
this affects the future of the
student? In my opinion, we are
interfering with a child's
educational record by allowing
this rule to continue. I
encourage the school board to
regroup and to find a more
fitting punishment.
Also, I encourage parents to
get upset with this issue and to
question it. I feel like we
should hold a school bbard
meeting to come up with a
more effective, less damaging
solution. If nothing is done, we
will put our high school
students at a disadvantage in
the competitive field of
applying to the best colleges.
Again, something has to be
done.

Thank you for

successful

benefit
Dear Editor:
We would like to extend our
deepest thanks to all who made
the Tammy Gill and kids
benefit possible and so
successful. It reminds us all of
why we love our small
communities here in North
Central Florida because when
neighbor is in need, we all
stand up.
Whether you were a
business giving food, raffle
items, supplies, or the ladies
and gentlemen who took it on
the road in the poker run, or
the many volunteers who
trotted out in the early hours
on Oct. 6 and then again on the
rain dated Oct. 13 to help with
setting up, cooking or
whatever needed to be done
and to the women who donated
desserts.
If it had not been for all of
you, Tammy and her children,
would not have their house
payment, two car._payments,
electric and other bills paid to
date. Thank you all again.

Commissioners

lied about dirt

road funds
Dear Editor:
The contents of this letter
affect not only every taxpayer
in Bradford County, but
specifically every one who
lives on a dirt road. Without
fail, every county commission
meeting that I have ever
attended, there has been
someone to appear, requesting
that the commission do
something about the condition
of the dirt road that they live
on.
They have heard time and
time again excuse after excuse
about why their dirt road
couldn't be repaired or graded
or resurfaced. These folks as
well as I were convinced that
there just was not money
available. I have, at times, with
a bit of sarcasm joked about
those people who lived on
those dirt roads, knowing the
roads were dirt when they
moved on it. To a point I offer
some of those people an
apology .
When you were told that
money was not available, you
were lied to. All the money
'available was not being used.
If you attended- the county


commission meeting Thursday,
Oct. 18, you would have heard
that about one-half million
dollars is available for roads
that John Cooper and John
Wayne Hersey want to spend
on buying land to use as an
industrial park or something
else.
This issue has not been
decided on yet. It has been put
on the agenda for a special
meeting Monday, Nov. 5, at
5:30 p.m. Keep in mind that
this will be the second meeting
of the commission that same
day. If you have a residence on
a dirt road and are tired of the
lies about the lack of funds for
roads attend this meeting.
The Telegraph will have to
announce this special meeting.
If it' is not announced in a
paper two weeks in advance in
this paper or one that has
normal circulation in this area
then it will be an illegal
meeting.

(Editor's note: The land
purchase will be on the agenda
of the board's morning meeting
at 9:30 a.m. The 5:30 p.m.
meeting is for the continuation
of a zoning hearing.)


The bible

doesn't

prohibit all

alcohol use
Dear Editor:
I have read with some
interest about the ongoing
bronhaha over the Sunday sale
of alcoholic beverages in
Starke. The fact is that the
Bible does not prohibit the
reasonable use of alcoholic
beverages. I believe that if God
wanted to do that He would
have done it as emphatically as
he prohibited adultery,
homosexual activity, abortion
and other prohibitions. He
does condemn drunkenness
and allows people the freedom
of choice. I believe He expects
then to-act wisely. The law is
out of step with the teachings
of the bible, the world
Christian community and in
fact,with nearly 100 percent of
the communities across the
extremely conservative
Southern "Bible Belt." The law
accomplishes nothing except
to prevent major restaurants
frodnflocating here.
'suppose if the strong willed
and vocal opponents to getting
rid of this law had the power
and were at a wedding where
wine was being served, they
would probably turn the wine
to water, which is quite the
opposite of what the gentleman
from Galilee did.
I can think of something a
lot more important for these
strong-willed and vocal
Christians to do. They can
preach from the pulpit and in
the streets that this country is
being transformed into a
secular progressive society.
They can spread the word in
their churches that the anti-
Christian and anti-God people
have worked their way to the
top of the political ladder and
are winning. We can no longer
pray as we wish. We're not
supposed to say Merry
Christmas. We can't even
openly celebrate the legal
holiday of Christmas, let alone
the season. We can't allow
prayer at school or at a school
function, and many school
districts throughout the nation
keep the children from saying
the Pledge of Allegiance to our
flag because the phrase "under
God" is part of that pledge. Oft


course there is much more and
most of you can come up with
Many examples.
It is time that the clergymen
of all God fearing faiths preach
the dangers that this country
faces if we allow the secular
progressive movement to
continue to grow. The
apathetic American citizen
must become aware of the
facts and get angry enough to
do something about it if we are
to turn the tide. And turn the
tide we must, or we will
become a citizenry being
controlled by our government
instead of a citizenry in control
of our government.
The Constitution of the
United States does not dictate
that there shall be a separation
of church and state. It only
states that our governing body
may not establish, a national
religion. While I-do believe
that the church should not
become a major political force
in all matters, it stands to
reason that it has a place in
protecting our religious
freedom.
The world' is in a fierce
struggle to keep Islamic
fascists from taking over the
world. The radicals among the
Muslim community fully
intend to become the rulers of
the world and enslave or kill
all of the Christians and Jews
that they can get their hands
on. They have said so and they
mean it: They teach their
children to hate all Christians
and Jews while we seem to be
training ours to be "politically
correct." These radicals have
in the last 20 years, brought
back to life the war that has
been going on ever since the
time of the Exodus. If we let
them win we are doomed.

PUT AN INSIDER TO WORK!


Home ownership has been
called The, American Dream.
And yet, while 7 out of 10
Americans are either directly
impacted by a disability, or
know someone who is, only 7
percent of all adults with dis-
abilities are homeowners.
What's wrong with this picture?
Fortunately, homeownership
is beginning to grow among
this segment of our population,
encouraged by the development
of special programs aimed at
helping those with disabilities
to finance a home. And why
not? These families have the
same qualifications and dreams
as anyone else.
It's just that their needs are
different, and a trusted real
estate professional can be an
excellent resource in finding a
home in a community that
offers the features and benefits


most suited to those needs.
"Location, location, location"
becomes even more critical
when you factor in the need for
proximity to special-education
schools, medical facilities,
accessible transportation and
recreational activities.
When facing relocation to a
new area, it can be overwhelm-
ing for almost anyone to dis-
cover information about these
resources, but it's an especially
challenging search for the dis-
abled and their families.
Because of their involvement in
the local community, active real
estate agents have an insider's
knowledge of the resources and
support available for families
with special needs. When
faced with the excitement and
anxiety of such a move, turn to
an experienced professional for
assistance.

Found bracelet brings comfort to widow after 60 years


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer
When James Filippi of
Starke decided to take a ride
over to Kingsley Lake just to
check out the area, little did he
know that he would set in
motion a series of events that
ultimately would prove a
spiritual tonic to 93-year-old
widow Beverly Blackshear.
In his off time, *Filippi said
he enjoys diving in local lakes
with his underwater metal
detector.
Filippi, a guard at Lawtey
Correctional Institution,
spotted Blackshear at a
cemetery tending to the
flowers at the graves of her
husband, James, and her son,
also named James, who was
killed at the age of 19 in
Vietnam. The latter was highly
decorated during his brief stay
in' Vietnam, having received
many medals including the
Silver Star.
"What better way to find out
about an area and its history
than to talk to a senior citizen,"
said Filippi.
He struck up a conversation
with Blackshear, who has lived
in the same house on Kirigsley
Lake for 83 years after her
family moved there from
Vermont.
After forming a fast
friendship, Blackshear invited
Filippi to dive anytime he
wanted to from her dock,
which is named "Cady's


Landing" after her
grandmother.
Filippi has been very
fortunate in his underwater
treasure hunting, finding
expensive gold and silver
jewelry, a diamond ring, 19th
century coins and other
valuable artifacts, but what he
found recently, though of
relatively little monetary
worth, had priceless value to
Blackshear. On that day, his
metal detector indicated the
presence of something buried
beneath the sand on the lake
floor, not very far from
Blackshear's dock.
With his net, Filippi scooped
out a sterling silver bracelet
that was engraved with the
initials JMB. Also on the
bracelet were etched the words
Africa, Sicily, Italy, France
and Germany.
Initially, Filippi didn't give
the bracelet a second thought,
as it was like many he had
found on the other side of the
lake near Camp Blanding.
They belonged to many
soldiers who were stationed
there prior to being shipped
overseas. They apparently had
been lost while the soldiers
took a refreshing dip in the
lake.
It was only later while
talking to Blackshear's son,
Tommy, that he learned that
Tommy's late father's name
was James Melvin
Blackshear-JMB. Tommy


also informed Filippi that his
father had served in World
War II in those countries that
were engraved on the bracelet.
Realizing exactly what he
had found, he rushed the
bracelet to Blackshear.
Indeed, Blackshear
confirmed that her husband
had served in the European
theater for two and a half years
and in the very countries'
engraved on the bracelet.
Although she said her
husband never mentioned the
bracelet to her and she had no
memory of him wearing it, she
believes that he lost it while
swimming off Cady's Landing
in 1946, the year he returned
from the war. Sixty
years-and 30 years after her
husband's death in 1977-it
was found.
Filippi and Blackshear
speculated on the meaning of
such occurrences, in light of
the fact that they both
subscribe to the idea that there
are no accidents or
coincidences. Particularly
significant to them was the fact
that three of the
principles-Blackshear's late
son, husband and Filippi
himself-shared the first name
of James.


James Filippi (right) shows off the bracelet he found
that belonged to James Blackshear, the late
husband of Beverly Blackshear (left).


Also, the fact that Filippi
first saw Blackshear when she
was tending to the graves of
her son and husband offered
ground for speculation on the
nature of coincidence versus
destiny.
There was one thing that
Blackshear was sure of,
however.
"When I saw the bracelet I
felt a joy come over me," said
Blackshear. "It was like I had
gotten a part of my husband
back in a way-and James Jr.
too."

SS expedites

disability

applications

for 'wounded

warriors'
Men and women serving in
the U.S. military who become
disabled while on active duty
are receiving "expedited
processing" of disability
claims from Social Security.
The expedited process is for
military service members who
we're disabled on or after Oct.
1, 2001, regardless of where
the disability occurs. People in
the military can apply for and
receive benefits even while
receiving military pay.
To make things easier for
service men and women,
Social Security has developed
an easily accessible Web site
all about benefits for wounded
warriors. Whether you're
stateside or deployed abroad,
just visit www.socialsecurity.
gov/woundedwarriors. The
Web site has everything you
need to know about Social
Security and military
service-including a link to
apply for disability benefits
online.
As Social Security
Commissioner Michael Astrue
said, "I want to assure the
-brave men and women of our
armed forces and their families
that they will not have to wait
for these needed benefits.
Expedited processing is just
one way Social Security can
show our military personnel
how much we appreciate their
service in defense of our
freedom."
Once the application for
Social Security disability
benefits is taken, it is uniquely
identified as being from a U.S.
military service member, and it
is expedited through all phases
of processing, both in Social
Security and the state
Disability Determination
Service, where the actual
medical determination of
disability is made.
Disabled military personnel
may apply for disability
benefits at any time while in
active military status, or after
discharge, whether they're still
hospitalized, in a rehabilitation
program or undergoing out-
patient treatment in a military
or civilian medical facility.
It is important to understand
that the definition of disability
for Social Security is different

Also, Social Security does

The Environmental Quality
Incentives Program, also
known as EQIP, is a key
program under the 2002 Farm
Bill that provides federal cost-
share funds to working farms
and ranches for conservation
improvements. The 2008 EQIP
application period will remain
open until Nov. 13.
EQIP provides incentive
payments and cost-share funds
to private agricultural and
livestock producers to
implement conservation


practices. It promotes
agricultural production and
environmental quality as
compatible goals. Like all
NRCS programs, participation
is voluntary.
It is extremely important for
producers to note that the
application deadline for the
2008 Program Year is Nov. 13.
The early deadline is a
continuing effort to improve
the funding process. The
accelerated program cut-off
date will allow producers time
to complete practices during
the first years of their
contracts. The earlier
application deadline date will
also help accommodate field
work in preparation for fall


projects.
As with all NRCS programs,
EQIP is a voluntary-program
that is intended to yield high
quality, productive soils; clean
and abundant water; healthy
plant and animal communities;
clean air; an adequate energy
supply; and working farms and
ranchlands.

Gilete finds what he's looking for -- lt-


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Something was missing in
Dr. Jorge Gilete's life.
Sure, he was providing care
within the Florida Department
of Corrections, but he felt he
wasn't doing all he wanted
to-or could-do
Gilete has found what he
was looking for with the
Florida Department of Health,
working at the clinics in both
Bradford and Union counties.
"I love it," said Gilete, who
in his seventh week with the
Department of Health. "The
experience has been
outstanding. The patients, the
staff, the administrator, the-
facilities-I love them."
Gilete worked for the
Department of Corrections for
two years, but said he sensed
he was lacking something-the
sense of taking care of entire
families. Whether it be young
children, adolescents or adults
of any age, Gilete wants to
interact with all members of a
family, which is what he said
his current position allows him
to do.
"That's what I really like,"
he said. "I love the interaction
with everybody. I'm really
passionate about serving the
community. That's what I was
looking forward to doing since
the beginning, when I started
in the medical field."
The beginning took place in
Gilete's home of Cuba. He
remembered being interested
in science and new
developments in research at a
young age.


"In middle school, I used to
go to seminars on genetics,"
Gilete said.
Family also played a part in
Gilete's interest. A couple of.
relatives worked in the medical
field, including an aunt who
worked at a cancer center. He
visited that center quite a bit
during the ages of 10-13. The
compassionate care the
patients received there made
quite an impression on him.
"I felt like it was kind of
something special," Gilete
said. "I liked it. I think that's
what really drove me-the
human side of it first, then the
technology and scientific part."
Gilete never lost his interest
in genetics. -- Tirst thought
about becoming a geneticist,
but that would not include the
hands-on, compassionate care
he witnessed at the cancer
center.
"I realized I was not going
to be able to be in touch with
patients and doing the other
part I really liked," Gilete said.
"I chose to go into the
community-type of medical
care."
Gilete began medical school
in Cuba, but later moved to the
United States. He spent
approximately six months in
Miami before moving to San
Juan, Puerto Rico, and then
later moving to Guadalajara,
Mexico. He finished medical
school in Gaudalajara, then
went back to San Juan for an
internship.
It was a hectic time, Gilete
admits. He was learning the
English language and


immersed in a new culture
while trying to keep up with
his medical school studies.
However, he said he did not
consider it a difficult time. He
was young and energetic, he
said, and simply did what he
had to do to take the next step
in his life.
"I managed to get through it
successfully," Gilete said.
His work in Puerto Rico was
similar to what he's doing
now, Gilete said. He provided
care in small-town clinics,
seeing patients with
socioeconomic backgrounds
similar to the patients he sees
now.
Gilete spent five years
working in Puerto Rico before
moving to-Florida-and taking a


job with the Department of
Corrections in 2005. That
position showed Gilete that
providing care in small-toen
clinics is what he reallI
wanted to do.
"Basically, I feel like I'm
back in my field again." he
said.
There are challenges that
come with his current position.
mainly trying to pro ide
service within budgetary
limitations.
"Fortunately for us here. '%e
have a few programs \% here \ e
can help people out." Gilete
said. "That's what I really love
about the- Department of
Health. Nobody goes home
with empty hands."


Dr. Jorge Gilete is a new addition to the health
departments in Bradford and Union counties.

Story, Taylor lead Indians' rout of district's Ribault


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer
One might say that if there
was a turning point in the
Keystone -Heights football
team's game against District 3-
2A opponent Ribault on Oct.
19, it was probably the
opening whistle.
It was a case of total
domination on both sides of
the ball in the Indians' 55-8
shellacking of the host
Trojans.
Running backs Matt Story
and Greg Taylor each scored
three touchdowns while
racking up totals of 213 and
136 rushing yards,
respectively. Keystone (5-2, 3-
2 in District 3) posted 474
offensive yards compared to
Ribault's 170.
The woes for Ribault (3-4,
2-3) began early as the Trojans
coughed up the ball on their
first two possessions, first on
an interception by defensive
back Jacob Van Wagner and
then on a lateral pass that went
awry.
This second turnover set the
Indians up on Ribault's 25.
Predictably, the calls went to
Story and Taylor, who took
turns advancing the ball
toward the goal line, with
Story carrying it in the last 5
yards at the 7:03 mark of the
first quarter for a 7-0 lead.


Seemingly snake bit, the
Trojans fumbled again on the
next possession, with the ball
being recovered by Keystone
defensive back Joel Morgan.
It was d6ej vu all over again.
Keystone had the ball at the
Ribault 25 again, and the
Story-Taylor combo moved it
again to the 5, where this time
Taylor did the honors with
6:16 remaining in the first
quarter for a 14-0 lead.
"We know we can move the
ball on the ground behind Greg
and Matt," Keystone head
coach Chuck Dickinson said.
"We just look to see if anyone


can stop us."
-On the next series, the
Trojans once again gave the
ball away as quarterback
Antonio McRae tossed up a
wounded duck of a pass while
under heavy pressure, which
was bagged by Keystone
defensive back Dillon Van
Wagner.
Starting on their own 45, the
Indians alternated handoffs to
Story and Taylor, who again
marched with impunity to the
Ribault end zone, with Taylor
carrying it in from the 9,
advancing Keystone's lead to
21-0 with the game still in the

Ribault.




first quarter.
After Ribault turned the ball
over on downs on Keystone's
14, the Indians drove 86i yards
behind Story and Taylor down
to the Ribault 36. Taylor took
a handoff from there and found
clear sailing into the end zone
at the 8:54 mark of the second
quarter, making the scoro 28-0,
which was how it stood at the
half.
If Dickinson was concerned
his team might let up with such
a large lead, the Indians'
opening drive of the second
half would have eased his
mind.


Starting at their own 37, the
Indians were not worried about
going to the well once too
often, as once again Story and
Taylor were unleashed. This
time, though, it was mostly
Story who gained 54 yards on
three carries before carrying
the ball in from the 2 with 8:10
left in the third quarter, putting
Keystone up by 35-0.
Ribault lost the ball on the
next sequence as they flubbed
another lateral pass. The
Indians recovered it on their
opponent's 28.
Story and Taylor took turns
moving the ball to the 4, where
this time the call went to
Marcel Robinson, who toted
the ball in at the 5:56 mark of
the third quarter, increasing


Keystone's lopsided lead to
42-0.
After forcing the hapless
Trojans to go three-and-out,
Keystone went to work again
with Story and Taylor carrying
the ball. Story posted his third
touchdown on an 18-yard dash
for a 48-0 lead late in the third
quarter.
The Indians quickly took
over on downs on the next
series and began a drive on the
Ribault 40. Giving Taylor and
Story a well-deserved breather,
Dickinson put in Thomas
Ricketts at quarterback and
running back Garrett
Strickland. Strickland carried
the ball in from the 23 with

Lake Butler Middle School wins conference football title


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Josh Tyson ran for almost
200 yards and scored four
touchdowns, the last of which
gave the Lake Butler Middle
School football team a 36-28
win over Williston in the
Suwannee Middle School
Athletic Conference
championship game on Oct. 23
in Lake Butler.
Tyson zig-zagged through
defenders all night long in
racking up 191 yards on 16
carries. He scored on runs of 9,
25 and 59 yards, while also
scoring on a 45-yard reception.
"He is amazing," Lake
Butler .head coach Chris
Mecusker said. "He's fun to
watch."
Despite Tyson's efforts, the
Tigers found themselves tied at
28-all after Williston Brandon
Preston scored on. a 19-yard
run with 2:14 remaining in the
game.
The Tigers needed to a big
play to move them down the
field. They got j when
Shawntavious Holland made a
diving catch of an Austin
Harden pass at the Williston 9-
tard line, which was good for
S28-yard gain.
"We caught them off guard,"
decusker said of the play call.
Tyson took the ball into the
end zone from there and also
had a successful run on the

two-point conversion, putting
the Tigers back on top with
just 42 seconds left on the
clock.
The win gave the Tigers (6-
0) their second straight
conference championship and
brought the team's slogan to
fruition.
"Our slogan all year has
been, 'Do your job,'"
Mecusker said. "The boys did
their job."
Williston's Preston seemed
intent on grabbing the spotlight
from Tyson as he single-


handedly kept the Devils in the
game, accounting for all of
-their scores.
Preston's first came on a 99-
yard run that put Williston up
6-0 in the first quarter, but the
Tigers came right back when
Tyson scored on a 50-yard
reception with 1:13 remaining
in the opening quarter.
Hdrden's run on the two-point
conversion put Lake Butler up
8-6.
Four plays later, the Devils
were back on top, showing the


Williston did not score again
in the half as Lake Butler made
several big plays defensively.
Albert Brand had a tackle for a
loss and a fumble recovery,
while Tyson and Prince
Alexander each had an
interception.
The Devils would capitalize
after recovering a Lake Butler
fumble to open the second
half. That led to Preston's 60-
yard touchdown run that put
Williston up 20-16.
Lake Butler answered,
moving downfield on runs by
Tyson and Harden, with
Demetrius Jones also gaining a
first down with an 11-yard
reception. Caleb Dukes'plowed
into the end zone on fourth-
and-goal from the 1 to put the


Tigers up 22-20.
The lead increased to 28-20
when Tyson scored on a 25-
yard run. He had three runs for
49 yards on the drive.
.Preston and the Devils had
3:20 to work with, but they did
not need much time. Preston
ripped off a 26-yard run to the
Lake Butler 28 before
eventually scoring from 19
yards out. A successful pass on
the conversion tied the score at
28-all.
That did not leave them
much time, but the Tigers did
their job, as their slogan says,
allowing them to walk off the
field with the trophy.
"It was a great game,"
Mecusker said.


Tigers they, too, could score
through the air. Preston's 25-
yard touchdown reception put
Williston up by six after
Preston added the successful
conversion.
Four plays would seem like
a lengthy drive in this game as
the Tigers came back and
scored on one play from
scrimmage. That occurred on a
59-yard run by Tyson at the
6:46 mark of the second
quarter. Harden's run on the
conversion was good to put his
team up 16-14.

Every player was able to see

Verunac said he looks
forward to a good season in
2008. The team loses just four
eighth-graders.
"I think we're going to have


a tremendous team next year,"
Verunac said.
It may have been a
disappointment to the players
to lose to Williston in the
championship match for the
second year in a row, but
Verunac could not be any
more proud of the players'
efforts. His attire on Oct. 22
attested to that fact. Verunac,


an Ohio State fan, had made a
promise to the team-and to
Johnson, in particular-that he
would don orange and blue if
the Hurricanes made it to the
championship match.
He kept his word, as he was
wearing a Gators T-shirt at
school.
"I just wanted to honor (the
players)," he said.

Hoard said it's a testament
to Mosley's work and
maturation that he's settling in
after sharing snaps in the
spring and then having to learn
a new offense following a
coaching change in the
summer.
"I'm very proud of him,"
Hoard said.

One of Mosley's favorite
targets against Yulee was
Covington, who caught four
passes for 88 yards.
Covington's impact, however,
was felt in just about every
facet of the game. Hoard
credited the senior with

Covington and

making a "zillion" tackles
from his linebacker position
and setting the tone on defense
with a first-quarter tackle that
dislodged Yulee running back
,Brett Davis from his helmet.
Covington later followed that
up by giving Bradford its first
touchdown on a 31-yard
touchdown pass to Jernard
Beard.
"He's a first-team all-state
player," Hoard said.
Bradford's offense
squandered a possible scoring
opportunity by fumbling on its
first possession of the game,
then followed that up by going
three-and-out.
The Tornadoes' third


Mosley was in the shotgun
formation resulted in a loss of
10 yards, forcing the
Tornadoes into fourth-and-22.
Bradford lined up to go for it,
with Covington taking the
handoff and lofting a perfect
pass to Beard in the corner of
the end zone to put the
Tornadoes up 6-0 at the 8:38
mark of the second quarter.
Yulee, which was held to
five first downs, put together
its best drive of the night
following the score. Justin
Miller had four straight carries
for 23 yards to help the
Hornets drive from their own.
44 to the Bradford'32. Miller's
fifth carry, however, was good
for just a yard after he was
brought down by Covington,
who was Bradford's leading
tackler. The Hornets
eventually turned the ball over
on downs after two straight
incompletions on third and
fourth downs.

Mosley had the Tornadoes
moving on their next drive
when he eluded a sack and
scampered instead for a gain of
16 yards. Covington later took
a screen pass arid turned it.into
an 18-yard gain to the Yulee
31.
Another Covington
reception moved the
Tornadoes'to the 10, which set
up Beard's second touchdown
reception of the game-this
time from Mosley--with 1:11
remaining in the first half.


Bradford added the last
score of the game at the 5:04
mark of the third quarter.
Robert Boswell had a 15-yard
run to the Yulee 36, which was
followed by, a touchdown pass
from Mosley to Covington.
The Tornadoes would chew
up almost the entire fourth
quarter with a 20-play drive
that featured four carries for 19

reception by Seth Upthegrove
and an 8-yard run by reserve

Tigers can't overcome bad start in loss to Blue Wave


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a battle to remain in
second place in District 4-2B,
but the Union County football
team had a couple of first-half
miscues that hurt its effort in a
24-14 loss to P.K. Yonge on
Oct. 19 in Lake Butler.
P.K. Yonge-after having to
drive just 48 yards for its first
score-took advantage of a
botched punt attempt and a
fumble near the goal line to go
up'21-0 in the first half.
The Tigers would go on to
hold the Blue Wave to a field
goal the rest of the way, but
they did not put their first
score on the board until seven
minutes remained in the game.
"They are not a better team,"
Union head coach Andrew
Zow told his team after the
game. "You just didn't come
outfighting."
The win puts P.K. Yonge (4-
3, 1-1 in District 4) in a tie for
second place in the district
with Trinity Catholic.
However, the Tigers (2-5, 1-2)
still have a chance at a
postseason berth. They need to
win their game against
Chiefland on Nov. 2 and have
P.K. Yonge lose to either
Chiefland or Newberry (or
both). as well as having
Newberry defeat Trinity
Catholic. That scenario-if
P.K. Yonge loses one of its
two remaining district
games-would create a three-
way tie for second place with
no team holding an advantage
over the other two. A shootout
would be played to determine
the runner-up behind


Newberry.
If P.K. Yonge were to lose
to both Chiefland and
Newberry, Newberry defeats
Trinity Catholic and Union
defeats Chiefland, Union
would be the district runner-up
by virtue of its earlier win over
Trinity.
The Blue Wave received a
couple of gifts from the Tigers
in building what proved to be
an insurmountable lead. After
going up 7-0, P.K. Yonge set
up for its second score at the
Union 19 after an errant snap
on a punt attempt resulted in a
loss of 15 yards for the Tigers.
Jarred Shannon's reception in
the corner of the end zone
from 18 yards out put his team
up by two touchdowns.
Union's defense made
several big plays in the first
half. Zeke Scaff-returning
from an injury--and Trey
Tucker combined on a tackle
on one drive that held P.K.
Yonge to a gain of 2 yards
before Vinson Wintons later
picked off a pass at his own 37
during the same drive.
The offense could do
nothing following the turnover,
but got another chance after
the defense forced the Blue
Wave to punt. The punt,
however, pinned the Tigers
inside their own 5-yard line. A
fumble resulted in a
touchdown by P.K. Yonge's
Kyle Bennett.
Union threatened to score
late in the first half with
possession of the ball at the
P.K. Yonge 6 and 13 seconds
left on the clock. The Tigers
came away empty-handed,


Sammy Simmons carries the ball into the end zone
on a two-point conversion attempt following the
Tigers' first touchdown against P.K. Yonge.


however.
The Tigers remained
aggressive defensively. Scaff
and Michael Chandler each
had tackles behind the line of
scrimmage. Scaff had a
quarterback sack, while Aaron
Dukes was able to drop Blue
Wave leading rusher Dre
Maddox for no gain on one
play.


Union was set up for its first
score following P.K. Yonge's
own miscue. Justin Hanson
recovered a muffed punt at the
Blue Wave 30. The Tigers
almost turned the ball back
over, but fortunately Daniel
Rengering fell on the loose
ball to allow his team to retain
possession. Lonnie Gosha later
found the end zone on a 33-


yard run with 6:08 left in the
game. Sammy Simmons' run
on the two-point conversion
made the score 24-8.
The Tigers had to scramble
on their next possession to
make something happen as
time was running out. They
were helped when Bryan
Holmes broke loose for a 68-
yard run down to the P.K.
Yonge 5-yard line before he
was knocked out of bounds.
Backup quarterback Alvin
Jernigan eventually scored on
a 1-yard run with 17 seconds
remaining to cap the scoring.
The ensuing onside kick
attempt by the Tigers was
unsuccessful.

Union travels to play 4-4 Dixie County


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Union County face a team
with an experienced offense
when it travels to Cross City to
play Class 2A Dixie County on
Friday, Oct. 26, at 7:30 p.m.
The Bears return 10 starters-
on offense, including its entire
offensive line, which blocks
the way for standout running
back Rodney Scott. Scott, a


junior, has already surpassed
the 1,000-yard mark,
averaging 204 yards per game
in the Bears' first six games
this season.
Scott's success, however,
hasn't prevented an up-and-
down season. Dixie fell to 4-4
after its 28-24 loss to Taylor
County lastweek.
Some of\the Bears' stats,
like their record, were even


through their first six games
(stats were unavailable for
their last two games). They
were scoring an average of 24
points a game and allowing 23,
gaining an average of 295
yards a game and allowing
243, and committing 23
turnovers while forcing 20.
The Bears have put together
consecutive wins only once-
when they defeated Williston
30-20 on Sept. 21 and then
defeated Jefferson County 47-
6 on Sept. 28. In those games,
Scott rushed for a total of 571
yards and eight touchdowns
Even in the team's ne'
game-a 58-22 loss to Fort


White-Scott gained almost
300 yards and scored three
touchdowns.
Dixie and Union have
played two common opponents
this season in Hamilton
County and Newberry. The
Bears defeated Hamilton 34724
and lost 21-14 to Newberry.
Union defeated Hamilton 20-
14 and lost 46-0 to Newberry.
The Bears, who also return
six starters--all seniors-on
defense, went 8-3 last year.
Union and Dixie used to be
in the same classification and
district. The last, time .they
pl.'. ed each other was in 2004:
That was a 20-8 Tigers win.
