The Big Red Christmas Drive: how it all began


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Just before Christmas seven
years.ago, a couple building a
new home decided to go
through their child's toy
collection and donate the toys
no longer being played with to
the Union County Fire and
Rescue Department.
"People have done that for
years," said Mindy Goodwin,
director of the Big Red
Christmas Drive, "but never
like this."
It seems Bill and Robin
Wilson had a little more than a
few toys to donate, as
Goodwin said they delivered
three refrigerator-sized boxes
full of toys for the rescue
department to give away. That
one family's donation brought
Christmas to 20 kids that year.
"That's how the Big Red
Christmas Drive all began,"
Goodwin said.
The annual event started out
small, but has now grown to
providing Christmas gifts to
more than 17'5 needy children
in Union County. Especially
after merging with the Toys
for Kids program, the rescue
station has received numerous
calls each day from parents
wanting to sign their kids up
for the program.
Unfortunately, the BRCD is
unable to provide Christmas
presents to every single child
in Union County and targets
specifically those that would
otherwise go without a
Christmas this year.
Goodwin said the idea
behind the program isn't-to
just keep a running list of the
same kids year after year, but
to serve families that aie,
perhaps, temporarily down on
their luck.
Because of their high
volume of public contact,
members of the fire, rescue
and sheriff's office are able to
provide the BRCD with leads
on families that might be in
need. Oftentimes, school


administrators will also make
suggestions about families that
could use the program. "We
call and ask them and then
visit with the family if they are
interested in the program,"
Goodwin said. In all the years
of its existence, she said that
only one family had declined
the offer of help from the
BRCD.
After meeting with families
at their home, an interview is
conducted where adult family
members provide their proof of
residency, income and
children's social security
numbers. "We have to do our
checking," Goodwin said.
"Otherwise, we may not be
able to get to those that really
need us."
The program generally picks
up each year around October,
but donated items can be
brought to the Union County
Fire and Rescue Department
year round. Towards
November and December, the
donations generally pick up a
bit.
This year, the BRCD
received a gift of their own: a
donor, who wishes to remain
anonymous, has given a piece
of property to the program to
build a storage warehouse and
has even offered to provide the
labor for the building. Up until
nov, the BRCD keeps things
stored in spaces at the rescue
station, Goodwin's residence
and her parents' home.
"You should see my mom's
house," Goodwin said. Velma
Browning has worked non-
stop handling phone calls,
organizing, shopping for and
wrapping gifts for this year's
event. "We could do so much
more if we had more rooi,.,
Goodwin said. With a donated
piece of land and a contractor
willing to provide labor for a
15' x 30' building, all that is
needed is the materials to
make it a reality.
So far this year, in addition
to numerous private donors,


several organized events have
raised money to provide for
nearly 170 children. "Even
today, we received a huge
anonymous donation of toys at
the rescue station," said
Goodwin. The people in Union
County are really coming
through with giving Christmas
to some well-deserving kids."
The Dream Machine in Lake
City is an organization that
will provide Christmas for
more than 700 children in
Columbia County this year and
has also gone out of their way
to donate items to children in
Union County.
Other recent and local
fundraisers include the
celebrity bagging event at
Spires IGA that raised $450 in
tips, the fall festival that raised
$2,000. a $450 donation from
the Lake Butler parade float
winners, gifts brought in by the
Lake Butler Rotary Club at


their annual Christmas party,
$1,500 from a poker run, a few
hundred dollars from the yard
sale and a change drive
currently taking place at Lake
Butler Elementary School.
In addition, Tom Jenkins of
Jenkins Electric donated 20
brand new bicycles to the
BRCD the day after
Thanksgiving. Dollar General
in Lake Butler has also been
extremely generous in
providing to the program.
Unfortunately, stores are not
offering the BRCD any special
discounts. Goodwin and her
clves do their shopping mainly
on the weekends, after
studying sale fliers (kept
organized in a file) and
clipping coupons. If they are
really thrifty', they average
about $100 on each child. At
175 children, that amounts to
no less than $17,500 of
Christmas cheer.
Goodwin said that as of


right now, there are 18 needy
children left on the list to buy
for and she is hoping members
of the community will be able
to continue bringing in gift
donations or their unused toys
and clothing to help out.
Already holding a full-time
job during the day, Goodwin
said that right now, many
evenings are spent from 5-9
p.m. getting everything ready
for the big delivery day.
On Christmas Eve, the
rescue station is filled with,
firefighters and members of
the Union County Sheriff's
Office filling up the big red
fire truck with Christmas gifts.
A rescue vehicle loaded with
gifts tags along \\ith several
members of the departments

Big show at Flying Tiger
.. airport in WS


Spirits as well as airplanes
flew sky high at the dedication
and donation ceremony of
Flying Tiger Airport to the city
of Worthington Springs by the
Rimes Family on Saturday,
Dec 1. More than 600 guests
were in attendance at the
official event hosted by the
city.
The donation of the F.A.A.
approved and certified airport-
complete with a lighted
helipad for the Shands
helicopter-has added an
additional $3.1 million to the
list of owned assets hy the city
of Worthington Springs.
Support for the largest
donation in Worthington
Springs' history came from
local, state and federal
dignitaries. Representatives
were on hand from Sen. Bill
Nelson's office as well as
Congressman Ander
Crenshaw's office. Sen. Steve
Oelrich also stopped by to
praise the event.
Members of the Union
County Sheriff's Office and
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office were on location as the
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office provided air support for
a candy drop for the children.
The Florida National Guard
sent a Blackhawk helicopter


courtesy of Maj. Gen. Dougias
Burnett and the Shands and
Trauma One helicopters were
also represented at the
dedication.
After a brief dedication
speech and unveiling of a pilot
statue by John D. Rimes III,
the crowd was served a catered
lunch buffet by Sonny's BBQ.
Sonny Tillman, owner of the
Sonny's restaurant franchise,
was there to share the event.
Following the meal,
everyone looked skyward to
see more than a dozen
skydivers descending on the
event. Decorated with colored
smoke and brightly colored
parachutes, they landed within
a few feet of their target. The
last skydiver unveiled an
American flag on his descent
as the gathered crowd heard
the National Anthem sung by
country music artist Leann
Rimes.
After the touchdowns, the
crowd roared with cheers of
approval. The day's activities

UCHS band alumnus trade in

Tiger uniforms for Gators


Is, there life and music after
High School Graduation? To
the members of the Spirit of
Union County Tiger Band the
answer is a very loud, "Yes
sir!"
The tiger band has enjoyed
great success over the years.
They have superior-rated
concert and marching bands.
They recently added a
successful jazz band program
that also obtains superior
ratings.
Several students play at the
state level individually and in
small ensembles. They also
have students selected for the
Florida All-State Bands and
Orchestras, Tri-State Bands,
and the North Florida Honor
Band.
Students put in hours of
practice and rehearsal time so
that they may excel in their
craft. But what happens after
high school graduation? Does
the music stop? Does the
instrument get put back into its
case for the last time merely to
gather dust in a closet
somewhere?
For a few, that might be the
case. But the majority go on to
further their musical education
by joining various groups after
graduation.
Some go on to join
professional orchestras, garage
bands, or jazz combos and can
be seen in various clubs or
stages throughout the area.
Others will join a church
orchestra and play weekly in
their church services. There
are also various adult groups
such as the Gainesville
Community Band. Many
students played with these
groups while still in high
school so it becomes a natural
transition for them.

Some go on to college and
make it a career by majoring in
music. Others join the
marching bands, symphonic
bands, or jazz ensembles
offered by the various
institutions of higher learning.
In doing so, they become a

member of their new school's
identity such as the FSU
Marching Chiefs or the UF
Gator Band.
Regardless, music can be a
wonderful way to have
camaraderie, make business
connections, or simply a way
to "let off steam' at the end of
a long day. Those who have
continued to play after high
school have come to realize
this important fact. And even'
those who never play their
instrument again have a better
appreciation every time they
turn on the radio and listen to
their favorite musical artist.
Kelly Dorsey, the Tiger
band director, may have put it
best: "When you see the
Grand Canyon you can
appreciate how beautiful it is.
But when you have a couple of
courses in geology and then
see the Grand Canyon, it
becomes awe inspiring."

Making sense of the proposed tax amendment


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer

Florida voters must
approve the property
tax proposal by 60
percent at the voting
polls on Jan. 29,
2008 in order for it
to become law.


Part of the property tax
amendment doubles the
current $25,000 homestead
exemption for homes valued
between $50,000 and $75,000.
This offers an average home
owner savings of about $240 a
year ($20 a month) in taxes per
Florida home owner based on
the average property tax rate
for the state of $9.45 per
$1,000 taxable property value.
Gov. Charlie Crist has

promised the property-tax plan
will reignite the state's
economy and fix the broken
property tax system in Florida.
Additionally, Crist said it
will boost home sales because
the proposal includes
portability, something many
new home owners cling to in
hopes of greater tax relief
advantages. Portability is the
ability of home owners to
carry their Save Our Homes
savings with them when they
move.
One of the owners of the
polling company, Tom Eldon,
said, "Do people decide that a
bad tax reform is better than no
tax reform, or do they wait for
something better?"
Just last week, Crist began
his $1 million "Vote on 1"


May the magic
of Christmas be
with you during

season and always!

campaign to gain support
through issuing a press
conference, mailings and voice
mail messages to voters.
Union County commissioner
Wayne Smith said he doesn't
feel the tax proposal will effect
Union County at all. However,
others disagree. According to
Union County Property
Appraiser Steve Saunders, it
will reduce the property tax of
the average home owner by
about $240 a year-- a savings
many may be anxious to cash
in on-- but the combined
savings of all home owners in
Union County amounts to a
huge loss in funding for the
local governments. In turn, that
results in budget cuts.
"When the county prepared
the annual budget, we did not
pick the rollback millage rate
and stayed at the allowable 10
mills," said county'
commissioner Karen Cossey.
The reason was two-fold
because a lesser rate would
have disqualify the county
from being eligible for grants
and other assistance from the
government, and with the new
tax proposal, it is not
completely clear just how
much it will hurt the county's
revenues.
Statewide, city and county
governments are projecting
cuts to their community
services in areas such as fire,
EMS, sheriff/police, road
construction and social
services. More budget cuts to
cities and counties means that
some municipal employees
will lose their jobs.
For example, Tampa's
mayor Pam lorio is being
proactive and has laid off more
than 200 city employees due to
the expected reduced revenue
due to the property tax reform.
According to their website,
the Florida Professional
Firefighters, with over 22,000
members, opposes the
constitutional amendment of
property tax reductions
because it will result in
significantly reduced budgets
for public safety agencies
without providing with -an
alternative source of funds,
firefighter and paramedic
layoffs, increased response

time to 911 calls (due to fewer
employees), increased injuries
to firefighters due to personnel
shortages resulting in higher
workers compensation claims,
curtailing the ability of fire-
rescue departments to respond
and assist in hurricanes and
wildfire disasters and higher
property insurance rates for
home owners and commercial
property owners due to
reduced fire protection (ISO
Rating).
If the proposal passes, what
home owners are likely to see
is an increase in special
assessments placed on their
property tax bills by the county
to make up for lost revenue.
If it passes, what does the
proposed property tax
amendment do?
SThe two provisions in the
proposed constitutional
amendment that would impact
most Floridians are: (1) the
increase in the homestead
exemption and (2) a change
dubbed "portability" that
would allow homestead
property owners to transfer up
to $500,000 of their Save Our
Homes benefits to a new
homesteaded property.
Currently $25,000 of your-
home's value is exempt from
all property tax. The
amendment would provide
another $25,000 exemption on
homes valued over $50,000.
However, the new exemption
only applies to the local
government portion of your tax
bill. It doesn't apply to the
schools taxes. So the
additional exemption will
really be about $15,000.
What is the downside to this
amendment?
While the average tax
savings for individual home.
owners is relatively small
(only about $20 per month),
the combined loss in revenue
to local governments is
significant. State economists
say that this economic
downturn is unprecedented.
Florida has not experienced
back-to-back annual revenue
declines since the Revenue
Estimating Conference began
tracking the economy in 1971.

Who let the

dogs out?


The city of Lake Butler
would like it known that they
will begin enforcing existing
codes in regards to the
impounding of 'pets found
running loose throughout the
city.
The city of Lake Butler has
always had codes pertaining to
the impoundment of dogs
found running at large,
however, such codes have not
been completely enforced. Pet
owners who retrieve their dogs
from impoundment have not
being held responsible for the
fees involved in the high cost
of feeding, housing and paying
for dog-catching service.
Section 10-61 to 10-64 of
the Lake Butler city code state
that the animal control officer,
sheriff, or his deputy is
designated by the city council
to capture and impound' any
and all dogs found running on
the streets of the city.
Section 10-62 states that any
dog that is captured and
impounded, an attempt shall be
made to notify the owner, if
known. If the dog is not
retrieved by the owner within
five days and all costs paid, the
dog shall be sold. If no price is
offered sufficient to cover the
costs and charges connected
with the dog's impoundment,
it shall be destroyed.
A fee of $15 shall be
assessed against the owner of
any dog impounded. In
addition, a daily charge of
$7.50 for each day of
impoundment will be imposed
upon the owner as well as any
costs related to medication or
treatment rendered.
The animal control officer is
responsible for keeping a
record book of all dogs
impounded, sold or disposed
of including fees and
owner/buyer names.
According to the official
report, 14 dogs were picked up
during the month of
November.

(Legislative)
Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS; LIMITATIONS ON PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS

Ballot Summary:

This revision proposes changes to the State Constitution relating to property taxation. With respect to homestead property, this revision: (1) increases the homestead exemption except for school district taxes and (2) allows homestead
property owners to transfer up to $500,000 of their Save-Our-Homes benefits to their next homestead. With respect to nonhomestead property, this revision (3) provides a $25,000 exemption for tangible personal property and (4) limits :-;
assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property except for school district taxes.

relinquishing their previous homestead; except, if this revision is approved by the electors in January of 2008 and if the new homestead is established on January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have been relinquished in 2007. If
the new homestead has a higher'just value than the previous one, the accumulated benefit can be transferred; if the new homestead has a lower just value,'the amount of benefit transferred will be reduced. The transferred benefit may
not exceed $500,000. This provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible personal property. This provision applies to all taxes...

b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be repealed if a future constitutionalramendment provides for assessment of homesteads "at less than just value" rather than as currently provided "at a specified percentage" of just value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the electors and operate retroactively to January 1, 2008, if approved in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or to takeeffect January 1, 2009, if approved in the -
general election held in November of 2008. The limitation on annual assessment increases for specified real property shall first apply to the 2009 tax roll if this revision is approved in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or shall
first apply to the 2010 tax roll if this revision is approved in the general election held in November of 2008.

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area


Former Blanding commander retires after 40 years


After nearly 40 years of
military service, Col. Jerry
Vaughn is finally hanging up
his green beret.
The Florida Army National
Guard chief of staff, who spent
much of his career in the U.S.



Newspapers

state's top

source of

advertising
When Florida consumers
want a new car, need a new
appliance or are in search of
the best deals at local
supermarkets, most of them,
regardless of their age, still
turn to their local newspaper.
A statewide research study,
conducted for the Florida Press
Association by American
Opinion Research, finds that
two-thirds (66 percent) of
those who use any advertising
say newspapers are their
primary source of local sales
and shopping information.
Even among younger adults,
ages 18 to 29, almost half (47
percent) say newspapers are
their primary source. The
Internet ranked second among
this age group at 19 percent.
Newspapers are even
stronger among other age
groups.
"There is a false perception
among many people that
newspapers have become
antiquated," said Carol Hudler,
president and publisher of The
News-Press and Gannett Sun
Coast Newspapers. "These
study results are not surprising
to those in the industry, but in
a changing world, they
confirm the value of a
newspaper's portability and its
in-depth local shopping
information."
The study found that Florida
consumers look to newspapers
as the top source of advertising
for a wide variety of products
and services, including
groceries, major 'appliances,
autos, 'hardware, real estate,
employment and local
entertainment. Groceries, jobs
and entertainment are
particularly strong, with six in
10 consumers saying
newspapers are their main
source.
These are some other key
findings of the survey:
*82 percent (10.2 million) of
adults in Florida read at least
one newspaper during the
week, much higher than the
national average of 52 percent.
'.Newspaper readership is
strong among all demographic
groups, even among the
youngest adults ages 18 to 24.
*Almost six in 10 Floridians
read a weekly or community
newspaper.
This 'study confirms that
Florida consumers are avid
newspaper readers," Hudler
said. "It also shows there is a
strong potential for
newspapers to further build
readership."
A total of 1,000 interviews
were conducted during the
study, using a systematic
random selection of telephone
households and respondents
within each household. Results
have a margin of error plus or
minus 3.2 percentage points. A
complete copy of the study is
available online at:
www.flpress.com/statewidesur
vey.pdf.

Editorial/Opinion

Thursday, Dec. 20, 2007 Page 4B


The holiday
season is the
time to give
blood
Dear Editor,
With the passing of
Thanksgiving, LifeSouth
Community Blood Center
Should -like-to-say, thanks for
giving. Over the past year our
donors have quietly gone about
the business of saving lives.
But they could use some help.
It's estimated that in the
United States nearly 63 percent
of the people will need blood
at some point in their lifetime,
but currently only about five
percent donate blood regularly.
During the holidays the flow
of donors slows to a trickle.
However, hospitals do not take
a holiday, they need blood
every day, and in fact trauma
.oenr he highways during this
time of year can often spike the
demand.
Thats why this year we'd
like to ask you to begin a
holiday tradition, donate blood.
Put it at the top of your gift
giving list. It's the gift you
won't have to wrap, it's
guaranteed to fit, and it will
only cost about an hour of
your tinie.
In the coming weeks as you
walk through the crowded
stores and malls, look around
and see if you can pick out the
faithful five percent. Then
think about this: if just one
more person in 100 would
make the decision to become a
blood donor, there likely
would not be seasonal
shortages. That person could be
you.
You could be the person
who encourages others to take


that step. One hour of your
time may give a family the best
gift of the season, and you
won't have to wrap it. To
donate, please call (352) 334-
1039 in Gainesville or (386)
755-0480 in Lake City.
Sincerely,
Nancy Eckert, CEO,
LifeSouth Community Blood
Centers Gainesville

Our town, in
Christmas
lights
Going to town in Lake
Butler is something that I do
not do very often, home is a
better place for me.
However, a few nights ago,
it was necessary for me to go
down to Main Street. My eyes
nearly popped out of my head
when I looked u.p and down
Main Street. Behold, I thought
I was in Jacksonville or some
other big city. As I drove along
very slowly, I saw the tall light
poles entwined with Christmas
lights and other decorations,
along with signs that read,
"Welcome to Lake Butler."
Our little town so lit up was
a beautiful sight for my old
eyes to see. I could not help
but get goose bumps, thankful
that I have lived in Lake Butler
all of my life and remembering
the sandy streets and large oak
trees that were once up and
down Main Street when I was
a little girl.
The decorations in
downtown Lake Butler did not
just fall out of heaven one
night while I was sleeping. A
lot of work and many hours of
labor went into making it so
special. Let's remember to give
thanks to our city fathers and
the employees and RMC


helpers who continue to make
our town the best-place on
earth to live as we prepare for
"peace on earth and good will
to men."

Courthouse is
inaccessible
for the
handicapped
Dear Editor:
Isn't it bad enough to have
county employees driving
county cars and trucks off duty
to home grocery stores and
anywhere they please including
out of county and letting them
park next to the courthouse,
requiring taxpayers to park
away from the court house and
walk past the bureaucrat's cars
to get to the place where the
law requires them to go to do
the business.
What about the handicapped?
Anywhere you and I go in this
county and elsewhere
handicapped parking places are
put nearest the main entrance,
but not at the good old boys
courthouse. Our courthouse is
damn near inaccessible for the
handicapped. The handicapped
places were properly located
prior to the addition, but not
one of them. has been changed
that I know of. Sad to say that
most of the handicapped that
have to go to the courthouse
are military related. Now isn't
that a shame?
Now what about all of those
important county employees
who take up the near
courthouse parking all day
long making the people who
pay their salary walk a long
way to take care of thing that

Keystone,
show our
commissioner
support
Dear Editor:
A little over a year ago, I ran
for county commissioner of
this district, District 4. I was
soundly defeated by a very,
-smart-and savvy young lady by
the name of Chereese Stewart.
During our campaign
throughout this district, all of
the candidates were reminded,
that we, the Keystone Heights
area, were not represented
equally on the county
commission.,
A large number of times I
heard people say that, "James
Jett was always available and
was down here in Keystone
when we needled him, but we
have not had that kind of
representation since." I
promised, as did most of the
other candidates, that we would
have a presence in Keystone.
We would have office hours so
that we would be available for
our constituents to talk to us
directly and in person.
Stewart has been keeping
that promise, however, most of
the people who complained
that they didn't feel represented
have yet to take advantage of
her availability.
For the past three months
Stewart has been at city hall on
the first Saturday of the month
for her constituents. Except for
this month, the meetings have
been advertised in the paper. I
have been at two of the three
meetings, and so far, there have
been approximately 18 people
total show up. Most of the
people are the same ones every.
time.
Stewart has taken on actions
to look into some significant
problems that are peculiar to
our area of her district; she has
been especially active in
researching and acting on
suggestions for our lake
restoration: She has been very
vocal in defending- our rural
way of life'and vdting in odr


best interests. She took a
leadership role on resolving the
heir's exemption problems and
the use of campers for visitors
to our homes.
These next few months are
going to very crucial to our
future as we address growth
issues, transportation and
economic development.
Stewart is the person we have
chosen to champion our causes;
she deserves our support and
wants to get your input.
I will continue to give
Stewart my support and input,
at her meetings in Keystone. If
the people around Keystone
don't take advantage of
spending time with our county
commissioner, we will fall
short in our effort to get all of
our issues addressed. If you
don't tell her the issues, she
may never hear of them.
To come to Keystone is at
least one half an hour drive
from her home each way on the
weekend and that is quite a.


sacrifice' for our county
representative to make. I would
like for us, the residents of the
Keystone Heights area, to show
her the support she deserves
and needs.
Watch the paper for her next
visit and at least come by and
say hello. She is one of the
friendliest people you will ever
meet.

Union woman
dies from
injuries
in crash
A Lake Butler woman died
Friday from injuries suffered in
a Worthington Springs crash on
S.R. 121 at C.R. 18.
Mary w. Dorsey, o0, was
pronounced dead at 9:30 p.m.,
12 hours after the Dec. 14
accident. Dorsey and 12-year-old
Emmit Dorsey were transported
to Gainesville Shands
'University from the scene at
9:45 a.m., Trooper R.L.
Carmichael said. Emmit Dorsey
had minor injuries.
Dorsey, driving a 1997
Honda, was eastbound on C.R.
18. She drove her vehicle into
the path of a pickup truck that
was on S.R. 121, Trooper
Carmichael said.
The driver of the 2005
Chevrolet pickup, Donald M.
Esford, 55, of Raiford, was also
transported to Shands
Uni ersiti. He was listed in
serious condition by the
trooper, but was not in the
Shands system as of press time.
Total damages to the vehicles
were $20,000.
Mary Dorsey was not related
to Kelly Dorsey, band director
at Union County High School.

Bradford
woman
shoots
intruder
A Bradford County native
shot an intruder at her home in
Lexington, Ky. last week.
Just after 10 p.m. on Dec.
13, Lauren Detlefsen and her
roommate heard a noise and
realized someone was trying to
break through a window. After
calling 911, they warned the
intruder to leave while the
police were on the line.
Detlefsen, who is a graduate
student at the University of
Kentucky, shot the man when
he continued to try to pry the
window open. The burglar was
tgkten to the nearby hospital
with non, life-threatening
iinuries. He was treated and
released, then arrested and
charged with second-degree
burglary.
The intruder, who was drunk,
lives in the neighborhood. He
apparently mistook the home
for his, police said.
Detlefsen acted in self-defense
and will not face charges, police
said.

BC Extension provides tips for a healthy holiday


The holidays are in full
swing. For many of us, that
means the abundance of
family, fun, and food.
Keeping your nutrition goals
on track during this time of
year can be a real challenge.
We all seem to start out with
the best intentions, but
somehow get diverted along
the way. I'm sure it has
nothing to do with the extra
social events, the busy after-
work shopping or the delicious
tempting treats this time of
year.
How can one stay on a
healthy eating plan while
starring down the barrel of a
holiday cheese ball? Fear not.
Follow these tips to avoid the
extra holiday poundage:
Don't skip meals.
Skipping your regular meals
will only make you hungrier
later on and more likely to
over-indulge in unhealthy
foods such as the hours
d'oeuvres at the work party or
the value meal in the local fast
food joint.
Pace yourself. Pay
attention to how quickly you
eat and what you eat and drink.
Savor the flavor by eating
slowly. Remember, the
holidays are about spending
quality time with the family.
It's not all about the food.
Step away from the


buffet table. Don't load up at
the buffet table. Keep portion
sizes small by putting your
snacks on a small plate instead
of a 'large one, and limit your
trips. Before going back for a
second helping, give yourself
20 minutes. You'll often find
that you're not as hungry or
your attention has been
diverted to something else.
Pick healthier options. If
you're going to someone else's
home, take a good look at the
menu before you load up your
plate. Spend your extra
calories carefully. If Auntie
Martha's homemade pecan pie
makes you weep with joy,
don't fill your plate with Uncle
Bob's so-so bean dip. You'll
enjoy what you really like
instead of what you don't care
too much for.
Be a health-conscious
host. Take a trip to the local
farmer's market and/or grocery
store and try to plan your meal
around the fresh, seasonal
fruits and vegetables. Bowls of
fresh fruit are a festive and
sweet substitute for candy and
chocolates. Instead of the high-
calorie hours d'oeuvres we all
tend to fill up on, set out bite-
sized, healthy snacks such as
popcorn, raisins or nuts.
Overeating at the holidays is
so tempting and sometimes

,just down right unavoidable.
Hopefully, you find the tips
provided helpful. Just keep in
mind that the holidays are
about spending time with your
family. We all get caught up in
the commercialization this


time of year and forget why we
are celebrating in the first
place. Yes, the food is good,
but the presence of family is
much more delicious.
If you have any questions
regarding healthy lifestyles,
you can contact the Bradford


County Extension office at
(904) 966-6224.
Submitted by Melanie
Thomas, family consumer and
science agent with the
Bradford County Extension
Office.


It is a good idea to be ambitious, to have goals, to want to be good at what you do, but it
is a terrible mistake to let drive and ambition get in the way of treating people with kindness
and decency. The point is not that they will then be nice to you. It is that you will feel better
about yourself.

Starke drag racer Gunter earns 4 wins in 2007


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
.Telegraph Staff Writer
When Mitchell Gunter of
Starke drives his 1997
Mercury Cougar back and
forth to work, people probably
do not pay much attention to
the vehicle. It is what it is-a
means of transportation.
Put it on a drag race strip,
however, and that's a different
story. People take note, going
from a state of disbelief that
the car should even be entered
in a race to another state of
disbelief stemming from the
fact the car is competitive.
"One guy said he actually
laughed when he saw my car
up there in the staging area,"
Gunter said. "He said he quit
laughing after he saw the time
flash up on the board."
Gunter won four races this
year as part of the National
Hot Rod Association Summit
E.T. Series in Gainesville. He
competed in seven finals
overall, as wll l as reaching the
finals once in the
Dragracingresults.com Series.
Entering the year, Gunter
was hoping to get at least two
wins-one more than he
earned in 2006.
"It was just shocking
picking up so many wins and
being able to go to so many

58 counties
are primary,
natural
disaster areas
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture designated 58
Florida counties as primary
natural disaster areas because
of losses caused by drought
that occurred on Jan. 1, 2007,
and continuing, announced
Kevin L. Kelley, state
executive director for the
USDA Farm Service Agency.
Those counties include
Alachua, Bradford, Baker,
Clay, Putnam and Union
counties.
All counties named were
designated natural disaster
areas on Nov. 26, 2007,
making all qualified farm
operators in the designated
areas eligible for low interest
emergency loans from USDA's
Farm Service Agency,
provided eligibility
requirements are met.
Farmers in eligible counties
have eight months, from the
date of the declaration to apply---
for loans to help cover part of
their actual losses. The agency
will consider each loan
application on its own merits,
taking into account the extent
of losses, security available
/ and repayment ability.


finals," he said. "It was
shocking a lot of people out
there, too."
Gunter attributes some of his
success to a little bit of luck.


Sometimes he was the
beneficiary of foul starts by his
opponents, which would
automatically advance him to
the next round. However, he


also said that those foul starts
may have been caused by the
success he was experiencing at
the time.
"They were afraid if they


didn't get a good jump on the
light they wouldn't have a
chance to beat me at the end,"
Gunter said.
He was involved in some


close contests, winning by just
milliseconds, and some
memorable contests, such as

Continued from p.1C

one win over April Macal, who
wound up finishing on top in
the true street class, which
Gunter runs in the Summit
E.T. Series. During that race,
Gunter was only one-
thousandth of a second off of
his dial-in time-the time a
driver estimates his or her car
will take to cross the finish
line.
"There was no way she
could've beaten me," he said.
Gunter said he certainly felt
like he was on a roll as all his
final-round wins occurred
during a short time frame.
"I felt like everything I was
doing with the car and in
preparing myself was working
out," he said. "I'm just hoping
it will carry into next season as
well."
Gunter said he would like to
try to get his car a little faster,
but admitted that's the goal of
every driver.
"You're never really
happy," he said. "You always
want to go that extra mile and


get it quicker. It becomes like
an addiction."
That '97 Cougar Gunter
drives did get faster from 2006
to 2007. He was running 13.1
seconds in a quarter of a mile
and 8.4 seconds in an eighth of
a mile. He has brought those
times down to 12.74 and 8.2
seconds.
Gunter credits that to going
up on his fuel injector size,
which resulted in an additional
10 horsepower. It was pricey,
he said, but worth it.
"It was $300 I had to spend
on that injector, but it worked
out," Gunter said. "Anytime
that you can change something
on your car and gain instead of
losing is definitely good."
Gunter said his car, which
has a 2003 GT Mustang
engine, seems to get better and
better, as if the more miles he
puts on it, the better it runs. He
has no aspirations to get
another car to compete in. The
Cougar has been good to
him-as'a source of everyday
transportation and as a
competitive drag racer.
"I'm really happy with this
car," Gunter said. "I've had it


for some years. Hopefully, I
can hold onto it forever."
Some people aren't as happy
with the car as Gunter is.
People who run against him at
the track in Corvettes, for
example, don't like losing to
what is basically a "heavy,
family car."
Gunter said you can't judge
a car by its looks. He
remembered a driver at the
track who was competing in a
Mitsubishi EVO.
"He dialed in at 9.25,"
Gunter said. "Everyone was
laughing at him because he
had a chute on the car. He
turned in a 9.25 dead on at 160
miles an hour in a little four-
cylinder.
"It just shows you looks can
be deceiving."
Bracket drag racing has
more to do with a car's
consistency and a driver's
reaction time. Start times are
different for each car
depending upon dial-in times.
A car with a higher dial-in
time gets a head start, so to
speak, that is equal to the
difference of the dial-in times
of the two cars competing
against each other.

The first car across the finish
line still wins, but a driver
must not do so at a time faster
than his or her dial-in. That is
known as a breakout and
results in disqualification.
Gunter likes to size up his
competitors before he takes
them on. He will walk around
the staging lanes and look at
other people's vehicles. He
especially takes note if it's
someone he hasn't raced
against before. He will watch
those drivers in their time runs
to see what their reaction times
are and how close they are to
their dial-ins.
"That way, it gives me an
idea of how good I have to be
on my reaction times," Gunter
said.
Of course people are
checking out Gunter's car, too.
"I had about 15 people come
out of the stands to look at my
car," he said of a Wednesday
night he spent testing his car.
"They could not believe the
time it was running. They had
to look for themselves."
It's all part of an atmosphere
Gunter loves being a part of.
He can't imagine not being
involved in racing and
interacting with the people he
gets to meet at the' track.
"I like it because I'm a
competitor," he said. "I also
like it because of the crowd of
people I'm around on the
weekends out there. It's like
car talk the whole time."

Remember playing the
game "Monopoly"? "Do not
collect $200!" became a
household phrase. Some-
times, towards the end of the
game, you might have sold a
property to another player for
half-price just to raise some
cash.
In real life, you would
never accept half-price for
your home or would you?
What if you owed $88,000 on
a home you wanted to sell for
$100,000? Now what if a
prospective buyer offers to
buy it at a discount of 6% off
the asking price? Although
you would like to receive full
asking price, you accept.
You've just sold your house
for half price!
How's that? Your equity -
the..difference between the


sale price and what you owe
- is what you receive at clos-
ing. It can easily slip
through your fingers at the
hands of a buyer who is good
at negotiation.
Allowing that 6% dis-
.,.count ($6,000), you .are sell-
ingfor a price of $94,000
w-hile you still owe $88,000.
That means you will receive
$6,000 cash in hand at clos-
ing rather than the $12,000
you had anticipated half
price!
Perhaps the most valuable
role played by real estate
agents is that of negotiator.
When you list your home,
you empower the agent to
represent you in any negotia-
tions that take place. Expect
the best from your agent and
,reap the financial rewards.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Anbreyal Stewart scored 16
of her team-high 23 points.i n
-- -the -firsTh- hilf,--helping the
Tigers build a 20-point lead en
route to a 77-45 win over Class
4A Baker County on Dec. 17
in Lake Butler.
The Tigers, who improved
to 12-1, were never seriously
threatened. Though they were
without starter Terissa Nutt,
who was ill, they got off to a
fast start and then closed the
game out with several
fastbreak opportunities.
Stewart was instrumental in
that fast start. Seconds after
grabbing an offensive rebound,
she sank a short jump shot for
the game's first basket. She
later had a steal that led to her
own basket and had a rebound
putback that capped a 14-2
run. Sharmaine Couch and
Amber Franzluebbers each had
a 3-pointer during that stretch.
Baker County did cut the
Tigers' lead in half after a
basket by Caitlin Griffis, but
Union responded with a score
by Couch and a 3-pointer by
Ashli Watkins.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Keystone Heights had no
trouble with visiting Pierson
Taylor, holding the Wildcats to
five field goals en route to a
47-12 win in a District 6-3A
girls' basketball matchup.
Morgan Maxwell scored
twice in the fourth quarter to
finish with a team-high 12
points as the Indians (6-4, 3-1
in District 6) won their fifth
straight game. One of
Maxwell's baskets in the
fourth quarter was set up by
teammate Megan Poupard's
steal.
That pretty much summed
up the way the game went for
the Wildcats, who committed
more than 30 turnovers. Five
turnovers led directly to
Keystone scores in the first
half as the Indians built a 16-


point halftime lead.
The Indians scored the first
12 points of the game. A
rebound putback by Poupard
got the team rolling early. A
steal by Kim Russell led to a
layup by Abby Knabb. Heather
Martin had two consecutive
baskets, scoring off of an
offensive rebound by Knabb
and then following a backcourt
steal by Russell.
A Karleigh Smoak basket
put Keystone up 12-0. Pierson
Taylor finally scored at the
1:49 mark of the opening
quarter.
A buzzer-beater shot by
Smoak sent the Indians into
the second quarter up 14-3.
Then then scored eight of the
first 10 points of the second
quarter.
Martin had consecutive
steals, the second of which
