white spray paint on their
church buildings according to
the Union County Sheriff's

The incidents~took place at
Fellowship Baptist Church,
Pine Grove Congregational
Methodist Church and New
River Congregational
Methodist Church. A fourth
church, Evergreen Baptist
Church in Bradford County,
was also vandalized in the
same manner and believed to
be related to the incidents in
Union County.
On Jan. 16, C.R. 237 North
was renamed in honor of
former Union County Sheriff
John H. Whitehead, a road
which had been nicknamed
John Whitehead Road for
some time. The idea was
suggested before the county by
Commissioner Karen Cossey.
Less than a month later,
Whitehead passed away on
Feb. 9. He was the Union
County Sheriff from 1953 to
1985.
The Department of,
Transportation renovated a
1955 timber bridge known as
the New River Bridge located
on C.R. 229 at the Bradford-
Union county line. The project
cost more than $6 million and
the bridge re-opened to the

Wiley receives 366-day sentence


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer

Department of Corrections
Secretary James McDonough
is not pleased by the plea deal
and one-year sentence handed
down to a former correctional
officer who helped two
inmates escape last month.
Laura Elizabeth Wiley, of
Lake Butler, was arrested and
charged with two counts of
escape for her partin helping
inmates William Bruton, 30,
.and Justin McCullough, 36,
walk off the grounds of the
Reception and Medical Center
on Nov. 21;
According to an article
published in the Gainesville
Sun, McDonough questioned
state attorney Bill Cervone's
light sentence for Wiley, who
faced up to 30 years in prison.
"I flat don't understand it,"
McDonough said. "This is an
outrage. I have an officer
(Wiley) here who, no. 1, put


her fellow officers' -lives as
risk, and, no. 2, perhaps more
important, jeopardized the
public safety." McDonough
went on to say that Wiley's


Laura Wiley


actions were the
"ultimate treachery" for a DOC
officer. The agency also
deployed nearly 100


employees, including K-9
squads and helicopter teams,
to search for the escapees.
Also according to The Sun,
DOC was unaware that
Cervone had made a plea deal
with Wiley, dropping one of
the charges and resulting in a
year-and-one-day sentence.
"It seems to me the
responsbile move would have
been to inquire with the victim
(DOC) about it," McDonough
is stated as saying.
Cervone said Wiley had no
previous criminal record and
he felt no obligation to call
McDonough about the deal.
Wiley was involved in a
romantic relationship with one
of the prisoners she helped
escape, a DOC report
concluded.
Wiley, a DOC employee
since 2004, began her sentence

Minimum wage set to rise in January


Union County part of FHSAA top

100 years of high school football


Florida's minimum wage is
$6.79 per hour, effective Jan.
1,2008.
This is up from the $6.67 per
houLr minimum wage in 2007.
In 2004, Florida voters
approved a constitutional
amendment which created
Florida's minimum wage. The
minimum wage applies to all
employees in the state who are
covered by the federal
minimum wage.
Florida law requires the
Agency for Workforce
Innovation to calculate a new
minimum wage each year and
publish the new minimum
wage on Jan. 1.
The current minimum wage
represents a 1.85 percent
change in the federal
consumer price index for urban
wage earners and clerical
workers in the south region for
the 12-month period prior to
Sept. 1, 2007. Florida's
minimum wage is 94 cents
more than the current federal
minimum wage of $5.85.
In deciding whether the
federal or state minimum wage
applies, federal law directs
that businesses must pay the
higher of the two. The Florida
minimum wage will prevail
over the federal rate until such
time as the federal minimum
wage becomes higher than the


state rate..
Employers must pay their
employees the hourly state
minimum wage for all hours
worked in Florida. The
definitions of "employer,"
"employee" and "wage" for
state purposes are the same as
those established under the
federal Fair Labor Standards
Act.
Employers of "tipped
employees" who meet
eligibility requirements for the
tip credit under the Fair Labor
Standards Act, may count tips
actually received as wages
under the act. However, the
employer must pay "tipped
employees" a direct wage. The
direct wage is calculated as
equal to the .minimum wage
($6.79) minus the 2003 tip
credit ($3.02), or a direct
hourly wage of $3.77 as of Jan.
1,2008.
Employees who are not paid
the minimum wage may bring-
a civil action against the
employer or any person
violating Florida's minimum
wage law. The state attorney
general may also bring an
enforcement action to enforce
the minimum wage.

Hospital was on lockdown for
more than four hours following
an employee becoming ill after
opening an envelope that

powdery substance, thought to
be anthrax.
As a precaution, Union
County Fire and Rescue was

County Emergency
Management. Hospital
employees were required to go
thorough a decontamination
process. HazMat was also
called in, and using field tests,
it was determined that the
substance was not harmful.

resigns
On March 10, Union County
High School head football

to take over fire station
In March, the Bureau of
Economic and Business
Research named the city of
Worthington Springs as
number one out of a list of 100
cities in Florida with the most
percentage of change in
population.
The population of
Worthington Springs
experienced a 156-percent
growth increase from 2000-
2006, which was attributed to a
number of voluntary
annexations the city. made
during those years.
Raiford ranked 39th on the
list, experiencing a 34-percent
growth change from 187 to
251 residents. Union County,
as a whole, grew 47.8 percent
from 2000-2006, increasing
from 10,166 to 15,028
residents.
Early in the year, the Union
County board of
commissioners approved an
interlocal agreement where the
Union County Fire and Rescue
assumed command of the
Worthington Springs volunteer
fire department.
Throughout the year,
additions and improvements
were made to the station,

City working on

agreements with DOC


In September, residents and
business owners within the city
of Lake Butler experienced an
increase in their water and
sewer rates. The last time the
water department had an
increase in rates was with the
1996 expansion of the
wastewater treatment plant.
The city's largest consumer
of water and sewer, the
Reception and Medical Center,
requires authorization for any
such change to be made
directly through the
Department of Corrections in
Tallahassee.
Since the time of the city's
rate increase, City Manager
John Berchtold has spent a
considerable amount of time
conducting research in regards
to what has been the RMC's
historical monetary share for
water and sewer services. In
addition, he met with the
deputy secretary of DOC about
the rate increase.
DOC does not receive a
regular monthly bill for
payment of water and sewer,
but instead pre-negotiates an
annual amount which is
dispersed to the city each
month.
In his research, Berchtold
found that DOC has always
paid just at 41 percent of the
total 'water usage in the city.
Right now, he said, DOC is
only covering about 39 percent
of the water usage
cost-$218,940.
After meeting with the
deputy secretary of DOC, it
was agreed that its annual bill
would be changed to $232,733,
reflecting an annual increase of
almost $14,000.
However, DOC is not as
receptive to splitting the cost
of upgrading the city's lift
station.
Board members agree that
because DOC requires such a
large portion of water and
sewer each month, it should
share in the responsibility for
placing as large of a strain on
the lift station as all of the


city's business and residential
customers combined.
DOC's share of cost in
upgrading the lift station
would be $175,000, an amount
it indicated it would be willing
to front the city with a
reasonable repayment plan.
Board members gave
Berchtold the authorization to
begin creating a formal request
for financial assistance to
DOC, along with several
payment alternatives, showing
the RMC's history of water
and sewer usage as a point of
argument in helping pay for
the lift station.
The city's lift station,
believed to be more than 20
years old, has begun to show
signs of aging and should be
replaced next year.

r


WILEY
Continued from p. 1A
a Florida Highway Patrol
officer stopped the car in High
Springs and arrested Bruton
and McCullough about 12
hours after their escape.
at Lowell Correctional
Institution last week.
Wiley gave Bruton and
McCullough correctional
officers uniforms while they
were working on a
maintenance crew on the
grounds of RMC. Wiley also
purchased food, backpacks and
fake birth certificates for their
planned escape to Mexico.
In the Sun's account of the
incident, Wiley drove the two
inmates off the prison grounds
to the La Quinta Inn on
Newberry Road in Gainesville,
where she had arranged for
someone to drive them to


Tampa.
The driver was unable' to
make the trip, and asked a
friend to fill in. The friend had
to cut the drive short, so
Bruton and McCullough ran
through the woods and swam
across the Suwannee River.
They met up with a man at
C.J.'s Santa Fe Saloon near
Branford and, with the cash
provided by Wiley, paid him
to drive them to 1-75. The
man's father called police after
he became suspicious about his
son's planned trip, resulting in
an alert on the car.

According to arrest records,
Bruton had been serving a 10-
year sentence for intentional
vehicular homicide and
MCCullough was serving a
three-year sentence for
robbery. Both men are from
Duval County.

project that will be of great
benefit to school counselors
who needed a place to store
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test materials.
The five students expertly
installed wooden shelves in
what had been six empty
cabinets.
"What was remarkable is
that the students, who had no
experience in carpentry,
completed the project in two
short days, putting in seven
hours each day," Brown said.
Brown, who has been a
lifelong amateur carpenter,
made it clear that the students
did all the work themselves,
under his guidance.
"I only ran the buzz saw for
obvious safety reasons," he
said.
The behavioral unit was
instituted last year with the
purpose of enhancing skills
and widening the educational
options for students who are
struggling with the regular
academic curriculum.

Posing next to the students' carpentry work (I-r) Instructor Tom Brown, teacher
aide Joe Vanvactor, student Terrell Brown, Principal Jeff Cable, student Kevin


Sampson.

"The program's objective is
to enable the students to be
more active on campus and to
open up other opportunities for
education," said BMS.
Principal Jeff Cable.
This would entail, said
Brown, the students devoting a
part of their studies, once at
the high school level, at
Bradford-Union Area Career
and Technical Center where
they can pursue any vocational
area for which they might
show an aptitude.


The program's inaugural
year in 2006-2007
concentrated on a blend of
academics, said Brown,
yielded very promising results.
"Based on annual
expectations, 75 percent of the
students showed a growth rate
of 50 percent in reading and a
75-percent growth rate in
mathematics," said Brown.
Credit for helping the
students achieve this progress
should go to teacher aides Joe
Vanvactor and Stephanie


Merrill, Brown'said.
Cable said the new program,
aside from existing at BMS,
has been implemented
countywide, with Southside
Elementary being the site for
grades kindergarten through
five, and Bradford High
School, grades eight through
12.
Brown said that more
projects, such as the one
recently completed, are being
contemplated before the end of
this school year.

Wake up, America!


Wake up, America, before it's too
late! It's high noon and the clock
is ticking. The music you hear may
sound like "The Song of India," but
in reality it is the voice of the Indian
economy saying to America, "Lead,
follow or get out of the way, because
we are on the move."
Ever since the Revolutionary War,
America has been the measuring
rod by which other nations in the
world determine their standing in
inventions, manufacturing, education,
health, agriculture, transportation
and all other functions 9f a civilized
society. We have been patronized by
politicians to believe our way of life is
superior to that of other nations to the
extent that we are now in trouble on
many fronts and in danger of loosing
our vaunted number one position in
several fields.
In the hundred years between 1850
and 1950, the United States was
without peer in almost every field,
but since World War II, the world has
shrunk with instant communication
and speedy transportation. Education
in many nations now exceeds that
of the United States, particularly in
the teaching of foreign languages,
mathematics and science in secondary
schools. Their brightest students are
slated for college while others attend
trade schools.
India is located in southeast Asia, the
seventh largest nation in geographical
area with the world's second largest'
population, numbering 1.12 billion
people. Its southern coastline extends
into the Indian Ocean, nrich nearer-
the Equator than Key West, and its
northern boundary is about as far
north as Washington, D.C. It is the
world's most populous democracy.
India, whose history dates back to
3300 B.C., .was colonized by the
United Kingdom, coming under
British colonial rule before gaining
its independence and becoming a


nation-state in 1947. Education has
strong government support, with 6
percent of the nation's gross domestic
product committed to schools. It has
dozens of universities with 18 being
designated as "central universities,"
ranking among the top 200 schools in
the world. Thirty percent of university
seats in medical and engineering
classrooms are reserved for female
students.
Indians are educated, energetic and
industrious, and taking industrial jobs
from other nations, notably the United
States. Textiles and electronics are
two fields in which Indians excel,
leaving Americans vulnerable and
unemployed as jobs have disappeared
from the American scene.. Indian
nationals are emigrating to the United
States, not to compete for entry-level
jobs, but as investors and owner-
operators of businesses, with emphasis
on convenience stores and motels.
But India isn't the only beneficiary
of America's benevolence in shipping
jobs overseas, although its education
system gives it a decided advantage.
-Automobiles with Japanese names
now dominate the market, with other
nations exporting cars and trucks--
around the world. General Motors is
in serious financial trouble, and Ford
Motor Company is in even worse
condition, and may not survive.
Chrysler Motors is currently owned
by private investors and may be
offered for sale to Japanese investors.
The nation simply cannot afford to
lose the automobile industry.
World Wars I and II were won by
the manufacturing capacity of the
United States, but that ability has
eroded substantially in the past 50
years, and the nation is no longer in
position to provide allied nations with
arms and munitions as it did in times
past. America, are you listening?

Telegraph Editorialist

Surveys say: Nurses enjoy

work at Shands Starke


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A question hospital
administrators are faced with
is, "How do you provide
excellent care?" One way to go
about that is to provide an
environment that not only
keeps the current nurses
happy, but is attractive to other
potential nurses as well.
Well, Shands Starke,
judging by survey results
compiled by an outside
vendor, appears to be doing
just that, which in turn equates
to better customer service for
those who visit the hospital.
Every year, the Shands


Health Care organization as a
whole participates in an
employee engagement survey.
For the past two years, Shands
Starke has posted the highest
percentage of Shands nurses'
satisfaction in the system at 87
percent.
Andrea Waterhouse, --chief
nursing officer, said nurses are
asked various questions as part
of the survey dealing with
issues such as satisfaction with
their overall work environment
and their relationship with and
level, of trust they have with
their managers.
Waterhouse said the survey
results the past two years show

administration.

market offers
more than
local foods

simply fresher than produce

allergies to local pollen.
Locally baked breads and
cakes are so fresh they don't
need preservatives. Find all
this and a festive community
atmosphere at the. new
Bradford Farmers Market,
opening Saturday, Jan. 5.
The Bradford Farmers
Market ribbon cutting at 8 a.m.
on opening day will feature
many local dignitaries, as well
as a plethora of local growers
and bakers. Founding vendors
will set up market booths at the
Bradford Health Department
ih' U.S. 301 in Starke, next to
Bill Adams Chevrolet.
Because the market
promotes local agriculture,
customers will find seasonal
produce and other goods that
are fresher than most road-
weary foods. That means
fruits and vegetables will have
more flavor, more nutritional'
value arid customers can talk
to the people who actually
grew or made the products.
Besides learning more about
the foods they buy to eat,
customers will be supporting
lpcal growers.
When a grower sells to a
wholesale house,, he gives a
lion's share of the final cost of
the product to the middlemen
who market and transport the
food to the consumer. Often
the consumer pays more for
wholesale-delivered produce
than they do when they buy
direct from the farmer.
SMost of the food you find in
the grocery store used a lot of
petroleum from seed to shelf.
Large industrial farms that
plant a single crop and use
conventional growing methods,
use lots of fertilizer and
pesticides derived from
petroleum. They plant, apply,
fertilizers and pesticides,
cultivate and harvest using
farm machines that run on
See MARKET, p. 2C


the hospital is an appealing
place for nurses to work.
Whereas in the past nurses in
this area may'have driven by
the hospital on their way to
jobs at hospitals in Gainesville
or Jacksonville, they are now,
as Waterhouse put it,
"flocking" to Shands Starke.
The hospital currently has
more than 60 nurses
throughout the different areas
of the hospital.
"I don't know a nurse alive
who doesn't want to work in a
great hospital," Waterhouse
said.
So what makes Shands
Starke "great?" Waterhouse
alludes to the technological
advancements the hospital has
made; but she and Gayle
Nicula, director of support
services/QA, also mention the
fact the hospital has an
employee-reward program.
Nicula said she feels that is a
big part of the current nurse
retention rate at the hospital.
"I think what keeps them
here is we do reward and we
do recognize our nurses,"
Nicula said.
Julie Klepfer, who has been
working at Shands Starke for
approximately six months, said
it is nice to be recognized by a
hospital's administration-
something she said she has not
experienced at larger hospitals.
"It means a .lot to be
recognized," she said. "It
makes you feel good that
somebody notices."
Craig Starling, who has
worked as 'a nurse at Shands
Starke for approximately two
years, said another reason he
enjoys working at the hospital
is because of his fellow nurses.
They enjoy a camaraderie that
results in a family atmosphere.
.Starling said if one nurse has
something come outside of the

The new Bradford Farmers Market will not only
promote local agriculture, but provide fresh food as
well. The market opens Saturday, Jan. 5, at 8 a.m. at

wholesale house or
manufacturing plant for
processing, marketing and
distribution. After this energy-
consuming processing, the
final product is trucked to your
store where it is displayed
under bright lights in coolers
or on air-conditioned shelves.
According to "Animal,
Vegetable, Miracle" by
Barbara Kingsolver, it takes
more fuel calories to bring the
food to market than the food
brings to the table.
Farmers markets .also help
reduce packaging waste.
Unlike the supermarket, most
market growers don't pack
produce in foam trays with
plastic wrap. The Bradford,
Farmers Market market
manager station will have a
collection site for customers to
bring their clean, used grocery
bags. Those bags will be
redistributed to the market's
growers to use in their stalls.
Here's more of what you can
expect on opening day:
-Danny Crawford of
Crawford Farms will bring
fruits and vegetables grown in
and around Starke.
-The Olde Tyme Bread
House promises breads, cakes,
pies and cookies.
-Sam Williams of Cognito
Farm features all-natural,
pesticide-free lettuce, greens,
herbs and other seasonal:
produce.
-Ruben Josey and Amanda
Kerns of Josey's Honey offer a
huge variety of honey and
honey products like lip balm.
-Edyth Robinson of RBH
will offer dried bottled spices
and a spice cookbook to help
shoppers prepare their fresh
produce.
-Donna Kay and Arthur
Wilson of D&K Aquaponics
will bring hydroponically-
grown produce and herbs.
--Dwight Camp of Camp
Farm in Alachua will offer
certified organic produce.
-On farm sales will be
promoted as well, including
grass-fed beef and tilapia.
All Bradford Farmers
Market vendors grow or bring
product that has been grown
within 75 miles of the market.

folks selling locally grown or
made products is $10 per
market day, or as low as $5 a
day when the vendor prepays
for the whole 36-week season.
An application must be filled
out before coming to vend.
All rules and forms are on the
Web site or by calling Sam
Williams at (904) 964-2616.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you-

from all of us at Jackson's!
At this time of year our attention is focused on Christmas. On behalf of the stockholders, officers,
directors and employees of Jackson Building Supply, I would like to thank you all for your support.
We realize that without you and more importantly, without the Grace and Mercy of Almighty God,
we could not exist as a business or even as individuals. Because you have been so good to us and
likewise God has been, we feel that we need to share with you what we believe Christmas is all about.
Christmas is surely a time of giving, as is evidenced by the giving or exchanging of many gifts.
When we think about Christmas giving we need to remember, "For God so loved the world, that he
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have everlasting
life," (John 3:16). God gave that we might believe on His Son and have a place In Heaven. Jesus paid
our sin debt and rose again to show that His payment was enough. However, if we reject what He
gave, we have a place in Hell.
Christmas needs to be a time for receiving, for no one can give a gift unless it is received. The Bible
says that the Gift of God, His Son, Jesus, "came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as
many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God. Even to them that believe
on his name; Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of
God." (John 1:11-13)
Christmas is a time of happiness, as evidenced on the face of many. Happiness depends on
happenings and can be short lived to gain real Joy and Peace this Christmas, why not right now
receive the greatest gift ever given, The Lord Jesus Christ? Jesus loves us and invites us to believe in
Him. If you have not made this commitment, you should right now receive Jesus Christ as your
personal Savior. If you have just now received Him...you can know the real Joy of Christmas for the
first time. For those of us who already know Him may we be drawn to a closer walk this
Christmas.
We thank God for the opportunity He has given us to serve your building supply and hardware needs
we also thank Him for allowing us to share Jesus Christ with you. After all, without Christ there
would be no Christmas.

I hospital he or she has to tend
to, there is always another
willing to step in and cover
that shift.
"There is not one person I
do not want to work with here.
at this hospital," Starling said.
"Everybody is a team player."
Klepfer, too, has noticed that
family atmosphere, which
helps make Shands Starke an
"awesome" place to work, she
said. Klepfer was persuaded by
her sister, Lisa, who is an
emergency department nurse
manager at Shands Starke, into
leaving a position as an
assistant nurse manager at
Baptist Medical Center to
come work in Starke.
She has no regrets.
"The staff is great," she said.
"There is a lot of camaraderie.
Everybody seems to work
together really well."
The hope is that if nurses are
satisfied with their work
environment, they will provide
better customer service. That is
another area in which Shands
Starke participates with
outside vendors, who collect
data pertaining to the
satisfaction of care patients at
the hospital receives. Nicula
said one vendor calls 34


emergency room patients
every month, asking them
about the level of care they
received.
"We want to know," Nicula
said. "Did you receive
excellent care?"
Starling said "excellent
care" can be defined
differently by different
patients. That's why he and the
other nurses ask patients
several questions to determine
how they can best meet their
needs and provide that level of
care.
"That way, we're providing
personalized service to that
individual patient to meet their
needs," Starling said. "It could
be anything from their pain
being controlled to having very
good food or having their bed
turned down every day-
whatever personalized service
they require."
It's one thing to ask patients
how to best serve them, but to
truly best meet their needs,
nurses must care about what
they do. Waterhouse feels the
nurses at Shands Starke do
care about helping their
patients as best as they can.
"We've got excellent
nurses," she said. "We have
the most professional staff
we've ever had here."
Starling said he considers it
an honor and very rewarding
to simply contribute something


to the community in which he
grew up. He has lived in
Starke his whole life. He went
away to go to college, but
returned to work in his
hometown hospital.
To hear that he and the rest
of the nursing staff are
successfully meeting patients'
needs makes it that much
better.
"It's a great feeling knowing
that we're meeting the needs
of our community and that


' I


they're very happy with us,"
Starling said.
.And if someone's not happy,
Waterhouse said she wants to
know. She encourages people
to call the hospital as a way of
helping it continue to improve.
She and Nicula, like Starling,
grew up in Starke and want to
see Shands Starke be the best it
can be.
"We want it to succeed,"
Nicula said. "We've invested a
lot here."

Leigh, Smyth earn state medals for BHS in 2007


The following is a look back
at the teams and individuals
who won championships at the
district, regional or state
levels, or who qualified to
participate in regional or state
competitions in 2007.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The number two was
memorable for Kelly Leigh
and Jennifer Smyth in 2007.
Leigh earned a medal for the
second straight year in the
Florida High School Athletic
Association Weightlifting
Finals, while Smyth won two
medals at the track and field
finals.
Leigh put together an
undefeated regular season for
the third straight year and
earned a berth in the FHSAA
Finals by winning the 154-
pound class at the Section 3
qualifying meet with a 340-
pound total.
At state, Leigh earned a
third-place finish with a 335-
pound total.
Samantha Schmidt also
joined Leigh at the FHSAA
Finals, but did not medal.
Schmidt was runner-up in the
101-pound class at the Section
3 qualifying meet with a 205-
pound total.
In track and field, Smyth
became the first girl from
Bradford High School to earn
a medal in 11 years. She did so
by placing third in the long
jump with a distance of 17'1 1"
and fourth in the triple jump
with a distance of 36'6.25".
That capped a season in
which Smyth earned three
district championships, one
runner-up finish at the district
level and two runner-up
finishes at the regional level.
At the District 5-2A meet,
Smyth won the long jump and
triple jump with distances of
18'5" and 33'2". She also won
the 400m with a time of
1:01.65.
Smyth was district runner-up
in the 200m with a time of
26.6 seconds.
At the regional
championships, Smyth was
runner-up in the long jump

to the regional semifinals for
the first time since 1999.
The Indians, who finished
the year with a 19-9 record,
began their regional quest in
the District 6-3A tournament.
Pitcher Blake Lott allowed one
hit and struck out, 11 in a 2-0
win over Pierson Taylor in the
district semifinals, wrapping
up a regional berth. Tyler
Richardson had an RBI double
in that game that scored Jordan
Fogg in the third inning, while
Richardson scored the team's
second run in the fifth after a
single by Tyson Paulk.
Unfortunately, the Indians
could not win the district
championship, losing 8-2 to
Union County. It was a close
game for the most part, with
the Indians trailing 3-2
entering the top of the seventh.
A grand slam helped Union
pull away.
Richardson drew a walk and
later scored on a grounder by
Lott to tie the game at I-all in
the first. Lott scored his team's
second run on a sacrifice fly by
Andrew Secules.
The loss put the Indians on
the road for a regional
quarterfinal game, but they
were able to advance to the
semifinals with a 6-1 win over
Williston. Lott earned the win,
allowing six hits and one walk
while striking out six. ,
Paulk went 3-for-4 \\ith an
RBI single. thile "l-.'gg and
Cole-Belote "ere 2-b r-3 and
2-for-4, respectively.
The Indians' run came to an
end in the regional semifinals


with a 4-0 loss to Trinity Prep.
Secules pitched and allowed
only two hits, but one was a
double with the bases loaded
in the sixth inning. Two errors
in the inning also didn't help
Keystone's cause.

Softball team earns
semifinal berth, too
Despite finishing the year
with a losing record, the
softball team not only finished
second in its district, but
advanced to the regional
semifinals before losing 8-6 to
Dixie County.
Keystone earned a regional
playoff berth with its 10-0 win
over Pierson Taylor in the
District 6-3A semifinals. Tori
Jolley went 3-for-3 with three
RBI in that win, while Sam
Sibley was 3-for-4 with two
doubles, a triple and an RBI.
Jessica Knight drove in two
runs, finishing 2-for-4 with a
double.


Mistakes cost the Indians in
the district championship
game. Interlachen scored two
unearned runs in heading
Keystone a 3-2 loss. Kim
Russell, who was 2-for-3, had
an RBI double in the sixth that
scored Courtney Casas, while
Knight, who was 2-for-4, had
an RBI single in the seventh.
The Indians went on the
road and got a big win over
Trinity Catholic in a regional
quarterfinal game. Michelle
Houser drove in five runs to
help the Indians win 11-2.
Houser went 4-for-5 and had
three doubles. Sibley was a
perfect 3-for-3, while Ashley
Cirigliano went 2-for-3. Casas
had two RBI.
Pitchers Rachel Rothwell
and Lindsey Harp combined to
allow just three hits.
Keystone made its regional
semifinal game against Dixie
County interesting late, but fell
in the end 8-6.


'07


Dixie held an 8-2 lead when
Knight had an RBI double and
Jolley an RBI single. The
Indians then pulled to within
8-6 when Sibley and Russell
scored on errors.
Jolley finished the game 2-
for-3, while Russell was 2-for-
4.
Keystone ended the season
with a 13-15 record.

Soccer teams extend
their seasons as well
Keystone's first team in
2007 to earn a regional berth
was the girls' soccer team,
which was the runner-up in
District 5-3A.
The Indians had an easy 5-0
win over Crescent City in the
district semifinals, getting two
goals each from Emily Jones
and Tysee Williams. Julie
Campbell also scored, while
Keystone got two assists from

Union baseball team provides highlight from '07


The following is a look back
at the teams and individuals
who won championships at the
district, regional or state
levels, or who qualified to
participate in regional or state
competitions in 2007.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Union County High School
was able to "have a regional
presence in several sports in
2007, but the baseball team did
so by capturing the District 6-
3A championship.
The Tigers not only won
their district, but finished the
year with 22 wins-their most
since going 26-4 in 1977. Plus,
their head coach, Terry
Stroemer, was honored for
achieving 500 career wins by
having the school's field
named after him.
It proved to be a special
season for Stroemer as he
watched his team win its first
district championship in four
years and just its. second in
more than 20 years.
For that accomplishment to
happen, the Tigers first had to
dispatch of Interlachen in the
district semifinals. Kaleb
Windham hit a two-run home
run in helping Union win 7-2.
An error in the third inning
allowed Union to score two
runs and tie the game at 2-all.
Windham then homered,
followed by Kyle Parrish's
RBI single, which capped a
five-run inning.
Zeke Scaff had an RBI
single later in the game.
Pitcher Brett Maddox
allowed seven hits, but just
three after the third inning. He
struck out five batters.
The next game was Tyler
iOsteeni's turn to shine on the
mound, while Windham hit a
two-out grand slam in the
Tigers' 8-2 win over Keystone
Heights in thee district
championship game.
Osteen allowed Just three
hits-all of which occurred
during the first three innings.
The game was 3-2 entering
the seventh. Maddox was
intentionally walked to load
the bases, bringing Windham
up to bat. Windham was hitless
in his previous three at-bats,
but he cleared the fence and

TIPS FOR PROPERTY MANAGEMENT


You've undoubtedly been
hearing and reading about
the "subprime lending crisis"
hitting the real estate indus-
try. The bottom line for buy-
ers is that it may be more
difficult to secure a mortgage
in this atmosphere. It fol-
lows that demand for rentals
may increase.
That rising demand has
encouraged many people to
consider the benefits of,
becoming a landlord, or resi-
dential property manager.
Some have donned that hat
because they've been unable
to sell and needed a tenant,
while some are actively buy-
ing properties at lower prices
and looking to profit from
rental income.
In either case, consider a
few tips before entering this
type of venture. First, don't
necessarily expect to regain


your entire investment. Be
careful not to overpay for a
property, and also take care
not to underestimate the cost
of repairs and maintenance,
which will likely have a
large impact on your bottom
line.
Two important people to
hire: a property manager and
an accountant. A manager
will have knowledge of local
ordinances and proper pric-
ing, as well as how to locate
responsible clients. An *
accountant, on the other
hand, will have knowledge
of tax breaks, write-offs, and
deductions that will help you
meet your financial goals.
Step one may be contact-
ing an agent or broker with
experience handling or even
managing rental properties.
Help ensure success with
careful planning and support.
