LETTER TO

THE EDITOR


Elections

supervisor

explains

Universal

Primary


Dear Editor,
I have been asked to explain
what the meaning of a
Universal Primary Contest.
If there is only one party
(either Democratic or
Republican) involved in a race,
it is called a Universal Primary
Contest and all affiliated
parties can vote in that race.
If there is more than one
party involved, then you can
only vote under your registered
party affiliation (Democratic
or Republican). Each race
must be looked at individually.
The Florida Statute reads,
"If all candidates for an office
have the same party affiliation
and the winner will have no
opposition in the general
election, all qualified electors,
regardless of party affiliation,
may vote in the primary
elections for that office."
If you have any questions, or
need more information, please
contact my office at (386) 496-
2236.
Sincerely,
Debbie Osborne, Union
County Supervisor of

CUTS

Continued from p. 1A

additional cuts this year, he
warns that next year could see
deeper cuts as much as 10
percent which would
equate to over $1 million.
Shockley indicated that the
budget cuts for this year were
handled without cutting any
funding from the classrooms.
Strategic planning initiatives
were cut along with travel
budgets and a few other
budgeted-items to make up for
the reduction.
"Superintendent Carlton
Faulk and the members of the
school board made it clear that
any and all budget cuts should
not impact monies directed to
the students," Shockley said.
Shockley further stated that
Florida is in a difficult position
right now due to economic
conditions, and it does not


appear that monies will be
available next year or maybe
even the year after that to
provide an education budget
allowing for any growth.
In addition, the Amendment
1 tax cut that was approved in
January will cost the district
$270,000 in local tax revenue
next year. When pushing the
amendment, Crist stated that
the additional homestead
exemption bill would affect no
education dollars. However, he
has not shown where replacing
the money will come from.
The district has a sufficient
reserve at this point to prevent
cutting any programs next
year, but after that, the
situation could get much
worse.
Lake City Community
College has reported it will
end all of its athletic programs
at the end of this school year in
May, a decision that is
expected to cut $600,000 from
its annual $28.5 million
operating budget.
There are about 7,500


students enrolled at LCCC,
and less than 50 of those
participate in baseball, softball
or women's golf programs at
the school. Freshmen students
attending LCCC on athletic
scholarships will be allowed to
return for another school year
on a scholarship, but it is
expected many of the athletes
will likely transfer to another
college to continue sports
participation.


Faulk is adamant that the
very last thing he would do is
look into cutting any extra-
curricular school programs
such as agriculture, sports or
band, stating that the district
will continue to make do with
less funding.



FIRE

Continued from p. 1A
bedrooms and a bathroom -
was completely destroyed.


I-


American Red Cross
volunteer Mary Brown also'
showed up to assist the family
with emergency shelter, food
and clothing. Although the fire
department managed to put out
the fire without the entire
home being destroyed, three
bedrooms and a bathroom on
the left side of the home were
completely engulfed by fire.
What remains of the other half
of the house was covered with
soot.
Norman couldn't help but
become overwhelmed with
emotion when she returned to
the house the next day. She
tearfully recounted that the
house had once belonged to
her sister who passed away last
year. "Every memory of her
was in there. My kids'
bedrooms and
bathroom...everything they
had in their rooms is all
gone." I don't know what we
are going to do. "
What furniture did not burn
has sustained smoke damage.
Anything with fabric, such as
her sofa, cannot be cleaned.

Thinking optimistically,
Norman said it's to the credit
of the Union County fire
department that she even has
anything left to sort through.
A former 911 dispatcher in
Bradford County, Norman said
she couldn't have asked for
them to get there any faster
and put the fire out.
"It was amazing. It looked
like a Christmas parade on my
street, there were so many here
to help, and in the-middle of
the night like that, too," she
said.
Personnel responding to the
scene were
paramedic/firefighter Capt.
Rob Koch, EMT/firefighter
Capt. Mitch Andrews,
paramedic Chris Drum,
EMT/firefighter Ryan Lowery,
firefighters Ken Owens, Jim
Rooney, James Redmond,
Henry (Skip) Lecaine, Austin
Thomas, Josh Seay, Mary Ann
Redmond and Brian Jones.
Legler stated that he was
very impressed by the job done
by, the volunteer fire
department and the amount of


the home that was saved,
something not often seen in a
mobile home fire.
Norman said an application
for a rental home in Lake
Butler is being rushed through
for her family, even though
they are starting over with not
much to put in it. More than
anything, the family needs
beds, living room furniture and
clothing. Norman wears a size
12, her daughter wears a size
14 and her son is in need of
size 2x shirts and size 44
pants.
Although the Lake Butler
Volunteer Fire Department
was not called to the scene,
Chief Michael Banks has
stepped up and offered his fire
station as a designated drop-off
site for those who wish to
donate items to the family.
If you are interested in
helping out this displaced
family with food, furniture or
clothing, please drop off
donations at the fire
department or Lake Butler City
Hall, or contact Banks at (386)
496-3401.

student at Santa Fe
Community College, where
she is currently a member of

"I just think she's a great
asset to the community," wrote
Lawtey resident Judy Becker,
who is a teacher at Santa Fe.
Becker remembered
Browder as being a quiet
person when she first met her.
Browder confirmed that
assessment.
"I was definitely the girl
who never said anything in
class, who never spoke up,"
.Browder said.
It was an adjustment period
for her, having been home-
schooled during her. middle,
and high school years. Yet she
would eventually join the
student activities committee at
the SFCC Andrews Center and
serve as that committee's
president, -. ,

experience, more than
anything, really helped create
who she is today. She said it
was a "great leadership
opportunity" that taught her
and other ambassadors such
skills as public speaking and
communication, working with
others and organization.
"It is a great, great
program," Browder said.
As a member of student
government, Browder has been
a key figure in organizing a
couple of projects to raise
awareness of and help needy
people in Bradford and
Alachua counties.
One such project resulted in
renovations to the home of a
Gainesville family that
consisted of a single mother
and her two children. The
house was painted inside and
South and a new kitchen floor
and -concrete driveway .were
installed among other
improvements.
Browder said approximately
30 Santa Fe students came
together to do the work on a
weekend. Browder's father,
who works in construction,
also helped out, as did the city
of Gainesville, which was a
partner in the project.
It was the most hectic
weekend of her life, but also
"one of the most amazing
moments I've had," Browder
said. SFCC President Dr.
Jackson Sasser presented a
full-tuition scholarship to the
oldest of the two children who
lived at the home during the
ribbon-cutting ceremony
following the renovations, and
there were plenty of tears.
"It was amazing," Browder
said. "You see it on TV-
'Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition'-but when you see it
in real life and you see some of
the lives you've changed and
their reactions, it makes you
cry and it makes them cry."
Browder is currently
involved in is the "Empty
Bowls" project as a way of
raising awareness of hunger.
The SFCC ceramics


and young adults of our
presbytery has shown itself in
the positive impression she
leaves on her campers, youth
group, parents and church
leaders," Whitman wrote.
Corkhill wrote in her
nomination-support letter that
Browder's compassion makes
her a natural in fulfilling such
a role.
"This caring personality
translates into a special talent
working with children, which I
am confident will carry her in


her dream to become an
advocate for them," Corkhill
wrote.
Becker said Browder's
compassion has created a "true
Passion" for helping others.
"It's not like she rests on her
laurels," Becker said.
Browder will be recognized
at a luncheon today, March 20,
at the UF Hilton in Gainesville
along with Women of
Distinction honorees Teila
Pearson (Bradford County's


tax collector), Paige Beck,
Margaret Boonstra, Louise H.
Courtelis, Susan B. Spain and
Angela Terrell.
"I'm really and truly
honored to be around these
-ama'zing .women who have
done so much and are doing so
much right now," Browder
said.
The Women of Promise
award was established in 2006.

"Amanda is a tireless.
advocate for people in need
and has proven it time and
again," Kristin Corkhill, an
adviser with the SFCC
Welcome and Advisement
Center, wrote in a nomination-
support letter. "I can think of
no one more compassionate
about giving back to her
community."
Another way of giving back
to her community is by being
involved in her church- First
Presbyterian of Starke. She
serves as a Sunday school
teacher and is the youth
director.
"My major right now is
family, youth and consumer


sciences,". Browder said.
"With that degree, a youth
director-full time-in the
future, is- something that's a
possibility. I. figured I'd do a
little bit of it and see how it
is." ,.. -
Her-work with children isn't
confined to church. She also
works at the "Montgomery

Academies prepare students for health, construction


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford-Union Area
Career Technical Center has
initiated two new programs:
the Health Science Academy
and the Academy of Building
Construction Technology.
The academies are designed
to provide students with the
training required to
successfully secure careers in
the health field or the
construction trades, or
continue their educations in
these areas at the higher
education level.

These programs are
currently in progress, but will
officially come under the
academy title beginning with
the 2008-09 school year.
As stated by the Florida
Department of Education,
"Career academies are small,
.personalized learning
communities within a high
school that selects a subset of


students and teachers for a
two-, three-, or four-year span.
Students enter the academy
through a voluntary process;
they must apply and be
accepted with parental
knowledge and support."
Glenda Ruise, adult
education and community
education coordinator, said the
criteria the interested student
must meet involves academic
and conduct grades, as well as
a good attendance record.
Ruise further added that the
student will be asked to write a
"letter of intent."
The career academy,
according to FDOE, involves
teachers from different
subjects working together as a
team.
According to FDOE, "Staff
teams, who often share
common planning time, work
together to implement the key
features of the model and
provide students with exposure
to the career field. Students are
grouped together for several


periods every day with a core
group of teachers. This
promotes a family-like
atmosphere and results in close
student-teacher ties."
Furthermore, according to
FDOE, academies include the
essential elements of a small
learning community, a college-
prep curriculum with a career'
theme, and partnerships with
employers, the community and
higher education.
Students are eligible to
apply as they enter the ninth or
10 grades.

Health Science
As regards the Health
Science Academy, the program
integrates with the Santa Fe
Community College programs
for nursing, dentistry, allied
health science and emergency
medical services, allowing for
students to earn up to nine
hours of college credits while
still in high school, said Ruise.
The benefits of the Health

the future, clinical experience
and the opportunity to qualify
for Gold Seal Scholarships as
well as Health Occupation
Students of America.
Ruise emphasized that
students graduating from the
academy would find
themselves in a "high
wage/high demand" field,
with priority opportunities to
find employment in the
numerous Bradford and Union
County hospitals, clinics,
nursing homes and other
medical facilities.
Ruise said the approximate
salary range foi two of the
most popular jobs in Bradford
County would be $10.32 per
hour for certified nursing
assistant and $17.99 per hour
for licensed practical nurses.
The Health Science
Academy's instructors are
Cindy Zurfluh, RN, who has
23 years' nursing experience in
various area including acute
care, corrections, community,
home health and teaching; and
Teresa Jackson, BSN, RN,
who has 25 years' of nursing
experience in various settings
including acute care, home
health care and education.

Building Construction
Technology
According to literature
supplied by the Bradford-
Union Area Career Technical
Center, students accepted into
the academy will spend their
first year learning
employability skills, shop and
worksite safety, tool selection
and construction terminology.
Students will learn basic
carpentry, masonry, electricity
and plumbing.
The curriculum used will be
that of the National Center for
Construction Education and
Research. It was developed
and endorsed by leaders in the
construction industry and
aligns with the performance
standards of the Florida
Department of Education.
After completion of their
first year, students will choose
to specialize in either carpentry
or masonry. Their remaining
two or three years will be spent
in their area of specialty.


Upon graduation, students
will receive, along with their
diplomas, a National Center
for Construction Eduction and
Research card.
The card will give potential
employers access to records at
the center simply by scanning
the card. This will enable the
employer to see and identify a
student's areas of training and
certification. Having the
advantage of being part of a
national registry, this
information will be accessible

Keystone's Boettcher, Taylor accept football offers


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
They were productive and
received many accolades while
playing in high school. Now
Keystone Heights High School
seniors Brandon Boettcher and
Greg Taylor will get their
chance to do so at the
collegiate level after signing
letters-of-intent during a
ceremony at the school on
March 12.
Taylor, who put together his
second straight season as a
1,000-yard rusher and earned
all-state honorable mention,
will be attending New Mexico
Military Institute in Roswell.
Boettcher, one of the linemen
who helped block the way for
Taylor, will be traveling to
Montgomery Alabama to
attend Huntingdon University.
"I'm really happy," said
Boettcher, who was a second-
team all-state selection as a
junior and a first-team


selection (his past season. "My
whole goal during my high
school career was to be able to
play college ball."
Keystone head coach Chuck
Dickinson said Boettcher is
one of the strongest linemen
he's coached at Keystone.
Boettcher benches 395 pounds
and has a clean and jerk of 325
pounds.
Dickinson said if Boettcher,
who is 5-11,290 pounds, was
6-1 or 6-2, he probably
would've gotten offers from
bigger schools.
"He's probably one of the
best linemen we've had during
my tenure here," Dickinson
said.
Boettcher realizes his height
prevented him from receiving
some offers, but he is excited
about the opportunity that
awaits him at Huntingdon. For
starters, he will join former
teammate Brandon McGuire, a
2007 Keystone graduate who


also received an athletic
scholarship from the Alabama
school.
"I figured it would be easier
to go to a college atmosphere
knowing someone else who
can show me around,"
Boettcher said.
The main reason Boettcher
is excited about going to
Huntigdon is the fact the
school offers his intended
major- pre-med.
"That's what I looked for
first of all, not winning records
or anything," Boettcher said.
Dickinson said Taylor
possesses the attributes to play
for a Division I school, but he
was a late qualifier
academically.
However, Dickinson
believes Taylor will still get a
chance to play at the Division I
level. The New Mexico junior
college, he said, is in a good
location for Taylor to be able
to attract interest from bigger

Institute. He is joined by his aunt, Sandy Taylor (left), and his mother, Flora Moody.


schools, especially those in
Texas.
"He should get a good look
and have a chance to play at
the next level," Dickinson said.
"It's a good opportunity for
him."
Taylor wants that chance.
He said he preferred to play
running back at the collegiate
level (he also had experience
as a defensive back in high
school), but admitted it would
have been tough to turn down
a bigger school if coaches
wanted him to play somewhere
else.
"I wanted to stay at running
back, but if a big college
wanted to get a hold of me and
wanted to move me to
linebacker, I probably
would've taken that,".he said.
He will play running back at
New Mexico Military Institute,
which operates out of a
wishbone offense, which
should make for an easy


transition for Taylor,
Dickinson said. Taylor, who
gained 1,401 yards this past
season, is a tough runner who
always seems to get positive
yardage, Dickinson said.
"He's hard to bring down,"
Dickinson said. "He's always
going forward. When he gets
hit, he usually always gets
another yard or two."
As good a runner as Taylor
is, Dickinson said it's possible
he will come out of New
Mexico at a different position.
Dickinson said Taylor has
good hands, so he can easily
envision him as a tight end/H-
back. receiver if he adds
another inch or two and 40
pounds to his 6-3, 205-pound
frame.
"That's why I say he's an
asset," Dickinson said. "He's
going in as a running back, but
who knows what he'll come
out as?"


Boettcher made his mark as
an offensive lineman at
Keystone, but Huntingdon
coaches are interested in
playing him on the defensive
side of the ball at nose guard
because of a switch from a 4-3
to a 3-4 defense, he said. It's
an opportunity he's looking
forward to.
"I love defense," Boettcher
said.
Boettcher and Taylor both'
said it's hard right now to
imagine what it would be like,
to step out onto the field as a
college football player for the
first time. Boettcher said, "It'd
be unbelievable," while Taylor
said he'd "have butterflies like
crazy."
. Those first-game jitters
surely won't last long as each
player finds himself doing just
what. he wants to do-continue
his playing career.
"It's going to be fun,"
Taylor said.

ASK-MIKE,



READY FOR SOME GOOD NEWS?


Some financial experts
have labeled 2007's market
as the "roulette economy."
As we all know, whatever
goes up must come down,
but the nice thing about real
estate is that whatever goes
down.always comes back
upward again (much like
stocks work).
A healthier market is
anticipated in 2008, as Wall
Street cleans up the lending
mess and the pressure cook-
er of home demand releases
its top. While the national
average of home prices
declined between one and
two percent in 2007, that's
peanuts compared to how
much homes appreciated in
the previous years. And
many markets are appreciat-
ing still.
Keep in mind that
"national" statistics for real


estate mean about as much
as a forecasted-high temper-
ature for the entire nation.
Consumers get skittish
when they hear that 40% of
foreclosures are due to
doubtful subprime loans, but
it's important to put that in
perspective, because those
loans only constitute about
10% of all mortgages.
As the lending industry
stabilizes and interest rates
rise only slightly, buyers
who are ready to purchase
will discover that housing is
still the best investment out
there.
Ask a real estate agent to
monitor new listings, selling
times and final sales prices,
and then to advise you when
conditions are right to either
buy or sell. 2008 should be
a year of opportunity in the
real estate industry.

Tornadoes
bounce back
from loss to
defeat Clay
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


Baker County pitcher
Brandon Griffis kept the
Bradford baseball team
winless in District 3-4A, but
the Tornadoes rebounded from
that loss by defeating future
district opponent Clay 4-1 on
March 17 in Green Cove
Springs.
"My goodness, it was night
and day," Bradford head coach
Lamar Waters said when
comparing his team's
performance in the two games.
Waters said he felt the
Tornadoes (3-8, 0-5 in District
3 prior to March 18) did not
play with much confidence in
a 10-0 loss to Baker on March
13 in Glen St. Mary. Two of
Baker's first three batters
reached on errors, while
Bradford's pitchers struggled
with walks.
Wildcats pitcher Griffis had
no such problems, striking out
11 and giving up only two
hits-singles to John Ryan
Palladino and Trey Winkler in
the fourth inning.
"Their pitcher did a great
job," Waters said.
Against Clay, Bradford
pitchers Josh Williams and
Ryan McKeown combined to
allow one hit, while the
defense turned in a solid effort
that included turning four
double plays.
"You do that kind of stuff
and you can definitely win
some ball games," Waters said.
Bradford's Jernard Beard,
the only multiple hitter of the
game (he was 2-for-3), hit a
line-drive home run over the
left-field fence with one out in
the first inning to give the
Tornadoes an early 1-0 lead.
David Duncan added a two-
run homer in the fourth, which
followed a double by
Palladino.
Clay took advantage of a
couple of walks in the bottom
of the fourth to score its lone
run, but McKeown entered the
game in relief'of Williams and
prevented the Blue Devils
from scoring more.
McKeown pitched 1-2-3
innings in the fifth and
seventh, while being able to
pitch out of a jam in the sixth.
Bradford's last run came in
the fifth. Zac'Coe hit a lea"d-!ff
single and advanced to third on
a passed ball and a ball put
into play by Charles Jones.
Coe crossed home plate on a
single by Alex Orozco.

despite a
strong outing
from Parrish
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Freshman Seth Parrish had a
standout performance on the
mound, but it did not result in
a win for the Union County
baseball team, which lost 2-0
to host Taylor County on
-March 17 in Perry.
Parrish gave up five hits and
one walk, while striking out
five. Both of Taylor County's
runs were unearned.
"That was hard to swallow,"
Union head coach Brian
Tomlinson said.
The Tigers (7-6) faced
Taylor's best pitcher, but he
didn't come at Union with
overpowering speed. However,
he limited the Tigers to five
hits. .:;
S"He was tble' to pick his
spots," Tomllins'on' aid. "In the
gate of iasebali, that's all that
matters "
Jake Prevatt did manage to
go, 2-for-3 with a double for
Union. .' :
The Tigers had:a chance to
at least tie, the game in the
seventh 'inning,; but couldn't
capitalize on ru liners reaching
second and third oh errors with
no outs..
Union travels to Pierson on
Friday,., March: 2,1, to play
District 6-3A opponent Taylor
at- 7 p.m. The. Tigers are
currently 3-2 in district play.
On Tuesday, March 25, the
Tigers host Santa Fe at 7 p.m.

Earlier results:

UC 10 Interlachen 0
Zeke Scaff came through on
the mound and at the plate as
the Tigers handed previously
undefeated Interlachen a 10-0
loss in a district game on
March 11 in Lake Butler.
Scaff pitched all six innings


to improve his record to 3-0.
He gave up four hits and no
walks.
"He didn't stop there,"
Tomlinson said.
At the plate, Scaff was 3-for-
4 with two triples, three RBI
and three runs scored.
Union's offense got on track
right off the bat, scoring five
runs in a first inning in which
the first seven batters all
reached base. Chance Howell
hit a lead-off double, while
Scaff drove in two runs with a
single.
Prevatt also had a two-run
single in the inning, while
Brandon Griffis hit an RBI
single.
Prevatt, who was 2-for-3
with three RBI, capped the
scoring with an RBI double in
a four-run sixth.
Other multiple-hit batters
included Mason Dukes, who
was 2-for-3 with two RBI, and
Justin Hanson, who was 2-for-
4.
Every batter but one had at
least one hit as the Tigers
finished with 13 overall.

UC 12 Newberry 7
Kaleb Windham hit a grand
slam as the Tigers defeated
visiting Newberry 12-7 on
March 13.
Windham, who was 3-for-4
with four RBI, hit his home
run in the sixth-one of two
five-run innings for the Tigers,
who had 12 total hits.
Union fell behind 2-0, but
pushed five runs across in the
second. A double by Windham
led off the inning, which also
featured an RBI double from
Griffis and an RBI single from
Howell.
In the sixth, Griffis led off
with a single, while Kris
Bracewell, attempting to bunt
him over, also reached when
his bunt was misplayed.
Hanson singled to load the
bases, setting the stage for
Windham's grand slam. Dukes
later followed with a triple.
Griffis finished the game 2-
for-3, while Hanson and
Howell were each 2-for-4.
Thomas Cason pitched five-
and-two-thirds innings to earn
the win. He gave up five hits
and two earned runs, while
striking out nine to even his
record at 2-2.
