Times Staff Writer


For the 2008-2009 fiscal,
year, the Union County Board
of County Commissioners is
working with a total budget
of $5.1 million in its general
fund after trimming more than
$375,000 compared to last
year's budget.
"Almost every state revenue
went down," said Union
County Finance Director Donna
Jackson.
Jackson said that without a
doubt, if not for receiving a
fiscallyconstrainedcontribution
from the state amounting to just
over $1 million, the county
would be in even worse shape.
A big revenue cut came with
the passing of Amendment 1.
Although it may have served
to increase the amount of tax
homeowners can exempt,
it decreased the county's
tax revenue by more than
$206,000.
Prior to Amendment 1, the
first $25,000 of a property's
value was exempt from ad
valorem taxes. Union County
Property ,Appraiser Steve
Saunders' office explains that
under the new law, there is
no additional exemption for
property with a value of up to
$50,000, however, beginning
with an assessed "value oii
$50,001. up to $75,000, the
homestead exemption will
increase dollar-for-dollar with
the increase in the value of the
property.
For example, a property with
a $50,000 assessed value ivill
receive a homestead exemption
of $25,000, a property with
a $60,000 assessed value will
receive a homestead exemption
of $35,000 and a property with
a $75,000 assessed value or
higher will receive a homestead
exemption of $50,000.
The maximum homestead
exemption a property can
receive is $50,000. With a loss
of $206,000 in ad valorem tax
revenue, only $75,129 was

from the public works building

The city willingly accepted
the offer, saying the land could
be used to build a complete

A 2001 appraisal of' the
DeVoe/Maines property gave
the estimated market value of
$69,500,. however, an appraisal
conducted by Lee Hardenbrook
in December of 2007 gave the
property an estimated market
value of $390,000.
Maines and DeVoe signed a
quit claim deed for the property
on Dec. 28, 2007.
In researching a grant to build
a fire station on the property,
City Manager John Berchtold
said that the city appears to
be eligible for a partial grant/
partial loan for construction of
a fire station.
Until a pre-application is
submitted for approval, it is
unknown how much would be
a grant and how much would.
be a loan. Any loan portion
would be required to be paid
over 40 years at a two percent
interest rate.
Bailey Bishop and Lane
agreed to assist with the
requirements for the grant/loan
submittal for a fee of $1,500.

Commissioners
decide against
purchasing lakefront
property
After consideration, city
.-commissioners chose not to
take Paul Walker up on his offer
to sell his lakefront property.
Last month, Walker
approached the board offering
.to sell his 2.92 acres of land,
which has a 300-foot lake
frontage and a 1,200-square-
foot house in the front corner
of the property. Walker was
asking a negotiable $300,000
for the property and the city
commissioners had requested
time to investigate and consider
his offer before he placed the
property on the public market.
A report from Berchtold
shows the just value of the
property to be $75,000, but he
estimates an appraisal would
show a current market value
price of around $220,000.
Berchtold also stated that, on
behalf of the city, Suwannee
River Water Management
District was looking at the
option of funding the purchase
under the Florida Forever
Program. However, Berchtold
pointed out several negative
reasons the city should refrain
From investing in the land.
The majority of the property
(97 percent) is located in a
flood plain. The city would
have a huge expense in raising


He underwent a five-hour
surgery, performed by Osborne,
to repair the damaged hand.
"The thumb was nearly
amputated. The tendons and
arterieswerecompletely severed
and the bone was broken," said
Dr. Osborne. "The tendon was
completely pulled away from
the muscle, so I had to go up in
the forearm to pull the tendon
back down."
Dopson remained in the
hospital for a few days, to
receive post-surgical treatment.
"The treatment was excellent,


the land above the flood plain.
Furthermore, Berchtold said it
is not wise to put any permanent
structures on land that is prone
to flooding and said he doubts
the city would ever be able to
obtain grants to build on the
.'propemrr .
tn addition, the property
is separated from the city's
Lakeside Park by the Butler
Seafood and Grille Restaurant;
meaning park patrons would be
required to cross the parking lot
of the restaurant to get from the
main park to whatever would
be placed on the property.
Berchtold also pointed out that
now is not the best time for the
city to buy property, especially
considering the relatively high
asking price of $300,000 when
the property's topography
offers very limited use.
Commissioners Scott Cason
and Brantley Crawford, who
were originally in favor of
purchasing the land, agreed
aloud that now is not a good
time for the city to be getting
into such an endeavor. "My
view is, right now, I don't see
the city spending that kind of
money," Cason said.

Property appraiser's
office says city
doesn't own dock
Bacl when the city was
obtaining the permit to scoop
up the muck and add beach
sand at Lake Butler Lake, it
was discovered through a title
search that the city was not
listed at the property appraiser's
office as the owner of the city
dock. Records showed Plum
Creek as the owners of the
dock stretching across a portion
of Lake Butler Lake behind the
Lakeside Community Center.
Berchtold said he was
surprised tofind that PIum Creek
was still listed as the owner
of the dock iand eventually
found an old deed showing
Plum Creek as relinquishing
ownership to the city of Lake
Butler a number of years ago-
but apparently, the deed was
never properly recorded.


they did everything and more,"
said Cathy Dopson, Dopson's
wife. "They were very
considerate and helped take care
of his needs. They brought him
anything he needed throughout
the night."
Once the bone, muscle and
blood vessels in Dopson's hand
heal, he will begin rehabilitation
to try to regain the use of his
thumb.
"His co-workers really
handled the accident efficiently,
otherwise he would have lost
his thumb," said Osborne.


In the meantime, Berchtold
had already contacted Plum
Creek's Greg Galpin with his
findings and a new quit claim
deed was also forwarded to the
city for legal recording.
Berchtold said he had no idea
' how or why this happened, bu't ;
admitted this took place before .
his time as city manager.
"Either way, the matter has
been cleared up and Plum
Creek had no problem helping
get things straight," Berchtold
said.

City seeks to annex
several properties
There are a number of
properties being provided with
water, sewer, and/or garbage
by the city of Lake Butler that
are actually located outside the
city limits.
There are 60 properties
located on mainly N.E. 8tn
Avenue, N.E. 9t Aenue, S.W.
11 Street, S.E.,8 Court and
N.E. 3d Street that the city
would like to annex.
Annexation can be done
by three means: voluntarily,
by referendum (vote) or by
legislative action.

Berchtold suggested that a
citizens' committee be created
to help address the issue with
residents who are contiguous to
the city. He also recommended
Commissioner Ray Crawford
to serve on the committee as
the commissioner liaison.
By annexing, residents can
save the monthly surcharges
they are currently being billed
for receiving their utilities from
the city.
In addition, at no cost to
residents, Florida Power and
Light will install street lights
along the dark roads that will
be paid for each month by the
city. Berchtold said another
added security feature for these
homeowners (and a discount
on homeowner's insurance) is
the addition..of fire hydrants
that are available to properties
within the city limits, but do
not extend outwards through
the county.

Yes to skate

park, but not

at historical

site
Dear Editor:
One of the latest sports in our
little town is skateboarding.
When I was about 10 years
old, Santa Claus brought me
a pair of roller skates. I could
not wait to put them over
my shoes, strap them around
my ankles, and put the clamp
on each side of the front of
the shoes that was tightened
with a key to keep them
from coming off. Skating
was a wonderful sport on the
sidewalks of Lake Butler,
especially the hills on Lake
Street and West Main Street.

Years later, there was a real
nice skating rink (presently
the Butler Seafood and Grille
Restaurant) near the lake. It
was a blessing for many years
for young and old to enjoy.
Today, the latest ,sport for
teenagers is the blue building
at the park. They jump from
seats and tables onto the
cement floor to have fun
sliding down the center aisle.
There are several other places
around town where there is a


hill to roll down.
I saw the need for a special
place for this sport, but the
question was, "where?" Many
sites have been suggested to
build a permanent place, but
one place it does not need to
be is at the historical site near
"Rails to Trails" in downtown
Lake Butler.

Many months. ago, the
Union County Historical
Society, in cooperation with
the city fathers, made plans
for this site to be used, for
historical exhibits. The first
item moved to this site was
an old 1900 corncrib from
Dekle's Mill Pond area and
it has drawn much attention.
Now we are about to see the
reproduction of the original
railroad depot to be used as
a welcome station for people
passing through our little
town.
It will have restrooms,
vending machines and places
to rest and enjoy the scenery.
The next project on the agenda
is to work with the city in
moving an old cane grinder
with a large syrup kettle from .
a farm in Union County to this
historical location. We also
hope to have an old wagon or
two and early farm equipment
added to the site.

I am certainly in favor of
the skateboard facility, but
please find a more appropriate
site for this needed sport and
leave the railroad property for
future historical use.

Heated debate over city raises


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer


City employee raises were
the topic of a special budget
meeting called by Mayor
Jimmy Beasley on Aug. 26 and
was again the main topic of the
city's second tentative budget
meeting on Sept. 15.
City employee raises were
originally proposed at four
percent plus a $600 supplement
to cover health insurance
premium increases.
A handful of city employees
attended the second budget
meeting that began to unfold
when Commissioner Brantley
Crawford said that he had
concerns with the amount in
the city's contingency fund.
A contingency fund is money
set aside in the event of an
emergency.
"It went from $80,000 to
close to $20,000 now,"
Crawford said. "Mr. Berchtold
explained it to me, but I still
have a problem with it."
Berchtold said the council
can consider one means of
replenishing the fund with the
revenue it stands to gain from
a contract with the Department
of Corrections.

Each year, the city renews
its contract with DOC for
RMC's use of city water and
sewer. When Berchtold read
the contract, he noticed that in
addition to paying the city for
215,000-gallons of water each
day, it also stipulates that DOC
will pay for overages in water
usage at the prison facility.
After sharing the information
with the board a few months
ago, Berchtold had water
meters installed and reported
that RMC is actually averaging
between 380,000 to 400,000
gallons of'water each day.
"When we met with DOC
officials and told them we
wanted to begin exercising our
right to charge them for any
monthly overages in water use,
they didn't have a problem with
it," Berchtold said. "It's been in
the contract all along."
Berchtold said the city stands
to gain at least $164,000 a


Hay and Farm
Field Day

canceled
The extension agents from
northeast Florida want all
farmers to know that the Hay
Field Day that was scheduled
for this Friday, Sept. 28, at WW
Ranch has been canceled..
Excessive rainfall has made
the hayfields impossible to
work and demonstrate the
equipment, much less park
the usual 150 who planned to
attend.
The Northeast Florida Beef
and Forage Group of extension
agents extend their regrets and
look forward to presenting
farmers with a Hay Field Day
in early summer of 2009. For
more information about hay
production, contact the Union
County Extension Office at
(386) 496-2321.

year by billing DOC for its
accurate water use. Berchtold,
who started his position as city
manager in September of last
year, said it is unknown to him
why this was never done in the
past, and he only became aware
of it when it came time to
renew the contract with DOC.
Commissioner Scott Cason
accused Berchtold-of bringing
up the information in an attempt
to sway the board to go along
with giving employee raises.
In his defense, Berchtold
said, "Sir, I think the other
gentlemen on the board can tell
you I personally chase down
any amount owed to us."
Cason changed the subject
and asked how many city
employees drove city vehicles
home. Hardy Clyatt answered
that he, the fire chief and
whoever was on call drove
home city vehicles.
"Am I wrong to think you
can group those together?"
Cason asked. "I think it's a perk
and adds to your salary without
saying so."
"We are each on call 24-
hours a day," Clyatt said.
Cason said he worked for
DOC on call for years and
never got a state vehicle to
drive home.

"Yes sir, but we're not
DOC," Clyatt said. "Do you
want to take responsibility
for answering to DEP for a
(sewage) overflow when in
order to answer a call, we have
to drive to town to get a city
vehicle then go to where the
problem is?"
'I didn't say I was gonna
stop it," Cason said.
"You called it perks, so let's
see just how far you want to
go," said Clyatt.
Cason moved on to reading
aloud a compiled list of nearby
city government agencies
showing their current positions
on pay raises for the 2008-2009
fiscal year. He, along with the
rest of the board, was provided
with the list prepared by Kevin
Verro, an analyst with the city
of High Springs.

.LB Idoking for

volunteers
The city of Lake Butler is
looking for volunteers to
serve on a committee to assist
with providing information
to property owners who may
be interested in having their
property(ies) annexed into the
city.
These are properties located
in Union County where the
city provides water, sewer or


living-allowance, or COI.A,
plus up to five-percent merit
pay raise for its employees.
Archer, Chiefland, Hawthorne,
Macclenny, Starke and Waldo
are providing employees with a
three-percent annual raise. Live
Oak is providing a five-percent
COLA, Cross City is providing
hourly paid employees with
a $500 bonus and Palatka is
absorbing the increase in health
premiums for its employees.
Citizen Tom Riherd asked if
the base pay for all the cities
was comparable. He was told
that is was not. Cason asked
what the county (Union) was
proposing for its employees.
Mayor Beasley, also a
county employee, said it was
three percent plus absorbing
the majority of the increase in
health insurance premiums.
Cason again changed the
subject and wanted to know if
they could put a cap on how
much employees can spend.
Clyatt answered and said,
"It's already there, $6,000."
Cason then jumped to
asking if paving Lake Avenue
was included in the budget.
Berchtold turned to the page of
the city budget provided to all
commissioners and read that
there is a $102,000 allocation
for the repaving of Lake
Avenue.
Before a motion was made to
vote on the matter, Riherd had
addressed the board saying that
he felt the employees earned
the originally proposed four-
percent increase.
"Give these guys some
consideration. You've got a
real good workforce and I hate
to see them go elsewhere over
some small amount," Riherd
said.
Bill McGill said that he
thought the city employees
were a good bunch of people.
"I don't know what they make,
but I think they earned the
raise," McGill said.
Finally, Commissioner
Brantley Crawford made a
motion to give the employees
only a three-percent raise
without the $600 insurance
supplement and Cason seconded
it. The motion carried 4-1, with
Beasley casting the dissenting

vote.
Commissioner Ray Crawford
then made a motion to exempt
the city commissioners from the
three-percent raise, seconded
by Scott Cason. The motion
received a 5-0 vote.
"Now, concerning yours,"
Cason said, pointing to
Berchtold, "any action on that
Mr. Maines?" he asked the city
attorney.
As pointed out in the last city
meeting, Berchtold's contract
with the city provides him
with a three-percent increase
irregardless of the board's
action for its other employees.
Beasley then addressed the
city employees in attendance
and said, "1 want you employees
to know that I think you deserve
the four-percent plus the $600
supplement," a statement for
which he received a collective
"thank you, mayor" from the
employees in attendance.

The four-percent raise for
employees in the tentative
budget amounted to $11,376
for the entire staff. At three
percent, the total cost to the
city for raises will instead be
$8,533, an annual difference
of $2,843. What it boils down
to is roughly $12-$25 a week
per employee, depending upon
their current salary.

Inunderstandingtheemployee
insurance supplement, because
of the high cost and low number
of employees, city workers
are not provided with health
insurance. Instead, they receive
a $4,200 annual supplement to
obtain health insurance. What
Berchtold had proposed, (but
was rejected by the board), was
an additional $600 supplement
per employee to meet any
premium increases, stating
that it was costing the county
around $6,000 per employee
each year and will likely go
up at least $600 more for the
renewal year. According to
the county's new budget, it is,
actually costing them $7,200
per employee annually.
The city commissioners are
required by law to hold a public
meeting on Monday, Sept. 29,
to approve the budget.

Worthington


Springs has


rich history
(Information for this history was taken from an article
written by Gail D. Livingston for the 110th anniversary
edition of the Telegraph. Much of the information came from
an original history of the spring, penned by Dorothy Seay, a
longtime resident of the area.)
Worthington Springs, located six miles-southwest of Lake
Butler, was a part of Bradford County before the county was
divided in 1921 and the town found itself in Union County.
The earliest history of the town is not known for certain, but it
is generally accepted that one of the first people to settle there
was Samuel Worthington who arrived with his family in 1821
or 1822.
Originally from Cheshire, England, the Worthingtons arrived
in America at Newberry, S.C., and moved to St. Marys, Ga.
They later relocated to Worthington Springs in what was then
New River County. Most of the land was government-owned
and Worthington established a farm there.
The town of Worthington (not yet designated as Worthington
Springs) was established in 1825, but was, ironically, not
named for Samuel Worthington. It was named for William
G.D. Worthington of Maryland, who was acting governor of
east Florida at the time.
Samuel was a farmer, as were most early settlers in Florida.
His family had grown cotton in South Carolina and it was a
boast of the time that the Worthington family could grow more
cotton per acre than anyone else. The family grew wealthy on
long staple cotton.
Samuel and his family were forced to flee Worthington during
the Seminole Indian Wars.. They went to Old Newmanville,,
which was a settlement near present-day Alachua. During
their exile in Newmanville, Samuel's wife died and was buried
there.
When the wars ended, Samuel and the remainder of his
family moved back to their land at Worthington. There were
no stores for miles around, so he decided to establish one. He
was the victim of circumstance, however. He sent a young
man in a wagon off with money to purchase supplies from
Georgia. Whether the young man met robbers or some other
misadventure-or whether he merely absconded with the
money and the wagon-is not known, but he was never heard
from again.
The town did not become known as Worthington Springs
until the spring was found, quite by accident, by a group of
Worthington children playing.in the area.
The story goes that children playing near the river found a
trickle of water coming out from under the roots of a big oak
tree. The children dug a hole and it quickly filled with water.
They were so excited about this discovery, that they ran home
and told their father, Samuel. He dug the hole larger, forming
the original pool. A little after that time, the governor renamed
the town Worthington Springs.
Samuel and his family relocated to Otter Creek some years
later, but the popularity of the spring had been born. Mr. and
Mrs. William Lastinger moved to Worthington Springs from
Quitman, Ga., and rented the Samuel Worthington property.
They soon discovered the spring and Mrs. Lastinger had her
slaves dig out the pool even more. A boardwalk was put up
around the pool so people could swim and relax there.
In 1853 Tommy Jones bought the property after he had
already lived there under homesteading laws. He married
.lane Wonrhington and they had two children, Mary and Jesse.
Captain Green Hodges. a CivilWar soldier returnedto ci\ illiV,
life, and his ife bought the land, but he \\as killed in the latter
part of the 1860s by a man named Kennedy:
A relative of his, Jeff Hodges, owned one of the first

BY TERESA STONE-
IRWIN
Tines Staff Writer
The last time the Lake Butler
chapter won a national title was
with its 2002 poultry judging
team.
This year, there are 24
students on four teams who
will be seeking a national title
as they represent the Lake
Butler FFA at the national

parliamentary procedure and
agriculture issues.

issues team that won first place
in the state are Amy Emery,
Lillie Emmelhainz, Danielle
Giebeig, Joey O'Hern and
Kenzie Jones.
This is the third state
championship win for the
Lake Butler senior chapter
FFA agriculture issues team.


The students on this team
have worked to develop an
understanding of agricultural
issues by researching specific
topics and creating ways to help
the public better understand
both sides through a 10-minute
skit. This winning team's topic.
was on immigration issues.
Students on ihe state's first-
place food science team are
Robin Thomas, Tyler Stone,
Clint Williams, Julie Redding
and Jordan Williams.
Members of'this team are all
original members of Florida's
very first high school food
science class that was piloted
at Union County High School.
The FFA's first-in-state
poultry judging team members
are Jay Norman, Jared Freeman,
James Carter, Amanda Parrish,
Victoria King and Brandi
Thornton. Norman, Freeman
and Carter were the three
highest scoring individuals in
the state competition.
The senior FFA poultry team
has won first place in 15 out of
their last 18 state competitions,
advancing them to nationals.
Last year, the team came in
fourth place in the nation.


The first-place poultry
judging team trying for a
national title are James
Carter, Jay Norman,
Jared Freeman, Amanda
Parrish, Victoria King
and Brandi Thornton
with Agriculture Adviser
Brittany Parrish.

Team members of the state's
number one parliamentary
procedure team are Lillie
Emmelhainz, Zach Sweat,
Aaron Dukes, Caleb Williams,
Connie Driggers, Emily Brown
and Dayle Giebeig.

served as postmaster. Some of

be found in records of the town

The spring remained
pretty much a retreat
for family and friends--
although growing in
popularity all the time-
until the summer of 1895
when a spring house was
built. The pool was accessed
from a square hole in the
floor and a shack served as
a dressing room.
A wall divided the spring
into two parts, one reserved
for men and the other for
women. It was considered
improper for men and
women to swim in the
same area in those days,
so bathing in the water
was strictly gender-biased.
The hours in which men
and women c buld avail
themselves of the water
were also strictly enforced.
When it was the women's
turn, a woman's boniet was
hung on a high pole to warn
the men away. A straw hat
on the pole indicated it was
the men's turn. The spring
drew people from miles
around who believed spring
water to be very healthful and
to even have curative powers
for a vast array of ailments.
The IF. Lamb family bought
the property around 1906 and
he had the pool concreted with
a deep section and shallow
section for wading. A large
two-story building was built
near the pool and it included
dressing rooms and a pavilion.
The upstairs was a dance hall
which was sometimes also used
asaMasonicHall.Thepopularity
of the spring continued to grow
and Worthington Springs got
its first hotel, largely due to
people traveling in for the
spring, about 1895. Called the
Scarborough Hotel, it was a
two-story structure which was
torn down in 1905.
The Dubose Hotel was also
built around this same time and
it burned down in 1906. Also in


the 1890s, the Wells Hotel was
built about 100 feet from the
spring with a footpath leading to
the water. Hotel patrons would
go to the spring and relax in or
near the cool waters.
The post office was located
in the Wells Hotel during that
time. The family who owned
the hotel included Capt. Wells,
Bud, Jerry and Pet. Bud drove
an old mule named Santa Claus
and provided transportation to
and from the train station. The


Wells Hotel was also called the
Rough Dried Hotel because it
was built of undressed lumber,
and the boards were very rough.
This hotel also burned in 1906.
The last hotel built in
Worthington Springs was
built by Lamb and called the
Worthington Hotel. It was a
very nice brick building which
served as a social mecca for
the entire area. This hotel
was leased to a Bennett from
Gainesville who had extensive
plans for improvements, but it
burned down.on April 14, 1937,
before work could begin.
Throughout this history of
hotels being built and then
burning down, the spring
continued to draw people from
near and far. Whenever the
community had a big outdoor
celebration, like on the Fourth
of July, it was to the spring
they went. At times, horses

were hitched to every tree
while picnickers enjoyed the
countryside and bathed in or
drank the health-giving waters.
Trucks carried the water to
cities throughout the southeast.
In the 1900s the railroad was
built through town and brought
changes, including an iron
bridge across the Santa Fe
River near the spring in 1908.
Holiday trains would be so
crowded with people traveling
to the spring that they would


literally hang out the windows
and ride hanging onto the steps
and onto the outside of the
train.
There are times when 2,000-
3,000 people would amass to
spend the day at the spring.
A special train ran from
Jacksonville to Worthington
Springs on the Fourth of
July just to accommodate the
holiday-goers. The spring also
hosted political rallies and
people made a whole day of it,
enjoying the water, listening to
speeches and picnicking.
In 1937-1939 a concrete

excess water and about
two acres of land was
added to Union County,
since the river was the
legal boundary. The
May 26, 1939, edition
of the Union County
Times reported that the
spring was under new
management.
The pool had been
overhauled, cleaned
out and repaired and an
open-air pavilion was
available for dancing.
In that article it was
reported that the springs
poured pure mineral
water into the pool at
a rate high enough to
completely change the
water every two and C
one-half hours. The
flow rate was figured
at 74,000 gallons per
hour.
A report in the Union County
Times on March 23, 1956,
said the spring had stopped
bubbling. For the first time as
far back as people of the day
could remember, the spring had
no flowing water.. The sulfur
spring used to keep water levels
in the Santa Fe at a good level
in all but the dry season, when
the river goes-underground for
a time at two stretches near
Worthington Springs.
. Why the water stopped
flowing has never been
adequately explained. Drought,
a drop in the level of the water
table in this area of Florida,
debris clogging the spring-
all these and more have been
advanced as theories.
Rumors that Samuel
Worthington put a curse on
the spring also abound and
some say This explains why so
many people have owned the
spring, but none have run it as
a successful business for long.
But Samuel's curse is usually
only trotted out by old timers
sitting fishing on river banks or
telling tales to grandchildren by
firelight.
The great-great grandson
of Samuel Worthington, John
Yearly of Gulf Hammock,
told one Worthington Springs
resident that the curse story was
pure bunk. Dorothy Seay wrote
a history of the spring, from
which much of this information
was originally taken, and

whenever the son paid
a visit to Worthington
Springs. Yearly told .
Seay Samuel would

Fundraiser for
Reddish
scholarship to
be held in
October
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Becky Reddish is
remembered fondly for her
work in the Bradford County
school system, so it should
come as no surprise that a
scholarship in her honor is
being established at Santa Fe
College.
Funds must be raised for that
fund, though, and the
community has a chance to
both give and remember
Reddish at an event at
Madison Street Baptist Church
in Starke on Friday, Oct. 17.
"A Tribute to Becky" is
scheduled for 7-8:30 a.m.
(doors will open at 6:30 a.m.)
at the church's family life
center. Tickets to the event;
which includes breakfast, are
$25.
"We hope to sell 300
tickets," said Cheryl Canova,
the director of the Santa Fe
College Andrews Center.
"That's our goal."
Six people who knew
Reddish, who was killed in a
March 18 vehicle accident, are
scheduled to speak, while two
special videos will also be
shown.
A goal of raising $50,000 for
the scholarship fund has been
set. The current total stands at
approximately $16,500.
"We hope the community
will come out and support us,"
Canova said.
Tickets can be obtained at
the Andrews Center or by
calling Dana Blankenship at
(904) 964-6229.-
Donations may also be made
at the Andrews Center or
mailed to: Santa Fe College

Bradford County Education Foundation members (I-r) Cheryl Canova, Paula
Register and Sylvia Tatum serve breakfast during a welcome-back reception for
teachers.


Bradford groups strives to


make impact on schools


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Text books are important
learning tools in school
classrooms, but students would
much more enjoy having the
opportunity to use a telescope
when learning about
astronomy, for example, than
simply being confined to
reading about the subject.
Thanks to the efforts of
concerned citizens in Bradford
County, teachers in Bradford
County schools have such
resources at their disposal to
enhance students' learning
experiences.
The Bradford County
Education Foundation Inc. is a
not-for-profit organization that
was established in 1990. It
raises money through
fundraising efforts to assist
teachers at the county's eight
schools (including the
Bradford-Union Career
Technical Career Center).
Last year, the foundation
raised approximately $67,000.
That money goes directly to
students-the foundation
awards scholarships every
year-and teachers.
"I love the foundation,"
Bradford High School history
teacher Cindy Combs said.
"It's just enabled me to get so
many resources for m
classroom that I wouldn't be-,
able to get otherwise."
Money can be used to buy
* such items as pens or reams of
paper for teachers, or
something as simple as a box
of tissues. Longtime
Foundation member Paula:
Register, who-used to be a
teacher herself, said people
may not realize that for a
teacher to keep tissues on hand
in her classroom for student
use, he or she must use her
own money to purchase them.
The foundation's help,
though, goes way beyond
buying pens, paper, tissues,

etc. Money is set aside each
year to fund what members
call "mini-grants." Mini-grants
fund classroom projects
devised by teachers to
supplement what they are
teaching in the classroom.
Teachers apply for the mini-
grants by submitting proposals
that outline the amount of
money they are seeking (a
maximum of $1200) and how
they will use that money.
Applicants' names and the
schools they teach at are not
revealed to the foundation
members who review the
applications before making
their selection.
Last year, mini-grants
totaling $20,148.08 were
awarded to 22 teachers. Combs
was one of those recipients.
She was awarded $885.73,
some of which, for example,
was used to purchase DVDs to
correspond with her lesson on
the Revolutionary War.
"That's much better than just
trying to read the words in
black and white," Combs said.
Combs said student
textbooks are a resource, but
they can't coinprise the whole
educational package. Bradford
Middle School Principal Jeff
Cable agreed.
"I think the days of just
"tecfTifig ff6rn thfe"texbbobk'
.haye, been gone for a long
time," Cable said.
Register has had the
opportunity to walk through
classrooms and observe how
teachers are putting their mini-
grants to use, whether it's
students keeping caterpillars so
they can watch them transform
into butterflies or students
using cameras to take pictures
to complement essay
assignments.
"I think it's something
exciting for the kids," Register
said.

For Sept. 25-28, both still
hunt areas 1 and 2 will be
open, but there will be some
parts of still hunt area 2
closed. There were 350
permits issued for the first
archery hunt on Camp
Blanding, and the FWC is
making every effort to alert the
hunters to the change.
"We are sending a letter to
all permit holders explaining
the date change," Garrison
said. "We are putting
information about the change
on our Web site as well and
sending information to the
local media. We're also asking

that hunters talk to one another

informed."
Hunters with questions can
call the FWC regional office in
Lake City at (386) 758-0525.
"The second archery hunt,
scheduled for Sept. 30-Oct. 2,
has not changed," Garrison
said. "The muzzleloading gun
hunts, scheduled for Oct. 7-9
and Oct. 14-16, have not
changed either."
The supervised youth hunts
scheduled for Oct. 11-12 and
See HUNTS, p. 6B


This fall's first archery hunt
on Camp Blanding has been
rescheduled, and the general
gun still and the archery-only
area hunts have been reduced
in length.
Military training in the
hunting area prompted moving
the first archery hunt to Sept.
25-28. The original dates were
Sept. 23-25.
"We apologize for any
inconvenience this may cause
hunters," said Jim Garrison,
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) biologist at Camp
Blanding. However, the
military needed Sept. 23 and
24 for training."
The personnel at Camp
Blanding worked with the
commission to come up with a
solution and have offered to
extend the hunt from a three-
day hunt to a four-day hunt,
Garrison said.

Editorial/Opinion


Thursday, September 25, 2008 Page 5B


Insurance
agents and
more
Dear Editor:
Have you ever noticed how in
some cases that one business will
benefit from the other's business?
For instance, take the debt
insurance agents. They go around
selling policies to help cover
medical bills and funerals. This
also helps the doctor on his
services. When they approach the
client, they're telling him in a
sense that he won't get sick or die.
On the other hand, the client feels
different about his chances, so he
buys the policy. If there's a chance
that they, will get sick and die,
they wouldn't sell you the policy
anyway.
This is where the doctor comes
in. He hopes to keep you healthy
and living by giving you regular
check-ups, pills, shots, all kind of
medicine, x-rays, etc. He wants
you to stay healthy and living. By
keeping you as his patient, this
will help keep his business
thriving. He's happy and so is the
insurance agents, the agents can
keep collecting your premium.
Now, here comes the
undertaker. He is sitting back
waiting on a sure thing because he
knows that sooner or later he will
get your business. This is one
business that does not have to
solicit business because just as
you came here; you're going to
leave here. He's ready to take care
of the last step in your life. You
don't even have to order a casket.
Mine and yours are already in his
establishment. Now your family
selects your casket for you and he
arranges everything for your last
exit. He makes everything handy
for your loved ones. You know
this sounds like a sure-fire


business to be in, because none of
us are going to stay here forever.
All the above are things to be
taken care of. But, the most
important thing to take care of.is
your soul. Be ready to meet the
Savior. Pray for our leaders, and
God bless America.

Mayor Jim Mitzel has created a

the fund. The issue that I would

council of Hampton does not
know enough to understand that
they should honor their veterans. I
have to say I take offense at this
statement. I served my country in
Vietnam along with four of my
cousins. I served with good men
and good friends who did not
make it home. I had five uncles
who stormed the beach at
Normandy during World War II,
only four came home. In fact,
there are veterans in my family
dating all the way back to the
American Revolution. I believe I
can understand better than anyone
who hasn't served in the military,
the sacrifice made by American'
veterans. I am now disabled and
some of my disability is due to my
service. However, I would not
hesitate to take up arms in the
defense of my country today if I
were asked.
I have friends here in Hampton
and other places who paid an even
higher price than I for their service
and I believe they all feel the same
way. I know that my years in the
Army is where I learned some of
the most valuable lessons of my
life. The Army made me the man I
am today. I know that
Councilwoman Stone has a son
who has served in Iraq and is
planning a second our. Her father
and stepfather are both veterans.
Councilman Green also had an
uncle who died at Normandy. I
know from a discussion at council
meetings that all five of the city
council members of the city feel
strongly about veterans rights.
From what I have read about
Major Rogers, I think he does


deserve our honor for his service
and sacrifice. I have to wonder,
though, if he would have approved
of the fundraising efforts in his
name. He was an ordained
minister and a man of faith. I did
not know Major Rogers personally
but I don't believe a beer drinking
contest is the right method to
honor his memory. I believed he
tried to live his life with dignity.
Also, I have given a lot of thought
to what might be the best method
to honor him and all of our area
veterans.
I have been a patient at the VA
hospital on several occasions;
there were no books provided
unless they are donated. The same
goes for playing cards, magazines,
puzzles and other items like these.
I propose the mayor contact the
VA for items that are most needed
by the veterans there and use the
money to purchase them in the
name of all fallen Hampton
veterans. Also, I urge anyone who
would like to honor a loved one
who is a veteran to do the same.
It is important that we
remember the sacrifice of the good
men like Major Rogers who die
for our freedom. It is also
important to remember the
sacrifice of the good men and
women who live on with lifetime
disabilities from their service.

HUNTS
Continued from page 3B

Oct. 25-26 remain the same, as
do the general gun dog hunts,
scheduled Nov. 22-30 and
Dec. 20-28.
"Two other hunts on the area
have been reduced in length,"
Garrison said.- "The general
gun still hunt season will now
be from Nov. 22 to Nov. 30
and from Dec. 20 to Jan. I on
both still hunt areas 1 and 2."
The area will be closed Dec.


1-19and Jan. 2-18.
The archery-only area hunts
have also changed to Nov. 22-
30 and Dec. 20-Jan. 1 on
archery zones A, B, C, D, E
and F. The area will be closed
Dec. 1-19 and Jan. 2-18.
"Again, the reason for the
change to these two hunts was
scheduled military training,"
Garrison said. "All the dates
are subject to change, so we
suggest hunters call the Camp
Blanding hunter hotline for up-
to-the-minute information."
The hotline number is (904)

for example, through a

about the planet in a book.
"It's benefited them because
I'm able to give them a real-
world example," Tinsler said.
That is why during a
meeting with teachers earlier
this year, Cable asked for
another show of hands when
he wasn't satisfied with the
numberA raised when he
originally asked how many
teachers would be applying for
mini-grants. Cable said
teachers should apply for as
many grants as they can in


order to best serve their
students, especially today in
light of budget cuts.
Those budget cuts are on the
minds of education foundation
members. In fact, the
organization will implement a
new fundraiser on March 7-
an adult spelling bee.
Cheryl Canova, the
foundation president, said she
hopes 10-12 teams will
compete at the event, which
will be held at the Charley E.
Johns Conference Center..
"I think it will be something,
fun and different that we
haven't had in the past,"
Canova said.
The foundation is also
considering a poinsettia sale,
which, if approved, would take


Scott Roberts.

place later this year;
"This year we're just trying
to do more to help the schools
because of the cut in their
budget," Canova said.
The foundation will continue
to receive funds through the
sale of "Support Education"
vehicle tags and its annual
silent and live auctions, which
are held in conjunction with
the North Florida Chamber of
Commerce banquet. This past
year's auctions raised $13,357.
That amount, besides
helping to fund last school
year's 22 mini-grants, helped
fund two scholarships, which
were presented to Coretha
Beard and Cortnee Patterson,
the county's teacher of the
year/school-related employee
of. the year luncheon and a
back-to-school breakfast for
teachers and school staff.
Tinsler, who was the
Bradford Middle School
teacher of the year last year,
said the luncheon gave him the
chance to brag to teachers in
other counties about the
recognition and support he and
other teachers receive in
Bradford, County.
"It is always good to have
that extra thank-you for what
you do," Tinsler said.
. Foundation members
couldn't agree more. That's
why the foundation will hand
out goodie bags to teachers at
various times throughout the
year as ,, way of boosting
morale.
Such recognition and
support is "tremendous" for
teachers, which, in turn,
impacts students, Register
said. That, she said, is what the
Bradford County Education
Foundation is all about: doing
whatever it can to help
students learn and have fun
doing so.
"These kids are our future,"
Register said.

Hampton, or 'Crossroads,' had roller-coaster history


(A major portion of this
history was first written by
Brenda Bawek Thornton in the
110th anniversary edition of
the Telegraph.)
Hampton, located about six
miles south of Starke, was
incorporated in 1893 and has
gone through phases of boom
and bust throughout its history.
Hampton was known as
Crossroads primarily because
the-A-tlantic-to-Gulf Railroad
was built through the area in
1859 and the settlement grew
up around it. Good farmland
prompted further settlement
and several small stores were
established. A second railroad,
the Georgia Southern and
Florida Rail Line, passed
through town a little later and
prompted a boom.
Crossroads was renamed
Hampton when the first post
office was established there in
1882. The town was named
after a 10-year-old boy,
Hampton Terry, whose father
owned a farm near the railroad
tracks.
The town grew up around
this farm and when Blanton
and Cameron, town merchants,
opened a post office in their
business, the name of
Hampton was officially given
to the town in honor of the
family whose farm had
provided the nucleus of the
settlement.
Today Hampton boasts a
post office, a convenience
store, a city hall, an elementary
school and a volunteer fire
department. Those are the only
commercial or government
buildings in town, today, but
the 1880s railroad boom gave
the town an entirely different
face.
Hampton had a bank, a
hotel, a drug store, a lumber
mill, several large merchandise
stores, a shingle mill, a cotton
gin, a turpentine still and the


Now a sleepy, little community with less than a handful lines crossed in town, the Hampton train depot was

served as a major travel hub for the area. Since two rail 1899.


railroad depot. Simon Temple
established the lumber mill in
an area referred to as Thurston '
in those days. Once located
just north of town on the road
to Starke, Thurston no longer
exists today.
Temple was,,a pioneer
lumberman who had such a
thriving operation that it was
given its own fourth-class post
office to serve the needs of the
mill workers. As the railroad
expanded, so did Hampton and
several churches were
established. The first was the
Methodist church which was
located across from the
Hampton Cemetery. It also no
longer exists today.


In the late 1800s, two
brothers who were also
ministers moved into the
Starke and Hampton area. The
Rev. G.P. Young and the Rev.
William B. Young were
religious leaders and
educators.
W.B. Young opened the
Hampton school in 1883 and
in 1886 he had established the
Lake Navarre Academy.
Hampton's main street, then as
now, was called Navarre
Avenue and the academy took
its name from there. Hampton
Lake was once referred to as
Lake Navarie. W.B. Young
also established the First
Christian Church in 1884.


Two other brothers, Jack R.
and Tom Williams of Alachua,
felt Hampton would be a good
base 'of operations for their
traveling sales business since
access could be had to both rail
lines and they established a
headquarters in town in 1889.
The Williams brothers were
also credited with establishing
the Hampton Baptist Church in
1891. The Hampton Hotel was
established in 1891 by another
Williams brother, R.M. It was
a two-story,16-room hotel with
accommodations for 25, a
large kitchen, dining room and
lobby.
The hotel attracted salesmen
to the area who would arrive


Son the afternoon train, stay
overnight in the hotel and then
travel out into the countryside
to sell their wares by buggy.
Many other travelers also


chose to eat and rest at
Hampton.
The town was incorporated
in 1893, but it also allowed its
charter to lapse and had to be
reincorporated in 1911 and
1925. The Big Freeze
adversely affected Hampton's
economy-as it did any town
which relied on oranges and
other agricultural crops-and
caused an end to the boom.
Rapid use of timber in the
area led to an exhaustion of the
crop and a decline of the
timber industry around
Hampton.
With timber and oranges
declining, farmers turned to
cotton and strawberries. The
town once had two cotton gins
in operation. Hampton
struggled to survive, but as
cars replaced trains as the main
mode of travel, Hampton
declined. Road 13 (now U.S.
301) was re-routed and
bypassed Hampton. The road
had a curve, called the
Hampton Curve, which was
considered dangerous and the
state road department re-routed
Road 13 in the 1930s to
straighten out this curve.
With rail travel on the
decline and a booming road
travel passing the town by,
Hampton became a ghost
town. Businesses closed,

Pearl Horne and Ruth Matchett were at work at the Horne grocery in Hampton in
the late '40s or early '50s. The Home family owned the store for years.


HAM PTON
Continued from page 1C

property values hit rock
bottom and a series of fires
destroyed many of the
commercial buildings and
residences. In 1934 one of
those fires destroyed the
Hampton Hotel. Late in the
1930s another of these fires


destroyed one whole side of.a
street, including the post'office
and telephone exchange.
Hampton appeared to be
dying, but when Camp
Blanding's boom hit the area,
the small town near Starke also
benefited. Troops were carried
to the camp on the train and
their families rented rooms and
homes in town. When
Blanding's boom ended;
however, Hampton subsided


back into the sleepy little
hamlet it is today.
A privately-owned Water
system had served the town in
the 1970s, but the system
couldn't satisfy state
environmental standards and
the town took it over, and
constructed a new system in
1978. Hampton remains the
sleepy little town it became
after Blanding stopped training
troops for World War II.

Tigers withstand late rally, defeat Warriors by 10


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It had been a struggle to run
the ball all night long, but head
coach Andrew Zow was
hoping his Union County
Tigers could just gain enough
yards to pick up a first down or
two, allowing quarterback
Chris Alexander to take a knee
and run the clock out on a
hard-fought victory.
Zow got more than he
bargained for-though he
wasn't complaining-when
Deven Perry broke free for a
58-yard touchdown run to give
the Tigers a cushion and a 34-
24 win over West Nassau on
Sept. 19 in Callahan.
The Tigers (2-1),.who had
rushed for just 51 yards up to
that point, were able to build a
big first-half lead, taking
advantage of turnovers. West
Nassau, however, closed the
gap to four with 8:15 left to
play and threatened to take the
lead in the game's last two
minutes.
It was up to Union's defense
to make another big play. The
unit responded with not just


one, but two big plays. An
interception initially put an end
to a Warriors drive that had
reached the Union 23-yard
line, but a fumble on the return
gave the ball back to West
Nassau at the 35. Two plays
later, though, Nevin Johns
recovered his second fumble of
the game for the Tigers.
"Our defense stepped up a
few times tonight and really
bailed us out when we didn't
move the ball or made a silly
mistake (on offense)," Zow
said.
The defense forced five
turnovers on the night, three of
which occurred in the first
half. A fumble recovery by
Aaron McRae in the first
quarter gave the offense the
ball at the West Nassau 11,
while an interception by SJ.
Simmons gave the Tigers the
ball at the West Nassau 5 in
the second quarter. Union took
advantage of those
opportunities to build a 22-6
lead.
Zow was hard pressed to
name just a few standouts on
the defensive side of the ball.


Bryan Holmes (left) makes a reception along the
sideline in the Tigers' win over West Nassau.


"I think everybody stepped
up," he said.
The game got off to a bad
start for the Tigers and their
defensive unit as the Warriors
(0-3) took the opening kickoff
and marched 67 yards for a
touchdown. The 12-play drive
featured nine carries by Horace
Wilson, who .scored from a
yard out approximately five


minutes into the game.
It appeared as if Union was
not going to be able to answer
the score. Perry and Najeeb
Smith were each dropped for
losses on the Tigers' first two
plays from scrimmage.
Quarterback Chris Alexander
hooked up with Ruben
Williams for a 17-yard gain to
the West Nassau 44 to pick up


the first down and keep the
drive alive.
An 18-yard reception by
Bryan Holmes later put the
Tigers at the 8-yard line.
.Alexander, who completed all
three of his pass attempts on
the drive, used his feet to put
Union on the board, scoring on
a I-yard sneak up the middle
with 2:01 left in the first
quarter. The two-point
conversion-a run by Smith-
was no good, but the Tigers
had tied the game at 6-all.
The score did not remain
that way for long. West
Nassau's center, following the
ensuing kickoff, appeared to
have snapped the ball before
quarterback Robbie Hern
expected it. The ball lay on the
field while players stood
around, apparently waiting for
the officials to throw .a flag.
McRae finally scooped up the
ball and took off toward the
end zone before being dragged
down at the 11.
A 10-yard reception by
Jordan Williams set up first-
and-goal from the 1. Ruben
Williams carried the ball in
from there with 32 seconds
remaining in the opening
quarter. On the two-point
conversion, Alexander
dropped back to pass before
scrambling away from
pressure and carrying the ball
over the goal line himself.for a
14-6 lead.
The Tigers took advantage
of a short field again when


Simmons came up with an
interception on the Warriors'
next possession. His 17-yard
reception set the offense up at
the 5-yard line. Smith scored
on a run from there on first
down, which, with Williams'
reception on the two-point

District 4-2B opener for both
teams. The Tigers will attempt
to win just their second district
game since a 29-28 win over
Trinity Catholic last year.
Newberry (2-1) is the
reigning district champion,
having gone 13-1 last season
before losing 53-14 to Pahokee
in the state championship
game.
The Panthers lost 15 starters
from that team to graduation,
but returning senior running
back Ryan Brown helped them
get off to a fast start this
season with 47-18 and 48-14
victories over Santa Fe and
'Dixie Co6iinty.:"Bfdvn rushed

return. He finished the game
with 265 all-purpose yards.


Newberry, though, which

ground in those first two
games, was held to 171 last
week in a 15-9 loss to Fort
White. That snapped a 12-
game regular-season winning
streak.
For the season, the Panthers
are 'averaging 323 yards of
offense per game. Junior
quarterback Yance Enoch has
attempted just two passes.

yielding 127 years per game
rushing and 90 yards per game
passing. That unit returns
Brown at strong safety, Ross at
free safety and Hadley at nose

games in 2005, but have gone
21-7 since then. They put
together a perfect regular
season last year, which

Bradford, Keystone teams return to action Friday


Tornadoes travel to
take on 2-1
Fernandina Beach

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford's offense has
struggled to find the end zone,
but the Tornadoes' opponent
this week has surpassed 30
points twice, including a 61-0
win to open the season.
The Tornadoes open their
District 3-2A schedule when
they travel to take on the
Fernandina Beach Pirates
Friday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m.
The Pirates (2-1) rebounded
from a 35-14 loss to Bishop
Kenny by defeating Baldwin
35-2 last week.
Junior- running back Tahj
Kimble scored four
touchdowns in that win. He
rushed for 219 yards and
touchdowns of 3, 25 and 46


yards on 17 carries.
Kimble also caught three
passes for 20 yards, including
a 34-yard touchdown
reception.
That pass was thrown by
senior quarterback Emory
Wingard, who returns from
last year's 8-3 team that
finished as district runner-up.
Wingard was 1 l-of-16 for 120
yards with no interceptions
against Baldwin.
Wingard had two touchdown
passes in the loss to Bishop
Kenny, but threw two
interceptions, completing 15 of
30 passes for 175 yards.
The Pirates have given up an
average of 271 yards in their
past two games. The defense
gave up four touchdowns to
Bishop Kenny (the Crusaders'
other touchdown came on an
interception return), but gave
up no points against Baldwin,
forcing seven turnovers.
Senior linebackers Sean
McNamee and Michael Yonn


are key returners from -last
year's team, which held seven
opponents to under 20 points.
Fernandina won its first
three district games last year
and finished with a 5-2 record
against district opponents. The
Pirates, though, came very
close to dropping their first
district game, a slim 13-12 win
over Bradford.
Bradford outgained the
Pirates 192-105 (Fernandina
was held to 88 yards rushing
on 23 carries), but one of
Fernandina's scores came on
an interception return by
Kimble.
The Pirates had two
turnovers in the game, one of
which was an interception by
current Bradford sophomore
Tramaine Harris that prevented
a Fernandina score late in the
first half.
Bradford's two scores were
on runs of 15 and 55 yards by
Chuckie Covington and Rob
Harris, respectively.


Indians travel to play
winless Interlachen
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Keystone Heights' next
opponent is winless so far this
season as well, but the
Interlachen Rams' struggles
have been ongoing for quite a
while.
The Indians open District 3-
2A play when they travel to
Interlachen Friday, Sept. 26, to
take on the Rams at 7:30 p.m.
Interlachen has had a knack of
playing Keystone tough, with
28-21 and 6-0 losses in the
2003 and 2005 seasons.
However, the Rams have lost
the last two meetings by an
average margin of 36 points.
Interlachen enters the game
on a 12-game losing streak,


having endured a winless
season in 2007. The Rams
have had three winless seasons
in the last six years and have
lost 51 of their last 61 games.
Most teams Interlachen
faced last year had an easy
time of it, defeating the Rams
by an average margin of 38
points. The Rams' closest
game was a 20-13 loss to
Yulee.
Interlachen opened the
season with a 34-7 loss to
Crescent City. Special teams
hurt the Rams in that game as
a botched punt attempt and an
81-yard punt return set the
Raiders up for two scores. A
43-yard interception return
resulted in another score.
It was a closer contest for
the Rams last week, but it was
still a loss-23-12 at the hands
of Providence. Special teams


were a problem again as
Providence had a 20-yard punt
return to set up a score and

conversion, put the Tigers up
22-6 early in the second
'quarter.
West Nassau turned the ball
over again when McRae
sacked Hern, forcing the ball
loose, which was recovered by
Johns. A holding penalty and
two straight sacks of
Alexander forced the Tigers to
go three-and-out.
The Warriors held onto the
ball after receiving the punt,
marching 85 yards for their
second score. Hern had a big
play on second-and-15 when
he scampered 58 yards to the
Union' 32. A 17-yard run by
Wilson later in the drive set up
his own 5-yard touchdown run
with 3:20 remaining in the first
half.
Union, however, increased
its lead before going into the
locker room. A 10-yard
reception by Holmes converted
a fourth-down play, while a 3-
yard run by Perry on fourth-
and-I gave the Tigers a first
down at the West Nassau 13.
With 29 seconds left on the
clock, Alexander found Adam
Cason in the end zone for a 9-
yard touchdown and a 28-12
lead.
The Tigers had a promising
drive to open the second half,
but an unsportsmanlike
conduct penalty, after gaining
a first down at the West
Nassau 21, forced them to
eventually punt.
West Nassau, meanwhile,
sandwiched two scoring drives
around a three-and-out
possession by Union. The first
drive totaled 95 yards and
included two offsides calls on
the Tigers on short third- and
fourth-down plays. Garrett
Hammett capped the drive
with an 11-yard touchdown
reception with approximately a
minute left in the third quarter.


Jordan
Williams makes
a catch in the
end zone for a
successful two-
point
conversion.
The score put
Union up 22-6
in the second
quarter.






Wilson, after being hit by
Mason Dukes in the backfield,
came up short on the two-point
conversion, leaving the
Warriors trailing 28-18.
The next scoring drive
consisted of nine plays
covering 71 yards. A 5-yard
touchdown run made it a four-
point game.
A botched punt.attempt in
the fourth quarter gave the
Warriors, who now had some
momentum, a first down at the
.Union 40 with 3:06 to play.
They were able to gain a first
down at the 23, but McRae and
Kendall Wright dumped Hern
for a 3-yard loss before the
quarterback tossed his second
interception of the game.
It was another sack that
preceded the Warriors' final
turnover. Dukes dropped Hern
a yard behind the line of
scrimmage before Johns
recovered a fumble, which set
up Perry's long touchdown
run.
Zow said the win was big for
the Tigers' psyche. He hopes
being able to withstand some
adversity will convince his

Union County records sweep in Sept. 22 home match


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Newberry put together late
rallies in the second and third
games of the match, but the
host Union County Tigers
were able to hang on and
record a 3-0 (25-15, 25-20, 25-
17) sweep on Sept. 22.
The Tigers (3-4 prior to
Sept. 23) turned a close first
game into an easy win, thanks,
in part, to the serving of
Markie Emery. Emery
recorded a couple of aces
during a span in which Union
turned a 6-5 lead into one of
10-5. Later in the game, the
Tigers scored four points with
Emery serving to go up 23-12.
Jordan Wyndham notched a
kill to put an end to that game.


Union held a slim 13-12 lead
in the second game before
scoring eight points with
Wyndham serving. Wyndham
had three aces, while Linsey
Clark had a kill.
Newberry, though, would
later pull to within 24-20 after
recording two straight kills
after a sideout. Union was able
to close the match out, though,
when a back row pass went
over the net and fell for the
winning point.
Wyndham got the Tigers,off
to a good start in the third
game when she recorded the
game's first point on an ace.
The Panthers, though, scored
the next five points.
Union was down 6-4 when
Clark held serve. Four straight
Newberry errors allowed the


Jordan Wyndham holds serve in the match's second
game.


Tigers to go up 8-6.
Brianne Clyatt recorded a
couple of service aces to help


Union go up 18-8. A couple of
aces later by Wyndham had
the Tigers up 22-13.


Newberry would make the
score 22-17, but the Tigers
were able to close out the
match with two straight points
earned on Newberry errors.
The Tigers attempted to pick
up their first win in District 6-
3A this past Tuesday against
Interlachen. Union dropped
matches to district opponents
Pierson Taylor and Crescent
City last week.
Union hosts Hamilton
County tonight, Sept. 25, then
travels to Live Oak to play
Suwannee on Monday, Sept.
29. The Tigers return home
Tuesday, Sept. 30, to play
district opponent Keystone
Heights.
All matches are scheduled
for approximately 6:30 p.m.
following junior varsity
matches at 5 p.m.

INDIANS
Continued from page 4C

blocked punt, which resulted
in a safety.
A bright spot was Quell
Brown, who rushed for 153
yards and touchdowns of 10
and 43 yards.
Brown, a senior, is one of
six returning starters on
offense along with senior,
fullback Jamel Leonard, senior
wide receiver Martez Harris
and senior linemen Jake
Palmer, Brandt Scharwz and
Austin Symonette.-
Brown and Leonard are also
starters on defense at defensive
back and linebacker,
respectively. Other returners
include junior linebackers.
Chase Bishop and Dustin
Douglas.
DJ. Lawerence, a
linebacker, had an interception
in the loss to Providence.
Interceptions were plentiful
in the game between the Rams
and the Indians last .year.
Keystone came up with. three
on the Rams' first four
Offensive possessions en route
to a 49-6 win.
In all, the Indians had four
picks, with current senior
linebacker Dillon Van Wagner,
who played in the secondary
last year, coming up with two.
Current senior defensive backs
Lee Lambert and Jacob Van
Wagner each had one.


It was a stout defensive
effort overall as Keystone held
the Rams to minus-4 yards
rushing and 53 yards overall.
Keystone's offense relied on
its ground game, rushing for
424 yards on 51 carries.
Running backs Matt Story and
Greg Taylor combined for five
touchdown runs, with Taylor
also scoring on a pass
reception. (The Indians
attempted just three passes.)
Current senior running back
