Man sought in Union County now behind bars in Jacksonville


'96th Year 35th Issue 50 CENTS


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
.Times Staff Writer
A man being sought in Union
County is now behind bars in
Duval County following a
police chase that led to the death


of a 16-year-old Jacksonville
resident.
According to reports released
by the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office, just after 9:30 p.m.
on Sunday evening, Eugene


Brown III was driving a Buick
LeSabre with its lights off on
Jacksonville's north side. When
officers tried to stop the car, he
sped away.
It was reported that officers


saw two passengers with
Brown in the vehicle as it
continued through several stops
signs, driving erratically into
oncoming traffic and striking
several patrol cars. It is alleged


that at one point, the car slowed
down and an unidentified front
seat passenger fled on foot.
Police were able to run the
car off the road, but Brown lost
control and struck a utility pole.


As police approached the car,
they found Brown was dead
from a gunshot wound to the
back of the head.

S0
City audit


brings glad


tidings


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer

A city of Lake Butler audit
performed by Powell &Jones,
Certified Public Accountants
revealed that as of the end of
fiscal year. Sept. 30, 2008,
the city had $4.83 million
invested in capital assets to
include fire equipment, park
and recreation facilities,
buildings, road, bridges and
water and sewer facilities.
The amount reflects a
decrease in capital assets of
$134,696, or 3 percent, from
last year, due primarily to
the sale of a building to
Little Rainbows Learning
Center. The city uses its
capital assets to provide
services to citizens, and they
are, therefore, not available
for future spending.
"One way to judge the
health of a city," said City
Manager John Berchtold, "is
to look at the general fund
balance at the end of tlhe
year."
For Lake Butler, that
balance is $475,439 in
unreserved funds, an amount
that Berchtold is quite
pleased with.
"With an unstable
economy, our reserves are
built-up enough that if
something happens to our
state funding, or in the event
of an emergency, we can still
operate for 4- 5 months and


still be OK,' he said.
Lake Butler's outstanding
long-term liabilities was
drastically decreased from
a balance of $241,649 at
the end 2007 to $17,685 at
the end of 2008, thanks to
the city paying off its 2003
loan for its new city hall
building.
Powell & Jones found no
instance of noncompliance
to report under Government
Auditing Standards.
However, they did note
two items they reported
to the members of the city
commission.
In reviewing credit card
transactions for the fiscal
year, Powell & Jones found
several instances of charges
made on the city's credit
card where the original
receipts were not found
with the monthly credit card
statements.
The auditor also found
three instances where part-
time employees did not have
established payroll files.
To increase internal control
over credit card activities,
it was recommended tat
original sales receipts for
credit card purchases be
filed with the statements and
that records be maintained
for all part-time employees
in the same manner as
records are kept for full-time
employees.

Ie mom struggles to

Christmas to her kids


Single mom Judy Stegall (second from right) Is struggling this season to bring
Christmas to her children, Chad Stegall (back left), Brandon McCoy and Brandy
McCoy.


In conjunction with the
Big Red Christmas Drive,
the Times is featuring a
local family.that needs
a little helpi his holiday
season.

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Judy Stegall has lived in
Union County for most of her
life. The 39-year-old single
mom is a graduate of Union
County High School and may
look familiar to many as one
of the friendly cashiers at


Spires IGA. She and herthree
children are also members of
First Baptist Church in Lake
Butler, where Stegall proudly
says she was baptized earlier
this week.
Unfortunately, Stegall's full
time job won't be enough to
provide Christmas for her three
children this season. She said
things really began getting
difficult during Pop Warner
season when she signed up
Brandon, age 11, for football
and Brandy, 10,forcheerleading
so the kids could continue with
an activity they love.
"The gas prices got so high,
it made it hard to get back and


forth to their games," Stegall
said.
To make matters worse, child
support checks stopped coming
in; an income she depended
upon to make ends meet. Then
came the rise in the cost of
utilities, her needed dental
work and constant repairs
needed for her three-bedroom
trailer home.
"My brothers help with
the repairs when they can,"
Stegall said, "but the trailer's
getting old." I've signed up.

FHP launches

DUI campaign
The holiday season between
Thanksgiving and New Year's
is one of the deadliest and most
dangerous times on America's
roadways due to an increase in
drunk driving.
Since 1981, every President
of the United States has
proclaimed December as
National Drunk and Drugged
Driving (3D) Prevention
Month.
In an effort to get impaired
drivers off of the roads, the
Florida Highway Patrol is
joining with hundreds of other
state and local law enforcement
and highway safety officials
across the nation from Dec.
13-31, to launch an aggressive
national campaign Drunk
Driving. Over the Limit. Under
Arrest.
According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, in December
2007, 992 people were killed
in crashes nationwide that
involved a drunk driver with a
blood alcohol concentration of
.08 or higher, which is above
the legal limit in every state.
The FHP recommends
designating a sober driver and
not letting friends drive drunk
as just two simple steps to
avoid a tragic crash or an arrest
for impaired driving. Other
important tips include:

Plan ahead: Whenever
you plan to consume alcohol,


designate your sober driver
before going out and give that
person your car keys.
If you are impaired, call a
taxi, use mass transit or call a
friend or family member to get
you home safely.
Promptly report drunk
drivers you see on the roadways
to law enforcement. Dial *FHP
( *347) from your cell phone
to contact the Florida Highway
Patrol.

As the holidays approach,
Social Security has good tidings
to share with Social Security
and Supplemental Security
Income (SSI) beneficiaries:
All Social Security and SSI
beneficiaries will receive a
5.8 percent increase in benefit
payments beginning with the
January payments.
The 5.8 percent Cost-of-
Living Adjustment will begin
with benefits that more than
50 million Social Security
beneficiaries receive in January
2009. Increased payments
to more than 7 million SSI
beneficiaries will begin on Dec.
31.
Social Security and
Supplemental Security Income
benefits increase automatically
each year based on the rise in
the Bureau of Labor Statistics'
"Consumer Price Index for
Urban Wage Earners and
Clerical Workers" from the
third quarter of the prior year
to the corresponding period of
the current year.
This 5.8 percent increase is

::Jacksonville police believe
he back seat passenger, Telv
Coleman, 19, fired the fatal
ih0t that took Brown's fife. It
i, not yet known at, this time
whether Brown was the victint
of a carjacking or if it was an
accidental shooting.
Coleman allegedly told
police he could not remember
vhat happened and was only
chargedd with giving a false
lame.
Witnesses
reportedly told police they
ieard several shots being fired
by police officers, however, no
bullet holes were. found on or
inside the car. Further statements
rom the Jacksonville Sheriff's
Office concluded that none of
ts officers fired their weapons.
There was, however, a shell
casing and gun found inside
he LeSabre, leading police to
believee Coleman shot Brown
from the back seat.
Police soon discovered that
Coleman, 19, of Macclenny,
had an outstanding warrant
from Union County for a home
invasion robbery.


Coleman is wanted in Union
County for an August 2008
home invasion robbery that
took place on SE Second St.
in Lake Butler. Police reports
state that $42 in cash and $100
worth of marijuana was stolen
from the residence.
One victim received 23
stitches to his head after being
struck with a shotgun. Five
men were involved,: in :the
robbery and one suspect, Kodie
Copeland, 20, of Sanderson, is
still at large. It was believed that
Copeland and Coleman, who
are cousins, fled from Union
County together following the
robbery.
It was reported that three
years ago, when Brown was
only 13, he was shot following
a high school football game
in Jacksonville. Jacksonville
authorities also alleged that
back in June, several assault
rifles were seized from the
vehicle Brown was driving,
although he is not the registered
owner of the vehicle.
Union County Sheriff's
Office Lt. Doug York has
said that Coleman remains in
custody in Duval County, and
if no local charges are filed
against him as a result of the
shooting, he will be brought
back to Union County to face

City continues efforts


to work out deal with


Hendricks Turf


More. LBF3 V,5 hp


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Lake Butler City Manager
John Berchtold asked Public
Works Director Hardy Clyatt
to provide a response to a letter
written and read at last month's
commissioner meeting by
Stephanie Hendricks Christmas,
president of Hendricks Turf.
Berchtold said that there
could be a chance Hendricks
may submit a claim that the city
owes them money for renting
an irrigation pump and the use
of their pump back in 2004.
Berchtold was not with the city
during that time, but the public
works director was.
Under a lease agreement,
Hendricks currently owes the
city more than $11,000 for the
city-owned spray field used
by Hendricks to grow sod. In
her letter, Christmas asked the
board to allow them to wait
until March to resume making
regular monthly payment
because of an economic
standstill in the sod business.
Cleat's letter of response
pointed to a number of
inconsistencies in Christmas'
previous statements to the
board. Christmas had stated
that the spray field consisted of
300 acres and Clyatt corrected
that to be only 250 acres.
"Of that 250-acres," Clyatt
said, "only about 200 'can be
used because DEP requires
a 100-foot buffer around the
spray field."
As a reminder to the
commissioners,, Christmas had
also said her company spent
$25,000 on pumps in 2004
because the turbines were not
working properly, and had
financial times not been good
for them at the time, the city
would have incurred that cost.
However, Clyatt's version of
what took place in 2004 differed
from that of Christmas'.
Clyatt explained that the city
has three pumps at the spray
field that supply water for the
sprinklers.
...."In 2004," said Clyatt, "one
of the pumps had a main seal
and a main bearing go out and
both had to be fixed. Another
pump was leaking water, but
was still functional. The third
pump worked fine."
Clyatt said Hendricks wanted
better coverage and took it upon
themselves to rent an irrigation
pump to spray water on the
field where they were growing
and cutting grass as fast as
they could sell it. Hendricks
wanted "This lead to additional
costs because the pumps have

to run all three of the city
pumps at the same time, but it
provided a problem because of
maintenance problems.
"They consulted with me
about installing their own
pumps," Clyatt said, "but in the
end, the city put in three new
pumps at the cost of $75,000."
There was another problem
-with the automatic timers
and Clyatt said the city also
repaired this, resulting in
another $70,000. The $145,000
in repairs was not in the city's
budget.
Clyatt maintains that
Hendricks continued to request
they be allowed to run all
three pumps at the same time,
however, he informed them
the system was not designed
to do this. In effort to reach


a compromise, Hendricks was,
told they could run. all three
pumps, but the city would no
longer be held responsible for
the water lines.
Clyatt also argued against
Christmas' statement last
month to the commissioners
that Hendricks Turf maintains
the facility at no cost to the
city.
"That is a misconception,"
Clyatt said.
He explained that during dry
spells, the city does not have
enough effluent water to supply
Hendricks with sufficient water
for growing sod. To supplement
this, a six-inch well was
needed.

Program serves UC


teens away from home


The Adopt-a-Tiger program
is designed to pair each player
with an educator at the high
school where they can not only
take part in students' education
in the classroom, but also take
part in their extracurricular
activities as well.
The program gives student-
athletes a sort-of parent
away from home-on and
off .the court. Each educator
participating in the program
has adopted a player who has
now become his or her child for
the remainder of the season.

into the retention pond," Clyatt
said. "This also means more
electricity, and more wear and
tear on the pumps and water
lines."
It also, bothered Clyatt that
Hendricks had planned to work
out a deal with the debt they
owed the city by offering to sell
them the land they own adjacent
to the spray field, a deal that
died out when the Department
of Corrections rescinded their
plans to expand the Reception
and Medical Center.

purchase that land "for the cit)

Clyatt said he doesn't even

land is usable for a spray field.

When:. coming before the
board in December, Christmas
and 'Stephen Hendricks again
asked, the city to accept
a promissory note for all
payments until March of 2009,.
Berchtold explained that the
city of Lake Butler's auditor
required collateral be put behind
any amount that is owed for it
to be acceptable. "Otherwise,
its considered under the state
constitution to be a loan,"
Berchtold said.
"It's no' different than a
customer with a water account
who provides a deposit up front
for service. That's the city's
security if the bill is not paid,"
'he said.- -
The commissioners agreed
that Hendricks' five-year lease
agreement set to expire in
March 2009, not be renewed,
: but instead put Hendricks
on a month-to-month lease
agreement.

that," Christmas said.

the repaN ment plan would work
on the outstanding debt. What.
Christmas proposed is that the.
company defer payments until
March next year, and at that
time, they will -begin making
regularly monthly. payments
and also begin working on the
balance in arrears.
It was at this point in the
December meeting that
Stephen.Hendricks brought up
the differences in opinion in the
2004 pump repairs and again
stated that Hendricks put in
$25,000 in pump repairs.
"And we haven't charged you
late fees on this loan, either,"
Cason said.
The matter was tabled until
next .month ..when the city
hopes Hendricks can provide
them with collateral for the
delinquent rent payments.

Stegall said she hates to just
give up her house, but believes
that once she can get her family
into an affordable apartment,
her brother can move the trailer
to his lot and take over the
payments for her.
Her oldest son, Chad, 20,
was never able to complete
high school.
"He has a learning disability
and folJowing a car accident
two years ago, it made things
worse for him," Stegall said.
Chad wants to work, and
has recently received help
obtaining employment and a
ride to work through ARC. She
hopes she will soon be able to
get Chad on Medicaid -for his
health needs.
Chad, Brandon and Brandy
have a variety of gaming
systems they all enjoy, but each
mentioned a new game they'd
like to have this Christmas
season.
Chad, who loves action/
adventure games, said he
would especially like the new
Sonic Unleashed for his Xbox


360 game system. He also
needs another wireless remote
because he loaned his out and
never got it back. For clothing,
he's comfortable in men's size
2X sweat pants, size 3X cotton
shirts and size 13 wide shoes.
Brandon, a Lake Butler
Middle School fifth-grader, is
crazy about football. He likes
to play games on the Xbox
and Playstation 2 and would
really like the Madden '09 and
NCAA '09 games. He also said
he'd like a hoodie-style jacket,
school clothes and a football to
play with. Brandon wears boy's
size 16 in jeans, size 16 boys or
small men's shirts and size six
and one-half in shoes.
Brandy is a third grade student
at Lake Butler Elementary
School. When asking Brandy
what was on .her Christmas
wish list, she immediately said
a bicycle. Brandy also said she
would like some Bendaroos
and Pixos, both popular crafts
toy for children, or even a
Bratz Game for her Game Boy
Advance. Brandy wears girl's
size 14-16 in shirts, ladies size
seven jeans and size four shoes.
Her shoe preference is flip-
flops.
For Judy, she said she'd


really like a pair of brown or
black boots, size 6 1/2 wide.
In clothing, she wears size 14
ladies jeans and likes to wear
large casual pullover shirts.
Something Judy said she never
gets is the opportunity to go out
and relax, and thought a gift
card to go out for a meal or a
movie would be great.
If you would like to help
make this family's Christmas
wishes come true, please contact

Malcolm, Markael, Martella: BHS hoops' triple threat


Three members of
the team are not
only brothers, but
triplets
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
If a basketball coach does a
double take when his team is
taking on Bradford High
School, chances are it's
because he-thinks he's seeing
double. Upon closer
examination, the coach may
realize his eyes are not
deceiving him and come to the
conclusion the Bradford team


has a set of twins.
That is.only partially correct.
Bradford actually has a set
of triplets on the team in
seniors Malcolm, Markael and
Martella Moore. Opposing
coaches and players may
overlook Martella because he's
a fraternal triplet-he does not
share the identical looks of his
brothers.
Martella, the oldest of the
three brothers by six minutes,
is ok with that.
"Not looking like them kind
of gives me my own
individuality," Martella said.
"I'm glad I don't look like
them."


As for Malcolm and'
Markael, they're ok with
looking alike. They both admit
it's cool at times, but also say
it has its drawbacks.
"It's kind of aggravating
sometimes, especially when
people get our names mixed
up," Markael said. "Other than
thaf, it has been cool getting a
lot of attention for it."
Sometimes, they get
unwarranted attention. If either
Malcolm or Markael gets in
trouble at school, for example,
the result is that both get called
to the office, because school


personnel aren't sure who got
into trouble. As Markael put it,
all anyone knows is that it was
"one of the ones who look
alike."
"Martella, he's not even
called to the office or
anything," Markael said.
"You just wish you had your
own identity sometimes,"
Malcolm said.
Unissa Moore, the triplets'
mother who is a teacher at
Bradford High School, said it
is possible to tell her sons
apart. They all have different


personalities, so those who
know them well have no
problem.
Markael confirmed his
mother's assessment, saying
his fellow senior classmates
whom he and his brothers
grew up with can tell the
difference between him and
Malcolm, but there are
underclassmen who ,have no
clue.
"Sometimes younger people
are like, 'Hey, triplet,'"
Markael said. "I do have a
name."
Still, Markael and his


identical brother have had
some fun with their identical
looks.
"We used to switch classes
back in elementary school,"
Markael said. "We did it a
couple of times in middle
school, too."
Malcolm admitted he does
enjoy walking side by side
with Markael because "girls
like that."
In fact, Malcolm and
Markael said they get asked all
the time if they attempt to

woman killed in


Melrose incident


A 36-year-old woman,
Summer J. Smith, was shot in
the head and critically
wounded after she and her
fiance were robbed on Friday
afternoon Dec. 12, around 2:50
p.m. The incident happened
on S.R. 26, just north of
"Melrose-. _
Clint Horvatt, of Bostwick,
told authorities he and Smith,
his fiance, were going to
Gainesville to shop when they
spotted a small pickup on the
side of S.R.26 near Swan Lake
Camp.
Horvatt told officers his
fiance recognized the parked
truck and told him to stop. The
robber exited the passenger
side of his vehicle and
approached the passenger side
of the couple's vehicle. The
robber then demanded the
couple's, valuables and showed
a gun. Smith, an Ormond
Beach resident who was


formerly of Putnam County,
was shot as the two handed
over their valuables.
The robber then fled. Smith
was flown by helicopter to the
Gainesville trauma center
where she was pronounced
dead shortly after 6:30 p.m.
The gunman was described
as a black man in his late 20s,
6 feet tall, wearing a gray
hooded sweatshirt. A drawing
of the suspect was issued on
Monday.
The suspect's vehicle is a
small, red, late 80s or early 90s
model pick-up truck. The truck
is .missing its tailgate, has a
bent-down rear bumper, and
was described as dirty and
junky.
Horvatt has issued a plea for
information. Anyone with any
knowledge of the incident, the
truck or the suspect'should call
Detective John Merchant at
(386) 329-0800.

Taking a look back at 1917


What follows is a look back
in time to the year 1917 in the
pages of th Bradford County
Telegraph. Life was may have
been less hectic back then, but
the citizens of this aea still had
instances of crime, traffic
accidents and general
mischief
Sept. 21, 1917
A slick faker
swindles
many of our
citizens
Remade goose
feather beds with
hen feathers
Was put under bond of
$1,000 for appearance at fall
term circuit court...
The season for fakers in
Starke opened early this year.
It was opened most
auspiciously by one J.P. Black,
who arrived here about 10
days ago and rented suitable
quarters in the southeastern
portion of Starke and put his
belongings, consisting of little
else than some huge packages
of feathers, there. Then Black
started on his rounds to solicit
"business." He wanted feather
beds to clean and remake. He
carried with him a small model
of a feather bed, which looked
very tempting, and his words
were as soft as feathers falling
from angels' wings. Six dollars
per bed was his charge, C.O.D.
He managed to secure about
60 beds to remake, some
customers giving him three or
four beds. After there were no
more feather beds to conquer


in Starke, he and his consort
left, shipping by express
feather packages weighing 200
pounds to Lake City.
Then came the explosion.
Those of our citizens who
sleep on mattresses made of
hair, moss, shucks, cotton
excelsior, or who dream sweet
dreams on the soft side of a
board, are not affected, but
those who rest their more or
less weary limbs on feather
beds are madder than the army
was at Flanders, and it is no
longer safe to sing the old
lullaby -
"Go tell Aunt Dinah,
Go tell Aunt Dinah,
Go tell Aunt Dinah the old
gray goose is dead."
The mine was fired in this
manner, we have been told"'
One of Black's customers,
sleeping on his luxurious
remade bed, dreamed that he
was camping on Smith lake,
that he was lying on the
ground and that a blackjack
snag stuck into the small of his
back. He awoke, found it only
a dream, but still the
protuberance was there. He
ripped open the mattress and
stuck his hand among the
feathers. He found the handle
of a turkey tail duster, with a
few ribs of feathers sticking to
it. As the contents did not
smell right he made a further
investigation and found that
the feathers were not of the
birds that saved Rome, but of
chickens of all the varieties
found in the coops from
Brooker, which adorn the
express platform in Starke
after the arrival of Peggy. Most
of the feathers had not even
been dry picked, hence the


unpleasant odor.
The gentleman found he had
been swindled by Black and
went to others who had
patronized the latter, asking
themrr to see if they had also
been swindled. On examining
their remade beds they found
all sorts of chicken feathers as
well as curly tail feathers of
ducks. One is said to have
found a pair of chicken feet.
The news spread and it seems
that every patron had been
swindled. One had patronized
him to the extent of three beds
and eleven pillows. As goose
feathers are now worth $1 a
pound, and a respectable
feather bed weighs from 40 to
60 pounds, the losses were
serious.
Four of those swindled by
Black swore out warrants
before County Judge Gardiner,
charging Black with grand
larceny. Sheriff Epperson then
started to find the culprit. After
trying Jacksonville in vain, he
went to Lake City and he
found his man there. He
brought him to Starke Tuesday
and placed him in the county
jail.
Wednesday morning Judge
Gardiner held a "bed of
justice," in which Black was
the principal figure. A large
number of the elite of Starke
had been summoned as
witnesses, and the arraignment
promised to be the most
sensational ever held in Starke.
Attorney Joe Hill Williams
was for the defendant and
E.M. Johns, Esq., was the
prosecutor. In the first count
the principal witness submitted
"exhibit A," consisting of
feathers of Rhode Island reds,


black Spanish and barred
Plymouth Rock chickens, but
he could not satisfactorily
answer certain questions put
by the defendant's attorney,
wherefore the latter moved that
the charge against his client
should be only. petit larceny.
However, the court could not
see it that way, but put the
culprit under a bond of $1,000
for his appearance at the fall
term of the circuit court.
Should Black succeed in
furnishing bond, the judge will
try him on another county, as
there are still three, against
him. It is therefore thought that

Editorial/Opinion


Thursday, December 18, 2008 *


Troubled

times
I recently sat in a group
when the subject turned to the
economy, its causes and the
remedies put in place by the
administration and congress.
We really didn't know the
basic reasons the economy
tanked, but as a group, we
blamed an inept congress that
badgered lending agencies to
fund high-risk mortgages for
unqualified individuals. In its
zeal to make everyone a
homeowner, Congress
pressured lending agencies to
violate every concept of
prudent business practices.
Mortgage bankers, ever eager
to get in on the bonanza,
willingly violated good
business tactics and bought
into the scheme that was
doomed to failure from the
first get-go.
It was a consensus of
opinions that the present
economy may deteriorate into
a serious depression
reminiscent of the 1930s.
At this point someone asked,
"What caused the
Depression?"' The stock
market crask, in October 1929
didn't destroy stocks and
bonds of southern, working
families because they didn't
own stock, but the agricultural
south was devastated by the
downturn in the national
economy, which gave rise to
unemployment that drove
wages of remaining jobs to
existence levels. A common
wage for unskilled jobs was $1
a day, and school teachers
earned $75 a month. Many
families retreated te live with
parents on family-owned farms
and growing vegetable gardens
became routine throughout
society. The Depression was
possibly tougher on city
dwellers than on their farming
family and cousins.
Researching the underlying
cause of the Depression
revealed a post-war economy
that flourished as it'sought to
fill demand and excesses
became rampant in all areas of
human endeavor. Highway.
were being built, auiomobiles-
were improving and
proliferating, airplanes were
becoming commonplace and.,
the Jazz Age arrived in the
larger population centers as
people danced the Charleston.
One of the excesses fueled
the Florida land boom, in


which parcels changed hands
several times in one day and
deeds remained unrecorded.
The land boom raged for about
a year and disappeared as
quickly as it began, leaving
many people with worthless
land that later sold for its
taxes. The thought that "the
good times will last forever"
contributed to the
permissiveness of lending
agencies and lack of bank
oversight.
The punitive terms of the
armistice ending World War I
destroyed the. economy of
Germany and engendered
uncontrolled inflation in one of
the industrialized nations of
the world. England and France
stripped Germany of
manufacturing machinery and
tools, and carted the booty off
to their home nations. In 1933,
15 years after the end of World
War I, England and France
demanded another $33 billion
in war reparations, a move that
brought the German nation to
its knees and set the stage for
the rise of Adolph Hitler and
Nazism.
Hitler, a corporal in the
German Army during World
War I, was 31 when the Nazi
Party was formed in 1920 and
moved rapidly to become a
leader in the revolt that toppled
the German Republic. German
currency became virtually
worthless in the unprecedented
inflation, and banking centers
around the world were
affected, although the
economic slow-down in the
United States began earlier
with the crash of the stock
market.

Basic cause of the
Depression
In retrospect, it is difficult to
understand why the causes of


Page 4B


the Depression are largely
unknown by rank-and-file
Americans except to say that
communication as we know it
today did not exist in the early
1930s. Radio was in its
infancy, and television wasn't
even on the horizon. City
newspapers were not delivered
out of town and weekly
newspapers primarily
published local news, leaving a
large part of the population
uninformed about national and
world affairs.
Research of the Internet
provides comprehensive
information concerning the
basic cause of the worst
depression the world has
encountered, casting American
banking as the villain, fueled
by greed and poor business
acumen (perform an Internet
search on "Depression 1933").
From the blog "FDIC Learning
Bank" we read: "It is the
longest and most severe
depression experienced, by the
United States. Its social effects
are staggering. Many banks
failed, many because they have
made loans to stock market
speculators that are never
repaid."
In essence, banks made bad
loans and the public lost
confidence in the banking
system as bank doors closed
and depositors lost their
money. President Herbert
Hoover took a wait-and-see
attitude that didn't work as the
nation sunk deeper into the
morass during his tenure
(1929-32). The .presidential
election in 1932 saw the
electorate abandon Republican
Hoover and elect Democrat
Franklin D. Roosevelt, who
was inaugurated in March
1933..
Prior to the 1932 election,
Congress passed the Hawley-
Smoot Tariff Act of 1930,

which sharply raised tariffs
and brought about retaliation
by foreign nations. The act
succeeded only in preventing
free trade among nations and
prolonging the depression.
The Reconstruction Finance
Act of 1932 provided loans to
banks, saving and loan
associations, credit banks,
mutual savings banks,
industrial banks and life
insurance companies to
stimulate the economy. The
government made loans to
railroads to repay bonded
indebtedness and keep
transportation from defaulting.
The, .Federal Home loan
Bank Act of 1932 established
the Federal Home Loan Bank
Board, which charters and
supervises federal saving and
loan associations. It
established the Federal Home
Loan Banks and gave the
FLHB Board authority to
regulate saving and loan
associations. It also authorized
saving and loan associations to
finance home mortgages.
President Roosevelt moved
at once to declare a bank
holiday following his
inauguration, closing every
bank in the nation while an
audit was conducted.
Nationwide, approximately
4,000 banks and 1,700 saving
and loan associations failed.
President Roosevelt and, his
cabinet proposed dozens of
programs, which were passed
by Congress, many of which
worked as envisioned, but
many failed and were
abandoned, replaced by new
programs. While many were
"Make Work" projects, some
we'e worthwhile,_ long-term


projects, such as the Union
County Courthouse.
In the early years of the
Roosevelt era, the Democrats
undertook a number of steps to
strengthen banking procedures
and rebuild confidence in the
system. In 1933, Congress
passed the Banking Act of
1933, a landmark confidence
builder, established the FDIC
(Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation), in which bank
deposits were insured to the
depositor by a governmental
agency, and established
government oversight of banks
for the first time. The action
was quite successful in
solidifying the banking
industry, but bank failures,
while slowed, were not totally
eliminated.
In 1934, FDIC employed
3,474 people-mostly bank
examiners-and held a fund of
$292' million. Nine FDIC-
Insured banks failed. The three
banks in Starke closed theit
doors during the mid-1930s,
and local businessmen turned
to the Farmers and Dealers
Bank in Lake Butler for the 9-
10 months Starke was without
a bank. Former Lake Butler
bank owner T. Malcolm
Riherd later said it was touch-
and-go, on a day-to-day basis
with the Farmers and Dealers
Bank, and he wasn't always
sure the bank would remain
open. However, the bank
survived the difficult times and
remained in the Riherd family
until recent years.
In 1935, there were 9,027
state banks and 4,692 federal

Use of funds
questioned
Dear Editor:
The rumor that our' most
expensive sheriff in the history
of Bradford County would be
going out of office wasting
more of the taxpayer's money
was confirmed today when I
learned he was using taxpayer
money to throw a big hooten
nanny down at the conference
center. Supposedly upwards of
110 people would, be feasting
on steak and the works at
yours and my expense.
Now, it's not all ole Bob's
fault. Had it not been for
former County Manager Jim
Crawford and the five county
commissioners (at the time)
passing an ordinance allowing
bureaucrats to throw parties at
taxpayers' expense, this
couldn't have happened.
When a couple of current
commissioners were asked
about Bob's partying with
taxpayers' money, the answer
was simple, "Well, the money
was in his budget."
To use the taxpayers' money
this way is one of the lowest
forms of tax abuse.
Any elected official or
bureaucrat who uses our tax
money this way has absolutely
no integrity whatsoever. Any
money used that does not
directly benefit the taxpayer is
abuse of power and authority.
It would behoove our new
sheriff to call for a complete
external audit before taking
office. That is, if there is any
money left to do it with.

banks in the nation, a number
that would remain fairly
consistent until 1980. In 1936,
Fort Knox in Kentucky was
established and built to house
and protect the imposing
amount of gold bullion held by
the treasury.
In 1938, there were 74
FDIC-insured bank failures,
but the insuring agency wvat
able to make whole every
depositor. Today, deposits are
insured up to $100,000 for
each separate account, funded
100 percent by banks that pay
19 cents per $100 deposit.
Even though deposits were
insured for a lesser amount
early on, FDIC has been able
to pay out deposits up to
$100,000 for each account.
The FDIC has been one of the
federal government's better
programs since its inception.
Some good programs came
out of the Depression years,
but mid-1930s war
preparations brought an end to
unemployment. Camp
Blanding, which began
construction in 1940, provided
employment for thousands
who lived within driving
distance. Carpenters worked
48 hours a week and were paid
$1 per hour, straight time.'
Timekeepers were paid $35
per week, with all employees
being paid in cash on Fridays.
The only payroll deduction
was 2 percent for Social
Security. Deductions for WHT
would begin in 1943, as I
remember.
Since the war years of 1941-
45, the United States has seen
a number of recessions of short

situation bids to be more

than anything experienced
since the Great Depression of
the 1930s.

Classic, a youth football
tournament held in Panama
City during Thanksgiving
weekend.
The event, which featured
teams from across the United

over a three-day period. Hayes
played a big part in his team's
road to the championship in
the 11 -year-old-and-under
division. He played for the
Callaway Drillers, an all-star
team.
Hayes rushed for 80 yards
on six carries, scoring once, in
his team's first game-a
shutout of the Henderson
Warriors from Nashville. He
made his mark on defense, as
well, making 12 tackles.
In an 18-6 win over the
North Henry, Ga., Blue Devils,
Hayes rushed for 50 yards and
punched in two two-point
conversion attempts. That sent
the Drillers into the
championship game against
the Hendersonville, .La.,

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was the lowest point total
in the past eight wins for the
Union County girls' basketball
team, yet it was still a lopsided
affair that saw the Tigers
defeat visiting Chiefland 48-22
on Dec. 15.
The Tigers (9-1), whose
only loss up to this point has
come against a Class 4A
team-regional playoff
participant Bishop Kenny-
have won their last eight
games by an average margin of
45 points. Union built a 39-
point lead in the second half
against Chiefland before a
running clock was employed.
Union struggled with its
shooting, making 38 percent of
its field-goal attempts in the
first half, but was able to take a
37-9 lead into the half.
Sharmaine Couch was a big
reason for that as she scored 14
of her game-high 22 points in
the second quarter.
Chiefland actually scored
the first basket of the second
quarter, but a basket by Couch,
following her own steal,
started an 18-1 run. Couch
scored the first 14 points of
that run as she connected on a
pair of 3-pointers as well as
making two baskets while
being fouled. She made both
free throws following those
- fouls.
Defense was another key for
the Tigers, who forced the
Indians into committing 23
turnovers in. the first half.
Couch had five' steals in the
half, while Ashli Watkins had
four.
Watkins and Amber Stewart
also scored in double figures
for the Tigers with 12 and 11
points, respectively.


Union scoring (60): Couch 15,
Mitchell 9, Kiara Rueddel 1,
Stewart 31, Watkins 4. 3-

Nearly an
accident
Tuesday afternoon L.L.
Leach backed his two-horse
wagon to the rear door of the
Young Trading Company's
store to put on a load of
fertilizer. While he was inside
an automobile, said to be'from
Lawtey and driven by a little
girl, came. suddenly dashing
around a box car standing
nearby and toward the horses,
stopping only in time to keep
from running into the team. If
there had been a collision
those in the car would have
been hurt and someone would
have had to pay for the damage
to the horses. As it was the
horses plunged around and
broke the tongue of the wagon
in two places.
Driving automobiles in
crowded places is too serious a
business to trust to little girls.

Halloween
pranks
Those who visited the streets
in the business portion of
Starke early Thursday morning
probably thought enlarged
editions of flying squirrels
must have played their pranks
there the night before. The
streets were barricaded with
boxes, wagons, signs, waste
baskets, and, in fact, anything
movable, including wire
fencing. A mental picture of
the scene reveals our worthy
night marshal hastening to any
point from where a noise
proceeded, only to collide
against an overturned wagon
or b tripped 'up by wire--
entanglements.
The celebrants of
Hallowe'en had included the
High School in he'ir itinerary.
Seats and tables were
overturned and the floors
littered with boxes and papers,
to the great horror of, at last,
the female portion of the
faculty. But no windows were
broken or arty real damage
done.
J.O. Fralick's front gate was
p,4ryied,, ,awy,, and at,, ,tthis
writingg it has not been found.
Our marshal was on the
scene early and was the only
person in town who took the
case seriously. After helping to
get the plows, disc harrows
and other obstructions off the
streets, he summoned Mr.


Mercer, the town scavenger,
and he got together his squad
of "white wings" and soon had
the streets clean again.
It mia not be something you
are aware of, but prior to the
earlV 1900s, livestock roamed
freely and it was. the
responsibilitV of each property
owner to put up fences if they
wanted the livestock kept off
their property. In .1917, Starke
was trying to pass an
ordinance that made it the
responsibility of the livestock
owner to keep his or her
animals of property in town.

Bradford coach sees promise with this year's wrestlers


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Joe Van Vactor is excited
about this year's Bradford
High School wrestling team,
and the return of state
qualifiers Billy Brooks and
Casey Hines is only part of the
reason.
Van Vactor, who is in his
second year as Bradford coach,
said he can envision five to six
wrestlers earning trips to the
state finals this year, and he
hopes every team member will
advance from the district finals
to the regional finals. One
reason for Van Vactor's
optimism is the mindset of this
year's team members. He said
the wrestlers put personal
goals aside and are eager to do
anything to help the team.
"I've never had a crew like
this before," Van Vactor said.


Leading that crew are
Brooks and Hines, who are
each eyeing their third straight
trip to the state finals. Brooks
and Hines each won their
respective weight classes at a
Nov. 22 tournament. at
Neptune Beach, then followed
that up with top performances
at a tournament hosted by
Bradford Dec. 12-13. Hines
went undefeated in that
tournament.
"That kid is just
unbelievable," Van Vactor said
of.Hines, who placed third in
the state in the 215-pound
class last year. "He just gets
better and better and better."
Brooks, a two-time
defending district champion,
went 6-1 in the tournament.
Van Vactor said three of
Brooks' wins came against
quality kids who will most
likely make their marks at the


state finals in Class 2A.
Bradford wrestles in Class A.
"He found ways to win,"
Van Vactor said of Brooks.
Also going 6-1 at the
Bradford tournament was
Shawn Boyette, who also
placed first at the Neptune
Beach tournament with Brooks
and Mines. Boyette, along with
Dylah White, who went 5-2 at
the Bradford tournament, are
both[ doing the things
necessary to make it to state.
"They're getting there," Van
Vactor said.
The. Bradford coach is
naturally excited about the
potential of Boyette and
White, who both qualified for
the regional finals last year,
but he is even more excited
about several younger
Wrestlers, including Bryan
Blackshear, Chauncey
Goodman and Devin Paulk.


Bradford wrestlers (1-r) Shawn Boyette, Casey Hines and Billy Brooks each took
first place at a Neptune Beach tournament.

What the brothers like about
the team is its closeness. Not
.only do you have three
brothers in Malcolm, Markael
and Martella, but you have two
brothers in Eugene and Darrin
Blye. Plus, Martella said every
other member of the team is
related in some way. If they're
not brothers, they're first or
second cousins.
"Most of us have grown up
together," Martella said.
"Some have been our best
friends for years and years,"
Markael said. "It's a really,


really close basketball team."
Once this season's over,
there will be no more double
takes from opposing coaches,
but could future basketball
teams-whether at Bradford
High School or somewhere
else-be composed of Moore
triplets? Neither brother is
opposed to one day raising his
own set of triplets, though
Malcolm and Markael say they
would definitely want boys.
"I could take having two
boys and one girl," Markael
said, "but a bunch of girls..."


Markael's voice trailed off at
the thought of raising three
daughters the same age, while
Martella joked that he would
want to check his future wife's
genetic background to make
sure she was not predisposed
to giving birth to multiple
children at once. He conceded,
however, he would not be
opposed to raising multiples-
within reason.
"I guess it would be nice to
raise triplets," Martella said,
"but I wouldn't want to mess
around and have septuplets."


Tornadoes defeat Santa Fe


for another district win

Bradford's opponents may be a little confused when they look at the Tornadoes'
starting lineup, thanks to triplets (1-r) Markael, Martella and Malcolm Moore.

confuse members of the
opposite sex by swapping
places with each other. No,
they don't do that, Markael
said, though Malcolm
reminded him of one incident
during a football game at
Fleming Island High School.
"There was a girl I was
talking to," Markael said. "I
just wanted to play a little joke
on her. I told her to meet me
somewhere. Then I told
Malcolm to go talk to her to
see if she'd catch on. She
didn't."
Mark McGraw, the head
coach of the Bradford High
School varsity basketball team,
said Malcolm and Markael
have nevei attempted to try to
swap places to confuse him,
though he did joke with them
about swapping jerseys during
the half of a game if the--one
who was scoring the most
points got in foul trouble.
McGraw would never really
ask them to do that, however.
Right?
"I just joke with them, but
it's a thought," McGraw said
with a laugh. "If we're playing
in the state championship
game, you have to do what you
have to do."
No matter which jersey the
Moore brothers are wearing, it
is a good thing to have all
three of them on the court at
the same time, McGraw said.
They tend to know what each
other is going to do and where
on the court they will be at any
given time.
"Being that we grew up
together, we kind of know
what each other's thinking on
the court," Malcolm said. "We
have a chemistry. Three out of
five having that chemistry is
pretty good."
For Unissa Moore, the
triplets' mother, it's just a joy
to watch her sons play.
"It's really a proud moment
when all three of them are on
the court," she said. "It's a
great feeling."
Markael admitted he always
tries to outshine his brothers
on the court because that's just

his nature. However, all three
said they work together within
McGraw's system to do
whatever is best for the team.
Martella, for example, said he
will sometimes try to show up
his brothers in practice, but
that's not his mindset come
game time.
"In game situations,
everyone has their role to play
on the team in order for the
team to be successful,"
Martella said. "I just play the
role that I'm given."
As Martella alluded to,
practices can be a different
story. McGraw said Malcolm
and Markael, in particular, "go
at it neck and neck."
"Last year, I used to put
them on each other because I
knew I would have a battle,"
McGraw said. "Now I try to
keep them away from each
other. I don't want them to go
home arguing about what went
on in practice."
Competition among the
brothers is only natural,
though. Unissa Moore said her
sons have always been
competitive, whether it's on
the basketball court or in the
classroom.
Sometimes that competition
can lead to disagreements.
Martella said sometimes
people look at him and his
. brothers and see them
constantly fighting with each
other, but as he put it, "That's
just what brothers do."
It has certainly made for a
lively household al tfnis.
"There's never a dull
moment," Unissa Moore said.
"There's always some activity
going on."
Unissa said she knew her
family's hands would be full
as soon as she realized she was
going to give birth to triplets.
However, multiple family
members throughout Bradford
County have all lent their
support, especially when the
triplets were younger.
"We always had someone
there coming in all the time to
help us," Unissa said.
Not only is the Moore
household composed of
triplets, but Malcolm, Markael
and Martella have twin sisters
who are four years younger
than them.
"There are a lot of us,"
Malcolm said.

Of course, when next year's
Bradford High School
graduation rolls around, the
Moore household will lose
three children at one time.
"I anticipate our lives
slowing down a lot with them
being gone and out of the
house," Unissa said.
Not that mom wants them to
go far. She would like to see
all three of them attend Florida
colleges.
When the brothers do go to
college, will they split up?
Unissa said Markael and
Martella have expressed an
interest in attending the same
school, but she thinks Malcolm
would rather go somewhere
different.
Malcolm said it would not
be a bad thing if all three
attended the same school, but
he said in all likelihood, that's
not going to happen. He and
his brothers have accepted the
fact that they may split up after
high school. "
"We're growing up,"
Markael said. "We've got to
go our. different ways
sometime."
"It has to happen," Martella
said.
However, the brothers still
have approximately five
months of high school left,
which includes their last
season of playing high school
basketball. The brothers have
high hopes for this year's
team, which was 4-1 prior to
its Dec. 16 game. Markael said
his personal goal is for the
tedin to make it to the state
finals in Lakeland.
"I don't see anybody getting
in our way and stopping us,"
he said.
Martella said the team does
have the potential to make it to
Lakeland, but he said, "It's
going to take a lot of hard
work for us to make it that
far."

Indians win

another

basketball
game in OT

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
If the early season is any
kind of indicator, the Keystone
Heights boys' basketball team
is in for an exciting race
toward the District 6-3A
crown. The Indians were
involved in two straight six-
point district games and won
their second district contest in
overtime when they defeated
visiting Interlachen 50-44 on
Dec. 12.
Keystone (2-2, 2-1 in
District 6 prior to Dec. 16)
opened district play with a
two6-'point, overtime win over
Union County, but then
followed that up with a 54-48
district loss to Crescent City.
The Indians were in danger of
losing by three to Interlachen,
but Wes Rund bailed them out,
hitting a 3-pointer with no time
left in regulation to send the
game into overtime.
Rund, who finished with


five long-range bombs, led the
team with 19 points. He was
joined in double figures by
Dalton Campbell, who scored
12 points to go along with his
team-high six rebounds.
Nathan Buchanan dished out
six assists for the Indians, who
outscored the Rams 10-4 in the
overtime period.
Keystone was actually shut
out in the second quarter as the
Rams took a 20-8 lead at the
half.
The Indians rallied by
outscoring Interlachen 23-11
in the fourth quarter.
Keystone played district
opponent Pierson Taylor this
past Tuesday and will play in a
tournament at Oak Hall in
Gainesville beginning Dec. 18.

boys break
winless streak
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was an almost a three-
week stretch without a victory,
but Justin Hedding. helped the
Keystone Heights boys' soccer
team end that drought, scoring
four goals and assisting on two
others in consecutive wins
over Crescent City and
Middleburg last week.
The Indians (5-4-2 prior to
Dec. 16) went through a
stretch where they settled for
ties in two straight matches
before losing three straight.
One of those losses was to
-District 5-3A-opponent-Piersonr
Taylor on Dec. 5. That left
Keystone with a 1-1 record
after its first two district
matches, but .,.the ndians
improved that record to 2-1
with a 3-1 win over visiting
Crescent City Dec. 11.
Keystone, coming off of a 3-
0 loss to Class 4A Ridgeview,
played a scoreless first half
against the Raiders, but
Hedding finally put the Indians
on the board when he scored
off of a Zak Davis assist seven
minutes into the second half.
Approximately 11 minutes
later, Hedding got the assist on
a goal scored by Austin
Groves that put the Indians up
2-0. Hedding made the score
3-0 when he scored an
unassisted goal .in the 61st
minute.
Crescent City scored its lone,
goal in the last two minutes.
Heading into its Dec. 12
match against visiting
Middleburg, Keystone was 0-

However, the Indians got two
goals from Hedding in a 4-1
win over the Class 4A
Broncos.
Middleburg took a 1-0 lead,
scoring in the sixth minute.
That score stood until
approximately five minutes
remained in the half when
Keystone's Trey Bland scored
off of a Hedding assist.
Bland helped give the
Indians the lead early in the
second half when he set up
