A library cooperative is
created when several libraries
share resources while still
maintaining their own
administrative independence.
Such an entity was created
in 1996 when the county
commissions of Baker,
Bradford and Union counties
got together and formed the
New River Public .Library
Cooperative (NRPLC).
The idea of the NRPLC
began when one of the libraries
was in danger of losing state
aid because it could not afford
to employ a director who had
a master's degree in library
science-a degree which
NRPLC's Ginny Bird holds.
Together, the three counties
share Ginny Bird as MLS
director of the cooperative.
The state requires the tri-
county cooperative to have a
central advisory board through
which state funds can be
distributed to the participating
libraries. The NRPLC
advisory board consists of
two commissioners from each
county who make the decisions
and polices to keep the tri-
county libraries consistent.
Bird reports to Eddie Lewis
and Doyle Thomas in Bradford
County, Mark Hartley and
. Michael Crews in Baker
County afid\Karen Cossey and
Morris Dobbs'in Union County,
with Union serving as the
host county for all three. The
NRPLC office is located at 110
N. Lake Ave. in Lake Butler.
Bird has served 20 years in
the business of public libraries


.New River Public Library Cooperative MLS Director Ginny Bird stands among several
of the co-op's story boxes that contain theme-based reading books and lesson plans
to help younger children learn about new things.


and has seen all three libraries
reach many milestones. She
has chased down and applied
for numerous grants and other


types of state and- federal
funding to assist the co-op's
three thriving libraries.
Bird worked diligently to


obtain grantsandfederal funding
to open Union County's first
public library in 1989. Hired as
the library's first director, she


,was instrumental in helping it
grow from a 1,300-square-foot
building holding just over 3,000
books to a 3,200-square-foot
building with more than 30,000
books. Now she anxiously waits
as Union's new building-nearly
triple in size-is getting closer
to being completed.
Bradford was the first of the
libraries in the co-op to grow
into a new building. Located in
Starke, the county's first public
library opened in 1975 with
the capacity to hold 20,000
books. In October of 2007,
the Bradford County Public
Library completed its new
19,480-square-foot building,
nearly five times the size of the
previous building.
Baker County's library is
located in Macclenny. Built in
1908, it originally served as
the Baker County Courthouse
until 1945. In 1970, it became
the Emily Taber Public
Library. Because the library is
housed in a historical building,
it offers a unique set-up for
displaying library materials.
The former courthouse offices
were converted into rooms
that shelve books by genre.
For example, mysteries are all
located in one room, westerns
in another.
Unfortunately, to keep its
historical building status, an
elevator could not be built to
allow access to materials on the
second floor, although library
staff are happy to go upstairs
and get materials for patrons
unable to use the stairway.
Recently, Baker County
accepted; a $500,000 grant
to expand its current facility,

News from the UCSO police blotter...


Teen runs over child,
3 vehicles stolen
during holidays

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
On the morning of Saturday,
Jan. 3, a child was run over at
the Piney Bay Hunt Club on
C.R. 238 in Union County.
A 14-year-old female got
behind the wheel of a pickup
truck and put' it into reverse
to allow another vehicle to
pass on a narrow tram road.
The report from the Union
County Sheriff's Office states
that the vehicle had backed up
approximately 10 feet when the
teen driver inadvertently ran
over the torso of seven-year-
old William Shands Howard.


A witness at the scene took
Howard to Lake Butler Hospital
where he was stabilized and
later transported by Union
County EMS to Shands UF
in Gainesville for further
treatment. One of the victim's
grandparents, Lori Howard,
said that as of Tuesday
morning, the tot, remains in
pediatric intensive care, but is
progressing. A full recovery is
expected.

Teens allegedly steal
school vehicle
Two Union County teens
have been charged by sworn -
complaint following .the theft
of Union County High School's
agriculture department pickup
truck.
Just after 11 p.m. on Dec.
25, Deputy David Shane of the
Union County Sheriff's Office
was on patrol near Union


County High School when he
observed a white Ford pickup
truck traveling at a high rate of
speed on 11th Street.
Shane reported he attempted
to catch up to the vehicle and
spotted it traveling through the
back yard of a residence with
its lights off. The truck then
entered S.R. 121 and turned into
the parking lot at the Outpost
school, again shutting off the
lights. Shane reported he kept a
visual on the vehicle as it began
to drive, aggressively in circles
behind the 'Outpost.
Shane reported that as he
pulled into the parking lodt at the
Outpost, the truck accelerated,
then came to -an abrupt stop
as the driver jumped out and
started to run into the woods.
Shane said he recognized the
suspect as 15-year-old Jamal
Lamar Edwards and ordered
him to stop, however Edwards
continued to flee on foot.


An RMC K-9 unit was
dispatched, but was unable
to locate Edwards, but did,
however, find an article of
clothing 'that possibly belongs
to the suspect. Fingerprint
evidence was also taken from
the vehicle. Edwards was later
charged with burglary, grand
theft auto and resisting arrest.
An additional charge of dealing
in stolen property was added
when, several days later, a
second suspect, Dontrell Juwan
Larry, 18, admitted to also
driving the truck after obtaining
it from Edwards. A warrant
for the same charges is being
issued against Larry.
Lt. Lyn Williams said that
the school was shut down for
Christmas break during the
time of the theft and had the
deputy not spotted the activity,
it is likely the theft would not
of been discovered until classes
resumed Jan. 5.


"By that time, the truck may
have been taken to another
location, perhaps long gone,
but an alert deputy stopped it
from going any further than
just joyriding," Williams said.

Two vehicle thefts
bring in the new
year
Two vehicle thefts took place
on New Year's Day. Around
2 a.m., a resident on SW
89tn Street awoke to find her

without permission. It was
recovered the next day by the
victim in an area suspected of

vehicle declined to file charges

The Union County Public
Library was recently presented
with an autographed copy of
Andrew Peterson's latest book,
"On the Edge of the Dark Sea
of Darkness, The Wingfeather
Saga, Book One," published by
Waterbrook Press, a subsidiary
of Random House.
Peterson is an author and
singer-songwriter of Christian
folk music who resides in
Nashville, Tenn., with his wife
Jamie, sons Aedan and Jesse,
and daughter Skye. He is the
son of minister Arthur and
Janis Peterson of First Christian
Church of Lake Butler.
"On the Edge of the Dark
Sea of Darkness" is the first in
a series of fantasy/adventure
novels children of all ages
will cherish, families can read
aloud, and reader groups are
sure to discuss for its layers
of meaning about life's true
treasures and tangles of the


beautiful and the horrible,
temporal and eternal, and the
good and the bad.
In his book, Peterson spins
a whimsical fantasy novel that
will appeal to both adult and
young adult readers. When
the three Igiby siblings find a
mysterious map, they embark
on an adventure to discover
family secrets about the father
they never knew and a hidden
treasure that many have long
desired to find.
Leeli, the youngest, can sing
with a beauty that captivates
dragons; Tink, the middle
sibling, has the makings of: a
king; and Janner, the eldest,
possesses a bravery that will
protect them all. But the
children's curiosity get the
entire Igiby family into trouble

Coast Guard Fireman
Apprentice Brantley Sweat, the
son of Deneen C. and Delmar E.
Sweat of Lake Butler, recently
graduated from the U.S. Coast
Guard Recruit Training Center
in Cape May, NJ.
Sweat, a 2004 Union
County High School graduate,
completed an eight-week
vigorous training program
consisting of academics and
practical instruction on water
safety and survival, military


customs and courtesies,
seamanship skills, first aid, fire
fighting and marksmanship. A
major emphasis was also placed
on physical fitness, health and
wellness.
Sweat also received
instruction on the Coast Guard's
core values-honor, respect
and devotion to duty-and
how to apply them in military
performance and personal
conduct.
Men and women train
together from the first day in
the Coast Guard, just as they
do aboard ships and shore
units throughout the world. To
reinforce the team concept,
Sweat and the other recruits
were trained in preventing
sexual harassment, drug and
alcohol awareness, civil rights,
and the basics of the work-life


balance, as well as total quality
management.
Sweat will be stationed
aboard the USCG Cutter Munro
out of Kodiak, Alaska.

On a tour of the Union Correctional Institution were (clockwise from front row center) District 12 State Rep. Janet
Adkins, Warden Milton Hicks, CO Mark Covlngton, Region II Director Mark Redd, Assistant Warden-Programs
Susan Robinson, Assistant Warden-Operations Luther Polhill, Colonel Dwight Mallard, Classification Supervisor
Ronnie Woodall, Classification Supervisor Michael Davis and Region II Assistant Warden Lee Colson.



State representative tours UCI


Newly elected Republican
State Representative Janet
Adkins conducted tours of the
local state correctional facilities
on Dec. 1.
Adkins spoke with
correctional officers, wardens
and staff regarding the needs
of the expected reductions in
state budgets due to the lagging
economy. State economists
project Florida lawmakers will
be forced to reduce the current
state budget by $2 billion this
year, and that number could
climb higher next year.
"I was impressed with the


professionalism and dedication
of the staff I visited with
during my tour of the Union
Correctional Institution and
PRIDE facilities," Adkins
said. "Florida is fortunate
to have dedicated public
safety professionals serving
under Warden Hicks and his
team at Union Correctional
Institution."
Adkins added that the tour of
UCI was an excellent chance to
learn more about how the state's
corrections professionals keep
Floridians safe. After of tour,


Adkins was convinced the state
should continue to maintain
its high standards of security
within its prisons.
"The need to ensure
appropriate staffing levels at
our prisons is a paramount
priority and one that should be
reflected in our state budget,"
she said.
As legislators consider
additional budget cuts, Adkins
will be working to protect public
safety jobs at the correctional
facilities.
Additional correctional
facilities tours are expected


to be conducted in the near
future to give Adkins a working
understanding of all facilities
within District 12 and their
Unique challenges.
Of Adkins' visit, Region II
Director Mark Redd said, "We
really appreciate the interest
and concern demonstrated for
our staff and the tough job they
so diligently complete day in
and day out."

Dear Editor:
The Union County school
district has just moved closer
to one of the many targeted
goals they have set for this
school year. As you all know
by now, every child in the state
of Florida must pass the Florida
FCAT test to graduate from
high school. This test is both
rigorous and relevant. Students
who pass this test and graduate
can stand tall and be proud.
This test says to both colleges

and the future employers of
these students that they are
intelligent and hard working.
The FCAT is so difficult that
not everyone passes it on the
first attempt. Those who do not
pass the first time have several
opportunities to retake the test.
In October, FCAT retakes were
given. These test results ha,-:
just returned, and Union Count v
High School is experiencing the
sweet taste of success, ranking
second highest in the state for
retake students successfully
passing the math portion of the
FCAT test. They also rankit.

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



KH native helps numbers tell the story in sports books


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
What was the score? How
many yards did a certain
player pass for or rush for?
How many runs did a player
drive in? What was a pitcher's
ERA? What was a player's
performance at the free-throw


line?
So much of sports centers on
numbers-many people are
downright obsessed by them.
Therefore, Keystone Heights
High School graduate David
Home and two of his friends
put two and two together and
have started writing a series of


books devoted* to sports and
numbers.
Home, Daniel Brush and
Marc Maxwell created the
"Sports by the Numbers"
series-books on a particular
sport or team that assign a fact,
piece of trivia, record, etc. to a
specific number. The books


David Horne (second from left) is pictured with fellow authors Dan Brush (far left)
and Marc Maxwell (far right). The trio is pictured with former Sooners coach Barry
Switzer.

Horne: well-traveled since leave


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The quick success of the
"Sports by the Numbers"
series of books has provided
quite a bit of excitement in
David Home's life, but his life
was already pretty exciting as
he and his wife, the former
Lisa Bryant, have had the
chance to travel and,
experience other cultures.
Home and his wife have
spent the past nine years living
abroad. Home currently
teaches eighth-grade history at
Ramstein Air Base in Germany
after working as an athletic
director in Korea.
"It's been an amazing
experience," Home said.
He was content with his life
in Keystone, Horne said, but
he could not pass up the
opportunity to leave and go to


Korea in 1999, where he
worked as an athletic director.
for a high school for three
years.
Getting there was not easy.
"We got stranded in Tokyo,"
Home said. "Our plane broke
down. It was an adventure just
getting there."
If he and Lisa wanted to
return home to see their
families, it was a 41-hour trip.
Still, Horne said the trade-off
was worth it. He visited too
many countries to count, he
said, taking sports teams to
places such as China,
Singapore, Japan, Taiwan and
Guam.
"To take 40 students on a
weeklong trip to Japan for a
soccer tournament or to take
40 middle school students on a
study trip to Hong Kong for a
week-those kinds of


experiences really shape your
perspective on things. It was
phenomenal."
Sports has always been a big
part of Horne's'life, but since
his move to Germany, he has
been strictly a teacher. He
admitted he misses coaching
and going on trips with ball
teams, but his current job is
fulfilling. He not only teaches
middle-school students at
Ramstein Air Base, the U.S.
Air Forces headquarters in
Europe, but teaches college
classes for military members.
"It's a very cool thing,"
Home said. "To be able to
teach not only the children of
military personnel who are
deployed, but to actually get to
teach the military personnel
themselves is a pretty
remarkable experience."
Life in Germany has been


are composed of 10 chapters
detailing each number from 1
to 1,000.
The series began with a
book on University of
Oklahoma football, which has
since been joined by books on
University of Georgia football,
NASCAR and the New York
Yankees. More are scheduled
to come out this year.
"We feel like each book
continues to get better," said
Home, a 1988 Keystone
Heights High School graduate.
"We've got five more books
coming out in the spring, with
more scheduled for next fall.
It's exciting."
Sports and numbers may
have seemed like a winning
formula, but Home said the
quick success has been
somewhat of a surprise. He
and his friends were
envisioning a more modest
beginning.
The number 3-jersey for
Babe Ruth, which was retired
by the Yankees in 1948. The
number 12-home run titles
for Ruth.
The numbers 3 and 12 are
also noteworthy in that they
relate to the number of books
Home and his friends first had
in mind when they approached
a publisher and what that
number wound up actually
being.
"We pitched it as an idea


ring area
different from life in Korea.
For one thing, Lisa has been
able to work again in the
medical field. She is employed
at Landstuhl Regional Medical
Center.
"In Korea, Lisa was not able
to work," Home said. "There's
nothing there. There was
literally nothing for her to do."
Then there's the matter of
travel. Home said returning to
"SHORE "p. 3B


that this could be a sports
series, but we were thinking
three or four books, or
something like that," Home
said. "When they offered us a
contract, they said 12. It just
happened a lot faster than we
thought."
The idea to write such books
came about when the trio
was-and this should be no
surprise-watching sports.

Andrews
Center
concert is 'All
Strung Out'
"All Strung Out" will be
performed by the Gainesville
Chamber Orchestra this
Sunday, Jan. 11, at the Santa
Fe College Andrews Center
Cultural Building on 209 W.
" Call St. in Starke.
Admission is free for this
concert, which is a part of the
ongoing Bradford Fest.
"'We call it 'All Strung Out'
because we're spotlighting
three new string performances
and because we're premiering
a concerto that hasn't been
played since the 1800s," said
Virginia Lamboley, personnel
manager for the Gainesville
Chamber Orchestra.
Will Kang is the orchestra's
new concert master. He is a
former violinist with the
Florida Orchestra in Tampa
and now studies medicine at
the University of Florida.
Yefim Romanov is a new
violinist with the orchestra.
Lamboley said, "He's a
hotshot young virtuoso who
won the UF concerto
competition last October."
Mark Lewis is the
orchestra's new violist. He is
studying for his master's
degree in music education at
UF.
The orchestra's world
premiere is "Concerto Per il
Contrabasso and Orchestra" by
Domenico Dragonetti.
"Our principal bass player,
Steven Landis, found this
composition in a music archive
in England," Lamboley said.
"Photocopying was forbidden,
so he spent days painstakingly
transcribing it to bring it
home."
Other composers featured in
the concerts will be Luigi
Boccherini, Johann Sebastian
Bach, Antonin Dvorak and
Claude Debussy.
Lamboley said the orchestra
is highlighting different
families of instruments in its
performances this year. As
strings are being featured this
month, flutes will be
emphasized in the group's
February concert.


Evans Haile is the
orchestra's conductor.
"All Strung Out" is
sponsored in part by Santa Fe
College and the SFC
Foundation. It is part of
Bradford Fest, a four-month
celebration of community and
cultural events in Starke.

Bradford's Demetria Slocum drives to the basket and
draws a foul in a 52-50 win over Union County.


Slocum's 43 points

help BHS avenge


58-point loss


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Demetria Slocum made two
free throws with six seconds
remaining to cap a 43-point
night and give the Bradford
girls' basketball team a 52-50
win over Union County Jan. 5
in Starke.
Bradford (6-8) struggled
when Slocum was coping with
a high ankle sprain, losing
seven games during an eight-
game stretch. The injury
occurred in the Tornadoes' 58-
point loss to Union on Nov.
25.
However, Slocum appears to
be back in form now, having
averaged 28.5 points a game as
she's led the Tornadoes to
three wins in their last four
games.
Still, Union (9-3) did-hold-a-
13-pointlead .at-the half of.the
second game'between the two
teams. Slocum scored 10
points in the first three minutes
of the second half and scored
22 third-quarter points to send
the game into the fourth
quarter tied at 37-all.
Slocum hit two 3-pointers on
consecutive trips down the
court to pull Bradford within
28-21 early in the third quarter.


The baskets were part of a 10-
0 run, but the Tigers finally
ended the drought when
Amber Stewart scored off of a
Sharmaine Couch steal to put
Union up by seven.
Another trey by Slocum later
made it a four-point game.
Union's Ashli Watkins made
two free throws, but
Bradford's Courtney Cragg cut
the Tigers' lead back to four
when she hit a floater in the
lane.
Stewart put the Tigers up by
five with a free throw, but
Slocum would drive the length
of the floor, score and draw a
foul with 1:08 left in the third.
Slocum's ensuing free throw
made it a 35-33 game.

wanted to," Horne said. "That
was how it started, right there
in the restaurant. We started
writing it out on napkins."
The three men had a draft of
the first chapter of a book on
Oklahoma football three weeks
later. Two different publishers
offered contracts six weeks
after that.
"It happened pretty quickly,"
Horne said.
Starting out by writing a
book on Oklahoma football
made sense since Horne and
his friends were there in
Norman taking classes. Since
they were students at
Oklahoma, it allowed them
access to many helpful people
at the school, including the
football team's head coach.
The number 100-walks for
Bernie Williams of the Yankees
in 1999. _
In terms of the start of the
"Sports by the Numbers"
series, the number 100 is pretty
special in that it was how
many of the Oklahoma football
books that were personally
signed by Sooners coach Bob
Stoops to raise money for his
charity, the Bob Stoops
Champions Foundation.
Stoops also wrote the foreword
to the book.
The trio also met with
former Sooners coach Barry
Switzer. They had lunch at his
house, with Switzer reading
the book and pointing out his
personal involvement and
memories of some of' the
book's entries. Switzer even
penned some words of praise
for the trio to use in promoting
their book.
Home said it was an
experience he will always
treasure, but meetings with
Switzer and Stoops were just
part of an overall surreal
experience.
"We did several book
signing in the Oklahoma
area," Horne said. "We even
did signing on the field with
the OU football team. They
had their media day. That was
pretty cool."
However, Home, a huge
baseball fan who, played and
coached the sport at Keystone
Heights High School, admitted
the book on the Yankees was
the project he was most
passionate about up to this
point. The- book,-has also been"
the best-selling of theiseries. - ;
The number 50-saves
compiled by the Yankees'
Mariano Rivera in 2001.
What else does the number
50 represent? It represents just
how popular the "Sports by the
Numbers" Yankees book has
been.
"Over the past few weeks,
.on any given day, you'll find
it's one of the top 50 baseball
books on Amazon," Home
said. (The same can be said of
the Oklahoma football book
among college football books.)
The trio knew the Yankees
book-as well as the
NASCAR-book would have
a broader appeal than the


HORNE

the States is no longer a big
deal. It's just a seven-hour
flight.
In fact, Home makes quite a
few trips, whether it's to the
States or other places. He takes
classes and teaches at the
University of Oklahoma,
where he is working toward a
doctorate degree, and attends
various conferences. Home
said it sometimes feels like
he's hardly working.
"It's funny. I probably miss
more days of school than is
good," he said. "I don't think
teachers here would ever think
of missing school as much as
teachers do over there. Life is
so different. The demands of
the job are so different over
there, too. It's hard to describe.
You do have a lot of different
responsibilities and a lot of
different things that come up
that you're asked to do."
Since Home and his friends
Daniel Brush and Marc
Maxwell, with whom he writes
the "Sports by the Numbers"
books, have lives outside of
their ongoing studies at the
University of Oklahoma, it can
be a little challenging to work
on upcoming books.
"We speak on the phone
every day," Horne said. "On
Sunday, we probably e-mail
20 to 25 times. We've got so
much going on. We divvy up
the responsibilities. We each
have different things we excel
at. We focus on our strengths.
"The best part is we work
exceptionally well together."
Though he lives in


books on Oklahoma and
Georgia football. Horne
admitted working on the
project, therefore, was a little
intimidating since the book
would be read by a lot more
people.
However, it was also a fun
time for Home, who made
several trips to.'New York. He
spent a lotY 6f' time talking
about the Yankees with the
New York -Post'se Mike
Vacarro, who- wrote the
foreword for the book, as well
as touring Yankees Stadium.
He sat in one of the dugouts,
looking out onto the field and
thinking of the history that had
played out on the field. He
went into the Yankees
clubhouse, which offered him
a special opportunity-to see
the locker of Thurman
Munson, who was killed in an
airplane crash in 1979.
Munson's locker, with his
number 15 still on it, remains
vacant to this day.
"They don't. allow
photographs of it," Home said.
"If. you want to see it, you have
to actually go see it."
Such experiences, coupled
with talking to those who give
tours of the stadium, were very
instrumental in writing the
book.
"There are parts of (the
'book) where you can definitely
tell I was in New York when I
was writing it," Home said.
As special as he thinks the,
Yankees book is, Horne thinks
the book on the Boston Red
Sox, which will be released in
April, will be just as special.
"You don't necessarily have
to be a Red Sox fan," Home
said. "It's like the Yankees-
you can't tell the history of
baseball without talking about
the Yankees and the Red Sox.
The greatest moments in
baseball history invariably
come back to Boston or New
York."
***
The number 10-jersey worn
by Phil Rizzuto of the Yankees,
which was retired in 1985.
Home is tied. to the number
10 in that even though the first
"Sports by the Numbers"
series was published a year
and a half ago, he has been
writing for more than 10 years.
In 2005, Home's essay, "The
Memory of Hope," -earned
honorable mention in the
memoir category of the 74"'
annual Writer's Digest Writing,
Competition.
"The sports book was a
detour I did not see,coming,"
Home said "It wais t the same,
time as I was getting my'foOt
in the door with the other
writing."
Home said he hopes to one
day have a less-involved role
in the "Sports by the
Numbers" series so he can
focus on his other writing
projects, which include going
in a bit of a different direction.
"I've always been better at
non-fiction," Home said. "It
was non-fiction that I won my
award for, so it's funny that
what I really want to do is
write fiction."
For now, though, Home's
focus, when it comes to
writing, will center on the
"Sports by the Numbers"


Germany, Horne said he was
able to follow the Keystone
Heights High School baseball
team's run to the state
tournament last season via the
Internet and through phone
calls and e-mails from his
father, Larry. Horne may not
be a coach at Keystone any
more, but he wanted the
Indians to win it all more than
anything.
"When I heard they lost, it
was just as devastating as if I
was still a coach there," he
said.
Though Keystone lost in the
state semifinals, the players
have lifelong memories
because of that experience,
Home said. He said he still
remembers the trip Keystone
made to the state tournament
when he and current Keystone
assistant coach Rick Julius
were on the team.
"I think I can give you a
pitch-by-pitch account of the
final game we played when we
were seniors," Home said.
"You don't forget that sort of
thing. It has an impact on
you."
Though he never tasted what
it was like to win a state
championship, Home said he
will know what it's like if a
future Keystone team does so.
He has a lifelong bond to the
program.
"Even if you aren't a
physical part of it, just
knowing that those guys have
followed after you and are
pursuing the same goals and
same dreams you had, you
want them to achieve it so
much," Horne said. "If at some
point they do, I suspect it
would feel very much like it
would if we had won when we
were in high school."


championship in three years.
Even though Horne is
working on a doctorate degree
at Oklahoma, he is rooting for
the Gators, even though he
wears an OU hat almost
everywhere he goes. That led
to an amusing incident at a
local Wendy's in which Horne,
wearing his OU hat, was
approached by a child who
was showing off his T-shirt
that proclaimed, "Bob Stoops
wears Tim Tebow pajamas."
Horne cannot say enough
good things about Stoops and
how he helped support the
"Sports by the Numbers"
Oklahoma book, but he cannot
bring himself to wish for
Stoops to win his second
national championship.
"I love Bob Stoops," Home
said. "He's done a tremendous
amount for our books. He's
. been really kind to us. He's a
good guy, but I'm pulling for
Florida."

Auto industry
managers
failed their
trust
Jf automobile manufacturing
executives want to see the
people responsible for the dire
straits their firms are now
facing, they should look in the
mirror.
The monumental failures of
General Motors and Ford
Motor Co. are directly
attributable to irresponsible
management practices, dating
back to the years immediately
following World War II.
Rather than face their fiscal
responsibility to negotiate
reasonable labor terms, they
took the easy road of
acquiescing and compensated
by raising the price of
automobiles to an
unsustainable price. Couple the
lack of discipline in labor
negotiations with poor product
design and quality in a highly
competitive industry and


Money-saving
thoughts for
the new-year
Dear Editor:
As we go into the new year,
there are many things we can
reflect on that have happened
in our little county that we can
be thankful for and hope to
never see again.
We no longer have the most
tax-abusing sheriff that we
have ever seen and a county
commissioner who wasted or
misused our tax money more
so I than any' other
commissioner in recent
memory. Well, the past is over
and done with and hopefully
the debts our commission has
hung around our necks will
soon be paid off and we can
hope that, for once in a coon's
age, we taxpayers will be
given some attention and our
taxes will be reduced (well, I
q can dream, can't I?).
' In this past year, several
things were pointed out to the
commission that they could do
that would benefit the
taxpayers and the county. They
could establish a motor pool

failure is a certainty.
This is not an attack on
labor. When coming to the
table to-discuss new contracts,
labor leaders are obligated to
seek the best possible terms for
the people they represent. It is
not their duty to consider what
is best for the corporation.
Management and labor are
adversaries-not buddies and
not even friends-in
hammering out working
agreements and contracts
because they represent
separate entities, both essential
to the manufacture of products,
but with differing constituents.
English Lord Acton
observed "power tends to
corrupt and absolute power
corrupts absolutely." He could
have been thinking about Big
Business and especially of
manufacturing and its
treatment of workers. Ten- and
12-hour days were common
six days a week. Labor was
paid $2-$3 per week. Child
laborers were chained to their
machines. Without question,
Big Business was in co-ntrol
and workers had no voice in


and have every county-owned
vehicle parked at night and
checked out when needed on
county business during the
day. Complete records could
be kept, having the vehicles
cleaned and serviced. There is
no justifiable reason; for any
county vehicle to be used
when an employee goes to
lunch or to be driven home at
night or around the area as
though it was personally
owned. If an employee lives
outside the county, he or she
should be driving something
other than a county-owned and
maintained vehicle. Vehicles
that are county-owned should
be audited regularly to assure
that we are getting the
maximum service for the
minimum cost.
The taxpayers interest
should alwaysbe put above the
government's and its
bureaucrats. Every elected
official should dedicate
themselves to reducing the size
of government.
I hope our new sheriff will
establish a new policy for
deputies in plain, unmarked
cars. They should not be
allowed to attempt to stop a
vehicle unless they are in fresh

the workplace until Samuel
Gompers came on the scene in
the- late 19th century and
undertook the task of
organizing labor..
The manufacturing North-
was fertile ground for
organizing workers, unlike the
agricultural South, and the
differences continue today,
although the gap is narrowing
and union labor has made
inroads throughout the nation.
Union membership declined in
the 1950s and decreased
further as textiles, electronic
and other industries moved
offshore, pushing unions to
recruit in new fields-
including governmerit-to
maintain viability.
It is in the best interest of the
nation that unions continue in
a strong position to represent
workers in earnings, safe
working conditions and other
benefits consistent with market
conditions. In today's free-
market economy, competition

pursuit of a felony crime and

have read where people in
plain cars with interior flashing
lights have stopped a person
and assaulted, raped and/or
robbed them. In fact, I have
been cautioned by experienced
officers not to stop, but to
drive to a police station or to a
well-lit area where other
people are around, before
stopping. If your life or that of
your family is at stake, you
have an obligation to protect.
In China, 2009 is the year of

the economy the way it is and
the high unemployment rate,
every effort should be made to
put as much public work in the
private sector as possible.
With as much work that
would be put into the private
sector and under private
contract, if surprises me that
we haven't had at least one
person smart enough to
advance one or two ideas

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
On the morning of Saturday,
Jan. 3, a child was run over at
the Piney Bay Hunt Club on
C.R. 238 in Union County.
A 14-year-old female got
behind the wheel of a pickup
truck and put it into reverse to
allow another vehicle to pass
on a narrow tram road. The
report from the Union County
Sheriff's Office states that the
-vehicle'- had backed up
approximately 10 feet when
the teen driver inadvertently
ran over the torso of seven-
year-old William Shands
Howard.
A witness at the scene took
Howard to Lake Butler
Hospital where he was
stabilized and later transported
by Union County EMS to
Shands UF in Gainesville for
further treatment. One of the
victim's grandparents, Lori
Howard, said that as of
Tuesday morning, the child
remains in pediatric intensive
care, but is progressing. A full
recovery is expected.

its lights off. The truck then
entered S.R. 121 and 'turned

Telegraph Staff Writer
Dannerius Sheffield scored
44 points in two overtime
games as the Bradford boys'
basketball team went 2-1 and
won the consolation round of
the First Coast Classic, which
was hosted by Baker County

The Tornadoes (9-2),

She later hit a long jumper to
make it a three-point game,
while a basket by Jamika
Ruise put Union up 50-45.
Slocum made her fifth 3-
pointer of the game to pull
Bradford within two, then tied
the game with less than a
minute remaining when she
rebounded her own miss and
put it back for two.
Watkins was fouled with 32
seconds remaining, but she
missed both of her free-throw
attempts. Couch rebounded the
second miss, but Bradford's
Farah Duhart -rebounded a
missed Union field goal.
Bradford had an inbounds
play underneath the Union
basket with 13 seconds
remaining. Couch forced a
jump ball, with the possession
arrow pointing in the
Tornadoes' favor. With six
seconds remaining, Slocum
was fouled as she received an
inbounds pass, setting her up
for the winning free throws.
The Tornadoes were
dreadful from the foul line,


before recording overtime
wins over Crescent City and
Madison County.
Sheffield scored 16 points in
the win over Madison that
ended tournament play for
Bradford. He was joined in
double figures by Yakeem
Griner, who had 10 points, and
Darrin Blye, who had 21. Blye
made three 3-pointers and
scored 13 points after halftime.
Tramaine Harris and CJ.
Covington scored nine and
eight points, respectively,
while Malcolm Moore had
seven and Terrance Davis two.
Bradford was scheduled to


making just 7-of-22 attempts.
Slocum, however, made her
last four attempts.
Union's performance at the
line wasn't much better as the
Tigers went 9-of-21. They did
have a stretch in the second
half where they made 7-of-8
attempts, but they went 0-of-3
during the game's final
minute. ,
Though Slocum scored the
majority of her team's points,
she did get some key plays
from some of her teammates.
Aside from some timely,
baskets by Cragg, the
Tornadoes also got five
defensive rebounds by Duhart
in the second half, while Nessa
Portis grabbed four defensive
boards in._tbe third quarter.

Union's Stew art had
achieved a double-double by
halftime with 10 points and 10
rebounds, but she was not as
effective in the second half,
scoring just three points to
finish with 13. Couch led the
Tigers with 14 points, while
Ruise scored eight in the
second half to finish with 10.
Eight of Couch's points
came in the first half, with four
of those occurring during a 12-
3 run in the second quarter.

quarter.
