Arrest made in
theft of school
vehicle
An 18-year-old Union County High
School student who was suspected
of being involved in the theft of the
agriculture department's pickup truck on
Dec. 25, was arrested on Jan. 7.
Dontrell Juwan Larry, 18, admitted
to driving the truck after obtaining it
from another juvenile suspect. Larry
was charged with two felony counts of
burglary and grand theft auto. Bond was
set at $5,000.

1 9-year-old
arrested for
battery on officer
A 19-year-old Lake Butler resident
was arrested for battery on a law
enforcement officer on Jan. 22.
Deputy James Crews of the Union
County Sheriff's Office responded to
a family disturbance at .a residence
on C.R. 18 between Benjamin Ethan
Amwake and his mother. The suspect's
mother stated that they became involved
in a verbal altercation when her son
became very angry, hitting cabinets and
throwing her cell phone into a.wall,
causing damage to the wall.
Upon arrival, the mother told Deputy
Crews that her son was in his room.
When she knocked on the door, he told
her to gd away. As she attempted to
open the door, Amwake slammed it shut.
Crews then attempted to open the door,
announcing that he was a deputy sheriff,
when Amwake slammed the door on his
hand. Crews stated that he then pushed
the door open, knocking over a dresser
the suspect had used to block the door.


e l .... Cre ws
stated that
when he
Entered

at him.
rAfter being
told he was

the suspect

shoving
Crews and
continuing to
Dontrell Larry use profanity
directed at the
deputy. Upon
being handcuffed and searched, Crews
alleged Amwake shoved him yet again
before he was placed into the patrol car,
transported to the Union County Jail and
booked on felony battery charges.

Bus accident
results in minor
injuries
Just after school let out on Jan. 21,
the Union County Sheriff's Office
responded to traffic crash on S.R.- 121
involving a Union County school bus.
At approximately 3:15 p.m., a 16-
year-old male was headed northbound
on S.R. 121 near Raiford when his
1994 Dodge pickup truck failed to stoli
behind school bus no. 19 as it stopped
in preparation of a left-hand turn at N.E.
221st St.
As a result, the pickup truck struck the
right rear of the school bus and traveled
under the bus.
Of the 53 students on the bus, four


were transported to Lake Butler Hospital
with minor injuries. All other occupants
of the bus were either picked up by their
parents at the scene or immediately
loaded onto another bus and taken
home.
The driverof the truck,a Union County
High School student, was transported to
Shands UF as a precaution. Several
school staff members were on scene to
assist parents and students. The accident
is still under investigation with the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Ironically, this accident involving a
school bus took place almost three years
to the day after the tragic 2006 crash that
killed seven Union County children who
were in a car behind the stopped school
bus on S.R. 121 when it was slammed
into by a semi-truck.
Another bus accident in 2007
involving the death of a five-year-old
Union County student took place just
over a mile from where this most recent
accident occurred.

Former CO
convicted in
federal court
On Jan. 16, a federal jury found former
Department of Corrections Officer Paul
Tillis, 43, of Lake Butler, guilty of a
felony federal civil lights violation for
an August 2005 assault on an inmate.
The evidence showed that on Aug.
14, 2005, Tillis was employed as a
corrections officer sergeant at Florida
State Prison in Raiford, when one of the
inmates in his custody allegedly feigned
injury by lying on the floor of his cell
with a sheet tied around his neck.
In response, Tillis filled a bottle from
a nearby dispenser that provided water at
near-boiling temperatures and poured the


scalding water onto the victim's chest.
Tillis did not seek medical treatment for
the victim, who suffered second-degree
burns to his upper torso and shoulder as
a result of the assault.
Tillis faces a maximum punishment
of 10 years in prison and a $250,000
fine. A sentencing date has not yet been
scheduled.
Records show that Tillis became
a corrections officer at Florida State
Prison in July 2001. He was promoted
to sergeant in July 2005. The indictment
was handed down in July 2008, three
months after he was dismissed from
DOC. Tillis appealed his dismissal and
worked out an agreement with the state,
which rescinded the dismissal letter and
allowed him to resign. That also released
the state from any liability in its action
against him.
The case was initially investigated
by the Florida DOC Inspector
General's Office and turned over to the
Jacksonville office of the FBI as a civil
rights violation.
"It is important that corrections officers
realize they may not use their positions
of authority to inflict physical harm on
inmates as punishment," said Acting
Assistant Attorney General Loretta King
for the Civil Rights Division. "While
the vast majority of law enforcement
officers carry out their difficult duties
in a lawful and professional manner,
the Department of Justice will continue
to vigorously prosecute those who
cross the line and commit this type of
unlawful act."
Agents from the FBI's Jacksonville
Division and the Florida Office of
the Inspector General investigated
the case. The case was prosecuted by
Assistant U.S. Attorney Mac Heavener
and Department of Justice Civil Rights
Division Trial Attorney Douglas Kern.

LB sprayfield lease in question


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer


In a special public meeting
held Jan. 21, Lake Butler city
commissioners unanimously
agreed to reject a recent
proposal from Hendricks
Turf Company and to begin
surveying other businesses who
may be interested in leasing the
spray field.
Back in December, City
Manager John Berchtold and
Public Works Director Hardy
Clyatt met with management
at Hendricks Turf to discuss
options on resolving the
delinquency on the sod
company's current lease with
the city.
As president of Hendricks


Turf, Stephanie Christmas said
she was in a position to offer
the city $5,000, then another
$2.507 by the end of February.
The $7,507 is what Hendricks
owes to the city from the close
of its fiscal year, September
2008. However, that amount
does not reflect lease payments
due since the fiscal year closed:
September 2008 through the
approaching February 2009
payment date. As of Feb. 1,
the total amount due to the city
in delinquent lease payments is
equivalent to one year's lease,
or $12,878.
Christmas offered that she
would pay the remaining lease
amount of just over $5,300
no later than Sept. 29, 2009.
However, she stipulated that as
of the March 1,2009. Hendricks


would not be required to make
regular monthly lease payments
for a period of two years, or
until March 2011.
The concept 'behind her
proposal was the same as what
was agreed upon with the
very first contract entered into
between the city and Hendricks
Turf back in March 1999.
City Attorney John Maines
pointed out that there exists a
big difference between the very
first lease signed 10 years ago
and today's condition of the
spray field.
"Today," Maines said,
"there's sod in the ground. That
was not the case during the
first term of the lease because
the sod farm was not fully
operational then."
The first two years were


to allow Hendricks the time
necessary to harvest sod for
the public market. However,
Hendricks has been fully
established for quite some time
and what they were asking for
now is an extension to run the
operation without obligation of
a rental payment.
"The city would basically
be financing the sod operation
for two years," Maines told
commissioners.
Christmas said they are
asking this now because she
doesn't know what the economy
holds for her sod company for
the next two years and this
will provide some security and
cushion for the business.
After speaking with the city
auditor about the situation more
than a month ago, Berchtold


made all parties aware that the
state constitution prohibits the
city from lending aid to private
individuals or businesses.
However, the city auditor has
stated that certain types of
collateral can be used to extend
credit to Hendricks.
Commissioner Scott Cason
said, "I keep hearing that, but
I have yet to be convinced on
the auditor."
In addressing Cason,
Commissioner Ray Crawford
again offered that state laws
require the city auditor to
follow guidelines of requiring
collateral to extend credit.
Cason asked, "So what are
we going to do with collateral
if they had it? Take the title to a
tractor and hold it?"

Gov. vetoes some budget cuts


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

On Tuesday, Gov. Charlie Crist
approved a new budget passed by
legislators meeting in special
session earlier this month,
although he vetoeU some of the
planned cuts.
That came as welcome news
to The Arc of Bradford County's
director, Sherry Ruszkowski,
and others like her around the
state since money was saved for
the state Agency for Persons
with Disabilities. The additional
proposed cut represented another
5 percent on top of the 7 percent
cut already experienced.
Service providers like The Arc
of Florida opposed additional
cuts because of the danger of
people with disabilities losing the
residential group homes they live
in or the family assistance that
allows these individuals to live at.
home, in addition to services that
provide support and instruction
in acquiring life and job skills.
Ruszkowski said she thinks
the governor deserves a round
of applause for sparing the
state's disabled. More than $13.5
million will remain in the budget
to provide these services.
In all, almost $365 million,
including $91 million is general


revenue funding and $273.6
million in trust fund money,
was restored to the budget,
preserving funding for public
safety, education and teachers,
children and elder programs,
tourism promotion, and the
Florida Forever land conservation
program.
"I appreciate the difficult work
of the Legislature to reduce the
current year's budget during
these historically challenging
economic times," Crist said.
"However, I believe we can tighten
our belts while still maintaining
our investment in priority areas.
In this way, we can ensure the
safety and security of our people
and visitors to our state."
Bradford school officials
weren't available to discuss what
the governor's vetoes would
mean for the school district. A
press release from the governor's
office did spell out that Bradford
will hold on to more than $37,000
in workforce education dollars
(around $38,500 in Clay and
$6,500 in Union). Other areas,
such as preserved funding for
teacher merit raises and was not
broken down by district.
Money was also saved for
teachers who pursue national
certification, and almost $6
million statewide was maintained


for school readiness services for
children of working parents.
More than $3 million in
cuts for correctional probation
officers was also saved, as was
more than $5 million for drug
abuse treatment and educational
programs in state corrections
facilities. More than $1.3 million
was saved for the Guardian ad
Litem program, which provides
advocates for children caught
up in the legal system. Funding
preserved for adult and children's
mental health and substance
abuse services totaled almost $10
million.
Additional money for the
Florida National Guard,
Departmentof Children Families,
Department of Elder Affairs and
Department of Health was spared
as well.
The governor's vetoes restored
almost $365 million of the $1.2
billion in cuts approved by the
Legislature. The cuts were in
response toa $2.3 billion revenue
shortfall.
More good news may be
coming this week as Washington
legislators are expected to begin
voting on the president's $825
billion stimulus package as early
as Wednesday.

sessions. It is proven that students
perform better when tested on
the day of the test, not on make-
up days.
5. Get a good night's sleep.
6. Provide breakfast. Fresh
fruits and vegetables are often
recommended to reduce stress.
Stressful foods include
processed foods, artificial
sweeteners, carbonated soft
drinks, chocolate, fried foods,
junk foods and foods high in
sugar.


Information for
home-schooled
students
End of the year evaluations
are required by law for home-
schooled students. They may
participate in state testing at
no charge. Please contact your
school one week prior to the
administration dates of the test
to sign up. This allows the school
time to include your child in
the schedule and accommodate
any special needs. Failure to do
this may result in a school being
unable to test your child.
Grades one-10 may participate
in the testing as an end of the
year evaluation. Eleventh-grade
students may participate in the
FCAT Science test.
Eleventh- and 121h-grade
students may not participate
in the FCAT Reading or Math
retakes. The retake test does
not serve as an end of the year
evaluation.

For more information, contact
the guidance counselor at your
child's school or, in Bradford
County, call Carol Clyatt at (904)
966-6816.

retirement application in as little
-as 15 minutes. It's very easy.
In most cases, after you click
the "Sign Now" button and submit
the application -electronically,


that's it. There are no forms to
sign, and usually no additional
documents,.arej required. Social.
Security will contact you directly
if more information is needed.
Award-winning actress Patty
Duke has volunteered her services
to let people know they can
retire online. Duke has brought
back the much beloved identical
cousins Patty and Cathy Lane
from the hit 1960's sitcom "The
Patty Duke Show" for a series of
public, service announcements
that tell Americans it's now
easier than ever to apply online.
You can 'see these public
service announcements at www.
socialsecurity.gov/pattyduke.

Cervical cancer
is preventable
Screening can help prevent
cervical cancer. Make sure you
and the women in your life are
screened through regular Pap
tests. An HPV test may also be
recommended for women age 30
and older.
Virtually all cases of cervical
cancer are caused by the HPV
virus, and by age 50 80 percent
of all women (and men) will have
been positive for HPV at some
point in their lives.
Avoiding sexual genital
contact, limiting sexual partners
and suing condoms and decrease
chances of HPV exposure.
Vaccination can also reduce the
risk of contracting the virus.

Committee cannot even come
close to projecting accurate

feels that it is a difficult task,
considering all the economic
factors that come into play.
Bradford Finance Director
Julee Tinsler said that she feels

us the ability to move some
people around and all of that
funding has not been claimed

Tinsler said.

LB student writes...


Author visits as
part of 4-H in the
Classroom
BY MOLLY ZAPP
LBES Fourth Grader


On Dec. 17, I met a lady
named Marilyn Bishop Shaw
who wrote a book named
"Solomon." Mrs. Shaw is
sister-in-law to my principal,
Mrs. Lynn Bishop.
This book is about the early
days of Florida history in the
1860s. "Solomon" has an
Accelerated Reader quiz that
is worth 10 points. I think
that's pretty cool. It took Mrs.
Shaw five years to get her book
published. It took three years
to write and another two years
to finally have a copy in her
hand.
What Mrs. Shaw learned
about the writing experience is
that you have to be patient and
you can't call the publisher to
see if the book is ready.
The book's main character
is Solomon, an ll-year-old
newly freed slave. He and his
family moved from Georgia to


north Florida around Lafayette
County in 1863 to build a farm,
and have a garden for crops.
One of the parts Mrs. Shaw
,read from her book tells how
Solomon was having trouble
getting untangled from a thorn
bush. Solomon heard a snort.
When he looked up, he saw a
bull. Solomon was learning
how to use a bullwhip, but
wasn't very good with it. He
got his whip untangled, put his


hand on the whip and waited.
Someone yelled, "Crack the
whip!" That's just what he
did. Solomon heard it crack
and knew that the bull would
always have a scar in the middle
of his forehead between his two
uneven horns.
Mrs. Shaw said she is working
on a sequel to Solomon. I think
that you and I should get the
book and read it. I think it will
be great!

Man pleads to murder


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Toby Lee Lowry,23, has pled
guilty to the murder of Melrose
resident James Stewart.
Lowry and 14-year-old
Amanda Leppart were accused
of murdering Melrose resident
James Stewart last May. They
were later apprehended in Texas
and returned for trial. Leppart
is.being tried as an adult.
A state district attorney
originally sought the death
penalty for the older of the two.
As a juvenile, Leppart cannot
receive the death penalty.
However, Lowry's attorney
asked for a life sentence in
return for a guilty plea,
according to media reports
based on statements made


by State Attorney Chris
France. According to the
state prosecutor, the victim's
family also approved the plea
bargain.
Lowry is scheduled for
sentencing next Friday.
Since pleading guilty to the
charges, he can now testify
against Leppart, who by this
point is 16 years of age.
The two staked out
Stewart's Melrose home and
convinced him to let Leppart
into his home. The pair then
beat, stabbed and suffocated
the 66-year-old man, who
was mildly disabled and hard
of hearing.
The two were, later
apprehended in Texas.
Shortly after going to jail,
Lowry attempted suicide.

Grandin men's group


builds for neighbors


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
The Men's Fellowship
Organization in Grandin is a
Christian men's group from a
-number of churches in Putnam.
and Clay counties.
In January, about a dozen
members of the organization
constructed their 49th ramp at
the home of John and Diana
Huffman in Interlachen. The
group's secretary and treasurer,
Sim Suter, said the men have
built ramps for handicapped
and disabled residents living
in houses or in mobile homes.
They have also built ramps for


churches.
"We get together to help the
community, to have fun and to
serve the Lord," Suter added.
The men shown above are
members who worked on the
Huffman project-Huffman
himself has since joined the
group, too-but other members
include Josh Dill, Nick
Straniero, Tom Russel, Bill
Tritt, Dan Kramer, the Rev.
John Miles, Larry Harris, Brian
Bott and Ralph Lambert. Most
of the organization's members
are retired, Suter said.
On Saturday, Feb. 7, the
group will reach a milestone


with its 50th ramp, to be built at
the Jackie and Ralph McDolald
home on Beloit Avenue in High
Ridge Estates.
Usually, the group provides
the labor but the home owner
buys the building materials,
which can run between $180 to
more than $500, Suter said.
To celebrate their milestone,
the group will also supply
the building materials at the
McDolald home.
To request a ramp, contribute
to the effort or to learn more
about the Men's Fellowship
Organization, call group

Florida Agriculture,

Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has advised residents
that below average rainfall for
the last four to five months
has signrificantly increased the
state's wildfire risk.
The torrential rain associated
with Tropical Storm Fay last
summer has been.all but offset
by the recent drought. The
Keetch-Byram Drought Index,
which measures available
soil moisture and runs from 0
(saturated) to 800 (desert-like),
currently stands at 511-more
than double the normal drought
index this time of year.
"We are asking both residents
and visitors alike to be careful
with any outdoor burning and to
check with their local officials
to determine if there is a burn
ban in effect in their area,"
Bronson said.
During the past year, 2,894
wildfires have burned nearly
106.000 acres in Florida.
To minimize the wildfire
risk, Bronson is asking residents
and visitors to do their part,
including:
s,. Never leave any fire
unattended.
Clear an area to bare soil
for campfires, and be sure they


are put out before you leave.
Report any suspicious fire
by calling 9.t1.

is one of Keystone Heigfits'

owned by Ed Larsen, it is now
home to the Harts.


With native plants being
even more important to the
home gardener, walking
through the Hart's yard is like
walking through a nature park.
Pathways are lined with white
and pink azaleas, camellias,
ginger, Mexican petunias, day
lilies, ferns, beauty berry and
false heather.
Intermixed among the plants
are more than 40 oak trees,
cedar, crepe myrtle, red maple,

At the celebration, the
library's atrium was filled
with library patrons and
fans, including members of
the association.
The guest book was signed
in silver and a memento was


given to all, including a silver
quarter to spend or save to
remember the occasion.

Frdm among the donated
books, Peters chose themes
of exercise and good
nutrition, which became
the topic of one program in
December.
That led Peters to also
include culinary arts students
from Keystone Heights High
School who cooked up some
health conscious dishes
with food from a Publix
supermarket. The grocery
chain gave the library a
small grant in the way of
a gift card, which went a
long way toward buying


ingredients the high school
students used.
Head Librarian Margaret
Whipple said the library
made a request for support
as a community partner
prior to the library's summer

gift card arrived last fall.

Dukes has served on the Union
County Recreation Board, has
been active in both the local
Pop Warner and Babe Ruth
associations, is a member of
the Union County Quarterback
Club, and is a huge supporter
of the Lake Butler FFA. He is
also a family man who lights
up when given opportunity to
talk about his children.
-He is married to Kelly
Nesmith Dukes, a 16-)ear
veteran educator at Lake Butler
Elementary School, and they
have four children: Aaron,
Mason, Morgan and Austin.
Aaron, 19, is currently
attending Jacksonville
University on a football
scholarship. In his freshman
year of college, the JU Dolphins
gained its first Pioneer Football
League title in the school's
history. Another former UCHS
student, Jeremy Brown, is in
the midst of his senior year at
JU', where he has also played
football for the Dolphins.
Mason is a 17-year-old junior
at UCHS who, like his father
and older brother before him.
is a football player and member


of the FFA. Mason also plays
baseball for the Tigers, and
enjoys hunting and fishing.
Dukes' only daughter,
Morgan, 15, is a ninth grader at
LJCHS. Morgan has no trouble
keeping up with the boys in the
family, staying heavily active
in cheerleading, softball and
the FFA. She currently serves
as an officer with the Lake
Butler FFA and is fresh off
a recent sub-district win as a
member of the parliamentary
procedure team.
A seventh-grader at Lake
Butler Middle School, Austin,
15, is also serving as an officer
with the Lake Butler FFA. No
surprise, Austin also plays
football along with basketball
and baseball.
As for now, Dukes said he
is looking forward to working
with his constituents and
greatly appreciates the number
of people who have stopped by
to greet him as the new county
property appraiser.
"I've known Steve [Saunders]
my whole life and I've always
looked up to him and his family.
I will try to be the same type of
Christian leader he has been.
for the county, and I wish him
nothing but the

LEASE:
Continued from p. 1A

For the record, Article
7, Section 10 of the Florida
Constitution reads, in part,
"Neither the state nor any
county, school district,
municipality, special district, or
agency of any of them, shall
become a joint owner with,
or stockholder of, or give or
lend or use its taxing power or
credit to aid any corporation,
association, partnership or
person; . ."
The city attorney again
explained that a public entity
cannot, finance a private entity.
"Well, we won't hold you
responsible with the action
of the city commission, John.
We'll take the blame," Cason
said.
Berchtold said that if he's the
one who's going to be dealing
with the state of Florida, then
it's going to be done legally.
He advised that Hendricks'
proposal be rejected.
Addressing Christmas


and Sdtephen
Hend(icks
who was
also present,
Crawford said,
"I hate to even
say this because
I want you to
stay there, but
I feel we need
to go ahead
and solve this
and put the
lease out for
bids. All we're
going to do
like this is drag
it on and on,
going through
this every month."
Christmas said that at this
point, they cannot justify
keeping the farm because they
do not have a demand for sod
and don't even know if there
will be a demand in the near
future.
Cason recapped the situation.
If Hendricks paid the city
$5,000 today, then paid another
$2,507 by the end of February,
they would still be in arrears by
more than $5,000, an amount

Christmas said they would not
be able to pay until September
2009. By that time, Hendricks
would already be delinquent
for another six months, then
would expect the city to wait
until 2011 to recoup.
"To me, two years is a little
too much," Cason said.
Christmas said there was no
way she could make a monthly
delinquency payment on top
of the $1,134 monthly lease
payments. "1I don't have 'Ihe
demand |for sod] and I don't


have the money coming in,"
she said.
Maines offered that the city
could perhaps accept Hendricks'
proposal, only they needed
to continue with the current
monthly lease payments and put
off the $5,000 in arrears until
September 2009. Christmas
said she could only agree to
that if the city allowed her a
grace period each month if she
could not make the payments..
Seemingly frustrated,
Berchtold said, "I,'m sorry.
But it seems we will be back
dealing with this every two
months this way.'
Maines and Crawford
both agreed that the proposal

from the city was extremely
reasonable.
Stephen Hendricks humbly
said that he would like to
apologize to Berchtold if he
offended him in any way with
his proposal..
"I'apologize, that was not my
intention," he said.
It was agreed by a vote of 4-
0 to reject Hendricks' proposal.
Mayor Jimmy Beasley was not
in attendance.
The board also agreed that
Berchtold should research
others interested in leasing
the property and bring the
information back to the board
at its next public meeting.

Chamber banquet raises funds for BC foundation


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor

The Northeast Florida
Regional Chamber of
Commerce held its annual
membership banquet last---
Saturday evening, and it was
a busy night.
Awards were handed out,
old board members were bid
farewell, new board members
were welcomed aboard,
dinner was served, and at the
end of it, everybody who was
brave and energetic enough
danced.
In between all that were
fund-raising auctions, silent
and not silent, with proceeds
going to the Bradford County
Education Foundation.
Terry Vaughn acted as the
evening's emcee. Bill EIIrod
auctioned off a number of
items donated by local


businesses.
Circuit Judge Phyllis
Rosier swore in new boards
for the chamber, and for
Main Street Starke.
Rosier told board members
-that-the decisions they made
while on the- pa- el-- must
benefit the community as a
whole, even if they know
their vote might adversely
effect their own business.
The Main Street Starke
chairman's gavel was passed
from Steve Futch to Rusty
Greek, though Futch is
retained on the Main Street
board.
Greek has run the Office
Shop for the last 11 years. He
has helped organize and
promote Bike Fest since its
inception. He donates hours
to chamber projects including
membership drives and the
Strawberry Festival.


Wal-Mart received the first
of several chamber awards
when the Supercenter was
given the NFRCC Large
Business of the Year award.
Wal-Mart has donated
thousands of dollars to area
schools, lent its corporate
sponsorship to numerous
events and opened its doors
to the Starke Police
Department's Shop with a
Cop program.
The Small Business of the
Year award went to the
Hampton Lake Bed and
Breakfast. Accepting the
award were owners Freeman
and Paula Register.
The Volunteer of the Year
was Debra Johns. Her mother
Geri Johns accepted the
award on her behalf.
The J.E. Tomlinson
Business Person of the Year
Award went to Carolyn
Carver, owner of Sporting
Chance, which produces silk
screened T-shirts, sporting
goods and gift items. Carver
has been generous with
donations to chamber
programs and other causes in
the community for many
years.
The Eugene L. Matthews
Citizen of the Year Award is
named for the late editor and
publisher of the Telegraph.
The award went to Jennie
Reed. Reed, a vice president
at Community State Bank.
The Pat Farnsworth
Bradford County Workforce


Development Award went to
Western Steer owner Harry
Hatcher Ill.

Melrose florist,


hiker


Williams is remembered


Edna Williams passed
away last week. Her funeral
was held four days later on
Jan. 20 at the Melrose
Methodist Church, where she
had been a member since
arriving in Melrose almost 60
years ago. She was buried at
the Eliam Cemetery in
Melrose.
Williams was known widely
for having walked all 2,160
miles of the Appalachian Trail,
which she first attempted at
age 62.
She accomplished her goal
eight years later on the third
attempt, breaking her leg three
times in the process. She
finished the trail in 1987 when
she was 70.
Longtime Melrose residents
knew her for 40 years as a
florist and nursery business
owner.
She was born in Brazil, Ind.,
on Labor Day, 1916. She tord a
Monitor reporter she enjoyed
seeing the looks on folks' faces
when she told them she was
from Brazil.
She was the oldest of eight
.brothers and sisters.
"We weren't living' high on'
the hog, but we weren't going
hungry either," Edna recalled
three years ago.
Some of her happier
memories from youth were
going to the movie theater
where she saw Red Skelton
and Perry Como perform live
before the film.
After high school
graduation, she went to work
in a grocery store. A short time
later, she met and married
Donovan Williams who, like
her dad, was a house painter.
In 1944, the couple had a
girl, Linda Jane. Two years.
later, her husband passed
away, leaving Edna with their
two-year-old daughter who
was later diagnosed with -a
disabling, genetically
transmitted disease.
At the suggestion of a
Melrose cousin, Edna moved
to the Lake Region from
Indiana in 1949. Her cousin
had a plant nursery, taught her
the business and helped her set
up her own shop.
In 1974, at age 58, five
months after her daughter's
death, Edna decided she would
ride a bic cle to visit a relative
who T-i'T in' Key Westi~, tT
of ne.ly 400 miles.
Four years later, she set her
sights on the Appalachian
Trail, which she intended to
complete in a half-dozef
increments. Beginning at the
trail's entry point in Maine, she
suffered her first broken leg
after stumbling over a boulder.
Undaunted, she returned to
Maine after recovery and
picked, up again where she had
left off. This time she made it
all the way to Tennessee,
before once again breaking a
leg.
Still determined, after her
leg mended she tried a
different tack and began at the
...trail's southernmost end point
in Springer Mountain, Ga.
heading north to the place in
Tennessee where she had been
forced to stop.
She reached her goal in
1987.' Edward Garvey
recognized the feat in his book
"The New Appalachian," a
guide to backpacking on the
Appalachian Trail.
Williams was a long-time
member of the Melrose
Business Association, the Red
Hatters and the Eastern Star.
She was also a member of

Park. Pictured (1-r) are Doyle Boatwright, Tim Alldredge, Jason Garver and A.C.

Bradford drivers stand


out among Ellisville field


'BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Henry Hodges is one proud
"daddy."
The owner of Dixie Speed
Racing has a close bond with
not only those who drive for
his team but any driver from
Bradford County who tests his
mettle at Columbia
Motorsports Park. This past
season at the Ellisville track
featured two Bradford drivers
who won the points
championships in their
divisions, one who placed
second and another who placed
third.
"We've got many talented
racers in Bradford County,"
said Hodges, who refers to
himself as "sort of the daddy
of all of them."
Upon hearing the "daddy"
comment, driver Tim
Alldredge said, "He's the one
we call for the bail money."
Alldredge was joking, but
there is that kind of closeness
between Hodges, the Dixie
Speed pit crew and drivers
from this area in which they
will do whatever they can to
help each other out.'
"We're just a big family,"


Hodges said.
It is a family that showed
quite well at Columbia
Motorsports Park this past
season. Dixie Speed drivers
Doyle Boatwright and Jason
Garver always perform well at
the track, having compiled
many wins and quite a few
championships in their. careers.
This year was np.exception.

Editorial/Opinion

Thursday, January 29, 2009 Page 4B


The speech
heard 'round
the world
It may not rival the
Gettysburg Address by
President Abraham Lincoln
Nov. 19, 1863, but it may
reverberate down through
history as a turning point in
American government, for
several reasons.
(1) It was given by the first
black American president (and
I am tired of hearing that
phrase; the press and many
Americans seemed to have
forgotten that President Obama
has as many white relatives as
black).
(2) The speech represents a
watershed, a change in
direction, in the way
government operates, if actions
follow words.
(3) Americans look forward
to a change in attitude about
-our nation's propensity to
.become involved in foreign
wars. Beginning with the War
with Spain in 1898, in which
Cuba was freed, throughout
the 20th Century and into the
21st Century, Americans have
been continuously involved in
wars, battles and skirmishes,
and we are bone-tired of
sending American troops to
fight and die in foreign lands.
Speaking of American
involvement in wars, President
Obama said, "Our power alone
cannot protect us, nor does it
entitle us to do as we please."
These words of' wisdom
should be engraved in stone
and displayed prominently in
the halls of Congress, and in
the White House. Without a
doubt, the United States is the
most powerful military force in
the world today, but our nation
is also bankrupt as result of the
war in Iraq, fought by the
military while the civilian


Police chief
clarifies Jan.


Dear Editor:
This is in response to the
letter published in last week's
paper written by Mrs. Peggi
Labato. I would like to first
state that I am deeply sorry
that her daughter had such a
negative experience in Starke.
I was concerned by Mrs.
Labato's account of what had
transpired on the night of Jan.
18 and immediately began an
investigation into the incident.
As chief of police, I tale the
safety of all citizens seriously.
The first thing that I would like
to address is that Mrs. Labato's
daughter was indeed stopped
by a Starke police officer due
to a headlight being out.
During the incident it was
discovered that Miss Labato
was driving without a valid
driver's license. The fee of
$141 was actually for
the offense of driving while
license is suspended or
revoked, not for improper
equipment (headlight being
out). This fee is mandated by
the state of Florida (FSS
322.34 (1)) for this offense,
not the city of Starke. Miss
Labato's daughter was issued a
warning citation for the
headlight which incurs no fees,
penalties or points. (The fee
for improper/unsafe equipment
citation is $63 if proof of
compliance is made prior to 30
days or $91 after the 30-day
period.)
When the officer conducted
a computer check on Miss
Labato's vehicle's tag, which is
standard procedure, there was
an order to seize the tag if the
owner of the vehicle was the
driver due to failure to have
insurance on the vehicle. The
officer in question did not cite
Miss Labato for failure to have
insurance as he could have
done, which would have
resulted in another fee of $91.
The location for the traffic
stop on U.S. 301 near Budget
Inn is well lit and not isolated.
I can understand the anger
that Mrs. Labato had in regards
to the alleged treatment of her
daughter. I wish that she had
taken the time to call me and
discuss this matter so that we
both could have been made
aware of the details and
circumstances.
As chief of police, I take the
actions and attitudes of my
officers seriously. If. any
officer is being rude or
disrespectful, I want the public


population continues with the
"guns and butter" concept
fostered by President Lyndon
Johnson-that the nation is
rich enough to fight a war
without the nation going on a
war-time footing.
Perish the thought. If and
when the nation goes to war,
every citizen should participate
through higher taxes, if
nothing more.
Black Americans are thrilled
and excited about the election
of President Obama, as they
should be, but they cannot
elect a president without the
cooperation and support of
other Americans. His election
signifies a wide
disappointment with
government, especially the
Washington, D.C., variety for
many, many years, and voters'
rebellion at continuing down
the same old road was evident
in this presidential election.
It is my personal hope that
the new president will take
action to restore honesty and
integrity throughout the federal
government, including both
elective and appointive
employees. While the outgoing
president suffered low esteem
in the minds of the public, the
esteem in which Americans
hold Congress is even lower,
and requires leadership to'
effect a change in attitude
toward improving moral
behavior.
President Obama didn't win
with a landslide, but he did
have a majority and he is now
our president, and even those
of us that voted for his
opponent wish him every
success in fulfilling the
promise of ending the war in
Iraq and repairing the damage
of foreign relations engendered
by that war, and yes, the
arrogance in which Atnericans
are held by other nationals.
There's enough fence mending
needed to keep us busy for
quite a while.


to feel that they can come to
me with their concerns and I
will address the officer
, .p sqpaUy. Ma.,times,,pur
perception of an event is very ,
'-differentF tanw-hat'ray have '"
actually transpired. I
understand that it can be very
traumatic being pulled over by
a law enforcement officer and
I also understand that Mrs.
Labato's daughter may not
have provided her all the
information pertaining to the
traffic stop.
Finally, would like to
address the comment that the
City of Starke is notorious for
being "known for these types
of incidents." The citizens of
Starke enjoy one of the lowest
crime rates within the state of
Florida. We at the Starke
Police Department strive to
ensure the safety of all


We, as a nation, have
outlived our income for 50
years and belt-tightening time
has come. The time of plentiful
money and luxurious living,
spending money loaned to us
by China, has come and gone,
and while our children have
done well, our grandchildren
are going to live in a very
different financial world.
The national debt, bloated
beyond reason by the Iraqi
War and the lack of taxes to
fund the war, to which we
have added billions of dollars
to bail out private industry, and
will add more billions, will
constitute a burden for our
descendents for the next
several generations. President
Obama didn't address that
issue, but it will be on every
congressional agenda for the
next 100 years.
Early on, during the
presidential campaigns,
candidate' Obama seemed to
offer instant gratification for
all America's ills, and his
acceptance speech seemed to
echo that belief, but he has
said in private conversations
that it will take time to bring
about the changes he
envisions, and some may not
be effective in his first term of
office. The general consensus
of opinion is that change will
come, and the nation will see
tremendous change in a
number of areas, but it won't
happen overnight. And that's
the way is should be.
The best comment I heard
Monday (Inauguration Day)
was by a man whose name I
failed to get, who said,
"Obama wanted to lead and
Bush wanted to leave. When
the door closed on the
helicopter taking Bush and
company to the airport,
champagne corks popped and
Bush proclaimed, 'Let's go to
Texas.'"

the only costs being what it
would be to repair the light.
However, since the daughter
did not have a valid driver's
license and had no insurance
on the vehicle, the outcome
was one citation for $141.
Please know that I am

concerns. I am available
Monday through Friday from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. at (904) 964-

The Bradford County Food Pantry recently received an award from Bill Brown of
Children's Table, while pantry volunteer Ruth Johns also received an award in
recognition of more than 20 years of service. Pictured (I-r) are President Steve
Hayes, Ruth Johns, Director Arley McRae and Bill Brown.


Food pantry installs new


officers, presents awards


The Bradford County Food
Pantry held its annual
luncheon and meeting Jan. 21
at First Presbyterian Church of
Starke, which included
installing new officers and
featured presentations of two
awards.
One award was presented to
-the food pantry volunteers by
Bill Brown of Children's
Table, who said he has never
seen a better volunteer base in
his 20 years of organizing and
donating more than 20 million
pounds of food to similar
organizations.
Another award was
presented to food pantry
volunteer Ruth Johns for her
more than 20 years of service
and selfless dedication.
Officers for 2009 were voted
on and installed. They are:
Rev. Steve Hayes (president),
Rev. Dennis O'Neill (vice


president), Rev. Gary Hardesty
(secretary), Veazie Jones
(treasurer), Arley McRae
(director), Tom Jones (food
coordinator) and Applean
Brown (volunteer coordinator).
The meeting also included a
presentation of highlights from
2008. The food pantry, despite
the current state of the
. economy, fed more than
10,000 people, which equates
to more than one third of the
population of Bradford
County. Of the number fed,
5,051 were children.
,Volunteers processed more
than 5,000 bags of food-
1,000 more than the total from
2007, which was the'previous
high.
Food pantry personnel cite
two reasons for the
organization's continued
existence: the community at
large has supported the


program and volunteer
workers have met-and are
still meeting-the challenges
of feeding people every day.
If an individual, church or
business would like to help
meet the growing need of
supplying food .for the less
fortunate, please call McRae at
(904) 964-2459. Those who
would like to volunteer to help
distribute food may call Brown
at (904) 964-7955.
One of the food pantry's
biggest fundraisers continues
this year when entertainer
James Rogers performs a
concert at the Bradford High
School auditorium Feb. 28 at 7
p.m. Anyone interested in
selling tickets or promoting the,
concert in their church or
organization should call Elissa
Biggs at (904) 964-8988 or
Gladys McRae at (904) 964-
2459.

Store clerks reported that
two male subjects, who had
appeared to be extremely
intoxicated, were asked to
leave. One subject allegedly
became irate, shouted
profanities at the clerks and
slammed the door damaging
the hinges as he exited the
store.
Outside the store, the subject
allegedly began throwing
objects at a store clerk who
followed him out of the store
to write down the vehicle's tag
number. The clerk stated she
was struck with a bottle before
the suspect got into the
passenger side of the vehicle
and drove away.
The suspect vehicle was
later located on 231 South and
a traffic stop was initiated by
Shane, who allegedly detected
a strong odor of marijuana in
the vehicle.
After receiving consent to
search, Shane located a
substance that tested positive
for marijuana and placed the
vehicle's driver, Curtis Nelson,
22, of Starke, under arrest for
possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana.
The store clerk's detailed
description of the suspect who
caused the disturbance
matched that of the passenger
in the vehicle, Shawn Ashley
Gunter, 22, of Hampton. After
being read his .rights, Gunter
stated that the clerks from the
store were "trippin."

mid-morning when heavy
smoke was discovered in the

was heavy smoke coming
from the ceiling. The motor of
an air-conditioner unit
apparently burned up, thus
creating the smoke to fill the
area.

will increase $10 with the
exception of fines for 15-19

the speed limit. These* Will"
increase by $35 with the civil
base fine being increased
from $125 to $150 on the 15-
19 miles over and $150 to
$175 on the 20-29 miles over

In Memory

In Loving Memory of
Joseph Wesley
Jenkins
November 1937-January 1998
In the arms of angels, someone
leaves;
Here on Earth, some grieves;
In just moments from now, a
beautiful mystery somehow;
Someone stands at Heaven's
gate, filled with happiness as
they wait;
No more pain nor tears, only
treasured memories of their
years.
Down here we're holding on,
we can't accept they are gone.
Weeping as we call their name,
our lives will never be the
same.
Someone stands at the gate to
Heaven.
Love always,
Mary, Demetrik,
Derrick, Terry
and Edward

-concerning the holiday season.
.We sometimes take for granted
the special times of the year
when our families come
together to give thanks,
celebrate birthdays and
Christmas, commemorate a
birth or morn a loss.


Such complacency rarely
applies to military families
who have learned to cherish
the limited and precious
opportunities for family
gatherings. This is especially
true with today's generation of
young, American warriors and.

they used to take for granted.
Dan Cosson Jr. grew up as

obtained his private pilot's

International Baccalaureate

entrance to enlist in the Army.
Dan went straight from high
school to basic combat training

division, moved up to the
super late model division and
drove Boatwright's car. All he
did was claim the points
championship.
"I hadn't ever ,'won one in
the super late models, so that
was definitely a highlight,"
Garver said. "I won 10 races,
so that was a good for the first
year driving in that class."
It was the eighth points
championship for Garver, who
has been racing 15 years. He
won the points championship
in the Florida modified
division in the 2007 season
and has competed-with
success-.in just about every
division at Columbia
Motorsports Park.
"I've got a good crew,"
Garver said. "If it wasn't for
them, I couldn't do it."
Despite the fact he missed a
lot of the season, Boatwright
was still able to finish third in
the points standings in the
super late model series.
"I didn't expect to be in the
top five when it was all said
and done," Boatwright said.
. Hodges said his goal was for
one of the Dixie Speed drivers'
to win a points championship
for Harold Davis, who has
supported the team
tremendously. Since Garver
was well on his way to doing
that, Hodges did not want to
hand the keys to the car Garver
was driving back to
Boatwright. Instead, Dixie
Speed purchased another car
for Boatwright to drive.
Therefore, during the second
half of the season, Boatwright
and Garver were battling it out
in the same division,
. "There's no friction between


the two drivers," Hodges said.
"They work together. They're
part of the team."
Boatwright' was quick to
compliment Garver, saying,
"Honestly, I don't know if I
could've done as good as
Jason did at the beginning of
this year.".
Still, despite the missed
time, Boatwright returned to
the track to claim two wins. He
also won three or four heat
races.
Boatwright admitted that he
and Garver can pretty much
bank on finishing first or
second in most races in
Ellisville (the competition is a
little tougher in Georgia,
Boatwright said), but like
Garver, Boatwright said the
credit goes to the Dixie Speed
Racing team.
"-lenry and everybody who
works on the cars usually find
a way to getvthe right parts at
the right time to get us right
back over there somehow,"
Boatwright said.
Hodges recalled one incident
in which one of the Dixie
Speed cars was, as he termed
it, in "intensive care." People
predicted it would take a
month for that car to be ready
for the track, but it took the
Dixie Speed crew just six days.
"People thought I had two of
those little red cars," Hodges
said with a I'augh.
Hodges said the key to
making Dixie Speed Racing a
success is a crew that works on
the cars all the time. It's not
unusual for team members to
show up at the garage on their
days off to work.
Work done in the pits is,
without a doubt, important as
well. The Dixie Speed pit crew
is composed of Boatwright,
Garver, Davis, Betty Combs,
Gene Combs, Wayne Davis,
Ryan Mason, Tim Parrott,


Sonny Taylor and Mike
Zeigler.
Though not members of the
Dixie Speed family, Alldredge
*'and A.C. Morrow could be
thought ,of as adoptive family
members. They are both from
Bradford County and both
made their marks in Ellisville
this year, with Morrow
winning the points
championship in the V-8
bomber division and Alldredge
taking second in the points
race in the pure stock division.
Morrow is no stranger to
racing, but he had been out of
it for approximately 30 years.
"He just wanted to prove he
wasn't getting old," Alldredge
said of' the 65-year-old
Morrow.
Actually, Morrow, said his
inspiration to return to the'
track came from sitting in the
stands at Columbia
Motorsports Park and not
being able to see any Fords
competing on the track.
Morrow is, as Hodges said, a
"dyed-in-the-wool Ford man."
"I kind of. got tired of
watching the ,Chevy", show,"
Morrow said. "I busted it up."
Morrow drives a Ford
Thunderbird, and it's a rarity at
the track.
"I don't think there's another
Ford out there in any class,"
Alldredge said;
Morrow has taken delight in
claiming the division
championship as a "senior
citizen" driving "the heaviest
car with the smallest engine."
Alldredge and Hodges
marvel at the fact Morrow was
out there on the track in a car
with working windshield
wipers and a working AC.
Hodges laughed as he talked
about Morrow riding around
the track listening to his radio.
"It's supposed :to be a true,
off-the-road V-8 stock."


Morrow said. "That's what it
is-a '96 Thunderbird, true to
form."
Prior to racing at this past
year at Columbia Motorsports
Park, Morrow. had raced dirt
tracks for approximately eight
years in the 1970s. In fact,
Alldredge said his father used
to race alongside Morrow.
Alldredge, on the other
hand, is in just his second year
of racing. Still, that "didn't
prevent him from placing
second in the points race in the
pure stock division.
"I didn't think that was even
possible," Alldredge said.
"The guy. who beat me in
points, he's wodn points six
years in a row. These guys
have been racing a long time.
They've got a lot of seat time,"
Alldredge, who, like
Boatwright and Garver, drives
a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, did
not win any feature races at
Columbia Motorsports Park
(he did win both races he ran
in Georgia). He was there
every week, however, placing
in the top three or four after
finishing second in his first
points race of the season.
"I kind of held that position
the rest of the year," he said.
"Then it was just a challenge
to hang onto it."
It was quite the sophomore
outing for Alldredge, who
admitted he was scared his
first time out on the track in
2007.
"These gu)s were flying
around me. I didn't think I'd
ever keep up," he said. "When
I started out, they'd lap me
three or four times every race.
By the end of the season, I was
able to start keeping up with
them some."
Alldredge said he got better
b\ watching the "fast guys."
He would follow them and
mimic their moves. If they got


away from him, he'd simply
ivait for 'them to' come back
around and he would follow
again.
This past year, Alldredge
had people following h.im. He
found it's hard to be the leader.
"When you get out front, it's
a different situation because
everybody's following you,
Waiting for you to screw up,"
Alldredge said.

For Alldredge and the other
drivers, sponsors are
important. As it is, the drivers
pour a lot of their own money
into their cars, but any
assistance they get beyond that
helps keep them on the track.
Two of Alldredge's sponsors
are his brothers: Randy, who is
with Sun State Collision
Center, and Rodney, who
rebuilt the car's roll cage.
"If it wasn't for them
helping me out, I couldn't
race," Alldredge said.
Alldredge's other sponsors
are Holland's Auto Parts and
Hollister,
Morrow's sponsors are
Advance Auto Parts, .Auto
Zone, Bradford Auto Salvage,
Jason Garver Racing, J.T.
Performance, Morrow
Enterprises, Showcase
Advertising, Starke Citgo, Sun
State Collision and Town and
Country Ford.

Sponsors for Boatwright and
Garver are Advance Auto
Parts, the Bradford County
Telegraph, Dick's Wings,
Drummond Financial and
Falstreaux Heating and Air.
The next season at Columbia
Motorsports Park begins the
first week in March. Hodges
said Dixie Speed Racing also
plans to participate in races in
Cecil, Ga., which begin the
first week in April.

A huge second half by
Danerrius Sheffield was not
enough to overcome a slow
start by the Bradford boys'
basketball team, which lost 74-
63 to District 3-4A opponent
Santa Fe Jan. 24 in Alachua.
Sheffield scored 25 points in
the second half, making five
shots from beyond the arc, but
the Tornadoes (15-3, 9-2 in
District 3) never quite
recovered from a poor start
that saw them outscored 20-10
in the first quarter.
"We just came out
sluggish," said Bradford head
coach Mark McGraw, whose
team had won eight straight.
Also,'Santa Fe attempted 55
free throws, while Bradford
attempted just 15. The Raiders
successfully converted on 30
of their attempts.
"That, basically, was the
difference in the game,"
McGraw said.
Eugene Blye helped the
Tornadoes trim Santa Fe's lead
to six at the half. He scored 15
points in the second quarter
and finished with 19 overall.
Sheffield, who scored 27
points, accounted for 11 of
Bradford's 13 third-quarter
points.
Bradford travels to Orange
Park tonight, Jan. 29, to play
district opponent Ridgeview at
7:30 p.m. The Tornadoes

would score the game's first
goal, but her shot attempt in
the seventh minute just sailed
.,high. A few seconds later,
however, the ball was back
inside the Taylor box. Madison
Colaw headed the ball past tfhe
charging goalie for a 1-0
Keystone lead.
The Wildcats tied the game
with a goal in the 11 minute,
but approximately three
minutes later, Taylor was
called for a handball. That set
Crane up for a shot at the goal
from approximately 15 yards
out, which she converted for a
2-1 lead.
Taylor took several shots on
goal the remainder of the half,
but came up empty. That
included a breakaway attempt
that saw Keystone goalie
Cecilie Shealy come out,
challenge her opponent and
successfully make the stop.
That was the Wildcats' last
good look at the goal as they
did not muster much of a threat
in the second half.
Keystone, on the other hand,
took several good shots in the
second half. However, the
Indians only scored once-the
result of a deflection off of a
Tayior player.
The winner of tonight's
quarterfinal game will play
either Tayor or Trinity
Catholic (20-3-2) in the
semifinals Tuesday, Feb. 3.
Keystone would host Taylor or
travel to Ocala to play. Trinity,
while Umatilla would travel in
either scenario.

Goodwin records hat
trick in semifinals
Kayla Goodwin played a
large part in helping the
Indians earn the right to play
for the district championship,
scoring three goals in a 4-1
win over Interlachen in the
semifinals, which were held
Jan. 20.
Goodwin scored the game's
first goal off of an assist from
Ashley Osteen. The Rams
would eventually tie the score,
but Crane gave the Indians a 2-
1 lead when she converted on a
penalty kick.
Any hopes the home team
had were quickly dashed by
two Goodwin goals-both off
of Katie McCollum assists-in
a short span of time in the
second half.


KH boys

finals berth

Tuesday
Can the Keystone Heights
boys' soccer team win a
second straight district
championship? If the Indians
won a semifinal game of the
District 5-3A tournament this
past Tuesday, they will have
put themselves in position to
do just that.
Keystone entered the
tournament-hosted by
Interlachen High' School-as
the second seed after
compiling a 5-1 record against
district foes. The Indians
played third seed Crescent
City. The winner of that game
will play either top seed
Pierson Taylor or fourth seed
Interlachen, who also played
each other this past Tuesday,
in tihe championship game
Friday, fan. 30, at 7 p.m.

Once the Tornadoes created
a cushion, they held the ball,
forcing the Wildcats to commit
fouls.
"They were so tired
defensively they couldn't
make any shots," McGraw
said, noting that Baker scored
just four points in the final
quarter.
Blye scored 10 of his 20
points in the fourth quarter and
made 6-of-7 free throws (he
was 10-of-12 from the foul
line overall).
Sheffield led the Tornadoes
with 23 points, making seven
3-pointers. His eight second-
quarter points helped Bradford
turn a two-point lead into one
of five at the half.
Darrin Blye scored 11
points, while Malcolm Moore
