for help at a residence on the
west end of Union County on
Feb. 1.
Just after midnight on Sunday,
deputies with the Union County
Sheriff's Office responded to a
911 call at a residence on NW
138th Terrace. A frantic 17-
year-old female caller stated
that her stepfather had just shot
her mother.
Deputies arrived on the
scene within minutes and found
Sharon Lanette Bailey,38, lying
in her front yard, dead from an
apparent gunshot wound to the
head. It is believed that she and


her daughter
had been
fleeing from
her husband
at the time she
was shot. It is
alleged that
the daughter
ran inside the 1.

and running to
a neighbor's

Inside
the home,

Robert Bailey, 37, dead from a
fatal gunshot wound with a
12-gauge shotgun lying next to
his body.
Major Garry Seay stated

with the couple.
Seay said deputies had been


called to the
home the week
before regarding
.. allegations
of domestic
violence. The
Department

had visited
the residence
on the day of
the shootings.

Man dies in crash following high-speed BC chase


A high-speed chase that
led law enforcement officers
through Starke and intoAlachua
County ended in a violent crash
that claimed the life of a man
suspected in two. robberies on
Feb. 3.
Capt. Brad Smith of the
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office-said-James Estes, 46,of
Fairbanks (in Alachua County)
fled from deputies after they
attempted to stop him in
connection with a robbery that
occurred just before 3 p.m. at
the Kangaroo on S.R. 16 at
Morgan Road.
The clerk had described a
grey-green Kia Sportage with
a white male driving. Deputies
spoiled a vehicle and. driver
matching the description and
attempted to stop it when the
driver drove away at high
speeds and turned onto Morgan


Road.
. Capt. Smith said deputies
gave chase and followed the
vehicle to Brownlee Road
(C.R. 229) and into Starke. Just
inside the city limits, deputies
and Starke Police Department
officers attempted to set up
a roadblock using stop sticks,
but Estes was able to swerve
through them-and continue his
flight.
Capt. Smith said that
throughout the chase, Estes
repeatedly and deliberately
swerved his vehicle in an
attempt to ram pursuing officers,
and also swerved directly at the
vehicles of innocent bystanders.
Capt. Smith said Sheriff Gordon
Smilh was forced to fire on
,the,, vehicle when it,swerv.ed
directly at him as the chase
was making its way through
Starke.
Capt. Smith said that it


Jaimes Estes


appeared that none of those
shots struck Estes, however.


Aftpr evading the roadblock,
Estes continued to flee from
officers and turned south on
U.S. 301, reaching 80-85 mph
at various times during the
chase.
Capt. Smith said Estes turned
off U.S. 301 onto C.R. 225 at
the Oasis Iounge and fled into
Alachua County..
Deputies from the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office joined
the pursuit and set up roadblocks
in various areas. They also had
a helicopter responding to the
incident.
Just before Estes reached
the intersection of C.R. 225
and C.R. 1475 in Alachua
County, Capt. Smith said he
again swerved directly. at. a
vehicle that contained a driver
and Capt. Eddie Boatwright.as -
passenger. Boatwright fired on
Estes' vehicle and Estes lost


control, ran off the road into
the ditch and struck a culvert,
launching his vehicle some 15-
20 feet into the air.
The vehicle flipped and
and came to rest near the
intersection of the road.
Estes was pronounced dead
at the scene by Bradford County
emergency medical personnel.
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office deputies said that Estes
and his vehicle matched the
description of a suspect wanted
for another robbery at an
.Alachua County store earlier
on the same day.
Capt. Smith said Estes'
criminal history is "very
extensive and violent." It
includes convictions on two
different murder charges,
burglary, and battery on a law
enforcement officer.


During the annual legislative
delegation hearing with
Senator Steve Oelrich and
Rep. Janet Adkins on Jan. 29,
local officials, focused on what
they saw as opportunities to
influence changes to legislation
that cripples, a financially
constrained county.
They also focused on ways
they can bring money into the
county rather than asking for
more or continued funding of
programs during an economic
crisis.
Several city and county
employees as well as a
handful of citizens packed the
courthouse meeting room to
meet the legislators and express
their concerns.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead was
first to speak to Oelrich and
Adkins.. Just last week, the
Alachua County commissioners.

down the opportunity to
construct a new state prison
facility. "I want lo be the first
one to say that we want it here,"
Whitehead said, to a round of
applause, "and I don't know a
soul in the county who opposes
it," said Whitehead.
"If so, we can always move
them to -Al-achua," joked
Oelrich.


Whitehead also pointed out
that the county jail is more
than 60 years old and that
perhaps a new facility could
be considered under President
Barack Obama's new economic
stimulus plan.
Chief Judge-Fredrick Smith
of the Eighth Judicial Circuit
said that he really appreciated
the grant money that was
received for courthouse


renovations in Union County.
"This, courthouse, with the
services of all the county offices
it provides, is an anchor in such

Smith discusses


transition with


commission


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

From e\amnining existing
contracts and learning about the
budget to making plans for the
future. Sheriff Gordon Smith
ga\e the count\ commission a
brief report on his transition last
month.
Smith said the other
constitutional officers have
been nothing but helpful in his
transition from policedepartment
to the sheriff's office, and wanted
to public thank all of those w\ho
have been of assistance.
Smith discussed costs he's
trinIge to cut as well as some
things he'd like to change up.
By telling vendors and service
providers he would look to do
business elsewhere, Smith said
he's been able to negotiate better
prices, lowering the cost of phone
'bills, for example, from 18-24
percent.
Speaking further of cost
cutting measures, he said he was
working with Clay Electric on
an arrangement that would keep
deputies patrolling the south end
of the county from having to
return to Starke to fuel up.
"Driving 30 minutes to get
fuel. 30 minutes back, you burn
a quarter-tank of gas to get there
and back," said the sheriff.
He's also putting inmate work
crews in stripes, green and white
to be specific.
"I want to be able to look
around and know which inmates
are supposed to be in jail and
which are supposed to be out
working doing something,"
Smith said.
Smith said he's heardobjections


from inmates. but they admit
they'd rather be out working than
sitting behind bars all day._
"If \ou don't want to wear
them. don't go to jail and you
won't be embarrassed," Smith
said.
More effective use of that labor
is also planned in the next budget
year. according to the sheriff.
He said he and his officers want
to create a two- or three-day-a-
w\eck work squad for each county
commission district. There are
plenty of inmates, he said, so he
and his officers are working on
scheduling part-ti mers to oversee
those squads.
"Our county should be the
cleanest," Smith said. "We've
got more inmates per capital than
anybody, and there's no excuse
for a dirty street."
Future projects include better
patrol of. distant areas of the
county, including the Brooker
area, as well as the Keystone
Heights and Melrose area, he
said.
"We're trying to work some
number games there and still
maintain equal coverage. "That's
what it's all about, giving
somebody the same coverage,"
Smith said.
Command staff is even using
GPS technology to track deputies
and make sure they are where
they're supposed to be.
The city of Starke has a police
department so county sheriff's
deputies need to be patrolling
rural areas, he added.
He also hopes to restore some
revenue to the jail by negotiating
with the U.S. Marshals to house
out-of-county inmates again.

Sheriff asks for career service repeal


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Most approaching the county's
legislative delegation last week
wanted more money or wanted
money that had been taken aw\ay
restored. Sheriff Gordon Smith,
on the other hand, wanted a
change in law.
Smith asked the delegation
to support repealing the career
service legislation for sheriff's
office employees that Bob Milner
was able- to secure in his-finffal
year before retirement.
The legislation creates an
appeals process for sheriff's
office employees who the
sheriff has decided to suspend
or terminate. Employees attain
career service status following
their probationary first year of
employment.
A career service employee
could only be suspended or
dismissed for cause after
receiving written notice of the
proposed action and being given
the opportunity to respond to
the reasons for the suspension or
dismissal unless the sheriff sees

The sheriff still retains the
right of final determination,
but career service status does
complicate the process.
Milner asked the prior

the change. Sen. Steve Oelrich
and former Rep. Aaron Bean each

has asked the new delegation,
which includes Oelrich and
Reps. Janet Adkins and Charles

Smith said he is pro-employee

do so.

level,adding he would bring back
a "nonpolitical" bill next year
that truly protects employees.
"The one now is not genuine
or sincere," Smith said. He called
it "smoke and mirrors" the way
it creates an appeals process but
leaves ultimate authority with the -
sheriff.
While he said it hadn't
impeded what he's wanted to
accomplish ..during the recent
transition, .Smith said it could
create problems down the line.
"My thing is to come at a later
date, bring a genuine bill back
that gives genuine protections
to employees at certain levels,"
Smith said.
Adkins said she had already
filed language in the House at
SSmith's request. The delegation.
as a whole voted in favor of
the repeal, although as Oelrich
pointed out, there is no guarantee
the new request will "make it
through the system."
Smith said there are a number
of protections in place for
employees in the state, including
the officers' bill of rights.

City approves contracts on sewer plant


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


The city commission approved.
a recommendation from its en-
gineer to award contract for up-
grades tq its sewer plant worth
almost $1.6 million.
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection has agreed to
fund the upgrades in sewage treat-
ment. That money will come later
this year. In the meantime, the
city has borrowed funds through
Florida Rural Water Association.
Engineer Gary Sneddon of
Stone, Joca and Associates said
three companies responded to the
two-part request for proposals, but
only one responded to both parts.
The first part was the site work
needed, and the second part was
the building and biosolids' treat-
ment system.
The'site work was awarded to
Sawcross Inc. for $236,000. Saw-
cross has worked with the city be-
fore on the upgrade.
Revered Group of America
LLC was awarded the contract for
the building and treatment sys-
tem, which will cost the city near-
ly $1.35 million. Its subcontractor,
BCR Environmental constructs-
and sold the city on the Bio-Chem
Neutralizer treatment system.
The system treats wastewa-
ter and produces a higher class
of biosolids than is produced by
the existing wastewater treatment
process. The odor-free biosolids
arc pathogen free and can be used
as fertilizer. In addition to envi-
ronmental benefits, the city will
avoid spending tens of thousands

BCE reps also said the city
would realize reduced energy and
labor costs.
The city will save some of
the money (around $80,000) ap-
proved in the second contract by


direct purchasing goods to avoid
paying sales tax.
The project will proceed pend-
ing concurrence by DEP. on the
contract awards. Also, according
to Sneddon, the city and BCE
must work out an agreement for
the long-term operation and use
of the Bio-Chem system.

Curtis White, Minister of
the Church of Christ in
Lawtey, would like to say
greetings to all of
Bradford County in
Christian Love.
Today I would like to deal
with the question that
many religious people are
asking today and that is,
"Are all the different
churches from God?" And
the answer is a resounding
NO. The Bible declares
that there is but one
church (Eph 4:4).

If you are just honest with yourself, just look
around right here in Bradford County on Sunday
mornings and you will see division. Division
among the races and religious doctrines, (or
teachings). Would you say that this is the Will of
God, or the Will of Man? The Bible tells us in I1
Cor 14:33 that God is not the author of
confusion. When men establish or invent their
own doctrines, it brings about nothing but
confusion as to where many honest'people don't
know what to believe. My friends, if there's ever
going to be unity, we must all stay with the Word
of God and preach the same thing (I Cor 1:10).
The church that you are a member of where
did it originate from? Who is it's founder? Is it
mentioned by the Apostles? Do you worship
according to New Testament teachings?
The Lord founded his church and gave it to
the world centuries before Catholicism, Baptist,
Methodism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses,
Pentecostalism, and Seventh Day Adventism and
others were ever known.
The Lord's church is none of these, neither is
it denominational in any sense!
Denominationalism divides people; promotes
sectarian strife, competition and rivalry; it
contradicts the plain teaching of the Bible; and
goes contrary to our Savior's prayer for unity
(John 17:20-21).
Some men will tell you (1) attend the church
of your choice; (2) We all believe in the same
God; (3) All churches belong to Christ; (4) It
doesn't matter so long as your heart is right; (5)
The church is in your heart; or (6) Just ask the
Lord to come into your heart and your life and
be your personal Savior.

Now I want to ask you an honest
question...Where are any of these sayings in the

Curtis L. White, minister
Holy
Scripture? NO WHERE!
The Bible says in I Cor 4:6 that we should not
think of man above that which is written. -
. Saul was a man that was honest, sincere, and
religious, but yet in his condition he was lost
(Acts 26: 1-11). As we know he was later added
to the Body of Christ. But what did Saul do?
Well he heard the gospel of Jesus Christ, (not a
perverted gospel, but the truth). He believed
what he heard,' repented of his sins, and was
Baptized for the remission of sins. Question;
what did your Baptism make you? Did it make
you a '- hristian? Or did you become a member
of a man-made institution? Paul said that, "We
must prove all things." (I Thess 5:21).
Now Mr. White,.how can I know if I am or not
a member of the church that was purchased.by
Christ? Paul said in II Cor. 13:5 to examine
yourselves, whether ye3 be in the faith;
(Remember now, that there is only one true faith,
Eph. 4:5) Paul said to prove your own selves.
The term, "prove" means to test.
Therefore in order to prove your own self to
be right religiously one must first test his or
herself religiously. Question; How does one test
their religious beliefs?
Answer: One can only test his or her religious
beliefs with the Word of God.
Therefore, when one takes a spiritual analysis,
which outlines what one has already believed in
light of what Christ has actually said, one would
have just tested their religious beliefs with the
Word of God.
In particular, one should examine what Christ
has said about the subject of...(l) the church, (2)
how to become a member of the church, (3)
Baptism, (4) the Holy Spirit, (5) Salvation, (6)
the acts of worship within the church.
The Church at Lawtey awaits your visit, a
Church for All People, of All Races! May the
God of Heaven bless you, please feel free to
write me at Lawtey Church of Christ, P.O. Box

Bradford Middle School student Joshua Hayes was chosen to attend the presidential
inauguration.


Bradford Middle School student

gets opportunity of a lifetime


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer

When Joshua Hayes was
a fifth-grade student in
Bradford County, his teacher
recognized him as a student who
demonstrated leadershippotential
and nominated him to participate
in the National Young Leaders
Program, a program offered
by the Congressional Youth
Leadership Council (CYLC).
Since that time, CYLC has
stayed in contact with Hayes,
12, wh9 is now a seventh-grader
at Bradford Middle School.
Hayes is also a member of the
council's alumni and was invited
to attend a week of activities in
Washington D.C. leading up to
the inauguration of President
Barack Obama and Vice President
Joe Biden.
Sixth- and seventh-grade
school students across the nation
were chosen for the event because

The week-long schedule of
events included' meetings with
the former secretary of state and
founder of America's Promise
Alliance General Colin Powell
(Ret.), and former Vice President
Al Gore. Most exciting to Hayes,
though, was listening to Erik
Weihenmayer, the only blind
person who has ever climbed to
the top of the Seven Summits-
the highest mountains on every
continent-including guiding
blind Tibetan teenagers to 21,500
feet on the north side of Mt.
Everest.
Along with his group, Hayes
visited theSmithsonian Institution
and other historic monuments on
the National Mall, viewed the
inaugural parade over lunch at
the historic Marriott Wardman

Inaugural Ball.

watchers for the 12"' annual Great
Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) Feb.
13-16. A joint project of the Cornell
Lab of Ornithology and the National
Audubon Society, this free event is
an opportunity for families, students
and people of all ages to discover
the wonders of nature in backyards,
schoolyards-andlocal parks, and, at
the samne-time,< make an important

Participants count birds and report
their sightings online at www.
birdcount.org.
"The Great Backyard Bird Count
benefits both birds and people," said
Audubon Education Vice President
Judy Braus. "It's a great example
of citizen science: Anyone who
can identify even a few species
can contribute to the body of
knowledge that 'is used to inform
conservation efforts to protect birds
and biodiversity. Families, teachers,
children and all those who take part
in GBBC get a chance to improve
their observation skills, enjoy nature
and have a great time counting for
fun, counting for the future."
Anyone can take part-from
novice bird watchers to experts-by
counting birds for as little as 15
minutes (or as long as they wish) on
one or more days of the event and
reporting their sightings online at
www.birdcount.org. Participants can
also explore what birds others are
finding in their backyards, whether

Hayes said the best part of the
trip was meeting new friends
who share the same interests he
does. His' biggest bummer, he
said, was losing his cell phone at
the airport on the way home.
"I got to hang out with some
of the best kids I've ever met,
kids I have a lot in common
with. I collected a bunch of
phone numbers and gave them
my number, but without the cell
phone, I can't ever keep in touch
with them."
Bradford Middle School
guidance counselor Monica
Kadlec said that, all in all, Hayes
is a very well rounded young
man. "You can have a mature
conversation with him about
what's going on in the world,'
then have him switch right into
talking about something many

Landscaping for butterflies is easy

Secondhand

smoke: How

to protect

your kids
Studies show that a person
breathing secondhand smoke
is exposed to some of the same
cancer causing agents as the
person who smokes.
Sadly, children are powerless
to protect themselves from the'
dangers of secondhand smoke.
But everyone each can play an'
important role in protecting
them from secondhand smoke
exposure.
Make your home and vehicle
smoke-free at all times. If there
are smokers in your family, they
should always go outside to
smoke. Opening a window is not
enough.
Make sure your children's
day care centers and schools are
100 percent smoke- and tobacco-
free. .
1* Insist' that no one smokes
around your children.
Choose smoke-free places
for family activities.
And the single best step.qu
can take to protect your faminT's
health and your own is to quit
smoking. Quitting smoking will
also reduce the chance that your
children will grow up to become
smokers themselves.
While quitting smoking may.
be difficult, there are a number.
of proven resources available to
help including free counseling
and a range of FDA-approved
medications. To receive free
counseling to help you quit,
please call toll-free (877) 822-
6669. For more information on

said she would have been happier with a few
more volunteers on staff and warmer weather, but
added, "It'- 1o. good facility. Everyone seems to
enjoy coming here,"
Gilstrap was happy that all tihe park's bathrooms
worked, It was the first year since the park opened
that bathrooms didn't present a problem for the
tournaimen-t.
For the first lime this year, the Rotary charged


for in-park parking.
The inside lot can hold upwards of 500 cars.
Waters said that a $5 parking fee is common at
comparable soccer tournaments elsewhere.
"Plus in some places you have to walk a mile
to get to the field, once you've paid to park," he
added.
Not all the visitors were happy about the new
charge. Parking was free along Twin Lakes Road.
Willis said some who complained hadn't realized,
the money %would go to local charities.
"Next year we'll make sure people know ahead
of time where the money goes," he said.

Park of Palms opens spring


conference, music series


At Little Rain Lake Park last Saturday, baseball dads (1-r) Dale Davenport, Frank
Velazquez and Mitch Dicks waited for prospective KRA players. Dicks said they
are expecting around 75 to sign up and already have about 35. Registration runs
through March 1.


KRA registering through March 1


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor

The Keystone Recreation
Association is registering for
the baseball, softball and T-ball
season each Saturday, 9 a.m. to
noon, now through March 1.
Registration is held in the
KRA clubhouse at Little Rain
Lake Park, off S.R. 21 north.
? Skills and evaluation will be
held Saturday, Feb. 14; practice
begins Feb. 16 and opening


day is March 14. Fees are $75
per player, which includes the
uniform. Family discounts are
available for those with three or
more players.

KRA Vice President Mitch
Dicks said the group had been
working with Sherman Phillips
of Clay Electric Cooperative
and he thought KRA had their
problem with high light bills
solved. The cooperative began
to waive the demand fee which


brought the bill down to a
dollar figure the organization
could handle.
Dicks, said this year KRA
will also feature adult co-ed
softball. Registration runs
through March 1. Registration
fees are $250 per team. Games
begin March I and run through
May 30. Players must be 16
years of age or older.

The Park of the Palms' 2009
ministerial conference and
concert series got off to a good
start Saturday and will run
through late March.
Conference speakers are
brought in for a week of Bible
study and prayer, with an out-
of-town trip on Fridays. Then
a musical artist performs on
Saturday night to close out the
week.
Last Saturday night, Southern
gospel songwriter Ray Holliday
gave a short but impressive
concert for about 60 park seniors
hale enough to brave the cold,
plus a few other visitors of
various ages.
Before the concert, there was a
dinner at the park's Weir dining
hall, as there will be before the
concert each Saturday night for
the next six weeks.
Dinners and concerts are open
to the public at large. Concerts
are free, though a love offering
is taken. Dinners are $10 per
person plus tax; reservations
must be made in advance.
Bob Sabo Jr. is back and the
park has him. He looks great,
by the way, younger and rested
and less frazzled than during
his last days at his Keystone
Heights Italian restaurant, which
closed last year. And he looked
comfortable in the Park of the
Palms kitchen.
For the music series, Agnes
Dixon and other park staff have
assembled a roster of first-
time artists plus some favorites
returning from years past.

This kid-friendly dental van stops at Keystone Heights Elementary School several
times each year.


Special program provides dental care


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor

Once every four weeks, a
$Iig van painted with a jungle
stene shows up at Keystone
Heights Elementary School.
On the days the van is there,
very 30 minutes or so a
student disappears inside.
\Vhen they come out they are
dhrrying a small ,bag and their
sVmiles are bigger and prettier
than ever. The van dispenses
dental care.

The Baker County Alliance
Rendering Excellent Smiles,
children's dental bus, parks
at Clay County schools the
f~rst and second week of
every month, and appears at
Keystone Elementary every
third month.
It also appears at the
Bradford County Health
Department during the fourth


week of every month and in
Union County on the third
week of each month.
Robin White, who .runs
the nurses' clinic at KHES,
guesses that about 40 students
from the elementary school
use the van.
While on the campus, the
van also takes students from
Keystone Heights High.School
.and McRae Elementary'School
as well.
Parents of McRae students
drive their children in for
appointments. Students at the
high school can get permission
frorh parents to walk over to
be seen.
"They don't do braces,"
White said, "but I have seen
them take two or three visits
before special needs students
are comfortable enough to
allow them to take x-rays or
even do a filling. They have
taken students without medical

A dentist, a hygienist and
support personnel staff the
van.
The children love going,
White said, "I've never taken
one out that pitched a fir. They
are made to feel. welcome and
safe. They are told what the
care providers are going to do.
There are no surprises."

Parents sign a form stating
that they have permission to
provide whatever services are
needed. Students get a parent
notification form at each visit,
letting families:, know what
services were'"provided that
day. If a parent wants to know
what time their child will be
seen, van providers will call
in advance to notify them of
.appointment times..
The Baker CARES bus
visits are sponsored in a joint


effort by the Union, Bradford
and Clay County Health
Departments and the Union,
Clay and Bradford County
School Boards.

dental exams and x-rays,
cleaning, sealants, fillings and
extractions, local anasthesia
and pre- and post-op
mediations. Children enrolled
in Medicaid or Access Health
Solutions programs arc eligible
for services.
In Clay County, the van
will show up again the second
week of February, and again in
May, August and November.

Children enter the program.
through school nurse referrals
as well as parental applications.
Parents must register their
.children in advance, providing
basic information and the
child's health history. Forms
are available at the school.
As many children as possible
are seen during each visit, but
sometimes not all children can
be seen on the same day.

News papers Con n ect Communities


Strong communities are all about strong relationships and connections;
citizens and their government; citizens and community businesses; local
government and local businesses; citizens and local, social cultural
institutions. Nothing facilitates or creates those relationships and
connections like America's community newspapers. In cities and towns
served by a community newspaper of 25,000 circulation or less, 86 percent
of the population read a community newspaper each week. No other media
has that kind of reach into and throughout those communities.
This is among the findings of the 2008 research conducted for the. National
Newspaper association by the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri
School of Journalism at the University. of Missouri. The findings are
consistent with two earlier research efforts by NNA and RJI's Center for
Advanced Social Research.
The connections between community newspapers and their readers, and
the resulting connection of those readers to local advertisers, remains strong
in communities across America. To many readers, the weekly advertisements
are a form of news, weekly specials or sales, the launch of new businesses
and services, the introduction of new products, and even a barometer of the
economic health and vitality of the community.

Along Main Street Across The Nation
* 79 percent of adults 18 and older read the classified ads.
* 73 percent read the grocery or supermarket advertisements and/or inserts.
* Half rely most on their community newspaper for grocery shopping
information. That's twice that of the next most relied source: In-store
promotions. And 10 times more than the third most relied upon source:
Direct mail.
* 72 percent of community newspaper readers read the hardware and home
improvement advertisements.
* About 28.percent rely most on their community newspaper for home
improvement shopping information. That's about 50 percent more than.the
next most relied upon source: In-store promotions. And three times more
than the third most relied upon source: The Internet.
* 66 percent of community newspaper readers read the department store ads.
* 65 percent of community newspapers readers read the discount store ads.
* 62 percent of community newspaper readers read the public notice ads.
* 81 percent believe government should be required to publish public notices
in the local newspaper:
About 78 percent of all adults said they rarely or never use the radio to
make purchasing decisions; 69 percent said they rarely or never use direct
mail to make purchasing decisions; 59 percent say they rarely or never use
TV to make purchasing decisions; 58 percent said .they rarely or never use
the Yellow Pages for buying decisions; 41 percent said they rarely or never
use the Internet for buying decisions.
However, 71 percent found newspaper ads helpful in making purchasing
decisions. That compares with almost 50 percent in 2007 and 41 percent in
2005.
"It's clear that newspapers provide a strong connection between local
readers and local businesses and services," says John Stevenson, NNA


president and publisher of the Randolph Leader in Roanoke, AL.
This year's survey asked questions that had been asked in a similar
Canadian study.
* About 79 percent of respondents said they would rather look through
newspaper ads than watch ads on TV. This compares to 61 percent in the
Canadian survey.
* Three-quarters of adults said they would rather look through newspaper
ads than view ads on the Internet.
* A little more than 70 percent somewhat-to-strongly agree that they go,
looking for and through newspaper ads. This is comparable to the.
Canadian response.
* Nearly 70 percent somewhat-strongly agree that they enjoy reading
advertising in their local paper. This compares to 66 percent in the
Canadian survey.
"Buyers read newspapers." said Brian Steffens, NNA's executive director,
"and our research shows there is no stronger media for connecting a
community, its people, government and economic vibrancy."
* About 78 percent of those surveyed said they planned to purchase health
or medical products or services in the next year.
* 73 percent plan to buy women's clothing.
* 60 percent plan to buy men's clothing.
* 58 percent plan to purchase "travel," air, hotel, cruise, rental car, etc.
* 52 percent plan to purchase lawn and garden supplies or services.
* 41 percent plan to buy electronics, Newspapers and the Internet were tied
as the most relied upon source for electronics shopping information.
* Nearly 35 percent plan to buy cell phones or cell phone service.
Newspapers and the Internet were tied, right behind in-store promotion, as
the most relied upon source for cell phone shopping information.
* 34 percent plan to buy financial or insurance products or services.
* 25 percent plan to buy furniture.
* 28 percent rely most on their community newspaper for information for
home furniture shopping. That's about 4 percent more than the second
most relied:upon source: In-store promotions; and more than twice that of
the third most relied upon source: The Internet.
* 16 percent plan to buy appliances.
* 26 percent rely most on their community newspaper for information for
major appliance purchase, 7 percent more than the next most relied upon
source: In-store information and the Internet (tie); and four times more
than the fourth most relied upon source, magazines.
* 11 percent plan to buy a used vehicle.
* 9 percent plain to buy a new vehicle.
* Readers rely equally on newspapers, dealerships and the Internet for
information for new car purchases (about 18 percent each).
"That's .a solid shopping list for Main Street America." Stevenson said,
"And community newspapers help both buyers and sellers."

stability and remain funded by
court filing fees regardless of
the economic situation.
Oelrich agreed. "The court
system and law enforcement
are two areas that do not and
cannot have services suspended
just because the economy is
bad," Oelrich said.
Superintendent Carlton
Faulk said that even with the
extreme state budget cuts in the
school district, Union County
is still managing to get by,
however, he has a few worries
over the required classroom
reduction sizes. Union County
schools are just able to meet the
required reductions, and with
the way the county continues
to grow, tfiis could soon be
of even greater concern to the
county.
Adkins said she completely
understands and that what is
needed during hard economic
times is flexibility in the
classrooms. ,She. said she is
'currently working on a bill
with District 5 Senator Stephen
Wise (R-Jacksonville) that
addresses education concerns
such as this.
Oelrich s said he 'feels
that perhaps what is needed

for school districts is that
the classroom reduction
amendment itself be revisited.
He said he doesn't know if
there was supposed to be some
kind of magic to the number of
students the state has mandated
per classroom, but knows that
when he attended school there
were 30 or more students per
classroom and he still received
a quality education.
School board member
Marsan Carr said that she
was pleased the governor had
recently reinstated funds that
had been cut from adult and
technical school education
and asked that the legislators
keep the importance of these
programs at the Bradford-
Union !Area Career Technical
Center in mind.
"The tech center is
significantly under funded,"
Carr said, "and we want to
make sure the school district
gets a share of funding to keep
the programs available."
Oelrich .agreed that not
everybody is going to attend
college, and technical-
vocational training properly
trains many student and adults
to get them into the workforce.
School Board Member Alvin
Griffis said h "would like to
see some revisions made to the
FCAT.
"You know, I don't think
anyone realized the depth
of the cost of implementing
the FCAT; namely in- and
after-school tutors, science.
reading and math coaches aud
additional reading teachers. "If
we continue to put this kind.
of pressure on students, the
dropout rate will continue to
increase. It is not fair for one
high-stakes test to carry so
much weight," Griffis said
He also thanked the
representative for her stand
against privatizingthe Northeast
Florida State Hospital in Baker


County. There are a number
of employees at that hospital
who live in not only Unioni
County, but also Alachua,
Baker, Nassau and Duval
counties. Adkins replied, "It's
going to take some work, but I
am committed to do whatever I
can to keep that hospital from
being privatized."
She said that she attended
a Veteran's Day event there
and was impressed at the'
community support and the
way they rallied around the
mentally ill during a parade last
November. She added that there
are also plans to file another bill
that deals with mental health in
the prison system.
"I was astonished when I
toured Union Correctional
Institution and saw there
.were more than 300 mentally
,ill patients there. Certainly,
.another type of setting will
serve them better," she said.
Judge Smith said that there
are more than 100 people in the
Alachua County Jail that are
.there because they have some
form of mental illness. "They
are more there for illness than
because of criminal intent, but
there is nowhere else to take
them. Not one dime of funding
is available for programs to
assist them, something that
would be more productive than
just locking them up," Smith
said.
City Manager John
Berchtold asked his legislators
for assistance in changing
growth management laws
that are too restricting for a
small community. "There is a
complicated process that takes
up to a year to complete and
even that's with us helping to
push it through the system," he
said. Berchtold was referring
to the red tape one must go
through when trying to 'bring

county.
Adkins and Berchtold
talked abouit House Bill .347
dealing with small businesses
in Florida. "The regulations
are killing small businesses in
Florida," Adkins said. "We lose
businesses all the time because
it is easier for them to go
through the approval process in
Georgia than to go through the
seven or eight steps in North
Florida."
Joe Pietrangelo with
the Union County Health
Department said that Union
County has one of the smallest
health departments in the state
but it is one of the busiest.
"Union County has the
second highest maternal
death rate and the highest
., iabetes rate in the state," he
said. Union has one health
department for all uninsured
people in the county-which
is a large number. The health
department is often the only
medical treatment facility for
the uninsured in the county;
however, the budget does not
allow the facility to' keep a
physician on staff every day
of the week. As a result, many
who need -health care do not
see a physician and end up in
the hospital.
Oelrich asked if the health
department referred patients to
the Acorn Clinic.
"Yes," Pietrangelo said,
"but they are often at capacity.
For example, the wait for
adult dental care is currently
14 months." The State of
Florida, Office of Rural Health
is currently revising its rural
health plan and held a regional
meeting in Starke on Feb. 4,
for residents to provide input
on ways to improve the health
status of those -living in rural
communities. The outcome 'of
that meeting was not available
at press time.

Yesterdays Fest draws

record crowd to Gold Head ,


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Crystal Tenerani was
responsible for coordinating
talent and exhibits at the
Yesterdays Festival at Gold
Head Branch State Park last
Saturday. She was afraid .she
might have a hard time
attracting exhibits since last
year the event got rained out.
That problem didn't happen.
"We increased the number


of vendors and exhibits by
about 25 percent this year,"
she said. She was expecting
attendance to break all records
too.
By noon, the parking lots
were filled and automobiles
were still lining up outside the
gate at S.R. 21. Park
management set up an extra
ticket booth at the front gate to
help speed up the $4 exchange
per auto and keep traffic from


backing up along S.R. 21.
Other than the gate fee into the
park, the event was free.
Keystone Heights residents
may have become a little blase
about the annual festival, but
that didn't mean everyone
from outside the Lake Region
has too. The parking lot was
filled with license plates from
Duval, Volusia and Suwanee
counties and states as far away
as Pennsylvania.
Park volunteer and camper
Joy Brannen and her husband
came here a few weeks ago
from South Dakota. "The last
thing we did, before we left
was sell the snow blower," she
said.
Yes, the Paso Fino horses
were back but they had as

A little before noon,

This year's regional playoffs
will still include the Keystone
Heights boys' soccer team,
which is participating for the
seventh straight year, but the
Indians couldn't enter the
playoffs with their second
straight district championship,
losing 2-1 to Pierson Taylor in
the District 5-3A final Jan. 30
in lnterlachen.
The loss puts the Indians
(I -13-2) on the road for the
Rgion 2 quarterfinals, which
are tonight, Feb. 5, at 7 p.m.
Keystone plays Mount Dora
(13-5-4), while Taylor (12-5-
1), as the .District 5 champ,
will host Trinity Catholic (I11-
6-5).
Keystone failed to create
many opportunities in the loss
to Taylor, but came close to
actually tying the game in the
game's last five minutes that
saw the Indians playing with
quite a bit of urgency and
aggression. Winston

Taylor goalie made a save on.
However, less than a minute
later, the goalie came out of
the net to challenge Justin
Hannah. The goalie failed to
wrap up the ball, allowing?
Hannah to dribble past him:
and put the ball into the back
of the net.
The Indians quickly seized
control of the ball after it was
put back into play and pushed
it quickly upfield. What
followed was another play in
the box that resulted in the
Taylor goalie leaving the game
with an injury. However, he
made the save just the same to
preserve his team's lead.
It was the third straight year
the Indians and the Wildcats
have battled each other in the
district tournament finale.
Keystone won last year's
matchup, but, lost to Taylor in
2007.
Taylor scored its first goal in
the 19"h minute, but the Indians

approximately seven minutes
later. Keystone was awarded a

Taylor went up 2-0 with a

If Keystone beats Umatilla
in the regional quarterfinals, it
will either host Trinity

play Taylor in the semifinals
on Tuesday, Feb. 10.

benefits."
Another problem is that
because of a lick of funding, a
permanent team of trained
observer controllers cannot be
established. Observer
controllers are trained on how
the SRI equipment works and,
in turn, train the Guardsmen
who are training with it.
Observer controllers work in
the field with the Guardsmen
and, as their name suggests,
observe the training scenarios
as they unfold and provide
evaluation.
Peppel said the observer-
controller team for the
exercises at Camp Blanding
was composed of 130
Guardsmen from 15 states.
Those Guardsmen did not meet
with SRI personnel until they
arrived at Camp Blanding.
Dennis Caylor, network
operations chief for SRI, said
team members got just a half
hour of training on the SRI
equipment.
"We really were behind the
curve," Caylor said. "We need
to do better to get them read-
ahead packets-bring this to
them and show them what's
available. That caused lot of
frustration."
First Lt. Phillip Patti, an
observer controller from Ohio,
said he and other observer
controllers got their first
instruction in the SRI-
technology two to three days
before the Wisconsin unit's
training began. He said the
technology was great when it
worked, but admitted he and
others were having trouble
making it work.
"It does take time to learn
'it," Caylor said. "Obviously,
we need to do better showing
them the tool."
Several' members of the 32nd
Infantry Brigade Combat
Team said the equipment
failed to work at times. Capt.
Andrew Weiler said- the
equipment failed to work as it
did during demonstrations.
"What we got from it was
below standard," he said.
SRI personnel chalked
complaints of the equipment
not working to the fact that the
Guardsmen most likely did not
perform such operations as
changing the batteries of the
EDIs every night.
Peterson admitted he did not
like wasting time at night
performing such tasks. The
technology, as it was presented
to him, was '"cool" in theory,
but he said he just did not
know how useful it was.

opinion, wasn't worth it,"
Peterson said.
"They definitely work,"
Taylor said, "but we definitely
don't find them that useful for
our training."
Again, Peppel said the
usefulness is not fully
appreciated unless one can see
the data that is collected.
"It really comes down to the
guys at the lpwest level getting
an opportunity to see the
feedback that the system
provides," Peppel said.
Sgt. Josh Nickels, who
monitored data transmitted by
EDIs as training scenarios
were ongoing, sees the benefit
of such technology. A
commander, he said, cannot be
in multiple places at onetime,
but by reviewing the data
collected by the EDI, he can
see how his entire unit
performed during the training
scenarios.
"A commander can't always
be there," Nickels said. "This
allows him to kind of see
what's going on at those
(different) places."
Some Guardsmen
complained the EDI was too
bulky. It is designed to be
carried on the soldiers" backs
as surrogates for the rear SAPI
(small-arms protective insert)
plates of their interceptor body
. armor vests. Peppel said the
EDI devices are the same
height and weight as the SAPI
plates, but 10-percent thicker.
"They're too thick,"
Peterson said.
Taylor said what makes the
equipment especially bulky is
that the soldiers were wearing
it with MILES (multiple
integrated laser engagement
system) equipment. MILES is
designed, through the use of
lasers, to record hits and kills
by simulated weapons fire.
Several Guardsmen said the
MILES was not working
properly as it was recording

Tudor finery to Civil War and
World War II combat gear.
Plus there were trolley rides
and hikes around the park, re-

Nickels said the MILES
equipment can be. fairly
complicated, with a number of
resets required to prepare it for
use.
"If that's not done properly,
it will show them as dead, or it
will show them in a state
they're not supposed to be in,"
Nickels said.

BHS
graduate: a
published
author of
books and
articles
One of the two smallest
counties in Florida,,and with a
correspondingly small
population base, Bradford
County, has produced ean
inordinate number of people
whose exploits are known far
beyond county lines.
,Unfortunately, we were
unaware of anyone currently
moving up to a position of
prominence until recently
when Bradford High School
graduate Debbie Mitchell Coty
emerged as an author of
renown with two historical
novels published and selling
well, along with co-authoring
,another and writing literally
dozens of articles published in
magazines, newspapers,
anthologies and trade journals.
More interestingly, this is a
second career, beginning at
middle-age, after having
worked in a non-related field
for 20 years, or more. It's an
interesting story.
Coty's parents, Frank and
Adele Mitchell, came to Starke
in the late 1950s for Frank to
work as administrator for Dr.
Haupt's osteopath clinic. He
later left to accept employment
in the Florida State Prison
Hospital (now Union
Correctional Institution) and
later became supervisor of
education in Florida State
Prison, from which he retired.
Adele taught in Bradford
County schools until her
retirement.
Coty was born in Jasper in
1957 and was still ,an infant
when the family moved to
Starke. In school, she was a
good student, vivacious and
outgoing, active in girls'
sports, with tennis. becoming
*htri6fri-f preference.
Following graduation in
1975, Coty enrolled in the
University of South Florida for
two years, then transferred to
the University of Florida for
her final two years, earning a
degree in occupational therapy,
a vocation she would follow
until she made a career change.
In 2002, at age 45, she was
sitting in a dentist's waiting
room feeling disconsolate
about her career and "the fact
her youngest child was leaving
the nest when an ad for a
writer's contest caught her eye.
She thought, "Writing? Me?


Debbie Coty


Dare I take the risk? Well, why
not?" Coty had an abiding
faith in God and sought,
through prayer, his guidance
and leadership with the
thought uppermost in her
mind, "If he wills it, he fulfills
it."
The die was cast, and Coty
began preparation for the new
career, although she had no
background in literary activity
other than having been a
vociferous reader down
through'the years.
Obviously, writing requires
more than a desire to put
words together, and Coty
began to explore all facets of
the craft, taking courses in
grammar, style and
punctuation, and talking to
people who were successful in
publishing various papers. She
entered the contest, but despite
failing to win (or even place),
she soldiered on. Early failures
didn't deter her, nor did they
extinguish the flame that
burned within.
In the first year of writing,
she saw 10 of her articles
published, and has now seen
more than 80 articles in print.
During the next five years, she
wrote two historical novels,
"The Distant Shore" and,
"Billowing Sails," based on
the true story of a young girl's
incredible journey of faith on
remote, untamed Merritt Island
(on Florida's east coast) in
1904. The two books, with
heroine Emma Lee Palmer, are
stories of hard-scrabble
families scratching out a living
in a tropical paradise,
cognizant of life as it was lived
in the urban communities of.
Miami and other coastal
Florida towns of the time, but
loving the rugged rural life on
Merritt Island and its diverse
characters living there.
"The Distant Shore" and its
sequel "Billowing Sails" tell


* Page 4B


the story of a 9-year old girl
leaving her home and family in
Miami in the year 1904 and
going to live with an o-d--a-i -,
school teacher aunt on Merritt
Island. A precocious child,
wise beyond her years, she was
adored by everyone, and
participated in a number of
adventures during the three
years covered in the stories.
The books, while fiction, are
an adaptation of a real-life
experience of Kathryn
Harrison, whose life on Merritt
Island occurred about 30 years
earlier. The story, though
perhaps a little saccharine, was
never dull and maintained the
interest of the reader
throughout.
"The Distant Shore" jumped
to number two on the VR
Publishing best-seller list
within four months of its 2007
release. "Billowing Sails,"
released in December 2008,
bids to become similarly
successful. The publisher,
Barbour Books, has requested
Coty write several chapters for
four devotional books that will
also feature articles by
published .authors Patsy
Clairmont and Anita Renfro.
This is a real compliment to a
fledging new writer, to be sure.
Unlike many authors .who
write a single book (think
Margaret Mitchell, author of
"Gone With the Wind," ) and
disappear from the radar
screen, Coty "continues writing
and publishing books and
assorted papers, and has
expanded her contributions to
the literary world by teaching
workshops and leading free
writers' mini-workshops at
bookstores and libraries. In her
resume, Coty says she is
"excited that my inspirational
speaking invitations are
exploding." It is refreshing to
learn of a person willing to
freely share his or her
education and talents with
others.

Coty and her husband,
Charles "Chuck" Coty, live in
Seffner in Hillsborough
County near Tampa, where he
is self-employed as a financial
planner. With two children,
Christi and Matthew grown
and living independently, the
Cotys are empty nesters, living
acti e lives in their
community. Coty's sister and
brother-in-law, Cindy and Jim
Hardee, also live in Seffner.
The two families will be joined
by Adele and Frank Mitchell
later this year as they relocate
to Seffner.

Mike Hammonds was born, raised, and still lives in
Nicholasville, Kentucky. He grew up like I did, listening
to the Grand Ole Opry and watching shows like Porter
Wagoner and the Wilburn Brothers. Some of his
heroes in the music field were #1 Merle Travis, Doc
Watson and Stonewall Jackson. My favorite song that
Mike has written is a tribute to Merle Travis. In the
song he talks about seeing Merle play the "Nine Pound
Hammer" on the Porter Wagoner Show. Mike was only
10 years old at that time and his life was changed
forever. He would walk down the street to a neighbor
friend- Ronald Lane, who helped him. with his first
chords on a guitar. Some of his other local heroes on
the guitar were Doug Stipes and Ray.Allen Stipes. To
Mike and I both, Ray Allen Stipes is the "Clayton
DeLaney" of Nicholasville. Dean Osborne is a good
friend of ours who also came to some of those early
jam sessions at the, fire house. Dean is a great
musician with two great bands, Eastbound and
Bluetown,.He Jis also a-Pinecastle Recording Artist, but
h-e i-alsso a bluegrass festival promoter. He asked
Mike and I to play at the Red Mile Bluegrass Festival
for him and he actually paid us. That was our first job
together. When we came off stage and went to our
seats with our wives to watch Tony Rice,--the guy next
to my-w4e-askeherifstTe-sdw those two morons that
was up there a minute ago, meaning us. That is when
the (Moron Brothers) was born. His name was Mike
and my name was Mike, so Lardo and Burley was
invented to separate the two Mike's. We both are
fortunate to come from strong, hard working, religious
families from the heart of the bluegrass. Our wives
travel with us 'and sell tapes, CD's and T-shirts.
Without their support and work, we couldn't and
wouldn't do it. Mainly because we're still mostly doing
it for fun. We both love to write songs, play music and
most of all get a reaction from the crowd. We feel that
there is enough sickness, sadness and grief in the
world today and the good Lord means for people to
have good, clean fun and laughter. Maybe that is the
job he chose us to do. We hope so, cause it is fun for
us also.

Public service
vs. limitations
Dear Editor:
On Thursday, Jan. 15, the
Starke Fire Department, led
by Chief Rowe, and the
-Volunteer Fire Department, led
by Chief McCarthy showed
one of the most rapid and
cooperative efforts in response
to an alarm at my residence on
_. *W N Y_7 S T ke- The
result: the smoke was
extinguished without damage
to our residence.
I observed that once the
alarm was "set off" due to an
engulfmefit of smoke, both fire
trucks, along with other city
reinforcements and county
volunteers, acted within
minutes. The intervention of
both departments showed a
genuine concern for public
safety, rather than boundary
concern.
Once the Starke Fire
Department acknowledged the
Heilbron Fire Department
commencing inquiry of the
situation, at their arrival,
authority was passed to the
Heilbron Fire Department
from the Starke City Fire
Department. This was
conducted in a smooth and
professional manner.
If this is any indication of
what the county and city will
provide in the future, I applaud
the leaders at both the county
and city for working in .a
"spirit of unity." The expertise
of professionals such as Chief
Rowe and staff and Chief
McCarthy and staff reflects
dedication to their mission as
public officials.
In summation, I believe this
act of public service shows a
local government responsive to
the needs of the people, rather
than political and territorial-

"Lardo Moron"
I was born and raised in a small farming
community in Northern Fayette County called
Loradale Kentucky. My family on both sides grew
tobacco for a living. A lot of songs that I've written
are about my family and friends and stories told
around the country store. We later moved to
Jessamine County where I graduated high school
(believe it or not). While other kids were crazy
about the Rolling Stones, Elvis and Rock and
Roll, my interest seemed to be deep-rooted in
Country and Bluegrass music, with heros such as
Merle Travis, Flat & Scruggs, Osborne Brothers,
JD Crowe and Hank Williams. At the age of 21 I
got a job at the Lexington Fire Department where
I had a lot of time between duties to practice the
banjo and later the fiddle. Along about 1991, on a
warm sumrher evening, I was practicing my banjo
in front of Station #5 when a friend stopped by
with his guitar, Steve Works. Then a neighbor
came by with a bass fiddle and we were jamming
everyday, after that in between duty. The jam
session grew until the pickers and audience
sometimes were more than we had room for. One
night, somewhere about 1995, a shy guitar picker
came with his brother, also from Nicholasville, to
the jam session. He finally got his guitar out when
the crowd thinned down and immediately
everyone realized this guy had something to offer.
A special friendship soon developed between us
and today we're closer than friends, we're
brothers, Moron Brothers that is.

Resident upset
how firefighters
are treated
Dear Editor:
My husband and I have been
living in Bradford County for
10 years and I love it here.
I was absolutely shocked to
read about the Starke
Firefighters' plight in the Jan.
29 issue of the Bradford
County Telegraph (Firefighters
denied meeting by Starke
leaders). I had no idea how
terribly underpaid the Starke
Firefighters are. I think it is an
absolute shame that the


Firefighters earn meager pay:
and yet their job requires them;
to put their lives on the line. Ii
don't know the convolutions of"
'politics here but it seems to me
that all the officials involved inr,
the issue should rearrange-their'
priorities.
Firefighters should not need
a second job to supplement
their income. When they
respond to a call, they should
be alert not sleepy or tired
from their second job. They
are expected to do their best
because less than that could
mean a life lost. To me,
undermining the firefighters is
undermining safety of the
community.
Mrs. Fe Ripka

Upon books the collective
education of the race ]
depends; they are the sole
instruments of registering, ,
perpetuating and
transmitting thought.

Card of Thanks
We cannot find words to
adequately express the thanks
and appreciation for the
genuine acts of friendship,

received last week due to the
loss of our son Tyler.
The love shown us truly
exemplifies the best of life in a

Our loss was extremely heavy
on our hearts but your prayers,

possible for us to bear our
grief in a Christian manner.
We want each of you to know
we truly thank you and only
wish we could find words that

Three Keystone Heights
residents, including a father,
his son and the son's friend,
were arrested Feb. 2 by Clay
County Sheriffs Office
Deputy R.E. Kitties in relation
to the burglary of an Oak Leaf
Road home in Keystone
Heights.
According to the arrest
report, the owner of the
residence had a hunting
camera set up in his yard. The
camera took photographs of
three people entering and
exiting the residence on Jan.
31, at the time the theft
occurred.
The photographs led
deputies to arrest Walter
Woodrow Watts, 37, his son,
Walter Derek Watts, 19, and
the son's friend, Sean Anthony
Castell, 17, all of Keystone
Heights.
Stolen items included two
firearms and a camcorder.

Temper flares

over eviction
Sean Matthew Wells, 19, of
Melrose was arrested 'Jan. 27
by Clay County Sheriffs
Office Deputy C.D. Hickey for
display of a deadly weapon
without intent to kill.
According to the arrest
report, the owners of the
residence Wells lives in had
gone to the residence to do a
walk-through and discuss the
possibility of Wells and his
wife being evicted.
Wells allegedly got a
handgun-style pellet gun-
which appeared to the victims
to be a real handgun-from
underneath the living room
couch and made threatening


comments while holding the
weapon at his side, pointed at
the floor.
The landowners went out on
the porch to call authorities
and Wells walked out to meet
them and allegedly raised the
weapon as if he was going to
fire it.
When deputies responded to
the call, they were given
consent to search the residence
and reported finding the pellet
gun hidden in a laundry basket.
Wells had left the residence
before deputies arrived, but he
called law enforcement
officials while the deputies
were there and arranged to
surrender to them.
Deputy Hickey noted in his
report that he had been called
to the same residence earlier
the same evening in relation to
another incident where shots
were fired and a shotgun was
confiscated.

The finalized district is now
composed of Union, Bradford,
Fort White, FSU High, Taylor
County and East Gadsden,
which moved down from Class
2A. Madison County moved
up to 2A', while Dixie moved
down to IA.
"I'm happy now," Bradford
head coach Steve Hoard said.
"It changed three times."
Bradford had been originally
assigned to District 3 in 2B,
which was composed of
Baldwin, Bishop Snyder,
Bolles, Episcopal,- Fernandina
Beach and Yulee. Hoard was
not happy that his team was
still in a district with Bolles,
but liked the district overall,
saying that it was composed of
teams Bradford could compete
with.
However, the FHSAA later
expanded that 'district to 10
teams, adding Interlachen,
University Christian and West
Nassau. Hoard said Bradford
would have taken a serious hit
in revenue with that district.
The district contained four
private schools, which
generally do not bring huge
crowds to away games. Plus;
the public schools in the
district do not traditionally
bring a lot of people with them.
as well to away games, Hoard
said.
Also, with nine district
opponents, Bradford had just


Uq


one game it could schedule
outside of the district. That
meant losing out on revenue
by not being able to schedule
games against all three of its
neighboring rivals: Baker
County, Keystone Heights and
Union.
During this time of budget
cuts, it was not an ideal
situation, Hoard said.
Daniel Davis, Bradford's
athletic director, sent a letter to
the FHSAA appealing the new
assignment. Later, he and
Principal Lisa Graham met
with FHSAA representatives
to present their case.
Though the now-finalized

What's better than one

Two conference
championships.
The Bradford Middle School
boys' and girls' basketball
teams each finished the year as
Suwannee Middle School
Athletic Conference
champions. Each team
compiled an 11-2 record and
defeated Chiefland to claim
their trophies.

Sign-ups

under way for

Starke Rec.

Dept. baseball

and softball
The Starke Recreation
Department is currently
accepting registrations for its
spring Babe Ruth baseball and
softball programs. Sign-ups
continue through Friday, Feb.
13.
In baseball, there are six
leagues for the following age
groups, with April 30 as the
age-determining date: 4-6 (T-
ball), 7-8 (rookie), 9-10


assignment does involve
having to travel to the
Tallahassee area multiple
times, Bradford gets to play
Union in a regular-season
contest, which it has not done
in quite a while (the two teams
have played in the preseason
the past couple of years), and
still be able to schedule games
against Baker County and
Keystone.
The school should be able to
take in a lot of money at the
gate with home games against
Baker, Keystone and Union.
"Financially, it really gave a
shot in the arm to our school
and our athletic program,"


(minor), 11-12 (major), 13-15
(Babe Ruth senior) and 16-18
(Babe Ruth). Children 8 or 10
may play in the next league up
they have exceptional skills
and parents sign a waiver.
Softball has five leagues for
the following age groups, with
Dec. 3-1, 2008, as the
determining date: 6-8 (8U), 9-
10 (10U), 11-12 (12U), 13-14
(14U) and 15-16 (16U).
Children may play in the next
league up if they have
exceptional skills and parents
sign a waiver.

please call the Starke
Recreation Department at

Hoard said, noting that the
other sports at the school
depend upon revenue
generated at football games.
Keystone Heights' district
also has a bit of a different
look than the one that was
originally proposed. The
Indians had been placed in
District 4 in Class 2B with
Interlachen, Mount Dora,
Newberry, Trinity Catholic,
Umatilla, the Villages and
Williston. The Villages has
since been moved down to
Class IA, while Interlachen
was assigned to another district
within 2B, leaving Keystone in
a six-team district.

Several Guardsmen
say equipment not
beneficial

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It's no surprise in today's
world to find a marriage
between the military and
technology, but technology
employed during recent
training undertaken by the
Wisconsin National Guard unit
at the Camp Blanding Joint
Training Center had its
detractors.
The 32nd Infantry Brigade
Combat Team, preparing for
deployment to Iraq, spent three
weeks in Florida training at
Camp Blanding. Part of that
training incorporated
participating in Exportable
Combat Training Exercises
that created four types of basic
scenarios: entering and'
clearing a building, convoy
operations, reconnaissance and
traffic-control points.
In conjunction with that,


Guardsmen wore enhanced
dismount instrumentation
(EDI) on their backs as part of
the FlexTrain system-GPS-
based military training
developed by SRI
International, a nonprofit
organization. The purpose of
the instrumentation, used in
conjunction with video footage
recorded during the training by
Allied Container-Systems Inc.
personnel, was to help Guard
leaders assess training
performance and see what
went right and what: went
wrong.
EDI devices, which were
also installed 6n vehicles,
recorded Guardsmen's
movements, down to
individual soldiers. That data
was observed in real time at
tactical analysis facilities and
later viewed by Guardsmen
during after-action* review
sessions. The EDI footage was
synchronized with video
footage, with both being
shown simultaneously during
after-action review sessions.

his actions being recorded on video for an after-action review.


Several soldiers agreed that
the video footage was useful,
but they were not impressed
with the EDI.
"It would take a lot of work
to find someone on this base
with a positive spin on the
EDI," Sgt. Philip Taylor said.
"Unless they outrank me,"
Capt. Daniel Peterson quickly
added.
That may very well be the
case. While SRI personnel
stood by their technology and
the benefits they propose it has
for training Guard members,
they admitted there were some
issues to be addressed.

Guardsmen;

Camp Blanding.


Kipp Peppel, program
manager for SRI, said if the
data collected by the electronic
instrumentation, as it is
currently set up, is usually
viewed by only battalion and
company leaders during after-
action review sessions.
Therefore, if you ask a
Guardsman of a higher rank,
you would probably get a
different answer as to the
effectiveness of the equipment,
Peppel said.


Peppel admitted a system
needs to be devised that would--
allow everyone to access the
electronic data.
"Everything's been
(focused) on the leaders
,because they want to make
sure the guys in charge are the
best trained possible," Peppel
said, "but that doesn't mean
everybody down to the ground
level shouldn't also get the

Clay County
issues $71
million in
bonds for
road projects
The pre-closing execution of
documents on $71 million in
Infrastructure Sales Surtax
Revenue Bonds, Series 2009
was held on Jan. 29 the Clay
County Administration
Building in preparation of
today's bond closing.
The bonds will be used to
finance three major road
construction projects which
will be built over the next four
years. The bond issue includes
$14 million to widen Old
Jennings Road to four lanes;
$11.1 million to widen 'C.R.
209 to four lanes from C.R.
220 to Henley Road and $44.6
million to widen Henley Road
to four lanes from C.R. 209 to
C.R. 218.
Authorization to proceed
with a bond issue was
originally approved by the
Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) in fall
of 2008. At the same time,
the bond market began to
weaken and interest rates
began to rise. The BCC
delegatejd the authority to. the
county mariager to close the
deal when he felt it was
prudent. With improvements
in the bond market, the county
manager determined to market
the bonds on Jan. 15. The
resulting interest rate of 3.2
percent, as compared to the
rates in place when the BCC
approved the bonds, will save
Clay County $9.5 million in
interest payments over the life
of the bond issue.
"I am very. proud of the
decisions of the Board of
Commissioners," stated
Wendell D. Davis, 2009
chairman.

BHS wrestlers wrap up regular season, prepare for districts


I\ CI\ FF SMIELLEY
Telegriaph Staff Writer
The Bradford wrestling team
took some lumps at a
tohrnamcnt at Buchholz High
School in Gainesville to cap
the regular season, but the
Tornadoes had several bright
spots at season's end as they
prepare for this weekend's
district tournament at Wakulla
High School.
Bradford (22-10) went 2-3 in
the Buchholz tournament,
which was held this past
weekend. Casey Hines, who is
currently ranked second in the
state in the 215-pound class,
remained undefeated, going 5-
0.
"He didn't have anybody
really challenge him,"
Bradford head coach Joe Van
Vactor said.
Fellow senior teammate


Billy Brooks, \'ho, like Hines.
has more than 100 career wins,
went undefeated in the
tournament as well. Brooks,
who wrestles in the 140-pound
class, claimed his second win
of the year over Bryan
Wainwright of Suwannee.
Van Vactor said that was a
good win for Brooks. In the
earlier matchup between the
two, Brooks pulled the match
out at the last second with a
takedown. This time around,
Brooks pinned Wainwright in
the second period.
It's a good sign entering the
district tournament, Van
Vactor said. Brooks is
attempting to win his third
straight district championship.
"He's doing the right things
at the right time," Van Vactor
said.
Brooks is ranked eighth in


the state but lhat \was before
he beat the wrestler ranked
ahead of him in convincing
fashion at a tournament at
Terry Parker High School Jan.
24.
It was a good tournament
overall for the Tornadoes, who
went 6-1 and placed fifth. One
of the key wins, according to
Van Vactor, was against
Mandarin, which was once a
wrestling power in north
Florida. Bradford trailed
Mandarin 37-34 when
freshman Devin Paulk stepped
onto the mat. Paulk was forced
onto his back, but was able to
escape. He trailed 5-1, but
responded with a takedown
and a nearside cradle.
Those maneuvers left Paulk
trailing by two, but the
freshman pinned his opponent,
giving himself and his team
the win.
"When the ref signaled the
pin, the whole team was
ecstatic," Van Vactor said.
The tournament was where
Hines won his 100"' career
match. That occurred late in
the first period against a
wrestler from Yulee.
Bradford followed that


ker County opponent.
finished the, match off by
pinning his opponent.
Hines and Brooks were
honored prior to the match. It
was senior night, so the two
were recognized along with
fellow seniors Ben Wentz and
Logan Johnson.


Casey Hines (top) had little trouble with his opponent
from Baker County.
