No one


injured in



RMC fire


There were no injuries in the
fire that broke out in a small
portable building located at
Reception and Medical Center
in Lake Butlpr on Feb. 9.
The small building was ruled
a total loss and approximately
half of the thousands of x-
rays stored there were likely
damaged or destroyed. The
x-rays were part of medical
records for thousands of
inmates in Florida Department
of Corrections facilities in
north Florida.
According to a report by the
Gainesville Sun's Karen Voyles,
DOC's Region II Director Mark
Redd stated the fire may have
been the result of an electrical
malfunction.
The facility went into a state
of lock-down for several hours
after the fire was reported at
approxiamtely 2 p.m. Lock-
down is normal procedure for


any correctional facility in an
emergency situation.
The portable building was a
14-by-30-foot building located
near RMC's hospital. It was
used for storage.
DOC spokeswoman Gretl
Plessinger said that inmates
do not normally go into the
building and the one staff
member assigned to work there
was not there when the fire
broke out.
The Union County Fire
Department responded and
extinguished the blaze.
RMC Warden Timothy
Cannon said, "I'd like to thank
Union County and Lake Butler
fire departments as well as our
staff for their quick response
and professionalism in handling
Monday's fire. While the small
building was a total loss, we are
thankful no one was injured."

8 arrested in Bradford County drug sweep


The Bradford County
Sheriff's Office and the Starke
Police Department conducted a
joint drug sweep on Feb. 6 in
locations on the north and south
ends of Bradford County.
Eight arrests resulted from
the effort, dubbed "Operation
Cooperation."
According to a press release
furnished by BCSO,the targeted
areas have had a chronic drug
and crime problem for several
years.


Arrested were:
Joshua Harvey Hutchinson,
21, of Gainesville who was
charged with possession of
cocaine with intent to sell..
Officers allegedly observed
Hutchinson selling cocaine to
several individuals who drove
up to a location on Southeast
38th Avenue. Hutchinson
allegedly met the vehicles on
the side of the road and sold the
drivers crack.
As Hutchinson left the area,


officers, stopped his vehicle. A
search revealed a pill bottle
containing 0.2 grams of crack
cocaine and $660 in cash. The
cocaine was concealed in a
diaper, bag in the vehicle. The
report. stated Hutchinson had
been seen retrieving crack from
a pill bottle during the sales
witnessed by officers.
-Additional charges of driving
while license was suspended or
.revoked and attaching a tag not
assigned to the .vehicle were


added to those Hutchinson
faces.
Total bond was set at $52,000
and he remained in jail as of
press time.
Rosa Ann Robinson, 44,
of Keystone Heights, was
charged with possession of
prescription medication without
a prescription. She allegedly
had 38 pills, later identified
as muscle relaxers, in her
coat pocket. Bond was set at
$15,000 and she remained in


jail as of press time.
Clyde Byrd III, 19, of
Keystone Heights, was. also
charged with possession
of prescription medication
without a prescription, but had
an added charge of possession
of cocaine. Byrd allegedly had
a pill bottle containing cocaine
and two pills for which he had
no prescription. Byrd also had
an outstanding warrant for his
arrest from another county:

LB moves forward with curfew, WS mulls similar rule


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer


Commissioners for the city
of Lake Butler unanimously
voted 'to move forward with
,plans to adopt an ordinance
mandating a citywide curfew
for minor children.
In a draft ordinance reviewed
at the last public meeting on
Feb. 9, commissioners agreed
to the drafted ordinance, with


only a few minor changes. With
the changes, the ordinance will
be on next month's agenda for
the first of two public readings
before it can, be officially
adopted by the city.
The language in the drafted
ordinance includes that it shall
be unlawful for any minor to
remain idle, wander, stroll
or play in any public place
either on foot or to cruise about
without a set destination in any
vehicle in or upon any public


place in the city between the
hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.,
Sunday through Thursday, with
the exception of legal holidays,
and between the hours of 12
a.m. and 6 a.m., Friday through
Saturday, unless accompanied
by a parent, guardian or other
adult person having custody or
control of such minor.
Another exception to the.
ordinance would include if
the minor is on an emergency
errand or specific business or


activity directed or permitted
by his or her parent or guardian,
or where the presence of such
minor is connected with or
required by some legitimate
and lawful .employment, trade,
profession or occupation. ,
The city defines a minor
. as those under the age of 18
and defines a public place to
generally mean any street,
alley, highway, sidewalk, park,
playground or place in which
the general public has access


and a right to resort for business,
entertainment or other lawful
purpose. In specific, such
public places include any store,
shop, restaurant, tavern, cafe,
drug store, poolroom, shopping
center or any Other place within
the city limits. It shall also
include the front or immediate
area of such a public place.

New faces in service to county commission, clerk of courts


BY TERESA STONE'
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer


A few changes have recently
taken place between the offices
of the Union County Board of
County Commissioners and the
clerk of the court.
Beginning in March, the
county will have a new attorney
to represent its interests. The
board felt it could best be


served by local attorney, Russ
Wade, rather than continue
with attorney Hal Airth, the
board's attorney since 2001,
who resides and holds a private
practice in Live Oak.
Besides the obvious
conveniences the change
provides, Board Chairman
Karen Cossey summed up the
decision by saying, "We want
to keep the county money in
the county."


Wade, 33, was raised in
Union County, and graduated
as valedictorian with the
Union County High School
class of 1993. He attended the
University of Florida, obtained
his business degree, then began
pursuing medical school.
"After getting into that, I
decided it wasn't for me," Wade
said. "I actually hated it as it


wasn't something
that came natural
to me."

Firefighters offered deal at

crowded commission meeting


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Family and friends of Starke
firefighters turned up at the most
recent city commission meeting
to support the union, which
was recently denied a face-to-
face negotiating session by -the
commissioners.
While commissioners spoke
relatively briefly, except to
reaffirm their appreciation for
their fire department, their
attorney, Terry Brown, mounted
a defense of the city by pointing
out that the firefighters aren't as
underpaid as some might think.
Among the supporters of the
fire department was Clay County
firefighter Harry Hatcher, a
Starke resident, who said he
couldn't understand why the two
sides couldn't meet if the attorney
said it would not be illegal to do
so.
Starke's former fire chief,
Dwayne Hardy, said a lot of good
young men and women have been
lost to other departments over the
years, but said those who stay do
so out of a sense of obligation to
their community. The experience
they gain over they years helps
save lives and he pointed out a
price can't be put on that.
Hardy said when he worked
for the city, the city commission
"workshopped things to death,"
so he asked why the board
wouldn't sit down with the fire
department. It was a question
that was never, answered. He
criticized the board for not being
proactive, saying if it had been,
outstanding matters would have
been settled by now.
"Adversarial relationships are
not going to get us anywhere,"
Hardy said. ''
He said he didn't believe
in management by crisis and
wanted commissioners to stand
up and lead the city. i
Brown said in the current
economy when there is a hiring
freeze in effect and spending cuts
being made in other departments,
anyone who approaches
the commission for a 20-30
percent raise immediately loses
credibility. Do firefighters need
the money, he asked. Probably,


he said, but they are no more
entitled to it than police officers,
line crewmen or others who risk
their lives in their work for the
city.
Commissioners said they
cared about the firefighters, but
lack of money was the problem.
Commissioner Travis Woods, for
example, said the city has shown
its support by establishing the
new fire station and purchasing a
traffic control system to get fire
trucks safely onto the highway.
As for the discrepancy in
starting salaries for firefighters
versus other city employees,
Brown argued that it would have
been an unfair labor practice
for the city to raise the starting
salary for firefighters without
renegotiating the existing
contract. (Firefighters have,
however, been given the cost
of living raises of 2-3 percent
annually granted to other
employees without renegotiating
the contract.)
When Linda Wise, former
city clerk and mother of
firefighter Gary Wise, asked if
the commission had approved of
employees in other departments
being hired at a higher hourly
rated, she was told the operations
manager (or other department
heads) had'discretion in setting
starting salaries for non-union
employees.
Brown said the starting salary
of $8 an hour was too low, and
no one would debate that, but
he added another approach is
to look at what an individual
takes home annually. That would
include overtime, safety pay, etc.
,Brown selected a firefighter who
has been with the city several
years an example. While that
.firefighters makes less than $14
an hour, less than some were
making when hired by the police
department, his W-2 shows he
took home more than $46,800.
Brown. said that's more than
anyone in -the 'police department
except for the chief.
Adding annual benefits
such as health coverage and
retirement contributions, Brown
said this employee alone cost
the city nearly $72,000.' Had
the city consented to the union'sn


initial request, Brown said that
firefighter would be making an
additional 20 percent on top of
that.
Brown also said the shift
arrangement-working 24 hours,
and then being off 48 hours-
allowed firefighters to take on
second jobs, sometimes with
other fire departments. So, he
said,even those making a starting
salary of $8 an hour are making
more than it would seem.
Firefighter Lt. Gary Wise
admitted the attorney had been
talking about his earnings. Wise
was one of several firefighters
who spoke out after the city
commission refused to meet with
union members.
He made no apologies for what
he earned and countered Brown's
numbers with some of his own.
If annual salaries tptal more than
other city employees, it's because
firefighters put in hundreds
of more hours each year, not
including scheduled overtime, he
said. Discussing the additional
overtime-some 226 hours-
that elevated his earnings, Wise
said he earns his pay working
holidays and emergencies when
other employees are home with
their families.
He said firefighters aren't
getting a fair shake for the hours
they put in, and as for benefits,
other employees are receiving
benefits on top of their salaries
as well.
Brown said if firefighters gave
up the current shift arrangement,
the city could afford to pay them a
higher hourly rate. In fact, he said
if the union consents to eight-hour
shifts five days a week like those
worked by correctional officers,
the city could then afford to give
them a $4 across-the-board raise,
something no one else in the city
is being offered.
Trading a higher hourly rate
for fewer hours didn't initially
seem to sit well with Wise, so it
remains to be seen whether or
not the union will take the city's
latest offer.
Both sides did agree, however,
that, while times are tough,
they aremnot-at-an -impasse and

No new cases of salmonella reported in BC


One unlucky Bradford
County resident became the
first Floridian to be struck with
illness following consumption
of a product contaminated with
salmonella bacteria.
The illness was believed to be
related- to nationwide outbreak
due to the consumption of tainted
peanut products.
As of Tuesday, no additional.
cases had been reported in the
county, according to Susan.
Smith of the Florida Department
of Health.
Smith could not release details
on the individual case, although
it has been reported that the
sick individual was treated and
released from the hospital.
More than 550 people have
become sick in 44 states during
the salmonella outbreak. Eight
people have died from the
infection, whose- symptoms
include severe cramps, fever,
stomachache and vomiting.
Symptoms typically subside
within a week, although it's
important that all suspected


cases be reported. According to
the Centers for Diease Control
and Prevention, for every case
of salmonella reported, many
more go unreported, but it is only
through diagnosis and taking
samples that the outbreak can be
tracked.
iAccordingtothe Food and Drug
Administration, peanut butter
and peanut paste produced by the
Peanut Corporation of America at
its Blakely, Ga., processing plant
are to blame for the illnesses.
Neither product was sold directly
to consumers. However, through
its investigation, FDA has
determined that PCA distributed
potentially contaminated product
to more than 100 consignee
firms, for use as an ingredient in
hundreds of different products,
such as cookies, crackers, cereal,
candy and ice cream.
Recalls on hundreds of
products have been issued.
If you have a question about
Whether a product you purchased
has been recalled, visit www.fda.
gov online. There you can enter


the product's UPC code to see
if it is one of the products in the
database.
More information on
salmonella and the outbreak is
also available from FDA.

Policy being crafted for building permit extensions


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Interest in ways to jurnpstart
development and the local
economy led to some conflict
among county commissioners
who couldn't see eye-to-eye
about creating a policy to forgive
expired building permits.
Commissioner Eddie Lewis,
who proposed a moratorium
on impact fees, also wants
the policy of the building and
zoning office changed to offer
automatic extensions granted to
builders or individuals who have
pulled permits but not completed
construction of the permitted
project within the specified six-
month time limit.
Building permits can be
costly and having to pay a
second fee might discourage the
completion of projects that have
already begun but had to stop for
economic or other reasons.
Attorney Terry Brown said
the code gives the building
office great latitude in granting
extensions, but the county needs


to treat applicants consistently
and recommended that be put in
writing.
A uniform policy was
proposed that would direct staff
to be liberal when approached
for an extension to allow people
to complete construction of a
project without having to pay an
additional permit fee.
Zoning Director Nora
Thompson said the office
normally grants one building
permit extension after the six-
month deadline, which gives
builders one year between
inspections.
"We've never voided
somebody's permit that didn't
give an inspection in six months,"
Thompson said. While the six-
month deadline is printed on the
permit, all an individual has to
do is call and ask for an-extension
and it is granted, Thompson
said.
Commissioner John Wayne
Hersey didn't agree with
establishing a policy to satisfy
one or a few individuals because
they fail to pick up the phone.


Lewis said times are hard and
it's difficult just to get building
materials. Hersey said that might
be true, but asked how hard it
was to call the building office
and explain your problem.
"I don't think you're going to
find anyone has been thrown to
the wolves," Hersey said.
Building Director Wilson
Whidden defended the current
code, which is the code the board
adopted and which allows for two
extensions. He said people are
struggling and they will likely
be given as many extensions as
needed to complete their homes.
Ross Chandler said it sounded
like ample time was being given.
According to Brown, eliminating
the need to pAy another building
permit fee might, be a way to get
people back to work on buildings
that have already been started.
Commissioner
Brown said sometimes
common sense things-need to be
put into writing, and Chairman
Doyle Thomas said a written
policy would let people to know
the guidelines and keep them


from falling between the cracks.
Thompson asked if the policy
would be retroactive to cover
permits that have already expired
and become void, and Thomas
said he understood the policy
would cover expired permits.
Chandler said he was willing to
go back a year, but Hersey didn't
want it to apply any earlier than
the effective date of the policy
they were talking about setting.
At the meeting, Thompson
couldn't say off the top of her head
how many voided permits might
have to be made active again if
the new policy automatically
extended the timeline for those
projects as well. One permit was
recently reissued for a house
William Dodd is building in
Starke. The original permit was
issued in July 2007, but had
expired. Dodd paid the $386 to
re-permit construction, but a
letter accompanying the permit
from Starke Operations Manager
Ricky Thompson exempted
Dodd from paying the city's
$3,080 total impact fee.
A number of permits


were pulled by builders for
prospective prior to the effective
date of impact fees in 2007, but
according to the building office,
those people knew that if their
permits expired, they would not
only have to pay the permit fee
again to get the projects started,
but the impact fees as well.
As the city's administrator,
Thompson indicated he was
using his discretion to honor the
agreement that those permits
pulled prior to August 2007
would be exempt from impact
fees. He said Dodd's new permit
qualified even though the original
had expired.
County Manager Brad Carter
explained the point of putting
a written policy in place was to
make the extensions automatic,
removing staff discretion and
making the extensions a matter
of board policy. 1
The board voted to approve
the liberal interpretation of code
by the building office regarding
permitextensions and directed the
department and county manager
to turn that interpretation into a


formal written policy that- will
then come back to the county
commission for final approval.
Hersey and Chandler supported
the motion since it the policy will
come back to the board prior to
approval..
Whether the policy will apply
to already expired permits
remains to be seen.
Advertising for the ordinance
to suspend county impact fees
has taken place. The county
commission is set to vote on the
ordinance Feb. 19.
Dodd's waiveraside,Thompson
said -the city commission is
not currently set to consider a
moratorium of its impact fees,
which amount to $3,080 per
single-family home compared to
the county's $550.
The county attorney said he has
also been asked.about imposing
a moratorium on ad valorem
taxes for property improvements
to encourage construction,
although it was pointed out that
property tax collection doesn't
apply until after construction of
improvements is complete.


County, Keystone pass airpark agreement


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The Bradford County
Commission and the city of
Keystone Heights have finally
signed an interlocal agreement,
which will move forward the
commercial rezoning of property
at the city's airpark and the
construction of a new access
road.
Keystone signedthe document
last month.
The agreement primarily
addresses the process for
rezoning airpark property, since
that-has been an issue in the past,
and commits both parties to.
communication.
IL. also attempts to put
protections in place from
developments that could impact
the airport. Likewise, the county


is to be informed about airport
operations that affect the county.
County Manager Brad .Carter
said passage of the interlocal
agreement would clear the way,
for the county to begin meeting
with airpark representatives
to discuss a time frame for the
construction of a new access road
to what both boards hope will
become a new industrial park for
the county.
The road will open up
landlocked parcels for industrial
development. It is .one of four
projects related to improvements
at the ai rpark that has been granted
state funding. The available funds
will pay for materials like lime
rock and asphalt, but the airpark
wants the county's assistance in
constructing the road's base and
paving the road using in-house
labor and equipment.


Asengineeredandsurveyed,the
nearly mile-long road would run
from S.R. 100 along the northeast
boundary of the airpark to the
European Rally Driving School,
opening up approximately 375
acres of land for development.
While the airpark spans two
counties, the project area is
entirely in Bradford County.
Once the land is leased to
commercial or industrial tenants,
it will go on the tax rolls and
generate. revenue for the county,
not to mention jobs.
The airpark's Bob Canady
said it won't be a big project and
can likely be completed in three
weeks.
A signed interlocal agreement

can finally consider the airpark's

Contractor promises to use


local vendors in cleanup


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Starke City Commission
has agreed to let Advanced
Environmental Technologies,
a Georgia Company with
offices in Florida, complete the
environmental cleanup at the site
of the old city power plant.
AET once had the contract but
lost it to a company that, at least
at the time, the city considered
more local. As part of its pitch
to get the contract back, AET
President Chad Gunter told
the city commission he would
hire local companies to provide
materials and labor.
The commission was attracted
to the idea of keeping the money
local.
"That's money coming directly
from the taxpayers all in the state
of Florida coming directly into
your economy. You might as well
spend it locally and put people to
work here," Gunter said.
Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner revived poor memories
of AET's prior performance.
These were mostly -set aside,
however, as the commission
took action to award AET the
contract. Gunter explained
perceived inaction years ago was
due to the company's difficulty
in convincing the state that the
contaminated soil needed to be
dug and removed from the site.
Because of the nature of the
project, the city can change
contractors at will. The contractor
chosen to lead the cleanup then
works with the state, submitting
proposals getting approval
for the work that needs to be
performed.
It is a process that has taken
years, although progress has been
made. Some. contamination has
been removed and the building
has been demolished.
AET's work will include
completing removal of the
contamination, then restoring the
site, including replacement of the
concrete foundation that is being
destroyed.
AET is familiar with the


project and actually completed a
site assessment and remediation
plan prior to losing the contract to
FORTIS Environmental Group.
The site has diesel
contamination dating back to the
operation of the power plant to
generate electricity for the city.
The cleanup is being paid for by
the state through the Department
of Environmental Protections
Early Detection Incentive
program.
The total remainder of the
project is estimated to cost $1.2
million. Once the work order is
received from DEP, the estimated
time to complete the project is
four weeks. Two crews will work
seven days a week to get the work
done once and for all.
Gunter, a former Starke
resident, said as soon as AET
was awarded the contract, it
would begin initiating an action


plan to complete the cleanup and -
site rehabilitation.
According to Gunter, this
should mean work for local

Area black

history

events

held
BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
A number of events in
the tri-counties highlighted
black history month last
week, among them a Santa
Fe College gala in Starke
which featured former
Paterson New Jersey
High School Principal Joe
Clark.
The Bellamy Road
Gallery in Melrose
featured a documentary
film on black writer and
Florida native Zora Neal
Hurston. The gallery also
mounted an exhibit of
artworks by painter Ernest
Lee, which is on-going,
and a welcomed showing
of six works by some of
the 20th-century painting
group now referred
to collectively as the
Highwaymen.
Combined, the three
occasions highlighted
local and national African-
American art, culture
and history, brought that
history's richness and
variety to the forefront and
made it sparkle.


Famedi

BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
In 1982-now more than a
quarter of a century ago-Joe
Clark became principal of the
Paterson New Jersey High
School.
The institution he faced
when he walked in the
door was part hellhole, part
prison and part high school.
The student population of
3,200 was composed largely
of African-Americans and
Hispanics, nearly one-third
of whose families were on
welfare. Students and faculty
traded drugs on the school
grounds; the smell of pot
in the hallways was a daily
occurrence. One third of the
teenaged girls were or would
be pregnant before leaving
high school, students and
others wandered the hallways,
violence was routine. Learning
was rare and accidental.
Clark began his career,
first as a drill sergeant and
then as an elementary school
teacher and principal. When
he stepped up to the plate to
become a high school principal
he came armed with a bullhorn
and a baseball bat. And also
with hope, respect, courage
and above all, discipline.
"If you can believe it,
you can conceive it and you


principal
can achieve it," he told his
students, adopting their rap
doggerel with a message.
One day, he expelled 300
students he called "leeches and
parasites." He defied the local
drug lords and ordered their
schoolyard trade shut down,
meeting malingerers with
his Willie Mays Big Stick.
He instituted two-way traffic
patterns, with students ordered
to keep moving on the right
hand side of the hallways
between classes. He banned
hats, gang wear, and racy
clothing. Tardies and absences
earned latrine duty scrubbing
the school toilets. He was as
exacting on the faculty as he
was on the students.
Clark's tough love education
had mixed academic results and
won him immense praise and
condemnation.After he booted
numerous faculty members
for various infractions, small
and large, and expelled more
than 60 students without due
process the school board
decided enough was enough
and called it quits.
Along the way, Clark earned
praise from then Secretary of
Education William Bennett
who said "Sometimes you
need Mr. Chips; sometimes
you need Dirty Harry."
Clark was offered an
advisory position by Ronald
Reagan (he turned it down)


Joe Clark visits Starke


got his picture on the cover
of Time magazine and had his
story turned into a Hollywood
studio movie, "Lean on Me"
with then-relative unknown
Morgan Freeman, who played
Clark.
Since then, Clark has
become a mainstay on the
motivational speaking circuit,
which brought him to Starke
last week.
The event was a fund-
raiser for the SFC's Dollars
for Scholars program, and
featured a dinner, catered
by Western Steer owner and
former Bradford County
School Superintendent Harry
Hatcher:
Among those sitting at tables
in the predominantly white
audience were members of
the Alachua County Brother's
Keepers and Bradford
County's Brothers and Sisters
.Keepers. Those are mentoring
programs in which established
members of the black
community provide guidance
and leadership to younger
black men and women, mostly
students.
SFC President Jackson
Sasser introduced audience
notables, Andrews Center
Director Cheryl Canova and
the Dollars for Scholars board
members among them.
Sasser told the crowd that
the fund-raising goal is $1


million, $200,000 of
which will bring current
scholarships up to
today's funding levels.
The remainder of funds
raised will create 10
new scholarships, to
be dispensed to SFC
students in Bradford
County.
Clark then spoke,
saying almost nothing
about his successes
and tribulations
or the New Jersey
educational system.
His was a speech of
motivational aphorisms,
poetry, sermonettes,
dubious anecdotes,
jokes and above all,
encouragement to excel.
"They only gave me 30
minutes to talk," he said.
"But I only get revved
up after 60 minutes,"
he told the crowd as
he took off his jacket
to show that he meant
business.
His references to tough love
in education struck chords
with members of the crowd,
perhaps because Bradford
County schools have also been
hit recently with a few jolts
from students, faculty and
administration.
At the end of his presentation,
Clark called every young
person in the crowd to the


Former Principal Joe Clark
dais.
"Move expeditiously," he
barked when they hung back.
When the sterling group of
scrubbed and polished youths
had gathered, he made them
repeat after him a commitment
to a life spent striving for
excellence, repeating several
times the refrain from Martin
Luther King's civil rights era,
"I am somebody."

black history, on


One of the more interesting
stories about American artists
is the tale of African American
painters from Fort Pierce, a
group now collectively referred
to as the Highwaymen.
They didn't come to be
called the Highwaymen until
the mid-1990s. The 24 to 29
painters (depending on whom
you ask) painted idealized
Florida landscapes between the
1950s until around the end of
the 1970s. -


Gary Monroe, an art history
instructor at Daytona Beach
College, has written one book
* about -the- Highwaymen as a
group, complete with plates of
their work and another about
Harold Newton, who over time
became one of the group's more
accomplished artists.
Six paintings of palm trees
and Florida surf are on display
at the Bellamy Road Gallery
in Melrose through February.
All six come from Monroe's


display
collection. Taken together,
they illustrate the talents of the
artists and how each interpreted
a common theme.
The group's name comes
from the fact that they sold
their paintings door to door
and frequently out of their
automobiles along back roads
with the paintings sitting on
the dirt, leaning against grills
and tires, open and waiting for
business. If you are of a certain

interested in studying law after
taking a business law class at
UF. He excelled in the class
and his professor even invited
him to tutor students the next
semester. That led to Wade's
invitation to tutor Gator athlete
students through the University
AthleticAssociation, something
he continued until graduating
ahead of schedule in 1999.
After completing lawv
school, Wade received his
environmental and land use law
certificate. He explained that
numerous legal firms use UFlaw
students to conduct extensive
research for cases and he went
to work for one such firm in
Miami for two years doing
sophisticated environmental
law. His employer was, in fact,
one of the firms that handled
the Everglades litigation
involving close to 50 lawsuits
filed in state and federal fora
over water quality issues.
After getting his fill of
Miami, Wade and his wife
Tammy, whom he married
while in law school, moved
back to Lake' Butler while
commuting to Jacksonville and
working for a real estate firm.
Tammy Wade also worked in
Jacksonville, but the 65-mile
one-way commute soon took
its toll and he followed the
advice of a trusted and older
lawyer friend who said, "You
won't be happy until you open
your own practice.".
Wade did just that, opening
Russ Wade, P.A., Attorney at
Law in Lake Butler in 2004.
He started out in the Townsend-
Green building on Main Street,
eventually outgrowing the
space and relocating to now his
third office in the city limits.
Up until his appointment
as attorney for the county,
Wade had served as the Value
Adjustment Board attorney, a
position he had to give up to
serve as county attorney.
Wade said he is really looking
forward to working for the
county, and is honored by their
decision in choosing him.
Serving as board attorney,
however, by no means affects
his private practice located
at 155 SW Sixth Pl. in Lake
Butler. Wade will be available
to the county commissioners as
needed from his law office for
questions and legal direction
just as any other client he
serves.
His appointment requires that
he attend the two regular county
meetings each month along
with any special meetings that
may come about, and advise
the board on any legal actions,
such as county ordinances and
the various aspects of local
governmental law.
"He's a brilliant young man
with reputable credentials,"
Cossey said.
Those credentials include the


areas of business law, estate
planning, wills and trust,
probate, corporate formation,
real estate, evictions, family
law, litigation and personal
injury law. Russ and his wife,
Tammy, who is a pharmacist for
Target in Gainesville, have two
children, Katie and Maggie.

Other new faces
at county offices
A few months ago, the county
commissioners made a decision
to move an employee who was
being shared with the clerk's
office in the position of county
financial assistant as well as
serving as a secretary to the
commissioners.
Michelle Thurman was
originally hired in 2007 to work
in the civil department by Clerk
of the Court Regina Parrish.
As it happened, two
employees who worked at the
county commission office, one
a board secretary and the other
a financial assistant, left around
the same time. It was believed
that one person could do the
jobs of both the board secretary
'and financial assistant, and
Thurman requested the job.
However,, following the
selection of Cossey as chairman
of the board during the county's
re-organizational meeting
last year, it was soon found
that another change would be
needed.
For the first time in a very
'long time, Union County now
has a full-time chairman and
county commissioner holding
regular business hours in the
county' commission office.
Cossey said her open-door
policy with the public quickly
sped up the pace of the office
and she found herself in need
of a full-time secretary to assist
her.
Of her original move to the
county commissioner's office,
Thurman said, "I do appreciate
the confidence that Mrs. Parrish
had in me and I thank her
for giving me the flexibility
to learn and'take on new tasks
within the county offices."
Since Thurman was placed
under the direct supervision
of the county commissioners,
Parrish found herself in need '
of another financial assistant
at the county commissioner
office. She decided upon Kenzie
Jones, who was hired as the
secretary of the road department
and solid waste department
approximately four months
ago. Jones can now be found
working at .the -commissioner
office as a financial clerk
for the solid waste and road
departments. Also working in
the county commissioner office
as a financial assistant is Janet
Glover, who takes care of the
other accounting functions for
the county.

Smith brought up concerns
of nepotism since Jones is
Glover's daughter.

was a perfect fit for the position

training with Glover this week
for her new position.
"The road department has
been very pleased with her
work there and we look forward
to her in her new position at the

Parrish said.
Christa Myers was hired to
replace Jones at the road/solid

b9 responsible for the daily

Second multi-use path opens in Keystone Heights


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Thanks to a federal grant, a
second multi-use path has been
constructed in Keystone
Heights, which had Mayor
Mary Lou Hildreth
proclaiming the path adds to
the city's attraction to people
who are looking for a place to
reside..
The .5.5-mile path, which
traverses along S.R. 21
between Hardee's and the-
entrance to Gold Head Branch
State Park, was officially
opened Feb. 6 with a ribbon-
cutting ceremony on a frigid
morning. Construction of the
$1.4 million project, which
was 100-percent funded by a
U.S. Department of
Transportation Federal
Highway Administration grant,
began June 19, 2008.
"The Department of


Transportation is not just about
building roads'and bridges and
maintaining roads and
bridges," said Gina Busscher,
public information officer for
the Florida Department of
Transportation. "We get
involved in all kinds of
different projects, including
recreational trails."
Hildreth said the path was
originally planned on being
just a sidewalk, but the
Department of Transportation
decided to expand the project.
For that, she is thankful,
because she believes the trail
will get a lot of use.
"I think that the potential
down the road is going to be a
.true benefit to the city of
Keystone Heights and this
whole area," Hildreth said.
Hildreth cited information
she obtained from the National
Association of Home Builders


and the Visit Florida Web site
in stating the importance of
such a path. She said
information on places to
bicycle is the most requested
information of the Florida Web
site, with more than 90,000
copies of the state's bike trails
guide being downloaded since
January 2008. The National
Home Builders Association


lists trails as the number-one
amenity people are looking for
in an area to live.
"They beat out golf courses.
They beat out swimming
pools," Hildreth said.
Clay County commissioner
Doug Conkey concurred,
saying a joint venture with the
county's chamber of
commerce revealed that


recreational opportunities are
what people look for when
relocating. People want to
know what a community offers
their families.
"It's a great enhancement to
the county's quality of life,"
Conkey said.
Hildreth added such a path is
a benefit to those who already
live in Keystone, considering


these tough economic times.
"A lot of people are going to
stay closer to home," Hildreth
said. "They're going to be
looking at things they can do
as a family and not travel."
Jason Cutshaw, Gold Head
Branch State Park manager,
said the park has received

Portable building


at RMC burns


There were no injuries in the
fire that broke out in a small
portable building located at
Reception and Medical Center
miLake Butler on Feb. 9.
.-The small building was
rited a total loss and
Approximatley half of the
thousands of x-rays stored
there were likely damaged or
destroyed. The x-rays were
pait of medical records for
thousands of inmates in
Florida Department of
Corrections facilities in north
Elirida.
-According to a report by the
Gainesville Sun's Karen
Voyles, DOC's Region II
Director Mark Redd stated the
fire may have been the result
of an electrical malfunction.
The facility went into a state
of lock-down for several hours
after the fire was reported at
approxiamtely 2 p.m. Lock-
down is normal procedure for


any correctional facility in an
emergency situation.
The portable building was a
14-by-30-foot building located
near RMC's hospital. It was
used for storage.
DOC spokeswoman Gretl
Plessinger said that inmates do
not normally go into the
building and the one staff
member assigned to work there
was not there when the fire
broke out.
The Union County Fire
Department responded and
extinguished the blaze.
RMC Warden Timothy
Cannon said, "I'd like to thank
Union County and Lake Butler
fire departments as well as our
staff for their quick response
and professionalism in
handling Monday's fire. While
the small building was a total
' loss, we are tharfifti no 6"one

Florahome to host

A .4% Iron Horse marathon


The Bradford High School band students selected for Wells, Don Davis, Cherie Perkins, Chelsey Hamby,
the North Florida Honor Band were: (back, I-r) Houston (front, I-r) Jennifer Pharis, Patricia Carney, Rebecca
McClain, Courtney Brown, Marjorie Carney, Kenny Merrill and Rachel Baier. .


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
On Feb 21, approximately
85 ultra-marathoners will
descend on Florahome for the
4th annual Iron Horse 100-
mile endurance race. Ultra-
marathoners not only race for
distance, but rough terrain is
part of their endurance
challenge.
The race will be run on parts
of the' undeveloped Lake
Butler to Palatka Rail Trail, a
part of the Florida Greenways
and Trail system. The race was
first held in 2006 on the
Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail
Trail.
Race Director Chris Rodatz
said he had originally
investigated a Florahome to
Lake Butler race, but found
some undeveloped parts along
the trail either unsafe, like the
Putnam Hall area, or otherwise
impassable.
"The Twin Lakes Park
section in Keystone Heights
would have been. a perfect
place to start," Rodatz said.
For the past two years the


race has been held in Orange
Park but officials recognized
that since it was established as
a Rail Trail run, the Lake
Butler-Palatka unimproved
Rail Trail would be a perfect
venue. In conjunction with the
100-mile event, which runs for
24 hours, there will also be a
50-mile race and a 100K race.
Rodatz, an Orange Park
resident, is a veteran of the
Vermont 100-mile, Old
dominion .100- and the
Western States 100-mile
Endurance Runs, he said last
week.
"Thanks to the support of
the Department of
Environmental Protection,
Office of Greenways and
Trails we are able to showcase
the Florida Rail-Trail system.
The Office of Greenways and
Trails felt that an event of this
type would -be perfect to
showcase not only Putnam
County and Florahome but
also the Lake Butler to Palatka
Trail," said Rodatz.

numerous calls on when the
path was going to be
completed. The path goes hand
in hand with the Florida Park
Service's emphasis on eco-
tourism, Cutshaw said, and he
is excited about the
possibilities the path presents
to Gold Head.
Hildreth said she hopes the
path will increase the number


* of visitors to the park.
"Gold Head Branch State
Park, I think, is a real hidden
gem in Clay County," Hildreth
said. "I know that it is really
under-utilized. I hope this is
g6ing to bring more people out
walking, hiking and biking."
The S.R. 21 path joins
another multi-use path that was
completed in September 2008.
That path, approximately 5
miles long along S.R. 100, is
part of the Rails to Trails
project, which converts old rail


lines into trails. It is a section
of the Palatka-Lake Butler trail
that, when completed, will
cover 45 miles from S.R. 238
in Lake Butler to U.S. 17 in
Palatka.
Hildrcth said having two
such. trails in Keystone can
provide an economic stimulus,
attracting people, as well as
businesses, to the community.
"This is another piece of
what I really think is an
important part for the
Keystone Heights area,"


Hildreth said during the Feb. 6
ceremony.

Concern for
neighbor's
health ignored
Dear Editor:
I called Starke Police
Department last week, asked to
speak to Chief Johnson, who
was not in, and was put
through to Officer Warren. I
voiced my concerns to him
about my neighbor, John
Russell. I had not seen him in
over two weeks. Officer
Warren asked me if I was
smelling anything. I told him
no. He told me to call back
when I did.
Our mail carrier voiced his
concerns to me Saturday about
John. John had not taken his
mail out of the box in over two
weeks. Today (Sunday, Feb. 8)
a neighbor and I were
discussing John. None of us
had seen him in over two
weeks. My neighbor had a
friend visiting him. She said,
"Do not call police, call the
fire department," which I did.
Soon there were six police cars
here, which was overkill. I just
needed a wellness check on
John. One officer went in
through a window. John was
found inside, dead all this
time.
Chief Johnson, you need to
give Officer Warren lessons in
doing well-checks and dealing
with citizens when they call
with concerns. I do not call
law enforcement' just to have
something to do. I (and most.
everyone) really need them
when we call.
Marba Whittle

Note: When questioned
about this incident, Capt. Barry
...Warren-with the .Starke Police
Department stated Tuesday
that SPD officers had checked
on Russell when Mrs. Whittle
had called on a date prior to
the one mentioned in the letter.
Warren said officers were
told by area residents at the
time that Russell thought he
might have active warrants for
his arrest, and would probably
not answer the door. Russell
did not answer at that time, but
oWarren said a neighbor has
Since told officers that he saw
Russell after the date officers
checked on him.
Warren said officers, had
also been told by neighbors
that family members-who
were the property owners-
might be trying to get Russell
to vacate the house and felt
that might be another reason
he would not want to answer
the door.
He said that when Whittle
called on the date mentioned in
the letter, officers were not
aware that Russell's mail had
been piling up, or that
neighbors thought they had
heard a shot fired in the
niehgborhood prior to that
time.
He said no family member,
not even the property owner,
had contacted the police,, so
Officers did not have
permission to enter the home.
He said without permission


and without probable cause to
think .something was wrong,
officers could not force entry
into the building.
He said he mentioned the
possibility of a bad smell as a
circumstance that would
provide officers with probable
cause to enter the residence.

Kudos to our
animal shelter
Dear Editor:
I recently decided to get a
pet. I thought about going to
Gainesville, called, and found
out the procedure for adopting
a pet. I had to complete an
application and wait for it to be
reviewed and then pay $100
for an animal.
I hadn't heard of anywhere
around here that you can adopt
abandoned animals, but at the
last moment, decided to call
our pound. It's listed in the
phone book as Animal Control
under Bradford County. I
talked with a very pleasant,
well-informed employee,
Tracy. The fee for adopting is
only $25. The facility is small,
but clean and the animals are
well cared for.
You sign a paper agreeing to
spay/neuter 'your pet within 30
days and have to verify this. I
was given a brochure for a low
cost organization that comes to
Bradford County every so
often. I even received a
documented history of the
animal since they received it
with helpful notes about the
animal's personality and a
record of any vaccines it had
received. The animal was also
weighed and de-wornmed.
I chose a kitten. It's healthy
and energetic. I'm impressed!
Very little red tape and quality
work. Thanks.

support
Dear Editor:
As we all know, times are
troubling., J eenm .tbta, we
hear 'or'd'red'" iss -b dib and
gloomi *wVtiff burF.sp-iafng
economy and uncertainty of
what's to come. However,


Page 4B


there is an occasional ray'of
light that shines through the
clouds, making us sit back and
realize that not all in this world
is bad.
I have recently seen this first
hand at the O.J. Phillips
Recreation Complex in Union
County. I have witnessed a
true sense of community,
volunteering and pride that
seems to be common place in
this county.
Our community has pulled
together to take a negative
situation of not having the
recreation center's new
concession stand and ball field
additions ready for the new
baseball season and provided
overwhelming support in the
area of free labor and materials
to get the job done. I am happy
to report that as of this writing,
there were no additional costs
to the county to complete the
center which was originally
estimated at more than
$10,000. The only thing
lacking as of this writing is
two concrete handicap pads for
those in wheelchairs to watch
the ball games.
The Department of
Corrections has gone above
and beyond in assisting with
construction, labor, grounds
maintenance and much, much
more. I especially thank. RMC
Warden Tim Cannon and
Assistant Warden Chris
Southerland as well as all
those in their charge, many of
whom humbly said they did
not want to be named for what
they had done for our
community.
In addition, the -Union
County SchoolBo6ard stepped
up to the plate as they always
do and volunteered numerous
man hours and materials. I
could not begin to listthe-
parents of players and even
those without players who
have so unselfishly given their
time and effort to see this
complex completed.
To see our community come'
together and work so diligently
for our young people is enough
to make anyone proud. God
bless Union County and those
who make it such a special-
place to live.

Store robbed
second time
in one week
The Kangaroo convenience
store at the corner of C.R. 233
(Morgan Road) and S.R. 16
was robbed on Feb. 9 for the
second time in six days.
The first robbery occurred
Feb. 3 and resulted in a high-
speed chase that ended with
the suspect dead as the result
of a vehicle crash.
According to Capt. Brad
Smith of the Bradford County
Sheriffs Office, the second
robbery happened at about 11
a.m. and this suspect also fled
the scene. However, this
suspect was apprehended.
Tajh Oneal Williams, 17, of
Starke was charged with armed
robbery.by BCSO deputies.
Smith said witnesses stated
Williams first entered the store
on Feb. 9 for a brief period and
left without buying anything.
A short time later, he allegedly
returned to the store wearing a
ski mask and brandishing what
appeared to be a machine
pistol, like an uzi. He allegedly
demanded money from the
clerk, who complied with his
demands.
Witnesses said the suspect
then left the store on foot and
travelled in a southbound
direction.
BCSO deputies responded
and civilian bystanders pointed
them into a field about a mile
south of the store. The suspect
had apparently been travelling
by bicycle, but had abandoned
it and began running across the
field. Smith said Williams
apparently also lost his pants
while jumping the fence.
BCSO detectives Kevin
Mueller and Brian Davis
pursued the suspect and caught
him a short time, later. They
also recovered the firearm he
used, which turned out to be a
plastic toy.
The store clerk identified
Williams as the suspect and he
was booked into the Bradford
County Jail.

2 charged
in KH home
invasion
Two men have now been
charged in relation to a home
invasion robbery that took
place Nov. 21 at a residence on
'S.. 100 in Ke, stone Rleights ."'
m.Michael Edcard J-oi man,,''
17, of Middleburg was charged
Nov. 25 with armed robbery
by Clay County Sheriffs
Office Deputy E.J. Twisdale in
relation to the incident.
On Feb. 4, Israel Manuel
Drago, 20, of Keystone
Heights was charged with
home invasion robbery by
CCSO Deputy E.W. Howell.
According to reports on the
home invasion incident,
Hoilman and Drago allegedly
went to a home on S.R. 100 in
Keystone Heights on Nov. 21.
The victim said Hoilman
entered the back porch and
knocked on the door. When the
victim opened the door, Drago
allegedly also entered the
porch wearing a black mask
and brandishing a gun.
The victim said both
suspects demanded money and
ordered him to lie down on the
floor. The victim refused to lie
down and Hoilman allegedly
punched him on the forehead,
causing a large bruise and a
lump.
The victim then gave
Hoilman $85.
The victim later picked
Hoilman out of a photo lineup
and he was arrested. During
the ensuing interview,
Hoilman named Drago as his
accomplice. A Warrant was
issued and Drago was arrested.
Upon his arrest, Drago
confessed to being involved in
several automobile burglaries
in the Keystone Heights and
Melrose areas. In one incident,


two electronic surveying
devices were stolen fonio a
truck. The devices were valued
at $7,500 each, so a charge of'
grand theft was added to those
being faced by Drag"o.

Man flees,

attempts
to hide from

UC deputies
Deputy David Shane of the
Union County Sheriffs Office
responded to a disturbance call
Feb. 5 in Lake Butler.
When he arrived, he was
told by the victim that her
boyfriend had been extremely
intoxicated when he allegedly
entered the bedroom where
both she and her young son
were sleeping.
She reported they had a
verbal altercation, which
allegedly turned physical when
he punched her in the left ear
and poured beer on her twice.
She called 911 and he fled the
residence on foot.
She identified the suspect as
Dale Vincent Crawford, 24, of
Lake Butler.
Deputy Shane then went to
another area in Lake Butler
attempting to locate Crawford.
A resident in a trailer park
stated that Crawford had been
at her house, but had run out
the back door.
Deputy Shane went to the
rear of the trailer, but found it
locked and found no evidence
that anyone had exited
recently. Deputy Shane then
looked through a window and
saw someone crawling on the
floor through the rooms of the
trailer.
The property owner let
Deputy Shane into the trailer
and he allegedly found
Crawford attempting to
conceal himself behind the
bedroom closet door. Deputy
Shane had his Taser drawn and
said he ordered Crawford to
place his hands where they
could be seen and come out
from behind the door.
Crawford 'came out from
behind the door, but allegedly
continued to come toward the
deputy, refusing to obey
Shane's repeated orders to stop
and stand still.
Deputy Shane used his taser
and placed Crawford in
handcuffs.
Crawford was given a
medical examination and then
bookedd into the Union County
,'Jail on charges-of battery and
resisting an office without
violence.

Tigers defeat Indians r -


again to claim district title


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Sharmaine Couch and
Jamika Ruise came up big in
the fourth quarter for the
Union County girls' basketball
team, complementing
teammate Amber Stewart's
game-high 23 points and
helping lead the Tigers to a 59-
42 win over Keystone Heights
in the District 6-3A
championship game played
Feb. 7 in Keystone.
It is the second straight
district championship for the
Tigers (20-4), who beat
Keystone last year in the
tournament finale, as well.
"It feels great," said Couch,
one of the returners from last
year's team. "I give all the
credit to my lord and savior
Jesus Christ, my teammates
and my coach."
The Tigers will now host

quarterfinal game tonight, Feb.
12, at 7 p.m. Keystone (13-13),
as the district runner-up, will
travel to Gainesville to play
P.K. Yonge. P.K. Yonge (24-
0) won the District 5
championship by defeating
Williston 56-23.
Union held a three-point
lead over Keystone early in the
fourth quarter before going on
a 9-0 run. Ruise played a big
role in that, scoring on an
assist from Lashae Mitchell
and creating baskets for
Khadijah Jones and Ashli
Watkins with steals.
Down the stretch, it was
Couch who got it done for the
Tigers. She went 7-of-8 from
the foul line in the final 3:36
and scored a total of nine
points during that span. She
finished the game with 15
points.


It was Stewart, though, who
carried .the Tigers up to that
point. She scored 18 points in
the second and third quarters.
The rest of the team scored just
six points during that span.
Stewart scored six points in the
final 1:26 of the first half to
keep the Tigers within three,
then had eight points during a
12-0 run to open the second
half.
Union forced Keystone into
committing several turnovers
in rallying to take the lead. A
steal by Mitchell led to a
basket by Couch, while
Stewart scored following her
own steal to put the Tigers up
33-26. Stewart followed that
up by hitting a jumper after a
backcourt turnover. She then
made both free throws after
she was fouled in'the act of

juniors did what' was
expected."
Bradford's three district

"""B'rley Moron
Mri"I'l-nlimmonds'vwas'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 is also a Pinecastle Recording Artist, but
he is also 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 wife asked her if she saw those two morons that
was up there a minute ago, meaning us. That is when
the (Moron Brothers) was bom. 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.

"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, Osbome 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 summer 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.werejaimming
everyday after that in between duty. Tlhe 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.

Same record. Leadership
from returning eighth-graders.
Same opponents in the
Suwannee Middle School
Athletic Conference
tournament.
The boys' and girls'
basketball teams at Bradford
Middle School were similar in
several ways this year,
including the way they each
ended their seasons, by
holding aloft trophies in
celebration of finishing as


conference champions.
As boys' head coach Chad
Farnsworth put it, it was nice
to see "happiness and big
Smiles" for a change. The
boys' team had played for the
conference championship the
last two years under
Farnsworth's leadership, only
to come up short.
This year, Bradford defeated
Chiefland 31-18 to win its first
SMAC title since 2005.
That capped a season that
was pretty much a carbon copy
of how things went for the


girls' team. Each team went
undefeated against conference
foes, compiling overall records
of 11-2. The two losses for
each team came against the
same non-conference
opponent-Lakeside of
Orange Park.
Each team played Lake
Butler in the semifinal round
of the SMAC tournament.
Then, like the boys, the
Bradford girls' team played
Chiefland for the
championship. The girls won
by a score of 37-8 to win their


'first title since 2003.
Girls' coach Sharon Thomas
said her team's success this
year was a total team effort,
but it was the trio of returning
eighth-graders Lakia Bright,
Taquandra Diggs and Nicole
Jenkins that really led the way.
Those three grew so much
since playing in sixth grade,
maturing as individuals and
basketball players, Thomas
said.
"I'm going to miss them
next year," Thomas said.
Bright scored 22 points in
the rout of Chiefland. It was
the same point total she had in
a much tougher semifinal
game.
The Hurricanes were tied
with Lake Butler 22-all
heading into the fourth quarter'
before outscoring the Tigers
14-3. Thomas said the
momentum of the game turned
when Wilisha Griner hit a 3-
pointer from' the corner.
Bradford then. turned up the
defensive pressure, forcing
turnovers that led to layup
opportunities.

Tigers defeat

Taylor to

advance to

semifinals
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a slow start, but the
Union County boys' basketball
team still did not have much
trouble with Pierson Taylor,
defeating the Wildcats 53-29
in the quarterfinal game of the
District 6-3A tournament,
which was held Feb.- 10 in
Keystone Heights.
The Tigers missed eight of
their first 10 field-goal
attempts and did not score
until approximately halfway
into the first quarter.
Isaac Johnson came off the
bench and gave the Tigers a bit
of a spark. He hit a jumper at
the end of the first quarter on
an assist from Quientin
Johnson to put the Tigers up 6-
4. Isaac Johnson then made a
3-pointer to get things started
in the second quarter.
Quientin Johnson then took
his turn, finding the basket on
a floater along the baseline,
then grabbing a defensive
rebound and finding Kendall
Wright downcourt for a layup
and a 15-4 lead.
The Tigers led by 15 at the
half and got off to a quick start
in the third quarter when Chris
Alexander and Adam. Cason,
each hit a 3-pointer. Shamari
Holland later hit a trey before
the Tigers closed .out the
quarter by outscoring the
Wildcats 6-1. Wright's layup
at the buzzer gave Union a 42-
21 lead.
Alvin Jernigan had
consecutive layups to put the
Tigers up by 25 early in the
fourth quarter. The quarter also
featured three field goals by
Quientin Johsnon-one of
which was a 3-pointer.
Johnson finished the game
with a team-high 11 points.
Darius Corbitt added eight
points.
The Tigers, the tournament's
fifth seed, will now play top
seed Crescent City in a
semifinal game at 6 p.m.
Friday, Feb. 13. If Union wins,
it will play for .the
championship Saturday, Feb.
14, at 7 p.m.
All games will be played at
Keystone Heights High,
School.

the exception of the final 2:15
of the first quarter. in which
Keystone had four field goals
and nine points. (The Indians
had 11 field goals overall.)

missed several shots
underneath the basket.
