UCSO deals

'with theft,

drugs, burglary


Alert employees
foil attempted
theft
Near closing time on the
evening of April 10, two
females entered Spires IGA in
Lake Butler and attempted to
pass a fraudulent check. Store
owner Tommy Spires said
employee John Thomas first
noticed there was something
not right about the check and
brought it to Spires' attention.
The fake check had the names
CVS and Sundries Foqd Mart
on it, but was drawn on a
bank with an address that
does not exist in Lake Butler.
While Spires called
authorities, the women ran
from the store. Spires,Thomas
and Mike Spires gave chase
on foot but the women were
pulled into a moving vehicle
driven by another female arid
fled the scene headed west on
S.R. 100.
The license plate number
was given to Union County\
Deputy Ken Smith and the
suspects-who apparently
did not know the area-were
apprehended after making
a wrong turn off S.R. 100
mistaking a driveway for a
through road. The sheriff's
office was assisted by Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper
Karey Hillard who was in the
area at the time.
Lt. Doug York stated that
warrants will be issued against
Kortini Patterson and Carel
Collington of Orlando and
Shanna Davis of Wildwood.
"In this case," York said,
"the suspects did rot get
away with anything due to
the quick observation of store
employees."

burglary has led to the arrest
of a Union County man.
James Eric Blackwelder,
27, was arrested on April 9
and charged with burglary,
grand larceny of a firearm,
possession, of a weapon by a
convicted felon and dealing
in stolen property.
Maj. Garry Seay with the
Union County Sheriff's Office
said that while tracking down
% stolen gun from a recent
burglary, authorities were led
to Blackwelder.
A vehicle known to be
driven by the suspect was
located and contained items
in plain view that matched
those stolen from a home
robbery.
The vehicle was impounded
pending a search warrant
that resulted in the recovery
of several pieces of stolen
jewelry and other stolen
items.

Starke disappointed by FMPA meeting Williams appointed


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


There's little support from
other municipal members of the
Florida Municipal Power Agency
to change or dissolve the agency .
or so city officials found when
they attended an executive board
meeting in Orlando on March
26.
Starke Mayor Wilbur Waters
called it a useless trip.
"They don't care": he said.
again placing the blame for
Starke's high utility rates on the
power agency.
Waters said he asked the
other members present at the
FMPA board meeting if they-
w\ere interested in exiting the
all-requirements contract.
Only Green Cove Springs and
Lake Worth answered in the
,affirmative. The other municipal
member said they \ere happy
where they were and "they let it
be known," Waters said.
Waters said the consensus
\vas that mistakes were made
in hedging so much of FMPA's
natural gas supply, and members
are going to continue to pay the
price.
L ike\vise, the millions Florida
Power and Light charged FMPA
for unauthorized use of its
transmission lines might be a
mistake, but it's one that members
have paid for.
When member cities were
forced to pay a proportionate
share of the unexpected bill,
their power customers' hills
skyrocketed.
If investigation finds that
FMPA did not owe the money as
FPL claims, then members will
be refunded their proportionate
share, but the investigation
could take as much as a year to
complete.
While, as some city
commissioners suggested.
FMPA did not go out and borrow
new funds to cover the bill, it has
offered sorpe relief. FMPA has
$20 million it has borrowed but
not used, and it turned around
an offered to loan that money
to member cities as a way of
stabilizing their customers'


utility hills.
The only proviso is that
the money must he repaid by
December.
Starke city commissioners said
thanks. but no thanks.
Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner wanted to know if there
was any recourse.the city has if
it charges that FMPA has been
mismanaged. The city attorney,
Terry Brown, said there was
no such recourse except for a
majority of the FMPA executive
board to vote to fire senior
management.
Brown said the problem
Waters and Thompson found
is that the board members are
the municipal representatives
who have been there for years,
participating in the poor decision
making. They arc .generally
not elected officials, he said,
but people who are "wined and
dined" by FMPA
"They're all good buddies-
simple as that," said Brown.
Of course the city of Starke's
representative is also unelected.
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson represents Starke.on
the executive board.
Brown suggested going to the
elected officials in the various'
municipalities to gauge if
they are .truly happy..receiving
power through FMPA or if they
believe they can get better rates
elsewhere.
' There was some brief. talk
about exiting the contract and
the $50 million city would have
to pay to do so, as well .as selling
its share in the agency to other
members, something City Clerk-
Linda Johns said the contract
would not allow.
Waters put an end to the
discussion.
"We can talk about this all
night long, it's not going to do a
bit of good because we can't get
out, we're locked in. and that's
where we're going to stay," he
said.
He and Thompson did hold out
a little hope that by late summer
or early fall, costs would decrease
as the percentage of natural gas
hedged declines.
The fuel adjustment w\as

the next.
Statistics published h\ the
Florida Municipal Electric
Association show Starke's fuel
adjustment charge dropping from
January to February. It was down
by almost $17 for residents using
1,000 kilowatt-hours or less of
electricity, taking a 1,000 kWh
bill from $157.90 to 141.08.
The electric rate is higher for
those using more than 1.000
kWh. For 2.500 kWh hi ll,the fuelf
adjustment went from $204.88 iri'
.lanuary to $162.83 in February. a
drop of more than $42. That took
a 2.500 kWh bill from $434.90
to $$392.85.
To further illustrate how much
higher the city of Starkeis rate is
for those using more than 1.000
kWh of electricity a month (the
average is said to he 1,500 kWh).
there were 10 cities who charged
more than Starke at the 1.000
kWh level in February. ,
At the 2.500 kWh level.
however. Starke was the most
expensive municipal electric
utility in the survey. (In January,
it \\was the most expensive utility
at both levels.)
As for commercial power,
Starke was the most expensive
municipal utility in January
and the third most expensive in
February.
The release of the figures for
March will reveal if the fuel
adjustment charge continues to
drop. The February numbers
nay reflect reduced electricity
consumption and the fact that the
city used rate stabilization funds
set aside \hen the budget was
planned last year to help reduce
customer bills.
Without .additional money to
replenish the fund. the city won't
be able to offer the same break

Starke has entered a service
agreement for the Biochem
Neutralizer technology it is
adding to its sewer plant.
The' city commission
approved the contract with BCR
.Environmental, although the 20-
year term of the contract gave
pause to commissioners wary
of long-term contracts given the
agreement entered with the city's
current electricity provider years
ago.
Th'e agreement, though long.
can be terminated with 30 days
notice. The lengthiness of the
agreement is. in part, meant to
.provide some assurance to the
city that BCR will be around to
continue :managing the costly
system.
The commission approved the
contract pending verification
from the city engineer that all
.previously agreed upon changes


had been incorporated into the
contract. According to BCR's
Nick Stonestreet there were more
than a dozen comments from the
engineer, some of which \were
minor, but they were resolved.
There \'as some question. but
no answer, about why the city's
engineerofrecord,GarrySneddon
of Stone. Joca and Associates. did
not attend the meeting to answer
questions about the agreement or
modifications made.
Commissioners said they
did not have time to review the
contract prior to voting, but
agreed to move forward as a
contractor w\as waiting to get
started on installation of the
system.
. The project is worth around
$1.7 millioil.'including the work
that went into preparing the
treatment plant and the upcoming
installation of the new biosolids
treatment system.

City, county will collect on

red light and other infractions

What you don't know might cost you


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

there's little
the city of
Starke can do
to penalize
those who get
photographed
by traffic
cameras
running a
red light
and refuse to pay the $150 fine
they receive in the mail, the city
hopes people's ignorance of that
fact will have them paying up
anyway.
Police Chief Jeff Johnson
said he didn't realize the traffic
camera ordinance approved by
the city commission last month
contained little in the way of
"teeth" until it was published in
the newspaper.
Once cameras are in place,
drivers will befined $150 by the
city for running a red light. Per
the ordinance, those who don't
pay the fine cannot be issued
building permits or occupational
licenses in the city limits,
penalties that would man little
to the vast majority of motorists
who pass through the city each
day.
Johnson asked what the city's
recourse would be if "there's no
teeth" to the ordinance approved
by the commission in March.
"Is that the only teeth we have?
And if so, we need to realize
that's all we have to hold over
these people," Johnson said.
Terry Brown, attorney for
the Starke City Commission,
said enforcement remedies are
limited when dealing with traffic
violations through municipal
ordinance, but he pointed out
that.hasn't stopped people from
paying the fines in other cities
that employ camera technology
at red lights.
a The downfall of citing people
under the state traffic code is
that the cir- doem o-reemeite mois
of the mone,-.-B. 4
city's ne y ordinance"nt only
allows a vendor to come in and
install cameras at the traffic
ligts,.it allows the city to keep
the most of the revenue from the
citations issued because running
the red light is now a violation of
a municipal ordinance.
alBrown said the advantage of
the city's system for motorists is
tlht when they are caught running
a red light and issued a fine,
ncd points accumulate against
their license and their insurance
pitmiums do not increase.
The goal of that point system,
however, is to get dangerous
d uvers off the road. Repeat
vi lations and point accumulation
can lead to license suspension.
here the state traffic laws are
cdOcerned, drivers often have the
option of expunging points from
their record by attending classes
aimed at improving driver
safety.
The city of Starke, on the other
hand, cannot suspend a license
arid it won't be conducting classes
to educate drivers either.
As far has how things are
gdingo to "pla out". forth city
of Starke, when 'it comes to
motorists actually paying the
fines. Brown said just look at the
statistics from other cities that
have installed cameras.
Johnson cited statistics that
showed 70 more percent of those
fiied pay on the first notification,
arid another 80-90 percent pay on
the second notification.
According to Broawn.
expcrience seems to show that
people pay because they do
not Iknow what enforcement
mechanisms-or lack thereof--
the city has at its disposal.
..fhey treat it the same way
they would normally.treat any
type of citation from the police
department.'" Brown said. "They
don't really know that their
license can't be suspended and
most of these people pay."
.lohnson said safety was a
goal of establishing mtinicipal
enforcement of traffic laws
and commissioners agreed.
Mayor Wilbur Waters said the.
city needed to do something to


cameras would result in more
rear-end collisions. Waters said
he would prefer to be rear-ended
than be involved in some of the
other accidents the city has seen.
With the cameras in place, the
city will be able to see who is at
fault, too, he said.
Brown called i.t '- no-lose
situation for city government
since the commission doesn't
even have to pay for the cameras
the vendor would be installing.
(The vendor makes its money
back by skimming a profit off
the top of the citations issued.)
He said if people locally know
the cameras are there and avoid
running red lights, then that's a
good thing.,
Commissioner Tommy
Chastain suggested posting signs
at either end of town so motorists
would know there are traffic
cameras in town (although not
specifically where) and pay more
attention to traffic lights.
Johnson w\as also under the
impression that the commission
was going to take action on
illegal parking, although the
ordinance approved last month
did not address parking.
While the commission has
established time limits for on-
street parking downtown, state
law prevents police officers from
writing violations except directly
to the driver. If no driver is
present, then no violation.
Johnson had talked to the
commission about passing a local
ordinance that would get around
that requirement and let officers
to leave citations on vehicles or
have them towed.
Commissioner Travis Woods
said that if the city is going to
go back and address parking it
could address other infractions at
the same time, like running stop
signs and speeding in a school
zone, if doing so would generate
revenue for the city.
"Then that money is going to
come to the city of Starke and
stay with the city of Starke, and it
don't. ,-" +-i-. ty -hc. .n'tsn

Brown asked if the cameras
would "clock speed" as well. and
Johnson said they could, although
there doesn't appear to be a city
in the state using the cameras to
cite speeding on yellow.

slow down traffic and prevent
accidents.
"If they know the camera's up

Deflecting criticism that the


Sheriff Gordon Smith was
present at the city commission
meeting and most of the money
generated by citations under the
state trafficcode goestothe courts
and other causes. He said he, too,
was looking at decriminalizing
certain infractions so citations
could be written by the sheriff's
department and the county could
keep the revenue.
Smith said state fine increases
mean the system has gone from
serve and protect to "serve and
collect." His problem with that
is that the local departments
who are issuing state citations
are receiving very little from the
state in return.
"I feel like if we can do this
and save our city money in this
economy, then that's what we
need to be doing," Woods said.
"I think you're right." said
Smith.
The city commission approved
selection ofacontractorsubmitted
by Johnson as expected.
If an acceptable contract can
be reached with vendor Gatso
USA, it will he approved at
the next commission meeting
and the company will proceed
with studying intersections
and making, recommendations
for how cameras should be
installed.
The policechief said there were
a number of lingering issues that
need to be addressed, like where
the cameras will be placed will
that be affected by intersection
improvements by the state at 3'01
and 100 possibly beginning later
this year.
There is also the question of
what to do about commercial
vehicles, since the law requires
them to display their tags on the
front of the vehicle. Johnson said
if cameras cannot be installed
to photograph the front of those
vehicles, then they are not going
to help the city.
According to a Gatso
representative, they've found 90
percent of those cited pay after
ihe first mailing. The number
'',c' up to 95 percent on the
second mailing and 98 percent if
,the citation is turned over to their
collections department.

maintain records to improve

Many forms of individual
animal identification can be
used in the beef industry. Some
are used alone while others are
combined to ensure each animal
maintains its identity if one or
the other fails. Some of these
methods include fire brands,
freeze brands, ear tags, tattoos
and future developments.

Fire branding
Fire branding is very common
in the beef industry, but it's
very stressful to the animal and
damages the hide. Cattle that
have a fire brand often take' a
price deduction when marketed
due to hide damage. Other
methods of identification can
successfully identify animals
without elevating stress levels or
affecting the quality of the hide.

Freeze branding

branding can use a. relatively
stress free, non-hide damaging
method known as freeze
branding. Although two basic
protocols for freeze branding
can be used, many tricks and
techniques have been developed
to improve the quality of each
brand.
The effectiveness of freeze
branding is variable and results
are usually better for black and
red cattle than for white cattle.
Over time, these brands may
fade, so an additional form of
identification such as tattooing
should be considered as a
backup..

Ear tags and tattoos
Many beef producers use
ear tags coupled with tattoos to
identify their cattle. Ear tags are
very common, and the variety
of colors and styles may seem
endless.
Tattooing cattle is an excellent
backup method of permanently

UC district



chooses top



employees


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
All of the Union County
School district Teachers of
the Year and School-Related
Employees of the Year were
recognized at a recent school
board meeting.
District Teacher of the

was previously profiled in a
feature story, as was Union
County High School's Teacher
of the Year Amanda James.
In addition, School-Related
Employees of the Year, Dawn
Roberts (LBMS) and Nancy
Fischer (UCHS) were profiled.

Nick Johnson wins
district SRE
Dennis (Nick) Johnson is
the maintenance department
school-related employee of the
year and has also been named
as the district school-related
employee of the year.
Johnson has been employed
in the school district in the
maintenance department for 15
years. He works as the district's
electrician, supervising daily
work orders and handling
all electrical issues for the
schools.
To save with district costs,
Superintendent Carlton Faulk
said that when the former
maintenance director retired,
the position was not filled, but
Johnson willfully stepped up to


the plate as the director without
an increase in his salary. "I
am very proud of the job he
has done for the district," said
Faulk.

School board SRE:
Marie Pittman
Marie Pittman is the district
school board office school-

and on-going communications
with the department of
education. She also oversees
the Pre-K budgets, monthly
attendance reports and
communication with the Early
Learning Coalition, NEFEC
and parents.
Johns said that Pittman also
works under the direction of
two other district employees,
Bobbie Morgan and Debi
Dukes. Under Morgan, she is
responsible for maintaining all
records related to in-service
points for certified teachers.
Under Dukes, she is
responsible for coordination
of all district wide' student
assessments for FCAT,
FLKRS, SAT-10 and school

"I don't, know what I'd do
without her," Johns said. "I
couldn't ask for an employee
with a better attitude."

is also a certified bus-operator
trainer. District Transportation
Specialist Michael Pittman
said Andrews continues to be
an asset to the transportation
team.
"She has cared for the

said.

Barry Sams. district director
of alternative education.
described Touchstone as
someone who has always shown
she is willing to go the extra
mile for her students. "Nancy's


greatest attribute is her day-

youth at the school. In a job that
others may find intimidating,
Nancy thrives and has gained
respect from students that do
not give it easily."

LBES SRE: Tammy
Wilkerson
STammy Wilkerson is Lake
Butler Elementary School's
School-Related Employee
of the Year. Wilkerson began-
at the elementary school as a

time to write the school's
weekly newsletter that is
distributed to the nearly 1.000
students at the school and is the

year and works tirelessly to
put everything together to meet
the deadlines. In addition, she
searches for ways to cut costs
and keep the yearbook at a
reasonable cost for parents.
"Ms. Wilkerson practically
lives at this school, coming
in early to assist in opening
the office and answering the
phone each morning, then often
stays late to finish one of the
many tasks she's taken on,"
said Principal Lynn Bishop.

Special event helps handicapped youths


BY-PAUL KISH
Special to the Tines
Southern Youth Outdoor
Adventures (SYOA) recently
held their 6t annual Rollin'
for Gobblers turkey hunt in
Lake Butler, and,as in previous
years, it was a huge success on
all fronts.
This isn't your average
turkey shoot because these,
youth are wheelchair rolling
hunters, some of whom have
other mental or physical
handicaps, but do not generally
have someone who/is able to
take the time to work with them
'and teach them to hunt..
Several local ,adults
volunteered to assist iri
getting the youths around in
their wheelchairs and others
volunteered as hunting guides.
Jason Stalnaker began the
annual Rollin' for Gobblers
event in 2004 after learning
thatta friend's son, who was
wheelchair bound, loved to hunt
.and fish. Stalnaker thought it
would be great if he could take
him out hunting one day and
thought of how much greater it
would be to open up an event
to other disabled children in
the area.
This year things got kicked
off on a Friday afternoon at
Avery Roberts' hunting lodge
in Union County with a meet
and greet for the hunters and
guides. Many of the young
hunters had very limited
experience hunting, or for that
matter, handling a firearm.
Roberts' camp was the
perfect venue for these youth
to learn about, firearms safety,
the basic workings of the gun
they will hunt with.-and most
importantly, to make those guns


go "boom" a few times!
This was merely a precursor
to the -actual hunt, but seeing
the looks on the faces of these
young people as they.got to
blast away at turkey targets is
worth the price of admission
for me;
This year, SYOA changed
things up a bit from the normal
program. In an effort to involve
.more disabled youth from the
surrounding communities, a


banquet-style dinner was held
at the Lakeside Community
Center in Lake Butler, featuring
a belly-busting supper and
live auction with all sorts of
goodies.
Everythiitig from pedicures
to guided quail hunts to highly
collectible turkey calls were on
the block. Lots of great folks
opened up their wallets and
hearts to make the auction a
huge success.


Stalknaker said that he was
pleased to announce that with'
the money raised this year,

Few of the paint out artists' works include Melrose residents or any
human form. This set of whimsical clay figures by Kristen Englund was an
exception. It depicts-and named-regulars at Chiappini's.


Melrose paint
out draws,
statewide crowd

BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Three may have been the
charm for the annual' Melrose
Paint Out, a week-long arts
extravaganza designed by two
of the (now three) Melrose art
houses.
The concept is fairly simple:
Invite a lot of artists to paint
around town for a week; then
have a big party and sell what
they produce.
The actual event is a little
more complicated than that.
The paint out also .involves
finding a week's housing for
artists from far away. There's
registration to keep it organized,
advertising, getting homeowner
permission to set up easels in
back yards, catering the fancy
parties and hiring musicians to
perform.
Too bad that on the event's
third year, there was an


economic recession to deal
with for what is, after all, an
industry that lives and dies on
expendable income.
Never mind, the organizers
had a plan. The call went
out to attract more artists than
ever-75 in all-from all over
Florida.
SAccording to Dale and
Carol Bassett, the visitors who
showed up were welcomed in
Melrose, especially since many
shopped around town or spent
breakfast and lunch hours at
their Melrose Cafe and other
local dining spots.
But since, the organizers
promised to hang at least five
of each artist's works, those
works had to be fairly small
to fit them all irto the two
Melrose galleries. Fortunately,
down economy or not, small
works are almost always more
affordably-priced than large
ones.
'Painter Gary Borse, a
participating artist with
statewide recognition, said he
and others understood that it
wasn't the right time to paint
those room-sized masterpieces
that sell for thousands of
dollars.

2 appointed
to KAA; one
seat tabled
At a special meeting of the
Keystone Heights city council
last week, two men were
appointed tothe KeystoncAirpark
Authority and the appointment of
a person to fill a third seat was
postponed.
Five candidates applied for the
three seats. Those were Philip
Arnold, Ivor Wigham, Ron
Blake ,Noel Thomas and Doug
Wise.
One of the two seats
belonged to incumbent Thomas,
who was re-applying for the
position. Thomas was quickly
reappointed.

Seat 2 was left open following
the death of Bob Can'ady, who
chaired the hoard for several
years. After discussion, Arnold
was appointed to fill the scat and
finish ('anadv's'llteri. which' ends
in 2010. ."
The third seat was designated
as a Bradford County seat, left
open by former member Ron
lilly.
The discussion got 'heated
when City Attorney Rob Bradley
said.Wise did not qualify to serve
on the hoard, since he resides in
Alachua County.
Wise responded that a city
ordinance made allowance for
candidates with a Keystone
Heights address or living in an
adjoining county.
Bradley interpreted the
statement to say candidates must
reside in Keystone Heights not
just maintain a post office box.
"The charter says 'live,
Bradley said. "It couldn't be
more clear."

Treasurer Dean Weaver then

FEST:

Continued from p. 1A

Youth groups will be selling
strawberry shortcake. The
festival is an opportunity for
local organizations to earn
some support dollars and this
year is no exception.The Starke
Woman's Club, for example,
will be selling strawberry
pancakes beginning at 8:30
a.m. Saturday morning at the
clubhouse located at the corner
of Walnut and Jefferson.
.And Whittle couldn't help
but mention a favorite, "Berry-
liscious," who dips strawberries
in chocolate and makes a
strawberry-brownie dessert
that's "totally sinful."
Lest you think it's all about
:the berry, don't be fooled.There
will be plenty of variety. You
won't have to search hard to
find Greek food, for example, or
Thai, or barbecue, or Mexican,
including just about anything
you can stuff into a quesadilla,
Whittle said.
In addition to around 100
vendors signed up for the event,
many .downtown merchants
will be open and even out on
the sidewalk promoting their
businesses. Whittle encouraged
those who plan on visiting the
festival to stroll by or walk in
and support local businesses.
(The movie theater will also
be open Saturday evening
and she said Walnut Street
may be opened for traffic
convenience.)
Returning vendors include a
gentlemen offering a diverse
range of exotic live plants and
Harper's Wood Shop, which
makes chairs, tables, chests and
more.
The Strawberry Festival
is fun for the whole family.
Kids can keep busy with free
train rides, a bounce house,

Faith keeps Northam going despite prostate cancer


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
*Dcimer Northam may not be
able to walk the survivors'
victory lap to kick off this
weekend's American Cancer
Society Relay for Life in
Keystone Heights, but that's
OK because if doctors'
diagnoses and statistics held
true to form, Northam would
not even be here to take part in
the event.
Northam, who has prostate
cancer, was told by two
doctors after hifs diagnosis that
men with the cancer could
expect to live seven to eight
years, provided the cancer had
not spread to other parts of
their bodies. Northam's cancer
had spread to other parts of his
body, but 15 years later, the
72-year-old Keystone resident
is still alive to talk about his

health.
Throughout that time,
Northam has endured surgery,
radiation treatments and
chemotherapy and trips to two
different cancer centers, yet he
and his wife, Barbara, have
gone on living life to its
fullest.
"It hasn't slowed us down,"
Barbara Northam said. "We
traveled to Alaska. We
traveled to Hawaii. We're not
people who sit down and just
say, 'Oh, me.'"
A big part of what has kept
the Northams going is their
faith. Delmer does not dwell
on the fact he has cancer. He
thinks of the extra time he's
been given here on earth,
saying simply, "The Lord has
been real good to me."
During the time Northam
traveled to the Moffitt Cancer

Center in Tampa, which began
some six or seven years after
his diagnosis, he was told by
one of the doctors there he had
already outlived his prognosis.
Northam's response? God
wasn't through with him.
It appears as if God intends
for Northam to attend at least
one more Relay for Life. This
year's Keystone event, which
will be held at the, Keystone
Heights High School football
stadium, is scheduled to begin
Saturday, April 18, at 2' p.m.
and run through 8 a.m.
Sunday, April 19.
Northam has been involved
with the fundraiser for the
American Cancer Society for
at least five years. Noel
Thomas, one of the event's
coordinators, said Northam has
been an excellent fundraiser
during that time, but Northam
has played another important
role in regards to the event-
he gives hope to others.
"That's one .of the reasons
why there are a lot of people
involved with us," Thomas
said.
Northam's first year of

Heights, was

participation made such an
impression on him that he said
he had to continue his
involvement despite whatever
state his health was in at the
time.
"It was quite impressive to
me to know that there were
people out there trying to raise


money to help me and
reaching out and trying to find
a cure for my sickness,"
Northam said.
Though he has had cancer
for the past 15 years, Barbara
Northam said for most of those
years, it was hard to think of
her husband as being sick. -


"This is a man who used to
lift weights, run and climb
trees," she said. "He was very,
very active up until probably
two years ago."
It was Nov. 19, 1993, when
Delmer Northam was
diagnosed with prostate
cancer. Earlier that year, he
had open-heart surgery.
"You think you're in perfect
health," he said, "but.you find
out that you're not."
That would seem to be quite
a turbulent year, but Northam
and his wife also experienced
the birth of two grandchildren.
"It was a bad year, but a
good year," Barbara said.
Delmer underwent surgery,
followed by seven weeks of
approximately 35 radiation
treatments. After a period of
years, his doctor admitted he
had done all he could for him
and recommended that he go
to a major cancer clinic: The
Taussig Cancer. Clinic is
located in Cleveland, Ohio,
which Delmer decided to try
since his daughter lives there.
Doctors at the clinic, though,
told Northam there wasn't
much they could do for him.
He eventually returned home.
His doctor in Gainesville then
suggested he try the Moffitt
Cancer Center.
"They were very outstanding
and very cordial toward us,"
Northam said. "They just
welcomed us with open arms."
Northam and his wife
traveled back .and forth to
Tampa over the purse of six
years. Eventually, though,
.Northam was told by his
doctor that the center had done
rall it'could do for him after
administering "many various
chemotherapy drugs. Northam
was part of a group of 10
patients accepted at the center
at the same time, but was the
only one who remained alive
at the end.
When the doctor informed
Northam of that bit of news,
*Northam replied, "I've got
somebody who's helping me."
As someone of stroiig faith,
Northam said everything is in

for many years, passed away-
unexpectedly April 14.
According to family friends,
Marshall was at her home in
Starke recovering from injuries
sustained in a recent
motorcycle accident. The
injuries were not life-
threatening and friends said it
was believed she was
recovering well.
Marshall's husband, Greg, a
teacher at Bradford High
School, had gone to the
couple's home at lunch time
and told friends she seemed
well, although in some pain
from the injuries. She took a
pain pill at that time and he
returned to work.
Greg Marshall told friends
he contacted Lynn via
telephone at about 3 p.m. and
found he could not understand
what she was saying. He called
911 and rushed home, but it
was too late.
There was no word on
services as of press time
Tuesday evening.
Lynn Marshall was a teacher
to the core. Although an avid
stained glass artist and very
active member of the First

Community is family for Bowen during bout with cancer


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
She came from a family that
had no history of cancer, but in
a sense, but Linda Bowen is
now a member of a family
composed of many members
who have been affected by the
disease.
Bowen, who works at the
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office, was diagnosed with
breast cancer in late 2007. She
received tremendous support
from her immediate family, of
course, during surgeries and
treatments, but her family
essentially grew to include
friends, co-workers and people
she had never met. She learned
that many people she had
known for many years had
dealt with cancer at some point
in their lives without her
knowledge.
"They were calling me and
encouraging me," Bowen said.
"It was great. People I didn't
know and had never met
would call me and come see
me. That's the joy of living in
a small community. People
care about each other. They're
all-like family."
Bowen and many.of those
"family" members have been
raising money for the
American Cancer Society and
will take part in the
organization's annual Relay
for Life in Starke, which will
take place Friday-Saturday,
April 24-25, at the Bradford
High School track. (Relay
events are also scheduled for
April 18 in Keystone Heights
and May 15 in Lake Butler.)
"I helped last year with the
Relay for Life even though I
was going through chemo at
the time," Bowen said. "I
wanted to help again this
year."
Bowen will help by walking
as part of a team composed of
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office employees. On April 3,
visitors to the office were
greeted by delectable desserts
set up in the lobby, part of a
bake sale. to raise money for
the American Cancer Society,
an organization Bowen can't
say enough good things.about.
The organization provides
such things as books, pillows,
scarves and compensation for
mileage accrued because of

God's hands. When the doctor
at the cancer center told him he
would only live another six
months to a year, Northam
said, "Well, that might be true.
I don't know,, but God is the
one who really determines
whether we go to heaven and
when we go to heaven."
If Northam lives through
July 22, it will mark one year
since he received that last
diagnosis of how long he has
tolive.
?'We made the six months,"
hesaid. "I think we're going to
make a year."
m "k.


Bowen would essentially
sleep through the weekends
following the chemotherapy,
which she had on Fridays. She
would always return to work-
the Starke Police Department
at the time-on Mondays.
"I didn't lose very many
days at work," said Bowen,
who added the Starke Police
Department employees were
very supportive whenever she
did miss work.
Support-it was a big part of
helping her get through it all,
Bowen said. Though she
admitted the ordeal wasn't as
bad as she thought it was going
to be, she said it still wasn't
easy.
"If it wasn't for family,
friends, co-workers and my
faith in the lord, it would've
really been a lot harder than it

doctor visits, helps people
obtain wigs if they can't afford
them and offers such programs
as "Look Good, Feel Good,"
which is for women dealing
with hair loss and changes in
their skin.
"It's free," Bowen said of
the program, which she went
through. "They help you with
your makeup and give you all
this makeup.
"They do a lot of things I
think that unless you've had
cancer and been through it,
you're probably not aware of."
Bowen was unaware of the
American Cancer Society's
services prior to October 2007.
Then she learned she had
cancer, which was detected by
a mammogram. It was a bit of
a shocking diagnosis for
someone whose family has a
history of heart problems, not
cancer.
That brought home the fact
how important mammograms
are for women. Bowen
strongly encouraged her
daughter, daughter-in-law and
friends to get tested regularly.


, As important .ts'. God has
been for Northam during these
past 15 years, others have
stepped up and provided a
strong support system. Family
members, of course, have done
their part, while fellow
members of the Northams'
church-Trinity Baptist-have
also helped in any way they
could.
"We've got a wonderful
Sunday school class," Northam
said. "If you've got a need,
they'll reach out and meet that
need."
He has'received help, but
Northam also gives it through
his involvement with the Relay
for Life. He plans to be at the
track Saturday, joining other


She said she told those people,
"This can happen to anybody.
It happened to.me. You need
to have yourself tested."
Bowen admitted she put off
the cancer-finding
mammogram later than she
should have. That was because
she has had non-cancerous
cysts develop in her breasts in
the past. When she detected a
lump in her breast through
self-examination, she thought
it was just another cyst.
"Most of those (cysts) were
nothing to worry -about,"
Bowen said.
What followed the diagnosis
were three surgeries. First,
Bowen underwent a biopsy in
which several lymph nodes
were removed. Approximately
a month later, she underwent a.
mastectomy of her left breast.
She then underwent another
surgery a few weeks later in
which more lymph nodes were
removed.
Through it all, Bowen said
she remained calm. She
admitted she never cried until


cancer survivors as they make
their way around the track for
the inaugural lap. He may not
be able to walk that distance,
but that is 'an obstacle he will
overcome.
"I don't know whether I'll
make the lap or not," Northam
said. "If I can't, I've got a
little, old scooter I can use to
get around."

she heard that she was going to
have to have a third surgery.
"From the very beginning,
when I was diagnosed, I had'a
peace about it," Bowen said.
"I'm a Christian. I have a
strong faith in God. I just
believe he gave me a peace
about it so that I didn't have to
worry about it. I just put it in
his hands."
Bowen said she was
fortunate she didn't have to
have radiation treatments. She
did go through six
chemotherapy sessions, which
were spaced out in three-week
intervals, but she said that was
not too bad.
"It did make me sleep a lot,"
she said. "When I took my
chemo treatment, I would
sleep probably for two or three
days."


was," Bowen said.
Support also came in the
form of people attending, last
year's Relay for Life,
applauding as Bowen and
other cancer survivors walked
the event's inaugural "victory"
lap.
"It's just really touching that
that many people turn out to
support you and the
survivors," Bowen said.
Bowen is looking forward to
experiencing it again this year.
"This year, I feel better," she
said. "I got all the worst
behind me. I feel stronger. I
feel a lot better than I did last
year, so I'm really looking
forward to it more now."

Readers says
re-think camera
issue
Dear Editor:
The lead story in the
Bradford County Telegraph of
March 26, 2009, titled "Starke
Closer to Installing Cameras"
indicates the current city
commission is about to step
into quicksand and a previous
commission did when they
gave FMPA to the city The
city commissioners have only
looked at promised dollars
from having red-light cameras
installed. They need to remove
the blinders and consider what
it best overall for Starke and its
citizens.
The State of Florida enacted
a Uniform Traffic Code many
years ago to do away with
picayune city ordinances,
kangaroo courts run by city
judges who had no knowledge
of, or experience with the law
(other than their own arrests,
perhaps), and assure people a
hearing in a properly designed
court if needed. Now, our city
commissioners, in their
ultimate wisdom (or lack
thereof), are prepared to give
us a red-light ordinance with
appeals to the City Clerk. This
goes back to the days of city
judges who were mostly the
city mayors. Most of these
guys had no qualifications to
conduct any kind of courtroom
proceedings, their backgrounds
beng anything from
neighborhood junk dealer to
the biggest drinker in the local
pool hall depending on who
could horns-woggle the voters.
Florida's legislature put those
days behind us and that is
where they should stay.
Out-of-towners, be they
traveling citizens or semi-truck
drivers, will not have to pay
the red-light fine based on a
city ordinance. Other states
simply will not recognize that
city ordinance as they do our
state's uniform traffic laws.
Many tractor trailers have
license tags that you will not
be able to identify the driver
because he simply picked up
that trailer some place.-a4d-it
dWes not identify the iractor
driver. That leaves the burden
on the local citizen to pay the
fines based on an alleged
action that no police officer
witnessed.
Another issue is the pictures
of red-light runners. 'The
companies operating these
scams are located in distant
places and simply send
pictures to the local police
department. With modern
technology, they can simply
take a picture of every car
going through an intersection
.where cameras have been
installed, then. use their
computer technology to
superimpose a red light on
every picture and send it to the
local police department'which
Shas no real knowledge of what
actually happened. The
camera-owning company nets
about 40% of the proposed
$150 fine so there is a strong
motivation on their part .to
perhaps alter the pictures for
profit. Our local police chief
cannot allay this argument
because it is all done from far
away places and there is no
way to monitor the camera
company's behavior.
Another fallacy in their
argument is, that it will reduce


accidents at the intersections.
A recent article in the
Gainesville Sun related the
facts that many communities
that installed these cameras
have found this not to be true.
While there may have been a
few less side-impact crashes,
there has been a significant
increase in rear-end collisions
resulting in serious injury to
drivers.
Wake up, Starke citizens,
and tell your city
commissioners to not give us
another bad decision bordering
on the one that gave us FMPA
and exhorbitant electric rates.
If they vote this in, then let's
come together and vote them
out.
James D. Powell
(Editor's note: The ordinance
Powell writes about was
approved by the Commission
March 17. Infractions captured
are first examined by an
officer locally before a ticket is
sent.)

Preserve the

arts in school
Dear Editor:
I am all in favor of A+
schools, however, I think
there should be a different
system, one based on
including the arts, not
eliminating them from the
schools.
Ken Robinson, in his book,
"The Element" talks about a
groundbreaking program in
Oklahoma called A+ schools.
This program emphasizes the
arts as a way of teaching a
wide variety of disciplines
within the curriculum.
Music, art and drama are
used to enhance the teaching
of math, science and
language arts.
The system encourages
collaboration between
teachers of various
disciplines as well as between
students, teachers and the
community. These schools
have shown greater gains in
test scores than the school
system whose goal is "the
test." Our goal as teachers
-, should be to.teach children i
ihe jo!,of learning. Instead,
\ e sedin' 'te h to "the test"
and strike fear into their
.hearts about passing the
FCAT.


The first things to go when
money is the issue are the
arts. Music and art (if the
school has any art at all) are
eliminated to favor getting,
"back to basics,"-math,
science and reading.
We do not individualize
our teaching but attempt to
turn out students who can
quickly do math and reading.
Who cares if they enjoy these
pursuits; they just need to do
them and do them quickly.
I still remember as a sixth
grader being made to read
faster with the help of a
tachistoscope, a machine with
a light running down the page
which was set at a particular
reading speed. I read a lot
but didn't comprehend a bit
of it. And it certainly did not
teach me to love reading. My
mother, a public school
librarian, taught me that. She
hooked many children on
reading by exciting them
about books.
In our zest for better
schools, we forget that we
want well-rounded people
and a better.society and we
cannot do that .by drumming
the arts out of our schools. I
recently attended a high
school musical, which was'
done enthusiastically but on a
shoestring budget. The set
was so simple; it used duct
tape and cardboard for most
of the backdrops. It was
obvious that there was -no
money in the budget for those
extras. Nonetheless, the
actors gave it their all. It was
apparent that they loved what
they were doing.
Were they using math and
science? Maybe not, but they
certainly will remember
doing the musical. In fact, it
may be the best thing they
remember from high school.
Some of them may even go
on to acting careers.
As a society, we must
continue to value the arts.
After all, what is retained
from great societies of the
world? Do we not pass down
great art and music for
generations to enjoy? We
must keep these in our
schoolsand emphasize a love
of learni g rather, than the
learig 6f Pfaicts in order to
pass a test.

Charter
interpretation
needed
Dear Editor:
(The following is a copy of a
letter submitted to the
Keystone Heights City
Council)
As vice president of the last
charter review committee, we
voted unanimously to leave the
charter the same concerning
qualifications of members of
the airport authority.
Four must be "from
Keystone Heights" and one
"from Bradford County" and
one "from Clay County" and
one "from the Florida National
Guard."
Since the charter is a legal
document with a self-defining
political boundary and only
applies within the city limits,
"Keystone Heights" would
necessarily mean within the
city limits, otherwise it would
have undefined legal
boundaries.
It is understood that you
asked the electorate for an
interpretation of what is meant'
"from Keystone Heights" in a
"non-binding" straw poll and
they voted to interpret it to
mean anyone who has "a home
mailing address of Keystone
Heights." Did 'that change the
charter? No, only the
electorate changing the charter
in a charter amendment can do
that-you know that..Heaven
only knows what the "non-
binding" "straw poll" was
meant to accomplish-it
certainly is causing confusion
among the electorate, that it
did.
Why did the electorate, who
pay your salaries, vote to keep
4 of 7 members .. -from
'Keystone Heights". They
assumed as we did in the
charter review committee that
only tax-paying resident
citizens of Keystone Heights
should maintain control of the
airport so that no non-residents
could saddle us Keystone
resident citizens with a debt
from the airport without our
approval. It is human nature to
not care as much about losses
if you don't have to pay for it
and if you are not a tax-paying
resident citizen of Keystone
Heights, you simply do not
have to pay.
Now, if you interpret "from
Keystone Heights" to be only a
home mailing address, then (1)
can someone who lives in
Palatlp IRFt,.gets,,l iS, i ajj,,gt,,
P.O. Box at ,!e Keyctqne


Heights post office qualify
from Keystone Heights?
Now, if you interpret "from
Keystone Heights" to be from
only a home mailing address,
then I assume that same legal
logic can be applied to the one
member from Clay County,
that is someone could be a
resident citizen of Duval
County but have a home
mailing address in Clay
County and qualify for the
from Clay County membership
or (2) can they have just a
home mailing P.O. box in Clay
County but live in Duval
County?
Now, if you interpret "from
Keystone Heights" to be only a
home mailing address, then I
assume that same legal logic
can be applied to the one
member from Bradford
County, that is someone could
be a resident citizen of Union
County but have a home
mailing address in Bradford
County and qualify for the
from -Bradford County
membership. (3) Can they..
have just a home mailing P.O.
Box in Bradford County but
live in Union County?
Are you beginning to see
how silly and undefined this
interpretationn" controversy
has become? A written
response to all these questions.
would be appreciated because I
am confused.
I want to make it clear that I
am not concerned with what
person serves on the authority,
I am concerned that the
council seems to be searching
for a way to not follow the
charter. If you do not like the
charter, you can propose an
amendment to change it, that is
your prerogative.

I don't believe
in evolution!
Dear Editor:
I suppose there are other
people who feel the way I do.
When something bothers me, I
like to get if off my mind.
That's the reason I write to the
Telegraph often.
I believe a lot of people feel
the same way I do on some
matters and would be
interested in reading the
article.
No one can prove to me that
we evolved from monkeys. If
so, why haven't the monkeys
evolved? I can tell you why. In

Apology
Dear Editor:
In his essay "We are Free;,,
to be You, Me, Stupid andij<

states, "Freedom is like a,,n

course, referring to the ';
freedom of speech and i;

freedom of speech and:;o
expression as well as i!
legalized drugs is misuse. iH
While I relish these ,.!
freedoms, am I mature:
enough to practice control in::;
using them? I'm learning I rA
haven't been.
I have learned that many '
people enjoy finding fault
with the world around them, !
and, sadly, I am no exception. '
Maybe it was my 60
unconscious New Year's 'h
resolution or my increasing
age, but I'm tired of
practicing the. art of "
faultfinding. This practice not ;
only has detracted from my
enjoyment of living, but it
has also hurt others. I feel
immature hiding behind
valuable freedoms when my i"
selfishness causes pain. So,
I'd like to take a moment to
publicly apologize to those l
who have been terrorized by *'
my misuses of certain '-

Alert

employees foil
attempted

theft
Near closing time on the
evening of April 10, two
females entered Spires IGA in
Lake Butler and attempted to
pass a fraudulent check. Store
owner
-Tommy Spires said
employee John Thomas first
nbticed there was something
not right about the check and
brought it to Spies' attention.
The fake check had the names
CVS and Sundries Food Mart
on it, but was drawn on a bank
with an address that does not
exist in Lake Butler.
While Spires called
authorities, the women ran
from the store. Spires, Thomas
and Mike Spires gave chase on
foot but the women were
pulled into a moving vehicle
driven by another female and
fled the scene headed west on
S.R. 100.
The license plate number
was given to Union County
Deputy Ken Smith and the
suspects-who apparently did
not know the area-were
apprehended after making a
wrong turn off S.R. 100
mistaking a driveway for a
through road. The sheriff's
office was assisted by Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper Karey
Hillard who was in the area at
the time.
Lt. Doug York stated that
warrants will be issued against
Kortini Patterson and Carel
Collington of Orlando and
Shanna Davis of Wildwood.
"In this case," York said,
"the suspects did not get away
with anything due to the quick
observation of store
employees."

several pieces of stolen jewelry
and other stolen items.
SBlackwelder was later
arrested without incident, and

LETTER
Continued from page 4B

preferences, especially if they
were different from yours. In
degrading one candidate or
party to highlight the
qualities of another revealed
in me a willingness to
manipulate facts in order to
gain desired results. The
freedom blanket covering
temper tantrums, degrading
remarks and narrow
mindedness is a tattered one.
I am therefore no better than
those I criticize. I simply
forgot people were more
important than my political
agenda.
I apologize to those I have
judged unfairly. Your
behaviors, choices and, yes,
even your lifestyles are not
mine to judge. I forgot that
the only true freedom
available to me is the
judgment of myself, not you.
My judgment fell on you
because sometimes I forget
I'm not perfect.
No, more honestly, I am
afraid to judge myself. If I
place all my prejudices,
agendas and faults under
examination, a flawed
individual would appear.
Change would be required
and, well, you know how
bothersome change can be,
especially when it's so much
easier to make you the
specimen needing a moral
microscope However, I do
want to change. A
relationship with you,
whether as an acquaintance
or close friend, depends on
this change.
I apologize to Christians.
Jesus said, "This is my
commandment: That ye love
one another as I have loved
you." (John 25:12.K KJV) I
keep waiting for this love to
be activated. I see its
presence only in' select places
or in specific situations or
with certain people.
I don't recall Jesus
designating specific places to
show his love or selecting
only people who fulfill
detailed criteria. Jesus
simply loves people, all
people. Interestingly enough,
the only humans capable of
pissing Jesus off were the
religious folks-those who
judged instead of loved.


PanfortunatelySI oftenpsee6one


Unfortunately, I often see one
of those religious people
staring back at me when I
look in the mirror.
My apology to you, my
fellow Christians, is that I am
sorry I judge you when I, a
Christian by choice, fail to
love. I have misled other
Christians and non-believers
alike into believing God is a
god who shows favoritism,
demand righteousness and
sends people to hell for their
sins. When, if fact, he does
show favoritism-everyone
is his favorite. Righteousness
is a dirty rag and Jesus paid
for all sins, so why do I want
to keep putting him back on
the cross to pay for them
again?
I know without a doubt
that if I can put this "love"
concept into practice, I might
be able to give others a
glimpse of who Jesus really
is, not who I've created him
to be.
I apologize to God. I
misrepresent you almost
every day of my life. I have
placed you in a box that
contains everything I need to
build a god that resembles
me, not you. Now I know


why people don't want to
know you; to believe in you.
If I were God, I wouldn't
believe in me. You love
people for who they are right
now, not after they've
changed or get saved..
forgot you loved me before I
loved you. Funny, what a
short memory I have.
Leo Tolstoy wrote,
"Everyone thinks of changing
humanity, but no one thinks
of changing himself." Alas, I
hope I'm doing more than
thinking about changing
myself. Thank you for
allowing me to apologize. I
know the value of an apology
isn't simply in the offering.
No, .too many times, an
apology is only an excuse, a
Band-Aid covering a future
scar. What decides the value
of apology is what happens
after an apology is given. In
my case, change is necessary.
So, if and when our paths
cross, I pray the me you meet
is someone you will like,
someone who offers you a
moment's or more worth of
friendship in a critical,
judgmental world.

Brett Maddox gets
chance to play again
after dedicating his
life to serving God

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
When someone with
tremendous athletic ability
decides to give up playing a
sport, it is only natural for
others to puzzle over that
decision.
.Union County High School
graduate Brett Maddox did not
care what other people
thought. His only concern was
to please God, so when he
belie*e.d God wanted him to
give up baseball, he did so.
His obedience, he feels, has
now been rewarded as Maddox
is getting another chance to
play. He has signed with
Milligan College in Tennessee
after attending tryouts at the
school in January.
When next baseball season
rolls around, Maddox will
have been out of the sport for
two years. Though he willingly
gave it up, he has missed it.
"I've been psyched about
(playing again) for a while,"
Maddox said.
The 2007 Union County
High School graduate attended
a church youth camp in
Georgia following his
graduation. It was then, he
said, he came to the realization
he had been living solely for
himself. He wanted to dedicate
his life to serving God and
vowed that he would do
whatever God wanted him to.
What God wanted, Maddox
believed, was for him to give
up baseball and prepare
himself for ministry.work.
"I had tell people tell me it
was a ridiculous idea to give
up baseball," Maddox said.
He prayed long and hard
before making the decision to
do just that. Not long after that,
Maddox would have had to
quit playing for Lake City
anyway as the school
disbanded its athletic program.
"I just took that as a sign I
did the right thing," Maddox
said.
Instead of taking to the field,
Maddox spent time taking
classes at Jacksonville Baptist
Theological Seminary,
attending seminars and
actually preachingin a few
churches to as he said, "get his
feet wet."
As much as he loves to play
baseball, Maddox said it does
not compare to having the
opportunity to present God's
word. That, he said, can
change someone's life.
"Nothing feels better than
that," Maddox said.
He thought baseball was a
thing of the past, but then he
was asked to throw the ball
around with Brandon Davis, a
Union County High. School
graduate who is currently a
junior at Milligan. Davis
suggested Maddox look into
playing at Milligan. Milligan, a
Christian school, afforded
Maddox the chance to pursue a
degree in youth ministry:
The chance to continue his
service to God while playing
baseball was a reward from


God for his willingness to give
up baseball in the first place.
Maddox said. He likened it to
a test of faith, much like whale
Abraham went through when
asked to sacrifice his son,
Isaac.
Maddox said he made the
decision on Jan. 6 to pursue a
spot on the Milligan roster. He
attended team tryouts on Jan.
11 and signed a letter-of-intent
in February.
"I'm so proud of him,"
Union County head coach
Brian Tomlinson said. "I'm so,
happy he's going back into it."
Maddox stood out as a
pitcher at Union County High
School, compiling an I1-1
record and a 2.10 ERA during
his senior year. Most likely,
though, he will play in the
infield at Milligan. Maddox
said he anticipates playing
mainly third base- the
position he played at UCHS
when not pitching-bhut thinks
he could also play some at first
as well as fill the designated
hitter role.
As good as he was as a
pitcher, Maddox may have
made a' greater mark
offensively. He batted .451
during his senior year, hitting
seven doubles, nine home runs
and driving in 37 runs.
"We could use his bat in the
lineup right now," Tomlinson
said.
Tomlinson said Maddox has
some of the quickest hands he
has ever seen, which helped
make him such a success at the
plate. If he gets fooled on a
pitch, he's still quick enough
to get his hands around and hit
the ball with enough power to
drive it into a gap, Tomlinson
said.
"To be honest with you,"
Tomlinson said, "there aren't
many times he gets fooled with
a pitch:"
Despite the good numbers he
posted at UCHS, what really
stood out about Maddox was
his work ethic, Tomlinson
said. In fact, Maddox has been

coach Nathan Meade (standing, left) and Milligan

putting in a lot of time at the
Union County High School
facility, hitting in the cages
and preparing to play again.
"That's just Brett,"
Tomlinson said. "He's a hard
worker."
Milligan College is a
member of the Appalachian
Athletic conferencee and
competes in the National
Association of .Intercyllegiate
Athletics. The Buffaloes are
coached by Nathan Meade.
who is in his third year.
Milligan is currently 29-9 and
13-3 in the Appalachian
Athletic Conference. The
Buffaloes were 24-25 last year.
Maddox is one of 14 current
members of the Milligan 2009-
10 recruiting class.
Though he has not played in
a while, Maddox thinks he
won't have a problem getting


back into the game. He has
been brushing up on his skills
when no working at Davis
Express, but playing the. game
is almost second nature for
him.
"I've done it for so long," he
said.
Tomlinson is happy to see
Maddox get another chance to
play, not just because he's a
quality baseball player, but
because he's also a respectful
and well-mannered person.
"It couldn't .have happened
to a better kid," Tomlinson
said.

Earlier results:

Tornadoes play well
at Kissimmee Klassic
Bradford won two of four
games, placing fourth out of 16
teams at the annual Kissimmee
Klassic, which was played
April 2-4.
The Tornadoes entered the
tournament on a five-game
losing streak and losers..-of_
eight of their last nine games.
However, Bradford had nine
hits against St. Cloud pitcher
Samantha Gale, a sophomore
who was touted as perhaps the
best pitcher in Bradford's
bracket by the event's press
release, and defeated Pine
Castle Christian, the sixth-
ranked team in Class 2A and a
Final Four participant last
year.
"I don't know what it is
about that tournament, but they
always rise to the occasion,"
Bradford head coach Daniel
Davis said.
The overall play of the team
was improved, Davis said,
noting that if Bradford had
played Class 5A Tate a couple
of weeks ago, it very well
could have resulted in a 15-run
loss. At the tournament,
though, Bradford lost to Tate
by a score of 4-0.
"It was definitely the best
We've played all year long,"
Davis said of the team's
overall performance in
Kissimmee.
The Tornadoes started off
the tournament against St.
Cloud on April 2, getting a
total of seven RBI from
O'Neal and Kiki Strong in a 9-
3 win.
Bradford went up 7-1 after a
four-run fourth in which
O'Neal and Strong drove in
two runs each. The inning
marked the second time in the
game O'Neal hit a two-run
double. She had one in the first
inning to put the Tornadoes up
2-0.
O'Neal finished the game 3-
for-4 with four RBI, while
Strong was 2-for-3 with three
RBI. Tucker was 4-for-5.
Jones gave up no earned
runs (Bradford committed nine
errors), three hits and one
walk, while striking out five.
Bradford's second game
included solid performances
Again from O'Neal, Strong and.
Tucker, while Jones gave up
just four hits and no earned
runs 'in"an '8'-'r ii'"over Pine" ''
Castle Christian, a s'tat
champion two years ago, on
April 3.
Pine Castle's lone' run
occurred in the first inning
after Bradford committed two
errors.


Jones finished the game
giving up just three walks and
striking out seven.
O'Neal, who was 2-for-4,
drove in the game's first run
with a double. Strong tripled in
the second inning and put
Bradford up 2-1 when she
scored on Janna Rae Reddish's
ground out.
Strong did a good job of
creating scoring opportunities
for Bradford. She reached base
in the fourth by drawing a
walk, eventually scoring on a
single --by- .Christina Stocker
that also scored Ariel Wimpy.
In the sixth, Strong hit a lead-
off double before scoring on a
ground ball by Reddish.
Strong finished the game 2-
for-3, while Stocker was 3-for-
4 with three RBI. Tucker, who
drove in two runs in the
seventh, was 2-for-4 with two
RBI.
The win put the Tornadoes
in the semifinals of the
winners' bracket, but they
were. held to one hit by Tate
pitcher Megan Johnson in a 4-"
0 loss on April 4.
Strong had Bradford's only
hit, going I-for-2.
Jones allowed her first
earned runs of the tournament,
giving up 10 hits and three
walks, while striking out six.
A familiar opponent awaited
Bradford in the third-place
game on April 4-district
opponent Clay. The Blue
Devils scored three runs in the
bottom of the sixth to come
from behind and defeat
Bradford 9-7.
Each team scored two runs
in the first. Bradford then went
up 5-2 in the second after
Strong led off the inning with a
single. Tucker, Kimberly
Barrett and O'Neal each had
RBI singles.
Clay took the lead after a
four-run third, but Bradford
came back, scoring two in the
fifth. Ashley Johnson and
Winkler each singled before
Johnson scored on Strong's
ground out. Winkler scored
when Wimpy singled.
Clay took advantage of three
singles and a sacrifice bunt to
score three runs in the sixth.
Johnson, Tucker and
Winkler were each 2-for-4.
Jones gave up just four
earned runs to go along with
six hits, two walks and three
strikeouts.

increase in the sales of ethnic
vegetables.
Over the past few years,
researchers at Rutgers, the
University of Florida and the
University of. Massachusetts
have conducted intensive
surveys in major northeast
markets to quantify this
changing market demand and
to identify crops that are
popular among four large
ethnic groups that dominate
the Eastern Seaboard: Chinese,
Asian Indian, Puerto Rican and
Mexican.
The last U.S. census, in
2000, found 2.7 million Puerto
Ricans .in the 16 East Coast
states and the District of
Columbia, a population that
grew by 25 percent since the
previous census in 1990.
Though it's the largest of the
four groups studied group, it
wasn't the fastest-growing.
There were 1.5 million
Mexicans, 53 percent more
than in 1990; almost 900,000
Chinese, 48 percent more; and
800,000 Indians, a population
that rose by 106 percent.
Using interpreters and
bilingual surveys, 271 people
in each of the four ethnic
groups were given choices of
vegetables typically found in
their community markets and
considered potential candidates
to grow on East Coast farms,
to find how much they eat and
what they're willing to spend.
Chinese selections included
edamame, pak choy, oriental
spinach, snow peas, oriental
eggplant, edible luffa, baby
pak choy, napa cabbage,
perilla, oriental mustard and
malabar spinach.
Asian Indians want things
like eggplant, amaranth, bottle
gourd, cluster beans, fenugreek
leaves, mint leaves, mustard
leaves, ridge gourd, white
pumpkin and bitter gourd.
Mexicans prefer anaheim
pepper, calabaza, calabacita,
chili jalapeno, chili poblano,
chili serrano, chili habanero,
cilantro and tomatillo. Puerto
Rican are seeking aji dulce,
batata, calabaza, calabacita,
chile caribe, cilantro,
beierrjena, pepinillo and
verd6laga. Market research
showed that with many of
these products, there's a very
real shortage. This opportunity
has expanded with the
dramatic increase of
transportation costs which has
negatively impacted the
importation of ethnic crops
from other countries and other
