Union 4th and 8th
graders tied for first
in state, 10th graders
tied for second.

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
More than 90 percent of all
Union County students taking
this year's FCAT Writes
are at or above grade level,
according to scores released
Thursday by the Florida
Department of Education.
Most significant is that all
three of Union's schools
across the board scored above
the state averages.
Fourth, eighth and tenth
graders took the FCAT
writing essay test in February.
Students were randomly
assigned one of two topics
and asked to write a response.
Essays were graded on a six-
point scale. Students who
achieve the essay score of 3.5'
are considered to be writing'
on grade level.
The statewide average score
for tenth grade students was a
3.8, but Union County High
School tenth graders surpassed
that with a 4.0 average score,
the second highest in the state.
This year, 82 percent of UCHS,
tenth grade students scored a
3.5 or above, compared to 74
percent last year.
"The students at UCHS
have been preparing for the
FCAT Writes throughout the
school"year," said Principal
Alex Nelson, "and this year's
scores are a reflection of the
hard work and dedication of.
the students and teachers."
For eighth graders across
the state, the average score
was a 4.3 on the FCAT Writes.
Union County students topped
the state average with a4.7, the
highest in the state. Only one
other district, Martin County,
tied with Union County.
Ninety-four percent of eighth '
gridedrgtested-at Lake Butler.
Middle School scored a 3.5
or above, compared to 92
percent last year.
School Principal
Russell Larramore said the
administration was very proud
of his eighth-grade teachers
and students, particularly
of the fact that. 14 students
scored a perfect 6.0.

separate incidents.

BY TERESA STONE

Times Staff Writer
An anonymous tip was
called into the Union County
Sheriff's Office in regard to
a Lake Butler man who was
growing marijuana inside his
residence.
Officer Brett Handley and
Investigator Jerry Feltner
went to the residence on
April 20 and after identifyifig
themselves, advised Joshua
Jaye Thornton, 20, they had
information that he was
growing marijuana. Thornton
admitted that he did have
some illegal plants growing
behind his residence and
showed them to the officers.
Feltner and Handley said
they observed four marijuana
plants approximately two feet


tall hidden in tall weeds.
When asked if there were
any other plants, Thornton
stated there were more inside
the house and took the officers
to a bedroom closet containing
a large budding plant and
seven smaller plants insulated
with mirrors and aluminum
foil. The officers said they
also observed numerous bags
of potting soil and fertilizer
located in the bedroom along
with indoor growing lights
on timers and an automatic
watering system. Also
allegedly found in the area of
the plants was loose marijuana
that was being.-dried out.
Thornton was, then asked
if he had ahy marijuana
on him and he allegedly
removed a smoking pipe and
approximately two grams
marijuana from his pocket.
Thornton also turned over
other smoking pipes he had
at the residence. He was
charged with cultivating and
possession of marijuana.

Much of the success of the
students can be attributed to
the support of Superintendent
Carlton Faulk. Several years
ago, the district began Tiger
Writes, a monthly ,writing
prompt given to students in
all grades. Teachers collect
these essays and give them
to Faulk, who said he reads
and comments to teachers on
each and every one of them
as a way to see what methods
teachers are using that are
working and ,encouraging
students.
"I am continually amazed
at the writing abilities of our
students," Faulk said. "I see
where these students continue
to improve month after month
and year after year."
Faulk credits the student
success to having a great staff
of teachers who have a knack
for motivating the students to
write and express themselves.

SFCC benefactor Watson dies


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
A founding figure in
Melrose and Keystone Heights,
businessman and philanthropist
Al Watson has died. He was
94 years of age, though most
would have guessed he was in
his 70s.
Watson passed away last
Monday after spending only a
few days at Haven Hospice.
He was a member of the
Keystone United Methodist
Church and a founding member
of the Keystone Heights Rotary
in 1948. He was honored for
his Rotary service at the club's
'60th anniversary last year.
For 40 years, Watson's
Grocery was the area's leading
food store. But Watson will be
most remembered by today's
generations for his nearly $4
million contribution to what
was Santa Fe Community
College.
It was at Watson's
suggestion that the college set
up a second Bradford County
satellite campus, just outside
Keystone Heights. Watson
contributed additional funds
for scholarships. The center


was named in honor of Watson
and his wife, Agnes. Watson
also encouraged the college to
offer four-year programs.
In 1938, Watson. opened
a grocery store in Keystone
Heights. Many members
of today's older generations
worked at the Watson store, and
more than a few have recalled
the work ethic and business
skills they learned under the
Watsons' tutelage.
Watson told the Rotary and
others that much of his wealth
came, not from his grocery
business, but from investments.
Family member Huntley
Redfearn said on Tuesday that
Watson invested early in items
he saw were selling well at his
store-like Dial soap or Pepsi.
He told the Rotary last year he
had invested in well chosen oil
stocks.
The Watson family
contributed funds to many--
probably most-worthy causes
in the area, including Lake
Area Ministries or building
projects at Keystone Heights
High School.
Through the Rotary
International Foundation.,
Watson made contributions to


support theconstructionof wells
in Haiti and the eradication
of cancer worldwide. He was
a scoutmaster and sponsor of
local Boy Scout troops while
still in his 80s, and a staunch
supporter of Haven Hospice
and the Clay County Salvation
Army.
Watson traveled widely
and enjoyed seeing his travels
recorded in the local paper,
because, he said, he wanted
elderly people to know there
was more to life and being a
senior citizen than staying at
'home in a rocking chair.
,He lived up to his word
with trips to the America's
Cup Regatta, to Colorado, the
Caribbean and Key West. A
few years ago, he met with,,
heart surgery pioneer Michael
DeBakey during his travels.
One cruise ship declared
Watson the oldest passenger
ever to go down the ship's
water slide. In Key West, he
tried unsuccessfully to pet an
iguana.
'Until recently, neighbors
spotted him walking his
dog, Peppy,. around the

FPL here today to

discuss proposed

pipeline project


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Florida Power and Light is
holding an- open house this
evening so citizens can find out
information about a new natural
gas pipeline it plans to construct
up the east coast of the state,
beginning right here in Bradford
County.
The open house will be from
4-8 p.m. tonight, Thursday,
May 7, at the Charley E. Johns
Conference Center in Starke.
The nearly 300-mile
underground pipeline, which
FPL is calling the Floridaf
EnergySecure Line, will pass
through a number of counties- 14
in all.
The line begins at the Florida
Gas Transmission Station north
of Brooker and travel east 17
miles, passing north of Hampton
and Theressa and entering
Clay County north of Keystone
.Heights area.


From there it goes through
Putnam, Flagler and down the
east coast. It will end at FPL~s
power generation plant in Martin
County.
It is estimated that 90 percent
of the $1.5 billion project will be
built on FPL right of way.
According to FPL, The project
will include construction of a
compressor station in Bradford
County and two lateral, lines that
connect to Cape Canaveral Next
Generation Clean Energy Center
in Brevard County and Riviera
Beach Next Generation Clean.
Energy Center in Palm Beach
County.
FPL has been conducting
meetings in the project area and
promoting the pipeline with the
promise of jobs, tax revenue
and increased energy security.
Representatives say the initial
taxable value of the Bradford
County portion of the pipeline is
$104 million.
Over 40 years, FPL said the

become


issue ac
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
An old controversy reared
its 'head at the Bradford County
Commission meeting Monday,
but while nearly three years have
passed, there are questions that
still have to be answered about
the potential move of a drainage
ditch on private property and
what the county's role should be,
if any.
Jason Jennings, who lives off
of Northeast 154th Street (which
extends East Bessent Road
outside of the city limits), said
he has spent around $30,000 in
engineering and other costs after
being led to believe the county
would reroute a drainage ditch
further from his home, which
is threatened when heavy rains
cause the ditch to flood.
Now, he said, the county is
backing off of its commitment.
The county has its reasons
for not wanting to get involved.
For one thing, it isn't absolutely
clear that moving the ditch would
benefiteveryone.Infact,a number
of residents spoke out against
moving the ditch in 2006, fearing
any change would endanger their
properties. Commissioners heard
these complaints and don't want
the county to be liable for any
changes that cause properties to
flood in the future.
Then there is the question of
ownership.. Originally it was
believed the county owned the
ditch and neighboring land. In
fact, 'the former county manager
even had the road -department
begin work on moving the ditch
before residents complained to
the commission (and before the
county had a permit from the
water management district to
move the ditch).
Even if the county did dig the
ditch decades ago (something
else that is not known for
sure).g and has maintained
the ditch periodically, it now
appears Florida Dirtment 'of
Transportation owns the ditch,
which crosses state and private
property..
It's not uncommon' for
government agencies to work
together, but Bradford County
commissioners say the county
doesn't have the money to
begin maintain state drainage
ditches and doesn't want to set a
precedent.
Furthermore, since the land
does not belong to the county
and the water management
permit -it received has been
revoked, Jennings has had to get
an easement from DOT to work
on the ditch and is in the process
of applying for his own permit
approving redirection of the
ditch. But if the county performs
the work, it would .be doing so
on private property, and that is
illegal.
Jennings argued, however,
that he would not be the only
property owner benefitting from
the project. The proposed ditch is
safer than the current one, he said,
adding the water management
district wouldn't issue a permit,
otherwise.
"According to the engineer,
we're helping everybody by
doing what we're doing at our
expense," he said. That includes
widening the ditch and giving up
land to create a retention pond
for any overflow from the ditch.
Jennings said until recently
county representatives
encouraged him to proceed with
engineering and other -work,
including the former county
manager, Jim Crawford,- and
Brad Carter, the current county
manager. He said the county
agreed to dig the new ditch
because digging and maintaining
ditches is what it has done for
years.


.Only. recently did Carter tell
him the county would not be
involved in relocating the ditch,
so Jennings appeared before the
commission to find out what has
changed.
Commissioner Ross Chandler
said in the past the county
believed it owned the ditch
and had the responsibility for
maintaining it.That is not thecase
and that is what has "changed the
dynamics," he said. The county
began the project with good
intentions and the desire to help
residents, but the county can't


s' ditch


s an


lain
work on a private ditch any more
than a private road, he said.
County Attorney Terry Brown
said it's not the county's practice
to spend taxpayer money to do
private work or work for DOT.
There are a lot of ditches in
the county, be they privately
or publicly owned, and a lot of
drainage issues.
"We have to be careful about
what precedent we set," said

BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
FCAT writing scores were
released last week, the first
in a handful of scores area
schools will receive over the
next few weeks.
The FCAT writing
exam is given to students
in grades four, eight and
10 and assesses skills in
narrative and expository
writing. The intent of the
ICAT program is not only to
measure individual students,
but writing programs at the
schools as well.
The exam measures
students' ability to focus,
organize and support their
writing and also measures
their facility with. what are
now called conventions:
grammar, spelling and
punctuation.
Keystone Heights
Elementary School Principal
Mary Mimbs said on Tuesday,
"Students in all three Clay
County Schools did great.
McRae was also very high;
the eighth grade students also
scored well."
Melrose Elementary
students also scored at or
above the state average on
most 'measures. Eighty-five
percent of students scored
at least a 3.5-which was
exactly the Melrose score.
Melrose fourth grade writers
seemed to prefer narrative,
versus expository writing,
with higher scores on the
first style.
A score of 3 mgets the
standards for federal No
Child Left Behind legislation
and a 3.5 or higher meets the
Florida A+ Plan for school
grading.
Speaking for the School
District Ben Wortham,
superintendent of schools,
said "I am extremely pleased


with the FCAT Writing scores.
Our children performed well
under a dedicated group of
teachers and administrators."
High performers in Clay
County included Keystone
Heights and Orange Park
Elementary, where 100
percent of the students scored
a level 3 or above.
Students at KHES didn't
show big gains over last
year's score-they almost
didn't have to.
"We had some of the
highest writing scores in the
county last year as well,"
Mimbs said.
"Our fourth grade
(teaching) team makes
writing a priority until test
time in February. The kids
also get a lot of pleasure out
of writing so they're more
relaxed when they take the
exam."
Ninety percent of students
in all Clay County junior
high classes also scored a
level 3 or above.
As sometimes happens
with comparisons between
elementary and high schools
scores, junior high students
sagged a bit and 10tn grade
students at KHHS were
below statewide levels.
While 61 percent of
students statewide had
4.0 scores or higher, only
41 percent of students at
KHHS had the higher scores.
While 77 percent of students
statewide met the Florida
A+ Plan standard, at KHHS
only 62.percent made the 3.5
score.
Asked to what she attributed
her school's success, Mimbs
replied, "Continuity (in
teaching staff) is definitely a
benefit. Fourth grade teachers
at KHES work together as a
team,although teachers at that
level are often moved around

BY JUDY HARDEN
Special to the Times
After complaining of a
persistent sore throat and
difficulty swallowing, 13-year-
old Vanessa West awoke one
morning and found a large
lump on the right side of her
throat. 'Following a biopsy,
doctors told West and her
mother, Carpl Bello, that she
had papillary thyroid cancer,
requiring surgery to remove her
thyroid.
In 1988, Vanessa was 17
and began experiencing severe
menstrual cramps, fatigue and
weakness. She was evaluated
at Nemours Children's Hospital
in Jacksonville and diagnosed
with-small cell ovarian cancer.
Additional treatments and
consultations at Baptist Hospital
and University Hospital were
fruitless. She was told that all
medical methods had been
exhausted, but West and Bello
refused to give up hope.
Vanessa was referred to
Stands at the University of
SFlorida,, where physicians
reviewed her case and felt


BUST:.

Just two days later on April
22, Feltner went to a residence
on 48 Terrace in Lake Butler
in reference to a complaint call.
As he approached the door,
Feltner said he could smell
a strong odor of marijuana
coming from the residence.
Feltner said he knocked on the
door and was invited to come
in by the homeowner. Feltner
knocked again and was told to
come in.
Upon opening the door,
Feltner -said he observed
Kelly David Hall, 19, holding
a marijuana cigarette with Na
'wooden box sitting in.front of,
him containing what appeared
to' be marijuana. With Hall
was the homeowner, Trampas
Drawdy, 40, and Christina
Ketzenberg, 22, who did not
live at the residence.
Feltner -said he twice asked
the group who the marijuana
belonged to before Ketzenberg
allegedly stated that it belonged
to her. Drawdy allegedly stated
that the drug paraphernalia
belonged to him. However,
Feltner said, all the items were
in front of Hall. Hall allegedly
stated that he was about to "roll
a joint" and they were going
to smoke it prior to Feltner
coming in.
Feltner placed Hall under
arrest for possession of less
than 20, grams of marijuana
and possession of drug
paraphernalia. Drawdy Was
issued a notice to appear in
court for possession of drug
paraphernalia and Ketzenberg
was also issued a notice to
appear for possession.
On April 29, information that
marijuana plants were growing
near the Santa Fe River in
Worthington Springs led to
the arrest of Timothy Matthew
Ward.


that she would be a good
candidate for a new treatment
that required a combination
of radioactive iodine and
chemotherapy, treatments.
The research program was
funded in part by a research
program supported by former
President Ronald Reagan, who'
approved $1 million in aid for
the program. With her mother's
consent, West volunteered for
the program.
By this time, the tumor
had grown to the size of a
honeydew melon and weighed
nearly 10 pounds. During the
surgical procedure, the tumor
burst, creating yet another life
threatening problem for West.
All of her non-life sustaining
organs, such as her gall bladder
and a large portion of her
intestines had to be removed.
Due to the intensity of the
cancer, West is now required to
take 10 prescription medications
on a daily basis.
In July of 2008, Bello began
to experience pain and flu-
like symptoms with difficulty
breathing. The problems
persisted and she eventually
sought medical treatment.
Bello was told she had a cold
and upper respiratory infection,
however, just a few days later,
she awoke unable to breathe.
She was admitted to a local
hospital and diagnosed with
chronic -obstructive pulmonary
disease (COPD) and cancer of
the upper right lobe of her-lung.
Bello was transferred to Shands


Drug Enforcement Agency
agents allegedly observed
Ward, 41, tending to the plants.
Ward was approached by the
DEA agents and Garry Seay
of the Union County Sheriff's
Office and allegedly admitted
the plants belonged to him.
After being advised of his
rights, Ward showed Seay and
the DEA agents an area where
he was growing other marijuana
plants in his back yard.
. There, officers found six
marijuana plants that were
approximately six feet tall

(According to a friend, Karen
Lake, a succession of Watson's
dogs were named Peppy.) He
was one of few men in the
area who owned his own kilt-
and wore it to Rotary golf
tournaments on a dare.
Watson and his late wife,
Agnes, had two children,

Hospital for more tests.
Due to the location of the
cancer, Bello was told she
had inoperable cancer. In
an attempt to slow down or
destroy the cancerous growth,
she underwent aggressive
pinpoint radiation blasts in
October 2008. She was given
six months to live.
Being strong in her faith,
Bello said, "God gave me a
birth date and only God can
give me an expiration date. I
don't see that stamped on my
foot anywhere."
West has since moved in with
-her -mother and the two act as
each other's caregiver and best
friend. Like so many others,
cancer has put a financial strain
on the mother and daughter.
Income has been reduced to
Social Security disability and
West has begun to sell many of
her possessions, to provide for
other living expenses.
The ladies spend -most of
their week traveling from
doctor to doctor and from one
treatment center to another.
Friends don't visit much, and
visits from relatives are short in
time. They both look forward to
the regular visits froni Hospice
and a chaplain.
Now, at the age of 38, West
found out that her cancer had
metastasized to her neck, and
is currently undergoing tests to
determine the severity of this
latest find.
Through it all, West and
Bello have remained strong in


along with another 25 plants
that were each about two feet
tall close to the river.
After officers removed the
plants for evidence, Ward took
them inside his residence where
they removed a bong pipe, other
small pipes used for smoking
marijuana and two shoe boxes
containing marijuana. In all,
Seay stated that 41 plants were
recovered. Ward was arrested
for cultivating marijuana and
possession of more than 20
grams of marijuana.


Watson Jr. Agnes died in 2006
at age 91, after an extended
illness.
A visitation is scheduled

from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Funeral
services will be held at the

Lawtey mom to spend Sunday serving family, country


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
'Beth Hamilton's children
will not be able to give her any
cards or presents in person this
Mother's Day, but don't think
she won't receive anything.
Her children and husband, Bill,
keep the postal service pretty
busy as she is inundated with
mementos from home.
Beth, who has six children
with Bill ranging in age from 3
to 17, plus another son, who
just recently turned 20, is
currently serving a one-year
tour of duty in Iraq with the
146"h Expeditionary Signal
Battalion. She was able to visit
with her family in person
recently, as shte was on leave,
but she is back overseas.
"It's kind of difficult," she
said. "You know the family's
going through things, but
you're just trying to do your
job. They have birthdays. They
begin to drive. They become
teenagers. My 3-year-old has
become very independent.
"You don't really know all
that until you come back and
you see a little bit of it."
In today's world, service
men and women find it easier
to stay in touch with families.
Beth utilizes e-mail and Skype,
an Internet program that allows
for free long-distance phone
calls.
And there is still so-called
"snail" mail. Bill said he tries
to send Beth a post card or
letters from the children every
day., The two youngest
children-3-year-old William
and 7-year-old Kymber-are
always drawing pictures or
grabbing things at home they
want to send to their mother,
so sometimes Bill will mail off
a box full of items.
It's enough to make Beth's
fellow service men and women
feel a bit envious.
"They're jealous of her,"
Bill said. "She gets a package
about once a week."
Beth said, "They told me if I
got any more mail, they were
going to send me back home,"
which prompted Bill to
announce his intentions of
increasing the volume.
"I'll have to charter a plane
for the next load," he said.
In reality, though, Beth, who
lives in Lawtey, won't be
returning home until her
deployment is complete. She
has served overseas before,
participating in Desert Storm,
but then, her only child was
her son, Richard. Now, Beth
has six other children-five of-
which are still at home-to
think about: Megan, 17, Leslie,
16, Brian, 15, Raelyn, 13,
Kymber, 7, and William, 3.
_ -As- the day unfolds, Beth
said she thinks about her
children and what they are or
should be doing at any.given
time.
"I wonder if Raelyn's


practicing her clarinet. I
wonder if Kymber's doing her
spelling words. I wonder if
dinner is being cooked. Brian's
in football now. I wonder if he
made it home from football.
"I think about stuff like
that," Beth said.
One might think it would be
especially difficult to miss out
on certain special occasions in
a child's life-a birthday,
losing a tooth, making a high
score on an important test, for
example-but Beth does not
differentiate those events from
any other. She simply misses
the everyday things her
children do. As she put it, "I
think everything they do is
wonderful."
If you talk to Beth, there is
no doubting that. She beams as
she talks about each child.
Leslie, for example, does
exceptionally well in her
medical skills class. Raelyn
has taken up playing the
clarinet, the instrument played when she was in
school.
Beth thinks about things like
that. She thinks about her
youngest child, William- and
how independent he has
become. The child wants to do
everything by himself, Bill
said.
Of course, when Beth shares
any stories about her children
with her fellow service- men
and women, she most likely
never refers to her youngest as
"William." His nickname is
"Pickle Bill."
"His nickname's 'Pickle'
because'he .likes pickles," Bill
said. "If there's a jar of pickles
in the house, he's going to get
it."
Beth does not seem to be too
worried about how the
household issurviving without
her as she said Bill is more
than capable of taking care of
things. He is "exceptional in
everything he does," she said,
whether it be balancing the
checkbook, cooking meals or
applying a bandage to a young
child's cut or scrape.
Well, there is Onrie thing Bill
does not do, as it turns out. He
does not fold clothes.
"I'll wash them," he .said,
"but I won't fold them."
That's a -minor quibble,
though, for someone who has
to assume the sole parental
responsibilities while his
spouse is away. As you can
imagine, the children
sometimes like to point out
that the way Bill does things is\
- not the way Beth would do
things. -
"I get that all the time," Bill
said, adding he can even get
onto the youngest children
about something aad they
reply with, "I'm telling
Mommy."
The situation is nothing new
for the Hamilton family. Bill,
who has served in both the

nabbed
BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
More than 30 Clay County
Sheriff's Office detectives
conducted a drug sweep
operation in Keystone Heights
last Thursday, April 30.
According to CCSO Public
Information Officer Mary
Justino, the sweep turned out
to be an unlucky break for two
additional suspects who tried
to rob a woman directly across
the road from where the
detectives had gathered.
A call came over police
radios at 8:30 a.m. that a
woman had been the victim of
an attempted armed robbery at
a Vystar ATM located on S.R.
100 in Keystone Village Plaza.
In less than 30 minutes,
deputies had located and
arrested the two men.
William L. Woody, 22, was


allegedly staking out the ATM,
while Michael R. Williams,
21, apparently waited in a
1986 Lincoln Towncar nearby.
The two Keystone Heights
men tried to coordinate the
robbery by phone and then
escape.
Armed and wearing a ski
mask, Woody allegedly
approached the victim.
However, the woman's
automobile doors were locked
and as the would-be robber
yelled at her to let him into the
car, she fled from the scene.
The suspects were spotted a
short time later by Detective E.
Twisdale.
The men are now in the
custody of the CCSO
robbery/homicide office. The
female victim was not injured.
The weapon was confiscated
and turned out to be a realistic-
looking black plastic pistol.
Each suspect was charged
with armed robbery.
Normally, there are only one
or two deputies at a time
assigned to the Lake Regio-n
area.
A charge of violation of
probation was added for
Williams on May 1.


Bar patrons
apprehend
burglar
In the early morning hours
on May 2, patrons of the White
Elephant Bar on S.R. 100 were
notified' by two teenaged
witnesses about a burglary in
progress at the BP Station on
C.R. 214.
According to the police
report, the teens stated they
were in the parking lot at the
White Elephant packing up
karaoke equipment belonging
to their parents. They saw a
"man leave the White Elephantl,.
walk to the BP Station and
begin pounding on the glass
front door. They heard the
glass break and one of them
saw the suspect enter the store.
The other had run inside the
bar to tell his parents.
Three of the adult patrons
left the bar and ran across the
street. where they allegedly


observed Skyler Wesley'
Coburn, 26, of Melrose
running through' the parking lot
of the BP Station.
According to the report, the
three men said they chased
Coburn and tackled him in the
grass behind the station. The
men stated Coburn hit his head
on a metal storm drain during
this altercation.
Clay County Sheriff's Office
Deputy B.M. Wase responded
to the scene and interviewed
everyone involved. Wase
reported that video
surveillance cameras at the. BP
Station backed up the stories
of the teenaged witnesses.
Deputy Wase also reported
that Coburn later admitted to
the burglary.
Coburn had allegedly
removed five bottles of Yellow
Tail wine from the business.
He was treated for his injuries
at Orange Park Medical Center
and booked into the Clay
County Jail on charges of
burglary of a structure and
petit theft.

If making a statement about

Dear Editor:
The issue regarding the
potential privatization of
Northeast Florida State
hospital (NEFSH)F in
Macclenny has generated a
peat deal of press and public
ppinion. Earlier this week, a
litter to the editor in a local
newspaper showed the level of
interest has extended outside
our state boundaries to
California.
Some have suggested that
privatization is a partisan
issue. Privatization is a
payerr issue and should only
be done if the taxpayers are
test served by this approach.
The. decision to privatize
shouldd be based on two things:
tiality of care outcomes and'
mist savings.
Regarding the quality of care

Hospital is recognized by
Florida Tax Watch for
sustained superior performance
management excellence. They
have received in excess of 125
Florida Tax Watch
productivity awards.
Northeast Florida State
Hospital and Florida State
Hospital are the only
Governor's Sterling Award
recipients within the
Department of Children and
Families (DCF). None of the
privately managed facilities
have received the Governor's.
Sterling Award.
In the past, before the
legislature would expand a
policy or program they would
generally seek a study by the
legislative investigative arm
called Office of Program
Policy and Governmental
Accountability (OPPAGA).
There has been no study by
OPPAGA to determine what
impact privatization has had on
care.
Florida has 125,000
mentally ill persons arrested
each year. Of, this number,
17,000 are incarcerated in state
prisons, 15,000 in local' jails
and another 40,000 are under
probation and parole. The
Department of Corrections
(DOC) spends $68 million
annually for mental health
care, and DOC states that these
numbers have doubled since
2005 and now affects 17
percent of the people the DOC
serves.' We need to understand
the impact that privatization of
our state mental health
facilities in south Florida is
having on our correctional
systemf before .we, expand
privatization.: "
According to DCF of 1,300
discharges from state mental
health treatment facilities each
year on average we find 12
months following discharge
782 of these individuals were
reported to be living in a
correctional facility, -hospital,
nursing home, homeless
shelter or unknown.
Between 2005 and '2009,
DCF comparison data show
the number of harmful events
at NEFSH have been
consistently, and significantly
lower than privately managed
facilities. In the last year
alone, these data showed
NEFSH had 1.13 harmful
events per 100 patients served,
while the privately managed
treatment facility in South
Florida had 2.99 harmful
events per 100 patients served.
The proposal to privatize
NEFSH was presented on the
basis of $3.3 million in savings
for fiscal year 2009/2010. .Yet.
in November 2008, the
Department of Children and-
Families prepared a study on

As Senator, I am continually
visited by educators from our

host them for the day, and my
staff and I look forward to

in their respective classrooms.
Many of the educators who I
meet advocate for increased
funding for education, to

favor increasing funding for

in improving student
achievement? They do things a
little differently than most.
Let's look at how we teach
our students from a different
angle. Every day, new
technologies emerge that help
society function in ways we
would not have imagined just
twenty years ago. Why can't
we do that with our schools?
If need be, let's make revisions

leadership from our students.
I do not have all the answers
on which education reforms
will work best, but I believe
that in our state we have the
best teachers, the hardest
working staffs, and the
brightest students in the
country. I want to hear from
our students, teachers,
administrators, and parents this
year, and also next year, as to
how we can continually reform
our state's education system to
better suit the needs of our
students and our communities.
I remain, as always, open to
your input.

Life affords no higher

HAMILTON
Continued from page IlB

In broad terms, Beth is
serving her country, but she
prefers to think of her service
on a more local level. She
thinks of the community she
lives in. Though her civilian
job is at' Lawtey Correctional
Institution, she once worked as
a massage therapist at two
different businesses. She
remembers those people in the
community who supported her
then and those who support her
and her family now.
"I feel like I'm doing


something for them," she said.
Bill wishes he could still
serve. Unfortunately, within
two months of returning from
overseas, he was rear-ended in
a traffic crash that broke his
back.
"I'm just thankful I'm still
able to at least walk," Bill said.
"I was able to go back to work
at my civilian job (at the
Florida Department of
Corrections' RMC, West
, Unit)."
Bill and Beth both take pride
in the .fact that Beth's son
Richard has decided to serve
his country as a member of the
Air Force. Bill said he believes
he and, especially, his younger
brother, Charles, who is in the
Air Force, were influential in
Richard's decision.
"Richard always looked up
to (Charles) and talked to him
about a lot of things," Bill said,
Beth is a proud mom, not jut
because Richard is following
in her footsteps, but because he
ultimately made up his own
mind about military service.
"I'm glad he chose to do
that," Beth said. "I didn't push
him either way."
Will Beth be thinking of
Richard and her six other
children this Mother's Day? Of
course she will, but the day
will prove to be like most
others she has spent overseas.
She will work and call home
when she can. That is one
thing that has changed from
her time of service during
Desert Storm--communication
back home is so much easier
and convenient.
"When I was in Desert
Storm, you could make a
phone call, but it might cost
you $15," Beth said. "Now,
you can e-mail, you can use
Skype and you can still write
letters. You still get free mail
from over there. You can send
a free letter home every day if
you want to."
Pickle Bill takes great
delight in being able to sit in
front of a computer and
express his words to his
mother. Bill said every time he
sits in front of the computer,
Pickle Bill asks, "Is Mommy
on? I want to talk to Mommy."
"He'll make me go in there,
open up my e-mail and let him
just pick on the keys," Bill
said. "I'll ask him what he
wants to tell Mommy. He'll
tell me. I'll take his little
fingers and punch out the note
to Mommy. He likes doing
that."
The internet and e-mail have
made communication so much
easier, but Bill will also keep
taking advantage of "snail"
mail as well. You cannot stay
in touch too often.
"I miss her a lot," Bill said.

Autism Awareness Week. Monday was Wacky Hat Day,
for example, and students donated 50 cents toward the
cause to wear a hat to school. Tuesday was Sports
Day, followed by Hawaiian Day,. Pajamas Day and
Puzzle Piece Day. Loper said her goal was to raise


$400. "It was very successful," she said of the
campaign. Lawtey students will also take part in the

Indians win their second straight title


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Clayton Mosley drove in
two runs in a six-tun fourth
inning, while Bobby Dugard
and Michael Rothwell .
combined to pitch-a one-hitter
in the Keystone Hghhts.
baseball team's six-inning, 10-
0 win over Interlachen in t6e
championship game of the,
District 6-3A tournament.
"I'm so proud of this
bunch," Keystone head coach
Alan Mattox said. "They have-
worked so very hard to reach
this particular goal ."
Of course, as a state
semifinalist last year, the
Indians have loftier goals than
sir ply winning a district title,
but the team had to take care
of business in the district:
tournament first in order to
even be able to put itself .in,
position to go after another
Final Four appearance.
Pitching was a key factor.
Mosley got the Indians started
.in.the right direction, giving up
twob hits in a complete-game,
shutout oflPiersQn Taylor jin
the tournament semifinals.


Dugard followed on the heels
of that performance by
pitching 'shutout ball through
four innings against
Interlachen. Dugard, who
allowed just one hit, struggled,
though, to start the fifth inning,
walking the first three batters.
Rothwell then entered the
game. Though the Rams had
the bases loaded with no outs,
they. were unable to score.
Rpthwell forced the first batter
:he faced-Chris Wright-to
hit "a foul pop-up to Chase
Julius at first base. Matt Byrd
then popped up to shortstop
Chase Chambers before
Rothwell struck out Esteban
"Rodriguez on a full count.
"That was huge," Mattox
said. "That was a point in the
game where if Michael doesn't
do. a job there, the whole
completion of things
changes."
Rothwell gave up no hits in
two innings.
Wright had the only hit for
the Rams-a single in the
second inning-but that's all
Dugard allowed. He struck out.
seven of the 14 batters he


faced, including four straight
in the second and third innings.
, By that point. Keystone led
2-0 with an RBI single from
Mosley in the first inning and
an RB! double by Tyler Jolley
in the second.
Mosley, who went 3-for-4
with three RBI, had one of six
hits in the fourth inning to help
the Indians go up 8-0,
Keystone. loaded the bases
when Brantley Lott walked
and Jolle' and Ryan Latner
each singled. A ground ball by
Zak Davis drove in-one run,
followed by a single by
Chambers to score another.
Mosley then doubled to plate
two runs and put the Indians
up 6-0.
Dugard drove in another run
in the inning with a single
before Gerald Clemons
relieved Interlachen 'starting
pitcher Joel Palmer. Lee
Lambert, the first batter to face
Clemons, wa .able to beat out
an infield single to drive in
another run.
Rothwell face a jam in the
sixth wbena Wesley Tillis
reached on an error to tlad off


the inning and Blake Fuller
was hit by a pitch. He was able
to retire the next three batters
on two fly balls and an infield
pop-up.
Lott ended the game in the
bottom of the sixth, hitting a.
double into the gap in left-
center field to drive in two
runs and enforce the 10-run
rule.
Keystone finished-the game
with 11 hits. Jolley was 2-for-
3, while Latner was 2-for-4.

Indians advance with
shutout of Taylor
Starting pitcher Mosley
helped his cause with an RBI,
while Lee Lambert drove in
two runs in the Indians' 9-0
win over Pierson Taylor in the
semifinals of the District 6-3A
tournament. *
Mosley, who hit a sacrifice
to score one run, gave up just
two hits and one walk on the

BHS grad

wins back-

back pitching

awards
Florida International'
University junior Kasey
Barrett was named the Sun
Belt Conference Softball
Pitcher of the Week for the
third time this season and for
the second consecutive week
after a no-hit bid against
Florida Atlantic.
Barrett, a 2006 graduate.of
Bradford High School, had a
no-hitter with one out in the
seventh inning before an
infield single broke up the bid
in FIU's 7-0 win over Florida
Atlantic May 1. She allowed
no walks and struck out eight
in the contest for her 16t" win
of the season. It was Barrett's
18th complete game and fourth
shutout of the season:
"She was in total control all
seven innings against FAU,"
head coach Beth McClendon
said. "I think she's gotten
stronger as the season has gone
on. I think Kasey is throwing
her best right now and she will
put us in a spot to win the (Sun
Belt Conference
Championships) this week."
On May 2, Barrett went
eight innings, giving up one
earned run in the Golden
Panthers' 2-1 loss in nine
innings to FAU. For the
weekend, she had 14 strikeouts
and just one walk with a 0.47
ERA.
This is the fourth weekly
conference award for Barrett,
who won it once last
season. She joins Amanda
Nealer (2005) and Sarah
Belanger (2006) as the only
other FIU player to earn three
such awards in a season.
Barrett went 2-0 against the
University of Louisiana at
Monroe in winning the award
the previous week. She gave
up eight hits total in the two
games, only one of which went
for extra bases, while striking
out 12,.She had an ERA of
0.82.

Union County High School senior Sharmaine Couch (seated, right) recently signed
a letter-of-intent to play basketball at Florida Community College at Jacksonville.
She is joined at the signing by FCCJ head coach Debra Woods (seated next to
Couch) and grandmother Doris Thomas, brother Jailon Couch and mother
Demetrius Thomas (back, I-r).


Union County senior Couch


to play basketball at FCCJ


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A high school student's
senior year can be full of many
special events, but Union
County's Sharmaine Couch
can think of nothing better
than receiving a scholarship
and having the chance to
continue both her athletic and
academic pursuits at the
collegiate level.
Couch signed a letter-of-
intent to play basketball at
Florida Community College in
Jacksonville (soon to be
renamed Florida State College,
pending legislative approval)
April 20.
"It's a great feeling," Couch
said. "I just think "it's one of
the greatest accomplishments a
senior can have."
Couch, who averaged 18
points, eight assists, seven
rebounds and three steals per
game, helped lead Union
County to two straight district
championships and two
straight appearances in the
regional semifinals. She
averaged 12 points in twp
district tournament games and
two -regional ,pgoIff-glnes in
2008, whil, is.astar shk
averaged 20 points in two
district tournament games and
two regional playoff games.
Those kinds of numbers are
appealing to FCCJ head coach


Debra Woods, but she said it is
Couch's "total character" that
appeals to her more' than
anything. Woods sees Couch
as a player who will be good
for team chemistry, something
she said was lacking in this
past season's FCCJ team.
"She is a fit for what we're
trying to do," Woods said.
Couch seemed to make an
impact at team tryouts. Woods
said a lot of the players liked
Couch.
"She's one of those people
who draws other kids to her,"
Woods said.
Couch will be looked upon
to play shooting guard, though
Woods said she .will possibly
play some at small forward
due to her versatility.
For her part, Couch said she
is ready to step into the
shooting guard position and be
the type of aggressive scorer
Woods is looking for.
"I really would like to help
the team in that area," Couch
said.
Woods said she would also
. like to work with Couch on
improving her ball-handling
skille-because she(_44e Couch-
can. al.o 6o araEa .- ll '-tti-'
point guard position.
Couch said ball handling is
one of the areas she wants to
work at improving in. She said
she will continue to work on


her jump shot as well.
Woods said she has no doubt
that Couch will put in the
necessary work. Couch seems
to her to be the type of player
who will listen to instruction
and then follow it.
"Sharmaine strikes me as a
coachable kid," Woods said.
Couch has already been
working on improving her
game. Last summer, she
attended three camps so she
could work on her
fundamentals. Those
experiences helped her
continue her growth as a
player, but she also credited
her head coach at Union for
her development.
"Coach Tron Griffin did an
awesome job of just pushing
me and encouraging me to do
better," Couch said.
Couch is grateful to the
coaches, school administrators
and family members who have
helpecher fulfill this goal.
"It has always been a dream
of mine to play basketball at
the next level," Couch said.

Continued from page 5B

Trinity pulled the -game out
with a close play at home
plate. Trinity loaded the bases
off of two hits and a walk
before scoring the game
winner.
It was another strong
performance from pitcher
Jessica Knight, who allowed
her first runs of the postseason.
She gave up just five hits and
got some solid defensive plays
behind her, including leaping
catches by infielders Chelsea
Cravey and Ryan Story and a
catch in center field by Kari
Minor that robbed the host
team of a home run.
Conversely, Keystone had
10 hits, but the Indians could
only score in the top of the
first. Chelsea Harvin had a
lead-off single and advanced
on a sacrifice by Cortney
Casas before scoring on a
passed ball.
"We did what we could,"
,+Smith said.
Harvin finished the game 3-
for-5, while Kelsey ,Waters
was 2-for-4.
Trinity, which had two


doubles, got two hits from
Hannah Martin.
Trinity (24-4) now plays
Bolles (24-7) in a state
semifinal game Monday, May
11, in Plant City, while
Keystone ends its season with-
a 24-6 record.
Overall, it was quite a year,
Smith said.
"It was fantastic," she said
of the season. "(The players)
gelled as a team. They went
out there and worked hard all
season long."

Indians shut out
Devils in semifinals
Minor drove in three runs,
while Knight gave up just two
hits in the Indians' 10-0, six-
inning win over the visiting
Williston Red Devils in a
Class 3A-Region 2 semifinal
game May 1.
Chandler Singletary, who
was 3-for-3, got the Indians
started when she led off the
third inning by hitting the first
pitch she saw into left-center
field for a double. Consecutive
bunts by Becca Heavrin and
Harvin allowed Singletary to
score. Heavrin, wh, reached
safely un her bunt alCInpL,
scored on a passed ball to put


the Indians up 2-0.
Minor drove in her first run
with a single in a three-run
fourth. Minor also scored on
the play after Williston
committed throwing errors at
first and second. Waters,, who
drew a walk, scored the 'third
run of the inning on a single by
Singletary.
Keystone added two runs in
the fifth, getting an RBI double
from Minor and an RBI single
from Waters.
The game ended in the
bottom of the sixth when the
Indians scored three runs.
Knight hit a single to score
both Harvin and Casas, While
Minor put an end to the game
with a sacrifice fly that scored
Knight.
Minor finished the game 3-
for-4, while Casas was 2-for-3.
In the circle, Knight struck
out six for her fourth
consecutive shutout.

"Mother's Day"
SToday, society places so much value on our profession. Just
Yesterday I asked a young lady what she did. Her answer was,
SI'm a homemaker. I told her that was great. But I wonder do we
truly value the role of motherhood.
I remember Dr. Dobson (Focus on the Family) said that when
interviewing prisoners that there was a great love for their
mothers but not much of a relationship with their fathers.
I know that during WWII many women were called to the
workforce because so many of our men were in the military.
And I know today many women are doing great work in our
workforce. But let us never ever devalue the role of mothers in
America. Where would we be? Our greatest sphere of
influence is our family. My mother made such an impact on me
and my sister and our friends. Being my Mom was truly my
mother's calling. And she did it to the best of her ability. The
Bible instructs us to honor our mothers and fathers. Of all the
blessings in my life my Godly mother was one of my
greatest blessings.
Thank you Moms for all you do. Thank you Mom (Bay) for
being the inspiration and encouragement of my life.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Tigers' season
ends in
district
semifinals
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Union County missed out on
a third straight appearance in
the regional baseball playoffs
after losing 13-3 to Interlachen
in the semifinals of the District
6-.3A tournament, which were
played April 28 in Pierson.
"I'm not sure," Union head
coach Brian Tomlinson
responded when asked what
happened to his team, whose
previous two games against
Interlachen were decided by a
total of, four runs. "I'm still
trying to figure that out.
Nothing good, I can assure
you."
It was not all bad. The
Tigers (10-15) got a 3-for-3
performance from Taylor
Chastain and trailed by just
two until the sixth inning.
Chastain scored the first run.
of the game. After two of his
teammates struck out, Chastain
singled to score Jake Prevatt,
who had reached on an error.
The Rams scored three in
the third, but Union made it a
one-run game when Prevatt
doubled to score Thomas
Cason.
However, Interlachen stored
three runs in the sixth and six
in the seventh.
"Their boys were fired up,"
Tomlinson said of the
Interlachen players. "They're a
team that plays pretty much on
emotion."
Prevatt finished the game 2-
for-4, as did Clinton Vaughn.

Tigers remain
competitive despite
being short-handed
at season's end
The Tigers lost three straight
games to close out the regular
season, but Tomlinson said his
team did well considering the
teams they and the fact they
did 'not have ti o starting
pitchers at their disposal.
"We were in every game,"
Tomlinson said. "The problem
was we gave up too many runs
to start with."
Union played larger schools
Santa Fe and Columbia as well
as P.K. Yonge, a Class 3A
playoff team. The worst loss
was 8-4 to Columbia. That was
a game in which the Tigers fell
behind 6-0.
Union trailed both Santa Fe
and P.K. Yonge by six runs'
before losing to each by one
run:
Cason made a couple of
brief appearances on the
mound, but Tomlinson resisted
using him for the most part,
saving his arm for the district
tournament. Also, starting
pitcher Kris Bracewell was
unavailable for one game due

LB student is master at music


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
A few months ago, 15-year-
old Matt Fisher went with his
dad, Scott Fisher, to a kickoff
event for the Lake Butler
Relay For Life. Matt gravitated
towards the stage where a
local band, Justus, was setting
up its equipment for a free
performance.
Band member James Crews
said that the band's regular
drummer couldn't make it for
the event, so one of the other
band members was sitting in
on drums. Seeing they were
shorthanded, Matt modestly
stepped up and offered to help
sound test the drums.
"During the sound test, we


could see he seemed to know
what he was doing and asked
him if he wanted to sit in on
a set," Crews said. However,
by the end of the second song,
the fill-in drummer was having
a hard time at it and the band
asked Matt if he wanted to play.
What followed was nothing
short of amazement.
"He was just incredible,"
Crews said. "Here Matt steps
up to the drums having never
played with us before hnd he
took over for the rest of the
show."
,. What the members of the
Justus band didn't know about
Matt was that he's what you
could call a drumming whiz.
Not only had he not played
with that band before, he'd
never even heard half the songs

Lake Area domestic abuse topic of meeting


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Last Thursday evening,
representatives from Quigley
House met with about 15 Lake
Region residents as part of its
action plan in Clay County
neighborhoods. The meeting
was held at the Lake. Hill
Baptist Church, and was hosted
by the church's single parents
group.
According to Richard Huling,
the subject came up because
many members of the church's
single parents group had been
touched by domestic violence.
' Tina Neas and other Quigley
reps said it was their fourth
community action meeting and
had the largest turnout to date.
They were pleased that more
than half of the audience Was
composed of young people in
their teens.
Some of the adults in the
audience said they had been
victims of domestic violence
and sexual abuse as a child
or as an adult. They brought
their 'daughters along because
they wanted them to know it
isn't 'normal to be beaten in
the home by people who are
supposed to love them.
When asked why he had
come, one young man said he
.wanted to learn how not to
treat his future wife. Quigley
House recommends replacing
violence and abuse with non-
violent techniques for conflict
resolution.


Of the approximately 443
Lake Region residents arrested
by the end of 2007, 60 arrests in
the Keystone Heights-McRae
area were for domestic abuse.
Alice Stiles, Quigley's
mental health counselor told the
Monitor that about five percent
of their clients come from
Keystone Heights. However,
since the area includes three
additional counties, services
may be provided to more
domestic abuse victims by
other agencies.
"Also, there are probably
many people that need services.
but don't come forward," Stiles
added.
About six months ago, Robert
"Sparky" Milam (not at the
meeting) came across a Web
site that calculated the crime
rate in areas by Zip code.
"Why is it that 32656 has a
crime rate twice the national
average?" he wrote in an e-
mail.
Why wasn't the sheriff doing
something about this? Why
wasn't the newspaper reporting
on the crime wave in his area,
he wanted to know.
Milam made contact with
staff at the Web site who replied
that when domestic violence
was removed from the data,
the 32656 crime rate is at the
national average or lower.
A 2007 Monitor article
found that assault and battery
accounted for 13 percent of all
Lake Region arrests, nearly all
of it due to domestic violence,


Stiles said she
had no figures on
the connection
between domestic
abuse and drugs
or alcohol, but
noted that a good
heuristic is that a
majority of abusers
also abuse drugs
and/or alcohol.
"However, it is
important to note
that substance
abuse does not
cause domestic
violence, but it
does exacerbate
it." Stiles said.
.At last week's
meeting, Neas
said that some
women stay with
the abusive male
because they
think of him as a
provider. "He's a
good father," the
women will say.
However, Neas
added that if a
male abuses the partner, there
is a 50- to 70-percent chance
he will eventually abuse the
children as well.
During the evening, Neas and
Stiles told the crowd that life in
homes with domestic abuse is a
psychological contest of power
and control, not a relationship
based on sharing and equality.
One partner in a domestic
abuse relationship uses mind
games and terror' to satisfy


Quigley House's Tina Neas

his-or her-need to control.
While it is clear that it
isn't always males who are
the control factor, it more
frequently is.
Stiles and Neas said some
domestic abuse comes from a
culture of male privilege. The
man treats the woman and any
children involved as objects
to satisfy his needs, including
everything from getting him
another beverage out of the
refrigerator to sexual pleasure.


Though parked in the
handicapped parking
spaces at Little Rain Lake
Park, Lee Peoples, left,
must travel 100 to 200
feet just to get to where
the rest of the group is
standing, about 15 feet
away.


When women
.- are the control
factor, the same
principles are
involved, Neas
said.
The man
or woman in
Now, control resorts
to looks or
gestures, they
may display
weapons, abuse
pets or children,
or destroy
household items
to intimidate
others in the
household.
T h e-
controllinrg
family member
leads the
submissive
partner to
believe that all
problems or
situations are his
or her own fault.
The controller
isolates family
members by cutting off
social contact with others, or
neutralizes them by telling
friends not to listen to him or
her because he or she is a liar or
is crazy. He or she threatens to
deny access to children or even.-
family pets to extort a desired
behavior.
He or she can use economic
control by' refusing to let the
partner have a job or know how
much money the family has to
spend and hlow it is;spent.
There is the much-discussed
tendency of women to leave the
home after a violent incident
only to relent and return,
sometimes with children. This
usually follows the abuser's
promises not to resort to
violence again. Naturally, the


cycle of violence soon begins
again.
Stiles and Neas said the
abuser can range from the male
who may not understand his
own actions, to con artists who
knowingly and deliberately
refine the techniques of abuse
to a high art while using the
partners a meal ticket.And then
there are crafty but disturbed
abusers with advanced mental
problems.
Keystone Heights
Emergency Planner and Clay
County Fire and Rescue
member John Ward said that
abused family members should'
always call the sheriff's office
first at 911. CCFR does not
answer domestic disturbance
injury calls until a deputy has
cleared the scene.
However, a safe house is
available to anyone, male or
female, who can get to the
Keystone Heights Fire Station
at 135 Flamingo St..Children
can also be accommodated.
SOnce at the station, refugees
from domestic abuse or violence
are then taken to Quigley House
facilities in the northern parts
of the county.
Quigley House has a 24-
hopr hotline. The numbers are
1' (800) 339-5017 (toll free) and
(904) 284-0061.
Strangers are lust friends I
haven't met yet.

What's wrong-

with this picture?


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
For Lake Region resident Lee.
Peoples, there's plenty wrong
in the photo above.
Peoples, now in his 40s, has
been wheelchair bound since
his high school years, due to
an accident at Keystone Beach.
He enjoys watching his nephew
and others play softball at Little
Rain Lake Park. But he has a
real problem with the park's
.handicapped accessibility.
As shown in the photo,
handicapped parking spaces are
in the middle of the parking lot,
but there are no ramps in the
immediate area to get up to the
sidewalk,
To get out to the playing
fields, Peoples and others in
scooters or wheelchairs must
ride or be pushed to the.farthest
reaches of the parking lot, more
than 100 'to 200 feet' away,
where curbs are cut for access,
to the sidewalks.
"Why put handicapped
parking here and access to the
fields on the other side of the.
lot?" Peoples asked.,
Last week, Peoples and
others spoke with on-site park
staff. Park crews said they had
pointed out the problem to
management at Clay Parks and

Too often we underestimate
the power of a touch,
a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest
compliment, or the smallest
act of caring, all of which
have the potential to turn a
life around.

Epperson, 53, was shot and
killed near Valdosta, Ga. on
Dec. 25, 1885, while attempting
to arrest. a man wanted for
murder in Bradford County.
A Valdosta police officer with
Epperson shot and wounded
the suspect. He was captured
six days later and then hanged
on July 16, 1886.
Henry Epperson
Henry Epperson, 36, was
named to succeed his father in
office. He served the unexpired
term and was re-elected in
1888. He was killed on Jan.
20, 1890, while attempting to
arrest a notorious gambler in
Lake Butler. Epperson and a
detective from Waycross, Ga.,
were searching for another



DRUM,:
Continued from p. 1C

before that day.
"I just watched their hand
signals for when the drums
should start and stop then pretty
much faked it playing by ear,"
Matt said.
Matt has been playing the
drums since he was five years
old. His uncle Chris played
drums professionally in a band
and gave him a prized drum set
when he quit the band and set
off to law school. Scott Fisher
said he taught his son some
basic drum skills he had picked
up along the way when he spent
some time himself playing in
his brother's band. "The rest
he picked up completely on his
own, far surpassing anything I
ever taught him," said Matt's
father.
Turns out, being a self-taught
drummer isn't Matt's only
talent. Just this past Christmas,
Matt picked up a tennis racket
for the first time. While playing
a game of tennis with his dad
at the court in Lake Butler,
Matt said a tennis coach from
the high school saw him and
wanted to know how long he'd
been playing tennis.
"It was the first time I'd
ever played tennis!" Matt said,
"And when the coach found
out I wasn't old enough to play
Son the high school team, I was
able to get special permission
to join the team." He won six
out of 12 matches, so not too
shabby for a first time for a
beginner.
Matt said he also loves
to cook and whips up some
impressive meals' for the
Fisher family that includes his
dad Scott, who serves as the
minister at Lake Butler Church
of Christ, mom Michele, and
siblings Mira 6, Max 11 and
four-year-old Rhett. Matt also
gave middle school football a
try, but said he tired of doing all
the work at practice and being
left on the sidelines at games,
so he ditched the team and
threw himself into music.
In the band room at Lake
Butler Middle School, Matt
S:told band director Dirk Schmidt
"/ that he wanted to try something
new. Schmidt suggested the
trumpet. Matt said it took him
a day or so, but he's now a
trumpet player, too.
One day father and son were
jamming together-Matt on
the drums and Scott on the


guitar-but Scott said he kept
stopping at this one part in the
song that he was having trouble
with.
"Finally, Matt walked over
to me, took the guitar, started
strumming it saying, 'You're
playing it like this, but play it
like this instead,'" Scott said. "I
was like, Matt, you're playing
the guitar! That was the first
time he'd ever handled the
guitar and he didn't even realize


man when they
encountered the
suspect. Epperson
decided to arrest
the man on other
charges and was
shot and killed in
an exchange of.
gunfire.
The suspect
was convicted
of Epperson's
murder and
sentenced to death, but escaped
before the sentence could be
carried out. It is unknown if he
was ever recaptured. Epperson
was survived by his wife, two
sons, and two daughters. (More
than 26 years later, his brother
Will Epperson became sheriff
of Bradford County and went.
on to serve a 19-year career in
law enforcement.)
David Levy Alvarez
David Levy Alvarez, 46,
served as the town marshal of
Starke before being appointed
to fill the unexpired term of
Sheriff Henry Epperson.
Sheriff Alvarez was shot and
killed when he and a posse
attempted to arrest an outlaw
named Harmon Murray just
south of Starke on May 30,
1891. Murray was eventually
shot and killed by one of his
accomplices for the reward
money. Alvarez left behind a
wife and seven children.
Andrew J. Kite
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office Deputy Sheriff Andrew
J. Kite, 46, was shot and killed
on August 20, 1899, while
attempting to arrest a man in
Lake Butler. During the arrest,
two of the. man's brothers
opened fire on Kite, shooting
him four times in the back.
One of the men was convicted
of manslaughter and the second
was acquitted of the charges.
Kite had also served as town


he was doing it so naturally. We
both got a good laugh out of
it."
I Scott also told of a time he
and Matt were in a music store
when Matt spotted a mandolin
and the store employee asked
him if we wanted to play it. Of
course, he said yes, and, in his
hands, he began to make music.
The employee looked at Scott
and commented how good his
son was and wanted to know
how long he'd been playing.
"As far as I know, this is
his first time," answered Scott
laughing.
In asking what his favorite
instrument is, Matt said his
passion is definitely drums.
He admitted that a few of his
teachers get on to him from
time to time because he's
always tapping out a beat on
his desk or tapping his feet on
the floor, itching to be behind a
set of drums.
Along with-his close friend
and neighbor Bryce Henson,
both boys joined the Lake
Butler Middle School band
when they were in the sixth
grade. Now in the eighth grade,
Matt was recently chosen by
Union County High School
band director Kelly Do'sey to
be the front member of the high
school drum line. "Imagine
that," Matt said. "Me, starting
the high school marching band
and getting first snare in the
eighth grade."
Dorsey said, "Matt's a great
kid and he is working hard to
step up."
While Dorsey said there have
only been two other eighth
graders who have ever made it
onto- the snare drum in recent
years, there still are not very
many kids that even make it as
a freshman.
"He did a great jobduring the
audition process. It was evident
that he has been working very

Jeff Jones
Acting Starke
/ Night Marshal Jeff
Jones, 27, was shot
Nov. 19, 1903, and
died the next day.
Jones was shot
twice
by a man with a
pistol and killed
after responding 3
to a disturbance
at the J. Crabb's
saloon on Call
Street. No one was
ever charged with
his murder. Jones
was survived by
his wife and two
small children.
Henry 0.
Richarde
BCSO Deputy Sheriff Henry
0. Richarde, 32, was shot and
killed Nov. 19, 1903, by three
brothers who apparently had
a grudge against the deputy.
Richarde had accompanied an
attorney to the brothers" home to
discuss an upcoming legal case.
As Richarde and the attorney
left the home, the brothers
began to approach their buggy
with weapons; Richarde fired at
the brothers, who then opened
fire. The attorney jumped from"
the buggy and was not injured,
but Richarde was shot several
times and killed.
Deputy Richarde had served
with the sheriff's office for
several years. He was survived
by his wife, a daughter and two
sons.
Everett E, Johns
Everett E. Johns, 35, was
the father of. the state senator
and former acting governor,


am very proud of him, Dorsey
said.
No doubt, Matt is excited
about being a part of the high
school drum line. "We are really
motivated this year and I'd love
to be able to create a new.
cadence every week so we can
just keep growing and growing.
It's a really good group."


Charley E. Johns.
He was elected to
serve as Bradford
County sheriff and
later re-elected,
for a total of eight
years. After being .
defeated at the
polls, Johns was 9,..
appointed by his ".
good friend,Nassau ^"
County Sheriff
Higginbotham, to
serve as chief deputy
in that county.
p On Dec. 6, 1905,
just four months into
his new position,
Johns was murdered
on the sand dunes of
Amelia Island when
a man using the
name of Abe Brown
faked a warrant for
the arrest of another
for stealing fishing
nets valued at
$500.
When Johns failed to return
from the scene, a search was
undertaken and his body was
found two days later with a
bullet wound to the back of
his head. He had been shot
while riding in the buggy to
the scene.
It is believed that he was
killed to prevent his testimony
in a federal trial the following
day. No suspects were ever
identified or arrested for his
murder. He was survived by
his wife, two children and his
mother.
Joe Bennett
Two years after the murder
of Johns, his successor as
Bradford County sheriff, Joe
Bennett, was found dead of
gunshot wounds in mysterious
circumstances at his Starke
home in August of 1907.
Although some suspected foul
play, the death was presumed a
suicide for lack of evidence.
J.W. Langford
Bradford County Sheriff
J.W. Langford of Lake Butler
was appointed to fill Bennett's
unexpired term, then re-eleqted
in 1910. Langford was, in the
company of W.T. Andrews of

Worthington Springs when he
was shot and killed on Aug.

Starke
Recreation
summer camp
to have
different look
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
There are some changes to
this year's summer camp
offered by the Starke
Recreation Department, many
of. which were made to address
cost concerns in the current
economy.
The main change, however,
was made to create more
opportunities for those who
attend. This year's site will be
at .the R.J.E. complex, which
will enable the recreation
department to make use of the
gym for basketball and a field
S, for either kickball or softball.
"By that move, the
(recreation) board and city
S officials feel we will have
more room and opportunities
to offer more," said Alica
McMillian, recreation director.
Besides the department's
usual camp, which is for
children 6-17, there is a kiddie
camp for children 3-5. Both
are held at the same site during
June 8-July 31,- Mondays
through Fridays; from 7 a.m.
until 6 p.m.
The fee for. each camp is
$300. Parefits can either pay-
the fee in one lump sum or on
a weekly basis.
Costs are a concern to many
people right now. With that in
mind, the department has made
some modifications to its
camp. In the past, weekly, off-
site field trips were offered.
This year, however, there will
be a total of only four field
trips at a cost of $17 each or
less.
Children who do not
: : participate in the field trips can
:- still go to the camp site at the
RJ.E. complex as recreation
personnel will still be on site.
:* That was not an option at past
..... camps.
In past years, campers also
Sent to the movies every
week, but there will be a total
of just four trips to the movies
this year, though on-site
movies will still be shown
every Thursday.
"We pretty murh have
revamped the whole program
tcr make it cost-effective for
parents," McMillian said.
During weeks in which there
are no field trips, special
activities are planned such as
basketball and kickball/softball
tournaments, pizza parties,
Fear Factor, carnivals and
relays.
This year's camp' also
: features Wacky Wednesdays.
Every Wednesday will feature
"~" a different theme, such as
Wacky Shades Day or Wacky
Socks Day.
S Campers will be provided
with two hot breakfasts and
three cold breakfasts each
week along with, three hot
lunches and two cold lunches.
The recreation department's
summer softball program, for
ages 4-15, will still be offered
during June 15-24 at a cost of
$45. Children who are enrolled
in both summer camp and the
softball program will be
transported to both sites by the
recreation department.
"We've tried to make it as
convenient as possible for
everybody," McMillian said.
Scholarship and mini-grant
.: :opportunities are available to
'children who qualify. The
deadline to apply is Friday,
May 15. Applications may be
picked up at the recreation
office,' which is located in
Starke'scity hall. l
: For anyone interested in the
softball program, it is divided
': into the following leagues: T-
-. ,. ball (4-5), small fry (6-8),
junior (9-12) and senior (13-
..--15). Age-determining date is
June 8.
Softball clinics will be held
S on the following dates and
times: T-ball May 25-26, 3-4
. p.m., small fry May 27-28, 3-4
p.m., junior May 27-28, 4-5
p.m., and senior May 25-26,4-
(. 5 p.m. Players will be assigned
to their teams on the last day
of clinics.

either the summer camps or
the softball program, .please
