complaints received on the

Lake Butler resident has been

On Aug. 3, an undercover
officer with the sheriff's
department called Starling
who agreed to the negotiated
price of $150 to perform oral
sex on, him, then gave her
address as 75 South Lake
Ave.
According to the arrest
report, the undercover officer
arrived at the residence and
was able to positively identify
her from the Internet photo
and description she gave him
over the phone. The suspect
was charged with a third-
.degree felony for solicitation
of prostitution based upon
three previous arrests in other
counties for the same crime.
Coincidently, just a week
before this .took place,
Starling was picked up by
Union County authorities on
an outstanding warrant in
Alachua County. The nature
of that warrant was not
known at press time, but it is
not believed to have involved

Modifications made to student progression plans


IBY MARKI. ('RAVWFORI)
li'le.gralph I :/.'! r

ThIe Iiradlifor ('oiunl\ School
Board has re\ i\ewd and approved
changes in the plans that govern
student progression from one
grade to the next.
There are three different
progression plans, each based
on a range of grade levels. Some
changes spanned all three plans.
For example, the BRID(GE
program-an intermediate
disciplinary step that called for
brief assignment to the alternative
school-is no more. but space
was made for language regarding
the immediate admittance of
homeless students and assistance
with medical physical and
immunization documentation:
tinder other special
circumstances, temporary
Medical exceptions may also be
Granted for the immunization
' \nd physical requirements.
There were also changes
iade based on the transition in
some areas from Sunshine Stale
Standards to the state's Next
SGeneration, academic standards.
The Next Generation Sunshine
,Siate Standards referenced in
tle progression plans refers
to, revisions that are aimed at
preparing students "to effectively
Engage, communicate, and
compete globally with student's
around the: world:' or so .the
standards are described by
the i Florida Department of
Education.
Approved changes and course
descriptions can be reviewed at
SwwwIfloridastandards.org.
The evolution from progress
tests tothe more regularcollection
of student performance data
required for the implementation
of the district's Response to
Intervention programs has also
been noted in the new versions of
the progression plans.


Virtual Education
Each plan also includes the
state requirement, that school
district's provide for I'ull-time
virtual education. Northeast
Florida Education C'onsortium.
which covers Bradford and I Inion
counties. is coordinating this
requirement lir its members.
Though the enrollment period
was the month of JuIly. this may
be extended on a case-bh-case
basis.
The program is for full-
time students in kindergarten
through eighth grade, and for
those in grades nine through 12
so long as they do not meet the
requirements for the district's
dropout prevention program.
Virtual instruction students
are not home-school students.
but students of the district who
receive their education at home
via computer technology. It is
not for students who only want
to take select courses in a virtual
environment who may do so
through Florida Virtual School.
In order to participate in the
virtual education program,
students must reside in the school
district and have been enrolled
all of the prior school year and,
present during 'the October
and February student counts.
Students are otherwise eligible if
a parents a member of the armed
services or they were previously
enrolled in a virtual program run
by the school district.
Information on enrollment can
be found on the school district's
Web site at www.mybradford.us/
optional/parents.htm. For more
information, contact Assistant
Superintendent Lisa Prevatt by
calling, 904-966-6800.

Elementary School
Other than those mentioned.
there were few' changes to the
kindergarten through grade
five progression plan. The state


requirement for social promotion
was added for exceptional
education students, however.
anf that allows a student's
I FIP team to modify general
education requirements with
ESE benchmarks.

Middle School
Among the changes in the
progression plan for students in
grades six through eight.students
will be required cot complete one
semester of physical education
per year instead of 225 minutes
per week based on the number
available class periods.
Journalism and busi ness are not
offered at the middle school level
and were removed as possible
electives in the progression plan.
Agriculture courses have been
added, but not for credit.
Promotion requirements in
the plan \\ere clarified. Students .
who fail one or two courses
may be retailed and scheduled
for course recover\ to retake
those courses. II' one course is
successfully recovered prior to
the start of the next school year.
the student may be promoted to
the next grade.
Students who fail more than.
two courses must be retained.
The section on special
assignment was eliminated.
Students cannot skip a grade
because of the requirements to
pass certain core courses.
Other changes included the
modifications made to the
uniform dress code.

High School
Changes specific to the
progression plan for grades nine
through 12 included clarification
that home-school students are
under the same admittance
requirements into Florida Virtual
School. vocational programs and
dual-enrollment classes. The
definition of dual enrollment has


been modified to ref'llccl lic slate
definition.
( raduation requi reiicents we're'
expanded to allow Iorqtlualil'fing
scores on a; concordlinl lesi toe
suhslitute lor passing the I('AT.
Also. any student entitled to a
certificate of completion may
elect to remain in school as a
full- or part-time student lor up
to one year.
For the college hound or
those seeking a Bright Futures
Scholarship, the courses Algebra
IA and Algebra IB will only
county as one credit toward
filling the math. requirements.
(They will still count as two
credits toward graduation.) Also,
beginning this school year, all
students in the junior class will be
required to take a science course
during their junior year. the same
year they take the science portion
of the FCAT.
Agricultural science w\\ill count
toward this requirement.
Half-credit courses in health/
life management and computer
science/technology have been
deleted from the graduation
requirements. The courses will
remain available to pursue as
electives, however.
The high school progression
plan still outlines the number of
credits required to go from one
credit to the next. but it no longer
spells out from which types ofl
courses those credits must come.
i.e.. one math, one English. one
science. etc.
'The plan now allo\'s rigorous
international courses to be
counted in deciding the ranks of
valedictorian and s;lultatorian.
and it states that the high school
principal has the authority to
re\ ke senior privileges for I.c\ cl
II acts of misconduct.
There were also langutiage
changes in the sections related
to promotiion and assignmentl of

UCHS principal responds to article about tree removal


SDear Editor:
This,letter is in response to
the article in the July 30 Union
County Times titled, "UCHS
lost a bit of history when oak
trees were taken down."
As principal -of UCHS for
the past three years, I must
take exception to several
misrepresentations in this
piece. In the spring of this
year, one of our most beloved
teachers tripped on an uneven
sidewalk, fracturing her pelvis.
The sidewalk was pushed pp by
underlying tree roots.
Any time the safety of
students or school personnel
is in danger, immediate action
.is required. The two trees that
were cut down were nearing
the end of their life spans. The
maintenance department had
reported that many branches
were dead or dying and other


areas along the trunks were
.diseased.
Every strong wind would
shower the courtyard with
branches and debris. Some
branches blew onto the
rooftops and caused leaks
or damage to the drainage
system. I conferred with the
maintenance department and
then recommended to the
superintendent that the trees
should be removed.
I stand by my decision. I will
never jeopardize the safety of
students or staff by making
an irrational decision based
on emotions. To keep theses
trees when they posed a serious
danger to our students and staff
would have been criminally
negligent.
Secondly, decisions in which
student safety is concerned are
not open to debate. My primary


responsibility is to keep our
students ;and staff safe. The
superintendent and school
board, as well as, the parents
of 600 students, expect me to
give safety my full attention.
This responsibility I do not take
lightly. When people are more
concerned about trees than
human lives,. I think perhaps
their priorities'are out of order.
The article further states that
several students'were quick to'
point out other safety hazards
on our campus. I agree with.
this point. In fact,we all would
be hard-pressed to visit any
building over 10 years old arid
not find safety hazards. Even
our bwn homes are fraught'
with hazards.
What is not stated is that'
the Union County school
maintenance department is
constantly addressing these
issues. As our buildings age,


hazards develop. In a perfect
world in which our budgets
are not cut multiple times
each year, we would have the
manpower and bankroll to
keep a hazard-free campus. As
it is, I feel our under-staffed
maintenance department does
an exceptional job in keeping
our school campuses in good
operating condition.
Thirdly, let's look at how
the majority of our students
viewed, this situation. Most
of the students at UCHS have
a more rational view of this
event. Our Lake Butler FFA is
one of the best chapters in the
nation. Nearly one out of five
students is a member. These
students learn how to manage
our natural resources wisely
and efficiently. They understand
that plants and animals were
created for our pleasure and use.


They understand that in order
to have a steak dinner, some
poor bovine must lose its life.
They also understand .hat when
disease attacks, sometimes the
only option is to cull the herd.
It's not surprising that none of
our FFA students complained
to me about the trees.
I did have twoorthree students
from the Environmental Club
speak to me regarding the trees.
I explained that I appreciated
the beauty of trees as much as
anyone, but this was a matter
of school safety. I find it very
strange that the classroom
debates that occurred did so
without anyone being invited
who held a different viewpoint.
This makes me wonder if these
debates were simply a one-
sided forum geared to hear only
the voices of dissent.
Let me finish by stating


that I am extremely proud of
our UCHS students. They are
genuinely concerned with our
environment and want to keep
the Earth God gave us in good
condition.
As principal of UCHS, I
commend your passion toward
your beliefs. I do believe
that someone has presented
these few students with an
unbalanced perspective on
this situation and perhaps has
injected some personal agenda
into an otherwise outstanding
education opportunity. I only
wish these adults and students
would spend this great amount
of energy in volunteering to
help keep our campus clean
and influencing others to do
the same.
Sincerely,
Alex Nelson,
Principal Union County

Spotlight on business: Elbeft Southall of State Farm


Agent knows
hard work,
perseverance pay
off in success

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN .
Times Staff Writer
Elbert Southall learned at a
very early age that hard work
pays off. He was only 10 when
his father died, and he found
.himself plowing fields at age
11. By 14, Southall was cutting
highway rights-of-way.
Growing up in a rural
southern Arkansas town
Southall described as being at
the bottom of the barrel, he had
no electricity until age six and
no running water or gas until
after he went off to college.
A timber company now
known as Georgia Pacific is
what kept 80 percent of the
townspeople employed,
and Southall knew that in
such a small town with little
opportunity, he was looking at
being a log cutter or hauler
for the,rest of his life. Not that
there's anything wrong with
that kind of life, Southall just
wanted more for himself, so he
did something about it.
"I know first hand you can
do something...anything, if
you want to bad enough," he
said.:
Southall played high school
football in Arkansas and
received a football scholarship
to play for the University of
Alabama where he majored
in English with a minor in
physical education.,
Southall went into coaching

Northeast Louisiana University'
before setting out into the
insurance business.
"I enjoyed coaching, but it
was so time consuming," said
Southall. "I had two sons at
home who barely knew who I
was."
It just so happens the
opportunity to go with State
Farm came at the time when he
knew he needed a change. He
was coaching the son of a State
Farm executive in Monroe, La.,
who convinced him to become
an agent for the company in
a little town called Dumas in
southeast Arkansas.
"I nearly starved to death for
five and a half years," Southall.
recalled, "but being in athletics
a long time, I learned to accept
defeat and tnove on. It's the
same in. business: either you
let it beat you down, or you
whip it."
Southall persevered until
finally the chance to make a
Better income with State Farm
presented itself in Florida.
'He relocated his family to
Gainesville to serve as State
Farm's district manager for
central Florida. .
Ten years later, Southall
returned to agency work in 1993,
after learning that Starke State
Farm agent Merritt Williams
was retiring, and that's where
he's been ever since.
"So far," Southall said,
"it's been a good 16 years.
Although Southall did work
hard and found a way out of his
small town through football,
he still attributes all his
accomplishments to athletics.
"Most of the jobs I've had
throughout my lifetime have-

He is a supporter of local
athletics such as the Bradford

supporter of the BHS baseball

from his various college
affiliations.
He and his wife, Pat, have
two successful sons, Pete and
Mike, along with a grandson
and four granddaughters.
Pete, 36, who lives in the
Dallas area, has been coaching
high school baseball for five
years. Southall said his eldest

Mike, 34, lettered in four

CLU, he is one of a prestigious
number of highly qualified
specialists who can provide
guidance in individual as well
as business financial estate and
retirement planning.
For someone considering a
career as an insurance agent,
Southall first recommends
getting a college education.
"With a degree, the demand
is more likely to be there,"
he said. "A degree shows
.that if a person can discipline
Themselves enough to go to
college and get a degree, they
are disciplined enough to be
self-motivated and would make

Unless ,pursued in college
curriculum, Southall said,
becoming an agent requires
state-approved classes
consisting of 220 hours of
coursework for property and
casualty insurance and another
40 for life and health insurance
before taking the state exam. .
If financing is available to
start a business, a person would

said Southall.
In the past 16 years in Starke,
Southall's State Farm office has
only had a turn over of maybe
six different employees.
"When you have the right

them the right- wages to keep

Local business and civic
leaders came together last
Monday, to jump start
fundraising efforts for the Lake
Area Ministries' building fund.
Kiwanis President Ken
Buckner led the group,
followedd by Rotary member
Chuck Willis. Also speaking
for LAM was Dr. Tom Farmer,
a retired Methodist minister
and a recent addition to the
food pantry board.
Attending were
representatives from theJaycces.
the Rotary, the Woman's Club,
the Shrine Club, the Lions
Club. the Melrose Masonic
Lodge, the Melrose Business
and Community Association,
AMVETS, the American.
Legion and others.
The day's topic was a golf
tournament to be held at the
Keystone Golf and Country
Club on Oct. 3.
Noting his contribution of
land on which to build the new
facility, the tournament will be
named in honor of the late
Bob Canady, co-owner of the
Keystone Building Center and
a Kiwanian.
Funds raised by the event will
be donated to LAM's building
fund. The fund-raising project
has been on-going for the last
three years.

space to store it.
LAM Co-Director ('hip
Wester recently pointed out
that because of the cramped
space, applicants are asked to
provide personal information
while seated in a small room,
surrounded by volunteers and
other clients.
These days, Farmer said, on
distribution days, men, women
and children are:lined up on the
sidewalk in the heat outside the
building.
During the Mbnday meeting,
a representative from the
Melrose Masonic Lodge,
which is located next door to
the LAM.facility, volunteered
private office space just for
receiving applications.
Some of the organizations
last ' Moiday had questions
and suggestions abo0it''the
event. Richard Judge, an
organizational state officer
representing AMVETS Post
86 volunteered supplies and
expertise that could be valuable
to the effort.
Tina Bullock' said Woman's
Club members might be able to
provide side dishes for an after-
golfiOg u lpcheoo.
Other organizations said the'
timing presented ,problems,

September.
IAM's fund-
raising goal
'has bounced
around over,the
years. First, the
stated .amount
\,as $500,000;
then it dropped
to $300,000 or
less. Buckner
told the crowd
the organization
is now trying to
raise $600,000,
although, he
said, they have
the equivalent
of as much as
$300.000 in
hand. Buckner
attributed at least
part of the costs Leaders fr
to county and raiser for
city permitting.
The costs and
Tund amounts
include the value of the donated
'property. LAM also owns its
current facility, which it will
sell when a new space becomes
available.
American Legion President
George Toth asked whether the
site was zoned for a building
of adequate size with space
allowed for the requisite
parking. Othersquestioned what

for a relatively straightforward
and simple space.
Buckner replied that
building size and planning and
zoning restrictions were still
in process. He also said he
hoped' construction industry
leaders might volunteer labor or
supplies, lowering the amount
of funds needed.
Rotary President Harold
Gilstrap asked whether LAM


would consider modifying
an existing building, to own
or lease, at another location.
Buckner said LAM had
investigated that possibility.
Among alternates that have
been mentioned over the last
three years were the Street
Graphics building, the former
Clay County health office, both
also on Commercial Circle, or


the unfinished city yard building
at K-Town Park on Sunrise
Street, behind Hitchcock's.
The group will meet again for
further planning next Monday,
Aug. 10. at the Lake House
Restaurant, Midway on S.R.
21, at 11 a.m. Other business
and government leaders and
the public are invited to join the
effort. A. luncheon is provided
at cost.

What's a certified public accountant and who should have one?


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
"I'm probably supposed to
say everybody needs a CPA."
said Rebecca Williams, with'a
laugh. She is one in Keystone
Heights,
Instead., she suggested,
anybody with any kind of
investments or who needs
anything other than a W2 for
tax preparation may need a
C'PA.
That includes some
individuals and all businesses,
she said, because the tax laws
are so complicated and things
change every day. To stay on
top of those changes you need
a professional who's working
for you.
In Starke, Lex Green said
CPAs are especially useful
to business owners who get
wrapped up in the day-to-day
profit and loss statement-
the record of expenses and
revenues-but the, sometimes
fail to interpret the bigger
picture of assets and liabilities
on the balance sheet.
A CPA differs from a tax
lawyer, because tax lawyers are
handy to have when someone is
in trouble, but don't generally
handle tax preparation.
Williams said.
Anyone can hangout shingle
and become an accountant or
bookkeeper, she added. You
can be an accountant without
any credentials or education.
Green said he provides full-
service bookkeeping, payroll
reporting, tax preparation,
and other counseling, but
he is also a certified advisor
'on Quickbooks, a computer'
accounting .program that he
said 90 percent of all small
business owners use.
Most of Williams' work is
tax preparation, but she also
consults on business plans, new
business starts,setting up books,

CPAs also get a broad
overview of an area's business
health and the community.
In the last five years,Williams
said the economic downturn
has been most evident to her
as people come and go, She
has seen a succession of clients
move into the area and open a
new business, only to find they
cannot succeed.
"There are only so many
lawns to mow in the Keystone
Heights area," she said. "I try
not to be negative; I don't like
to tell them their idea may not
work. But they are around for
a while and then I find out
they're gone."

the summer, is giving way
to one of a middle-class
and blue-collar bedroom
community. Make no
mistake, Williams said, the
wealthy arc still here, but
in ever-decreasing numbers
as they age and time moves
on.
This adds great weight
to issues like the quality of
the schools or the price of
gas. Schools attract younger
families, but not retirees.
And since there's really no
place in the area for people
to work, commutes are now
a necessity.
Green said the Starke
Business community is
hardworking and family
focused. He sees the
business community there
as one in transition as big
box stores like Walmart or
chain restaurants like Arhy's
move in.
Rather than being
adversarial, he said. it
usually works that big stores
C attract a wider customer
base to the area, which is
also enjoyed by smaller
businesses as well.
One of the biggest
problems for the business
community in Green's area is
utility rates, which force small
businesses to pinch pennies to
remain competitive.
However, this is a problem
often found in small counties,
Green said. To be successful,
a new small business owner
must sell a product or service
that fills a niche, one whose
absence would be felt if the
business went away.

Teacher wants students to 'experience' science


BY TERESA STONE

. Following 'a highly
competitive application
process, ILong was chosen as
one of 20 teachers oiut of 80
applicants from across Georgia
and North Florida to participate
in the grant-funded two week
long institute in Georgia.
O* EE 'provided an
opportunity for teachers in
grades K-,12 to collaborate with
the college's biology faculty
and gain new teaching methods
and investigative techniques in
science.
,. Whi-le there, 'Long learned

wvas certainly a big draw for'

classroom. (See related story
titled "What happened to our
.trees?")
"I fourd out during the last
school year w hen they executed
our trees in the courtyard that
some of the students were..
really passionate about it," said
Long.
"Now, after attending this
Workshop, I have learned
ways to give something back
io students who felt cheated
when the trees were removed.
-We can turn. this tragedy, into
something positive," Long
said.
:-The- culmination of the
two week workshop was that'
the teacher participants were
required to write a schoolyard
investigation plan for getting
students outdoors and
experiencing hands-on science
as opposed to memorizing a
bunch of data from a textbook.
Long said that on the last
day, each .participant's plan
was presented to the group..
"In essence, we all received
copies of 20 different ideas,"
said Long..
Long's schoolyard
investigation plan was called
"The Ag Pond,Dead or Alive?"
For anyone familiar with the
high school ag pond, the first
thought that comes to mind is
probably, "Gross."

Long thinks it would be an
excellent inquiry-based group
science project for students.
to investigate and determine
whether or not it is a healthy
pond.
"T'hen there are the extension
projects that will develop from
that," said Long. "Say we find
out the pond is in a nasty state
of. al'ffairs, so w\hat- atn \pe 'do ..
Id make it healthy again and
make it a vibrant part ,of the
school campus?"

For Lon g, who said he
searches for science based
workshops every summer, the
hig draw at Oxford w\as that it
offered science through inquiry,
or "hands on" instruction,
something students will stay
interested in.' Another thing
that drew his interest was that
the institute would be teaching
environmental education.
"One of the big things kids
are interested in today is the
environment. They hear about
global warming on the news
and about people ,who want
to save an endangered 'species
and that piques their interest,"
Long said.
On the first day of the
\workshop, Long and the other
participants were told to walk
around and make observations
at the college's 47-acre
reserve, complete with ponds,
a classroom and a lab.
While walking around, Long
would ask himself questions
such as, "What's over there?
What's under this rock? Why
are these little fungi growing
here and not over there? or
Why are ve finding roly polies
here, but not over'there?"
After developing questions,
participants would make a
hypothesis such as "Maybe the
roly polies need to live in the
shade because over there it's
too hot." Participants would
then go back out and test the
hypothesis and document the
findings.
Taking advantage of the
ponds on the reserve, Long and
the others used drag nets and
collected bug larva, small fish
and other samples of critters
and plants. The findings were
then studied under a microscope
and charts were made of the
discovered food web.
Long explained,"A food web
is very complex. For example,
humans eat vegetables of all
sorts and we eat fish and land
animals. If we lost oiie food
source, we could still survive
on another in the food, web.
With a food chain, if you take
one step out of it, everything
after it dies out."
The group also went to a
healthy stream and took a
number of samples, then
visited, another stream that


ran through what used to be in science."Every

Clemson seeks Heisman

recognition for UC's Spiller


BY CLIFF-SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Union County already, boasts
one highway sign-in
Raiford-that proclaims it is'
the home of NFL draft.pick
Gerard Warren. Could the-next
sign to pop up in the-county- -
proclaim it home of the 2009
Heisman Trophy recipient?
Clemson University has
launched a publicity campaign
for senior running back CJ.
Spiller, a 2006 Union County
High School graduate., The
university, with businesses
sponsoring the cost, produced
4,700 life-size posters of
Spiller. Of that number, 700
were sent to media. outlets,
while the remaining 4,000
were made available free of
charge .beginning July 22 to
the general public.
As it turned out, 4,000 were
not enough. The posters are
gone, though a school
spokesman, quoted in the
-South Carolina newspaper The
State, said more could be
produced pending sponsorship
to cover the cost..
U. until then, any fais wanting
posters can still get them,
though they will have to pony
up some bucks. As of Aug. 4,
one such poster on eBay had
received five bids, with a top
bid of $31. Two posters were
available for $30 each on
Craigslist.
Such response to a likeness
of one's image can be a little
surprising-or unsettling-but
Spiller seemed to accept it's a.:
simple matter of fact. That's
not to say he thinks he's such a
tremendous - athlete " that
everyone should want. hs-
poster., No, the ever-humble
Spiller said it just speaks to
how passionate Clemson fans
are.
"I know that we have a great
fan base," he said. "I know
they're very supportive of our
players:"


In fact, such support,
regardless of how successful
the Drocram is. is part of the
reason- why Spiller pulled a
shocker on National Signing
Day in 2006, announcing he
was eschewing Florida and
Florida State to go play for the
Tigers.
"That's one of the things
that drew me here," he said.
"The fan. base is unbelievable."
Those fans Would love to
cheer on one of their own in a
quest for the Heisman. A
couple of college football
publications-Lindy's and Phil
Steele, respectively- have
ranked Spiller as a t9p-10 and
top-20 Heisman candidate,
while Rivals.com lists Spiller
as its third most explosive
player behind California
running back Jahvid Best and
Oklahoma State wide receiver
Dez Bryant.
The competition for the
Heisman is stiff, to say the
least. Last year's top three vote
getters all return: Oklahoma
quarterback Sam Bradford,,
who received last year's
.trophy, Texas quarterback Colt

Bradford's Wynn recognized for service, rank attained


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Wayne Wynn did pretty
much all he could do while
serving this country, having
worn a uniform for 41 years,
serving in two wars and
achieving the highest rank an
enlisted soldier can obtain, in
the Army. However, there w\as
just one more thing Wynn,
no\\ retired, needed to do-
accept an honorary saber from
the Sergeant Majors
Association of Florida.
Wynnn( a Bradford County
native, attended a dinner at
Western Steer Family,
Steakhouse July 30, which was
sponsored by the Florida
Enlisted National Guard
Auxiliary. Retired Command
Sgt. Maj. Larry- Hewett made
the saber presentation.
"Wayne did a good job,"
Hewett said. "He took care of
soldiers."
Taking care of soldiers was
something Wynn had done
well before reaching the rank
of command sergeant major,
which puts one in command of
a battalion-sized element. He
was in a position of command
for most of his military career,
which began after he graduated
from Bradford High School in
1967.
"At the time, everyone was
supporting the war effort in
Vietnam," said Wynn, the son
of Willard and Doris Wynn. "I
went ahead and enlisted while
I was in high school."
Wynn was selected to go
through the noncommissioned
officers' candidate course.
There was a need, he said, for
infantry squad leaders in
Vietnam.
"I volunteered to go," he
said. "It was a volunteer
course. You made quick rank.
I finished the course. It was
about four months long. It was
kind of a cram course to prep
you for infantry tactics in
Vietnam as a squad leader."
Wynn and one other soldier
in the 126-member class were
promoted. Wynn went to
Vietnam as a staff sergeant
after having been in the
military 18 months.
Wynn arrived in Vietnam in
1968, but was brought back to
the States in 1969 after being
wounded. After recovering in
the hospital, Wynn took on a
job as an airborne instructor at
Fort Bening, Ga.
SIn 1970, Wynn joined the e'
Special Forces, serving withh"
the 11" and 20'" Special Forces
groups for 28 years.
Wynn was promoted to


command sergeant major of
the 124"' Infantry Regiment of
the Florida National Guard,
based in Miami, in 2000. In
2003, his unit was one of the
first ones to be deployed to
Iraq following 9-11, he said.
Not long after leaving active
duty in April 2004, Wynn
joined the Army Reserve. He
got into military intelligence as
a sergeant major with Central
Command in Tampa, serving
until mandatory retirement at
age 60 in July 2008.
The saber Wynn received
July 30 was just one more
honor he achieved throughout
that 41-year career. Awards
he's especially proud of are the
Legion of Merit, Bronze Star
and Purple Heart, while badges
he's proud of are Master
Parachutist and Military
Freefall Parachutist.
Then there's the Combat
Infantryman Bade, Second
Award. That, Wynn said, is the
one he is the most proud of.
"Not too many people get
the second award," he said. "It
means you have to be in
combat in two conflicts."
Wynn, when looking back
upon the conflicts he served in,
said the Vietnam War was
more of a black-and-white war
when it came to determining
who the enemy was, though it
was difficult to discern
Vietcong soldiers from
civilians
"Overall, most of the battles
we were in, you knew who the
bad guys were most of the
time," Wynn said.
In Iraq, it was hard to figure
out who the enemy was due to
lack of uniforms, Wynn said.
"Our mission over there was
a little harder," Wynn said.
"We moved in at the beginning
of the war to set up a police
force, train the military and
assist in organizing their
government, yet you still had
the bad guys who would like to
Ssee a lot of American soldiers
dead. They would wave at you
as you went by and shoot at
the last vehicle in the convoy.
"It was a hard war-harder
to fight than in Vietnam."
The two' wars also differed
in terms of acceptance and
support within the U.S. Wynn
said 'he has never been
ashamed of wearing his
uniform, but it was tough to do
so returning from Vietnam.
"I didn't put my uniform on
7 irltil I wenf to drili because
people ivould' give-' you 'thp
finger," he said. "They looked
down on you like you were a
second-class citizen. That was

The support he didn't
receivefor fighting in Vietnam
was doubled, he said, when it
came to the war in Iraq. The
support was evident as his unit
traveled to Fort Stewart, Ga.,


prior to going overseas.
"We were given police

Wynn said' "There were

turned out. They lined the"
street for miles."
Wynn said his time in the
Special Forces were the best
.years of his career. It was hard
work, he admitted, but also
rewarding. He participated in a
lot of counter-drug activities
and humanitarian missions in
South America, which gave
him the sense he was doing
good things for people.,
"I always felt when I got
back home that our mission
down there was good," Wynn
said. "It w\as good to help the
people out."
Another aspect of Wynn's
career that he is proud of is the
number of hours he spent on
hazardous duty. His time in
Vietnam, Iraq, jump school
and in the Special Forces
amounted to 32 years.
"I probably hold the record
for being on hazardous duty
orders," he said.
Also, Wynn is proud of the


fact all his work was done on
the infantry level, "out in
front" with the guys, as he put
it.
"I've never been in a
position where I was in
support, like logistics, moving
supplies and things," he said.
"I've always been up front."
Most any soldier will tell
you that a lot of credit goes to
his or her spouse for support.
Wynn is no different. He said
his wife, Charlotte, or "Char,"
was an "excellent Army wife."
Marie Brabham, the
president of the Florida
Enlisted National Guard
Auxiliary, presented the
President's Distinguished
Service Award to Char Wynn
at the July 30 dinner.

KH man

crashes into

CCSO deputy
Raymond Austin, 38, of
Keystone Heights was arrested
Aug. 1 by Clay County
Sheriffs Office Deputy D.
Paniccia for leaving the scene
of a. crash with property
damage, driving while license
is suspended or revoked and
resisting an officer without
violence.
The charges resulted after
the car Austin was allegedly
driving struck the rear of a
2009 Chevy Impala CCSO
patroF car occupied by Deputy
R. Clark. The patrol vehicle
had come to a stop at an
intersection on C.R. 218 in
Middleburg when the other
vehicle crashed into the rear of
the patrol car with enough
force to disable Deputy Clark's
vehicle.
The car being driven by
Austin then left the scene.
Deputy Clark gave information
to other patrol deputies and
Deputy Paniccia located the
crashed vehicle in a driveway
on Carter Spencer Road.
Deputies observed Austin
running in a wooded area
nearby. He allegedly refused
repeated orders to stop and
was finally apprehended by a
K-9 officer.
Deputy .Clark was not
injured in the crash. Austin had
lacerations to his face, nose
and hands, but denied that they
were the result of the crash.

Editorial/Opi n ion

Thursday, Aug. 6, 2009 * Page 4B

In response to
letter from
Robert
Bransford
Dear Editor,
'I am writing this letter to
respond to Mr. - Robert
Bransford's comments that
were published in. your paper
on'July 30, 2009.
I will begin by saying that it
is striking . at the
misinformation that was
propagated by Mr. Bransford
and that his comments reflect
the general assumptions and
societal mindset that have our
country in the wonderful state
that it is today. What is the
real question here? I believe
that what t we are talking about
is "truth." What is truth?
That is the question for
yesterday, when Pontius Pilate
was confronted with ,the
Messiah, Jesus Christ, and it
is the question today.
First of all, Mr. Bransford
claims, that Christians do not
know reality and that we live
in a make believe existence. I
believe that you cannot know
what reality is without
knowing what the truth is.
Some in our society would
claim that truth is subjective,
i.e, whatever you think is
truth, is truth and whatever I
think is truth is truth. Truth
is exclusive, not inclusive.
Truth excludes falsities. Basic
logic states. that true + true =
true and true + false = false.
That brings me to the next
thing that I would like to
address: Mr.. Bransford's
statements that "science is
true." To which "science" is
he referring? Chemistry?
Biology? Astronomy?
Geology? All of these are
basically the study of God's
creation. There would be no,
chemistry, no biology, no
astronomy, no geology if God
had not created the universe,
the earth, the sky, the stars,
and all the life therein.
So, just to set the matter
straight, I would like to
compare what Christians-
believe versus what those who
adhere to the new "science"
religion believe. Christians.
know and believe that God is
real, that He created
everything, that His Son Jesus
Christ is both man and God,
that He was born of a virgin,
died on the cross for our sins,
was buried in a tomb and rose
again on the third day. We
believe that Jesus is seated at
the right hand of God and will
come again in Glory one day
really soon to judge and set up
His kingdom forever and
forever.
Where do we get this truth
from and why are we so sure
that it is true? Jesus said in
John 14:6, "I am the way the
truth and the life.. No man
cometh unto the Father but by
me." That is an exclusive
statement. What He is saying
is, that unless you come
,through Him, you are not
going to get to Heaven. Who
was Jesus saying that He was
'and was it true? Jesus said, "I
am," when asked by the
Jewish council if He was the
'Messiah, 'if He was God's son
making Him equal with The high priest ripped his
garment in a show of grief and
anger (a Jewish custom) and
then they proceeded, to beat
Him, spit on Him and take
Him to Pontius Pilate to be
crucified.
Jesus said in John 2.19, "I
will destroy this temple and in
three days I will raise it up."
He was speaking of His body
and if fact he spoke of being
crucified and laying down his
life for us. This did happen
and on the third day He rose
again. This has been
historically verified. There
were many witnesses' and it
was written of in Josephus,
which is one of the most
trustworthy and accurate
depictions of Roman and
Jewish history written
thousands of years ago.
The entirety of the Bible
was written by Jewish men
who believed in God: that God
is real, He is the Creator, and
that He would send One to
save men from their sins.
Jesus Christ is mentioned all
the way through the Bible
from Genesis to Revelation.
How is it possible that several
different Jewish men, some


prophets, some kings, some
apostles, could' write fluid
Truth over' 1,500 years?
Because the Bible, that book
that we look to for Truth, was
inspired by the same God
through His Holy Spirit.


How does the Bible compare
with other religions' "holy"
books? In Josh McDowell's
book, "Evidence that
Demands a Verdict," a book
that Mr. Bransford would do
well to investigate before he
starts to critique the Bible, he
quotes a man named Prof. M.
Montiero-Williams, former
Boden professor of Sanskrit, as
saying:
"After 42 years of studying
Eastern books, he compared
them with the Bible and said:
"Pile them, if you will, on the
left side of your study table;
but place your own Holy Bible
on the right side- all by itself,
all alone- and with a wide gap
.between them. For....there is
a gulf between it and the so-
called sacred books of the,East
which severs the one from the
other utterly, hopelessly, and
forever... a veritable gulf which
cannot be bridged over by an
science of religious thought."
(p. 4)
When Buddha was asked if
he was God, his response was,
"No, I am a man," but Jesus'
response was "I am." When
Buddha died, he stayed dead,
as did Muhammad and every
other "god" or "prophet' that
ever lived on this earth. But,
Jesus is alive. When they
burie' him, He came out of the
tomb and walked around for 40
days and then in the sight of
hundreds of people, ascended
into Heaven. Jesus said that
He came to save men from
their sins, to be the atonement
for mens' sins, but no other
religion offers this. Hindus
kill their own children in
worship to the river goddess
Ganges in an effort to make an
atonement for their sins, to no
avail. But Jesus is the Lamb
of God which taketh away the
sins of the world. He is our
sacrifice, our Passover. His
blood has made an atonement.
That is exclusive truth. No
other god offers this.
The Bible, which is the
Word of God and the only
Truth, is exclusive. Other
"religions" can not match the
. claims- in the Word of God,
and the Truth in it. Other
religions' adherents worship
with doubt, but we know that
we know that we know that
our God is real, His Son is
real and His Word is true,
because I was lost, I was
blind, I was wretched, but now
I have been born again, I am a
new creation. My life is not a
disaster anymore. I have joy
unspeakable, I have peace that
passes all understanding, I
have the Holy Spirit living
inside of me, and I am free
from the power of sin and the
weight of all the sins I
committed before I met Jesus
Christ.
Christians go to the doctor
and we are blessed because we
know that when we are healed,
it is because God has'done it,
not because medicine has done
Sit. If medicine is so reliable,
then how is it two people with
the same cancer can get the
same treatment and one die
and the other live? That's a
fifty-fifty shot, even with the
best medicine. Can science
save your soul?
How does science explain
that when you lie, or steal, or
lust, you feel bad about it
later? How does sdience
explain "good" and "evil"?
Does evolution explain
Heaven? Does evolution give
hope? Does science claim that
if you believe on science you
will be saved from eternal
damnation? Does science
change men's hearts? Does
science deliver from
addictions? Does science heal
broken hearts? Does science
restore broken marriages and
broken lives?
No! It doesn't. But Jesus
does. Jesus is the healer, the
deliverer, the Son of God, the


Savior, the restorer, the
comforter, the peacemaker, the
Redeemer, the Alpha and the
Omega, the Beginning and the
Ending, the First and the Last,
the King of kings and the Lord
of Lords. He is the Truth, the
Way and the Life. What does
science offer us? A pill for
headaches and maybe a vaccine
here and there (which were
discovered by "accident"), and
thank God for discoveries.
That's wonderful, but science
can't touch your emotions,
your soul, or your spirit.
Mr. Bransford says that the
Bible speaks nothing of
science, but science is the
study of God's creation. The
book of Job lists the wonders
of God's creations like, sea
vents that have only been
recently been discovered (Job
38:16). If Mr. Bransford thinks
that his tail b'ne doesn't have
a purpose, I challenge him to
have his surgically removed
and then comment on its
usefulness, or his appendix for
that matter which is well
known at this time to help
one's colon recover from viral
and bacterial infections. If God
designed it, then we can trust
that it has a use.
Those who adhere to the-
"science" religion believe the
following:
There is no God: people,
animals, plants, insects, DNA,
cells, amoebas, stars, planets,
oxygen, etc. etc. all came out
of an infinitesimal speck that
somehow ignited and exploded
millions and millions df years
ago (so long ago, we don't
even know) and that all living
things "evolved" out of mud
and rocks. - They believe that
somehow a cell formed, which
decided that it would die
unless it formed more cells and
then millions of years go by
and it decides that it would die
if it didn't crawl out of the
primordial sludge and mate
with another cell that had
"somehow" gone through the
same processes. Does anyone
else see how ridiculous that
is?
The adherents, like Mr.
Bransford, of the "science"
religion have faith that men are
animals. The USSR taught
their people for years that they
had no God and that they were
just animals, which is the
reason why it was such a
wonderful and free society,
where people were given every
opportunity to be "re-
educated" and tortured for
thinking for themselves and
spreading the real truth.
Darwinism and the theory of
evolution are the foundational
doctrines for racism, Margaret
Sanger and Planned
Parenthood's "policy of
eugenics," countless
genocides, Hitler's "Final
Solution," Karl Marxs
communism, Stalin's
murderous rampages and
countless other atrocities in
human history. Men today
would do well to study the
facts before delving into
erroneous conclusions based
on.. propagandistic'
philosophies. Mr. Bransford
says that we Christians just
stick our heads in our Bibles
and deny truth. But I say, that
the Bible is the only truth-'
there is. The theory of
evolution has been proven
untrue, but after 6,000 years,
not one word of the Bible has
been proven as untrue.

Councilmen, is
it just a job for
pay, or do you
really care?
Dear Editor,
Each nionth the Lawtey City
Council members are paid
approximately $350.00, but
how much work have they
done? When you have a
problem with trash pickup,
who do you call? We have a
council person over streets and
sanitation, but who do you
depend on? Are you getting
any service out of your elected
officials? Or is it just a

supplemental paycheck?
Would you commit to a
minimum of 10 hours work
per month for the $350 the
council members are
paid? Currently there is no
requirement. Do you feel you
have "earned" the
pay received? When was the
last time you spoke randomly
about issues of your
department to the
citizens? Was it during the
last election?
When the residents ' on
Carter Road have
problems with the road


who listens to their concerns?
When the residents on Fifth
Street have a funny taste in
their water, who do they call?
Who is the advocate for those
in need of recreation services?
Who are your council
members? Are they monthly
meeting only
council members? Substitute
your officials (Bradford County
commissioners, City of Starke
commissioners, state
representatives, etc). Are you
getting anything from the
individuals you elected?

private at a later date.
.. The following information is
from -Granny's son, Charles
Ormsbee:
Alice Arwood was a fixture in
the local business area for many
years. She died recently, but as a
woman business person she never
let the fact that she was a woman
or didn't have formal business
training deter her from becoming
. successful in several long-running
enterprises.
S She was and will remain in the
minds of many a true entrepreneur
with a creative core of great
business sense. A risk taker and
definitely a woman ahead of her
.time.

-. was hired as a lot salesperson at
the former Mustang Mobile
Homes, north of Starke on
,-; Hfghway 301 .. She was so
successful in sales that she was
soon named the manager of the
facility. Not only was she a great
salesperson but she also took a
hands-on approach and she would
often be seen setting up the double
wide mobile home - carrying
concrete' blocks in the mud and
,'. leveling the home with a jack.
In 1976, she entered the floral
business, opening her first full-
service floral business, called
Sunshine Florist, in Keystone
Heights: She was inspired and
seemed to have boundless energy,
she just kept going on - she just
knew that she was going to be
successful and she was. Later, due
to the success she enjoyed, she
expanded and opened up Sunshine
Gardens, a plant nursery in
Midway, Flowers by Larry in
Orange Park and Flowers by
Larry in Starke.

would often work through the

gettingto work in the flower shop.
. Looking for a bigger market she


sold the Ilorist businesses, in 1980
and started Daisies and More (a
wholesale flower company which
was the exclusive vendor for the
Winn Dixie grocery chain for
many years). This was unchartered
territory at that time and the idea
of having fill-service florist shops
inside grocery stores was a tnew
idea onl\ tried ii a few markets
nationwide. The flower shops
were supplied with fresh
arrangements created by her and
her staff at her warehouse. She
also sold house plants, gills and
more. It was a very successful
enterprise and she soon was
supplying all of the Winn-Dixie
stores from Northern Florida to
Southern Georgia. It was a
lucrative business until she
decided on a new challenge in
1992.
In 1992. Arwoo.d opened and
operated the Country Corner

Alice operated Granny's Best until
2002 at the age of 75.
She was never one to rest on her
laurels and she proved the old
adage of the best job one can have
in life is the one you create
yourself. She had a passion for
whatever she undertook and
throughout recessions, good times
and, in-between, she remained
optimistic and positive and made
her businesses work. As a single
mom and a woman, she sent a
powerful message to others that
you can accomplish your dreams.

KIWANIS
Continued from page 6B

O'Neal treasurer.
Meetings, which are now
held at Western Steer Family
Steakhouse, were originally
held in the old Holiday Inn.
To say the early years were
a struggle would be putting it
mildly. Denmark said there
would be meetings where there
would be only eight to 10
people present.
"We had six charter
niembers who never came to a
meeting," Futch said.
Denmark and Futch cannot
only reminisce together about
those early-year struggles, but
also about a well-intentioned
fundraiser that practically
proved to be more trouble than
it was worth.
A fundraising idea featured
in Kiwanis magazines was
giving out bags of peanuts
with the idea that members
would not sell the peanuts but
accept donations for them.
Clubs were able to order
specially packaged bags of,
peanuts for the purpose, but'
clubs had to order,a minimum
of 15 cases. Futch said each
case must hawe contained
something like 72 bags of
peanuts.
Each case coast $16 to
Futch's recollection, but it was
not easy earning that amount
back. Denmark talked of how
club members stood out on
U.S. 301 on a football
Saturday, giving away peanuts
while people pitched nickels,
dimes and quarters into
collection cans. The money
collected that day was a long
way from the more than $240
the club had invested in the
peanuts. Plus, Denmark said
giving away peanuts all day
did not make much of a dent in
the total number of bags the
club had.
"After several months go
by," Denmarks said, "we were
like, 'Well, what are we going
to do with all of these
peanuts?' Steve Futch
graciously volunteered to store
them down there at his funeral
home."
Denmark said the club tried
to give the peanuts away every
couple of years. Futch said
they were given away at fairs
and ball games, but the club
still had a hard time getting rid
of them.


Steve Denmark, one of
three charter members
still active in the Kiwanis
Club of Starke, shares
some stories of his
experiences in the club.

A woman who was in charge
of a circus that visited Starke
every year at that time said she
could use peanuts, so she
bought some, helping the club
earn its money back plus
approximately $1,000, Futch
said. Still, there were peanuts
remaining.
"I think Steve (Futch) also
put a couple packs in
everybody's caskets in case
you got hungry going to
Heaven," Denmark said,
adding, "I remember they got
pretty stale before we got rid
of them."
The peanut story brought
laughs, as did most of
Denmark's and Futch's
reminisces. Both men
remembered fundraising
pancake breakfasts at which
former member Eddie'Douglas
got creative, making pancakes
in the shapes of the diners'
initials.
"It was really .cool," Futch
said. "We sold a lot of
pancakes and eventually, made
some money. That's how we
funded things for the club back
in those days."
Denmark talked of one
pancake breakfast at which the


club wasn't doing much
business. Mike Cooney, the
president of the club at the
time, said he would go put
signs along U.S. 301 to drum
up business. yhen the event
was over, Denmark picked up
the signs, noticing that Cooney
had misspelled Kiwanis. What
was even funnier than the
president not knowing how to
spell the club name was the
fact Cooney was wearing a
shirt that had the club name on
it.
"We gave Mike a lot of grief
about that," Denmark said.
Denmark talked' of a
chicken-dinner' fundraiser the
club had one summer, which
was suggested by a member
who lived in Keystone
Heights, which did not have a
club at the time. This member
had moved from the Midwest,
where he was also a member
of Kiwanis. He said one of his
club's fundraisers was to fry
chicken and sell dinners. He
was to be in charge of
supplying the chicken fryer.
"He showed up with what
can best be described as
Snuffy Smith's chicken fryer,"
Denmark said. "It was made of
sheet steel. It was welded so it
held oil, but the way he heated
it up was by burning pallets.
I'm telling you, you go
burning enough pallets to get
grease hot enough to fry
chicken in July in Florida, it's
hot."
Denmark said it was so hot
he had to wrap his legs in
pasteboard. He swore his shoes
melted in the process. The
funny thing was, the chicken
was cooked outside the
Bradford High School
cafeteria, which had fryers the
club could've used. However,
the club member responsible
for the fundraiser said the club
couldn't use the fryers in the
school kitchen-his set-up was
the way it was done. Denmark
said -the club never let the
member in question do another
chicken dinner.
Because of the fun-and
funny-times over the years,
Kiwanis meetings are the
meetings he truly misses when
he can't attend, Denmark said.
Club membership has resulted
in good fellowship and good
friends. That's why his last
remarks to club members were
to be active participants.
"If you haven't been
involved in projects, try to get
involved," Denmark said.


"You will make some .[Lsting
friendships and give something
back to a town that has been
good to all of us."
Futch agreed. He said there
were aggravations over the
years, including those
"doggone" peanuts, but joining
the club was one of the best
things he has done.
"Who have you met and
known because of this club?"
Futch asked. "Who would you
have missed'? I would've
missed so many great friends,
acquaintances and
relationships if I hadn't been in
this club."
As far as Futch is concerned,
what could be better than
making friends while helping
out your hometown in the
process?
"The community is. the one
that benefits," Futch said.


Empty pockets never
held anyone back.
Only empty heads and
empty hearts can do
that.

Effort under way to

create Bradford-

Baker game trophy


Residents of Bradford and
Baker counties are being asked
for their input to help create a
trophy that will be presented
annually to the winner of the
Bradford High School-Baker
County High School football
game.
Corey Davis, who writes for
the Baker County Standard, is
seeking input for a type 'of
trophy that would be symbolic
of the, rivalry and the
communities in which the
schools are located. Some high
school rivalries in Florida have
such trophies. Columbia and
Suwannee play for the Old
Oaken Bucket, for example,
while Santa Fe and Fort White
are involved in the Battle of
the Paddle.
You may e-mail your ideas
to Davis at
corey_dav is_27@yahoo.com.
Ideas may also be sent via e-
mail to Cliff Smelley of the
Bradford County Telegraph at
csmelley@bctelegraph.com.
Davis is also seeking


historic information about the
rivalry, including past scores.
Besides a trophy given to the
football game winner, an effort
is under way to present a
trophy in honor of overall
sports achievement.
Head-to-head competition in
every sport will be used to help
determine the winner of the
"Backyard Rivalry." Davis
said the idea is to not only
reward current student-
athletes, but to build school
spirit and pride among alumni
and fans of both schools.
A points-based system will
be utilized, with different point
value's assigned to the various
sports. The winning school
would need a minimum of 110
points of a.mnaxirum 210 total
points to win the award.
If the two schools do not
compete head-to-head in a
particular sport, points will be
determined by the schools'
performance in district
tournaments.

Spiller goes into season

with impressive numbers


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff writer
Whether or not Clemson
senior running back CJ.
Spiller wins the Heisman
trophy, fans of the Tigers have
to 'be thrilled he decided to
return for his senior season
since he has been a major
contributor to the team since
he arrived on campus as a
f --.freshman.
Spiller, a 2006 Union
County High School graduate,
rushed for 938 yards' his
freshman season, despite
sharing time in the backfield
with James Davis, and has
established quite a few school
records during his career,
including scoring 12
touchdowns of at least 50
yards. Six of those scores
covered at least 80 yards.
As a freshman, Spiller
gained his 938 yards on, 129
carries, scoring 10 touchdowns
on the ground. He caught 19
passes for 210 yards and two
touchdowns as well ,as
returning 13 kickoffs for 234
yards.
Spiller rushed for 768 yards
and three touchdowns on 145
carries as a sophomore, while
catching 34 passes for 271
yards and two touchdowns. He
returned 19 kickoffs for 547
yards and two touchdowns.,
.Last year, Spiller rushed for
629 yards and seven
touchdowns on 116 carries as a
junior. He caught 34 passes for
S436 yards and three
touchdowns, while returning
19 kickoffs for 516 yards and
one touchdown.
Some of Spiller's other
Accomplishments include:
A. school record of six
touchdowns of at least 50



TROPHY
Cont. from page 1 B
McCoy, who was last year's
runner-up, and Florida
quarterback Tim Tebow, who
placed third last year, but won
the award in 2007.
Patricia Watkins, Spiller's
mother, said, "It means a lot
for his name just to be
mentioned with that gQoup of
guys." '
Does Spiller deserve to be
mentioned as a candidate along
w ..vith that trio? Watkins, of
course, thinks so. She said
Bradford, McCoy and Tebow
are all good athletes, but thinks
her son possesses all the same
qualities that made those
players finalists last year and
favorites this year. I
Spiller does not shy away
from talking about himself
belonging in the same group as
those players. "I like my
chances," he said. However,

Spiller's main focus this year
is not to play well enough. to

fine, but his reason for wanting

win games.
"We still have.some work to
get done,"' Spiller said,.
alluding to the fact the Tigers
have never won the ACC
championship during his time
there.
If Spiller isas.e, ,jaisman'
Sfinalist, he said it won't be
solely because of his efforts.
He has always praised the play
of those around him-
especially the offensive
linemen-and will continue to
do so in the future.
"One person can't do it by
himself," Spiller said.
Spiller, a first-team all-ACC
selection last year as a return
specialist, is a preseason All-
ACC pick as return specialist

conjunction with several sponsors, created to
publicize Spiller as a Heisman trophy candidate.


and running back. He led the
ACC last year with 147.5 all-
purpose yards per game and is
already Clemson's career
leader in .that category with
4,908 yards. Spiller needs 921
all-purpose yards to become
the ACC's all-time leader.
Spiller, who was second in
the ACC in kickoff returns and
punt returns, is on pace to
become the first player in
Clemson history to gain at
least 2,000 rushing yards,
1,000 receiving yards and
1,000 yards in kickoff returns.
He has already surpassed those
totals in rushing (2,335) and
kickoffs (1,297), -needing 83
yards to reach 1,000 in
receiving.
For three years, Spiller has
shared carries with running
back James Davis. With Davis
now in the NFL, Spiller's
number of touches should
increase. Clemson head coach
Dabo Swinney, during a Jan.
15 press conference at which
Spiller announced his intention
to bypass the NFL draft and
return for his senior year, said
Spiller will be the team's
featured player on offense.
"I am anxious to see what he
can do in that role," Sweeney

said at the press conference.
"He is a back who can rush for
1,000 and get another 500
receiving. That is something
that has never been done at
Clemson. He can be a first-
team all-American and a
Heisman candidate."
If touching the ball more
times will help his team win,
then Spiller said he is all for it.
Wanting to carry the load at
running back, though, is not
something he said he was
shooting for. In fact,
sophomore Jamie Harper, a
Jacksonville native, and
redshirt freshman Andre Davis
are talented backs who will
help take the load off his
shoulders, Spiller said.
Watkins said that is one
thing that has - always
characterized her son. Whereas
so many players nowadays
want to be the star, Spiller is
coile'n to \wrk within the
confines of whatever is best
for his team.
"He doesn't play selfish,"
Watkins said.,
The Tigers could have found
themselves relying on nothing
but young running backs this
year. Spiller considered

moving on to the NFL, where
he was projected to be a high
pick. ESPN draft guru Mel
Kiper Jr. had Spiller listed as
his top junior running back
leading up to the draft.
After much prayer and
reflection, though, Spiller
announced he was returning
for his senior year. He said he
owed it to the players who
enrolled at Clemson the same
time he did as well as to those
younger players coming up,
who will be relying on
guidance from the senior class.
"I wanted to come back and
play with my teammates,"
Spiller said.
At the press conference at
which he announced he was
returning to school, Spiller
talked of things he had to
accomplish at Clemson. That
includes getting his degree.
Spiller, a sociology major, has
certainly put in the work
toward that end. He was
named to the school's dean's
list during the first semester of
the 2008-09 school year with a
3.5 GPA .and selected as an
academic all-ACC pick, Spiller
is the first Clemson running
back to earn all-ACC honors
for performance on the field
and in the classroom in the
same semester. He is the first
Clemson player, regardless of
position, to achieve the feat
since offensive lineman Kyle
Young did so in 2000.
Spiller said the academic
awards are what he's, most
proud of, especially having
earned those awards in a
conference' full of
"tremendous" students.
"It just took a lot of
discipline," he said.
Whether or not Spiller
makes a serious run at
Bradford, McCoy and Tebow
for the Heisman remains to be

seen, but Spiller said the
publicity attempts undertaken
by Clemson can do nothing but
help the school in the future. It
brings about increased media
exposure that should help not
only the football program, but
the entire athletic department,
he said.
"I think it's a great
recruiting tool," Spiller said.
Though he insists on putting
the spotlight on his school and
the players around him, don't
think Spiller is rot excited
about the fact he is being
touted as a Heisman candidate.
Watkins said all you have to
do is look at the big snile her
son is flashing on those
Heisman publicity posters to
know how much it means to
him.
Of course, you have to find
one of those posters first.

'Clav ion NMosle\ was a first-
team Class 3A all-state
selection in baseball for this
I past season, while fellow

SMosley, who was selected to
the team as an outfielder,
Batted .400 this past season,
-while also compiling an 8-3
:record as a pitcher. He is
currently in his sixth week at
SWest Point, having received a
:scholarship to play baseball for
the Army Black Knights.
Mosley, scheduled to graduate
from basic training Aug. 15,
'said, "I'm doing well, and I
love it."
SDugard, a transfer student,
'played just one year for
Keystone,. but contributed
,greatly. -He was named a
Isecond-team all-state pitcher
after going 9-3 with an ERA of.
3.14. Dugard won three
postseason games.
Dugard and Mosley helped
the Indians advance to the
regional finals for the second
straight year. Trinity Catholic,
which .defeated Keystone in
the best-of-three series, had
three first-team selections, one
second-team selection and one
thiid-team selection.
.. Union County, which plays
in Keystone's district, had two
players receive honorable
mention in rising seniors
Thomas Cason and Mason
Dukes. Both were infield
selections.
Interlachen was the only
other - team from- the same
district to have players
honored. Graduates Matt Byrd
and Landon Tull received
honorable mention.
