WS receives grant

for boat ramp


The city of Worthington
SSprings is the recipient of yet
another $200,000 from a long
list of grants received from
the state of Florida.
A new grant was recently
awarded for a Santa Fe
River access boat ramp,
complete with a fishing pier
and gazebos for parking and
picnicking.
The grant was made
possible through the efforts
of Mayor John D. Rimes III
who has been working on the
project for several months.
In the past two years,
Rimes has successfully
applied, for and acquired a
record-setting $1.7 million in
state and federal grants for
improvements to Worthington
Springs.
Anyone driving through the
city down S.R..121 has likely
noticed the many upgrades


to city parks and recreation
areas.
According to Rimes,
whenever possible, all
contracted work (i.e. site
prep, heavy equipment
operators, tree removal,
plumbing, electrical, concrete
and aggregate suppliers) is
turned right back over to the
local economy by using local
businesses, contractors and
laborers. Rimes is not paid
for his elected duties, nor
are any of the town's other
elected council members.
. Rimes said he seeks out
grants as a personal challenge.
"Some people say funds are
not available, but even' in
these hard economic times,
there are still numerous state
and federal funds available to
our community. You just have

Three men were arrested
Aug. 8 by Bradford County
Sheriff's Office deputies after a
fight broke out while the three
were at a bar being operated by
a group renting the Bradford
Fairgrounds on U.S. 301.
According to BCSO Capt.
Brad Smith, the fight broke
out at about 2:30 a.m. in the
parking lot at the.fairgrounds
and involved several patrons
of the bar. When deputies
arrived, they were told by
bystanders that someone had
discharged a firearniinto the air
over the crowd and the crowd
had quickly dispersed. The
bystanders said they did not
know who had fired the shot.
A short time later, Deputy
Danny Wolfe saw a green
BMW leaving the Kangaroo
at U.S-. 301 and S.R. 16. Wolfe
saw the front seat passenger in
the BMW firing a handgun into
the air over the store parking
lot.
When Deputy Wolfe
attempted to stop the vehicle,
it.began to flee. The front seat
passenger fired the handgun
out the window of the vehicle
during the chase. The pursuit
lasted for a couple of miles
before officers ended it by
tapping the rear side of the
vehicle with the front side of a
patrol car, a move referred to as
the PIT maneuver.
The tap caused the vehicle


to rotate and spin to a stop in
the 400 block of West Madison
Street. The front passenger
dropped the handgun during
the spin.
The driver, Rodrick Marvin
Thompson, 18, of Gainesville,
was arrested and charged with
fleeing and attempting to elude
a police officer. Bond was set at
$10,000 and he was released on
bond Aug. 9.
The front seat passenger,
Rodney Maurice Sheffield, 21,
of Gainesville was arrested and
charged with aggravated assault
on a law enforcement officer
and discharging a firearm in
public. Total bond was set at
$50,000 and he was released on
bond Aug. 9.
A few hours later, another
call was received regarding
gunshots being fired. Deputies
responded to the Pleasant Grove
area where witnesses said they
saw Maurice E. Hewitt, 30, of
Starke, fire the shots.
Hewitt was .located by
deputies nearby. They found
ammunition in his possession,
but did not find a weapon.
Hewit allegedly admitted to
the deputies that. he had also
been present at the fight in the
fairgrounds parking lot earlier
in the evening.
Hewitt was charged with
possession of ammunition by a
convicted felon. Bond was set
at $15,000 and he was released
on bond Aug. 9.

second try at

splash playground


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
The city commissioners
of Lake Butler are holding a
community-wide meeting on
Monday, Aug. 17, at 5 p.m.
at city hall. The purpose-of
the meeting is to receive input
from citizens regarding the re-
submittal of a grant application .
for a splash playground.in Lake
Butler.
Last September, the city of
Lake Butler, with the assistance
the engineering firm Bailey,
Bishop and Lane, applied for
a splash playground grant
through the Florida Recreation
SDevelopment Assistance Grant
(FRDAP) from the Florida


Department of Environmental
Protection.
Unfortunately, due to
statewide budget cuts, the
legislature decided not to fund
any FRDAP projects for its
2009-2010 fiscal year. This
project, along with the 194
other applications, was nbt
funded, however, the city was
invited to reapply this year.
Megan Carter, planner and
grant coordinator for Bailey,
Bishop and Lane, said that she
hopes the community will come
out and show their support
for the splash playground.
Attendance at the meeting
with show the state that the
community fully supports and
desires this endeavor.

Thoburn is the new head of BHS

Principal says he wants to raise and celebrate achievement in all programs


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Doug Thoburn's journey to
become principal at Bradford
High School is one that has
taken him around the world
and exposed him to a variety of
experiences that he says helped
prepare him for the job.
Thoburn was born and raised-
in Cambridge, Ohio. Right out
of Cambridge High, he joined
_,the U.S. Air Force for what he
thought would be a four-year
experience but turned into a 20-
year career before he knew it.
During that time he got
married and had children. At
the end of four years, he already
had a young family, and he said
re-enlisting was the smart thing
to do. For the first 13 years,
Thoburn was an aircrdw member
on the C-5, a cargo aircraft,
which he said he loved.
Initially stationed at Dover Air
Force Base in Delaware, Thoburn
said he got to travel the world.
Eventually, he and his family
even lived for a time overseas.
Stationed in Oklahoma,
Thobuin spent 10 years teaching
at an airlift training center,
where he, also became involved
in designing curriculum and
program evaluation.
Following Operation Desert
Storm, which took him away
from his family for an extended
period, Thoburn made a move to
professional military education
at Okinawa.
"For the bulk of about 18
months, I was gone '- lot. So
when that was completed, I
called up the personnel center
and said, 'Hey, I would,like to do
something different,'" he said.
For three years Thoburn ran
the airman leadership school
at Kadena Air Base in Japan.
He then became first sergeant,
and two of his last four years,
in the service were spent-
living with his family in South
Korea, which he described as a
wonderful opportunity'and great
experience.
He retired from the service in
1999 with all of the experience he
had gained as:well as a bachelor's,,
degree from Southern Illinois-,
University and-a master' ':fromr
Sthe'University of Oklahoma.
The family returned to
Thoburn's home state' of Ohio
where he became employed
as a. high school guidance
counselor. He also continued his
_education, pursuing certification
as a secondary school principal.
-After two years as a counselor,
he received his first opportunity
to lead a middle school on the
outskirts of Columbus.
The next six years were split
between being a middle school
.and high school principal. In the
meantime his adult daughter, a
teacher, had moved to Florida
and become pregnant with the
Thoburns' first grandchild. So
in 2007, Thoburn and his wife
began exploring a move to the
Sunshine State as well.
He was offered an opportunity
at Sebring Middle School in
Highlands County.
"That was just a great
opportunity, because it
introduced me to Florida public
education, the Florida system,
and I was really exposed to some
innovative and great educational
techniques, because Sebring
Middle School had been, and still
is, an A school," Thoburn said.
After a year, he becanie
Highlands' district administrator
overseeing career and technical
education, which involved
managing the program at three
middle schools and four high
schools, and working with the
local community college to
help open a career academy for
students in record time.
Budget -cuts eliminated
the position over career and
technical education, however,
and Thoburn was set to go back

& Keystone!

to Sebring. Middle School as
an assistant principal when the
principal .position at Bradford
High became available.
It's all for the best, because
after a year at the district level,
Thobyrn said he realized his
true love is being with students,
and so his goal was to become a
principal again.
Thoburn said his time in the
military has helped shape his core
values, including service before
self, but it also helped develop
his problem solving abilities.
"In education, sometimes,-we
lose sight of the forest because
we're looking at a tree," he said.
Thoburn said he has the ability
to step back, take a deep breath
and evaluate which direction to
take when an issue arises instead
of just jumping into crisis mode.
"Sometimes people will say,
'How can you be so calm?' We
have to be calm:' he said. "Our
job is to do what's best for kids
and if we're going to do that, we
can't get excited about things
that jump up and may get in
our way. What we have to do is
figure out how we're going to
navigate around, over or under
,this .bstacle so.we can,,dovhat's,,
best.forkids.". ;, .'.-, .
sc Speakirtg ol lhsing'srgih'd' tdie
forest for the trees, Thoburn said
school grades are important but
only evaluate a single component
of what makes a school
successful.
"My dream is for Bradford
High School to be the place that
every student at Bradford High
wants it to be," he said.
Publiceducationis competitive,
he said, with districts competing
among themselves as well as
with private schools for students.
Today, schools have to know how
to market themselves.
"Historically, they haven't had'
to do that; they were the only
show in town," he said, adding
that public institutions have to be
willing show people all they have
to offer.
Public schools are assigned
grades, he said, but nowhere on
the report card is a school's band
or chorus program evaluated,
even if it's exceptional. The
same is true of athletics and
other extracurricular and elective
programs, yet all students-not
just those participating in the
programs-benefit from ' the
profile these successful programs
bring to a school.
"I have a responsibility to do
everything I can do to help those


S"We need to expect that they
will make mistakes, and we need
to work with them and help them
learn how to be adults:' Thoburn
said. Beyond the curriculum, he
said, schools are also charged
with helping students grow into
responsible citizens.
ro: T A lot will be expected of
Students as well. Whatever their
S4a involvement-whether they play
. football, are in the band or get
elected tostudent government-
. h . Thoburn is looking to these
students-to-'be cahmpuis leaders.
According to him, the most
\isible of those leaders should
int-ru be the seniors, and Thoburn said
S. the campus should really revolve
around the senior experience.
"Being a senior needs to mean
something,' he saidand in return
seniors will be expected to set an
example for the underclassmen
and be a source:of pride for the
community.

plate and demonstrate that kind

Spotlight on business: Warden Steven Singer of FSP
Sptihto uiness


New FSP warden
ready for the
challenge
BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Tines Staff Writer
Warden Steven Singer
left the door wide open to
be ribbed about his college
days by first attending the
University of Florida for
his bachelor's degree in
psychology then transferring
to Florida State University for
a master's degree in mental
health counseling.
One can't help but ask him
how he can be a Gator and a
Seminole at the same time.
"I'm a big fan of abnormal
psychology," he said.
In his new office at'Florida
State Prison, sits a life-
sized wooden Florida Gator
that sometimes dons a FSU
cap, depending upon who
is visiting the warden at the


particular time.
Not wanting to be like
everyone else, between
1974 and 1975 when his
college peers at FSU chose
internships with corimunity
health agencies or in school
psychology, Singer said he
went to the federal prison in
Tallahassee and asked for an
internship. They welcomed
him with open arms, saying,
"Sure, come on. We're doing
this stuff about therapeutic
communities, and you guys
from FSU could possibly
help us start some drug
rehabilitation programs."
That's where it all began for
Singer who said he assisted the
federal prison with developing
a group counseling program
for offenders.
After college, he found
himself lined up at the
employment office among
others who even had PhDs,
ready to take any job they
could get.
"The job market was just
horrible back then," said


Name: Steven F. Singer
Age: 57
Industry: Corrections
Job Title: Warden, Florida
Prison
Number of employees: 800
U.S. annual salary for wi
$55,000-$120,000+, depending
years of experience and the si
location of the institution, inc
retirement and health benefits.
For mental health and sub
abuse counselor: $35,000-,$47,0
Psychiatric nurse: $48,000-$(
all depending upon education, y
experience and patient load.

Singer. "I was newly married
and decided I had to take
something and ended up in an
orientation class to be a, debt
collector."
Singer knew immediately
the job wasn't for him when
they handed him a revolver
and put him in the worst
neighborhoods in the Miami
area.
Back at the employment
office looking at state jobs,
he spotted a listing for a
psychologist at the Reception


and Medical Center
in Lake Butler and
Singer landed the
State job.
Back then,
arden: Singer explained,
upon psychology was
ze and not as developed as
eluding it is now, but what
the job entailed
)stance was working in
00. the classification
65,000, depart m e.n t
ears of performing
psychological
screenings for
an average of
15 inmates a day where he
interpreted MMPI findings
and asked various questions to
discern their best placement.
After' about a year, he
requested a move to the
prison's in-patient psychiatric
unit, where he remained from
1976-1985.
"It was very, very interesting
to work with inmates who
were legitimately psychotic
or suicidal, as well as the
ones presenting themselves as


such," said Singer. See FSP, p. 7A

FSP:
Continued from p. 6A

'He transferred to Marion
Correctional Institution as a
psychological specialist from
1985-1989, but where he
really wanted to be was in
administration.
"One day, the warden
told me they were interested
in beginning therapeutic
communities to engage in
the principles of recovery.
He asked me if I would
bte interested in being a
department head over 13 staff
members and 190 inmates,"
said Singer. "I told him I
wasn't interested in the areas
of drug abuse or alcoholism,
but he told me I was doing it
anyway."
He was sent to New York
apd New Jersey to learn about
some very highly credentialed
treatment programs so he
could gather information
on developing therapeutic
communities in the prison.
: "When we all got there, we
satin on some group processes,
but we were taught almost
nothing, as they said their
techniques were proprietary
and their secrets couldn't be
released," said Singer.
But for a small fee of $5,000
each, they were willing to
come to Florida and teach the
system.
Singer instead opted to hit
the library at the University
of Florida and do hours and
hours of research on starting
therapeutic communities.
"I was in way over my
head," said Singer. "We were
interviewing a whole bunch
of inmates to see if they were
suitable applicants while
hiring staff at same time."
The rules weren't
completely clear or set, and
although Singer had the book-
smarts, he admittedly was not
street smart.
"I met some inmates that
were either program graduates
or treatment dropouts from
some of those programs up
north, and I hate to say this,
but they taught me some of
the concepts and techniques."
Singer also thought it a good
idea to hire some recovering
staff meni6iers""who were
wel1versedr in, the tiiphmqiqy
because, after all, they had
lived them.
"I was completely and
totally naive," Singer said.
,'We had the largest in-prison
program in the southeast at the
ime, but I knew one thing for
'sure. If the floors were very,
.ery clean... I mean highly
,vaxed... if the inmates all had
nice uniforms with belts on
and shirts tucked in and if I
could train them allto say 'yes
ma'am' and 'no sir,' it would
all be wonderful.
People who later toured the
program would comment on
how clean the area was and
how helpful and respectful
the inmates were. They would
often say things like, "We have
no idea what you're doing
here, Mr. Singer, (because
.truthfully, they didn't know
what a treatment program was.
supposed to be like', either),
but. it sure is working, so keep
it up."
Singer named the program
"Doin" Time, Gettin' Straight"


because inmates were always
telling him all they wanted
to do was their time, and get
their lives straight.
"We learned together and
rocked along until 1989,"
Singer said, "hiring more
and more sophisticated staff
over time, as we gained the
ability to screen out some
of the poorer candidates
and get appropriate ones for
treatment."
In 2007, Singer was
nominated into the Who's
Who of Prevention by the
Florida Office of Drug
Control. He was credited
as being instrumental in
the. implementation of an
innovative pilot substance
abuse re-entry, program for
inmates with a significant
and violent criminal history.
He was also recognized for
promoting prevention for staff
as well as inmates.
"We got lots of national
attention," Singer said. "We
had numerous legislative
tours and had several articles
written about the program."
Through the encouragement
of one of his staff members,
Kevin E. Early, he took part
in co-authoring a book titled,
"Drug Treatment Behind
Bars: Prison-Based Strategies
for Change."
A still widely used textbook
today, Singer was asked to
write a chapter on what one
must do to start a successful
program in prison. Singer
titled his chapter "Essential
Elements 'of, the Effective
Therapeutic Community in
the Correctional Institution: A
Director's Perspective."
While still at Marion CI,
then Florida Department of
Corrections Region 3 Director
Joseph Petrovsky toured
Singer's program and offered
him a position as his assistant,
a position he held for two
years.
An assistant warden
position then came available
at Gainesville Correctional
Institution where the entire
mission of the prison at the
time was ,drug treatment.
Singer jumped at the chance.
Because DOC tends to not
want administrators to stay in
the same place too long, he
was transferred to assistant
,arden at .Baker .Crrectional
Institution '? ,9I Th s hsW
a larger prison, so Singer felt
it was a good opportunity
for hira.to learn. In 2003, he
returned to Gainesville CI as
Warden for one year before
diving in with both feet and
asking to be considered for a
larger prison.
In 2004, he was sent to


Columbia Correctional
Institution where he was
put in charge of an inmate
population three times larger
than before.
"Columbia was corrections
at its best," said Singer.
"With 2,500 inmates in four
units, we had a little bit of
everything, including some
really rough inmates and gang
activity. Approximately one-
third of the inmates had life
sentences so it was quite a
challenge."
On June 19 of this year,
Singer became the new warden
at Florida State Prison.
Upon first being offered
the job, Singer said he was
hesitant.
"It was a huge responsibility
to take on, considering the
rough inmates with abnormal
mental health issues and the
history of the prison itself,"
he said.
Fortunately, the prison also
has a very well-experienced
staff that Singer said he is
very supportive of, taking
time to visit with them in their
positions as often as possible.
FSP has the capacity 'for
2,400 inmates in its main and
west units. There are 800 staff
members plus various other
positions. All the inmates
are locked up in individual
cells. Singer said 824 inmates
have significant psychiatric
needs, 353 have serious
medical conditions requiring
close monitoring and 66 are
currently sitting on death
row.
Singer said, "Here, we are
dealing with.the worst of the
worst offenders in Florida.
This is the end of the road, the
last stop."
Florida State Prison is
where all death executions
in Florida take place. Since
the reinstatement of the
death penalty in 1979, DOC
statistics show that death row
inmates average just over 12
years before execution. The
average age of those executed
is 45 years old, for' crimes
they committed at the average
age of 30. The next execution
is scheduled for John Richard
Marek on Aug. 19.

It was, however, 26 years
ago that Marek and his
accomplice RaymondWigley
stopped to assist two.women
who were stranded oh the'
Florida Turnpike in Broward
County when their car broke
down. Unable to repair the
car, Marek persuaded one
of the women, Adella Marie
Simmons, 47, to ride with
them to a service station for
help.


Worship in the House of the Cord...
Somewhere this week!

The churches and businesses listed below

Last month, as representatives of the First Baptist Church of Jacksonville Prison
Ministry, Tim Tebow and several other Florida Gators football players gave
motivational speeches to Inmates and signed autographs for staff at Florida State
Prison. Here, Tebow posed for a photo with Cindy Brown.


Instead, the men drove
Simmons to a desolate beach
more than 60 miles from her
car.
At the trial, Wigley testified
that they forced Simmons into
thd observation room of a
lifeguard stand. There, they
burned areas of her body, and
she was forced to perform
oral sex and was sexually
assaulted numerous times
before being strangled to
death with a bandana.
An officer who observed a
truck parked near the lifeguard
tower stopped to speak to
Marek and Wigley about
being on the beach at 3:30
a.m. Unaware of what had
just taken place, he released
them.
Simmons' body was
discovered by a lifeguard a
few hours later. That evening,
the pair was arrested after it
was found they were driving
a stolen truck. A search of
the truck revealed a gun and
Simmons' stolen jewelry.
Fingerprints at the.lifeguard
tower matched those of
Marek and Wigley. Only
Marek's fingerprints were
located inside the observation
deck where Simmons' body
was found, however, both
men were charged with her


murder.
Wigley received a life
sentence and died while
incarcerated in 2000. Marek
is spending his final week on
earth in a death row cell at
Florida State Prison.

"What ,we are faced with
at FSP," Singer said, "is
addressing the needs of
some of the most violent,
problematic offenders in
Florida, and we have-to do -
this in a humane manner. This
includes successfully carrying
out law-mandated executions
in a flawless and humane
fashion."
Because the inmates are-so
problematic, a job at FSP is
rather stressful.
"One of our biggest
challenges is continuing to
do what is needed to keep our
staff safe."
Keeping them safe includes
their mental health as well.
Singer said they are constantly
in a coaching and mentoring
mode'with staff, teaching them
tech Hi q uesithat -wvrllP bs idafr~"
assist them. in keeping their
mental balance.
Another challenge Singer
said. he faces is seeing to it
that FSP presents a positive
image in the eyes of public,


centered around public safety
needs.
"We want to be part of
the solution, not part of the
problem," Singer said.
Other areas the warden
plans to tackle are containing
costs associated with repairs
and maintenance on the aging
faitility.
"Construction began
in 1961 and the main unit
opened in 1972, so you can
imagine the repair needs on
an increasingly tight budget,"
he said.
He is also working on
providing incentives for
acceptable behavior in inmates
as well as expanding re-entry
initiatives such as adult basic
education and mental health
services for offenders who
will some day be released
back into society.
Singer is married to Jeanne
Singer, the chief assistant state
attorney for the eighth judicial
circuit, working directly with
Bill Cervone. They have- a
24-year-old Oaughter, Julie,
in pediatrics at St. J6seph's
Hospital in Tampa who is
currently working on her
master's degree. They also
have a son, Jeremy, 28, who
is an-executive for Exxon
Mobile in Houston, Texas.

THANK YOU!!!
I, Stephanie Crosby, would like to thank all of my sponsors from Union County that supported my.
participation in the 2009 Miss Gainesville Scholarship Pageant. This pageant is affiliated with the
Miss Florida/ Miss America Organization. It is a non-profit corporation that is the largest
scholarship provider for young women in the world. On March 7, 2009, I was able to express my
opinions and talent to a panel of five judges and hundreds of emphatic fans. I'am forever grateful
for the continual encouragement and guidance that I receive from the.people of this great county. It
is because of you that I.was able to take part in such a memorable and rewarding event. By-
inspiring young people to follow their dreams and offering a helping hand, one is giving back'to
their community. This is just what this group of individuals, businesses, and families has done for,
me. Through monetary support, prayers, and many confidence building pep talks, I was able to.
actively pursue an educational dream While displaying multiple characteristics and skills that I have
gained over the past few years. I was given the "Spirit Award" by Executive Directors Merissa
Amkratit and Jason Curchy for my cooperation, ability to get along with the other competitors, and.
having things done before or on time. I may not hold the title of "Miss Gainesville" or "Miss
Alachua County", but what I did gain from this pageant is, far more valuable than a crown.'
Opportunities such as the Miss Gainesville Scholarship Pageant have enabled me to further develop
my leadership and communication skills, ability to cooperate with a diverse group of individuals,'
and have sharpened those tools, such as responsibility, that are essential in becoming successful.
Thank you, Union County for making the past 18 years of my life something to smile on. You are
the ones that made this once in a lifetime experience possible!

Starke to take control of recreation r--
Sr, ,, / ,,I-�


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

By the time the Starke City
Commission met in a workshop
on Aug. 10 to discuss the future
of recreation in light of the
city's recent audit, it seems the
decision had all but been made to
bring the recreation department's
financial activity under city hall's
umbrella.
Since the previous audit
workshop, the city received
an opinion from the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs classifying the recreation,
board as a dependent special
district because it was created by
ordinance for the special purpose
of conducting recreational
programming in the city.
Accordingly, the city was
instructed to formally register
the board as such or, alternatively,
amend its ordinance to clarify that
the recreation board exists only
to advise the city commission
about recreational matters.
Mayor Wilbur Waters indicated
the city wanted to find a way to
solve the. problem and make:
everyone happy. The solution
was to set up the recreation
board .as an advisory body and
do as the auditors from DDF
CPA Group had recommended
by accepting authority over the
funds generated by recreation
programs.
Otherwise, the city would need
to turn over those and the funds it
allocates annually for recreation
to the recreation board and allow
it exclusive authority over its own
payroll, operations, facilities,
etc.
Everyone seemed to agree that
was not a workable option. It
would turn the recreation board
into its own governmental entity
akin to the board that governs the
tri-county landfill, for example.
;-What currently exists,
according to City Attorney Terry
Brown, is a hybrid. The city has a


budget for recreation employees,
facilities and certain operational
costs. Through program fees and
fundraisers, the recreation.board -
also has its own pot of money that
pays for programs, operations
and certain personnel costs.
The city ordinance concerning
recreation will be amended to
untangle these responsibilities.
A special restricted fund will
be established for all revenue
from recreation programs and
fundraising, and within that fund
money for each program will
be accounted for separately. No
money will be expended from
this fund except for approved
recreational purposes.
Just as will be the case with
recreational programming, the
recreation board .will make a
recommendation to the city'
commission on the expense of
these funds, but final approval
will rest with the commission.
Brown said there should really
be no substantive changes in the
way the recreation board does
business.
The head of the recreation
board, Pat Welch, was not
present at the workshop, but he
was said to be in support of the
solution. Recreation Director
Alica McMillian was concerned
about the availability of financial
information to the board and she-
also wanted to make sure that
only. money from the recreation
fund, would only be spent on
recreation.
She was given that assurance.
Recreation Board Member
Chrissy Allen had some questions
directed at the auditors. She
wanted to know why these issues
were just being raised now, and
Commissioner Carolyn Spooner
said she had the same question.
Regarding increased costs,
Allen said she felt recreation
had been singled out among the
city's departments and was being
picked on, but she said she had
no problems with the way things

were being reorganized.
"Money is money, and as long
as it's being spent on kids, I'm
OK with it', she said.
Waters said no one was picking
on the recreation department,
and DDF's Eddie Douglas
clarified that the comment about'
recreation's increased costs
was highlighted because of an
average 10. percent -increase in
costs every year for the last 30
years. He added at that rate,
the budget would double every
7.2 years, and the city couldn't
sustain that level of growth.
While some said the issues
over recreation board's
relationship in city government
and-the management if its moneys
separate from the city had not
been raised before, Waters said
it had and the commission had
turned its head.
Allen said while it may have
been discussed for years, she
didn't recall seeing it in writing.
Just last year in the audit
for 2007, however, there was
a recommendation that the
purchasing and accounting
functions in the recreation
department be consolidated with
finance. In prior years, recreation
has been written up for other
financial issues that raised
concerns about who should be in
charge of those funds.
Although the separateness of
the recreation board was noted,
no recent audits has ever raised
the issue of whether the recreation
board was a special district or
an advisory board. DDF's Lora
Douglas said everyone, including
the auditors, felt the board was
advisory in nature, until she
began looking closer to the
definition of special districts.
The issue was, if recreation is
an advisory board, should it be,
handling money? As an advisory
board, the answer apparently is
no.

DBPR keeps business honest with regulation


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
A Melrose man sponsored
several advertisements in the
newspaper to warn the public
about a building contractor
who had essentially been
banned from ever working in
Putnam County again.
An anonymous caller said
t relative was claiming to do
construction work for elderly
people, but was in fact.ripping
them off. We need DBPR.
The Department of Business
and Professional Regulation is
a state agency that certifies or
licenses a host of businesses,'
presumably to keep them
honest.
The department licenses
nearly one million Florida
businesses and professionals
ranging from real estate
agents, veterinarians, and
accountants to contractors and
cosmetologists.
From May 31 to Aug. 31,
the department has been
registering contractors in
air conditioning, building,
electrical, plumbing, general
construction, tank lining,


roofing, mechanical, pool/
spa, precision tank testing,
residential construction, sheet
metal, specialty contracting,
underground utility and
excavation contracting,
underground utility,general and
residential building, roofing,
specialty structures and glass
and glazing contractor.
Licensees mustalsocomplete
one hour of continuing
education on specialty subjects
like wind mitigation.
Before applying for renewal,
board-approved additional
continuing education is
required for certified,
registered contractors which
must include one hour in
workplace safety, workers'
compensation, laws and
rules and business practices.
Licensed contractors not in
compliance with continuing
education requirements could
face nonrenewal ordisciplinary
action.
Last July, the DBPR sent
a message that unlicensed
activity would not be tolerated.
When investigators hit the
streets, they performed 64


percent more operations than
the previous year.
DBPR partnered with local
law enforcement agencies,
building departments, state
attorney's offices,and workers'
compensation representatives
to visit 210 construction
sites and check a total of 478
working individuals for state-
required licensure. DBPR and
partners issued 38 notices of
noncompliance, 64 citations,
and 15 cease and desists.
DBPR investigators
in Jacksonville arrested
unlicensed individuals who
left a victim out of money and
without a roof over her head.
The department also
launched a campaign to
make consumers aware .that
scam artists and unlicensed
contractors were out there.
"In the rush to stay cool this
summer, remember to check
your pool and AC contractors
licenses and references before
signing a contract and work
begins," said DBPR Secretary
Charles W. Drago.
The division combats
unlicensed activity through


sweeps, which consist of
checking licenses to ensure
compliance with state laws.
Stings consist of undercover
operations where known
or suspected unlicensed
individuals are targeted.
The Department of Business
and Professional Regulation's
Division of Hotels and
Restaurants also licenses
and inspects restaurants and
cafe's, coffee shops, hotels
and motels, to ensure that the
businesses are safe and clean.
DBPR tries to educate
operators about the impact of
proper handwashing,. glove
usage, and employee health
on foodborne illnessness.
The DBPR estimated that
proper handwashing alone
could eliminate nearly half of
all cases of foodborne illness
in Florida restaurants.
Penalties for unlicensed
contracting activity can
include a fine of up to $5,000
per incident. Persons engaging
in unlicensed activity can be
charged with a first degree
misdemeanor for a first
offense. In addition,any person


McRae resident chairs license board


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
McRae resident Noel
Thomas is very familiar with
the processes of the Department
of Business and Professional
Registration.
Two years ago, Thomas was
appointed by Gov. Charlie
Crist to serve on the electrical
contracting licensing review
panel. Now in his second term,
this year, Thomas will serve as
chairman of the committee;
Thomas said the panel meets
six times a year, holding a
two-day meeting in different
districts around the state.
One purpose of the panel is
to review consumer complaints
against licensed electricians
and electrical contractors.
"There's another division
entirely which investigates
unlicensed activity," Thomas
said.
iThe meetings are something

sides of the case. There is
a secretary or recorder who
documents the hearings.
Thomas said there was
no one area in the state of
Florida where complaints most
regularly showed up.
"There 'have been a large
number of complaints from
Miami and Brevard County,"
Thomas said. "But you would
expect that, since that area
also represents the largest
population." He said'they tend
to see more cases reported from
larger urban areas than rural
parts of the state.
Typical cases involve
contractors who didn't pull.
permits before beginning the
work; contractors who simply
abandoned an unfinished job
and jobs that didn't pass code
inspections. In many such
cases, it's the consumer who
- gets-&,contacted first, and the
consumer who ends up paying
for shoddy work.
When contractors are found


The hunter safety course is
required for everyone born on or
after June 1, 1975, to purchase
a Florida hunting license. The
FWC course satisfies hunter
safety training requirements for
all other states and Canadian
provinces.

a course can register online

to be at fault, Thomas
said, the punishment
can range from
fines to having their
licenses pulled.
Thomas said he
recommended that
consumers call or
check the DBPR Web
site www.myflorida. '
com/dbpr before
they sign a contract,
to see if there are
any complaints
against anyone in the
building industry.
It's always best to
go with a licensed,
insured company,
Thomas said, even
if an unlicensed
company is offering
a lower price:
"You could end up ''
getting little or none
of the work done or
an unsatisfactory job."
Thomas, said. "The cheaper
price is not worth the risk."

Hiring an unlicensed
individual can threaten the
financial and personal safety
of consumers, as well as the
livelihood of state-licensed
professionals.
Unlicensed individuals may
notcarry workers'compensation
or liability insurance, and
consumers may end up paying
for injuries on the job.
Unlicensed individuals often
underbid licensed professionals,
which results in law-abiding
professionals losing work to
those who do nol meet state
requirements. The Department
of Business and Professional

following:
* Always ask to see the

Tornadoes, Indians return to field looking to improve


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A new high school football
season is officially under way
with the start of practice on
Aug. 10. For Bradford and
Keystone Heights players, the
start of practice also marked a
new beginning as they look to
put the 2008 season behind
them.
Bradford and Keystone each
went 3-7 last year. It was
Bradford's first losing season
since 2002 and Keystone's
first since 2003.
"It was really tough, but it
was a big .� learning
experience," Bradford senior
Ryan DeSue said. "We learned
a lot about ourselves, really.
We learned what it means to
be tenacious, what it means to
stick together and what it
means to 'be part of a
brotherhood."
Having said that, though,
DeSue said he and his
teammates cannot dwell on last
year.
"The best thing for us to do
is to say forget about it and
move forward," he said. "It's a
new era."
Chase Chambers, a senior
Keystone player, said last year
was a learning experience as
well for he and his teammates.
It certainly provided a source
of motivation as the Indians
get ready for this season.
"I think every single one of
us has stepped up our summer
workouts," Chambers said..
"We're working out way more
and way harder. We're
definitely coming"in here as
one of the strongest teams I've
ever been on."
Keystone head coach Chuck


Rodney Mosley carries
the ball as the Tornadoes
run plays during the first
day of practice.
Dickinson has seen that effort
and dedication. He said
approximately 28 of the 32 or
33 players made their required
number of summer sessions in
the weight room. Also, during
a mile run the first day of
practice, only one player at
..each position did not finish in
the .established -time set for his
respective position.
"The kids have done some
running over the summer and
have done a good job in the
weight. room getting


themselves in shape,"
Dickinson said. "Hopefully,
we're ahead of the game
there."
Keystone senior lineman
Jonathan Stanley is looking
forward to this season. He has
seen the hard work put in by
his teammates and the
excitement they have in
regards to improving upon last
year.
"What happened last year
isn't going to happen this
year," Stanley said.
DeSue said was pleased with
what he saw out of his
teammates in regards to their
summer -yorkouts. He
especially singled out the
effort put forth by the
underclassmen, who were
always in the weight room.
For Bradford senior lineman
Steven Yeauger, the attitude
and work of his teammates
gives him reason to be
optimistic.
"Things are getting better,"
Yeauger said. "We're getting
better in the weight room.
We're getting stronger to

Starke church aims to help people find their purpose


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Stqff Writer
Most of us at some point
have probably asked ourselves,
"Why am I here on earth?
What is my purpose in life?"
A program beginning at the
First United Methodist"Church
of Starke this Sunday, Aug. 16,
at 9:30 a.m. aims at answering
those questions.
The church is embarking on
a "40 "Days of Purpose"
campaign, a series of sermons.
and small-groip studies:based&
upon the principles espoused.
by the Rev. Rick Warren in his
.New York Times best-selling
book, "The Purpose-Driven
,Life: What on Earth am.I Here
For?" Held every Sunday
through Sept. 27, beginning at
9:30 a.m., the program consists
of sermons and small group
studies at the church and the
Woman's Club, while home-
study groups will meet during
the week.
Five points of focus-
worship, fellowship,
discipleship, ministry and
evangelism-will be
presented, which Terry
Vaughan, who will serve as a
home host along with his wife,
Jennifer, believes will help
people who have gotten caught
up in the routine of life and
forgotten what their mission in
life is.
"I, for one, believe everyone
has a mission from the time
they accept Christ to the time
they pass on and go to
Heaven," Vaughan said.
Mike Moore, pastor of First
United Methodist Church, said
anyone is welcome to attend
40 Days of Purpose, whether
they attend church or not. Any,
person who is struggling with
some issue in his or her life,
whether it has to do with
relationships, family members
or simply v trying to
comprehend why God allows
some things to happen, should
attend the event, Moore said.
As an end result, Moore
hopes that people will go
through a life transformation,
either. through reconnecting
With the church or because
they accept Jesus Christ as
their personal savior.
"I'm hoping this will not
only change the members of
the church, but will change the
community;" Moore said. '"I
believe that's what Jesus hts


in the church's sanctuary.
Moore will present sermons
based upon the ideas espoused.
in Warren's book. Afterward,
people will watch a DVD of a
message given by Warren in
either the fellowship hall or the
.Womnan's Club. People will-
then be divided into groups of
10 to meet in classrooms for a:
time of discussion with a
classroom facilitator.
Those who can't attend the,
DVD presentation and small-
:.group discussions will have a
chance to do so throughout the
week at home meetings hosted
by First United Methodist
Church members, Moore Said
the.church has 21 home hosts,
who will host groups at
various times on weekdays or-
weeknights.
Vaughn said the small-group�
setting is better suited for
fellowship. In turn, such.
fellowship may encourage
someone to start attending
church, Moore, said. That
attendance may be sporadic, he
said, but-it would be a positive
start.
"The result might be they
come just for Easter or
'Christmas," Moore said, "but
that's OK."
Moore has been the pastor at
First United Methodist Church
of. Starke for 18 months. He
acknowledged the church
members' faith in supporting
their relatively new pastor in
bringing the 40 Days .of
Purpose to their church and, as
Moore put it, entering
uncharteredd waters."
"There has been a lot of
buzz about 40 Days of
Purpose," Vaughan said.
Moore proposed the idea to
his church in October. The
church he previously pastored
in Jacksonville participated in
the campaign as well. Moore
read the Warren book, saying
its components seemed just
what.-his church needed--a
church that had grown from a
congregation of 21 to 500,just
moved 'into a new, larger
building and was
contemplating its next step as
it now had room for new
- members.
"(The book) shed some light
on key components of
Christianity I felt like would
really have significant effect
on our congregation," Moore
said.

That, though, was far from
the truth.
"I had an experience that
was just incredible with some
other pastors," Moore said.
That is why Moore
encourages other pastors in the
area to attend the event. He
does understand, however, that
their responsibilities lie with
their own churches, first and
foremost. Therefore, he
recommends that wives of area
pastors attend, so they can then
share what they learned with
their spouses.


Moore said the program is
also ideal for other church
leaders.
"Any pastor who would like
to get some of their leadership
members excited and on fire,
they need to send them at least
to the (DVD) simulcast,"
Moore said.
As for its impact on
members of the First United
Methodist Church of Starke,
the 40 Days of Purpose
services and lessons give every
member a chance to . ribute

every member, whether it's

have not done much or been in
the forefront of church events
in the past. Vaughan agreed.
"There will be a job for'
everyone," Vaughan said. "It
does take a team effort to pull
this off."
When 40 Days of.Purpose is
over, Moore would like to see
small-group studies continue
in people's homes under the
name "40 Days of
Community."
The event is also a chance
for the church to gain new
members. Moore said he
would like to see 200 new
members or so as a result, but
he stressed he doesn't want the
pews filled with people who
are there for any reason other
than the fact they have
accepted Jesus Christ as their
savior and are now seeking to
serve him.
"Of course, you want
anybody here," Moore said.
"You'd never complain, but
I'm not trying to do this to fill
up my church and say, 'I have
a big church with a lot of
people.' I'm trying to do this
to reach people and reach our
community."
What Moore wants to see
are transformed lives, much
like he had the chance. to
witness when his Jacksonville
church held its 40 Days of
Purpose event. For example, a
man who worked in radio and -

against other schools.
"You were lining up and
scrimmaging all day long,
which was good," Hoard said,
"but some of them were doing
it on heart and desire without a
lot of technique and
fundamentals."
Hoard believes participating
in the camp puts the Tornadoes
ahead of some programs at this
point in the season. If nothing
else, it provided a bonding
experience.
"We all got to know each
other better," Yeauger said.
One thing the camp
experience did was show the
Bradford players what can be
accomplished with hard work,
Hoard said. The Tornadoes
were able to defeat larger
schools the first day of the
camp, but then turned around
and lost to those same teams
the next day when they didn't
put forth the same effort they
did the first day.
"They didn't play hard every
day," Hoard said, "but when
they played hard, we beat
some 6A schools."
Hoard admitted his team did
not match up very well with a
lot of the bigger schools at the
camp, but the Tornadoes held


their own and came away with
wins over those schools.
DeSue said that experience
will be beneficial this year.
Bradford still has a tough
schedule, he said, hut it will
seem easier compared to the
competition at the camp,
which had Ihe Tornadoes
scrimmaging against eight
teams each day.
"We faced some big schools
and took a lot of hitting,"
DeSue said, "but we showed
we won't back down from
anybody. After the game, one
school asked what size we
were. They were thinking we
were 6A or something. We
told them 2B. They were pretty
surprised they just got handled
by a 2B team."
As for this year's schedule,
which is composed of new
district teams, DeSue said he
did not focus too much on that.
He and his teammates are
taking the season one game at
a time. One game, though, that
both DeSue and Yeauger are
looking forward to occurs right
off the bat when the Tornadoes
host Keystone Heights to open
the season on Sept. 4. The
Tornadoes lost a tough 14-13
game against the Indians last

year. A blocked extra point
prevented Bradford from tying
the game.
It's certainly not an easy
way to start the year. Keystone
has won four of thle last fi;e
meetings.
"It's really exciting,"
Yeauger said. "You've got to
have your 'A' game going that
first game. You can't slack off
even a little bit. Keystone will
bring it to you."
Keystone's Chambers thinks
it's "awesome" that his team
opens the season against their
neighbor rival, but another
game he's.looking forward to
is against new district
opponent Trinity Catholic
since the Celtics are
considered the "powerhouse"
of the district, he said. Trinity,
which will visit Keystone Oct.
9, was the state runner-up last
year. The Celtics won a state
championship in 2005, while


also finishing as a runner-up in
2006.
"We're all curious to see
how we compare to Trinity
Catholic," Chambers said.
"We'll go out there and give
them our best shot no matter
what and see what happens."
As for Stanley, he is eagerly
looking forward to the last
game on the schedule.
"The one I'm looking
forward to is our (Nov. 13)
homecoming against
Interlachen," Stanley said. "It
will be my last game at the
high school:"
That's barring a trip to the
playoffs and the possibility of
hosting another game. The
Indians last earned postseason
berths in 2005 and 2006. A
return trip to the regional
playoffs would certainly make
for a special senior season.
) "I hope we can (return),"
Stanley said.

Open air
services needed
Dear Editor:
Pastor Zefnia Durham is
greatly missed from this
community. He passed away a
few weeks ago.
Some years past, he and his
wife went with my sister and
me before the city commission
to clear the way for "open air
services."
He and other participating
riinisters gave hope to our
community by preaching the
gospel of Jesus Christ from
time to time and street to
street. Witnessing was also
done by other participants.
We are trying to get started
again with open air services in
our community. The gospel of
Jesus Christ is needed and
those who hear and receive it
may claim the promises of
Jesus Christ.
Lord, please send more of
your Holy Spirit upon us and
more wisdom from on high.
Amen.
Maurice J. White

Pray for better
days for all
Dear Editor:
One would think, with our

gas sky high, health insurance
a big issue and two wars going
on, that the president of the
United States has more to
attend to than giving a beer
party to quell his "stupidity"
foot-in-his-mouth remark. To
me, his remark showed pure
racism.
During -.campaigning, he
talked strongly about harmony
between races. His "'stupidity"
remark probably caused more
backlash that the white
policeman did doing the job
that he is paid to do.
I can't help but wonder if it
had been a white scholar and a
black policeman, would the
beer party have been held?
On other issues that's going
on, I feel the same way a writer
in the Gainesville Sun feels.
He said the Obama
administration is scheming to
turn our country into a Marxist
state. . He said the
administration continues on
their quest to first destroy our
economy and then, with
vengeance, our personal
freedoms, liberties, and finally
our nation. To be honest,
-these- --times- -would, make
"Hoover Days" seem like the
Fourth of July party;
I'm not trying to be smarter
than any other person, but I
visualized these kind of things
happening before the election.
It may be that God is trying to
show us something. Pray hard
times will soon pass and our
country gets back to it's old
self. God bless America.

Dental hygiene
is important
Dear Editor:
As everyone continues to
struggle with the present
economy and its effect on
household budgets, dentists
throughout the nation have
seen a noticeable drop off in
the number of patients making
or keeping their appointments
with their dental hygienists.


While understandable, this
cost-cutting effort can become
futile as it leads to larger
expenses and problems later.
As dentists committed to
prevention, we believe that the
process that enables dentists to
detect gum disease in the
earliest stages, leads to
conservative therapy that can
be performed before the disease
and infection are allowed to
Progress. What most of the
public calls dental cleaningg"
are really "prophylaxis"
preventive measures to protect.
the patient from the start or
progression of the disease
process.
It is important that the
public knows that it is no
longer just about teeth
anymore., There is strong,
evidence, indicating that toxins
and bacteria released by the
gum cells can get into the
bloodstream daily. These
toxins and bacteria go
anywhere the blood flows.
This. leads to an increased risk
for more serious health
problems.
Mouth bacteria can attach to
platelets causing heart-
stopping clots to form.
Keeping your gums healthy
can reduce your risk for a heart
attack. Further, studies have
shown that those with long-
standing gum disease are more
likely to have strokes.
Periodontal or gum disease
can make it more difficult for
people with diabetes to control
their blood sugar. The disease
can increase periods of time
when the body functions with
a high blood sugar level,
increasing risk for diabetic
complications.
For women who are
pregnant or considering having
children, those with gum
disease are seven to eight
times more likely to give birth
prematurely to low ,birth
weight babies, due to. the
release of inflammatory
chemicals.
So, is it worth the risks to
put off those . hygiene
appointments? You decide. If
you . agree that prevention
matters, we are here to help.

Bradford grad Riddick joins


Flagler softball program

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
7Telegraph Staff Writer
She established herself as
one of the top strikeout
pitchers in the nation among
junior college programs. Now,
2007 Bradford High School
graduate Kelly Riddick will
look to do the same at the
Division II level as a member
of the Flagler College
program.
"'I just thank God for it,"
Riddick said of the opportunity
.to continue her playing career.
"Without him, I wouldn't even
be here.".
Riddick, who played two
years for Central Florida
Community College, recorded
262 strikeouts in 196 innings
this past season, which
averaged to 1.334 strikeouts
per inning. That was tops
among Florida schools and
fifth best in the nation.
She finished her Central
Florida career with 425
strikeouts, which fell 12 shy of
the school record set in 2001.
Riddick helped lead the
Patriots to the state tournament
for the first time since 2006
this past season with a 19-9
record and an ERA of 1.462.
Central Florida defeated the
nation's second-ranked team,

allowed twup:hits and struck out
nine to earn that win.
Riddick was named FCCAA
Pitcher of the Week twice this
year as she helped Central


Florida compile its first
winning record (33-23) since
2001. She was a first-team
Mid-Florida Conference
selection and a second-team
AII-FCCAA pick. Riddick was
voted her team's MVP and
received the school's Female
Athlete of the Year award.
They are impressive
accomplishments for a player
who admitted she was not sure
if she wanted to continue
playing the sport. Riddick said
she thought maybe it was time
to explore other avenues in
life, but after much prayer, she
stuck with the sport.
"I didn't want to give it up,"
she said.
Riddick received offers from
eight schools, including
Division I programs Mercer
University in Macon, Ga., and
Florida Gulf Coast University
in Fort Meyers. The offer.from
Mercer came despite the fact
coaches had not seen Riddick
play. The offer was based upon
stats and the recommendation
of Central Florida coach Kerri
Ryskamp, who also attended
Mercer. Therefore, Riddick
admitted she was not sure she
was a Division I-caliber
player.
She said she knew she could
play at the Division I level,
though, after Florida Gulf

Mighty Mites practice the bear crawl on their first day of practice. The first Jamboree
games are Aug. 29



KH Pop Warner ready to kick off


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor


On a hot and muggy Saturday'
two weeks ago,the Lake Region
Pop Warner cheerleaders and
football players began their
season.
This year, the program has
added a Tiny Mites team, to
its traditional lineup of Mighty
Mites, Junior Pee Wees, and
Pee Wees. The program still
needs kids. especially older
kids, to come out and sign up.
This year, staffer Terry
Stanley is organizing the Lake
Region Pop Warner Brax Spirit
Cups fundraising program. The
Pop Warner staff and players
will be passing out order forms ,
and will have samples for
people to view at the start of
the, season.
Cheerleading coach Amy
Wells said she is still looking
for girls, ages five to 15 to join
the cheerleader squads, but the
girls who were there made up
for the missing teammates and
*didn't let the heat. stop them.
Call (352) 235-2158 for further
cheerleading information.
"Get that ball. Stop 'em,
stop'em, stop 'em," one eager
coach called out down the field
as the players scrambled.
Jason Parmeter is head coach
of the Tiny Mites (5-6), who
are playing as a team for the
first time this year.
Parmeter has the credentials -
He played for Bradford High
School and later for an Alabama


team. He was an assistant coach
,last year, and like all the other
coaches, he attended'the Pop
Warner coaching clinic in July.
Asked if the Tiny Mites
were anything like his college
teams, Parmeter said, "There
is some resemblance, but you
have to bring it down to a more
simplistic level. I love it," he
said. It may help that his son is
a Tiny Mite and his daughter is


a cheerleader.
"The Mighty Mites (7 to 9)
are looking pretty good this
year," said Matt Barber. He is
on the coaching team with Bill
Hopkins and Aaron Wells.
Everyone, .Tiny Mites,
Mighty Mites, football players
and cheerleaders alike are
gearing up for their Jamboree
game day at Little Rain Lake
Park on Aug. 29.

cheerleaders start their training on the Pop Warner cheerleading squads.

Girls 7-11 were treated to a fashionably good time by
the Starke Golf and Country Club, Windows by Lisa and
Thornton Photography, the sponsors of a Modeling 101
class, which was held recently at the country club. The
girls were treated to a tea party and mini manicures,
participated in a photo shoot and given tips on makeup,
hair, fashion and how to walk the runway. The weeklong
class concluded with a fashion finale, in which the girls
showed off outfits chosen to reflect their personalities.

RIDDICK
Continued from page 6B
Riddick play in this past
season's state tournament
before making their offer.
Still, Riddick did not want
the opportunity to play at the
Division I level to be her sole
reason 'for choosing Mercer.
That's why when she narrowed
her choices to two schools,
Flagler was there, offering her
the chance to be close to home
and part of a program that is
entering just its second year of
competition.


"It's just something I prayed
about and my parents prayed
about," Riddick said.
A week after the state
tournament, Riddick had not
heard anything else from
Mercer concerning its offer,
though she called the school
and left a message. Flagler
coach Kristen Overton, who
had stayed in touch with
Riddick, said she needed to
know soon. whether Riddick
would accept her offer.
Riddick had still heard nothing
from Mercer after letting a
couple of days pass, so she
took that as a sign from God
and signed with Flagler.
Now, Riddick looks.forward

to being part of a program
trying to establish itself.
"I hope I can really
contribute to the program," she
said.
Riddick said she has
probably been working as hard
as she ever has this summer in
preparation for the upcoming
season. Her goal is to be the
number-one pitcher for
Flagler.
"I'm pushing myself as
much as I can to get better and
to help the team out," Riddick
said.
Prior to going to Central
Florida, Riddick earned third-
team Class 4A all-state honors
and first-team Class 4A-6A
Gainesville Sun all-area
honors as a senior at Bradford
High School-her first full
season as a starter. She posted
a 19-10 record that year with
an ERA of 1.17 and 231
strikeouts in 192 innings.
Riddick has averaged 219
striketous per season the last
three seasons.
