Marion County


fugitive nabbed


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Major Garry Seay with
the Union County Sheriff's
Office said a man wanted in-
connection with an armed
robbery in Marion County was
located in Lake Butler after he
allegedly stole a pair of dirt
bikes twice-from the same
local resident.
According to Seay, several
days ago, a Lake Butler man
reported to the Union County
Sheriff's Office that his two
dirt bikes had been stolen from
his residence. The sheriff's
office received a tip with a
suspect's name and description
of an unidentified accomplice.
The dirt bikes were no sooner
. recovered when they were
stolen yet again by the same
suspects.
Around the same time, Seay
said he was contacted by the
Marion County Sheriff's Office


in regard to a suspect with
family ties -in Union County
who was being sought for
questioning in regard to an
armed robbery where shots
were fired at a convenience
store clerk in Marion County.
The suspect was also wanted
for questioning in the theft of
ATVs and dirt bikes in Marion
County.
The suspect, Fredrick
Roberts, 17, of Reddick, was
positively identified as the
same suspect who had twice
stolen the dirt bikes in Union
County. The stolen Lake Butler .
bikes were recovered&-at- the-, :
residence of Roberts' father in
Providence.
Roberts was taken into
custody last Thursday by UCSO
deputies 'without incident. He
was later picked up-by Marion
County authorities. Seay said
Roberts will face charges on
four felony counts of grand
theft in Union County.


UC stays with


insurer in spite


of rate hike


The current monthly
rate of $605 per
employee will
increase to $737

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
In a special meeting on
Aug. 28, the Union County
Commissioners met with
county insurance agent Lori
Thompson of Roberts Insurance
and Joe Acosta of BlueCross
BlueShield who presented cost
options for the county's health
insurance policy renewal.
The county's 'current health
insurance policy is up for
renewal on Oct. 1, and board
members, as well as other
county employees who have
mulled over the high premium
costs, originally hoped to get;:
rate quotes from other insurance -
companies to compare to
BlueCross. As it -turns out,
other insurance carriers do not
have a provider/doctor in UniQn
County that is in their network,
so commissioners chose to stay
with BlueCross.


Under the current health
insurance policy, the county
pays the rounded-off amount
of $600 per month per insured
employee. The actual monthly
premium is $605-7 per
month, with employees picking
up the $5.47 difference. For
an employee to add family
coverage, the monthly
additional .costto employees is
just over $1,300 per mor~th.
Thompson presented' the
board with a number of options
for policy renewal, all of which
showed an increase in monthly
premiums unless the board was
to choose a plan that increased
the employee's co-payment
from $500 to $1,500.
"We already couldn't give,
county employees a raise this
year and for someone making,
say, $9 an hour, there's just no
way they can afford that kind
of moneyy" said commissioner
Ricky Jenkins.
BlueCross representative
Acosta explained the reason
for the high premiums for the
sgrcdup plan is due to.the claims
experience. For example, the
78 'employees covered under,
the policy accumulated more

LB citizens still seeking splash playground


A poll was taken
with 95 percent
of community in
support of bringing
splash playground to
Lake Butler.

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Lake Butler city
commissioners invited
citizens of Union County to
a community-wide discussion
on Aug. 17, to give residents
a chance to offer input
regarding the re-submittal of a
grant application for a splash
playground in Lake Butler.
Parents, grandparents, and even
people without children came
out, many for the second time,
to show their support for the
project.
Last September, the city of
Lake Butler, with the assistance
the engineering firm Bailey,
Bishopand Lane (BBL),applied


for a splash playground grant
through the Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Grant
(FRDAP) from the 'Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.
Unfortunately, due to
statewide budget cuts, this
$200,000 grant project, along
with 194 other applications,
was not funded. It is unknown
whether there will be grant
funds from FRDAP available
during the next fiscal year,
however, because of the
community support for the
project, representatives with
BBL recommended the city
move forward with a new grant
application.
Of the several citizens who
showed up for the community
meeting, there were a few
negative comments brought up
by a concerned Lake Butler
resident, Cindy North.
North drilled the
commissioners on everything
from issues regarding liability
(addressed in a previous
community meeting) to her
concerns over the price of
chlorine for maintaining the
splash playground.


.. City Manager John Berchtold
told North that with what he had
learned from other communities
with similarsplash playgrounds,
any regular maintenance costs
would be very minimal to the
city.
"We already have a crew that
checks the community parks
each morning, and this would
already be on their route,"
he said. The location chosen
for the splash playground is
adjacent to the city's largest
playground and community
center at Lakeside Park.
In addition, Berchtold said
that there is a city employee
on call at all times during the
evening hours in the event of
an emergency with the system.
Commissioner Scott Cason
pointed out that the real costs
in maintaining the splash
playground would likely be in
the area of lighting.
"Also, we own the water,
but if something is torn up,
the repair costs would have to
come out of the city's budget,"
he said.
North asked, "With the
budget the way it is now, is that
something you think the city


should be responsible for?"
"' think so. I'm for it," said
Commissioner Ray Crawford.
"Do you pay city taxes?"
North asked.
"Yes, and I'm all for the
park," Crawford answered.
"Do you live in the city and
pay taxes on a house?" North
� asked him.
"No, not on a house, but I
did for a number of years,"
Crawford said.
Since the splash playground
is something that would be
available to all citizens of the
county and not just those who
reside in Lake Butler, North
wanted to know how much
, support the city gave the county
for the recreation department
each year.
"They give $8,000 each
year," Cason said. "In fairness,
the county has tax money that
goes into a special district that
assists in funding some of the
city properties."
Citizen Claudette Stoutamire
asked if the city would have
someone there overlooking the
kids in case they get carried
away at the park.
"No," Crawford said. "We


are not going to hire a city
employee to sit there and
watch kids. That's a parent's
responsibility. There are laws
that prohibit parents from just
dropping off their kids and
leaving them unattended and
they will be held accountable
for their child's actions," he
said.
Several citizens began
speaking all at once, but the
general feeling was that any
parent takes a chance when they
take their kids to a public park
to play, but that does not mean
the splash playground shouldn't
be built because something may
or may not happen.
First Christian Church pastor
Art Peterson asked if :use of
the splash playground during
holidays or Sundays-when
city offices were closed-
would be allowed. "Someone
is always on call," Berchtold
said.
Joe Pietrangelo with
the Union County Health
Department spoke up and said
that, the health department had
been working with the youth

Sheriff's history makes for laughs at roast


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Part roast, part toast, Bradford
County Sheriff Gordon Smith
was the man of the hour at a
fundraiser for the Bradford
County Historical Preservation
Society last Saturday.
Smith said he grew up red-
headed and freckled, so he's
able to take a joke. That's good,
because fryers including his good
pal and former employee Barry
Warren spent an hour taking
shots at him. Warren started
ofit by saying there actually
wasn't much to say about the
sheriff at all. Still, he and the
others managed to share a few
memories.
For example, ". Warren
remembered what a skinny guy
Smith was when the two played
football together in high school.
Smith was weak-side end. The
"weak" description in this case
was apparently literal. Warren,
of course, was strong-side end.
Fast forward to years later
when Smith joined the police,
department where Warren was an
investigator and eventually found
himself working for Smith.
The difference between
younger and older Smith was
this new Smith wanted people
to believe he was a stand up guy,
Warren said.
Being Smith's subordinate
had such advantages as being
repeatedly volunteered to
participate in the Kiwanis Club's
Mz. Ugly contests. After all,
Smith said it was part of Warren's
job being in charge community
relations. Eventually, Warren
gave in.
"So I went and borrowed his
dress":' Warren said, and when
it was all over, he asked Smith
why he had been put through the
ordeal.
"He said, 'Barry, we've been
together so long, I just had to see
what you looked like in a dress!'"
Apparently, he didn't look good
enough, because Warren said
that's why he was left behind
at the police department when
Smith became sheriff.
Dan Sikes said most people
don't realize Smith mel'his wife,
Stefanie, in high school.
"Of course, she was a student
and he was a school resource
officer!" Sikes said. "I'm not
going to say Gordon was robbing
the cradle, but she had her
bachelorette party at Chucky
Cheese!"
Sikes said his ..grandfather
always told . him that county
politics was like a cesspool-the
biggest chunks always float to
the top. Sure enough, Smith told
Sikes years ago he was going to
be county sheriff. -. '
"Of course, that was just after
they had burned a marijuana
field!" Sikes said. There's still
stories told about that day, he
added.
"As the wind blew and the
fire and smoke shifted, Gordon
bravely placed himself between
the smoke and the rest of the
officers!"
Sikes said the first thing he
thought when Smith was elected
sheriff came from political
strategist James Carville-there's
no telling what will happen when
you drag $100 bill through a
trailer park. But there may have
been more behind the landslide
win.

Barry Warren taunts Seminole fan Dan Sikes by placing
his Gator tie on his shoulder.


Clay County Sheriff Rick Besler joined Gordon and Stefanie Smith for dinner at the roast.


"It's not like Gordon went
out and got a fistful of absentee
votes from the nursing homes,
but when I found out that Archie
Tanner and Steve Futch were the
chairmen of his voter registration
drive ..." he trailed off.
Sikes also called into question
Smith's judgment, such as
supporting the appointment of
Jeff Johnson as head of the police
department.
"Pumpkin! There's a
(nickname) that will strike fear
in a criminal!"
But perhaps worst of all was
a tradition Smith started when
attorney Sikes was questioning
him one day in court, and Smith
had to consult his notes for an
answer. Smith looked down and
proceeded to scratch his nose-
with his middle finger.
"He has shot me the bird in
front of judges and juries ever
since, and he's started other law
enforcement officers doing the

Sikes it:ii'fle i 6 t�(tt
his fellow fryers, too. He said
when it was reported Warren
had told a resident concerned
about a possible death in the
neighborhood to call him back
when she smelled something, he
had given new meaning to the
teim "nosey neighbor." Sikes also
said Judge George Pierce was
one of the most liberal judges on
the bench-at least when it came
to interpreting the rules of golf.
Pierce said he was actually
much tougher on a teenaged
Gordon Smith when the boy
showed up in his courtroom
for, of all things, climbing and
painting the Starke water tower.
That revelation deliglited the
crowd.
"You're embarrassing the
tar out of your mother," Pierce
told him that day in court
before demanding that Smith
apologize to her on the spot. In
spite of 40 hours of community
service washing fire trucks and
a warning that he had better not
return to court, Pierce said it
wasn't that long before he was in
trouble again.
. This time it was improper
disposal-improper disposal of


hog innards in the police dispatch
station!
"Couldn't you find any other
place to bury this stuff?" the
judge ak'ecT"Wnrfli'�"T'awas' the
closest place," ihe I..,i, Smith
replied.
Smith's mom,Sue Willingham,
continued the tales of his unruly
youth.
"His favorite saying growing
up was 'Don't tell mom,"' she
said when she took the podium.
Actually, he wasn't all that bad.
The roots of his career in law
enforcement probably came from
a childhood of protecting other
kids from bullies.
Sure, Smith needed some
discipline himself, but his morn
said when he turned 14 he decided
he was too old to get spankings.
He went to her and told her as
much, requesting that she treat
him like a man from that point
forward. He was, after all, like a
father to the younger kids.
Mom agreed she'd treat him
like a man, but with a warning
to remember what he had asked
for. Sure enough, it wasn't long
until the two got into it about
the whereabouts of a beloved
hat. Smith accused his mom of
throwing it out, but true tq her
word, she didn't spank him like a
child at this show of disrespect.


Jimmy Smith,
the sheriff's
brother,
shows that
most of his
comments
had to be
censored.


Nope. She hit
S^* him "good and
hard."
"I never had
to spank him
anymore. He
,was real good
after that:' said
Willingham,
who raised
Smith and his
brothers largely
on her own.
Smith's
younger brother Jimmy was
the final fryer for the evening.
Unfortunately, the list of things
'he could talk about was mo-sil)
crossed out. . . .
"This is what I wound up
with. Pretty much I didn't have
anything except for an 'a,' an
'and,' and 'you should have
seen the look on her face when
I walked through the bedroom
door!"' he said.
That was the extent of the bad
things he could say publicly,
so he went on to say how his
older brother had been a father
figure for him and his brothers.
Jimmy used to be able to brag
that he became a police sergeant
before his older brother-until
Smith took it two steps further,
becoming first a police chief and
then sheriff.
And the county couldn't have
chosen a better man for the job,
he said.
There were other kind words
spoken for Smith as well.
Contrary to his stories, Warren
said he really enjoyed workingfor
Smith at the police department,
an agency he changed for the
better.
"I'm proud to call him my
.sheriff, and I hope you all are,
too," Warren said.

Sikes said it has been a pleasure
watching Smith progress over the
years, and he wished him many
more years of success.
Willingham said it's wonderful
seeing one's children grow up
and live their dreams the way
hers have. Smith's dream was
to be sheriff. Not just sheriff of
anywhere, she said-sheriff of
Bradford County.
Smith's mom said he might

have poi nted out, but he was made

Motion to sell assets fails at heated FMPA board meeting


Dozens protest high
electricity prices

Cities interested in exiting the

Familiar stories, indeed.
According to The Ledger,
Fort Meade. signed the all-
requirements contract in 2000,
but it did not begin receiving
power from FMPA until this year
because of a preexisting contract
with Tampa Electric. Before
Fort Meade was paying around
$80 per 1,000 kilowatt-hours for
Wholesale power. That jumped
to $130 under FMPA, which dug
deeply into the utility profits the
city uses to help pay for services.
As a result the city had to raise
rates on customers. At more than
$172 per 1,000 kWh in July, Fort
Meade was the most expensive
municipal electric utility in the
state, according to a survey from
the Florida Municipal Electric
Association.
The same survey also shows


Starke near the bottom of those
municipal utilities, at around
$134 per 1,000 kWh. However,
any higher than 1,000 kWh, and
the city's residential rates jump.
At 2,500 kWh, Starke is among
the highest utilities again at
almost $375, but it's still not as
high as Fort Meade at almost
$413.
Thompson said Fort Meade
wants similar shows of outrage
from fed-up customers in other
cities.
"I told them I would try to
get some from here," Thompson
said, adding that Green Cove and
Lake Worth may do the same.
Any who do attend one of the
agency board meetings should
not necessarily expect a response
from the FMPA. Thompson
said the board's response last
Thursday was no response at all.
Still, Thompson, who is used
to hearing from local customers
when utility bills rise, said it
was the first such show directed


squarely at the full FMPAboard
and staff since he has been
involved with the agency.
"I've never seen people that
upset:'," Thompson said. The
FMPA CEO's was plastered on
one of the protest signs, he said.
Others begged to be let out of the
FMPA contract.
Starke, Green Cove Springs,
-Lake Worth and Fort Meade
have all given formal 'notice
of their intent to exit FMPA.
The contract terms still stand,
however, unless the cities plan to
buy their way out.
Starke gave its notice 5 years
ago, which leaves 25 years to go
unless something changes.
FMPA Assistant General
Manager Mark McCain said at
the conclusion of the commerit
period last Thursday, FMPA
officials offered to visit Fort
Meade to address electric rates
or any other topic as it has done
for Starke and other members.


Grants could renovate Lawtey parks, build more sewer

restrooms, tennis courts, picnic
facilities and parking. The
workshops were brainstorming
sessions and plans have not been
finalized, but ideas include the
conversion of the tennis courts to
a basketball court that would be
used more frequently.
On the other hand, the
recreation board continued work
on renovating the rec building,
even after grant funding was
denied last year, according to
Councilman Carlton Jones. The
result is that little remains to be
completed in the building, but
there was talk of expanding the
covered pavilion toward the rec
building to keep park users dry
when walking between the two
structures in wet weather.
The real obstacle to using the
building and renting it out to the


public again is the lack of sewer
service, which is something that
cannot be addressed until the
second phase of the city's sewer
project is under way-and that
depends on funding for a separate
grant. Water fountains could be
added under the FRDAP grant
without issue.
A walking or biking path at
this site wouldn't be feasible
because of the lack of land,
however. Because the grant is
site specific, it cannot be used to
tie together the other areas where
residents are walking;
Another possibility
is landscaping and park
beautification, so long as any
additional care would not pose a
burden on the city.
The second FRDAP grant
would fund improvements at


what is called Community Park;
around eight acres of land on
Middleburg Road. Existing
facilities include a ball field and
rec building..It has been leased to
a community group, but fell into
disuse after it was used a staging
and materials storage site for the
sewer project.
Despite its current appearance,
the park has potential, and the
hope is to refurbish the facilities
and add a second ball field

Water management updates, future plans aimed at protecting resources


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Suwannee River Water
Management District has
updated the Bradford County
Commission on recent changes
and coming plans aimed at
protected a resource that is more
limited than we thought.
"We don't have everything
we thought we had at one
point," said Steve Minnis, the
water management district's
government affairs director.
Minnis said the district
has had the same water use
permitting regulations since at
least the early 1980s. In order
to protect existing legal users,
ensure the resource is being used
in a reasonable and beneficial
manner, and to protect the public
interest, he said the district
recently published updates to its
water use permitting rules..
"We're getting into the 21Ps
century. Conservation, now, is'
going to be required;'," Minnis
said. "It should be just an ethic
that everyone has. We all need to
be good stewards and to ensure,
that the resource is used widely."
When asked, he was quick to
point out, however, that domestic
wells are exempt from water use
permits but riot well construction
permits.
Updates ensure more than
water preservation, he said.
For example, they also protect
landowners by requiring that


the owners themselves apply for
permits. Before, a tenant could
get a permit for water use or
well construction on someone's
property without his or her
knowledge. Prohibiting that is
only fair, Minnis said, because if
there is an issue with compliance,
the district must go after the
landowner.
Minnis also briefly discussed
Senate Bill 2080, which was
amended to give the director's
of the state's five water
management districts the
ability to approve water use
permits for developments. This
became a concern for some
since those applications would
no longer be going before the'
district governing boards, which
conducted public hearings on the
permit requests.
In the case of the Suwannee
River Water Management
District, Minnis said 90
percent or more of the district's
permitting authority had already
been delegated to the executive
director. Three or fewer permits
per year might have gone to the
board, he said.
One of the other things that
became attached to the bill
was the requirement that water
management districts continue
payments in lieu of taxes on
property they acquire and
take of the tax rolls in fiscally
constrained counties with fewer
than 150,000 people beyond the
prior 10-year requirement.
The law was originally


changed for state agencies in
2008, but water management
districts were exempt-until after
this year's legislative session. As
a result, Minnis gave the county
commission a check worth more
than $6,000.
Every five years, Minnis said
water management districts
are required to perform water
supply assessments to determine
if the enough water is available
to meet all demands, including
residential, agricultural and
industrial use. When a strain
on the resource is detected, the
district must enter a water supply
planning process.
The water system must be
protected from "significant
harm" so an adequate water
supply can be guaranteed for all
users, Minnis said.
The district has the highest
concentration of natural springs
anywhere in the world. More than
250 have been identified, and
more than 170 feed the Suwannee
River. They are particularly
important during low' flow
periods because they account for
72 percent of the river's flow, so
it's vital to the economy that the
springs and the aquifer that feeds
them be protected; Minnis said.
If water levels drop too low, then
those springs will dry up.
At the same time, a great deal
of the surface watersheds are
outside the water management
district's jurisdiction and even
out of the state and the Florida
Aquifer is an important source


of water for this state as well
as southern parts of Georgia,
Alabama and South Carolina.
That offers a complex challenge
to coordinate with other states
on water issues, Munnis said. If
Florida enacts regulations that
developers can escape by crossing
the state line, the state economy
could be impacted at the same
time those developments are still
impacting water supply here.
The district's current water
supply- assessment should be
done by December 2010, but the
Suwannee River and St. Johns
River water management districts
have already begun to work
jointly on a plan to respond to a
strain detected on groundwater
resources in the region.
A Unites States Geological
Survey has measured a significant
drawdown of the Floridan Aquifer
in a wide area that includes
southeast Georgia and the
Jacksonville metropolitan area,
according to Minnis. The water-
level decline is widening toward
the Upper Santa Fe River Basin,
which includes portions of Baker,
Columbia, Bradford, Union and
Alachua counties. Aquifer water
levels have dropped 30-40 feet
around Jacksonville and more
than 60 feet or more in the Tampa
Bay area and south. As the levels.
drop around' Jacksonville,. more
water flows from this area to
compensate. ;
Ground water withdrawal in
that area-more than 24 million
gallons a day-is significantly


greater than in the Suwannee
district, but this district is still
affected.
Minnis said it is difficult to
split responsibility between the
Suwan'nee and St. Johns River
water management districts
and important to realize that
Suwannee alone does not have
the funding available to address
these issues.
On the other hand, a map
projecting the impact to water
levels through 2030 shows the
drawdown spreading throughout
northern Bradford County if no
action is taken.
Minnis said counties need
to become engaged in process
because it is going to impact
water use locally. Part of regional
water supply planning involves
developing a menu of alternative
water sources that local
governmentsywill have to identify
when approving 'developments,
including the associated costs.
The goals going forward
include making sure there is an
adequate water supply, ensuring
water quality is not degraded
and supporting economic growth
by allowing for. reasonable
beneficial users and make sure
the plan meets district and local
needs.
Minnis said he hopes to
return annually to provide
similar updates to the county
commission.

The New River Solid Waste
Association is closer to acquiring
property in Union County from
Plum Creek Timberlands to serve
as a borrow pit.
Staff at the landfill us.e soil for
a number of uses, including daily
ground cover in the disposal
cells. Supply from the on-site
borrow pits is limited, and the
association wants to use the clay-
rich'soil that is left for future cell
construction. Hence the need to
find a soil supply elseWhere.
Rather than contract with
a company that would both
source and transport the soil, the
landfill association is looking at
purchasing its own source. The
association's executive director,
Darrell O'Neal, has presented
the board with around 130 acres
located just three miles from the
landfill.
The landis located on Northeast
S.R. 121 near the Union County
line, and the landfill has offered
almost $2,992 an acre, which
would total nearly $389,000,
depending on the final survey.
O'Neal assured the board
they had chosen 130 afres with
the least amount of unusable
wetlands possible. Still, required
setbacks from the property's edge
and the wetlands will leave only
a fraction available for mining
dirt.



Preschool
and family
story times at
the library
The Bradford County .Public
Library's next scheduled
children's program will be
Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 10 a.m.
This begins the regular, story
time for preschoolers.
The upcoming programs
include "Welcome Back" "Gator
Growl," "Chef's Surprise" and
"Hurry Up and Slow Down."
Story times are approximately
45 minutes and include reading,
music and a craft activity.
Children must be accompanied
by an adult.
The Starke Kiwanis Club will
be sponsoring a family story time
hour at 6:30 p.m. on Mondays
Oct. 5, Nov. 2 and Dec. 7.
Visit the library for a complete
schedule of events so you don't
miss out on a fall full of fun.


The landfill will have a
short window of time from the
execution of the contract to get a
special use permit from the Union
County Commission, conduct
surveys and an environmental
study, etc. to be ready to close on
the deal in October.
In addition to digging on the
land, the association will be
looking to improve the access
road. This was confirmed when
Union County Commissioner
Morris Dobbs asked about the
"residentgs'ho li.ve&i1he roid'ahid
, how !hauling.~.operations.,would
affect them. Assistant Director
Perry Kent said lime rock would
be used to build up the road and
there will be ditch improvements
as well.
Something else that might
ease resident concerns is a deed
restriction, that will prevent the
association from everestablishing
a landfill on the property.
Dobbs also asked if the
association still intended to
donate the'land to Union County
for recreational purposes once
mining operations have ceased.
Envisioned is a park with a
fishing pond established in the
mined area.
That was the direction given
by the association, although the
life of the borrow pit is uncertain.
According to O'Neal, it could be
as long as 15 years.
If testing discovers that there
is much less usable dirt on the
acreage, the association will be
back at square one, however.

Lisa parley, one field, located at
the school, has had to serve nine

picnic facilities and additional

which would extend service to
the portion of-the city that lies
west of u.S. 301.
Lawtey is eligible for up
to $600,000 under the grant
program, and. those who
qualify-close to 70 percent of
those surveyed-would receive
free sewer hookups because they
fall within the low-to-moderate
income range.
There are no estimates on the
ultimate cost of the second phase
because the project is still in the
engineering phase. Such projects
are costly, but should actually be
less so for Lawtey since it is not
building its own treatment plant.
The city has an agreement
with the Florida Department of
Corrections, which is handling
sewage treatment for the city.
The first phase of sewer
construction-funded by a
combination of money from
USDA (some of which has
to be paid back),. the water
management district and money
the. city, received in litigation


with the first contractor who
walked off the job-will place
130 customers on sewer east of
301. Work has been delayed by
soil problems but should proceed
once a source of compactable
soil is located.
Completion is expected by
March 2010, Harley said.
After the issues with the
original contractor, the lawsuit
and the loss of CDBG funds
that had been committed to the
project because the project was
not completed as expected, there
was not enough funding left to
place the entire city on the sewer
system. Lawtey took the $1.68
million it had remaining and
focused on running sewer to the
east side of the city because of its
proximity to the existing prison
sewer facilities.
Phase II would add another
135 customers. The CDBG
funding the city is pursuing for
next year would at least begin
that process.
Future growth will depend-on
the city being able to offer both
water and sewer utilities to new
businesses and residents.

Honda Owners Left


Out in the Cold

Local Honda Dealer Welcomes Them with Open Arms


Gainesville, FL
The Government's C.A.R.S. or Cash
for Clunkers program was wildly successful.
Consumers traded in older, gas guzzling
vehicles for new, safer, more fuel efficient
models with government rebates up to
$4,500. Amidst the jubilee of new car
sales, a particular group found them-
selves excluded from the excitement and
opportunities. Owners of late model
Hondas who thought they would qualify
found that they were left out in the cold
due to the Government's strict federal
guidelines.
Now that the Government's
program is over,. local Honda dealer

"With so many vehicles being

program, prices have begun to rise at the
auctions and everyone is searching for a
way to fill their lot and keep prices low.
We figured who better to offer up to
$4,500 for their trade-in than current
Honda owners who may have felt
snubbed during the Government
program," added Dillon.
Those who were unable to qualify for
the Government's Cash for Clunkers
program should bring their current vehicle
to Wade Raulerson Honda.

'his rounds, sometimes he drops
in on his own time to see that
housing development tenants
and their visitors are calm and
mostly law-abiding. Once in
while he gets paid by housing
development management to
be the development's courtesy.
cop, but usually not..Nor does
hJe get additional rewards out of
the Starke Police Department.
He has tried to get other
Starke police officers to take
shifts in the development, but
they decline. Even Spriggle
admits it's the hardest-edged
beat in Bradford County.
"I want'to say right up front,"
Spriggle said, "that there are
some fine people at T.H.E.
Apartments. Nice .people,
Godly people." Godly or not,
he knows most of them by
name. He said he believes in
positive social interactions with
people on his beat. He visits
with tenants and knows their
history. Some are in their 80s
and 90s and he makes note of
that.
Nice guy aside, he's seen it
all: drugs, domestic violence,
prostitution, fires, elderly
dementia, even a murder.
"A man killed his brother
over $200," the officer said.
A tenant muttered to Spriggle


the name of the man who did it
and kept on walking. "The man
who did the crime is in prison
now," Spriggle said.
In a well-kept file drawer in
his office at the Starke police
station, the captain pulls out
paper bags filled with stuff he's
found in T.H.E.'s parking lot.
One neatly folded brown
paper bag holds 61 small plastic
baggies, the kind popular with
drug dealers. That paper bag is
labeled April 4, 2006.
"I found all of those in the
front parking lot one morning
in 30 minutes," he said.
Inanotherbag isahypodermic
needle and a syringe. It was
outside an apartment he'd been
watching.
"I don't keep these as
evidence," he said. "I wanted
to keep these so when the
management tried to say 'This
is a drug-free community,' I
can show them it's not." he
said, shaking the bags as if in
somebody's face.
Spriggle knows the buildings
by heart, and has drawings of
the apartments by number. He's
counted the doors; he's counted
the windows.
He has tried to make sure
everyone--tenants, emergency
crews and dispatchers-know
that when you call for help
at T.H.E., you make sure
everybody knows which of
the two entrances to take.
Someone's life could depend
on it, including the emergency
responder's.


None of the apartments in
the complex have a front and a
back door, he said. Some may
have two ingress/egress doors,
but both face outward toward
the same central courtyard.
Management tells residents
not to put furniture in front
of windows at the back of the
apartment, in case they have
to jump out. That's fine for
residents on the ground floor,
but what about the people
upstairs, the residents point
out.
A few years ago, Spriggle
fought for, and got, city street
lights throughout the complex.
Intruders shot the lights out
for a while, but the officer's
response was to number each
of the dozen or so fixtures on a
map of the complex and report
them by number directly to the
city's operations manager. The
broken lights got fixed in a
jiffy, Spriggle said. These days,
they pretty much stay lit.
It's important to know who
lives at T.H.E., who's visiting
and who needs to be told to
move along. He has notebooks
with photographs of the exterior
of every apartment with every
head of household with a name
on the lease in each apartment.
He gets lists of known legal
residents in each apartment
too.
You can't help but notice that
all of them, on page after page,
are female.
"The biggest problem we
have in here are not the tenants,"


he said. "It's the
hangers on: the
ex-husbands or
boyfriends, fathers
of children or older
sons or younger
grandsons. After a
while, it gets to the
point that people
who trespass aren't
related to anybody
here. They just
come here to
do what they
do because they
believe they'll get
away with it."
In 2004, Spriggle
and the Starke
police issued 41
trespass citations at
the development.
He knows how
many were issued
the year after, and
the year after that.
The Starke
officer has tried
to make friends
with children
in the housing
development.
He passed out
candy, or let them
ride to the store
in his unmarked
vehicle, which


upset some parents, and the
police department didn't care
much for it much either. In
some cases, parents simply
didn't want their kids making
friends with the po-po, slang
for police.


Starke Police Capt. Don Spriggle.


Resistance broke down over
time, and Spriggle's unmarked
car became known around the
complex as the candy machine.
He once loaned the vehicle
to some out-of-town detectives
who were casing one apartment
while looking for a suspect.

Whicn the -visiting
detectives rolled into
the parking lot in
Spriggle's vehicle, the
officers thought they
- .- were driving an ice
cream truck when the
.-v" kids came running.
Spriggle and his
_-__ wife have taken., some
of the T.H.E. kids to
their church or fed
them in their home.
They've taken them
to nearby lakes, where
children saw a body
of water or a jet ski
for the first time.
The Starke cop is
worried about the
transition the complex
is undergoing these
days. Some elderly
residents who live in
first floor apartments
at T.H.E. will
now live in upper
floor apartments
at Whispering
Oaks, which has no
elevators. He's not
sure they can climb
the stairs.
He's also worried
about residents, who
haven't been told where they
will go or whether they will
receive any assistance to get
there. He's afraid they are about
to be dumped and he knows the
tenants themselves are afraid of
that as well.

Putnam Hall church runs fundra0e


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
The Abilene Missionary
Baptist Church in Putnam
Hall held daylong events last
Saturday, all of them designed
to have .fun, make the church
and the community more visible
and raise some money.
According to Abilene's
Youth Minister, Tim Flowers,
the funds will buy robes for the
youth choir.
Earlier this year, the church
held a barbecue and youth day,
to raise funds to take the youth
groups to Busch Gardens. By


the time the big day arrived,
Flowers and the church had
raised enough to take 60 young
people and chaperones to the
Tampa theme park.
Last Saturday's program
included a slow pitch softball
tournament, a car show and a
basketball tournament in the
afternoon. Which followed, of
course, the church picnic and
barbecue lunch.
On Saturday morning, there
were slow pitch teams visiting
from Starke, Palatka and Green
Cove Springs. Barbecue smoke
hovered over the grounds and
tents were set up for shade. A


number of Speedville residents
were also on hand from north
of Keystone Heights.
The real showpiece of the
day was the new church and
community softball field.
Putnam Hall resident and
Clay Electric employee John
L. Smith donated an open
field across the way from
the church, with instructions
that if the young people and
the community cleaned it up
they could have it. After a
month or so of cutting grass
and removing the prickly pear
cactuses, there's now a new
softball field with real clay and


plenty) of room o r n a n tl'.l,
trimmed outfield.
A sign on the chainlink fence
around the field reads "John
L. Smith Field, No Drugs, No
Alcohol."
Details were still being
worked out. There was some
question about whether the ball
going into the woods was or
was not automatically a home
run.
The morning seemed to
belong to. the adult softball
players, with fewer kids in
sight.
Putnam Hall residents
like Clarence Lang, who has

VA hospital
in Gainesville
for almost

he believed
the community was growing
stronger all the time and he


looked forward to future
events-and more softball
games.

Putnam Dems talk shop

and socialize at gathering


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
As thousands of people from
around the world paid tribute
to Senator Edward Kennedy
last Friday, the Putnam County
Democratic Party gathered
at a Melrose vineyard to
get acquainted and see what
everyone had in common.
Putnam's Democratic Party
Chairman Rosemary Anderson
said "I think (Kennedy) should
be an inspiration to everyone,
given the many issues he
fought for that affect just about
everybody-minimum wage,
prescription medicine, civil
rights, immigration and now
healthcare reform."
Anderson pointed out a
number of issues Democrats
would . be addressing in the


coming election year. On the
national front those would be
health care and the economy.
On the state level, there will
be a fight for Mel "Martinez's
senate seat, the governorship
and cabinet positions.,
In Putnam County, there will
be two county commission seats
and Palatka's mayoral slot.
Among the mayoral
candidates for will be Vernon
Myers, husband of Linda
Myers who ran against Charles
Van Zant Sr. for the district's
House of Representatives seat
last year.
A number of Lake Region
residents attended last Friday
evening's event, which included
a buffet dinner. The confab was
held at Felicity Trueblood's
Meadowmere Vineyards off
S.R. 21 outside of Melrose.

UCHS Class of '59 holds reunion

The Union County High School class of 1959 recently celebrated its 50th class reunion at the Worthington
Springs Community Center. Seventeen members, spouses, friends and two teachers had a great time. A
surprise visit by a.black leather clad Elvis, a.k.a. Fredrick Perry of Lake City, had the feet tapping as he sang
songs from the group's teenage years. The 1959 class cheerleaders led the group in a cheer, a skit was
performed and several games and drawings for prizes were enjoyed by all. A wonderful meal was catered
by classmate Kathryne Griffis and her staff. In attendance were Cecil Addison, Ronnie Davis, Jimmy Fillyaw,
Charles Green, Royce McLeod, Edward Shadd, Frances Blelling Willis, Frances Gay Boyd, Hilda Dukes
Robinson, Ethella Crews Perry, Joann Parrish Bennett, Sarah Gaines Thomas, Barbara Fortner Murphy, Mary
Etta Minshew Hawthorne, Malinda Mann Holt, Marguerite Driggers Larkin, Gloria Touchstone Clyatt and
Kathryne Arnold Griffis. Teachers who attended the reunion were Doris Richard and Lenvil Dicks. (Submitted

than $703,000 in claims during
the past year.
"This is why we are where we
are at," Acosta said. He further
stated that if BlueCross were
not the current health insurance
company for the county and
were asked to give a quote
for coverage, BlueCross would
have denied the policy because
of the high risk factor.
".What many insurance
companies are recommending
to group policyholders is
that they go with a plan that
increases the co-payment," said
Acosta. He said they've found
that when a person realizes
how much money its going to
cost them out of pocket every
time they go to the emergency
:room, there are a lot less non-
:emergency type visits for
something that could actually
:wait until a Monday during
regular doctor office- hdurs.
.This cuts way down on medical
:costs, he said.
. In the end, commissioners
voted .4-1 (with commissioner
"Jimmy Tallman giving the
dissenting vote) to keep the
:same coverage the policy
currently provides and for the
county to pick up all additionally

absolutely critical," he said.
He added that a little bit of
effort on the part of the city

and will serve to keep them out

department's perspective, we

Citizen Robert Gaubatz spoke
next to say that as a Union

30 years, he agrees, this kind
of activity for kids is needed.
Gaubatz said his daughter, Liz
Croft, works at Lake Butler
Hospital and could not attend
the meeting, but asked him to
read a letter to commissioners
for her.
He read, "Being a citizen of
Union County, a nurse and a
parent, I support and promote
the splash playground. Not
only is it a well-needed form
of recreation for all residents
and our youth, but it would also


have a large youth focus with
three SWAT (Students Working
Against Tobacco) clubs from
Union County High School,
Lake Butler Middle School

group.

signatures on it, stating that a
citizen had gone out on their

in support of the project.
Berchtold said that..during
the city's Fourth of July
celebration, as a Rotary Club
member, he was in charge of
the water slide area.
"I can . tell you, that was
the most popular area all day

Berchtold said. "This can only
be a good thing for us."


anti-tobacco initiatives as well
as local community events..
Any young person ages 11-18
can join SWAT.
The goals of the program are
as follows:
* Promote cessation from
tobacco use by establishing a
tobacco prevention and control
program relevant to youth and
adults in Union County,
* Eliminate exposure to
secondhand smoke,
* Prevent the initiation of
tobacco use,
* Build and maintain an
effective tobacco prevention and
control program by developing
community partnerships that
facilitate tobacco prevention
and control-in the county.
The tobacco prevention

Starke's 631st prepares for deployment in Wisconsin


More than 180 members of the Florida Army National Guard's 631st Maintenance
Company of Starke are currently undergoing pre-deployment training at Fort
McCoy, Wisc. The unit will soon leave for Iraq.




Tigers head into season


with 36-0 preseason win


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Offensive, defensive and
special: teams players all got
into the act as the Union
County football team
outgained host Hamilton
County by more than 300
yards in a 36-0 preseason
kickoff classic win Aug. 28 in
Jasper.
The Tigers got 116 all-
purpose yard's (8-71 rushing
and 3-45 receiving) from
running back Justin Tyson.
The first half featured two
touchdown passes by
quarterback Chris Alexander
that helped-along with a 41-
yard punt return for a
touchdown by Adam Cason-
stake the Tigers to a 20-0
halftime lead. The last score of
the half came on a 10-play, 88-
yard drive that was capped by
Alexander hooking up with
Quentin Johnson on a 13-yard
slant pass in the end zone as


time expired.
Still, head coach Andrew
Zow thought his offensive unit
was plagued by mistakes at
times. Those mistakes never
hurt the Tigers as the defensive
unit turned in an outstanding
performance, holding
Hamilton to 38 yards in the
first half and 66 yards overall.
The Trojans gained just 14
yards on 23 carries.
"Our defense played
relentless," Zow said. "We
stayed after it. Even though we
gave up some plays, we stayed
after it. Our linebackers are
playing great. Dalton
(Cochran) and Mason (Dukes)
sort of stepped up tonight, and
Raymond Randolph stepped
up, too."
Cochran set the tone early
for the game, which had the
teams' varsity starters playing
the first three quarters. His
bone-jarring tackle on the first
play from scrimmage resulted


in a 1-yard gain for the
See TIGERS, p. 12B


On a mild late-summer
afternoon, a military convoy
pulled up to the fuel point.
Soldiers in body armor
dismounted from the dusty
Humvees, rifles ready and
their eyes keenly scanning the
perimeter.
They didn't let their guard
down or remove their
equipment; theii- senses were
heightened and their weapons
were ready, just in case. This
wasn't Iraq, but for the
members of the 631 '
Maintenance Company it
seemed like it because in
another month they will be
deployed to southwest Asia.
More than 180 members of
the Florida Army National
Guard unit from Starke were
conducting pre-deployment
training at Fort McCoy, Wis.,
in late August. The unit
specializes in maintenanceof
wheeled vehicles, weapons and
communications equipment,
but the upcoming mission will
include security of convoy
operations in northern Iraq.
The 631"" is scheduled to leave
Fort McCoy in mid-
September.
For 22-year-old Pvt.
Fawziyya Harris-one of the
unit's newest members-the
deployment will be a chance to
grow as both a person and a
soldier. During a break from
training, Harris stood in a sun-
bathed motor pool wearing
body armor and Kevlar helmet,
her M-16 rifle pointed at the
ground. Harris and nearly 30


members of her unit were
practicing convoy procedures;
they were learning to be alert
and ready-even during
breaks.
"I'm pretty excited, but
nervous," said Harris, a
resident of Port St. Lucie. "I'm
expecting a lot of experience, a
lot of changes, a lot of mind-
opening things."
As this is her first
deployment with the National
Guard-she joined last year-
she is anxious, but looking
forward to the opportunity.
"My stomach's in knots,"
Harris said, hiding any
anxieties behind a steady voice
and her jet-black sunglasses.
"It's something I had to prove
to myself. I actually
volunteered to come with this
unit."
Nearby, another soldier
wearing a combat patch was
looking at a map and
discussing convoy routes with
his team. Forty-year-old Staff
Sgt. Wyman Gleaton from
Middleburg was preparing for
his sixth deployment to
southwest Asia.
"I've got a lot of experience
out on the road, being able to
pick out (improvised explosive
devices), and a lot of
experience about what to do
after you get hit by one,"
Gleaton, who has served in
both Afghanistan and Iraq,
confidently said. "And I try to
pass that on to these younger
guys and give them a heads-


up. Things that they think are
normal here are not normal
there."
Gleaton said that during his
last deployment with the South
Carolina National Guard, he
conducted approximately 300
convoy operations and nearly
50 recovery missions. He said
he feels his job as a non-
commissioned officer during
the pre-deployment training is
to pass his experience .on to the
younger soldiers like Harris
and make sure they have an
easier time in a combat zone
than he did.
"I don't want these guys to
have the learning curve that I
had," Gleaton said. "I'd like
them to be ahead of the curve."
Before mounting back up in
the Humvees for their convoy
exercise, the soldiers and their
training were briefly
interrupted by official visitors
from Florida. Brig. Gen.
Michael Fleming, assistant
adjutant. general.for the Florida
Army National Guard, and
Florida National Guard State
Command Sgt. Maj. Robert
Hosford spoke to the troops to
offer words of encouragement
on the deployment. The

A HISTORICAL LOOK AT BRADFORD COUNTY I


What's in a
name? Ask
Broker (or
Ward City)
(Information for this history
came from an article written
by Sue Ellen Smith in the 110th
anniversary issue of the
Telegraph.) People who live in
the small town of Brooker,
which lies about 18 miles
southwest of Starke and serves
mainly as a bedroom
-community for both
Gainesville and Starke, might
.get confused about exactly
where they live if they have to
file any type of legal
!document. According to many
legal records, the town's
-official name is Ward City, but
the town limits sign says
Brooker. The town was
incorporated as Brooker.and if
residents told someone they
lived in Ward City, the person
being spoken to would
probably not have a clue if that
was even in Bradford County.
The confusion began in the
town's earliest history.
Thomas R. Collins purchased a
piece of property about a mile


The Godwin store in Brooker.


southwest of present-day
Brooker ..in 1892. Soon
afterward,, he petitioned the
government to establish a post
office there. In 1.894 he got his
post office, for which he was
postmaster. But if mail is to be
delivered to a place, it must
have a name that can appear on
the address. Collins decided to
name the place Brooker after a
friend, Ed Brooker, who was a
farmer in the area.
But the same year that
Collins was granted a post
office, the railroad which ran
from Sampson City to
LaCrosse, through Brooker,
was completed. Emra P. Ward,
son of an early settler in the
area, had deeded the right of
way through what is now
Brooker to a company building
the railroad. The right of way
was sold to the Ambler
Lumber Company of
Jacksonville for $1 with the
understanding that a railroad
was to be built on the land
within three years. The deal for
the right of way was struck
with the provision that the
station slated for construction
in Brooker would be called
Ward City in honor of'Ward's
cooperation over the right of
way. In 1894, when the
railroad which became


Emra Ward
nicknamed "Peggy" was
completed, the station was
built and emblazoned with the
name Ward- City. Since in
those days most people who
arrived in any town arrived by
train, most people called the
place Ward City. However,
Collins recognized the
advantages of having a railroad
station nearby and bought a lot
in Ward City for $30 and

"Ah....Fresh
Meat!"
It's that time of year again
when we send our children off
to college. I can hear the cry
"Fresh Meat" from the Halls of
Ivy. The college institution
salivates with glee, the same
way Principal Agatha
.Trunchbolt of the Movie
"Matilda" did, at the sight of a


new student. During their
education many will be
indoctrinated over and over
again, tearing down what our
churches and we parents have
tried to instill into our
children. They will not be just
presenting different views. It
will be a methodical
undermining what many of us
believe is the essence of life. I
do appreciate the teachers,
who do not have an agenda to

advance; who try to let the data
speak for itself. It is a tough
job because all of us are prone
to have our own agenda.
Our children will be taught
that evolution is not just a
secular theory of life. They
will be taught it is the great
underlining biological fact.
Evolution, if it occurred,
occurred in the past, and is not
open to validation by the
scientific method; though
statistical analysis may give an
idea of its probability or
improbability. Likewise the
theory of Creationism can not
be proved or disproved.
Natural selection, different
from evolution, can be tested,
the difference between the two
should .be explained. Do not
use natural selection as a proof
for evolution.
I ask any doctor or professor
to give a single example found
in life that cannot be explained
by the creative process of an
all powerful creator. If there is
not an example, then evolution
is a theory; a theory you either
choose to believe or not to
believe.
Can anyone answer thi&
statement posed by Stephen
Meyer PhD.'*
. "Without DNA there is no
self replication; but without
self replication there is no
natural selection. So you can't
use natural selection to explain
the origin of DNA, without
assuming the existence of the
very thing you are trying to
explain"

BROKER
Continued from page 3B

moved his Brooker post office
there. Before the railroad was
built, Collins had to travel a
rough several miles northeast
to Litesville several times a
week to deliver and. pick' up
mail. From the lot in Ward
City, he could walk to the
station to pick up the mail.
When people arrived in
town, they saw the railroad
station labeled Ward City and
the post office labeled
Brooker. If you mailed a letter,
you gave your address as
Brooker. If you were being
visited by family or friends,
you told them to get off the
train at the Ward City stop. It
was all very confusing. The
confusion remained until 1914
when Ward City residents
asked that the post office's
name be changed from
Brooker so that one name
would serve the town. The
postmaster at the time was,
afraid this would cause
problems with mail delivery
because Florida already had a
Wardville and Ward Station.
That concern prompted postal
officials to decline to change
the name of the post office.
Town citizens, who were tired
of explaining the two names to
every out-of-towner they dealt
with, took the Ward City sign
down off the train station and
replaced it with a sign reading
Brooker. The town has been
called exclusively Brooker
ever since.- unless you go to
the courthouse. No official
-steps were ever taken to
change the legal name of the
town, so all the deeds and
court documents still list it as
Ward City.
Brooker has been a farming
community ever since it was
first settled and is still known
for having rich farmland.
Potatoes, melons, corn, beans
and squash were major crops.
Tobacco was also grown.
From the 30s through the 50s it
was not unusual for 12 or more
tractor-trailers to come 'to
Brooker every day to take the
produce to market. Farmers
brought their crops to town to
meet the trucks. Some produce
was also shipped by rail during
that time, but in early days
crops went almost exclusively
via train. In the 20s and 30s,
Peggy made two round trips to
Brooker every day. The wood-
burning engine -.ari red"
passengers and freight - and
, a lot of affection from local
folk for years. In the 20s and
30s Brboker had five stores,
including a hardware store, a
general merchandise store and
three grocery stores. The town
* barber shop was run by L.A.
Brown until he sold it to
Lonnie Parker in the late 30s.
The streets were dirt, as were
most streets in the towns of
Bradford County. A graded
dirt road was built in the 20s
into Starke. There was no
paved road to Gainesville and
the trip was too long to be
made over dirt roads. Most
Brooker residents had little to

Brooker postmaster

do with Gainesville in the 20s
and 30s. A sawmill and a grits
mill were in Brooker in those
days and a cotton gin operated
there until the late 20s.
The Depression dealt with
Brooker as it dealt with most
towns. Times were hard and
families survived in any way
they could. According to
longtime Brooker resident C.E.
"Sue" Davis, who acted as a
correspondent for both the
Telegraph and the Gainesville
Sun, a Civilian Conservation
Corps camp was established in
Brooker during the Depression
and acted as an enlistment
center for Florida. The CCC
and the Works Progress
�Administration (WPA) were
established by the- federal
government as a means .of
keeping people working and
making -an income.: New
recruits for the CCC were
enlisted every three months at
Brooker, Davis said.
Replacements would often
remain at Brooker temporarily
until they Were shipped out to
places where they: strung
phone lines, built forest roads,
cut fire lines, and completed
other tasks which benefited the
general population of'an, area,
she said. The late 30s and early
40s saw the economy improve
as it did all-over the nation.
World War II loomed and
Blanding swung into full
operation training troops, Upv
until tha'i .ime, permanent
Brooker re�.idents had'"-loa
worked in Brooker. But with
good jobs waiting at Blanding,
they began commuting to
work. (Today, most Brooker
residents work outside the city
limits. The establishment of
paved roads into Gainesville
later made that city - and its
booming job market - very
accessible to Brooker
residents.)
The war economy of the 40s
brought improvements to
Brooker, including the
construction of a farmer's
market to handle produce
shipments. That market is now
closed. Also in the 40s, a tung

Seaman


Sheffield
ion completes
basic training
Navy Seaman Chance 'A.
r1, Sheffield, son of Sharon H.
and Thomas H. Sheffield of
Melrose, recently completed
U.S. Navy basic training at
Recruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week
program, Sheffield completed
70 a variety of training which
included classroom study and
. practical instruction on naval
customs, first aid, firefighting,
water safety and survival,..and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also placed
on physical-fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations". This
AM exercise gives recruits the
skills and confidence they need
to succeed in the fleet. "Battle
Stations" is designed to
galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice,
dedication, teamwork and
endurance in each recruit
- through the practical
application of basic Navy
skills and the core values of
honor, courage and
commitment. Its distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed to
take into account what it
meafs to be a sailor.
Sheffield is a 2007 graduate
of Keystone Heights High
School.

oil mill was built in Brooker.-'
Tung nuts, grown on trees,,
were shipped to Brooker to be .
ground for oil extraction.,
Sometimes the nuts wereJ
shipped from as far away as
Alabama. The oil extracted in "
.the grinding was used t6 make
varnish and paint. The nut,:
grounds were packed in cakes
and shipped to feed mills for,.
use there. The highly
flammable grounds were said
to have caused frequent fires
on the rail cars which-'
transported them. Tung oil was
a big industry for the area until:.
paint manufacturers began
using water-based paints in the,.
mid-1950s. Demand for tung. '
oil declined. The trees, which
had been planted to supply
nuts, became unproductive due
to age and it was no longer,.
economically feasible to plant .
additional groves. The final ;
blow for the Brooker industry
came when the plant near town .^
burned to the ground in the late a
50s. The plant was moved to :
Gainesville since the Brooker
groves of tung oil trees were :.
no longer as productive. In .,
1962 a new industry opened in
the Brooker area, just a mile or :i
so northwest of town. Florida i
Hydrocarbon Company, now .
Enron Gas, built a plant which b
served as a transmission and
processing station for natural
gas produced in other places.,
The plant employed fewer than i,
50 people since it was mostly a
fully automated machinery. It
still employs less than 50, even _
though an additional storage .
pipeline was built in 2000. L
There are about three stores
still operating in town and the -
elementary school is still in 7
operation there.
Broker was reincorporated
in 1950 after the charter had
been lapsed for about 40 years.
The town council governs the
hamlet, which has its own
water plant, but does not have
sewer service.

are ready to head overseas.
"Until they actually deploy
in theater, we in the Florida
Army National Guard feel like
we are still responsible for
their training," Fleming said.
"On occasion we've had to
address issues, but by and


large we're just looking at
their training. Also, we're
looking to see what kind of
new and innovative methods
are being used at mobilization
stations.
"We want to come up and
show them that what they're
doing is important. They have
worked hard, they represent
the Florida Army National
Guard and we want to thank
them for that."
Hosford told the gathered
soldiers one of the most
important responsibilities they
will have during the
deployment is "keeping the
lines of communication" open
with their families and
employers back home.
"Soldiers get into the areas
of operation in Iraq and


Afghanistan and their daily
(operational tempo) is so high
that a lot of times they. lose
sight of the fact that their
families are back in the rear
and thinking about them,"
Hosford said.
As the training day came to
a close, the unit's senior
enlisted soldier, Ist Sgt. Ellis
Sirmans, took the. general and
command sergeant major on a
tour of a mock-up forward
operating base at Ft. McCoy.
This is where soldiers are
given a preview of life on a
base in Iraq, which includes
security details, austere
conditions and even the
occasional insurgent attack.
Sirmans said his unit was
eagerly anticipating its
deployment and that the high-


.intensity training was teaching
them to constantly "stay on
their guard."
"The soldiers are expecting
to do .their mission and try to
stay focused," he said: "The
main . concern is to stay
focused and not get
complacent. It's easy to get
complacent."
The 631s Maintenance
Company is scheduled to
return from Iraq next summer.

4 new coaches join Bradford High football program


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
You would expect the
Bradford High School football
coaching staff to go through
some growing pains this
season with the addition of
four new members, and that
may very well happen, but the
coaches have seemed to form a
bond already that has created
an enjoyable experience in
these early stages of the
season.
New coach Jacob Scott said
he is having a "blast," while
Price Harris, another
newcomer, said he was
recently telling his wife he is
having the most fun since he
coached at Leesburg High
School. That was eight years
ago.
"The coaches make it fun
because we get along so well,"
Harris said. "We don't always
agree, but we get along real
well."
Harris and Scott are joined
by Rob Charles and Mike
Ruszkowski as the new
additions to this year's staff.

Price Harris
Harris, who is Bradford's
defensive coordinator, played
at Madison County High
School and graduated in 1993.
One of his fondest memories
'from that time was when the
Cowboys visited Starke and
played the Tornadoes as
Bradford celebrated its 100"'
homecoming. Madison won
18-12.
"That's a memory I'll never
forget," Harris said.'
Harris went to Bethel
College in North Newton,
Kan., and plyved one year of


The Bradford High School football program has four
new coaches in (1-r) Rob Charles, Mike Ruszkowski,
Jacob Scott and Price Harris. All four expressed how


football. He remained at the
school, though, to work toward
his degree.
Coaching was actually
something Harris had not
planned on doing..His degree
is in Bible theology. He had
plans of entering the ministry,
but the lure of being around
the sport of football was hard
to resist. In fact, he felt God
led him into coaching to help
mold boys into men.
"I realized there's a ministry
wherever you are," Harris said.
"You don't have to be a pastor
to be a minister.
Harris started coaching at
his high school alma mater in
1996 under head coach Randy
McPherson, who was his
offensive line coach when he
was in school. It proved to be a
memorable year as Madison


won its first-ever district

much they have enjoyed working with the players and
interacting with the members of the community. Also,
the coaches all agree they work well together.


championship. It was the start


of a building process that has
developed Madison into a state
power. Harris recalls how the
players then were intimidated
by playing Bolles, which
defeated the Cowboys in the
third round of the playoffs that
year.
"Now, those kids aren't
intimidated by anybody,"
Harris said.
In 1997, Harris finished the
work necessary to earn his
degree. He then joined Bud
O'Hara's staff at Leesburg
High School in 1998. He
coached there four years,
coaching the offensive line the


first two years, serving as
offensive coordinator the third
year and then finally serving as
defensive coordinator.
The experience at Leesburg
gave Harris a bit of a Bradford
High School connection as
O'Hara was good friends with
former Bradford head coach
David Hurse.
"I was able to get to know
coach Hurse during those
times because coach Hurse
used to come down and go .to
practices," Harris said.
Harris became Williston's
head coach in 2002. After two
years there,. he moved to
Georgia, joining Rick
Darlington's staff at Valdosta
High School.
He spent one year there
before moving back to Florida
and taking the reigns as the
head coach at Taylor County
High School. He coached there
four years through last season.
"I was let go," Harris said.
"We changed superintendents
lasty-ear. They wanted to go in
a different direction, which I
can understand."
Harris had known Bradford
head coach Steve Hoard for
quite a while. He called Hoard
one day just to see how things
were going. They talked for a
while and came to the
conclusion that Harris would
be a good fit on the Bradford
staff.
So far, it has been a good fit.

End zone hard to find in BHS classic


One trip across the goal line
was all the varsity .and junior
varsity teams from Bradford
and Williston could muster in
an Aug. 28 preseason classic
hosted by Bradford that saw
the varsity Tornadoes play the
Red Devils to a scoreless tie
and the junior varsity Devils
win 6-0.
The junior varsity teams
squared off against each other
in the first half. Bradford won
the coin toss and chose to
receive ball. The Tornadoes
took the first possession on.
their 20-yard line (b)
preordained rules, there was no
kickoff) and showed their
youth early when the first hike
from the center fell to the
ground on a bad exchange.
Running back Antwuan
Jackson quickly gave the Big
Red faithful something to
stand up and holler about as he
darted around the right end
carrying the ball for the initial
first down of the season.
The offensive highlights
were limited, however, and the
rest of the half became an air
and ground battle that no team
definitively won.
The Williston offense set up
in a shotgun formation with
four wide receivers and tested
the JV secondary on every
play. With approximately four
minutes left in the first quarter,
a gang-tackling Tornado
defense led by freshman BJ.
McNeal forced a fourth-and-
long. The Tornadoes then
denied a long Red Devil pass
attempt.
Bradford's offensive effort
came up short in yards and
points in the half, giving
footing to the theory that early
on in the season the offense'
has to catch up with the
defense. JV head coach Mike
Ruszkowski knows he's got a
good young group of talent
and has to bring the offense up
to speed.
"We've had a lot of shifting
(offensive) guys around the
last three days," Ruszkowski
said.
The JV will have to
overcome a lot of obstacles
this year with injuries to key
role players and the loss of
three would-be starters who
are making their mark on the
varsity team.
Bradford's varsity unit was
on the field most of halftime.
Fans got a good look at the
2009 squad. From the stands,
the first impression is, in a
word, small. Yes, there is only
one starter on the offense over
200 pounds. Yes, there is only
one starter on defense over 200
pounds.
The second impression you
get of this year's team is
focused. From the second
players started position drills
on the field at halftime they
were playing football.
Williston brought the entire
traveling team-approximately
70 players-back onto the
field for warm-ups and the
approximately 30 players


suited up for the Tornadoes
didn't blink. Some of this
focus may be attributed to
attending an off-season
training camp that included
scrimmaging eight teams a day
in full pads.
The third impression of this
year's team is tough. Bradford
kicked off to Williston, with
the players looking for contact
as they' streaked down the
field.
Like its JV team, Williston's
base . 'offensi e .set is the
-*.,_ Ia . the pa.apapy.
Red "Dev il. fanned tO-ptay in
the air most of the night. The
Bradford defense forced them
to punt on their first series and
partially blocked the kick to
set up its first offensive
position on its own 30-yard
line.
Williston crowded the line
of scrimmage to test freshman
Deandre Burch, who was at the
steering wheel of the Tornado
offense. He threw a perfect 10-
yard out on third-and-eight,
and though wide receiver
Tremaine Harris couldn't haul
in the pass, Burch displayed
arm strength and accuracy on
the play.
"(Deandre) is a special
athlete," Bradford head coach


Steve Hoard said.
After a Tornado punt, the
Red Devils went on the
offensive, getting help on the
drive with a late hit by the
defense. The Tornadoes found
themselves backed up on their
own 15-yard line when the
Williston running back chewed
up 11 more yards down to the
4. Defensive back Rodney
Mosley's touchdown-saving
tackle on the play seemed to
ignite the entire defense that
disrespected the Williston
offense on the next two plamy,
forcing a third-and-goal from
the 10. The third-down pass
was intercepted by Mosley in
the end zone.
"I had a feeling he was
going to try me," Mosley said
of the Williston quarterback. "I
just wanted to get the
momentum back for the team."
Early in the fourth quarter,
the Tornadoes put themselves
in a hole with back-to-back
fumbles, capped by and all-out
blitz on an apparent pass play
that caused Burch to lose the
ball.
The Red Devils' ground
game then found big holes to
get down to the Bradford 4-
yard line. Williston had five
chances to score as the

Tornadoes were flagged for a
pass interference penalty on
third down, giving Williston a
new series. Harris, at safety,
denied Williston's last real
scoring threat, getting ' a
tremendous break on a pass at
the 5-yard line for the
Bradford's second interception
of the half. Harris flashed his
dual-threat ability, taking the
ball back to the 45.
"We want our (secondary) to
be the hardest working group
out there," secondary coach
Rob Charles said. "They were
resilient tonight. It's hard to
play in our secondary if you
can't catch."
With. the Tornadoes missing
six starters at key positions on
defense, they held the Red
Devils out of the end zone as

Defensive coordinator Price Harris has six years of head coaching experience,
having most recently guided the Taylor County program for four years.


COACHES
Continued from page 8B

Harris admitted it is tough to
be a defensive coordinator
under a head coach who
worked previously as a
defensive coordinator, but said
the relationship has led to him
doing things in a way he may
not have necessarily done them
in the past and Hdard to do
things he may not have
necessarily done in the past.
"I think we're
complementing each other
very well," Harris said.
Harris, who also assists on
the offensive line, said the
experience thus far has been
fun, not just because of the
coaches he works with, but
because of the dedication of
the players.
"They're coachable," Harris
said of the players. "They're
working hard. What more can
you ask from a kid?"

Jacob Scott
: How many of us can look
back and say we definitively
knew what we wanted to do
with our lives when we were in
the. eighth grade? Scott, who
coaches the offensive linemen
at Bradford, is one, saying that
was when he knew he wanted
(o coach football. An injury
did nothing to deter him.
- "I broke my leg and realized
I needed to be a part of
football for the rest of my
fife," said Scott, who played at
Middleburg High School.
fThat's all I've ever seen
myself doing is coaching."
His coaching career began at
Benedictine College in
SJi.,on. Kan. Scott went
there to. play football. He then
became a student assistant.
? Following that, Scott moved
back to Florida, getting a
poaching job at Bishop Snyder
High School in Jacksonville.
e would return to
benedictine, though, as an
assistant offensive line coach
before coming back to Florida
to take the job at Bradford.
'Scott said he wanted to be
closer to home, so when he
became aware of the open
position at Bradford, he
applied for it. He said Hoard
called him and after they
talked, they agreed he would
1fe a good fit.
SHe must be a good fit
l~ecause he said he gets along
,ith the other coaches and
tey all have fun.
"We all like to get together,"
cott said, "but the main thing
i we like to teach the kids and
e like to see them do what
e tell them to do."
And the players at Bradford
High School are doing what
Scott and the other coaches tell
them.
1"They're very coachable,"
"ott said. "I would say 99.8
percent of the offensive line is
completely coachable. They
ten to everything you have
say."
That interaction with young
People has been rewarding for
ott. He said he enjoys
Ilping mold young men,
whether it's on the field or off
e field. Being in a position to
ve a positive impact on a
Sung person's life makes one
lel good at the end of the day,
said.
"Coaching has surpassed my
tXpectations," Scott said.
*Getting to work with kids
,Eery day, you really do feel
"pke you make a difference."

ob Charles
. Charles spent two years
'orking as a regional manager
r Wachovia, earning a
taster of business
administration degree in the
iocess. but it proved to
difficult to stay away frorm
otball, which is why he
applied for a position at
Jradford High School.
r"It's hard to walk away from
coaching) once you get
.ked in," Charles said.
SCharles, who coaches the
fensive secondary at BHS,
ot sucked in as a volunteer at
is alma mater, Clay High
School in Green Cove Springs.


Being around the players was
something he enjoyed.
"It was captivating being
around them," he said. "I
found my passion in
coaching."
Charles graduated from Clay
High School in 1998, where he
played defensive end. He went
on to play at the junior college
level before transferring to
Fairmont (W.Va.) State
College. He was doing well
there, but wanted to see if he
could make his mark on a
program like FSU. He joined
the Seminoles as a walk-on,
playing first at safety and then
at linebacker. Charles said it
was a great experience as he
played a lot more than he
expected to as a walk-on.
Besides coaching at Clay,
Charles also coached at
Fleming Island and Englewood
high schools before working
for Wachovia.
Now that he's a part of the
action on Friday nights again,
Charles said it brings back
memories of his days playing
at Clay High School. Only this
time, he's the one instructing
players on what to do.
However, he said he-and other
coaches can only do so much.
It is those players who put
forth the effort in practices
who will make themselves
better in the long run.
As far as finding the right
motivational tactics to coax
that effort out of players,
Charles believes he witnessed
one of the best coaches in that
regard in ' FSU defensive
coordinator Mickey Andrews.
"I think he has mastered the
art of knowing how to push
each individual to his
capability and beyond,"
Charles said. '"Nt a lot of
coaches kniow� iWv iddo thai '"
It is a goal to help develop
good football players, but
Charles wants to have a more
far-reaching impact on


children's lives by the way he
conducts himself and how he
has made the most of his
opportunities despite what he
termed a "rough upbringing."
"I hope I'm helping these
kids become positive members
of society," Charles said.

Mike Ruszkowski
You can't teach an old dog
new tricks.
Ruszkowski, who is the head
junior varsity coach, but who
also works with the varsity
staff, attempts to evoke that
old saying, saying he's still
trying to learn a new offensive
system in the wing-T when
he's so used to running plays
out of the wishbone or I-
formation,
"I'm kind of rusty,"
Ruszkowski said. "I still find
myself calling bone or I-right
plays. We have similar plays
out of each offense, but there
are some definite different
techniques."
It may be a learning
experience, but Ruszkowski
will most likely get it down.
He's been coaching football
too long not to. That includes a
stint of 33 years in various
capacities at Palatka High
School.
"I love football,"
Ruszkowski said. "It's one of
my passions."
Ruszkowski's coaching
career began as a graduate
assistant at West Virginia
University, where he said he
was fortunate to have the
opportunity, to work under
Bobby Bowden. Then it was to
Palatka, where he was an
assistant on a team that won a
state championship in 1981.
The Panthers defeated Riviera
Beach Suncoast42-2.
In 1983, Palatka was a state
runner-up, losing 28-21 to a

defeated the Panthers by more
than 20 points earlier in the

"Those two years were

Ruszkowski coached at

He worked as a volunteer last

Ruszkowski wanted to teach

In the 14 months he's lived

found out there are a lot of
good kids there, something
contradictory to rumors he had

"They're very nice young

want to learn the game.
They're working hard to do

To see a freshman or

he can be a contributor to the

As a result, Ruszkowski
hopes the players' experiences
will better prepare them for

not go on to play in the NFL.
Many won't get an opportunity
to play beyond high school.
However, they can benefit
from having played football,
Ruszkowski said.

Indians outscore Ridgeview despite 4 turnovers


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
As is typical following
preseason kickoff classics,
Keystone Heights head coach
Chuck Dickinson saw some
good things and saw some bad
things in his team's 7-6 win
over visiting Ridgeview in a
half of play Aug. 28.
Ridgeview would actually
go on to win the classic
outright after outscoring the
Indians 12-7 in the junior
varsity half, but Dickinson
could look at the varsity
performance and note the lack
of breakdowns and missed
assignments common to
preseason play.
"I was pleased with the
execution," he said.


However, one area the coach
was not happy with was
turnovers. The Indians turned
the ball over four times on
three fumbles and one
interception.
"We can't have turnovers,"
Dickinson said. "That's one
thing we preach. They can kill
us."
Fortunately, the Indians
were still able to outscore
Ridgeview despite the
miscues. One good thing was
that all of the turnovers
occurred on Ridgeview's half
of the field so as not to give
the Panthers any easy scoring
opportunities.
The Panthers scored first,
putting a sustained drive
together that culminated with a
*touchdown with approximately


five minutes left in the first
quarter. Ridgeview missed the
PAT, however.
Keystone running back
Reggie Thomas, a transfer
from Bradford High School,
tied the score when he broke
loose for an 18-yard
touchdown run. The successful
PAT put the Indians on top 7-6
with approximately six
minutes remaining in the half.
Thomas finished the game
with 84 yards on 10 carries,
while the Indians, as a team,
rushed for more than 100 yards
on 19 carries.
Lott completed 6-of-10
passes for 72 yards.
Defensively, the Indians
created some turnovers of their
own, getting an interception
each from Evan Harvey and


Zach Lambert. Harvey's
interception occurred after
Keystone had driven down to
the Ridgeview 20 before
fumbling the ball away. The
Panthers immediately tried to
go downfield, with Harvey
picking the phss off and giving
the Indians the ball inside the
50.
The Keystone offense could
not take advantage of a second
chance, however, as the moved
downfield and fumbled the ball
again.

Injuries hurt junior
varsity Indians
Keystone's junior varsity
team, having lost two centers
to injuries, had trouble with
long snaps, which helped


Ridgeview score the go-ahead
touchdown with five seconds
remaining as the visiting
Panthers outscored the Indians
12-7.
The Indians, who lost their
starting center prior to the
classic and bis backup during
the classic, forced a Ridgeview
turnover on the Keystone 5-
yard line to preserve their 7-6
lead. Keystone picked up a
couple of first downs, but
eventually had to punt. The
snap sailed over the punter's
head, giving Ridgeview the
ball at the Keystone 10 with 48
seconds remaining.
It was the third consecutive
snap that went over the
punter's head.
"It was a learning
experience for the kids that


you don't take anything for
granted," said head coach
Lantz Lowery, who is' now,
looking for someone who car?
fill the role of long snapper.
Overall, though, Lowery
could see some positives in his
team's performance.
Quarterback Chandler Ma-nn
and fullback Robbie Davis
played well on an offense that
starts eight freshmen, while
Davis scored on defense-with
an. interception he returned
approximately 30 yards.
Besides the play of Davis,.
Lowery also singled out inside
linebacker Travis Raysin,
though he added everyone on
that side of the ball had a solid
game.
"We played well
defensively," Lowery said.


BHS


, KHHS to hook up for seventh straight year


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It's the opening of a new
football season'. For Bradford
and Keystone Heights high
schools, it will have a little
extra excitement as the two
square off against each other
Friday, Sept. 4, in Starke at
7:30 p.m.
In recent years, the
Tornadoes and the Indians
haven't met each other until
late October. A few times, a
playoff berth has hung in the
balance.
This year, however, the two
have nothing at stake but pride,
as they are no longer in the
same district. Not that pride is
not enough to play for.
Bradford head coach Steve
Hoard reminded his players at
the team's Aug. 31 practice


that Keystone has won the last
three meetings.
Bradford and Keystone have
played each other the past six
years, with the Indians holding
a 4-2 advantage. This current
string of games began with a
47-10 win by Bradford in
2003, but following games
have been closer affairs.
Keystone won the last three
games by an average score of
20-11, with last year's contest
a 14-13 Indians win.
The Tornadoes fared better
during 1997-2000 when they
won three of four against
Keystone. The two teams did
not play each other in 2001
and 2002.
Keystone enters this contest
having earned a victory in its
half of a preseason classic. The
Indians outscored Ridgeview


7-6, getting its lone score from
former Tornado Reggie
Thomas.
Thomas played a role in last
year's game, but wearing the
Scarlet and Gray colors. He
had an 18-yard reception and a
25-yard run to help 'the
Tornadoes score a touchdown
to pull within one point of the
Indians in' the fourth quarter.
Erik BlUrnal's PAT, however,
was blocked by Keystone's
Zak Davis, .preserving
Keystone's 14-13 win.
That game was a tale of two
halves. Bradford's offense did
nothing in the first half,
gaining just 31 yards.
Keystone, meanwhile, scored
two touchdowns on Marcel
Robinson runs to take a 14-0
lead into the half.
Most of the Indians'


offensive production, -though,
was in the first quarter. They
gained 120 yards and got the
two scores from Robinson, but
Bradford's defense held
Keystone to 110 yards the rest
of the game.
Keystone was also. the
beneficiary of turnovers in the
first quarter. Shane Jennings
recovered a Bradford fumble
on the first play from
scrimmage, giving the Indians
the ball at the Bradford 23.
That eventually led to
Robinson's 1-yard score.
Bradford's defense held
Keystone on the Indians' next
drive, holding Robinson to a 1-
yard gain on fourth-and-2 at
the Bradford 28. The next
play, however, the Tornadoes
turned the ball over as Chase
Chambers intercepted a pass.


That ledA to a 5-yard
touchdown run by Robinson.
After struggling in the first
half, the Tornadoes showed
life on offense in the second
half. A 1-yard touchdown run
by quarterback Trey Winkler
pulled the Tornadoes to within
a touchdown in the third
quarter.
Bradford's next score,
following the two big plays by
Thomas in the fourth quarter,
was a 30-yard pass from
Winkler to tight end Scott
Crews.
The Tornadoes had a couple
of opportunities to drive for
another score, but were forced
to punt once after Kyle Cravey
sacked Winkler for a 16-yard
loss and lost the ball another
time on a fumble, which was
recovered by Keystone's


Dillon Van Wagner.
Both teams would like to get
off to positive starts this
season as they try to rebound
from 3-7 seasons. The teams
had similar numbers as the
Tornadoes scored 14 points per
game and allowed 21 per
game, while Keystone scored
11 per game and allowed 24 a
game. Each of the teams' three
wins were within their district.



That's what learning is.
You suddenly understand'
something you understood
all your life, but in a new
way.
Doris Lessing
1919-, British Novelist

Chris Alexander gets hit as he throws a pass in the
second quarter of the kickoff classic.


TIGERS
Continued from page lB

Trojans, who went three-and-
out.
Eight tinies the Tigers
dropped Hamilton backs for 1-
yard gains or no gains, or
made tackles behind the line of
scrimmage. Two such plays
occurred on the Trojans' last
series of the half when Dukes
and Delmonte Givens made
tackles for no gain on
consecutive plays.
Union's offense, despite
making some mistakes that
concerned Zow, really had no
such struggles . with the
exception of the opening drive
of the second half. Josh Tyson
was dropped for no gain on the
Tigers' first play of the first
half, but Justin Tyson
responded with a 9;yard carry
on the next play.
The Tigers would go on to
. put together a 13-play drive
that covered 50 yards before
they turned the ball over on
downs.
It was Cason who put the
first points on the board when
Hamilton was forced to punt
following its second
possession. Cason fielded a


short punt at the Hamilton 41
and took it all the way to the
end zone in the opening
minute of the second quarter.
Alexander's pass on the two-
point conversion fell
incomplete, but the Tigers led
6-0.
The next time the Union
offense got the ball, the result
was a 62-yard drive that
featured four carries for 35
yards by Justin Tyson. A 15-
yard gain by Tyson gave the
Tigers a first down at the
Hamilton 46. Alexander was
sacked on the next play, but
rebounded to throw a 9-yard
pass to Bryan Holmes. A 21-
yard scramble by Alexander
netted a first down and moved
the ball to the 24. Tyson then
carried the ball three straight
times for 20 yards, the third
carry resulting in first-and-goal
at the 4.
Hamilton defenders made
tackles for losses on the next
two plays, pushing Union back
to the 11, but on third down,
Holmes outjumped a defender
in the end zone to catch
Alexander's fade pass. and put
the Tigers upt12-0 with 4:35 to
play in the half. Randy
Randolph's run on the two-
point conversion made the
score 14-0.


A fumble recovery by Union
set the Tigers up for one more
scoring opportunity before the
half. They delivered with the
drive that was capped by
Johnson's 13-yard touchdown
reception. Alexander
completed four passes for 65
yards on the drive, with
Johnson catching three for 57
yards.
For the game, Alexander
completed 11-of-16 passes for
140 yards.
Zow said it was a "great"
performance from his
experienced senior
quarterback, Alexander, who
finished the game I 1 l-of-16 for
140 yards and no interceptions,
but the play of Johnson, a
junior, is a good sign of things
to come.
"Quentin's getting a whole
lot better," Zow said. "As he
continues to grow, he'll
continue to get better."
The Tigers did not start the
second half the way they
ended the first. Three
penalties, including two 15-
yarders, .disrupted the offense
and eventually led to a punt-
the Tigers' only one of the
entire game. However, Union
did not have to wait long to get
the ball back as Hamilton went
three-and-out.
It appeared as if the Tigers
were still feeling the effects
from their previous drive as a
holding penalty had them
facing second-and-25.
Alexander's incompletion led
to third-and-25, but he
completed a long pass to Justin
Tyson. Tyson fumbled after
making the reception, but fell
on the loose ball, giving the
Tigers a first down at the
Hamilton 48.
Most of the rest of the drive
featured running back DJ.
Paige. He had runs of 14 and
11 yards sandwiched around a
roughing-the-passer penalty on
Hamilton that moved the
Tigers to the 15. Paige, who
finished the game with
approximately 40 yards on five
carries, carried the ball into the
end zone from 4 yards out with
2:47 remaining in the third
quarter. Alexander's run on the
two-point conversion made it a
28-0 game.
Once the fourth quarter
rolled around, ,most of the
starters sat on the bench, done
for the night. The Tigers
tacked on another score,
though, as running back
Dontrell Larry broke free for a


~-a
~a'~ ~'- _


27-yard jaunt into the end zone
at the 7:23 mark of the fourth
quarter. Larry had three carries
on the drive for 47 yards and
finished the game with more
than 50 yards.
The successful two-point
conversion capped the scoring
at 36-0.
It may have been an "ugly"
game, as Zow termed it, but in
the end, the Tigers did what
they were supposed to do.
"I think our guys did enough
to win the game," Zow said.
"That's what we want to do, at
least win the game."



BHS
Continued from page 8B
the game ended in a scoreless
tie.
Hoard addressed the team
after the game and praised the
players' attitude and. effort. He
challenged the backups, telling
them to prepare harder because
they are only one play away
from being starters.
He also spoke .to the
Telegraph about his thoughts
on the game and his freshmen
players.
"Conditioning helped us
tonight with the guys who had
to play both ways," Hoard
said. "I think we were better
conditioned than (Williston).
Mosley didn't come out at all
in the third quarter. The kid's
bowed their necks on defense.
(Phillip James), a- true
freshman, got a big sack for us
tonight."
Speaking of Burch, Hoard
said, "Teams are going to try
to exploit that he's young. We
know that. He has a laid-back
demeanor, but he's a winner.
He wants to win. He has
already made a big impact on
this team, but he has a long
way to go."


Of course the illusion of
art is to make one believe
that great literature is very
close to Hfe, but exactly
the opposite is true. Life-is
amorphous, literature is
formal.

Union opens season against


Class 6A Ocala Forest


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
This year's Union County
team opens the season in the
same way last year's team did,
by facing an opponent in a
larger classification. However,
this year's team would like to
avoid duplicating the outcome
when it hosts Class 6A Ocala
Forest Friday, Sept. 4, at 7:30
p.m.
The Tigers played Class 4A
Baker County to start last
season's schedule, but an
error-filled game, which
included two interceptions
returned for touchdowns,
helped lead to a 44-0 loss.
"We don't want to make
those mistakes we made last
year," Zow said. "I think our
guys understand that. We're
going to look to play hard
(Friday). I know it's going to
be a tough battle."
Forest is coming off of an 8-
12 season and returns 16
starters. Five of those starters
compose the entire offensive


line, while the offense also
returns quarterback Zach
Welch, running back Donald
Webb and wide receiver James
Brooks.
The unit played well in a
half of action in a preseason
classic last Friday, defeating
Ocala Vanguard 13-0. Welch
and Brooks hooked up for a
53-yard touchdown play, while
Webb scored on a 29-yard run.
Behind that experienced
offensive line, Webb rushed
for 94 yards on 12 carries,
while the team finished with
138 yards on 23 carries.
Defensively, the Wildcats
held Vanguard to 11 yards.
Forest won its eight games
last year by an average margin
of 28 points. Overall, the
Wildcats scored 37 points per
game, while opponents
averaged 17 per game.
Zow said this will be a tough
test for his team, considering
. that as a larger school, Forest
has more resources at its
disposal and a greater pool of
student-athletes to choose


from.
"They'll have more athletes.
They'll have everything they
need on their sideline," Zow
said. "Our guys will just have
to go out there and play
football. That's all we can do.
We'll do that."
The last time the Tigers
played Forest, Zow was a
senior at Union County High
School. That game opened the
season as well and was the first
win of an undefeated season in
which the Tigers won their
third straight state
championship. Union won 35-
7, getting three touchdown
runs from Patrick Hampton as
well as a touchdown run each
- from -Bennie* Alexander and
Teddy Cummings.
Offensively, Union
outgained Forest 437-207.
Defensively, the Tigers forced
three turnovers.
Zow, a quarterback and
safety, did not play in that
game because of a knee injury
that kept him out most of the
season.

WHAT IS


HIN1 FLU?


HINi is a respiratory disease that usually infects pigs but
can (though rarely) spread to the human population.
HIN1 symptoms are similar to seasonal human influenza.


HIN1 symptoms
Include:


Fever
Lethargy
Sore throat
Vomiting ....
Lack of appetite


* Coughing
* Runny Nose
* Nausea
* Diarrhea -
* Body Aches


How is HIN1 flu
transmitted?
The H1 N1 virus cannot be transmitted by
eating pork. It can be transmitted from
pigs in livestock areas to people and from
people to pigs. In some cases, H1 N1 can
be transmitted from human to human.


How can HIN1 flu be prevented?

* Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing
or sneezing.
If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve, not your hands.
It may prevent those around you from getting sick.

* Clean your hands.
Wash your hands often. Wash for 20 seconds using warm water and soap.
This will help protect you and others against germs.

* Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
This will reduce the risk of germs entering your body if you come in contact
with something that is contaminated.

* Practice good health habits.
Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage stress, drink plenty of
fluids and eat nutritious foods. Avoid smoking, which may increase the risk
of serious illness if you do contract the flu.

* Avoid close contact.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, keep your
distance from others to protect them from getting sick, too.

* Stay home when you are sick or have Hi N1 flu symptoms.
Get plenty of rest and check with your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

* Follow public health instructions.
Seriously consider advice regarding school or other closings, avoiding crowds
or other social distancing measures.
