Legislators discuss budget issues in UC


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
As might have been expected,
budget cuts were the main
topic at the Nov. 16 delegation
hearing in Union County with
Senator Steve Oelrich and Rep.
Janet Adkins.
Oelrich and Adkins heard
from a number of county
officials and a few citizens
regarding state budget cuts,
but they also received input
on legislative action that could
adversely affect the county.
All county officials agreed


sales taxes, corporate taxes,
other taxes and fees, and federal
appropriations.
"While we have. really
walked a tight rope throughout
the state of Florida, it has been
tough, but we are solvent. We
are trying to get down to the
core of what government is
all about. We have also made
a pledge that we are not going
to fund things that don't help
Floridians or don't create a
job," Oelrich said.
Oelrich added that he is
convinced that, maybe not
next year, but fairly soon, they
would be able to pull out of


Florida Rep. Janet Adkins and Florida Sen. Steve
Oehlrich listen to concerns of Union County officials
and citizens.


they are now working on the
absolute bare minimum, with
many employees performing
more than one duty to help
make ends meet.
Oelrich began by stating that
the Florida Constitution requires
state lawmakers to prepare a
balanced budget, which is built
around revenue generated by


the current economic situation
and fund some of those things
traditionally funded in the past,
especially for smaller county
projects.
Adkins said that what they do
not want to see is what has been
termed as "stimulus flameout,"
where once Florida's stimulus
dollars are spent, the same


budget problems could be back
again.
First to address the legislators
was New River Public Library
Cooperative's director, Ginny
Bird. Bird stressed that the co-
op's three libraries in Union,
Bradford and Baker counties
were in need of continued
support from state aid to
libraries.
Bird told of the success of
Union's preschool storytime,
which goes along with
maintaining reading proficiency
so the youngsters are more
capable as readers when they
start school. She also talked
of the tri-county bookmobile
that not only provides books
for those who cannot get to the
library, but also makes stops
at nursing homes in Baker
County.
Bird shared that the co-op
was able to find a way for a
woman who is paralyzed to
turn pages of books by using a
mouse. "This is something that
would not be possible without
state aid to libraries,"' Bird
said.
She tallied 51,000 accesses to
computers in the three libraries


during the past year. "People are
rinotjust e-mailing and sending
pictures of grandchildren
across the country, but they're
also looking for jobs online,
applying for unemployment
benefits and looking to fill out
forms for DCF (Department of
Children and Families). The
people helping them fill out
those forms are library staff
because our local DCF offices
closed down," Bird said.
Oelrich asked about the
new library in Union County.
Bird told him that because of a
grant, Union was able to open
a 9,000-square-foot library in
July this year. Also, Bradford
County built a new library two
years ago and Baker County
was awarded state money to
make additions to its library.
Adkins apologized for missing
the library's grand opening
ceremony in Union County and
said she would stop by later to
see the new building. True to
her word, Adkins visited the
library after the hearing.
Next to speak was citizen
Pete Cameron who was there to
talk about an issue that not only
affects Union County, but all of


North Florida. Cameron said
his concern is with a business
group known as the Council of
100, who believe the solution to
South Florida's water shortage
worries is to pipe water from
rural North Florida.
"That's not going anywhere,"
Oelrich said.
Cameron also said there is
talk about electing a water czar
to adjudicate water issues for
the entire state.
""Not going anywhere
either," Oelrich said.
Dr. - Maggie Labarta,
President and CEO of Meridian
Behavioral Healthcare, spoke
about the importance of the
numerous mental health services
provided for residents of not
just Union, but also Alachua,
Bradford, Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette,
Levy, Putnam and Suwannee
counties. To cut back on their
services would leave many
people with nowhere else to
go, she said.
"Last year, you approved an
increase on the cigarette tax,
but what you may not know is
that 44 percent of the cigarettes
are consumed by people with
mental illness. We would love
to see some of that cigarette
tax money used as a dedicated
funding source for treatment,"
Labarta said.
Union County Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead added that Labarta
brought up some very good
points.
-"We certainly do not want
to see that Meridian is cutting
any ,programs or having to
trim back. Their service is

Issues related to the budgetary cost of the class size reduction
requirements "that go into effect in 2010-2011 were one of
many issues raised. The statewide bottom line for reducing
class sizes beyond where they are now could be $1 billion.

"It looked good on the ballot and
sounded like a good deal, but there were
unintentional consequences with the class
size reduction," Oelrich said.

Starke salutes veterans in park ceremony


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Clouds parted and the sun
shined on the annual Veterans
Day ceremony held in Starke
at Charles J. Schaefer Veterans
Memorial Park on Nov. 11.
"The Big Ranger always
watches out for us," said Retired
Col. William E. Dampier, guest
speaker for the ceremony.
Not that a little rain would
have stopped him.
"I learned early in my Army
career that it doesn't rain in the
Army, it rains on the Army,and if
it ain't raining, we ain't training,"
he said.
American Legion Post
56 Commander Bob Lawry
introduced the guest speaker,
who, like the many others were
were honored on Veterans Day,
was willing to do more for his
country than brave the rain.
Dampier served in uniform
from 1958-1997. He enrolled in
.the Florida Army National Guard
as a private while still a senior
at Bradford High School. He
earned multiple decorations and
commendations for meritorious
service throughout his career.
Dampier received bachelor's
and master's degrees from
the University of Florida in
agriculture and education
and completed post-master's
work in secondary education
and community college
:administration. He's been a
: granger, business owner, teacher,
and head of -the- voctitonal
.college and county emergency
. .management office.
"I guess I've always stuck
pmy nose into a little bit of
Everything that's going on in our
community," Dampier said.
' His service took him many
places, from Fort ,Bragg to the
Pentagon, and included more
than 500 parachute jumps.
Dampier read a list of
adjectives'that have been used
to describe the United States,
From admired to warmongering,
Sbut said whenever there is a
catastrophe in the world, the U.S.
and its citizens are the first to
;respond with a solution. - - - -
Among those citizens art.a
;few who answer the call to armi
when the nation needed them.
SThese men and women who have
served are respectfully called
Veterans, he said.
S"Our community is blessed
ito have so many veterans living
here, raising families; working,
serving as volunteers, or simply
just being good neighbors,"
Spampier said.
' Many of the people he knows
are older veterans who rarely
; 'ever talk about their service,
jhe said. It's a hallmark of "The
bGreatest Generation" as written
about by Tom Brokaw that these
N- .WWII vets didn't think they had
Sdone anything special, he said.
"I'm proud to say that, as a
young soldier, I was trained by
graduates of World War II and
Korea who taught me that you can
succeed in the face of tremendous
bdds to yourself or to your unit.
You had to focus on what you
knew, what you had learned and
What your responsibility was, and
Work together as a team to meet
your opposition," he said.
Dampier said any obstacle
he's faced has been. overcome
by remembering what he wag
..taught by those veterans, and he

and the citizens of Bradford
County.
The ceremony also included a
moment of silence for those who
were wounded or killed in the
shooting massacre at Fort Hood
in Texas earlier this month. Past
American Legion Commander
Bill Cloud also took a moment
to recognize Blue Star families,
families who have a member
currently serving in the military.
Of course, the veterans present
were invited to stand as well.
In recognizing local officials,
Cloud noted that one Starke
commissionercould notattendthe
ceremony. Commissioner., Danny
Nugent is currently deployed
with the Florida National Guard

Iraq along with other community
members.
"Our thoughts are with them
and their families," Cloud said.

encouraged everyone to think
how there lives had been affected
by veterans.
He also asked that the veterans
who have given and lost their
lives and theit , families be
remembered. Many of the things
we enjoy, large and small, were
secured by and protected by
veterans, he said.
"Please let it be your personal
choosing that when you meet and
speak to a veteran you take time
to thank them for their service,"
he said. "I firmly believe this
is the path we should travel to
ensure this continues to be a
great nation-the land of the free
and the home of the brave."
Members of JROTC from

in the ceremony. JROTC member

Crist lauds combat team during Camp Blanding visit


Gov.CharlieCrist expressed his
gratitude to the 2,450 members
of the Florida National Guard's
:53rd Infantry Brigade Combat
Team during a visit to Camp
'Blanding Joint Training Center
:near Jacksonville Monday.
In preparation for a yearlong
-deployment in Iraq and Kuwait,
troops are completing six weeks
of pre-mobilization training,
referred to as "Operation FALL
CLASSIC" at the training center.
The governor also emphasized
his support for the Caregiver
:and Veterans Health Services
:Act of 2009, federal legislation
'that aims to assist, improve and
support health care for veterans.
"These brave service men and
women are a great testament to
the outstanding caliber of the
Florida National Guard and our
;nation's military," said Crist.
"I am proud of what they are
accomplishing as they complete
'their training and am confident
they will continue to serve with
Honor and distinction."
Operation FALL CLASSIC
began on Oct. 6 and is the final
phase of training in anticipation
of actual combat conditions
Overseas. Among other
procedures, soldiers practiced
convoy security, detection of
explosive devices, crowd control
in a combat zone, and medical
extraction simulations.
" Additionally, an Arabic-

Christmas
parade coming
The city of Starke is trying
.something hew this year with
its Christmas parade, holding
it on a Friday night instead of a
Saturday morning.
The city wants to encourage
increased ,participation and
turnout as well as take advantage
of the evening hours to create a
beautifully lit parade.
The city commission is also
:combining the parade with its
annual Christmas tree lighting
ceremony at Wainwright Park.
Following the parade, Santa
Claus will make an appearance
at the park, and there will be
singing and refreshments.
Parade entryforms are available
at the North Florida Regional
Chamber of Commerce, 100 E.
Call St. The application deadline
is Tuesday, Dec. 1. Participants
must contact the chamber on
Tuesday, Dec. 3, to receive their
parade lineup number.
This year's theme is "A
Christmas Carol."
The parade will take place on
Friday, Dec. 4, at 6 p.m., although
line up will begin in front of
Shands Starke at 4 p.m. Floats
will be judged at 5 p.m. and the
winners will be asked to return
Wainwright Park with Santa
following the parade.
With new parade plans comes
a new parade route. The parade
will travel from the hospital on
East Call Street to Water Street,
where it will make a right. It will
circle Wainwright Park; making
a left at Bridges Street and
another left onto Church Street.
It will travel back down to Call
and make a right, completing
its trip through downtown. At
Walnut Street, the parade will
. take a right and break up at the
First Baptist Church parking lot.
Because the parade is taking
place after dark, participants
must place increased emphasis
on safety. As always, rio candy
may be thrown from any float
or vehicle. This rule cannot be
broken, and violators will be
asked to leave the parade.
If participants want todistribute
candy, it must be done by adult
walkers. This year, walkers
must wear reflective clothing or
devices for safety. There is a limit
of two adult walkers per entry
to reduce the overall number
of walking participants. They
must also maintain parade pace
because of the train schedule.
Children should be riders in
the parade and not walkers.
The parade committee also
requests that no live Santas
appear on any entry because the
, santa will be riding at the
end of the parade. Inappropriate
entries may be rejected.
Those who attend the parade
as spectators and bring children
should take extra care to keep
them out of the street.

the chamber at 904-964-5278.


life interactions with Iraq and
Kuwait residents. The team of
role-players, comprised mostly
of Iraqi nationals and expatriates,
wear distinctive Iraqi garb and
speak Arabic in an effort to be
as authentic as possible and
accurately portray the typical
interaction between Iraqi and
Kuwaiti nationals and U.S.
troops.
Crist visited the "theater
specific" training in a simulated
Iraqi village with the Iraqi
nationals speaking Arabic. A
practice attack was under way
to train soldiers concerning
the correct procedures to enter
an Iraqi village looking for a
suspect. The Iraqi role-players
carried out their daily routine
as soldiers moved into the area.
Suddenly the role-players were
calling out Arabic slogans
attempted to work with the
soldiers moving in force when
the area erupted in smoke and
the role-players scattered from
the area. There was an eruption
of gunfire as soldiers engaged
with enemy combatants.
.While the village scene was
unfolding, soldiers securing
the perimeter yelled for an
approaching vehicle to halt.
They fired at the vehicle and it
exploded with a vehicle-borne
explosive device; no soldiers
would have been injured in this
scenario.
To conclude the exercise, a
team of soldiers quickly extracted

Landfill closer to selling carbon credits


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

New River Regional Landfill
has learned has 175,000 carbon
credits certified by the California
Climate Action Registry that
should be very profitable for the
solid waste association and its
member counties.
A cap and trade program
proposed in Washington has
caused some concern over the
value of those credits.
The cap and trade bill passed
by the U.S. House creates a
mandatory market would reduce
the value of those older credits
the landfill has earned,according
to New River Solid Waste
Association Executive Director
Darrell O'Neal and Steve
Laux, the landfill's consulting
engineer.
Laux said the older credits
would not be worth as much, but
newer credits earned from 2009
forward could be sold on the
'premium market" that would be
established by cap and trade.
Since it already has 175,000
credits certified, the landfill is
going to try to sell them on the
current voluntary market as soon
as possible-hiring a broker if
necessary-before those credits
lose value under the proposed
mandatory market.
The landfill has earned carbon
credits by voluntarily collecting
gases-mostly methane and
carbon dioxide produced by
decomposing waste-and
keeping those greenhouses out of
the atmosphere.
SA project to expand collection
of landfill gas is on track to
be completed well before new
permit requirements kick in
this coming March. Prior
to tripping the landfill gas


collection requirements, the
landfill was collecting and
flaring gas voluntarily as part of
the bioreactor project. Once the
amount of gas being produced
at the landfill exceeded the
threshold set by the state, the
landfill's air permit required that
the gas collected be collected
and disposed of.
The landfill is no longer
eligible to claim carbon credits
for the gas it is required to collect
and burn in certain cells, but
it can still sell the credits it has
already accumulated.
. Laux said credits on a proposed
cap and trade market could be
worth about $5-6 a credit. Older
credits on the voluntary market
would fall in value from $5 to
around $2 a credit, hence the
push to sell the older credits as
soon as possible.
The unanticipated revenue
earned from the sale of these
credits will financially benefit
the counties making up the
association, O'Neal said.

Other options
for making
money off
of gas
For years, gas at the landfill
' has been burned off using a flare,
but the gas can be used as fuel.
YJsing that fuel is the landfill's
next revenue generating venture..
O'Neal presented statistics
to the board that showed that
more than 70 percent of landfill
gas projects have been, used to
produce energy-electricity.
Other options, such as selling
it as natural .gas or producing
automotive fuel,are less attractive
because of cost, risk, etc.


Quit smoking, live longer


As the official sponsor of
birthdays, the American Cancer
Society marks the 34th Great
American Smokeout on Nov. 19
by encouraging smokers to use
the date to make a pla4g,q t.ii
or to plan in advance and quit
smoking that day.
'By doing so, smokers will
be taking an important step
towards a healthier life-one that
can lead to reducing cancer rilk
and creating more birthdays.
Researchers say that quitting
smoking can increase life
expectancy-smokers who quit at
age 35 gain an average of eight
years of life expectancy; those
Who quit at age 55 gain about
five years; and even long-term
smokers who quit at 65 gain
three years'. Smokers who want
to quit can call the American
Cancer Society Quit For Life
Program operated and managed
by Free & Clear at 800-227-
2345 for tobacco cessation and
coaching services that can help
increase their chances of quitting
for good.
Research shows that people
who stop smoking before age 50

can cut their risk of dying in the
next 15 years in half compared
with those who continue to smoke.
Smokers who quit also reduce
their risk of lung cancer-10 years
te- ..qui,ttig,. the, ..lung, cancer
death rate is about half that of
a continuing smoker's. Some of
the health effects of quitting are
almost instant, too-heart rate and
\blood pressure drop 20 minutes
after quitting.
"We know that quitting
smoking is tough and that most
smokers have to try several times
before quitting for good," said
Alan G. Thorson MD, FACS,
national volunteer president for
the American Cancer Society.:
"The American Cancer Society
offers a variety of effective
resources' ranging from online
tips and tools to personalized
telephone coaching by trained
specialists. We hope that smokers
will use the Great American
Smokeout to map out a course
of action that will help them to
quit, and in turn to stay well and
celebrate more birthdays."

O'Neal said producing
electricity is the way New River
needs to go, and Laux agreed.
They will be working together
to on a plan to make that happen
so the landfill doesn't continue
burning a source of energy and
profit.

Brown gets
attorney post
at landfill
New River Solid Waste
Association has hired a new
attorney. Starke attorney Terry
Brown will fill the position. He
currently serves at the county
attorney for both Baker and
Bradford counties, two of the
member counties that make up
the association. He also serves
as city attorney for the city of
Starke.
Also up for the job was Union
County's attorney, Russell Wade,
who served as interim attorney
for the association while it
looked for someone to replace
Jon Wershow.
Wershow had been with
the association since Baker,
Bradford and Union joined to
found the landfill. He was let
go because advice he gave to
Bradford commissioners Doyle
Thomas and Eddie Lewis about
purchases of surplus equipment
during a landfill auction that got
them into hot water with the state
ethics commission.
Both Brown and Wade made
presentations last week before
the association voted 4-2 to hire
Brown.
Brown said he has more than
30 years of experience in local
government law and has seen
almost every type of case there


is in that time. He's even taken
two of them to the U.S. Supreme
Court. As Baker County's
attorney, he was also involved in
the formation of the New River
Solid Waste Association.
Brown said his job is to protect
the board-lhe works -for, even if
that includes falling on the sword
if he's given the board poor
advice.

Union borrow
pit abandoned
The landfill abandoned
plans for a borrow pit in Union
County last month after residents
expressed concern about its
proximity to their homes.
The association failed to
get the necessary special use
permit from the Union County
Commission, which turned down
the request.
O'Neal asked Plum Creek to
look for land in Baker County,
which exempts local government
boards from special permitting
requirements for borrow pits.
If the board does not find a
location to purchase and use as
a borrow pit, it will have to look
at purchasing the fill dirt it needs
for daily cover and other uses.
In the meant me, contaminated
soils being brought in from Baker
County and Starke are being
stockpiled to serve the needs
of the landfill in the immediate
future.
In abandoning the proposed
site in Union County, the
association lost close to $20,000
it had already invested in the
project, said O'Neal, but he also
felt the board made the right
decision when it reconsidered
placing the borrow pit at the
proposed location.

The American Cancer Society
created the trademarked concept
for and held its first Great
American Smokeout in 1976 as
a way to inspire .and encourage
smokers to quit for a day. One
million people quit smoking
for a day at-the 1976 event in
California. The Great American
Smokeout encourages smokers
to commit to making a long-term
plan to quit smoking for good.

RMC taking part in state re-entry pr


Program aims at
giving inmates skills,
education so they
become a positive
part of society upon
their release from
.prison.:

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Florida Department of
Corrections records show that
in December of 2008, for the
first time ever, the Florida
inmate population exceeded
100,000. Statistics show that
approximately 32 percent of the
40,000 inmates who are released
each year from Florida's prisons
will return within three years,
at the current cost of $20,000
per inmate per year.
As part of the Department of
Corrections re-entry program
initiative, last month, the
Reception and Medical Center
in Lake Butler held a dedication
ceremony to designate a dorm at
the work camp to house inmates
eligible for the program.
The purpose of the re-entry
program is to better prepare
inmates who are nearing the
end of their sentences for
release into society. Some of
the initiatives in the program
include education opportunities,
treatment programs and job
skills training. Inmates in the
RMC program are able to
take GED courses and receive
vocational training, as well
as attend counseling in anger
management, substance abuse
and transition skills.
"The purpose of the program


is to reduce the recidivism
rate that is over 32 percent
right now," said RMC Senior
Classification Officer Don
Hicks. "By providing inmates
with the skills they need to
reenter society, it will reduce
the cost to the taxpayer as well
as lower the number of new
crimes committed, offering
more public safety," he said.
Hicks said the RMC Work
Camp dorm being used for the
program has the capacity of
72 beds. He handpicked the
first 32 inmates to pilot the
program. The inmates selected
were already showing initiatives
to getting their lives back on
track by taking GED courses
or receiving counseling such as
anger management, substance
abuse or life skills. Another
requirement is that inmates in
the program must be within
five years of completing their
sentences.
DOC studies have shown that
inmates with basic education,
substance abuse treatment and
vocational skills are less likely
to commit another crime and
return to prison.
Other prisons across the
state use some form of a re-
entry program to help reduce
the recidivism rate, however,
there are presently two prisons
that have been fully designated
as re-entry institutions: Baker
Correctional Institution. in
Sanford and Demilly Cl in Polk
County. What's different about
the re-entry dorm at RMC as
opposed to these two prisons
is that RMC does not receive
funding from the state for its
program.
The RMC Work Camp re-
entry program is supported
only through sponsors such as
Lake Butler's Florida Council


RMC inmate Gary Little, a
chosen participant in the
prison's re-entry program,
reads his winning essay
about getting a second
chance in life.

on Crime and Delinquency
Chapter 5 which supplies
inmates with needed items
such as paper, pens, dry erase
boards and other classroom
materials. The program also
receives support through local
community partnerships such
as with the Union County
School District.
The Union County School
District recently partnered
with RMC to begin offering
GED courses and testing to
inmates. According to Outpost
Alternative School Principal
Barry Sams, the program has
been successful, with 16eligible
inmates receiving a high school
diploma earlier this year.
"This is a way the school
district can give back to RMC
Work Camp for all they do-
not just for the schools, but
for the community as well."
Sams said that Lake Butler

institution as well as the community.


Middle School's seventh grade
world geography teacher Chris
Mecusker puts* in the extra
hours at RMC to teach and
administer the GED program
to inmates.
Community partnerships
go a' long way toward
providing inmates with the
vocational skills they need to
find employment once they
are released. For example,
certain inmates have been
able to receive certification
in wastewater treatment or
pesticide treatment.
Union County Extension
Agent Jacque Breman Ph.D.,
said that one inmate who was
trying to get his life on track
had planned to go to work
on the family farm after his
release. In order to work, the
inmate needed to be licensed
in pesticide use, but the state
didn't offer a program for him
to get the training he needed.
"Maybe Tallahassee felt a


little uncomfortable with it. but
I figured this guy had paid
his dues and he had family
farmland where he could work
when he got out," Breman said.
He had to cut through a lot
of red tape, but Breman was
given authorization to train the
inmate to receive his pesticide
license.
Breman said anytime he can
help DOC or inmates get back
on track, he's up for it.
Years ago, when the state
institutions began farming and
planting vegetables, they called
upon Breman's expertise to
assist at several correctional
institutions, including Union
Correctional Institution, where
inmates used 40 acres of
farmland to grow their own
vegetables like greens, potatoes
and squash. "We couldn't use
nonrestrictive pesticides at
the prison, so it was a real
challenge to figure out how to

Union band earns honors, has good year


BY TERESA STONE

Times Staff Writer
':For those who didn't get
out to see a performance of
this year's Union County High
School marching band, you
missed quite a show.
At last month's annual Florida
School Music Association's
assessment, the band received
straight superior ratings in all
five assessment categories of
music, percussion, auxiliary
(Tigerettes), marching and
maneuvering, and the general
overall effect.
':The season's halftime shows
opened with the "Tennessee
Waltz," and never failed to
receive applause midway
through, whether at the home
field or as visitors to another
school.
:,Next came the Tigerettes'
dance portion of the show to
the' song, "These Boots are
made for Walkin'." Tigerette
coordinator, Patsy Fortner
helped the girls pick out outfits
that are perfectly fitting for
the Boots song. The Tigerettes'
uniforms glistened in the

Adding to the fun, one of the

They were soon reprimanded,
but boys will be boys, and they

knew it, they caught a beat that
sounded familiar, then with the
toot of a train whistle and the
shout of "all aboard!" the band
members marched into the
formation of a railroad and the

locomotive and traveled the
track to the tune, "I'Ve Been
Working on the Railroad," The
band members paused every
now and again to wipe the sweat
from their brows from working
so hard, and eventually lined up
in the formation of a railroad
crossing sign.
The unique percussion
feature was arranged by former
band member Cody Tempest,
who went on to play with the
Gator band and is now serving
as the high school's assistant
marching band director.
The show closed out with the
old Southern hymn, "Precious
Lord, Take My. Hand," with
a horn solo by Shelby Finley.
The band marched into the
formation of a cross, and on
the final note of the song, the
Tigerettes raised their flags
high and the band members
went into a final bow.

so valuable to this county. I
encourage our leaders to fund
the necessary programs they
need," said the sheriff.
Oelrich gave Whitehead a
scenario: When a deputy sheriff
answers a call for someone who
appears to be mentally ill and
there is a misdemeanor offense
involved, what happens?
Whitehead replied,"We bring
them to our county jail facility,
make contact with the judge
and start the process of getting
them help. At that time, the
state attorney and I determine
if we should press criminal
charges and get them into a
mental health facility."
Oelrich asked the sheriff
if he is often told there are no
beds available.
"No sir, not so bad,"
Whitehead said. "A person who
is functional, it might take from
two to five days or more, but as
far as an emergency, we've had
good success."
Next to address Oelrich and
Adkins was Union County
Clerk Regina Parrish. "As you
.know, last year was a disastrous
year for clerks. Unfortunately,
one or two issues that happened.
in South Florida impacted all of
us," Parrish said.
Parrish wanted the legislators
to understand that although
there seems to be a one-size-
fits-all mentality, that is not the
case for Union County.
Parrish said that in Union
County, 75 percent of civil
cases are inmates; inmates who
are mostly indigent. "If they do
have any money in their inmate
account, we do everything we
can to go after that," Parrish
said.
"Union County should be
the poster child for cooperation
among the constitutional
officers and their judges and
judiciaries. One of the things
we do is that if the judge has
a mental health hearing at a,
prison, one of my deputy clerks
accompanies him to the prison
rather than bringing those cases
here. That is an example of
why one size does not fit all,"
the clerk said.
Oelrich asked what was
the current inmate population
of Union County. Whitehead
answered with roughly 6,000.
Parrish said that every day,
she gets a letter from an inmate
wanting something and her
office must deal with it.

The clerk . said that was
correct. Mostly, the letters seem
to be frivolous, and sometimes,
just downright ridiculous.
"Some want name changes.
I have one that wants me to
help him secure enough human
blood to drink because he's
going to be getting out and
needs like six quarts of blood to
drink a day,".said Parrish.
On the positive side, Parrish
said that the clerks are very
innovative. She said that a
couple of things she is very
proud of are the Comprehensive
Case Information System and
the E-Portal.
"Talk about wanting to save
money," Parrish said. "All
clerks are in the process of
submitting their acceptance
forms to the Supreme Court
to allow us to receive filings
electronically. That will save
a lot of money throughout the
state of Florida."
As financial officer for the
board of county commissioners,
Parrish asked that the county's
budget not get cut any further.
"Please, if there's any way,
do not cut us any," 'she said.
"No raises have been given in
several years, but now we are
going in (the new fiscal year)
with reserves of only $200,000
and that's scary," said Parrish.
Chief Judge Martha Ann
Lott of the Eighth Judicial
Circuit pointed out that over
the last three years, the courts
had taken $47 million in
cuts. Statewide, she said, the
courts have lost 290 positions,
and locally, seven have been
lost along with $300,000 in
operating expenses.
"Just like other departments,
'we have cut everything we can
cut," Lott said. "We have lost
as much weight as we can lose
and we know you recognize
that we cannot shut down a
branch of government."
Lott stated that the issues of
mental health, public safety,
mortgage foreclosures...all the
things created by the economic
situation... only add to the load
that the court bears in resolving
those disputes.,
On the positive side, Lott
said that the dedicated funding
source through the state court
revenue trust fund was a step
in the right direction, but feels
there is a need for improvement.
Certain fine revenues are

directed into that trust fund
and.when judges are asked to
impose the fines, then it may
look to people like the judges
are getting paid.
She suggested that a better
way would be to swap the
judge-imposed revenues for a
different source of funding for
the trust.
Union County Judge David
Reiman added that he too, was
concerned about how they
were approaching the funding
between the clerks and the
judges.
Reiman said that 20 years
ago, when people would come
before him and he could tell
they were down and out, he
would wave their court costs.
"I thought it was the right
thing to do," he said.
Today, when those same
people come before the county
judge, he said he must now
look at them and impose the
maximum fine because the
court needs the money.
"I think that's the wrong
message and that's what you've
done to us county judges,"
Reiman said. "You've made us
fee collectors and not judges of
the law."
To applause, Union County
District Two School Board
Member Alvin Griffis said that
for the first time in history,
Union is an A district. It was no
easy task to reach this pinnacle,
he said, and asked that the
FCAT standards not be raised.
Griffis said that. teachers
are well-trained to teach the
required FCAT skills, and
students are already overloaded
with homework, before and
after school tutoring as well
as in-school tutoring to meet
the demands. "To raise the
standards would make it that
much tougher on everyone,"
Griffis said.
Griffis said that the district is
fortunate in that this year, it did
not have to cut any positions


or programs at a time when
so many other districts had to
do so.
Next, Griffis expressed his
concerns with the class size
reduction requirements that go
into effect with the 2010-2011
school year.
After delaying it earlier this
year, lawmakers will again fate
the issue of how to implement
the final stages of the class size
reduction law put into place in
2002 that could cost the state
more than $1 billion.
"It looked good on the ballot
and sounded like a good deal,
but there were unintentional
consequences with the class
size reduction," Oelrich said.
Griffis asked, "With the
budget cuts, how will schools
afford to pay for the extra
teachers that will be needed
across the state?" Moreover, he
wondered how schools were to
meet the stringent demands as
new students enter the district.
According to the law, the
number of students in core
curriculum classes must not
exceed state-set maximums as
follows: 18 students in each
pre-K through third grade
classroom, 22 students in
grades 4-8, and 25 students in
grades 9-12.
"What the law states,"
Griffis said, "is that if there is
a maximum of 25 students in a
tenth-grade classroom and we
have 27, we must hire another
teacher for those two students.
This is going to be a difficult
task for any-sehooF-districtT'
Adding more concern to
the' issue is that earlier this
year, there was legislative talk
about a proposal to combine
the class size amendment with
a permanent one-cent sales tax
increase for education funding.
Oelrich and Adkins both
said they fully support putting
an amendment on the ballot
to delay the implementation
of the class size reduction
requirements.

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area


Camp Blanding


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
, The Camp Blanding Joint
Training Center is composed
of 72,000 acres and multiple
training facilities, none of
which is being wasted during
the Florida Army National
Guard's large.sl ever training
event.
The 531 Infantry Brigade
Combat Team is currently
training for a January
deployment to Iraq and
Kuwait, following a brief stint
at Fort Hood. Texas, in
January also. Approximately
2,400 soldiers will go
overseas, 'making this the
largest single-unit deployment
for the Florida Army National
Guard since World War II.
To prepare, members of the
brigade are spending six weeks,
at Camp Blanding as part of an
event the Guard - has dubbed
"Operation Fall Classic." Lt.
Col. Dan Hartman, the
mobilization and readiness


officer for the Florida Army
National Guard, said the event
has utilized all of the Guard's
resources with more than
1,000 individuals needed to
support the event,
Plus, soldiers in other units
have been participating in
annual training, so Blanding
has been quite the busy place.
' "It does use every resource
Camp Blanding has at its
disposal out. here," Hartman
said.
Even with all the space.
Blanding has to offer, the 53rd
Infantry Brigade Combat
Team had to be split in half,
with each half training at
separate times at Blanding,
though there was a little bit of
overlap.
Hartman said a key
component of the 53"Y's
training has been the Army
National Guard's exportable
combat training capability, or
XCTC. XCTC creates a
digitized battlefield, Hartman


as key ro

said. Radio waves and satellite
images are recorded via sensor
packs mounted on each soldier
as well as on vehicles.
Observers in another location
can watch what is happening
during training exercises in
real time.
"They also use the results of
that," Hartman said. "They can
play it back for the unit that
goes through the training when
they conduct after-action
reviews, where they can see
what went wrong and what
they can do better." _____
Col. Richard Gallant, the
commander of the 53' Infantry
Brigade Combat Team, said
what XCTC does is eliminate
any doubt as to where a soldier
was during a training scenario
when sergeants and lieutenants
conduct their after-action
reviews. In other words, a
soldier cannot deny he or she
was in the wrong place at a
given time.
"We're making mistakes,

but we have' to get better,"
Gallant said. "If you have
video footage and 3-D
simulation of where everyone
was at the time, it increases the
learning curve."
Second Lt. Josh Chaves 'of
Lakeland, a member of the 53rd
Brigade, said the XCTC
training has been helpful in
that regard.
"The people who are
evaluating us sit down and
have a pow-wow with us," he
said. "It lets us know what we
need to improve on, what to
maintain and what Jto work
on."
The XCTC training also
incorporates the use of actors
in creating real-life situations.
soldiers may face overseas.,In
fact, some of the actors are
Iraqi expatriates.
Spec. Ronald Jones of
Arcadia, who described the
XCTC training as "awesome,"
said it was certainly better
having non-unit members
serve as actors. Chaves agreed.
"It puts us more in the aspect
of actually being there in the
moment, to add those training
aides, of having the actors out

there," Chaves said. "It puts us
more in the moment as
opposed to it just being us
(involved in the training)."'
What XCTC also does is
allow the members of the 53d
to train closer to home as
opposed to traveling either to
Fort Polk, La., or Fort Irwin,
Calif., to receive the same type
of training.
"It's not always possible to
be able to send your unit (to
,either of those places),"
Hartman said. "There is a lot
of expense and a lot of
resources required to send a
unit out to those training
facilities, plus they're always
full getting other units ready
for their combat rotations."
Gallant said having such
training brought to Florida also
minimizes the impact on
soldiers' .families. They don't
have to spend as much time
away from home prior to
deploying, which will keep
them overseas for a year.
"We made a conscious
decision to try to do .as much

Hoard fired as BHS coach


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford High School head
football coach Steve. Hoard,
after compiling a 13-17 record
in three seasons, was fired last
week, which means the school
will hire its eighth head coach
since David Hurse retired in
'1990.
Hoard, who was hired as
-head coach in 2007 following
former coach Chad Bankston's
abrupt resignation in late June
of that year, guided the
Tornadoes .to their first
winning season since 2004, but-
the team went a combined 9-
11 in the two years that
followed, including a 4-6 mark
this year. - .. ..
Superintendent of Schpols
Beth Moore, in a statement
released to the Bradford
County Telegraph, said, "The
district is appreciative of coach
Hoard for his efforts over the
past three seasons, and we
wish him the best. Making a
change is never an easy
decision, but we feel it is time
to move our football program
in a different direction."
Hoard felt he had assembled
an "outstanding" 'staff this
season to build a solid program
over time at BHS, but said he
knows the bottom line is
winning, which the Tornadoes
did not do much of the past
two seasons.


"It's a win-now society,"
Hoard said. �
�Hoard said the program
faced challenges in each of his
three seasons. His first year
was filled with uncertainty, he
said, as far as the short amount
of time available to implement
offensive . and defensive
schemes, figure out who the.
players were and determine the:
makeup of the coaching staff.
Bankston resigning June 25 in
2007 did not leave Hoard
much time to prepare. Still, the
team went 6-4 after a .500
sedsoc in 2006 and a '3-7-
seasoi, in 2005.
During his second season,
Hoard worked at Southside
Elementary School as assistant
principal. That proved to be a


"disaster" because it prevented
him from being at the high
school and 'interacting with
.players and a relatively all-new
coaching staff until practices
after school.
"It just wasn't a good
situation," Hoard said.
This year, Hoard was back
working at the high school.
However, a rash of injuries
unlike any he's seen during his
coaching career, he said,
plagued the Tornadoes. For
example, the team was missing
three starters-including
center Dylan. Manning, who
missed most of the season with
a torn ACL-in its first district
game of the Season, a 6-0 loss

One year ago, when Sgt. 1s'
Class Timothy Johns and Staff
Sgt. Kevin Wildman of the 2"d
Battalion, 46th Infantry, 194'h
Armored Brigade competed in
the International Sniper
Competition at Fort Benning,
Ga., the pair returned to Fort
Knox with a 12'h-place'finish.
What a difference a year
makes.
This year, Johns, who is the
son of Jeff and Pam Lindsey of
Starke and Doug and Martha
Johns of Lake City, and
Wildman returned from Fort
Benntng with a first-place
triumph in the open class
competition and a number-two
ranking in the overall
competition. A difference of
123 points separated the Fort
Knox team from the number-
one Marine Corps team from
the Scout Sniper. School at
Camp Pendleton, Calif.
"The Marine Corps team
that won it overall were
probably two of the best
Marines I've ever worked with
in my military career," said I"s
Sgt. Steve Johnson, the Fort
Knox team's coach. "They
were very proficient and very
professional in their level of
communication." I
Despite their victory, Johns,
who is also the son-in-law of
Bob and Carol Milner of
Starke, and Wildman still had
to contend with many. of the
same issues that hindered their
performance last year. They
still had to request tactical
weapons from an outside
source and set up as much
training time as possible at the
firing ranges. Then, add to the
fact that Wildman is busy
fulfilling his duties as Fort
Knox Drill Sergeant of the
Year, Johns is a brand-new
father and the fact that Johnson
was pushing a cycle of 240
trainees, finding time to
practice was tough.
However, Fort Campbell
supplied the team with the
weapons it needed, and Fort
Knox Range Control worked
to provide a training schedule
for the men. Range Control
even helped construct unique
targets for the men to practice
on.
The team members were a
little surprised when they
arrived at the competition and
.vere moved from the service
classs 'cate'g6ry o6o bipen " laks
due to the caliber of weapon
they had. That meant they
would compete against Special
Forces, Special Operations and
other big-league teams.
"We were just, 'We'll do
what we can do,' and then
after the first day we won an
event," Johns said. "We won
Movers (moving targets on the





d - No Hassle

range), which is a big points
event. Then it just started
coming to light that we could
possibly win this thing.
"We placed second or third


in every single event, and by
day five or six, we were in first
place in the Open class. .
"It went well. They
definitely made it more


challenging physically," Johns
said. "Last year, they didn't
give points for anything
physical."
The Fort Knox team was
thrilled with the outcome,.
especially .since its shooters:'
went head to head against 30 ?
other teams in this year's 21-
event competition, which
included three foreign teams,
-two teams with SWAT and
one team from the FBI.
"I had an outstanding time,"
Wildman said. "The level of
competition seemed a little
more advanced this year.=
There (vyere) a lot more units-
represented, and there .was a
higher caliber than last year.
"We went down there with a
lot better feeling, especially
with the equipment that we
were carrying. They took our
comments from last year and
they developed what I feel is a
better competition. There are
still some logistical problems
on their end, but overall, the
competition itself was a lot .
more mission-focused as
opposed to a shooting
competition as it was last year.
"I'm definitely not
detracting from what anybody -
else accomplished down :
there," Wildman said. "There,
are some world-class shooters
that were in this competition,,,
and it's just amazing to be in
the presence of them, let alone

Editorial/Opinion

Thursday, Nov. 19, 2009 * Page 4B



The devil is in the details


I don't want to be a party-
pooper, nor do I want to rain
on someone's parade, but there
is blood in the water and the
sharks are circling. The prey
this time isn't young home
buyers, but elderly
homeowners, a vulnerable
group being offered "easy
money" or "money that never
has to be repaid," operating
under the guise of "reverse
mortgages."
This isn't to say all reverse
mortgages are bad; they may
serve some situations very
well, but would-be borrowers
should be informed that
proceeds from reverse
mortgages are not manna from
heaven, but are loans that
someone must repay at some
future date, with the home
being hostage to the mortgage.
Depending on individual
circumstances, repayment may
be of little concern to some
senior citizens. -
The term "senior citizen" is
used because a homeowner
must be 62 or older to
participate in a reverse
mortgage. It's the law.
To be precise, the mortgage
is based on the homeowner's
equity in the home, capped at
$625,500 for the remainder of
2009. Obviously, homeowners
with limited equity will not
benefit from the program
because acquisition costs will
take a large bite from )the
amount received. What tare
those costs?
9.,Two percent of the
appraised value of the
property.
* Origination fee, 2 percent
of first $200,000; 1 percent all
over base amount. $6,000 cap. ,
* Title insurance.
* Attorney and recording
fees.
* Real-estate appraisal.
* Survey (maybe).


Going the
wrong, ;
direction
Dear Editor:
One has to think what
Obama has done to deserve
getting the Nobel Peace Prize
and the million dollars that go
with it. Honestly speaking for
myself, I can't think of a thing
that he's done to deserve it.
Look what he's done about
HIV/AIDS. He ordered the ban
to be overturned of migrant
carriers of the disease. I don't
think this combats AIDS by
allowing immigrants to move
into our country. I think it
helps to increase the danger of
more cases.
Look at his stand on
homosexuals. He opened the
door for them to marry the
same sex. Even saying same
sex marriage does not sound
right.
He goes along with
abortions, killing innocent
babies. No matter what
anybody thinks about it, it is
murder of the worst kind.
I read an article the other
day where a man made a
statement that Obama has done
more in nine months than other
presidents in a lifetime. How
can anyone say that when the


* Service charge by lender,
$25-$35 per month.
* Interest on the loan.
* Owner must continue to
pay taxes and insurance.
Also of note:
* All borrowers must be age
62 or older.
* Must occupy the home as
principal residence.
* No credit, income or
health requirements to qualify.
* Social Security and
medical benefits are not
affected.
* No taxes are paid on cash
from reverse mortgages.
* Owner keeps title and may
sell home at any time.
* No pre-payment penalty
payment with reverse
mortgage.
* Cash may be used for any
purpose, no restrictions.
* No repayment for as long
as you occupy your home.
The equity in a home is its
value on the market, less
outstanding mortgages) and/or
taxes. If and when a reverse
mortgage is approved, the
existing mortgage will be paid
and the amount added to the
new mortgage. The borrower
may elect to receive the
borrowed money in monthly
payments as long as at least
one of the borrowers lives and
continues to occupy the
property as the principal
residence. He or she may elect
to receive the money in equal
monthly payments for a fixed
period of time and may choose
a line of credit .that allows
unscheduled payments or
installments in amounts of
choice until the money is gone.
Other options may be
available.
The mortgage becomes
payable when the borrower
vacates the home by death or
otherwise. If the mortgage
becomes duie through death of


national debt went from $4
billion to $1.4 trillion under his
administration?
-'I-,e6. Afghanistawn issue and every
day, some of our young
soldiers are dying, giving their
all for our freedom. He should
stop having all of those parties
at the White House and flying
to Europe on our tax dollars.
He should use the money and
time trying to get America
back on the right track.
The only proud feeling I
have about any of this is that
my vote did not go to him.


the owner, the house will; be
sold and the heirs will receive
any funds in excess of the
mortgage; If the sale represents
a shortfall, HUD will
indemnify the lender and heirs
will receive nothing.
Homes eligible for the
program are single-residence
homes, apartment buildings
with 1-4 apartments, one of
which is occupied by the
eligible owner, HUD-approved
condominiums and
manufactured homes that meet
FHA requirements, including
some mobile homes.
Since interest accumulates
during the life of the mortgage
and is factored in by the
lender, the older the applicant,
the more cash he may receive.
Again, accumulating interest
can take a big bite from the
amount of money the owner
receives, since it is
compounded at intervals. In a
depressed real estate market,
such as being experienced at
the present time, a borrower
may receive much less cash
than he expects.
An old adage is applicable
here: Every tub sits on its own
bottom. Every homeowner's
situation is unique and requires
individual consideration
depending on many factors. A
reverse mortgage may be the
answer for some people, but
one size doesn't fit all, and
everyone must carefully
ponder all factors before
signing away his or her home.
A borrower may look upon the
proceeds as a loan from his
heirs, for they are the ultimate
lenders and it they that will
repay the loan from their
inheritance.
If there are no heirs, the
decision is much easier. Take
the money and run.

-Thank you,
Janet Adkins
Dear Editor:
I am writing this on behalf
of the residents of Bradford
County. I am glad to have Rep.
Janet H. Adkins looking out
for our interest in Tallahassee,
and for having a wonderful
person, Ms. Marshall, as her
aide to help us out on issues. I
have been to Rep. Adkins'
office a few times, and each
time I was served with
kindness and respect.
I have been having a
problem with a state bill. She
took the time and went over it
with me. She also told me how
I could have this bill relooked
at, and maybe have it revised.
It is very important for us to
have her and her office here in
Starke. If her office was not
here, we would have to drive
to Fernandina Beach to talk
with an aide. To let people
know, Rep. Adkins' office in
Starke is located at the
Bradford County Courthouse.
So I would just like to take
this time to thank Rep. Adkins
and Ms. Marshall for their
service to our community.

Correction on
last letter
Dear Editor:
This letter is in response to
the letter written on
11/10/2009 by me to Sheriff
Gordon Smith in regards to the
stimulus package. I was under
the impression that the car)vas
being purchased with stimfiLlus
money and I was, and still am,
opposed to the idea of stimulus
money being used for anything
and couldn't in good faith be a
recipient of said money if I
feel that way.


After talking with Sheriff
Smith, he assured me that the
money is not from the
stimulus, but from the Byrne
Grant which is distributed to
law enforcement agencies for
the use of fighting drugs and
drug-related activities.
This grant has been
available for about 16 years,
that I'm aware of and Sheriff
Smith is the first sheriff that
has been willing to share with
other agencies in Bradford
County.
The former sheriff collected
over $1.6 million from this
grant and never was willing to
share with us even when we
were making more drug arrests
than the entire sheriff's office
combined. This, I believe, is a
testament to Sheriff Smith's
willingness to correct the
wrongs committed by former
administration's refusals to get
along with other agencies and
work together for the common
good of the people.
My letter last week was not
intended to sully the reputation


of Sheriff Smith in any way. It
was a response only to my
beliefs on the stimulus. Sheriff
Smith and I maintain a
professional relationship and
we will continue to do what's
best for our respective
agencies and we each have the
respect of each other to
continue to work together in
the most beneficial way to
protect our citizens. That is the
most important thing, to
protect those that have
entrusted us to protect them.
Thank you for your
understanding.

Hampton Police Chief

'What do you recommend?

Pellegrino, who graduated
from the University of Tampa

from officer basic course, is
excited about the opportunity
to serve overseas. It will give
her a common bond with her
father, who served overseas in
2003. Pellegrino said her

Chaves is looking forward to
the deployment as well, though
he added he would be lying if
he said he wasn't nervous.
Still, he and his fellow unit
members were well aware of
the sacrifices they would have
to make when they enlisted.
Now, they are a part of Florida

"I'm proud" Chaves said.
"Being in the Army is

"A Doctor's Confession to the Public..."
Dear friend,
Let me tell, you a story...
Twenty years ago I was a young man in my mid 20's and life is good, but I woke up one morning .
and couldn't get out of bed. I had back pain before' but this was different. My low back was "locked up" ,'
and pain is shooting down my spine if I try to move. Even though I'm in a lot of pain I make it to my
family doctor's office and am prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxers and told to "Take it easy for aL
while". That didn't help much. Finally, a friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The
chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then "adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn't hurt, it
actually, felt good. I got relief, and I was happy again. It worked so well that I went to Chiropractic
College myself,
It's strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their back and neck problems. Also
they come to rme with their headaches, migraines, chronic pain, sciatica, shoulder/arm pain, carpal tunnel
syndroihe, whiplash from car accidents, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few.
Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can't really take the credit. My
confession,is that I've never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure,
and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It's as simple as that!
You Benefit from an Amazing Offer - Look, I know you're smart. You want to get to the cause of your problems, not just cover
them up with drugs. When you bring in this article, you, will receive my entire new patient exam for $37. That's an exam, x-rays and a
report of the findings... the whole ball of wax. This can normally cost up to $250 or more, but please call right away because this offer
expires at the end of the month, and I don't want you to miss out. By the way, "further care" is very affordable and you'll be happy to
know that I have affordable family plans. You see, I'm not trying to seduce you to come see me with this low start up fee, then to only
make it up with high fees after that. "Further Care" is very important to consider when making your choice of doctor. High costs can
add up ypry, quickly.
My assistants are Cheryl and Vivian, and they are both really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our
best mnake'"y6i feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called STARKE CHIROPRACTIC and
it is at 225 S. Orange St. (We are across from Winn Dixie). Our phone number is 904-368-0011. Call Cheryl, Vivian or me today for
an appointment. We can help you. Thank you, Martin Slaughter, D.C. Chiropractic Physician.

Judy Cunningham (right) accepts the high school
class ring of her deceased brother, Archie Green,
from Jim Filippi, who found it with a metal detector.


Woman presented


with deceased


brother's lost ring


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Who says Friday the 13"h is
unlucky?
Judy Cunningham received a
special present the day before
her Nov. 14 birthday when she
was presented with the high
school class ring of her
deceased' brother, Lloyd
"Archie" Green, by Jim
Filippi.
"I never knew he lost the
ring," Cunningham said.
Filippi, whose hobby is
metal detecting, was searching
around old docks in waist-deep
water at Kingsley Lake when
he came across the ring. The
ring, which was-denoted as
belonging to a Bradford High
School class of 1958 student,
was inscribed with the initials


"L.A.G." Filippi went to the
Bradford High School media
center and looked through a
1958 yearbook when he
discovered the ring must have
belonged to Green.
Green was a longtime city
council member in Keystone,
so Filippi contacted city hall,
which in turn contacted
Cunningham.
Filippi said this is the fourth
class ring he's found. He has
returned each ring to its
rightful owner or a family
member.
Cunningham said the gesture
meant a lot. She now has
something special that
belonged to her brother.
"It's something else to
remember him by," she said.
For Cunningham, Friday the
131h was anything but unlucky.

cross-load information.
Everybody does things slightly
different. You walk out of
there with a wealth of
knowledge."
Wildman and Johns were
also able to use their six years
of camaraderie and
teamwork-they served
together in their last two
units-to help them bring in
many of the points. It paid off
in an event called "Dialogue
Shoot," where the spotter had
to direct the shooter where to
aim specifically on a target.
The spotter was allowed to see
the overall target and was
instructed as to which
individual aspects of the target
needed to be shot. He then
relayed the specific location to
the shooter.
"We've been working
together so long we have that
communication already
developed... We have that
system already in place,"
Johns said.
"That's one thing that
showed very strong on our
behalf- the communication
between us," Wildman said.
"It's definitely a science now."
The duo received an
Ashbury Tactical .300 Win
Mag rifle as the 'first-place
trophy as , well as the
satisfaction of proving they
had what it took to be world-
class snipers.
"As much as we did down
(at Fort Benning)...none of it
would have been possible
without so many other people
assisting us-Fort Campbell
loaning us the equipment, Is1
Sgt. Johnson running our
logistics for us, the battalion
and the brigade, and post
chains of command, all trying
to give us assistance anywhere
we needed it," Wildman said.


Col. Richard
Gallant,
commander of
the Florida

Guard's 53"
Infantry
Brigade
Combat Team,
addresses the
crowd during
the Veterans
Day ceremony
at the Camp
Blandirig Joint
Training
Center.

Continued from page 2B

"These values have been
passed down through the
generations of American
veterans," Gallant said. "As
each generation is tested, each
new generation stands up to
answer the call. This is what
sets us apart. Our young
soldiers are willing to carry on
and transfer the legacy of
patriotism and sacrifice. They
are the strength of our army.
They are the strength of our
service. They are the strength
of our nation."
Gallant, who has been an
infantryman his whole service
career and a commissioned
officer the last 25 years, is
preparing to embark on a
historic deployment as the
commander of the Florida
Army National Guard's largest
unit. The 53'" Infantry Brigade
Combat Team's deployment
will mark the, largest single-
unit deployment in Florida
Army National Guard history.
However, Gallant has served
overseas before. He talked of
his 2003 deployment to
Afghanistan.

tremendous, positive impact
we are making in both Iraq and
Afghanistan," he said. "The
seeds of freedom will not grow
vibrantly or quickly unless the
soil is nurtured and tilled. That
is what our soldiers are doing,
building the infrastructure of
freedom, from security to
governance to economics and
wherever the needs or
challenges arise. Our soldiers
meet those challenges with
effectiveness, efficiency and
good, old American
ingenuity."
In closing, Gallant told the
crowd he wanted to share
comments from "a couple of
great Americans." First, in
quoting part of a Veterans Day
message delivered by former
President George W. Bush,
Gallant said, "From the fields
and forests of war-torn Europe
to the jungles of Vietnam,
from the deserts of Iraq and the
mountains of Afghanistan,
brave patriots have protected
our nation's ideals, rescued
millions from tyranny and
helped spread freedom around
the globe. They stood tall' in
the face of grave danger and
enabled our nation to be the
greatest force for freedom in
human history."
Gallant then shared part of a
speech delivered by Gen.


Colin Powell commemorating
the desegregation of the armed
forces in which Powell said,
"We must never forget. We
must never let our children
forget. We must never let
future generations forget the
sacrifice that was made by so
many people. We must never
let them forget our history
because it is our history that
informs our present and gives
us a vision of our future."
Finally, Gallant shared a
letter his unit received from
Gov. Charlie Crist. It applies
to soldiers currently serving,
Gallant said, but added it can

Indians roll to 55-0


homecoming win over Rams


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Reggie Thomas rushed for
122 yards and three
touchdowns as the Keystone
Heights football team had an
easy time of it on
homecoming, scoring eight
touchdowns in a 55-0 rout of
visiting Interlachen on Nov. 13
to close out the season. -
All but one of the Indians'
touchdowns came on the
ground as the team rushed for
246 yards on 38 carries-a 6-
yard per-carry average.
Interlachen (1-9) may have
entered the game with just one
win, but head coach Chuck
Dickinson said it was an
important win for Keystone,
which finishes the year with a
.500 record.
"For us, I think it was big for
the seniors to go out with a
win and for the underclassmen
to get to 5-5 after last year-a
disappointing 3-7," Dickinson
said. "Hopefully, next year we
can build on this."
The Indians will lose three
offensive linemen to
graduation. Their loss will be
hard to overcome, Dickinson
said, but the Indians return
everyone else on offense,
including Thomas, who capped


his night early in the third
quarter with a 32-yard scoring
run that put the Indians up 41-
0.
Thomas had a huge' impact
on Keystone after transferring
from Bradford High School
prior to the season.
"He's given us something
we've never had, some outside
speed," Dickinson said.
Also returning next year are
quarterback Brantley Lott and
wide receiver Ryan Latner,
who have been quite a
productive tandem this season.
Lott completed 7-of-10 passes
against Interlachen for 152
yards and one touchdown to
Latner. Latner caught four
passes for 93 yards.
It was a good showing, too,
for a defensive unit that has
struggled this year. The
Indians held the Rams to 77
yards and thwarted
Interlachen's only serious
scoring threat when Zach
Lambert intercepted a pass in
his own end zone with less
than 30 seconds remaining in
the first half.
Offensively, the Indians
wasted little time rolling
through the Interlachen
defense. They received the
game's opening kickoff and


scored on five plays. Shane
Jennings had a 22-yard run
that set up a first down at the
Interlachen 18 before Thomas
eventually scored on a 17-yard
run. Darby Johns' PAT capped
the three-minute drive, which
consisted of nothing but runs
by Thomas and Jennings.
Lott attempted his first pass
on the Indians' next
possession. It was a 34-yard
completion to Latner to the
Interlachen 21. Three straight
runs by Thomas afterward had
Keystone in the end zone
again. Thomas' 6-yard run put
the Indians up 13-0 with 4:14
left in the opening quarter.
Interlachen was able to cross
midfield the first two times it
had the ball, but Robbie
Rossano made a tackle for a 3-
yard loss on the Rams' second
possession, which, with a
fumble that resulted in a loss
of another 3 yards, forced a
punt.
Jennings, who finished the
game with 58 yards on eight
carries, did the bulk of the
work on the Indians' next
drive. He had runs of 5, 11 and
6 yards before catching a 5-
yard pass to set up a fourth-

to eventual district runner-up
Taylor County on the road in
which the lone score occurred
in the fourth quarter.
In a 27-22 loss to Union
County, the Tornadoes were
missing nine starters.
"We were just snakebit
injury-wise," Hoard said.
Moore, in her statement, said
a search committee, headed by
BHS Principal Doug Thoburn,
has been formed composed of
community members and BHS
staff. Notable members include
former Bradford head coaches
Hurse and Lennard Register.
Register never experienced a
losing season in his seven
years at the helm in the '50s
and '60s, while Hurse, who
coached the Tornadoes from
1962 through 1990, led the
team to state championships in
1965 and 1966.
The committee, which will
also include athletic director
Daniel Davis and former
coaches Inez Diggs, Jeremiah
Johnson and Harvey Lofton, is
scheduled to hold its first
meeting on Monday, Nov. 30.
Moore's statement adds that
applications are being accepted
via postings at the district
level, statewide through the'
Florida High School Athletic
Association Web site and
nationwide through the
American Football Coaches
Association and Teachers-
Teachers Web sites.
Moore said the committee
will select three to four
finalists who will be
interviewed by a small


Steve Hoard (left), shown during a Bradford High
School football practice, was fired after a three-year
stint as head coach.


committee of district staff. A
final selection will be made
following those interviews
with a successor in place by
early spring.
Hoard spent 10 years at BHS
overall, which followed a
seven-year stint at Union
County High School. He has
built many relationships in the
area during that time and has
experienced the deaths of
fellow faculty members,
administrators and even
students. He has invested a lot
in the community, which
makes the firing especially
.tough to take.
"It's going to be tough to
pull up anchor and go
somewhere else," Hoard said.
"This has become home."
Still, Hoard was gracious,
saying he enjoyed working
with the players, the three
principals he worked under


while head coach and many
members of the community,
whether they be Jeff Stockdale
or Byron Ramseur-past and
current team chaplains-
WEAG radio personalities
Terry Vaughan and Rick
Cragg, or ,the Cubbedges and
other members of the
Touchdown Club.
"I'm not going to make this
a negative thing and blame
people," Hoard said.
Hoard did say his firing fits
in line with the history of the
position since Hurse' resigned.
Hoard coached three years,
which is the average tenure of
each coach starting with Al
Werneke in 1991. Not every
coach during that span wyas
fired, but no one has held the
job for more than four seasons.
(Rowland Cummings coached
from 2000 through 2003
before resigning.)

and-l play at the Interlachen
17. Thomas converted the
fourth down in a big way,
ripping off a 12-yard run. That
set Jennings up for a 5-yard
touchdown run, capping a 72-
drive that put Keystone up 20-
0 early in the second quarter.
Keystone struggled to start
its next drive. An illegal-
procedure penalty and two
-straight incompletions had the
Indians facing third-and-15.
Lott completed a 14-yard pass
to Latner, while Jennings' I-
yard run on fourth-and-I gave
Keystone a first down at the
Interlachen 43. Alex Gonzales
put the Indians in the red zone
with a 12-yard run to the 15. A
14-yard reception by Chase
Julius set Lott up for a I-yard
touchdown plunge behind
center. Keystone led 27-0.

A pass breakup by Winston
Kicklighter on third down
forced the Rams to punt the
ball back to the Indians, who
needed just three plays to
cover 75 yards and put another
score on the board. A 5-yard
run by Thomas was followed
by a 40-yard pass play to tight
end Matthew Dickinson, who
was left in the middle of the
field. Dickinson gave the
Indians a first down at the
Interlachen 30. The next play,
Lott threw a laser to Latner in
the end zone for a touchdown
with 56 seconds remaining in
the half.
A 25-yard pass play gave the
Rams a first down at the
Keystone 15 with 28 seconds

left 'til halftime. Lambert's'
interception ended the threat.
It was the first of two
straight interceptions by
Keystone as Trevor Crews
intercepted a Rams pass on the
opening drive of the second
half. That set the Indians up at
the Interlachen 46. Four plays
later, Thomas ended his night
with a 32-yard jaunt into the
end zone. The Indians led 41-
0, which enforced a running
clock the remainder of the
game.
Johns and Rossano turned in
big plays defensively on the


ensuing series, with Johns
making a tackle for no gain
and Rossano sacking the
quarterback for an 8-yard loss.
Chase Chambers and Evan
Harvey also made big plays in
pass coverage to help force the
Rams to puht.
The Indians got a 7-yard
touchdown run from Bruce.
Kirksey to go up 48-0, while
time expired on Gonzales' 2-
yard touchdown run. In limited
action, Kirksey gained 38
yards on just three carries,
while Gonzales finished with
32 yards on six carries.

Tigers trail at half again, lose 25-14 to Red Devils


BY TYLER STONE
Special to the Times
Quarterback Chris
Alexander completed more
than 70 percent of his passes
and threw for 279 yards, but
the Union County 'football
team managed just 14 points in
a 25-.14 loss to host Williston
on Nov. 13 to close out the
season.
Alexander completed 19-of-
26 passes with a 27-yard
touchdown pass to Quentin
Johnson. He came close to
becoming the first-ever Union
quarterback to throw for 2,000
yards in a .season, falling just
200 yards short.
Despite Alexander's effort,
the Tigers (4-6) found
themselves trailing at the half
as they closed the season out
with four straight losses. They
scored a total of 14 first-half
points during those last four
games.
Williston quarterback
Dalton Edwards threw three
touchdown passes in the first
half to stake the Red Devils (7-
3) to a 25-6 lead.
On the first drive of the
game, the Devils blew down
the field and scored on the

Tigers to go up 6-0.
After the ensuing kickoff,
the Tigers started their drive
around mridfield. All they
could . do, however, was
complete a 5-yard pass to
Adam Cason. The next play,
the Tigers fumbled on an
Alexander sack. Williston
recovered and was able to.
drive downfield once again.
The Devils made it to the
Union 20-yard line, but the
defense held, forcing Williston
to attempt a field goal, which
was missed.

Alexander moved the ball
downfield, completing passes
to Johnson and Cason. A very
questionable call turned the
ball back over to the Red
Devils at around midfield.
Union defender Kendall
Wright played this game with
just as much intensity as the
last, deflecting a pass and
getting a sack on the drive.
Wright, though, was not the
only defensive player
showcasing his skills on the
drive. Raymond Randolph
made a huge stop in the red
zone, putting the Red Devils in
a third-down situation.

record of 22:25 to finish as the
top female runner at the Nov.

who competed at the event.
Her time was three seconds off
of a BMS record.


Teammate Autumn Rodgers
was the top female in her age
bracket,. running a time of
23:36.
Also competing from either
BMS or BHS were: Zach
Davis (22:12), David Weeks
(23:51), Evan. Coleman
(27:24), Christina Jordan
(28:23) and Steven Milner
(31:13).
"I was proud of them," said

club-race experience for most
of the participants.

The Tigers were able to hold
Williston to no points and took
over on the 5-yard line.
Alexander stayed on target,
and moved the Tigers to the
Williston 45. Justin Tyson
took a handoff and scored
from there. The Tigers missed
the PAT, leaving the game
knotted'at 6-all.
Union's defense was just not
able to keep the momentum
the Tigers gained from that
drive. Edwards scored on a run
to put the Devils up 12-6.
Tyson did the bulk of the
work on the ensuing drive as
the Tigers moved close to the
Williston end zone. Alexander
attempted just one pass, but
that was a huge completion to
Wright. An unsportsmanlike-
conduct call on the Tigers,
though, forced them back 15
yards. A fumbled' handoff to
Tyson resulted in Williston
gaining possession of the ball.
The Red Devils turned the
turnover into points, taking
advantage of a blown coverage
as Edwards threw his second
scoring toss. The extra point,
again, was missed. The score
stood at 18-6.
Near the end of the second
quarter, Union began to wilt.
Bryan Holmes had a promising
return, but fumbled the ball
right back to Williston. The
defense played well, putting
the Red Devils in a fourth-and-
long situation, but the Tigers
could not hold as Williston
scored on a 20-yard pass. The
PAT put the Devils up 25-6.
Holmes returned the
ensuring kickoff to midfield,
but the Tigers were unable to
put a scoring drive together


a. N


before halftime.
Union received the ball to
start the second half, but could
not get anything going.
Penalties and
miscommunications put the
Tigers in a fourth-and-long
situation. After an attempted
fake punt, a pass to Wright
was intercepted.
Despite the turnover, the


Red Devils and the Tigers
seemed to be at a standstill for
the rest of the quarter. The
next score did not occur until
the fourth quarter when
Johnson's touchdown
reception, along with a
successful two-point
conversion, pulled the Tigers
within 25-14.
Johnson finished the game


with seven receptions for 136
*yards.
After a great stand by the
defense, Alexander and the
offense drove down the field in
an attempt to complete a
comeback. Cason appeared to
have scored a touchdown,
' which was the initial ruling on
the field, but the call was
changed to a fumble.
