3 from Bradford


arrested for


attempted murder


Three Bradford County men
are being held on attempted mur-
der charges following an alterca-
tion near Lawtey on Feb. 5.
Mark Daniel Tatum, 19, An-
drew Joseph Vasquez, 19, both of
Lawtey, and Jason Alan Moody,
19, of Starke have all been arrest-
ed by Bradford County Sheriff's
Office investigators and charged
with attempted murder.
On Feb. 5, deputies were
called to a residence near Lawtey
by a friend of the three men. The
friend had received a call from
Vasquez, who told the friend that
he had been stabbed.
Deputies arrived to find both
Tatum and Vasquez seriously in-
jured andthree bloody butcher-
type knives lying on the floor of
the residence. Moody was not at
the residence when deputies ar-
rived.
Deputy James Albritton re-
ported that he observed a cut to
the right side of Tatum's throat
and a cut on his right shoulder


blade. Deputy Albritton observed
a stab wound in the middle of
Vasquez's chest and several oth-
er cuts all over his body.
Both men were transported to
Shands UF and both underwent
emergency surgery.
Moody was arrested by BCSO
deputies later on Feb. 5. He was-
charged with attempted murder,
larceny and robbery. The larceny
and robbery charges resulted
from an incident on July 4,2009,
at the Kangaroo convenience
store on S.R. .16, after which a
warrant was issued for Moody's
arrest.
Lt. Gail Russell interviewed
both Tatum and Vasquez at the
hospital Feb. 9 and they gave
conflicting accounts of the inci-
dent.
Vasquez allegedly told Russell
that the three men were involved
in an argument and that he was
the first one to pull out a knife.

poured gasoline all over the in-


terror of the victim's residence
while she and two of her children
were inside. Jackson had left the
residence on foot and witnesses
said that he might be in posses-
sion of a firearm.

As Shane arrived in the area,
he observed a man walking down
the middle of the street. The
man was identified as Jackson
and Shane drew his firearm and
ordered Jackson to remove his


hands from his pockets. Jackson
complied and no weapon was
found.on his person.

Jackson told Shane that he had
gotten into an argument with the
victim and may have taken things
a little too far because he poured
gasoline all over her house.
Back at the residence, the vic-
tim said that she allowed Jackson

Union has new director of emergency medical services


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

Chris Drum has been chosen as
the new director of Union Coun-'
ty Emergency Medical Services,
a position that became available
after former director, Allen Par-
rish, resigned last month.
The county made an internal
posting of the vacancy, and be-
sides Drum, two other applica-
tions were received from James
(Goodie) Goodwin and Gene
Raulerson. Raulerson, a 31-year
veteran emergency medical tech-
nician, paramedic and firefighter
with Union County, has been
serving as the interim director
since Parrish's resignation..
Last month, the board of coun-
ty commissioners appointed a
committee of five people to in-
terview the applicants and make
a recommendation to the board.
Serving on the committee were
Parrish, Tommy Riherd, Doug
York, Tommy Spires and Dr. Pe-


ter Gianas.
At the county meeting on Feb.
15, Chairman Karen Cossey in-
formed the -board that all three
applicants were highly qualified,
however, the committee had
nominated Drurm, and by unani-
mous vote, the board appointed
him to the position.
Drum, just days from his
40th birthday, began his career
14 years ago in 1996 as a U.S.
Army national registry emergen-
cy medical technician, where he
served as an airborne qualified
combat medic. He was stationed
,in a hospital in Ft. Polk, La.,
where he headed the emergency
room. "Whenever it was slow in
the ER, I would ridce along with
the paramedics and that's when
I realized that was what I wanted
to do," said Drum.
Returning home after a broken
sternum in 1999, Drum attended
Santa Fe College in Gainesville
while working triage and patient
care and evaluation at Florida


State Prison. After becoming
a certified paramedic, he took
his first job as such with Levy
County in October of 2000. He
was only there three months be-
fore taking a job with Bradford
County EMS.

"I really wanted to be at Brad-
ford because that's where Dr.
Pete Gianas is. Pete has seen ev-
erything... he has a lot of knowl-
edge and experience and I want-
ed that," Drum said.
Things began happening
quickly for Drum, who, within
a year and a half, was promoted
to operations captain. In 2004,
Drum was offered a position as
an adjunct professor at Santa
Fe College with paramedic and
emergency medical technician
students, a part-time job he still
holds.
He stayed with Bradford un-
til April 2005, when he joined
the staff at Union County EMS.
Around the same time, Drum


became a Trau-
ma One flight
paramedic for
Shands Jack-
sonville. He ..
also serves as
the quality as-
surance coor-
dinator for the
Trauma One-air
base in Lake .K
City.
Drum said
he has gained
extensive ex-
perience with
critically ill
patients from
both a hospital
and an on-the-
scene environ- Chl
ment throughout
North Florida
and South Georgia.
Drum has received certifica-
tion and/or licensing for the fol-
lowing: state certified paramedic,
neonatal resuscitation, advanced

Throughout his career, Drum


has received the Army Achieve-
ment Medal, Army Commenda-
tion Medal, National Defense
Service medal, was. named
Bradford County Employee of
the Year and Bradford County
Paramedic of the Year in 2002,
received the Medical Director's
Recognition Award and also the
Santa Fe Preceptor Award.

Regarding his new position as
EMS director in Union County,
Drum said he is very thrilled and
looks forward to the opportunity
to continue running a great de-
partment.
"Half of the crew here were
once my students at Santa Fe,"
he said. "Allen [Parrish] left the
'department in great shape and
my plans are to keep it going,
maintaining business as usual."
Drum will take over as EMS
director on March 1. He resides
in LaCrosse with his wife, Sheryl
and their two children, Madison,
12, and Mitchell, 7.

BY COURTNEY CREWS
Times Staff Writer
On Feb. 13 the Union County
High School Beta Club hosted
the very first Valentine's Pageant
in the UCHS auditorium.
Girls ages 2-13 were nervous
and excited about competing in
the pageant. Mothers of the con-
testants were nervous as well,
as they helped their daughters
dress and watched them walk
out on stage in front of family
and friends that filled the audi-
torium.
The contestants were judged
in the categories of casual wear,
formal wear and best Valentine
outfit. The Miss Valentine divi-
sion also included a talent com-
petition.
The Baby Cupid division was
the first to go on stage. These
two- and three-year-old cuties'
won the audiences' hearts with
their adorable smiles. Their per-
sonalities had everyone laughing
as they danced and turned circles.
across the stage-or were just
excited and happy to see familiar
faces in the crowd. The winners
in this division were as follows:
Baby Cupid 2010 Emmalee
Holl'ingsworth, first runner-up
Carsyn Dukes, second runner-up
Ava Kate Walker and third run-
ner-up Jessica Brenton.
Next on stage was the Little
Miss division. The four- to six-
year-old beauties never missed a
beat as they walked out, blowing


kisses and waving to everyone
in the audience. Their big smiles
showed they were truly having a
good time.
Just before taking her turn on,
the stage, six-year-old Brooklyn
Crews said, "I feel like a prin-
cess." Winners in this division
included Little Miss Valentine
2010 Macy Lynne Malphurs,
first runner-up Brooklyn Crews,
second runner-up Aliyah Han-
cock and third runner-up Olivia
Watkins.
The Junior Miss Valentine di-.
vision was third to go on stage:
These seven- to nine-year-old
girls modeled as if they owned
the stage. Not only were they
beautiful, but they were, very
confident as well. Winners in this
division were Junior Miss Valen-
tine 2010 Kelsey Starling, first
runner-up Brooklynn Cunning-
ham, second runner-up Hannah
Sanderson and third runner-tiup
Katie Tomlinson.
Last to appear on. stage .were
the Miss Valentine contestants.
The 10-13-year-old girls were not
only gorgeous; but they had the
audience clapping and cheering
with their awesome talent perfor-
mances. Winners in this division

Adah, Ruth, Esther,
Martha, and Electa are
biblical heroines of the
Eastern Star Order. Adah
worked to preserve her
father's honor. Ruth strug-
gled as a widow, but was
faithful to the demands of
honor and justice. Esther
was prepared to sacrifice
her crown to save her peo-
ple. Martha displayed her-
faith in Jesus Christ and
eternal life, and Electa was
a testimony that we should
love one another.
Mary Jane Noyes, a
past grand organist for the


Grand Chapter of Florida,
provided appropriate mu-.
sic. Following the initia-
tory work, refreshments,
were served in the lodge'
dining room.

Juvenile
found with
marijuana
at UCHS
BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor
Union County School Re-
source Officer James Crews was
called to -Union County High
School on Feb. 3, where he met
with Principal Alex Nelson. Nel-
son reported that he received in-
formation from another school's
administrator that a 16-year-old
high school student was in pos-
.session.of marijuana.
Nelson advised Crews that he
had questioned the male juvenile
about the marijuana and the stu-
dent allegedly removed' an Al-
toids canister from his left front
pafits pocket. Nelson gave Crews
the canister that contained four
small plastic bags of.marijuana,
seven clear plastic bags contain-
ing marijuana residue, a razor
blade and a metal pipe contain-
ing marijuana. A field test was
conducted and proved positive
for 0.13 grams of marijuana.
The juvenile was placed under
arrest for possession with intent
to sell on school grounds and
possession of drug parapherna-
lia.

LB man
charged DUI
On the evening of Feb. 3,
Union County Sheriff's Office
Deputy Mindy Goodwin was
on patrol on S.R. 121 near Hill-
andale Feed Store when she ob-
served a small green vehicle with


a headlight out and no taillights.
Goodwin attempted a traffic stop
and,as she caught up to the ve-
hicle, it was driven off the road
and onto a curb near Lake Butler
Elementary School.
Though she activated her
lights and siren, she said the ve-
hicle continued to the intersec-
tion of S.R. 121 and S.R. 231
where the driver pulledover onto
the open field by the Kangaroo
convenience store. Before Good-
win was able to completely stop
her patrol car, the driver exited
his- vehicle. Goodwin )observed
that the driver, Jer, Jeremiah Thomas
Parrish, 27, of Lake Butler, was
unsteady on his feet and alleg-
edly had a strong odor of alcohol
about his person.
Goodwin observed that Parrish
continued to be unsteady on his
feet while she spoke with him.


When Goodwin asked Parrish if
he had been drinking that eve-.
ning, he allegedly stated that he
had consumed several beers 30
minutes prior to the traffic stop.
Goodwin also observed four cold
cans of Natural Ice beer in the
passenger's seat of the vehicle,
and one of the,cans was empty.
Also located on the passenger-
side floorboard, was an opened
pint of vodka that was half full.
Parrish allegedly admitted to
drinking the beer and a little of
the vodka before leaving his resi-
dence.
Parrish then failed several field
sobriety tests before Goodwin
placed him under arrest for DUI.
At the Union County Jail, Par-
rish gave consent for a breath test
with readings of 0.294 and 0.298,
both more than three times the le-
gal limit.

money for the Bradford Ecumenical Ministries Food
Pantry with a Feb. 20 concert at the Bradford High
School auditorium.

.A good guy giving a good

That's what Starke resident

Rogers this Saturday, Feb. 20, at
7 p.m. in the' Bradford High

which may be purchased at the

received tremendous support
from community individuals,
businesses and organizations,
McRae wishes more people
would turn out for what he
termed an "outstanding" show.
"I'm' having'difficulty getting
people into the auditorium,"
McRae said. "I don't understand
that."
McRae said he and those who
know Rogers personally call
him "the good guy" because
that, in fact, is what Rogers is.
-The only payment Rogers re-
ceives for his performance is
what will cover the cost of
bringing his sound equipment
and paying the salary of a single
helper.
"James has been very, very
generous with his time, his tal-
ents and his money," McRae
said.
Rogers, who also shares the
proceeds of CD sales at the
event with the Food Pantry, said
the cause is one that is near and
dear to his heart. He said his
parents both lost their jobs at a
large textile factory when he
was a child. At the time, no
other work was to be found in
the area. Rogers can remember
the grateful feeling he had when-
people in the community would
help his family out by giving
them food.
"It was really tough," he said.

Teammate Amanda
Paredes places in the
top 10 of her class

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Keystone Heights girls'
weightlifting coach Terri Parrish
said weightlifting is not a sport
where hard work always pays
off, but freshman Morgan
Boettcher's hard work was cer-
tainly rewarded as she won the
199-pound class at the Florida
High School Athletic Associa-
tion Finals, which were held
Feb. 13 in New Port Richey.
"I was just speechless," said
Boettcher, who was Keystone's
first lifter to place at' the state
finals in four years. "I had peo-
ple jumping all over me."
Boettcher had a bench press
of 190 pounds and a clean and
jerk of 175 pounds'to finish with
a 365-pound total. The runner-
up in her class, Jordan Paolucci
of Lake Mary, finished with a
350-pound total.
Parrish said Boettcher is
"blessed" in that she is strong,
but also said weightlifters with
Boettcher's work ethic are few
and far between. Parrish said
Boettcher works in the weight
room all year.


That goes a long way in ena-
bling a freshman to win a state
championship.
"She's put us back on the map
again," Parrish said. Keystone
produced three state champions
during 2002-04 (Erica Seypura,
Kayla Couey and Brittany
Meng) and a total of 18 state
medal winners from 2002
through 2006.
Parrish said Boettcher has to
be one of the few freshmen to
win a state title in girls' weight-
lifting. Boettcher has qualified
for the state finals each year
she's been at the junior-senior
high school. She finished in sey-
enth-place at last year's finals,
which left her one place shy of
earning a medal.
Parrish said she knew
Boettcher definitely had a shot
of at least placing this season.
Boettcher said she did not seri-
ously think about winning a
state championship ,prior to the
start of the season.
"I was hoping, though," she
said;

So how does Boettcher follow
this season with three more
years of eligibility left?
"My new' goal is to try. and
break the state records,"
Boettcher said.


Morgan Boettcher, who
is just a freshman, won
the 199-pound class at
the state weightlifting
finals.


Paredes wraps up career
with lOth-place finish
Amanda Paredes joined
Boettcher at the .state finals,
placing 10'h in the 110-pound
class with a 235-pound total.
Like Boettcher, Paredes began
competing in' weightlifting in
seventh grade. Also like
Boettcher, she is strong. She was
the lightest member of her class
at the state finals at 104 pounds,
yet she benched 125 pounds,
which was ,the fourth-highest
total along with one other lifter.
Parrish said Paredes is able to
bench 135 pounds.
"She has been very consistent
in that weight class for years,"
Parrish said.
Paredes had a clean and jerk
attempt of 110 pounds to finish
in a tie with two other lifters at
the state finals. She earned the
10'h-place finish as opposed to
11h or 12'h due to body weight.
Her 235-pound total was actu-
ally the seventh-highest total in
the class as several lifters ahead
of her finished tied with each
other.
Clay's Brooke Baudendistel
won the championship with a
total of 285 pounds. Natalie
Marenghi of River Ridge was
runner-up with a 275-pound
total.


Chipoletti speaks on Williston situation


Editor's note: A reporter with
the Bradford County Telegraph
was unable to reach Bradford
High School head football coach
Derek Chipoletti prior to last
week's deadline to get comment
on the forfeiture of games at
Williston High School due to an
academically ineligible player.
Chipoletti did want to speak on
the matter, so is being given the
opportunity to do so this week.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
The timing was unfortunate.
New Bradford High School
head football coach Derek
Chipoletti said his still-young
head coaching .career received a
bit of a "black eye" after Willis-
ton High School, where he
coached last year, had to forfeit
wins in football last season due
to playing an ineligible player. It
was a moment that led to a bit of
self-reflection.
"I had to kind of ask myself,
'Am I in the right business?
Who does this happen to? This
doesn't happen every day.' I
really pride myself on doing the
right thing and teaching kids to
do the right thing."
Though Chipoletti, who is
preparing for his second year as
a head coach, said he was not
directly responsible for monitor-
ing player academics, the inci-
dent was hard to pul behind him.
"This was an embarrassing
moment," he said. "It was hard

for the last couple of days to get
over it, but you've got to. ,
"I take pride in everything
that I do. I cross my 't's and dot
my 'i's. Anything I am associ-
ated with I want to be first-
class."
Chipoletti said when he was
in the process of being hired as
Williston's head coach last year,
he was asked to serve as athletic
director as well. He had no in-
terest in that and still has no
interest in being an athletic di-
rector. What he eventually
agreed to is to split the athletic
director supplement with some-
one else. Chipoletti said he took
on the financial responsibilities
of the department, while the
other person was supposed to
monitor player eligibility.
"When you play somebody
and you put somebody in charge
of something, you expect it to
get done. Unfortunately, ulti-
mately, my name, in the begin-
ning of my career, has kind of
gotten a black eye because of
it."
Chipoletti said he was treated
well by the administrators he
worked with in Williston, so he
hated to see the incident happen.
He especially feels bad for the


players.
"For a lot of those kids, athlet-
ics is one of the few positives
they have," Chipoletti said.
"Having that happen to them
was not good."
Chipoletti is now ready to


move forward. He is pleased.
with the dedication that has been
shown so far by BHS students
interested in playing football. He-
said 90 students have been
working out in the weight room
each day.

Bradford wrestler Shawn
Boyette, having come so close
in his sophomore and junior
,years, made good on his final try
at reaching the state finals, plac-
ing fourth at the Region 1-Class
A finals, which were held at
Clay High School in Green
Cove Springs Feb. 12-13.
Boyette, who wrestles in the
171-pound class, came up one
win shy of qualifying for state in
each of the last two seasons, but
went 4-2 this past weekend to
finally earn that elusive trip.
"I'm very excited to finally
make it," he said.
In the process, Boyette also
earned his 100'h career win and
improved his record this season
to 29-5.
The regional finals did not
quite end as Boyette would have
liked. He had a chance to win
the consolation finals and finish
in third place, but he was pinned
by Matt Fields of Wakulla. It
was "hard and horrible," Boyette
said, adding that he was injured.
By making it to the consola-
tion finals, though, he had al-
ready wrapped up a state berth.
"I am looking forward to go-
ing to state and hopefully win-
ning a few," Boyette said.

scheduled for Friday-Saturday,
Feb. 19.-20, at the lkefand Cen-

first round, but he's Oloking
forward to the opportunity now
that he's got it.
"It's exciting,ie said.
Boyette will wrestle Derek
Crow of South Fort Myers in the
first round. Crow has a 51-4
record. Win or lose, Boyette
would then face either Avon

If you like the sound of Nash-

promises to be one of the most

the local Food Pantry.
Rogers' one-man show has
been a regular once-a-year fea-
ture for the past '19 years-he
has actually assisted the Food
Pantry in some form for 20
years-providing entertainment
for the community on level with
the finest Nashville tradition as
result of a chance conversation.

show, Jimmy suggested Rogers
come to Starke for a perform-
ance, citing the needs of the
Food Pantry. Rogers agreed, on
the spot. He has returned each
year, in February, with the ex-
ception of one year. Joe Gissy
couldn't pinpoint the year, but
remembered the show was can-
celled because of the death of
Rogers' mother-in-law.
The show is nqt a money-
maker for Rogers. He accepts
reimbursement of actual expense
in bringing his sound equipment
to Starke in a truck he owns and
salary for a single helper. The
two stay overnight in a local
hotel, packing up and returning
to Pigeon Forge, Tenn., on Sun-
day. During intermission, he
hawks CDs and divides the pro-
ceeds with the Food Pantry
sponsor.
It really is a strange situation,
in that Rogers. and'. Gissydhad'
never met until that dayin1 Dol- '
lywood. The two have become
fast friends in the intervening
years, and Rogers always visits
with the Gissy family after pre-
senting a show in Starke.
Rogers' itinerary ranges from
the Canadian border to the Gulf
of Mexico, including a recefit
trip to, Lecanto, a small town
southwest of Crystal River. Ex-
cept for his forays to outlying
communities, he is a full-time
performer at Dollywood in Pi-
geon Forge. Several /years ago,
he left Dollywood afi invested
in a theater in Pigeon Forge, but
eventually sold his/interest and
returned to Dollyw6od.
Rogers may play country mu-
sic; but he is no redneck or
country hick. In fact, Rogers has
a bachelor's degree from the
University of Tennessee at Chat-
tanooga and had his sights set on


becoming a lawyer. However,
his music got in the way of post-
graduate work, and he remained
an entertainer, singer and song-
writer.
He was born in Chattanooga,
Tenn., on Dec. 22, 1949, to
hard-working textile plant work-
ers that applied Christian princi-
ples to child rearing and taught,
the value of working to make a
good life. His parents also en-
couraged making music. to es-
cape the drudgery of working in
cotton mills with long hours and
low wages. From early on,
Rogers remembers his' father
playing a steel guitar and his.
mother playing any one of sev-
eral instruments and singing at
family gatherings and church
services.
In 1958, 9-year-old .Rogers
and his family moved to Fort
Oglethorpe, Ga., where his par-
ents continue to live, and joined
First Baptist Church. It was in
Fort Oglethorpe where Rogers
received his first guitar-
Christmas 1960 at age 11-with
the promise of a finer instrument
next Christmas if he learned to
play. The second guitar arrived
as promised, since Rogers had
mastered the first gift.
Rogers' dream, though, was
to become a lawyer. He played
his guitar for the sheer pleasure
of making music, but it contin-
ued to be secondary to his
dream, even though he was now
playing extensively at social get-
togethers and other venues from
time to time.
In school, Rogers lettered in
track, lifted weights and worked
in a drug store. He played in a
local band for sock-hops and
other occasions, always popular
and well liked by his peers. He
graduated from Lakeview High
School in 1967 and was voted
the "Mpst Handsome" and.
"Most PFpular" student in His
class.
Rogers enrolled in Dalton Jr.
College and received his associ-
ate's degree in 1969. He began
classes at the University of Ten-
nessee at Chattanooga, majoring
in political science. He also
joined the National Guard.
While attending college, Rogers
played in "The Expressions"
band, but was kicked out be-
cause he didn't practice. There
weren't enough hours in the day
for all his activities.
His Guard unit was, activated,
and James missed one and a half
years of school, but making mu-
sic continued, as he entertained
the men of his unit'with his gui-
tar. He returned to school and
received his bachelor's degree in
1974. By that time,'the die was
cast, and he turned to music full
time.

It is a sad commentary on our
community that his annual pro-
gram isn't better supported be-
cause he provides a show on par
with the best of Branson, Mo.,
and the charity he supports is a
real life-saver to people that are
in need of food. The high school
auditorium seats 750 people, but
it is never more than half filled,
and the lack of attendance is
frustrating to Food Pantry work-
ers, whose work is gratis.
Treat yourself and family to
an outstanding evening of enter-
tainment this Saturday at 7 p.m.

ROGERS
Continued from Page 1B

"I've kind of been there. I un-
derstand."
That's why Rogers said it
would be a blessing if the BHS
auditorium was packed for his
show-not because he wants to
play before a full house, but
because it would mean that
many more 'people in need of
food would benefit.
If you've never seen him per-
form in Starke, Rogers said, "I
try to make the show uplifting
and fun for the entire family." If
you have seen him perform,
that's OK, because Rogers does
not perform the same show
twice.
"He changes it a little bit
every year and makes sure he
adds a new touch to it," McRae
said.
Rogers said this year's show
will include a special perform-
ance dedicated to the "old-time
cowboys." It coincides with a
new CD of Rogers' that includes
his all-time favorite songs, in-
cluding "My Heroes Have Al-
ways Been Cowboys."
Rogers will also sing the
songs he's expected to sing. He
is known for a number of patri-
'otic songs, including "I Guard

3 charged with

attempted

murder
Three Bradford County men
are being held on attempted
murder charges. following an
altercation near Lawley on Feb.
5.
Mark Daniel Tatum, 19, An-
drew Joseph Vasquez, 19, both
of Lawtey, and Jason Alan
Moody, 19, of Starke have all
been arrested by Bradford
County Sheriff's Office investi-
gators and charged with at-
. tempted murder.
On Feb. 5, deputies were
called to a residence near Law-
tcy by a friend of the three men.
The friend had received a call
from Vasquez, who told the
friend that he had been stabbed.
Deputies arrived to find both
Tatum and Vasquez seriously
injured and three bloody
butcher-type knives lying on the
floor of the residence. Moody
was not at the residence when
deputies arrived.
Deputy James Albritton. re-
ported that he observed a cut to
the right side of Tatum's throat
and a cut on his right shoulder
blade. Deputy Albritton ob-
served a stab wound in the mid-
dle of Vasquez's chest and sev-
eral other cuts all over his body.
Both men were transported to
Shands UF and both underwent
emergency surgery.
Moody was arrested by BCSO
deputies later on Feb. 5. He was
charged with attempted murder,
larceny and robbery. The lar-
ceny and robbery charges re-


suited from an incident on July

Moody's arrest.
Lt. Gail Russell interviewed
both Tatum and Vasquez at the
hospital Feb. 9 and they gave
conflicting accounts of the inci-
dent.
Vasquez allegedly told Rus-
sell that the three men were in-
volved in an argument and that
he was the first one to pull out a
knife. Vasquez said Tatum
struck first, however, and
Vasquez retaliated by cutting
Tatum's throat. Vasquez
claimed Moody then held him
down by sitting on him while
Tatum cut and stabbed Vasquez
multiple times.'
Tatum allegedly told Russell a
different story. He said when the
argument broke out, Vasquez
retrieved a knife and cut Tatum
several times. Tatum said he
passed out and regained con-
sciousness later. Tatum told
Russell -he never cut or stabbed
anyone.
Moody refused to make a
statement.
Tatum and Vasquez are
charged with attempted murder
and bond has been set at
$250,000 for each one. Bond on
Moody has been set at $266,000,
due to the additional charges.
All three remain in the Bradford
County Jail.

"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 a
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 me with their '---. ': : -s, migraines, chronic pain, sciatica, shoulder/arm pain, carpal tunnel
syndrome, 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 very 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 make you 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.
Our office policy is the patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel payment or be reimbursed for payment for any other service. examination or treatment which is performed as a
reult of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for free or reduced Ice services, examination or treatment X-rayv arc onl takenif medically necessary Due to federal regulations this may not apply to

Darius Corbitt gets some rough treatment from the hands of several Crescent City
players.

Tornadoes get points when


needed in semifinal victory


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Despite only .one field goal in
the fourth quarter, the Bradford
boys' basketball team was able
to defeat Crescent City 49-47 in
the semifinals of the District 4-
3A tournament on Feb. 12 in,
Keystone Heights.
Bradford let a six-point lead
slip away, missing its first eight
field-goal attempts of the fourth
quarter. Crescent City went up
44-43 with 2:47 to play after
Laron Moore made two free
throws.
"We needed a big stop,"
Bradford head coach Traavis
Chandler said.
He got it when Marcus Ardley
made a steal along the sideline.
Ardley passed the ball to Harris,
who drove to the basket and
scored on a layup with 54 sec-
onds to play.,
"It felt good," said Harris,
who was also fouled on the play.
Harris made the free throw to
put Bradford up 46-44. Ardley
and Darius Corbitt combined for
three free.throws, with Corbitt
grabbing three defensive boards
after in the final 54 seconds.
Crescent City's Jerrell Ox-
endine made a 3-pointer as time
expired.
Bradford had lost two previ-

ous games to Crescent City, but
Chandler said his- team was
ready to take on the Raiders.,
again in the tournament.
"They were more pumped up
'(than in the two losses)," Chan-
dler said of his players. "I.
thought they had more intensity-
tonight."
Crescent City turned the ball
over 10 times in the first quarter,
but still took a lead into the sec-
ond quarter. Bradford got off to
a fast start, scoring seven
straight points to go up 7-2.
Corbitt and Harris each had a
basket, while Terrance Davis
made a 3-pointer.
The Raiders then scored the
next seven points. Steven Baker
was fouled on a successful 3-
point shot. He made the ensuing
free throw to put Crescent City
up 9-7. Yakeem Griner scored
on an assist from Harris to tie
the game, but the Raiders got
two free throws from Oxendine I
with eight seconds remaining in
the quarter to go up 11-9.
Crescent City would lead by S
as many as five points in the I
early stag o'of the'second quar- (
ter. It was a 20-15 game when
Bradford's Justin McBride E
scored down low off of an assist 7
from Griner. McBride was 6
fouled on the play, but did not 3
make the free throw. Griner, D


though, tipped in the miss to pull
the Tornadoes within 20-19.
Oxendine would score and
draw a foul, making the ensuing
free throw to put the Raiders up
by four with 1:21 remaining in
the half, but Treyonte Covington
drained a 3-pointer to make it a
one-point game again. The
Raiders took a 26-22 lead into
the half, though, when Darrin
Blye, fouled on a 3-point shot
with nine seconds on the clock,
made.2-of-3 free throws.
Bradford put together a 12-2
run in the third quarter to take
the lead for good. Corbitt scored
off of an offensive rebound to
start the run. A 'score- by
McBride was followed by back-
to-back 3-pointers by Ardley
and Davis. Another basket by
Ardley put the Tornadoes up 42-
33.
The Tornadoes entered the
fourth quarter with a six-point
lead, but only managed one free
throw until Harris' layup' with
ess than a minute remaining.'

For the best protection, plant
our trees, bushes and shrubs
together, in three or more con-
tinuous rows, fairly close to-

planting the tallest trees in the

to plant windbreaks upwind of

sized trees need to be set back
far enough so, once mature, their
canopies are at least 20 feet

least 50 feet.
The success of your planting

such as your particular location,
the kind of soil, and the kind of
care you can. give to the trees.
Careful planning and proper
planting of trees around your

also could cut your utility bills
