Burglars busted with help of dog team

The canine led
officers to a
residence more than
24 hours after the
crime occurred.

On Dec. 12, a Lake Butler
resident reported her home on
Southwest S.R. 121 had been
It was discovered that entrance
to her home was gained by
smashing the rear glass door of
the residerfce. Among the items
reported as stolen were guns,
jewelry, a 50-inch plasma TV
and other various items valued
at -$10,000. There was also ap-
proximately $500 in damages to
the home.
The day after the burglary was
reported, Major Garry Seay and
Investigator Jerry Feltner of the
Union County Sheriff's Office
met up with officers from the
Reception and Medical Center's
K-9 unit.
Although 24 hours had passed,
the K-9 team led the way to a res-
idence on Southwest 48'h Terrace
near Worthington Springs where
Linfert Cameron Gipson, 19,
was found in possession of the
stolen property. Also located at
the home were a number of sto-
len items believed to have been
reported missing in other recent
home burglaries.

In a written statement about
the capture, RMC Warden Brian
Riedl wrote,"l simply cannot say
enough about our K-9 team here
at RMC."
"Even in favorable conditions,
finding a suspect is a highly dif-
ficult mission, but to establish
a track and make a catch on a
trail that was a full day old, in
extremely tough conditions, is
exemplary!" wrote Riedl. "Their
daily dedication and training was
the key to last night's capture,
which was more akin to a scene
from a Hollywood production
than real life. It truly was that

The time interval, high winds
and ongoing drought conditions
made for a less-than-favorable
tracking environment, but team
members said the tracking dog
took little time in establishing a
track and led his handlers to the
home of Gipson, approximately
one-half mile away. The officers
involved in this capture were K-
9 Patriot, Lt. Bret Dukes, Sgt.
Bobby Adams and Officer Rich-
ard Shuler.
Gipson was charged with.bur-
glary, grand theft, four counts of
grant theft of a firearm and four
counts of possession of a firearm
by a convicted felon.

Several stolen Items recovered by the UCSO and thought to have been stolen in recent
home burglaries included a number of guns, ammunition, a metal detector, various
power tools, lawn equipment and children's toys.

An accomplice, Christopher
John Robbins, 32, of Lake But-
ler, was also arrested and booked
on the same charges. Major Scay
stated that more charges are
pending as the sheriff's office
sorts through the recovered sto-
len items. Several stolen items
are believed to have already been
sold. Seay added that additional
arrests are also expected.
"The work these guys (RMC

K-9 teams) do is special and is
not something everyone is cut out
for. One night you may be track-
ing a suspected murderer...the
next someone's lost loved one,"
said Riedl.
"Our K-9 teams approach both
situations with equal passion and
the service they provide the sur-
rounding communities is invalu-
able," he said.
There are 37 canine teams

located at prisons throughout
Florida, who are on call 24 hours
a day to respond to local law en-
forcements' requests for assis-
tance in locating individuals.

Last year alone, DOC's blood-
hounds were called to assist sher-
iff's offices, police departments,
the Florida Highway Patrol and
others in need 611 times-aver-
aging close to two calls per day.

Burn ban set

for all of Union

Times Editor

An immediate state of
local emergency order ban-
ning all outdoor burning
and .the use of flares, ex-
plosives, sparklers or other
outdoor burning devices has
been issued to all of Union
County. The.ban went into
effect on Dec. 20.
According to Union
County Emergency Man-
agement Center Director
Doug York, there is cur-
rently a severe threat of fire
in Union County.

"The drought index and
the windy conditions have
increased the threat of
wildfires in the county,"
York said. "We had two re-
cent close calls and we do
not want to risk the lives of
Union County residents or
*their property," he said.
York said the Florida
Division of Forestry and
weather forecasters have
engaged resource deploy-

ment in various parts of the
state where the drought in-
dex continues to remain at
a significant threat level in
Northeast Florida, includ-
ing Union County.

Citizens of Union Coun-
ty should be aware that
during this state of local
emergency, the sale, dis-
bursement and discharge of
fireworks or flares is pro-
hibited. Also prohibited is
all outdoor burning of lawn
debris, trash or other debris
throughout Union County.
Only monitored outdoor
barbecuing is allowed dur-
ing this ban.

No burn authorizations
will be provided during the
time of this ban. The order
will be reviewed every 14
days for a continuance or a
withdrawal of the ban. For
more information, please

agement at

that allows county to provide solid

waste, EMS and fire protection

A special public
meeting is set
to take place on

in Worthington

Times Editor

On Dec. 7, Union County
Board Chairman Karen Cossey
received a certified letter mailed
from Worthington Springs Mayor
John Rimes Ill and Worthington
Springs Town Council President
Robert Benson.
In the letter, Benson and
Rimes stated that the Worthing-
ton Springs Town Council had
adopted a resolution to end an
interlocal agreement between
the county and Worthington
The county currently has in-
terlocal agreements with not only
Worthington Springs, but Rai-
ford and the city of Lake Butler.
Those agreements outline that,
by means of a special assess-

ment on every property owner's
tax bill, the county provides each
municipality's citizens with gar-
bage collection site services, fire
protection and emergency medi-
cal services.
County Attorney Russell
Wade explained that according
to,Florida law, every municipal-
ity in Union County, (Worthing-
ton Springs, Raiford and Lake
Butler), must enter interlocal
agreements with the county for
these services.
"Because they are municipali-
ties, the county cannot provide
services for their citizens without
permission from them," Wade
Wade explained that permis-
sion from each municipality pro-
vides citizens within each city's
or town's municipal limits with
the same services as those pro-
vided to citizens in the unincor-
porated parts of the county.
"Everyone across the board
pays the same fees, regardless of
where they reside," Wade said.
According to the letter sent to
Cossey by Rimes and Benson,
the Worthington Springs Town
Council signed the resolution
authorizing the men to represent
the town's citizens and dissolve

the agreement with the county as
of Jan. 1.
The justification for doing so
is listed as the county's failure
to come to terms with the town
regarding disputes on the collec-
tion of assessment fees. The let-

town itself, thus becoming a bur-
den on both the town's govern-
ment and residents."
Wade said that as the county
attorney, he is unable to com-
ment in detail on the dispute.
As outlined in the letter, how-

ter states that the town council
wants to examine more closely
the costs and expenses incurred
and collected by both units of
government and fairly adjust the

porates a decision by the town to

county voluntarily placed inside
the.Jimber Village subdivision
to handle the overflow for the
large mobile home community.
Without the interlocal agree-
nient, the county must remove
these receptacles on Jan. 1. It
also means that the county EMS
and volunteer fire department
personnel must vacate their lo-
cations as well, because they are
part of the interlocal agreement.
For unknown reasons, Rimes
and Benson set the proposed date
of a conflict assessment meeting
with the county for Wednesday,
Jan. 5. In essence, by law, that
leaves the citizens of Worthing-
ton Springs without any of these
services for days, or at least until
the conflict is resolved.
Union County's District 3
commissioner is Jimmy Tall-
man. District 3 is comprised of
the Worthington Springs area.
Tallman said, "Come Jan. 1,
the county clerk's office will ad-
just all the property tax bills for
Worthington Springs to remove
the special assessment since the
city's permission is being re-
"But what's going to hap-
pen to the citizens of Worthing-
ton Springs?" Tallman asked.
"Where will they take their
garbage? Who will respond if
someone has a heart attack or if
there's a fire, when the county
does not havt permission to en-
ter Worthington Springs and as-
sist?" he asked.
. hose answers have yet to be
provided by the mayor.
Out of concern for his dis-
trict's citizens and the urgency
of the matter, Tallman contacted

Myspace page, "You just
know that if Jimmie is singing,
preachin' and layin' down the
law, Southern rock music is alive
and well. Southern rock is the
staple of today's country music
and many are looking for what
Jimmie has naturally."
He has made three albums:

Rimes and suggested an earlier
date for a meeting, a date prior to
the county's permissions being
. That public meeting has been
set for Tuesday, Dec. 28, at 2
p.m. at the Worthington Springs
Community Center on S.R. 121.
At the county's regular month-
ly meeting on Dec. 20, a Conflict
Resolution Board was appointed
to represent the county. Board
members include Tallman,
County Commissioner Wayne
Smith, Board Chairman Karen
Cossey, County Finance Direc-
tor Donna Jackson and County
Attorney Russ Wade.
Cossey, who is at home recov-
ering from surgery, will tempo-
rarily be represented by board
secretary Diane Hannon.
"It is not our desire to end these
services," Tallman said. "It is not
our choice, but we are being told
to do so."
Attorney Wade wants to make
it clear that this issue affects only
those living in the incorporated
town of Worthington Springs.
All other citizens of the county
are not affected by this issue.
"If you live in Raiford, Lake
Butler, or the unincorporated ar-
eas of the county, nothing will
change for you. This only af-
fects the town of Worthington
Springs," Wade said.
"Two things the county wants
everyone to know is that as of
Jan. I, the county will not be pro-
viding fire, EMS or garbage ser-
vices to Worthington Springs,"
said Wade. "The other thing, the
flipside is that property owners in
Worthington will no longer have
a county-imposed special assess-
ment on their tax bills."
All Worthington Springs citi-
zens are encouraged to attend the
Dec. 28 meeting.

Big drug bust in Clay nabs 15 from KH-Melrose area, more arrests coming

Over 50 Clay
County residents
were involvedd
in the sweep

Monitor Editor

A Clay County Sheriff's Of-
:fice drug raid held over the last
two weeks netted more than 50
people from Middleburg and the
:Lake Region alone. Many of
those arrested sold and.distrib-
uted drugs; only one or two were
arrested merely f~i. possession.
Many of the defendants were r-
rested for illegal possession or
for sale and distribution of pre-
scription medications.
Lt. Barry Abramowitz, who
heads up the CCSO Drug En-
forcement Division, said last
week the raid was the first in
about a year, and that it had
been tightly coordinated with
the quad-county "Cops Without
Borders" policy.
Under that agreement, deputies
Sin one county may make arrests
in another county, after tightly
coordinated efforts with Alach-
ua, Putnam, Clay and Bradford
County sheriffs' offices.
Abramowitz said that in some
cases, those arrested had previ-
ous drug offenses while others
did not. Almost all of those ar-
rested had warrants written for
their arrest on Dec. 10. The ar-
rests were made during a sweep
on Dec. 15.
"In some cases, it's the econ-
omy," he said. "People are tak-
ing some of their prescribed
pain-killers and selling the rest."
Abramowitz said the sweep was
not over and more arrests were
likely in the coming weeks.
Recent information suggests
that on the street, one Oxycontin
or Oxycodone can netas much as
$80 per pill. The list of those ar-
rested in the Lake Region is var-
ied and extensive.

tions possession of 0.3 grams of

153 children take part in Shop with a Cop program

Regional A, '. *.' rtA Editor
At first glance, it appeared
as if the biggest sting operation
was in progress as the Wal-
Mart of Starke parking lot
contained quite a number of
vehicles belonging to multiple
law-enforcement agencies.
That was the view from
outside on Dec. 15, hut a step
inside the store gave one a
Jillerent picture. Law-
enforcement personnel were
not armed with guns, but with
shopping carts, ready to escort
young children and give them
a chance to experience true
holiday joy.
The sixth annual Shop With
a Cop program, which began
by serving 43 deserving
children in its inaugural year,
allowed 153 children from all
five of Bradford County's
elementary schools to select
approximately $100 worth of
gifts for themselves, family

and friends. Many children
made sure they got the super
gifts they wanted-the kind
you ask Santa to bring you-
whether they were this year's
hottest toy or a bicycle, but
many also had others in mind
when browsing the aisles.
Dakota Rosier, a Lawtey
Community School student,
proudly showed off the bird
decoys he was getting for his
grandfather, who loves to hunt.
Mya Kamienowski, a
Southside Elementary student,
was selecting a few items for
her pet, Layla, to-enjoy.
"It's just amazing," said
Department of Transportation
Sgt. Tom Bowen, who was
participating in the event for
the third year.
A $1,000 community grant
from Wal-Mart helped get the
event started in 2005. A
generous spirit of giving from
various individuals and
businesses, along with Wal-

Mart's continued support, have
allowed the program to grow
and serve more children each
successive year.
"It's definitely an Adrenalin
rush to see it, experience it and
be a part of it," said Brian
Jackson, the Starke Wal-Mart
Of course, Shop with a Cop
wouldn't exist without "cops,"
who proved to be just as
excited as the wide-eyed
children they were shopping
"You can't wait to meet the
child for the first time," Bowen
Lt. Kevin Blom of the
Florida Highway Patrol, who,
like Bowen, was participating
for the third year in Shop with
a Cop, said troopers fit this
mold of being stoic and not
caring, but he swore he caught
a glimpse of a tear in a
trooper's eye.
"Every one of them said
they wanted to come back (for
next year's event)," Blom said.
Starke Police Department
Officer Amanda Wallace said
she would definitely
participate again. She was
excited this year about
participating for the first time
ever. Wallace was paired with
a child who came with a list of
items. Even though the child
made sure she bought things
for her brother as well, she was

shopping to do after getting
everything on her list.
"She was able to get more
than what she wanted,"
Wallace said. "She was pretty
Blom said if the event
doesn't touch the hearts of
those participating, nothing

will. It has sure touched
Bowen's heart. He remembers
the first year he participated.
The child he escorted would
not pick out any items for
himself. He would only select
gifts for his brothers, sisters
and grandmother. Bowen said
"Plan B" was put into effect to
make sure the child left with

something for himself.
"It's just amazing," Bowen
said of the selfless behavior
many-of the children exhibit.
Bowen has had different
experiences each year of his
participation. One year, the
child he escorted went back

Arc consumers put construction skills to use to build doll houses

Regional News/Sports Editor
The Arc of Bradford County
is no different from many
homes and businesses this time
ofl \ear as a Christmas village
is on display on the premises.
Those who are serviced by

the Arc take a special pride in
their village as it is one crafted
by their own hands, thanks to a
desire to work by the
consumers and a desire to
teach by the Bradford-Union
Area Career Technical
Center's Don Thompson.

M erry Christmas

The Arc's Christmas village
is composed of doll houses
constructed by Arc consumers.
Thompson began working with
the consumers last year,
instructing, them-on the use of
tools and how to construct the
houses to code just as if they

were real homes.
Since the houses are built
using small components,
consumers mainly use
handsaws. Thompson sets up
sawing stations where
consumers produce such items
as headers, trimmers and
double studs.
Those pieces are then placed
in racks for assembly.
"It's almost like trailer
manufacturing," Thompson
Many of .the consumers
build doll houses for their own
use or with the intent of giving
them to someone specifically.
However, production could
evolve into something bigger.
"We definitely are looking
to develop a market for these,"
said Sherry Ruszkowski, the
executive director of the Arc
of Bradford County.
If anyone is interested in
purchasing a doll house, please
call the Arc of Bradford
County at 904-964-7699 and
ask for Thompson.
Thompson has said his goal
is to have the houses available
for sale via a Web site one day.

SHowever, because of the
training and the passion of Brad-

the surrounding counties, the
sawmill was saved. We had no

We are so grateful and feel so
blessed that no one was injured
in this fierce fire, that we did not
lose our mill, and no jobs were
lost. We were deeply touched by
the love and comfort given to us

"We're missing you at
Christmas time when the world
is filled with cheer, As families
gather to celebrate and hold
their loved ones dear. We face
each day with a sadness, a deep
heaviness of heart made worse
by all the cheeriness in which
the world is taking part. When
nightfall comes and lights
aglow in sparkling colored
array. And shoppers scurry with
packages meant for loved ones
on Christmas Day. Our hearts
feel aching loneliness that this
year you won't be near,-and we
find ourselves returning to
Christmases past when this
emptiness wasn't here."

Spending Christmas With Jesus

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below.
With tiny lights like heaven's stars reflecting in the snow. The
sight is so spectacular. Please wipe away that tear for I am
spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
but earthly music can't compare with the Christmas choir up
here. I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring,
for it's beyond description to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me, trust God and have no fear,
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. I
can't tell you of the.splendor or the peace here in this place.
Can you imagine Cfiristmas with our Savior face to face?
May God uplift your spirit as I tell him of your love then pray
for one another as you lift your eyes above, So. let your hearts
be joyful and let your spirits sing for I am sending
Christmas in Heaven and I amwalking with the King.

for what you've got," Bowen
One of Blom's joys of
participating is witnessing how
respectful and appreciative the
children are. This year was no

wanted to get." The boy didn't
know whetherhe should begin
selecting items for himself or
start with gifts for family
S"I had to explain to him it

answer? A bicycle.
She was allowed to get that
