Local man making his mark


in music, releases original CD


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

A former Union County
High School student released
his first full version CD on
Valentine's Day.

Singer-songwriter and pro-
ducer Justin Freeman, 28, at-
tended Union County High
School. He was raised on his
family's farm in Sanderson
and began playing the guitar
when he was eight years old.
His parents put him in guitar
lessons, but Freeman said he
gave it up after a year due to
boredom.

When he was 14 years old,
the county and pop musician
found his old guitar in the at-
tic and began re-learning the
basics on his own and with a
little help from friends.
After Freeman graduated
from high school in 2000, he
began writing songs. In ad-

Longtime school


board member


passes away


The governor must
appoint someone to
fulfill her remaining
21 months on
the board.
BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor
Leader, mentor, and an exam-
ple to all, were just some of the
words Superintendent Carlton
Faulk used to describe Sandra
Floyd, a woman especially com-
mitted to the students of Union
County.
Floyd, 65, a longtime Union
County School Board member,
passed away Feb. 11 following
a brief battle with cancer. At the
time of her death, she was serv-
ing her third term as District 4
school board member.
For 31 years, she worked
alongside her husband Freddie
Floyd as the secretary and book-
keeper at Howard Auto Parts un-
til Freddie's retirement in 2009.
She also served as treasurer
at Harmony Free Will Baptist
Church for the past 15 years.
Some of the accomplishments
of the school board during the
time Floyd served included the
board receiving Master Board
Certification in 2002 and the
district being granted accredita-
tion by the Southern Associa-
tion of Colleges and Schools in
2007. Union County was one of
the first 200 school districts to
achieve this distinction.
During her terms as a school
board member, she continued to
participate in training through the
Florida School Board Associa-
tion in the areas of legal issues,
law, finance, boardsmanship,
ethics and human resources.
During her re-election for a
third term in 2008, Floyd said,
"Union County schools have
highly qualified and dedicated
teachers, principals and admin-
istrators. Our non-instructional
personnel are efficient, dedicated
and take pride in their work. Our
students continue to excel in aca-
demics, extracurricular activities,
sports, band, FFA and cheerlead-
ing."
As the state began making
deep budget cuts to the educa-
tional system, Floyd said, "It
is the intent of the entire Union
County School Board and Super-
intendent Carlton Faulk to put
the education and needs, of our
students first."
Superintendent Faulk said
that Floyd was one of the best
school board members he had
ever worked with in the. past 32
years.
"If she was not at a school


Sandra Floyd


board meeting, she was at an
athletic event, a FFA contest, a
High-Q match, a band concert,
an open house or school-related
gathering of some kind," said
Faulk. "She too, was an asset and
supporter of the faculty and staff
of each school."
District 1 School Board Mem-
ber Allen Parrish, who worked
alongside Floyd for many years,
said the Union County School
District will truly miss her. When
he was a newly-elected school
board member, Floyd took him
under her wing and was a true
mentor to him.
"There was never any question
as to where Mrs. Floyd stood.
She always made her decisions
with a 'student first attitude,'"
said Parrish.
One of the things Parrish most
admired about Floyd was her
commitment to equality.
"During her years of service
on the school board, Mrs. Floyd
demonstrated that her priority
was making sure that EVERY
student had an opportunity to
succeed, regardless of social or
economic background. I will
always remember Mrs. Floyd's
example of service to Union
-County," Parrish said.
Floyd's school board work was
but a small portion of her life. Her
love of family, church and com-
munity filled her days and nights.
Possessing attributes which drew
others to her, Faulk said she was
an anchor to the community that
will not easily be replaced.
She is survived by: her hus-
band of 46 years, William A.
(Freddie) Floyd; their three
children Fred Floyd Jr., Christie
Floyd Perez, Dustin Eric Floyd;
and seven grandchildren.
"To the Floyd family, I thank
you for sharing Sandra with us
for all these years. She has been a
loyal friend and co-worker. Like
each of you, we too, will miss her
greatly," said Faulk.

Teacher of


the Year

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor


Julee Ricketson is Lake But-
ler Middle School's Teacher of
the Year. Ricketson has been
teaching exceptional student
education at the school for the
past eight years. She has teach-
ing certificates in not only ex-
ceptional student education for
grades K-12, but also in middle
grades integrated curriculum
for grades 5-9, health for grades
K-12 and she holds a reading
endorsement.
In college while pursuing a
degree in health science, Rick-
etson said she was given many
opportunities to make presenta-
tions at schools and other or-
ganizations. It was during this
time that she began to appreci-
ate the school atmosphere and
working with students.
"As my experiences led me
more and more into the class-
room, I realized that this was
the path I needed to take. As
each piece fell into place, I be-
lieved that God was calling me
into the field of teaching," she
said.
Ricketson's teaching phi-
losophy includes her belief that
every student has the potential
for success. When asked what
she loves most about her job,
she said that each day presents
her with new challenges and
new successes.
"Student success drive me to
continue. It is rewarding when
students are able to learn diffi-
cult concepts. When I reach a
student thathas been deemed
as unteachable or unreach-
able, it is truly worth the hard
work," said Ricketson. "Work-
ing with students with special
needs gives me the opportunity

to make a positive impact, and
it gives me a great sense of ac-
complishment," she said.
Ricketson realizes that each
of her students is individual in
their thinking and their abilities.
With this in mind, she differen-
tiates her instruction to meet
their needs, incorporating their
interests and strengths into the
curriculum.

She said using each student's
background knowledge and
helping to make connections
with real-world applications
has allowed her students to take
ownership of their learning.
She maintains that she has
high expectations for her stu-
dents not only academically,
but also behaviorally, follow-
ing a very structured classroom
routine each day.
"I strive to build a sense of
community in my classroom by
helping them getting along with
their peers, as well as to excel
personally," Ricketson said.

Clay Electric sends refunds


Clay Electric Cooperative's
board of trustees has announced
a $5 million Capital Credits re-
fund to entitled members of the
co-op who received service be-
tween 1986 and 2009.
General Manager/CEO Ricky
Davis said the trustees consid-
ered a variety of financial and
economic conditions before de-
ciding to make the refund. This
will be the cooperative's 37th
consecutive refund of Capital


Credits.
Clay Electric is a nonprofit
cooperative, so any profits (mar-
gins) left over at the end of the
year after expenses are paid are
assigned to members on a pro-
rata basis, to be refunded at a
later date as Capital Credits. Last
year, the co-op refunded $5 mil-
lion in Capital Credits to entitled
members. These refunds help
offset the cost of power fo mem-
bers of the cooperative.

This event first began last

The menu consisted of pork

much, much more.

is a tangible and unique benefit
of receiving service from a non-

margins left over after expenses
are paid return these funds to
stockholders as dividends. Mu-

Capital Credits are a source

to reduce the amount of money

COOK
Continued from Page 6A
grilling tools to give the chef
plenty of clearance from heat and
flames when cooking food.
Periodically remove grease
or fat buildup in trays below the
grill so it cannot be ignited by a
hot grill.
Use grills outdoors only! If
used indoors, or in any enclosed
space, such as tents, barbecue
grills pose both a fire hazard and
the risk of exposing occupants to
carbon monoxide.
Charcoal grills
Purchase the proper starter
fluid and store it out of reach
of children and away from heat
sources.
Never add charcoal starter flu-
id when coals or kindling have
already been ignited, and never
use any flammable or combus-
tible liquid other than charcoal
starter fluid to get the fire going.
Propane grills
Check the propane cylinder
hose for leaks before using it for
the first time each year. A light
soap and water solution applied
to the hose will reveal escaping
propane quickly by releasing
bubbles.
If you determined your grill


has a gas leak by smell or the
soapy bubble test and'there is no
flame, then turn off the propane
tank and grill.
If the leak stops, get the grill
serviced by a professional before
using it again.
If the leak does not stop, call
the fire department.
If you smell gas while cook-
ing, immediately get away from
the grill and call the fire depart-
ment. Do not attempt to move the
grill.
All propane cylinders manu-
factured after April 2002 must
have overfill protection devices
(OPD). OPDs shut off the flow
of propane before capacity is
reached, limiting the potential
for release of propane gas if the
cylinder heats up. OPDs are eas-
ily identified by their triangular-
shaped hand wheel.
Use only equipment bearing
the mark of an independent test-
ing laboratory. Follow the manu-
facturers' instructions on how to
set up the grill and maintain it.
Never store .propane cylinders
in buildings or garages. If you
store a gas grill inside during the
winter, disconnect the cylinder
and leave it outside.

The Bradford boys' basketball team captured the District 4-3A championship with a
win over West Nassau. Pictured are: (front, I-r) Nick Johnson, Tramaine Harris,
Chris Walton, Deion Aldridge, Lyndell Hampton, Darrin Blye, Bryan Blackshear,
Brian Walton, (back, I-r) Ya'keem Griner, Justin McBride, Deantre Burch, Treyonte
Covington and Keaaris Ardley.


Bradford turnover to get the
run started, while Brady Price
drained a 3-pointer following
his own steal.
A layup by the Warriors'
Keith George, who led all
scorers with 28 points, put his
team up 48-46, but Bradford's
Justin McBride put an end to
the run with a basket off of an
assist by Harris. McBride, with
the exception of Harris' 3-
pointer, had all of the-
Tornadoes' points in the-third
quarter. He scored eight,
including two free throws with
41 seconds left in the quarter
to put Bradford up 54-52.
McCullers drove the lane for
a basket that tied the score
heading into the fourth quarter.
"I thought our guys might
have been a little tired from
(the previous night's game),"
Chandler said. "I thought


(West Nassau) played a lot
harder than we dl. That's why
it was such a dogfight."
It was a \one-point game
when Walton made a 3-pointer
off of an inbounds pass. He
then drained another long-
distance shot to put the
Tornadoes up 63-56.
"He struggled a bit at times,
but he hit some big 3-point
shots and came through for
us," Chandler said. "I'm
definitely proud of him."
The Tornadoes got nine
points .from Blye and six
points from Aldridge the rest
of the way to maintain their'
lead.
Aldridge, who saw
significant playing time
because of Ya'keem Griner's
foul trouble, came up big,
finishing with 13 points and
eight rebounds.


Chandler said Aldridge was
the player of the game and
hopes his contribution is a sign
of things to come for a team
looking to get more help from
its bench now that the regional
playoffs have begun.
"He brought a ton of
energy," Blye said. "It was
definitely what we needed at
the time. When the game was
close,-he came in and gave us
easy baskets and rebounded."
Aldridge was one of five
Bradford players to finish in
double digits in points. Blye
and McBride had 19 and 16
points, respectively, while
Griner and Walton had 14 and
10, respectively.
McBride had 12 rebounds
and 10 blocked shots, while
Griner had eight rebounds.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
It took a visitation of vision-
sharing spirits to cause
Ebenezer Scrooge to turn from
his miserly ways and embrace
happiness and his fellow man,
but the support the Bradford
Ecumenical Ministries Food
Pantry received this past
December needed no such
spiritual intervention-
Bradford County showed
tremendous support of the
Food Pantry all year long.
Despite the fact that the
numbers of people served by
the Food Pantry increase every
year, the community has
enabled the organization and
its strictly volunteer workers to
feed so many month after
month, and year after year.
That support enabled the Food
Pantry to feed 1,661 people
this past December, which was
the highest number of people
for 2010.
However, more than 1,000
people were fed during a total
of seven months last year. The
overall number fed for the year
was 13,590-a record that
eclipsed the 2009 total of
11,586.
"There's no way the
volunteers can do that kind of
feeding the people without
total community support," said
Arley McRae, the director of
the Food Pantry. "We've got
that. We're so blessed to have
that."
There are the businesses and
churches that are such
consistent supporters that the

People line up to receive meals at the Bradford Food Pantry during the week lead- .,
ing up to Christmas.


Food Pantry's budget is
planned around their
donations. There is a church in
Graham that recently learned
of the Food Pantry and now
sends monetary. donations
monthly. There are the service
organizations, school groups
and others that hold food
drives or make monetary
donations. There are the local
media outlets that publicize the
Food Pantry's efforts and keep
the public aware of the need
that is out there.
Then there are the people
who give support in the form
of their time and labor. McRae
said the Food Pantry's
volunteers are "the backbone
qf the whole thing."
"If -we didn't have any
volunteers, we couldn't do


this," McRae said. "Nobody receiving a paycheck,
gets paid."

those who volunteer do receive
a payment of sorts-the
gratification that comes with
knowing one has done his or
her part to make someone's
life just a little bit easier.
"It's extremely gratifying to
be able to feed people,"
McRae said.
The Food Pantry, which is
located at 321 W. Andrew St.
(across from Powell's on U.S.
301), fed 2,301 people in
1989-its inaugural year of
operation. During the 10 years
that followed, the numbers
mainly stayed below 3,000
with the exception of 1991
(3,176 fed), 1992 (4,401) and
1993 (3,464).
Beginning in 1998, the
number of people fed has risen
every year, from 2,362 to last
year's 13,590.
The numbers are sobering at
face value. What McRae finds
even more sobering is the fact
that if you take the people who
are incarcerated in prison out
of the equation, there are
approximately 25,000 people
in Bradford County. That
means the Food Pantry is now
feeding more than half of the

There are repeat customers,
of course, included in the
numbers, but McRae said the
numbers-are still sobering
since a person's access to food
is limited to every three
months.
Approximately 1200 people
were fed full Thanksgiving
meals by the Food Pantry this
year during the three days
leading up to Thanksgiving.
McRae said it was the first
time the Food Pantry had fed
people en masse, and it, like
the Food Pantry's efforts
throughout the year, couldn't
have been done without the
support of the community. One
church donated 550 pounds of
food and 20 turkeys. Another


years, Rogers has been very
generous with his time and
talent in raising funds for the
Food Pantry.

We would like to thank the

Bear Bryan, Cheryl Canova, and
their volunteers for a wonderful
first annual bicycle ride. The
route was very nice and showed
the beautiful country of Brad-
ford. The rest stops had great
snacks and w6re staffed by
wonderful volunteers. The bar-
becue lunch for the riders at the
end of the ride was delicious.
Many riders came from out of
town and were impressed with
the event.
Congratulations on a very
successful bicycle ride. We ap-
preciate your efforts to help

ceed with their college dreams.

ion County School Resource
Officer Deputy Crews for their
efforts and quick response on
Friday, 'Feb. 11, when my

often, people take- for- granted
and fail to acknowledge the
works of another. I want to take
this opportunity to commend
these individuals for their dili-
gence and thoroughness in in-
vestigating this matter and their
Aelication and commitment to
provide a safe and secure envi-
ronment for our students. They
truly went above and beyond the
'call of duty and I am grateful for
each of them. Union County is
very fortunate to have these re-
markable staff members em-

Week 6 and still
losing
Dear Editor:
Week 6 of the Biggest Loser
contest at Mind and Body Fit-
ness gym: The last two weeks
were intense workouts that left
us tired and sore. Debbie Law-
rence surprised the group with
Valentine's healthy snacks.
After weighing in, we-
munched on: fresh melon
wrapped in prosciutto, okra and
low-fat cream cheese wraps,
mixed nuts and fresh local
strawberries dipped in. dark
chocolate. All were delicious.
As a group, we have lost over
140 pounds in six weeks. On a
personal level, I lost four pounds
this week for a total of 36
pounds. Working out in the gym
five days a week combined with
a healthy diet; I feel great! My
energy level is up and food in-
take is down. Not experiencing
cravings is a big plus. I am be-
ginning to discover that healthy
food can taste just as satisfying.
Root vegetables (carrots, tur-
nips, rutabagas and parsnips)
have been especially good this
winter. I've explored new foods
to prepare and serve. Each bite
of every meak has beenfenj-
able. This week, we will pass
our halfway point. Looking for-
-ward to week seven!

She contacted the gioup,

The convention impressed
Jones in that no one seemed to
be a stranger.
"You walk in, and

On her way home after the
convention, Jones told her

within a 50-mile radius of Clay
and Duval counties," Jones
said. "We had our first meeting
in May 2009."
The group held its first
Christmas party last year,
which served as an opportunity
to share stories of Christmases
of years gone by.
Club members don't have to
wait until a Christmas party,


though, to talk about their life
experiences. One look around
the room at Cedar River during
the club's last meeting
confirmed that.
"They're a bunch of
talkers," Jones said.
When you've got something
to talk about, why not? They
not only met and married
American service personnel,
but in some cases they were
forbidden to associate with
Americans, though they did so
anyway.
Sometimes, it was simply
chance that brought them
together.
Club member Ivy
Hettenhausen, who is
originally from England, said
she and her husband started
dating after he lost a coin flip
with his brother. The two men
were at a dance and fancied the
young lady Hettenhausen was
with. They flipped a coin to
see which one would go after
her, while the loser would take
Hettenhausen home.
Hettenhausen confessed that
she wasn't even supposed to
be at the dance, and she
certainly wasn't supposed to
be associating with an
American. Those were her
father's orders.
"I was forbidden to go to a
dance, and I was forbidden to
talk to Yanks," she said.
What made it even worse
was the last name of the man
who would eventually become
her husband. Hettenhausen
said her father never stopped
fighting World War I-a war
that claimed the lives of two
brothers-and he had no love
for Germans. Therefore, when
he found out the Yank who
was hanging out with his
daughter had the name
"Hettenhausen," he wasn't
happy.
"He said, 'He's a German.
You are not to see him
anymore,'" Hettenhausen said.
Hettenhausen said her

band, Joe, enjoy a laugh at the chapter's January
meeting.


mother loved her Yank, but her
father just couldn't get past the
name. The young man
eventually made an impression
on his future father-in-law.
"He started bringing my
father cartons of cigarettes and
started calling him, 'Sir,' and
won him over," Hettenhausen
said.
There was a bit of chance
involved in club member Joyce
Bell meeting the man she
would marry. Like
Hettenhausen, she grew up in
England and was not supposed

Bradford High School senior Kayla Tucker (second from right) received a scholar-
ship to play softball at Florida State College at Jacksonville. She is seated between
parents Trish and Chris Tucker. Her sister, Lindsey, is also pictured.


Bradford's Tucker to play


softball at Florida State College


BY CLIFF SMELLEY

She stepped into the starting
lineup as a freshman and
caught the eyes of college
coaches that same year as she
made plays in the annual
Kissimmee Klassic.
Now, Bradford High School
softball player Kayla Tucker
enters. her senior season
knowing she has a goal beyond
helping the Tornadoes win
games and compete for a
district title as she signed a
letter of intent accepting a
scholarship offer from Florida
State College at Jacksonville.
"I'm really excited," Tucker
said after a signing ceremony
held Feb. I1 in the BHS media
center. "I can't wait to get over
there and play."
SFirst, though, Tucker has

did come," she said, "but next

Cook made a dramatic
improvement as well,

three seasons.
"We lost our starting
shortstop the year before, so
we were looking for a
shortstop," Bradford head
coach Daniel Davis said. "She
came in right away, stepped in
that role and really took it
over, solidifying our infield as
a freshman."
Davis said Tucker's mobility
helps her make a wide range of
plays in the infield. At the
-plate, she can either lay down
a bunt or swing away, Davis
said. t
Those are the abilities
Tucker brought as a freshman.
Davis said over the last three
seasons, Tucker has honed
those skills and has become a
mature player in that she
doesn't have to rely on
coaches to tell her what to do
in any given situation.
"Everytime she goes to the

also jumped from a seventh-
place finish to third.
"It's just unbelievable what
she's done this year," Union
coach Brian Griffis said.
"She's finally buckled down
and started training hard. The
sky's the limit for her next
year. I see no problem, barring
injury, with her breaking all
the state records."
Cook, who already owns all
the school records in her class,
said, "This season was all
about trying my best and
trying to show people I've got
the skill to do it."
Though she and Boettcher
easily surpassed fourth-place
lifter Nicole Parker of Palatka,
who had a 375 total, Cook said
she envisioned placing either
fourth or fifth heading into the
finals.
"I thought maybe some girls
would jump up, especially
(Boettcher)," Cook said. "She
was a champion (last year),
and I thought she would get
it."
Boettcher and Cook both felt
they could've done slightly

plate, she can read the defense
and decide whether she needs
to bunt, slap or swing away,"
Davis said.. "She's kind of
taken on more responsibility
offensively."
Tucker's game has also
benefitted from playing on the
18-under Gainesville Gold
travel team. Davis said the
Gold is one of the top teams in
the state, and that experience
of playing with and against
players who are going to such
Division I schools as Floirda
should help Tucker make the
transition to college.
"She played second base and
some outfield for them, and
played some very high-level
softball," Davis said. "That
kind of gave her a taste of
what it's going to be like in
junior college. I .think she'll

which forced her to try for 200
pounds instead of 205 on her
third attempt.
"1 was hesitant to allow her
to lift 200 on her third clean
and jerk attempt after missing
195 on her second attempt,"
Keystone coach Scott
Brandow said, "but she
assured me she would get it.
She came' through on her
promise."
Cook said she thought she
could've performed better in
both the bench press and clean
and jerk.
"I know I could've gotten
200 on the clean and jerk, but
in the end, what I got I can
improve on," Cook said.
"That's what I'm going for
next year."
Bradford lifters Allison
Scott and Courtney Sexton
placed in the top 20 of their
respective classes. Scott placed
16' in the 119 class with a 220

placed 201h in the 129 class

Haley Tieken of Bradford

Senior Drew Reddish and
sophomore Philip James
qualified for the Florida High
School Athletic Association
Finals after each placed fourth
at the Region 1-Class 1A
wrestling finals at the Bolles
School in Jacksonville this past
weekend.
Nine Bradford wrestlers in
all competed, with six falling
one win shy of qualifying for
state.
"They all looked great,"
Bradford coach Chris Adams
said. "They went way above
my expectations."
A highlight for Reddish,
who wrestles in the 140-pound
class, was pinning a state
qualifier from last year in the
first period. He also lost a
hard-fought match that was
scoreless in the third period.
Reddish took his opponent
down, but the wrestler escaped
and took Reddish down in
what would be an eventual 3-2
loss.
"He wrestled great," Adams
said, adding, "It was his time
to go to state."
James, who wrestles in the
189-pound class, has two more
opportunities to go to state
after this season, but the first-
year wrestler got it done this
season. He battled a shoulder
injury he sustained in the
district- finals, which hindered
him in a second-round loss at
the regional finals. James iced
his shoulder down and
returned to pin three opponents
in a row, including a state
qualifier from last season he
took down in 30 seconds.

"He has a natural ability,"
Adams said, adding that James
should definitely win a state
title next year.
James and Reddish will
compete in the state finals,
which are scheduled for Friday
and Saturday, Feb. 18-19, at
the Lakeland Center.
Kevin Wright (119 class),
Chauncey Goodman (125),
Jarraid Forsyth (130), Devin
Paulk (145), Cody Hankerson
(160), Darris Gorden (215) and
Brent Kebby (heavyweight)
also wrestled for Bradford at
the region meet. Adams said
Wright and Hankerson each
wound up losing to multiple-
state qualifiers, with Wright
getting put out by a 7-4 loss
and Hankerson losing a 10-


point match that went to the
third period. Gorden lost a
tough, one-point match, while
Kebby, who doesn't normally
wrestle in the heavyweight
class, but did so. in the
regionals simply because he
filled in for an injured wrestler
at the district finals, put his
opponent on his back in-the
final 10 seconds of his final
match. Adams said Kebby
could've gotten a pin if he just
had a couple of more seconds..
Adams had hopes that Paulk,
a junior, would qualify for
state. Paulk missed out, but
lost his final match by only a
point to a state qualifier froni
last season.
Paulk can definitely compete
for and win a state title next
year, Adams said.

important in some respect whether he chooses to be
so or not.

PAID OBITUARY


Paul Hagel
KEYSTONE HEIGHTS-Paul
A. Hagel, 74, of Keystone
Heights, passed away on Feb. 1,
2011. at Shands UF in Gainesville
following and extended illness.
Mr. Hagel was born on Jan. 21,
1937, in Aberdeen, S.D., to the
late Anthony John and Beatrice
Henrietta Zock Hagel. Mr. Hagel
received his degree in architecture
from North,. Dakota State
University, and was employed
with Fad and Associates
Architectural Firm.
After moving to Gainesville in
1987, he became a season ticket
holder for the University of
Florida Gators and enjoyed
attending their football, basketball,
and baseball games. At the office
and at home, Paul was known for
his uncanny dry sense of humor.
One day he said he looked at that
beautiful duck in his scope and
just couldn't do it anymore.
His appreciation for the
wilderness went from duck
hunting trips with friends to
becoming an avid nature
photographer. A soft spot in his
heart opened and Paul began
finding peace in nature, his back
yard, and in caring for animals,
especially in later years, his
multitude of cats. He was also
known to spend endless hours
gardening and feeding the birds
(and squirrels!).
Paul had such a green thumb
that their yard in Keystone won
"Yard of the Month". Paul was
very instrumental in a variety of
areas with his architectural
experience. He had a hand in
designing the new emergency
room and cancer center at the
Shands University Hospital.
Since moving to Keystone
Heights, Paul would always be
studying and researching the Civil
War and World War II which led
him to become involved with
"Capt. Bob" and Wings of Dreams
at the Keystone Heights Air Park.
He enjoyed many long discussions
with Ralph about architecture and
restoration of old buildings and
spending most of the- day
"thinking" with his best friend
Richard in their sheds and yards.
Paul and his wife Chris formed
special bonds with their friends
and neighbors. Chris extends her
love and deepest appreciation to
their Florida family and friends:
Richard and Louvenia Addison,
"Miss June" Kennedy and Mom,
Cyndi, Dr. Denise Seufert and
staff at Butler Plaza Animal
Hospital, Freddie Robert and Flad
Architects, Captain Bob and
Susan, Drew and Christi Lambert,
and Paul's special "Bootsie"
Lambert. God bless you all. Also,
to the friends of Bill W. for the
past 26 plus years, in times of
need, it is nice to know you have a
place to go.
Paul is survived by:.his wife of
23 years, Chris; children, Marc,
Steve, Julie and Andrea;
stepchildren, Amy and Troy;
sisters, Midge and Marilyn; his
nine grandchildren, three great-
grandchildren, two step-
grandchildren, four nieces, and the
mother of his children.
A memorial mass will be held
on Thursday, Feb. 24, at II a.m.
in the St. William Catholic Church
with Father Mike Williams
officiating. As Paul would say,
"Let's blow this pop stand" and go
the parish hall for some eats
following the service. In lieu of
flowers, Paul would love for
contributions to the made to the
Humane Society of the United
States, 2100 L. St. NW,
Washington, DC 20037.
Arrangements are under the care
of Jones-Gallagher Funeral Home
Sof Keystone Heights..

'Many members of the local chapter of the World War II War Brides Association are
English natives, including (I-r) Joyce Bell, Pamela Guarino and Mary Tunison.


BRIDES
Continued from Page 7B

We'll get in trouble."
Despite her concerns, she
and her friend talked to the two
men, who would eventually
leave and pay for the ladies'
lunches.
Back at work, Bell and her
friend normally worked in the
store's office, but they would
fill in for the cashiers so they
could break for tea. It was
while they were filling in for
the cashiers that the two men
they met in the caf6 entered the
store, asking for a certain man
whom they were told they
could buy liquor from.
"One thing led to another,"
Bell said. "He wanted to take
me to a movie."
Blanche Dommer, another
War Bride from England,
admitted she didn't even like
her husband when she first met
him, but in time, "I got to sort
of like him." ,
"He was different," Dommer
said. "I like things that are
different.
"ye've been married 58
years."
To get married to women
abroad, American servicemen


had to get written permission
from their commanding
officers at least two months in
advance of the wedding. The
prospective brides had to be
interviewed by those
commanding officers.

"They literally got
interrogated by the U.S.
military before they were even
allowed to marry the men,"
said Geraldine "Gerri" Kohn,
the co-chair of the Northeast
Florida Chapter of the World
War II War Brides Association
whose mother moved' to the
U.S. from Liverpool, England,
after marrying an American
serviceman. "The priest even
did interrogations."
Kohn's mother, like many
like her, went to Tidworth
Transit Camp on Salisbury
Plain for assembly and
processing prior to traveling to
the United States. Conditions
at the camp were poor, with a
lack of facilities to provide
such things as laundry services
and hot water.
"I had a 6-month-old baby,"
Hettenhausen said. "They had
no place to put babies, so they
were giving us boxes to put the
babies in. The babies got sick.
"We were at the camp for


two weeks. Everybody was
getting sick."
The first official sailing of a
War Bride ship was Jan. 26,
1946. The SS Argentina sailed
from Southampton with 452
women on board.
Hettenhausen boarded a ship
in February, which was not an
ideal time to cross the ocean.
"We were hitting every
storm on the Atlantic," she
said. "It was terrible."
Dommer, who did not marry
her husband until 1952,
traveled to the U.S. at a later
date and did so with her
husband. They did not travel
by ship, but they had their bit
of trepidation as well. They
flew from Scotland to the
Azores, then left the Azores to
head to the States. Engine
trouble forced them back to the
Azores.
"There were two big planes
on each side (of the plane they
were traveling on)," Dommer
said. "They escorted us back to
the Azores.

"We took off again. Just as
we got to somewhere in
Massachussetts, I threw up.
I'm a good traveler, but the
plane was going dip, dip. I
don't know to this day how


long it took us to get from
England to the States."
Many of the War Brides,
though, traveled by themselves
or with young children. They
set out to begin their new lives,
but for some, the realization hit
that they were going to do so
in a strange land. Kohn said
her mother began crying upon
arriving to the U.S.
"Mom said she was fine
until she saw the Statue of
Liberty," Kohn said. "Then she
realized she was 3,000 miles
away from home."
Hettenhausen arrived with a
7-month-old boy. She was
supposed to meet her husband
in St. Louis.
"I was the only one in the
station who hadn't been picked
up," she said. "They had given
my husband the wrong date."
Bell's husband was waiting
for her on the right day of
arrival, though Bell said the
scene that awaited her and the
other War Brides was a little
overwhelming-a large group
of men the ladies had trouble
recognizing because they were
in civilian clothes rather than
in uniform.
"He found me right away,"
Bell said of her husband.
Bell found out about the
Northeast Florida Chapter of
the World War II War Brides
Association by reading one of
the announcements Jones has
been placing in area
newspapers. She has been
attending meetings for only a
couple of months, but she's
enjoying herself.
"It's interesting," she said.
"I'm a people person."
Hettenhausen's daughter
read about the group in the
newspaper as well, but
Hettenhausen said she had no
desire to go to a meeting. She
said her daughter dragged her
to her first. There,
Hettenhausen was pleasantly
surprised to talk to someone
from Liverpool. Someone else
she talked to lived 5 miles
from her hometown. One
person's brother came to the
States on the same ship
Hettenhausen said.


"It's like going back home,"
she said.
The local chapter of the
World War II War Brides
Association does more than
meet monthly and reminisce
about days gone by. The
chapter collected toys for the
Children's Home Society of
Florida-Buckner Division as
part of a Christmas project last
year. This year, with some
cooperation from Wal-Mart,
the chapter has another project
in which duffel bags will be
given to the Children's Home
Society of Florida children to
use to pack their belongings
when they are placed in foster
homes.
Another club project has
been to send care packages to
service personnel overseas, but
a problem with actually getting
those care packages to service
personnel has caused the group
to consider making care
packages for the children
served by the Childen's Home


Society of Florida.
If you are a foreign-born
War Bride-or War Groom-
from World War II up to the
present conflict, or a child or
grandchild of either a 'War
Bride or a War Groom, you are
invited to attend the Northeast'
Florida Chapter of the World
War II War Brides
Association's meetings on the
third Saturday of every month
at noon at Cedar River in
Middleburg. You just never
know what you might hear.
"It's funny to listen to all the
ways (the women) met their
husbands," Bell said. "I guess
we all have stories to tell."
For more information on the
local chapter, please call Jones
at 352-473-5450 or 904-472-
7191, or Kohn at 904-886-
9754. You may also log onto
the Web site
www.uswarbrides.com for
more information on the World"
War II War Brides Association
and the history of War Brides.,


Ivy Hettenhausen, accompanied by daughter Susan
Anderson, talks about how chance brought her and
her husband together in England.

won't have any issues with
