Starke man


arrested with child

A Starke man was arrested Feb.
28 by Bradford County Sheriff's
Office Investigator Gall Russell
after the completion of an inter-
state investigation prompted by
an alert from the National Center
for Missing and.Exploited Chil-
dren.
The center provides a means
t6 receive tips from individuals
and research Internet activity
that might be related to adults
exploiting children. In August,
the center notified Detective
T. Abdullah in Prince William
County, Va., that a child in his
jurisdiction was possibly be-
ing exploited. Abdullah, who is
in charge of the Prince William
County Internet Crimes Against
Children Unit, investigated the
tip.
Abdullah found that the 15-
year-old male victim had used a
cellular phone to enter an Inter-
net chat room and had multiple
conversations with a person who
had a Florida cell phone number.
The Florida cell phone owner
had convinced the victim to take
nude photographs of himself and
e-mail them to the Florida phone.
The child took and sent approxi-
mately 20 photos of himself.
The extensive investiga-
tion eventually led Abdullah to
Starke.
Abdullah's initial investiga-
tion showed that the Florida cell
phone owner had paid for addi-

tional cell phone minutes for the
Virginia victim's prepaid cell
phone-so the two could stay in
contact.
The Florida man also alleg-
edly provided a Visa card num-
ber to the Virginia victim so that
he could purchase additional.
minutes. The victim was unable
to use the number without addi-
tional information, however, and
eventually ran out of minutes.
When the victim stopped con-
tacting the Florida man, the man
wrote to the Virginia child. The
letter had a return address in
Starke, which led Abdullah to

Federal government slashing funding to states, more cuts coming


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN

Times Editor
To keep the government op-
erating over the next two weeks,
the House Appropriations Com-
mittee released a short term Con-
tinuing Resolution (CR) on Feb.
25.
The CR, which includes $4
billion in spending cuts, will
prevent a government-wide shut
down that would occur on March
4 if no agreement between the
House, Senate and White House
is reached on a longer-term fund-
ing bill.
The CR contains funding to al-
low all government agencies and
programs to continue operating
at the current level of spending
until March 18, except for sev-
dral programs that will be termi-
nated or cut.
Appropriations Chairman Hal
Rogers said, "A government
shutdown would halt critical and


necessary services and programs
that Americans across the coun-
try rely on, and it is not reflective
of the kind of leadership that the
American people expect or de-
serve of their representatives in
Congress."
Rogers added that he would
have greatly preferred that the
Senate act on legislation that the
House passed last week-which
saves the taxpayers $100 billion
compared to the president's re-
quest, however, it was clear that
more time was needed.
Congressman Ander Cren-
,shaw (R-Fla.) voted in favor of
the $100 billion in spending cuts
and said he considered it a bold
and necessary response to these
tough economic times.
"Capitol Hill looked in the
mirror and made the same diffi-
cult choices with its money that
Americans make with theirs ev-
ery day, and I commend Appro-
priations Committee Chairman


Hal Rogers for bringing the bill
to passage," said Crenshaw.
In a written statement, Cren-
shaw stated that with exploding
debt and record unemployment,
Congress does not deserve a spe-
cial exception.
"The choices have been dif-
ficult, but we can do a whole
lot more with a whole 1lt less. I
know it, and the American peo-
ple know it," he wrote.
Congressman Crenshaw's mo-
bile office hours include a stop
in Union County on Wednesday,
March 9, from 10 a.m.-noon at
Lake Butler City Hall.
Program funding cuts
The Continuing Resolution
terminates funding for eight pro-
grams. This amounts to $1.24
billion in cuts, mostly for educa-
tion programs. Those programs
are as follows.
$50'million for the U.S. De-
partment of Education's Striv-
ing Readers program. This tcr-


mination was requested in the
president's' budget request. This
program has a large amount of
unused funds, and is said to be
duplicative of the Title 1 pro-
gram that provides $14 billion
annually in reading assistance to
at-risk students.
$64 million for the U.S. De-


apartment of Education's LEAP
program. This termination was
also requested in the president's
budget request. This program ac-
complished its original objective
of stimulating all states to es-
tablish need-based student grant
programs and federal aid is no
longer required.


$66 million for the U.S. De-
partment of Education's Even
Start program. This termination
was requested in the president's
budget request. Three national
evaluations found that program
participants were not making

greater literacy gains than non-
participants. The Office of Man-
agement and Budget has identi-
fied this progratit as ineffective.
$88 million for the U.S. De-
partment of Education's Smaller
Learning Communities. This
termination was requested in the
president's budget request. Both
governmental and non-govern-
mental research has shown no
evidence that creating smaller
learning communities within
high schools makes a difference
in academic achievement.
$29 million for Broadband
Direct Loan Subsidy (U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture). No
funds were requested for this
program in the president's bud-
get request. This program is a
duplicate of several other federal
programs. The Agriculture In-
spector General has uncovered
abuses and inconsistencies in the
program as well as a lack of fo-
cus on the rural communities it is
intended to serve.
$75 million for Election As-
sistance Grants. This termination
was requested in the president's
budget request. The states have
yet to spend large amounts of
funding provided by this pro-
gram, and both the House and
Senate proposed eliminating the
program last year.
$30 million for the Smith-
sonian Institution Legacy Fund.
No funds were requested for
this program in the president's
budget request. The fund was in-
tended as a one-time only appro-
priation for revitalization of the
Smithsonian's Arts and Indus-
tries Building. Sufficient private
contributions were raised and the
monies were released in Decem-
ber of 2010.
$650 million in additional
general fund spending for the

tion. No funds were requested

request. In fiscal year 2010, this

ing addition was provided and

tigators were able to identify
the Florida cell phone owner as
Rhymer Rhuebin Howell, 59, of
Starke.
Investigator Russell contacted
Howell, who allegedly admit-
ted to having approximately 200
pornographic photos of children
stored on his phone. He was
charged March I with obscene
communication with a minor.
Other charges are pending fur-
ther investigation. Bond was set
at $100,000 and he remained in
the Bradford County Jail as of
press time.
According to the arrest report,
Howell has a prior conviction for
sexual battery on a male child un-
der the age of 11. Howell is not
listed as a registered sex offender
because his conviction occurred
before those registration require-
ments went into effect.
The National Center for Miss-
ing and Exploited Children's
mission is to help prevent child
abduction and sexual exploita-
tion; help find missing children;
and assist victims of child abduc-
tion and sexual exploitation, and
their families.
Headquartered in Alexandria,
Va., NCMEC was created in
1984 as a private, nonprofit or-
ganization to provide services
for families and professionals in
the prevention of abducted, en-
dangered, and sexually exploited
children. NCMEC is mandated
by Congress and works in coop-
eration with the U.S. Department
of Justice's Office of Juvenile
Justice and Delinquency Preven-
tion.
NCMEC has assisted law
enforcement personnel with
174,242 missing child cases,
resulting in the recovery of
160,419 children. It has trained
286,540 law enforcement offi-


cers and other professionals and
has handled more than 995,000
reports of child sexual exploita-
tion through its CyberTipline.
NCMEC has also handled more
than 2.5 million telephone calls
through its national toll-free ho-
tline, 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-
843-5678). NCMEC's Web site,

LB discusses purchases


City adds a part-
time position
BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

During the Feb. 14 meeting of
the Lake Butler city commission,
a new part-time job for a pur-
chasing agent was created. After
a brief discussion on whether or
not the city really needs a pur-
chasing agent, the issue was ap-
proved by a vote of 3-0 by Vice
Mayor Lonnie Norman and com-
missioners Scott Cason and Fred
Sirmones. Commissioner Le-
Roy Stalvey and Mayor Jimmy
Bealsey were absent from the
meeting.
The purchasing agent job pays
$12.44 per hour and requires 8-
10 years of purchasing, bidding,
contract negotiation and leasing
experience as well as familiarity
with blanket, limited and regu-
lar purchase orders. Experience
in government purchasing is
preferred. Job applications are
beingaccepted through Florida
Crown Workforce.
City Manager Dave Mecusker
has suggested modernizing the
city's Web site. Commissioners
were given a detailed proposal
from E-City Services for creat-
ing a new Web site. The proposal
included a one-time implemen-
tation fee of $1,250 and regular
quarterly fees of $450. After a
brief discussion, commission-
ers requested Mecusker get ad-
ditional proposals from similar
companies.
Mecusker also suggested the
city purchase a new truck for the
water meter reader, saying that
two city trucks are getting be-
tween 4-8 mpg and need to be re-
placed. The item was tabled until
the next meeting.
Next, Mecusker discussed life
insurance benefits for volunteer
firefighters. Mecusker said the
current policy maintained by the
city covers the volunteers only if
they die while working a fire.
Lake Butler Volunteer Fire
Chief Michael Banks spoke on
behalf of the department and, as
an example, he said that statistics
show 75 percent of all firefighters
die from heart attacks. It would
cost the city $8 a month per vol-
unteer firefighter for $15,000
in coverage including a double
indemnity for accidental death.
Mecusker said the requirements
to be on the policy would be that
the volunteer attend no less than
six fire drills per quarter, 50 per-
cent of the training sessions and


Sixth grade top Tropicana speech writers were Jordan Snyder (third place), Maggie
Parrish (first place) and Falyn Rimes (second place).


Top 6th grade speeches given


Lake Butler Middle School has
announced the names of the top
three sixth-grade students in the
school-wide Tropicana Speech
contest.
Winning first place was Mag-


gie Parrish, followed by Falyn
Rimes in second and Jordan Sny-
der in third. Tyler White, Saman-
tia Cruz and Alyssa Bivins were
listed as honorable mentions.
On Saturday, March 12,


these sixth-graders will com-
pete against other students in the
countywide Tropicana Public
Speaking contest, held during
Union County 4-H Events.

Reigning state champ denies Tornadoes trip to state


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Cameron Coffee's shooting
touch sparked visiting
Tallahassee Rickards in the
second quarter, while Chris
Bryant and Jakari Bush
combined for 27 second-half
points as the Raiders claimed
the Region 1-Class 3A
championship by defeating the
Bradford boys' basketball
team 65-49 on Feb. 26.
Bradford (24-8) was seeking
its first trip to the state
semifinals since 1974, but led
only once when Chris Walton
made a 3-pointer to open the
second quarter to put the


Tornadoes up 9-6. Rickards,
which faced Fort Lauderdale
Pine Crest in the a state
semifinal gameon March 2,
scored the next nine points-
all on 3-pointers by Coffee.
Coffee, who made five 3-
pointers overall, connected
from long range once more in
the quarter as the Raiders (23-
7 prior to March 2) took a 22-
15 lead into the half.
The Tornadoes would close
the gap to five briefly at the
start of the third quarter, but
missed shots and missed
opportunities at the foul line
hurt as Rickards took a 16-
point lead into the fourth


k


quarter.
"I thought we played again
an experienced team
Bradford head coach Traav
Chandler said. "They're th
defending .state champs. The
know how to win."
Chandler said it came dow
to his team giving such
talented team too man
attempts at the foul line.
"I thought we were rigl
there in the mix," Chandl
said. "We just kind of set
them to the free-throw line to
much in the second half. Yo
can't give a team like that s
many free points. It came bac
to bite us in the end."
Rickards did not attempt
single free throw in the fir
half, but had 23 attempts in th
second half, making I1
Bradford actually went 14-o
23 from the line as well, bi
the difference was the Raider
made 12 of their first 1
attempts, while the Tornadoe
went 3-of-9 in the first there
quarters.
"We went to the line an
missed," Chandler said. "The
went to the line and mac
them."

as each team scored six point

Derail the boondoggle train



before it leaves the station


It isn't the greatest
boondoggle Florida residents
have ever seen; the Florida
cross-state canal holds that
honor, seconded only by the
attempted destruction of the
Everglades by greedy people
who should have known better.
I'm talking about the high-
speed rail system, proposed to
run between Tampa and
Orlando, for which
Washington has pledged $2.4
billion to throw down the rat
hole. And that is only the
beginning.
Gov. Rick Scott has told
Washington, "Thanks, but no
thanks," because the cost
overruns will accrue to the
state of Florida, and there will
be cost overruns without a
doubt. There will also be
continuing operating costs into
eternity of many millions of
dollars a year. Rarely ever do
projects of this size and
substance come in under
budget. It is the nature of the
beast, especially in
constructing government
projects and in view of the
length of time in building.
Plans simply change, always at
added cost.
Proponents of the ill-advised
plan are already plotting a new
ploy to remove any overrun
liability from the state. The
plan' provides for towns along
the route to band, together,
forming a corporation to
underwrite unexpected
liability. Can anyone see


mayors and councilmen giving
Washington carte-blanche
authority to raid their bank
accounts? That dog won't
hunt. What advantage is it to
towns and communities along
the line to have a train whiz by
at 220 miles or more per hour?
Proponents interested in the
long-term success of the rail
line base estimated revenues
on people riding the train, but
just who is going to utilize the
high-speed train, other that
riding it once for the thrill?
First off, in the interest of
saving' time, the train will not
be able to stop at each local
station. That would nullify the
high-speed concept. The route
will adhere to the 1-4 corridor,
with Lakeland being the only
population center large enough
.to justify a stopping point,,with
terminals at either end.

How many trains will run
the track each day? It depends
on several variables. A single
track will allow only a limited
number of trains, but quite
likely, only a limited number
will be needed. Passengers will
be drawn from two groups-
Tampa Bay area residents and
tourists, neither of whom will
likely abandon the family car
to ride the train after a one-
time experience.
When we cross one of three
high-rise bridges that were
built in expectation of
spanning a cross-state canal,
we are reminded that


politicians make some terrible
blunders, and we tax payers.
remain to pay the bill. Gov.
Scott is attempting to save us
from 'ourselves by blocking a
very expensive project that has
very little (if any) saving
virtues by people who look to
profit from the venture, even
though it fails to function as
envisioned. Visionaries have
read about the high-speed
trains in France and Japan, and
have gotten stars in their
collective eyes. Central Florida
is a far cry from either of the
two nations. Having fast trains
and the short distance of 84
miles between Tampa and
Orlando does not justify the
expenditures of public money.
Gov. Scott campaigned on
the promise to squeeze some
of the fat out of the Florida
budget, but, of course, his
remarks were taken as political
fodder and not taken seriously.
People have come to take
campaign rhetoric as...well,
campaign talk, but Scott was
serious and people have been
caught by surprise.
Some of the economies
effected by Gov. Scott may
pinch each of us, but belt
tightening is the rule of the day
since the nation can no longer
afford the excesses of the past.
A new day is dawning in
America, and we may as well
embrace it. It is here to stay.

Dear Editor:
Last night at the Biggest
Loser meeting, Eddie HaW Jr., a
certified life coach, spoke to us


a6out "the motivational factor."
He told us most of us want
change because: I) We are try-
ing to solve a problem; or 2T-we
are trying to get rid of an un-
wanted situation.
We discussed the predictable
cycle: I) emotional conflict
leads us to act; 2) because we've
acted, we feel better, even if the
situation hasn't changed much;
3) feeling better takes the pres-
sure off, lessening the emotional
conflict; 4) less emotional con-
flict means there is less reason
to continue doing the things that
reduced the conflict in the first
place; 5) since you feel better,
you no longer feel a pressing
need to follow through' on your
actions; 6) and the original prob-
lem returns.
This is how most of us diet.
Conflict-driven motivations the
major reason we "yo-yo" diet.
We have to learn to motivate
ourselves by focusing on what
we want, not what we don't
want.

Lake Area Tea

Party and Fair

Tax Patriots

meetings

announced
Dear, Editor:
To. concerned.citizens of our
area: The local Lake Area Tea
Party and Fair Tax Patriots wish
to announce that beginning in
the month of March, meetings
will be held twice a month. They
will be on the second and fourth
Tuesday at the Keystone
American Legion Post 202 at 7
p.m.
On March 22, we are fortu-
nate to have George Roberts,
ardent fair tax supporter, local
insurance businessman, and
former county commissioner,
speaking on what the fair tax
could mean for you, and ex-
plaining why many in the world
of finance are saying it could be
the answer to the financial crisis
our country is facing.
We are a friendly, dedicated
group that would like to invite
the public to come join us and
see for yourself what we're all
about. If you, too, have misgiv-
ings and are worried about
where some of our politicians
are taking this country, come see
what you can do to help. Let's
do our best to see to it that our
children and grandchildren have
a wonderful country to live and
grow up in like we did. We are
non-partisan. We endorse no
candidates. We ascribe to no
particular religion. We come and
we work because we care. How
about you? Will you help?

Don't bury your
head and ignore
our problems
Dear Editor:
Well, I have to say that I am
shocked at the Telegraph's criti-
cism of our county commis-
sioner and heaven forbid the
county tax assessor (he prefers
to be called property appraiser).
In my opinion. your article is
long past due. Had you been the

investigative newspaper that we
deserve, you would have been
looking into the overspending
and overtaxing of our tax asses-
sor and county commission long
before now. For over a year,
there have been property fore-
closures, work layoffs, business
closures and reduced business
incomes.
I have said this on a number
of occasions. The county com-
mission of Bradford County has
shown no concern about the
taxpayer of this county. Like the
gooney-bird, they have buried
their head in the bureaucracy of
local government, showing more
concern for the government than
for the taxpayer who is supposed
to own the government. Need-
less to.say, most of these people
have followed suit, burying their
heads in the concept of "leave
me alone." To those who try to
hide behind this concept, I say
this: Don't you realize that this
government, whether it's local,
county, state or federal, will
never leave you alone? Are we
too stupid not to realize that the

is to perpetuate his own exis-
tence? Part of that motivation is
to get the people we elect to
office in their back pocket and
where in the world is it done atiy
better than in this county? When
less than 50 percent of the tax-
payers vote, you don't have :a
chance to improve our existence
or for that matter, just maintain-
ing our present circumstance.
Now don't get ready to storn

l"e made baskets,"
Cha dler said. "We can't make
mistakes like that."
Covington made 1-of-2 free
throws at the 3:48 mark of the
second quarter to make it a
five-point game. Walton then
scored in transition, receiving
a pass from Tramaine Harris to
make the score 15-12.
Rickards scored seven of the
last 10 points of the quarter.
SDowdell scored off of a
rebound putback, while
-Bradford's Ya'keem Griner
answered by driving the


baseline, scoring and drawing
a foul. Griner's made free
throw made it 17-15.
Bryant scored off of Bush's
penetration, then rebounded a
missed 3-pointer by Bradford
at the other end.
Coffee's fourth 3-pointer of
the quarter sent the Raiders
into the locker room up by
seven.
Griner, who led Bradford
with 15 points, drove on
Bryant and scored to open the
third quarter, but Bryant
answered with a basket of his
own, a defensive rebound and
two free throws.
A rebound score and
subsequent free throw. by
Griner made the score 26-20,


which is as close as Bradford
would get the rest of the way.
Rickards scored the next five
points.
The Tornadoes had a chance
to cut into-the lead when they
cut it to eight after a basket by
Harris. Rickards turned the
ball over after failing to make
an inbounds pass against the
Bradford defense. The Raiders
were then whistled for an
intentional foul, setting up two
free throws and allowing the
Tornadoes to maintain
possession.
Bradford missed both free
throws, however, and turned
the ball over on the subsequent
possession.
Dowdell's rebound of a
missed free throw by Bryant
and .score put the Raiders up
by I1. Bryant later scored and
made a free throw to send the
Raiders into the fourth quarter
up 41-25.
The Tornadoes missed
another pair of free throws at
the end of the quarter as well
as misfiring on two 3-point
attempts.
Walton made a 3-pointer
early in the fourth, but it was
the only successful basket
from beyond the arc for
Bradford in its last eight
attempts.
A dunk by Griner off of his
own steal made the score 46-
33. Bradford forced a
backcourt turnover and got a
score from Deantre Burch to
cut the Rickards lead to 13
points.
Coffee, who' had not scored
since the second quarter, then
sanfk"his fifth 3-pointer of the
night.
Bush, who scored all 12 of
his points in the second half,
had five points to increase his
team's lead to 18, going 3-of-3
at the foul line and scoring a
basket.
Griner and McBride each
had a basket afterward, but the
most of the final 2:30
consisted of free throws, with
Bradford going 8-of-10 at the
line and Rickards going 4-of-
10.
Blye, who was 6-of-6 from
the foul line, finished with II
points. Walton added eight.
Coffee and Bush finished

Support of Bradford-area Boy


Scouts shown during banquet


Approximately 60
community leaders gathered at
the Starke Golf and Country
Club on Feb. 17 to hear an
update on ,the success of the
Boy Scouts of America
program in Bradford County.
The program included many
inspiring comments on how a
number of youth are being
shaped in a positive way by
participating in activities that
will develop the skills they
will need to succeed in life and
in business.
The dinner was opened with
a prayer by Pastor Mike Moore
of First United Methodist
Church and a flag ceremony
by Scouts from Troop 70,
which is chartered to the
Starke Rotary Club.

Lawtey man
charged in 2
incidences of
battery
Timothy Carl Holochwost,
45, of Lawtey was arrested
Feb. 22 by Bradford County
Sheriffs Office Deputy
Russell Gordon and charged
with felony domestic battery,
two counts of battery and one
count of false imprisonment.
According to police reports,
the victim alleged that
Holochwost had attacked her
and choked her during a
domestic altercation on Feb.
19. The victim filed a
complaint Feb. 21, but officers
could not contact Holochwost
at that time.
Later on Feb. 21,
Holochwost returned home
and allegedly choked the
victim a second time. He also
allegedly pushed a second
victim to the floor during the
incident.
When Deputy Russell
arrived, he found Holochwost
parked at the end of the
driveway. Holochwost
allegedly admitted that he had
parked his vehicle in that
location to prevent the victim
from leaving the residence.
Total bond on the charges
was set at $12,000 and
Holochwost was released on
bond Feb. 22.

in the third inning and got 12
strikeouts in a complete-game
outing from Kendall Norman
ir defeating Union County 10-
2 in a District 4-3A baseball
matchup on Feb. 28 in Lake

The win snapped a four-

Tornadoes (2-4).
Norman helped his team's
cause before he even took the
moypd, hitting a two-run
homer in the top of the first.
That 2-0 lead held until the
third inning, when the
Tornadoes took advantage of
five walks, three wild pitches
and one error to score seven
runs.
Ryan McKeown, who drew
a: walk in all three of his at-
bats, walked to lead off thetop
of the third and. moved to
second on Tyler Yowell's
second straight sacrifice bunt.


Norman reached on a walk
also before Bradford loaded
the bases on a single by Dylan
Manning.
McKeown scored on a wild
pitch with Austin Chipoletti at
bat. Chipoletti then hit a single
to push another run across,
making it a 4-0 game.
Jackson Eaves delivered an
RBI single right after
Chipoletti's, while Chipoletti
eventually scored on a wild
pitch. A Dylan Bradley single,
which was misplayed, allowed
Eaves to score.
A BJ. McNeal single and
walk by McKeown loaded the
bases again. Yowell drew a
walk to force a run home,
while McNeal scored the last
run of the inning on a wild
pitch.
Union (4-3) scored two runs
in the fourth. Dustin Hersey hit
a lead-off single, while Dalton
Cochran reached base on a
dropped third strike. Austin
Harden hit a single to bring
both runners home.
Bradford's McNeal drew his
second walk of the night to
lead off the top of the fifth. He
;eventually scored on a balk to
cap the scoring.
McNeal finished the game 2-
for-2, while Bradley was 2-for-


4. Norman was I-for-2, while
Chipoletti, Eaves and Manning
were each l-for-4.

with one out to drive in a run,
but Keystone ended the game
by turning a double play on a
ground ball hit by Brandon
Thomas.
Latner and Lott went 3-for-5
and 3-for-4, respectively,
while Julius was 2-for-5.
Stadnicki (2-0) struck out 10
and gave up just two walks in
earning the win.
The Tornadoes got one hit
each from Eaves, McNeal,
Norman, Thomas, Yowell and
Dylan Manning. Thomas hit a
double in the third with one
out, stole second and scored on
Ryan McKeown's ground ball
to second.
