Upgrade to 911 will improve safety, response times


BY MARCIA MILLER
7 elegrph Stuff Writer

Advances in technology are
constantly making our lives easi-
er, but recent advances in the 911
technology serving Union Coun-
ty will also make our lives safer.
Union County's,9fl system
could already automatically lo-
cate a caller who was using a land
line or a cell phone for a voice
call. Even if the caller could not
speak, the 911 operator could
dispatch emergency personnel to


assist.
A recent upgrade to the hard-
ware and software in the system
now makes it possible for Union
County dispatchers to receive
text messages, photographs, vid-
eo or data from cell phones call-
ing the 911 system.
Why is that important? "Dur-
ing the Virginia Tech shootings
(in 2007), many students at-
tempted to text 911 rather than
calling and possibly giving away
their locations to the shooter,"
said Union County Sheriff Jerry


Whitehead. -But with no s stem
set up to receive those texts. the
texts were simply lost in the cel-
lular network. Imagine if not only
those texts. but also live stream-
ing video from cellular phones
could have gotten through."
Having more information on
the locations of both the shooter
and the victims could have made
a big difference to law enforce-
ment and rescue personnel re-
sponding to that emergency.
While local law enforcement
hopes that nothing like that in-


ciJent eser happens here. they
recognize the advantage a crime
or accident victimm might have in
being able to send a silent 911
message to summon help.
Whitehead oversees Union
Count- 911 services, which re-
ceied S259.480 from the Fall
Rural County 911 Grant pro-
gram to upgrade the 911 system
and eventually make all that
possible. The new technology
has been dubbed "Next Genera-
tion 911" or NG911. While the
upgrade made Union County's


E911 Center able to receive text
messaging. video and data, the
cell phone companies still have
upgrades to make before you can
use one of their cell phones to
text a message to 911.
"The FCC has to regulate how
that is going to work," said Tim
Allen of Union County's E911.
"Our new Nex-Gen 911 equip-
ment was installed in preparation
for the new 911 media that will
be available soon." When the
cell phone technology is imple-
mented, Union County's E911


system will be read\ for it.
Allen said that most rural to
medium-sized counties haven't
vet installed this t.pe of equip-
ment, but he expects it to be t\ o
years, at most, before this tech-
nology is available on a wide-
spread basis. Union County is
ready now.
The grant money Union QE9 I
received carried no matching-
funds requirement, meaning that
Union County did not have to

Lake Butler given


clean bill of


health in audit


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer


The annual audit report for the
city of Lake Butler for the fiscal
year that ended Sept. 30 was pre-
sented to city commission mem-
bers on April 11 and contained
no significant deficiencies and
no material weaknesses.
According to the audit report,
the city's net assets (which in-
clude cash, investments, land,
buildings, equipment, etc.) were
approximately $4.2 million. Of
course, the city cannot spend the
value of its land and buildings, so
most of these funds are not avail-
able to pay for operating costs.
The' auditors also noted that
$250, 466 of that total consist-
ed of funds that" are earmarked
for specific purposes, like the
$82,469 that is available for the
community redevelopment pro-
gram. Those funds can only be
used for community redevelop-
ment projects and could not be
used to pay salaries, for-exam-
ple.
As of Sept. 30, the city's to-
tal assets-which also include
money that is due to be paid to
the city, but has not been paid
yet-were approximately $5.9
million. The city's total liabili-
ties were $1.7 million.


Jim Powell, of the Powell and
Jones auditing firm, pointed out
that Lake Butler had a general
fund balance (the money that is
left over after everything else is
paid) of $534,507.
Powell called that a "healthy
fund balance." He said that most
cities the size of Lake Butler
should maintain enough of a
fund balance to pay for the op-
erating expenses of the city for
six months-even if the city re-
ceived no revenue at all during
that time. Lake Butler's fund bal-
ance would actually allow it to
operate for nine months without
revenue.
The city's total fund bal-
ance-which includes unspent
grant funds that can only be
used for specific purposes-was
$952,259.
The enterprise fund, which
funds the city water and sewer
systems and garbage services,
had $3.4 million in assets (in-
cluding the value of land, build-
ings and equipment) and $1.6
million in liabilities. That fund
had a cash reserve of $276,386.
Powell said that while the au-
ditors found no significant defi-
ciencies or material weaknesses,
they did have some suggested

plans cleanup


project April 30


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

Spring has sprung in Union
County and homeowners are air-
ing out their homes, cleaning up
winter debris from their yards and
sprucing up everything in prepa-
ration of the family activities that
occur during the summer.
The Lake Butler Beautifica-
tion Committee is asking that lo-
cal residents not forget their city
when they make plans to clean
things up. April is Beautification
Month in Lake Butler and volun-
teers and equipment are needed
to help spruce up some over-
grown lots.
City Manager Dave Mecusker
is working with the committee
to help coordinate the effort that
has identified three-and possi-
bly four-lots in Lake Butler that
need attention.
Last year, the effort cleaned up
a lot on the corer of C.R. 231
and C.R. 238, where overgrown
vegetation was blocking the view
of motorists trying to turn onto
the busy roadway. That same lot
is due to be mowed during this
Sear's effort. This year's pro-
gram w ill also clear the lot across


the street from that one.
Other lots that are targets of
the effort include one across the
street from Lake Butler Elemen-
tary School and the lot on S.R.
121 that houses the abandoned
church where the steeple was re-
moved last year.
The beautification effort will
take place on Saturday, April 30,
from 7:30 a.m. to noon. Someone
has already volunteered to cook
Boston butt and provide free
sandwiches and drinks for the
people working on the cleanup
effort.
Volunteers and equipment are
needed. Chain saws, Bush Hogs,
wheelbarrows, Takes, pitchforks
and other lawn care equipment
would be particularly useful.
"We may not be able to get
all of these lots cleaned up on
that one day, but we plan to get
as much done as possible," said
Mecusker. "If we get plenty of
volunteers and equipment, then
cleaning up all those lots should
be possible."
Even if you don't have any of
the equipment needed, the most
useful item to donate would be a

ments in cellular technology can
and should provide vital infor-
mation to the E-911 Center in the
event of an emergency\ to help
maintain public safety."
The grant Union Counts re-
ceived allowed the E911 Center
to purchase, install, test and im-
plement an upgrade to the E911
system that is capable of process-
ing these multimedia calls. It also
allows for later upgrades that
will let the E911 system evolve
when cellular phone technology
evolves.
"The system also allows for
straightforward integration with
any software or equipment cur-
rently in use at the E911 Center,"
said Allen. "This will greatly re-
duce the amount of time needed
for dispatchers-to locate a caller
and get directions to respond-
ers."
Unlike most current 911 sys-
tems, Allen said all components
of the new system (Solacom
Guardian NG911) are "fully re-
dundant" and "fault tolerant,"
meaning that if one part of the
system fails, it does not affect
the system's ability to continue
to operate.
"In other words, if one part
breaks, there is another backup
part to take over its role," he
said.
Another good feature of the
system, said Allen, is that it al-
lows for multiple dispatchers to
be conferenced in" on one 911
call. "This greatly assists the
dispatchers wjo did not initially

suggestions did not involve any
financial wrongdoing, but. were
simply areas the auditors saw
where some improvement could
be made. Powell also noted that
these changes had already been
made as of the time the audit was
presented to the city commis-
sion.
Auditors found that the city
had paid $170 in late fees and
finance charges for credit cards
used for city purchases.
City Manager Dave Mecusker
said this was the result of in-
voices not being submitted to
the finance assistant in a timely
manner. The bills had been re-
ceived by the finance assistant
before the assistant received the
invoices that documented the
purchases. Since the finance as-
sistant was supposed to have the
documentation in hand before the

In addition.
Allen said, the
911 Center will now be able to
issue emergency alerts to wire-
less devices in an area via either
voice or text messaging. It will
also communicate with highway
alert systems. If an area needs to
be evacuated, for example, due to
a wildfire or weather emergency,
a message can easily be sent to
every cell phone and land line in
the vicinity.

The process of upgrading 911
systems to use advanced forms
of communication has become
a national initiative, aimed at
improving emergency services
in a wireless society. Actual
implementation of NG911 on a
national level is expected to take
several years.

Mecusker said the city has im-

provide complete documentation
for purchases as soon as they are
made. A copy of the invoice for
each purchase is-now being re-
ceived by the finance department
immediately after the purchase is
made.
The auditors also noted that the
travel expense accounts some-
times did not include the time of
departure and the time.of return.
The travel funds were properly
accounted for, but the paperwork
was not completely filled out.M
Mecusker said the city has
already implemented a system
to ensure that all the paperwork
related to travel expenses is
completed properly. He said this
problem arose because travel
vouchers were sometimes filled
out prior to the person taking the

(NFRN). This network ties to-
gether multiple counties in north-
ern Florida that are providing the
foundation for NG911. NFRN
uses the state of Florida's private
network facilities, select routers,
data sharing technologies and
innovative design to solve call
routing issues, connect cell and
Internet carriers directly to the
E911 Center and provide needed
backup and disaster recovery
plans.
If Union County's E911 Cen-
ter is severely damaged in a
hurricane, for example, NFRN
dispatchers in other counties can
relay emergency calls for Union
County callers.
Allen said the following are
two great examples of how up
and coming technologies will be
used by NG91 1:
Currently, deaf and hear-
ing-impaired people who need
assistance from 911 have to use
Teletype or TDD interpreting
services to relay that call to a 911
dispatcher. The majority of those


deaf people already\ use text
messaging, so %when the NGOi1 I
system is available through their
cell service provider, the\ \% ill be
able to text a message directly\ to
the E911 Center.
In the event of a major hiigh-
way accident, involving multiple
vehicles, the E911 Center w ill
receive numerous calls from ino-
torists. This can sometimes cause
the center to become overloaded
with calls and cause confusion
.about the location of the various
crash sites.
With NG911, the E911 Center
can receive the call and the sys-
tem would automatically notify,
everyone with a cell phone in the
area to avoid the location. This
could possibly help prevent ad-
ditional vehicles from becoming
involved. It would also let unin-
volved motorists know that the
accident has been reported and
would prevent them from calling
the E911 Center with the same


information that \\a.i ,alread\ re-
cei\ed.

Under the new system, the pa-

The auditors' last sugges-
tion regarded paperwork that is
placed in the personnel files of
city employees. Auditors said
each personnel file should con-
tain documentation stating what
salary that person is currently re-
ceiving.
While the city had complete
records of each employee's sal-
ary and any raises that* were
awarded, those details were not
also recorded in each employee's
personnel file.
Mecusker said that data is now
being recorded in the personnel
file for each city employee.

OUC man named Master Logger


Ra, Windham Sr., a logger
-from Pritchett Inc., in Union
Count;,, was recently awarded
.the designation of Florida Master
Logger.
:. Master Loggers are logging
professionals trained in environ-
mentally sound, safe and efficient
logging practices. A total of 41
loggers from around the state
received the Master Logger des-'
ignation following completion of
the three-day education program
held at Bear Creek Educational
Forest in Quincy, March 15-17.
The Master Logger course
includes training in safety, busi-
ness management, rules and
regulations, timber security, en-
vironmental concerns, ethics and
public relations.
These Master Loggers now re-
turn to their businesses with en-
hanced credentials to offer log-
ging and forestry services in this
growing segment of the local and
state economy.
Forestry contributes $59.9
million to the Union County
-economy. Approximately 536


Ray Windham Sr.
employees work directly in the
county's forest industry, which
generates a $17.8 million pay-
roll. Forest products and paper
companies within the state col-
lectively generate $16.6 billion


in manufactured products and
create over 133,000 jobs in local
communities.
According to Bob Moore.
Logger Education Program
Consultant, "the program has
as its goals the enhancement of
professionalism among loggers.
the improvement of the state's
quality of life, the provision of a
continuing flow of forest goods
and services and the protection
of environmental qualities of
Florida's forests." A total of 470
loggers in Florida hold the title
of Master Logger.

Forests cover more than 16
million acres in Florida-nearly
48 percent of the state's total
land area.
The Master Logger program is
sponsored by the Florida Forestry
Association and the Florida Sus-
tainable Forestry Initiative State
Implementation Committee. For
more information, please visit

Your opinion needed by extension


The L'ni\crsit\ of Florida
needs your input on de\elop-
ing the Florida I\tension Long-
Term Range Plan.
A "listening session" has been
set for Tuesday. April 19. at 7
,p.m. in the lake Butler Commu-
nity Center and\ ill allo\\ ever -
one an opportunity to xoice their
opinions on how the extension
service should operate.
There are three ke\ reasons
that the Universit\ of Florida has
scheduled this listening session:
It has been several years since
the extension service had a com-
prehensive long-range planning
effort and much has changed in
Florida. When extension person-
nel considered the budget situa-
tion, advancements in technol-


og\ and emerging issues. the\
felt it \xas critical to ree\amine
their programmatic priorities and
teaching strategies.

The outcome of this listening
session, and the others held in
surrounding counties, \will guide
resource allocation \w within exten-
sion in the future.
This is an opportunity to
forge newx partnerships in sup-
port of extension programs.

How? Listening will be at the
core of extension's long-range
planning effort. Extension seeks
to acquire diverse viewpoints
regarding the future of Florida
through listening sessions, inter-
views, focus groups and surveys,


\with faculty community\ lead-
ers, local government. business.
industry trade associations. state
agencies, health care prol\ ders.
educators, citizens, etc.
After much discussion ; nd
analysis. Florida e\tens.ion \ill
fonnulate a statewide plan thit
reflects the educational priorities
and future directions identified
during the planning process.
Implementation of the plan
will begin with the formation of
interdisciplinary faculty teams to
support programmatic priorities.
These teams will provide lead-
ership to identify appropriate
teaching approaches, educational
coqtent/materials, and outcome
impact measures for the organi-
zation.

The flash from the camera startled Sergeant Gary Cecil
from RMC as he walked in the early morning hours
around the track. It didn't even cause him to break
stride, however. Cecil is a four-time cancer survivor
and he spent the full 16 hours on the track, unlike most
participants who took turns with other team members.
He had plenty of company from other members of the
RMC team, however. Cecil raised $2,700 by himself for
the American Cancer Society. That did not count what
was raised by his team. In this photo, Cecil carries the
spirit stick his team earned for sheer gung-ho-edness.

According to the Special
Olympics Web site. torch runs
take place around the world and
invol e a broad cross-section of
the law enforcement community.
Recently, military police from
Hawaii who were stationed
in Iraq conducted a torch run
in Tikrit, the home village of
deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam


Hussein.
The Law Enforcement torch
run first began in 1981 when
the police chief in Wichita,
Kan., Richard LaMunyon, saw
an urgent need to raise funds
for and increase awareness of
Special Olympics. The Torch
Run was quickly adopted by
the International Association of


Chiefs of Police (IACP), now
recognized as the founding law
enforcement organization of the
Law Enforcement Torch Run for
Special Olympics.

"What started in Kansas as
a flicker of hope for Special
Olympics has now become a
roaring flame of stability for


Special Olympics athletes
worldwide," said LaMunyon.

torch run, please contact Christy

ilad high interest and number
r)f members forced the chapter
to find a new meeting place to
accommodate it after
outgrow ing a room at the
IHOPin Starke.
"It's a growing thing,"
Leshuk said of the interest in
gold prospecting. "The gold is
there for the picking."
Leshuk said it's a fun way of
making money Over the last
year or two, he said he and his
wife, Charlynn, have probably)
collected an ounce and a half
of gold. Leshuk said with gold
prices :~ re.iising to $1,500-

G id Pr n,-pec rs Asociation
'f America has a junior
di.Msiin for children 16 and
under.
"We are the only chapter
that has anything open for
kids." Leshuk said.
Junior members take part in
various activities, such as
making beaded jeweln and
leather items to sell at club
fundraisers. Of course, they
also get to go out and look for
gold, gemstones and other
items.
Leshuk planned a special
active ity for the junior members
during the club's annual picnic
at Mike Roess Gold Head
Branch State Park. He buried
coins without the children's
kno ledge before they scoured
an area with metal detectors.
"They found those coins,"
Leshuk said. "They just about
went crazy. It was the coolest
thing. They were just about as
happy as a bear in a honey
tree."
Leshuk's secret didn't last.
He was talking with adult
chapter members at a
following meeting about what
he had done when one of the
junior members overheard the
conversation.
"One of them heard me and
said, 'You did what?' He
thought those things had been
buried there for years," Leshuk
said.
Leshuk took junior
member-and grandson-
Jadin Paul to St. Augustine
Beach one day to do some

"1 told Jadin to scrape it up
in the pan--usr the top la\er
of the sand--to see if w e coul
find anything." Leshuk said. "I
wasn'tt planning on seeing
stuff. Sure enough. we panned
it out, and there were four
specks of gold in our pan.
"No\ it would've taken us
all day to get any kind of
weight at all, but it was there.
It was fun."
There are approximately It0
junior members of the chapter,
and they've proven to be good
recruiters of news members of
any age. They tell their friends
about their activities, which
gets not onl\ their friends
interested, but their friends'
parents as well.
In the December 2010
edition of the Gold Prospectors
Association of America's
"Pick and Shovel (Gazete,"
Leshuk was quoted by Brad
Jones as say ing "When
(children) get involved and
interested in things, the first
thing they're going to do is get
their parents involved. It
promotes family, and we're
kind of happy about that."
Leshuk first got interested in
gold prospecting by watching
the show "Gold Fever" on the
Outdoor Channel. The show is
hosted by Tom Massie, who is
the president of the Gold
Prospectors Association of
America. (Massie's father,
George "Buzzard" Massie
founded the association.)

Gold, Gem and Treasure Hunters President John
Leshuk (far right) shows his grandsons Jadin Paul

The \\hole prospect of
prospecting seemed "kind of
cool," Leshuk said, so he
mailed off a request for a Gold
Prospectors Association of
America membership kit.
Leshuk and his \ife ha'ie
family in Georgia. so when
they paid a visit, the
mountainous areas of that state
seemed natural places to go
looking for gold.
"Me and my little grandson.

What's happening at the Capitol


Representative Janet Adkins
shares her thoughts and activities
during the fifth week of the
Legislative session.
As I p;ause- t, reflect in .,cce I: I the I l'
Ic l-,latiic scsivn.the ne .: rd tha: tC dcIJe ri.
he '. eekl. "lluid A' rrcm 'cri *s 'i,. \rk t clt thcir
hJlls heard and lined up with the senate c,,mpaniun
hill,. los of amendment, are in pla.. and pretty
much an:, thing can happen
I he .ceCk started before 6 a m. ith the dric
to illahai,ce 'I he first committee meeting oI the
veck 'wa Joint Administratie P'rocedures. 'I he
committee took up five new v. sections: one from
the Department of Revenue and four from Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conseration Commission.The
objection with the Department of Revenue was
pretty straightforward and the committee sustained
the objection.
J he committee also sustained all four
objections dealing with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission. Because the
commission is awarded authority both through
the state constitution and Florida statutes, the
committee had to sort through the details to
determine if the rules ere outside the scope of its
authority. We had three individuals representing
the fishing industry that expressed their frustration
with what the) see as an "untouchable, nobody
regulates us" entity, and likened it to trying to nail
jello to the wall.
At the conclusion of the meeting, the committee
expressed its concern and suggested that the
Legislature consider a ballot initiative to amend the
state constitution to limit the authorities granted to
FW('.
Next, it was time for my Transportation and
High\wa Safety Committee. I was thrilled that HB
1263 dealing with small-trucking firms was on the
agenda. This bill is a direct outcome of a meeting
I had in Bradford County last January with several
small-trucking business owners. The challenges
they face from state agencies are incredible,and they
are quickly being bought out by large firms. The bill
establishes a small-trucking regulation workgroup
to examine rules and regulations that affect small-
trucking firms and impede or otherwise interfere
with their operation.
Specifically, the workgroup will examine
penalties assessed for idling and theft of cargo
or equipment, improving access to registration
and renewal of the International Registration
Plan for motor carriers, random inspections by
the Department of Transportation, and truck
washing. A small-trucking firm is defined as a
trucking enterprise with fewer than 30 employees or
fewer than 50 trucks in operation. The workgroup
would provide legislative recommendations before
October 1.
Later that afternoon 1 met with Chief Judge Lott
and Court AdministratorTed McFetridge regarding
court funding and Chair Proctor and Chair Wise
regarding education issues. Sen. Wise and I are
carrying companion education bills (HB 1255 and
SB 1696), so it was helpful to have a chance to
negotiate the differences between the two bills to
get them better aligned. This meeting resulted in

I- 1 P'rkecns tes:it:ec in :a.:- r of the bill and
J'mplimentcd this pr .!;cn. stating that he felt it
SUIuld s,ae the state money to begin remediation
cftrts earlier. This bill is no~ ready to be heard on
the House floor.
Later that da\. I met with representatives from
the First Coast Manufacturer's Association to
discuss their legislative priorities.Then it w\as
time to attend my last meeting of the Rulemaking
and Regulation committee. After passing out
several bills. we had a workshop on a Department
of Health rule dealing with public swimming
poxls. Although the federal government allows
pox)ls to be retrofitted with a variety of options.
the state agency has written in rule that in Florida,
only one option is acceptable. Unfortunately, it is
the most expensive e option.
Because there is a general bill (HB1409) dealing
with this issue. 1 do not think the committee \\ill
address this issue any further this session, but it is
a gootx example of hoss rulemaking boundaries can
he overstepped by agencies. 1 have really enjoyed
sern ing on this committee and learning more about
the rulemaking process. I wrapped up the day by
attending the Polk County Day Reception on the
22nd floor of the Capitol.
Wednesday marked the 30th day of session. It
felt good to know that w\e were halfway through a
cvry difficult session. I enjoyed meeting with John
Simmons of Baker County to discuss health care
and education issues.
House members spent seven hours in chambers
for the second reading of the house budget and
budget conforming bills. The House budget totals
$66.5 billion for fiscal year 2011-12. This includes
$23.6 billion in federal funds, $20.2 billion in state
trust funds and $22.7 billion in general revenue. It
also includes a total of $2.2 billion in reserves. The
$66.5 billion budget represents a $4 billion or 5.7
percent reduction from last year's budget.
The most contentious bill was HB1405 dealing
with changes to the Florida Retirement System
(FRS). These changes include a 3 percent
employee contribution to FRS, termination of the
Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP),
and an increase in the normal retirement age and
years of service for new employees. Collectively,
these changes to FRS are expected to save the state
$710 million in general revenue, and more than
$1.1 billion in savings to all participating FRS
employers.
Also included in the House budget are projected
costs savings from comprehensive deregulation. In
many cases, it costs the state more to regulate
professions and businesses than the revenues
generated by their respective fees. Deregulation
legislation passed by the House will reduce
overhead costs by $11.3 million for 114,511

Local business

goes above and

beyond
Dear Editor:
My wife and I and two friends
\ere returning from Ft. Myers,
where we had spent the winter,
and stopped at your IHOP loca-
tion in Starke. We were served
by our hostess, April, and we all
commented on how pleasant and
helpful she was. We enjoyed our
meal and left the restaurant at
about 8:30 a.m.
At about 1 p.m., we stopped
for lunch, now 250 miles away,
and my wife, Colleen, noticed
that she had left her purse at the
restaurant. We called and spoke
with Sherry, the assistant man-
ager, and she had already placed
the purse in the office for safe-
keeping. We told Sherry we
would contact UPS later in the
day to have the purse sent to us
in Canada. UPS told us we
would have to be there to pack it
up. We then called back and
spoke to the general manager,
Garry, who said he would pack
it up and return it to us via mail.
We called back on March 5,
and Garry had already mailed
out the package. I own my own
furniture company, and I would
be very pleased if my employees
treated our customers with the
kind, helpful manner that these
employees treated us with. They
now have a very satisfied and
loyal customer. Please pass on
our thanks to the staff. The food
was pretty good as well. Thank
you.

Bradford-Union

Career Technical

training viable

choice
Dear Editor:
Many of the unsung heroes in
this small community are the
professionals and students at the
Bradford-Union Career Techni-
cal Center. Professional educa-
tors and other staff with exten-
sive work and educational expe-
rience are making the difference
in the lives of students. More
important, these are students
who successfully complete their
programs in career technical
programs and find job place-
ment after training.
Unfortunately, these are some
of the best-kept secrets in this
small town, except for an occa-
siorial recognition now and then.
I am amazed that there is not a
waiting list of people trying to
gain admission in these pro-
grams. This would include those
who have come to a career
crossroads, those exploring
training fields in high-demand
areas, and those financially chal-
lenged due to the expense of
pursuing a college education.
This writer has evaluated the
mission of the BUCTC and the
center's excellence in fulfilling
their mission statement over the
last decade. It is impressive- in
particular, its efforts to accom-
modate a diversity of learning
styles of students.
Therefore, for those who
might be reading this commen-
tary to the editor, remember this:
Your freedom to pursue your
predestined success is a choice
you make.
One recent success story
comes to mind, but there are
other untold stories of graduates
\hose lives have been changed.
This recent story involves a
close mutual acquaintance. He
found himself returning to his
home of Bradford County some
20 years after leaving the area.
The problem he experienced
was trying to live on a salary)
with sporadic work as a con-
struction worker. tile layer and
la\sn maintenance \worker over
the last five years.
Ilpon returning to Bradford
County. he enrolled in the Brad-
ford-lUnion Career Tech pro-
gram. finishing eight weeks of
training irf the program. After
three weeks of filling out appli-
cations and interviews; along
with a persistent walk in his
faih in God. he received two job
offers in the same day. In exer-


cising his predestined freedom,
he accepted the job. which of-
fered a salary above the state-
wide average for a beginning
teacher.
In closing, I ask that you not
sit on your predestined choice
by divine authorship, but wvdk
in your faith. The grass might
just be greener in your own
neighborhood school.

Thanks for

supporting this

year's Relay for

Life
Dear Editor:
I have already thanked my
committee for the awesome job
they did this year, but I can't
thank each of you enough for
coming out this year and sup-
porting Relay!
This year I w\as contacted by a
UF journalism student who
called me and wanted to attend
the opening ceremonies of our
Relay to video tape it. I was
thrilled! She stayed about two
hours video taping numerous
areas and interviewing different
groups.
When it came my turn to be
interviewed, one of her ques-"
tions was, "What about this
year's Relay makes it so spe-
cial?" I didn't hesitate to answer:
You see my mom,
Dottie, worked the survivor reg-
istration desk with my mother-
in-law, Wanda. My mom had a
young woman come up and
register and explain her
story.'She had been diagnosed
about eight years ago with
glioblastoma. This is the same
cancer we lost my aunt to last
September. She had her surgery
and was cancer free. Then
recently they found 13 new.
spots on her brain. She told my
mom, "This will probably be my
last Relay."
If we did nothing else on Samt
urday but make that ladies time
at Relay the most memorable
time she had, well, then EVERY
one of us did our job!
The survivors, those fighting
and those we've lost... that's why
we have 30 hours of no sleep
and the achy back and feet. But
the experience alone is worth ill
I hope that each of you, along
with all of your teams, enjoyed
Relay this year. I hope to see.
you next year, and I hope wd
can make it just as memorable
for someone else as we did this
year.
Thank you again from the b6t-
tom of my heart to EACH and
EVERY one of you!

BMS Hurricanes storm through


undefeated regular season


BY CLIFF SMELLED
Regional .Vews 'Sports Editor
Bradford Middle School's
softball team shut out l\
opponents and defeated
opponents b\ an average of I I
runs per game en route to
posting an undefeated season
prior to the start of the
Su\ annee Middle School
Athletic Conference
postseason tournament.
The Hurricanes improved to
12-0 after defeating .ake
Butler 21-9 on April 7. It was
their fifth straight road win,
with those wins tallying a
combined score of 70-14.
Bradford's 7-3 win over
Chiefland on April 4 was the
closest of its last five games.
though the Lake Butler Tigers,
who lost a previous game to
the 'Canes by a score of 3-0,
made things interesting in the
21-9 regular-season finale. The
'Canes scored five runs in the
first inning and led 8-1 after
two. Lake Butler, though,
clawed back to make it an 8-5
game.
Bradford head coach
Amanda Reed said she wasn't
worried about her team
responding.
"It's such a big rivalry (with
Lake Butler)," Reed said.
"They would've done anything
to not lose."
The 'Canes opened up a
seven-run lead in the fourth,
taking advantage of an error
and a wild pitch.
It was 15-9 going into the
top of the seventh, when
Bradford pushed six runs
across. Sabina Watson and
Shelby Wilkison each drove in
a run in the seventh, while
Taylor Cruce drove in two
with her second double of the
game.
Overall, Cruce had four hits
and three RBI, while Lainie

three RBI. A triple in Rodgers'
