Man critically injured


in motorcycle crash


BY TAMMY WILKERSON
Times Editor
Thomas Allen Larkin II, 62, of
Raiford was critically injured in
a motorcycle crash that occurred
at approximately 6:25 p.m. on
Aug. 1, on the corner of C.R. 125
and C.R. 199 in Raiford.
For unknown reasons, Larkin's


1997 Honda motorcycle lost con-
trol as he rounded the curve. Be-
cause of the injuries sustained in
the crash, Larkin had to be air-
lifted by ShandsCair to Shands
UF in Gainesville.
According to Lt. Bill Leeper
of the Florida Highway Patrol,
the cause of the crash is still un-
der investigation. As of Aug. 2,


a crash report had not yet been
completed.
Because of the severity of the
crash, Bradford County Emer-
gency Services also responded
and assisted Union County.
As of press time on Tuesday
evening, Larkin remained hos-
pitalized in serious condition at
Shands UF.


BC deputies injured


when patrol cars collide


Two deputies from the Brad-
ford County Sheriffs Office are
recovering after a Sunday night
crash left both with serious inju-
ries.
23-year-old Christopher S.
Register and 34-year-old Chris-
topher G. Bennett were en route
to the same location when the ac-
cident occurred.
Both were traveling south on
S.R. 100 around 9 p.m. July 31.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol report, Bennett began
to slow approaching Southeast
7th Street...Register failed to ob-
serve the slowdown and collided
with the rear end of Bennett's
patrol car.
Bennett's car rotated counter-
clockwise onto the east shoulder
of the highway and struck a pow-
er pole. Register's car continued
south, coming to a final rest of
the west shoulder.

Register was released from
Shands at the University of Flor-
ida after being treated for a wrist
injury and a cut above his eye.
Bennett, who suffered a broken

collarbone and received a more
serious head wound, was held
longer for observation.
Both deputies were responding
to a medical emergency involv-
.ing a woman having difficulty
breathing. The call was placed by
the woman's six-year-old child,
and according to the sheriffs of-
fice, Bennett and Register, were
dispatched along with emergen-
cy medical personnel because of


their proximity to the location of
the call.
Like both deputies, the mother
is expected to recover.

Bennett and Register have both
worked less than a year for the
sheriffs office. The FHP report
indicated charges were pending
in the crash, but the sheriffs of-
fice won't take any action until
that report is finalized.


School board millage


shows slight increase


Following the July 26 public
hearing on the millage and
tentative budget, the Union
County School Board approved
the millage rates to be levied
for the 2011-2012 fiscal year as
a slight increase over the 2010-
2011 levels.
The school board's portion of
the millage for 2011-2012 fiscal
year is. 8.0450 mills, a slight
'increase from the 8.005 mills set
by the school board last year.
The school board's portion
of the property taxes on a home
valued at $50,000 would have
been approximately $200.13


last year, assuming that the
homeowner had a $25,000
homestead exemption. The tax
on the same property\ would be
approximately $201.13 for the
2011-2012 year, provided that
the property did not decline in
value.
However, most property values
did decline. According to the
property value information for
Union County, property values
have declined approximately
three percent plus. Taking this
into consideration, the actual
amount paid to the school coffers
by a homeowner whose property\


was valued at $50,000 last
year will most likely be around
$195.09 for the 2011-2012 year.
Previous to the public hearing,
onJuly 15,the Florida Department
of Education certified to all
district school superintendents
the Required Local Effort (RLE)
millage rate and the Prior Period
Funding Adjustment Millage
(PPFAM) pursuant to Florida
Statutes.
Because the state sends each
school district a significant
amount of funding for its budget.

driving and then after stopping
the car, he and the companion
carried Ardolino to a shallow
ditch filled with water and held
his head underneath until he
died.
During the power outage, Bar-
rett scaled three perimeter fences
and escaped from UCI. Colorado
officials said Barrett had been
living in Colorado for the past 17
years using the name Neil Rich-
ard Meltzer and was featured on
the notorious- television series
"America's Most Wanted" as
one of Florida's 12 most sought-
after fugitives.
While living in a makeshift


cabin in a remote area, approxi-
mately 200 miles southwest of
Denver, Barrett was discovered
when two U.S. marshals stopped
in to speak with area residents
about fire danger. According to
the U.S. Marshals Service, one
of the officers, Charlie Ahmad,
noticed a distinctive tattoo on the
hand of Barrett.
In addition to being captured
without incident, police found a
marijuana grow house and five
firearms on his property.
After 32 years on the run, Bar-
rett is being held at the Montrose
County jail and faces extradition
proceedings back to Florida.

On July 27, officers in Colo-
rado captured a 60-year-old man
who escaped from Union Correc-
tional Institution (UCI) during a

At the time of his escape, his
second in eight years, Freder-
ick Barrett was serving a life
sentence for murder in the 1971
death of Carl Ardolino.

Barrett and another companion

the state also requires each
district to raise a certain amount
of funding from local sources -
essentially from property taxes.
The state therefore sets a portion
of the millage rate (property tax)
that the school district has to
levy or risk losing the funding it
receives from state sources. Both
the RLE and PPFAM are set by
the state for that reason.
In Union County, the RLE and
PPFAM millage for 2011-2012 is
5.5470 mills.
The memo received from DOE
said, "Districts are reminded
that the PPFAM millage must.
be levied in* addition to their
Required Local effort millage
and any discretionary millages."
If it isn't, the state funds will be
withheld and the school district
will find itself significantly
strapped for operating funds.
The capital outlay millage
is 1.5 mills and is also set by
Florida Statute.
The discretionary millage is
the amount of property taxes
that the school district itself can
decide to levy. In Union County,
the discretionary millage is
0.7480, or about three-fourths of
one mill.

been the result of Gov. Rick
Scott's first signed death warrant

Valle would have been the first


In November of 2010 the
voters of Union County passed
a referendum continuing the
0.2500 mill (one-quarter of one
mill) levy for critical operating
needs of the school district for
two years.
Adding all those millage
categories together, brings the
total school board millage for
2011-2012 fiscal year to 8.0450.
Note that the school board
portion is only one part of the
total millage rate that property
owners will see on their tax bills.
The county, water management
district-and any city the
property might lie in-will also
be setting millage rates.
SAccording to DOE documents,
the 2011 certified tax roll received
from the Florida Department of
Revenue lists the taxable value
of all property in Union County
at' $249 million ($249,230,249)
for 2011-2012. The taxable
value is down approximately $8
million ($8,106,370) from the
2010-2011 totals.
The final school board budget
hearing will be on Tuesday, Sept.
13, at 6 p.m. in the Union County

Stop it now!....


Smoking that is, with LBH program


BY TAMMY WILKERSON
Times Editor

Lake Butler Hospital (LBH)
is offering residents of Union
County free resources to those
individuals who would like help
to stop using tobacco.
Just over a year ago, LBH
received a grant funded .by the
State of Florida Tobacco Settle-
ment Agreement. This money
was awarded to provide hospital
employees, patients and com-
munity members with tobacco
treatment, as well as to aid in the
implementation of a tobacco-free
hospital campus.
"Receiving this grant has been
a huge blessing for our commu-
nity," said Jill Fulgham, tobacco
program director.
"It's affording us the opper-
tunity to be able to provide the
tools and products needed to quit
this extremely dangerous and ad-
dictive substance."
While supplies last, LBH is of-
fering free nicotine replacement
therapies to anyone who would
like help stopping use of any'to-
bacco products. Items available
are nicotine gptches, various fla-
vors of gum, and various flavors
of lozenges.
The hdspital has three trained


tobacco treatment specialists
(TTS) on staff. In order to help
you be as successful as possible
in your attempt to quit, the fol-
lowing requirements must be met
in order to receive the free nico-
tine replacement therapies: you
must meet in person or by phone
with one of LBH's TTS for an
initial assessment, and you must
commit to attend a free stop-to-
bacco class.

During the assessment the
TTS will determine the best plan
of treatment to help you become
tobacco free. In an effort to ac-
commodate as many people as
possible, LBH has several op-
tions for attending the class. The
most popular is the six-week
class with one to one-half hour
sesgiois. One-day classes are
occasionally offered and start-
ing next month six-week phone
classes will be available.
The class is beneficial in help-
ing individuals that use any type
of tobacco to quit, not just those
who smoke.
'"Research shows that using
nicotine replacement therapies
along with attending the class
can double your chances of quit-


To date, LBH has distributed
5,198 boxes of nicotine replace-
ment therapies, completed 631
assessments, and had 174 partic-
ipants coriplete the class. More
than 60 percent of the individuals
who received treatment have quit
tobacco.

For those individuals that are
looking to stop tobacco use but
cannot commit to the class or do
not want to receive the free nico-
tine replacement therapies, there
is still another option. A TTS
member would be happy to meet
with you and provide you with a
plan to stop tobacco use on your
own terms.

On June 30, 2010, LBH im-
plemented a tobacco-free cam-
pus policy, which extends to all
buildings, grounds, parking lots,
or personal vehicles on hospi-
tal grounds. The purpose of the
policy is to provide a safe, clean
and healthy environment for all
employees, physicians, patients
and visitors. The goal is to pro-
mote good health and influence
public attitudes about the use of
tobacco.
According to the Centers for


ting and remaining tobacco free," Disease Control and Prevention
said Fulgham. (CDC), an estimated 46 million


people, or 20.6 percent, of Unit-
ed States citizens, ages 18 years
and older, smoke cigarettes. Of
that, an estimated 16-19 percent
of adults in the state of Florida
smoke.
More deaths are caused each


year by tobacco use than by all
deaths from human immunodefi-
ciency virus (HIV), illegal drug
use, alcohol use, motor vehicle
injuries, suicides, and murders
combined, according to the CDC
and the Journal of the American


Medical Association.

Consulting God
People are constantly consulting people in higher positions
of authority. For example, when' you are dealing with a
salesperson they often say, let me talk to the boss, because the
boss has the authority in the relationship. *
When it comes to spiritual matters Jesus has "all authority"
(Matt. 28:18). Therefore when I am faced with a question I need
to consult the Bible. In the Old Testament as David attempted to
bring the ark to Jerusalem a man died because he touched it.
David says this happened, Because we did not consult'Him about
the proper order (1 Chr.15:13). Let us always be sure to consult
God about the proper order in everything we do. In exchange for
consulting God about the proper order many consult their
preacher or otheidindividual. Yet when we are given an answer
by men we must till always consult the Bible (Acts 17:11).

Special New River training program went to the dogs


New program

helps both inmates
and K-9s
BY TAMMY WILKERSON
Times Editor

A recently initiated pro-
gram, called ADAPT (Adopt-
able Dogs After Prison Train-
ing), allows inmates within
the Florida Department of
Corrections (D.O.C), to take
unwanted shelter dogs and
train them, giving the dogs a
much-needed second chance
in life and the inmates the
skills they need to survive life
on the outside.

On Aug. 1, the D.O.C. held
it's very first ADAPT gradu-
ation ceremony of the first
class of dogs trained by state
inmates. The program con-
sisted of five dogs and 15,
inmates. At the event, one
dog was chosen to receive the


coveted "Top Dog"
award.

According to the
American Society
for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals
(ASPCA) approxi-
mately five to seven
million companion
animals enter animal
shelters nationwide
every year, and ap-
proximately, three to
four million of those
are euthanized, or
put down, simply be-
cause there is no one
to adopt them.

With help from in-
mates housed within

certified. Summer months
offer smaller class sizes and
offer a better opportunity for
students to attend, because
they often have more free
time then.
People 16 years old or older
and born after May 31, 1975,
must complete the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Corhmission's hunter safety
requirement before they can
buy a Florida hunting license.
There is an exception
though, a law passed a
few years ago that allows
individuals to hunt under
the supervision of a licensed
hunter, 21 years old or older,
without having to complete
the state's hunter safety
certification.

It's called the Hunter
Safety Deferral License, and
it allows those people who
purchase one to hunt on a one-
year trial basis. It's designed
to encourage experienced
hunters to teach novice hunters
about the sport and is a great
incentive for getting, more
people to give hunting a try.
Individuals taking advantage
of this would have to pass
a. hunter safety class to be
eligible to buy a license and
hunt the following year.

If you're a youngster and
already hunt, I suggest you go
ahead and take a hunter safety
class before you turn 16. Of
course, until then, you may
hunt under adult supervision.

regarding the 2011-2012
hunting season dates or to
register for. a hunter safety
class visit www.MyFWC.

office.


put through an intense eight-
week obedience-training pro-
gram by inmates from the
New River Correctional Insti-
tution's O-Unit, in Raiford.

Currently, one of every
three inmates released from
the Florida prison system re-
turns to prison within three
years. Through programs like
ADAPT, the D.O.C. is focus-
ing on teaching inmates viable
job skills that will lead them
to productive jobs and law-
abiding lives upon release.

The inmates in the program
receive not only the tangible
benefits of learning certifiable
skills in the handling, care,
and training of the animals
from a master dog trainer, Jay
King, but also the intangible


benefits of the unconditional
love of a dog.

The dogs benefit not only
from the training they receive,
but also from the extensive
daily interaction and social-
ization with humans provided
in the program, which is a di-
rect contrast to shelter life.

"This was a great program,"
said inmate and ADAPT train-
er Randy Walding, "it's been
therapeutic and rewarding."

All ADAPT graduates are
available for adoption for a
one-time fee of $100. Each
dog adopted is crate trained
and housebroken, are up to
date on their vaccinations and
been spayed or neutered.

Of the five dogs trained in


the first class, four were al-
ready adopted before their
final graduation. As of press
time, Izzy. was still awaiting
adoption.
To adopt an ADAPT gradu-
ate, please contact Kristi Ad-
ams of the Humane Society of
Northeast Florida at 386-325-
1587 or you may visit their
website at www.hsnefl.com.

Clay Electric


offers energy


saving tips


With afternoon tempera-
tures anticipated to be in the
upper 90s, Clay Electric Co-
operative reminds its custom-
ers there are steps they can
take to use elec-tricity wisely
and still stay com-fortable.
Sherman Phillips, manager
of Clay's Energy Services
Divi-sion, explained that
with the hot and dry weath-
er that has been forecast for
North Florida through June
12, people will be looking for
ways to stay cool while hold-
ing down their elec-tricity us-
age.
Phillips noted that the ldss
en-ergy efficient a home is,
the longer the air conditioner
unit will have to run to main-
tain the temperature in the
house. Ac-cording to Phillips,
there are steps homeowners
can take to stay comfortable
and also keep a handle on
their electricity bills.

Phillips offers the follow-
ing tips for staying cool and
using energy wisely:
SRaise the thermostat as


high as is comfortable. Set
your thermostat at 78 degrees
or higher. For each degree
you lower the temperature
from the recommended set-
ting, you can increase your,
bill' up to 4 per-cent. Raise
the thermostat 5 de-grees
when you leave the house.
Customers concerned about
avoiding a utility bill surprise
this summer should pay close
attention to'their home's ther-
mostat setting over the next
couple of months.
Use ceiling fans to make
the room more comfortable,
but only use them while you
are in the room.

On extremely hot days,
do less cooking inside; use
a mi-crowave and/or cook
outside. Do laundry early
in the day, especially if the
laundry room is inside. Be-
cause clothes dryers release a
lot of heat, consider hanging
clothes outside to dry.
Turn off all unnecessary
heat-generating appliances
such as lights in empty rooms
or computers not in use.

NEWS FROM BRADFORD COUNTY', UNION COUNTY AND THE LAKE REGION'




Rick's aims to offer local diners a different experience


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
It could very well be a
restaurant in another city, but
there will always be one
reminder to diners at Rick's
that they are still in Starke.
SRick's owner Rick Jones
said one of the main comments
he gets when talking to diners
is that it is so quiet in the
restaurant.
"About one minute later, the
train goes by," he said,
laughing.
Rick's is the newest addition
to Starke's eateries, located in
the building that previously
housed JWhale Tales on Call
Street in downtown Starke.
Jones, however, is hoping to
create not just another place to
eat, but a different type of
dining experience entirely
without having to drive to


Gainesville or Jacksonville.
Jones, who moved to Starke
from New Jersey in 2009 and
who has restaurant experience,
decided he would give the
locals that experience because
of his own desire to eat
somewhere different.
"I *was looking for a
tablecloth-dining restaurant in-
town where I could sit and
enjoy a nice, comfortable meal
in a nicer setting," Jones said.
With a conscious eye toward
aesthetics, Jones has created
that setting, transforming what
used to be a wide-open, sports-.
bar-type restaurant in Whale
Tales into a restaurant with a
carpeted dining room,
consisting of tables and
booth, tablecloths and cloth
napkins. Booths have
individual lighting, while soft,
pastel colors have replaced the


brighter colors of Whale Tales.
"Those that are looking for a
better atmosphere can have a.
better atmosphere," Jones said.
"It has become the destination
dining for those looking for a
nice night out for a longer,
leisurely dinner. We don't
offer a buffet. We don't offer a
salad bar. It's a nicer setting
inside "
That's not to be confused
with upscale dining, however.
Jones said some people who
look at his menu find one item,
such as the $25 filet mignon,
and conclude that Rick's is too
expensive for them.
However, the menu does
have items under $10, and
theie are early-bird dining
specials for $9.75 from 4 p.m.
until 6 p.m. He has specials,
such as Wild Wing


Hazel and Peter Richardson of Starke epjoy dinner for the first time at Rick's. "It's
good," Hazel said of her rustic chicken.,

Rick Jones (right), the owner of Rick's is pictured with employee Beverly Blanton in
the restaurant's pub area.


Wednesday that feature 25-
cent 'wings and the Sunday
morning Egglicious special,
which is all-you-can-eat eggs
with a meat accompaniment
for $5.99.
"There are reasonably priced
items on the:menu also, but
there are expensive items,"
Jones said. "If ,somebody
comes in for a very nice dinner
and wants to spend $75 on
dinner for two, they can do
that, but they can also dine for
$20 for two people. The choice
is theirs."
Rick's early-bird specials
are 'not scaled-down versions
of regular dinners. The
portions are the same, and
those portions are proving to
be plenty for a lot of guests,
who find themselves taking
enough food home to make a
meal the next day.
"I feel that our base business
is a reasonably priced meal
with a quantity that makes the
-guest feel they received a fair
value for the food received,"
Jones said.
Rick's may not be the kind
of restaurant one wants to eat
at daily or even on a weekly
basis. That's OK. Jones' intent
was to create a restaurant that
would be ideal for special
occasions such as birthdays
and anniversaries without
requiring people to leave


Starke.
"It's great for a special night
out," Jones said.
Having said that, Jones said
he has many repeat customers.
"For where the economy is,
it is surprising that we see the
repeat diners over and over
again," Jdnes said. "It must be
that the three levels are there.
That's the quality of food, the
service and the aesthetic
enhancements. They all go
hand in hand."
Like Whale Tales, Rick's
does have a bar, but that is
contained in a pub area that is
separated from the dining
room. In fact, you cannot view
one area from the other.
"The clientele that dsed to
dine at Whale Tales stops and
looks, and it almost seem like
they're in a state of shock
when they look at it," Jones
said. "The only. thing that
carried over from Whale Tales,
basically, is the bar top itself.
It's a beautiful, hadmade,
wooden bar top from the
(building's) original floor."
Jones used to dine at Whale
Tales. When Whale Tales
closed, he saw an opportunity
to create a different type of
restaurant as well as' to give
himself something to do in
retirement.
"I worked for the Census


Bureau for a while as a
personnel recruiter," Jones
said. "When that ended, I
found myself still looking for
something. Being that I had
always been in business
myself, I was not really sure
that working for someone was
my forte."
So it was back into the
restaurant business, though
Jones did give thought to
another business he was
involved in for 30 years of his
life-roller skating.

Skating from a Northern
farm to life in a small,
Southern town
Jones grew up on a farm in
upstate New York. His
weekends were spent at the
local roller skating rink. There,
he perfected his moves as well
as created a vision for his
future.
"I did the competitive
dances," he said. "I knew all
the waltzes and foxtrots on
roller skates.
"I just had a childhood
dream that I would like to own
my own roller skating rink one
day."
Jones served in the military
when he was of age and went

Editorial/Opinion

Telegraph, Times a Monitor Thursday, Aug. 4, 2011 Page 4B


Letters to the Editor


Setting the
record straight
Dear Editor:
Two rumors or
misconceptions about me are
being repeatedly brought to my
attention. I feel both need to be
addressed for the benefit of my
*many patients and friends in
the community.
First, I have not retired from
the practice of dentistry, nor do
I have plans to retire anytime
in the foreseeable future. I am
still accepting new patients and
work full time. The addition of
my son, Adam, to my practice
over six years ago was a very
proud moment and a
significant augmentation to
Bradford Family Dentistry.
However, his presence here is
to help us continue our legacy
of being a two-dentist practice,
not to replace me.
Second, I have not left
Starke. My primary residence
is still in Bradford County.
While it is true that I, like
many d~.ers in town, have
acquiredreal estate out of the
county, it was done primarily
as an investment opportunity.
It has not changed my
commitment to my practice,
my patients, or this
community.
I hope this sets the record
straight and puts an end to
tumors and innuendos that
serve no one, and have
apparently caused both
patients and friends undue
concern.
William Marchese
.Starke

Learn from the
past
Dear Editor:
Let's turn the hands of time
back before integration of the
schools here in Bradford
County.
Sarah F. Jenkins and Stella
Roberts were principals of
Pleasant Grove (or Water Oak)
Elementary School. Sallie
Price from Gainesville was
principal of Thurston
Elementary School. Mollie
Meeks from Jacksonville was
principal of RJE High School.
If segregation had
continued, there probably
would have continued to be
Afro-American women
principals. They, were very
capable. Probably not any of
this is on record of these Afro-
American women being
principals.
I went to the school board
office in the late '60s or early
'70s to retrieve information
concerning some Afro-
American retired teachers and
was told the school board did
not have a record of their


retirement, but at the same
time, these teachers were
receiving their retirement
benefits from the state of
Florida. This tells a lot.
When integration came on
the scene about 20 years after
the Brown vs. Topeka Kansas
court decision (I will not go
into details), and the Afro-
American schools began to be
systematically closed (without
any input from Afro-
Americans), it was mostly
unheard of for an Afro-
American male to be a
principal, let alone an Afro-
American woman.
There is much to be said on
these issues. Where have we-
come from? Where are we
now? Where are we going?
Where do we need to go? Do.
you know what is happening?
If iot, are you trying to find
out? If you are not trying to
find out, as a result, we are all
in a sad and pitiful state.
Let us pray and depend on
God for divine guidance. If
you depend on man, he will
mislead you.

A perspective
on the city of
Starke utility bill
Dear Editor:
My, July utility bill from the
city of Starke will arrive
shortly. Based on my June bill,
I expect to face a $325-plus
bill and a similar bill in
August. I will be unhappy with
the amount of the bills and
have. vocally criticized the city
of Starke for the high electric
rates they impose on.us.
It particularly bothers me
that the city of Starke makes a
profit on their distribution of
electricity to'the residents and
uses that profit to fund other
functions of city government.
Many other small cities do not
have utility profits to combine
with muni tp~i -taxesand"other
revenue. sources t, conduct
city business. They seem to be
doing fine without milking
their residents with over-priced
electric bills. And, quite a few
municipal and other electricity
suppliers are run as a not-for-
profit business. I do not
understand why the City of
Starke must make a profit on
electricity sales to enable the
city to perform its
governmental duties.
On the other hand, as I look
over my June bill, I noted that
our water/sewage portion of
the utility bill was $65, or
$2.17 per day. And, I think we
are one of the homes that has a
septic tank and gets nothing
for the sewage disposal fees


imposed. It might even cost us
around $5,000 to hookup with
the sewer system, 'if it ever
comes to our neighborhood.
Our actual electric bill in
June was about $184 including
the fuel adjustment. That
amounts to about $6.13 per
day. Just consider, for that
small daily cost, my house was
air-conditioned, food kept cold
or frozen and cooked for
meals, lights worked, all the
electronics we can't live
without kept us entertained,
and the clothes washer/dryer
kept us in good attire. What a
bargain!
We spend more than $6 for
lunch at a fast-food joint. A
couple hours at the movies will
cost $6 each. A six-pack of
beer costs about $6, not to
mention a pack of.name-brand
cigarettes. And don't.forget,
less than two gallons 'of gas
will, cost you that same $6.
What a bargain we get for our
electric service dollars. There
really is no reason to complain
k about the actual cost per day of
electricity in the United States.
It just irks me that the city of
Starke is making a profit on
the deal. and the cost could be
somewhat lower, as it is
elsewhere.

Crosby Lake

Adopt a
homeless pet
Dear Editor:
Our local community animal
shelters are filled with many
cats, dogs, kittens and puppies
in need of loving permanent
homes. These are beautiful,
healthy animals that have been
cast away by"people who could
no longer care for them.
Many of these animals once
lived in homes, but now they
exist behind bars, while others
face certain death because of
the serious problem of dog and
cat overpopulation.
There are two ways that our
community can help end this
cycle of pet overpopulation
and death. The most important
is having our pets spayed or
neutered. The other way is to
adopt a homeless dog or cat
from a local animal shelter..
Most sheltered animals are
given their shots and are
spayed or neutered before they
are adopted out.
Please help us make our
world a better place. Visit our
local animal shelter and save a
life by adopting your next pet.

Progressives: A
clear and
,present danger
to America
Dear Editor:
How many more times will
Obama get away.with scaring
seniors? Every time he wants
to push something through
Congress, he,tries the fright
game. America, it is time you
stop falling for the Democratic
scare tactics. If the government
chooses to not pay. Social
Security and the disabled, it
will be a death nill for the
progressives. The government
takes in enough to pay for
these programs.
All this despot of a president
wants to do is keep draining
money from the. very people
who create jobs. His
redistribution of money will
kill America and reduce the
standard of living. It is time
people learn to stop being so
deperidant on this corrupt
government. We have a duty to
our elderly and disabled and

Most of all, we need to stop
this idea the government is all
things to all people. It is
bankrupting us. If you want
socialism, move to Europe.
This is America, the home of
the free 'and brave. It is time
we start acting like the free
people we are. We need less
government, not more. We
need the freedom to chart our
own course and a free market
place. Our forefathers would
be ashamed of us all for
allowing the government to be
this oppressive. It is too big
and spends way too much. The
jobs will never come back here
if we do not get the
progressives out of
government.
We are regulated to death.

freedoms have been eroded by
an out-of-control, nanny
government made up of
progressive elites. People,
stand up before you find
yourselves completely under

really worth it to be on
government care if you giye up
your self worth?
This is a great country. We
can, through churches, take
care of our own people until
jobs pick up. This big, bloated
government is not the answer.
It is a death of freedom and
freewill. God is the answer;
not government. It is your
God-given right to be free. It is
not the government's to give
or take.
You all know something is
very wrong. Washington is
sick, and it all can be traced
back to progressives who are
in both parties. Think before
you vote. The next election'
will be the chance to set things
right. Many of the past people
you sent to Washington do not
even listen to you. Just look at
healthcare. Most of our elected
officials could not even be
bothered to read it before they
voted for it. Join your local tea

Coaches with winning ways to be part


of Saturday's BHS football reunion


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor


One coach guided the school
to two state championships.
The one who preceded him
could have possibly won a
state title or two if the state
playoffs and championship
game were in existence.
David Hurse and Lennard
Register won a lot of games as
head football coaches at
Bradford High School. Move
past the wins-and the
losses-and you have two men
who formed lasting bonds with
the players they coached and
who look forward to renewing
acquaintances with those
players at the second annual
Bradford High School Kickoff
and Football Reunion this
Saturday, Aug. 6, beginning at
5 p.m. at the Florida National
Guard armory on Edwards
Road in Starke.
The event, which has an
admission of $15 at the door
and $12 in advance, is a
fundraiser for the BHS
Touchdown Club in its efforts
to support the 'football
program.
Hurse is all for that, but
believes the event's greater
significance is the opportunity
it has created for Tornadoes of
the past to stay in touch.
"I think it's more important
for the guys who competed in
the sport to come back and see
each other and renew old
friendships," Hurse said.
Hurse attended and spoke at
last year's inaugural event,
describing it as "fabulous." He
talked with people he hadn't
seen in as many as 50 years in
some cases.
"Last year was very
special," he said.
Hurse and Register,
however, do maintain contact
with many of their former
players, with Register saying,
"I get Christmas cards and
phone calls. They all say, 'You
made a man out of me.'"
Register related how one of
his former players wrote him a
letter, saying that outside of his
father, Register had the
greatest impact on his life.
The players of that era
thought a lot of their coaches
and .of.each other. It's one of
the reasons why the reunion
exists.
Register said that bond was
created through, hard work.
That hard work, in turn, led to
success on the field, which
helped create that bond as
well. Hurse said not many
small-town schools experience

the kind ot success Bradford
had at that time with state
championships in 1965 and
1966.
"They just want to carry that
tradition along and perpetuate
it," Hurse said of those
players.
Register was the Tornadoes'
head coach from 1955 through
1961. He never had a losing
season, with his 1960 and 1961
teams going 10-0-1 and 11-0,
respectively.
The 1960 team opened its
season with a 13-all tie against
Baker County before reeling
off 10 straight wins, which
included a 28-13 Strawberry
Bowl win over Baker County.
The Tornadoes outscored
opponents 210-82 in their 10
wins.
Bradford's 1960 season
extended the school's streak of
games without a loss to 17.
The 1961 team extended that
to 28 by winning all 11 of its
games. It wasn't until the
fourth game of that season that
an opponent even scored on
the Tornadoes, and that game
was a 57-7 win over
Monticello. Bradford had five
shutouts that year, outscoring
opponents 302-53 and capping
the season with a 21-12
Strawberry Bowl win over
Bolles.
Register said those teams
didn't have big players, but
what those players had were
big hearts. If the state playoff
format existed at that time,
Register said the '60 and '61
teams would have made their
marks and possibly won state

RICKS
Continued from Page 1B

to Vietnam in the early 1970s.
After six years of service to his
country, Jones sought to make
his childhood dream a reality.
He took a job managing a
roller skating rink in Lincoln,
Neb., before being hired by a
national chain to manage rinks
in New Jersey. Jones
ultimately bought the company
out.
The business brought some
noteworthy clientele. For
example, his rinks hosted
parties for the children of such
celebrities as Bruce
Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.
Roller skating rinks, though,
became less popular over time.
The creation of roller blades
has people skating outdoors,
while other forms of
entertainment, such as
computers and video games,
occupied children's time.
"Roller rinks became less in
number," Jones said. "When I
started in the roller skating
industry, there were
approximately 2,700 roller
rinks in the country. Now,
there's probably, I believe,
600."
A changing real' estate
climate in New Jersey was
what ultimately caused Jones


to decide it was time to retire.
He hopped into a motor home
and did some traveling, but
Jones said retirement at the age
of 52 wasn't what he wanted.
Thus, his first foray into the
restaurant business.
Jones found a restaurant in
Tinton Falls, NJ., that had
closed. He and a partner
bought the building and
opened CJ Montana's, which
is still in business today. Jones,
though, eventually sold out his
interest and went back out on
the road in his motor home.
He traveled to Florida after
retiring from the roller skating
business, and did so again after
selling his interest in CJ
Montana's.
"I came through. Starke to
the KOA Campground on my
way to Gold Head Branch
(State Park)," Jones said. "I
fell in love with Starke."
Jones, who is a member of
First United Methodist Church
of Starke and the local VFW,
said he liked several things
about Starke. There -were no
big box stores. There was one
small theater as opposed to
gigantic movieplexes.
More than anything, though,
Jones fell in love with the
people of Starke and the
surrounding area. He liked the
fact that Bradford County
Sheriff Gordon Smith took the
time to volunteer for the


Salvation Army and ring the
bell during the organization's
annual Christmastime kettle
drive. He liked the friendliness
of those he bumped into on the
street.
"I found that walking on
Call Street, it was, 'Good
morning. How are you today?
Nice weather we're having.'
At the post office, it seems like
everybody greets you on the
steps," Jones said. "In New
Jersey, it's not that life. (Here),
it's a connection with the
general public that a small
-town has.
"I can honestly say that
whether you're an outsider or a
local person, the town is
receptive to people."
In turn, Jones, as you might
expect, is receptive of those
who enter Rick's. He makes it
a point to talk to the majority
of the restaurant's patrons at
some point during their visit.
"I would say I visit over 90
percent of my diners," Jones
said. "I have that Northern
veboseness. I definitely talk a
lot. I guess that just goes with
my character."
By greeting and chatting
with customers, Jones can tend
to any issues that may arise. If
a diner would like his or her
meal to be more spicy, or
thinks the meal is too salty,
Jones said he will have the
meals remade.
"In a chain restaurant, you
don't get that," he said. "At a
national chain, what comes out
of the kitchen is what you get.
At Rick's, you're dealing with
Rick. You go to a chain in any
of the big cities or to the big
restaurants, you don't know
who you're dealing with."
Really, taking care of diners
in a restaurant is the same as
tending to customers at a roller
skating rink.
"It's not like a normal retail
business where you sell a
product, they go out the door,
and they take it home and use
it," Jones said. "When people
are dining in the restaurant,
you have to make sure the
guest is taken care of from the
minute they walk into the
building to when they leave,
f


Rick's is located on Call Street in downtown Starke on the east side of the railroad:
tracks.


which may be an hour or two
hours later.
"The same in the roller
skating business. You had to
make sure everything was just
right for the guests at the time.
That's something I believe
very strongly in."
CJ Montana's did not offer
Jones the chance to be as
personable with customers.
Though the restaurant was
similar in size to Rick's, it
would play host to 400 diners
on a given night, Jones said. At
.Rick's, he may see 50 diners
on a given night.
"To my. liking, it's a much
more personal atmosphere
when you, have 50 diners,"
Jones said. "I can pull up a
.chair and sit down and talk to
guests at the table."
You can chat with Jones and
dine at Rick's from 4 p.m.
until approximately 11 p.m.
Monday, Wednesdays,
Thursday, Fridays and
Saturday, though the
restaurant stays open a little
later on weekends. The
restaurant opens at 10 a.m. on
Sunday so diners can take

advantage of the Egglicious
special.
Rick's will begin opening
for lunch after Labor Day.
The restaurant is closed on
Tuesday.
If you're looking for a
dining experience he terms as
"casual nice," Jones invites
you.to give Rick's a try. You
may try the flank steak or
shrimp with grits, which seem
to be two of the more popular
menu items, or you may deicde
you want that $25 Argus-beef
filet mignon.
"For people looking for a
nice meal, a few dollars more
that they may pay at Rick's is
not an issue," Jones said.
"Rick's is not double the cost
(of other restaurants). It's not a
fancy restaurant. It's a nice,


casual dining atmosphere with
reasonable prices, much lower
than those found in chain-
dining restaurants : in
Gainesville or Jacksonville,
and it supports the local
economy."
Chances are, if you dine at a
restaurant in one of those other
cities, a train isn't going to roll
right past the building. It may
be noisy for a little while, but
Jones thinks it adds its own
special touch.

"It gives you a nostalgic feel
when you're in the building
and the train does go by," he
said. "The whole building feels
the vibration, and it has
withstood that for a couple
hundred years now with no
issues with the structure."

REUNION
Continued from Page 7B

the Tornadoes didn't beat
during that span was
Suwannee, which tied
Bradford 7-7 in '66.
Those are the only football
state championships in
Bradford's history, though
.Hurse believes a neutral field
would've given the school a
third in 1985.
"I guarantee we would have
(won another title)," Hurse
said, referring to what might
have been if conditions were
different. The '85 squad
played Bartow for the state
championship on Bartow's
home field, losing 28-20.
It was the only loss in a 12-1
season that saw the Tornadoes
outscore opponents 322-77.
Bradford shut out six of its
opponents that season with
Mike Sexton at the helm as
defensive coordinator. Three
seasons later, Sexton coached
an even stingier unit that
allowed two touchdowns all
season. Opponents scored a
total of 25 points against
Bradford that '88 season.
Sexton, who began coaching
at Bradford in 1965 as an
offensive line coach, will be
the keynote speaker at
Saturday's reunion.
"Mike Sexton, to me,-is one
of the most outstanding
coaches the state has ever


had," Register said.
Hurse said the players
respected and loved Sexton,
who had the knack for getting
the most of his players'
abilities.
"You give him any talent at
all, and he will make and mold
them into the best," JI-rse
said.
Also participating in the
reunion is current Bradford
head coich Derek Chipoletti,
who admitted it is an honor to
be asked to be a part of the
Scarlet and Gray history.
Chipoletti said it means a lot
that former -players and'


coaches are willing to help the
Touchdown Club raise funds
that will benefit the players of
today.
"It makes it a special thing,"
Chipoletti said.
It's also nice to have some
legendary coaches to lean on.
"It's just-a great resource,
Chipoletti said. "I try to take as
much advantage of it as I can."
Chipoletti said coaches such
as Register, Hurse and Sexton
are the examples; not just
because of the success they
helped orchestrate on the field,
but because of the young men
they helped create. Many of
those former players are now


pillars of the community,
Chipoletti said.
When it's all said and done,
Chipoletti said that's what
coaches want-to have young
men go on to be productive
citizens, husbands and fathers
when they' hang up their
jerseys and cleats. Register,
Hurse and Sexton, Chipoletti
said, helped create such men.
"They did it right,"
Chipoletti said. "Their records
prove that, but it's not only the
records, but the young men
who came through those
programs."
Due to limited seating, those
interested in attending the BHS
