UC approves contract to monitor old landfill


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer


Jones Edmunds and Associ-
ates, Inc., of Gainesville was ap-
proved Aug. 15 to continue pro-
viding engineering services to
Union County in relation to the
old'landfill for fiscal year 2011-
2012.
Jones. Edmunds provides
monitoring services and testing
that is required by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection. The contract for the
coming fiscal year, which be-
gins in October, totals $31,500
for monitoring. Jones Edmunds
will inspect the old landfill every
month and conduct a monthly
check of the gases being emit-
ted. In addition, the company
will test the groundwater every
six months in the 15 monitoring
wells located at the landfill.

The report the company.will
submit to both the county and
DEP is required by the state and
the county could face stiff fines if
the monitoring and the report are
not completed correctly.
Jones Edmunds has monitored
the old Union County landfill.
since 2008 and Jonathan Ed-
munds told the commission Aug.
15 that the company has returned
approximately $12,000 to the


county since that time in fee sav-
ings.
In addition to the monitoring
services, the coming year will
also require the county to renew
its permit from DEP for the old
landfill. When the county closed
the old landfill in 1997 and co-
operated to open the New River
Tri-County Landfill, DEP told
commissioners that they would
have to monitor the old landfill
atleast until the year 2017, a pe-
riod of 20 years. The county had
to close the old landfill because
it had been constructed before
environmental protection laws
went into affect and it did not
meet DEP requirements.

. During that required monitor-
ing period however, DEP also
issues the county a permit every
five years to allow.the existence
of the old landfill. Without the
permit, the county would face
fines and even the possible re-
moval of the old landfill at a
tremendous cost to the county.
The current DEP permit ex-
pires on Nov. 4 of this year and
will have to be renewed. Jones
Edmunds also provides the en-
gineering expertise necessary
to apply for the permit and the
county voted to have them do so
for a fee of $11.360.


EMS to get cardiac
monitors
The county commission voted
5-0 to approve the purchase of
three advanced life support car-
diac monitors-defibrillators, one
for each rescue unit operated by
Union County Emergency Medi-
cal Services. The monitors have
the capability of sending heart
rate and rhythm information di-
rectly to the hospital.
EMS Director Chris Drum
said' these monitors are highly
durable and user-friendly. Total
cost of the three monitors is ap-
proximately $61,842, but Drum
said EMS has a $25,000 grant
that will reduce the department's
cost to approximately $37,000.
In other business and/or dis-
cussion, the county commission:
Approved a measure to allow
the town of Worthington Springs.
access to the county's fuel pumps
and to set up a method of billing
the town for the fuel it uses.
Approved the interlocal
agreement with the Florida
Crown Workforce Board. The
state requires each county to
provide certain job services to
its citizens including assisting
with the application process for
unemployment. Florida Crown
provides those services to four
counties in this area at a cost that


is less than Union County would
pay if it tried to operate the re-
quired service on its own. Florida
Crown provides job training, job
placement services and benefits
services to Union, Columbia,
Dixie and Gilchrist counties. All
costs for the services provided
by Florida Crown are funded
through state and federal grants.
Voted 5-0 to continue county
maintenance on Frank Mann
Road, provided the property
owners along the private road as-
sign rights of way to the county.
The commission is looking into
the best way to obtain the ap-
propriate rights of way so that
county crews can legally work
on the road.
Heard from Drum that
UCEMS is continuing its grant-
funded project of providing a
safe way for people like diabet-
ics to dispose,of medical needles.
EMS provides a "sharps" con-
tainer, which the patient turns in
when its full. EMS then disposes
of it properly. If the needles are
disposed of with household gar-
bage, they wind up in the landfill
and pose a health risk to a lot of
people, Drum said. For more in-
formation, call UC EMS at 386-
496-3839.

goes back



to school


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

On Aug 25, With the exception
of kindergarten, students came*
pouring into the Union County
High; Lake Butler Middle; and
Lake Butler Elementary schools
with large crowds and traffic as
anticipated.
Children could be seen every-
where with their backpacks and
school supplies, looking for their
classrooms, with excitement and
nervous looks on their faces.
Standing outside of Union
County High School, talking
about their future career ideas,
were Laquile Jones and Royyell
Stephens. Walking toward her
bus was Shelbe Hernandez. She
expressed her excitement to be
in the eighth grade, a "senior" in
Lake Butler Middle. Kobi Mor-
ton stood along the brick wall at
Lake Butler Elementary, excited
to see all of his old friends again
at LBES. Kyra Castleberry just
smiled and said, "It's hot but I


love first grade."
S.R. 121 experienced increased
traffic reaching from LBES to
LBMS. Traffic congestion also
formed beside and behind UCHS.
Parents parked their cars on the
grass where ever they could find
a spot and walked their children
to their classrooms. School staff
posted in hallways and walkways
providing directions and infor-
mation to parents and students in
hopes of reducing confusion.
Union County Sheriffs Office
(UCSO) deputies were posted at
surrounding areas close to the
school. Crossing guards took ex-
tra precaution while helping chil-
dren across the streets, aware of
the excessive traffic. UCSO re-
minds all drivers to be aware of
children, not just in cross walks
but in all areas surrounding the
school.
The schools were lenient with
the students for the first two days
on classroom arrival times due to

See SCHOOL page 2A


Crack down on


child restraint


use in progress


The Union County Sheriffs
Office announced its continued
involvement in the nationwide
"Click It or-Ticket" campaign.
UCSO spokesman Lt. Lyn Wil-
liams said all parents and drivers
who transport children'or teens
should be aware that this crack-
down also involves children un-
der the age of 18.
"The facts are simple, in a car
crash you and any underage pas-
sengers are much more likely to
be killed if you are not wearing
your seat belt," said Williams.
What exactly is the Seat Belt
Law in Florida?..
Seat belt laws apply to all
cars, pickup trucks and vans
manufactured since 1968 and op-
erating on Florida roads.
All passengers in the front
seat must wear a seat belt (re-
gardless of age).
All passengers under 18 must
wear a seat belt, regardless of
where they are sitting.
Children three and younger
must be secured in a federally
approved child-restraint seat.
Children ages 4-5 must be
secured by either a federally ap-
proved child-restraint seat or
safety belt.
The driver is responsible for
buckling up all children and can'
be cited for failing to do so.

Florida is a "Primary" Seat
Belt Law State, which means
that under Florida's current laws
anyone can be stopped by law
enforcement and cited with a
non-moving violation simply for


not wearing a seat belt or for'not
having a child buckled in a car
seat or restrained by a seat belt
(depending on age).
Those found guilty and cited
for not wearing a seatbelt in
Union County will have to pay
a $98 traffic citation and those
found guilty of violating a child
restraint law will have to pay
$148 per offense.
Rear-facing child restraint
seats should never be used in the
front seat if the vehicle contains
an active passenger-side airbag.
Although not mandated, the saf-
est place for a child of any age
is in the back seat of the vehicle.
Although there are no specific
regulations, children between the
ages of four and eight-or weigh-
ing under 80 pounds-should sit
inma booster seat.
Union County deputies and
Florida Highway Patrol troopers
will be available throughout the
school zones and daycare facili-
ties to ensure parents and drivers
comply with the safety belt and
child restraint laws.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead said.
':t is one of our primary con-
cerns to look after the safety of
our citizens and children."
Enforcement action will in-
clude citations to the violators in
case of an adult driver or adult
passenger in the front seat and/or
citations issued to the driver of
an unrestrained minor under the
age of 18 within the vehicle.
If you have any further ques-
tions please'feel free to contact
UCSO at 386-496-2501.

Food plot field day planned


The University of Florida In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences and the Marion County
extension office are sponsoring a
food plot field day to teach prop-
erty owners the.best practices for
creating food plots for wildlife.
The field day is set for Fri-
day, Sept. 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 2
p.m. Registration is required by
Thursday, Sept. 8. The field day
will be held at the Blitch Planta-
tion House at 13200 N.W. 110th
Ave. in Reddick.
Learn how to attract deer and


other wildlife to your property
and keep them healthy at this
food plot field day. Seasonal
fluctuations in food supply and
poor nutritional quality of natural
vegetation can affect the health
of wildlife.
Food plots are large areas of
land (typically between one and
three acres) that are planted with
vegetation that is specifically
chosen to maximize the nutrients
wildlife receive. Properly plant-
ed and maintained food plots
supplement the animals' diet and


naturally compensate for defi-
ciencies.
Attendees at the field day will
learn from forest and forage ex-
perts and will visit successful
food plots to see how others have
completed a project of this type.

sion Service at 352-671-8700

dogs such as: accepting a
friendly stranger, sitting politely
for petting, walking through a


crowd, etc. Paws on Parole also
includes an Aftercare Network,
which is a group that will work
with adopting families and their.
dogs to help integrate the training
the dogs received.

their shots, is heartworm-free, is
microchipped, crate-trained and
has been spayed or neutered.

RMC donates school supplies for LBES students


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor


On Aug 24, Lake Butler Recep-
tion and Medical Center (RMC)
staff visited Lake Butler Elemen-
tary school to provide lunch for
the faculty and staff as well as a
variety of school supplies to be,
used-in the LBES classrooms by
the soon-to-be-arriving students.

Prior to this event, staff from
RMC brought in items to be
donated based on the school's
supply lists and expressed need.
More than $2,000 worth of school
supplies were collected and do-
nated to LBES including but not
limited to: large pink erasers,
boxes of Kleenex tissues, spi-
ral notebook pads, composition
pads, pencil boxes, wide-ruled
packs of paper, three-ring bind-
ers, two-pocket folders, divider
inserts, bottles of Germ-X, boxes
of baby wipes, Clorox wipes,
wet wipes, botanical disinfect-
ing wipes, cans of Lysol disin-
fectant, bottled glue, glue sticks,
rulers, scissors, multi-colored
highlighters, pencil sharpeners,
washable markers, crayons, me-
chanical pencils, colored pencils
and backpacks.
RMC staff members greeted all
LBES staff while serving lunch
and then sat down with a plate of
their own and joined them. The
menu included roast beef, pota-
toes and gravy, green beans, a
roll and cake, with a choice of
tea, canned drinks or water. The
luncheon was held in the LBES
library due to the cafeteria floor
being waxed. Between the tables
full of school supplies, the LBES


(Back row, I-r) LBES Principal Stacey Rimes, RMC Warden Brian Riedl, Rebecca Wolfson, Verona Deloach, Kristyn Moore, Denise Ricks, Alison
Jones, Jacquie Moseley, Assistant Warden of Operations Donnell Robinson, Assistant LBES Principal Christie Perez, Assistant Warden of
Programs Paul Kish and Lt. Brett Dukes. (Front row, I-r) Amber Rahn, Doreen DiMauro, Mary Anne O'Steen, Kelly Dukes, Cristi Whitehead, Lynn
Cannon, Rhonda Clyatt, Brooke Barber and Maria Kish.


teachers and the RMC staff, the
space may have been limited but
the enthusiasm and conversation
was not.
According to LBES staff,
the need for school supplies in-
creases each year. School supply
lists are given to each child at the
beginning of the school year but
with the economy in its current
state, the ability to provide these
items varies per child. The do-
nations provided will help more
than 51 teachers and countless
students.

Attending from RMC were
Officer Brian Barton, Sgt. Ken
Johns, Major James Barton, Ma-
jor John Siter, Lt. Christopher
Dukes, Assistant Warden of Op-
erations Donnell Robinson, As-
sistant Warden of Programs Paul


Kish, Warden Brian Riedl and
staff assistant Stasi Mckenzie.
Some of the attending LBES
faculty and staff were: Principal
Stacey Rimes, Assistant Princi-
pal Christie Perez, Denise Ricks,
Jacquie Moseley, Amber Rahn,
Mary Anne O'Steen, Tammy
Wilkerson, Lynn Canon, Rebec-
ca Wolfson, Doreen DiMauro,
Kelly Dukes, Rhonda Clyatt,
Maria Kish, Cristi Whitehead,
Brooke Barber, Kristyn Moore,
Jason Griffis, Verona DeLoach
and Alison Jones.

Warden Riedl said he was
proud to see the contributing
RMC staff exhibiting continued
support, generosity and the will-
ingness to help make the com-
munity better. Riedl said his hope
was that the donations LBES re-


ceived would help supplement
some of the classroom costs and
demands for these items.
Riedl said "The supplies we
were able to bring down here
today serve to illustrate just how
much the staff of Reception and
Medical Center care about this
community. It makes me proud
to call RMC home."
Assistant Warden Kish said,
"I believe that a child should
have the opportunity to come
to school and focus on learning
and not be concerned with hav-
ing the most basic of supplies.
If these supplies enable a child
to become an active participant
in their class and perhaps boost
their confidence and self-esteem
a little, then it will kave been a
huge success."
Assistant Warden Robinson


said, "We take being a partner
in this community very seri-
ously and work hard to show
this through things like today's
supply drive. Our hope is that by
giving these teachers the tools
they need, we can make their
jobs just a little bit easier."

Supplies were distributed
among teachers and the back-
packs were filled with supplies
for a list of children who need-
ed them. Supplies were given
discretely so that the self-con-
fidence of each child would be
heightened, not diminished.
RMC staff expressed their
ongoing mission to give back to
the community and their hope to
nMake a difference in the lives and
educational experiences of the
LBES students.


Warden Riedl said, "Some of
the staff of RMC have children
who attend Lake Butler schools
and/or have family who work
for the school system. We are
not just a prison located within
the community, we a part of the
community."
Warden Riedl said that his
hopes were that the donations
LBES received would help sup-
plement some of the classroom
costs and demands for these
items." If one child was helped,
it was worth it," he said.

LBES staff said they were
grateful for the supplies donated
and the amount of support shown
by RMC's staff. They also gave
thanks to all of the RMC staff
that attended for the lunch that
was provided.

What Determines Right?

We are not right merely because we think we are. We are not
right because we feel we are. We are not right because someone
in a "position of authority" says we are. Right or wrong is
determined by laws and standards, not by feelings, "think so's,"
or good intentions.
We are right only when we walk by God's standard, the Bible
(Colossians 3:17). In Matthew 7:21-23, Christ said that on the
Day of Judgment many who claimed to be His followers would
.be condemned to eternal damnation. The standard of'right and
wrong by which we will be judged is God's word. "He who
rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which
judges him the word that I have spoken will judge Him in the
last day" (John 12:48).

Carter's Fried Chicken celebrates one year of operation in LB


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor
On Aug 19, Carter's Fried
Chicken of Lake Butler held a
celebration for the restaurant's
one-year anniversary.
North Florida Regional Cham-
ber of Commerce members at-
tended for the celebration and
the cutting of the red ribbon. At-
tehding guests included but were
not limited to; Starke City Com-
missioner Travis Woods, the city
of Lake Butler's Kia Page, North
Florida Regional Chamber of
.Commerce representatives Pam
Whittle, Susan Norman and Jen-
nifer Clark, and Linda Johns of
the city of Starke.
Carter's grand opening in Lake
Butler was on Aug. 20, 2010.
The idea for the restaurant was
the brain child of owner Melissa
Holloway, with the assistance
of her four brothers. Holloway
said, "We were all sitting around
watching a football game and I
asked them to help me come up
with a new business venture."
One of them suggested a Carter's
Chicken, and, with that, the idea
for the Lake Butler restaurant we
know was born.
Holloway began working on
her business venture around
Christmas 'of2009. In January of
2010, a location was chosen, the
former CVS Pharmacy building
in Lake Butler. With the help of


two of her brothers, Mark Wil-
liams and Greg Williams, both
of Lake Butler,.the Carter's idea
became a reality.
The building had more than
8,000 square feet, however some
of the space available was set
aside for future additions. The
restaurant was designed with
available seating for 75 patrons.
Several large screen TVs were
placed throughout the dining
room area to broadcast news and
sports for entertainment.
The restaurant was anticipated
to be opened in June of 2010,
however an injury and a car acci-
dent involving the contractor and
the person responsible for order-
ing equipment pushed the open-
ing to the end of August 2010.
Carter's Fried Chicken is actu-
ally a franchised chain of restau-
rants in Georgia that were started
by Mr. and Mrs. Tidwell Carter.
The Lake Butler Carter's was the
very first venture in Florida.
A unique fact of the Carter's
chain is that the food is always
kept fresh, not frozen. Holloway
frequented a Carter's in Georgia
as a child, just down the street
from where she lived. Remem-
bering the quality of food and
service she experienced as a
child, she re-created that quality
and service for the town of Lake
Butler.
Holloway said that customers
should not expect Carter's to be

run like a regular fast food fran-
chise. Carter's food is fresh-not i',.'
like others that prepare frozen .
food, keeping it under heat lamps,
often hours at a time. With this,
the wait time for food may be a -
little longer but the food quality .
is better. 11111
Carter's has become a known
restaurant in Lake Butler. With. j
reasonably priced items on the
menu and friendly service, more '
years of service are sure to come.
Carter's is located at 225 W.
Main St. in Lake Butler.


Library tries to help students


BY GINNY BIRD
Special to the Times
As the new school year begins,
students' and parents' lives can be
simpler and their efforts more suc-
cessful by using their local librar-
ies.
Florida public libraries provide
electronic resources, books, and
assistance that can help students
succeed in their schoolwork.
The Division of Library and In-
formation Services of the Florida
Department of State partners with


local libraries and provides a com-
prehensive foundation of resourc-
es called the Florida Electronic
Library (FEL) that is available to
all Floridians. These libraries and
the FEL support K-12 students and
schools on evenings, weekends,
and holidays, and complement
services provided by school media
specialists.
This is a good time for students
and parents tp make a note of the
ways public libraries can help
them during the year. ahead. It is
also a good idea to check your lo-


cal library for a schedule of events
and programs.
These are exciting times as K-12
students-indeed all Floridians-
are challenged to master the 21st
Century learning and information
skills necessary for success in to-
day's world. Florida public librar-
ies are prepared and ready to make
K-12 students' and parents' lives
easier and help students succeed!

The University of Florida
Speech and Hearing Clinic and
the Gainesville chapter of the
Hearing Loss Association of
Florida will offer "Living with
Hearing Loss," a series of free

cent of these people currently
use them, said Patricia B. Kricos,
Ph.D., a professor in the College
of Public Health and Health Pro-
fessions' department of speech,
language and hearing sciences.
The education series includes
four free classes: "Coping with
Hearing Loss," "A Thousand

Difficult Listening Situations,"
and "What Other Help is There?"
Classes are held on Fridays from
1-2:30 p.m. at the United Way

north of Keystone Heights. As
such, Smith and his family live
inside the 2,366-acre park.
The surroundings and the

"Parks are great places to go

would go to the park at least
twice a month on church
outings. Then, at the age of 15,
he got a job working at Florida
Caverns.
"The rangers at Florida
.,erns had a big impact on
me as a kid," Smith said. "I
remember Frank Strickland,
who had been there for quite a
while. He did a cave tour. His
cave tour really hit home. He
was really, really passionate
about what he was doing."
When Smith was looking for
a job after his.military service,
Florida Caverns was seeking to
hire a ranger. He applied for
the position and was hired.
"It 'wa~almost like it was too
good to be true," Smith said of
working at the very park he
was so familiar with.
That was in 2003.'Smith was
eventually promoted to park
services specialist before
moving to Gold Head to
become assistant park
manager.
Smith had the opportunity to
visit Gold Head prior to taking
the job there. The manager at
Florida Caverns was invited to
attend Gold Head's annual
Yesterdays Festival. He, in
turn, invited Smith and his
family to accompany him.
One of the things that
impressed Smith the most
about Gold Head was that it,
like Florida Caverns, is a
Civilian Conservation Corps
park. The CCC, under
President Franklin D.
Roosevelt, was created in 1933
as a way to combat
unemployment during the
Great Depression. Members of
one of the CCC companies,
along with CCC youth, began
developing what would
become Gold Head in 1935.
Gold Head was officially
dedicated on April 15, 1939.
.It was a welcomed
opportunity to be able to move
from one CCC park to another
in accepting the assistant
manager's position at Gold
Head.
"To be able to work at
another CCC park that offered
some different things was just
a blessing in my eyes," Smith
said.
It's always a great feeling to
tell park visitors about the
history of the CCC and what it
did at Gold Head. In fact, nine
of the 16 rental cabins at the
park were constructed by the
CCC.
"For something to be
constructed that long ago and
to be in the condition they are
today is just amazing," Smith
said. "They've been utilized by
people since the '30s."
Aside from being one of
only nine CCC parks in the
state, Gold Head offers visitors
an environment of rolling
sandhills, which are remnants
of dunes formed over
thousands of years by rising
and lowering sea levels. There
is also a ravine, formed by
seepage springs, that is
approximately 65 feet deep
and 1.5 miles in length.
"We have Shuler Lake.
which is one of the oldest lakes
in the state of Florida.
estimated at 24,000 years old."
Smith said.
Visitors to the park have the
chance to see various wildlife.
including American kestrels.
bald eagles, white-tailed deer.
turkeys. gopher tortoises.
pocket gophers and Smith's
favorite, fox squirrels.
"They are really neat to
watch," Smith said. "You will
see one on the side of the road.
It will see you coming and
kind of run to the closest tree.
go up may be 6 feet and just
kind of peek around the corner
to see what you're doing.

New local doctor brings unique experiences from abroad


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
She had the chance to travel
and take part in some unique
experiences, but now Dr.
Jessica Miller is ready to settle
in one place and establish a
lasting relationship with
patients.
Miller, a family medicine
practitioner, is the newest
addition to Village Doctors in
Keystone Heights. She will see
patients in Village Doctors'
new family medical center on
115 N. Lawrence Blvd. beside
Walgreens.
A former Army Reservist
who eventually went on to
serve with the Navy, Miller
had the opportunity put her
medical expertise to use in
places such as Afghanistan,
Pakistan and Japan.
Now, though, she is looking
forward to establishing a
practice here in the States and
not move from place to place
because of military
commitments.
"It's very exciting to have a
practice," Miller said. "I
enjoyed my experience with
the military, but as a family
doc, it's difficult to meet new
patients every three years. I'm
ready to keep the patients that I
have."
Miller previously taught
residents at Naval Air Station
Jacksonville. She, her husband,
Greg, and .their -daughters,
Kylee and Casey, moved to the
area three years ago after
living in Okinawa, Japan,
where Miller practiced
medicine at a Marine Corps
base.
Asked if it was hard to make
the transition from living in
Japan to living in the United
States again, Miller said it
wasn't, simply because she's
looking forward to no more
moves.
"Some people like to move
every few years," she said. "I
have too much stuff for that. I
guess we'd kind of like to set
down roots. My children are 9
and 11 now. We'd like to see
them in the same school for a
while."
Miller said her daughters,
though, probably wouldn't
have minded staying in Japan.
"They really liked it
(there)," Miller said, "but the
girls really enjoy the friends
they've mt here." .-
The fact that Miller has had
the chance to travel is,
perhaps, no surprise. Her
father served in the Peace
Corps and traveled to Brazil.
She has siblings who have
traveled to places such as
Central America, Africa and
India.
Neither .is. .it much of a
surprise, really, that Miller
went into the medical field.
She admitted she always
wanted to. Doing so via the


military, though, is another
story.
"I had not envisioned myself
in the military before (joining
the Army Reserves)," Miller
said.
Miller had a roommate who
was going to talk to a recruiter,-
so she accompanied her. Miller
said she liked what she heard
about the military and how it
could assist her going through
school.
"I initially went to the Air
Force (recruiter)," said Miller,
who was 19 at the time. "Even
then, I wanted to be in, the
medical field. They couldn't
guarantee me anything in
medical, so I went down the
hall to talk to the Army
recruiter. That's sort of how 1
made the decision."
Miller worked as a medic
and then as an enlisted nurse
before deciding she wanted to
be a physician. The
Milwaukee, Wisc., native went
to the Medical College of
Wisconsin, graduating in 2002.
From there, she went to Camp
Pendleton, a Marine Corps
base located ; between Los
Angeles and San Diego.
"That's where I did my
residency, on the base," Miller
said. "I saw a lot of families
and delivered a lot of babies
during that time.
"It was great. I love the
Marines. They're great. It kind
of influenced. me. My next
duty station was also with the


Marines."
Upon completion of her
three-year residency, Miller
and her husband had an eye on
going overseas-to be "more
adventurous," as she put it.
She requested to go to Europe,
but was asked how she'd like
to go to Japan instead. A
Marine Corps base is located
on Okinawa.
"I had never been (to Japan)
before," Miller said. "My
husband does a lot of martial
arts and stuff, so he was real
excited to go. I was a little
apprehensive, but lots of
people told me Okinawa's
nice. We both scuba dive, and
Okinawa's a tropical island
that's surrounded by a coral
reef. That had some appeal.
"We ended up having just a
wonderful time. The Japanese
are very open to children. My
kids, at the time we went there,
were 3 and 5."
Miller admitted she didn't
become as proficient in the
Japanese language as she
would've liked. Her husband,
as a musician, had a better ear
for picking up the langugae
quicker than she did, she said,
while her children would
correct her on her accent, etc.
"My children went to a
Japanese-American preschool
to begin with, so I actually
went to classes with my oldest
when she had Saturday classes
to pick up the language,"
Miller said. "Then we'd do

tapes and stuff like that."
The family did have some
time to do some sightseeing,
particularly in mainland Japan.
They went to Tokyo Disney,
which looks just like Disney in
the States, Miller said.
One of the attractions she
enjoyed the, most was
Okinawa's Peace Memorial
Park.
"The Peace Park in Okinawa
is something I would strongly
encourage all Americans to
see, as well as the Japanese,"
Miller said. "It's a combined
effort by the U.S. government
and the Japanese government
to memorialize the war that
went on there. The war was
particularly devastating to the
Okinawan people.
"I thought that was a real
powerful sight."
Aside from working in
Japan, Miller also visited
Pakistan and Afghanistan on
two different missions.
In 2002, Miller deployed
with the Marines to Shinkiari,
Pakistan, following an
earthquake that measured more
than 5 on the Richter Scale.
"We did humanitarian relief
for about four months," Miller
said. "We stayed there through
most of the winter to make
sure the displaced refugees
were well taken care of."

STARKE HOME
&
PATIO SHOW


It was an emotional
experience, especially seeing
how children were affected,
Miller admitted. While she
was there, there was a
"horrendous" fire because of
the open fires in tents as
people tried to keep warm.
"You just kind of focus on
the mission," Miller said.
"Usually, you're pretty good at
focusing on the mission, but
there were times when it
became really devastating."
In 2009, Miller went to
Afghanistan for seven months,
embedded with the Afghan
National Army and working
with physicians at the Afghan
National Army's northern
regional hospital.
"I was going over there as a
family doc to mentor and teach
surgeons, specialists and
internal medicine doctors,"
Miller said. "It was a little
daunting at first, but they were
really receptive and very
appreciative."
Though she was doing the
mentoring and giving lectures,
Miller learned quite a bit
herself. She saw things in
Afghanistan that doctors in the
States don't see anymore, such
as measels and polio, and
things the United States has
never seen, such as
leishmaniasis, a parasitice
disease caused by sandfly
bites.
"They taught me as well,"


Miller said.
Moving back to the U.S. and
to Florida was a bit of 4 new
experience as well for Miller.
"I -had been to the Gulf
Coast quite a bit," she said.
"but I hadn't been to the
Jacksonville area before we
moved out here. I love the
Gulf Coast, and I always
wanted to be somewhere
warmer than Wisconsin
anyway. California was a little
too pretentious for us, so we
were kind of looking at being
in the Southeast anyway."
Her home state of Wisconsin
is pretty and has friendly
people, Miller said. She will
not miss the cold weather.
though.
"The winters are definitely
nicer down here," she said. "I
get to brag about having citrus
trees in my backyard to my
family."
Miller likes the idea of
working in Keystone Heights,
saying, "I think, as a family
physician, you are kind of
drawn to not being in the (big)
city. If you want to practice-
family medicine, it's nice to be,
in a community like this."
Now, Miller looks forward
to meeting people in the
community and building
relationships that last longer
than three years or so. She has
moved quite a bit, but plans to
put down some roots.
"Come check us out," Miller
said. "We're here to stay."

-"They're really, really cool
to watch."
Gold Head 'presents. several
programs throughout the year,
including the aforementioned
Yesterdays Festival, which
takes place during the last
weekend of January every
year. A Family Fun Fest' is
held in May in which local
agencies are invited to the park
to meet people and educate
them about what the agencies
in question offer to the
community.
Moonlight hikes are popular,
and an October haunted hike
drew 1,000 people last year-
an increase of approximately
900 people from the previous.
year.
Smith said he was really
proud of the success of first-
year, week-long youth summer
camps that were held this year.
The first camp educated
children about prescribed fire,
while the second camp was a
ranger-led "Discover Nature"
program.
"It went fantastic," Smith
said. "We had a full house for
that program. We got a lot of
support from the local
community." "
Smith said he looks forward
to offering more summer
camps in the future as well as
increasing the membership of
the Friends of Gold Head
Branch State Park, which
sponsors the park's various
programs.
"We are a part of the
community," Smith said. "I
think it's important that we
offer things for the community
and let them know, 'Hey, we
are here. We support you. We
ask that you support us as
well.' That's the number-one
priority for us."
If you want to visit thepark
for more than a day, camping
is allowed, and there are, as
mentioned earlier, cabins


available for rent. Besides the
nine CCC cabins, there are five
block cabins that were
constructed in the '50s and two
more modern, larger and
ADA-accessible cabins.
Smith said one particular
type of cabin doesn't -seem to
be more popular than any of
the others.
"They all rent fairly
equally," he said.
Unlike visitors who rent
cabins for a weekend, a week
or perhaps even a month,
Smith lives on the premises as
park manager. Takiyah, his
wife of 12 years, and their
children- Chariyah, 11,
Charles III, 8, and Charleston,
7-all enjoy their home. In
fact, they are always wanting
to do something to help the
park, whether it's the children
wanting to go out and pick up
trash when Smith calls it a day
or all family members getting
involved with the park's
various programs.
"Last year, my kids wanted
to participate in the haunted
hike," Smith said. "They
dressed up. They were out
there haunting. My wife
volunteered and assisted with
the summer camps.
"They're always trying to
participate and show their
-support-and love of the park
service."
Though they live at Gold
Head, Smith and his family
enjoy visiting other parks
throughout the state. Florida
Caverns remains a favorite of
Smith's because of his history
there, but there is something at
each park that is enjoyable.
That's why Smith encourages.
anyone who has not visited the
state parks to do so. Whether
someone enjoys learning about
certain aspects of the state's
history or simply likes to
spend time on a beach, there is
a Florida park, that will be
appealing.
"That's one of the great
things about the parks," Smith
said. "We offer all those
things, and they are- really


close'by. If you were to go to
O'Leno, you would get that
same historical, rustic aspect
(as at Gold Head) because it's
a CCC park, and they have
CCC-constructed buildings.
You can go over to Talbot
State Park and appreciate the
beautiful beaches.
"I think there's something at
every state park that each
individual person would
appreciate."

Smith said the door to his

"It's. a blessing to have the
opportunity to live here and to
work here in a park, and to be
able to share how you feel and
your mission with guests,"
Smith said.


Tigers defeat Tornadoes



by 1 in defensive battle


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Special teams were not so
special for the Union County
football team last year, and
successful extra-point kicks
were nonexistent.
Maybe it was time for the
tide to turn as Carl
Alexander's PAT proved to be
the difference in a fierce
defensive battle that left the
Tigers standing with a 7-6
victory over Bradford in an
Aug. 25 preseason kickoff
classic in which the varsity
teams played three quarters.
Prior to the season, Union
head coach Ronny Pruitt talked
about the near misses that cost
his team several games last
year, including an extra point
and a field goal that each
barely missed the uprights.
Alexander's PAT against
Bradford was just good, but
that was good enough.
"That kick was about 2
yards inside the goal post,"
Pruitt said: "That's all it
takes."
Conversely, the Tornadoes
had a chance to tie the game
after quarterback Austin
Chipoletti's 4-yard touchdown
run with 34 seconds remaining
in the third quarter, but a low
snap and a possible deflection
resulted in a missed extra
point.
"That's our nemesis-
special teams," Bradford head
coach Derek Chipoletti said.
The Bradford defense held
the Tigers to minus-34 yards
after several sacks and other
tackles behind the line of
scrimmage, but Union's
defense was stout as well and
accounted for the Tigers' only
score as Kendall Wright
returned an interception for a
touchdown against Bradford
for the second straight year.
Wright's 70-plus-yard return,
with Alexander's PAT, put the
Tigers up 7-0 at the 4:59 mark
of the first quarter.
"He's a great player," Derek
Chipoletti said of Wright.
"They've got something
special in him."
Bradford's Austin Chipotetti
was l-of-6 passing, with his.
only completion covering just
3 yards.
"We've got some speed back
there (in the secondary),"
Pruitt said. "We wanted to get
them in a passing contest. We
felt like we could pick a couple
of them."
Derek Chipoletti said he was
disappointed that no one has
stepped up to be a playmaker
in the passing game and
replace graduated wide
receiver Tramaine Harris and


Josh Tyson (left) carries the ball for the Tigers as
Bradford's Lyndell Hampton gives chase.


tight end Ya'keem Griner.
However, he said the offensive
line was his team's biggest
problem.
"What I'm disappointed in is
that our strong point was
supposed to be our offensive
line," Chipoletti said. "We got
manhandled. They just
manhandled us up front."
Chipoletti, though, said he
did not want to take anything
away from the Union defense,


"That might be one of the
best defenses we'll see all
year," he said.
That defense, which allowed
85 yards, made its presence
felt right off the bat, dumping
Bradford running back Dexter
Clayton for a loss of 3 yards

scrimmage. Union linemen

Take chance on local food


As president of Blue Oven
Kitchens-a nonprofit kitchen
incubator serving north central
Florida-I would like to
express my gratitude to all of
the sponsors who provided
more than $9,000 in support of
our second annual Farm-to-
Restaurant Workshop and
Culinary Fair, which was held
Aug. 1. These donations came
from farmers, restaurants,
caterers, distributors, area
professionals (legal,
accounting, insurance,
marketing, public relations,
energy efficiency and business
consultants), nonprofits and
others.
This workshop was
organized by Blue Oven
Kitchens, Slow Food
Gainesville, the University of
Florida's IFAS Extension and
Buy Local North Central
Florida.
I am sharing information
'from the introductory speech I
delivered to our workshop
participants because I believe
this is of interest to our
community. It illustrates that
many stakeholders from a
variety of backgrounds and
professions are working
toward a more sustainable and
secure food system. I.also ask
for community support of
these efforts through active
Engagement and volunteerism;
demand for more local food in
area restaurants, catering and
Grocery stores; and through
donations, either in-kind or
morietary.
Our workshop-rexpanded
from last year by nearly
double-was full with an
alternates list.
The demand for
participation and the
generosity and excitement of
-our sponsors led me to believe
that our north central Florida
..reg;on is serious about local
food and its benefits.- For
whatever r ..soia you may
support the local food
movement, I would like to
offer some additional and more
stratospheric reasons as well as
a broader perspective on what
Swe are accomplishing together.
SMost of us are familiar with
the buzzwords "organic,"
"sustainable" and "local;" we
Share familiar with the trends
these words represent. There
are, however, important and
often latent undercurrents to
these ideas, such as food
security,, responsible
environmental practices, A la
sustainability, a healthy and
vibrant community and good
business sense.
Have you ever thought about
food security before? It is an
idea that-in the abundance
present in our grocery stores,
restaurants and distribution
houses-seems unchallenged,
something we have engineered
for ourselves in our wisdom,
but our foods have become
economy-of-scale
commodities on the global
market;i.4ur foodshed-that is,


looking at our food system as
ones looks at a watershed-has
become the world. Times
change, fuel prices rise,
markets fluctuate and
unsustainable agricultural
practices pollute and make our
soils anemic. Let me ask you,
how good is your business
model if fuel prices rise to $10
per gallon?
Louisiana has taken a
progressive stance toward its
foodshed and food security
after a main component of its
food economy--seafood--was
nearly leveled by the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Gov. 'Bobby Jindal of
Louisiana recently signed a bill
creating the Louisiana Buy
Local Purchase Program,
which gives eligible
restaurants a 4-percent
reimbursement of the cost of
using locally produced
products. The bill states "the
health, safety and welfare of
the people of (Louisiana) are
dependent upon the continued
encouragement, development,
growth and expansion of
Louisiana farmers and
agricultural products," that
"Louisiana residents rely on
Louisiana farmers and
agricultural processors as their
primary source of safe,
nutritional and affordable
food," and that "agricultural
industries are a major source
of employment."
In this time of economic,
food safety and job security
dilemmas, Louisiana is looking
within its own borders to
create its own security.
Can we, too, incentivize
local food purchasing as a
region, even as a state? Can we
do this, not as a temporary
means to artificially create
markets, but rather as a way to
subsidize. and incubate these
nascent .markets while we
discern how best to structure
and grow them into their own
sustainability?
As I looked around the
room, I saw that agriculture
promotes job growth beyond
careers in agriculture itself.. I
saw that the small pieces of
local and independent
business-agriculturally-
related or not-can add up to a
larger whole that many near-
bankrupt* counties and
municipalities are frantically
searching for within
standardized economic
development strategies and
from a few large employers.
Our own state just last
month passed House Bill 7209
allowing cottage-industry food
products that .are not
considered dangerous-like
jams, jellies and baked
goods-to be produced in the
home kitchen and sold legally
if direct marketed and properly
labeled. This is just one
example of the progress that
has come from our Department
of Agriculture, UF/IFAS
Extension, farmers, nonprofits


Letters to the Editor


Think you for
helping
Dear Editor:
Recent circumstances in my
life caused me to deliberate
about moving from the Starke,
Bradfoid County area.
How0C'ber..an incident whereby
I suffered a cardiac arrest in
the Bradford County
Courthouse on July 26, assured
me lhat .I was residing exactly'
where 1I, needed to be.
Th;e',riumber of people that
worked to re\ ive me after my
cardiac arrest is too great to
recount in this letter. However,
I would' 'like to publicly thank
all those individuals for their
service,. 'their dedication to
their duties and their
professionalism. I don't know
all the individuals involved
with the resuscitation effort but
I do know there %were many.
I understand Michael Heeder
from Bradford County EOC
was instrumental in leading the
efforts, along with Sgt. George
Konkel, Deputy Scott Konkel
and Deputy Jared Smith. 1.


have not,had the opportunity to
personally shake the hands of
these individuals and thank
them, but it will be a priority
when I return to work.
To those who have
expressed their concerns or
have prayed for me, I am
deeply appreciative of your
kindness and compassion. The
past several months, in fact.
the last three years, have
certainly been tough for me. Lt
is so refreshing to know that
there are plenty of people in
Bradford Count) that I can call
friend, and who have offered
to help me through my ordeal.
I pray I never have to go
through another incident like
this, but I am proud to know
Bradford County has some of
the best EMS and first
responder personnel in the
country.
My sincere gratitude to'all of
you; especially Deputy Scott
Konkel. \\ho took swift and
decisive action b) requesting
immediate help. You make me
proud to call Bradford Count)
my home!

and private citizens working
together. Expect to see more of
this progress.
On a small, community
scale, local agriculture and
local food service make sense
together. Food travels less; is
more fresh and more nutritive;
one may know who grew it
and how they grew, harvested,
packaged and stored it; one
may see it growing and may
even request how it is grown.
A restaurant can tell the story
of the food it serves. It's about
relationships. It's about food
quality, safety and security
witnessed with all the senses,
first-hand.
It's also about money.
Did you know the citizens of
Alachua, Marion, Putnam,
Bradford, Clay, Union,
Columbia, Suwannee, Levy
and Gilchrist counties spend
more than $4 billion per year
eating at home and out? The
majority of that money is spent
on food that is not locally
produced and sourced. Much
of it is also spent at food-
service and retail locations that
are not locally and
independently owned.
If just a small shift was
made here toward local food it
could have an exponential
impact on our food system, our
local economy-creating new
jobs and job security-and
bolstering our own "food
security. It would provide
some shock absorption for
market and energy supply
fluctuations, and, because we
are largely talking about local
and independent business, the
money stays within our
community and circulates,
creating wealth by multiplying
itself.
Let's say we could shift a
mere 2 percent of that
expenditure into locally
sourced food and that much of
that shift would occur through
local and independent growers,
restaurants and other
businesses in agricultural-on
the. periphery or unrelated, but
necessary professional
services. That means that $80
million dollars would be
generated within our region
and, when one considers that
the local multiplier effect turns
every $1 spent into $1.50-
$2.50 for a net gain of 50
cents-$1.50, the total economic
impact could: be from $120
million to as high as $200
million.
Additionally, if one applies
the imputed employment
multiplier relevant to Alachua
County in 2009 for agriculture
and related industries (i.e. 19.9
jobs created for each million
dollars of direct output), at
least 1,592 jobs could be
created from such a shift.
Many of us are aware that
locally and more responsibly

Bike Fest a success for


local business community


The hurricane that created
nightmares for the East Coast of
the U.S. did not affect the Starke
Bike Fest at all. The weather
was great for the hundreds of
bikers who visited Starke over
the weekend.
The bike fest event was the
most successful ever. Visitors
from all over enjoyed the events
sponsored by Main Street
Starke, with the support of the
city of Starke and dozens of
volunteers who made an event
of this size work. Congratula-
tions to Rusty Greek, Main
Street Starke members and all of
the volunteers for a great job!
The event left the impact that
is was created for-motel rooms
were rented, food was consumed
and gasoline was sold. The mo-
-tel owners, restaurant owners,
convenience store owners and
others had a good weekend in
additional sales.
If you benefited from the bike
fest, it would be helpful for you
to let the promoters know how
well you did. Please do it
through phone calls to the
chamber of commerce at 904-
964-5278 or email the chamber
at pam@northfloridachamber.

The Tourism Development
Council funds a portion of the
bike fest and other events that
occur in Bradford County. The
TDC gets its money through a
motel/hotel bed tax on all rooms
rented in the county. The Brad-
ford County Commission over-
sees the TDC's budget and
commissioners would like to
know what result these events
create.

FOOD
Continued from Page 4B

grown food can be more
'expensive than its large,
agricultural counterpart-
sometimes exponentially so.
There are good reasons for
this: living wages,
diseconomies of scale, lack of
government subsidy and slow
food-growth rates. There are
also bad ones: poor business
planning, insufficient cost
analysis, lack of market access
and demand, and distribution
lacunae.
There are surprises as well:
the restaurateur who balks at
the price difference between
local lettuce from a small
farmer and its large-scale,
extra-state counterpart and
decides to give it a try anyway.
He finds latent value between
the two price structures via
savings from the lettuce's
longevity and its increased
amount of usable leaves for his
sandwiches from more
sustainable growing methods

and its non-standard variety.
He finds revenue in its
,marketability to the public
seeking local produce.
Another example: the farmer
who makes top dollar sallipg
his produce at retail value at
the farmers markets decides to
also sell a few items to .a
restaurant and plans his season
accordingly. He discovers that
the wholesale and retail values
of his produce are bridged by
maximizing his time for
product sold-picking what is
already sold without having to
stand at a market for several
hours-the longevity of his
product by not having leftover
and un-sellable product at the
end of a market day, and his
marketable yield by growing
specifically for wholesale
markets and individual
restaurants.
My advice to the community
is to take a chance on local
food. Start with small
additions to your diets and
expand when those seem
manageable. Stay informed.
Tell your legislators how you
feel. Re-invest in your
community. Support those who
support your foodshed. -

Ridgeview hands Indians loss in preseason classic


BY KEVIN MILLER
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor
The Keystone Heights
Indians' first defensive play of
the night last Thursday against
the Ridgeview Panthers
couldn't have been scripted
better. The Indians' Daniel
Williams jarred the ball loose
from a Panthers running back
after a short gain, and Logan
Sianley recovered the fumble
near mid-field, giving the
Keystone offense prime field
position early in the game.
Unfortunately, the remainder
of the half in the preseason
bpener was downhill for the
Indians defense as the Panthers
scored 28 points on four of
their next five possessions.
Poor tackling and poor pass
coverage made it easy for the
Panthers, as they rolled up 273
yards in their no-huddle
offense on the way to a 28-7
lead at halftime.
The junior varsity teams
played the second half for each
team.
Ridgeview quarterback Josh
Moore did most of the damage
against the Indians, passing for
134 yards on 12-of-19
completions and running for
51 yards on 11 carries,
including three short runs for
touchdowns.
Keystone head coach Chuck
Dickinson said he thought his
defense played well, noting the
early turnover and the fact the
Panthers had short fields to
work with on two of their
scoring drives.
Ridgeview, though, did put
together a lengthy scoring
drive on which they converted
several long third-down plays.
"We've got to make plays

there," Dickinson said.
The Panthers accumulated
13 first downs and didn't have
to punt once as the. Keystone
offense couldn't do much to
give the defense a break when
it had the ball. The Indians
mustered only three first
downs, all of them coming
during their only scoring drive.
Turnovers, missed blocking
assignments and mental
mistakes hurt the offense,
Dickinson said, adding that his
team did not have a good
practice the day before the
game.
"I told the kids after the
game the way we played was
similar to the way we practiced
the day before," Dickinson
said.
Keystone's lone offensive
highlight came on its final
possession of the half when
quarterback Evan Harvey
completed two passes to
Stanley for 14 and 10 yards,
respectively, sandwiched
around an 11-yard run by
Bruce Kirksey. Those plays
moved the ball for the Indians
from their 25 to the Panthers
40-yard line. After a 5-yard
run by Alex Gonzales, Harvey
found Chase Julius on a nice
corner route near the end zone
for the Indians' lone score.
On the touchdown throw,
Julius made a great inside fake
on his defender at the 15-yard
line, then broke out toward the
corner. Harvey lofted a perfect
pass for the score.
Harvey ended up completing
4-of-9 passes for 56 yards, but
could have had more if not for
a couple of dropped balls.
For the half, Gonzales
rushed for 21 yards on six
carries. Kirksey had 22 yards


on four carries, but fumbled
twice, with both turnovers
going the Panthers' way.
Gonzales also punted four
times for the Indians,
averaging 28 yards per kick.
After the first fumble by
Kirksey, the Keystone defense
did rise to the occasion and
prevent the Panthers from
scoring. Leading 14-0 at this
point, the Panthers had the ball
at the Keystone 20, and on first
down tried a pass over the
middle. Indians defensive back
AJ. Scheer made a good hit on
the receiver, knocking the ball
loose. On the next play, the
Panthers quarterback had a
wide-open field in front of
him, but lineman Colton Cade
made a good tackle for just a
I-yard gain. After another
incomplete pass and a penalty,
the Panthers missed badly on a
32-yard field goal attempt.
Unfortunately, the Indians
turned the ball right back over
two plays later on another
fumble, and the Panthers
scored on the next play from
25 yards out to go up 21-0
with 10 minutes left in the
second quarter.
Dickinson said the mistakes
the Indians made are
correctable, which is really
what the preseason classics
enable teams to do.
"It was a good look at what
we need to work on,"
Dickinson said.
The Indians open the regular
season on the road this Friday,
Sept. 2, against Hawthorne at
7:30,p.m. Hawthorne, a Class
IA team, defeated Lafayette
14-6 in a preseason game that
was cut short because of the
weather.

7-4, qualifying for the
playoffs, but losing 41-0 in the
first round to Jefferson
County.
The Hornets scored. an
average of 26 points per game
last year, while opponents
averaged 20 points per game.

Indians hold 14-7
advantage in JV half
Keystone's junior varsity
team played Ridgeview's
junior varsity in the second
half of the Aug. 25 classic,
outscoring the Panthers 14-7.
Head coach Lantz Lowery
praised his team's defensive
effort, saying, "We didn't have
a whole lot of missed tackles."


That defense accounted for
one score as Brighton Gibbs
stepped in front of a pass in the
flat and took it to the house for
a touchdown.
Gibbs made an impact on
offense as well, making a nice
reception on a scoring drive
that was capped by
quarterback Blake
Valenzuela's 1-yard plunge
over the goal line.
Defensive end Chase


Musselman made a play of
note when, he caught a low,
line-drive punt by Ridgeview
at the line of scrimmage and
returned it 25-30 yards. i
The Keystone junior varsity
team will host Hawthorne
Thursday, Sept. 1, at 6 p.m.

Northside Christian makes the switch to tackle football


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
For six years, its version of
football involved no helmets,
pads or other such safety
equipment. There was no need
as there was no physical
contact.
This year, students at
Starke's Northside Christian
Academy get to make an
actual tackle rather than
snatching a flag off of an
opposingg player as the school
is now participating in six-on-
six tackle football as a member
of the Florida Christian
Association of Private and



NCA Eagles win

first tackle

football game
Dustiri Elder returned a
kickoff 70 yards for the
decisive touchdown as
Northside Christian Academy
began its first season of tackle
football with a win, defeating
Geneva-a school that has
been participating in tackle
football for five to six years-
28-27 in Lakeland on Aug. 26.
The Eagles committed five
turnovers, one of which
resulted in a Geneva
touchdown that put Northside
down 27-21 with
Approximately five minutes
remaining in the game. Elder,
though, took the ensuing
kickoff the distance, with a
successful PAT giving the
Eagles the win.
"I'm proud of our team,"
head coach Lewis Mabrey
said. "They played hard and
fought with a lot of heart. We
made big plays when we
needed them, (including) a
huge touchback by kicker
Spencer Bunch in the fourth to
set Geneva back deep. Dustin
Elder and Michael.McDowell
both returned kickoffs for
touchdowns. Antuan Jackson
,had a 60-yard touchdown run
and key pass breakups late in
the fourth. Sean Hanson
connected with Duke
Atteberry on multiple pass
plays."
Jackson also had a fumble
recovery among the defensive
highlights.
.NorthsidWcwill be back in
action in its first home game
on Friday, Sept. 9, against
Eastland at 4 p.m.


Parochial Schools.
Toby Roehm, the school's
principal, admitted it was
surreal to watch Northside
playing tackle football at a
spring jamboree. Simply
having a multi-sports program,
let alone participating in tackle
football, is an answered prayer.
"Our first year, we thought,
'Man, it'd be great if we could
ever have sports at some point
in our existence.' 1 know we're
not 11-man (football)," Roehm
said, "but we never thought
we'd be tackle at this point."
The Eagles, who played
their first game last Friday,
defeating Geneva 28-27, are
one of more than 40 teams'
playing in the Florida Christian
Association of Private and
Parochial Schools league,
which is divided into four
regions. Each region is
centered around a major city or
cities, Roehm said. Northside's
region consists of schools from
Gainesville, Jacksonville and
St. Augustine, while the other
three regions are composed of
schools in the Orlando,
Tampa/St. Petersburg and
Miami areas.
Six-on-six tackle football is
a fast-paced game that kind of
reminds Roehm of Arena
Football, and like Arena
Football, the football
Northside and other members
in its league play has some
major differences from the


normal, I I-player game.
"Everybody's an eligible
receiver, so that kind of adds a
new thing," Roehm said.
"Even your center can snap the
ball and go out for a pass.
Really, it makes every position
a skill position. It's no longer
just your quarterback, running
back and receivers. You tend
to not have the bigger, lunkier
linemen. Everybody's built to
speed and strength."
The field is 40 yards by 80
yards as opposed to 50 yards
by 100 yards. Field goals are
worth four points instead of
three, while kicks after
touchdowns are worth two
points. Eleven-man football's
two-1point conversions are
worth one point in the six-on-
six game.
"It's very fast-paced and
high-scoring," Roehm said.
Flag football, which
Northside participated in the
previous six years, was open to
students in sixth grade through
12'h grade, but tackle football
is limited to eighth-graders
through 12'"-graders.
(Northside's younger students
will still play flag football,
though.)
Roehm said the question he
probably heard the most from
the students who played flag
football in the past in regard to
now participating in tackle
football was, "Why'd you wait
this long?"


Michael McDowell makes a catch during practice.


"It's something we've been
kind of mulling over for two
years," Roehm said. "We
heard about this league
through some church members
who actually work at a school
in Gainesville. Their kids went
to school there and played in
this league."
Roehm said the school heard
about the negatives of
participating; including the
higher cost of outfitting
players in helmets and pads.
Listening to others talk about
the negatives prevented the
school from pursuing tackle
football sooner, Roehm
admitted, but he and others
associated with the school
eventually did their own
homework on the costs
involved and whether or not it
would be feasible to
participate.
"It moved fairly quickly
after that," Roehm said. "It
was probably December of the
last school year that we really
started diving into really
seeing if we were ever going to
do this."
The students certainly
wanted it, and a meeting with
parents revealed they
supported the endeavor as
well.
Lewis Mabrey, who was
hired in January to coach P.E.
at Northside, is the tackle
team's coach. He and Craig
Falstreaux, who is assisting
Mabrey, have been teaching
the players the basic points of
tackling. Roehm said it's
something many of them
haven't been exposed to. Some
may have had a year or two of
Pop Warner football
experience, but for the most
part, they've only. played flag
football.
"They've had to pick it up in
a month and a half-what the
average high-schooler at
Bradford's had six or eight
years to do," Roehm said.
Still, that hasn't prevented
the bar from being set high for
this inaugural team. Yes, this
year is the start of a
foundation, but Roehm said
the players have been told to
not simply be satisfied that
they were on the school's first-
ever tackle football team.
Instead, he'd like the players to
be able to say, "Look at what
the football team did in its first
year."
Northside's next game will
be its first home game. The

Union's offense went three-
and-out on its first two series,
but picked up a first down on
its third series on a 10-yard
pass from Austin Harden to
Cory Houck. That made a
drive that began at the
Bradford 37 look more
promising as the Tigers had a
first down at the 23, but Union
gained 5 yards in three plays
after Houck's reception and
faced a fourth-and-5 play that
resulted in a sack by
Bradford's Lyndell Hampton
for a 12-yard loss.
The Tigers finished the half
with 4 yards of offense and the
one first down.
"We didn't execute," Pruitt
said. "We didn't do what we
needed to do to be successful.
We kept our defense on the
field way too long."
Asfit was, though, the Union
defense held the Tornadoes to
22 first-half yards.
Bradford went three-and-out
on its first series of the second
half, but picked up a first down
on an 11-yard run by Clayton
to start its second series. Two
more runs by Clayton netted 7
yards and gave the Tornadoes
a third-and-3 opportunity at the
Union 17. The Union defense,
though, forced the Tornadoes
to turn the ball over on downs.
The Tigers had the chance to
extend an offensive series
when Bradford was flagged for
roughing the punter, but
penalties and a bad shotgun
snap resulted in a total loss of
25 yards and forced Union to
line up to punt again.

caught the second touchdown
that would be called back.
Cody Miller had an
interception for the Union
junior varsity team.
When it was all over, the
head coaches looked at the
game in different lights.
Chipoletti, though admitting he
was disappointed in losing to a
team he felt his team should've
beaten just because of
Bradford's advantage in
numbers, said the classic was
not a "big" game to him.
"I appreciate the rivalry,"
Chipoletti said, "but the fact of
the matter is our record's 0-0
right now. So is their's. We've
got to get ready for (season-
opening opponent) Palatka.
That's what tonight does-it
allows us to go back and see if
we need to make some
*changes or stick with what
we're doing in certain areas."
From his vantage point,
Pruitt said he was glad to be on


the winning end this year and
not have to carry around the
J6ss to a heated rival the entire
season. It was a game he and
his players wanted to win after
losing at home to Bradford last
season.
"It was our field," Pruitt
said. "We weren't letting them
take any of our grass back with
them."
The Tigers will attempt to
claim a bit of the grass at
Fernandina Beach High School
when they travel to play the
Pirates to open the regular
season this Friday, Sept. 2, at
7:30 p.m. Fernandina, a Class
4A team, has gone 2-8 in each
of the last two seasons.
Bradford opens its season at
home against Palatka on Sept.
2 at 7:30 p.m. Palatka, a Class
5A team, lost 10-7 to Eastside
in a preseason classic. The
Panthers won just four games
last year, but qualified for the
playoffs. They lost 34-10 to
Clay in the first round.
