Spires family looking back over long UC history


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor


On Aug 29, Bill McGill, on
behalf of the Union County His-
torical Society, hosted a gather-
ing at the Marjorie McGill Drig-
gers Historical Museum to honor
more than 100 years of history
involving the Spires family, and
their store.
The historical society, located.
in the Townsend Building at
410 W. Main St., is home to the
historical museum and artifacts
of the Lake Butler area dating
back prior to the beginning of
the county. In these artifacts, the
Spires family and their store can
be found. Tommy Spires attend-
ed the event and spoke about the
Spires store and his family.
Spires IGA, located at 610
S.W. 1st St., has been known
as "the grocery store" in Lake
Butler for more than 100 years.
In the late 1890s, Mike Spires'
great-grandparents, George W.
and Zona Spires, opened a store
in the midway section of Lake
Butler. Littler'did they know their
family and their store would be-
come such a large part of the his-
tory of Lake Butler.
George W. Spires, who was
born in Cordele, Ga., met the
former Zona O'Neil from Val-
dosta, Ga., when they both were
in their late teens and later mar-
ried in 1895. In 1922, when the
boll weevils took the cotton, the
couple moved to Florida, later
opening the original store in the
Midway area of Union County.
The store was moved to its cur-


rent location in 1923. The Spires
family began to sell more gro-
cery items and eventually joined
the Pleasing Food Store chain.
The Pleez-ing Food Store was
the name of the store in Lake
Butler. It stocked cloth, tobacco
.and snuff products, farming and
horse supplies and household
items.
There was a need for cloth to
make clothing, coffee, which
local farmers did not grow, and
other necessities for everyday
life such as wash tubs and barrels
for bathing and to wash clothes
in, eating utensils, shoes, salt and
sugar, etc. It was also the place
to get fresh horse supplies such
as saddles, harnesses, toolsfor
farming, nails and supplies for
building, etc. Attached was a
warehouse feed store. The train
would bring the feed in a boxcar
to supply the store.
The store not only carried a va-
riety of household items but was
also the local drug store for home
cure remedies.
Where Jackson's Building
Supply is located now, there were
chicken houses. For a while the
store had a chicken pin located
at the store. The store would sell
the chickens for so much a pound
dressed or undressed (dead or
alive). Fernie Spires, grandfather
of Mike Spires, took over the
store in the early 1940s.
The store eventually merged
with Winn and Lovette stores,
which later became known. as
Winn Dixie. In* 1961, the store
became associated with Inde-
perdent Grocers Alliance (IGA),


which is now one of the world's
largest retailers with stores in
Canada and Australia.
Tommy Spires returned to
Union County, leaving his coach-
ing job in Ocala and assumed
the management position of the
Spires Store in 1972.
During the gathering at the his-
torical society, Spires reflected
on his experiences as a child and
the memories he had of the store.
He said that it became hard to get


general merchandise delivered so
the store became more of a gro-
cery store and less of a dry good
store. He said, "Back in the day,
you had to walk down the aisles
of the store pulling each chain on
the lights to turn them on.
"Everyone smoked, there were
ash trays on the registers and in
the isles," he said. "There was a
sign that said, "come on in, it's
cool, back when an air condi-
tioner was not taken for granted."


Spires continued, "I can remem-
ber when Cokes went from five
cents to six cents. Dad thought
that would kill business, no one
would pay six cents."
During the years, the structure
that began in 1923 eventually was
torn down and the new store was
built. In the early 1960s the store
consisted of a 50'xl00' sales
area with a 90'x50' warehouse
attached. A later addition was a
50'xl00' sales area utilizing part

of the warehouse area. A three-
year renovation project began on
the store ending in 1985. The re-
placement of refrigeration equip-
ment was among one of the first
changes. High shelving units and
new cash registers were installed.
A big change that occurred at that
time was the deletion of many of
the dry goods-and the store be-
coming more of a grocery store

Landfill approves $7.7M


budget, no new fees for now


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

When the New River Solid
Waste Association approved its
budget for 2011-2012, it did not
include new fees for the disposal
of clean yard waste, but it may
be something the board has to
come back and address during
the year.
Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal told the board that up
until now, New River has been
able to accept such yard waste
at no charge because it could be
turned into mulch and used on
the slopes of the landfill. New
permit requirements, however,
insist that sod be used on the
slopes, which has left the landfill
with a surplus of mulch that must
be disposed of.


O'Neal quoted a cost of $18
per ton to dispose of the average
2,300 tons of mulching material
brought to the landfill each year,
which would generate just over
$41,000. (This did not include
Baker County, which has its
own facility for processing yard
waste.)
O'Neal said most of the reve-
nue to deal with clean yard waste
would come from businesses and
municipalities. It would not cost
counties, but responding to a
question from Chairperson Karen
Cossey,'O'Neal said the proposal
would cost citizens who brought
clean yard waste to the landfill.
Commissioner Doyle Thomas
asked if the board could opt to
do nothing. O'Neal said that is
something the board would have
to decide, but he pointed to Ala-


chua County, where citizens and
businesses are paying $25 a ton
and there is a cost to the county.
The landfill also purchased a
grinder in part to assist with yard
waste resulting from natural di-
sasters, he added.
Thomas and Commissioner
Eddie Lewis said if the board
were to institute a new fee, they
would like to see it restricted to
businesses, so it wouldn't affect
citizens or public agencies.
There was also talk of letting
citizens take the mulch, which
would result in recycling credits
for the landfill.
In the end, the $18 per ton fee
for clean yard waste was stripped
from the budget to be taken up at
a later time.

Burglaries solved, 4 arrested


The Union County Sheriffs
Office arrested two people for
an armed burglary that occurred
sometime during the last week
of August at a residence off of
Southwest 68th Way in Lake
Butler.
The homeowner was not at
the residence for about one week


and investigation indicates that
his absence was known .by the
suspects.
George A. Tetstone, 30, and
his girlfriend, Carolyn V. Gass,
21, allegedly broke the back win-
dow and entered the residence,
stealing numerous guns, jewelry
and medication.


UCSO Major Garry Seay said
that investigation led to the arrest
of Tetstone and Gass for armed
burglary of a structure, grand
theft and grand theft firearm.
Both were transported to jail.

Armed Starke robber caught


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A Starke pharmacy was target-
ed Tuesday morning, but Starke
police grabbed their man while
the robbery was in progress ac-
cording to Capt. Barry Warren.
The police department re-
sponded to a call from Madison
Street Pharmacy Sept. 6 around
8:40 a.m. There, the suspect, 23-
year-old Dana Carl Douglas Jr. of
Lake City, had entered the phar-
macy demanding Oxycodone.


*Douglas had not shown a
weapon when the first call was:
made, Warren said, but a subse-
quent call to dispatch indicated
that Douglas was armed and had
revealed his weapon-a rifle.
Warren said Officer Chad
Howell arrived on the scene at
8:41 a.m. and saw a male inside
the store wearing a hooded jacket
but saw no weapon in his hands.
"Officer Howell noted that
no weapon was observed in the
suspect's hands, and made the
decision to take immediate ac-


tion to avoid a possible hostage
situation," Warren said.
When Howell entered the busi-
ness, the suspect ran down an-
aisle. Howell followed him down
the opposite aisle,.shadowing his
movement. When Howell began
to turn the corner and enter the
suspect's aisle, the suspect took
off in the other direction.
Howell used his Taser to stop
Douglas and restrain him on the
floor. After handcuffing Doug-

New WS council members tackle old problems


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor


On Aug 23, the Worthington
Springs Town Council held a
special meeting. Mayor Shane
Massey said that it was his first
time presiding over a special
meeting but felt that it was neces-
sary in order to clarify facts relat-
ed to a lot of controversial issues
surrounding previous building
projects and events in Worthing-
ton Springs.
"We are not here to have and
investigation, a trial or a debate,
we are here to conduct the towns
business," said Massey. "There
will be time for council discus-
sion and there will be time for
public input."
Massey explained that because
the council members weren't the
same as before, there would be
a lot of questions as they were
brought up to speed on the issues.
Massey said three weeks prior to
the meeting, when he was sworn
in as the mayor, he committed
himself to expeditiously start to
close town projects and to do so
in a very open and transparent
manner so the public would be
well aware and well informed of
what the council was doing.
He said that his objective was
rebuilding the trust in the local
leadership of the town. "In the
three weeks I've been the mayor
of the town, there has been a lot
that has come up that needs to

of the items have been located
and hard evidence was obtained,
showing these two committed
these crimes and (if convicted)
they are looking at a minimum
of three years or more in the De-
partment of Corrections."
Tetstone is being held in the
Union County Jail on these
charges, as well as some addi-
tional unrelated charges, with a
total bond of $79,000. Gass is be-
ing held in the Bradford County
Jail on a $45,000 bond.
Juveniles arrested in
break-in
On Aug. 31, two juveniles
unlawfully entered a residence
located on Northeast 2nd Street
within the city limits of Lake
Butler. The homeowner left the
residence and, upon returning,
noticed that his residence had
been burglarized.
UCSO responded and evidence

be addressed. A lot of it needs
to be addressed in a very expedi-
tious fashion, it will be very fast
paced, and some of it is very old
and complex."
The mayor and town council
gathered paperwork, receipts,
invoices, etc. to become familiar
with the business at hand.
Discussion of a special meet-
ing held on July 22, began a time
line that explained details of a
previous election. An election
was scheduled July 19, however
on July 5, the council decided to
appoint a new council member.
That council member was sworn
in at that meeting on July 5, after
that several people who quali-
fied as candidates for the elec-
tion withdrew their names for
the open council seats. On Aug.
2, Massey and two other council
members were sworn in. Their
positions were uncontested.
On Aug. 2, minutes from a
special meeting on July 22 were
found on council member Pat
Harrell's desk along with copy
of an agreement that was entered
into with Freeman and Associ-
ates Design Group. The title of
that agreement was phase 1 north
runway (of the airport).
The council members present
at that time were Joan Douglass,
Bill Holton and Bob Waters. A
meeting time was posted at 1
p.m. on July 22 at the community
center at the request of Suwan-
nee River Water Management


suspects left the scene in a hurry.
Investigators believed that the
homeowner possibly interrupted
the burglary in progress. .The
residence was likely entered in
search of firearms and items of
value.
The RMC K-9 Team was
called for assistance and a six-
block area was blocked off to
search for the suspects.
UCSO Capt. H.M. Tomlinson
noticed two juveniles running
into the wooded area around
Northeast 3rd Street. Deputy
James Crews and Deputy Todd
Hanlon located the juveniles
within the woods and arrested
them.
According to Deputy Han-
lon, the juveniles were ages 16
and 15, and both lived in Lake
Butler. They were charged with
armed burglary of a structure and
larceny of a firearm.
Both juveniles were trans-
ported to the Juvenile Detention
Center to be held until their curt
hearing. A judge may extend a

District (SRWMD). The meet-
ing was necessary to close out
paperwork on a city road project.
A motion was made by Doug-
lass for Freeman and Associates
to perform this task with motion
seconded by Bill Holton.
Only council members and
John Rimes (liaison to the proj-
ect) were present at the July 22
special meeting. The town en-
tered into an agreement with
Freeman and Associates to do
some engineering work on an
old project titled phase 1 north
runway. When Harrell found the
minutes to this meeting, she was
unsure what they were for; they
were not discussed in the previ-
ous town council meeting.
Massey expressed concerns
over the documentation. He said
that minutes, which are suppose
to be made available soon after
a meeting, surfaced on Aug 10,
almost a month after the special
meeting. There is also a $4,960
invoice with Douglass listed as
the executor of this agreement.
Massey received a call ask-
ing why the invoice had not
been paid and why wasn't the
contract closed out. With it be-
ing a very important project that
needs to be closed out, the town
could face fines from SRWMD.
Massey became very concerned
about that and started doing his
own research.
Massey titled this "Consolidat-
ed Suwannee River Management


up to 21 days or more.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead said,
"Quick police work led to the ar-
rest of all four of these suspects
which makes Union County even
that much safer with each of them
off the streets."
All citizens are urged to re-
port suspicious activity to the
Union County Sheriffs Office
immediately at 386-496-2501.
If you have information about
a crime you can remain anony-
mous by phone or by sending a

pers at 1-866-845-TIPS.


District Compliance and Enforce-
ment Report." Massey checked
the SRWMD's published min-
utes, which outline violations,
etc., by governmental bodies and
found compliance issues related
to the Worthington project. Be-
ginning with respondent, former
Mayor John Rimes, New River
Forest Villas, November 2010
compliance issue.John Rimes Jr.
stated that February of 2011 was
first time he had heard of this is-
sue. SRWMD's documentation
of this incident, stated, "date ac-
tion required, Oct. 25, 2010, in
the violation summary."
The report said, "The prop-
erty in question is believed to be
owned by the city of Worthing-
ton Springs. Jeff Rimes was
called Oct 4, and it was deter-
mined that the property in ques-
tion was under the control of the
city of Worthington Springs and
called New River Forest Villas.
Johri Rimes Sr. was not inter-
ested in meeting with the district
(SRWMD) until the district dis-
closed the anonymous complain-
ant. He then made arrangements
to call staff when he returned
from out of town. The phone call
was hoped to be followed by a
site visit to clarify the limits of
the unpermitted activities, how-
ever during phone conversation,
John Rimes Sr. still came across
as uncooperative."
While John Rimes Sr would
not cooperate, Massey said that
John Rimes Jr and Jeff Rimes
have been very cooperative with
him while he's been trying to
sort these matters out. Massey
thanked them for being so coop-


erative.
The update of this item was
made public in November 2010
when the SRWMD posted it to its
website. In December of 2010, in
the update it becomes clear that
the discussion between John
Rimes Sr., John Rimes Jr. and
Jeff Rimes is about whether this
unpermitted activity is on pri-
vate property or public property.
January 2011, SRWMD received
information from Jeff Rimes on
Nov. 2, 2010, indicating that
Worthington Springs town reso-
lutions accepted the dedication
of the streets of the Worthington
Springs municipal airport and es-
tablished a municipal airport.
Additional SRWMD docu-
mentation received on Nov. 29,
2010, confirmed the existence
of unpermitted activities on the
airpark site on properties owned
or controlled by both Rimes and
the city of Worthington Springs.
These activities appear to be re-
lated to runway and taxiway con-
struction.
A meeting was to be sched-
uled with the Rimes family and
the city by Jan. 31, 2011. At that
point, no one from the current
town council attended. At which
point, SRWMD opened another
case, which states, in November
of 2010, "Unpermitted construc-
tion (occurred), listing Pat Har-
rell as the respondent, and stated
that staff scheduled a meeting
with city in January of 2011.
This is related to John Rimes
Jr. and New River Forest Villas.

The board went on to approve
a $7.7 million budget, which was
down nearly 31 percent from the
$11.2 million budget approved
for 2010-11, largely because cell
6 constriction costs that have al-
ready been expended.
Even though disposal rates are
down, higher resulting tipping
fees for Alachua and Levy coun-
ties ($32 per ton) will help offset
some of the loss. Interest income
from investments is also down
since the board had to move its
money from more lucrative cash
deposits at multiple banks to
state-approved institutions offer-
ing lower interest rates.
Money is being carried for-
ward to help complete the flare
expansion project, and $680,000
has been moved out of deprecia-
tion escrow for the purchase of
new equipment. Budgeted was
$150,000 for a loader backhoe
and $575,000 for a new compac-
tor, with a small amount set aside
for miscellaneous equipment
purchases.
The $7.7 million budget does
include money to raise salaries.
Cossey said employees deserve
a raise since they are now con-
tributing to their own retirement
as members of the Florida Re-
tirement System. The budget in-
cludes three percent to offset the
new contribution requirement,
plus two percent as a cost-of-liv-
ing increase, for a total of five
percent more. This will cost the
landfill an additional $30,000,

money for overtime during cell

construction.
On the other hand, changes
in state law have significantly
reduced the landfill's retirement
costs (more than 53 percent),
O'Neal said.
Commissioner Mark Hartley
asked if having a staff engineer
would reduce the landfill's engi-
neering costs, but it was felt that
even with an engineer of its own,
the board would still be contract-
ing certain projects out. O'Neal
said the landfill pays less for en-
gineering services than it has in
the past, but a number of new
projects have been added.
The budget includes estimates
of what will be spent on engineer-
ing in the upcoming fiscal year,
including $76,000 more to finish
off cell 6, $100,000 to permit a
borrow pit if the board acquires


new land, $275,000 on the gas
collection project, and another
$125,000 for miscellaneous proj-
ects that may come up.
The budget also anticipates
placing $800,000 in escrow for
the future construction of a sev-
enth disposal cell, plus money to
survey and test the land where the
landfill will be expanding into its
second phase. To meet its goal of
having long-term planning fully
funded by the end of Alachua
County's contract in 2018, the
board will also escrow $440,000
.for that purpose.
The cost of ongoing and future
projects included in the budget
includes $485,000 for the new
flare project, $50,000 for storm
water system construction,
$225,000 to prepare the site for
the landfill gas to energy project,


and $200,000 for expansion of
the gas collection system.
In addition, the host counties
will split S675,000 in dividends,
and Union County will receive
its additional annual S100,000
host fee.

Benny Carter, the previous

some pretty neat things.
Russ said, "I am so happy that
you are finally retired. Congrats!

Recognizing a Counterfeit
The Bible commands us to test those who make claims of a
religious nature (1 John 4:1; Revelation 2:2). One may wonder
how one can tell if someone is a counterfeit or telling them the
truth. One consideration is does what they say come to pass,
"when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing
does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the
Lord has not spoken" (Deuteronomy 18:22). Another method of
recognizing a counterfeit is to examine what they are telling you
in the light of previous revelation. Such is what the Bereans did
as they "searched the scriptures daily to find out whether these
things were so" (Acts 17:11). We must recognize that anything
that does not match the word of God is a counterfeit, "if we, or
an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what
we have preached to you, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:8).

MALLORY MARTIN
Special to the Times


Gene Autry's Cowboy Code
states, "A cowboy is always helpful
when someone is in trouble."
The Union County Riding Club
has always been known for its
western ways of horses, cowboys,
and c .i g rl but on Aug. 20, those
horsemen and women dug a little
bit deeper into their roots.
In honor of the Cowboy Code,
riders from the county and beyond
gathered to help out one of their
own members, the Love family,
in a very unique way: An extreme
cowboy challenge.
The fundraiser was held at the
local riding club where 80 teams
of riders and their horses used
their skills to maneuver their way
through 13 obstacles on a timed
course.
The obstacles were especially
challenging because they were
those that a horse or rider would
not see on an everyday basis. It
encouraged the riders to work
hand in hand with their horses.
Challenges included pulling a log,
walking over a bridge, crossing
a water hole, bringing mail to a
mailbox and backing their horse
through a pathway. Each horse
and rider team was timed, and any
obstacles they failed to complete
penalized the rider with an
additional 30 seconds added to his
or her total time.
Some teams blazed through the
obstacles at top speed, while others
spent a little more time perfecting
the course. Speedy. or not, all
teams enjoyed finding out the level
of trust they had for one another
as the horse and rider experienced
something new together. The
fastest three participants from each
age group were awarded trophies
donated by Santa Fe Ford and


Lagassee Quarter Horses.
The winners in the 40-year-old
and older age group were: first
place John Johns, second place
an unknown rider, and third place
Ralph Parrish. In the 12- to 39-
year-old group, first place went to
Mallory Martin, second place was
Georgie Howard, and third place
went to Jennifer Rich. Coming
out on top of the 12-and-under age
group were Seth Harrison in first
place, Jenna Rich in second and


Makayla Cauley in third.
No matter how they placed at the
end of the day, all the cowboys and
cowgirls were happy to have helped
out the Love family. Fundraisers
like the extreme obstacle course
and many others are a testament to
the compassion that the members
of the Union County Riding Club
have toward each other and the
willingness to follow the Cowboy
Code-helping one of their own.

Sims: working hard to enjoy life and help others with CF


BY CLIFF SMI-LL.L I;Y
Regional News/Sports Editor
Working three jobs and
going to school would seem to
summon the perfect Calgon-
take-me-away moment, but for
.Lawtey native Katelyn Sims.
it's simply getting the most out
of life while she has the ability
to do so.
Sims, the 20-year-old
daughter of David and Leisa


Sims, always seems to be
busy, which is just the way she
wants it. Though she has lived
longer than some doctors
believed she would, she is
taking nothing for granted,
knowing full well that the
disease she has lived with all
her life still has a say in how
long she lives.
"For me, I've never really
had a stopping point," Sims


said. "I know I'm only going
to be able to do so much for.so
long. While I'm able to do
what I can do, I want to do it."
That includes helping others.
This month, the third annual
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Great Strides of Bradford
County fundraising walk will
be held Saturday, Sept. 24,
beginning at Shands Starke
with registration at 8 a.m. and

Cowboys restaurant in Starke raised funds for the Bradford County Great Strides
event with a local celebrity night. Some well-known faces served as waiters and
waitresses, helping to raise $1,107. Participants were: (front, I-r) Vorease Jones,
Mary Powell, Cheryl Canova, Paula Register, Beth Moore, Brad Dunlap, (back, I-r)
Randy Jones, Nathan Thornton, Cowboys owner Robert Helms, Katelyn Sims, Terry
Vaughan and Gordon Smith.




Near future holds hope for


those with cystic fibrosis


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Hopes are that through
money raised by, the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation's Great
Strides events, a cure for cystic
fibrosis will eventually be
found, but in the meantime,
there is some promise on the
horizon of at least developing
medication that will prevent
people with cystic fibrosis
from getting any worse.
Claudia Werner, the
executive director of the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation's Florida
Chapter-North Florida Office,
spoke at a recent Kiwanis Club
of Starke meeting to help 2009
Bradford High School
graduate Katelyn Sims
promote the upcoming third
annual Great Strides of
Bradford County, which will
be held Saturday, Sept. 24.
(See related story.) She told
the club a lot has happened in
regard to promising drug trials
since she spoke to the club
prior to last year's Great
Strides event. Two drugs,
pending approval by the
Federal Drug Administration
and more testing, could see the
light of day in the near future.
These drugs-each of which
corresponds to one of the two
mutated cystic fibrosis genes-
will not cure cystic fibrosis,
but can prevent it from getting
worse.
"What these drugs'are doing
are reducing the salt in the
body, opening up the channels
so that water and salf are
flowing freely through the
cells," Werner said. "Mucus
isn't sticky. It's not thick."


These drugs would prevent
people with cystic fibrosis
from losing 1 to 2 percent of
their lung function every year.
"For little kids born today, it
could give them a normal life
span, which is pretty exciting,"
Werner said.
Werner stressed, however,
that it takes time to get drugs
approved. Plus, there's a
timeline in regard to testing the
drug on people of various age
ranges. Werner said it could be
another three to five years
before one of the drugs would
be tested on young children.
"All of that takes time, and it
all takes an awful lot of
money," Werner said. "That's
what Great Strides actually
does support."
Sims, 20, who took the
initiative to bring A Great
Strides event to Bradford
County, was diagnosed with
cystic fibrosis at the age of 4.
Doctors said she wouldn't live
beyond the age of 12. Later,
that became the age of 16.


Not only has she defied
those prognoses, but she has
quite an active lifestyle despite
her illinei,' Still, Sims must
make regular trips to the
hospital, take medication and
undergo various therapies and
treatments. She loses a
percentage of her lung function
every year. Since she was
diagnosed with cystic fibrosis,
her lung function has
decreased by approximately 50
percentage points.
Sims' lung function will
continue to decrease until a
drug is approved that could
benefit her, but once such a
drug is approved, it will
prevent her lung function from
getting worse. As she put it,
"A fix is better than nothing at
all."
"My lung function's already
like 70 percent," Sims told the
Kiwanis Club members. "It's
not going to get any better.
How my life is at this moment,

See HOPE page 7B


the event beginning at 9 a.m.
Sims, who has cystic fibrosis,
was instrumental in getting a
Great Strides event started in
her community.
Money raised through Great
Strides goes toward ongoing
research of drugs that may
eventually benefit those with
the disease. In 2009, before the
inaugural event in Bradford
County, Sims told the
Telegraph-Times-Monitor that
though she may not live to see
a cure for cystic fibrosis, she
-would at least have played
some part in helping to bring
about such a cure for others so
that their childhoods won't be
like hers was.
"They won't have to grow
up with all of the hospital stays
and doctors' visits," Sims said
in the Aug. 27, 2009,
interview. "They can live a
normal life."
The first-ever Great Strides
of Bradford County was
believed by Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation personnel to be
one of the most successful
inaugural Great.Strides events
in the state.-The events have
raised a total of'approximately
$31,000 the last two years,
with last year's event drawing
12 teams and a total of 222
individuals who stepped up
and supported the event in one
way or another.
"I knew it would do good in
this community," Sims said. "I
had faith in the community,
but the turnout we have every
year, the amount of dedication
everybody puts in and all the
different little things
everybody does that they don't
have to do-it's beyond what I
thought it would be."
Going above and beyond
perfectly describes Sims.
Despite regular stays in the
hospital and having to deal
with a condition that affects
her breathing, she has always


been active. She has competed
in multiple pageants-she was
the 2009 Bradford-Union
Strawberry Queen-and was a
cheerleader at Bradford High
School and is currently a
student at Santa Fe College.
Aside from her studies, Sims
teaches line dancing at Eight
Seconds in Gainesville and
works with student recreation
at the University of Florida
teaching dance as well.
"I've been dancing since I
was 2," Sims said. "Just by
doing that, you're used to it.
Teaching people how to dance
is fairly easy to me."

EIB testing brings Florida infantrymen 'back to the basics'


BY PFC LINDSEY JONES
and SGT. Is" CLASS
BLAIR HEUSDENS
Florida National Guard
Public Affairs
In late July, 99 soldiers from
the 53"' Infantry Brigade
Combat Team set out on a
journey many infantrymen
take, but few complete with
success.
For the first time in more
then 20 years, the Florida
National Guard conducted
testing at Camp Blanding Joint
Training Center for the Expert
Infantryman Badge, a coveted
award and symbol of tradition
tor U.S. soldiers who accept
the difficult and sometimes
thankless job of infantrymen.
As the sun rose July 22 and
the soldiers finished a 12-mile
road march-the last in a
week's worth of grueling
tasks--17 men stood proud,
having completed all of the
requirements to receive the
badge.
"Today, these 17 soldiers in
front of me earned this coveted
badge," Col. Thad Hill, the
brigade commander, said
during the award ceremony.

"Like those before you and
those who graded your efforts,
you have risen to the challenge
of upholding an enduring
legacy and lineage of
professionalism within our


field of infantry. To be a
holder of the EIB stands out as
- a mark of excellence."
The decision to conduct the
EIB testing this year was an
effort by brigade leadership to


bring the training focus back to
basic infantry skills. The
brigade recently returned from
a yearlong deployment to
Kuwait and is in the reset year
of the ARFORGEN cycle,


Seeking help won't end military career


BY SGT. 1sT CLASS
BLAIR HEUSDENS
Florida National Guard
Public Affairs


Call it a change in thinking,
a shift in culture or the effects
of years of studies; the military
is now stressing the
importance of mental health
and making it a priority
throughout the force.
Ongoing stressors on our
soldiers, airmen, sailors and
Marines have brought to the
forefront the importance of
taking care of service
members' mental ailments in
addition to physical injuries.
"I think nationwide we're
experiencing a tremendous
amount .of stress due to the
long-term deployment
engagement of the overall
military," said Michael
McFarland, the director of
psychological health for the
Florida National Guard. "The"
(operations tempo)for our men
and women in the Giitard is'
tremendous, and that creates a
lot of stress.".
The leadership of the Florida
National Guard wants you to
know that your mental health
is important and seeking help
isn't a sign of weakness and
won't end your career as a
soldier or airman.
"We've chosen this
occupation," said Command
Sgt. Maj. Michael Hosford, the
state command sergeant major.
"It's not the easiest occupation
in the world, and there.are a lot
of stressors out there. If you
can't look past a temporary
adversity to seeing the light for
tomorrow, then we need to get
you the tools to help you get
there."
What was once a source of
stigma and shame for
soldiers-seeking help for
mental health-related issues-
is slowly becoming not only an
acceptable course of action,

some support."
According to McFarland, the


earlier you can make an
intervention when it comes to
behavioral health, the easier it
is for that intervention and the
more likely it is for things to
be addressed in a very
successful way.
"If we let things go too long,
then the soldier may be
compromised for an extended
period of time," McFarland
said. "The way to minimize
that is the first time that you


have a sense that things are not
going well, reach out and get
help, and generally it can be
taken care of fairly quickly."
McFarland likens reaching

"After we got back from
deployment, we realized that
we needed to hone our
infantryman skills," Hill said.
"I call it going back to the
fundamentals-knowing your

responsibilities. It was a
perfect opportunity for us to
look at using the EIB testing as
a way to hone back in on the
core competencies of the
infantrymen that make up the
brigade."
The EIB testing combined


several training events into c...

testing period, soldiers. 'were

SIMS
Continued from Page 1B

Sims also works at Say I Do
Bridal in downtown Starke.
It makes for a busy schedule,
to be sure, but Sims knows
what she can handle and when
to draw a line.
"As long as you can
mentally and emotionally
handle it, I really don't think a
peson can have too much on
their plate," she said.
It helps that Sims and her
family know what it is she is
battling-something that was
unknown in the early stages of
Sims' life.

From life of mystery to
life with known illness
In the two years prior to
being diagnosed with cystic
fibrosis at the age of 4, Sims
was taken to see doctors 27
times. Her mother, Leisa,
knew something was wrong
with her daughter. Being sick
was a constant. The coughing
fits seemed to be never ending.
Plus, her daughter simply
wasn't developing and
growing as she should, Leisa
said. Katelyn weighed 23
pounds at 3.5 years of age.
That weight never changed
over the course of a year.
Bronchitis, respiratory
infection, flu, pneumonia-
Leisa heard all the various
diagnoses of what was wrong
with her daughter. She
believed them at first since
Katelyn would respond to
medications.
She would never stay well,
though, so Leisa began
challenging the diagnoses,
prompting a doctor to tell her
she was the most paranoid
mother he had even
encountered and that She
needed to believe what he was
telling her because he was the
doctor and she was not.
Leisa's response was that
she would take her child
elsewhere. She had a feeling
thatcher daughter didn't have
much time if she didn't find
out what was really wrong
with her.
The only problem was, Leisa
didn't know where to turn.
However, she had an
uphostery business at the time
and was doing work for the
offices of Dr. George Restea
and nurse practitioner Anne
Perantoni. Leisa asked
Perantoni if she could take a
qtiick look at Katelyn.
It was a quick look as
Perantoni soon suspected what
other doctors had not-that
Katelyn had cystic fibrosis. In
five minutes, Perantoni made
note of Katelyn's clubbing
digits-the spread of fingers
and toes due to lack of
oxygen-deep chest cavity and
protruding stomach. She told
Leisa to have Katelyn tested to
confirm that she had cystic
fibrosis.
A sweat test later confirmed
it. People with cystic fibrosis
have an increased amount of
salt in their sweat.
"If you go by and look at her
after she's been out in the sun
for a half hour or so, you will
see what appears to be sand on
her forehead," Leisa said in
regard to her daughter in an
Aug. 2.7, 2009, Times-
Telegraph-Monitor interview.
"It's actually salt crystals. She
sweats pure salt crystals."
Finally, the family knew
what was wrong with Katelyn.
That did not mean things went


.1


easy for her afterward. There
was. the trauma, for example,
of having an IV line inserted
by a nurse who did not use a
topical numbing agent. It was a
painful, scary incident for the
little girl who had never
undergone such an ordeal.
Katelyn had to be restrained by
a team of six nurses the next
three times she had to have IV
lines inserted.
Another incident had a nurse
making a visit to the Sims'
home and administering IV
medication without performing
a heparin lock flush, which
helps keep catheters open and
flowing freely. The result was
that Katelyn had to go to the
hospital to have a central line
reinserted.
No wonder, then, that
Katelyn had nightmares about
needles and IVs for years. Yet
there proved to be one more
traumatic incident. Katelyn
was 12 and having a
peripherally inserted central
catheter removed. The last 4
inches of the line snapped,
which resulted in Katelyn
having to undergo a heart
catheterization. She had to be
resuscitated three times during
the ordeal.
"For her to do everything
she does now is amazing to me
because of the things I've seen
her go through," Leisa told the
Telegraph-Times-Monitor in
2009. "Just the fact that she's
even halfway sane, honestly, is
an amazing thing."
There have been 'other
ordeals and frustrations along
the way, with one of the most
aggravating things being that it
has been-and is-difficult for
Katelyn to make long-range
plans due to regular hospital
stays for IV medication,
breathing treatments and
respiratory and physical
therapy.
On top of that, there are


unplanned visits to the
hospital, such as when Katelyn
was sick with an MAI
bacterial-or non-tuberculosis
mycobacterium- infection last
year.
"It's very, very aggravating
because you never know,"
Katelyn said about the timing
of her illnesses in a 2009
interview.
She still makes do, however.
One hospital stay occurred
before she was to compete in a
pageant. She simply found a
vacant room of the hospital in
which to practice -her talent
routine.
Then there was homecoming
of her senior year at Bradford
High School. She entered the
hospital earlier than she
normally would for routine
treatments and therapy so that
she would not miss out on the
festivities. She was part of the
homecoming court, plus she
wanted to be on the field with
her fellow varsity cheerleaders
since she was one of the
captains.
"I had 25 cheerleaders
counting on me to be there,"
Kately was quoted as saying in
2009. "I got put in the hospital
the week before just so I could
make it to homecoming. I had
to go right back in after
homecoming."
Graduating from high
school, let alone taking part in
homecoming festivities and
being a member of the
,cheerleading squad, was an
accomplishment as doctors'
prognoses had Katelyn not
living beyond the age of 12
and then later the age of 16.
In her Aug. 27, 2009,
interview with the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor, Katelyn said,
"I learned at a young age that
doctors aren't always right."
Now, Katelyn is getting
ready to get used to a new set
of doctors. She recently made

Walkers set out during the inaugural Bradford County Great Strides event in 2009.


her last visit to the Nemours
children's clinic in
Jacksonville, where she has
been going since she was
diagnosed with cystic fibrosis
at the age of 4. She will now
go to an adult clinic in
Gainesville, where one of her
doctors will be Runi Foster.
Katelyn said she won't miss
being treated like a child at
Nemours, but said it will be
hard to leave behind the
doctors who have been a part
of her life for so long.
"I'll miss my doctors,"
Katelyn said."They all went to
my graduation and pageants
and stuff."
And just like those doctors
attended such events in their
patient's life, others who have
met Katelyn show their
support by participating or
donating to Great Strides of
Bradford County. For
example, those whom she
works with at UF teaching
dance have formed a team,
whilee people such as Robert
Helms, the owner of Cowboys
in Starke continues to support
the event by providing free
food for participants.
Katelyn used to work as a


waitress at Cowboys ynd can't
say enough about Helms, who
would always call Katelyn
whenever she was in the
hospital and ask if there was
anything he could do for her.
"He's kind of like a second
parent," Katelyn said. "He's
always done a lot more than
what anybody's asked him to
do."
The Bradford County event
is also supported by Sonny's (a
former employer of Katelyn),
which provides drinks, and the
cadets of the Florida Youth
Challenge Academy-a
voluntary program for at-risk
teenagers at Camp Blanding.
Cadets ,.serve as volunteers,
doing such things as helping
people sign up to encouraging
walkers as they pass by.
"They work hard,". Katelyn
said of the cadets. "They do a
really great job."
There are so many others
involved in some way. As
Katelyn* said, the support
doesn't surprise her, but that
doesn't mean it doesn't make
an impression on her.
"I':ni excited (about this
year's event)," she said. "More

It's all about helping to find
a cure, but in the meantime,
Katelyn encourages parents of
children with cystic fibrosis to
allow them to live their lives to
the fullest. Some parents, she
said, may tend to want to
prohibit their children' from
being active, thinking that by
doing so, they will have their
children with them longer.
"If you're babying youi
child and not letting them get
out and experience life, it's not
going to be the best thing for
them," Katelyn said. "That
defeats the whole- living-life-
to-the-fullest concept. If you
don't get out there and do what
you want to do, what's the
point of living?"

Seeking treatment for a
mental health condition cannot
alone be a reason to discharge
a soldier or airmen, or prevent
a soldier or airmen from being
promoted. In fact, being
discriminated against for
having '" medical condition is
illegal.
However, failure to get
treatment for a mental health
condition resulting in severe
misconduct can have negative
impacts on a soldier's career.

"This one just affects the mind.
So we get the soldier the
professional help that they
need, and we bring them right
back and get them back in our
formations."
Even family members
shouldn't be afraid to contact a
Guardsman's chain of
command or McFarland
himself to report any unusual
behavior. Often, families are
the first to spot potential
problems in their service

"Overall, I think the threat

the confidentiality that the

totally outside of the radar of

opportunity for it to have -a
negative career impact."
Hosford feels that keeping
soldiers and airmen who acr
receiving mental health
treatment in the Guard will
reduce the stigma associated
with mental health illness and
treatment.
"When people see that
people aren't thrown out of tire
system-that they did get help
and that they were brought
back in-you take that
stigmatism out of therej.
Hosford said.
Hosford would like for
soldiers and airmen to never
consider suicide as an option
to problems.
"We are all of us-myself
included-going to have major
things happen to use in our
lives, and not all of them are
going to be good," Hosford
said, "but how we deal with
those bad things that happen to
us says a lot about who we are.
Sometimes, the adversity is
-just bigger than we can handle
by ourselves.
"Before you consider
suicide, understand that .if

stigmatize you. We're going to
get you fixed and bring you

Blackshear's block seals 12-9 OT win for Tornadoes


BY KEVIN MILLER
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor
Brian Blackshear blocked a
game-tying field goal in
overtime to give the Bradford
football team a 12-9 victory
over the visiting Palatka
Panthers last Friday night in
Starke in the season opener for
both teams.
Blackshear's block came
just moments after Tornadoes
quarterback Austin Chipoletti
put his team up by three with a
22-yard field goal on
Bradford's first possession in
overtime.
Chipoletti accounted for all
the Tornadoes' scoring,
kicking a 30-yard field goal in
the first quarter and scoring a
touchdown on an I1-yard run
in the fourth quarter to tie the
game at 9-9. Chipoletti's
touchdown run ended with the
athletic junior diving over
several Panther defenders into
the end zone for the score.
Chipoletti's diving score
night have left the Tornadoes
p point short of tying the game
hear the end if not for
:lackshear's earlier block of
,:he point-after attempt by the
panthers on their only
touchdown in the first half of
the closely contested game.
. Bradford opened the game
-with a long scoring drive,
starting at its 21-yard line and
:inoving deep into Panther
Territory behind the running.of
.exter Clayton and Chipoletti.
'The Tornadoes had five first
ownss on the drive, with
'-I


Clayton carrying the ball five
times for 32 yards.
Clayton would finish the
game with 109 yards on 17
carries, while Chipoletti
finished with 51 yards on .14
carries.
The drive stalled at the
Palatka 14 when Chipoletti's
third-down pass to Deantr6
Burch was just over his hands
in the end zone, leading to a
field goal and a 3-0 lead with
5:30 left in the first quarter.


Bradford's defense, which
was outstanding the entire
game, forced the Panthers to
punt on their first and second
possessions of the game.
Unfortunately for the
Tornadoes, punt returned
Ja'quez Calloway fumbled the
second punt, and the Panthers
recovered at the Bradford 1-
yard line. That led to a
touchdown on a quarterback
sneak on the following play.

Interlachen has to replace

minutes left in the first half.
The Tornadoes continued
their generous ways on their
ensuing possession when a
Chipoletti pass was tipped at
the line of scrimmage and
intercepted by the Panthers and
returned to the Bradford 10-
yard line.
Two plays later, it appeared
the Panthers had gone up by
another touchdown on a 10-
yard run, but a holding penalty
negated the score and moved
the ball back to the 17-yard
line. On the next play,
Bradford's Phillip James burst
through the line and knocked
the Panther quarterback down
for a 4-yard loss. After the
Panther quarterback tripped on
the next play for another 4-

for a 41-yard field goal and a
9-3 lead with seven minutes
remaining in the half.
The Tornadoes threatened
once more near the. end of the
half, driving the ball from their

Indians score 31 straight en route to 17-point win


BY BILLY GEIGER
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor
The Keystone Heights
football team managed to turn
it's Sept. 2 game against the
Hawthorne Hornets around
early and keep a strong lead
throughout, thanks in no small
part to running back Alex
Gonzales, who ran the greater
part of Keystone's four
touchdowns in the Indians' 31-
14 win.
Hawthorne was the third-
ranked team in Class IA, but
the Indians, after giving up the
first score of the game, built a
*31-6 lead, getting 194 yards on'
24 carries from Gonzales.
Gonzales, though, said it
was a total team effort.
"I'm really proud of the
team," he said. "We all work
together, and that's how it
ought to be. You have to work
as a team."


The Indians began to pull
away after a hard-fought half
in which four points separated
the teams.
"I think we wore 'em down
in the first quarter, and that
gave us a lot of momentum,"
Keystone Head Coach Chuck
Dickinson said. "Both teams
did great, and they really
pounded us first quarter. Our
kids played hard, and theirs
did, too."
There was a slight, cooling
breeze that Friday evening in
Hawthorne as the two teams
lined up. The first half of the
game saw the Indians kicking
off, and the Hornets wasted no
time securing the ball and
running down the field. They
moved all the way to the
Indians' 23-yard line before
Hornets ball runner Rodney
Singleton was brought down
by a host of Indians.
This didn't stop Singleton,


or the Hornets, who proceeded
with vociferous intent to rush
down the field, and a long pass
to Montrel Bryant netted them
their first touchdown early in
the first quarter. The Indians
were able to block the
conversion, leaving the score
at 6-0 in favor of the Hornets.
Then the ball came to the
Indians. Gonzales caught the
ensuing kickoff and ran 20
yards to the Indians' 30-yard
line, and the Indians
immediately thereafter
benefited from a 15-yard foul
levied against Hawthorne.
Soon after, an impressive
catch-and-carry maneuver by
Chase Julius saw a gain of 28
additional yards for the
Indians, and they -soon closed
the distance. They spent their
second and third downs at the
Hawthorne goal line before
finally breaking through the
Hornets' nest when Logan


Stanley successfully connected
on a 26-yard field goal,
bringing the score to 3-6 in the
last minute of the first quarter.
"I was excited-ready on
the sidelines right up until
coach called me," Stanley said.
"I helped the team out, and I
got to kick."
SStanley's field goal was an
ill omen for the Hornets, who
didn't fare as well in the
second quarter, with Stanley
intercepting a pass early on
and taking it to the Indians' 49.
A personal foul against the
Hornets gained the Indians
another 5 yards, granting a
foothold in Hawthorne
territory.
Several passes to Gonzales
helped move the team up to the
goal on a third-down play.
However, an incomplete pass
at a critical moment allowed
the Hornets to usurp control.
Once again, Singleton ran


the ball a great distance,
making it from the Hornets' 17
to their 34-yard line before
being tackled by William
Shaw. The Hornets' streak
ended there, with the Indians
preventing any more major
yardage from being gained.
The ball would continue to
bounce back and forth between
the two teams for most of the
second quarter. Singleton
intercepted for the Hornets,
and the Hornets lost the ball
after a long run by Bryant. It
wasn't until the last minute of
the quarter that the Indians
found themselves once again
struggling to break into the
Hornets' end zone.

Matthew Dickinson brought
Keystone to the goal line
before being taken out by
Singleton, and for the Indians'
next play, Gonzales ran the
ball all but the last yard to the


end zone before being downed.
Coach Dickinson called a
strategic timeout with less'than
30 seconds on the clock.
The crowd waited. The
teams lined up. The
countdown resumed. The
Indians lined up. Twenty-five
seconds, the ball is put into
play. Twenty seconds, the ball
is passed and passed again, the
end result a 2-yard score from
quarterback Evan Harvey to
Julius with just 15 seconds on
the clock.
Harvey finished the game 6-
of-l for 71 yards, while Julius
caught three passes for 47
yards.
Stanley kicked the ensuing
PAT, allowing Keystone to go
into the half up 10-6.
Dickinson said the score was
the biggest play of the game
following several miscues.

points on the course.
SOn days two through four,
soldiers rotated through one of


three testing lanes-the patrol
lane, the urban operations lane
and the traffic control point
lane. On each of the lanes they
faced 10 tasks, presented in a
manner they would see in a
combat environment, and one
decision task. The Guardsman


had 20 minutes to complete the
lane and complete eight of the
tasks correctly.
On each of the three lanes,
they were required to load and
clear one of three weapons
systems-the M4 assault rifle,
the M240B machine gun or the

M249 squad automatic
weapon-as well as fix any
malfunctions.
The testing ended with a 12-
mile road march. Soldiers had
three hours to complete the
march while carrying their M4,
a 35-pound rucksack, water,
Kevlar and load-bearing
equipment.
According to Command Sgt.
Maj. Stephen' Corrow, the
brigade command sergeant
major, an average of only 10
percent of infantrymen tested
will receive the EIB, making it
the most coveted award an
infantryman can receive.
"Most folks who wear the
EIB have probably made two
or three attempts at getting it,"
said Col. Sean Ward, the
deputy brigade commander.
"It's a challenge. Not
everybody gets it. Not
everybody can get it."
Ward attributes several
reasons to the difficulty of
obtaining the badge-"the
hands-on technical expertise
you must display, the physical
challenges and the mental
stresses that go along with it,


and the tough processes of
trying to keep everything
together."
The testing was kept to the
same standards as the active-
duty Army, and all of the
training lanes were validated
by officials from Fort Benning,
Ga.
Maintaining a high standard
of testing is what makes the
EIB such a high honor for
those who are able to earn it.
"You want to make sure that
when they earn the badge, they
feel like they've really earned
Something, and you also want
the other people who didn't
earn. it to be envious of what
someone else achieved," said
Lt. Col. David Yaegers, the
brigade executive officer.."It's
not much of an achievement if
the standards are low and it's
an easy task to do."
Each of the 40 graders, as
well as those on the EIB board,
had to have already earned
their EIBs. Because it has been
so long since the Florida
National Guard has done any
testing, qualified soldiers from
the state's recruiting and


retention battalion stepped in
to help fill the void. The
graders and the board played
an important role in upholding
a high standard throughout the
testing.
"I want to thank the badge
protectors for their role in this
process. It is they who link the
heritage of our past to the
experience of today," said Maj.
Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw, the
adjutant general of Florida.
The leadership of the 53"
Infantry Brigade Combat
Team plans to continue to
offer EIB testing as a way of
motivating and training their
soldiers to strive to be the best.
Because the brigade was
recently deployed, many of the
53" soldiers were not required
to attend annual training this
year, so there are still many
soldiers who would like to test
for the badge.
"The EIB tests the roots and
basics of what it means to be
an infantry soldier, and we are
coming back to those roots,"
Corrow said. "To earn.the EIB
is the symbol of infantry
excellence."


Newspapers Connect Communities


Strong communities are all about strong' relationships and connections;
citizens and their government; citizens and community businesses; local
government and local businesses; citizens and local, social cultural
institutions. Nothing facilitates or creates those relationships and
connections like America's community newspapers. In cities and towns
served by a community newspaper of 25,000 circulation or less, 86 percent
of the population read a community newspaper each week. No other media
has that kind of reach into and throughout those communities.
This is among the findings of the 2008 research conducted for the National
Newspaper association by the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri
School of Journalism at the University of Missouri. The findings are
consistent with two earlier research efforts by NNA and RJI's Center for
Advanced Social Research.
The connections between community newspapers and their readers, and
the resulting connection of those readers to local advertisers, remains strong
in communities across America. To many readers, the weekly advertisements
are a form of news, weekly specials or sales, the launch of new businesses
and services, the introduction of new products, and even a barometer of the
economic health and vitality of the community.

Along Main Street Across The Nation
* 79 percent of adults 18 and'older read the classified ads.
* 73 percent read the grocery or supermarket advertisements and/or inserts.
* Half rely most on their community newspaper for grocery shopping
information. That's twice that of the next most relied source: In-store
promotions. And 10 times more than the third most relied upon source:
Direct mail.
* 72 percent of community newspaper readers read the hardware and home
improvement advertisements.
* About 28 percent rely most on their community newspaper for home
improvement shopping information. That's about 50' percent more than the
next most relied upon source: In-store promotions. And three times more
than the third most relied upon source: The Internet.
* 66 percent of community newspaper readers read the department store ads'
* 65 percent of community newspapers readers read the discount store ads.
* 62 percent of community newspaper readers read the public notice ads.
* 81 percent believe government should be required to publish public notices
in the local newspaper:
A'bout''8 percent of all adults said they rarely or never use the radio to
make piirhasing decisions; 69 percent said they rarely or never use direct
mail to 'make purchasing decisions; 59 percent say they rarely or never use
TV to rimake purchasing decisions; 58 percent said they rarely or never use
the Yellow Pages for buying decisions; 41 percent said they rarely or never
use the Internet for buying decisions.
However, 71 percent found newspaper ads helpful in making purchasing
decisions. That compares with almost 50 percent in 2007 and 41 percent in
2005.
"It's clear that newspapers provide a strong connection between local
readers and local businesses and services," says John Stevenson, NNA


president and publisher of the Randolph Leader in Roanoke, AL.
This year's survey asked questions that had been asked in a.similar
Canadian study.
* About 79 percent of respondents said they would rather look through
newspaper ads than watch ads on TV. This compares to 61 percent in the
Canadian survey.
* Three-quarters of adults said they would rather look through newspaper
ads than view ads on the Internet.
* A little more than 70 percent somewhat-to-strongly agree that they go
looking for and through newspaper ads. This is comparable to the
Canadian response.
* Nearly 70 percent somewhat-strongly agree that they enjoy reading
advertising in their local paper. This compares to 66 percent in the
Canadian survey.
"Buyers read newspapers." said Brian Steffens, NNA's executive director,
"and our research shows there is no stronger media for connecting a
community, its people, government and economic vibrancy."
* About 78 percent of those surveyed said they planned to purchase health
or medical products or services in the next year.
* 73 percent plan to buy women's clothing.
* 60 percent plan to buy men's clothing.
* 58 percent plan to purchase "travel," air, hotel, cruise, rental car, etc.
* 52 percent plan to purchase lawn and garden supplies or services.
* 41 percent plan to buy electronics, Newspapers and the Internet were tied
as the most relied upon source for electronics shopping information.
* Nearly 35 percent plan to buy cell phones or cell phone service.
Newspapers and the Internet were tied, right behind in-store promotion, as
the most relied upon source for cell phone shopping information.
* 34 percent plan to buy financial or insurance products or services.
* 25 percent plan to buy furniture.
* 28 percent rely most on their community newspaper for information for
home furniture shopping. That's about 4 percent more than the second
most relied upon source: In-store promotions; and more than twice that of
the third most relied upon source: The Internet.
* 16 percent plan to buy appliances.
* 26 percent rely most on their community newspaper for information for
major appliance purchase, 7 percent more than the next most relied upon
source: In-store information and the Internet (tie); and four times more
than the fourth most relied upon source, magazines.
* 11 percent plan to buy a used vehicle.
* 9 percent plan to buy a new vehicle.
* Readers rely equally on newspapers, dealerships and the Internet for
information for new car purchases (about 18 percent each).
"That's a solid shopping list for Main Street America." Stevenson said,
"And community newspapers help both buyers and sellers."

Tigers' offense gets on track in 29-3 win over Pirates


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
An offense that was
nonexistent in a preseason win
over Bradford showed up in a
big way to open the regular
season as the Union County
football team compiled more
than 400 yards in a 29-3 win
over Fernandina Beach on
Sept. 2 in Fernandina.
Union Head Coach Ronny
Pruitt said his inexperienced
offensive line had a tough time
dealing with a talented, fast
defense in its preseason
kickoff classic against
Bradford in which the Tigers
finished with negative yardage.
Therefore, it was more work
on the fundamentals of
blocking people leading up to
the Fernandina game.
"We went out (last) week
and just kind of went back
over the basics," Pruitt said.
"Throwing the ball opens up a
lot of things, too, so that
helped."
The Tigers are a
predominantly running team,
but running and passing
clicked in the win over the
Class 4A Pirates. Josh Tyson
rushed for 155 yards and two
touchdowns on 28 carries,
while Austin Harden
completed 8-of-12 passes for
108 yards and two
touchdowns.
"I'm proud of them," Pruitt
said, "but we've got a long
ways to go. (Fernandina's) a
bigger school, but they're
rebuilding."
The Pirates had a 44-yard
drive to open the second half--
though that was helped by an

"We killed ourselves in the
first quarter," Dickinson said.
"Really shot ourselves in the
foot; a lot of bad snaps. Other
than that, we did great."
Keystone's offense started
the second half with a couple
of big plays as runs of 25 and
10 yards by Gonzales and
Bruce Kirksey, respectively,
put Keystone past midfield.
The team, though, then lost
yards, followed by a pass that
came up short.
On a fourth-down play, the
Hornets seemed to gain a
second wind; Singleton
intercepted a pass and ran all
the way to the Indians' 28-yard
line. The Hornets again handed
the ball to Singleton, but this
time, Keystone's own Gordon
Stinson brought the Hawthorne
player down early. By their
fourth-down play, the Hornets
stood at the 13-yard line. It
looked as though the team had
regained its vigor and was
preparing to strike, but through
some fancy maneuvering, the
Indians managed to stay on top
of the Hornets and prevent
them from gaining any more
distance.
The ball went back to
Keystone, and the Indians
wasted no time letting the
Hornets know who owned
their side of the field. Their
first play saw them pass the
ball across the air, with the

unsportsmanlike call against
Union-that resulted in their
only points-a 33-yard field
goal by Cody Cosper. Oustide
of that drive, Fernandina
managed just 23 yards against
a stingy Union defense.
"They get to the ball, and
they're fast," Pruitt said of his
defensive players. "They get to
the ball, they like to.hit and
they have fun at it."
Fernandina never could get
tailback Tai Dunwood and
fullback Jordan Holland on
tiack as Union limited the
Pirates to 54 yards on 28
carries.
The Tigers' run game was


receiver making it all the way
to the'25-yard line. A 5-yard
penalty against the Hornets
saw the Indians advance
further still. Then, in another
amazing feat of athleticism,
the Indians handed Gonzales
the ball, and the young man
took it all the way to the
Hornets' 9-yard line before
being downed.
First-and-goal, and the
crowd was going wild on both
sides of the stadium. The next
play saw Gonzales take the
ball again, and this time he
made good on a touchdown.
The PAT was successful,
bringing the Indians up another
seven points to lead 17-6.
After the kickoff, Jamar
White of Hawthorne ran the
ball all the way up to the
Hornets' 44. The Indians gave
up more yards to the Hornets
due to an offsides foul, but
Keystone was able to keep the
Hornets near the middle of the

on the ground. Tyson was the
workhorse with seven carries,
including 17- and 16-yard
runs, but it was Harden who
capped the drive with an 11-
yard touchdown toss to Dylan
Clark. The extra-point kick
was no good, but the Tigers
had drawn first blood and led
6-0 at the 5:45 -mark of the
opening quarter.
Fernandina was able to gain
a first down on its first series,
but the Tigers clamped down
defensively. Kendall Wright
made the initial hit on
quarterback Cole Willis for a


field until the control of the
ball'could switch sides.
The Indians once again
looked to Gonzales, who ran to
the Hornets' 40-yard line.
However, a flag against
Keystone pushed them back to
the 48. Gonzales managed to
carry the ball 15 yards to the
33 before the end of the third
quarter.
The final countdown began,
and the Indians wasted no time
when play resumed, with
Tra'Von Thomas carrying the
ball for a first down. The team
then moved to the Hornets'
goal line, and Gonzales
snatched another touchdown
from the air. Things began to
look grim for the Hornets. The
PAT was good for a 24-6 score
in favor of the Indians.
Things then got wild. The
Hornets regained the ball and
ran it to their own 41-yard line
before control went back to the
Indians (due to the tackled

1-yard loss, then followed that
up by dropping Holland for no
gain. On third down, it was
Raymond Randolph dumping
Holland behind the line of
scrimmage.
That drive would be the high
point for the Pirates in a first
half that saw the Union offense
control the ball. Fernandina
had two more offensive
possessions in the half, going
three-and-out on each and
gaining 6 yards.
The Pirates had 26 yards
overall in the first half.
Walter Mabery, who rushed
for 91 yards' on five carries,
had the Tigers quickly on the
move on their second offensive

Indians made their next move,
but they were beaten back by
the Hornets. The carrier
dropped the ball, and the
Hornets stole back their
control. Next play by the
Hornets went the same way:
The Indians pushed them even
farther and stole the ball once
more via interception.
Keystone pushed its way to
Hawthorne's 49, then to the
30. An impressive pass by an
saw the team advance all the
way to the 9-yard line. The
team made a smaller gain,
closing to the 3. The end zone
was near. Thomas ran the ball.
He was nearly clobbered three
different times, but he made it
in unscathed, and the PAT
made the Indians' victory all
but a certainty at 31-6 in the
last half of the last quarter.
Hawthorne capped the
scoring with a 25-yard
touchdown pass.

on the first play from
scrimmage and galloped 62
yards to the Fernandina 15.
Three plays later, a 5-yard
reception by Prince Alexander
set up first-and-goal at the 2. A
1-yard run by Harden set up
Tyson's 1-yard dive over the
top of the defense and into the
end zone five seconds into the
second quarter. Another failed
PAT followed, but the Tigers
led 12-0.
Union went three-and-out on
its next series, but killed the
final 5:20 of the first half the'

result was a 13-yard, 84-yard


scoring drive.
Tyson carried the ball on
eight of the drive's first'nine
plays, gaining 45 yards, while
a roughing-the-passer call gave
the Tigers a first down at the
Fernandina 41 with 21 seconds
on the clock. Harden
completed an 8-yard pass to
Clark, followed by an 18-yard
pass to Wright. With two
seconds' before halftime,
Wright took a pass in the flat
and ran diagonally toward the
opposite sideline, capping a
15-yard scoring play as time
expired. Harden found Clark

last season.
Opponents scored an
average of 34 points per game
against the Rams last season,
though Interlachen gave up
just 14 points in the one-point
loss to Paxon last week.
Middle linebacker Jared
Makatura returns after leading
the team with 128 tackles last
season.

Fernandina still
struggling on offense
Keystone hosts a Fernandina
Beach team that had its
struggles on offense last
season, averaging nine points
per game in a 1-9 season. That
trend-seemed to continue in the
29-3'"loss to Union last week in
which the Pirates gained a total
67 yards.
Against "the Tigers,
Fernandina rushed for 54 yards
on 28 carries, while
quarterback Cole Willis was 2-
of-5 passing for 13 yards.
Though the Tigers scored 29
points against the Pirates, that
was still quite less than what
opponents averaged last year.
The Pirates gave up an average
of 44 points per game last
season, with two opponents
scoring more than 50 points
and one scoring more than 70.
Union's offense compiled
422 yards, which included a
314-yard effort on the ground.
The Tigers scored twice on the
ground and twice through the
air.
SSome key returners from last
year's Fernandina team
include senior safety Trey
Morris, senior offensive tackle
Toby Williams and senior
running back Tai Dunwood.


Walter Mabery drops Fernandina fullback Jordan Holland for a minimal gain.

on the two-point conversion to
send Union into the break up
20-0.
Clark and Wright finished
the game with three receptions
each, with Clark gaining 37
yards and Wright gaining 49.
The Pirates had the ball to
start the second half, but
appeared as if they were on the
verge of another three-and-out.
However, they avoided a third-
and-long play when Union was
flagged for unsportsmanlike
conduct. They then picked up
two first downs on runs by
Holland and another on an 8-
yard pass play. Fernandina had
a third-and-5 at the Union 14
when Wright recorded a sack
for a loss of 2 yards. The
Pirates settled for Cosper's
field goal, which made the
score 20-3 with approximately
six minutes left in the third
quarter.__
Union put together a 69-yard
scoring drive that started late

passes on the drive to Kenny
Dinkins, Burch, Clayton and
Brandon Thomas. Clayton also
had a 23-yard run to the
Panther 15, eluding several
tacklers with a few quick cuts.
The Panthers helped during
the drive also with a costly 15-
yard personal foul penalty.
Palatka ended the game with
nine penalties for 76 yards,
compared to Bradford's six
penalties for 31 yards.
From the I1, Chipoletti
scored on his acrobatic dive,
but then missed the PAT,
which would have put the
Tornadoes up by one with six'
minutes left in the game.


in the quarter. Tyson had a
keyl6-yard run on a second-
and-19 play, which enabled
Harden to draw the Pirates
offside on a hard count to pick
up a first down. Clark and
Alexander had receptions of 8
and 17 yards, respectively, to
pick up two more first downs,
with Alexander's catch setting
the Tigers up at the Fernandina
25.
A 10-yard run by Alexander
resulted in another first down
before Tyson eventually
capped the drive with an 8-
yard touchdown run on which
he went virtually untouched
into the end zone. That put the
score at 26-3 with 7:05 to play.
For all intents and purposes,
the game was over, but Pruitt
wanted to continue working on
the passing gam6 in order to
improve and give future
opponents something else to
worry about. That's why he
had Harden attempt three
passes on a drive that began
with : approximately five
minutes left to play.
"We've got to get better at
throwing the ball," Pruitt said.


The Panthers had two more
opportunities on offense in
regulation, but big stops by
James, Wyatt Manning,
Lyndell Hampton and the
Tornado defensive line forced
punts on both possessions.
Bradford also had an
opportunity to drive for a go-
ahead score in the final
minutes, but stalled at midfield
after starting at their 27-yard
line. On fourth down, the
Tornadoes punted with two
minutes left in the game.
After Blackshear's block
sealed the game in overtime,
an emotionally spent Bradford
Head Coach Derek Chipoletti
was proud of the way his team
hung in after the costly
mistakes in the first half and
fought back in the second.
"I don't like these types of


"That's why we wanted to
kind of get that in there. I hope
nobody thinks we were trying
to run anything up. We're not
a throwing team. Everybody
knows that, so we've got to get
it on film that we can throw."
It was basically the same
sort of philosophy when Pruitt
called a time out with two
seconds left to allow Joaquin
Lovo to kick a 20-yard field
goal that capped the scoring.
The kicking game is an area
where Pruitt wants to improve,
especially after being
unsuccessful on every extra-
point kick attempted last
season.
Lovo joined the team just
last week and has no previous
experience kicking. He missed
two PATs earlier in the game,
and Pruitt did not want those
misses to be what he left the
game with.
"I wanted to get him back in
there and build his
confidence," Pruitt said. "He
doesn't have a clue what this is
all about. This is all new to
him."


games, but we've worked hard,
and the kids never gape up,"
he said. "We went 7-3 last
year, and these kids are
expecting to win now. I'm
proud of them."
Chipoletti also praised his
team's defense, saying the unit
played pretty close to perfect.
"They were leading
everything good when they
lined up, and they're fast and
can get to the play wherever it
goes."



Above all things, never be
afraid. The enemy who
forces you to retreat is
himself afraid of you at
that very moment.
-Andre Maurois
