Office of elections supervisor open for business


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

An open house was held at
the new location of the office of
the Union County supervisor of
elections on Dec. 19, to celebrate
not only the new location but also
the building's renovations and
those responsible for the work of
getting it ready for use.
The relocation of the office is
complete, it is set up and in full
swing. Even the decorations are
complete. On the wall of the
lobby, there are portraits of the
past supervisors of elections
including: George A. Epperson
1920-1930, Dallie Epperson
1930-1952, Beatrice Courson
1952-1964, Lottie Lee Archer
1964-1984, Barbara A. "Babs"
Montpetit 1984-2007, and
current Supervisor of Elections
Debbie Osborne.
The front counter was
constructed with a partial glass
facing for display purposes.
Decorated inside is a full nativity
-scene. Stockings are hung and
a Christmas tree is set up at the
entrance, decorated in patriotic
holiday d6cor.
Renovations began several
months back after the county
purchased the building from
the First Christian Church. The
building belonged to the county
once before when it was the home
of.the Union County Library .
The "old library" was a very
open building, constructed as
if it was one large room. Lake
Butler Reception and Medical


Center (RMC) completed all >l'
the renovations using innmte
I bor..a ig ithe countL1 he cui.t
a project of this scale would ha\ e
entailed.
The new building was designed
to accommodate the space
needed for personnel, training
and voting. New walls were
placed providing separate rooms.
There are now three offices, a
lobby with a service counter and
waiting area, an early voting area,
a 700-square-foot work/training
area,a break room, a storage area
and a vault.
The vault was a part of the
original building when it was a
bank, prior to the time it served as
the library. The vault will be put
to good use in storing important
documents that have to be kept
in a fire-proof area per Florida
statutes.
The back drive through, also
from the buildings bank days,
was removed and replaced with a
door. With this, voters can enter
through the front, complete their
ballots and feed them into the
machine, and then exit through
the back,causing less congestion.
At the previous office location,
voting booths had to be placed
in the courthouse hallway, which
caused pedestrian congestion.
The work/training' area
provides the space needed for
all training, but will also be
used ,during election nights
for the public, with the totals
available on a big screen. In

Environmental cleanup progresses


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

The Lake Butler
environmental cleanup began
as scheduled to clear away high
concentrations of petroleum
contaminants in the soil on the
lots located between S.R. 100
(Main Street) and Southwest
1st Street beside the A&M
discount beverage store.
Fences have been placed
around the property for
safety as the large machinery
removes and replaces the
contaminated soil.
In a recent interview
with City Manager Dave
Mecusker, the reason for the
contamination was explained.
Gasoline saturated the soil in
several areas of Lake Butler
due to leakage of tanks at
old gas stations back in the
late 1940s and 1950s. All
of the affected areas have
been excavated over the
years except for this one.
The urgency of the project
increased due to the threat of
the contaminants reaching the
underground water supply.
This project was designed and
is underway to prevent this
from occurring.
Both countyandcity officials
agreed that source removal


Heavy equipment works on removing contaminated soil
from the site.


(digging up the contaminated
soil) is warranted at these
sites.
The project is estimated to
last 100 days. Routes have
been established for incoming
and outgoing dump trucks in
an attempt to help the flow of
traffic.
Increased traffic congestion
should be expected between
Lake Avenue and S.R. 100
going toward Lake City, and
S.R. 238 to C.R. 100 until the
project is complete.
Local businesses
surrounding the site will


remain open during the
construction to include:
Sunrise Food Mart, Sunrise
Laundromat, Hungry Howie's
Pizza and Subs and TD Bank.
The progress of this project
will be monitored by the city
on its website to keep the
public informed. A meter
will be present to display the
amount of progress made
weekly.

3 injured in S.R. 100 crash Dec. 14


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor
The Florida Highway Patrol cited a Lake City
man for careless driving in a Dec. 14 three-car
collision in eastern Union County.
According to an FHP report, Harlos Deon
Thomas, 30, was following a white Chevrolet
Malibu driven by Cailyn. B. Stalnaker, 26, of
Lake Butler eastbound on S.R. 100 when Stal-
naker stopped to make a left turn onto Northeast


C.R. 237. Thomas' Toyota ran into the back
of the Malibu, pushing Stalnaker's car into the
westbound lane where it was struck by another
Toyota driven by Daniel J. Dobrian, 57, of Haw-
thorne.
Thomas ano Dobrian were seriously injured
and transported to Shands UF. Stalnaker received
minor injuries. All three drivers were wearing
seat belts and alcohol was not involved in the
.7:45 a.m. crash. A trooper at the scene said glare
from the morning sun might have contributed to
the collision.

neighborhood children. When
her youngest daughter started
school, she sought a position as a
secretary, but soon missed being
with the children.
After receiving her associate
of arts degree from Lake City
Community College, she was
officially hired by the district in
1982 as a substitute teacher and
paraprofessional. She worked
full time at the school while
seeking her bachelor's degree in
early childhood and elementary
education from the University of
North Florida.
After graduating in 1984,
Crawford took a teaching
position in third grade at
LBES. The following year, she
requested to fill an open position
in kindergarten, "I prefer the
younger grades and I love being
a child's first teacher," said
Crawford. She would continue to
teach kindergarten until leaving
the public school system in
1987 to become a home school
educator and evaluator for K-12.
Over the course of the next
nine years, Crawford would
continue home schooling her
own children while providing
evaluation and support services

to numerous children throughout
north and central Florida. "There
is nothing she couldn't do,"
said former home school parent
Sylvia Wilkerson. "She wouldn't
tell you how to do something she
would come to your home and
show you."
As a result of her youngest
daughter graduating, Crawford
returned to LBES as a
kindergarten teacher in the fall of
2006. "I could have remained at
home, but I felt that God wanted


Renia Smith


to use me in the public school
system," she said.
Not one to toot her own horn,
Crawford's peers describe her as
the type to teach "old school" stuff
by finding time to demonstrate
cooking, sewing, wheat grinding
and ice cream making to her
students. According to fellow
teacher Dodie Sapp, "Her kids
are taught how gentlemen and
ladies act. The boys hold the
door for the girls and treat them
with the utmost respect."


In regards to her award,
Crawford said, "I am so humbled
that I was selected for this award.
It was an honor just to have my
name beside the other wonderful
teachers that were nominated. If
there is any good that can be said
of me, it is because of the grace
of God."

Smith named
LBES school-
related
employee of
the year
BY TAMMY WILKERSON
Special to the Times

Behind every great school is
an even better employee, accord-
ing to staff members at Lake But-
ler Elementary School. Recently
they named Food Service Mem-
ber Renia Smith as the School-
Related Employee of the Year
for 2011-2012.

Smith has been employed
with the Union County School
District for the past 10.5 years.
She plays a vital role in the daily
routines of the LBES cafeteria.
"Proper preparation of the food


being served is one of the most
important things you can do in
the kitchen," said LBES Food
Service Manager Christy Griffis.
"Each of the employees is,trained
to handle a variety of positions
and tasks so that if the need
ever arises, someone can jump
in and take over at a moment's
notice-something Smith does
very well."

For this reason, Smith ac-
complishes tasks ranging from
cooking, cleaning, serving, orga-
nizing and more. The Tiger Cub
Cafe serves breakfast, lunch, and
after-school tutoring. snacks to
nearly 1,000 students on a daily
basis.
"Preparing a well-balanced,
nutritional meal is something
Smith takes personally," said
Assistant Food Service Manager
Barbara Ward. In addition, Smith
also assists the elementary school
staff in providing a safe environ-
ment for the students as they eat
their lunches: *

She is described by her peers
as a team player with a positive
attitude. According to Betsy
Whitehead, head of the Union
County School System's Food
Service Department, "She is a
serious worker with a great at-
tendance record!"

Food Pantry hosts holiday event


Food donations, like the one given by this family, help other families in need. (L-R)
Michelle and David Brannen with the Food Pantry's Santa.


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor
Members of Lake Butler Food
Pantry have been busy getting
ready for the holidays, but
food donations aren't the only
donations the pantry receives.
John Johnson, Henry Filer,
Danny Settles, Felicia Settles,
Brittany Crawford, Amber
Crawford, Michael Crawford
and Janet Norsworthy are all
volunteers at the pantry. The
positions these individuals hold
are not paid. It is a donation
of their time. According to
volunteer Felicia Settles, "The
smiles and tears of those we help
is the payment we receive."
On Dec. 16, members of the
pantry came together to host a
cookout with Santa. Hot dogs,
chips and drinks were served
to help raise funds. Santa was


available for pictures and to wave
at passing cars and pedestrians.
Santa remained available for
pictures Dec 19-21.
Food donations are steadily
being accepted but, no sooner
than the shelves are stocked, the
shelves run bare again after the
food is given to those in need.
Food pantry volunteers said
they always try to recognize all
who donate and give thanks.
"Without these donations, what
we do wouldn't be possible,"
said Settles.
The members of the food
pantry say they would like to
thank the following people: May
Watson, the Tollison family,
David and Michelle Brannen,
the Lake Butler Social Club,
Jessica Howell, Troy Underhill,
Fellowship Baptist Church,
Greater Elizabeth Missionary


Baptist Church, Southern
Comfort, Lake Butler Hospital,
Frankie and Shanna Ray,
Union County Public Library,
the University of Florida, Sue
Stalnaker, Richard and Linda
Robinson,the Veterans of Foreign
Wars, Spirits for the New Sign,
the UCI Employees Club and
Employee Benefit Trust Fund,
and RMC.

RMC helped with the
Thanksgiving baskets, donating
both food and turkeys. RMC will
also be providing the'pantry with
food for the Christmas baskets.
The facility staff was asked to
donate at least one non-perishable
item if possible. With the number
of RMC employees, the donation
is expected to help many. RMC
will also be donating turkeys for
the Christmas baskets as well.

Does one have'to be in the Church to be saved?
Many people today want salvation but at the same time want
nothing to do with the Church. Let us see if it is possible for one
to be saved today without being a part of the Church. In Acts
2:47 we read, "The Lord added to the church daily those who
were being saved." According to the Bible the saved are added
by God to the Church and thus it follows that if one is saved they
have been added to the Church. We also should note that the
Church is the body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23) and the Bible
says that Jesus is the Savior of the body (Ephesians 5:23). Jesus
will only save those in the body and anyone outside of the body
will be lost.
As we talked about last week, one is saved at the point of
baptism (Mark 16:16). It is at this same point that one is added
to the Church (Acts 2:38, 41, 47). If you would like to study the
Bible further, please contact us.

Longtime P.E. teacher Williams set to retire from BMS


BY (l.I FFSMELLEY
Regional .\'en S''lrts Editor
Annie Williams may have
presented a tough exterior to
the students she had at
.Bradford Middle School, but
that was because inside she
harbored a love for children
and wanted to do her best to
help them as they matured
through life.
That's something Williams
has done for 33 years at
Bradford Middle School and
for 37 years overall. She will
miss those opportunities to
impact young lives as she is set
to retire at the end of January.
"For the children's sake, I'll
be kind of sad," she said.
Williams, who taught P.E.'
and health, said she knows that
students have viewed her as a
teacher who was hard on them,
but students simply got from
Williams what she gave to her
biological children. Williams
and her husband, Joe, have
five grown children who all
thought the same thing when
they were growing up-that
Williams was mean.
"I was kind of hard-nosed,"
Williams admitted. "I guess
the.children would say it was
mean, but I considered it tough
love-being firm and being
consistent with what you say."
In the end, though,
Williams' children and many
former students have thanked
her as adults for her tough,
demanding ways. They
realized she cared and realized
she had some part'in helping
them become successful in
life.
More importantly, they came
to realize there was something
beneath that tough, demanding
exterior.
"Some people judge me
from the outside, but they
know my heart," Williams
said. "You can't judge people

from their outer appearance."
Williams, of course, can
thank her parents for the
values they instilled in her
which she in turn tried to instill
in her students. That desire to
see her students do right,
though, can also be chalked up
to the entire Mississippi
community in which she grew
up. Everyone knew each other
and all held children
accountable for what.they did.
As Williams described, if she
was caught misbehaving by
someone in her home town,
that person would think
nothing of chastising her.


It was indeed a village
raising a child, Williams said,
referencing the African
proverb that was popularized
by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
It's something that's lacking in
today's world, Williams said.
"I'm not saying people don't
care," she said, "but more
people got involved in our
lives as I was growing up. It
didn't matter who it was-
white or black."
As a child growing up in
Mississippi, Williams fell in
love with basketball. She
played for Gloster High School
and was quite good. Williams
said she dreamed of playing


basketball professionally.
Williams had several nieces
and nephews who played
various sports at the college
level and professionally. That
and her love of basketball
helped steer her toward
becoming a P.E. teacher. Plus,
Williams said, "Children were
always the love of my life."
She went on to graduate
from Alcorn State
University-which was Alcorn
.A&M College at that time-in
Lorman, Miss. Then, she
returned to Gloster High,
where her teaching career
began.
Williams' father operated a


trucking business, which led
Williams to take a trip to
Florida to dispatch some of her
father's trucks. That took her
to Archer.
The Florida weather and
sand, as opposed to the red
clay in Mississippi, appealed
to Williams.
"That's where I fell in love
with Florida," she said. "I told
my dad it's where I wanted to
live. I went back to Mississippi
and resigned. I came to Florida
and got a job at Williston
Middle School."
Williams taught in Williston
for more than two years, but
changes in regard to the P.E.,
music and art programs at the
time had her looking for
another job. She knew a
woman in Gainesville who
worked for the Alachua
County School Board and who
helped her find an opening at
Bradford Middle School.
After brief stints at two
different schools, Williams
found her home, staying at
BMS for more than 30 years.
She never envisioned she
would've stayed that long.
"l made it by the grace of
God," Williams said. "1 just
pray and hope the rest (of the
teachers to follow) will be as
successful as I have been."
Spirituality is a big,part of
Williams' life. She gives credit
to God for everything she has
accomplished and leans on him
through the down and trying
times. Several Bible verses are
important to her in her day-to-
day life, including Psalms
121:1-2 ("1 will lift up mine
eyes unto the hills from
whence cometh my help; my
help cometh from the Lord,
which made heaven and
earth") and Proverbs 3:5-6
("Trust in the Lord with all
thine heart and lean not unto
thine own understanding; In all


thy ways, acknowledge him,
and he shall direct they
paths").
Williams, who attends
Mount Olive Primitive Baptist
Church in Gainesville, said, "I
have a real spiritual belief that
God can get you through
anything." She can look back
at her life, not only raising five
children but working several
jobs to support them and give
them what they needed.
Williams' husband was a
manager at a Winn Dixie, and
it was hard for him to go out
and work at another job.
"I had to make a lot of
sacrifices," she said.
All of Williams' children
went to college and all are
living successful lives. All are
married but one, she said,
adding, "I'm just waiting for
God to answer my prayer."
In light of her spiritual life,
it was gratifying for Williams
to have "been involved with
starting a Fellowship ''of
Christian Athletes chapter at
BMS. She was also involved in
the formation of the school's
interscholastic sports program,
which evolved into joining the
Suwannee Middle School
Athletic Conference.
Williams coached the
volleyball and girls' basketball
teams-she also helped coach
track and field at Bradford
High School-and won several
conference championships,
some of which capped
undefeated seasons.
"Most every year I coached,
I either was a runner-up or
won the SMAC tournament,"
Williams said.
Competing for
championships and winning
trophies is nice, but Williams
said the sports were also a way

An education is a great gifi


Santa Fe College's graduation is al-
. ways a time for students, parents, fam-
ily and friends to celebrate. Area resi-
dents are always proud when one of
their own is among the graduates.
That's been Santa Fe's story in Brad-
ford County for more than two decades.
Graduates from Bradford High School
and other schools start their college
adventure in downtown Starke at the
Andrews Center. Many have to receive
special help in remediation and other
areas. This is a much easier beginning
when you are among professional peo-
ple who know you and care about your
future.
The Santa Fe campus at Starke is the
most important thing that has happened
to our community in 25 years. Thou-
sands of residents have taken courses
and many are graduates, with a good


education leading to employment. Th
ability to start here, get as many course
as possible and then go to the big can
pus to complete y6ur course of study
a super advantage.
College has become and will continue
to be expensive. Many of our student
(young and old) need a little help wii
expenses. Anyone can fund a schola
ship or donate money toward tuition fo
Sour community students.

If you want to invest in a person
future, help educate them. Call Cher
Canova at the college (904-964-5382
She will tell you the success stories (
numerous students who took the b
step of furthering their education at ti
Andrews Center on their way to a goo

In defense
of SFCflag
incident
Dear Editor:
It was...my. privilege to'
observe the incident reported
in the last issue regarding the
alleged desecration of the
American flag and the ensuing
humdrum in the parking.lot of
the Santa Fe Cdllege Andrews
SCenter.
In disclosure, I am not
-affiliated with Santa Fe
- College any more than as the
husband of a, student. I am
writing to express
disappointments ihat a letter to
the editQ --L.ven though this
section :ekists precisely for
members of the community to
express themselves in their
own words-would be
published at' uch length and
with such bi No, this was
not an objective news article-
but this gentleman's letter
negatively implicates two
recognizable; identifiable
employees of Santa Fe
College, perhaps to their
detriment in public opinion
and in the eyes of their
employers...
Three flags touched the
ground: they'were not slung
haphazardly there, they were
not spit on, they were not
stomped on, they were, not
burned. These flags were
subsequently and dutifully


folded. The security guard
expressed no malice, no
protest, and certainly no
treason. Last week's letter does
not reflect reality. The actions
of the security guard were in
all honesty a non-issue.
So, since this is also a letter


to the editor, I want to give
your readers something to
think about: In this instance,
would such anger and libel
result were the-security guard
not of African descent?
Cheers.

In the report that I received
in October of 2009, only 32
accounts were behind in their
payments. Only one
commercial account was 120
days late. Most of the other
accounts were the Bradford
Fair Association or the state of
Florida. No one else was seven
months behind.
One of the ethics board's
reasons was that during the
interviews, a city
commission had told Mrs.
Johns to work with people
whose bills were late and were
having a .hard time paying
them. In Febuary of 2008. the

I known better...
Dear Editor:
First I would like to take this
opportunity to wish all the
residents and business owners
of the city of Starke a very
merry Christmas and
e especially a prosperous new
year.
es The year 2012 is going to be
n- the best year that Starke has
is seen in years. You ask how I
would know this? Well, let me
Le explain. On Dec. 2 everyone
ts ~ who pays a utility bill in Starke
received an early Christmas
th gift courtesy of the State of
t- Florida Commission on Ethics
3r Board. In 2009 when I was
asking for public records from
our city (most of which I still
do not have), I discovered that
's a business which our city clerk
yl has an interest in had not paid
Z). a utility bill for more than
of seven months.
ig In December of 2009, 1 filed
he a complaint with the Ethics
he Board. One year later in 2010
)d they decided that there was
probable cause to believe that
al Linda Johns had committed an
S ethics violation. After doing an
investigation throughout the
year and interviewing several
employees and several
commissioners, they reached
ised the conclusion that she had
you done nothing wrong. They say
you that other businesses were also
iced late.


that all utility customers shall
be allowed to extend the time
for payment of their bills twice
per calendar year. It also states
the extension shall not be more
than seven days. This does not
apply to business accounts.
So I feel with their ruling the
state of Florida (ethics board)
is saying that it is OK... that
no one has to pay their bill for
seven, months. Can you
imagine how many jobs will
be created because of all the
extra money we will be able to
spend?
The biggest customer that
will get a giant boost from this
is the school system. They will
be able to hire so many
teachers that class size will
only be one or two students.
We will have better-educated
students than most colleges
produce.
Earlier this year, I started a
petition drive asking the state
to come in and do an audit on
the city. We ran into a snag
and did not quite get all the
signatures needed. I waited to
complete this drive thinking
that the ethics board would do
something. How stupid do I
feel? I should have known
better than to believe that this
would happen. We will be
starting this drive up again
soon. Anyone who has not
signed this petition and would
like to, or anyone who would
like to help get signatures,
please give me a call at 904-
966-1150.
We need to take action to
take our city back because no
one else will.
Thank you,
Lee Sparks

LB manager
clarifies
situation
Dear Editor:
My name is Dave Mecusker,
city manager for the great city
of Lake Butler. I would like to
give you some background
information about myself. I
moved to Lake Butler in 1960


and have maintained a
permanent address in 'either
Lake Butler or Union County
for the duration of that time. I
am currently building my
retirement home west of Lake
Butler. I graduated from Union
County High School in 1968,
received my associate's degree
from Lake City Community
College (1970), bachelor's
degree in education and
mathematics from the
University of Florida (1973)
and a bachelor's degree in
accounting from the University
of North Florida (1976). I
retired from the Florida
Department of Corrections
after 37 years of service.
During my career with FDOC,
I held the positions of
accountant II, business
manager I, II and III, chief of
regional administration for
Region IV and director of
internal auditing for the entire
state.
When I interviewed for the
position of city manager in
2010, this was a career dream
of working with the city of
Lake Bulter as its city
manager. I have an open-door
policy to all citizens, as my
salary is paid by taxpayers and
I am a servant to them. I am
not a politician, but I have
great respect for anyone who
wants to venture into that
arena. I have no hidden
agenda. I only want to serve
the citizens of Lake Butler and
do what is right and fair for the
people.
My management style is one
of accountability and
transparency. I have made
mistakes along this journey
and I have admitted them. lido
not make operational changes
without direction from the city
commission. I believe that
decisions are best made by a
well-informed city
commission.
I met your Union County

commission meeting. We

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Justin McBride scored eight

couple of Union County rallies
in a 49-44 win on Dec. 20 in
the first round of the Lake
Area McDonald's Christmas
Tournament, hosted at
Bradford High School by the
Kiwanis Club of Starke.
The Tornadoes (5-2 prior to
Dec. 21) led by 16 in the third
quarter, but Union went on a
13-2 run to close out the
quarter. Austin Dukes scored
on a layup for the Tigers,
*while Shaimea Maeweather
made two free throws and a
basket following two Bradford
turnovers.
Another turnover, after a
basket by Dukes, led to a score
by Maeweather, which pulled
the Tigers to within 31-25.
Chris Alexander drained a 3-
pointer to make it a three-point
game, but Bradford's Keaaris
Ardley fed Murphy Allen
underneath the basket for a
score in the final 10 seconds of
the quarter to put the
Tornadoes up 33-28.
Dukes was fouled on a 3-
pointer to open the fourth
quarter. He made all three free
throws, but Bradford would go
on to score 10 of the next 12
points. Brian Walton knocked
down a pull-up jumper, while
McBride scored two
consecutive baskets. Marco
Grimsley and Lyndell
Hampton each added a basket
as Bradford built a 43-33 lead.
Consecutive 3-pointers by
Union's Maeweather and
Alexander made things
interesting as the Tigers pulled
to within two points with a
minute reft in the game, but
McBride rebounded his own
missed layup to put the
Tornadoes up 47-43.
Union did not help itself at
the foul line as the Tigers went
to the line twice after being
fouled on 3-point attempts.
The Tigers made just 2 of
those ensuing 6 attempts.
McBride led all scorers with

Bradford's Deantre Burch and defensive pressure.


16 points. Six of those 'points
occurred in the first quarter as
Bradford scored the first 12
points of the game. Union did
not score until Keldric Bradley
made a free throw with 1:46
left in the first quarter.
Deon Aldridge scored four
points in the second quarter to
help the Tornadoes take a 25-
13 lead into the half. He scored
three straight baskets early in
the third quarter as Bradford
extended its lead to 16 points.
Aldridge finished the game
with 12 points, while Walton
added 11.
Alexander led Union with 13
points, while Maeweather and
Dukes had 12 and 10 points,
respectively.

comes up I game short
of final-four trip
The boys' basketball-team
won its third straight district
championship and advanced to


the Region I championship
before losing 65-49 to
defending state champ
Rickards.
Bradford's run started in the
District 4-3A tournament. The
Tornadoes opened play with a
73-39 win over Keystone
Heights in which Darrin Blye
scored the team's first 11
points and finished with 24 to
lead all scorers. Bradford,
which outscored the Indians
24-9 in the first quarter, got 12
points from Ya'keem Griner
and nine points from Chris
Walton.
In the district semifinals, the
Tornadoes put together an 8-2
run late in the third quarter that
sent them into the fourth
quarter up 42-36 and to an
eventual 60-51 win over
Crescent City.
Griner had 23 points arid
grabbed 10 rebounds, while
Justin McBride had 12 points
and 10 rebounds. Blye scored
13 points, while Tramaine

Bradford captured the
District 4 title with a 79-71

Nassau used an 11-0 run to
take a two-point lead in the
third quarter, but McBride's
eight points in the quarter


helped the Tornadoes tie the
score going into the fourth.
Walton made two 3-pointers
in the fourth quarter, while
Blye and Deon Aldridge had
nine and six points,
respectively.
Blye finished the game with
19 points, while McBride had
16 points, 12 rebounds and 10
blocked shots. Griner had 14
points and eight rebounds,
while Aldridge had 13 points
and eight rebounds.
Walton added 10 points.
Treyonte Covington played
a huge role in Bradford's rally
to beat Episcopal 59-48 in the
regional quarterfinals. The
Tornadoes lost the one-point
lead they took into the fourth
quarter and started off the
quarter by missing their first
four field-goal attempts.
Covington, though, scored
twice off of turnovers as
Episcopal turned the ball over
on five straight possessions.
Covington finished the game
with nine points, while Griner,
who had 12 rebounds, led the
team with 19 points. Blye and
Walton had 12 points each,
while McBride had seven
rebounds. Harris added six
assists.

54.
Griner and Covington scored
16 and 13 points, respectively,
in a game that saw Bradford
lead by seven with 1:30 to play
in regulation. McBride and
Walton scored nine points
each.
Bradford played its first two
regional games at home and
was the host again for the
Region I championship, but
the Tornadoes led only once in
the loss to Rickards.
Walton drained a 3-pointer
to start the second quarter and
put Bradford up 9-6. Rickards
answered by scoring the next
nine points-all on 3-pointers
by Cameron Coffee.
Rickards, which would go
on to win the state title, led by
seven at the half and increased


its lead to 16 going into the
fourth quarter.
Griner and Blye had 15 and
II points, respectively, for
Bradford, which finished the
season with a 24-8 record.
Walton added eight points.

Football team is district
runner-up, earns first
playoff berth since '04
Bradford was the District 4-
4A runner-up in football to
advance to the postseason for
the first time in seven years,
going 7-3 in the regular season
before losing 12-7 to Raines in
the regional semifinals.
The Tornadoes were not in a
very good position after falling
to 1-2 in the district with losses
to South Sumter and Keystone
Heights by a combined two
points. Bradford, though, won
its last two district games by a,
combined score of 89-0 and
was involved in a shootout to
break a three-way tie for
second place in the district.
To .get to that point,
Bradford had to defeat
Interlachen and Mount Dora.
The defense held each
opponent to less than 100
yards as the Tornadoes
defeated Interlachen 49-0 and
Mount Dora 40-0.
Austin Chipoletti passed for
214 yards and four
touchdowns in the win over
Interlachen. He connected with
Deantre Burch-who finished
with three receptions for 106
yards-for touchdowns of 43

focused on their studies.
Williams' players took part in
after-school tut r~i gjhd, as
with all sports, had to maintain
a minimum GPA.
"Most of them made A-B
honor roll," Williams said
about the players she coached.
"It wasn't about the sports. It
was about them. It was about
their long-term goals."
Now, Williams is on the
verge of many people's long-
term goal--retirement. Her
husband is in his fifth year of
retirement after putting in 40-
plus years with Winn Dixie.
Williams is looking forward to
joining him, relaxing that first
year and enjoying his
company, and then maybe do
some traveling. She said she'd
like to visit Alaska and
Niagara Falls.
Also, Williams would like to
continue to give back to others,
such as visiting nursing homes
and supporting the elderly in
some way. It's a value she
tried to instill in the players
she coached and the students
she taught and one that was
instilled in her and her
siblings.
Williams credits her mother,
who is 90 and still living in
Mississippi, for that. Williams
remembers her mother
,stressing the importance of
treating others the way you'd
want others to treat you and to
just care about people in

"It's about love," Williams
said. "It's about giving back.
It's about appreciating people
for who they are 'and not for
what they have."
And that is what you'll find
beneath Williams' self-
desribed "hard-nosed"
exterior.


Chipoletti also had a 13-yard
touchdown run and finished
with 102 yards on 15 carries.
In the shootout to settle
second place and who would
advance to the playoffs,
Bradford's defense did it
again, scoring the only
touchdown in a 7-0 win over
Mount Dora in a quarter of
play.
Dakota Rice returned a
fumble more than 80 yards for
a score on the first possession
of the game. Mount Dora then
punted on its second
possession, with Bradford's
offense chewing up the final
4:47 on a 59-yard drive.
Chipoletti had runs of 14
and 19 yards to keep the drive
alive.
Defense was the name of the
game in Bradford's 12-7 loss
to Raines in the first round of
the playoffs. The Tornadoes
were held to 11 rushing yards,
with Chipoletti being tackled
behind the line of scrimmage
12 times.
Raines rushed for only 84
yards.
The Vikings scored on a 7-
yard run with 2:23 to play in
the first quarter. Bradford's
Thomas returned the ensuing
kickoff 39 yards and
eventually scored on a 38-yard
reception.
Raines answered with a 72-
yard scoring drive that featured
a 49-yard pass on a third-down
play. The Vikings capped the
drive with a 3-yard touchdown

second quarter.
That would be the final
score of the game.
Bradford had a scoring
opportunity in the third
quarter. A 25-yard reception
by Clayton, coupled with a
personal foul penalty, gave
Bradford a first down at the
Raines 20. A holding call on
Raines moved the Tornadoes
to the 15, but a holding penalty
on Bradford and a mishandled
snap helped kill the drive.

LETTER
Continued from Page 4B


discussed our responsibilities
and she told me she was fair
and impartial and would not
print articles concerning the
city until we had an
opportunity to review so that
we would not be blind-sided
by any articles that were
published. It is noted that all of
the meetings are recorded and
minutes are provided which
are accessible to the public
request. I was somewhat
amazed at the article, "City,
Fire Chief Have Words Over
Budget Issues." Not only was
the article biased, but it was
inflammatory and self-serving
for whatever reason.
I wish to submit the
following information:
I) The issue was never
whether or not Chief Banks
needed new boots. The whole
issue was that I requested
direction from the city
commission regarding the
Lake Butler Volunteer Fire
Department's adherence to the
city purchasing policy and
procedures that went -into
effect this year. I held several
purchase requests and
requested on three separate
occasions that Mr. Banks come
to my office to discuss my
concern with him. His
response was, "Are you asking
me as a city employee or as the
fire chief?" This was an
inappropriate response by Mr.
Banks to me as the city
manager. Mr. Banks did not
feel that 1, as the city manager,
had any authority to hold him
accountable for his
expenditures, as he always
stayed within his budget (this
is true). However, I am
responsible to the
commissioners for all city
revenue and expenditures.
2) The statement that I had
not personally made contact
\\iith Mr. Banks concerning the
issue is true. Again, it is noted
thin on three separate
occasions. I requested Mr.
Banks in nmy office. I havec
handled other cit' issues with
him on several occasions
bet"wccn mny requests. The
issue remained that lie was not
going to discuss with me an\
purchase requests because he
did not consider it an\ of n\
(the city's) business. I deferred
to the cit\ commission for
direction and clarification of
Im and Mr. Banks'
responsibilities.
3) There are issues that I and
the cil\ commission must lbe
a\\are of before purchases are
made. There are purchase
requests held that involved
purchases of uniforms, badges,

We treasure every
moment you spent in this
life with us. We hoped to
have you longer, but it's
not meant to be.
You left this world so
suddenly, we feel so lost
and lonely, and we cry
from missing you.
We know you're in a
better place. We know
you're happy there. We
know one day we 'lljoin
you, but the wait is hard
to bear
Our hearts feel like
they're breaking as we try
to carry on. We cherish
the memories you left in


our hearts.
-Stan We 'll count the years until
the time we join you there

pins, etc., for a new captain's
position that the commission
was unaware of. Mr. Banks
purchased his own fire chief
jacket and I was unaware that
he made this purchase. I do not
know why he made tlis
purchase from his personal
funds. I have never denied huir
any purchase.
4) In regards to the cit
manager's vehicle, my
intentions were not to purchase
a new vehicle during riy
employment with the city. On
three separate occasions, staff
members had the vehicle ih
question break down on them.
The car is 10 years old arid
currently needs a major repair,
"a transmission replacement.
The new vehicle was budgeted
this fiscal year and, thanks to
our purchasing agent, she was
able to 'get a 2012, leather
interior, more gas-efficient
car--with a savings in the
budget of approximately
$4,000.
5) The city of Lake Butler
and the citizens of Union
County were part of 57 FDOC
employees that received a
portion of the $69,500
assistance awarded due to
tragic events occurring in their
lives. The city manager is a
direct representative of the
citizens. My goal is to be a
steward to the citizens and I
am in a unique position of
service (non-paid) on the State
Executive Board of the
Department of Corrections
Foundation as its treasurer.
In conclusion, these are
tough times. Cities are being
forced to tighten their belts
while continuing to meet the
needs of the citizens. The
budget is a financial plan, that
is the framework to operate
within. A budget was never
intended to be absolute: there
are too many factors affecting
it. One must monitor activities
daily to ensure that the cit
remains within n its means.
It is noted that there \\as nd
review\\ or clarification of the
issues published by the Union
Counts Times. There \as
broad discussion on all areas
which h \\as recorded. The
section on the fire chief \\as
intentionally ske\\ed to his
position. There \\ as no allemipt
\\hatsoe\er to be fair or
impartial to the oilt\ or this
\ writer. M\ char'icter and
moti\es \ere qlestionied. Ihe
\\ hole e ent appeared
orchestrated. Staff \\as present
as a sho\\ of force anld the\
ha\e expressed their disdain
for the position the\ \\crc put
in. I hope that in the future.
Ms. (lark \\ would seek
impartialit\ and Ifairnes in her

7 BHS wrestlers go 1-1 in 1st home match


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Cody Hankerson defeated
both .opponents he faced as the
Bradford wrestling team
defeated Interlachen 35-15 and
lost 32-30 to Raines in its first
home match of the season on
Dec. 15.
Tre Edmond and Devin
Paulk also went 2-0 against the
two schools, but both of
Edmond's wins were the result
of forfeits, while one of
Paulk's wins was by forfeit.
Interlachen forfeited the
138-pound class, which gave a
victory to Bradford's Austin
Wilson to start that match.
Jarraid Forsyth lost a close 9-7
affair in the 145 class,
followed by Hankerson's 19-3
win in the 160 class. Another
forfeit by Interlachen in the
170 class gave a victory to
Edmond.
Paulk recorded a pin in 36
seconds in the 195 class to
give the Tornadoes a 23-9 over
the Rams. Interlachen forfeited
the 220 class, which gave a
victory to Brent Kebby.
The Tornadoes got off to a
fast start against Raines, with
the Vikings forfeiting the 170,
182 and 195 classes, which
gave wins to Edmond, Dakota
Rice and Paulk. Hankerson
opened the match by pinning
his opponent in 1:10.
Hankerson's win and the three
forfeitures put Bradford up 24-
0.


Austin Wilson (left) sizes up his opponent in the early stages of a match.


Raines won three straight
matches, which, with Bradford
forfeiting a class, put the
Vikings up 29-24. Wilson then
lost 14-9, which gave Raines
an eight-point lead.
In the last match, Forsyth
pinned his opponent in 1:08 to
close the final margin to two
points.
The Tornades will face
Palatka and Eastside in a
match at Eastside in
Gainesville on Wednesday,
Jan. 4, before taking part in the
Clay Rotary Tournament on
Saturday, Jan. 7, at Clay High
School in Green Cove Springs.
Bradford's next home match
is Tuesday,Jan. 10, at 6 p.m.
