Looking back on 2011 through the pages of the Times


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

As a new year begins, some
events of 2011 are remembered.
Tree planting
This past spring, several
groups came together to plant
trees and help the community of
Lake Butler.
Between the Union County
Public Library, the Division of
Forestry (Jay Tucker and Nicole
Howard), Walmart, the City of
Lake Butler, Lake Butler Middle
School (Marcie Tucker's sixth
grade classes), and North Florida
Equipment Rental, trees were
planted around Lake Butler in an
effort to beautify the area.
"Ili addition to planting trees at
the library and at the city park,
we have also sent each student
home with a tree sapling of their
own. We hope they will learn the
value of nature and taking care of
our resources," said Jay Tucker,
Division of Forestry.
Walmart grant pays
for library books
-In July, using funds from the
Walmart Foundation Grant, the
Union County Public Library was
able to purchase 10 new books
for its children's and young adult
collection.
The funds were made possible
through the accumulated
volunteer hours of Walmart
Associate John Gilroy. Gilroy
has volunteered dozens of
hours at the library working on
a variety of maintenance jobs
including brickwork, fence
repair, cleaning and landscaping.
Library Director Mary Brown
said, "We are very appreciative
of John Gilroy and the Walmart
Foundation for all they do to help
the library and our community."
Rimes becomes the
LBES principal
The previous Lake Butler
Elementary School principal,
Lynn Bishop, retired on June 30.
After much consideration, the
Union County School Board
made a decision to fill the
position with LBES Assistant
Principal Stacey Rimes.
Upon taking the role, Rimes
said,"LBES already operates like
a well-oiled machine. I intend to
continue to seek that excellence'
by keeping the current system of


organization in place."
Perez named LBES
assistant principal
Union County School Board
announced the new assistant
principal as Christie Perez.
"After teaching in Lake Butler
Elementary School for the past
13 years, I am very passionate
about the students and their
growth academically as well as
socially and emotionally," said
Perez.
Perez filled Rimes' position
after Rimes took on the role of
the LBES principal.
An 'A' District
The Union County School
Board once again celebrated
becoming an all "A" district.
In a letter written days before
the 2011 graduation, Faulk said,
"Teachers, coaches, sponsors,
and staff-thanks for the long
hours that you spend teaching,
coaching, and leading our youth
to be successful in life.As I have
said before we are fortunate to
live and raise our families in
Union County."

Keep your family safe during New Year's Eve celebrations


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

New Year's Eve celebrations
can be exciting, however, if
precautions are not taken, there
can be disastrous outcomes. Here
are a few tips to ring in the new
year safely.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol. Gov. Rick Scott
recently proclaimed December
as National Drunk and Drugged
Driving Prevention Month.
As part of Florida's focus
on safe highway travel during
the holiday season, FHP will
join thousands of other law
enforcement and highway safety
agencies across the nation in
"Drive Sober or Get Pulled


Over." a nationwide campaign
targeting impaired driving, to be
carried out through Jan. 2, of the
new year.
Statistics have proven through
the years that the amount of
impaired driving increases during
the holiday season. Choose a
designated driver. According to
FHP, the "designated driver"* is
not the person who has had the
least amount to drink; it is the
person who has had nothing to
drink. Responsible planning
means identifying the person
who will do the driving before
your holiday celebrating begins.
The designated driver is the one
who is responsible to get you
home safely. If traveling on New
Year's Eve,do not drive impaired


or "buzzed" and watch for signs
of impaired driving from other
vehicles. Also, be aware of the
dangers of testing while.driving.
Fireworks are another common
hazard of the holiday season.
According to the National
Council on Fireworks Safety,
their mission is to educate the
public on the safe and responsible
use of consumer fireworks in an
effort to eliminate injuries. The
council provides these tips for
the use of fireworks:
Use fireworks outdoors only.
Obey local laws. If the
fireworks are not legal, do not
use them
*Alwvays have \water handy. (A
hose or bucket.).

What began as just a vacant
field, known as Sprinkle Field,
located across from the Kangaroo
store in Lake Butler became more
like a flea market right before
Christmas.
People lined the sidewalk
along Sprinkle Field facing S.R.
121 selling various items such
as: toys, kitchen items, blankets,
furniture, baby items, pictures,
household items, outdoor items,


Operation Ct

Child a succ

Volunteers have been
working at Lake Butler area
collection sites where hundreds
of shoeboxes packed with
school supplies, toys and
necessity items were collected.
Lake Butler residents were able
to collect 281 shoebox gifts.

National Collection Week
wrapped up for the world's
largest Christmas project of
its kind, Operation Christmas
Child, where participants filled
empty shoeboxes with items
for kids suffering from natural
disasterer, war, terrorism, famine
and poverty. These shoeboxes
were delivered to 8.5 million
kids worldwide.
A Build-A-Box Program was
launched which allows Lake
Butler residents who may have
forgotten to pack a shoebox
to go online and customize a
shoebox gift to send to a needy
clild around the world.

?For families who haven't yet
picked their gift of hope, it's not
to late. Use Build a Box. It's a
sinmlle, quick, yet meaningful
vjay to impact a child in
rined. Volunteers can visit the
project's website at www.
ssmnaritanspurse.org/occ, select
achild's age and gender, shop
through an online selection of
gifts, "pack" them in an empty
slioebox, and finish it off with
~note of encouragement. Then
through tracking technology,
donors can follow the box to
the destination country where it
will be hand-delivered.
Operation Christmas Child,
a project of international


produce and plants all throughout
the holiday week. Although
vendors have been present on the
field selling items before, it was
far more than usual due to the
holiday.
Sisters Jennifer Williams,
Shirley Bridgman and Linda
Morton walked along the
sidewalk checking out the sales.
There was a variety of items to
be purchased, old and new.
With Christmas over, the field
is back to its original state, bare.

Christian relief and evangelism
through Samaritan's Purse, uses
simple gift-filled shoeboxes to
let hurting children know they
are loved and not forgotten.
For many of these children, the
simple shoebox will be the first
gift they have ever received.

Since 1993, Operation
Christmas Child has hand-
delivered more than 86 million
gift-filled shoeboxes to needy
children in more than 130
countries.,

BY CRYSTAL WOODALL
Special to the Times

Words cannot begin to express
the outpouring of love that this
community has shown to us

Scott loved Union County

have to admit there is not another
place quite like Lake Butler.
Union County School District
is an A+ district in more than just
grades. Scott was so proud to
be a part of it. He was a "Tiger"
bleeding "purple and gold"
through and through.
We would like to express our
sincere gratitude for the many

Start 2012 off Right
Every year many people make resolutions for the New Year.
Hopefully as all of us enter 201'2 we will be more resolved to
seek the Lord. A couple of verses from Isaiah stand out as he
calls the people to, "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call
upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and
the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and
He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will
abundantly pardon"(Isaiah 55:6-7). Hopefully everyone makes
plans every day and as we enter a New Year to seek God and
depart from evil. One thing that will help us seek God is a
commitment to study His book, the Bible. A good resolution for
the year might be to read through the Bible or start up a Bible
study. If you would like to have a Bible study in your home or
some other location to discuss Bible topics, we would be glad to
study with you.

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



Vacancies up, traffic count down on U.S. 301


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor
This year brought more
turmoil to businesses along
U.S. 301 with around a dozen
enterprises closing up shop.
.Establishments no longer on or
near Bradford County's main
thoroughfare include the North
Ceritral Florida YMCA
Wellness center, Deluxe Inn,
Sunstate Lawn and Garden
Equipment, Econolodge,
Lawtey Supermarket, Pit Stop
Caf6, Las Vegas 777 Gaming
Center, Cowboy's Steakhouse.
Whataburger and Jay's
Minimart.
Those businesses joined the
already vacant structures that
formally housed
Fat Jacks BBQ,
Water's Grocery,
Ken's Paint and Body
Shop,
Alexander's Place,
Faulkner Plaza,
Bradford Rentals,
Starke Lanes/ Bowling
Alley,
Gracefully Growing


Learning Center,
the old KFC building
which also housed a
Chinese restaurant,

Drummond Financial
Services,
Wainwright's produce
stand,
Western Auto,
CMI Joist
Riverside Uniforms
ABC Liquors and
Crosley Trailers.
However, all the news was
not bad on the four-lane.
Bradford County
commissioners built a senior
center in front of the health
department, which they plan to
dedicate in January. On the
other end of town, Deerfoot
Village is making a comeback,
landing as new tenants Dick's
Wings, Hairy Business and
Ciggies 4 Less.
Traffic counts continue to
decline along the route after
peaking in 2005 and 2006.


The number of vehicles
crossing the Alligator Creek
bridge was 13 percent less in
2010 (the latest data available)
than in 2006. Last year, cars
and trucks passing the fair
grounds fell to 64 percent of
2006 levels. The Lawtey
traffic count also eroded over
the six-year span, falling from
an average of 21,500 vehicles
a day in 2005 to 15,700 a day
in 2010, a 27 percent drop.


Lawtey Supermarket is one of several businesses along U.S. 301 to close.


Businesses that used to be on U.S.301 are Cowboy's (top), Jay's Minimart (center)
and Whataburger (bottom).

Things that make you go, 'Hmmm...


BY RAMONA PETRY
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor
You've seen the
advertisement in the paper and
on signs throughout our
community. "Buy local, save
our jobs."
What does it mean? How
does it affect me or my
'community? Why buy it here
when I think I can get it in
Jacksonville or Gainesville for
less?
With some items, it may
seem that way, but it is not
necessarily true, and the
ramifications to our
community far outweigh the
belief that you are saving
money.
There have been a lot of
businesses through the years
that have come to Starke and
left due to a lack of support
from the community. The loss
of these small businesses has
really had a tremendous
negative effect on our
community and our wallets.
As a small child in Starke, I
remember a small Sears store.
I remember this because for
Christmas I would get long,
full-body pajamas that I could
slide on our floor in, and they
kept me warm in the winter. I
remember getting summer
dresses and shorts, too.


A small shoe store where we
could buy quality shoes at a
reasonable price used to be
located downtown across from
the movie theater on Call
Street. I remember buying my
first pair of boots that I ever
purchased myself-with lawn-
mowing money-from that
store, and when I wore the
soles off of those boots, Mom
took me farther up Call Street
to the shoe repair shop. There;
they' put new soles on my
boots-it was like a new pair
all over again.
Now those stores are long
gone, but we have other small
businesses in our, community
that need our support. There is
information almost weekly in
the newspaper about how most
of our local businesses support
our community-helping our
schools' athletic, science and
agriculture departments, the
volunteer fire departments, and
food and toy drives for those in
our community, just to name a
few.
Can we really afford to
punish our community by not
supporting our local
businesses? What about the
people they employ? Do we
really need to increase our
jobless rate? Most of our small
businesses are owned by
people who live right here-

Flag etiquette
education
Dear Editor:
It's a start of a new year,
2012. I wanted to comment on
improper flag etiquette at
Santa Fe College. Scouts,
JROTC, veterans and active
military know proper flag
etiquette and it shows a love
for their country. To out
soldiers overseas, it is a sign of
freedom and home.
But I realize that not
everyone has learned proper
flag etiquette. I feel it is the
military- organizations'
responsibility to educate the
public.
As an auxiliary member of
three military organizations -
American-Legion 56, Military

The real story...
D9hr Editor! ',
,We hate.allfie brd about the
"idling" 'of 'the Hawthorne
Plywood Plant. It's a sad story.
I 'feel like everyone needs to
khow the' real story. I feel like
people need to'know an inside
vidw of what's really going on.
I work at the plywood plant.
I found out about the
shutdown, not from GP, but


from Facebook. When I got
back to work, we all had
questions, but they had no
answers. The truth has since
leaked out from management.
The log truck drivers, who
are contracted out by GP,
found out three months before
the shutdown. We all heard
about it then and asked the
plant manager about it. She
told us it was a rumor and that
we were selling plywood, so
there was nothing to worry
about. I guess it was not a
rumor after all.
After we confronted the
plant manager about, the
rumor, our plant went into
overdrive, putting out as much
plywood as we could make.
We did overtime and basically
sped ip the entire process for
them. Knowing the shutdown
was coming, why did they
boost production and lie to
every employee? From an
inside view, it seems as if they
are trying to shut us down
ASAP. There are more
"rumors" about GP's trying to


get rid of the union, re-e
2013, hire people at a hu
cut, and take away benef
other rights we now h
GP employees. Does
sound like corruption?

Qualifying to


run for office is


easier than ever


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor
Running for a district office
this year in Bradford County is
easier because of an exception
in Florida's election statutes.
Supervisor of Elections Terry
Vaughan said that ordinarily to
get on the ballot, candidates
running for county
commission or school board
would have to collect 32
signatures within the district
they intended to compete in.
However, because this year is
a redistricting year, candidates
running for county
commission districts one, three
or five, or school board
districts three or four can get
their petitions signed by any
valid voter in the county.
Qualifying dates for county
and district offices are from
noon, June 4, to noon, June 8.
However, candidates who
qualify through petitions must
turn in their signatures no later
than noon, May 7. Candidates
paying the qualifying fee have
until noon, June 8, to qualify.
Another new law regulating
candidates this year is the
party change rule. It bars
candidates from changing
parties within 365 days of
qualifying. If a candidate
running this year changed


political affiliation since June
18, 2011, that candidate must
run in 2012 with no party
affiliation.
Here are the Bradford
County offices up for election
in 2012.

found to be dear to my
heart. His name is Paul
Stewart. Many of you know
Paul. Ifyou don't, then I
am here to tell you what a
wonderful person he really
is. Personally think he is
one of the greatest men I
have ever known. Always
giving of himself, never
once asking for anything
in return. He is in a place
where he doesn't deserve
to be. Iam asking the
community to please pray
for Paul. Every prayer
counts. Also, ifyou would
like to drop him a line or
two, you can: Paul
Stewart, 945A N. Temple

You always find out that
you have no friends when
you need them the most.
Our prayers are with
you, Paul, love

New Year's Day: Now is
the accepted time to
make your regular annual
good resolutions. Next
week you can begin
paving hell with them as
usual. -Mark Twain

McBride's big game not enough in 4-point loss
I~~~~~~~~ '^tL'>(ts.l--^ 6 ^^C^u^I'


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Justin McBride scored 29
points and grabbed 25
rebounds for the Bradford
boy's basketball team, but a
10-1 run late in the fourth
quarter propelled Annapolis
(Md.) St. Mary's Parrish to a
56-52 win on Dec. 21 in the
second round of the Lake Area
McDonald's Christmas
Tournament, hosted by the
Kiwanis Club of Starke at
Bradford High School.
Two free throws by Deantre
Burch gave the Tornadoes a
43-40 lead, but St. Mary's
knocked down two 3-pointers
to take the lead for good. Jake
Brundin sank the first long-
distance shot for St. Mary's.


Brundin then had a steal that
led to a trey by'Chakan Smith.
Bradford's Brandon Hildreth
made a free throw at the 4:04
mark of the fourth quarter, but
St. Mary's got consecutive
baskets from Smith and
Brundin to go up 50-44.
McBride, who also finished
with five blocked shots, scored
eight points in the final minute
and a half, but the Tornadoes
could not overtake St. Mary's.
Two players accounted for
all but 10 of the Tornadoes'
points as Brian Walton
finished with 13 points.
It was those two players who
did all of the scoring in the
first quarter, with McBride
scoring the team's first two
basket off of rebound


putbacks. St. Mary's opened
the game with a 3-pointer from
Brundin, but McBride's
baskets and a jumper by
Walton put the Tornadoes up
6-5.
It was a tie score after the
first quarter and pretty much
an even game in the second,
but St. Mary's helped itself at,
the foul line to take a one-point
lead into the half. St. Mary's
made 9 of 10 free throws in the
quarter, while Bradford was I
of 6.
Two free throws by Willy
Hope put St. Mary's up by
two, but two consecutive
baskets and a free throw by
Walton put Bradford up 24-21.
St. Mary's Tevin Johnson
answered with a basket and

Deantre Burch

two St. Mary's
defenders in
the lane. St.
Mary's defeated
the Tornadoes
by four points,
sending
Bradford to the
third-place
game.


The all-tournament team consisted of (I-r) Justin McBride (Bradford), Tevin
Johnson (St. Mary's), Jake Brundin (St. Mary's), Isaiah Jackson (Gainesville) and
MVP Ed Porter (Gainesville). Not pictured: Rashad Huffman (Broach).

having lost seven matches in
their final two years and
capturing a district

Having gone through the

time, though, it was the
Raiders who came out on top,
defeating Keystone 3-2 (18-25,

Harvin had 46 assists and 21
digs, while Velazquez had 21

to a 3-2 (25-16, 25-22, 12-25,
21-25, 15-7) win.

set. Maxwell had two straight
kills to put the Indians up 23-

they outscored Baldwin 17-4

'grabbed two defensive boards
at the start of the second half

a steal and was fouled on a
subsequent shot attempt. Green
made both free throws with 25


to build a 15-point lead
entering the fourth quarter.

Cook wins medal at
state weightlifting finals
Samantha Cook improved
upon her seventh-place finish
.in 2010 in a big way, placing
third in the girls' weightlifting
.state finals and improving her
overall total by 60 pounds.
Cook, competing in the
unlimited class, actually tied
for second at the state finals
with Keystone Heights lifter
Morgan Boettcher, but
Boettcher was awarded second
with the weigh-in tiebreaker.
Cook, who set school
records in the bench press,
clean and jerk, and overall
total in her class, had a 405
overall total at state. Her bench
press was 210, while her clean
and jerk was 195.
At the District 4 state
qualifying meet, Cook placed
first ahead of Boettcher with a
395 total (205 bench press, 190
clean and jerk).

Volleyball team wins
first-ever district title
Union's volleyball team
swept every District 7-IA
opponent during the regular
season with the exception of
Chiefland, which defeated the
Tigers in both regular-season
meetings.
The Tigers exacted a big
measure of revenge, defeating
top seed Chiefland 3-1 (25-21,
27-25, 22-25, 26-24) to win
the program's first'ever district
championship.
Union opened play in the
tournament with a 3-0 (25-18,
25-16, 25-13) win over
Newberry in the semifinals.
Emily Akridge had 22 service
points, eight aces anti eight
digs, while Macee
Worthington had 15 assists, 12
'digs, 10 service.points and six
aces. Harlee Rimes added
eight digs, while Ashlyn
Harden had eight kills, eight
service points and two blocks.
In the championship match,
Chiefland was close to forcing
a fifth set, but the Tigers
scored six straight points with
Lindsey Hanson serving to win
that set 26-24 and claim the
championship.
Hanson finished with 10
points and 13- digs, while
Jordane Spitze had 21 digs, 10
kills, three blocks, 12 service
points and four aces. Akridge
had 17 kills, 14 digs and two
blocks, while Worthington had
*23 digs, 18 assists, 10 service
points and four aces.
Harden had 14 kills and 20
digs, while Rimes and Tristyn
Southerland had 12 and 10
digs, respectively.
The Tigers went on to record
their first-ever regional win,
defeating Pierson Taylor 3-2
(21-25, 25-20, 23-25, 25-23,
15-11) in a semifinal match.
Union scored eight straight
points in the second set to
build a 21-10 lead. A block by
Harden put the Tigers up 24-
18 before they won the set on a
Taylor service error.
The Tigers found themselves
down 22-20 in the fourth set,
which they needed to win to
prolong the match. They
scored four straight points with
Worthington serving, getting
an ace and a kill by Akridge.
Another service error by
Taylor gave the Tigers the set
win.
Spitze had the match-
winning kill in the fifth set.
Harden and Spitze led the
Tigers in kills with 10 and
nine, respectively, while
Harden also had 21 digs.
Akridge had 19 service points,
eight aces, eight kills and four
blocks, while Worthington


added 17 assists, 18 service
points and five aces.
The Tigers' quest for a first-
ever trip to the state
tournament was denied by
Crescent City, which won a
regional final match by the
score of 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-
17).
Union was unable to
maintain late leads in the first
two sets. The Tigers were up
22-18 in the first set, but the
Raiders scored seven straight
points to win.


In the second set, three
service points by Spitze put the
Tigers up 19-12. Crescent
scored nine points to go up by
two. Union failed to score a
point on two service
possessions after that. Crescnct
City eventually.won the set on
a service ace.
The third set was dominated
by the Raiders, who went up
24-9 before Union scored
seven straight points with
Harden serving.
Harden finished with 1 1
service points, three aces, 12
digs and seven kills, while
Worthington had 11 assists, 14
digs, seven points and four
aces. Spitze had 10 digs.
The loss wrapped the Tigers'
season up with an 18-10
record.
