Ground to be broken for fi


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor


The date to break ground
on the new'fire station in Lake
Butler has been set for Monday,
March 12, at 10 a.m.
At the Lake Butler City
Council meeting held on Feb.
13, City Commissioner.. Scott.
Cason recommended that a
groundbreaking date be set.
OnFeb.7,aspecial meetingwas
held for the city commissioners
to discuss and decide upon
possible cost-saving alternatives
to the final construction plans.
These revisions needed to be
decided upon in order to begin
construction. These proposed
cost-saving alternatives were
designed to reserve funds to
develop a second venture, a
splash park which is projected to
cost $50,000.
Quality Construction Inc, also
known as Union Lasteel Metal
Buildings, submitted a list of


alternatives prepared by North
Florida Professional Services,
Inc.
Phil Bishop of North Florida
Professional Services addressed
the commission in relation to
each possible alteration. Bishop
said, "Either decision is a good
decision."
... City...F FreCJhiCLAlJ.ke. Banks
spoke openly to the commission
prior to discussion, requesting
that fair decisions be made, with
the fire station as the first project
priority. Banks said, "Let's not
hold back on the spoon any more
than needed."
The first revision discussed
was the cost difference between
a 13 SEER A/C unit and a 16
SEER A/C unit. The total savings
would be $4,400. However, the
more costly unit was said to be
more energy efficient, so it was
agreed upon to keep the original
16 SEER unit in the plans.
The size and type of overhead
doors to be used for each of


the four truck bays were also
discussed. The most -cost-
efficient doors would be 14
feet wide coiled roll up doors
to replace the 16-foot sectional
doors specified, The commission
decided on using the coiled doors
but kept them at 16 feet after
Banks informed the commission
of damage received to fire trucks
due to mere inches. The.actual.
savings was not determined due
to using the alternate doors but
with the two-foot difference.
Bishop also proposed to install
an automatic transfer switch
(ATS) only and not to provide
the fixed mounted emergency
generator specified in plans.
This would save $25,000. Banks
disagreed with this decision based
on previous disasters where a
generator was needed. However,
he said that he was aware of
the proposed splash park's,
importance to the commission,
and said he could live without the
generator if needed.


rehouse

In other discussion,- it was
agreed upon by the commission
that the projected cost of the
stairs to the mezzanine level
(second floor) seemed a bit
high. The commissionsuggested
that alternate stair quotes be
obtained through the purchasing
department. This issue will be
.decided on, at a laterdate.......
With the cuts made to the fire
station plans, an estimate of close
to $50,000 was saved to be used
for.the splash park once the fire
station is complete.
Cason made a motion to
approve the changes and for the
savings. to be put toward the
splash park, Councilman Leroy
Stalvey seconded, with the
decision carrying unanimously.
Vice-Mayor Lonnie Norman
was not present due to a prior
commitment and said he was
not given a sufficient amount of
notice to attend,
The project is expected to last
150 days.

familial tie
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor


The City of Lake Butler paid
Mayor Fred Sirmones' sister
$1,377.74 to cater an employee
appreciation dinner last De-
cember.
City manager Dave Mecusk-
er said when the town's long-
time caterer bowed out of the
annual event for health reasons,
he was left scrambling to find
a replacement. The manager
said when a worker at city hall
recommended Shirley Lacy's
Shirley Catering, he jumped at
the chance to fill the last-min-
ute void.
The manager said he found
out Shriley Lacy is Fred Sim-
ones' sister during the, dinner,
but it wasn't until City Attorney
John Maines recommended that
the mayor not sign the check
for the caterer that Mecusker
realized the transaction might
have created a conflict.
Maines said he recommend-
ed that an authorized check
signer, other than Sirmones,
endorse Lacy's check to avoid
the appearance of a conflict of
interest.
The mayor said he was un-
aware that his sister had been
hired to cater the dinner until
after the deal had already been
finalized. He added that he
never considered the arrange-
ment a conflict or ethical viola-
tion.
On Jan. 27, Kia Paige, Me-
cusker's assistant, reimbursed
the town $1,377.74 for the
cost of the dinner. She drigi-
nally recommended Lacy to her
boss. However, after Mecusker

meeting.


Holten's resignation came in
the form of a letter dated Jan. 3.

reasons, it was with deepest
regrets that he had to resign his

Connell seeks UC clerk


(Thefollowing is a statement of
intention to run for public office,
submitted by the candidate.)
I, Kellie Hendricks Connell,
CPA, am excited to announce
my candidacy for Union County
clerk of courts.
My ancestral roots can be
traced in Union County since
its beginnings, and I am proud
to have called this great county
home my entire life. A graduate
of Union County High School,
I am a product of an education
system, which not only gave me'
a great foundation for higher
education, but also taught me
the value of hardwork, integrity
and perseverance.
I received a bachelor's
degree in accounting from the
University of Florida, and I also
hold a master of accountancy
degree from the University of
North Florida. In 2008,1 obtained
my license as a certified public
accountant. I have worked in
public accounting for 13 years
at Michael Metzler, CPA, PA,
in Gainesville. In addition, I
perform bookkeeping services
for private clients.
My husband, Jeremy, and I
have three boys: Tanner, Judd
and Tripp. I am a lifelong and
active member of the Lake
Butler Church of Christ. I
teach Sunday school and assist'
the church treasurer with'
bookkeeping functions.
I have been a part of Relay for
Life for the American Cancer
Society in Lake Butler since
it was started in 2008. I have
served twice as the event chair,
and additionally served as the
accounting chair for two years.


Professionally, a member of

at Tiger's Den for seven of those
years. Before that time,Alexander
worked as a teacher's assistant at
Lake Butler Elementary School.
Alexander said," I do my best
to make sure that my class is
blessed with every tool needed
for a successful class and the best
educational year possible. They
are our future, so we have to be
prepared and well organized with
the curriculum and lesson plans
each -day. I truly enjoy being a
role model teacher, coming from
a class of Reach II ekcellences. I
have learned and trained to be the
best teacher I can possibly be."
Alexander said she loves to
read books and enjoys preparing
kits for the next level pre-k and
kindergarten.


Kellie Connell


The duties of the event chair
include organizing a team to
plan and execute an overnight
community event. My years of
organizing and planning this
successful fundraising event
are a testimony to my excellent
management skills and ability
to delegate responsibilities.
The first year that I chaired the
event, I gave birth to one of my
Children during the week of relay.
.Because I cannot walk away
\frbm a job undone. I followed
through with last-minute details
via telephone from the hospital.
Wien Jeremy and I brought
the baby home, we settled in
and went to Relay for Life that
evening. I wanted to be sure the
event was successful.
My background is in
accounting, which makes me
well equipped to carry out one
of the primary functions of the
clerk: the keeping and reporting
of financial information and


serving as the custodian of
county funds. Through both
my education and career, I have
acquired an extensive knowledge
of tax law. My familiarity with
reading and interpreting codes
and statutes will give me the
ability to protect the integrity of
our court system.

As clerk of court, I will ensure
that county records are not only
accessible, but also hassle-free
to obtain. Union County is a
small community. Tasks such as
obtaining a copy of a marriage
license are expected to be quick
and simple. I will strive to
meet these expectations. I will
ensure that everyone in need of
assistance from the clerk's office
will be treated equally and with
courtesy.
Union County does not have
a county manager, and many
responsibilities that would
ordinarily be handled by a
manager fall to the clerk of
courts. I am capable of.handling.
all duties that this aspect of the
job may require. Being raised in
a farming family, I know how to
live frugally. I will use the same
approach with county funds;
I will always strive to keep
expenditures low and within the


budget.
My


education, work


experience and background in
this community make me an
excellent candidate for Union:
County's clerk of courts, and
I urge you to vote for Kellie
Hendricks Connell, CPA.
Given the opportunity, I will be
grateful to serve the citizens of
Union County.

UCHS SAC wanted to find a
way to have a positive impact
on the students, faculty and
staff beyond their current role.
After brainstorming ideas, the
committee unanimously agreed
to begin the student led tutoring
program.
"Our students have such a vast
depth of academic'talent," said
AC Chair Jamie Dekle. "This is
a great way to put these talents
to work for the betterment of
thI6.school. Working with these
students has been a pleasure. Each
have shown great responsibility
and maturity and are taking this
program and their role in it very
seriously."
It was also the goal of the
SAC committee to provide a
service that did not add to the
already rigorous .demands of
the classroom teachers. Once
the program gains interest, the
committee is hoping to add other
academic areas next year. After
several full- weeks of tutoring,


is a walking/running program that
gives students an' opportunity to
exercise rather than sit or stand in
front of their classrooms: Parents
are invited to participate, too.
This is primarily for grades 1-4
'but pre-k and kindergarten may
participate if a parent' ig with
them. LBES. has a trail marked
off at the back of the school.
Students may walk as little or as
much as they wish. School food
service staff will have a breakfast
cart in the area for those who
wish to eat' breakfast outside at
a picnic table rather than in the
cafeteria.
The walk is open from 7:30
a.m. to 7:50 a.m., Monday
through Thursday. Tiger Up will
not be held on Fridays or on days
with inclement weather. Though
LBES will have volunteers
monitoring the walk, they said
they would love to have more
involved. If you are interested
in volunteering for this or any
other event here at LBES, please
contact us at 496-3047.
LBES is offering two separate
-fundraisers for the upcoming
Relay for Life, an event designed
by the American Cancer Society
to raise money and awareness for
the fight against cancer.


each session has had several
students attend. The sessions
have ranged from Algebra I to
pre-calculus. According to one
student, with the help of peer
tutor Legan Momeau,he has been
able to raise his failing grade to a
C. Each of the students attending
sign in and out and each of the
peer tutors receive community
service for their time and effort.
"The tutoring program the
School Advisory Council created
is working very well," said UCHS
Principal Mike Ripplinger. "It
was well designed and much
attention was given in the
planning phases so that it would
be a success. The math teachers
have been verysupportive and the
peer tutors have done an excellent
job helping their fellow students.
This is another example of the
strong relationship between our
'faculty, students and community
as we work together to meet the
needs of our students. We look
forward to how we can assist
more students in the future based
on our math tutoring model."


For $1, students will be able to
purchase a pickle in the library.
This fundraiser will run daily
until supplies run out.
Also available for $1 are
tickets for a chance drawing to
win a large Union County Tiger
flag. The flag is currently being
displayed in the library. This
fundraiser runs through March
2. Tickets will be available in the
library or the front office.
Each. year, Bonnie Plants
distributes free cabbage plants to
third graders across the country
to foster an interest in gardening

cross cabbage plants produce
oversized heads making the
process even more exciting for
kids. As part of the program,
Bonnie Plants gives a $1,000
award to one student in each state
producing the largest cabbage
plant.
In an effort to encourage more
third-grade students to participate
in the program, several members
of the community have come
together and donated money to be"
used as an additional incentive.
In addition to money that Bonnie

The third annual Celebration
of Abilities Prom was held
recently-an event that provides
high school and postgraduate
exceptional education students
the opportunity to experience a
prom event in their honor.
The prom was held Feb. 10
at the Lake Butler Comnfunity
Center and was hosted by the
Florida Future Educators of
America from Union County
High School (UCHS) under the
direction of Tammy Harrison,
Cathy Griffis, Patsy Fortner and
Cathy Nelson.
The "Celebration of Abilities"
was a name that was originally
created by the FFEA president
Kelsey Harrison to let students
know that no matter what their
exceptionalities are, they are
special.
"They have abilities that go
beyond what people see in them.
This event is an opportunity
to celebrate the achievements
and contributions that kids
with exceptionalities make to
our community and schools,"
said Kelsey Harrison. Harrison
attended the 2011 prom but had
a special role to fill this year.
Each year, the UCHS girl named
Miss U1-Co.-Higb makes a special
appearance at this event. This
was Harrison's first Miss U-Co-
High public appearance, a title
she won just a few short weeks
ago.
This planned night of
entertainment and dancing was
dedicated to all of the students
who attended. Students arrived

The Power ofthe Tongue
In Proverbs 18:21 we read, "Death and life are in the power of
the tongue." Our tongues can be used to better or destroy others.
In James 3:3-6, the tongue is said to be a small member with
great power like a bit in a horse's mouth or a rudder on a ship.
One can easily misuse the power of the tongue. It can curse
instead of bless (James 3:10). It can lie instead of telling the
truth (Ephesians 4:25). It can stir up strife instead of making
peace (Proverbs 15:1). It is important that we learn to control
the tongue for Jesus said, "out of the abundance of the heart the'
mouth speaks ... for every idle word men may speak, they will
give account of it ... For by your words you will be justified and
by ydur words.you will be condemned" (Matthew 12:34-37).
What comes off of our tongue is important because it shows the
character of our heart and we will be judged for our words on
the last day.

She purchased some Popeye's

A chance to wear red, promote heart health


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
There are several steps to take
to ensure you maintain a healthy
heart, but perhaps one you
haven't thought of is maintain-
ing a better and consistent rela-
tionship with your primary care
physician.
That was Dr. Joelle Innocent-
Simon's message to those who
attended the annual Shands
Starke Regional Medical Cen-
ter/Altrusa International Inc. of
Starke Heart Health Luncheon,
which was held at Shands Starke
on Wear Red Day (Feb. 3) in
observance of heart health in
women.
Indeed, many who attended
the event were wearing red,
including guest speakers Inno-
cent-Simon, a family practitio-
ner with Shands Starke Medical
Group, and Dr. Jamie Conti, a
cardiologist and chief of Shands
HealthCare's Department of
Medicine, Division of Cardio-
vascular Medicine.
Innocent-Simon presented
some statistics that showed just
how serious heart disease is.
It is the leading cause of death
in women, and more than one
in three women are living with
heart disease. That includes ap-
proximately half of the African-
American female population and
34 percent of the white female
population.
"Every minute in the United


States, someone's wife, mother,
daughter or sister dies from heart
disease, stroke or other forms of
cardiovascular .disease," Inno-
cent-Simon said.
Heart disease-related death
rates in men have declined
steadily in the past 25 years*
whereas the rates for women
have not, Innocent-Simon said.
After presenting the facts,
though, Innocent-Simon said,
"I'm not really telling you any-
thing you don't already know or
anything you couldn't Google."
So what could Innocent-Si-
mon share with her audience
that maybe they hadn't thought
of? How about how important
the role of the primary care phy-
sician is when it comes to pre-
venting or treating cardiovas-
cular disease along with other
medical issues?
Innocent-Simon said people
oftentimes take better care of
their vehicles or their pets than
they do themselves. Regular vis-
its to a primary care physician,
however, will not only help pre-
vent or better treat diseases, but
make sense in terms of dollars
and cents.
"It's a lot less expensive for
you to see one of us when you're
healthy than it is when you're
sick," Innocent-Simon said.
"When you're sick, you're going
to see me today, you're going to
see me tomorrow, you're going
to see me next week and you're


Shands Starke's Carrie Johnson (left) visits with
Louise Dyal Miller while setting up for the luncheon.
Miller had a story to share with those in attendance-
she recently had her pacemaker replaced and
brought the old one with her to show to anybody
who wanted to see it.

health event sponsored by Shands Starke and Altrusa of Starke.


going to see me four weeks from
now because I'm going to make
sure I'm tracking your care."
Innocent-Simon likened her-
self as the conductor of an or-
chestra. The patient's overall
health is a piece of music. The
conductor knows how each in-
strument should sound within
the framework of the music,
much like the primary care phy-
sician knows how each part of a
patient's body should be acting
within the framework of optimal
health.
"I help guide the music of the
health of your life," Innbcent-'
Simon said. "Your primary care
physician is the doctor who you
will turn to for most of your
health care needs."
Primary care physicians are
the ones who can tell a patient
when he or she needs to go see
a specialist, such as a cardiolo-
gist, but the majority of the pa-
tient care should be handled by
a primary care physician, Inno-
cent-Simon said. In essence, the
specialist gets to the root of the
problem quickly and determines
a cure. Patients are usually re-
ferred back to their primary care
physicians to work out day-to-
day medical management.
"We become a very integral
part of your care," Innocent-
Simon said.
Conti, who was making her
third straight appearance at the
annual event, said she agreed
with Innocent-Simon about this
,important role a primary care
physician should provide and
offered some other preventa-
tive measures when it comes to
heart disease. One such measure
she couldn't emphasize enough.
In fact, she has mentioned it be-
fore.
"You heard me say it a year


ago," Conti said. "I'll say it
again. If you have a son or
daughter, take them for a walk.
If you don't have a son or a
daughter, get a dog and take it
for a walk. If you don't have any
of those, just take yourself for a
walk. Walking's one of the easi-
est, non-joint-hurting forms of
exercise.
"Starting an exercise program
can be extremely daunting, but
just step out of your front door
and walk around for 10 to 15
minutes a couple of times a day.
That's what's recommended in
terms of exercise."
A low-fat diet, of course, is
another preventative measure.
"If you can, stay away from
fast food," Conti said. "I like
fast food, too, but try to avoid it.
If it comes out of window, it's
probably not real food."
Whereas walking is an easy
preventative measure, quitting
smoking is not so easy for those
who do so, Conti said.
"I know it's the hardest thing
to do," Conti said, "but the sin-
gle-best thing you can do-for
yourself from a cardiovascular
standpoint is to stop smoking.
If you have sons or daughters,
don't let them start.
"Quitting smoking is the
equivalent of a heroin addict
trying to stop using intravenous
drugs. That's how hard it is."
Conti said those who are on
medications to address or help
prevent cardiovascular disease
should remember to take their
those medications religiously.
"Make sure they're some-
where where you see them every
day so you remember to take

Things that make


you g4

BY RAMONA PETRY
Special to the Telegraph-Times-
Monitor
People complain all of the time
about what our elected officials
do or don't do and how changes
implemented affect their lives
and those of their families. Yet
\ hen \ ou make the statement that
the\ are "our elected officials,"
the most common response is,"I
didn't vote for them."
These are, however, elected
officials, so how did they get
.into office if no one voted for
them?
This took just a little bit of
research to figure out. According
.o the Bradford County
Supervisor of Elections office,
.there are 15,810 registered
others s (7,674 Democrats, 6,250
Republicans and 1,886 others)
in Bradford County. The 2010
Census Bureau reports 28,520
residents of Bradford County,
22.885 of which are of voting
age, also according to the Census

Bureau.
The election votes reported by
the Bradford County Supervisor
of Elections office for the past
four years show that the average
voter turnout is only 38.8 percent,
or approximately 6,134 voters.
That is the number of people
who are registered to vote. Then
add to the equation that there are
22,885 residents eligible to vote,
and that moves the percentage
down to 26.8 percent of the
county's population voting.
People value their jobs, homes
and incomes. Yet when it comes
time to decide who will oversee
your rights, most people don't
even bother to put forth the effort
to vote on who they believe
would implement or change the
things they want done.
From the numbers, it's easy
to see that most of the people
who said, "I didn't vote for him/
her," are telling the truth. They
most likely didn't bother to vote
at all.


If this county and country
want to see change and want to
see the best person put in the
correct office, then everyone
needs to step up and vote.
Don't, however,just step up to
the polls and cast a vote just to
say you voted. Take a little time
and find out about the candidates.
Talk to people and find out what
they think or know, go online
and do a little research on the
candidates or turn the music off
of the radio and turn on talk or
news radio. You will be surprised
at what you learn.
Make an informed decision.
Then cast your vote. With early
voting, voting by mail and the
polls staying open all day, there
is really no reason for anyone to
say, "I didn't have time."
Just an FYI in regard to
voter turnouts in Bradford
County, these are averages of
the population of registered
voters at the specified time that
did vote: 1966-80.5 percent,
1976-55 percent, 1986-62
percent, 1996-49 percent and
2006-41 percent.
If you wonder why officials can
get away with doing what they
want to do, making changes that
affect our community, friends
and neighbors-negatively or
positively-just think about this.
This trending shows that fewer
and fewer people care enough to
get involved and vote.

Do the right
thing on
redistricting
Dear Editor:
Well, well, just who is sur-
prised at the county commis-
sion's behavior on the redistrict-
ing issue? However, you have
to be proud of the district three
commissioner for her stand on
what should be done.
Both Eddie Lewis and Doyle
Thomas know in their heart of
hearts that the purpose of re-
districting is to have an equal
number of people in every dis-
trict. Just how complicated can
an issue like that be? Both Ross
Chandler and Danny Riddick
also failed in their responsibil-
ity by not voting to bring about
equalized districts.
Is it politics as usual? Are
the people in office afraid they
might be voted out of office?
Even gerrymandering wasn't an
issue to be discussed, after the
courts said that it is illegal.
We have to be proud of Lila
Sellars and her stand on this is-
sue. God bless a person who
wants to do what is right, re-
gardless of the circumstances.
I would hope that the commis-
sioners, at their regular meeting,
do the right thing.

HPD missed
on 301, but for
different
reason
Dear Editor:
I feel compelled to respond
to the opinion posted by Donna
Bryan Rowe in the Thursday,
Feb. 9, edition of the Telegraph
regarding the Hampton Police
Department being missed- on
U.S 301. 1 agree with her totally
that they will be missed, but for
totally different reasons.
First of all, I'm wholly in favor
of reasonable law enforcement.
But occasionally, a law enforce-
ment department just can't resist
hiding behind their badges.and
fleecing the motoring public and
claiming it's all done in the name
of public safety. In my opinion
this is exactly what the Hamp-
ton Police Department has been
doing for years on U.S. 301, as
well as the rest of Hampton.
What they've been doing ought
to be against the law instead of
being the law. A town with one
red light (which they annexed
into the city) and slightly more
than 400 residents-and the city
of Hampton deems it necessary
to have 17 law enforcement per-
sonnel and 6-8 police vehicles.
A recent article in the Telegraph
claimed that the head of the po-
lice department indicated that
the citations were written to
generate money to successfully
fight the drug problem in Hamp-
ton. What a joke.
What I don't understand is
why nearby cities such as Starke,
Baldwin, Keystone Heights,

Lake Butler and others don't
seem to have such a problem
with traffic law enforcement that
they find it necessary to carry
law enforcement to the level that
Hampton does. Hampton has
taken so-called law enforcement
to level that I call predatory law
enforcement.
The writer (of the previous
letter) states that it's a sad day
when politicians get together to
stop another law enforcement
agency from enforcing the law.
Danny Riddick and the rest of
the "politicians" mentioned in
the article are, in my opinion,
simply correcting something that
is wrong-and what is wrong is
the blatant abuse of power by
the city of Hampton. If it be-
comes necessary to threaten the
removal of a city charter to stop
the abuse, so be it. I, and many
others, applaud Danny Riddick
and the others for their stand in
halting the abuse.
Police officials in Hampton
can claim all they want that it's
all done in the name of public
safety and law enforcement but
let's face it. We all know that the
primary motivation in the whole
issue is money.
And in case you're wondering,
no, I'm not writing this letter be-
cause I got a ticket in Hampton
Bill Oliver

Is 5 minutes
worth saving a
life?
Dear Editor:
Ed Sherwood was killed
Tuesday morning (Feb. 7) in a
head-on collusion. Think about
this for a moment... are safety
departments placing speed-limit
signs, double' yellow lines and
;the like for the fun of it? No!
They are 'posted with the expec-
tation of drivers obeying them. It
is the law. Not obeying them has
caused a family to be without
a father-husband-son-brother-
friend. He died so needlessly.
How terribly sad!
You may wonder where all
the police officers are when
someone'is deliberatelyy breaking
driving laws.'Maybe watching a
lot of "safe" drivers pass by due
to a nice driver warning the on-
coming traffic by flashing their
headlights that there is a patrol
car ahead? All of us have experi-
enced this at one time or another.
That too is illegal.
Most people think this is
great. However, if they drove
down the road and saw a loved
one in a fatal accident that may
have been avoided, would the
knowledge that some nice per-
son flashed his lights and kept
a possibly impaired driver from
getting stopped take away the
pain? I think not! The "nice"
person who flashed the warning
may never know they indirectly
caused an accident, but isn't that
what really happened? (I'm not
talking about the accident in-
volving Ed.)
Most officers are out there not
to "get" us, but actually to keep
us from hurting ourselves and

maybe more importantly others.
I have lived in Clay County most
of my adult life (a long time). I
have lived in Orange Park, Mid-
dleburg and worked in Green
Cove Springs. I have lived in
Keystone for five years.
I think the drivers in this area
are worse than those in Atlanta.
How hard is it to leave. your
house 15-30 minutes early? If
necessary, pretend you have
to get there earlier so you will
leave earlier. Are you in danger
of being shot if you arrive late?
Arriving late is a much better al-
ternative to killing someone by
trying to get to a destination on
time when you are already late.
Would you appreciate someone
choosing to be late rather' than
driving in an unsafe mannerif
you knew your spouse-child-
family were headed for certain
.death if they'didn't?
Please people wake up-
it is too late for Ed Sherwood
and his family. Ed was a super
nice person. He always had a
smile and something nice to
say. Hopefully it won't be too
late for your family or mine! it
breaks my heart for someone to
get killed like this and then for it
be called an accident. To me this
wasn't an accident-this could
have been avoided! A careless
driver drove on Ed's side of the
road and killed him. This could
have been your loved one or nmy
loved one--it was the Sherwood
family's loved one and a lot-of
people's friend.

Commission
should do the
right thing
Dear Editor:
As a taxpayer, a voter and a
committee member selected to
help redraw the district lines,
I have been very interested'in
the outcome of the votes by the
school board and the county
commissioners. The commit-
tee members were picked arid
asked to serve by their school
board and county commission
members. The committee was
brought in to come up with new
district lines that met three cri-
teria:
Get the majority-minority
district (district 1) back to..at
least 50 percent plus one.
Redraw the other four dis-
tricts to bring numbers under 10
percent difference (our media
number was 5,335, meaning-we
should have less than 533 differ-.
ence between the smallest dis-
trict and the largest district.
Have the same district for
both the school board and the
county commission. .
Once the committee came
up with some alternatives, they
would be submitted to the boards
and they would vote on them as
is, or tweak them and pass to
the next board that would pass
or tweak to their liking. This
process could have been very

lengthy.
After a lot of work from Mrs.
Carol Milner, the committee was
given a "starter plan" that gave
us a majority-minority at better
than 50 percent and a starting
point to begin this process. The
committee greatly appreciated
the elected officials who attend-
ed and offered their concerns
and help on this project. At the
first meeting, we requested them
to attend every meeting. This
committee members' thought
process was, "If we all work to-
gether and come to an agreement
during these meetings with input
from both boards, it would save
a lot of time." Meaning, if we
left our final meeting in agree-
ment, then the votes could be
made within a week or two and
the redrawing could be started
almost immediately.
There were several meetings
'and a lot of input from Lila Sell-
ars, Stacy Creighton and Randy
Jones-not only staying late and
being very hands-on, but, meet-
ing with the supervisor of elec-
tions office on their own time
and coming up with more plans.
(Imagine that, elected officials
actually earning my taxpayer
dollars.) The committee came
up with three plans that not only
met our stated criteria but also
state constitution criteria.
The state constitution has 10
points to follow when re-dis-
tricting. I will give you the first
four (most important):
1) Equal (almost) in popula-
tion
2) Don't dilute minority vot-
ing strength
3) Use Census blocks
4) No bizarre shapes
There is also one that says
keep districts compact and con-
tiguous (to keep from the ger-
rymandering laws), which the
committee also was able to do.
After requesting some ad-
ditional information from the
Supervisor of Elections' office,
for my own research and under-
standing, I was shown a Power-
point put together by a law firm
that specializes in these matters.
In short it says: Equal (almost)
in population means between
one percent and three percent
deviation or as small as-possible.
Two districts %ith population_
more than 10 percent of differ-
ence may raise a red flag.
This is the point with which I
have a problem: Not only did the
committee present three plans
that were less than 10 percent,
but with minor tweaking by the
three named elected officials
mentioned above, one plan was
redrawn to less than one percent
difference. This plan was the
only one that met the state con-
stitution fully. The other three
were agreed upon because it
made the redrawing less harsh
and still fell below the red flag
of 10 percent.
The plan the county commis-
sion wants is 35 percent-plus.
This is a huge red flag.
I really believe the county
commissioners are gambling
with taxpayer money by open-
ing the county to potential legal
action. Win or lose, we are wast-
ing money on a lawyer to argue
our case.
If Mr. (Doyle) Thomas is wor-
ried about being thought easily
swayed, I would think that is
better than having the reputation
of someone who works outside
the lines. There is right and there


is wrong. Right is voting a plan
that meets the. state constitu-
tion. Wrong is knowingly voting
"yes" on something that does not
meet the state constitution and
opens the county to a lawsuit
and possibly wastes taxpayer
money.
Lawsuit or not, they are wast-
ing taxpayer money by not
reaching an agreement on the
new lines with the school board,
thereby costing the county more
money on the next election by
having two different sets of dis-
trict lines
The county commission has
the chance to right a wrong and
pick a plan that meets the state
constitution. Let's be proactive
and do the right thing up front

Faithful dog,
faithless own-
er
To whom it should concern but
apparently didn't:
I watched you in your black
pickup truck pulling a lawn-
mower trailer, and saw you drop
your pet off. Your sunny brown
dog waited for two days in the
exact spot you dropped him off
at. I gave him some water and
food before calling the animal
control department.
Sir, maybe you don't under-
stand the social contract man has
with his dog. So let me explain:
you feed and care for them and
they'll give you more love than
you deserve. You violated that
contract.
I hope your kids didn't see
what I saw, a low-down scum
who didn't even have the hu-
manity to take him to the animal
shelter. .1 hope you never own
a dog again because you sure
don't deserve one.
Sincerely,
Robert Ackert

Dog finds

home to match

breeding
Dear Editor:
On July23, he was four months
old and he was adopted from the
Alachua County Animal Ser-
vices by an elderly couple. The
husband saw his big feet and had
a feeling that he was going to
grow into a big dog. This elderly
couple didn't have a fenced-in
back yard and lived by them-
selves. Quickly, Woody began
to grow. Woody was going to be
a big dog. Woody is a Catahoula
mix. A Catahoula can weigh 55-
80 pounds. A Catahoula needs
attention, direction, something
to do and a strong owner.
At some point while trying to
take Woody on a walk, Woody
tripped the wife. She broke her
hip and at that point they real-
ized that.they had made a mis-
take. But they loved him and
wanted to find him a good home.
They asked around for help and
my name was given to them. I
met with them and Woody and
quickly realized that I needed to
get Woody into a better place-
ment before he became a mean
dog and not just active. The el-
derly couple was unable to con-
trol him. He was approximately
eight months old and 35-40


pounds.
After placing an ad in the pa-
per, a couple called who had a
fenced-in yard, another dog that
could be a friend to Woody,
and took their dogs in at'night.
Of all the calls this seeiimed the
best one. So in mid-November,
Woody went to live at his new
home. I placed the adoption of
Woody in the win column.
Thanksgiving and Christmas
went by and I was busy working
and adopting out other cats and
dogs. Then a few weeks after
New Year's, I received an email
from Woody's owners. It seems
that they had taken in another
male dog to help someone out.
Within a week, Woody attacked
that dog and it had to be taken
to a veterinarian. We all agreed
that Woody probably needed to
find a new home. However, his
placement wasn't going to be as
easy as before.
We all were worried that
Woody had become a violent
,dog that would have to be eutha-
nized. After talking to everyone
(including a Catahoula rescue
group trainer) about Woody, I
made the decision to try to find
him a home that would match his
breed. The rescue group let me
know that it is not unusual for a
male Catahoula to attack another
male. So with that information I
advertised Woody again and did
a lot of praying.
I received some calls about
Woody and quickly eliminated
them if they didn't fit Woody
and his situation. This past Sat-
urday, I received a call from a
man who described himself as
a cowboy and said that his fam-
ily had always had Catahoula
dogs on their ranch. He said that
Woody would go everywhere he
goes. He trained lots of dogs and
would train Woody.
It seemed to meet all the re-
quirements that Woody needed
to have a good home. Even af-
ter telling him what Woody had
done to the other dog, the cow-
boy drove up and I let him take
Woody on a handshake with the
stipulation that I would make a
visit to Woody's new home one
day next week.
It was hard for us to let him
go, but we all felt like this was
,Woody's chance. Monday, I will
call Woody's new owner and ar-
range a day this week to visit. I
want to make sure that Woody's
new home will be his final home.
The only thing Woody has been
guilty of is being a Catahoula
and not being placed in the right
home.

Tigers defeat 21-2 Chiefland team to win district title


-BY DAN HILDEBRAN
'-.StarkeJournal.com Editor

"T'he Union County boys',
a sketball team sleepwalked
through the first half of its Dis-
triet 7-1A tournament opener
With Baldwin, falling behind
,- 18. Coach RufuS Jefferson
s qunded the alarm at the half,
aid the Lake Butler squad re-
bounded, hustled and pressed its
ay past the Duval County team
.,47.
..The Tigers then carried their
setond-half momentum from
Peb. 10 to stun a heavily favored
CWiefland squad the follow-
ing night to claim the District 7
championship Feb. 11 in New-
l(%ry.
.iI really challenged my guys,"
said Jefferson of his first game
halftime talk. "I told them their
season was about to be over
and if they wanted the season to
be over, just keep playing like
y6('ve been playing."
The coach didn't wait until
halftime to send a message to
his starting five. He pulled the'
entire crew from the court with
2:25 left in the first quarter.
"That's something I never do,"
recalled the coach. "I was frus-
trated. They were dead. I wanted
to sit them down. I've got guys
who like to be in the action and I
wa sending a message to them:
if you don't like sitting over here
then do what you need to do in
oier to stay on the. court, and
tht's what they did."
,J.,Jefferson also opened the sec-
3- half \ith a full court press.

ratcheting up the intensity of his
team and forcing Baldwin into
turnovers. Union County out-
scored the Indians 18-4 in the
third quarter and never looked
back, cruising to a 60-47 final.
Shaimea Maeweather led the
team in scoring with 23 points,
while Keldric Bradley and
Daquin Edwards scored 12 and
11 points, respectively.
The Tigers then rode the in-
tensity of Friday night's second
half into Saturday's contest with
the seventh-ranked Chiefland
Indians. This time though, there
was no first-half swoon. The Ti-
gers came out strong, posting a
32-29 halftime lead against the
21-2 team from Levy Count'.

Continued from 3B

them," Conti said.
Her final piece of advice was
ir people to be aware of their
numbers.
"Know what your blood pres-
sure is," Conti said. "Know what
your cholesterol is. Know your
triglycerides, your blood glu-
cose. All of that can be very eas-
I 1' attainable from your primary
care physician."
Conti and Innocent-Simon
took part in a brief question-and-
answer session, which featured
Conti differentiating between a
heart attack, cardiac arrest and
,-congestive heart failure.
-A heart attack involves some-
one experiencing the well-known
symptoms of chest pains, chest
pressure and difficulty breath-
ing, Conti said. A heart attack is
when a coronary artery becomes
.iLogged and narrows, reducing
Sthe amount of blood that flows
S.to the heart with oxygen.
S "'"A piece of the heart muscle
I dies," Conti said. "That's a heart
Attackk"
SA person's heart is still beat-
Sing during a heart attack. Car-
Sdiac arrest, however, is when the
| heart's electrical system mal-
functiohs, causing the heart to
Stop beating.
"That's when people just fall
over dead," Conti said.
S Defibrillation or CPR can be
Performed to resuscitate a per-
. son who has suffered cardiac


) drives past one man to



arrest provided it is done quick
enough.
Congestive heart failure is
when the heart does function,
but not like it should, restricting-
the flow of blood to other parts
of the body, Conti said.
In response to Innocent-
Simon's own question for the
benefit of the audience, Conti
.discussed the different tests one
Smay undergo in relation to heart
disease. An echocardiogram is
like an ultrasound, Conti said,
and allows doctors to see how
the heart is functioning and if
there are any defects-
A stress test, which usually
involves a person walking on a
treadmill, is for those who have
been experiencing some supsi-
cious symptoms, such as the in-
ability to perform as much phys-
ical activity in the past without
becoming short of breath and
chest discomfort.
"A stress test looks for block-
age in the arteries," Conti said.
"It looks to see if your heart is
getting enough blood when you
exercise."

If a stress test reveals there
may be issues, a person will then
be referred for a heart catheter-
ization, which is where a tiny
catheter is inserted into an ar-
tery in the leg and threaded up
through the body and into the
heart.
"Then we inject dye into the
arteries," Conti said. The dye
can be seen on X-rays and show
if there is any artery blockake.


paced the Tigers with eight and
seven first-half points, respec-
tively.
The two defenses clamped
down in the third period with
both tearris held to under 12
points. Maewether accounted
for more than half of the Tiger's
production of nine points.
Union County pulled away
again in the forth quarter, de-
spite Alexander fouling out.
Sophomore Austin Dukes'came
in for the forward, and racked
up four violations himself in the
last quarter of the game.
"He's a sensational sopho-
more and he held his own," Jef-
ferson said of Alexander's re-
placement.
The Tigers opened up a four-
point lead with three minutes
remaining. Alexander then sunk
a two-pointer before posting his
fifth foul, and Bradley connect-
ed on two free throws.
A Chiefland player then drew
a technical foul by slamming the
ball down, and Maeweather add-
ed another point, opening a 56-
47 lead with a minute remaining.
The Indians were forced to foul
and Bradley and Maeweather
both connected on the front ends
of two-shot free throws, result-
ing in a 60-53 Union County
win.
Maeweather finished with
24 points, while Alexander and
Bradley had 14 and 12, respec-
tively.
Jefferson said his group was
motivated by the reward of a
home playoff game that came
with the championship.
"I told my guys we need. to
pick up tonight where we left
off last night in the second half,"
Jefferson said. "They under-
stood not only the importance
of the district championship but
also the home court advantage in
the first round of the playoffs."
The Tigers host the Villages
on Tuesday, Feb. 21, in Lake
Butler at 7 p.m.

BMS girls win SMAC title


* BY CLIFF SMELLEY
, Regional News/Sports Editor
S.'Bradford Middle School shook
off a slow start to the season and
reeled off 11 straight wins, cul-
minating in a 42-26 win over
Williston in the championship
of'the Suwannee Middle Athlet-
i Conference girls' basketball
tournament.
; ;:.Head coach Edward Hamilton
said. this year's team was fuled
by the cancellation of last year's
tournament due to an incidence
of shoving and heightened emo-
tions following a regular-season
boys' basketball game between
Bradford and Lake Butler. Brad-
ford would've been the number-
qroe seed entering'last year's
:tournament, but had no chance
itoplay for a title.
"They deserved to be the ones
.to hold (this year's.). trophy,"
1itiilton said.
.The Hurricanes opened the
tournament with a 35-8 win over
Keystone Heights, getting 17
.points from Nyasia Davis and 10
lfoirts from Tracey Kemp. ,
"They came out. and "-peri:
;formed, and played an outstand-
ing game," Hamilton said.
SBradford led at the half of
'its championship game against
Williston, but it was only an
'r ight-point margin. The second
-half saw the Hurricanes utilize
, an fensive set they hadn't used
aI year and had in fact been sav-
;igofot the championship game.
i i~p, playing point guard, set
iU-iopportunities for the teani's
post players by penetrating and
dishing passes to players such as
Davis, who would go on to fin-
ish with 22 points.
.':.'pemp also scored in double
figures with 15 points.
Hamilton said Meghan Woods
and Markayla Sanford did a good
jobof taking turns at defending
'Wil.iston's best player.
In the end, the team hoisted a
trophy it never got to play for the
previous season.
.They went and played their
hearts out," Hamilton said.
The Hurricanes were so close
to having a perfect season. They
opened with a 26-25 loss to
Chiefland and lost 24-22 to Key-
todhe in their third game.
For their fifth game, the Hur-
ricarles faced the prospect of
traveling to play a Williston
team that was undefeated at the
itiie. Hamilton said the players
,were so nervous beforehand that
:he suggested to them they just
call Williston and inform the
schbol that Bradford wouldn't
given bother showing up to play
the game.
Hamilton's point was for the
players to not focus on Wil-

liston's undefeated record but
to focus on being the team that
would hand. Williston its first
loss. The Hurricanes won the
game 28-17.
"That 'was one of the better
games they played all season
long," Hamilton said.
In fact, Bradford would defeat
Williston twice during the regu-
lar season, winning the second
game 34-27.
Bradford players were con-
fident heading into the tourna-
ment and prior to the champion-
ship game.
"I told them we've got the
edge," Hamilton said, referring
to the fact Williston had not ex-
perienced a win over Bradford
this season.
Several players took on ma-
jor roles in helping the team
win its conference, including
eighth-graders Davis, Kemp and
Woodss.
Hamilton said Davis respond-
ed well to taking on the role of
leader this season. For example,
if the team was not going 100
."'pet&ent in practice; she was the
One 'ho encouragedd them to
pick the tempo up.
"She was wanting to take on
that leadership role," Hamilton
said. "She stepped up."
Kemp, a transfer from Gaines-
ville, did not play for Bradford
last year, but she brought "heart
and soul" to the team, Hamilton
said, and was just as motivated
as the players who played on the
team last year.
"She just came in with a lot of
enthusiasm and helped the team
to see,'Hey, we have a chance,"'
Hamilton said.
Woods is a "great" defensive
player who just loves the game
of basketball, Hamilton said.
"She-just has that fire and


desire," Hamilton said. "Some-
times, I have to calm her down.
She's so anxious to get the job
done."
Another player who stepped
up was seventh-grader Tessa
Ricker, Hamilton said. She was
eager to become a better player
and do everything in her power
to help the team be better.
"She really displayed the atti-
tude of,.'This is what it takes to
win,'" Hamilton said.
Joining Ricker, Davis, Kemp,
Woods and Sanford, a sixth-
grader, were sixth-graders Ma-
kayla Carter and Jah'mya Hen-
derson, seventh-graders Hannah
Campbell, Madison McClellan,
Liana Sanford and Jimea Ty-
son, and eighth-graders Lata-
jari Leath, Tamija McCray and
Quanesha Stewart.

ner-up Jasmine Baker of South
Lake.
Baker had a bench press
that was 25 pounds better than
Cook's best lift, but Bradford
coach Deac Story said he wasn't
worried about Cook's chances.
He said he knew if she had three
successful clean-and-jerk at-
tempts after her three successful
bench-press attempts, she would
be at or near the top.
As for the personal-record
clean-and-jerk total, it was a

Gainesville.
"I knew she could do it," Sto-
ry said.
Cook said the clean-and-jerk
event is what she's strongest in
anyway and felt she could win if
she was successful on all three
of her attempts.
"I just pushed myself," Cook
said. "No matter what, I had to
get it."
Story said Cook did what w as

"I think she deserved to win
because of the way she worked
throughout the season," Story
said.
Cook's friend Morgan
Boettcher, a junior at Keystone
Heights High School, also com-
peted in the unlimited class, tak-
ing third and earning a medal
herself with a 420 total. Boettch-
er had a bench press of 215 and
a clean and jerk of 205.
Boettcher qualified for state
as a seventh-grader and has been
back every year since. This was
her third straight year earning
a medal, and she was a state
champion in the 199 class as a
freshman.
"That's just amazing," Key-
stone coach Connie Crawford
said.
Boettcher, Cook and Baker
were definitely the cream of the
crop as Boettcher's total was 45

bench press, 105 clean and jeik),
while the Tornadoes' Karen
Clark placed 24h' with a person-
al-record total of 195 (95, 100).
Both lifters were making their
first-ever trips to state. Miller is
a junior and Clark a freshman.
Now that the tears have dried,
and she has laid claim to a state
championship, it is time for
Cook to think about her senior
year, Story said.
"I enjoyed it Saturday and
Sunday," Story said. "I wanted
her to do the same. As of right
now, it's over with-2013 starts
on Monday."
Cook admitted it will be hard
to put the euphoria of winning
behind her, saying,"I don't think
it'll wear off. It's too amazing."
However, she is determined to
do what it takes for a repeat per-
formance next year.

"I think I can (win state
again)," she said. "If I put my
mind to it like I did this year, I
think I'll have it again."

4 Bradford wrestlers qualify for state tournament


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Jarraid Forsyth and Devin
Paulk won.the championships of
their classes, while Cody Han-
kerson and Phillip James each
earned a third-place finish at the
Region 1-Class 1A wrestling fi-
nals on Feb. 10-11 at Clay High
School in Green Cove Springs.
By virtue of their top-four
finishes, the four wrestlers will
compete at the Florida High
School Athletic Association Fi-
nals this weekend in Lakeland.
Bradford coach Dana Arthur
said it was quite an accomplish-
ment for Bradford against such
schools as Clay and University
Christian.
"That's something special,"


Arthur said.
Forsyth (35-1) won the
138-pound class and, perhaps,
saved his best for the semifinal
and championship matches. Ar-
thur admitted he thought both
matches would be close affairs,
but Forsyth claimed a 14-4 ma-
jor decision over Doug Miner of
Panama City Arnold in the semi-
finals and a 15-6 major decision
over Travis Hinsey of Wakulla
to win the championship.
"Jarraid probably wrestled the
best tournament I've ever seen
a kid wrestle," said Arthur, al-
luding to the fact Forsyth is a
sophomore.
Forsyth advanced to the semi-
finals by pinning the first two
opponents he faced during the

first-day of action. He pinned
Terrance Ruddy of Panama City
Bozeman in 1:27 and pinned
Dylon Brown of Bishop Kenny
in 4:37.






Phillip James

battles it out
-, '&"l with University
Christian's
p Josh Fox, the
top 195-pound
wrestler in the
state. Fox got
the win, but
James would go
on to win two
more matches to
place third.


Paulk (35-3) recorded two
straight come-from-behind vic-
tories and also wrestled with a
rib injury sustained in his final
match to win the 160 class.
"It tells a lot about his heart
and character," Arthur said.
Paulk defeated Justin Love
of Yulee and Logan Fletcher
of Suwannee by scores of 13-7
and 16-8, respectively, in the
first two rounds. In his semifinal
match against Kris Kenney of
Bozeman, he trailed 8-1 before
coming back and scoring the
winning point in the final sec-
onds. That gave Paulk a 13-12
win and a berth in the champi-
onship match.
Jake Bain of Clay had Paulk
down 10-5 midway through'the
second period in the champion-
shp match, but Paulk rallied to
tie the score at 13-all to force an
overtime period. Paulk eventu-
ally won 15-13.
Hankerson and James each
won their first two matches
' to- advancee.~ tO'.-the" seriifinal's,
where each lost. They then each
recorded two straight wins to


claim their third-place finishes
in the 152 and 195 classes, re-
spectively.
Hankerson (34-9) pinned Da-
vid McKee of Bozeman in 2:39
to start his tournament off. He
then scored an 8-6 overtime
win over Corey Hicks of Flor-


ida High before losing 3-2 to
Bolles' Robbey Pye-a highly
ranked wrestler-in the-semifi-
nals. Hankerson bounced back,
wrestling his way to the third-
place match before facing Hicks
again and winning 9-3.
James, a state qualifier last
year as a sophomore, dominated
his opponents at the start, pin-
ning James Austin of Episcopal
in 17 seconds and Cody Sikes of
Arnold in 41 seconds. James-was
then pinned by the top-ranked
wrestler in the state in the 195
class-Josh Fox of University
Christian-in the semifinals.
Arthur said he had no doubts
that James would bounce back
with a state-qualifying win.
James wants to prove that going
to state last year and coming up
one win short of earning a medal
was not a fluke, Arthur said.;
"He wants to show a lot df
people he's a good wrestler.:aid
not just a very gifted athlete,"
Arthur said.
James (31-4) did rebound,
pinning his next opponent in the
first round before recordingia
14-4 major decision over M r-
cus Roberts of Panama City Ru-
therford to claim third place.
Brent Kebby and Markel Parks
also wrestled for Bradford in:the
220 and 245 classes, respective-
ly. Each went 2-2. Kebby's: two
wins came by pins of 3:55:and
3:13, while Parks pinned two
opponents in 5:36 and 1:41.::,
As a team, Bradford placed.
sixth with 92 points. Clay
topped the team standings with
198 points, followed by Univer-
sity Christian (175), Wakulla
(161.5), Bolles (130) and SuWtn-
nee (108).

Tornadoes denied title after double-overtime loss


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Brian Walton made two free
throws to force overtime, but the
Bradford boys' basketball team.
couldn't make the clutch plays
it needed to to avoid a second
overtime period as host Wil-
liston' eventually outlasted the
Tornadoes 84-81 to win the Dis-
trict 5-4A championship on Feb.
1 in Williston.
Bradford was attempting to
win its fourth straight district
championship, but will now
have to take to the road for the
regional playoffs, beginning
with a Thursday, Feb. 16, quar-
terfinal game against Mount
Dora at 7 p.m.
"I was proud of my kids and
the way they fought.They fought
great tonight," Bradford head
coach Traavis Chandler said.
"We had opportunities to win
the game several times. I think
with the bounce of the ball, the
game could've gone either way.
"It just went the home team's
Sway tonight."
Bradford (15-13) led by four
points in the first overtime pe-
riod after Walton made a free
throw with approximately a min-
ute remaining. In fact, the Tor-
nadoes had outscored Williston
7-3 despite losing center Justin
McBride, who fouled out at the
2:11 mark of overtime with 22
points and 16.rebounds.
Detereon Ross banked a shot
in on his drive to the basket to
pull the Red Devils to within 71-
69 with 44 seconds to play. Wil-
liston's Tre Wilson then stole a
pass at the other end of the court
and took it the distance for a
layup with 24 seconds left that
would eventually force a second
overtime period.
,"We've got to learn to take
better care of the ball," said
Chandler, whose team turned
the ball over approximately 30
times. "At the same' time, we
know we've got two guards (in
Walton and Keaaris-Ardley)
who are sophomores who start
for us. They're young. They've
got to get experience. They've
got to learn.
"They ciin' leii.'ri'6l(t from this -
game."
Ross, who led all scorers with
34 points, put the Devils (18-7)
up 30-22 in the second quar-
ter after making a leaning bank
shot and subsequent free throw.
Walton answered by driving the
baseline for a score and drawing
a foul. Walton missed the free
throw, but McBride grabbed the
miss and put it back to pull the
Tornadoes to within four. An-
other basket by McBride off of
an Ardley assist made it a 30-28
game, but Ros, after a Bradford
turnover, was fouled on ashot
attempt and made both ensuing
free throws.
Ross had a chance to add an-
other score before the half. It ap-
peared as if he was going to get
a layup following his own steal,
Sbut Ardley stole the ball back
to allow Bradford to go into the
half trailing by four.
SThe third quarter saw Williston
go up 42-36 after scoring baskets
following Bradford turnovers on
two straight possessions. Brad-
ford, though, closed the quarter
by outscoring the Red Devils
6-2. Deon Aldridge made a
3-pointer. which was followed
