Commission-.
ers move to

keep out sex
businesses
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com editor
The Union County Commis-
sion, Monday, began the process
of forcing sexually oriented busi-
nesses to a section of the county
that doesn't exist.
Commissioners held a public
hearing and had the first reading
of an ordinance; which regulated
any future strip clubs, pornogra-
phy shops or other sexually ori-
ented businesses to land zoned
for industrial use. However, now
the county has no land zoned as
industrial.
"We can't ban this type, of
stuff from the county," said
county board chairman Wayne
Smith, "but we have to desig-
nate an area that it can be done
in.",
Commissioners must conduct
one more public hearing for the
Ordinance to become law. They
have scheduled another hearing'
for July 30.

In other county commission
news:

Chairman criticiz-
es road workers
Smith heaped praise on Union
County workers and department
heads, but his corpplements did
not extend to some road depart-
ment workers.
"The road department s got
some employees I am not happy
with because they/ didn't work
overtime," said Smith.
He added that many county
employees worked 10 and 12-
hour days during the emergency
and if the road department em-
ployees had been willing to work
overtime, that would have taken
the pressure off the other work-
ers.
Smith thanked Clerk of Courts
Regina Parrish for lending the
storm team four workers to doc-
ument meetings with FEMA and
state officials and processing the
necessary paperwork.
He also complimented Emer-
gency Manager John Walker for
coordinating the storm recovery
effort.
"The three emergency man-
agers] .before him were good
people, but beyond a shadow of
doubt he is the best," Smith said
of Walker.
Smith added that unlike pre-
-vious emergencies, there were
no communication gaps while
county workers dealt with the
storm. "Everybody worked to-
gether," he said.
Smith also thanked the sher---
iff's office and the solid waste
department for supporting the ef-
fort. He and EMS director Chris
Drum cited county fire chief
Mitch Andrews for his perfor-
marice during the emergency.

Library direc-
tor recaps com-
munity day,
Library director Mary Brown
thanked county workers for their
participation in the library's
community day, July 12. She
said around 135 children partic-
ipated in the event which repre-
sented the county's future emer-
gency personnel. She added
that participants were impressed
with the ambulance, firefighting
equipment and sheriff's patrol
car supplied by county depart-
ments.

County trying
for free mosqui-
to spraying
Walker said the county's bill
for aerial mosquito spraying
could approach $40,000, if it pays
the routine 12.5 percent match

vice. He said he heard Bradford

Health department faces critics union coun-
,I. ty property
tax roll drops


The administrator of the Bradford'and Lnion County health departments, Winifrea Holland faced some skeptical
members of the Union County Commission Monday night Holland sat quietly as four former employees complained
about the management of the Union County operation. Commissioners Ricky Jenkins, Wayne Smith and Morris
Dobbs also commented on the department. Facing Holland are (I-r) Commissioners Karen Cossey and Jimmy Tall-
man, board secretary Diane Hannon and commissioners Wayne Smith, Morris Dobbs and Ricky Jenkins.

Formeremployees ofthe Union
County Health Department came
before the Board of County
Commissioners at the regular
board meeting held earlier this
week to address issues within the
department they claimed they to
have had endured during their
employment.
Sally Keller was the first to
speak, a former employee with
nearly 30 years of service to
the health department before
resigning. Keller served in
several capacities during her
employment'to include a dual
role as the nurse practitioner/
nursing director for, Union and
Bradford. Keller said that she was
asked to serve as a spokesperson
for a number of former health
department employees who had
complaints.
Keller said that the Bradford

turnover in staff. Thirty-' insurance or lMedicaid," said'


five employees had left the
department, including 8 nurse
practitioners and 5 physicians.
Of those who left, Keller said
the majority felt intimidated and
harassed.
"Vacancies at the health
department should be filled with
candidates from Union County
who are committed and care about
the community," said Keller.
According to Keller, a position
Swas created and was filled by
a Bradford County Licensed
practical nurse (LPN) that was
never posted, giving no one from
Union an opportunity to apply.
Keller said this individual was
responsible for the resignation
of a registered nurse (RN) Jean
Brannen, the termination of a
nurse practitioner Anna Perkins
and the resignation of a Board
Certified Physician, Kathleen
McNamara, all since May of this


Keller, claiming that they have
not been giving priority to those
without medical coverage.
"Health statistics for Union
County have never been so
bad," said Keller, referring to
the results of the Robert Wood
Johnson/University of Wisconsin
county rankings released inApril.
Union County placed 67'" out of
67 counties; listed as having the
poorest health in the state.
"Assuring that you are aware
of these issues is the first step
in helping improve the health
and well-being of Union County
citizens, said Keller. She advised
the board that they were open
to guidance and suggestions as
a next step and that they were
considering legal council.
Keller's husband Ronnie Keller
spoke on her behalf, saying that
his wife put in her resignation

This resignation was said to have
been several months in advance.
After considering her decision it
was decided that Keller would
pull her resignation and continue
working at the department. The
Kellers claim that they wrote
Winnie Holland an email to do
so receiving no other response
than a return email from Holland
that said, "we will talk about it."
Keller said there was no further
response so she resigned when
the time'came and felt it was the
only choice she was given. The
Kellers consulted legal council
on the matter but decided not
to pursue it, however they are
concerned that the issues are
becoming worse.
Commissioner Ricky 'Jenkins
and Wayne Smith discussed
a recent grant the health
department received that the
county oversees. Both agreed
that they felt the county should
have a say in who is hired and/
or fired.

BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

The State Emergency Response
Team (SERT) continues to
access storm damage caused by
Tropical Storm Debby in Union

of possible scams. County

other Debby-related issues at the

those requests were from Union
County.
A total of fourteen counties
have been designated for
individual assistance to include:
Baker, Bradford,'Clay, Columbia,
Duval, Franklin, Hernando,
Highlands, Nassau, Pasco,
Pinellas, Suwannee, Union and

1.5 percent
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com editor
Union County Property Ap-
praiser Bruce Dukes said the
county's land values dropped an-:
other 1.5 percent this year.
He said the-decrease would
have been more except that Dol-:
lar General built two additional
stores in Union County, one in
Worthingtdn Springs and anoth-
er in Raiford.
The appraiser added that this
year, Florida Department of
Revenue auditors reviewed 180
of the county's parcels to make
sure the county's figures are in
line with their own.
The once-every-two-years re-
view is required under Florida
Statute.
"We have to be within 90 pet-.
cent of the Department of Reve-
nue's values," he said, "or they
will not certify our tax rolls and..
our local governments cannot
collect their revenues." .
Dukes said this year's review.
with state officials was less ac-
rimonious than twb years ago
when he fought them over the
values of homes along Butler:
Lake.
"They wanted to comp the
houses in Lake Butler with wa-
terfront property on Kinglsey
Lake," he said. "You can't corn--
pare the values of houses next to
a mud-bottom lake like ours to a
sand-bottom lake like Kinglsey."
Dukes also said he argued
with state auditors over other lo-
cal-knowledge issues like parcels
that were within flood zones and
commercial property that was in
a petroleum cleanup program.
He said that although he and
Department of Revenue officials
disagreed this year over some
parcels, the differences were not
as sharp nor widespread as in
2010.
"I pointed out a few things to
them," he said," and they point-
ed out a few things to me." -

School board finalizes social media policy


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

The Union County School
Board recently held discussions
on a policy being written for
the school districts faculty and
employees concerning usage and
conduct when utilizing personal
technology and social media.
This policy has been finalized
and released.
The policy was 'put together
by the district's technology chief

The Union County .School
District recognizes the
increasingly important role
that technology plays in .the
educational process as well as
the personal lives of the students,
their families, and the district
employees.
The policy defines Social
Media as a variety of web-
based sources that allow people
to communicate, to 'share


insurance costs and trophy.
Warm-ups and bags will be
optional this year.
Cost 'for football .players is
$150. This will include helmet
rental, pad rental, jersey (with
screen print), socks, pants,
chinstrap and. mouthpiece,
insurance costs, referee costs and
trophy. The Pop Warner will be
offering a payment plan to assist
with costs.
Registration forms can
be found on the website at
leaguelineup/ucpw.com under
2012 printable forms. You may
fill it out in advance and bring it to
registration with you. Each child
will be measured for jerseys,
helmets and uniforms at sign
ups this year, so bring your child
with you. Each child must have
a physical. It MUST be filled
out on the form from website,
has to be dated Jan. 1, 2012 or
later, and must have original
doctor's signature (a copy will
not work). Also, each child must
bring their original 2011/2012
4th nine weeks report card with
completed information, and their
original birth certificate. A copy
will be made of each.
If you still have your helmet
and pads from last year, return
them. The Pop Warner are short
over half of the helmets and pads
that were loaned out last year,
and ask that you return them at
registration.
The first practice will be held
on Aug. 2.

"Do Not Love the World"
1 John 2:15 commands us, "Do not love the world or the things
in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is
not in him." From this verse it is evident we can fall in love
with sin if we are not careful. We must be on guard to make
sure we are not lured to the things of the world by "the lust of
the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" (1 John
2:16). If our love is based on worldly things, those things will
perish (I John 2:17). The way to make sure we abide forever is
by doing God's will (1 John 2:17). Instead of loving sin and the
things of the world we need to love God (Matthew 22:37).
When one'truly decides to love the Lord instead of loving the
world they will keep God's commandments (John 14:15). Do
you love God and keep His commandments or do you love the
world?

Florida's state parks
encompass more than 700,000
acres and span 1,620 miles of
trails. They attract more than
20 million visitors every year,
making Florida's parks and
trails system one of the largest
in the nation. These parks and
trails are indispensable elements
of Florida's natural resources
and provide the state with
educational, economical and
recreational benefits.
Governor Scott proclaimed
July as Park and Recreation
Month. Since 1985, state,
national and local recreation
areas throughout America
have celebrated July with this
designation.
"Florida's state parks have
something for everyone and are
an ideal place to have fun with
family and friends,"' said Florida
Park Service Director Donald
Forgione. "Florida is home
to an abundance of. wildlife,
natural communities and cultural
heritage and our state parks
and trails highlight the best
recreational experiences Florida
has to offer."
Earlier this month, DEP
launched a website highlighting
fun activities to enjoy with


family and friends in state parks.
The "get a little park on ya"'
website offers 50 ways to have
fun .this summer in Florida's
parks, beaches, rivers, springs,
trails, museums, historical sites
and gardens.

Dr. McNamara addressed the
commission and said that she
felt there was increased hostility
and that the hostile working
environment forced out many
good people, and that it was
better to leave than to be fired.
"We have and opportunity to
provide a really good clinic to
help the community with this
funding coming in. I think we
need to focus on keeping the'
commitment that is been forced
out by the top management," said
McNamara.
A suggestion of changing
management to another county
that had less rivalry was offered
as a possible solution by
McNamara. "That's hard for me
to say because I personally like
the managers but the quality of
care is suffering," she said.
Brannen began working at
the health department in 1993


and Trails manages the 110-
mile Marjorie Harris Carr
Cross Florida Greenway, eight
state trails and more. Florida's
award-winning state parks have
inspired residents and visitors

children, expand local economies
and foster community pride.

discussed and felt that she could
address all of the issues to the
board's satisfaction but requested
to do so in writing. Holland sitd
that by doing that, she could list
the number of turnovers, staffing..
patterns, policy requirement,
etc. "As far as services are
concerned, Bradford and Union
counties are my priority. One
doesn't have priority over the
other. Sometimes change is
difficult for people. When you
have to be sure people are doing
things correctly, they take that's
a threat.-I think holding people
accountable is not a bad thing,"
she said. Holland disagreed with
the claims that were made and
said she deemed them inaccurate.
Smith requested to meet
with Holland to look over the
comparison ration of Bradford
employees vs. Union employees
working for the Union County
Health Department. Holland
agreed to meet with, ithe
information requested.
Commissioner Morris Dobbs
said it was obvious that there was
an issue and that meeting with
Smith would be a good idea.
Smith addressed a concern
he had as to the amount of time:
Holland spent in Bradford vs.,
Union. Holland said she would:
be happy to report her time spent
in Union, however Smith said.
that it was not necessary. Smith
requested Holland represent both
counties equally.
Commissioner Jenkins said,
"I'd personally like to see Union
County employees down there."
Smith said he agreed 100 percent.
Smith will meet with Holland
and report back -to the Board to
make a final decision on issues,
if any, that need to be addresses
and/or resolved.

UCHS greats work with large


group at annual football clinic


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Young football players may
not get the opportunity to play
in the NFL as adults, but some
of the almost 200 children who
participated in the second annual
CJ. Spiller-Gerard Warren USA
Football Fundamentals clinic
on July 1-3 got to experience
what it's like to be chased by a
6-4, 300-pound-plus defensive
lineman.
Some of the older children
at the one-day clinic, vhich
was open to ages 7-15, found
they had an extra gear when it
came to maneuvering their way
around cones, thanks to Warren,
an ll-year NFL veteran, giving
chase and yelling, "Someone's
coming after you!"
It was all in good fun, though,
as hometown heroes Warren and
Spiller were joined by several
notable football names to give
children an opportunity to learn
and develop skills. The clinic,


supported by .an NFL Youth
Football Fund grant, was free.
"It always feels good to come
back home and know that you
can give back and contribute in.
a positive way and try to help the
kids," said Warren,a 1997 Union
County High School graduate
who played for the University
of Florida, was the third overall
pick in the 2001 NFL draft and is
currently a member of the New
England Patriots.
Spiller, a 2006 UCHS


graduate who played at Clemson
University, was the ninth overall
pick in the 2010 NFL draft and
a current member of the Buffalo
Bills as a running back, said
he enjoys the chance to give
the children in his hometown
something he didn't have the
chance to experience as a youth.
"As I was growing up, I didn't
have the opportunity where guys
came and put on camps and stuff
like this," Spiller said. "It was
something I always wanted to


do once I got in the situation that
I am.
"I'm glad I'm able to do it."
The two UCHS graduates
have had a tremendous amount
of success in football, as have

SBradford AAU program's goal goes

S beyond the game of basketball
*-*** jr "*'- *a f .'&.-a a?: --.. -. o. y = .- ,;::* --


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
They say it's not whether you
win or lose, but how you play the
game, and a new youth program
in Bradford County -is taking
that saying to heart, applying it
to not just basketball, but to life
as well.
The Runnin' Tigers Youth
AAU Basketball Association
has given boys in the fifth, sixth
and seventh grades this year a
chance to play basketball in a
competitive league. Andre Lee,


Bradord HOSA student Jake Shireman (right) is
pictured with Bradford-Union Area Career Technical
Center teacher Teresa Jackson.

Shireman places 4th at

national HOSA event


Bradford-Union Area Career
Technical Center student Jake,
Shireman placed fourth in his
division at the 35th annual Health
Occupations Students ofAmerica
National Leadership Conference,
which was held June 20-24 at
Disney's Coronado Springs
Resort in Lake Buena Vista.
Shireman, who was
accompanied by health science
teacher Teresa Jackson and her
husband, Bruce, was one of 100-
120 students competing in the
Researched Persuasive Speaking
division. A student from Utah
won the division, while students
from Tennessee and California
placed second and third.
The top three finalists in
each event at each state-level
HOSA conference earned the
right to compete at the national
event. Shireman placed first in
the Florida competition with
his speech "Fat Tax: Fighting
Obesity by Raising the Price of
Fatty and Unhealthy Foods" and.
ie the first Bradford-Union Career
Technical Center student to earn
a win at the state conference and.
place at the national conference.
SThe national conference,which
insistedd of more than 7,100
delegates, judges and guests,
officially began on June 20 with
HOSA delegates receiving their
registration materials, name
badges, conference pfins' and
program books. That evening's
activities began with singing and
dancing along. with DJ Charles
and various Disney characters, A
parade of students carrying state
flags across the stage showcased
each state in attendance.
Narcissus Willis, the Florida
Department of Education's
health science state supervisor,
and Gregory Cotes, Florida
HOSA president, welcomed the
delegates.
The highlight of the evening
was keynote speaker J.R.
Martinez, who is probably best
known'for his winning the 13"
season of "Dancing with the
Stars." In 2003, Martinez was
severely burned over 40 percent
of his body after his Humvee hit
a land mine during active duty in
Karbala, Iraq. His story from a
patient's viewpoint provided an
understanding of the powerful
impact that healthcare workers
can have-on their patients. He
shared a message about how
change and adapting to life's
obstacles can be positive.
Most of the 56 competitive
events were held June 21-22 at
various locations around Disney.
Shireman was scheduled to
'compete on June 21. He gave his
speech to the judges in one of the
three rooms in which this event
was assigned..
The national finalists were
not announced until the
June 23 -awards ceremony.
In the meantime, there were


opportunities to participate with
the different workshops,exhibits
or resort activities that were
provided.
Bradford HOSA members
have experienced tremendous
successes this past year and are
looking forward to continuing
the momentum. The adviser and
student members are grateful
to Bradford-Union Area Career
Technical Center administrators
Christy Reddish and David
Harris for their encouragement
and appreciate those in the
community who donated money
and time in order to provide the
opportunity for the school to
participate.
Shireman, who is currently
enrolled at Southern Arkansas
University after graduating from
Bradford High School, plans to
become a registered nurse.

the Runnin Tigers program
director, said it's the type of
competitive showcase for the
county's talent that didn't exist
before with only recreation-level
basketball available in Bradford
County outside of interscholastic
athletics.
"We're filling a void," Lee
said.
More than that, though, the
program brings members of the
community together to work
toward a common goal of raising
children to become successful in
life.
"We want to get back to a
village raising a child," Lee
said.
The program, which Lee
said came about through God's
vision, consisted of 27 boys this
year. They made up one fifth-
grade team and one seventh-
grade team. (Every player but
one on the older team was a
sixth-grader. However, with
at least one seventh-grader,
the team had. to compete as a
seventh-grade team against other
seventh-grade teams.)
Pedro Carter Sr. served as
head coach, while Glen Carter,
Calvin Lane and Thomas Webb
served as assistant.coaches.
To compete in an AAU-typ'e
program in the past, Bradford
County youth had to travel to
a city like Gainesville. Lee
admitted he doesn't like the
thought of Bradford County
children using their talents to

the season, Lee said. However,
the two teams had not lost a

What the
market will
,bear

Dear Editor:
If this principle were adhered
to, recessions .and depressions
would not occur. We would
maintain a very strong market.
If we allow businesses to exceed
what the market will bear, the
market will decline. As layoffs
occur, markets continue to
decline leading to more layoffs,
leading to more market decline.
A properly designed oversight
committee could detect early
market decline enabling proper
methods to be applied to keep
the market strong. We permitted
corporate officials to draw
multimillion dollar salaries plus.
multimillion dollar bonuses
while the corporations are going
bankrupt. This, coupled with
lack of oversight, has led to the
serious recession we are in now.
We need stronger antitrust
laws and reinstated usery laws
to bring interest down to 10 or
12 percent. This would tend to
keep the market strong. If we
have a strong market someone
will supply it. Proof: we spend
billions of dollars to stop drug
trafficking, but dealers still risk
their lives to supply that market.

Lake residents
give thanks

Dear Editor:
Since' we have lived on
Sampson Lake outside of Starke
for the past 17 years, we have
flooded three times: 1998, 2004
and 2012. Never before have we
received so much assistance as
this year.
We would like to extend our
heartfelt gratitude to the Florida
Baptist Convention Disaster
Relief team who so generously
gave up their homes and their
,valuable time to come to our
assistance. Thankl to Madison
Street Baptist Church for housing
and feeding the wonderful
volunteers. The volunteers were
in our home three days taking
out carpet, cutting wars _up '4
feet high and spraying for mold
and mildew; taking at least 10
large trailer loads of debris to the
dump, and cleaning our home so
it was somewhat in order after
they swept and mopped. They
are a wonderful group from many
areas of Florida but were led by
locals, including Steve Norris,
Gerald Moody and Rick Ward,
who arra~g'ebd their help for us.
Special people they all are and a
real Godsend to us.
We also would like to thank
Randy Alldredge and Andy
Nichols of Sunstate Collision,
Kim Alldredge and Marvin
Keeling, our dear friends,
Chief Terry McCarthy and the
Heilbronn Springs Volunteer
Fire Department, County
Manager Brad Carter, Brian
Johns, emergency management
director, and a heartfelt thanks
to Sheriff Gordon Smith and his
administrative team for getting
the emergency declarations
working and purchasing the
sandbags needed. These folks
laid sandbags, checked on us
daily and helped during the worst
part of the water pumping out of
the house.
During the entire time and
under such dire circumstances,


we still felt blessed each day,
thanks to these wonderful
people, many of whose names
are not included. Although there
is much to be restored, we would
not be anywhere near recovery if
all of these folks had not given
us so much help. A mere thank
you cannot begin to express our
gratitude.

Family in need
after fire
Dear Editor:
This week I have been
told about a family who lost
everything in a fire. They are
moving to the Bradford County
area.
They are looking for a place
to live and their money will be
available on Aug. 1.
They are in need of clothing.
The youngest girl wears an 8 to
10, the oldest daughter wears a
12 to 14, and the single mother
wears approximately a 7 to 10 in
clothing.
If anyone wishes to help this
family, please call Elaine Gouin

Thank you for your help.

NO 'Moore'
excuses
Dear Editor:
I was appalled today to receive
a letter from Beth Moore,
superintendent of schools that
made excuses and blamed the
state for the fact my child's
school grade is a "D" at Brooker
Elementary.
She claims that this is due to
the fact that the state has changed
the -grading scale for FCAT.
However, Union County and
several other adjoining counties
continue to boast "A" schools.
These schools have faced the
same regulations and budget cuts
that Bradford County has over
the last few years.
Why is it that we do not have
one "A" school in the Bradford
SCounty school district? In fact,the
majority of our schools are a "C"
or lower. In Mrs. Moore's letter,
she stated that parents should not
be alarmed. I am sorry, but a "D"
school makes my alarms go off.
I am not only concerned; I find
this unacceptable.
The problem may be with the
unstable nature of our schools.
Why have both of the schools
my children attend (Brooker
Elementary and Bradford High
School) each had three principals
in her 3.5-year term? Bradford
High School has had six different
assistant principals during this


same time frame. Except for
one school, EVERY school in
the district has had a change of
principal or director during her
short term. Believe that Mrs.
Moore is not able to lead a team
of people to besuccessful because
she keeps changing the team and
she cannot give any clear answer
or reason for these shifts.
How can we have success when
our teachers and administrators
are constantly scrambling every
year to re-structure?
I have witnessed first-hand the
struggles these changes and re-
structuring cause fora school. It is
appearing to me that Mrs. Moore
is not able to work on a team
where she has to give power to
*other leaders, such as our school
administrators. As a concerned
parent,'it is time to put someone
in the superintendent's position
that is capable of working on
a team to stabilize our school
system, raise the morale and deal
with the issues at hand.
Then, as a community, we
can be confident that the person
running this school district is
making decisions in the best
interest of our children. We are
tired of "Moore" excuses.

Starke electric
rates not so
unreasonable
anymore

Dear Editor:
An article in the Times- Union
this weekend was troubling
to me. This article was about
communities within 60 miles of
Jacksonville that are shrinking
in population. Starke is leading
the list. Our current population is
5,389, which is 57 less residents
than 15 months ago.
Several factors can be blamed
for this problem, but as a real
estate broker I can attest to one
issue that we can correct. Most
buyers that walk into our office
say they want to look at houses
for sale, but do not bother
showing them anything within
the city limits of Starke. When
asked why, they say it is because
they don't want to pay the high
electrical fees charged by the
city.
It may have been true at one
time the city did add on a fuel-
adjustment charge that had no
,logical explanation. I believe
this has been corrected and the
current charge per kilowatt hour
plus fuel adjustment is within
reason when compared to FPL
and Clay Electric.

Where are
equal rights?
Dear Editor:
Why does a small group of
people in this country have the
right to say what should or should
not be placed on government
land? I though all Americans
had equal rights?
First of all, it should be equal
rights for all. That includes
Christian and other religions. But
leave the monument alone! Also,
if there is no God, what are they
worried about? I will be the fool
because I worship my God.
It is my right to believe or not
to believe in God, as it is theirs to
believe that there is no God.
Our land was founded on "In
God We Trust." That is why so
many men and women have lost
their lives defending the freedom
of worship.
Now a small group wants to
push its belief on us and give us
no choice but its. The ground the
monument is on is my land, too.
I am part of this government,
which has already taken many of
my rights away from freedom 'of
religion.
. If they don't want to look at
the monument, don't look. That
is their right as an American. Just
pass on by. But dbn't take the
beauty I see from the monument
away from me. The monument
can't cause them a problem, if it

think our kids have grown as
individuals "
@hat, to those involved in the
program, is the most important
thing. Lee said being able to play'
basketball is fine, but not every
child is going to grow up to be
a star college player or make it'
to the NBA. Those involved in
the:program want to help those
children talented enough to go
play in college and, perhaps,
beyond, do so, but.their main
go0 is to -prepare them to'be
successful in other career fields
and to be "good human beings,"
Lee said.
A big part of that is an
emphasis on education. As Lee

study and receive one-on-one
help with any issues they were
having in school.
Lee said it was stressed to
players that they were students
first. A goal was set to have a
cumulative GPA of more than
3.0.
"We far exceeded our goal,"
Lee said. "We're happy."
Just as the children filled
the dual roles of students and
athletes, the program coaches
did more than coach. They were
mentors as well, being able to
share their experiences with their
players and, hopefully, influence
them to make good.decisions in
life.
It's one thing to simply tell
children what to do and what not
to do, but it can have more of an
impact if an adult can talk about
the mistakes he or she made in
life and the consequences of
those mistakes, Lee said. He
willingly shared with players
how hb let his studies slide and
became academically ineligible
to play sports as a l0'I-grader.
It may indeed take a village
to raise a child, and the Runnin'
Tigers program volunteers are
happy to serve as mentors and
help children in any way they

can. That's not to negate the role
a child's family plays. In fact, the
program strives to strengthen the
family dynamic, Lee said. Next
year, there will be a'"Strong
Families" campaign, which can
best be described as a family-
building. competition. Families
will earn points for various
activities they participate in
together, from sitting together
at the same table for dinner to
attending one of the Runnin'
Tigers games or practices.
The family that earns the most
points at the end of the campaign,
which will run from January
through June, will receive up to
five tickets to Busch Gardens
Tampa and hotel lodging for two
nights.
"This is to inspire families to


come together," Lee said.
Lee said the program will
expand next year with more
teams. The goal is have 52
players.
Support is vital to keep the
program running.Though money
is important, Lee said what is
really needed is the participation
of more adults. Even if it's


nothing more than setting aside
the time to let a child read to
you, the program can use you.
As Lee put it, the community
has a responsibility to help
raise its children. The Runnin'
Tigers program provides the
means necessary to fulfill that
responsibility.
"We do need money, but we


need more good people," Lee
said.

Deputies:
man shot

neighbor's
dog, arrested

BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor
A Bradford County man was
arrested after he admitted to
shooting his neighbor's dog, ac-
cording to a sheriff's office re-
port.
Charlie Robert Griffis Jr., 42,
of Starke was arrested July 10.
According to a report, on May
29, deputies responded to a call
on Southeast 150'h Street, which
is south of C.R. 230 and east of
Southeast.C.R. 230A (Bethel
Church Road). There they met
with a woman who showed them
her white, American eskimo dog,
which had a bullet hole in its
head.
The woman told deputies that
after she discovered the wounds,
she walked down to Griffis' resi-
dence to confront him, where he
allegedly said, "Yes, I shot your-
dog because it won't stay out of
my trash."
According to the report, the
suspect later told deputies he had
earlier-warned the victim about
her dog getting on his mother's
property, chasing his mother's
cats and getting into their trash.
He added that he was tired of the
neighbor not heeding his warn-
ings and when he again saw the
woman's dog chasing the cats
and getting into his trash, he shot
it in the head with a .22-caliber
rifle. '
Deputy Sherri Mann wrote in
the report that she observed a
bullet hole in the top of the dog's
head and that the bullet appeared
to edit around the ear. She added
that the dog was still alive and
that its owner was taking it to a
veterinarian.
The allegations against Griffis
are not proven and he is pre-
suind innocent until adjudicated
guilty by a court.


Men struggle
over gun, 1
arrested

BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.con Editor
SOne Bradford County man was
arrested after he allegedly pulled
a gun on his girlfriend's father
and the two men struggled over
the firearm.
Tyler Dale Hannah, 21, of
Starke was arrested July 1.1 for
battery and aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon without
intent to kill.
According to a sheriff's office
report,-Hannah told Deputy Trey
McCullough that while he was
on his way to work, his girlfriend
called and told him she had got-
ten into an argument with her
mother. He went to her house
to pick her up and while wait-
ing, spun doughnuts in the fam-
ily's front yard. When the girl's
father came outside to. confront
Hannah about the property dam-
age he had caused, the 21-year


old produced a '.22-caliber rifle
from his truck. The girl's father
told deputies that he grabbed the
firearm and tried to wrest it free
from Hannah, but was unable to
do so.
Hannah told the deputy that
when the girlfriend's father came
out to his truck, he was in fear for
his life. He said he took out the
gun, held it against his chest and
shouted, "Get back."
McCollough wrote in his re-
port that based on the two men's
stories and after noting marks in
the yard and on the father's face,
he arrested Hannah.
The accusations against Han-
nah are not proven and he is pre-
sumed innocent until adjudicated
guilty by a court.

Spiller chats
with Gary-
Nathan Griffis
before a camp
activity. RIGHT:
Gerard Warren
leads a group
of campers
In warm-up
exercises.
Warren, who is
currently with
the New England
Patriots, has
played 11 years
in the NFL after
being drafted
third overall in
2001.


CAMP
Continued from 1B


former University of Florida
football players Cornelius
Ingram, Mike Nattiel and Mike
Peterson-all of whom worked
with children at the July 13
clinic. Like Spiller and Warren,
those three players grew up
in small towns. Ingram, who
is currently with the Denver
Broncos, is a Hawthorne High'
graduate, while Peterson, who
plays for the Atlanta Falcons, is
a Santa Fe High graduate. Nattiel
is the defensive coordinator for
his alma mater- Newberry High
School.
"All of us came from different
communities, and we made it,"
Spiller said.. "That's kind of
what we want to stress to these
guys-no matter where you
grow up, as long as you try hard,
you're doing the right things
and, most importantly, you're
getting your academics, you can
make it in life."
Spiller, Warren and several
Sof the other players talked of
the importance of taking care of
business in school.
"This is where I made my life.
at," Warren told the children,
referencing the field they were
on. "More importantly, it all
started back behind this stadium
in the classroom. You can be
the best athlete in the world, but
you've got to have the grades to
get on the field."
Spiller could speak from
experience, having had to sit out
a season.
"I had to sit out my seventh-
grade year of football because
I tried to be the class clown,"
Spiller told the children. "Sitting
up there in the stands watching
my teammates play-that was
the most hurtful thing I've
probably endured my whole
life.
"After that experience, I
never missed another season of
football."
Spiller said it's important
to focus on education because
football doesn't last forever,
even for those who are fortunate
enough to play professionally.
"One day, we're going to
have to put our cleats up and
have something to fall back on,"
Spiller said. "We're still going to
have 20 to 30 years of our lives
ahead of us to live.
"You can't just have all your
eggs in one basket. "Always
have options you can choose
from."
Multiple players stressed to
the children the bottom line is
hard work. That's what it takes
to succeed in the classroom.
That's what it takes to'succeed
on the field.
Warren said ultimately it's up
Sto each child to make that effort
to do his or her best.
"No matter how bad we want
you all to succeed, be good kids
and get good grades, it's your
choice at the ehd of the day,"

Shamar Highland throws a
pass during a game.


Warren said. "You get out of it
what you put into it.".
Warren led the group of
children in a rousing chant of
that very phrase: "You,,get out
of it vhat you put int6 it." He
seemed to have a good rapport
with the participants and
indicated he could see himself
coaching when his NFL career
was over.
It would prolong his
involvement with the sport
that has meant so much to him.
Warren doesn't take lightly the
fact he has'been able to play as
long as he has.
"I've been fortunate and, more
importantly, blessed," he said.
No matter how much longer he
plays or what he does afterward,

will soon begin

with the Buffalo
'Bills, who
drafted him ninth
overall in the
2010 draft.


one thing Warren wants to
continue doing is hosting the
annual clinic with Spiller.
It's the two players' common
goal-giving back to the
community that means so much
to them.
"Every year, Gerard and I
will sit down and talk about it,"
Spiller said. "Hopefully, it will
get better and better each year."
