Two Ways to Die
Jesis warned some of His day that, "if you do not believe that
I am He, you will die in your sins" (John 8:24). There are many
people who live their lives upon the broad path, die in their sins,
aid end tip in destruction (Matthew 7:13-14). Others, however,
are on the narrow path and will die but live eternally. The Bible
speaks of those who die in the Lord and says, "Blessed are the
dead who. die in the Lord ... that they may rest from their
labors, and their works do follow them" (Revelation 14:13). In
another passage we are told, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is
the death of His saints" (Psalm 116:15). Will you die in your
sins or in the Lord? Since we have all sinned, the only way not
to-die in our sins is to have them washed away in baptism (Atts
22:16) and continue to live a life of faithful service to God (1
John 1:7-9).

BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

The military ball was held
this past Friday at the Hal Y.
Maines Community Center in
Lake Butler. Union County High,
School JROTC (junior reserve.
officer training corps) students
enjoyed catering from. Sonity's
Real Pit Bar-B-Q, a fallen
comrade ceremony performed
by some of the JROTC students,
dancing, and several special
guests to include recently retired
JROTC Instructor Master Sgt.
Gene Black.
When Black entered the
building, a swarm of students
rushed to the door to greet him.
Black began working at UCHS
in 1998. With his help, the
independent JROTC program
at UCHS began. He retired at
the end of the 2012 school year.,
Following Blacks arrival, the
fallen comrade ceremony began.
JROTC student Jessica Hartley
said, "While we are honored
to have so many of you present
tonight, we would be remiss if
we did not pause to remember
those who could not be with us."
The lights were dimmed as a
spotlight illuminated the fallen
comrade table that was placed in
the center of the room. The table
had a white unlit candle in the
center.
"As you entered the banquet
hall this evening you may
have noticed a round table set
for one, in a place of honor,
symbolizing both the price
of freedom and the frailty of
one prisoner alone, against his
oppressors. The tablecloth is
white symbolizing the purity of
their motives when answering
the call of duty. This table is our
way of symbolizing the fact that
members of our profession of
arms are missing from our midst.
They are commonly called fallen
comrades. Some are called POW
or MIA. We call them brothers
and sisters. They are unable to be
with us -this evening and so we
remember them because of their
sacrifice and incarceration," said
Hartley.
A rifle was placed on the table.
"The war of independence was
fought from 1776-1782 by a
volunteer force assembled
from the original 13 colonies.


These brave soldiers, brought us
our independence from Great
Britain. This rifle was recovered
from the hands of one of the first
to die for our freedom in a field
near. Concord;: 'Massachusetts
following tle first armed conflict
between the militia and British
troops. T thousands never came
home," said Hartley.
A chair was placed at the table.
"World Wars I and II were
the most/devastating in human
history. Millions of lives were
lost in defense of :the world's
freedom. This chair represents
the thousands of mothers,fathers,
grandmothers and grandfathers
who waited at home for over
292,000 Americans who would
never return," said Hartley.
A rose was placed on the table.
"Communism from the north
brought war to .the Korean
Peninsula in 1950. The United
States lost 23,300 to gaini
armistice in July 1953. This rose
represents the hopes and dreams
of peace for each soldier who
made the ultimate sacrifice for
the people of South Korea," said
Hartley-
A wine glass, a Bible, a plate
with a lemon slice, and a pinch
of salt were placed on the table.
"57,685 casualties came with
the cease fire following 10 long
years of direct U.S. involvement
in the Vietnam War. The slice of
lemon.on the plate is to remind us
of the bitter fate of those captured
and missing in a foreign land. The
pinch qf salt symbolizes the tears
endured by those missing and
their families who seek answers.
The bible represents the strength
gained through faith to sustain
those lost froni our country,
founded as one nation under god.
The wine glass placed upside
down represents their inability to
share this evening's toast and all
of life's hope and dreanis never
realized by those who were lost,"
said Hartley.
A yellow ribbon was placed on
the table.
"This yellow ribbon represents
the hopes and prayers of the
thousands of families and friends
who waited for the safe return of.
their loved ones from operations
desert shield / desert storm of over
500,000 U.S. service personnel.
The hopes and prayers for 246

Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, otir
brothers, and sisters continue to
make the ultimate sacrifice while
securing freedom for us and our
allies," said Hartley.
The candle was lit.
"The lighting of this candle
serves to remind us of the
ultimate sacrifice our fallen
comrades and their families have
made to preserve the precious
freedom we all cherish today.
As a small tribute, I ask that we
take a moment of silence as an

Support for families. dealing with pediatric cancer


To help families deal with
financial stress caused by battling
pediatric cancer, the Jay Fund
recently introduced a financial
- literacy program that is available.
in Union County.
"Many people are not aware
of the Jay Fund programs and
services that are available to
families in Union County that
Scare for children with cancer,"
said Heather Houston on behalf
of the Jay Fund.
The Jay Fund is a Jacksonville-
based non-profit' organization
founded by former Jacksonville
Jaguar head coach and current
New York Giants head coach
Tom Coughlin. His recently
launched financial literacy tool,
the "Financial game plan,"
takes a foir-step approach to
help families understand and
manage financial challenges that
result from helping a child battle
cancer. '
The Jay Fund assists families
with.. emergency "household.
expenses, funeral costs, gas and
food necessities and hospital/
clinic services as they deal with
-the- emotional and physical
-adversity of childhood cancer.
:-Coughlin launched the Jay-
SFund in honor of former Boston
College safety Jay McGillis, who
battled leukemia.
"Families faced with childhood
cancer are dealing with the
. unthinkable," said Coughlin.
:"In many instances, this stress
is compounded by the financial


strains that families face as a
result of parents missing work
to be there with their children or
medical expenses not covered by
insurance. I am proud that the Jay
Fund now has the ability to help
not only by providing emergency
financial assistance; but also
by providing proven short and
long-term financial strategies
for getting through this difficult
time."
The Financial Game Plan
includes:
Jay's financial playbook,
a backpack with an organizer
to help families manage doctor
appointments, keep important
contact information and track
medical and other-expenses.
Qiarterly financial seminars,
managihig the financial
challenges of childhood cancer.
The seminar gives families
information, insight and support
to manage their finances while
battling pediatric-cancer. -
..*' Financial 'coaching, which
gives individual families the
opportunity tp sit down with a
financial coach and devise a plan
to address financial concerns.
The coach can help families
develop and implement a budget,
understand assets and liabilities
and make difficult decisions to
improve their financial health.
Financial. assistance, the
Jay Fund assists families by
paying for necessities such as
mortgages, rent, car, electric,
water, phone, food and other


household expenses during a
time of crisis.
Jay Fund Executive Director
Keli Coughlin works closely with
the families that the Jay Fund
serves to develop the financial
game plan. Coughlin found that
many times families consumed
by their children's health, were
too overwhelmed to take a real
look at their financial health.
"The Jay Fund realized that
sharing with families best
practices and tips for making
smart financial decisions could
significantly improve their
financial situation and reduce
stress, allowing parents to
concentrate on the wellbeing of
their child," said Keli Coughlin.
As childhood cancer continues
to be the number one disease-
related death among children
under age 19, the Jay Fund is
dedicated to not only expanding
its financial services, but to
also expanding the numbers of
families'it serves'.
To reach more families in
need, the Jay Fund is increasing
awareness by refreshing its
logo and brand. The new logo
incorporates a child wearing
a number 31 jersey. This logo
is symbolic in two ways: the
,child demonstrates the Jay
Fund's services to children and
the number 31 is in memory of
the. number Jay McGillis, the
inspiration for the Jay Fund,
wore on his jersey.
The Jay Fund is also


incorporating new messaging
centering on two words, "be
there."
"Being there is really what
we strive for every day, and I
think the new logo and message
better convey the mission of the
Jay Fund," said Keli Coughlin.
"Financial uncertainty does not
need to be another stress for
moms and dads. Our goal is to be
there for parents, so they can be
there for their families."
Since 1996, the Jay Fund has
provided more than $4 million
in grants to approximately
1,000 families in Northeast
Florida and the New York/New
Jersey metropolitan area facing
pediatric cancer.

In the fourth grade classroom
of Alison Jones, 4-H program
assistant Colan Coody read the
class "Solomon" by Marilyn
. Bishop Shaw.
Solomon is a book that takes
place three years after the Civil
War: Back then there wasn't any
electricity or refrigerators for
that matter.
We have been doing things in
my class that people would have
done back then by experimenting
with different things.
The first thing we made was
sea salt. My teacher got a pot of
water and put Instant Ocean in
it. We dissolved and boiled the
water for about a .day and we
ended up with sea salt, just like
they did back then.
The next project we did was
making beef jerky. Back then
they had to dehydrate meat to
preserve it. We got a dehydrator
and put beef slices on the racks.
We dehydrated them for about
eight hours.
The last experiment we did
was dehydrating fruit. It took
between twelve to sixteen hours
to do.
Doing all of these experiments
was really fun. I 'can't wait to db
more.

Bradford's Cook repeats as state champ


Keystone's Boettcher
is state runner-up
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford High School
girls' weightlifter Samantha
Cook won her second straight
championship, finishing with
a total of 465 pounds in the
unlimited class at the Feb. 9
Florida High School Athletic
Association Finals in Lakeland.
Cook, a senior, cried after
winning last year's title. This
year wasn't any different, except
for the fact she had company.
S"This time, my entire family
cried," Cook said.
S Cook had a 240-pound bench
press and a 225-pound clean and
jerk, which put her total at 15
pounds ahead of second-place
finisher Morgan Boettcher of
Keystone Heights.
Boettcher, who is also a senior
and good friends with Cdok, had
a bench of 235 and a clean and
jerk of.215. It was the second
time she has finished second in
the state after winning a state title
in 2010.
"Honestly, I don't mind being
state runner-up," she said.
What Boettcher was
disappointed in was missing lifts
and not doing more weight than
she did.
Bradford coach Deac Story
said Boettcher and, Cook have
had some "epic battles" over

Cook successfully did 225

'Foxhole'


sweethearts


A picture seen during
wartime brought
George, Gladys
Pierce together
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Nothing about a foxhole during
wartime would seem to conjure
up any kind of romantic notions,
but if not for that bit of dug-out
earth and the man he shared it
with, George Pierce would not be
celebrating his 60th Valentine's
Day as a married man.
George, a former Bradford
County judge, likes to joke with
his wife, Gladys, that he met her
in a foxhole in Korea. She wasn't
actually there, but nonetheless, it
was a case of love at first sight.
It was a cold day, as George
remembered it, and he and his
foxhole buddy, Albert, had been
shot at all day. George insisted
they needed to think of something
other than the war they were
involved in, so he asked Albert
if he had any pictures. Albert
did, and one in particular, caught
George's eye. It was of Albert's
cousin Gladys.
"That was the prettiest girl I
had ever seen," George said.
George said he told Albert if
they got out of the war alive, he
had to meet Gladys.
The two men did, indeed,
make it out alive, flying home
together in March 1952.Albert's
father picked the two men up
at the airport in Chattanooga,
Tenn. Albert told George that
instead of driving to Crandall,
Ga., where Albert lived, they
would first go to Cleveland,
Tenn.,.where Gladys lived.
Gladys said from what
she remembered, it was
approximately 10:30 p.m. when
the men arrived. She had just
gotten home with her mother,
who worked home shows for
Stanley Products.
"I didn't know about him to
begin with," Gladys said.
George said Gladys was just
as pretty in person, but he was
able to take his eyes off of her
to notice one thing-her house
was full. One after another,
doors in the house kept opening
after his arrival, and out of each
walked a child.
Albert told George, "Oh,
I meant to tell you, she's
got seven brothers and three
sisters."
After visiting a while, George
exited the house with Albert to


leave for Georgia. Gladys said
Albert promptly returned and
told her, "George wants to know
if you'd like to go to the movies
with us one night." Gladys told
Albert to tell George if he wanted
her to go to the movies, he could
come right back into the house
and ask her himself.
"I was kind of a bull-headed
little girl-a 20-year old little
girl," Gladys said, laughing.
George did reenter the house
and ask Gladys to go to the
movies. She said she would.
Gladys admitted she was a
little leery of George to begin
with, but said the more she saw
him, the more he grew on her.
"He was always just kind of
fun loving and a pleasure to be
around," she said.
There was no need for Gladys
having to grow on George. He
was smitten, saying it took only
30 minutes after meeting her in
person to decide he wanted to
marry her.
"When I met her up there, I
said, 'Man, this is it.' I had my
-mind made up then," George

BHS girls defeat Mt.

Dora for regional win


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford held visiting Mount
Dora to one field goal in the
-fourth quarter en route to a 38-
30 win in a Class 4A regional
quarterfinal girls' basketball
game on Feb. 7.
The fourth quarter was far
from perfect for the Tornadoes.
They went 3-of-7 from the field
and committed nine turnovers
and were plagued by turnovers
all night.
Mount Dora (12-12), though,
went 1-of-22 from the field in the
final period and didn't get that
one field goal until there were
seven seconds left in the game.
"Overall, we just got it done,"
Bradford head coach Danielle
Smith said.
Mount Dora (12-12) led 19-18
at the half and scored two quick
baskets to open the third quarter.
Shalandrah Manning hit a jump
shot following a backcourt
turnover by Bradford and later

The Hurricanes scored only
six points the remainder of the
game, while Wilisha Griner and
Tracey Kemp combined to score
18 of the Tornadoes' 20 second-
half points.
Smith said her players were
perhaps anxious about playing a
do-or-die playoff game. Bradford
had approximately 30 turnovers,
while the game overall had more
than 50.
"I was not expecting for it to
be this rough," Smith said.
Two baskets by Nyasia Davis

Bradford go into the second

Tigers come up short in district title game


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Baldwin High School's
Heseny Arreguin went 10-for-10
from the foul line and scored 13
points in the fourth quarter as the
second seed Indians defeated top
seed Union County 66-62 in the
District 7-1A boys' basketball
championship on Feb. 9 at
Newberry High School.
The Indians (16-9), who were
16-of-22 overall at the foul line
and made 12-of-14 attempts in
the fourth quarter, will now host
Wildwood in a regional semifinal
game on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 7
p.m.
Union (15-12), which will
travel to play the Villages in
a Feb. 19 semifinal game,
struggled at the line, going 13-
of-25.
"That was the difference in
this ball game tonight," Union
head coach Rufus Jefferson said.
Jefferson was upset at the
officiating in the game, saying
there were "a lot of controversial
calls," but he also said his team
failed to do what it needed to do
to have a say in the end result.
"The referees definitely
determined the outcome,"
Jefferson said, "but if we get
out there and play basketball,
good, fundamental-style defense
and, most important, hit our free
throws, we take the referees out
of the game."
Shaimea Maeweather scored
14 of his team-high 26 points
in the first half, which saw the
Tigers take a 29-27 lead into
halftime. Union did not shoot
well in the half, though, going
10-of-35 from the field, while
also turning the ball over nine
times.
Baldwin put together a 7-0
run to take a 10-4 lead in the

first quarter, but Maeweather
and Princeton Alexander made
back-to-back 3-pointers to even
the score. A 3-pointer by Carl
Alexander put the Tigers up 13-
12, but Baldwin's Jonah Vann
answered with his own basket
from beyond the arc. That was
the start of a 7-2 run to close out
the quarter as the Indians built a
19-15 lead.
Maeweather scored the Tigers'
first nine points of the second
quarter, including going 3-of-3
at the foul line after being fouled
on a 3-point attempt. A jump shot
by Keldric Bradley put the Tigers
up 27-25, while Carl Alexander
rebounded his own miss and
scored to make it a 29-25 game.
A rebound putback by Jordan
Mullis pulled the Indians to
within two going into the break.
The Tigers maintained their
lead throughout the third quarter,
but could never build one larger
than six points. They scored five
of the first seven points of the
quarter, with Bradley making
a free throw and Princeton
Alexander sinking a jump shot.
Alexander then came up with a
steal, which eventually led to a
rebound score by Carl Alexander
and a 34-29 lead.
Union committed three
turnovers and missed a basket in'
transition after that, but led 40-
34 after Carl Alexander scored
off of another offensive board.
Baldwin's Vann, though, sank
a 3-pointer, while Matt Gunter
made two free throws to cut the
Tigers' lead to one going into the

4B TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR B SECTION THURSDAY, FEB. 14, 2013


editor@bctelegraph.com

BC emergency
management
director
repsonds
to citizen's
concerns
Dear editor:
I wish to take a moment to
clarify some of the concerns
expressed by Bradford County
resident Paul McDavid in his
latest letter to the Editor printed
in the Telegraph on Feb. 7, 2013.
Mr. McDavid has on many
occasions written in and
expressed his'displeasure with
certain personnel and aspects
of the emergency services
of Bradford County. In his
latest letter, he specifically
addressed myself and others in
a correspondence that, while
factual in some areas, was
lacking in. specifics that go into
the decision-making process in
an emergency response.
Mr. McDavid questioned me
for making a decision during
a response to a residential fire,
pointing out that several fire
departments were closer than
the Heilbronn Springs Fire
Department that was requested
to assist. He is correct. The fire
departments in Hampton and
Theressa, as well as other fire
departments outside Bradford
County, were indeed closer.
What Mr. McDavid did not
know is there were no Firefighter
1-trained personnel available
at the Hampton Volunteer Fire
Department. However, Theressa
Volunteer Fire Department had
one Firefighter 1-trained member
available who responded POV
(privately owned vehicle)- and
Heilbronn Springs VoluRteer Fire
Department had four Firefighter
1-trained personnel available.
It was not that long ago that
Mr. McDavid complained in a
letter to.the editor that Bradford
County relies too heavily on
mutual aid from other counties
coming into Bradford County,
therefore, placing the tax burden
on another county. Mutual aid
is intended to be ,utilizedonly
when the situation exceds
your own county's capabilities.
This differs from the Automatic
Aid Agreement that Bradford
County has with Clay County in
the Keystone Heightsf/heressa


part of Clay County. While the
Lacrosse Fire Department is its
own entity, they are dispatched
by Alachua County and
coordinate with Alachua County
Fire Rescue.
A request for mutual aid,
which this would be, involves
several steps and time in order
to be accomplished. Tlhe timing
of any request comes into
play. Had I called for Lacrosse
Fire Department, the Bradford
County fire dispatcher would
have had to have made a phone
call to the Alachua County
Communications Center. The
information would then be
taken down and relayed to their
fire dispatcher. That dispatcher
would then reach out to the
on-duty district fire chief, who
would either approve or deny
the request based on availability.
If there is a question, the district
chief could make a call to his
supervisor, the assistant fire
chief of Alachua County. Once
that is approved, and if Lacrosse
Fire Department is not already
committed to a call, they would
then be paged out. This process
can take up to 10 minutes before
there is a response from Alachua
County.
We do not monitor Alachua
County's call load, so we cannot
easily determine if they can
fulfill a mutual aid request. We
do have a mutual aid agreement
with Starke Fire Rescue, and
they assist us often with calls.
Their availability is based on
proximity of 5 miles from thecity
limits of Starke and is dependent
upon what needs may arise
in, their area of coverage. For
example, if they are committed
in Brooker and a structure fire
occurs in downtown Starke, they
cannot leave their committed
assignment. Firefighters from
volunteer stations would have to
cover in their absence.
Bradford County is blessed
with a great group of volunteer
firefighters, who dedicate
their best efforts to the saving
of lives and preservation of
property. The city of Starke Fire
Rescue is the only fire station
in Bradford County with' paid
firefighters on duty 24/7. All
other fire departments must rely
on their volunteer members to
respond day or night. I often
receive compliments from other
organizations, such as Division of
Forestry, other counties' paid fire
rescue and EMS departments as
well as emergency management
departments who praise the
,efforts of our volunteers as one
of the best in the state. I thank
them for their hard work and
dedication to Bradford County.
Should any citizen of Bradford
County have any questions or
concerns, please feel free to stop


by my office. The door is always
open.

Freedom
giving way
to tyranny

Dear editor:
TYRANNY.
Look this up in your Funk
and Wagnalls, and you will have
to conclude that perhaps 'we as
"free" freedom cherishing loving
Americans have had our head up:
our yang yang so long, assuming
that the government of these
United States will preserve and
protect us assuming that those
inside the Washington D.C. belt
are there to protect our interest
'through the instrument given to
us by our forefathers.
Itjust might be too late because
over 51 percent of us have sold
our birth right to the company
store.
Living off of the fat of the land
is defended by those who do this
as a right, and the tyrannical in
Washington D.C. are using this
to augment and perpetuate their
lust for power. It is not just their
efforts to take away our rights
to protect ourselves from such
tyranny, it's the support of the
freeloaders that is being used
by the poorest excuse for an
American president that we have
had in the history of American
presidents. There is no other
definition or a better one than
what we have in the White House
and the Congress.
Well, what can be done, one
might ask. I really don't know,
but I know what I am going to
do.
I AM GOING TO KEEP MY
DOORS LOCKED AND MY
GUNS LOADED.

-The proposal waited, though.
Gladys said they dated for six
finths before she concluded
George would probably ask
her to marry him. The proposal
Came in October 1952.
George, who at that time was
driving from Tyndall Air Force
Base in Panama City, where he
was stationed, to see Gladys,
rinembered proposing, only to
Told that he would have to
ao ask Gladys' parents.
-'I talked to her mother first,"
(orge said. "She didn't ask me
I tt one question. She said, 'Are
yu a Christian?' I could say
yes. I became a Christian when
i was about 9 years old in Live
Qak."
SGeorge had the blessing of
Gladys' mother, but Gladys then
sent him to talk to her father. As
if turned out, Gladys' father had
one question in response to the
idea of marriage as well.
"He said, 'What did her
mother say?' I told him," George
said. "He said, 'That's fine with
Ime.'"
SGeorge was discharged from
service in December 1952. He
a~d Gladys married Jan. 18,
1953. They moved to Florida
as George had taken advantage
df the GI Bill to enroll at the
University of Florida.
S"It was the first time the
University of Florida had
gone over 10,000 students,"
George said. "There were 2,500
veterans from World War II and
the Korean War that began at the
university."
SGladys said she had not met
any of George's family until
after they got-married and drove
t Florida. During the visit with
Q(orge's family, Gladys said
(orge's mother kept talking
abut someone named "Hinton."
CGadys had no idea who Hinton
was. She knew George had a
sister, but thought maybe he
iad a brother he never told her
about.
i "Come to find out, that's what
(George)'s parents and all of his
relatives called him," Gladys
said. Hinton was George's
middle name.
While he went to school,


the couple lived in "ancient"
barracks that had been turned
into apartments, George said.
The rent was $21 per month, he
said, adding, "The kids wouldn't
even live in them today, I'm
sure."
Since George was going to
school, Gladys had to work to
help the couple get by. Her first
job at Wilson's Department
Store didn't last long. As
Christmas approached, Gladys
asked her office manager about
having the day after Christmas
off. Christmas fell on Friday,
and back then, stores didn't
open on Sundays, Gladys said.
Having the Saturday off would
give her and George three days
to travel to Tennessee to be with
her family.
As it so happened, a lot of the
business owners in Gainesville
decided their stores wouldn't
be open on the day after
Christmas since they didn't do
much business beyond people
returning items, Gladys said.
That decision prompted Gladys'
boss to declare that not only
would Wilson's be open the
day after Christmas, but every
employee would be working
that day.
When Gladys' office manager
told her she couldn't have the
day after Christmas off after
all, her response was, "Well, I
know one thing. I'm going to
Tennessee for Christmas. If 1
can't be oftf Saturday, I quit."
George was astonished to hear
that Gladys had quit her job. He
wondered what they were going
to do. She simply said, "I don't
know, but I was looking for (a
job) when I found that one, so I
guess I'll find another one."
She eventually got a job at a
UF engineering research lab,
but would later leave there to
get a job at Eli Witt Cigar and
Candy Company, where she
worked until the couple moved
to Lebanon, Tenn.
George had received his degree
in business administration at UF
and took one semester of law
school there.
"My GI bill ran out," he said.
George finished law school
at Cumberland University in
Lebanon.
"We decided we'd go back to
Tennessee, and we'd be close
to my mom and dad, and they

cruise to Hawaii approximately a year ago.


could help with groceries and
things," Gladys said.
Their home wasn't much
better in Tennessee. Again, they
lived in old barracks, but these
were covered on the outside by
only tar paper.
Gladys worked at a factory
sewing lace on panties before
leaving for a job at Lux Clock.
George pumped gas while going
to school. The couple lived
on less than $300 per month,
Gladys said. George said they
lived at the poverty level during
their first six years of marriage,
but Gladys said it was really
below the poverty level.
So what got them through
those tough times?
"I suppose just loving each
other," Gladys said.
Despite just trying to get by,
the couple could still go out
and have a good time. Gladys
remembered going to the
Gainesville drive-in theater on
Wednesday when the admission
was $1 for a carload. The Pierces
and four other couples would
climb into George's 1950 Ford.
Once there, they could enjoy
a soda for 5 cents and a hot dog
for 10 cents.
"For 25 cents a person, we
could go to the movie and
have a hot dog and a Coke,"
Gladys said. "That was our treat
weekly."

When George graduated from
Cumberland University, the
couple returned to Gainesville,
where George got a job with
a law firm. Gladys went back
to work for Eli Witt Cigar and
Candy Company, but only for
approximately seven months
as she was pregnant with the
couple's first of two children.
"I started working for $50 a
week as a lawyer," George said.
However, with a baby on the
way, George knew he needed
to try to make more money.
An attorney suggested he talk
to Arch Thomas, who was
practicing law in Starke. George

met with Thomas, who was
preparing to run for a Florida
House of Representatives seat.
"It was the fall of 1959,"
George said. "I talked to him,
and he said, 'I'll give you $100
a week and one third of what
we make this year if you want
to come on.' I said, 'When can
I start? Monday?' That was
on a Friday. He said, 'No. Go
back and give them two weeks'
notice."'
George practiced law in
Starke 'for 22 years, and also
served as the city attorney. He
served as Bradford County
judge from 1981 until 1994,
when he retired. He was then
called to serve as a senior judge,
a capacity he served in until
2006.
Looking back on their lives
together, George and Gladys
both expressed their pleasure
with the way things turned out.
It wasn't always easy for the
couple, especially in those first
years of marriage with George
going to school, but George
said, "I wouldn't have changed


anything. We always felt the
good Lord would supply our
needs."
George and Gladys said
they never made huge plans-
on Valentine's Day or their
anniversary. Gladys said going
out to eat and spending time
with family were the main
things, while George added,
"We always had our cards for
each other."
"I guess we haven't really
been too mushy mushy," Gladys
said, with George adding, "I
guess as you get older, you
know you love each other."
They don't ever go to bed at
night, though, without saying, "I
love you," Gladys said.
Over 60 years' time, that
is quite a testament to a
relationship that began in the.
unlikeliest of places-a foxhole
in the Korean War. Pictures say
a thousand words, and that one
picture of Gladys spoke plenty
to George.
"She was pretty, and still is,"
George said. "It has worked out
all these years."

Fins, Fur & Tails 3
By Mickey Agner


decreased over the last 30-50
years, and along'with that trend,
bird hunting has taken a hit in
terms of popularity. Dove and
duck hunting are still around,
but quail hunting has all but
disappeared. Interestingly
enough, the concept and sport
of wing shooting has prospered
over that same period of time.
The necessary growth and
development of regulating
agencies such as the National


Sporting Clay Association
and the Florida Sporting Clay
Association are clear evidence
of it. More evidence of the
interest in wing shooting is
coming to Bradford County in
a big way on Thursday through
Sunday, Feb. 28-Ma'rch 3, with
the Florida Challenge- at the
Bradford Sportsmen's Farm in
Graham.
If you are interested in visiting
the Sportsmen's Farm and


seeing some good shotgunners,
this is your opportunity. In
addition to the competition,
there will be numerous
vendors selling gunsmith
services, electronic ears,
ammo and clothing. Additional
information, including
registration, competition times
and directions, can be obtained
at www.bsfslootingsports. com.
Paul Landry participated in the
Archery Shooter's Association
tournament in Newberry ,on
Feb. 1, and out of nearly 300
competitors', he came in 16th.
Not bad!
Remember the following
dates for your outdoors calendar:


Feb. 16, Florida Bass
Network tournament, Winter
Classic (location and time

Country Club, featuring Lamar
Williams for turkey hunting/
calls;

Feb. 25, full moon;

Warm weather

reports,

Paul Landry

and more

Gary Simpson, in his weekly
Gainesville Sun column,
summarized the winter fish bite
this year by saying, "Things are
a changingg" When questioned
by phone about his point, he
indicated the remark was in
reference to a change in the
speckled trout bite on the west
coast and the crappie bite locally.
In further detail, he specified
trout liked to stay on the grassy
flats as soon as the water cools
off in the early fall, but they
would leave when the water got
colder with winter.
.Later in the early, spring,
they will return when the water
warms slightly, he said.
"This year, they never left the
flats," Simpson said.
Regarding the crappie
bite, he stated they usually
spawn in. February in the lakes
near Gainesville, but this
year they had roe in them by
Christmas. Simpson did add
that he thought the bass were
running more consistently" with
previous years.
The big question local to
Bradford, Union and Clay
counties is -what are the crappie
on Kingsley Lake going to
do, or what'have they already
-done? Jimmy Prevatt wonders
if tHey have not already bedded.
Townsend Strickland is in hoped
that they had moved in shallow
at the end of January. Kingsley
SLake has always marched to a
! different drummer regarding
fish. cycles, so this story will
have to play out over the next
month or two before it ends.
Interestingly, fishermen are
not the only ones perplexed by
the weather. Palatka will have
its Azalea Festival oh Saturday
and Sunday, March 2-3, and the
odds indicate the blooms >yill all
be gone' by that date. One thing
we are being told consistently by '
the weathermen is that the bugs
will be worse this summer as a
result of the mild weather.
The Lake Butler Bass Club
held its February tournament on
Feb. 2 at Sampson Lake. Dean
Elixson and Cody Douglas took
first place with a total of 16.755
pounds. Johnny Key captured
second place with a total weight
of 16.18 pounds. Cody Douglas
indicated the majority was taken
on plastic swim baits.
The Florida Bass Network
held its first February tournament
at Little Santa Fe on Feb. 2. John
Mobley and Randy Drovin took
first place with a total of 15.39
pounds for their top five bass.
The same team took the big fish
trophy at 5.45 pounds. Nick
Thlizeros and Jordan Snyder
took second place with a top-
five total of 11.46 pounds.
