BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
County commissioners trom
Bradford, Baker and Union
counties are very happy with the
performance of the director and
assistant director at the New Riv-
er Regional Landfill, so much so
that the pair was given a sponta-
neous raise during a recent meet-
ing.
This was not a regular meet-
ing but rather a specially called
meeting Feb. 5 during which a
total of $900,000 was transferred
to the members who make up the
association-$300,000 for each
county. This is over and above
the annual dividends each county
already earns from landfill oper-
ations.
Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal said he recently dis-
cussed county budget difficulties
with one of the commissioners
from tri-county board and the
resulting depletion of county
reserves. Pointing to the solid
waste association's recent audit


and its profitable peiiormance,
O'Neal talked about transfer of
revenue to help the counties out.
He said the association has
been blessed for the last'14 years
to be able to purchase equipment,
perform construction, take care
of environmental and engineer-
ing requirements, and perform
special projects, and do it all with
cash raised by operations.
"To make a withdrawal now
is probably the best time you can
do it," O'Neal said, discussing
future obligations-including
major infrastructure projects-
that will cost close to $20 million
and begin in approximately sev-
en years.
Only five years remain before
the expiration of the Alachua
County contract, which brings
in the majority of the landfill's
revenue. The most difficult part
of planning is not knowing what
Alachua is going to do, O'Neal
said.
"If they decide to do some-
thing else, then our disposal rates


are going to have to go up," he
said.
But Union County Commis-
sioner Wayne Smith said the
revenue transfer being requested
would have no imrfediate im-
pact on the landfill, and that was
cleared with the association's
attorney. While the. negotiations
with .Alachua County-such as
they are-drag on, New River
is collecting an additional $2.35
per ton, and that money is going
into escrow for future closure
costs. If the contract were rene-
gotiated, the landfill would be
able to maintain its disposal rates
longer; but that surcharge would
go away.
"With the audit presented, the
way I took it, now is the best time
to ask for the $300,000," Smith
said, moving for the association
to transfer that amount to each of
its. members. The second came
from Bradford County's Doyle
Thomas, who said that in a little

Gators in multiple capacities,
including recruiting and assisting

University of Florida College
of Law-. After graduation from
law school, he commenced his
employment with the Office of

Union County. He continued to
wbrk in that capacity for 16 years

Is the Pope the Head of the Church?
Over the last, couple pfweeks a lot of attention in the news has
been paid to'the'resignation of the popeJ ppe is viewed by
many as the earthly head of the church but does the-Bible
endorse such a view? In Ephesians 1:20-23 Paul speaks of the
power of God that raised Christ from the dead, seated Him at
God's right hand, and "gave Him to be head over all things to,
the church." If Christ is head over all things to the Church and
if He has been given all- authority in heaven and on earth
(Matthew 28:18), there is no place for a human head of thl
church on earth. Instead of being a part of a church within a
human head we need to find the church of which Christ is the
head. To find the church of which Jesus is the head, we must-
look for the church that submits to Him in everything they 'do
(Ephesians 5:24).

Harmony Church Centennial BAYER
_Continued from 1A


Harmony Free Will Baptist
Church is celebrating their
100th anniversary with services
of celebration and praise on
Sunday, Feb. 24, at 10:30 afkd
11:30 a.m.
Former pastors Rev. Larry
Powell (1963-1966) and Rev.
Milton Worthington ,(1959-
1960) will be the guest speakers
for the day.
Harmony Church was born
in the heart and mind of the
late J. S. Howard. He moved to
Florida from the Glennville, GA.
area where he was a member
of Ebenezer Free Will Baptist
Church. Howard established
his home, a turpentine business,
and a commissary in the Dukes
community of Union County. By
late 1912 a small congregation
began conducting meetings in his
Dukes commissary.
The church's official
organization was on today's
date, February 21, in 1913.
Eighteen charter members are
listed in the early record. They
were J. S. and Lola Brown, J.
S. and Ethel Howard, C. H. and
Nishie Harrison, Eva Harrison,
J. S. and Mary Pinkston, H.
G. and Lenora Crawford, A.
C. and Lola Crawford, C. A.
Crawford, Foster and Rachel
Glover, Em Pinkston, and J. M:
Markham. Present individuals
worshipping at Harmony Church
include fifth and sixth generation
representatives of charter and
early member families. '
The following officers were
elected in that organizational
meeting: J. S. Brown, Clerk, J. S.
Pinkston,Treasurer, J. S. Howard
and C. H. Harrison, Deacons, and
H. G. Crawford and J. S. Brown,
Trustees. After the election
of officers the members -voted
to name the church Harmony.
Rev. E. L. St. Claire was then
elected Pastor. Services were
held on the third Sunday of each
month. Their meeting place was
moved to the Miller Community
schoolhouse.
By late 1913, funds had been
raised, land purchased, and
a frame building constructed
near the Miller community
crossroads, which became the
church's home. This building,
which stood just south of the
present sanctuary, was used by
the congregation until 1969.
Construction projects over the
years include: Parsonage (1948),
Education Building (1955), New
Sanctuary (1969), Fellowship
Hall (1974), and the Family Life
Center (1996).
Harmony is among the oldest
Free Will Baptist Churches in
Florida. Some congregations
located on the Florida panhandle
date back to the 1800's. Harmony
is believed to be the oldest from


Union County south on Florida's
peninsula.
Twenty-six pastors have served
Harmony Church through the
years. Many began their pastoral
ministries at Harmony. Several
Harmony pastors went on to fill
distinctive rolls in the greater
Free Will Baptist Denomination.
Rev. E. L. St. Claire, founding
pastor (1912-1914), served
as National Evangelist for the
Eastern General Conference
of Free Will Baptists. He is
known to have helped organize
eleven churches in southeast'
Georgia. Rev. I. J. Blackwelder
(1929-1930) was elected the first
Secretary Treasurer of what is
now known as Free Will Baptists
International Missions. Rev. L.
C. Johnson (1942-1943) resigned
the church to become the
founding president of Free Will
Baptist Bible College, Nashville,
TN. Now named Welch
-College, this institution is the
denomination's flagship college.
Rev. J. O. Fort served the church
three separate times (1936-1941,
1948-1954, and 1960-1961).
He served the denomination
as an early 'riter and editor
of Sunday School Curriculum.
Rev. Milton Worthington (1959-
1960) is well known and used as
a conference speaker throughout
the denomination. Rev. Larry
Powell (1963-1966) presently
serves as director of Free
Will Baptists National Home
Missions.
Two Harmony pastors were
born and raised in Union County.
Rev. I. J. Blackwelder grew up
in the New Zion community
of northwest Union County.
He came to Harmony, and
Free Will Baptists, through his
wife, Etta Crawford, a sister to
charter member H. G. Crawford.'
Blackwelder Free Will Baptist
Church, Worthington Springs, is
so named in his memory. Present
pastor Larry Clyatt was raised in
and answered the call to ministry,
through Harmony Chtrch. He
said, "It is a great honor to serve
the church in which you were
raised. My only desire is to be
faithful to God, and further the
Harmony heritage."
Harmony. Church presently
maintains a full program of
ministries. These include
Sunday school, worship and
preaching services, choir
activities, women's group, and
Kingdom Quest youth ministry.
Harmony has a great history, but
stands ready to minister into the
future.
Present Pastor Larry Clyatt
invites former members,
family and friends to attend. A
fellowship meal follows the
services.

LANDFILL
Continued from 1A
more than two years, the Alachua
County surcharge would replace
the money.
"All three counties, like Mr.
Smith said, we could use that.
money, and all three counties are
in this together," Thomas said.
Smith also said if funds be-
"come available, then each county
could pay.the landfill back.
Union County Commission-
er Morris Dobbs said it was the
good management at the landfill
and its board that are responsible
for its profitability.
"We're agreeing on helping
our people. That's what it's all
about," Dobbs said.
Baker County's Mark Hartley
said it was these three counties
that took thie risk and they should
be able to enjoy the reward.
With a unanimous vote in
favor of the revenue transfer,
Smith turned to something that
was not on the agenda-a raise
for O'Neal and Assistant Direc-
tor Perry Kent.
O'Neal and Kent were offered
a 5 percent raise along with the
rest of the landfill employees
when the budget for 2013 was
prepared, but declined to accept
the full amount. Smith moved to
give the pair the additional 2 per-
cent now, and Thomas gave his
second. The raise was approved
unanimously.
While the board declared the
non-agenda item an emergency,
O'Neal issued a memo following
the meeting, saying he disagreed
with the board and its attorney
that the vote actually constituted
an emergency. He backed his be-
lief by citing Florida law on spe-
cially called meetings and emer-
gency action.
"I do not believe the above
statutes make the actions of the
board to approve raises at today's
meeting to be appropriate or le-
gal. Therefore, please be advised
that pay increases for Perry Kent
and myself should not occur un-
til further legal consultation has
taken place and additional ac-
tion of the board at a regularly
scheduled meeting approves the
action," O'Neal wrote.

Gun
Continued from 1A

against guns in patients' homes,
Iut the law must'then list excep-
tins to say that it is alright to
alk questions about the presence
of. guns if the immediate medical
care or safety of a patient or of
emergency responders might be
jeopardized.
Add to those complexities the
fact that some gun owners and
others feel the systems don't
work as well in reality as they
do in theory, like the background
checks critics say are inadequate,
largely due to the absence of
mental health information on gun
buyers.
Others claim the computer sys-
tems and the databases used to
conduct background checks.are
not exact sciences. One Keystone
Heights hunter and gun own-
er, who asked not to be named,
said he has purchased various
guns over the years and, during
the background check has been
rejected by the either the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
or the FBI on some occasions,
but cleared to purchase a gun
on others. Once, he said, he was
rejected and then cleared on the
same day. He doesn't know what
the problem is but expects it to
continue in the future.
Some municipalities across the
nation have created gun laws for
their cities. However, in 2011,
the Florida State Legislature de-
clared that all county and munic-
ipal restrictions on guns are now
illegal.
Perhaps the legislature was
trying to avoid even further ex-
pansion of gun law confusion
from one Florida town to the
next, or it may have meant to
protect unsuspecting municipali-
ties from enacting gun bans that
violated federal or state laws.
In 1977, for example, the
Keystone Heights City Council
passed a law banning concealed
weapons inside' the city limits,
including knives, dirks and oth-
er items, but excluding pocket-
knives. After FS 790.33 in 2011,
the city was obliged to exempt
firearms from its concealed
weapons ban, but has retained
the ban on other weapons, such
as daggers and stun guns.
'Since the state law spells out
where gun owners can and can-
not fire their weapons, it's not
enti'ely!elear,,wthether- a second
Keystone Heights law is valid or
necessary-a city ordinance that
bans firing weapons inside the
city limits.

Federal laws
Because of the wide array of
gun laws, a newspaper article
cannot cover all details of Feder-
al and Florida gun laws, but here
are some of the basics that may
be useful to local readers.
By constitutional appointment,
the Federal government regu-
lates commercial transactions
across 'the nation. That applies to
products like bread and automo-
biles, as well as guns. Govern-
ment oversight controls the flow
of firearms-to the extent possi-


A(VM&wiW ..N
^ l|||| i


ble-into and out of the country
,and between states.
Gun'i'd pawnshops are li-
censed by'the Federal Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms aid
Explosives. The Federal Fire-
.arms Reference Guide of 2005
is 242 pages of laws and guide-
lines, with more than 35 pages of
definitions alone. These spell out
the government's use of terms
from "honorable discharge" to
"muffler for a firearm.''
Those wanting to conduct re-
tail or wholesale commerce in
firearms must choose among
nine types of Federal licenses
corresponding to their activity.
Some of those licenses deal
.exclusively with guns and their
ammunition, including armor-
piercing bullets. Other licenses
are for*dealers, pawnbrokers and
collectors. There is a license for
manufacturing and importing
"non-destructive devices," such
as grenades and bombs. Four
licenses are for manufacturing,
importing and selling guns, with
guidelines on when and how
firearms and'related items can be
shipped through the mail.
Each license category has
its own set of rules and regula-
tions and licensees are expected
to abide by them. The FBI and
BATF are expected to enforce
the federal laws, but many tlues-
tion their effectiveness when vi-
olations and the permutations of
trade are so numerous.
The licenses also explain orga-
nizations like BATF and include
penalties for violating federal
firearms laws.
Violation of a federal law be-
comes BATF's or the FBI's re-
sponsibility by definition. Many
feel that those agencies' enforce-
ment is open to question.
Recently a number of rural
sheriffs said they would not en-
force President Barack Obama's
proposed gun-related executive
orders, even though they aren't
expected to enforce them in the
first place; that's the federal gov-
ernment's job. ,

Buying a gun in Florida
Florida does not require a li-
cense, a permit or registration to
purchase, own or transport rifles;
shotguns and other long guns.
Neither does the federal govern-
ment. However, based on federal
and Florida law, everyone pur-
chasing a rifle, shotgun or hand-
gun is' subjectt' t' 'tn "instant"
background ihec' "
Gun dealers are required to
Notify tHe Department of Ag-
riculture, which controls gun
commerce in Florida, and an FBI
and FDLE background check us-
ing state and federal databanks
is required. Handgun shoppers
without a concealed weapons
permit already in hand must have
a three-day "cooling-off' period.
State and federal records are
combed because, while'state in-
formation reveals felonies, they
might not indicate a prospective
gun buyer's ties to foreign or
domestic terrorism or military
records, for example.
However, one Web site on
gun laws maintains that licensed
dealers, those already holding

a concealed weapons permit,
members of law enforcement,
or corrections and security per-
sonnel among others' are exempt
from this background check.
One Keystone Heights gun
dealer, who asked not to be
named, said this is incorrect.
In fact, he said, not only are all
customers given a background
check, including law enforce-
ment and corrections employees,
they are given a check with every
gun purchase, even if they are
trading in one legal gun for an-
other. They are given two back-
ground checks if they come to
the same shop on the same day to
buy two different guns, he'added.
It is left up to the applicant to
state on an ATF form at time of
purchase whether he or she has h
history of mental problems; drug.
addiction, alcoholism or is a va-
grant.
Florida laws emphasize en-
hanced punishment for crimes
with guns more so than deter-
rence before a crime is commit-
.ted. The state has enhancements
'for any mitrder, rape, aggravated
assault, burglary, robbery, or any
other crimes committed with a
firearm. The penalty is increased
even further if a machine gun
or a semiautomatic firearm with
magazine capacity of more than
20 centerfire cartridges is used.
Just as pro-gun advocates say
more gun laws don't prevent
crimes, gun law advocates point
out neither does only emphasiz-
ing enhanced punishments after
a gun-related crime has already
been committed. Felons who
commit crimes with guns may
not be aware of enhancement
laws or clearly do not care, gun
law advocates say.
Keystone Gun and Pawn own-
er Sam Abrahamson said that
even if a potential customer
meets Federal requirements, gun
dealers may use their own discre-
tion as to whether they will sell
to a customer. On the other hand,
Florida's Department of Agri-
culture must authorize to carry a
concealed weapon, sight unseen,
anyone who meets the criteria
and satisfies the background
check's bundle of stipulations.
Excluding weekends and le-
gal holidays, there is a three-day
waiting period to purchase a
handgun from a retail establish-
ment, unless you already have
a concealed carry permit. With
concealed carry permit in hand,
you can carry a handgun away


with you when you leave the
shop.

Displaying and trans-
porting guns'openly
SFlorida law also spells out who
may openly display a gun and
when they may do so. Those who
may display guns include people
with firearms at their home or
place of business.
However, while you have a
right to hang firearms on the
mantle, you may be held respon-
sible If someone breaks into your
home and steals any weapon in-
adequately stored, if not. by law
then by civil suit.
Members of organized target,
skeet, trapshooting or antique
and gun collecting clubs may
publicly display guns while at or
going to or from shooting prac-
tice, meetings or exhibitions.
Sportsmen, engaged in or going
to or from fishing, camping or
hunting may also openly display
guns.
Others manufacturing, repair-
ing or dealing in firearms may
openly display, along with mil-
itary, law enforcement person-
nel, private guards, corrections
employees and others while em-
ployed.
At Keystone Gun and Pawn,
Abrahamson said he hadn't seen
a gun displayed in a pickup truck
gun rack for years. Guns prom-
inently displayed in gun racks
while in transit are not against
the law in Florida, but most gun
owners realize that their proper-
ty is endangered, not to mention
public safety, with guns brazenly
in view. Many of the firearms in
Florida's illegal gun pipeline are
stolen from Florida homes and
vehicles.
Pimentel said, "Florida Stat-
utes Section 790.251 sets forth
the carry of firearms in vehicles
in general. FS section 790.01
addresses carrying of concealed
weapons. A gun on a rack is
not being carried concealed. FS
section 790.053 addresses open
carrying of weapons. A gun in
a rack is not being carried on or
about the person."
These days, most states, in-
cluding Florida, require a gun to
be secured while in transport or
in your vehicle. Lt. Williams sug-
gests a glove compartment, the
trunk of the vehicle or a locked
box. The law does not include
the widely believed "two-step"
n "thre c-ten" nrnnoc hefArP


you can make your gun operable.
Gun owners traveling by pub-
lic transportation should see.that
their open carry weapon is un-,
loaded and in a securely locked
cased.

Toy guns
Even toy guns have restric-
tions to keep kids from picking
up what they think is a plaything,
but isn't; or to deter thrill-seek-
ing teens from pointing a toy gun
only to get shot by real officers
with real bullets in real guns.
(Which happened in. Florida in
2006.)
Upder federal gun law, you
must be 18 years of age to buy an
airsoft gun. The packaging must
tell consumers that criminal mis-
use of toys will result in charges.
One north Florida deputy
(who asked that his name and
county not be used) said recent-
ly there was an incident where a
small child brought a toy gun to
class. The gun was a replica of a
type of gun the deputy happened
to own. Placed on a desk, he said,
the two guns were identical.

Concealed weapons
By now, there are more than 1
million concealed carry licensees
in Florida. Approximately one
out of every 16 people' you meet
in the state may at any moment
be legally carrying a concealed
weapon.
It is unlawful to carry on or
about your person any con-
cealed firearm without a permit.
The state's concealed weapons
program is administered by the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services. The
Florida concealed weapons per-
mit applies to other weapons as
well, including electronic weap-
ons such as Tasers, tear gas guns,
knives and billy clubs, all of
which can be carried concealed
with a-permit.
Personal protection sprays of
two ounces or less are allowed
without a permit.
However, the license that is
issued permitting you to carry a
concealed weapon does not nec-
essarily guarantee the right to use
it in all'circumstances. It is a mis-
demeanor to use the concealed
weapon for any purpose other
than self-defense.
That is, a little maturity is-in
order:' no fooling around and no
showing off for your buddies


with your permitted concealed-
weapon.
Under Florida law, there is no
"duty, to retreat" 'if-you are at-
tacked inany place that you have
a lawful right to be in. Instead,
you may stand your ground and
meet force with force, including
deadly force if you "reasonably
believe" it is necessary to pre-
vent death or great bodily harm
to yourself or others.
Although the law does not
specify areas where concealed
weapons are allowed, it does
spell out where they cannot be
carried. CCSO's Pimentelsaid
FS 790.06(12)(a) lists 15 re-
strictions on places where a con-
cealed weapons permit holder is
not authorized to carry a firearm.
"That statute does not ad-
dress trains or buses," he notes.,
"790.25(3)(1) addresses a firearm,
being carried on public transpor-
tation. A person without a permit.
would have to have the firearm
securely, encased and not. in tie '
person's manual possession."
A number of states have no
reciprocal concealed gui law
agreement with Florida, includ-
ing California, Hawaii, Illinois,
New York, New Jersey, Mary-
land, Maine, Massachusetts,
Rhode Island, Connecticut, Ne-
vada, Oregon, Wisconsin and
Minnesota.
Anyrperson found with con-
cealed weapons in the prohibited
areas, and who is not otherwise
exempted may be charged withlf:'a
second-degree misdemeanor. .
Senate Bill 954, signed by':
Gov. Jeb Bush in 1999, allowed .
residents from other states who
have valid concealed weapons
licenses from their states to carry,, .
concealed weapons in Florida as
long as they are 21 or older. They-
must be coming from states that,,
recognize Florida's concealed
weapons licenses.
In 2008, SB 948 stipulated that
for a person to be granted a con- -
cealed weapon permit, he or she
must be resident of the United
States and must either be a U;S.
citizen or a permanent resident
alien. The bill also increased the
number of years for validity 'of
the concealed weapon license-
from five to seven years.

The North Florida Honor Band
takes some'of the best musicians
from counties in North Florida
and combines them into one
spectacular, music-making
super group. To be a part of this,
students underwent a vigorous
audition process where they had
to play a prepared piece and show
off their technical abilities with
scales. Out of the auditioning
middle school students and high
school students, two bands were
created, a 62-piece middle school
band and a 66-piece high school
band.
Not only did these students
get a chance to play great
music, they got to broaden their
horizons and do so with many
students from different parts of
North Florida. Students came
from seven schools in five
different counties to include
Baker, Bradford, Columbia,
Gilchrist, and Union. Students
had the privilege of working
with Don Reynolds, adjunct
professor of Brass Studies at
Jacksonville University and
Jeanie Berry,.Director of Bands
at Hunter's Creek Middle School


in Orlando. They endured a
strenuous rehearsal schedule
over the period of less than a
week, which consisted of only
Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
to prepare for the full concert that
Friday night.
It wasanightinwhichall school
rivalries were left at the door and
students became one team to
produce impressive sounds that
amazed a packed audience. The
area band directors were given a
special thank you for all of their
hard work to include Ed Amaya,
David Chandler, Kelly Dorsey,
Chris Dunn, Matt Jernigan,
Sherod- Keen, Anna Malhiout,
Dirk Schmidt, Ryan Schulz,
Cody Tempest and Michael
Warren for teaching the students
life-long skills.

2013 'Through with Chew' week


Tobacco products like
chew, dip and snuff are not
harmless. But because they're
smokeless, youth and adults
may underestimate the serious
health risks associated with
these tobacco products. In fact,
while cigarette use continues
to decline, smokeless tobacco
use has remained steady among
Union County's youth for more
than a decade.
"Through with Chew week"
Feb. 17-23, is an educational
campaign to decrease smokeless
tobacco use, also known as dip,
cldw, snuff, spit or chewing
tobacco, and increase awareness
of the negative health effects of
using these products specifically
among young people.
This special week includes
"The Great American Spit Out"
that will be.held today, Feb. 21,


which encourages smokeless
tobacco users to plan in advance
to quit using that day, or to make
a plan to quit.
According to a survey released
by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC),
smokeless tobacco use has been
associated with oral cancers and
poor dental health.
Research finds that smokeless
tobacco is also strongly
associated with leukoplakia,
which is a precancerous lesion
of the soft tissue in the mouth
that consists of a white patch or
plaque that cannot be scraped
off. The sugar in the smokeless
tobacco that helps keep users
addicted may cause decay in
exposed tooth roots. Smokeless
tobacco is also associated with
recession of the gums and gum
disease. The smokeless tobacco


acts as sandpaper and causes
your gum to pull away from
the teeth in the place where the
tobacco is held. The gums do not
grow back..
In 2009, about 3.5 percent
of all adults' ages 18 years or
older living.in the United States
were currently' using smokeless
tobacco, with, the highest
percentage among American
Indian/Alaska Native and white
males. Smokeless tobacco
contains 28 carcinogens and is
known to 'increase the risk of
developing cancer of the oral
cavity.
Aside from the increased
risk of cancer, using smokeless
tobacco can increase the risk
of heart attack and stroke. Like
cigarettes, smokeless tobacco
products contain nicotine, a
highly addictive and dangerous


chemical. Smokeless tobacco
users and cigarette smokers have
comparable levels of nicotine
in the blood, according to the
National Cancer Institute.
"Smokeless tobacco is not
a safe alternative to smoking
and the rate at which youth'
continue to use these products
is alarming," said State Surgeon
General and Secretary of Health
Dr. John Armstrong. "Many
of these young people may be
substituting cigarettes with
smokeless tobacco in places
where they can't smoke, leading
to a stronger nicotine addiction
that makes it harder for them to
quit."
Constant exposure to tobacco
juices from these smokeless
products can cause oral cancers,
which can cause cancer of the
esophagus, pharynx, larynx,
stomach and pancreas.
Smokeless tobacco use can
increase the risk of oral cancers
by 80 percent and according to


the CDC; oral cancer is the sixth-
leading cancer in men, with
30,000 cases per year. Almost
75 percent of people diagnosed
with oral and pharyngeal cancer
use tobacco. About one person
dies every hour from the disease.
Oral cancer is one of the most
difficult cancers to diagnose,
treat and cure. Only half of those
diagnosed survive longer than
five years. Users of smokeless
tobacco are exposed to higher
amounts of tobacco-specific
nitrosamines- molecules that are
known to be carcinogenic than
smokers.
For example, Rick Bender,
a former professional baseball
player, known to some as the man
without a face began using spit
tobacco at the age of 12. Bender
was later diagnosed with cancer
at the age of 26 because of this
spit tobacco use and tuyderwent
four major surgeries to remove
the cancer. Bender lost one third
of his tongue, half of his jaw and


25 percent use of his right arm.
Bender said, "I have devoted
my life to educating others about
this tobacco product that is widely
thought of as a safe alternative
to smoking." For stories, lke
Bender's, it is important to draw
awareness to the negative effects
of smokeless tobacco use and
support the efforts that champion
"Through With Chew Week" all
across the country.

Brooker grandmother passing on passion of karate


BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor

*After raising four children
and putting in 30 years as a state
employeee, Brooker resident Pat
Caren decided to teach karate.
She does it every Tuesday and
Friday in Stump Hall at First
Presbyterian 'Church of Starke,
from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and
no one is turned away-it's free,
and it's open to all ages.
Caren's interest in karate
was initially fueled by her
children. When her eldest son
was sucker-punched following
a local football game, she
enrolled him in the karate school,
which at that time held classes
at the old armory building on
Temple Avenue, across from the
Bradford High School. Later,
when her second son and eldest
daughter encountered similar
incidents, Karate came to the
rescue. Because'her kids weren't
old enough to drive, Caren drove
them to the armory and sat
through the classes three nights
each week.
"I decided if I was going to
be there three nights a week,
I :wasn't just, going to sit and


watch," says Caren. So she
enrolled and hasn't stopped,
ascending to the second degree
of black belt.
Caren says she appreciates the
individual nature of the sport,
because she's not into team
sports.
"You compete against
yourself," she said. "You
don't have to prove yourself to
others. There's lots of personal
satisfaction in it."
Caren says she also finds
it beneficial in managing her
fibromyalgia because it requires
lots of large muscle movement,
which is good for the body.
Karate is a martial art
developed in the Ryukyu
Islands in what is now Okinawa,
Japan. It is a striking art using
punching, kicking, knee strikes,
elbow strikes and open-hand
techniques. It became popular
in the U.S. following World War
II when members of the military
learned it in Okinawa or Japan,
and then opened schools in the
U.S.
Caren practices the Tang
Soo Do style of karate, which
originated in Korea. The school
she now teaches was started as
Pak's Karate in the 1970s in


the Jacksonville area. Master
Richard Rosenbeck came to
Starke to teach, and there were:
schools in Macclenny and
Keystone Heights also.
When the economy started
going down and the commute
became financially untenable for
Rosenbeck, he turned the school
over to Caren. Eventually,
several of her students who were
members of First Presbyterian
Church of Starke suggested they
move the school there. Because
the church allows the school to
use its facilities without charge,
Caren decided to offer classes
for free.
"Students are expected to
buy their dobok or uniform and
pay for testing," says Caren,
noting that Rosenbeck returns to
administer tests and participate
in ceremonies when new belts
are awarded.
The school has six regular
students now, with Caren's
daughter Carrie Zubillaga
holding the highest rank at
brown belt. Zubillaga has been
blind since the age of 2, and
teaching her presented unique
challenges they have negotiated
with flying colors.
A typical class begins with

Presbyterian Church of Starke.


stretching, then progresses to
the forms. There is one form
for each level, with mastery
of 10 required to attain black
belt. After review of forms,
Caren pairs the students up for
sparring-one person attacks,
and the other responds. Next
come kicks, basic movements,
simplified blocks and free
sparring.
Caren advises people
considering taking a karate class
for the first time to come in,


observe, ask questions and jump
in.
"We emphasize safety, and we
are here to learn and have fun,"
she says.
Although Caren accepts all
ages, she believes children
should be at least kindergarten
age first, and prefers starting
students around age 7. Two
of her seven grandchildren
participated in the school until
they moved away. Currently, her
oldest students are in their 50s.


Caren has many interests and is
\ ell knoi n in Bradford County
as president of the Alligator
Creek Garden Club. She's
active in the Bradford County
Master Gardener Program and
attends the Unitarian Church in
Gainesville.
Caren is also committed
to writing several hours each
morning. She's completed a
science fiction novel, "Fern,"

Rahn: 'Where have the rabbits in Florida gone?' T LEGALS


BY BUSTER RAHN
Special to the Tehlekgrph- Tim'es.
*aMonitor

SI don't know the answer to
:the question, but I assume some
inalignancy has developed in
nature that decimated the species
from our woodlands and fence
riows. Even though I haven't shot
one in some 80 years, however,
I lave no desire or intention of
,ever shooting one again.
When 1 was a boy in rural North
I hlrid.i, rabbits lived up to their
:reputations and were prolific,
found throughout Florida, in the
country and in urban areas. They
'set up housekeeping wherever
there was enough plant life to
hide in, and it didn't require
much. Rabbits are vegetarians,
eating grass and tender growth of
other flora in the area. Vegetable
;gardens are their delight, and
rabbits can eat large areas of


tender growth in one night.
Instead of trying to kill all the
rabbits, the gardener should
fence the garden with rabbit
wire fence that has small holes
through whith rabbits can't
penetrate.
Gardeners have tried almost
everything possible to catch or
kill rabbits raiding their gardens,
but generally, the rabbit wins. If
the gardener sets a steel trap and
catches a rabbit by either a front
or back leg, the rabbit will gnaw
the leg off and escape. If caught
in a regulation homemade
wood-slat trap. the rabbit, with
its strong back legs, will kick
the trap to pieces and return to
its hideaway.
Rabbits are not fighters. Their
only defense is their eternal
vigilance and awareness of the
surrounding area. The rabbit
is rarely surprised and has the
ability to be at full speed with

With a short gestation period of
26--30 days, a female and her
descendants may number 800
rabbits at ihe end of a year.
Rabbits would seem to be
a natural and abundant food
supply for the world because of
their clean diet and availability,
but few societies have eaten
rabbit meat on a regular basis,
other than the English. Even
during the depression years of
the 1930s, rabbit meat was eaten
only occasionally, usually when
food money was in short supply.
Or maybe it was intuitive;
maybe people understood a diet
of rabbit food on a regular basis
isn't healthy. A diet of rabbit is
lacking in fat. and-a person who
consumes too much rabbit can
literally starve.
Rabbits are sometimes hosts
for botfliess. The adult fly lays

Despite noteworthy events, Union man says his job was just a job


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional New ./Sports Editor

lie's' received humps and
bruises, and has been in the
vicinity of riots.
He flew into Cuba multiple
times, looking out of the plane to
see a number of men armed with
guns.
lie's been detained at the
airport twice on suspicions of
being an illegal immigrant.
To Billy Melvin of Union
County, there is nothing
extraordinary about any of that.
(OK. maybe the illegal alien bit
was a surprise.) All he was doing
was drawing a salary, just like
any ordinary, working Joe.
"I just did my job," he said. "I
didn't do anything spectacular."
Melvin worked for the Federal
Bureau of Prisons for 20 years
before, retiring in 1996. He
served as a counselor for four
to five years of that span, but
his favorite part of the job was
.transporting inmates.
"The only thing I miss is the
bus," Melvin said, referring to
the Greyhound bus he, another
.officer and a lieutenant rode on
to take inmates from one federal
institution to another.
Melvin said such trips could
last a week at a time, with the
intended destination sometimes
not being the final one. Inmates
could be dropped off at one
institution, where Melvin and his
co-workers could find a fax or
email directing them to another
locale.
"I've been all over this place,"
Melvin said.
He had some memorable bus
rides, including a trip to Miami in
the midst of Hurricane Andrew.
"I've been in hurricanes, but
pot one like that," Melvin said
is he remembered seeing power
lines down everywhere and
vehicles that had been blown
between buildings.
SOn one transport trip, Melvin
and his crew were traveling
down the west coast of Florida.
One of the officers had never
Ween the Gulf of Mexico, but he
got more than he bargained for as
Tropical storm was brewing.
S"We were traveling down there,
hnd the waves were flopping
all over the road," Melvin said,
adding, "He was ready to get off
the road."
Then, there were the flights
to take Cuban inmates to Cuba.
Melvin said he flew there
probably eight to nine times.
Prior to the first trip, people
told him to expect the plane to
be escorted by Russian MiG
aircraft, and sure enough, that
did indeed happen, Melvin said.
People also told him of the
railroad tracks that crossed the
runway. That, Melvin couldn't
believe until he saw it in person.
"Sure enough. there was a
track across the runway," he said.
The scene, though, presented
more than the sight of railroad


tracks. Melvin can remember
seeing men armed with assault.
rifles. His thoughts were, "My
God. we're not violent. All we
want is to get in here and get
out."
A bit of culture shock came
with visiting Cuba, Melvin
said. A road which would be
comparable to an interstate
highway in the .U.S. would be
traveled by tractors pulling
trailers, horse-drawn carriages
and vehicles that looked like
they were made in the 1940s and
1950s. Melvin said the people's
dress seemed to be of the same
era as the vehicles.
If one brewed Cuban coffee in
the same fashion as one would
here in the U.S., you could place
a straw in a cup of it and have
the straw standing straight up,
Melvin said. A quarter of a scoop
per cup was all you needed.
"It was strong," Melvin said.
Melvin said he got to watch
someone rolling cigars, l.iiii n i
the man could "roll those jokers
in a heartbeat."
Speaking of cigars, Melvin
got to catch a glimpse of Fidel
Castro from not too far off. IHe
said he recognized him because
of the long cigar in his mouth.
As memorable as some of
those sights and experiences in
Cuba were, perhaps nothing was
as memorable as two particular
flights back to the U..S.
"I've been arrested by my
country twice," Melvin said.
The reason'? For being an
illegal immigrant.
Melvin said he didn't
understand how it happened
then, and he doesn't understand
it now. He and his fellow Federal
Bureau of Prisons officers knew
something was up the first
time they were detained. They
flew into Miami, but didn't
taxi to where they had on past
occasions. That tipped them off
that something wasn't right.
They were eventually stopped
by a big truck and commanded
to get their passports out.
"We handed in our passports,"
Melvin said. "We looked at each
other and said. 'What's going
on?' It was shock."
Melvin said he and his co-
workers waited six hours, while
arguments among people in
higher-up pooitiili took place
Saroulid them. ...
Thiings- wwe.r eventually
sorted out. and the officers were
allowed to continue on their
way. Approximately five trips to.
Cuba later, though, and the same
thing happened again. Melvin
said what was amazing was
that the same Immigration and
Naturalization Services woman
who was involved in the first
incident was also involved in
the second.
"We didn't stay on the ground
very long that time," Melvin
said. "We stayed a couple of
hours."
Melvin said 90 percent of

the time, the inmates he and his
co-workers were transporting
behaved.
"Then you're going to have
some who are going to try to
buck the system," he said.
Sometimes, as anybody who
works at correctional institutions
knows, they try to buck the
system at the facilities where
they are housed. Melvin was
stationed at the back gate of the
federal correctional institution
in Talladega. Ala.. during two
riots. The reasoning was that
Melvin knew who should be
coming or going.
"The reason I was put there
was because I knew everybody
in the prison who worked there,"
Melvin said.
During one of those riots,
Melvin said a man approached
the back gate to make a delivery
at a time when such a deliver,
wasn't normally made. Melvin
said he phoned the facility's
lieutenant, who gave the OK
to let the man inside. As part
of normal security procedures,
the man emptied his pockets
before walking through a metal
detector. One of the items the
man laid down was a 32-caliber

Needless to say. Melvin
again called the lieutenant.
who showed up on the scene
personally. The man was
escorted away by local police.
Melvin admitted he took a
deep breath afterward, knowing
that the man in question was
armed.
There were two riots at
institutions in Atlanta and
"Oakd'ale. La., Melvin wasn't at,
but he was on standby. He said
he was originally supposed to
go to those institutions.
Inmates during one of the
Talladega riots took correctional
personnel as hostages.
Melvin said the incidences
were scary, but no less- so
than at any other correctional
institution at any level.
"It's just'like working down
here for the state," Melvin said
in reference to the Reception
and Medical Center in Union
County, where he worked
prior to taking a job at the


federal level. "You go behind
those gates, you don't know if
you're going to come out that
afternoon."
Melvin's wife, Gail, wasn't
sure if he was going to return
from the first Talladega riot,
which lasted approximately two
weeks.
"He left, and I didn't see him
for, I guess, a week." she said.
"When he finally did come
home, he took a shower, ate
something and went back."
Though Melvin suffered no
physical harm during the riots,
he was hurt on one occasion. his
wife said.
"More than one time,"
Melvin replied,
The incident, though, that
his wife was referring to was
when Melvin and other officers
went to quite a group of inmates
down. Melvin said his back
got slammed into a doorknob.
which he said, in case you
needed confirmation, doesn't
feel too good.
Anyway. the result was that
he and the other officers were
taken to the hospital to get
checked out. A Talladega police
officer went to inform Melvin's
wife about the incident. She
went to the prison first, but then
was told her husband was in the
hospital.
Gail Melvin said she assumed
the worst.
"I thought you were dead
because you told me that was
the only way you'd go to that
little hospital," she said.


What she found when she got
to the hospital was her husband
sitting there laughing with his
face and arms covered with
bruises,
"They just beat the stew out
of you," she said, to which Billy
Melvin replied, "They still lost."
Gail Melvin, though, knew the
dangers and stresses involved
with working in corrections.
She, too. worked in the field.
She and Billy met while they
both worked at RMC.
They have been married 30
years. Gail said many marriages
where one of the people works
in corrections don't last.
"Maybe that helped our
marriage because I knew what
he was going through," she said,
alluding to her own experience
in corrections.
Besides transporting inmates,
manning the back gate of a
facility during riots and getting
in the occasional scrape, Billy
Melvin also served as an inmate
counselor for four to five years.
"You have to learn to


deal with each person on an
individual basis," Melvin said.
"You have to deal with different
cultures. You have to deal with
different personalities. You have
to learn how to recognize when
something is really wrong and
what channels you have to go
through to get the person help,"
Melvin said he had the chance
to interact with inmates who were
well known a couple of times.
One he can't talk about, he said,
bit the other was TV evangelist
Jim Bakker, who was convicted
of fraud in 1989. He also had
the chance to see "Tammy and
her eyelashes." Melvin said,
referring to Baker's then wife.
Tahmy Faye. who was known
for her heavy makeup and false
eyelashes.
In the end, though, his
interactions with famous people
amounted to no more or no less
than any of his other experiences
while working for the Federal
Bureau of Prisons. :.:
"I just did my job," Melvin
said.

James earns
6th-place
finish at state
wrestling finals

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor

It wasn't the finish he had
hoped for, but Bradford High
School senior Phillip James
sounded as if he had no regrets
after performance at the Florida
High School Athletic Association
Wrestling Finals Feb. 15-16 at
the Lakeland Center.
James, making his third
straight trip to state, placed third
last year, but had to settle for
sixth place this year, which still
earned him a medal. He said he
wanted to do better, of course,
but also realizes you can't win
them all.
For James, the satisfaction
came from knowing he gave
it his all and knowing that the
many people who supported him
knew it, too.
"I felt I did my best, and they
'believed I did, too." James said.
James. who wrestles in the
195-pound class, went 3-3.
He defeated Bishop Moore'.s
Tommy Isola 13-5 in the first
round, but when the two met up
again in the fifth-plae;.match, it.
was Isola taking the match by a
score of 3-1.
There was no real difference
in the two matches, James said.
He said he simply had to applaud
Isola for his effort.
Alex Krukinaski of St.
Petersburg's Northside Christian
pinned James in 3:07 in the
second round. Krukinaski
would go on to win the state
championship.

might as well do all he can to
grab hold of it.
"You might as well go out
there and work for it," lie said.
The win set up a natch
against University Christian's
Robert Parland, whom James
was runner-up to at the Region
1 finals. Parland defeated James
9-3 and went on to place third.
James was not the only
Bradford wrestler making a
return trip to state. Junior Jarraid
Forsyth, who was making his
second straight appearance,
went 2-2 in the 145-pound class.
Forsyth, who earned a medal
by placing sixth at last year's
finals, had to default his last
match. James said it was due to
complications fiom an injury
Forsyth sustained at the Region
1 meet.
The fact that his teammate
couldn't go on also served as an
inspiration for him to keep doing
his best, James said.
Nick Limperis of Cardinal
Gibbons. who would finish as
state runner-up, defeated F, s\ thh
13-6 in the first round. Forsyth
then pinned Space Coast's
Austin Hager in two minutes and
defeated Lake Highland Prep's
Justin Martinez 13-7.
Clearwater Central Catholic's
Zach Gradich, who would
capture the sixth-place medal,
took the default win over Forsyth.
Three days after participating
in his final high school match,
James said what he will
remember most about his
wrestling career are the many
friends and supporters he had. lIe
said even people at other schools
encouraged him and wished him
well.
"It was like a family to
me," James said of everyone
he interacted with through
wrestling.

BHS girls
were close to
earning spot in
regional finals

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
?R 'iO'ndl News/Sports Editor

A missed 3-pointer at the
end of regulation would've
won the game for the Bradfoixl
High School girls' basketball
team. which went on to lose 80-
76 in overtime to host Trinity
Catholic in the Class 4A regional
semifinals on' Feb. 12 in Ocala.
Trinity had only two losses
entering the game, but the
Tornadoes gave the Celtics all
they could handle. Bradford
rallied from a nine-point deficit
in the second half, while the
Celtics needed a 6-0 run late in
overtime to finally get the win.
Tracey Kemp. who scored 24
points, was 2-of-2 on 3-point
shots before missing her third
attempt, which would've given
Bradford 'the win in regulation.
The miss came after Trinity's
Amber Ferguson made two free
throws to tie the game with 7.3
seconds on the clock.
It was a strong shooting night
for the Tornadoes. Kemp was
9-of-12 from the field, while
NyasTiaavis. who led all scorers
with 29 points, was 14-of-16.
Taquandra Diggs, who had 10

Your mother is always
with you... She's the
whisper of the leaves as
you walk down the street.
She's the smell of bleach
in your freshly laundered
socks.
She's the cool hand on
your brow when you're
not well.
Your mother lives inside
your laughter. She's
crystallized in every tear
drop...
She's the place you came
from, your first home..
She's the map you follow
with every step that you
take.
She's your first love and
your first heart break...
and nothing on earth can
separate you.
Not time, not space...
Not even death...
will ever separate you
from your mother...
You carry her inside of
you...

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
RL.1,vi. ,1ml News/Sports Editor

Before Union County High
School baseball player Dustin
'Hersey threw the first pitch to
open the regular season for the
Tigers, he put pen to paper in
signing a letter of intent to throw
pitches at the next level'
Hersey received a scholarship
from St. Johns River State
College in Palatka. Though his
senior season at UCHIS was just
starting, he was eagerly looking
forward to his next challenge.
"I'm excited," he said. "I'm
Ready to get on out of high school
and experience the college level."
The chance to pitch at a
higher level has been a dream
of Hersey's ever since he began
Splaying rookie ball. In fact, he
said, "I always used to tell my
dad I'd like to go play in the
major leagues and stuff like that."


Tigers score 8
in 5th to defeat
Fort White 10-5
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor

SAn eight-run fifth inning
Proved to be the difference in
the Union County High School

Fort White on Feb. 14 in Fort
White.
The Tigers (2-1, rior to Feb.
1.9) took a 321l.::iAn the third.


Hersey said the reality that he
could have a chance to play in
college set in as a high school
freshman. Coaches told him he
had the ability. Hersey said lhe
"started working hard at it. I
could start seeing that it might
be true, so 1 started working
even. harder."

.Union head coach Brian
Tomlinson can attest to how
hard Hersey has worked.
"He does pretty much
everything we ask of him,"
Tomlinson said. "For him to
be able to do this is just a .real
testament to his hard work and
to the dedication he has. He
deserves this."
Tomlinson said Hersey will
bring a lot to the mound for St.
Johns. He has a live arm and
throws hard. Plus, Tomlinson
said when Hersey's on, he
can throw any pitch he wants


That held until the fifth, when
Union scored eight runs to go up
10-1.
Fort White added four runs in
the bottom of the sixth.
Kayla Andrews and Randa

for the Tigers, while Valerie

drove in one.

without having to rely solely on
a fastball.
"It's a true blessing to be able
to have that," Tomlinson said.
Also,ToImlinson said St. Johns
probably isn't expecting to get a
player who has good control of
the bat offensively.
"They're probably not really
expecting him to do that, being
a pitcher, but if they need
somebody who can lay down a
bunt, he's definitely a guy who
can do it," Tomlinson said.
'Ihough this opportunity has
been something he has been
working on for a while, Hersey

of the Union offense, lining up
at guard. Ile said he would most
likely continue to play guard or
possible move to (ackle at Miles.
"It doesn't matter." Paige said
of where he plays, adding he just
wants the opportunity to do so.
Union head coach Ronny
Prnitt was visibly moved to see
Paige get this opportunity. He
said Paige has come a long way
from the kid he first met three
years ago.
'"I can't (ell you how proud
I am," Pruill said. "I was kind
of having to fight back tears
there for a little bit. To see a kid
come so far and turn around the
way he did and just take things
seriously in the classroom and
on the football field, and to see
it pay off where he can get an
education-. that's what makes
coaching so special."
Pruitt was the school's new
head coach three years ago. He
said he and Paige butted heads a
few times.
"It's kind of like one of those
stallions that can't be tamed,"
Pruitt said. "He wasn't going
to let you get close to him. He
wanted to buck you. I think
it came down to one of those
things where he wanted to see
how much you cared."
Over time, though, Paige
became a player Pruitt could put
his trust in. Paige took on a big
role this past season as a veteran
surrounded by several new faces
on the offensive line.
"It got to a point where he
helped us coach," Pruitt said.


Laris Paige Jr. (seated, center) prepares to sign his
letter of intent to play football at Miles College. He is
seated between his parents, Laris Sr. and Shantana
Paige. His brother, D.J. Paige, stands behind him.


Paige said there were some
two-year schools interested in
him, but when Miles stepped
up with an offer, he knew it
was a perfect fit. He liked the
coaches and players he met on
a visit, and enjoyed the school's
atmosphere.
"It's like Union County,"
Paige said, "It's small. People
like each other. It's like a family
school."
Pruitt said Paige should have
no trouble fitting in when it
comes to the team. All Paige
really needs to do, besides
getting in the weight room, is
hone his skills, Pruitt said.


"He doesn't do .:- ci'rl'hi.
great." Pruitt said, "but he does
everything good. He's. one of
those rare kids you get to coach
who can pass block, run block
and do it all-pull and get out
there on the edge.
"Whatever offense they
put him in, he's going to be
successful."
Paige said he always ihTj ii
he'd get a chance to play in
college, but the actual moment
of stepping onto the field for the
first time will be overwhelming.
"I think it will be the best
moment ever," Paige said.

Fish report,
en Arrrews,
events calendar
The crappie spawn has been
puzzling this year, and the more
you listen, the more interesting
it becomes.
Fred Magyari tells of finding
Kingsley Lake shellcracker
Sbeds in December last year. Ed
Allen indicates that is consistent
*with another story he heard. No
one has -caught Kingsley Lake
crappie with roe this year, and
Townsend Strickland reminds us
that. they do not fan the bottom
like bream and shellcrackers.
SHave they spawned in Kingsley
Lake? We do not know yet.
Bass will typically bed shortly
after the crappie. Joey Tyson of
Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle in
Keystone Heights tells us some
bass are being caught from beds
now, and the crappie are still
being caught with roe. He knows
about one-caught in Hamptom
Lake-that went about 8
pounds. Len Andrews caught
a 14-pounder out of Kingsley.
Both fish were released.
In regard to Andrews, how.
many people have ever seen a
fishing boat in the water with an


8-foot'ladder bolted to the bow?
Furthermore, how many people
have ever seen a fisherman on
top of the described ladder,
controlling the boat with a
direct-drive, electric motor
while fishing?
Actually if you are a longtime,
resident of or a fisherman.,on
Kingsley Lake, the answer is
quite a few, and the person that
they see is Andrews.
Andrews lives in Richmond,
Va., with his wife, Lucille.
(His daughter, Lennie, also
lives in Richmond.) He is a
retired carpenter, and during
the 1970s, served as a fishing
guide on Rodman Lake. During
that time, he became interested
in sight fishing and eventually
developed the rig he currently
uses.
After moving back to
Virginia, Andrews could not get
Florida out of his blood; so he
started coming back for. 90 days
each year, in the spring when the
bass are bedding. Fortunately,
he chose Kingsley Laketfor his
spring fishing vacation. During
the other nine months, he sells
fishing tackle in Richmond-
not someone else's tackle,
but his own. He says he has


There's no mistaking the sight of Len Andrews fishing
on Kingsley Lake.


collected more antique and
souvenir fishing items than he
will ever be able to 'sell during
the remainder of his life.
If you visit Andrews at his
temporary residence and stay
long enough, someone like
George Canova will probably
come by and talk fishing. If
you go out in the boat with him,
you might never see him wet a


line, but if he does, you will see
him 'ctch one, and it will be a
big one. If other boats come by,
he will pull in close and talk to
them. He knows more people
on the lake than some people
who were raised there. He is
also a very easy and engaging
conversation and really loves
talking fish.
If you question the


Fins, FurS

& Tails
By Mickey Agner -


sportsmanship of sight fishing,
please wait. Andrews is a great
conservationist and sportsman,
and follows the same procedure
with each big catch. He probably.
does more to teach the big bass
in Kingsley Lake not to bite
fishing hooks than anyone.
First, after landing the fish, he
places them into an aerated tank,
takes them to a dock where a
few photographs are taken and
subsequently releases them
unharmed and much the wiser
about the ways of Kingsley Lake
fishermen.
Andrews is also an astute
observer of the bass in Kingsley
Lake as well.
"When the water turns
58 degrees, it triggers their
spawning instinct," he says.
"On the next new or full moon,
the young bucks move into the
shallow water around the docks,
fan the beds and attempt to
round up a female to lay eggs.
On the next new or full moon,
hopefully the water is warmer
out deeper and the same process
takes place at about a 10-15-
foot depth. The big females
feel a lot less vulnerable in the
deeper water with more cover,
and that is when you can really
catch them."
Cautious about bragging,
Andrews does say he is most
proud of a five-fish catch in
one day that totaled 62 pounds.
Every fish weighed more
than 10 pounds, averaging
approximately 12 pounds each;
(Andrews put his line in the
water seriously one time this


RABBITS
Continued from 2B
They are-most often seen along
highways in the late afternoons,
following a summer shower.
Alas. Something has happened
to the rabbit population, and
one can drive for 'miles after a
summer shower and never see
one. The introduction of coyotes
into -Florida may have tipped
the-scales against rabbits and
destroyed the species, and while


that reasoning is doubtful, the
coyote did arrive coincidentally
with the demise of rabbits in the
state.
The coyote is a western
animal that migrated into West!
Florida:in the 1960s and found
a new home. About the size of
a fox, it made itself at home and
became another enemy of the
rabbit. It expanded its habitat
rapidly and has now established
itself in all 67 counties. In
at least one instance, it had
some heli-in re-locating: A


fox hunting landowner in West
Florida bought and released a
number of coyotes, thinking he
had bought "black fox," proving
once again, "There is one born
every minute."
Prisons don't allow inmates to
own pets, but cats are allowed in


the housing area to help control
rats, a problem in every large
institution. Although against
the rules, inmate will feed
the cats and they will become
unapproved pets.
Outside crews working in
the woods, fields or gardens


would sometimes kill a rabbit,
dress it out and take it into the
compound, there to be sold for
a quarter. The purchaser would
cook and eat the fresh meat.
In one instance, which brought.
about a change in routines, an
inmate bought and ate his fresh


meat as usual, only to find out;
he had bought and eaten his own:
cat.
The next day a directive was:
issued that required a foot to be
left on rabbits brought into the.
compound, in order to proved
the identify of the kill.
