Fire engulfs old bookstore in LB worth of bumper gear by completing a 206-hour course called last grant for gear nine years ago. Fire Chief Mike Banks said the gear lasts about a decade, so it comes just in time. The gear is Family living upstairs displaced from uninsured building BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor The second floor of the old Books & Birthdays shop at 755 E. Main St. in Lake Butler was engulfed in flames on Monday afternoon shortly before schools were getting out. A family living upstairs was safe, but displaced from the uninsured building. The fire was called in by Florida Highway Patrol troopers driving by shortly before 3 p.m. who noticed the flames and realized no one else did. The officers reported hearing ammunition going off, and the fire also caused the live power pole near the corner of the building to spark and pop. After totaling the second floor, the fire was fully contained within an hour by Lake Butler Volunteer Fire Department and Union County Fire Department personnel, along with help from City of Lake Butler employees and forestry personnel. Union County is also staffed by volunteers. The Union County Sheriffs Office shut down State Road 100 during that time, but later opened up one lane. Florida Power & Light came to shut off the power to the pole and clear branches around it. Owner Jeff Snyder said he does not have insurance on the building because payments got to be too high. He said the top floor was built in the 1960s with fat lighter, and so was not surprised the fire tool off so quickly and intensely. Known by several different names, the framing wood is a hardened, pine lumber used in building construction for decades. Firefighters gave it that nickname because old homes burn in a matter of minutes. Sometimes called heartwood or sapwood, it was used as the prime lumber in homes decades ago LB man charged for infants broken leg BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Lawrence Collins Fogg, 34, was arrested Wednesday, Sept. 10, and charged with aggravated child abuse after Union County Sheriffs Office investigators discovered that a sevenmonth old infant suffered a fractured leg while in Foggs care. UCSO was contact ed by the Department of Children and Families concerning an injury to an infant. This report came in following an inter view by DCF in Lake City. After further investigation UCSO deputies then went to Foggs temporary home on Northeast Fifth Avenue in Lake Butler, where the child had been injured. The infant suffered a fractured leg following a burst of anger on the infant child, the suspect admitted, according to the arrest report. DCF officials along with UCSO and Columbia County Sheriffs Office deputies immediately located additional children and removed them from custody and have been working with the mother and other family members to re-stabilize the home. The infant child, who was treated at the UF Health Shands Hospital, is doing well and recovering quickly. Fogg, originally from New York, remains in the Union County Jail under a $25,000 bond, with the provision that if and when Fogg is released on bond, he is barred from having any contact with the victim/child or any minors. Fogg Stabbing occurs at house party Underage drinking also involved BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Union County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to a stabbing over the weekend during the early morning hours of Saturday, Sept. 13, at a house party on East State Road 100 east of Lake Butler close to the Bradford County line.

But the resin in that wood breaks down over time, making it extremely flammable. Such wood these days is sold in small sticks as a fire starter. At least one person online claimed just a few years ago to have found such lumber still being sold at a hardware store. Snyder said he hopes to salvage the first floor, which is constructed in concrete block. The fire displaced a family who lived upstairs. The American Red Cross responded in the early evening to provide assistance. Mary Brown was told that the Red Cross gave them money for food, clothing and hotel (for up to three days if needed), and up to $350 for the first months worth of rental assistance. Brown, who is the director of the Union County Public Library, served as the local representative for the Red Cross for 15 years. Meanwhile the fire marshal was on hand to determine the cause of the blaze. According to Ashley Carr with the State Fire Marshals Office of Communications, The fire remains under investigation but there is nothing suspicious. She said that personnel returned on Tuesday to continue their investigation.

Watch a video of the fire and see full-color photos at facebook.com/unioncountytimes received three lateral cuts to his upper right leg, was immediately transported to UF Health Shands Hospital for treatment and then released. Jacob Honeycutt, 29, a white male from Lake Butler, was arrested on the charge of felony aggravated battery. The stab bing hap pened at the house of Jonathan Norman, 20, a white male from Lake Butler who was also charged and arrested for throwing a house party and allowing minors access to alcohol. Norman admitted to having a group of friends over along with other people he did not know. Supposedly Honeycutt arrived at the open house party with two friends and he and the stab bing victim exchanged words, and then they got into a fight. Although the victim did not have a knife, the suspect said he used his knife that he normally carries in a sheath on his hip in self-defense to get the victim off him. Witnesses testimony, however, contradicted Honeycutts statement. The report stated that both victim and suspect were equally matched and engaged and that they did engage in kicking the suspect several times to get him off the victim. A broken pool cue was also recovered at the scene. Lt. Lyn Williams said that this case is still under investigation with more possible arrests pending. Honeycutt remains in the Union County Jail under a $100,000 bond. Continued from 1A Continued from 1A BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor The Lake Butler Volunteer Fire Department and the Union County Fire Department both maintain their ISO ratings after a recent annual review. This evaluation is determined by the Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO) whose purpose is to evaluate fire departments. The rating is based on the effectiveness of fire protection services and equipment available to protect the community. A rating is assigned between 1 and 10, with 1 being the best and 10 being the worst. Because the rating is one of the primary elements used by the insurance industry to develop premium rates for residential units and commercial businesses, having a lower ISO rating can help owners save money on insurance. LBVFD maintains a strong ISO rating of 4, which it has for 13 years according to Fire Chief Mike Banks. He said that is due to its fire equipment and the citys water supply, or fire hydrant system, and available dispatch services. UCFD, which is also staffed by volunteers, maintained its typical ISO rating of 9 because a rural county just doesnt have hydrants available beyond city limits and tankers can only get to a fire so fast. However, Fire Chief and EMS Director Mitch Andrews said that the ISO rating covers five road miles, so that between Worthington Springs, Lake Butler and Raiford, all of State Road 121 is covered under the rating of 9. Otherwise its a 10, and some insurance companies dont cover that. He said that once the Palestine fire station is up-and-running, all of State Road 100 would be covered under the rating of 9. The county has two water tanks installed in Palestine and Providence, respectively, with plans to possibly add ones in Raiford and the Groves area in the future. He said that equipment and especially water supply are keys to getting a lower ISO rating. With some improvements in those areas, such as adding another tanker, Andrews hopes to get an 8B rating next time around. He cited Bradford County as an example of an 8B rating because they have more tankers. According to one website, that rating is for communities that provide superior fire protection services and fire alarm facilities but lack the water supply required for a (rating of) 8 or better. When Banks informed the Lake Butler City Commissioners about the latest ISO rating review, he said the volunteer firefighters and their families are the real heroes. LB and UC fire departments each maintain ISO rating The Lake Butler Volunteer Fire Department and the Union County Fire Department, which is also staffed by volunteers, worked together along with City of Lake Butler employees and forestry personnel to put out the inferno raging on Main Street in Lake Butler earlier this week. Honeycutt Norman said that the voter registration books close on Nov. 4. Direct any questions to Supervisor or located at 175 West Main Street in Lake Butler.
Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014 Union County Times 3A LB to give employees a 3% raise, cut VFD training stipend BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor At a special meeting of the Lake Butler City Commission on Aug. 28, City Manager Dave Mecusker listed proposed budget changes for this upcoming fiscal year, which begins on October 1. The previously discussed employee raise and a cut in the volunteer fire department training stipend were included in the list. Here is the list: 1. The citys full-time employees will receive a three percent cost-of-living adjustment effective with the first pay period in October for the coming fiscal year. This includes six main city employees, four water utilities employees and five sewage employees. 2. Two zero-turn lawnmowers will be purchased for the Streets and Roads Department to replace the two worn out ones at a cost of $8,000 a piece. The city plans the purchase one next spring, and may not end up purchasing a second one. 3. Volunteer firefighters will receive a $10 stipend for every other Thursday instead of every Thursday like they do now. They will still receive $15 for each call they respond to. They will be paid on a monthly basis. The firefighters can still continue to train every week if they want. City of Lake Butler Christmas in the Jungle is this years theme Christmas in the Jungle is this years Christmas parade theme, City Manager Dave Mecusker announced at the Sept. 8 meeting of the Lake Butler City Commission. He said that Community State Bank holds a contest each year to come up with the theme. It kind of grows on you, Mecusker said. The Christmas parade will run is Saturday, Dec. 6, at 6 p.m. Halloween in Lake Butler will be recognized in November this year Nov. 1, to be exact, due to an away district football game the night before, on the actual Halloween. Trick-or-Treating on that Saturday will be from 6 to 9 p.m. As always, residents who are not home or are not participating in Halloween are asked to leave their porch light off. BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor After months of hearing appeals from just a few residents and researching its options, the Lake Butler City Commission decided it will not pursue getting golf cart crossings installed for several reason. Those residents want official golf cart crossings marked on local streets such as State Road 100 to help make it safer for going from neighborhoods to stores and back. At the Aug. 11 meeting, a letter was read stating the citys reasons: 1. The City of Lake Butler does not want to assume the liabilities associated with any fatalities or accidents. The city will be a liable party in any fatality or accident that occurred within the city limits. 2. The state highways in the city are not geographically structured to allow the additional lane(s) required to accommodate a golf cart crossing. The types of crossings permitted require a third lane that our city streets cannot accommodate. 3. The trucking companies and the traffic that Gilman (Building Products Company sawmill) brings into our city is a safety hazard for golf cart crossings. The (tractor-trailer) traffic is excessive in our little town and two major state roads that this traffic frequents, encompasses our city. 4. Traffic studies are required for each crossing that is proposed. The cost is not financially reasonable to expend with our budget and there is no assistance available to cover these costs. 5. If the city did request and complete all the necessary steps for a golf cart crossing, there is no guarantee that it will be approved (even if the minimum criteria are met). 6. Four state roads are in the city limits and this would require a minimum of four crossings in the city. All of the businesses are aligned along the state roads in the city limits. The number of crossings that would be required to accommodate usage will be a financial hardship. Florida Department of Transportation does not allow motorized vehicles on their sidewalks. The city of Lake Butler has sidewalks that have been installed by FDOT along State Roads 100 and 121 as well as First Street, Eighth Street and Ninth Avenue in the city. The city had talks with and visited Branford, which has golf cart crossings and has been cited as a similar example by citizens making their appeal. However, Lake Butlers letter stated, Our city is not geographically structured like Branford, therefore making it difficult to mimic their progress. After some additional discussion at the Aug. 11 meeting, the commission voted to close the matter, and the letter stated their stance: We understand the desire for the use of golf carts as a means of transportation during tough economic times. The City of Lake Butler has decided not to pursue this venture due to the aforementioned. We appreciate all of your patience and cooperation concerning this matter. City will not pursue golf cart crossings New signs installed at Lakeside Park The City of Lake Butler recently installed new to keep airboats out and to warn swimmers and protect the city from liability. City Manager Dave Mecusker said that neighbors have complained about the noise from airboats and that they are disruptive to wildlife. The sign reads, No Launching of Airboats. The swimming sign reads, that the splash park was vandalized recently, with its two gates getting torn off. Mecusker liked the suggestion of one resident to move the midnight to 10 p.m. and added that the city is considering having surveillance cameras installed to monitor suffered other acts of vandalism.

Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014 Union County Times 5A Hydrilla: A plant that makes the list of federal noxious weeds BY BASIL BACTAWAR UC Extension Director/Agent The state of Florida spends millions of dollars annually to control hydrilla, a weed that is a problem in Union County. It can be found in native range. When it is introduced to a new habitat, it becomes very disruptive. This aquatic weed grows about an inch every day and spreads rapidly. It is capable of reducing the level of dissolved oxygen available to fish in your pond. Additionally, it uses nitrogen and phosphorous, thereby limiting nutrients for use by other organisms in the pond or water body. Sometimes water flow can be reduced leading to flooding. It can prevent pumping for irrigation and livestock. One of hydrillas most annoying features is it can make boating, fishing and swimming difficult. Controlling this aquatic weed can be difficult. An integrated approach to control is recommended using mechanical or hand removal, use of grass carp as well as chemicals. If there is hydrilla or any other aquatic weeds in your pond, you do not want to miss the presentation and discussion by Professor Charles Cichra from the University of Florida. He will at the Union County Extension Office on September 23, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Two textbooks will be available free of charge.

I see many kids carrying a lunch bag, and perhaps some have their lunch tucked away in their backpacks. I often wonder how much packed lunches have changed since my school lunch days of peanut butter and jelly in a brown bag. School lunch bags have advanced quite a bit since the tin and plastic lunch boxes with the thermos inside. Even though technology has changed, the danger still remains the same. Has your child ever come home from school complaining of an upset stomach? You talk with them and go down the list of what they ate that day and you know you packed their lunch so that cant possibly be itor can it? A typical lunch usually consists of non-perishable food items such as snack cakes, chips or cookies usually the favorites of the bunch. Perishable foods such as cooked meats, cold cuts and pre-made chicken salad, egg salad and tuna salad are all potential targets for bacteria that cause food borne illness. Its not just the homemade items that pose a risk but store-bought packaged lunch combos can also be a problem. The best way to prevent the growth of bacteria is to keep these food items below 40 degrees. Now, we cant make our kids walk around with a refrigerator in order to keep their food safe, but there are some simple steps we can take when packing lunches the night before. Always make sure your food preparation surfaces are clean when preparing lunch. Rinse all fruits and vegetables that will be packed. Once lunch is completely prepared, refrigerate immediately and leave it in the refrigerator until its ready to transport. Utilize freezer gel packs; place a few in the lunch bag to keep lunch cool until your child is ready to eat. If your child doesnt finish their lunch and it ends up back home the best measure is to toss the perishable items. The non-perishable items can still be consumed. Whenever in doubt, its always best to throw it out! Another step that provides an added layer of protection is to pack hand sanitizer wipes in the lunch bag to get rid of germs and bacteria. There are many germs floating around school and children pass them from one to another through contact. Sanitizing wipes will help your child to remember to wipe away the germs before they eat. The start of the new school year is always a busy time: new teachers, making new friends and even setting goals to make good grades. One less worry is the danger of a child missing school due to food illness. Keeping these steps in mind will assure school lunch success throughout the school year.

LBES BY TAMMY WILKERSON Special to the Times The end of summer is usually marked by back-to-school excitement, but if youre one of the many parents struggling to make ends meet, finding a way to pay for your childs necessities can make this time a stressful one. Fortunately, several community members and organizations in Union County recently came together to help alleviate the need by collecting and donating a plethora of school related items. During the month of August, the Union County Public Library hosted a special fine forgiveness program where members could donate school supplies and have up to $10 in overdue book fines forgiven. The Department of Corrections, specifically the Reception and Medical Center, hosted a competition in which their employees donated backpacks and supplies as well. Leading the department that collected the most supplies was Peter Merola. Additional donations came from the Union County High School seniors, who collected during their annual Senior Breakfast, and from Community State Bank of Lake Butler, which donated 200 pencil boxes full of supplies. All of the donated items were presented to Lake Butler Elementary School and were and continue to be distributed to students in need. We are so grateful to live in such a wonderful community that continually gives back to meet the needs of our students, said Principal Stacey R. Rimes. Community donates to help LBES students Rimes accept donations from Union County High School Jenkins.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor Very few people get to live their lives making their dreams come true, but one Starke woman not only lived her dreams, she made a good living doing it. Kim Tenly Landry was born on March 1, 1959 on a farm on Bessent Road in Bradford County. Her parents first child, Sonny and Lane Tenly had no idea that their new baby daughter would grow up to be a world-famous horsewoman and a beloved member of the community. Sonny worked at NAS-JAX and also as an Air National Guard reservist part-time. He was a talented woodworker, making elaborate toys for Kim and her brother, Dale, including a rollercoaster in the yard and rolling airplane gravity cars. He was a great animal lover -perhaps the origin of Kims passion for animals who had a chimpanzee and other monkeys as pets until government regulations made owning primates difficult to impossible. Mom Lane was a full-time homemaker, who was very active in the Extension Homemakers Club and who has served on the Bradford-Union County Fair board for over 30 years. While not a great animal lover herself, she tolerated the parade of animals brought home over the years by Sonny and Kim, ranging from domestic strays to the unusual and the exotic. Dale was born two years after Kim and has many great memories of their growing up together. Sister Sonya, born a year later, was often left out of the mayhem which followed her older sister and brother. She usually ended up staying at home and doing all the things Kim didnt want to do, like dishes, homework, room cleaning, etc. She was always a tomboy, Dale said. She was a practical joker and was always challenging the boys in school. She could do everything they could do and usually do it better. One time I even caught her boxing with some boys and she was beating the tar out of them. She was a pretty good wrestler, too. She was always running wide open. No one could ever slow her down. There is an endless supply of Kim stories circulating the county, most of them heartwarming or just plain funny, but none that are mean-spirited. When they were growing up, Kim and Dale had a cable strung across the pond on their farm. In an early form of zip lining, they would ride across the pond on the cable. One Sunday, when everyone was ready for Sunday school, Kim made one of her famous challenges to Mark Chunky Reddish telling him to ride the cable across the pond, that he wouldnt get wet. But wet he ended up when the cable came loose and he slid into the water. Kim and Dale roamed all over the area around the family farm, swimming on DuPont property and simply exploring their world. Lane had a large dinner bell, the sound of which carried a good distance. The kids knew to come home whenever they heard it. The funny thing is, growing up, our mom knew absolutely everything we did what we got into, how it turned out, what the damage was, Dale said. Whatever we were up to, she knew it. It was kind of spooky, like she had some kind of sixth sense or something. From an early age, animals captivated Kim. Dale said she would drag home anything that would let her. Animals always adapted to Kim quickly, even the wild ones, Dale remembered. When she was young there were the usual dogs, as well as a pet pig. Later, when she started to travel, we never knew what she would bring home. She brought peacocks, ostriches, llamas, fainting goats and you name it. She only brought one thing home that dad wouldnt let her keep a skunk. She never brought home a camel, but if asked she will tell you it was close. Like many young girls, Kim was horse crazy from an early age. She would try and ride her fathers cattle in unwatched moments. When she was about four years old, Lane said she pulled a colt over to a shed and climbed up on it. Not long after that, she climbed up on the barn roof and slid down it to land on a horses back. Sonny rode on P.D. Reddishs sheriffs posse, along with Dr. Drew A.J. Berry. Sonny rode a big palomino horse that was a little on the rough side and required an experienced rider. After another member of the posse a young girl was injured trying to ride him, Sonny forbade Kim to ride the horse. Her greatuncle Roy Tenly gave her a chestnut gelding, named Roscoe, as her first horse and she fell in love with him instantly, although she will tell you she still rode the palomino a lot when her parents werent around. Having a horse made Kim even more of a tomboy and seems to have brought out the daredevil in her even more. She joined the Bradford County Riding Club and discovered barrel racing and it became a passion, which would shape the rest of her life. I liked it because it goes fast, Kim said with a crooked grin. It was fun. Kim was the first female president of the Bradford County Future Farmers of America (FFA). As a project, she and Sonny cleared a large piece of property, cutting trees and pulling stumps to make a pasture. Sonny put a landing strip for his small plane at the back of the field. Dad had a plane at Keystone Airport, but liked to fly it home sometimes, Dale remembered. He would buzz the field going in one direction to clear all the animals off the runway, then turn and land on the return trip. He would also buzz Mom when he was going to land the plane in Keystone so she would come and pick him up. This buzzing the field would eventually lead to the first of several major injuries Kim incurred working with horses. One day, while Kim was at work training a horse, her father buzzed the field as usual, but this time the nervous animal got badly spooked by the noise. Kim jumped off the horse, but it reared up and came down on her, hitting her in the forehead, face and body, and then stepped on her. A neighbor came to the grocery store to tell me what happened, Lane remembered. Another called rescue and held her up until they got there. Kim suffered a concussion, a crushed liver of which 65 percent had to be removed and a crushed spleen, which was removed completely. Kim excelled at FFA, showing that, as Dale said, she had no limitations.

Editors note: Quotes in this story were taken from previously published stories. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Being a star of a TV show would seem like a dream come true, but Lawtey native Katelyn Sims has overcome a lot to turn that dream into a reality. Sims can be seen on History Channels Ax Men as part of the Dreadknots logging crew, something that doctors never wouldve envisioned earlier in Sims life. The 2009 Bradford High School graduate has cystic fibrosis and, according to doctors, was not supposed to live to see her early 20s. Yet Sims is still here and doing her part to help fight CF. The fight includes the sixth annual Bradford-Union Great Strides event, a 3-mile fundraising walk/ run that will take place Saturday, Sept. 27, beginning at Shands Starke Regional Medical Center at 9 a.m. Registration is at 8 a.m. Sims was instrumental in helping to get the fundraiser started in Bradford County. She said she may not live long enough to see a cure for CF, but her efforts, hopefully, will help lead to a cure for others. She doesnt want children born with CF to have to endure the life she had to. They wont have to grow up with all of the hospital stays and doctors visits, Sims said. They can live a normal life. Sims was diagnosed with the disease at the age of 4, though that diagnosis did not come quick. In the two years prior to turning 4, she was taken to doctors 27 times.

Constitution Week, an annual, national observance started by the Daughters of the American Revolution, is underway, having begun Sept. 17 and running through Sept. 23. The weeklong commemoration of Americas most important document is one of our countrys least known official observances. Our Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom, and to ensure those inalienable rights to every American. In 1955, the Daughters of the American Revolution petitioned Congress to set aside Sept. 1723 annually to be dedicated to the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by Congress and signed into Public Law #915 on Aug. 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The aims of the celebration are to emphasize citizens responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution, and preserving it for prosperity; inform the people the Constitution is the basis for Americas great heritage and the foundation for our way of life; and encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787. The United States functions as a republic under the Constitution, which is the oldest document still in active use that outlines the self-government of a people. This landmark idea that men had the inalienable right as individuals to be free and live their lives under their own governance was the impetus of the American Revolution. Today, the Constitution stands as an icon of freedom for people around the world. The Daughters of the American Revolution has served America for 124 years as its foremost cheerleader. In 1928, the Daughters began work on a building as a memorial to the Constitution. John Russell Pope, architect of the Jefferson Memorial, was commissioned to design the performing-arts center known as DAR Constitution Hall. Today, DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., is one of the only structures erected in tribute to the Constitution of the United States of America. Known as the largest womens patriotic lineage organization in the world, DAR has more than 177,000 members, with 3,000 chapters in all 50 states and in 13 other countries. DAR has long promoted patriotism through commemorative celebrations, memorials, scholarships and activities for children, and programs for new immigrants.

FFA Nationals in Kansas City with teacher Greg Alvarez and was also a driving force in the organization under the leadership of the next teacher, Paul Hutchins. Other than her FFA activities, she showed little interest in the social side of high school, preferring instead to hurry home to Roscoe and her other animals. She was active in church, however, attending First Baptist Church of Starke where her father volunteered as a general handyman and driver of the church bus. Lane remembers some of Kims antics while attending. At the time Kim was a young teen, we had childrens church on the top floor of the church, Lane said. There was a big central auditorium with a number of small rooms around the edges where we had Sunday school classes. I asked Kim to watch the other kids while I ran an errand. When I got back she had simply shut all the kids who wouldnt cooperate with her in the small rooms. Lane remembered Kim in the church choir, where the members had long white robes as uniforms. Kim would jump on a Vespa moped that we had on the farm and ride to church, in her uniform with the robes flapping in the wind. She was always such a slap-happy kid who loved jokes, was totally fearless and who could do anything the boys could do. When she graduated, Kim went to work full-time at Gold Kist Farm and Service Center, better known today as Gold Key Farm & Western Store. Two years later, Dale joined the Air National Guard when he graduated, serving full time maintaining F-15 and F-16 aircraft. He was a member of the unit, which was first to fly with the East Germans when the wall came down. He made the military a career, then retired to civilian life and has recently opened a business in Starke. Little sister Sonya Baldree graduated from BHS a year after Dale and attended the University of Florida, where she earned a degree in elementary education. She taught for a while and now heads the library for both Starke and Southside elementaries. Kim was first hired at Gold Kist while she was still in high school. Owner John Smith remembers the day he met, and hired, her well. The BHS FFA came in, and as I remember, it was all boys except for Kim, Smith said. In those days, all the feed came in 100-pound sacks, so here go all these big, strapping boys snatching up bags and carrying them out. Well, Kim was never one to let a boy outdo her, so she just snatched a bag up herself and carried it out. I had some office jobs that needed done, things that we didnt like to do and kept putting off, and I thought it might be a good idea to have a girl around to do them who could also help out in the warehouse if we needed it, so I hired her. She was a good worker, so it was a foregone conclusion that the job would continue when she graduated. At Gold Kist, Kim indulged her penchant for practical jokes along with co-worker George Grant. Grant was about the same age as her father, but the two became fast friends and co-conspirators on an endless number of practical jokes. Smith said that over the years the jokes ran from mild to wild, but one sticks out among the many, probably because the joke was on him. I was known for always coming in a little late in the mornings, Smith said. One morning, Kim, George and Wayne Wall came in to open and found a big dead rattlesnake that a customer had left on the porch. They took it and coiled it up under my desk. When I came in they all looked kind of sheepish, so I was pretty sure they were up to something. I went on into my office and sat down at my desk. When I rolled the chair up to the desk, I felt something under my foot and looked down. There was the rattlesnake. I shoved the chair back real fast and half of me thought I must have been had. The other half of me knew I had been when I looked over to see three heads, stacked up in the door, watching the show. Revenge is sweet, however, and Smith enlisted Grant in a plan to turn the tables on crazy Kim, as he called her. Kim was always in a hurry, Smith recalled. She would rush out of here to get down to the fairgrounds to the riding club and would always end up coming back, either to get something he had forgotten or to get something someone needed. One night after she left, we rigged up an old raincoat with a broom for a head so that when she opened the door it would rush towards her. She came back and opened that door and the thing scared her so bad she slammed the door, ran and jumped in her truck and drove all the way back to the fairgrounds. Once she calmed down, she figured she ought to come back and lock the door, which she did. Smith said Kim was always a hard worker and a good employee. Smith said he was happy for her success, but he was sorry when she left to pursue her dream. Kims dream was barrel racing. When asked why, she said simply, They go fast. Kim began barrel racing at the Bradford Riding Club, but longed to ride on the professional womens rodeo circuit in the sport. She barrel raced in her spare time, taking off on weekends to race, then rushing home to work on Monday. A rider named Squeaky Larkins helped her get her start on the professional circuit. She rode primarily in the now defunct futurity division where colts four years of age and under compete in their first year of competition. This division ended with the 1993 season. Kim rode in events sanctioned by the Womens Professional Rodeo Association. She won every major futurity event. She was the first woman to top the U.S. futurity charts for three years in a row (1995, 1996 and 1997) and won a world championship in the event class. In 1989, Kim earned more than $90,000 from her riding and won the Florida Barrel Racing Associations championship. She continued to work at Gold Kist until the day in 1993 that she realized she had won more than $100,000 for the year and the season was not over. She decided to pursue riding and training horses full time and resigned from her job at Gold Kist after 18 years. According to the record books for that year, Kim won $61,044.90 in a little over 17 seconds as the 1993 futurity winner at Fort Smith, Arkansas, with event winnings of almost $72,000 and it was just the middle of June. In 1999, Kim was named as one of six million-dollar barrel racers, with a career total of $1,095,620. She appeared in every major magazine about barrel racing and the horse industry. When named to the list, Kim gave an interview where she summed up her career in a single sentence. Ive always had an obsession with horses since I was little and it was always a dream to do this and it came true for me, Kim said. She had begun training for other people in 1989. Since 1993 she has had 65 winning horses some hers, some belonging to other people. She also bred horses and designed her own line of saddles. Most of her work was done at her Clover Leaf Farm in Starke. No one knows how many miles Kim has logged over the years. She traveled almost every week during the rodeo season, as well as to workshops and other events. She always traveled alone, drinking numerous Mountain Dews and stopping by the roadside to nap when she needed it. She only took one precaution when she traveled if she won big, even though she was paid by check, she would always mail it home. Injuries are a part of working with horses and Kim was no exception. She suffered the usual bumps, cuts, scrapes and bruises. She only had two major injury events, however the one previously mentioned and an incident at the Bradford Riding Club in 1993. Kim was doing what she loved when she was thrown by the horse and then stomped by it. Her leg was badly broken and there were internal injuries with serious blood-loss issues. Kim went to intensive care and ended up with a metal rod in her leg. Bradford County residents donated 15 pints of blood to help save her. Kim is known all over the county for her energy, tenacity and her generosity. She is known as a person who will go out of her way to help someone. She is still well known nationally as well, and has many friends in the rodeo business. Along the way Kim was married twice and had two children. She first married Rodney Griffis and they had two children Dusty Griffis and Amanda Hardee. Kims second marriage, later in life, was to Paul Dale Landry. The horse life was more than either of the men bargained for, Lane said. Today, they are all good friends. Today, Dusty works for Gainesville Regional Utilities and Amanda owns her own hair salon Cuttin Up. Kim is especially well known for her work with children. Over the years, she has spent thousands of hours working with kids individually and at the riding club to help them achieve their dreams. She has taught everyone from local kids to the daughter of one of the governors of Louisiana. Kids came from all over the country to attend what they called Kims torture camp, most of them bunking at her house. Kim taught the daughters of local resident John Torode, a longtime friend and fellow horse lover. Torode said it all started when he and his family went to a rodeo in Green Cove Springs and his daughter, Megan, became fascinated with barrel racing and said that was what she wanted to do. Torode said he did what any parent in the county with an aspiring barrel racer did he took her to Kim. She started with Megan Torode when she was about 10 years old and then with her sister, Mary, a few years later. She worked with Megan three days a week, with John trailering her horse to Kims farm for the lessons, even letting Torode use her trailer until he bought one. Megan and Mary were successful on the rodeo circuit, with Megan winning state and world reserve championships and Mary winning one world championship and the reserve championship twice. Kim loved working with kids and she may be the best friend I ever had, Torode said. We kept some of her horses on our place when she had too many. When she quit heavy competition six or seven years ago, she developed a passion for turkey and deer hunting and would come out to our farm to hunt. According to Torode and other family and friends, Kim had started having severe migraines several years ago, which then developed into spells of vertigo. More recently, she began to have problems with her motor skills, such as difficulty getting off a horse. She was diagnosed with frontal-lobe dementia, a degenerative brain disorder. I feel like she has been robbed, said her brother, Dale. I looked it up on the Internet and it said that one of the causes may be head trauma earlier in life. Its just so sad. She had so much going for her and now its all going away and shes only 55. Kim has stopped training and breeding horses and only rides when with her friends at the riding club. She needs help getting the horse tacked up and getting off of it when the time comes, but once on board, she still runs the barrels just like the champion she is.

Letters email@example.com Dear Editor: When I sit and listen to the news of the day, I have asked myself, How much worse can it get? and I have to remind myself that Jesus tells us in the Holy Bible when you see these things, wars and rumors of wars this is only the beginning. So I guess it is only the tip of the iceberg that we are seeing. Man is building a new Tower of Bable. He is telling God, you have to rewrite the bible, you know God, this is the 21 st century! No, what was, what is, and what will be, the commandment of God, dont change, like the styles of the world do. The cry of the Jews in pastimes was How long, oh God, will you let this persecution of your people go on? Today we should ask ourselves, How long, oh God, will you let your commandments be trampled? The Bible tells us that on the day of Armageddon, the blood will be as high as a horses bridle, I believe that the tears of mankind will be a second to this event. It is the most important time in history, to pray, and ask Gods forgiveness for the sins we have committed against all of Heaven. 4,000 babies a day are thrown in a dumpster in America alone. The tears of Rachel are not being heard. Frank the Baker How much worse can it get? Its only the beginning Dear Editor: On September 10, 2014, the Lake Butler City Commission appointed Mr. Scott Cason as City Commissioner to fill the vacancy left by Mr. Jimmy Beasley. That is all the Union County Times saw fit to report. This is the rest of the story. On August 28, 2014, the City Commission discussed filling the vacancy. After discussion involving City Manager David Mecusker, City Attorney John Maines and the present Commissioners, Fred Sirmones, Lake Butler to be more open with the public Debra Browning and Annette Redman, it was decided there were four options. They could leave it vacant, have a special election, appoint the person of their choice by majority vote and/or solicit applicants and the Commissioners could vote on one of the applicants. It was decided to vote on which method to use at their next meeting on September 8, 2014, and proceed from there. On September 8, 2014, Mecusker, Maines, Sirmones, Redman, Browning and Commissioner Randy Jenkins were present. Discussion among the city officials revealed Mr. Vernon Dukes, Mr. Scott Cason, Mr. Ray Crawford and a Mr. Floyd had submitted themselves for consideration by the Commission. Jenkins stated the person who lost to Mr. Beasley should be considered. Mecusker claimed a special election would cost $5000.00. Discussion between the city officers and commissioners revealed they did not want to spend the money for a special election or leave it vacant. There never was a vote on which option to exercise. Browning threw Casons name up for vote. Redman immediately seconded it, Sirmones gave a yea and Jenkins gave a nay. My opinion is the city officers and commissioners failed to consider the will of the people and in selecting Mr. Cason, selected someone the people had voted out of office two years ago. Granted it was a close election, I think he lost by only thirty-four votes, but he lost! Additionally, Mecusker misrepresented the facts regarding cost of an election. According to the budget prepared by Mecusker, $3,750.00 was budgeted for the 2014 city election and only $2,709.00 was actually spent. Even if it took three months to fill the vacancy by election, the people would be represented by the person of their choice for 17 or 18 months instead of a commission perceived as being a stacked deck for 21 months. Also discussed at the September 8, 2014, was the proposed 2014 2015 city budget. The public raised the issue of the disparity between the salary and benefits of Mecusker and his counterpart in Starke currently called City Clerk. Mecuskers base salary is currently $89,500.00. His total benefit package is $120,295.00. Mecusker supervises 12 people and a budget worth a hair over 2 million dollars. Mecuskers counterpart in Starke made a salary of $55,000.00, plus benefits not coming close to $100,000.00, supervises 70 employees and is responsible for 17 million dollars. My comment to the commissioners was that Lake Butler is not getting much bang for its buck. Also addressed by the public was the city budget prepared by Mecusker not allotting money for the Recreation Department. Mecusker stated the Recreation Department had $40,000.00 on hand and had not picked up the $4,000.00 previously budgeted, therefore no more was appropriated. The fact is the Recreation Department has $25,000.00 on hand, usually waits till the last month of the budget year to pick their money up, and has a very productive program. On that note, at the City Commission and County Commission Interlocal Agreement Workshop on September 10, 2014, Mecusker told the County Commission money had been budgeted for the 4th of July. In fact, the proposed budget Mecusker has presented shows no money for the 4th of July, a celebration benefiting the citizens and businesses of Lake Butler. He is proud of his flagpole and should facilitate its backlighting on the 4th with an awesome display. Also a matter of contention at the September 8, 2014, meeting was the fact that the City of Lake Butler had entered into a secret settlement agreement with ex-employees of the city. Mr. John Shaw raised an interesting question. How can the City of Lake Butler, a public entity, enter into a secret agreement with city employees who are public officials and not reveal the costs and conditions of that settlement? My opinion is that Florida is an open records state and expenditures of city funds, conduct of city employees, conduct of city management and expenditures of money to make a complaint go away is of vital interest to the citizens. Mecusker argued that the settlement was reached by the citys insurer and attorneys. The citizens paid for the insurance and paid for one or more attorneys. That should be public record. If city management engaged in misconduct or questionable practices the citizens have a right to know. If the employees engaged in misconduct we have a right to know. Hiding behind the skirt of a nondisclosure agreement in public management/employee relations is a dangerous path. The citizens could very well be liable for damages in the future if Editors note: The following letter was sent to the WCJT program director. Dear Sir or Madam: I understand that PBS has broadcast a program which extols the virtues of four late-term abortionists. I wonderdid any of your coverage show the actual results of such an act? In other words, did you show exactly what a late-term abortion looks like? If not, why not? Surely you must realize that promoting someones actions without actually showing what they do is a blatant act of deception. Is the truth important to your operation? Or is the truth something that is best left of the floor of an editing room if it does not advance a particular agenda? Does your station exist to advance particular agendas, or is the truth your goal? This community deserves to know. Sincerely, Leonard C. Young PBS airing deception we still have the same city manager(s) making serious errors in judgment again. The ex-employees must have been free of wrongdoing, otherwise why pay them off? So much for government in the sunshine! Elected and appointed officials of the City Commission need to make a concerted effort to accurately report to the citizens of Lake Butler the business of the city. They need to insure they have an intimate working knowledge on matters upon which they cast a vote. It is easy to be lead astray by smooth talkers and claims of expertise.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High Schools defense created five turnovers, but the Tornadoes were still outgained by almost 200 yards in a 27-7 road loss to Fort White on Sept. 12. The Tornadoes (0-3) trailed 14-7 at the half, thanks to a Don Jeffers interception that set up a 12-yard touchdown pass from Jacob Luke to Shawn Aaron. However, Bradford was held to approximately 50 yards in the second half, with only two of five second-half drives lasting more than three plays. Bradford didnt help itself with 16 penalties for 100 yards, which almost equaled the teams offensive output (approximately 111 yards). Fort White (2-1) seemed to be driving for the first score of the game early in the first quarter until Bradfords Carlton Hankerson recovered a fumble at his own 8-yard line. A short punt after three plays kept play on Bradfords side of the 50, but the Indians couldnt capitalize on the field position, turning the ball over on downs at the 30 when Jeffers tackled running back Cameron White for no gain on a fourth-and-4 play. The Indians didnt seem to be going anywhere on their next possession, facing a secondand-21 after a fumble. Jeffers, Jameaze McNeal and Chance Oody combined to tackle White for a 3-yard gain, but after Bradford was flagged for being offsides, Fort White turned a third-and-13 play into a 49-yard touchdown play on a pass from Demetric Jackson to Jabari Rivers at the 11:07 mark of the second quarter. Brandon Shrums PAT put the Indians up 7-0. After forcing the Tornadoes to Tornadoes 0-3 after 27-7 loss to Fort White BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Caleb Cox passed for two touchdowns, and Isaiah Johnson ran for three more, leading the Union County High School football team to a 41-0 win over Keystone Heights on Sept. 12 in Keystone. Cox passed for 219 yards and connected with five different receivers throughout the game. He found Franklin Williams on a 10-yard strike for the games first score with 4:13 remaining in the first quarter. Williams had three catches in the game for 70 yards and one touchdown. Another Cox throwa 17-yard completion to Zak Leeset up the touchdown pass to Williams, as did runs of 19 and 7 yards by Antwan Durn during the same drive. Tyler McDavid kicked the PAT, opening up a 7-0 Union County lead. The Tigers (3-0) started their next scoring drive on their own 36 with 11:05 left in the second quarter. Durn started the campaign with runs of 9 and 25 yards, taking the ball to the 30. Disaster nearly struck when Johnson fumbled, but the Tigers recovered the ball on the Keystone 25. On the next play, Johnson found paydirt. McDavids extra point took the score to 14-0. After Keystone (0-2) went three-and-out, Williams gave the Tigers the ball on the Union County 27 after an 8-yard punt return. Durn then broke several tackles, going for 36 yards. Johnson followed that up with a 17-yard gallop of his own, breaking free several times from the grasps of Keystone defenders. Cox then connected with Lee for 11 more yards, taking the ball to the Keystone 9. From there, Johnson ran for a second score. McDavid added the extra point, and Union County took a 21-0 lead into the half. To start the third quarter, Cox and company picked up where they left off. Durn and Johnson started off the second half with runs of 19 and 28 yards. Cox hit Lee for 4 yards, Khris Wimpy for 6 yards and Lee for 19 more to take the ball to the Keystone 6.

was wrong with her daughter, who was constantly sick and constantly coughing, who wasnt developing and growing as she should. Doctors diagnosed such conditions as bronchitis, respiratory infection, flu and pneumonia, but medication for such conditionsthough having an initial impactdid nothing to make Sims well. It took just one visit to local advanced registered nurse practitioner Anne Perantoni to finally provide the answer as to what was wrong. In five minutes, Perantoni made note of Sims clubbing digitsthe spread of her fingers and toes due to a lack of oxygendeep chest cavity and protruding stomach. She suspected CF, which was later confirmed by a sweat test. (People with CF have an increased amount of salt in their sweat.) If you go by and look at her after shes been out in the sun for a half hour or so, you will see what appears to be sand on her forehead, Leisa Sims said. Its actually salt crystals. She sweats pure salt crystals. Her life has been one of hospital visits and stays for IV medication, breathing treatments and respiratory and physical therapy. She also makes unplanned visits to the hospital, such as the time she developed an MAI bacterial (non-tuberculosis mycobacterium) infection. Its very, very aggravating because you never know, Sims said about the timing of some of her illnesses and trips to the hospital. Not that shes let that bother her too much. She has been active throughout her life, whether its competing in numerous pageantsshe is the current Miss Tri County and has also been Bradford-Union Strawberry Queen and Miss Suwannee River Jamor entertaining TV audiences on Ax Men along with fellow crew members Capt. Clint Roberts and Dave the Kraken Stone. Once, Sims practiced for a pageant while she was in the hospital, finding a vacant room in which to work on her talent routine. In another instance, she had herself admitted to the hospital early for routine therapy so that she would not miss homecoming festivities at Bradford High School. She was a member of the homecoming court and also felt it was important to be part of the festivities since she was a captain of the cheerleading squad. I had 25 cheerleaders counting on me to be there, Sims said. I got put in the hospital the week before just so I could make it to homecoming. I had to go right back in after homecoming. All this despite two occasions in which doctors predicted she wouldnt live beyond the ages of 12 and 16. This girl has more heart than anybody Ive ever met in my life, said Sims Ax Men costar Stone. Perhaps thats why the Bradford-Union Great Strides event has been so successful year in and year outpeople are just inspired by Sims and how she handles having CF. Sims, though, had no doubts that her community would support the event. I had faith in the community, she said, but the turnout we have every year, the amount of dedication everybody puts in and all the different little things everybody does that they dont even have toits beyond what I thought it would be. To find out more about the event, make a donation or register to participate, please visit cff.org. Prior to Great Strides, there will be a clearance sale at Its Your Day Bridal and Formal Boutique in downtown Starke from Thursday, Sept. 18, through Saturday, Sept. 20, with 75 percent of the clearance-item sales going toward BradfordUnion Great Strides. On August 28th my husband of 45 years passed away after a courageous battle with failing health. Losing him has been one of the most difficult life events I have ever faced, but the outpouring of love, support, encouragement, and willingness to do whatever I need has been a major lifeline for me. The loss of my husband pales in comparison to every other loss in my life. No matter how prepared you think you are you arent just seeing someone eating a Parfait (his treat of choice) from McDonalds can bring me to tears. Im writing this to say to thanks to so many people and organizations that demonstrated their love not only during his life but in his death as well. First my thanks go to Moring Funeral Home for the dignity, support and beautiful way they handled every aspect of the arrangements and service. Next thanks to Dr. Farmer, Dr. Moore, David Golden and the Keystone United Methodist Church for allowing me to hold the service there and be a little irreverent by playing the Gator Fight Song. My next thanks goes to Sally Linton, President of the Keystone Heights Womans Club and the ladies both old and brand new members who set up the club, prepared food, cleaned up and countless other details to make the reception organized and beautiful. Also, special thanks to the KH Sportsmans Club and their members who sent food for the reception. I also want thank the Keystone Post Office, KH Jaycees, The Lake Region Kiwanis Club, The Clay County School District and such wonderful teachers (one group is having a brick placed in his honor at the Gator Walk he would be so proud). There were so many flowers, plants, cards (at least two feet high) food and drink sent to the house that I could never repay all the kindness that came our way. I read every card several times with so many warm notes and comments. Also, many people sent donations to our Clay County Gator Club to be used toward the Scholarship Fund for deserving Clay County students. Thank you to one unknown person who saw me as they went through the drive through at Johnnys and bought my lunch. I tried to find out who you were to thank you but our server said she didnt know. As we made our way to the Keystone Heights Cemetery via the golf course where on many occasions he teed off and sometimes became teed off, we were led by the dedicated members of the Bradford County Sheriffs Office. I watched as cars moved to the side of the road as a sign of respect and my heart was warmed. To each of you please know our family is grateful and have always been so proud of our community and their ability to rally around people in their time of need. You stood tall this time. I could never list everyone that brought hope to our family during this time of need, but please know I feel your spirit with me.

Offer expires 10/31/14 OR Card of Thanks BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor After nine months on the bench, Bradford Countys placeholder judge has had time to get used to the area and to exercise his creativity in sentencingtrying to make a point to offenders as well as punishing them. Richard B. Davis was appointed to finish out the term left vacant by the passing of longtime County Judge Johnny Hobbs. He was selected from a pool of applicants, which included local attorneys as well as people from outside the area. Davis came out of retirement to accept the post and is quick to point out that he is here only on a temporary basis. His age would make it impossible for him to run for election to the position even should he desire to do so. He comes to the position with no agenda and a desire to make the system work in its corrective function, not just in its punitive purpose. He tries to find sentencing options which not only make the point of preventing recurrence of the crime, but that also can help the person in the process when possible. Many local residents have noticed the people standing on street corners holding signs saying, I stole from a local merchant. This is Davis doing. Years ago at St. Petersburg High School, I got caught trying to sneak in late, Davis said. It was my senior year, and the principal made me pick up trash all over the school property in plain sight of all of my friends. I wasnt late another time that year. I guess you could call it beneficial embarrassment. Davis said having to hold up a sign stating ones offense is a form of punishment which he hopes will serve as a tool to prevent recurrence of the crime by that individual and also influence the viewers, especially kids, from committing the crime for fear of embarrassment. There is not as much emphasis on values in many homes as there used to be, Davis said. There are many young people coming up today who really dont know what is or is not legal. The big stuff like murder they know, but not the lesser offenses. In response to this lack of information, one of the sentencing options open for Davis use is the requirement to attend a criminal cognition course, which explains the main point of laws in laymans terms. He may also use jail time, drug and substance evaluation and treatment and community service as part of an offenders sentence. The point is to correct behavior, not simply to punish it, Davis said. It is in his work with juvenile offenders where Davis can be the most effective in preventing recurrence of criminal behavior. Studies have shown that many juvenile offenders are poor readers, Davis said. The school of thought that has arisen from these studies is that if you improve the young persons reading skills, they become less likely to continue with inappropriate and criminal behavior. Davis can order tutoring in reading as part of a juvenile sentence, as well as an overall improvement of grades. He can require juvenile offenders to get eligible for a school sport and participate in it, or to join 4-H or FFA. Currently, he has one young offender who is interested in sports reading books on the subject and writing book reports on thembook reports to be turned into and read by the judge. Davis said he sees the practice of law as a service profession, not a money making one. He believes when one has become good enough to be made a judge at the county level, he has been given a chance to really help the community he serves. My job is to impose order in the community, Davis said, but never forget that the people coming before me are individuals with baggage and problems and situations in their lives. I try to make the punishment fit both the crime and the person who has committed it. Davis said he is happy to serve here and has found nothing but welcome and assistance by those he works with. The courthouse staff is amazing, Davis said. Everyone here and in the law enforcement community has been so helpful and welcoming. I love it here. Davis said his right hand is Judicial Assistant Diane Moore. Moore was trained by Hobbs and worked with him for seven years. Davis credits her with keeping things running after Hobbs death and helping to keep him straight while he learned his way around. This is truly a nice place to work, and I look forward to being here until my commission expires Jan. 3, 2017, Davis said. Then I will step aside for whomever the people of the county choose through the elective process, and I will return to retirement, but I will enjoy it here while it lasts. B. Davis is enjoying his time in Bradford placeholder judge, and relishes the opportunity to use his years and creativity in trying to make a difference in the community.

Jackson threw a 9-yard pass to J.T. Byrne before White broke free for a 41yard touchdown run with 8:20 remaining in the second quarter. Bradfords defense came up big on Fort Whites next two drives with interceptions by Hankerson and Jeffers. Jeffers made his pick inside the Fort White 40 and returned the ball to the 12-yard line with 52 seconds left in the first half. On the first play following the change of possession, Luke hit Aaron with a pass at about the 5-yard line, with Aaron bulling his way into the end zone from there. Jud Hicks added the PAT to make it 14-7 going into the half. Fort White opened the second half with a 14-play, 56-yard drive, but turned the ball over with a fumble on a fourth-and-2 play at the Bradford 4-yard line. The Indians Nick McClain recovered a Bradford fumble two plays later. That set White up for a 5-yard touchdown run and a 20-7 Fort White lead. White finished with approximately 100 yards, but it was backfield mate Donald Robinson who did the bulk of the work on the Indians next possession. Robinson got loose on a run of more than 20 yards before fumbling, but Fort White recovered at the Bradford 7. Blair Chapman scored on a run from there, with Shrums PAT capping the scoring at the 1:50 mark of the third quarter. The Indians did threaten to score again in the fourth quarter. Following a short punt, Robinson had a 13-yard run to set up first-and-goal at the 5. However, a pass by Jackson was tipped by Bradfords Xavien Jenkins before being intercepted by Hicks in the back of the end zone. Bradfords offense responded with its best drive of the game. Aundre Carter had a 7-yard run on first down, followed by a 13yard run by McNeal. Luke then scrambled for a 26-yard gain to the Fort White 34. Aside from the possession set up by Jeffers second-quarter interception, it was the only time the Tornadoes had been inside the Indians 40yard line. The Tornadoes couldnt keep the momentum going, though, with the Fort White defense making three tackles behind the line of scrimmage and Bradford getting penalized for holding. Luke and Carter led the Tornadoes in rushing with 39 and 30 yards, respectively. Luke also completed four passes for 32 yards, with Aaron catching two passes for 16 yards. Aaron also had two kickoff returns for 47 yards. Bradford opens District 4-4A play on Friday, Sept. 19, at the Villages at 7:30 p.m. The Buffalo are 2-1 after a 33-7 victory over Pierson Taylor on Sept. 12. They opened the season with a 17-7 loss to Belleview before rebounding with a 27-6 win over Brooksville Central. Last year, the Tornadoes defeated the Villages 25-8. with 9:28 left in the third quarter. McDavids PAT opened up a 28-0 Union County lead. Johnson rushed for 98 yards on 10 carries. Durn led the Tigers in rushing with 127 yards on 11 carries. The Tigers Alden McClellon cut short Keystones subsequent possession by intercepting a pass. Union County then marched from the 50-yard line to the Keystone 20. The Indian defenders then dropped Darian Robinson for a 10-yard loss, and Union County was flagged for holding on the following play. Two Cox incompletions left the Tigers with a fourth-and-30 from their own 40-yard-line. Eschewing the kicking alternatives, Union County head coach Ronny Pruitt called on Coxs arm once again, and the senior quarterback delivered, finding Lee for a 29-yard gain. The Keystone defense, though, corralled Lee 1 yard short of the first down, and the Indians took over on their own 11. However, on the following play, the Tiger defense recovered a Keystone Heights fumble, giving Union County the ball on the Indian 9. Cox then found Lee in the back of the end zone for Union Countys fifth touchdown. A holding penalty nullified the score, and pushed the Tigers back to the 14. Union County then ran the same play, with the same results, with Lee out-jumping two Keystone defenders to come down in the back of the end zone. McDavids extra point made the score 35-0 with 5:05 left in the third quarter. Lee ended the game with five receptions for 65 yards and one touchdown. On the following series, the Tiger defense denied Keystone a first down, forcing a punt. The Union County defense held Keystone to four first downs and 40 yards of total offense. The Tigers had 219 yards passing and 228 yards rushing for a total of 447. Following the Indian punt, Union County took over on its own 40 with 2:36 left in the third quarter. A Keystone unsportsmanlike conduct penalty took the ball to the Keystone 48, and from there, Cox hit Dairon Alexander for a 23-yard completion to the Keystone 25. On the next play, Robinson ran for the games final touchdown. McDavids extra-point attempt hit the crossbar and was no good, resulting in a 41-0 final score. After the game, Pruitt could running back eludes the grasp of Tyler Ricketts rushed for 98 yards and three touchdowns. Photo by Tonya Gibbs. ROLL Continued from 7B helps bring White player.
