Pot find

leads to

gun arrest

Telegraph Editor
Officers found more than
expected for while investigating
a marijuana possession case in
sykeording to Bradford
County Sheriffs Office Capt.
Brad Smith, officers with the
local BUSTED drug task force
were working with the Florida
National Guard Oct.7, surveying
the area via helicopter for signs
of marijuana cultivation.
Amazingly, the Florida Air
National Guard's Counter Drug
Unit was able to spot a single
pot plant being grown in the
backyard of a 1297
East Estelle Street in Starke and
guide ground units there.
Smith said the homeowner
was contacted and further
investigation revealed that
the plant belonged to the
homeowner's son, 29-year-old
Maurice D. Hankerson, who had
a prior felony conviction on his
record for drug crimes.
Agents also found two stolen
firearms while conducting their
investigation, Smith said.
One of the guns was a
.12-gauge shotgun reported
stolen in 1995 by the .Union
County Sheriff's Office. The
second firearm is a 9 mm Tech
9 and was stolen in 2005 in
Bradford County," Smith said.

a rand theft

Times Staff Writer
On Oct. 7, James Edward
Redmond, 36, was arrested for
. grand theft after it was discovered
he had helped himself to money
that had been collected through
various fundraisers to benefit
the Union County Volunteer Fire
According to Fire Chief
Mitch Andrews, the theft was
uncovered after bank personnel
made contact with fire fighter
Ken Owen in regards to the
account being $700 overdrawn.
"Overdrawn? In the back of my
mind, I knew we had only ever
written one check on the account
and should have had something
like $3,000 in the bank."
Several months ago, some
of the county's firefighters
had come to Andrews with the
idea of establishing a nonprofit
organization called the Friends
of the Union County Fire
Department. The sole purpose
of establishing the nonprofit
events to support the volunteers.

Ron L. Lilly, former president
of the North Florida Regional
Chamber of Commerce, was
arrested Oct. 7, nearly a .year
after police began investigating
him following his ouster from
the business organization.
Sheriff Gordon Sniith said the
arrest was "a long time coming."
"He has been accused of
betraying the trust of this
community and will now be
afforded the opportunity to
defen? his actions within the
justice system," Smith said.
Lilly was charged with
fraudulently obtaining property,
according to the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office. The
Stake Police Department,
which oversaw the investigation,
explained Lilly instructed
another chamber employee to
1ssue him more than $5,000 in
additional paychecks.
$8,500 tb another person without
the knowledge or approval of the
chamber's board of governors.
Warren said Lilly also used
chamber funds to purchase a golf
cart from a Gainesville dealer for
$5,800. Lilly reportedly paid in
cash, telling thegolf cart dealer
the money was raised through
chamber events, Warren said.
That cart was later sold to another
person for an unknown amount.
"The total amotmt including
the additional pay checks, the
purchase of the golf cart and
the check written to another
individual is approximately
$19,401," Warren said.
The alleged activity took place
between December 2007 and
May 2008. Lilly was fired in
November later than yeai:
When questions arose, the
board appointed a task force
to look into allegations while
Lilly was placed on unpaid
leave. A week later, the board
fired him and vowed to turn
any information uncovered
over to authorities. The board
had concerns about financial
wrongdoings, and there was also
talk of potential tampering with
the results of the chamber board
When interviewed last

board members were "grasping

Leave a (ap running and it
seems like water is an endless
resource, but look deeper and
experts say the demand for water
is diminishing its supply.
Representatives from the
Suwannee River and St. Johns
River water management districts
held. a joint meeting with the
public at the Bradford County
Library last week to compare
historic records with current
trends and discuss how the two
are working together to develop
plans to protect water resources
in the area.
It was one of several meetings
that have been taking place
throughout both districts..
Water management district
govermng boards are tasked with
the responsibility of making sure
there is water available for all uses
in their districts, including future
uses, and they cannot permit
significant harm to come to
those water resources, according
to David Still, executive director
of the Suwannee River Water
Management District.
Part of seeing that no harm
comes to water resources in
determining minimum flows
and levels for rivers and lakes.
Still said a 2007 study looking at
minimum flows and levels found
there was not enough water in
the Suwannee River Basin to
accommodate future demands.
The districts must complete
water supply assessments every
five years by law. They must
project how many people are
going to be living here and how
much water they will use, then
predict how that water use will
impact the district.
Still said the districts must

cooperate because they are
sharing the same water from
the same aquifer and impacts
from one area affect surrounding
John Goode, a senior scientist
and engineer with the Suwannee
River Water Management
District, spent time helping
the audience grasp the concept
of minimum flows and levels
and why they are important.
The standards are based on the
minimum amount or water that
must be present to prevent harm
to the local system of rivers and
Rather than a set number,
these flows and levels can
fluctuate during the year, and
the ecosystem has adapted to
the natural fluctuations. When
outside forces affect water flow
or levels in a system, that's when
damage can occur.
Minimum flows and levels
are the limits at which further
withdrawal could result in
significant harm to water
resources or ecology, Goode
said. .
The Santa Fe River, which
originates near Keystone Heights,
and its minimum flows were
established by measurements
taken at two local gauges: one
at Graham and the other near
Worthington Springs. There has
been a steady decline in flow
"So there's something going
on out, here that means that the
.Santa Fe, we felt, has reached a
point where we cannot tolerate
or duration of low-flow events,
Goode said.
Carlos Herd, the head
of Suwannee River Water
Management District's water
supply planning effort, discussed

there, Still said, adding that only
the Legislature and sound growth
management policy can bridge
the two. Water use is something
local governments are going to
have to consider as north Florida
grows, he said. ,
Still called the weighing of
economic and environmental
interests a balancing act; both
are important to .how we live.
Though some wanted to ppint to
agriculture or mining as major
offenders, Still said the solution
is not about.picking on one group
or sector.

"We all have responsibility for
water supply, for conservation.
for protection," he said.
Americans are the worst at
overconsumption of water, he
said, comparing to the average

Monitor Editor
For the last year, Clay
School District Coordinator of
Operations Bruce Harvin has
been planning an energy savings
project, which is now estimated
to save the school board as
much as $407,000 per year.
Harvin said last Thursday that
was probably a conservative
The program is fairly
complex in its design but simple
in its technology. Basically the
program is designed to turn
the lights off and keep the
temperature controlled.
For the last year, Harvin
has overseen the installation
of motion detectors in every
portable at all 39 schools in
the district. In addition, energy
The management systems
allow Harvin or others to
monitor and control an etiergy
system like stadium lights
or HVAC units at any given
school. (The thermostats are
nornially set at 75 degrees in
the summer and 68 degrees in
the inter, district wide.) .
From Green Cove Sprmgs,
those temperatures can be
changed as the seasons diange,
or when there's a sudden cold
snap or a hot spell. The'changes
can start from a computer at the
school district's headquarters
or from a staff member's home
computer. ,
The management systems
can also program fixtures to -
go on or off at specific times.
Lights and air conditioners in
every portable on every school
campus in Clay County, for
example, can be programmed
to go off at 5 p.m.
But a big part of the total
package are the motion
detectors in the portables which
can also shut down the lights
and AC automatically when no

"Whatever works."
Now though, with the
district facing intense budget
crunches, and concrete
savings numbers starting to
pile up, the energy program
is getting more serious
Harvin said he had
worked with the three utility
- companies that serve schools
in the district: JEA, Clay
Electric and the Green Cove
Springs utility company.
Clay Electric has been
especially helpful, Harwin
said, since that company
covers around 30 of the
district's schools.
The co-op and the state
recently changed the rules
on utility fee charges for
non-profit organizations. In
some way, recent, problems
the Keystone Recreation
Association had with its
electric bills led the way.
When KRA moved to
Little Rain Lake Park, its
monthly electric bill jumped
from the $400 to $500 paid
at McDavid Park to $2,000
a month and higher at Little
Rain Lake.
After much discussion,
Clay Electric was allowed to
charge a higher per kilowatt
hour fee to a non-profit
Organization, but do away
with the demand charge. The
demand fee is a charge placed
on the user to cover the cost
of the surge when a ball field
full of lights comes on all at
once. Now, utility companies
statewide use the new fee
structure for non, profits,
including schools.
Before doing away with
demand fees for non .profits,
Harvin said, the cost of running
a softball field at KHHS was
$20-$22 per hour. It's now
half that.' Electrical costs for
running the football stadium
once cost $32 per hour and are
now $16 per hour.

The school district's energy
savings program isn't 'perfect
yet, Harvin said. So far, only
the portables have been brought
into the system.
There are event overrides
built, into the management
systems so that if a volleyball
game goes a little longer than
usual, someone at the site can
flip a switch to keep the HVAC
on longer. Sometimes those
overrides don't work.
Harvin is also trying to
convince soft drink companies
to switch to Energystar
machines that are -light on
usage. The companies have
been slow about making the
expensive changeover and with
more than 200 drink machines
in schools all over the county-
it's like paying a monthly bill
to run 200.big refrigerators. To
compensate, Harvin has added
vendingizer units that also rely
on motion detection. Energy
usage to run each soda machine
drops by about half each year, a
potential savings of $32,000 or
so each year.
Harvin said the program has
encouraged other green projects
green teams, recycling, and-
yes- teachers, studt*nts and
staff are remembering to turn
the lights off when they leave
a room. Harvin said that as
he went around putting up the
"Wash your Hands" signs, he
noticed that the lights had been
turned out in most bathrooms.
Harvin expects another boost
in energy savings expenditures,
once the project's numbers are
all in by the second quarter of
next year.
The operations office is
encouraged enough about the
program that it is beginning
to consider other energy
projects-like solar powered
water heaters.
"That may be a little while
away, though," Harvin said.
"They're more expensive."

motion is detected for some
length of time.
The components are starting
to pay off. Bradford and Duval
counties pay $1.07 per square
foot in energy costs, Alachua
County pays $1,34 and St.
Johns pays $1.37. Union pays
$1.20 and Putnam pays 99 cents
per square foot.
As a result of Harvin's
programhoweverClay County
now has the fifth lowest energy
cost per square foot in the state.
Clay pays 97 cents for each of
six million square feet of space
in the district's buildings. The
even thriftier Franklin County
School District pays only 53
cents per square foot, the lowest
in the state.
The project was tested in
Keystone Heights, first at
KHES and then at the local
high school. During the 07-08
school year, Keystone Heights
Elementary School used
approximately 1.03 million
kilowatt hours and in 08-09
KHES used approximately
836,000 kilowatt hours, or
about $21,000 less in energy
In 07-08, Keystone Heights
Jr.-Sr. High School used
approximately 2.6 million
year KHHS used about 2.4
million kilowatt hours-or
about $26,000 less.
Harvin was seen. last week
putting "Wash your Hands" .
signs on all the mirrors in all the
bathrooms around the KHES
campus, or checking to see that
someone else had done so. It
was an HIFil precaution.
"It's something' different
every week," he said.
Harvin wears several hats
in the district: he is also
responsible for safety and
security, water and sewer, pest
control, indoor air quality and
custodial services at all 39 of
thedistrict's schools.(Keystone

An energy savings program Bruce Hatvin manages for the

Heights residents also know
him as one of five members of
the city council.)
Energy. sayings vary from
school to school, he said.
McRae's energy costs went
slightly higher this year. When
Harvin and Principal Marcus
Dooley looked at the school
schedule, they fearned- that
scheduling more summer
reading programs to beat the
FCAT scores came with an
energy cost.
Harvin's dattibase of
energy savings as growing.
He now knows that a $43
motion detector will have a
life expectancy of maybe two

years, but will pay for itself in
energy savings within the first
nine months. .
So far, the costs of the motion.
detectors, computer programs
and other upgrades, have come
from a $144,000 set aside in
last year's budget'
Harvin said some school
district personnel were initially
skeptical about making
expenditures for energy
How do you know the
savings haven't come from
teachers and students being
more conscientious about
turning lights off?" he was
asked. His response was,

no firearm. They are issued a
handheld radio when on duty.
"We are the eyes and ears of
the sheriffs office," Figueroa
said. 'tWe observe and report."
The volunteers help patrol
neighborhoods when deputies
must be elsewhere. They call
in the activities they see, but do
-not take action themselves,
The volunteers are assigned
to areas thist see the most
activity. County-wide there are
more than 200 volunteers in
the program. In northern parts
of Clay County some groups
have their own neighborhood
golf carts.
When the Lake Region
VIP program has a mmimum
of 10 to 12 volunteers, the
group becomes eligible for an
automobile for patrols. Mayor
Mary Lou Hildreth is working
to get additional volunteers and
the auto.


Around noon last Saturday,
Figueroa said they had spoken
with four potential volunteers
so far-Emergency Planner John
Ward said-last-Monday that the
group had signed up at least
12 new members by the end of
the day. .
Dominguez said they hope
to expand the. program so that
volunteers can patrol outside
the city limits as well. Volunteer
schedules add the designated
areas they patrol will depend
on the number of volunteers
available. The more, the better.
While Keystone Heights has
its own brands of crime, the
C.R. 315C and Smith Lake

old Joshua Roth was all boy
and all energy.
At what was billed as a Joshua
Roth Appreciation Day, the
guest of honor came across the
tarmac pointing to this classic
auto then to that one. He kept up
a chatter at his grandfather who
was clearly wearing down by
mid-afternoon. Joshua covered
his ears at DJ Rockin' Rosco's
loud music.
For most six year olds these
acts might not be remarkable.
,In Joshua's case, some have.
called it a miracle.
Joshua was born with a
quartet of birth defects: spina

:hydrocepakus and facial-.
paratisis. Before he was born,
the doctors predicted that after
birth he would do no more
than lie in bed in a vegetative
state throughout his life. They
suggested abortion as one of
several options, which his
parents declined.
After he was born, Joshua
came to the attention- of..the
Stake Shrine Club. An adjunct
group called the Road Runners
arranged to have him and
his mother taken to a Shrine
hospital in Tampa. Since then,
he has had repeated surgeries.

be provided by Clay Electric

Committee Chair Dr. Tom
Farmer said he would ask
church members to bake cakes
to sell as a fundraiser. But
' no birthday party would be
complete without a birthday
cake of its own: Laura Buttry
was given the task of coming
up with one.

Also on hand will be four
bands and a sound system,
a Moonwalk, two bounce
houses and a slide. Buttry
volunteered to attempt to get a
kids' train. Mary Lou Hildreth

'This fund was -established

said. "The guys wanted to have

for things like cookouts during

The Friends of the Union
County Fire Department was
established, complete with a
federal tax identification number,
bylaws and a board of directors:
Ken Owens as president, Jim
Rooney as vice president, Mark
Hamlin as secretary and James
Redmond as treasurer. As
treasurer, Redmond opened a

at Mercantile Bank and also a
post office box in Lake Butler. -

Following Redmond's arrest,
Andrews said he held a drill at
the fire department and spoke to
the volunteers about the incident
that had taken place. He asked
them if they wanted to try to
return money to everyone that
had, in good faith, given to the
fire department.
"Everyone said they wanted
to push on, move forward and
recoup the money the best they
could. They all agreed they were
not going to let one person ruin
the whole department," Andrews
said. "The golf tournament is
one way we can give back to the
community that has supported us
and the event will still take place
in February."
More than anything, Andrews
said he wants the community to
know that this kind of conduct
will not be tolerated. He praises

year when we the first
year of this terrible recession
(it should have been called the
beginning of a depression),
they passed a budget without
any consideration for the

themselves to receive a three-
percent raise and ignored the
pleas of some citizens to give
them some tax relief.
Again this year they held
their budget meeting at 5:30
p.m. on Monday, knowing full
well that most people who are
working would be ori their way
home and not able to make it
to the meeting. To my
knowledge, not one of these
commissioners ever talked to

disgruntled administrators, and
find themselves without
employment when the problem
may lie elsewhere. Mudra was
So why was Bowden sent
When Bowden was a
teenager, he suffered with
rheumatic fever and spent
.some 18 months in a hospital,
or at home, but his recovery
\vas complete and he became
an outstanding quarterback at
Birmingham's Woodlawn
High School. His youthful
dreams were fulfilled as he
filled the quarterback position
for the University of Alabama.
He graduated from Howard
College-now Samford
University-in 1953.
After graduating, Bowden
pursued employment in
college sports, at times
coaching football, basketball
and baseball before settling in
at Howard College as head
football coach. In four seasons
(1959-62), he compiled a 31-6
record. .
As mentioned earlier,
Bowden relocated to
Tallahassee to work as an
assistant to Peterson at FSU-
He departed FSU in 1965 to
become an assistant coach at
West Virginia University, a
which time he became the
head coach. He compiled a 42-
26 record while serving as
head coach through 1975-
The football program at FSU
was in shambles and really
didn't have a great deal to
offer the 46-year-old Bowden,
but school officials had been
favorably impressed with his
work under Peterson. Research
doesn't reveal whether
Bowden or FSU made the first

move, but.Bowden's joining
with FSU to rebuild a defunct
football program was the best
possible association for both
since the school's football
program had bottomed out and
could.sink no lower. Also, the
Bowden family needed to put
down roots and. provide
stability for their six children.
,Bowden's vision for
building a successful football
empire at FSU is difficult to
understand given the poor
record of prior years, but even
though he had been successful
in West Virginja, his heart
belonged to the Southland.
Although football is played
nationwide, it is in the South
that it reigns as king of all
sports, surpassing baseball lis
America's pitstime. Growing
up in the shadoW of Bear
Bryants Crimson Tide in
Birmingham, and living the

deserves some credit for the

Years 1974-75 found FSU in
desperate straits with coach
Darrell Mudra winning only
four of 22 games. His overall
coaching record of 168-77-3
indicates he was a pretty fair
coach and the losing years
reflected problems other than

that no more families came out

important information that was
made available from different
agencies that are our school

Our young adults need to

The information that was
available helped to inform
parents and their youth 14-21
years of age on how to make
plans for life after high school.
There was also a free spaghetti
dinner, child care, and door
prizes. My hope is that this

as things continue to change

return for a touchdown that
pulled the Tigers within 16-14.
"We had opportunities to
win," Hoard said.
It did not appear as if the
Tigers would have such
opportunities due to an
offensive performance that
Zow termed "embarrassing."
Zow said he and the coaching
staff had a game plan in place
they thought would work. That
plan must have been to throw
the ball because the Tigers
attempted just two runs in the
first half. Alexander completed
.5-of-10 passes and had one
interception, but what hurt
were the passes Alexander
- never got off. He was sacked
five times in the first half for a
loss of 57 yards.
"It was kind of frustrating
because we couldn't get
anything going," said
Alexander, who finished the
night l3-of-24 for l66 yards.
liradford's Jarrod Jackson
and Donnelle Williams each
had a sack on the Tigers' first
possession. That and a penalty
had Union facing fburth-and-
40.TJnion, obviously, planned
to punt the ball, but Alexander,
who was handling those duties,
could not connect with the
ball, with Bradford's Ya'Keem
Griner falling on it at the
Union 22.
it was a good opportunity
for the Tornadoes, *but they
could not pick up a first down,

Union defenders holding

quarterback John Clark to a 4
yard gain on third-and-7.
Tramaine Harris, in place of
the injured Tyler Cubbedge,
attempted a 32-yard field goal,
but it was blocked.
It was a quick three-and-out
for the Union offense, with
Griner and Williams sacking
Alexander for an 8-yard loss
on third down. A successful
punt by the Tigers this time put
the Bradford offense at its own
22-yard line.
Dexter Clayton picked up a
big first down for Bradford on
. third-and-8, taking a pitch
from Clark and scampering 27
yards to the Union 49. Two
more first downs were gained
on runs of 14 and 10 yargs by
Williams and Rodney Mosley,
respectively. Mosley later set
up first and-goal at the 5 when
he took a pitch from Clark and
reversed field for a 21-yard
gain. Mosley got the handoff
from the 5 and sprinted into
the end zone. He added a
successful run on the two-point
0 conversion, putting Bradford
up 8-0 approximately two
minutes into the second
Bradford got the ball right.
back when Griner intercepted a
tipped Alexander pass on the
Tigers' first play following the
ensumg kickoff. That set the
Tornadoes up at the Union 18.
Clark completed a 15-yard
pass to Harris, setting Mosley
up for a 3-yard touchdown run
at the 9:22 mark of the qfIarter.
Mosley, who gained 102 yards
on 16 carries, again found the
end zone on the two-point play
for a 16-0 Bradford lead.
Things did not look good for
the home team, but D.J. Paige

sacked him and forced a
fumble, which Givens scooped
up and took 90 yards the other
way for the Tigers' second
The Tigers seemed to imally
get on track offensively,
opening the second half with a
57-yard scoring drive to take
their first lead of the game,
Alexander completed two
passes for 47 yards to Quen'tin
Johnson. Johnson,, who caught
four passes for 62 yards, gave
,the Tigers first-and-goal at the
10 on the second catch-an
18-yarder. Justin Tyson gained
4 yards on a run before
Alexander scored on a 6-yard
run, giving the Tigers a 21-16
lead approximately three
minutes into the half.
Bradford, though, answered
with a 66-yard scoring drive.
Two runs by Williams netted
12 yards, while a 16-yard run
by Mosley gave the Tornadoes
a first down at the Union 38.
Mosley picked up another first
down on an 8-yard run, while
Ike Carter's 6-yard run set up
first down at the 18. The
Tornadoes were bit with a
holding penalty, but Clayton
broke free up the middle for a
26-yard touchdown run with
4:20 remaining ifi the third
quarter to put Bradford up 22-
. Though Alexander was not
pressured as much in the
second half, he went through a
stretch where he threw
incompletion on five straight
plays. His 7-yard pass to
Tyson, though, converted a
fourth down at the Bradford
45. A 19-yard run by
Alexander moved the J'igers to
the 26, but Alexander was

sacked by Bradford's Jackson
for a 9-yard loss. Two plays
later, Jackson was at it again,
hitting Alexander and causing
a fumble, which was recovered
by Auntrell Jones at the
Bradford 28.
A 17-yard run by Mosley
got the Tornadoes' drive off to
a promising start, but Lonnik
Gosha dropped Carter for a
loss on a second-down play. A
fumbled center-quarterback
exchange on third down forced
Bradford to punt. That's when
Burch's knee hit the ground,
setting up the Tigers' game-
winning drive.
Alexander hooked up with
Bryan Holmes for a 24-yard
gain on first down. On third-
and-8, Alexander completed an
8-yard pass to Adam Cason for
a first-and-goal at the Bradford
4. Tyson's 2-yard run set up
the Alexander touchdown
sneak, which came with 5:07
left in the game.
The Tigers came up big on
defense on Bradford's ensuing
drive. Gosha and Nevin Johns
dropped Clayton for a 4-yard
loss on a second-and-6 play,
while Austin Seager sacked
Clark for a 3-yard loss on third
down. Clark's pass on fourth-
and-13 fell incomplete.
Despite a couple of
penalties, Union was finally
able to run out the clock after
Tyson picked up a first down
on a 15-yard run.
it was real hard,
Alexander said of the win. "It
was tough,! but we pulled it

gave the fans something to
cheer about when he returned
the ensuing kickoff 95 yards
for a touchdown to make it a
16-7 game.
Bradford threatened late in
the half. A 6-yard run by
Williams, coupled with a
personal-foul penalty called on
Union, moved the Tornadoes

to the Union 20-yard line.
Williams then broke a tackle in
the backfield on a 10-yard run
to the 10. He followed that up
with a 7-yard run to the 3.
Union's defense, though,
dumped Williams for a loss of
a yard on second down. Clark
dropped back to pass on third
down, but Kendall Wright
