Notes

Abstract:
The first issue of this ongoing weekly appeared on July 26, 1879 under the title Florida Telegraph. It was published by William Wyatt Moore, a native Floridian and a staunch Democrat. Moore had previously worked for a paper in Tallahassee and had also published newspapers in Jacksonville, Lake City, Cedar Key, and Pensacola. After appearing for a short time as the Weekly Florida Telegraph and reverting back to the Florida Telegraph, the paper’s name was changed to the Starke Telegraph. In 1887, Moore sold a half-interest in the newspaper to I.C. Webb, who became sole owner within a few months and changed its name to the Bradford County Telegraph. In 1893, Eugene S. Matthews, who had previously worked for newspapers in Gainesville and Ocala, purchased the Bradford County Telegraph with Ben J. Farmer, who sold his interest to Matthews five years later. Matthews published the Bradford County Telegraph for the next forty years. He was also elected to the state legislature in 1904, 1907, 1911 and 1923. His son, Eugene L. Matthews, a graduate of Columbia University’s School of Journalism, took over the publication in 1933, matching his father’s record of forty years as publisher. The Bradford County Telegraph continues to the present.

The number , of students
graduating in Bradford County
grew by nearly 2 percent last
school year, although the district
still trails the state average.
Graduation rate is more
important to schools than
ever now that it is one of the"
components that will be used to
help determine how well high
schppls get graded.
Y 4r-to-year comparison is
complicated by'the calculation
of more than one graduation rate.
Since the 1998-99 school year,
the state has tracked students and
counted all diploma recipients as
graduates, including those who
receive standard diplomas as
well as those who receive special
diplomas and GEDs.
In September, the Florida State
Board of Education approved
a new formula for calculating
school grades that uses a
different method for calculating
graduation rates. The approved
method from the National
Governor's Association does not
include GED graduates in the
graduation rate calculation.
Since the U.S. Department of
Education is pushing a uniform
method for determine graduation'
rate among states, the NGA
method has been chosen. Still,
the state released two sets of


' 1.17o

Not including GED graduates
damages the county's graduation
rate, although it doesn't wipe
out the progress -the district is
making from year to year. In
both cases, the district posted
the highest graduation rate in its
five,-year survey.
This year's graduation rate
won't be known until after the


See RATES page 8A;.


This new method of calculating graduation rate does not include students who receive
GEDs, lowering the district's graduation rate overall. Still, the district was able to show

Can Starke electric bills become stable if not exactly low?


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The city of Starke's electric
rates are nothing if not unpre-
dictable, rising and dipping
throughout the year, but it did
spend the summer as one of the
state's least expensive municipal
electric utilities.
Starke began 2009 as the most
expensive city-owned electric
utility, but by September it was
number 19 on the list, accord-
ing to statistics compiled by the
Florida Municipal Electric As-
sociation.
SIn January, the city charged
residential customers $157.90 for
1,000 kilowatt-hours of power,
compared to $131.42 in Septem-
ber.
Bills tended to drop through
April, when they started to go
up again. In July, they fell again.
The most recent report released
is for October, which shows
1,000 kWh of residential power
at $141.45. That made Starke the
eighth most expensive electric
utility in the state.
.While the fuel adjustment
charge-the volatile portion of
the bill-has ranged from around
$55 to almost $82 per 1,000 kWh
during the year, October's report
contains the city's new fixed fuel
adjustment charge of $65.50 per
1,000 kWh.
A fixed charge is supposed to
help stabilize bills from month to
month.
;There is a general dissatisfac-
tion with city electric rates that
occasionally erupts as it did ear-
lier this year when customers
unexpectedly saw * the electric


component
of the their
utility bills
skyrocket,
some by
hundreds of
dollars.
Custom-
ers were told
high bills re-
sulted from a
combination
of the high
price the
city's power
provider, the
Florida Mu-
nicipal Pow-
er Agency,
was paying
for natu-
ral gas and
a penalty
the agency
had to pay
to Florida
Power and
Light for the
unscheduled
usage of its
lines.

Starke's power costs measured year-to-year for 1,000 kilowatt-hours of reslderi.l power,
plus where the 2009 numbers ranked the city among other municipal uiilItles.


As the year progressed gas
price hedging agreements that
did not work in FMPA's favor
have been running out, allowing
the agency to purchase natural
gas a better rates.
In 2008 when natural gas rates
were soaring, FMPA signed
agreements locking in a $10 per
million Btu. That would have
-worked to stabilize power costs
had prices continue to climb, but
unexpectedly the price of natural
gas began to drop. FMPA was
paying $10 per unit, even when
market.cost was less than $3.

LPD Capt. Robert Watkins
canvassed the area looking for
the suspect, who was described
as a white male, approximately
40 years old, with a bald head
ahd a goatee. He was wearing a
whitee T-shirt and blue jeans that
were torn at the knee.
While Waskins searched
the neighborhood around the
school. Officer Kelly - Brown
was searching in and around
businesses, but they could find
no one matching the given
description.
I Bradford County dispatch
was notified of the incident
and investigation, and later that
afternoon, the county used the
CodeRed reverse 911 call system
to notify the public in Lawtey
of the incident. The first call.
went out to 591 numbers at 5:41
p:m. Bradford County Sheriff's
Office Capt. Brad Smith gave a
description of the suspect during
the call and asked that, any
suspicious activity be. reported
by calling 911.
-He also urged parents to talk
to their children about stranger
danger.


With little additional
information, it remains
undetermined if the incident
reported was actually an
abduction attempt, but it
highlights the importance of
teaching kids what to do when
they are approached by strangers
and the need to report suspicious
activity.
It is also important to make
sure your contact number is
included in the CodeRED
database employed to notify the
public of important information.
All individuals and businesses
should log on to the Bradford
County Web site (www.bradford-
co-fla.org) and click on the
CodeRed logo at the bottom of'
the home page. From there they
will be directed to a page where
they can submit the necessary
contact information.
m Those without Internet access
may call Bradford County
Emergency Management at (904)
966-6336, Monday through
Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., to supply
their information over the phone.
Required information includes
name, street address (the physical
address, no post office boxes),
and a primary phone number.
Additional phone numbers can
, �.atzrcd as well.
: All businesses should register,
as well as all individuals, who,
have unlisted phone numbers,
who have changed their phone
number or address within the
past year, and those who use a
cellular phone or VoIP phone as
their primary number.


up and worried about the kids
following the accident, Smith
said, but the rest of the children
were doing surprisingly well.
He credits responders, including
Bradford County EMS, with
calming the kids down very
quickly.
"It's a testament to their
professional'sprf, fpi(ft4 said.
"The other kids were kind of
upbeat, happy, and just kind of
kidding around."
Other responders included
the sheriff's office and Lawtey
Volunteer Fire Department. FHP
covered the crash investigation.
School transportation officials
Richard Sapp and Louette Smith
responded to the scene with the
information needed to begin

FMPA has been locked into the
$10 rate, although the percentage
of gas it must buy at the higher
rate has been falling. The agency
also loaned the city money that
could be used to help stabilize
customer bills.
The city has put in place its
own rate stabilization mecha-
nism. It locked in the fuel adjust-
ment charge at 65.5 cents per
kilowatt, or $65.60 per 1,000
kilowatt-hours. On months the
fuel adjustment is less than that
amount, the excess revenue will
be funneled into a rate stabiliza-
tion fund. On months when the
fuel adjustment exceeds the set

amount, money will be drawn
from the fund to cover the over-

and prevent unexpected spikes,
according to the city.
If the fuel adjustment is set,
then the only variable would be
how much power a residence or
business is using from month to
month.
Natural gas costs have been on
the rise again and were above $5
per million Btu last week, but as

FPL's, which
spent most
of the year
to day hov-
ering around
$106 for
1,000 kilo-
watt-hours
of residential
power.
FPL has
approached
thecityabout
eventually
acquiring
the city's
electric sys-
tem. While
it cannot af-
ford to bail
the city out
of its all-re-
quirements
power con-
tract with
FMPA, there
is a provi-
sion that
would al-
low the city


to purchase a set amount from
FMPA and purchase any addi-
tional power it needs from FPL.
The blended cost of power
from two sources should ben-


efit customers with lower, elec-
tric bills, according to FPL. FPL
would also take over metering,
billing and maintenance work
for the city.
At the end of Starke's power
purchasing contract with FMPA,
FPL would then buy the city util-
ity outright.
There's no agreement on paper
yet for the city to sign as FPL
is still studying the issue.FPL
staff cannot recall the company
acquiring a municipal electric
utility in the past, but interest
has also been expressed in Vero
Beach, although the board there
may not be as eager as Starke.
FPL is in the meantime re-
questing that the Public Service
Commission allow it to raise
its base monthly rate by 30 per-
cent in order to pay for projects,
such as a proposed natural gas
pipeline and 'approved nuclear
plant expansions and solar proj-
ects. FPL is claiming that even
with the rate increase, customers
would see lower bills because of
lower fuel costs and improved
fuel efficiency.
A staff recommendation and
commission vote is expected to
come this month and next.

Editorial: Can Christmas be done with $50?


BY MELISSA PYLE
Telegraph Staff Writer

, This year has been a tough
year economically and for many
people the only jingle they are
hearing is from the leftover
change in their pockets. The
ability of giving gifts to everyone
on the list may pose a challenge,
but isn't impossible. You just
have to know where to look and
what to buy.
Despite the rain and Christmas
season, this past weekend
provided a fertile shopping
ground and according to one
yard sale host, James Griffis,
"Business is the best it's ever
been."
Not allowing the weather to
'detour me, I started my mission:
a $50 Christmas. Just how many,
nice items can you find for $50?
It was a bit of a treasure hunt, but
I returned victorious. The criteria
were simple: nice, gently used or
new items that were comparable
to products currently on store
shelves.
At Griffis' sale I purchased.
a remote control racecar and a
John Deere ball cap. Both items
were new and retail around $10
each. I paid'$5 for both of them.
Second, I found an estate sale.
Everything has to go at an estate


Unique find: Antique cos-
tume jewelry.

Items purchased include:.
Plate rack, cushions,
remote control car, walkie-
talkies, hair clips, Disney
pens, handmade dish
towels, games, train set
and hat.
sale and many of the best items
were gone by 10 a.m., but I still
purchased a set of decorative
plates with the wrought iron plate


James Griffis has been a self-described yard sale career
man on and off for 30 years. He is now retiring due to
health issues and thanks many of his loyal, repeat cus-
tomers for his successful business in Starke.


Give the gift
that children
can't outgrow
Kids can't outgrow it. It won't
wear out. It can't get lost or broken.
And, it doesn't require batteries. A
Florida College Investment Plan is
the perfect holiday gift for a child or
grandchild.
As parents and grandparents
consider what presents to buy
children this holiday season, the
Florida Prepaid College Board
encourages families to put college
savings on their gift list.
According to "Try Christmas
Saving, Not Christmas Shopping,"
a recent Wall Street Journal feature,
the annual spike in spending around
the holidays is about $65 billion
nationwide, or roughly $600 per
household. But the real cost is even
higher, because the true value of
money is what you would have if you
had saved it.
If a family saves that $600 every
year instead of spending it on gifts,
after 10 years they'd probably have
an extra $7,700. After 35 years, it
would add up to $51,000.
Wall Street Journal analysts and
many top financial planners suggest
opening a 529-college savings
plan for each of your children and
letting family and friends know that
contributions of any size would be
terrific gifts.
"Buying toys, video games and
sports equipment is fun, but it's
smart to redirect some of those
dollars to what children will need
for their future, a college education,"
says Tom Wallace, Florida Prepaid
College Board executive director.
"Starting to save for college or
enhancing existing college savings
for your children and grandchildren
may be the most meaningful gift you
give this holiday season."
Give your loved ones something
they'll never outgrow-higher
education. A .Florida College
Investment Plan is the ideal gift
for the holidays and, any special
occasion. Once a child is enrolled in
a Florida College Investment Plan,
friends and family are able to easily
add to help pay for a multitude of
college expenses.
The Florida College Investment
Plan offers a range of investment
options and flexibility that can be
used to pay for qualified higher
education expenses such as fees,
books, off-campus housing and
tuition.
No need to stand in long lines
at the mall, since Florida Prepaid
College Plans' online enrollment is
easy. You can enroll and download a
Florida College Investment Plan gift
certificate foryourchildorgrandchild
online at www.myfloridaprepaid.
com, or call 800-552-GRAD (4723)
to order an enrollment kit in English


or Spanish.
NOTE: The Florida (College
Investment Plan is not a prepaid
plan. Investments in the plan are
not insured or guaraniied, anld you
could lose all o0 a |p )oiio0 of your
investment.
Participation in the plan will be
sold only by means of a Diclosure

Agreement. A copy of each will be
sent upon request. Read them before


rack for $5 (retail around $40)
and a set of four Better Homes
and Gardens chair cushions
for $2 (retail around $10 per
cushion).
Continuing on my journey, I
took a few wrong turns, followed
yard sale signs that must have
passed their expiration dates and
finally decided to cheat a little
and stop in a second hand store.
At Avis' Attic on Madison
Street, there is a large amount of
products, but I only purchased a
Thomas the Train Engine set. It
was new, in the box and retails
for around $40 at the toy store; I
bought it for $9.
Toys are the biggest challenge
when you are yard sale shopping.
Many of the toys are not gently
but over used. I still managed to
find an Operation game (retails
at $20) with all the pieces for a
dollar. Walkie talkies and several
stocking stuffers were purchased
at a sale where the host was
selling items that were sold to
them in bulk.

My favorite purchase was the
antique costume jewelry that may
not have a current store value,
but many people are looking
for something unique that they
can't find at the store. Antique
stores can charge around $20
for costume jewelry pieces, but
my find was $5 for two sets of
earrings and a silver pin.
To sum up my shopping trip,-I
went, I shopped, and I spent less
than $50 on 16 items.
Yard sales, thrift stores and
consignment shops have always
been around the corner, but this
year they may provide some
extra help to everyone who is
struggling to make ends meet.
The money made by the yard
sale host also puts money in their
pockets and gifts under their
trees. Challenge yourself to a
yard sale shopping spree. You
can avoid crowded malls and
the best part about the yard sale,
price tags are negotiatable.

JROTC named an honor unit


The Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps, or JROTC,
program of Bradford County
recently received the prestigious
honor of being designated a
"Honor Unit With Distinction"
after the completion of an
intensive formal inspection by
the| Department Of The Army
and University of Florida Dec. 9.
Hq, 6th Brigade chief inspector
was Arthur Curry. University

ranks inspection was conducted
by Master Sgt. Bill Merrill,
Sgt|. Armondo Vickers and Sgt.
Holmes.
The inspections are held once
every three years and a passing
score is required in order for
the program to continue. 1 .e
BradfordCountyJROTC program
exceeded all expectations.
Curry commended the work
the program has accomplished.
He stated that from the cadet
briefing to platoon drill, this
program demonstrated an
outstanding performance. The
curriculum knowledge was the
most impressive and the'students'
desire to demonstrate their
accomplishments and skills.
The mission of the JROTC
program is to "motivate young
people to be better citizens" and
Curry said the Bradford program
is obviously carrying out that
mission. The inspectors said they
were impressed with the high
caliber of the Bradford cadets
and their ability to perform their
assigned duties. '

Col. Adam Farlow.


Thecadet battal ion commander
this year is Cadet Lt. Col. Adam
Farlow. He has demonstrated
outstanding leadership and
works hard to instill teamwork
in his cadet staff. All of the
.students in the program did an
outstanding job in preparation
for this inspection, which is
equivalent to accreditation for
any other program, said Lt. Col.
David King, instructor for the
program.
Theinspectionconsistedofstaff
briefings by cadets, curriculum
knowledge, participation by
cadets, drill and ceremony,
records administration, color
guard performance, in-ranks
inspection, and public affairs
participation.

Library hosts crafty Christmas program


If you were to ask any of the participants, the Bradford County Public Library's first
ever Holiday Craft Extravaganza was a huge success. The class had 17 crafters and
they all enjoyed learning to make several types of ornaments, refreshments and
making new friends. The program was presented by library staff. Plans are already in
the works for a spring craft program for adults. For more Information on any of the
library's programs please stop by or call the library at 904-368-3911. Pictured above

This is all taking place in their
music and art class, which is
taught by veterann teacher Tony
Buzzella.
Buzzella has been teaching at
Southside for six years, but has
been an educator for-33 years.
Elementary education has been
a pleasant surprise.
"This has been the most
rewarding of any age group,"
said Buzzella, who has taught in
college and high school settings
been an administrator and sat
on the Columbia County School

designed to integrate the students'

improvement to the substantial
progress among Hispanic and
African-American students (up
4.5 percent and 4.1 percent,
respectively), almost double the
2.3 percent increase experienced
by white students since last year.
"Florida's education system
continues to be a rising star in our
nation,andourteachersandschool
leaders should be commended
for their extraordinary efforts,"
said Gov. Charlie Crist. "Our
graduation rate is one of many
recent measurements showing
the progress we are making to
ensure every student is capable
of academic success."
Since 2004-05, Florida's
graduation rate has improved
6.6 percentage points. During
that same time period, African-
American__ -and-- - Hispanic
graduation rates increased by
9.3 percentage points, nearly
doubling the improvements made
by white students.
"These latest results are
extremely encouraging and
representative of the continuing
achievement of- Florida's next
generation of leaders," said
Education Commissioner Dr.
Eric J. Smith. "While there
is still much more work to be
done, I am confident that we
are quickly moving to the point
where reality matches potential
in the academic performance of
our students."


Bradford has a higher rate
than Alachua (66.5 percent) and
Putnam (70.4 percent). Clay's
graduation rate (75.3 percent)
surpasses Bradford,. and Baker
(85.3 percent), Columbia (82
percent) and Union (80.7 percent)
exceeded both Bradford and the
state average.


Drop out rate
improves as well
... Drop out rates are released
at the same time as graduation
rates, but it's important to
note that these are not inverse
indicators. They measure two
different sets of data. A 76.3
percent graduation rate does not
make the state's dropout rate 23.7
percent.
Graduation rate measures a
group of students who enter ninth
grade and graduate high school
-at the same time.
Florida's dropout rate is the
percentage of ninth- through
twelfth-grade dropouts compared
to the ninth- through twelfth-
grade total, year-long student
.membership.
\A dropout is defined as a
student who withdraws from
school for any of several reasons
without transferring to another
school, home education program
or adult education program.
Drop out rate measures all
ninth- through 12"-graders in
a particular year who meet that
definition.
Florida's dropout rate
continued its decline this year to


a record low of 2.3 percent. This
is a decrease of 0.3 percentage
points compared to last year
and 0.7 points since 2004-05.
Compared to last year, Hispanic
and African-American students
decreased their dropout rate by
0.6 and 0.2 percentage points,
respectively. White students
decreased their dropout rate by
0.3 percentage points during the
same time period.
The five-year, comparison
of the dropout rate in Bradford
County is as follows:


Year
2004-05
2005-06

Bradford County's dropout rate
hit a five-year low falling nearly
two percent from-the previous
year.
The dropout rate in the county
for white students was 2.9
percent, 3.9 percent for black
students, 2.8 percent for Hispanic
students, and 0.0 percent for
Asian, Native American, and
multiracial students.
Bradford's dropout rate is still
higher that the state average, as
well as Alachua (2.6 percent),
Baker (2.0 percent), Clay (1.2
percent), Columbia (0.7 percent)
and Union (1.0 percent) counties.
Putnam had a slightly higher
dropout rate (3.3 percent).

Shands on

seasonal flu

A COLUMN FROM SHANDS
STARKE
By Emily Shaughnessy

The seasonal flu is monitored
in the United States from October
through mid-May. The Centers
for Disease Control and other
organizations collect, analyze,
and disseminate information
about flu activity.
According to the CDC, "Each
year in the United States on
average, 5 percent to 20 percent
of the population gets the flu;
on average, more than 200,000
people are hospitalized from
flu-related complications, and;


mascot, a rival softball team who
also has a shark mascot wanted to
order some for its players. From
that order and word of mouth
advertising, Chitty's business
began to expand.
The jewelry starts-its journey
as bottle caps that are ordered
from a distributor. Then Chitty
begins the transformation from
commonplace to out of the
ordinary.
Each piece is primed, painted
and imprinted with an image
that either is designed by Chitty
or a found image that can be
downloaded. These 'are all cut
to fit the small tops of the bottle
caps. The entire process can take
up to five or six hours, but Chitty
says that she-can produce around
200 at a time.
She does credit much of her
success to her family and late


about 36,000 people die from
flu-related causes."
Some individuals are more
at risk than others from flu
complications, but everyone is
at risk for getting the virus or
passing it on to other people.
Since vaccination is the, most
effective tool to prevent the
spread of influenza, health care
workers are in an important
position to set a good example by
getting vaccinated.
As of Dec. 1, Shands
Starke achieved a 69 percent

caps become necklaces, key
chains and Chitty has also added
ornaments for the holidays. They
can display a favorite team,slogan
or decorative pattern. When
asked what the most popular
one is Chitty said, "Tebow. The
young girls love to wear the one
that says, 'Future Mrs. Tebow'." .
Despite all the new business,
Chitty isn't ready to quit her day
job. She usually sells her designs
* at local school and church
fundraisers. Chitty donates a
portion of the proceeds to the
organization. All these events
have led to more orders and new
opportunities.
Her next big event is for the
American Heart Association, in
February. Chitty is also launching
a Web site and anticipates more
business in the future.

This outstanding compliance
demonstrates the positive steps
our employees take to protect
everyone's health--patients,
staff, families and employees.
Shands Starke employees and
patients have received continual
education, including hand
hygiene, covering their cough,
and other health practices. Staff
and visitors have been instructed
that it takes about two weeks for

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area



Starke man's handiwork part of TV show spectacle


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
For four days, David Harper
worked to construct three large
guitars out of wood, only to


watch them be destroyed.
Rather than striking a sour
note, it was music to his ears,
so to speak, as he played a part
in the spectacle that was the
demolition of a Gainesville


house by the "Extreme
Makeover: Home Edition"
crew on Dec. 8.
"That was awesome," said
Harper, a Starke resident who
operates a wood shop at his


home.
Members of the -ABC
television show spent a week
in Gainesville, building a new
house for Tobin and Jill
Wagstaff and their four
children. The Wagstaffs run a
nonprofit music school, so the
"Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition" crew turned the
demolition of the Wagstaff's
former house into a sort of a
rock concert, with fireworks
and host Ty Pennington
playing the part of a guitarist.
Pennington stood on the roof
of the house alongside a 17-


foot tall guitar constructed of
2-by-4 pieces of yellow pine
by Harper.
Harper estimated the guitar
weighed 600 pounds.
"We didn't weigh it, but it
took eight of us to get it out of
here," Harper said from his
shop on Dec. 10.
The original plan was for the
guitar to smash through the
roof of the old house. Instead,
it was simply used as a prop.
Harper . constructed two
other guitars that were eight 8
feet tall and- weighed
approximately 100 pounds.


Those were strapped to the
sides of excavators that tore
the house down.
When it was all said and
done, Harper's guitars met the
same fate as a Pete Townshend
guitar during a violent
conclusion to a concert by the
Who, They were destroyed
along with the house.
Haper admitted 'there was a
little bit of hesitation on his
part when he was asked to
build something that would

Kiwanis tournament

returns to Bradford


Tournament, which
was last played in
2002, offers
spectators the
chance to win prizes

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It is the chance to enjoy,
basketball and give support to
the basketball program at
Bradford High School as a
Christmas tournament hosted
by the Kiwanis Club of Starke
returns after a six-year
absence.
The Lake Area McDonald's
Christmas Basketball
Tournament is scheduled for
Monday-Tuesday, Dec. 21-22.
Admission is $5 at the door.
Tournament passes are
available for $10 and are good
for both nights.
Proceeds will benefit the
BHS basketball program.
Bradford will be joined by
Orlando Bishop Moore,
Williston and Camden County
(Ga.). Williston and Camden
will play each other at 6 p.m.
on Dec. 21, followed by
Bradford against Bishop
Moore at 7:45 p.m. The
tournament consolation game
will be played at 6 p.m. on
Dec. 22, followed by the
championship game at 7:45
p.m.
"This is definitely not a
tournament put together to
ensure Bradford a victory,"
said Kiwanis member and
tournament co-chair Terry
Vaughan, who played a large
role in the tournament's
original run.
Standing out among the field
is a Williston team that
advanced to the Class 3A


regional finals last year. Every
starter returns from that team,
which compiled a record of
21-9.
"That's going to be a
challenge if we do get an
opportunity to play them,"
Bradford head coach Traavis
Chandler said.
Chandler said he did not
know much about Bishop
Moore other than the Hornets
went 13-13 last season. Going
.500 is no indication of how
good Bishop Moore is, though,
Chandler said since the
Hornets are playing against
some tough competition in
Orlando and the surrounding
area.
"You can't go by their
record," Chandler said.
As for Camden County,
Chandler expects a physical,
yet talented Wildcats team.
That is based on the
assumption several football
players will be part of the
team's makeup. Camden
recently won its third state
championship in football in the
last seven years.
"It's going to be a very, very
interesting tournament,"
Chandler said.
Chandler, a 2002 BHS
graduate, has fond memories
of the Kiwanis tournament,
both as a spectator and as a
player. Bringing the
tournament back was
something he sought to do
when he was hired as head
coach, so he approached
Vaughan about the idea.
Vaughan was all for it and
knew the other members of the
Kiwanis Club would be, too, if
the school was willing to
support the event.

Growing up in the Great Depression: 2 locals' stories-


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Special to the Telegraph
With the nation's
unemployment hovering at
around 10 percent, -more than
100 bank failures in the last
two years, and a shrinking
economy, many people are
asking if things can get worse.
The answer is, "yes." In fact,
they've already been worse.
From 1929 to 1939, the
unemployment rate in the
United States peaked at 25
percent. In 1933 alone, more
than 4,000 U.S. banks failed,
and the size of the U.S.
economy in 1933 was roughly
two-thirds of 1929 output.
e. Hard times now are a
Fraction of:the struggles in the
730s. Virginia Darby and Patsy
ISi lcox, two women who were
feared during the Great
;Depression, offered , their
insights of that decade.
The first thing Darby
remembers about the Great
.Depression was turning off the
lights at night.,
"We had electricity in our
homess" she recalled, "but we
jIso had kerosene lamps and
Ave would use them instead of
:the electric lights to save a
little money."

high school years as Virginia

now stands. As a child of the
Great Depression, the belt-
tightening at home was one of
the biggest w ays she witnessed
the economic. slowdown.
While Darby's ftimil: was
riding out the downturn by
burning kerosene at night, 12
miles north in Lawtey, another
family was surviving the
Depression by selling
petroleum derivative.
Patsy Roberts was the
daughter of a Lawtey grocer,
George Roberts Sr. In 1942,
she married Vernon Silcox, but
in the 1930s, she and her
family , weathered the
Depression in Lawtey at her
father's store, selling kerosene,
groceries, fertilizer and other
goods near where Lawtey's
Fast Track convenience store
now stands.
Darby and Silcox are now
friends, but they did not know
one another growing. up, and
even though one lived in
Lawtey and the other in Starke,
they both had similar
recollections of the decade
from 1929-1939.'
The household frugality
Darby recalled was most
noticeable in family gardens.
"Everybody had one, and a


strawberry pa~ci ." ilcox said.
.Relief g[d'lens. also known
as depresshtst gardens,
subsistence gardens and
welfare plots, commonly
consisted of backyard patches,
which provided households
with provisions. By 1933, the
concept was being packaged
by nonprofit groups and
marketed to urban areas.
Organizations like the
Employment Relief
Commission and Family
Welfare Society produced
publications and trained urban
dwellers to cultivate their own
produce. One government
publication :alulnd ,tbt in
1934, more than i .'illen
such gardens were created
utilizing nearly 400,000 acre ,
of land.
Local governments took the
concept further by cultivating
vacant lots within cities and
donating supplies to gardening
programs.
Finally, the Federal
Emergency Relief
Administration, maturated the
idea by paying workers to
cultivate plots, and distributing
produce to those in need.
Silcox and Darby did not
recall government involvement
in local gardening initiatives,
but each did remember
instances where federal


intervention brought relief to
their families.
Darby lived with an aunt and
uncle during her high school
years. Uncle J.F. (Frank)
Colley had a blacksmith shop
near the corner of Broadway
and Center streets. The
business suffered during the
'30s, but Colley was able to
stave off financial hardship by
landing a job at Gold Head
Branch State Park. .
From 1935 through 1940,
Franklin Roosevelt's Civilian


Conservation (C',;"- employed
local workers to. construct
camp SP-5 within the park,
now located on S.R. 21
between Keystone Heights and
Middleburg.
Silcox recalled her maternal
grandfather, John Tatum of
DeLand, was wiped out by his
bank's failure in the early '30s.
However, the citrus grower
and real estate investor had
one parcel of land that was
saved from creditors because it
was titled in his wife's name

The governor and Virginia Darby

SBY DAN HILDEBRAN
Special to the Telegraph


- In the fall of 1969, Virginia
Darby was working in the
Bradford County courthouse.
As deputy clerk of the court,
iber role was to process court
15aperwork, secure evidence in
The courtroom and swear in the
jury.
In the middle of court
proceedings one November
day, someone entered the
courtroom and handed her a
note. She had a phone call.
Darby passed -the note to
Circuit Judge George L.
Patten, who glanced at the
paper and ordered a recess,
excusing the deputy clerk from
the courtroom. Darby then
walked downstairs to her
office, where she was handed
the phone.
. "Hello, Mrs. Darby, this is
(36N. Kirk."
This wasn't the first time
Florida's chief executive
telephoned Darby, and it
wouldn't be the last. He had
pulled her out of court with
two other phone calls.
' "Is there anything I can do
to change your mind," the
governor asked.
* There was. Darby wanted
-the job. She had been working
in the county clerk's office
since 1953, when her husband,
Charles Darby, was elected
Bradford County clerk and
asked her to help in the office.
After her husband's death in
October 1969, Virginia Darby
was approached by community
leaders to continue her
husband's work. The Governor
said he was willing to consider
her for the position, but there
wvas one catch.
- Claude Kirk was the first
Florida Republican governor
since reconstruction. He
wanted Darby to switch parties
before we would consider her
for the appointment.
It was out of the question.
"I was a Democrat, and I
was going to stay a Democrat,"
Darby said.
' By December, the governor
finally gave up on Darby and
:found a suitable replacement.


Virginia Darby
Is shown taking

old manager at Jackson

.He, too, had been a Democrat,
but became a Republican in
the fall of 1969. His first act in
office was to declare that
everyone with a job in the
clerk's office would keep their.
job, including Darby. For the
next 21 years, Darby remained
in the office she loved and had
once again recovered from
personal tragedy.
Virginia Fugate was born in
Levy County, where her father,
Ruben, was the tax collector.
The family already had four
children when Virginia, along
with her twin sister Katie, was
born. One month, after the
twins were born, their mother
died. Virginia was sent to
Archer to live with her
maternal grandparents, John
and Molly Robinson. Katie
eventually wound up in Starke
with an aunt and uncle-Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Colley.
In 1933, when they were 12,
the twins were reunited. The
family planned to open a
bakery in Starke, and the
Robinsons rented a house on
Walnut Street. The Robinsons
needed to make a trip to
Atlanta to meet with an
investor, and Virginia wanted
to go along.

For CJ. Spiller, there was no
letdown.
.The senior Clemson running
back and return specialist had
one of his best games of the
season after being named, the
ACC Player of the Year,
rushing for 233 yards and

against . Georgia Tech. He
scored on runs of 3, 9, 36 and
41 yards, while also putting his
team in position for another
score with his 54-yard run to
the Georgia Tech 9-yard line.
SDespite his team's loss,
Stiller was named the game's
MVP, which capped a big

Tornadoes take

district win over UC


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Treyonte Covington and
Yakeem Griner, who each
scored 14 points, helped the
Bradford boys' basketball
team build a 20-point lead en
route to a 50-37 District 4-3A
win over Union County Dec.
12 in Lake Butler.
Bradford (3-3 prior to Dec.
14) improved to 2-1 in the
district, while the Tigers (2-4
prior to Dec. 14) fell to 1-3.
The Tigers, who struggled
from the field for most of the
game, made the game a little
interesting in the fourth
quarter, outscoring Bradford
17-10. A basket by Marcus
Albritton pulled Union within
46-37 with a.little more than a
minute left in the game, but
that would be the last score for
the Tigers. Bradford's


Tremaine Harris made a
couple of free throws and
grabbed a couple of defensive
rebounds following missed 3-
point attempts by Union to
help the Tornadoes hold the
Tigers at bay.
Union made just six field
goals in the first three quarters,
but had five in the final
quarter, with Albritton scoring
seven points to " lead a
comeback against a lead that
proved insurmountable.
Covington scored seven
points for Bradford in the first
quarter, which was still close
to some extent despite the
Tigers' struggles from the
field. Chris Alexander made a
3-pointer for Union to tie the

last piece of legislation passed
during Franklin Roosevelt's
"Hundred Dlays" initiative in
1933. It provided low interest
loans to farmers. The program
has undergone several changes
and revisions since the '30s,
but is still working today.
Tatum's plight also revealed
a pattern. For children who
grew up during the '30s, the
Great Depression appeared to
have had a more severe impact
on their grandparents than on
their parents.
"This is before FDIC
insurance, so if you had your
money in a bank thpt failed,
you lost it all," Silcox said.
Many older couples, who
had, accumulated assets and
then harbored cash in
uninsured deposits, saw those
deposits vanish.
Silcox believes her paternal
grandfather, Enoch \ Jefferson
Roberts, a successful
turpentine operator in Charlton
County, Ga., also lost money
in a bank bust. Before he
migrated to Lawtey from the
Folkston area, Silcox believes
he at least partially liquidated
his timber holdings, banking
the proceeds and then losing
them due to a bank failure.
Failing credit markets also
affected the Darbys. In 1933,
the family saw a business
opportunity in Starke. The
town had no bakery. However,
because of locally tight credit,
the family's best chance for
financing appeared to be an
investor in Atlanta.
In August, the grandparents,
along with two other family
members, left Starke for the
Georgia Capitol to meet with
the investor, but a truck,
parked on a foggy road near
Baldwin, ended the trip and the
lives of the car's occupants.

the Great Depression did
impact their lives, both women
say'the country's economy was
not something they thought
about often, ,
"We were more concerned
about having fun," Darby said.
Silcox added that while she
was growing up, her family
appeared to ride out the
Depression fine. Her father's
grocery operated until just
before his death in the 1960s.
Both women say that while
living through the '30s, their
exposure to hard times were
limited to flashes and hints:
catching a glimpse of cash
passing between family
members, giving hobos a
handout of canned food and
eavesdropping on pieces of


whispered stories.
Darby and Silcox also
acknowledged that most of the
major forces that shaped the
Depression never made it to
north Florida. The Dust Bowl,
over-leveraged stock market
accounts and incdistrial
unemployment devastated
other parts of the country, but
had virtually no impact in
Bradford County. Darby said,
"We didn't lose much because
we didn't have much to begin
with."
Silcox added that she
couldn't recall a single
business that went bust in
Lawtey during the '30s. "But,
of course," she added, "there
were very few businesses in
Lawtey at all."

There is no joy in Mudville


When I first heard of the
travails of' Tiger Woods, I
thought of the poem "Casey at
the Bat," and for a good
reason. The poem was written
in 1888 by -Ernest Lawrence
Thayer, using the pen name,
"Phin," at a time when
baseball was moving toward
its zenith as America's favorite
pastime.
The poem tells the story of
the Mudville baseball team
coming to bat in the bottom of
the ninth inning with the score
4-2 in favor of the opposition.
The first two Mudville batters,
Cooney and Barrows, "died at
first," and the situation was
bleak, to say the least, but
Yogi Berra's words, "It ain't
over until its over," became
operational as Flynn came to,
bat and hit a single, followed
by Jimmy Blake hitting a
double.
"Then from 5,000 throats
and more there rose a lusty
yell; it rumbled through the
valley, it rattled in the dell; it
knocked upon the mountain
and recoiled upon the flat, for
Casey, mighty Casey, was
advancing to the bat."
Although the odds were
long, loyal Mudville fans felt
confident that the. Mighty
Casey would hit a home run,
successfully ending the game.
Casey let two pitches go by,
which were called "strikes,"
but who cared? Casey could
still drive one over the fence.
"Oh, somewhere in this
favored land the sun is shining
bright; the band is playing
somewhere, and somewhere

somewhere men are laughing,

Dear Editor:
I would like to personally
thank Mrs. Lisa Tatum for her
hard work and dedication in
organizing the Winter
Wonderland Dance sponsored
by the BHS band on Dec. 5,
2009, at the Starke Golf and
Country Club. Mrs. Tatum
made, sure the club was
decorated just beautifully,
fitting in with the winter
wonderland theme.
I would like to also thank
the Tatum brothers for
allowing the band to dance in
their club. Mrs. Tatum also set
it up for Mrs. Thornton to
come in and take pictures of
the teens all dressed up in their
winter dresses, coats and ties,
and looking so pretty and
debonair.
There were so many
businesses that participated in
donating gifts. The teens were
so excited to have their names
called and a package presented
with a gift from businesses all
over our community. We are
so blessed in Bradford to have
so many people willing to help
our schools with monetary
donations.


there is no joy in Mudville-
mighty Casey has struck out."
There is a sadness in our
land today that goes farr,
beyond the world of golf.
Tiger Woods, the squeaky-
clean young man with the
world in his grasp has struck
out. His long record of
honesty, integrity and clean
living was carefully
cultivated-and believed-by
his public, but revealed as a
facade by recent events,
including his admission of
"transgressions" and lack of
candor in explaining the
vehicle accident at 2 a.m.
Woods is entitled to a
private life, but only up to a
certain extent. Everyone who
rises far above his peers in any
field of endeavor becomes a
public figure, subject to
scrutiny 'by the news media in
its many forms and
individuals. Although he has
been uniquely successful in
protecting his private, life,
living in an expensive, gated
community, and/or living
aboard his yacht, whose name
is. "Privacy," he should have-
known the impossibility of
remaining unnoticed while
squiring a woman other than
his wife.
He has lost the respect of
fans, and although he has
apologized publicly to Elin, his
wife, and to the public, the
albatross he hung around his
neck will remain for a lifetime.
His marriage is endangered,
with Elin's buying a home in
Sweden recently, creating
rumors of a separation, or
possible divorce. The breaking
up of a marriage has been
known to affect a player's golf

A wind of

Dear Editor:
Have you noticed a wind of
change blowing through 2009?
There is a grassroots activity
happening all around us that
has not been there since the
American Revolution. I first
saw it in April at the tax day
tea parties in Ocala, Starke and
Gainesville. Ordinary,
taxpaying citizens took time
out of their busy schedules to
go out and try to make a
difference in the direction our
country is going. We have seen
people take to the streets over
and over throughout the year.
We have seen all sorts of
rallies on all sorts of issues.

game, and Woods may
possibly lose his outstanding
ability to hit a golf ball.
But even if' his game
remains solid, sponsors may
see him as less influential in
hawking their products.
Unrelated to this situation,
Woods has already lost his
Buick contract, and if he were
to lose his relationship with
Nike,, he would be hurting.
* (Nike has since publicly stated
it will continue its relationship
with Woods.) Woods is at a
crossroads, and regardless of
the route taken, .irreversible
damage has been done to his
reputation.
Like a dog shaking a rag
doll, the news media will not
let go of this newsworthy
event until every nuance has
been explored and published.
People in public life should
know that every facet, every
movement in life, will rise to
the surface with lasting results.
In this instance, Woods has let
down a multitude of followers
who have placed him high on a
pedestal on which the higher
one climbs, the harder the fall.
I am truly sorry for Tiger
Woods' transgressions
because, in addition to being
among the greatest of golfers,
he was the epitome of moral
turpitude, friendly, generous
and outgoing. He was a role
model for young men, an icon,
the son and brother of every
man, raised by his own
bootstraps.
It's Mudville all over again
throughout the golfing world,
and the great one has struck
out.
By Buster Rahn, Telegraph
editorialist


public gatherings, what are not
seen are the meetings when
citizens come together face to
face to share their talents to
find solutions to the real
problems facing America.
These -meetings-'may or -may
not be linked to a knownW
group. Some are advertised,
some are by invitation only,
and some are rather secret.
In the past month, I have
attended meetings as far away
as Bradenton and as near as
Tower Road in Gainesville.
Meetings are held in people's
homes, in back rooms of stores
and restaurants, and in public
meeting places like the Tower
Road Library. I hosted one of
these meetings on my farm in
Hawthorne, and 40 people
trudged through mud and rain
to learn from Congressional
candidates, local sheriffs,
financial experts and other
ordinary citizens.
I am proud to say, as an
American, that all these
meetings are very civil. I have
encountered no desire to do'
any thing more radical than to
return to our Constitutional
roots. The wind of change is
blowing � through ' the
grassroots. People are off the
sofa, meeting face to face,
learning and sharing in an
effort to preserve America for
our children and
grandchildren.

packed in a difficult economy
by generous donors. This
community is sharing love and
hope with extremely poor
children who will receive this
gift and Gospel story booklet
for the very first time. An
amazing number of churches,
civic groups, and businesses
participated again this year.
Posters could be seen in many
stores and . restaurants. The
Lake Region Monitor' ran
articles . about the endeavor.
Beall's Outlet stores donated
empty shoe boxes to wrap and
fill. The Salvation Army
donated 1,200 stuffed ladybugs
to multiply shoe boxes at the
Keystone Heights Relay
Center, Gainesville Collection
Center, and the Atlanta
Processing Center.
McDonald's gave hundreds of
Happy Meal toys as fillers.
Trinity Baptist Church
provided its facilities for the
local Relay Center to collect
the shoe boxes; 52 smiling
volunteers served there for
eight days. Johhny's Barbecue
promoted the shoe box drop-
off on their business sign.
Friendship Bible Church
encouraged us all to pray for
Operation Christmas Child.on
their church sign. Bryan's Ace
Hardware helped to transport
140 cartons of beautiful shoe
boxes to the Gainesville
Collection Center.
I can't forget to mention
why thete were so many shoe
6oxes to transport! Twenty-six
" chul8!9 'du0'bi, i.j" civic'

three families in the
community sacrificially

Things are
looking down,
not up
Dear Editor:
I hope that I'm wrong, but
some of the things that this
administration is doing can
make one think that they are
headed toward being a socialist
state. Obama and Congress
have romanced and twisted
enough arms until they have
enough votes to have a debate
on health care. Who knows
what deals were made by this
administration to satisfy their
cronies to get their vote.


I think that this president ,
and. Congress have goiW
overboard with their spending .,
There is a saying that fools aiif.
money soon part. It's lookifg.0
more that way every day.;:_-
think it's a critical time 'when
the government takes over
health care and shoves it down
our throats whether we likei,t
or not.
Look what they have sp6th'
on the two wars. In the 8 ,
years that these two wars ha,"
gone on, trillions of dollAr'
have been spent. We also g6 ,
our hard-earned tax dollars :t2b-
countries that hate everything-'
America stands for.
People have bashed Bush for'
his spending, but his spendfi.''"
is a drop in the bucket to what
Obama has done in just a shrt'"
time. It took Bush eight years,
to accomplish his deficit-""
Obama has accomplished f1Tfi]
in 11 months. Personally, I fel
like his spending our money'1''$
the only thing Obama has be4r
Bush at.
Obama has said, "I'll get driibI
job done." I think he betif ,
start before our country goa"'
bankrupt. It's mighty easy
when you are spending othV",
people's money. Remembarn�
we, as taxpayers, are thfe|
backbone of this great country,.
How can we, the people, let
one man and his cult-lik&�
administration form t3M
country into a socialist stalb..
On our currency, we say, '1i�
God we trust," so let's put qot'9
full trust in Him and trust tthft
his way of running a country
will change soon. . f

"A Doctor's Confession to the Public..."
Dear friend,
Let me tell you a story... .
Twenty years ago I was a young man in my mid 20's and life is good, but I woke up one morning
and couldn't get out of bed. I had back pain before but this was different. My low back was "locked up" �
and pain is shooting down my spine if I try to move. Even though I'm in a lot of pain I make it to my
family doctor's office and am prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxers and told to "Take it easy for a
while". That didn't help much:' Finally, a friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The
chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then "adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn't hurt, it
actually felt good. I got relief, and I was happy again. It worked so well that I went to Chiropractic
College myself.
It's strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their back and neck problems. Also
they come to me with their headaches, migraines, chronic pain, sciatica, shoulder/arm pain, carpal tunnel
syndrome, whiplash from car accidents, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few.
Several times a day patients thank me for'helping them with their health problems. But I can't really take the credit. My
confession is that I've never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure,
and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It's as simple as that!
You Benefit from an Amazing Offer - Look, I know you're smart. You want to get to the cause of your problems, not just cover
them up with drugs. When you bring in this article, you will receive my entire new patient exam for $37. That's an exam, x-rays and a
report of the findings... the whole ball of wax. This can normally cost up to $250 or more, but please call righ' away because this offer
expires at the end of the month, and I don't want ydu to miss out. By the way, 'further care" is very affordable and you'll be happy to
know that I have affordable family plans. You see, I'm not trying to seduce you to come see me with this low start up fee, then to only
make it up with high fees after that. "Further Care" is very important to consider when making your choice of doctor. High costs can
add up very quickly.
My assistants are Cheryl and Vivian, and they are both really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our
best make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called STARKE CHIROPRACTIC and
it is at 225 S. Orange St. (We are across from Winn Dixie). Our phone number is 904-368-0011. Call Cheryl, Vivian or me today for
an appointment. We can help you. Thank you,.Martin Slaughter, D.C. Chiropractic Physician.

Stewart-led Tigers rally to beat BHS.


BY CLIFF SM ELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Anbreyal Stewart scored 12
of her game-high 26 points in
the third quarter as the Union
County girls' basketball team,
despite a dreadful shooting
performance in the first half,
rallied from an eight-point
deficit to defeat host Bradford
45-36 in a District 4-3A
matchup Dec. 11I in Starke.
The Tigers (5-4 prior to Dec.
15) improved to 4-0 in the
district despite a first half in
which they made just four of
their 22 field-goal attempts.
Union head coach Curtis
Mesnard credited defense and
free-throw shooting for the
turnaround. Bradford (2-7, 1-2
in District 4 prior to Dec. 15)
committed seven turnovers
during a stretch in which it was
outscored 13-2 by the Tigers
and made just three field goals
in the fourth quarter.
Stewart was 6-of-6 at the
foul line in the third quarter
and 14-of-17 overall.
"We made some adjustments
in the second half, pressuring
the ball the full length of the
court," Mesnard said. "We
attacked the zone, and they got
into a little foul trouble.
"Free throws won the game
for us. I always stress to the
girls, free throw shooting and
rebounding will win a lot of
ball games."
It was Bradford's Chelsea
Jackson who was doing the
rebounding in the first half as
she helped the Tornadoes build
a 21-13 lead. She grabbed
seven boards and also had
eight points.
Jackson finished with 10
points overall, as did teammate
Lakia Bright.
The Tornadoes scored the
first eight points of the game
as Union missed its first eight
shot attempts. Bright, Jackson
and Quinessa Portis each made
a free throw, while La'Quisha
Williams made a 3-pointer to
put Bradford up 6-0. A
rebound putback by Jackson
increased the lead before


-I ~aU


Stewart, with 1:22 remaining
in the first quarter, drove to the
basket for the Tigers' first
points.
A jumper by Bright
following a backcourt turnover
helped send the Tornadoes into
the second quarter up 10-4.
They scored the first five
points of the second quarter,
getting three points from
Jackson.
Union, though, outscored the
Tornadoes 9-6 the rest'of the
quarter. Stewart had seven
points during that stretch,
including a jump shot in traffic
that accounted for the final
points of the half.
Jackson had a rebound score
for Bradford to start the third
quarter, but that was one of the
few bright .spots for the
Tornadoes in . the quarter.
Union's Lashae Mitchell
answered Jackson's score, then
came up with a steal that led to
a basket by Stewart. A 3-
pointer by- Shakela Griffin cut
Bradford's Ilad to 25-22.
A steal by Stewart led to her
own basket, making it a one-
point game. Stewart's two free
throws at the 2:36 mark gave
Union its first lead at 26-25.
, The Tigers took a five-point
lead into the fourth quarter.
Williams and Loretta Jackson
kept Bradford within that
margin with a. couple of free
throws and a layup,
"respectively, in the early part
of the quarter, but the
Tornadoes were 2-of-10 from
the field the rest of the way.
Still, a basket by Bright made
it a three-point game before
the Tigers closed the game out
by outscoring Bradford 9-3.
Union's Lareesa Jackson
scored four points down the
stretch, including two free
throws with 1:38 remaining to
put the Tigers up 41-34.

David Harper's guitars were
a smash, so to speak, as part of
the surrounding "Extreme

activities in Gainesville, but
so, too, were desserts made by
Starke restaurant owner/caterer
Chrissy Allen.
Allen volunteered to make
desserts for two nights of the
'TV show crew's weeklong
stay in Gainesville. Basically,
she was to supply enough for
300 people-crew members
and, volunteers-each night.
The first night, she took 27
cakes and four sheet pans of
bread pudding. It was all gone
in two hours.

Still, the day was "exciting,"
said : Harper, who also
expressed his admiration for
the "Extreme Makeover:
