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.

Lake Region

men jailed

on multiple

burglaries

Phillip Jacob Kuntz, 18, and
Michael Brion Brown, 19, were
arrested on Dec. 29 by 'Clay
County Sheriff's Office Detec-
tive Marc Gadt for as many as a
dozen Lake Region burglaries.
Most CCSO arrest reports are
one or two pages long-theirs
took 36 pages to cover burglar-
ies believed to be perpetrated by
both men at multiple addresses.
Gadt.said on Monday that on
Dec. 7, he was given informa-
tion that Kuntz had a stolen four-
wheeler in his back yard. While
Gadt was at the address, Kuntz
called home to say the police
were coming and he wouldn't
be home for a while. Gadt said
Kuntz instructed his mother not
to let the police in his room.
Detective Gadt got a search
warrant and found a large col-
lection of stolen goods. Using
photographs of the evidence,
over the next month, the detec-
tive connected some of the goods
with their owners. Meanwhile,
Kuntz was arrested for the stolen
four-wheeler
Brown turned himself in at
the Clay County Jail on Dec.
18. Listed as the co-defendant,
Brown allegedly described in
some detail the items he and
Kuntz had stolen and agreed to
ride with officers to.point out
homes they had targeted.
During the ride, Brown alleg-
edly pointed out 11 additional
homes. Several of,those were va-
cation homes where some thefts
had not yet been reported.
Gadt learned that a pressure
washer and one TV set had been
sold in the Waldo Flea Market
parking lot. Another TV had
been traded for drugs.
On Dec. 29, Detective Gadt
visited Kuntz in jail, read his
Miranda. rights and charged
him and Brown with additional
crimes.
The list of locations includes at
least three homes on Silver Sands
S and Caribbean Circles, with more
:htfts on Gadara Road, Overlook
Drive and other Lake Region ad-
dresses.
One burglarized victim was
himself incarcerated in the state
prison system when the theft oc-
curred.As Christmas approached,
another out-of-town victim said
he could not check to see if any-
thing had been stolen for several
da\ s after he was contacted. Us-
ing the photographs, other hom-
eowners identified their posses-
sions.
The two men allegedly gained
entry into the homes through
a variety of means, including
reaching through a doggie door
or forcing open a bathroom win-
dow.
A vacuum cleaner, a weed
eater, a dish washer, silverware,
a space heater, a four-wheeler,
handbags, a comforter, a televi-
sion set, a toaster, a coffee mak-
er, a bottle of Kahlua, coins and a
long list of additional household
items were taken.
Kuntz is being charged with
10 counts of burglary, 10 counts
of grand theft and one count
of petit theft. Brown is being
charged with six counts of bur-
glary, five counts of grand theft
and one count of petit theft. Bail
for each has been set at a total of
$75,000.


Baker CO charged with child sexual battery


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A Bradford County man has been ar-
rested for having sex with a child and
possession of child pornography.
The defendant, Steven K. Crews, 35,
was an employee of the Baker County
Sheriff's Office where he was a correc-
tional officer.
In a press conference held Monday in
Starke, .Bradford County Sheriff Gor-
don Smith and Baker County Sheriff
Joey Dobson said it's sad when they
have to arrest one of their own for
crimes such as this.
"It's always sad to come before you
and let you know someone in the same
profession as us has committed such a
heinous crime on children," Smith said.
"It's very heartbreaking that I have to
come before you today and make that
announcement."
There is an ongoing investigation into
similar crimes in other jurisdictions,
Smith said. Bradford is working hand


Crews


in hand with the Baker County Sheriff's


Office, and as of Monday, they were
also trying to contact the appropriate
law enforcement agency in Virginia.
According to BCSO Capt. Brad
Smith, Crews admitted to crimes in all
three areas over the course of several
years, beginning when the victim was
under the age of 12. Separate charges
are anticipated in each jurisdiction.
The crimes came to light on Jan. 3,
when a family member turned a com-
puter disk over to the sheriff's office
that contained images of a sexual act
between Crews and the victim. There
was additional child pornography in the
form of photographs and videos, not all
of it depicting the child in question.
The unlabeled disk was reportedly
discovered by accident when the indi-
vidual was looking for-family photos.
Crews was arrested at his Bradford
County residence on Sunday and au-
thorities discovered even more illegal
pornography in the home, according to
Capt. Smith.
It was unclear to authorities whether


Bank robber nabbed in Putnam Co.


The man who authorities believe
robbed Capital City Bank in Starke
Dec. 22 has been apprehended in Cres-
cent City, according to Starke Police
Department Capt. Barry Warren.
James Lee Early, 51, of St. Augustine
was placed in custody by the Crescent
City Police Department on Jan. 5.
Early is a suspect in the Starke rob-
bery, the robbery of the M&S Bank in
Hawthorne on Dec. 28 and the robbery
of the Bank of America in Bunnell on
Dec. 31.
Capt. Warren said that employees in
the 11 Federal Bank in Crescent City
had previously recognized the photos
of the Starke bank robber as the same
man who had been in their bank ear-
lier on Dec. 22. The man did not rob
the Crescent City Bank on that date,
but when employees saw the photo of
the Starke suspect, they reviewed their
surveillance video and found the same
man in line at one of their tellers on that
day. They reported his presence to au-
thorities.
On Jan. 5, the same man was again
seen at the 1" Federal Bank, this time
in the parking lot. Employees called
police. The Crescent City Police De-
partment responded and arrested Early
after a brief chase. Early allegedly had a
wig and a hat and was carrying what ap-
peared to be the same type of electronic
device used in the other bank robber-
ies.
Investigators from the Starke Police


Early

Department went to Crescent City and
obtained a photo lineup. Early was
picked out of the lineup and positively
identified by witnesses as the same man
wvho had robbed Capital City Bank in
Starke.
In all three robberies, the suspect told
the teller not to touch or do anything
as he placed an unknown wired device
on the counter resembling a potential
bomb. Early was carrying a similar de-
vice when he was apprehended in Cres-


cent City.
Early is currently being charged with
attempted robbery in Crescent City.
Capt. Warren said agents from the Fed-
eral Bureau of Investigation were on
their way to Crescent City Tuesday to
interrogate Early. He said the FBI has
indicated they will seek a federal indict-
ment against Early in the Capital City
robbery.
Capt: Warren said the multi-agency
investigation is still continuing, but
stated that additional local, state and
federal charges may well be filed.
Early has an extensive criminal re-
cord. He was released from Madison
Correctional Institution in May of 2009.
He has been in an out of Florida prisons
since he was first incarcerated in 1975.
Charges on his record progressed from
check fraud, to grand theft, to cocaine
possession and sale, to grand theft auto
to aggravated battery and armed bur-
glary.
Capt. Warren said authorities are
happy that Early will likely be taken off-
the street by these charges.
"We at the Starke Police Department
are excited for the citizens of, not only
our community but every community
in this subject's reach," said Capt. War-
ren. "His incarceration history indicates
a non-stop pattern of disrespecting not
only property by means of fraud, bur-
glary and theft, but his history also in-
cludes assaults with weapons."


Crews had produced the additional por-
nographic material or downloaded it
from the Internet. Anyone who believes
they have information regarding this
case or additional victims is encour-
aged to contact the sheriff's office at
904-966-6380.
"We want to investigate it extensive-
ly and fully to find out if there are any
other victims out there," Sheriff Smith
said. "I hope and pray to God there isn't,
but if there is, we want to know."
Sheriff Dobson said Crews had been
working as a correctional officer in his
office since May 2009, but he was fired
on Monday. Prior to that he worked for
Baker Correctional Institution, New
River Correctional Institution and an
institution in Virginia.
Crews is charged with sexual battery
on a child age 12 or younger and pos-
session of a photograph or recording of
a sex performance by a child. Bond was
set at $200,000 after Crews was booked
in the Bradford County Jail.




Funding to

create jobs,

pay salaries

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Bradford County was briefed
Monday on money available
through the regional workforce
board that will pay for new em-
ployees.
Up to $200 million in federal
money will be available, and the
state intends to use the funding to
bolster business and put as many
as 25,000 Floridians back to
work-at least through Sept. 30.
The back-to-work program is
an incentive for public, private
and nonprofit employers to fill
positions held vacant and to cre-
ate new ones.
Representatives from county
government and the school sys-
tem were among those present
for the workshop in which Flor-
idaWorks Executive Director
Angela Pate detailed the pro-
gram.
"What it will do is pay salaries
for people between now and the
end of the program, which is cur-
rently scheduled to be Sept. 30,"
Pate said, adding that a program
extension is possible if the fed-
eral government decides to allo-
cate additional funding down the
line.
Until that decision is made.
the state agencies responsible for
spending that money, including
the regional workforce boards,
are trying to get the word out to
the unemployed and potential
employers because any unspent
dollars have to be sent right back
to Washington.
To be eligible to apply for a
job under this program, an indi-
vidual must be receiving some
form of Temporary Assistance
for Needy Families or at least be
eligible to receive those benefits.
(Pate said many are eligible but
.do not seek public assistance.)
That means you must be a par-
ent with child younger than 18
whose family income is less than
200 percent of the poverty level.
For a family of four, 200 percent
of the poverty level is an annual
salary of $44,100.
Since they have no income, the
unemployed parents automati-
cally qualify.
Job seekers apply through
FloridaWorks and the agency de-
termines their eligibility and re-
fers them to employers who have
vacancies listed. Employers can
also refer potential hires to Flor-
idaWorks to see if they qualify to
have their positions funded under
the program.
"This is a huge deal as far as
we're" concerned. This is a lot of
people that are going to be eli-

Last month the school district hon-
ored two special volunteers for their
service to Bradford High School.
BHS Principal Doug Thoburn said a
lot of people within the school and the
community come together to make the
school great, and one of those people is
volunteer Anna Ruth Johnson.
Thoburn alsojoked she was the mean-
est woman he's ever met. Relating the
funny story of their first encounter, the
principal said he showed up at his first
BHS football game only to be grabbed
past the gate by Johnson who demanded'
to know where his money was.
"I think I ended up giving her $20
just to be safe," he said.
"This young lady is at cdc' ,ihine.
and if you walk through the door, you
can bet she's going to get your money,"
he, added, even those who try to give
her a hard time.
Thoburn just wanteU to say in front of
the school board how much he appreci-
ates her and has grown to love her in a
short time.
Next, Thoburn and school resource
officer Sherri Mann recognized Jim
Sansing. Mann joked she had to lie to
him to get him to attend the meeting
so he would be present for the recogni-
tion.
She said Sansing does a lot for her.

Parrish coming to Bradford full time


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

EMS Director Allen Par-
rish has resigned his position in
Inion (County and is coming to
work for Bradford County full
time.
Parrish, \who has held the posi-
tion in Union County for 10 years
no\\. began filling is an interim
director for Bradford County in
20)8. He then formally took over
leadership the emergency medi-
cal services for both counties.
Parrish informed Union Coun-
ty Chair Karen Cossey on Dec.
28 of his decision to resign ef-
fective Jan. 26. He told the Brad-
ford County Commission Jan.
4 that his decision is not in any
way based on any negative oc-
currence in Union County or on
financial considerations.
He said he was appreciative of
the opportunity to come to work
for Bradford County full time, a
decision he made with his family
after much consideration.
"I'm excited about the oppor-
tunity and the development of the
seN ice here in Bradford County,
and the people I work with here
ha\e been really good," he said.'
Bradford commissioners ex-
pressed their pride in Parrish and
the job he has done for the coun-
ty, and expressed their gratitude
for U!nion County's cooperation
as \ell. Commissioner Doyle
Thomas said he wanted to make
sure that Bradford continues to
cooperate w ith Union County and
pro\ ide any assistance it can.
County Manager Brad Carter

.concurred and also confirmed
that increased EMS revenue
would help pay the portion of
Parrish's salary no longer being
covered by Union County.
After spending a total of 15
years working for EMS in Union
County and building that agency,
Parrish said he intends to contin-
ue working with them.
"Mr. Carter has allowed me
that leeway, and we're going to
make sure \'e continue to work
closely together," he said.
Gene Raulerson, a 29-year
veteran paramedic, has been ap-
pointed to scrve as interim direc-
tor in Union County. Raulerson
once served as interim director
prior to Parrish being appointed
to the position 10 years ago. Par-


rish, himself, trained under Raul-
crson during his early years with
the county.
"This was not an overnight
decision, but something I've
been considering for about two
months now," Parrish later said.
"The opportunity presented it-
self, and I assure you there is no
way I would have ever made this
decision had I not known Union
County would be left in good
hands."
Because of Raulerson's exper-
tise and the other staff already
in place in Union County, Par-
rish said he doesn't expect that
citizens will even notice a differ-
ence. That includes no interrup-
tion of the mutual aid both coun-
ties offer each other. Bradford
has a full-time truck in Iawtey
that provides assistance in the
Raiford area, and Union provides
the same for Bradford County's'
Brooker area.
"Each of the board members
have continued to provide sup-
port to me and the department
of emergency medical services.
Your prudent leadership and
willingness to progress in this
critical area of public service has
enabled the citizens fW Uhion
County to receive emergency
medical response that is second
to none in the state of Florida,"
he wrote.
Parrish will continue to serve
as joint director for both coun-
ties until his last official day with
Union County on Jan. 26.

BC Sheriff off to FBI academy


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Bradford County Sheriff Gor-
don Smith has been reflecting
on his first year in the office, but
he isn't resting on his laurels. Of
late. he's been shaping up and
hitting the books in anticipation
of joining the next class at the
FBI National Academy.
The 10-week professional im-
provement academy will take
Ihim to Quantico. Va., where
lie will be among around 250
lai\ enforcement officers from
around the world.
Smith will be completing
graduate level work toward his
master's degree and challenging
his fitness level. According to
the FBI, officers participate in
a wide range of leadership and
specialized training, and they
share ideas, techniques, and ex-
periences with each other, cre-
ating lifelong partnerships that
span state and national lines.
Smith will be the third sheriff
from Bradford County to attend
the academy, and he was chosen
during his first term in office. In-
terested officers cannot just sign
up; they must be nominated and
selected. They are chosen based


on rank, character, leadership.
knowledge and physical pre-
paredness.
"It's quite an honor, profes-
sionally and personally," Smith
said. It's the top academy in the
world, he said, and he will be
there working alongside individ-
uals from 22 different countries.
He's looking forward to meeting
people and building relationships
that could benefit the county
down the line.
In preparation, he's writing
a 15-page paper covering some
old homicide cases he's worked
over the years, a paper he will
present to colleagues at the acad-
emy. He's eager to learn from his
peers and delve into curriculum
that will cover budgeting, man-
agement, communication, tech-
nology, forensics and more.
All expenses outside of travel
to and from the academy are cov-
ered by the FBI.
Smith has also been dropping
quite a bit of weight- more than
40 pounds-mostly by avoiding
carbs in his diet and getting a lot
more exercise.
"It's not so much the academ-
ics, I think it's the physical part
that's got me more scared than
anything else, but it taught me


that I nccd to get hack in shapc,'"
he said.
In addition to undergoing an-
other physical exam when he
arrives, Smilh, at 43, will par-
ticipate in fitness challenges four
times a week, t\\o hours a day.
()nly a few select individual
ever get to participate in this in-
tensive training, and Smith said
he's proud hle \ill he competing
at the top of his field.
While he will be out ouf town,
technology will bridge the gap,
allo\\ing him to carry out his
training in Virginia while tend-
ing to his responsibilities at
home and the sheriff's office. He
will he available via phone and
video conference, a tool he said
he could even use to do homc-
work with his kids. He will also
be traveling home multiple times
over the next few weeks as well.
"Bradford C(ountyi comes first
before anything," said the sheriff
who sa\s lie's never been away
from home lor more than 15

Grant accepted for family nutrition program


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The community, and students
in particular, should soon be able
to receive family nutrition educa-
tion thanks to a grant the county
is receiving from the University
of Florida.
Bradford Extension Director
Tim Wilson introduced Kimber-
ly Klinger, state program coor-
dinator for the Family Nutrition
Program, the nutrition education
component of the federal food
stamp program.
The target audience are those
participants in the food stamp
program, or in Florida's case,
those who are eligible for the
program but do not participate.
According to Klinger, the state
has a high nonparticipation rate
in the program, though many
more are eligible.
"We teach at a variety of com-
munity locations. Most of our
work is done through the schools,
specifically schools with at least
51 percent of the children who
participate in the free or reduced-
price lunch program," she said.


But Klinger added they teach
anywhere they can connect to
their target audience.
The education focus is on di-
etary quality and physical activ-
ity, food safety and security, and
food resource management-or
how to shop healthfully on a
budget.
Because lower cost food can
often be lower quality food, the
health poorer families can be dis-
proportionately impacted by in-
ferior choices. Participants have
been found to make better choic-
es like increasing their consump-
tion of fruits and vegetables and
getting more exercise. Students
who learn better habits can take
what they've learned home and
expose the rest of the family to
that knowledge.
Other than schools, frequent
community partners include
health departments, preschool
programs, libraries, adult educa-
tion and after-school programs,
bqys and girls clubs, senior
groups, etc.
Klinger said $50,000 would be
brought to the county to start up
the program. That money would


for a full-time program assistant
and for program materials. The
program assistant would \work
out of the local extension office
and supervised locally.
Although a 50 percent match is
required, there \\ill be no direct
cost to the county. One way the
match is met is by counting the
time teachers contribute to fol-
lowing up on the lessons taught
by the program assistant. A \aliue
is placed on that commitment of
time in order to generate the re-
quired localimatch.
Wilson, who said a number
of county's in north east Florida
were not participating, met \\ith
Klinger and others from the uni-
versity'and sa\\ the grant as a
way to bring this imiporlant edu-
cation to ir'atldford C'uni\y.
'T'hei' p'roiim is fuindd hb both
state and federal dollars. In 2()09,
nearly X$8.4 million w\as allocated
fol family nutrition.
The county commission unani-
mously accepted the local grant.
The next step will be developing
relationships \\ith local schools
for the implementation of the
program.


Rabies alert issued in Clay County


Nancy Mills, the administrator
of Clay County Health Depart-
ment has issued a rabies alert for
the Keystone Heights 32656 zip
code, south of Gold Head State
Park. This is in response to a rac-
coon that recently tested positive
for rabies.
Residents and visitors in Clay
County should be aware that ra-
bies is present in the wild animal
population and domestic animals
are at risk if not vaccinated. The
public, is asked to maintain a
heightened awareness that rabies
is active in Clay County. Alerts
are designed to increase aware-
ness to the public. This alert
should not give a false sense of
security to areas that have not
been named as under this alert.
The recent rabies alert is for 60
days.
An'animal with rabies could
infect other wild animals or do-
mestic animals that have not
been vaccinated against rabies.
All domestic animals should be
vaccinated against rabies and all
wildlife contact should be avoid-
ed, particularly raccoons, bats,


foxes, skunks, otters, bobcats
and coyotes.
Rabies is a disease of the ner-
vous system and is fatal to warm-
blooded animals and humans.
The only treatment for human
exposure to rabies is rabies spe-
cific immune globulin and ra-
bies immunization. Appropriate
treatment started soon after the
exposure, will protect an exposed
person from the disease.
The following advice is is-
sued:
* All pets should have cur-
rent rabies immunizations. Clay
* County Animal Care and Con-
trol is having a low cost rabies
clinic Jan. 23, 8 a.m. to noon, at
the shelter, 3984 S.R. 16, Penney
Farms. For more information call
S904-269-6342.
* Secure outside garbage in
covered containers to avoid at-
tracting wild animals.
* Do not leave pet food outside.
This also attracts other animals.
* For questions regarding the
health of an animal, contact a
veterinarian.
.* Veterinarian staff and animal


control staff should be alert for
animals encountered with signs
suspicious for rabies and use ap-
propriate precautions, especially
when working with animals that
have not been vaccinated.
* Persons who have been bitten
.or scratched by wild or domestic
animals should seek medical at-
tention and report the injury to
the Clay County Animal Control
at 904-269-6342.
* Rabies is preventable when
treatment is provided in a timely
manner.
* Avoid contact with all wild-
life. especially raccoons, bats
and foxes.
* No animal is too .young to
have rabies.
* For general questions per-
taining to animals, contact the
Clay countyy Animal Control.
For further information on
rabies, go to the Florida Depart-
ment o' Health Web site, vwwv.
doh.state.fl.us, or contact Clay
County Health Department at

Sheriff Gordon Smith and Bear Bryan present a check to Superintendent Beth Moore
for nearly $35,000 in school security funding.


Funds presented for school security


SBY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Sheriff Gordon Smith recently
presented an early Christmas
present to the Bradford County
School Board in the form of a
check for nearly $35,000.
The sheriff was quick to point
out, however, that the contribu-
tion was not his doing. Instead,
credit went to Bear Bryan, who
has been working to improve
school security.
In 2007, the sheriff's office
secured a grant from the Depart-
ment of Criminal Justice Office
of Community-Oriented Polic-
ing. That grant is known as the
Secure Our Schools, or SOS,
grant, and BCSO was one of only
seven agencies in the state to se-
cure it.


The original grant period ex-
tended from Aug. 1,2007, to July
31,2009, and it was later extend-
ed to February 2010. Smith said
it required a 50 percent match, to
which the sheriff's office pledged
more than $58,000. Combined
with the grant award, the district
had $116,000 to spend toward
school emergency management
planning and database develop-
ment, including digital mapping
of the public schools, which is
being finished up right now.
Critical incident planning'in-
volving school officials, law
enforcement and the public took
place, and there were drills to
test the plans. In 2009, Bryan re-
quested a grant budget modifica-
tion that has allowed the district
to purchase bus routing software,
which among other things, helps


the district- be aware of where
known sex offenders are living
when it designated bus stop loca-
tions.
The additional money was also
spent on fencing and locks at the
high school, Starke Elementary
and the Bradford-Union Career
Technical Center.
Smith and Bryan symbolically
presented the additional $35,000.
to Superintendent Beth Moore
in the form of a large check last
month, and then handed her the
real check.
Smith went on to discuss fi-
nancial seizures from drug deal-
ers that have provided additional
revenue that the sheriff's office
intends to spend on community
education. That $9,500 was pre-
sented to the Bradford County
Education Foundation, he said.


New law sends bad drivers back to school


The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles and Florida Highway Pa-
trol is reminding motorists of a
new law that goes ilo'iff'ect this

Iff-ective Jan. I, drivers w\ho
are found to be at fault in three
crashes within a 36-month period
will be required to successfully
complete a department-approved
driver improvement course that
includes behind-the-wheel train-
ing and an assessment of their
driving ability.
"In an effort to make our
roads safer', those who display
a pattern of poor driving ability
or judgment will be required to
complete a driver improvement
course," said DHSMV Executive

Railroad freight traffic through Bradford could triple


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Special to the Telegraph


A hill passed last month by the
Florida Legislature is likely to
increase railroad freight traffic
through Bradford County by at
least 50 percent, and could triple
the number of freight cars pass-
ngm 'through Lawtey, Starke and
Halmpton in coming years.
SunRail is a plan that would
build a commuter railroad from
DeLand to Orlando. At a pro-
posed cost of $1.2 billion, the
proposal failed during the 2008
and 2009 legislative sessions.
However, during a special ses-
sion in December 2009, a bill
authorizing SunRail passed and
was soon thereafter signed into
law by Gov. Charlie Crist. Un-
der the plan, the State of Florida
will purchase 61.5 miles of CSX
transportation's A-line, track
that runs from Jacksonville,
through Orlando, and use those
rails to haul passengers from
Orlando's northern suburbs to
downtown.
The freight traffic now moving
on the A-line, will be re-routed to
CSX's other north-south corridor,
the S-line, which slices through
eastern Bradford County.
In addition to the Florida East
Coast railway, which begins in
Jacksonville, and follows U.S. 1
to Miami, two other north-south
rail arteries traverse the Sunshine
Stale. First, the CSX A-line,
which prior to the 1967 merger
between Atlantic Coast Line and
Seaboard Coast Line, was the
property of Atlantic Coast Line.
From Jacksonville, the A-line
shadows U.S. 17, through Or-
ange Park, Green Cove Springs,


Palatka, DeLand, and Orlando.
The second rail, known as the
S-line, named after the former
Seabord Coast Line, also runs
through Jacksonville, and darts
west to Baldwin, before bending
south through Bradford County,
Hawthorne, Ocala, Wildwood
and Lakeland.
In 2004, representatives of
CSX and Florida's Department
of Transportation started nego-
tiations to transfer ownership of
a 61.5-mile piece of the A-line
to the state, from DeLand to
Poinciana,just south of Orlando,
for the development of a central
Florida passenger rail service.
In 2007, the two parties signed
agreements that would transfer
the section to the state, and make
improvements to the S-line, to
handle additional freight traffic.
But the deal had to be ap-
proved by the legislature and
governor, and during the regular
legislative sessions of 2008 and
2009, State Sen. Paula Dockery,
a Republican from Lakeland,
emerged as the primary opponent
of the project. Dockery's con-
stituents, who share the S-Line
with Bradford County, feared
the increased freight traffic on
the western route would cripple
downtown Lakeland. Public op-
position to the project peaked in
the spring of 2008, when nearly
100 protesters picketed a down-
town Lakeland park.
How much the SunRail deal
would increase freight traffic on
the S-line has always been a point
of disagreement between Lake-
land leaders and CSX. In 2008,
around 16 trains a day made their
way up and down the western
route. A spokesman for the rail-


Major north-south CSX
railways through Florida.
The eastern A-line passes
through Jacksonville,
Green Cove Springs,
Palatka, DeLand and
Orlando. The western
S-line passes through
Jacksonville, Baldwin,
Bradford County, Ocala and
Lakeland.
road told Lakeland officials that
SunRail would add around four
trains a day to the corridor.
But a transition agreement
signed by CSX and DOT in 2007
identified 10 trains (eight daily
trains) it planned to re-route from
the A-line to the S-line-a 50
percent increase over 2008 aver-
age traffic. Lakeland officials fo-
cused on a study that reported the
S-line had the capacity to support
54 trains a day, and combined


with CSX's public statements
that it would put as many trains
on the S-line as possible, Lake-
land leaders claimed SunRail
could triple the amount of freight
traffic on the S-line.
And the railroad has an in-
centive to re-route the trains as
quickly as possible. According
to its contract with the state, as
soon as the 10 trains cited in
the 2007 transition agreement
start traveling through Bradford
County, CSX can collect $25
million of the total $432 million
it was promised in the deal.
Because of the recession that
began in December 2007, CSX's
freight volume has plummeted
since 2008, potentially reducing
both the number and length of
trains traveling through Bradford
County.
In 2008, SunRail died in the
Florida Senate, largely due to
opposition from Florida's trial
lawyers, because the bill granted
CSX immunity from civil litiga-
tion along the A-line. During the
2009 regular session, the propos-
al failed again, mainly because of
Florida's budget crunch, and the
fact that the state's existing com-
muter train system in South Flor-
ida was struggling financially.
But later in the year, two of
SunRail's primary backers, Or-
lando Mayor Buddy Dyer and
U.S. Congressman John Mica,
said they would try again to
make SunRail a reality. Mica
told a group of Orlando business
leaders that CSX had agreed to
renegotiate the liability agree-
ment that doomed the plan in
2008. He also claimed to have
lined up millions in federal fund-
ing for the project.


Meanwhile the mayor also ac-
tively pushed the project, claim-
ing to have won over Florida
CPO and gubernatorial candidate
Alex Sink. Dyer began woo-
ing another influential opponent
of SunRail: the AFL-CIO. The
union had opposed the plan, cit-
ing potential union job losses for
railroad workers.
In the fall of 2009, a federal
stimulus package containing bil-
lions of dollars for passenger rail
projects enticed Tallahassee to
take one more look at SunRail.
Crist called a special legislative
session for.. December to again
reconsider the central Florida
project, and also to prop up South
Florida's struggling commuter
rail service, TriRail.
Dockery remained opposed
to the bill. But Dyer, Mica and
Florida Transportation Secretary
Stephanie Kopelousos persuaded
the railroad to make some con-
cessions to the union, and Dock-
ery's allies, the trial lawyers and
the AFL-CIO, dropped its oppo-
sition to the project.
The legislature approved the
bill authorizing SunRail in De-
cember.
How many more trains will
come through Bradford County
because of SunRail is an open
question. But there is no doubt
there will be more trains, and
likely longer trains. Also, addi-
tional train traffic often means
slower trains. So the SunRail
project, a political victory for
Orlando, may become a serious
economic challenge to Bradford
County in the years to come.

gible'" Pate said.
Employers in the public and
nonprofit sectors can hire anyone
who falls into that category and
the government will pay that new
employee's salary through Sept.
30. Pate said. Private employers
can do the same with the stipula-
tion that they continue to employ
those hires beyond Sept. 30.
Employers can download in-
formation, participation forms
and :budgeting worksheets at
www .floridaworksonline.com to
learn; more about participating
and estimating their costs. The
program won't pay for every-
thing associated with hiring new
employees, but it will pay for a
lot, including money for salaries
and !training costs. Employers
just need to apply to get positions
funded.
Salaries are capped at $40,000,
but exceptions will be made on a


case-by-case basis with adequate
justification of the salary for the
position and an explanation of
why the position is needed.
Some employers may stick to
hiring based on need, while oth-
ers may get creative and hire po-
sitions they might not have oth-
erwise. For example, Pate said
she's heard talk that Gainesville
may hire street artists in musi-
cians to increase traffic and busi-
ness downtown. Other ideas have
included environmental cleanup,
home weatherization, etc. Even
FloridaWorks plans on making
hires through the program.
"This is the time. You don't
get opportunities very often in
your lifetime like this to get
something accomplished," Pate
said. "I'm looking at a lot of
things that I just never seem to
be able to get around to get done.
... In addition, I'm looking out-
side the box at other things I just
never would have even been able
to consider before."
The program is still a work in


progress, so employers will have
to work closely with Florida-
Works as details are ironed out.
For example, there are still ques-
tions about reporting require-
ments, Pate said, but the agency
will be collecting information
to submit to the state to draw
down additional funding over the
course of the program.
Bradford County job
seekers can go online at www.

download a participation

eligibility form) or visit the local

Local employers interested
in hiring under the program can

phone at 904-964-5278, in addi-


tion to researching further inlor-
mation online.
Jan. 15 is the deadline for the
first round of funding, so inter-
ested employers should contact
FloridaWorks now.
According to the Agenc) lor
Workforce Innovation, Florida's
seasonally adjusted unenmplo\-
ment rate for November 2009
was 1 1.5 percent. This repre-
sents 1,056,000 jobless out o' a
labor force of 9,202,000. The
agency said the'unemployment
rate was up 0.2 percentage point
from the revised October rate of
11.3 percent, and up 4.3 percent-
age points from the November
2008 rate.
That. placed the state's unem-
ployment rate 1.5 percentage
points higher than the national
unemployment rate of 10 per-
cent. November's rate was the
highest since May 1975 when it
was 11.9 percent.
According to FloridaWorks,
unemployment was 7.9 percent
in Alachua County in Novem-


her and 8.9 percent in Bradford
countyy , better than both the state
and national averages.

Freezes bring differing responses in regard to berries


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Anyone driving on U.S. 301
can usually make a stop early in
the morning approximately 5
miles north of Starke and buy
strawberries or a variety of
vegetables at Norman's Road-
side Market.
At 8 a.m. the morning of Jan.
4, however, the stand was dark
and vacant. All anyone stopping
and getting out of their vehicles
would accomplish was to place
themselves in a bitter cold that
was forecast for the area the
entire week.
Buddy Norman laughed about
the incident at approximately 10
a.m. when the stand finally did
open for business.
"I'm running three hours late
this morning," he said.
With the temperature barely
hovering above 30 degrees,
Norman and his wife, Sandra,


figured they would get a bit of a
late start. As it was, though,
Sandra said she had spent
enough consecutive days out in
the cold.,
"I'd like to go back to the
house," she said.
Staying in the house is what
Buddy Norman has chosen to
when it comes to tending to his
six acres of strawberries. He
would normally water his straw-
berry plants with sprinklers to
protect them during freezes. (As
water freezes, it releases heat to
keep the plants themselves from
freezing.)
Norman did water the plants
for two nights, but he quit as
forecasts called for consecutive
nights of temperatures below
freezing for at least a week.
"I'd rather lose the fruit in-
stead of damaging the bush,"
Norman said.
Jim DeValerio, the University


That's why Norman made
what he termed a "tough"' deci-
sion, but other there were other
factors as well. Norman, who is
in his 70s, did not relish the
prospect of being out in freezing
temperatureseso many consecu-
tive nights. Frost prevention
itself is easy, Norman said. The
job becomes tough, though,
when sprinkler heads freeze up


of Florida Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences agricul-
tural agent in Bradford County,
said while overhead irrigation
does prevent frost damage, it
can cause damage if done for a
prolonged period of time.
"The physical beating of the
water on the berry actually in-
creases some damage there,"
DeValerio said.

Hunters, naturalists and nature

Bradford County residents along
with University of Florida per-

Invasive plants pose a threat
to our natural lands. Weeds are
often easily controlled in a gar-
den or landscape setting by pull-


ing or using a weed killer. How-
ever, in natural areas, non-native
invasive plants often spread
without being noticed until they
have taken over vast acreages
and ruined native plant and ani-
mal habitats in natural areas.
Once established, exotic inva-

Principals talk personally, professionally about 2010


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
A new year means a new be-
ginning for a lot of people, but
for school principals, it is simply
the continuation of -the goals
established in summer at the
start of the school year.
That does not mean there is
no shortage of excitement
among area principals. They are
excited to see the year unfold as
they attempt to meet the needs
of their students in the best way
possible. Russell Larramore, the
principal of Lake Butler Middle
School, said it is human nature
to lose a bit of focis when re-
turning from a long break as
school personnel do when
school resumes in January. A
person can either simply exist
aild coast through the remainder
j'Bhe year or rededicate himself
herself to the task at hand.
��-For Larramore, it is the latter.
lTe said he is not one to really
iike resolutions, but he does
sAt a, goal to return to school
f0lo'iig the Christmas break
reenergized as well as refocused.
That, in turn, benefits students
as; Larramore and the staff at
Lake Butler Elementary School
educate students to the best of
their abilities in hopes of helping
them achieve success in life.
S 'Their future is at stake," Lar-
ramore said.
S Larramore and five other area
principals shared their thoughts
on; the new year and their
cichools with the Bradford
County Telegraph,. Union.
County Times and Lake Region
/Monitor.

tiigh marks on the FCAT
and state grading system
SEvery principal said one thing
hb or she is looking forward to
in 2010-as in every other year
to come-is the PCAT. It's at
the forefront of their minds be-
cause when January ' rolls
around, the FCAT-~s right
around the corner.
: "We only have a-few months
left' to prepare our students,"
said Lynn Melvin, the principal
at Starke Elementary School.
The question, Larramore said,
is what can faculty and adminis-
t1ators do to put their students
"over the hump" when it comes
to testing. At his school, for ex-
ample, mock -FCAT exercises
will allow faculty and adminis-
trators to determine from the,.
data generated where dfieir stu-
dents are at and where they need
io be in order to be successful.
SAs Larramore put it, mock
FCAT 'e.ergises allow school
personnel'to make "war plans to
attack deficiencies."
SUnion County High School
implemented "Test for Success"
days last year. Principal Alex
Nelson is looking forward to the
continuation of those days this
year as students participate in
testing-strategy sessions he said

will help them not only on the
FCAT, but on all standardized
tests, such as the ACT.
"The feedback we got (last
year) is it really helped them on
the FCAT and the ACT," Nel-
son said.
Such help is also offered at
Keystone Heights Jr.-Sr. High
School.
"I am excited..we are about to
start our after-school FCAT tu-
toring for six weeks in reading
and match," KHHS Principal
Susan Sailor said. "For the first
time, we are going to offer a
Saturday session-one Saturday
session for FCAT writing in
.hopes this. will boost the FCAT
scores.
Sailor said the tutoring ses-
sions have averaged 100, stu-
dents per session in the past and
have allowed the school to
maintain the high grades it re-
ceives from the state.
Union County .High School
earned its first-ever "B" from
the state last school year. That
was the result of a lot of hard
work, which has continued this
school year, Nelson said.
"This year, I'm excited be-
cause our students and staff con-
tinue to improve upon what.we
did last year," Nelson said.
That, too, is the goal at Lake
Butler Middle School. That's a
'"steep hill" to climbr-,-iLa-amoreW
said, considering the school,
which was tops in the state on
the writing portion of the FCAT,
improved its grade from a "C"
to an "A." That doesn't mean,
though, the attempt isn't made
to climb that hill.
"One of the things you always
do is set a goal to achieve be-
yond what you did last year,"
Larramore said.
The state has implemented a
new grading scale this year,
which will take into account
such things as graduation rates
and number of students in ad-
vanced courses as well as FCAT
performance.. Sailor said it will
be interesting to see where Key-

Nelson, too, is interested, to
be sure, but said he knows
LUCHS is a "great" school re-
gardless of what grade it earns
this year. Still, "it's nice to be
recogniized for being a great
school," lie said.

Beyond the FCAT
So much locus is"placed on
the FCAT, and rightly so, ac-
cording to Southside Elementary
School Principal Hill McRae,
who said, 'The test measures
mastery of Sunshine State Stan-
dards. That's w'hat we're sup-
posed to teach." McRae and the
oilier principals, though, arc
looking forward to more than
preparing their students for the

For Mary Minmbs, the princi-
pal at Keystone Heights Ele-
mentary School, it's all about
looking at the entire student
population anid focusing on an-
nual 'yearly progress. The
school's weakest area, as seems
to be the case with all Clay
County schools, Mimbs said. is
math. Mimbs and staff recently
attended a workshop on how to
teach nCe nmath standards. It
will change how teachers have
done things in tlie past, but tlhe
workshop was highly motivating
for those who attended.
"I think the kids are going to
benefit from it," Minmbs said.
SMelvin said teachers at Starke
Elementary are implementing
the school's "improvement
model" in their classrooms and
that the model has already bene-
fited students.
"We're seeing students make
lots of gain and progress from
the model," Melvin said.
Positive behavior is what has
McRae and Larramore excited at
their schools. Each school has a
new "positive behavior support"
program in place. As the name
suggests, it's a program, in
which students are rewarded for

"They are collected at the end

A computer prograil keeps

each student receives. Incentives
based on the number of' tickets
students earn are awarded at the
end of each nine-\\eeks grading

their tickets to purchase items

Iarramore said he looks for-

connection with the program as
well as watching the program
grow and develop.
"lThe students have responded
really well to it as have the fac-
ulty members," Larramore said.
Larramore and McRac are

sponse to intervention" pro-
grams at their schools. Lar-
ramore said LBMS is at the

At Southside, McRae is look-

Air potato

roundup to take

place Jan. 16
An air potato roundup \\ill be
held in Starke Saturda, .lhn. 16,
giving people the chance to not
only stop the spread of an inva-
sive weed, but earn chances to
win a $50 gift certificate to Ace
Hardware.
Air potatoes can be collected
from any location, including
your yard. Guided roundups
along Alligator Creek will begin
at Ace Hardware of Starke at 10
a.m. and I p.m. One gift certifi-
cate contest ticket will be
awarded for each plastic grocery
.bag of air potatoes turned in.
Participants will also receive a
free long leaf pine or cypress
seedling.
Ace Hardware will be accept-
ing air potatoes from II a.m.
until 3 p.m.

If you don't know how to
identify air potatoes or just like
to walk in the woods, you can
join a guided walk through the

rates. It is estimated Florida
spends approximately $9 million
per year on invasive plant man-
agement. These expenditures are
used to support a balanced Inte-
grated Pest Management plan
that includes mechanical con-
trol, biological control, herbi-
cides, land management prac-
tices and educational strategies.
Because of our warm climate,
comparatively high acreages of
wetlands and our highly tran-
sient society, Florida has been
dealing with introduced invasive
species for decades. Indeed,
many invading plants thrive
here.
Of all the lessons learned in
addressing problems associated
with getting rid of these plants,
the most important is to prevent
the establishment ,of . [Aijti; tb-
cause once they. get a foothold
they become very difficult to
remove. These naturalized
plants easily complete all phases
of their life cycle and most re-
produce by seed and vegeta-
tively.
It has been estimated that
more than 25,000 non-native
plant species have been intro-
duced to Florida for various
purposes, while others have
been introduced accidentally. Of
these, I1,l,0 are known to have
established populations that sur-
vive and reproduce on their own
(naturalized). These plants rep-
resent approximately 30 percent
of the state's flora. The Florida
Exotic Pest Plant council con-
siders 138 species to be irlva-
sive, 67 of which are considered
to be altering native plani'com-
munities by displacing native
species, changing plant commu-
nities' structure or ecological
functions, or hybridizing with
natives.
Bradford County hosts at least
21 non-native invasive plants:
* Air potato, (Dioscorea bul-
bifera)
* Air yam (Dioscorea alta)
* Ardisia (Ardisia crenata).
* Camphor (Cinnamomum,
camphora)
* Caesar weed (Urena lobata)
* Chinaberry (Melia azeda-
rach)
* Chinese tallow (Tridica se-
bifera)
* Chinese wisteria (Wisteria

* Japanese wisteria (Wisteria

* Cogongrass (Inperata cy-

Locally, citizen groups work
with the Florida Invasive Spe-
cies Partnership
(http://www .floridainvasives.org
/cismas.html), being listed as the
Bradford County Cooperative
Weed Management Area. This
organization links many agen-
cies charged with managing
exotic plants so that efforts can
be coordinated with maximum
efficiency. According to Paul
Still from the Bradford Soil and
Water Conservation District,
Bradford County received a Na-
tional Fish arid Wildlife Founda-
tion Pulling Together Initiative
grant in 2008, which was the
first step to forming this weed-
management area.
The formation of the weed-
management area has resulted in
several area workshops focused
on educating Bradford residents
on how to identify and eradicate
invasive plants. The plant identi-
fication tour and air potato
roundup-scheduled for Satur-
day, Jan. 9, and Saturday, Jan.
16-are two examples of up-
coming events. The group is
planning on continuing to orga-
nize these kinds of activities
throughout the coming year.
Although controlling all inva-
sive plants is important, one
plant in particular should be
causing alarm within our com-
munity, particularly with hunters
because the sport depends on
natural forages being available
for wildlife to feed. The plant is
known as Japanese climbing
fern, and although it is a rela-
tively new introduction, it is
rapidly spreading in our local
forests. This fern-like vine has
spores that are spread very effi-
ciently by the wind. This plant
grows so aggressively it can
cover entire trees in addition to
becoming a dominant ground
cover.
According to Florida Invasive
Species Partnership philosophy,
we are to "think locally and act
neighborly" since "invasive ex-
otic species know no bounda-
ries." This illustrates the impor-
tance of controlling all of the
weeds in a location. Oftentimes,
it is necessary to approach the
landowner of neighboring prop-
erty and ask if he or she will join
in the effort-otherwise the
weed will come right back from
the foothold left unchecked.
Accordingly, the Bradford
County Cooperative Weed Man-
agement Area is joining state-
wide and national efforts by
helping to control air potato this
month by doing its part in Brad-
ford County.

A Doctor's Confession to the Public...

Dear friend,
Let me tell you a story... ,, ,
Twenty years ago I was a young ma n n my it'd 0 '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 tof.s-fEven though I'm in a lot of pain I make it to my
family doctor's office and am prescribed pain pils and muscle relaxers and told to "Take it easy for a
while". That didn't help much. Finally, a frie' qfei,%convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The
chiropractor did an exams tdok some films, an'd Weti'adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn't hurt, it
actually felt good. I got relief, and I was happy gajn. It worked so well that I went to Chiropractic
College myself. ,AL'..
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 limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few.
Several times a day patients thank me for l-ping them with their health problems. But I can't really take the credit. My
confession is that I've never healed anyone of anyiing. 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 c use 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 right away because this offer
expires at the end of the month, and I don't want you 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 .t, really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our
best make you feel at home. We have a wotiderf' ~I i,'at an exceptional fee. Our office is called STARKE CHIROPRACTIC and
it is at 225 S. Orange St. (We are across from Wi',DI e). Our phone number is 904-368-0011. Call Cheryl, Vivian or me today for

Omar and Helen Huff celebrate

65th wedding anniversary


Helen and Omar met as high
school sweethearts almost 70
years ago in a small one-room
school house in Pine Grove, Ga.
After graduation, Omar immedi-
ately enlisted in World War II,
while the love.of his life waited
across the sea for his return. The
day finally came, and they were
happily married on Jan. 7, 1945,
iq Valdosta, Ga.
, During the following years,
t6ey lived in several locations as
tbeir family grew. They were
tlessed with four loving chil-
fren: Paul, (Thomas) Gregory,
Ietsy and Teresa. Unfortu-
ritely,.two years ago, Betsy was
lost to a sudden brain aneurysm.
(Qi a better note, they have been
f*


blessed with 11 grandchildren,
and are expecting their 12th
great-grandchild.
After retiring in January of
1985, they were involved in
missions work at home and
abroad. They traveled and had
the opportunity to enjoy numer-
ous activities with fellow Chris-
tians.
Due to health reasons, the
family regrets that they are un-
able to provide the fellowship
they enjoyed with friends and
family on their 50'" anniversary.
In closing, we would like to
quote Mark 10:9, "And no man
may separate what God has
joined together."

another was to catch a bigger

though, DeValerio said. The
area usually experiences cooler
weather before January with one
or two frosts late in the year. An
"unseasonably" warm year,
though has created plants with
more blooms than usual at this
time of the year. Therefore, De-
Valerio said he could certainly
see growers resort to frost pro-
tection, but since it's early Janu-
ary and the plants themselves
are still "putting on size," he
could also see growers not fool-
ing with frost protection.
DeValerio said Norman, for
example, likes for his plants to
grow larger so they produce
more berries during the height of
the harvesting season. King,
though, if his use of row covers
is effective and his blooms re-
main alive, will harvest sooner
than others, DeValerio said.
The bottom line, no matter
what decision growers make, is
to produce quality berries.
That's why King accepts he will
lose some berries even with the


use or row covers. He's not con-
cerned about the fruit currently
on his plants.
"You don't care if yotu lose
one of these berries you've got
here now," King said. "It's these
berries you're going to pick in
10 days."
DeValerio said this period of
freezing temperatures could
have occurred at a much worse
time.
"I would be more concerned a
month from. now and the plants
were really loaded up with a lot
of blooms," DeValerio said.
It has been reported the area
could experience below-average
temperatures this month, Febru-
ary and March. According to
data on the Weather Channel's
Web site, the average low tem-
peratures for Jan. 3-10 are either
40 or 41 degrees. The actual
lows for Jan. 3 and Jan. 4 have
been recorded as 27 and 26 de-
grees. Projections have low
temperatures of 22, 24, 37, 26,
22 and 25 degrees through Jan.


10.
Buddy and Sandra Norman
said they can't ever remember
so many consecutive nights of
such weather .
"They said in '77," Sandra
said, "but I don't remember
that."
King did not seem too fazed
about the forecast.
"We've had this before," he
said. "It isn't any different than
any other little cold patch. You
just either run the water or cover
(the strawberry plants) up and
hope for the best."

Yakeem Griner earned the MVP trophy as he helped
lead Bradford to the First Coast Classic champion-
ship. The Tornadoes went 3-0 in the tournament, de-
feating Wolfson, Melody Christian and Crescent City.
Griner scored 23 points against Wolfson in the open-
ing round to get the Tornadoes off on the right foot
and avenge an earlier-season loss.


meeting, which took place on
Dec. 3, was a 71-58 Raiders
win. Chandler felt his team was
outhustled in that game.
This time around, though,
Chandler said his team played a
lot harder and benefited from
some different defensive forma-
tions, which kept the Raiders off
balance. Defensive standouts
included Griner and Marcus
Ardley, who made several steals
in the fourth quarter and played
a "great" game, Chandler said.

Ardley and Covington joined
Griner in double figures with 11
points each.
This is just the second time
this season that Bradford has put
consecutive wins together.
Chandler said winning three in a
row against tough competition
in a tournament format will
definitely serve as a positive
springboard for the rest of the
season. In those three tourna-
ment wins, Chandler said he saw
a lot of fight in his team as play-
ers refused to give up when fac-
ing tough situations.
"I'm proud of the guys."
Chandler said.


Justin McBride (left) was one of four players in double
figures in a first-round win over Wolfson. *

Stewart, Lady

Tigers keep

rolling with win

over Baker Co.
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor

The Christmas break did not
seem to have much of an effect
on Anbreyal Stewart's game as
she scored 37 points in the Un-
ion County girls' basketball
team's 51-48 win over visiting
Baker County on Jan. 4.
Stewart's last outing was a
40-point effort that helped the
Tigers claim the championship
trophy in a tournament hosted
by Oak Hall. Her effort this time
around helped the Tigers earn
their seventh win in the last
eight games and improve to 8-5
heading into this past Tuesday's
game against University Chris-
tian.
Head coach Curtis Mesnard
said his players did a good job
of hitting open shots. He was
especially pleased with the de-
fensive effort.
"We are very excited to get a
win against a quality opponent'
like Baker County," Mesnard
said. The Wildcats entered the
game with an 8-1 record.
Quaneshia Edwards added
nine points for Union, which
will host District 4-3A opponent
Interlachen Friday, Jan. 8, at 6
p.m. On Tuesday, Jan. 12, the
Tigers host district opponent
Keystone Heights at 7:30 p.m.
The Tigers' junior varsity
team defeated Baker as well by
a score of 49-43. Teyona Jen-
kins scored 15 points, while
Dorean Sirmones had 12.

Glen St. Mary as the Tigers

The Tigers did play a close
game against Suwannee before
being outscored 14-9 in the
fourth quarter, but ended the
tournament with an 80-59 loss to
Class 5A Ridgeview on Dec. 31.
Union led by three points after
the first quarter, but the Panthers

outscored the Tigers 26-12 in
the second quarter and 25-13 in
the third quarter.
Quentin Johnson, who scored
in double figures in all three
tournament games, had 12
points for Union.
