Through the day, Starke is nearly
identical to any other small Florida
town, but after the sun sets you might
observe a few things that will make you
gather your loved ones a little nearer,
and close and lock the doors.
Though some locals allege these sto-
ries are not true, many have claimed
meetings with spirits from another di-
mension. If you can suspend disbelief
for just one hour, You may visit where
the unseen residents of our little town
hang out and you'll learn a few "haunt-
ing" stories about our fair city.
The ghosts of Starke will be out dur-
ing the month of October, so be careful
and keep your eyes open as you wander
the haunted streets.
The -Starke History and Mystery
Ghost Tour will be held on Friday and
Saturday evenings through Oct. 30.
Guided tours at 7:15, 8:15, and 9:15
p.m. and will take visitors through the
streets of town, where they will hear
stories about the last hanging in Starke,
the Ghost of Call Street, Headless Har>-
mon Murray, and other local legends.
The tours will meet on the Call Street
sidewalk near Santa Fe College, last
about one hour and cost $10 per per-

So, is Starke haunted? Visit some
of these allegedly haunted locations-
thriving businesses, creepy deserted
buildings or modernized taverns-and
you might have to say yes.
In the barbershop, can't you some-
times, hear the whoops from an old
poker game that's been running for 150
years? And if you stand in the empty lot
that was once the Half-Moon Bar and
hotel, listen for the thump of old Peg-
Leg, the newspaper's helper, thudding
up the stairs to his apartment after a
long night of putting the paper to bed.
Think about the vibrant and some-
times tragic history that many of these
buildings have seen, and when you are
headed back home for your night's rest,
just remember to look over your shoul-
der as you walk. You never know who
might be standing right behind you.
in Dist. 2
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Two races for local office will be de-
cided in the upcoming election, early
voting for which begins next week. One
is the runoff for the District 5 school
board seat and the other is the race for
the District 2 'seat on the county com-
Only two candidates qualified for the
District 2 race, each for a separate par-
ty, so the race advanced right past the
primary to the general election.
Incumbent Commissioner Doyle
Thomas, a Democrat, has spent 12 years
representing District 2. He calls the job
demanding but rewarding. Although
elected by District 2, he feels it's his
duty to serve all of Bradford County,
and that's why he says he's running for
"Because I love it. I love serving the
people," he said.
Born and raised here, Thomas and
his wife, Brenda, have been married 43
years, and they have an adult daughter.
He has been a business owner for more
than 34 years.
While in office, Thomas says he has
stood firmly against increasing the fi-
. nancial burden on county residents
through tax and other fee increases.
He has lobbied for state funds for
local road projects, and said he saved
taxpayer money by looking for used
equipment for the road and fire depart-
ments. He also led the effort to place
grant-funded park in Pleasant Grove.
Rather than see the county lose its
mosquito control funding because of
its lack of a departmental director, he
took the classes himself at no cost to the
county, and continues to take courses to
maintain his public health pest control

Scientists from the Suwannee River
Water Management District say that
if people throughout the district begin
conserving .water they can help offset
projected increases in demand over the
next 20 years.
Conservative estimates project the
demand for water to increase by 10.3
million gallons per day throughout a
district already being affected the un-
derground water drawdown from the
Jacksonville and south Georgia areas.
On the other hand, the district also
performed a high-range projection that
shows more growth could increase the
demand by almost 63 million gallons
per day, which would dwarf the 13 mil-
lion gallons or so per day they say water
conservation could provide.
In that case, the district would find it-
self in a balancing act between permit-
ting all reasonable uses while allowing
no harm to come to the ecosystem.

assessments every five years. If the as-

they have in this region, plans must
be developed to meet future needs, and

Things I believe in! /
Elective offices were not intended to be
occupations, otherwise they would not need to be
This should be a major concern for all of Bradford
County. We are in some tough economic times with no idea how long they will last. Every effort available
should be made to attract more companies to increase higher wage jobs.
VSTARKE 301 BY-PASS
Urging the state to complete the proposed by-pass would not only open up the flow of traffic through
Starke, but also create (4) new interchanges. Each interchange would be a magnet for new business and
new jobs. It would also make smoother access for the many truckers that pass through the county. This
should attract manufacturing companies to the Bradford area.
The waste disposal sites and landfill should be studied for better options to reduce waste, increase
profits, and making this a "GREEN" community.
Law enforcement, fire and rescue, emergency management... these are the people who protect us. They
do the things that we as citizens are not reasonably able to do for ourselves. They should be fully
supported by our local governing bodies.
Education is a key factor in the success of our children. This should include extracurricular activities such
as music, sports, and arts to develop each individuals ego.
Changes made through this system should be studied to ensure NO confusing changes are made.
Rescue personnel who are deterred by this confusion could easily face a life or death matter.
/EXTREMELY LIMITED GOVERNMENT
Citizens costs of government is out of control nationwide. Retirement benefits that far exceed the private
sector, job duplications, high dollar needless purchases, lack of accountability, etc. All keep adding up in
cost to the private sector. That's us, our kids and our grandkids.

'issue that people have raised
time and again is law enforce-

position to it.
"That's the first question that's
asked of me," he said.

consolidation, then he wants it
for them, he said.
Thomas' opponent is Bob
Mansfield, who may not have
been born and raised in Bradford
County, but is quick to point out
he is here by choice.
Mansfield joined the U.S.
Navy reserves in Jacksonville
even prior to graduating high
school, and he served during the
Berlin Crisis, the first manned
space flights and the Cuban Mis-
sile Crisis-.experiences that he
says formed his love and respect
for the county and its armed
His career experience includes
being a mechanic, including work
as an automotive service manag-
er for Sears. He also started his
own home restoration, repair and
maintenance business. Currently,
he works part time as manager of
a fireworks sales business.
Mansfield left the growing
Jacksonville area behind for
a more laid back lifestyle. As
he visited communities around
north central Florida, he said it
was the kind and helpful people
he met in Bradford County that
helped make his decision to lo-
cate here in 1999.
Mansfield has two adult daugh-
ters who live out of state and a
total of seven grandchildren. He
is engaged to-Veronica (Ronnie)
Mansfield calls himself a Tea
Party Republican, and in doing
so he taps a movement that is
fed up with politics as usual and
wants to change the direction of
the country, particularly as it re-
lates to taxation, spending and
the accumulation of debt.
He says he's followed local
politics since moving here, and,
in fact, he unsuccessfully ran
against Thomas for the same
county commission seat in 2002.
That is exactly the way he sees it.
too-that he's running for the seat
more than he's running against
Thomas. But Mansfield also said
he wants to be on the commis-
sion to help create change.
He said some of what takes
place in county government
boggles his mind. After seeing
a rescue unit travel up and down
his road looking for a residence,
Mansfield began questioning
county personnel about why
EMS workers were having such a
problem getting to their call. Af-
ter some investigation, he found
that different street numbers had
been assigned for every bend in
the road, but the only solution
offered was some additional sig-
nage. He said he was told it was
too much trouble to do anything
"I couldn't believe it. Changes
need to be made in the courthouse
and it starts with the county com-
mission," he said.
Although he was already con-
sidering running again based on,
such frustrations, this incident
helped make up his mind.
Among the things Mansfield
believes in are limited govern-
ment, term limits, and support
for economic growth, the 301
bypass and public safety. He said
getting the state to build the by-
pass sooner than later would not
only improve the flow of traffic
through he city of Starke, but

Critics say this leads the Legis-

on the ballot without adequate
explanation of how those laws
will impact voters.
Only a successful legal chal-
lenge can keep such amendments

three proposed amendments.
Judges killed Amendments 3, 7
and 9, all of which were deemed.
Amendment 3 would have

the amendment could have been
misinterpreted by voters.
Amendment 7 was the legisla-
tive response to Amendments 5
and 6, which were placed on the
ballot by citizen initiative. Sup-
porters in the Legislature said
it was only meant to clarify the
preceding two amendments, but
opponents claimrned it no clarifi-

actually ruled Amendment 7 was
too confusing when tossing it
Amendment 9 was known as
the Health Care Freedom amend-
ment, a response to passage of
federal health care legislation that
promised to protect doctor-pa-
tient relationships, prevent wait-
ing lists for access to health care
services, etc. A judge said the
lengthy amendment didn't pro-
vide for achieving any of those
goals, and opponents argued it
was politically motivated.

rivers and springs.
"The assessment shows that
groundwater levels in the north-
eastern portion of the Suwan-
nee River Water Management
District are in decline. This, area
includes parts of Alachua, Baker,
Bradford, Columbia, Gilchrist,
Hamilton, Suwannee and Union
"Groundwater use'both within
and beyond the district is respon-
sible for the decline.
"Carlos Herd is the district's
water supply project manager
and a geologist. He showed ele-
ments of the assessment report
to a small group gathered at the
college auditorium last week,
including graphics that depicted
monitoring wells where statisti-
cally significant declines were
measured and- he Emigration

had reached White Springs in
2005, depriving the spring of its
spring shed. As the divide moves
further west, the district is losing
more of its ground water basin.
The district has lost 20 percent
of that basin already, equivalent
to 2,000 square miles, Herd said.
This threatens minimum flow
levels in springs and rivers.
Regions that cannot meet the
projected 20-year demand for
water without exceeding flow
constraints must be designated
water supply planning regions
under Florida Law, Herd said.
This includes developing plans
that look at recovery and pre-
vention strategies for threatened
water resources, evaluate alter-
native water supplies and poten-
tial water resource development
projects, examine the impact
of conservation techniques and
;identify funding sources for pro-
:* ,Three planning regions have.
.been identified in the district.
::The Upper Santa Fe River Basin
.is primarily made up of Bradford.
Union and northern Alachua
:counties. Minimim flow levels at
:.Worthington Springs are already
exceeded and any further decline
:in Graham will cause a violation
::.The Lower Santa Fe River
B' ,asin is west of the first region.
:ï¿½hile the Upper Suwannee River
:Basin and the Alapaha River Ba-
sin are to the north.
:..Looking at alternative water
: supplies, there is low-quality
water from the lower Floridan
Aquifer that could have sornme
.commercial and industrial cool-
ing applications. It might not be
available, however. Scientists
haven't been able to determine
if:there is geological separation
:of this deep water from the fresh
w.lVater above it. If not, then pump-
ing.it would be just like pumping
:water from the bottom of a buck-
et, Herd said, and groundwater
levels would continue to drop.
Surface water from rivers at
hiigh flow has some agricultural
:applications, but not for food
`_rops because of the potential
fbr bacterial contamination. De-
veloping reservoir or recharge
projects could help raise ground-
water levels in the aquifer, but
the amount of surface water that
can be reclaimed from rivers and
streams would be restricted by
the need to maintain minimum
Reclamation involves proj-
ects to process water that has
been used and recycle it for other
uses like irrigation, but again,
some restriction on the use of re-
claimed water would apply. Plus,
in the primarily rural district,
most people are served by their
own pump and septic systems, so
there isn't a lot of public water
That brought Herd to the most
likely alternative source for wa-
ter, a solution everyone can par-
ticipate in-conservation. Public
utility systems can be made more
efficient. Outdoor use of water
from private wellss ca,,be regu-
lated and'people aciObeteducated
to use less water indoors. Even
agricultural operations have a
role to play in conservation.
The district doesn't have con-
trol of what takes place in Jack-
sonville or Georgia, but it is
working with the St. Johns River
Water Management District on
these issues, Herd said. Eventu-
ally, local governments will be
required to adopt measures to
help implement water supply
plans when they are ready.
Herd said this is the first wa-
ter supply report the district has
written, and it will get better as
the process continues.
The 2010 districtwi'de water
supply assessment is scheduled
for adoption by the district's gov-
erning board by the end of this
year. After Starke, the district
took its public presentation to
Live. Oak and Fanning Springs.
The final presentation is sched-
uled for Oct. 19 in Perry.

Professional barbecue teams
come from Georgia, Alabama,
Florida and as far away as Mis-
souri to compete in the Santa Fe
College Boots 'n BBQ Cook-Off
Feb. 11-12 at the Bradford Coun-
ty Fairgrounds in Starke.
"We're expecting at least 70
barbecue teams this year," said
Kathryn Lehman, festival orga-
nizer. Boots 'n BBQ is a fund-
raiser for scholarships to help
Bradford County students attend
Santa Fe College.
There's $16,000 in prize mon-
ey to be won at this year's con-
test, which is now in its third year
of existence. The third time is the
charm for this Santa Fe event:
It's a Triple Crown Series con-
test, it's the Florida Bar-B-Que
Association State Championship
for 2011, and it's a Jack Daniel's
World Championship Invitation-
al Barbecue qualifier event.
"This is exciting news for us
and a great honor," said Lehman.
"I believe this is the largest prize
amount in the state of Florida."
Plans are afoot to turn the
cook-off's popular cake auction
into a Bradford Fest Bakery, be-
cause so many people would like
to sample the wide variety of ar-
during the evening meal. All
proceeds will go to the PFO at
Hampton Elementary School.
The finale will be five solid
hours of some of the best gospel
music around. The lineup will
begin at 4 p.m. and conclude at
9 p.m. Featured, in order of ap-

NEWS FROM BRADFORD COUNTY, UNION COUNTY AND THE LAKE REGION
Vaughan in midst of 25th year as the Tornadoes' voice
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Players and coaches have
come and gone, but WEAG
radio's "Voice of the
Tornadoes" has remained
unchanged for 24-plus years,
describing the play of the
Scarlet and Gray for those who
can't attend the games in
Terry Vaughan is in the
midst of his 25'h year of calling
Bradford High football games.
He has. seen wins and losses,
and the good plays and the
bad, but admitted he never
envisioned himself still sitting
behind the microphone after
doing so for the. first time in
"I really didn't think it
would be something I'd be
doing this long," Vaughan
said, "but I've enjoyed it. It's
been a wonderful ride."
Providing the play-by-play
voice . for games was
something Vaughan dreamed
of doing as a child, when he
listened to such people as Curt
Gowdy and Keith Jackson.
"I would sit in front of a
game on television-NFL or
college game-and kind of
turn the sound down and do
the play-by-play," he said.
Though he did not go into
broadcast communications as a
student at Florida State
University, Vaughan did major
in communications. He
graduated from FSO in August
1982-a tough time to look for
work, he said, as the country
was in the midst of a recession.
Vaughan put in resumes "all
over" before getting the chance
to run the state employment
agency in Starke.
Vaughan had never been to
Starke or Bradford County, but
feit it was the right move to
"My girlfriend had just
broken up with me," he said. "I
thought the world had ended.-It
was probably a good idea to g'o
somewhere and get a fresh
The move paid off in that
Vaughan met his wife,
Jennifer, and eventually was
elected as Bradford County's
supervisor of elections-a job
he holds to this day.
'"1 think the good lord was
looking out for me," Vaughan
Before becoming supervisor
of elections, Vaughan worked
at the state employment
agency and got to know the
Dickersons who own WEAG.
They had recently purchased
the station when Vaughan
began doing a radio program
on job vacancies in the region.
He also helped sell advertising.
"When the manager of the
radio station took ill in '85,
they asked me to come over to
manage the radio station at that
time," Vaughan said. "After
two years of working at the
state employment agency, I
went to work at WEAG."
Vaughan did an on-air
morning show as' well as
taking over play-by-play duties
for the station's broadcasts of
Bradford High School football
games. It was a dream-come-
true of sorts for Vaughan, who
said he was thankful the
Dickersons stuck with him
after that first year. Vaughan
said he wasn't very good at
calling the games at first,
describing himself as
overenthusiastic and trying too
"I was scared to death," he
said. "Quite frankly, I don't
think I wts ready. Like most
There will be a Workshop at 5:00
p.m. before the regular meeting of
the Bradford County Board of
County Commissioners scheduled
for October 21, 2010 at 6:30 p.m.
in the Commission Meeting Room,
North Wing, Bradford County
Courthouse, 945 N. Temple Ave.,
Starke, FL. A copy of the agenda
may be obtained from the county
or from the office of County
Manager in the North wing of the
things, you just have to jump
in the deep end and hope that
you can swim. I was awfully
ragged and rough around the
edges to begin with, but began
to get the hang of it in time."
The job is more challenging,

Vaughan thinks, than that of
those TV announcers he used
to listen to as a child. TV play-
by-play announcers don't have
to be as descriptive since the
audience can actually see what
is taking place.
"To me, an effective play-
by-play guy on radio is one
who can paint a picture so that
the listener can pretty much
envision in their minds what's
going on on the field,"
It's not always the easiest
task to paint that picture as
Vaughan has found himself in
some interesting situations at
some stadiums, whether it was
a fear of falling through the
stands, which were in
disrepair, at Wildwood or
being out in the open on a deck
at P.K. Yonge and having to
set up a "duck blind" from

Santa Fe teacher can relate to students' language struggles
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Students struggling in the
U Spanish I course offered at the
' Santa Fe College Stump'
- Center in Starke have a
sympathetic figure in their
% professor, who was once in
their shoes, trying to learn a

How Alicia VoaLehe may

she could go to school and

Why UF? Because it's such
a well-known university, plus
VonLehe has a cousin who is a
doctor who did a fellowship
"She said, 'Why don't you
try the University of Florida?
It's close to home and the
weather is nice. It's a very
good university.' After she
recommended it," VonLehe
said, "I said, 'Well, why not?'
"After that, what happened
was I got a student visa from
the University of Florida to
. study English first, because 1
didn't know any English."
It was not her intent to
- become a teacher, but
- VonLehe, said she noticed
there was a need for Spanish
teachers in the area. She began
teaching "here and there," as
she put it, doing so at first in
Alachua County public school
"I taught for a couple of
years," she said. "Then after
that, I realized maybe I should
change majors. My major,
when I first came to
Gainesville, was going to be

taught students one year
through the college's
interactive video feed, but it
was not an experience- she
enjoyed or was comfortable
with. She said she's "old-

personal interaction is also a
part of the culture she grew tip
Therefore, it has been hard
for VonLehe to adjust to what
she described as the informal
nature of students in the
United States. Students will
walk into her room without

'and his helpers are heroes. Food
Pantry organizers and their
volunteers from a large number
of area churches are also heroes.
They all work very hard to pro-
vide necessities-and hope-for
area people who are now facing
some very hard times.
Hayes and his group have or-
ganized a Coats for Kids cam-
paign every year for three years.
This program will help a lot of
Bradford County kids stay warm
The goal of the group is to
collect 500 new or gently used
coats and blankets that will be
provided to area people who
might not have the means to
purchase them for themselves.
Hayes and his staff under-
stand very well how destitute a
lot of our local population is.
The difficulty people face in
finding jobs has left a lot of kids
hungry and cold. Food Stamps
'help, but the increased demand
for 'food has also been felt by the
Food Pantry. The Food Pantry
and Coats for Kids have become
mainstays that provide bare ne-
cessities for an increasing num-
ber of our local people.
Without the food provided by
the Food Pantry. many area
people would be without any
means to feed their families.
Without Coats for Kids, an in-
creasing number of our local
children would be without one
of the most basic needs-
You can help provide area
families with these most basic of

will buy a coat at discount stores

be cleaned, take it to Garfield

for the effort. Send the coat,

Coats will be distributed on
Saturday, Oct. 23, from noon to
2 p.m. at the church.
The food provided by the
Food Pantry is often the only
thing that prevents a needy area
family from sending their kids to
bed hungry. Non-perishable
food items are always needed,
and the current economic crisis
has only served to increase that
Canned vegetables, canned
meats, canned fruit, cereals,
powdered milk, flour, cornbread

than ever before.

County church, or they can be
dropped off in the'box at West-

Retirement Accounts (GRAs).
The confiscation of our re-
tirement and savings plans. will
require our government to sell
equities in the private accounts
in exchange for the "safety of
treasuries." However, there is no
safety in treasuries as they are
ground zero when it comes to
fiat (paper) currency risk. The
Obama administration's 10-year
budget plan predicts that tho,
national debt of the U.S. will
exceed $25 trillion in 2019. At
some total debt level, a tipping,
point will occur, causing hyper-.
inflation resulting in an explo-,
sion of the debt bomb. When
that. happens, your "safe" GRA
will become worthless.

elected to sacrifice Social Secu-
rity on the alter of corruption by
spending the entire surplus re-
quiring the U.S. Treasury to
cover the embezzlement by issu-
ing non-negotiable IOU bonds
to the Trust Fund. Such eco-
nomically irresponsible and
morally reprehensible behavior
by entrenched politicians dem-
onstrates their total disrespect
for working people.
After successfully looting the

to loot individual IRAs and

kickoff 44 yards to the
Bradford 41 -yard line.
Running back ' Prince
Alexander provided the initial
spark for the Tigers on the
drive, picking tip a first down
on a 7-yard run shortly before
a 10-yard run to the 14 on
which he sidestepped out of a
tackle. Tyson, who finished
with 72 yards on 19 carries,
took the ball into the end zone
from there for his second
touchdown of the night.
Calloway came up with what
would prove to be one of the
biggest plays when he blocked
Carl Alexander's extra-point
kick, which put the score at
24-13 in favor of the Tigers.
The Tornadoes turned the
ball over on a fumble on the
ensuing' series, but -the
Bradford. defense forced the
Union offense to go three-and-
out. The Tigers' punt was dead
at the Bradford 40 with 5:27 to
Bradford quarterback Austin
Chipoletti threw an 18-yard
pass to Tramaine Harris, which
was followed by a 19-yard run
by Clayton. Chipoletti and
Harris then hooked up again
for a touchdown at the 4:36
mark. Chipoletti's pass on the
two-point conversion was
incomplete, leaving Bradford
Prince Alexander returned
the ensuing kickoff 26 yards,
giving the Tigers decent field
position at their ,own 34.
Bradford's defense rose to the
occasion, though, with Tr6
Edmond dropping running
back Walter. Bradley for a 2-
yard loss before Lyndell
Hampton tipped an Austin
Harden pass, which was
intercepted " by linebacker
Keith Baker at the 26-yard
Two plays later, Clayton had
the Tornadoes at the 10-yard
line with a 12-yard run. Adrian
Mosley then had a 5-yard
carry, setting Willianis up for
what would 'be the game-
winning score. Williams was
stopped on a run on the two-
Bradford's defense made
another huge play on the
following series when John
Clark sacked Harden . and
forced an fumble, which
resulted in 'a'loss of 13 yards.
That left the Tigers trying to
.convert a fourth-and-19 play
from their own 21. Bradford's
Xavier Riles broke up the
fourth-down pass play,
allowing Bradford's Chipoletti
to take a knee three times to
run out the clock.
It was the second straight
week Bradford rallied from a
fourth-quarter deficit, leaving
coach Chipoletti thinking his
players took a pregame speech
by former Bradford coach
David Hurse too seriously as
Hurse talked of how some of
his teams, constantly put
'themselves in bad situations
that they had to dig out of.
",We sure do things the hard
way," Chipoletti said.
That was evident in the first
half as both teams made their
share of mistakes. It began
when Union fumbled away the
'-opening kickoff, which
Bradford's Demetrius Martin
recovered at the Union 30. The
Tornadoes, though, turned the
ball over on downs at the 21.
Union's Prince Alexander
made the key play when he
tackled Austin Chipoletti I

Uniofi's offense did not fare
much better than Bradford's as
the Tigers lined up to punt
after gaining 5 yards on three
plays. The snap sailed over the
head of punter Chason
Andrews, who did recover the
ball and attempt a punt, .bit the
result was a Bradford first
down at the Union 4-yard line.
Clayton scored on a run from
there, with Spencer Bunch's
PAT putting the Tornadoes up
7-0 at the 7:17 mark.of the first
On their next possession, it
was the Tornadoes' turn to
give the Tigers good field
position on a punt attempt.
Bunch attempted to field a low
snap, but inadvertently touched
his knee down at his own 15.
The result was a 12-yard run
by Tyson on Union's first-
down play. Tyson carried the
ball two more times, with the
second carrying him across the
goal line from a.yard out with
20 seconds left in the quarter.
Carl Alexander's PAT was no
good, so Bradford still led by a
score of 7-6.
Union's defense came up
with a big play on the
Tornadoes' next offensive
series when Chipoletti was
dropped for a 6-yard loss on a
third-down play, but the Tigers

Dickinson added ,that the
talent gap between the two
squads reduced the Indians'

precision from his team that it
was unable to attain.
"You've . got to play. a

Bradford got a 17'"-place

Oct. 9 in Gainesville.

field of 96. Ian Waters had a
season-best time of 20:25,

respectively. Pierce's time was
a personal record.

joined by Bradford runners
Deanna Jordan (25:52),
Hannah Ricker (28:27),
Destiny Trentham (33:21) and
Luciera Hamm (35:17).
Trentham and Hamm each
recorded a personal record.
In the junior varsity boys'
race, Bradford's Wisam Fares
had a time of 32:48.
Coach John Loper said it
was an .impressive
performance by the athletes,
especially considering the
brutal workout they were put
through on the Thursday

lowered her previous-best time
by approximately 20 seconds.

you never know if you're
going to be in a nice press box
or in the stands," he said.
"We've been in some pretty
precarious positions. I know in
Interlachen one year we were
sitting above the stands and
above the press box. I almost
felt like Karl Wallenda on a
tightwire. I felt like if the wind
was blowing, I would've fallen
30 or 40 feet."
Facilities at most schools,
though, are a lot better than
they were when he first started
broadcasting games, Vaughan
said. Technology is also better.
At road games in the past,
Vaughan, accompanied by Ben
Dickerson, would have to
make a phone call to a location
nearby and utilize what is
called a coupler to transmit the
action to the audience within
WEAG's coverage area.
"Nowadays, on road games
we use basically a cell phone
with a mixer," Vaughan said.
When broadcasting from
David Hurse Stadium at
Bradford High School, a Marti
transmitter is used.
"It takes us about 15 minutes
to set up and is usually a nice,
clean sound, as a rule,"
Though stadium facilities
and technology have changed
over the years, the names
Vaughan calls have remained
the same in some cases as he
has started calling the names
of sons of players he called in
his early days.
"Maybe I'll hang around
long enough to get some
grandkids," Vaughan said.
Vaughan has seen many
great players take the field for
the Tornadoes. He almost
hesitated to begin naming
names, knowing full well he
would forget to mention
someone, but did. say he

Two running backs who
played under head coach
Rowland Cummings were
exciting to watch: Demetrice
Hankerson and Alphonso
Smith. Vaughan said they were
exciting for different reasons.
"He wasn't big, but
(Hankerson) was one where
you held your breath every
time he had his hands on the
football," Vaughan said,
before adding this about
Smith: "I enjoyed his style of
football. He played fullback
for us in the Wing-T. He was a
kid you could always count on

"He's been a ton of fun to

was fun to watch. It was a
team characterized by a player
such as defensive end Mike
Elder, whom Vaughan
described as probably
weighing only 145 pounds,
"yet the kid got it done."
"We didn't have a lot of size
(that year), but we had kids
who would absolutely bring
their lunch pail and their
hardhat, and come after you
from the opening whistle to the
final gun," Vaughan said..
It was the final team
coached by head coach David
Hurse, yet still a typical Hurse
"That was something coach
Hurse was always known
for-having small teams that
overachieved in some way in
terms of-getting the most out
of their physical ability,"
Hurse was one of nine
coaches who have guided the
Tornadoes during Vaughan's
time behind the microphone.
Vaughan said he has had a
good relationship with all of
them, but said his relationship
with Hurse developed more
fully after Hurse retired.

"My baptism into Tornado

forget," Vaughan said. ,
Since then, Vaughan has
become so immersed in
Bradford High School that he
feels like an alumnus. He takes
pride in stepping out from
behind the microphone and
being' involved with the
football program in other
ways, such as helping to
establish the Tornado Pride
"I feel like Bradford High
School kind of courses through
my veins," Vaughan said.
During his time broadcasting
the games, Vaughan said he.
has worked with five or six
color commentators. The main
commentators during those
years were Mike Hartley,
Harry Hatcher, Wayne
McLeod and Rick Cragg, who
is in his 14'" year of
Vaughan said he and Cragg

last 25 years for Vaughan, who
looks forward to continuing-as
the "Voice of the Tornadoes"
as long as he's able.
"As long as the good lord
blesses me with health, the
people enjoy hearing me and
the folks at the radio station
ï¿½ continue to make a
commitment to high school
football, then I hope to stay
doing it for a good, long time,"
