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.

USPS 062-700 — Stark e, Florida Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015 136th Year — 10th Issue — 75 CENTS The Sweetest Srawbries his sid Heave BC students struggled with FSA examsBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor School district performance data for the Florida Standards Assessment tests taken earlier this year were released last week, and in almost every case, Bradford’s mean scores fell below the state average. In this first year of administration, the FSA has fallen under scrutiny. The release of results was delayed pending independent verification studies that looked into the validity of the tests. Even after the state expressed confidence in the exams following the completion of the studies, school superintendents banded together in requesting that schools and school districts not be graded based on the results. Complicating analysis of the results is the fact that passing scores, or cut scores, have only just been recommended by Education Commissioner Pam Stewart and not approved by the state Board of Education. Even those recommendations have been criticized, as they wind up failing around half of the students who were tested. While that will have little affect on students in terms of graduation or placement, the same cannot be said of teacher evaluations and school grades. Instead of pass/fail information, districts were provided with T scores last week that reveal little more than how their average scores match up with others around the state. T scores are used to show how far an individual score is from the mean. The state average is represented by a value of 50. Most of the results are clustered around the mean without much deviation, but in almost every case, the Bradford School District’s scores fell below the state average. In the list of district results listed for each grade level, Bradford consistently appears in the lower half of the list, with T scores below 50. • • • Weekly deadline is Monday at 5 p.m. • Phone 904-964-6305 • Fax 904-964-8628 Y M C K Y M C K Pumpkin Escape back for HalloweenThe Great Pumpkin Escape will return to downtown Starke on Halloween night, Saturday, Oct. 31.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor STARKE — Frank Kroll is well known for his work in firefighting and emergency response. Kroll has now taken on the responsibility of crime scene investigator and evidence custodian for the Bradford County Sheriff’s Office. Even before he graduated from Bradford High School in 2009, Kroll was involved in protecting the public and property. He joined the Heilbronn Springs Volunteer Fire Department in 2007, and when his postgraduation plans to become an EMT didn’t pan out, he joined the sheriff’s office as a communications officer. When he wasn’t responding to emergencies himself, he was dispatching emergency services. He joined the fire department as soon as he could drive. That says a lot about his commitment to this kind of public service. Kroll grew up wanting to be a police officer, and it was his friendship with Brandon McCarty, son of Fire Chief Terry McCarthy, that led him toward firefighting. “I guess it’s been a passion. It’s been a complete ride, that’s for sure,” he said. Very complete in the sense that as a dispatcher and as a firefighter, he’s experienced both sides of emergency response. “That in general just made my job much easier, with knowing what you’re expecting to hear from one side of the radio and what you’re getting,” he said, adding that the view from both sides also benefitted his mapping skills. Kroll accepted the CSI position a couple of months ago and has since then been fully engaged in acquiring the impressive amount of knowledge needed for the job. His duties include identifying and collecting evidence in the field, processing that evidence for investigators, and cataloguing and storing that evidence. He has already competed courses in crime scene processing, latent print techniques, crime scene photography, and evidence and property room management. Kroll continues training in forensics and is working closely with experts in the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Even with an upcoming courses in blood stain pattern analysis and reconstructing crime scenes, Kroll said the actual work is quite different from what the public views on popular television crime dramas. For one thing, testing the evidence and getting back those results take a lot more time. “Working with FDLE, they definitely don’t get results back as fast as you would see on TV when it’s a Frank Kroll works for the sheriff as a collector and custodian of evidence.

Federal grant funds special program to aid students without a home BY STEVE JACKSON Managing Editor STARKE — Home is the place you go where they always take you in. But can you imagine being a school-age youth and not having a home to leave from when you go to school nor to go back to when school is over that afternoon? The Bradford County School System has a special program aimed at those youth who are homeless in one sense or another. “We are already at approximately 130 homeless students in Bradford County,” said Linda Miller in her office. Miller is the McKinney-Vento Student Advocate for Bradford County Schools. Her jurisdiction covers all seven pubic schools in the county: Starke Elementary, Southside Elementary, Bradford middle and high schools, and the three elementary schools at Brooker, Lawtey and Hampton. Her job is to deal directly with “the educational stability” of any school–age youth whose family is grappling with some sort of homelessness, which is broadly defined not only as being without a rented or owned house, but living in motels, trailer parks, campgrounds or emergency shelters, or in cars or public spaces, or sharing housing due to economic hardship or loss of housing. Miller’s job specifies addressing and improving the educational support to any student when they are in the school environment. She said the function of her program is not to put a roof over the head of a homeless student or parent. “I do try to direct the family to a church or some member of the community or to some apartments with subsidies or sliding scale rents so the parents of such children can locate a place to call home,” she said. But even though the lack of a fixed regular adequate nighttime residence is a holistic concern of Miller, her program zeroes in on the problems such a youth faces while at school. “A school youth who falls under our homeless program has the same rights and access and transportation to a pubic education as any other child,” says Miller. “Homeless children may not be separated from the mainstream school environment. “Already this 2015-16 school year the numbers of homeless students are piling up and we know that the number increases as we move on in the school year, especially right after Christmas,” said Miller, shaking her head in a neat, well-organized office at school where she has crates full of school supplies and personal items as well as a store room of clothes for the children in desperate need. Last year, Bradford schools ended with 248 homeless students, according to Miller, a wife and mother of four who lives in Starke. She trains the faculty and staff at each of the seven schools to look for students with the symptoms of homeless: hunger, disheveled appearance, isolated. “We have a bunch of eyes on the lookout so we can help,” said Miller. Miller explained that there actually is no homeless shelter in Bradford County, so most of the “homeless” students are staying with a friend or a family member. “We have been getting more homeless students,” said Miller. “Probably because of all the foreclosures and economic hardship. Sometimes they just end up in Bradford County and don’t have a place to stay.” Miller is starting on the second round of a three-year grant from the federal government. The McKinneyVento Homeless Assistance Act actually dates back to the Reagan era. It was adopted in 1987 and has been reauthorized several times. For the current round, the grant is $75,000 total, the exact amount for the first three years. That means about $25,000 annually for salaries (Miller’s) and supplies. Under the terms of the federal law, Carol Clyatt, the director of accountability and special programs for the district, is the local education liaison. Miller works as a specialist in Clyatt’s department. Officially, the district refers to Miller as the student advocate. “Actually, it’s nice when kids show appreciation and they do,” she said. “Some even call me ‘the lady who helps kids.’” Miller is currently appealing to the public in Bradford County to help meet the basic needs of some of the homeless students as there is just not enough grant money to go around. “Working together I know we can make a huge difference in many children’s lives,” she says. “We can be a ray of light in their unstable situation. If you are interested in helping provide necessities, please feel free to email me at miller.linda@ or call at 904966-6879.” The least deviation occurred in the scores for the English Language Arts portion of the FSA. Bradford’s third-, fourth-, seventh-, ninth and 10th-grade T score was 48, followed by fifthgraders at 47. Sixthand eighthgraders were further behind with a score of 46. Greater deviations were measured on the math test. While the third-, fourthand seventhgrade T scores were 48 or 47, other grades slipped lower. With a T score of 43, fifthand sixthgraders were near the bottom of the list, hanging out with Jefferson County and the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. Eighth-graders tied with the latter school with a T score of 42, although others like Jefferson, Hamilton and Madison were even lower than the state average. Bradford middle and high school students taking the Algebra I end-of-course exam were equally low, with a T score of 43. Geometry students were below the state average, with a T score of 45. The only Bradford test-takers who managed to best the state average were those who took the Algebra II test. Their T score of 51 was even higher than Union County, which, along with neighboring Clay County, surpassed the state average at nearly every grade level on each test. How relevant the test results will be remains to be seen. Stewart’s cut scores, which pass and fail an equivalent percentage of students are reportedly not considered strict enough by some Florida Board of Education members. That board will not meet to vote on Stewart’s recommendations until January. In the meantime, school superintendents are organizing to help ensure their schools and teachers are not affected in what many consider should be a baseline-setting year for future FSA examinations. They’ve said the only grade schools should be assigned is an I for incomplete, and the scores should not be used in evaluating teacher performance.

Stop in and help support finding a Cure for Breast Cancer! at 110 W. CALL STREET STARKE, FL 32091904.964-5764fax New pastor at St. Edward faces challenges with grace at small church By Stephen Flanagan JacksonManaging Editor STARKE — While Pope Francis was solidifying his role as a global icon on a recent visit to the United States, an obscure Polish priest whose specialty is the Gregorian Chant is struggling with the diminishing status of St. Edward Catholic Church in Bradford County. Father Jan Ligeza, unilaterally designated parish priest by the Bishop of St. Augustine in September to replace Father Conrad Cowart, faces the unenviable task of rejuvenating a parish with dwindling numbers and equally dwindling interest. The rural parish is ironically named, indirectly, after the first Catholic born in Starke. From undercurrents reported by more than a few parishioners, St. Edward has been in a slide for about seven or eight years. And many put the blame at the feet of the Bishop of the Diocese of St. Augustine whom they say is disconnected and disinterested in the realities of St. Edward. Ligeza, born in Poland but a resident of America since 1988, is undaunted by the challenges of his new job even though he faces what appears to be an uphill battle. Only half a percent of Bradford County’s total population of 27,049 are listed as Catholics to begin with. The diocese reports 192 parishioners in 2014 but that number is in free fall. “The number of parishioners is low,” Ligeza said, noting his unofficial tally “of no more than 150.” The impeccable green grounds brightened with roses and violet plants scattered among a variety of palm trees and shrubs, the church building (inside and out), the rectory, the parish hall — all the trappings of the tiny St. Edward in an oasis at the corner of US 301 and Adkins belie the challenges facing Ligeza. A beautiful light brown and dark brown trimmed stucco Mediterranean style exterior featuring stained glass windows, and the small but spiritually inviting, calm interior exude a warm and welcoming ambiance. Ligeza was born and raised in Poland in a small town near Krakow “where everybody I knew was Catholic.” In Poland, where Catholics were persecuted and purged under the yoke of Moscow’s communist dominance in the Iron Curtain era, 95 percent of the population is Catholic. Both Ligeza’s parents are now deceased His father worked as the organist at the local parish and his mother was a middle school teacher. Ligeza’s brother is a priest in nearby Gainesville. Ligeza was educated in Poland, Italy (Rome) and then studied theology and philosophy at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Now, he is nearing completion of the Ph.D. in advanced studies in liturgy combined with sacred music (the Gregorian Chant). Speaking English with only the slightest European accent, Ligeza comes to Starke from another small church, the San Juan Mission Church of Branford. Previous to that, he was pastor at St. Paul’s in Jacksonville. He is developing plans to spark interest from parishioners and the general public as well in the Bradford County area. “I would like to have some international dinners in the parish hall,” he said. “Plus we are looking in to the possibility of having bingo.” Plans are also in the works for a celebration of the 75th anniversary of St. Edward, which has a rather unusual background in that it was named ostensibly for a saint in the Catholic liturgy but in reality after a Starke man, Edward A. Pace. Pace, later Monsignor Pace, is considered the first Catholic born in Starke, on July 3, 1861. Pace graduated from St. Charles College in Maryland and studied in Rome where he received a doctorate in 1886 and was ordained a priest in 1885. He was rector of the Cathedral in St. Augustine in 1886 and in 1888 became the first professor of psychology at Catholic University of America, where he had a distinguished career as an educator. Monsignor Pace died in 1938 in Washington. The church in Starke started in August 1941, and was dedicated in October 1941 and named on the Feast Day of St. Edward, the patron saint of Monsignor Pace. Father Ligeza said he is planning events throughout the coming year to celebrate the church’s 75th anniversary and expects a visit by the Bishop to note its founding. The St. Edward’s pastor is inviting all Christians to Mass at the church on Saturdays at 4 p.m. and Sunday morning at 10 a.m. He hopes to reach out in an ecumenical manner to all the people of Bradford County and make the parish hall available to anyone. In the meantime, he is making his rounds at the hospital and the nursing homes in Starke, ministering to his flock, small though it may be. Taking very seriously and conscientiously his assignment, Ligeza said, “Our mission statement at St. Edward is to pray and work together to become more like Jesus and help others become more like him.” He declared of his parish, “These souls are given to me.” Jan Ligeza is the newly appointed parish priest at St. Edward, which celebrates its in 1861.

The trial, held before Judge R.B. Davis, involved charges of false imprisonment and battery on a person 65 years of age or older. Minor Clinton Catledge, Jr., of Starke, was accused of restraining an elderly family member, his mother-in-law, by holding her down and, in the process, hurting her. He was found guilty of the first charge, but not guilty of the second. In his opening statement, prosecutor Luis Bustamante said the case was really all about “power and control,” and the jury would hear a story about Catledge, a man over six feet in height exerting this “power and control” over a 72 year-old woman, who is five feet two inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. The victim, Annie Smith, was called to give testimony and told her version of the events of Jan. 25, 2015 which led to the two charges. Smith said she had just returned home from church at the First Baptist Church of Lawtey, stopping to pick up dinner on the way. She said that when she arrived home she changed into a pair of blue and white pajamas and began eating dinner. She said Catledge came to her door and asked if he could talk to her. She said she noticed that his hair and clothing were wet but let him in. She said she found his presence there strange because he had never come to her house alone, but always in the company of another family member or at a time when one was present. When she started to take him to the home’s front room, she said he roughly grabbed her arm, said “in here” and shoved her into the bedroom instead. She said he then pushed her down on the bed and got on top of her, fully clothed. She said he moved around until he got his legs between hers and held both her hands over her head by her wrists. Smith said this activity went on for about 15 minutes before her granddaughter, Jessica Catledge (the defendant’s daughter), arrived home from her church in Middleburg and walked up on the altercation. Smith said the girl asked ‘Daddy, what are you doing?’ and upon hearing the question Catledge got up off the bed and went outside, taking his daughter with him. When Catledge left the house Smith said she first got her pistol from its hidden location and then called her son. Her son called the police. She said she then changed out of her pajamas because they were wet. When the police arrived she gave them a statement about the night’s events. The state then called the defendant’s daughter, Debra Catledge, to the stand and asked her about the events of Jan. 25. She was emotional and cried during her testimony. She confirmed that she had been at church in Middleburg and really was not expected home that night as she usually stayed with friends in to be closer to her job (also in Middleburg). She said she came inside and saw her father on top of her grandmother on the bed and that he appeared to be whispering something in her ear and that she was not really sure what was going on. She said she heard her grandmother say ‘Ow, you are hurting me.” She said she called out to her father and he immediately responded and got up and took her to the porch. Once outside she said he told her not to tell anyone about the event and that he loved her, then he went to his vehicle and left. When the police arrived she declined to give a statement and when asked why by the prosecution she said tearfully. “I didn’t want my Dad mad at me or to hate me.” After testimony from the defendant’s wife, his daughter and law enforcement, the jury was sent from the courtroom while Catledge decided whether or not he would testify in his own defense. He decided to, stating his reason to Davis and the attorneys present. “I have never been able to tell my side of the story and I would like that chance,” Catledge said. After being sworn in, Catledge told the court that he had been a private investigator for 25 years but was now working as an inspector of vacant and abandoned property and as a carpenter and mechanic. Catledge said he went to the victim’s home to deal with a recurring water heater problem and that the victim had called him a few days before asking him to come. He stated that, on the day in question, he had inspected a house in Bell and was returning home. He said there seemed to be a problem with one of his tires after running through some water, so he stopped to check it. The tire was fine but he said he slipped and fell, getting wet and twisting his back. He said he went on to the victim’s house and that as he was approaching the door saw his daughter’s car on the road coming towards the home. Catledge said upon entering he checked the home’s main breaker box and did not find a breaker tripped. He then went to the closet in the bedroom and checked a secondary box and found no problem there. He said the panel of the water heater enclosure in the closet was open and he reached in to check if the water heater was warm. He said he touched a wire and he jerked back, twisting away from the shock and accidently hit his mother-in-law, who was sitting on the foot of the bed. The twisting aggravated his back and he said it locked (according to him a recurring problem) and he fell across the victim and landed on top of her, at a right angle, on the bed and she started screaming. Catledge said that he tried to get up but his back would not allow it at the time. He said the victim hit him in the side of the head and he then heard something hit the wall, which he thought was her handgun. “She kept yelling and wouldn’t stop,” Catledge said. “I told her that one day she was going to end up killing one of your family with that gun.” Catledge said his daughter See TRIAL, 4A

When he’s out in the field now, he’s more likely to be processing a crime scene than fighting a fire as the new job eats into his volunteer time. “I’m definitely not as active out there as I used to be since I took over this new position with the sheriff’s office, but I still try to make an appearance every now and then,” he said. “I love the fire side, but I’ve really gotten a passion for law enforcement. As Kroll continues to expand his knowledge and take advantage of this new opportunity, he has his sights set on another big goal — becoming a fully deputized member of the sheriff’s office. “If I can get a little step further and become certified in law enforcement as well, I think I’ll be extremely happy,” said Kroll. (L-R) BCSO Capt. Brad Smith, CSI and evidence custodian Frank Kroll and Sheriff Gordon Smith.CSIContinued from 1A came to the door and he managed to get up. He said he was angry and yelling at the victim that she needed to shut up. He said he used expletives due to the pain. He told the court that he had never had any intention of hurting her or keeping her in a place she did not want to be, but that his only intent when he went there was to help her. He said he answered his daughter’s question of “What’s going on?” by saying “Noting,” then left the property and went home. Once there he changed vehicles and went back out for gas, beer, cigarettes and some chicken for dinner. In closing arguments prosecutor Bustamante returned to his theme of “power and control” as a description of the alleged crimes. He said that testimony had shown that no one else in the family knew Catledge was going to the victim’s home that night, alone for the first time ever, to work on the water heater. “He had the opportunity and he took it,” Bustamante said. The defense lawyer Greg Anderson focused on the fact that, by her own admission, the victim had not been injured and that the daughter had walked in on a situation where she did not know what was going on. He reminded the jury that the victim herself had testified that Catledge had never done anything to her before. He also reminded the jury that the victim might have short-term memory issues. After deliberation the jury returned a verdict of guilty on the charge of false imprisonment, but a verdict of not guilty on the charge of battery on a person 65 years of age or older. The prosecution recommended a sentence of five years in the state prison, partially based on the defendant’s previous record, which included a conviction for stalking in Duval County. Judge Davis declined to sentence Catledge until it could be documented whether the conviction was a felony or a misdemeanor and ordered a pre-sentencing investigation. A sentencing hearing was set for Thursday, Oct. 29 at 1:30 p.m.TRIALContinued from 1A Garden Club talks monarchs and milkweedsYou have probably heard that the monarch butterfly is in decline, but what can you do about it?

Scout ornamental plants for scale, grasshoppers, caterpillars, whiteflies, and leaf beetles. If treatment is needed, treat only the affected area and use a Florida Friendly insecticide (soaps, oils, neem, BT) to protect beneficial insects. Grasshoppers are laying eggs so to avoid higher numbers next year, kill manually because insecticides are not effective. Remove old flowers to keep plants in bloom and reduce disease problems. Satsumas ripen around late October, especially if we start getting cool weather.

Source: http://bit. ly/1j0qr6f. Did you know? Corn snakeroot typically flowers summer through late fall. A variety of pollinators are attracted to its flowers. This native occurs naturally in sunny marshes and swamps, along pond edges and in ditches. Its natural range is in the panhandle and in north and central Florida. The common name snakeroot (also known as rattlesnake master, both of which are used to describe the Eryngium genus) may have come from its use in Native American culture as a remedy for snakebite.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor From agriculture to shooting sports, 4-H appeals to a wide variety of interests in Bradford County, but whatever the focus, each has its own relationship with the environment. Paul and Kathy Still are founding a new club that places learning about the natural world front and center of the members’ activities. The environmental club may be new, but Stills involvement in 4-H is not. Paul Still said his mother was a 4-H leader when he was involved as a club member. When he and Kathy moved to Florida in 1979, they became involved with 4-H in Alachua County, leading a club in Newberry. Still also led a 4-H club straight to the Soviet Union back in the late 1980s with donations raised through their service. Like many adults, their engagement faded when their son aged out of the 4-H program. But years later Still has turned to 4-H — with its emphasis on the sciences and preparing youth for the future — to find environmental problem solvers. One of Still’s goals with the club is to get kids involved in the Florida Envirothon, an academic competition program based on natural resources education. The high-school-age participants work in teams of five on solving problems in the fieldoriented program. While learning teamwork, communication and critical thinking skills, they answer questions and conduct hands-on investigations about environmental issues. There are several areas of study, including aquatic ecology, forestry, soils/land use, wildlife and current environmental issues. They do, however, need at least six dedicated members to participate. Their club activities would center on studying and practicing fieldwork necessary to compete. Individual team members can specialize in specific areas, bringing that knowledge to the whole team. Currently there is a regional Envirothon sponsored by the Duval Soil and Water Conservation District, Still said. “We want to get the club going anyway so if we don’t make the Envirothon work this year, then we could possibly make it next year,” he said. The Envirothon isn’t the sole purpose of the club, which is also open to younger students. “One goal is to have the Envirothon, but the other goal is to have a club for all 4-H kids to participate in, with a really strong emphasis on the environment,” Still said. Those who sign up will have a big say in their activities and choosing the club name. They will be meeting at the Sustainable Living Center near Hampton, where they will set up field study sites. In fact, Still said one of the club’s community service projects could be mapping trails for the public on the wooded grounds of the center. Still said the result would be a self-guided trail that people could follow using their GPS-enabled devices, making notes of the plant life that 4-H members have documented along the way. From there, members could also branch out to other areas of environmental interest in the county, including Alligator Creek, Still said. The club is still in the organizing stages, with a meeting coming up later this month. Public and private school students as well as homeschoolers are all eligible to participate. As a themed club, it is open to 4-H members from other established clubs as well. For more information or to become involved, contact the Stills at 352-468-0291 or Who knows horses?

Drew and Ada, who have been married 62 years, earned 35 points out of a possible 70. As winners, they received a onenight stay at the Hampton Lake Bed and Breakfast. Terry and Jennifer, who have been married 30 years, earned 30 points, while Jeff and Carrie (25 years) and Harry and Kristen (four years) each earned 10 points. All couples received $10 in Subway gift cards and were allowed to keep the flower arrangements and accompanying name plaques that adorned the stage. The game began with the wives leaving the stage and entering an isolation room so that their husbands could be asked three questions. The roles were then reversed as the wives were asked three questions while their husbands were off-stage. The final question had the husbands again leaving the stage as their wives provided answers. No. 1: What is your wife most afraid of? Ada Reddish had a hard time with the first question. She could think of nothing she was scared of, be it a mouse, rat, cat or dog. She finally said, the boogeyman. Drew’s answer was the dark. Next came Jennifer Vaughan, who didn’t hesitate answering what she is afraid of: “What he’s going to say. Always.” That prompted Terry to say, “You know, I can’t argue with that, but that’s not what I said.” His answer was snakes. Snakes proved to be a theme. That’s what Harry Hatcher guessed his wife would say, when in reality, Kristen said she was scared of staying home by herself. Carrie Johnson then decided that snakes sounded like a good answer to give, but it was wrong, as Jeff’s answer was, “Living without me.” Jeff’s answer gave the audience a good laugh, with Davis saying, “That may be my fault. Maybe you didn’t understand the question.” No. 2: What one thing of yours would your wife get rid of? Harry Hatcher gave perhaps the most interesting answer: his bongo drums. Unfortunately, Kristen’s guess—although it was clear she just didn’t know what else to say—was his phone. Jeff and Carrie couldn’t agree, either, with Carrie saying all the junk under Jeff’s barn. Jeff’s answer was his credit card. The other two couples, though, earned points for the second question. Jennifer and Terry were both in agreement over his shirt collection. “He’s got this Hawaiian shirt that he keeps dragging out,” Jennifer said. “I’ve hidden it in the laundry room, I’ve put it behind things and he keeps finding it.” Ada said she’d want to get rid of Drew’s dirty workroom, while his response was his dirty shoes in his workroom.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Telegraph Staff Writer Russell Miscally has lived in Bradford County for the past 41 years, since 1974, and he still finds the peace and quiet that he sought when he moved here from Jacksonville with his wife and in-laws. Miscally was born and raised in Jacksonville. His uncle had a 77-acre truck farm in Lacrosse so he was familiar with the general area. So it was here he came looking for a place to live outside of the rush and noise of the city. He found some land in Lawtey and made the move with his wife, Judy, and her parents and put down roots. Later he would move his own mother down as well. While Judy found employment at the Telegraph, Miscally continued to work as a firefighter in Jacksonville, a profession he followed for 35 years, after spending six years (1963-69) working for Seaboard Railroad. Miscally worked mostly in what was know as “combat” in the fire department, although he spent 12 years in the rescue side of the service, he signed on when the service originated and became an emergency medical technician in the process. Then it was back to “combat.” Miscally did not hesitate when asked what the most memorable fired he ever worked was. He was quick to answer, “the Dragon.” In late 1992 lightening struck a Shell Oil tank on the north side of Talleyrand Ave. in Jacksonville, right on the St. John’s River. The tank held 100,000 gallons of gasoline. The main part of the fire was inside the tank, with the heat having tilted the top of the tank, admitting air to feed the fire. Firefighters took seven days to put out the blaze. “I can remember we made special tools and nozzles to fight that fire,” Miscally said. “We pumped out as much gasoline as we could through a hole in the side of the tank while pumping foam down into the top. We had a boat on the river pumping 7,000 gallons of water a minute to mix to make up the foam and we were pumping water to spray the tank itself to keep it cool so it wouldn’t melt. I can still remember the awesome feeling I had when I heard on the radio that the fire was out. It was amazing. I had just finished my shift and was on my way back to the station. The first fire I ever worked was at a crude oil tank on the waterfront, but that one was nothing compared to the Dragon.” Miscally spent the last 17 years of his career at the new Station 51 in Mandarin, working with best friends, Bob Garmin and Tom Read. The trio faced many horrendous wrecks on the Buchman Bridge during their time at the station. Judy was killed by a local drug addict in December 1992, but Miscally kept going, helping others through his firefighting work. While a firefighter, Miscally owned and operated three small businesses, all connected with the support of shopping centers. He started with Russell’s Clean Sweep, a parking lot sweeping air truck, which cleaned parking lots for shopping centers in Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach and Bradford County. Miscally said that soon the owners of the businesses started asking him about taking care of the landscaping as well, so he added a new business to cover landscaping and service. After that, again at the owners’ requests, he started another service business that handled cleanup and removal from businesses moving out of the centers and doing build outs and painting for incoming tenants. “I learned how to build houses and other projects from my father-in-law, Ray Griffin,” Miscally remembered. “We built our houses and I learned a great deal from him about how to build things properly.” Miscally met his wife, Suzette, in 1998 in Orange Park on a blind date. She had worked in sales but once she got to Bradford County she went to work in the school system as a substitute teacher and a teacher’s aide, working at Starke Elementary and Lawtey Community School and on call for Bradford Middle School as well. When Miscally retired in 2004 the couple had a number of things they had planned to do that just kept getting put off by Suzette’s schedule. “One morning the phone rang really early, a sign that it was a call for me to come to a school, and Russell just looked at me and said ‘Don’t answer it.’ Later I retired. We wanted the time to make plans to enjoy our retirement together.” The couple shares a love of fishing and spent many hours out on the water in pursuit of redfish, saltwater trout and flounder. They were members of both the Inshore Fishing Association and the Forrest L. Woods Association and competed in many professional fishing tournaments and both did well. In 2007 Suzette won both the Lady Angler of the Year and the open class Angler of the Year in the same tournament. In that same year, Miscally was ranked second in the country with the IFA. Miscally was also an avid hunter, making several trips to the Continental Divide, ranging from Texas to Alberta, Canada, in search of deer, elk and bear. He also was involved in asphalt auto racing, building open-wheel modifieds that his son drove.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Telegraph Staff Writer STARKE – Get ready for the rumble of Harleys and the happy smiles of bikers having a good time with their friends because it’s that time of year again! Time for the Starke Bikefest. In its tenth year the Bikefest continues to provide entertainment for all and the opportunity for local businesses to make a little extra at the end of summer. Set for this weekend, Oct. 9-10, the town is getting ready for the influx of bikers, many of whom bring their families to the event. Entertainment has always been a highpoint at the bikefest and this year’s lineup is no exception. The bands start to play at 5 p.m. on Friday night with the Southern rock sounds of Blistur until 6:30. At 7 the Howling Wolves take to the stage, offering Southern rock tunes until 8:30. At 9 get ready to rock with the AC/DC tribute band Highway to Hell who will finish out the evenings music, playing until 11 p.m. On Saturday, country band Black Creek Rising will break the ice and get the music flowing from 10 a.m. until noon, followed by the Southern rock stylings of J.J. Strickland from 12:30 until 2. More Southern rock will follow, provided by The Missn’ Piston from 2:30 until 4, then the Jones Bro’s Band will take the stage offering country music from 4:30 until 6. Local favorites, the Ben Carter Band will provide another session of Southern rock from 6:30 until 8:15, then country rap stylists Moccasin Creek will round out the music from 9 until 11. Saturday also offers a number of events, including Devin Wheeler and his reptile show at noon and the annual bike show, sponsored by Capital City Bank, from noon until 2 p.m. Murray Superstore and Lazenby Equipment will have new vehicles and equipment on display and the Chamber of Commerce will be offering event t-shirts for $20. Local merchants will be open for business, so don’t forget them while you shop. Food is always a big part of the event and this year’s offering will provide a wide selection, including hot dogs, walking tacos, seafood, wood fire pizza, BBQ pork, ribs and brisket, Philly steak, funnel cakes and fried Oreos. Besides food vendors there will be sales booths offering oil changes, clothing and apparel, sunglasses, jewelry and tattoos. It was decided that, due to the lack of participation in last year’s contest, that the Miss Bikefest contest would not be held this year, but the Saturday afternoon bike games will be held and offer fun for both participants and spectators. Come and out and enjoy the tenth annual Starke Bikefest and have a family-friendly good time, support our local merchants and listen to some good music. See you there! Starke Bikefest rumbles into town for 10th year Miscally: still enjoying peace and quiet of Bradford County


BY TRACY TATE Telegraph Staff Writer Most people will agree, operating our public school system is one of the biggest bites taken from our tax dollars and also one of the most contested use of funds with many people unhappy about the quality of the education being provided. The fact that there is little measurable correlation between money spent and school performance (at least as measured by state mandated performance tests) just makes the discussion more heated. Our own local three-county area, which includes Bradford, Clay and Union counties, is a prime example of the controversy. In a summary of the facts and figures for all of the county schools in the state, created by the Florida Department of Education and published on its website, the facts are clear – money spent does not equate student performance and teacher experience does not mean better educated students. Of the three counties under consideration, Union County is the highest achieving on state tests, with a 2013/14 school year score of A and a 14-year average score of B. They are also the lowest of the three counties in median teacher salary. In fact Union County is the third lowest paying school system in the state with a median teacher salary of only $39,073 for the current school year (2015/16). Bradford County is the lowest achieving county among the three, with the 2013/14 score of C and a 14-year average grade of D. The median teacher salary, the 45th lowest in the state, is $46,394 for the current school year. Clay County falls somewhere in the middle. The county’s 2013/14 grade was a B, with a 14-year average of B+. Clay is the 40th lowest paying county in the state, with the median teacher salary set for the current school year at $45,733. The difference in scores does not seem to be related to teacher’s pay, but experience does seem to be a factor. In Union County, the lowest paying school of the three under consideration, the average years of teacher experience is 11.65. In Clay County the average years of teacher experience is about the same as in Clay, at 11.5, while in Bradford, the lowest scoring school, the average years of teacher experience is 9.67. The average grade for the counties paying their teachers median salaries in the top 15 for the state is 2.91, a C+, while the grade for the 15 counties paying the lowest median salaries is 2.33, a C. Student demographics are also often cited as affecting student performance, but this does not seem to be the case in these three counties. Union County, the highest scoring, has a per capita income of $13,590, with 19.6 percent of the population living below the poverty line. Bradford County, the lowest scoring district has a per capita income of $17,749 with 18.2 percent of the population living below the federal property line. Clay County figures may not be as pertinent as Union and Bradford since it is the only county which contains a larger city and is contiguous to a major city. Clay County lists a per capita income of $26,577 but still has 9.8 percent of its population below the poverty line. Of the three, Clay County is the only one showing population growth, with a 4.7 percent population increase between 2010 and 2014. For the same time period Union showed a population decrease of 2.2 percent and Bradford a decrease of 6.4 percent. All three counties show the majority of students attending classes in the public schools. Union County is listed as having a total of 2,484 students, 86.6 percent of which attend public schools with the remainder either Dr. Virgil A.

No. 3: Complete the following: The perfect husband is one who ? Drew and Ada agreed on this question, too—that the perfect husband is one who loves his wife. “Being as great a lover as I am, I knew that’s what it had to be,” Drew said of the answer. The other couples’ responses: Jennifer (shops for groceries), Terry (opens the door for his wife); Carrie (does the dishes), Jeff (is someone you can trust); and Kristen (cleans the house), Harry (buys his wife shoes). No. 4: What’s the strangest gift you’ve gotten from your husband? Harry’s guess to this was a blender, while Kristen said bongo drums, which prompted Jeff to crack, “We know what’s going to be in the next yard sale.” Jeff insisted he put a lot of thought into gifts for Carrie, so he could not say that any were strange. He finally settled on saying a negligee. “That isn’t strange,” said Carrie, whose answer was a vacuum cleaner. “No, but it’s good,” Jeff said. Terry said Jennifer had a birthday while she was away from home, camping with a church youth group. He sent her a fruit basket, which he guessed would be the strangest gift he had ever gotten her. “For some reason, she gave me grief about that,” Terry said. Jennifer’s answer was a blender, but she decided to elaborate on why she gave Terry grief over the fruit basket, saying, “We were camping in a tent in North Carolina. What am I going to do with a fruit basket?” Drew and Ada made it 0-4 for the couples on this question, though Drew had an entertaining answer. He once went to Australia on a work assignment from DuPont. While there, he bought an ankle-length kangaroo coat for Ada, saying he didn’t stop to think how such a gift would be received from someone living in sunny Florida. “It was one of the worst mistakes I ever made because I never did see her wear it,” he said. “Can you imagine walking around Starke in an ankle-length kangaroo coat?” Unfortunately, Ada’s answer was a vacuum cleaner. No. 5: Which family member most annoys your husband? Drew and Ada did not agree on this, with Ada saying herself and Drew saying their son Tommy. “We pick on Tommy so much, I just knew it would be him,” Drew said, explaining his answer. Terry and Jennifer didn’t agree, either, though Terry though his answer was a “lead-pipe cinch.” He said his father-in-law, while Jennifer’s answer was her sister. The other two couples agreed. With no hesitation, Jeff gave his brother Chub as his answer, while Harry said his mother-inlaw. Before he gave his answer, though, Harry said, “This is not what I believe in my heart. This is for 10 points.” No. 6: If your husband was an animal, what animal would he be? When asked this question, Terry responded, “What makes you think I’m not an animal?” Again, Terry was sure he and his wife would agree, saying, “She’s got to get this one. I’m going to say a cat.” Wrong. Jennifer’s answer was Florida State University’s horse mascot, Renegade. Terry said, “I didn’t know we had to get that specific,” with Davis replying, “We would’ve accepted horse. Cat, not so much.” Drew said a cat, too— specifically his and Ada’s pet. “She gets exactly what she wants when she wants it,” he said of the cat. Ada’s answer was quite different: a bull. The answers given by the Hatchers were quite different as well. Kristen’s answer was a tiger, while Harry saida squirrel? “This is a tough one,” Harry said before deciding to say squirrel simply for the fact there are a lot of squirrels at their house. It was one of the funniest answers of the night, judging by the crowd’s response, with Davis asking in disbelief, “So you’re telling me and everybody else in this room if you were an animal you think you’d be a squirrel?” After Kristen revealed her answer, Davis told Harry, “You sold yourself short, Rocky.” After hearing two cats and a squirrel, Jeff decided to go for a bigger animal, saying a bear. However, Carrie’s answer was a deer. No. 7: If your house were on fire, what one thing would you grab before leaving? It was up to the wives to guess what their husbands would say on this final 25-point question. Jeff and Carrie failed to agree, with Jeff saying his safe and Carrie saying his guns. Since your loved ones could be given as an answer, Harry said he would take Kristen. Close, but Kristen’s answer was their daughter, Anniston. Terry and Jennifer took the lead when they agreed that Terry would grab his FSU stuff. It came down to Drew and Ada having to agree to win the game. “I’ve got to say it,” Drew said. “It would be Ada.” Ada confirmed that when she Continued from 1B By the numbers: comparing Bradford, Clay, Union schools held up the card upon which she had written, “Me.” The Bradford County Education Foundation wishes to express its thanks to Ricky Thompson for providing the sound system and to the inmate crew that helped set up the event and clean up afterward.

For more information, please Dear Editor: I am surprised that Jeb Bush has the nerve to run for President due to the awful things that happened while his father, brother and himself were in office. He has said time after time that he is proud of his dad and brother for the good job they did as President. George Bush senior caused thousands of people to lose their jobs and to have to file bankruptcy, He declared he wouldn’t have any more military parts manufactured because there wasn’t a need for them, His son went in office after Clinton. The United States was out of debt, people were working, most people were off welfare. The United States was in excellent shape. But along came Mr. Knowitall Bush. People were dumb enough to elect him for eight years. During that eight years he borrowed billions of dollars from Social Security to start the Iraq War just to prove something his dad was unable to prove. The reason? He thought Hussein was making weapons of mass destruction. The only thing he did prove was that Hussein was robbing the Iraq people of their wealth. He never repaid that money back to Social Security. The war continued, he continued to spend money until the United States was totally in debt. Our military was in Iraq supposedly teaching them how to defend themselves and protecting the United States. Well guess what happened! The twin towers in New York were blown up and thousands of innocent people killed. Where was President Bush when this happened? He and Cheney both did things they should have been impeached for. So along comes Barrack Obama, smooth talker, who knew absolutely nothing about being a President. People believed his lies (I was one of them) three months after he was in office I was truly sorry for being so dumb. Obama didn’t impeach Bush and Cheney because he knew he was going to follow in Bush’s footsteps. Now here we are almost eight years later and we are still in debt, our military has been used to protect his Muslin friends, millions have been killed, thousands have been mutilated, some have killed themselves because of the things they saw and had to endure, and some came home with PTSD. Does our great President care? I don’t think so. Speaker of The House Boehner is resigning instead of sticking to his job and helping the people of the United States impeach Obama before he totally destroys us. Jeb Bush, while Governor of Florida, allowed fraud to be practiced in the Department of Corrections. He said he knew nothing about it, but that’s debatable. The guilty ones were caught and sent to Federal Prison but this is still on Bush’s record. They were friends of the Governor. In closing, how can he be a good President when he overlooks things his dad and brother did. They are still being paid the same salary. I think George Bush should have to repay Social Security that money. As a Christian, I’m not worried about the future of the United States because I know God is disappointed in us because we, as Christians, have let him down. But god is still in control. The ones in office in Washington, as well as everyone else will have to face God for the wrong they have done on this earth. Resident, Norma Greene Alyssa W. Sanford, R. Ph.

Hard to see Jeb as good president in light of Bush family history Dear Editor: Among all the other absurdities which currently plague this nation , law enforcement officers in our land are now being targeted by cowardly murderers. (And , no, I ’ m not surprised , since anything resembling common sense has long ago departed this land . ) The bottom line is that the police are being portrayed as “ the enemy, ” thi s in spite of the fact that they daily put their lives on the line trying to protect us. In no way am I saying that every single person who walks the thin bl u e l ine is a sa i nt. There are misfits in every profession. But the va s t majority of officers do the right thing , f o r the right reasons. I believe that anyone who cares about our po l ice should take positive action to show support for them . Fortunately , someone , somewhere has beg u n a project to do just that. It’s very simple , inexpen s ive, and obvious . Pa i nt a blue strip on the curb in front of your home.

It ’ s little enough , but I ’l l bet that any officer who sees either of these d is played wil l be greatly encouraged , especia ll y if the blue lines and b u mper stickers show up in great numbers.

BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor KEYSTONE HEIGHTS — Keystone used an onside kick to build a 13-0 halftime lead, then held on in the second half in its first District 3-4A matchup of the year, winning 19-14 against Gainesville’s P.K. Yonge on Oct. 2. Class 5A Belleview (0-5) visits Keystone for homecoming Friday, Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m. Keystone coach Chuck Dickinson told his team before the game that aggressiveness would be key to beating P.K. Yonge. He set an example for the team with aggressive play calling, ordering two onside kicks in the first half that were recovered by the Indians. Keystone (4-1, 1-0) also attempted three fourthdown conversions, succeeding on one. Dickinson’s tactics kept the visitors’ offense on the bench for most of the first half, with Keystone possessing the ball for 17:22 of the game’s first 24 minutes. The Indians’ first score came with 6:49 in the first quarter, with a 14-play, 80-yard drive that consumed over 9 minutes. Wyatt Harvin finished off the drive with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Ray Trimble, who also contributed to the drive with runs of 24, 4, 9, 6, 2, 5 and 5 yards. Harvin completed four of nine passes for 34 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. P.K. Yonge (2-4, 0-2) also assisted the Indians during the drive with two offsides and one facemask penalty. Trimble kicked the point after touchdown to give Keystone a 7-0 lead. On the ensuing kickoff, Earl Hall recovered the onside kick, which put Harvin and company back in business on the Blue Wave 37. After a 1-yard, Justin Raysin run and an incomplete pass, Harvin was forced from the pocket on third-and-11. The 6-1 senior scrambled for 18 yards to the 20. On the next play, he handed off to Trimble, who got help from a downfield block by Alex Cruz. Trimble reached pay dirt with 5:17 left in the second quarter. The extra-point attempt failed, giving Keystone a 13-0 lead. On the following kickoff, Keystone tried the high bouncer again, and this time, Raysin corralled the ball, giving the home team its third consecutive possession. However, neither offense could gain traction for the rest of the half, leaving an intermission score of 13-0. P.K. Yonge got on the scoreboard after receiving the second-half kickoff, putting together an 11-play, 60-yard scoring drive. The Blue Wave’s Dylan Mulhern capped the drive with a 17-yard pass to Charles Strong. Derrick Herring added the extra point for a 13-7 Keystone lead with 5:37 in the Indians score first 13 points, defeat P.K. Yonge 19-14 to improve to 4-1 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer ALACHUA — Santa Fe had three TD runs of at least 33 yards as well as a fumble return for approximately 85 yards in handing the Bradford High School football team a 42-6 District 3-4A loss on Oct. 2. The Raiders (3-1, 2-0) got off to a quick start with two long TD runs on their first two possessions, but Bradford gave its fans some hope. After allowing 119 yards in the first quarter, the defense held Santa Fe to a total of 117 in the second and third quarters. Bradford, though, struggled on offense, gaining less than 100 yards. The Tornadoes’ only score was set up by a fumble recovery at the Santa Fe 25-yard line. The Tornadoes (3-3, 1-1) look to rebound from two straight losses with a road game against non-district opponent Fernandina Beach on Friday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m. The Pirates (2-4) are coming off a 24-12 win over Jacksonville’s Andrew Jackson. A close first half didn’t seem possible as the Raiders went up 13-0 in the game’s first five minutes. Santa Fe’s B.J. Williams scored on a 48-yard run on the Raiders’ first play from scrimmage. Then, after the Santa Fe defense forced Bradford to go three-and-out for the second time, the Raiders scored on a four-play drive, with Fred Brown getting loose for a 51-yard TD run. The Bradford defense held Santa Fe scoreless the rest of the half, limiting the Raiders to 3 yards per play. Players such as Elijah Brown, Johnny Hernandez, Xavien Jenkins and Greg Ruise made tackles behind the line of scrimmage or for no gain. Santa Fe did have one drive start at the Bradford 31 after an interception, but could gain only 2 yards on four plays. A penalty hurt the Raiders, while Bradford’s Shannon Jenkins tackled Williams for a 2-yard gain on fourth-and-10. Bradford’s offense did cross midfield twice in the first half, but the Tornadoes eventually punted each time after creating longyardage situations. Quarterback Shawn Aaron had a 2-yard run to set up third-and-6 at the Santa Fe 48 on one of those drives, but a bad snap resulted in a loss of 12 yards. Aundre Carter’s 10-yard run on another drive resulted in a first down at the Santa Fe 46, but a holding penalty had the Tornadoes facing a third-and-14 play from the 50. The Raiders put together a more methodical TD drive to open the second half, though it was sparked by another big play—a 37-yard pass from Williams to Austin Maurice— that resulted in a first-and-goal at the Bradford 9. Williams’ 3-yard TD run capped the 10-play, 68yard drive, with Brown’s run on the 2-point conversion making the score 21-0 with 7:13 to play in the third quarter. Bradford went three-and-out on its first series of the half, but was able to get the ball back in good field position when Aaron recovered a fumble at the Santa Fe 25. Carter, who rushed for 45 yards on 16 carries, had a 5-yard run to convert on fourth-and-1 at the 16. Two more runs by Carter moved the Tornadoes to the 8. Zion Barber, who replaced Aaron at quarterback in the first quarter, eventually scored on a 6-yard run on fourth-and-5. The PAT was no good, making the score 21-6 with 47 seconds left in the third quarter. Santa Fe scored twice in a 1:22 span in the fourth quarter. Ale Sheppard’s 33-yard TD run, along with Julian Cromwell’s extra-point kick, put the Raiders up 28-6 with 6:05 remaining in the game. Theriyus Williams’ interception—his second of the game—gave Santa Fe the ball at the Bradford 25, setting up B.J. Williams’ 18-yard TD run to make it a 35-6 game after Cromwell’s PAT. The Tornadoes put together a promising drive, thanks to running back Alvin James, who had seven carries for 37 yards, helping Bradford march from its own 48 to the Santa Fe 14. A fumble, though, was scooped up by Santa Fe’s Caleb Bowers and returned more than 85 yards for the final TD with 43 seconds left on the clock. James finished the night with 52 yards on 10 carries, though the Tornadoes compiled a team total of only 95 yards on 45 carries. Aaron and Barber failed to complete a pass on five total attempts. The Raiders finished with 307 total yards, with B.J. Williams rushing for 145 yards and three scores on 19 carries.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer NEW ORLEANS — Lake Butler native C.J. Spiller had the winning TD for the New Orleans Saints on Oct. 4, scoring on an 80-yard reception on the second play of overtime to give the Saints a 26-20 over Dallas. Spiller, a 2006 Union County High School graduate, caught a pass approximately 20 yards downfield in front of rookie linebacker Damien Wilson, avoided a tackle by safety Barry Church and sprinted the rest of the way into the end zone to give the Saints their first win. The play was also memorable in that it was quarterback Drew Brees’ 400 th TD pass. Spiller is coming off a minor knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery in August and has yet to touch the ball much. After being inactive in week one, he had three rushing attempts and one pass reception in week two, while in week three he had one carry and two receptions. Against Dallas, Spiller had two carries for 10 yards and five receptions for 99 yards. He now has 161 yards rushing and receiving on the season. The former Clemson University standout (2006-09), who was sixth in the Heisman Trophy balloting his senior year, was drafted ninth overall by the Buffalo Bills in the 2010 NFL Draft. In five seasons with the Bills, he rushed for 3,321 yards and 12 TDs on 668 carries, while catching 158 passes for 1,195 yards and six TDs. yards and one TD on 15 carries, while David Shannon added a TD run. After the game, Hurse was quoted in the Telegraph as saying, “We thought the worst we would be would be 8-2, and with a little luck, we could go all the way.” The road to the state title began with a 24-0 win over Baker County to start the regular season—the first of five shutouts. Bradford built its momentum with wins over Santa Fe (28-6), St. Augustine (13-6), Orange Park (41-0), New Smyrna Beach (51-14), Palatka (26-7), Suwannee (34-0), Fernandina Beach (28-0), Columbia County (6-0) and Clay (33-6). Two of those wins are notable in that they were decided by one score. The Tornadoes were hurt by four turnovers (three fumbles, one interception) in the 13-6 win over St. Augustine. St. Augustine actually tied the game at 6-6 on the first play of the fourth quarter, but Bradford answered with an 11-play scoring drive. Dwight Elder had a 22-yard run and gained a total of 46 yards on the drive, which was capped by Falcon’s 2-yard TD run. In the 6-0 win over Columbia, the only score occurred in the third quarter. Douglas blocked a punt, which was recovered by Calvin Varnes at the Columbia 45. Falcon rushed for 19 yards, while Elder had a 10-yard run on what would be a nine-play TD drive, capped by Agner’s 3-yard run into the end zone. On defense, Falcon and Agner each had an interception to end potential scoring threats after the Tornadoes’ TD. Bradford punched its ticket to the championship game with a 14-7 playoff win over Auburndale. The Tornadoes led 14-0 at the half, getting two touchdown runs from Falcon. The first score was set up by Jim Godwin’s fumble recovery. The drive featured runs of 8, 12 and 15 yards by Agner before Falcon scored on a 7-yard run. Falcon’s 8-yard TD in the second quarter was set up by his own 13-yard run. Auburndale cut into the lead in the third quarter after intercepting a pass and returning it 26 yards to the Bradford 9-yard line. Bradford’s Leaton Morgan had an interception at his own 20yard line to end an Auburndale threat. In all, the Bradford defense created four turnovers. Only four teams gained more than 100 yards against the Tornadoes that season. Bradford allowed an average of 90 yards per game in its 10 regularseason games and one playoff game. (The Telegraph-TimesMonitor did not have the stats for Hardee in the state title game.) Opponents averaged 48 yards rushing and 42 yards passing. Offensively, Bradford rushed for an average of 258 yards per game, while passing for 98 yards per game. Bradford repeated as state champions in 1966, outscoring opponents 327-86 en route to going 11-0-1 and defeating Plantation 20-6 in the title game. NO EGELS AUTO SALES904-964-6461www 1018 N.

She was suffering excruciating pain. After praying with her he offered her a book and said, “This book brought me much comfort while I was ill a few years ago. You will enjoy it greatly and it will bring you much peace. It will be most helpful!” “Thank you,” she answered. “I’m well acquainted with its contents.” “Have you read it?” he asked. “More than that,” she replied. “I wrote it.” It is always comforting to be able to talk with someone who has experienced pains or prob lems that are similar to our own. They have been where we are and know and understand our pain or suffering, sadness or sor row, fears and doubts, questions and concerns. There is a sense of understanding and that brings a closeness or connection. And when we go through dif ficult times and are comforted by our Heavenly Father, we must realize that “God comforts us that we might comfort others who need comforting.” Often the “unwanted gifts” come from God as a “special gift” that equips us to understand, care for and help others when they “are going through the valley filled with deep shadows.” Prayer: Lord, give us strength to overcome the trials of life through your power and the hope we have in you. In Jesus’ name, amen. Scripture for today (Nehemi ah 8:10): Then he said to them, “Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” It’s about the right choice BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer STARKE — The public is invited to join members of Bradford High School’s 1965 state-championship football team at the Friday, Oct. 16, breakfast for this year’s team at the First United Methodist Church of Starke (200 N. Walnut St.) fellowship hall at 8 a.m. David Hurse, who coached the 1965 team, is scheduled to speak. That night, the Tornadoes host district rival Keystone Heights for homecoming. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. The breakfast is free, but please reserve your seat by calling LaTanya McBride at 904964-6864 no later than Tuesday, Oct. 13. Community State Bank is sponsoring this event. Heading into the 1965 season, the Tornadoes had good reason to be optimistic as they went 8-1-1 in 1964. What they wound up accomplishing was going undefeated for the third time since 1960 and outscoring opponents 337-46 en route to winning the Class A state title by defeating Wauchula Hardee 39-0. The championship game featured another dominating performance from a defense that finished the year giving up an average of three points a game. The Tornadoes were strong from the start, holding Hardee to minus-3 yards on nine plays in the first half. Overall, Bradford recovered three Hardee fumbles. The offense scored three TDs in the first half and another three in the game’s final 10 minutes. Quarterback Donnie Falcon rushed for 65 yards and one TD on 10 carries, while completing 15-of-21 passes for 226 yards and three TDs. Eddie Douglas had two of those TD receptions, finishing with seven catches for 112 yards. Joey Reese caught Falcon’s other scoring toss. Mickey Agner rushed for 83 state champs to be honored at BHS breakfast Spiller TD gives Saints OT win attending private schools or receiving home-schooling. In Bradford County 81 percent of the 4,003 total students attend public schools, while 19 percent are divided between private schools (14.3 percent) and home schooling (4.7 percent). Clay County has a much larger number of students, a total of 39,293, but the breakdown differs in only a few percentage points with 90.4 percent attending public schools, 6.8 percent in private schools and 2.8 percent in home-schooling. There does not seem to be any magic formula as to what can make a school score high. Teacher salaries, teacher experience and demographics, all the targets of blame from the public at one time or another, seem to have little bearing on the score a school receives on state tests. The county paying the highest median teacher salary in the state, Monroe County, still averages a B grade or lower despite paying its 562 teachers a median salary of $58,330. Between the highest paying schools and the lowest paying there is only a .6 difference in score, not even a full letter grade. The old adage of throwing money at a problem does not seem to provide a cure in this case. Continued from 3B

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer STARKE — Keystone Heights High School’s volleyball team completed a perfect season in District 4-4A after its 3-0 (25-16, 25-20, 25-22) win over Bradford on Oct. 1. The Indians defeated Bradford and Interlachen twice to compile a 4-0 district record and earn the top seed in the upcoming district tournament. Bradford, meanwhile, completed district play with an 0-4 mark. Keystone built an 18-7 lead in the first set until Bradford scored seven straight points with Faith Anderson serving. The Indians, however, continued to build their lead until closing out the set with three straight points—including an ace—with Jordan Jennings serving. Keystone led 16-8 in the second set, but the Tornadoes again had a brief run, scoring five points with Emily O’Neal serving. O’Neal had an ace during the sequence, which also included a kill by Chelsea Creighton. Kills by Kaitlyn Cline and Abi Loose helped Keystone increase its lead to 19-13. Cline later had two aces as the Indians went up 22-15. Two straight attack errors with Creighton serving helped Bradford pull to within 24-20, but a kill by Keystone’s Bailey Zinkel ended the rally and gave the Indians the win. The Tornadoes took a 6-4 lead in the third set, getting a couple of aces from Nyasia Davis, but a five-point stretch with Loose serving gave Keystone a 14-8 lead. It was 23-17 in favor of Keystone after a kill by the Indians’ Hanna Jones. The Tornadoes scored three points with Shania Gainey serving and later held serve trailing 24-22. Zinkel closed out the match with her second straight set-winner. Zinkel finished the match with nine kills, while Jones had seven. Jennings had seven digs, while Anna Wilkes and Ashley Rauch had 15 and 11 assists, respectively. Cline, Jennings and Wilkes each had five aces, while Loose had three. (Bradford) Earlier in the week, the Indians traveled to Interlachen, winning 3-0 (25-6, 25-15, 25-23) on Sept. 29. Loose and Cline had 13 and 10 kills, respectively, while Jones had eight. Jennings and Zinkel each had four aces, with Jennings adding six digs. Wilkes and Rauch had 21 and nine assists, respectively. Technical difficulties in regard to an iPad application the Keystone coaches use prevented the Telegraph-Times-Monitor from reporting stats from the Indians’ wins over Palatka (Sept. 21) and Clay (Sept. 22). However, the stats from the Clay match, a 3-2 (25-22, 23-25, 23-25, 25-20, 15-12) win, are now available. Loose led the team in kills with 22, while Zinkel and Cline had 10 and six, respectively. Wilkes had 32 assists, while Jennings had five digs. Cline, Loose and Delaney Grantham each had three aces. Indians defeat Tornadoes, improve to 4-0 in district Tigers make it 3 in a row with win over Tornadoes

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer CLINTON, SC — Donelle Williams, a first-team Big South All-Conference selection last year, is off to a strong start in his final year playing linebacker for the Presbyterian College Blue Hose, having recorded 57 tackles in five games. Williams, a 2011 Bradford High School graduate, tied his own school record for tackles in a game with 18 (seven solo) in a 21-0 loss to Chattanooga on Sept. 26. His first 18-tackle effort occurred in his freshman year. This past Sunday, Williams recorded 13 tackles in a 33-21 loss to Western Carolina. It was his third straight game with double-digit tackles. The former Tornado keeps adding to his existing school record for career tackles, which he set last year. His 10 tackles in a game against Ole Miss in the 10 th week of the 2014 season gave him 281, breaking Justin Bethel’s record of 280, which was set during the 2008-11 seasons. Williams now has 346 tackles, which is the sixth highest number in Big South Conference history. Following the end of the season, Williams will play in the FCS Senior Scout Bowl on Dec. 19 in Myrtle Beach, SC. The game gives professional football scouts the opportunity to watch Division I Football Championship Subdivision players. The former Tornado began his Blue Hose career by winning Big South Freshman of the Year honors. He recorded nine tackles in his first-ever game, while his 83 on the season ranked him third in the conference among linebackers and second on his team. As a sophomore in 2012, Williams had a team-high 103 tackles. It was the third highest total in a Presbyterian season and ranked third in the Big South Conference that year. Williams, who was a secondteam all-conference selection, had five games with double-digit tackles, with a high of 16 against Charleston Southern. Williams recorded a little more than 20 tackles—including 11 against Wake Forest—in the first three games of 2013 before his season was cut short by an injury. He redshirted that year so that 2014 was his junior year. In 2014, Williams led Presbyterian with 81 tackles and was named first-team allconference. He recorded 12 and 11 tackles, respectively, against Northern Illinois and Coastal Carolina as well as the aforementioned 10 against Ole Miss. Presbyterian’s remaining games this season are: at Coastal Carolina Oct. 10, Charleston Southern Oct. 17, GardnerWebb Oct. 31, at Liberty Nov. 7, at Monmouth Nov. 14 and Kennesaw State Nov. 21.
