Man dies

sitting on

train tracks

The Starke Police
Department received a
call at 2:44 a.m. on Aug.
16; stating that a train had
struck a person at the CSX .
Railroad crossing on S.R.
16 in Starke.
According to SPD's Capt.
Barry Warren, officers met
with the train conductor,
who told authories the train .
had struck a person who
appeared to be sitting on Thornton
the track. When officers
responded to the location on North Thompson
Street, they observed a person lying face down
in the east railbed.
Stephen Lane Thornton, 39, of Starke was
pronounced dead at the scene.
Warren said investigation revealed that
Thornton was sitting on the eastern most rail
with.his feet in between the rails. The conductor
and engineer both stated that Thornton appeared
to be sitting there with his head down on his
knees. The emergency braking system -was
engaged, but the train was unable to stop before
striking Thornton.
Police Chief Jeff Johnson said that remaining
safe around rail lines is important in a town that
has numerous crossings. He said he would also
like to remind everyone that railroad tracks and
the rail bed are federal property and should not
be traveled by vehicles or people on foot.
"To be trespassing on the railroads is the least
of my worries," said Johnson, "but the danger
involved should be enough to keep anyone from
them. With the rails and rocks, the footing is
dangerous and can prevent a safe escape from a
moving train."

Woman sentenced for death of passenger

Stacey N. Bailey, 24, of
Starke has been sentenced to
15 years in the Department of
Corrections followed by 10
years of probation for a car
crash in the summer of 2006
that killed the passenger in her

On Aug. 21, 2006, Bailey
fled from police through three
counties, with speeds exceeding
100 mph.
During the trial, Bailey
admitted to snorting cocaine
prior to the chase and said that
she had not eaten for two days

The 2.5-mile long Union
County project was a
priority of the Union County
Commission, which submitted
it as a prospective project back
in February of this year.
The FDOT worked with
cities, counties, metropolitan
planning organizations and
other transportation partners
throughout the state to develop
the list of selected projects.
Thirty percent of the highway
and bridge funds were allocated
for locally prioritized projects.

DOT acquiring property to widen intersection

Telegraph Editor

At hearings held Aug. 17,iJudge
Phyllis Rosier entered orders
of taking for small portions of
property at the corners of at
U.S. 301 and S.R. 100 where the
Walgreens and CVS pharmacies
The Florida Department of
Transportation needs portions
of.those corners to carry out the
project to improve the turning
radius at the 301-100 intersection.
This will include removing the
concrete posts that currently
support the traffic signals at each
corner and replacing them with
signals suspended by two mast
arm signalization poles.
According to DOT, the project
should make turning 'at the
intersection easier, particularly
for tractor-trailers, and improve
motorist and pedestrian safety.
'DOT's Joe Jordan, District 2
right of way manager, explained
the legal process the state uses to
acquire land if it cannot come to
an agreement with the property
owner to purchase the land. A
lawsuit is prepared and filed with
the court. After a hearing on the
order of taking, DOT deposits
the amount of money it believes
the property is worth with the
court, he said.

After that, Jordan said DOT's
attorney works with the attorney
for the property owner to attempt
to find a resolution'. In effect, he
said, DOT's attorney becomes
a negotiator and tries to reach
a. settlement on the property
If a settlement cannot be
reached, then the parties will
prepare for trial, which will
be preceded by mediation.
If mediation is unsuccessful,
then a jury trial will decide on
the taking of the property and
compensation for the property
This process of taking property
by eminent domain is common
when land is needed for public
purposes, like highways or utility
rights of way. Jordan said it's a
fairly simple but time consuming
process. Still, the department
tries to resolve eminent domain
issues within two years of filing
a lawsuit and hopefully sooner
than that, he said.
DOT is seeking a permanent
easement of 340 square feet and
a temporary easement of 147
square feet at the Walgreens
(northeast) corner. The appraiser
valued the permanent easement
at $8,900, and the temporary
construction easement at $2,750.
for a total of $11,650.
The defendants in this case are

listed at Greenhouse LLC d/b/a
Greenhouse Starke, Walgreen
Company and Universal
Engineering Sciences Inc.
At the CVS (southwest) corner,
DOT is seeking a 533 square-foot
permanent easement and a 101
square-foot temporary easement.
The appraiser valued the
permanent easement at $13,500
and the temporary easement at
$2,000, for a total of $15,500.
The defendants are listed as
Thomas R. Andrews, Regency
Realty Group Inc. and Holiday
These were the cases heard by
Judge Rosier Monday morning.
She entered orders of taking on
both after DOT's attorney briefly
questioned a land surveyor,
project planner and property
appraiser about the easements in
question. ,
There was no one .present in
opposition, although an attorney
representing Regency Realty
Group did sit in on the hearing.
A third hearing was to take
place on another of the corners,
-but it turned .out DOT had come
to an agreement with the owners
and closed on the property.
'Shirley Neill Andrews and Island
Food Stores were the defendants
named in that case for the portion
of the northwest corner DOT
needs at the Shell station site.

DOT paid $53,000 .for a
permanent easement on 950
square feet at that location
and $5,000 for a temporary
construction easement of
438 square feet, for a total of
DOT has also purchased a
portion of the fourth and final
corner, listed under the ownership
of John Torode. A former Texaco
.station, this southeast corner of
the intersection .now serves as

Brainy BHS students to will earn letters as well

- Telegraph Editor

The Bradford County School
Board gave its blessing to a
program the new high school
principal will introduce this year
awarding academic letters to
high achievers.
Principal Doug Thoburn said
just like athletes are awarded
letters to recognize their
achievement, school scholars
will be awarded letters to show
off their accomplishments.
.Thoburn said it's his goal
to see academic and athletic
achievement equally rewarded.
We'fdiobgihie that athletes,
after meeting, certain criteria,
receive the athletic letter 'that
they can wear on a letter jacket.
I've hid great success at a couple
.,other high schools I've been in by
instituting the academic letter,"
Thoburn said.
Academic letters would be
earned by accumulating points;
Each nine weeks as student can
earn three points by making
straight A's, two points by making
all A's and B's, and another point
by having perfect attendance.
'Points would also be awarded
of FCAT achievement. Scoring at
Level 3 in reading, math, science
and/or writing will be worth one
point. Score at Level 4 on any of

those tests, and the student will
earn two points. Three points are
possible by scoring at Level 5 on
any of those tests;
When students accumulate
15 points, they will be awarded
their academic letter. For each
additional 15 points earned,
students will be awarded a gold
bar to wear on their letters.
The academic letter will,
of course, be the letter B for
Bradford, but instead of a sports
emblem, it will feature the lamp
of knowledge..

Transmission Pipeline

Certification Application

1. Application number NG-09-02 for certification to authorize location of corridors for, and construction, operation and maintenance of, a natural gds transmission pipeline, laterals, and compressor stations was filed by Florida
Power & Light Company (FPL) with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on July 30, 2009. The Pioject is known as the Florida EnergySecure Line Project (Project). The locations of the proposed facilities
are shown on the accompanying map, and run generally from Bradford County, Florida to Martin County, Florida with laterals running into Brevard County, Florida and Palm Beach County. Florida. The case is pending before
the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH), Case No.09-4151, prior to action by the Florida Governor and Cabinet, acting as the Siting Board, pursuant to the Florida Natural Gas Transmission Pipeline Siting Act
(NGPSA), Chapter 403, Sections 403.9401 - .9425, Florida Statutes (F.S.). FPL is seeking certification of the Project under the NGPSA.
2. FPL's Project consists of a proposed 30-inch diameter natural gas transmission pipeline connecting a receipt point near Florida Gas Transmission, LLC's existing Compressor Station 16 located west of the City of Starke
in Bradford County to a termination point at FPL's existing Martin Plant iocafe near Indiantown in Martin County, Florida. In addition to this mainline pipeline, two lateral pipelines will deliver natural gas to FPL's existing
Cape Canaveral Next Generation Clean Energy Center (CCEC) and existing Riviera Beach Next Generation Clean Energy Center (RBEC) via new 24-inch diameter and 20-inch diameter pipelines, respectively. Two proposed
compressor stations also are included as part of the Project; the "Bradford Compressor Station" will be located in Bradford County and the "45th Street Terminal Compressor Station" will be located at FPL's existing 45th Street
Terminal in Palm Beach County.
3. FPL's Project application seeks certification of corridors in which the proposed natural gas mainline pipeline and lateral pipelines will be located. FPL's "Mainline Preferred Corridor" originates in Bradford County near County
Road 235 and traverses east for approximately 50 miles before turning in a southerly direction and terminating at FPL's Martin Plant in Martin County. Approximately. 265 miles of this 278-mile corridor are collocated with
existing utility rights-of-way. FPL's "Cape Canaveral Lateral Preferred Corridor" extends northeast for approximately 16 miles from the mainline pipeline in Orange County to the CCEC in Brevard County, and FPL's "Riviera
Beach Lateral Preferred Corridor" extends southeast for approximately 6 miles from an existing FPL oil/gas pipeline near Florida's Turnpike in Palm Beach County to the RBEC in the City of Riviera Beach. FPL's preferred
corridors will pass through the following local government jurisdictions: Bradford County, Clay County, Putnam County, Flagler County, Volusia County, Seminole County, Orange County, Osceola County. Brevard County, Indian
River County, Okeechobee County, St. Lucie County, Martin County, Palm Beach County, City of Hampton, City of Palatka, City of Palm Coast, City of Bunnell, City of Cocoa, and City of Riviera Beach.
4. FPL is proposing five secondary corridors along the Mainline Preferred Corridor and one secondary corridor for the Cape Canaveral Lateral Preferred Corridor. These secondary corridors, as well as FPL's preferred corridors,
are fully described in the Project application which is available for review at the locations listed below.
5. The application for certification is available for public inspection online at www.dep.state.fl.us/siting (click on "Applications in Progress") and at the following locations during normal business hours:

Siting Administrator: Michael P. Halpin, P.E. . 456 West Pratt St.
3900 Commonwealth Blvd. Tallahasee, FL 32399 - Starke, FL 32091
6. DEP and other state, regional, and local agencies will be studying the application and preparing reports and recommendations on the Project. Interested persons should review the application and bring matters of concern to
Z . the attention of the appropriate agency and FPL as soon as possible. Information regarding the appropriate contact persons at the reviewing agencies may be obtained from Michael P. Halpin at the DEP's Siting Coordination
Office, whose contact information is listed above,
7. Consideration may be given in this proceeding to pipeline corridors alternate to the corridors preferred by FPL. These alternate corridors may be proposed by persons other than FPL and may suggest an alternate route for
portions or all of FPL's pipeline corridors. To propose an alternate corridor, persons must request to become a party to the proceedings (see paragraphs 9 and 10 below), and then must file a notice of proposed alternate
corridor with the Administrative Law Judge, all parties, and any local governments in the jurisdiction of which the alternate is proposed, by no later than 50 days prior to the originally scheduled certification hearing,

The first initiative is to provide
seasonal flu vaccinations to
students in kindergarten through
fifth grade. she said. The health

funding through the Office o
Immunization in order to be abli
to do that.
Swine flu. or HINI
vaccinations will also b

the public information campaign

e \vho would like to receive it.
Ho\w\ever, doses won't be available

Fighting the flu: What you should know

The Department of Health
and Centers for Disease
Control has recommended
that, as always, people with
respiratory illnesses should
stay home from work or
school to avoid spreading
infections to others in the
community. %
Avoid close contact with
people who are coughing
or otherwise appear ill.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose and mouth. Wash your
hands frequently to lessen
the spread of respiratory
People with cough, fever

and fatigue, possibly with
diarrhea and vomiting,
should contact their
If you think you have
influenza, officials say, call
your health care provider
and discuss whether you
need to be seen in their office
or emergency department or
stay home.
Swine influenza viruses
are not transmitted by
food and a person cannot
get swine influenza from
eating pork products. The
infections appear to spread
from person to person.

their patients.
Of course, vaccinations will
not take place in school without
parental consent. Vaccination
is voluntary, and parents or
guardians will have to sign
consent forms before their
children are vaccinated. In
the case of the swine flu, two
permission slips will have to be
signed since the vaccination will
be administered in two doses:
one when the vaccine becomes
available and the follow-up 21-
28 days later.
With school beginning,
Holland said public health
officials are being vigilant about
the opportunity that presents for
the spread of the flu. There have
been outbreaks over the summer
in camps and other group
situations, and classrooms offer
the same environment.

"We're going to be monitoring
that closely, and ive really want
to get the vaccine in the schools
as soon as possible to be able to
reduce as much of that outbreak
as \ve can," she said.
The C'enters for Discase
Control has nevertheless backed
down on the recommendation
that schools close if a cluster of
flu cases occur. Holland said the
severity of the illness had not
been as dramatic as anticipated.
Those considered most at
risk are pregnant women, then
caregivers of children six months
and younger, health care workers
(emergency responders) and
finally school-age children.
More information will he

the schools and the media as it
becomes available.

North Florida counties plan for H1N1 swine flu outbreak

Monitor Editor

Last Monday, Keystone
Heights Emergency Planner John
Ward told the Keystone-Lake
Region Business Association
about Clay County's preparations
for the possibility of a fall swine
flu epidemic. He didn't stay long
enough to present his PowerPoint
presentation-he had to run off to
another meeting on the subject.
As of 10 a.m., July 29, Florida
had seen 3,321 reported cases
of the HINI virus since the
beginning- of the year. Most
troubling, however, was the
report that 584 of those cases had
been reported in the latest eight-
day. period.
The implication,
epidemiologists were saying, was
that the possibility of a swine flu
epidemic was growing. So far,

there have been 34 deaths from

Health officials are particularly
concerned about the fact that the
HINI showeNd up in summer
camps around the state-none
of them here in the Lake Region.
Now it's time for school to begin
and there's no .possibility of a
vaccine until mid-October.
As of July 29, Alachua County'
had reported 64 cases: Bradford
had seen just two, Clay had
seen 14 (and one death reported
Aug. 14), and Putnam and Union
counties had only reported one
each. Duval County has also seen
64 cases and three deaths.
Ward's printed materials,
compiled by the Center for
Disease Control, the Department
of Health and state and county
health offices showed that, so
far, the highest incidences of the
flu have been in south Florida,

especially in the Miami and
Orlando areas.
Dade County alone has seen
963 reported cases. Broward
County reported 330 and Palm
Beach County 329.
Ward said Clay and other local
counties will receive a shipment
of the swine flu vaccine, once
'it's clinical trials are complete in
Between 40 million and 160
million doses of the vaccine will
be manufactured and distributed
at start-up. Ward said he expected
to see the vaccine available for
voluntary vaccination in public
schools as soon as it is released.
State health .officials expect
to receive 4.8 million doses of
the vaccine at start-up, with
additional doses to be received
each week thereafter.
Unlike seasonal flu, the H INI
virus seems to affect children and

young adults, and for unknown
reasons doesn't appear to affect
the elderly as often unless they
have underlying chronic health
and respiratory problems.
Once the vaccine arrives,
the C(lay' County Advisory
Committee is suggesting that
the first vaccinations will go to
pregnant women, people who live
with or care for children younger
than six months of age, health
care and emergency service
workers and people between the
ages of six months and 24 years.
People aged 25-64 who have
chronic health disorders or
compromised immune systems
will also be vaccinated. These
include the obese and people
with asthma and other chronic
By now, more than one million
Americans. including 60.000
Floridians, have been infected

with the flu virus.
The advisory committee
is especially concerned that
the public understands the
difference between seasonal flu
and the HINI swine flu virus.
The symptoms of swine flu are
similar to those of seasonal flu.
The Center for Disease
Control estimates that about
36.000 Americans die from
complications of seasonal flu

each year. So far, 34 deaths
from HINI swine flu have been
reported in Florida. Most people
recover from an HIN I infection
without medical intervention.
At present, swine flu is still
considered to be a relati\ el\ mild
strain; however, health officials
say they cannot predict w hat will
happen in the future.

Lake Butler's Spires IGA of today

Spires said that back when he
began working for the store, the
product line was much different
than it is today.
"Half the store w\as general
merchandise and men's and
women's apparel and half was
grocery in a building that was
about 5,000 square feet," said
Eventually, selling large
quantities clothing and general
merchandise became a thing
of the past at Spires. "It got to
. where I had to buy the clothing
items in such large quantities,
for instance, I had to purchase
three dozen purple blouses in
the. same exact style, and;, ina a
liule io n'liketlis, that; ewa;sn'ti

a liquidation sale to rid the
store of the merchandise when
its new focus became grocery
In the middle of the afternoon
on Labor Day 1990, with a
store full of shoppers, a box
bin located outside behind the
store caught fire. "We would
tear down our cardboard boxes
and put them in the bin and
people would come around and
take the. boxes whenever they
needed them," Tommy said.
Never finding out for sure
how the fire originated, the
fire marshal's- investigator
determined it was probably due
to a lit cigarette dropped in
the bin. The investigator told
Spires that 99 times out of
100, cardboard boxes would
never go up in flames from a
cigarette, but unfortunately, it
happened to.Spires.
Tommy recalled, "It was
about 4 o'clock in the afternoon
and my son-in-law Ricky came
up to me and said there was a
fire in the box bin and grabbed
the extinguisher. I went back
there and saw it, grabbed a
water hose -and thought, this
isn't a big deal and we can put
this out. I mean, it looked like -
something we could put out in
10 minutes."
IAs a precaution, Tommy
called the fire department and
announced for the customers to
clear the store.
Tommy's son, Mike, who is
store manager over 62 other
employees, has vivid memories
of that day. "I was bagging
groceries for Kate Epperson,"
Mike said. "She wanted to go
back in and get her milk and
although nothing looked wrong

checks they had written to the
store that were destroyed in
the fire and replaced them.
"The outpouring of community
support after the store burned
.was overwhelming," Tommy
After receiving the insurance
settlement, a new and improved
Spires IGA store was up and
running five months later. The
site was completely cleared
and a new, larger 15,000-
square-foot store was designed
to better serve the needs of.
.customers. Tommy said the
new store, which opened on
Jan. 16, 1991, was much more
energy efficient, with a different
Slayout, parallel rack ;system,
and, of course, fire sprinklers.
"I was fortunate to have
just enough insurance on the
building," Tommy said. "I
never really paid that much
attention to the coverage I had,
but you can bet I know what it
is now." The store continued
to be lucrative and in 1998,
another 5,000 square feet was
added on.
Tommy attributes the
staying power of Spires IGA
to his dedicated customers.
"A small, rural community is
the best place in the world to
do business," he said. "You
know everybody, and .they are
generally concerned about you
and you're concerned about

best to meet the needs of
his customers, saying that
sometimes he'll get a number
of requests for certain items
that aren't feasible through the
traditional route of stocking the
shelves. He actually goes to a
competitor's store inGainesville
to purchase the items for the
store so his customers have
the convenience of buying their
desired products locally. "Our
customer base is tremendous,"
said Tommy.

teams such as the cheerleaders,
Tigerettes or basketball players
to hold fundraiser car washes
or bake sales.
He is also supportive of other
local community groups such
as allowing Girl Scout cookie
sales or a place for Babe Ruth
baseball sign-ups each year.
Although Tommy professes
to be a Union County Tiger
fan through and through, he is
also a dedicated supporter of
athletics in Lake City where
he has a second Spires IGA
store. He said he did get a bit
of teasing from his Lake Butler
customers during a football
game in Lake City. Richardson-

opened the Lake City store at
the end of 1991, starting out
with just 8,500' square feet
and eventually expanding
to about 14,000 square feet.
The store employs 28 Lake
City residents, including the
store manager. "We've come
to know a lot of people in
Lake City," Tommy added,
"and with it being a larger
community, we have a
customer base between 8,000
and 10,000 people."

said. "As in Lake Butler,

Yet a third Spires IGA store

Baldwin next May. The store
is very similar to the Lake
Butler store, and gives back
to the Baldwin community
by, among other things, hiring
all local staff and supporting
its athletic teams. Also like
the Lake Butler store, Spires
IGA is the only grocer in the
Baldwin area. Before the store
opened, Baldwin residents had
to drive to either Macclenny or
Chaffee Road in Jacksonville
for their grocery shopping.
The Baldwin store is unique
in that it was built through
a community development
block grant.After determining
there was a_ need for a local
grocery store, the city of
Baldwin council contacted
the IGA supply warehouse
to locate a grocer who would
come to the area.
It was a slow moving
process, Tommy said, taking
about three years to get the
store up and running. When
first approached by IGA.
Tommy said he was rather
hesitant about operating the
Baldwin store. "We had to
think about it carefully before
considering," he said. He

feet, a challenge within itself
to provide a full line grocery
store in such a small space.'
In addition, Tommy said
that although there was a
grant, he still had to invest a
ton of money into the store.
"The grant only covered the
shell of the building. We had
to finish off the inside, put in
the equipment and stock the
shelves," he said.

Having so much money
invested in the Baldwin
store, Tommy said things
were pretty tense for a while
because the store was. not
meeting projections.
Tommy explained, "When
you're an outsider opening a
new business in a small town,
it takes a while for it to earn
people's trust...for people
to believe we're going to be
there for them."
The store has come along

and sales reflecting heavy
on meats, dairy and frozen
In light, of the economic
situation, Tommy said his
stores are managing to hold
up, mainly because residents
in the communities his
stores serve remain faithful
"I. don't recall ever seeing
anything like what we are
experiencing now," he said.
Not just sales-wise, but also
in the realm of employee
turnover as well.
"We have always hired a-
lot of students, and it used to
be-two or three years ago-
we could tell kids to keep
checking back with us, and
we'd have an opening every
couple of months or so."
Until just recently, and
particularly with part-
lime employees, there
was a constant rotation of
employees, particularly at the
end of each school year.
"That's good for us in that

we are keeping the same
employees, but we also
enjoyed the fact that we could
employ and work with several
kids at different times around
their ball, band or college
schedules," Tommy said.

Everyone anticipates the
economy picking up again,
and when it does, Mike
offered a few pointers for job
seekers. When considering
employees, he stresses the
importance of being able to
fill out a job application.
"People should be .able
to fill out an application
properly, spell correctly and
write legibly," he said. "Also,
their communication and
verbal skills are a big thing.
They need to speak clearly
using proper English."
Tommy added that people
should dress appropriately
when asking for a job.

"We've actually had people
come in here in cutoffs and
no shirt, approach us and
say, 'Hey man, you got any
work?' For this line of work,
we don't expect them to come
in a suit and tie, but they
shouldn't have the waistline
of their pants hanging down
at their knees, either. Just
dress respectably."
In case you haven't checked
it out, Spires IGA has had a
cooked-to-order grill as part
of their bakery/deli service
that was added in the late
80s. The cook staff provides
weekly lunches for the Lake
Butler Rotary Club and Mike
will attest they offer excellent
customized hamburgers and
awesome breakfasts.
"The best doughnuts around
are in our bakery," he said.
People especially discovered
the -good breakfasts offered
at Spires back during the
2004 hurricanes. "The day
the power came back on, we
served breakfast until three in
the afternoon," Mike said.

In a hand-delivered letter

substandard work performance
and reprimands.
The letter, signed by Interim
City Manager Karen Nelson,
instructed Palmer to return her

keys and vehicles.
Palmer was given an
opportunity to respond to the
letter in writing and to appear
at the Aug. 17 meeting to
plead her case. Apparently no

the Billy Anders home as its
Yard of the Month for August.
The Anders family lives on
Woodland Drive.
The yard was nominated by
Patty Anders, who appreciated
her husband's hard work and
loves her quiet retreat.
The Anderses moved from
Lawtey five years ago, and
brought many of their plants
with them. They are proud
to say all but one survived.
Bricks from the family home's
chimney were also recycled
into pathways.
Gardenia, oleanders and
caladium line the side of the
front yard, along with azaleas
and a 15-year-old rabbit's foot
fern on the opposite side. The
fern gets its name from its root
system that feels like fur.
Purple porter weed, hibiscus
and red cannas are part of the
butterfly garden. A small piece
of kalanchoe, a slow growing
succulent with scarlet blooms,
was given to Patty by her cousin
and now covers a six-foot area.

Tigers working to build upon success of '08 season

Telegraph Staff Writer
*Higlh wins makes for a
pretty good year, especially
when a team was coming off
two consecutive, losing
Union County High School
players, though, are not
satisfied. Seniors like
quarterback Chris Alexander
and linebacker Mason. Dukes
know that last year was just a
small step in the right
direction. Now, the two want
to say they helped lead the
Tigers back to the playoffs
during their final season in the
Purple and Gold.
The rest of the players on
the team all seem committed to
making that happen. Alexander,
said the team goal is to earn a

playoff berth and make a run
for the Class 2B state title.
Players are putting forth the
effort now, he said, in.hopes of
making that a reality.
"Everybody knows what
they have to do to get the team
closer to that goal," Alexander
When Alexander says
everybody, he means
everybody. You would expect
returning 'seniors to work hard
toward that end, but Dukes
said the Tigers have a bunch of
underclassmen who\ are
working hard to help the team
achieve its goal.
Ultimately, though, the
burden falls on the shoulders
of the returning juniors and
seniors, as well as sophomores
who played prominent roles

last year, head coach Andrew
Zow said. Dukes knows that.
"We've got to hustle on the
field and set an example for
the younger kids," Dukes said.
"If you watch (Alexander) at
practice, he's all the time
pepping us up."
Alexander said for the team
to be successful, the players
have to go full speed every
play. It's not enough for a
player to have one great play
and then lose focus for thenext
couple of plays .after that,
Alexander said. In essence, he
said, the Tigers must improve
every play and every day
throughout the season. .
""You just can't stay the
same every day because
everybody else is working
hard, too," Alexander said,
referring to the other teams in

the state. "You've got to
continue to build and get better
at the things that you want to
Alexander has obviously
embraced his coach's
philosophy. Zow, too, talked
of continuous improvement,
saying, "We've just got to
continue to get build every day
on what we had the year
before, the week before and
the day before." ...
What the Tigers had last
year was their first winning
season since 2005, capped by a
postseason bowl victory over
Baldwin. However, the team
would rather have earned a
berth in the regional playoffs.

Keystone girl to compete in national equestrian event-

Telegraph Staff Writer
Carly Kowalchuk of
Keystone Heights. has 'always
felt at ease around horses,
which may explain why she's
had success in such a short
period of time, resulting ii her
qualification for the Sept. 10-
13 Marshall and Sterling
League National Finals in Newc
Carly, I11, has been riding.
horses for seven years, but has
been competing in English
riding competitions for only
the past year and a half. Her

trainer, Denna Johnson of Full
Partners Farm in Newberry,
said she is currently at a level
that takes most people six to
seven years to attain.
"For her to be where she is
at this point is pretty amazing,"
Johnson said.
Full Partners Farm had four
members of its riding team
qualify for the national
competition, three of whom
Swill actually make the "trip to
New York and compete. Carly
has qualified for the Marshall
and Sterling pony medal and
children's hunter events.

Current points standings on the
Marshall and Sterling Web site
have Carly ranked 30"' in the
country in the M&S pony
medal division and 57 " in
children's hunter.
"She has been working all
year to qualify for it," said
Trish Kowalchuk, Carly's
Carly had to compete in four
grade-A shows to earn
qualifying status, where she
was judged on such things as
posture, appearance, her
interaction with the . horse-
and how it interacted with

her-while maneuvering it
through a course of jumps in
the hunter competition, while
her ability to handle the horse
was judged in medal events.
However, she and her horse
have been involved in so many
more shows.
"Oh, my gosh, a lot," Carly
said when asked how many
shows she's been in this year.
"Every single weekend."
Yet one could say Carly's
preparation goes back much
further than this year. She was
in preschool when a woman
visited her class with a pony in
tow. She was the child who
seemed interested.in riding the
pony, which she did.
"All the other .(children)
were.crying," Trish said. "She
was .the only one who would
get on it."
Carly grew up riding ponies
wherever she could, such as at
flea markets. :She likes all
animals, noting . she has a

whole bunch of puppies at
home, but there's something
about horses that have an
added appeal. She guessed it
was simply the fact she can
ride them.
The Kowalchuk home also
has three horses. Trish said
Carly, during the school year,
will make time every morning,
to tend to the horses before
leaving home. When she's
home, it's nothing for her to
jump on one of the horses at
the spur of the moment and go
for a ride.
"The next thing you know,
you see the horse go riding
by," Trish said.
Carly took riding lessons
from a couple of people, but
her last teacher before hooking
up' with Johnson at Full
Partners Farm quit teaching,
which 'left her daughter
distraught, Trish said. Trish
attended an event at Shands
Hospital that featured a silent

auction. One of the items up.-"
for big was a package of free
lessons and a camp provided
by Full Partners Farm: Trish
submitted the final, winning;
"That's how she got to go;-
out to Full Partners," Trish
said. -
Trish said a month di'd not
even go by before Johnson
asked Carly to join the farm's:
equestrian team.
"She's just extremely
talented, and she's just a really:
hard worker," Johnson said.
Carly talked of the' first.
event she competed in as part.,:
of the team. She competed in
the walk/trot event and rode a:,
horse named Spirit.
Oh, yeah, she was also

"We have pictures of her

The Episcopal Diocese of
Florida Web site included
information on several

resolution gave bishops more
local control in the ordination
of gay priests and bishops.
According to Brokus and
Riechmann, Bishop Howard
has made public statements
that he would not allow the
ordination of gay priests in
his diocese, or the blessing of
gay marriages. (Which are not
legal in Florida at any rate.)
Father Mackie said last
Saturday, "Gay priests are a
non-issue at Trinity."
The reason, Mackie said,
was because he felt there are
more important and pressing
social issues to confront-

Buyer beware
Dear Editor:
fn these tough economic
times, a land home package
from a mobile home dealer
sounds attractive. Beware of
who you're dealing with,
My wife and I were
attempting to do just that. We
signed a- contract with the
realtor on the land with a $500
non-refundable. deposit. We
did a pre-approval and a good
faith contract with the mobile
home dealer. Please be careful
you may learn from this.
- The loan did not go through,
after a period of what seems an
unimaginable long time.
Working with the lender and
mobile home realtor, they
suggested .we put down
monies on the closing cost on
the good faith contract. We did
to the sum of $2,250. After the
loan did not go through, we
signed over the $500 to the
land realtor because it was
understood from the .beginning
that is was a nonrefUindable
deposit.. This is where it gets'
tricky. I
We went back to the
mobile hoe home dealer thinking
ie p would. hale our.. .ihe.-,.
returned to us. When the check
was handed over, the language
used was, "We will put this in
our safe and when we close it
will go on the closing cost."
To. make it short, they
deposited the money right
away and refused to give us
back our $2,250.
I spoke with the manager
who was nice and smiled and
he explained it to me this way;
"We ask for money because if
the loan does not go through it
is our decision to give the
money back to you." I asked
why did you not ask for a non
refundable deposit like the land
realtor so it would be clear.
The reply was, "We have
expenses and we intend on
getting paid."
So take this lesson to learn,
our initial closing cost was
$5,700. We lost almost half of
that on a good faith agreement.
The intention of the mobile
home dealer was to'get all the
closing cost Please beware
and take this advice, do not
give any money on a good
faith contract. It will not be
returned. You can look at this
as a glass half empty or a glass
half full. If this keeps one
person from making the
mistake my wife and I did, I
see it as a glass halffull.

face," Trish said. "She did
everything she was supposed
to do, but she was scared."
She does not get nervous
anymore, Carly said, though
she admitted she's a little
nervous about competing in-
the Marshall and Sterling
League National Finals, an
event that will be much bigger
in scope than anything else
she's been a part of.
"Hopefully, I'll do good,"
she said.
Carly is a laid-back rider
who does not let pressure get
to her, Johnson said. She said
Carly has a chance to earn a
win at the national event, but
should . do well overall
"I expect her to finish in the
top 20," Johnson said.
The only problem Johnson
foresees is how Carly adjusts
to .competing in bigger rings
and jumping bigger fences at a
multi-day event.
"It may be a little more
firing than what she's,used to,"
Johnson said.
Not that Carly isn't used to
work in the form of hours in
the saddle. Besides performing
in competitions, she rides and
works with her horse
throughout the week as time
permits, taking care not to
overwork the horse in the
process.. To b.esuccessful, it
takes that kind of dedication
12 months out of .the year,
Johnson said. She said that
kind of commitment tends to
be too much for children as
they enter th6ir teen years and
develop other interests.
Johnson said it will be
entirely up to Carly if she
wants to keep it up, but
Jphnson seems to think she
"She seems to have the
drive," Johnson said.
As of now, Carly said she
certainly wants to continue
riding and competing as she
gets older. She even has a goal
of qualifying for the U.S.
Olympic team, which Trish
said Johnson told her is
certainly a possibility.
Competing in the Olympics
would be mind boggling, Carly
said, but if she were to do so,
she would be jusi like her
favorite rider: Beezie Madden.
Madden helped the U.S.

capture gold medals in team
jumping at the 2004 and 2008
Olympics. She also earned a
bronze medal in individual
show jumping at the 2008
Not only would Carly like to
follow in Madden's footsteps,
but in those of Johnson as
"I want to own a farm one
day, give lessons and train
horses," Carly said.
For now, though, Carly'S
focus is on the Marshall and
Sterling League National
Finals. She and her family are
currently attempting to raise
money to help fund the trip.
There are . various fees
associated with the event,.
including . those for
participation and those for
getting the 'chance to work
with your horse in the rings
prior to the start of the

Several fundraisers have
been held, with more planned,;
for the Full Partners Farm'
team. For example, Carly
raised $298 toward iter
expenses at a garage sale.
Carly and her mother are.
currently asking . local
businesses if they would like
to help sponsor Carly since she
will be the only person fronIg
Keystone competing in this?
national event. If anyone ie
interested in sponsoring CarlyE
or assisting her in any way,
please call Trish Kowalchuk art"

Summer art students

Monitor Editor
Gayle Bone retired from
teaching kindergarten at
Keystone Heights Elementary
School last June after 27 years
of service. It was Bone and a
colleague, Rebeccas Layfield,
who produced the school's
annual circus. (See the Lake
Region Monitor, June 25.)
Bone has also taught summer
art classes at Faith Presbyterian
Church each summer for years.
This week, she mounted
an exhibition of artwork by
her summer students at the
Keystone Heights Library.
This summer's theme in
Bone's classes was Spanish
painter Pablo Picasso and
cubism. Bone recently returned
from a trip to Spain, where
she studied Picasso's brands
of modernism. This year's
students tried their own hands
at cubism, working in drawing
and painting, linoleum block
prints, and papier-machd.
The 35 summer students
attended either of two morning
classes or one afternoon class at
Faith Presbyterian
Church during the a
summer months. '' -
The students -
ranged from six ..
years of age to ,' '
adulthood. They
studied 'African
masks and other
artists whose
work influenced

Lake Butler and Baker County
Starke Rotary Club
President Mike Lee organized
the event, which he believes
will pave the way for-greater
opportunities of service in the
future through the combined
efforts of the area's four clubs.
The format breaks from a
long-standing Rotary tradition,
whereby the district governor
visits every club in his or her
district. This year, some
Rotary officers recommended
group district meetings.
Chief among the advantages
of the group model are the cost
and time savings for district
governors, some of whom
would otherwise visit many
clubs in their area. Orange
Park, Gainesville and
Jacksonvile, for example, have
three or'more separate Rotary
Clubs, each meeting at
differing .times throughout the
week. I
Each club at the joint
meeting presented its Rotarian
of the Year award. Starke

"We play against Hamilton
next Friday. We have to be in
game shape. We have to be
ready to get after people. This
week, we're. trying to see
who's tough enough to get
through camp."
