UCHS teacher

recognized for

innovative program

Times Editor

Union County High School
teacher Renae Alien was one of
25 Florida teachers selected to
participate in a two-week bio-
medical explorations program at
the University of Florida's Cen-
ter for Precollegiate Education
and Training.
The program, Bench to Bed-
side, involved the research of
new drug therapies and the dis-
coveries made through clinical
trials to the manufacturing of the
new medication for public use.
Held in June and July 2010,
the program required a class-
room follow-up during this
school year.
Allen, along with the other
teachers who participated, were
required to create a proposed
action plan describing how she
would transfer the Bench to Bed-
side experience in the classroom
or community.
The teachers returned to UF
this week to share their class-
room results at the Florida Ju-
nior Science Engineering and
Humanities Symposium and to
be recognized by scientists and
peer teachers for their innovative
classroom contributions.
Allen's action plan involved
implementing a new biotechnol-
ogy unit in three of her classes:
one chemistry and two physical
science classes. She also shared
the biotechnology unit with the
high school's health occupations
classes, howeverttheir classroom
results were not a part of her pilot

During the first nine weeks
grading period, Allen structured
her lesson plan to include an
introduction to biotechnology,
the use of laboratory tools and
equipment and pipettor activity
(chemical droppers).
The students also gained an un-
derstanding of DNA replication
and did a lab extraction of straw-
berry DNA, studied the structure
of viruses, cycles of infection
and made 3D virus models.

Probably the most fun for the
students was the pilot testing of
the new gaming software, "Mis-

Developed by the National
Science Foundation in conjunc-
tion with the University of Flor-
ida, the gaming software allows
students to become a character

The goal of the game is to deter-

State attorney investigating

'certain practices' of WS

Times Editor

The state attorney's office in
Gainesville has confirmed that
certain practices of the town of
Worthington Springs are cur-
rently under investigation.
While officials did not confirm
the focus of the investigation, a
recent audit cited a number of
questionable payments made to
vendors using state grant funds
received by the town. The audit-
ing agency is required to report
certain deficiencies to the state
and it is up to the state to decide
if further action is taken.
According to the audit report,
Worthington Springs received
grant funds from the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection for improvements to
Chastain-Seay Park and City
Hall Park. Funds were then
paid to STEM Line Services
LLC, and Sierra Corp. as sub-
contractors on the projects.
Those two companies are owned
by Worthington Springs Mayor
John Rimes III and his wife.
The law prohibits government
employees or elected officials
from doing business with the
governmental body or agency
they represent.
In addition, a company owned
by Worthington Springs Town
Council Member Jeff Rimes
known as RMS Construction,
also received state grant funds
through Worthington Springs
for work done at the parks as
well as the airport and road
According to the audit,

STEM Line Services received
$75,798 from state funds given
to Worthington Springs for City
Hall Park and Chastain-Seay
Park. Sierra Corp. received
$2,435 from state funds for City
Hall Park. RMS Construction
received $26,838 from state
funds for improvement projects
to the airport, roads and parks.
The audit report showed that
the mayor was responsible for
obtaining bids and quotes for
.Worthington. Springs projects
and services. Then, without a
formal vote of the town council,
he alone decided which company
was awarded the bid or the
The auditor recommended
formalizing the town policies
and ensuring that the full council
is more active in purchasing
decisions. It was further
recommended that all vendor
contracts exceeding $10,000
should receive approval from the
full council at a public meeting.
Other less serious
issues still faced
by Worthington
The audit revealed another,
less serious,.deficiency regarding
IRS reporting requirements.
Any action taken related to this
issue will likely come from the
IRS-and some of the tax-related
problems are already being
IRS requires that any vendor
paid more than $600 for goods
and services must receive an IRS
form 1099 from the entity that
paid them.

In order to fulfill the 1099
requirement, the town must
receive W-9 forms from all
vendors it does business -with.
The audit revealed the town of
Worthington Springs was not
getting the required W-9s nor
was it providing vendors with the
required 1099s.
The following companies were
paid by the town, but not issued
1099s: STEM Line Services
LLC, Lou's Concrete LLC, Lou's'
Paving LLC, Robbie Worrell
Construction LLC, Jordan's
Concrete LLC, Tony Todd,
Wood Treaters LLC, Cemex
Construction Materials Florida
LLC and W.C. Fencing.
Yet another significant
deficiency noted by the auditor
was that the town was not
keeping receipts and invoices on
file to back up payments made to
Worthington Springs paid a
total of $369,459.38 to Cemex
Construction for a road project,
but the only invoice on file
amounted to just $22,100.
In December of 2010, there was
a dispute between the town council
and the Union County Board of
County Commissioners regarding
an interlocal agreement. For
years, the parties have maintained
an interlocal agreement
The agreement stipulates that
the county provides a waste
collection site and pays all tipping
fees incurred for the town's waste.
A paragraph of the agreement also
stipulates that owners of vacant

Sale of bath salts banned

in Florida due to abuse

Telegraph Editor

Florida Attorney General Pam
Bondi tried to put an end to get-
ting high with certain bath salts
by issuing an emergency rule
Feb. 2 that makes their sale, dis-
tribution or possession a felony.
Local law enforcement re-
sponded by visiting local retail-
ers and pulling stock of bath salts
containing methylenedioxypy-
rovalerone, or MDPV. and simi-
lar substances. Products sold un-
der names like Vanilla Sky, Ivory
Wave. Pure Ivory, White Rush,
Purple Wave, Ocean Burst and
Bolixian Bath \\ere commonly
sold, according to the attorney

general's office.
A number of Lake Butler resi-
dents were recently arrested for
stealing bath salts to get high,
and law enforcement reported
several cases wherp people have
gotten sick from snorting bath
Drugs like MDPV can cause
powerful and dangerous hallu-
cinations and aggression. People
have reportedly been driven to
violence because they hallucinat-
ed monsters or endangered them-
selves because they believed they
could fly.
Other dangerous side effects
include muscle damage, high
blood pressure, kidney failure,
seizures, severe paranoia and

panic attacks.
According to the attorney
general's office, powdered bath
salt products have been linked to
self-mutilation and drug-induced
deaths to include an increased
risk of suicide.
The 90-day rule issued by
Bondi places these bath salts in
the same drug class as cocaine.
Legislators are expected to take
up an outright ban of products
containing MDPV and similar
drugs during the upcoming leg-
islative session, which begins in
Bath salts are not the only tar-
get of such measures. Rep. Janet
Adkins is filing a bill that would
outlaw synthetic marijuana.

'I started the first da\ of the
second nine-weeks in October of
2002 and I haven't looked back,"
Dekle said. "I have enjoyed my
career change and I have really
enjoyed working with students."
When it comes to teaching stu-
dents who struggle with math,
Dekle said it is critical for stu-
dents to see that if they persevere,
their hard work will pay off.
"Too many times students hit
a roadblock, then shut down and

give up. I try my best to show
them how to work through their
struggles to solve the problems
and find success," she said.
. Once students gain confidence
in their abilities, Dekle said she
enjoys seeing them flourish. One
method she uses to hold students'
attention is relating math work to
what's important in the average
teen's world. She uses competi-
tions, sports, video games, cur-
rent TV shows or celebrities to
pique their interest and answer
the age-old question, "When are
we ever going to use this?"
Dekle said she also has-the
luxury of using a SmartBoard,
graphing calculators, computers
and CPS clickers in her class-
"The technology we have in
this district is a great asset when
trying to reach our students,"

said Dekle.
When asked what she-loves
most about her job, Dekle said
she really enjoys the interaction
she has with students. She finds
it rewarding to see a student
solve a problem and realize they
can be successful. She also en-
joys interacting with students on

and yearbook, to name a few.
"I think an integral part of
being a successful teacher is
building relationships with your
students. One of the great things
about working at Union County
High School is the closeness
of the community. It's a place
where you are truly able to watch
these young people grow up
and become successful adults,"
Dekle said.

Dorsey said, "It is a great expe-
rience for the kids to work with
not only kids from other schools,
but also to experience differ-
ent conductors." She added that
the clinicians did a great deal of
teaching the students, reinforcing
what the band directors are doing
in their respective classrooms.
"The goal is for the kids to
bring their experiences back
homd to the rest of the students

Boots 'n BBQ begins today in Starke

Telegraph Editor

The Santa Fe College Brad-
ford Fest Boots n' BBQ Cook-
Off has attracted more than 80
competitive teams, but fantastic
food is just one of the many at-
tractions at the Bradford Count)
fairgrounds beginning today.
This year's festi% al opens this
evening, Thursdas, Feb. 10,
:at 5 p.m. with a Southorn gos-
pel concert featuring several of
well-known favorites, including
Crossfire Warriors, Joyful Voic-
es and The Backwood Boys.
Don't let a rainy forecast keep
:.you away. If it's too wet for the
:main stage, the concert will move
indoors, according to festival co-
'ordinator Kathyrn Lehman. Ei-
ther way, the concert is sure to
move and inspire, plus there will
be good eats on sale, including
hamburgers, hot dogs, incredible
desserts (like strawberry short-
cake from the Starke Woman's
Club), coffee, cocoa and more.
At 7:45 p.m., there will also be-
a preview of the Minute to Win
It competition between local law
enforcement officers and fire-
Doors open again on Friday,
Feb. 11, at 5 p.m. The night will
be filled with entertainment, in-
cluding the best local talents
squaring off in two Bradford Idol
'contests. The kids compete at 6
.-p.m. and the adults take the stage
at 8:45 p.m.
SThe next six contests in the
.Minute to Win It competition

will take place at 7 p.m., and
special guest comedian Alex Or-
tiz performs his act beginning at
7:45 p.m. Ortiz has headlined at
The Apollo, Funny Bones, and
The Improvs. Recently he has
been filming a children's sitcom
called "Chefsters," which pro-
motes nutrition.
Barbecue teams will begin
rolling in on Friday to prepare
for Saturday. Refreshments will
again be on sale. Most notably,
perhaps, The Sweet Tooth Caf6
will open, selling homemade
desserts from the best local bak-
ers by the slice.
Steel Country will also per-
form following Bradford Idol.
In its three years on the scene,
Boots n' BBQ has become a
premiere event. It is the Florida
Barbecue Association's 2011
state championship, a qualifier
for the Jack Daniels barbecue
competition and a Triple Crown
event awarding $16,000 in prize
money. It's no surprise then that
Boots n' BBQ draws the best.
If barbecue is your reason for
attending, then Saturday, Feb.
12, is your day to chow down.
Beginning at 1 p.m., you can buy
barbecue from the teams by using
Pig Bucks instead of U.S. dol-
lars. (Pig Bucks are readily avail-
able at the festival and help dol-
lars go to scholars.) Once you've
had your fill, cast a vote for your
favorites in each category (ribs,
brisket, pork and chicken). The
most crowd-pleasing competi-
tors will receive special People's
Choice awards.

The Bradford High School
Band will actually open the
event on the main stage Saturday
morning at 9 a.m., but bring your
appetite early because the Starke
Woman's Club will be serving
breakfast-including strawberry
pancakes-beginning at 7 a.m.
The Santa Fe cheerleaders will
follow the opening ceremony
at 10 a.m., and at 11 a.m., Clay
.County Swing Ensemble will
perform selections dating from
the 1930s as well as more con-
temporary favorites.
Comedian Alex Ortiz returns
to the stage at 1 p.m., followed
by the Carport Critters at 2 p.m.
and Southern rock favorite Jim-
mie Van Zant at 3 p.m.
Craft vendors set up for busi-
ness, and cooking demonstra-
tions in an outdoor kitchen pro-
vided by Bryan Nazworth will
begin at 9 a.m. Saturday. Chef
Susan Smith, culinary instruc-
tor from the Bradford-Union
Career Technical Center, is up
first, followed by Virginia Autry,
former owner of the Strawberry
Tea Room. This brand new event
will also feature a taping of'"The
Chefsters" television series at
11 a.m. and Chef Randal White
from "Dishing it Out with Ran-
dal White" at noon. Chef Rob-
ert Tulko from "Good Morning
Jacksonville" will appear at I
p.m., followed by "The Chef-
sters" again at 2 p.m.

tween Sheriff Gordon Smith and

appearances and autographs from
wrestling champs Dory Funk Jr.
and Pinklon Thomas. There will
be more than enough to keep the
kids busy, including, games, a
petting zoo, a kiddie tractor pull,
rock climbing-, bounce houses,
face painting, putt putt and more.
The Bradford County Education
Foundation will host Bingo for
all ages that day, and the Eugene
L. Matthews Museum will have
historic items on display, includ-
ing a special presentation from
Barbara Crawford and Patsy Sil-
cox from 1 to 3 p.m.

results of the Kiss the Pig fund-
raiser, which will be revealed at
4:30 p.m. on the main stage, fol-
lowed by the barbecue awards at
It can't be forgotten that all of
this fun is fora good cause. Boots

money for Bradford County stu-
dents. In 2009, 30 teams com-
peted and $10,000 was raised
for the Santa Fe Foundation. In
2010, 70 teams competed and
$20,000 was raised. Now with

Tigers Gosha, Holmes accept scholarships to Arkansas, Troy

Regional News/Sports Editor
Union County High School
senior Lonnie Gosha picked up
the Iniveristy of Miami cap in
front of him, but dropped it
onto the floor. He bent down
out of sight to retrieve the cap,
only to pop back up with a
snarling razorback on his head.
Gosha donned the whimsical
hal that could only belong to a
fan of the the University of
Arkansas Razorbacks. Now,
Arkansas fans will be cheering
for Gosha, who made it official
2n National Signing Day that
the Fayetteville school was
where he would be going
during a ceremony in front of
the entire student body on Feb.
2 in the UCHS gymnasium.
Afterward, Gosha admitted
he felt he deserved the chance
to have fun with making his
choice known after going
through a stressful recruiting
"I just wanted to play around
a little bit," he said. "The
coaches are playing with you
to get you to go to their

Crane to

play soccer

at UCF
Regional News/Sports Editor
It would seem Keystone
Heights High School senior
Noel Crane was destined to go
to the University of Central
Florida and play soccer, buit
she admitted it was still a bit of
a shock that she was going to
accomplish just that after
signing a letter of intent during
a ceremony at the school on
Feb. 2.
"I honestly never thought it
would happen," she said, "but
I never stopped trying. It's
such an honor, really."
Crane has been attending
soccer camps at UCF since .he
age of 12-the same age se'
began playing competitively
on a club team in Jacksonville.
She admitted she already had it
in her mind that UCF was her
"dream school."
Therefore, when so many
other schools, such as Florida,
Florida State, Florida
International, Alabama,
Auburn, South Carolina and
Tennessee, to name a few,
showed interest, Crane went
with the school she was
familiar with. Watching other
schools' teams play during her
campus visits, she decided the
UCF team played more of the
possession-style game she's
used to playing on her club
Crane also likes UCF coach
Amanda Cromwell.
"I love her style of
'coaching," she said. "I knew I
would fit in best there." ,.
She also likes the fact of
going from the small town of
Keystone Heights to the big
city of Orlando.
"That's a big change," Crane
said. "I like that."
Crane scored 89 goals
during her career at Keystone,
but that's not really her game.
She played as a defender on
her club team-which is -h-t
she'll do at UCF-but
Keystone coach David
McCollum played her at
"It sort of gave her the
opportunity to do something
different," McCollum said.
It worked out for Keystone,

which had a strong middle
consisting of Crane and Meg
McCollum-two players who
'have known each other for

they start to call you every
single day and night."
Gosha, who admitted he was
relieved National Signing Day
had come and gone, said he
liked the Miami campus, but
that the big-city atmosphere
didn't suit him.
He likened the atmosphere
of Fayetteville to that of his
home in Providence, which is
why he made a verbal
commitment to Arkansas
before Feb. 2.
"I made the decision on
Arkansas after I took my visit
(in late October)," Gosha said.
There were people who put
in their two cents' worth on
where Gosha should go to
school, but in the end, he said
he followed his heart and made
his own decision.
Union head coach Ronny
Pruitt said it helped that Gosha
was able to talk to UCHS
grads Andrew Zow and CJ.
Spiller, who once went
through the. same' recruiting
"That really made a world of
difference," Pruitt said.
In fact, Spiller and Zow,
who was the Tigers' head
coach prior to resigning after
the 2009 season, were both in
attendance at the ceremony.
Spiller, a Clemson graduate

who currently plays for the
Buffalo Bills, even helped
Gosha with his signing-day
"Actually, he gave me this
dress shirt," Gosha said. "I
guess it was for good luck."
Holmes admitted the process
of deciding upon a school was
difficult for him as well, but
like Gosha, he followed his
"I went where God thought
was best for me," he said. "I
talked to Him (Feb. 1), and He
told me Troy was the plade for
Schools such as South
Florida, Central Florida and
Middle Tennesse were
interested in Holmes, but
Holmes said he saw himself
and Troy as a good match.
"They throw the ball a lot,"
he said. "I'm a wide receiver,
so that's what I like."
Though they play on
different sides of the ball,
Pruitt said Holmes and Gosha
both bring the same thing to
the table-speed. It's one of
the main factors that made
Gosha such a heavy recruit.
"You don't find many big
guys that move that fast,"
Pruitt said. "When he gets
going, he's difficult to stop.
He's goingto be a 300-pound
player at the next level. When
you get 300 pounds moving
4.8 40s, it's unbelievable.
"Ybu can do a whole lot

with a kid like that."
. As for Holmes, Pruitt said he
thinks he's going to surprise a
lot of people. That's because
he simply didn't have an
explosive year as a senior as
the team made the transition
from a passing offense under
"In his defense, he didn't
have a lot of stats he would
have liked to have had this
year," Pruitt said. "We didn't
throw the ball a whole lot, but
he hung in there and kept
doing what he needed to do.
It's paid off today."
Holmes said he realizes what
an opportunity he has in front
of him.
"It's just a blessing," he
said. "Everybody doesn't get
the chance to go on and play
college ball. After high school
is over, it's done for some. I
just want to thank God for
blessing me with the ability to
play at the next level."
Holmes gained 900 all-
purpose yards in 2010 as a
receiver, punt returned and
kick returned, while Gosha
registered 140 tackles, 15
sacks and two interceptions.
Pruitt said both players
worked hard, and in the end,
achieved their goals.
"It's tremendous," Pruitt
said. "Both of them get to play
a sport they love and get an
education for free. That's what
they've worked for."

club team. It was that club
team experience, as well as
attending soccer camps, that
helped Crane develop the skills
that make her a "tremendous"
player," McCollum said.
McCollum said club
participation is time
consuming and requires a
financial commitment from a
player's family. Therefore, a
lot of credit for Crane's
signing goe' io her parents,
Chris and Sally Crane.
"They've always been
willing to support her,"
McCollum said.
Crane made that support pay
off by always striving to better
her game. She said she was
named her club team's most-
improved player year after
"If there's something I can't
do, I'll go home and work on
it," Crane said. "The next
practice, I'll have it down."
In preparation for college,
Crane vows to keep working
over the summer.
"I'm going to go in right
away and work my butt off,"
she said. "I can only give 100
percent and hope for the best."
Crane is one of 10 recruiits
UCF has signed for 2011.
Colby Hale, associate head
coach, was quoted on Central
Florida's official athletics site
as saying: "She is a winner and
a leader. As a player, she reads

the game well, is comfortable
on the ball and has good speed.
She can organize the defense
and shut down the other team's
tops player, or push wide and
fly up and down the flank in
the attack."

3 BHS football players sign letters of intent on Signing Day

Regional News/Sports Editor
Though they still have
approximately four months
remaining before they graduate
from Bradford High School,
seniors Ya'keem Griner,
Tramaine "B.B." Harris and
Donelle Williams are looking
forward to the next phase of
their lives as all three signed
letters of intent to play football
at the collegiate level.
"I was nervous at first, but
I'm excited," said Griner, who
participated in a National
Signing Day (Feb. 2)
ceremony in the school's
media center. "I'm ready to go
to Miami."
Griner, a tight end, will be
attending Florida International
University, while Harris and
Williams will be leaving the
state to attend American
International College and
Presbyterian College,
respectively. American is in
Springfield, Mass.
Presbyterian is in Clinton, S.C.
Bradford head coach Derek
Chipoletti thinks highly of all
three players, but said Griner
probably has the biggest
upside because of his "God-
given height and natural
strength." The 6-5, 203-pound
player caught 23 passes this
past season for 344 yards and
four touchdowns.
"I look for big things from
him once he ges on the
training table down at FlU,"
Chipoletti said. "He can put on
50 pounds by next year and be
a bi.-time player."
Griner, who committed to
FIU last year, said he chose the
school over others because of
the level of commitment
shown by its coaches.
"I liked how they kept
talking to me and being there,"
he said. "It wasn't like other
colleges that would give me
just one call. They kept
checking up on me to find out
how my grades were and stuff
like that."
Chipoletti said Griner is still
learning the craft of playing
the tight end position,
especially when it comes to
working within a passing
offense. Griner and Harris,
who plays wide receiver, did
not get many opportunities to
make receptions in the Wing-T
offense the Tornadoes ran
before Chipoletti was hired as
coach last year.

service projects the club
supports throughout the year.

he was looking at the
University of Florida, but he
never received an offer from
the school. He has accepted
that and is ready to play for
American International. He
thinks he'll fit in well there.
"I liked the atmosphere, the
coaching staff and the
players," Harris said
"Everybody was -nice. It
seemed like a place I could
make my home for four years."

BHS senior Ya'keem Griner signs his letter of intent
while his mother, Tameka Griner.

"I think the change in
offense opened up some
people's eyes," Chipoletti said.
"When they got the ball
thrown to them, they took
advantage of it."
Still, Harris is a polished
receiver, said Chipoletti, who
feels that the player was hurt
by college coaches' love of
"He runs great routes,"
Chipoletti said. "He comes in

and out of breaks well. The
knock on B.B. was his top-end
"These colleges get too
much into an inch here, a 101h
of a second there. He's the best
receiver in this area by far. I'm
happy AIC came through for
him. It's a great opportunity
for him."
Harris, who caught 32
passes for 566 yards and seven
touchdowns in 2010, admitted

Harris admitted making a
new home so far away from
his home in Bradford County'
is going to be tough, but he has
a peace about his decision.
"It was really hard thinking
about going to Massachussetts
and leaving my family behind
for four years, going up there
and not knowing anyone. I just
had to pray about it. God told
me to go there,"
Though Harris is not going

to a Division I school like
Griner, Chipoletti feels he can
attract the interest of the NFL
if he does all that's required of
him on the field and in the
classroom at American
"The NFL finds those guys
in Division II schools, too,"
Chipoletti said. "There have
been some great players who

Keystone's Thomas to play football at University of Charleston

Regional News/Sports Edilor
Reach for the stars?
Keystone Heights High
School senior Reggie Thomas
admitted he felt like he was
sitting on the stars.
Thomas was riding a wave
of euphoria after signing a
letter of intent to play football
at the University of Charleston
(W.Va.) at a ceremony at
KIHS on Feb. 2.
"That day, when I put my
name on that paper, I was so
happy that I felt like no one
could take me down," Thomas
The days leading up to the
signing created a whirlwind of
emotions for the running back,
who gained 1,548 yards and
scored 15 touchdowns this past
"The night before, I cried
because I was thanking God
for giving me the ability to
perform and giving me a
chance to take my talents to
the next level," Thomas said.

S A. .. V

fe ,. ^ik ., -^ -- *- --

Thomas, on National Signing Day. Photo by KHHS teacher Laurie Crittenden.

Thomas looked at several
schools, including Florida
A&M and Charleston rival
Fairmont State, but he liked
the interaction he had with
Charleston coach Kasey
Teegardin, who recruited him.
Teegardin made it a point to

call Thomas on his birthday
(Dec. 22) as well as calling
him three days later to wish
him a "merry Christmas."
"I thought that was real
nice," Thomas said. "A lot of
other coaches didn't do that."
Thomas also liked what

Charleston had to offer him in
regard to academics. He said
he learned that 95 percent of
the school's student-athletes
graduates with a GPA of at
least 3.0. Also, 90 percent of
the school's senior student-
athletes graduate period.

"Football is not promised to
me," Thomas said, alluding to
the fact an injury could prevent
him from playing. "I felt like I
could still get my education at
the University of Charleston."
Thomas said he had never
seen snow before taking a visit
to the school. He enjoyed that
and the overall scenery.
It's a ways from home, but
Thomas relishes the
opportunity to step out and
become an adult.
"Life is about changes," he
said. "I feel like it's time for
me to grow up, be a man and
make decisions."
As for working on his game,
Thomas said he needs to work
on securing the ball. Other
than that, he said he also needs
to put on weight. He played at
Keystone at 176 pounds,
which worried Keystone head
coach Chuck Dickinson when
Thomas first transferred from
Bradford High School.
However, Thomas carried

the ball approximately) 500
times in two years and never
had any major injuries. '
"He's tough and able to pla\
through some things,
Dickinson said.
Thomas said he can't even
imagine what feelings he'll
experience when he gets the
chance to step onto the field
for the first time at Charleston.
He admitted that during his
visit he got chills just standing
on the field and looking at the
stadium-a stadium that will
-hold a lot more people than
he's used to playing in front
"I really can't wait to see
what it's going to be like." he
said. "One thing I'm going to
miss is that I can hear my mom
in the stands in the little
Keystone crpovd, but with so
many thousands of people, I'm
not even going to be able to
hear her voice anymore."

Letters to the Editor

Crosby Lake
Cemetery needs
your help
Dear Editor:
Crosby Lake Cemetery Asso-
ciation is experiencing a lack of
funds to support the upkeep and
care of the cemetery. Located at
S.R. 100 west of Starke since
the 1840s, the cemetery is a
community cemetery that re-
ceives no funding with the ex-
ception of the sale of lots, mau-
soleum crypts and/or niches.
SIf you have family'or friends
buried at Crosby Lake Ceme-
tery, please consider a gift or
donation for the upkeep of the
property. Donations may be
made to Crosby Lake Cemetery
Association at PO Box 75,
Starke, FL 32091. All donations
are tax deductible.

Come support
your local library
Dear Editor:
The Bradford County Public
Library is one of the greatest
assets that the people living in
our fine community have and
the Friends of the Library orga-
nization works diligently to help
fund the many needs of the li-
brary. In 2010, the Friends
helped in the funding of the mu-
rals painted on the library walls
that celebrate the early Indian
heritage of the area, they spon-
sored the appearance of two
local authors to come and speak,
and of course manned the al-
ways anticipated yearly book
sale that the library has. In addi-
tion, the Friends are sponsoring
the new paper recycling bin that
can' be seen in the 'back of the
library parking lot. Any and all
monies from that endeavor will
also go to benefit the Bradford
County Public Lilbrary.
The monthly meeting of the
"Friends of the Library" is
scheduled for the first Tuesday
of each month from 6:30 to 7:30
p.m. in either the back meeting
rbom or the conference room in
the library at 456 W Pratt St. in
Starke. We are always' looking
for new members to no6t only
help us raise funds for the li-
brary, but to also join us in
sponsoring actities that can be
enjoyed by young and old alike.
Many of us would hate to ad-
mit how long it has been since
we have gone to the library.
Why not try it. You might be
pleasantly surprised how much
you will like it. You might also
be surprised how much you will
find within its walls that will
appeal to you. Everyone is al-
ways invited (and encouraged)
to come and participate.
Marvin and Johanne Artman

Don't be close-
Dear Editor:
I am writing this letter as a
concerned parent and grandpar-
ent of children in the Bradford
County School system. I have
no 'personal relationship with
either of the candidates for the
district I school board seat. I am
not registered in district 1. Stac)
Shuford Creighton is my school
board representative and I am
sure she and all the ether board
members are looking out for the
best interests of every child.
The person who wins the dis-
trict I seat will be the voice for
ALdL African-American children
in this county. The other board
members don't know, nor do
they see, or hear some of the
concerns and barriers as the per-
son representing district I. We
must not miss some important
points. This person will be your
voice on the board for the next
four years. They need to be
sharp and able to go into a work-
shop or meeting and review
information and budgets and be
ready to take action. They must
be able to vote on important
issues that affect our students,
parents and teachers.
Some have said these candi-
dates don't show themselves

friendly. We must look at the
bigger picture. We all have
flaws. You need to go back
and reread the comments these
candidates made at the forum in
the Jan. 27 issue of the Bradford
Telegraph. The paper can be
obtained at the Telegraph or the

tive thinking.
The last thing I want to men-
tion is how alarming and disap-
pointing to see that of some
1,927 registered voters in district
1, only 344 exercised their right
to vote! District 1, get informed
and go vote on March 1 for the
most qualified candidate.
Linda Hampton

lyzed and the chances of getting
the best q.ilified improves con-
In this school board election, I
believe the best out of the entire
bunch made the run-off and I
believe that our school system
would be remiss if Ms. Sheila
Cummings is not elected from
the first district.

Get out and vote -
for school board Biggest Loser

Dear Editor:
Well, the question has to be
asked. "Do we really give a
damn about what is happening
in our school system? Or how
our tax money is being used in
our school system?" Today, in
this county, about 35 percent of
the taxpayers don't have chil-
dren, grandchildren or great-
grandchildren attending school
in this county. This number is
reflected in our attitude about
voting in the recent school board
primary when only 18 percent of
us voted.
Is it any wonder that members
of the school board refuse to
answer our questions or com-
plaints when we go before
them? Out of the 1,038 voters in
the first district, only 344 of us
voted. Now here is something
else that I think is weird, 302 of
the voters were black. What is
wrong with this picture is that
white voters living in this dis-
trict outnumber the black voters
972 to 918, and yet only 39
whites voted. Oh, why oh why
do so many of us care so little
about.what the local govern-
ments do to us? Someone please
tell me why there is so little
concern about how our hard-
earned money is being wasted? I
know that there are more ques-
tions here than answers, but I
would hope that there will come
a point in time when more of us
will stand up to be counted.
This is not to say that we

Dear Editor:
Our fifth meeting was Mon-
day night at Mind and Body
Fitness. Debbie Lawrence gave
us the eight major muscle
groups of the body and exercises
that we could do at home when
we couldn't get to the gym.
These also got our heart rates up
to get in some cardio as well.
Hattie Loggins won the contest
for being able to maintain "the
plank" position for the longest
time period.
After averaging eight pounds
of weight loss per week, I only
lost one pound this week, for a
total of 33 pounds in five weeks.
I believe I encountered a pla-
teau, an occurrence that happens
to dieters because your body
thinks there is a famine and has
slowed down your metabolism
in order to conserve calories. I
did some research and found
some tips to breaking a plateau.
Tip #1: Always include weights
and cardio. Tip #2: Do your
cardio in the morning on an
empty stomach. Tip #3: When in
doubt, check your diet. Try to
really watch your carbs at night.
Tip #4: Increase your cardio to
5-6 days per week. Tip #5: Cut
back on the portion sizes and
increasing meal frequency If
you're still eating three large
meals per day, break them up
into smaller meals and eat five
to six times a day (every 2 -3
This week, my goal is to in-
crease my cardio and alter my
weight training to try to break
this plateau. Looking forward to
next week.

All Williams, a linebacker,
did his senior season, though,
was record 105 tackles, 68 of
which were solo and 9.5 of
which were for a loss. His
impact on the team was
obvious after he suffered an
ankle injury late in the season,
Chipoletti said. Prior to his
injury, opponents were
averaging 12 points against the
Tornadoes. Afterward? Thirty-
two points per game.
Chipoletti said if Williams
was a little bit taller or faster,
he would be a top recruit
"He'd be the number-one
linebacker if he was 2 inches
taller," Chipoletti said. "If he
was a 10th of a second faster,
he'd be the number-one safety
in the nation. Again, it's a
numbers game. I think college
coaches get too wrapped up in
it, but you know what? One
guy's loss is Presbyterian's
When asked to assess his
own skills on the field as a
linebacker, Williams said, "I
bring a force. When I hit
people, I hit them. They're

going to feel it."
Other schools that were
interested in him were
American International,
Eastern Kentucky and Elon,
but Williams said he likes
what Presbyterian has to offer.
"They have a good
educational program," he said.
"That's what I was looking for.
They have an OK football
team. We can get better.
"I just feel like I can feel at
home when I go there."
Williams said he had a good
experience at BHS, but now
it's time to "take it to the next
level." He's also hopeful that
he can get to the level beyond
college. He's always dreamed
of playing in the NFL.
Griner, though, isn't giving
any thoughts to the NFL right
"I'm taking it one day at a
time," he said.
And Feb. 2 was a day that
meant a lot to Griner. He got to
experience the thrill of signing

Pat, Nell Dickens celebrate 60th

On Saturday, Jan. 29, 2011,
Pat and Nell Dickens were
honored by a host of family
and friends at the Cedar River
Restaurant in Starke.
Pat and Nell were married in
1951, and guess what, 51
guests were present for this
wonderful celebration.
The theme of the party was
"love," with decorations of
white, pink and red roses and
balloons. They were honored
to have so many friends and
family present to celebrate this
wonderful occasion with them.
Many lovely gifts were
presented to them and
everyone shared a good time
of fellowship.
Besides family, Pat and Nell
were honored to have as their
guests: Mary and Danny
Thomas, Lynelle and Walt
Oliver, Treva and Don
Newmans, Harriette and Marc
Jackson, Joann and Gerald
Griffis, Charlene and Charles
Blalock, Gina Workman, and
Rick and Cory.
A very special thanks to the

manager, Cindy, and the
waitresses for helping to make
this celebration a success.
In 1942, Pat and Nell met as
children in Jacksonville.
Approximately nine years
later, on Jan. 25, 1951, they
were united in marriage.
Throughout the next six years,
they had four children: Patrick
III, David, Sheila and
Elizabeth. They also have six
grandchildren and nine great-
grandchildren, all of them
residing in Florida.
It is such a blessing to have
parents that have remained
together for 60 years. Through
good times and bad, they have
been committed to each other.
They both love the Lord and
.are members of Madison Street.
Baptist Church. We praise God
for His grace and for blessing
our families with such'
wonderful parents and
grandparents. Thanks, Dad and
Mom, for all the wonderful

Lady Tigers

advanced to

semifinals with
win over KHHS
Regional News/Sports Editor
Teyona Jenkins and
Anbreyal Stewart scored 15
points each as the Union
County girls' basketball team
defeated Keystone Heights 41-
19 in the quarterfinals of the
District 4-3A tournament on
Feb. 2 in Starke.
The two players combined
to score 14 points in the first
half to help the Tigers take a
20-6 lead. Keystone was held
to two field goals in the half.
Keystone had a chance to
cut into the lead immediately
at the start of the third quarter
with an opportunity at the foul
line, but both free throws were
missed. Cortney Casas and
Leanne Dye each had a steal
for the Indians, but Keystone
turned the ball over four times
itself in the quarter's early
Consecutive baskets by
Casas and Dye, along with a
free throw by Jasmine Pernell,
helped Keystone trim Union's
lead to 12, but the Tigers
outscored the Indians 7-2 to
close out the third quarter.
Jenkins had a free throw and
scored off of a layup to put the
Tigers up 30-11. Keystone's
Tara Shobris scored at the end
of the quarter to make it a 17-
point game.

working hard my whole life."
Union head coach Trudy
Andrews said hard work and
dedication describe Hersey.
"When we're not practicing,
she's working," Andrews said.
"After practices, she'll stay
with the lights on and work
with, her dad at the field."
A shoulder injury couldn't
even keep Hersey off the field.
It affected her swing, but she
refused to ride the pine,
playing through the pain and
the limitations to bat .461 last

The regular meeting of the
Bradford County Board of County
Commissioners is scheduled for
February 17, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. in
the Commission Meeting Room,
North Wing, Bradford County
Courthouse, 945 N. Temple Ave.,
Starke, FL. A copy of the agenda,

year.with an on-base average
of 560.
Defensively, Hersey was
forced to throw underhanded,
yet opposing players wouldn't
take bases on her, Andrews
"Even underhanded, she
learned to throw a straight
distance hard," Andrews said.
Hersey said her defensive
play is her strength, admitting
she must work on her
confidence issues at the plate.
She also admitted adjusting
to a new team and to college
life itself is going to be a bit of
a struggle.
"I'm very quiet, very shy,"
she said. "That's probably
going to be one thing I struggle
with- leader-type things. I
won't know anybody there, so

that's going to be a struggle,
Andrews said it is true that
Hersey is quiet, but her impact
on her teammates is

"From what I see standing
back, the girls gravitate to her
and feel like they can go to her
and ask for advice," Andrews
said. "She's quiet-she's not
very outspoken-but when
we're doing stations, she's
watching the other girls. If
they're doing something
wrong with their swings,
fieldings or whatever, she goes
and helps them. She does it in
a positive manner.
"I think she's going to be a
huge asset to Palm Beach. I
know she is."
