Times Editor

Following an audition last year. Wil-
iam Brown. an eighth grade percussion-
Ist at lakc Butler Middle Schx)l. per-
formed in the seventh and eighth grade
Florida Afstate Band. The performance
was held at the Tampa Convention ('en-
ter on Jan. 15 and was sponsored by the
Florida Music Educators Association.
To earn a spot in the Florida Allstate
Band. Brown auditioned among more
than 200 other seventh and eighth grade
percussionists from across the state of
Florida. Only 10 percussionists were

chosen from all the audition tapes sub-
As part of the audition. Brown learned
scales and c\ercises on mallets as well
as prepared exercises on both the snare
drum and tympani. He also had to sight
read music on all three instruments, play-
ing exercises he had never seen before he
arrived at the room to audition. In addi-
tion, Brown received memories that will
last a lifetime.
"I have enjoyed the opportunity to
work with William these past two and
a half years." said LBM Band Director
Dirk Schmidt.
Schmidt said Brown always comes to

class prepared and is eager to learn. "Wil-
liam is also \ cr willing to share what he
knows with his fellow classmates. He is
humble and the students around him show
him a lot of respect." said Schmidt.
Currently, Bro\wn is working on solos
for performances at the Florida Band-
master's Association Solo and Ensemble
Festival that will take place on Feb. 26.
He plans to perform on the snare drum
and tympani as well as performing a inal-
let solo using four mallets. Brown, who
said he is definitely going back again, is
also preparing for the requirements for
his audition for the ninth grade Florida
Allstate Band.

Why recycling
Is Important
The following article was writ-
ten and submitted by Alexis Wil-
liams. a second-grade student at
Lake Butler Elementary School.
This week. our second grade
class is reading about ways to
keep the Earth clean. There are
three ways our class can help
keep the Earth clean.


Pageant set

on March 5
Ihe 49th Annual Bradford-
Union Straw~bcrry Pageant will
be held on Saturda). March 5. at
the Hr.dford High School audi-
torium. The pageant % ill begin
at 7 p.m and doors w ill open at
6:30 p.m. Admission is $7 for

There are fioe little girls in the
Junior Miss Straw berrT Pageant.
10 young ladies competing for
Stra\ berry Princess. and file la-
die,;s .ing for the title of Straw,-
berrT Queen.

First, we can reuse things. We
can reuse a water bottle by wash-
ing it out and putting more water
in it. We can reuse an aluminum
can by storing erasers and pen-
cils in it.
Next, we can pick up trash.
When we see trash on the ground,
we can pick it up and put it in
the trash can. This helps us keep
our schoolyard clean. If w\e see a

plastic bottle Iying on the ground.
we can put it in a recycling bin.
Last. we can burn paper. We
can collect paper and burn it in a
large pile. Then, we can take the
ashes and out and put them back
into the soil for the Earth to use
In conclusion, these are three
wa\s we can help keep the Earth

'I he budget deficit in Wiscon-

Over the next two years, the
proiectcd budget deficit will

The people of Wisconsin

simply have to reduce spending
for their state government to

'Ihcrc are 5.6 million people

Ihc state is spending $32 billion

same is true almost eers\here
in the United States. It should be
obvious to any rational, thinking
person that when we're spending
more than 40% of our the tax-
payers' earnings, to govern our-
selves. we are headed for bank-
ruptcy at all levels of govem-
ment. The budget crisis in Wis-
consin is merely the first of
these wake-up calls. Many more
states will quickly follow%...as
will the federal govemment.
Acting decisively at the state

To achieve success,
all Americans should work to-
gether...including government
workers. The *unemployment
rate among government workers
is less than 2% (this is because
new government jobs are grow-
ing at the rate of 15% per year.
In the private sector, jobs are
declining and the unemployment
rate is almost 169 (when you
include those that have fallen off
the active claims lists).
Forget the politics...both
sides are I in the wrong
here...both political parties have
put us in this position. Do the
math, that's where reality exists.
The answer is to spend less

most of the game. but in the
second half. the largest that
lead eocr got ,was three points.
It was a one-point Bradford
lead going into the fourth
quarter, but a jumper b%
Episcopal's JJ. Kuhlman put
the Eagles up 38-37.
The Tornadoes missed their
first four field-goal attempts of
the quarter, but Covington
scored on a la)up following an
Episcopal turn would be the first of five
straight turn\ ers h the
Visitors. Follow ing w hat was
his first basket of the game.
Covington came up %with a
backcourt steal and scored
again. That was followed h)
Ya'keem Griner's steal and
subsequent dunk that made the.
score 43-38.
Covington was sent to the
foul line for a one-and-one
opportunity following another
Episcopal turnover with 3:37
remaining. Covington sank one
free throw to earn the bonus,
and sank the second attempt,
too, to put the Tornadoes up b)
It was a standout
performance overall by the
Tornadoes at the foul lihe.
They made 24-of-31 free-
throw attempts and had one
stretch in the second half
where they went 10-of-10.

Good people do their best to provide the best government services possible for the money that's
available. Our county government has done well with finances, but it faces challenges... Property
values county wide are decreasing, taxable values have not followed suit. The budget story below
shows a reflection of what has happened over the past 10 years. The property owner (taxpayer,
voter) paid additional taxes as property values increased and the money went for county services,
salaries, etc. Now the property values are decreasing and the taxable values should follow.

"Tlpt's kind of what the case
would've been if I had left.
I'm glad I did (stay), and I'm
glad to be an alumnus."
His production after four
years at Clemson led to him
being a first-round NFL dra(t
choice. He was selected ninth
overall by Buffalo and found
himself making another
transition into the next phase
of his life, just as he had
experienced going from high
school to college.
Spiller said the Buffalo
players from Florida helped
him a lot, as did running backs
Marshawn Lynch-who was
later traded to Seattle-and
Frcd Jackson, both of whom
were in their fifth year in the

"People don't really reali/e

side of the NF-, which is what
he experienced as the Hills
organization and his agent
worked on his contract. He
wound up missing I I practices
before accepting a five-year,
$25 million deal.
Spiller said it's important to
keep the business side separate
from the football side, and to
not get fooled into thinking
you're any better than anyone
else, no matter how high you
were drafted or how much
money you make.
"You've got to let your
agent handle that business
side," Spiller said. "It's got to
be done. You can't worry
about what the guys think of
you or anything like that
because all those guys have
gone through the same thing
you're going through.
"Once you get there, just
make sure you're in shape and
ready to go. Don't get caught
up into thinking you're a prima
donna and Mr. Hig Shot
because those older guys will
bring you down a little bit."

During his rookie season.
Spiller made more oE a mark
on kickoff returns, averaging
23 yards per return with a 95-
yard return for a touchdown on
Sept. 26 against New England.
Out of the backfield, he had 74
carries for 283 yards.

The Bills, who are looking
to improve upon a 4-12 record,
gained a reputation last season
of playing hard and giving
maximum effort. During one
stretch of the season, the team
had four losses that were all by
three points each.
Spiller said the team,
though, is not satisfied with
simply playing hard.
"By the end of the day, we
still lost the game," he said.

Who is Jesus?

Come to our New Sermon Series called "Who is Jesus?"


A Place to Call Home

in Starke

Sunday mornings at 10:1 5 a.m.

Who is Jesus?
The question-is not new. It has been asked since Jesus
walked the Earth. People today still wonder who Jesus is
and what He can do for their lives. Who is Jesus?
'Is He the Son of God? Is He a prophet like Islam
suggests?-Is He a good man who taught good principles
to live by? Who is Jesus?
He claimed to be Lord, the Savior of the world. He
claimed He can forgive our sin, set us free, and enable
all of us to live a life of meaning. Is this possible? Can
He forgive adultery? Can He heal an alcoholic or drug
addict? Can He really change a life for the better? Who
is Jesus?
The people of old asked these same questions. In
John chapter eight, Jesus gives six answers that changed
everything. Come hear the evidence and decide if
Jesus Christ cam change your life.
