Landfill life


being extended


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The board at the New River
Regional Landfill is reconsider-
ing its future, stepping back a bit
in an effort to save money and
increase the longevity of the dis-
posal facility.
The plan involves turning an
underused cell for yard. trash and
construction debris into the land-
fill's next major disposal cell and
postponing a costly expansion
onto 300 adjacent, but not read-
ily accessible, acres.
A portion of the landfill's
Class III disposal site was al-
ready excavated so Cell 6-con-
struction of which is currently in
progress-could be built as a 20-
acre cell.
According to the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection, Class III waste means
yard trash, construction and de-
molition debris, processed tires,
asbestos, carpet, cardboard, pa-
per, glass, plastic, furniture other
than appliances, or other materi-
als approved by the department
that are not expected to produce
leachate that poses a threat to
public health or the environ-
ment.
Because older Class III cells
are not lined, Executive Director
Darrell O'Neal called New Riv-
er's cell an environmental weak
link. Almost nothing is accepted
for disposal in the cell because,
it's labor intensive to remove
Class I materials from the waste
stream .and ensure compliance
with Class III disposal require-
ments.
O'Neal said the cell is valuable
space that is not being used to its
full potential.
O'Neal said a lot was learned


in excavating and relocating
Class III material to make way
for Cell 6, and it led to the idea
of excavating the entire area and
lining it to serve as the seventh
disposal cell.
As originally conceived, Cell
7 wasn't going to be possible
until New River began its sec-
ond phase of development on
300 acres adjacent to the existing
landfill. Before Cell 7 construc-
tion could even begin under that
plan, however, the landfill board
was looking at major infrastruc-
ture investment, including bridge
and road construction.
Moving Class III materials into
the existing cells will not only al-
low Cell 7 to be built alongside
Cell 6, it will be the same size as
well, O'Neal said. With a Class
I permit, they will even be able
to take the cell to a much higher
elevation, so it is also a better use
of the space. It should also be
a relatively easy process, since
much of the excavated material
can be moved right into Cell 6;
New River's engineers at
Jones, Edmunds and Associates
were able to develop a timeline
based on the new plan. O'Neal
said the new plan would give
the board time to put aside ad-
ditional revenue and plan for the
next phase. Phase II develop-
ment, instead of beginning in the
not too distant future, would be
pushed to 2021, with actual dis-
posal beginning in 2026. The ca-
pacity available in the next phase
will provide for disposal beyond
2030.
Engineer Joel Woolsey said
using the site for Class I dis-
posal would mean a difference
of tens of millions of dollars to

National FFA Week being observed here


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

Each year, the Future Farmers
of America (FFA) celebrates
its organization and all of its
accomplishments between Feb.
18-25. FFA week gives members
a chance to educate the public
about agriculture and the benefits
of the FFA to its members.
The week of George
Washington's birthday was
designated as National FFA
Week in 1947. FFA Week always
runs from Saturday to Saturday,
and encompasses Feb. 22,
Washington's birthday.
In celebration of this nationally
recognized week, the Lake Butler
FFA had a theme for each day of
the week to exclude Monday.
Tuesday was camouflage day,
Wednesday was cowboys and
Indians, today, Thursday, Feb.
23, is support your favorite team,


(L-R) Morgan Dukes and Kayla Freeman enjoy more than just the educational benefits
of the FFA.


and Friday, Feb. 24, celebrates
FFA pride.
According to the National FFA
organization, the "Future Farmers
of America" was founded by a
group of young farmers back


in 1928. Their mission was
to prepare future generations
for the challenges of feeding
a growing population. These
first farmers demonstrated that
agriculture is more than planting


and harvesting, it's a science, it's
a business and it's an art.
The FFA has a wide variety of
programs used to develop young
adults in different areas. The FFA
programs are designed to help


members discover their talents,
values and ambitions. Programs
provide opportunities to travel,
discover careers in agriculture
and develop leadership skills.
Through the FFA's outreach
programs, members and
advisors are encouraged to use
their knowledge and skills to
serve others. The FFA outreach
-programs help to teach elementary
school students where their food
comes from and help to teach
older students and adults about
the importance of agriculture.
These programs also help the
public understand the important
role that science and technology
plays in producing the food we
eat every day.
The Food forAmerica program
is an educational program that
focuses on agricultural literacy

Landfill audits notes same compliance notes


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The New River Solid Waste
Association received a largely
positive financial audit for 2011,
but there are ongoing issues 6f
noncompliance that auditors say
must be addressed.
The landfill's net assets in-
creased by more than $2 mil-
lion from $28.1 million to nearly
$30.4 million in Fiscal Year
2011. Most of this represents
capital and restricted net assets,
and there was a large increase
in capital assets as work took
place on a sixth disposal cell.
The landfill's unrestricted net
assets fell from $11.3 million to


$10.15 million during tlh year,
however.
According to auditor Lora
Douglas from DDF CPA Group,
operating revenue was down
from $7.6 million to $7.2 million
when comparing 2010 and 2011.
Charges for service and invest-
ment revenue were both down.
Expenses were also down from
$6.9 million to $5 million. In-
creased landfill capacity lowered
costs associated with landfill
closing and labor costs for land-
fill construction were capital-
ized and pulled out of expenses,
Douglas said.
Funds available for closing
were up from $8.9 million to
almost $9.2 million. Deposits,


not interest, were primarily re-
sponsible for the increase. This
money is restricted for closing.
There is nothing yet restricted for
long-term care. Estimated long-
term care costs are $9.5 million,
which the association plans to
raise by setting aside future sur-
pluses or charges to landfill users
(Alachua County).
The landfill has earmarked,
but not restricted, funds for
long-term care. Escrow deposits
are not actually required until
the time of closure, according
to NRSWA Executive Director
Darrell O'Neal. Douglas said if
the landfill were to close without
setting aside those funds, long-
term care costs would become


the obligation of Bradford, Baker
and Union counties. (Uncertain-
ty over how those costs wpuld
be divided is one issue auditors
have highlighted.)
The landfill has earmarked
$5.67 million of its $10.15 mil-
lion in unrestricted net assets for
long-term care, but could still use
that money for other purposes.
There are additional earmarks
of these funds for equipment re-
placement, cell construction, etc.
As Douglas pointed out, there are
plans for this money; it's not just
sitting there.
O'Neal said even though it
sounds like a lot of money, the
landfill's future obligations--like
long-term care-are not yet fully


funded. While the landfill cUr-
rently has no debt as it pays cash
for its projects and acquisitions,
the board might be required to
borrow funds-when it comes time
to build a seventh disposal cell if
those funds cannot be set aside.
There were two findings of
noncompliance in the audit, both
of which were repeated findings
from prior years.
The landfill continues to waive
disposal fees for organizations
and individuals in the absence of
statutory authority to do so. This
includes fees for fire or natural
disaster victims, churches, etc.,
whereas the state seems only to

;"Auditors have asked the land-
fil to seek an attorney general
opinion on the legality of waiv-
igg fees.
:;Additionally, the interlocal
areement between the three
rfrember counties does not spec-
ify how unfunded long-term care
costs will be'divided at closure-
evenly or based on the tonnage
disposed by each county. Based

rently be responsible for $1.57
million, Baker for $1.42 million
and Union County for $808,731.
These amounts will increase as
landfill capacity diminishes if
additional money for long-term
care is not set aside.
: The agreement also neglects to
address how dividend payments
to each county (host fees) should
be divided, and Douglas said it
needs to be amended to address
these issues.
This is the third consecutive
year each finding has appeared in

Croft making run for District

5 county commission seat


(The following is an announcement of inten-
tion to run for public office, submitted by the
candidate.)
I, Willie Croft, wish to announce my inten-
tions to run for the recently vacated position of
county commissioner in District 5, held by the
prior incumbent Ricky Jenkins.

As a lifelong resident of Palestine, I am a
sixth-generation Union County resident. I am
the son of Travis "Slim" and Joetta Johnson
Croft. My grandparents were Willie and Pearlie
Pearce Croft.
My family has been actively involved in
Union County politics, including: my uncle,
Wilford Croft, a former county commissioner
who retired as a Union County. property ap-
praiser, and Sam Johns, a prior county com-
missioner. My grandfather, Willie Croft, was a
sheriff in Union County.
I attend the Lulu Baptist Church, where I.


have attended most of my life. I went to Union ,
County High School and have my high school:
diploma. My wife of 20 years, Lara Shealy:
Croft, daughter of Carlton and Penny Shealy, is
also a lifelong resident and works home school-
ing two of our three children Datein, 13, and
Case, 8. My oldest son, Chaton, 17, attends
Union County High School where he is in the
1 Ith grade.
As a current farmer and service technician
for Coca Cola, and a former residential home
contractor, I know first hand the difficulties that
are facing our great communities. Many of my
family members are associated with the Florida
Department of Corrections and I am well aware
of the department's impact on us. If given the
chance I can bring a level of experience requir-
ing loyalty, honesty and a solid work ethic. I
welcome and look forward to the opportunity
to meet with each of you and to discuss your
concerns within Union County.

Harvey Smith was recently

Feb. 14. Smith retired with

a month to use the association's
equipment and collect the mate-
rials.
The board voted to retire
3,089 vintage carbon credits
dating back to 2003, which are
less desirable on the market. By
using those credits to offset gas
emissions occurring at the land-
fill between the completion of a
new disposal cell and before the
installation of the gas collection
system, O'Neal said New River
Regional Landfill would qualify
as carbon neutral. (The use of
fuel in operations, the use of
electricity, etc. have already been
offset.) He said he is unaware of
any other landfill that could make
that claim.

Thursday. Tiger Up will not be
held on Fridays or on days with

Each year, Bonnie Plants
distributes free cabbage plants to
third graders across the country
to foster an interest in gardening
and the environment. These O.S.
cross cabbage plants produce
oversized heads making the
process even more exciting for
kids. As part of the program,
Bonnie Plants gives a $1,000
award to one student in each state


producing the largest cabbage
plant.
In an effort to encourage more
third-grade students to participate
in the program, several members
of the community have come
together and donated money to be
used as an additional incentive.
In addition to money that Bonnie
Plants will be awarding, third-
grade students may now compete
for an additional cash prize. The
student in each class with the
largest cabbage will receive a
check for $25. The awards will
be given at the end of the school
year after the cabbages have
reached their full maturity.
The 50 Point Book Club is
designed to acknowledge LBES'
top readers in the Accelerated
Reader program. Students that
have earned 50 points and

The FFA Creed is: "I believe
in the future of agriculture, with
a faith born not of words but of
deeds-achievements won by the


present and past generations
of agriculturists; in the promise of
better days through better ways,
even as the better things we now
enjoy have come to us from the
struggles of former years.
"I believe that to live and
work on a good farm, or to be
engaged in other agricultural
pursuits, is pleasant as well as
challenging; for I know the joys
and discomforts of agricultural
life and hold an inborn fondness
for those associations which,
even in hours of discouragement,
I cannot deny.

"I believe in leadership from
ourselves and respect from others.
I believe in my own ability to
work efficiently and think clearly,
with such knowledge and skill as
I can secure and in the ability of
progressive agriculturists to serve
our own and the public interest
in producing and marketing the

"I believe that American

Our local senior chapter was
very busy during the past holiday
season with various activities and
charity drives to give back and
help families in need. All of the
senior chapter members joined
together to bring in nonperishable
food items that were put together
in baskets and handed out to
underprivileged families during


the Thanksgiving holiday.
Also, over the past few
months FFA members, as well
as members of our community,
have joined together under the
organization of senior chapter
member Morgan Dukes in the
collection of clothing items no
longer in use. These clothes
have been separated by size and
style and will go towards helping
members of our own community
that are lacking in apparel. The
students also sold pecans that
were grown at the agricultural
department and profits were
given to a charitable cause. Lake
Butler FFA echoes the portion
of our organization's mission
statement, living to serve.
The Lake Butler FFA is not an


unfamiliar name across the state.
The local chapter is growing and
continues to be a very prominent
chapter in the region.
The Lake Butler FFA is excited
about all we have done thus far.
We look forward to our Annual
Bradford-Union exhibitors fair
coming up March 19-23.
Also, Lake Butler FFA will be
having various chapter meetings
and events to close out the year
with our annual banquet. We will
also be sending district winners to
compete at the Annual State FFA
Convention this June. We look
forward to all upcoming events
and appreciate all the community
does for us.

"Come and See"
Very early in the gospel of John, we find a man by the
name of Philip telling Nathanael of Jesus. "And Nathanael said
to him, 'Can anything good come out of Nazareth?' Philip said
to him, 'Come and see" (John 1:46). This invitation led
Nathanael to believe and say, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God!
You are the King of Israel!" (John 1:49). Much like Philip, we
invite you to come and see. In fact, we all must be willing to
come to the Bible and see what it says about our beliefs.
Nathanael had a certain belief about people from Nazareth he
had to change. If we today hold some belief which is not true,
we need to be like Nathanael and change our belief when
confronted with the truth. Maybe you, like Nathanael, have
some question about a topic: If so, we would like the
opportunity to study such with you, so we together can come
and see the truth (John 8:31-32).

NEWS FROM BRADFORD COUNTY, UNION COUNTY AND THE LAKE REGION


Reddish touched to


be named Santa Fe


Woman of Distinction


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Sylvia Reddish is a talker.
She'll admit as much herself.
Therefore, her reaction upon
hearing she was chosen as a
Santa Fe College Woman of
Distinction would've surprised
those who know her, and prob-
ably surprised her a little bit as
well.
S"(I was) speechless, and that's
saying a lot for me," Reddish
said.
Reddish said receiving such
an honor was unexpected, but
to those who know her, it is fit-
ting. You see, Reddish's gift of
-talking comes out of the fact that
she's a true people person. She
cares for others and is not hesi-
tant to devote her time to help
others.
"Having known Sylvia for
many years, I can attest that she
is among the most giving persons
-you could ever know," Terry
.Vaughan, the Bradford County
-supervisor of elections, wrote in
a letter in support of her nomina-
tion as a Woman of Distinction.
"Whenever someone becomes
ill or experiences a death in the
family, Sylvia is often the first at
their door with a cale or casse-
role in hand."
In essence, Reddish couldn't
be any other way, thanks to par-
ents Dave and Hazel Paulk.
"I came from a home where
my parents were that way,"
Reddish said. "They were just'
Always. willing to go the extra
mile for someone, even though I
ditin't understand it at that age.,'
What Reddish came to learn
was that doing something for
others was a blessing for her par-
ents. In time, Reddish benefitted
in the same way.
"Sylvia has carried on the
family tradition of community
mindedness," Ray Norman, the
Bradford County clerk of the
courts, wrote in his letter of sup-
port of Reddish to Santa Fe Col-
lege.
In his letter, Norman also
wrote 'how Reddish is quick to
lend her musical talents where
needed.
"I have personally witnessed
Sylvia give her time wholeheart-
edly to others as she is called
upon almost on a weekly ba-
sis-if not more-to share her
God-given vocal talent by sign-
ing at weddings and funerals for
families within our community,"
Norman wrote.
Reddish said she has been
singing since the age of 5 and is
quick to add, "I don't sing with
a Southern drawl." As a child
and young adult, she sang on
a Gainesville country-western
-radio show and-as part of the
USO-on Navy ships docked in
Jacksonville. She had her own


Sylvia Reddish


weekly radio show in Starke.
"My theme song was 'Dear
Hearts and Gentle People,'"
Reddish said. "That was what I
sang when I opened (the show)
and closed it."
She also used to sing as part of
floor shows sponsored by Sealt-
est Milk out of Jacksonville at
conventions and other gather-
ings throughout the country.
In reality, though, Reddish
said she was no different from
Norman, who often joined her
in sharing his musical talents
before the demands of the public
office he holds.
"Ray has always given of his
time," Reddish said. "I was the .
same way. I gave of my time
freely and loved to do it."
As.best friend Sylvia Tatum-
a 2003 Woman of Distinction-
put it in her letter of nomination,
"Sylvia's love and care of the
people of the community is her
driving force."
Reddish is a member of the
Bradford County Community
Development/SHIP advisory
board and was appointed to the
county's redistricting commit-
tee. She is very active in Altrusa
of Starke, of which she is a char-
ter member.
As active as she is in Altrusa,
helping to raise funds to endow
Santa Fe College scholarships
annually, for example, Reddish
is more involved in something
near and dear to her heart-the
American Cancer Society and
the annual Relay for Life fund-
raiser.
"I domore with that than any-
thing else," Reddish said.
Her support of the American
Cancer Society, Relay for Life
and of those with cancer is per-
sonal. Reddish is a breast cancer'
survivor, as is Tatum. The two
are both active in the American
Cancer Society's Reach for Re-
covery program in which vol-
unteers reach out to those with
breast cancer, whether in person
. or via phone. Reach for Recov-
-ery volunteers are breast cancer


survivors who give patients and
families someone to talk to about
their feelings, fears and concerns
as well someone to ask questions
of and receive knowledgeable an-
swers from.
Reddish knows how important
it is to have someone to lean on
following a diagnosis of breast
cancer.
"They think it's the end of
the world," Reddish said. "Of
course, I did, too, for the first
little bit."
Reddish recalled how she
was, of course, there for her
friend Tatum when she was di-
agnosed with cancer.
"She had cancer first," Red-
dish said. "I went through it
with her. We'd do things to-
gether. When she'd-be down,
we'd go eat, go shopping or do
something.
"Then,around two years later,
here I am (with cancer). Sylvia.
was my support person also be-
sides my wonderful, wonderful
family."
Becoming involved with
Reach to Recovery seemed to
be a natural progression for
Reddish, who would be asked
by people in the community to
visit those who had just been di-
agnosed with cancer.
"People knew what I had
been through," Reddish said.
'They would call me or stop me
on the street and say, 'I have a
sister with cancer,' or, 'I have
a daughter with cancer. Would
you go talk to them?'
"That's really how it started
out, and 99 percent of the time, I
knew who the person was who I
was going to see."
Her efforts to reach out to oth-
ers has impressed Katie Griffin,
a regional trainer for the Ameri-
can Cancer Society.
"In addition to providing sup-
port and information, she.always
goes the extra mile in helping pa-
tients by nurturing them, learn-
ing of their needs and meeting
those needs by taking them for
doctor visits, chemo and radia-
tion treatments,or referring them
for services she cannot provide,"
Griffin wrote in her Woman of
Distinction support letter.
Besides helping those with
cancer and being active in Al-
trusa, Reddish is a supporter of
Santa Fe College and its pres-
ence locally. She and her family
were contributors to the estab-
lishment of the Andrews Center.
in Starke, which she said has
made it so much easier for stu-
dents to start their college years
at home and not have to spend as
much time driving to Santa Fe's
main campus in Gainesville.

Bradford High School wrestlers earningmedals at the state finals are (I-r) Phillip
James, Jarraid Forsyth and Devin Paulk..


3 from BHS earn medals


at state wrestling finals


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford High School ju-
nior Phillip James placed third,
while senior Devin Paulk and
sophomore Jarraid Forsyth took
fourth and sixth, respectively, at
the Florida High School Athletic
Association Wrestling Finals on
Feb. 17-18 in Lakeland.
Though he didn't earn a med-
al, junior Cody Hankerson was
one win away from earning one.
"I felt like the guys we took
down there wrestled really
well," Bradford coach Dana Ar-
thur said. "In fact, they wrestled
the best they have all year."
James was making his second
straight appearance at state. He
was one win away from earning
a medal last year and put himself
in serious contention to win it all
this year.


"I'm glad that I've got a good
team and good coaches who
helped me make it that far,"
James said.
James, who competed in the
1l95-pound class, defeated Jer-
emy Ramirez of Fbrt Lauderdale
Calvary Christian 8-1 to start the
tournamenrt,He then-13inned Ben
Willard of Fort Myers Evangeli-
cal Christian in 2:22-before be-
ing pinned by Luke Hanson of
North. Marion in 1:49.
Arthursaidlames caught a bad
break in a match he shouldn't
have lost, but James rebounded
to win two straight, including a
4:26 pin of Samuel Adams of
Hollywood Chaminade to take
third.
"He bounced back after that
loss," Arthur said. "He was like
a man on a mission."
Paulk, like Forsyth and Han-
kerson, was making his first ap-


pearance at state, wrestling in
the 160 class. He pinned Nick
Davis of Fort Lauderdale Car-
dinal Gibbons in 3:05 to start
things off before losing 11-7
to Spencer Baxter of New Port
Richey Gulf.
Arthur said Paulk is at his
6est when fie's standing up, but
Baxter was the one wrestler who"
could counter that. Baxter is ap-
proximately 6 feet tall and could
use his long arms to keep Paulk
at bay, Arthur said.
"He kept Devin away and kept
Devin from doing what Devin
does best," Arthur said.
Paulk bounced back, defeat-
ing Logan Fletcher of Suwannee
11-3 and pinning Julius Seek-
ins of Miami Florida Christian
in 4:34. However, Paulk faced
Baxter again, losing 5-1,

Yoho announces candidacy for Congressional District 6


(The following is a statement
.of intention to run for public
office, submitted by the candi-
date.)
TedYoho,asmall businessman
and veterinarian who has lived
and worked in the district for
almost three decades,announced
on Feb. 17 that he is running as
a Republican for the U.S. House
of Representatives in the new
Congressional District 3, taking
on' Cliff Stearns, who has been
in Congress for nearly a quarter
of a century.
The Florida Division of
Elections website confirmed
that Yoho is the first candidate
residing in this district to qualify
by petition for the Aug. 14


STATE
Continued from 1B


Republican primary.
Yoho worked in the district
for 28 years as a veterinarian,
retiring Jan. 1 of this year in
order to dedicate his full time
and energy to his campaign.
"Working every day with
farmers, ranchers and local
small businesses, I realized that
I was not alone in being worried
about what is happening to north
central Florida and our nation,"
Yoho said. "The people we send
to Congress are not listening
to us. Our government has
become too large and so fiscally
irresponsible that it has had a
dramatically negative impact
on our way of life. We now
have an America that seems


rest of the team made this sea-
son, Arthur said Bradford could


to be teetering on the edge of
collapse, with our economy flat-
lined and our national security
compromised."
Yoho said he would run against
SStearns, who has failed to chair a
major congressional committee
despite being in Congress nearly
25 years.
Unlike other candidates who
entered the race -only after
believing they would not be
challenging Stearns, Yoho filed
. months ago with the intention of
taking on the longtime Beltway
resident.
"As a small business owner
and large-animal veterinarian, I
have a different perspective than
the career politicians," Yoho

nals.


said. "Unlike the entrenched
politician, I have been in the
trenches on a daily basis for the
last 28 years. Like too many
Americans, I have been on the
receiving end of the garbage
legislation coming out of
Washington. I've been both an
employer and an employee. I
know how it feels to sign both
sides of the" paycheck. That's
something that my opponents
have forgotten in their years in
Washington while standing on
the electoral escalator, waiting
to move up to the next office. We
need more business sense and
common sense in Washington,
and that's what I can bring."
The new 3rd Congressional


"I'm real excited about next
year," Arthur said.


District includes Alachua, Levy,
Dixie, Gilchrist, Columbia, Clay,
Union, Bradford, Suwannee,
Hamilton, Lafayette, half of
Madison and a part of Marion
County.
Yoho graduated from the
University of Florida, where he


received his bachelor's degree in
agriculture and his doctorIte of
veterinary medicine.
He and Carolyn, his wife of
37 years, live in Gainesville
and have three children, one of
whom is currently on active duty
in the military.


; He felt he should've done bet-
ter, but Paulk said he couldn't
complain about fourth place in
his first time at state.
"It's a very good feeling,"
Paulk said.
Forsyth wrestled in the 138
class, defeating Andrew Scher-
er of Hudson Fivay 12-10 be-
fore losing 20-5 to Shaquon
Young of Fort Myers Dunbar.
He pinned Damien McKinzie
of Tampa Robinson in 26 sec-
onds and defeated Travis Hinsey
of Wakulla 13-9 before being
pinned in 4:17 by Larry Cannon
of Bradenton Southeast. Paulk
was then defeated 9-6 by Luke
Frame of Clay.
Paulk was disappointed in los-
ing to Frame, who he had beaten
twice previously. Still, he was
pleased with his performance.
S"I had higher expectations,"
Forsyth said, "but I'm the first
sopliomore state placer (at BHS),
so I'm proud of myself."
Arthur said Forsyth's perfor-
niance this entire season and at
state as a sophomore has been
amazing. What was even more
amazing, Arthur said, was what
Forsyth had to deal with while at
State.
:"He placed sixth in the state
running a fever and with a pretty
bad cold," Arthur said.
: In the 152 class, Hfankersorid
opened with a 10-5 win over Jef-
frey Hardy of Lake Wales before
losing 9-1 to Nate Woodard of
Pembroke Pines Somerset. Han-
kerson then defeated Dylan Ay-
ala of Crystal River 4-3 before
being pinned in 3:56 by Nick
Pppolillo of Wesley Chapel.
Bradford finished 12" in the

hind Bolles-with 48 points.

Circuit judge decision upheld


BY JIM MCGAULEY
'Baker County Press Publisher
Last summer the family of
a 4-year-old child given to her
marital father by a circuit judge
took to the street in front of the
courthouse, and to the airwaves
and blogosphere, to register its
displeasure.
SThey protested that Circuit
.udge Phyllis Rosier erred griev-
Ously in July.when she awarded
custody of Miranda Wilkerson,
formerly of Glen St. Mary, to
Donald Ray Coleman of St.
~eorge, Ga.
SMr. Coleman is not the child's
biological father. He was mar-
tied to Miranda's late mother
Trista when the girl was born in
July, 2007. A month later, Mrs.
Coleman died in a vehicle acci-
dent in north BakerCounty.
SThe couple had three other
daughters all of whom remained
I the custody of their father.
The rub, according to the
child's grandmother Rita Man-
ning of Macclenny, was that Mr.
Coleman is a registered sex of-
fender. Plus, Ms. Manning said,
she had been caring for the child
since birth.
S In a series of twists that turned
the custody dispute into a "made
for the media" story, the child's
Biological father James Larkey
Wilkerson of Macclenny, filed
for custody of Miranda after
udge Rosier awarded it to Mr.
GColeman.
' Add to that the fact that Mr.
6oleman's sex offender status
is rooted in his relationship with
the late mother when she was
But 14 years of age. Her mother,
Ms. Manning, approved of the
inion.
SSo, what's the status of the
case now?
In general, the tide has turned
i favor of the judge, who was
iialigned by the grandmother,
her family and in the media.
-A three-judge panel of the
Virst District Court of Appeals
in Tallahassee last month upheld
Judge Rosier's awarding of cus-

Yard sale to
benefit Relay
for Life
SA yard sale hosted by the
fundraising teams of the Relay
for Life of Bradford County will
take place this Saturday, Feb.
25, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at
the town square on Call Street in
downtown Starke.
SA variety of items, including


Judge Phyllis Rosier
tody to Mr. Coleman. It affirmed
without comment that she fol-
lowed state statute in giving the
child to the man married to her
mother when she was born.
Late last year, Judge Rosier
rejected the paternity-based ap-
peal by Mr. Wilkerson, whose
relationship with the late mother
was the cause of Mr. Coleman
filing for divorce.
The judge's .reasoning, indi-
rectly affirmed by the separate
appeals court ruling, was that
Mr. Wilkerson's claim as the
biological father does: not trump
what Florida law .requires judges
to do-award custody to the par-
ent married to the mother at the
time of the baby's birth.
Ms. Manning, who was placed
on probation in 2007 foi' child
neglect due to acquiescence on
her teen daughter's affair with
Mr. Coleman, declined to com-
ment on the appeals court ruling
this week on advice of her attor-
ney.
"We've asked the court for its
reasoning in rejecting that ap-
peal, so we won't have any com-
ment until we hear from them,"
said Joseph Manniko, the Mac-
clenny .attorney-. representing
Ms. Manning.
The court's decision on Janu-
ary 19 was delivered per curiam,
which means it did not go into
detail.
The grandmother initially filed


food, will be for sale to help
teams raise funds in support of
the American Cancer Society's
Relay for Life fundraising walk.
The Bradford County Relay is
scheduled for April 28-29.

Crosshorn Ministries, an

males of all ages, welcomes
Lamar Williams, professional


for adoption of the girl, trigger-
ing the custody petition by Mr.
Coleman and the judge's ruling
that brought the case to the pub-
lic's attention. The grandmother
sought an airing of the case in
the media when she contacted a
Jacksonville television station in
July.
From there, the case led off
in other directions, including
a court petition by First Coast
News to be allowed into an Aug.
10 court hearing it believed was
on a criminal contempt matter
rather than an adoption. Hear-
ings on adoption are closed to
the public.
Mr. Coleman requested the
hearing on a motion to hold Ms.
Manning in contempt for speak-
ing to the media about the case.
She was never cited for contempt
but complied with the ban after
the two-hour closed session.
The television station ap-
pealed Judge Rosier's ruling de-
.nying entry to the hearing. The
appeals court dismissed it.
In another fallout from the
Wilkerson case, Mr. Manniko
and his law partner/wife Barbara
Baris sought to remQve Judge
Rosier from 18 other cases pend-
Sing before her, arguing their re-
lationship with her soured over,
among other things, the judge's
accusation that they orchestrated
the media publicity blitZ: The at-
torneys denied doingso.
The appeals court refused to
remove the judge from their cas-
es, responding that the attorneys
failed to present evidence of bias
that rises to the level that would
justify taking her off other, pend-
ing cases.
Judge Rosier, after the flare-up
of negative publicity, removed
herself from any further deliber-
ations involving Miranda Wilk-
erson or other related parties.
Circuit Judge Toby S. Monaco
of Gainesville was appointed in
her place.

Man swiped jail.
game, candles Police: fast-
from Walmart, food couple
. .. .o Al -


carried
gun during
burglary
A judge sentenced Troy M.
Kearse, 27, to 18 months proba-
tion after he pleaded no contest
to two August 2010 theft-related
charges.
The Bradford County resident
pleaded to felony petit theft and
to possession of a firearm by a
felon. The judge adjudicated
him guilty of the crimes and also
ordered him to pay $20 in court
costs. Prosecutors dropped addi-
tional charges of petit theft and
burglary.
According to a police report,
on Aug. 5, a Walmart associ-
ate saw Kearse conceal a video
game in his back pocket and
place two candles and a lighter
in the bottom compartment of
his shopping cart The associ-
ate told police Kearse then paid
for an air conditioning window
unit and a can of paint but failed
to pay for the video game, can-
dles and lighter. The unpaid
merchandise carried a retail val-
ue of $33.53.
In a separate incident, a
Center Street couple accused
the 27-year-old of entering
their residence uninvited on
Aug. 2 and demanding, then
taking a bottle of Endocet
pills. The couple claimed that
while Kearse demanded the pain
reliever, they saw a black and
silver handgun holstered within
the man's pahts. One of the vic-
tims later identified Kearse in a
photo lineup.
Petit theft is ordinarily a mis-
demeanor. Since Kearse had
two prior such convictions in
2003, Florida law allowed pros-
ecutors to classify the Walmart
occurrence as a felony.

Inmate tried
to heat water,
started fire
A former Florida State Pris-
on inmate was sentenced to 18
months after he started a fire in
his cell.
Tondrick Terrell Hough, 48,
pleaded no contest to arson of
an occupied structure. A judge
adjudicated him guilty of the
charge.
According to court papers, the
inniate tried to heat water using
a cigarette lighter and activated
a smoke detector in the process.
At the time of the incident,
Feb. 25, 2010, Hough was'
serving a 50-year sentence for
an' armed robbery in Putnam
County. He is now at RMC and
is scheduled to be released April
1,2036.



Starke
police raid
Pine Forest
apartments,
arrest 2
A half-dozen Starke police
officers broke through the front
door of a Pine Forest apartment
and rushed into the residence
just before 4 a.m. Friday. Mo-
ments later they arrested John
Andrew Slocum, 29,, charging
him with three counts of sell-
ing marijuana. Police obtained
a search warrant prior to raid-
ing the Westside rental and sur-
prised the man while he was on
his living room couch.
After detaining the 290year-
old, officers found 18 grams of
marijuana in one bag within the
man's apartment, and an addi-
tional 10 grams packaged in 14
smaller bags, according to a po-
lice report.
After securing the first apart-
ment, several officers sprinted
across the parking lot to exe-
cute a second arrest warrant on
43-year-old Christina M. Bust-
erna. According to Captain Bar-
- ry Warren, Busterna obtained
medications through prescrip-
tions, then sold the drugs to oth-


er individuals. Officers found a
15-year-old minor in Busterna's
home, and took the teenager to
another Pine Forest resident
before transporting Busterna to


took money
from Taco
Bell safe
After an Arby's employee
slipped into Starke's Taco Bell
and helped himself to $367
from the restaurant's safe, his
girlfriend, who was employed
by the Mexican-themed eatery,
picked up the burglar and drove
him away, according to a Starke
police report.
Justin Lee Forsyth, 22, and
Brittany Nicole Warren, 18, both
of Starke were arrested in Febru-
ary for burglary and larceny.
According to police, on the
morning of Sept. 27, the man-
ager opening Taco Bell found
its back door open and the safe
empty.
The following day, investiga-
tor Mark Lowery interviewed
the restaurant's employees, in-
cluding Warren. The detective
wrote in a report that during his
talk with Warren,-the 18-year-
old questioned the investiga-
tor about the type of evidence
he had already collected and
whether he had obtained finger-
prints at the crime scene.
In December Lowery got a
tip that Forsyth, who worked at
Arby's, was involved with the
heist, and noted that Warren was
the man's girlfriend.
The investigator wrote that on
fDec. 7 he interviewed Warren at
.the police department.
"I advised Brittany that I
knew about Justin going into
Taco Bell and I asked her what
her part was."
Lowery wrote that the 18-year-
old started to weep.
"I asked Brittany why she was
crying and she said, 'I knew we
would get caught eventually."'
According to the detective,
Warren then' confessed that on
the morning of the break-in
she picked up her boyfriend at
Arby's after midnight and
dropped him:oFf in front ofTaco
Bell. While she waited at the
Swamp, Car Wash, Forsyth en-
tered the building'through the
back door, walked to the safe,
which was unlocked, and took
the cash. After getting a call
from Forsyth, Warren met the
S22-year-old at a railroad cross-
ing, and picked him up.
Police later interviewed For-
syth who, according to Low-
ery, corroborated Warren's ver-
sion of the burglary. Lowery
wrote that the 22-year-old told
him the pair had been planning
the break-in for some time, but
that his girlfriend kept delay-
ing the execution of the plan be-
cause she didn't want managers
that she liked to get into trouble.

REDDISH
Continued from 1B

if it wasn't for the ability that we
have here (with Santa Fe)," Red-
dish said.
f Reddish's children graduated
.from Santa Fe, and she currently
-has a grandson attending the
school.
"I can't say enough good
about Santa Fe and how well
they work in this community,"
Reddish said.
"This community" was not
Reddish's original home, but
it's the one she claims. She and
her family, who lived in Jack-
sonville, hadka cabin on Crosby
Lake. Reddish and her family
eventually moved to Bradford,
County when she was 11.
"I'm a real Bradford Countian
at heart," Reddish said. "There's
just no better place than this."
Reddish's mother ran for a
seat on the Bradford County
commission, but did not win,
which was probably more a sign
of the times in regard to women
holding such positions than any-
thing else. As it was, Reddish
said her mother lost by a small
number of votes..
Her father ran for a seat on the
commission four years later and
won. During his term, though,
he suffered a heart attack aiid
passed away. Florida's governor
appointed Reddish's mother to
serve the remainder of the term.
Hazel Paulk then ran for another
term and was successful this
time. She was the fist female
commissioner.
Reddish said only her job with
Liberty Insurance prevented her,
too, from seeking a commission
seat. Her employer felt it would
interfere with her job.
"I would have run, because
people tried to get me to," Red-
dish said.
She worked for Liberty Insur-
ance for 22 years. She once told
the Bradford County Telegraph
in an interview that her husband,
Vernon, said she had found the
perfect career.
"He said it was a job that re-


No Runaround
GBIS Disability, Inc


quired me to talk and ride (in a
vehicle) a lot-the two things I
like best," Reddish said.
The job was a joy. Reddish
said she truly loved her interac-
tion with people on a day-to-day
basis. It prompted her in an ear-
lier Bradford County Telegraph
interview to say, "The good peo-
ple of Bradford County made
my job wonderful."
According to Ray Norman,
Reddish is one of those "good
people."
"We here in Bradford County
are blessed to have Mrs. Sylvia
Reddish as part of our com-
munity," Norman wrote in his
Woman of Distinction support
letter. "Bradford County is a
better place because of upstand-
ing, community-minded citizens
such as her."
Reddish and her husband have
been married 51 years. She said
Vernon has been very support-
ive and understanding of all tlhe
activities she takes part in.
"It doesn't matter what time it
takes for me to do other things,"
Reddish said. "He's proud that
healthwise I'm able to do it."
Reddish and her husband have
two children-Barry and his
wife, Chanda, and Lisa and her
husband, Billy Gault-and five
grandchildren.
Also, Reddish has a sister-
Faye Andrews-who lives in
Starke, while Vernon has five
brothers-plus one who is de-
ceased-who all live in Brad-
ford County.
Between family and friends,
one would expect Reddish
would have quite a support
group at the Santa Fe College
Women of Distinction Program,
which will be held Thursday,
March 15, from 4:30 p.m. until 7
p.m. in the Fine Arts Hall at the
college's Northwest Campus in
Gainesville. She will be honored i
along with seven other wom-
en-Bennye Alligood, DeeJay i
Hellrung, Alena King Lawson,
Linda McGurn, Mary Wise and
Jenna Stafford, who is a college-
"aged Woman of Promise.

a semifinal game on Feb. 21 in
Lake Butler.
It was a game of runs as the
Tigers (14-13) had an answer
every time The Villages got
close. The Buffalo (5-22) ral-
lied from a 14-point deficit and
pulled to within one point early
in the third quarter, but Union
was able to score 12 straight
points to maintain a double-digit
lead for most of the remainder of
the game.
The Buffalo cut Union's lead
to eight early in the fourth, only
to watch Alexander score six
points during a 9-0 run.
Alexander helped pick up the
slack as Shaimea Maeweather-
one of the team's leading scor-
ers-spent the majority of his
time on the bench.
"Carl's definitely one of our
leaders who will step up and car-
ry our team," Union head coach
Rufus Jefferson said.
The Tigers will now host
Chiefland-a 54-42 winner over
Wildwood on Saturday, Feb. 25,
at 7 p.m. to determine who gets.
to advance to the Final Four in
Lakeland. The state semifinals
will be played Tuesday, Feb. 28,
with the championship game to
be played on Wednesday, Feb.

Bradford Special Olympians capture state medals


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford County earned two
individual first-place medals,
one team first-place medal and


two team second-place medals
at the Special Olympics Florida
North State Basketball Champi-
onship, which was held Feb. 10-
11 in Gainesville.


Of course, if you have seen
any of the participants after
their participation at the event,
you know how well they did.
They've been wearing their


medals to school and are proud
to show them off.
"A lot of them had never re-
ceived a medal before, so it was
nice," said Deanna Coleman, a


member of Bradford County's
Special Olympics management
team.
"They had a great time," she
added.


Bradford's
3-on-3 team
consists of (I-r)

Tornadoes eliminated in quarterfinals by Mount Dora


SBY CLIFF SMELLEY
* Regional News/Sports Editor
!Mount Dora outscored the
.Bradford boys' basketball team
23-13 in the second quarter to
build a 14-point lead en route to
handing the Tornadoes a 67-46
19ss and eliminating them from
the postseason in a Class 4A re-
gional quarterfinal game on Feb.,
16 in Mount Dora.
-Bradford head coach Traavis
Chandler said Mount Dora was
making all of the hustle plays he
would've liked to have seen his
team make.
"We just kind of left our heart,
hustle and all our effort on the
bus," Chandler said. "We just
didn't bring it. (Mount Dora)
just played a little more hungri-
er. They played with more of a
sense of urgency than we did.
As a reward, Mount Dora
(17-11) advanced to this past
Tuesday's semifinals to take on
a Williston team that defeated
Bradford in double overtime to
win District 5. Williston (19-7)
'advanced by defeating Trinity
Catholic (17-11).
Chandler admitted his players
may have been affected by their
desire to get another shot at Wil-
liston after the District 5 tourna-
ment.


Justin McBride (right), pictured against Santa Fe in
the District 5-4A tournament, was the only player in
double figures In Bradford's loss to Mount Dora.


"I think a little bit of it was


they still had that Williston game


on their minds," Chandler said.
"They wanted revenge. I d6n't
want to say they overlooked
(Mount Dora), but they did want
to beat Williston."
Mount Dora had four players
score in double figures, exhibit-
ing the kind of balance Chandler
wanted to see from his team.
The Tornadoes (15-14) got 21
points and 10 rebounds from
Justin McBride, but no other
player reached double figures in
points.
"We needed contributions
from five different players on the
floor,";Chandler said. "We just
didn't get that (on Feb. 16)."
Chandler said he hopes the
loss motivates the team next sea-
son. Bradford loses only three
players to graduation and will
return its entire starting lineup.
In the locker room after the
Mount Dora loss, Chandler said
he saw a look in his players' eyes
that indicated they were ready to
do whatever it took to get bet-
ter next year. It's the same kind
of look the third-year coach saw
with his first team, which lost in


the first round of the playoffs,
but rebounded the next season
to play-for a regional champion-
ship.
"I think it's going to be a real
special group next year," Chan-
dler said.

Keystone
drops season
opener 10-2.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
It was a struggle offensively
and defensively in the Keystone
Heights baseball team's season-
opening 10-2 loss to visiting Bu-
chholz on Feb. 14.
The Indians (0-1 prior to'Feb.
21) had just four hits as biaters
struck out 10 times.
Buchholz had 11 hits off of
pitchers Adam Bryan.(0-1), Josh
Griffis and Robbie Davis,but five
of its runs were scored on errors,
while two more errors eventually
led to another pair of runs.
Evan Harvey, who went 2-for-
4, scored the Indians' first run in
the sixth after leading off the in-
ning with a single. He scored on
a passed ball, while Daniel Wil-
liams scored later in the inning
off of an error.

On Tuesday, Feb. 28, the Indi-

Coleman said there was some
doubt as to whether one of the:
team members would be able:
to participate, but he showed up
with a parent ready to play. The
player in question said he had to
show. up because he didn't want
his absence to prevent his team
from being able to compete.
That kind of thinking and con-
cern for each other has been ex-
hibited by all the Bradford Coun-
ty Special Olympians, Coleman
said. It's one of the reasons, she
said, why having a presence in
the Special Olympics again is so
important.

"It builds these skills of em-
pathy and caring for each other,"
Coleman said.

Jackson.
Lane Miliii Helped the Buf-
falo trim the Tigers' lead from

Dukes sparked a 9-0 run in
the fourth quarter as the Tigers
-took a 61-44 lead. Dukes scored,
drew a foul and made the ensu-
ing free throw before Carl Alex-
ander had consecutive rebound
tip-ins. Dukes then blocked a
3-pointer, which resulted in Al-
