Shands Starke
doctor wins $2,500
Altrusa prize
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
There were winners and losers,
and then there was a really big
winner, which turned out to be
Dr. Ayotunde Faweya of Shands
Starke Regional Medical Center.
Faweya was the winner of the
$2,500 grand prize at the annual
Altrusa International of Starke
Gala, which was held Oct. 17
at the Florida National Guard
armory in Starke. Starke Altrusa
President Cheryl Canova handed
the cash prize over to Jonathan
Taffe, another Shands Starke
doctor, who stood in for Faweya.
(Faweya didn’t attend the gala.)
Altrusa member Judy Jull was
the next-to-the-last name drawn,
meaning she just missed out on
the cash prize. She did, however,

3rd annual Worshipfest
to take place Nov. 1-2
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Grace Community Fellowship
Church of Starke will welcome
more than 150 worship leaders,
musicians and artists as part of
its third annual Worshipfest,
which will begin at 6 p.m. on
Friday, Nov. 1.
The 12-hour event will be
hosted at the church grounds at
2446 N.E. S.R. 16 (1 mile east
of U.S. 301). Admission is free,
and all are welcome to attend.
In fact, Grace Community
Fellowship Pastor Greg Pusateri
said that’s the point—to bring
people of different ages and
denominations together for the
sole purpose of worshipping
God.
Worshipfest exists “to be a
blessing to our city and our
region, and then just to provide
an opportunity where the greater
body can come together without
any agenda but to worship God
together,” Pusateri said.
The event, which originally
began in Baker County, has
expanded from six hours to 12
hours. It is more than a local
event, as people from cities such
as St. Augustine and Orlando—
as well as from Georgia—have
attended in the past.
Pusateri said it has been
inspiring to see Worshipfest
grow and bring so many different
people together.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Bradford Middle School
football player Tally Chandler
made a late interception to
preserve a 16-14 victory over
Williston during the regular
season.
Chandler had two interceptions
when the two teams met again
in the Suwannee Middle
School Athletic Conference
championship game on Oct. 22
in Starke, but late-game heroics
weren’t necessary this time
around as Bradford easily won
40-16 to claim the program’s
first-ever SMAC title.
“To bring home that first
championship—what a feeling,”
said second-year head coach
William Brewington, who guided
the Hurricanes to a runner-up
finish in the conference last
season.
The Hurricanes got a four-
touchdown performance from
running back Charles Strong.
His 47-yard touchdown run
in the fourth quarter capped a
15-carry, 119-yard effort.
Bradford (7-1) scored the
game’s first 18 points and led
26-8 at the half.
A couple of fumbles put the
Hurricanes into long-yardage
situations on their first offensive
series. However, Strong took a
short pass from Dakota Mathews
on fourth-and-20 and turned it
into a 39-yard touchdown to put
Bradford up 6-0.
The Hurricanes got the ball
right back, thanks to Chandler,
who had an interception on
Williston’s first play from
scrimmage.
Bradford

together a seven-play, 69-yard
scoring drive. Mathews, who had

for more information. Around May 30, 1952, Ocala’s Cragg Construction was
ready to tear up Temple Avenue
(Florida 200) and lay the foundations of U.S. 301. In Starke, a
detour had been set up, and parking had been banned on 10th and
Walnut streets.
By early June, the draglines
were at work, and new sewer
and water pipes were being laid.
It had been almost three years
since the federal highway project was first announced.
In mid-June, the Telegraph
ran photos of deconstructed
Temple Avenue, with deep ditches down one side of what had
been Starke’s main thoroughfare. The newspaper also did a
survey of local businesses, many
of which reported that despite
the demolished street, customers
were willing to walk a few extra
blocks to get to their shops and
offices.
Downtown gas stations were
suffering most. One owner took
a two-month vacation while
the road was to be built. In the
Telegraph’s informal survey,
Winkler Electric Company,
Howard’s Drugs and the Brown
Derby Restaurant said their
businesses were about where
they always were. Kitty’s Home
Cooked Meals and the Whatnot
Shop were closed on the Monday afternoon the survey was
taken. A plumbing shop said it
got most of its business over the
telephone; tearing up the road
made no difference. New Method Cleaners had front- and backdoor approaches to its business;
the back door saw about as many
customers as ever. Several shop
owners reported a 25- to 50-percent drop in business.
After the survey, the Telegraph’s U.S. 301 news began to
slow. The first two editions in
August had nothing at all about
the new road on its front pages.
One item in mid-August noted
that buildings on Temple Avenue
were now required to have an
18-inch setback from the 301
right-of-way. Four new motor
courts were going up.
In mid-July 1952, Keystone
Heights building contractor Kyle
McMurtry announced that he

item in late August went into further detail. The new court would

er six-unit motor court was to be
built by Anthony Cemenaro at a
cost of $14,000.
Although work on U.S. 301
continued, there were no further
front-page stories about the new
road in the Aug. 29 edition, none
at all in September and none in
the first of October.
In the Oct. 10 Telegraph, a
front-page headline read, “I don’t
believe it.” J.P. Croft of Cragg’s
Construction announced that the
base rock on the new road was
in place and a tar prime would
be added the following week.
Weather permitting, the new
thoroughfare would open within
the next six weeks.
In October, the Starke 301
Motor Court opened with a full
house. Owner Bagley said he
hoped business stayed as good as
opening weekend.
Other October and November
Telegraphs had no further information. In the Nov. 28 edition,
the city was asking the State
Road Department to fix Walnut
Street, which was part of S.R.
200.
Apparently, the road work was
finished, but there was no formal announcement in the paper.
There were no big parades or celebratory parties or speeches by
dignitaries, such as had been held
in Cedar Key when Road 13 had
come to its town. Nor was there
a special edition of the Telegraph
with a front-page spread and
pages of special ads, as there had
been when C.R. 16 was paved all
the way to Raiford State Prison.
So far as anyone can tell by
reading the Telegraph now, the
project simply ended, the construction company went back to
Ocala and life resumed as it always had in Bradford County.
The Telegraph didn’t seem to
expect much change. In its Nov.
28 editorial, (possibly) E.L. Matthews wrote, “With the erection
and completion of new motor
courts becoming a regular procedure in the county, we gladly
salute this fast-growing industry.
Highway 301 north of Starke
with its string of first-class motels will go far to encourage tourists to stop and get acquainted
with the advantages of living in
Starke or elsewhere in the coun-
ty…There is the old rule in advertising that ‘you have to ‘stop
‘em before you can sell ‘em.’”
“They have faith in what they
are doing,” Matthews said of the
motor court pioneers, “or they
wouldn’t back it up with their
money.”
The comment could have applied to any of a number of other
types of small business owners,
especially service stations and
cafes and restaurants. Around the
same time, the Telegraph reported that tobacco sales taxes had
reached more than $111,000—a
record—during the year.
“Good luck and good fortune
to each and every one of them,”
Matthews said. For a while longer, the Telegraph continued to
call the highway Road 200.
There were numerous reports of accidents along the new
highway, including one where a
Bradford man lost his hand when
hit by a semi-truck. Still, now
that the road was built, Starke
was thinking about annexing to
extend the city limits.
Not until the May 29, 1953,
headline, “301’s Hot,” did the
paper report on or say much
about the new road’s potential
impact. The column featured
extensive quotes from the Richmond-Times Dispatch.
“U.S. Highway 301 is taking
the play away from Route 1 so
fast that it is almost certain to

Bradford, Keystone football teams wrap up playoff berths
Tornadoes ride passing
game to 27-14 win
over Umatilla
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Monitor Editor
Kenny Dinkins caught two
touchdown passes and threw a
76-yard scoring strike to lead the
Bradford High School football
team to a 27-14 homecoming
victory over District 4-4A
opponent Umatilla on Oct. 25.
The win secured a playoff spot
for the Tornadoes (3-4, 3-0 in
District 4) and set up a showdown
with Keystone Heights for the
District 4 championship this
Friday, Nov. 1, in Keystone at
7:30 p.m.
Dinkins’ touchdown pass
came on the Tornadoes’ third
play. Lining up as a wide
receiver, Dinkins took a handoff
from quarterback Jacob Luke on
an apparent reverse. However,
after taking a few steps, the
senior pulled up and hit a wideopen Don Jeffers at midfield.
Jeffers, with a 10-yard head start,
easily outran the closest Bulldog
defender to the north end zone.
Chris Barron added the extra
point to give the Tornadoes a
7-0 lead with 5:27 left in the first
quarter.
On Bradford’s next possession,
the Tornadoes overcame a
motion penalty and a sack
that lost 10 yards to complete
a nine-play drive covering 58
yards. Luke completed throws to
Keaaris Ardley for 10 yards and
to Dinkins for 20 more during
the series. A 9-yard scramble by
Luke and an additional 11-yard
rush by Jarvis Desue took the
ball to the Umatilla 18.
However, on first-and-10
from the 18, a Bulldog pass
rusher broke through Bradford’s
protection and dropped Luke for
a 10-yard loss. Bradford got half
of the lost yardage back on the
following play with a defensive
holding penalty.
Officials flagged the Bulldogs
10 times for 60 yards in the
game, while handing Bradford
seven penalties for 50 yards.
On second-and-14 from the
22, Luke found Dinkins in the
back of the end zone for the
Tornadoes’ second score. Barron
added the point after touchdown
for a 14-0 lead with 9:39 left in
the second quarter.
Dinkins ended the game with

Indians rush for 341
yards in 49-0 win
over Interlachen
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Michael Carroll and Anton
Noble accounted for 221 yards
rushing and three touchdowns
in the first half of a 49-0 District
4-4A win for the Keystone
Heights High School football
team over visiting Interlachen
on Oct. 25.
With the win, the Indians (43, 3-0 in District 4) earned a
regional playoff berth. Their
home game against Bradford this
Friday, Nov. 1, will determine
the District 4 champion. The
Tornadoes (3-4, 3-0) are coming
off of a 27-14 win over Umatilla.
“That’s one goal,” Keystone
head coach Chuck Dickinson,
referring to qualifying for the
playoffs. “The next goal—trying
to win a district championship.
Of course, it’s going to be a heck
of a game—us and Bradford.”
The only negative in the
team’s win over Interlachen was
the loss of Noble to an apparent
knee injury that sent him to the
hospital. Noble played the first
half only, gaining 169 yards on
21 carries. He had a 35-yard
touchdown run.
“Hopefully, Anton’s not a
major injury, but, of course,
that happens,” Dickinson said.
“Other guys have to step up and
take his place.”
Keystone rushed for 341 yards
in all, with quarterback Blake
Valenzuela attempting only two
passes.
“When we play Interlachen,
we try to pound the ball at them
and run hard, take it to them
and play a physical-type game,”
Dickinson said, also noting that
the blocking by his linemen and
tight ends has improved as the
season has progressed.
Noble carried the ball on
seven of Keystone’s first nine
plays, but it was Carroll who

capped each of the Indians’ first
two possessions with touchdown
runs of 5 and 35 yards.
An opportunistic defense
set Keystone up for its third
score of the first quarter. The
Indians forced four turnovers—
the first an R.J. Harvin fumble
recovery, which gave Keystone
the ball at the Interlachen 45.
Noble had straight carries
following the fumble, with his
third run resulting in a 35-yard
touchdown. J.J. Schofield, who
was 7-of-7 on PAT attempts,
kicked the extra point to put
Keystone up 21-0.
By that point in the game, the
Rams (1-8, 0-3) had gained just
10 yards on three possessions.
Their fourth series did not have a
promising start as Lane Blanton
sacked quarterback Dominique
Oliver for a 9-yard loss. Oliver,
though, connected with Elijah
Nelson on a screen pass that
Nelson turned into a 42-yard
gain to the Keystone 20.
Keystone’s defense recovered,
with Josh Knight making a
tackle for a loss of 2 yards and
Brighton Gibbs and Ray Trimble
each breaking up pass plays.
Interlachen, which had two
penalties after reaching the 20yard line, turned the ball over on
downs after failing on a fourthand-22 play.
Noble had a nifty 12-yard run
on which he hurdled a defender
to give the Indians a first down
on the ensuing series. The back
then broke free for a 52-yard
touchdown, but the score was
nullified by a holding penalty.
The Indians eventually punted,
but their defense forced the Rams
to go three-and-out. Keystone’s
offense then responded with a
six-play, 55-yard touchdown
drive. Noble had a 25-yard run to
the Interlachen 23, while Carroll
added an 8-yard run. Valenzuela
would cap the drive with a 14yard run into the end zone as the
Indians built a 28-0 lead with
4:07 remaining in the first half.
A 56-yard kickoff return by
Gibbs to the Interlachen 34 had
Keystone in business to open
the second half. The Indians
fumbled the ball away, but the
Rams returned the favor two

A total of 181 people were
entered into the drawing, with
79 winning various prizes
donated by local businesses and
individuals.
As usual, the gala featured
Terry Vaughan as emcee, who
kept the crowd laughing—or
groaning—with his various
puns.
One source of amusement
was Vaughan poking fun at
his relationship with his wife,
Jennifer. He said she had gotten
him a skydiving session as a
birthday present, but in reading
the certificate she handed him,
he noticed the session did not
include a parachute.
Vaughan said when he pointed
out to his wife you need a
parachute to go skydiving, she
responded, “No, you do not need
a parachute to skydive. You need
a parachute to skydive twice.”
Then, there was this gem.
Vaughan shared a supposed
text message he received from
his wife: “If you’re sleeping,
send me your dreams. If you’re
laughing, send me your smile. If
you’re eating, send me a bite. If
you’re drinking, send me a sip.
If you’re crying, send me your
tears. I love you.”
“Being the romantic sort,”
Vaughan said, “I texted her right
back. ‘I am in the bathroom.
Please advise.’”
In all seriousness, Altrusa

Outdoors outlook, Crosshorn Ministries, fiberglass work by
Griffis and son
A little cooler weather has
arrived, and the local as well
as the saltwater bite reports on
both coasts are absolutely great.
The only problem is that some
people have to go hunting at this
time of the year and cannot find
enough time for both pleasures.
The Suwannee River is back
down into its banks, and red
bellies and bass are biting well
in that direction.
The St. Johns does have a
lot of logs and debris due to
the recent and heavy rain on
the east coast, but the saltwater
fish bite in the brackish water of
the lower river has been good.
Flounder fishermen, especially,
have been reporting fish with
unusually large individual sizes.
Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait
and Tackle in Keystone Heights
reports good minnow sales, but
the better crappie reports seem
to be coming from lakes south
and west of Keystone.
The first phase of dove season
ended Oct. 28, but the second
phase will begin on Nov. 16 and
run through Dec. 1. The dove bag
limit is 15, and the possession
limit is 45. Hunting times run
from a half hour before sunrise
until sunset.
Crosshorn Ministries
Crosshorn Ministries held
its monthly meeting on Oct. 25
at the Starke Golf and Country
Club. This program was directed
toward young people and
featured the following speakers:
John Whitfield, who presented
methods of catching fish under
survival conditions, Mark Neely,
who
offered
identification
details about poisonous snakes,
Dave Cowart, who presented
details relevant to deer hunting,
and Jim Mason, who provided
techniques about sharpening
knives.
Crosshorn Ministries meets
each month on a Thursday
evening from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.
at the Starke Golf and Country
Club. The next meeting will be
Nov. 29.
Woodrow Griffis
Approximately 50 years
ago, Woodrow Griffis Sr. was
working at Jimmy Moore’s Sun
Sports in Starke as a Mercury
outboard motor mechanic and
with fiberglass production. That
was when U.S. 301 was not a
through street, and it made a
90-degree turn at the Andrews
Center, which was then the
Bradford County courthouse.
Traffic proceeded to the Walnut
Street traffic light, then turned
south and proceeded on South
Walnut/301. Sun Sports was
located on that block between
Call Street and Highway 100
near the current location of
Walgreens.
Even before Sun Sports left
Starke, Griffis built a fiberglass
form and began to build flatbottom fishing boats. He
tried to get Moore to register
the boats under the name of
“Stumpknocker,” but time did
not permit the registration,
and Sun Sports did leave
Starke. Griffis continued to build
the boats, and he did register the
boats under the “Stumpknocker”
name. Eventually, 13- and 14foot Stumpknocker fishing boats
populated North Central Florida
to the point that they became the
fishing boat of choice. Time moves on, however, and
Griffis eventually diversified
his business to build fiberglass
hunting dog boxes, toolboxes,
working helmets and even
flumes for DuPont. The family
sold the Stumpknocker brand to
another boat builder, and lighter
aluminum products became
competitive for toolboxes and
dog boxes.
Most relevant to this article,
however, fiberglass work on
fishing boats continues to this
day under the work of Woodrow
Griffis Jr. The younger Griffis
can make or modify any
fiberglass boat to your desired
Woodrow
Griffis Jr. takes
a break from
work on a
cooler that will

specifications. He can add,
remove or replace fish tanks,
bait wells, coolers, decks and
any other conceivable repair
that is needed. He certainly has
sufficient experience because
he started working fiberglass
with his father when he was 11.
His shop is located just off 301
North on Northeast 187th Street. Fiberglass
work
for
Griffis continues to require
diversification, but he maintains
an attraction to boat work for
obvious reasons. If you are in
the market for any fiberglass
boat or repair work, stop by his
shop and talk to him. He will
make suggestions, or he will
do the desired work. And for
the record, the boats he makes
today are sold under the name
GriffCraft.

David Glant
HIGH SPRINGS—Judge David
A. Glant was welcomed home by his
Lord on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013,
surrounded by friends and family at
his home in High Springs following
a lengthy illness.
He was preceded in death by:
his son Matthew; and father, Ernest
Glant.
Judge Glant is survived by: his
mother, Mildred Glant of Bremen,
Ind.; his wife, Casey Glant of
High Springs; his daughter, Keri
(Will) Glant, and grandson, Kieran
Matthew Glant of Jacksonville; and
by his stepson, Alex Klausner of
Gainesville. David is also survived
by: sisters Pam (Jerry) Meister and
Pat Dunsizer; brother Richard (Sue)
Glant; and by numerous nieces and
nephews, and their children, most
of whom reside in the Bremen,
Ind., area. He is also survived by
many members of Casey’s family in
Taiwan, whom David came to know
and love during several trips he and
Casey made there.
David Glant was a man of
humility, integrity and faith, who
loved God and who sought earnestly
to follow and serve his Lord Jesus
Christ. David served actively as a
member and leader of First United
Methodist Church of High Springs,
where he led many Bible studies
and provided music on a regular
basis. For almost 20 years, David
led WSU, a gospel music group that
played in many area churches over
the years. He was an active leader
in the Walk to Emmaus ministry
and participated regularly in local
and international Christian mission
efforts.
David was born and grew
up in Indiana and received his
undergraduate
degree
from
the University of Houston. He
completed the last year of his Juris
Doctor degree at the University of
Florida, College of Law, in 1978 and
accepted a position with University
of Florida Student Legal Services
upon graduation. In 1981, David
entered private practice and then
served for five years as an assistant
state attorney in the Eighth Judicial
Circuit, where he was promoted to
division chief. Returning to private
practice in 1989, David practiced
law from an office in High Springs,
where his practice included civil
and criminal litigation, municipal
law, family law and estate planning.
He was a certified family mediator
and served on the board of directors
of the Eighth Judicial Circuit Bar
Association. He continued in private
practice until his election as a judge
in the Eighth Judicial Circuit in
2002.
Until his retirement in June
2013, Judge Glant presided in both
civil and criminal court throughout
the Eighth Circuit, with extensive
assignments in Alachua, Bradford,
Levy, Gilchrist, Union and Baker
counties. Renowned for his wit as
well as his wisdom, Judge Glant
worked hard throughout his tenure
as a circuit judge to reduce case
backlogs wherever he was assigned.
He was well known for his tireless
work ethic and the high expectations
he had for attorneys who appeared
before him. Respected and admired
by his judicial colleagues for
his personal character and his
professional acumen, Judge Glant’s
counsel and advice was often sought
by his colleagues. He made many
close friends wherever he went and
was beloved by those who spent the
most time with him: court clerks and
the deputies who served as his court
bailiffs, for whom he often expressed
great respect and appreciation.
Judge
Glant
served
as
administrative judge of the Eighth
Circuit Criminal Division and
was the mentor coordinator for
new judges. Judge Glant was the
ultimate professional, leading by
example rather than by words. He
was active in the James C. Adkins
Jr. Inn of Court and was appointed
by the chief justice of the Florida
Supreme Court to serve on the PostConviction Subcommittee, where
he made important contributions to
the revision of the Florida Rules of
Criminal Procedure.
David’s community activities
included over 20 years of active
membership in the High Springs
Rotary Club, where he served as
president. He also served as president
of the PTA and chair of the School
Advisory Committee, conducted
free legal clinics for the elderly and
taught community college courses.
David was an accomplished guitarist
and photographer, and enjoyed
participating in skeet, trap and other
marksmanship competitions. David
was an avid kayaker, and he and
Casey enjoyed many outings on the
rivers and bays of North Florida. He
enjoyed traveling, and he and Casey
made several trips out west and
abroad.
Family and friends gathered to
celebrate David’s life on Wednesday,
Oct. 30, at Trinity United Methodist
Church in Gainesville.
Donations in honor of David
should be made to First United
Methodist Church, P.O. Box 911,
High Springs, FL 32655.
Arrangements are under the care
of Milam Funeral and Cremation
Services of Gainesville.

become Eastern Virginia’s preferred north-south throughway
within a matter of years,” the
Dispatch said.
The Dispatch had told its audience that now, a New York-toFlorida tourist could whiz down
the New Jersey Turnpike, cross
the Bay Bridge (in Delaware),
bypass Washington on the Potomac River Bridge and make
it all the way to Florida by the
most direct route—U.S. 301.
The Telegraph noted that the
results of the new road were the
same in Florida as in Virginia.
In the June 12, 1953, edition, an item announced that
the widening of U.S. 301 from
Call Street to Starke’s southern
city limits and the Hampton cutoff would begin. As Call Street
was widened and the corner at
Walnut rounded off, one office
building had a corner removed
and the building was rounded off
as well.
But already, many were dissatisfied with the new road. As
it was built from a patchwork
of existing roads, U.S. 301 was
“narrow, badly worn and outdated,” the Telegraph summary of
the Dispatch item said. “Therefore, Florida—and Virginia—
must face the facts and take steps
to put U.S. 301 in condition to
live up to its new responsibilities as the fast-growing favorite
route for north-south travel.”
On Sept. 28, 1953, Florida
Gov. Daniel McCarty died suddenly after only seven months in
office. Senate President Charley
E. Johns, a Bradford native who
had long represented the district,
was appointed to fill the remainder of McCarty’s term. The political change brightened the
future for all Bradford County
roads.
Nevertheless, trouble was also
brewing. As Bradford’s senator, Johns had opposed a plan to
build a toll road across central
Florida and another from Jacksonville to Miami. The Dec. 11,
1953, edition of the Telegraph reported that now, Johns had given
his unqualified endorsement to
the “bob-tail” South Florida toll
road and would keep an open
mind on the proposed turnpike
from Jacksonville to Miami.
Bradford residents feared both
projects would kill U.S. 301 traffic and bring Starke’s vibrant
economy to a standstill. Johns
said he would visit Pennsylvania
and other states to study what
had happened to small towns
missed by new major highways.
It was clear that Johns was
thinking about Starke. He even
said so in an address on television, noting all those in Bradford
County who had invested in motor courts, restaurants and service stations.
Still, Johns told Starke residents that as acting governor, he
had to consider the welfare of
the entire state, not just his voter
base in Bradford County. He had,
in other words, to think about
the greater good for the greatest
number.
The Telegraph’s front page
that covered Johns’ Monday
night television speech also included two photos and a writeup of a new Shell station’s grand
opening and its owner, John A.
Torode. The new station would
include modern design, fluorescent lighting, pump stations and
two full-tile restrooms.
The Telegraph’s page-two
editorial took a cautious view of
Johns’ position: “We feel confident that the governor, on his

forthcoming trip to Pennsylvania and New Jersey, will do as
he prides himself on doing in
Florida—lend a sympathetic ear
to the ‘little man’—the ‘man in
the street’ and will not, as some
of his predecessors have done,
communed only with the larger
interests involved.”
The Dec. 25, 1953, edition
of the Telegraph—the last of
the year—reported that Johns
signed a $445 million road program for the following year.
Included would be $50 million
for the proposed east-west turnpike, and more money set aside
to further study the Florida-long
toll road.
Still hopeful, in a December
1955 edition, the Telegraph reported that the Starke City Commission passed a city ordinance
requiring a U.S. 301 setback
for new construction of 50 feet
from the center line of the right
of way. The move looked forward to the already discussed
widening and four-laning of the
highway. The city acted quickly
to commit funds for the rights of
way.
“If we don’t get Highway 301
four-laned before the toll road is
built, we might as well fold up
around here,” said Starke City
Commission Chair H.A. Bishop.
President Dwight Eisenhower’s Federal Aid Highway Act
was passed in 1956, three years
after U.S. 301 was finished. It
was a massive federal undertaking to create limited-access interstate highways to move goods
and traffic rapidly from one end
of the country to the other.

Among the longest of those
highways was Interstate 95,
which looked almost exactly
like the proposed “Floridalong toll road,” except it would
start, not in Jacksonville, but in
Maine, and would run to Miami.
In the mid-1950s, Bradford
residents were horrified when
a proposed map of the new super highway in Florida showed
a boomerang-shaped line down
the state that bowed west in the
northern part of the state, and it
closely followed U.S. 301. The
proposed highway would come
within 3 miles of Starke. For a
number of reasons, including
political pressure, the design
was quickly revised, and the
interstate moved closer to the
Atlantic coast where it was welcomed.
The first interstate highway
wouldn’t be completed for 35
years after the concept was first
proposed. The first section of
Interstate 95, from the state line
to Jacksonville, was completed
in 1960; the last southern link
was completed in 1987. Some
of I-95’s components in northern states have never been completed. At any given moment,
repairs and upgrades are in process somewhere along the super
highway. To date, all interstate
projects have been estimated to
have cost American taxpayers
more than $426 billion in 2006
dollars.

Tigers win 28-7, keep playoff hopes alive
BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN
Times Editor
Despite taking on Chiefland
High
School’s
top-ranked
defense (Gainesville area), the
Union County High School
football team improved to 2-1 in
District 7-1A with a 28-7 win on
Oct. 25 in Chiefland.
Coming into this contest, the
Indians (6-2, 2-1 in District 7)
had allowed just 6.3 points a
game on average this season,
but the Tigers (8-1, 2-1) totaled
316 yards and scored the most
points on Chiefland this year in
keeping their hopes alive for a
regional playoff berth.
Tigers quarterback Caleb Cox
had some good completions,
and Geordyn Green and Daquin
“Buddy” Edwards each had a
good night on offense. Austin
Dukes, Princeton Alexander and
Alden McClellon were strong on
defense. Phillip Lillie did well
on both sides of the ball.
Dukes and McClellon led
the team with 16 tackles each.
McClellon also had a sack, as
did Joshua Hedman.
On one play, McClellon
delivered a hard, audible hit
against the Chiefland player
with the ball—the kind of hit
that made fellow Tigers on the
sideline go, “Ohh!” That was
during the Indians’ second set of
downs, which the Tigers kept in
line with another good tackle—
this one in the backfield.
The Tigers then took over
at their own 40-yard line,
jumpstarting that drive with
a strong run by Green for 19
yards to put them at the Indians’
41-yard line. Alexander added
another 5 yards on the next down,
and then Green contributed
another 13 yards, bouncing off a
hit and then running to the right.
Back-to-back runs by Lillie put
Union County on the scoreboard
first near the end of the first
BHS
Continued from 3B
four catches for 126 yards.
Luke completed six passes
in nine attempts for 144
yards, two touchdowns and no
interceptions.
Midway through the second
period, the Tornado defense held
Umatilla outside of the end zone
for four plays after the Bulldogs
had reached the Tornado 6.
After the goal line stand,
Bradford took over on its own
3-yard line. Desue then broke a
39-yard run, taking the ball to
the Bradford 45, but a motion
penalty backed up the Tornadoes
to the 40.
From there, Luke found

Chiefland defenders near the end zone.
quarter, 7-0, and secured a lead
for the Tigers all night long. The
team made all their extra points
throughout the night.
On Union County’s own 10yard line on its first set of downs
of the second quarter, Cox’s
pass was intercepted, giving
Chiefland great field position
at that same spot. However, the
Tigers’ defense and a couple
of penalties kept the Indians
from getting in the end zone.
The Indians’ second field goal
attempt of the game failed by
inches as the ball actually hit the
bottom bar of the goal posts.
The Indians failed at another
field goal attempt on their first
set of downs of the game at the
Tigers’ 20-yard line.
Halfway through the second
quarter, Union County’s Cox
connected with Andrew Jones
for an explosive 56-yard pass to
move the Tigers from one end
of the field to the other. More
downs; a flicker toss from Cox to
Lillie; and a 17-yard touchdown
pass put the Tigers up 14-0.
The Tigers immediately got
the ball back when an Indian
let the kickoff slip thorough his
hands, and the Tigers’ Darian
Robinson leaped on the ball to
put his team around the Indians’
20-yard line. However, that
scoring opportunity was blown
on the next play when Cox threw
an interception near the sideline.
Fortunately,
the
Indians
couldn’t convert either before the
half ran out, thanks to at least one
solid tackle—or manhandling,
really—by McClellon.
Throughout the game, the
Tigers looked like the ones with
the top-ranked defense.
The second half opened with
a fumble by Union County’s
Lillie on its second play, setting
up Chiefland’s only score of the
game, which made the score
14-7 at the 8:11 mark.
When Union County got the
ball back, Green caught a pass
Dinkins again, this time in
the left flat. When Dinkins
caught the pass, he was alone
with one Bulldog defender.
As the defensive back lunged
toward the sideline to bring
down Dinkins, the Bradford
receiver made a quick cut inside
eluding the defender, and then
sprinted down the home sideline
to the end zone. The play gave
Bradford a 20-0 lead, after the
extra-point attempt was no good.
Bradford’s final score came at
the end of a nine-play, 64-yard
drive, highlighted by another
Luke to Dinkins pass of 24
yards. After the completion,
Tra’von Thomas added a 9-yard
run, taking the ball to the
Bulldog 4. From there, Bradford
gave Desue the ball for the next
three plays. The sophomore
running back broke the scoring
plane on the third attempt from
1 yard out. Barron added the
extra point, ending Bradford’s
27-point output.
Desue led Bradford runners
with 92 yards on 14 carries.
Thomas added 23 yards on
seven carries.
Umatilla, after being shut out
for three quarters, threatened a
comeback in the final period.
The Bulldogs (1-7, 1-3) began
the fourth quarter with a 13play scoring drive, assisted by
a roughing the passer penalty.
Umatilla’s Caleb Robinson, who
lined up at quarterback, running
back and receiver throughout
the game, sparked the drive with
runs of 5, 3, 6 and 4 yards.

Continued from 3B
plays later when a hard hit by
Keystone’s Darein Gilio jarred
the ball loose from a ball carrier’s
hands. Johnnie Fitts fell on the
loose ball at the Interlachen 14yard line.
Carroll, who finished the
game with 79 yards on nine
carries, gained 7 yards before
Keystone was moved 5 yards
back on a penalty. Valenzuela
then hit Micah Brown with a 12yard touchdown pass to make it
a 35-0 game.
Gilio delivered a blow to the
Interlachen offense by causing
the fumble. He would later
deliver a blow to the visitors’
defense when he carried the ball
for a 43-yard touchdown that put
See TIGERS, 12B the Indians up 42-0.
The
Tornado
defense
appeared to have the drive
stalled on the Bradford 18, but
on fourth-and-2, Umatilla went
for the first down and succeeded
with a 7-yard run by Brett Bush.
On the next play, Austin
Bush took a handoff and broke
through the middle of the
Bradford defense, running 15
yards for the Bulldogs’ first
score. Enrique Cisneros added
the extra point, taking the score
to 27-7 with 9:40 left in the
game.
On the ensuing kickoff, the
Bulldogs pulled off an onside
kick, with Cisneros both kicking
the squibbler, and recovering the
loose ball on the Tornado 45.
Umatilla then handed the
ball to Robinson for four of the
next six plays. Number seven
responded with runs of 10, 5 and
minus-4 yards before capping
the drive with a 15-yard, tacklebreaking gallop with 6:51 left in
the game. Cisneros added the
extra point to bring Umatilla
within two scores, with Bradford
holding a 27-14 lead.
Umatilla then lined up for a
second onside kick, but Cisneros
hit the ball too hard, sending it
past the Tornado front line and
out of bounds.
Tornado head coach Steve
Reynolds said after the game
he congratulated the squad for
making the playoffs. He then
told them to focus on Keystone
Heights.
“If we want anything special,”
he said, “we’ve got to make it

from Cox and pushed his way
through Chiefland defenders
to give the Tigers 26 yards and
get them into Indians territory.
However, four incomplete passes
by Cox—one knocked away and
another overthrown in the end
zone—kept the Tigers from
converting.
Back-to-back runs, though, by
Edwards put the Tigers back on
the scoreboard as he rolled and
tumbled into the end zone.
Green continued to have
a strong night as he caught a
17-yard touchdown pass from
Cox, bouncing off a Chiefland
defender and then running it all
the way in down the sideline to
put the Tigers up 28-7 to close
out the game.
In
spite
of
several
interceptions, Cox made some
good throws and continues
to improve as the season
progresses.
“He had a good game as far as
making his reads and getting rid
of the ball,” Union head coach
Ronny Pruitt said. “That was one
of the things we kind of worked
on was him trying to get rid of it
a little bit quicker on some of the
stuff we were doing because we
felt like (the Indians) were going
to be coming after us.”
The junior quarterback threw
for 203 yards.
The Tigers now face the
Williston Red Devils (6-3, 0-3)
for their final district game and
their homecoming bout this
Friday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m., to
make for an interesting night
and the end of Union County’s
big week.
Pruitt said that was just the
way the scheduling worked out
after some things changed and
had to be shifted around. In fact,

Reynolds added that he feels
good about where his team is at
this point in the season.
“I like our chances,” he said.
“We don’t look any farther than
the step that is right in front of
us. If you start looking too far
ahead, you will start tripping.”
As for the Tornadoes’ next
opponent, Reynolds said his
team will face a good Keystone
Heights squad.
“They are a good team over
there,” he said. “They play tackle
football. They will execute well.
They will be tough. They will be
physical, and it will be a tough
ball game.”
The Indians (4-3, 3-0) earned
a playoff berth with a 49-0 win
over Interlachen last week.

The Indians’ final score came
following an interception by Sam
Anderson, which gave Keystone
the ball at the Interlachen 33.
Carroll had runs of 7 and 3
yards to pick up a first down,
while Anderson had two straight
carries for 13 yards. A 3-yard run
by Knight set up Anderson for
a 7-yard touchdown run on the
first play of the fourth quarter.
Interlachen’s best chance
to score was when Oliver
completed a deep pass inside the
Keystone 10-yard line, but the
receiver fumbled the ball, which
was recovered by Keystone’s
Kyler Teague at the 1-yard line.
Keystone’s defense held the
Rams to 147 yards.
“Defensively, we’ve played
well this year,” Dickinson said.
“We’ve got kids flying to the
ball. We’ve just played well.”

Charles Strong had three
touchdown runs as well as
a touchdown reception for
Bradford.
SMAC
Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section • Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013
That was more than enough
time for Strong to tack on one
more score on his 47-yard run.
Williston’s first play from
scrimmage
following
the
Bradford score resulted in an
interception by Chandler, who
returned the ball more than 40
yards to the Williston 23-yard
line. Three plays by the Bradford
offense ran out the clock on a
historic win.
Though the bulk of the
Bradord team is composed of
eighth-graders (25), Brewington
said he and his coaching staff
don’t get caught up in how many
players the team will lose to the
high school. The expectations
are to keep the successes and
wins coming.
“This is a program we’re
building here at the middle
school,” Brewington said.
Brewington said he wished to

down, threw a pass to Chandler
across the middle of the field for
a 38-yard touchdown and a 12-0
lead with 1:45 left in the first
quarter.
Bradford’s defense, which
held Williston to 115 yards,
continued to make its mark on
Williston’s second possession.
Chandler made a tackle for
no gain, while Aundre Carter
dropped a running back for a loss
of 6 yards. Mathews then had an
interception, which he returned
approximately 40 yards on the
first play of the second quarter,
giving the Hurricanes an 18-0
lead.
Williston answered with an
11-play, 51-yard scoring drive.
Dakota Betterson did have a
sack on the drive, but the visitors
scored a touchdown on an 8-yard
run. A tipped pass was caught
on the two-point conversion to
make it an 18-8 game.
The Hurricanes showed again
that long-yardage situations
could not deter their offense.
Bradford had a third-and-16
play, but Strong got free for a
32-yard gain to the Williston
18. Mathews was dropped for
a 2-yard loss on the next play,
but followed that with a 15-yard
run to the 5. Strong scored on
a run from there, with Carter
successfully running it in on the
two-point conversion to give
the Hurricanes a 26-8 lead 10
seconds before the end of the
first half.
Williston received the secondhalf kickoff, but could do nothing
against the Bradford defense.
Strong made two tackles behind
the line of scrimmage. Mathews
broke up a pass on a thirdand-17 play before teammate
Trace Barber came down with an
interception on fourth down.
The Bradford offense covered
53 yards in five plays, with
Carter’s 31-yard run setting up
Strong’s 10-yard touchdown run.
A run by Mathews on the twopoint conversion made the score
34-8.
Williston’s defense came up
with an interception in the fourth
quarter, which gave the team a
first down at the Bradford 36.
A roughing-the-passer penalty
later helped Williston as it scored
on a 12-yard touchdown run. A
successful two-point play made
it 34-16 with 2:59 to play.

participating in homecoming
outside of the game: Cox is
this year’s junior prince, and
Alexander and Green are on the
homecoming court.
But with all that going on,
focus will be more critical than
ever. Pruitt warned his team,
saying, “Williston ain’t got
nothin’ to play for except pride.”
As always, Pruitt told his team
after the game, “Guys, I’m proud
of you,” and then added, “I’m
proud of the way you responded.
I’m proud of the way we went
into practice this week, but more
importantly, guess what: You’ve
got another one on Friday.”
This one could be the most
important game of all for the
regular season. Union could still
finish as District 7 runner-up and
earn a playoff berth with a loss
to Williston. That would entail
district leader Dixie County
defeating Chiefland.
If Chiefland loses to Dixie
County, the Tigers will be the
district runner-up regardless of
whether they win or lose against
Williston. If Union defeats
Williston and Chiefland defeats
Dixie County, then there would
be a three-way tie atop the
district, with each team having
one district loss. A tiebreaking
shootout involving Union, Dixie
and Chiefland would have to be
played to determine the district
champ and runner-up.
Union would be eliminated
from playoff contention with a
loss to Williston and a Chiefland
win over Dixie.
