The father of a three-year-old
who was killed in 1996 by the.
mother's live-in boyfriend is
suing the Department of
Children and Families (DCF) for
damages, alleging that DCF
should have known the child was


in danger and should have taken
steps to protect her.
Larry Christopher Noegel of
Starke has already been
convicted of second-degree
murder and sentenced to 30
years in prison for the death of
Ciara Floyd. The criminal trial
has long been over. hut the civil
trial that resulted from the case is
heing heard this week in


Bradford County by Judge Elzie
Sanders.
The child's father. Fred Flovd
.Jr. of Lake Butler. filed a lawsuit
against DCF in 1997 and that
suit has now progressed to trial.
Attorney Val .Bates.
representing Floyd. said the
plaintiff alleges DCF did not do
enough to protect Ciara after
Floyd made allegations of abuse.


Bates indicated DCF should
have known Ciara was in danger
based on Nocgel's continued
proximity to the child and his
background.
Nocgel'had been arrested on a
domestic violence charge against
an adult woman prior to 1995.
There was a sworn complaint
lodged against him in December
of 1995 by Tanya Timmons of

County

settles
*. -i / %
with CSX-

By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

Bradford County managed to
negotiate a $17,000 reduction in
unpaid railroad maintenance
costs to CSX Transportation.
CSX failed to bill Bradford
for five years, from 1997-2001,
for the its share of maintaining
railroad crossings throughout
the county. CSX shares these
costs with each county in the
state.
The county set about
negotiating upon receipt of the
original $37,000 invoice. One
nf the crossings the county was
billed for was found to be the
c iy of Lawtey's responsibility,
v. which somewhat reduced the
county's indebtedness.
CSX's most recent offer gave
the county the choice of two
options a reduced lump-sum
payment of $27,127 or five
annual, interest-free payments
of $7,393 ($36,965).
Bradford County sent its
attorney back to negotiate a

Homeowner poses questions about fire response


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

The Bradford County
Co'nini.sion has promised to
try to answer questions
surrounding a Dec. 8 Melrose
fire that consumed the home of
James and Helen Smith.
Helen Smith told the board
Jan. 3 that the'county needs to
do something about fire
response.
Smith said she had risen just


before midnight when she heard
'a loud "boom," after which she
woke her husband. Both she
and her husband left the home
after another such explosion,
although both were coughing
from smoke inhalation by the
time they re.,ched the front
door, she said.
"You can't imagine how
tragic, it was to sit there and
watch your home and
everything you own go up in
smoke," she said.
Smith questioned the


response of the departments
involved and also the decision
of the first truck on the scene
not to tap an available fire
hydrant, although she
passionately insisted that they
do so.
"I kept pointing because the
fire hydrant was within a few
hundred yards of my home
because they only had one
squirt of water going up over
the house, and it was aimed
more up at the trees than it was
on my home," Smith said.


Smith said she was told by
those firefighters that they
couldn't tap the hydrant
because they didn't have
permission.
Smith said local counties
should have worked together
better to save her five-year-old
house, which was located in a
neighborhood filled with retired
couples like her and her
husband, and she raised
questions about communication
between those counties.


"I just feel that the counties
- Bradford, Putnam, Alachua
and Clai have got to get
to-gether," Smith said. -"'s-a
shame that the counties have to
argue with each other over
who's going to respond to a
fire, especially like that one."
The Smiths' home was built
in the Seminole Ridge
Subdivision where the street
divides homes on opposite sides
between Bradford and Clay

City-county making decisions on manager posTtions


* Starke working to
narrow city manager
applicants.

By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

After receiving a grand total
of 25 applications for the job of
city manager, the Starke city
commissioners will begin
reviewing those applications
this. week and continue that
process during a workshop next


week. '
The closing date for
applications was Dec. 29,
although two were accepted
after that date because of
extenuating circumstances.
SMayor Carol n Spooner has
put together a, team of
professionals to assist in the
initial application screening
process. She will meet with
that team later this week to
choose the most suitable
applicants for the commission
to consider.

* County approves
job description for
manager.

By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

The Bradford County
Commission has unanimously
approved a new job description
for the county manager it
intends to hire this year.
The description borrows
heavily from the position
description already in place for


a county administrator, but
contains key changes regarding
personnel authority.
Commissioner John Cooper
added new language, based on a
discussion of the matter during
the commission's December
workshop retreat.
The additions allow for the
manager to "select, employ and
supervise all personnel, fill all
vacancies, positions or
employment for all authorized
and approved positions under
the jurisdiction of the board."
The selection of department
heads, however, will require


commission approval.
As the county's personnel
manager, the county manager
will also have the authority to
"discipline, suspend or
discharge any employee under
the jurisdiction of the board
pursuant to disciplinary
guidelines, adopted by the
board." (
Again a distinction is drawn
between regular employees and
department heads. Department
heads will only be able to be
fired by the county manager for

Commercial zoning approved for site on US-301 N


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

Realtor Tom Smith and
Beaudawg LLC have
successfully rezoned property
on north US-301 that-could one
day serve as a filling station
between the cities of Lawtey
and Starke.
The Bradford County
Commission approved the
rezoning application, which
received the unanimous support
of the zoning board, by
ordinance on Dec. 16 but
only after hearing concerns over
future development from


nearby landowners.
The land in qijesti.n is
located on the west side of
north 301 near NW 201"s Street.
It is bordered on the south by
the former hotel property of Bill
Bubby and to the north by the
property of Jackie and Nadia
Thomas.
Nadia Thomas was one of the
two landowners present to
oppose the rezoning of the now
vacant property, which was
acquired by Beaudawg through
Suntrust Bank of Miami. The
previous landowner, Richard
Thoni, died in 1986.
Thomas was unsure what
would be built at the site if the


zoning were changed, and said
she did not want to see a gas
station or convenience store
there:
Joe Bakken, who owns the
acreage across 301, expressed
similar sentiments in a letter to
the commission, arguing the
proposed commercial intensive
category was inappropriate as
no commercial establishment
had operated in the area in
many years.
Bakken suggested his opinion
might change if there was
specific knowledge of what
business might one day operate
at the site.
"However there are too many


uses permitted in this
(commercial category) that
would be unattractive and
detract from the
residential/agricultural nature pf
the area, and specifically
perhaps negatively impact on
my property and its value as a
residential farm," Bakken
wrote.
As presented, Bakken
considered the application too
open-ended.
Smith said if the property
were rezoned, a commercial
user would be enticed to buy
the. property and build an
establishment at the location.
"Right now we don't have a


specific use in mind, but my
first choice would be for a
convenience store," Smith said,
adding that gasoline sales in
that area would fill the gap
between Starke and Lawtey.
At one time he said, the
property was a truck stop, but
the commercial category was
changed sometime after that.
Hearing the support of the
zoning board for the
application, the commission
unanimously approved the
commercial rezoning.
'Commissioner Eddie Lewis
verified that any future site plan
would have to be approved by

Churches freed



to locate near bars


By MARK J. CRAWFORD,
"; c,:'g 2 Staff Writer

Bradford County has
preserved the 2. SImi-foot
distance required of bars
wishing to locate near churches
while freeing up churches to
locate near establishments
serving alcohol if they so
choose.
Another look at Bradford's
ordinance was deemed
necessary when a citizen
proposing a new church in
Lawtey was told he would be
prohibited from establishing the
church at the desired location
because of the proximity of a
nearby bar.
Saying the intent of the
ordinance was always to restrict
bars and not churches, the
county commission's initial
response was to redraft its
ordinance, reducing the
required separation between


churches and bars from 2,500 to
1,000 feet in order to
accommodate the Lawtey
church, but leaving the same
requirement for schools
untouched.
The proposed reduction
didn't sit well with everyone, as
Pastor Jason Reed from New
River Baptist Church in
Brooker pointed out. He said
his understanding of the law
was that bars, not churches,
were restricted by the 2,500-
foot requirement. Reducing
that requirement .to 1,000 feet
would be a step backwards if it
allowed bars to move closer to
churches, Reed said. He said he
did not have a problem if it was
a church making the decision to
be closer to a bar, however.
County Attorney Terry
Brown said the county's
ordinance did impose that
restriction on churches, but it
was discovered that such a
restriction was trumped by a
federal law that prevents such


restrictions on churches and
other religious institutions.
Brown said the county could
maintain the status quo.
acknowledging federal law and
allowing the Lawtey church to
locate, but recommended the
county adopt the new ordinance
to make county codes consistent
with 'federal requirements. If
concern remained over the
reduced restriction on bars from
2.500 to 1,000 feet, the county
could amend the new ordinance
before adoption.
The commission did maintain
the 2,500-foot distance
requirement and added
language to the ordinance
drafted by Commissioner John
Cooper that specifically
referenced federal law
protecting churches from
location restrictions.

Arch Thomas Jr. (at right with arms raised) worked on getting the Lakewood
Subdivision qualified as a firewise community and is shown in this 2003 photo
talking to volunteers who assembled to remove fire threats like downed trees, leaves
and branches on roofs or near chimneys and shrubbery growing too close to homes.




A Bradford icon passes


Bradford County residents, more.
especially those around Starke, knew
Arch Thomas Jr. as a good attorney, a
good friend and a good citizen, but his
passage from this earth on Dec. 21-
brought the realization that we have lost
an icon from our community. The fact that
he moved from Starke many years ago
made him no less a Bradford aficionado
than when he got his mail here. He and his
wife, Jean Snodgrass Thomas, were living
in Ft. Lauderdale when he died at age 80.
It is unfortunate that I never knew him
personally, but on several occasions he
wrote congratulatory notes: when I wrote
something he liked in the Telegraph. I like
to believe he always thought of Bradford
County as being his hom'n :
He was born in Union County, but he
has no Union County roots or relatives.
-His-father:-Arch Thomas Sr., was a native
of Clay County and was married to Eva
Mae McKinney, whose family lived near
Sampson Lake. The couple moved to
Starke and the three children. Arch Jr.,
Clarice Wood and Delano, attended
Bradford County schools.
Arch Thomas Sr. ran for, and was
elected, Bradford County clerk in 1933
and held office until his retirement 20
years later, in 1953. During his tenure, he
invested heavily in real estate, buying a
large tract of land on and around Crosby
Lake. Arch Thomas Jr. acquired that
property and adjacent acreage through
inheritance and purchase.
Young Thomas graduated from
Bradford High School and entered the
University: of Florida, but World War II
intervened and he entered the U.S. Army
Air Corps and subsequently attended
flight school. He was a commissioned
pilot and a second lieutenant, but the war
was ending and there was a surplus of
pilots, so he was discharged from the
service.
Thomas returned to the university and
received his law degree in 1948. He
returned to Starke, established a law
practice and married. His practice did
well, and he became active in the
community's social and commercial life.
He held offices : in various ci ic
organizations, including the American
Legion where he served as post
.,commander and later as state commander.
In 1960, Thbmdas was elected to the
Florida House of Representatives and
served three terms, 1961-65.
The law practice was going well, but the
political campaign required time away
from the office, so Thomas sought 'an
associate to relieve the workload.' His
search led to attorney George Pierce in
Gainesville, working for the law firm of
Carmichael and Scruggs. Thomas
recognized excellence in the young
attorney, who would one day own the Inw
.firm,-becomeuacounty judge and retire as
a circuit judge in the 8th Judicial District.
Pierce said he came to Starke because
Thomas offered him more money that he
was then making and with a young family
he needed the increased income. He soon
became a partner in the firm and when
.Thomas moved away, Pierce bought his
equity. Later on, Pierce brought Dudley
Hardy into the firm, made him an


associate and later sold the firm to him as
Pierce donned the robes of county judge.
Hardy's practice is successor to the
Thomas law firm, established in 1948.
Thomas, after having served in the
legislature and figuratively having
climbed all the mountains of Bradford
County, looked for wider fields. He told
his brother, Delano, that he was "fed-up
with writing land deeds and serving as
attorney for divorce cases." In 1966 he
sold his law practice to 'his associate,
Pierce, and moved to Ft. Lauderdale. In
his new home, he immediately plunged
into civic, social and commercial
activities, and won leadership rolls in
many. His acquaintance and friendship
with outstanding'"office h'1lders'-fri6h'
Bradford County, including Congressman -
R.A. "Lex" Green, Governor Charlie
Johns, Commissioner of Agriculture
Doyle Connor, and others 'frorf--
throughout the state, reflected well upon
him as a person and provided influence
for moving his interests in Tallahassee
and elsewhere.
Before moving from Starke, Thomas
began working in real estate, buying and
selling real property. Long-term financing
was in short supply in Bradford and
Union counties, so he spearheaded the
drive to establish a savings and loan
association. With his record of integrity
and drive to get things done. he quickly
had enough funding pledged to make the
dream into reality. The names and officers
of the First Federal Savings and Loan
Association read like a list of movers and
shakers in the county.
Although he had moved away 13 years
earlier, in 1981 Thomas began to develop
Lakewood Subdivision just off SR-100,
near Crosby Cemetery and adjacent to
Crosby Lake. Some of the land near the
lake is.wetlarid and may not be suitable
for home sites, but there are literally
dozens of sites in which the land is high
and dry,'with many large oaks growing. A
homeowners' association has been
formed to regulate buildings and an
association-owned park has been set aside
on the lake for homeowners' use. Many-
beautiful homes have been built in the
subdivision.
Archibald Thomas III said development
of the property will continue as his father
envisioned, with 'his mother, Jean
Thomas, retaining control of the complex.
Although he moved away several ears
ago, his memory is alive and his influence
continues to be felt in the community he
loved. He and his family were loved in
return and his death is felt throughout our
community.

Starke school teachers share thoughts on 2005


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

A new year is underway and
with a new year comes
reflection. What will the year
bring? What do I hope to
accomplish during the year.
.What would I like to see
happen?
Some of the teachers at
public schools in Starke shared
their thoughts on the new year
(see related story for some
thoughts from
teachers/employees in Brooker,
Hampton and Lawtey):
Bradford High School
teacher and coach Deac Story
said the thing he would like to.
see in 2005 is more students
pass. the FCAT, but he would
also like to see more students
willing to work hard in order to
achieve that.
"I'd like to see more kids put
forth the effort and take on
some of, the responsibility
instead of just assuming that the
teachers are going to take all of
the responsibility," Story said.
"Yes, it is part of the teachers'
responsibility to get kids
passing the FCAT, but it's more
of the students' responsibility to


Deac Story


Christie Torode

be receptive and to be willing to
work at passing it."
Story recently got married, so
a personal goal of his in 2005 is
to be a good husband.
Other than that, Story wants
to try to achieve the same thing
this year that he tries to achieve
every year.
"My New Year's resolutions
are the same every year-to be
a better Christian man," he said.
"That's what I try to do every
day."
Pride is something
Bradford High School teacher
Christie Torode would like to
see more of in 2005.
"I would really like to see the
kids take more pride in their
school because this is their
school," Torode said. "It's a
good school and they're given
good opportunities here."
A sense of 'pride, however,
should not be limited to the
BHS campus, Torode said.
".I would like to see the
American people taking pride in
being an American instead of
being divisional," she said.
"We re all-- Americans,-
regardless of what we believe."
As far as personal goals in


2005, Torode said she would
like to spend more time in
prayer and in reading the Bible.
"My life is so busy and
involved in kids, school and
family life," Torode said'. "It's
hard to find the time that you
need to spend in a day praying
and reading the Bible.
Hopefully, I can accomplish
that this year."
0 Robbie Best teaches an
elective technology class at
Bradford Middle School and
one thing he would like to see
in 2005 is for the students to be
exposed to more cutting-edge
technology that will help them
later in their lives.
"I think that one of the things
we really need to focus on as a
school system-and myself as a
teacher-is making sure that
students have as much access to
the technology that's already
being employed in the
workplace," Best said.
One thing Best would like to
continue working toward in
2005 is being able to help those
students who, because of
behavioral problems, are not
succeeding in the classroom.
These students are "slipping
through the cracks," Best


said-their behavior does not
warrant that they be sent to the
Renaissance Center, but it does
prevent them from being
successful in a regular
classroom setting.
Best said he would like an
opportunity to help those
students in a formal school
setting.
"I'd like to explore some
opportunities to meet those
needs," Best said.
Best is looking forward to
continuing to coach the middle
school football team in 2005, as
well as taking on another sport.
"This will be my first year of
coaching baseball, so I'm
looking forward to the
opportunity of doing that," Best
said.
E Don Kelly, a seventh
grade math and pre-Algebra
teacher at Bradford Middle
School, said he would like to
see students improve their
scores on the FCAT in 2005.
He's hoping he and fellow
BMS teacher Gayle Weaver can
help students improve their
scores with a grant received
through Florida State
University. The grant provides
different teaching materials that


Apryl Coleman and Tangalia Bass


are designed to help students
perform better in math.
"We're doing a few things in
our classes that will hopefully
help us meet that goal (of
students improving their FCAT
scores),",Kelly said.
Kelly would also like to see
the parents become more.


involved in their children's
education.
"I think that's one place-
we've fallen short," he said.
"We need to get them more
involved in the schools. I'm not
sure how to do that, but there

ponder the new year


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Some of the staff -at' he:
public schools in Brooker,
Hampton and Lawtey shared
their thoughts on the the new
year, including Brooker
Elementary School teachers
Karen Melvin and Pam Parrish
who have some hopes for their
students in 2005.
Melvin said she would like to
see her students continue to
grow and make achievements
academically as well as
experience growth socially.
Melvin said she would also
like to see the students get
along with each other, and work
together, more in 2005. She
said she wants the students to
realize "we're all members of
society and for that society to
function we all have to work
together."
Parrish said she, too, wants to
.see more cooperation among
the students, as well as
tolerance among students in her
own classroom.
"I would' like to see my kids
get along better," Parrish said.
"It's a very small classroom and
we have a lot of kids. We work
very hard all day long and we
kind of get frustrated with each
other. I'd like to see them.
realize we have to get along in
the world."
I The new year also brings
about continuing education for
the two teachers.
"I start my master's program
some time this year," Parrish
said, while Melvin will
continue working toward
earning her specialist's degree.
Overall, Melvin said she
would like to see more people
"just be happy in life itself and
not just dwell so much onthe
negative-always look at the
positive in things, no matter

every other weekend. half the
summer and for a week at
Christmas. That was the
arrangement Floyd and Jones
had worked out on their own,
even before lawyers became
involved in the divorce
proceedings.
Floyd had called DCF in
January of 1996 to report what
looked like cigarette burns on
Clara's hands. Noegel was
apparently not involved in this
incident since he was not living
with Jones at the time. An aunt
was accused of having caused
the burns, but when a nurse
practitioner examined Clara a
week later, she said the marks
looked like the childhood
disease impetigo. Joyner also
investigated this earlier incident.
After taking Ciara to the
hospital in June of 1996, Floyd's
visitations with his daughter
continued for several weeks
without incident. In July of
1996, an early-morning call to
the Floyd home informed the
family that Ciara had fallen off a
slide and had been lifeflighted to
Jacksonville.
Floyd and his family went to
the hospital where they found
that Ciara had suffered brain
damage, head and neck injuries,
a broken arm and injuries to her
ribs and stomach. She was in a
coma when the Floyd family
arrived. She never regained
consciousness.
When doctors told Floyd and
Jones that the child was brain-
dead and would likely never
regain consciousness, even if she
lived, the divorced parents made
the decision together to remove
her from life support.
Floyd held the child in a
rocking chair as she died a short
time later.
Noegel was later determined
to be responsible for the injuries
that caused Ciara's death.
"Christmas was really hard,"
said the tearful father. "When it
gets to be Christmas time and
instead of figuring out what
you're going to buy someone for
Christmas, you're figuring out
what to put at their gravesite -
that's really rough."
The defense called witnesses
in further testimony after press
time Tuesday. The jury will then
be asked to decide if Floyd
should be given a monetary
award due to damages and
suffering. All that information
will be covered more extensively
next week.

Consumers
are urged to
check out
health clubs
Florida -Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers
to check out health clubs
before joining or the only
thing they may lose is money.
Losing weight and getting in
shape is a top New Year's
resolution, but consumers who
are overeager to get started
might end up making an
unwise financial commitment
prior to investigating a health
club. During the past year, 87
health clubs went out of
business, so it is important
that consumers are educated
about their rights.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services administers the Health
Studio law, which provides
consumers protection and
recourse against health clubs
that do not comply with the
law. All such facilities are
required to be registered with
the Department and many must
also post a bond to protect club
members in the event the
health studio goes out of
business.
"I am a staunch proponent of
physical fitness, but consumers
who decide a health club is the
way to go should take a little
time to check out a club prior
to signing a contract," Bronson
said. "There are more than
1,500 health clubs registered
with the Department and,
unfortunately, not all are able
to stay in business. Consumers
need to know what redress they
have if a gym does close its
doors."
The law provides consumers
with the right to cancel a
contract for several reasons
including: cancellation within
three days of signing a
contract; exclusive of holidays
and weekends, but it must be
done in writing; if the facility
moves more than five driving
miles away from the original
location and fails to provide,
within 30 days, a facility of
equal quality located, within the
five miles; if a person becomes
physically unable to use most
of the services for which they
contracted, until the disability
ends. rr~ t ,'.,
Bronson .also recommends.
consumers 'Tollbw thde'tips
before signing a contract:
Call the Department's
helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA
(1-800-435-7352) to make sure


the health studio is registered
and to check its complaint
history.
Find out if the studio has
posted a bond with the
Department, as most that
collect fees in advance are
required to do.
Prior to joining, ask
about the club's cancellation
policy should you move or
become physically unable to
use the facility.
Before signing up, visit
the club during the hours you
intend to use it to determine
whether it is overcrowded and
the equipment you plan to use
is available.
Find out if any of the
services offered require an
additional fee.
Bronson said it is important
to read proposed contracts
thoroughly and make sure you
get all promises made by club
personnel in writing. Ask
questions to make sure you
understand the terms of your
membership.

needs to be an emphasis there."
.: As.far as personal goals for
2005,g:. Kelly 'would4M-iketo
'hopl'fufly 'take' on a"nenw
challenge within the school
system. -
"I would like to move into an
administrative position," said
Kelly, who earned a master's
degree in educational leadership
last year. "That's a goal that I
have and would like to meet
soon."
Tangalia Bass and Apryl
Coleman, first- and third-grade
teachers, respectively, at
Southside Elementary School,
said one thing they would like
to see in 2005 is for their
students to not be so concerned
about the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT)-a test they won't
take until their fourth-grade
year. Bass said she had a
student last year who was
"freaking out" over the prospect
of having to take the test.
"It's kind of sad for them to
be so young and they're already
worried about the FCAT in first
grade," Bass said. "It's stressing
Themm"


"I'd like all of the troops in
Iraq, Afganistan or anywhere to
come home," Sapp said. "I'd
like to see everyone learn to get
along. I wish more families
would stay together."
Said Wadsworth: "I'd like to
see everyone working together
for the same goals-the
betterment of mankind."
Receptionist Barbara Brown
would like to see a more
peaceful world in 2005.
"I'd like there to be no more
wars and no more tidal waves,"


Coleman said she wanted to
see her. students "relax and
enjoy learning" this year.
Both teachers also shared the
sentiment that they would like
to see' more parental
involvement in 2005.
"I have some parents I see
two to three times a week, who
I hear from all the time," Bass
said. "Then you have some you
don't hear from at all."
This year will also bring
about a change in Coleman's
life.
"I'll be getting married, so
I'm excited about that," she
said, adding that she is looking
forward to her "new life."
Al Solano, who teaches
the gifted class at'Southside
Elementary School, said he
would like to see the school's
students work hard in
improving their scores and
helping the school achieve an
"A" grade from the state.
Solano said he wants to be
.able. to take his class to.a higher
level in-2005.and would .like.to
"e6'elIT'teaicheYs' work'fi'gettitig
better this year.
"'My wish for myself and all
the teachers here at Southside,
as well as all the teachers here
in Bradford County, is that we
become more committed to
education, to reach a higher
standard and to get more


Brown said. "World
peace-that's what I'd like to
see.
Brown would also like to see
good things for Bradford
County children.
"I would like to see every
child achieve his or her goals,"
she said. "I would like to see
every child do his or her best."
N Lawtey .Community
School teachers Joyce Johnson,
Sheila McClellan and Cheri
Whitehead have some
expectations for their students


involved with these children,"
Solano said. "I think that we're
doing a great job here in this
county, but I think we can do
better."
As far as a personal goal,
Solano hopes to participate in a
couple of U.S. indoor track
meets this year and break the
world record in the 800-meter
run in his age group.
Something else Solano would
like to see in 2005 is more unity
among people in the
world-unity that was seen
after the events of Sept. 11,
2001 or that is being seen now
after the Indian Ocean tsunami.
"I want to see' the world
coming together without having
to wait for a catastrophe to
happen," Solano said.
Starke Elementary School
teachers Pam Bryant and
Suzanne Starr said they are
looking forward to continuing
the strategies they have
implemented in their
classrooms, and watch irng ,their
students, e6ntinue to eoeell-in
2005.
Starr is a first-year teacher, so
she said she has an obvious goal
for 2005.
"I just want to continue to
improve," she said.
Starr said she is also looking
forward to her husband


in this new year.
"I'd like to see our kids come
back with an attitude of being
ready to learn," McClellan said.
"The teachers are ready. It's a
new year and I have high
expectations for this year."
Said Whitehead: "I'd like to
see the kids come back
motivated and ready to go, to
come back with some
excitement and eagerness in
preparing for the new year."
Johnson said she would like
tp see the students return to


school with the mindset of
putting forth hard work and
getting more out of sch: -' that
will help them later in life.
"Our kids, so many of them
want to come here and just be
entertained, or they want you to
do it all," Johnson said. "I
would like to see them more
self-motivated and setting goals
for themselves-even little
children-to prepare better for
life."
One thing McClellan would
like to accomplish in '05 is to
read more.
"I always make that a New
Year's resolution," she said.
Johnson said she wants to be
more health conscious this year.
"I want to exercise, eat better
and be healthier," Johnson said.
Whitehead said she would
like to see people in this
country pull together and have
more faith in God this year.
There is something else she

completing his five-year service
with the Marines in April.
Bryant said she hates to see a
tragedy (the Indian Ocean
tsunami) be the focus at the
start of a new year, but she
hopes the incident caused other
countri.0, to I view the,'p(.ited
States :-in' a .more::pos-ititye
light-as a country willing to
help out in any way it can.
, "We're a considerate country
and, hopefully, that's coming
across around the world-that
the United States is" there when
there are tragedies," Bryant
said.
Starke Elementary teacher
Renee Cassels said her hopes
for 2005 are to see her students
reach their full potential and for
her to do what is necessary to
meet their academic needs.
She would also like to see
more cooperation between the
community and the schools to
help educate children.
"I feel like for education to
be successful, it starts with the
home, the community and the
schools working together to
benefit the needs of -the
children," Cassels said.
Cassels also has one general
wish for everybody in 2005:
"I'd like to have a healhv and
safe year for myself, for my
'family and for everyone." .

and I share-cropped a three-acre
garden together. I saw deer
tracks right after we planted and
I hung a few bars of Ivory soap
on a sling'line around my greens,
and I spread some human hair
(from the boy's haircuts) on the,
ground. No deer ate my greens. I
suppose that this proves that kids
and deer are somewhat similar.
,They don't like soap, greens or
working in the garden!
Crepuscular
Ok, I get to use my new big
word, crepuscularr". Some
animals are most active during
the day; they are diurnal. Others
are more active at night; these.
are nocturnal. Deer, and -a few
insects, birds, bats and such -
all are more active at dusk or
dawn, when the light is lower,
mottled or-even twilight. They
are crepuscular.
The professionals who study
biological timekeeping believe
that there are light cues in certain
animals. For example, a deer's
eyes are much different from a
man's. Compare how, at night,
you.'can sometimes see your
headlights reflected in a deer's
eyes, but not in a human's.
I So, if the deer moves around
more at dusk and dawn, this
should be our best time to see
one.
A great theory, but, just like
you, I have seen many'deer in
the middle of the day and at all
times of the night. Perhaps these
are actually sleepwalking.
The chase goes on
So we hunters "chase 'this
creature with weird sleeping
habits. We spend untold hours in
tree stands and uncounted
money on every kind of gear
imaginable. And we do dream of
that beautiful 10-point rack on
the wall.
Why? I suppose it is so that we
can look up on the wall and tell
the story the rest of our natural
lives.
Hunter's tip for the week
Eat more carrots. Fact: The
carrot improves crepuscular
vision because it increases visual
acuteness. So, eating them up in
the stand at dusk or dawn
equalizes the playing: field.
Bring it on;'deer!
Warning:- Don't nobody out
there feed any carrots to the deer,
or none of us will ever get one!

Giving out food, receiving blessings


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Joanne Fussell received a
hug.
Moments of gratitude like
that are experienced almost
daily by those, like Fussell, who
volunteer their time to work at
the Bradford Ecumenical
Ministries Food Pantry in
Starke. Dennis O'Neal,
president of the Food Pantry,
said one volunteer told him:
"The people in need get the
food and the workers get the
blessings."
The Food Pantry is a non-
profit organization, staffed
entirely by volunteers, that
provides emergency food. It has
one major fundraiser every
year-the Walk for
Hunger-but also relies heavily
on donations.
"We sustain ourselves on
contributions and the good-
heartedness of local people,
both in money and actual
collections of food," volunteer
Arley McRae said.
Since its inception in
February 1989, the Food Pantry
has provided food to 52,260
people (25,877 of which were
children) in Bradford County.
In 2004, the Food Pantry
provided 3,126 bags of food to.
6,069 people (3,100 children).
Repeat visitors to the Food
Pantry are included in. those
totals. McRae said people are
allowed to obtain food once
every three months or twice in a
six-month period.
"As an emergency food
outlet, we do allow people to
have repeat visits because
people have repeat
eniergencic'." McRae said.
MNR.,e h:. worked with the
Food Pantry approximately
eight years-eight enjoyable
years.
"I've enjoyed every minute
of it," McRae said. "I' just a
wonderful m.ni r."
The Food Pantry, which is
open Monday-Thursday, 1-4
p.m. (;i.hh the exception of
holidays), is staffed by two or
three volunteers each day.
Fussell and her husband, David,
have been volunteering for
approximately two years.
"We can do it because we are
retired." David Fussell said.
"It's our way of helping."
Joanne Fussell said she
remembered handing food out
to one family when a child in
the family,, upon seeing the
food, exclaimed, "Oh, Mama,
we've got some good stuff."
It was a touching moment for
Joanne.
"It was just real special
because it's a trying time for
most people when they come
down here," she said. "It's like
you've hit bottom when you
come. It'sjust a little way we
can help people who have come
to the end of their rope.
The number of visitors the
Fussells or any volunteers see
during the day can vary. Joanne
remembered that not many
people showed up during her
first day as a volunteer. Fussell
said she brought a book with
her the next time, but she did
not have time to read it because
of the number of people who
showed up to get food.
"I would prefer that we have

a line waiting because you get
to see more people and you get,
to serve more people," she said.
"You can read the book another
day."
McRae said he recalls days
where more than 50 bags were
given out, but approximately 20
bags per day is what is usually
handed out.
"That would equate to
probably seven to nine
families," McRae said.
.Many Food Pantry volunteers
come from Bradford County
churches. There are six to seven
churches that comprise
Bradford Ecumenical Ministries
each year, but McRae said
other churches have also been
supportive.
"Even though they're not
members of Bradford
Ecumenical Ministries per se,
other churches have come
forward and.have been very
instrumental in helping us with
contributions, donations and
volunteers," McRae said. "It
really is a community effort."
The food that stocks the Food
Pantry comes from several
sources, one of the main ones
being Second Harvest, a
Lutheran outreach program
which has distribution centers
in Jacksonville and Gainesville.
McRae said most of the items
acquired from Second Harvest
are canned goods, though
sometimes cereal and pasta are
available. The Food Pantry pays
a handling fee, which is
currently .18 cents per pound, to
SSecond Harvest.
The canned goods from
Second Harvest, which are
picked up once every rionth or
two, are considered the basic
food items people need in their
diets. The Food Pantry is also
able to provide other food items
with the help of Albertson's and
Publix grocery stores in
Gainesville that donate day-old
items from their delicatessens,
such.as fried chicken, salads,
bread, cakes and pastries.
"All of it is certainly edible
food," McRae said. "We watch
very carefully to make sure the
breads and pastries don't go out
ofcondition."
Those food items are picked
up every Saturday and Sunday


morning by Floyd and Mary
Rainey. The couple goes to
three of the participating stores
each of those days.
People within Bradford
County have been very helpful,
as well. The Altrusa Club and
the post office participate in
food drives every year and the
county's schools have also been
a big help. That includes a
successful food drive by
Bradford High School's
National Honor Society
students and teacher Greg


Marshall.

Pantry to survive this year
without the support of the
schools.
"We were really hurting as of
a month ago," McRae said.
"That's when the school system
came through big time for us."
Those donations really help
because it has become a chore
to find food from other food
banks such as Second Harvest.
"The food source has really
dried up considerably from
what it was to start with," said
Thomas O'Brian, past president
of the Food Pantry.

O'Brian said the Food Pantry
once had to resort to purchasing
food from Dollar. General,
ordering $200-$300 worth of
food every other month.
"Really, that was the main
thing that kept us going (at that
time)," O'Brian said.
McRae said the difference
between now and five or six
years ago is night and day.
"Back then food was readily


and cheaply available,' McRae
said. "Today it's not available
and when you do find 4it you're
going to pay a little biti more for
it, generally.
"Right now is a though time
for us, but every time 'we think
we're going to have to -close the
door, somebody comes through
with food. You never know
where it's coming 'from. It
comes from all different
directions."
Help may even come from
people who once benefitted
from the Food Pantry/. O'Brian
said he has seen people who


have received food from the
pantry return when they were
back on their feet and make
donations themselves. Those
people say they want to help
others just as others helped
them in their time of need.
"That's real rewarding to
hear them say that," O'Brian
said.
The Food Pantry is located at
321 Andrew St. in Starke, off of
US-301 South (opposite
Powell's Dairy Freeze). If you
would like more information
concerning the Food Pantry or
would like to make a donation,


please drop by the site or call-
McRae at (904) 964-2459 or-.
Applean Brown at (904.) 964-

You may also call McRae
and Brown if you are interested
in volunteering, something.
Joanne Fussell recommends.
She and her husband work at
the Food Pantry once a month, -
so it is not something that is a
strain on their lives.
"I don't know, why
everybody doesn't have a day
when they come help because it
is so rewarding," Fussell said.
