Rainbow Center to offer voluntary

pre-K program next school year


.} By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer

The Rainbow Center at 501
W. Washington St. will offer
eligible 4-year-olds a free,
voluntary educational program
that is designed to help pinpoint
and nip learning difficulties in
the bud.
In November 2002, Florida's
voters passed a constitutional
amendment requiring a
voluntary, prekindergarten


(VPK) program for children. In
January 2005, Governor Jeb
Bush signed his approval anid
the bill became law.
Districts that meet
qualifications to run the VPK
program must offer it to any
qualified child that wishes .to
enroll.
In the past, there was a pre-K
program available for families
with low income who could not
afford a private program; the
upcoming program will be open
to all.
According to the Rainbo"1


Center's Early Childhood Lead
Teacher Cindy DeValerio, the
'-program will-be offered in each
of Bradford CoUnty-'s
elementary schools, just as it
has been for the last three years.
The center is.the management
and support piece of all birth to
age-5 programs in the school
system, said DeValerio.
Individual providers are free
to designate program
scheduling; program structure
and class size, and are free to
designate whether or not to
provide transportation.


The center will be educating
tots in eight learning domains
that are required by the state:
physical health, approaches to
learning, social and emotional,
language and communication,
emergent literacy, cognitive
development, general
knowledge and motor
development.
According to their brochure,
the center's school readiness
program will also offer

Chamber board

may take a stand

on 301 bypass


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
Npe.aring. ,the. -,.1f-hour,
members of the North Florida
Regional Chamber of
Commerce's Board of
Govemnors-have-decided to. take
a stand on, the future of U.S.'
301, and the consensus of the
board was to support a bypass
around the city of Starke.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is set to
announce a decision later this
year on whether to construct an
urban or rural alternative in
response to ever-increasing
traffic on 301. The- rural-
alternative involves
constructing a two-lane bypass
west of Starke, while the urban
alternative would reroute 301 at
different pointsints in the city,
allowing the addition of two
more lanes.
Both. plans require
acquisition of a large amount of
right of way, but the urban plan
will, by far, have the largest
impact on existing businesses.
More than 50 will be affected, -
losing a portion or all of'their
property to make way for a
wider highway. The fact that
any property owner affected
will be financially reimbursed
through the eminent domain
process seemed of little comfort
to the small assemblage of
business owners who make up
the chamber board.
Jerome Johns of Community


State Bank said. a route around
the city is the only solution to
the traffic he observes from the
bank. The traffic, he said, is
killing the ciry. .
By contrast, he said the urban
alternative, with the number of
businesses it will impact and
the amount of time it will take
to coniistfift; is- something- that__
can't be lived with.
As bad as traffic may seem
now, the problem will only get
worse, Johns, predicted. DOT
has completed work to four-
lane 301 from Interstate 95 to
Callahan, and the next stretch to.
'be expanded will be from
Callahan to Baldwin, he said.
The expansion will just put that
much more trafficon 301, said
Johns.
"We can't sit back like we've
been the last three years.
Somebody's 'got to take the
lead, and the chamber of
commerce ought to take the
lead."
Phillip Johns, also of
Community State Bank,
predicted worse scenarios than
additional traffic if the urban
alternative is chosen, including
lost businesses, a higher speed
limit, restricted access to 301
except by way of S.R, 16 and
S.R. 100.
As for the scenario that others
fear-that a bypass around the
city would divert traffic .and
cripple businesses through the
loss of revenue--Doug Reddish

Lawtey, Hampton

schools excel in

FCAT science


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
Once again, Hampton
Elementary and Lawtey
Community School were the
onlk two schools in Bradford
County to exceed the state
average on the science portion
of the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
Hampton fifth-graders scored
highest in the district,
surpassing the state by 10
points with a score of 306.
Lawtey fifth-graders beat the
state by one point with a score
of 297.
Overall, the district's average


of 288 among fifth-grade
students was eight points
behind the state and 26 points
behind fifth-graders in Cla\
County. Bradford and Union
county students received the
same score this year, Fifth-
graders in Bradford did nine
points better this year than last
year's group.
Southside Elementary and
Starke Elementary were 13 and
14 points behind the state,
respectively, scoring\an average
283 and 282.
Only seven fifth-grade
students were tested this year in
science at Brooker ElementarN.

County considering pay


raises for upcoming year


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford County
Commission seems to be in a
generous mood as it approaches
budget planning for the next
year, indicating pay raises may
be in order for all of its
employees.
The discussion began with
Commissioner Eddie Lewis'
request that an employee of the
cooperative extension office be
granted a 50 cent raise now that
her probationary period is at an
end. The raise, which was
approved by the board, was
equivalent to a five percent
increase, higher than the three
percent normally approved.
When questioned by
Commissioner Ross Chandler
why more money was being
recommended, Lewis explained
the employee was exceptional,
and Chairman Doyle Thomas
said she was performing
additional duties outside of her-
job description.
Once that raise was approved,
Thomas then turned the
discussion to the county road
department, which he said
hadn't had a raise above the
annual three percent for nearly
four years.
Improvements have been
made and will continue to be
made in the department,
Thomas said, adding that
employee morale was high as a
result. While he wasn't asking
for immediate action to raise
those salaries, he did ask the
commission to take it under
consideration, mentioning that
it is often the road department
that is saddled with tasks above
and beyond grading roads.
From that request sprung a
suggestion that the commission
look at raising salaries
countywide. Lewis, citing first
the county's EMT staff, said the
commission needs to look at all
salaries during the budget
planning process.


"We need to recheck the
whole thing," Lewis said. "We
all need to sit down and look at
all of it."

Tiki bar turned
down
A commercial intensive
zoning request from Roy and
Donna Morgan that would have
allowed them to place a tiki bar
alongside their mud bogging
business, pending subsequent
approval of a special exception,
failed to pass muster with the
county commission.
While the zoning board
recommended a commercial
land use amendment at the
beginning of May, it also found
problems with the actual
rezoning request, with one
member citing a problem with
the request for the intensive
commercial category and
another objecting to the sale of
alcohol.
Commissioner John Cooper
pointed out that the board
should not be basing its
decision on the' proposed
development, but instead on the
appropriateness of commercial
rezoning in an area surrounded
by agricultural land.
"Regardless of what use is
planned, I have a little bit of a
problem with a one-acre
commercial- piece- of property-
just plopped down in the middle
of a huge agricultural area,"
Cooper said, adding-he-wouldt
-classify such a move as spot
zoning.
The nearest commercial
property was said to be more
than a mile away from the
Morgans, which lies north of
Lawtey on the west side of U.S.
301.
"I personally believe that 301
properties should be zoned
commercial zoning, but like Mr.
Cooper said, I have a problem
with just taking one acre out of
it and not zoning the whole,
trying to get the whole 11
acres," Lewis said.


Gavel moves again


Chandler said approving the
Morgans request would set a
precedent for landowners to
commercially rezone a small
portion of their large parcels.
One citizen spoke against the
rezoning application. David Lee
said he was a state law
enforcement officer who had
observed alcohol, and tobacco
use by minors at mud bogging
events, although no evidence
beyond his testimony was
offered. Roy Morgan said such
activity was kept in check
through inspections by the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco
and Firearms several times a
year.: .
The application was turned
down unanimously by the
commission. Cooper stated in
his motion that the proposed
change would constitute spot
zoning and was incompatible
with surrounding land uses.
Additionally, he said there was
no access to the proposed
commercial property by a
public road.
Courthouse suit
could be settled
Attorney Terry Brown told
the commission he could soon
be recommending the county
settle with the contractor suing
the county over money it claims
is owed for the courthouse
expansion project. '
If a settlement cannot be
reached, Brown said he would
recommend the county
authorize counsel to enter a
formal mediation process with
the contractor.
Brown said the outside
counsel retained recently
penned a letter to the contractor
stating that the firm was not
entitled to any additional money
because certain immunities
apply to the board -as a
government body that required
the contractor to pursue
particular steps for resolving the
matter that were not taken.
"We're hopeful that that will
dissuade them from pursuing
the litigation (and) would
anticipate that would cause
.them to be more reasonable in ,
their attitude and approach,"
Brown said. In short, Brown
humorously explained, the
contractor was told to go
"pound sand."
General Mechanical
Corporation completed the
courthouse expansion, but did
so behind schedule and over
budget.

Graduates demonstrate criminal minds

















A banquet was held at Western Steer on May 13 for graduates of the criminal
justice program at the Bradford-Union Vo-Tech. Present to receive their
certificates were (front row, l-r) Amber Crews, Rachel Green, Sandra Hamilton,
Amanda Hebert, Kenneth Calloway, (back row, I-r) Jake Prevatt, Aaron Dunfee,
Jason Pearson and Jordan Baker, along with instructor Jim Reddish. The
graduates lunched alongside representatives from many of the departments
they interned with, including Bradford Sheriff Bob Milner and Starke Police
Major Jeff Johnson. Crews said she was privileged to have interned at the
sheriff's office, where, among other things, she processed warrants and took
fingerprints. Graduates also interned in other areas, including the county clerk's
office and emergency medical services. Hamilton's experience in the public
defender's office has put her well on her way to achieving her goal of being a
lawyer, while Bacon was able to complete EMT classes in preparation for the
state exam. Vo-Tech Director Clarence DeSue said he was proud of those who
finished the program and wished them continuing success.

Oody suggested a survey be
conducted. Chamber CEO Ron
Lilly said it would take a week
to survey the businesses
potentially affected by the
urbjn .alternative, but the
chamber needs to decide what
inrormiaton to compile to
eduajte those business owners
on the issue.
Che'. rolet's Bill Adams
questioned how many
businesse- could actually prefer
the urban alternative and its
consequences. Lilly said a past
surge\ even with limited
response showed that only two
butine:ses said they would
close completely and not
relocate The others indicated
-the-.-vuld-relocate. -
"'le been in the majority of
these businesses right here, and
the.N're all for relocating
because they see the
opportunities that are presented
w'ith j new facility or
whatever...," Lilly began to
say, before Jerome Johns cut
him off by saying he didn't
want his business ruined.
Lilly later said it was the
opinion of the chamber's
attorney that the bylaws require
that the membership be polled
before the board' takes a
position. Others disagreed with
that interpretation of the
bylaws.
Jerome Johns moved that a
committee be formed to draft a
resolution stating the position.
Additional discussion amended
the motion, directing the
committee to look at a survey
for business owners as well.
Hearing the board's vote, the
Department of Corrections'
Brad Carter,' as acting chair,
formed a committee that
included Jerome Johns,
Reddish, Roberts, Miller and
Dean Weaver. Once the
resolution is passed, the
chamber will approach the city
and county for support.
But Miller said he didn't
simply want the city and county
to come out in favor of a
bypass. Other traffic solutions
need to be implemented
between now and the time a
bypass is constructed, he said.
"If they say, 'Yeah, we're all
for a bypass,' and that's all the
hell they've done between-now
-and 10 years from now, we
cannot continue to exist with
40,000 and 50,000 cars and
have any quality of existence in
the city of Starke," Miller said

so no score was tabulated by the
state.
Lawtey Community School
exceeded the state average
twice this year. Its eighth-
graders scored 298 points on
average, seven points more than
the state average of 291.
Eighth-graders at Bradford
Middle School were seven
points behind the state. They
averaged 284 points on FCAT
science.
That brought the district
average to 284, also seven
--points behind-the--s-atet- 22-
points behind Clay ,County and
18 points behind Union County.
Passing the FCAT science
exam is not a graduation
requirement, but in two years it
will be. This year, the test was
offered to llt"-graders instead
of 10th-graders as it .will be
when a passing score will be
required to graduate. Taking the
test in the 11th-grade allows
students more exposure to the
scientific principles included in
the test, particularly chemistry.

This year, Bradford High
School's 1 lt"-graders received
,an average score of 286, better
than last year but still seven
points behind the state.,
Eleventh-graders scored 293 in
Clay and 287 in Union.
While the Clay County,
school district exceeded the.
state at every grade level taking
the FCAT science test,
Bradford, as a district, did not'
accomplish that even once.,
Union County did, but its
eighth-graders were the only
group to do so.
Bradford did show
improvement, however. The
average scores at each grade
level were better than last year.

New store in Starke is music to people's ears


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
John McMillan thinks back to
the time when he was a student
at Bradford High School and
how students who played
musical instruments or who
were studying music had to
usually go out of town to buy
anything they needed.
Musicians in Bradford
County and the surrounding.
area now have an option closer
to home after Matt Stucky
opened North Florida Music


and Sound in November 2004.
"This is excellent," said
McMillan, who is currently
teaching guitar lessons at the
store.
Stucky, a 1995 BHS
graduate, worked previously in
a music store in Lake City. A
lot of the customers he saw
there were from Bradford
County. Many of those
customers asked Stucky when
he was going to open a music
store in Starke.
The notion of doing so finally
struck a chord with Stucky.


Matt Stucky, a 1995 Bradford High School graudate, is-
the owner of North Florida Music andriSound in Starke.

"That's basically how it
happened," he said. "It was just
a lot of people asking me and,
finally, I felt like the timing was
right and the opportunity was
there to do that."
Stucky admits he was a little
hesitant about opening a store g4 *B -
in Starke, saying that many
-people who live in Starke and .
Bradford County work out of
the area and, consequently, do
their shopping out of the area.
"There was a little bit of a
concern that we just may not
have the clientele we would '-'"

Stucky said. "Nothing's been t. "
further from the truth." .
" The lessons that have been
offered at the store since,
January have been. a big draw
so far. Approximately 75
students are currently taking
lessons.
"The interest has been
phenomenal," McMillan said.
"This is a great town to do it in.

there's a lot of talent packed in

Purple Day is Friday

at Bradford ARC


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer
On Friday, June 3, from 10
a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the ARC of
Bradford County in Starke will
be holding its annual Purple
Day event, which honors
individuals they serve.

At least 100 people are
expected to be at the upbeat
event, where each of ARC's
consumers will receive a
certificate of appreciation.
Various games and activities
will be in swing that day; a cake
walk, bingo with prizes,
karaoke and basketball are
scheduled for all to enjoy.

Program Manager Johnnie
Mae Mosley and delivery driver
Tracey Kepler explained what
Purple Day is all about as well
as the factory work that spins
and sparks within the seemingly
quiet building set back just a tad
from the main road on Water


Street.
Held exclusively for family
and friends of ARC's own
consumers, the tradition dates
back to 1977. It is held on the
first Friday of every June.
Originally called Consumer
Appreciation Day, it is
nowadays called Purple Day,
with purple being the color
chosen to symbolise
appreciation to the consumers.
ARC currently has under its
roof about 100 consumers, the
individuals who organize;
produce and prepare steel and
wood items for industry. From .
building survey stakes and
pallets, to cutting and
distributing rebar and selling
concrete monuments, the
factory is busy.
Their buyers include
Pipeline, Ray Dougherty, Pat
Welch and REDD Team
manufacturing, for which they
package and assemble building
components. I

Stucky received an AA
degree from Lake City
Community College, then
transferred to the University of
Florida to study music
education. It was his intent to
become either a high school
choral director or a church
music leader.
That never happened. Stucky
never earned a degree at UF,
where he found the music he
was studying was stylistically
different, from what he
enjoyed-gospel and jazz.
Also, Stucky had the
opportunity to serve as an
interim minister of music for a
year while he was working at
the music store in Lake City.
He said that was an eye-

the change in schools ultimately
made him a better student. At
Suwannee High School, which


did not have a music program
like BHS, Stucky said he
maintained a 2.5 grade-point

at BHS, Stucky's GPA never
dropped below 3.5.
The BHS .chorus program
gave Stucky something to
participate in and,
consequently, made school fun.

Take time to remember


Memorial Day is just behind us,
and this year especially, we should
set aside some time to reflect on
the debt we owe Americans that
fell in battle to secure our liberty
and-freedom. Even as this article
was being written, young men and
women offered their lives on the
field of battle ,while we pursued
daily routines.
Unlike the years of World War II
when our nation was at war, our
military services are at war but the
nation remains on a peacetime
basis. Where are the blackouts,
the scarcity of goods, the
rationing of gas and commodities,
the call-up of young men and
women?
When American troops are
committed to battle, the nation
should go on a "war-time"
footing, with each of us sharing in
the conflict in some small way. It
isn't fair for a minuscule minority
of young men and women to carry
the load while the vast majority is
concerned only -with daily
routines.
In the war years of 1860-65, the
nation was engaged in a civil war,
and no one was exempt from the
hardships and agony generated by
the struggle. People at home, in
both the North and -the South,
suffered along with their soldier
sons and daughters in being
frightened, cold and hungry, and,
with the lack of communication,
wondering if their child-warrior
was dead or alive. That war
exacted a terrible toll on the
nation, but from the ordeal came
the greatest nation the world has
ever known.
.But even in that ;hatefilled eg,.
there were those who 'could see
th'e' bigger picture and find
forgiveness in their hearts. Before
the war ended, women on both
sides of the Mason-Dixon Line
were decorating the graves of
fallen military men and women
without regard to rank or origin,
only that he or she had given his
or her life for the cause. The
beginning of Memorial Day was a


Ib


grassroots movement, expanded
to memorialize all men and
women killed in-battle,-or dead as
-results of battle wounds.
The first official Memorial Day
was established when Gen. John-
Logan, commander of the Grand
Army of the Republic, issued
order number 11 on May 8, 1868,
declaring May 30, 1868 to be
Memorial Day, set'aside to honor
the war dead. Although some
states have set aside other days for
Memorial Day, the national
holiday is observed the last
Monday in May, providing a
three-day holiday for workers.
The extended holiday has
produced a lackadaisical attitude,
toward the original intent of
remembering war veterans,
resulting in a congressional bill to
return the holiday to May 30,
rather than the last Monday in the
month. The bill is languishing in
Congress..
Starke has held a Memorial Day
service each year at Charles
Schaefer Veterans' Memorial Park
on East Call Street with limited,
success in getting public support.
Although it features -a military
program, with a military speaker,
the number of citizens attending
leaves much to be desired.
Eliminating the long weekend,,
in which people take extended
trips out of town, may improve
attendance at memorial
celebrations. It isn't that we don't
appreciate our military, because
Americans always support the
services, although they may not
support the war itself.
There's a shooting war going on
-an&d ome 1,.700 Americans .have
gi\en their lives in a far-away
land and thousands have been
injured, many seriously, while we
go about routine lives. Whatever
you're doing, take a break and
think upon the blessings we enjoy,
paid for by mostly young people
in service to their country.

Dear Editor: '
I grew up in New York.
When m) school system got

the subject of the dark ages and

The truth is the Christian

Thankfully my school never

Consumers

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers
to take advantage of a law that
requires major credit reporting
services to provide free credit
reports.
The amendment to the Fair
Credit Reporting Act was
designed to provide consumers
who cannot or will not pay a
fee for the reports to access
them for free once a year. The
law has been phased-in across
the United States, and Florida
residents will be. eligible for
the documents on June 1.
"Reviewing your credit
history is one of the most
important steps people can take
to avoid identity theft,"
Bronson said. "If consumers
find out that someone is using
their identity or credit cards
without their knowledge, the
credit reports may be the first
hint they have that there is a
problem."
A credit report contains
information about a consumer's
credit history, including a
listing of all credit cards,
whether bills have been paid on
time, and whether the
consumer has been sued,
arrested or filed for bankruptcy.

Stabbing
victim, stable
The victim of a stabbing just
after midnight Sunday remains
hospitalized in stable
condition.
A night of celebrating the
release from custody of
William Michael Goode ended
up with him being flown to
Shands at the University.
Drinking, drugs and questions
about activities during his
absence led to Goode and Mary
Lillian May becoming
involved in a shoving-pushing
confrontation, according to
Investigator M.L. McKenzie.
At some point May displayed a
knife and threatened to cut
Goode, according to
Investigator McKenzie.
May carried out her threat and
stabbed Goode in the chest,
Investigator McKenzie said.
Goode, apparently in shock,
went outside then returned to
find a 15-year-old juvenile
threatening to stab him again if
he did not leave, Investigator
McKenzie said. Goode refused
to leave the residence and was
stabbed by the juvenile three or
four times.
Goode fell into a chair where
another juvenile joined the 15-
year-old and punched and kicked
Goode even after Goode became
unconscious. They also cut
him on the top of the head,
Investigator McKenzie said.
Goode was placed on 'life
support at Shands until
Monday when he underwent
surgery for the removal of his
spleen. His condition was
listed as stable as of press
time.
May, 34, and the juveniles
were charged with aggravated
battery. May's bond was set at
$150,000.
The charge may be upgraded
to attempted murder pending
results of further investigation
and the findings of The Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, which processed
the crime scene, Investigator
McKenzie said.
May has no criminal record
in Florida but has an extensive
criminal history in Wa.,hington
state, Investigator McKenzie
said.

Buckle Up in
Your Truck
Pickup tuck drivers and their
passengers are among those
Americans least likely to
regularly wear their safety belts
according to the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA).
Chief Gordon Smith and his
officers are joining with
NHTSA, the Florida
Department of Transportation
and law enforcement leaders
across an eight-state region in
the Southeastern U.S. to
launch an aggressive new
public awareness initiative
called "Buckle Up in Your
Truck."
The goal is simple, to save
more lives on our roadways by
convincing pickup truck drivers
and their passengers to always
buckle up.
Reminding pickup truck
occupants to always wear their
safety belts is important
because that is the single best
defense .against ejection in a
crash. In fact, that simple step
of always buckling up will
increase your odds of survival
by 70 to 80 percent if you have
a rollover crash.
Whil'd rollovers can happen
in any .kind of passenger,
vehicle, pickup trucks are twice
as likely to rollover as cars,
because- they have a higher
center of gravity. And even
more alarming, the ejection
rate for occupants of light
trucks in a crash is nearly
double the rate for those in
cars. Much of that comes from
folks not wearing their safety
belts.
In .2003., of the pickup truck
drivers killed in traffic crashes,
70 percent were not buckled
up.
Part of the Click It or Ticket
national' safety : belt
enforcement, the Buckle Up in
Your Truck campaign
continues.

Nursing homes receive 'Joyful Noise'


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was birthday girl Classie
DeSue's and Marilyn Buehne's
lucky day when the Joyful
Noisemakers (JN) stopped by
on May 31 to pour soulful
sounds into their room at the
Bradford Terrace Nursing
Home in Starke.


Surrounded by 11'
harmonious voices, an acoustic
guitar, a mandolin and a

leading the vocals, with- "I- Got-


A Feeling Everything's Gonna
Be Alright" that Foster added,
"Honey, you've got to have

rendition of "It Had To Be

Acoustic guitarist Anne
Miller said of the anticipation
the group has received from
happy audiences that residents
sometimes say, "It's Tuesday,
we were wondering where you
were." She explained that doing
this has changed her impression
of nursing homes. She cited the
amazement of witnessing

Local youth reads winning essay at Starke ceremony


As a part of the Memorial
Day ceremony held at
the Charlie Schaefer Veteran's
Memorial Park in Starke,
Abigail Crawford read her
essay, "Celebrating America's
Veterans." which received first
place in the 2004-05 Voice of
Democracy Contest Audio
Essay Contest.
The essay contest, sponsored
locally by Bradford County
VFW Post 1016 and its Ladies
Auxiliary, is part of a national
VFW effort to foster patriotism,
citizenship and a sense of civic
responsibility among young


people. The Voice of
Democracy contest gives ninth-
through I12t-grade students a
chance to voice their ideas,
opinions and thoughts on the
selected theme in a three- to
five-minute recorded essay.
Crawford is a 17-year old
homeschool student and the
daughter of Donnie and Denise
Crawford. She received a $100
U.S. savings bond and a chance
to compete at the district, state
and national level for valuable
awards.
Crawford's essay is as
follows:


"Hey, Mom, do you care if I
hang out with Anna in the
morning since I don't have
school. We thought we'd see if
Natalie wants to go skating and
to the mall. You know she's
been feeling sad since her dad
got stationed in Iraq. And Mom,
you know my new friend
Rachel? She invited me to
attend synagogue with her
family. Won't that be cool! I've
never been to a Jewish
synagogue before."
"Did you forget that you
agreed to volunteer at the
Memorial Day celebration?"


my mother reminded me.
"Oh Mom, I forgot all about
that! I was really looking
forward to spending the day
with friends!"
"You will be through in time
to go to synagogue with Rachel
tomorrow evening, but you.
have already made an
obligation to the VFW Post for
in the morning."
I reluctantly called Anna and
told her I would not be able to
go with her.
"Why not," she wondered?

Veterans, troops march on Monday


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer

Young and old alike showed
up in uniform early Monday
morning in the parking lot of
Starke City Hall to honor the
brave who have defended the
country on this past Memorial
Day.
There was City of Starke
Mayor Carolyn B. Spooner,
Alachua County Sheriff
Stephen M. "Steve" Oelrich,
local Marine Joseph Erdman


and the Bradford High School
Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corps. (JROTC).
Other attendees and
presenters included Bradford
Memorial Post 1016 Veterans
of Foreign Wars and their
Ladies Auxiliary, Jr. Vice
Commander Christine Peace
and her husband, Dave, who is
the 1033 Program Coordinator.
Also on hand were folks such
as Sr. Vice President of
Veterans of Foreign Wars Artie
Rix, American Legion Post 56
historian Bill Scoggins, City of
Starke Commissioner Don


Tilley and Ladies Auxiliary
member Helen Harrington.
The performers and attendees
of .the day walked the
processional down Call Street,
where they then conducted a
ceremony to honor the fallen
heroes in Charlie Schaefer
Veterans' Memorial Park.
Troop 70 Scoutmaster Kevin
Adkins was there along with his
wife and assistant scout master,
Betty Adkins. Boy Scout Troop
70 performed the wreath laying
ceremony, where floral
wreathes of red, white and blue
were firmly pressed into the


grass one by one by each of the
scouts.
JROTC members who
conducted the lowering of flag
ceremony included Brandon
Coleman, Chris Olive, David
Scully, Rachael Snyder and
Karaleah Porter.
The National Anthem was
sung by last-minute fill-in
vocalist Denise Crawford, who
is the mother of Abigail
Crawford, the Voice of
Democracy essay contest
winner who would later move
the audience of several dozen
with her speech (see related
story).
Crawford's spoken essay left
every listener in attendance
with a lasting impression; "Be
careful what you wish for," she
repeated throughout the speech,
ending with the statement, "I
wish everyone was celebrating
our veterans."
Christine Peace said
Crawford's essay "reminds us
of where we could be if not for.
the heroes."
Sr. Patrol Leader Craig Leon
Guerrero, Boy Scouts Troop 70,
performed Taps on the trumpet.
Oelrich said in his speech that
when thinking of Memorial
D1ay, "two words come to mind:
memory and pride." He'spoke
of family and friends who
served in wars. He lightly joked
about having already filled the
flu shot requirement as a new
draftee after having already
been "shot" as a cop. "I'm
moved and touched by the
sacrifice of others," he said,
bringing applause in the park.

soldier that day.
"He commanded me to stop
and put my hands up," Kan
said. "However, my shaved
head and haggard appearance
indicated to him that I was not
an enemy.
"After several minutes of
questioning me, I told him that I
was a Jewish prisoner of the
local concentration camp,
whereupon he embraced me and
said the most wonderful words I
have ever heard-'You are free
now.'"I
Kan said he never got the


American's name. That soldier,
however, gave Kan something
he treasures to this day-an
Army-issued Mezuzah (Jewish
talisman) to wear around his
neck.
Towers spoke about Kan's
life following his liberation.
Kan went to Brussels and
became acquainted with an
American soldier from New
York who was returning to the
U.S. to be discharged. Kan
contacted an uncle, who moved
from German to New York in
1919, through the soldier. The
uncle later contacted Kan and,
after three years, Kan
immigrated to the U.S., settling
in Long Island, N.Y.
Kan now resides in Boynton
Beach.

Towers said he often
wondered over the years what
had become of the
concentration camp survivors
he and his unit liberated. Did
they survive for any .length of
time? Were they reunited with
surviving family members?
What was their lot in life?
Those were questions Towers
asked himself. He got the
answers to some of his
questions in April, when he met
Kan in Magdeburg during the
city's 60th anniversary
celebration of its liberation.
Towers was invited to speak at
the etent and he found himself
sharing a stage with Kan.
"Needless to say. this was a
verN emotional meeting of the
liberator and the liberated."
Towers said. "After 60 Nears.
we had come full circle."
Kan. during the Blanding
ceremony, could not thank
Towers and all veterans enough
for their efforts.
"You gave me back my
dignity\ and my honor." Kan
said. "'You restored my faith
and hope in the human race
again. You ga\e me back my
life. For that, I want to embrace
\ou all and thank you a million
times."
Kan. because of %what he %went
through. is considered a hero by
Towers, along with all
% eterans-li' ing and dead.
"Man\. man\ of our heroes
Jie;buried in many of. the
European and Pacific The'ilr
cemeteries, as well as the many
who were brought home for
burial in their local cemetery,"
Towers said. "They must never
be forgotten, but we must never
forget those survivors who
came home and get little or no
recognition, especially those
who were wounded mentally
and physically. They were
heroes, too."

Kan was not the only special


guest present during the Camp
Blanding ceremony. Rupert
Metzroth spoke of the honor of
being back at Camp Blanding,
though the first time he was
there was as a German prisoner
of war during World War II.
It was November 1944 when
Metzroth arrived at. Camp
Blanding as a "bewildered 18-
year-old youngster," he said.
Though he was a prisoner,
Metzroth said he realized
personal freedom for the first
time.
"We were treated like human
beings," Metzroth said. "Also,
for the first time in my military
life, I was not hungry, though I

had a little trouble with corn
flakes until I added milk and
sugar.
"The real nourishment for me
was reading newspapers,
magazines and books.
Fortunately, I learned English
in high school. Though limited
in vocabulary, I could immerse
myself into a new world--a
world that seemed little
restrained by government
regulation and propaganda.
POWs were spared daily
accounts of sacrifices and hero
worship.
"From then on, I was hooked
on reading. Thus-I coined the


expression, 'Camp Blanding,
my alma mater.'"
Metzroth, whose son served
as a U.S. Marine, said he hal
heard accounts of combat froni
soldiers on all sides and they ali
shared a common bond-they
all suffered the hardships that
come with war. That included
watching fellow soldiers-and
sometimes close friends-die. -
"We buried friend and foe,"
Metzroth said. "A small cross
or Star of David, or a down-
turned rifle topped by a helmet
marked the last resting place of
a fallen comrade. Let us never
forget them. May they all rest in
peace."

Rosiers take home 'Fantastic Foster Parent' award


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer

,Unaware that she and her
better half would take home the
Fantastic Foster Parent award at
the Partnership for Strong
Families' Foster Parent
Appreciation Day dinner, held
May 19 at the First Presbyterian
Church in Starke, Debbie
Rosier spoke of her journey and
shared her insight.
Rosier's journey began when
she took temporary custody of
her niece, Tammy. Then she
met Dwight, who handled the
situation so well that the two
were able to marry and keep the
knot tied for 10 years while
welcoming a flow of foster kids
into their home. Today the
proud couple from Lawtey is
still saying welcome.
When asked if her husband
had ever given her any friction
about marrying a woman who
not only already had a child, but
furthermore, a child that was
not biologically hers, she
confidently shook her head no,
with a smile. He was no
stranger to interesting turns in
the family.tree; Debbie's sister


is married to Dwight's brother.
The Rosiers have so far taken
75 to 100 foster kids under their
wings. "I enjoy giving them a
home...knowing that they at
least have a place to come to,"
said Debbie.
All of her own children have
always been foster children.


The'current lineup of little ones
in the Rosier home is as
follows: two 13-year-old boys
welcomed about five years ago
and an 11-year-old girl who is
turning out to be a tomboy.
Debbie, a cafeteria food
services manager for Bradford
County High School, and


Dwight, a stacker operator for
Gilman Building Products,
experience special joys. She
cited the memory of watching
her child "walk down the aisle
and get a diploma."
Perhaps some have
misconceptions about foster
parenting. While still single,
Debbie foster parented eight
kids, six of which were teens.
She jokingly recalled the
common sight of phones thrown
all over her teen-populated
home, including through the
walls.. But still, she has no
regrets.
Perhaps if there is a
misconception that foster kids
are out of control, then perhaps
the truth is that they are no
more out of control than the
next kid. Perhaps the sight of
phones tossed around a home is
an indication that there are
normal, happy teenagers living
in the home, and happy
teenagers like to talk. Debbie
smiled as she reminisced.
As far as the common notion
that adoption is costly, Rosier
had this to say: "If you're going
in- it for the money, you're
going in for the wrong
reason.. .if you're going in it for


the kids, you're going in it for
the right reason." She stated
that "you spend more than what
you are given," suggesting that
perhaps whatever funding the
foster parent initially perceived
as insufficient can soon pale in
comparison to the joy of
discovering that all the
sacrifices and stretches one had
prepared or even started to
make won't be necessary for
only one reason: "Kids are not
asking for a lot: they are asking
for love."
She believes low income
should not disqualify someone
from being a foster parent at the
get-go either, for people's
perceptions about their own
savings and budgeting can shift.
Debbie, like any foster
parent, knows that eventually
these kids will go back to their
biological parents. Her little
girl, who especially likes
baseball and basketball, may be


saying goodbye to be closer to
her biological family one day..
Debbie explained that most
kids want to go back to their
biological parents. The law
states that foster kids must be
returned to their biological
parents, but that cannot be done
in every case. When asked how
it feels to let go of one of her
foster children, she responded,
"You know you've done the
best you can do... given them
the values and morals and hope
they've learned."
When asked if there are traits
that all foster kids have in
common, Debbie responded in
saying the kids feel like they the
kids have done something
wrong and that foster parents
have to keep reminding them
that "it's not their (the kids')
fault."
The remarks she gets from
non-fostering parents are ones
of admiration.


Many speak on foster care program


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer

The individuals who play a
unique role with the Partnership
for Strong Families (PSF)
present a spectrum of caring
and motivated mdriduals. On
May 19 the experts of foster
care appeared at the Foster
Parent Appreciation Day dinner.
at the First Presbyterian Church
in Starke to promote foster
parenting and.. share in the
honoring of hard work done
well.
Penny and Dozie Sirmones
were awarded for being the
most recent couple to be foster
parents with PSF. In the course
of a single year, the couple has
foster parented an army of
seven kids.. Although not
present. staff of the Starke
Service Center deemed their
nomniWgWn pEySJrt,.
Also on hand were James
Simh'f .d -Lf~ mrnily care
counselor and Lakeisha Austin,
family care counselor. Their
enthusiasm was evident.
Simon, who also addressed
the families, explained that.he
found his path to PSF by
beginning .with an involvement
in church and working with
children. "It was a great fit" he
beamed, eplaining that the
"most important thing (about
his experience with PSF is)
being able to protect a child and
place a child in a home." He
continued: "Being able to watch
a child develop and change
from very negative behavior
such as biting, fighting and
kicking, and do a 180-degree
turnaround, hugging, kissing,
and showing affection" is What
it's all about.
He spoke,'. of big
improvements seen in grades,
social skills and the joys of
watching a kid 'blossom,
comparing a child to a new
flower. He emphasized that it
.takes time to develop a
character. "That's a reward we
receive in our work," he
proudly said of the struggling
kids PSF helps.
Guest Speaker Dusty Pye's
layman's language insight and
utterly honest confessions from,


the frontlines of social work
brought smiles and applause
across the room.
The "If I could just get a job
working for all these kids"
mindset he once had to admit to
only worked for about five
days, he joked. "If you're in the
foster care business, it takes
more than love." It may also
take a dream or passion, he
emphasized.
Pye reminded the foster
parents that failing and, making
mistakes is not the end: "And
sometimes when you feel like
you don't love it," that's okay,

interviews troubled parents all
the time, and even when he
doesn't like what a parent is
doing, he has to help them
any\vway. jn working toward
healing a strained situation in
the home. "We have to
understand birth parents," he
explained.
In the "young people's
business" since age [8, Pye
spoke of the, stress involved
when a foster child pays a visit
to the biological parent. Visits
are, hard (on the foster-child and
both sets of 'parents). Upon
return to the foster home, a
foster kid can ."act up."
Pye closed his speech with a
memorable statement: "We
can't. change the world, but we
can do our best one life at a
time."

that foster parents know that no

never, ever be allowed to adopt
that child. And, still, foster.

give it their best shot anyway.

"We've taken over...The

Saltwater

variety

By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors Editor

In addition to spending as
much time as possible-
freshwater fishing for bass,
bream or catfish, or ,hunting in
season, many of our readers and
outdoorsmen and women also
like to saltwater fish, catching
anything from trout, reds and
flounder over at Steinhatchee to
catching blues or Spanish
mackerel at the Mayport or
Matanzas inlets.
Saltwater angling offers a
great variety of fish to catch and
many opportunities for outdoor
fun and adventure this summer.

Variety
There is an almost endless
variety of species of saltwater
fish in Florida waters and many
of these saltwater varieties are
easily caught in the brackish


N


water of our rivers and creeks,
as well as in the ocean and in
the gulf.
Someone has said that in
saltwater "you just never know
what you are going to catch"
because the variety is so great.
In the rivers and Intracoastal
Waterway and canals, you
might pull up any of several
dozen species, including
speckled trout, reds, flounder,
croaker, grunts pigfishh),
sheepshead, black drum,- angel
fish, spadefish, spots, an
occasional striped bass and, of
course, the ever-present bait-

FWC pushes
three main
messages for
boat safety
campaign
The Florida Fish arid
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is keying
in on three core messages as its
Division of Law Enforcement
gears up for a busy summer
boftifg'" season: -stay alert,
wear your life jacket and don't
drink and operate a boat. The
agency says keeping these
messages in mind can
dramatically decrease your
chances of getting into an
accident and increase your
chances of survival if you do.
"In 2003, Florida led the
nation' in boating deaths with
64, and last year we had 68.
We hope to reverse that trend
by alerting boaters to the
biggest dangers," said Capt.
Richard Moore, Florida's
boating law administrator.
Moore said the agency honed
in on the three safety messages
after analyzing Florida's boat
accident data.
Collisions with vessels or.
fixed objects are the two
leading types of accidents.
Last year, they accounted for
nearly half of the mishaps on
Florida's waterways. Moore
said this reflects the importance
of staying- alert to everything
going on around you. .
"One of the biggest
misconceptions. about boating
accidents is that they are'caused
by extremely reckless behavior,
but when you look at the
numbers you see that it comes
down to people not paying
attention or making one
careless move," Moore said.
"We want people to go out and
have fun, but also to
understand the minute they lose
focus something could
happen."
Moore said alcohol and not
wearing a life jacket are the
two major contributors to fatal


accidents. In 2004, alcohol use
was the primary cause of 21
percent of boating deaths.
Almost one-third of the fatal
accidents were classified as
"falls overboard," and drowning
was the cause of death in 65
percent of those fatalities. -
"We don't know the exact
number of people who would
have survived these accidents
had they been wearing a life
jacket, but there is no doubt
that most might still be alive
today if they had worn a life
jacket, Moore sad. ,

The team of Neil Crawford, Michael Rothwell, Roger Rothwell and Kenny Gibbs (from
left) had a great day catching this nice assortment of saltwater beauties. A great
variety and good eating too!


FINS
.Continued from p. 6C


stealing champion of all
time-the pinfish (Sailor's
Choice.)
The inshore saltwater
fisherman may also catch the
throwbacks-saltwater catfish,
eels, stingrays, crabs, jacks and
the saltwater tap-dancing
artist-the ladyfish. These


ladyfish usually put on a pretty
good show, leaping and
jumping. Occasionally they can
actually turn a complete flip in
their acrobatic display.


Intracoastal
Waterway
As we move on out the rivers
and leave the brackish water
behind, other saltwater fish start
showing up at the inlets,
especially two real good


fighters-the bluefish and the
Spanish mackerel.
Bluefish, in particular, are
fun to catch, as they are
aggressive, strong and also have
a very sharp set of teeth. If you
have ever caught many of these,
you have probably been nicked
or cut (and maybe bitten) by
these teeth. These fish fight
every inch of the way in and a
large one can sound like .he's
trying to knock a hole in the
bottom of your boat after you


get him in.
Be careful with bluefish.

Atlantic or Gulf?
From our area, we can be at
or even in either the Atlantic
Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico in
under two hours. Florida is
often called "The Fishing
Capital of the World" because,
as a peninsula, we have two
oceans to fish in, as well as the
thousands of combined miles of
rivers, streams, ponds and lakes
in our state.

Bait
Most saltwater fishermen use
shrimp in the rivers and.
waterways-fresh shrimp, cut
and peeled, is a terrific all-
around bait.-
If a particular fish is targeted,
the angler can get specific, such
as fiddler crabs for sheepshead,
an active live shrimp for trout
or a mud minnow for flounder.
And the fun is unlimited when
the fisherman decides to use
artificial lures only. There is no
bait to mess with and, when
catching a fighting, jumping,
schooling fish, it is easier to just
take the fish off the lure, put
him in the live well or cooler,
and re-cast.
Quick, clean action while the
opportunity lasts.


The hand towel
A real handy piece of helpful
equipment is the small hand
towel. This is a real life saver
when you are in a flurry of
fishing activity and you have
bait residue on your hand or
when you get "slimed" by a
fish. Keep the towel. on your
non-dominant side, in a belt.
loop or such, and use it to


quickly clean off your hands so
you can stay on top of the
action. Don't miss 'hat
schooling fish.
. OK, summer is here. So are
the fish. Let's grab our gear and
head out for some saltwater
fishing. "Ya just never know
what you're gonna catch!"

Bald Eagle bass
tourney results...
Richie Barnes and Paul
Akridge took first place with a
total catch of 15.03 pounds
during the eighth week of the
Bald Eagle bass tournament,
which had a total of 47 boats
out on Santa Fe Lake last week.
In second place was the team
of Donn House and Keith
Chapman with 11.68 pounds
and in third was Shane and
Stanley O'Neil with 9.06
pounds. Fourth place went toc
Robert Hall and Scotty Anders
at 7.43 pounds.
This week's largest fish was a
4.88-pounder, caught by Barnes
and Akridge.
The 20-week tournament
takes place every Wednesday.
To qualify for the overall prize,
you must fish at least half of the
tournament, so tfere is still
plenty of time to get in. See
Joey at Bald Eagle Bait &
Tackle in Keystone for further
details.
