Spirit on parade


Starke, developer


agree on housing


project

300-plus acres annexed into the city


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
Haggling over a couple of clauses
in a proposed development
agreement nearly derailed the
annexation of more than 300 acres at
the northwest city limits of Starke,
but last minute modifications were
enough to win approval of the
agreement and the city expansion.
Along with the city's growth by
342-plus acres through passage of the
annexation ordinance, a number
based on a revised legal description,
the development agreement provides
for developer .Cornerstone
Communities Inc. to extend city
water and sewer lines to the property,
which is located across from Starke
Elementary on C.R. 229. It also
expresses the developer's willingness
to request that Starke be the exclusive
electric provider, although the city
will absorb the cost of relocating the
aboveground power lines


underground.
e development-agreement had
to be in place before the annexation
could be finalized, and the
annexation was necessary for the
property to be submitted for a land
use change this month. This put the
squeeze on city commissioners since
the development agreement had only
been finalized hours before the Dec.
6 meeting and there were questions
about what they were being asked to
commit to.
Commissioners Tommy Chastain
and Wilbur Waters, in particular
could not agree to credit Cornerstone
toward future impact fees in
exchange for offsite traffic
improvements relating the project.
Cornerstone was willing to reimburse
the city for installing a turn lane, but
in exchange wanted to be credited up
to $80,000 on impact fees.

School board joins discussion

of growth management


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
With both the city of Starke and
Bradford County looking to award a
contract for an impact fee study at the
end of January to help fund
requirements set forth by the state's
new growth management legislation,
the school board has begun looking at
how it will pay for future growth.
-While the city and county
commissions hope to have a schedule
of impact fees in place in June that
could cover everything from
emergency services to utilities, the
school board will explore impact fees
on new development to pay for
school and classroom construction.
Cities and counties are being
required to work more closely than
ever on planning for the future under
the growth management reform
legislation passed earlier this .year.
Not only are cities and counties
required to include elements in their
comprehensive plans to show how
they will address and pay for their
own capital improvements, a
facilities element for public schools
must also be added to the plans.
Impact fees will play a major role


in ensuring that new developments,
whether they be single family homes,
small businesses, large commercial
shopping centers or industrial and
manufacturing companies, pay for the
services they require and their impact
on the community.
This will be particularly important
for the state's 67 school .systems as
Public Education Capital' Outlay, or
PECO, funds are expected to
disappear by 2008, as legislators are
diverting those funds, derived from
the Gross Receipts Utilities Tax,
elsewhere. In addition, school
districts can only levy 2 mills in
property taxes to fund school
facilities. While in a county like
Nassau that 'would equate to $10
million, in Bradford it's around $1
million, according to school Finance
Director Julee Tinsler.
The North East Florida
Educational Consortium may step in
to help school districts hire
coordinators for growth management,
with two to three districts sharing the
cost and expertise of the same
coordinator.
During a workshop on Dec. 12,
Assistant Superintendent Rick Ezzell
said those coordinators would be part


of an advisory committee on facility
growth planning that NEFEC is
establishing to serve its districts.
Transportation Director Otha Miller
has agreed to serve on that
committee.
The school board will have to work
closely with the cities and county to
agree on concurrency, which
essentially. means :that new
development cannot go forward if
infrastructure is not there to support
it. .
Ezzell said the board can study and
help put in place an impact fee to help
pay for growth in the schools, but it
will also be involved in zoning
matters affecting schools. If a 500-
home development is being built, the
school has to have the capacity to
serve the families living in that
development.
As City Manager Ken Sauer
explained, user fees from utilities, for
example, can pay for the operation of
a system, but not necessarily its
growth. That's where .impact fees
come in.

The third town hall meeting was
held Tuesday, Dec. 6, at the Bradford
High School auditorium to update the
community about the solutions the
school administration has taken as a
result of concerns raised at the Nov.
17 town hall meeting.
Superintendent Harry Hatcher first
addressed the audience, which was
not as large as the first meeting.
Hatcher announced the school
board meetings would now be held at
6:30 p.,m. instead of 5 p.m. so more
parents could attend. The Dec. 12
meeting was the first to be held at this
time.
Hatcher said the school
administration would continue to
work hard on making strong
parameters for discipline 'and the
code of conduct. Through the
sheriff's office, students will now
undergo random checks with a
handheld metal detector.
He also made a promise to parents
to return phone calls and improve


overall communication.
Several members of the audience
'called on the community to get more
involved in volunteering at the
school.
Unlike some parents thought, if a
volunteer is under the direct
supervision of a school employee,
they do not have -to pay $60 for a
background check and fingerprinting,
said Assistant Superintendent Rick'
Ezzell.
However, if a volunteer wants to
.go into the school and work by
themselves with students, a
background check is required as part
of the new Jessica Lunsford Act.
"We can't lose our volunteers over
$60," said Hatcher, who suggested in
the future that maybe businesses
.could donate the cost of the
background checks to the schools,
Concerns were still raised about
parent/teacher conferences. Parent
Staci Jackson said some teachers do
not even bother t6 show up.

Bikefest coming in June


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford County Fairgrounds
in Starke will host a Bikefest in June
now that the city commission has
granted a license for the event.
Organizer Johnny Waterson
promised law enforcement and
emergency medical supervision, to
ease Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner's concerns over beer sales..
The fair association previously
signed off on the event after a similar
round of assurances.
Waterson described Bikefest as a
fun, family event. Many cities host
such events, sometimes in the open
streets, he said. This Bikefest will be
contained within the fairgrounds,
with some vendors and visitors
camping on site.
"We understand some' of the
concerns that may exist because of
the beer, however, we want to offer
you the assurance that this will be a
well-planned, organized, insured and
advertised event," Waterson said.
Uniformed officers will. monitor
the exits for individuals who might be
too drunk to drive, and all of the


profit, from the sale of beer will be
donated to a local charity. The
economic impact of more than a
hundred vendors, exhibitors and
potentially 10,000-20,000 visitors
from all over the Southeast could be
"huge" for the city, said Waterson.
"I think it's a great opportunity for
our community to bring in something
from the outside, bring in something
else for our community and bring
something in for our local motels,
hotels and restaurants," said Police
Chief Gordon Smith, adding that he
expected to be busy but not bothered
by troublemakers at Bikefest,
Organizers are also lining up
entertainment for the car and bike
show, including confirmed Southern
rock band Molly Hatchet.
The car and bike show sponsored
by J&J Motorcycle Accessories and,
Madison Street Station will draw
vendors and buyers to the three-day
event, wpich will be. the subject of a
television special televised statewide.
The license received unanimous
support. License fees were to be
negotiated at a later date between the,
mayor, city clerk and event
organizers.

New River landfill growth on track


S By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer


Southside Elementary School Assistant
Principal Steve Hoard shows Ken Weaver
information on extracurricular activities at a
meeting of the community task force on
Monday, Dec. 12, in the school board meeting
room. In the background, another part of the
task force discusses curriculum.


MEET
Continued from p. 1A'

"If. they can give my child
an F on his report card, they
can show up at a
parent/teacher conference and
tell me why," saidJackson..
Hatcher responded--f iat the
administration would try to
-address problems with specific
teachers, but he did not think
the school board would make
conferences mandatory for
teachers.
Parent Sharon Akins, who
has stated at past meetings her
son was assaulted at the
middle school, said she wants
her situation to be an.example4-'
for the school system. She said
.her last week had been spent in
meetings with the State
Attorney's Office.
Akins said if she had felt
more confident about what the
school was doing in her son's
case or if there was some sort
of mediation between both
parties, she would hot have to
take legal action.
All parents should be made
aware of victims' rights and
the discipline the offender
received, said Akins.
Hatcher thanked everyone
for their comments and said
everyone has to embrace the
problems with the school
systeif i order to make it
better.
"People feel like Bradford
County will not respond to
them, that the ball has been
dropped if no one has returned
calls," said Hatcher. "That's
not us."
While resolutions were
given for several problems the-
school system has,' Hatcher


hopes to continue the dialog
between the community and
the school in order to fix
ongoing problems.
Community task
force meets
One step toward continuing
dialog between the school and
the community was the first
meeting of the task force made
up of parents, grandparents,
teachers, school staff and
business leaders. This first
meeting was held after the
Dec. 6 town hall meeting.
The task force was split into
groups that would .address
finances, growth management,
school safety and discipline,--
.curriculum, communication,
extracurricular activities and
forming a parent/teacher
organization.
"The committee is for
everybody's opinion," said
Hatcher, who invited input
from all who attended.
"I value your opinions," he
said. "I may not always agree
with them, but I value your
opinions."
At their next meeting on
Monday, Dec. 12, the task
force was organized into the
different groups. Each group
had a team leader and a person
from the school system, as
well as community members.
The groups discussed their
initial concerns, and.. ideas
about their topics, such as the
need for more school
counselors and communication
between the schools and
parents.
If you are interested in
becoming a part of the task
force, contact the Bradford
County School Board at (904)

most revenue to the landfill's $7.3 million
budget.
Landfill now monitoring
air quality
Frank Darabi, the landfill's engineer,
has submitted the cost estimates
associated with the first year of ongoing
assistance with air quality sampling and
analysis. The volume of waste disposed of
in the landfill has grown to the point
where New River must now comply with
the Title V air quality requirements that
each state had to establish for sources of
air pollution as part of the Clean Air Act.
It was Darabi and his firm that worked
on the landfill's Title V permit application.
The permit specifies emission limits and
the emission testing and monitoring
requirements applicable at New River.
These requirements are the primary means'
for demonstrating 'compliance with the
emission limits, according to DEP's Web
site. .
Darabi estimates the first year's cost at
$78,290, which primarily represents the
labor costs involved as he and five staff
members review the air quality data
collected by the landfill and University of
Florida, keep records of those analyses,
prepare the required annual report and
offer operational assistance in the field.
After discussion about seeking quotes.

AGREE
Continued from p. 1A
After attorneys for the city
and the developer left the
meeting to work on a
compromise, the clause was
completely removed from the
document. .....
In exchange, the city agreed
that while properties -between
the end of the city's current
water and sewer lines and the
new development could be
served, Cornerstone will not be
responsible for funding any
improvements beyond those
needed to serve its
development.
Once the property is rezoned
-as a planned unit development,
City Manager Ken Sauer said
that much acreage' cbuld
accommodate as many as 690
homes. In a telephone
interview last week, James
Casper, project manager for
Cornerstone, placed the
number of homes between
300-400 once wetland acreage
is taken into consideration.
The developer likes the fact
that forested wetlands are
characteristic of the property
and hopes that backing some
of those future homes up to an
attractive,, natural environment
will be a selling point.
Cornerstone, which is
purchasing the land from
Robert and Laurie Mullins,
won't be constructing, those
homes, but selling lots off to
builders as the community and
roads are constructed over
multiple phases.
Casper said proximity to
schools and the city were other
characteristics that made the
site attractive for development
as a family-oriented
community. After the land use
change is accomplished in the
coming year, engineering and
permitting will begin. It will be
a year to 1.6 months before any
actual construction begins, said
Casper.
There isn't, as yet, a
working title for the
development, but inspiration
will be drawn frdm the
geography or history of the
area.

Everything is on track for the
construction of the fifth disposal cell at the
New River Regional Landfill, according
to Executive Director Darrell O'Neal.
Comments from the submission of the
first construction permit application were
received and the technical responses
sought by the Department of
Environmental Protection have been

by later March or early April, O'Neal said.
The new cell will help accommodate the

Bradford County Sheriff Bob Milner spoke about holiday traffic safety along
with Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler, Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford,
St. Johns County Sheriff David Shoar and Putnam County Sheriff Dean Kelly.


5 sheriffs promote holiday safety


As family and friends
gather this holiday season,
five local sheriffs offices
(Bradford, Clay, Jacksonville,
St. Johns and Putnam) and the
* Florida Department of
Transportation want everyone
to celebrate safely.
A news conference was held
on Dec. 1 at Jacksonville
Memory Gardens. All five
sheriffs reminded motorists to
"Celebrate Safely."
The cemetery location was
selected so the public could be
given a visual example, i.e.
grave markers, of the number
of people killed in crashes last
holiday season in this five-
county area and the number of
those that were DUI-related.

Traditionally, the
Thanksgiving, Christmas and
New Year's holidays are the
most deadly on Florida's
roadways. The goal of all five
counties is to reduce crashes,
injuries, and fatalities that
occur during the end of the
year. Agencies will be
conducting selective
enforcement details at various
times and locations to enforce
traffic laws. Law enforcement
will be looking for those
motorists who speed, drink
and drive and are unbuckled.
Each sheriff detailed his
county's most recent fatality
figures and what efforts are
already underway to.,prevent
more fatal crashes from


confidence, learn job search
and interview skills, create a
master application and resume,
and gain basic computer skills
while finding supportive
friends. There are even special
topic workshops covering
health care, legal and employer
issues.
Free classes and workshops
are offered monthly, And the


occurring. Bradford County
Sheriff Bob Milner said 27 of
the 267 crashes in this county
last year we're alcohol-related.
While only two deaths
occurred in traffic crashes last
year, Bradford has seen eight
fatal crashes so far in 2005-a
300 percent increase.
The following sheriffs are
also taking part in the
awareness campaign: Clay
County Sheriff Rick Beseler,
Jacksonville Sheriff John
Rutherford, St. Johns County
Sheriff David Shoar and
Putnam County Sheriff Dean
Kellk. Those four counties
combined with Bradford have
seen 237 traffic deatfis in
2005.

Oh wonderful child God in flesh,
In Him let us rest.

They said I wouldn't be here today.
They said I wouldn't amount to anything,
But I'm glad to say, that I'm on my way,
And I'm going more and more each day.
For there were many that started out with
me, but now, they've gone astray.
But I'm still holding on.
Happy Birthday Grandma Cynt!

When you say that Saturn is millions of miles from Earth. it's
hard to sit in a classroom and visualize that distance. Bradford
High School instructor Keith Watts uses an outdoor lab to help
his students understand the distances involved.
Students research the planets of the solar system and then make
scale models. At left. Rocky Rudoi holds a scale model of Earth
and its moon. The class then adjourns to the BHS football field
and students pace off relative distances for the planets.
The sun. Mercury, Venus. Earth and Mars, all wind up in one
end zone. The distances between the other planets grow
progressively larger and Pluto winds up it the other end zone.
While the football field is not millions of miles wide, Watts ,
said it helps students better understand that the distances between 2
some of the planets are much larger than others.

Starke man on road to recovery after 3-story


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

Christopher Holder of Starke
has a long road ahead of him
as he journeys toward recovery
from a 46-foot fall at his job,


site in St. Augustine Dec. 5.
Holder is a steel worker who
was on the roof of the
Anastasia Baptist Church in St.
Augustine when something
caused him to fall from the
three-story building and land
on a concrete oad.


According to close friends,
Holder's back is broken, as are
both of his legs. His left arm
suffered a large number of
fractures, to the point that
some of the bone is actually
missing. He was lifeflighted
from the accident site to


Jacksonville.
Deborah Luke, mother of
Christina Luke, Holder's
fiancee, reported Monday that
Holder has been moved from
the Trauma Unit of Shands
Jacksonville to Brooks Rehab
Hospital in Jacksonville.


"They say he won't be
paralyzed," said Luke "We're
thankful for that, but they also
say it will be close to a year
before he is able to get up and
move around on his own."
Holder had six surgeries
within six days, beginning


fall


shortly after the accident.
Metal pins and plates were
installed to hold his broken
bones together. He is currently
having to remain immobile
from the neck down while the

healing process begins, said
Luke.
He will be confined to a bed
or wheelchair for at least nine
months and will be severely
limited for at least a year: His
chances of eventually
recovering his mobility are
good, however, said Luke.
The number of pins and
plates that have been installed
prompted family members to
try a little levity in an effort to
cheer Holder up.
"We've been calling him the
bionic man to try to get him to
laugh," said Luke. "He didn't
think it was funny, though. He
just wants to go home."
Holder normally has a very
positive outlook on life. "He's
always telling us we stress too
Muchh" said Luke.
Worker's Comp will pay the
medical bills and pay a portion
of Holder's salary while he
recovers, but expenses that are
not covered are already
mounting. An account has
been opened at Mercantile
Bank by co-workers, friends
and concerned neighbors.
(Refer to the. account titled
"Donation Account
Christopher Holder" in order
to make donations.) For more
information, call Luke at (904)
782-1023.
Luke and her husband Joey
have built a porch and'
wheelchair iamp at Holder's
home-in anticipation of the day
he comes home from Brooks
Rehab.
"We built the porch because
he loves it outside. We figured
if he can't get around to go do
things, he can at least get out
-on the porch and be outside,"
said Luke.
The home is at the end of
long dirt drive that needs
repair, said Luke. The family
is hopeful that they can find a
way. to get the drive smoothed
out before the time Holder is
being transported up and down
it to medical appointments, etc.
Christina Luke has been
spending every day at the
hospital with her fiance.,"Their
whole life has been disrupted." ,
said Luke. "We just goi her to
the point %where -she will come
home at night. She was
sleeping at the hospital in
whatever spot she could find."


Other family members have
also been at the hospital c\ oc
day to lend moral support and
help Holder's emotional
recovery.
The several ministers who
serve St. Augustine .IIi.pli
Church have also visited ', c.\
day and that has impi:.-'d
Holder and the f.Luni, said
Luke. "We especially need
prayers for healing," said
Luke.
Luke said Holder told them
he had time to realize he was
falling and to realize he was
headed for a portion of
concrete that had rebar sticking
up out of it.
"He said he flipped himself
around in the air so that he was
headed for a different patch of
concrete, without the rebar,"
said Luke.
He also told Luke he tried to
twist around so that his head
did not hit the pavement. "He
said he knew if his head hit the
cement, he would die," Luke
said. Holder was successful in
avoiding head injuries.
"His injuries are horrible,
but bones will heal. He is
alive. He is very, very lucky,"
said Luke.

conditions for security and
stability in the maritime
environment, as well as
complements the counter-
terrorism and security efforts of
regional nations. MSO denies
international terrorists use of
the maritime environment as a
venue for attack or to transport
personnel, weapons or other
materials.
USS Austin is a warship
that embarks, transports and
lands elements of a landing

of Morton Memorial High
School of Knights Town, Ind.

1990.

Start with age. A candidate must be
21 years old with a high school
diploma. The applicant's high school
grades must rank him or her in the
upper percentile of the class.,

but if an applicant gets past the basic
requirements, he or she can be on the
way to making a better-than-average

Reader
reminds of
the reason for
the season
Dear Editor:
A holiday of the world that
the churches and supposed-to-
be Christians have adopted as a
Christian holiday is Christmas.
Christmas or Christ-mass is
not mentioned in the Bible;
neither does the Bible say that
Christ Jesus was born on Dec.
25.
Christmas is a manufacturers'
and merchants' holiday season,
always has been and always
will be, honoring their savior
Santa Claus. In case you don't
know Santa Claus, he is the
little fat man in the red suit
who laughs at you all the way
to the bank. .
---Santa-has many' helpers that
represent all the manufacturers
throughout the whole world.
He is the one that gets you to
believe that you are worshiping
God and doing God a service
when you go out and get in
debt for things you can't
afford, all in the name of
religion.
He also teaches you to teach
your children to worship him
(Santa). Do your children
believe you bought their
presents or that good old Santa
brought them?
Wake up, people, you have
been programmed to do these
things and are made to believe
it is of God. I know for a fpct
that your churches have
programs that have nothing to
do with the birth of Jesus
Christ, but follow after their
traditions and after the
rudiments of the world and not
after Christ.
I urge you to follow after
Jesus Christ and not after
traditions of man. Read the
Word of God and be led by


the driver wants. Some drivers may.
travel throughout the United States
and return home two or three times a
year. Some drivers are allowed to
have their spouse accompany them,
and some firms have husband-wife
driving teams with both on the
payroll. Working conditions are quite
flexible.
Tom Miller, safety director for
Davis Express Inc. of Starke and a
1976 graduate of Bradford High
School, began driving. a rig for Davis
six years
ago and has,

in the firm
to an
executive
position,
but he still
takes a rtin
in a big rig
on occasion
"just 'to
keep his
hand in,"
but not as
often as he
-would like.
Speaking before the. Starke Rotary
Club recently, Miller said it will take
10 years or more for the supply of
drivers to catch up with the demand.
He said there is a large pool of drivers
in the area and nrany of them move
from one employer to another for any
number of reasons. The several
trucking firms in the area employ
hundreds of drivers and constantly
advertise for additional drivers,
offering bonuses for signing on.
- Would'-be drivers can understand
the necessity for competent and
dependable drivers when they
consider the owners are trusting them
with trucks that cost $95,000 and
trailers that cost $50,000 plus the
value of the cargo.
Opportunity awaits those' who are
prepared, and preparation must begin
early in life. You, too, can be a
winner.

McRae area
needs full-
time fire
department
Few people in this area even
know about the little
community called McRae, just
outside of Keystone Heights. It
doesn't have, a post office, a
gas station, or even a traffic
light, but what it does have is
one of the best elementary
schools in the district, several
churches, and thousands of
residents. In the years that I
have lived here, I have had two
emergencies that required
fire/rescue personnel to come to
my home.
In the first emergency, my
Wife was having stroke like
symptoms and needed an
ambulance badly.
I called 911 and Waited. It
took 39 minutes for the
ambulance to arrive. In that
time, she could have died.
The ambulance had to come
all the way from Keystone
Heights, since our own fire
department, two blocks from
our .home, isn't manned full
time.
In the next emergency, years
later, I was about to leave my
house when I smelled gasoline
fumes coming from my car. I
jumped out and .opened the
hood (big mistake) when the
flames erupted into a ball of
fire I could not put out with
the water hose. I called 911
again. This time it took 30
minutes for, again, the
Keystone Heights -Fire
ZDepartment to get to my home.
My car had all but burned
completely out by the time
they got here. ..'.
I understand economics very
well, but what I can't
understand is paying high
taxes and living so close to the
fire department without anyone
being there to help in an


emergency.
I've questioned several
people,. who wish to be
unnamed, about this and I'm
told the same story over and
over.

It's about money.
Clay County says they need
a living and sleeping facility at
the McRae Fire Department as
well as funding to make it a
full-time fire and rescue
department.
Since there are thousands of
homes in this area, which pay
taxes and are affected by the
lack of a fire department here,
where is all this money going?
The average home in this
area pays $600 a year in
property taxes, which equates
to somewhere near $2,4 million
per year.
If people's safety is no more
important than that, then why
do we live here? I've been to
the fire department in Keystone
Heights and I've asked for help
and guidance on this subject
but I'm told Clay County.just
doesn't listen.
The firemen I have talked 'to
just shake.their head and tell
me to write letters, go to
county meetings, etc.
There is no reason why the
McRae Fire Department cannot
be manned full time. They have
equipment and a radio system.
The water is there and the
phone works. All they need is
some sort of sleeping quarters.
If someone has a decent
mobile home that could be
converted to sleeping quarters
that they would be willing to
donate, call me or email me.
I'll come and take pictures of
it and even try to find someone
to move it. Then I'll write a
proposal to Clay County and
submit it 'through the proper
channels for approval.
The old saying goes, "the
squeaky wheel get the most
grease." Well, I'm the
squeakiest of wheels when it
comes to something I.believe
in.
I love this area, I love the
people here, I love the lakes,
the wildlife, and the homey feel
of McRae.

Bradford High School is
under a tornado watch, and it
happens every Friday.
WBHS "Tornado Watch"
news is played on the
televisions at BHS during first
period every Friday.
The 20 students in the video
production class are
responsible for all aspects of
the newscast. They write
scripts, edit video, interview
people, produce video
segments and brainstorm new
ideas.
Tornado Watch is made up
of different segments,
including news, sports and
specials. Due to the five-
minute time limit for the
newscast, every segment
cannot air every Friday.
This is where the students
learn about news judgment.
They have to know what is
important to run each week
and what has to be cut out.
The news includes a
segment called "60 Seconds"
as well. It is an entertaining
and informative spot about
special projects that teachers
are doing in their classrooms.
"60 Seconds" helps teachers
and students become
acquainted with interesting
projects going on in their
school.
Lorna Reddish, who
volunteers, her time to teach
the class, said, "These kids
have talked about big issues to
small issues."
"Where's Kia?" a video
about issues ranging from hall
passes to. sexual harassment,
was presented during a school
assembly.
Like any news program, the
WBHS news produces
specials. "Hick Town," was a
humorous special about the
opening of the Wal-Mart
Supercenter.
Specials allow students to
inform BHS about events
happening in Bradford County.
The students have fun alQng
the way, but the video
production class is not just fun
and games.
The students in the program
do lots of hard work and try
out different tasks. One week; a
student might appear on
camera. The next, he or she
will write the script or edit
video, said Reddish.

Dear Editor:
During this season of giving
and thankfulness, I would like

citizens.
Thanks to all our foster
parents and relative care givers.
You give of your time, your
homes and your lives. Thank
you for giving these precious,
innocent children a place to lay
their heads at night in peace.
To the child advocates, thank'
you for the love and
compassion you show children
who have been molested,
assaulted and abused.
To our police and sheriff
officers who go out on
domestic violence, drug offense
and well-being calls, you
lovingly and carefully remove
the children from dangerous
environments, thank you.
And a big thank you goes
out to the concerned neighbors,
friends and family members
who put the welfare, of the
children ahead of their own.
These people are truly brave
and unselfish to make a call to
the abuse hot line. Your care
and concern has saved many
children's lives and their future.
To the judges who decide
what is best and safe for the
children of Florida, bless you
for all your hours of studying
the abuse cases and making
wise decisions.
And last but not least, thank
you to all the Guardians ad
Litem who volunteer their own.
time to visit the children,
research, investigate and
represent what is in the best
interest of the abused children
in our court system. You have
a tpugh job and thank you
from the bottom of my heart for
making a difference in these
children's lives.
Thanks to all the giving and
caring citizens of Florida. You

students, who before the class
described themselves as
"technically retarded," now
find themselves speaking in
technical jargon.
Because the class is only
offered one period a day, the
students in the class spend
countless hours working on the
news and special video
projects on their own time.
Outside of school time, they
film sporting events, academic
events, homecoming and
special meetings. Besides
doing the school news every
week, the class is currently
.working on a senior video that
will be for sale at the end. of
the year.
From the time .the news airs
on Friday until the last minute
of class on Thursday, the
students work diligently at
creating a news show both
students and teachers will
enjoy.
Shane Parmenter, a 10"'-
grader in the class, said,
"Every one works at their own
thing, and then it comes
together."
Even then, the work does
not stop. After the news, the
class critiques the news and
comes up with new ideas for
the next week.
- ,;The new is-.enoughtp take
' up their time-every week, but';,
the students are always,
dedicated to working on the
next project, said Reddish. The
class has partnered with Santa


Fe Community College to do
four public service
announcements about dual
enrollment.
'Eventually, the class hopes
to produce some additional
video to be aired on Comcast
Channel 11 in Siarke, which
by law can be used by the
community for public
information.
The video production class
accessed the channel
previously on Aug. 18-19 .to
air 'a 12-minute PSA by
Superintendent Harry Hatcher.
The PSA welcomed everyone
back to BHS for the year.
Reddish said in order for the
students to experience "real
world learning," the .video
production class will take a
field trip to the University of
Florida's College of
Journalism and
Communications on Jan. 20, to
learn more about video
production.
Four students will also be
able to job shadow at WTLV
Channel 12 in Jacksonville.
The BHS video production
class has had a productive
year, making' the first. ever
homecoming video. These
video tapes are still on sale for

UC boys win neighborhood battle against Bradford

By CLIFF SMELLEYt .- L .pointers: Spiller. Free throws:
Telegraph Staff Writer rY1~~1-30.


Justin Griffin helped spark a
12-4 run as the Union County
boys basketball team defeated
Bradford 83-73 on Dec. 9 in
Lake Butler.
The game provided nothing
more than bragging rights, as
neither team plays in the same
district or classification, but
there was a playoff-type
atmosphere as the gym was
packed and the crowd was
Constantly abuzz. Bradford (2-
3) held the lead only three
times, but the Tigers (1-1)
Could never completely pull
away as the score was close
throughout.
Bradford's Kyle Wilson had
a 3-point attempt that just
missed dropping through
before the third quarter came
to a close, but Wilson opened
the fourth quarter with a
driving layup to pull the
Tornadoes within 61-59.
The Tigers' Zel Highland,
who led all scorers with 27
points, had two baskets to help.
keep his team ahead, but
Bradford's Antwan Brown
pulled the Tornadoes back to
within two with a 3-pointer.
That's when Griffin took
charge.
C.J. Spiller came up with a
steal for the Tigeri-,which led-
to a basket by Griffin. Griffin
followed that up with his own
steal, which he took all the
way to the basket for a layup.
Griffin converted on another
drive to the basket to put the
Tigers up 72-63 with 5:12 to
play.
Wilson scored consecutive
"baskets for Bradford, but
_ Griffin answered with another
score, followed .by- -aSpiller
score and subsequent free
throw that put Union up by 10.
A 3-pointer by Wilson
followed, but the Tornadoes
only managed one other
score-a 3-pointer by
Roderick DeSue-during the
last two minutes of the game.
Griffin, who finished the
game with 15 points, and
Highland combined to score 26
of the Tigers' 43 second-half
points.
Highland helped the Tigers
build an eight-point lead in the
first quarter,-scoringisix points
during an 11-4 run. Brendan
Odom had the other five points
as the Tigers built an 18-10
lead.
Ted Young drained one of
his three first-half 3-pointers at
the end of the quarter to put
Union up 21-14.
Bradford found itself
eventually trailing by nine in
the second quarter before
putting together a 15-4 run.
The Tornadoes' Clinton
Cubbedge drove the lane for a
score,, then launched a
downcourt pass to Wilson,


SFCC
Continued from p. 1C
The course. is designed for
people who are not accounting
majors. It is' aimed at teachifing
people who: work in the
business world about how to
use account information to
make financial decisions.
Things like' budgeting,
analyzing business costs and
evaluating the financial
situation of a business will be
addressed by coursework.
This course (ACG2071) and'
another financial accounting
course (ACG2021) form a
basic accounting background
-foY people who planpo enter --
the business world. Adams
said SFCC's goal is to offer
both of these courses each
term.
Since these courses are part
of the basic education needs of
almost any student who plans
to work in business, offering
both each semester would
better meet the needs of the
students.
Hiring an instructor to teach'
both courses at all the SFCC
campuses each semester would
be cost prohibitive: The
Interlink method will make
this possible since one teacher
could teach the course at all
the campuses at the same time.
Adams has been a full-time
instructor at SFCC for four
'years and taught part time at
SFCC for four years prior to
that." -

Florida
retailers get
high accuracy
marks
, When it comes to the
accuracy of checkout scanners,
Florida retailers earn a high
grade. That's the word from
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Cha'r!es H.
Bronson, whose department has
just concluded its annual pre-
holiday scanner survey of
stores throughout the state.
Of 2,975 items tested in 59
stores in every region of
Florida last week, only 47
price scanning.errors or 1.5


33-monthb CD


. percent ot the merchandise
tested were detected by
inspectors. Among the
mistakes, more than two-to-one
were in customers' favor.
"I commend our businesses
and retailers for making sure
that their scanning equipment
accurately reflects the actual
price of the merchandise they're
selling to such a high degree,"
Bronson said.
Only four of the 59 stores
tested failed their inspection,
which requires an accuracy rate
of 98 percent. Two stores failed
for excessive overcharges while
two others failed for too many
undercharges. In all of those
cases, inspectors, have placed
the businesses on a higher
inspection frequency in the
future.


pe'cial!


t While scanning errors appear
to be relatively uncommon,
mistakes can and do -
happen. What it means is that
consumers need to remain
aware of the price that they
should be charged for
merchandise, Bronson said.
For example, among errors
detected during last week's
sweep was a $64 overcharge for
a woman's jacket at a North
Florida department store and an
overcharge of $39.50 for a
dress at a South Florida
department store. Both errors,
as well as all other pricing
mistakes found by inspectors,
were immediately corrected by
store management.
"Know the price of the
merchandise that you're buying,
make sure that's what you're
charged at the checkout line
and keep receipts,," Bronson
said. "If there is any
discrepancy, bring it to the
attention of store personnel."
The Commissioner's
Division 'of Standards tests

most other devices that sell
products by weights or

BC science fair is a huge draw i....
1. -.i,". 'd.4 i. 1 T, u4 'r tI' .n r " I


More than 280
students, including
28 who will be
regional delegates,
participate in
countywide fair

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a small crowd that
showed up at the Bradford
County science fair awards
ceremony on Dec. 8, but that
was in no way a reflection on
the level of participation in this
year's fair.
Many ribbons were not
handed out at the ceremony,
which was held at Starke
Elementary School, but that
was because so many students
had other obligations because
of various other events taking
place that night, such as the
Bradford Middle School band
concert.
"There are too many things
going on and these students are
involved all over the county,"
said Bradford Middle School
Principal Jeff Cable, who
served as master of
ceremonies.
Those students eventually
got their ribbons and there
were plenty of them. The
Bradford County. science fair
was comprised of 284 middle
school students, resulting in
255 projects (some students


worked in teams).
"'It was awesome," Bradford
Middle School science teacher
Cindy Combs said. "I never
dreamed that we would have
that much participation."
Cable said, "For the first
time in years, every middle
school grade science teacher
had students enter projects in
the.,science fair. That's just
wonderful."
There was so much
involvement, that space was at
a premium at the Bradford
County Fairgrounds; where the
science fair was set up.
"We used every table they
had and we probably could've
used a few more," Combs said
Thirty-six ribbons were
handed out for first, second
and third place, as well as a
ribbon for Best in Show, won
by Dean Shireman, and
ribbons for participation.
Also, the county's 28
regional delegates were
announced:- Jikoby Adams
(Bradford Middle School),
Dalton Belinske (BMS), Casey
Cloud (BMS), Cassie Coolidge
(BMS), Tyler Crawford
(BMS), Ashley Cruce (BMS),

Natali Powell (BMS), Rowdy

Dean Shireman (BMS),
Brennan Starling (BMS) and
Tashina Wells (BMS).
Those students will
participate in the Suwannee
Valley Regional Science and
Engineering Fair Feb. 21-22 at
Lake City Community
College.
"Congratulations," Cable
told the students. "We wish
you the best of luck at the next
level. Just be proud as you can
be of what you've
accomplished."
This is the second straight
year there has been a
countywide science fair in
Bradford County. In the past,
regional delegates advanced
from fairs held at their schools.
Now, winners from the
school fairs at Bradford
Middle School and Lawley
Community School advance to
the countywide fair prior to
earning the right to go to the
regional fair. Peg Trimble, an
LCS teacher, said she likes'the

Local kids taught selves to


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

George and Vickie Martin of
Lawtey thought it was cute
when their daughter, Garielle,
kept playing with a cardboard
>'cutout of a piano keyboard
" when she was about 10 years
old.
When she walked up to a
real piano one day and began
to play, they were amazed.
"We were dumbfounded," said
Vickie. "We had no idea she
really knew how to play."
"I've always had a desire to
play the piano," said Garielle.
She found the cardboard cutout
in a book and started figuring
out the finger positions.
When her parents discovered
that she was very serious about
learning how to play, they
sought a private teacher. Local
music teachers had no
openings in their classes at the
time, but the Martins bought
her a keyboard for Christmas
that year. Garielle handled the
rest of it herself.
A cousin helped her learn
how to read music and local
Piano teacher Mona Canova
| gave her a piano book. Garielle
.has been playing and singing
for churches, special
gatherings, nursing homes and
. elderly shut ins ever since.
: Garielle. now 18, is not the
Sonlk Martin child who shows
an aptitude for music,
,however. All three of her
!--younger- sisters were soon
following in her footsteps and
all four girls now perform
together.
Sherah, 17, recently taught
herself to, play the flute-in
about a month's time. Carol
Ann, 14, has loved guitars
since her early childhood and
'.has been playing one seriously
-for about *; .a, year now.,
*Alexandra,; 13,~ was given a
clarinet in 2004 and has since
:taught herself to play it.
All four girls play for their
^-church, Laura Baptist, and for
the churches of friends and
'relatives as far away as
Bonifay in the Panhandle.
They are not actively
promoting themselves as a
gospel singing group, but
people keep asking them to
play and sing, so they do.
"We want to sing songs that
have -- message, not just
meaningless words," said
Sherah.
The best messages, say all
four girls, are in the old hymns
and they often perform these.
The3 have even gone to the
trouble to research the history
of the traditional hymns they
enjoy the most.
Some of those hymns cost
their creators dearly since
writing Christian music was
something people were often,
persecuted for in the. old days.
"There are people who paid
great prices for some of those
old hymns," said Sherah.
The girls spend two to three
hours a day practicing
individually or as a .group. If
they have a performance


coming up, they practice more.
With four of them working
on different instruments, it's
sometimes hard to find
individual practice rooms.
"Sometimes one of them has to
go outside to find a place to
practice," said Vickie.
In addition to all the
instruments the Martins


already play, Garielle is
learning to play the harp. She
has been teaching herself to
play that instrument for the
past year.
She wants a pedal harp, one
of the large harps you see on
television being played by
members of an orchestra.
However, with an $18,000

Blandin commander shares experiences


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Television cannot show the
true scope of what life is like
in Afghanistan. Col. David
"Benny" Nelson knows. He
was there in person and he
shared his experience with
members of the Kiwanis Club
of Starke on Dec. 6.
. Nelson, the garrison
commander at Camp Blanding,
was deployed to Afghanistan
in support of Operation-
Enduring Freedom in July
2002 as the commander of the,
930th Army Liaison Team,
which is based in Homestead.
He has been to Third World
countries, but he said the
conditions he saw in
Afghanistan were hard to
describe.
"This was probably worse
than anything I've ever been
to," Nelson said. "We referred
to it as a Fourth World


to be made on what to do with
the rest of the money. Nelson
said the school was going to be
relocated, so the Guardsmen
did not want to purchase
anything that would be a
permanent fixture.
What the Guardsmen did
was, hire local carpenters to
build wooden...b.enches and
tables for the students to work
at. Nelson said the children's
faces lit up when they received
the benches and tables, which
was a real rewarding
experience for him.
"Those kids were just so
excited," he said.
Unfortunately, Nelson also
had a sad experience involving
a child, who was
approximately 8 years old,
who was run over by a military
vehicle driven by one of
Nelson's lieutenants.
Nelson apologized to the
father, who was sitting nearby,
numerous times, but the man
showed little emotion, saying

Pictured above is the new combined support
maintenance shop earlier in its construction phase.
Col. David "Benny" Nelson, Camp Blanding's
commissioned officer
education system as. well as
officer candidate school.
"Instead of sending
(soldiers) off to a regular
Army school, we train them
right here," Nelson said.
Another project Nelson is
excited about is the
construction of a 44' Weapons
of Mass Destruction Civil
Support Team facility at a cost
of approximately $1.2 million.
"I don't know if you know
it, but you have a certified civil


garrison commander, said personnel should be able
to move into the new $24 million facility any time
now.


support team here full tim& at
Camp Blanding," Nelson said.
"That's one of the few
certified in the country that
responds in the event we have
a weapons of mass destruction
situation. That ought to give
you some peace of
mind-you've got some
certified and trained
professionals over there.
"Hopefully, we'll never use
that, but they're there if we
need them."


Nelson discussed several
other projects, pointing out
that all but one of the projects"
has been or is being funded by
federal dollars.. .
The credit for that, Nelson,
said, goes to Maj. Gen.
Douglas Burnett, adjutant
general for the state of Florida.
"I've never seen anybody as,
good as he is as far as going"
out and getting the money we6
need for our soldiers," Nelson
said.


Recent construction projects at Camp Blanding have included the addition of
lakefront cottages for recreational use by soldiers and their families.


country. It's basically in its
own class. There is so much
poverty over there it is unreal."
Nelson said people who live
in the poorest areas of this
country would,be living "high
on the hog" if they were in
Afghanistan.,,
; One particula'-'ight, close to
where Nelson's unit was
billeted, spurred Nelson to take
action.
He said there was a building
that he took to be deserted. In
fact, it would have been
condemned and destroyed here
in the States. However, this
building was a school.
"We said, 'We've got to do
something here. We want to do.
more than our military
mission, we want to help
rebuild Afghanistan,'" Nelson
said. "We figured the best way
we could rebuild Afghanistan
was through education and its
children."
Nelson met with the
school's principal and an'
interpreter, asking the man
what the school needed. The
principal responded by saying
he wanted just a few pieces of:
paper and a clock-he would
be happy just to get that.
He could tell the school
needed a lot more by looking
at it, Nelson said, though he
suspected the principal was
skeptical that the school would
actually receive anything.
Nelson, through e-mail,
contacted people in the States,
describing the conditions of
the school and forwarding
pictures of the school.
"I got $2,000 in cash over a
period of three or four months,
and then we got $800 worth of
school supplies sent to us,"
Nelson said.
Paper and a clock were
purchased, but a decision had

it was simply destiny.
It was hard for Nelson to
relate to. He said if anything
happened to his 24-year-old
son, he would become,
hysterical.,,.
"This father acted as if
basically. nothing had
happened," Nelson said. "I
think I was more taken aback
and upset than he was."e
Nelson said when he looks
at the U.S. involvement in
Afghanistan, he can conclude
that-this country's presence is
making a difference.
"I look back now and I see
they've elected a president,
they've elected their
legislature,", Nelson said. "I
can honestly stand right here
today and say Afghanistan is a
success and will be a success."
Nelson opened his speech by
talking about some of the.
construction projects going on
at Camp Blanding, such as the
recent completion of six
lakeside cottages-for use by


soldiers and their
families-and a physical
fitness center. The total for. the
two projects, which also
includes two cottages that are
95-percent complete, is more
than $1.2 million.
A huge undertaking is the
construction of a new
combined support maintenance
shop at a cost ofe $24 million.
Nelson said personnel should
be moving into the new
building anytime now.
Phase I of the construction
of a new Regional Training
Institute is currently under
way. The total cost of that
project will be $50 million.

Institute includes. the non-

FWC officers
warn
poachers: We
are watching
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation .,Commission
(FWC) law enforcement
officers, have a warning for
illegal hunters. this season:
we're watching and we know
how to catch you.,
,Although the vast majority
of hunters are ethical and legal,
some seem to find great sport
in breaking the law. Illegal
hunters often spin colorful,
sometimes evdn believable,
stories to wildlife officers, and
it takes a combination of
patience, persistence and
experience for lawmen to


finally get the truth. But if
officers persevere, the
wrongdoers generally end up
facing the music.
A pair of Volusia County
men found that out the hard
way last week when FWC
officers charged them with six
counts of illegally killing deer.
The charges stemmed from a
two-week investigation that
began the opening weekend of
the general gun hunting season
in the Ocala National Forest,
took officers to a hunt club
near Samsula, and finally to a
residence in Orange City.
This story began mid-
afternoon on Nov. 13 while
FWC officers Washburn Wear
and Joe Simpson patrolled the
forest, keeping their eyes open
for illegal activity. The two
officers stopped a white Toyota
pickup truck to check the


hunters' licenses and ask the
two men inside if they'd had
any luck hunting. The men,

The decision to home school
their children just sort of
happened, said Vickie.
Garielle attended kindergarten
in a public school. George's
mother lived with the' family at
the time and had -health
problems. Garielle brought
homee the usual array of viruses
from school and passed them
along. "We all stayed sick that
entire year." said Vickie.
That problem, coupled with
a desire to provide a more
Christianity-based education
for their children, prompted
the Martins to decide to
provide their education
through Vickie's efforts,
instead of at a public school.
"We felt that this (home
schooling) was the .route that
was right for us and it's been
very beneficial since it allowed
the girls a more flexible
schedule so they can sing at
more places," said Vickie.,

.Garielle is 18 and ready to
graduate, but she said she
doesn't plan to go to college.
"My long-term goal is to
glorify God through music."
said Garielle. "I[ have no
aspirations for fame.or fortune,
but I plan to continue to
perform."
Sherah said all four sisters
have thought about a future in
music. "We intend to stay
together and perform as a
group," she said.
In addition to practicing and
preparing for performances,
the girls help care for their 96-
year-old aunt, Ila Helseth.
Helseth lives next door to the
Martins and is remarkably self-
sufficient for her age. The
Martins prepare her meals and
keep her house clean. They
also take her on weekly
outings.
Sherah also paints and
designs her own greeting
cards. "They're much prettier
than the ones you can buy in a
store," said Vickie.
All four girls do needlework
and like to. bake homemade
goodies in their spare time,
although they don't actually
have a lot of spare time.

Jacob Robert Taylor, 18, and
Shane Tyler Emanuel, 20, both
of Orange City, said. they
hadn't shot anything yet.
Emanuel had his hunting
license, but Taylor didn't and
Simpson wrote him a ticket for
the violation.
However, things didn't end
there. The officers noticed some
blood on the tailgate of the
truck and asked about it.
Emanuel told them it was
from a deer he killed the day
before.
After additional questioning
and a variety of inconsistent
answers, the officers told
Emanuel and Taylor they
suspected some illegal activity
was going on, and the men
were under investigation.
Wear and Simpson drove
Emanuel and Taylor to a hunt
club in the Samsula area of
Volusia County. The men said
they had killed the deer there
but continued to tell the
officers tall tales about where
the deer carcass was. In one
version of events they claimed
they threw the carcass in a
pond near the road, and an
alligator probably got it. Wear
waded into a pond and spent


20 minutes searching but found
nothing.
While Wear and Simpson
were at the hunt club with the
suspects, Lt. Gregg Eason,
FWC supervisor for the Ocala
National Forest, was at the
suspects' residence in Orange
City where he found fresh deer
meat and numerous deer antlers,
including a trophy-quality 8-
point in velvet. Eason radioed
Wear and Simpson with this
new information.E"
Eventually, Emanuel and
Taylor showed the officers
where they had dumped two
deer they killed at night a
couple of weeks earlier. In the
end, the officers seized a
Toyota pickup truck, two rifles,
a spotlight, deer meat and the
velvet antlers of a buck Taylor
said he killed in August.
Taylor also said he killed a 6-
point buck during the 2003
archery season, but officers
could not charge him with that
violation because too much
time had lapsed.
Officers charged Taylor with
three counts of taking deer at
night with a gun and light and
one count of taking deer during
closed season. They charged

Emanuel with two counts of

and light.
All the charges are first-
degree misdemeanors,
punishable by a maximum fine
of $1,000 and one year in jail.
This case is only one
instance of FWC officers
tracking down poachers.
On opening weekend of the
general gun season, officers in
the Ocala National Forest
charged eight individuals with
eight separate deer violations.
In addition, they are working
with the state's attorney's
office on a separate
investigation that likely will
result in about 20 more such
charges, all stemming from the
opening weekend in the Ocala
National Forest.

Lawtey businesses closed and

time. Even strawberries
suffered.
At its height, the strawberry
industry saw 13 to 14 train car-
oads of berries shipped per

The Depression, increased
