Reaching out


Starke files answer

to cross lawsuit


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
Just in time for Christmas, the city
of Starke through its attorney's office
filed a response to the legal complaint
against the presence of a cross on the
city's water tower on Tuesday.
The city learned in September it
would be facing a lawsuit filed by
American Atheists Inc. of Texas. and
Bradford County resident Lon Bevill.
Among other things, the suit charges
that the presence of the cross on city
property represents a breech in the
separation between church and state
and is, therefore, unconstitutional.
The suit seeks removal of the cross
from the tower, reimbursement of
legal costs and any additional relief to
which the plaintiffs may be entitled.
Starke's response denies most of
the points set forth in the original
complaint, including the religious
nature of the "structure" and its
characterization as a cross.
City Attorney Terry Brown, who
was out of town and unavailable for
comment, has advanced the idea that
the symbol commonly regarded as a
cross is not a cross. The city's
response even seems to deny any part
in placing the cross on the water


tower. -
The city is claiming that neither the
American Atheists nor Lon Bevill
have standing to bring the lawsuit, as
neither plaintiff resides in the city
limits. The grievances aired in the
complaint against the city would be
more appropriately resolved by
legislative action than in court,
according to the response.
Failure to allege personal or
prospective injury traceable to the
city amounts to failure to state a
claim and the city's second defense.
"Plaintiff (Bevill) has failed to
identify a personal injury suffered as
a consequence of the violation
beyond the psychological
consequences of observing conduct
with which he disagrees," the
response reads.
Lastly, the city is denying any
constitutional violation based on
several points, including Brown's
advancement that the symbol is not
religious in nature. According to the
response, the symbol has a secular
purpose, neither advances nor
inhibits religion, is not a religious
endorsement and does not comprise
an excessive government
entanglement with religion.

Telegraph Staff Writer
The city of Starke's newest animal
control officer quickly became its
toughest critic as evidenced by his
appearance at the Dec. 15 county
commission meeting, where he
pleaded with the county for funds to
improve living conditions for
homeless animals.
Tom Mintz, who had been on the
job just four days, said the facilities
Starke inherited from the county
when it took over animal control in
2003 were "woefully inadequate" to,
care for the dogs and cats housed
there. There are just eight cages to
house all of the animals picked up or
dropped off at the facility, which is
located on Edwards Road.
"Up until today, I had over 40
animals in eight cages, and three
cages for cats. Cages for cats measure
18 inches by 24 inches, and I've got
three of them. I had 28 cats in those
cages," Mintz said.
In addition to cramped quarters,
the animals live in filth and are
exposed to the weather, he said, and
there is no supervision or public
assistance available, even part-time,
when he is outresponding to calls.
Much less is spent per capital on
animal control in Bradford County
than the national average, Mintz


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford County School
Board approved a 4.2 percent raise in
member salaries at the Dec. 12 board
meeting.
The 2005-2006 salary for the
Bradford County School Board
members will be $24,512.
The 2004-2005 salary was
$23,477. This equals a raise of
$1,035 for board members.
'The salary that was approved was
recommended by the Florida School
Boards Association.
Each year, the associatin gives
school districts a recommendation on


pointed out, and much of what is
spent is going toward euthanizing
animals. Last year, he said, the city
spent $18,000 on euthanization,
which represents an average of 75
animals each month.
Mintz said he has been told by the
city that the county doesn't contribute
enough funding for animal control,
and that is why he approached the
county. commission. In fact, the
county anrd participating
municipalities are billed based on the
number of calls for service that come
in from those areas. Most calls still
come from unincorporated Bradford
County, so the county commission is
still contributing the most money to
the program-more than $25,000 in
2004.
Mintz said he and his wife saved
the city money during his brief stint
as animal control officer by forgoing
the vet fee and, instead, giving away
as many animals to homes as they
could. Those represent animals the
city won't have to pay to euthanize
and savings in that area could be used
to work on the animal control facility,
Mintz said.
"I was told yesterday they had zero
dollars to put into this, zero dollars. If
I'm saving them $800 in euthanasia
fees, there's $800 right there-and
that's one week," he said.
See MESS, p. 3A


what their board members' salaries
should be.
Florida statutes require school
boards to determine its member's
salaries annually.
Statute 145 gives a formula for
compensation of county
constitutional officers -that are
elected. A base salary is adjusted
according to population data and
other factors.
This formula is what the FSBA
bases its recommendation on.
'I hc school board does not have to
accept the recommendation. It can set
ith salaries above or below the
-.L kc.lrd amount, as other school
ihiik i'. have done in the past.

New registration renewal notices being sent out


A new vendor and a new
form for vehicle renewal
notices has caused some
confusion..
Tax Collector Teila Pearson's
office has received numerous
calls about the notices from
citizens who thought they were
being summoned to court,
according to Pearson's
errployee Linda Lee.
In the past, drivers have
simply received a postcard
reminding them to renew their
vehicle registrations. The new
form looks more official, and
people may be confusing the
heading, which refers to the tax
collector's honorary title, the
Honorable Teila N. Pearson,
with a subpoena to testify.
It is, however, merely the
same notice received in the
past, just in a new format. The
advantages of the new format
include an addressed envelope
that drivers can readily use to
return their renewal by mail.
The new vendor is also less
costly, Lee said.
Any questions can be
referred to Pearson's office at
(904) 966-6240.

Assessing the impact of new fees


Land development of any
size and substance drives the
need for a variety of public
facilities to support it. Most
common is the need for
additional roads, public
utilities, parks, schools, police
and fire stations.
The time is long past since
government-particularly
local government-has borne
the principal burden of these
costs. State and local financial
resources have been woefully
inadequate at least since the
end of massive federal
subsidies in the early 1980s.
For decades, local government
has charged land developers
for a part of the cost of such
public facilities, at least with
respect to those facilities
intrinsic to the development, in
the form of .subdivision
dedications and fees initiallNy
"charged" as the price of
drawing and recording the
simpler and cheaper
subdivision plat.
Currently, new residential or
commercial growth connects
to or uses the existing
infrastructure without paying
their fair share of the costs of
building these facilities or for
the increased capacity needed
to serve their needs. In order
to shift the burden of
providing increased services to'
new development, impact fees
were established. ..
Impact fees are payments
made by new development to
offset impact on capital cost of


providing public services and
infrastructure. Their common
characteristics are that 1) they
are charged only to new
development, 2) they are
standardized fees as opposed
to negotiated payments, and 3)
they are designed and used to
fund capital improvements
needed to serve the growth.
Impact fees are commonly
used to shift a share of the
costs of growth to new
development while
maintaining levels of service
in growing communities.
Most metropolitan areas of
Florida charge impact fees
with Bradford County and the
city of Starke being notable
exceptions.
Even though the funds for
capital improvements and
public facilities are
constructed with impact fees,
the new facilities must
"adequately" benefit the new
development which paid the
fee. Therefore, by earmarking
fees collected into separate
accounts apart from general
funds and spending those
funds reasonably quickly, local
governments can construct
facilities that are useful to the
developer paying the fee. That
typically means the newly
constructed facilities are near
the new development. This
requires local governments to
create "zones" in which
needed public facilities %\ ill be
constructed with funds derived
through impact fees.

MESS
Continued from p. 1A
County commissioners were
willing to listen to Mintz, but
said animal control is ultimately
the city's responsibility now.
Commissioner Ross Chandler
said if the city wants to make a
different arrangement, that
needs to come during the budget
planning process.
Mintz' appearance before the
county commission cost him his
position as animal control
officer. City Manager Ken,
Sauer confirmed the next day
that Mintz no longer worked for
the city.
Mintz and his wife, ilris, had
been critical of the animal
control program prior to him
becoming the city's animal
control officer. Sauer explained
the decision to hire him as a way
to show Mintz "what we're up
against" and said he had hoped
doing so would pave the way to
a "reasonable solution."
Sauer said he spoke to Mintz
and: other employees the. dpy.
before the county commiTAsWr,,;

conversation, which at times
was a screaming match, ended
with all parties agreeing to work

together toward a solution.
"I said we can work to an
equitable solution on this, but I
need your cooperation. I don't
need to be butting heads with
you all the time," Sauer said.
, The city has tried to make pet
adoption more high profile, and
a local veterinarian advertises
an available animal almost
weekly, but even so the number
of animals available for
adoption far exceeds current
demand.
Veterinarian Linda Ricker of
Bradford Pet Care Hospital
helps select an animal for
advertisement each week,
examining it to make sure it is
adoptable, and she offers a
complimentary 'visit in her
office once the pet is adopted to
follow "up with vaccination and
deworming.
This week's advertisement
features three puppies, she said.
After a pet is initially examined,
it must be isolated until

adoption. In this case, isolating
the chosen puppy on a cement
floor with no bedding would
have resulted in its freezing to
death. There is no climate
control other than a ceiling-
mounted heat lamp that is too
far away to provide warmth..
"Their only warmth is each
other," said Ricker.
Rather than risk a puppy
dying from exposure, Ricker
took all three puppies to her
own kennel where they will
remain until adopted.
She said the city needs to look
to someone with experience
when developing the standards
its animal control and pet
adoption programs will be built
on. Some of the suggestions
from a plan she worked on have
been implemented, but others
have not. She said she thinks the
people of Bradford County
would be appalled if they.knew
what was happening with
animal control.

"My philosophy is that I'm
going to try to save one animal
at a time," said Ricker.
Sauer said he was trying to
work with Alachua County to
transfer some of the city's
animals to their facility, which
is a no-kill shelter. He said he
was working with another group
that could help the city raise
funds to build a better facility.
In the city's current budget,
however, he said there were no
funds to perform that work.
"We have to make do with
what we've got," said Sauer. "I

agree we need to have a better
facility, but I don't think it's by
any stretch of the imagination
inhumane."
Mintz disagrees. He said he
took the job to try to improve
the situation, not because he
needed it, but has lost sleep over
the severity of conditions at the
animal control facility 'and his
and his wife's attempts to find a
solution.


"You've never stood at the
end of the table when they're
shoving dead animals off in
there that they just got through
killing," Mintz told the county
commission. "Maybe I care
more about animals than a lot of
people do, but I challenge each
one of you to go down there and
look at that place. It's a dump!"

25 get to shop with cops


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
Last week, 25 lucky young
people from Starke schools
filed into the Subway restaurant
at the Wal-Mart Supercenter
where they were served
doughnuts and cookies and
heard Starke police Lt. Barry'
Warren announce that each
could comb the store with $100
to buy almost anMihing they
wanted.
It was an exciting moment
for-those 25, but-not as exciting
as when the carts were lined up .
and police officers and school
board members took groups. of
five and began the shopping
spree. :"


It was a first-ever event,
although Starke Police Chief
Gordon Smith, hopes to expand
it in future years. Smith
explained his department has
used community grants from
Wal-Mart for a number of
purposes in the past, but he and
his officers wanted to try
something different this year.
"Every year in our business
we see kids that don't have
. anything," Smith said. "It
seems we've got more than our
share for a community our
size."
It was Wal-Mart manager
Brian Jackson who told Smith
about Shop with a Cop, a
program in which grant funds
are allocated to kids who


literally go shopping ;,with a.
cop.
The schools were able to put
together a list of kids, identified
not just by need, but by
improved performance,
whether academic or
behavioral. The grafit' funded
most of the dollars kids were
able to spend, with the schools
and individuals makiiig p the
difference.
While the toy department,
was the first stop for most of the
younger students, some; older:
students shopped for more
practical items like clothing.
Some students were even using
their allocation to purchase
gifts for family members.
"What I was more impressed


by is when you have a kid that
took her doll and put her doll
back to buy something for her
mom," said Smith. "When they
had the choice to pick anything
they wanted to for themselves,
they got something for
someone else."
For an event organized at the
last minute, things went
smoothly.
"It worked out real well,"
Smith said. "I've had people
call from the community and
ask, 'What can we do next year
to make it better?'"
In addition to including more
kids, Smith said he would like
the event to include schools
outside of Starke in the future.

County selects priority roads


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

With the monumental task
of paving Meng Dairy Road
(SE 109' Street) completed,
the county commission is
reviving a road paving priority
list from 2003 with a couple of
additions.
The total cost of paving all
nine roads is -estimated at
N,$3.68 million. County
manager Jim Crawford said
the estimate was kept high to
account for high fuel costs,
which has made road paving,
along with everything, else,


more expensive.
The county has around $1.37
million to pave roads, so a plan
to pave which roads and when
was needed. Crawford
considered three alternatives,
selecting one that would pave
six of the nine roads for an
estimated $1.36 million.
The nine roads on the list
include Wilson Road (SE 150th
Street), Luke Road (SE 28th
Avenue), Rising Road (NW
180th Street), 'Wiley Kelley
,Road (SW 161st Street),
Madera Street (SE 44h Street),
SE 35th Street, Marklee

attended the 2005 Florida:
Democratic Conference held
Dec., 9-11 in Lake Buena
Vista; They heard
presentations and spoke with.
the two Democratic
candidates for governor, Jim
Davis and Rod Smith.
Both candidates told
enthusiastic supporters of their
stands on. issues such as the
FCAT, education, opposition
to drilling for oil in the Gulf
off Florida's beaches, care for
the elderly and protection of
Social Security.
They also heard from and
spoke. to the Democratic
candidates for statewide,
offic.es. Skip Campbell,
Democratic candidate for
attorney general, stressed his
experience as an attorney and
the need for an .attorney
general who has the courage
to stand up to special interests
and protect Floridians. Alex
Sink, Democratic candidate
for chief financial officer for
Florida, emphasized her
experience as the head of Bank
o Americ4a rjLj_;r Eric
peland, Democratic
cididate for commissioner of.,
agriculture and consumer
services, pointed out the need
for a stronger advocate for the
consumer in that office.

Street), Elixson Chip Mill
Road (NW 84th Avenue) and
SE 49th Avenue. Of those, SE
35th, NW 84th, and SE 49th are
new to the list. SE 35th Street
was added to the priority list
by resolution in 2004. More
recently, the commission has
discussed the need tp pave the
other two roads as well.
Of those, all but three can be
funded in the current cycle.
Rising Road and Wiley Kelley
Road, which by themselves
total $2 million, will become
top priority in the 2006-07
cycle. SE 49h will also wait.
To keep costs down, the
entire length of Wilson Road
won't be paved, as the cost
approaches half a million
dollars.. For $200,000,
however, the county will 'be
able to pave Wilson from
where pavement now ends to
C.R. 230A.
Crawford said determining
the priority of the county's dirt
roads is a difficult thing...
Improving the level of 'service,.'
is necessary in every- case, but
it's just not possible to address
all of them at once.

Before you drink and drive this holiday season,
consider the consequences: financial penalties,
loss of your driver's license, destruction of your
vehicle, injury, death or responsibility for the injury
or death of another. It's a no-win situation. During
the holiday season and throughout the year, show
appreciation and respect for the health and
happiness of yourself and others. Choose a
designated driver when attending a party and,
when hosting a party, be sure to supply non-
alcoholic beverages for guests who are driving.

SFCC
economics
associate VP
retires
'Associate Vice President of
Economic Development Fran
Holm caps 17 years of service
at Santa Fe Community
College (SFCC) as she retires
this month. Holm has earned a
reputation for leadership in
technical programs,
development of grants,
knowledge of workforce
matters and ability to create
partnerships.
Holm began her career at
Santa Fe in 1988 as
coordinator of statewide testing
for postsecondary vocational
programs.
"My economic development
emphasis began in 1991 in my
position as director of SFCC's
collaborative grant with local
businesses and economic
development agencies to launch
the Tech Prep Education
initiative in Alachua and
Bradford counties," said Holm.
David Edwards, director of
Career and Technical Education
for the Alachua County Public
Schools, said that Holm has
been a leader in the Bradford
and Alachua County school
systems consortium.
"Alachua County Public
Schools has over 200
articulation agreements with
Santa Fe Community College
that provide unparalleled
opportunities for students to
truly take advantage of the K-
20 system that Florida has
developed," said Edwards; "Ms.
Holm was instrumental in
setting up these agreements."
Holm said her greatest
satisfaction came from working
with dedicated professionals at
Santa Fe, school districts, other
community colleges, business
partners, advisory committees
and economic development
agencies.
"My proudest achievement
has been serving students and
our community by offering
more innovative educati6iial

BC school
board member
shares his
holiday hobby

By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer

Behind the walls of his
house in Graham, the Bradford
County School Board
chairman has a hidden
hobby...a hidden holiday
house hobby.
James Watson and his wife,
Joan, have been collecting
Department 56's Original
Snow Village ceramic pieces
for the last 17 years.
The hobby first started on a
trip to Orlando. Watson saw a
village house on display, and
said, "I just had to have it."
After approximately 250
purchases, later, Watson has
quite a collection of village
structures. Another 600 pieces
are accessories, such as a
police car with working lights,
Elvis' pink Cadillac, the
Budweiser Clydesdales, and
Santa's sleigh guided by eight
miniature reindeer.
When asked how much
mbney he has spent on the
display over the last 17 years,
Watson said, "I'm scared to
add it up."
Each village piece averages
about $50 to $70, though, they
can be as high as $135. As you
can see, it is a hobby that
Watson has put a lot into.
The Original Snow Village
collection started in 1976 and
will celebrate its 30th year in
2006. Through his searches at
estate sales and while on trips,

IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW
My Prayers have all been
answered, I've finally arrived.
The healing that had been delayed
has now been realized.
No one's in a hurry here, there are
no schedules to keep. We're all
enjoying Jesus just sitting at
His feet:
Ifyou could see me now,
I 'm walking streets of gold.
Ifyou could see me now, I'm
standing tall and whole.
If you could see me now, you'd
know I'd seen His face.
If you could see me now,
you'd know the pain's erased.
You wouldn't want me to ever leave
this place, if only you could
see me now,
My light and'iemtpoari trials have
worked out for my good. To know it
brought Him glory, when we
misunderstood.
Though we had our sorrows,
they can never compare.
What Jesus has in store for us,
no language can share.
Ifyou could see me now, I'm in no
morepain. Ifyou could see me now,
the shortness of breath no longer
remains. Ifyou could see me noiv,
my legs are both brand new.
Ifyou could see me now, you'dfeel
the same way too! You wouldn't
want me to ever leave this place,

I just want to tell you
You still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders
Above all the crowd.
Keep trying each moment
To stay in His grace
I came here before you
To help set your place
You don't have to be
Perfect all the time
He forgives you the slip
Ifyou continue to climb.

In a new special way.

E-iITORiAL


I-ETTERS TO THETDITOR


Legislators discover their conscience


Deep in their hearts, Florida
legislators have known since early
statehood that accepting gifts from
lobbyists, even small gifts such as
meals, drinks, and trinkets, is wrong
and leads to much larger possibilities
for the politician being
owned by .the gift
giver. The
acceptance of gifts
by legislators has,
however, become b
a way of life in
Tallahassee, and
the average
Florida voter had
given up hope the
subtle bribery
would ever end,
barring a moral
renaissance
among legislators.
That renaissance has arrived just in
time for the Christmas ,season, and
Florida voters are the recipients of an
outstanding Christmas present
courtesy of Florida lawmakers. Both
House and Senate have passed a bill
to eliminate gift-giving to legislators
by lobbyists, and Governor Jeb Bush
has announced he will sign the
measure. It will become effective Jan.
1,2006.
Senate President Tom Lee, R-"
Brandon' who supported a revision of
lobbying largesse to legislators was
disappointed early in the year when
his efforts to limit gift-giving by
lobbyists was defeated, but the
rejection only made him and other
legislators of like nind redouble their
efforts in eliminating the custom..
With the governor's signature,
Florida will have the most stringent
statute in the nation prohibiting- gift-
giving by lobbyists, and only one of


two states having similar laws.
Rep. Marco Rubio, R-West Miami,
observed, "Perception in politics is as
important as reality." This astute
observation should be framed and
hung on the walls of every public
office in the state. Rubio's
statement parallels a
comment by Julius
Caesar some
2,000 years ago:
'"Even Caesar's
wife must live
above suspicion."
Caesar made the
comment while
divorcing his
second wife,
Pompeia, who was
reportedly having an
affair with Publius
Cludius, even though
Caesar did not believe the rumors
concerning his wife. There is a lesson
here for all holders of the public trust.
Will a legislator "sell his soul" for-
the price of a meal? I should hope not,
but it will place his name on'a list of
those who will accept small favors, Ia
sure sign his.conscience isn't cluttered
with small things. Small gifts, even
meals, are favors, and favors are
expected to be returned at some time
in the future, and lobbyists have long
memories.
Thanksgiving Day 2005 is gone, but
that'doesn't mean we can't recognize,
and be thankful for "small favors." In
fact, the Christmas season may be an
excellent time to give thanks for
legislators who have chosen the high
ground on a moral question. It's the
first step in a long journey to restore
faith in government.
By Buster Rahn, Editorial Writer


The true
spirit of
giving
Dear Editor:
I saw yet another special on
television last night that
depicted the plight of homeless
people across America.
Again, the feeling of
helplessness was over-
whelming. There are billions of
dollars every year earmarked for
charitable contributions,
however, very little ever makes
it to the place it. is really
needed homeless people in
our very own cities.
Less than 8 percent of all
American charitable
contributions are given to
homeless .shelters and soup
kitchens. While the rich and
famous are gathering in concert
halls to give to their favorite
charities, with which they are
already deeply involved, it
seems that Americans will step
over the truly needy to give
thousands, sometimes hundreds
of thousands of dollars to
huge, seemingly uncontrolled
charities.
Some of these charities
spend so much money on their
own costs of maintaining
themselves that very' little
actually gets to the root of
their charity.
In addition, my research
shows that over 50 percent of
the homeless in America are
U.S. Veterans and disabled
American veterans. It is
outrageous that we don't start
in our own neighborhoods by
feeding and housing people
who are truly helpless.
Sometimes they are in that
situation because of
circumstances that are out of
their control.
Why then, as supposedly
civilized people, do we ignore
them, avoid eye contact for fear
of giving, and change to the


other side of the street to avoid
them? One very explanative
word comes to mind ...
selfishness.
I've spent a lot of my life as
an over the road truck driver.
One Christmas day, I was
"stranded" in northern Georgia
waiting to unload after the
holiday. I heard a man's voice
come over the CB radio in my
truck which said, "If any of
you drivers in the truck stop
are stuck for the holidays, my
wife and kids and I would like
to invite you to Christmas
dinner at our house."
Normally, I would never get
in a van with a stranger like
that, but there were six of us
drivers who wanted to go, and'
something in the man's
message and voice told me to
trust him. I think it was God
telling me it was OK to go.
Within fivb minutes we were
at his housetand were met by
his family and some of his
neighbors who had pitched in
to help. We had a fine dinner,
with all- the trimmings. Even
though we were from several
different races, we all soon
realized that there truly is only
one race of people on this
earth, the human race.
I will never forget that
Christmas dinner or the true
.love of the people who shared
their home and family with me
so many years ago.
Please share this spirit with
someone who needs you this
Christmas.
I belong to an association
called the All American
Trucking Asspoeation (AATA)
and I would 'like 'toi ihvite
anyone who wants to help the
homeless right here i 'North
Florida this Christmas Season
to give to the AATA Charities
Foundation. This would be one
good way of sharing with
those who most need us this
Christmas and in the days
ahead. You can reach the


AATA Charities Foundation
on the web at
http://www.loadmytruck.com/aat
acharities.asp
or e-mail them at
memberservices@loadmytruck.c
om for questions.
If you have a church group
or another local charity that can
help feed people in our area
this Christmas, please donate
time, supplies, money, or just
love to them.
Two suggestions are Lake
Area Ministries in Keystone
Heights, (352) 473-2846, and
the Bradford Ecumenical
Ministry Food Pantry in
Starke, (.904) 964-3984.
We have hundreds of people
right here in Bradford and Clay
counties who need help. If even
half of us gave $1 a month that
we knew would feed or house
needy people in our area, the
need would be eradicated.
Please .give this holiday
season to someone who will
never forget his or her
"Favorite Christmas
Experience." G o;

The history of gift-giving at
Christmas dates back to the Magi
bringing gifts to the Christ child when
he was 13 days old, right?
Not so according to the
history of Christmas.
The Christmas
season as we ',
know it is an .' _.
A m erican '.'.
. invention dating
back to the late
19th century and '
becomes more
commercial each year "' "'
as retailers use the
season to move
merchandise.
But even in its
commercial form,
our custom of "
celebrating
Christmas in a
material way doesn't '
negate the gratification
of giving gifts to those we
love, or, in some cases, to
those we don't love but perhaps owe
for some reason. In its purest form,
perhaps we give because we
appreciate the good things that have
come our way during the year and
wish to acknowledge them by giving
to others, to children and/or the less
fortunate.
Sometimes our gift-giving isn't
prompted by love but out of a self-
perceived obligation, such as giving
to a business associate or
remembering someone that gave us a?
gift in a prior year. We can discount
our motives in those cases as being
self-serving. Employers giving to
employees is different. The employer
recognizes each worker as a
contributing factor in a successful
business year.
Some Starke churches have- an
innovative way of ensuring gifts to


children who may otherwise have a
cheerless holiday. Families and
friends submit the names of children
in need, along
t, with personal
.-. -.-. information such
as sex, age,
\\ants, etc, and distribute
the listing to a participating
S church. The information is
i transferred to a paper angel,
with the name replaced by a
number to provide
anonymity, and the angel is
i hung on a tree, hence the
name Angel Tree.
f Church members pick
&':- an angel from the tree,
and buy gifts for the child
and bring them to the
/ church for distribution
throughout the community.
Church members
14* responded generously,
\ bringing a feeling of
satisfaction to the giver and
cheer for the recipient, -who
otherwise might not have received a
Christmas gift. The front of the
sanctuary in one Starke church was
filled last Sunday, and that was
replicated throughout the city,
providing niore gifts this Christmas
than were received throughout the
county not so many years ago.
Americans are the most generous
people on earth, with Christmas
giving coming on top of record giving
in the past few months following
worldwide disasters. But then, our
economy allows us the ability to share
with the less-fortunate, and we should
be thankful, rather than boastful.
We wish you Merry Christmas and
hope that the New Year will be the
best one yet, but not as good as the
ones to follow.

The Starke Kiwanis Club
will soon be selling tickets for
home-smoked ribls in an effort
to raise money to fully endow
a scholarship program that
will assist two Bradford
County. young people each
year.
According to Fundraising
Chairman Steve Denmark, the
club will be trying to raise a
total of $20,000 over the next
three years.
The money will be invested,
along with money the club
has already raised, and the
interest earned each year on the
investment will fund two
$1,000 Santa Fe Community
College scholarships per year.
Denmark said numerous
fundraising projects are being
planned over the course of the
next three years, with the
smoked rib sale being the
first.
The sale is set for 11 a.m.
to 2. p.m. on Saturday, Jan.
21, in the parking lot of
Community State Bank on
U.S. 301 in Starke.
"We're going to try to pre-
sell most of the tickets," said
Denmark. '-'There will be some
ribs available that day to sell,
but most of the ribs will be
there for ticket-holders to pick
up.
The Key Club (Kiwanis for
students at Bradford High
School), the Builder's Club
(Kiwanis for students at
Bradfbrd Middle School) and
the AKtion Club (Kiwanis for
the mentally handicapped at
Arc) will also be selling
tickets. $3 per ticket sold by
the youth or mentally
handicapped will be paid into
the coffers of their respective
clubs.
Tickets will go on sale after
Christmas. A whole slab of

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you

from all of us at Jackson's!

At.this time of year our attention .is focused on Christmas. On behalf of the stockholders, officers,
directors and employees of Jackson Building Supply, I would like to thank you all for your support.
We realize that without you and more importantly, without the Grace and Mercy of Almighty God, we
could not exist as a business or even as individuals. Because you have been so good to us and likewise
God has been, we feel that we need to share with you what we believe Christmas is all about.
Christmas is surely a time of giving, as is evidenced by the giving or exchanging of many gifts.
When we think about Christmas giving we need to remember, "For God so loved the world, that he
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have everlasting
life," (John 3:16). God gave that we might believe on His Son and have a place In Heaven. Jesus paid
our sin debt and rose again to show that His payment was enough. However, if we reject what He
gave, we have a place in Hell.
Christmas needs to be a time for receiving, for no one can give a gift unless it is received. The Bible
says that the Gift of God, His Son, Jesus, "came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as
many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God. Even to them that believe
on his name; Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of
God." (John 1:11-13)
Christmas is a time of happiness, as evidenced on the face of many. Happiness depends on happenings,
and can be short lived to gain real Joy and Peace this Christmas, why not right now receive the
greatest gift ever given, The Lord Jesus Christ? Jesus loves us and invites us to believe in Him. If you
have not made this commitment, you should right now receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. If
you have just now received Him...you can know the real Joy of Christmas for the first time. For those
of us who already know Him may we be drawn to a closer walk this Christmas.
We thank God for the opportunity He has given us to serve your building supply and hardware needs
-we also thank Him for allowing us to share Jesus Christ with you. After all, without Christ there
would be no Christmas.
Marc Jackson, President

A Starke woman donates a live-saving gift to her sister


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
A- Starke woman has known
for a year and a half just what
would be the perfect Christmas-
.gift for her sister.
Danielle Warren was able to
.give that early present to her
sister in August.
Her gift was a new kidney.
Linda Stolfo, Warren's
sister, kidneys had been
deteriorating over time. The
doctors couldn't determine the
exact cause, but think it may
have been from an
undiagnosed kidney infection
as a child.


Linda Stolfo
about her decision to give her
sister a kidney.
"They were very thorough
on everything they check," she
said.
If any small irregularity
showed up on a test, Warren
had to see her doctor and have
even more tests.
Warren said she had no
doubt about donating her
kidney, but her family kept her
sister's condition a secret from.
her in the beginning because
she had the youngest child to
raise. If something went
wrong, it would leave her 4-
year-old daughter, Sarah,
without a mother. -
Warren's husband Barry, a
lieutenant at the Starke Police
Department; said he was not
concerned about his wife
donating an organ either. His
father received a heart
transplant six years ago, and
his uncle received a kidney
too.
"If they could get helped by
others, I'm glad my wife was
able to help someone," he said.
The time between evaluating
Warren's kidney and the actual
surgery took approximately a
year and a half. This was
because Warren's medical

Spiller, who was the Class

sister lives.
Warren went on to have the
surgery in Miami on Aug. 3,
and the operation lasted three


to four hours. She was in the
hospital four days.
Warren's coworkers and
supervisors' at New River
Correctional Institution and
her husband's coworkers were


very supportive of her choice
for organ donation. They let
her have days off whenever
she needed them, she said, and
even let Barry off when he

Starke resident Danielle Warren, seated with
her 4-year-old daughter, Sarah, donated a
kidney to her sister on Aug. 3.

Continued from p. 1C
day, but that everyone should
One of Stolfo's kidneys
shriveled up beyond use, so
she was living on one.
Even though she was under
constant monitoring by her
doctors, Stolfo's other kidney
began to fail.:-
She was put on dialysis and.
became one of the 17,998
patients undergoing the
treatment in Florida, according
to the National Kidney
Foundation of Florida.
For three years, she had
dialysis treatments, during
which her blood was cleaned
of additional wastes and
liquids by a machine hooked
up to her body.
Stolfo's and Warren's older
sister, Diane, was going to
donate her kidney, but it would
have taken years longer to
evaluate the health of her
kidneys.
-This is when Warren,
stepped in to see-if she was a
match.
The proces's-" was,: \eiy
intensive. Tissue samples and
the size of the organs were
compared.
Warren underwent tests that
seemed like they would never
end. She had heart scans,
blood work, lab work and even
had to talk to a psychologist
do that anyway. Her doctors
will also compare her lab work
each year to the one done
before she gave up her kidney


to see if she is still healthy.
She also said she realizes
now that the medical staff in
Starke is very competent.
Being from South Florida, she
was a little worried that a small
town like Starke would not
know what to do for a kidney
donation.
She said the staff of the
Shands Medical Group,
Carolyn Hayes and Clay
Gilhooly were all very helpful.
"If they didn't know an
answer, they would call and
find out," she. said. "They were
very caring."
Now, Stolfo has to have lab
work done every two weeks,
but this will lesson with time,
Warren said. She will take
antirejection medicine for the
rest of her life.
Barry said it did not take
long to notice the difference in
his sister-in-law.
When Stolfo was on dialysis
she could not be as active as
she wanted because she would
have dialysis appointments-
.three-days a week for four to
five hours.
Her appearance one week
-'"aftet, thL, s.rger=* ZqLS
dramatically different. Life had
returned to her face.
Warren said she is glad
when she calls to talk. to her
sister and she is not home.
"She's not confined t0o nonic
anymore," Warren said. "She
has the energy to get out and
do things."
While Warren's gift to her
sister was a little early for
Christmas, the holidays are a


perfect time to sign up to be an
organ donor:
"There are so many out there
who need it and not enough
willing to give it," she said.
Warren, who became an
organ donor after her father-in-
law had his transplant,. said "I
try to encourage people to
donate organs. You can affect
so many lives."
Warren tries to dispel the
myths about organ donation as
well.
Some people told her she
was risking her on life by
giving away her kidney,
leaving only one to live with
for the rest of her life.
"If something goes wrong
with one, it'll go wrong with
both, so I didn't look at that as
a risk," she said.
Warren's hospital bills
associated with her organ
donation were free as well, and
the process was made easier by
a simple form she filled out
once and then gave to every
hospital or doctor's office she
went to.
The number of people
needing kidneys alone is
expected to double, to 100,000
by 2010, so if you're interested
in becoming an organ donor,
declare this on your driver's
license and discuss it with your
family. A wallet-sized organ
donor card can be printed from

National Guard helps Mississippi in Katrina recovery


Members of the
202" RED HORSE
and the Florida
Guard's 269th
Engineer Company
assist in the effort

By STAFF SGT. THOMAS
KIELBASA
Florida National Guard
Public Affairs
The turtle crawled slowly
across North Beach Boulevard,
each methodical step over the
warm pavement bringing it
closer to St. Louis Bay on the
other side of the street.
Behind it was only
wreckage-the shattered
remains of bay-front homes
torn apart by Hurricane
Katrina months ago -and the
way forward was across two
lanes of semi-deserted road.
Occasionally a pickup truck or
car would speed by the turtle
during its mid-morning march
to the water; each time the


turtle would freeze, duck its
head inside its shell and wait
until the road was quiet again,
Eventually, a motorist
stopped, picked up the small
animal and carried it the few
last feet before dropping it
unceremoniously into the bay.
As the motorist pulled away
-a few ragged fragments of
Cajun music drifting from the
driver's open window -the
turtle floated and paddled
away from the shore.
Like the turtle's painfully
slow march across North
Beach Boulevard, the people
living in the ruins of this Gulf
Coast community are slowly
recovering from the ravages of,
the 2005 hurricane season.
When the Category 3
Hurricane Katrina made
landfall near the
Mississippi/Louisiana border
on Aug. 29, its powerful winds
and storm surge
damaged-and in some cases
completely decimated-the
homes, schools and businesses
in Bay St. Louis and
neighboring Waveland. After,


n Saturday, December 17th, 2005 we lost our
father, Wai ne Alldredge. He was a good man He
would do anyt ing to help anyone. He went out of his
way to help many people in this town for most of his life.
He raised his family here and was a business owner tlat
took meticulous pride in his work. He was the best (
around in his prime and went above and beyond in his
job, at no extra charge. He sure did love his wife and us
kids. He told us so every time we saw him. He had been
through some rough times in the past couple of years
with his health, but over the past few monthU he was
doing better and getting stronger. He was even'going to
build himself a race car, so he started to collect parts. He
bought a nice set of racing heads from a local race car
owner. Boy he sure was proud of them. He showed them
to us last weekend: He was going to pat them on his race
motor. Ourfather loved racing He built and drove his
own race car overat the old dirt track in Lake City back
in his younger days. We were just kids at the.time but we
really loved going and watching him race, even though
he never won. I took him to that old track a few weeks
ago and we watched Adam Wilson, Joe's son, win his
race and we saw a great late model race. We had a great
time at that race, just me and him.
Sunday morning as me and vty-brothers were
wandering around his shop trying tofigure out what all
needed tobe done to prepare for hs funeral, we realized
that his shop wasn't the way he left.it. Someone tad
broken in there and taken his heads. I justwant to let
the person that stole those heads know that those are
special heads. Tlwse are the heads that were to top off
ourfather's last race motor, his dream motor, which now
will never be built. You see, those were part of our
father's dream just like the block and the pistons, the
rear end he has on order, each a part of that dream. So to
the person that stole them please keep this in mind,
whether you took them to put on your own dream motor
or to sell so you could get another fix, they were once
part of our father's dream. So now we get to not only deal
with the loss of our father, but also the disrespect shown
to him by a thief We are not going to trv to hunt you
down because we do not need the hea s. We are not
building our dream motors yet. but someday we will,
and we will remember our father's dream motor that
never got built. '
To all the people that befriended our father through the
good times and bad, we thank you from the bottom of our
hearts. All he wanted was to be liked and have friends.
From talking to many of you these past couple ofdays,
he made his rounds to see you. Thank you for taking
time out of your busy days to share a few minutes with.
him. It meant the world to him. His last couple of
months here were happy ones. For the first time in years,
he was painfree and hle was able to enjoy life again.
Thank you for the memories.

RED STARLING BRADFORD RESIDENT
352-485-2197 352-745-6503


more than two months of
assistance from local, state and
federal agencies, the residents
are slowly putting their
community back together,
A few blocks away from the
turtle crossing, two Bay St.
Louis residents were trying to
expedite the rebuilding
process: plumber Ken Monti
was sifting through bricks and
debris of a bay-front home,
attempting to locate water and
sewer lines so that homeowner
Daniel Laitinen could place a
trailer on the lot where his
house once stood.
The 1,700 square-foot house
with the nice view of Bay St.
Louis was now little more than
a foundation surrounded by
reminders of a pre-Katrina life:
a broken cordless phone, dirty
floor tiles, dumbbells, a
camera lens and pieces of a
clock.
Monti, a lifelong resident of
the area who installed the
original plumbing in 'the house
in the late 1960s, admitted he
was having trouble
recognizing the property. Like
most homes along the bay
front, this one had been
reduced to a cement slab,
"Boy, I've lived here all my
life and I'm still confused
about where these people
live," Monti said, looking at
the mess.
Laitinen chatted with Monti
about the force of Hurricane
Katrina and how the wind and
water washed away most of his
possessions, including ladders,
fishing gear and a tool shed.
One of Laitien's prized
possessions was found more
than a mile away from his
home after the hurricane, he
said.
"I was going down Dunbar
(Avenue) and there was a
minnow bucket 15 feet up in a
tree,'" Laitinen said in a thick
Gulf Coast accent. "I told my
wife, 'That looks like my
minnow bucket.' 'They got a

RECOVER
Continued from p. 3C

students returned to classes in
more than 60 portable
classroom units placed 'on
school property.
Superintendent of Schools
Dr. Kim Stasny explained the
hurricane recovery in her
school district was a slow
process, but without the
assistance of outside agencies
they would be far from ready
to let students back into
classes.
The Mississippi Emergency
Management Agency noted'
that Hurricane Katrina caused
damage to 303 schools in the
Gulf Coast region of the state. .
During a ceremonial. ribbon
cutting for the reopening of
North Bay Elementary, Stasny
singled out members of the
Florida Air National Guard's
202nd RED HORSE unit for its
work with repairing the
schools.
"It %as a tremendous effort
on their part, and I really mean
this, because we wouldn't have
had this site here today if it
wasn't for them clearing this
site," Stasny said.
Members of the 2021'd RED
HORSE and the Florida Army
National Guard's 269t1.
Engineer Company helped
establish a 500-person base
camp for relief efforts in Bay
St. Louis, prepared sites for the
portable school buildings,
operated lift stations for sewers
throughout the city, maintained
air conditioning systems and
helped remove hurricane
debris.
According to the,
Department of Homeland
Security, more than 20,000
National Guard Soldiers and
Airmen were deployed to
assist with Hurricane Katrina
relief operations in the Gulf
Coast region.
Senior Master Sgt. Jeff
Lindsey, one of the three
remaining RED HORSE
Airmen on duty in Mississippi.
on Nov. 7, explained that he
has seen a gradual change in


the area since he was deployed'
to Bay St. Louis on Sept. 3.
:"You see people smiling
;-now and some businesses are
starting to open back up,"
Lindsey said. "In the past two,
months you've seen more
people coming back. This was
great this morning to see the'
* kids coming back. We haven't
seen too many kids around
heree"
The 17-year veterann of the
Florida National Guard agreed
with some area residents that
the recovery process; would xe
Sslow.
""There's going to be damage
here for years tocome, but i 's
starting to get back to norma ,"
Lindsey said.
Lind'sey said the RED.
HORSE will maintain a tvwo-
person team in Mississippi
until mid-December in order lto
assist with ongoing Hurricane
Katrina recovery missions.

Watson Center addition wi


open doors in January


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

It has been quite an
inaugural year for the Santa Fe
Community College Watson
Center in Keystone Heights.
Enrollment has doubled
since the center opened in
January and this coming
January will see the opening of
a 7,146 square-foot addition
that will provide more
classrooms, a computer lab
and, eventually, an organic
chemistry lab.
"It's fantastic," Bob
Wolfson, director of the
Watson Center, said of the
$1.2 million project. "This
(center) has just grown so
quickly. We've only been here
a year."
Wolfson said additional
space was needed for students
taking evening courses and the
new building will provide that
in-the form of six classrooms.
The building will also
include a computer lab that
students should be able to
access at any time when the
center is open. The center
already has one computer lab,
butf Students' use of it is
limited since computer classes
are-taught there.
*'.Ve'llie able to have that


(new) lab open most of the
time," Wolfson said.
The chemistry lab-which
will not be ready for the start
of the spring semester, but will
be open later in the year-will
allow the center to offer
classes in fields such as
biology, chemistry and
anatomy and physiology that
students currently have to
drive to Gainesville to take.
"Right now we're not able to
offer any of those science
classes that have a lab attached
to them," Wolfson said.
The chemistry lab's opening
will provide Wolfson with one
more exciting moment since
the Watson Center opened.
Since that time, Wolfson has
witnessed enrollment increase
from just over 100 students to
197-filling 367 seats-this
past fall semester. The center
already has 367 seats filled for
the upcoming spring semester.
Approximately 30 different
courses will be offered in the
spring. Students will continue
to register'until the semester
begins Monday, Jan. 9.
Wolfson said the Watson
Center has received an "open-
armed welcome" from the
community and he encourages
anyone in the community who
can teach to do so.
