Housing starts


strong in 2005


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer -- -
Housing starts in Bradford County
shot up in 2005, overshadowing the
numbers for several preceding years,
while the county's largest
commercial. project was completed in
a matter of months.
The county's Building and Zoning
Department permitted 106 new single
family homes as of Dec. 22, topping
last year's 81 permits and even the 95
permits issued in 2003. The average
of several years before that was just
70.
The majority of 2005's homes were
built ,in unincorporated Bradford
County, but while no homes were
built in Brooker in 2004, eight were


permitted this year. Thirteen homes
were permitted in the city of Starke,
which is up three from last year.
Although more people are building
homes in Bradford County, fewer are
installing mobile homes. Installations
were down to 78 this year, compared
to 97 in 2004. Mobile home
-replacements. were relatively
unchanged: 43 in 2004, 44 in 2005.
On the commercial end of things,
17 permits were pulled in Bradford
County, eight of which were in the
city of Starke and one of which was
in Lawtey.
The largest commercial
development was not originally a part
of the city of Starke. Wal-Mart
constructed a Supercenter south of its

Schools may join

lawsuit against state


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
At the recommendation of
Superintendent Harry Hatcher, the
Bradford County School Board won't
be joining a lawsuit against the
Florida Department of Education at
this time, but that move hasn't been
ruled out for the future.
At the heart of the lawsuit, which
other school boards, including the
one in Alachua County, have joined,
are two educational movements that
have been placed at odds with each
other by DOE's decision to count
inclusion classrooms as one class


If there were a uniform for Christmas shopping, Suzy Pickett would have designed it.
She is pictured above carrying out her seasonal shopping in a Santa hat, "Ho, Ho, Ho"
earrings, a "Jingle Bells" cow sweatshirt on top of a "Moooy Christmas" cow T-shirt, and
a fanny pack to keep those credit cards close at hand.


Bradford manager, clerk discuss their

goals forth county in the new year


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
After spending time with their
families over the holiday, the county
officials were back at work -on
Tuesday.
While finishing up the last bit of
work for 2005, the county manager
and the clerk of the court shared what
they see coming in 2006 for their
offices.
Jim Crawford, the manager for
Bradford County, has a New Year's
resolution for his office and that is to
be prepared for growth in the county.
"Our biggest challenge is growth
management." he said, "and we have
to come up with a way to pay for it."
He said the largest area of growth
is in the residential sector. A number
of areas in the city of Starke and the
county will be affected by this.


As it has been in the past and is
currently, there are more new homes
than mobile home installations, he
said.
With this increase in homes and
construction, he thinks commercial
properties aimed at residents will
appear as well. He cited the Wal-Mart,
Supercenter as an example of this.
Bradford County is becoming a
more attractive place to live because
of its new businesses and its access to
the two larger cities of Jacksonville
and Gainesville where people can"
commute to work.
Because of legislation passed last
year, the county will now have to
show they have the money to support
growth and all that it will bring.
If homes and families are growing,
this means the roads are being more
highly traveled, new classrooms will
have, to be added to schools, and it


basically will affect most of the
departments the county manager
oversees, including emergency
services, solid waste and the road
department, he said.
As a way to deal with this growth,
I the county plans to implement impact
fees, possibly countywide.
This would mean for every new
,structure a fee would be charged
!based on the predicted impact it
would have on the surrounding area.
i "Most counties already have
impact fees," Crawford said..
The impact fee would be a set rate
for every new installation, whether a
mobile home, house or commercial
building. Crawford said.
The school system will even be
impacted because it may have to
report to the county with budget,
construction or transportation issues
in.the future.
See GOALS, p. 4A


instead of two.
Inclusion, or co-teaching,
classrooms are .those in which
disabled or ESE (Exceptional Student
Education) students are taught right
alongside their non-disabled
classmates by a team of two teachers.
This method seeks to reduce the'
stigma experienced by those students
when they are separated from the
general student population.
On the other hand, believing that
smaller classrooms would create
better learning environments for
students, Florida voters mandated

Contractor fined for

unsafe work conditions


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
The contractor that was hired to
construct Lawtey's sewer system and
then quit the job has been fined for
exposing workers to dangerous
working conditions;, according to the
U.S. Department of Labor's
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration.
OSHA recommended a $134,800
penalty be imposed on B.A. Wilson
Construction'following inspection of
two separate work sites in the city on
June 15 and July 27.
"During the second inspection, our
compliance officer requested that an
employee be removed from an unsafe
trench. The worker climbed out of the
trench, and moments later the wall
collapsed," said James Borders,
OSHA's Jacksonville area director.
Willful citations are issued when
employers intentionally disregard the
requirements of the Occupational
Safety and Health Act, and B.A.
Wilson received two such citations
after the July inspection. According
to OSHA, the contractor failed to


adequately slope trench walls or use a
trench protective system and failed to
provide employees with a safe way of
entering and exiting the excavation.
One willful citation was issued in.
June for failing to keep excavated
material at least two feet from the
.-edge .of a trench. Wilson also
received a serious citation-for-not
providing hard hats to employees
when they worked near excavating
machinery. According to the press
release, serious citations occur when
there is substantial probability that
death or serious physical harm could
result and that the employer knew or
should have known of the hazard.
Wilson has 15 days to contest the
proposed penalty with OSHA, but did
not return calls seeking comment
prior to press time.
The contractor quit the job
constructing Lawtey's sewer system
in September, leaving city officials
and residents angry over the
conditions of roads and property.
Wilson then sued the'city of Lawtey,
saying, in part, that the city did not
make timely payments. The city is
countersuing for breach of contract.

consumed me because I can see
all the work it will require in
planning." he said.
Crawford has taken steps to
try and ensure a smooth
transition.
"Growth for Starke is growth
Sfor : radford County, and
growth for Bradford County is
growth for Starke," Crawford
said.
Therefore, he now meets on a
weekly basis with Ken Sauer,
the manager for the city of
tarke^. -- --
"It's a total new planning
system for growth," he said.
While growth is the major
issue in the coming year, the
county manager also said that
in 2005, planning for the new
public library was completed.
The construction will, begin
after the ground breaking takes
place on January 27.
Other changes for the county
include five rural roads that will
be paved and improvements in
the area of solid waste.'.

Norman said new programs
might allow for many of the
courts' operations to become
"paperless."
"We're going to see a lot of
technology changes," he said.
A new program that may be
implemented in the new year is
CCIS.
Members of law
enforcement, judges, clerks and
other people acting in an
official capacity for the court
will be able to see a defendant's
record from one county to the
next with the click of a button.
-Norman said this is especially
helpful when the circuit judges
rotate from county to county.
This technology service will
not be available to the general
public, but they will be
impacted by it. If the courts are
able to clear matters up quickly
by researching through this
online system, the public can be
better served in other ways.
Norman said he thinks
computers in law enforcement
vehicles will be growing. This
allows law enforcement
officers to enter tickets directly
into a computer from their car.
The information would then
be sent directly to the clerk of
the c6urt's office. The office
would then be able to process
the ticket quicker.
"My goal for the office is to
meet the needs and serve the
people to benefit the people,"
he said. "It may sound unusual,
but we want to keep,being good
record keepers for the people."

Sheriff turns over excess jail fees


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

Sheriff Bob Milner ended
2005 by handing a check
worth more than $150,000
over to the county
commission.
The check represents excess
fees earned from housing out-
of-county inmates in the.
Bradford County Jail during
the 2004-05 fiscal year.
More. than $1.3 million in
inmate housing and work
release revenue was earned in
2004-05, most of which was
distributed throughout the-
budget for the sheriff's office


and the jail at it was received.
Milner held on to around
$702,000, and around
$600,000 went the county
commission to help in its
responsibility for funding
. inmate medical and jail
maintenance costs.
In the end, the sheriff had
$153,854 in excess fees to turn
over to the county
commission.
The return was accompanied
by'year-end amendments to the
sheriff's 2004-05 budget. An
additional $476,747 was spent
for personnel services,
operating expenses and capital
outlay in the sheriff's office,
taking the original $1.66


million budget to $2.14
million. For the jail, an
additional $605,480 was spent
on personnel services,
operating expenses and capital
outlay, taking the original
$1.56 million budget to $2.17
million.
The revenue to cover these
additional costs came from
grants, inmate housing revenue
and other miscellaneous
revenue sources.
A third amendment moved
$59,407 from the 2003-04 to
the 2004-05 budget. The funds
were encumbered by vehicle
purchases late in the 2004
fiscal year, but could not be
spent because the jail revenue


to cover the purchases was not
received until after the start of
FY 2005.
Housing revenue came from
three sources: the U.S.
Marshalls, Transcor and Levy "
County. With limited room to
house out-of-county inmates,
the sheriff is now housing
inmates from the .U.S.
Marshalls alone. Jail
population runs on average
200 inmates a day, Milner
said. Eighty of those are from
outside of the county. .
In November, County Clerk
Ray Norman turned $110,184
in excess fees over to the
commission, and Tax Collector
Teila Pearson turned over
$24,525.


County not ready for fight over fair dumping


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer

County Manager Jim
Crawford would like to
implement what he calls
fairness in .the way county
residents are charged for and
dispose of solid waste, but the
county commission isn't eager
to pick any fights over disposal
at county dump sites.
Among Crawford's
suggestions for improvements
at those sites was the
recommendation that a
wind shield sticker
identification system be
implemented to distinguish
between who is and who is not
allowed to take their garbage
to one of those sites., Only
those who pay the annual $75
special assessment should be
taking their 'trash to one of
those six sites, according to
Crawford.
That would exclude county -
residents who are required to
pay ,the assessment but don't
as well as those in the city of
Starke who don't pay the
assessment because the city
commission opted out of the
arrangement. Instead of .an
annual assessment, city
residents pay a monthly utility
bill for curbside pickup.
Crawford said it's difficult
for site attendants to tell who
should and should not be using
the dump -sites; and they face
harassment when they try to',
turn someone away. He
estimates that at least a third of
the garbage taken to the


Keystone Heights collection
center is from residents of
Clay or Putnam counties.
I While driver's licenses and
tags don't provide concrete
evidence that someone lives in
Bradford County, a windshield'
sticker mailed to those who
pay their special assessment
would prove -residency,
Crawford said.
"This will '- help our
attendants out there. They're
being beat around the head and
shoulders and have to call
(Solid Waste Director Donny
Wise), me, and sometimes the
sheriff over arguments there,"
said Crawford.
While Crawford saw the
sticker program as a workable
solution to unauthorized'
dumping, county
commissioners wanted to
know what it would mean to
the citizens of Starke.
Crawford said there was no
need for Starke residents to be
using a site when curbside
pickup is available. Starke City
Manager Ken Sauer agrees.
"We shouldn't be using
those things (dump sites)
anyway," Sauer said. "We've
got garbage service in town.
There's no reason. anybody.
needs to use those dump sites."
The city's waste hauler
picks up household garbage
twice a week, brush .on
Wednesday and appliances
(white goods) once a month.
As Crawford pointed ,out,
residents-outside of Starke who
pay the special assessment pay
more if they want to privately
contract with a waste hauler.


County commissioners
disagreed, saying that closing
those collection sites to city
residents would just lead to
unauthorized dumping
elsewhere, like in commercial
dumpsters or in the woods. A
lot of that sort of dumping
stopped when collection sites
were opened to everyone
Commissioner Eddie Lewis
said. Commissioner Doyle
Thomas worried that pushing
the city at all would result in
city commissioners seeking
out a new landfill.
Commissioner John Cooper
said he would rather continue.
accepting garbage, from people
who aren't paying their fair
share than create "a big
hoopla" over the issue.
With all of that said, the fate
of a windshield sticker
program Crawford proposed
depends on finding a way to
exclude dumpers from other
counties without impacting the
citizens of Starke.
Crawford also discussed
other solid waste issues. The
solid waste department has
been working to comply with
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
standards that prohibit storing
yard debris on the ground
when mixed with other trash.
He said more than $97,000 has
already been spent to cleanup
those sites. Four of the six sites
now have, containers to drop
off yard-debris.' The debris is
transported 'to 'the Ne'w River
Regional Landfill from there,
where it is chipped. Crawford
will look into the cost of

from the Starke and Keystone
Heights collection sites.
In order to standardize the
amount of debris disposed of
in a single trip, Crawford
suggested the limit be placed
at one pickup or single-axel

By Starke City Manager Ken Sauer

The impact of user -


User fees are charges-
imposed for providing extra
services above and beyond the
cost of operating and
maintaining the utility
systems. User fees have been
a significant part of public
finance for decades. Common
examples include tuition at
state colleges and universities,
athletic and other
extracurricular activity fees at
public schools, highway tolls,
public transportation charges,
and parks and recreation
facility rental fees.
User fees are assessed for
the services and on the citizens
who demand those services
and thus allow market forces
to set an economically
efficient level of services.
User fees may be an effective
method of keeping utility rates
low. For example, if a person
wishes to have their electric
meter removed while they
install a new service, the city
can charge a user fee to
remove and reinstall the meter,
thus keeping the labor costs
separate from' the 'overall
electric cost and ultimately
helping to keep the cost of
basic electric service under
control.
During the past 25 years,
many state and local
governments have reduced
reliance on taxes-especially
property taxes-and have
increased reliance on user
charges and miscellaneous
revenues. Several factors that
have contributed to this trend
include:
1. User charges should
cover the cost of the services
provided. They should not be
used to generate excess
revenues that are diverted to
unrelated programs or
services.
2. City and county officials
have few choices. Citizens in

the National League of Cities'
expect to have even more
trouble meeting their financial
needs next year. User fees are
assessed for voluntary requests
for services.
"From what I'm seeing,
people do not want service

says he is submitting a budget
that calls for a 6 percent
property tax increase. He's
also seeking a curbside
recycling fee that he says
would generate .enough
revenue to reduce the tax hike
to 4 percent.
"The fees 'cause people who
are benefiting from those
services to pay for them," he
says. "In addition, the citizens
are more comfortable with
user fees when they can see a
direct correlation between the
fee and the service.

Bradford County won't ante
u-p to help Starke pay for
damage received by an
excavator rented to perform
work clearing Alligator Creek.
Starke Mayor Steve Futch
wrote a letter to county
commissioners seeking to split
t-::e cost of the damage. While
clearing Alligator Creek, the
excavator, rented from Briggs
Equipment, lost its footing,
q flipped and fell into the creek.
i After the city was billed for
the damage, an investigation
was conducted. Futch said city
employees reported that
former county Road
Department Director Hershel
Waldron returned the
excavator to service:after it
iwas retrieved from the creek
a.nd ignored suggestions to
contact Briggs regarding the
incident.

The excavator sustained
damage to its hydraulic pump
and other parts, and the repair
costs totaled $22,913. Futch
said the city asked Briggs to
reduce the cost of the pump
and adjust the labor cost, but
the company refused.
Futch justified asking the
county for $11,456 of the
repair costs by saying this
cleaning of the creek was a
continuation of work
performed under the county's
portion of the project and that
Waldron remained in charge of
the project when the incident
took place. He said the request
was a fair and reasonable one.
The county commission
disagreed, however, and the
city's request was denied.

it was not rented by us, and it
was not our operator,"'

said. It was, in fact, a city

Hatcher said.
According to Assistant
Superintendent Rick Ezzell,
there are three classes at
Bradford High School that are
using the co-teach method, for
a total of 11 class periods.
"It's a good little program,"
Ezzell said, explaining that
ESE students are getting a
basic education in addition to
specialized attention in the
inclusion classes.
The school board was
briefed on the issue during a
workshop earlier this month.
School Board Member Bobby
Carter said he and other
members of the Florida School

decided to enter the lawsuit,
which began with Duval
County. The hope, he said, is
that all 67 Florida counties will
eventually join the suit and
resolve the issue in mitigation.
"There is merit to that,"
Hatcher said. "The lawsuit did
get us to the table to start
talking again, but there's also,
I'm sad to say, some fear of
retaliation. I just would urge us
to be cautious."
"It seems to me the state is
creating a situation where the
school boards can't comply
with what's required (by the
class-size reduction standards).
I mean, that doesn't make any
sense at all. They have to do
something," said School Board
Member Jesse Moore.
School Board Member
Vivian Chappell agreed.
"The growth is so great in
some of these surrounding
counties that they can't ,build
schools fast enough, so this
(co-teaching) is the only
choice they have, or they're
going to have teachers
outside," Chappell said.
Should it decide to do so,
joining the lawsuit would cost
the school district around
$4,000.


Volunteers are urgently needed

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region-area .


FWC see
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and the
Camp Blanding Joint Training
Center have created a proposal
that could open the south
portion of the post to hunters.
Since Sept. 11, 2001, the
lands in the Camp Blanding
Wildlife Management Area
lying south of S.R .16 have
been closed by the Department
of Military Affairs. These
lands, needed for training
exercises and troop
mobilization, are under tight
security that prohibits
recreational access under the
current hunting-format.
"This closure resulted in the
loss of all recreational access to
the south post," said Roland
Garcia, director of FWC's
North Central Region, based in
Lake City.
He said Camp Blanding and
FWC staffs have maintained
communications in an effort to
reopen the closed portions of
the area. In recent weeks, both
parties have hammered out a
concept that would reopen the
south post and restore deer-dog
hunting for the 2006-07
hunting season. The proposal
would require changes to rules
and hunting formats, including
locations of current still and
dog hunt areas and locations
where special quota hunts
would take place...
The proposal provides for
the same types and amount of
-hunting days that currently
exist for still hunting, while
adding the deer-dog hunting
'format back into the hunting
scheme.
"Camp Blanding is stiff
under heightened force
protection and will remain so
for the foreseeable future,"
'Garcia said. "This makes it
unacceptable for the public and
their equipment (including
dogs) to encroach on sensitive
areas of the post, including the
artillery impact area and the
closed portion of the post that
lies souIth of S,R ,16 and west
of D Avenue. For this reason,
it is necessary to relocate the
deer-dog hunting area from its
previous location if we are to
proceed with the reopening the
south post."
The proposal is to:
*Move the deer-dog hunting
north of S.R .16.
*Recognize that deer-dog
hunting is a more efficient
harvest method than still
shunting. There is no impact
area on the north post to serve
as a "safe haven" for deer. The
deer herd on the north post
cannot withstand the same 58-
day hunting season that
currently exists- with still

Use caution
with holiday
burning
Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging Floridians
to be cautious when engaged in
any type of outdoor burning.
The recent cold temperatures
have made frost-killed
vegetation very dry and easy to
burn meaning the potential
for wildfires has increased.
"The last two hurricane
seasons have also left us with
tons of debris including dead
trees and limbs that could be a
potential tinder box for
wildfire," Bronson said.
Outdoor burning of yard
trash is allowed in most
Florida counties, but there have
been several changes to the
outdoor burning laws in recent
months. It is no longer legal
to burn household paper
products as yard waste, and a
few of the required set back
distances have changed.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services' Division of Forestry
Oversees all outdoor burning
for the State of Florida.
"Homeowners who are
unsure how to burn legally and
safely should contact the local
office of the Florida Division
of Forestry or their nearest fire


department," said Bronson.
Since Jan 1, 2005, 2,161
Florida wildfires have burned
26,850 acres. Eighty-nine
percent of these fires were
caused by humans, including
32 percent that were
attributable to escaped debris

By just walking in you could light up a room -
No way to prepare us, God took you so soon,
You had so much more of this life left to live -
More important than that was love and happiness

You had such a presence,joyous spirit and that

Hearts are still broken, sometimes it's insane.
What do we do with all this love-pain?
We'll hold to it closely and still let love in.
And pray it's not long till we're together again.

You accomplished more in your short life than many '

Mate's Billabong: Neighborhood


tavern with Down Under style


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Mate's Billabong in Starke
offers Australian imports to
area residents-both beer and
the owner.
Although Mate grew up in
Parramatta, New South Wales,
Australia, he has lived in the
United States for the. past 30
years. His wife, Linda, is from
Ohio, but their seven-month-
old son, Cole, will- claim
Starke as his hometown.
"We're settled in Starke
now," said Mate. "We are a
part of, the community. We
have done a. lot of charity
things and plan to do more."'
Mate's Billabohg has
sponsored and cosponsored
poker runs and other events to
raise money for various
charitable efforts. The Napiers
are also working on a plan to
raise money for a college
scholarship to provide a local
young person _with- the
opportunity to continue his or
her education.
The Napiers met in Ohio.
Mate was transferred there by
the chemical company he
worked for and Linda was in
the National Guard there as an
occupational safety specialist.
Mate retired from the chemical
company and the couple came
south to get out of the cold.
Mate explained that he.grew
up where the temperatures
were more than 100 degrees on
an average day for most of the
year When -he retired,; the
couple went to Australia for a
while. -
"But home wasn't home
anymore," said Mate. His 30
years in America had made
this country "home" :but the
northern states were still too
cold for him.
One of his two daughters,
both of whom were born in.
America, lives in Orlando, so
the couple began looking at
Florida as a residence.-
Although retired, Mate is
not a person who wants to sit
home and watch television.
The Napiers began looking
jg.around for a spot-where they
could run a-, neighborhoods
* tavern and Jessie's Lounge in
Starke was for sale.
"I did a whole feasibility
study on my computer," said
Linda. "I found 70 percent of
the residents of Bradford
County were homeowners (as
opposed to renters) and 77
percent of the people here were
iempfoyed either by the state or
by Dupont," she said. "I put
that together with the number
of cars that travel down 301
and it looked like a good
investment."
The Napiers bought Jessie's


in August of 2003 and talked
Debbie Lumley, Jessie's
manager at the time, into
staying on for a year to help
them get a handle on things.
They knew from day one
they wanted to make a lot of
changes, though.
"We wanted it to be a
tavern, a local bar where
people would feel safe coming
in to have a drink with their
spouse," said Linda.
"We had a lot of work to
do," said Mate. "And we have
a lot more to do. We have a lot
of improvements planned to
make the place better."
The Napiers put on a new
roof and installed windows in
what was once a dark,
windowless room. They also
uncovered a second set of


made safety a big issue for
them.
"When we first came to
town, we went down and
talked to the police chief," said
Mate. "We told him about our
plans and told him that if we
were out of compliance with
anything, we wanted him to let
us know. We want to
cooperate fully."
He said he and Linda have
worked with the police
department to keep
disturbances to a minimum.
The bar's surveillance cameras
even helped capture a person
who was trying to pass
counterfeit money at the bar.
Linda said they do
everything they can to prevent
trouble from starting-like
keeping people from sitting in

doors that had been blocked
off. They made improvements
to the wiring tpo bring the
building up to code and
ifistalled a surveillance system
to improve safety for their
customers.
A new bar was installed and
its location in the room
changed from where the old
bar had been.
- "We plan to do a lot of work
on the landscaping. this year,"
said Mate. "We want to
improve the outside
appearance."
Linda's background in
safety and the couple's
concern for the community


their cars in the parking lot and
drinking. "We had some
trouble with that at the
beginning, but we just went
out and told them to leave.
You can head off a lot of
trouble by just letting them
know you won't tolerate it,"
said Linda.
Stopping trouble before it
starts also prompted the
Napiers to provide
transportation for their
customers on special party
nights.
On New Year's Eve, for
example, Mate has hired a
driver that will take customers
home (within a reasonable
mileage limit).
"It keeps them off the road

Your entire family

Daddy,
I watch through a small rectangular glass window as you
sit in t'he recliner and let the machines do what your body
cannot. I listen to the symphony of beeps, squirts, spurts,
and alarms as you are cleansed with the manmade filtering
systems of the Dialysis machine.
How did you get to, such a place as this? After your years
of investigating searching for.clues years of missed *
dinners, birthdays, anniversaries, parties and liolidays.
Lost hours of sleep will never be recovered, but what about
the host of merchandise you returned to grateful owners,
domestic disputes you refereed, and the mysterious murder
cases that you solved.
As you worked your life away, following your heart and
answering your calling into law enforcement, we sat at the
dinner table,' the entire family, minus you, and we would
wave as you drove past in your patrol car with lights flash-
ing brilliant. Wrapped leftovers in foil and Saran Wrap
went home in Mom's loving hands, to wait in the
microwave for you. Your children grew up and had their

Timbuktu: A


biker friendly


sports bar


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Dec. 31 will be a milestone
for Vickie Nobles and Todd
Anderson. They are getting
married that day at the site
where one of their dreams has
already come true.
The two have long wanted
to manage a neighborhood
sports bar, and they were
recently given that chance at
the newly remodeled Timbuktu
on U.S. 301 across from the
fairgrounds in Starke.
Nobles has tended bar and
waited tables in a number of
establishments. She was
tending bar at a lounge in
Middleburg when a man
started talking about wanting
to buy a .bar. She told him
about the old 301 Liquors
location that was for sale in
Starke. .--
The man, who wishes to
remain anonymous, looked at
the location and saw a lot of
potential. He began talkingto
Nobles about managing the
place for him. She introduced
him to Anderson, who works
in construction. Since the bar


needed a major facelift, the
whole arrangement seemed
like a natural fit, said Nobles.
Anderson has done a lot of
the remodeling work himself
and Nobles will tend bar. The
couple will work together at
Timbuktu on the weekends.
"We plan to eventually buy
the bar from him (the owner),"
Nobles said. "We've always
wanted to have a bar of our
own."
Nobles is from Clay County
and has worked around this
area most of her life. Anderson
came here from Texas,
Following a job he had at the
time. They are currently
looking for a house in
Bradford County. They plan to
tie the knot Saturday, Dec. 31,
with a biker wedding at the
Timbuktu.
They will wear leathers and
walk down the aisle_ between
rows of Harley Davidsons.
As you might suspect, the
Timbuktu is, very biker-
friendly. Nobles and Apderson
ride a 1997 Harley Fat Boy
every chance they get, which is
pretty much every day.
"We don't ride with a club,
we just ride," Nobles said.


Timbuktu received a complete facelift with its new ownership.


The hard work at
remodeling Timbuktu cut into
their riding time somewhat, but
the transformation is now
nearly complete.
"We wanted a bar with a
clean feeling, something that
would be a comfortable and
safe place for people to come,"
said Nobles.
The building was painted a
bright pink when the owner
bought it, so that color was the
first thing to go. A cedar deck
See BIKE, p. 7B


Vickie Nobles and Todd Anderson, soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Todd Anderson, will
manage Timbuktu.

"We hope the hunters who
want to use the area will
support this proposal. We
strongly believe this plan is in
the best interest of all
concerned parties, especially
the hunting community. We're
asking for public input on the
proposal. We will then compile
the public comments and
present them at an open house
at a date' and location to be
determined. All comments and
suggestions received will be
used by staff to develop a final
recommendation," Garcia said.
FWC staff will present an
overview of this proposal -to
commissioners at the Feb. 1-2
commission meeting in
Gainesville. This meeting takes
place at the University of
Florida Conference Center-
Hilton at 1714 SW 34th St. It
begins at 7:30 a.m. each day.
"We plan to present staff's
final recommendation at the
April 5-6 Commission meeting
in Tallahassee. If changes are
adopted, they would become
effective July 1, 2006," Garcia
said.

A LOOK BACK AT BRADFORD HISTORY:


Growth of
education
system mirrors
county growth
Today most people take it
for granted that a child will be
able to attend 12: years of
school at no cost to the family
--they tend to forget that this
was not always the case.


Traditional one-room
schoolhouses were located
throughout Bradford County
from early days. Many school
children of the time did not
even have access to a specific
schoolhouse. In the early
history of the county it was not
unusual for a teacher to board
with a local family who
allowed nearby 'children to
attend classes in the family
home. These classes were
usually held only three or four


months out of the year so that
children could help with the
family farm.
One of the earliest organized
schools was located in Lake
Butler (the county seat of
Bradford County at the time)
near the canal off the lake
(near the present-day First
Baptist Church). A log
building was used as a school
and 'as a meeting hall for the

HISTORY
Continued from p. 6B

Christian Church prior to
1880. Around 1880, a two-
story frame building on Main
Street in Lake Butler provided
classrooms on the first floor
anda_ _meeting--hall for-the-
Masonic Lodge on the second
floor. That building is still in
use today as the Lake Butler
Masonic Hall more than 100
years later. The building was
surrounded in early days by a
white picket fence that had no
.gate. Instead, a set of steps was
built on each side of the fence
so that people walked up the-
steps on the outside of the
fence and down the steps on
the inside to enter the school
\ard. Boss and girls %were not
allowed to play together at
recess and each group had
their own play area in the N ard.

Public education was
not always free...
_ Free public education was
first seriously discussed in
Bradford County in 1869 when
the superintendent of schools
at the time, J.P. Richard.
proposed a plan to offer free
schooling to the estimated
1,400 young people hho lived
in the count). However, free
schooling for all children in
the county would not become a
reality until the mid-1920s.
In 1887, the first public
school in Starke opened its
doors. Called the Starke Male
and Female Institute, or just
the Starke Institute, it "as later
replaced b. what is now
Bradford High School. Prior to
that time. education in the
Starke area was offered onlh in
the one-room schoolhouses or
through private tutoring groups
which met in a home. Other
public schools did exist in
various parts of the counts
before 1887, but most were
small and a far cr\ from the
more organized public schools
which were established in the
later 1800s. By 1880 Bradford
County, which included what
is now Union County, had 37
public partial-tuition schools.
each with an annual budget of
$2,305.
There were also a number of
private schools -in early years,
most of them grade schools,
which were fully funded by
tuition and had_- no-access to
public, tax.- funds. Orange
College was established in
1881 as the county's first
private secondary school. It
was founded by the Christian
Church and was located in
Starke. Although called a
college, the school operated as
a coeducational grade school
and high school. As the
number of schools which
offered public education grew,
the students available to
Orange College dwindled and
it closed its doors in the 1890s.

Early Bradford High:
sterling and healthy
In a Bradford Counts
Telegraph newspaper article in
1890, the advantages offered
by Bradford High School were
touted. The school was owned
by a corporation consisting of
Starke business and
professional men. Professor
G.C. Looney. a "high-toned
Christian gentleman" was in
charge of the school and was
described as "a profound
scholar and a teacher of the
highest grade." The article also
urged parents to have their
children attend school in
Starke by saying that. in seen

Area residents make their New Year's resolutions


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
The end of the year is here,
and with that comes a chance
for people to reflect on the past
and look forward to the future
by making resolutions for the-
new year.


FWC set to-
unveil last leg
of Fla. birding
trail
Snail kites will dazzle you.
Mangrove cuckoos will amuse
you, and black-whiskered
vireos will lure you in when
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) unveils the long-
awaited South Florida Section
of the Great Florida Birding
Trail.
With completion of the
2,000-mile trail, bird watchers
will be able to glimpse some of
Florida's remarkable avian
attractions at 446 premier sites
throughout the state. The
unveiling will take place Jan.
14 at a dedication at Corkscrew
Swamp Sanctuary in Naples.
The trail is a conservation
tool, fueled -by the rapidly
expanding popularity of bird-
watching. FWC selected the
sites based on the quality of
bird-watching experiences they
offer and their resilience. The
agency compiled and published
trail guides representing four
geographic regions.
The south leg is the fourth
and-final section of the birding
trail and has 116 sites. It winds
through 12 counties: Broward,
Charlotte, Collier, De Soto,
Glades, Hendry, Lee, Martin,
Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm
Beach and Sarasota. The East
Florida portion debuted in
2000, -followed by, West.
Florida and the Panhandle.
The trail includes nine
"gateway sites," including two
south loop locations the
Arthur R. Marshall
Loxahatchee National Wildlife
Refuge in Palm Beach County
and Corkscrew Swamp
Sanctuary. At these sites, both
beginning and avid birders can
borrow binoculars, pick up
field guides (written in
English or Spanish) and gather
other educational materials. -
South Florida offers bird
watchers a magnificent show.
Its coastlines act as migration
superhighways for many birds,
and, of course, the expansive
Everglades shelter an
abundance of birds, most
notably Florida's signature
herons and egrets. Grants from
the Federal Highway
Administration, the state
Department of Transportation
. and the Wildlife Foundation of
Florida have helped fund the
trail. Partners include the
Florida Park Service, the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service, the
National Park Service and
Audubon of Florida.
Completion of this final
section is a conservation coup,
harnessing the might of Florida
tourism to benefit our delicate
wild lands. For more
information, visit

Janus had two faces. One

RESOLVE
Continued from p. 1C
With this aside, there are
those people who still do make
resolutions.
According to
www.firstgov.gov, the most
popular New Year's
resolutions are losing weight,
paying off debt, saving money,
getting a better job, getting
physically fit, eating right,
getting a better education,
drinking fewer alcoholic
beverages, quitting smoking,
reducing overall stress,
reducing work-related stress,
taking a trip and volunteering
to help others.
But what do the people in
the area resolve to do in 2006?
The following are some of
their responses.


While Christmas shopping with her friend Jennifer White on
Thursday, Dec. 22, Becky Bridges (right) resolved to make next
year better than this year.


Wendy Floyd
works with the
New River Public
Library
Cooperative, and
she said her reso-
lution for 2006 was
to maintain her
current weight.
Floyd recently lost
25 pounds after
having a-baby.


Michele Etcher wants "to
spend more quality time with
my family," she said.
"Mine is always to be the
wife, mother, aunt, daughter
and sister that God would have
me to be," said Pam Saxon, of
Keystone, who also wanted to
lose weight because she
recently had a baby.

I students with
fair projects
Do you know a student who
is looking for a science fair
project idea?
g The Florida Department of
'"' Agriculture and Consumer
Services would like to help in
the search by encouraging
students to consider a topic in
agriculture.
-,, The department has
developed "Planet Ag," a Web
site designed to assist middle
and high school students in

step process that will enable
them to complete their science,


Centoya Chandler,
20, hadn't really
made a New Year's
resolution yet, but
wanted 2006 to be

fair project. Students learn how
to come up with a hypothesis,
decide on a procedure for the
experiment, record the results,
and come to a conclusion based
on those results.
Planet Ag also offers practice
projects for students to review
and presents topic ideas in the
areas of biochemistry, botany,
chemistry, engineering,
environmental sciences,
medicine and health,
microbiology, and zoology.
Among the dozens of topic
ideas included on the Web site
are:
How can animal pests be
genetically controlled?
Why do salts build up in
soils? How can this be
avoided?
Do different colors attract
different kinds of pollinators?
Integrating agriculture into
the science curriculum is a very
important process. More and
more rural areas are becoming
urbanized and families are
becoming further removed from
their agricultural. roots.
Bringing agriculture into the
classroom provides students
with an opportunity to learn
where their food comes from. It
also allows them to moae
beyond book learning and get
hands-on experience in science.
"Associating science lessons
with 'real world' experiences
like growing a' garden or
"raising animals makes learning
relevant to students' lies.'
Bronson said. "Performance
improves, and kids begin to
think about career ideas."

Melrose woman finds teddys beary collectible

bears in kilts, teddy bears that
move... you can probably find
almost every type of teddy
bear you have ever seen in the
possession of Kathy Blanchard
of Melrose.
Blanchard, who owns and


operates Bobkat's Cafe on
.Call Street in Starke, has
more than 1,000 teddy bears at
her home and another 250-plus
at the cafe.
She said she fell in love
with teddy bears when she was


a child and started collecting
them seriously at the age of
12.
"People just started giving
them to me, for birthdays and
Christmas, and I started
collecting more and more,"
Blanchard said.
"I never met a bear I didn't
like," she affirmed with a grin.
"They just make you feel
good. They're so cuddly and
soft."
Blanchard has lived in
Melrose all of her life. She
and her husband, Bob, who is
now deceased, opened Bobkat's
four years ago. They named
the restaurant after themselves
- Bob and Kathy, hence
Bobkat's.
When Bob died about a year
ago, his son, Ford Blanchard,
came on board to help
Blanchard cook and keep the
restaurant going. Blanchard's
granddaughter Katie spends a
lot of her free time helping
out at the restaurant after
school and on holidays.
"It's a'family concern," said
Blanchard.

grandson Robert. have made a
tradition of sending Christmas

"I just kind of stumble onto
them and they come home

Many of the bears on
display at the restaurant came
to Blanchard as gifts from
customers. "Customers find
bears at yard sales and Good

Most of Blanchard's bears
have names. Many are named
ater her brother, children and
zr.uchildren and with
every conceivable version of
their names.
Some are named for the
p-ople who gave the bears to
he'r and some have names that
just seemed to fit at the time.
Blanchard's '.restaurant is a
gathering place for a group of
people Blanchard refers to as
the "Lunch Bunch." The
mostly male group is
composed of people who work
in businesses around Starke.
They gather at lunch and
conversations and
sometimes good-natured
arguments often extend to


include several tables, if not
everyone in the restaurant.
The Lunch Bunch can be
found at Bobkat's every
weekday at lunch.
Blanchard got started in the
restaurant' business as a
waitress. She worked at
Howard Johnson's, Skeeter's,
the Trading Post, etc., as a
part-time job. She worked for
Georgia-Pacific full time for
many years.
"I always wanted to own my
own restaurant, but I could
never afford it," she said.
Her late husband finally
talked her into it one day. "He
said we should just quit our
jobs and open up a restaurant,"
she said. "We ran it together
for two years before he died. If
it wasn't for him, I'd still
probably be working for
someone else."
Blanchard's first wish was to
open a restaurant in her
hometown of Melrose. She
said she really wasn't sure
about running a restaurant
anywhere else.
"But Starke has been just
wonderful," she said. "Now, I
can't imagine having a
restaurant anywhere but here."

Bobkat's is known for its
home-baked breads and
pastries. Blanchard said the
Lunch Bunch particularly likes
the meat loaf, spaghetti plate
and salad platter.
The restaurant is open for
breakfast and lunch, 6 a.m. to
2 p.m., and is divided into two
sections -, one for the drop-in
diners, and' one reserved for
events and functions.
Bobkat's has hosted
weddings and wedding
receptions, baby showers,
graduations, meetings of civic
groups, etc. All of those
events have been held under
the watchful eyes of hundreds
of cuddly teddy bears.
The restaurant is due to be
remodeled in January. The
bears may have to be removed
during the work, but Blanchard
said they will be back in full
force with a few new
additions, no doubt.


Bears line the shelves on every wall in Blanchard's restaurant, as well as every nook and cranny of her home.


Bears and more bears everywhere you look in Bobkat's.

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.
Wh.h 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.

Editorial/Opinion

Thursday, December 29, 2005 Page 9C




The church beside the road


We watched with interest as the
ground was cleared and the building
began to rise from its foundation, to
take shape as an attractive church
building beside S.R 16 in Reno.
The Reverend Isaac P. Brantley,
pastor of the New Covenant Baptist
Ministries, provided background for
the church and insight into his career,.
from serving 22 years in the military
to serving mankind through a church
ministry.
Brantley said he first felt the call to
the ministry at age 19, but evaded the
call by enlisting in the U.S. Air Force,
rising to the rank of master sergeant
air controller and serving a tour in
Korea during hostilities and two tours
of 'duty in Germany. He left the
military .service in 1972 while living
in' Utah.
Hisformal education in religion,
which culminated in a doctoral
degree, stretched over the next several
years. during which time he served as
a minister and evangelist.
The local church is aligned with the
Missionary Baptist Church, the
Florida General Baptist Church and


the Florida Baptist Church, and
received considerable financial
support from the New River Baptist
Association. It is the only church of
its denomination in Bradford County.
The grounds are ample for church
expansion and parking. The building
presently contains the sanctuary, with
seating for 150 parishioners, a
pastor's office, restrooms, utility
rooms, etc., and there are plans for
Sunday school rooms to be added.
The church offers Sunday school at
9:30 a.m. and worship services at 11
a.m., each Sunday. It also offers a
noonday service Wednesdays and
prayer meetings Wednesday evenings
at 7 p.m.
Brantley says that although Starke
has several churches, he sees the need
for "serving the whole man,"
including counseling in the area of
domestic living, economic needs,
spiritual needs, job referrals, and drug
and alcohol recovery.
Fulfilling those needs, says
Brantley, is his calling.

together a 13-3 run with
several Bradford players on the
bench in foul trouble.
Ruise led all scorers with 20
points. Guion scored 15 and
Wilson had 11 before fouling


out.
The loss sent the Tornadoes
on the road to face fifth-ranked
Ribault in the Region 1

the exception of its early
stages, was never close as

A basket by Wilson put the

Kaiti Thompson and Tysee
Williams each scored once.
Keystone could not defeat
Santa Fe to claim the District
4-3A crown, losing 3-1.

pull within six points of the
Raiders late in the fourth
quarter with three consecutive
3-pointers, two of which came
from Poupard. The Raiders,
however, scored the final six
points of the game.
Keystone traveled to Green

game against Bradford after
aggravating an existing
shoulder injury.
A strong performance from
Ashley Steimke, who had
never pitched a varsity game
before, and late heroics by
Spaulding led the Indians to a
6-5 win over Bradford.
Spaulding hit a triple and
turned it into the winning run
in the bottom of the 11th
inning. It was only the fourth
hit of the game by Keystone.
Steimke, in relief of Fagan,
allowed three hits and no
walks in six-and-one-third
innings.
Steimke also had an RBI at
the plate, while Cheirsh Beck
and Michelle Houser each had
RBI singles. Fagan hit a solo
home run and Beck added
another run by scoring on an
error.
Keystone's offense
struggled in its next two
games. The Indians got just
two hits in a 6-1 loss to Santa
Fe in the district championship
game and one hit in a 7-0 loss
to West Nassau in the Region
1 quarterfinals.
A home run by Spaulding
provided the team with its only
run during .that stretch.
Keystone's baseball team
rallied several times, with the
help of a couple of doubles by
Blake Lott, to defeatSanta Fe
5-4 ,in the District 4-3A
semifinals, but the Indians then
watched Bradford rally in a 3-
2 loss in the district
championship game.
The Indians' Wil Breton hit
an RBI single and Tyson Paulk
scored on an error, giving -the
team a 2-0 lead, which it took
into the bottom of the seventh.
Bradford tied the game, then
won with' a run in the eighth
inning.
Breton and Lott each went
2-for-4 at the plate.,

Bolles scored six runs in the

Keystone's football team
seemed to. hurt its chances of
claiming second place in its
district after a 6-3 loss to
Bradford, but the Indians went
on to defeat district opponents
Interlachen and Ribault, while
Bradford lost to its two
remaining district opponents.
That allowed the Indians to
finish as District 5-3A runners-
up and earn their first playoff
berth since 1998.
Defense was a big key for
the Indians, who allowed a
total of 207 yards in the wins
over Interlachen and Ribault.
The. Indians managed just
two field goals of 32 and 34
yards by Michael McLeod in
the Interlachen game, but they
were enough as Keystone held
the Rams to 62 total yards in a
6-0 win. Keystone's defense
forced four turnovers.
Keystone followed that up
by forcing three turnovers-all
interceptions-in a 19-3 win
over Ribault. Running back
Greg Taylor scored two
touchdowns on a 7-yard
reception from Lott and a 9-
yard run. McLeod added field
goals of 32 and 33 yards.
That win gave the Indians a
3-2 mark in the district (they
also defeated West Nassau,
while losing to district
champion Bolles).
The Indians' postseason
road was a short one as they
drew a tough first-round
match-up against South
Sumter. South Sumter defeated
Keystone 35-0 and went on to
finish as the Class 3A runner-
up.
Two members of the girls
golf team were also able to
advance to regional

performances at the District 5-
