Main Street Starke has held successful visioning sessions involving the community as evidenced by the completed drawings
of artist Brian Borrello, which depict images of Starke developed after a recent two-day visit. Now it's time for the true work to
begin, according to the team of redevelopment experts who visited Starke last week.


Main Street given road map to begin its journey


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Starke's downtown area may soon
be revitalized as a program designed
to increase business activity begins
to take off.
Main Street Starke Inc. is still in-
its infancy, but it was recently
evaluated by a team of people who
have been involved in successful
Main Street programs in other cities.
The team will forward a detailed
report to Main Street Starke, but
members gave an overview to local
participants July 20. The team spent
several days in Starke, interviewing
the people involved in the downtown
business community and evaluating
the downtown area. Team members
pointed out a number of the positive
aspects Starke's downtown already
boasts and identified some
challenges Main Street Starke will
need to overcome as it seeks to


improve the business climate
downtown.
The team focused on four main
areas, the organization of Main
Street Starke itself, ways the
downtown -economy could be
restructured, ways the downtown
area could be promoted to increase
numbers of patrons, and how the
downtown could be redesigned to be
more appealing to those patrons.
Organization
Jeannette Peters, of Nonprofit
Management Consultants.
specializes in organization. "It is
imperative that we get everyone
working together toward one goal,"
said Peters.
She said the history Starke haof
citizen groups taking responsibility
for meeting the needs in of their own
neighborhoods is a big positive. She
said she saw people here identifying
local needs arid then organizing


themselveslo do-something about
those needs-not waiting for
someone else to dc. ..inething
"Main Street should be easy for
you because of that," she said.
Peters said the group already has a
core of very dedicated volunteers
who are eager to get to work. More
volunteers need to be recruited,
however.
She also said the group would not
be facing the task of changing
negative perceptions about the
downtown area-.-"There is a- lot of
community pride here. A lot of
people here think this is the best
hometown in the world. That's a
huge asset," she said.
__\While the core group is good.


Peters said members need to be
added, particularly from
nonbusiness areas. She
recommended recruiting the faith
community, school groups, charity
groups and community improvement
groups.
"Everyone needs a seat at the
table," she said.
Peters did identify some
challenges in the area of
organization. She said that a lot of
local people seem to think Main
Street Starke is just another part of
-the North Florida Regional Chamber
of Commerce. Main Street is
actually a completely separate entity.

Citizens

suggest

changes

in electric

utility

BY MARK-J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The citizens committee formed
earlier this year to study Starke's
utilities has delivered its first
recommendations to make the city's
system more efficient and less
costly.
Recognizing that the electric
system is the most complex and
misunderstood of the utilities--as
well as the city's largest source of
- -revenue and. customer complaints
related to cost-the Starke Citizen
Utility Advisory Committee chose
to tackle it first.
Some of the suggestions made are
new, while others have been
discussed in the past.but never
implemented.
Work with FMPA
Starke's relationship with power
provider Florida Municipal Power
Agency over the past several years
can perhaps best be described as a
blame game, with exorbitant cost
being the only road block to the city
exiting its long-term power supply
contract.
Committee Chairman Scott
Roberts said FMPA is not the sole
reason for Starke's high electric
costs. FMPA has been subject to the
same trend affecting all power
suppliers-higher-than-expected
natural gas costs.
Committee member and number
cruncher Jeff Oody found that only
one provider was able to best
FMPA's rates.
Over time, FMPA is trying to
regain its competitiveness by
diversifying its fuel mix, purchasing
natural gas reserves, retiring older
plants in favor of newer, more
efficient ones, etc.
As part owner of FMPA, Starke
was encouraged to play an active

Election qualifying offers

surprises; crowded races-


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
It will be a busy political season in
2006 with a full slate of candidates
in most of the races for the city of
Starke, the county, the state and the
nation.
On the local scene. two surprises
surfaced as qualifying closed at
noon on Friday. Long-time Starke
City Commissioner. Steve Futch
decided not to seek re-election and
incumbent School Board Member
James Watson withdrew his name
after having already qualified ...
Watson cited a number of family
health problems as the reason he,
withdrew from the competition in
District 5, leaving-David Smith Jr. as
the only candidate in that race.
Futch, a city commissioner for 16
years, said he feels it is time for him
to move on to other things.
"I'm retiring from the political
scene for a while," said Futch
Monday. "I want to spend more time
with my family and at my business.
Without the political obligations, my
schedule will be less complicated."
Futch's decision leaves three
candidates in the race for the Starke
District 1 seat. Former County
Commissioner Jimmy Bowen,


Daniel Nugent and Mark Santiago
will be on the ballot in that district.
In Starke District 3, incumbent
Larry Davis will face Travis Woods,
who is a former Starke city
commissioner, and political
newcomer Charles Fellows.
.In-Starke District 5, incumbent
Wilbur Waters will face challenger
Randall Crews.
Starke city commissioners earn
approximately $12,550 per year.
The Starke election is set for
Tuesday, Sept. 5, with polls- open
from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. If a runoff is
required, it will be held on Tuesday,
Sept. 19.
Three seats are up for election on
the Bradford County School Board,
Districts 1, 2 and 5. District 1
incumbent Jesse Moore will retain
his seat unopposed since no one
qualified to run against him.
Smith will take the District 5 seat
without competition since Watson
withdrew.
School Board District 2 has the
largest number of candidates of any
local race. Incumbent Bobby Carter
will face challengers Greg Alvarez,
Michael Barber, Stacey Shuford
Creighton and Richard Sapp.

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor -
The city of Starke now has a
tool to adjust watef and sewer
rates upward to cover the cost
of those utilities."
Five percent rate hikes over
the last couple of years haven't
done the job, but a new
computer model will help the
city commission decide where
to set those rates.
Sandra Joseph of the
Southeast Rural Community
Assistance Project explained
that her nonprofit organization
exists to assist small cities and
counties with 'free technical
services in providing water and
wastewater services, including
rate studies. All of their
services are free to those they
help.
Elmar Kapfer of the
University of North Carolina
Environmental Finance Center
demonstrated the computer
model, which uses Microsoft -
Excel to allow a user to plug ini
different rates and produce a.
financial forecast for water and
sewer utilities.
"It's a tool so you don't have
to guess what will happen, but
y., ou can actually see what
happens over the next couple of
years," Kapfer said ,
Water is-slightly profitable
for the city, but sewer operates
at a'deficit. Based on current
rates, the combined forecast of
those departments shows those
utilities insolvent through 2016
and beyond. As long as that is
the case, money % ill have to be

drawn from other- areas to
cover- operating costs. (See
related story gn-
recommendations fgr--" the
electric departmept.)-
Starke has separate rates for
residential and commercial
water- and sewer customers,
and customers in each of those
categories are charged the base
rate plus a variable rate for the
number of gallons of water
used.
Rate setting is a balancing,
act. Raising rates on small
users impacts them less than a
rate change for large users. At.
the same time, providing a
financial incentive to those use
less can encourage
conservation.
A new rate schedule hasn't
been .adopted, but the
commission will base new
rates on one of several
scenarios Joseph was asked to.
prepare using the computer
model. One,~for example, could
forecast the effect of holding
fixed rates steady, but raising
variable rates, and vice versa.


The city has. asked for the
.results of that work within two
weeks.
From its office in
Gainesville, the Southeast
Rural Community Assistance
Project can assist local
governments with:
Technical assistance and
consultation.
Training in all areas of
water and wastewater
development.
Public education in
conservation, groundwater
contamination risk and more.
Volunteers for housing
renovation, digging water lines
and constructing parks.
Seed grants and loans for
upgrades and construction of
new water and sewer projects.

JOURNEY
Continued from p. 1A
The confusion comes from
the fact that a large number of
the people involved in Main
Street are also involved in the
chamber. The Main Street
manager is Kim Skidmore,
who is the wife of the director
of the chamber of commerce,
Ron Lilly. Main Street also
-currently shares offices with
the chamber. At this point, the.
chamber. is also the largest.
funding source for Main Street:'
Peters recommended that the
two entities be separated as
much as possible. "The
perception will be that Main
Street is a chamber project and
that it doesn't need help
because the chamber will take
care of it," she said.
Of course, she pointed out
that the biggest challenge is
that there is no definite and
coherent plan that talks about
exactly what types of changes
need to be made. That should
be the next step. When people
see measurable goals set and
then reached, they will be more
inclined to keep participating.
"You've done lots of visioning,
now the work needs to begin,"
she said.
Economic
improvement
Doris Tillman, the program
manager of the Main Street
program in Ft. Pierce, which is
one of the most successful
Main Street programs in the
state, talked about ways
Starke's downtown could be
changed to improve the
economy and make it more
healthy.
"In .Ft. Pierce, our people
were ashamed of our
downtown (before Main
Street). You don't have that
here. People are already proud
of your town," she said.
Increasing the number of
businesses operating
downtown and increasing the
number of patrons for existing
businesses is the main goal of a
Main Street program. .
She said that Starke's
downtown already has 40
buildings listed on the National
Register of Historic Places. She
noted that a poll conducted by
the travel industry indicated
that 80 percent of people who
take vacations want to visit
historic sites. Some of the
downtown Starke sites" air6
currently unused, but that
history could be capitalized on
in transforming the downtown
area.
Tillman said the mix of
businesses that will exist
downtown should be a priority.
"You need a mix of goods and
services," she said. A
downtown that is exclusively
office buildings will not
prompt the casual shopper to
stroll through the area.
"You need to establish a plan
that says what areas will be
retail stores and what areas will
be office spaces," said Tillman.'
"Ideally, the office spaces
would be on the fringes."


Tillman pointed out that the
Florida Twin Theatre is already
an asset to downtown, It'shows
first-run movies and .brings:,
people into the downtown area
at night.
She also' pointed out that
downtown is already on its way
to being a destination for the
home repair shopper. A cabinet
maker, tile and carpet
company, appliance store and
antique shop are already
located in the downtown area.
"You have something like a
Home Depot, but it's not being
marketed like a Home Depot,"
she said. "You could decide to
market yourself as a home
improvement district."
No matter what main identity
is decided on for Main Street,
restaurants need to be included,
she said.
Tillman also recommended
changing, city codes to allow
retail only on the first floor of
buildings and reserve office
spaces for upstairs areas.,
Warehousing, where a building
* is used only for storage, should:
also be prevented in the
downtown area, said Tillman.
Parking has historically been
a challenge. In the short run,
better signage for existing
parking should be put up. so
that people are aware of where
they can park. "There are 172
spaces available for .parking,
but people don't know where
they are," she said. In the long
run, parking needs to be
somehow added.
Other recommendations
include:
Working with existing
businesses on a program that
will keep their rents from
escalating when improvements
are made.
Developing loan programs
with banks and the Small
Business Administration to
encourage new businesses to
locate downtown.
Recruiting new businesses
that will be complimentary to
the mix of businesses already
located downtown.
-Working on ways to control
electrical rates so that new
businesses don't find them as"
much of an obstacle to. locating
in Starke.
Image and
promotion
Joan Jefferson, coordinator
for the Florida Main Street
program, talked about ways to
.promote downtown that would
drqw patrons into.the' aea.
Improving dhe' images oftihe
downtown area and planning
special events that will draw
people downtown are two ways
to do this, Jefferson said.
She said the first thing is to
establish an identity for the
downtown area. For example,
one Main Street downtown is
marketed as an antique and
collectible shopping district.
Not every store sells antiques
and collectibles in that
downtown. However, a large
number of them do and that has
become the identity of that
downtown.
She said downtown Starke's
identity needs to be

established, possibly through
" community workshops or even
a contest of some type. Once
established, an image of quality
needs to be projected.
"Whatever you do, you need
to deal with quality," said
Jefferson. "Whatever you do,
do it well."
: She also said new businesses
and existing businesses that
have undergone a
refurbishment need to be
"celebrated."
"A lot is already happening
downtown and you need to
recognize those assets," said
Jefferson.
Special events should be
planned for downtown that
compliment the businesses.
She pointed to the Strawberry
Festival and last year's vintage


fashion show and tea as
examples of events that could
be expanded and capitalized
on.
Examples of events that are
held in other Main Street
downtown include Victorian
Christmas displays, window
decoration contests, evening
concerts, etc.
Recommendations for future.
events that could be held in
Starke include an antique road
show event, a farmer's market,
a sidewalk sales event, a
historic walking tour, etc.

Day said this area involves
making improvements, that can
be seen, felt and touched.
"You have already done
some things in this area," said
.Day, pointing to ongoing
renovations and recent
renovations made to downtown
buildings.
SDay said: the place to start
with design is basic
maintenance of existing-

property. Painting and
improving window displays
can significantly increase sales.
He noted a pizza restaurant in
another Main Street downtown

inside except for remodeling
the bathrooms," he said.
He said improving window,]
displays encourages people to
walk up and down the street
and increases the likelihood'
that they will make purchases'
in more than one store. "Youi
want them to keep walking and
keep exploring your downtown
and they will make more
purchases," he said.
Day alsp recommended
keeping the "retail edge" intact.
"Office spaces are better either
upstairs or on the fringes," he
said.
He recommended a lo
setback of zero, meaning
businesses would have their
fronts directly on the sidewalk.
He said ihat would also
encourage people to keep
walking up and down the
streets. Day recommended a
rule that would require the
front entrance of eaclWbusinessa
to be located on a downtown
street, not at the rear of thea
business.
"The front of the businesses_.
need to be as transparent as
possible, (meaning they should
have a lot of windows). They.
more people can see into the
store, the more likely they are2
to act on impulse and purchase
something," he said. HavingT
good window displays also,.
encourages impulse purchases.5i
He also said signs need to be
addressed. "Good signs are not)
necessarily expensive signs,'";
Day said. A sign that is unique
and eye-catching will do the-
job as well as a very large signdi
Day also cited parking as anW;
issue in his area of expertise.T
He said the available spacesn-;
need to be inventoried, effortsH
need to be made to ensure theq
existing spaces are usedT
efficiently, signs' indicating'
where parking is located need&
to be clear, business owners
need to stop parking in front off"
their businesses (those spaces'."
should be available to"'
customers), and parkingP-
ordinances need to be enforced.-T
He also said he regretted
seeing the traffic light on U.S.
301 at Call Street wa.sl
removed. The Main Street area
includes Call Street on the west
side of 301 arid, ideally"
pedestrians should be able to,
cross the street to stroll the
sidewalks in front ofi
businesses on both sides of..the':
major roadway. '
Day recommended building"
a database that would involve',
research on all the buildings:
downtown. That way, if il
business wanted to remodel"
ione of them, the owners would&
have information about hoWv
the building used to look and:
how it was constructed as a too'
in planning the renovations. '1

of 13 percent. That's more than
t, .ice the average loss
experienced by other systems,
and it hits Starke customers in
the wallet ,
FMPA estimates, the cost of
upgrading the system voltage
to. reduce line .loss at $1.75
million, .an investment that
would pay for itself over time,
through lower electric costs. In
addition to raising the system
.oltage, aging transformers
also need replacement.
Another costly project, but
one that would improve the
reliability of the system :is a,
second tie line to FPL. If one
tie line is down, the redundant
line could ensure uninterrupted
service.
:Engineering work has been
completed by FMNIPA for this
second tie line, but the project
was tabled after a request for
proposals was advertised.
If the city is going to stay in
the utility business, Roberts
said these overdue
improvements must be made.
Money has to be set aside to
upgrade the system, committee
member John Miller said.
pointing out that the only
improvements ,to city utilities
have come through state and
federal awards.
Reduce
unmetered usage
Just like the system loss
factor, the cost of unmetered,
incorrectly metered and pirated
power is spread across the
city's customer base. '
The committee recommends
that the city fully inventory
this unmetered usage and
identify the proper method for
sharing that cost among
customers. Faulty metering
can be addressed through
meter replacements, a
recalibration program and the
elimination of electricity theft.
Make sewer,
Skater self-
supporting
The sewer system, in
particular, operates at a loss.
Revenue generated through
billing is not enough to covet
the costs of running the
system.
The result is that revenue


from electricity is transferred
to. the wastewater budget to
cover the difference. This is
one reason electric charges are
artificially high.
Raising sewer rates to make
the wastewater system solvent,
may not'reduce customers bills
overall, but it would maki. the
electric costs more
proportional.
Making sewer and water
profitable is' also seen. as
necessary as developments
crop up at the city's fringes,
most of which will be served
by city sewer and water, but
not electricity. Miller said two
cities were being created made
up of two groups of citizens-
those who do and those who do
not use city power..
In addition to rate
adjustments, Roberts discussed
better. .financial reporting
through a cost accounting
method that would show the
city.where its costs are.'
"We think that a belter cost
management tool would d help
you all make a better decision
on what needs to be done," he
said.
As committee member
Darrell. O'Neal said, the
system needs to be run more
like a business. The city's
largest expense, personnel, is
the -one variable all business
owners can control, according
to committee heminber Jeannie
Baker. ,
James Rogers, another
committee member. said the
entire budgetary process needs
to be examined, so the city can
make sure that the electric
department isn't carrying the.
burden for so many other
services the city provides.
Perform rate
study
It's been a while since the
city took and in-depth look at
its rate structure. Roberts said
this goes beyond an analysis of
who gets charged what to pay
for electricity.
FMPA's bill to the citN
includes demand, capacity and
transmission charges.
Breaking that down could let
customers, for example large
commercial users, know to
curb consumption during peal
demand times. It could also
suggest a demand charge rate
for larger customers.
The result could' be 'a
consumption-based rate
structure with cost spread
across different tiers instead of
the simple division between
residential and commercial
rates.
The advisory committee is
also suggesting the city
consider .abandoning the
confusing fuel adjustment
charge in favor of a bulk power
cost adjustment. FMPA's bill to
. the city does not include a fuel
adjustment calculation,
although the overall cost of
power is built in and drives the.
bill up or down.
The fuel adjustment is
calculatedhby the city, and it is
this portion of customers' bills
that fluctuates from month to
month, not. the base rates,
which were set in- 1995.
Updating those to 2007 rates
could potentially turn .the fuel
adjustment into a negative
number, Roberts said.
The difference between
what FMPA bills the city and
what the city bills its
customers is where the real
work is, Roberts said.
Looking to the
future
This was an interim report.
The committee will continue to
look at the electric utility and
expand its focus to the city's
other'utility services.
Roberts said no one believed
problems would be solved
overnight. But change won't
take place at all without the
city commission's
commitment to see these
improvements.through.
"The things that need to be
Done cant be done," Roberts
Said. "We've got to draw a line
in the sand and move forward."

Impact fee study complete


- -BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The University of Florida's
James Nicholas has completed
the impact fee study necessary
for the Bradford County.
Commission, to move forward
in imposing them.
Impact fees do not apply to
existing construction. They are
charged to new residential and
commercial developments as a
way to pay for the demands
growth places on infrastructure
'and services.
Popular for some time in
urban areas, more and more
smaller cities and counties are
finding them necessary to keep
up with growth, particularly in
light of state demands that all
areas be able to demonstrate
that they- can accommodate
th t growth.
Soon local governments will
not be 'ble to permit new
development if they can't
show how infrastructure
improvements will-be paid for.
The time to be thinking
about these issues is n:ow,
Nicholas said. The days of
state and federal government
funding local infrastructure
projects, from new roads to
new schools, is over. .
The fees levels provided in
five categories represent the
maximum the county can
charge based on a number of
factors. Each new development
cannot be charged more than.
its: pro-rata share of funding
public infrastructure.
The fees, in the schedule
Nicholas presented do not
necessarily reflect the fees the
county will eventually adopt. It
can charge less, but not more,
than the recommended
amounts.
-Additionally, the county can
assess fees in all of the
recommended categories or.
just some of them.


Fees for residential
development remain the same
regardless of size, although
the commission will consider
applying reduced impact fees
for smaller single family
homes. The commission would
also like to exempt certain,
housing additions.
Fees for nonresidential
development represent the
total for each 1,000 square feet
of space developed.
For example, the maximum
that may be charged 'for a
single family home based on
Nicholas' study is $5,499,
which includes fees for roads,
library services, law
enforcement, fire protection
and public buildings.
Impact fees for a general
retail store total $6,369 per
1,000 square feet. That equals
$19,107 for a 3,000 square-
foot store,
Once opposed by
developers, Nicholas said
impact fees are gaining
acceptance since they
represent a simple alternative
to an in-depth review of each
newly proposed. project. With
impact fees, everyone knows
up front what a development
will cost without further
analysis.
Fees collected in a particular
district most be spent in that
district. In general, the fees
collected from a specific
development must be spent on
improvements that benefit that
development.
There are certain
restrictions. Impact fees for
roads cannot be used to repave
Existing roads,' for example.
Impact fees for law,
-enforcement or fire protection
can only be spent on
infrastructure such as new
equipment. They cannot pay
for operational costs like new
personnel. They could,
however, be used to pay for


outstanding debt on
infrastructure improvements,
such as the new public library.
The ordinance the county
will adopt after two public
hearings on the proposed fees
will apply countywide with the
cooperation of each.
municipality. An exception
may be. additional fees
imposed by the city of Starke.
for fire service or recreation.
Cities may also .impose impact
fees for utility services,
although County Manager Jim
Crawford said Starke may
stick with the capacity fees it
already charges.
A separate presentation will
be made to the Starke City.
Commission on its portion of
the impact fee study.
The county commission will
also have to deal with an
impact fee for schools once the
school board recommends
what that fee should be. Impact
fee assessments are made in a
city or county's land
development regulations.
Since school districts don't
have land development
regulations, the county
commission will eventually
impose the fee on the school
board's behalf.
An automatic cost of living
increase will be built into the
impact fee ordinance, although
Nicholas recommended that
the county commission review
impact fee levels every two
years.
The county commission,
should act on Nicholas' study
in the not-to-distant future,
once the scale for residential'
developments and a schedule
that breaks the recommended
fees into per-square-foot.
assessments has been prepared.,
As Nicholas said, each day
without impact fees in place
forces the county t6 fall further
and further behind.

gCrews running for city commission


My name is Randy .Crews,
and I would like to announce
my candidacy for the District 5
city commission seat. As a
lifelong resident of the great
city of Starke, I look forward to
'the opportunity of once again
serving the wonderful people
of Starke.
I served as the District 5 city
commissioner'a few years ago
and look forward to meeting
the challenges that face this
city head on.
Those challenges are large.
We have a utility challenge in
this city that we can't afford to.
simply ignore. Our residential
and commercial rates are too
high, and we need to be willing
to make those tough decisions
that will-be necessary to bring
the rates down. If you give me
thek opportunity to serve, I'll
work to bring those rates down
and won't be satisfied until they
are.
We also have a street and
road challenge .thatyou see
(arid feel) every day that you
drive. Our response as a.city to
our streets and roads has been,
at'best, hit and miss. We need
to" implement a comprehensive
road maintenance and repair
program that fixes problems
before they become
unmanageable. We also have to
start dealing with the traffic
problem in this city. It's only
going to get worse, and if we
don't tackle it now, it will soon
be uncontrollable.
-And like most of North
Florida, the city of Starke is
facing a growth challenge. It's
coming, and we all know it's
coming, but we aren't really
prepared. Controlled growth is
not a bad thing. Uncontrolled
growth, however, will turn our
city into something we don't
recognize and could totally
upend our way of life. As your
District 5 commissioner, I'll
work hard to make sure our city
stays a place we'll all want to
live and work in. -,.
T--.here are numerous other
issues that need to be addressed
and that this city will face in-
the coming months and years. I
don't have all the answers to
those issues but know in my
heart of hearts that if we work
hard, pull together, and meet
those issues head on, we'll
keep this city on the right track.
That's my only promise to you.
To work hard at making sure
your best interests are served.
If it's not good for our citizens,
it's not good for our city.

Far away in the sunshine
are my highest inspirations.
I may not reach them, but I
can look up and see the
beauty, believe in them and
try to flow where they
_--1 lead.

New twist in commercial rezoning debate
BY lARK J. CRAWFORD w... .
Telegraph EditorI


Believing the process may
have been corrupted by
citizens lobbying to sway them
against a commercial rezoning
request, Bradford County
commissioners passed the
matter on to the Division of
Administrative Hearings in
Tallahassee.
In doing so, they made good
on last year's warning to many
of the same citizens that
zoning matters could not be
decided by emotion and also
let it be known that it was out
of bounds for any of them to
communicate w ith the public
about zoning matters
scheduled to come before the
board.
All fiOe commissioners said
July 20 that ex part
communications-one-sided
testimony in the absence of all
interested parties-had been
received in the form of letters.
phone calls or e-mails from
citizens opposed to a rezoning
application filed by Craig
Patterson and Timothy
Buff'kin.
The application deals with
around 12 acres now zoned for
residential use at the southwest
corner of the intersection of
U.S 301 and C.R. 18. The
applicants have unsuccessfully
tried in the past to get the
corner rezoned for intense
commercial development.
After reading the ordinance
by title, building inspector
Wilson \\'hidden informed the
board there %%as no legal basis
for den ing the application,
e\en though the zoning board
recommended the county
commission do so.
Nearby residents of the
Hampton Lake area have also
opposed the rezoning request
for environmental and other
reasons.
Before Patterson could offer
comment on his application,
Cooper, a practicing attorney,
voiced his concerns over the ex
pane communication. He was
followed by admissions from
the other commissioners that
they. too. had been contacted
by members of the public.
According to the
commission's attorney, Terry
Brown, he has discussed this
problem with commissioners
in the past. Brown equated

matters constituents may want
to discuss with their.
commissioner.
At the very minimum.
Brown said, all that was
communicated to
commissioners should be
placed on the record so the
other side would have an
opportunity to respond. Given
the amount of communication
and correspondence,
commissioners felt it would be
difficult to do that.
The commission has to
render its decision based on the
evidence presented during the
'public hearing,-Brown said. If
the. commissioners didn't feel
they could conduct the public
hearingg- without being
influenced by prior public .
input, that would disqualify
them from from participating,
he said.
Four out of five
commissioners expressed a
need to abstain from the
proceedings. Only Chairman
John Wayne Hersey indicated
he was prepared to move
forward with the hearing.
The resulting lack of
quorum left the commission
with no option other than to
refer the matter to the Division
of Administrative Hearings.
A hearing officer will be
assigned and- will hear

evidence from both sides in a
publicly advertised hearing.
The hearing officer will offer a
recommended ruling based on
that evidence, which will in
turn be adopted by the county
commission.
There was concern that any
other course of action would
open the county up to a law
suit.
Acknowledging the amount
of public interest in the
rezoning application, the
county manager was instructed
to personally inform those
submitting their contact
information of the date and
time of the administrative
hearing when it is scheduled.
Hersey said that in fairness
to those citizens, the county
should request that the hearing
be conducted in the evening.
In addition to the message
sent. about ex part
communication, citizens were
also told that their point of
view for or against a zoning
issue didn't rise to the level of
evidence. It is fact, not
opinion, the county
.commission needs to base its
decision on in such cases.
The commission can't make
quasi-judicial decisions based
on what's popular. Brown said.
To ensure an argument
meets that standard, the public
was advised to seek legal
-.representation and- expert
testimony from engineers.

Zoning Web site a great resource


BY DUSTIN HORN,
Telegraph Siaff Writer
Whether you're a contractor,
appraiser or just a do-it-
yourselfer looking to add to
your property, you will find the
new. Bradford County.
Department of Building and
Zoning Web site extremely
useful in your next endeavor.
The Web site is a vast array.
of permits, applications and
maps that anyone can find
useful,' not. to mention
everything on the site can be
downloaded for free.
Zoning Director Nora
Thompson said the
downloadable material on the.
site is especially beneficial
because now people are able to
get. the applications and
permits directly from the site,
rather than her office having to
fax all of the'documents.
"Now they can go on the
Web site and download all that
stuff, even our land
development regulations, our
comprehensive plan, our future
land use map and our zoning.
atlas," Thompson said. "All of
that is available online for
them to look at." :
, An especially useful feature
of the site is the property


Back to
School Block
Party set for
Aug, 5
The Lawtey Recreation
Department is holding its
annual Back to School Block
Party on Saturday, Aug. 5-,
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at
Lawtey Community School.
Kids can celebrate their last
days of summer freedom by
sliding down the two water
slides set up at the school,
jumping in the Moonwalk or
taking a trip on the Tiny Mite
Train.
There will be music by DJ
Skippy, and school board
candidates from District 2 will
be handing out something
special for the kids. Kids can
also pick ,,up ,.free,..schooLt..


search. The information under
.thiroperty search is all public
record, so whether you are
an appraiser or just curious on
how your property is zoned,
this feature can be helpful.
The site also gives helpful
advice to property owners who
are -looking for the right
contractor, and to contractors
who want to do business in
Bradford County.
The site contains many
useful links to other county
and state sites that people are
typically directed to if the
department is unable to meet a
request.
"We give them leads to other
places that we automatically
have to tell them to call,"
Thompson said.
And by chance the user
doesn't find what they need on
the site, Thompson said
anyone can call to request
changes to the site.
"If they don't find
something they want they can
always call us," she said.
"'We're more than happy to
discuss things with them."
Not only -is the Web 'site
useful, but it is also easy to
navigate.
For instance, if you are
looking at the zoning codes for


supplies, and Lawtey Police
Department will have
fingerprint kits for parents.
Everything is free at this
block party, including snow


a residential estate, but then
you decide you want to
download the residential
construction packet for that
new room you've wanted to
add, then simply scroll to the
left and click on permits under
the building link.
Along with the easy
navigation of the site, it is also
pleasing to look at. The site is
designed for easy viewing, and
is easy on the eyes.
The site was done by Cody
Barksdale of Barksdale
Technical Services Inc.,
Thompson said. She said
Barksdale had done other sites.
for the county, which is why
they selected him to do the
department's site.
The Bradford County
Sheriff's Office Web site is
another site done by Barksdale.
The site is also useful. The
sheriff's site contains pictures
of sexual offenders in Bradford
County, as well as pictures of'
the most wanted criminals.
The Web site can be found at
www.bradfordsheriff.org.

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


Jerry Smith is pictured with the car that started it all-a 1964 SS
Chevy-Nova.-Smith bought the car in 1972 and has since built 28
street rods, with a 29th on the way.


Building the


seemingly impossible


Jerry Smith looks for
unique features
when building street
rods

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff 'riter
Most people will look at a
Ford Taurus station %wagon and
view it as a family
car-perfect for hauling kids
around and loading tip with
groceries.
Jerry Smith. on the other
hand, views that particular
vehicle as a "surf wagon." at
least when he's done with it.
Smith, one half of the Smith
Brothers Body Shop team,
builds street rods in his spare
time and his current project is
a Taurus station wagon. The
point of building a street rod is
to come up with something
that's unique. Smith said, and
he feels he's got that with the
Taurus he's working on. The


car \ ill not resemble its usual
4- or 6-cslinder, front-\.heel-
drive self. Smith is modify ing
the bodN to gi'e it a retro look
and has installed a Chevrolet
502 crate motor.
When he's done with it, the
car could be one of the top
ones in the Southeast, Smith
said. However, he also said he
could be laughed off the road
as he realizes he's taking a
chance with an unlikely.
candidate for street-rod status.
"There's a lot of risk
involved because it's not going
to be a desirable car by any
means," Smith said. "It's not a
'32 Ford, a '57 Che\y or a '57
Thunderbird This is a Taurus
station wagon.
"You've got to take a chance
and do something different.
This car is definitely that."
The Taurus, force completed.
will be the 30"' street rod-and
43"' car overall-Smith has,
built. The car that got it all
started for Smith %%as a 1964
SS Chevy No'a. That car is


still in his possession and will
remain so. He said it's a ver,
rare car. In fact, Smith's father.
Harold "Smitty" Smith, said
there is a man in California
who has offered to pay
anything just to get the car.
"That one's staying with me
a while," Smith said.
He bought it in 1972 from a
man in Miami. The car was
wrecked and the roof caed in.
so it was a total restoration.
It did not take Smith too
long to do that, however. Since
it was his first car, he \'as. as
he put it. "hot to go."
"It probably only took me
six months to do that car from
top to bottom," Smith said.
"Now it takes me four to five
years because I'm getting old."
One such car that took Smith
a %while %%as a 1961 Chevy Bel
Air. That project took him four
sears, but the car. which is still
in his possession, is quite an
attention getter and has done

See CARS, p. 9B


This 1961 Chevy Bel Air is an eye-catcher at car shows for more than
its orange color. Jerry Smith put four years of work into the car,
adding modernized features and utilizing the parts of several different
vehicles, including using the hood of a Dodge Ram pickup truck for
.- -the dash.

Illinois family finds
its niche in Starke
with body shop

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford County was not
their intended destination, but
it has become home for
members of the family that
have been running Smith
Brothers Body Shop for 30
years.
Brothers Tom and Jerry
Smith, and their father, Harold
- "Smitty" Smith, admitted they
;were fish out of water when
the', moved from Orion, Ill.
Jerry said they didn't know
anybody and they didn't fit in
very well.
"We were Yankees, too, on
top of that," Smitty said.
Yet that did not stop the
family from gaining a foothold
in the county and creating a
lasting business
"People took us in pretty
good for being Yankees," Tom


said.:
The Smiths were originally
trying to get to Daytona. It was
Smitty's desire to buy land
there, but on the way there, his
brother-in-law came down
with pneumonia. The nearest
hospital was the one in Starke.
While in Starke, the Smiths
met a man selling land and
they wound up buying.
"It's just by chance," Jerry
said. "Our roots are with cars
and racing. That's why we
were heading for Daytona. We
wanted to be in that area. We
just fell 90 miles short."
.Tom and Jerry both talked of
how they were starving to
death their first year living in
Starke-they would pick up
soft drink bottles along the
highway to get money for gas.
The brothers called their
parents and told them they
couldn't make it. Smitty's
response was that they better
make it because he had just
sold the family home in
Illinois and he and his wife,
Mary, were heading south.
It was an interesting move.


Tom said he and his brother
brought their cars down first,
towing one behind the other.
Both cars were filled with
family possessions. Tom then
flew back to Illinois and drove
a 1955 Cadillac hearse-that
Jerry used for transporting the
instruments for the band he
played in-from their home to
Starke. The family's johnboat
was packed with clothes and
flipped upside down on top of
the car. The car was so loaded
down that all the tires blew
before the car made it out of
Illinois.
"I drove that (hearse) 1,100
miles down here," Tom said.
"It took 18 quarts of oil to get
down here."
Smitty laughed at the
recollection, saying the hearse
must have been quite a sight.
"We looked like gypsies,"
he said.

Gypsies travel from place to
place, but there was no more
moving for the Smiths once

smoke Tuesday night.
As they continued .walking.
by what was formerly Roy's

Christian Fellowship
Ministries, they thought they.
saw smoke coming from the
roof; A call to 911 at.
approximately 8:15 p.m.
brought two units from Starke
Fire Department. Because
members of the Lawtey
Volunteer Fire Department,
along with Chief Mike Brown,
were training in Starke, two of
its units arrived minutes later.
Starke Fire Department
Chief Dwayne Hardee said the
cause of the fire was still under
investigation as of press time,
but it appeared to be.electrical
in nature, either from lightning
or a wiring malfunction.
Apparently striking wiring
in the attic, the building soon
filled with smoke. Water hoses
to the attic brought the fire.

Thie building suffered
approximately $15,000-

combination of smoke, water.
and structural damage to

The building, belonging to

Kevin B'9ker, pastor of

A Rookie at MacDill Field
A series on World War II


I was watching a TV show recently
that depicted the new Predator Drones
over Iraq. They were being controlled
.-by-men- and-women thousands of
miles away, somewhere in the United
States, gathering information about
enemy movements, gun
emplacements and other data in the
war zone.
i Unmanned, the drones preclude the
loss of pilots and other personnel
while gathering information in a war
zone. Some versions of the Predator
have been equipped to fire laser-
guided, anti-armor Hellfire missiles in
-addition-to -eolleeting-intelligence.
The drones have served well
enough to justify the Air Force's.
purchase of Predators to equip 15
squadrons.
The aircraft in use today, including
helicopters, jets and drones, is a far
cry from the plaries used in World
War II, which were propeller driven.
Choppers, jet engines and unmanned
drones may have been envisioned by
engineers and designers, but none bad-
m__adeAthere -way-ento-theliftle field
by the end of 1945.
The TV show brought to mind the
military aircraft with which I was
familiar in the long ago days of
WWII. Men and women who fought
arid won that war are now in their
eighties and exiting this life rapidly.
However, servicemen and women
from subsequent wars are filling their
ranks, and the government continues
to provide health services. to
thousands. The Veteran's Memorial.
Cemetery at Bushnell is rapidly being
filled, and the location for another
ateran's cemetery near Fort Meyers
Ws bgen agroved
While this series isn't biographical,
my experiences will be used as a
vehicle to relate some incidents
relative to times and places in the
period 1941-45.
-People of my generation remember
where they were and what they were
doing on that warm December day in
North Florida, Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941.
It was the, day., a prominent
businessman in Union County was
buried because the medical
community couldn't successfully
combat a penicillin reaction.
Penicillin was a new wonder drug, but
there was' still much to learn.
It was also the day the Japanese
--Gaught--the--U:S. military forces
napping and destroyed the American
Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor in an
aerial attack. President Franklin D.
Roosevelt, in his -request for a
declaration of war, called it a day that
would "live in infamy.
Those of us at the cemetery heard
the news on car radios as services
ended and we were returning home. It


was a moment in time, seared in
memory of all Americans living at the
time. Nothing really changed at that
moment, but then again, nothing
would ever be. the same again.
Although I was single, tall and
slender, weighing 115 pounds, I was a
prime subject for military
conscription, but my draft number
was high enough that I wouldn't have
been called for many months. My best
friends were already in uniform, and'
after Pearl Harbor, I couldn't wait to
"join up." The next week I went to
Jacksonville to enlist, but a health.
problem intervened and I returned`
home. In early January I returned 'to
the same recruiting station, and a
different doctor accepted me. The,
date was Jan. 14, 1942. --
Aside from feeling conspicuous in
civilian clothes at., the time, enlisting
enabled me to choose my branch of
service. I chose the Army Air Corp, a
decision I never regretted ...--
The group that enlisted that day,
some 15-20 strong, was bused to
Camp Planding to pick up clothing
and ship out to various military
installations. The choice of locations
for Air Corp enlistees was limited, so
I requested shipment to: Jefferson
Barracks, Mo. The Army obliged by
sending the Air Corp recruits
(including me) to .MacDill Field at
Tampa.
We were assigned to "Boomtown,"
a name that described the, hutments
(four walls with a canvas tent
stretched over it) and white beach
sand everywhere. The cook shack and
orderly room were the only buildings,
and the dining room was under the
startt with sea_,gulls, driftingiin,,and
out, doing their thing. The
temperature caught up with the
calendar; and it was cold. This was to
be our home for about four weeks,
and our time was spent mostly
loafing.
We moved into two-story barracks
with bunk beds, central heat and
'adjacent bathrooms. The mess hall
was nearby, and meals were served on,
white dishes, rather than in mess kits
and aluminum cups. After
Boomtown, the barracks compared
favorably with the Paris Hilton, or so
I thought.
In those days, military personnel in
uniform could travel far and fast
while hitch-hiking, so I "rode my
thumb" to Worthington Springs
several times while stationed at the
"Big Mac."
I was a buck private in the Army Air
Corp. Next week the private gets into
trouble.

UC sheriff
speaks out
Dear Editor:.
-,". This letter is in response to
the recent letter to the editor
regarding an incident occurring
just outside of Lake Butler two
weeks ago.
'The letter suggested that
residents "exercise your right to
protect yourself."
Our constitution pro. ides all
Americans the right to bear
; arms and protect ourselves.
Remember, though, we are a
ci ilized nation and 'community
and-this- i-whs we ha-e a law
enforcement system to
administer, protect and seek
justice to those who commit
crimes against us.
c As the sheriff of Union'
County, I take exception to the
letter written suggesting we are
not prepared to handle our job.
This is a community made of
hard-working law abiding
citizens along with the men
and women of law enforcement
and corrections that pull
together in a team spirit every
day to see that our citizens
remain safe and that the law is
administered fairly and justly
for all.
It .is. mpqrja4nt before,
0..*strikitgonrout Mwhose who
perform this job that you have
facts pertinent to each
situation. Certainly, when you
feel that you are the victim in
any incident, minutes seem
like hours and you expect that
the resolution of your incident
is solved or handled the way
you see that it should be. I
agree. However, our men and
women of law enforcement and
corrections daily, nightly and
while the rest of us 'are
sleeping are out there and-
having to make split-second
life decisions, often times
under stress and with limited
information such as this
particular incident. As Sheriff,
I am responsible to the people
of UniOn County to assure that
youget the best possible law
enforcement action and that
professionalismis maintained.
Union County is over 245
..-square miles with over 10,000
residents and 4,000 inmates and
growing. I feel that our law
enforcement efforts in our
community solidifies that our
county, although being the
smallest enjoys a very low
crime rate and a quality of life
that many, newcomers have
realized. I would say that this
would not be the case without
the efforts of our community
and the law enforcement and
correctional officers -who live
and work here.
Before passing judgment,
you must have facts on what a
routine day or night is like for
a deputy sheriff and specifically
the facts surrounding this
event:
Fact: Deputies respond to an
average of 34 calls per shift in
Union County.
Fact: As court officers,
deputies handle all civil and
criminal process for not only
Union County citizens, but


also every prison within its
boundaries.
Fact: 911 dispatchers handle
on average of 75-100 calls for
emergencies and information
requests daily.
On the evening the writer is
speaking of, a :all was placed
to the sheriff's dispatch center
and reported that a person was
outside and attempting to gain
entry into her home. this is a
priority call and \ as treated as
such.
Fact: The dispatch center
immediately radioed the
'responding deputy who arri' ed
in -the area in under four
.minutes.
Fact: The caller called back
and .reported that the subject
had left the area in a vehicle.

who decided to pursue the

traveling, or any ample
description of the vehicle, only

The responding 'deputy

.to locate and intercept. After
several minutes, the deputy

Brothers Tom and Jerry Smith are pictured with a Tom and Jerry sign that was
.--given to them by their father, Harold "Smitty" Smith, during their 25th year in
,business. Smith Brothers Body Shop has been in business for 30 years.


SMITH
Continued frmo-m p. TB

they settled in Starke. Smitty,
who got a job at the Che% rolet
dealership in Gainesville, said
he was making more money!
than he ever did in Illinois.,
Then the Smiths opened, their
body shop on June 1, 1976.
Tom said he worked at the
body shop by himself forjhe
first month while Jerry and
Sniitty continued working in
their other jobs.
'"We had to have some kind-
of- income in 'case this place
didn't make if," Tom said.
Jerry and Smitrl eventually
quit their jobs and joined
Tbm-there was so much
business he couldn't handle it
by himself.
-'Il was unreal," Tom said.
'Thirty years later the Smiths
are still going at it, but their
history with cars goes back
much further.

.Born in the fast lane
rSmitt.y raced for
approximately 17 years and his
family was right there with
him. Tom and Jerry, as infants,
'wouldfsbe there at .the track,
underieath the bleachers in
their baby buggies. Jerry said
he must have been just three
days old when he attended his
first race.
"I think I was literally
almost born on the race track,"
Jerry said.
'Tom and Jerry spent. so


much time at the race track
that Jerry was surprised to hear
/the National Anthem playing
prior to a baseball game close
to home. He followed the
sound of music, expecting to
see a race of some son.
"We thought (the song) was
for stock cars only," Tom said.,
Smitty said he lost a lot of
races between his first and his
last, but he started off with a
win and capped his career with
a win. Tom followed in his
footsteps as a racer, placing
second in his first race and
winning his last race.
Jerry was not a racer. Music
was his interest. He was in a
band in Illinois and played
with'Tom Petty once in Petty's
first band, Mudcrutch.
"Just for one night," Jerry
said,. "He fired me."
Jerry did not compete on the
track, but he was interested in
cars nonetheless.-If his work at
the body shop isn't enough to
prove that, how bout the fact
that he is still working on cars
once the business day is done?
Jerry builds street rods in his
spare time. .
"I like fixing cars," he said.
Being at the race track at
such a yojag q&?,ma). h.e
helped -Tos" and .ferr) de elrop
iheiitiptergl, in cars, much the
same as maybe frequent, trips
to the dump as youngsters
fostered a love for, as Jerry
puts it, old "junk."

Is it a body shop or a
museum?

antique gas pumps, for
example, while the walls are
covered with signs advertising
car products and other items.
One wall is adorned with a row
of old padlocks, including one
which Smitty built a working
key for himself.
"We could probably open a
museum," Jerr said.
Tom and Jerry fondly
recalled accompanying their
grandfather (Smitty's father') to
the dump as children.
"Man, he'd go through there
and. pull out bicycle parts,"
Tom said. "He was there every
day."
Smitty said h'is dad would,
take those parts and build
bikes, which he would then
give to children for Christmas.
Smitty still has one of those
bikes-an all- aluminum
model.
"I'll never part with that,"
Smitty said. "Thai's staying in
the family."
The same could be same
about every item in '-the
Smiths' 'collection, which
tends 6 f'ir homes as well.
Smitty has three sheds at home
full of stuff-old motorcycles,'
old race cars and old oil cans
he said, would probably fetch
$200-$300 each if he chose to
sell them.
"You can't find them,", he
said. "There aren't any of them
around anymore. People like
me bought them all up and


Harold "Smitty" Smith works on an old windmill he had shipped from Illinois. He's
;been working on it for six months (the blades and various pieces were run over at
a trucking terminal). He said it will stand 65 feet tall when it is erected.

Not everything hanging on
.the walls at Smith Brothers
t^Body Shop is an antique.
There is the sign in the office
- of the famous cartoon cat and
mouse with whom the brothers
5 share their names.
Tom and'Jerry--an
inseparable pair
Denise Smith, Jerry's wife
who works at the business,
said people. can't help but
respond with a laugh when
they ask who the- owners are.
and are told Tom and Jerry.
The family is well aware of
the joke as is evidenced by a
"Tom and Jerry" sign on one
of the walls in the office that.
features the famous cat and
mouse. The sign was a gift to
the brothers from their father
in recognition of 25 years in
business..
Jerry joked about what it
would be like if there was a
third brother in the business.
"We probably would've
been Moe, Larry and Curley
then," he said.
Just as Tom and Jerry the
cartoon characters are an
ins parable pair, so. are the
Smith brothers. They plan to
remain 'in business together as
long as their health allows.
"I don't think Tom can do it
without jne and I can't do it

This gas pump dates
back to
approximately 1928.
The Smiths have
several such pumps
at their body shop,
including two that
date back to the
1930s..


"I don't want to (do it
without Jerry)," Tom said.
Besides' good health, several
things have helped carry the
family business this far.
Tom and Jerry said they
have been blessed by having
good employees-in the past
and two good employees now
in Shawn Davis and Edward
Roberts.
"They're not just help,"
Jerry said. "They're family.
They don't work for us. They
work with us."
Nothing, though, may have
contributed more to the
Smiths' success than the good
work they do.
"We don't advertise or
anything," Smitty said. "It's all
word of mouth.. It's been that
way all along."
As Jerry puts it, they will do
everything an insurance
company will allow them to do
when it comes to repairing a
vehicle. In fact, he may spend
late nights working on
someone's .car to meet a
deadline, ,
'"We try to fix the car as if
we owned it," Jerry said.
As good a work .as the
Smiths try to do, the family
realizes the business would be
nothing without the support of
its customers. Every family
member is appreciative of that.
"We've been real fortunate,"
Tom said. "People have been
good to us here."

LETTER
-Continued from p. 4B

We are fortunate to live by a
-system that allows us the
abilitN to vent our frustrations
through the power of free
speech In the same token, we
all expect that if we as law
enforcement or corrections
justt act quickly, we have to
have the facts. It is gratifying
"to know in this day of
technology that all of our radio
S.apd emergency calls as well as
administrativee calls are
mrecoided. As sheriff, I routinely
review these calls to assure that-
I continue to provide the best
servicee possible to out people
:,here in Union County. -
:.,As the sheriff, I also look at
crime trends in specific areas of
the county and make sure that
swift action is taken. I am
proud of the job our officers do
and when a crime trend rears its
Shead, our team immediately
goes after it and tirelessly
'works to solve and bring forth
those who commit the crime.-
The writer suggested that the
area where she lives has
suffered "multiple break-ins and
incidents of vandalism in my
'-.neighborhood, all within the
: last few weeks."
Although records

;do not reflect this, I answer to
dthe people. Although the writer


Responsible use will hopefully
result in long-term availability
of these lakes."
Use of the lakes is restricted
to fishing, according -to
Department of Military Affairs
and FWC officials. Anglers
must carry out trash from the
lake area because garbag~ecans
are not available.
"The Florida National Guard
and Florida Department of
Military Affairs are pleased to
reopen the lakes as an added
setrice to our, respppsiblo

of her safety still remains
paramount to me and increased
patrols in this area have been
implemented.
Additionally, the writer
named a subject whom she felt
might be the person whom she
encountered.
The writer r questioned
whether or not the subject was
interviewed.. I assigned
deputies to make contact with
the person of whom she felt
might be the subject, but
learned that this was not the
subject. The fact that the
person may have been invited
to the residence on previous
occasions rests with the writer.
That portion is not a law
enforcement issue. The person
in question was warned about
being at the residence in an
effort to assist the writer.

This Taurus station wagon is Jerry Smith's latest project. The finished product
will resemble a "surf wagon," Smith said.


CARS
Continued from p. 1B

well in several car shots.
Smith obtained the car from
a junkyard in South Carolina.
Like the Taurus station wagon
he's currently working on, the
Bel Air consists of junkyard
parts from other vehicles. The
grilles are made from a Dodge
Neon, the front bumper
incorporates a 1969 Mustang
unit in the center with the outer
ends coming from a 1972
Corvette and the dash is a hood


from a 1998 Dodge Ram
pickup truck.
"Being in the business we're
in, I'm very fortunate to be
able to go out in the junkyard
and dig out what I want,"
Smith said.
The feature of the car that
seems to draw the most
comments from people is the
glass. The original side glass
pieces were replaced with a
two-piece .- window unit
consisting of arched, tempered
glass. Smith had to- split the
front, inner windshield post
and widen it by I inch-all
without changing the original
windshield opening.


The glass work turned out to
be quite a feat, Smith said; but-
it seems to be iust the kind of
challenge he enjoys when he's
building a car.
"I like to make things look
like they would be impossible
to do, .but somehow pull it
off," he-said.
Smith has said the Taurus
will be. the last car he does,
citing escalating costs as the
main reason. However, he
admitted he would still like to
tackle any car made in 1953,
the year he was born.
Why Smith even builds
street rods may seem like a
mystery to some considering


he spends eight hours a day
working on cars as. part of his
job. His wife, Denise, said she
doesn't understand how he can.
return to his business at night
and, keep working on cars, but
she added that it's therapy for
him.
Smith seems to agree with
that assessment, saying he has
no other hobbies such as
bowling or golfing.
"This is all I do to keep me
sane, I guess," he said.


Calling all
classic cars..-
Jerry Smith is a candidate
with his street rods, but
anybody else who owns a
classic car is welcome to
attend the Starke Cruzin' event
at Powell's Dairy Freeze and
Noegel's Auto Sales on
Thursday, Sept. 14, from 6-8
p.m.
Music and food will be
available along with the

New tax
exemption
available for
ag producers
Florida -Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.,
Bronson recently announced
that a new state law that takes,
effect this month exempts
electricity used for agricultural
production from the state's
sales tax.
"We are grateful that the
Legislature- enaeted-- this.
meaningful relief, measure,
which will assist our
agricultural producers in
helping them hold down their
production costs," Bronson
said.
Under terms of the- law,
which took effect July 1, the
exemption requires, that those
requesting it separately meter
electricity used in production
activities from the electricity
used for other purposes. If the
electricity is centrally metered
and is used for both tax-exempt
and taxable purposes, the
purchase of the electricity is
subject to tax.
The exemption covers
virtually all aspects of a farmer
or rancher's business operation,-
including the preparation,
planting, cultivating,
harvesting and processing of
'agricultural products. It
includes aquaculture,
horticulture, floriculture,
viticulture, forestry, dairy,
livestock, poultry, bees and
any or all forms of farm
products.
To qualify for the
exemption, agricultural
producers must furnish their
utility provider with--an-
exemption certificate stating
that the electricity will be used
directly and exclusively for the
production or processing of
agricultural products.
Producers can contact the
Florida' Department of Revenue
for forms and other, information
about the exemption at
http://www.myflorida.com/dor/
or they can call the agency's
taxpayer services section at 1-
800-352-3671 or (850) 488-
6800.

All-black school alumni unite in Bradford County


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer,
When the alumni of
!Robinson 'Jenkins Ellerson
High School reunite in Starke,
their purple and gold tiger
shirts bare the phrase, "Lest
We Forget."
It was the hard work of
former teachers and students of
the area's historically all-black
schools that brought together a
vision that would not allow
people to forget.
On Saturday, approximately
450 alumni of nine all-black
schools got together at the
Bradford County Fairgrounds
to share their memories in the
first Historic Black High
School Alliance Round-Up.


These were Alachua County
Training School (Alachua),
Consolidated High School
(Lake Butler), Douglass High
School (High Springs), Dupbar
High School (Green Cove
Springs), Feseden Academy
(Orange Lake), Lincoln High
School (Gainesville), A.L.
Mebane:,. High School
(Alachuili). Richardson High
Schodlid(Iake City) and RJE
High School (Starke).
RJE Alumni .Association.
President Valara Jenkins
Petteway said the event had a
better turnout than people
expected.
. "Im surprised people were
surprised," she said. "I knew
people would come."
The program started with the


singing of "Lift Every Voice
and Sing."
The lines by James Weldon
Johnson and R. Rosamond
Johnson described the mood of
the event: "Out from the
*gloomy past, till now we stand
at last where the white gleam
of our bright star is cast."
Several speakers said that
black people have come a long
way, and a legacy has been left
behind that still needs to be
. remembered..
At the beginning of the
program, City of. Starke
Commissioner Carolyn
Spponer welcomed the crowd
to Starke.
"Today, it says what we can
do. if we are together," she
said.
Sulmarie Duncan, from the
Lincoln High School Alumni-
Association, told the history
behind the occasion.
She said the idea of the
round-up came in 1998 from
John Dukes Jr, who was a
former' principal/instructor of
Lincoln High and served as
assistant superintendent of the
Alachua County School Board.
Almost eight years later,
Duncan said the idea was not
lost, but someone needed to
make it a reality.
"The time came in February

"This proclamation) will be

anyone who reads it can run

Alumni of each school were
recognized by a roll call. When
a schools named was called, all
alumni could come to the front


of the room any way they
wanted.

maters, adorned in their school
colors.
Petteway said, "Whatever
age they were, they still had
school spirit."
There were large .groups
from many of the schools, but
a, few had only a handful of
members present.
Regardless of numbers,
Herb Jones-an A.L. Mebane
High School alumnus-said
the reason for the occasion was
to reclaimr the heritage of those
who attended the all-black
schools.
"If you don't restore our
heritage, it will be lost," he
said.
.. Eddie Jackson, a 1960
Consolidated High School
.alumnus, agreed with this
statement.
Each year, Jackson helps
organize the CHS Reunion at
Lake Butler Elementary
School, which used to be the.
'high school.
"Back when we were
coming along things were
different," Jackson said.
Blacks went to separate
schools, often with lesser
materials, fewer teachers and a
shorter year, he said, but the
values they learned were very
important,
"We're trying to establish
our ,morals with younger
people," he said.

And while some of the black
schools were scattered
throughout the various
counties, Jackson said black
people as a whole. community
cannot be divided.
"It's not going to take one
community, it's. going to take
all," he said.

Continuing the
alliance
Petteway said it is the hope
of the alliance committee that
these types of events continue
in different areas.
"We're rotating from city to
city," she said.
SA conference will be held in
November in Gainesville that
will be used to establish
guidelines and activities for the
alliance.
Another annual event the
group hopes to .hold is a
festival in .February of each
year that will include recruiters
from historic black
universities, a job fair and an
opportunity for high schoolers
to apply for scholarships.
Petteay said they also want
'to continue gathering
information and memorabilia
from the black .schpo.ls..and'
alumni.
:"A lot of these schools
report that all that stuff has
disappeared (when the schools
were closed)." she said
"Memorabilia is lost."
Even if the physical
reminders cannot be found, she
wants people to know, "This
organization does exist."
Petteway said she was proud
of the people who took notice
of the event, such as U.S.
.Representative Ed Jennings,
Commissioner Todd Chestnut
II of Gainesville, Bradford
School Board member Jesse
. Moore and numerous other
county. city -and school


officials.
"We (RJE Alumni'
Association) were \er) happy
to have hosted the first hi toric,
black alliance," she said.. ,
