Walnut Street
returning to
normal
With the support of the
Downtown Business and
Community Association and Main
Street Starke Inc., the Starke City
Commission decided Aug. 15 to
reopen Walnut Street to two-wa)
traffic be.iteen S.R. 100 and,
Jefferson Street.
The on-e-vay plan as originally_
proposed -to create additional
parking spaces, but returning to the
original parking pattern will only,
result in the loss of four spaces.
The move comes in response to
the closure of Court Street, which is
now a part of the site being
developed by Walgreens. The traffic
li ht at the intersection of U.S. 301
and Call Street was also removed
this year, and left turns onto 301 are
now prohibited.
DBCA President Lee Sparks said
there needs to be another way for "
traffic traveling north to access S.R.
100, and the city commission
agreed.
A date for the change has not
officially been announced, but
Project Director Ricky Thompson
said it would take place on a
Sunday-perhaps as soon as this
weekend.

election will take place Aug. 21

County budget includes new pay plan


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor'
A lot of back patting for the
county's positive financial state took
place during the commission's first
budget workshop.
The commission does need about
$1 million more to balance the
proposed $30.5 million, budget for
2006-2007, which is down from the
$31.2 million approved in this year's
budget.
The first departments appearing
before the board, however, presented
balanced budgets.
Even remaining at 9.5 mills, the
county projects nearly $1.3 million
more in property tax revenue over
the coming year, for a total of-$7.6-.
million. The county also has more
than $552,148 in fiscally constrained
money coming from the state and
nearly $1 3 million coming from the


one-cent sales tax.
The pay plan
County Manager Jim Crawford
also explained the county's new step
pay plan tp the board. A grant-
funded study established minimum
to maximum -salary ranges for 30
different pay grades among county
employees.
Pay grade 101starts at $6.24 an
hour, or $12,979 a year. The
maximum salary for that pay grade
is $9.05 an hour, or $18,824 a year.
The -Tighest pay-grade, pay grade
130, has a minimum salary of $25.70
an hour, or $53,456. The maximum
salary for that level position is
$37.27 an hour, or $77,522 a year.
Each step on the schedule
"represents-a- five-year .-interval. For
example, after five years, an
employee in pay grade 101 should
be making $14,148. After 10 years, it
would be $15,317, and so on.


Of course, the scale increments
increase depending on one's pay
grade. At pay grade 101, the five-
year increment is $1,169. At the top
pay grade, the five-year increment is
$4,813.
Climbing a step on the ladder
won't just be a matter of time on the
job, however. Annual performance
evaluations for every position will
be taken into consideration.
Merit pay, in the form of one-time
bonuses or step. increases, for
example, may also be awarded to
outstanding employees.
To factor in cost of living and keep
the 'step plan current, the typical 3
percent raise will be added to the
plan each year, so the minimum,
medium and maximum salary
amounts-for each pay grade will
increase over time.

Train


traffic--


likely to


increase

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
A commuter rail line in Central
Florida could indirectly result in
more train traffic through Starke.
The plan, announced by Gov. Jeb
Bush earlier this month, involves the
state purchasing 61 miles of CSX
Transportation railroad and
converting it to commuter rail use
between Volusi.a County and
Orlando.
One reason for doing so is to ease
traffic .congestion on roads in
Central Florida. but it may do so at
the expense of Starke. Many freight
trains now traveling south from
TJacksonville through cities like
Palatka, DeLand and Orlando will
be rerouted to first travel west, then
south through Baldwin and Starke.
Train traffic crossing, U.S. 301
and S.R. 100 already contributes to
slowdowns. The average number of
trains passing through is around 35
each day, according to Meg Scheu
Sacks at CSX.
"The early estimate is
approximately 6-12 trains
additionally per day in 2009, but 1
.would like to emphasize that this is
an earl)' estimate,"' she said. -
The $491 million deal includes
nearly $60 million to build five road
overpasses, but not in Starke. They.
are planned for Alachua. Sumter and
Marion counties; even though local
leaders have actively sought funding
from the state for an overpass here.
"We haven't gotten the attention
we would like to receive from the
state, but we will go to work on
trying to get some attention," said
-Rep.- Aaron Bean.-- ..__

illness

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer


The monthly
meeting of the
Bradford County- "..
School Board
started like all
the others. with
the pledge of
allegiance and a
prayer. .
The difference
this time was the
prayer for the ,
health of
Superintendent Hatcher "
Harry Hatcher Hatcher
III.
Hatcher recently announced he
has been diagnosed with cancer.
However, he said he does not
expect it to greatly affect his
position as superintendent.
Appointed almost three years ago
(Nov. 10, 2003) by Gov. Jeb Bush,
Hatcher has also owned and.
operated the Western Steer Family
Steakhouse since 1979. He is
involved in and serves many
community organizations.
In an interview before Monday's
school board meeting, Hatcher said
he was still making plans for his
cancer treatments.
The doctors have recommended
radiation and chemotherapy to battle
cancer in his tonsils and lymph

Starke's budget includes more money for large projects


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The city of Starke's budget
for 2006-2007 is showing a
slight surplus of $245,000 even
though it is taking on a $1.7
million upgrade to the electric
system.
The project is one reason the
budget has increased from
$18.6 million this year to more
,than $21.8 million next year.
A decision has yet to be
made on how much of the
$1.18 million in excess revenue
will be transferred from the
utility fund to the general fund,
which was short $940,000. The
typical transfer from utilities to
support general government
,_-services has been around
$700,000. Then again, general
fund expenses are up to $4.2
million from $3.6 million, so


more support from the utility
fund may be needed.
Since the city commission
has agreed to issue a request for
proposals to upgrade the
voltage of the electric utility to
reduce line loss pushing up
electric bills, money to
accomplish that has been added
to the budget. City Clerk Linda
Johns budgeted more than.
$900,000 taken from the repair
and replacement fund, project
funds from a bond reissue a
couple of years ago and other
unrestricted funds.
Johns said the commission
could take that money and use
it for the project. A new
$775,000 loan will need to be
added to the. bond money-to
-fund-the project.
Project Director Ricky
Thompson asked if the city


should leave itself without
funds in the repair and
replacement fund to cover
emergencies like the recent
equipment failures at the
substation. There's still a
cushion in that fund, Johns
said, though it's not as high as it
needs to be. The commission
will have to begin paying it
back, and there's $60,000 in the
new budget set to be returned to
the fund next year.
Nearly $294,000 has been set
aside for. new utility trucks, a
bucket truck and a
dump/garbage truck. Such
capital outlay expenditures in
the electric department and
other areas are a good thing,
-Johins said, and something the
city hasn't been able to do in
years.
Johns said a better attempt


was made to allocate the cost of
employees to the proper
departments, so, for example,
electricity doesn't completely
fund the city manager's
position and sewer no longer
funds all of the employees in
the water department.
Water and sewer rates will
increase another 5 percent this
year, and the commission will
consider rate changes again at
some point in the future to keep
the sewer, department from
losing money. With $4.46
million in expenses that include
a $3 million State Revolving
Fund loan for the ongoing
sewer rehabilitation project, the
sewer department's shortfall
will be made up for by revenue
from electricity.
In the general fund, there is a
projected $100.000 increase in ..


ad valorem tax revenue owing
to growth, Johns said.
Likewise, there is nearly
$75,000 more in sales tax
money, $100,000 more in
utility service tax money and
$14,000 more in
communications services tax
money. An estimate for electric
franchise fees, which the city
intends to begin collecting, has
yet to be determined.
The city is carrying forward
$175,000 in recreation grant
money and adding it to another
$200,000 grant, all of which is,
earmarked for improvements at
the Edwards Road Recreation
Park.
Johns added $200,000 to the
recreation department budget
that will go toward construction
of a new facility on Edwards
Road. This will come out of the


city's coffers since the
governor vetoed a state
allocation. The clerk said she
would set aside money each
month into a fund that will not
be touched except to construct
the facility.
That addition along with the
grants shot. recreation's budget
from $598,716 to more than $1
million.
The police department's
$1.56 million portion of the
general fund includes $20,000
for new cars, down .from the
previous year, and $44,000 in
new. money toward personnel.
The retirement of Fire Chief
Dwayne Hardy reduced the
budgeted salary for that
position to $39,500, which
helped reduce the overall fire
department budget to $626,550.

As for facility
improvements, the county

for needed upgrades. ,
Thompson said, but the city
budget included $75.000 to re-
erect the former recreation
building removed from Pratt
Street as a new kennel.

donations, and R.J. Corman

offered to move an old middle

said. "That's what it's going to
end up being because there is
never an end to it."
Futch said the city shouldn't
have gotten to this point. The
city's job is to get the animals
-off the streets. He said the easy
way out is to 'explain, to
volunteers that the city cannot
afford it.
"We're not an animal shelter,
and -we're not an animal
adoption agency," Futch said.
Thompson claimed he spent
30 percent of his time on
animal control after Davis
commented that city
employees were running
themselves ragged trying to
keep up.
Smith said he and Thompson
fielded a number of calls from
the volunteers each day.
"I've gotten short with them,
because they've got nothingg
else to do but tie up your time,"
Smith said.
In the end, the expense of
spaying and neutering was
removed from the budget.
Futch said if volunteers want to
get a grant for the city to pay
for the service, fine. Otherwise,
the public should pay for
sterilization at the time of
adoption.


To reduce overtime paid to
an existing employee, the city
%ill hire a new contract
employee to manage animal
control.
Futch also said that money,
for upgrades should be coming
from somewhere besides the
county and other participating
municipalities. They should be
charged for pickup, housing
and euthanasia, but nothing
more.
As Thompson put it, "We're
going to go back to being
animal control."
Strays. get
longer stay
One concession the city was
willing to make at its Aug. 15
meeting was the length of time
animals would be housed
before being put down.
At the request of PAWS
member Elaine runner, the
commission increased the time
from 10 to 15 days. This will
give PAWS time to get healthy
animals to one of its adoption
events. .
PAWS holds events at Wal-
Mart Supercenter on the first
Saturday of each month and at


other locations in the city on
the third Saturday of each
month.

Landfill counties ready to fight for waste stream


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Fearing the disposal rate
could be pndangcred by the
opening of one or more
privately owned regional
landfills, the New River Solid
Waste Association has agreed
to act to secure the waste
.stream coming to the tri-
' county facility.
To do this, the board, is
hiring Tallahassee attorney
David Dec. said to be one of
the most qualified attorneys in
Florida dealing with solid
waste issues.
In particular, there is worry
over a Georgia county selling
its landfill to Waste
Management, which plans to
use it as a regional disposal site
for waste from both Florida
and Georgia.
There is a similar threat to
the east, where Putnam County
is in negotiations with Waste
Management.
Without agreements with the
cities and counties now served
by New River Regional
Landfill directing that all
commercial waste be disposed
of there, they could be enticed
to take their waste to a private
facility offering lower disposal
rates, or tipping fees.
The landfill took a $1
million hit when commercial
waste from Alachua County


was diverted from New River.
Unable so far to make up for
the loss, management was
forced to dip into reserves to
cover operational costs.
If even more waste is'ost,
tipping fees could be driven up
from $24 a ton.
Alachua County, which is
still experiencing a shortfall in
the transfer facility it
constructed, is also taking
action.
Since a 1994 U.S. Supreme
Court decision on flow control,
Dee said there have been
hundreds of lawsuits that make
flow control a volatile issue.
Solid advice can be, difficult to
give with confidence, he said,
but he did tell the association
that the easy options aren't
defendable in court. Tough
decisions that are defendable
are tough because they can be
politically unpopular.
Options include the wait-.
and-see approach or attracting
new customers by slashing the
landfill's tipping fee. To do so,
the landfill would have to cut
staff, overhead and programs
to the bone, eliminate
dividends paid to member
counties, including Union
County's host fee, and use fees
to,pay for disposal operations'
only. Money to fund other.
areas would have to come from
county general funds, higher
taxes or raising special


assessment rates, something no
member bounty has done since
special assessments were
imposed.
The landfill could get into
the hauling business, adding
trucks and staff and contracting
with counties to collect and
dispose of the waste at New
River. This would require
prohibiting private companies'
from collecting -garbage in,
unincorporated areas.
Aliernatively, the counties
could grant exclusive contracts
to one or more private haulers
to collect commercial waste,
stipulating where the waste
must he delivered. This could'
drive others out of business.
The counties could amend
and enforce local ordinance 1to
require disposal at New River
Regional Landfill. Legally,
however, this would only
present waste from being
disposed of elsewhere in
Florida. They can't regulate
waste if it is going to be
disposed of out of state.
Along with cleaning up
existing or passing new
ordinances, the board was iold
that each county should pursue
inlerlocal agreements with
their municipalities asking
them to, deliver all solid waste
to New Riter.
New River may also
continue to pursue solid % aic
from -rot-of-county areas. The


.landfill already has agreements .
with Alachua and Levy
counties.
A final option is to follow
the lead of other public
facilities and sell the landfill.
NRSWA plans to join with
another publicly owned
landfill, Aucilla, to cover legal
costs and costs, associated with
a waste generation study.
Aucilla landfill in Madison
County receives waste from
Jefferson, Madison, Taylor and
Dixie, and, is also concerned
about privately owned
landfills.
The waste generation study
will determine the amount of
waste generated on
commercial property and, the
generation rate for each type of
commercial property. This
could result in a fee schedule
for 'special assessments on
commercial property.
Even when Dee creates a
model ordinance for the
counties, it will then be up to
those commissioners to take
them back to their respective
county commissions .to be
personalized.
Discussing the advantages
of public versus private
facilities. Alachua County
Attorney Dave Wagner pointed
out that counties could
maintain control o er disposal
prices at New River.

BUDGET
Continued from p. 2A
The proposed animal
control's budget was slashed.
(See related story.)
Johns said she was waiting
on direction from the board to
determine what to transfer
from utilities to balance the
general fund. She said she
wanted to do no more than
$850,000. If that is the case,
some cuts will be necessary, as
the general fund was $938, 896
out of balance as of the budget
workshop.
In the transportation trust
fund, the street department was
up considerably to $720,000.
Property taxes designated for
streets increased more than
$30,000, gas tax revenue is up
more than $13,000, and the
revenue transfer from the
general fund increased by more
thaji.n,$100,000. There is a
$7Qt0fO cash carryover from
this year.
Revenue increases doubled
the amount available for street
paving to $50,000. Personnel
costs were also tuip
considerably, again because
costs were being allocated to
the correct department.
Any overrun from utilities
not used to balance the general
fund may be added here for
street paving work.
The only fund to show a
decrease was internal service,
the city garage. The nearly
$100,000 drop to $326,000 is
due to fewer labor sales and
:reallocation of some salary
costs to other departments.
Salary ranges under review
The city commission may
finally be ready to establish
salary ranges for its employees.
Johns distributed a draft of
the job descriptions and salary
ranges for commissioners to
review. The document
contained minimum and
maximum salary levels for all
positions held by city of Starke
employees.
Johns said the minimum and
maximum levels were based on
other local governments in the
area and averages provided by
the Florida League of Cities.
A few employees with 20 or


more years of experience were
above the maximum levels
being recommended,
Thompson said.


The budget includes a three
percent raise for all employees,
which will. cost the city an
additional $90,000.

PLAN
Continued from p. 1A
In some areas, it was
discovered that employees
werc being paid below the
recommended salary for their
pay level and time on the job.
While the county can't correct
this all at once, corrections will
iale place over the next twp or
more budget years.
Jn those cases, employees
will be raised to the
appropriate level based on
their pay *grade and years of
service and they will receive
the: annual 3 percent. increase
on'top of that.
Crawford said the pay plan
wqa, based on the salaries paid
in::, other North Florida
counties.
"'Our greatest asset is our
personnel," Crawford said.
"Juist because they know that
we're, working on something
like this, their attitude, has
changed, -their morale has
increased, and they know
they're., being paid attention to.
"'We're getting better
performance and better
efficiency-it's a big payoff."

Percy Sullivan's $2.23 million
budget request for the fire.
departments carried a message
fot the county commission:
growth will impact the
county's approach to fire
protection in as little as 10
years.
The request included salary
and benefits for nine full-time
firefighters, construction of a
station at Sampson City and
reifovations to. two other
stations.
-Currently, the county relies
on an all-volunftef firefighting
staff.
"I knew we couldn't do it

stated, we need to be looking
to,1he future," Sulli\ an said.
insurance, including
wOrkers' compensation,
cdcimunication and utility cost
increases yielded a $207,000
b.ilget for the fire
d artments, up from
$|>7,0 Q.,, .... ; ,.
Also a result of growth,
there is a move to hire a county
planner, splitting the cost
between building and zoning
anM solid waste. That results in
hither personnel costs for both
departments. The planner
would work with building and
zoning, but also in the areas of
code enforcement and grant
writing.
Building and zoning also
added another employee to
deil with the increased


workload in the office this
year, and it now carries 25
percent of the cost of 911
mapping personnel. Those
costs and increases for items
like fuel and the county's
contract with the North Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council resulted in a 4otal
budget of $279,000, up from
$187,000.
Because of the business the
office is doing, revenue
generated far exceeds the
expenses in the building and
zoning budget, according to
Zoning Director Nora
Thompson.
Travel, new equipment,
landscaping and signage for
the agriculture extension office
added to that office's budget,
which totals $161,295. Home
and Community Educators
were also given $1,000 for the
first time for their activities.
The board and Extension
Director Judy Butterfield also
discussed the need ,t6 consider
replacing the entire building
that houses the extension
office in the future. A new roof
for the building has been
placed in the county
commission's budget.
The county's match of
$36,000 for the primarily
grant-funded emergency
management department is
down slightly from this year's
allocation. More of the grant
money is being-used to cover
personnel costs. In all, the
department will have around
$189,000 to spend on its
activities.
Community development
also draws its revenue from
grants for various housing
assistance programs. The
department's budget for the
coming year is around '$1.3
million.
The $1.4 million.budgef for
solid waste, in addition to
paying for a portion of the
county planner, also includes
improvement costs for the
Starke and Keystone Heights
collection sites. 'Director
Donny Wise is also adding" a
new position to supervise an
inmate crew to clean up illegal
dumping around the county.
Engineering costs for
monitoring of the county
landfill are also up.
Maintenance is up to
/ $306,000 due to the addition of
a new position that is partially
paid for by the courts.
Mosquito control was up to
$85,000 from $78,000
primarily doe, to; o ernime, '
travel, fuel and new equipment
costs.
Of all the department's, only
the usual offenders-the
sheriff's office, emergency
medical services and the road
department-showed deficits.
They will be addressed in a
workshop, along with the
library, before the
commission's meeting tonight,
Aug. 17. That workshop will
begin at 4 p.m.

No campaign
signs on DOT
right of way
Candidates running for
political offices and their
campaign workers are
reminded by. the Florida
Department of Transportation
that campaign signs' are not
allowed on state right of way,,
no matter how large or small.
Florida law prohibits any
sign on state right of way other
than DOT signs. Placing
campaign signs along the
roadways on private property
without the permission of the
property owner is also illegal.
DOT crews spend many
hours removing political signs
from the state right of way,
with the numbers increasing as
it gets closer to the general
election in November.
"Our crews could be
working on other tasks that are
much more needed than having
to repeatedly pick up campaign
signs' from along: the
roadways," said District 2.
maintenance engineer Jim
Hannigan.
*The campaign signs that are
removed are taken to the
nearest maintenance ard and
stored until someone claims
them. If unclaimed by the
general election, they are taken
to the local.landfills.
DOT asks for the
cooperation kof. everyone
associated with a political
'campaign in not putting.signs
up on the state right of way.
"Especially during the
summer when we are trying to
keep the roadsides mowed, it's
very difficult to have to keep
remo% ing the campaign signs,"
* added Hannigan.
Questions can be directed to
your local DOT office or the
public information office in
Lake City at (800) 749-2967.

Two Camp Blanding lakes

now open for fishermen


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Having been closed since
Sept. 11, 2001, two lakes at
Camp Blanding are open to the
public for fishing.
Magnolia and Lowry lakes
were -reopened on July 28,
according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission.
The lakes are now open
from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on
Friday and Saturdays. Day
hunting is allowed and a check
station is also open.
"The Florida National Guard
and Florida Department of
Military Affairs are pleased to
reopen the lakes as an added
service to our responsible


Florida citizens," said Maj.
.-Gen. Douglas Burnett, adjutant
general of Florida.
"Many of them have fished
these lakes for years, and we
disliked not being able to
provide this 'privilege after
Sept. 1. Now, we can restore
'some of these opportunities."
Anglers have to check in arid
out of the -Treat Road gate
check station off S.R. 21 near
Keystone Heights, said Jerry
Krummrich, FWC regional
freshwater fish biologist.
"Because of military security,
we must monitor access to the
post."
He also said the. public
should strictly follow the 1:30


p.m. closure time. Anglers
must take trash out from the
lake areas because trash cans
are not available.
If these guidelines are
followed, Krummrich said the
privilege of lake access may be
a long-term option.
Military training still could
occur on some weekends, so if
necessary, the areas would be
closed.
Members of the;: pubic
wanting to use the area should
call Blanding's lake
information line at (904) 682-
3318 for recorded updates
about possible closures, or the
Lake City FWC office at (386)
758-0525.

Tax roll data shows more growth for Bradford County


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford County
Property Appraiser's office
began mailing out proposed
tax (TRIM) notices Tuesday.
Property Appraiser Jimmy
Alvarez said they should be
arriving in homes by the end of
the week. If a person does not
receive a notice by Tuesday,
Aug. .22, they should contact
Afvarez's office.
TRIM notices will give all
property owners information,
such as the value of taxes for
last year compared with the
current property value, eligible
exemptions, proposed taxes to
be levied and the latest date
someone can appeal to the
Value Adjustment Board.
Alvarez said the tax roll data
for 2006 showed $803,935,449
in taxable value. This is up
from 2005's $677,143,547.
From 2005-2006, there was
approximately an 18.72
percent total increase in
taxable value in the county
after all exemptions.
There were 6,212 homestead
exemptions, up only by 58
parcels from last year.
Before exemptions this year,
there was an actual value of


$2,004,736,002 (in 2005, the
value was $1,444,403,876).
"We've .seen ,a 6lt of
growth," Alvarez said.
A lot of this has to do with
the escalation of property
values. Raw land prices have
tripled and quadrupled in some
cases, he said
He said appraisers all over
the state are seeing these
increases, but it is not known
what is directly causing them.
Low interest rates could be
one contributing factor, but
Alvarez said some investors in
the stock market are not seeing
a lot of returns. Investors then
turn to buying property.
"A lot of people see real
estate as a pretty stable
investment," he said.
Another factor. is
construction costs, which have
really increased throughout the
last few years. Alvarez said
property prices have reflected
that.
"We're having good growth
on commercial and residential
sides," he said.
Overall, there. was more
growth on the residential side
compared to commercial
properties.
However, there haye been


large commercial
developments, such as Wal-
Mart SuperCenter, that will
continue to bring in more
commercial properties.
"We look for 301, primarily
south, to be our primary
growth sector," Alvarez said.
While it has been slow in the
county,, he said, "The growth
will come."
To see a breakdown of
proposed tax rates by area and
taxing authority, charts are
available on theta appraiser's
We b site ,
www.bradfordappraiser.com,
by clicking on "Tax Rates."
These rates will not be final
until late September after all
the taxing authorities (school
board, county commissioners,
water management district,
etc.) finalize their rates
through two public hearings on
each agency's budget.

The man behind
the tax roll data
"No one likes taxes. Not
even me."
This statement made by.
Bradford County Property
Appraiser Jimmy Alvarez
summed up his feelings about

taxes, but it never.has hindered
him from doing his job.
"I just do my job and try to
treat people"fair,".he said. "We
do all we can to serve the
public. That's why we're
here."
Alvarez said when the
people feel like they are being
treated fairly and given an
accurate property value, they
are willing to work with him.
5'It's worked out real well
for me," he said.
Elected to office in January
1977 while he was still
attending the University of
Florida, Alvarez almost turned
down the opportunity to run
for properly appraiser.,
Growing up west of Starke
on Brownlee Road, Alvarez.
was active in the Future
Farmers of America
organization.
In 1971, he was the state
FFA president. In .1973, he
was a national FFA officer.
"It opened up opportunities
for me to travel."
Both of these positions
allowed him to have
experiences outside of
Bradford County and even
Florida.
It was during these travels
that he met a businessman.
Later, the man started working
in Calhoun County and offered
Alvarez a job.-
"I thought seriously about
going out there," he said. "You
never know you're doing the,
right thing until Nou've already
done it."
At the same time, Alvarez
was still attending UF and had
many people from his home
county tell him he should run
for property appraiser. -
Prior to the election in 1976,'
"I didn't have any property or
real estate background," he
said.
Not knowing whether he
was doing the right thing, he

BC will host small farmers, entrepreneurs workshop


BY JIM DEVALERIO
Bradford Extension Agent
A workshop for producers,
agricultural suppliers and local
entrepreneurs is being offered
at the Bradford County
Extension office on Thursday,
Aug. 31, from 5:30-9 p.m.
The "Growing Growers"
workshop will cover a broad
range of topics, including
vegetable and herb production
(greenhouse and field), cut-
flower production and a fruit
and nut overview. There will
also be a session on tips and
tools for going to the market,
along with a guest presentation
by a local market manager.
Farmers markets, especially
in urban areas, have become
very popular in the United
States. There are several
farmers markets in north
Florida that need produce to
sell. The cities of Keystone
Heights, Lake Butler, Lak-e
City and Gainesville all have,
farmers markets that are
seeking vendors.
Currently, there is a lot of
discussion within the city of
Starke about starting a
downtown farmers market. An
area grower -can supply
produce at more than one
market since market organizers
usually schedule market das
so that they do not conflict
with other area schedules.
Farmers markets, however,
are only one targeted market.
Other potential markets
include local restaurants,
community supported
agriculture farms, and the local
school system. When farms are
supported by a collection of
homeowners who ban together
and prepay for crops'
throughout the season,-you
have a community-supported
agriculture farm.' The grower
gets his money first, then
invests into producing the
crop.
As the grower harvests the
crop, a variety of his produce
is obtained regularly
throughout the growing season
by its supporters. The grower
has the advantage of knowing
his crop is sold before,he
grows it and homeowners have
the benefit of fresh food.
In the Farm to Schools
program, schools use local
produce when possible. This
reduces the distance food
needs to be transported before
being sold, gets the freshest
food available to our children-
and stimulates the local
economy.
Small farms make up about

BY JIM DEVALERIO
Bradford Extension Agent
The State of Florida

stables and processing
facilities located on a farm.
To qualify for the

4 are in the running for District 14 Senate seat


Horn vows to 'take
care of the concerns
of all the citizens in
the district'
BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Travis Horn (Republican) is
one of four candidates in the
race for the state senate seat in
District 14, which represents
both Bradford and Union
counties.
Horn is the director of
marketing and advertising for
Point 2 Point Communications
Inc. He was born in Orlando,
raised in the then still rural
town of Kissimmee, .and
currently lives in Gainesville.
He obtained his associate's
degree at Valencia Community
College and then obtained his
bachelor's degree at the
University of Florida. He went
on to obtain his law degree at
the University of Florida
College of Law.
Horn' spent four years in the
Army. and served as an
-ui.fantryman with the 82"
Airborne -D[vision before,
being honorably discharged in
1994. He has previously
worked with the U.S..
Department of Agriculture, as
a library technical assistant at
the UF College of Law, and as'
a sales consultant for various
radio stations.
Horn said that if he is
elected, he plans to put the
concerns of the residents first. '
"I will represent the entire'
district (which includes
Alachua, Bradford, Union,
'utnam, Columbia, Gilchrist,
bevy and Marion counties),
ot just one county or one

will face three other candidates
in the Florida Senate District
14 race, a seat that represents
,both Bradford and Union
counties.
Oelrich has served as the.
sheriff of Alachua County for
14 years and points to a record
that includes successful efforts
to reduce crime in a fast-
growing -county. "I place an
emphasis on maintaining safe
communities, a safe district
and a safe state," he said.
Oelrich has a bachelor's
degree in criminology from
Florida State University and
was previously a special agent
with the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement's Organized
-. Crihe Unit in Miami. He
began his -law enforcement
career as a police officer in St.
Petersburg. Throughout his
career in law enforcement, he
has investigated. many major *
crimes, including homicides.
and narcotics. As a longtime!
sheriff, he gained experience
handling a major department
and managing a multi-million-
dollar budget.
He has extensive law
enforcement training,
including through the FBI's
Law Enforcement Executive
Development Seminar and the
U.S. Department of Justice's
Drug Enforcement
Investigations School.
He also previously owned
his own insurance agency for a
number of years.
Oelrich is married to the
former Rose Mary Treadway,
and the couple has three.sons.


Travis Horn
"I will take care of the
concerns of all the citizens in
the district."
Horn said he is concerned
with having area-taxpayers get
a fair return on 'their
investment. "I think Florida
needs to redirect a little more
of the budget .from South
Florida (to serve North
Florida). A handful of counties
in South Florida waste more
money in one afternoon than,
the city of Starke would need
to operate all year. If we were
able to shear a small
percentage of that away for our
communities, think of the
impact that would have."
Horn said he brings a
different perspective since he
is not a professional politician.
He has served in politics as a

Ivan is a businessman in
Gainesville, Kenneth is in the
U.S. Marine Corps and Nick is

He said one of his priorities,
if he is elected, will be to
protect the lifestyle enjoyed by
residents of North Central
Florida. He said a balance can
be found that will both protect
that rural lifestyle and respect
people's property rights.
"People should be able to use
their property the way they
want to," he said. "At the same
time, we need to do our utmost
to preserve the quality of life
people in our. small, rural
communities enjoy."
He said the family farm is in
need of help. "It is becoming
more and more difficult to
make. the family farm
economically viable," he said.
"We need to see what we can
do with the tax structure to
help preserve the family farm."

major issues in the campaign,

Jennings has spent
life working hard for
the community as
well as family
BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Ed Jennings Jr. (Democrat)
is one of a field of four
candidates in the race for the
state senate seat'in District 14,
which represents both
Bradford and Union counties.
Jennings' family has lived in
Florida for five generations.
Jennings currently lives in
Gainesville. He earned his..
bachelor's degree in political
science, with specializations in
Spanish and business
administration, from the
University of Florida. He said
he remains a dedicated Gator
fan.
While at, UF, Jennings
served as president of Florida
Blue Key and also of the Black
Student Union. His mother
was a public school teacher, so
education has been important
in his home for his entire
lifetime. His father owned a
small .business and served as a
Gainesville city commissioner.
.His father also earned a spot in
history by becoming that city's
first black mayor.
"My family taught me the
importance of working, hard,
not just for my family, but,for
the betterment of the
community," he said..-
'Jennings followed in his
father's footsteps-both into
business and into politics.
Jennings is president of
Jennings Development Group.'
This group was created with
the goal of helping Floridians
obtain safe and decent housing


to read and write and have a
firm grasp of geography," he
said. "I come from a
community (Gainesville) with
a lot of highly educated
people, but we should also not
lose sight of the fact that we
need good, basic education in
order to have a public that can
make informed choices and
make a good living in the
Communityy" '-';" '"".
Part of the solution would be'
providing more money so that
each school has the resources
it needs to provide that solid,
basic education. Oelrich
supports a plan that will ensure
that 65 percent of all education
funding makes its way into the
classroom, instead of being
used for administrative costs.
He also said he plans to
demand high standards of
accountability. Ensuring that
students are taught what they
will need in order to be
successful should be .a
legislative priority, he said.
Oelrich also..said that
protecting the North Florida
water supply will definitely be
an issue in the legislature in
the coming years. "It will grow
more crucial as time goes on
that we make sure no pipelines
are built to carry our water to
South Florida," he said. "We
need to encourage them to
develop their own methods of
supplying their water needs,
like desalinization (taking salt
out of ocean water to make it
drinkable). We should have
started on this 25 years ago,
but there is no time like the
present to begin."
Oelrich also said the
institution of the family needs
to be protected. "We need to
make sure that we respect the
family unit," he said. He said
he supports the Florida
Marriage Amendment that
defines marriage as occurring
between a man and a woman,
making same-sex marriages

Telegraph Staff Writer
The games that count won't
be played until Friday, Aug.
25, but area high school
football teams will face
competition this Friday, Aug.
18, in preseason kickoff
classics.
It's a chance for the
Bradford, Keystone Heights
and Union County, teams to get
some action in before the
regular season starts, but for
one of' the opponents, the
kickoff classic will mean a
whole lot more.
Matanzas High School,
Bradford's opponent, is
beginning its first year of
competition' at the varsity
level. The school opened last
year .in Flagler County, with
last year's team competing on
the junior varsity level only.
The Pirates are set to begin
play at.their own stadium this
year, but the field will not be
ready for the classic against
Bradford. The 7:30 p.m. game,
instead, will be played at
Flagler Palm Coast High
School in Bunnell.
It will be a full game
involving Bradford's varsity
unit, similar to the classic the
Tornadoes opened the 2005
season with.
The Tornadoes hosted Terry
Parker last year, defeating the
Braves 35-30. Running back
Rob Harris, who is a junior
this year, scored two
touchdowns for Bradford-one
on a 24-yard run and the other-
on a 28-yard reception.
Marcus Wilson, a senior for
the Tornadoes this year, also
scored on a one-handed, 40-
yard reception from
quarterback J.R. Petteway,
who has since graduated.
Bradford's other
touchdowns came on runs of 7
and 9 yards by graduate D.J.
McBride.
The Tornadoes did not allow
the Braves to have mahy
sustained drives, but a muffed
punt return and a fumble gave
Parker a short field to work
with en route to two scores.


Parker quarterbacks, though.
having touchdown passes of 10


and 36 yards, completed just 3-
of-I 1 passes. Take away a 67-
yard touchdown run 'and the
Tornadoes yielded an average
of just 1 yard per rushing
attempt.
Senior lineman Corian
Garrison finished the game
with 12 tackles. Junior lineman
Chuckie Covington had seven.,


Indians host fellow
Clay County school
Keystone will host Class 4A
Ridgeview in a 7- p.m. classic
in Keystone that will feature
both varsity and junior varsity
teams.
Ridgeview, playing in.
District 5 with last year's state
champion Nease, finished last
year with a 7-4 record,
qualifying for the playoffs as
district runner-up.
Keystone's preseason game
last year was quite a defensive
affair. In a half of play, the
Indians took a 6-0 win over
Newberry.
Running back Greg Taylor,
who is a junior this season, had
the lone score on a 2-yard
touchdown run.
Not only did the Indians
keep the Panthers out of the
end zone, but graduates Tony
Hamner, and Nick Salsbery


each had an interception.

Tigers, Raiders meet
again in preseason
Union County is set. to face
the same team it faced in last.-
year's .preseason classic. The
Tigers host the Class 3A Santa
Fe Raiders at 7:30 p.m., with a
the varsity teams playing in the
first half and the junior varsity d
teams in the second half.
The Raiders opened last
season with a win (after losing n
to the Tigers in the classic),,,
but little went right for them
after that. Santa Fe went 2-8,:
dropping those eight games by '
an average score of 34-9. ; .
Santa Fe came close to1
winning its preseason classic
against Union last year, but,
former Tigers kicker Fernando
de Castro connected on a 22-
yard field goal with 6.2'
seconds remaining to give his
team a 9-7 win in a half of
play.
Union's offense never found
the end zone, but standout,'
running back C.J. Spiller, who ,
is now at Clemson University,
returned a kickoff 99 yards for
a touchdown.
Spiller's return immediately
followed Santa Fe's only
score, which was set up by a:)
Union turnover at its own 35. 8

housing," he said. This year,
while still in the House,
Jennings said, "Several of my
colleagues and I led a
successful effort to spend a
historical amount on
affordable housing. As a result,
thousands of Floridians will
live the American dream of
homeownership.".
Healthcare is another major
issue in the campaign,
Jennings said.' He said access
to healthcare services needs to
be increased and needs to be
available to everyone-
including senior citizens and
those who live in both rural
areas and cities. "We have to
decide to join all of the other
industrialized countries in the
world and ensure every
Floridian has access to
affordable healthcare." he said.
"I sponsored legislation. to
address healthcare disparity in
the areas .of diabetes, high
blood pressure and cancer, but
we did not. go far enough.
Healthcare. is ,a human right
and should not be a privilege."


Jennings also said he plans
to build on legislation that he
originally sponsored in the
House that provides incentives
for law enforcement officers
and firefighters to obtain
housing in the communities
they serve. Ensuring- that
emergency personnel "first
responders" ,are housed in the
area 'they serve will 'improve
community safety, he said. 'He
said he would work. to pass
legislation that will provide
down payment assistance for
emergency personnel who are
buying homes in the area they
serve.
"These are just a few of the
new ideas that I plan to bring
to the State Senate," said
Jennings. "I believe that by
creating opportunities for
families to educate their .kids,
.find good, high-paN ing jobs,
and by reforming. : our.
insurance system,. we can
continue to make North
Florida the heart of Florida."

health care, environment,
economy, and most
importantly, the education of
our children," said McGriff.
Education dollars need to be
increased in several areas, he
said. "I am committed to
increasing funding for pre-K to
20 education, including teacher
and employee salaries in our
educational institutions," said
McGriff.
'.'I will also protect the
economic viability of the
University of Florida and
increase community college
funding. Improving vocational
education and expanding
scholarship and student loan
programs are top priorities," he
said.
While he tapped education
as the top priority, McGriff
said encouraging business
growth in order to stimulate
the economy is also important.
"Quality of life begins with
good, well-paying jobs. Jobs
promote family stability and
provide alternatives to
government services," he said.
"We must attract new
environmentally friendly
businesses and assist our
existing businesses that wish to
grow."
He also said attention would
be given to improving salaries
for public safety providers in
order to help ensure that top
officers remain with area
agencies. "I will work to.
increase the pay of correctional
officers and law enforcement
to enhance the safety.of our
citizens," he said.
McGriff said the
environment is another major
area of concern for him. "I am
strongly committed to
protecting Florida's important
natural resources," he said. "I
believe we should improve
enforcement of the ,Clean
Water Act in our state and we
should work to ensure that our
water quality is not endangered
by continuing population
growth. I oppose drilling for
oil or natural gas along
Florida's coastline and I
support- the Florida Forever
conservation program."
Making sure all Floridians
have adequate health care is
another issue McGriff said he
feels strongly' abotit. .'1 ill
work to improve access to
health care for everyone," he
said. "I want to increase
Medicaid funding for organ
transplant services and
improve transportation for
disabled residents of District
14. I will work hard to expand
programs for prenatal care,
child health insurance, child
abuse prevention, after-school
programs and juvenile crime
prevention."
As a longtime insurance
agent, McGriff said he is also
concerned about the state's
homeowner's insurance crisis.
Many insurers have declined to
write homeowner's insurance
in Florida anymore. Policy
rates have also increased. "The
state is on the verge of a
crisis," said McGriff. "Without
action, carriers will continue
pulling out and -leaving the
state to operate its own
insurance company as the
insurer of first, instead of last,


resort." He said the state's
properN insurance program is
already) more than $13 billion
in debt.
McGriff said he advocates
open filing for rates, a system
that would make it easier for
insurance companies to write
insurance in FIolida.
Removing some of the
"cumbersome hurdles that
have .arisen with our current
regulatory system" would
encourage more major
insurance companies to return
to writing, homeowner's
insurance in Florida, he said.
Having more insurance
companies writing policies, he
said, would increase
competition in the industry and
ultimately result in more
economical rates for property
owners.
McGriff is married to the
former Noel Mills of
Gainesville. They have five
children. Their daughter, Jana,
is married to Dean Grayson
and they have four children.
Sons Mark, Keith, Kevin and
Matthew, are married and have
a total of six children between
them.
McGriff has a long record of
community service. He
'recently served as co-chairman
of the American Heart
Association Heart Ball in
Gainesville. 'He is a youth
football sponsor for the Boys
& Girls Club, serves on the
board of directors of the
Civitan Regional Blood Center
and is a member of the board
of directors of the Fellowship
of Christian Athletes.
He is a member of both the
Gainesville Kiwahis Club and
the Rotary Club of Gainesville.
He serves on the Community
Advisory Board for the
Southeast Tissue Bank and on
the Health and Human
Performance Advisory Council
for UF.
The list of his past
involvement in community
service activities is too
extensive to print here.
McGriff played both football
and baseball for UF and was
inducted into the Gator Hall of
Fame in 1969. He is a member
of the Gainesville Quarterback
Club and the Gator
Touchdown Club and serves
on the board of directors for
the Gainesville Sports
Organizing Committee.
He earned a bronze medal in
.baseball irn the Pan Americair
Games in 1959 and played
professional baseball in the
Kansas City Athletics
Organization in 1961-62. The
Baltimore Colts and San Diego
Chargers also drafted McGriff
out of college to play in the
NFL.
McGriff is a bike tour
enthusiast and has cycled
thousands of miles across the
United States through the
years. Most recently, in 2005,
he cycled 200 miles round trip
from Ocala to Lake City and-
back again as a fund-raiser for
Take Stock in Children. He
also cycled 132 miles through
Georgia with the Tours of
Rural Southern Vistas. In
2004, Hurricane Francis
interrupted a 2,850-mile bike
tour he was participating in
that was to run from Seattle,
Wash., to the Kennedy Space
Center in Florida.

KHHS settles for second in preseason


Bradford, Union
volleyball teams have
already begun
regular season

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer;
It served as the start to a new
season, but the annual
Keystone Heights High School
Preseason Classic ended the
same way as it did last year,
with Fleming Island defeating
the host Indians.
Actually, the entire order of
finish in the classic was the
same as last year, with Orange
Park placing third and Clay
fourth.
Fleming Island defeated
Keystone in four games last
year, but this year's match
went to five games after the
Indians dropped the first two
games.
The Indians trailed 20-11 at
one point in the first game, but
were able to pull within three
points at 22-19 behind four

Continued from p. 3C

people might be something he
wanted to pursue in life.
Morford's father, Rob, was
an influence as a youth pastor,
but it was not until college that
Morford fully realized that
teaching was something he
wanted to do.
"I went to college for the
generic.business degree," he
said. "I was working with a
youth group (at the time), and I
enjoyed being around high
school kids, so it just made
sense to get into education."
As far as coaching, Morford
said he always wanted to be
around football.

Morford played the sport at
KHHS, earning first-team, all-.
state honors his junior and
senior years (he also lettered in
basketball and baseball). He
seemed set on attending
Auburn University when he
took a visit to North Carolina
"just to be nice," he said in a
1998 Telegraph.~Times, and
Monitor interview.


service points from Michelle
Houser. The Golden Eagles,
however, would go on to win
25-20.
Keystone got off to fast start
in the second game, getting
four service points from
Megan Poupard, to open up a
6-0 lead. Mallory Wasik had a
couple of kills during that
sequence.
Fleming Island would come
back, though, and eventually
take a 15-12 lead. Keystone
would never hold the lead
again, though the Indians did
tie the game at 23-all before
the Eagles won 25-23.
The third game was close
throughout, with' the/Indians
taking 15-14 lead after two
service points by Katie Taylor.
The Indians held the lead the
rest of the way, eventually
winning 25-20 after a return
error by Fleming Island with
Kim Russell serving.
A service ace by Russell
helped the Indians go up 15-7
in the fourth game. Wasik had
five service points to end the
game, giving Keystone a 25-16


However, Morford sensed
North Carolina was where God
wanted him to be and 'he
-cancelled scheduled visits to
Auburn and Florida.
He said his first three years
at North Carolina couldn't
have gone better. He worked
his way 'into the starting
lineup, but wound up back on
the bench after John Bunting
became head coach, replacing
Carl Torbush in December
2000.
Morford started all 11 games
in 2000.
"Nothing against the
coaches, but we just didn't see
eye to eye on a lot of things,"
Morford said.
He had. another year of
eligibility remaining after
earning his degree, but
Morford decided it was time to
move on with his life. That's
not ,to say he regretted his
decision to attend North
Carolina. He treasures the
memories of beating FSU
during his junior year and of
playing at stadiums of such
teams as FSU, Oklahoma and
Texas.
"It was an unbelievable
experience," he said. "It was"


win.
Kills. by Wasik and Taylor
helped the Indians lead early in
the deciding game of the
match,- but the Eagles scored
six straight points to go up 13-
5.
Fleming Island would win
by a score of 15-8.
Keystone and Fleming
Island reached : the
championship match by
defeating Clay and Orange
Park, respectively.
In the consolation match,
Orange Park defeated Clay in
four games.

UCHS is first team to

Union County began the
regular season with a loss on
the road against Bronson on


Aug. 14 (statistics were not

definitely difficult. It was a lot
of work all year round, but it
was well worth it. I enjoyed
my experience there."
If things had gone
differently at UNC-, maybe
Morford would've gotten a
chance to play in the NFL.
That would've given him the
opportunity to be richer, but
not happier, he said. He enjoys
working with high school
students.
Now he gets to do just that
in his hometown, and he gets
to trot out onto the field where
he once played when the
Indians open the season. The
Indians host Ridgeview Friday,
Aug. 18, in a preseason classic,
then open the season Friday,
Aug. 25, against Branford.
"It'll be fun," Morford said.

Page 10C TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR--C-SECTION Aug. 17,26


HORN
Continued from p. 2C
behind-the-scenes volunteer,
but has never held a paid
political post. He has
volunteered as the chairman of
the-Gators for Jeb organization
and is the immediate past
chairman of the Alachua
.County Republican Exeeutive-
Committee. He served as
president of- the UF Law
School Republicans and is a
former member of the Young
Republicans, College
Republicans and ,. Gator'
Republicans. During college,
he also completed an
internship in the office of
former State Sen. .George
Kirkpatrick
Horn characterizes himself
as a true consenatike. Horn
said he strongly endorses the
pending Florida Marriage
Amendment, which h defines
marriage as an institution that
occurs between a man and a
"oman-not between two
people of the same sex. He
also said he feels the Florida
ban on adoption of children by
ga. or lesbian couples s.h.ould_
stand.
He said his ,ie%'s are not
prompted by anN animosity
to%,ard homose\uals,- ho- "no special pro vision should
be made for alternate e
lifestNles that fall outside the
mainstream I do believe that
traditional marriage is unique,"
he said. Instead of dwelling on
the issue of banning same-sex
marriage, "I prefer to \ie% it
as uplifting traditional
heterosexual marriage-
instead," he said.
Horn is also \erN concerned
with veterans' _jrights. He-
served in the military himself
and his wife Kathy, has' a
master's degree in
occupational therapy and
works at the.,. Ve-terans
Administration in Gainesville,
He said there are a number of
veterans' issues that need the
attention of the legislature. He
said he would work to make
sure those issues got the
Attention they deserve.
Education is another major
issue in this race, Horn said.
He said more money for
schools is definitely needed,
but said attention must also be
given to';where the money will
come .from.-.;,"I, .too, am
concerned about class size, yet
I know that teachers will not


see a raise for decades if we
hamstring our county school
boards and administrators who
must implement the mandated
class size amendment," he
said.
Legislators must take a look
at realigning the education
budget, he said.
Horn also favors parental
report cards. "Not as a means
to shame.-or-criticize parents,"
he said, "but a means to
encourage average parents to
become better parents."
The report cards would
encourage parents to ensure
their children are at school on
time and prepared for class.
They would encourage parents


to sign off on homework, show
up for meetings with teachers
and administrators, and
become more engaged in theC
educational process, Horn said.
Increasing the number of
jobs available by helping
industry grow would also be a
priority, he said. "I'm talking
about biotech jobs and the like,
not service industry jobs
created by the expansion of
gambling," he said.
Other issues he named-
included keeping North
Florida's water in North
Florida, not piping it down
south. "I will strongly oppose
piping or redirecting water to
other areas of the state," he


said. He referred to those who
support piping water to South
Florida as_"water-rustlers'-and--
-said, "Our water is a
tremendous resource. We've
got to defend, it."
Horn said he also embraces
"our agricultural heritage" and
would work to'make sure the
Fair Trade*Agreements are
truly fair to the. farmers and
ranchers. He also said he
would work to continue
reforms to eminent domain
laws. "We need to continue, to
fight to make sure government
doesn't take folks' private
property," he said.
Port security, crime,
healthcare, gas prices, and the
