Word circulating about local job center


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


Open just a few weeks in the
Bradford Square Shopping
Center, business has picked up for
FloridaWorks since its relocation.
FloridaWorks' Tony Mangol said
the new location will help jobseekers
and employers seeking workers
identify the job center as a viable
and important service provider to the
community.


Pam Whittle of the North Florida
Regional Chamber of Commerce
touted the new center's visibility,
available parking and ease of
access. Indeed, Mango 'said traffic
to the center is much improved since
opening at 819 S. Walnut St.
"I think people are really
understanding we have the. means
to serve," he said. "I think more
and more employers, as they become
pleased with our services, that we'll
see an additional influx."


Governing Board Chairman Frank
McGeown said the new center is
proof that, through cooperation
between the chambers in Bradford
County and Gainesville and partners
like Arbor Education and Training,
FloridaWorks continues to get better
and better.
"I'mnproud of you aH do, and I jtist-
want to thank you," McGeown said
to the partners, board members and
employees prior to cutting the ribbon
on, the job center during the grand


opening ceremony last week.
Theie are six full-time staff
members at the center employed by
FloridaWorks-Arbor, Mangol said,
as well as partners like Communities
in Schools, Big Brothers, Big Sisters'
who also share space at the center.
Other partners include the school
boards of both Alachua and Bradford
counties,Three Rkivers Legal Services,
Experience Works and Santa Fe
Community College.

Controversial property tax plan unveiled as legislators enter special session


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
A new property tax reduction
scheme introduced by the Florida
Legislature in special session this
week quickly earned criticism
because of the foreseen impact on
school funding in Fiscal Year 2009
and beyond.
Others praised the plan for offering
property owners statewide a $31.6
billion savings over the next five
years. Legislators in support of the
plan, including Senate President Ken
Pruitt and House Speaker Marco
Rubio, called it the largest tax cut in
Florida history.
Rollbacks and future
caps
The two-part plan begins with
a mandated rollback and cap on
property tax revenue collected, by
cities, counties and special taxing
districts that would provide immediate
relief in FY 2008 (Oct.'1, 2007-Sept.
30, 2008). According to legislators,
the exact amount is based on the past
behavior of the taxing jurisdiction.
.Next year's property taxes would
be frozen at this year's (FY 2007)
levels minus a specified percentage,
although growth in revenue on the
value on new construction is allowed.
That specified percentage is based on
how rapidly a jurisdiction's property
taxes have grown over the past five
years compared to the state average.
To simplify matters, cities and
counties with similar tax growth were
grouped into categories and assigned
a reduction factor of 3, 5, 7 or 9
percent, with consideration given to
fiscally constrained governments
Simplified Formula:
FY"2007 revenue x% =
FY 2008 property tax revenue
Union County,, although it too
would be expected to rollback next
year's revenue to this year's levels,


would not have to subtract anything
additional off the top. (It had the lowest
percentage of tax revenue increase of
any county when compared to the
state average.) Bradford and Baker
counties would have to subtract
an additional 3 percent, and Clay
would have to subtract an additional
5 percent. The- reduction factor for


Starke and Macclenny is3 percent, but
smaller cities like BrookerH, ampton,
Lawtey, Lake Butler, Worttrington
Springs,-etc., would b-e pee ted to
subtract nothing additional. IKystone
Heights would have to subtract an
additional 5 percent.
Special taxing districts, (like a
water management district) are


automatically assigned a 3 percent
reduction factor.
Future tax rate increases would
be capped to grow with population
(construction) and growth in the
state's per capital personal income.
-There is bipartisan support in both
houses for the first part of the tax
cut plan, which can be approved


statutorily by a simple majority.
Legislators claim rollbacks and
caps on property tax revenue would
generate about half of the $31.6 billion
in anticipated savings over the next
five years. The remaining savings are
tied to the second part of the property
tax reduction plan. While the first

School board member raises concerns

over ESE director's certification


Honoring service and safety


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
At Monday night's school
board meeting, board member
David Smith asked Board
Attorney John Cooper what
the proper procedure was when
disagreeing with appointments
previously made by
Superintendent Harry Hatcher.
The problem, according
to Smith, was that when
Hatcher made his personnel
appointments for the 2007-08
school year, it was something
unexpectedly added to the
agenda at a previous board
meeting, without ample time for
members to ask any questions
they may have.
According to the law, if
a board member does not
support a recommendation of
an appointment made by the
superintendent, he or she must
show just cause for doing so.
"Since this was something
added at the last minute, there
was not enough time to even see
if there was a just cause for not
agreeing with his decisions,"
Smith said.
Two days after that meeting,
Smith did express his concern
to Hatcher. In reviewing the
job descriptions approved by
the board in February of this
year, Smith said he found
that Karl Wendell, director of
Exceptional Student Education,


or ESE, was not qualified for
the position he was reappointed
to.
The job description in
question requires the applicant
to have a certificate of
endorsement in one or more
areas of exceptional student
education, an endorsement
Wendell does not possess.
When Wendell was originally
appointed as director of ESE,
the job description required
the applicant to possess either
a certificate in administration
and supervision/educational
leadership or exceptional
student education.
Wendell is currently certified
through the Department of
Education with an endorsement
for physical education grades
6-12 and for all grade levels as
a school principal.
"When we as board members
created and approved the job
updated job descriptions at the
Feb. 12 meeting, we obviously
felt anyone in that particular
position should have ESE
certification," Smith said. "I
don't have an axe to grind with
anyone, but this, along with
some other unsettling events
within the ESE department,
brought me to the point where
I felt I had to speak up in the
best interests of the children
we serve."
Cooper explained that if
he felt he did in fact have


just cause, Smith could make
a motion for the board to
reconsider. However, such
a motion would require all
previous appointments made
by Hatcher at the same time
as Wendell's to be nullified
and brought back up for re-
approval.
School Board Member
Vivian Chappell stated that
she understood things a little
differently when it came to
making changes to the job
descriptions.
"I thought anyone already
working in a position that had
its job description changed
was not affected by any new
requirements. If they fit the
requirements when originally
appointed, then any new
changes would not apply to
them," she said.
Even so, Smith said he felt
that he had just cause to ask the
board to vote on reconsidering
Hatcher's list of previous
appointments. The board denied
the motion by a vote of 4-1,
with only Smith in favor.
"I had to do what I felt was
right," Smith said. "I have no
doubt in my mind that Wendell
could pass the certification
requirements with the state
and receive an endorsement.
That is one of the prerogatives
available to Hatcher," he said.
Wendell was not in attendance
at the school board meeting.

ZONING
Continued from p. 1A

,consideration before the city
zoning board, explaining that
the property in question lies in
his district but he has no personal
interest in the property. Then
he made another admission
that caught the attorney's
attention. Nugent admitted he
had spoken to the mayor and
other commissioners prior to
the meeting to say he would not
be voting on the matter.
Mutch explained that Florida
Statutes require commissioners
to vote when they are present
at the meeting, so he asked
Nugent to recuse himself and
leave the meeting.
City Attorney Terry Brown
agreed that if Nugent was
present he would have to
participate, but did not agree
that Nugent's presence at the
zoning board meeting was a
conflict that should preclude
him from participating. If
Nugent felt it was, Brown said
Nugent could leave the meeting
until the matter was resolved.
Nugent said he didn't mind
leaving because he didn't want
there to be a conflict, but he
defended his actions, saying
he hadn't "read anywhere"
that a citizen, even a public
official, couldn't attend a public
meeting.
Mutch then asserted that
Nugent discussing his intention
not to vote with commissioners
prior to the meeting was
a violation of the state's
Government in. the Sunshine
Law.
Not only did the city attorney
contest the assertion that
Nugent had broken the law,
Brown said he was "somewhat
offended" that the petitioner
and his attorney had raised the
issues in this manner without
first advising him of the issues
so that the matter could be
"resolved in a timely way."
Dudley Hardy, one of the
two rezoning applicants, said
he had, in fact, left messages
at the attorney's office that day,
but Brown noted that there had
been a longer period of time
(nearly two weeks) between
the zoning board meeting
and the meeting of the city
commission.
Brown said the city
commission could consider
referring the case to an
administrative law judge (as
the county commission did with
a yet-to-be-resolved rezoning
issue near Hampton) to make
sure there would be a totally
unbiased decision made with
regard to the application.
Brown said he was concerned
that saying the Sunshine Law
had been violated cast an unfair
shadow on city commissioners
when Nugent never said he
had discussed the merits of the
issue with commissioners, only
that he may not be able to vote.
Mayor Carolyn Spooner said
that statement was made to her
in passing and that she hadn't
discussed the matter at all with
Nugent.
Mutch said he and his clients
had no problem moving forward
in Nugent's absence.
"We do not have a
problem with the other four
commissioners, but we do have
a problem with Mr. Nugent,
who should not have attended .
the planning and zoning board
meeting," he said.
Nugent said he didn't know
he couldn't attend a zoning
board meeting and that he
did so at the request of his
constituents. He said he had no
problem leaving the room so
the other four commissioners
could conduct the first public
hearing, and they did so while
he waited in the city manager's
office for more than an hour
and a half.
Initial decision
in favor of
development
Ultimately the four remaining


commissioners voted to approve
the requested rezoning on first
reading June 5, remaining
consistent., with their prior
support for the project.
Not only has the city
commission previously
granted a future land use map
amendment for medium density
residential development on the
property, the board also agreed
to defer connection fees so the
developers could count that
deferral as a local government
contribution on the their
application for state housing
funds.


Final approval of the
application would pave the
way for development firm
BeacHouse LLC to build
affordable townhouses.
The city's zoning board
had recommended denial
of the application based
on four of seven criteria in
the land development code,
including compatibility of
the proposed classification
with the surrounding property
and the impact granting the
zoning change would have
on those properties. Physical
site characteristics like soil,
topography, -drainage, flood
zone and vegetation were also
taken into consideration by the
board.
Although residents' concerns
involved everything from
drainage and flooding to
traffic congestion, their fears
weren't enough to counter
expert testimony from a land
use planner in support of the
project during the first hearing
before the commission. Hardy
brought in attorney Mutch,
and Mutch in turn questioned
planner Herbert Platt about the
potential impact of the proposed
development.
Much of the discussion
centered around traffic
concurrency. According to the
report prepared by the North
Central Florida Regional
Planning Council, the additional
number of trips generated by.
the development would not
reduce the level of service,
but resident Karen Adams
was quick to point out that the
report focused on S.R. 100 and
S.R. 230, but it ignored Colley
Road. Ingress and egress to
the townhouses would be from
Colley Road, which residents
claim is already congested
due to residential and through
traffic as well as traffic to the
hospital, elementary school and
nursing home.
Platt indicated there
shouldn't be an increase in
traffic to the school from the
development since it is within
walking distance to the school,
but when pressed by the city's
attorney, Platt said he couldn't
offer a firm opinion on the
Impact of development to traffic
conditions on Colley Road
since traffic count and other
data'were not available. Later
he said he didn't intuitively
think the level of service on
the road would be negatively
affected.
Later testimony from a
resident on the impact to school
population was withdrawn
as hearsay, however, since a
school representative wasn't
actually present to comment on
capacity.
As for limited drainage
due to poor soil, Platt said
engineering could provide
remedial solutions to plan for
storm water runoff.
Elizabeth Vemales, vice
president of the development
firm and president of the
company that will manage the
development, testified that
the combined income would
have to be at least $18,000 for
residents seeking to live in the
development. The maximum
income would be $25,560,
based on a three-bedroom,
three-person household, she
said.
BeacHouse's Chris Straka
was asked if there would be a
negative effect to surrounding
properties by the addition
of an affordable housing
development, biut he maintained
there should not be if such a
development is well maintained
and even said there could be
a positive impact, a comment
ridiculed by residents.
None of the testimony at the
first public hearing seemed
to pacify residents, several
of whom offered their own
point of view of the impact
of the project if the rezoning
application was approved.


Cassie Ricks said that when
she pulls out of her driveway
between 7:15 and 7:45 a.m.,
she has to wait because traffic
dropping off students at the
school has backed up on Colley
Road. She called the planning
council report invalid because
it doesn't address Colley Road
traffic.
Adams commented on
traffic congestion, noise and
drainage. Adams wanted to
know what would happen
to the water draining across
several properties and into
the creek if fill is added to
development properties during
construction. Commissioner
Wilbur Waters interjected that
retention requirements for the
development should address
storm water issues, but residents
felt raising the elevation of the
development properties even a
little would cause flooding on
their land. Ricks said adding
so much impervious surface
on the development property
would worsen runoff problems
for others in the neighborhood.
Mutch, in his closing, said
the determination to be made
by the commission was whether
or not the applicant had proven
with "competent, substantial-
evidence" that the criteria for
rezoning in the comprehensive
plan had been met.
Both the regional planning
council and the zoning
department said the criteria
had been met, and the board
voted 4-0, in Nugent's absence,
to approve the rezoning
application.
The second and final hearing
on June 12, however, was a no
go when John Cooper, the school
board's attorney, and Jennifer
Springfield, an attorney hired to
represent concerned residents,
asked the city commission for
a continuance.
Springfield was retained
after the first hearing and asked
for additional time to prepared
a case on behalf of'her clients.
Cooper said the school board
hadn't been given adequate
notice and opportunity to
participate regarding a project
it believes could have a
significant impact on Southside
Elementary as required by the
interlocal agreement between
the city and school board.
The school board may have
also neglected its responsibility
under the agreement to appoint
a nonvoting member to the
city's zoning board who could
keep the school system up to
date on such developments and
present the school board's point
of view during zoning board
meetings.
In addition lingering concern
over Southside Elementary,
questions still remain about
. the planning council report
on the potential impact of
additional traffic, with differing
statements presented as to the
planning council's awareness
of ingress and egress to Colley
Road versus S.R. 100.
The city commission granted
the continuance (3-1, with
Waters dissenting), but no
future date has been set for the
final hearing.
The second hearing had been
moved from June 19 to June 12
to accommodate the developer's
application for construction
funds from the Florida Housing
Finance Corporation. Since the
rezoning process will not be
complete before the due date
of the funding request, the
attorney for the property owners
indicated the city could face
damages for any loss of income
experienced by his clients.The
delay, however, does not mean
the project will go away, Mutch
said.

plan would, which has lead to
questions about the likelihood
of it implementation.
Homestead
exemption
Part two of the plan doesn't
deal with tax rates. It would
instead provide deeper tax
cuts beginning in FY 2009
by increasing homestead
exemption. The exemption
allowed would be based on a
percentage of a homesteaded
property's just value.
Voter approval of a
constitutional amendment
during the January presidential
preference primary would be
required to implement this part
of the Legislature's plan.
The current Save our Homes
,exemption would be replaced
with what legislators are
calling a "super exemption"


Homesteaded property would
receive a 75 percent exemption
off of the first $200,000 of a
home's value, with the minimum
exemption being $50,000 per
homestead. Another 15 percent
exemption would apply to the
next $300,000 in value.
Lawmakers say more than
70 percent of homesteaded
properties would receive a
greater benefit under the new
exemption, with the FY 2009
reduction averaging $1,300
(combing both parts of the tax
reduction plan). In Bradford
County, nearly 97 percent
would receive a greater benefit
under the new exemption, with
the average savings being $553,
or 48 percent.
Those few receiving a greater
benefit under Save Our Homes
would be grandfathered in
and allowed to keep their, old
benefit, according to the state.
Existing "exemptions that
provide additional savings to

and agricultural lands would be

Although the county
commission reduced the
millage rate from 10 mills to
9.5 mills, then to the current
9.3756 mills, revenue from
property taxes has increased
with the increase in taxable
value of properties.

$617,350,560
$677,143,547 9.6%
$809,014,557 19.5%


Those increases in value
resulted in an increase in
property tax revenue.

$7,537,387


With those increases, there
has been more money to go
around. Law enforcement, for
example, has a dedicated two
mills, and the sheriff's office
and jail have seen property tax


funding increase from $1.19
million in 2005 to $1.6 million
in 2007, or 35 percent. The
general fund, which receives
the lion's share of property tax
revenue, has seen that revenue
increase from $4.28 million in
2005 to $5.69 million in 2007,
or 33 percent.
State legislators may point
to those increases to say local
government revenue generation
has outpaced economic growth
and burdened property owners,
even as local government
officials argue they are trying
to meet the growing demand
for essential, services and
absorbing costs they. have little
control over, like the cost of
fuel and insurance.
The special session is
scheduled to last through June
21, and there appears to be
general consensus on mandating
revenue rollbacks. If there is
not consensus to put homestead
exemption to the voters, there
is already talk of another
special session in September,
with Republicans using the
interim to build support for the
amendment.

Eagle Scout project benefits new library


The Bradford County Public
Library was the recipient of a
local Boy Scout's Eagle
project.
While planning his Eagle
project, David Weeks decided
he wanted to do something for
the new library. He came up
the with idea of a book sale to
raise money to purchase items
for the children's area of the
new library.
Weeks says he practically
grew up at the library as his
mother, Cyndy Weeks, works
there. He attended many
programs and afternoons at the
library and noticed the lack of
seating for children and adults
and wanted to do something
about it.
Over 101 hours were
involved in planning and
carrying out the book sale.
More than 3,000 books, tapes,
records, etc. were donated.
Weeks' goal was to raise
$500 to use towards buying
furniture, but due to an
overwhelming response,
$1,393 was raised.
A rocking chair for
storytime was purchased along
with a set of caterpillar
cushions, extra floor cushions,
a soft plush floor pillow and
board books. All items will be
used in the new library.
Weeks is a 10th-grader at
Bradford High. He began
scouts as a Tiger Cub and has
been a member of BSA Troop
70 for more than four years.
If you are interested in fund-
raising or donating to the new
library, call or stop by 105 E.
Jackson St. in Starke or call
(904) 964-6400.

Lawtey water rates

may be on the rise


Once upon a time, in a preschool not so far away ...


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer

At a city of Lawtey public
workshop held on June 6,
Mayor Carlton Jones gave a
basic proposal to increase the
city's monthly water rates. For
the 300 residences affected, the
mayor proposed to raise the
base water rate from $8 to $10
for the first 3,000 gallons of
water useage.
An additional fee of $2.50
would be charged for every
1,000 gallons of water used
after the first 3,000 gallons.
Residents outside the city limits
would still pay an additional 25
percent surcharge.
Commercial rates, which
have always been the same
as residential rates, are being
proposed at the rate of $30
for the first 3,000 gallons and
$3.50 for every 1,000 gallons
after that.
For a number of years, the
water rates in Lawtey have
been relatively low for its
consumers.
"On average, the Lawtey
Shell uses 473,000 gallons of
water a year and they have only
been paying $20 a month for
water service," Jones said.
The board also discussed
charging residential customers
a $50 deposit for new service
and $150 for commercial
customers.
Not only is the city' losing
money every month due to low
rates and a deteriorating system,
Council Member Jimmie Scott
stated that Lawtey residents
have a history of pulling up
to hydrants and illegally
pumping water. Some residents
have even, used the' hydrants
to fill their ponds with water,
often stating they were given
permission by someone else to
do so.
When water is drawn from a
hydrant, the process often stirs
up sediment that discolors the
water going into nearby homes.
It may also introduce chemical
contaminants into the public.
water system. ,
"State law imposes steep
fine and even jail time, but
again, the police department
has stated they must catch the
person in the act," Jones said.
Citizens in attendance were
encouraging the board to
actually increase the rates even
higher, feeling that they would

It would take seven years to
get us, to the needed $395,000
for updating the water system,
if the money isn't needed for
something else.
There are numerous issues
surrounding uncollected water
fees. Generally, if a person
does not pay their water bill, a
lock is put on the meter and the
service is shut off.
In Lawtey, several customers
have broken the locks and
turned their water service
back on, some continuing to
do this regularly. City clerk
Lisa Hartley said the police
department was called to such a
location and took photographs,

but officers said they were
unable to do anything about it
because they did not personally
witness the destruction of city
property.
Jones said that if the police
department writes an incident
report, then there should'be no
problem with the city seeking
prosecution.
Jones said that in regards
to raising the water rates, an
ordinance would need to be
prepared and advertised as a
separate public hearing prior to
a final vote being made.
The date of the hearing has
not been announced, and Jones
said that it would not take place
before the city held its next
regularly scheduled public
meeting.
Also discussed was adding a
$5 monthly garbage pickup fee
for residences inside the Lawtey
city limits. Residences outside
the city limits do not receive
curbside garbage pickup and
would not be responsible for
this fee.
If implemented, this would
be the first time in the history
of Lawtey the city has charged
its residents a garbage. pickup
fee.
At the close of the meeting,
council members felt they
needed to research the matter
further to decide what monthly
rate would be feasible to offset
garbage pickup costs.

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

With two commissioners for,
two against and one undecided,
the city of Starke seems to
be moving toward the slow
but eventual establishment of
its own building and zoning
office.
Currently the county's office
handles those matters for the
city of Starke and keeps the
revenue associated with those
responsibilities. Meanwhile
the city continues to expend
money through advertising and
site plan review costs that it
is not recouping, even though
zoning is usually considered to
be self-supporting with fees for
service.
After a prior workshop with
the county commission over
interlocal agreement matters
that, in part, addressed zoning
costs, the city commission
held its own workshop June'
5 to consider running its own
office.
According to Operations
Manager Ricky Thompson, the
city has spent around $17,000
in advertising costs that the
current system doesn't allow
for the city to recover. The
figure was more than $25,000
during the previous fiscal year.
Thompson said the city
would have to create a position
if the city were to handle its
own zoning matters or assign
responsibility for zoning to the
yet-to-be-hired project director,
which is Thompson's former
position. If the city wanted to
take on the responsibility of the
building side of the office as
well, Thompson said he thought
contracting with an inspector
two to three days a week might
be the way to go.
Commissioner Tommy
Chastain said allowing the
project director to cover zoning
would allow the city to have an
in-house zoning office and stay
on top of what is happening
with regard to zoning.
Mayor Carolyn Spooner,
on the other hand, said it's
important for the commission
to look at what it's really asking
for. The hands of city staff are
already full, she said.
"It scares me to death,
because we don't have the
expertise at this time or the

manpower to do it," Spooner
said. "For the things we
currently have to manage, we
are having difficulty doing
that, and to take on this extra
responsibility is going to be a
greater headache."
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
agreed, saying the commission
was "opening up a can' of
worms."
To get a better idea of how
much workisinvolved,Chastain
asked county Zoning Director
Nora Thompson just how
much time her office spends on
Starke zoning matters. She put
-that number at about 20 hours
a week for herself and each of
her employees.
City Clerk Linda Johns'
objections were primarily
financial, and she reminded
commissioners they didn't yet
know how much revenue they
would have to work with in the
coming year. She said it's not
feasible for the city to take on,
additional costs. If advertising
expenditures are the issue, then
the city needs to raise .-zoning
fees to cover those costs, she
said.
To the money issue, Chastain
said the project ;aldrector's

and fees are supposed to cover
the costs of running a zoning
office. Starke is "to the point
it needs to be doing its own
thing," he said.
Through May 23, the building
and zoning office had collected
nearly $45,000 in building
and zoning fees for business
exclusive to the city of Starke
since Oct. 1. Based on that
number and additional fees the
city may charge, Commissioner
Danny Nugent said he was
leaning toward Chastain's
position and wanted to see if it
was feasible for the city to do
zoning.
If this is the direction the
city wants to go, then Johns
suggested the city ease into it,
even placing someone in the


county office to learn the trade
before opening an office in city
hall. Waters agreed, though,
like Spooner, he is reluctant
to see the city take over its
zoning.
"If I was in the county's
shoes, I'd say, 'Please, city,
take this headache,'" he said.
The only commissioner not
to express a preference was
Travis Woods. He suggested
the city and county proceed
with signing the interlocal
agreement, and said if the
county "wants to give it to
us bad enough," meaning
responsibility for city zoning,
then the commission can make
other arrangements down the
road.

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



Vaughan takes jokes in stride for serious project


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
He was accused of having a
job that required him to do
little work. His golf game was
ridiculed, as was his love for
his alma mater's football team.
He was taken to task by his
father-in-law and even had
cracks made about him by his
own pastor.
It sounds like Terry
Vaughan was having a bad
day, but nothing could be
further from the truth as he
was surrounded by friends at
an event that raised
approximately $6,000 for the
Kiwanis Kids Zone of the new
Bradford County public
library.
Vaughan, the Bradford
County supervisor of elections,
was roasted as part of a
Kiwanis Club of Starke fund-
raiser. All the money raised
from ticket sales will go
toward the club-sponsored
children's area of the soon-to-
be-opened library, plus several
of Vaughan's professional
colleagues got together and
donated another $1,850, which
was presented to club president


Cheryl Canova by Bill Cowles,
the Orange County supervisor
of elections.
"This is a tremendous
surprise," said Vaughan, who
is also chair of the library
advisory committee.
That was surely one of the
highlights of the evening.
Another, judingby the crowd's
response, was when Vaughan's
father-in-law, Bill Nix, took
his turn as roaster\He played
the part of dissatisfied father-
in-law well, making fun of his
son-in-law's appearance,
suggesting Vaughan's former
moustache made him look like
a cross between Adolph Hitler
and Groucho Marx, and
suggesting he wished his
daughter Jennifer had hooked\
up with someone else.
"When Terry first came
around our house about 23
years ago, I thought he would
be like all the other guys-
gone in two weeks," Nix- said.
"It didn't happen.
"Jennifer finally got around
to asking what I thought of
Terry. I said I'd think a lot
more of him if he was dating
someone else's daughter. It


Terry Vaughan (left) laughs at something said by his
father-in-law, Bill Nix.


A group of supervisors of elections contributed to the are: Vaughan, Liz Horne (Columbia County supervisor),
fund-raiser by making a donation of $1,850. The Susan Gill (Citrus County supervisor), Babs Montpetit
supervisors who were present at the roast presented (Union County supervisor), Penny Halybbrton (St.

didn't happen."
Nix went on to say that
when it became obvious his
daughter was going to marry
Vaughan, he held out hope that
they would move away to a
bigger town. Guess what?
That's right. "It didn't
happen."
Afterward, Vaughan said,
"They say you can pick your
nose and you can pick your
friends, but you can't pick
your family. When you think
about it, you can pick your
father-in-law. What was I
thinking?"
Vaughan had his chance to
respond to each of his roasters,
which ensured there were
jokes aplenty throughout the
event. For example, Vaughan,
after hearing Steve Denmark's
remarks, told everyone in
attendance he would be
handing out coupons good for
25 percent off at Rooms to Go
(Denmark owns Denmark
Furniture in Starke).
Vaughan did not even hold
back when it came to
addressing his pastor, Mike
Hutcherson of First United
Methodist Church of Starke.

"Many of you know I have
trouble with insomnia except
for about 30 minutes each
Sunday," Vaughan said.
Insomnia is not Vaughan's
only trouble. Judging by
several of the roasters'
remarks, Vaughan has quite a
bit of trouble playing golf or,
to be more precise, keeping
his ball in play.
Hutcherson said one day
Vaughan was constantly losing
his ball. It ended up in the
woods, in the swamp or under

Bradford commissioners fear tax cuts


Bradford County Commissioners
are expecting a mandate to reduce
*county operating costs as result of a
special session of the Legislature that
began this week.
The general consensus is that the
Legislature will change the formula
for determining tax amounts. by
increasing exemptions and rolling
back current assessments. During the
regular session, Rep. Marco Rubio
introduced a bill to reduce county tax
revenues and replace the lost revenue
with an increased sales tax, but the
bill failed for lack of agreement.
Legislators apparently agree that
the cost of county government has
increased at a faster rate than the rate
of inflation, and will attempt to bring
the two figures together during the
special session.
Bradford County Commissioner
John Cooper says the county has been
cognizant of the situation for-the past
18 months, but he doesn't think the
cost of running Bradford County has
exceeded the inflation rate. However,
Bradford commissioners have already
advised constitutional officers and
department heads to scale back their
funding requests for Fiscal Year 2007-
08 by 6 percent and will revisit their
advice when the Legislature makes a
final decision.
Cooper says the members of
Small County Coalition, most of
which are located in the Florida
panhandle, already provide only
base governmental services to their
residents, and reductions in spending
won't be easy without cutting into
essential services. Constitutional
officers were dismayed by the request
to reduce spending, saying they
already operate a "tight ship," and any
reduction in operating budgets will
necessitate a reduction in services to
the people they serve.
County officials are in a quandary,
wondering where budget cuts can be
made without reducing personnel, but
if substantial reductions are made by
the Legislature, heads will roll. Sheriff
Bob Milner is frank in saying that
a 6 percent reduction in his budget,
requested by commissioners, will
equate to the loss of four positions in
his office.
County Clerk Ray Norman says
his office spends tax funds in three
areas, personnel, office supplies and
maintenance agreements. He has
one unfilled, position in his budget
which will remain unfilled, thereby
reducing his budget slightly. He has
not decided on other.possible areas to
reduce his operating costs.
Clay County commissioners have
advised their manager, Fritz Behring,
to fashion a budget that could lower
property taxes by as much as 20 percent
in an effort to roll back millage from
$8.75 per $1,000 in taxable property


to $7 per mill. Behring said, "The real
party does not begin now. This is just
the first dance." His reference was
to the Legislature passing tax reform
this year, then having voter approval
on the ballot in January 2008, which
would affect the next budget.
Bradford County general fund
budgets are shown for the years 2001-
2007, which are not only the amounts
generated by ad valorem taxes, but
represent the amounts the county
commissioners authorized the various
departments to spend, based on an
estimate of expected income from
real estate taxes. Any unencumbered
money left in accounts at the end of
the fiscal year (Sept. 30) reverts to the
general fund.

Obviously, the budgeted amounts
represent an excess of county budgets
over and above the inflation rate
which hovers around 3.5 percent per
year. County commissioners have
their work cut out for them; it may be
. an impossible chore.
Cooper points out that millage was
lowered from 10 mills in 2004 to 9.5
mills for the next three years, and
lowered to 9.3756 for 2007. Revenue
for the seven-year period has increased
from (2000) $5.867 million to (2006)
$7.689 million because property
values in the county have increased
through property evaluations and new
construction.
Cooper has a valid point, but the fact
remains, expenditures increase each
year to absorb increased revenues.
Admittedly, fund balances have also
increased nearly $2 million (to $4.4
million) during the same period, which
represents an increase in surplus, a
plus for county management.

Dear Editor:
Recently I was visiting my
family in Starke. I was so
excited to see downtown
Starke. The new restaurants and
new facades are fantastic.
I took the opportunity to eat
at The Sugar Tree and so
enjoyed myself. I will be
visiting in the near future and
will make a point to.check out
Whale Tales, Charlotte's Bistro
and all the other new places in
town.
I am a former merchant of
downtown Starke and I am so
proud of downtown merchants
and happy for their success. I
think downtown Starke offers
that wonderful main street
shopping experience that
everyone is looking for these
days.
Just wanted to let downtown
merchants know that their
efforts are so appreciated and I
will support them everytime I
am in town.

You can make
a change only
at the voting
booth
Dear Editor:
The cross has been removed
from the water tower in Starke
and there is a sign along the
highway that a lot of people
don't like. According to current
interpretation of the law, the
cross had to be removed from
government owned property.
Whether or not that
interpretation of the law is
either valid or fair is beside the
point, because the rule of law
must prevail.
The same is true of the sign
advertising an adult only
facility in Waldo. It does not
contain any verbiage that is
either pornographic or in any
other way illegal.
The real effect on the
community as a whole is
probably very little, if any;
Surely the Christian segment
of our population hasn't
changed their collective minds
about God and Jesus because
the cross came down "and!
certainly a sign that is no more'
suggestive than 90 percent of
current television fare is not
going to hurt anyone either.
As for the children, trying to
hide reality from them is not
going to teach m to live in
the real world. In my humble
opinion, teaching them about
the realities of the world and
the effect that those realities
will have on their welfare is a
much better way to deal with
the problem.
The real problem is not that
the law was followed, but it is
that there have been so many
liberal interpretations of the
law in a country that was
founded based on religious
principles so deeply held that


our money carries the
statement "In God we Trust,"
plus many other similar
references to God in so many
public edifices in Washington.
The fact is that recent events
in our county indicate that the
secular/humanist movem-ent
that 'has been insidiously
permeating our government for
the past 50 or more years is
alive and well. The movement
in fact is gaining strength.
God has been attacked over
and over by the liberal
politicians and judges that we
elect and/or appoint. In my
opinion these people have
looked to an often used
statement that in fact is not
viable. They say as loudly as
possible that the authors of our
constitution mandated that
there should be a definite
separation between church and
state.

The Constitution of the
United States says nothing of
the kind. It simply states that
congress shall not be allowed
to establish one particular
religion as a state religion.
The exact wording of the
first amendment is as follows:
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof; or abridging
the freedom of speech, or of the
press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble, and to
petition the government for a
redress of grievances."
The only way to bring about
a change is at the voting booth.
and by contacting your senators
and representatives. You can
also get involved at the grass
roots level with the party of
your choice to locate and
promote good candidates at the
local level. You can help if


you so desire.

Roast victim
says 'thanks'
Dear Editor:
Several weeks ago, I received
a phone call from Steve
Denmark, the fund-raising
chairman for the Kiwanis Club
of Starke, of which I am a
proud member.
"Terry," Denmark said, "the
Kiwanis Board met today and
decided to put together a fund-
raiser for the new library."
"Great news," I responded.
"As chairman of the Library
Advisory Board, I am thrilled
we are doing this. What type of
fund-raiser did you have in
mind?"
"A roast," was his answer.
"Good idea. Who do you
plan to roast," I naively asked.
"You," was Denmark's
succinct reply.
I almost fell out of my chair.
Under the leadership of
President Cheryl Canova, the
Kiwanis Club has agreed to
fund the furnishings for the
children's reading room in the
new library, to be known as
the "Kiwanis Kids Zone."
This effort will provide a
tremendous boost in the battle
against illiteracy.
While a bit embarrassed, I
proudly served as the victim at
the roast last Saturday evening
at the Starke Golf and Country
Club.
It was an evening of fun,
fellowship and laughter. Nearly
$6,000 was raised for the
children's reading room.
Again, thanks to all who
made this possible.

CRIME


Putnam man
found guilty
murder, arson
A 43-year-old Florahome
man was sentenced to life in
prison for the 2004 murder of
his girlfriend.
Randy Wayne Seal was
indicted Sept. 29, 2004, for
the murder of Tscharna
Hampton. The trial was
delayed until last month when
a jury found Seal guilty of
first-degree murder and first-
degree arson.
On Jan. 3, 2004, Putnam
County firefighters responded
to a residential fire on North
Holly Avenue in Florahome.
The fire was in a converted
shed on Seal's family'property
where he and Hampton
sometimes lived.
After firefighters
extinguished the blaze,
deputies found Hampton's
body inside the building. An
intense scene investigation by
detectives from the Florida
State Fire Marshal's Office
(SFM) revealed the fire had
been intentionally set and
Hampton died as a result of the
fire.
Seal told investigators he
and Hampton had been at the
residence drinking. Seal said he
left to go to his parents'
residence, which is on the
same property, while Hampton
went to the bathroom. He was
with his parents when he
learned that the structure was

on fire and that Hampton was
still inside, according to
Sheriff Taylor Douglas.
Seal's public defender and
attorneys maintained the fire
was accidental.
The jury disagreed. On May
24 Seal was found guilty of
the murder and the fire. He was
sentenced to life in prison
without parole, according to
Assistant State Attorney
Matthew Cline.
Hampton, who was a
registered nurse in the area,
was employed at Shands Starke
at one time.
Her children live in the
Keystone Heights area.
Former coworkers said she
was an awesome nurse and was
really missed.

gets man
arrested
in Starke
An Orange Park man was
arrested June 6 in Starke for
road rage.
The victim stated he was
northbound on U.S. 301 when
the driver of a white van yelled

Weigand was charged with
aggravated assault. A $15,000
surety bond was posted for his

Carol Milner (right) sets a Spongebob Squarepants
cookie jar in front of Terry Vaughan. Vaughan has
been taking a fair amount of grief since he was
spied wearing Spongebob Squarepants pajamas in
the hospital.


as positive and happy as
Vaughan. Wilson's response?
"For God's sake, the man
doesn't work for a living. Let's
be honest here. He's
accountable one day every four
years."
Hutcherson added, "Terry's
been in public service for
many years. Some day he
wants to get a real job."
Maybe when Vaughan gets a
real job, he will buy himself a
pair of adult pajamas. The
story came out during the roast.
that Vaughan, during a
hospital stay, was presented
with a pair of pajamas to wear
by his wife. They were
Spongebob Squarepants
pajamas.
Mark Anderson, the Bay
County supervisor of elections
whose son was in the hospital
at the same time, saw Vaughan
wearing them. Ever since,
Anderson has been sending
Spongebob Squarepants
paraphernalia.
Spongebob was present at
the roast, thanks to Milner,


who produced a Spongebob
lunchbox, stress reliever and
cookie jar. Then, several of the
audience members donned
Spongebob masks, which had
been handed out prior .to the
roast.
Regardless of what kind of
pajamas Vaughan wears, the
roasters all expressed their
admiration for him when they
were done making jokes at his
expense. Vaughan, who enjoys
a good laugh as much as
anyone, was gracious at the
event's conlcusion, thanking
everyone for their friendship
and their desire to help support


the library project.
"I'm a very rich person
because of friends like you,"
he said.

There was plenty of
laughter at the event.
RIGHT: Steve Denmark
has a chance to enjoy
the program during a
break from his emcee
duties (he was also one
of the roasters).
BELOW: This happy trio
consists of (I-r) Jim
Buehne, Sylvia Tatum
and Ann Wilson.

particular ball. Hutcherson said
Vaughan replied that he
couldn't because "it's my
lucky ball."
"If golf is relaxing, he tells
me you're not playing it right.
He must be playing it right,"
Hutcherson said, adding that
Vaughan might want to take
up bowling-it's not as easy to
lose the balls.
Denmark drew laughs while
painting the image of Vaughan
wearing $100 pants and $150
shoes while "walking through
a snake-infested swamp
looking for a $1.25 golf ball."
Roaster Scott Wilson, the
former head football coach at
Bradford High School, said,
"If you play golf with Terry,
you'll see parts of Bradford
County you never knew
existed."
Vaughan must have felt like
the only bad golfer in the
room, as well as the only FSU
fan. His love of the Seminoles
was fair game, with people like
Canova offering up jokes like
this: "What do you get when
you cross a pig with a
Seminole? Nothing, because
there, are some things even a
pig won't do."
Canova also, had fun at
Vaughan's expense when she
recalled a time when he played
in a community volleyball
league. She said she and others
would try to guess what
Vaughan would wear to the
gym, then added that it wasn't
that hard to do. His entire
ensemble-shorts, shirt, socks,
shoes, headband and
wristbands-displayed his
FSU pride.
"Our only question was,
what kind of underwear is
Terry wearing," Canova said.
"On second thought, we even
knew his jockstrap was signed


by Bobby Bowden."
Speaking of things signed by
Bobby Bowden, Vaughan has
a photo of himself and the
legendary coach that is signed
by Bowden hanging in his
office. In fact, he has a lot of
FSU items in his office, much
to the chagrin of Amanda
Seyfang, a University of
Florida graduate who is the
deputy supervisor of elections.
She said she had an idea to
raise even more funds for the
library project-auctioning off
Vaughan's FSU memorabilia.
That included the
aforementioned photo.
"I can understand someone
wanting a picture of Bobby
Bowden," said Carol Milner,
the chief deputy supervisor of
elections, "but why would they
want a picture of Terry and
Bobby Bowden?"
Seyfang had the remedy for
that as she produced a pair of
scissors and proceeded to cut
Vaughan out of the picture
(surely it was a copy of the
original photograph; Vaughan
did not seem to be too
alarmed).
There were several jokes
that were political in nature
because of Vaughan's job.
Denmark cracked that he heard
Al Gore was going to be in the
.area at the time of the roast
and offered him. an, invitation
to be one of the roasters. Gore
agreed, Denmark said, "but
when he found out Terry was a
supervisor of elections, he said
it would be a cold day in hell
before he'd come."
"You know, with the
situation with global warming,
that's probably going to be a
long time," Denmark said.
Other roasters hinted at the
fact that maybe supervisors of
elections don't really have a
lot to do. Hint? OK, they just'
came right out and said it.
Wilson said his wife, Ann,
asked him how he would be
able to say anything negative
about someone who's always

Custom bikes put local


attorney on road of fun ...


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Motorcycles he owns have
appeared on television shows
and in magazines, and have
done well at shows.
That's nice, but it is not the
reason Terry Brown is
interested in custom-made
motorcycles.
"It's just a hobby," he said.
"It's no big deal."
That hobby for Brown, a
Starke attorney, began four
years ago. Just as there is a
lengthy process to building a
bike (see related story on Jason
Smith), Brown, too, went
through a process of finding
the right people to build his
bikes.
"Chopper mania" had kicked
in, Brown said, and he wanted
to have his own chopper built.
He said he first went to a man
who was just breaking into the
business. Brown described the
man's business as "fly-by-
night," and the venture did not
last.
"Ultimately, I had to cancel
the order and eventually had to
sue him to get my money
back," Brown said.
Then it was from one
extreme to another, Brown
said. He went to a company
that had garnered much
recognition for building bikes.
The only problem was Brown
had little input in how the bike
would be built. What he got
was a bike that didn't fit him
very well, he said.
: Brown finally did get a
chopper to his liking when he
discovered Coast 2 Coast in
Orlando.
"Finally, I found these guys
down there in Orlando who


Terry Brown sits upon
his Harley Davidson. He
also owns three custom
motorcycles.

would do it the way I wanted it
done and with what I needed,"
he said. "I've learned from the
experience."
What was important in his
relationship with Coast 2 Coast
was the fact Brown was
allowed -to describe how he
wanted the bike to look.
"They made it happen," he
said.
Some of those bikes the
company built for Brown
wound up receiving attention.
The first bike the company


built for Brown placed first
overall at a custom motorcycle
show in Louisville, Ky., as
well as being featured on an
ESPN show.
"I just sold that one a couple
of months ago," Brown said.
"It was time to move on, but L
still miss it."
The custom motorcycle
Brown said he likes the most is
one he still owns. That bike,
which has appeared on the
Speed Channel's V-Twin
show, is unique because it has
a Weber carburetor from a
Porsche 911.
"I actually found an old
carburetor on E-bay," Brown
said. "I liked it, so we built a
motorcycle to go around the
carburetor."
That idea of Brown's
worked out well, but not every
idea pans out. He said some
ideas a person may form in his
Or hher head don't lok good
when they actually appear on a
bike, for example, but one of
the main factors affecting what
works or doesn't work is
practicality. As Brown put it,
he does not want a bike that
exists for the sole purpose of
being trailered from one sho"
to another.
"It's got to be something
you can ride on a daily basis,"
he said.
Brown may not have time to
ride every day, but he does try
to ride every week, he said. It's
a way of escaping life's
stresses.
.*.iAr me,. it gives me an
attitude adjustment where I can
just forget about the problems
and pressures of work and the
job and all that type of stuff,"
See BROWN, p. 11C


Jason Smith of Knuckle Draggers Motorcycles and Accessories of Starke works on
a bobber motorcycle for customer Terry Brown.



Passion for motorcycles


is time-consuming affair


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A couple of weeks ago,
Jason Smith was in the midst
of building a motorcycle for
Terry Brown whose plans are
to show it off in this
weekend's Starke Bike
Festival. At that time, Smith
said he did not expect the gas
tank for the bike to arrive until
just before the event.
He admitted that would be
cutting it close, but it was
nothing he didn't expect.
Building motorcycles takes
time.
"It's about a six-month
process," Smith said. "It's not
just something you can do
overnight. If you want to do it
overnight, you just buy a kit
bike and assemble it out of a
box."
Smith has been building
bikes for approximately three
years, and for the last.year has
done so at Knuckle Draggers
Motorcycles and Accessories,
the Starke business he co-owns
with two other people. His
passion for motorcycles,
however, goes back even
further.
"I've just always enjoyed
working on them and building
them," Smith said. "I've
actually worked on them my


whole life."
Working on motorcycles is
one thing. Building them from
the frame up is another. There
are several challenges. For
example, if something does not
fit that a particular customer
wants on his or her bike, well,
then Smith has to fabricate
something that will make it fit,
he said.
Sometimes an idea, once it
becomes a reality, does not
look as it was envisioned, so
that may entail more changes.
"All the way until the end,
you're going to be changing
parts," Smith said.
The real challenge lies in
building a bike that is unique,
yet still functions as a
motorcycle.


"There isn't any sense in
building a bike you can't ride,"
Smith said. "The whole.
enjoyment of it, once you get it
built, is to actually get out
there and ride it."
Take the bike he was
working on for Brown-a
bobber (a bike in which all
. non-essential parts are.
removed). This motorcycle has
a soft-tail-as opposed to the
usual rigid-frame, miniature
shocks instead of coil springs
and a larger engine. Smith said
a bobber typically has an 80-
cubic-inch engine, but the one
he installed in Brown's bike is
131 cubic inches.
"It's just a huge motor to be

TASKSESS



MIKE T O LD E REASSESS?


We all know that homes in
many markets across the coun-
try experienced substantial
gains in appreciation over the
last few years of heated real
estate activity. While sale
prices are currently leveling
out, you,may have experienced
"sticker shock" if you recently
got a property tax assessment :
that shot way up.
As a matter of fact, property
tax collections across the nation
were up 35% from 2002 to
2006 (U.S. Census Bureau).
That's twice the growth of per-
sonal income, spurring some 15
states to consider tax-cut pro-.
posals.
If you don't want to wait for
new legislation, you can simply
"act locally," and challenge
your tax bill. It's not a hopeless
case, because the American


Homeowners Association
(AHA) estimates that 60% of
homes are in fact assessed too
high.
Don't march down to the
Assessor's office until you've
checked your property data
card for errors. Are the number
of bedrooms and baths correct?
; Finished or unfinished base-
ment? Lot size? Assessments
are often based on replacement
cost or what your home would
sell for, so check with your
insurance policy and real estate
transaction records to deter-
mine if those figures are in line
with what your tax. bill states.
Not enough homeowners
bother to make a challenge, but
70% of those who document
and report errors manage to
lower their tax bill (AHA). It's
well worth a look.

JROTC cadets enjoy camaraderie, activities of camp


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Camp Shands at the Baden
Powell Scout Reservation
between Melrose and
Hawthorne is not a military
base, yet the JROTC cadets
from Bradford High School
and other schools in the state
pretty much did the same
things they would've done if
their annual summer camp had
been held at Camp Blanding as
it has in the past.
Cadets did not sleep in-
military barracks, but that was
one of the few experiences
they missed out on at the
Junior Cadet Leadership
Challenge camp. Their days
were still filled with similar
activities, such as rappelling
off of a tower, learning water
skills and safety, taking math
and science classes and
learning land navigation skills.
More importantly, cadets
.still learned-what David King,
the.senior Army instructor at
Bradford High School,
considers the most important
aspects of camp.
"The whole thing is about
leadership and teamwork,"
King said. "Our key thing is
working with other people
because, wherever they go in
life, they're going to be
,working with other people."
Many activities at the camp
.force cadets to work together
to reach the end goal
successfully. Bradford cadet
Adam Farlow, for example,
had to tackle the "giant's
ladder" on June 7. Two cadets
claimed the ladder at the same
time, with each assisting the
other in reaching the top.
"You have to learn to work
together and do a bunch of
things together," Bradford
cadet Britney Przekop said.
"It's actually pretty awesome."
Farlow's partner during the
giant's ladder exercise was not
from Bradford County. In fact,
cadets from the same school
are split up among the four
companies, forcing them to
interact with cadets from other
cities and counties.
Harry Good, senior Army
instructor at West Port High
School in Ocala who served as
the camp commander, said
cadets have reservations about
the camp and being among
strangers.
However, it did not appear

Cline said. "You don't want to
go home after you meet them.
Your bunk buddy becomes
your best friend."
Cadet Justin Cantu
expressed his surprise at how
easily new relationships
formed.
"I didn't think it was going
to be easy to make this many
new friends," he said. "I've
made about 49 new friends-
my whole company."
Farlow said he not only
made new friends, but meeting
different cadets has been a
learning experience. One of
the things that has come out of
that, he said, was learning new
marching cadences.
"It's been nice meeting
people and seeing how they do
things differently from our
(JROTC) program," Farlow
said.
In fact, Farlow said the
camp "greatly exceeded" his
expectations, a sentiment
shared by fellow BHS cadet
Clay Koehler.
"It's a lot better than I
expected," Koehler said. "I
expected to come out here,
have fun and do some
leadership stuff, but they've
really gone beyond my
expectations."
Przekop simply summed up
her feelings by saying, "It has
been awesome.
Przekop, Khoeler and
Farlow were all looking
forward to tackling the rappell
tower, with Przekop excitedly
describing the act of
descending with sounds that
cannot be reproduced as
words.

Scorpio's offers charm, relaxation in downtown Starke


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Enter Scorpio's and step
back in time to a day spa full
of southern charm and a most
relaxing atmosphere.
The 2,700 square-foot
structure on West Call Street
was originally built in 1912 as
a home for Clara Mae
McKnight. It passed through a
few owners until it was
purchased by its current
owner, Tim Faulkner who
opened it up to the public in
January of this year as
Scorpio's Day Spa.
Faulkner said that he was
able to look beyond the yard,
which took two weeks and a
demolition crew to clean up,


and he just fell in love with the
house.
Wanting to preserve the
home as a historic building,
Faulkner is unable to open up
the second floor right now.
"In order to be listed as a
historical building, it must be
preserved in its original state,
meaning the original staircase.
It is not up to current building
codes, so I am unable to use
the area right now," he said.
Faulkner said there is
nothing structurally wrong
with the stairway, but building
codes do change over the
years. Once the structure is
registered, he will not be
forced to replace the stairway
and can preserve its history.
The front yard is beautifully
manicured and the entrance to


Miriam Faulkner has a final coat painted on her nails

Scorpio's contains an array of
colorful flowers, plants and
decorations landscaped by
Faulkner himself.
The house had been sitting
for three years and the yard
was in really bad shape. The
backyard, which has a fish
pond, is still being worked on.
"It's one of my ongoing
projects," he said.
The biggest project he
undertook after purchasing the
home was repainting the entire
house. He said that even with
help, it took three months to
paint it. Faulkner also
decorated the inside using a
little bit of elegance and a little
bit of antiques. It still has its
original wood floors, some of
which were previously covered
up with carpeting.
The electrical, central
heating and air, and plumbing
were updated by a previous
owner, leaving Faulkner to
concentrate on beautifying the
interior, giving it a cozy, at-
home feeling, something you
won't usually find in a hair and
nail salon.
Born and raised in Bradford
County, Faulkner attended
Bradford High School.
Following high school, he
joined the army, then returned
to Starke and attended the
cosmetology program at the
career center.
He then worked for Calvin
Kirkland at Illusions Salon for
four years before Kirkland
relocated to Macclenny. By
that time, Faulkner had built a

When his parents became ill,

was "Tim's," but he wanted
something a bit more striking.
He opted for using the name of
his zodiac sign, Scorpio.
Through the years, he has
attended hair design shows in
New York, Miami and Las
Vegas.
"In 1997, I was fortunate
enough to be given the
opportunity to work a show
with Gianni Versace and even
paid the $2,500 fee," Faulkner
said. Unfortunately, Versace
was murdered before the show
could ever take place.
Some of his future plans for
the spa include opening the
upstairs as a bridal and
bridesmaid rental suite, with
the salon ser ices available to
them downstairs. He also
believes the comfipleted yard
would make a beautiful place
for a wedding ceremony.
Another plan of Faulkner's is
to let people know they are
welcomed to come on by and
relax by serving iced tea on the
shaded front porch.
Coming soon to Scorpio's
will be microdermabrasion, a
powerful. peel for skin
reju ehation.
Faulkner has been in the'

over 20 years.
He and Maryann Hutchins

other chemical services start at

In a letter given to him just
prior to his scheduled surgery,
she wrote, "It is hard to
communicate with your
hearing the way it is, so I write
these thoughts for you to read.
"You nurtured and cared for
nature as carefully as you did
your own family. You lovingly
introduced, nurtured and
cultivated all my love for
plants and animals."
"Each seed I now plant, each
garden I now grow and each
bounty I receive, I thank you.
We were so lucky to have had
the multitude of animals that
you provided for us to grow up

Two Starke Police officers
were promoted June 11 to
patrol shift supervisors.
Sgt. Stephen Murphy grew
up in Starke and graduated from
Bradford High School in 1993.
He earned his BA in criminal
justice from St. Leo University
and started with SPD in 2000.
"Murphy has been a valuable
asset to the community. as a
patrol officer, a school resource
officer and through his
community relations with the
citizens of Starke," said Chief
Gordon Smith.

have paid a toll on your body,
but you should know that it
was not in vain. You have not
weakened in my eyes; you are
still my hero. I was always
proud to say, 'This is my dad'
and I still am."
The letter brought tears to
Altman's eyes and he did pull
through the surgery.
Joyce said her husband still
loves to be outdoors and rides
his tractor in order to water his
vegetables. Just the other day,
Ricky Altman saw his father
sitting in a chair in the
backyard as he hoed the
garden. You can't keep a good
man down.
The day after Father's Day,
he will return to the doctor to
activate the implanted device
to restore his hearing. He will
likely be surrounded by his
four children, which include
Vanessya, Kay Lowe and
Ricky Altman of Starke, and
Sheila Altman.
"He can't wait. He's always
been a talker and it's been hard
for him not to be able to carry
on a normal conversation,"
Joyce said.

Jason Smith mounts the headlight on the bobber
motorcycle.

Continued from p. 2C
setting down into a bobber
frame," Smith said, adding,
"We don't have much room to
play with."
The paint job features
pinstripes and gold leaf.
"That's going to be a
wicked-looking bike," Smith
said.
One might imagine that
constantly changing parts and
ideas throughout the process of
building a motorcycle would
be frustrating. It is, at times,
Smith said.
"There are plenty of times
where you get to a point where
stuff just isn't fitting the way
it's supposed to fit," he said.
"You've just got to take 20-30
minutes to walk away from it
and come back and start over."
Once the bike is built and
everyone involved agrees it
has turned out as desired, then
it is disassembled. That is
because the bike is built at first
with nothing but plain,
unpainted metal-a mock-up.
The mock-up gets torn apart
and pieces are sent away for
painting, powder coating, etc.
"You're at their mercy,
waiting on them to get
everything back to you," Smith
said.
Then .the,.bike.,has tQ ,,.b
reassembled and wired.
Smith said there is a
tremendous amount of
satisfaction in seeing the
finished product, yet there is
something else that is even
more satisfying.
"Just hearing it fire up at the
end," he said. "That's where
you get the final satisfaction-
when you hear that motorcycle
crank up in the end."
Another satisfying aspect of
building a bike is hearing what
others say about it. Smith will
get that chance when he goes
to Starke's Bike Fest, an event
he is glad to see in his home
town. It gives him a chance to


stay at home, yet still have the
chance to look at other
people's motorcycles and get
some ideas for bikes he will
build in the future.
Smith said he enjoyed
seeing and meeting riders and
people from different cities
and counties during the
inaugural Starke Bike Festival.
That event had a good turnout,
which he is hoping this year'.s
event will duplicate.
Overall, Smith thinks the
event is a positive one for the
community. It helps the
economy and brings a lot of
people to Starke who have
never been to or heard of the
city before, he said.
The fact there is such an
event, coupled with the
opening of Knuckle Draggers,
suggests there is a bike culture
that exists in Starke. It has
always been here, Smith said,
but recently it has grown by
"leaps and bounds." He said
you would see motorcycles
here and there out on the road
a couple of years ago, but now
you can stand by U.S. 301 and
see 200 to 300 bikes ride by in
a day.
Smith estimates the number
of riders has tripled in the last
couple of years.
"You've got people coming
in (to Knuckle Draggers) who
are 49 or 50 years old and who
haven't ridden a bike in 25
, years," ,, he said. /'All of a
sudden, they're buying a new
bike. They're getting back into
the riding scene.
"It's not any certain age
limit. From teenagers to
grandparents, everybody's
riding."
And anybody who would
like to ride a motorcycle that is
unique, Smith will listen to
their ideas and try to build the
bike they want. It's a part of
that challenge that lies in
bringing a bike to life starting
with a bare frame.
"We're going to give it a
shot and see if we can do it,"
Smith said. "There's no way to
find out unless you get out
there and do it."

BROWN
Continued from p. 2C

Brown said.
Brown's interest in
motorcycles developed as a
teenager. He recalled wanting
a motorcycle for Christmas
one year. He did not get one,
but his father, sensing his
disappointment, bought him a
used motorcycle a few days
later.
"I got a belated Christmas.
present," Brown said. "I was
tooling around Starke on my
little Honda 65 for a couple of
years."
Motorcycles dropped out of
Brown's life after college, but
his resumed in 1998. He knew
several people who had Harley
Davidsons, which eventually
led to him buying one-a 98"
anniversary edition of a
Heritage.
"I wish I still had that bike,"
Brown said, "but I traded it in
for something else. It was
fun."
Every couple of years,
Brown would get another
model that had newer features.
Then he decided he wanted a
custom-made chopper, though
he still owns a Harley.
Currently, besides a Harley,
Brown owns two custom
choppers after selling two
others this year. He is also
adding a bobber, which is
being built by Jason Smith at
Knuckle Draggers in Starke, to
his collection.
Brown said the bobber was a
type of motorcycle popular in
the 1960s "when the
motorcycle craze kind of
began." Those motorcycles

Festival. Knuckle Draggers of Starke completed the bike after work was begun on it
by another company.


had all of their unnecessary
parts removed, which reduced
their weight and made them
faster.
Like the custom chopper
- Bro\ n owns with the Porsche
carburetor, the bobber he is
hat ing built has a unique twist
to it...
"'It's a classic bobber,"
Brown said, "but it's sort of a
sleeper in that we put in an
oversized racing motor which
will give twice the
performance of what one
would normally find in a
bobber. That's a little
surprise."
What won't be a surprise is
Brown's reaction to receiving
the finished bike. He said he
always feels like a "proud
daddy" for a couple of days
after a bike is finished.
You could say Brown has a


passion for motorcycles, but he
laughed -as he said his wife
would describe it another way.
"I think my wife calls it an
addiction," he said.'
Passion or addiction, Brown
has an interest in the upcoming
Starke Bike Festival, which
will be hosted at the Bradford
County Fairgrounds this
weekend, June. 15-16. Brown
attended the inaugural event
last year and was impressed.
"I thought it was fantastic
'' for a first-time event," he said.
"It ran well. I think everybody
had a great time."
If.the event continues on an
annual basis, it could really
provide a huge economic
impact, Brown said. He
pointed to Leesburg as an
example. That city hosts a bike
festival which was probably.
similar in size to Starke's


festival when it began. It has
since grown, with Brown
estimating the Leesburg
festival drew approximately
300,000 people this past year.
"I think (the Bike Festival)
is great for the city of Starke,"
he said.

CAMP
Continued from p. 5C

Farlow rappelled on June 7.
Up until then, he said the part
of the camp he enjoyed most
was survival training, a part of
the outdoor skills session.
"It's going great," Farlow
said. "It's just really, really
hot."
All the cadets got the chance
to cool off at some point
during the week during the
aquatics session of the camp.
Przekop was participating in
that session on the morning of
June 7, saying that up to that
point, it was the most fun
activity she had taken part in.
Cantu also enjoyed that part
of the camp.
"I learned how to swim,
finally," he said. "It took me
two hours, but I did it."'
The aquatics instructors
make sure all the cadets learn
how to swim before they are
able to participate in any water
activities. That helped Cline,
who admitted she was not as
strong of a swimmer as she
thought she was.
"They teach you how to
swim better, then they'll retest
you," Cline said. "If you're a
better swimmer, you get to go
out in a canoe and all this other
fun stuff."
That's what Cline said she
was looking forward to the
most-going out on the lake in
a canoe.
Besides looking forward to
that canoe ride, Cline had the
responsibility of being her
company's safety officer. As
such, she wore a red cap,
carried a first-aid kit and heard
many complaints of blisters
and insect bites. She summed
up her duties as safety officer
as having to distribute "lots of
Band-Aids."
It was also her duty. to
remind the cadets in her
company to drink water.
Hydration was stressed
throughout the camp. Even
during one of the math/science
classes, in which the cadets sat
indoors, they were told by the
instructor to drink from their
canteen whenever they were
thirsty.
It's a way of dealing with
the Florida heat and, for some
of the cadets, dealing with it in
unfamiliar conditions.
"A lot of these kids, it's their
first time in the woods," Good
said.. "My kids are almost all
city kids. Some of them have
never been in a lake before."
West Port and Bradford high
schools were two of 13 schools
represented at the camp, which
consisted of approximately
200 cadets. The other schools
participating were Bell, Dixie
County (Cross City),
Englewood (Jacksonville),
Paxon (Jacksonville), Wolfson
(Jacksonville), Raines _
(Jacksonville), Hudson, Lake
Weir (Ocala), Lecanto,
Williston and Taylor County
(Perry).
Activities during the camp
consisted of aquatic skills, land
navigation and outdoors skills,
ropes training (rappell tower,
zip line, giant's ladder, etc.),
archery, drug demand classes,
which are put on by the
National Guard, and math and
science classes.
"A lot of kids don't have the
opportunity to get out and do
things like this," King said.
"To do everything that they do
here, it would cost their

Farlow said.
The adults-several of
whom are volunteers-who
work at the camp are probably
glad they have a year to
recuperate. As King said, it's a
"high-packed" week that
leaves both adults and cadets
tired, but he left no doubt that
the work was worth it.
"It's a long week for us,"
King said, "but it makes you
feel so good when kids are
having a good time. That's
what it's all about-having a
good time, staying busy and
learning something."

This, was the first summer

desire to return next year, and
Farlow plans to spread the
word.
