BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Police are interviewing anyone
believed to have knowledge of
the circumstances, surrounding the
murder of a man in Starke on Tuesday
evening.
The victim was identified as 55-
year-old Edward Otis Smith, a long-
time resident of Starke.
According to Starke Police Lt. Barry
Warren, the department responded to
a reported shooting at 813 Ida St. at
approximately 4:58 p.m. on Tuesday,
July 31. Inside the residence, officers
and emergency medical personnel
found Smith lying on the living room
-floor- with a puncture wound to the
left side of his chest.
Following immediate treatment
at the scene, Smith was transported
to Shands Starke where he was
pronounced dead at 5:38 p.m.
The exact cause of Smith's injury
puzzled authorities. Even the medical
examiner was unable to determine
what killed Smith prior to autopsy.

Fires damage two homes in Starke


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
telegraph Eduor

No ,one was injured, but two
structure fires damaged homes in the
city of Starke over the past week.
On Friday morning, July 27,
Starke firefighters and county EMTs
responded to a fire at 1202 Larry
Street, off of Old Lawtey Road. The
fire in the home of Gendolyn E


Hahkerson was rapidly extinguished
alter damaging furniture. clothing and
other items in the room of origin.
Starke Fire Rescue's Gary Wise
believes the cause of the fire was an
overloaded electrical circuit. There
was no structural damage to the
home, and fire damage was contained
.,to a single room,-but smoke damage
permeated the home, he said.
Hankerson's son was attempting


to douse, the flames when the
fire department amircdon6h scene,
according to Wise.
On Mondaymorning, a stove fire
threatened a mobile home on the
800 block of Ash Street but was
put out by residents by the time
the department arrived. Emergency
personnel removed the stove from
the home and used fans to disperse
the smoke.


According to the police department,
both a knife and a shell casing were
found at the crime scene.
Results of that autopsy were not
available as of press time.
Starke Police Chief Gordon Smith
said a person of interest is in custody,
arrested early Wednesday morning
on drug charges after being located
by authorities in a local crack house.
The individual told investigators
conflicting stories about his
whereabouts at. the time of the
murder and was found with blood on
his body, Chief Smith said. Murder
charges may depend on the results of
a DNA analysis, although many others
are still being questioned and the
investigation has not been narrowed
to focus on a single individual.
The police department is working
with the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement on the murder
investigation.
Anyone with information on this
crime should contact the Starke Police
Department at (904) 964-5400.


Worker OK after


alligator attack


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


Alligator Creek lived up to its
name this past Tuesday when Nelson
Armas, a 19-year-old maintenance
worker for the Starke Recreation
Department, said he was bitten by an
alligator while mowing near the creek
behind the Ed%%ards Ro.id Cimpi\.
"It just jumped out of nowhere and
got a hold of me," Armas said.
Armas, fortunately, only had a few,
small scratches on his right leg to
show for the encounter, which left
him with a shredded boot and pants
leg.
"I'm really fortunate," he said.
"Evidently, I have a guardian angel
looking out for me."


Armas said he estimated the
alligator to be 5 feet in length. Hord
said mature females are typically at
least 6 feet in length, though Armas"
estimation was close enough to at
least think this animal could've been
a female protecting her nest.
Still,theincidentmustbe thoroughly
investigated before an\ conclusions
are made. Once the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conser% ation Commission's
alligator management receives a call
to its nuisance alligator hotline, the
agency's law enforcement division is
notified. A wildlife officer responds,
interviewing the person involved
and investigating the scene of the
incident..

Fire consolidation:
Will commissioners -
play ball?

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Aside from several ideas staff
would like to present to the
city and county commissions
regarding a consolidated fire
service, County Manager Jim
Crawford -aid the concept is
still in its infancy.
In spite of several staff-level'
meetings that commissioners
were informed of, there's not
much happening, according to
Crawford.
Crawford said a consolidated
fire service is best for the
citizens of Bradford County,
including those in the city of
Starke. in terms of money saved
and quality of service.
" 'That's my personal opinion,
and I may not be able to get
people to come on line with
that," Crawford said.._
That doesn't mean he won't
iy. Crawford said he would
present several alternative
scenarios related to how
consolidation could happen
and what a countywide fire
department would look like.
One of those involves
,strategically locating -fult-
.time firefighting personnel in
stations at the north and south
ends of the city of Starke. It's
just a hypothesis, Crawford
,said, but he does believe that
65 percent of the county's
population could be served well
by those stations and the public


would benefit from reduced
insurance rates.
Another alternative could
be reducing the hours of
professional fire departments
to 12 or fewer hours a day. The
career firefighters would be on
call during the day when most
-of the county's volunteers are
at their day jobbs'ATter-hours,-
volunteers would be the first
responders.
Folding emergency medical
services into a consolidated fire
department also makes sense
but may happen farther down
the road, Crawford said. Some
of Starke's firefighters are dual
certified as EMTs, he said, and
already work part time for the
county.
Right now, Crawford said,
such ideas are being compiled
in order to give commissioners
something to think about. /
Ofcourse, consolidation
is predicated on the
willingness of both boards.
As County Commissioner
Jghn Cooper said in
a recent meeting, if
Starke isn't interested
in a consolidated fire
department, then there's
nothing to talk about.
Starke Mayor Carolyn
. Spooner said she's not
interested in a scenario in
which the city would give-
up -con-trol-over its fire
department.
"When you say consolidation,
most people think the county
will be the controlling force
for the fire department. I'm
not interested in that," she

Police consolidation:
Is now the perfect
time?

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

If consolidation is the
watchword of the moment, then
it's not surprising the concept of
consolidating law enforcement
services has also arisen.
With Sheriff Bob Milner
seeking a legislative seat in
Tallahassee and Starke Police
Chief Gordon Smith planning
to take his place in the sheriff's
office, Buster Rahn, in an
editorial written for this week's
edition,, concludes that
now is the opportune time
to seek consolidation of
the two-agencies.
No one, Rahn points
out, will have to be ousted
from an elected position
in order to accomplish the
union.
As with fire department
consolidation, neither
commission has formally
addressed the issue. but
it's one that both the
police chief and sheriff
were willing to briefly
discuss.
As the county grows and
there is a mounting desire
to eliminate duplication of
all services, Smith said law
enforcement consolidation
is-something that needs to be
seriously looked at.
Of course, he says that as the
most likely person to be heading
the consolidated agency. But


even if things don't "work out
right," he said, meaning if he
does not become the county's
next sheriff, consolidation is
still something he believes in.
"Some things we do just
because their right," Smith
said.
Milner also believes it's
worth .talking about, pointing
to Gilchrist, Baker. Union
and other counties that do
not have separate police
departments operating inside
their municipalities.
But Smith said, consideration
should involve more than the
just the input of a few elected
officials: the issue needs input
from citizens countywide, he
said.
According to a 2003 report
on consolidating police services
prepared by the International
Association of Chiefs of
Police, consolidation can be
an appealing idea to smaller
agencies. In fact, the report
states that the most common
form of consolidation is
between smaller county and
city police agencies (those
with populations of fewer than
50.000 residents).
Benefits can include a higher
volume of police, services.
lower response times, reduced
overtime and duplication of
services, and lower operating
costs. More efficient and
coordinated use of police
power can increase the quality
of policing, according to the
report.
Opponents of consolidation
often fear the loss of

Lawtey school won't be finished in time


Higher grades
relocated to Family
Service Center

BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer

On Tuesday, July 24, Bradford
County School Superintendent
Harry Hatcher called an
emergency meeting with board
members to discuss their options
for Lawtey Community School
students.
With the new school year
now just two weeks away, it has
become increasingly apparent
that the new school building will
not be ready for students on
Aug. 20.
Hatcher and Maintenance
Supervisor J.E. Mott -spoke
with Suwannee Environmental
Construction President Waymon
Pardue, who offhandedly
remarked, "If I were you, I'd
have a backup plan."
Pardue told them the light
fixtures for the first 10 classrooms
in Phase I were not expected to
be shipped until Aug. 13 and the
carpeting was now scheduled to
be installed on Aug. 15.
Teachers are due to return to-
their classrooms on Aug. 14.
Pardue was in-attendance at
a prior June 20 workshop with
school board members when
it was first pointed out the
classroom replacement project
was already 35 days behind. ,
At that same meeting, Pardue
stated that he expected the first
set of 10 classrooms in Phase I
to be ready for the teachers to set
up no later than Aug. 9 and that
Phase II (the second set of 10
--classrooms) would be completed-
by July 31.
As of press time, only five
of the classrooms from Phase II
were in place and the Phase I set
of classrooms are in no way near
ready to be occupied.
At last week's emergency
meeting, Hatcher said that quite
frankly, they need to implement a
plan for the teachers and students,
and it requires the board act
immediately.
Board Member Randy Jones
was more than a little upset when
he said, "I'm tired of us' getting
shafted every time we do school
construction in Bradford County.
My feelings are not focused on'
the; monep.y ,jsus hbi.t, instead
on what this, kind of business
practice is doing to:, our school-
system as a whole."
Lawtey Community School
Principal David Tew said it
would not be feasible to wait
around until the Aug. 15 to see
if the carpet is installed and light
fixtures are in place because
teachers need to be able to begin
setting up their classrooms.
Tew and a handful of Lawtey
teachers were at the emergency
meeting, and all agreed they were
willing to do whatever necessary
to get everything up and.running
for the first day of school.
Several ideas for temporarily
placing the teachers and students
left without classrooms included
bringing portable classrooms
back to the school, moving the-
students to Bradford Middle
School, cramming the entire
student body in the one remaining
Lawtey school building, setting
up partitioned classrooms at the
fairgrounds, moving the students
to the district office location and
even the city hall building if
necessary.
Board Member Vivian
Chappell said, "We're screwed
no matter how you look at it.
"I think it best we do everything
-. we can to keep all of the students--
at their school locatio6ffand not
spread them around everywhere.
This just isn't right."
Mott said the students in
grades K-5 can easily remain in
the existing school building until
construction is complete.
For the 110 displaced sixth-
seventh- and eighth-grade
students displaced, they would
need at least six portables
returned to Lawtey.
"Each portable costs $325 a
month, which really isn't too
bad, however, keep in mind each
portable not only needs to be set
up, but also taken down when
we no longer need them," Mott
said.
To that, the district would
be iookipg, a.t a cost of around
$40,000 just to use portable
classrooms for as little as a
few weeks, or possibly a few
months. In addition,.there would
not be enough time to make
the portables restroom equipped,


nor would they have telephone
service.
Another suggestion was made
that they set the first day of
school for Lawtey students ahead
one week to Aug. 27, but even
that date couldn't be guaranteed.
"What if things aren't ready by
that date and the contractor turns
around and says he needs two or
three more weeks? Judging by
their track record, we can't count
on any completion dates they
give us," Jones said.


That -would also likely cause
issues with parents as well as
teachers who have already had
to deal with losing two weeks
pay this summer because of
legislative changes to school
starting dates in Florida.
Board Member David Smith
suggested the middle school
grades to be temporarily housed
in the Family Service Center,
and, if necessary, they could also
use the space now available at the
career center where FloridaWorks
used to be located.
"The basic distance between
the Family Service Center
building and the old FloridaWorks
location is not much different
than walking from one end of
the Lawtey Community School
campus to the other," Smith
said.
It was also suggested that pre-
K could possibly be postponed to
a later start date, freeing up more
classroom space at Lawtey.
The technology lab and
resource rooms could temporarily
be used for classrooms, but that
would take enrichments away
from the entire school grades K-
8, something administrators and
school board members did not
want to do.
Cindy DeValerio of the
Rainbow Center was quickly
reached and asked to 'offer her
input.
"I believe that delaying the pre-
K start time would actually pose
problems for parents who work
and are depending on classes
starting on time," she said.
Some of the teachers
in attendance offered the
suggestion of moving the middle
grade students to the Bradford
Fairgrounds, using room dividers-
for the teachers to conduct
classes.
"A lot of the teachers have
talked about teaming up to
teach," said teacher Charlotte
Durrance.
Another suggestion was
to temporarily mix Lawtey's
middle school students with
Bradford Middle School, again
with teachers teaming up for
instruction.
In the end, Smith's suggestion
of moving grades six, seven
and eight to the Family Service
Center was the most logical
choice for the board.
"The building is really nice
and extremely clean with plenty
of classroom space." Smith said.
In addition, the building,
provides office space for'Tew
or Assistant Principal Jason
Jennings,. who will likely
alternate back and forth between
the school and the center.
There will be ample room for
five teachers and a technology
lab, immediate telephone service
and on-site restrooms. Students


can walk across the street to.
BMS and have their own lunch
time, without being integrated-
with BMS students and can use
the school grounds for outdoor
physical education.
What's more is that the new
BMS start time of 8:45 a.m.
opens everything up at the middle
school facility to LCS students
who regularly begin their school
day at 7:40 a.m.
"That idea puts us in the best
position to get things set up
right now and get the teacher
classroom spaces available,"
Mott said.
The only remaining concern
was busing the students to the
Family Service Center and how
this would impact classroom
times.
Louette Smith of the
transportation department
was placed on speaker phone
as Hatcher asked her what
challenges she would face with
the district moving LCS sixth-,
seventh- and eighth-graders to
the Family Service Center.
"I don't see a problem with it
at all," she said, "and I think we
can get it done with two shuttle
buses."
As the first bell rings at LCS,
the'middle school students will
leave the campus on shuttle buses
headed for the Family Service
Center. In the--afternoons, the
shuttle buses will need to pick
the students up between 1:30 and
1:45 to return them to the LCS
campus to either transfer to their
regular bus home or to be picked
up by parents at 2:10 p.m., the
end of the school day.
Tew said that all in all, the
students may lose roughly 30
minutes of instructional time
each day which is what they
actually were going to gain this
school year.
All board members agreed-
students and teachers should be
able to enjoy the comforts of
the Family Service Center until
the LCS project is 100 percent
complete and ready for them to-
return to their new classrooms.
Even if the Phase I classrooms
are completed at the end of
August, they said they will
not shuffle the middle school
students into those classrooms
which are actually intended for
the younger grade students. The
Phase II classrooms, in which
all are not even on slabs yet, are
intended for the. middle school
students.-. ,
""No %a) should we put
those kids through moving any
more than we have to," Board
Chairman Jesse Moore said. "If
nothing else, they deserve that."
Board members decided that
LCS sixth, seventh 'and eighth
grades will remain at the Family
Service' Center for at least the

collectively to provide those

with that."

and EMS department heads

overseeing the consolidation
effort for the sheriff's office.
He said the networking of
the sheriff's office and police
department is important for
other reasons.
"The ultimate goal is to set
this up so that we're doing
all dispatching for Starke PD,
but Starke PD becomes a
secondary dispatch center as a
backup," Russell said. A call
box, video camera and lock
system controllable from the
county dispatch center will also
be installed at the police station
so someone who shows up after
hours in need of protection after
hours can be let inside.
"If a woman went there and
was being chased or followed
by somebody, the dispatch here
could actually unlock the door
and allow her to go into a foyer
where it's safe," Russell said.
Theoretically, he said, city

quotes are being sought for a
needs study that would be used
to determine the amount of that
assessment.
Crawford frames the
levying of an assessment
as "diversifying" local
government's income. Instead
of relying so much on property
taxes-a revenue source
legislators have seen fit to cut
on behalf of city and county
commissions-Crawford said
services like fire protection can
be funded through a special
assessment.
After levying such an
assessment, taxpayers would
see their property taxes lowered
by an approximately equivalent

office could begin in a matter

to make that move until other
issues like these have been
taken care of. There will be
some inevitable kinks to be
worked out, Smith said.
"The first month is going
to be a trying time. ... We're
trying to work out anything
major, then it will be just
tweaking it when we get there,"
Smith said.
Smith said both commissions
still need to sit down to answer
the budgetary questions of who
will contribute what.
"Even if we can't make the
switch by Oct. 1, we want the
commissioners to agree that's
what's going to happen, even if
it takes until November to get it
done," Smith.said.
A total of four police
department' employees will
be transferred to the county's
dispatch center where they will
continue to answer emergency
calls from inside the city limits

amount, he said.
"We're not trying to pass
a fire assessment to have
more money," said Crawford,
explaining the way in which
alternative revenue sources can
help lower property taxes.
Counties that have diversified
their income with several
assessments, and thus have
low millage rates, were not as
severely impacted by property
tax reform as those counties
that rely on property taxes for
so much of their operating
budgets, he said.
As for now, however, the
subject of fire department
consolidation and how to pay
for it has yet to be addressed by
either commission.


responders. Sheriff Bob
Milner said as long as they
meet the county's employment
requirements, including
background checks, polygraph
analysis, drug tests and a job-
related skills examination, they
will be transferred in.
They are, however, the
newest dispatch employees
the city has. Smith intends to
keep the two more experienced
staff members, who also
perform clerical duties, for his
department.
The lingering question is
whether or not the city will
cover the entire cost of moving
its employees-given that the
sheriff pays higher salaries
than the city-or, alternatively,
how much additional cost the
county commission is willing
to absorb.
. Milner justifies the higher
salaries by pointing to a lower
employee turnaround rate.
He's only had to hire one
communications employee in
two-and-a-half years, he said.
"The rest have a minimum
of three year's, up to 10 year's,
experience, and it shows,"
Milner said.
It takes 5.2 employees to
.man one position in dispatch
24 hours a day, 365 days a
year. Milner isn't asking for all
five, but the county does need
enough money for at least three
employees. The rest of the load
could be covered with existing
employees, he said.

District claims school discipline improved


WWW.BCTELEGRAPH.COM


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer


During the 2005-06 school
year, a task force made up of
members of the community,
administrators and other
school personnel combined
forces to give feedback in
areas of services provided by
the Bradford County School
district that were of upmost
concern.
Input from the community
was very strong regarding
student discipline and how
the student code of conduct
was applied. There was a
community perception that
differing consequences were
given to students and it was
believed that these were given
in an inconsistent manner
favoring different groups of
students.
It was also perceived that
minority children were being
disciplined under a different
standard than other students.
Members commented that
the code of conduct was poorly
.-- itten and ambiguous, seen as
a very negative document that
did not enlist the cooperation of
the community.
Because there seemed to be
a great deal of inconsistencies-
in the way discipline was being
applied, it was decided to
develop a districtwide plan to

not only cause administrators to
apply discipline in a consistent
manner, but also make it easier
for students, parents and the
community to understand.
Furthermore, it was believed
that if students understood
the consequences, they would
be less likely to engage in
inappropriate behavior.
The first step was to view
documents from other districts
around the state and to adopt
a format which could be
modified to meet the needs of
the district.
The committee presented an
offense chart to the school board,
outlining what administrators
should do-and what parents
and students should expect-
following a first offense, second
offense, and so on. The offense,. :
chart applies to all students,_
leaving no room for individuals
to circumvent the steps outlined
in the code of conduct.
A comparison was made
of the number of discipline
referrals made during the 2005-
06. school year to 2006-07
school year. There were 8,857
discipline referrals reported in
the district during 05-06 and
3,644 during 06-07, a decrease
of more than 5,000 discipline
referrals in the district.

Student Education Karl Wendell
feels that the board's approval

of the new code may have
attributed to the sharp decline
in the number of code violations
and school suspensions for the
2006-07 school year.
"The former code of conduct
lacked understandabledirection.
When two school employees
could get together, read the code
and get two different outcomes,
it presented a problem," said
Wendell. "What was needed
was for everyone involved to
get on the same page and work
from the same chart."
The new code of conduct
has put into place a number of
early intervention strategies to
keep students on the right path,
such as guidance counseling,
parent meetings and child study
referrals.
:: Wendell, said other factors
contributing to:: the overall
decrease in discipline
issues include professional
development activities for
teachers and staff conducted
throughout the school year on
topics such as diversity, dealing
with differences, learning styles
and creating a positive learning
environment.

Zoning board recommends denial of city application


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Starke Zoning -Board
went against staff comments
and has recommended the
city commission deny its own
rezoning application.
An application by the Starke
City Commission was made
on behalf of the landowner,
Kingsley Development LLC, to
rezone land fronting S.R. 230
(Call Street) next to Veterans
Memorial Parkfora multifamily
condominium development.
No expert testiimony Was
offered, but residentJuliaGriffin
offered heropinionon the impact
of the potential development
on surrounding properties. She
said a multifamily development
would tax the already failing
sewer system, add to existing
traffic congestion and result
in additional flooding on
neighboring properties.
In addition, she said many of
the surrounding properties are
single-family residences and
she didn't want to see town
homes in her backyard.
No one was present to speak
on behalf of the city or Kingsley
Development.
The property in question
currently has three separate

Bradford, Union officials hold

joint leadership briefing .


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Officials from Bradford and
Union counties gathered
Friday in the Union County
Courthouse for a senior
leadership briefing.
Florida Emergency
Management (EM) Director
Craig Fugate and the National
Weather Service's Steve Letro
presented information about
government's role in
responding to hurricanes and
the 2007 hurricane season
forecast.
Fugate said, "Elected
leadership bears the
responsibility to declare an
emergency and has the
authority to do so."
According to Florida Statute
Chapter 252, the state's
emergency management act,
the governor leads the state's
emergency response team,
declares a state emergency and
prepares for disasters through
exercises and training.
EM is encouraging
governments on a local level to
be more prepared through
SERT, the State Emergency
Response Team.
SERT is a joint effort among
state, local, volunteers and the
private sector to coordinate
and.respond to disasters.
Fugate said it is the
responsibility of the elected
officials at the state and local
levels to be prepared with a
plan and supplies.
But most importantly,
emergency situations require
flexibility.


Florida
Emergency
Management
Director Craig
Fugate
discusses the
State
Emergency
Response Team,
or SERT, with
officials from
Bradford and
Union counties.


He said the state EM had to
build flexibility into its budget
to have ready access to funds
when needed before and after
emergencies.
Flexibility was a key
element in sending Florida
responders, with their own
supplies, to assist when
Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf
Coast in 2005.
Fugate said, "Here are the
rules for emergency response.
One, meet the needs of the
people, and two, take care of
responders."
He said those two elements
are easier met with
preparedness and being on a
common communication
system.
Meeting goals, keeping an


open line of communication
and holding themselves
accountable was the
responsibility of public
officials, he said.

Letro, the meteorologist-in-
charge of the Jacksonville
branch of the National
Weather Service, also spoke
on the 2007 hurricane season
forecast.
With a slide of a caveman
widely known from the Geico
commercials on TV, Letro
said, "Hurricane
forecasting... so easy a
caveman could do it."

On Monday, Frank Sheffield Jr. was driving east in his Chevy pick-up truck on
S.R.16 when he lost steering and braking abilities, according to Heilbronn
Volunteer Springs Fire Department Chief Terry McCarthy. Sheffield pulled to the
side of the road about one mile past C.R. 225 and quickly unloaded his tractor
from the trailer he was hauling, as the truck burst into flames. The fire
department's Engine 41 and Squad 4 responded to the 911 calls at approximately
8:30 p.m. and put out the fire within minutes, said firefighter Ann Williamson.
McCarthy said based on what Sheffield described, the fire appeared to be
electrical in nature.

Opportunity knocks


It has been said that opportunity
knocks only once and that may be
true in the situation confronting the
city of Starke and Bradford County.
Certainly the stars are properly
aligned and the signs of the zodiac
are in position for taxpayers to reduce
the cost of local government by
supporting the consolidation of the
two major law enforcement agencies
in Bradford County- the Starke
Police Department and the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office.
There are a number of issues to be
addressed, but the overriding issue in
serving the public good is reluctance
for change by city officials. If they
can rise above the personal claim of
"having a police department" and
consider only what is best for the city
and county, residents, including those
of us who live inside the city limits,
will be well served.
Several factors have come together
to make this the time to make a sea
change in the way we operate local
government and bring it into the 21st
century. In the next election there
will not be an incumbent sheriff on
the Bradford County ballot since Bob
Milner is seeking a seat in the Florida
House of Representatives. There
will be competition for the office of
sheriff, but consolidating will be less
of an issue without an incumbent in
the race.
In the city, Chief of Police Gordon
Smith will be a candidate for the open
sheriff's post and not an incumbent
for his own position. The law requires
Smith to resign the city position.
prior to running for another elective
position. It's possible the chief of
police position will be abolished
before another city election.
Both of those situations provide a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make
changes without harming or upsetting
incumbent officeholders, a situation
Bradford County taxpayers and voters
have never before experienced.
Without exception, everyone in the
county has felt the increase in cost of
living, even though it hasn't affected


everyone to the same degree. Those
on limited incomes are having to
make judicious decisions concerning
purchases beyond essential items,
and unfortunately, some of our
neighbors may have to reduce the
purchases of items essential to health.
If elected officials can reduce the
tax burden without sacrificing the
excellent quality of law enforcement
we currently enjoy, it behooves them
to do so.
There are two issues of concern to
current employees in both the police
department and the sheriff's office
and that is how to handle retirement
benefits and officer rank. Both Milner
and Smith are confident these issues
can be resolved without harm to any
currently employed personnel.
Can taxpayers see tangible results?
Most emphatically yes! While the city
enjoys excellent response time, there
is no reason to believe the quality of
service will deteriorate. The sheriff's
office is also located in the city of
Starke.
The fundamental issue is the
reduction of tax dollars available
to local government. Counties and
cities have been put on notice that
free spending of former years has
been curtailed and .economies must
be practiced in the spending of public
money, and commissioners are in
the front lines for fitting income to
expenditures. Taxpayers can no longer
afford the luxuries of two independent
law enforcement agencies that
duplicate activities, and the time has
come to put aside old customs and
seek answers with open minds.
Without a doubt, this topic will
be discussed wherever voters gather,
in meetings and at dinner tables
throughout the county. It's pretty
certain that the electorate will become
knowledgeable about the cost of law
enforcement in Bradford County and
question those who stand in the way
of progress.

Reader thanks
Stearns
Dear Editor:
I would like to inform the
constituents of Congrssman
Cliff Stearns' district that on
July 25, the congress voted on
HR 2929 (ban permanent Iraq
bases) that the Bush
administration is pushing to be
built and have permanent
American military forces
stationed in Iraq.
The vote was 299-24 to ban
permanent Iraq bases and
Congressman Stearns voted to
support the ban.
I would like to commend and
thank him publicly for his
support. We did not send our
troops over for permanent
occupation in Iraq.
I hope our two senators will
follow Congressman Stearns'
lead and let the Bush
administration know by an
overwhelming majority vote
that we, the American
citizens, oppose what he is
trying to shove down our
throats.
J.D. Maggard


Wake up,
Wal-Mart
Dear Editor:
Lately, I have noticed
something that rubs nie the
wrong way at Wal-Mart with
one of their clothing lines
called "NoBo." This is a line of
T-shirt clothing targeted
towards young girls with
phrases that I find vulgar and
rude. Such phrases as, "Shut
Up!" "Dream On," "Dump
Him," "Get off my Planet!"
and I love me-not you."
I am fed up with marketing


companies that target children
and use them as pawns in the
name of free speech or
otherwise! What about
common sense towards our
youth? What'kind of example
is Wal-Mart setting?
Frankly, its disgusting to
have these T-shirts blaring in
your face as your trying to save
some money in their
merchandising aisles. I do not
want my child subjected to
such tripe! Now that Wal-Mart
has foothold in Starke they
think they can sell any kin of
"mind garbage" they want. I
am so sick of the corporate
noose that has been placed
around the neck of the
American public.
Stop demoralizing our young
people! I don't know how to
fight back other than to pray
and write this letter of opinion
to the newspaper.
Another thing I have noticed
on the magazine racks is
subjects on "Wicked Witches."
I believe common decency is
spelled out clearly in the Bible,
the Torah and other books
steeped in the experience of
human history. Clearly, we
must stand .up and heed the
warnings taught by our
ancestors and not repeat the


error of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Why must we go back to the
Noah and the Ark for a
refreshment lesson in this age
of commercial modernity?
Have we not evolved enough to
learn from our mistakes?
How do I teach my child not
to look at all these phrases?
What kind of custodian is Wal-
Mart becoming of our young
people? Is the stock holder
simply pirating our young
children's mind for short-term
profit gain.
Wake up Wal-Mart-put my
child's development first and
put your profits second! Let's
build a new store and sack Wal-
Mart on their butts! Let's start
right here in Starke and
franchise a new world for
people who love family.

Remember to
stop on red
Local law enforcement
agencies will join the Florida
Department of Transportation
and agencies across the state
and nation to raise awareness
of the dangers ..of running red
lights during Natilonal Stop oh
Red Week, Aug. 4'to 11.
Unfortunately, Florida ranks
near the top of the list of states
for intersection crashes, and a
third of those are caused by
running red lights. Excuses,
such as "The light was still
yellow," or "I couldn't stop the
car in time," abound, but there
is no excuse for running a red
light.
According to the
Department of Highway Safety'
and Motor Vehicles, in 2005,.'
there were 96 fatalities and
6,309 injuries in Florida as a
result of people running red
lights.
There are several important
rules to remember when.
approaching an intersection:
-Slow down and prepare to
stop when a light turns yellow.
-Yield to pedestrians. They
have the right of way
regardless of whether the
intersection is marked or
unmarked.
-Proceed through
intersections with caution,
even after the light turns green
Remember to drive:c
defensively. -
-Come to a complete stop
before turning right on red. It's
the law. on
-Yield to vehicles making
a U-turn when turning right oin.
red.
Local agencies .will have.
plain-clothes officers ina
unmarked vehicles, posing as
pedestrians and watching the,
intersection, for red light'-
runners. They will relay thI
information to uniformed
officers who will he waiting"'-"
around the corner to issue
citations for violations. These
citations will cost violators-
$188.50. ,
In addition, the national--'
Labor Day DUI enforcementc"."
period will run from Aug. 17 '
through Sept. 3. Nui-cr6:,s
1)l1 checkpoints will be held
throughout the area.

Continued from p. 1B
to bite at something larger than
it, but it ,.is not altogether
unheard of. Hord said there
was an incident this year in
which a female alligator
protecting her nest bit a
lawn mower.
"Sometimes -they're just
really good mothers," Hord
said.
Armas said he estimated the
al-ligator to be 5 feet in length.
Hord said mature females are
typically at least 6 feet in
length, though Armas'
estimation was close enough to
at least think this animal
could've been a female
protecting her nest.
'Still, the incident must be
thoroughly investigated before
any conclusions are made.
Once the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's alligator
management receives a call to
its .nuisance alligator hotline,
the agency's law enforcement
division is notified. A wildlife
officer responds, interviewing
the person involved and
investigating the scene of the
incident.
Armas has only been
working for the Starke
Recreation Department for
approximately four weeks. He
said he was ready to return to
wokk, but vowed he would not
be mowing that close to the
creek again "until I see that
thing's gone," or at least until
the creek bed goes dry.
,,As of July 3, only one
incident of an alligator bite had
been reported to e alligator
management this year. Six
were reported last year-the
lowest total in a 26-year span.
Since 1948-and through
July. 3-428 bites were
reported.
Bites are classified as
provoked and unprovoked.


Hord said judging from the
scant information he had, the
bite inflicted on Armas would
be classified as provoked,
though Armas did not
intentionally provoke the
animal.
For more information on
alligators, please visit the Web
site www.nvmyfwc.com/gators.
To report a bite, call the
nuisance alligator hotline at
(866) 392-4286.
Call the hotline if you
encounter an alligator more
than 4 feet in length. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission will
evaluate your complaint, and if
necessary send a registered
trapper to remove the alligator.
Here are some tips from the
commission for those who live
and play near alligator
habitats.
Be aware of the
possibility of alligator attacks
when in or near fresh or
brackish waterbodies. Attacks
may occur when people do not
pay close enough attention to
their surroundings when
working or recreating near
water.
-Closely supervise children
when they are playing in or
around water. Never allow
small children to play
unsupervised near water.
-Do not swim outside of
posted swimming areas or in
waters that'might be inhabited
by large alligators.
-Alligators are most active
between dusk and dawn.
Therefore, swim only during
daylight hours.
-Leave alligators alone.
State law prohibits killing,
harassing or possession of
alligators.
-Never feed or entice
alligators. It's dangerous and
illegal. When fed, alligators
overcome their natural
wariness and learn to associate
people with food.
-Inform others that feeding
alligators is illegal and creates

problems for others who want
to use the water for
recreational purposes.
-Dispose of fish scraps in
garbage cans at boat ramps and
fish camps. Do not throw them
in the water. Although you are
not intentionally feeding
alligators when you do this, the


end result can be the same.
-Don't allow pets to swim,
exercise or drink in or near
waters that may contain
alligators or in designated
swimming areas with humans.
Dogs are more susceptible to
being attacked than humans
because dogs resemble the


natural prey of alligators.
-Never remove an alligator
from its natural habitat or
accept one as a pet. It is illegal
and dangerous to do so.
Handling even small alligators
can result in injury.
-Observe and photograph
alligators only from a distance.

Sales tax holiday starts this Saturday


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
A Florida law allows that no
sales tax or local option taxes
(also known as discretionary
sales surtax) will be collected
on the sale of books, clothing,
footwear, and certain
accessories selling individually
for $50 or less, or on certain
school supplies selling
individually for $10 or less.
This tax exemption is in
effect from 12:01 a.m.,
Saturday, Aug. 4 through
midnight, Monday, Aug. 13.
The sales tax exemption
applies no matter how many
items are sold to a customer on
the same invoice, however, it
does not apply to individual
items which sell for more than
$50 or any school supply item
that sells individually for more
than $10.
Defined school supplies are
pens, pencils, erasers, crayons,
notebooks, notebook filler
paper, legal pads, composition
books, poster paper, scissors,
cellophane tape, glue, paste,
rulers, computer disks,
protractors, compasses, and
calculators.
Be careful, though, because
not all school supplies are
included in the exemption.
Only a specific list of items
identified in the bill are to be
exempted as school supplies.
For example, items labeled
as "pens" are tax exempt, yet
an item labeled as markers is
subject to sales tax. Correction
pens are labeled as pens but
are considered as any other
correction fluid or tape and
not subject to sales tax
exemption.
Clothing means any article
of apparel o-r footwear
intended to be worn .on or
about the body.
Footwear includes cleats or
spiked shoes, but excludes
skis, swim fins, roller blades
and skates.


Assessories included in he
exemption are wallets,
handbags, backpacks and
diaper bags. However,
briefcases, suitcases and other
garment bags are excluded
from the exemption.
Clothing does not include
watches, watchbands, jewelry,
umbrellas, handkerchiefs or
sports equipment.
The term "book" does not
include newspapers,
magazines, other periodicals,
or audio books. Book means a
set of printed sheets bound
together and published in a
volume.
Articles normally
sold as a unit
Articles that are normally
sold as a unit must continue to
be sold in that manner and
cannot be separated and sold
as individual items to obtain
the sales tax exemption.
Example: A .pair of shoes
normally sells for $80. The
pair of shoes cannot be split up
in order to sell each shoe for
$40 to qualify for the
exemption.
Sets containing both
exempt and taxable
items
When exempt items are
normally sold together with
taxable items as a set or single
unit, the full price is subject to
sales tax.
Example: A desk set
consisting of a stapler and a
pair of scissors sells for a
single price of $9.95. Although
the scissors qualify for the
exemption if sold separately,
the stapler does not, because it
is not listed as a qualifying tax-
exempt item. The full selling
price Qf the stapler and scissors
desk set is taxable.
Buy one, get one
free or for a reduced
price
The total price of items
advertised as "buy one, get one


free," or "buy one, get one for
a reduced price," cannot be
averaged in order for both
items to qualify for the
exemption.
Example 1: A retailer
advertises jeans as "buy one,
get one free." The first pair of
jeans is priced at $70 and the
second pair is free. Tax is due
on $70 and the retailer cannot
list each pair of jeans as selling
for $35 in order to qualify for
the exemption.
However, a retailer who
advertises and sells a $70 pair
of jeans as 50 percent off,
making them $35 a pair,
qualifies the jeans for the
exemption.
Example 2: .A retailer
advertises shoes as "buy one
pair at the regular price, get a
second pair for half price."
The first pair of shoes is sold
for $60; the second pair is sold
for $30 (half price). Tax is due
on the $60 shoes, but not on
the $30 shoes. The store
cannot sell each pair of shoes
for $45 in order for the items
to qualify for the exemption.
Gift certificates
Eligible items purchased
during the exemption period
using a gift certificate will
qualify for the exemption,
regardless of when the gift
certificate was purchased.,
Eligible items purchased
after the exemption period'
using a gift certificate are
taxable even if the gift
certificate was purchased
during the exemption period.
Exchanging your
purchase after Aug.
13
If a customer purchases a tax
exempt item during the
exemption period, and then
later returns the item for credit
but purcrrass a completely
different item, the new item is
subject to the appropriate sales
tax.
Example 1: A customer


purchases a dress for $50 that
qualifies for the exemption.
Later, during the exemption
period, the customer
exchanges the $50 dress for a
$75 dress. Tax is due on the
$75 dress. The $50 credit from
the returned item cannot be
used to reduce the sales price
of the $75 item.
Example 2: A customer
purchases a $35 shirt during
the exemption period. After
the exemption period, the
customer exchanges the shirt
for a $35 jacket. Since the
jacket was not purchased'
during the exemption period
and is a different item of
clothing, tax is due on the $35
price of the jacket.
Coupons, rebates,
and discounts
Manufacturers' coupons do
not reduce the sales price of an
item and, therefore, cannot be
used to reduce the price of a
tax exempt item in order to
qualify for the exemption.
However, in-store coupons
and discounts do reduce the
sales price of an item and can
be used to qualify for the tax
exempt status.
. Example 1: A jacket sells
for $55 and a customer has a
$10 manufacturer's coupon.
The manufacturer's coupon
does not reduce the sales price
of the jacket and tax is due on
$55 even though the customer
only pays the retailer $45 for
the jacket.
Example 2: A customer
buys a $55 shirt with the retail
store offering a 10 percent
discount. After applying the 10
percent discount, the final
sales price the shirt is $49.50.
The shirt qualifies as being tax
exempt.
Layaway sales
Tax exempt items placed in
layaway will qualify if the
retailer and customer enter into

Heilbronn Springs VFD gets new truck


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Heilbronn Springs Volunteer
Fire Department has
something new to be proud
of-its 2007 F550, 4-wheel
drive, automatic fire truck'.
While everyone likes a new
vehicle, the fire department
has never had a brand new fire
truck.
And what makes it even
more special, said Chief Terry
McCarthy, is how the $75,000
truck was acquired.
"The Heilbronn Springs
community raised $40,000,"
McCarthy said.
Then, Bradford County
Manager Jim Crawfor'd and
Commissioner Doyle Thomas
were instrumental in
contributing the other $35,000
needed to buy the truck.
"It has taken a little better
than three years," McCarthy
said of the fund-raising efforts,
which included community
donations and even bake sales.'
The truck is equipped with a
12,000-pound winch, easily
accessible roll-up doors,
emergency scene spot lighting,
a 27 horsepower diesel motor
and a 300-gallon slide-in tank.
Side compartments hold fire
gear, backboards, a generator,
2005 Holmatro extracation
equipment, HazMat clean-up
gear and other emergency
supplies, such as glass masters
(windshield removal) and
column masters (steering
column and wheel removal).
Put that with 300 feet of
booster hose and 200 feet of
hand line, and McCarthy said
the truck can pump 300
gallons per minute.
'"It's what we call a quick-
response vehicle," he said.
"Eighty percent of America's
incidents are EMS and
accidents," he said. "That's
what makes this truck unique.
It can respond to accidents, fire
and EMS."
The truck will be stationed
on S.R. 16 in- Heilbronn
Springs, but McCarthy said it
will serve a broader area.
"It not only serves Heilbronn
Springs, but the whole
county," he said.
"There's no line in the sand.
It can go anywhere it's
needed."
This was demonstrated in
the past month as it responded
to an accident on S.R. 100 near
the Union County line, where
its extracation equipment was
used to free a man from a car
accident.
"We want to thank
everyone," McCarthy said.
The truck was greatly


Heilbronn Springs Volunteer Fire Department was able to purchase this new
Squad 4 truck through $40,000 in community donations over three years and
$35,000 from Bradford County. It is the first brand new fire truck the department
has ever owned.


needed to help the station deal
with its high call load. It has
received 364 calls since the


beginning of the year totaling
2,500 man-hours and 675,000
gallons of water.

BRIEFING
Continued from p. 2B
"Well, that's not completely
accurate," he said.
In fact, he and others in his
field are faced with the
difficult task of deciding if it is
going to be a highly active
,hurricane season and if so,
passing that information onto
governments.
Between 1995 and 2005, he
said it has been the most active
seasons for the Atlantic basin.
While showing statistics on
the number of named storms
throughout the past few years,
it was. often the less active
seasons that had the local areas
.experiencing more devastation.
"Numbers don't show the
whole story," Letro said.
"It's not how many. It's
where they hit."
While indicators point
toward an active season over
the next few years, Letro said
it is hard to predict what will
happen for Union and
Bradford counties because
scientific research has not yet
pinpointed a way to predict
exact hurricane paths.
"He said 24-hour hurricane
track forecasting errors have
been cut in half in the past 15
years up to 2005.
SNo progress; however, has
been made in determining the
intensity of a hurricane.
"It's one of the things most
looked at in terms of hurricane
research," Letro said.
He also added that for every
three -times it's forecasted, a
hurricane may only hit once, or
33 percent of the time:
Letro said the public often
sees this as a false alarm, but
he feels it's really not.


"Even small probability of
an extreme event, if you take
no precautions, it can see
disastrous results," he said.
Based on hurricane
forecasting and emergency
preparedness, local EM
directors Doug York and Brian
Johns, and other elected
officials, have the difficult task
of weighing the information to
make the best decision for the
public in times of emergency.

Successful Events

Are No Small Task!


The North Florida Regional
Chamber of Commerce and
Main Street Starke Inc.. spend
endless hours planning and
organizing each event that is
hosted in Starke, from the
special events like "The
Strawberry Festival" and "Starke
Bike Fest" to the monthly Friday
Fests held the last Friday of
every month on Historic
Downtown Call Street.
Most people attend these
events without even thinking
about who is actually running
this, or how much did this cost?
Yes, there are costs, promoting
the events, staffing the events,
paying for entertainment, and the
list goes on.
All is done so that local
businesses have an opportunity
to increase their market base,
this is why your local chamber
and Main Street Starke Inc. do
what they do-they help grow
business.
Example, the last Friday Fest
saw 88 classic cars roll into
town. Normally each car has two
per, so that's 160 people coming
into downtown Starke on a
Friday night. Locals came out to
view the great cars that were on
display not knowing most of
these visitors came from as far
away as southeast Georgia,
Jacksonville, Middleburg, High
Springs, Lake City etc.
While this might not seem like
a big deal think about it, why
would folks drive 30 to 60
minutes to come to downtown
Starke or how did they learn
about the event'? Marketing,


that's how, your chamber and
Main Street Starke Inc. spent
hours of staff time researching
how to promote your town and
our business members to help
ensure that, they (our members)
are successful.
Direct mail, radio ads, local
newspapers, hand outs at other
events... all part of the mix that
helps the events grow. Who pays
for this? Sponsors, grants, a
percentage of our membership
dues all help to fund these
events.
How do we measure growth'?
We do surveys, we ask our
members how the events
impacted their business and what
suggestions do they have to
make the next event better.
Again, let's look at the last
Friday Fest event, the Chamber
and Main Street Starke's newest
members were open. Sugar Tree
Cafe6, the Whole Earth Granary,
Epoch, The Scent Bar, and the
One Stop Bear Shop, they all did
business.
Our two newest members, the
Whole Earth Granary and the
One Stop Bear Shop not only did
business, but it was their grand
openings. Not too bad having an
opening and a couple of hundred
people showing up. Luck or
great planning? Great planning.
The chamber and Main Street
work hard to show membership
benefits, these events are just a
small part of our package. Call
today and check out how we can
help you grow your business.

The station volunteers have
collected almost $15,000

estimated at $75,000.
Part of this comes from
asking the community to

Donations are vital to a

8B/10. This took effect on
April 1, 2007.
ISO, the Insurance

McCarthy said this rating
will mean a drop in insurance
for residents of the Heilbronn

"We can't guarantee that
everyone will save, but the
normal saving range is
anywhere -between 5 to 15
percent, and we are trying to
go lower," he said.
"With the recommendations

can go lower and maybe even
save you more money in the
future."

The future depends on

Lake Butler man's mini-sub finally hits the water


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The boat seemed sunk
before it even hit the water.
Lake Butler resident
Reynolds Marion had finally
reached the point where he
was ready to take a prototype
of his Marion Hyper-Sub (a
combination of a mini
submarine and speedboat) out
for testing. Yet it did not travel
far from his garage before the
trailer it was on bogged down
in mud.
Maybe it just wasn't meant
to be. That's what Marion said
he thought at the time.
After more than four years,
however, that would be giving
up way too easily. The trailer
was freed from the mud, and
the boat has now been
undergoing testing for
approximately three weeks on
an area lake.
It was an emotional trip for
Marion and members of his
team as the boat was taken
from Lake Butler to the
undisclosed lake (Marion
wants to keep the location a
secret).
"During the journey over
here, I don't think there was a
dry eye in the house," he said.
The journey is not over yet,
though. It was just one more
step. Along the way, Marion
has had to convince people of
his "revolutionary" design,
from getting people to join his
team and invest money into the
project to showing engineers
and architects that his idea,
though simple, does in fact
work.
"I don't know if people
understand how much courage
it takes to stand and plant a
flag and say, 'I know I'm right
,about this.' If you're wrong,
the whole world gets to know
you're wrong. If you're right,
the whole world gets to know
you're right. That takes a little
bit of courage," Marion said.
It also takes faith, especially
during trying times.
"If God hadn't kept his


hands on me, I would've come
apart," Marion said. "My wife
says to me all the time, 'I just
don't know how you didn't
completely come apart.' To be
honest with you, I don't know
either. Nobody will ever
understand how hard this was,
to stick with this and see it
through."
The bulk of testing Marion
and his team will put the
26,000-pound craft (30,000
pounds with a full fuel load)
through had yet to be
performed as of press time (the
craft ventured away from shore
and out onto the lake for the
first time on July 28), but
Marion was able to see one
positive the first time it was
put into the water. The craft,
which is 33 feet long with a
beam of 13 feet, 6 inches,
rested at a 2-degree angle,
which was what Marion was
striving for.
".....When you consider all of
this displace-ient, atl- -of-this
mass and all of this weight, for
us to pretty much say it was
going to rest at 2 degrees and
for it to be resting at 2 degrees,
that's a very big deal," he said.
Marion said the prototype
currently being tested basically
has to float, submerge and then
float again. That's all it has to
do to prove a new era in mini-
sub design has begun, he said.
"It doesn't really have to
have any surface speed. It
doesn't really have to have any
submerged speed. If we get
any of that, it's just gravy on
top," Marion said.
Of course the better the craft
performs in its testing helps,
but Marion said the concept of
the Marion Hyper-Sub has
already been confirmed. Naval
engineers and architects, and
graduates of .such schools-as_
Harvard and MIT, have
examined, in Marion's words,
"two- simple drawings," "and
agreed with what they were
looking at.
Marion said one such person
who studied his design is a


- S
~


The Marion Hyper-Sub cruises along the surface of
the water during testing on July 28. Reynolds Marion
spent more than four years to reach this point. The
idea for such a craft, though, dates back more than 30


man who was part of an
engineering team that spent
five years in the 1980s trying
to design a similar craft.
"He came to visit us,"
Marion said. "He pretty much
said straight up, 'I can't
believe the answers were-that-
simple.'
"We've had this confirmed
up one side and down the other
from a concept standpoint."
Marion said the design is
simple, much like the use of
the craft itself. He envisions
people being able to operate
the craft just by pushing a few
buttons and after just 15
minutes of instruction.
The Marion Hyper-Sub is
designed to operate off of gas-
powered motors on the surface
and off of battery power below
surface. The batteries recharge
while the boat is on the
surface.
A safety system allows the
craft to drop the weight of an
additional ballast system and
rise quickly to the surface in
the event there is a spike in the
cabin pressure, the carbon-
dioxide level rises to a
dangerous level or the craft
begins to descend beyond a
preset depth limit.
The craft will have value as
a recreational vehicle, but will


also appeal to commercial
enterprises as well for use at
resorts, beaches, etc., Marion
said. He also said he has every
reason to believe- there is a
high level of interest not only
from the U.S. military, but
militaries ...throughout the


years when Marion was 11. He is still looking to
collect a $20 bet from his sister who, when they were
children, said he would never build such a craft which
acts as a boat and a submarine.


world.
A story that appeared in the
Florida Times-Union in
January, and which was
subsequently picked up by the
Associated Press, quoted
David Taft, a spokesman for
U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw,


with saying Marion's design
could provide the military with
new ideas for the mini-sub
platform. Taft, in an e-mail,
mentioned the craft's ability to
operate independently of a

BHS grad


makes splash in


sport of rowing


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Winning 12 medals during a
three-year period is nothing to
laugh at, but there was a time
in her life when Lauren
Detlefsen probably would've
laughed at anybody suggesting
she would earn those medals in
the sport of rowing.
Detlefsen, a 2002 Bradford
High School graduate,
participated on the women's
crew team at the University of
Tampa for four years, yet she
remembers watching the
Olympics one year as a child
and not coming away with a
favorable impression of the
sport.
"I remember watching it,
and I was like, 'This is so
dumb,'" she said.
Now, however, Detlefsen
cannot imagine a life without
rowing, even though her
collegiate career is over (she
recently graduated from the
University of Tampa).
"1 definitely want to keep
rowing," she said. "I don't see
rowing not being a part of my


life. It's like someone you
want to marry. You always
want to spend your life with
them."
Most of Detlefsen's success
at the University of Tampa
occurred with her best friend,
Allison Zimmerman. The duo
raced as a pair. (without a
coxswain), winning their first-
ever race (Florida
Intercollegiate Rowing
Association Regatta) during
her sophomore year and
claiming eight other medals.
Detlefsen and Zimmerman
also competed in varsity 8+
(eight rowers with a coxswain)
and varsity 4+ (four rowers
with a coxswain) competitions,
claiming three medals.
That's not bad for somebody
vho was simply looking for a
way to fill her time.
Apparently, Detlefsen does
not like to let any time go to
waste during the day. She
competed in weightlifting and
softball at BHS and was a
member of the academic team,

A lot of activities are taking place at the YMCA


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Need a little extra
motivation in your workout?
Want to get in shape but don't
know how? The Starke YMCA
employs certified fitness
trainers and a knowledgeable
staff to work one-on-one with
you to develop a personalized
fitness program.
During the weekdays,
personal fitness trainer Brian
Smith can be found at the
Starke YMCA.
Smith, 45, said he was the
fat kid everybody teased while
growing up in Boston. He
joined the Navy at 17 and got
the nine-week-long workout of
his life and that in itself peaked
his interest in weightlifting and
bodybuilding.
In 1998, Smith's parents!
retired in Keystone Heights
and he relocated to the area to
be closer to them.
He had his own ideas about
how a gym should be and after
talking with several business
owners in the area, he and his
wife began making plans to
open one of their own.
Calling it the Family Fitness
Center, Smith took ownership
of the former Country Cabin
Restaurant and began an 11-
month remodeling job on the
building, which had been
vacant for nine-and-a-half
years.
Smith said he felt the odds
were already against him
because workout enthusiasts in
the area were a bit skeptical of
him.
'.,I was just the new Yankee
in town so people didn't know
what to think of me just yet,"
he said.
Offering a family fitness
atmosphere, customers grew to
trust him and began
recommending other
customers. Unfortunately,
2004 proved to be a bad year
as his family had no health
insurance and his wife needed
emergency surgery and was
Unable to work for several
months..That was followed by
hurricanes Frances and Jean
which hit Lake Santa Fe pretty
hard. As membership was
wavering, Smith saw an article
in the Monitor about plans
being made for the Bradford
YMCA. .
Smith said he met with
Amanda Bray, YMCA
executive director for
Bradford, Union and Columbia
counties.,. He -knew almost
immediately he was meant to
become a fitness trainer for the
IYMCA and shut down his


Amanda Bray, Brian Smith and Monica Baldree of the Bradford-Union YMCA.


gym, donating the equipment
to the wellness centers in
.Starke and Lake City.
Smith offers free fitness
assessments to all members.
The assessment helps him to
create an individualized
exercise routine so each
member can get the most out
of their workout.
"We talk about how many
days a week a member wants
to dedicate to exercise and
what they want to get out of
it," he said.
Smith assists clients with
establishing their workout
goals, and he keeps track -of
their progress for them. For
those who want to work with
a personal fitness trainer, a
small fee of $25 will give you
an hour-long supervised
workout routine.
Some of the equipment at
the YMCA includes a number
of Cybex strength-training
circuits, Cardio treadmills,


exercise bikes and cross-
trainers. There is also a free-
weight and stretching area
ready with dumbbells and
abdominal equipment.
Equipment orientation is
included with membership
where a one-on-one
introduction to the cardio and
weight machines is provided
by a YMCA staff member.
A few of Smith's' clients
from his former fitness center
followed him to the YMCA.
Take William and Debbie
Reynolds, for example. Three
days a week, they drive in
from Melrose to exercise .for
about an hour. William said
when they come to the YMCA
in Starke, they also do some of
their shopping and other
errands.
"We started coming here
becau4u .. We liked the
atmosph'fei'.of Brian's old
gym. Now we prefer to come
here as opposed to other gyms


closer to home because the
people in Starke are so much
friendlier," William said.
Debbie first began working
out with her husband as a
means to lower her cholesterol
and said that after using the
elliptical machine a few times,
her cholesterol level dropped
almost immediately.
"Maybe some people don't
come in and work out because
they're afraid everybody's
looking at them, but its not like
that at all," Debbie said.
"People are very friendly
here and we do socialize and
recognize the regulars, but toc
tell you the truth, I don't even
notice what exercises they are
doing. I'm too busy with my
own routine."
Bray has been with the
North Central Florida YMCA
for 11 years now. Five of those
years she spent at Camp
Immokalee in Keystone
Heights before coming to the
Bradford-Union YMCA'
When she isn't at the
Bradford-Union Wellness
Center, chances are she is
meeting clients or filling in for
a sick employee at the Lake
City YMCA or the after-school
programs in Starke or Lake
Butler.
When first opening the
YMCA in Starke. Bray, said
they conducted a market study
of about 500 households,
asking what services people
most wanted to have at the
YMCA. She said the majority
of respondents wanted a
wellness center, something the
YMCA is expanding upon
with its new location.
"As soon as we opened the


facility, we realized we didn't
have enough room in this
building," Bray said.
Plans were made to find a
larger space to provide the
services Starke families asked
for.
Starke location soon
to expand
Due to the close proximity
of Starke and Lake Butler, the
Bradford YMCA decided to
expand its membership
services to Union County
residents and changed its name
to the Bradford-Union YMCA
in January of this year.
Bray said she is very
excited about the new building
because not only is it much
larger than the area they are
now housed in, but it is also
conveniently located on U.S.
301 just north of S.R. 100
across from Bradford High
School.
The new building has a total
of '7,000 square feet and
currently rents office space to
"the Armed Forces Recruiters
and Home Respiratory Care.
"Not only does this generate
a rental income for us, but it
also allows us ample room for
future growth," Bray said.
The new YMCA facility is
currently undergoing
renovations to include not only
a wellness center, but also a


much larger fitness area,
aerobics, youth fitness and an
expanded child care area.
The new site comes with
about 3.5 acres of land-more
than enough space for an
Olympic-sized pool. Bray
said she hopes they begin
moving into the new facility
by the end of this summer.
"The atmosphere here is
great," Bray said, "and we're
always here to help with
routines and answer any other
questions."
Members of the North
Central Florida YMCA are
entitled to use of the facilities
and programs offered in Lake.
City, Gainesville, Crescent
City and Starke. Lake Butler
only offers an after-school
program, but those families
with YMCA membership are
also entitled to use of the other
facilities in the area as well.
Another program is called
AWAY, for Always Welcome
at any Y. In other words, if
someone goes out of town to
an area with a YMCA, they
can use the facility while on
vacation- or Just passing
through another town.

Food Fear

Factor at BC

Library

BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Teenagers, thihk you've got
an iron stomach?
Come prove it. at,. the
Bradford County -Public
Library. Test your ability to
swallow some rather gross-
looking yet tasty foods or
perhaps some not-so-tasty
fobds at the teen food fear
.factor on, Wednesday, Aug. 15,
at 2 p.m.
Each participant will have
an assigned area to dine as
food is brought to the table in
rounds. Young adult librarian
Robert Perone said round one
will not be so bad, round.two a
little worse, and the items will
progressively get worse as the
rounds continue.
Perone said it won't be quite
as bad as what one might see
ion the reality television show.
f"Our items will be edible, no
bugs or anything like," he said.
One idea he is considering is
barf dip that calls for several
different types of cheeses such
as lindenbuirg, japaleno and
hog's head cheeses made into
a dip with hot spicy nachos .
That doesn't sound too bad if
you like spicy foods. However,
it's the smell of the food that
might be a problem.
"The outside of the dish has
been sprayed with something
picked up at a hunting store
that has a pretty foul odor,"
Perone said.
Come hungry. You might
see foods such as cat puke
casserole or maggots in green
sauce. There'll be scrambled
eggs, too, although Perone
wouldn't say what would be
on them.
All youth between the ages
of 13 and 19 are invited to stop
by the library and sign up for
the program or call Robert
Perone at (904) 964-6400.


Debbie and William Reynolds come to the YMCA two
or three days a week to keep in shape.

BC coach's life impacted by more than football


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It has consumed most of his
life, but the sport of football
has its place in new Bradford
High School head coach Steve
Hoard's life, and it does not
have first priority.
Yes, football has given
Hoard some tremendous
opportunities in life, but he can
look back on difficult times in
his life and know he got
through those times because of
God and his family.
In fact, God and family are
important parts of what Hoard
is now trying to establish at
BHS. He said he is building
the BHS program brick by
brick. Those bricks, in order of
importance, are God, family,
school and football.
Hoard, as a Christian, will
tell you without God, nothing
is possible. He will tell you
that many players who come
through the BHS program will
come from broken families,
making it important, he said, to
establish a family atmosphere
surrounding the team. He will
also tell you the importance of
academics and how any player
whose GPA dips below 3.0
will be required to attend a
study hall.
"If we don't have all those
other things, football doesn't
matter," Hoard said.
Those so-called bricks all
played a part in building
Hoard's life.

God, family, school
-. Hoard was born and raised
in Jacksonville. He described
living in the country in the
Woods behind Cecil Field, yet
having a bus from
Jacksonville's Trinity Baptist
Church make the trip to pick
him up.
"I was very active in my
youth group," Hoard said. "I
actually sang in the teen
choir."
""Hoard fondly remembered
the church's youth director,

bit longer and

Georgia in the
early 1970s.


who made a difference in his
life.
"He cared about me
spiritually," Hoard said. "He
was a former college football
player. He kept my head
screwed on straight."
In essence, that youth
director helped make up part
of two bricks: God and family.
The man was someone Hoard
could lean on for support. The
same could be said of his
teammates on the Forrest High
School football team. The
players made up a unit that did
so many things together, such
as going to the movies, going
out to eat or going to church..
Hoard grew up in a broken
family, which made his
relationship with his
teammates- especially the
older ones-so valuable.
"That's why the guys on my
team were like brothers,"
Hoard said. "We did
everything together."
Hoard may have come from


a broken family, but he never
lacked anything he needed
because of his mother's
efforts. He said he grew up
poor, but his mother-Jean
Moore of Jacksonville-
worked several jobs to take
care of him.
"I remember how tired she
was coming home," Hoard
said. "She was always doing
that so I would have money to
go to Pizza Hut or be able to
go to a basketball camp. She
never complained, but she
always made sure I had what I
needed."
As one who did grow up
poor, Hoard said the only
escape available to him
seemed to be in athletics. He
eventually came to realize,
however, that in order to take
that route e would also have
to focus ttI. doing better in
school.
Hoard's English teacher
during his junior year of high
school knew one of the

Georgia Tech football coaches.
She told Hoard the school
would love to have him as a
player.
"She said, 'But you know
what? You better work on your.
grades.' That gave me a
wakeup call right then because
she embarrassed me," Hoard
said. "She said it in front of the
whole class."
Her words inspired Hoard to
start work on improving his
grades. He did not want to
miss out on his opportunity to
go to college, which he
eventually did.

Football
Hoard, a 1973 graduate of
Forrest High School, played
several sports. He played
basketball and competed on
the track and field team, but it
was the sport of football that
afforded him the opportunity
to go to college.
In eighth grade, Hoard was
6'4", adding 3 more inches to
his height by the time he was
in 10ih grade. He began playing
football in eighth grade, yet he
admitted he did not love the
sport at first. Practices had
something to do with that.
"We practiced during a
hurricane and practiced during
lightning," Hoard said. "Back
in those days, it was a whole
different animal. We got no
water at all. You practiced all
day, and you wouldn't get
water. Kids would drink ditch
water."
Hoard joked that it was a
wonder he survived, but he did
en route to becoming a college
prospect. He was a defensive
tackle-though he played on
the offensive line at times-
who was 6'7", 267 pounds,.
That was a rare find for
colleges back then, he said-a
player with that size who-also
had good grades.
Hoard wound up choosing
one of the two schools whose
fans dominated the
Jacksonville area at that time.
He said if you lived in
Jacksonville, you were either a
Bulldog or a Gator.
"I went to the University of,
Georgia," Hoard said. "My
mother was a Georgia fan. She
was born in the state of
Georgia."
It sounds like a dream-

come-true for any aspiring
athlete-to play for a big-time
program like Georgia and
coaches like Vince Dooley and
Erk Russell. However, that
dream never lived up to
expectations for Hoard.
Prior to his arrival at
Georgia, Hoard broke an ankle
playing basketball. That put
him behind, though he
eventually started for the
school's freshman team. Then,
he sustained knee and elbow
injuries.
Hoard left Georgia and
wound up trying to play for


Carson-Newman College. He
did earn a starting spot for
Carson-Newman, but then
hyperextended an elbow and
tore his biceps.
"That was it for me," he
said. "Back then, they didn't
have microsurgery and stuff
they have now."
It was a tough situation for
Hoard to deal with. He felt like
a failure and believed he was
the biggest disappointment in
Georgia football history-a
highly touted recruit who
didn't pan out.

Detelfsen was on track to
graduate in the middle of her
junior year, but she made the
decision to stay in school so
she could row one more year.
That year proved to be a
special one for her and
Zimmerman. They won all
three races they competed in
leading up to the Florida
Intercollegiate Rowing
Association Regatta, then won
that race as well.
During regional competition,
they were defeated by the pair
from Georgia Tech. They then
went to the Dad Vail Regatta,
earning the bronze medal'after,
placing behind California
Long Beach and Georgia Tech.
Capping the season with a
medal at the Dad Vail Regatta
was a highlight of a season in
which letlefsen and


Zimmerman spent many hours
practicing.
"We worked so hard,"
Detlefsen said. "Our grades
suffered. Our social lives
suffered."
That is one thing Detlefsen
discovered when she joined the
sport just looking for a way to
fill some time during the day-
it took up a lot of her time if
she wanted to be good. She
participated in two-hour
practices in the mornings and
two-hour practices in the
afternoons, six days a week.
Practice, combined with
classes and other activities she
was involved in, had Detlefsen
on the go from 6 a.m. until 10
p.m. some days.
Detlefsen did not do poorly
in school. She had a 3.4 GPA,
but she said her grades could
have been so much better if
she was not involved on the
crew team.
The sport not only took up a
lot of her time, but it took a
toll on her body as well.
Detlefsen said the sport is
grueling, with her hands being
the main victims. Working
with the oars left her .hands
with blood blisters, making
normally simple activities
difficult. It was hard for her to
write notes in her classes, and
eating was no picnic either.
"It got to the point where I
wasn't able to cut my food up
in the cafeteria," Detlefsen
said. "I had to have someone
else do it."
Detlefsen said she would ask
herself why she continued. to,
do that to herself, but she
would not ...change a thing.
Besides developing a love of
the sport, she developed
friendships with people from
throughout the United States,
not to mention meeting
Zimmerman,-who has become
her best friend.
However, Detlefsen is now
preparing, to attend graduate
school at the University of
Kentucky, which has no crew
team.
"I'm going to have so many
extra hours in the day," she
said.

HOARD
Continued from p. 3C

"'1 wouldn't even go home
and talk to people," Hoard
said. "I was so embarrassed."
Hoard, however, said it was
a learning-and humbling-
experience for him. If not for


God, his life could've easily
gone in another direction.
Instead, football remained a
part of his life. Hoard joined
the coaching profession when
he was approached about
coaching Tallahassee Godby
High School's freshman team.
He was hired in that position in
1980.
"We won the city


championship (that )ear),"
Hoard said. "I thought I was
Bear Bryant."
It was the start of a high
school career that could have
been short-lived if Hoard had
accepted one of the coaching
offers he received from small
colleges. The importance of
family kept Hoard in the high
school ranks.


A sad, but thankful-
time
Hoard had a brother who
was much younger than him-
Michael. Michael Hoard was
born with a severe case of
spina bifida, which required
more sacrifice from Jean
Moore to care for him. Moore
even moved from Jacksonville


So you think you can dance?

The Starke Academy of Dance recently held a week long dance camp where participants learned a variety of
styles such as ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, musical theater and hip-hop.


Ballet dancers (1-r) Emily Acevedo, Haley Hoskinson and Lindzie Gray.

recital for parents on

Academy of Dance.


to Gainesville when Michael
had to remain close to Shands
Hospital.
"He had multiple surgeries,"
Hoard said.
Just as his mother helped
him when he was a child,
Hoard said he thought it best
for him to remain close to
home and help his mother and
Michael. Taking a college
coaching job would've taken
up too much of his time. He
knew that from watching the
effect such a job had on his
cousin's life. It kept him away
from home and took away time
from his family.
"I was scared, really, that if I
went off to Kansas, for
instance, I would never see my
brother again, or my mom,"
Hoard said. "What if
something happened to her?"
So Hoard stayed in high
school, with Michael instantly
becoming a fan of whatever
school he was coaching at,
though- he could never attend a
game.
Michael died approximately
six years ago. Hoard had not
seen him' during the three or
four days prior to his death,
and was coaching in an all-star
game in Orange Park when he
died.
Hoard said he still beats
himself up over having not
visited his brother prior to his
death. Michael was expected
to be released from the
hospital, and Hoard believed
that's what would happen.
Still, Hoard was able to
enjoy time with his brother he
may not have had had he taken
a job at the collegiate level.
"I got to have a relationship
with (Michael) I hadn't had,"
Hoard said.

Road to BHS
By remaining at the high
school level, Hoard has
experienced a fair amount of
success, including a seven-year
stint at Union County High
School that included three
straight state championships
and a state-record 52-game
winning streak.
Prior to joining Robby
Pruitt's staff at UCHS, Hoard
served as a student assistant at
FSU (1982-83), varsity
assistant at Godby (1983-84),
varsity assistant at Tallahassee
Rickards (1987-91) and head
middle school coach at
Tallahassee Florida High
(1991-92),
During H .ijrd's tenure.
'Rickards finih-ed sec6od tb
Suwannee in its district four
straight years, thereby missing
out on the playoffs (only
district champions qualified
for the playoffs at that time).
Suwannee went on to win the
state championship during
each of those four years.
Hoard finally tasted a state
championship in 1994 .at
Union County.
Hoard described the
experience at ULCHS as
magical. He and the other
coaches all got along and the
program experienced-and


Steve Hoard


still experiences-a level of
support from the community
Hoard would like to see occur
in Bradford County.
"Whether they're 10-0 or 0-
10, their whole town supports
that football team," Hoard
said.
Yet Hoard said Ihe
tremendous success he
experienced in Union ( ontly
came down to one thing-
talent. The Tigers had six
players from their first state
championship team who
received Di\ ision I
scholarships.
"If you don't have the
horses, you can't run the
Kentucky Derby," Hoard said.
Hoard joined the BHS
coaching staff in 2000. He
coached the defensive line and
s rved as defensive
coordinator.

The present
Now, as he prepares to enter
his first season as a varsity
head coach, Hoard, because of
the timing of former head
coach Chad Bankston's
resignation, had to scramble to
find a full complement of
assistants. Plus, he is looking
at a roster that may include
only 22 players.
Regardless of the situation
he faces this year, Hoard said
he won't sacrifice the future to
attain success this season. He's
sticking by his process of
building the program one brick
at a time. That includes
fostering a brotherly
relationship between older
players and younger players,
ensuring that- pla ers are
keeping up in.,heIelassroom
and placing an emphasis on
God.
The community is
important, too. Hoard wants
his players to become involved
in the community. Likewise,
he welcomes suggestions and
support of any kind from the
community.
It all adds up to best meeting
the needs of the young men
who make up the BHS football
team.
"We will do everything we
can for your children," Hoard
said during his presentation to
the Kiwanis Club of Starke.

in grades K-3 can receive free
after-school tutoring in reading
and language skill
development.
Students with low Dibbles
scores or low academic
performance are nominated for
participation. The final
selection of students is based
on the recommendations of the
school principal, teacher and
reading specialist.
Confirmed participants will
receive no-cost child care
through the YMCA After-
School Care Program and two
one-hour tutoring sessions per
week.
All reading mentors are
volunteers. Many are Bradford
High School and middle
school students fulfilling their
Bright Future Scholarship
community service hours by
working with children who
struggle with reading.
Southside Elementary
School reAched a milestone as
being the very first rural area
school in Florida to receive the
program. Now, Southside,
along with Starke Elementary
School, provides tutoring when
school is in session.
The results of the program
have been very positive for the
district. In 2005, between 80
to 90 percent of the enrolled
children showed improvement
in their tests scores. In 2006,
Baldree said 100 percent of the
students showed improvement
on their Dibbles scores.
Students can be transported
after school by bus two days a
week to Starke or Southside
Elementary School, where they
work with volunteers on a 2-1
ratio.

"I can honestly say that was
the longest year of my life, not
knowing if we were really
going to survive the next day,"
Marion said.
It will all have been worth it
if the Marion Hyper-Sub
becomes a reality. According
to Marion, one submersible
designer described the design
as the Holy Grail of mini-subs.

said.
Marion committed himself
to designing and building the
vehicle more than four years
ago, closing an auto collision
repair business in the process,
but the vehicle has occupied
his thoughts for more than 30
years. The idea of building
such a vehicle popped into his
mind as an I1-year-old.
He was met with skepticism
then-his sister bet him $20
that he would never build such
a craft-and he still has his

The confirmation he has
received based on his concept
is proof of that, but so is the
fact he went from having
trouble finding anyone willing
to join him in the venture to
now having more than 200
registered partners.
"If each one of those has a
spouse, it's probably over 400
people who decided to believe
in this," Marion said.
Many of those people, like
Marion, have abandoned the
stability of other careers, to
devote their time and efforts to
the Hyper-Sub-people like
engineer Scott Shandlin, Gene
Mock, who has headed up,

build team members Tim
Bryant, Tadd Stahmann and
Bob Higgins.
There is one person, though,
who stands above all in terms
of having made sacrifices.
"The first person I give
credit to is my wife, Mary,
because she had to deal with
me being stressed out for four-
and-a-half years and not
getting to see me," Marion
said. "She took that initial
financial risk right along with'
me."
Marion and his team have
invested approximately $1.5
million to reach this point, and

Starke on Monday. In less

Starke.
Meagan Chatham, Hayes

kids had wanted to run a
lemonade stand all summer
and were very excited when
they finally got the chance to
do so. Many people donated
much more than the asking
price of 25 cents a cup.
"We ran out of lemonade
after an hour and a half then
took the money to the food
pantry. They were very
surprised and pleased with
what the kids did for them,"
Chatham said.
