Recreation

working

hard to

improve

facilities

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Participation in Starke Recreation
Department activities has been on the
rise for years, but now the department
is finally seeing long-awaited growth
in its facilities as well.
Recreation Director Alica
McMillian is thrilled with changes,
most of which are taking place at the'
Edwards Road Park.
On the westside of the park, behind
Riverside Uniform Rentals, two new
baseball fields are being developed
alongside a new playground for tots
and aconcession stand.The fields will
help accommodate the 500 or more
4- to 12-year-olds who participate in
the rec department's T-ball and minor
league programs.
"For the past three years, we


haven't had enough fields for the
demand we've had for baseball and
softball," McMillian said. Last year,
there were nearly 30 local teams
competing with a number of other
districts.
The playground was funded
with money raised through Project
Playground, while the ball fields and
accompanying facilities, including
parking, for the handicapped and
pavilions, were funded by a $200,000
Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program grant. So were
renovations to the basketball courts
at the park.
Contractors were hired to perform
a portion of the work, but McMillian
estimated inmate labor has been used
to accomplish more than 50 percent
project at a considerable savings to'
the city.


The playground is coming along,
and the concrete posts for lighting the
ball fields are going up now. Then the
irrigation system and drainfield will
go in as inmates install fences. The
project should be completed by the
end of March.
A separate $200,000 grant will be
used for additional work, including
improvements 'to the existing ball
fields, such as new fences.
Another important addition to
Edwards Road under that grant will
be a skate park. The concrete pad has
already been poured on the east end
of the park. Proposals to construct the
skate park are being sought now, and
McMillian said they hope to have it'
open within 90 days.
The design includes three side-

makeup


days set
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
To make up for the lost day of
school on Nov. 16 when school was
canceled districtwide following a
fight at the high school, the school
board has extended three previously
planned early release days into full
instructional days.
Instead of being released early on
Feb. 20, April'23 and an additional
early release day in May that has
yet to be announced, students will
be released according to the normal
schedule.
The board approved the schedule,
although Board Member David Smith
said an additional workday should be
required of teachers and staff, since
they were already expected to work
full days on the student early release
days. He estimated the payroll cost
to the board for the unscheduled
day off in November was around
$75,000-time staff was paid for but
did not. work. An additional day. of
work should be scheduled to make up
for that, he said.
"I don't think we as a board can
go forward without expecting some
work time in return of those dollars,"
Smith said.
Assistant Superintendent
Lisa Prevatt has met with union
representatives and said their position
is that the cancellation was unsheduled
and no fault of the teachers.

Cafeteria

managers

not

'heartless'
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Dotty Rondelli, head of the
public school system's food service
program, responded Monday night to
accusations that children who could
not pay were denied food.
Standing with several of them
at her side, Rondelli defended the
system's cafeteria managers to the
school board, saying they were not
"heartless," as had been implied.
"They work diligently to make
sure business is as it should be,"
she said, adding that the managers
welcomed the board members to
visit the cafeterias and see that for
themselves.
"We have but one request to the
board and the superintendent: when
in doubt check it out before you go
public," Rondelli said.
"Like the slogan 'No Child Left
Behind,' we don't intend to leave
children behind because we are
feeding the leaders of tomorrow
whether they have money or not,"
she said.
Later in the meeting. Vivian
Chappell, the school board member
who raised the issue, apologized
for comments that hurt the cafeteria
managers' feelings.
In December, discussing incidents
that came to her attention in which
students didn't receive lunches,
Chappell said. "If we've got cafeteria
managers that don't have a heart any
bigger than that. then we need to look
at our managers."
Saying she was upset by what she
had heard, Chappell apologized for
saying the managers "didn't have a
heart." but added she wasn't going to
back down from her position.
"I know that I've been told that
we have not ever, ever let a child go
without food. I have reason to believe
that did happen, so I'm not backing
down." Chappell said.

Input from skaters was used to design the grant-funded skate park planned for Edwards

Janet Adkins


Adkins
announces

bid for House
seat
(The following is an
announcement of intention -to
runor public office, which was
submitted by the candidate.)
Nassau County School
Board member Janet Adkins
has announced that she has
qualified by signature petition
to run in the Republican
primary on Aug. 26 to replace
term-limited state Rep. Aaron
Bean.
"It is a huge honor to have a
chance-to serve the citizens of
."Bradford and Union counties as
Shj'eiWnex-t-state representative.
My last nine yearsas a-membb i
of the Nassau County School
Board have taught me that
-public service is about listening
to taxpayers and parents and
property owners. Representing
families and ensuring that their
voice is heard has always been
my top priority on the school
board. It is my view that
elected officials should listen,
lead and innovate."


Adkins is a fifth-generation
Floridian. She was raised on the
Westside of Jacksonville and
graduated as valedictorian from
Trinity Christian Academy.
Following graduation, Janet
was the first in her family to
receive a college scholarship.
She attended Florida
Community College and went
on to graduate with a degree
in information technology
from the University of North
Florida. After her entry into
the workforce Janet returned to
the school to earn her master's
in Business Administration
and worked for 12 years as
an information technology
consultant for a leading
company in Jacksonville.
Adkins was first elected to
the Nassau County School
Board in 1998 and introduced
a strategic planning initiative
to create a strategic plan with
goals and action plans that have
enabled the Nassau County
public schools to achieve a
consistent A+ district rating.
-Nassau County schools have
been recognized as one of
the- top 15 school districts in
Florida and last year Nassau
County eighth-graders were the
top perforniers in writing in
Florida.
"Education is the one gift
we can give our children that
no one canrt ever take away. I
am passionate about education
because it has transformed my
life and created opportunities
that otherwise would not have
been possible. I -believe with7
a good education citizens can
realize the American dream. I
will make improving education
in Bradford and Union counties
a top priority," said Adkins.
Adkins introduced efforts to
improve fiscal accountability
and worked with lawmakers to
successfully adopt measures that
would improve school safety
and parental involvement. Now
eachschool system must prepare


an annual assessment on school
safety due to her determination
to protect students.
"I understand the complex
legislative environment because
I have actually worked with
lawmakers to get a bill drafted,
introduced and passed by
lawmakers. In 2002, House Bill
1661 was adopted and signed
into law by Gov. Jeb Bush. I
was approached by a parent
about problems she was having
with her local school advisory
council. After researching the
issue I discovered that the
bylaws that govern how school
advisory councils operate
were all very different and in
many cases placed parents at
a disadvantage. This new law
required a three-day advance
notice in- writing to all members
of any matter that was to come
before the council for a vote,
defined a quorum as a majority
of the membership, required
that meetings be held when
parents and business leaders
can attend and required meeting
minutes be recorded.
"The need for greater parental
and community involvement in
our schools is paramount to
the success of our students.
By creating standards in how
the school advisory councils
function, parents and business
leaders would have a greater
voice in the schools. Having
worked for two years to pass
this legislation gave me a
unique insight into the complex
process and compromise that
is needed to create meaningful
change.
"Asking for bills to be filed
and passing them into law
are two very different ideas'.
Generally there are about 2,500
bills filed every year in the
Legislature. The number that
pass is typically around 300 or
only around 15 percent. It is a
tough and detailed process that
surrounds an idea becoming
law. I think it is especially


more complex when.the idea is
one from a parent or from the
community. That is why I am
very proud to have been able to
take an idea from a parent and
work to effect a change that is
now the law in our state. I will
carry that same dedication to
ensure that families, business
leaders and taxpayers are being
heard. I understand what is
needed to ensure success in
the lawmaking process," said
Adkins.
Adkins has served on the
Nassau County School Board
as a full-time board member
since 1998. During that time
she served for three years on
the Nassau County Planning
and Zoning Board where she
developed a special insight into
land development issues and
local land use regulations.
As a member of the school
board, Adkins has pushed
for fiscal accountability and
greater transparency in how
the schools manage and spend
public dollars.
"I have always been in favor
of transparent government.
I pushed to have the school
board meetings televised
so people could participate
and become more aware of
what was happening. I have
consistently called for a budget
reform process that would allow
greater public involvement. As
a fiscal conservative, I have
voted to reduce taxes and have
challenged the school board to
work to reduce the property
tax burden. -Quality education
is about the mission and being
effective. We must pay teachers
well and then createstandards or
expectations for performance."
said Adkins.
In 2005, newly-elected
Clerk of Court John Crawford
appointed Adkins to the Clerk's
Citizen's Budget Policy Reform
Committee for Nassau County.
The citizen's committee made
recommendations to the county


commissioners to improve the
fiscal condition of the county.
The county commission adopted
many of the committee's
recommendations and has
placed Nassau County on a
solid financial footing.
"The work of this citizen's
committee helped strengthen
the budget and finance policies
that wereaaffecting the financial
health of our county. I was
proud to have beep able to serve
on this important committee
and equally pleased to have
the support and endorsement
of John Crawford, our county
clerk of court," said Adkins.
"The need for public
participation is critical to;
restoring trust and confidence
in government. I support the
efforts of Gova. Charlie Crist
towards more open government
and will work hard to ensure
that people have a -greater
say in how their government
is serving them at the local
level. As a fiscal conservative,
I am convinced that if elected
officials. trust the wisdom of the
taxpayers and- the voters, we
will get good results. Often in
government we have a spending
problem and how the people's
money is spent will be one of
my priorities," said Adkins. .
Adkins is involved in the
community through various
clubs and organizations. 'She
has worked as a volunteer in
the public, schools and the
Nassau County Boy's and Girls
Club, served on the Micah's
Place Advisory Board for-
domestic violence, and was
co-chair of Bush re-election
in Nassau County., She has
served as the Republicarn
state committeewoman"' for
Nassau County since 2000 and
served as chair of the Fourth
Congressional Caucus from
2003-2005.
Adkins currently serves as a
member of the Republican Party
of Florida Rules Committee,


Rotary Club, Nassau County
Alcohol and Drug Abatement
Coalition, Amelia Island
Council and Nassau County
Federated Reppblican Women.
In 2006, she was appointed
to the Fernandina Beach
Underground Utility Task
Force. She is also a member of
the National Rifle Association
and Blackrock Baptist Church.
"My involvement in the
community has been important
in helping me understand the
views and issues that confront
families and business owners.
The principles of what you
believe are fundamental to how
you make decisions. What you
believe defines whatyou do; and
I know what I believe and why
I hold those beliefs. Listening
to the community starts with
community involvement. As a
state representative, I will work
hard to ensure that my office
is working with community
)rganizations and citizens to
.isteir and bring the changes that
will help improve their lives
and those of their neighbors,"
said Adkins.

"I will be working hard to
reach out to voters in Bradford

scheduled in August of this
year. My grandfather was a
.farmer and worked for the
railroad; he always told me that

the fairest way to compensate

A date has been announced
for the substantial completion

Community School rebuild,
although the school board
has reason to be skeptical the
project will indeed be complete
by March 1.
Much of architect Paul
Stressing's presentation to the
board Monday was focused
on explaining the malfunction
of- the- heating system .._.in
two buildings on the coldest
mornings so far this school
year.
According to Stressing,
while the mechanical engineer
believed the process of
installing the heating. and

air units was complete, they
discovered while trying to
solve the heating problem that
a number of the "strategically
designed dampers" were not
properly wired.
Stressing explained the state
requires that a certain amount of
.--outdoor air come into buildings :
to prevent air quality issues like
mold. A programed damper was
not working properly and cold
outdoor air was being forced
into the-classrooms.
Stressing said they believe
the problem has been solved,
but added they would be on
hand as temperatures dropped
again this week to make sure
that was the case.
There will also be two
independent test and balance
trials run"-one by the contractor
and one by the school district-
to ensure that the system is
working as it should.
Board Chairman Randy
Jones said he didn't understand
wNhy the buildings were cleared
for use if the contractor hadn't
already performed a test and
balance of the system.

Academic team honored

at school board meeting


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Bradford High School
High Q team was recognized
for this year's accomplishments
at Monday's school board
meeting.
Coaches Ronney Harris
and Dustin Blanton joined
the team members before the
board, where they presented
the trophies it earned to school
board Chairman Randy Jones
and Superintendent Harry
Hatcher.
Harris said the team was
fortunate this year to participate
in the Alpha Division of
the North Florida High Q
Conference. For the past
couple of years, Bradford has
competed in the Delta Division,
which includes larger schools.
"It was tough, to say the
least," Harris said.
Harris candidly said they
thought they would "run
through" the smaller schools
they were competing against


this year. That wasn't quite the
case. The dual-meet season
resulted in a 4-3 record for
Bradford, but the team was
more fortunate as they entered
the division tournament,
handily defeating Bell, Bronson
and Union County high schools
to win the Alpha Division
Championship.
The championship title
qualified Bradford's team for
the conference tournament,
which has been hosted by the
Bradford team and First Baptist
Church of Starke for the last
three years. Bradford beat West
Port in the first round, then beat
Ocala Vanguard's International
Baccalaureat program to
qualify for the finals where the
team eventually succumbed to
Nease.
The team still took second
place at the conference
tournament, and Harris said he
was proud of them.

The remaining money in
the second grant will place a
football field and a soccer field
at the park in Saratoga Heights
and perform some landscaping
work, McMillian.said.
Permission from the state
will be needed to place those
fields in Saratoga Heights, but
it was necessary to change the
plans to avoid running into
wetlands at the planned location
on Edwards Road. The good
news is that the new location is
located adjacent to the middle
school and elementary school
and both schools can share the


benefits, she said.
Other work is planned for
facilites outside of Edwards
Road. Beginning Jan. 28,
Wainwright Park on Church
Street will be closed for a
period of time while the
recreation department replaces
playground equipment and
picnic tables, McMillian said.
Sidewalks will also be repaired
and other fixtures repainted.
"We're going to give it a
whole new facelift," she said.
As for Thomas Street where
the after-school program is
held, McMillian is seeking a
grant for upgrades there as well,
and she is waiting on the school
board to release ownership of
the Reno Recreation Center so
that facility can be reopened
to activities for neighborhood
youth.
The recreation department
pulled its activities from the
historic school- building when
it was deemed unsafe. The
school district said it would


repair the building and turn
ownership over to the RJE
Alumni Association.
The jewel in the recreation
department's crown, however,
will be the construction of
a new multiuse recreation
building back on Edwards
Road. This will replace use of
the old armory, which the city
has sold, and provide a new
headquarters for department
staff as well as a home for the
increasingly popular summer
program.
Prior plans for 'the facility
became too elaborate and
expensive, so the city is going
to salvage what it can from
those plans while scaling back
to make the project affordable.
McMillian said the building
would still be based around
an indoor gymnasium and
provide office space, arts and
crafts rooms, a music room, a
multipurpose room, an exercise
room, a concessions area and a
dining room.


McMillian said the city may
be ready to seek bids on the
new building as soon as March.
Progress toward that goal will
come as a relief because the
summer program has been
displaced since the Pratt Street
Park was closed to make way
for the new library. Also, the
yearlong agreement with the
purchaser of the armory has
expired and the rec department
is now paying rent for its
continued use of the building.
While McMillian refrains
from patting herself on the
back, it's undeniable that the
recreation department has
grown by leaps and bounds
since she took over as director.
"I always tell people I'm the
engine under the cover. I just
like to keep things running,"
McMillian said.
She's too busy being grateful
that recreation is no longer on
the city's back burner to take
credit. Instead, she points to
the help of Operations Manager


Ricky Thompson and Project
Director Joe Fisher, saying both
were integral to the progress
being made.
Fisher returned the gratitude,
saying McMillian is doing "one
hell of a job" and getting things
accomplished quickly that have
been on the drawing board for
some time.


A word about

vandalism ...
Hardly a week goes by where
the recreation department
doesn't have to repair restroom
or other facilites in its parks.
Vandalism is a huge problem
for the recreation department,
McMillian said, and it's hard
to move forward when so
much money has to be spent on
repairing senseless damage to
lights, sinks, toilets, etc.
While the city will take
measures to protect its
property, including installing
security cameras and pursuing,


those who seek to destroy what


those who seek to destroy what
the rec department has built,
McMillian said parents also
need to make an effort to be
aware where their kids are and
what they are doing.
.Recreation maintains public
facilities that are available
for everyone's enjoyment, so
everyone has an interest seeing
those facilities protected aid
cared for.

well as those needed to succeed
on the FCAT.
Greene said the class is
divided up into several different
work centers, at which two or
three students work ,each day.
The next day, each small group
of students rotates to another
math work center, and so on
each day.
The work stations include the
audio center where the students
listen to instructions over
headphones as they complete a
worksheet or card.
Another center, the literature/
math center, requires the
students to read a short story
that has within it mathematical
problems which they are asked
to solve, Greene said.
At the math/science center,
said Greene, the students are
'instructed by a worksheet to

room,'either by the standard or
metric system.

center,,4s, where the students
work on caleida-F skills, days

well as building with blocks

"Before the students begin
rotating through the centers,
they are given a pre-assessment
test on computers to measure
their mathematic ability level,"
said Greene. ."Afterward they
take a post-test to determine
whether they've grasped the
skills they've been praatiing."
Greene added that she also
actively assesses the students'
progress by walking around the
stations and determining which
students appear to understand


the studied concepts or not.
"Those that I see are having
difficulty I later work'with
one-on-one on whichever skill
is not quite understood," said
Greene. *
She said that the students
find the activities enjoyable
because they involve a lot of
hands on work, as well as their
being like games.

Angie Hopkins, who is a
fifth-grade teacher in her third
year at Starke Elementary,
received a $1,200 mini-grant
for her project called TOOLS
for Readers/Parents, (TOOLS
stands for Totally Outfitted and
Organized Learners.)
Designed to help students
master their reading skills, all
the work done by the students
under this program is done at
home, with the assistance of
their parents.
Each student is given a kit
which they take home and
work on for a week with their
"parents. The kit includes short
books and word games such
as Scrabble and Upwords. In
addition,the kits include "folder
games." The folders contain
several envelopes in which
there, are cards with words
on them. The words are either
to be matched up with their
antonyms (opposite meanings)
or synonyms (same meanings).
There are other such operations
to be done with the cards in
other envelopes.
In yet another envelope are
books with which the students
and their families can play a
form of I. Spy, i.e. finding
the cleverly hidden animals
oir objects within the pictures.
In addition, there are timed
reading exercises in the kits,
which asks the parents to see
how many words a ..minute
their children are capable of
reading.
The students are responsible
for bringing their-kits back to
class each week.
"So far, we've had no problem
with any of the students losing
the kits or forgetting to bring
them back," Hopkins said'. "
"The students also keep a
not'(Aok which '"li to
class each day and bring home
each evening so theirf'parents
can see what math skills are
being worked on daily and their
childrens' progress with them.
Hopkins, who, like Woods,
became a Board Certified
Teacher this year, said the
students are responding well
to the project and find it fun
and enjoyable, while also being
educational.,

This is a first on a series of
stories on minigrants awarded
to local teachers by the Bradford

incidents elsewhere that were
brought to her attention she
classified as "horror stories."
She defended her decision
not to reveal the names of

them from possible retaliation.
As for her decision to discuss

Conserve
energy, save

money in

2008
It's that time of year when
people resolve to make life
improvements, and the Florida
Public Service Commission is
encouraging you to add energy
conservation as one of your
New Year's resolutions.
"Even small changes in
how we manage our monthly
energy usage help save energy
and save money," said PSC
Chairman Matthew M. Carter
II. "By installing just five
compact fluorescent light bulbs,
you can save an estimated $25
per year."
Carter added, "Whether
your New Year's resolution is
to lose weight, eat healthy, or
exercise more, we hope energy
conservation is in your plan for
2008."
-Insulate your home. Check
the insulation levels 'in your
attic, exterior and basement
walls, ceilings, floors, and
crawl spaces. You can reduce
the load on your heating and
cooling equipment by as much
as 30 percent by investing in
insulation.
- Draft-proof windows, doors
and other air leaks. Move a lit
candle around the frames and
sashes of your windows. If
the flame flickers, you may
need caulking and/or weather
stripping.
-Open your blinds or shades.
During winter months open
blinds to let the sun warm your
home. Close blinds or shades
for large windows situated
in the east or west sides of
your home during the summer
months.
-Wrap 'your water heater
in an insulation blanket.
Heating water accounts for
about 20 percent of all home
energy usage.
- Keep your indoor
thermostat at 68 degrees in
the winter. Wearing a heavy
long-sleeved sweater adds
about 3.7 degrees.

-Uplug electronics. Unplug
phone chargers, electronic
devices and turn off your
computer and monitor when
not in use. When plugged in,'
they continue to use energy.
-Practice smart appliance
usage. During peak periods
utilities must produce additional
electricity to meet customer
demand. To help lower overall
energy consumption, the best

Get the most

from your

market
The New Oxford American
Dictionary 2007 Word of the
Year is locavore. A locavore, or
localvore, is someone who eats
locally grown food.
"'The word locavore shows
how food-lovers can enjoy
what they eat while still
appreciating the impact they
have on the environment,"
said Ben Zimmer, editor for
Armerican dictionaries at
Oxford University Press. "It's
significant in that it brings
together eating and ecology in
a new way."
The Future Farmers of
America Club at Bradford
High School has embraced the
locavore concept and is taking
up the challenge to eat more
locally grown foods, sponsor
Walt Westcott said.
The locavore movement
encourages consumers to buy
-from farmers markets or even
to. grow or pick their own
food, arguing that fresh, local
products are more nutritious
and taste better. Locavores also
shun supermarket offerings
because shipping food over
long distances often requires
more fuel for transportation.
Just because you're buying
produce at a farmers market
3oe-sn't mean it's grown
locally. Every farmers market
Thas different rules. If you're
shopping at the Bradford
Firntihtis Market, then rest
assured all the products are


grown or produced within
75 miles of the market. That
means you'll find fresh produce,
but you probably, won't find
bananas or Haas avocados.
Here are some tips for
getting the most out of your
local farmers market.
First, leave your list at
home. Instead, take a sense of
adventure. Second, get there
early. Not before opening,
because many markets don't
allow customers in before the
market's opening time. This
helps ensure the vendors are
properly set up and ready for
market when it opens. But do
plan to be there as soon after
the opening time as possible


Next, scout the vendor
booths. Stroll by and stop
at each booth, looking at the
items for sale. Even though
there are a lot of the same items
in each booth, each farmer is
different. After all, "seasonal"
produce comes at a particular
time of year. Therefore, a lot
of different farmers are bound
to have very similar products.
They will have them in different
quantities and they will have
grown those using different
farming techniques. The
farmers may also set different
prices, and they will probably
have different personalities.
If you're shopping for
yourself, or just a few family


members, you'll get a better
value from the farmer who lets
you pick up smaller quantities.
That leads to tip number four-
buy only what you can use, or
put up, in a week. A $6 bushel
of corn isn't a bargain for a
two-person household if it goes
uneaten.
Also, get to know the farmers.
How do they grow their
produce? Go ahead, ask them.
Talk to the growers. They love
to answer your questions. Ask
the growers how to store or
prepare produce or products
you're unfamiliar with. Some
vendors may give you recipes
to try and handling tips.
Now the adventure begins.
Try something unfamiliar
and see if you like it-this
experiment may cost you just a
dollar or two.


market. And without vendors,
there's no market.
Feel free to tell the vendors
what kinds of things you're
looking for. Chancesfare, if
they don't have it, they can
point you to the vendors that
do have it. Or, they can plan
to plant it during its season and
bring it to market for you.
Shopping the farmers market
will help you learn what
different foods are in season.
You'll develop an appreciation
for the rhythms of the seasons.
Part of the joy of summer is
homegrown tomatoes. The
delight of cold winter days is a
sunny orange. As you develop
a taste for seasonal produce
you'll discover produce with
taste.You'll also find that eating
a variety of seasonal produce in
its season gives your body the
nutrients it needs during that
season.
If there's something you
don't like about the market,
be sure to find the market
manager and tell them about
it. The market manager is
the conductor of the orchestra
called the farmers market. It's
up to the market manager to
bring both the vendors and
the customers to the market
and to make sure they're both
happy at the market. Give the
market manager suggestions
for improving the market so
that you can enjoy it more.
Last, but not least, if you
love your market, encourage
everyone you know to visit the
market and shop there regularly.
It's the only way to ensure that
the market you love will be
there next week.

Commission splits over


fire department needs


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
7T'/legraph Editor

Limited funds and divided
priorities caused the count\
commission to split over
needs for the volunteer fire
departments last week.
After hcarin, several fire
department needs during a
Deccrmber meeting, the county
commission asked Fire Chief
Percy Sulli an to take those
and any other needs before the
county fire council where the
council of chiefs could set their
priorities.
The fire council .set the
priorities in lthe 'ollo\\ ing order,
and Sulli\ an presented them to
the commission on Jan. 7:
1. Construct a station
fortheSampson City Volunteer
Fire Department. Currently
Station 9's equipment is taking
a beating from exposure to the
weather and has been a target
for thieves. Sullivan quoted the
cost of housing the trucks in
a station at $68.000-$88,000,
depending on the number of
bays, but that quote was from
a single company and more
competitive prices may be
available, Sullivan said.
2. Purchase a
replacement tanker for the
New River Volunteer Fire
Department. The age and
disrepair of the existing tanker
has made it unreliable. Prices
range from $40,000-$60,000,
Sullivan said.
3. Purchase a
-r replacement brush truck for
Heilbron Springs Volunteer
n Fire Department. The city
of Jacksonville has had one
available for $26,500. The fire
department would put up $8,000
in community contributions
toward the purchase and cover
the cost of outfitting, upgrades
and minor repairs. The
department asked the county
to cover the remainder of the
purchase price.
Sullivan offered his take on
.. the priority list.
^ ^ ^ eqf t if-
we can't protect the equipment
we've got," Sullivan said,
referring to the theft of
chainsaws from and damage
to hoses on the Sampson City
trucks. These items were
new, purchased with a grant
three years ago. "We're losing
money by not housing that
equipment."
In a tight budget year, meeting
any of these needs will require
-: reliance on reimbursement
funding from the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency for last year's
Wildfires. By Commissioner
John Cooper's calculations,
the purchase of $40,000 in
breathing apparatuses for
the Hampton and Brooker
departments will leave around
$101,000 to go around if the
reimbursement is 100 percent
funded. That it not enough
money to cover everything on
the priority list, even assuming
the commission committed all
of the reimbursement to these
r needs, and Cooper said that is
t;:: not a safe assumption. ,

Heilbron Springs was last on

School district looking


at securing campuses


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Twenty-four entrances to the
Bradford High School campus,
18 open or unlocked. So began
Bear Bryan's presentation to
the Bradford County School
B6ard durng a retreat session
held last week.
Securing school campuses
has become a priority for the
district, and Bryan has been
brought in from the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office to
assess the safety situation and
make recommendations the
board can act on.
Starke Elementary and the
middle school also have open
campuses, Bryan pointed out.
-"I as a parent, I as a bad guy,
I as a student can come and go
from those campuses anyway
I want to. There's nothing
slowing me down," he said.
Southside Elementary is more
*, secure.
While the goal is not to
,-create campuses that look like
prisons, there is a balance that
can be struck. Bryan used
examples of schools in Alachua
County and Keystone Heights
;,.that have aesthetically pleasing
campuses, but are also entirely

"J"ltjimately the goal is to
ucir the campus perimeters,
creag one way in and, for
emergencies, multiple ways
optrThis will change the ways
a number of schools are set up.
After hours, public areas like
ball courts and the track would
remain open to the public, but
the remainder of the campus
at the high school and other
schools need to be locked up
to cut down on vandalism and
burglary.
More than just fencing
and gates will be required to
secure campuses during school
hours. Staff mindset has to be
changed as well, Bryan said.
While surveying the campus,

Pleasant

Grove meets
Jan. 28
The next meeting date of the

has been changed from Jan. 21
to Monday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m.

Methodist Church annex.

he and one of the resource
officers locked gates as they
went along. Before they left, he
said, a number of those gates
had already been unlocked.
Restricting access to school
campuses is one step in the
security process. The board
also wants to target truancy and
make a greater effort to keep
drugs off campus.
Bryan said he is now more
or less supervising the school
resource officers at the high
school. They will become more
active in monitoring students
who skip school. While the
high school already contacts
parents, the resource officers
will double that contact by
making sure parents also get a
call from the sheriff's office.
Bryan said they also want to
increase the visibility of law
enforcement around campus
perimeters in conjuction with
the police departments in each
community.
At some point in time, Bryan
said they also want to begin
conducting canine searches for
illegal substances in the future,
but the goal is not to put a
bunch of kids in jail.
"My objective is to send a
very strong message that you
don't bring drugs to school,"
Bryan said. Its more difficult
to directly control things in
neighborhoods and in homes,
but Bryan said he wants to be
able to control what happens
on campus.
The canine locker and
vehicle searches would be
conducted during lockdowns,
which is something else staff
will receive more training in,
and not just for the purposes of
drug searches.
Lockdown procedures
are vital to helping control
emergency situations, so
Bryan wants to revisit and
update the district's crisis and
emergency plan. Particularly
important is what takes place

Bradford

Democrats

meet Jan. 28
The Bradford County
Democratic Executive
Committee will meet at 5:30,
p.m. on Monday, Jan. 28, in'
rnom 106 of the Santa Fe.
Community College Andrews
Center.
The Bradford DEC represents
the Democratic voters of
Bradford County and topics
will include the presidential
primary, the DEC booth at the


in the first two to five minutes
of an emergency, before law
enforcement arrives.
"I want to put lockdown
(procedures) on a fast track,"
Bryan said. He's working oh
those procedures with the help
of a review team that includes
staff, parents and students.
Once the model is complete
and approved by the board,
lockdown training and drills
will take place.
Direct-to-threat training will
be offered to law enforcement
agencies in the county as well,
which will prepare officers
to respond to deadly threats
such as an active gunman on
campus. Photographs and maps
of the school campuses will
be obtained and entered into
the county's computer-aided
dispatch system.
Parents need to understand
that when a lockdown is in
effect for emergency reasons,
the appropriate action is not
to call or rush to the school,
according to Bryan. Parents
have to trust schools and law
enforcement to handle those
situations, he said.
Othersecurity measures could
include the installation of panic
alarms such as those found in
banks. The silent alarms could
be used to notify authorities in
emergency situations.
Bryan's final report will
include recommendations for.
security cameras, updated.
signage, parking and traffic
flow.
All of this will have a price
tag, but just how much that will
be is unknown. When complete,
Bryan will take his suggestions
to the school maintenance
director, J.E. Mott, who will go
about developing a cost report
for the board.
Then it will be up to the
board to find the funds to carry
out the security plans.

Florida Surgeon General Ana M. Viamonte Ros and Deputy State Health Officer
Lillian Rivera (center and right) sit with Winnie Holland of the Bradford and Union
county health departments and listen to Union Emergency Management Director
Doug York.


Florida SG pays local visit


On Jan. 10, Florida's first
surgeon general, Ana M.
Viamonte Ros made a trip to
Union County.
During her visit, she met
with staff at the Union County
Health Department and toured
the facility, receiving an
overview of programs offered
there.
Viamonte Ros also
met with the Be W.I.S.E.
committee, school health
employees, environmental
-ealth department, emergency
management, staff at Lake
Butler Hospital.
Of her visit with the staff at


the health department Viamonte
Ros said, "I am always
amazed at the uniqueness
and ingenuity of each county
health department. The Union
County Health Department has
formed Be W.I.S.E., a very
successful communitywide
health promotion partnership
that promotes health awareness,
.physical activity and healthy
choices."
Viamonte Ros was also
impressed by the health
department's alliance with
the Union County Office of
Emergency Management and
the ways the two departments


work together, such as with a
November precautionary water
notice sent out by recorded
telephone messages from EOC
to Lake Butler residents. That
notice was rescinded by follow-
up messages the next day.
Viamonte Ros was named
secretary of the Florida
Department of Health by Gov.
Charlie Crist in January 2007.
Under new legislation, she
officially became Florida's first
state surgeon general on July 1.
She is the first woman as well
as the first Cuban American to
hold this position.

Rotarians
learn about
diabetes
Dr. Carl Eason addressed
Rotarians on the two types
of diabetes in their regular
meeting Jan. 9 as guest of
Rotarian Jesse Myers, saying
"Type II is largely preventable"
by exercise and good eating
habits, which really caught the
attention of listeners.
Type II is the most common
diabetic condition, affecting
90-95 percent of the 21
million Americans suffering
with the malady. Its cause is
lack of insulin, or the amount,
being produced by the liver,
or possibly the body's not
recognizing the insulin being
produced and sending it into
the blood rather than into body
cells. This situation may lead
to dehydration and the patient
cannot drink enough fluids to
compensate for the shortage
which will trigger a diabetic
coma.
Diabetes is not inherited,


but a propensity for it may be
handed down from generation
to generation because of poor
eating habits that are passed
down from mother to child.
Eason said "sugar is the
culprit," and almost every food
item, including milk, has sugar
in it. Since it is difficult to
prepare food without sugar,
Eason recommends the use of
beet sugar, saying the three
nonsugar sweeteners on the
market have side effects with
possibly serious consequences.
He advocates making
breakfast the largest meal of the
day, with dinner (the evening
meal) being the lightest. This
recommendation is the reverse
of eating habits in our society.
People who are overweight are
subject to contracting diabetes
because of eating habits that
caused the weight problem in
the first place.
Type II diabetes can normally
be controlled by insulin taken
orally or by injection.
Type I diabetes is the more
serious of the two, affecting
fewer persons than its


counterpart. It usually begins
before age 20 and affects more
white than black Americans. It
attacks both men and women
equally. The lack of insulin,
or its failure to enter the body
cells causes a sugar buildup that
may result in life threatening
ketoacidosis, a buildup of
ketones (acid) in the blood, a
warning sign that the diabetes
is out of control and immediate
medical attention is required.
Eason received the undivided
attention of Rotarians since
the illness is no respecter of
persons, and each of us could
become a victim.
Buster Rahn,
Telegraph Editorialist

The House: a safe, fun place for teens to gather


BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Stiff Writer
Ten years ago when Mark
Santiago was just out of high
school, he said he had a dream
of opening a place for
teenagers to go where they
could play games, listen to
music, enjoy snacks, and
socialize. But he won't call it a
"hangout."
"I don't like the term
because it has too many
negative connotations," said
Santiago.
What he had I mind, he said,
was a positive place-a
meeting place where the teens
could have fun without
reesorting to alcohol, drugs or
rowdy behavior (smoking by
anyone under 18 is also
prohibited.) What was more
important to Santiago
however, he said, was the
positives that could come out
of such a place.


"Basically, I saw it as asafe
place for kids to come to
play," he said.
In addition, he conceived of
it as a sort of sanctuary where


kids who might be having
problems at home, with their
peers or at school could, if
they wanted, have someone to
talk to who would really listen


and would try to help them
straighten out their lives.
"A lot of kids don't have a
first home to go home to and
maybe living with friends or


relatives," Santiago said, "so
they can come here and think
of it as a sort of home where
they can not only have fun,
but where there's someone


they can trust, someone they
can unburden themselves to."
Santiago said that he was

McCord

chosen for

ambassador

program
BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer
Forrest McCord, a seventh-
grader at Lawtey Community
School, will be traveling to
four European nations in late
June as a student ambassador.
He and 40 other junior-high
level students from across the
country will visit Austria,
France, Italy and Switzerland
over a period of 20 days. They
will be there to learn about the
nations, interact with the
people, keep journals and take
photographs.
The student ambassdor
program is administered under
the auspices of the People to
People Ambassador Programs,
which was established in 1956
under then U.S. President
Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Said Eisenhower at the time,
"I have long believed, as many
before me, that peaceful
relations 'between nations
require mutual respect between
individuals."
Toward that end Eisenhower
called a White House
conference to which were
invited American political,
business and religious leaders.
The result was the creation
of People to People
Ambassador Programs based
on the idea that ordinary

Put Your


Rogers
concert
coming soon
James Rogers, the popular
singing star from Dollywood at
Pigeon Forge, Tenn., will
return to Starke Saturday, Feb.
2, at 7 p.m., for a concert.
Country music will be the
order of the evening and the
Bradford Ecumenical
Ministries Food Pantry will
benefit from the proceeds of
the concert.
Tickets will be $10 each for
adults and $5 for students.
Tickets can be purchased at the
door, or advance tickets will be
available at the Bradford
County Telegraph and many
local churches. For ticket
information, you call (904)
964-5875 in the evenings.
Rogers is the featured star at
Dollywood, Dolly Parton's
theme park at Pigeon Forge.
On the road in the off season,
he presents a show that
contains something for
everyone from 8 to 80. He is
called one of the most
engaging entertainers
performing today.
Rogers is a singer,
songwriter, musician, and
much more. His composition,
"I Guard America," has been
selected as the official song of


the Army and Air National
Guard. His "Fly Eagle Fly"
was chosen as the bicentennial
song for the state of
Tennessee.
He combines his exceptional
talents in a mix of musical and
singing skills, country charm
and a charismatic wit to-
thoroughly entertain his
audiences. His down-home
patter is warm and humorous.
His shows contain songs from
the 50s and 60s and include
country, folk and ballads,
popular music and new music
he has composed himself.
Roger's first appearance in
the spotlight came when he
was five years old and in the
first grade. He was chosen to
represent his class in a talent
show. This humble beginning
sparked the flame of musical
creativity. He received his first
guitar at Christmas when he
was 11 years old-and the rest,
as they say, is entertainment
history.
He won the 1983 National
Music Festival, sponsored by
Dollywood's forerunner, Silver
Dollar City and WIVK in
Knoxville.
'Rogers received a perfect
score in that contest and was
selected for top honors from
more than 2,000 entrants.
He then became a regular
performer at the entertainment.

Mark Santiago (left), owner of the House, serves
Snacks to Destiny Castillo.


HOUSE
Continued from p. 1B
taken aback a bit, but gratified
that some of the youth call him
"dad,"
"I'nm 28, and to have


someone only a decade or
more younger than you
addressing you that way is
special," he said. He also saw
it as a poignant reminder of
what's lacking in many of
these kids' home lives, he said.
Santiago said the idea was
born in him when he was these


kids' age. While he never ran
afoul of the law, he said he
was coming close with many
of the rambunctious and
unwise activities to which
many teenagers are prone.
Last October Santiago's
dream became a reality when
he opened The House on S.R.
16, one block east of U.S 301.
Santiago, whose personal
enthusiasm and energy are
infectious, said he sees The
House as something of a
personal mission informed by
his Christian beliefs.
He is currently a deacon at
Grace Community Fellowship
Church in Starke, but said he
is not there to impose his
religious beliefs on anyone-
just to create a safe
environment for the kids to be
themselves, have fun, and
hopefully to provide a sense of
direction to many of them, if
they are seeking and are open
to it.
Santiago said that what the
teenagers who come to The
House will find are two pool
tables, TV, an X-Box video
game system, music, and
games they can play such as
chess, Uno and Hoopla.
There is a concession stand
where the kids can buy snacks,


soda, or many of the other
things they can get at the
average convenience store.
"We are planning to add
pizza and coffee to the
selections," he said.
"On Friday and Saturday
nights we have live bands
playing, mostly made up of
teenagers from around the
area," Santiago said.
He made it clear thar it's
mainly the type of music that
appeals to today's teens, i.e.,
heavy metal, grunge and
alternative rock'n roll.
"You're probably not going
to hear too much easy-listening
music," Santiago said
laughing.
Santiago made it clear that
The House is opened to all
kinds of music and the
audiences that enjoy them,
from hip-hop to fusion, if
that's what the kids want.
That being said, Santiago
emphasized that songs witF
profanity-laced or anti-social
lyrics are not permitted.
"I love my daughter coming
here because I know she's safe
and not going to get into
trouble," said Sue Castillo of
her daughter, Destiny, who has
been coming to The House
since it first opened,
He made it clear that The
House was still a work in
progress, with many plans for
the future.
"On Tuesdays we plan to
have "open .mic night," where
anyone can get up on the stage
and play or sing a song, read
their poetry, do a comedy
monologue or express their
creativity in any other way.
In March, April and May, he
said there will be battles of the
bands with cash prizes. On
Saturday, Jan. 19 there is a
Halo 3 competition planned
(played on X-Box) also with


cash rewards.
Santiago, who has been
married to his wife, Elisha, for
five years and they have two
small children, Aaron and
Elizabeth.
He received his bachelors
degree in marketing from the
University of North Florida
and his masters degree in
business administration from
Regent University in Virginia.
He and Elisha met when
they were both performers in a
Christian-based acting troupe
called "New Life Drama."
Prior to that he worked as a
disk jockey in clubs, where he
said he was exposed to both
the positive and negative
aspects of that scene and got,
ideas about how to eliminate
the latter.


The House came about as a
result of his forming his own
corporation, appropriately
called Creative Solutions,
L.L.C., he said.
Santiago said he has
tentative plans to open another
such establishment in
Keystone Heights at some
undetermined time in the
future, but right now he's
focusing all his attentions on
making The House right here
in Starke a success.
The House's hours are from
3-7 p.m, Mon-Thurs., 3-
midnight on Friday and 7-12
p.m. on Saturday. Admission
is $3, Mon.-Thurs. and $7 on
Friday and Saturday.

I Assessing the property tax amendment


Between fiscal year 1.999 and fiscal year 2005, Florida's
population increased by 17 percent while property taxes
increased 68 percent, or $11.4 billion. The combination
of population growth and price inflation caused state
expenses to escalate by about the same amount as taxes
increased. The cost of county operations exceeded the
'consumer price index because county purchases are
more concentrated on expensive items such as fuel,
insurance, pensions and personnel, compared to the
average household purchases of food, shelter and clothing,
which increased at a slower rate.
Some of the increased spending went into roads,
new construction and repairs to existing roads, and
infrastructure to meet the needs of the increased population.
Law enforcement and incarceration of jail inmates also
contributed to higher spending by counties. (Condensed
from a report, "Analysis of County Spending Patterns,"
prepared for The Florida Association of Counities, by Fish
Kind & Associates, Orlando,"March 7, 2007.)
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and the Legislature, in an
effort to slash the cost of county government, have placed
a proposed Constitutional amendment on the ballot
for voters' consideration in the upcoming presidential
preference primary, scheduled for Jan. 29. For ratification,
the proposed amendment will require an affirmative vote
,by 60 percent or more of voters. The Legislature changed
,the' required simple majority (50 percent plus one) to
'discourage frivolous amendments from cluttering the
Constitution.
The proposed amendment is lengthy, 633 words, far too
long to be read and understood in the confines of the voting
booth. It behooves all voters to familiarize themselves
with its contents. It deserves careful consideration before
it is approved or rejected by Florida voters because it
alters the distribution of the tax burden, with ramifications
beyond personal interests and the local economy.
On the surface, it is being touted as a tax reduction
supported by Realtors and commercial property owners,
and, opposed by city and county commissioners.
Homeowners and Realtors have a vested interest in
reducing taxes on homesteads, in constrast with public
officials who see any reduction in government income as
being unacceptable for obvious reasons.
Two groups, commercial property owners and renters,
have a valid reason to oppose the proposal because
exemptions will not apply to buildings other than to
owner-occupied homes. School officials are seriously
concerned that tax cuts will substantially reduce school
funding, but framers of the proposed amendment left
school taxes unchanged in specific areas. Schools will
suffer a peripheral loss as assessments are capped, but
will gain revenue as homesteads are reassessed following
a change in status of the property.

years loses its exemption by sale or change to rental

8thtt OVehit.rients. The6 Save Our Homes 3 percent cap is
lost when a home changes hands by gift, sale, inheritance
or other means, even within the family, and immediately
becomes subject to reassessment to actual value.
The assessment of property for taxing purposes is
complicated beyond belief, and passage of this proposed
amendment will add substantially to the confusion for the
average person.
In discussing the issue, Bradford County Property
Appraiser Jimmy Alvarez pointed out some interesting
facets of this proposal, one of which is the verbiage
that is approximately 10 times the 75 word legal length
of amendments proposed under the citizens initiative
process. It is also interesting to note its placement on
the presidential preference ballot, rather than the general
election ballot in November. The administration wished to
have the proposal retroactive to Jan. 1,2008, necessitating
the earliest vote possible.
The early election date does not give voters the
necessary time to properly digest the ramifications of
passing the amendment. Many pro-passage individuals
and groups prefer the early voting date because the
catch phrase "tax reduction" will prevail without careful
consideration of lasting effects, that is, a reduction of
services or an increase in taxes. Historically, county and
city commissioners have been innovative in finding new
revenue sources, and any reduction in income will be met
with offsetting new.or-additional revenue.

Breaking the amendment down
The legislative proposal has four sections:
1. Increasing homestead exemption.


No school
child goes
hungry
Dear. Editor:
This letter was written in
response to the article of Dec.
13 regarding "Students will not
go hungry."
I would like to set the record
straight. No child has gone
without a meal at lunch. If the
person who "witnessed" the


child's plate being taken away
had stuck around, they would
have seen that the child
received a lunch and was not
sent to class without one, as
the paper stated.
Since we do, not know what
school or what child-this
information was requested but
has not been given to me-I
cannot fully check into the
matter.
We do have a "no charge"
policy but, we charge lunches
every day. If you had checked


The amendment, if passed, will increase homestead
exemption by $25,000, not to be confused with a single
$50,000 exemption because it will exempt the first and
third $25,000 increments. The first $25,000 assessment of
a home is already exempt in the 1968 Constitution. The
new proposal, if passed, will exempt the third increment,
between $50,000 and $75,000, thus owners of $50,000
and $75,000 homes will pay similar amounts of taxes on
the assessed value between $25,000 and $50,000.
The first exemption of an assessment reduces school
taxes, but the second exemption does not reduce school
taxes, and to that extent, the new exemption does not
represent as great a savings to the property owner as does
the first.
There are a few single-wide mobile homes in Bradford
County assessed with the land on which they sit and are
subject to ad valorem taxes. That type home is essentially
the only home assessed in the $25,000 range. If a mobile
home is located on other than homestead land, the owner
pays taxes via a license tag- similar to vehicle tags. Late
model double-wides are taxed in the same manner as stick-
built houses, with many drawing substantial assessments.
The first $25,000 assessment was included in the 1968
revised Constitution as an attraction to voters. Promoters
of the new document were fearful voters would turn
down the new charter if they were not provided with an
incentive for its passage.
2. Transfering Save Our Homes benefits.
For the past 13 years, Florida homeowners have seen
increases in assessments on their homes limited to three
percent per year, regardless of the inflation rate. The
difference between the controlled assessment and the
actual cash value of the home is recorded as a benefit,
and accumulates as long as the owner retains ownership.
Thus, the longer an owner lives in the house, the more his
accumulated savings grow. As an example, a homeowner
living in a house assessed for $100,000 will see his
assessment increase $3,000 per year, and after 10 years
his assessment will reach $130,000.
If in the intervening years the home's actual market
value has increased to $200,000, but he is assessed only
on the $130,000, his savings will be the tax rate times the
$70,000 difference.
Meanwhile, a neighbor buying a similar home as his
first home, or who is from out of state, will be assessed on
the total cash value, or $200,000, a substantial difference
in the amount of taxes levied on homes of similar value.
The proposed amendment would allow homeowners to
carry the savings in assessments over to a new home in
the event they purchase a new home within the time set in
the proposal. The savings may be substantial.
Alvarez says the mobility clause that provides for the
Save Our Homes benefit to be transferred statewide is:
affected by millage rates of the involved counties. Many
of the larger counties, primarily in South Florida, are
,assessing at.ower.rates. For instance, the Palm Beach ,,
millage rate is five mills, as opposed to many small
6Coutti'es charging the-legal limit, 10 mills. In that situation *;
a $100,000 benefit is worth $500 in Palm Beach County
and that's the amount it would be worth if transferred
to Bradford County. The same home would accumulate
a benefit of more than $900 in Bradford County, where
the assessment is above nine mills, and the amount is
transferable to other counties.
The inequity of being taxed differing amounts on homes
of equal value based on the length of time the owner has
claimed homestead exemption represents unfair taxation,
and has been tested in the courts. The system was upheld
by the Florida Supreme Court, but the final decision will
be made by the U.S. Supreme Court.
3.Authorizing a $25,000 exemption of personal property
taxes.
This provision of the proposed amendment has little
effect on the average Florida resident-, but does provide
some relief for owners of equipment utilized in business,
such as contractors and farmers. Homeowners already
have exemptions for furniture, and personally owned
automobiles that are taxed with license plates.
4. Capping increases on nohhomestead property at 10
percent.
Nonhomestead properties would be protected from
annual increases in property assessments above 10 percent.
This provision provides limited protection to owners of
property at little or no cost to the state and, unlike the
provisions for homestead properties, does not provide
porabiltiy of tax savings toAhepurchase of new property.

Telegraph Editorialist


with me before the article was
printed, I would have
explained .our procedure to you
and you would have known
that the whole truth was not
spoken in the board meeting.
We allow a child to charge
three times. A note goes home
to the parent each day. On the
fourth day, if a child has no
money and comes through the
lunch line, their plate is taken
away and they are sent to the
office to call mom or dad for


money. They return to the
cafeteria, usually with money
from internal accounts in the
school office, or a phone call
to the cafeteria from the parent
saying they will send *money
tomorrow. The phone call to
the parent usually gets their
attention when the notes have
failed. I am sure parents do not
drive to a fast food
establishment, order food, and
tell cashier they will be back to
pay tomorrow.
It is not unusual to have 30
to 40 charges daily at the
larger elementary schools. The
children who reach the limit
are few and far between. We

Sneaky
politics?
Dear Editor:
Bradford Couqty Sheriff
Bob Milner-and candidate
for a seat in the House of
Representatives-pulled the
two sneakiest and shadiest
political maneuvers of his
career as sheriff of this county
when he prepared a bill giving
his employees career service
status and prevailing upon one
of his appointed deputies to
stand for sheriff in the
upcoming election.
Now, I know that this is a
free country and elections are a
free democratic process but
this has got to be more than an
accident. To me it reeks of
extension of political power far
beyond that intended by our
forefathers who gave us our
federal and state constitution.

1963, "Student Amnbassador

news they received about
Forrest's academic
achievements.
In 2006, they received a
book from People to People
which listed Forrest as one of
the nation's top 500 sixth-
grade students.
"I said, 'Are they sure they
mean Forrest?'" said Marti,
good-naturedly ribbing her

However, she was aware

FRED THOMPSON a Commonsense Conservative

Supports Federalism: The 10th Amendment

Do you really believe the Federal Government is going to solve your problems? The response I always get
from friends is "no". They recognize that regardless of who is in Washington, whether they are Democrats or
Republicans, the Federal government is simply too far away from our everyday lives to make an impact. It's
like hiring a contractor 500 miles away to fix the roof.

"The federal government should do only those things specifically called for in the Constitution. All others shall
remain with the states or the people..." Ronald Reagan, Nov. 13, 1979, calling for a return to Federalism as
described in the 10th Amendment.

A CATO Institute article FREDeralism! Endorsing Fred Thompson says, "If elected, would today's
GOP candidates be Bush Republicans or Reagan Republicans? Romney, McCain, and Giuliani talk about
cutting federal "waste" and "pork". But the problem with the $2.8 trillion federal budget is not $30 billion in
pork, it is $2 trillion of spending that violates the 10th Amendment to the Constitution as properly the
responsibility of the states and the people." Another CATO Institute article, Huckabee: The Biggest Big-
Government Conservative says, "If you liked George W. Bush's brand of big-spending, big-government
conservatism, you'll love Mike Huckabee. ...Huckabee rejects federalist solutions."

Presidential Candidate Fred Thompson on the other hand points out how the 10th Amendment is abused
by those currently in Washington saying "Perhaps the clearest example of federal over-involvement in state and
local responsibilities is public education. It's the classic case of how the federal government buys authority
over state and local matters with tax-payer money and ends up squandering both the authority and the money
while imposing additional burdens on states.
Between 1970 and 2005, federal spending on education increased nearly 150 percent without results to match.
The No Child Left Behind law itself increased federal funding by some 26 percent, while creating 50 new
educational programs nationally, imposing almost 7 million hours and more than 140 million dollars in
compliance time and costs. The classrooms of America, where the learning actually takes place, receive but 61
cents out of every tax-payer dollar appropriated."

Fred Thompson is the only Commonsense Conservative that would work to Reduce Federal Mandates
that would help state taxpayers across the board.

that he was a young man with
an uncommon interest in world
affairs and compassion for
pooer and malnourished
children living around the
world.
Forrest said he sends $30
each month to World Visions,
an international relief
organization, to sponsor a
child, Victor, living in
Indonesia.
Forrest sad he earned the
money helping his parents with
various household chores.
Marti, now a stay-at-home
mom after retiring as a
corrections officer, said
Forrest undoubtedly was
influenced in his global
concerns by his father, who
avidly keeps up with world
events. Forrest has two
brothers, Hunter and Houston,
as well three sisters, Autumn,
Summer and Jennifer
Ingram, a retired investor,
said that Forrest partially
developed his empathy from
him, his wife and their church,
but that-he always seemed to
have an inborn sense of
compassion for others.
"When you see a child with
tears in his eyes as he watches
the suffering of small children
on TV, well, that's special,"
said Ingrain. "I just love him to
death and am as proud of him
as I can be."
After securing three
reference letters from teachers
and being interviewed by
Bradford High Sohool teacher,
Sue Triest, a liaison for People
to People, he was accepted to
become an ambassador.


Forrest, who first attended
Starke Elementary School,
then was homeschooled for a
year, before enrolling at
Lawtey Community School, is
the first chosen from that latter
school and only the third
student elected from Bradford
County in the organization's
52-year history.
"I'm a little nervous about
the trip, but mostly excited,".
said Forrest. "I'm really
looking forward to eating real
Swiss chocolate and real pizza
in Italy," he said.
But for Forrest, the trip will
be much more than a palate
pleaser.
He will be visiting, among
many other sites in the four
countries, The Eiffel tower, the
Roman Coliseum, the Leaning
Tower of Pisa, the Vatican and
the Sistine Chapel.
In Switzerland he will
explore Zurich, bobsled in the
Alps and, of course, stock up
on that chocolate.
In Austria, aside from the
many sites in Vienna, will be a
somber visit to Mauthausen,

the infamous Nazi
concentration camp.
Forrest will also be earning
college credit on his trip as he
writes comparisons of the
different cultures he
experiences and their native
art.
He and his group will also
be guests of honor as they sit
down to dine with the leaders
of the countries they visit.
Like many 12-year-olds
Forrest is a skateboard
enthusiast, but perhaps unlike
his peers this hobby led him to
want to be an architet.. It
happened as he started to
construct a skateboard ramp
and found that he had an
aptitude and enthusiasm for
building structures.
After he completes his initial
trip abroad, Forrest will have
earned a lifelong membership
to People to People and, if he
so chooses, can join the
organization's Pasport Club,
which will enable him to make
more trips and make him
eligible for up to $100,000 in
yearly scholarships.

RAISE THE
Both homeowners and
real estate agents are best
served when a home sells
quickly for a good price.
There are many steps both
parties can take to achieve
that goal, and a recent trend
is proving its value: whether
the local market is hot or
cool, statistics reveal that a
"Staged" home will sell -
faster and for a higher price.
This service is called
Staging because it's basical-
ly about "theater." A profes-
sional Stager assesses your
home's strongest and weak-
est features, and creates a
series of "scenes" sure to
appeal to your "audience" of
buyers.
There are four major
areas of concern: cleanli-
ness, openness, color, and...
compromise. Cleaning your
home seems obvious, but

CURTAIN!
we're talking about the
White Glove treatment here
- on every surface.
Openness means a decided
lack of clutter as well as
arranging (or removing) fur-
nishings to impart a sense
of space..
The colors in your home
and on its walls also convey
this idea. Dark colors make
a room seem smaller and
light colors make it seem
bigger. You get the idea.
But what about that
"compromise" part? It sim-
ply means that we all under-
stand that lack of time or
budget makes it necessary
to focus on those improve-
ments that will have the
biggest impact, and not
sweat every little detail.
Ask your agent for guidance
and trust his or her instincts.

Indians' lone goal.
On Jan. 10 in Keystone,
Brad Gober helped the Indians
salvage a 2-all tie against Clay

final 13 minutes.
Gober's first goal came off
of a free kick from 24 yards
South. He followed that up with a
penalty kick after Groves was
fouled in the box.
Goalie Tim Frysinger
-injured his hand in this match
when he was kicked
attempting to make a save.

LETTER
Cont. from .page 4B
establish a career service plan
for his employees, so I and
others ask, why does he wait
until he is on the verge of
going out of office? The
answer, as I see it, is nothing
but pure unadulterated rotten
-politics, intended to reward
those who themselves are
political appointees with, of
course, family connections.
There are those who,
because of personal friendship
and family connections,
believe that Bob Milner can do
no wrong. Well they just might
be right. After all in the years
that he has been sheriff, he has
gotten just about everything
that he has ever wanted for the
sheriff's office. He has
doubled the size of the
department, he has almost
doubled the salary of his
employees and has made his
department top heavy with
administrative personnel.
Right or wrong, an outgoing
sheriff has no right to burden
an incoming sheriff with the
political cronies that lie has
appointed over the 16-year
period' that he'has been in
office.
The issue of job security is
very important and should be a
consideration when a person
applies for work, but when a
person takes a job that does not
have it why should he expect
to receive it out of hand?
A former state attorney
general ruled once that a
Florida county sheriff should
be able change his deputies as
often as he changes his socks if
he choses to. The next question
is, will the deputy who is
running for sheriff be keeping
his job while he is out trying to
round up votes?
