Starke
power
outage set
Portions of northwest
Starke will experience a
temporary power outage on
Tuesday, June 17, from 7-11
a.m., as city crews work on
scheduled updates to the
.system.
The--outage will include
the north and south..sides of
Brownlee Road from Dolly's
Restaurant to Faxon Lane.
It will also include T.H.E.
Apartments, all of Thomas
Street and both sides of St.
Clair Street.
June 10 outage
Outages which occurred
in the City of Starke on
STuesday were not all related
to the upgrade project.
According to Starke Project
Manager Ricky Thompson,
a logging company that
: dropped a tree over power
lines caused one outage. A
Malfunctioning transformer
caused another and a
: malfunctioning lightning
a::arrestor caused another.
None of these outages lasted
longer than a few minutes,
said Thompson.
The logging accident did,
however, pull crews off the A
scheduled upgrade on north
U.S. 301. This caused a
delay of about an hour in
completing that project, said
Thompson.

Rally rhetoric heats up sheriffs race


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The temperature was -hot, but the
shots fired between two candidates
for sheriff were hotter.
If the signs in yards, on trucks and
on billboards weren't proof enough,
the back and forth between those
candidates at a rally held in Hampton
on Saturday was certainly evidence
that the local political season is in


full swing.
It started calmly enough, with
candidate for sheriff Randall Zipperer
discussing his 27-year military career,
his master's degree in education and
his tutelage under Sheriff Bob Milner
before urging the crowd to study each
of his opponents closely to find out
what they're really about.
."The office of sheriff is a very
unique office, a very diverse office;
one that requires a high degree of


character and integrity," Zipperer
said.
The people deserve someone with
the highest level of character, integrity
and morals sitting behind the desk of
the most important law enforcement
office in the county, he said.
"You should not-you cannot--
afford to settle for anything else. To
do so is almost criminal," Zipperer
said.
What the public would hear at


the rally from the candidates would
be superficial, he warned. People
need to talk withthe candidates and
"'uierstand the requirements of the
office before casting their vote, he
said. Make sure you select the correct
candidate for the job, he added,
because you are going to have to live
with him for four years.
"Study hard, and make the right

County


audit


largely


positive
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Terry Kite from Purvis, Gray and
Company, the firm that audits the
county's finances, affirmed the county
was in good financial standing at the
end of the 2007-08 fiscal year.
The county's assets exceeded its
liabilities by nearly $60 million.
More than $37 million of that figure
is invested in capital assets (land,
buildings, machinery, equipment and
infrastructure). Unrestricted net assets
available for governmental activities
amounted to $8.5 million, while
restricted assets (restricted for debt
service or other purposes) amounted
.to $13.5 million.
The county's liabilities, or debts,
at the e1nd of the year topped $6.8
million.,The largest component of
that amount is the $2 million loan for
construction of the library, which the
county will pay for through 2013.
General fuild revenue increased by
..nearly $1.05 millionor 13.6 percent,
while general fund expenditures
decreased 3.7 percent, or nearly
$127,000. Excess revenue over
expenditures in the general fund
totaled more than $5.4 million, all
but $262,246 of which was used to
cover costs in other areas, including
road projects and law enforcement
operations.
Other funds decreased their
balance, including transportation and
fines and forfeitures. The combined
ending fund balance of all of the
county's reserved and unreserved
fund balances, however, was more
.than $19.65 million.
The lack of personnel to
appropriately segregate financial
duties was again noted as a material
weakness.
It was also noted that a single

Starke may have new garbage contractor


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Starke ,has been surprised by
the announcement that its garbage
contractor, Waste Management, is
selling off assets and assigning its
contract to a third party.
A letter to Mayor Travis Woods
indicates that Waste Management
entered into an asset sale agreement
with EWS Central Florida Hauling.
At closing, Waste Management plans
assign all of its rights and obligations


under the existing service contract
with the city to EWS.
The sale apparently applies to other
areas in the region served by.Waste
Management as well.
Starke was asked to countersign
the letter, approving the assignment
of rights and obligations to EWS, and
furthermore told that its acceptance
would constitute the city's agreement
that the assignment would not
constitute a breach of event of default
under the contract.


In a meeting with Waste
Management, Woods said their
representatives attempted to reassure
the city that the terms of the contract
would be honored. However, on the
advice of its attorney, the city is
insisting on a sit down meeting with
EWS prior to countersigning the
notice.
In addition, City Attorney Terry
Brown recommended that EWS also
be asked to execute an agreement
requiring the new contractor to honor
the terms of the existing contract for


service.
While little is known of the new
contractor on the city's end, Waste
Management's Web site contains a
.page on acquisition and divestiture
that encourages interested parties, to
make offers to purchase its assets.
Starke extended its contract with
Waste Management last year in spite
of a history of service issues because
a call for proposals did not produce a
cheaper offer and reviving the city's
own collection service was cost
prohibitive.


Creek grant leads to new recreation ideas


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
A grant sought by Paul Still of the
Bradford Soil and Water Conservation
District to remove invasive plants
along western Alligator Creek has
been awarded, but it has also led
to ideas for a multiphase project to
create educational and recreational
opportunities in that area.
Jim DeValerio and Kim Skidmore
representing the Starke Tree Board
told the city commission they hope


to use Still's grant as an in-kind
contribution for other grant
applications to fund an arboretum,
nature park and trail long the creek.
The arboretum, a botanical garden
devoted to trees, would be developed
at a small wooded area in the
southwest corner of the recreation
park on Edwards Road. This first
phase would remove invasive,
noninvasive and unwanted species
from the site as part of the invasive
plant grant project. Litter and trash
would also be removed and the soil


topography would be leveled or
reshaped to match certain species.
Footpaths through the arboretum
would be planned and constructed,
and desirable specimens, would- be-- --
planted alongside the existing plants
and trees. The specimens would
be identified and labeled. Trees
and shrubs would also be planted
between and around playing fields
and playgrounds at the park.
The arboretum would provide a
new and educational attraction to
Edwards Road park, DeValerio said.


Phase two would create the nature
park in.the area between Alligator
Creek and Tractor Supply. Again,
invasive plants would be removed,
and-a-ground level walking path
would be developed with access from
the Tractor Supply parking lot.
Boardwalks would be constructed
to travel over wet areas, and picnic
tables would be installed. Trees and
plants would again be labeled.
The park would provide an area
for nature recreation. In addition

i Etiquette camp enrolling now


They'll not fling hot dogs and
marshmallows at this summer
camp.
This summer, Starke-area
parents again have a decidedly
more-dignified choice when
it comes to selecting summer
enrichment for children and
teens. The Florida Academy
of Etiquette and Protocol is
enrolling students,ages 5 to 17,
in Summer Etiquette Camp.
The program is scheduled
for June 28-Aug.l at the Starke


Woman's Club.
"This isn't just charm school
for girls," says academy founder
and director Robin Steele, a
certified etiquette instructor.
"We teach boys and girls the
most current manners for
today's world. Everyone likes
to be treated with respect and
courtesy. Polite children simply
stand out. Their manners make
them shine. Politeness pays
off.
"Not only do our campers


experience a boost in self-
esteem and confidence, but
they learn other lifelong skills,
like self-control and discipline.
These are the qualities that set
apart the leaders of today and
tomorrow!"
But is it fun?
"Absolutely!" Steele
says. "We don't believe in:.

Re: Electric Peak Demand Conservation
As the city of Starke begins the final week
of the four kilovolt to 13.2 kilovolt electric
distribution, we would like to thank everyone
for their patience during this project. Once
completed, this will reduce the city of Starke's
line loss from the present 14 percent to less than
nine percent. This translates into huge savings
for the city as well as our customers.
As we move forward we will continue to seek
new ways to reduce electric cost and electric
usage. One way everyone can begin to help is
during electric peak demand time. Summer time


peak demand is 3-6 p.m. and winter time peak
demand 7-10 a.m. During these hours please
avoid using electricity as much as possible. Shut
off air conditioning units, heating units, any
appliances like dishwashers, pool pumps, hot
water heaters, and all lighting that is not needed
during these peak hours.
This will lower our electric usage during peak
demand time and will result in lower costs for
the city and savings for the customer. Please feel
free to contact city hall (904) 964-5027 if you
have any questions concerning this matter.
Starke Project Manager,
Ricky Thompson

choice,".Zipperer said.
Mike Juliano was up next,
discussing his 25-year career
with: .the Florida Highway
Patrol, Thirteen of those years
were in, supervisory positions,
spoletilmes overseeing as many
,as: 1.1,;counties at a time. When
,offered,:the opportunity to
manage the subdistrict covering
Bradford, Baker and Union
:counties .in 1997, he said he
jumped at the chance.
Juliano retired at the rank of
captain in 2002.
He described himself
as a "100-percent fiscal
conservative."
"I believe in protecting your
tax money, and I also believe
you have a right to know how
your tax money is being spent in
that department," Juliano said,
adding that he also believes in
the sheriff's accountability as a
servant of the people.
In addition to daily
'accessibility, Juliano said he
intends to have quarterly public
meetings as sheriff to report
on his work and answer the
questions of his constituents.
We're all in this together, he
said, which is why he believes
in input as well as cooperation
between local agencies. He said
he's not about getting the credit,
he's about getting the job done
and working together to make
tat.happen- ..- ...
"That's my philosophy, and
I believe it sincerely," Juliano
said.

And then, after David Barnes
introduced himself as "the
people's candidate for sheriff,"
the fireworks began.
"Now I could spend my
time up here today talking to
you and telling you that as a
lifelong law man, that I trained
Wyatt Earp and Matt Dillon,
and together we conquered the
Wild West; but I think you'll
hear enough about that in the
next presentation," Barnes
said, a clear reference to Starke
Police Chief Gordon Smith,
who was next on the agenda
to speak. .
Barnes said he wanted to
talk about something more
important: the citizens of
Bradford County. As he speaks
with residents of the county,
he said one message keeps
,p;esentipg itself.
"The folks in this county
have lost'their trust and faith
in law enforcement, especially
inside the city limits of Starke,"
Barnes said. "For so many
years, those in need who have
turned to law enforcement for
help have been told 'There's
nothing we can do.' When.
they've asked about the ever-
growing drug problem, they've
been told, 'We're doing all we
can.'
It's a common excuse to say
this is a poor county and there
aren't resources to do more,
Barnes said. He said .with-the
help' of the public, he would
make a difference as sheriff and
eliminate the excuse that there's
nothing more the sheriff's office
can do to address a problem.
"There is always something
that we can do," Barnes said,
adding that he would restore
the public's trust in law
enforcement through strong
leadership and high moral and
ethical standards.

Barnes ask ed ifsenior-itizens
s.fiiould live in fear, kids should
be allowed to fall victim tothe
lure of drugs and if the message
sent through law enforcement's
,inaction should be that crime
pays. He said the county would
have to look. for ways to do
more with less, be committed
to success regardless of the
obstacles and make criminals
foot the bill through forfeitures
and seizures.
After discussing a crackdown
on the county's drug problem
and those who'profit from it,
Barnes said voters had the
opportunity this year to change
the history of the county, but
not by voting for more of the
same.
"Gordon Smith has been the
chief of police of Starke for
seven years. If he was going
to do something spectacular,
he .would have already done
it," said Barnes, to a chorus of
cheers from his supporters. "He
will run the county the same
way he's run the city because
that's all he knows."
Barnes launched into a
criticism of the most recent
crime statistics to come out of


the city as reported through
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement. They show a
nearly 40-percent increase in
the crime rate in the city in
2007 and a drop in the number
of crimes solved from 80.4
percent to 56.6 percent.
"Now you can settle for that,
or you can choose a leader who's
committed to excellence,"
Barnes said, "Allowing nearly
half the crimes in this county to


go unsolved is not acceptable
to me."
Barnes said he's a working
man, not a politician, with
the leadership abilities and
experience needed to make a
difference in the county that's
been his home for 38 years.
"I don't want to trick you
into voting for me; I want you
to believe in me, because when
you believe in something,
you're willing to put your time
and energy into it. 1 can make
a difference, but only with
your help," Barnes said, asking
voters to cast their vote for a
better way of doing things.
Then Smith had his turn at
the podium and at Barnes.
"Well, I'm not sure if it's
Wyatt Earp or Doc Holliday,
but I'm here," Smith said to
cheers and applause from his
own camp.
"See, there are some
misconceptions," he continued.
"When you tell a story about a
little thing, you never tell the
truth about a big thing."
Smith had prepared a
statement to read, but he went
off script to address Barnes'
remarks.
"I had a letter prepared but
sometimes you have to speak
from the heart," Smith said.
"There's not a candidate in
this race who has walked more
streets or served more time in
Bradford County than Gordon
Smith." ...
- Smith had some critical
words of his own, chastising
Barnes for working for a law
enforcement agency outside of
the county. Addressing Barnes
directly, he proclaimed, "If you
cared about this county and you
wanted to fight drugs, you'd be
here fighting them."
He praised the police
department for the national and
state awards it has won for its
law enforcement efforts, and
tried to discredit talk of a crime
rate increase by attributing
most of the increase to
shoplifting. Prior to last year's
increase, there were 10 years
of diminishing crime rates, he
said. He defended the city's
crime clearance rate as well,
pointing out that Clay County
and others can't compete with
Starke's record of solving
crimes.
"You talk about what you
can do, but-you're not doing
anything in the county you
come from," Smith said to
Barnies." ''Our'c6aleafhce rate is
much higher than the area you
come from consistently. The
area you come from, the last
three or four years, the crime's
increased.every year."
He also brought out
statistics that aren't included


in the Uniform Crime Report,
comparing the average number
of drug arrests over the past
three years between the police
department and the sheriff's
office. The sheriff's office
averaged 22 drug arrests a year,
while the city's average is 170,
he said.
"I'm here to speak the truth,
and that's all you'll get out of
Gordon Smith," he said. "I run
a clean race, but I understand
when you're the horse out
front, everybody's aiming for
you. That's OK, I'm thick
skinned. I grew up red-headed
and freckled; I learned how to
take it a long time ago."

SWhile other candidates say
they're seeking an opportunity
to be sheriff, Smith said it
wasn't an opportunity for him,
but an obligation to the citizens
of Bradford County.
Not all of Smith's remarks
were reserved for Barnes or
his other opponents. Back on
script, he criticized the current
office holder as well.
"It's been 16 years since
the citizens of this county will
finally get to elect a sheriff,"
Smith said. "Now we've had
some fine politicians-I'll
give credit where it's due-but
now it's time for a sheriff in
Bradford County."
Unlike ,the other candidates
in the race, Smith said he is
the only one who has been
responsible for an agency's
budget.
"There's not another city that
runs as economically as tfe ciTty
of Starke," Smith said, also
mentioning his department's
low turnover rate.

Smith said his campaign isn't
about him, but about making
things better, at the sheriff's
office and in Bradford County.
"In the end, it doesn't really
matter if you're Democrat or
Republican or Independent in
this race. It is about being a
citizen of Bradford County and
receiving the services to which
you are entitled," he said.
Smith said no other candidate
has the law enforcement
experience he has, and
while he said he respects the
military service of some of
the other candidates, there's a
difference.
"The military experience is
great, but as the sheriff you
serve the citizens, you serve
then community of -Bradford
County. We're not soldiers, of
.war, we're keeper of pe.acq.
That's the difference," he said.
The remarks of the sheriff's
candidates came at the end
of a long list of speakers that
comprised candidates for
federal, state and county offices,

Help dad quit
smoking for
Fathers Day
This coming Sunday, June
15, is Fathers Day. It's a time
when dad receives gifts such as
lawn mowers or tools from the
kids and wife.
However, Fathers Day is the
perfect time for dads to focus
on their health. Health tips are:
Eating right, getting plenty of
exercise and, most importantly
for those that use tobacco
products, quitting.
There are many benefits to
quitting cigarettes or using spit
tobacco. Dads who smoke two
packs, a day could save more
than $3,000 dollars a year by
quitting this deadly habit.
Keep in mind this isn't done
over night. The average smoker
quits seven times before he is
successful.

may begin to erect political
signage. This summer, there
will be visual reminders
everywhere as evidence of who
will be courting your vote this
fall.
However, if not for a Political
Sign Ordinance, our landscape
may have been filled with
political signs for months now.
The Bradford County Board
of County Comnmissioners
adopted the ordinance some
14 years ago. In the past,
local campaigns traditionally
kicked off around the time
when candidates turned in their
qualifying papenvrwork in June
or July.
Starting in the early
90s, campaigns began to be
launched earlier and earlier
on the calendar. In 1992, for
example, there were political
signs out as early as January
regarding elections that were
still eight to 10 months away.
Now, candidates sign pledges
that they will not erect political
signage (signs on vehicles are
exempt) until 60 days prior to
the primary election. Signage at
special events, such as the fair
or at rallies are not considered
to be in violation.
"Candidates generally
appreciate the ordinance." said
Bradford Elections Supervisor
Terry Vaughan, "because it
puts all of them on an even
playing field. Citizens also tend
to appreciate the fact that they
don't have to look at political
signs for nearly a year prior to
election day."
Vaughan said- that without
the ordinance, "sign wars"
would easily ensue. "Once one
candidate puts up the first sign,
supporters of another candidate
are asking him or her why their
signs are not out. Pretty soon,
signs would be everywhere
way earlier than necessary."
The ordinance does not come
without its headaches and
shortfalls.
There is no real mechanism
to enforce the ordinance if
someone decides not to abide
by the stipulations. If someone
places a sign on private property
for example, there is little that
can be 'done. And there is no
agency in place to really police
alleged violations.
"We emphasize to our
candidates that they must
voluntarily comply for the

ordinance to work" Vaughan
added. "It is not so much an
ordinance as it is a pledge.
In fact, we ask them to sign
a pledge that they will not
erect signage earlier than 60
days prior to the primary. It is
incumbent on the candidates
to not even distribute signage
prior to June 27." Vaughan
said that by and large, local
candidates have been great to
work with and understanding of
the reason behind the pledge.


Firewise

principals can

protect your

home
Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging state
residents to take action around
their homes to prevent wildfire
damage.
"There are simple 'Firewise'
principles that everyone can
put into practice immediately
with little or no cost," Bronson
said.
Fire researchers have
demonstrated that even 30 feet
of defensible space around a
home can greatly decrease the
probability of structure damage
or loss due to a wildfire.
Little things often cause a
structure to ignite rather than the
major flame front itself. Every
homeowner is urged to review
the National Fire Protection
Association's recommended
standards for people who live
in or near the wildland areas.
The standards can be found
online at www.nfpa.org.
There are three areas around
a home that require attention:
-Roof and gutters. Remove
all dead leaves, pine needles,
small twigs and palm fronds--
anything that can ignite easily
by falling embers.
-Sides of the home.
Remove dead vegetation and
any combustibles such as
firewood piles from the sides
of the. home.
-Area within 30 feet
of the home. Remove dead
vegetation, keep grass cut and
watered, remove apy vines
stretching from the wildland
to the home or into trees, and
prune dead limbs from trees
and bushes.

the Florida Division of Forestry


Web site at www.fl-dof.com.

FloridaWorks expands services despite cuts


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
FloridaWorks Chairman Ken
McGurn, along with Angela
Pate, the board's director,
discussed how much the
organization's record of service
in the region had improved over
the past couple of years.
McGurn said, for a time, as
available funding for workforce
programs diminished, so did
the number of individuals
FloridaWorks was serving. But
that has changed. FloridaWorks
decided to do something
different, he said, and that was
get the business community
involved.
"As soon as we did, our
numbers changed and we
began serving more and more
people," McGurn said.
At first, they thought it might
be a fluke, he admitted, but in
fact the numbers shot up again,
and they continue to rise. In
fact, based on a projection of
data collected earlier this year,
FloridaWorks expects to serve
nearly 26,000 individuals in
the region by the end of its
2007-08 year.
That's twice the number
served just two years before and
the achievement comes even as
funding has hit its lowest levels
yet.
"We have just increased
Sthe number of people we're
serving," McGurn said. "Those
are people looking for jobs,
looking to better themselves,
get better jobs, get training."

McGurn credited the
chamber of commerce, saying
what a huge difference staff had
made in the numbers. Among
the chamber's contributions
are job fairs co-hosted by the
chamber and FloridaWorks,
one that drew 150 job seekers
who were able to meet with
15 employers. There were
also individual job fairs held
for employers, including
the Florida Department of

and Waldo Travel Center.

events like the regular
President's Breakfasts, and
FloridaWorks has further been
able to raise its profile in the
community by sponsoring
events like the Starke Bike Fest
and the Strawberry Festival.
The job fairs didn't stop with
the adults. The most recent saw
70 graduating seniors from
Bradford and Union counties
participate in a two-day
workshop, where they learned
-interview skills and resume
preparation before meeting
with 11 employers. According
to FloridaWorks, several job
pairings were made.

A spring break computer
camp taught software skills to
10 high school students, who
went home with the laptop
computers and printers they
used during the workshop. Ten
other students traveled to Epcot
to learn about technology and
world cultures, and 35 received
community employment

subsidizing internships for
50 high schoolers to provide
summer employment.

another. Luckily, CISTO has
provided more than 10,000
rides so far this.fiscal cycle to
Bradford County residents who
needed transportation to work,
training or interviews. The
board of county commissioners
helped FloridaWorks purchase
a vehicle, and Pate thanked the
board for its contribution.
"We had one of our passenger
vans go out, and you were very
helpful in helping us procure a
new one at a better rate than we
could have afforded otherwise,"
Pate said.
One hundred thirty-one
clients depend on CISTO for
rides, so FloridaWorks funds
that program and has purchased
gas cards that are helping 104
other low-income clients who
use the needed support to drive
their own vehicles to work.
And because they were
able to get to work because
of the transportation assistance
provided, six clients were able
to purchase their own vehicles
this, year. FloridaWorks also
funded the purchase of a vehicle
that was given to a family as
part of the Dignity Project.
Additionally, Pate said
FloridaWorks has assisted
CISTO in applying for a grant
from the Florida Department
of Transportation that could
purchase two vehicles and
cover a large portion of the
program's administrative
budget. If that happens, hours
can be expanded to assist
clients who work evening and
weekend shifts.

FloridaWorks' goal is to draw

to doing that is.showing them

Clearly the program has

Since mid-April, there
have been 145 reported cases
of salmonellosis caused
by Salmonella Saintpaul
nationwide, including at least


23 hospital/ nations. States
reporting illnesses linked
to the outbreak include:
Arizona, California, Colorado.
Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois,
Indiana, Kansas, New Mexico,
Oklahoma. Oregon, Texas,
Utah, Virginia, Washington,
and Wisconsin. Salmonella
Saintpaul is an uncommon type
of Salmonella.
Salmonella can cause serious
and sometimes fatal infections
particularly in young children;
frail or elderly people, and
those with weakened immune
systems.
Healthy persons often
experience fever, diarrhea
(which may be bloody), nausea,
vomiting, and abdominal
pain. In rare circumstances,
the organism can get into the
bloodstream and produce more
severe illnesses.
Consumers who have


recently eaten raw tomatoes or
foods containing raw tomatoes
and are experiencing any of
these symptoms should contact
their health care provider. All
Salmonella infections should
be reported to state or local
health authorities.
FDA recognizes that the
source of the contaminated
tomatoes may be limited to
a single grower or packer
or tomatoes from a specific
geographic area.' FDA also
recognizes that there are many
tomato crops across the country
and in foreign countries that
will be ready for harvest or will
become ready in the coming
months.
In order to ensure that
consumers can continue .to
enjoy tomatoes that are safe to
eat, FDA is working diligently
with the states, the Centers
for Disease Control and


Prevention, the Indian Health
Service, and various food
industry trade associations to
quickly determine the source
of the tomatoes associated with
the outbreak.
FDA is taking these actions
while the agency continues to-
investigate this outbreak with
state and federal partners. Such
actions are a key component
of FDA's Food Protection
Plan, a scientific and risk-
based approach to strengthen
and protect the nation's food
supply.
FDA will continue to issue
updates as more specific
information becomes available.

Starke turns to credit to pay bills


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

It's getting harder and harder
for some to pay the bills,and the
city of Starke is no exception.
' With dwindling funds
available to meet monthly
costs, the city commission has
taken out a $700,000 line of
credit with Capital City Bank
good for six months to help
meet its ongoing obligations.

According to City Clerk
Linda Johns, funds available
to pay the bills have fallen
below $1 million, which she
said is the amount of available
money it is recommended
local governments have on
hand. She said that makes her

Recycling

bin placed in

Hampton
There is now a newspaper-
only recycling bin located


uncomfortable and the line of
credit necessary.
Money has been going
out faster than it's coming
in. Meanwhile, the city has
obligations to meet. Johns said
one payroll cycle alone costs
the city $300,000.
The reason for the financial
bind, she said, is the electric
conversion project. Originally
estimated to cost $1.75 million,
the cost had climbed to $2.73
million by February 2007. By
the time it's completed, Johns
expects the final cost to exceed
$3 million, only $2 million of
which was covered by a loan
taken out in July 2007.

While the project may have
drained the budget, the city is


behind the Hampton City Hall
for all who wish to recycle their
newspapers, magazines, phone
books and office papers.
Please feel free to use the
bin as often as you need to and
help the city do its part to keep
America green. There is no
limit on the number of times
per month you can place your
papers in the bin.

for middle

grades
According to the Florida
Department of Education's
middle grades reform policy, all
students in grades six through

successfully pass all language
arts, math, science and social
studies courses each year in
order to promote to the high

AUDIT:
Continued from p. 1A

employee is preparing and
entering most journal entries
into the accounting system
without review and approval
by another employee.
Another audit finding related
to EMS involved the amount of
outstanding billings that have
accumulated. As of Sept. 30,
2007, the accounts receivable
balance was more than $3
million, and $1.4 million of
that balance was more than two
years old. A list of outstanding
balances had not been submitted
to the commission for further
collection efforts or write-off
approval.
In response to the finding,
County Clerk Ray Norman
said the county would develop
a system to determine which,
accounts need to be written off
on a quarterly basis and explore
options to have a collection
agency to assist in collecting
delinquent accounts.
During the meeting, a list
of 628 delinquent billings for
interfacility transport were
submitted to the commission
for write-off approval. Most
had not been transported since
2001, some addresses were no
longer accurate and some of the
individuals were deceased.
Norman also said the
county will retain services
of an actuary to calculate the
county's liability related to
postemployment benefits such
as postemployment health
insurance. Governments must
begin reporting that information
in their-audits no later than
-Sept. 30, 2009.
Boat ramp,
communications
projects discussed
In other business, the
commission gave County
Manager Brad Carter authority
tosubmitapplicationsforgrants,
funding from which would be
used to construct floating docks
at some of the county's boat
ramps. Designated sites for
possible improvements include
Little Lake Santa Fe. Hampton
Lake and Crosby Lake.
The commission also gave
approval to purchase nearly
$76.000 in fiber optic cable and
other equipment to establish a
communications ring between
the 911 emergency call center,
Starke Police Department and
Starke Fire Rescue.
According to EMS Director
Nelson Green, the ring will
benefit those agencies by
supplying a greater bandwidth
for the transfer of larger files
and allow the police department
to serve as a secondary call
center should an ,,.iir .r.,.i
ever make that necessary,
The project is being paid
for with Intergovcrnmcntal
Communication Funds and 911
grant revenue,


The middle grades reform
policy applies to this year's

Using games and humor,
Steele guides her students to
etiquette excellence.
Take the dreaded dining
demons. These days, few
among us have the confidence
and training to avoid frantic
mental gymnastics in an effort
to remember which utensil is
proper for each course at a
formal table. But after camp,
parents can simply steal a
glance at their children, who
will be comfortable navigating
anything from finger bowls
to an. array of forks. Among
other topics, etiquette campers
also build confidence and
proficiency in:
Greetings and handshakes.
SConversational skills.
Showing appreciation and
being thankful.
SShowing patriotic pride.
Honoring and obeying

"Of course, everybody has
those students along with the
ones who make teaching a
pleasure," said Verunac.
Overall however, .Verunac
said he was pleased with his
successes over the school year.
He pointed with special
pride to his "Planet for Sale"
project, still on display in the
library, in which he had his
students play the role of real

creative advertising posters, the
assets, i.e., the scientific facts,--
pertaiiiiing to whtherher planet

trying to sell.
For example, Saturn was

it has "more than 46 moons."

Leaving behind a lasting legacy


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford High School choral
director Don Hardy's 30-year
career \\ill come to an end this
year, but many of his students
\ill continue to sing his
praises after he leaves the
school behind.
iThroughout his career,
iHardy has helped students
develop a better understanding
.of music and helped many
discover they have a true talent
When it comes to music. He
has inspired students to pursue
music after graduating from
o high school.
Yet Hardy's influence is not
confined to music, judging by
comments made by current and
former students. Aaron
Brannon said Hardy has taught
.him many things about life,
including the importance of
.maintaining a sense of humor
and a positive outlook. Mark
Zelnar said, "Mr. Hardy is the
best teacher at BHS, hands
.down. I have learned more
about music and even life in
'his class, more so than in any
other class. He pushes you and
'helps you to become a better
-student and person."
Several former students
-created a group on Facebook
entitled, "Don Hardy
Remarkably Changed My
,ife." On the group page,
:Ryan Lee posted the following
comment : "Mr. Hardy has
helped me in life more than he
could he ever know. Mr.
,Hardy looked beyond my 'high
,school awkwardness' and saw
!ime as a person. Mr. Hardy
.was, among other things, a
teacher, philosopher, father
figure, and friend. Mr. Hardy
taught me about applying
one's inner passions to make a
difference. "
i. Hardy, upon reading things
ibis former and current students
jvrote about him, admitted he
.vas humbled. Yet is it any
avonder so many are willing to
say nice things about him?
iHardy said it has been his
students, in a sense, who have
reallyy been his employers these
past 30 years.
i "I know my paycheck is
yritten by the school board
fnd I work for the school
board, but, really, I work for
ihe students," Hardy-said.

only teach for so many years,
but to touch the lives of so
many students. Hardy's
personal magnetism, along
with. his heart, faith and
insistence on excellence have
all contributed to a special
person who can never be
replaced in the school system,
McRae said.
"Very few teachers have the
ability to reach children on
such a close, emotional level
that creates an environment to
exceed expectations," McRae
said.
McRae is just one of several
people Hardy can thank for the
30 years he spent teaching in
Bradford County.

'Young and naive'
teacher starts long
career in Bradford
Many people can look back
upon their childhoods and
think of people who helped
shape their lives. Hardy .said,:
anything he has accomplished&
iri music is because of two
people: Mona Canova, whom
he had as a music teacher in
elementary school, and Bill
George, who joined Hardy's
church as music minister when
Hardy was a teenager.
Hardy was able to get
directing experience under
George. Hardy said his
musical voice was nurtured
andd developed by George.
"No one has influenced me
like he h;'." Hardy said. "He
'N his bfen the towering uMentor
of my musical life. To be a
tenth of what he is would be a
great accomplishment. I revere


Don Hardy
served as the
choral director
at Bradford
High School for
30 years. Some
of his career
highlights
include six
straight
superior ratings
during state
competition in
1995.


him and adore him as a man of
integrity."
Hardy, though he had never


- *.1'


been in a high school choral
program, gained valuable
experience under both George
and Canova. He would go on
to attend the school of music at
the University of Florida with
his friend, McRae. McRae,
who had already graduated
from UF with a degree in
history, finished the program
ahead of Hardy and landed the
job as BHS choral director.
McRae, however, was
eventually contacted by Harry
Hatcher III, the current
superintendent of schools in
Bradford County, about taking
on the position of assistant
manager at a new restaurant
that was going to open in
Starke-Western Steer Family
Steakhouse.
McRae called Hardy, who
was living in Gainesville, and
asked him if he was interested
in the position at BHS. Thus,

Recreation growth leaves A.. @5


director feeling blessed ,.


Y .,.CLIFF SMNFLLEYY
""l, wgrap/ Si f ',f ).rih'r
b"'::' Slc: hasl seen great change
( since she started the job, and
great change is still in store.
Soinceimnes, Alica;
"M gMill ani the citl of Starke's
V rL ,r'ti Iliinehiiyo herself. It feels like a
.;dra uriiM.;.
Yet McMillian, x\\ho has
been on lhe joh for a little
more than li\e \cars, kno\\.s
it's no dream. She gives credit
to (od for opening doors that
she couldn't on her o\\ n.
"Evecr thing I have asked
for, he has ans\\ered,"
McMillian said.
McMillian has seen the Babe
Ruth baseball and softball
program grow and the addition
of two new ball fields and a
skateboard park at the Ed\\ards
Road Complex. Now she can
look toward the future as the
recreation department will get
a new facility and a soccer/flag
football field.
"I do believe the best is yet
to- come," McMillian said.
"My goal is to see this


department as one of the
sho\\ cases for north Florida."
McMillian sat in her ne\\
office as she reminisced about
her lime as recreation director.
The department's main
facility which \\as located in
the old armor\ on IU.S. 301
across from Bradford High
School, has been closed. The
department is currently
operating out of Starke's city
hall, which h is a familiar place
for McMillian. She w\as
working g as the city of Starke's
finance director prior to
applying for her current job.
"I'm on the opposite end (of
the building now), though,"
McMillian said. "When I left
in 2003, 1 never could've
thought I'd come back to city
hall. You .never know what
God has planned for us."
The recreation department
will continue to operate out of
city hall until a new multi-use
facility is completed on
Edwards Road. That building
willf feature a gymnasium and
various rooms for activities
such as karate, dance, exercise,


arts and crafts, music and
ceramics.
Plans are still being revised
for the facility (the project had
to be scaled back due to its
cost), but McMillian said she
has been told she could
possibly anticipate having the
facility within a year's time.
"I've got faith that we're
going to get that building, and
it will have everything in it
that we need," McMillian said.
Meanwhile, things are
carrying on as usual for the
department. The only program
affected by the move from the
armory is ceramics (classes
have been suspended at this
time). The department is
preparing for its annual
summer camp, which will be
held at the Bradford County
Fairgrounds for the second
straight year.
McMillian said ha\ ing the
camp at the fairgrounds last
year worked out well. Children
are divided into age groups
and remain in those groups

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


'Thanks for
.the photo
: Dear Editor:
. Thank you for printing the
picture of the Class of 1958
_-reunion. -
We who came from out of
,;:town owe so much to local
::'schoolmates who provided
'"great hospitality and planned a
'series of pleasant events that
made our 50th anniversary a
wonderful experience.
We enjoyed out happy days
Then and now.

Volunteers
needed!
Dear Editor:
-The FCAT scores reflect a-
Yot'.6f hard work on the part of
the students, the teachers, and
all of those parents and
homework helpers.
Now that summer vacation
is here, it's time for the
community to step up and help
the students keep reading
during the' summer and to
show them that reading can be
fun, especially when it's


shared.
We still have space for
second and third graders who
would like to join our Flying
Bats! program, .starting
Wednesday, June 18, and
continuing each Wednesday
through July 16. The program
will be held from 2 p.m. at the
Stump Building on Pratt Street
in Starke and will end at 3 p.m.
in the meeting room at the
Bradford County Public
Library next door.
For this program to be
successful we need volunteers.
Volunteers will use the
materials from the' Teen
Trendsetters Reading Mentors
but middle schoolers and
adults make great' reading
volunteers too. Our pre-
program training session was
June 11 but it's not too late to
volunteer.
I will be glad to meet with
any potential volunteers and go
over the materials.
If we want.our Bradford kids
to continue their hard-earned
successes and to reach out to
those who could benefit from a
little extra attention, we need
to show our support.

In Loving Memory
of
Earl Wayne Murray Sr.
March 18, 195.1 -June 17, 2002
Fifty-one years was such a
short time to share all the love
he had to give. He was a good
son and wonderful father and a
true friend to many. He, would
have given you the shirt off his
back if you needed it, he went
the extra mile to help you.
He was a boat captain at a
resort in south Florida where he
enjoyed his work as much as he
enjoyed the great outdoors. He
was a giving and loving person
and anyone who ever knew
him, misses him.
Walk the path slowly, son, so
that we might, catch up with
you later.
We all love and miss you.
Your mother, sister and children


In Loving Memory
of
Charles A. Jenkins,
USN Retired
June 9, 1909 January 28,1999
When I left you its only for a
while
Please do not grieve and shed
wild tears
and hug your sorrow to you
through the years,
But stay brave with a gallant
smile.
And for my sake and in my
name,
Live on and do all things the
same.
Feed not on the loneliness or
empty days,
But fill each waking hour in
useful ways.
Reach out your hand in
comfort and in cheer
And I in turn will comfort you
and hold you near.
And never, never be afraid to
die
For I am waiting for you in the
sky.
Loving you and still missing you.
Your'daughter Janice

GROWTH
Continued from page 4B

throughout the I I-hour day.
(The camp runs from 7 a.m.
until 6 p.m. on Mondays
through Fridays.) Children
participate in various activities
and enjoy lunch free of charge,
courtesy of the Bradford
County School District.
The department also offered
something new at last year's,
camp-tutoring services,-
which will be offered again
this year.
The former Pratt Street
center used to be the hub of the
summer program, but
McMillian, after becoming
recreation director, expanded
the program so that more
children could attend. That
was accomplished by having
activities at the armory and
Reno center.
Last year, approximately
248 children participated in the
summer camp. Registration
has been slow this year, but
McMillian is confident more
parents will sign their children
up as the first day (Monday,
June 16) of the eight week-
camp approaches. As she sees
it, the summer program
provides a safe environment
for children.
"I've been a mother,"
McMillian said. "I know how
important it is to be able to go
to work and feel like your
child is in a secure place."
The summer camp is not the
only program of the
department's to experience
growth. McMillian said when
she became recreation director,
there were approximately 12
Babe Ruth baseball teams and
no girls' softball teams
throughout the county. Now,
there are 27 baseball and
softball teams, including six
girls' teams,
"We have the most teams in
the district-even more than
Gainesville," McMillian said.
Another exciting aspect
surrounding the Babe Ruth
program is the fact the District
6 minor league and major
league all-stars will play their
tournaments at the Edwards
Road Complex June 19-20.

going to .be hosting the minor
and major tournaments,"
McMillian said. "There are
approximately 21 teams that
are going to be involved.
According to our district
commissioner, we are going to
have the biggest district
tournament."
The Babe Ruth program
benefited from the addition of
two new fields at the Edwards
Road Complex. Another type
of field will eventually be
added for -the recreation
department's use-a field
designed for soccer and flag
football. The city of Starke
was awarded a grant for the
project, but a location must
still be found for the field.
McMillian is excited about
this particular field and how it
Swill ultimately benefit the
Bradford High School girls'
soccer program.
"We consider ourselves a
feeder program (for the high
school)," McMillian said. In
fact, Bradford High School
soccer coach Ruben Uribe
coached the sport for the
recreation department this past
fall.
As McMillian continues to
look into the future, she wants
to reopen the Reno center,
which was closed so safety
issues could be addressed, and
see a swimming pool
constructed.
"I think if we incorporate a
pool within the recreation
department, at that point we
will be complete," McMillian
said.

June 12, 2008 TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR--B-SECTION Page 9B


HARDY
Continued from page 3B

in 1978. Hard) began working
as choral director of both
Bradl'ord : Hilgh School and
Bradford Middle School.
It did not take long for
McRae to find out the
restaurant business was inot for
him. He returned to education,
but if he had never left, it
could've been him in Hard)'s
position right no\w.
Ho\\ever, McRae said that
was not the way things were
supposed to work out.
"God intended for Don to be
in that job, not me," McRae
said.
Hardy, during his first five
years in Bradford County,
taught middle school chorus in
the mornings and high school
chorus in the afternoons. At
Bradford Middle School, he
taught in a room that was
adjacent to the gymnasium.
Hardy described the situation
as "horrendous" because the
noises from the gym could be
heard in his room.
"I remember that very first
morning," Hardy' said. "1 was
very young and naive, just glad
to have a job. If I were to walk
in that space today, I would
say, 'You've got to be
kidding,' but I didn't have that
attitude back then. It was a
job."
The conditions eventually
improved, as Hardy moved
into a portable building that
served as the school's
band/chorus room.
At the high school, Hardy
worked in a building that was
built in 1956. He said it
included an "old, beat-up up-
right piano that was a surplus
military piano."
"A lot of the keys had the
ivory burned off where players
had laid a cigarette-down while
they played," Hardy said. "It
was in horrible condition."
Hardy made an appeal to the
school board to purchase a
new piano. What ended up
happening, to his recollection,
was that the school board
agreed to pay half the cost.


BHS camp

cancelled, UC

-camp still on
A youth football camp at
Bradford High School thatwas
scheduled for Saturday, June
21, has been cancelled.
Bradford head football
coach Steve Hoard said there
was not enough response to the
camp, which would have been
offered to third- through
eighth-graders. He' plans to
offer the camp next year.
Union County head football
coach Andrew Zow will be
hosting a youth camp on
Thursday, June .19. For more
information on this camp,


"I remember the total price
was $8,000 for a grand piano,
which today costs $60,000,"
Hardy said. "That's how1 long
ago it was since I started
teaching ."
Eventually, the high school
choral program got a new
facility, which Hardy helped
design in the 1990s along with
architect Spyros Drivas. He is
very proud of the facility,
which includes three practice
rooms.
"This is one of..the finest
choral rooms any high school
could ever have, and it's right
next to a 40-foot proscenium
stage that high schools just
don't have," Hardy said.
"Nobody builds what we have
here anymore."
Hardy had a chance to leave
for another job before that
facility became a reality. He
\\,as offered a job in Clay
County in 1993. Hardy
considered the job because he
admitted he was despondent
over the state of the choral
program in Bradford County.
The program at the middle
school had been relegated to a
band director, and, the number
of students taking chorus in
high school dropped.
Several school officials
asked Hardy to stay, and he
agreed to., proposing to take
over the middle school
program again. It was Hardy's
intent to teach the middle
school students, along with the
high school students, for two
or three years before handing
the program over to a "good
choral person." As it turned
out, when Hardy did go back
to teaching strictly high school
students, the middle school
program was handed over to a
band director.
The state of the middle
school program has frustrated
Hardy at times over the years.
It has brought students to him
at the high school who are not
at the skill level he would like
them to be.
Hardy, though, said his job
is no different from any other
job. Like life itself, it has its
peaks and valleys, and there
have been many peaks for
Hardy to experience.


please call Zow at Union
County High School at (386)
496-2569.

BHS football

workouts

begin Monday
The summer workout
program for varsity and junior
varsity members of the
Bradford High School football
program begins Monday, June
16.
Workouts will be held from
6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on
Monday, Tuesdays and
Thursday.
Players must have an up-to-
date physical in order to
participate.


High points and a
perfect day
The high point of his career
occurred in the mid-1990s,
Hardy said. He w\as able to
work with and develop
students for seven years since
he was also heading up the
middle school program. The
result? One year, the Bradford
High School program earned
six straight superior ratings in
state competition in 1995.
"The accolades he was
receiving and his groups were
receiving from state -officials
was just truly amazing,"
McRae said.
"That was like a mountain in
my career," Hardy said.
Hardy also cited 2004 as a
high point. That year produced
what he called the most proud
day of his career.
He w'as in New York City
with a group of choral students
that would participate in a
performance at Carnegie Hall
as part of the National Youth
Choir. Hardy got a call from
his son, informing him that he
had been accepted into the
University of Florida School of
Music.
That was great news, but
later that day, Hardy learned
that one of his students-
Elizabeth Frampton--was
selected to perform a soprano
solo during the National Youth
Choir performance.
As if that wasn't enough,
one of Hardy's former students
at BHS-George Lavasser-
got in touch with him. George
Lavasser, lived in New York,
so he met Hardy for dinner.


Hardy discovered that
Lavasser was working as an
arranger for acclaimed
musician Wynton Marsalis.
Lavasser said he owed his
musical accomplishments to
Hardy.
"I could barely go to sleep
that night," HardI said. "It was
like, 'Maybe 1 did a couple of
things right.'"
Frampton sure thinks he did
a couple of things right. Hardy
persuaded Frampton, during a
chance meeting on campus, to


take chorus when all she was
thinking of, in terms of music,
was continuing to play the
clarinet in band. He was
instrumental in getting Stetson
University to look at
Frampton, which eventually
led to a scholarship offer.
Then, when it came time to
attend either the University of
Florida as a band student or
Stetson as a singer, Hardy
helped persuade Frampton to
choose the latter.
Frampton said Hardy told


her clarinets are a dime a
dozen before adding, "You
never know what your one
voice can do to change the
world."
"I'll never forget him,"
Frampton said of Hardy. "He's
made such an impact on my
life and career."

Moving on
Hardy said it is time for him

Local youth help team take title
The Palatka Panthers 14-under AAU Baseball team hosted the Hitters Classic at
the Francis Youth Complex the weekend of May 10 after placing third in the
Slugarama in Bradenton, were the top teams compete. The Panthers, along with
teams from Clay, Duval, Flagler and Marion counties, started their run by beating
the Keystone Krush 9-5 and the Flagler Bulldogs 17-3 to earn the number-one
seed for the May 11 elimination games. Palatka beat the Jacksonville Buzz 7-2 to
advance to the championship game, then the Keystone Krush 10-2 to win the
tournament. The pitchers for the weekend were Casey Overturf, Jared Barrs, M.J.
Scott, Austin Moreland, Jason Chitwood and Austin Tuttle. The leading batting
averages were Chris Leduc (.636, two home runs), Dylan Lloyd (.500), Brandon
Thomas (.444) and Austin Moreland (.416). Pictured are: (front row, I-r) M.J. Scott,
Casey Overturf, Blake Summers, Brandon Thomas, bat boy B.rent Summers,
(middle row, I-r) Jakeem Perry, Dylan Lloyd, (back row, I-r) coach Charles Overturf,
Jared Barrs, Jacob Sevearance, Austin Moreland, Jason Chitwood, Chris Leduc,
Austin Tuttle, coach Chet Summers and coach Ronnie Thomas. Not Pictured: head
coach Josh Lloyd.


CHORUS
Continued from page 9B
to move on, describing himself
as an "old bird" that needs to
step down and let someone
more young and energetic take
over the program.
"Unfortunately, they're
discontinuing this program due
to budget cuts," Hardy said.
"That is a great, great source
of sadness to me."
The choral program will be
cut to one period a day. McRae
said he understands the
financial limitations the school
district finds itself facing, but
he feels cutting the choral
program is not one of tie
solutions, citing existing
evidence that music in
students' lives can positively
affect academic performance.
"It's one of those programs I
see as essential," McRae said.
Hardy, who proposed that
the school district hire a choral
director to teach both middle
school and high school
students as a way of saving
money, agrees with McRae
about the importance of music.


In fact, Hardy said an
appreciation and understanding
of music-and the arts
overall-helps a person be
"fully human." He would love
to see children in this county
receive such exposure at an
early age.
"A robust music program
and music experience in
kindergarten and the first grade
can totally change a life, not
only just for the arts, but for
academics as well," Hardy
said.
Yet Hardy admitted he sets
the bar high when it comes to
his expectations, adding, "It's
public school. It is what it is.
It's put food on my table for a
long time. There's nobody
here I'm pointing a finger at
and saying, "Shame on you.'
No, no. The shame's on me,
too.
"There's a lot more to be
thankful for than to complain
about."
Frampton, for one, is
thankful that Hardy remained
in Bradford County for 30
years instead of leaving for a
job in a bigger city. Hardy,
during his tenure, turned down
several job offers from other


P7FSWr 7c s 7

U


counties.
"That's just something that's
so amazing to me," Frampton
said.
Now, all those things that
made Hard) special to so
many people-his musical
ability, his sense of humor and
his passion in helping children
achieve something they never
thought possible in their
lives-will be sorely missed in
the school system.
"We are all grieving that
he's hanging it up because we
know he will be impossible to
replace," McRae said.


Success is not
measured by what you
accomplish, but by the
opposition you have
encountered, and the
courage with which
you have maintained
the struggle against
overwhelming odds.
