of Forestry and rules related to open
burns still apply.
For example, do not burn on
:windy, days and never leave a fire
unattended. While rain has reduced
the chance of wildfires, there is still
a danger that fires can get out of
control.,As of Tuesday, the drought
index was still slightly abole what
is normal for this time of year. Since
January, the county has had' around
19 inches of rain, Johns said, but
that is still below normal.

Guard team trains for disaster response


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


Jonathan Adkins of Starke was
bleeding from his head, as well as
from several other places. He was
nauseous and experiencing stomach
cramps.
It would be a most unpleasant
experience for Adkins if any of it
was real. He was merely part of an
act, but that act, hopefully, will pay
dividends in real-life scenarios.
Adkins and other "role players"
were part of a training exercise at
Camp Blanding on June 27 for the
Florida. National Guaid's CERF
(chemical, biological,' radiological,
nuclear and high-yield explosive
enhanced response force) team.
"Victims" were placed in a building
representing a hospital as well as
buried in a pile of rubble that was-
according to the training scenario-a
bank and parking garage.
Anyone visiting the scene may
have mistaken it for real -that is until
they saw some smiles here and there
from the Guardsmen participating.
The smiles were the result of the


knowledge that the members of the
CERF team were better preparing
themselves to help others- in times
of need.
"This is icaiJlk ii r ning). They
Hunger for it," said Maj. Mike Ladd,
who was in charge'of the exercise.
"It's' almost like they're thirsty for
more and more training. It's very
tough. You see every single one of
them out here sweating and working
hard, but there are smiles on their
faces. They know what they're doing
is going to make an impact on the
citizens of Florida and nationally as
well."
The CERF team is composed of
-members- .of. three National Guard
units:. 202nd RED- HORSE -(rapid
engineerdeployable heavyoperational
repair squadron engineers) Squadron,
927th Combat Sustainment Support
Battalion and 125th. Fighter Wing
Medical Group. Each unit has its own
responsibility while working under
the umbrella of the CERF team. The
202nd RED HORSE members handle
search and extraction, rescuing people
and making sure they get to on-site
medical personnel. Members of the


927th make sure those people undergo
decontamination, if necessary, before
they are sent, to a medical triage
area staffed by 125th Fighter Wing
personnel..
Capt. Bre.nda Brinkley of the 125th
Fighter Wing said, "It's cool to be
able to work between the branches
of the military, to be able to actually
understand each other."
The exercise began with 202nd
RED HORSE personnel arriving oni
scene to an attack on, in Ladd's
words, "Anytown, USA." They were
confronted with the collapse of two.
buildings and an attack on a hospital.
The hospital was still standing, but
there was a possible risk of radioactive
contamination.
RED HORSE members searched---
through the rubble of the collapsed
buildings, calling out to see .if
there were any survivors trapped
underneath. Cameras were used to
look beneath the rubble as well,
while torches and jackhammers
were employed to free people. RED.
HORSE personnel also constructed
braces to prevent further collapse of
the wreckage.

College sees growth in spite of cuts


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor'

A $3 million cut in spending
because of shrinking support from
the state means students of Santa
Fe Community College will pay
6 percent more to go to school.
The tuition hike equates to. f
$126 more a year for students | [
taking 30 credits. A tighter
budget also meant the school '
had to cut 24 staff positions.
Those workers were reassigned
to other jobs within the college.
Twenty additional unfilled faculty
and staff posts will remain vacant.
While that may mean more
work for those who do work for
the college, the college board was
able to accomplish the cut without
layoffs, and while employees, will
go without a raise, there is a $1,000
supplement in their future.
At the Andrews Center in Starke,
Director Cheryl Canova said the
effect of budget cuts have been felt
over the last two years. There has
been no budget increase and no new
hires, and that would have been the
case even if someone had left, she
said.


"Fortunately for me,
everybody stayed, so we're in good
shape," Canova said.
Even though she didn't expect to
see a copy of the budget until later
this week, she said the Andrews
Center would be fine.
"Things are more expensive, so
it means we have to purchase less.
but I really don't think it's going to
.,fect the Andrews Center as much."


Canova said.
Even as cuts challenge the college
to do more with less, a new day has
dawned. As of Tuesday, Santa Fe
and other two-year schools 'like
\ it around the state dropped their
community college identities, on
, the way to becoming four-year
I institutions. The first two-four-
year programs to be offered
through Santa Fe College as
it is now know, at least in
this pilot year, are the bachelor
of applied science degrees in
clinical laboratory science and'
health services management.
With the change comes a new
logo and seal, as well as a new
domain name for the college's Web
site, www.sfcollege.edu. Signage
won't be changed to reflect the name
change, however, until the end of
the pilot year. At that time the state
could decide that all new four-year
schools should include the words
state college in their names, e.g.
Santa Fe State College.
Under the new law, a state college
system was created, as was a task
force to oversee the transition of

Starke's budget workshop
began and ended without grand
ideas for improving efficiency or
recommendations for deep cuts that
would keep city finances on track
for the remainder of the year.
When all was said and done,
a recommendation from the city
attorney to advise department heads
of what remains in their budgets- and
require them to stick to it was the
clearest, if not most obvious, course
of action offered.
City Clerk Linda Johns said as the
city's treasurer she had to inform
commissioners and department
heads that the city is short of funds.
"It's not that I'm trying to take
anything away from anybody, it's
just that we don't have funds, and
we need to come up with some way
to finish out the rest of the year,"
Johns said.
Revenue from the stpte is down
by 12 percent she said, primarily
due to less than expected revenue
from the sales and communications
taxes. Meanwhile other expenses,
including the cost of fuel, are up.
"It's the economy. It has nothing
to do with what we're doing here."
Johns said.
The-enterprise fund, which covers
utilities, is doing well. she said. It's
the general fund where the revenue
shortage is occurring.
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
asked the clerk whether or not

Funds

lacking

for school

construction

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph ,Editor

Construction projects on the
scale of the Lawtey Community
School rebuild could be a long time
coming given the amount of funding
available.
According to J.E. Mott, the school
district's construction supervisor,
there are two projects the school
board needs to set as priorities,
and each is worth an estimated $6
million to accomplish.
The first is the replacement of
aging buildings at Southside
Elementary, buildings that are
around 50 years old. The district also
needs to remodel the main building
at Bradford Middle School, he said,
converting existing office space to
classrooms and replacing the offices
with a new administrative building.
A survey of Bradford school sites
conducted last year by the Florida
Department of Education prioritized
the two projects. The changes must
now be incorporated into the school
board's five-year facilities plan, an
updated version of which is due in
Tallahassee by Oct. 1.
The facilities plan not only lists
project priorities, however. It also
tells the state how the district plans
to pay for the projects it intends to
undertake in the next five years.
The catch now, however, is that
while the Southside and middle
school construction projects may
need to be prioritized, there "on't
be enough funding available to
undertake either in the next five
years. Mott broke down the available
funding sources for construction
and facility maintenance, including
the so-called "two-mill money,"
the portion of the school district's
property tax levy that the state says
must be used for capital projects in
the five-year plan.

Continued from p. 1A
Injured people were also
brought up from an elevator
shaft and lowered to safety from
the roof of the aforementioned
hospital.
Chuck Morrow, a member
of the 202nd RED HORSE
and non-commissioned officer
in charge of the search and
extraction phase,was impressed
with what he saw out of his
fellow unit members. RED
HORSE members, because
of a return from a recent
deployment, did not have much
time to devote to search and
extraction training. Morrow
said he condensed a weeklong
training course into two days.
The RED HORSE members,
however, quickly picked up
on what to do, Morrow said,
adding that the effort made him
proud.
"This is their first time
training in this arena," Morrow
said. "The way they've picked
up the ball and ran with it
right out of the box is simply
amazing to me."
From their rescue from
whatever predicament they
were in, the injured people were
transported to a triage center
manned by 927th personnel.
One person who assisted in
accepting the injured from the
202nd was Psc. Devin Johnson
of Starke. Johnson is a member
of the 631st Maintenance
,ompany, which is a unit of
the 927th.
--Johnson said he helped
transport the injured on litters.
Upon receiving the injured,
Johnson and others determined
if they needed to go through
decontamination due to
radioactive exposure.
It was good to go through
such training, Johnson said,
because it could benefit many
people-including his own
family and friends-one day.
"It's a good feeling because
they're actually giving you
realistic training," Johnson
said.
The injured, after being
evaluated by 927th personnel,
were then tended to by 125th


which supports first-response
agencies in incidents, whether
they be structures that have
been attacked by terrorists or
destroyed because of hurricanes
or tornadoes.
"Support" is the key word,
said Col. William Beiswenger,
the director of operations, joint
directorate of military support
for the Florida National Guard.
An area's law enforcement
officers, fire fighters and
paramedics will be the first
responders to an incident, but
Guardsmen are ready to assist
if needed.
"If the event is of the size
where they need additional
support, we're standing by
and ready to bring in our
folks and give a helping hand,
Beiswenger said.
Morrow, from what he saw
during the June 27 training,
feels the CERF team should
have no trouble inserting itself
into an emergency situation and
work cooperatively with others
who are working the scene.
"At a major event, we'll be
able to blend right in with our
civilian counterparts and work
together," Morrow said.

Fighter Wing personnel. A
determination was made on
the severity of their patients'
injuries and whether or not
they needed to be evacuated
immediately to the nearest
hospital.
Adkins and the other role
players exhibited various types
of injuries, from bleeding
wounds to burns. The realistic
makeup was provided by IIF
Data Solutions Inc. moulage
artists.
The injuries, however, had to
go beyond what one could see
visually.Alan Petty, the program
manager, domestic operations
for IIF Data Solutions, said
each role player was assigned
a casualty card. Those cards
not only gave the actors their
instructions on how they should
be feeling as a result of their
injuries, but listed instructions


for CERF medical staff. Those
instructions included the actors'
vital signs, whether or not their
pupils were dilated, etc.-
things that can't be replicated
by the use of realistic makeup.
Actors participated in a
brief workshop the day before
the exercise with IIF Data
Solutions personnel. Petty said
it- was important for the actors
to exhibit symptoms of real-
life victims. They needed to
express confusion, pain, stress
and, in some cases, anger.
"We want that replicated
because that's the environment,
God forbid, that our CERF is
going to deploy to if they ever
get a mission to support an
incident like that," Petty said.
The CERF team is a task
force that was organized to
work hand-in-hand with the
44th Civil Support Team,

to 13.2-kilovolt transmission
upgrade would save customers
money and provide a more
reliable system.
Line losses in the system
measuredas muchas 14percent,
but that should be reduced to 9
percent or better now that the
conversion phase of the project
is complete. To ilLustrate-.what -
that means, Thompson said the
city purchased 79.3 million
kilowatts of electricity from
FMPA last year, but only sold
69.2 million to its customers.
The 10 million kilowatt
difference is electricity that
"just disappeared on the line,"
he said.
Because it was purchased,
however, -it had to be paid
for, so customers paid not
only for what they used but an
excess amount of line loss as
well. A more efficient system,
however, will reduce this
phenomenon.
"That means savings for the
city right off the bat as well as
for the customers," Thompson
said.
FMPA CEO and General
Manager Roger Fontes said
citizens would benefit every
minute of every day from the
work performed to improve
the system, especially given
the cost of natural gas. With
prices being what 'they are,
everyone has to be judicious
in the use of electricity and
prevent losses where they can,
he said.
"It's just gotten too valuable
to leave the lights on, to leave
the refrigerator open, to set
the thermostat at 70 degrees
and have.a system- that has ,12 1-
to ;4 percent line losses. It's,
c3mplicae'd id it's costfy bo"
fix, but it's like most things:-
If you invest the money, you
will get the return," said
Fontes, who also recalled
Homer Bryant's role in first
promoting the value of the
electric conversion project

ACORN
receives
breast cancer
grant
The Avon Foundation
Breast Care Fund has awarded
a $26,000 one-year grant to
ACORN Clinic to increase
awareness of the life-saving
benefits of early detection of
breast cancer to the Women's
Health Partnership, Breast
Health Outreach program. It
is the fifth year the successful
program has received Avon
Foundation funding to support
its work on this important health
issue and in recognition of the
excellence of the program.
ACORN Clinic's Women's
Health Partnership, Breast
Health Outreach program will
educate women on proper
breast health education and
self-examination in a tri-county
area of North Central Florida
SBr.adlord, Union and Alachua
counties) and refer them to
low-cost or free mammograms
and clinical breast exams
in their own communities.
The program will focus on
reaching women of all races in
unconventional areas, including
ladies church groups, beauty
salons and health fairs.
The program will also
provide gas reimbursement
coupons to patients who need
assistance with transportation.
Since January 2003, ACORN
Clinic's Women's Health
Partnership, Breast Health
Outreach program has reached
5,146 women with information
about the importance of
early detection of breast
cancer, facilitated over 1,200
mammography referrals and
performed 1,400 clinical breast
exams. Goals for 2008 are
to reach over 1,000 women
with educational information,
clinical breast exams and
mammography referrals.
Breast cancer is the most
common form of cancer in
women in the U.S., and the
leading single cause of death
overall in women between the
ages of 40 and 55. According
to the American Cancer
Society, 232 new cases of
breast cancer will be detected
in Florida this year and 59
lives will be lost. Nationwide,
there is a new diagnosis every

minutes. While advances have
been made in prevention,
diagnosis, treatment and cure,
early detection still affords the
best opportunity for successful

Outreach program help ensure
that all women have access
to early detection information
and options, even poor and
medically underserved women.

Foundation shares our mission
and has chosen to support our
program. With these funds we
will be able to continue our

SCHOOL
Continued from p. 1A


The state has cut that amount
to 1.75 mills, which Mott said
would raise around $1.54
million for the 2008-09 school
year, plus any rollover of two-
mill money from the current
year's budget, which is not
expected. (The state allocated
the remaining quarter-mill of
two-mill money to support
school board general funds.)
School districts also use
PECO (Public Education
Capital Outlay) dollars from
the state. A portion of the
PECO money is earmarked
for new construction and
amounts to around $88,000
for next year. The rest of the
PECO money is for special
maintenance projects only and
totals nearly $302,000 for next


CRUNCH
Continued from p. 1A

department heads were given
monthly spreadsheets showing
their year-to-date spending.
Johns said she provided
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson with a copy of what
she presents to the board each
month, although Thompson
didn't agree he received a
monthly budget report.
Waters insisted department
heads need regular budget
reports, and Johns said she
would be happy to provide
them, although when asked,
a couple of those individuals
said it would only help if
provided in a format they could
comprehend. They admitted
they didn't understand the last
such report they were given.
For the next three months,
Johns recommended that
she, Thompson and Project
Director Joe Fisher all sign off
on each purchase requested by
the departments. A freeze on
hiring or replacing departing
employees is also in effect.
Shutting off idling vehicles,
gasless go-karts for the meter
department, cops on bikes
instead of in patrol vehicles
and turning off the decorative
lights downtown were among
the smaller ideas presented.
Without naming names, Waters
called out some employees for
spending too much time riding
around town, and a daily log of
trips made was recommended.
More problematic in terms
of expense is the cost of rescue
runs by the fire department and
employee overtime costs there
and in other departments. Part-
time employee spending for
the fire department is already
at 82.7 percent of what was
budgeted, and overtime is at
95.4 percent, although the
budget year is just 75 percent
complete. The city is out of
money there with three months
to go in the fiscal year, Johns
said.
She recalled when the
commission hired a fourth
firefighter for each shift that
the commission directed the
fire department not to call in
replacements when one of
those four was absent from
work. Fire Chief Tom Rowe
'said that was not possible
because of the requirement to
have four men on a shift, even
when not active.
The city is trying to tap
the county for fire department
support. Mayor Travis Woods
said he and Thompson met
with the county manager
and commission chairman to
discuss reimbursement for fire


year. (Special maintenance
PECO money will be allocated
for such projects as heating and
air conditioning, roofing,ADA
compliance, safety lighting,
fire alarms, painting, etc.)
There is more than $408,000
of carry forward PECO dollars,
but Mott said that is tied up in
funding summer maintenance
projects.
An additional $23,500 in
capital outlay and debt service
money will be available,as will
interest dollars amounting to
around $8,000. Carry forward
cash from this year is around
$67,000.
The district has lost
Classroom for Kids money,
Mott said, which brought
in more than a half million
dollars for the current year's
budget but won't be available
next year.
The tricky part is allocating

and rescue services provided
by the city fire department.
Fuel purchases and truck
repair is already over budget,
accordingtoJohns'spreadsheet,
and the commission discussed
reducing the number of
responses to accident scenes
not involving injuries, -but
Rowe said it's sometimes
hard to screen which calls to
respond to.
The city is being reimbursed
by insurance companies for
such calls, but the recovery
rate for those funds in not 100
percent.
On a positive note, Rowe
said around $72,000 in FEMA
reimbursement funding from
the Dairy Road Fire last year
should be arriving any day.
But saving funds could require
cutting out services like
hydrant maintenance and pre-
fire planning with businesses,
Rowe said.
The fire chief said it may
be time to talk about levying a
fire assessment fee or consider
consolidating services with the
county.
Overtime spending in other
departments ranges from
nearly 60 percent of what
was budgeted in the police
department to 85.4 percent
of what was budgeted in the
street department and 164.7
percent of what was budgeted
for parks and recreation.
According to Johns, the city
is still owed $20.,000Q, or, mre
from.last year by .thperecreation
department.Recrea11Onffbses
revenue from its programs
to cover half of the cost of
hiring summer employees, and
the city covers the other half
of the cost, but has not been
reimbursed for recreation's
half since last summer.
Recreation Director Alica
McMillian said the department
was wrongly assessed half
of the cost of all part-time
help by the city, not just its,
summer help, and that's why
the bill has not been paid.
While she said she made a
trip to the finance director and
the auditor to try clear up
the incorrect billing, she. was
scolded for not doing more to
resolve the issue. Johns said
she was never told about the
discrepancy, and McMillian
said the money is in the bank
pending confirmation that her
own calculation of what is
owed the city is correct.
Recreation has cut the amount
of hours worked by summer
help in light of tough times,
McMillian said. Program costs
had to be raised and enrollment
is down. At the same time,
funding usually donated by
the business community, for
summer program scholarships
has been nonexistent. Only


the funding that is available
between all of the district's
needs. Buses are paid for out
of the two-mill money, as are
the salary for. the building
official, technology costs,
furniture, other equipment and
even some insurance costs (a
leniency granted by the state
because of soaring insurance
prices). Once all of that is paid
for, Mott said the district would
have only $750,000-850,000 a
year to commit to construction
in the five-year plan. At that
rate it would take longer than
five years to amass the funds
to pay for just one of the $6
million construction projects,
he said.
Even if the school board had
all of the money,Superintendent
Harry Hatcher said there
would be logistical problems
such as what to do with middle
school students while the main

building is being remodeled
over 12 to 18 months. On
the other hand, Mott said the
aging buildings at Southside
could develop unforeseen
infrastructure issues that could
shut the school down if that
project is not addressed in the
next several years.
No decisions were made
regarding the five-year plan.
Instead, it and the distribution
of construction funds will
be considered in future
workshop sessions. Hatcher
and Mott are expected to bring
recommendations back to the
board.
On a related matter,
maintenance for the school
board offices such as reroofing
has been put off pending the
DOE survey suggestion that
administration be moved to
the Family Service Center. If
administration stays put, Mott


said some major additional
maintenance costs will be
incurred in reroofing those
buildings. Fortunately, he said,
major maintenance projects at
the schools are not anticipated
because of past work to make
improvements.
Extensions,
additions and
returns
Mott is still scheduled
to retire this year, but the
school board voted to extend
his position through the end
of September to aid in the
transition.
The school board also added
a supplemental educational
clerk position to the ESE
department. That employee

members will also share those
responsibilities.
Staffing positions were also
shuffled in the department.
Instead of two staffing
specialists, there will now be
one, with the other working
directly under the department
director with the newly
approved job description of
ESE facilitator. The former
student services secretary
position will now be known
as the Title I/studcnt services
clerk.
Even with the new position
created, administrators said
there would still be a savings
to the general fund because'the
position is paid for with Title
I funds.
Finally, retired employee Dr.
Steve Miller has returned to
the district as the MIS director,
the position formerly held by
Lanier Clyatt.

Move over:
It's the law
It's the law; it's common
sense; it's common courtesy
and it's a lifesaver. Florida
law enforcement officers have
been working hard to enforce
the Move Over Law since it
became official in 2002.
The law requires drivers to
move over one lane whenever
an emergency vehicle on the
side of the road has emergency
lights activated. If moving over
is not an option, the drivers
must simply slow down at
least 20 mph below the posted
speed limit.
"Compliance with Florida's
Move Over Law is critical for
the safety of law enforcement


officers and other emergency
personnel working on our
highways," said Col. John
Czernis, director of the Florida
Highway Patrol. "That's why
our law includes protection for
all first responders, emergency
personnel and construction
workers. Every one of these
people are putting their lives
at risk. Every one of them
deserves protection under the
law."
A statewide Move Over
Law Task Force was formed
to develop strategies to better
educate the public about the
law and to better enforce it.
"The department is
committed to working with
our partners to educate and
enforce the Move Over Law,"
said Electra Theodorides-


Bustle, executive director of
the Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles. "We
believe it will make a difference
in the life of an emergency
worker. Law enforcement
is already one of the most
difficult and dangerous jobs
a person can choose without
the added worry of a motorist
passing you on the roadway
and creating more hazards. At
the Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles, we
are leading the way to a safer
Florida, for everyone on our
roadways."
"The stakes are just too
high," said the president of the
Florida Sheriff's Association
and Baker County Sheriff
Joey Dobson. "Too many law
enforcement officers can tell


stories about almost getting
hit by passing cars during
traffic stops. Every close call
is a brush with death that never
makes the evening news. Man\
people only pay attention \when
an officer gets killed. By then.
it's too late."
"Our police officers are out
there every day working for
the public to keep them safe,"
said Florida Police Chiefs
Association President Chief
Gerald Monahan of the Port
Orange Police Department.
"We owe it to them to
provide them a safer working
environment by moving over
when we see them stopped.
Give them the room they need
to do. their jobs safely."

New
requirement
in place for
motorcycle
licensure
The Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles
wants to remind future
motorcyclists of a change in
Florida law effective July 1.
Beginning July 1, new
motorcyclists mustsuccessfully
complete the Basic Rider
Course through the Florida
Rider Trainer Program before
they can have the motorcycle
endorsement added to their
driver license, per section
322.12(5)(a), Florida Statutes.
"Before July 1,2008, anyone
over the age of 21 could take
and pass the knowledge test and
skills test and get a motorcycle
endorsement," said Director of
the Division of Driver Licenses
Sandra Lambert. "After July
1 of this year, everyone will
have to take the class and
pass the test, no matter their
age. Future motorcyclists
will be able to find a Basic
Rider Course sponsor or


Teacher on our Web site at
motorcycles.hsmv.state .fl.us/.
Upon successful completion,
the sponsor will transmit
the results electronically to
the department and inform
the customer to apply at the
nearest driver license office
for the endorsement."
Customers can also call
(850) 488-3286 and locate a
sponsor nearest to them.
The Department's Florida
Rider Training Program
has a wealth of information
on motorcycle safety and
proper licensure. For more
information, check out www.
flhsmv.gov. Also information
on where to find approved
sponsors who teach the course
can be found here.

Beware rabies
danger
Recently, several Clay
County residents were exposed
to a raccoon that tested positive
for rabies. The raccoon was
found, taken home and adopted.
These people required rabies
post-exposure treatment.
This is the time of year when
there are many baby animals


present. In many cases, they
appear to be abandoned but
the parent may actually be
close by waiting for humans
to leave.
There is no animal "too
young" to have rabies. In
fact, it is rare but possible
for animals to be infected
before birth if the mother
has the disease. The general
public should not handle wild
animals. You are advised
to contact the local animal
control office if you find sick
or injured wildlife. People are
encouraged to observe but do
not touch healthy appearing
wildlife. Contact should be
avoided particularly with
raccoons, bats and foxes.
Rabies is a disease of the
nervous system and is fatal
to warm-blooded animals
and humans. The only
treatment for human exposure
to rabies is rabies specific
immune globulin and' rabies
immunization. Appropriate
treatment started soon after
the exposure, will protect
an exposed person from the
disease.
The following advice is
issued:
-All pets should have


current rabies immunizations.
-Avoid all contact with all
wildlife, especially raccoons,
bats and foxes.
-All persons with any
exposure incident, such as a
bite from an animal should
contact their health care
provider or local emergency
room.
-Report animal bites,
exposures to local animal
control at (904) 964-9200 or
health department officials at
(904) 964-7732.
-Secure outside garbage in
covered containers to avoid
attracting wild animals.
-Do not leave pet food
outside. This also attracts other
animals.
-For questions regarding
the health of an animal, contact
your veterinarian.
-Veterinarian staff and
animal control staff should be
alert for animals encountered
with signs of rabies.
For further information on
rabies, you can also go to the
Florida Department of Health
Web site at www.doh.state.
fl.us.


Talk: It helps
prevent teen
tobacco use
Did you know an estimated 23
percent of high school students
in the United States are current
smokers? Furthermore, each
day in the U.S., approximately
4,000 young people between
the ages of 12 and 17 begin
smoking cigarettes, and.
an estimated 1,140 young
people become daily cigarette
smokers.
There are several factors that
increase the risk of youth using
tobacco. These include use of
tobacco by their peers, smoking
by parents or guardians, ease of
accessibility to cigarettes, and
the perception that tobacco use
is normal.
Talking to your kids about
the physical, emotional and
economic effects of tobacco
use is essential to helping
your young people make good
decisions. The following tips
may help:
Talk to your child early and
often. Elementary school is not
too early to begin talking with
your child about good decision
making.


Ask questions. Find out if
your child has any friends who
smoke or if the parents of their
friends smoke.
Inform your child about the
dangers of smoking.
If you have any questions or
need additional resources to use
in talking to your kids about the
dangers of tobacco, contact.the
Tobacco Prevention Program at
the Bradford or Union County
Health Departments at (904)
964-7732 or (386) 496-3211.

Christian Love. Once
again, I ask that you
would not be offended,
but do take the time to
investigate the Word of
God for yourself.


Question: Should we
follow the Ten
Commandments today?

The Answer is a Resounding NO!
Most people believe we should still keep the
Ten Commandments. Is this true? What does
the Bible say? The Bible says that the Ten
Commandments were given to the nation of
Israel at Mt. Sinai after they left Egyptian
slavery (Deuteronomy 4:13; 9:9, 10). Moses
said: "The Lord our God made a covenant with
us in Horeb. The Lord did not make this
covenant with our fathers, but with us, those
who are here today, all of us who are alive"
(Deuteronomy. 5:2,3). This was a new law God
had given. It had not been given to their
ancestors. It was given only to the children of
Israel!
The command to keep the sabbath (the
seventh day of the week, which is Saturday)
was not required of man before Mt. Sinai
(Jeremiah 9:13-14).
It was not required for any people except
Israel for it was not given to anyone else! The
Law given at Sinai to Israel, which- included
the Ten Commandments, was made only with
the nation of Israel and no one else! Gentiles
(non-Jews) were not required to keep the Law
unless they became converts to the Jewish
faith. Even if the Old Covenant has not been
taken away in Christ, it would not be required
of non-Jews. It never was intended for them.
Jeremiah, who lived under the Law given at
Sinai, said that this Law was temporary and
that God was goingto make a New Law with
His people: "Behold, the days are coming, says
the Lord, when I will make a new covenant
with the house of Israel and with the house of
Judah not according to the covenant that I
made with their fathers in the day that I took
them by the hand to lead them out of the land
of Egypt" (Jeremiah 31:31,32). The New Law
would be different from the Old. Jeremiah
spoke these words 900 years after the Law was
given at Mt. Sinai and 600 years before Christ
gave the New Law. The writer of Hebrews in
the New Testament quotes this passage from
Jeremiah and applies it to Jesus Christ who is
"also Mediator of a better covenant, which was
established on better promises. For if that first
covenant had been faultless, then no place
would have been sought for a second"
(Hebrews 8:6-13).
Jeremiah 31:31-34 also states some other
differences between the Old Law and the New.
The Old Law was written on tables of stone,
but the New would be written on a believer's
heart. The Old Law did not provide for final
forgiveness of sins, but the New did. The Ten
Commandments were part of that Old Law.
They have not been required of,people to keep
since Jesus died on the cross 2000 years ago
(Colossians 2:14). Christ at t.iat time gave a
"better covenant, which was established on
better promises (Hebrews 8:6).

Old Law, or Old Covenant)? The New Testament
tells us, "In that He says, 'A new covenant," He
has made the first obsolete. Now what is
becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to
vanish away" (Hebrews 8:13). "For on the one
hand there is an annulling of the former
commandment because of its weakness and
unprofitableness, for the law made nothing
perfect..." (Hebrews 7:18, 19). "Then He said,
'Behold, I have come to do Your will, 0 God.'
He takes away the first that He may establish the
second" (Hebrews 10:9). "For the priesthood
being changed, of necessity, there is also a
change of the law" (Hebrews 7:12). The apostle
Paul wrote: "Having wiped out the handwriting
of requirements (the Law of Moses) that was
against us, which was contrary to us, And He has
taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the
cross" (Colossians 2:14). Paul also wrote
concerning this Old Law which contained the
Ten Commandments: "Therefore the law was
our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be
justified by faith. But after faith has come, we
are no longer under a tutor" (Galatians 3:24, 25).
When was the Old Law taken away and the
New Law given? It happened when Jesus shed
His blood on the cross: "And for this reason He
is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means
of death, for the redemption of the transgressions
under the first covenant, that those who are
called may receive the promise of the eternal
inheritance. For where there is a testament, there
must also of necessity be the death of the
testator. For a testament is in force after men are
dead, since it has no power at all while the
testator lives" (Hebrews 9:15-17).
What was the purpose of the Old Law which
was given to Israel at Mt. Sinai? Paul answers:
"What purpose then does the law serve? It
was added because of transgressions, till the
Seed should come to whom the promise was
made; and it was appointed through angels by
the hands of a mediator" (Galatians 3:19). The
Seed is Christ (Galatians 3:16). The Old Law,
which contained the Ten Commandments, was
given to keep Israel under control until Christ
came. Since Christ has come and has fulfilled
this Law, He has taken it out of the way. He has
given us a New Law (covenant or testament).
We must go to this New Law to learn how Gods
wants us to serve Him today!

Notice God's Plan of Salvation For Man Today.
1. We must hear the truth.
Romans 10:14; Romans 10:17.
2. We must believe Jesus Christ is the Son of
God. Mark 16:16; John 8:24.
3. We must repent of our sins.
Luke 13:3; Acts 2:38.
4. We must confess Christ before men.
Matthew 10:32, 33; Romans 10:10.
5. We must be baptized into Christ.
Galatians 3:27; 1 Peter 3:21; Acts 22:16.
6. We must continue to live for Christ.
Revelation 2:10; 2 Peter 1:10; 2 Peter 3:18.

Another project Bradford
Master Gardeners have
been heavily involved in is
establishing drought-tolerant,
attractive demonstration
landscapes at the Bradford
County Extension Service
office. Two years ago, a
butterfly garden, which is
currently under re-construction,
was established. Plans are
under way to establish more
drought-tolerant plants at the
extension office so homeowners
and professional landscapers
can view assorted landscape
options.
The landscape plants and
irrigation supplies the Master
Gardeners use as teaching tools
are paid for through a grant
from the Suwannee River Water
Management District.
Mosquito population

the efforts of Master Gardener
volunteers. Last year, the
number of hours donated to
this program exceeded 600.
Modem mosquito control uses
a strategy called "integrated
pest management," which can
be applied to the management
of any pest, from corn worms to
mosquitoes. Master Gardeners
are able to apply the principles

systems besides plantscapes.
Master Gardeners also learn

Another program taught

has been taught in schools in
Bradford and Alachua counties

The gardens will include
plants that attract butterflies

Bradford Arc to open thrift store to generate funds


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
As a way of dealing with
state budget cuts, Arc of
Br.idford County will be
opening a thrift store next
month to generate the revenue
necessary to continue its
services to consumers in
Bradford, Clay and Union
counties.
The thrift store, which will
be located at Arc's Sunshine
Industries off of S.R. 100 in
Starke, has a tentative opening
date of Aug. 6. It will be open
Tuesdays-Sa.iluida s. with
hours of operation on
Tuesdays- Fridays set at 9 am.-
3 p,m. ,.Siid.ay hours have
not been determined yet.)
Sherry Ruszkowski, the
director of Arc of Bradford
Coi nl.. which serves
consumers with developmental
ditbilhics said this year's
iud'gi cuts have been
devastatingg." The thrift store
is a way ot addressing those
cuts.
"It's a means of surviving
these times," Ruszkowski said.
Ruszkowski said Arc
applied for a state grant in
hopes of obtaining funding that
would help open a thrift store
in a vacant building across the
street. The grant application
was unsuccessful, but that was
not a deterrent. It's just that the
thrift store will have to start
out on a small scale and be
located in-h6use; Ruszkowski
said.
The thrift store will be
located in a room Arc has been
utilizing as a cafeteria for its
consumers. Though that will
provide a bit of an
inconvenience in terms of
moving the cafeteria, the room
is ideal in that it has direct
access from outside the
facility.
"We can kind of isolate this
area," Ruszkowski said.
Sales will generate revenue,
but the existence of the thrift
store will serve another
purpose: It will provide retail
training for consumers-or
"the guys," as they are

diversion

fsuig. cuts have meant the

By)r'n Ramreur of the Starke
Church of God by Faith hopes
that one program will not be
affected is one that has proven
to be quite successful in its
first year in Bradford County.
The Bradford County
Community Faith Center
received a $30,000 grant last
year from the Department of
Juvenile Justice to start a
neighborhood accountability
program. It is considered a
diversion program aimed at
youth who are first-time crime
offenders.
Ramseur said the program
has exceeded expectations.
"The program has to
continue," he said. "It's just
worthwhile."
The program's goal does not
focus on punishment. Instead,
members of a neighborhood
accountability board, who
work in conjunction with the
state attorney's office, stay in
contact with youth, making
sure they are aware of what
they did and how their actions
affected others.
This past year, 21 children
were enrolled in the program.


affectionately called by
Ruszkowski-who will
someday enter the workforce.
"It's going to be exciting,"
Ruszkowski said. "The guys


are really looking forward tb
it."
The thrift store will depend
on community donations, but
the community has already


shown a willingness to make
such donations, making past
fundraising sales in Arc's
parking lot a success.
"We've had good responses


to those," Ruszkowski said.
"We were really getting lots
and lots of donations."
Arc has already received
some donations for the thrift


store. Judging by past
donations, the store will have a
lot more than just books and

The Fourth of July conjures
up images of colorful displays
lighting up night skies, but the
holiday consists of so much
more than that in the
communities of Keystone
Heights and Lake Butler.
Keystone Heights hosts its
annual "Our Country Day"
celebration, which will
celebrate not only this nation's
independence, but Clay
County's 150h" year of
existence. The Lake Butler
Rotary Club, meanwhile,
offers visitors the chance to
soar sky high with the addition
of hot air-balloon rides to a
day jammed pack with events.
As is usually the case in
Keystone, the celebration does
not wait until July 4 to begin.
A street dance will be held in
the parking lot of Keystone
Village Plaza on S.R. 100 from
7:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. The
band Crisis will play from 8
p.m. until the event's
conclusion.
The city's Theme Park will
feature arts and crafts vendors
and food from 9 a.m. until 4:30
p.m. on July 4, while Nature
Park on the opposite side of
S.R. 21 will host displays,
civic groups and
demonstrations celebrating
Clay County's 150 years. A
Civil War military display will
also be featured at Nature
Park, while local volunteers
will meander through the event
in period costumes.
A children's fun zone will
be located at Nature Park, as
well, while children are the
participants in an annual event
at Theme Park-the. baby
crawl, which is scheduled for
10 a.m.
Music is a big part of this
year's festivities. Three bands
will be playing at Keystone
Beach: Slap Happy from 9
a.m. until 11 a.m., 6 t Street'
Rhythm and Blues from 12
p.m. until 2 p.m., and

No uniforms
for school!
Dear Editor:
I was surprised to read that
our school administrators and
board members are
considering school uniforms as
a band-aid solution to major
issues like school violence,
socioeconomic inequality,
distraction, and low academic
achievement that can't be
solved by making everyone
dress alike. I expect
educational leaders to use
empirical research to make
policy decisions rather than
anecdotal evidence and
personal theories. What a
wonderful lesson it would be
for Bradford County students
:to see their educational leaders
engage in a scholarly process
to make policy decisions
regarding the district dress
code!
Most proponents of
mandatory school uniform
policies base their views on the
reported results of the Long
Beach Unified School District
(LBUSD) in California. While
the LBUSD claims that school
uniforms were the cause of
many positive outcomes, the
institution of their uniform
policy occurred concurrently
with_-other school programs
aimed at affecting educational
outcomes. From a
methodological standpoint, it
then became impossible to
establish a __.causeeffect-
r- afi--liip- between school
uniforms and the outcomes
with so many confounding
variables.
Empirical studies show very
small effects, no. effects, and
even negative effects of school
uniforms on the outcomes our
county wants to affect (e.g.,
http://www.members.tripod>c
om/rockqu/uni form.htm).
Brunsma's "The School
Uniform Movement and What
It Tells Us About American
Education: A Symbolic
Crusade" is- an excellent
resource for educational
leaders who are considering
implementing school uniform
policies.
In addition to the research
evidence, it is unreasonable to
believe that a single, simplistic
intervention will prove to be
the solution to our school
district's woes. The belief that
school uniforms will somehow
lessen some students'
personality-based tendencies
toward violent behavior is
unfounded. It is irrational to
believe that wearing uniforms
will somehow erase inequality
or destroy cliques. Increasing
academic engagement and
performance is far more
complex than making students
wear polo shirts and' khaki
pants. School administrators
who believe that enforcement
of a school uniform policy will
be easier than enforcing' the
current dress code are kidding
themselves--enforcement is.
the issue rather than the
clothing. Lastly, only the
uninformed believe that
uniforms will result in cost
savings for parents. School
uniforms are not functional for
most children outside of
school, so parents will end up
buying and laundering
additional clothing worn when
children come home from
school.
The unspoken message
behind school uniform
policies-that the government
.--J- -aright-..o-take-awayra
citizen's rights to make basic,
personal decisions-seems to
contrast with the freedoms our
society values. I see the school
as a microcosm of the
complex, diverse world in
which our graduates will be
expected to function. I hope
that our school board will
consider a dress code policy
that aligns with the emerging

Dress code

Dear Editor:
As a parent and taxpayer o
this county, I am somewhat
surprised by the article fromn
last week's paper regarding the
new dress code policy fo
sixth-eighth graders in ou
school system. If my memory
serves me right, it was onl
three weeks ago that thi
proposed 2008-2009 dres;
code was published so tha
parents could "be well aware
and informed" of the changes
Yet, after three weeks, another
dress code has been proposed
and published so that the
parents are informed of the
changes "again." My family is
a two-income family o
average earnings. My family
and I do more than our fair
share when it comes to
furnishing school supplies and
other amenities for school
functions. Families are asked
to provide crayons, tissues,
hand sanitizer and other items
Now it seems that we are
going to. be asked to provide
--schiool uniforms for our
children. Even if it is at
minimal costs, it is a cost that I
don't want to pay and don't
feel that we should pay.
If some school
administrators don't enforce
the current dress code, then
why implement a new one? If
a male administrator feels
uncomfortable by addressing
the matter with a female
student, then have a female

More on
uniforms
Dear Editor:
I read your article in the
newspaper last week regarding
the school dress code for
middle school. I have two
children in public school, one
of which is physically
handicapped. My child, due to
his limited ability to do so,
would have difficulty
conforming to the dress code
that is being proposed.
Even if the school were to
make exceptions for a child
with special circumstances,
that child is going to feel
different by the fact that
everyone around him is
"neatly" dressed and then there
is him. Not only will my child
be different because of his
disability, he will now be
different in how he is dressed
compared to the other students
in his school (with the
exception of the students who
may be exempt for the same
reasons.)
Both of our children are well
rounded, well-mannered
students that have no
disciplinary problems in the
school system and this does
not stem from them wearing
polo shirts or khakis. It stems
from the home environment


and family life.
If the school board wants to
make a difference in the
learning environment of the
school, implement new family-
oriented programs and offer a
wider range of student activity
programs. Penalize those who
,do not follow the current dress
code instead of enforcing a
new one on my children.
You may not think that a
child is at school to be creative
but rather to learn. However,
by not allowing our children to
be somewhat "creative" and
individual, you are not
encouraging a learning
environment, you are creating
somewhat of an
institutionalized feeling that
some kids may rebel against.
Creativity is a party of
learning, especially with
music/art classes. Aren't these
important, too?
As far as protecting them
from "status" tensions with
regard to their clothing. How
fair is it to raise them in
uniforms from the time they
are in elementary school until
they graduate to only learn that
life is not fair and things are

Correction
The obituary of James
Thomas Lawson, which
appeared in the June 12
edition, neglected to list the
name of surviving son-in-law
Tom Harding, husband of
Lawson's daughter Aliese
Harding of Odenton, Md. We
regret the omission.
According to our obituary
format, in-laws are not;
normally listed, but because
another in-law was mentioned
in Lawson's obituary, we
agree with the family that
Harding's omission warrants
correction.

Two arrests
made in
swamp
The scenario leading to the
apprehension and arrest of a
suspect wanted in three
counties on warrants had all
the excitement of a television
show.
On June 25 at
approximately 7 p.m., the
Starke Police Department
received information on the
location of Lemuel Cooper.
Cooper was wanted on
warrants in Clay, Bradford and
Alachua counties:
Cooper was travelling with
two other people in a Mazda
that was seen by Sgt. Matt
Watson in the area of Water
Street and S.R. 100.
A traffic stop was initiated
but the vehicle fled eastbound
toward Keystone Heights. Sgt.
Watson decided to terminate
the chase when the pursuit
turned west onto C.R. 18.
i Capt. Harvey Rhoden was
'in position in front of the
pursuit with emergency lights
engaged when the suspect
vehicle approached at a high
Rate of speed. The suspect
vehicle lost control and crashed
into Capt. Rhoden's parked
patrol vehicle, resulting in
major darfage.
Joshua Harvey Hutchinson,
the driver of the Mazda, and
o Cooper fled on foot from the
Crash into an area known as the
Santa Fe Swamp. A third
occupant, Tessi Sharnez
Cooper, 19, of Starke was
arrested at the scene for breach
of peace, disorderly conduct.
Starke K-9 Sgt. Ricky
r Crews and his K-9 Ori
responded to the scene and
began searching for the
subjects in the dense woods.
"The Department of Corrections
deployed K-9 officers Lt.
Shawn Swain, Sgt. Eric Hall
and Sgt. Sam Norris with
bloodhound Shelby to assist
with the search.
Alachua's Joint Aviation
Unit responded and, with the
use of the FLIR system and
the tracking K-9s, found the
subjects hiding several miles
from the crash scene. Officers
physically apprehended Cooper
who resisted arrest with
violence. Hutchinson, 20, of
tGainesville, was taken into
: custody'without incident.
Due to the dense woods and
the suspect's injuries, a
helicopter evacuation was
requested. The U.S. Coast
Guard responded and conducted
the difficult task of a hoist
extraction of Cooper. He was
then transported to Shands UF
where he was treated for a
broken arm and numerous
punctures from the K-9. He
was released to the Bradford
County Jail.


One of the DOC officers
sustained minor injury from
the extreme conditions and K-9
Shelby needed IV-injected
fluids after tracking the
suspects for over three miles in
the dense woods. They were
both extracted by he Coast
Guard helicopter.
The K-9 tracking teams
stated the swamp underbrush
off Southwest 11th Street was
as thick as they had ever
encountered, according to
Starke Police Lt. Barry
Warren.
Lemuel Lender Cooper, 20,
of Melrose was charged with
resisting arrest with violence
(striking Sgt. Crews numerous
times as he attempted to
handcuff him), striking a
police K-9 (numerous times),
two counts of violation of
probation and failure to appear.
Bond was set at $10,000 on
the new charges. No bond was
set on the warrant charges.
Hutchinson was charged
with leaving the scene of an
accident involving $20,000 in
damages and reckless driving,
according to Florida Highway
Patrol Lt. K. Blom. He was
released from custody after
surety bonds totalling $6,000
were posted.
Tessi Cooper was released
after a $1,000 surety bond was
posted.

Man arrested
for fleeing
officers
Sabione Kali Reddick, 25,
of Gainesville was arrested
June 29 by Bradford Sgt. R.
W. White. for fleeing
attempting to elude law
enforcement, resisting without
violence and speeding.
Reddick, driving a 1998
Mercury, was northbound on
U.S. 301 at 4:23 a.m.,
according to Sgt. White. The
vehicle was travelling
northbound at 95 mph in a 45
mph zone. When the deputy
attempted to catch the vehicle,
its speed was increased to over
100 mph, Sgt. White said.
Deputy Stephen Bivins joined
the chase. Deputies finally
caught and blocked the
speeding vehicle in a parking
lot in Lawtey, Sgt. White said.
The driver refused orders and
a Taser was used to bring him
into compliance with the


orders, Sgt. White said.
Reddick was released from

Union couple
arrested for
stealing
A Union couple were
arrested June 25 for stealing
wire from a home.
Gary Lee Atkins, 23, of
Worthington Springs and
Carolyn Rebecca Hamm, 22,
of Lake Butler were charged by
Deputy Jerry Feltner with
burglary of an unoccupied
dwelling.
An investigation of a
pickup truck at an abandoned
home on S.R. 121 led to their
arrest. A neighbor reported
seeing the truck and
questioning Hamm and Atkins
about being in the *house,
Deputy Feltmer said.
Hamm shoved the neighbor
as she and Atkins fled the
scene, Deputy Feltner said.
Apparently Atkins and
Hamm had been stripping wire
from the walls of the residence.
It was learned they had been
gathering copper and junk for
the past three months and
selling it to different locations
in Lake City, Deputy Feltner
said.
Atkins and Hamm were
located and placed under arrest.
Hamm was additionally
charged with battery.


Starke
woman faces
drug charge
Christina Michelle Reed,
33, of Starke was arrested June
25 after fleeing deputies.
Just after noon Reed's
vehicle was stopped on U.S.
301 and Northeast 185th Street
for a minor traffic infraction,
Bradford Cpl. Thomas Sapp
said. While the deputy was
running a license check, Reed
pulled away and began fleeing.
She was chased to Ash Street
with speeds exceeding 85 mph,
Cpl. Sapp said. When Reed
reached Ash Street, she left the
vehicle and ran into a
residence. She was ordered to
stop, but did not comply. A
Taser was deployed into Reed's
back, and she was taken into
custody, Cpl. Sapp said.
After transporting Reed to
jail, the officer found
approximately 27 grams of
MDMA (Ecstasy) in the rear
compartment of the vehicle
where Reed had been sitting.
An anonymous tip had been
received that Reed was
transporting Ecstasy into the
Starke area, Cpl. Sapp said.
Reed was charged with
fleeing attempting to elude law
enforcement, trafficking in
Ecstasy and resisting an officer
without violence, Cpl. Sapp
said. She was released from
custody after a $25,000 surety
bond was posted.

Hatcher
speaks on
uniform issue
Dear Editor:
On June 23d, the Bradford
County School Board voted to
approve to pilot a uniform
dress code at Bradford Middle
School. There has been mixed
response to this vote. While
the vast majority is pleased
with this decision, some are
opposed and others desired
input in the process. We did
not intend for anyone to miss
the opportunity to share your
opinion. While the Telegraph
deadline was missed, we had
WEAG air the board workshop
time and date several times a
day for almost a week,
announcing that uniforms were
on the agenda. We were
hopeful that most of you
would hear about the
opportunity. We did have
some show up in support of the
dress code proposal at that
meeting. To those who missed
it, we do apologize.
While this proposal was
brought to us recently we did
look at the timing for parent
purchases, cost, school safety,
n. and research on uniforms. We
knew parents would begin
buying school clothes fora
August, so we had to move
forward as quickly as possible.
Finding studies online with
-actual data was limited to
NAESP (National Association
of Elementary School
Principal) serving all
elementary and elementary
principals. The primary source
of data has come from surveys
of staff, parents, and students.
With cost rising weekly at
this time, we knew that this
was an important issue.
According to USA Today, Oct.
15, 1998, parents spent an
average of $185 per child
buying non-uniform clothing
in 1998, compared with -an
average of $104 spent .per
"child to purchase uniforms.
Costs today are higher and still
rising; therefore any savings
will benefit families.
School safety is always a
priority for the BCSB. An
article from Education Week
by Jessica Portner, Jan. 21,
1998 stated'that since the Long
Beach Unified School District
in California implemented a
system-wide uniform policy in
1994, assaults in grades K-8
have decreased by 85 percent.
Results of NAESP's
February 2000, telephone
survey of 755 principals
nationwide showed that one in
five (21%) public schools had
uniform policies. Regardless of
whether or not they had
uniforms in their. schools,
principals reported positive
effects on the following:
school image in the
community (84%), classroom
discipline (79%), peer pressure
(76%), school spirit (72%),
concentration on schoolwork
(67%) and student safety
(62%)
Similar survey data showed
that 75 percent of parents and
89 percent of staff supported
uniforms and believed they
decrease violence, theft and
gang activity.. .Although only
15 percent of students
supported uniforms, 59 percent
agreed that "school--uniforms
help-..chool officials identify
trespassers on campus," This is
attribute the positive results
solely to a uniform policy, our
administrators recommended
this policy and are willing to
take a stand on its value.
They, like those in the survey
above, believe that this will
benefit the students in our
school system. It is these same
individuals who are willing to
do the hard work to ensure that
it will be implemented fairly
and consistently, therefore we
need to trust the experience
and knowledge of our school
leaders and support this
program for the goods of our
children
We value your input at the
next Bradford County School
Board Meeting on Monday,
June 14 with the public
hearirii at 5:01 and the board
m!::.tin' at 6:30.
Respectfully,
Harry M. Hatcher, III

freedoms; but, we also have
the right to. keep and bear
arms.- There are some
lawmakers in Washington and
in our own state capital who
would love to take that right
away from all of us.
There are many politicians
who have an appetite for
power. These politically
inclined dilemma characters
will seek every opportunity to
take your legal handgun away
from you. Do these error
graduates believe their narrow
-minded world would be safer
if all law abiding citizens gave
up their pistols. Most all
Americans want the right to
protect their family and
property, or at least have a
fighting chance to save their
lives.
If we let these elected or
appointed politicians rewrite
our Constitution because of
personal beliefs, it would be
down right outrageous and
illegal. The fact is all states
threatening to deprive their
citizens of the right to bear
arms are also depriving them
of their Constitutional right.
We know that guns don't kill
people, people kill people with
guns; people kill people with
knives, fists, and clubs, even
poison. The sad fact is that
some people just kill people
with or without guns;- If these
lawmakers have their way only
the people who kill people and
rob us blind will do so without
fear.
Recently the U.S. Supreme
Court agreed that our Second
Amendment right should be
upheld by all States, thus


. giving most law-abiding
citizens the right to pack heat.
With all of this said, I have
always believed that strict gun
control laws are still needed
just to ensure that felons and
other persons with behavioral
problems can't legally buy or
own a weapon of any kind.
The ruling last week by the
High Court was just and fair.
The Second Amendment of the
Constitution set forth by our
ancestors is clear, we as
American citizens have the
irrevocable right to keep and
bear arms.
Thank you.

BC wasting

Dear Editor:
I ate lunch at Henry and
Ernie's sandwich shop today
and there was a Bradford
County Deputy also eating
lunch there.
When I went to leave I
noticed that her patrol car was
running in the parking lot.
There was no K-9 unit nor
was there a prisoner in the
back. The car was. left- on--
"so' I~yto keep the interior cool
while this person has lunch.
The deputies in this county
already get to drive their squad
cars home. I have also seen
deputies dropping their kids
off at school using the county-
owned, taxpayer-paid-for cars.

I would like to think tnat this
community would be putting
forth an effort to save money
and the environment, but
apparently not.
Please keep this issue in
mind when you choose your
next sheriff.
