Fay on


the way"

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor -

Bradford County Emergency
Management Director Brian Johns
is calling it the most unpredictable
storm he's ever seen.
As of press time Tuesday, Tropical
Storm -Fay's projected path had
taken a dramatic turn. Originally
expected to reenter the state around
Jacksonville once it had crossed_
South Florida and exited back into
the Atlantic, the storm's most likely
path was redrawn to renter around St.
Johns County on Thursday morning.
If that path proves true, the' brunt
of the storm will pass through Clay
County and just north of Bradford
sometime Thursday evening.
While Bradford would have
experienced effects from the storm
either way, Johns reported that
estimated rainfall for the county had
risen from 4-6 inches to 10 inches,
and expected wind strength grew-
from 30 mph to 58 mph:
What's more, the storm may have
reached hurricane strength before it
makes landfall again.
According to Johns, 10 inches
of rain, or even a lesser amount,
could result in significant flooding,
depending on how quickly it comes.
Winds at that speed are expected to
cause some damage. Trees will be
down and roads will be blocked,
Johns said. Power outages are also
possible.
But as Johns said, Fay is
unpredictable.
Classes in public schools were
not cancelled on Wednesday, but
an announcement about Thursday
classes was not due until after press
time. Santa Fe College students went
to class Wednesday as well and the
school is keeping the student body
and staff up to date via its Web site,
www.sfcc.edu.
Emergency management has been
monitoring the tropical storm, and
Johns said the county is prepared.
Conference calls were taking place -
with the regional weather service at
least three times each day. Sandbags.
have been available since Tuesday
morning, and Johns said people
in low-lying areas should take the
necessary precautions to protect
their property.
Shelter workers are on call,
but none of the shelters had been
*opened on Tuesday. An extra crew
has been added to help move trees if
necessary, Johns said.
If schools remain open but rain
makes some roads impassable, Johns
said bus routes will be altered and
parents told where to take their kids
to be picked up.
Residents should stay tuned to
local radio and television stations
for the latest on Tropical Storm
Fay. Questions and concerns can
be directed to the emergency
'management office at (904) 966-
6336.
Residents are asked not, to call
,911 to report power outages. Outage
reports should be directed to the
electric service provider. City of
Starke utility customers should call
(904) 964-5027 during business
hours, and (904) 966-6161 after
hours.

Hampton, Starke, FHP win in challenge


Hampton Police Department is
the top agency and has the top
officer among agencies its size,
according to the Florida Department
of Transportation.
Officer Steven Donaldson was
named Officer of the Year last Friday,
and Hampton Police Department won
first place in Municipal Category 1,
in which it was competing with
other police departments its size.
For the recognition, the police
department was awarded $12,000 in
traffic safety equipment. Donaldson
was also allowed to participate in
a drawing for two fully equipped
police vehicles-and won a 2008
Chevy Impala Super Sport of his
agency. The car comes with digital
in-car video,-a directional radar unit
and bumper-to-bumper red and blue
lights.
.The Law Enforcement Challenge
is a .competition between law
enforcement agencies and is
divided into four groups including
* municipalities, universities, sheriffs'
offices and the Florida Highway
Patrol. The groups are further
divided into small, medium and large
agencies based upon the number of
officers at the agency. The categories
for the competition include citations,
pre-and post-seatbelt enforcement,
officer training, crash data arid
public/media education.
The challenge recognizes and
rewards the most comprehensive
traffic safety programs in Florida
instituted by law enforcement
agencies to educate the public
about occupant protection, impaired
driving, aggressive driving and other
areas of traffic safety to reduce
crashes and injuries. Research
shows that an increase in traffic
enforcement results in a decrease in
motor vehicle crashes, injuries and
fatalities.
Hampton Police Chief John
Hodges thanked the Starke Police
Department for assisting with
Hampton's traffic safety program,
including cooperating with combined


DUI checkpoints and lending traffic
safety equipment.
Starke performed well in the law
enforcement challenge as well. Chief
.Gordon Smith is announced that the
Starke Police Department won first
place in this year's Law Enforcement
Challenge for municipal agencies its
size. It is the second time the Starke
department has obtained the honor
of the first place, and it has placed
in the top three multiple times in the
past. In 2004 the police department
not only placed first in Florida,
it subsequently placed third-in the
nation and won a Ford truck.
Like Hampton, Starke was also
awarded $12,000 in traffic safety
equipment.
"The men and women of the
Starke Police Department work


hard to make our city one that is
safe for everyone, and it is very
gratifying to see all our hard work
acknowledged," Smith said.
Florida Highway Patrol's Troop
G was once again recognized as the
Top Troop in the state. Troop G's
Motor Squad was also selected as
the Best in the State among troops
its size in a Florida Motor Unit
Challenge.
Each of the FHP's 10 geographic
troops is judged by an independent
panel of national traffic safety experts
on five criteria: policy, training,
public information, enforcement and
effectiveness. This is the fifth time
Troop G has been chosen as the top
troop in the state since the program
began in 2000.
This is the first year of the Florida


Motor Unit Challenge, which was
developed by FDOT to recognize the
significant accomplishments of the
many motor squads around the state.
These specialized enforcement units
are capable of diverse assignments
and have proven to be beneficial: in
their ability to easily access traffic
crash scenes and enforce traffic laws
on congested roadways. These motdr
units were judged in three categorieS:
policy and guidelines, enforcement
activity, and effectiveness of efforts.
Troop G's motor squad was ranked
No. I by the panel of judges.
"The safety of our community' is
our top priority," said Major Grady
Carrick, troop commander. "We are
thrilled to be recognized for the hard
work and dedication of our officers
toward achieving this goal."

Raises budgeted for city of Starke employees


BY MARK:J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Money to fund raises for
pity employees was found in
the second draft of the city of
Stake's 2008-09 budget.
.That includes a 3 percent
across the board raise for most
employees, but Fire Chief Tom
Rowe scored a salary bump as
well. .
A 3 percent raise will cost,
the city an additional $120,000,
:according to City Clerk Linda
Johns.
Commissioner Wilbur
Waters said he would like to
see a raise of at least 3 percent,
even if that meant cutting
other areas, because the city's
employees in all departments
can go elsewhere and make
movie money. Twenty-five
thousand dollars was found
V' very quickly .. when city
commissioners announced they
.would not be paying the county
sheriff for animal control
services in the coming year.
..-.-Operations Manager Ric.ky
Thompson then said there was
'enough money in utilities-a
$117,000 surplus-to offer a
three percent raise and match
the raise county employees
-4ill receive next year. It boosts
*morale, he said.
Waters also suggested
raising Rowe's salary from
$47,800 to $52,000 to bring it
in-line with other department
heads. That would constitute
a raise ,of nearly .9 percent.
Thompson said transferring
his responsibility as the city's
safety director to Rowe would
warrant the salary increase.
Commissioner. Carolyn


Spoonersaidtheotherdirectors'
salaries are based on longevity
in those positions, but Rowe
said if he had continued as
assistant chief, he would be
making close to $60,000 now,
given the. time he spent in that
position. He said he'd even be
willing to step down as chief if
that meant resuming his prior
pay.
That' won't,' be necessary,
ho6vever. 'The commission
pulled the money from
other line items in the fire
department budget to provide
Rowe the raise,.
Since the requests came
. ut of the city commission's
second budget workshop, the
salary and benefit-related cost
'increases had not been added
to the proposed budget .for'
2008-09. The $20.2 million
budget city commissioners
perused Aug. 7 was down,
from $24.5 million last' year,
with the reduction taking place
primarily in the enterprise, or
utility, fund, which.wass-down"
$4-to $15 million.
'When the budget was first
looked at in July, the budget
for the utility fund for next.
year had yet, to be completed.
Like much of the rest of the city,
or Starke's budget for 2008-
09, very little was touched in
the enterprise fund, but there
are some notable differences,.
including revenue generated
by billing for- electricity.
The amount generated by
residential accounts was .
adjusted up $50,000 over last
year. The city also expects
to collect $131.000 more
from' commercial customers,
and Thompson called these


numbers conservative.
The city's annual power
purchase is up to $6.9 million,
less than $150,000 over what
was budgeted in the current
year. From the sale of that
power, the city will fund the
utility department, and provide
a $900,000 revenue transfer to
the general fund-the largest
transfer budgeted, at least in
*recent years'.
Revenue from other utilities
will also grow. Water revenue
shows an increase of nearly
$36,000 (residential and
commercial combined), and'
charges for sewer service -Will
increase of nearly $109,000,
primarily due to a 10 percent
increase in rates.
Commercial natural gas
sales are expected to be up
$30,000. Residential natural1
gas sales, however, could be
down by $50,000 based on the
budgeted projection;
As the sewer rehabilitation
project moves along, less will
be budgeted for its completion,.
which accounts for most, of
the. $4. million drop in' the.,
enterprise fund. That includes
less funding from grants,
low-interest loans and special
appropriation revenues,,
although $1.77 million in loan
revenue remains and a recent.
$200,000 grant for sewer
hook-ups has yet to show- up
in the budget.
Only $25,000 each has been
budgeted for infrastructure
improvements in Ihe'electric,
water, sewer, and. gas
departments. The city is paying
off debt related to this year's
electric voltage con% version
project to the lune of $180,000


annually, and $75,000 has
been budgeted to begin
repaying sewer rehab debt,
although the city still plans
to use state grants from the
Department of Environmental
Protection to repay the lion's
share of what it owes, which
amounts to millions of dollars.
The only capital outlay in the
electric department is $25,000
included for the purchase of a
forklift.
Expenses in, the general fund
have been refined since the first
.draft of the- budget,..with less
allocated for law enforcement'
and recreation, bringing the
overall general fund total
dowhnto $4.2 million, about
$200,000 less than the 2007
08 budget.
Funding: for a full-time'
secretarial .position was
removed from the recreation
budget, as was money set
aside for a future building
on Edwards Road. Other line -
items in payroll were fine-:
tuned. In addition to personnel'
and operational costs, the
budget contains a new grant
for imprboemenls at the.
Thomas Street park ($135,000)-
and carry forward funds for
improvements being made at
Ed% ards Road (-$11i4,000).
There is also $30,000 in
capital outlay money to buy a
transport %an, tractor and bush
hog remains, bringing the total
recreation budget to $857,650,
which is $126,000 less than
the department .bdgeted thsts
year and $159.000 less than
what was, previously proposed
for next year.
Thompson pointed out that
even, though city residents pay


higher taxes, county residents
who participate in the city's
recreation program are not
charged more in program
fees. He said children from
outside the city limits typically
outnumber those from inside
the city limits in a variety of
programs.
"You can tell who's using
it, and they're paying the
same thing," Thompson said.
"And, the county doesn't
contribute anything toward
recreation, and they don't
offer a recreation program, but
they're sure using it."
By interlocal agreement,,
the citf cannot. charge county
residents more to participate
in the program, but the,
city may seek to have that
provision removed when the
interlocal agreement comes
up for.renewal. None of the
program fee revenue comes
back to the city, however. The
".recreation board has. its own
budget funded by program
fees, which pass the cost of
pro hiding those programs.
Funding for the' Edwards
Rdad recreation complex
project has gone up and down ..
oser time, but now sits gt.zeo6.
Recreation Direcroi .Alica
McMillian said she knows cost
estimates for the project have
been -outrageous,. .but. if the
city doesn't continue adding
money' for the project, it will
never happen. Money will be
added back to the budget for
the complex. given "that the
sale of the old armory was
supposed to help fund the
project, but the city won't fund
a new clerical position until
it's in. a position to raise the


hiring freeze now in effect.
An adjustment downward in
the police department budget
for patrolmen's salaries and
benefits brings the proposed
budget for next year down
to $1.47 million, down from
$1.48 million in the first draft
and nearly $1.52 million in
this year's budget. The fire
department is another story; its
budget increased to $989,500
since the first budget workshop,
'which is almost $162,000
more than allocated this year.
The increase is primarily due
to increases in salary, overtime
and other personnel costs-an
attempt to reflect the actual
cost of those line items to the
department and avoid repeated
overruns.
During the workshop,
the commission discussed
diminishing profits for garbage
collection. 'Johns said the city
isn't billing customers as much
as it is being charged by the
garbage collection contractor,
even though the new contract
was, supposed to be more
affordable than the prior one;
that's why the city's profits
6-from garbage have gone away.
She said the city would either
have to raise customer rates or
live with having no profit from
the service. A meeting was set
with the contractor to discuss
this and other issues.
Although down to $20.2
million earlier this month, the
adjustments requested will
raise, the bottom line of the
2009 budget before the city's
first public hearing, which is
scheduled for Tuesday, Sept.
2, at 7 p.m.


Yard trash violators will be charged


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor'


When residents don't
comply with.\ard trash rules.
the city of Starke steps in, but
violators 'may -soon .-be' billed
for breaking the rules. .
Rules for yard trash pickup
include cutting branches and
-limbs to less than a specified
length and not mixing yard
trash with'other garbage. There
is also' a limit to how much
yard trash will picked up in a
single irip. City commissioners
have been frustrated that as
many times as the standards
are made known, there are
still violations, meaning the
,_-.garbage contractor will not
pick up those trash piles and
they are left there cluttering
the streets. Some piles have
even been tagged multiple
times for violations, with no
.. resulting action from those.
residents.
In an effort to keep the city
beautiful, the city has been
using its own truck to pick
up yard trash several times
a week. According to Mayor
Travis Woods, that costs the
city money-more so when
the trash piles it takes to the

told the board in a workshop
last week that the city has
two choices: citing individual
residents through code ,
enforcement or charging themi
'to:reimburse the city's costs.& A
Commissioner Wilbur
Waters asked why the garbage
contractor limited the size
of piles .to 2 cubic yards.
Operations Manager Ricky .
Thompson said that had been
the set limit for years. and,
was related to the size of
the, garbage contractor's rear
loader. Sometimes workers
will take more if they do not
have a full load, he said.
Unhappy with those limits,
however, Waters asked if
it would be feasible for the
city to back yard trash out
of the collection contract
and handle the collection
itself. Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner' said the concern
was having excess yard trash
collected consistently to
improve the city's appearance,
but fuel and other costs weren't
considered at the time the city
purchased a truck to assist in
yard trash collection.
Waters admitted that some
have taken advantage of the

city's willingness to pick up
those piles by leaving them
on. the road more frequently
and mixing multiple types of
trash. ,
A good thing has turned'
info a"headach6,"W'WteTs said"
Thompson said the benefit
of the city using its grapple
truck to collect yard trash is
knowing there won't be piles
garbage sitting on the side,
of the road for an indefinite
anrount of time. The city
would have to evaluate the
cost of doing so, making sure
it covered the entire city in a
day or two each week, he said,
and not charge for doing so.


In the end, there was a
consensus that residents
would npt be charged for limb
pickup, unless a pile contained
other garbage.'Those' residents
would be issued warnmgs, and
if thely'don't 6'ftiblyl'theiythey
would be charged via their
utility bills. This would extend
to any pickup for which the
city is charged for disposal,
'like tires, for example.
An ordinance to that effect
will be prepared for approval
of the commission.
Standards for disposal will
be sent out over the next six
months with utility bills.

Primary races will be decided Tuesday


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

This Tuesday, Aug. 26,
will be the moment of truth
for a number of public office
seekers.
The primary leading up to
the November general election
will take place. Only one race
in the county will be decided
definitively in the primary.
Voters in District 4 will select
their school board member in
the only nonpartisan race on
the primary ballot..
Those in Precincts 10A, 10B
and 11 will choose between
incumbent Vivian Chappell
and her challenger, Braxton
Britt Jr. The district has gone
with Chappell, a career nurse
and Bradford Arc advocate,
for the last four election
cycles, giving her 16 years
of experience on the school
board. She's said the quality
of education depends on the
leadership of experienced
policymakers. Britt announced
, he would challenge Chappell
in May. As president of the
Bradford County Pqp Warner
Association, he's worked with
a number of young people in
the county and said he. would
work to hold those in charge
responsible for the education
of the county's children.
Education is important on
this year's ballot. One of the
county's most high-profile
races is for superintendent of
schools. All of the candidates
for superintendent have
highlighted the need forchange
in localschoolsandhavespoken
frequently on the topics of
raising educational standards,
improving communication
with parents and making
public schools safer places to
educate children.
Registered Republicans
countywide have three
choices, all women with strong
backgrounds ; in. education.
Evelyn Chastain is a former
Bradford County School Board
member and teacher of the
)ear %%ho current) serves a'a
principal in Clay County. Beth
Moore has taught students,
from elementary to the
community college level and
has experience in counseling
and as a career specialist.
In 2006, she received her
doctoral degree in educational
leadership. Linda Sheffield
has a master's degree in
educational leadership and 28
years of teaching kids at all
levels of education in Bradford
County.
Democrats will choose
between Jim Biggs, a former
superintendent in the state
of Kentucky with a master's
degree who has spent recent
years heading up Communities
in Schools of Bradford County.'
His opponent, Rellen Clark,,
was born and raised in Lawtey.
With a master's degree in,'
elementary education, she
worked for the school* board
for 16 years and once headed
the districts first charter
school.
The top Republican and
top Democrat in .he. race
for superintendent will face
each other at the polls; in
November.
The same is true of the
candidates for sheriff. On
the Republican side is Mike
Juliaho, who oversaw this


area in the final years of his
25-year career with the Florida
Highway Patrol and has
promised quarterly meetings to
inform, and hear the concerns
of, the public when he becomes.
sheriff. He faces David Barnes,
who has stressed both his law
enforcement and military
experience in talking to voters.
All candidates claim they will
do the same things, he has said,
which is why voters must focus
on experience,' qualifications
and character when they go to
the polls.
Gordon Smith, running for
sheriff as a Democrat, has
stressed his familiarity with the
community and the successes
of his department during his
campaign. Police chief for the
city of Starke for the past
seven years, Smith has been
involved in law enforcement
in Bradford County for
the last 21 years, and has,
challenged anyone to explore
his record. His opponent for
the Democratic nomination
is Randall Zipperer, who
touts his 20 years of military
experience and his career in
law enforcement, which has
taken him from corrections to
the position of captain in the
sheriff's office. Zipperer has
said he can provide 'the kind
of innovative thinking needed
to run the sheriff's office
efficiently.
Only one of the three
contested county commission
seats will appear on the ballot.
Running as Republicans in
District 3 are businessman
Mark Santiago, attorney Dan
Sikes and Florida Air National
Guardsman Chuck Morrow.
Morrow' has said he wants to
see the people of the district
properly represented and apply
his military experience to the
job, while Santiago has talked
a lot of the need to plan for the
county's future and support
local businesses. Sikes said
he is best. suited for the office
because of his ability, to work
with leaders in Tallahassee for.
the benefit of the county.
Democrats running for the,
District 3 seat include Lila
Sellars, Who sees her election
to the office as the next logical
step in her much recognized
career as a community servant.
Running against her is Roy
Hart. The DuPont employee is
a man of few words publicly
who prefers, meeting with
residents one on one, and has
said he would remain readily
available to hear the concerns
of his constituents if elected
to office.
Republicans Janet Adkins
and Bobby Hart are seeking
to replace Aaron Bean in
the District 12 House of
Representatives race. Both
hail from Nassau County these
days, but Hart boasts a better
knowledge of, the district.
Having lived and worked
throughout it, the educator and
military reservist said no one
knows the district better than
'he does. Adkins, has served
on the Nassau County School
Board for nearly 10 years,
and ,has spent her campaign
traveling the district and
discussing her core values,
which ,she says includes
personal responsibility, high
standards, less government
and low. taxes. The winner
of the primary could be


considered the de facto winner
of the House seat, although
their name will appear on the
November ballot as two write-
in candidates qualified to run
for the office.
At the southern tip of the
county, Republican voters
will choose between three
candidates for the District
21 House seat: staunch
conservative Charles Van
Zant, health care administrator
Pat Freeman and Chris France,
prosecutor for the Seventh
Ju dica-Giuit. The winner
o' the race will face Democrat
Linda Myers in November.

'Fess' Jenkins a legend in
Starke's black community
Professor or "Fess" Jenkins,
as he was often called :by
his students and friends,:
began his life as the. son -of
a Georgia slave. The family'
name was actually Black,
but it was customary at that
time for slaves to adopt
the name of the owner, so
Jenkins became the family
name. Jenkins rose out of the
chains of his past to go far
beyond merely obtaining his
freedom. He was described as
a "man with education in his
blood, who taught everything
- practical things like how to
bud and graft trees, as well as
academic subjects like Latin
and higher math."
Jenkins was also known
as a man with high moral
standards and integrity. He
had the complete confidence
and respect of both the black
and white communities. When
he was not teaching school or
plowing his own land, he was
repairing electrical wircs or
power lines for the county or
playing his sousaphone in a


'a- new environment. Change
is a fearful thing for everyone
no. matter what race he
or, she i, born into. These
early stories- should not be
Understood to say that local
African-American leaders did
not want an equal education
for their children that has
always been one of their
primary concerns, as the story
,of RJE's birth illustrates.
It was June of 1965 before
the dust from all the national
legal battles had settled and
'31 African-American students
registered to attend previously
all-white Bradford schools.
At the time, the desegregation
plan allowed students to
register at any school, but
did not require black students
to attend previously all-white
schools.
Of the first 31 students
who crossed the racial lines,
18 went to Bradford High
School, nine went to Starke
Elementary, one went to
Southside Elementary and
three went to what is now
Lawtey Community School.
Thurston Elementary School,
the only other black school


- other than RJE in Starke
and Anderson Junior High in
Lawtey which remained in
operation in the county, was
closed in 1965. By 1966 118
black students had registered
to enter previously all-white
schools. That same year, five


period after the Civil War, he
was appointed to that position,
not elected. The first African-
American in Bradford County
to hold an elected political seat
was Robert Scott of Lawtey.
Scott was elected to the city
council in Lawtey in 1964


"Fess" Jenkins
played a major
role in the
education
of most of
Bradford's
black citizens.

r X,'


black teachers were asked to
,teach in schools that were
previously all white and five
vhite teachers were asked to
teach 'in schools that were
previously all black.
, In 1969 RJE High School
and grade school in Starke
and Anderson Junior High
School in Lawtey were
,still, operating and had only
black students. The county's
other schools were still
predominantly white. While
the courts had been happy to.
let the school system attempt
desegregation by leaving it
up to the parents of the school
children to decide where they
would attend school, it -is a
known truth that people will
likely want their children
to attend a school in their
own community rather than
travel even short distances to
another school.
The riots that were
occurring in other places
throughout the country, and
which were making headlines
all.'the time, also had parents
afraid 'to place their children
in that type of danger. No
violent "incidents occurred
in this county, however -
although there were rumors
of impending riots from time
to time.
Since allowing people to
make their own decisions'.
on the matter had not
accomplished the goal of the
courts, the county was still
listed in 1969 as being in
noncompliance with the court
order to desegregate the school
populations. Since the school
board was faced with bringing
the schools into compliance
or losing thousands of dollars
of federal school funding,,
the board closed RJE and
Anderson Junior High in 1970.
All students then attended the
other previously all-white
schools in the county.
Anderson Junior High was
eventually bought by the
state and is now Lawtey
Correctional Institution.

Road to political seats long
one for African-Americans
Although an African-
American (with a last name
of Blye) did serve on the
Bradford County Commission
during the Reconstruction


and was sworn in quietly,
although he had thought long
and hard about accepting the
position once he had won it.
With desegregation
. making the headlines on a
national basis, feelings
. over the election in Lawtey
were running hot. Lawtey
operated under an at-large
council system where several
candidates ran for the two
to three available seats each
election year. If three seats
were open, the top top three
vote-getters were awarded
those seats. This happened in
1964 and Scott was elected as
the third-highest vote-getter.
A cross was burned in his
front yard a short time after he
won the election. He received
threatening phone calls and
the Bradford County Sheriff's
Office placed guards at his
home in fear that someone
would 'attempt to. carry out
the threats being made against
him. Friends of the family
and black businessmen in the
Lawtey area also received
phone calls which threatened
Scott.
Threatening phone calls
continued for days. Scott
told a Telegraph reporter just
prior to Jan. 30, 1964, that
the threats had him concerned
for the welfare of his family.
Scott said he planned to
resign his seat at the council
meeting Feb. 3. However, the
responsibility he felt to his
community and to his race
must have outweighed his
fear .for his family's safety
because Scott did not resign
as expected. He held a seat
on the council for many years
,and even served as mayor
for a long stint beginning in
1975. At that time he was
the first African-American
to serve any Florida city as
mayor. Scott held his position
on the Lawtey council for
many years.

NAACP lawsuit paves way
to public office for other
African-Americans'
There was no other African-
American elected official in
the county until the 1980s
when the Bradford chapter
of the NAACP filed a suit
against the county and school
board. The suit claimed that


the county's style of election
and voter district lines made
it impossible for an African-
American to be elected to a
major political position. At
that time while a person
had to live within the district
he wanted to represent on the
county commission or school
board voters from all over
the county voted in each of
the district races in what was
termed an "at-large" election
system.
This meant the voters from
predominantly white districts
voted on candidates from
predominantly black districts.
After a judge ruled that the
issues in the lawsuit had merit,
a system of "single-member"
districts was set up.This meant
that. only the voters living
in a particular district voted
on the candidates running
for county commission
or school board from that
district. With the district lines
also redrawn to outline one
predominantly black district,
African-American candidates
would have a better chance of
holding a major public office.
Disagreements between the
school board and the county
on precisely how those district
lines should be drawn delayed
a final decision on redistricting
until June of 1986.
District one became the
county's predominantly
African-American district
with 53 percent of the
residents in 1986 being black.
The school board's seat for
district one was vacant since
Pat Spengler had died while
holding the office. Jimmie
Scott, who is ironically the
son of Robert Scott, qualified
for the election, but had no
opposition and became the
first African-American to
serve on the school board in
the county's history. In 1989
Scott was voted by his
fellow boardmembers as
chairman of the school board
and became the first African-
American toholdchairmanship
of a major governmental body
in Bradford County.
In October of 1988, the
county commission's seat for
district one was filled with that
board's firstAfrican-American
since Reconstruction times.
The Rev. Ross Chandler
took his place as the first


black to be elected to the
county commission (the
black commissioner
during Reconstruction was
appointed). Chandler later
served as chairman of that
board and became the first
African-American to hold
that designation as well.
Scott is now retired after
serving for years as an
accountant and comptroller
for Associated Minerals
in Green Cove Springs.
Chandler worked, in the paper
and timber industry and is
currently minister of the True
Vine Outreach Ministry in
Starke.

Starke also faced lawsuit
and redistricting
The NAACP filed a similar
suit against the city of Starke
in 1986. While both the county
and school board had elected
to change to single-member
districts and go through the
redistricting process without
contesting the suit in any
significant way, the city
decided to go to court.
It was the city's contention
at the time that an African-
American could be elected to
the Starke City Commission
under the system of election
which already existed.
City officials pointed to an
election in the late 1970s
which saw a local African-
American contractor, George
Holliday, come within 125
votes of defeating veteran
City Commissioner Vernon
Silcox. Officials contended
this meant African-Americans
could attain a seat on the
commission with the district
system as it was. Holliday had
not been successful in winning
that election, however, and
Starke had never previously
had an African-American
sitting on the commission.
The judge ruled in favor
of the NAACP in 1988 and
the city redrew its districts in
1989. District two in the city
became the predominantly
African-American district
and September of 1982 saw
Vernon Barber become the
first black to be elected to the
city commission.

LOST SONY CAMCORDER
My name is Libby Griffis and on May 10, 2008,
my daughter, Beth Griffis, and her husband, Matt,
were married at the Circle S Ranch in Lake Butler.
I left my DVD camcorder at the ranch and haven't
been able to find it. My name isn't on.the case, so
no one would know who-to return it to. It's a
Sony Digital Video Recorder, in a black case. If
you have located it, please call
Libby Griffis at (386) 431-1023.
This camcorder was a Christmas gift from my
husband and it will be a long time before he will
buy me another one. LOL

Page 12A TELEGRAPH August 14, 2008


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Developers who take down
more trees in the city of Starke
than they can replace will pay
into a tree mitigation fund
the city is establishing by
ordinance.
City Engineer Gary Sneddon
of Stone, Joca and Associates
said in the past developers
who did not have enough land
left to add back trees they've
removed during construction
would simply request a
variance from the city board
of adjustment, essentially
circumventing the requirements
of the existing tree ordinance.
Also, permitting requirements
under the current ordinance
are unclear, he said.
A proposed ordinance
clarifies the process. Permits
will be required for the removal
of protected trees, except
on single-family residential
properties. Originally, they,
too, were included in the
ordinance, but commissioners
s raised objections.
Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner didn't agree with
requiring permits of residential
property owners as long as
they took responsibility for
clearing the trees they remove,
and Mayor Travis Woods and
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
expressed similar concerns.
The city's' code enforcement
officer, George Jarosik,
disagreed, citing a case where
a homeowner removed three
trees, one 4 feet in diameter.
He said requiring permits
would keep "some people
from going nuts."
"If we were to let everyone
in the city do that, pretty soon
we're going to have no trees,"
Jarosik said.
Sneddon said requiring
a .permit could also prevent
fistfights between property
owners when the tree to be
removed sits on the property
line. In that case, approval
from both property owners
; would be required.
It was also argued that
inspections prior to tree
removal could help protect
city utility lines.
Spooner countered that
it seems like when specific
* situations pose problems,
a solution is designed that
impacts everyone, but
Sneddon said he believes that
language- contained in the
current ordinance pertaining to
protected trees already applies
to residential cases.
Still most commissioners
agreed single-family
residences should .be excluded
from the permit requirements
in the new ordinance.
"If it (the tree) is clearly on
my property and not interfering
with somebody else's, leave
me alone," Spooner said.
It really isn't situations
on individual residential
properties that pose most
of the problems, Operations
Manager Ricky Thompson
said. The issue really is tree
removal during multifamily
residential or commercial
development when trees are
not or cannot be, replaced
-according to code. That is why
the proposed ordinance creates
a fund that developers will pay
into when they cannot meet the
mitigation requirements of the
tree ordinance. Land cleared
for a. rrultifamily housing
development on Thomas
Street that never happened
was one example given. A
permit was never sought, and
now mitigation doesn't seem
likely. The construction of


Arby's is another example.
According to Woods, the
site plan contained existing
trees that have since been
removed, and the commission
wants the developer to pay
for that through the proposed
mitigation fund.
A committee would be
established to designate how
money in that fund should be
spent, including planting trees
on public property, purchasing
land to plant trees, maintaining
existing trees and providing
education about trees.
Initially, the funds could target
downtown beautification.
As required now,applications
for tree removal permits will
contain a survey showing
the location and identities of
trees being removed, relocated
and retained and a list of
trees by type and size that
summarizes the applicant's
removal and replacement
proposal, including a statement
explaining why any protected
tree is to be removed or
relocated. It will also show the
location of proposed buildings
and site improvements, and the
orientation shall be arranged
so as to preserve the maximum
number of trees possible.
Protected trees are native trees
with a trunk that is a minimum
of 8 inches in diameter at
breast height, or with multiple
trunks that includes at least

ALL
MAJOR
INSURANCE!
ACCEPTED!

Convenient
Hassle Fri


one trunk with a minimum
diameter.of 6 inches and with
trunks that have an aggregate
diameter of 12 inches. Some
trees are excluded, including
chinaberries, camphors and
Chinese tallows. There was a
possibility of adding pines and
palms to the exemption list,
but the commission rejected
that idea as well.
Inspections prior to tree
removal, during construction
and following landscaping
will be conducted. The current
mitigation formula requires
that for every inch in diameter
of trees lost, the developer
must replace one-third of that
amount. The commission is
raising that to an inch-for-
inch requirement, meaning
that every inch of tree width
lost must be mitigated.
Protected trees on the site
that are preserved can be used
toward meeting the mitigation
requirement. Otherwise they
must be replaced or paid for.
No application fee and no
replacement will be required
for permits to remove protected
trees that are dead, diseased
or deteriorated or those
with potential for damaging
property.
Changes will be made to
the proposed ordinance before
it is brought back to the
commission for approval.

Event raises $26,000
rase


in Test(
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Cancer survivors stood when
asked to do so, proving that the
diagnosis of the disease does
not necessarily mean the end
of life, yet Jill Hayes Teston
cannot stand. She lost her
battle to breast cancer on July
14, 2005.
However, the same spirit
Teston exhibited throughout
her battle lives on with the
annual Hold'em for Hope
poker tournament, auction and
dinner.
This year's event, which was
held Aug. 16 at Plantation
Oaks at Turkey Creek, raised
$26,000. That money will be
donated to the American
Cancer Society in conjunction
with the national "Making
Strides Against Breast Cancer"
event, which takes place in
October.


Allison Teston, Jill,
Hayes Teston's
daughter, sings for the
crowd following an
emotional speech by
her father, Mike Teston.

honor


Stacey Hayes, Testons"
sister and chairperson of the
Hold'em for Hope committee,
said the support for this year's
event was "awesome." More
than 280 people attended the
event, while more than 300
actually bought tickets.
Businesses and individuals
supplied a variety of items for
silent and live auctions, from
tickets to University of Florida
football games to an 18-carat
white gold pendant valued at
$13,650.
"You just can't thank people
enough," Hayes said.
In Hayes' words, the event,
which has been held the past
three years, started as an effort
to help heal the sorrow felt by
those close to Teston in a
positive manner, "as well as
trying to ease the suffering of
the ill effects of this terrible
disease."
And it is terrible. Many,
through early detection, can
overcome it, but there are
some sobering statistics when
it comes to breast cancer.
Teston's husband, Mike,
shared some of those numbers
with the crowd, saying that in
'the U.S., on average, a woman
'is diagnosed with breast cancer
every three minutes. Every 13
minutes, a woman dies
because of breast cancer.,
"Tonight, we're just doing a
little, small part to try to make.
those numbers go away," Mike
Teston.said.
As somber as those-statistics
are' Mike told the crowd he
did not want to paint a picture
of a "doom-and-gloom"
family. There were many ups
and downs during Jill's fight
with cancer, but his family-
which also consists of daughter
Allison and son Michael
Blaine-was, and still is,
happy.
That can be attributed to
Jill, Mike said. She never let
the disease break her spirit, he

Renaissance principal wants to work with community


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
There is a lot of history
surrounding the classrooms
that are occupied by Bradford
County's alternative school-
the Renaissance Center. New
principal Jason Jennings wants
- ..to embrace that history and, in
turn, hopes the -surrounding
community will embrace the
school.
The Renaissance Center is
located at what used to be the
RJE High School, the school
that served the African-
American community until
desegregation went into effect.
The school and its importance
in the community where it is
located have not been
forgotten-an RJE Alumni
Association and annual
homecoming celebration have
ensured that.
.Jennings feels that history is
important. A visitor can walk
into the office of the

Renaissance Center, sits in front of an RJE High
School history display.


Renaissance Center and see an
RJE history display.
Now, though, Jennings
hopes the members of the
community in which the
school is located help current
school students establish their
own bit of history. With the
help of Esther Kelly, who is
working as a community
relations person for the school,
Jennings is hoping members of
the community become
involved in helping students at
the Renaissance Center
develop a more positive
outlook on their lives when
they leave and return to, the
normal school setting. For
example, Jennings plans to
have periodic morning
assemblies that will include
community members who will
talk to the students and share
their experiences. '
"Hopefully, we're going to
accomplish some good things,"
Jennings said. "The ultimate
goal is for kids, when they
leave here, to have a new hope
and an understanding of some


of their talents and their gifts."
As Jennings sees it, the
alternative school is not an end
for students. It is a new
beginning.
"My goal is these kids will
leave here with a newv
perspective and with a new
vision on different
opportunities for them in life,"
Jennings said. "The sky's the
limit. There are options for
them.
"They have a fresh start
when they come here. When
they leave, they will go back to
their regular schools with that
new vision, and they will be
able to be successful. That's
my goal and hope for them."
Jennings is no stranger to
working in an alternative
school setting. He did so in
Columbus, Ga., for five years,
but his work with those
students was not confined to
the school setting. He took on
a role as a big brother to many
of the students, participating in
activities outside of school
such as playing basketball with


them and taking them fishing,
while also teaching them such
skills as communicating and
interviewing for a job.
Such personal involvement
in students' lives brings to
light a saying that Jennings
believes in: "Kids don't care
what you. know until they ''
know that you care."
Jennings has spent most of
.his time in Bradford Countyr
working at Lawtey
Community School, first as a
teacher and then as an assistant
principal. However, when the
position at the Renaissance
Center became available when
Lisa Graham moved to
Bradford High School,
Jennings was interested.
"This is the type of
population I have a strong
passion for," Jennings said.

Saving gas, money and lives


There was a time in the long ago that
A'mericans were united in saving the
American way of life and were willing to
accept a tightening of the proverbial belt
to do their individual parts in defeating
a common enemy. Sure, there was
some grumbling, an inherent right of a
free people, but there was outstanding
unanimity and compliance with directives
related to the war effort. During World
War II, the vast majority of Americans
adhered to the rationing of virtually all
consumer products, including food, tires
and gasoline...
For nonessential driving, gasoline was
rationed to three gallons a week, and'
the rationing boards scrutinized requests
for new tires very carefully. Access to
gasoline was made available to everyone,
based on his or her need as it related to
the war effort. In rural areas, such as
Bradford and Union counties, pulpwood
producers, logging crews and farmers
often had surplus gas tickets, which they
would share with friends, relatives and
neighbors. Tickets would oftentimes
accrue during wet seasons when workers
couldn't get into the woods, or when a
surplus of wood pulp would accumulate
and the mills would.quit buying until the
excess wood was reduced. Overall though,
the rationing program was remarkably
successful in conserving materials.
In the summer of 1941, the Japanese
had overrun the rubber plantations in
Indonesia, effectively cutting -off the
supply of natural rubber, a serious blow
to the American war effort. Gasoline
rationing was instituted .Dec. 27,
1941 on the East Coast and extended
nationwide later in 1942, not to save
gas, but to conserve rubber. The nation's
finest scientific minds turned to making
a replacement rubber. Once again, the
nation was imminently successful in
filling a need with a new product, in this
case, better than the product it replaced,
and natural rubber has never reclaimed its
position in the manufacture of tires. With_
the rationing of tires and gasoline came a
reduction in speed limits to further reduce
the use of rubber and 'the unintended
consequence of saving lives.
In the early 1970s, Americans got a
wake-up call when gasoline was limited
by oil producing countries and the price,
skyrocketed; long lines became the norm
at service stations as motorists waited to
fill their tanks, but the American Congress
failed to act, passing up an opportunity to
have made the nation independent of
foreign oil. Americans are now seeing
residents of oil producing countries rollifiig
in wealthh, building infrastructure second
to none around the world as oil companies
are enjoying historic profits and rejoicing


at the United States' financial situation.
Those states enjoying America's
discomfiture should restrain their glee
and obscene profits because the situation
won't always be thus. Thousands of
people in many fields are working at
a feverish pace to find a new fuel for
heating and transportation, and success
is on the drawing boards. Remember
whale oil? There was a time when the
populace thought a substitute for whale
oil would never occur, but the discovery
of petroleum irl Pennsylvania (in 1859)
was the beginning of the end for whale
oil. The displacement of petroleum
products for heating and transportation
will not be accomplished by any one
product, but will consist of solar power,
wind power, bio-fuels, hydrogen, nuclear
energy, long-life batteries and possibly
some source not currently known. The
American can-do spirit continues to work
for new and better products, and the,end
isn't in sight.,
The United States appears to be in a
crisis mode with real estate in the tank
and energy in big trouble, both as result
of sheer greed, but as the public comes
to understand the root cause, adjustments
will bring about the necessary corrections.
Developers and financiers brought
:about the housing crisis and attendant
foreclosures, by making bad loans.
Energy problems are largely the result
of a lackadaisical attitude by Congress in
prohibiting the drilling of oil wells and
construction of refineries. No, Congress
didn't pass legislation precluding drilling
or building refineries. It merely placed
essentially all oil-bearing lands off
limits and destroyed incentives to build
refineries by imposing a requirement
for red tape beyond the possibility of
compliance.
Many knowledgeable people are
now advocating the removal of bans
against drilling off shore and promising
areas in the continental United, States,':
including ,Alaska., Opponents remain
adamant against opening restricted areas
to drilling, but they have nothing to
offer as a replacement fuel and will
\be forced to compromise, even though
an immediate approval to drill will not
produce oil quickly. This winter promises
to be long, cold and very expensive for
many Americans.
Next week a bold recommendation
will be offered to reduce the individual's
cost of transportation and save lives at
the same time. The plan should- receive
Congressional approval, but voluntary
compliance by individuals would result
in individual savings and lives.

"Those are things I want to

Jennings said every student

leaving. In between, Jennings
said he expects students to
develop plans for their futures.
The -involvement of
Renaissance Center staff in
students' lives will not end
when students, return to the
regular school setting.
"We will be doing follow-up
visits to the local schools once
they leave here to make sure.
they are being successful,"
Jennings said.
Hopefully, when students
return to the regular school
setting, it will be a seamless
transition. 'Jennings said he
wants to ensure that students'
studies at the Renaissance
..Center are aligaed- with-what
they would be doing in the
regular school setting. An Ed
Options program will assist in
that, allowing students who are
failing a class or missing
credits to work on computers
in "test" rooms.
Not every student will need
to take advantage of that
program, which is what makes
working at the Renaissance
Center a challenge. Each
student at the center is unique
in regards to his or her course
requirements and the
circumstances that brought
him or her to the center.
"The main thing is to be
flexible and to realize that
every kid is an individual and
different," Jennings said.
"We're going to have to
evaluate each child as they
come in."
Jennings feels the staff at the
Renaissance Center-which
includes Bridge teacher Henry
Anderson, middle school
teacher Jeremiah Johnson, high
school teacher Stephanie Van
Den Hurk, ESE teacher Lisa
Powers and Kelly-is perfectly
capable of handling such
challenges.
The staff, however, is just a
part of the equation, Jennings
said. He referenced the saying,
"It takes a village to raise a
child." Jennings truly believes


that. That's why he wants
parent involvement and
community involvement.

would bring joy to all you
would meet. Someone whose
smile was bright like the sun,
He needed to find just the
perfect one. God smiled on our
home as. He listened to you talk
and knew in a instant the love
you would bring. He Watched as
you brightened the room you
were in and saw just how
quickly new friends you could -
win. God also knew- that many
hearts would break when He
realized it was you that He must
take, As you walked through'
Heaven's open door to be God's
special angel forever more, God-
knew all the love you held in
your heart would be with us till
we were no longer apart.'
We thank God for our precious
memories, but we still miss you
so very much.

Hoard returns to a job


that gives him 'pleasure'


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
There is no monster at
Southside Elementary School.
That may be difficult -for
some of the school's youngest
Children to believe. Assistant
Principal Steve Hoard admits
he can be an intimidating
presence upon first glance.
"I have that effect initially,"
Hoard said. "When you're 6-7,
S360 pounds" and you walk into
a room, they think you're nine
feet tall. They think Godzilla
Sor King Kong's walked into
the room."
In time, though,, those
children will approach Hoard
and high-five him or, if they're
Gators fans, they'll perform
the Gator Chomp, because
they will eventually learn
Hoard is a Georgia Bulldogs
fan. Hoard knows this will all
come to pass because he's seen
it before.
Hoard is the new assistant
principal at Southside this
year, but he is no stranger to
,the school. He served in the
same capacity at the school
during the 2005-06 school
year, and he's excited to be
back. Hoard considers it an
honor to be a part of the
school's staff.
"They make it a pleasure to
be ;here," Hoard said. "I've
never, in 28 years, been around
a group of people who work as
-hard or care as much about
kids as these people do."
Prior to his first stint as
assistant principal at
*,Southside, Hoard's
background in education
consisted of working with
older children. He had worked
with younger children through
the parks and recreation
department in Tallahassee, but
he admitted that he would'v.e
liked to stay at .Bradford High
School for his first job in
administration. That was an
environment Hoard was
familiar with, having worked
there as a teacher and football
coach for five years.
"At the time, I had been
coaching high school football
for so many years," said
JHoard, the current Bradford
'High Scho6i head coach.
"Dealing with the little ones-
I was unsure if that's where I
really wanted to be or needed
to be."
What Hoard said he would
come to find out, though, is
that no matter what is going on


Steve Hoard returns to Southside Elementary School
as assistant principal.

in his life, it is impossible to
have a bad day around
elementary-age children.
"When you walk down the
hall and some tiny, little kid
looks up at you and says, 'I
love you,' how much better
can it get than that," he said.
After spending a year at
Southside during his first year
in administration, Hoard was
transferred to Bradford High
School, where he spent two
years. During that time, as well
as during the other years he
worked at the high school,
Hoard saw students who were
affected by poverty or unstable
home lives. Some students, he
said, were homeless after
moving several times and
living with different relatives.
Children who may wind up
in such a scenario can be
identified as early as
elementary school, Hoard said.
He wants to do what he can-
along with the rest of the
Southside staff-to identify
those children and help them
in any way possible before
they end up like some of the
students he saw at the high
school.
"I can see, if there aren't
interventions in these kids'
lives, how they're going to
turn out later," Hoard said.
Hoard said a plan must be
put into place to help children.
Is it a challenge? Sure, Hoard
said. However, he said that
doesn't mean it's a challenge
that shouldn't be tackled.
"My thing is, never say
never," Hoard said. "You just
have to get it done."
What Hoard has witnessed
in Bradford County is
tremendous support from
school staff-whether it was at
the high school or at
Southside-and the
community in helping kids
who are in need. He has seen
people donate clothes and
school supplies for children
whose families simply cannot
afford those items. Even
people in the community who
do not have children in the
school system will step
forward and lend a,hand.
"That's impressive," Hoard
said. "There are a lot of good
people in this-communiiy'who
care about kids."
Hoard cannot say enough
about the "good people" he
works alongside.at Southside.
He remembers ,the hard work
everyone at the school put in to

Local women work together to produce catalog


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It's away for artist Laurel
Baker to show off her jewelry,
but in the end, the catalog she
will produce later this year will
also .showcase the talents of
two other Bradford County
women.
In a true spirit of


cooperation, Virginia Autry
allowed her business-the
Strawberry Tea Room-to be
used as the setting for the
photographs that will make up
Baker's catalog. Taking the
photographs was local
photographer Brenda
Thornton. As Autry put it, the
sene during the photo shoot,
which took place Aug. 11, was


- "just three local girls working
together here in Bradford
County."
Baker said the first place she
thought of when it came to
selecting a setting for the
catalog photos was the
Strawberry Tea Room, which
was decorated by Autry.
"It's a beautiful place,"
Baker said.
Autry was more than happy
to cooperate, citing the
relationship she and her
husband, Bobby, enjoy with
Baker and her family.
"I'm so glad I could help in
that capacity," Autry said.
"Laurel and her family are
longtime friends of ours."
Autry said it was also
exciting to have Thornton
taking the photographs.
"She's taken so many
photographs of our family,"
Autry said. "We certainly
count her as one of our friends,
as well."
Baker knows Thornton well,
having worked for her in a
part-time capacity in the past,
but it was the quality of
Thornton's work that made
Baker approach her about

portraits.
More than anything, though,
it was an opportunity for local
businesswomen to come
together and help each other.
"I think it's important to
work together," Thornton said.
Thornton and Autry were
not the only ones helping
Baker during the photo shoot.







Laurel Baker
(far right)
shows off some
of her jewelry b
to Kasey Eaves '
(far left) and
Danielle Baker.


Baker's sisters-Molly
Addison and Danielle Baker-
modeled the jewelry, as did
Julie McMillan and Kasey
Eaves. The choice of those
four was obvious enough.
Baker said her sisters are her
biggest supporters, while
Eaves is the niece of another
big supporter-Andrea
Waterhouse. Baker went to
school with McMillan and
calls her a lifelong friend.
It was important to have her
friends and sisters model the


jewelry because the resulting
photographs will help people
better see what the jewelry will
look like, for example, or how
big the pieces are, Baker said.
This is the first catalog
Baker has produced: She said
she will distribute it at shows
and mail it to current clients.
The catalog will also be made
available online.
"I've been doing shows for a
couple of years," Baker said.
"I've got. a pretty good
clientele now. I just wanted to


have a catalog-something
you can hold in your hand."
Baker, a 2000 Bradford
High School graduate, has
been an artist throughout her
entire life, she said. She
specializes in creating pieces
from agatized coral. Her
father, John, has been a big
inspiration, not only because
of his knowledge of making
jewelry, but because of his
knowledge of coral.
"He's a geologist," Baker
said. "He specializes in coral.
That's how I got into it."
Baker said she plans for the
catalog to be ready in the fall.
She would like to use the
Strawberry Tea Room again at
that time to host a party
celebrating the catalog's
release.
The catalog is a way Baker
can help women, just like she
was helped by Autry and
Thornton. She hopes her
jewelry makes women feel
good about themselves.
"I feel useful helping women
feel pretty," Baker said.

jewelry, please visit the Web

Consumer Alert
Over the past couple of weeks, there has been a very organized effort to steal
personal financial information from consumers. It's important that you know
there has been no breach of information with the phone company or with
financial institutions.
Criminals randomly select phone numbers and email addresses and send out
tens of thousands of messages at one time, hoping to get responses from
consumers.
They also randomly select financial institutions to use in their messages.
These banks and credit unions are named only to cause consumers to panic
and act without thinking.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS:
They never request personal information through email, text messages,
or on the phone.

They never ask you to "verify" information such as account numbers, pin
numbers, passwords, or credit card numbers.

They will never ask you to click on a link to a "special" website to verify
or request personal information.

WHAT IF THE PHONE CALL OR EMAIL SEEMS AUTHENTIC?
Don't be fooled. Your financial institution will never contact you for your credit
card or account number. Messages or emails that contain requests for your
personal information are most likely a scam!

Do not reply to them. Do not call the numbers given. And most important, never provide
your account numbers, passwords, debit, credit card numbers or pin numbers.

In the event you receive a suspicious phone 'call, text message or email, contact
your financial institution immediately to confirm the authenticity of the
communication and report the suspicious activity. If you would like more
information on how these scams work and how to protect yourself, call Florida
Credit Union or visit their Web site at www.flcu.org.

words, she wanted her children
to remember good times, not
the fact she was sick.
Mike said he kept trying to
talk Jill out of making the trip,
but she.would have none of it.
"She finally interrupted me,"
Mike remembered, "and said,
'Are you going to take me or
not?' She said, 'If you're not
going to take me, that's fine.
Give me the phone. I'll find


somebody who will take me.'
"What do you say to that?"
Jill's approach to life despite
her disease was uplifting,
much in the same %way as a
lecture by Carnegie Mellon
University professor Randy
Pausch, Mike said. Pausch,
who had pancreatic cancer,
died this past July, but he gave
a "last lecture," which can be
found on the Internet. Mike
encouraged everyone who
hasn't seen it to do so. It just
may remind people of Jill.
"While I was watching it, it
kind of hit me," Mike said. "I
said, 'You know, he could be
talking about Jill.' You see, for
people like Jill, the diagnosis
was never about death. It was
always about life."
Hayes said remembering
Jill's attitude makes coping
with her death a little easier.
"When I think about Jill's
spunk and tenacity while
coping with her illness, I
smile," Hayes said.
Mike said Hayes and the
other members of the Hold'em
for Hope committee deserved a
lot of thanks. He recognized
each member during the Aug.
16 event: Hayes, Jill's cousins
Paula Hawkins, Nannette
Starling and Pam Woodington,
and friends Debbie Dolski,
Courtnie Douglas, Denise
Dukes, Mel Howard, Belinda
Manukian and Brenda Parrish.
"These, ladies have donated
their time and their talents to
this organization," Mike said.

HOPE
Continued from page 10B

"The only thing they get out of
it is the satisfaction of
knowing that they're doing a
good thing."
Hayes said she and the other
committee members have
already begun discussing next
year's event.
"That's how much we enjoy
it," she said.
Hold'em for Hope is not the
only fundraiser Jill's family
and friends are involved in. A
golf tournament is planned for
next month in Starke (more
information will be featured
closer to the event) and the
Hold'em for Hope ladies
luncheon on Oct. 15.
Then there is the Making
Strides Against Breast Cancer
5K walk on Oct. 4. The team
known as "Jill's Crawbabies"
has raised and donated
$70,000 to the American
Cancer Society for breast
cancer research.
"Jill was a staunch supporter
of clinical studies,
participating in two," Hayes
said. "She wanted to make a
difference. She wanted to help
find a cure."
Thanks to the community
support of such events as the
Hold'em for Hope poker
tournament, auction and
dinner, perhaps Jill's desire to
find a cure will one day be
fulfilled.
S"There are a lot of good
causes and a lot of good
.organizations," Mike told the
crowd at Plantation Oaks. "We
are humbled by the fact you've
chosen this organization and
this cause to come and spend
some of your charitable
dollars."

HOARD
Continued from page 7B

assistant at Union County High
School when that school won
three straight state
championships and put
together ---W ikR-to-back
undefeated seasons. Despite
that success, the coaching staff
worked just as hard as ever .in
an -attempt to maintain it. As
Hoard said, if you rest on your
laurels, your success will
diminish and someone else
will pass you by.
"The next thing you know,
some of the things that made
you special you're now not
quite special at," Hoard said.
Hoard said the pride he sees
day in and day out at Southside
rubs off on him and makes him
want to do his part to help the
school be as good as it can be.
The pride starts at the top with
Principal Bill McRae, whom
Hoard said was an important


mentor for him during his first
year as an administrator, and
trickles down throughout all
the teachers and staff.
"It's incredible," Hoard said.
"They're just so driven and
motivated. They make it a
pleasure to be here."
-- Thosc--c.-hildren -who- may
find themselves a little
intimidated when they see
Hoard for the first time make it
a pleasure, too. Hoard is not
Godzilla or King Kong, but he


probably feels like he's as
powerful as either creature
after being around the
children. The children give
him energy, Hoard said.
Hoard is not a father per se,
but don't think he doesn't have
any children..
"I guess I've got about 660
of them here (at Southside)
and about another 50 or 60 on
the football team," Hoard said.
"I'm blessed. 1 really and truly
am.

What I aspired to be and was not,
comforts me.
Robert Browning

It is not funny that anything else should
fall down; only that a man should fall
down. Why do we laugh? Because it is
a gravely religious matter: it is the Fall of
Man. Only man can be absurd: for only
man can be dignified.
