Amphitheater considered for downtown
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor -
A proposed amphitheater space could
be the first step in the evolution of the
old Starke power plant into a center for
downtown entertainment and the seat
of city government.
They're calling it an amphitheater,
although that sounds grander than what
is actually under consideration. As
currently imagined, one portion of the
power plant site would be developed
with an entertainment stage, restrooms
and maybe even a simple concession
Demolition and cleanup of the diesel-
contaminated power plant site is still
a work in progress. The contractor is
following the Florida. Department of.
Environmental Protection's plodding
schedule of reviews and work permits.
Then again, the state is covering the
entire cost of the cleanup project
and is even replacing what is being"
demolished with concrete work that is
expected to form the foundation of the
future amphitheater project.
Architect Paul Stressing showed the
city commission four initial options
for the orientation of the amphitheater.
Talk about what would be done with the
power plant site took place as Stressing
was working with city Operation
Manager Ricky Thompson on the design
for the proposed recreation complex on
Edwards Road. The topic has come up
. before..The city commission's ultimate
goal is to build the next city hall where
the power plant once stood. In the
mean time, the parcel's usefulness as
a parking lot for downtown events has
been mentioned, and Main Street Starke
approached the city about hosting the
next Bike Fest there.
The site's potential role in supporting
events aqd drawing crowds downtown is
at the heart of the amphitheater project.
It could also serve as a new landmark
that would welcome people entering
downtown via East Call Street,

to Call Street, leaving room to
construct a ew city hall building
on the Madison Street side of the
property. Eventually columns
may be added and a roof added
to the stage area. The sloping of
the land would help drainage and
contribute to the "amphitheater"
feel, Stressing said.
Stressing estimated the
structure would cost around
'$160 a square foot to construct,
however large the city decides
to build it. There is no money
earmarked in the current budget
for the project, however.
As for the future city hall,
there is no funding for that
vision either. The possibility
of leasing office space to help
pay for the financing of a new
building has occurred to the city.

professions. She's even talked
about the possibility of having
in-house restaurant pay the city
for space in the new building.
There's nothing on paper, but
ideas have been thrown around.
The new city hall would be a
three or even four stories-with
underground parking and a
decorative fountain. It would
house city government and
may even incorporate offices
for the police department. (The
current department location-the
former Florida Highway Patrol
building-actually belongs to the
state.) Additional parking would
be available off site.
The city also wants to build
a new recreation building on
Edwards Road with indoor
playing court and room for other
activities. There is some money
set aside for that, but not nearly
enough to begin construction.
So while the city leaders dream
big about building improved
'multimillion-dollar facilities, it
appears their imaginations may
have to work overtime to come
up with revenue to make their
dreams come true.

Adkins to open office at courthouse
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
County commissioners have
provided Rep. Janet Adkins
with a local office, and Adkins
appeared before the commission
Monday to thank them for the
space and discuss some of her
goals as the area's new voice in
the Florida House.
Among the projects Adkins
discussed is an internship
program for high school and
college students who want to
gain experience working in a
local state legislative office.
"I believe that by' allowing
our youth to participate as an
intern, we can expand their
horizons and allow i them to
become more involved in their
state government, and perhaps
more important, to:| open a
window for them in the world
of state government," Adkins
said, adding that they will begin
processing applications for the
internships after January.
Adkins also announced an Arts
in Action program her office will
sponsor, challenging each school
in the district to conduct art
contests. Winners will receive
letters of acknowledgement and
have their artwork displayed in
the, state legislative office for
"It is my hope that this will
encourage parents, students and
schools to make art a part of their
lives and will help recognize the
accomplishments of students
who have been gifted in this
way," said Adkins.
Adkins said state and local
leaders are facing significant
"Florida is challenged with a
budget crisis like we have never
seen before," Adkins said,talking
about the $2 billion 'reduction
expected in the current year
and the $2.5 billion reduction
anticipated for next year.
A lagging economy due to
construction stagnation and the
slowing of growth are ihe cause,
she said, and the House speaker
and Senate president have
announced that member projects
will not be allowed, which limits
the ability for lawniakers to fund
Rep. Janet Adkins
Ad ki ns said Congress,however,
is expected to approve a stimulus
package for infrastructure.
"We would like to see those
funds directed hear to the needs
in North Florida," she said,
encouraging the commission to
compile a priority list of projects
for consideration. She also asked
for input on support or programs
the county currently receives that
need to be protected.
-"I look forward to working with
you to ensure that the citizens of
Bradford County receive the very
best service that we can provide,"
Adkins told the commission.
Adkins has appointed
Marianne Marshall, a former
county commissioner from
Nassau County with a reputation
for getting things done, according
to Sheriff Bob Milner, to oversee
the local office. That office is
expected to open in January.
"I am excited about the chance
to open a district office in
Starke," Adkins said. "I believe
that the office will help improve
communication and access to
state government for citizens and
local governmental officials in
the surrounding area. I believe
that having a member of my staff
here on the ground will make
mi .office more accessible and
provide a greater level of service
in helping citizens with accessing
information or getting solutions
to the problems they face."
She also introduced Larry
Williams to the commission. He
will be her legislative assistant
for budgetary and policy matters
Following her meeting with
the commission, Adkins toured
local corrections facilities and-
spoke with officers, wardens and
staff about their needs given the
importance of corrections to the
"As the Legislature considers
additional budget cuts, I will
work hard to protect public
safety jobs here at these state
correctional facilities," she said.
"The important link between
these state facilities and the local
economy is critical during these
hard economic times. I fully
support the efforts of our state
correctional officers and plan to

Recycling mandate calls for planning
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Gov. Charlie Crist's
environmental goals for the state
include a mandate that 75 percent
of municipal waste be recycled
by the year 2020.
The date may seem far away,
but* local governments won't
be allowed to procrastinate.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection has,
been told to have a plan in place
to begin incrementally achieving
the 75 percent target much
sooner-by 2010. Soon local
governments are going to be
required to report the progress of
their recycling efforts.
With that in mind, the Starke
City Commission met with its
solid waste contractor, Emerald
Waste Services, last week and
its representatives presented two
plans to add recycling pickup to
the services already provided.
The options presented by EWS
representatives Bob Shires and
Brian Hughes include one that
would add no additional monthly
cost for residents. To keep the
residential bill at $17.93 a month,
however, the city would have to
sacrifice a collection day for non-
recycled waste. Instead of trash
collection two days a week and
yard waste collection one day a
week, the new schedule would
allow one day for household
trash, one day for recycling and
one day for yard waste.
Option two would increase
the monthly bill by $2.50,
bringing the monthly total to
$20.43. Under this option, the
current schedule -would remain
unchanged.-There wouldd be two-
days of trash collection, one day
for yard waste and a new day
designated for recycling.
.In both cases, EWS would
supply two containers per
newspaper and cardboard, and
the other to commingle steel
and aluminum cans, plastic jugs,
glass bottles, etc. Making things
as simple as possible is one key
to a successful program, Shires
The recyclingioal includes
cofimmercial .a'waste.. too.... but
*additional cost would be based
on the container provided.
Currently there is acommerciali
cardboard recycling program,
and residents have the option of
taking recyclable items to one
of the county's: collection sites.
Recycling has largely been an
The new state requirements
mean local governments are
going to have to provide better
opportunities to recycle and
persuade the public to take
part. In some cases, commercial
waste producers may have to be
compelled to do so.
Shires pointed to a successful
recycling program in Gainesville
and Alachua County, which
has had an aggressive recycling
program since 1996 that included
public education and ordinances
requiring commercial waste
i generators to have recycling
The EWS plan to help the city,
of Starke recycle 75 percent of
its waste includes programs to
educate students about recycling
as wel las a wider public education
campaign using posters, flyers,

door hangers," and radio and
print advertisement. The hauler
will, also provide examples
of ordinances that regulate
recycling activities for the city
Commercial waste producers or
haulers could be required to make
monthly reports on their recycling
percentages, for example.
Certificates of occupancy for
replacement construction could
become contingent on builders
showing they recycled what
they could following demolition.

Americans discard enough aluminum to

bottles is recycled.

and throw away enough'steel every year
to build all of the new cars made in the
Then there are other ways
!of encouraging compliance. In
Deland, the city awards a $100
gift card each month to an earnest
recycler, Shires said.
According to Hughes,recycling
is common sense because this
reuse of materials saves energy
and natural resources, reduces
pollution and prolongs the life
of landfills by keeping reusable
materials out of them. It is also
far from a new phenomenon,
he said. According to Hughes,
before the 1920s, 70 percent
of U.S. cities ran programs to
recycle certain materials, and
during World War II, industry
recycled about a quarter of the
waste stream. Since 1960, when
the recycling rate was around
7.7 percent, the rate has risen to
around 33 percent thanks in part
to the more than 10,000 curbside
recycling programs across the
nation, Hughes said.
The relatively low cost of
providing the recycling service
assumes the city won't want to
make money from the materials
that are collected. Shires said
EWS does have revenue sharing
agreements with some of the
local governments it serves, and
customers there pay higher rates.
The price for recyclable materials
is dropping in the current
economy, however, making such
arrangements less profitable.
S.bires said the company was
once earning $180 a ton for the
cardboard it collected. That's
down to around $10 a ton, he
said. Now those customers are
still paying higher rates, but the
local government is earning very
little in return.
"The 75 percent goal may
seem like a high standard, but
some are already in a better
position to begin meeting it than
others. How rural county's like
Bradford will get to a 75 percent
participation rate in recycling
without a countywide collection
service in place to coordinate it
remains to be seen.
The city commission appears
ready to begin trying, however,
and could begin approving
'ordinances related to recycling
Bill Scoggins (right) recently stopped by the U.S. Post
Office in Starke to speak with Postmaster Jesse Brown.
Scoggins worked as a part-time flexible clerk and carrier
for the post office for approximately 10 years (1961-71)
before being promoted to regular postal clerk. Following
the 1970 Postal Reorganizational Act, he was the first
employee of the Starke Post Office td be appointed to the
position of postmaster, effective April 1, 1972. Scoggins
noted that many changes had been made since his
departure, and more changes in the level of service may
be Inevitable given the state of the economy.

Former journalist, Melrose resident Burt dies at 81
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
.He traveled extensively
throughout the Western
Hemisphere, but it was his
travels throughout Florida he
loved the most. Florida was
home, and there was -perhaps
no place as dear to his heart as
Al Burt, a former journalist,
columnist and editor for the
Miami Herald, and a Melrose
resident for more than 30
years, died Nov. 29 in
Jacksonville at the age of 81.
Burt chronicled the state for
Herald readers as the
columnist. As such, he sought
a place to live that would make
sense as he traveled throughout.
the state. Melrose provided the
central location he was looking
for, but the area had more
going for it than that. Burt, in a
- 199.6 interview published in
the ..Bradford County
Telegraph, Lake Region
Monitor and Union County
Times, said he had fond
memories of the area from his
time as a student at the
University of Florida.
"This is the first area I ,
thought about," Burt said of
choosing a place to live. "I
liked it a lot and felt it was a
nice place to live."
Burt contributed to the
Melrose community in several
ways, such as serving on the
boards of the public library
and Historic Melrose Inc. Burt
was a charter member of
Historic Melrose and served as
that organization's president
on a couple of occasions.
Mobility proved to be more
and more difficult as Burt got
older due to injuries he
sustained after being shot in
1965 while covering a civil.
war in the Domincan Republic
for the Miami Herald. Still, he
always volunteered to do
whatever he could to help out
Historic Melrose, according to
fellow member Rosemary
Dauer. That included
designing programs for events
on his computer and writing
-pres-reieases.-- --- .
"Whatever he could do. he
would do," Dauer said.
Burt was eventually.
confined to a wheelchair.
Dauer said that, along w ith the
health of his wife, Gloria.
forced Burt to mo\ e to
Jacksonville not that long ago
at the advice of his brother.
The move was so that Burt
could receive convenient care.
Dauer said Burt, in a letter he
wrote to her, talked of
returning to his home in
Melrose dnce his health

At 1 p.m. on Dec. 2 this 2007 Ford van ran the
stop sign at Jefferson Street and U.S. 301. The
van struck the rear trailer of a northbound log
truck causing it to spin clockwise and overturn
onto the driver's side, sliding into Julia's Florist
Building. Driver of the van, Karen Jones, of
Starke, apparently received minor injuries and was
transported to Shands University in Gainesville.
Damage to the van was estimated at $15,000.
Jones was charged with failure to stop at stop
sign, according to Sgt. Matt Watson. Damages to
the building were undetermined at press time.

"We're sure going to miss
him," Dauer said.
Burt, who began his career
as a sports journalist, had no
problem leaving the hustle and
bustle of south Florida behind
for what he described in a
2004 Telegraph, Monitor,
Times story as a tranquil life
on a Melrose lake. One of his
joys, he said, was watching
new people on the lake
succumb to the tranquility.
Those people, when they first
moved on the lake, felt the
need to constantly be out on
the water, 'either boating or.
windsurfing, Burt said.
"After they live here for
about six months, or maybe .a
year, they quiet down," Burt
said. "It's very interesting how
the area tranquilizes them."
Burt's journalism career
spanned almost 50 years. He
began working for the
Jacksonville Journal part-time
as a student at UF. After
graduation, -he went to work
for United Press in Atlanta in
1950. He then worked for the
Atlanta Journal (1951-52) and
the Jacksonville Journal again
(1952-55) before taking a job*
with the Herald in 1955.,
At the Herald, Burt worked
his way up to the position of
assistant executive sports
editor, which was followed by
stints as chief of Broward
bureaus, night city editor, city
editor and editor of the Latin
America!department. Burt was
able to travel throughout Latin
America as a result of the latter
position, but was eventually
injured in the 1965 Dominican
Burt, along. with Herald
photographer Doug Kennedy,
approached a U.S. Marines
barricade in the Dominican
Republic in a rental car. Burt
had approached .the same
barricade the day before .and
had no problems, but on this
day, Marines opened fire on
the car. Burt, sitting in the
back seat, was struck nine
"I had no doubt that I was
going to die," Burt told the
Telegraph, Monitor and Times
in 1996. "It was just a matter
of waiting for the bullet to hit
me in the head."
Burt did not die, but he went
back to Miami after the
incident and worked as a

baseline for a set amount of
time. Her players don't think
much of that drill, but Carter
said when she played, she and
her teammates didn't care
much for it, either.
Making the players work
hard and being firm with
them-they are traits Carter
picked up from Boatwright.
"She worked us hard, but
you always knew she cared,"
Carter said. "I can get on these
girls, I can yell at them and get
in their face, but I hope they
realize I do still care for them."
Boatwright's toughness at an
early age. In fact, Carter
remembers taking part in
Boatwright's YBA program
when she was in fourth grade.
"She told her husband I was
going to be her starting point
guard on varsity," Carter said.
Boatwright's husband at the
time joked that Carter was
going to have to do some
stretching out, but the fourth-
grader would indeed go on to
become Boatwright's starting
Carter helped Boatwright
pick up her first state
championship in 1994. She
scored 11 points in a 65-29
win over Florida High in the
state semifinals, then followed
that up by leading her team
with 22 points in a 73-59 win
over Wildwood for the title.
In the 1994-95 season,
Carter helped the Indians go%.
30-4 and win their second
straight state championship.
She scored, 10 points and had
seven assists and five steals in
a 70-53 semifinal win over
Bishop Verot. In the state
final, Carter scored 15 points
and had five.- assists as the
Indians defeated Tampa
Academy of the Holy Names
67-55. She helped the Indians
go up 51-38 in the third quarter
of that game by making two 3-
After graduating from
Keystone, Carter continued to
play basketball at Warner
University in Lake Wales.
"It's what some people
dream of doing, but they don't
get the opportunity," Carter
said. "To get that opportunity
was just great for me. That's
one reason why I want to
coach at this level. I want these
girls to have that experience I
was able to have. If they want
to go somewhere and play, I
want to help them."
Carter coached at several
places after graduating from
Warner, such as in Frostproof
and at a junior college in
Alabama. Like playing
basketball in college, it was
another dream come true.
"Ever since I was little, I
wanted to teach and I wanted
to coach," Carter said. "I never
thought I'd get the opportunity
to coach varsity back in my
hometown. That's just an
added bonus to a dream that
The joke, now that Carter is
the Keystone head coach, is
that her husband of five years,
Neil Carter, gets to go fishing
and do whatever he wants to.
He refers to basketball season
as the couple's "annual
In all seriousness, Carter
said she told her husband that
her role as the varsity head
coach would consume a lot of
her time, but no one has been
more supportive of her than
"He sits right behind my
bench," Carter said. "He's
-right there with me. He yells
just as loud as I do."
Carter admits that having the
chance to coach at the
collegiate level is an appeal,
but for now, she's happy in
Keystone. She said it would be
great if she could have a tenure

championships like Boatwright
did, Carter admitted Keystone
faces some obstacles. Unlike
when she played, the school
now offers other girls' sports,
such as soccer. The soccer
season coincides with
basketball season, so a player
can't play both.
It's an issue larger schools
don't have to deal with, Carter
said. However, Carter looks at
the situation as a positive in
that the girls who do choose to
play basketball do so because
they really want to.
"Athletes are spread thin
(here)," she said, "but you get
the girls who want to be here."
Dedication is an important
component for a successful
team. Carter recalled how she
and her Keystone teammates
grew up doing nothing but
playing basketball together.
Carter said she could close her
eyes and know where each of
her teammates was going to be
on the floor at any given time.
"When I first started with
the junior high team, that's one
thing- I really put in their
minds," Carter said. "This is
where you start. You can't
start at the varsity level and
expect to win state." .... .

FHTM has been a blessing, and we get paid for introducing products that people use

me to do the things that people like me, a broke, old daity farmer, aren't supposed to be
able to do. Financial success doesn't change anyone; it brings out the people who were
