School board moves

.Renaissance program


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The school board heard some
criticism but nevertheless followed
through with moving the Renaissance
program
from the
historic RJE
high school
in northeast .'
Starke to '
a suite of ...
classrooms at
the Bradford- NA
Union Career
Technical CEI
Center.
The
transition \\ill
take place
during the
Christmas
break, and when students return in
January, the alternative school for
disciplined students will be housed in
the former health building at the career
center.
Esther Kelly is president of the SAC
committee at'the Renaissance Center
and claimed moving the students would
endanger "their knowledge." Saying she
had looked over-the rooms where the-
students will be relocated at the career
center and there are no windows in the
rooms. Kelly said this has a negative
impact on education, and she asked
board members to look at the research.
Kelly also said fencing the students
would lower their self-esteem. She said
there's no wa\ she'd send a child of hers
to school in a building with out windows
where he would be fenced in like a
prisoner. Even if they've done wrong,
she said, there is a center available to
better accommodate them. ... .
If money is the issue, then the board
should pull from reserve funds to avoid
interrupting the program, Kelly added.


"I have'not devoted my time in vain to
help those children at the Renaissance
.Center," she said. "I have devoted my
time to making sure that little Johnny
learns from his mistakes, that he goes
back to the school and is a better
student.
Kelly said
there was
also a danger

She indicated
that experience has shown that services
need to be brought to the community
for there to be participation. By moving
the Renaissance and family education
programs, Kelly said the school district
was reversing progress.
She asked if board members had
spoken to parents at all about the
move.
"Myheart is for the children, and
I -feel to disrupt those kids now in the
middle of the year is not going forward,
it's going backward," Kelly said.
Stephanie Van Den Hurk teaches as

while asking the board to leave the

"I think at this point to, move tur

Developers would pay
for trees they cannot
replace
BY MARK. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor \

The Starke City Commission
held the first reading of a new tree
ordinance last week that creates a
-permitting process for removing
trees and forces developers to pay
into a mitigation funds for failing
to replace an adequate number of
trees they remove.
The ordinance amends land
development regulations to
provide for a so-called uniform
policy for site clearing and. tree
protection.
If the ordinance were approved,
permits would be required for the
removal of protected trees, except
on single-family residential
properties.
There was some confusion over
one paragraph in the proposed
ordinance that revoked the
permit exemption on individually
owned, single-family properties
if the property does not remain
residential for at least a year
after trees are removed. It was
designed .to .prevent. speculators
from removing trees but, as
written, would only prevent

of the same concerns,
but she also spoke of ihe

year-lease for the-use of
the RJE school, asking
what would happen to
the center if the district
desserts it. Hard work
has gone into improving the
facility and there are plans ,to
continue doing so. McMillian
asked what the board's plans for
RJE are, but an answer was never
given. .
McMillian, a city of Starke
employee, said she knows the
budgetary pain the school
district is facility. The economy
is affecting everyone, but she.
asked at least that the students
be allowed to finish the \ear at
RJE.
School Board Member Jesse
Moore agreed with many of
concerns of those who had
spoken, including the midyear
disruption.
"If we're going to.save.a little
money, will it'be worth the cost
to the kids for the disruption of.
the program they have now?"
he asked. He also questioned
whether or not the district would
be able to provide the same level of
service and keep the Renaissance
students separated from the rest
of.the student population.
He said unless the district was


saving a lot of money, he would
prefer to leave the program alone,
at least until the end of this school
year, taking a closer look at the
advantages and disadvantages
of moving the program in the
meantime.
Superintendent of Schools Beth
Moore said that with $300,000 to
$700,000 in additional revenue
cuts facing the district before the
end'of this school year, she was


looking for every dollar that can
be saved.
"You're preaching to the choir
when you talk about students,
because I'm all about students;
.and I want them to get the same
education here as they would
there-and maybe even better,"
she said.
Pressed to talk more about
the money that would be saved,
the superintendent admittedly
couldn't place a number on the
savings the district would realize
from moving the program to
the career center. Among the
benefits, Beth Moore said there
would be a reduction in utility
costs and the district could avoid
replacing individuals who have
retired. Meals could also be
walked over from the middle
school instead of- transported,
and students will benefit from
services they haven't had, she
said. For example, there will be
a counselor and career specialist
on campus.
They are looking at ways
to protect students without


further ostracizing them, the
superintendent said, but it does
appear some sort of fencing will
be required, at least around the
recreation field.
That bare field was a point
of controversy in itself since it
would be taking the place of
a gymnasium and sports field
that the Renaissance students
use now for physical education.
The superintendent agreed the


students wouldn't have access
to the same PE facilities, but
options like moving Ping-Pong
tables and basketball hoops were
mentioned.
, School Board, Member Randy
Jones asked about how 'visible
the Renaissance program kids
would be to the middle school
or other students, saying a parent
he has spoken to was concerned
that being seen fenced in by
their peers at the middle school
would be the equivalent of seeing
prisoners in a prison. Having
students be observed in that way
was a problem for him as well, he
said.
Renaissance Center Principal
Jason Jennings was present but
did not comment. Career Tech
Director Randy Starling, who is
eventually expected to assume
full oversight of the Renaissance
program, did, however, defend
plans to relocate the alternative
school. He said the Renaissance
students are not going to be
shoved in a corner behind a fence
if he as anything to say about it.

at least $500 million," Frank
wrote.


Starling said the same population
of Renaissance students rides the
bus to school with other students,
so he said he sees no problem
bringing those students to the
career center without putting up
a fence.
The Renaissance students
will be supervised more closely;
Starling said, and they won't be
outside of the classroom when
other students are changing
classes. In addition to
other accommodations,
Starling said there is
,li: even a classroom that
i. can be used as a PE
room.
"They will have the
same services, the same
opportunities," Starling.
said. "No one on my
staff or my campus is
going to make them
feel like they are being
ostracized."
If anything, he added,
this is an opportunity for
increased involvement
by the Renaissance
students in vocational
l~F"' education.
.*^l As for the savings,
Starling said, they
aren't all going to take
place Dec. I, but there will be.
significant savings over time,
continuing into a tighter budget
year next year.
"I will do everything in my
power and ability to make sure
it's a smooth transition and
that we've done everything we
possibly can on my campus,"
said Starling.
School Board Member Vivian
Chappell said after the disruption
of having to move students from ,
Lawtey to the Family Service
Center last year, there was no
students adversely affected that'
she is aware of, and she .didn't'
understand many of the concerns
that had been raised.
"We've placed an awesome
burden on these administrators
to cut this budget, so I feel like
we have to start some place to get
this thing going," Chappell said.
She supported fellow Board
Member David Smith's motion
to approve the relocation, and the
motion carried 4-1, with Jesse
Moore dissenting.

Milner delivers final progress report


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Sheriff Bob Mi I ner gave a final
report to the county commission
earlier this month, discussing
work that has been accomplished
as well as challenges that lie
ahead for the board and for the
man who will soon take over his
office, Gordon Smith.
According to Milner, index
crimes reported to the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
are down in the unincorporated
area by 36 percent for the first
six months of the year, and the
sheriff's office had a crime
clearance rate of nearly 44
percent, up from a clearance rate
around 34 percent in 2007.
From January through
October, there were more than
63,000 visits to the courthouse,
according to the scanner at the
courthouse entrance. Trials,
mainly civil, are going on most
days of the week, Milner said.
He talked about the commitment
of tle board and constitutional
officers to courthouse security
and the completion of the sally
port project, which ensures safer
transfer of inmates from the jail
to the courtroom.
The sheriff said the jail is
cleaner and better run than it has
ever been thanks to Capt. Carol
Starling and Lt. Rathmann. The
average numberof daily bookings
are about the same as last year-
around 200-while the average
daily jail population (mostly
sentenced and unsentenced
felons) fluctuates between 130
and 150, although it topped 166
in October. When it gets cold
and the economy is down, jail
population increases, he said,
so there could be a continued
increase in the number of inmates
housed now and in the coming
months.
Maximum jail capacity is 159,
but the jail has run over that
many times, Milner assured, by
adding beds.
Inmate medical costs continue
to be a concern. He pointed to
a recent bill for nearly $4,700
for a recent one-night stay in
the,hospital. By agreement, the
sheriff pays for the first"$5,;;00
in medical expenses mc"ilred
by an inmate, after which
time it becomes the board's
responsibility. There is a $20,000
deductible forinmate catastrophic
medical insurance so long as
there is continuous confinement.
Right now, however, Milner said
he has another bill that amounts
to $26,000 that the county is
totally responsible for because
confinement was not continuous.
That bill will only increase
because the felon cannot be
released from custody, he said.
With an aging and increasingly
afflicted inmate population,
.Milner said sheriffs and others
in law enforcement continue to
'be concerned that medical costs
"ill only increase.
"We've been able to float it to
this point, but you're going to see
.a significant increase in the cost
of inmate health care over the


Starke: Avoid

peak demand

usage to

lower bills
SAccording to the city of Starke,
its utility customers can reduce
their electric costs by reducing
usage during the peak demand
hours.
During the winter months; the
peak electric demand hours are
from 7-10 a.m. You can reduce
electric consumption during
these hours by turning off heating
units and avoiding the use of
appliances like dishwashers, pool
pumps, hot water heaters and any
.unnecessary lighting.
This will lower usage during
the peak hours, lower the city's
cost for electricity and result in
savings for customers, according
to city Operations Manager
Ricky Thompson.
For questions about this or
other matters of concern, please
contact city hall at (904) 964-
5027.

and I don't
know anyway
around it,"
Milner said.
Another area
the county will
have to invest
in is animal
control.
"We
inherited a
mess from the
city," Milner
said.
Capt.
Randall
Zipperer,
sheltermanager
Tracey Sayles
and animal
control officer
Ellis Griffis
have been in
charge recently.
While the


c-. L

animal control facility has come
along way in cleanliness and care
with a combination of volunteer
help, donations and inmate
labor, the shelter itself remains
inadequate, the sheriff said.
A similar number of animals
are picked up by animal control
or left at the shelter. Of the2,775
animals (1,221 dogs and 1,554
cats) at the shelter from October
2007-October 2008, most (1,475)
are still being put to sleep. That's
too high, Milner admitted.
On the bright side, nearly 850
animals were released to rescue
organizations and there were 235
adoptions.
The large numbers highlight
one of the shelter's problems-
space. There are too many
animals and nowhere to put
them. There is actually only
space for around 20 dogs and 30
cats at any one time, and there
isn't enough room to keep dogs
and cats away from each other.
In spite of donations, purchases
and upgrades, the facility that
is there is in need of repairs and
expansion.
"This board has allowed us
to come a long way with animal
control, but were are nowhere
near where we need to be
humanely for the personnel who
work there, for the visitors who
adopt the animals, reducing our
euthanasia rates, (and) increasing
spaying and neutering through
a plan working with vets and
others," the sheriff said.,
Within the next two years,
Milner said the board would have
to address creating an appropriate
shelter for animal control.
Aside from fines and asset
forfeitures from drug busts and
the like. the sheriff's office
doesn't generate a lot of revenue.
Milner said The asset seizures
hja,. been sizable, hone\er.

Social Security has


good tidings to share

this holiday season


By Donna Maitland
Social Security District Manager,
Gainesville
As the holidays approach,
Social Security has good tidings
to share with Social Security and
Supplemental "Security Income
(SSI) beneficiaries: All Social
Security and SSI beneficiaries
will receive a 5.8 percent increase
in benefit payments beginning
with the January payments.
The 5.8 percent Cost-of-Living
Adjustment will begin with
benefits that more than 50 million
Social Security beneficiaries
receive in January 2009.
Increased payments to more than
7 million SSI beneficiaries will
begin on Dec. 31.
Social Security and
Supplemental Security Income
benefits increase automatically
each year based on the rise in
the Bureau of Labor Statistics'
"Consumer Price Index for
Urban Wage Earners and
Clerical Workers" from the'
third quarter of the prior year to
the corresponding period of the
current year.
This 5.8 percent increase is the
largest since 1982.
Along with the annual COLA
come other changes, including an


increase in the amount of wages
subject to Sociaf Security tax.
In 2008, the maximum taxable
amount'was $102,000. Beginning
in 2009, the maximum taxable'
amount will be $106,800. This
change will affect about i1
millionofthe 164 million workers
who pay Social Security tax. The
tax rate remains the samp: 6.2for
employers and.employees, and
12.4 for the self employed.
In 2009, it will take $1090 in
taxable earnings to earna credit
.of coverage for Social Security,
up from $1,050 in 2008.. All
-workers can earn up to four
credits in a year.
The average retired worker
will receive $1,153 per month in
Social Security.benefits in 2009,,
up from $1,090 in 2008. "

Women's medical clinic raising support, awareness


BY MELISSA PYLE
Telegraph Staff Writer

Friday evening, the Gainesville
and Starke Women's Resource
and Medical Clinic held its third
annual fundraising banquet at the
Gov. Charlie E. Johns Conference
Center in Starke.
The banquet was not only to
raise money, but awareness of the
clinic and its needs. Community
members and leaders concerned
with helping women through
challenging times attended the
banquet.
The Starke location will be
marking its third anniversary in
January. The Women's Resource
and Medical Clinic offers .free


services to women who riay
need counseling and or medical
care when facing an unplanned
pregnancy.
The Starke location is a
satellite of its larger, Gainesville
counterpart. The Gainesville
clinic first opened its doors in
1974 as the first crisis pregnancy
center in Florida. Starke patients
can be referred to Gainesville itf
services, such as an ultrasound,
are needed. Both clinics are
supported by donations of
time and money from local
community members, churches
and businesses.
The Starke location helped
more than 175 women and their
families in its first year alone.The


clinic offers counseling services
not only to women and girls, but
also to family members who may
need more information.
"The women's clinic needs
our support and we need this
women's clinic," said Rick Ward,
associate director of the Faith
Riders.
With a minimum budget of
$2,000 a month, the need of
the Starke clinic for money and
supplies is great. With renewed
support from the community,
the clinic plans on continuing to
i assist to each person who walks
through its doors at 100 W. Call
St.


Marney Best, Holly Best, and Sharon Blanton dedicated a lot of hard work to
organizing the banquet.

funds for the clinic.,

Yard art businesses part of the holiday tradition

BY MELISSA PYLE
Telegraph Staff Writer


This is the time of year when
everyone enjoys seeing all the
lights and holiday decorations.
Children anticipate the chance to
"ooh and aah" over the sparkle of
Christmas.
Locals have the unique
opportunity to enjoy this
experience all year long. Take a
trip on U.S. 301 and you will get
to see the glow of lights coming
from two different vendors.
Linda's Yard Arts and Lori's
Lighted "D" Lites have been
shining every evening for many
years.
... Linda's 'Yard- Arts' begai-in
Linda Gowens' front yard about
16 years ago. and then moved.
to a little shed, before being
transferred to a pole barn as
the small endeaMor grew-into a
thriving business.
Gowens' late husband, Gene,.
wanted to start a business for
his wife that she could enjoy
and continue on her own. The
couple have had many businesses
endeavors and, according to
Linda, her husband ne'er wanted
to do anything small.
"Heliked to do everything big,"
Linda said of her late husband,
%who passed away in 2004.,
This year has been a little
slower for Linda's Yard Arts, but
she says she still has her loyal.
return customers.
"We are better than department
stores because we hate better
follow-up customer service,"
Linda said.
Linda's Yard Arts has hundreds
of lighted yard displays to choose
from that can range in price from
,several tens to several hundreds
of dollars. There's something
for everyone depending on their
budget. Linda's YardArts carries
a wide range of lawn animals,
mailboxes, sidewalk fountains
and other holiday d6cor.
Most of their yard decorations
are shipped in as cast aluminum
pieces and the lights are
assembled in their building.

Linda's Yart Arts grew to fill this barn.


The yard' art business is a
family tradition. Just a mile
down the road from Linda's
Yard Arts is Lori's Lighted "D"
Lites, owned b) Linda's stepson,
Gene Gowens II, and' his wife,
Lori. Lori's prides itself on being
unique and creating most of the
designs themselves. Gene began
\welding his own creations and
now creates 25 new designs a
year.
The business had its humble
beginnings in the Waldo Flea
Market. The success of their
business is in large part due to
their ability to create what the
customers want. If you can dream
it, Gene can weld it.
Lori's Lighted "D" Lites also
has many repeat customers from
the surrounding Jacksonville and
Gainesville areas. They receive
orders via the Internet and have
shipped pieces all over the
country.
Their yard art can be animated
and for any occasion.
"The animated .ones have
become really popular," said
Gene. -
Weddings, Christmas,


Halloween and even sports team
mascots are some of the unique
orders created at Lori's. Prices
can range from $10 to what ever
your pocket book_ might.allow.-..-.
M-any of the yard art designs
can be seen from the highway,
but customers can also stroll
through the 10,000 square-foot
showroom. The showroom is


darkened so the displays can be
clearly viewed, creating a lighted
wonderland.
Linda's Yard Arts and Lori's
-b-ighted --"D'-Lites--are -loca~
traditions and bring joy to this
corner of the world all year long.

drought
BY CLIFF SIMELLEI
Telegraph Staff IIWrer
SNew Bradford High School
band director Jonathan Hall is
-tri\ ing to create a consistent
program and to build a strong
foundation for the future.
Earlier this year, he admitted
the program will have to take
baby steps toward that end, but
this year's band students took-
a giant step recently by earning
a trip to the state
competition- Bradford's first
time qualify ing for state in 19
years.
-"It's a really, really big,
massive accomplishment that
we were just really excited
about," Hall said. "I think the
kids just took away so many
valuable lessons of how hard
work and -working efficiently
pay off."
The state competition was
held Nov. 22 at Lakewood
Ranch High School. in
Bradenton. Bradford was the
onl\ school at the competition
that had not been to the state
competition in at least two
years. Bradford placed 18" out
of 24 schools.
For .a program that has had
no consistency -as of late,
anything accomplished this
year would have been valuable
as Hall heads into his second
year as director. The trip to
state, however, does change
things a bit.
"It means we have
something even bigger to build
off of," Hall said. "No matter
what would've happened, we
could've left this season
building on something. This
just gives us an elevated
platform to build off of."
SHall, who has, been at
Bradford High School since
January, is the program's third
director in four years. He has
expressed his desire to stick
around and help the program
grow. Working alongside
Bradford Middle School
director Dustin Adams-the
two went to school together it
Missouri State University-


Hall hopes to build a larger

BAND
Continued from p.1B
the band has 53 members.
The two band directors have
one-, five- and 10-year plans irt
place, but Hall admitted he had
no idea what to expect when
his band went to perform at the
Oct. 25 St. Augustine
Marching Band Festival. It.
was there that Bradford earned
its state-qualifying score.
"It really didn't register at
first," Hall said. "The kids
went crazy as soon as they
heard. They knew. I didn't
really realize what was going
on."
The experience should serve
the band well for _the
immediate future as the
program loses just seven
seniors,
"It's a big springboard,"
Hall said. "You often hear,
'Seeing is believing.' We try to
preach to them, 'Believing is
seeing.' If you believe in
something, you're going to see
the results."
The results may not always
include a trophy or a trip to
state, but the band students
nowv know the level of hard
,--, ,work that is required-to give
them a chance to achieve such
results.. Hall has no reason to

"We may not go to state next

Tigers beat district foe for first win


BY CLIFF SMELLEY

Alvin .ernigan scored 19

first game of the season,
defeating District 6-3A
opponent Pierson Taylor 64-41
Dec. 5 in Lake Butler.
It \\as a game the Tigers (I-

Dec. 9) led from start to finish.
They built a 17-3 lead in the
first quarter, getting six points
and eight rebounds from
Jernigan. Then, when the
Wildcats pulled to within eight
in the second quarter, Union
put together an 11-2 run.
Jernigan hit a 3-pointer
following a steal by Shamari
Holland, while Darius Corbitt
scored two straight baskets off
of rebound putbacks. Corbitt's
second rebound score put the
Tigers up 31-14.
Jernigan helped the Tigers
get off to a fast start in the
third quarter. He scored all 10
points during a 10-3 run that
opened the second half. Corbitt
and' Holland each had a steal
during the run, which was
capped by Jernigan's rebound
putback, putting Union up 44-

hting for YOU!

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer,
Keystone Heights High
School softball pitcher Jessica
Knight has been a bundle of
nerves, and the season has yet
to begin. What had Knight
nervous was the prospect of
not getting a chance to play in
college. Then, when the
chance became a reality, she
was nervous about signing her
letter of intent.
Well, all that's behind her as
she can now focus on her
upcoming senior season.
Knight signed that
aforementioned letter of intent
Dec. 2. She will attend Warner
University in Lake Wales after
graduating from Keystone.
"It's amazing," Knight said.
"I couldn't have gotten this far
without my friends, family and
all my coaches."
Knight said she had a goal of
playing in college, but became
nervous toward the end of last
season because she wasn't sure
she would get that opportunity.
However, Warner head coach
Shawn Gary liked what he saw
of Knight during an open
tryout in September. She did
well as she pitched to
Warner's current players, Gary
said, but the coach said it's not
so much what Knight can do
now but what she can
eventually do.
"We're looking for players
at our school who we can
invest some time in and fully
develop as players," Gary said.


"Basically, her potential is off
the chart."
Gary said he likes adding
players to his program who go
on to do things on the field
they didn't think they were
capable of. He talked of one
player on his team who did not
pitch her senior year of high
school, but went on to earn all-
Sun Conference honors this
past year. Then there's his own
daughter who had never hit a
home run in her life, but was
able to deliver a two-run shot
in this past season's Region
XIV championship game.
"That's going to be the same
thing with Jess," Gary said.
"You're going to see her do
things I don't think people
really realized she was capable
of just because of the
atmosphere (at Warner) and
the coaching," Gary said.
'Knight is coming off of a
season in which she recorded
107 strikeouts, but she is a
relative newcomer to pitching.
It was not until between
Knight's eighth-grade and
ninth-grade years that she
expressed the desire to give
pitching a try, which had
Keystone head coach Kathy
Smith concerned. She thought
that was too late for a player to
try to develop as a pitcher.
"It takes a lot to develop all
those pitches, but she has,"
Smith said. "She has gotten out
there and worked really hard.
She's one of the hardest
workers on the team."


Man is a shrewd inventor, and is ever taking the hint
of a new machine from his own structure, adapting
some secret of his own anatomy in iron, wood, and
leather, to some required function in the work of the
world.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
1803-1882, American Poet, Essayist


Kni g ht, who has also stood
out o ffiensively with a batting
average of better than .300
each of the past two seasons,
said h e r approach has been "to.
be op, e to any suggestions, to
listen tco what my coaches tell
me an cI work as hard as I can
to do it ."

Thc ,;e are the kinds of words
Gary ill kes to hear.
"S1he "'s obviously very
coach,a ble," Gary said. "She's
the ty p e of kid who's going to
do w h atever you ask them to
do. l-lhnestly, in this day and
age, t h at's really hard to find."
As of right now, Knight said
she h a:s a pretty good rise ball,
which is her "weapon."
How, ever, she plans to keep
working hard to improve her
over il I game.-
"Y.o u can never be as good
as ycou want to be," she said. "I
pretty v much want to work on
ever) t hing."
Ncov that the ink has dried
on tlhe letter of intent, Knight
can' concentrate on her last
seasc! at Keystone. That is all
she's thinking about. She has
not g i ven much thought yet to
what i't will feel like to step out
onto 'the field as a Warner

University Royal, but she
ventu r ed a guess.
"1i'ii sure it will feel
amazing and awesome to have
accomplished so much," she
said.


More knowledge may e gained of a man's real
character by a short cor, versation with one of his
servants than from a fc r mal and studied narrative,
begun with his pedigree a.'nd ended with his funeral.

Nitrate pollution a concern


Be aware of what you put into
Florida's rivers.


Another first
The Telegraph, Monitor and Times have published
several pictures recently of boys who have killed
their first deer. Now 8-year-old Denlen Conner joins
the group. He killed this doe Nov. 21.

BY RACHEL CRANE
Special to the Telegraph
There are many
environmental issues that go
unnoticed every day. One of
these issues is nitrate pollution
of rivers, which has been
affecting Florida for years and
is increasing with time.
Nitrogen pollution is the
product of both natural and
anthropogenic (human-based)
sources. .-
Dr. Mark. Clark, an
extension specialist in
wetlands and u\aler quality and
an assistant professor at UF in
the Soil apd Water Science
Department, said some of the
natural sources of nitrate
pollution are rainfall that hits
the soil and nitrogen fixed in
the atmosphere. Some of the
anthropogenic causes are
fertilizer and waste from
animals and humans.
Nitrogen' is an essential
element 'to life on earth;
however, like anything else, an
excess amount can be harmful.
Sometimes, things that appear
clean and healthy are in fact
lacking the, appropriate
nutrients to: grow and thrive to
its full potential.
"If you don't have enough
nitrogen in a lake or river, the
water may ;be clear but not
sufficient in nutrients to
establish a .a health
environment for the fish,"
Clark said.
On the other hand, too much
nitrogen canh cause more: plant
production and algae growth.
The overabundance of plants
can use up more oxygen,
which can leave fish and
aquatic insects without the
sufficient oxygen to live.
According- to Clark, "The
Santa Fe and Suwannee rivers
have both been impacted by
nitrate pollution."
All bodies of water have to
be tested for nitrate pollution,


and there are certain levels of
nitrogen that are acceptable for
drinking, water and water in the
natural environment.
"We are the source of nitrate
levels rising," Clark said, and
local residents can take actions
to prevent these levels from
rising. "If you live in the Santa
Fe watershed, you should think
about not fertilizing your lawn.
If you live there and you have
pets, you should maintain their
wastes to make sure it doesn't
pollute the water."
Nitrate pollution is not a
reaction that occurs all at once,
so the slow effects are often
overlooked. This issue is not
directly deadly to humans,
except as infants; however, "It
can have considerable effects
on the ecos. stem in which we
live," Clark said.
Eric Smith, a manager at a
local tree nursery and an
environmental management in
agriculture graduate from UF,
said. "Steps are now being
taken to ensure that far less
fertilizer finds its way into the
groundwater and therefore the
rivers."
The use of controlled-release
fertilizers and the introduction
of Best Management Practices
have led to drastic reductions
of nitrate levels in agricultural
runoff, Smith said.
Clark said the reason this
issue is so pertinent now is
because of the increase of
pollution in recent years.
"These issues are all on the
rise." ,
Clark also said he believes
that. although awareness is
growing, "Education is not
sufficient to change people's
behavior to help this issue." He
points out that people are not


going to take preventative
measures unless they feel some
sort of connection to the river
such as place identity or
dependency.
Small changes to our daily
lives can do a great deal to
help the bigger picture.
"A lot of times- we don't
become aware of the problem
until it's too late," Clark said.
Robert Beall, whose family
has owned a home on the
Suwannee River for years, has
a special kind of connection
with the river. He is aware of
nitrate river pollution and takes
preventative measures to make
sure he is not contributing to
pollution.
According to Beall, he
would "do anything to help the
river and the wildlife in and
around it." He loves the
Suwannee River and would
hate to see anything
contaminate it.


"I feel that the people that
live on the river have a- close
connection with its well-
being," Beall said.
Clark pointed out that this is
not a small issue. There is a
dead zone the size of New
Jersey in the Gulf of Mexico
-off the coast of Louisiana. The
dead zone is partly a result of
high concentrations of nitrate,
and in many parts of this area
only jellyfish can survive.
Environmental issues that
begin as minor problems often
lead to much larger concerns.
For instance, the nitrate
pollution of rivers can lead to
more major problems such as a
dead zone.
With a sense of seriousness,
Clark said, "Our choices
collectively will make a
difference. This difference will
either be positive or negative."
Rachel Crane is a student at
the University of Florida.

Seaman Hitt
completes basic
Navyi Reserve Seaman
Recruit James B. Hitt, stepson
of Donald L. McGee of
Newark, Ohio and nephew of
Maria K. Gall of Keystone
Heights recently completed
U.S. Navy basis training at
Recruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, Illinois.
During the eight-week
program, Hitt completed a
variety of training which
included classroom study and
practical instruction on naval
customs, first aid, firefighting,
water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also placed


on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations". This
exercise gives recruits the
skills and confidence they need
to succeed in the fleet. "Battle
Stations" is designed to
galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice,
dedication, teamwork -and
endurance in each recruit
through the practical
application of basic Naval
skills and the core values of
honor, courage and
commitment. Its distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed to
take into account what it
means to be a sailor. Hitt is a
2003 graduate of Newark High
School, Newark, Ohio.

Nothing will ever be
attempted if all
possible objections
must first be overcome.
Samuel Johnson 1709-
1784, British Author.

The way to get things
done is not to mind
who gets the'credit for
doing them.

1893, British Scholar.
