County might suspend impact fees for a year


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The county commission is talking
about a moratorium on collecting
impact fees as a way to stimulate jobs
and economic growth; and moreover, it
would like the city of Starke to do the
same.
Impact fees were approved in
anticipation of a growth spurt in
Bradford County and the demand that
would place on infrastructure, but
that growth hasn't happened. Instead,
development has experienced a decline.
Commissioner Eddie Lewis brought
up the subject of the moratorium, saying
he was looking for ways to help people in
difficult economic times and encourage
business and home construction.
County Chairman Doyle Thomas
said he agreed with the moratorium
whole-heartedly.
Attorney Terry Brown said a
moratorium was possible and has been
discussed in other counties as well. He
advised that any ordinance imposing
a moratorium include a time limit
for commencing construction once
a permit is pulled so people cannot


pull construction permits during the
moratorium for building projects they
don't intend to begin in the near future.
Delayed construction would defeat the
purpose of the moratorium, which is to
spur growth and job creation now.
Pointing out that temporary
suspension of the county's $550 impact
fee for a new single-family home
was not much in the way of stimulus,
Commissioner Ross Chandler said
a moratorium wouldn't make the
difference in his decision to build a
new. home or not. Commercial impact
fees, which are based on square footage
instead of individual unit, could be a
different story if there was anything
in the way of commercial construction
taking place in the county. According
to Zoning Director Nora Thompson,
there has probably been just one new
business constructed in unincorporated
Bradford County over the last two years.
Most new businesses locate inside the
city limits of Starke, which has utilities
as well as its own impact fee schedule.
The concept of suspending impact
fees is great, Chandler said, but would
be limited in its effect.
Commissioner John Wayne Hersey


had a somewhat different perspective.
Hersey agreed $550 wasn't much money
and only amounted to 10 or so nights
of dining out in today's economy. He
said for the small amount of money the
county is actually collecting versus the
accounting headache, of administering
those fees, the county would be better
off without them.
Impact fees are higher in the city of
Starke-more than $3,000 for a new
home-and Lewis said he would also
like to see the county commission send
a letter to the city of Starke asking it
to temporarily suspend impact fee
collection as well. Thompson said an
individual who recently came to pull a
permit to build a new house in the city
said he had to spend more than $6,200
in impact and other city fees before he
could even pull a construction permit
for the home.
Chamber of commerce member
Tommy Tomlinson said Lewis' idea
represented a good gesture for county
leaders to show they are willing to "do
what ever it takes" to turn the economy
around. Tomlinson said the chamber
intends to do what it can to attract new
businesses to the community.


Thomas said one of the points made
at a recent chamber visioning session
was the need to create more incentives
for people and industry to locate here,
He said when other areas waive fees as
an incentive to new businesses, local
government never, misses that revenue
because the new business generates
revenue for the county in other ways.
New businesses can lead to new residents
and additional housing construction,
which means more property tax money,
sales tax money, etc.
Chandler said for too long the county
has failed to offer real incentives. A
moratorium on impact fees now is just
"muddying the waters," he said. If the
commission is going to do something,
then it should do something that will
really invite businesses-something
more than just suspend impact fee
collection.
"That's been my whole thing all
along, but we never talk about that,"
Chandler said. "Again, I agree with the
concept, I just don't think you're going
to see that make a big difference."
Still, Lewis said it was the only
thing he could come up with as a show
of good faith to the public that at the


same time would not cut deeply into the
county's budget.
Commissioner Lila Sellars said it
,Would show people that the county
commission wants to do something to
help arid is starting with impact fees.
"You've got to start somewhere," she
said.
Thompson suggested talking to the
city first since the building office has
to collect and maintain the fees for the
city and county.
"It's kind'of hard to charge one person
when you're not charging another," she
said.
Thomas said he didn't think it would
hurt to talk to the city about it. City
commissioners are in the same position
with government revenue generation
being dependent on the state of the
local economy.
Chandler said it wasn't the county's
place to ask that of the city commission.
He said if the county was going to take
this step, it should stand on it's own.
"Hopefully that puts some pressure
on them to do something," he said.


Fire/EMS station might be in store for Sampson City


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


Emergency Management Director
Brian Johns approached the county
commission Monday seeking
permission to pursue quotes on a
metal building that would serve as the
official fire station for the volunteer fire
department in Sampson City.
The county fire council placed the
fire station at the top of its priority list
last year, but there was no money to
move forward with a purchase. Johns
is looking to spend funds the county


received from the Federal Emergency
Management AgeQcy as reimbursement
for its role in fighting wildfires in 2007.
There is also money forthcoming for the
cleanup work performed in the wake of
Tropical Storm Fay last year, as well as
additional money the county is owed
from the 2007 fires.
The initial reimbursement amount
was around $390,000 out of which the
county's costs had to be repaid. There
was some money left over, however.
Sampson City Volunteer Fire
Department has operated for years
without adequate housing for its


equipment. In addition to finally
providing the department with a station,
Johns said the building.could include
a bay to house a future EMS unit and
crew at the location. Doing so would
reduce response times to that portion of
the county.
"We are having a lot of calls on the
south end of the county in the Brooker
area where it takes a long time for one
of our ambulance! to get there," Johns
said.
Ultimately, the recommendation to
locate an EMS crew there would have
to come from the EMS director who


would need support, including funding,
from the county commission. At
minimum, .however, a metal structure
could provide shelter and protection for
the fire department's equipment.
Johns will bring back prices for
buildings. with and without space
for an EMS crew so the board can at
least pursue its commitment to the
fire station even if there isn't enough
funding available for a combined fire-
rescue station.
The station would be located at the
intersection of Southwest C.R. 225 and
C.R. 227. The county purchased the


land back in 2005 with the intention of
eventually locating a fire station there.
Site prep will be performed by the
road department and inmate labor.
Johns said the county has also made
first cut in a grant program that will
provide funds to purchase a new tanker
truck. The truck could cost as much as
$250,000, Johns said, and the county
agreed to pay up to $12,500 in matching
funds toward the grant.

Road paving wish list submitted to Adkins


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Rep. Janet Adkins told county
leaders in December to prepare
a list of projects that could
potentially' be funded with
stimulus money from the federal
government, and the county
has responded- with quite a list
indeed.
Bradford's entire list is made
up of road paving projects-41
roads to be exact, ranging in
length from a tenth of a mile to
2.6 miles. The estimated total
to pave or resurface all of those
roads is around $5.7 million.
On Monday, the county
commission approved of the
list of roads, which will now
be forwarded to Adkins. If the
state is awarded stimulus money,
projects from this list and others
around the district could be
eligible for funding.
In no particular order, the
roads listed include:
SW 161st Street
NW 180th Street
NE 185't Street
NW 41s Avenue
SW 104th Avenue
SE 150"h Avenue

"We owe it to our predecessors

Citizens are the customers,
Smith said, and they fund law

synonymous with customer
service," he said. There is no
room .in the profession for
those who treat citizens rudely

'Empathy and compassion are
requirements of the job.
. From this point forward it will
be unacceptable to tell a member,
of the public, "There's nothing I
can do." That's the last thing a
:citizen wants to here, Smith said.
If an officer truly feels there's
nothing he or she can do to help,
they are to put the sheriff in touch
with that individual. Every effort
must be made to help, even when
law enforcement isn't the answer,
whether it's linking citizens to
social service agencies or just
offering advice.

shot at receiving funds in hopes
that something will come of it.
The county has needs and would
like to get its fair share, he said.
While these are priority
infrastructure projects, that is not
to be confused with the county
commission's priority road
list-a list of roads by district
that must meet a set of criteria
established by resolution and
have board approval in order to
receive county funds. The final
two roads on the current priority
list are featured on the list above
in case federal stimulus money
is allocated to Bradford County.
However, the county has already
set aside funds to pave Rising
Road (NW 180'") and Wiley Kelly
Road (SW 16Pt), and to finish up
the paving of an earlier' project,
SMark Lee Starling Road (NW-
185'"). It Wi'll proceed with those
priority projects whether or not
federal funding is awarded and
even begin work on formulating
a new priority list in accordance
with county codes
Assuming no federal funding
is received, any new priority road
projects will be completed as the
county has the funds to do so.
The county also asked for
Adkins' support of state programs
that have provided funding for the
county, including the Department


of Transportation's SCRAP and
SCOP paving programs and the
revenue program for fiscally
constrained counties.

Road project

to be bid
The county commission
decided to advertise for bids on
the. Rising Road, Wiley Kelly
Road and Mark Lee Starling
Road projects ...
There's only one .potential
problem: the roads are already
under contract.
In November, the county
commission approved a contract
with Florida Highway Products
to have the roads paved using the
chip seal process, a process that
.falls short of traditional asphalt
' paving but one that was supposed
to save money and thus translate
into more dirt roads being paved
Now the county is being told
that the cost of asphalt paving
may have come down enough to
make it competitive. In order to
know for sure, the county will


call for bids on the cost of asphalt
paving.
"We. just want to make sure
we're getting the best product at
the best price for the taxpayer,"
Carter said.
There was some question about
the appropriateness of doing so,
but commissioners ultimately
made that call, indicating they
wanted to make the best use of
taxpayer money by finding the
-most economic route to getting
the roads surfaced.
Commissioner Ross Chandler
said he was fine with calling for
bids unless the county faced a.
legal challenge. Commissioner
Lila Sellars said it wouldn't hurt
to see what the prices are and if
legal issues arise then the county
can proceed based on the advice
of its attorney.
The chip seal contract was not
awarded after receiving sealed
bids. Instead, the contract was
awarded to Florida Highway
Products as a.sole source provider
of the product.


thati that," Smith said.
Latonya McBride, a former
classmate of Smith's, kept her
promise to him to perform if he
won the race to be sheriff. She
sang twice, includingthe atjonal
anthem.
Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier
led Smith through the oath of
office and said the best advice
she could offer was to never do
anything without a lot of thought
and even more prayer. .
Smith's pastor, Rodney Coe
of First Baptist. Church, offered
the invocation Tuesday night,
asking for a special- blessing
for the sheriff and his family.
Kiser ended the night with the
closing prayer, requesting that
everyone hold hands as he asked
for a blessing of protection on all
of those who uphold the law in
Bradford County.

Vet memorial


has a home


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

On the eve of its next
fundraising event, Hampton
Veterans Memorial Fund Inc.
has learned the monument it is
raising money for will be placed
in Santa Fe Cemetery off of C.R.
18.
Cemetery trustee JohnCampen
informed memorial fund founder
'Jim Mitzel in a letter that the
board met last month to discuss
the request to place the veterans
monument there. According
to Campen, all of the board's
trustees were in agreement to
allow the monument to be placed
in a prominent location of the
board's choosing.
"It is very honorable to you
and to all those who have
undertaken this task to raise
the funds necessary to erect a
veteran's monument as a tribute


of appreciation to all the military
men and women who have served
our nation and defended our
freedom," Campen wrote. ,
Mitzel said the, nonprofit
group still owes around $3,500
for the monument, much of
which volunteers hope to raise
at this Saturday's shooting event.
Hampton Veterans Memorial
Fund is sponsoring the event
at Bradford Sportsmen's Farm
beginning at 9 a.m. on Jan. 10.
The event will feature 100
targets at more than 14 stations
with cash prizes for the top three
finishers in three classes. There
will also be door prizes live
entertainment and food on sale.
Mitzel said the next fundraiser,
the Red Dog Musicfest on March

Federal $ available for

individuals, governments


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Steven Dicks from the
United States Department of
Agriculture Rural Development
district office in Lake City
told county commissioners
Monday something they like to
hear: USDA has a number of
programs to financially benefit
both individuals and local
governments in rural areas.
Dicks distributed what he
called a "matrix" of programs
that could benefit communities
like Bradford county and its
municipalities. These are all
federal programs putting federal
tax dollars to Work, Dicks said.
There were many more
programs listed than Dicks
discussed, but the programs he
-highlighted did provide,an idea of-
the -scope of finathdi il assistance,
available.
"It is truly said that our
programs will build a community
from the ground up," said Dicks.
For example, there is more than
one housing program to help very
low- to moderate-income rural
households purchase, construct,
repair, or relocate homes.
According to Dicks, one program
can benefit families of four with
an income up to $70,450 a year.
That covers most of the county's
population and qualifies them for
a guaranteed or direct housing
loan based on income with a
fixed rate of interest over 30 or
more years.
The commitment to makingg
housing affordable isn't the only
way USDA Rural Development
can assist residents.: Another
program, the 504 grant.program,
helps low-income senior citizens
receive a grant of ,up to $7,500
grant perform home repairs that
remove health and safety hazards.
Very low-income persons can also
receive a loan of up to $20,000
under the 504 loan program .to
repair or modernize their homes,
by installing or repairing water
and sewer hookups, roofing,


insulation or other basic defects.
. USDA also provides financing
to developers who construct
apartments or other multifamily
housing units for low-income
households. Rental assistance
enables low-income tenants to
pay no more than 30 percent of
their income for rent.
USDA plays a role in'
encouraging economic
development as well, providing
incentives to help establish or
expand businesses and industries.
These are the types of funds public
bodies and nonprofit economic
development groups apply for--
grants that can provide tens of
thousands of dollars to facilitate
business development by
providing facilities, equipment,
infrastructure, technical
assistance, etc. This can help
create or preserve jobs.
There is also money for the
development, expansion or
improvement of utility systems,
and Dicks also discussed public
safety assistance,money available
for public safety buildings,

Construction students shine with special holiday project


While most little girls love to
play house, not many actually have
a house of their own. One lucky
girl, however, did receive her own
playhouse for Christmas thanks
to the skills of Don Thompson's
building construction students at
the Bradford-Union Area Career
Technical Center.
Thompson said when, he was
approached with the request, it
seemed "farfetched" until he
received a check.
Thompson said the students
faced a tight time frame for
learning the techniques of
general building construction in
the classroom so they could then
apply that knowledge to a real-
world project with a Christmas
deadline.
The basic curriculum of the
building construction technology
class includes instruction in
hand-tool and power-tool safety
and reading a tape measure, as
well as a bit about the basic trades
of carpentry, masonry, electric,
plumbing, security and design.
More is learned as students take
additional classes and progress
through the program. The classes
also polish interpersonal skills
like teamwork, Thompsop said.
- Each course in the building
construction is one hour long,
with carpentry and cabinet
making offering the only two-
hour block. Most students are in
high school, but there are a few
middle-schoolers sprinkled in as
well. Students in different classes
and with different experience
levels would take turns applying
what they had learned until the
project was complete.
"We had carte-blanche,"
Thompson said of the playhouse


square playhouse. This seems
extremely tall when one enters
through the tiny 4-foot-high
double doors."
Thompson said the 6-by-6-foot
playhouse is built in the corner of
an 8-by-8-foot deck, allowing for
a porch on two sides of the house.
Each wall has an opening-either
a door or a window-and there
is even a secret compartment
over the porch to store away
special treasures. The one-room
playhouse is insulated and is
completely drywalled with a
textured, hard-coat finish. Each
window and door is framed with
colonial trim.
The house also sports a low-
voltage electrical system that uses


a 12-volt, 50-watt transformer
to run the RV-type bulbs in the
interior sconce lighting fixtures.
Thompson said the new owners
might upgrade that" and even
install a ceiling fan.
The roof sports terra cotta
steel tile roofing panels complete
with a tile design ridge cap, and
the attic is vented and insulated
as with any typical residential
dwelling.
The playhouse is whimsically
designed with features like
batten board and cloud-shaped
windows. It actually slants
toward the front.
"Many helpful persons have
pointed this fact out to us~, but
this is a design fact," Thompson


Seventy students in building construction spent weeks
studying and picking up the skills needed to finish this
fantasy playhouse.'


project. "The classes and I began
by deciding upon the basic shape,
then size and then materials."
He said students would lay out
and cut the wall section material
in the carpentry class, and the,
other four building construction
classes would assemble each
wall within the classroom. Every
class was assigned specific
tasks for each section, and each
component was screwed together
so corrections could be made if
needed.
"This playhouse has enough
screws to build two such units,"


Thompson said.
When one stage was complete
and the next ready to begin.
classes would concentrate on
acquiring the skills necessary to
move forward.
"We did the same planning
when beginning to construct the
trusses,then thefloor,"Thom pson
said. "Our trusses utilize 2-by-4
lumber with wood (not metal)
plates screwed together. We
had numerous reworks, between
the W trusses and the cathedral
trusses to allow 7-foot-6-inch
headroom in a small six-foot-


said, adding that in addition to
the whimsy, the design is also
functional as it allows the .doors
to remain open or closed without
a lock.
"My building construction
students came up with numerous
innovative ideas, from a ceiling
fan to a trap-door for secret
get-a-ways, from no windows to\
porches on all four sides, from
wallpaper to chair railings; from
a kitchen to rocking chairs Ohithe
porches, and many of these ideas
are incorporated into the design,"
Thompson said. "Every student,
of course, does not have the same
strengths and abilities, but I was
pleased to find that every one of
my 70 students contributed in the
building of this playhouse."
When-this house was complete,
Doyle Thomas and T&M Towing
helped transport it to its new
home.
Thompson said the building
construction program is
interested in constructing more
playhouses-two or three a year
even-if .fere is support from
the community to do so.
In the meantime, students will
be working on a'giant Wheel
of Fortune that will factor into
the Bradford County Education
Foundation's fundraising plans
for this year's chamber of
commerce banquet.

What you should know about Cover Florida


Gov. Charlie Crist proposed
Cover Florida during the 2008
legislative session and worked
with legislators to secure its
unanimous approval to make
affordable health coverage
available to 3.8 million uninsured
Floridians.
No tax dollars are :required ,
to make Cover Florida health
insurance plans available.
Instead, insurers compete with
each other to offer innovative
insurance products.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of
Florida and United Health Care
will be available in all 67 Florida
counties, although some counties
will have further options.
Who Qualifies for Cover
Florida?
Cover Florida plans are
guaranteed to Floridians who
have been without insurance
for at least six months-even
if there are pre-existing health,
conditions. If you have gone
without insurance for at least
six months-or have recently
lost your employer-sponsored
insurance-you should learn
more about Cover Florida.
Coverage is voluntary for both
individuals and for employers,
and employees can even take
their coverage with them if they
change jobs.
.What-Is-Covered?
All Cover Florida benefit plan
options include a robust set of
benefits, such as coverage for
preventive services, screenings,
and 'office visits, as well as
outpatient and inpatient surgery,
urgent care, prescription drugs,
durable medical equipment, and
diabetic supplies.
Each carrier offers at least
two benefit options-one
with catastrophic and hospital
coverage and one without. This
flexibility gives Floridians more
choices in selecting the plan that
meets their needs.
Why Should I Consider
Buying a Cover Florida Plan?
Cover Florida gives uninsured
Floridians the opportunity to
take charge of their own health
care. The insurers have designed
creative health insurance
products, so you can find the
access to health care that is
right for you. The cost of plans
varies, depending on whether the
consumer chooses catastrophic
and hospital coverage.
Examples of coverage and
costs include the following:
Available anywhere in Florida
is a plan that offers preventive
coverage to a 25-year-old female
for $83.55 a month with no
annual deductible. A 25-year-old
male would pay $50.75 for the
same coverage. Benefits would
include the following:
a. Doctor Office Visits: $10 co-
pay for a primary care physician
up to 45 visits per year.
b. Preventive Care: $0 co-
pay for preventive services.
Includes annual adult exam;
annual gynecological, prostate,
colorectal, cervical cancer


screening and mammogram.
c. Hospital Emergency Care
Services: Consumer pays 20
percent; insurer pays 80 percent
of charges; up to $1,500 per
year.
d. Prescription Drugs: $10 co-
payment for generic drugs; $45
co-pay for brand diabetic supply
use.
e. Behavioral Health Services:
$40 co-payment; up to five office
-visits per year.
f. Diabetic Supplies: $25 co-
pay.
g. Health Discounts for Other
Services: Enrollees will receive
a discount on other services,
including dental, vision,
wellness, infertility, hearing and
chiropractic care.
One of the plans available
only in Miami-Dade County
offers a 50-year-old female
catastrophic coverage with no
annual deductible for $151.85 a
month while a 50-year-old male
would pay a monthly premium
of $172.11 for the same coverage.
Some of the benefits include, but
are not limited to the following:


a. Doctor Office Visits: $25 co-
pay for a primary care physician
and $50 co-pay for a specialist.
b. Annual Adult Wellness/
Health Exam: $25 co-payment.
c, Hospital coverage: $200
per day co-payment for first five
days of admission; $0 after the
fifth day..
d. Urgent Care:, $50, co-

e. Emergency Services: $200
co-payment; waived if admitted.
f. Prescription Drugs: $10 co-
payment for generic drugs and
plan discounts for brand name

$50 co-payment for office
counseling services; up to $1,200
per year.
h. Diabetic Supplies: Consumer
pays 20 percent; insurer pays 80

Local couple raising 'healthier' beef


BY CLAIRE
WORTHINGTON'
Special to the Telegraph

At Cognito Farm, no
pesticides are sprayed onto the
cattle's pasture, no hormones are
implanted in the cows' ears and
no antibiotics are given to the
cows to ward off diseases.
But their owners say the cows
are healthier than the meat most
people eat.
Cognito Farm harvests what
many call "clean food," and it
is much different from what
you will find at your nearest
supermarket. All of their cows
are grass fed.
Grass-fed meat is becoming a
larger trend, as people become
more health conscious and
focused on issues regarding the
environment.
Grass-fed beef and feedlot beef
are different in the type of foods
the animals eat. Feedlot beef's
diet is mostly grain, corn and soy
because it fattens the cow up in a
shorter amount of time.
"Cows are not designed to eat
seeds," said Jerry Williams, co-
owner of Cognito Farm. "They
are meant to eat grass."
When cows are fed grain they
become ill, he said. Ultimately,
corn weakens a cow's immune
system.
."If you were eating only ice
cream inacrowded dorm standing
in your own feces, would you be
healthy?" asked Cognitio Farm


co-owner, Sam Williams, Jerry's
wife. "That's why they feed the
cows antibiotics."
A diet of corn for a cow is not
healthy. According to the Union
of Concerned Scientists Web
site, 70 percent of our countries
antibiotics- are used in animal
food for that reason.
Jerry Williams said that when
you feed cows antibiotics, certain
bacteria become immune to
them and cause outbreaks like
the strain of E. coli that has been
causing problems recently.
"Normal E. coli dies when it
hits our stomachs because our
stomachs are more acidic than
cows'," he said. "Super E. coli
doesn't, and that is because of
what the cows eat and because
of its immunity to the antibiotics
given to the cows."
Grass-fed cows are healthier
to eat because they have more
conjugated linoleic acids (CLA)
in their system. CLA has been
shown to prevent certain types
of cancer, diabetes and body fat
accumulation.
"Pastured beef has higher
levels [of CLAI in their meat
and milk," said Sam Williams.
"They have natural nutrients in
their meat."
Feedlot cows are given growth
hormones to make them grow
fast and to make them produce
more milk. They also get many
kinds of injections.
"All we give our cows is a
vaccination," Sam Williams

The health benel'fai or eating
grass-fed beef are unmeirous, but
grass-fed beef is also go.-id for
the environment
Industrial farming is depended
on oil, Sam Williams said. It
uses artificial fertilizers that are
made from oil, large amounts of
pesticides that are made from
oil, and oil is used to provide
energy for food production and
transporting animals.
"There is an average of half a
gallon of crude oil per pound of
beef," Jerry Williams said. "The
average cow travels 3,000 miles
before it is in the grocery store."
Grass-fed beef on the other
hand does not use fertilizers for
the grass, large equipment or
pesticides to keep insects from


eating the grass.
Jerry and Sam Williams said
that they use the animals in the
land and do not use big equipment
to haul food to the cows.
"We don't bring the food the
animals," Sam Williams said.
"They walk to their food."
On farms where cows and
other animals are grass fed there
is not a dependency upon oil.
"Our beef is born here and only
travels 60 miles to the butcher
and back," Sam Williams said.


Jerry and Sam Williams
"Jerry cuts hay, but that doesn't
use nearly as muich oil as an
industrial farm.
Sam Williams said that because
industrial farms are so dependent
upon oil, there will be problems
just like there have been in many
countries around the world.
"There will be a food crisis
when we run out of oil," Sam
Williams said. "There have been
about 30 countries with food
riots."
Sam and Jerry Williams said


the problem is industrial farms
are dependent upon oil and when
the price of oil goes up the price
of food increases.
"It's always important to know
what goes into your food," Jerry
Williams said. "It's good to buy
your food from someone you
know and have researched."
Clair Worthington is a
University of Florida student
and a neighbor of Jerry and Sam
Williams.


Timeless toys, priceless lesson Library
book club


BY MELISSA PYLE
Telegraph Staff Writer

Most travelers on U.S. 301
probably recognize the Raggedy
Ann and Andy dolls alongside
the highway as a nostalgic toy,.
bringing childhood memories
to life. For Vionna Tew, the
dolls are more than a toy; they
are personal creations that have
provided her financial support
for years.
After being laid off from her
job, 32 years ago, Tew received,
her first unemployment check
of $18. She took the small check
and used all of it to buy supplies
to make her first dolls. She sold
those dolls and made $85..After
entering craft shows, she realized
that the small investment could
give her a reliable income. An
income doing a job she enjoyed.
Tew says her sales are down.
They have been affected by
the slow economy, but tough
times don't intimidate Tew. She
has survived many difficult
circumstances. She recalls being
a child in a large family with
seven children living through
the depression, but says she's.
stronger for the experience.
"Hard.times I've had made my
life easier today," she said.
Tew said she has lived by the
motto "Where there's a will,
there's a way." As a- young wife
she first used her creativity to
make crepe paper roses that she
sold door to door. The money
earned allowed her to have
enough cash to pay for her travel
expenses to see her military
husband.
Tew says she is not getting rich
selling dolls along the highway,
but they help pay the bills. Each
doll has significance, from the
small $15 version to the large
8-foot doll, which goes for $300:
But she still likes to keep the
unique ones.
"One had a birth defect, so I
kept her," Tew said of Raggedy

All booklovers are invited to

fabric used for her face.
You can find Tew alongside
every weekend, especially
around the holidays, parked in
front of her old shop. Hurricane
Katrina ruined the shop, but this
hasn't slowed her down.
"These dolls have been a
blessing," said Tew with a smile.
The hand-painted smiles on the
faces of her Raggedy Anns and
Andys have been placed there by
a lady who has discovered what
it means to work through though
,times. Tew has not allowed
herself to be overcome by life's


challenges, but has worked
creatively to rise above them.

Regional News
News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area



KH native helps numbers tell the story in sports books


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
What was the score? How
many yards did a certain
player pass for or rush for?
How many runs did a player
drive in? What was a pitcher's
ERA? What was a player's
performance at the free-throw


line?
So much of sports centers on
numbers-many people are
downright obsessed by them.
Therefore, Keystone 'Heights
High School graduate David
Horne and two of his friends
put two and two together and
have started writing a series of


books devoted to sports and
numbers.
Horne, Daniel Brush and
Marc Maxwell created the
"Sports by the Numbers"
series-books on a particular
sport or team that assign a fact,
piece of trivia, record, etc. to a
specific number. The books


David Horne (second from left) is pictured with fellow authors Dan Brush (far left)
and Marc Maxwell (far right). The trio is pictured with former Sooners coach Barry
Switzer.


are composed of 10 chapters
detailing each number from 1
to 1,000.
The series began with a
book on University of
Oklahoma football, which has
since been joined by books on
University of Georgia football,
NASCAR and the New York
Yankees. More are scheduled
to come out this year.
"We feel like each book
continues to get better," said.
Home, a 1988 Keystone
Heights High School graduate.
"We've got five more books
coming out in the spring, with
more scheduled for next fall.
It's exciting."
Sports and numbers may
have seemed like a winning
formula, but Home said the
quick success has been
somewhat of a surprise. He
and his friends were
envisioning a more modest
beginning.

The number 3-jersey for
Babe Ruth, which was retired
by the Yankees in 1948. The
number 12-home run titles
for Ruth.
The numbers 3 and 12 are
also noteworthy in that they
relate to the number of books
Home and his friends first had
in mind when they approached
a publisher and what that
number wound up actually
being.
"We pitched it as an idea


that this could be a sports
series, but we were thinking
three or four books, or
something like that," Horne
said. "When they offered us a
contract, they said 12. It just
happened a lot faster than we
thought."
The idea to write such books
came about when the trio
was-and this should be no
surprise-watching sports.

Horne: well-traveled since leaving area


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The quick success of the
"Sports by the Numbers"
series of books has provided
quite a bit of excitement in
David Home's life, but his life
was already pretty exciting as
he and his wife, the former
Lisa Bryant, have had the
chance to travel and,
experience other cultures.
Home and his wife have
spent the past nine-years living
abroad. Home currently
teaches eighth-grade history at
Ramstein Air Base in Germany
after working as an athletic
director in Korea.
"It's been an amazing
experience," Home said.
He was content with his life
in Keystone, Horne said, but
he could not pass up the
opportunity to leave and go to


Korea in 1999, where he
worked as an athletic director
for a high school for three
years.
Getting there was not easy.
"We got stranded in Tokyo,"
Home said. 'Our plane broke
down. It was an adventure just
getting there."
If he and Lisa wanted to
return home to see their
families, it was a 41-hour trip.
Still, Home said the trade-off
was-worth it.. He visited too
many countries to count, he
said, taking sports teams to
places such as China,
Singapore, Japan, Taiwan and
Guam.
"To take 40 students on a
.weeklong trip to Japan for a
soccer tournament or to take
40 middle school students on a
study trip to Hong Kong for a
week-those kinds of


experiences really shape your
perspective on things. It was
phenomenal."
Sports has always been a big
part of Home's life, but since
his move to Germany, he has
been strictly a .teacher. He
admitted he misses coaching
and going on trips with ball
teams, but his current job is
fulfilling. He not only teaches
middle-school students at
Ramstein Air Base, the U.S.
Air Forces.. headquarters in
Europe, but teaches college
classes for military members.
"It's a very cool thing,"
Home said. '"To be able to
teach not only the children of
military personnel who are
deployed, but to actually get to
teach the military personnel
themselves is a pretty
remarkable experience."
Life in Germany has been


different from life in Korea.
For one thing, Lisa has been
able to work again in the
medical field. She is employed
at Landstuhl Regional Medical
Center.
"In Korea, Lisa was not able
to work," Horne said. "There's
nothing there. There was
literally nothing for her to do."
Then there's the matter of
travel. Home said returning to

Andrews
Center
concert is 'All

"All Strung Out" will be
performed by the Gainesville,
Chamber Orchestra this
Sunday, Jan. 11, at' the Santa
Fe College Andrews Center
Cultural Building on 209 W.
Call St. in Starke.
Admission is free for this
concert, which is a part of the
ongoing Bradford Fest.
:'We call it 'All Strung Out'.
-because we're spotlighting
three new string performances
and because we're premiering
a concerto that hasn't been
played since the 1800s," said
Virginia Lamboley, personnel
manager for the Gainesville
Chamber Orchestra.
Will Kang is the orchestra's
new concert master. He is a
former violinist with the
Florida Orchestra in Tampa
and now studies medicine at
the University of Florida.
Yefim Romanov is a new
violinist with the orchestra.
Lamboley said, "He's a
hotshot young virtuoso who
won the UF ,concerto
competition last October."
Mark Lewis is the
orchestra's new violist. He is
studying for his master's
degree in music education at
UF.
The orchestra's world
premiere is "Concerto Per il
Contrabasso and Orchestra" by
Domenico Dragonetti.
"Our principal bass player,
Steven Landis, found this
composition in a music archive
in England," Lamboley said.
"Photocopying was forbidden,
so he spent days painstakingly
transcribing it to bring it
home."
Other composers featured in
the concerts will be Luigi
Boccherini, Johann Sebastian
Bach, Antonin Dvorak and
Claude Debussy.
Lamboley said the orchestra
is highlighting different
families of instruments in its
performances this year. As
strings are being featured this

wanted to," Horne said. "That
was how it started, right there
in the restaurant. We started
writing it out on napkins."
The three men had a draft of
the first chapter of a book on
Oklahoma football three weeks
later. Two different publishers
offered contracts six weeks
after that.
"It happened pretty quickly,"
Horne said.
,Starting out by writing a
book on Oklahoma football
made sense since Horne and
his friends were there in
Norman taking classes. Since
they were students at
Oklahoma, it allowed them
access to many helpful people
at the school, including the
football team's head coach.
The number 100-walks for
Bernie Williams of the Yankees
in 1999.
In terms of the start of the
"Sports by the Numbers"
series, the number 100 is pretty
special in that it was how
many of the Oklahoma football
books that were personally
signed by Sooners coach Bob
Stoops to raise money f9r his
charity, the Bob Stoops
Champions Foundation.
Stoops also wrote the foreword
to the book.
The trio also met with
former Sooners coach Barry
Switzer. They had lunch at his
house, with Switzer reading
the book and pointing out his
personal involvement and
memories of some of the
book's entries. Switzer even
penned some words of praise
for the trio to use in promoting
their book.
Horne said it was an
experience he will always
treasure, but meetings with
Switzer and Stoops were just
part of an overall surreal
experience.
"We did several book
signing in the Oklahoma
area," Home said. ",We even
did signing on the field with
the OU football team. They
had their media day. That was
pretty cool."
However, Home, a huge
baseball fan who played and
coached the sport at Keystone
Heights High School, admitted
the book on the Yankees was
the project he was most
passionate about up to this
point. The :bookrhas also been'"

The number 50-saves
compiled by the Yankees'
Mariano Rivera in 2001.
What else does the number
50 represent? It represents just
how popular the "Sports by the
Numbers" Yankees book has
been.
"Over the past few weeks,
.on any given day, you'll find
it's one of the top 50 baseball
books on Amazon," Home
said. (The same can be said of-
the Oklahoma football book
among college football books.)
The trio knew the Yankees

NASCAR-book would have.

the States is no longer a big
deal. It's just a seven-hour
flight.
In fact, Home makes quite a
few trips, whether it's to the
States or other places. He takes
classes and teaches at the
University of Oklahoma, ,
where he is working toward a
doctorate degree, and attends
various conferences. Home
said it sometimes feels like
he's hardly working.
"It's funny. I probably miss
more days of school than is
good," he said. "I don't think
teachers here would ever think
of missing school as much as
teachers do over there. Life is
so different. The demands of
the job are so different over
there, too. It's hard to describe.
You do have a lot of different
responsibilities and a lot of
different things that come up
that you're asked to do."
Since Home and his friends
Daniel Brush and Marc
Maxwell, with whom he writes
the "Sports by the Numbers"
books, have lives outside of
their ongoing studies at the
University of Oklahoma, it can
be a little challenging to work
on upcoming books.
"We speak on the phone
every day," Homrne said. "On
Sunday, ,we probably e-mail
20 to 25 times. We've got so
much going on. We divvy up
the responsibilities. We each
have different things we excel
at. We focus on our strengths.
"The best part is we work
exceptionally well together."
Though he lives in


books on Oklahoma and
Georgia football. Home
admitted working on the
project, therefore, was a little
intimidating since the book
would be read by a lot more
people.
However, it was also a fun
time for Home, who made
several trips to New York. He
spent a lot, of' time talking
about the Yankees with the
New York Post's Mike
Vacarro, who wrote the
foreword for the book, as well
as touring Yankees Stadium.
He sat in one of the dugouts,
looking out onto the field and
thinking of the history that had
played out on the field. He
went into the Yankees
clubhouse, which offered him
a special opportunity-to see
the locker of Thurman
Munson, who was killed in an
airplane crash in 1979.
Munson's locker, with his
number 15 still on it, remains
vacant to this day.
"They don't allow
photographs of it," Home said.
"If. you want to see it, you have
to actually go see it."
Such experiences, coupled
with talking to those who give
tours of the stadium, were very
instrumental in writing the
book.
"There are parts of (the
'book) where you can definitely
tell I was in New York when I
was writing it," Home said.
As special as he thinks the
Yankees book is, Home thinks
the book on the Boston Red
Sox, which will be released in
April, will be just as special.
"You don't necessarily have
to be a Red Sox fan," Horne
said. "It's like the Yankees--
you can't tell the history of
baseball without talking about
the Yankees and the Red Sox.
The greatest moments in
baseball history invariably
come back to Boston or New
York."
***
The number 10-jersey worn
by Phil Rizzuto of the Yankees,
which was retired in 1985.
Home is tied. to the number
10 in that even though the first
"Sports by the Nuimbers"
series was published a year
and a half ago, he has been
writing for more than 10 years.
In 2005, Home's essay, "The
Memory of, Hope," 'earned
honorable mention in the
memoir category of the 740"
annual Writer's Digest Writing
Competition.
"The sports book was a
detour T'did not see; coming;"
- Hotrne said. "It Was Vt'the same
time as'~ was'getting my foot
in the door with the other
writing."
Home said he hopes to one
day have a less-involved role
in the "Sports by the
Numbers" series so he can
focus on his other writing
projects, which include going
in a bit of a different direction.
"I've always been better at
non-fiction," Home said. "It
was non-fiction that I won my
award. for, so it's funny that
what I really, want to do is
write fiction."
For now, though, Home's
focus, when it comes to
writing, will center on the
"Sports by the Numbers"


Germany, Home said he was
able to follow the Keystone
Heights High School baseball
team's run to the state
tournament last season via the
Internet and through phone
calls and e-mails from his
father, Larry. Home may not
be a coach at Keystone any
more, but he wanted the
Indians to win it all more than
anything.
. "When I heard they lost, it
was just as devastating as if I
was still a coach there," he
said.
Though Keystone lost in the
state semifinals, the players
have lifelong memories
because of that experience,
Horne said. He said he still
remembers the trip Keystone
made to the state tournament
when he and current Keystone
assistant coach Rick Julius
were on the team.
"I think I can give you a
pitch-by-pitch account of the
final game we played when we
were seniors," Home said.
"You don't forget that sort of
thing. ,It has an impact on
you."
Though he never tasted what
it was like to win a state
championship, Horne said he
will know what it's like if a
future Keystone team does so.
He has a lifelong bond to the
program.
"Even if you aren't a
physical part of it, just
knowing that those guys have
followed after you and are
pursuing the same goals and
same dreams you had, you
want them to achieve it so
much," Horne said. "If at some
point they do, I suspect it
would feel very much like it
would if we had won when we
were in high school."


championship in three years..
Even though Homrne is
working on a doctorate degree
at Oklahoma, he is rooting for
the Gators, even though he
wears an OU hat almost
everywhere he goes. That led
to an amusing incident at a
local Wendy's in which Horne,
wearing his OU hat, was
approached by ,a child who
was showing off his T-shirt
that proclaimed, "Bob Stoops
wears Tim Tebow pajamas."
Home cannot say enough
good things about Stoops and
how he helped support the
""Sports by the Numbers"
Oklahoma book, but he cannot
bring himself to wish for
Stoops to win his second -
national championship.
"I love Bob Stoops," Home
said. "He's done a tremendous
amount for our books. He's
been really kind to us. He's a
good guy, but I'm pulling for
Florida."

"The reality is, when we

said.
That includes one that plays

Auto industry

.trust
If automobile manufacturing
executives want to see the
people responsible for the dire
straits their firms are now
facing, they should look in the
mirror.
The monumental failures of
General Motors and Ford
Motor Co. are directly
attributable to irresponsible
management practices, dating
back to the years immediately
following World War II.
Rather than face their fiscal
responsibility to negotiate
reasonable labor terms, they
took the easy road of
acquiescing and compensated
by raising the price of
automobiles to an
unsustainable price. Couple the
lack of discipline in labor
negotiations with poor product
design and quality in a highly
competitive industry and

thoughts for
the new year
Dear Editor:
As we go into the new year,
there are many things we can
reflect oh that have happened
in our little county that we can
be thankful for and hope to
never see again.
We no longer have the most
tax-abusing sheriff that we
have ever seen and a county
commissioner who wasted or
misused our.- tax money more
so than any other
commissioner in recent
memory. Well, the past is over
and done with and hopefully
the debts our commission has
hung around our necks will
soon be paid off and we can
hope that, for once in a coon's
age, we taxpayers will be
given some attention and our
taxes will be reduced (well, I
6cah dream, can't I?).
- In this past year, several
things were pointed outtoL the
commission thatt-hey could do
that would benefit the
taxpayers and the county. They
could establish a motor pool

The Starke Recreation
Department is currently
accepting registrations for its

There are six leagues for the
following age groups, with
April 30 as the age-

child has never played-before,

failure is a certainty.
This is not an attack on
labor. When coming to the
table to-discuss new contracts,
labor leaders are obligated to
seek the best.possible terms for
the people they represent. It is
not their duty to consider what
is best for the corporation.
Management and labor are
adversaries-not buddies and
not even friends-in
hammering out working
agreements and contracts
because they represent
separate entities, both essential
to the manufacture of products,
but with differing constituents.
English Lord Acton
observed "power tends to
corrupt and absolute power
corrupts absolutely." He could
have been thinking about Big
Business and especially of
manufacturing and its
treatment'of workers. Ten- and
12-hour days were common
six days a week. Labor was
paid $2-$3 per week. Child
laborers were chained to their
machines. Without question,
Big Business was in control
and workers had no voice in


and have every county-owned
vehicle parked at night and
checked out when needed on
county business during the
day. Complete records could
be kept, having the vehicles
cleaned and serviced. There is
no justifiable reason; for any
county vehicle to be used
when an employee goes: to
lunch or to be driven home at
night or around the area as
though it was personally
owned. If an employee lives
outside the county, he or she
should be driving something
other than a county-owned and
maintained vehicle. Vehicles
that are county-owned should
be audited regularly to assure
that we are getting the
maximum service for the
minimum cost.
The taxpayers interest
should alwaysbe put above the
government's and its
bureaucrats. Every elected
official should dedicate
themselves to reducing the size
of government.
I hope our new sheriff will
establish a new policy for
deputies in plain, unmarked
cars. They should not be
allowed to attempt to stop a
vehicle unless they are in fresh

the workplace until Samuel
Gompers came on the scene in

undertook the task of

The manufacturing North
was fertile ground for
organizing workers, unlike the
agricultural South, and the
differences continue today,
although the gap is narrowing
and union labor has made
inroads throughout the nation.
Union membership declined in
the 1950s and decreased
further as textiles, electronic
and other industries moved
offshore, pushing unions to
recruit in new fields-
including governmerit-to
maintain viability.
It is in the best interest of the

stopping. If your life or that of
your family is at stake, you
have an obligation to protect.
In China, 2009 is the year of
the ox and I would hope that in
Bradford County it is the year
of intelligent, taxpayer-
oriented public officials. With
the economy the way it is and
the high unemployment rate,
every effort should be made to
put as much public work in the
private sector as possible.
With as much work that
would be put into the private
sector and under private
contract, if surprises me that
we haven't had at least one
person -smart enough ,to
advance one or two ideas
along those lines.
It is probably as I have said
before, they are - more
interested in protecting the
bureaucrat than the taxpayer.

Times Staff Writer
On the morning of Saturday,

the Piney Bay Hunt Club on

A 14-year-old female got
behind the wheel of a pickup
truck and put it into reverse to
allow another vehicle to pass
on a narrow tram road. The
report from the Union County
Sheriff's Office states that the
vehicle had backed up
approximately 10 feet when
the teen driver inadvertently
ran over the torso of seven-
year-old William Shands
Howard.
A witness at the scene took
Howard to Lake Butler
Hospital where he was
stabilized and later transported
by Union County EMS to
Shands UF in Gainesville for
further treatment. One of the
victim's grandparents, Lori
Howard, said that as of
Tuesday morning, the child
remains in pediatric intensive
care, but is progressing. A full
recovery is expected.

She later hit a long jumper to
make it a three-point game,
while a basket by Jamika
Ruise put Union up 50-45.
Slocum made her fifth 3-
pointer of the game to pull
Bradford within two, then tied
the game with less than a
minute remaining when she
rebounded her own miss and
put it back for two.
Watkins was fouled with 32
seconds remaining, but she
missed both of her free-throw
attempts. Couch rebounded the
second miss, but Bradford's
Farah Duhart ..rebounded a
.missed Union field goal.
Bradford had an inbounds
play underneath the Union
basket with 13 seconds
remaining. Couch forced a
jump ball, with the possession
arrow pointing in the
Tornadoes' favor. With six
seconds remaining, Slocum
was fouled as she received an
inbounds pass, setting her up
for the winning free throws.
The Tornadoes were
dreadful from the foul line,


before recording overtime
wins over Crescent City and
Madison County.
Sheffield scored 16 points in
the win over Madison that
ended tournament play for
Bradford. He was joined in
double figures by Yakeem

made three 3-pointers and
scored 13 points after halftime.
Tramaine Harris and CJ.

eight points, respectively,
while Malcolm Moore had
seven and Terrance Davis two.

making just 7-of-22 attempts.
Slocum, however, made her
last four attempts.
Union's performance at the
line wasn't much better as the
Tigers went 9-of-21. They did
have a stretch iri the second
half where they made 7-of-8
attempts, but they went 0-of-3
during the game's final
minute.
Though Slocum scored the
majority of her team's points,
she did. get some key plays
from some of her teammates.
Aside from some timely
baskets by Cragg, the
Tornadoes also got five
defensive rebounds by Duhart
in the second half, while Nessa
Portis grabbed four defensive
boards in the third quarter.

Union's Stewart had
achieved a double-double by
halftime with 10 points and 10
rebounds, but she was not as
effective in the second half,
scoring just three points to
finish with 13. Couch led the
Tigers with 14 points, while
Ruise scored eight in the
second half to finish with 10.
Eight of Couch's points
came in the first half, with four
of those occurring during a 12-
3 run in the second quarter.

mid-range jumper of the
quarter.
