An opinionated crowd of residents attended a meeting Tuesday night to discuss controlling water levels
in Lake Sampson and Sampson River.

Vocal crowd attends Sampson Lake meeting


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


Whether you still call it Three Pipes,
the dam or, as the water management
district refers to it, the Lake Sampson
Control Structure, chances are if you
have an opinion about it, you were at
the public hearing held about its future
on'Tuesday night.
John Dinges of the Suwannee River
Water. Management District fielded
questions and welcomed input from,
residents in a packed auditorium at the
Santa Fe College Cultural Building
while his associates collected contact
information, passed out surveys and
took notes. He said their input would
play, a role in the decision making
process.


Overall, residents seem to agree on
one thing: they do not want the gated
culvert under C.R. 225 that drains
from Sampson Lake to be replaced by
another structure.
That said, residents do not agree on
the future of the existing structure.
Lake dwellers and,, those upstream
from 225 tend to favor repairing it
and leaving it as is. They were joined
by some downstream who just want a
standard schedule for when the gates
can be opened and closed to allow
sufficient water to flow all the way
through Sampson RiCer. and. not just to
the dam.
Some downstream, on the other
hand, expressed an interest in seeing an
end to any regulation of the water flow
and favored pulling out the structure


entirely.
Everyone had something in common
though. As one individual pointed out,
whether you're a lake person or creek
person, everyone wants water.
Three concrete box culverts sit
underneath 225. The gates that cover
those culverts regulate flow, although
when the water level is high enough, the
water can flow over the top of the gates.
The water management district has a
technical assistance role to. discover
what is the best way to manage the lake
levels.
.There has been a structure controlling
water flow from Sampson Lake for
decades. After rusted gates could not
be raised and homes flooded in the

Man gets

30 years


for sexual

abuse
A 43-year-old' Bradford County
man was sentenced to serve 30 years
in prison for multiple counts of sexual
battery.
George Randall Crews was first
arrested in May for raping a 13-year-
old. The victim reported the crime after
she was able to escape from Crews,
according to deputies. The victim stated
Crews offered her money for sex, but
when she told him to stop, he forced her
to have intercourse. Crews denied using
force and stated he had been drinking
beer and did not recall exactly what
happened.
A week later, Crews was charged
with 30 counts of sexual battery
involving multiple sexual acts, including
intercourse. The two victims, ages 10
and 12, were exposed over a period
of several years, according to court
reports.
On Dec. 30, Crews pled no contest
to several counts of engaging in sex act
with a child by familial authority. He
also pled no contest to two counts of a
seven-count indictment of possession of
a firearm by a convicted felon.
Crews was sentenced as a sexual
predator by Judge Peter K. Sieg. He was
ordered to serve 30 years in the Florida
.Department of Corrections with 331
days credit for time served in the county
jail. He must/pay court costs.



Schools out

another

-half-million

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
On Wednesday, Florida legislators
meeting in special session were
expected to finalize budget cuts and
amendments that would account for a
$2.3 billion reduction in revenue.
Bradford County School District
Finance Director Julee Tinsler detailed
the legislation for the school'board
Monday night. Last year after the state's
budget had been set, the governor asked
state agencies to plan for additional
cuts if revenue projections came in
lower than expected, and Tinsler said
that holdback is essentially what the
district is losing. It represents about a
.half-million cut to the county, she said.
Workforce development cuts around
$38,000 will impact the Bradford-
Union Area Career Technical Center.
Tinsler said she's in the process of
truing up the budget, but she believes
she will be able to cut that amount.
Overall, district funding is down $1.8
million from last year, although\Tinsler
said that also includes reductions
for declining enrollment. Primarily,
however, it is the result of state funding
cuts.
The state is going to be watching the
financial health of the school districts:
According to Tinsler, there has been
concern about dwindling unreserved
fund balances in districts around the
state. Unreserved fund balance is that
money the district has on hand that has
not been committed to expenditures. A
close eye will be kept on those districts
whose fund balance drops below 5
percent of the budget. If it falls below 3
percent, the superintendent must notify
the school board and the education
commissioner.
Falling below 2 percent means the
district must notify the Department
of Education and present a plan for
rectifying the problem.
"If the plan is not accepted by DOE,
they will appoint a financial emergency
board, which just doesn't have any good
bells ringing to it," Tinsler said.

Reading First schools among state's best


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD -County elementary schools


Telegraph Editor
Thirteen Florida school
districts for being in the top
25 percent of all Reading First
districts i,n the state, and Bradford
County is' among them.
Bradfordi increased the
percentage of students reading at
or above grade level and reduced
the percentage of students with
serious reading difficulties at an
exceptional rate in its-,Reading
First schools, placing.it among
the top performing districts in
the state.
The Reading First schools in
Bradford County are Hampton
Elementary School, Lawtey
Community School and Brooker
Elementary School.
Reading First was implemented
in 2003 in the state of Florida.
Today it serves a total of 570
schools in 45 districts. Reading
First is designed to assist Florida
school districts and schools with
the implementation of proven
methods of scientifically-based
reading instruction in classrooms
in order to prevent reading
difficulties in grades K-3.
By implementing Reading
First, these three Bradford


increased grade-level reading
performance by more than
17 percent. They reduced the
percentage of students with
serious reading difficulties by
more than 11 percent ''
Assistant Superintendent
Lisa Prevatt called the news an
affirmation of the dedication
and hard work of the district's
teachers.

Strides made
in equity
According to Prevatt, the
district's annual equity report
commended the district for
improving the number of.
black and Hispanic students
participating in honors level
courses.
The district is not in corrective
action in a majority of the areas
monitored. Instead, Prevatt said
the district is making reasonable
progress in certain areas,
including grade three FCAT,
grade 10 FCAT reading, grade
eight Algebra 1, dual enrollment,
employment equity, etc.
There is one area the district
still needs corrective action is


the: number of female students
participating athletics. Finding
athletic areas that interest them
and getting them to participate
is an ongoing issue, Prevatt said.
To help remedy this, she said a
survey was sent out as well as
information on when athletic
tryouts were taking place.

Grant could
provide
healthy snacks
Food Service Coordinator
Dotty Rondelli reported Monday
that district elementary schools
are eligible for a program that
will provide snacks of fresh fruit
and vegetables to students next
year.
For example, Rondelli said
Southside could receive more
than $42,000 under the grant.
Hampton would receive around
$13,000.
The point is to make sure
students get a snack every day.
Since principals must
coordinate the program,
Rondelli said it was up to them
to determine whether or not their
schools will participate.

move was unrelated to Thomas'
and Lewis' conduct, then
-Bradford County Commission
Chairman Rqs. gCha .Lr
reassigned the two and placed
himself and Commissioner John

The landfill board has since
adopted a policy that would
prevent board members from
bidding in surplus sales.
Lewis said three of the items
he purchased remained in
storage at the landfill and he
asked that they be put up for sale
again, with the proceeds going
toward an appreciation event
for landfill employees. Thomas
asked the same for one of the
items he purchased that is still at
the landfill.
Lewis also asked the board and
staff to look at offering reduced
disposal rates for debris related
to new construction in the tri-
county area as a way of trying to
stimulate economic development
in the area. O'Neal said he
would look into such programs

Hampton marshal

saved from choking


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Hampton Marshal John
Hodges might not have seen
the new year but for the quick
thinking and proper training of a
local restaurant manager.
Hodges said he was having
lunch at Western Steer on New
Year's Eve when food became
lodged in his throat. Wanting to
save hi mselfsomeembarrassment
and thinking he could correct the
problem himself, Hodges left
his table and entered the men's
room.
He couldn't dislodge the
blockage, however, and drinking
water only made the problem
worse. Hodges couldn't breathe.
The marshal said he staggered
into the lobby grabbing his throat.
The cashier saw that he was
choking and called for restaurant
manger Ken Weaver.
"I took off back into the
bathroom," Hodges said. "I
didn't want anyone watching me
dying out there. By that time I
had probably been without air for
a minute and a half."
Weaver entered behind Hodges,
grabbed him from behind
and performed the Heimlich
maneuver and delivered several
back blows until the blockage
was clear, and Hodges could
breathe again.
Weaver, who said he learned
the Heimlich maneuver during
a training session, has had to
perform it on choking customers
before. That doesn't make him
any less modest about saving

late 1990s, the county replaced
the gates and sought a permit
to operate the structure. The
permit only allowed the gates to
be opened during an emergency
declaration when weather
conditions give rise to fears of
flooding
The railroad culverts Ifrom
which the -Threej Pipcsw pame
originated, once located
downstream of the control
structure were removed around
two years ago. As it stands, the
gates at the dam under 225 are
still operational but for one
issue: A blockage beneath one
of the gates is preventing it from
closing. There have also been
problems with people tampering
with the gates and opening them
without authorization.
Bradford County owns the
water control structure and wants
more authority regulating its use.
The issue of whether or not to
replace the gates with a fixed
structure- arose when the county
sought an operating schedule
from the water management
district to determine when
best to open and close them.
Determining that schedule would
entail a lot of scientific work-and
cost, so the permit has been put
on hold while other options are
explored.
One of the options is to replace
the existing gates with a fixed
structure.
Referring to past maintenance
problems, one resident compared
Three Pipes to a dead horse in
the Kentucky Derby and asked if
a spillway wouldn't better serve
the purpose of regulating water
flow.
In fact, the water management
district contracted a study to
look at the effect of replacing
the gates with a fixed structure.
Such a structure doesn't have the
operational issues as the existing
gates, Dinges said,, which are
prone to tampering ind damage.
A fixed structure would result
in a simpler system without
questions about when to raise
and lower gates, he said.
Some pointed out that past
engineers has made exactly the

Hodges' life.
Hodges, on the other hand,
is grateful, to say the least, and
considers Weaver's life-saving
assistance a miracle.
According to the Mayo Clinic,
because choking cuts off oxygen
to the brain, first aid must be
administered as quickly as
possible.
The universal sign for choking
is hands clutched to the throat.
This is the signal you should
give if you are choking. If you
think someone is choking but
they do not give the signal, look
for other indications, including
the inability to talk, difficulty
breathing, the inability to cough
forcefully, blueness of skin,
lips and nails, and the loss of
consciousness.
If choking is occurring,
the American Red Cross
recommends a "five-and-five"
approach to delivering first aid:
-First, deliver five back blows
between the person's shoulder
blades with the heel of your
hand.
-Next, perform five abdominal
thrusts (also known as the
Heimlich maneuver).
-Alternate between five back
blows and five abdomninal
thrusts until the blockage is
dislodged.
If you're the only rescuer,
perform back blows and
abdominal thrusts before calling
911 (or your local emergency
number) for help. If another
person is available, have that
person call for help while you
perform first aid.


opposite recommendation, which
is why the current structure was
chosen.
Some protested, that a fixed
structure would result in flooding
on the lakeside, drought on the
creek side, or the accumulation
of debris in the waterway, but
Dinges explained that there were
multiple ways. to engineer the
structure. Just because it is fixed
doesn't mean it cannot be designed
to-ItlOw "Somfeflow Through for
those .yho.liyeqdownsteaMrn. As
for flooding, any structure would
have to be designed to dispose
of floodwater quickly enough to
prevent damage to neighboring
properties.
Some interests admittedly
compete against each other,
such as flood prevention versus
having enough water to' access
and navigate the lake. Various
interests don't always match up
perfectly, Dinges said, but they're
all a concern. A survey passed

Although we

it is time to

pastures to
prepare for the upcoming spring

Soil tests provide information
on soil pH, nitrogen, phosphorus,
potassium, magnesium and
calcium. Increased fertilizer
costs put a strain on pasture
management budgets; therefore,
knowing what is needed can
prevent over or under applying
the appropriate products.
Using a soil test, producers
can determine what each pasture
needs; however, taking a soil test
may seem intimidating. In the

samples should be collected. If

HOW TO TAKE A SOIL SAMPLE

1 Obtain sampling bags and mailing boxes from the Extension Offi ce.

2 Determine the area to take a representati ve sample.

3 Do not collect samples from wet spots, fence rows, feeding areas etc. The
sample you collect should be the average of the fi eld.

4 Use a soil test probe or shovel to take the sample. 7;

5 Take a core of soil 6 inches deep from at least 15 spots in each fl eld.
Mix together the cores from one fl eld and let them dry for 2 to 4 hours.
Once the sample has dried, place about 1 pint of the sample in the
sampling bag.

6 Identi fy the sample so you will know which fi eld it was taken.

7 Fill ,ut the paperwork and include it and payment in the box with the
sample. Routi ne soil test costs $7.00 per sample and take about two
weeks to process.

8 Send samples to the lab for analysis.

Cooperative connects libraries in tri-county area and beyond


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer

A library cooperative is created
when several libraries share re-
sources while retaining their own
administrative independence.
The New River Public Li-
brary Cooperative was formed
in 1996 by the county commis-
sions in Baker, Bradford and
Union counties. The idea of the
cooperative began when one of
the libraries was in danger of los-
ing state aid because it could not
afford to employ a director who
had a master's degree in library
science-a degree that Ginny
Bird holds. Together, the three
counties share Bird as director of
the cooperative.
The state requires the tri-coun-
ty cooperative to have a central
advisory board through which
state funds can be distributed to
the participating libraries. The
co-op advisory board consists
of two commissioners from each
county who make the decisions
and polices to make the three
county libraries consistent.
Bird has served 20 years in the
business of public libraries and
has seen all three libraries reach
many milestones. Bird worked
diligently to obtain grants and
federal funding to open Union
County's first public library in
1989. Hired as the library's first
director, she has been instru-
mental in helping it grow from a
1,300 square-foot building hold-
ing just over 3,000 books to a
3,200 square-foot building with
more than 30,000 books.
Now she anxiously waits as
Union's new building-nearly
three times larger- gets closer to
completion.
Bradford was the first of the
libraries in the co-op to grow
into a new building. Located in
Starke, the county's first public'
library opened in 1975 with the
capacity to hold 20,000 books. In
Oct. 2007, the Bradford County
Public Library completed its
new 19,480 square foot building,
nearly five times the size of the
previous building.
Baker County's .library is lo-
_cated.. in Macclenny. -Built in
1908-it,originally served -as -the
IakeVCounty Courthouse until.
1945. In 1970, it became the Em-
ily Taber Public Library. Because
the library is housed in a histori-
cal building, it offers a unique
set-up for displaying library ma-
terials.The former courthouse of-
fices were converted into rooms
that shelve books by genre. For
example, mysteries are all lo-
cated in one room, westerns in
another.
Unfortunately, to keep its his-
torical building status, an eleva-
tor could not be built to allow
access to materials on the second
floor, although library staff mem-
bers are happy to go upstairs and
get materials for patrons unable
to use the stairway., Recently,
the county accepted a $500,000
grant to expand its current facil-
ity, adding an additional wing on
an adjacent lot, Bird said she is
excited to report that construc-
tion should begin in early 2009.
Through the New River Pub-
lic Library Cooperative, Bird has
chased down and applied for nu-
merous grants and other types of
state and federal funding to assist
the co-op's three thriving librar-
ies.
One of the support services
provided to the citizens of the co-
op is a shared catalog. The coop-
erative has an automated catalog
system, and the materials at all
three libraries are made avail-
able for library cardholders in
either Baker, Bradford or Union.
You can search the catalog either
at home or at the library to find
the materials you are interested
in. Thanks to a recent grant, us-
ers can now see a picture of each
book next to its title and read a
brief synopsis of all books avail-
able in the tri-county area.
At home, the NRPLC online
catalog is available at www.ne-
wriver.lib.fl.us.
Through the Web site, users
can search the tri-county library
catalog and, by entering your li-
brary card number, you can place
a hold on an item and choose
which library you wish to pick it


up from.
A library patron in Union
County, for example, can search
the catalogs of all three libraries
at the same time. If a particular
item is not available in Union
but is in Bradford, a free delivery
service will make that item avail-
able for checkout. Users are noti-
fied by e-mail, phone or regular

things.


mail when their item becomes
available for pickup.
(Please note that each library
card holder must obtain their
personal PIN number from the
library to login and use this ser-
vice.)
Also available on the New
River Public Library Web site
is a schedule of upcoming pro-
grams at each library, blogs and
newsletters.
Yet another service available
to cardholders is free access to
a wealth of information through
the cooperative's online data-
base. Included in the database
are access to a collection of on-
line resources, including govern-
ment, history and culture, as well
as FloridaCat, a comprehensive
online catalog of all of Florida's'
library holdings.
"Our directors can also borrow
library materials from other li-
braries in the state of Florida if a
customer has a specific request,"
Bird said.
Homework- help is--another
services available .through the
cooperative's database. Using
your library card number, Info-
trac provides free-of-charge ac-
cess to homework help, health
information and full-text articles
and summaries from hundreds of
magazines and newspapers.
Some of the other services
available through the database
include Heritage Quest, where
you can search U.S. census re-
cords from 1790 to 1930 and on-
line genealogy books. Learning

approximately 30 stops every
two weeks at locations primarily
in Union and Baker counties as
well as providing supplementary
assistance to Bradford County's
own local bookmobile.
The New River bookmobile
serves people of all ages who
may not have access to their
local public library because of
distance, lack of transportation,
disabilities or inability to visit
during regular working hours.
Bookmobile services are avail-
able. free-of-charge to-all library
cardholders in Baker, Bradford
and Union counties. Bird said
two full-time employees work
four days a week running the
bookmobile. It can hold 2,500
books and other special requests.
An entire room at the New River
Public Library Cooperative of-
fice is dedicated to hold materi-
als rotated for use on the book-
mobile.
Library materials available
through the bookmobile include
adult and children's fiction and
nonfiction books, videos, DVDs,
books on tape or CD and periodi-
cals. Requested items can also
be obtained through the co-op's
bookmobile. All items can be


checked out for four weeks and
either returned to the bookmobile
or one of the tri-county libraries.

Students bring gifts and joy
to Ronald McDonald House


Starke Christian School
students recently delivered four
carloads of Christmas gifts and
baked goodies to the Ronald
McDonald house in Gainesville.
Instead of exchanging gifts with
each other this year, SCS students
opted to give gifts to sick and
hospitalized children. This
project has been part of a school-
wide focus this year to teach
the children the joy of giving
to others-and the importance of
service.
The Ronald McDonald House
provides a home away from home
for the families of children who
are hospitalized and receiving
treatment at Shands Gainesville.
The gifts donated by Starke
Christian School were placed in
the "Christmas Room" where
parents can go and "shop" for
gifts for their child. Gifts not
used during the holidays are used
for birthdays and throughout the
year for pediatric patients who
need a little something to help


BUDGET
Continued from Page 1A

In spite of the lost revenue,
the legislation does offer some
benefits to public schools. For
example, new textbook purchases
will not be required this year for
language arts, music, physical
education and health.
Some pre-K funding changes
should also prove beneficial. The
amount of funding coming to
the region for pre-K has actually
been increased by more than
$200,000, said Tinsler. A larger
number of kids will be allowed
per class during summer sessions
as well.
One area that could help other
districts, although its not an
issue for Bradford right now, is
the commissioner of education's
ability to waive a percentage of
the budgetary penalty for not
meeting class size reduction
standards. In the past, the
commissioner could forgive 10
percent of the penalty. If the
legislation passes, that will be-
increased to 50 percent, Tinsler
said.
The state is also further
loosening tip the restrictions
on the expenditure of local
'ixes collected for capital


lift their spirits.
SCS students were given a
mini tour of the house after they
delivered the gifts. They
were excited to see where their
gifts would be used and to hear
how their efforts .would help
make Christmas brighter for a
sick boy or girl.
In addition to the gifts and
sweet treats, two large bags of
pop-top tabs were also donated
to Ronald McDonald House by
Starke Christian School. Students
collect these tabs throughout the
year. The tabs are recycled and
the monies collected are used
to help defer the costs of running
the house.
If you would like to join SCS
in this effort, you may, donate
your pop tabs to the school
office. Starke Christian School
is located at 507 W. Call St. in
Starke and can be reached by
phone at (904) 964-6100.

improvements. Now districts will
be able to make certain software
purchases with those dollars and
use and even larger amount of
that money for property casualty
insurance premiums. The state
will also allow the purchase of
maintenance vehicles with those
capital funds, something the
district could use, Tinsler said.
She also said the legislation
would allow school board
members to voluntarily reduce
their salaries if they so choose.
K-12 education isn't the only
loserintherevenuedeficit.County
health departments, hospitals,
prisons, universities, etc. will"
all be affected. Legislators have
also discussed raising penalties
for speeding and other traffic
violations to raise revenue. The
state will make up the rest of
the deficit by tapping reserves
and shifting money within the
budget.
Judy Dukes with the local
teachers union urged parents
and others to contact legislators
and ask them to start funding
education instead of cutting it.
I "Schools cannot continue
at this rate, much less other
services," Dukes said.
She said a rally has been
planned for the end of February
on the campus of the University
of Central Florida in Orlando.

Social

Security offers
safeguards for

all the stages

of your life
By Donna Maitland
Social Security District Manager,
Gainesville, FL
Each stage of life-youth,
middle age and retirement-
comes with its own set of
financial concerns. Luckily, just
by having a better understanding
of the Social Security program
you should be able to calm some
of those concerns.
The first thing you need to
know is that Social Security is
much more than a retirement
program. Of the 50 million
Americans receiving Social
Security benefits, nearly one-
third are not retired workers
or their dependents. They are
severely disabled workers and
their families, or the survivors
of a deceased worker covered
by Social Security. These non-
retirement Social Security
benefits can be especially
important to young workers
because about one in eight young
people will die before retirement,
and about one in four will become
disabled.
While the death of a husband,
wife, or parent is emotionally
devastating, it, can often be
financially devastating as well.
Social Security provides monthly
survivors benefit checks to help
the family of a deceased worker.
continue on.
Social Security disability
protection is equally valuable.
Relatively few workers have an
employer-provided, long-term
disability policy. With Social
Security, however, the average
worker has the equivalent of a
disability insurance policy that
would pay monthly benefits
to both the worker and his or
her family, based on his or her
lifetime earnings. So you can
rest a little easier knowing that
Social Security provides some
measure of security if life does
not turn out as planned.
On the other hand, if you
do work and retire as planned,
Social Security is the foundation
for a secure retirement. For the
average wage earner, Social
Security will replace about
40 percent of pre-retirement
earnings. And you can earn a
higher benefit by choosing to
retire a little later instead of a
little earlier.
The Social Security statement
that you receive in the mail each
year provides an estimate of
your retirement, survivors and
disability insurance benefits.
If you'd like to try out some
different scenarios and see how
different retirement ages and
future earnings may change your
retirement picture, visitthe online
retirement estimator at www.
socialsecurity.gov/estimator. It's
a quick, accurate, and easy way
to plan for your retirement.
If you would like more
information about these Social
Security programs you can visit

Newspapers Connect Communities


Strong communities are all about strong relationships and connections;
citizens and their government; citizens and community businesses; local
government and local businesses; citizens and local, social cultural
institutions. Nothing facilitates or creates those relationships and
connections like America's community newspapers. In cities and towns
served by a community newspaper of 25,000 circulation or less, 86 percent
of the population read a community newspaper each week. No other media
has that kind of reach,into and throughout those communities.
This is among the findings of the 2008 research conducted for the National
Newspaper association by the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri
School of Journalism at the University' of Missouri. The findings are
consistent with two earlier research efforts by NNA and RJI's Center for
Advanced Social Research.
The connections between community newspapers and their readers, and
the resulting connection of those readers to local advertisers, remains strong
in communities across America. To many readers, the weekly advertisements
are a form of news, weekly specials or sales, the launch of new businesses
and services, the introduction of new products, and even a barometer of the
economic health and vitality of the community.

Along Main Street Across The Nation
* 79 percent of adults 18 and older read the classified ads.
* 73 percent read the grocery or supermarket advertisements and/or inserts.
* Half rely most on their community newspaper for grocery shopping
information. That's twice that of the next most relied source: In-store
promotions. And 10 times more than the third most relied upon source:
Direct mail.
* 72 percent of community newspaper readers read the hardware and home
improvement advertisements.
* About 28 percent rely most on their community newspaper for home
improvement shopping'information. That's about 50 percent more than the
next most relied upon source: In-store promotions. And three times more
than the third most relied upon source: The Internet.
* 66 percent of community newspaper readers read the department store ads.
* 65 percent of community newspapers readers read the discount store ads.
* 62 percent of community newspaper readers read the public notice ads.
* 81 percent believe government should be required to publish public notices
in the local newspaper:
About 78 percent of all adults said they rarely or never use the radio to
make purchasing decisions; 69 percent said they rarely or never use direct
mail to make purchasing decisions; 59 percent say they rarely or never use
TV to make purchasing decisions; 58 percent said they rarely or never use
the Yellow Pages for buying decisions; 41 percent said they rarely or never
use the Internet for buying decisions.
However, 71 percent found newspaper ads helpful in making purchasing
decisions. That compares with almost 50 percent in 2007 and 4.l percent in
2005.
"It's clear that newspapers provide a strong connection between local
readers and local businesses and services," says John Stevenson, NNA


president and publisher of the Randolph Leader in Roanoke, AL.
This year's survey asked questions that had been asked in a similar
Canadian study.
* About 79 percent of respondents said they would rather look through
newspaper ads than watch ads on TV. This compares to 61 percent in the
Canadian survey.
* Three-quarters of adults said they would rather look through newspaper
ads than view ads on the Internet.
, A little more than 70 percent somewhat-to-stronigly agree that they go
looking for and through newspaper ads. This is comparable to the ,
Canadian response.
* Nearly 70 percent somewhat-strongly agree that they enjoy reading
advertising in their local paper. This compares to 66 percent in the
Canadian survey.
"Buyers read newspapers." said Brian Steffens, NNA's executive director,
"and our research shows there is no stronger media for connecting a
community, its people, government and economic vibrancy."
* About 78 percent of those surveyed said they planned to purchase health
or medical products or services in the next year.
* 73 percent plan to buy women's clothing.
* 60 percent plan to buy men's clothing.
* 58 percent plan to purchase "travel," air, hotel, cruise, rental car, etc.
* 52 percent plan to purchase lawn and garden-supplies or services.
* 41 percent plan to buy electronics, Newspapers and the Internet were tied
as the i-ost relied upon source for electronics shopping information.
* Nearly 35 percent plan to buy cell phones or cell phone service.
Newspapers and the Internet were tied, right behind in-store promotion, as
the most relied upon source for cell phone shopping information.
* 34 percent plan to buy financial or insurance products or services.
* 25 percent plan to buy furniture.
* 28 percent rely most on their community newspaper for information for
home furniture shopping. That's about 4 percent more than the second
most relied upon source: In-store promotions; and more than twice that of
the third most relied upon source: The Internet.
* 16 percent plan to buy appliances.
* 26 percent rely most on their community newspaper for information for
major appliance purchase, 7 percent more than the next most relied upon
source: In-store information and the Internet (tie); and four times more
than the fourth most relied upon source, magazines.
* 11 percent plan to buy a used vehicle.
* 9 percent plan to buy a new vehicle.
* Readers rely equally on newspapers, dealerships and the Internet for
information for new car purchases (about 18 percent each).
"That's a solid shopping list for Main Street America." Stevenson said,
"And community newspapers help both buyers and sellers."

Disposal costs should remain stable at landfill


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The New River Solid Waste
Association shouldn't have to
raise disposal costs at the tri-
county landfill for member
counties much, if at all, over the
next 10 or so years, according to
a recent study.
The landfill is a joint
undertaking of Baker, Bradford
and Union counties. Currently,
member counties pay $24 a ton to
dispose of waste. There are also
disposal contracts with Alachua
and Levy counties, out of region
counties that pay more to bring
their waste to New River.
Steve Laux of Jones Edmunds
and Associates, the engineering
firm that carried out the study,
said the purpose was to look at the
adequacy of the landfill's tipping
fees relative to the board's ability
to support operational costs now
and the future.
The model looks at what is
expected to take place at the
landfill through the year 2020.
Even thought it appears the
landfill is doing well and making
money, landfill Executive
Director Darrell O'Neal the
study was launched to determine
if enough revenue and waste were
being collected to support future
plans and obligations.
"What the rate study does
is give us the opportunity to
look at our future costs, our
future expansions, our future
construction, are we going to
have the cash to do those projects
at that time, and what is our
tipping fee going to be at that


time," O'Neal said.
The disposal rate is expected
to increase as it has since 1992,
with the exception of a period
when commercial waste from
Alachua County was diverted to.
another landfill. Disposal rate
is important because it drives
the amount of revenue being
generated by tipping fees,and that
revenue is needed to cover present
and future costs. Three-quarters
of the landfill's waste comes
from Alachua County. Baker
and Bradford contribute around
7 percent each, while Union
County is responsible for around
4 percent of the total waste. Levy
County's contribution is around
8 percent.
Laux said the growth rate is
expected to be around 2.2 percent
a year.
The tipping fees themselves are
not expected to grow excessively.
Right now, member county's
pay $24 a ton for disposal.
That should continue through
at least 2014, according to the
study, when a $2 a ton increase
is possible. Laux cast doubt
on whether even that modest
increase would be necessary,
however. The projections about
inflation, interest rates and other
factors are conservative, he said.
By the time 2014 rolls around, the
board may find that no increase
is needed.
"I wouldn't be worried about
that. It's a fairly modest increase
if it happens, and the likelihood
of that happening is probably not
that great," Laux said.
New River's costs are 61
percent operational. Another


25 percent is spent on capital
improvements, and 14 percent
is set aside as mandated for
eventual landfill closure and
long-term care.
Laux said tipping fees are
adequate and 'added that the
landfill is a top-notch facility.
Not only has the landfill won a
major management award, but
also its tipping fees. .are among
the lowest around, he said.
"You should be very proud,"
Laux said.
Future projects include the
construction.of disposal cells six
(13-15 acres, $3.7 million) and
seven (30-35 acres,' $9.3 million)
at the current landfill site, as well
as the expansion t9 an additional
300 acres acquired from the
state for future cell construction.
However, the landfill has saved
around $3.5 million constructing
most of cells three-five with little
outside help, and similar savings
could figure into future projects
as well.
Originally the study was to
consider the possibility of the
association running all of the
waste collection centers for
member counties and even a
universal hauling operation,
but O'Neal said that path was
abandoned when the numbers
did not support it.

Gas-to-energy
project 'on
track'
Something that did not figure
into the study was additional


revenue the landfill might earn
from selling carbon credits or
engaging in a gas-to-energy
project.
Of the latter, Laux said Jones
Edmunds, working with staff
and the landfill and University
of Florida, is close to having an
option prepared for the board
to consider. It has been working
on putting together an RFP for
vendors who would contribute to
the project as well as a permitting
application.
O'Neal said while staff has
looked at using the gas produced
by the landfill in a project to
generate electricity, the option
of processing, it as a natural
gas alternative is looking more
promising.
O'Neal also said the landfill is
now certified to put its available
carbon credits on the Chicago
Climate Exchange. The problem
is the market has declined.
The landfill is now exploring
certification through a California
market where the price is still
around $5 credit (versus around
$1.50).
The credits are based on the
landfill's voluntary collection
and burning off of gas from the
landfill cells that incorporate the
bioreactor. Instead of burning
it off, there are also options
available for turning it into a
marketable alternative energy
project.
Laux said the permit
application for the landfill gas-
to-energy project would be
submitted this month.
Alachua County also reported
about a solar project at its

CMC Starke plant achieves perfection in safety


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Take approximately 115
people, throw in 4 million
pieces of heavy steel and
welding equipment, factor in
such things as fatigue and just
the general nature of human
beings to make mistakes from
time to .time, and what have
you got? Potential 'accidents
waiting to happen, right?
Wrong, if you're talking
about the CMC Steel Group's
joist and deck plant in Starke.
Its employees have proven that
accidents of any kind can be
avoided-at least for a year.
As a reward, employees
were treated to "safety" steak


dinners Jan. 8, while
representatives of Sen. Mel
Martinez and Rep. Cliff
Stearns were on hand to offer
congratulations.
Mark Ripke, the Starke'
plant's general manager, said
those congratulations are well-
deserved. He has worked in the
joist business for 35 years and
has never witnessed what his
plant accomplished in 2008.
,His father worked in the
'business and never saw such a
feat.
No one in the joist business, .
Ripke said, has come close to
going a year with no accidents.
He shared that fact with the
employees as they ate, their
dinners.

"Last year's
accomplishment, folks, has
never been done in the joist
business before-not just at
CMC, but with anybody,"
Ripke .said. "To go an entire
year with a perfect record is
astonishing."
CMC's Florida plant has
always set a high bar when it
comes to safety. It was


recognized for being number
one in safety among CMC
plants during the years 1998-
2000 and received an award in
2004 for operating for four
straight years without an
accident that caused
production to slow or stop.

cut his or her finger, for
example, went to the doctor

and got stitched up, and then
returned to work the next day,
that was considered OK.
However, Ripke said now
it's not OK. The bar has been
raised to avoid any recordable
accident.
Employees did that in 2008,
which was composed of
320,000 man hours. They built
more than 160,000 joists and


girders, handling the
aforementioned 4 million
pieces of steel, which Ripke
said was a conservative
estimate.
"Most of the pieces of steel I
mentioned-the 4 million-
were picked up multiple
times," Ripke said. "It's not
just one time. It's a lot of
handling."

"If you build it, they will

The oft-misquoted phrase
from "Field of Dreams" sums
up Terry Elixson's belief as far
as his church-Grace Christian
Fellowship Baptist- is
concerned. He has told his
congregation the size of the
building will determine how
many people God will send.
That certainly seems to be
the case considering the
church's growth in a short
span of time.
For all appearances, the
church, of which Elixson is
pastor, is a small, country
church, yet Elixson said the
church is small only in terms
of its facilities. The church,

SAFETY
Continued from page 1B

As employees feasted on
large steaks, baked potatoes,
baked beans, salad and rolls,
they were read congratulatory


letters by Jennifer Ridgley,
representing Sen. Martinez,
and Jean Clough, representing
Rep. Stearns. Martinez' letter
made reference to the
employees' "astonishing feat,"
while Stearns' letter
expounded on just why going a
whole year without an accident


is so impressive.
"According to the National
- Institute for Occupational
Safety and Health," Stearns'
letter read, "manufacturing and
working with machinery ranks
number three in the amount of
injuries in this country, so it's
a dangerous job. Each year,
over 90,000 employees all
over the United States are
injured while working with
machinery, but not here- in
Starke."
Ripke publicly thanked-
Kenny DeSue and Steve
Underhill for helping the plant
achieve what it did. He called
them the "best safety managers
in the business."
Ultimately, though, thanks
goes to everyone who works
with those 4 million pieces of
steel. The employees
participate in a program in
which they basically police
themselves. They take note of
what the people around them
are doing right and what
they're doing wrong. They
then discuss those things with
each other.
The end result has been a
noteworthy year. Ripke said he
has been involved .with a lot of
good things in his career, but
none compare to working with
the group of employees he
currently works with.
"I want to say you guys
deserve a round of applause
for yourself," Ripke told his
employees.

Online gamer
arrested
in Clay
A 20-year-old Denver man
was arrested Jan. 12 in Clay
County for lewd battery,
traveling to meet a minor and
solicitation of a child.
John B. Coe was caught in
the victim's room by the
victim's mother in Clay
County. The victim, a young
teenage girl, met Coe while
playing an Internet game that
allows participants to
communicate online.
According to Clay County
Sheriff's spokesperson Mary
Justino, this is not the first
time Coe has been caught and
arrested, for targeting a
juvenile female on-line. Coe
was arrested by the Glacier
County Sheriff's Office in
Montana in July 2008
following a similar incident.
Because of Coe's criminal
history and because he
crossed state lines to locate
and sexually batter the
victims, his case will be
handled at the federal level
by the U.S. Attorney. Both
the Glacier and Clay sheriffs
are working with the Federal
Bureau of Investigation in
their respective .states to
compile and share
information on Coe's online
practices.
Coe's computer and other
evidence have been seized by
authorities in Montana. Coe
remains in the Clay County
Jail on $40,000 bond.
Parents are reminded of the
potential dangers and pitfalls
of online gaming sites,
Justino said. Coe used a
gaming site known as
mabinogi.nexon.net, but there
are many others that allow
game participants to
communicate while playing.
This case should serve as a
reminder that parental
monitoring of all, Internet
activity of underage users in
a home is important, Justino
said.

Patrolman Mark Lowery. The
child was seen at 4:47 p.m.
by a patron at the park and
noticed he was unsupervised,
Patrolman Lowery said. The
patron waited for a time with
the child and finally took him
to the police department.
The child was released to
HRS when no one came
forward to claim him,
Patrolman Lowery said.
The father was located
with several other family
members at 9 p.m. at a
basketball game at BHS.
Easley said he had not looked

of his family, Patrolman
Lowery said.
Easley was released from
custody after a $2,500 surety
bond was posted.

The sanctuary/classrooms

undertaken since moving to its

"Massive church growth, to

Of course, what the Elixsons

they're doing is simply
following God's will. That's
why Karen has no worries
when it comes to the new

which the financial aspects of
the project were being

she was thinking in her mind
was that the building would be

going its fourth expansion
a new sanctuary and

approximately 40 members.
Terry said in the last three
years, the church has averaged
50 new members a year. (The
church also reaches a lot of
people through its Web site-
www.gcfbc.org which
receives approximately 1,000
hits a month.)
The growth has made
making five-year projections
almost unnecessary as such
projections into the future
would be quickly met within
two years, Terry said.
Not that the Elixsons are
complaining. In fact, they can
laugh about the fact that they
are constantly relocating
classes in their current
facilities. Karen said when
teachers see her coming, their
thought is, "Oh, gosh, we've
got to move again."
There is no animosity,
though, if a teacher and his or
her class have to move.
Everyone works together to do
what is best for the church.
It's as if everyone is part of
a family, Karen said. That's
certainly how she feels about
the church members. She
expressed as much during a
Mother's Day service when the
mother with the most children
was recognized.
"When it got to that part, I
said, 'That would be me
because these are all my
children.' That's how it has
been," Karen said.
It's a family that provides
support. For example, Terry
said the church has an office

composed of women in the
church who simply volunteer
their time to help out.
"They want to be here,"
Karen said. "They're always
here. That's wonderful."
The church family helps
each other in times of need.
Last year, Terry experienced
the death of his father as well
as the deaths of two good
friends, while also going
through numerous treatments
for skin cancer.
"The church went through it
with us," he said. "The church
supported us. Two months
after I had done my daddy's
funeral, the church came to us
and said, 'You're tough, but
you're not that tough.' They
sent us on a vacation."
Members have shown their
support of the church with
donations toward building
projects, but the church has
also received support from
outside the church from some
unsuspecting sources. For
example, Karen said members
had discussed possibly raising
$30,000 in preparation for
starting this current
construction project. What
type of building would be built
had not even been agreed
upon, but the church received a
sign that it should move
forward in earnest when it
received two free tractor-trailer
loads of lumber from a
construction company in
Atlanta.
"When God sends you
$30,000 worth of lumber, he's
planning on you starting
something," Terry said.
Since Grace Christian
Fellowship Baptist began, the
Elixsons have witnessed
numerous ways in which the
church's needs have been met.


Karen talked of how the
church's goal, when it started,
was to one day have 125
members. However, the church
had no songbooks. The plan
was to ask each family to
purchase two or three
songbooks, but the brother of a
church member happened to
have exactly 125 songbooks to
give to the church.
In another instance in the
early days of the church,
Terry, who was still involved
in the trucking business at the
time, asked a friend of his at a
recycling center to be on the
lookout for any Christian
literature. One day, the friend
called to say he had a bible
Terry was welcome to have. It
was on top of a couple of
boxes and had been run over
by a forklift. When Terry
showed up and the boxes upon
which the bible sat were
opened, he discovered brand
new bibles still wrapped in
plastic.
Oh, the number of bibles he
came home with-125.
"God's blessed us in so
many ways," Karen said.
So much so that the church
finds itself almost constantly
expanding. That's OK, though.
If at some point in time the
new two-story building fails to
adequately meet the church's
space needs, the church will
simply find another place that
will.
"We've said before than
when we outgrow this church
we're just going to buy new
property and start over," Karen
said.
That may, be what it takes
because, after all, as Grace
Christian Fellowship Baptist
seems to be proving, if you
build it, they will come.

KHHS boys force


tie atop district


BY CLIFF SVMELLEY
Telegraph Staffl Writer
Newberry handed them their
fifth loss in nine games, but
the Keystone Heights Indians,
prior to that loss, moved into a
tie atop the District 5-3A boys'
soccer standings with
consecutive wins over
Crescent City and Pierson
Taylor.
The Indians (9-9-2 prior to
Jan. 14) have won four straight
district games and are now tied
for first with Taylor. Keystone
improved to 5-1 in the district
with its 3-1 victory over
Taylor Jan. 9 in, Keystone.
That avenged an earlier loss to
Taylor in December.
Senior captain Justin
Hedding turned in his second
straight hat trick to help the
Indians to the win.
Taylor had been giving up
an average of a goal per game,
but Hedding scored twice in
the first half. His first goal
occurred in the 28th minute off
of an assist from Trey Bland.
Another goal approximately 11
minutes later allowed
Keystone to go into the half up
2-0.
Hedding was at it again two
minutes into the second half
when he scored to make the
score 3-0.
The Wildcats entered the
game scoring an average of
four goals per game. Solid
defensive play from Austin
Groves, Quentin Gilbert and
Logan Middleton helped stop
Taylor advances until the 64'
minute when the Wildcats
scored their only goal.
Keystone head coach Trevor
Waters said goalie Tim
Frysinger played his best game
this season with 19 saves,
many of which were of a
"spectacular nature."
The win was also huge
because five 'younger
players -seventh-graders

one of the
Indians' earlier 4
matches in
December.
Frysinger made
a total of 33
saves in district
wins over
Crescent City
and Pierson
Taylor.


Grimaldo, and eighth-graders
Matt Crane, Logan Stanley and
Ryan Collins-were pressed
into service because of-
injuries. Ninth-graders Tucker
McLean and Matt Machaud
also started.
Prior to the Taylor game,
Keystone had to hold on for a
4-3 win over district opponent.
Crescent City on Jan. 6 in
Crescent City.
The Indians'were hurt by the
ejection of Hedding, who
picked up his second yellow
card on a hard tackle, in the
second half. Up to that point,
Hannah had scored three times
to help Keystone take a 4-1
lead.
Hedding's first goal
occurred in the eighth minute
off of an assist from Bland.
Crescent City tied the game in
the 20th minute, but Bland put
the Indians up for good with a
goal off of an assist from
Hedding in the 26 h minute.
A long ball by Darby Johns
found Hedding, who put the
ball into the net for a 3-1 lead
in the 32nd minute. Hedding
completed the hat trick early in
the second half with a goal off
of an assist from Bland in the
43' minute.
The Raiders pressured
Keystone's defense in the'final
20 minutes, scoring twice in
the final 14 minutes.
Frysinger finished the game
with 14 saves.
On Jan. 10, the Indians were
almost shut out by Newberry,
but a goal by Hedding in the
last minute made it a 3-1 loss
to the host Panthers.

Keystone played St. Francis
Wednesday, Jan. 14, and will
host three straight games to
close out the regular season.
The Indians play Providence
Friday, Jan. 16, P.K. Yonge
Tuesday, Jan. 20, and Bolles
Friday, Jan. 23. All games are
scheduled for 7 p.m.

5-yard line to end a West
scoring threat.
