More to celebrate

than ever before


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


The annual celebration of Martin
Luther King Jr.'s legacy always evokes.
the-spirit of triumph over adversity, but
never more so than this year on the eve
of Barack Obama's inauguration.
Many saw the celebration of King's
legacy on Monday immediately before
Obama's inauguration as the nation's
44" president on Tuesday-and its first
African-American president ever-as
.more than mere coincidence. For many,
regardless of race, Obama's rise to the
presidency was the literal fulfillment
of the dream King illuminated in that
famous 1.963 speech on the steps of the
Lincoln Memorial.
The near perfect recitation of that
speech by young Montrez Ellerson
was a reminder of the undying po0.er
of those words, but to hear themrn as a
nation that had finally raised a man of
color to serve its :highest political office,
a nation where character and not'color
decided the presidency, was indeed a
cause for true celebration. ;,
But the anticipation of the event that
would make history'on Tuesday did not
overshadow the history King and others
who stood forjustice and equality under
the law had already written. From the
opening chords of the Negro National
Anthem "Lift Every Voice and Sing" to
the words offered by the many program
participants, the legacy of those freedom
fighters was honored, foremost among
them Dr. King.
Toika Tyson said the qualities of
courage, compassion, humility and
service defined King's character and
empowered his leadership.


"On this holiday,
we commemorate
the, universal,
unconditional love,
forgiveness and .
nonviolence that .-
empowered his I
revolutionary spirit,"
Tyson said.
, King's example and
his voice have healed
national wounds, she
said. He went to jail
59 times and endured
harassment, beatings
and bombings in
his struggle for civil
rights, and when his Pictured at

"This, 'is not a called for ti
black holiday. It is
the people's holiday,"
Tyson said to a chorus
of "Amens."
In her reading, Juliette Long said
King had no fear, but love for people
regardless of creed or color. Cynthia
Ross talked about the examples King
found in the philosophies and lives of
Jesus Christ and Mohandas Gandhi.
Discussing the power of words, she
taught the crowd Gandhi's term for
nonviolence-satyagraha, or resistance
to tyranny through nonviolent civil
disobedience, a concept that has
inspired civil rights movements around
the world.

Family


loses


home


to fire

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The home of 'Curtis and Rhonda
Crawford off of Old Lawtey Road was
destroyed by a fire last week that kept
county firefighters busy for more than
four hours.
Brian Johns, Bradford County fire
coordinator, said the fire at the home
at 1792 N.E. 173,d St. escaped from
the family's fireplace through the flue
by the attic. Firefighters from Starke,
Theressa, Heilbronn Springs and
Lawtey were dispatched at 11:05 p.m.
Jan. 15. Johns said by the time they
arrived, flames were through the roof
and consuming the east end of the two-
story, wooden house.
"It burned probably half the house,"
Johns said, adding it is extremely hard
to stop a fire in a wooden house once
it has broken through the roof. "The
rest of the house had extensive smoke
damage and water damage."
Approximately 25 firefighters battled
the blaze before leaving the scene
after 3 a.m. The high winds of that
morning rekindled the fire, though, and
firefighters were again dispatched to the
scene at 5:52 a.m. Johns said the house,
however, was a total loss before the
rekindle.

New policy


meant to

curtail

bullying
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The school board has put in place an
anti-bullying policy to govern students
and employees as directed by the state.
The goal is to help create an
educational setting that is safe, secure
and free from harassment.
During a hearing Monday night,
Jason Jennings,- principal of the
Renaissance Center, said parents were
highly involved in the crafting of the
newv policy. Parents and employees were
invited from all schools to a meeting at
the district office where they reviewed
a model policy provided by the state
and tweaked to meet local needs and
concerns.
The policy is a guideline that works
with existing standards in board policy
and the student code of conduct to
address incidents, of bullying and
harassment.
There are a broad range of actions
that when combined with repetition,
constitute bullying.
Jennings said those actions could
include a level one offense per the code
of conduct up to a level two offense
worthy of expulsion. That means the
administration also has a range of
responses to the behavior. Jennings
said, since each situation is different.
"Bullying happens every day in the
schools," Jennings said. "We need to
become aware of it. We need to make
teachers aware of it. We need -to let
them know that this is important."
That means when a student complains
that they are being bullied, schools
need to investigate, which includes
interviewing all parties and gathering
evidence. The policy requires that
incidents of bullying be documented.
"We really need to take it seriously,"
Jennings ,said. "If you remember
Columbine, that really opened our
eyes."

Curious minds abound at middle school science fair


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The annual science fair at
Bradford Middle School exercises
the students' imaginations and
curiosity while teaching them
about the natural world and how
to explore it.
The science fair is organized
by John Tinsler, a sixth-grade
science teacher at the middle
school who was recognized as
Teacher of the Year last year.
'"It is open to everyone in the
school, and so we do highly
encourage it and we do make it a
part of their grade," Tinsler said.
Tables' were filled with
projects at the science fair last
Thursday morning, and many
of the projects were clearly the
result of time and effort outside
the classroom.
"You can talk about he
scientific method and problem
solving in class all day long. You
can read about it all day long,"
Tinsler said, but until child takes
a project from start to finish,
they really don't understand the
process. .
That process begins by asking
a question, then formulating
a hypothesis, or suggested
explanation. That hypothesis is
tested and a conclusion is drawn
based on the results of the tests
performed.
It. is this basic methodology
that scientists use to examine the
world.
"(The students) have to take a
problem from start to finish,'and
look back and realize what did
I do right, what did I do wrong,
and what did I actually 'learn
from the process. That's why we
have them go through it," said
Tinsler.
In addition to tackling a

and stretching

and investigative
muscles, -the
projects also help
build other skills,

Chrishe tested the effectiveness

There were around 170 project
boards on display in the Bradford
Middle School gymnasium. Each
student spoke to one judge about
their project. Tinsler said with so
many projects and judges, ahy
other scenario would have taken
all day.
Brett Weaver, a children's
minister from First Baptist
Church, was a first-time judge
at the science fair, and he said it
was clear how much thq students

they're still doing (the science
fair.) I think it shows them that
there's more to school than just

Derek Donley, middle school
pastor at. First Baptist and a
first-time science fair judge,
said he,~.vas surprised how well

.."I think it allows students to

said Donley, who remembered

not to forget where we've
come from lest we repeat the
past.
"We are the hope and the
answer to prayers of those who
lost hope. There were some
who said things would never
change, but they kept praying
and they kept hoping, and we
are actually that hope," Ramseur
said. "Things do change, people
change, times change."
T-shirts proclaimed, "I have a
dream ... A dream come true."
They also featured a photograph
of state trooper Alex Cummings
of Starke shaking hands
with then Sen. Obama on the
campaign trail. The photograph
of the meeting, a brush with the
president-to-be, has made him
something of a folk' hero. Not
only did he sit on the stage with
many of the program participants,
he was enthusiastically cheered
when introduced to the crowd.
The celebration was punctuated
by poignant moments. Maurice
White was presented flowers by
a young child in remembrance
of the passing of her sister,
May Francis Jenkins. Sidney
Williams, Beulah Lennon,
Elizabeth Walker were among
the others remembered. Jason
Jennings, principal of the
Renaissance Center was moved
to tears discussing the meaning of
King's martyrdom and Obama's
election.
Performances by the Bradford
Gospel Ensemble, MLK Mass
Choir and soloists Jessie Mae
Berry,Andrew Carter and George
Lott Jr., with the assistance
of Harold English, Melverine

moved many others to offer their
own voices in praise.
From the rousing invocation of
minister Emanuel Joe Kiser and
the offertory blessing of the Rev.
Everett Brown to the spirited
benediction of the Rev. Gary
Slaughter, the service was filled
also with prayer.


Dewayne McBride served as
master of ceremony, and others,
including School Board Member
Jesse Moore, D.A. Greenwood,
Michael Guyton and Lamar

service.
Valara Petteway served as
program director and recognized
the other members of the MLK
Committee, including Esther

Tyson.


Some, including Starke City
Commissioner Carolyn Spooner,
traveled to Washington D.C. for
the inauguration. Two million
Americans reportedly gathered
outside the Capitol for the main
event. Millions of others around

to mark the inaugural occasion.

BULLY
Continued from Page 1A

Eruptions of violence in
schools around the country have
led to increased awareness of
bullying and its consequences.
All school-related incidents are
addressed, whether they take
place on a school bus, during a
school-sponsored activity, or
using a school computer.
Assistant Superintendent Lisa
Previatt said students also need to
be educated about bullying.
"Sometimes children see what
they're doing as just normal
teasing, and so they don't realize
the impact they're having on
others," she said. "The difference
between a tease and bullying
or harassment is the continual
pattern."
The investigation required .of
the policy is meant to discover
such patterns of unacceptable
behavior.
All school employees are
required to report alleged
incidents of bullying or
harassment, and incidents of
bullying or harassment are to
be reported to the parents or
guardians of all students involved.
Incidents that could result
criminal charges being. pursued
against the perpetrator will result
in -local law enforcement being
contacted.
The policy defines bullying as
systematically and chronically
inflicting physical hurt or
psychological distress on
students or employees. It is
further- defined as unwanted
and repeated written, verbal
or physical behavior, including
any threatening, insulting or
dehumanizing gesture, by a
. student or adult, that is severe
or pervasive enough to create an
intimidating, hostile or offensive
educational environment; cause
discomfort or humiliation; or
unreasonably interfere with the
individual's school performance
or participation.
Forms ofbullyinglisted include
teasing, taunting, ridicule and
offensive comments; spreading
rumors; playing practical jokes;
intentionally leaving students out
of activities; writing nasty things;
sending offensive or threatening
messages through a computer
or cell phone; intimidating or
threatening others; taking or
damaging a person's possessions;
hitting, pushing, tripping,kicking
or pinching; sexual, religious or
racial/ethnic harassment; public
humiliation; and stalking.
According to the policy,
harassment means any
threatening, insulting or
dehumanizing gesture, use of
technology, or written verbal or
physical conduct directed against
a. student or school employee
that: places a student or school
employee in reasonable fear
of harm to his or her person or
damage to his or her property;
has the effect of substantially
interfering with a student's
educational performance,
opportunities or benefits; and/
or has the effect of substantially
disrupting the orderly operation
of a school.
Each school principal is
charged with developing an
annual process for discussing
the district's policy on bullying
and harassment such as a student
assembly.
The policy was approved by the
school board later that evening
but is not set in stone. Jennings
said the state might recommend
changes.

Renaissance.

center moved
Jennings offered thanks to
those who assisted with the move
of the Renaissance program from
the RJE Center on Pine Street
to the Bradford-Union Career
Technical Center, including
administrators and employees.
He also thanked parents for their
support.
"It takes a lot to move a school
in a short amount of time
The decision to move the
program was made by the school
board in December and was said


to be a cost-saving measure.
The move took place over
the Christmas holiday. Some
opposed moving the program'
mid-year and some others did
not want to abandon the historic
RJE site.
Career Center Director Randy
Starling said the move went
extremely well, in spite a few a
few problems. Superintendent
Beth Moore added her gratitude
as well.


All invited to town meeting on health care


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Are you concerned about
access to health care in the
area or other health issues? An
upcoming town hall meeting
will give you the opportunity to
have input in the development of
a State Rural Health Plan.
The meeting will take place
Wednesday, Feb. 4, from 11:30
a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Bradford
County Public Library at 456 W.
Pratt St. in Starke.
A light lunch will be served to
those in attendance.
This regional meeting is open
to residents of both Bradford and
Union counties.
The Florida Office of Rural
Health is in the process of revising
the State Rural Health Plan. Dr.
Gail Bellamy, a professor from
Florida State University, will
facilitate the meeting.
While the meeting is scheduled
for three hours, it is not necessary
to stay the entire time. It has also
been scheduled duringthe lunch
hour to help ensure the greatest
amount of participation possible.
"We are so excited that Starke


has been selected as one of. five
locations for town hall meetings
to get input from people in
rural areas about their health
concerns," said Winnie Holland,
administrator of the health
departments in Bradford and
Union. counties.
A limited number of providers,
transportation restrictions and
the lack of health care insurance
coverage are among the issues
typically experienced in rural
areas.
"Living in a rural area in
Florida provides many great
conditions when it comes to
having good relationships, but-
we are often challenged to
receive all the services within
our own community. We are very
fortunate to have a local hospital
and physicians that provide good
services.," Holland said.
The goals of the State Rural
Health Plan include improving
the health status of Florida's
rural citizens, increasing the
proportion of the population in
rural areas with financial, access
to health services and expanding
the availability of coordinated
systems of high quality health

TOWN MEETING


services to rural residents.
The state has reviewed health
assessments from 24 rural
counties and found that all
could be classified as medically
underserved. In most rural
counties, the overall mortality
rate is higher than it is for the
state as a whole. Those counties
also tend to have a higher-than-
expected number of deaths from
accidents, chronic liver disease
and diabetes, and a higher


number of perinatal deaths.
Some priorities for change
have been issued, including:
-Decrease teen pregnancy.
-Increase access to prenatal
care.
-Decrease incidence of HIV/
AIDS, TB and STDs.
-Decrease incidence of
diabetes, asthma, high. blood
pressure and heart disease.
-Decrease unintentional
injuries, including homicide.


-Increase prevention and health
education.
-Address substance abuse and
mental health issues.
-Provide assistance with
prescription drugs.

County emergency service billing contracted to third party


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The county has approved a
contract to allow a third party
to collect on bills for emergency
medical services.
EMS Director Allen Parrish
recommended the move. The
EMS service he supervises in
Union County that also contracts
with the same firm.
County Manager Brad Carter
agreed with the move and said it
should significantly increase the
collection rate. He was confident,
in fact, that the arrangement with
Diversified Ambulance Billing
of Tampa would more than pay
for itself.
Still, Carter cautiously
referred to the arrangement as
a trial. If the county does not
realize an increase in revenue,
there is sufficient protection for
the county to be able to exit the


agreement, he said.
Collecting on money owed
for services provided has been
an issue for EMS, as has the
separation of accounting duties,
which is noted annually in the
County's financial audit. Carter
said outsourcing collections will
take care of that accounting issue
as well.
Staff members who have been
responsible for billing will focus
on other areas of responsibilities.
There is one currently unfilled
position in the EMS office that
will not be filled as a result of the
new contract.
Public service should not
experiencean interruption,Carter
said. On the contrary, things
should run more efficiently, he
said. While the billing office
will be out of the area, the public
will still be able to get answers
local ly, he.said.
The company will earn 5.5


percent of whatever amount it
is able to collect for the county.
The county will be piggybacking
on the contract given to Clay
County to get that rate. The same
rate will be available to Union
County, resulting in a savings.
As for unpaid bills that the
contractor is unable to collect
on, those will be turned over to a
collection agency. The goal is to
reduce the number of write-offs
the county incurs every year.
The collection agency
would have to be selected after
advertising for bids, Parrish said.

EMS.
Parrish said the first would
be used to 'purchase several
hydraulic stretchers, needed to
help move larger patients.
"This is cfuickly becoming
standard in our industry, to
have these hydraulic ... power-
operated stretchers to. assist our
crews in lifting," Parrish said
There are probably 10-20
different lifting injuries in the
county annually, said Parrish.
"And then we've had several
delays in transporting patients,
waiting for someone to come
pick them up," he said.
The total grant would be for
round $50,000, and the county
would need to make a 25 percent
contribution, or match.
The second grant would fund
the purchase of a new ambulance
and require a 10 percent match
,from the-cotmnty:" 7-:--


Total purchase price for
the ambulance is estimated at
between $120,000-$125,000.
County Clerk Ray Norman
said if EMS revenue increases as
expected under the new contract
for billing services, there should
more than likely be enough
money available for the county
commission to contribute to
those purchases.
Parrish said if the money
doesn't go toward purchasing a
new ambulance it would likely
go toward repairing the unit in
need of replacement.

Local singer making a name for himself i


BY MELISSA PYLE
Telegraph Staff Writer


If you have not heard of local
talent, Daniel Crews, you should
make plans to "hear" him in
concert.
Crews grew up in Starke but
is now being invited to leave the
local venue and travel to other
parts of the country to perform.
Like many singers, Crews began
his singing career in church, as a
very small child.
"I was put in a chair so that
I could see over the. pulpit," he
said.
Crews, having a unique voice
that blends classical sound with
contemporary appeal, has plans
to go as far as the opportunities
will take him.
"I will continue to walk
through the doors God opens,"
said Crews. He's thankful for


Concert planned for Jan. 25


the invitations that have been
presented in just the last few
years.
Crews has been singing with
Christian group Calvary's Voice
but has more recently begun his
solo career.
Crews, a member of the First
Baptist Church of Starke, had
been asked to sing at a funeral
that Rodney Brooks, then choir
director' of First Baptist in
Jacksonville, was also attending.
Once Brooks heard Crews sing,
he immediately was interested
in having him sing at the First
Baptist Pastor's Conference.
The conference, attended
by thousands from around the
country, started a new interest in
Crews.


Crews' passion for music
and love for his community has
turned his heart toward teaching.
He currently teaches a choral
class at Bradford High School,
instructing 42 students. This
program had a huge impact on his
life, so when he was approached
with the need for a part-time
director to keep the program
alive, Crews took the challenge.
You can hear Crews sing at
his own church, when he is in
town,.hear him at local churches
in the surrounding areas or buy
one of his CDs. He currently
has his first CD, "Where Would
I Be," available on his Web site
www.danielcrews.com, but is
eager to debut his newest album,
"Timeless,",a hynins CD, at the


Madison Street Baptist Church
on Jan. 25.
Crews will be singing with the
Madison Street Baptist Church
Celebration Choir Sunday at
10:30 a.m. and performing a
concert at 6 p.m.
Crews is very thankful 'and
excited at the future prospects
and plans for. his music. He
already has many engagements
scheduled for this year, including
the Jacksonville Pastor's
Conference in February and the
Real Evangelism Conference at
First Baptist of Woodstock, Ga.
While all the new doors are
opening, Crews doesn't plan
to abandon his roots in Starke,
where he will continue teaching.
He is grateful to his wife,
Angelia, for all of her support
and scheduling of events.


Road paving will proceed at a lower price


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The county will proceed with
having chip seal applied to pave
three roads but will save an
additional $15,000.
The county had already
agreed to a contract with Florida
Highway Products to pave
Rising Road (NW 180th Street)
and Wiley Kelly Road (SW
161s" Street), and to finish up the
paving of an earlier.project, Mark
Lee Starling Road (NW 185th
Street). The chip seal process
was selected as a lower cost
alternative to traditional paving

said. Curtis Crawford got up
to investigate a4nd sa viiothidg-

light coming form the attic. A
Gainesville firefighter with more
than 20 years of experience,
Curtis knew the attic contained
a fire. He hurried to wake his
family, which also consists of
two daughters and a son.
"They were blessed they were
able to get everybody out of the
house:" Johns said.
Curtis Crawford said his
family has received tremendous
support since the fire from fellow
members of Kingsley Lake
Baptist Church, as well as from
other churches in the area.
"We love the community," he
said. "We thank them for all the
support."

To sugarcoat their previous

Providing more than just good food for 30 years


Customer service a
big key in Starke
Western Steer's
lon0 evity
BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
They ,say even the longest
journey starts with a single
step-and Harry Hatcher took
that step in 1977 when he
decided to partner with Buddy
and Sandra Norman to
purchase a Western Steer
franchise.
It took them almost two
years to complete that first


step; they didn't actually open
the doors until Jan. 16, 1979.
However, for Starke's Western
Steer and Hatcher, there are
now 30 years of steps to look
back on. This month the
restaurant .is celebrating its
birthday and a lot of local
people are looking back on its
history and its meaning to the
community.
Most of those people-'
Hatcher estimates the number
at 700-1000-owe their first
experience in the world of
work to Western Steer. Many
attribute their success in their
careers to things they learned'
there.
For example, Kevin Johns


was still in high school when
he started at "the steakhouse."
First a bus boy, then a kitchen
worker, Johns was one of the
first males to make it to the
"front line." In the '80s it was
generally female employees
who took orders, waited tables
and worked the cash register.
Johns worked his way up to
do most of that and even
became one of two primary
bakers who made the signature
yeast rolls for the restaurant.
Johns now owns and
operates Suburban Cleaners
and said the early lessons he
learned at Western Steer have
helped him in all his business
dealings. The emphasis on

Sharon Johnson helps herself from the popular hot bar at Western Steer. Thirty years
ago, there was no hot bar in the restaurant. It did have a salad bar when it opened,
but the hot bar did not evolve until much later.


good customer service at
Western Steer taught Johns
how to deal well with his own
customers.
At Western Steer, "service
was always the biggest thing,"
said Johns. "When I worked
the register I would ask people
as they left if everything wa'
all right. I would hear it on a
daily basis, they'd say, 'I never
had better service.' Service
was what really set Western
Steer apart. We had good food,
but the service really made the


difference."
Johns also said the highly
ethical behavior that was
exhibited by Hatcher and
expected of all the employees
really made an impression on
him. "We all knew there was a
high standard to live up ,to.
They expected ethical behavior
in your daily dealings with
-people," he said.
Johns said that high standard
of ethical behavior, taught first
by his family and then by
Western Steer, has carried over


into his own business.
He worked at Western Steer
for 17 years altogether. "I was
always proud to work there. It
was more like a family than
anything else, and there was
always this sense of pride the
employees felt-at least I did,"
he said.
Ken Weaver has worked at
Western Steer since 1997 and
is now Hatcher's second-in-
command. He is also Hatcher's
brother-in-law, but said that
even if he wasn't, he would
still admire Hatcher's methods
of doing business.

personal life.
"He's (Hatcher) taught me a
lot about people-both as
individuals and as employees
or customers. My experience
here has taught me how to deal
with people and how_not to
deal with people," said
Weaver.
He also said he values the
intense feeling of community


he experiences at Western
Steer. Not just through the
community service the
restaurant and its owner does,
but from its day-to-day
operations.
"It's really an in-road to the
community," he said. "You
met people from all over. You
meet them and get to know
them on a regular basis. I've
made a lot of friends through
the restaurant over the years,

that are formed among the
employees. We spend a lot of

atmosphere."
Weaver said that, as
important as the community is
to the restaurant, the restaurant
has also been important to the
community.
"I don't go anywhere where
I don't meet someone who has
worked here or who has a
family member who has
worked here," said Weaver.
"It's amazing the number of
people who have worked
here-and sometimes their
children and grandchildren."
A difficult
beginning...
In 1977 Hatcher, a former
coach and always a premier
sports, fan, visited the
Normans, who were heavily
into softball and often played
or coached with Hatcher.
The Normans wanted to
open a restaurant and offered
to go 50-50 on such a venture
with Hatcher. That was the
first time Hatcher ever thought
about entering the restaurant
business, he said.
Not long after that, the
subject came uip again when
Hatcher was at a softball
tournament talking with
Richard Howard. Howard told
Hatcher he was opening a
chain of steakhouses called
Western Steer. Hatcher was
interested.
"They actually wanted us to
open up in Gainesville ,or
Orange Park," Hatcher said.
"They didn't think Starke
could support a steakhouse."
There was only one table-
service restaurant in Starke at
that time-The Garden.
Hatcher and the Normans
looked at the heavily-travelled
U.S. 301 and realized there
were no table-service
restaurants on the major.
roadway from near Georgia all
the way to Ocala.
"There wasn't a major
restaurant for quite some
distance, ,so we decided for
sure that Starke was our
location, our home," said
Hatcher. That was December
of 1977.
Construction on the
steakhouse at its present
location began in early 1978,
but nothing worthwhile ever
comes easy and this was no
exception.
There were delays in
construction caused by the late
arrival of the giant roof beam
and by the Department of

Transportation requiring
different paving specifications
than those planned.
"It was just a real'
nightmare," said Hatcher in an
interview in 1999, on the 20th
anniversary of the restaurant.
But Jan. 16, 1979, finally
arrived) the day the doors
opened to customers for the
first time.
"Oh what a day," said
Hatcher, "a day words can't
express. A big restaurant, a lot
of employees.., but how many
customers would come and
how would we perform?"
That question was soon
answered, and the modest
Hatcher said, "Thirty years

is a tough business, but a
restaurant with a great steak,
great prices and poor service
would not have been in
business for 30 years, he said.
His employees are definitely
the secret to his success. "They
are dedicated employees
working to provide quality
food and excellent service,"
said Hatcher. "As I've said
before, some of the greatest
workers in the world are
employed here."

Changes along
the way...

The salad bar had 40-50 items
and only included chilled
offerings. As other restaurants
began serving an expanded
variety that included hot items,


.-'Hatcher said he, was resistant
to the idea.
People began asking about
hot bar items, however, and
Hatcher decided he had to give
his customers what they


'wanted, '
Now the restaurant has a full
salad bar, full' hot bar and a
bakery-ice cream station for
dessert.
"The buffet became very
trendy and still remains
popular today," said Hatcher.
In a previous' interview,
Hatcher said the hot bar is
difficult in that it requires them


to operate almost like two'
restaurants. Employees have to
be very attentive to the hot bar,
*but they also have to be very
attentive to the kitchen and
prepared-to-order items.
When the restaurant opened,
there were some 300 Western
Steers in the country. Today
there is only one. Many of the
others were converted to other


restaurants.

Pleasing the customer is
important. "I just consciously
try to see things from a
customer's perspective," said
Hatcher in 1999. He said he
still teaches his staff to try to
anticipate a customer's needs.
If the coffee cup is half empty,
go ahead and fill it up, don't
waitto be asked, he tells them.
Hatcher said he is Very
aware that the support of the
community is vital to his
success. "There are so many
people to thank, so many lives
involved... How can we say
thanks?" he asked.
Hatcher has always returned
support to the community in as
many ways as possible. The
restaurant supports a number
of youth sports teams and
Hatcher assists with a wide
variety of fundraisers that
benefit any number of civic
service organizations. He also
donates his time to serve on
boards that try to improve the
community in various ways.


Sherry Crum makes sure the salad bar has plenty of fresh, delicious items to tempt
anyone's taste.

Editorial/Opinion

Thursday, January 22, 2009 Page 4B


Officers need
to be more
considerate
Dear Editor:
I am writing to tell you of an
incident that happened Sunday
night (Jan. 18) involving my
21-year-old, newly pregnant
daughter and two Bradford
County police officers.
We live in Pente Vedra
Beach. My daughter, a student
at UNF, was driving to her
father's home in Gainesville to
spend the MLK holiday with
him and his family. At
approximately 9 p.m., she was
pulled over oh 301 in Starke
by two; 'focal police officers,
made to get out of her car and
stand in the cold while they
verbally berated her about one
of her headlights being broken.
They then proceeded to take
her license, her registration
and the tag off of her car. They
told her she was not permitted
to drive. again until her light
got repaired, and that she
would have to go to a local
Bradford County tag agency
with proof that the repair had
been made to get another tag
issued, at which time
supposedly her license and
registration would be returned
to her.
They then told her she must
arrange to have the car towed
back to Jacksonville as soon as
-possible (again, this is 9 at
night on a Sunday), and for
good, measure, they gave her a
141 ticket that carried with it
three points.
They then left her on the
side of the road, alone, at
night, in a strange :area. She
had no money with her but
luckily did have her cell phone
and was able to call her father
to come get her, and'to call me
to 'arrange for: her car to be
towed back to Jacksonville.
What if she. hadn't had the
cell? MIN daughter is a "little"
girl, 5'4". and very shy. She
was truly terrified when she
called me so. I stayed on the
phone w ilh her until her father
got there almost an hour later.
This -could have been a
tragedyjgd ,fgy o .?whtQe
broken headlight? Something
for which most people would
have simply gotten a warning
ticket?
Your police force is
notorious for incidents like
this. Let us all thank God that
nothing happened to my
daughter but it was taking a
very risky chance with a
young, pregnant, frightened
girl who was alone, don't you
agree?
Peggi Lobato


Help is there if
you look for it
Dear Editor:
We are into what may prove
to be a long period of not
enough work or pay for a lot of
folks in Bradford County.
Even so, there are people in
this area who may be business
owners or small farmers,
homeowners, or just somebody
who needs to get someone to
help. them out once in awhile.


Many of us can just ask a
friend, "Who do you know that
can help me do this?" Just as
many cannot.
At the same time, there are
folks out there who want to
work, and haven't found a job
yet. They may not be able to
work a regular job for any
number of good reasons, but
have abilities and want or need
to do something.
There is a way for both sides
to find each other.
FloridaWorks and the One
Stop Job Center on U.S. 301
South (Bradford Square) can
put potential workers and
employers together.
Need someone for just a
day? Just a job? To fill in for
someone? Go to the
FloridaWorks office and ask
for their list of possible
persons to fill your bill. Need a
job? Need to work or want to
work but can't work full time?
Just need something to tide
you over? Looking for a little
extra? Go to the FloridaWorks
office and sign up.
There is no charge to anyoneO
for this service. There is no


same sex. The children will
know that something is wrong
with this kind of living. When
their friends go to school
,festivities,, such as sports and
other school gatherings with a
male and female daddy and
mama, their friends will have
two daddy's and two mama's.
How can these children have
complete lives in this kind of
environment?
As I said in the beginning,
the children will be the 'ones
who pay and be hurt in the
end. All this is caused by
selfish people who want their
way no matter who it hurts,
disregard God's teachings and
do things they want to do. God
did not create these people to'
live this kind of life. God
doesn't make mistakes, and
this would be one. Jesus 'died
for them too and. loves them
,but not their lifestyles.
Let's pray these people will
change. Pray for our leaders to
put God first in their decisions
and first in their lives. God
bless America.

Cooneys share world trip experiences with Kiwanis Club


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
"Everything works out."
It is Catrell Cooney's
mantra, and as her family
found out during the course of
approximately four months, it
is indeed true. Despite some
trying times and the fact they
don't own much but the
clothes on their backs, the
family has treasured the
experiences of traveling
abroad, soaking in other
cultures and learning what's
really important in life.
Catrell, her husband, Mike,
and sons Morgan, Zach and
Harrison, presented a program
at the Jan. 6 meeting of the
Kiwanis Club of Starke. Mike,
accompanied by a slide show,
discussed his family's
experience of selling most of
their material possessions and
striking out on a trip around
the world. The family left the
U.S. in late August 2008 for
Mexico and visited Gautemala,
Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Peru,
Chile, Argentina, Uraguay and
Brazil. After a short time back
here in the U.S., the family
will set out for, as Mike put it,
"southern Africa, Australia and
as many points in between."
Mike, who has traveled


extensively due to a stint in the
Merchant Marines and because
of business requirements, said
he and Catrell wanted their
sons to experience what life
was like outside of the U.S.
"We really did it for our
three sons," Mike said. "We
wanted them to be able to see
the world before they. started
the university."
Has it been easy? No. The
family has encountered
problems as you might expect
from not being- familiar with
customs of other countries.
Plus, the family tried to adhere
to a daily budget, which is not
the easiest thing to do when
you're converting from one
currency to another.
"That is probably one of the
greater challenges we had as
each country we went to,
obviously, had a different
currency and a different
exchange rate," Mike said.
There were definitely times
where the family questioned
what they were doing, Mike
said. However, it always
seemed those were the times
where the family would
receive inspiration from some
source.
Oftentimes, that came in the
form of e-mails. Mike said the


:.. -. "*"^-*. fl

outdoors in Los Angeles, Chil.


family received one e-mail
from an Orlando woman who
is a quadroplegic. The woman,
who has lived with cerebral
palsy since birth, has been
following the family's travels
on the Web site
www.cooneyworldadventure.
com.
"This was something she
was looking forward to, to
actually travel vicariously, as
she put it, through us," Mike
said.
To prepare for this world
trip, the Cooney family held
eight yard sales in an attempt
to sell everything they owned.
Mike had to chuckle after he
told the Kiwanis members that
because Catrell's father, Grady
Overstreet, who is a Kiwanis
member, was in attendance.
"We sold practically
everything we owned," Mike
said. "I'm sure Grady would
beg to differ with that since
he's got two bedrooms full of
(our) stuff."
Catrell and her sons rolled
$500 worth of coins in
preparation for the trip, while
Mike cashed in his retirement.
That was a scary prospect, he
said, but he added it wasn't
gaining any value, so why not?
The family returned home in
December to a practically
empty house-a house the
family has unsuccessfully bden
trying to sell. Yet in a blog
posted on the I'aili's Web
site a \week after their return to
the U.S.. Mike rl e that there
%"as no rush to resume the
lifesitle the family enjoyed
prior to the Irip


slop."
Mike said that once you
make sure your bus has a
bathroom, make sure not sit
next to it. That was a lesson he
and Catrell learned on a nine-
hour ride from Nicaragua to
San Jose, Costa Rica.
"I can assure you it becomes
quite ripe," he said.
Mike also talked about
"chicken buses'" transport


"For example.'" Mike wrote vans that may. have you sitting
in his blog, "'e haie yet to with a chicken in your lap and
lurn on the dishwasher, and most definitely have you

The return home capped a Mike, Cairell and the boys

including more than 4,000 which was designed to carry

had, what inoculations babies

Mike said it was impressive
to see, though such a system in
this country would violate all
kinds of privacy laws.
"Even though it wasn't our
kind of health care, it was
health care that certainly
worked for them," Mike said.


Another thing Mike shared
with the Kiwanis Club was the
fact his family learned the
truth. He specifically spoke of'
IU.S. involvement in
Guatemala, backing a 1954-60
coup under th. gtuise of
stopping the threat of,
Communism-another reason
given for U.S. involvement in
the 1980s.
Mike said what he and his
family learned was that 'there

FAIR
Continued from page 5B

Office Deputy Sherri Mann
was on hand to assist with
issuing bicycle helmets, which
were properly fitted on
recipients. Approximately 115
helmets were issued.
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office Deputy George Konkel
was present with the sheriff's
office's red Dodge Charger, an
unmarked traffic-enforcement
vehicle. The car, with all its
lights, proved to be a hit as
children-and even Ronald
McDonald--enjoyed climbing


inside.
The Charger isn't the only
good-looking, red vehicle in
the county. The Starke Fire
Department's Engine One was
a big attraction for kids, as
well, who enjoyed climbing on
board.
Safe Kids set up a child
safety seat inspection area.
Free installments were
provided. The program not
.only properly installs seats
already in vehicles, but
inspects them for wear, age,
proper size and harnessing. If
the seat is considered unsafe,
Safe Kids provides a new,
properly sized and installed
Seat for $20. Debora- Regan


and Dr. Morya Willis of Safe
Kids North Central Florida
were extremely excited about
the volume of vehicles and
inspections, stating the event
was the best child safety seat
inspection in Starke in the
years the organization has
partnered with the police
department.
The fair was brought to a
close with ,a K-9
demonstration. Starke' Police
Department Sgt. Richard
Crews and his partner, Ori,
showed McDonald's owner
Mike Potapow how much they
appreciated his support." by
letting Potapow don a bite suit.
Potapow quickly learned hlt to


mess with Creows ..because Ori
has a mean hite. Potapow
donated $5.000 toward the
purchase of Ori, and he finally
found out his investment was
worth it.
Starke Police (hief Jeff
Johnson, who was oni hand,
said, "I cofildn't be prouder of

Local players

impact

another all-

star game

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
If a player from Bradford
High School or Union County
High School is a member of an
all-star football team, chances
are he will make a play that
influences the outcome of the
game. Past history has proven
that to be true and this year's
Baker Sports/FYCA East-West
All-Star game was no
exception as Bradford's John
Tyson forced a game-turning
turnover and Union County's
Deven Perry was named his
team's offensive MVP.
Perry and Tyson played for
the East team, which won 14-
13" on a 12-yard touchdown
run by Fort White's Xavier
Bliake with 22 seconds
remaining. The touchdown
was set up by Tyson's forced
fumble, which was recovered
by Paul Hope of Newberry.
It was Perry who put his
team on the board first with a
1-yard touchdown run at the
3:50 mark of the fourth
quarter, making it a 13-7 game
with the PAT by Columbia's
John Robinson.
Prior to that drive, the East
team-had managed less than 50
yards of offense. However,
after an interception by East
defender Detavious Ross, who
attends Newberry High


Bradford's Chuckie Covington
was his team's offensive MVP
last year.
It continued a trend of local
players shining when they get
opportunities in all-star games.
For example, former Bradford
running backs DeWhitt
Betterson, Demetrice
Hankerson and Milton
Sumpter earned MVP awards
in the Shrine Bowl, while
former Union Couinty
quarterback A'usten Roberts
completed a long pass in at
Shrine Bowl game to set his
team up for a game-winning
field goal.

able-to go outdoors and do any
kind of training.
"Where I'm from over by
Lake Michigan, it was
negative-42 degrees," Montry
said. "We were shutting down
the schools and everything. It's
cold up there."
Linke said the temperature
was minus-10 degrees in his
hometown, while Spc. Evan
Napper said it was 0 degrees
with a wind chill of rtinus-20
degrees where he's from.
All things considered, the
weather here is not so bad.
"Actually, this is perfect, to
be honest with you," Spc. Joe
Kindred said. "It might be cold
for you, but this is beautiful
right now."
The 32"d Infantry Brigade
Combat Team will train three
weeks at Blanding before
going to its mobilization
station in Texas. The
deployment of the 32"d marks
the largest operational
deployment of Wisconsin
National Guard forces. since
World War II. According to a
Dec. 3, 2007, Defense
Department news release, the
brigade "will have a security
force mission and be assigned
tasks which will assure
freedom of movement and
continuity of operations" in
Iraq.
Severson has been in the
Guard for five years come
March 31. This will be his first
deployment, yet he admitted
he hadn't given it much
thought. J, ii -, .
"I guess it really hasn't sunk
in yet," he said.
A lot of time can be spent
thinking about what could
possibly happen over there,
Severson said. As he put it,
"the unknowns are kind of
what get to you." However, he
also added, "I know when I.
signed up exactly what I was
getting into, so I guess I know
what to expect."
Like Severson, Kindred and
Montry are preparing for their
first deployment. Kindred said
he is very excited.
"I'm sure when it gets closer
I'll be a little bit more
worried," Kindred said, "but
I'm excited."
Montry said he is eager to go
overseas and witness .the scene
firsthand, though he, like
many, will be leaving someone
special behind here in the U.S.
"I have a fiance back home,"
Montry said. "Obviously, she's
not too thrilled about this
deployment, but you've got to
make sacrifices and drive on."
Napper nas deployed before,
but the difference this time-as
compared to 2004-05 when he
first deployed is that he now
has a 2-year-old daughter.
Obviously, Napper will give
some thought to his daughter
and how things are going back
home, but he said that won't
distract him from the tak .at
hand.
"It's nothing but a mind set,"
Napper said. "You have a job

to do just like you have a job
to do here (in the U.S.). You
Shave to get your job done, and
then you go home, except ours
doesn't involve coming back
home every night. It's a year
until you come back to the
ones you love."
Napper said it was quite a
shock the first time he
deployed because of the
weather. He was in Kentucky
at the time, leaving a humid
climate of 90 degrees during
the day to go to one that
climbed to 125 degrees. At
night, the temperature dropped
to 60.
Linke, who has deployed
before, said the shocking thing
to him was watching the land
change during the course of a
15-hour flight.
"You can watch the green,
green hills of home soon fade
into the desert sand," he said.
Most of' the 32nd Infantry
Bridage Combat Team's
subordinate units nave
deployed before, so their is
plenty of experience for fkst-
timers to rely upon.
"We are blessed to have the
group we have because about
half of them overall have been
at least once or twice already,"
Napper said. "They have the
experience. We're basically
learning off of their
experience."
While at Blanding, members
of the 32"n will participate in
Exportable Combat Training
Capability exercises that create
real-world experiences along
with Global Positioning
System technology that allows
Guard members' movements
and actions to be tracked and
recorded by; prnfi_.at lyhat
are called tactical analysis
facilities. At the end of every
day, observer-controller
trainers use that data to assess
the Guard members'
proficiency.

Keith Taylor, XCTC deputy
executive director, said that's
what Army training is all
about. Soldiers react to a set of
conditions, review how well
they reacted to those
conditions and then learn from
those reactions. Soldiers then

go back out into the field and
do it again and again until they
and their leaders are confident.
that given those same
circumstances, whether they be
in theaters of operation or
during another training
exercise, the resulting actions
will lead to lives saved.
"Usually, the training is
where I make my mistakes,"
Severson said. "It's a good
place to make them."
Taylor said, "The better wve
train here, the better the
soldiers can execute their,
mission."
Observer-controller trainers
take the data collected and
assess the soldiers' proficiency
at the end of each day.
"They'll get the most
detailed, visualized after-
action report, or review, of all
the actions they did in real
time so they can learn from
those," Taylor said.
The XCTC exercises are
composed of four different
scenarios: entering and
clearing a building, convoy
operations, reconnaissance and
traffic-control points.
Contractors play an
important part in such training.
SRI International, for example,
is responsible for meeting the
communications needs, while
Allied Container System
brings in role players who, in
this case, portray Iraqis.
"Then we hire about 130 to
150 locals to play civilians on
the battlefield," Taylor said.
"We treat it like a real-world
situation," Severson said. "I
really enjoyed (the training)."
That's not all Severson and
his fellow Guardsmen have
enjoyed. Kindre,jqpqJ, example,
is enjoying new sights.
"I saw a palm tree for -the
first time, which was just
awesome," he said. "I've never
seen the ocean, but I'm
looking forward to that when
I'm flying over, heading to
Texas."
Napper, as of Jan. 16, was
still waiting to see one sight in
particular.
"I'm still trying to see an
alligator," he said. "I want to
see at least one alligator before
I go home."

TRIP
Continued from page 7B

was no Communism. What it
all boiled down to was politics
and money. The U.S.-backed
coup that began in 1954, for
example, apparently had to do
with the United Fruit Company
that owned huge amounts of
land in Guatemala (several
members of President
Eisenhower's cabinet served
on the company's board of
directors). The end result of
the coup was that 66 percent'of
the country's land was owned
by 2 percent of the population.
The Cooney family had the
opportunity to talk to a
woman-named Tomasa-
who experienced firsthand a
massacre in the village of
Santa Maria Tzeja. The
massacre arose from the
government's attempt to
suppress those who rebelled
against Guatemala's
exploitation by large
landowners and foreign
governments.
Tomasa and her husband
were separated for 12 years as


a result. For five of those
years, they didn't even know if
the other was still alive.
"It was important for the
boys to hear that these kinds of
things do go on, but that it's
different from .what we're
actually taught," Mike said.
The stories, the
experiences- they are
fulfilling the dream Mike and
Catrell had for their sons.
Despite having to keep up with
currency exchange rates and
traveling on overcrowded
buses, the family has found
that everything, indeed, does
work out.
What the family has also
discovered is that all the
conveniences and gadgets of
modern life here in the U.S.
are not necessary. Mike said
that's what has been the best
part of the trip-the family
members have learned what
they can live without.
"Frankly, it's a huge burden
that's been lifted," Mike said.
