Starke commissioners are refusing to
eet with their firefighters to discuss
lary and other concerns.
Union representatives from
professional Firefighters of Starke Local
120 approached the commission Jan.
0 only to be rebuffed. Told they could
)t meet privately with the commission
originally requested to discuss
)ntract negotiations, the firefighters
aid they were more than willing to


meet publicly during a regular meeting
or in a specially called workshop.
They were still denied.
Even after the city attorney, Terry
Brown, cleared up confusion over
the legality of meeting with union
representatives and the proper venue for
that to take place, commissioners still
refused, although most had said prior to
Brown's arrival that they personally did
not have a problem with a sit-down.
While Brown correctly informed
commissioners they were allowed to
meet with the firefighters union in


public, he advised against it, warning
that public negotiations would
deteriorate and be unproductive.
For their part, the firefighters said
they have no interest in arguing with
the commissioners or embarrassing
them. They simply want to make their
case.
That doesn't mean the group isn't
irritated. Aside from repeated refusals
to sit down with them, firefighters have
learned that the city hasn't always been
honest.


Starke Commissioner Carolyn Spooner and her daughter, Kishanna, were among the reported 2 million
Americans who gathered at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 20 for the swearing in of President Barack Obama.
Words cannot describe the experience, she said. Presented with the tickets by Congressman Cliff
Stearns, Spooner also took the opportunity to meet with him and discuss issues of importance to the
city.

Gov. vetoes some budget cuts


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

On Tuesday, Gov. Charlie Crist
approved a new budget passed by
legislators meeting in special
session earlier this month,
although he vetoed some of the
planned cuts.
That came as welcome news
to The Arc of Bradford County's
director, Sherry Ruszkowski,
and others like her around the
state since money was saved for
the state Agency for Persons
with Disabilities. The additional
proposed cut represented another
5 percent on top of the 7 percent
cut already experienced.
Service providers like The Arc
of Florida opposed additional
cuts because of the danger of
people with disabilities losing the
residential group homes they live
in or the family assistance that
allows these individuals to live at
home, in addition to services that
provide support and instruction
in acquiring life and job skills.
Ruszkowski said she thinks
the governor deserves a round
of applause for sparing the
state's disabled. More than $13.5
million will remain in the budget
to provide these services.
In all, almost $365 million,
including $91 million is general


revenue funding and $273.6
million in trust fund money,
was restored to the budget,
preserving funding for public
safety, education and teachers,
children and elder programs,
tourism promotion, and the
Florida Forever land conservation
program.
"I appreciate the difficult work
of the Legislature to reduce the
current year's budget during
these, historically challenging
economic times," Crist said.
"However,1 believe we can tighten
our belts while still maintaining
our investment in priority areas.
In this way, we can ensure the
safety and security of our people
and visitors to our state."
Bradford school officials
weren't available to discuss what
the governor's vetoes would
mean for the school district. A
press release from the governor's
office did spell out that Bradford
will hold on to more than $37,000
in workforce education dollars
(around $38,500 in Clay and
$6,500 in Union). Other areas,
such as preserved funding for
teacher merit raises and was not
broken down by district.
Money was also saved for
teachers who pursue national
certification, and almost $6
million statewide was maintained


for school readiness services for
children of working parents.
More than $3 million in
cuts for correctional probation
officers \vas also saved, as was
more than $5 million for drug
abuse treatment and educational
programs in state corrections
facilities. More than $1.3 million
was saved for the Guardian ad
Litem program, which provides
advocates for children caught
up in the legal system. Funding
preserved for adult and children's
mental health and substance
abuse services totaled almost $10
million.
Additional money for the
Florida National Guard,
Department of Children Families,
Department of Elder Affairs and
Department of Health was spared
as well.
The governor's vetoes restored
almost $365 million of the $1.2 -
billion in cuts approved by the
Legislature. The cuts were in
response to a $2.3 billion revenue
shortfall.
More .good news may be
coming this week as Washington
legislators are expected to begin
voting on the president's $825
billion stimulus package as early
as Wednesday.

UC-BC schools



face more cuts


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
7ines Staff Writer
As the result of- the Special
legislative Session that'
concluded on ,Jan. 16, the
Union County School District
saw a loss of $311,245 in
state funding and the cut to
the Bradford County School
District amounted to a $476,000
loss.
According to the finance
directors in for both districts,
they were aware this was
coming and did their best to ,
make preparations for it in
advance.
Union Finance Director
Mike Shockley said, "We knew
it was coming we just didn't
know how bad the cuts would
be."
It seems that for the last
seven or eight quarters, the
state's Revenue Estimating
Committee cannot even come
close to projecting accurate
income results. Shockley
feels that it is a difficult task,
considering all the economic
factors that come into play.
Bradford Finance Director
Julee Tinsler said that she feels
certain the Bradford district can
pull it together and make it
with the nearly $500,000 now
cut from the budget.
"We already cut back in areas
such as our subs (substitute
teachers) and we've been
closely watching the utilities.
We received a Schools in Need
of Improvement grant giving
as the ability to move some
people around and all of that
funding has not been claimed
yet, giving us a little headway,"
Tinsler said.
Tinsler believes the Bradford
district can pull from various
places within the district's
budget without needing to take

away any programs, offered
at the schools. "I feel fairly
confident we can make it
happen," she said.
Shockley also anticipates
no programs being cut in
Union County and stated that
all dollars earmarked for the
classroom will still go there.
Shockley added that Union is
in better shape than some other
districts as a result of a build
up of the district's carryover
balance through the last several
years.
"We will have to adjust our
budget to tweak our funding,
but we do not anticipate any
program cuts," he said.
State agencies were hit even
harder, having to reduce their
budgets by another 6.2 percent.
This latest round of cuts puts
school district funding at the
same level as fiscal year 2006.
All economic indicators are
that next fiscal year will be
even worse.
Tinsler is taking the extra
step of conducting slide show
presentations to service groups
and schools in the Bradford
community in effort to plant the
seeds to prepare everyone that
things are going to get worse
before they get any better.-
Bradford School
Superintendent Beth Moore
said she is very concerned with
the hits the district has taken
and keeps quality education
a top priority for Bradford
students.
As for Union. County,
Shockley stated that the district
is very fortunate to have a
superintendent as concerned
as Carlton Faulk along with
a school board who will do
whatever is necessary to make
sure they have a balanced
budget and still manage to give
students everything they need
to learn.

study of

Florida

history
BY COLAN COODY
UC 4-H Assistant
Beginning in October of last
year, Kim Shaw's seventh and
eighth grade language arts class
at Lake Butler Middle School
has been participating in an
exciting program in cooperation
with the Union County 4-H
School Enrichment Program.
The class has been reading the
book, "Solomon," by Marilyn
Bishop Shaw. "Solomon"
reflects a period of Florida's
history 'that most people
aren't aware of, but need to
understand.
It is the story of an I1-year-
old black child and his newly
freed slave parents as they build
a homestead in north Florida's
wilderness, living their dream
of independence. Their battle
to survive is filled with harsh
difficulties in the wild and
working long, hard, days.
Already struggling with
the realization that his son
his growing up, Moses is
further distanced 'from his
,son, Solomon, by the arrival
of a captivating white man
and his whip, whom Moses
initially despises because of his
memories of slavery.
Solomon's mother, Lela,'
struggles to make a home
and keep peace between her
husband and son. Solomon
is confronted with the new
world as he rides 'a Florida
Marshtackie horse, wields his
whip (thtereb% becr ming' a
Florida cracker) and rounds up
cattle to go to the market.
All the lessons taught to
Shaw's students at LBMS
encompass a broad range of
cross-curriculum activities and
cover an enormous amount
of Sunshine State Standards.
For example, the students
have made salt from salt water
(science), made butter (learning
the scientific word "collide"),
made beef jerky (science, math
and life skills). FCAT-related

took place.

questions, map reading (social
studies/math). and whip-
making as demonstrated by
Wayne Roberts.
The students have learned
many different skills during this
unit, as well as being immersed
in their own historical culture,
as the setting for "Solomon"
is right here in our area. This
story is rich in Florida's history,
geography, and surroundings; it
is a story that is fascinating and
waiting to be told.

Author visits as
part of 4-H in the
Classroom
BY MOLLY ZAPP
LBES Fourth Grader
On Dec. 17, I met a lady
named Marilyn Bishop Shaw
who wrote a book named
"Solomon." Mrs. Shaw is
sister-in-law to my principal,
Mrs. Lynn Bishop.
This book is about the early
days of Florida history in the
1860s. "Solomon" has an
Accelerated Reader quiz that
is worth 10 points. I think
that's pretty cool. It took Mrs.
Shaw five years to get her book
published. It took three years
to write and another two years
to finally have a copy in her
hand.
What Mrs. Shaw learned
about the writing experience is
that you have to be patient and
you can't call the publisher to
see if the book is ready.
The book's main character
is Solomon, an I 1-year-old
newly freed slave. He and his
family moved from Gcor)'ia to


north Florida around Lafayette
County in 1863 to build a farm,
and have a garden for crops.
One of the parts Mrs. Shaw
read from her book tells how
Solomon was having trouble
getting untangled from a thorn
bush. Solomon heard a snort.
When he looked up, he saw a
bull. Solomon was learning
how to use a bullwhip, but
wasn't very good with it. He
got his whip untangled, put his


hand on the whip and waited.
Someone yelled, "Crack the
whip!" That's just what he
did. Soloinon heard it crack
and knew that the bull would
always have a scar in the middle
of his forehead between his two
uneven horns.
Mrs. Shaw said she is work ng
on a sequel to Solomon. I think
that you and I should get the
book and read it. I think it will
be great!

Man pleads to murder


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Toby Lee Lowry, 23, has pled
guilty to the murder of Melrose
resident James Stewart.
Lowry and 14-year-old
Amanda Leppart were accused
of murdering Melrose resident
James Stewart last May. They
were later apprehended in Texas
and returned for trial. Leppart
is,being tried as an adult.
A state district attorney
originally sought the death
penalty for the older of the two.
As a juvenile, Leppart cannot
receive the death penalty.
However, Lowry's attorney
asked for a life sentence in
return for a guilty plea,
according to media reports
based on statements made


by State Attorney Chris
France. According to the
state prosecutor, the victim's
family also approved the plea
bargain.
Lowry is scheduled for
sentencing next Friday.
Since pleading guilty to the
charges, he can now testify
against Leppart, who by this
point is 16 years of age.
The two staked out
Stewart's Melrose home and
convinced him to let Leppart
into his home. The pair then
beat, stabbed and suffocated
the 66-year-old man, who
was mildly disabled and hard
of hearing.
The two were later
apprehended in Texas.
Shortly after going to jail,
Lowry attempted suicide.

Grandin men's group


builds for neighbors


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
The Men's Fellowship
Organization in Grandin is a
Christian men's group from a
-number of churches in Putnam
and Clay counties.
In- January, about a dozen
members of the organization
constructed their 49th ramp at
the home of John and Diana
Huffman in Interlachen. The
group's secretary and treasurer,
Sim Suter, said the men have
built ramps for handicapped
and disabled residents living
in houses or in mobile homes.
They have also built ramps for


churches.
"We get together to help the
community, to have fun and to
serve the Lord," Suter added.
The men shown above are
members who worked on the
Huffman project- Huffman
himself has since joined the
group, too-but other members
include Josh Dill, Nick
Straniero, Tom Russel, Bill
Tritt, Dan Kramer, the Rev.
John Miles, Larry Harris, Brian
Bott and Ralph Lambert. Most
of the organization's members
are retired, Suter said.
On Saturday, Feb. 7, the
group will reach a milestone


with its 50th ramp, to be built at
the Jackie and Ralph McDolald
home on Beloit Avenue in High
Ridge Estates.
Usually, the group provides
the labor but the home owner
buys the building materials,
which can run between $180 to
more than $500, Suter said.
To celebrate their milestone,
the group will also supply
the building materials at the
McDolald home.
To request a ramp, contribute
to the effort or to learn more

Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles .H.
Bronson has advised residents
that below average rainfall for
the last four to five months
has significantly increased the
state's wildfire risk.
The torrential rain associated
with Tropical Storm Fay last
summer has been all but offset
by the recent drought. The
Keetch-Byram Drought Index,
which measures available,
soil moisture and runs from 0
(saturated) to 800 (desert-like),
currently stands at 511 -more
than double the normal drought
index this time of year.
"We are asking both residents
and visitors alike to be careful
with any outdoor burning and to
check with their local officials
to determine if there is a burn
ban in effect in their area,"
Bronson said.
During the past year, 2,894
wildfires have burned nearly
106,000 acres in Florida.
To minimize the wildfire
risk, Bronson is asking residents
and visitors to do their part,
including:
,s. Never leave any fire
unattended.
u Clear an area to bare soil
for campfires, and be sure they


are put out before you leave.
Report any suspicious fire
by calling 9.t1.

The guest book was signed
in silver and a memento was


given to all, including a silver

city. They have even expressed
an interest in joining the state's
less expensive retirement system,
an idea that, although often
raised by some commissioners,'
never results in any action-even
though the amount the current
pension systems are costing the
city continues to climb.
Firefighters would also like
to see their pay doubled when
responding during a declared
emergency like hurricanes or
wild fires: They point out that
this would cost the city nothing
as its emergency response costs
are reimbursed by the federal
government.
Subsequent years add requests
such as out-of-class pay when
working shifts with a higher
level of responsibility; incentive
and HAZMAT pay for. training
activities; and an additional year
of vacation for veteran firefighters
with 20 or more years of service.
Union officer Greg Starling
believes all of -this could be
implemented .' for less than
$100,000 annually.
The union sent several years'
worth of the city's financial
information to an outside auditor,
who concluded that with healthy
and increasing fund balances,
there was no need for cutbacks
or salary freezes. The city's own
auditor noted that the outside
analysis concluded at the end
of the 2007 fiscal year and
the current "bleak economic
outlook" requires caution when
considering spending increases.
The city's auditor also pointed
out that while firefighters are
hired at $8 an hour, the actual
cost is almost $15 an hour when
benefits are added.
The firefighters say those
benefits and the fire station
that they are repeatedly told
was converted for their benefit
(actually it was to keep the city's
fire insurance rating down, they
say) are not putting food on
their tables. Besides, Wise said,
'those benefits are also being
paid for the city's higher salaried
employees.
There is turnover in the

understaffed. Assistant Chief
Jerry Waters, who has been with
the city more than 20 years, said
community loyalty is the reason
some of the more experienced
members have stayed.
"The only reason that most of
these folks are still here is they
want to serve this community,"
he said.
Wise, whose family members
have served the city for many
years, said he had no desire to
leave until recently when he found
out where the fire department
employees rank on the pay scale.
The department is in danger of
losing four or more members now,

Waters said. Not only are these
local men, but their combined
experience totals 20-30 years
of fighting fires and conducting
rescues, not to mention the
money the city put into training
those individuals.
"We don't want anything that
anybody else is not getting. We
just want to be treated fair,"
Waters said..
According to Wise, the last
time there was a signed contract
between the union and the city,
it resulted from a face-to-face
meeting. Whereas the prior
contract for 2000-01 was signed
the day after a sit-down with
the commission, Starling said
the current negotiations have
dragged on for nine months.
During that time, union officers
-have been meeting with the-c'ity
attorney and operations manager
acting as the commission's
bargaining team. That team has-
met alone with the commission
in executive session on multiple
occasions, during which the
union's requests were supposedly
related.
The union doubts their
concerns and appeals are being
sufficiently communicated,
however.
Mayor Wilbur Waters told
the firefighters Jan. 20 that
their contract requests had been
communicated to the board by
its attorney in executive session,
and the commission in turn
relayed what it thought it could
offer the fire department.
Commissioners said if the
attorney doesn't think it's a good
idea to meet with the union,
then they are not going to do it.
Instead they were only willing
to continue hearing from the
union through meetings with its
Brown. .
According to the state's First
Amendment Foundation, even
those meeting must comply with
the Sunshine Law, although that
has not been the case. The city's
bargaining team, which consists
of the attorney and the operations
manager, has met with union
officers in private.
According to the 2008 edition
of the Government-In-The-
Sunshine Manual published
by the foundation, "Once the
collective bargaining process
begins, whenever one side or
any of its representatives at any
time, whether before or after
the declaration of an impasse,
meets with the other side or any
of its representatives to discuss
anything relevant to the terms
and conditions of the employer-
employee relationship, such a
meeting is subject to the Sunshine
Law." ....
. For their part, firefighters
said they are still .open to
meeting with commissioners and
resolving what they believe is a
communication problem.


Two days of music, food and
fun at the saloon on U.S. 301

BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor

The Northeast Florida
Regional Chamber of
Commerce held its annual
membership banquet last
Saturday evening, and it was
a busy night.
Awards were handed out,
old board members 'were bid
farewell, new board members
were welcomed aboard,
dinner was served, and at the
end of it, everybody who was
brave and energetic enough
danced.
In between all that were
fund-raising auctions, silent
and not silent, with proceeds
going to the Bradford County
Education Foundation.
Terry Vaughn acted as the
evening's emcee. Bill Ellrod
auctioned off a number of
items donated by local-


businesses.
Circuit Judge Phyllis
Rosier swore in new boards
for the chamber, and for
Main Street Starke. *
Rosier told board members
that the decisions they made
while on the panel must
benefit the community as a
whole, even if they know
their vote might adversely
effect their own business.
The Main Street Starke
chairman's gavel was passed
from Steve Futch to Rusty
Greek, though Futch is
retained on the Main Street
board.
Greek has run the Office
Shop for the last 11 years. He
has helped organize and
promote Bike Fest since its
inception. He donates hours
to chamber projects including
membership drives and the
Strawberry Festival.


Wal-Mart received the first
of several chamber awards
when the Supercenter was
given the NFRCC Large
Business of the Year award.
Wal-Mart has donated
thousands of dollars to area
schools, lent its corporate
sponsorship to numerous
events and opened its doors
to the Starke Police
Department's Shop with a
Cop program.
The Small Business of the
Year award went to the
Hampton Lake Bed and
Breakfast. Accepting the
award were owners Freeman
and Paula Register.
'The Volunteer of the Year
was Debra Johns. Her mother
Geri Johns accepted the
award on her behalf.
The J.E. Tomlinson
Business Person of the Year
Award went to Carolyn
Carver, owner of Sporting
Chance, which produces silk
screened T-shirts,' sporting
goods and gift items. Carver
has been generous with
donations to chamber
programs and other causes in
the community for many
years.
The Eugene L. Matthews
Citizen of the Year Award is
named for the late editor and
publisher of the Telegraph.
The award went to Jennie
Reed. Reed, a vice, president
at Community State Bank.
The Pat Farnsworth

Melrose florist, hiker


Williams is remembered


Edna Williams passed
away last week. Her funeral
was held four days later on
Jan. 20 at the Melrose
Methodist Church, where she
had been a member since
arriving in Melrose almost 60
years ago. She was buried at
the Eliam Cemetery in
Melrose.
Williams was known widely
for having walked all 2,160
miles of the Appalachian Trail,
which she first attempted at
age 62.
She accomplished her goal
eight years later on the third
attempt, breaking her leg three
times in the process. She
finished the trail in 1987 when
she was 70.
Longtime Melrose residents
knew her for 40 years as a
florist and nursery business
owner.
She was born in Brazil, Ind.,
on Labor Day, 1916. She told a
Monitor reporter she enjoyed
seeing the looks on folks' faces
when she told them she was
from Brazil.
She was the oldest of eight
.brothers and sisters.
"We weren't livin' high on
the hog, but we weren't going
hungry either," Edna recalled
three years ago.
Some of her happier
memories from youth were
going to the movie theater
where she saw Red Skelton
and Perry Como perform live
before the film.
After high school
graduation, she went to work
in a grocery store. A short time
later, she met and married
Donovan Williams who, like
her dad, was a house painter.
In 1944, the couple had a
girl., Linda Jane. Two years
later, her husband passed
away, leaving Edna with their
two-year-old daughter who
was later diagnosed with a
disabling, genetically
transmitted disease.
At the suggestion of a
Melrose cousin, Edna moved
to the Lake Region from
Indiana in 1949. Her cousin
had a plant nursery, taught her
the business and helped her set
up her own shop.
In 1974, at age 58, five
months after her daughter's
death, Edna decided she would
ride a bicycle to visit a relazi' e
who lived in Key West, a trip
of nearly 400 miles.
Four years later, she set her
sights on the Appalachian
Trail, which she intended to
complete in a half-dozen
increments. Beginning at the
trail's entry point in Maine, she
suffered her first broken leg
after stumbling over a boulder.
Undaunted, she returned to
Maine after recovery and
picked up again where she had
left off. This time she made it
all the way to Tennessee,
before once again breaking a
leg.
Still determined, after her
leg mended she tried a
different tack and began at the
trail's southernmost end point
in Springer Mountain, Ga.
heading north to the place in
Tennessee where she had been
forced to stop.
She reached her goal in
1987. Edward Garvey
recognized the feat in his book
"The New Appalachian," a
guide to backpacking on the
Appalachian Trail.
Williams was a long-time
member of the Melrose
Business Association, the Red
Hatters and the Eastern Star.
She was also a member of

Bradford County drivers experienced a successful year at Columbia'Vlotorsports
Park. Pictured (1-r) are Doyle Boatwright, Tim Alldredge, Jason Garver and A.C.
Morrow.


Bradford drivers stand


out among Ellisville field


'BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Henry Hodges is one proud
"daddy."
The owner of Dixie Speed
Racing has a close bond with
not only those who drive for
his team but any driver from
Bradford County who tests his
mettle at Columbia
Motorsports Park. This past
season at the Ellisville track
featured two Bradford drivers
who won the points
championships in their
divisions, one who placed
second and another who placed
third.
"We've got many talented
racers in Bradford County,"
said Hodges, who refers to
himself as "sort of the daddy
of all of them."
Upon hearing the "daddy"
comment, driver Tim
Alldredge said, "He's the one
we call for the bail money."
Alldredge was joking, but
there is that kind of closeness
between Hodges, the Dixie
Speed pit crew and drivers
from this area in which they
will do whatever they can to
help each other out.
"We're just a big family,"


.t4..-e-.Il


Ea Si's..


Hodges said.
It is a family that showed
quite well at Columbia
Motorsports Park this past
season. Dixie Speed drivers
Doyle Boatwright and Jason
Garver always perform well at
the track, having compiled
many wins and quite a few
championships in their careers.
This year was no exception.
Boatwright, who has
approximately 50 wins in the


super late model division,
actually missed the first half of
the season. He was on a trip to
Hawaii and also missed a
couple of dates after his return.
That would have been good
news for the other super late
model drivers if not for Dixie
Speed Racing's response.
Garver, who has more than
150 career wins regardlessof

The speech
heard 'round
the world
It may not rival the
Gettysburg Address by
President Abraham Lincoln
Nov. 19, 1863, but it may
reverberate down through
history as a turning point in
American government, for
several reasons.
(1) It was given by the first
black American president (and
I am tired of hearing that
phrase; the press and many
Americans seemed to have
forgotten that President Obama
has as many white relatives as
black).
(2) The speech represents a
watershed, a change in
direction, in the way
government operates, if actions
follow words.
(3) Americans look forward
to a change in attitude about
*our nation's propensity to
.become involved in foreign
wars. Beginning with the War
with Spain in 1898, in which
Cuba was freed, throughout
the 20th Century and into the
21st Century, Americans have
been continuously involved in
wars, battles and skirmishes,
and we are bone-tired of
sending American troops to
fight and die in foreign lands.
Speaking of American
involvement in wars, President
Obama said, "Our power alone
cannot protect us, nor does it
entitle us to do as we please."
These words of wisdom
should be engraved in stone
and displayed prominently in
the halls of Congress, and in
the White House. Without a
doubt, the United States is the
most powerful military force in
the world today, but our nation
is also bankrupt as result of the
war in Iraq, fought by the
military while the civilian


Police chief
clarifies Jan,.,,,.
18 incident
Dear Editor:
This is in response to the
letter published in last week's
paper written by Mrs. Peggi
Labato. I would like to first
state that I am deeply sorry
that her daughter had such a
negative experience in Starke.
I was concerted by Mrs.
Labato's account of what had
transpired on the night of Jan.
18 and immediately began an
investigation into the incident.
As chief of police, I take the
safety of all citizens seriously.
The first thing that I would like
to address is that Mrs. Labato's
daughter was indeed stopped
by a Starke police officer due
to a headlight being out.
During the incident it was
discovered that Miss Labato
was driving without a valid
driver's license. The fee of
$141 was actually for
the offense of driving while
license is suspended or
revoked, not for improper
equipment (headlight being
out). This fee is mandated by
the state of Florida (FSS
322.34 (1)) for this offense,
not the city of Starke. Miss
Labato's daughter was issued a
warning citation for the
headlight which incurs no fees,
penalties or points. (The fee
for improper/unsafe equipment
citation is $63 if proof of
compliance is made prior to 30
days or $91 after the 30-day
period.)
When the officer conducted
a computer check on Miss
Labato's vehicle's tag, which is
standard procedure, there was
an order to seize the tag if the
owner of the vehicle was the
driver due to failure to have
insurance on the vehicle. The
officer in question did not cite
Miss Labato for failure to have
insurance as he could have
done, which would have
resulted in another fee of $91.
The location for the traffic
stop on U.S. 301 near Budget
Inn is well lit and not isolated.
I can understand the anger
that Mrs. Labato had in regards
to the alleged treatment of her
daughter. I wish that she had
taken the time to call me and
discuss this matter so that we
both could have been made
aware of the details and
circumstances.
As chief of police, I take the
actions and attitudes of my
officers seriously. If any
officer is being rude or
disrespectful, I want the public


population continues with the
"guns and butter" concept
fostered by President Lyndon
Johnson-that the nation is
rich enough to fight a war
without the nation going on a
war-time footing.
Perish the thought. If and
when the nation goes to war,
every citizen should participate
through higher taxes, if
nothing more.
Black Americans are thrilled
and excited about the election
of President Obama, as they
should be, but they cannot
elect a president without theout t
cooperation and support of
other Americans. His election
signifies a wide
disappointment with
government, especially the
Washington, D.C., variety for
many, many years, and voters'
rebellion at continuing down
the same old road was evident
in this presidential election.
It is my personal hope that
the new president will take
action to restore honesty and
integrity throughout the federal
government, .including both
elective and appointive
employees. While the outgoing
president suffered low esteem
in the minds of the public, the
esteem in which Americans
hold Congress is even lower,
and requires leadership to
effect a change in attitude
toward improving moral
behavior.
President Obama didn't win
with a landslide, but he did
have a majority and he is now
our president, and even those
of us that voted for hi's
opponent wish him every
success in fulfilling the
promise of ending the war in
Iraq and repairing the damage
of foreign relations engendered
by that war, and yes, the
arrogance in which Americans
are held by other nationals.
There's enough fence mending ,
needed to keep us busy for
quite a while.


to feel that they can come to
me with their concerns and I
will address the officer
vper.sonalyt. ;-lay-Jitl QUr r
perception of an event is very
"'different than n harm'ay have t
actually transpired. I
understand that it can be very
traumatic being pulled over by
a law enforcement officer and
I also understand that Mrs.
Labato's daughter may not
have provided her all the
information pertaining to the
traffic stop.
Finally, I would like to
address the comment that the
City of Starke is notorious for
being "known for these types
of incidents.". The citizens of
Starke enjoy one of the lowest
crime rates within the state of
Florida. We at the Starke
Police Department strive to
ensure the safety of all


We, as a nation, have
outlived our income for 50
years ahd belt-tightening time
has come. The time of plentiful
money and luxurious living,
spending money loaned to us
by China, has come and gone,
and while our children have
done well, our grandchildren
are going to live in a very
different financial world.
The national debt, bloated
beyond reason by the Iraqi
War and the lack of taxes to
fund the war, to which we
have added billions of dollars
to bail out private industry, and
will add more billions, will
constitute a burden for our
descendents for the next
several generations. President
Obama didn't address that
issue, but it will be on every
congressional agenda for the
next 100 years.
Early on, during the
presidential campaigns,
candidate' Obama seemed to
offer instant gratification for
all America's ills, and his
acceptance speech seemed to
echo that belief, but he has
said in private conversations
that it will take time to bring
about the changes he
envisions, and some may not
be effective in his first term of,
office. The general consensus
of opinion is that change ,will
come, and the nation will see
tremendous change in a
number of areas, but it won't
happen overnight. And that's
the way is should be.
The best comment I heard
Monday (Inauguration Day)
was by a man whose name I
failed to get, who said,
"Obama wanted to lead and
Bush wanted to leave. When
the door closed on the
helicopter taking Bush and
company to the airport,
champagne corks popped and
Bush proclaimed, 'Let's go to
Texas."'

Telegraph Editorial Writer


citizens, whether they a'e
residents or visitors. If Mrs.
Labato"s daughter's only
infraction had been a headlight

the only costs being what it
would be to repair the light.
However, since the daughter
did not have a valid driver's
license and had no insurance
on the vehicle, the outcome
was one citation for $141.
Please know that I am
available to discuss any
concerns. I am available
Monday through Friday from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. at (904) 964-
5400. I hope that this has
resolved any concerns' that
may have arisen during this
incident and of the actions of
my officer.

The Bradford County Food Pantry recently received an award from Bill, Brown of
Children's Table, while pantry volunteer Ruth Johns also received an award in
recognition of more than 20 years of service. Pictured (I-r) are President Steve
Hayes, Ruth Johns, Director Arley McRae and Bill Brown.


Food pantry installs new


officers, presents awards


The Bradford County Food
Pantry held its annual
luncheon and meeting Jan. 21
at First Presbyterian Church of
Starke, which included
installing new officers and
featured presentations of two
awards.
One award was presented to
-the food pantry volunteers by
Bill Brown of Children's
Table, who said he has never
seen a better volunteer base in
his 20 years of organizing and
donating more than 20 million
pounds of food to similar
organizations.
Another award was
presented to food pantry
volunteer Ruth Johns for her
more than 20 years of service
and selfless dedication.
Officers for 2009 were voted
on and installed. They are:
Rev. Steve Hayes (president),
Rev. Dennis O'Neill (vice


president), Rev. Gary Hardesty
(secretary), Veazie Jones
(treasurer), Arley. McRae
(director), Tom Jones (food
coordinator) and Applean
Brown (volunteer coordinator).
The meeting also included a
presentation of highlights from
2008. The food pantry, despite
the current state of the
economy, fed more than
10,000 people, which equates
to more than one third of the
population of Bradford
County. Of the number fed,
5,051 were children.
Volunteers processed more
than 5,000 bags of. food-
1,000 more than the total from
2007, which was the'previous
high.
Food pantry personnel cite
two reasons for the
organization's continued
existence: the community at
large has supported the


program and volunteer
workers have met-and are
still meeting-the challenges
of feeding people every day..
If an individual, church, or
business would like to help
meet the growing need of
supplying food .for the less
fortunate, please call McRae at
(904) 964-2459. Those who
would like to volunteer to help
distribute food may call Brown
at (904) 964-7955.
One of the food pantry's
biggest fundraisers continues
this year when entertainer
James Rogers performs .a
concert at the Bradford High
School auditorium Feb. 28 at 7
p.m. Anyone interested in
selling tickets or promoting the
concert in their church or
organization should call Elissa
Biggs at (904) 964-8988 or
Gladys McRae at (904) 964-
2459.

Late night
shenanigans
at LB store
result in three
arrests
BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Just after midnight on Jan. 9,
Union County Sheriff's
Deputy John Gootee
responded to a theft at the
Kangaroo Food Store on S.R.
121 in Lake Butler.
A BOLO alert was issued
and shortly thereafter, Deputy
James Crews spotted a suspect
matching 'the description. The
suspect, Alvin Phillip Fulton,
52, was found with two
packages of batteries stolen
from the store in 'his pocket.
The value of the stolen items
was $10.58. Security cameras
in the store also provided
video of the theft.
Records revealed that since
2000, Fulton, who is listed as
being homeless, has served
time for two prior burglary
arrests in both Columbia and
Orange counties.
Then, on Jan. 17, just after 3
a.m., Deputy David Shane
responded to a disturbance at
the same store resulting in the
-arrest of two men.


Store clerks reported that
two male subjects, .who had
appeared to be extremely
intoxicated, were asked to
leave. One subject allegedly
became irate, shouted
profanities at the clerks and
slammed the door damaging
the hinges as he exited the
store.
Outside the store, the subject

In Memory

In Loving Memory of
Joseph Wesley
Jenkins
November 1937-January 1998
In the arms of angels, someone
leaves;
Here on Earth, some grieves;
In just moments from now, a
beautiful mystery somehow;
Someone stands at Heaven's
gate, filled with happiness as
they wait;
No more pain nor tears, only
treasured memories of their
years.
Down here we're holding on,
we can't accept they are gone.
Weeping as we call their name,
our lives will never be the
same.
Someone stands at the gate to
Heaven..
Love always,
Mary, Demetrik,
Derrick, Terry
and Edward

Dan went straight .from high

division, moved up to the
super late model division and
drove Boatwright's car. All he
did was claim the points
championship.
"I hadn't ever ,won one in
the super late models, so that
was definitely a highlight,"
Garver said. "I won 10 races,
so that was a good for the first
year driving in that class."
It was the eighth points
championship for Garver, who
has been racing 15 years. He
won the points championship
in' the Florida modified
division in the 2007 season.
and has competed-with
success-,in just about every
division at Columbia
Motorsports Park.
"I've got a good crew,"
Garver said. "If it wasn't for
them, I couldn't do it."
Despite the fact he missed a
lot of the season, Boatwright
was still able to finish third in
the points standings in the
super late model series.
"I didn't expect to be in the
top five when it was all said
and done," Boatwright said.
Hodges said his goal was for
one of the Dixie Speed drivers
to win a points championship
for Harold Davis, who has
supported the team
tremendously. Since Garver
was well on his way to doing
that, Hodges did not want to
hand the keys to the car Garver
was driving back to
Boatwright. Instead, Dixie
Speed purchased another car
for Boatwright to drive.
Therefore, during the second
half of the season, Boatwright
and Garver were battling it out
in the same division.
"There's no friction between


the two drivers," Hodges said.
"They work together. They're
part of the team."
Boatwright was quick to
compliment Garver, saying,
"Honestly, I don't know if I
could've done 'as good as
Jason did at ,the beginning of
this year."
Still, despite the missed
time, Boatwri'ght returned to
the track to claim two wins. He
also won three or four heat
races.
Boatwright admitted that he
and Garver can pretty much
bank on finishing first or
second in most races in
Ellisville-(the competition is a.
little tougher in Georgia,
Boatwright said), but like
Garver, Boatwright said the
credit goes to the Dixie Speed
Racing team. '
"Henry and everybody who
works on the cars usually find
a way to get the right parts at
the right time to get us right
back over there somehow,"
Boatwright said.
Hodges recalled one incident
in which one of the Dixie
Speed cars was, as he termed
it, in "intensive care." People
predicted it would take a
month for that car to be ready
for the track, but it took the
Dixie Speed crew just six days.
"People thought I had two of
those little red cars," Hodges
said with a laugh.
Hodges said the key to
making Dixie Speed Racing a
success is a crew that works on
the cars all the time. It's not
unusual for team members to
show up at the garage on their
days off to work.
Work done in the pits is,
without, a doubt, important as
well. The Dixie Speed pit crew
Is--composed of Boatwriglt,
Garver, Davis, Betty Combs,
Gene Combs, Wayne Davis,
Ryan Mason, Tim Parrott,


Sonny Taylor and Mike
Zeigler.
Though not members of the
Dixie Speed family, Alldredge
--and A.C. Morrow could be
thought of as adoptive family
members. They are both from
Bradford County and both
made their marks in Ellisville
this year, with Morrow
winning the points
championship in the V-8
bomber division and Alldredge
taking second in the points
race in the pure stock division.
Morrow is no stranger to
racing, but he had been out of
it for approximately 30 years.
"He just wanted to prove he
wasn't getting old," Alldredge
said of the 65-year-old
Morrow.
Actually, Morrow, said his
inspiration to return to the
track came from sitting in the
stands at Columbia
Motorsports- Park and not
being able to see any Fords
competing on the track.
Morrow is, as Hodges said, a
"dyed-in-the-wool Ford man."
"I kind of got tired of
watching tile ( he) slow,"
Morrow said. "I bus-ted il up."
Morro'. drives a Ford
Thunderbird, and ii'sa rarity at
the track. 4
"I don't think there's another
Ford out ihere in an\ class,"
Alldredge -,aid
Morrow has take delightt in
claiming the division
championship as a "senior
citizen" driving "the heaviest
car with the smallest enginee"
Alidredge and Hodges
marvel at the fact Morrow was
out there on the 'trjik in a car
with working windshield
wipers and ii workii AC.
Hodges I.mighcd as he, talked
about Morrow ridingn, aroundd
the track listening to his ,radio.
"It's supposed )to bf a true,
off-the-road V-8 stock,"


Morrow said. "That's what it
is-a '96 Thunderbird, true to
form."
Prior to racing at this past
year at Columbia Motorsports
Park, Morrow had raced dirt
tracks for approximately eight
years in the 1970s. In fact,
Alldredge said his father used
to race alongside Morrow.
AIIdredge, on the other
hand, is in just his second year
of racing. Still, that -didn't
prevent him from placing
second in the points race in the
pure stock division.
"I didn't think that was even
possible," AIIdredge said.
"The guy, who beat me in
points, he's won points six
years in a row. These guys
have been racing a long time.
They've'g6t,a lot of seat time',"
Alldredge, who, like
Boatwright and Garver, drives
a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, did
not win any feature races at
Columbia Motorsports Park
(he did win both races he ran
in Georgia). He was there
every week, however, placing
in the top three or four after
finishing second in his first
points race of the season.
"I kind of held that position
the rest of the year," he said.
"Then it was just a challenge
to hang onto it."
It was quite the sophomore
outing for Alldredge, who
admitted lie was scared his
first time out on the track in
2007. v
"TIhese guys were flying
around me. I didn't think I'd
ever keep up," he said. "When
I started, out, they'd lap me
three or four times every race.
13y the end of the season, I was
able to start keeping up with
them some."
Alldredge said he got better
by watching .the "fast guys."
He would follow them and
mimic their moves. If they got


away from him, he'd simply
wvait for 'them to come back
around and he would follow
again.
This past year, Alldredge
had people following him. He
found it's hard to be the leader.
"When you get out front, it's
a different situation because
everybody's following you,
waiting for you to screw up,"
Alldredge said. ,

For Alldredge and the other
drivers, sponsors are
important. As it is, the drivers
pour a lot of their own money
into their cars, but any
assistance they get beyond that
helps keep them on the track.
Two of Alldredge's sponsors
are his brothers: Randy, who is
.with Sun State, Collision,
Center, 'and Rodney, who
rebuilt the car's roll cage.
"If it wasn't for them
helping me out, I couldn't
race," Alldredge said.
Alldredge's other sponsors
are Holland's Auto Parts and
Hollister.
Morrow's sponsors are
Advance Auto Parts, Auto
Zone, Bradford Auto Salvage,
Jason Garver Racing, J.T.
Performance, Morrow
Enterprises, Showcase
Advertising, Starke Citgo, Sun
State Collision and Town and
Country Ford.

Sponsors for Boatwright and
Garver are Advance Auto
Parts, the Bradford County
Telegraph, Dick's Wings,
Drummond Financial and
Falstreaux Heating and Air.
The next season at Columbia
Motorsports Park begins the
first week in March. Hodges
said Dixie Speed Racing also
plans to participate in races in
Cecil, Ga., which begin the
first week in April.

A huge second half by
Danerrius Sheffield was not
enough to overcome a slow
start by the Bradford boys'
basketball team, which lost 74-
63 to District 3-4A opponent
Santa Fe Jan. 24 in Alachua.
Sheffield scored 25 points in
the second half, making five
shots from beyond the arc, but
the Tornadoes (15-3, 9-2 in
District 3) never quite
recovered from a poor start
that saw them outscored 20-10
in the first quarter.
"We just came out
sluggish," said Bradford head
coach Mark McGraw, whose
team had won eight straight.
Also, Santa Fe attempted 55
free throws, while Bradford
attempted just 15. The Raiders
successfully converted on 30
of their attempts.
"That, basically, was the
difference in the game,"
McGraw said.
Eugene Blye helped the
Tornadoes trim Santa Fe's lead
to six at the half. He scored 15
points in the second quarter
and finished with 19 overall.
Sheffield, who scored 27
points,: accounted for 11 of
Bradford's 13 third-quarter
points.
Bradford travels to Orange

district opponent Ridgeview at

would score the game's first
goal, but her shot attempt in
the seventh minute just sailed
.high. A few seconds later,
however, the ball was back
inside the Taylor box. Madison
Colaw headed the ball past the
charging goalie for a 1-0
Keystone lead.
The Wildcats tied the game
'with a goal in the 111h minute,
but approximately, three
minutes later, Taylor was
called for a handball. That set
Crane up for a shot at the goal
from approximately 15 yards
out, which she converted for a
2-1 lead.
Taylor took several shots on
goal the remainder of the half,
but came up empty. That
included a breakaway attempt
that saw Keystone goalie
Cecilie Shealy come out,
challenge her opponent and'
successfully make the stop.
That was the Wildcats' 'last
good look at the goal as they
did not muster much of a threat
in the second half.
Keystone, on the other hand,
took several good shots in the
second half. However, the
Indians only scored once-the
result of a deflection .off of a
Taylor player.
The winner of- tonight's
quarterfinal game will play
either Tayor or Trinity
Catholic -, (20-3-2) in the
semifinals Tuesday, Feb. 3.
Keystone would host Taylor or
travel to Ocala to play Trinity,
while Umatilla would travel in
either scenario.

Goodwin records hat
trick in semifinals
Kayla Goodwin played a
large part in helping the
Indians earn the right to play
for the district championship,
scoring three goals in a 4-1
win over Interlachen in the
semifinals, which were held
Jan.20.
Goodwin scored the game's
first goal off of an assist from
Ashley Osteen. The Rams
would eventually tie the score;,
but Crane gave the Indians a 2-
1 lead when she converted on a
penalty kick.
Any hopes the home team
had were quickly dashed by
two Goodwin goals-both off
of Katie McCollum assists-in
a short span of time in the
second half.


KH boys

finals berth

Tuesday
Can the Keystone Heights
boys' soccer team win a
second straight district
championship? If the Indians
won a semifinal game of the
District 5-3A tournament this
past Tuesday, they will have
put themselves in position to
do just that.
Keystone entered the
tournament-hosted by
Interlachen High School-as
the second seed after
compiling a 5-1 record against
district foes. The Indians
played third seed Crescent
City. The winner of that game
will play either top seed
Pierson Taylor or fourth seed
Interlachen, who also played
each other this past Tuesday,
in the championship game

Once the Tornadoes created
a cushion, they held the ball,
forcing the Wildcats to commit
fouls.
"They were so tired
'defensively they couldn't
rnake any shots," McGraw
said, noting that Baker scored
just four points in the final
quarter.
Blye scored 10 of his 20
points in the fourth quarter and
made 6-of-7 free throws (he
was 10-of-12 from the foul
line overall).
Sheffield led the Tornadoes
with 23 points, making seven
3-pointers. His eight second-
quarter points helped Bradford
turn a two-point lead into one
of five at the half.
