Two arrested for sex crimes against kids


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

SSheriffs -employees were shocked
when one of their own came forward
last week and confessed to a nearly
decade-long sexual relationship with a
child.
Howard Walter Austin, 46, was
arrested March 14 charged with sexual
battery on a person less than 12 years
of age.
Austin, who was responsible for
information technology in the sheriff's
office, contacted Detective Kevin
Mueller around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday
and asked to speak to him in person.
Mueller drove to Austin's residence
where the defendant confessed to having
a sexual relationship with a juvenile.
According to Capt. Brad Smith,public
information officer for the sheriff's
office, Austin was taken into custody
and transported to the sheriff's office
where his confession was recorded on
videotape.
Austin was booked in to the county
jail but transferred to an undisclosed

facility for security purposes, Capt.
Smith said.
Capt. Smith, confirmed that Austin's
confession came as a result of the
victim's plan to come forward. The


abuse went on for approximately eight
years, beginning when the victim was
just 7 years old.
Sheriff Gordon Smith terminated
Austin's employment immediately upon
learning of the arrest.
"It is devastating to hear of a innocent
child being victimized in this manner,"
Sheriff Smith said.
On March 16, the Starke Police
Department arrested another man
who confessed to having sex with a
juvenile.
Nineteen-year-old Javontee Laqwan
Jones, also known as "Tay," was on
probation for aggravated assault with
intent to commit a felony. He was
arrested for violating the terms of his
probation after the juvenile victim's
mother disclosed the sexual relationship
to Jones' probation officer.
Police Capt. Barry Warren
interviewed Jones following the arrest
and said the defendant confessed to
having sex with the victim from August
or September 2008 through January
2009.
"These grown men need, to quit
victimizing our children, and until

Starke attorney says


FMPA is obsolete


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Starke City Commission will.
tap a rate stabilization fund established
during the last budgeting cycle to help
utility customers pay their next electric
bills.
While City Clerk Linda Johns said
the city's under-recovery of revenue
means it cannot afford to offer a lot of
extensions on bills already issued, the
use of these funds would help lower the
bills set to be mailed out at the first of
April,
What was originally stated to be
the city's portion of the S6 million
transmission bill from Florida Power
and Light to the Florida Municipal
Power Agency, of which the city is a
member, is actually -around $90,000,
not $300,000 as previously stated.
Most of that was paid in the months
of December through February. The
remaining amount, around 23,000, is
part of what the commission is trying
to offset with the stabilization money.
The commission will contribute
around $55,000 to leverage the
upcoming bills,Johns said.Accordingto
Operations Manager Ricky Thompson,
that should lower bills by $20 per 1,000
kilowatt-hours of electricity used.
Progress has been made on reducing


the overall $6 million bill and
research into additional charges over
the previously discussed 16-month
period. FMPA's Bud Boudreaux said
erroneous charges included charges for
transmission during a state blackout
during which FPL told utilities to put
every available generating unit online.
A day-by-day ,investigation into the
unforeseen transmission charges is
ongoing.
Boudreaux said FPL's ability to go
back and assess charges for 16-months
resulted from the company's request for
a change in regulations at the federal
level that was granted by the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission.
"So you're saying because we did
not know anything was being changed,
we have to pay this penalty?" Johns
asked. She said something was wrong
with that story, and Commissioner
Carolyn Spooner asked what kind of
representation FMPA provided its
member cities when such federal rule
changes are being considered.
Boudreaux said there are attorneys
in Washington, D.C., representing
the agencies members, but Johns said
those attorneys let the city go down the
drain.

Starke has come up with a unique
way to help fund the outdoor stage it
wants to-build at the site of its former
power plant.
The site is slated for further
environmental cleanup resulting
firtiii yias f Utihg diesel to generate
electricity. The contractor o erseeing
the cleanup, Advanced Environmental
Technologies, has pledged to \\ork \ ith
local subcontractors, among them the
New River Regional Landfill.
The, cleanup will require the
excavation, transport and disposal of
tons of contaminated soil from the site.
Given its relationship-with -the .local
landfill, which is jointly owned by
'Baker, Bradford'and Union counties,
Starke is being given the same disposal
price as the member counties-$24 a
ton.
Because the landfill can.use the soil
as ground cover, the city will be getting


a kickback of the disposal fees from the
landfill, and that money will go to help
build the amphitheater.
The landfill's attorney, Jon Wershow,
had questions 'about the arrangement
when it was first raised at a meeting last
month. Since the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is granting
the money to the city specifically for
the cleanup, he questioned returning
Sthemoney to the city to be reused for
another purpose.
Wershow wanted to know if DEP
was aware of the city's plans since it
was basing the amount of money being
granted to the city in part on the cost
of soil disposal. Technically, there is no
cost since the plan is to tprn around and
rebate that money.
Soime board- members had similar
concerns but did approve the
arrangement, minus any costs incurred
by the landfill, pending the attorney's
final approval.
Since that meeting, both the contractor
and the landfill have been in touch


Where does the city end?


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


City of Starke Operations Manager
Ricky Thompson recently moved the
city limits sign south of Wal-Mart after
research revealed that the city annexed
U.S. 301 and right of way on either side
when it annexed the supercenter traffic
light into the city.
The traffic light was annexed so city
police -had jurisdiction there, although
the assumption must have been that
the light was annexed from the west
just as the new Wal-Mart was annexed
because it was contiguous to the city
spray field.
The matter was raised after Danny
Griffis and his engineer approached the
city commission about tapping into the
water and sewer lines that travel down
the 'west side of the highway. Griffis
wants to build a carwash between
Knuckledraggers and The Purple
Gator, but the parcel sits outside the
city limits.
The city requires sewer and water
customers to voluntarily annex into the
city if they want utility service. The
policy was established to give people an
incentive to join the city. There is also
the matter of fairness. Businesses within
the city that have utilities also pay city
ad valorem taxes but unincorporated
businesses do not.
For Griffis, the issue was finding
other property owners to the west who
were also willing to annex as well so

the entire area would be contiguous to
existing city property. ,
During' discussions with the city
commission, the option of annexing
the highway down to Griffis' lot
was discussed. Apparently no one
realized the corridor had already
been incorporated into the city until
Thompson began digging. The legal
description of the ordinance approved
late in 2006 describes the area from the
former city limits to just south of the
supercenter traffic light on 301.
Shortly after the annexation, the city

Has DOT found Mullins Grade solution?


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Just about everyone has had a
reason to complain about plans to
pave and redirect Southeast 144'h
Avenue, also known as Mullins
Grade, sending representatives
from the Florida Department
of Transportation back to the
drawing board several times.
First, residents weren't happy
with a plan to take the road
through Lincoln City. Then
city and county commissioners
jointly opposed an unsignalized
intersection with 301 a little
further to the north. When DOT
reconsidered and decided a
traffic light could be put at the
intersection with a couple of
other adjustments, businesses
opposed removing the light at
Deerfoot shopping center and
closing the medians there and at
Steel Mill Road.
SThough it's unlikely any design
will be able to please everyone,
DOT is getting ready to come
back to the county with a plan
they hope will address most of
the concerns expressed.
County Manager Brad Carter
met with DOT recently and
said the plan involves building
the road so that Mullins Grade
intersects with 301 at the existing
signalized intersection at the
Deerfoot Shopping Center.
If that's the case, the plan


should please commissioners
who insisted on a traffic light,
businesses who wanted the
intersection to remain open and
residents who don't want the new
road in their neighborhood.
The timeline for part of the
project may also be moved up.
Carter said DOT wants to
attend the county commission
meeting on April 6 to further
discuss the plan. That is the
commission's morning meeting,
which takes.place at 9:30 a.m.

Money
scheduled for
bypass project
DOT recently released its
tentative five-year work schedule
for fiscal years 2010-2014, and it
contains several million dollars
for right of way purchases for the
Starke bypass project.
A total of $33.1 million has
been added to the work plan
for those land acquisitions, and
while that sounds like a lot, the
last estimate for construction the
western bypass around the city
was approximately $230 million.
It is the most money earmarked
for the project to date, however.
The acquisition money has been
scheduled for Fiscal Year 2013.
Also, after Carter and County
Chairman Doyle Thomas and


attended a public hearing on
the work plan, DOT advanced
construction of a sidewalk on
C.R. 229 from S.R. 16 to Starke
Elementary from Fiscal Year
2012 to next year.
Another addition to the work
program would have DOT
repaving C.R. 237 from 18 to the
Alachua County Line in 2014.
The work program is tentative
and ultimately depends upon
legislative approval and fund
appropriation as well as inclusion
in DOT's final five-year work
program for 2010-2014.

County not

happy with
CSX repairs
Carter also said the county has
sent a letter to CSX to address
the way _inwhich recent track
repairs were handled. Cartersaid
the repairs resulted in a number
of citizen complaints.
While needed, Carter said
the repairs caused too many
disruptions.
The letter signed by Chairman
Doyle and Sheriff Gordon Smith
points out that too many crossings
were at once. In Lawtey, as many
as four crossings were closed
multiple days, resulting in a
five-mile detour for emergency
vehicles. Three other crossings


Last call for sewer applications


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

There have been no further
applications under the city
of Starke's sewer connection
program, even following media
exposure and information sent
to local churches and with
utility bills.
The program gives
homeowners .the opportunity to
tie into the city's sewer system
at not cost.
Grant writer Scott Modesitt
was at a loss for new suggestions
about how to attract new
applicants to help the city spend
around $200,000 in state money
to hook people up to the sewer
system.
The city will give a little
more time for applications.
March 31 is the final deadline.

The all but one of the prior
applications met all of the
city's requirements, but given
that there were only four total,
all four were approved by the
commission. The grant writer's
estimate put the cost of each
project at around $3,000.
The homes are located on
Hayes Avenue, West Andrews
Street and Harutha Drive.
There are three set
requirements that all applicants
must meet. Applicants must own
(or be buying) the home that
will be connected to the sewer
system. This means they will
not qualify if they are renting
their residence. Landlords may
not apply either since the home
must be the applicant's primary
address, not a rental property,
vacation home, etc. Finally,
applicants must be current on
all utility fees owed to the city.
Those who owe the city money


were posted to warn motorists of
the track conditions.
While county officials
contacted several CSX staff
members, the county received
no assistance and no access to
a supervisor who could rectify
matters.


for utilities are not eligible to
apply for a sewer connection.
Those with limited incomes,
the elderly and handicapped
will, however, be given priority.
Those with failing septic systems
may also receive preference. But
income, age or other need-based
methods of ranking are, at least
for now, proving unnecessary. As
demand stands, it seems there is
more than enough money to go
around without need becoming
a factor in the decision process.
Applications are available at
city hall. Those who need help
filling out the application should
inquire at city hall about special
hours when they can receive
assistance. Call (904) 964-5027.
Those who become city sewer
customers will be responsible
for paying a monthly charge
for that service as part of their
overall utility bill.


The letter, mailed to CSX
CEO Michael Ward, requests a
meeting to resolve what it calls
"a major breakdown in public
relations and communication
within your organization."

DO YOU OR MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY SUFFER FROM

EXCRUCIATING PAIN?

DEPRESSION?

LOW SELF ESTEEM?

IF SO, YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS MAN SPEAK.

DAVID WHEELER
NORCROSS, GA.

In 1996, David Wheeler and his good wife Carolyn were living a very normal life with three
wonderful children. David served several years as a minister. He also held the position of assistant to the
president of Faulkner University, and, at the time, was director of development at Greater Atlanta
Christian School.
December 12, 1986 just was another beautiful day for the Wheeler family until David attempted to
pick up a postage machine and something in his back popped. This would change the lives of the family
forever.
David lived through years of pain, suffering and depression. He endured six surgeries and endless
treatments, all to no avail. He weathered the storms and, with Carolyn's help, began to put his life back
together. You will be uplifted as you follow him through the darkness of despair of pain and suffering to
the light of stronger father and greater service to man and God. David is now a well -known watercolor
artist. See his work at www.DavidWheeler.us

A proposed
site plan of the
795-acre future
industrial
park on S.R.
100 adjacent
to Gilman
Building
Products.


New industrial site


planned
SProject aims to
Attract businesses,
create jobs

SPlans to create an industrial
park on S.R. 100 southeast of
Lake Butler were approved
at Monday evening's Union
County Board ,of County
Commissioners' meeting.
The property owner of Plum
Creek and county staff have
worked together to address
comments raised by the Florida
I Department of Community
i Affairs, clearing the way for
commissioners to adopt the
requested comprehensive plan
;amendment for the 795-acre
tract, located' near Gilman
.,sawmill.
Union County is part of
the North Central RACEC
E group (Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern) that
k provides benefits through
the. state of Florida with the
t assistance of Enterprise Florida
? in attracting and, locating
Significant employers.
"Presently more than 50
; percent of Union County
e residents work outside of the
county," said Todd. Powell,
southern region director for
Plum Creek.
"We view this as an
opportunity to recruit businesses
to this community," Powell
said, "The proposed. industrial
park will provide ~t l attractive
site, marketed to attract and


d in Union


support jobs for Union County,
ensuring that morey remains
in the county strengthening the
community."
Just how many jobs it could
mean is not known, but with a
maximum area of 6.1 million
square feet for industrial use,
it could mean potentially
hundreds of jobs for the county.
It also means a considerable
amount of revenue added to the
county's tax rolls.
Commissioner Jimmy
Tallman asked if traffic
considerations had been
made for the area. S.R. 100 is
presently a two-lane highway
that already has a significant
amount of semi trucks traveling
the road each day.
Powell said that is one of the
reasons the first phase of the
project is capped at 2.5 million
square feet of industrial use
until 2013.
"The roadways can handle
the traffic to that point, but
ultimately as we add'more end
users, the road will need to be
improved, otherwise businesses
wouldn't want to consider
locating here.
A citizen asked who would
be responsible for waste
management-natural and
industrial 'waste removal.
Powell answered that would
be the responsibility of the end
user as part of their management
plan. "This will not be a burden
lo ihe tiapa\.ers oF.the county,"
he said.


Commitments by Plum Creek
include:,
Phase I of allowable
development will consist of 2.5
million square feet of industrial
use and is the maximum
allowable amount through
2013,
A minimum of 10 percent
of the parcel will remain
undisturbed open space,
Industrial uses and/or
development will be prohibited
within all preserved wetlands
and wetland buffers,
Potable water and
wastewater treatment will be
provided by a private entity so
it will be financially responsible
for the construction and
operation of the utilities, thus
creating no burden on local
utility companies,
Green practices for low
impact development will
be used, making the Union
County industrial site resource
efficient and environmentally
protective.
"At Plum Creek-, econrluct
all of our business with a
strong commitment to the
environment," said Powell.
"We believe, our close
collaboration with county staff,
the city of Lake Butler and
our neighbors has resulted in
a project that will allow Union
County to seize new economic
opportunities, while assuring
the long-term protection of
wildlife, plants, soil and water
quality." -


Click it or Ticket


effort enhanced in UC
r F.-i 1..II


According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA), rural
drivers and their passengers are
among the least likely American
motorists to regularly use their
safety belts.
In fact, 1,445 people were
killed in motor vehicle crashes
in rural areas of north' Florida
during 2007, and 30 percent of
people killed in those crashes
were not using their safety belts
at the time of the crash.
That is why"the Union
County Sheriff's Office has
joined forces with NHTSA,
the Florida Department of
Transportation, state and
local highway safety and law
enforcement leaders across
36 counties to launch a high
visibility enforcement initiative
called Click It or Ticket-Rural
'Safety Belt Initiative. The
goal is to save more lives by
convincing more rural drivers
and their passengers to always
buckle up.
"No more warnings. No
more excuses. We're going
to send the Click It or Ticket
message loud and clear," said
Union County Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead. "Too many drivers
and their passengers are getting
killed, so we want to make sure
they are buckled up-every
trip, every time."
Drivers and passengers in
rural areas, and particularly
those in pickup trucks, have
much lower safety belt usage
rates than the occupants of all
other. vehicles. In 2008, the
observed safety belt use rate
among pickup truck drivers and
passengers in the 36-county
area was 76 percent compared
to the 81 percent in cars and
more than 85 percent in vans
and SUVs.


March Dimes
fundraiser set
A March of Dimes March for
Babies fundraiser car wash will
be held at Spires IGA in Lake
Butler this Saturday, March 21,
from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.


The Click It or Ticket rural
safety belt initiative is set for
March 13-21.
"We are going to step up
enforcement efforts to remind
everyone to always wear their
safety belts," said Whitehead.
"The simple step of buckling up
is the single best defense against
ejection and will increase your


odds of survival in a light truck
crash by as much as 80 percent
in the event of a rollover."
SThe ejection rate for
occupants of light trucks in a
crash is nearly double the rate
for vehicle occupants, mostly
due to the lack of safety belt
use.

Controlled burn gets out


The Keystone Heights Volunteer Fire Department was one of several stations on the
scene at last Monday's McRae/Belmore fire.


KHES practices for fou


Students at Keystone Heights
Elementary School perform
three drills several times each
year. One is a rehearsal for what
to do if the building catches on
fire, another is what to do when
the classroom is notified that an
intruder is on the campus. And
then there's a tornado drill.
Because of Clay County's
high use of portable buildings,
in lieu of building more concrete
block or brick classrooms,
almost 25 percent to a third of
the elementary school's classes
are housed in portables at any
given time.
This doesn't normally present
a problem,until the Lake Region
encounters a fairly' frequent
North Florida condition: bad
weather-especially hurricanes
and tornados.


Hurricanes are a different
issue, since their arrival can be
fairly accurately predicted days
before they arrive. Tornados
can drop in pretty much
unannounced with only a few
minutes notice.
In February, the elementary
school took part in a state-wide
tornado emergency drill.
As part of the mock exercise,
students in classrooms all over
the elementary campus were
notified that a tornado had been
spotted in the area. Students
and teachers in the portables
lined up and walked slowly but
promptly into a hard-built area
of the school. Students kneeled
in lines down the corridors
and covered their heads while
teachers monitored the group.
Faculty members brought along
canvas bags filled with first aid

supplies that might be needed
in cases of real emergencies.
On hand were several
representatives from the
Keystone Heights Volunteer
Fire Department,including John
Ward, the town's emergency
planner.
Principal Mary Mimbs and
Ward timed the exercise from
its initial announcement over
the school's public address
system until the last child
was safely sheltered in the
corridors. Mimbs and Ward
said it took students about
five minutes to prepare, from
the announcement to the last
student arriving in the hallway.
Ward said the safety zone
was estimated at five to seven
minutes. Mimbs said students
had also been evacuated to the
school's media center.,


KH True Value suffers wind damage


Wind damage can come in
a variety, of styles, not just
tornadoes. In February,
Keystone Building Center co-
owner Doug Wise described a
"micro-burst" that damaged the
True Value Hardware site.
The area was already under
a tornado watch. The tornado-
like wind formation touched
down at the KBC around 9:45
a.m., and traveled through the
lumber shed, appearing and
disappearing in seconds with
no warning.
Lumber was lifted off stacks
and shelves; signs were broken;
rolls of fence wire were turned
over like matchsticks. A hitch
was badly damaged when the
trailer was blown at right angles


MBCA meets

The Melrose Business and
Community Association met in
February.
Steve Thrift was awarded
a Community Service Award
in recognition of his years
of s6trice to the Melrose

Parade.Thrift indicated he plans
to continue with the parade.
Judy MacLaren brought
the group up to date on the
announced sturgeon farm to
be located near C.R. 219 and
S.R. 26. The proposed facility
has many requirements to
meet before it can be approved
by the St. Johns River Water
Management District board and
then Putnam County, McLaren
said. A suggestion was
made to have an appropriate
representative of the sturgeon
farm speak to the MBCA.
Deborah Strickland of North
Florida Regional Medical
Center's Melrose Senior Care
Center confirmed the center is
moving along well.
Jonathan Leslie, Florida

CLEANUP
Continued from Page 1A

Cleanup update:
former contractor
appeals decision to
switch
Chad Gunter of Advanced
Environmental Technologies gave the
city commission an update March 3 on
the power plant site cleanup.
The city is still waiting for the project
funding to be approved, but AET has
been working with local contractors as
promised to develop a plan to finish the
cleanup. That includes, he said, using
local trucking companies, local backfill
and concrete, and the local landfill.
The project minus sod and new
concrete-which will be taken care of
under separate work orders-already
totals more than $1 million.


Every such project around the state
is funded based on its score. The score
includes consideration of the risk posed
by the contamination. The funding
schedule fluctuates based on the amount
of money available.
The Starke project is designed to
finish cleaning up diesel contamination
of the soil at the former power plant site.
The site will be returned to its existing
state, after which the city plans to build
an open-air stage there.
Starke recently switched contractors
overseeing the project again. AET took
over for Fortis Environmental Group
in much the same way Fortis took the
project from AET a number of years
ago-by playing on the commission's
preference for working with local
people.
At the city meeting March 3, Christy
Leger of Fortis Environmental Group
disputed Gunter's prior statements,
saying 33 percent of the work order is
going to local contractors. She also said


Gunter had turned in a proposal to the
state that calls for seven weeks of work,
not four as he told the commission in a
prior meeting.
According to Leger, Starke's funding
priority with the Department of
Environmental Protection has dropped
since it switched back to AET.
She said the Fortis didn't even know
the city was 'considering changing
contractors. They were doing what they
supposed to do, she said, citing a number
of meetings attefided with the operations
manager and city commission.
She said their work proposal used
almost as much local work, with an
exception being the landfill. She said
that was because the city would be liable
for any contamination leaching into the.
landfill and they didn't feel comfortable
putting the city in that position.
She said; however, they would use
the landfill if the city named Fortis the
contractor for the project again. She
also said that while it wasn't feasible


for Fortis to use only local contractors,
their team would use them when they
could.
Landfill Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal discussed disposal of the
contaminated material at New River at a
workshop the city held March 9, saying
the city had liability should any of the
waste-including weekly residential
and commercial disposal-should
contamination leak from the landfill
into the surrounding environment.
The design of the landfill makes that
unlikely, however, and the landfill
carries millions of dollars worth of
insurance in case it ever was to become
an issue.
At the workshop, Fortis continued
to answer questions about how much
local workers would benefit from the
change in contractors. In particular,
the questioned funneling project
funds through another firm, Horizon
Environmental of Alabama. As project
manager, Horizon will be on site


working with local subcontractors.
In spite of that and other discussion,
the city commission did not seem
interested in reversing its decision.
At the March 3 meeting, Mayor
Wilbur Waters and Operations Manager
Ricky Thompson said there had been
communication problems about the
status of the project, although Fortis'
Laura Mooney denied that.
Leger provided a list of meeting
attended and an er-mail trail she
said disproved any communications
breakdown. She said there was never any
dissatisfaction expressed and suggested
things were being communicated to
Thompson that were not being passed
on to the board.
Fortis, had made progress on the
project over the years, including
contamination cleanup and removal of
the power plant building.
Work is stalled now pending a release
of funding from the state, but that could
come by the end of the week. -


FMPA
Continued from Page 1A

could be said to appease some
residents, including one six-
year resident who wanted to
abolish the city as a way of
getting rid of FMPA and the cost
of city government, Attorney
Terry Brown took a swing at it,
essentially saying the agency had
long outlived its usefulness.
"There is no need for FMPA
anymore," Brown said.
Tired of commercial utilities,
Brown said FMPA was formed
by cities with the belief they
could band together and serve
their electric needs. They
wanted cheaper electricity, he
said, but also the right of self-
determination.
While successful for a while,
Brown said poor management
decisions have meant FMPA is no
longer able to provide electricity
as affordably. Starke and the
other cities could purchase


electricity at a better price from
other utilities, he said.
"What needs to be done is
collectively for FMPA and the
executive committee to look at,
in terms of strategic planning
and the future, the idea of not
putting online new power plants
and investing more money and
running up the debt that we're all
liable for, but instead the idea of
liquidating the assets, selling the
assets to other power companies,
satisfying the debt, and then
allowing the cities to enter into
independent contracts with the
local power companies that are
providing electricity."
In short, the cities are;locked
into the same long-term contract,
sharing the same debt, and they
need to work together to free
themselves.
Instead of adding to that debt
and prolonging their obligation to
the agency, Brown said the agency
needs to change direction.
"I think most of the members
would say they would rather

be somewhere else than with-*
FMPA," said Brown, suggesting
Starke meet with its sister cities
to determine if there is any longer
a need for the agency.
Spooner asked Brown to be
involved in building a coalition
of cities. Thompson and Mayor
Wilbur Waters are on the agenda
for of the FMPA executive board
meeting in Orlando next week.
There was some talk of aid
that might be available to those
having difficulty paying their
utility bills. Applications for
energy assistance can be picked
up at the Suwannee River
Economic Council branch at
104-4 LM Gaines Boulevard in
Starke. There are two programs
that can provide help paying
utility bills, the low-income
assistance program and the
emergency assistance program.

apparently, could have made
a simple request to annex had
the option been extended. (The
proprietor originally wanted
the city to help pay for the cost
of extending sewer lines to the
carwash as well, but later said
he would pay the full cost of the
extension if the city advertised
for bids on the work. Waterlines


already run down that side of
the highway.)
City Attorney Terry Brown
confirmed that everyone
thought the city was just
grabbing the traffic light at the
time of annexation, but it turns
out the legal description written
accomplished much more, and
probably what the city would
have liked to have happened in
the first place.
Itmighthavebeen problematic
at the time-the annexation


appears to have created a
couple of small enclaves of
unincorporated properties
surrounded by incorporated
land-but two years have passed
without objection.
Now it would appear if
Griffis, or anyone else on 301
wishing to annex into the city to
obtain utilities between the light

at the new Wal-Mart simply has
to ask.


Delivering some 'Hope' to the troops


Students at Hope Christian Academy and their families have donated items to
American troops serving overseas, including writing supplies, gum, peanuts and other
snacks, magazines and more. Enough items were donated to send 22 boxes to U.S.
Marines serving'in Afghanistan. (Photo submitted by Angie Davis.)


It Pays to Advertise!

Especially in a slow economy...
According to a McGraw-Hill Research study looking at
600 companies from 1980 to 1985, businesses that chose to
maintain their level of advertising expenditures during the 1980 1982
recession had significantly higher sales after the economy recovered.

Companies that advertised aggressively during the recession had sales
256 percent higher than those that did not continue to advertise.

If you have ever thought to
yourself that you would like to
know more about investments
and would like to learn with
a small group of like-minded
young mothers, retirees, stay-
at-home moms, and just plain
"average" women in a non-
threatening environment, you are
invited to apply for membership
in the Passport Investment Club,
a women's investment club
established over 11 years ago.
The club is currently spear-
heading its annual membership
drive. Members meet on the


third Tuesday each month in
the Melrose/Keystone Heights
area (meeting in members'
homes) and methodically study
potential stock investments
before investing conservatively
in stocks with long-term goals as
the primary focus.
Membership is by application
and new members are asked to
contribute $35 monthly in dues,
$25 of which goes directly to
stock investment, with $10 going
toward club operating expenses.
There is a $100 initiation fee
that defrays the cost of joining the
National Association of Investors
Club (NARC) and costs incurred
by the club.
'This is primarily a learning
organization and new members
are asked to consider this a long-
term commitment.


Consider attending a meeting
in 2009 to see what the club
is all about prior to making a

New priest heeded late calling

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer I1


Linta- Johns was honored March 3 as a Santa Fe
College Woman of Distinction.



Johns honored


as SFC Woman


of Distinction


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Linda Johns of Starke was
one of six honored by Santa Fa
College during its annual.
Women of Distinction
luncheon, which was held
March 3 in Gainesville.
The college, in honor of
Women's History. Month,
selects a group of women each
year to receive its Alachua-
Bradford Women of
Distinction and Woman of
Promise awards. Johns was
honored along with Alachua
County residents Carolyne
Freeman, Peegen Hanrahan,
Veita Jackson-Carter and
Kathie Southwick as a Woman
of Distinction, while this
year's Woman of Promise (age
16-21) is Alachua County
resident Hope Olexa.
"It was an honor to receive
such an award," said Johns,
who is the clerk for the city of
Starke. "I felt like I had won
an Academy Award."
In nominating Johns for the
award, Scott Roberts wrote,
"Her goals have always been
to improve her community."
Johns said she feels it is her.
duty to do so as an elected
official, but added helping
others is something she derives
joy from, even if it's
something as simple as saying,
"Good morning," and giving
someone a smile.
At the Women of
Distinction luncheon, Johns
referred to a quote by Eleanor
Roosevelt: "Since you get
more joy out of giving joy to
others, you should put a good
deal of thought into the
happiness that you are able to
give."
-"'God gives us all talents,"
Johns said. "We need to use
them. We need to help
people."
S:In his nomination letter,
Scott wrote that one of Johns'
greatest passions is her
involvement with. the Shands
Starke Auxiliary. How'great is
that passion? Consider that
Johns has logged more th-ia-
45,000 volunteer hours with
the organization, which raises
money to benefit the hospital
in-various ways.
This week, Johns has been
busy at the Bradford County,
Fair, where the auxiliary
annually sells such items as
hamburgers, chicken
sandwiches and strawberry
shortcake. Johns'said she goes
to the fairgrounds at 7 a.m.
each morning and stays until
approximately 11 a.m. She
returns to her job at city hall,
but is back at the fairgrounds
at 3 p.m. or 4 p.m., staying
until midnight.
:"I guess you'd have to say
my love is my hospital
auxiliary," Johns said.
Jeannie Baker, the
administrator of Shands
Starke, said under Johns'
leadership,. the Shands Starke
Auxiliary has established an
-endowed scholarship at Santa
Fe College, designated more
than $20,000 to support the
hospital's new emergency
department and furnished a
new bereavement room.
Johns has served as the
organization's president more
than once and has been
reelected to the position the


last three years.
"Under Linda's leadership,
the members work throughout
the hospital in support of our -
missidn," Baker wrote in her

chaplain at Shands. Hig mother
told him when he was a boy he
was supposed to be a priest,
but Cowart never felt he was
being led in that direction.
"I was always active in the
church, but never felt a calling
to be a priest," Cowart said
That changed, though, when
Cowart attended a Catholic
men's retreat. That's when he
received God's calling, which
he shared with a group of men
he was sitting at a table with.
"All of a sudden, I looked up
at all the men around the table
and said, 'I'd like for you all to
know that I'm going to be a
priest.' I don't know if they

what," Cowart said, "but after
I was ordained a number of
years later, some of those same
men came to my ordination.
They said, 'Well, you told us
ydu were going to be a
priest.'"
Once Cowart received that
calling at the men's retreat, he
said he had- no doubt
whatsoever that he would go
on to become a priest. Students
at a seminary are told they are
there to discern whether or not
they have really been called by-

said. His only doubt, he said,
was if he could keep up with
his studies.
As he put it, "The Lord

just about Cowart getting
through seminary, but the fact
that his mother was alive to see
him fulfill what she thought
was his destiny.
"My dad lived long enough
to see me in the seminary
before he died," Cowart said.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Just as a caterpillar
transforms into a butterfly,
Maureen Meyerson underwent
her own metamorphosis to
becoming a current teacher at
Santa Fe College and author of
her first children's book, "The
Adventures of Molly the
Monarch Butterfly and
Friends."
Meyerson, who teaches
biology, microbiology and
environmental science, did not
go to college with the intent of
becoming a. teacher. As for
becoming a children's author,
it was one of several goals she
had 'set for herself at one time
in her life, but one .which she
had forgotten.
However, just as nature

Meyerson was destined to
teach and write children's
books. Meyerson, who grew
up on a farm in New York,
remembers how she used to
play the role of a teacher as.a
child who had yet learned how
to read.
"I would use my sisters as

Meyerson, though, grew up
without thoughts of becoming

COWART
Continued from page 1B

looks at it, being in Starke is
pretty much the same as being
in Jacksonville. It's a much
quicker drive than the one
from Gainesville to
Jacksonville, and vice versa,
he made when he was chaplain
at Shands. Sometimes, the
drive between Starke and
Jacksonville is quicker than
driving between two points in
Jacksonville.
"To tell you the truth,
sometimes it takes-you 30
minutes to get from the beach
to downtown if there's any
traffic," Cowart said. "I feel
like I'm almost in a suburb (of
Jacksonville) in many ways."
Besides the short drive,
Cowart also enjoys the people
at St. Edwards and in Starke.
Those who attend St. Edwards
have been very welcoming, he
said, and seem to share his
eagerness in renovating the
church.
'"They seem to be as excited
as.I am-and. was-to get the
place fixed up," Cowart said.
"We still have a second
collection once a month to go
toward our building fund."
Renovations have already
begun. During the time Cowart
has been at the church in his
administrative role, work has
been done on the rectory,.
adding a bedroom and a
bathroom. The "ugly, old"
ramp, as Cowart referred to it,
that was once in front of the
church building has been
moved to the side and is
accessible from the parking
lot.
"It makes it real nice
because people can get out of
their.cars and walk right up the
ramp,'' Cowart said.
The ceilings and walls inside
the church building have been
redone, while new lighting was
installed. Cowart said the
congregation wants to install
.new pews and stained-glass
windows.
"I hope I'm able to stay here
long enough to see everything
completed," Cowart said.
That would be just bne more
highlight Cowart hlas
experienced since becoming a
priest. Another would be the
trip he made to Rome in 2000
to concelebrate mass with
Pope John Paul II. The Pope
invited priests to Rome for his


904-964-8018


80'" birthday on May 18.
Cowart estimated 5,000 priests
attended.
"There were priests there
from all over the world," he
said. "It was very exciting. I
enjoyed it very much."
Another thing Cowart
enjoys, when he's not busy
with his church duties, is
spending time on the water. He
has always lived on the water
in Jacksonville and loves
boating.
"That was one thing I
missed terribly in Gainesville
all the time-the lack of
water," Cowart said.
Still, Cowart is thankful he
had the opportunity to serve as
chaplain at Shands in
Gainesville, though it was a
ministry that kept him busy.
'That's is a 24-hour-a-day
job," he said. "You keep a
beeper on your belt. You can
be called any time of the day
or-night. Not only that, 6bit
you're dealing with sick and
dying people, pretty much, all
the time. After a while, that
can kind of start getting to
you."

Some priests are called to do
such work, Cowart said, but he
definitely thinks every priest
should put in some time doing
hospital work. He said it
allows you to see people in a
different light, which can be
rewarding.
"It's fulfilling to help dying
people come to the Lord,"
Cowart said. "Some of them
have been away from God a
long time-been away from
the church a long time-but
finally realize the end is
coming. Most of them thank
God and have a change of
heart. That's kind of a
beautiful experience for me-
to help people prepare
themselves to meet the Lord."
It's an experience Cowart
would not have had if he had
not been called to be a priest. It
may have happened later in his
life than for most, but Cowart
said that is simply the way
God works.
"God calls us at different
times in our lives to do
different things," he said.
"We're not always called at
the same time to do the same
things."

Today's tough decisions


will lead to better future


As many of you know, the
legislature recently met in a
special session to make
significant cuts to the state's
Budget for the current fiscal
year. This special session was
called as a direct result of the
economic downturn our nation,
our state and our individual
communities have all. been
experiencing. This downturn
led to subsequent cuts to many
programs and it will definitely
shape the policies we
implement, as well as the final
budget we pass during the
upcoming regular session.
It isn't an easy task to
maintain a balanced budget,
which is mandated by our
constitution. When state
revenues are dramatically
down, it requires.either cutting
funding to departments and
programs or raising taxes.
Many of my colleagues and I
felt that.now was not the time
to further burden Florida's
families and businesses with
additional taxes. No single
solution .ill be.able to resolve
the deficit we are facing- this
sirping. However, by making
reducti.ss in spending and
using,.reserve funds, we have
been able 'to steer clear of tax
hikes and also were allowed to
avoid. .majqr reductions to
essential .prgrams.
While we faced $2.5
billion .shortfall for this fiscal


year, next year's shortfall has
the possibility of reaching $5
billion-$6 billion. I think this
makes our decisions and our
approach this year even more
important. By tightening our
collective belts and reducing
spending in non-essential
areas, we will be better
prepared for future shortfalls.
Using tax increases as a
"Band-Aid" for this year will
only delay the inevitable as we
move into the next fiscal year.
Many citizens have voiced
their concerns about the cuts
that have been made to
education. As chair for the
Higher Education Committee
and a father of three sons who
attended public schools, the
education of our children is a
top priority. However, with the
deficit we face, no program or
department can be held
harmless and education is no
different. Considering
education takes up over half of
the budget, sparing education
from cuts would unduly
burden 'the departments that
receive significantly less in
appropriations (health and
human services is second with
just over 25 percent).
We have worked to cut as
little as possible and maintain
funding in areas that are
essential to our youth who are
enrolled- in K-12 classes.

Higher education, as a whole,
will be aided by the American

provide additional funding for
Pell Grants, work-study
programs and higher education
tax credits. While .the total
amount of money allotted for
each program is not fully
known, it will certainly be a
help to those who are looking
to further their education in a
time of economic hardship.

engineering, while holding
jobs with the state and the
United States Department of
AgricuJture Meyerson
pictured herself eventually
working in a laboratory
setting. However, once she
thought about that, she decided
she heeded to do something
more. Teaching seemed to best
fit her personality.
"1 think that the creative side
of me needed expressing," said
Meyerson, who began teaching
at Santa Fe in 2005. "That's
why this field is just a lot of
fun."
As for becoming a children's
author, it was something
Meyerson had given thought to
before. After she had written
her first book, she found an old
-journal of hers in which she
had written 10-ycar goals for
her life. One of those goals
was to write for children.
"I had totally forgotten I had
written that as one of my
goals," she said.
"The Adventures of Molly
the Monarch Butterfly and
Friends" ,was completed last
year, but the genesis of the
story goes back much further.
Meyerson said when she was a
child, her youngest sister
found a wounded monarch
butterfly. Her sister put the
butterfly on the family's porch
and fed it sugar water from a
wetted lollipop. The butterfly
lived for weeks on the family's
porch, taking in sugar from a
lollipop and rehabilitating
itself.
It was an unforgettable
moment for a family that
surrounded itself with. hiiimals.
"It was just one of those
random acts of kindness that
had kind of a ripple effect or
impact on all of us," Meyerson
said. "My whole family was
like that. My father would take
in horses. I've done horse
rescue. We had a farm and had
just about every critter you
could think of on it."
Butterflies, in particular,
though, would be a part of
Me\erson's life agaiin She

rearing center and remembers
discovering a butterfly puppet
on the premises. One day, she
took the puppet, called it
"Molly" and entertained a 4-
year-old visitor, 'with it.
Meyerson later heard from the
child's parents how much the
puppet performance had
affected their child. He was
reciting butterfly facts at
home.
"They wrote this beautiful
letter for taking the time and
teaching him;". Meyerson said.
"It was just kind of a fluke.
From that point on, I just
started doing puppet shows for
(the center) all the time."
What Meyerson found was
that children wanted more of
Molly than what they were
getting from puppet shows.
That's what led to the idea of,
writing books about Molly.
Meyerson has a second book
pretty much written, while' a
third is being mapped out.
Writing the first book came
easily, Meyerson said. That's
because her story relies on
butterfly facts.
"It was so easy because the
story %as already there."-she
' said. "I't was -the lir'fecvele'of

The book includes Molly's
friends, such -as Polly the
Caterpillar and Jean-Claude,
the Migrating French-
Canadian Monarch. Each
character is also a puppet and
part of the shows Meyerson
performs for children.

Ricky Robert Tyson, 48, of
Starke was arrested March 16
by SPD officers for possession
of drug paraphernalia. He was
being held on no hond.


The butterfly has to learn
Spanish because it is migrating
to Mexico.
Each puppet show Meyerson
performs includes a
memorable moment, she said.
For example, at one show she
asked children how a butterfly
smells, meaning how it detects
smells. A child in the
audience, though, walked up to
Meyerson, sniffed the Molly
puppet and replied to the rest
of the children, "She smells
just like a.flower."
During another show she
performed to approximately 42
children, Meyerson had Polly
the Caterpillar saying she was
not as pretty as a butterfly. A
boy jumped up, approached
Meyerson and began stroking
the caterpillar puppet, telling
Polly that she was pretty.
"About that time, all these
other children jumped up,"
Meyerson said. "They were
encouraging the caterpillar,
too. I had.to change the skit
midstream."

the Monarch Butterfly and
Friends," which is credited to
Meyerson under the name of
"Maureen Akey," can be

UNION COUNTY CRUSADE FOR CHRIST




















Curtis L. White, minister Scott Fisher, minister


When: Sunday Tuesday, April 5, 6, & 7
Where: Union County High School Auditorium in Lake Butler
The schedule of events are as follows:
Sunday Musical Concert featuring various groups from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Followed
by Worship from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and Mon. Tues. at 6:30 p.m. nightly

The speaker for this prestigious occasion will be none other than Lawtey's own
Minister Curtis L. White, working along with Minister Scott Fisher of Lake Butler.
My dear friends, today we are living in a religious world of confusion with many
claiming any and everything in the name of God, many people believe that if it
feels right, then it must be right. But, I must say today, that one's feelings are not
the standard that one must follow in order to arrive at the destination of truth,
Because feelings are deceiving.
Little do many know that Jesus said long ago in John 8:31-32 That if ye continue
in My Word, then are ye My Disciples indeed, and ye shall know the truth.
This is an opportunity of a lifetime for all of us to come together of all races and
denominations to study the scripture to see if the things we have been taught are so.
Listen... Christ is not divided and neither is He the author of confusion. So come
one, come all to the Union County Crusade for Christ.
P.S.
Bring your Bible and feel right at home.

Keystone

suffers just

second loss
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Pitcher Jessica Knight did
not give up an earned run, but
the Keystone Heights softball
team lost its second game of
the year by a score of 1-0 to
host Fleming Island March 10.
The game was a scoreless tie
after seven innings, but the
Indians had a chance to change
that in the top of the eight.
They loaded the bases on a
walk and two errors, but were
unable to score.
Fleming Island had a runner
on third in the bottom of the
ninth. An error on an
overthrow to home allowed her
to score and end the game.
Knight gave up just five hits,
striking out eight.
The Indians were' held in
check by Fleming Island as
well, getting just one hit.
Keystone would rebound,
defeating two District 6-3A
opponents by a combined
score of 14-1 and improving
its record to 10-2 (4-0 in
District 6). Knight (9-2) gave
up a total of four hits and
struck out 19 in the two wins.
Five players drove in runs in
an 11-1, six-inning win over
visiting Interlachen March 12,
including Kari Minor, who
was 2-for-4 with three RBI.
Minor drove in two runs in a
seven-run sixth that ended the
game. The inning featured a
double by Tori Jolley and RBI
singles by Ryan Story and
Chandler Singletary.
Story's single put the
Indians up 5-1. Two more runs
scored on an error, while
another scored on a passed
ball. Singletary delivered her
single for a 9-1 lead, followed
by a Minor single that scored
two.
Chelsea Harvin gave the
Indians their first run on an
RBI double in the third, while
Minor and Amanda Wood
drove in 'three runs' with
singles iri the fourth. Wood's
single scored two.
Harvin, like Minor, finished
the game 2-for-4, as did
Cortney Casas.
Knight gave up two hits,
striking out nine.
On March 13, Knight


recorded her third shutout,
giving up two hits and striking
out 10 in the Indians' 3-0 win
over Pierson Taylor in Pierson.
Casas, Story and Becca
Heavrin each had an RBI
single, with Story and
Heavring each going 2-for-3.
Minor had a double for the
Indians' lone extra-base hit.
Keystone played Williston
this past Tuesday and will
participate in-a tournament in
Belleview this weekend. On
Tuesday, March 24, the
Indians host Pierson Taylor at
6:30 p.m.


BHS drops 3

of 4, but no-

hits UCHS
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
it was a tough week for the
Bradford baseball team, which
lost two straight District 3-4A
games by a.combined score of
31-6, but the Tornadoes did
record a win against visiting
Union County March 12,
which included the program's
first no-hitter in some time.
Pitchers Alvin Shireman,
Gary Jones and Charles Jones
pulled the feat off in a 5.-3 win
over the Tigers. Head coach
Lamar Waters said he believed
it was the first no-hitter thrown
by Bradford pitchers min
approximately 10 years.
It was a bad start for Braford


as Union batters drew five
walks in the first inning, which
helped the Tigers go up 3-0.
Gary Jones relieved starter
Shireman to help: the
Tornadoes get out of the
inning. Jones, who forced a
fly-out to end the inning, went
five-and-a-third innings,
striking out three and giving
up one walk.
Tyler Yowell pulled the
Tornadoes within one in the
second inning with a single
that scored Alex Orozco and
Zach Coe. Coe later put
Bradford on top with his own
two-run single in the third.
Yowell scored the last run
on a sacrifice fly by Ryan
McKeown.
Coe and Trey Winkler, who
had a double, each went 2-for-
3. The rest of the team had just
three hits off of Union pitcher
Kris'Bracewell.
Charles Jones earned the
save for Bradford, striking out
two of the three batters he
faced.
The Tornadoes would go on
to drop their next three games,
giving them seven losses in
their last eight games.
Bradford hosted Fort White
March 13 and was up 3-1
entering the fifth. A grand
slam helped put Fort White up
7-3 as the Indians would go on
to win 11-3.
Bradford took a 2-1 after
two innings. McKeown scored
in the first off of a single by
Orozco, while Chris Mejias
scored in the second on a

single by Charles Jones.
Mejias scored Bradford's
third run in the fourth on a
passed ball.
Things got away from the
Tornadoes in the fifth. A hit
batter and three straight singles
led to two Fort White runs. A
walk loaded the bases, setting
the stage for the grand slam.
Walks were an issue in the
Tornadoes' next game, a 15-1
loss to district opponent Baker
County in Glen St. Mary
March 14. Bradford gave up
seven Walks and hit four
batters in the second inning.
For the game, Baker County
had just five hits, but the
Wildcats were able to maintain
their perfect record (10-0, 6-0
in District 3).
McKeown scored Bradford's
only run. He singled in the first
and scored on a double by
Shireman.
Bradford got a home run
from Charles Jones in its next
outing, but it was just one of
five hits for the Tornadoes,
who lost 16-5 to district
opponent Clay March 16 in
'Green Cove Springs.
Clay scored 13 runs in the
first three innings, including
eight in the first, en route to
building an I I-run lead.

picture books,for preschoolers.
Each child, through Reach
Out and Read, starts
kindergarten with a home
library of up to 10 books and a
parent who has heard about the
importance of books and
reading at every doctor's visit.
Additionally, a reading corner
is set up in each facility's
waiting room for volunteers to
read aloud to children while
they are waiting to see their
doctors.
Pediatric providers at
Shands Starke Medical Group
have distributed approximately
4,000 books to local infants,
toddlers and preschoolers since
instituting the program in
September 2007. Nationally,
Reach Out and Read providers
have distributed 5.4 million
books to more than 3.3 million
children and their families
annually in all 50 states,
targeting those centers that
serve children at
socioeconomic risk.
Published studies show that
parents are more likely to read
to their young children and
provide books in the home if
they get bools and literacy
counseling from their
pediatricians. Studies have also
shown that programs such as
Reach Out and Read lead to
improvement in expressive and
receptive language scores of
young children.
Dr. Deborah Weyer, a
pediatrician with Shands
Starke Medical Group, sad
she thinks the program has a
.need in Bradford County based
on the following statistics:
69 percent of Florida
counties had higher FCAT
reading scores in 2005-06 'for
third- and fourth-graders.
The Florida Department of
'Education determined that in
2005-06, 79 percent of Florida
counties were at higher reading
levels than Bradford County
for students in all grades.
In 2005-06, 74.percent of
Bradford County students
graduated high school
compared to approximately 80
percent at the state and
national level.
Only 8 percent of
Bradford County students
graduated from four-year
universities in 2005-06
compared to 22 percent at the
state level and 24 percent at
the national level.
Shands Starke Medical
Group is in need of volunteers
to read to children in the
waiting room. If interested,
please call Weyer at (904)
