The Bradford County School District
wants to emphasize the positive side of
the recent report card schools received,
and the good news is the district had
one A school and four B schools this
year.
The A went Starke Elemeritary. It
was the school's first A ever, and a large
percentage of students there met high
standards in reading, writing and math.
Reading ah~d math gains were high as
well.
The school -was particularly
successful raising learning gains in the
lowest cluartile of students.
Superintendent Beth Moore said she
was proud of Principal Christy Reddish
for really bringing the school team
together. Reddish said it was exciting
news for everyone-- staff, students and
parents.
Carol Clyatt, who is over school
-impro~vement and accountability, said
the district is proud of the i mproveinents
made, and that pride extends to Lawtey

"It's just part of the uniform,

For other board members,

issue of shirt tucking was tied
to the self-esteem of overweight
students and the fact that
some disabled students are
unable to wear shirts tucked in.

key focuses ,of amended water
use rules that Suwannee River
Water Management District is
proposi ng,
The following is a list of some
of the proposed rules:
*Watering restrictions for
lawn` and landscape irrigation-
Homeowners arid businesses
that have an established lawn
and landscape wotild only be
allowed to water once weekly
during the months.of December
Through February, and' twice
weekly duritig the months of
March through No\Iember. In
either case, landscape irrigation
would not be permitted between
the hours of 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
*Conservation for all users-
Users in each type of water use
class would need to implement a
water conservation plan.
Conditions for issuance-
In order to obtain a water use
permit, renewal or modification,
\the proposed use of water ivould
need to meet various conditions,
including the following: the
use would be reasonable and in
the public tnterest;eiti iol e 1
use of water; it would not result
in harm to the resource;and it
would not violate state water
quality standards.
*Inplementatior ofalternative
water supply-~This would allow
district staff to recommend or
require large water users to
implement alternative water
supply when it is fe~asib~le.
Alternative water supplies are
necessary where water sources
are inadequate to meet demands
over the next 20 years.
*Permit duration and five-
year review-This would give
district staff better criteria for
establishing permit duration. It
would also provide a five-year
review of the permit to ensure

Letters to the Editor


Commissioner John W~ayne
Hersey was uncomfortable with
proceeding without knowing
the full cost to the county, but
the board voted 4-1' to allow\ the
chai rman and manager to execute
a contract if the additional
insurance cost combined with the
cost of the sand does not exceed
the price th~e county could get the
sand for from another source,
*,The county attorney briefly
outlined the board's options:
regarding a dispute with Florida
Highway Products, which the
county contracted-with to pave
three roads using the chip seal
process.
The county was unhappy with
the results of work on the initial
road, so County Attorney Terry
Brown said the commission
has three potential options for
resolving the dispute: mutually
agreeing to dissolve the current
contract; paying FHP for the
work to date, after which~ the
contractor would convert the chip
seal road to traditional asphalt at
additional cost; or pay FHP, have
the previous road paved with
asphalt, then allow FHP to pave
the remaining two roads using
asphalt, agaith at additional cost.
These three roads- Northwest
180th Street (Rising Road),
Southwest 161st. Street (Wiley
-Kelly Road) and the remainder
of Northwest 185'h Street (Mark
Lee Starling Road)-were the
final three roads on the current
priority list.
The county.is going to review
the cost of each proposal offered
'by FHP's attorney before
proceeding.

BY MARK J. CRAWYFORD
Telegraph Editor

The county is going to
workshop roadwork priorities
in -the aftermath of rains that
washed many dirt roads or left
them otherwise impassable.
Citizen Jeff Ledger presented
slides that ill'istrated the road
issues in Strawberry Acres
(Northeast 204th Street between
Starke and Lawvtey) and how
even lime rock repeatedly used
to -stabilize the road was just
washing away because ~there
isn't a proper ditch and drainage
system to keep storm water off
the road. ,
..ThrewavterPIialslccumulates on
private property because there is
nowhere else for it to go, Ledger
said. The standing water has
increased mosquito problems.
Strawberry Acres was just one,
of the neighborhoods affected
during recent downpours. Day
after day of rain in May was
especially tough on unpaved
roads~in the county, such as Carter
Road/Northeast, 227" Street,
which is partially inside and
outside the Lawtey City limits
and additionally problematic
because an incomplete sewer
project left the road in disrepair.
Both Ledger and resident John
Bloom of Carter Road, in a letter
to the county manager, argued
that the number of people living
on their roads and the amount of
taxes that cime from those areas
warranted action on the part of
the county commission.
Commissioner Ross Chandler
agreed that population should
play a role in which roads are
determined to be priorities for
paying. According to him, the
county's priority road plan is
flawed because it does niot take
population into consideration.
"There's one thing we need
to really accentuate, and that
is we can't give our residents
everything they want, but we
ought to make a concerted effort
.to give them a good road to travel
on, whether it's dirt, lime rock or
paved,": Chandler said.


Chai rman Doyle Thomas
said as soon as the area was dry
enough. the road department
would be pulling ditches and
performing culvert work in
Strawberry Acres. The county
manager has promised Carter
Road residents that the city and
county would work together on
road maintenance, including
sharing the cost of lime rock to
improve the road.
There were inany impassable
dirt roads in the county during
the rainy weather--so bad that
school buses did not go down
those roads for two days. County
staff worked overtime trying
to repair roads, often fighting a
losing battle because rain would
begin again after roadwork
was completed--and it was
happening all over the county.
County workers and officials also
labored trying to get residents in
and out of their neighborhoods
during the worst of the weather.
Ledger and others have
expressed gratitude for this
assistance.
According to Emergency
Management Director Brian
Johns, rainfall amounts varied
widely around the county..
Eighteen inches were measured
in Theressa in May (7 iliiches so
far in Joine). Starkte was around
8.5 inches in May (5.5 inches so
far this month). In Lawtey the
figure was 12 inches in May (6
inches in June), arid there were
even reports of more than 22
inches in the Keystone Heights
area i n May, Joh ns- said.
The road workshop is
tentatively planned to follow the
board's 9:30 a.m. meeting on
Monday, July 6.
In other business:
*Commissioner Eddie Lewis
at the board's instruction fotmd
a source of sand to fill potholes
from a borrow pit on Rayonier
land as a more affordable
alternative to lime rock. There
were 'questions about the
additional cost of insurance for
county vehicles (Rayonier wants
a higher level of coverage than
the county receives).


movement are, but many are
Democrats and many of us are
liberals, too. Many of usbelong to
third parties or none at all. And,
frankly, quite a large number of
us reject all those labels. We've
started to realize that labels like
'liberal' and 'conservative' don't
describe any reality we. live in
and are only used ini the media to
keep us fighting with each other-
Let's fight together.

Be aware of

Mosquitoes
during summer
Dear Editor:
There is an organization
called BuzzBusters that helps
volunteer w\ith mosquito control
for IFAS Bradford County
Extension office by collecting
adult mosquitoes in light traps
located near certain areas in
zoneS. Mosquitoes collected
so far have been identified as
aedes aeygtii found near tires
and houses, ochlerataus alanticus
and ps~orophora species found
near f~loodivaters and Anopheles
species found near low ci-eeks.
aedes species have been known
to cause fevers, psorophora
are' sometimes carriers of dog
heartworm and, Anopheles
species iri the past are carriers of
malaria.
Further information can be
found at AMCA, FMCA, or
Bradford County Extension
IFAS Web sites on mosquitoes,
diseases, and various IPM ways
to eliminate the mosquitoes. .
The ~mosquito populations
- have increased slightly with
ocherlatusalanticus,aedesvexans
and psorophora and Anopheles
as floodwaters increase due to
heavy rains. A marked decrease
of.aedes albopictus and aedes
aegypti are found in areas treated
with BTI and oil treatments, but
they show a~n increase in~ areas
not treated specially near tires
and containers near houses. .
So please, homeowners, dump
-.allk.containers- of standing -water
~and re'port clogged and, overflow
ditches to the road departrilent.
Empty all pet dishes and bird
baths and trash cans of water at
least once a day. Slosh out water,
in spare tires. Wear Deet at night
or other- insect repellant..' Use
caution if you have a com mercial
mister. Commercial; mosquito


misters can increase resistance of
mosquitoes if applied near water
or cause increase in a different
and more harmful species. Keep
children away from the mosquito
spray truck when it is dispensing
the fog. Enjoy the Florida
sunshine but keep safe, too.

SCity residents
Should say no
to neW taxeS
Dear Editor:
We, city residents, sayl t to
new taxing authority requested
by the city clerk, Linda Johns.
As a resident of the city, it is
easy for me to be an "armchair
referee" without knowing the
monumental task the city must
have trying to make a budget
work in these difficult economic
times.
It is in these difficult times that
our fellow patrons will be tested;
will we pull together somehow or
will we \work against one another
into a downward spiral.
I can certainly imagine that it
must be very frustrating for the
city clerk to be unable to collect
fines from property owners who
are violating city ordinances. I
would ask the city clerk to keep
in mind that property owners are
under increasing pressures from
all sides; for example, a macro
economy that is out of balance;
real estate prices falling, incomes
falling and expenses rising on
just~ about every front. It seems
that everyday 1 go to the grocery
store I see the price of food rising
faster and faster.
One of` the problems
associated with what may seem
to be a~ harmless new ability to
collect taxes i-s that, it can open
loopholes from which the~ city
can take on Draconian powers to
collect money. I see the new bar
the city has that drives around
patrolling with the letters Code
Enforcement written on it. It
looks more like a police car.-
Please,!let's -not -oo the way of
heavy-handed police powers by
the city to co~lle'ct feB.; If budgets
are a problem, then perhaps the
city~needs to find ways of cutting
positions and if necessary find a
remedy of doing away with the
city charter and be absorbed by
the county.

JOin the tea

party July 4
Dear Editor:
Starke is~ going to have a tea
party on July 41, 2009!
The tea party movement is so
much more, and so much less,
than what all the politicians and
media pundits want it to be. Our
system of government and those
who live, in that political world
have drifted so far away from
.America that they are incapable
of recognizing what is really
happening.
It is simply this: a rapidly
growing number of Americans
are fed up. That's it--rothing
more and nothing less.
We're fed up with politicians
whose 'only answer to our
problems is to try to spend our
way out of th~em. We have had
it up to here with politicians
and corporations trying to run
every aspect of out lives for their
benefit.All we ever wanted was to
run our own lives for the benefit
of ourselves and our families.
We're not just fe'd up. We've
woken up. We've realized that
the 'politicians have stopped
spending our money and started
spending our children's money,
our grandchildren's money,
and probably even our great-
grandchildren's money. The
~politicians should have realized
That once we go~t wise to this, we
wouldn't like it one bit. Every
parent wants their child to have
it better than they did.
We invite any and all people
who are also "fed up": to join
the tea party, gathering in front
of the Old Armory on U.S. 301,
across from the Bradford High
School, on the morning of July
4, froni 10:30 a~m. to 12:30
-p.m. What' better wray for you
and your family to celebrate
our Independence Day than to
make your stand for the values
and freedoms we want back.
Also remember that the 'ballot
box' will be our way. to speak
next year and you can only then
speak with your vote. If you are
not yet registered to-votei come
to-the tea party on the2lh Of ju~)y ,
and register for the party of your
choice or as $n independent. We
will have a table set up.for that
purpose. .
By the way, we are not
Republican and we are not
conservative, Sure, many
individuals in the tea party


*If you're a grower it may be
a good idea to put the stand on

of crops growing on location

Road priorities to be examined


Road~side

produce
stands

Offer direct-

marketing

Option fof -
small farms
Jlim DeValerio,
Bradford County agricultural
extension agent
The roadside produce stand is
bne of the best-known options for
small farmers looki ng to sell thei r
wares directly to the publit.
Although the concept is old
ind maybe even quaint, it can be
very effective.; Consumers want
farm-fresh fruits andcvegetables
and many of them are eager to get
a momentary sense of connection
to working farm.
Bradford County, in Northeast
Florida, is one of the state's

Ieor ph c araandnpo umasti of
but our agricultural' community
has a strong tradition.of direct
marketing. Currently we have
10 roadside stands, eight of them
along the busiest thoroughfare
through the county, U.S. 301.
We can take some lessons
from these businesses that
could be useful to small farmers

eli sht you don't have to operate
a roadside stand to sell your crops
at one. Many proprietors are
eager to buy produce from other
local farmers. That's especially
true if you offer specialty items
other local growers don't.
Second, quality is everything,
Often, consumers are attracted
to roadside stands because they
believe they can fi nd fresher items
there than in the supermarket.
So be selective and offer freshly
harvested items,culling out crops
with noticeable defects.
'For those operating roadside
stands, keep these things in
mind:

Pommissio last week
The 'pie~litte will ~provide
natural gas for the generation of
electricity
Dave Cobb, external affairs
manager for FPL for north
Florida, said the company has

bendm e~ becas of it pmi ee
domestic availability and its
cleaner burning properties.
"We're able to build some very
efficient, clean-burning power
plants with it," Cobb said
.Current projects include
rebuilding two 1960s-era power
plants, replacing the oil-fired
plants with combined-cycle
plants that use natural gas.
Their efficiency will allow FPL
to further reduce fuel costs and
environmental impacts, Cobb
said. .
One of the plants is in Palm
Beach County (Riviera Beach),
and the other is Brevard Coutiy
(Cape Canaveral).
Fueling these plants requires
an expansion of FPL's access to
natural gas.
There are two lines serving
FPL. One, the Florida Gas
Transmission line, currently
passes through Brooker. The
Gulf, Stream line comes through
the Gulf and extends to Tampa.
FPL is the major customer served
by both of those lines, and both
lines are at capacity, Cobb said.

"In order to prevent growth
cracks, splitting, disease and
other blemishes that make
produce unacceptable to
consumers, Union County
farmers needed a consistent
supply of moisture as vegetables
matured ."
What Breman said they didn't
need w\as for the heavy rainfalls
'to deliver so much in such
a short period of time. Many
areas- experienced significant
rainfall in excess of 24 inches
in a 10-day period.
"This has been tough on
vegetable growers wvho are
in the harvest stage and have
crops on wet Flatwoods soils
under root stress for oxygen,


reducing the total yield and
quality of the produce:" said
Breman.

The original tow\n of Lake Butler consisted

incorrect story
Swas that Thomas A. Bradford purchased a
40-acre plot of land from the United States in
S1859, land that is known today as the original
boundaries lines of take.Butler.
Driggers said Lake Bu~tler's roots do dt
back' to 1859, making this year the 5t
anniversary of its existence. But the true history
is a bit different from the two tales above.
In 1859, New River County was formed and '
.encompassed wthat is known today as Bradford, ~
SBaker and Union counties. From Tallahassee,
Governor Andrew Jackson sent the first surveyor
: general of Florida, Colonel.Robert Butler, to the
0 area to survey a stretch of land located just
About center of then-New River County to serve
Sas 3he county seat. That land was the original
boundaries of Iatke Butler; comprised of 40
acres spread throughout 25 square city blocks
with the courthouse iti the center. .
SThe first Lake ~Butler post office was opened
Sin 1.860. The Civil War stalled the growth~ and
prosperityy of Lake Butler until 1890, when the
Georgia Southern and Flori~da Railroad crossed .
:!through with a depot in Lake Butler. It was then
That the town grew and was incorporated as a
city in 1893.
The Jacksonville and Southwestern Railroad
n (a later branch of the Aflantic Coast Line)


became a popular resort on the Santa Fe River,
Providence was a stage stopover and, in 1913, a
state prison was established near Raiford.
The town of Lake Butler contained only
dirt roads and trails until 1928, when S.R loo
was paved. Sewer and water lines were first
installed~ between 1928 and 1929.
The street light at Main Street and Lake
Avenue at the courthouse marks the center of
pioneer Lake Butler, dividing the town into
four sections: northwest, northeast, southeast
and southwest. Years ago, the streets were given
family names as opposed to numbered names as
they are today.
Early pioneer settlers in' Lake Butler included
the sir names Prevatt, York, Croft, McKinney,
Dekle and Epperson, to name a few.
Interestingly, Union County has been a part
of six different counties throughout the years:
St. Johns (1821-1822), Duval (1822-1828),
Altichua (1828-18372), Columbia '(1832-1859),
New River(1859-1861), Bradford (1861- 1921);,
before being named Union County (chosen.to
reflect unity) in 1921-

Special to the Monitor
Joseph Cook, 13, rubs the
dirt off two toy soldiers he has
rescued from the soil as he
points to the garden area that
was once a shooting range and
a burn pile.
The Cook family planted
their garden in late April as
a money-saver and learning
experience, said Daniel Cook,
15.
iIn a struggling economy,
gardening is a growing trend
for ni~any families in addition
to the Cooks. According to a
study conducted by the National
Gardening Association, 31
percent ofAmerican households
grew produce in 2008, and 37
percent of households plan
to garden in 2009. This is
a projected increase of seven
mill-ion households planting
fruits, vegetables, herbs .or
berries.
Chrliy Falana, the lawn and
garden. manager at Bryan's
Ace Hardware in Melrose, said
customers are still trying t~o buy
vegetables even though they
should have been in the ground
by May. Vegetable plant sales
have increased 25-50 percent
and seed ~packets are leaving
the shelves fast.
Daniel said his family bought
.tomato and pepper plants at Ace
and grew the rest from seeds.
Their friend Tim Huggins
tilled the 10'x20' plot in their
backyard near Immokalee
Road. They added cow manure


and ashes from their burn pile.
Joseph said he had learned
how to care for many different
plants at once. In -the past he
had only grown sunflowers. He
pointed to the tomato plants
and said his dad taught him to
attach them to stakes t'o keep
them off the ground.
"As far as learning goes it's
been a success," Daniel said,
but they would have saved
mpre if they had planted more.
Joseph said. he would enjoy
eating fresh and saving a- few
bucks. The Cooks don't always
buy fresh green beans and other
vegetables. .
SElizabeth Cook shops for
groceries for her nine children.
She is still adjusting to rising
produce prices. "I've' noticed
what used to be the regular
price is now the sale price,"
she said.
She said her home schooled
children have shown an interest
in gardening and are more
likely~ to eat what they grow.
"If it goes well., and they keep
up the wvork, we'll make~ it a
routine."
SWhen she does `buy
vegetables, Elizabeth, said
she makes a stop at Keystone
Heights Produlce because of its
low prices.
Josil Hernandez and her
husband Tony have run the fruit
and vegetable stand oti S.R.
21 for five years. Josie said
prices haire gone up and blames
the recent hikes on the large


quantities of radin that
havre ruined farmers'
crops.
"It's expensive
and you hardly find
anything oo, he
tomatoes look? They
look like they're no
good. because the rain
makes them yellow."
Josie said she hopes
prices will go down if
the rain is moderate ~
but expects them to
stay the same.
Prices have limited'
what customers put in
their basket, but Josie
said there are other
factors. Customers
with gardens buy less.
If they. grow tomatoes,
yellow squash or
cucumbers at home,
they won't buy them ~~'
from her.
Falana from AC; dr
said growing organic :
produce from a
pesticide-free garden
is ariother allure to
gardeners.Thi healthy
habit is also bringing
back barteri ng. Lettuce
is being swapped for
zucchini.
Falana called
~gardening an investment a'nd
emphasized the importance of
getting the "!dirt.. right". with
,fertilizers\ and compost. "'It's
worth; putting the mones ~into
the.soil," she said.
The first ye~ar. might not yield


Joseph and Daniel Cook tend the family garden.


impressive savings, but she said
an established garden would
lower the total on a food bill.
Right now the Cooks' tomato
branches are weighed down by
unripe spheres. Their zucehint
is Iin yellow bloocm, and the
green ;squash pokes out in


miniature form.
Joseph has plans for the plot
of soil. He said he wants~ to
move the mulch pile that lines
the garden and back fence.Then
.hie will expand the perimeter.
With thie new space, he- said he
~hopes to plant corn.


Joseph and his siblings talk
eagerly about their project.
They take turns watering each
day and walk between the-
horizontal rows to check' on the
vegetation's progress. He said,
'It's fun, especially eating out
of it."


In the United States, there

lightning flashes each year,
Dui-ing! the past 30 years,
,lightening killed an average
of 66 people per year, more
than the average of 65 deathe
per year caused by tornadoes,
Yet because lightning usually
claims only one or two \ victims
at a time and does not cause
mass destruction of property,
it is underrated as a risk. While
Documented lightning injuries in
the United States average about
300 per lear. undocumented
~,injuries are likely much higher.
Thunderstorms are' most
likely to develop on spring
or summer days but can occur
Year round.
Lightning can strike as far as
10 miles from the area where
it is raining. That's about the


Distance you can hear thunder.

If` that time is 310 seconds or

Seek shelter immediately. The

The Our Country Day Committee has
announced Chester E. Moody as the 2009
grand marshal of the July 4th parade.
Ten years prior to moving to Keystone
Heights, Moody served in the Army Corps
(1942-1943) as a radar technician on the
DEW LINE in Canada. This experience
made him know that he belonged in warm
weather ~and Keystone Heights was just the
right place.
Moody and his wife Edwina have been
Keystone Heights.residents since 19.52. .
At that time Moody was working at
Mainside, Naval Air Station in Jacksonville '
as a fireman. He worked there until he retired
in 1960. He helped support the Keystone
Heights Volunteer Fire Department.
Throughout the years, there were many
meals that were not eaten and many nights
when Moody didn't get a full night's sleep-
because whenever the siren went off, he left
to help folks in need.
As a fireman he saw too many children
in distress because they couldn't swim. So
he became a supporter of the YMCA Camp
Immokalee summer swimming program. All
of, his children went from Minnows to
Senior Life Saving in the program. He was
one crafty guy because he used the incentive
of learning how to ski to get kids to learn
how to swim first. He told them that once
they had learned how to swim, he would
teach them how to ski. He taught more than
|200 children to ski and after they learned,
they got to add their name to his Ski Book.
As the lakes began drying up (the second
time) Moody, Edwina arid many others
became activists with the Lake Brooklyn
Civic Association (LBCA).
This organization took on the St. Johns


RiverWater Management District(SJ RWMD)
and the state of Florida, requesting answers
about the absence of water flowing into the
chain of lakes which includes Brooklyn
Lakte, Keystone Lake, and Lake Geneva.
Moody and Rodney Bamford used video
cameras and found that water was being
diverted away fro~m Alligator Creek, which
flows into the chain of lakes.
Everyone was affected by the loss of
water. The LBCA succeeded when Governor
Lawton Chiles ruled in favors of the citizens
of Keystone Heights for maintaining the
lakes.
Many children are recognized for their
good grades but Moody felt that well-rounded
students who aren't necessarily scholars also
need to be recognized. Moody reinitiated the
Golden B Award, which recognizes students
from each grade at Bradford High School for
being outstanding citizens.
Moody raised all three of his children,
Lynda Gatyle, Chester E, and Carolyn Jean,
in Keystone Heighfts. During their school
days there were two classes in one room and
it only went up to the eighth grade. When it
was time for the children to go to high school
they travelled to Green Cove Springs.
Keystone Heights area parents got together
and bought a school bus so the children
could attend Bradford High` School in Starke,
allowing the children more opportunities
~with their _studies, sports and other after
school activities,

The Rev. Robert P. Robert Johnson, pastor of the River of Life Church of God,. was
recognized for his service to the FloridaWorks board and the Better Jobs/Better Wages
Committee, which he wias a member of since September 2005. Johnson called it a
- significant honor and thanked the board for its recognition. He also recognized his
wife and church congregation for their support of his service. Johnson and his wife,
Marian, are pictured above with County Commission Chairman Doyle Thomas and
Commissioner Ross Chandhir, who served on the FloridaWorks board with Johnson.
The board works to improve employment opportunities and income of residents in

which she felt would affect the
airpark's insurance coverage.
Lake accused- Thomas of
taking the matter lightly, since
the Sportsman's Club' had
reigned in the members" dogs,
hunting season was ending and
the Sportsman's Club lease was
up for renewal and renegotiation,
A June 17 letter from Florida
League of Cities underwriter
Byron Beard addressed to Lake
stated, "The insurance expired
when the Authority failed to
provide the insurer .with the
required information prior to the
expiration date of May 28: 2009
... the insurance carrier must have
a copy of the current and active
general liability policy from the
.Keystone Heights Spor'tsmen's
Club. A sigried letter frodm the
Chairman of the Authority
banningg the dogs will not
`suffice per the insurance carrier.
Additionally, the airpark should
have~ proof of current coverage
for all tenants on the premises."
In Lake said, "I made the mistake
of waiting until the day our
Hangarkeeper's policy was due
to' file the policy's survey with the
insurance company. This caused
the policy to lapse. Coupled with
the fact that the airport had a

percent of students made reading
gains and 66 percent made math
gains, including 56 percent of
the lowest 25 percent of students
in reading and 66 percent of the
lowest 25 percent in math.
"A" schools far outnumber
others in Florida, and according
to the state, the number of A and
8 schools together means that
more than three-quarters of the
state's public schools are high
performing.
Statewide, there are 1,822
A schools (62 B schools (17 percent),. 420
.C schools (J14 percent), 173 D
schools (65 percent) and 44 F
schools (1 percent).



Starke Elementary School and
Lawtey Community School also

Cyatt said
It was another first for Atarke
Elementary,, although Lawtey
has achieved AYP in the past.
Required as a part of the
federal .No Child Left Behind
Act, AYP measures schools
Based on a pass-fail sterile arid is
separate from the school grading
system.
To -make- Adequate Yearly
Progress, schools 'must meet
a number ,.of proficiency
benchmarks and achieve them
all. Failing to meet one criterion
means the. school 'does not.
achieve AYP.
The criteria require certain
subgroups of students to. show
progress in reading, math, writing .
and graduation. rate. Those
subgroups include all ethnic
groups, students learning English
and .econom`ibqlly disadvantaged
students.
Here is where the schools not

Districtwide, AYP was .not
achieved because reading and

not met.
According to the state, AYP
~requirements - were raised
significantly this year, and
785 -schools statewide (23
percent) were abile to meet those
requiirementsislightly less thari
the 792 schools (24 percent) that

m~a~rkagaiinst it concerning the
SSportsmen's Club, the insurance
company, has initiated a strong
review of all airport operations."
At last Thursday's meeting,
Lake stated that Weaver had
graciously consented to help- her
fill out the forms, which she then
returned.
The League of Cities
intermediary said he had already
approached other insurers who
declined to offer a quote. Once
the required information was
received, Beard said, he would
approach,.the former: insurer who
was most likely to offer a new
policy.
Thomas said neither Lake
nor a~irpark staff informed him
of any.emergent problems with
the liability 'insurance until last
Thursday.
The K~AA c~itili-nat said he
had tried to contact the insurance
representative during the, day last
Thursday, but-had been told she
was out forthe day.
At the June 18 meeting,
Thomas accused Lake of knowing
the insurance had already lapsed
and choosing~not to notify the
auth~ority. .,
Lake countered that she. had
called airpark staff to have the
item. put on the agenda for the
previous evening's monthly
meeting, but at that meeting
she was surprised to note the
insurance item hadn't been
added. Thomas stated that when


the floor was open for other
topics of discussion, Lake had
said nothing.
Lake insisted that she had
given Thomas and the full panel
adequate notice beforehand
concerning the insurance
requirements and her concerns
had been repeatedly ignored or
bel ittled.
During the meeting, Thomas
sounded optimistic that
something could be worked out
with the insurance company -
within the next few days. Thomas .
has since asked for files of all
correspondence between Lake
and the insurance provider.
On .Friday, Nelson issued
notice of a special city council
meeting, to be held Wednesday,
June '24, as thle Monitor was
going to press.- The subject of
discussion vas tobe the Keystone
'Heights Aii-park and the Airpark
Authority. Shortly thereafter,
she sent out a riotice of Lake's
resignation.
"My decision ~to resign .:
.(is the) result of the hostility
demonstrated by many of the .
tenants and past and current
board members of the Keystone
Airport Authority. Having tried
to create an environment of
integrity and transparency in
government, I am vacating those I
efforts," Lake said.

On the other hand, Hampton
Elementary fell two letter
grades to a C after six years as
an A school. FCAT scores were
noticeably down compared to
prior years, and percentages were
down almost across the board in
both learning gains and students
meeting high standards in the
various subject areas. Math was
a particular struggle.
Southside Elementary, in a
pattern of going up this year and
down the next, fell frott an A
back down to a B. ~While a large
percentage met high standards,
particularly 'in' reading, writing
and matly, a much lower
percentage of the bottom 25
percent of students made learning
.gains.
Brooker Elementary dropped
from an A to a B this' year.
Though percentages were up for
students meeting high standards
in writing, and particularly
in scieince,a tey wereando n
percentage making learn g
gains was also down.
Bradford High School fell
from a C back to a D, another
continuing: a pattern of being
up one year and dowun the next.
The, school especially struggles
with reading,. with only 29
percent meeting high standards
in reading and only 36 percent
making reading gains.
While -it *was the district's
lowest performing school, Clyatt
said there was concern ~statewide
over the performance of high
schools.- Although '120 high
sooshad A's last year, that
drippe~d by almost half this yeai._
"Our teachers worked
diligently this .year but did not
receive positive results," Clyatt
said.,That was disappointing and
unexpected, shesaid..
"We wills spend many hours
planning and working with the
school to see what changes need
to. occur in thie 09-10 school
year."
It appears many others around
the state, will 'have; to do the
same.
SAlthough.there were, decrl ine,
in performatice .(the district had
3 A's. last year arid .no grades
lower than a C), Cly~att doesn't
want that to deflate spirits or
overshadow gains that were made
th'is year. She said that while
there .were setbacks, teachers and
administrators: will see this as .a
challenge to bring scores up next
year.

Overall, the district~ grade

BY JAMES WILLIAMS
M2~onitor Editor
The Gainesville office of the
Department of Children and
Families reports that Bradford,
Clay and Putnam Counties
have differing levels of child
abuse. *
Over the long term and
statewide, approximately half
of all reports called in actually
identify a child who has indeed
been maltreated or neglected.
DCF staff member Becky
Dobbins O'Brien, confirmed
thdt child abuse figures can
vary significantly from county
to county~.
"For example," she said,
"lots of abused siblings in
many families can make
numbers go up.
She also observed that calls
to the Hotline may rise as a
result of inservice or staff
education at schools, day care
centers and law enforcement
agencies. ,
Dobbins said calls can also
increase in response to widely
publicized cases of child abuse
or neglect.
In 2007-2008, the last years
for which information had
been ~'compiled, Bradford
County received and
investigated 578 reports on
some type of child
maltreatment. Of those cases,
260 children, or ~45 percent of
reported cases, were identified
as victims of some type of
child abuse.
To put the numbers in
perspective, at least .90 percent
of Bradford's total population,
almost, I percent, is likely to be
an abused child. ., The real
percentage could be higher,
since not all cases of actual
child abuse 'are likely to be
reported. :
Based on state data, the
Gainesville DCF office said
Clay County conducted 3,009
iml~estigations and found that
1,772 children were victims of
mal~gtreatment, or about .96
percent of the county's total
population.
Putnam conducted. 1,818
investigations based- on
.allegations of maltreatment.
DCF said 762 children or 1.04
percent of, the Putnam
County's total :population,
were identified as victims of
abuse.
In Union Coudity, 279
children ivere named in
investigations and ~129
children, 46 percent of
allegations and slightly less-
'than 1.5 percent of Union's
total non-incarcerated
population, were identified as
victims of abuse.
Of the' three: counties, Clay
had the highest likelihood of
an allegation of child abuse
being confirmed, followed by
Union,~ Bra'dford and then
Putnam County.
However, Union had a
higher rate of child abuse per
capital in its population,

G~ann saidl the first time a rider
crushes is scar\ because you
don 1l know\\ whatr to expect..
Holiccir Ga~nn1 saidi hie has
gallen used to the crashes.
They~ are a pa:rtl of` the sport.
"The b~elttr \ou are, the less
you crash, of course," Gann
said,, "but the faster you wvant
to go. the more chances you
take w\ith crashing, too."
The crash. in Tennessee did
niothing to damper Gann's
enthusiasm for racing, though
it did worry his parents. They
usually attend his races, but
wvere not there in Tennessee.
Upon hearing about the crash
and resulting injury, they
drove 11 hours to be with their
son .
"By the time they; got there,
I wvas already out of surgery,"
Gann said. "They were both
,nervous, but they're behind
me. They said if I wanted to
race, that's what I would do."
Indeed, that's what he did
after receiving medical
clearance to do so. Now, Gann
has fulfilled a dream--to race
professionally. He has studied
the moves of professional
drivers such as Ricky
Carmichael, Chad Reed and
James Stewart on television,
but to actually compete against
such drivers? Gann said he is
sure it will be intimidating at
first. .
"I'm sure it will be nerve-
wracking just like the first day
I started riding," he said.
"You're racing some of the top
guys in the world---40 of the
fastest riders..You're trying to
compete ~against them.
"It will also be fun. It will be
worth it. It's what you strive
for."
Gann said one of his goals
now is to compete in the
Supercross .Series, which~ has
races in Jacksonville, Daytona
and Atlanta. The overriding
goal, though, is to keep racing
as long as he can.
"I don't ever plan on
stopping any time soon," Gann
said. "I~have so much~fun at
it."


You:ar'e beginning to see
that any man to whom
you can do favour is your
friend, and that you can

in yourself," he said. "You''e
got to know you know what to
do when something happens.
You've just got to be ready."
Gann appeared to be ready
for the sport when he first took
part in it. He always rode 4--
wheelers and go-karts growing
up, he said, but motocross w\as
actually part of his blood. His
father used to race, thougly his
involvement was more for' full
than anything else, Gann said.
Gann and his father began
attending races as spectators,
with Gann eventually telling
his dad he wanted to race
himself.
"Ever since then, we've
been non-stop with it," Gann
said. .
Gann uses the personal
pronoun "we" when:describing
his involvement with the sport
because one, it speaks to his
family's support, and two, his
father is also his mechanic.
"He helps me" with
everything I need," Gann ~said.
"He helps me- I10 percent."
It has been a great
partnership, Gann said,
because his father is helpful
with advice, such as where he
needs to pick his speed ~up on
certain sections of the course.
Also, Gann trusts his father
as mechanic because, as he
said, "You've got to have a
dependable bike to race all
these races."
That's why maintenance of
the bike occurs daily. Gann
said a couple of hours each day
are devoted to it.
"Jumping through the air,
you don't want to have a bike
fall apart on you," he said.
Taking a course's jumps
were certainly nerve-wracking
when he first began racing,
Gann said. Until one does it,
he .said, you don't realize how
high you go ~and how far you
go.
Figuring out the jumps at
each trick is one of the hardest
parts of the sport, Gann said,
though he said how one comes
out of the starting gate is
probably the most important
part of the race.
"The better the start you get,
the easier it is to get up to the
front of the pack," he said. e
Then there are the crashes.


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Sta~ff Writer
Shawvn Gann does a lot of
traveling,' but the time he
spends cooped up in a vehicle
to reach his destination is easy
on his body compared to what
he does when he gets there.
Gann, a Keystone Heights
resident and 2005 Keystone
Heights High School graduate,
puts his body through quite a
strenuous workout almost on a
weekly basis, maneuvering his
1l~onda CRF450 motorcycle
through turns and maintaining
control of the bike while
airborne. He is a motocross
racer who just recently attained
professional status after a win
'at Sunset Ridge MX in
Walnut, Ill.
By achieving professional
status, Gann, who works at
Carbon Fiber Works in Starke
and attend's Santa Fe College,
will -have completed a seven-
year climb from the bottom to
put himself in position to "race
with the fastest guys in the
world." It is something the-son
of Phil and Robyn Gann of
Keystone has been striving for,
but he will tell you he is
fortunate to have. the
opportunity. A crash last year
almost put an end to that.
Gann was racing in a
practice round at Muddy Creek
Raceway in Blountville, Tenn.,
last June. As he described it,
he went up the face of a jump,
with the front end of his bike
knifing ~hard. The result was he
went over the handlebars and
dove head first into the ground,
crushing his C7 vertebra.
"I actually- got up and rode
the rest of the lap," Gann said.
"My neck was tingling. I knew
I had jarred something or done
something. When I got back to
trailer, I took my helmet off. I
itouldn't hold my head up. My
head just fell to my shoulder."
Gann underwent stirgery that
involved the insertion of plates
and screws, followed by a
three-month absence from the
sport. It was a frustrating time
for Gann.
"I was in a halo, of course,"
he sai$. "I couldn't do
anything. They wouldn't let
me lift a gallon of milk o~r
anything. I wanted to at least

get back in the gym and train."
Gann said the fact he was
wearing a Leatt Brace was
instrumental in the injury not
being more serious, but he said
his work at S84J Fitness Center
in Starke played a huge role~as
well. He works out at least two
hours a day at S&J and gives a
lot of credit to owner Shawn
Jenkins for designing a
training routine that has -
enabled him to be successful in
motocross .
"Shawvn definitely knows his
stuff," Gann said.
Physical fitness is a big part
of motocross. A rider is
traveling as fast as he can over
rough terrain on, a bike that
weighs more than 200 pounds.
Gann said it is important to
gain muscle to be able to
control the bike in the air,
especially, while
cardiovascular' health is key, .
too. Some races he participates
in last` approximately 20
minutes, but some~ of the
bigger ones he's been
competing in to eaf~n pro points
go for 30 minutes. -
"If ~you can't, go for the
whole moto as fast as you can
go, .then you're definitely
going to fall back," Giann said.
"You Want to definitely be
physically fit,"
The demands of the sport are
.more than physical, however.
Gann said one has to be
mentally tough as well.
"You've got to be confident

makes. Well, how can we

someone with 22 years of

The school board members
need to remember one thing:
They are there because we
voted them in there and we can
vote them out. It is a shame
that our~ schools have come

I already know who they are

she is politically connected,
she will be hired, without any
thought to our children, and
how will this affect them?

a call to action. When it is a

especially upsetting and

should be. The Department of
Children and Far~ilies reviews
all the circumstances
surrounding any child's death

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
1- hambmurgers, \v'e eat the tasty
treats without giving thought
to ivinning some ty~pe of
aw\ard. It's just a common
occurretice-the act of eating
something.
Things w\e take for granted,
though, take on greater
meaniing for people with
disabilities. That is why
someone like Chris Balance
can proudly w\alk before a
crowd of his peers and accept a
certificate naming him as the
"Biggest Hamburger Fan" with
gratitude.
Balance and the other
consumers of the ARC of
Bradford County were
recognized for their talents,
personality traits and hobbies
during "Purple Day" on June
5. Purple Day is an annual
event' where ARC staff
members show their
appreciation for the consumers
and what they bring to the
ARC and to their everyday
lives,
Sherry .Ruszkowski, the
executive director of the ARC
of Bradford County, said every
consumer receives a certificate
that day, whether it's for
"Cutest Baby Face," "Best
Movie Watcher" or ."Best
Mountain Dew Drlis~ik. It is a
moment of pride for the
consumers. Ruszkowski
remembered one year in which
a consumer showed up at the
'facility with a frame in which
to place the certificate he was
going to receive that day. .
"They' re very, very proud of
them," Ruszkowsks said.
Purple Day is filled with
games and various contests-
Bernestine Scott and Scott
Woolever, for example,


Lee proclaiming


showed off some rather
impressive moves as they took
top honors in the dance
contest. Outside the facility, in
between the in~termittent
rainfall, consumers tackled the
water slide and took turns at
the dunking booth-
A special person showed up
to spend a little time inside the
dunking booth--WEA'G
personality Chuck Kramer.
Kramer is an ARC of Bradford
County board member and,
Ruszkowski said, no stranger
to the ARC facility. Kramer
visits the consumers and
participates in various events
such as the board's annual
banquet and the ARC's Cow-
Patty Bingo fundraiser.
See PURPLE, p. 12B


WEAG's Chuck
Kramer
volunteered to
sit in the
dunking booth
and ARC
consumers
lined up with
great
anticipation in
an attempt to
get him wet.

PURPLE
Continued from page 6B

Kramer's ti me in the
dunking booth~ brought a long
line of people willing to try
their shot at get-tingo him \\vet.
"Chuck Kramer is an all,,
ti me favori te here,
Ruszkowvski said. "They all
know\ him. They all love him."
Purple Day began
approximately 10 years ago
when an operator of one of the
group homes suggested having
some kind of annual
recognition for ARC
consumers.
"They chose the color purple
because it is a royal color,"
'Ruszkowski said. "For that one
day, they are treated like
Royalty ."


The rain did not
dampen the
desire to enjoy
Some wet
activities, such
as plunging
down a water
slide. Michael
Deyot (right)
creates quite
the splash.
