Bradford County freezes tax rate


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


Bradford Count\ Commissioners
voted to leave the property tax rate
alone at their meeting last week.
The tentative millage rate approved
for 2009-10 was 9.1769 mills, the same
as the current Near.
Unlike in recent \ears when local
governments were restricted bs the
Legislature with regard to raising the
local tax rate, there were no limits or
consequences tied to raising property
taxes this year. E'en with that being
the case, the proposed budget presented
to the county commission b\ Count\
Clerk Ray Norman was based on the
existing millage rate and not a fraction
of a mill more.
Commissioner .Ross Chandler said
'the best thing the board could do for


taxpayers in these economic times is
not to raise the tax rate.
"We'll find a wa\ to live within the
means of this budget." Chandler said.
the other commissioners agreed.
By setting a tentative millage, the
board has capped its ability to raise
additional revenue by raising the tax
rate. While the board cannot raise the
tax rate as the budgeting process begins,
it could still choose to lower the rate.
One mill will be worth $856,536
in thq coming .budget. Total village
is expected to bring in $7.86 million,
including $5.9 million for the general
fund and $1.71 million for fines and
forfeitures, plus much smaller amounts
for emergency medical services and the
health department.
That's slightly more than a mill was
worth in 2008-09. This year's one-mill
levy was worth $852,480, bringing the
total 9.1769-mill levy to $7.82 million.


'.The proposed budget is nearly $34.1
million, but has a revenue deficit of
nearly $978,000. The board's general
fund is short almost $325,000, and
the road department is short around
$653,000.
All other departments are balanced.
including the sheriff's office, which has
a proposed $5.29 million budget for
2009-10, up slightly from this year.
Overall,the proposed budget is higher
than the nearly $32.3 million budgeted'
this year.
A raise for employees, usually 3
percent, is not included in the proposed
budget, however, and Norman said no
new agency requests have been added.
No new money was allocated for the fire
departments,and less spending has been
proposed for the county commission,
clerk's office, building and zoning, and

Starke company goes solar


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

For many years, people have discussed
the sun as an alternative source of power to
generate electricity, but only now, it seems,
are businesses and even homeowners
seeing solar power as a viable option.
One reason is the financial incentives
governments are providing for those who.
convert to safer, nonpolluting forms of
renewable energy.
One business making use of those
incentives and the cost savings afforded
by solar energy is Ambient Air Services
Inc., an environmental consulting firm
whose headquarters has been located in
the Starke industrial park since around
1993.
The company specializes in air
emissions services for industries and has
clients throughout the nation.
The project to move from traditional
to solar power for their 10,000 square
foot corporate headquarters should be
operational by today.
"For over 30 years, AASI has
incorporated leading technology and
engineering into our business. Solar
power is an innovative and responsible
way for us to be good corporate partners
not only within Bradford County and'
Florida buit nationally as well. When we
turn the switch on- we will become the
largest power generator in Starke," said
Joseph Cooksey, the company's president
and CEO.
When the project is completed, Ambient
Air expects to produce approximately 110
percent of their electric needs, and they
have been working with the city of Starke'
to lead the way for others to recognize the
power of solar.

are on Wednesday 8:30 a.m.-


Many who convert to solar produce
electricity beyond their needs, and this
provides the opportunity sell that surplus
power to power companies.
The city of Starke has just put in place
a state-mandated net metering policy
whereby customers can sell their excess
power to the city. The city's power
provider, the Florida' Municipal Power
Agency, will pay the city a renewable
generation credit rate, currently set at 7
cents per kilowatt-hour, but variable each
quarter. At the end of 12 months, the city-
will cut a check to the generator for the
amount accumulated.
Not only will the company be receiving
something for the electricity it sells on
the grid, Ambient Air expects its average
$750 a month electric bill from the city
to disappear, according to Michelle Walls,
the company's office manager.
Ambient Air is just one of many entities
taking advantage of incentives that lower
the cost of installing solar power in
homes and businesses. These incentives
come in the form of rebates,. tax credits,
below-market rate loans, deductions and
exemptions.
For example, the state of Florida offers
rebates of up to $20,000 for the installation
of a residential solar photovoltaic system
and up to $100,000 for a commercial
installation. (More information can be
found at www.dep.state.fl.us/energy/
ehergyact/solar.htm.)
And Walls said the federal government
offers a 30 percent tax credit for investing
in the installation of a solar power system.
(More information can be found at www.
energy.gov/additionaltaxbreaks.htm.)
With incentives like this, plus lower
or nonexistent electric bills, a solar
photovoltaic system can pay for itself.

A Tribute to Bruce Scott

Never a man had a better friend than Bruce
Scott. You could ride the river with him. What
you saw, is what you got. I can't remember a
time we disagreed on major issues. He was a
True Deacon, True Friend. Someone has said
you can count your friends on one hand, I just
lost a finger.
He will be greatly missed.


"I Am There"


Where you are, I have been,
I was once lost in sin.
If you think of the hereafter,
Call on Him less you err.


I am there;,


This world is full of friend or foe,
Some for good, some of woe.
Heaven is real, this blissful place,
Accept the Son, full of grace.

Pure Energy Solar of
Gainesville installed the
system at Ambient Air. Solar
panels can be installed free
standing on the ground or
attached to the building they
serve. Crew leader Jason
Irwin said the 25 kW system
at Ambient Air consisted of
more than 150 panels on the
roof. Direct current from the
panels travels to the inverters,
which converts the current
to alternating current, the
form in which electricity
is 'delivered to homes and
businesses, he said.

While expensive, the panels
have a 25-year warranty and can last
twice as long, according to Irwin.
Most systems are tied into the grid
so owners can take advantage of
net metering. While the renewable
generation credit rate is much less than
the retail rate for a business in the city
of Starke, which is around 16 cents
per kWh (the commercial rate plus the,
current fuel adjustment), the city could
not afford to pay above what FMPA is
providing as the renewable generation
credit.
The city will, however, have more
information available on how business
can take advantage of this program.
Not all solar systems have to be tied
into .the grid to sell back power, of
course. There are stand-alone systems
that store excess power in batteries for
times when conditions are not ideal
for solar energy production. There are
also blended systems that incorporate
batteries as well as grid tie-ins.


that fee was paid in advance
with your honorable service.
Each veterans service officer is a
public servant, employed by the
taxpayers to assist and represent
the interests of veterans and their
beneficiaries.
Learn more about visiting
www.va.gov or call your local
veterans service officer. Most
benefits may be applied 'for
online. If you need information,
clarification or assistance, make
a visit to your veterans service
office.

More than 150 of these photovoltaic
panels were installed on the roof of
Ambient Air Services Inc. to provide
the company's electric needs and
surpluspower to sell back to the city.

Editorial/Opinion


Out of touch with reality


Our local teacher's union has lost touch
with reality. Recently, we reported that
our local school board agreed to do what
amounts to a tax swap to make money
available to give our teacher's a bonus.
The bonus plan was rejected by the
union negotiators without even asking the
teachers they represent to vote on it. The
union's statement was that they weren't
persuaded that our local school system
was suffering through a state of financial
urgency. Really?
Last year alone, our local school district
lost $1.8 million in funding. Additional
losses in the coming year are a certainty.
Are the union negotiators blind?
We're the first, to argue that teacher's
should be paid more. No one really


disagrees with that. But in time of tough
financial crunches, when you know .the
state is going to be cutting even more, it's
not the time to be asking for more. And it's
not the time for the union representatives
to be sticking their, heads in the sand.
The superintendent and school board
should be applauded for being willing
and able to offer any additional pay for
our teachers. And even more so when
you consider that they have avoided the
mass layoffs everyone feared. It shows
that their priorities are in the right place. To
have a union representative, outright reject
the offer and not even allow the' teachers
an opportunity to vote on it is downright
wrong.


No one really knows what lies ahead in
our economic futures. We do know that
Bradford County has been spared some of
the more severe economic woes that many
are suffering. We aren't entirely exempt
though, and for many here, the economy is
and has been taking its toll.
In Washington, there have always been
.two economic trains of thought. One is to
have the federal government borrow and
spend billions of dollars to "stimulate" the
economy. The other is to cut taxes, put more
money in the pockets-of taxpayers, and let
individuals "stimulate" the economy when
they spend their tax savings. We probably.
won't ever see it out of Washington, but the
best answer is probably somewhere in the
middle.
We are under no illusion that Washington
will get it right. Long lost is the time
when Washington did what was right for
the individuals that make up this great
country.
But that is not the case for local
government. Locally, it's time for our county
and city government to step up and do what
is right for our local citizens. Our county.
property appraiser missed that opportunity
-when ,recently. he certified the value of
the property in Bradford County. Contrary
to reality, he actually said that Bradford
County property values increased last year..
If you ask any of the local governments
around us, any real estate professional, 'or
any mortgage lender, they'd all tell you the
'values of our property have decreased-

substantially.
This writer has experienced it first hand.
In 2007, a house for sale was appraised at
$105,000. Recently, that exact same house
came up for sale again. The appraisal
in 2009: $63,000.; That's a 40 percent
decrease in value in'only two years.

We hope the county and city
governments don't turn a blind eye and
deaf ear to what is happening as well.. No
other entities in our county have as much
power to stimulate our local economy as
do our local governments-by substantially,
reducing the millage rates we pay on our
properties. A 10 to 15 percent reduction in
your property tax bill will put cash into your
pocket. You'll spend that cash (we hope
locally) and if the economists have it right,
every dollar you spend will turn over five 'to
seven times.
In a nutshell, a $1 million dollar property
tax savings will provide up to a $7 million
boost to our local economy.
So we challenge our commissioners to
reduce the millage rate levied on property
taxes. It won't be easy. It will mean taking a
hard look at the monies collected and how
they are spent .tt nay1 mean postponing
somre -projects, or--even "asin;grpxq;p;
reserves to balance this year's budget.
But it's the right thing to do for our local
economy, 'and it's the' right thing to do for
our people that are suffering through this
very difficult economic time.

recommends

replacement

while overseas

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Among the guardmtl.nci of the 631"
Maintenance Comipany mobilizing
for deployment is Starke City
Commissioner Danny Nugent.
Tuesday night, he recommended
his wife,'Melissa, be allowed to serve
in his place as the representative of
city District I.
Mayor Wilbur Waters said
he agreed with the request and
allowing it would mean a full board
seated with representation from all
districts.
"On the other hand," he joked,
"we might like her better than you."
Nugedt praises his wife's
experience in finance and as a
certified appraiser.
Florida Statute allows the
commission to appoint someone
to fill the seat of an active military
member whose service extends
beyond 60 days until the elected
official returns or until the official
term in office has expired, whichever'
comes first.
Nugent's active duty begins
July 24, making his replacement''
appointment would be official
toward the end of September.
A majority of commissioners
voted to approve the appointment,
with the exception of Commissioner
Carolyn Spooner, who wanted input
from the district on who should


serve.
Nugent thanked everyone
had shown support in the lead-
his deployment.
Only one race in


who
-up to


Starke 'election
Of the offices up for election in
the city .of..Starke this year, only one
race-materialized.
District 4 Commissioner Tommy
Chastain is being challenged for his
seat by Jimmy Epps, former city
police chief.
Spooner, who represents District
2, City Clerk Linda Johns and Police
Chief Jeff Johnson were the only
qualifiers for their respective offices.
According to Johns, this means there
will only be one race on the ballot.
District 4 voters will go to the
polls Tuesday, Sept. 1. The election
will take place at city hall from 7
a.m. to 7 p.m., with early voting to
be announced.

Spotlight on business


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Just like many recent high
school graduates, Tom Smith
of Coldwell Banker, Smith &
Smith Realty of Starke had not
always known what he wanted
to be when he grew up.
After graduating from
Bradford High School in 1961,
he set out for a college degree
in business.
Smith is better known by his
nickname, "Tombo," although
he cannot recall how the name
came about.
"I can't remember how it got
started, but that's what they
called me, even in newspaper
articles," he'said.
In 1960, "Tombo" was a
running back on the undefeated
BHS football team. "Back
then, we didn't have state
championships, just the regular
season games and, if you were
good enough, a bowl game."
He and his teammates were
members of the very first
undefeated football- team. in
BHS history. Smith was also
a member of the 1961 state
championship school track
team.
After high school, Smith
attended the University of
Georgia, where he worked
toward his business degree
before focusing on a major in
real estate. It was here that ,
he met Ingrid, his wife of 46


years.

company with 180 subsidiaries
made up of banking, mortgage

The Charter Company was a
Fortune 500 company in its
heyday.
"Real estate in Miami was
booming then," Smith said,
prompting him to eventually go
out on his own w'th Creative

Gables.
Business was good until
1987, when life down south
began to change radically

decided it was time to relocate
his family back to Starke.
By this time, the Smiths
had two children: Brad Smith,
a 'captain with the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office, and
Richard Smith, a Port Orange
real estate developer.
Ingrid began working for the
Bradford County Development
Authority and Tom went
into the residential appraisal
business.
After a couple of years,
Ingrid obtained her real estate
license and began working for
Roberts Realty. It was then that
a wonderful opportunity came
about: the Smiths were able
to buy the Coldwell Banker
franchise in 1994, where they
continue to handle real estate
listings in both Bradford and
Union counties as well as the


Smith said that all starting
agents must first put their
license under a real. estate
broker for at least two years
before deciding if they want to
branch out on their own as a
licensed real estate broker.
Agents work on a commission
only basis, generally splitting
that 50/50 with the established
broker, who carries the weight
of the established business and
years of experience.
"Becoming an agent is a
perfect job for someone who
doesn't need regular hours and
can remain flexible with their
time," said Smith.
Agents can make good
money, and s6me even consider
it as a part-time extra income
job while they work a full-time
job on weekdays.
To become a licensed broker
requires an additional 72
classroom hours of specific
Florida real estate courses.
The Coldwell Banker
franchise has been a successful
part of Bradford County,
although Smith admits that in
a constantly changing market,
real estate sales aren't always
steady.
"There are lots of hills
and valleys in real estate, and
someone thinking about a
career in real estate must be
disciplined in the trade and have
good money sense, knowing
how to budget themselves,"
said Smith.


Kingsley Lake area.
"That first year, we were in
a builUing behind Dr. Leonard
Sihlofman's optometry office,"
said Tom. "We needed a more
visible location as well as niore
office space." They found
just what was needed at their
present office location on Call
Street in Starke.
"I'm glad we made the move
back home, as it has worked'out
real good for us," said Tom.
He remains a big supporter
of the BHS football program
and has served on the board at
Communities in Schools (CIS)
since its inception 10 years
ago.
CIS is a national program that
has served as a very successful
grant writing entity pursuing
private grants to fund programs


for Bradford County schools,
such as providing mentoring
and tutoring for the county's
youth.
Smith has also been heavily
involved in the Northeast
Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce, serving as the board
treasurer, and, at one time, as
the chamber president. Ingrid
was a big part of the Starke
Kiwanis Club for a number of
years.
When first becoming
involved in real estate sales,
one must become a licensed
real estate agent.
"I recommend attending
school at the Real Estate
Institute in Orange Park,"
said. Tom. "The classes are
intense and rather difficult as
they prepare you for the state
exam."


UC school board will set new rates July 28 MORE:'
Continued fromlp. 7A


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
7Times Staff Writer
The Union County School
Board is preparing tax rates
for the 2009-201Q fiscal year.
'The first budget hearing will
take place on Tuesday, July
28, at 6 p.m. in the district
office board meeting room.
Union County School
District Finance DirectorMike
Shockley said that legislation
has revised the capital outlay
millage rate downward for the


second year in a row.
."It went from 1.75 to
1.50 mills," -said Shockley.
"Legislation also approved
a new millage rate of .250
which can be used for either
capital expenses or operational
expenses, known as the critical
needs millage rate."
If the school board votes to
approve this rate, it must be
approved by a super majority
which means four of the five
board members must vote in
favor.
"It is just a matter of


reducing one millage rate by
.250 and increasing another
rate by the same. amount,"
said Shockley. ,
The district will use the
funding for its operational
expenses.. Shockley said he
also feels that it is in the
best interest of the district to
approve the new millage rate.
"The state's economic
condition is showing little, if
any, improvement," he said.
"We anticipate another budget
cut in the near future due to
revenue forecasts, which have


been- lower than anticipated
for the last eight quarters."
Superintendent. Carlton
Faulk said it is the right
decision to approve the rate'
for a number of reasons.
First, he said, the federal
government has provided
funding for two years and
then it is gone. Secondly, the
critical needs millage ivill
provide additional state funds
to help replace some of the
$3 million reduction to the
district's budget for the new
fiscal year.

'Nobody uses
those multiuse
pathways?'

BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
It wasn't more than 10
minutes after two Lake Region
pathways had officially opened
that. local curmudgeons
declared them a useless waste
of taxpayers' money.-
The Rails to Trails DOT
project along S.R. 100 was
listed at $1.3 million and
extends from the Putnam
County to the Bradford County
-line, a distance of 5.2 miles.
The second 5.5-mile path
from Keystone Heights to-
Gold Head Branch State Park
runs along S.R. 21 to Gold
Head. That multiuse pathway
cost $1.4 million and was
funded by a U.S. Department
of Transportation grant. The
trail to .Gold Head is about six
miles, 12 miles round trip.
"Nobody uses those trails,"
the curmudgeons said:.
Nobody?
It's true, back in January
when the second bike and
walking path first opened, the
pathways weren't getting many
takers. Temperatures were in
the 20s during the mornings
and in the 40s and 50s in the
late afternoons.
By March, it had warmed
up a bit as Glen and Mabel
Kirschner and their dog Mindy
took a ride along the multiuse
pathway.
The Kirschners are from
Pennsylvania and were camping
at Gold Head Branch State
Park. While local residents still
found the weather a little chilly,
the Pennsylvanians were in.
shirtsleeves.as they rode their
bikes along the trail for the first
time.
"We love it," they said, even
if they had to ride uphill all
the way back. They camped
at Keystone Heights the year
before, and were happy to
see the new trail had been
finished.
Keystone Heights residents
Billy and Wanda Jackson were
also riding the trail back in the
spring... -
"It wds great" Billy saidF
looking at his bike's odometer.'
"12.07 miles." The Jacksons
had ridden all the way out to
Gold Head Branch State Park
and back.
Billy,a contractor, specializes

College for Kids: a blend of education and fun


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Marina Minx sounds like a
typical college student when
:she says it is sometimes tiring
-walkling from building to
:building on campus to attend
*her different classes, but she
said. some people have a
:tendency to look at her like she
:is insane when she talks of
'having to go to college.
People can be forgiven if
they are a tad confused when
Minx,a child of small stature,
talks of going to college. Minx
is preparing to enter the sixth
grade, but she is already
getting a taste of what college,
is like as a participant in Santa
Fe College's annual College
for Kids program.
College for Kids, which has
been offered in Starke for the
past seven years, is a two-week

program for children who are
rising sixth-, seventh-, eighth-,
ninth- and 10I'-graders. Much
like college students of the
more traditional variety,
children register for classes,
attempting to fill a schedule
it with six classes (three classes
for those attending the
Sites program's half-day session).
g the "It gives you-a seiise of
3sket responsibility," student Shelby
ss Clark said.
ect These students. however,
t is take a variety or courses that
o are not typical college-student
3ught fare. Course offerings allow
students to learn about and
iuk. make frontier toys popular in
days gone by, make kilts and
jewelry and cook such goodies
as fudge. Sure, there are
courses such as math and
science, but the emphasis is on
giving children a fun
experience, In fact, the math
course is called "Making Math
Fun," while the science course,
"Ooey Gooey Science," allows
kids to perform a variety of
experiments meant to rate high
on the wow-factor scale.
Such classes certainly
caught Kristapher James' eye
when a presentation on the
program was made at his
school.
"I saw some fun stuff," he
said' adding he was excited
. about becoming a participant.
James and Minx are first-
time participants in the
program. James was looking
forward ,to taking the tennis
and "Got Game?" classes,
while Minx was looking
forward 'to the scrapbooking
class "Scrap It" and
"Babysitting Survival 101."

forward to taking babysittlil

Mike Shalley grew
up in the grocery
business and carries
out what he learned
at Lawtey
Supermarket
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


grandfather was deported for
escorting immigrants across
the Mexican-U.S. border.
"They were very poor (in
Syria), very poor," Shalley
said. "I remember him telling
me how they'd.work all day
for just a handful of wheat to
where they could make a meal
to feed the family."
Growing up in Syria,
Shalley's father learned how to


cobble and actually worked as
a shoemaker upon his return to
the States. Shalley even
remembers how he and his
siblings wore shoes his father
made from tires.
"We had the neatest sandals
ever when we went to school,"

Abe and G*eorge-they have
five stores among them, two ot

They are big ambitions from
one who "rebelled," in his
words, and went off in another
direction while his brothers
remained in the grocery
business.
A family affair
It all began with his parents,
Mike and Louise, who was
also known as Fozie. Mike and
Fozie, who were both of
Syrian descent, got into the
grocery business in 1953.
Mike's Grocery was located on
Pearl and Dixie streets in
Jacksonville.
Shalley's mother died when


he was 4, but his father later
married another woman of
Syrian descent, Sarah. She
gave birth to Shalley's two
brothers.
Though his parents were of
Syrian' descent, Shalley said
his mother insisted he speak
English. She was proud to be
an American, he said, and
wanted her child to be an
American in every sense. .
Shalley's stepmother,
though, spoke no English,
which is why Shalley is now
fluent in both English and
Arabic.
"I had to learn to speak
(Arabic) real quick to let her
know, 'I'm hungry,'" Shalley
said, laughing.
Shalley is not sure of how
hip family got into the grocery
business to start with. His
parents had rather interesting'
lives leading up to that. His
mother grew up in an
orphanage after her arrival to
Ellis Island from Syria. His
father was born in Detroit, but
moved to Syria when he was 3.

Adkins reviews
session
Dear Editor.
Since the end of the
legislative session in early
May, I have given more than a
dozen presentations on the
legislative session. Time and
again,. I have been asked,
"How do you feel about the
budget?" It is important as we
look at the state budget, that it
i is viewed in the context of our
economy, so. I would like' to
share with you some
information, regarding our
economy.
This year only two states
expect revenue collections to
come in above budgeted
forecasts (Wyoming and North
Dakota), while 38 states expect'
revenue shortfalls. This past
fiscal year alone, 42 states
(including Florida) were
forced to reduce enacted
budgets by over $31 billion.
Compare this to 2002 and
2003, when 37 states were
-forced to make mid-year
budget reductions totaling $14
billion and $12 billion
respectively.
Florida's growth is now
'decelerating. Our state gross
domestic product now ranks
48"' in the country, down from
2005 when it ranked second.
Florida's economy, and its tax
revenue structure, is built on
growth. Its reliance on these
growth industries is the reason
Florida has been hit so hard by"'
the downturn in real estate \'
In normal years there are
approximately 50,000. homes
for sale around the state at any
one time. Today economists:
indicate there is an additional
300,000 homes for sale. This
overhang, coupled with the
decelerating growth in the
state, means it will take many,
many months before this
inventory can be cleared and
real economic growth begins.
Since January of 2008,
Florida's unemployment rate
has been consistently higher
than the national average.
Florida's unemployment in
May reached 10.2 percent,thee,
highest level since 1975.' The
unemployment rate in
Bradford County rose to 7.6
percent in May; a 'dramatic
jump from the 4.2 percent rate
from one year ,ago. Our
national economy has lost over
seven million jobs since the


recession. began in December
2007.
This year our state budget
totals $66.5 billion, roughly
the same amount as last year's
budget. Compared to our
budget high of $73.8 billion in
2006/p7, this might seem low.
But comparedto tohe 200/01
budget of $45.4 billion, you
can see that there has been
quite a bit of growth 'over a
relatively short period of time.
Our state's reliance on growth
to fuel our economy has left us
with a narrow economic base
that must be widened as we.
'work- to shape the new
economy.
An improving economy will
take hard work and a team
effort. Consumption will no
longer drive economic growth
and prosperity. This will be
achieved through productivity
gains and becoming more
competitive in attracting
business to the sunshine state.
We will need to create
Regional comparative
advantages. Specialization and
a skilled w fokfrce will allow
ps to create productivity gains
and will make our community
attractive to new investment
and growth. We must rethink
our policies as we move
forward in this changing
economy.
Competing for second
homeowners, new small
businesses and tourism dollars
will be essential to ensure our
local economy remains vibrant
and prosperous. It is clear that
* the economy is shifting gears
and local communities will
need to work closer together in
order to compete for the new
opportunities that lie ahead.
I believe that job creation
and job preservation are
critical to our long-term
economic recovery and
stability. We must, look to
diversify our state's economy
..and rely less on growth.
.People wiU continue- to seek
the sunshine state; however,
now it will be different reasons
that bring them to our shores.
As summer approaches, we

kindness
Dear Editor:
My husband is a Shriner and
was "walking the streets" at
the parade on the Fourth of
July. Walking the streets is
collecting money for the
Shriners' Hospital. The people
of Keystone Heights are a very
valuable resource for oaur-
hospital, as they are very
generous.
While Jay was walking the
streets, he dropped $63 out of
his own pocket. A lady picked
it up and actually gave it back
to him, rather than pocket the
money herself.
I1 wanted to thank the
anonymous person and let
people know that there really
are good and honest people left
in this world.
Thanks to the city of
Keystone Heights for. your
kindness and to the honest
lady. -

Mitchell Brown is a good

Mitchell. God did not make

Dear Editor:
I realize that Michael
Jackson was very popular to a
lot of people. With the type of
entertaining he gave out, some
people called him the king of
pop. Getting all the media
coverage one would think a
president of the United States
had been assassinated. I know
he was very special to some
people but also some very
important issues concerning us
need to be taken care of.
Sure, whii someone passes,
it should be recognized. But so
does the things that affect
everyday lives. Look at the
soaring prices on almost every
thing that it takes to sustain
- life, .These-are-also -very
important and need to be taken
care of. The media should get
all worked up over these
issues, too.
Think about all the young
people who have died for our
cause. If it had, not been for
these people, Michael Jackson
might not have reached his
goals in life.
These brave young people
might have had goals also but
their lives were snuffed out
before they could achieve
them.


These young heroes did not
die from drug overdoses or
applying drugs into their arms
and legs with syringes. They
died from bullets. What for?
For the cause of our freedoms


and safety.
So, when we start praising
and applauding idols, let's also
do the same for our heroes.
God bless America.
Mitchell Brown

A long history of helping: Haven Hospice marks 25th year


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor


The June 21, 1984, Lake
Region Monitor reported that a
new organization, The Hospice
of the Lakes, had just been
formed. The organization was
founded under the auspices of
the Santa Fe Health Services
and Alachua General Hospital
in Gainesville.
Patti Moore, director of
North Florida Hospices, led 28
lay nurse volunteers through
a 28-hour training program,
meeting several days in the
Melrose Homemakers Club.
Similar programs had been set
up elsewhere in Florida since
1979.
Local resident Betty Zowarka
was one of those 28 volunteers,
and as time went on she was
instrumental in getting the
organization up and running.
Then she became a key member
and even today remains one of
its most visible Lake Region
spokespersons.
The purpose of the new
organization was to, provide.
services and care for the
terminally ill and for their
caretakers.
The volunteers would
help families and the dying
by shopping, reading or just'
by sitting with the patient to
provide companionship or let
other care providers step out
for a bit.
There was to be no charge
for hospice services, the 1984
article said, and patients had
to be recommended by their
doctor. In fact, patients had to
have been given only a short
time to live, perhaps six months,
by their medical. providers. *
In 1984, donations could be
made to the new organization
through the Keystone State.
Bank. According to hospice


staff, the organization would
be ready to receive patients by
August of that year.
By 2009, the hospice, now
called Haven. Hospice, was
serving the needs of dying
patients and their families
around north Florida. What
had been the Hospice of the
Lakes now has locations
in Gainesville, Deland,
Jacksonville, Lake City, St.
Augustine and Chiefland.
Since its inception, Haven
Hospice has -served nearly.
40,000 patients and their-
families in 18 counties; and
now has more than 600 staff
members and 1,000 volunteers
who live and work in the
communities they serve. There
are now four Haven Hospice
care centers in North Florida -
and six full-time physicians
who make house calls.
Promotional materials
say the organization. respects
cultural differences and works
with the patient's doctor to
provide care. Recently, Haven
Hospice was chosen as one of
two. organizations for a trial
program to provide care in
rural areas.
The program receives funds
from Medicare, Medicaid, or
the patient's private insurance.
However, there is no out-of-
pocket cost to the individual
and no one is turned away for
inability to pay for services., ,

Which means that Haven.
Hospice also runs on
contributions.Thelate Keystone
Heights philanthropist Al
Watson and others donated.
funds to the hospice facility in'
Palatka. An area of the facility
is called Aggie's Garden. At the.
end of their lives, both Watson
and his wife Agnes, were.
comforted in. their home by
Hospice volunteers, Likewise,,

COLLEGE
Continued from page 1 B
Clark is taking the class
again, but she is not the only
girl this time around. There is
one other in her class.
While Clark and her fellow
female student are mixing it up
with the boys in one of the
"Got Game" classes, several
boys have a running joke about
the skirts they have been
making for themselves. Well,
they're not really skirts, but
students such as James like to
refer to the kilts they are
making in "Highland Games"'
Ss their "man skirts."
"Highland Games" is anew
class this year, taught. by
Lindsey Sheffield. Sheffield's
mother, Linda, is the
coordinator of the College for
Kids program in Starke. Linda
Sheffield likes the fact the,
class incorporates hands-on
activities as well as an
understanding of those
activities.
"She's talking about the
culture," Sheffield said of her
daughter. "A lot of times, kids
will go, 'Kilts? What are men.
wearing skirts for?' Part of
'Highland Games' is to teach
the diversity. Sometimes it's
more important to understand
what is behind the culture
instead of just assuming
because it's different, it's
weird."
Could "Highland Games"
become the next popular class
in the College for Kids
program? Maybe. If so, it well
may be offered, again like
recurring classes such as
"Ooey Gooey Science" and
"Make It Snappy." However,

something new children
express an interest in.
"We really do read them,"
Sheffield said of the
evaluations. "We take
information from there to, see
what 'we can use, to offer more
of a variety. We work real hard
to make the program better."


Enrollment is down this year
for the program, with 49
students as opposed to more
than 60 last year. Sheffield
suspects the economy had an
effect on that and, in fact,
anticipated as much. Still,
members of the 'community

students to attend the program
for free after being selected via

scholarships, but by
volunteering to teach classes.
Oleeta Hardenbrook, for
example, has been teaching
"Life on the Kitchen Trail" for
more than five years. She
enjoys working with the
children and thinks the
program is a benefit to those
who attend.
"It's an experience they
don't get anywhere,"
Hardenbrook said. "I think it's
a great program."
Hardenbrook's classes are
some of the most popular of
the program. Children get to
make vtifuncggiadks a ftOm
recipe s .garlen boQk. selects
that are simple enough for
them to do at home. What the
-children really enjoy, are the
fruits of their labor. They
make. They eat it,.
Minx, who takes the class,
was looking forward to making
peanut-butter balls. Upon
hearing that, James, who does
not take the class, whispered to
her: "Save me some."


James said he wishes he had
taken the cooking class,
Perhaps he'll get the chance to
do so next year. He, Minx,
Campbell and Clark said they
would all like to take the
program again. They are not
the only ones.
"We have several new kids
who weren't sure about (the
program) and..are taking only
half days," "%Sheffield said.
"They weren't sure. Next year,
they want to go full day."

In Memory I

In Loving Memory
of
Harold E. Rhoden
There's a heap of satisfaction
to sit here thinking of you
and to tell you once again, dear,
how very much I love you.
There is comfort just in longing
for a smile from your dear face,
And joy in just remembering
each sweet and fond embrace.
There is happiness in knowing
that my heart will always be
a place where I can hold you
and keep you near to me.

Love forever, your wife,
Pearlie
