Starke to vote on Sunday alcohol sales


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Reversing a decision it made a few
years ago, the Starke City Commission
agreed Tuesday night to let voters de-
cide whether or not the ban on Sunday
alcohol sales in the city limits should be
lifted.
The commission voted 4-1 to put
the referendum on the September bal-
lot, with only Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner dissenting.
Operations Manager Ricky Thomp-
son requested the question of Sunday
alcohol sales be put to voters, saying
he has been approached by numerous
business owners in the last few months
asking that voters be allowed to decide
on Sunday sales.
Businesses feel they are at a disad-
vantage, when they aren't allowed to
sell a product 52 days out of the year, he
said. It's not just restaurants or bars, but


grocery and convenience stores, too, he
said-all businesses that pay city taxes
and utility bills but face a disadvantage
their competitors do not.
And it's not just competitors in oth-
er communities, he said. Anyone who
wants to can drive right outside the city
.limits and purchase alcohol at 7 a.m. on
a Sunday if they want to.
Thompson said many feel that if
Starke is ever going to grow, the city
will have to allow Sunday alcohol sales
or potential new businesses will con-
tinue to choose other cities.
"With our current economic situa-
tion and the outlook for recovery not to
be anytime soon, our business owners
need every advantage they can get to be
successful," Thompson wrote in a letter
to the commission. "We have recently
lost a major business due to sales be-
ing down (ABC Fine Wine and Spirits),
and this will result in a considerable
revenue loss for the city of Starke."


Tuesday's board discussion began
with some tension when Mayor Tommy
Chastain interrupted Spooner's attempt
to comment by insisting on an up or
down motion before discussion could
begin. Spooner objected, but Chastain
insisted on a motion, so she moved to
not place the issue on the ballot. Her
motion died for lack of a second.
Chastain passed the gavel to Com-
missioner Travis Woods in order to
make a motion the other way. Woods
had to pass the gavel back to second the
motion, but when he began to comment
prior to doing so, Spooner objected and
required, he second the motion before
proceeding.
Woods made his second and said the
issue of Sunday sales is something that
would keep coming up until voters were
allowed to decide. County residents had
voted.on alcohol sales in the past, and
he said it should still be up to the people
to decide.

Lawmakers tackle budget, other issues


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The legislative session is under way,
and lawmakers facing a $3 billion rev-
enue shortfall and a nearly 12 percent
unemployment rate have their work cut
out for them.
Foreclosures in the state are soaring,
putting a strain on families and govern-
ments. The number was approaching a
half million at the end of 2009.
Unemployment is also at an all-time
high for the state, but there was a small
ray of sunshine of-
fered in the capital
last week. State-
revenue estimates
were adjusted, and
lawmakers learned
they' would have
$25 million more
than anticipated
in the current year
and $56' million
more for the bud-
get they are cur-
rently planning.
While these are
relatively small
adjustments, many
did take them to
mean that the worst
of the economic
recession had been
seen in the state.
The state is still
several years away
from returning to
the robust growth
and surpluses ex-
perienced just a
few years ago, .
however.
Among the de-
tails, the House
budget includes
no new taxes or
fees, but it does
pull an additional
$600 million out
of trust funds to
help fund public
schools. The $9
billion allocation
to public schools
is a 9 percent fund-
ing increase in state funding, although
the additional money may only serve
to offset lost revenue at the local level.
Even with the state funding increase,
individual districts are facing cuts that
will impact employment and services.
Health care is hurting for funds. The
Senate's proposed budget would cut
funding for children's mental services,
child abuse programs, adult substance
abuse funding and cause hundreds of
state jobs to be cut.
The health care budget will still be
larger than the current year since it
includes federal funds earmarked for
specific purposes like direct cash assis-
tance for poverty-stricken families. The
governor is hoping for a $1 billion shot
of federal revenue to help cope with ris-
ing Medicaid costs.
Negotiations with the Seminole Tribe


over a gaming compact could raise mil-
lions for the state in exchange for ex-
clusive gaming rights. Failure to reach
an agreement could open the door to
non-tribal gaming facilities. That could
prove even more lucrative if the state
auctions off gaming licenses to the-
highest bidders.
The governor based his $69.2 billion
budget, particularly education spend-
ing increases, on this potential revenue,.
but the Legislature has been cautions
about building a budget on unpredict-
able sources.


While money is tight, it's still an elec-
tion year, so leaders are talking about
cuts in some of the fee hikes approved
last year (such as vehicle licenses and
registration) and a 1 percent corporate
income tax cut. A 10-day sales ia\ holi-
day has also been proposed.
The goal for each chamber is to com-
plete individual work on budgets by
April 1 so the remainder of the session
can be spent on negotiations to bridge
differences between the House and
Senate versions of the budget.
In addition to grappling with the
budget, the Legislature is expected to
deal with measures favorable to busi-
ness and economic development. The
first thing the House did following he
speaker's opening was unanimously
approve a bill postponing an increase in
unemployment compensation taxes that


legislators felt would hurt businesses,
leading to even more lost jobs.
The tax hike was put off for twoyears.
In the meantime, the state is borrowing
hundreds of millions of dollars each
month from the federal government to
recharge its bankrupt unemployment
compensation trust fund.
Florida's indebtedness, almost $27
billion, it as at a record high.
The Senate also approved delaying
the unemployment compensation tax
hike, and the governor has signed it, but
both chambers avoided changes to the
system that would
have expanded
coverage to some
who do not cur-
Srently qualify and
make the state eli-
gible for addition-
al federal stimulu's
dollars.
The Senate has
approved a bill'
reforming ethics
for the Public Ser-
vice Commission
flowing a scandal
last year in which
commissioners
and staffers were
accused of com-
promising com-
munications em-
ployees of utilities
they are charged
with regulating.
The bill aims at

flicts aof inter-
est and promotes
openness by limit-
ing off the record
communication at
the PSC.
The bill also'
restricts former
commissioners
from lobbying
state government
or testifying be-
fore the PSC for
four years after
leaving the com-
mission.
Meanwhile,
a bill that would subject the Florida
Municipal Power Agency to, rate. PSC
regulation has been referred to several
'related committees.
A bill that would standardize the use
of cameras at red light is making its
way through the House. The cameras
take pictures.of license plates, and that
information is used to mail traffic cita-
tions.
A circuit courtjudge last month ruled
red light cameras in Aventura were ille-
gal. The logic goes if the violation isn't
witnessed by a law enforcement officer,
then a ticket cannot be issued.
Nearly 30 jurisdictions around the
state have installed cameras to automat-
ically catch red-light runners and have
gotten around the state's traffic code
by declaring red light infractions local

Discovery of remains


tied to missing woman


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The investigation into the disappear-
ance of Pamela Kay Hall officially
became a homicide investigation last
week after the human remains found
near a Graham cemetery were positive-
ly identified as belonging to the missing
woman.
Hall's was a cold case being investi-
gated by the sheriffs office when new
information gleaned during a drug in-
vestigation led Detective Sgts. Kevin
Mueller and Brian Davis to a pile of
brush just outside of Mt. Sinai Cem-
etery where a skull and other skeletal
remains were discovered Thursday, the
Gainesville medical examiners office
had positively identified Hall nearly
seven years after her family last saw
her.
While authorities haven't commented
specifically on the "person of interest"
they say is currently in custody, Hall's
brother, was arrested on March 9. Tracy
Austin. Hall, 28, of Graham, is charged
with conspiracy to traffic oxycodone.
He is being held at the jail with bond-
set at an unusually high $500,000.
According to Bradford County Sher-
iffs Office Captain Brad Smith, Pamela
Hall was last seen on July 2,2003. Her
family reported her missing in Novem-
ber later that year.
"For the last several years, rumors
had surfaced about her being a victim
of homicide, but there was no evidence
to prove these rumors to be true," Smith
said.
She was also wanted at the time of
her disappearance on several worthless.
check warrants and was known to abuse
drugs, according to the sheriff's office.
Her aunt, Brenda Bell, countered that
perception, saying in spite of any prob-
lems she may have been having, Pamela
was a very sweet girl with a lot of po-
tential. The family always believed she
would turn her life around. Pamela was
a smart girl who didn't fit the profile of
a drug abuser and never showed signs
of drug use around family, she said.
"We truly loved her and have been
really, really concerned about her," Bell
said. "We had never stopped looking."
She said the family was shocked by
last week's discovery.
"Even though we felt it in our hearts,
to actually know it is shocking," said
Bell, who went on to applaud the sher-
iff's office and its current leadership for
working to bring closure to the case.

Capt. Smith credited Sheriff Gordon
Smith with renewed efforts-in investi-
gating cold cases, and he also pointed
to the drug enforcement relationship
developed with the Union County Sher-
iffs Office and the Starke Police De-
partment.
"These two actions brought about
new leads in this case which resulted in
the discovery of the victim's remains,"
he said.
"Efforts are being made in conjunc-
tion with the State Attorney's Office
to conclude the investigation and bring
any parties involved in this case tojus-
tice" Smith said.
Bell said the family would hold a pri-
vate memorial for Pamela.


Jobs on the way while

unemployment rate rises


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Last week, Florida's unemployment
rate was reported to have risen to 11.9
percent in January-the highest unem-
ployment rate in the state since May
1975. It is also higher than the 9.7 na-
tional unemployment rate. The state
rate was up 3.2 percent from a year ago
and up 0.2 percent from December.
While the state reported increases in
health care and private education, jobs
were lost in utilities, construction and
hospitality.
In the Alachua Bradford workforce
region, the unemployment rate was 10
percent for Bradford County and 8.7
percent for Alachua County.
By comparison, Flagler County had
the state's highest jobless rate--17.1
percent. It was followed by Hernando
(15.7 percent), Marion (15.4 percent),
Hardee and St. Lucie counties (both
14.9 percent). Fifty-seven of the state's
counties posted double-digit unemploy-
ment rates.
The counties with the lowest unem-
ployment rates in the state were Liberty
(7.5 percent), Monroe (8.2 percent),
Leon (8.5 percent) and Alachua.
The state hopes that the Florida Back


to Work Program will make something
of a dent in joblessness.
Florida is waiting on a first install-
ment of $61.2 million from the U.S.
Department of Health and Human
Services to cover the first phase of the
program. Meanwhile workforce agen-
cies are still accepting applications for
a second round of job approvals.
The program is paying for employers
to hire people into positions and paying
for 95 percent of the salary and train-
ing costs of those new hires through at
least September. A total of $200 mil-
lidn in federal funds was made avail-
able through the initiative.
To get one of these jobs, the appli-
cant must receive, or be eligible to re-
ceive Temporary Aid for Needy Fami-
lies. That includes being low income
and having at least one child under 18
years of age.
Fifteen Bradford County employers
requested $4.4 million in funding for a
total of 179 positions in the first round.
That includes local government. The
county was approved for 10 positions,
according to County Manager Brad
Carter. Applicants will fill positions in
the understaffed maintenance and road
departments. \

New study reveals Union has the poorest health ranking in the state


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

SThe Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation, in collaboration
with the University of Wiscon-
sin's Population Health Institute,
recently released the first of its
kind county health rankings of
everycounty in all 50 states.
In the ranking of Florida's
67 counties, Union County was
listed as having the worst over-
all health ranking and Bradford
fared little better at 53d. The
Florida county having the high-
est overall health ranking was
Collier County.
The purpose of the health
study was to assist public health
agencies, community leaders,
policymakers, and citizens with
seeing how healthy their county
is, comparing it with others with-
in their state, and finding ways to
improve the health of their. com-
munity.
Counties were ranked on key
factors affecting health such as
smoking, obesity, binge drinking,
access to primary medical care,
high school graduation rates, vio-
lent crime rates, pollution levels,
liquor store density, unemploy-
ment rates and the number of
children living in poverty.

How county overall
health rankings
were determined
A county's overall health out-
come was factored by mortality
and morbidity rates.
Mortality rates were deter-
mined by the county's premature
death rate. Every death occurring
before the age of 75 was figured
into the total number of years of
potential life lost. For example, a
person dying at age 25 amounts
to 50 years of life lost, whereas
a person who dies at age 65 indi-
cates 10 years of life lost.
The data for this ranking was
based on years 2004-2006. A rep-
resentative with County Health


Rankings stated
that vital statis-
tics data such
as low birth
weight and pre-
mature death
includes data
obtained from
correctional fa-
cilities.
Theotherfac-
tor, a county's
morbidity rate,
was determined
by a number of
measures, in-
cluding random
phone survey
responses to
the question:

"In general,
would you say that your health is
excellent, very good, good, fair,
or poor?" Included in the report
is the average number of days the
county's adult respondents said
their physical or mental health
was not good.
Survey data was collected be-
tween 2002-2008. Correctional
facilities were not included in the
morbidity calculation.

Health rankings
Also studied were health fac-
tor rankings for each county.
In overall health factors, Union
County ranked 52nd out of 65 and
Bradford County ranked 47'". St.
Johns County was listed as hav-
ing the best health factors rank-
ing.
Health factors were deter-
mined by the four, major areas of
health behaviors, clinical care,
social and economic factors, and
physical environment factors.
Measures used for determin-
ing health behavior results in-
cluded adult smoking, adult obe-
sity, binge drinking, auto crash
death rate, Chlamydia and the
teen birth rate. Data gathered
for health factor ratings includes
years 2000-2008. The correc-
tional facility population is not
included in these results.


As seen in the chart, both Union
and Bradford counties have a
high rate of adult smoking and
adult obesity. The percentage of
adult smokers in Union County
was 31 percent, closely followed
by Bradford at 27 percent. The
state average was reported as 21
percent, and in Miami-Dade, the
county ranked as having the best
health behaviors, that number
was 16 percent.
The data for binge drinking
and the motor vehicle crash death
rates were included because of a
strong association between ex-
cessive drinking and alcohol-
impaired driving.
Union is also above the state's
average of 14 percent binge
drinkers. Union County was
cited as having 19 percent of its
population be binge drinkers.
Bradford falls below the state
average at 12 percent. Bradford
and Union both have a high auto-
mobile crash death rate, adjusted
at 26 (Union) and 39 (Bradford)
per 100,000, when compared to
the state average of 19. In Mi-
ami-Dade, the number is 16 per
100,000.
Another area of concern is
Union and Bradford's teen birth
rates of 66 and 69, respectively,
compared to the state average of


46 per 100,000.

Spooner wanted to know how..
many people had approached
Thompson about the issue, but
other than giving a rough es-
timate, he could only say that
it had happened frequently.
Spooner said she would prefer a
sampling of voter opinion, say-
ing the 15 or so Thompson had
mentioned out of 3,000 voters
was not enough to determine the
will of the people.
She pointed to a number of
:citizens who had objected to
selling alcohol on Sundays and
holding a referendum on the is-
sue, although Thompson pointed
out that many who had spoken
against lifting the ban-95 per-
cent, he estimated-were not ac-
tually city residents.
Spooner said the commission
needed to look at the city's mis-
sion and its values and consider
the will of the people. She said
commissioners didn't know the
will of the people because they
had not taken a poll.
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
said he agreed with Spooner, but
also with the mayor. Times are
tough for businesses, and not be-
ing able to sell a product for 52
days a year was probably a larger
loss than the commission could
: imagine, he said, adding he is ap-
proached all the time about the
issue.
As a Christian, Waters said it's
Sa tough decision for him to make,
but he said he has to look at the
bigger picture of what it means to
Starke businesses.
In 2007, the board split 3-2,
with Spooner and Woods sup-
porting Waters' motion against
the referendum. Chastain and
Commissioner Danny Nugent
(who has since been replaced by
his wife, Melissa, on the board)
cast the dissenting votes.
Waters reversed his previous
support of a referendum in 2007
: when the issue came to a vote.
Spooner said at the time that she
wasn't opposed to a referendum
if there was enough support for
:it, however she found support
lacking.
The 2007 vote came after a
handful of public discussions
on the issue. Peter Osgard, who
once owned the sports bar Whale

Library funding threatened again Majorettes earn superior rating at competition


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Funding for libraries in Florida
is once again under attack. Last
week, appropriations committees
in the Florida House and Senate
chose to eliminate all funding for
Florida's State Aid to Public Li-
braries program.
The action comes on top of
budget ruts already suffered by
libraries around the state.
"This devastating action will
result in some Florida library
branches closing and will seri-
onsly cripple libraries' ability
to serve Floridians," said Faye
Roberts, executive director for
the Florida Library Association.
. "This will be especially dam-
aging to libraries in Florida's ru-
ral communities, as these librar-
ies rely heavily on provisions in
the program that help communi-


ties with lower tax bases," Rob-
erts said.
This year, state funds made up
nearly $900,000 of the library's
$1.4 million budget. It helps pays
for staff salaries and benefits, but
the lion's share is budgeted for
book and media purchases
According to the FLA, the cuts
come at a bad time as it says Flo-
ridians are turning to their librar-
ies more than ever in this chal-
lenging economic climate. For
example, FLA says:
Job seekers turn to libraries
to learn about and apply for
jobs.
Floridians needing to apply
for critical E-Government
services and benefits are
getting help from library
staff, computers and Internet
service.
S Florida families are relying
on library books, CDs, and


DVDs to stretch household
budgets.
Families continue to rely
on libraries to help children
learn to read and help par-
ents and caregivers learn to
be children's first teachers.
FLA is encouraging people to
oppose' further cuts, .saying li-
brary funding has already been
cut by one-third since 2001. To-
day libraries receive $21.2 mil-
lion from the state, compared to
$33.4 million a few years ago.
That doesn't include cuts in local
funding many communities have
had to endure.
"Library funding was saved
last session when the program
was threatened at the last minute
and Florida residents rose up and
legislators restored the funding,"
Roberts said.


Bradford High School Majorettes competed at FBA district In Gainesville and received
a superior rating. They will be moving on to the state competition. Pictured above are
majorettes Ashlyn Crews, Halley Williams, Nicole Miller, Maegan Soble and Tymber
Tatum with Instructor Kim Register Oxley.


Hundreds gathered for a student organized prayer before classes began at Lake Butler
Elementary School on March 5.

Community mourns girl's passing


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

Union County 12-year-old
Michelle Marie Perez passed
away early Wednesday morning.
'March 10. She had been in the
intensive care unit at Shands
at the University of Florida on
life support since March 2, after
her heart stopped beating and
she collapsed during a softball
practice.The cause of the medical
incident remains unknown.
She is the daughter of Sal and
Grace Perez, the owners of Union
Medical Suppl, aiiclWe sister
of Grace M.Naria6Pe'e'nQd Alex-
Perez. She has numerous cousins
in Union County schools and is
the niece of the well-known Dr.
artha Lloyd of the Lake Butler
medical Clinic.
The FCAT, was postponed
Wednesday at Lake Butler
Middle School, however,
students still came to school to
grieve together. Superintendent
Carlton Faulk said that local
preachers with the Ministerial
Alliance immediately came to the
school to pray, talk with and offer
a shoulder for students to cry on.
School counselors also lent their
support to grieving students.
In lieu of classes, students
gathered in the gymnasium, the
library and the courtyard to just
:-alk and share memories of their
-friend.
Lake Butler Middle School
'Principal Russell Larramore
:said, "Today, school is all about
;Micheiie. She is so loved and has
:.ten such a friend to everyone."
STo help them cope with their
sorrow, students made banners
riand wrote messages to Michelle.
'They fill one, roll it up and start
afiother," said Larramore.
He added that a group made
:bookmarks for the seventh-
,:grade class with the following
-w.vords: "I've heard it said that
people come into our lives for
:-a reason. You'll be with me like
a:handprint on my heart. I do
-believe I have been changed for
:the better because I knew you. I
have been changed for good."
' Also to honor Michelle, the
yearbook company has agreed
.to add a free page dedicated in
.-her memory. The school board
:purchased ribbons that are being
.placed on all the school buses in
honor of-Michelle.
Back on March 3, friends
-.of Michelle started a group
on Facebook.com, titled "I'mr
::praying my hardest for Michelle
SPerez and her family."
A post last Wednesday
morning by Michelle's father
Spreads, "Michelle went to be with
::the Lord early this morning on
Wednesday, March 10, 2010. We
:thank all the people who have
been praying for Michelle and
my family. We ask you to please
keep praying for Michelle's
eternal life and for my family so
-we can get the strength to keep
on going at this difficult time.

The city of Starke also applied
for 10 positions.
Including Alachua County
employers' requests, the pro-
gram would help create 650 jobs
in the region with more to come
as additional employers apply for
funding.
The Florida Agency for Work-
force Innovation is offering the
program in partnership with the
Florida Department of Children
and Families, Workforce Florida
and regional workforce boards.
For this area, the workforce
agency is FloridaWorks. Eligible
job seekers can get find open po-
sitions on the Internet at www.
floridaworksonline.com or www.
employflorida.com,or by visiting
the local One-Stop Career Center
in the Bradford Square Shopping
Center.
Employers have been given ac-
cess to review applicants through
the Web, according to local
Chamber of Commerce Presi-
dent Pam Whittle. They are pass-
ing on the names of candidates
they would like to interview to
the chamber.
The funds have not been re-
leased, so no hires have been
made yet, but the governor said
the funds are forthcoming. Ac-
cording to a press release from
the Agency for Workforce In-
novation, "Once these funds are
released, Florida is ready to be-
gin implementing the program
statewide and putting Floridians
back into the workforce."
New employers interested Tn
participating in the program can
contact the North Florida Re-
gional Chamber of Commerce
at 904-964-5278. Delays mean
that the original program sched-
ule has been scrapped, however,
so an application deadline for the
second round of funding requests
from employers is not known.

Supporters want this addition-
al flexibility. So far, the measure
has had favorable votes in the
education and ways and means
committees.
A Senate committee has also
approved a bill that would in-
crease graduation requirements.
If approved all students would
eventually have to pass geom-
etry, two years of algebra, biol-
ogy, chemistry or physics and an
additional science course. These
requirements would be phased
in, as would end-of-course ex-
aminations.
Passing the exams would be
required for course credit. They
would also reportedly replace
the state's current standard of
academic measurement-the
FCAT.
The Senate Tax and Finance
committee has also put forward
an expansion of the state's vouch-

Something else that could re-
ceive a lot of discussion as a bill
to create a 300-foot safety buf-
fer around children. While many
areas already impose living re-
strictions on convicted sexual
predators, keeping them a certain
distance from schools and other
places children congregate, the
new legislation would make it il-
legal for predators to loiter near
them as well.

Keep Public Notices
In Your Newspaper!
Proposed legislation would remove
your right to read public notices in
newspapers, restricting them to
government web sites only.
We're concerned.
You should be, too.
Public notices are an important tool
in ensuring an informed citizenry.
They have played a key role in
America's participatory democracy
where it counts most: how your tax
dollars are spent and how policy is
made.
When located in easy-to-find
sections of your newspaper, they are
fully accessible to everyone, unlike the
Internet. Large segments of the state's
population, including more than half
of Floridians over 65 and one-third
of minority populations, do not have
Internet access.
The public's right to know cannot
be abandoned in favor of cost savings
that are elusive.


Consider that less than 10% of U.S.
citizens view a government web site
daily, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. This contrasts dramatically
with the 83% of adults who read a
community newspaper every week,
according to the National Newspaper
Association.
Furthermore, a public notice printed
in the newspaper produces a
permanent record. A newspaper is
archived for years, and is not subject
to computer crashes and hackers.
Newspapers are easily verifiable,
fully transparent and represent
an impartial third party. Giving
government singular responsibility
for distributing public notices is like
putting the fox in charge of the hen
house.
Newspapers are your watchdogs.
Keep it that way. Contact your local
representative today and voice your
opinion.

Bradford's fair: 60 years of existence and then some


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
When the ribbon is cut at the
entrance of Building 1 at the
Bradford County Fairgrounds
this Friday, March 19, at 5 p.m.,
it will mark the official opening
of the 60'h annual Bradford
County Fair.
The fair's history, though,
goes back much further than 60
years, which is the length of
time the fair has been chartered
through the state.
No one is sure when the first
Bradford County Fair was, but
the earliest on record is 1913.
The July 26, 1979, centennial
issue of the Bradford County
Telegraph contained a story.
about that fair, which was held
in Lake Butler when Bradford
and Union counties were one.
The fair, which was held in con-
nection with the Corn Club and
Canning Club contests, was re-
ferred to as "the greatest public
gathering ever held in Bradford
County, with exhibits far beyond
expectations."
The Oct. 2, 1913, edition of
'the old Bradford County Times
listed several categories at the
fair in which prizes would be
awarded, including best bale of
hay, three best-bred hens, best
peck of home-grown oats, best
average 1-2 dozen stalks of
cane, best pound of homemade
butter, smallest child according
to age (10-13) and largest child
between ages 10 and 14.
It was reported that Sen. J.B.
"Doc" Crews of Lake Butler
was so impressed with the fair,
Oe circulated a petition to form a
fir association, "with the
agreement that 'the fair' is to be
held in Lake Butler every year,
since it is the most central and
accessible point in the county,
and is surrounde-b-y the very
best agricultural selection of the
state."
The fair wouldn't last as a re-
sult of the split of Bradford
County, with Union County
forming as a result, and the on-



Local Rotary
clubs send Shel-
terBoxes to Haiti
The Rotary clubs from Starke,
Lake Butler, Keystone Heights,
and Macclenny joined together
to send, four ShelterBoxes to
Haiti last month after the Jan. 12
earthquake that destroyed thou-
sands of homes in the Carribean
island nation and left approxi-
mately a million homeless.
ShelterBox, a nonprofit group
started by Rotarians and dedi-
cated to providing shelter,
warmth and comfort to survivors
of disasters worldwide, has sent
more than 10,000 tents and sup-
plies to Haiti since the earth-
quake, with plans to send thou-
sands more.
The local clubs got involved
when Macclenny Rotarian. Har-.
vey Baxter asked the three other
clubs if they would be willing to
contribute' $250 each toward
purchasing one of the $1,000
ShelterBoxes..Each box contains
a tent for 10 people, along with
sleeping bags, blankets, water
purification tablets, water con-
tainers, tools, rope, cooking
stove, cooking and eating uten-
sils, ponchos and other things to
give 10 people a temporary
means to survive after a disaster.
After Baxter made his request,
all of the clubs stepped up their
efforts and decided to contribute
enough funds to purchase four
ShelterBoxes..
The four clubs are part of Ro-
tary District 6970, which is
composed of more than 60 clubs
in northeast Florida. As of mid-
February, more than $60,000
had been raised in the district for
earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.
Rotary clubs worldwide have
raised close to $1 million for
Haitian earthquake efforts.
All of the local Rotary clubs
support efforts locally and inter-
nationally with the money they
raise through fundraisers. Lo-
cally, Rotarians support food
pantries, schools and athletic
programs, scholarships for those
in need, and various other pro-
grams.

revived in downtown Starke
with the backing of the local
American Legion. "The Straw-
berry Festival," as it was called,
was held where the Santa Fe
College Andrews Center parking
lot is,today. The'fair consisted of
"a few rides and gambling con-
cessions," according to the
Telegraph. Mary Lucille Torode
reigned as the Strawberry
Queen,
A fair/festival was held the
following year, but plans for a
third were put on hold as "a con-

event's general manager, pro-
posed organizing a nonprofit
corporation to assume control of
the fair, but a poll conducted by
the Telegraph indicated the pub-
lic opposed even having a fair.
There-was no such event the
following four years.
In 1940, the local American
Legion applied for and received
a charter that gave it the author-
ity to sponsor a Bradford County
Fair. Association, which was to

be composed of American Le-
gion members. That first asso-
ciation consisted of RJ. Turner
(president), S.A. Weldon (vice
president), AJ. Thomas (treas-
urer) and N.D. Wainwright Jr.
(secretary).
Starke's Magnolia Hotel
served as fair headquarters in
1940, with the Telegraph report-
ing "arrangements and staging
of the event are under the direc-
tion of William C. Murray, a
World War veteran with many
years of experience in this line
of work."

The fair, which was to open
Dec. 2, 1940, was reported to
have a "mile-long midway."
Murray was quoted as saying:
"Several new European novelty
riding devices will be used here
that have never been seen before
in this part of the country. A
company of 500 people is em-
ployed on this gigantic midway.
"There will ,be high-class,
sensational free acts on the fair-
grounds each afternoon and
night, and special events will be
held each day."
Response to the fair was good.
"Members of the fair associa-
tion are still wondering if the
success with which they met is
really true," the Telegraph re-
ported.
By 1960, American Legion
members felt the fair had out-
grown their ability to handle it.
The charter forming the fair
association was amended so that
the association could be made
up of members who were not
members of the American Le-
gion. A new association was
formed in 1961, though Turner,
Weldon, Thomas and Wain-
wright still served as members.
It was on Oct. 25, 1961, that
the fair opened at the site it still
occupies today. The fair associa-
tion voted to raise $25,000
through a bond issue, which was
matched by the state, to build-
permanent exhibit buildings.
The 1960s provided quite a
number of interesting acts at the
fair, as was reported in the Tele-

graph. In 1963, the paper touted
"Speedy Babbs and his Globe of
Death," an attraction described
as "one of the greatest thrill acts
in the dountry-today." "Speedy"
was to perform as part of the
"big, free" attraction on the
fair's opening day. He appar-
ently rode inside a big, steel ball
"with complete loop-the-loops
and a spectacular finale of fire-
works."
The 1967 fair promised a
couple of "world-famous" acts,
including "the Wirengards."
"The Wirengards perform ul-
tra-unique aerial gyrations over
90 feet in the air on a revolving
mast," the Telegraph reported.
Another attraction at that
year's fair was supposed to be
Mario Rojas, whom was de-
scribed in the Telegraph as a
"world-famous unicyclist" from
Mexico City, but Fun Zones
Inc., the company that operated
the midway, later announced
Swede Johnson's International
Lions would replace Rojas.
"Previously scheduled Mario
Rojas, world-famous unicyclist,
has been cancelled in favor of a
more spectacular act of lions,"
the Telegraph story reported.
Once the fair got underway in
1967, a "major tragedy," as de-
scribed in an April 1 Gainesville
Sun story, was averted when a
helicopter carrying fairgoers\
crash landed "away from people
on the fairgrounds."

Bradford Relay for Life: a


chance to help and remember


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Those interested in participat-
ing in the Bradford County Re-
lay for Life are encouraged to
get a team together to help raise
funds or order luminaria to rec-
ognize those who are cancer
survivors and honor those who
have lost their lives to the dis-
ease.
This year's Relay for Life,
which is a fundraiser for the
American Cancer Society, is
scheduled for April 30-May 1 at
the Bradford High School track
from 6 p.m. until noon: As of
March 9, 21 teams had regis-
tered, but event coordinator
Melanie Fuhrman said there is
"plenty of room to grow."
Teams may be registered up
to the day of the event, but time
is limited to register if teams
wish to receive relay T-shirts for
every member who raises $100.
You may call Fuhrman at 904-
318-0299 or stop by the Starke
Walgreen's to talk to her in per-.
son.
: To register a team, visit the
Web site
www.relayforlife.org/bradfordfl.
SFuhrman, a breast cancer sur-
vivor, said she thinks the survi-
v)rs' lap that kicks off the event
ii the most important part of the
relay, but the second-most im-
pprtant event is the luminaria


ceremony, which "is also called
the Ceremony "of Hope. The
luminaria are bags illuminated
by candles that will encircle the
track, each one placed in either
recognition of someone who is a
cancer survivor or in honor of
someone who has lost their life
to the disease.
The Ceremony of Hope will
take place at approximately 9
p.m. Each name that is repre-
sented by a bag will be read
aloud.
"It's very somber," Fuhrman
said. "It's.very quiet and kind of
brings it home for a lot of peor
pie."
To order a luminaria, you may
do so on the above-mentioned
Web site or by calling Lindsay
Zarife at 904-338-3453.
Fuhrman ordered a luminaria
last year in recognition of Sheila
Miller, who died a half hour
before last year's relay began.
Still, Miller's family traveled
from the hospital in Gainesville
and participated in the relay.
"We didn't do anything but
cry and walk for an hour,"
Fuhrman said.
This year's relay is longer
than those of years past, expand-
ing to 18 hours. Fuhrman said a
Relay for Life is supposed to
represent the day in the life of a
cancer patient. That is why the
American Cancer Society en-


courage events to last from 18
to 24 hours.
"They can't quit and go home
because they're tired," Fuhrman
said of cancer patients, "so they
want us to stay up and keep go-
ing."
There will be entertainment
and activities on tap to keep
people going throughout the
event. Downtown Starke's Fri-
day Fest Cruz-ln, featuring clas-
sic cars, will relocate to the BHS
track area the Friday night the
Relay for Life kicks off, while
participating relay teams will
hold a yard sale at the track from
6 a.m. until noon on May 1.
The relay will have a 1950s
theme and is called "Rockin'
For a Cure."
"I've heard several people talk
about their poodle skirts being
made," Fuhrman said.
Again, for more information,
you may'call Fuhrman or see her
at Walgreen's. You can also call
American Cancer Society com-
munity partner Katie Jackson at
800-227-2345 or visjt the Web
site
www.relayforlife.org/bradfordfl.
A dinner for cancer survivors
and their caregivers will be held
prior to the relay at 5 p.m. Those
interested in attending must pre-
register either through the Web
site or by calling Fuhrman or
Sylvia Tatum at 904-966-1627.

driving a 1986 Ford sedan'
whhen she pulled out from a
,side road onto S.R. 121 in the
path of the 2006 Mack truck
driven by Hill.
Hill avoided hitting the car
by steering onto the right
shoulder of the road. When he
attempted to steer back onto
the roadway, the truck became
unbalanced and overturned,
spilling its load of asphalt.

Hill was transported to
Shands UF with serious.
injuries. Taylor was cited for,
making a left turn in front of.
approaching traffic and
violating the right-of-way.


Happy is he who' has laid up in his youth, ald
held fast in all fortune, a genuine and passionate
love for reading.

'Townsend reported that he
responded to a location on
C.R. 18 west of S.R. 121 in
relation to reports of a man
walking in the middle of the
road.
When Townsend arrived, he
said he saw a man walking
and instructed him to come to
the patrol car. The man
continued to walk and when
Townsend ordered him to stop,
the man ran into the woods and
shouted that he did not want to
go to jail.
Townsend told the man he
just wanted to talk to him and
the man shouted that he had
warrants on him and did not
want to go to jail. Townsend
told him he would be charged
with resisting if he fled. The
man still fled further into the
woods.
When the K-9 Team located
the man, he was identified as
Fernando Hernandez, 31, of
Lake Butler. Hernandez was
charged with resting an officer
without violence. He was also
booked on warrants for driving

Telegraph, Times & Monitor Thursday, March


Integrity in govern


Has it gone with tr


For the past several months,
we have been reading about
commissioners in two north
Florida counties being caught,
tried and sentenced for accept-
ing bribes, a breach in the integ-
rity of elected officials. A for-
mer member of the. Florida Leg-
islature and former speaker of
the house, Ray Sansom, R-Ft.
Walton Beach, has resigned his
office and is now charged with
grand theft and conspiracy along
with two long-time friends. San-
som, it is claimed, funneled
some $35 million appropriation
to his hometown college, North-
west Florida State College. He
sought and wvon a $6 million
"educational building" for the
college, which turned out to be
an aircraft hangar on private
properly. Sansom has resigned
from the House and has" been
indicted along with his two as-
sociates.
The situations mentioned here
only scratch the surface and,
with a little research, could fill a
very large book of larceny, theft,
sexual crimes and other odious
activities by elected officials,
which are compounded by the
apparent lack of concern by
other officials.
I pause at this point to com-
mend the many thousands of
elected officials in cities and
counties that go about their daily
chores of running* government
with honesty and integrity, but
as towns grow into cities, temp-
tations seem to grow corre-
spondingly and the peccadilloes


of officials, elected or ap-
pointed, grow in size and con-
tent. Commissioners of two
small counties being charged
with bribery is most unusual. I
believe small-county officials
are honest, as are small-town
officials. Is that because of
fewer opportunities?
Generally speaking, elected
constitutional officers holding
courthouse positions rarely get
charged with lapses of integrity,
although during Prohibition days
it was thought that county sher-
iffs often tipped off bootleggers
of a pending raid. Prior to the
passing of the 21"' Amendment
in 1933 that repealed the
18thAmendment prohibiting the
manufacture and sale of intoxi-
cating beverages,-every town,
such and Worthington Springs
and Brooker, had a bootlegger
that was the epitome of good
citizenship, supplying his clien-
tele with moonshine. He seemed
never to be caught, although he
had no visible means of support.
Maybe he was just smarter than
we knew.
Integrity comes easier for
some positions because of being
audited by outside auditors.
Some" employees in audited po-
sitions fear and dislike auditors,
but auditors are actually friends
of officials that are honest and
conform to the rules. Rather
than being on a witch hunt, as
often they are portrayed, they
come to ascertain that the offi-
* cial has operated in keeping with
rules and regulations.

still out there
Dear Editor: .
On Saturday, in downtown
Jacksonville, I witnessed one,..
of the best examples of what, a,,
father can do and be.
Several of our familiesv'
attended the St. Johns River
Run. This event is to raise"
funds for cancer. The father 'f-
am speaking of ran an earliepir
race and was waiting for his
boys to run the Junior River?.
Run, a one mile run just.;)
created for children at this,;
event. All of the 13 and under,,;;
age group boys lined up anO,,,,
the gun was shot. Several boys;,
tripped and some got hurt.
This man's child was one oC
the ones who fell. The boy wasg'
scratched up pretty good. To'&"
my surprise, this dad picked'd'
his son up, brushed him off
and ran the entire mile by his;i:
side, all the while filming orn
his video camera. !
This act of true heroism.,
from a father to a son is a great,,
example for all of us to live by.
So, hats off too you, Tony
Bellis, and thank you foir
inspiring all of those around""
you throughout your daily life.' '

"A Doctor's Confession to the Public...


Dear friend,L .
Let me tell you a story...
Twenty years ago I was a young man in my mid 20's and life is good, but I woke up one morning
and couldn't get out of bed. I had back pain before but this was different. My low back was "locked up" .-"
and pain is shooting down my spine if I try to move. Even.though I'm in a lot of pain I make it to my
family doctor's office and am prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxers and told to "Take it easy for a
while". That didn't help much. Finally, a friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The
chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then "adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn't hurt, it
actually felt good. I got relief, and I was happy again. It worked so well that I went to Chiropractic
College myself.
It's strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their back and neck problems. Also
they come to me with their headaches, migraines, chronic pain, sciatica, shoulder/arm pain, carpal tunnel
syndrome, whiplash from car accidents, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few.
Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can't really take the credit. Myj
confession is that I've never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure,
and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It's as simple as that!. -
You Benefit from an Amazing Offer Look, I know you're smart. You want to get to the cause of your problems, not just covert
them up with drugs. When you bring in this article, you will receive my entire new patient exam for $37. That's an exam, x-rays and '.a
report of the findings... the whole ball of wax, This can normally cost up to $250 or more, but please call right away because this offer.
expires at the end of the month, and I don't want you to miss out. By the way, "further care" is very affordable and you'll be happy t&.
know that I have affordable family plans. You see, I'm not trying to seduce you to come see me with this low start up fee, then to only
make it up with high fees after that. "Further Care" is very important to consider when making your choice of doctor. High costs camn
add up very quickly.
My assistants are Cheryl and Vivian, and they are bothreally great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try ourt
best make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called STARKE CHIROPRACTIC an&.

BHS grad Barrett
earns third Sun
Belt honor this
season
Bradford High School gradu-
ate Kasey Barrett, a senior
pitcher for Florida International
University, has been named Sun
Belt Conference Pitcher of the
Week for the third consecutive
week, as was announced by the
league office last week.
The accolade is the seventh of
its kind for her career.
Barrett is coming off another
phenomenal performance in the
circle as FIU first defeated East-
ern Michigan in before going 3-
2 at the USF Under Armour
Invitational in Clearwater. With
a 3-0 conference record and an
overall record of 15-4, the
Golden Panthers are off to their
best start since 2005.
Barrett appeared in five of six
games over the course of the
week, including a pair of start-
ing assignments in which she
posted a 1-1 record. She pitched
two complete games and re-
corded a pair of saves and one
shutout while striking out 31
batters, including a season-high
12 versus Fordham. Barrett al-
lowed just five hits and one un-
earned run in 20 innings of work
as the opposition combined for a
batting average of .075 when
facing her in the circle.

A popular draw at the fair was free chicken dinners.to all prepared by the Rotary
Club of Starke. At left, hungry fair visitors wait in long lines for dinners at the 1970
fair. The Rotary Club served more than 1,000 people that day in less than 30 min-
utes. ABOVE: Rotarians frying chicken at an early 1970s fair include (I-r) A.Y.
Covington, Gerald Williams, George Pierce, Gilbert Goldwire, Harold Davis, John
Torode and James Griffin.

Continued from Page 1B

"Passenger Charles Torode of
Starke received a cut on his
forehead," the Sun story re-
ported. "He and the other pas-
sengers, David Harper, 9, and
Adra Brown, were all shaken
up."
This 'was not the first.time4he
Bradford County Fair appeared
in one of the state's daily news-
.papers. The opening'of-the-fair -
in the 1960s and 1970s seemed
to be a regular story in the
Gainesville Sun, while Florida
Times-Union journalist Dennis
Borgman wrote of the record flat
of strawberries during the 1967
fair. The strawberries, entered
by Mrs. L.M. Norman of Heil-
bronn Springs, sold for $220
during the auction.
"Mrs. Norman said the berries
were grown in her husband's 25
,acres of strawberries in Law-
tey," Borgman wrote.

The Tampa Tribune even
wrote of the fair in 1970. Jour-
nalist Reg Crowder began his
story by comparing county fairs
throughout the state to an en-
dangered species.
"The Bradford County Fair
more than survives, though, as
what Fair Manager John Myers
calls a 'true county fair,'"
Crowder wrote.
Crowder's story would go on
to quote Myers as saying the
best strawberries in the world
could be found at the fair.
. -Why, they're the size of
plums," Myers was quoted as
saying.
Crowder also wrote of a cou-
ple of interactions children had
with reigning Miss America
Pamela Eldred.
"One little girl-obviously
mistaking Miss Eldred for Santa
Claus-presented her a Christ-
mas list, while an enterprising,
little boy asked to hug her, a
sentiment much applauded by
the men standing by."
