Four arrested in Speedville drug bust j


A BUSTED (Bradford-Union-Starke
Taskforce on Eradicating Drugs) in-
vestigation yielded information that a
residence in Speedville was the site of
illegal drug use and/or sales and that in-
formation led to four arrests on March
16.
Deputies from the Bradford County
Sheriff's Office executed a search war-
rant for the residence on the morning
of March 16 and found cocaine and a
variety of pills in the possession of the
people inside.
According to reports by BCSO Inves-
tigator Tommy Sapp, Bruce B. Donley,
18, of Melrose was found in posses-
sion of two grams of crack cocaine, 1.1
grams of marijuana and one Methadone


pill.
Donley was charged with possession
of cocaine, possession of a controlled
substance without a prescription and
possession of less than 20 grams of
marijuana. Bond was set at $31,000 and
he was released on bond March 17.
Jeremy J. Hutchinson,23,of Melrose
was allegedly found in possession of a
handgun and a box of 9mm ammuni-
tion, two grams of crack cocaine, 1.1
grams of marijuana and one Methadone
pill.
Hutchinson was charged with posses-
sion of less than 20 grams of marijuana,
possession of cocaine, possession of
a controlled substance without a pre-
scription and possession of a weapon


by a convicted felon.
Bond was set at $46,000 and he was
released on bond March 17.
Henrik Lee Pryor, 52, a resident of

7-period


day won't


happen


after all
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Talk of a seven-period day at the
high school ended last week at the rec-
ommendation of Superintendent Beth
Moore.
A survey at the high school on the
seven-period day returned mostly fa-
vorable responses from teachers. At the
middle school, several scenarios were
given to instructors, A seven-period day
came in dead last, and other scenarios
would be impossible to achieve because
of class size requirements, Moore said.
However, the deciding factor seems
to have been the additional cost of go-
ing to seven periods. Moore said one or
one and a half additional teaching po-
sitions would be required per school.
There might also be additional food ser-
vice and transportation costs, she said.
With the district facing a state fund-
ing cut that could be as high as $2.7
million, Moore couldn't justify the ex-
pense of additional class periods.
"I just honestly don't think at this
time we can spend any extra money On
something like this," Moore said.
Among the reasons cited for consid-
,ering more class periods were the high
school's graduation rate and the need to
provide students with additional oppor-
tunities to earn enough credits to earn
their diplomas. Historically, the num-
ber of class periods at the school seems
to have little correlation with the gradu-
ation rate, however.
In talking with other districts, Moore
said there are other strategies like coach-
ing struggling students that would cost
the district little or no money.
The district is also working to re-
vamp its dropout prevention program,
she said.


Graduation requirements becoming more rigorous


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


Budget cuts and scrutiny of teacher
performance are two issues the school
district is dealing with. Another is the
increasing rigor of high school gradua-
tion requirements.
Superintendent Beth Moore said
courses would need to be more chal-
lenging in order to prepare students
to meet the new requirements coming
down from the state.
The FCAT is changing, but account-
ability is not, said Carol CJyatt. director
of school improvement and account-
ability for the district. Students will be
required to demonstrate mastery of the


Next Generation Sunshine State Stan-
dards through their performance on the
FCAT 2.0 and various end-of-course
examinations that are coming into play
at the secondary level.
The changes are being phased in,
which could make things confusing for
students and parents. A chart tracking
the changes is included to help explain
the transition.
"The basic pattern is the first year
you have the end-of-course exam it be-
comes 30 percent of the grade for that
course, and then the second year the
end-of-course exam becomes some-
thing you have to pass." Clyatt said.
The most important thing to keep in
mind, perhaps, is that a student's gradu-


ation requirements will be based on
what year they enter the ninth grade.
For example, ninth-graders this year
will be the first to take an end-of-course
exam for algebra I. Though passing the
test is not required for graduation this
year, the exam will make up 30 percent
of the students' final grade in the class.
A ninth-grader this year will also
have to pass a geometry class to gradu-
ate. Next year's group will be the first
to take the end-of-course tests for ge-
ometry and biology for part of their fi-
nal grade, and they will have to pass the
algebra end-of-course exam to receive
credit for the class.
Each year and with each new group,
the requirements will change some-


what until all high school students are
required to pass end-of course tests in
algebra, geometry, biology and either
chemistry or physics in order to gradu-
ate. They will also have to eventually
take and pass an additional science
course as well as algebra II.
Other graduation requirements may
be added as well. For example, an end-
of-course exam in U.S. history should
be added around 2013-14, although it is
uncertain when a passing score on the
test will be required for a diploma.
ECAT math and science is going
away in high school in exchange for
these end-of-course tests, though they

will still be taken in grades three-
eight (only grades five and eight
for science). FCAT reading will
continue to be taken in grades
three through 10, however, and
passing the test in. 'tOe grade is
another graduation requirement.
FCAT writing will continue to
be offered in grades four, eight
and 10, and the score required
to pass the test is going up half
a point.
A major difference moving
forward will be the move to
computerized testing. This year
the district has had to implement
computerized testing at the high


school level for ninth and 10Oh-
grade math. Next year, that will
include seventh grade, reading,
Clyatt said, and as the years go
by more and more of the tests
will be taken on computers.
Other states have led the way,
and Florida is following suit,
she said. Some of the specific
requirements may be modified
over time, but end-of-course and
computerized examinations are
the future.
Assistant Principal Chad Farn-
sworth said he was worried how
things would go, but students
have been excited during practice
examinations. Taking the full-
length tests could be a different
story, but there are some advan-
tages as well, such as on-screen


tools that mimic test taking strat-
egies they've learned in class,
such as striking out responses to
narrow the field of possible an-
swers or pulling up a calculators
to quickly compute solutions to
math problems.
"I'm optimistic, and the kids
seem excited," he said.
Assistant Superintendent Lisa
Preva't said that because test re-
sults will be part of evaluating
teacher performance (see related
story), exams are being devel-
oped for all secondary areas, in-
cluding physical education, mu-
sic and art.
Although an emphasis on test-
ing persists, evaluations won't
be based on test scores alone,
she said, which has helped win


teacher support.
"There's other data that will be
used in addition to end-of-course
or FCAT data, which is very fair
and better for teachers and stu-
dents," Prevatt said.
She said graduation require-
ments are becoming tougher to
meeq. .becaUse .i '., harder. aa4-,

"That's why you see the addi-
tion of requirements for chemis-
try or physics, you see the addi-
tion of algebra II, because that's
preparing them to be ready for
postsecondary schooling," she
said.

Student struggling to pass the
FCAT at the high school or to
earn enough credits for gradu-
ation at Bradford High School
will now have a new option.
The public school district has
partnered with EdOptions Online
Academy to assist these students.
At the same time, the partnership
is another initiative designed to
help improve the BHS' gradua-
tion rate.
SEdOptions is a fully accredited
high school. It is for those who
prefer to attend a virtual school
or for students who want to en-
rich their traditional high school
experience by pursue additional
coursework.
EdOptions also has a .Safety
Net program for students Who are
in danger of not graduating with
their class. These could be stu-
dents who are behind on credits
or have a low grade point aver-


age. They can recover or earn the
credits needed in their final year
'of school to graduate on time and
without needing to earn passing
FCAT scores.
Bradford High 'School will
try to identify struggling juniors
for whom on-time graduation
is not at all certain. Those stu-
dents will have an opportunity
to take several classes through
EdOptions while pursuing other
courses at BHF. If toward the
end of their sernor year it looks
like the student will be eligible
for graduation under BHS' re-
quirements, then the high school
will recognize the credits earned
through EdOptions and issue the
diploma.
If, however, it looks like the
student will not graduate on time
at BHS, they will be officially
transferred to EdOptions, which
will still offer the opportunity to
receive a fully accredited. high
school diploma.

BHS will benefit because its
graduation rate hasn't been nega-
tively impacted.
The school board unanimously
voted to participate in the Safety
Net program through EdOptions,
which until recently was known
as the Blue Ridge Academy.
At the lower grade levels,
Prevatt said teaching teams are
using data to see what teaching
methods work and what needs
improvement. In addition, that
data is used to identify students
who are struggling with particu-
lar concepts and to provide inter-
vention. Reteaching troublesome
concepts to struggling students
help avoid a pattern of frustration
and failure, Prevatt said.
If after three levels of interven-
tion a student is still struggling,
that is an indication something
more may be going on, at which
time the data is turned over to
exceptional student education for
evaluation.

District working on teacher evaluation


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The school district is working
with school administrators and
teachers on developing an evalu-
ation system that will meet the
requirements of recently passed
legislation that will eventually
tie teacher retention and pay to
student performance.
Assistant Superintendent Lisa
Prevatt and Human Resources
Director Randy Whytsell recent-
1', attended a state academy on
teacher evaluation with school
level administrators and teachers
from Bradford County.
Prevatt sees exciting opportu-
nities in the proposed changes.
While the legislation is not uni-
versally embraced among the
state's educators, Prevatt pointed
out there has been less conflict
over the issue this year because
more people were brought to the
table to participate in the process
and develop the standards.
"That is creating transparency
and getting the information out
there to develop a process that
will be fair to teachers," Prevatt
said. "That has been our promise
Sto our group, that we want to stay
transparent, we want to work to-
gether to create something that
will be palatable to all of us."
She acknowledged that going
from paying educators based on
experience and tenure to perfor-
imance a huge move for the state.
Superintendent Beth Moore
said one of the reasons for partic-
ipating in Race to the Top grant
program was the knowledge that
education was moving in this di-
r ction. One of the standards to
be met for the funding was put-
ting an employee evaluation sys-
-tern in place, one that would link


pay.and performance by 2014.
Of course, the big question
has been how to measure teacher
performance. Prevatt said the
state has been looking at research
to develop an evaluation method.
There has been particular empha-
sis on the model developed by re-
searcher Robert Marzano.
If teacher evaluation is to be
linked to student learning gains,
Marzano advocates empowering
teachers by making them experts
in education through the use of
proven teaching strategies. Mar-
zano says as teachers incremen-
tally increase their expertise, so
too will they be able to increase
their ability to raise student learn-
ing gains.
Marzano has developed a
framework in which student
achievement sits atop a pyramid
that is based first on knowledge
of proven teaching strategies.
That is supported by the ability
to plan and prepare for instruc-
tion and on a teacher's self-eval-
uation, that is their ability and
willingness to both assess their
own performance and grow as
educators.
"It is something the teachers
who heard this felt much better
about, because it does give them
a lot of ownership and opportu-
nity," Prevatt said. The concept
of taking data and using it to fo-
cus and become teaching experts
is exciting, she added.
Also required is a sense of
collegiality and professionalism
in the field of education, or the
promotion of a positive environ-
ment, open communication and
professional development within
the school district.
According to Whytsell, each
of those domains for improving
teacher expertise form the foun-


District names Sunshine Scholar


dation for the district to realize
its primary goal of increasing
student learning.
"This evaluation process that
we're looking at-research
based-gives you a lot more to
work with, gives the principals
a lot more support," Whytsell
said.
In the past, an evaluation
could be very subjective. Under
the framework, principals serve
not just as evaluators but as in-
structional leaders, providing the
feedback needed for teachers to
grow. The principal is not just a
supervisor but a coach who turns
the evaluation process into a
valuable tool.
Perhaps most importantly, it
bases evaluation on more than
the results of a single standard-
ized test.
"What we really want is stu-
dent achievement," Whytsell
said. "This model gives you a lot
of substance and a lot of criteria
to base that on."
Teachers and administrators
will have a greater idea of what
is expected of them as theyivork'
to improve student achievement,
he added.
The district doesn't have to
adopt Marzano's model, but
it does have to adopt some re-
search-based model for teacher
evaluation that is based in part'
on student learning gains, Pre-
vatt said. The districtwide com-
mittee working toward this goal
includes representatives from
each school.
SB 736, also known as the Stu-
dent Success Act, was the first
bill sent to Gov. Rick Scott out
of the current legislative session.
In a controversial move, for-
mer Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed a
similar teacher performance bill

Lott re-elected chief judge


The Honorable Martha Ann
Lott has been re-elected for a
second term as chief judge of the
Eighth Judicial Circuit for the
two-year term beginning July 1,
2011. Judge Lott has served as
Chief Judge of the circuit since
July 1,2009.
The chief judge serves as the
chief judicial officer of the cir-
cuit, and maintains liaison in all
judicial administrative matters
with the chief justice of the Flor-
ida Supreme Court. The chief
judge develops an administrative
plan for the efficient and proper
administration of all courts with-
in the circuit. Additionally, Judge
Lott is responsible for the assign-
ment of judges to divisions and
the distribution of staff resources
to support those judicial assign-
ments throughout the circuit.
The chiefjudge responsibilities
also include overseeing the seven
courthouses within the Eighth
Judicial Circuit, and coordinat-
ing efforts with the six clerks of
court for implementation of new
and cost savings technologies
that provide for effective court
access.
Tie chief judge represent" the
circuit at both the local and state
level on all matters related to the

said, "We understand that it is
essential that we operate as effi-

tends to sign the new bill.
"This will help attract and re-
tain the best teachers," said Scott
in a press conference following
the Senate vote, adding that it
was part of his plan to increase


for $200. Crazy team names and
costumes are part of the fun, as is
bribing the judges by purchasing
a $50 bribe ticket. Teams also
raise money by bringing along a
cheering section, and everyone
can come out and support their
favorites. Tickets to attend are
$20, and you can contribute more
by sponsoring a letter for an ad-
ditional $20.

times. I believe we can strike
the right balance of keeping the
courts accessible to all people
in order to resolve disputes and
maintain public safety and still
continue to operate on less than
1 percent of the budget.
"I appreciate the opportunity
to serve the judges, the staff who
allows us to handle the overload


jobs in Florida.
Pay for performance will come
into play in a few years after the
evaluation system is implement-
ed, according to Moore. Teach-
ers who already have tenure will
have the choice to opt into the


of cases and, most of'all, the pub-
lic. That is what we are here for.
We only have to look to world

Budget woes challenge school district


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The budget outlook for the
school system is not bright, ac-
cording to Julee Tinsler, finance
director for the Bradford County
school system.
If Gov. Rick Scott's budget
is approved-with its recom-
mended 10 percent cut in educa-
tion spending-state money for
the district would dip below $20
million, Tinsler said. That's less
money than the district received
in 2003.
Tinsler called a recent meeting
of school finance directors from
around the state "very depress-
ing."
The state's recently revised
budget shortfall now stands at
$3.75 billion because of the slow
economic recovery, increasing
the pressure to make cuts.
With such a large hole, Tinsler
said Bradford County-with so
much employment from educa-
tion and corrections-could be
in for a "double whammy."
"We're not to the point yet
of making decisions on exactly
what's going to be cut," Tinsler
said. But having said that the


amount of money the district is
looking at losing-as much as
$2.7 million-is equivalent to 67
teachers.
Obviously, teachers would not
bear the full weight of the cuts.
Reductions would be made in
other areas as well. But the figure
Tinsler offered still puts perspec-
tive on just what that amount of
money means to the district.
The competing interests of
cutting spending but meeting
class size reduction standards is
a train wreck waiting to happen,
she said. On the one hand, the
state constitution mandates that
schools will stick to smaller class
sizes. On the other hand, as Tin-
sler likes to point out, the consti-
tution also says the state will ad-
equately fund public education.
"This should be very inter-
esting to see how this all works
out," she said.
Currently the district is meet-
ing class size standards. If it los-
es teachers to budget cuts, class
size will become an issue.
Falling state revenue from
the state is not new. Bradford
County,has been receiving less
and less money since 2007-08.
So far, however, the district has


been able to avoid layoffs.
If there is some room for hope,
it is that legislators don't seem to
have their knives quite as sharp-
ened as the governor. The House
is reportedly looking at an eight
percent cut in education spend-
ing, while the Senate is down
around 2 percent.
Also, the district's declining
enrollment seems to have trailed
off. While it will have to project
an additional loss of 100 students
when planning its next budget,
the district could recoup funds
if enrollment is higher than an-
ticipated when the student count
Stakes place in October.
S"Realistically, there are going
to be cuts. It's just how deep and
how painful the cuts are going to
be," Tinsler said.
With that said, the district is
still encouraging people to con-
tact their legislators to speak out
about the proposed funding cuts.
"It's one thing to hurt adults,
its another thing to hurt kids,"
Tinsler said. "While I understand
there's a giant hole in Tallahas-
see, it just breaks my heart to see'
it being filled on the backs of
kids."


Library funding threatened again


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

State funding for public librar-
ies is once again on the chopping
block.
A Senate subcommittee that
oversees transportation, tourism
and economic development has
proposed that state aid to librar-
ies be eliminated entirely.
The equivalent committee in
the House had already recom-
mended slashing aid by 60 per-
cent.
.In total, public libraries re-
ceiae around $21.2 million in the
state's $70-plus billion budget.
Libraries aren't asking for more
money in these difficult times,
advocates say, just to maintain
funding at current levels.
.Libraries are already facing
reductions in revenue from lo-
cal funds, and without state fund,
then Florida libraries lose federal

funds as well.
State aid was preserved in the
governor's proposed budget, and
there may be hope funding will
be returned to the legislative pro-
posals. Last year, aid was cut out
of the budget until the very last
minute. Advocacy from library
supporters was said to have made
the difference.
From early learning skills im-
bued to children to computer lit-
eracy classes given to the aging,
from access to books and media
to the ability to surf the Internet
for jobs, libraries are providing
more services than ever to their
patrons. Study after study has
shown the economic return on
investment that libraries provide.
But with funding cuts like
those proposed, branch libraries
around the state could be forced
to close their doors.

rector Robert Perone said the

elimination of state funding for
libraries would have devastat-
ing consequences for library
services here and throughout
Florida. Schools, colleges and
universities, too, would be hurt,
he said, because the funding used
to maintain databases and the
Florida Electronic Library would
be eliminated.
Cooperative programs between
libraries, like the New River Li-
brary Cooperative, would also be
unfunded.
Perone and librarians around
the state are encouraging their
supporters to contact Tallahassee
to speak about the importance of
libraries and the need. for slate
funding.

Education foundation reaching out to help schools


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The bradford County Educa-
tion Foundation has set about
raising its profile to do even more
good for area public schools.
Outgoing President Harry
Hatcher said the foundation's
goal is to support education in
the county but asked board mem-
bers in a recent meeting to think
bigger and hold a greater vision
for what they can do.
"If ever the local school sys-
tem needed more partners, it's
todayy" Hatcher said.
To that end, the foundation is
recognizing the school business
partner program, which is an ac-
cess point for businesses and oth-
er organizations to get involved
with the schools, both as finan-
cial sponsors and as volunteers.
In exchange, those who decide
to partner with the district will
, be recognized for their contribu-
tions. There will be multiple lev-
els on which to participate, and

cluding incentives that will help
promote their businesses.
As board member Cheryl
Canova pointed out, Santa Fe
College has gotten in on the act
to, giving money for a promo-
tional campaign that tells the
community that Bradford public
schools are "the right choice."
Among the advantages are the
district's partnership with the
college as well as its own cam-
pus for career and technical pro-
grams.
The education foundation also
recognizes the importance of
getting families involved in edu-
cation, Hatcher said. One way
they've done that is through the
scholastic fairs held in each of
the elementary schools. BCEF
invests thousands in giving each
student a $5 certificate they can
use to purchase books. The board
works with other civic organiza-
tions like Kiwanis, Altrusa and
Rotary to sponsor a family night
during the fair, which gets par-

March 8 and
15 felony court
dispostions
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Friend sells ATM PIN
for $5, gets 19 days
in jail, probation
Victoria Lee Starlin, 29, was
sentenced to 19 days in jail and
18 months probation after plead-
ing no contest to fraudulent use
f a credit cardnd petit theft.
According to a Bradford Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office report, on
Nov. 29, 2010, a Starke resident
reported her ATM card stolen
.from her purse. The victim told
a deputy that according to the
card's issuer, the plastic had been
used to make a $20 withdrawal at
Brooker's Kangaroo store after it
had been stolen.
The victim stated the only per-
son who knew the card's PIN
was Starlin. The deputy viewed
store video that showed a person
matching Starlin's description
withdrawing money from the
store's ATM machine around the
same time that the bank said the
post-theft withdrawal occurred.'
During questioning by two
sheriff's investigators, Starlin
admitted that the victim's son
had brought the ATM card to
her, and she agreed to withdraw
the money, giving the son $15
and keeping $5 for herself.

Dispute with neighbor

anger management
Hiram Lester Thacker, 30, was
sentenced to 20 days in jail, 12
months probation, and ordered
to undergo anger management
counseling after pleading no con-
test to possession of a firearm by
a felon and assault.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, on December 16,
2010, one of Thacker's neigh-
bors called the fire department
to report that Thacker, a citizen
of te United Arab Emirates, had
been illegally burning debris in
his backyard. Thacker responded


by digging a trench in the neigh-
bor's roadway, then declaring
"let them fire the first shot and
I'll fire the second."
But according to witnesses,
Thacker himself fired the first
shot, discharging a rifle into the
air. Deputies discovered that the
UAE national was a convicted
felon and arrested him.

Lawtey woman
swipes coins, sells to
convenience store
Linda D. Hankerson, 30, was
sentenced to 150 days in jail after
pleading no contest to petit theft.
According to a Lawtey Police
Department report, Hankerson
admitted to taking collectable
coins from a Lawtey home and
selling them to a local gas sta-
tion.

Leighann Helen Baker, 20,
was sentenced to three years drug
offender probation after pleading
no contest to five counts of issu-
ing a worthless check, one count

According to a Starke Police
Department report, in Septem-
ber 2010, Baker persuaded three
friends to cash five checks for
her ranging in amount from $175
to $350, all drawn on an account
that had been closed for over a
year. A Bradford deputy sheriff
wrote in a separate report that
in August and September, 2010,
Baker took seven checks from
the purse of another friend, made
them payable to herself or an ac-
complice, then cashed the checks
for a total of $445.
And in a third police report,
a Bradford deputy sheriff wrote
that on Nov. 29, 2010, Baker and
an accomplice, broke into a resi-
dence, stole a 52-inch Sony tele-
vision and pawned it for $200.

Police find pills
in pants,
Eric Lamafk Cruger, 35, was


sentenced to 18 months drug
offender probation after plead-
ing no contest to two counts of
possession of a controlled sub-
stance.
According to a Starke Police
report, in November 2010, Cru-
ger sold six methadone pills to a
confidential source of the BUST-
ED drug task force. In a subse-
quent search in December, police
found two Xanax pills hidden in
a cigarette pack in Cruger's right
front pants pocket.

Drug dealer

Marion Tyronne Lee, 54, was
sentenced to 180 days in jail af-
ter pleading no contest to selling
and dispensing drugs without a
prescription, possession of a fire-
arm by a felon, and possession of
Roxicodone.
According to a police report,

property and called the sheriff's
office.
During an interview with in-
vestigators, Todd claimed that
another man stole the items from
the barn. Todd admitted to help-
ing the accomplice fence the sto-
len property.


Extension agents busier than you may imagine


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

In an effort to feature the pro-
grams of the Bradford County
Extension Office, Director Tim
Wilson presented agriculture and
community resource develop-
ment extension agent Jim DeV-
alerio to the county commission
at its most recent meeting.
Covering everything in five
minutes proved to be an. impossi-
ble task. As extension faculty of
the University of Florida, agents
must prepare annual reports on
their activities. The condensed
version DeValerio presented
to the commission was still 21
pages long, but he was able to hit
some highlights.
Extension agents are charged
with developing innovative pro-
grams that address local needs.
One example would be Buzz
Busters, which involves adult
volunteers but also teaches chil-
dren about integrative pest man-


agement and insect life cycles
while tracking and targeting
mosquito populations. The ex-
tension also keeps those in ag-
riculture up to date on available
programs as well as regulations
and how to implement best man-
agement practices to meet those
requirements.
Information is distributed in a
number of ways,from workshops
and classes to newspaper articles
and information posted online at
bradford.ifas.ufl.edu. There are
also scholarly publications based
on their research in a variety of
journals.
DeValerio is responsible for
several newsletters sent through
the mail and e-mail, including
The Green Machine and Cutting
Edge. Each offers a wealth of
information on gardening, farm-
ing and more, including special
topics like invasive plants. Vol-
unteers contribute a great deal to
these publications and other pro-
grams, such as the Master Gar-


dener program. Those volunteers
are reaching out to the c'ommu-
nity and into the schools through
their work with the extension of-
fice, spreading an appreciation
for the natural world.
DeValerio said he couldn't get
it all done without, the help of
his volunteers and program as-
sistants.
In 2010 alone, 1,100 people
attended group teaching events
offered by the extension office
on top of the hundreds of phone
calls, office and client visits and
e-mails. Plus, visits to the exten-
sion's Web site have grown ex-
ponentially, from around 8,400
hits counted in 2008 to more than
48,000 in 2010.
Agriculture is but one of the
extension offices service area.

the Bradford Extension Office
offers or to .get involved, visit

continues now."


'Firewise'
tradition
On March 12, the Lakewood
Firewise Committee held its
ninth annual Firewise workday.
The purpose of the workday is to
help homeowners remove com-
bustibles that may ignite during a
wildfire and meet other Firewise
specifications.
Lakewood is the second oldest
nationally recognized Firewise
Communities/USA community
in Florida.
Residents of Lakewood and
members of The Florida Division
of Forestry prepared Lakewood
for a spring that has the potential
of becoming a very active fire
season.
"Normally fire activity in our
area peaks between April and
June," said Kurt Wisner, Divi-
sion of Forestry wildfire mitiga-
tion specialist. "This year we've
had more thanidouble the number
of fires than we had this time last
year. It's very important for peo-
ple to prepare a defensible space
a minimum of 30 feet around


In all. 34 .'olliicer~\' workers
chipped, mowed, cleared and
trimmed at homes in the com-
munity. According to Firewise
Committee Co-Chairman Bill
Allen, events like the Firewise
workday are an exercise in team-
work.
"We try to emphasize that
it is neighbor helping neigh-
bor so when we are finished at
your house, go with us to your
neighbor's house. It works real
well," Allen said. "The commu-
nity appreciates everything the
rangers do for us. Especially this
year when several of them just
returned from fighting the Iron
Horse Fire in Brevard County and
the rest were busy in our county
with fires such as the one recent-
ly in the Santa Fe Swamp."
After a fast-paced morning,
the workers met at the Lakewood
community boat ramp for a fried
chicken lunch, funded by the
Lakewood Improvement Asso-
ciation. Members of the commu-
nity brought salads, side dishes
and desserts.

Library accepts gift from Taber, local DAR chapter


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Members of the local Col.
Samuel Elbert Chapter of the
Daughters of the American
Revolution and family of the
late Mattie Rucks Taber
attended a ceremony at the
Bradford County Public
Library on March 22 to
officially announce the Taber
family's donation to the
library's genealogy room.
Taber, prior to her death on
Jan. 12, donated a collection of
200 books to the Col. Samuel
Elbert Chapter of which she
was a member and past regent.
The Daughters of the
American Revolution, in turn,
donated the books to the
Bradford County Public
Library, where they will be
permanently housed as
reference books. (Some books

"We're honored and thrilled
to be able to house this
collection and make it
available," Bradford County
Public Library Director Robert
Perrone said.
The addition of the books
approximately doubled the size
of the library's genealogy
section, Perrone said. The
books were catalogued
approximately three weeks
ago, but have already attracted
a number of library patrons.
Perrone said library staff
members have told him they
have to reshelve the books and
organize the area several times
a day.
"It is being used," Perrone

Michael Schofield, a Florida

"We are now equipped with
the technology to not only give
a physical home to the
collection and memorial, but to
also preserve it for as long as
the technology lasts,"
Schofield said. "They can be
digitized. In time, we will be
able to take 200 volumes,
digitize them and combine
them into a single device so
that they can be searched and
disseminated free-at no
cost- forever."
Perrone accepted the books
on the library's behalf on Dec.


28, 2010, which marked the
25'h anniversary of the Col.
Samuel Elbert Chapter of the
Daughters of the American
Revolution. The purchase of
new shelving has finally
allowed the books to be

"This will serve as a
memorial to the (Taber)

thoughtfulness to history-
keeping that history alive and
making genealogical resources
like this available to the people
in this county," Perrone said.

Editorial/Opinion


Telegraph, Times a Monitor Thursday, March 24, 2011 Page 4B



Second thoughts on budget


According to the news
media,many people who voted
for candidates advocating
reduction in governmental
expenditures are now having
second thoughts about their
voting. Legislative officials at
every level, from the
schoolhouse to the White
House, are whacking budgets,
much to the consternation of
people who are affected by the
cuts.
SParents of school children
are especially ticked off by
budgetary reductions,
reminding me of the old
saying, "Teacher, teacher,
don't whip me; whip that boy
behind that tree." Another old
story with a similar meaning
goes like this: A mother
carried her son to school and
told the teacher, "Little Johnny
is a sensitive child, and if he
misbehaves, don't spank him,
spank the child behind him,
and he will be scared into
behaving."
Parents (and non-parents)
should be concerned about the
school system, not just in
Florida, but in America as a
whole. Americans have been
told many' times over the
school system is failing our
children, and we have
responded by throwing more
money into the system. In fact,
the amount of money invested
in schools has increased 212
percent in real dollars (1960-
1995), adjusted for inflation.
In addition to increasing
funding, students pr .teacher
have been reduced from 26 to
17 in the past 16 years.
Another disturbing bit of
info4tnation regarding schools
is the ratio of teachers to other
school employees. In 1994,
fewer than 50 percent of
school employees were
teachers. Admittedly, the
school system currently.
maintains a large number of
bus drivers and maintenance
personnel, but schools have
added non-teaching positions
that call for review in light of
restricted budgets.
T. Shep Thomas, dean of
Florida school superintendents
with approximately 40 years'
tenure in Union -County,
reportedly had a single clerk in
his office, and his filing system
consisted of a series of
clipboards hanging on nails
around the one-room office.
Speaking of tough times in
the big depression of the


1930s, there was a brief period
when teachers were paid in
script. Times may be bad, but
they have been worse.
Former Secretary of
Education William J. Bennett
has provided some devastating
information concerning
American students in a time
where we're spending record
amounts of money on
education, including a 45-
percent increase in teacher
salaries (1960-1995). It isn't
that we are paying teachers too
much-it points out that
throwing money at a problem
isn't always the correct
answer.
High school graduates aren't
prepared for college; 30
percent of freshmen enroll in
remedial courses, and 80
percent of all colleges are
offering remedial courses to
accommodate the lack of'
preparation. Forty percent of
all 17-year-olds do not 'have
adequate math skills, and 60
percent are lacking in reading
skills necessary to hold a
production job in industry.
Discipline problems are
increasing, with 57 percent of
schools reporting poor student
conduct, and two thirds of
students reporting less than an
hour per night in homework.
Florida requires six times
the number of employees per
dollar to administer federal
funds as it does state dollars.
In Florida, 297 state
employees are required to
administer $1 billion in federal
funds, while 374 employees
oversee $7 billion in state
funds.
(I found the answer to this
perplexing question: The
federal government requires
reams of documentation for
every dollar spent as opposed
to state funds that are required
to comply with the needs of
.state auditors.-. It takes
additional personifel to meet
federal standards.)
The federal government has
spent $118 billion on its Title I
program, with the evaluation
that "the program has been
unable to lift the academic
level of poor students."
The following information is
provided for Bradford and
Union counties:
Rank in Florida: Bradford
325/667; Union 283/667.
Student/Teacher: Bradford
11/1,053; Union 22/571.

604; Union 623.5.
Change from prior year:
Bradford minus-13; Union
minus-22.
I graduated from Union,
County High School. In my
senior year, there were not
enough classrooms, so our
Lit/English class was held out
of doors under a large oak tree.
Richard Warren, brother to
Gov. Fuller Warren, was the
instructor. I'm of the opinion
that our class learned as much
under the tree as other classes
with air-conditioned rooms. I
am not advocating that bright,
air-conditioned rooms for
students should be abandoned,
but some of today's frills do
not necessarily lend
themselves to better learning.
Elected officials are in a
quandary. Voters obviously
want balanced budgets and
expenditures curtailed, but
they don't want a reduction in
services. The next election is
going to be quite interesting
when voters have to decide
between continued austerity
and balanced budgets, or'
unsustainable spending;
reminiscent of past
administrations. The liberal
voters in our society don't
realize how near our nation
came to becoming a "Banana
Republic." If we return to the
reckless spending of former
years, and insist on borrowing
our way out of debt, we'll
deserve what we receive.
Much of the information
contained herein came from
William J. Bennett, former
secretary of education under
President Ronald Reagan.
Bennett is founder of and
senior adviser for "Americans
for Victory over Terrorism,"
and has hosted the "Morning

bachelor's degree (Williams
College), a Ph.D in philosophy
(University of Texas) and law
degree (Harvard University).

Letters to the Editor


Cake fundraiser
is a success
Dear Editor:
The staff and residents at
Windsor Manor would like to
thank all who donated and those
who bought the wonderful cakes
for our fundraiser. Our goal was
met with all of your help. I per-
sonally want to thank each and
every one of you. A special
thank you to Lila and Tony Sel-
lars who always come through.

People are still
basically good
Dear Editor:
With all the terrible things re-
ported on various news pro-
grams and in various newspa-
pers across our great nation, one
has to be discouraged at the di-
rection our country seems to be
heading. It is, however, refresh-
ing to know that, even though it
is not reported as often, we still
have good, honest, hardworking
people that are trying to do the
right thing. I believe our young
people need to hear and read
about people doing the "right"
thing more often.
In a time when we have peo-
ple who spend their waking
hours developing plans on how
to defraud, scam, deceive and in
some cases, bring physical harm
to their fellow citizens, we still
have instances of caring and
compassion demonstrated. It's
truly sad that these instances do
not get the exposure that their
counterparts do.
I have lived and worked in
Bradford County for about 37
years and have always believed
in the good in people. Being
taught at an early age that peo-
ple are basically gobd, and if
they are exposed to proper-be-
havior and character as they are
developing, there is a good
chance that they too will exhibit
proper behavior and character.
That being said, I would like to
refer back to the first paragraph
where the word "refreshing"
was used. When I tell my.story
about something that recently
happened to me, most of you
will probably think that what


happened was insignificant, but
what happened reassured me
that even though I read and hear
of horrible things going on
around us, there are still some
wonderful things happening at
the same time.
My simple story: A few
weeks ago my checkbook was
lost, not stolen, but lost. No ill
intentions initially, but poten-
tially disastrous. It wasn't disas-
trous because of a large amount
of money that was associated
with my account, but because
the funds that were in that ac-
count were needed to support
my family and without them, I
would find myself in a very
binding position. Since this hap-
pened over the weekend, I
waited until Monday to report
the lost checks to my bank. I
went to the bank and spoke with
Jack Baker. After listening to
imy dilemma, Mr. Baker sug-
gested that he put some kind of
caution on the checks that I
thought were lost and if one of
these checks came through to be
processed, it would be checked
closely for proper signature.
This method would save me
from having to stop payment on
the range of checks I thought
were missing, saving me a fee.
A short time later, I was told
that someone who works with
our city's recreation department
found my checkbook in the
middle of the road and had it at
the recreation department at city
hall. I immediately went to city
hall to claim my checkbook.
Mary Johnson, an employee,
had my checkbook, and I of-

LB farmer
arrested for
drug trafficking
A Lake Butler man has been
arrested for drug trafficking
following an undercover
investigation by the Bradford-
Union-Starke Taskforce on
Eradicating Drugs (BUSTED)
and the Florida Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms.
After an undercover buy of
prescription pills, on March
19, Charles Howard, 57, of
Lake Butler was arrested for
allegedly dealing in
prescription drugs. Officers
executed a search warrant on
Howard's residence as well.
Allegedly more than 100 pills
with an estimated street value
of $1,500 was found. Howard
was subsequently arrested and
held on a $200,000 bond
before being released.

Flat tire leads to
LB man's arrest
Union County Sheriff's
Office Maj. Garry Seay
stopped to assist a motorist
with a flat tire on March 3, but
eventually wound up arresting
the driver instead.
James D. Willis, 24, of Lake
Butler was driving a pickup
with a trailer full of I-beam
steel when the trailer had a flat
tire. Seay saw the disabled
vehicle on S.R. 238 and
stopped to offer assistance.
Because the trailer was full
of I-beam metal and was being
hauled early in the morning,
Seay asked'for identification
from the two men present.
Willis did not have a driver's
license and the passenger had a
Florida ID card. *
Seay reported that when he
checked, he found that Willis'
license had been suspended.
Sea asked the men where the
metal had come from and
Willis gave him the name of a
man who Willis said owned a
shed that was being torn down.
Seay contacted the man, but
he said he didn't have a shed
b .,dto ,,.d,wn.and he didn't
give'Wilfis any I-beam metal.
ISeay spoke to the men again
and the passenger said he
didn't know anything about the
metal, he was just helping to
change the tire on the trailer.
Willis then told Seay the metal
came from somewhere in
Lawtey.
LSeay had the trailer
impounded until the ownership
of the metal could be
determined. Further
investigation revealed both the
metal and the trailer had been
removed from Shadd Trucking
without the owner's
permission.
;Willis was charged with
driving while' --license is
suspended or revoked and
grand theft.

LETTER
Continued from Page 4B

evdlyone, they provide impor-
tarit insight and information
critical to our success.
Tuesday began before dawn.
Leaving Fernandina Beach just
before 6 a.m., I was able to
rfike the three-hour drive apd
arrive with time to spare for my
'9:30 a.m. PreK-12 Appropria-
tiqns Subcommittee.
Committee Chair Rep. Marti
Coley shared her first draft of
the budget which focused on
preserving funding for the class-
room. Unfortunately, the pri-
mary element in the PreK-12
budget is in the Florida Educa-
tion Financing Program (FEFP)
budget line item. Of the general
revenue funding, K-12/FEFP
represents nearly $8.3 billion out
of .$8.776 billion funding. Other
itemns in the PreK-12 Budget
include"
Early learning
S $368.6 million
Education Media & Technology
$3.9 million
State Board of Education
$51.7 million
Federal Grants
S $12.9 million
State Grants K-12/Non FEFP
$52.9 million
the K-12/Non FEFP State
Grants include such good pro-
grams as Take Stock in Chil-
dren. YMCA State Alliarice,
Florida Alliance of Boys and
Girls Clubs, and Big Broth-.
ers/Big Sisters. In the first draft
of he budget, these programs all
received a 50-percent reduction
in funding. Other programs sus-
tained a 100-percent cut in this
first budget. I know the'mem-
beis will work hard to preserve
"Icvel funding" but this year the
economic conditions will bring
serious reductions.
'he Federal Grants allocation
is tightly controlled by the fed-
eral government. A significant
portion of these funds support
the school lunch arid breakfast
programs.
The bottom line reflects a
7.66 percent reduction in per
student funding from the last
budget year. This number in-
cludes factors such as increased
enrollment. reduced tax rolls,
loss of stimulus funding and
exclusion of the .25 supermajor-
ity millage in the FEFP funding
formula. These numbers make
crafting a budget that does not
reduce classroom spending near
impossible.
Following my K12 appropria-
tions committee meeting, I met
with representatives from Edi-
son State College and Practitio-
ners Resource Network. The
highlight of the morning was
visiting with members from Liv-


for violation of probation.

Nora Heuton, 55, of
Keystone Heights was arrested
March 16 by CCSO deputies
for felony DUI, refusal to
submit to a sobriety test and
possession of a controlled
substance without a
prescription.

George Joseph Lajoie, 24, of
Lake Butler was arrested
March 11 by UCSO Deputy
Whitehead on two Columbia
County warrants, one for
driving while license is
suspended or revoked and one
for driving without a valid,
license. Total bond was set at
$1,014.50.

Michael Lanehart, 47, of
Keystone Heights was arrested
March 18 by CCSO deputies
on warrants for possession of
less than 20 grams of
marijuana, possession of
narcotic equipment and
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon.
Richard Randall Mann, 33,
of Glen St. Mary was arrested


ing Waters Fellowship from
Yulee. They made the trip to
Tallahassee for the express pur-
pose of praying for our state
leaders in government. It was a
blessing to be able to share with
them the concerns that I have for
our state and to have them pray
for wisdom and courage.
Their leadership is part of an
organized effort to have
churches from all across the
state to come to. the Capitol to
offer prayers on'"behalf of our
state and its leaders. Many
groups come to our Capitol with
all sorts of petitions and requests
and only this year are we seeing
our churches coming quietly to
offer their petitions for wisdom
ahd guidance in our great state.
Tuesday afternoon at 2:45
p.m. we were on the House
Floor for the second reading of
HB7019, the Teacher Quality
Bill. We had roughly three hours
of questions and adjourned ear-

probation for an originals
charge of possession of
marijuana.
Gary Norman, 24, of

instrument, uttering a forged


lier than expected at around 6
p.m. We had been scheduled to
be on the house floor until 11:45
p.m. The debate was on point
and respectful and the. teacher
quality bill was adopted.
Wednesday morning began
with desk work at 7:30 a.m. and
a 9 a.m. subcommittee meeting
in Rulemaking and Regulation.
We passed out four bills, mov-
ing them to their next committee
stop and spent quite a bit of time
talking about "rules of concern"
within the Department of Educa-
tion Rehabilitative Services
area. After much questioning, I
learned that Florida statute re-
quires DOE to "monitor" data
and the department wants to
move away from having the
providers fax the forms. Instead,
for about three years they have
been "debating" on how to eas-
ily get the providers to use a

web-based program to enter the
data in themselves. The provid-
ers told us it takes 45 minutes to
enter a claim and it is cost pro-
hibitive. DOE says it should
only take 10 minutes to enter a
claim and that instead of having
the providers perform the data
entry effort, they can ask the
carriers to do the work.
When I asked the question,
"What do you do with the data?"
and "What decisions do you
make with this data?", they
didn't have an answer, other
than to say that statute requires
them to "monitor."
It is unacceptable for state
agencies to create requirements
that result in additional work-
load and a drag on productivity
when we have no clear under-
standing of why we are collect-
ing the data in the first place.
Why is the DOE staff not alert-
ing the Legislature that they are
not using the data and request a
change in statute? Why have we
been talking about this for three
years? These are all questions
that I had a chance to raise in the
committee.
I suggested that we do a word
search on the word "monitor"
and have each agency answer
the question, "how are we using
the data?" I wonder how\ many
other examples like this one
exist in our state government.
Later that morning, I met with
representatives from AT&T and
Trinity School for Children lo-
cated in Tampa. After lunch, it
was back on the house floor for
the third reading of the Teacher
Quality Bill. Speaker Cannon
had scheduled 12 hours for de-
bate. We all thought it would be
a long evening. I was surprised

p.m.
There is never enough time
for all that must be done during
the session while in the Capitol
Complex. The offices are fre-
quently busy with meetings,
lobbyists and others working
their issues and looking for solu-
tions. The early passage of the
Teacher Quality Bill allowed me
time to prepare the presentation
for Saturday's Education Town
Hall and complete a White Pa-
per on Northeast Florida State
Hospital privatization issues. I
finally finished my work around
A10 p.m. and left the Capitol.
Thursday began with meet-
ings with Chairman Proctor and
a first generation limited-income
college student. Then it was
time to attend the Education
Committee, where we talked
about higher education issues.
My main focus for the day
was to meet with individual
house members about my con-
cerns regarding thle possible
privatization of North East Flor-
ida State Hospital. I met with 10
individuals this single day to
review the analysis contained in
the While Paper. Basically, the
argument is this: NEFSH oper-
ates at a lower cost per day and
cares for more medically com-
plex individuals: so where are
the benefits of privatization?
The facts are clear that privatiza-
tion does not work as a budget
reduction exercise for NEFSH in
part due to the fact NEFFSH is
already the low cost provider in
Florida.
I renewed my focus again on
Friday with three more meetings
to discuss my privatization con-
cerns. Larry Williams, my dis-
trict aide, did a great job jug-
gling the schedule so I could
meet with so many members in
such a short time. The face to
face meetings with members are
critical to shaping the issues
around an emerging debate, like
privatization. It is really in de-

to the issues we face and easy
slogans sound good but if the
details do not back it up then it
is not good state policy.
The week ended with the Se-
lect Committee on .Government
Reorganization. We had a pres-
entation by the new Department
of Children and Family Secre-
tary, David Wilkins. What was
interesting as he discussed pri-
vatization and his plan to make
$22 million in reductions, he
stated that his plan was to seek a
seven percent reduction from the
private facilities as well. I am
sure this was news to many and
again makes you wonder how
they will manage a seven per-
cent reduction and then deliver
another 6-14 percent reduction
to take over responsibility at the
state run facilities. The Select
Committee will seek major pol-
icy change to reorganize the
state economic development
efforts as well as the health de-
partment.
On Friday afternoon state
economists released the new
revenue estimates, adding $135
million to the budget shortfall.
The final number we will use to
craft the 2011-12 state budget
reflects a $3.75 billion shortfall.

ANTICIPATION HIGH AS OHIO VALLEY GOLD &


SILVER REFINERY OPENS FOR BUSINESS NEXT WEEK

IN GAINESVILLE!


By David Morgan
STAFF WRITER

Been following the gold and silver market
lately? Well if you have a jewelry box, a
lock box full of gold or a coffee can full
of old coins, you should be, according
to Ohio Valley Refinery spokesperson
John Miller. "The gold and silver markets
have not been this strong for over 30
years" said Miller. Typically when the
U.S. dollar is weak and the economy is
flat, gold and silver markets soar. "That's
good news if. you are sitting on a' few
gold necklaces or an old class ring" says
Miller.
Next week, starting Tuesday at
9am and every day nextweek through
Saturday, the Ohio. Valley Refinery is
setting up satellite refinery right here
in Gainesville at ; the Courtyard
by Marriott. During their 5 day stay,
anyone can bring gold, silver or platinum
items and turn'.them in for immediate
payment, explains John Miller.."Just about
.everybody has some amount of gold or
silver just lying around collecting dust and
this week anybody can sell theirs direct to
our refinery. Typically selling direct to a
refinery is reserved for- larger' wholesale
customers like jewelry stores, pawn shops
and laboratories" says Miller. "We are
changing how. business is done," he
explains "we want to do business with
everybody so we took our business to
the streets". "Our teams visit various
cities around the country hosting 5 day
events and allowing the general public
to take advantage of our services. "The
turnout has been overwhelming" says
Miller. "Usually each day is busier than
the previous day. It seems once people'
come to us. and sell something, they are
so amazed what an old ring'or gold coin
is worth, they go home and start digging


Above: Refinery representatives will be on hand next week starting Tuesday through
Saturday to purchase all gold, silver and platinum items, as well as coins. Public welcome


around for more and telling relatives,
friend..and .Qeigib.cis. .It'.sJike a feeding
frenzy by the third day. People line up with
everything from gold jewelry to sterling
silver flatware sets to old coins. I think
during this bad economy everybody can
use extra money, but most people say they
are taking advantage of selling direct to
our refinery because of the higher prices
we pay".
During this special event, anyone is
welcome to bring all types of gold, silver
and platinum to the refinery and turn it
in for instant payment. The types of items
they will accept include all gold jewelry,
gold coins, gold ounces, ,dental gold,
old coins made before 1965 including
silver dollars, halves, quarters and dimes,
anything marked "sterling" including
flatware sets, tea pots, silver bars, silver
ounces and all industrial precious metals.
What should you expect if you go
to the event to sell your gold and/or
silver? Just gather up all gold, silver and


platinum in any form. If you are not sure
if it's gold or silver, bring it in and they
will test it for free. When you arrive at
the event you will be asked to fill out a
simple registration card and will be issued
a number. Seating will be available.
When your' number is called you will be
escorted to a table where your items will
be examined, tested and sorted. This only
takes a few minutes, using their expertise
and specialized equipment. Items will be
counted and/or weighed. The value of
the items will be determined based on
up to the minute market prices. Live feeds
will be available at the event displaying


current market. prices' cif all precious
metals. If you choose,,tp sell your items,
they will be bagged and tagged and you
will be escorted to the cashier to collect
your. payment. Waiting time to sell your
items may range from just a few minutes
to 1 hour, so bring something to read.
If you are the owner of a jewelry store,
pawn shop, dentist office or a dealer you
are encouraged to call ahead to make
an appointment with the smelt master to
discuss their'special dealer programs.
They can be reached during Refinery
hours at (217) 787-7767.
Ohio Valley Refinery will open for
business Tuesday from 9am-6pm. The
event continues every day through next
Saturday. No appointment is needed for
the general public.

SILVER AND GOLD COIN PRICES

UP DURING POOR ECONOMY.


Ctl eQ r s n dEnthusiasts in
Oelrvtle with $200,000

STAFF WRITER

Got Coin? If might be just. the time to
cash in. Next -week, starting Tuesday
a'nd continuing through Saturday, the
International Collectors Association in
conjunction with' the Ohio Valley Gold
& Silver Refinery will be purchasing all
types of silver and gold coins direct from
the public. All types are welcome and the
event is free.
Collectors will be on hand to identify
and sort your coins. Then the quality or
grade will be determined..The ,.tter the
grade the more they are worth, according
to collectors I talked to. With the silver
and gold markets high, prices of older
coins are too. Any coins minted before
1965 in the U.S. are 90% silver, except
nickels and pennies.
The'coin's worth is determined by the
rarity arid the grade. Old silver dollars
are worth a great premium right now,
even well worn heavily circulated ones
are bringing good premiums. Franklin
and Kennedy half .dollars, Washington
quarters, Mercury and Roosevelt dimes
are all worth many times the face value.
While older types like Seated Liberty,
Standing Liberties, and Barber coins are
worth even more.
Gold coins are' really worth a lot
right now, according to Brian Eades of
the International Collectors Association.
"This country 'didn't start minting coins
until 1792" says Eades. He explained,
"Before that, people would -trade goods
using gold dust and nuggets.. Some
shop keepers would take more gold
than needed to pay for items purchased.
There was no uniform system of making
change."
The government opened the .first
mints and began distributing the coins
in 1792. By the beginning of the 19th


ITEMS WE WILL
ACCEPT INCLUDE:

Scrap Jewelry
Dental Gold
Sterling Silverware
Sterling Silver
Tea Sets
Silver Dollars
All Pre-1965 Coins'",

All Forms of Platinum'


century, coins and paper currency were
wide spread and our monetary system
was here to stay. In 1933 Roosevelt
required all banking institution's to turn
in all gold coins. Once all banks turned
in this gold, the president raised the
gold standard from $20.00 per ounce to
$33.00 per ounce. This was his way of
stimulating the economy during the great
depression. However, gold coins were
never redistributed after the recall. But not
all gold coins were turned in. "Many folks
during that time didn't completely trust the
government and chose to keep their gold"
said Eades.
7 These gold coins are sought after by
collectors today and bring many times
the face value. Any gold coins with the
mint marks of CC, D or O will bring nice
premiums. Collectors at the event will be
glad to show you where to look. Other
types of coins will also be purchased
including foreign coins, Indian cents, two
cent pieces, half dimes, three cent pieces
and buffalo nickels to name a few.
Collectors warn people against
trying to clean their coins, as significant
damage can be done and the coin's value
lessened.

LOCAL RESIDENTS ARE READY TO CASH IN!

STAFF WRITER

Hundreds of phone calls from local residents poured in to the corporate office of the
Ohio Valley Gold and Silver Refinery this week-inquiring about items to be purchased

to get a great value for their items.
