High praise for hard work as firefighting continues

Telegraph Editor

County officials have given firefight-
ers-volunteer and otherwise-high
praise for their work fighting a wildfire
that has been burning in southern Brad-
ford County for two weeks.
"I wanted to let you know how hard
they've been working. It's unbeliev-
able," Emergency .Management Direc-
tor Brian Johns told the county com-
mission last Thursday night.
"They've been out there every day
and every night," he continued, saying
some of the volunteers even get offend-
ed if they aren't called on often enough
to fight the fire, which is located in the
Santa Fe Swamp conservation area.
"They have done a tremendous job,".
Johns said, explaining they were at
work last Thursday evening setting up
sprinklers to protect areas that had not
burned by the Santa Fe 11 fire as the
Division of Forestry is calling it.
When wind picks up and changes
the direction of the fire, Johns said all
of the firefighters are put on that side,
with truck stationed at residences when
necessary to prevent the loss of homes.
Local firefighters have been working
with the Division of Forestry and mu-
tual aid workers from other counties to
get the job done.
Firefighters have not been alone
in the effort. Sheriff Gordon Smith
thanked firefighters as well as EMS
workers, law enforcement and the road
department. Smith also said members
of the business community had stepped
up to supply a lot of the needs of the fire
and emergency crews.
Commissioner Danny Riddick
thanked those groups as well, but un-
like some who are being paid to do their
job, the volunteers are just that-volun-
teers. He bragged on their commitment
to serve for free and said it's amazing
what they do.
He said they are on scene early in
the morning and late at night, driving
around to check that the fire hasn't
spread outside of the containment area.
Some are even staying at the Theressa
Community Center so they can be right
by their trucks if called into action.
When water being used from a reten-
tion pond at the old dump stopped flow-
ing because of a pump failure, Riddick
said he witnessed a firefighter swim
into that pond to hook up some lines
and get the water flowing again.
"Those guys will do anything," he
said. If you see a firefighter, thank
them for what they do, he added.
Commissioner Doyle Thomas said

unless you've seen the volunteers at
work, you just don't know what they're
capable of. For that many people to get
along so well and work toward a com-
mon goal is also remarkable, he added.
Commission Chairman Eddie Lewis
the firefighters put their lives in danger
and ask nothing in return.
"They will do it, they won't back up
from it. There's not one who would
back up from it, and I appreciate that,"
Lewis said. "We need to support them
and we need to remember them in our
That gges for EMS, law enforcement
and others who are watching out for the
firefighters, Lewis said, and those from
forestry, the city of Starke and other
counties who have been there to back
up Bradford County.
Not just anyone can do the job, and
Sheriff Smith pointed out that the vol-
unteers train hard and meet high stan-
dards to be able to do what they do.
They are true, hardworking Americans
who sacrifice in order to serve, Smith
Of course, firefighters sacrifice sleep
time, time with their families, even time
at their paying jobs, to do uncomfort-
able and dangerous work. The death of
two firefighters working the Blue Rib-
bon fire in Hamilton County this week
serves to highlight just how much fire-
fighters are risking to protect their com-
Like Lewis said, they are willing to
sacrifice all.
Others fighting fires around the state,
including some local volunteers, have
been injured and treated for heat ex-
haustion and smoke inhalation. In light
of the tragedy, Bradford County Emer-
gency Management's Michael Heeder
said firefighters are exercising addi-
tional care.
"The biggest threat facing the fire-
fighters are the snags-dead trees that
continue to smolder and fall across the
containment lines threatening to cause
the fire to spread outside the lines-and
the weather conditions that could push
a flare-up and spread the fire quickly,"
he said in a release Tuesday.
Over the weekend, the state realized
the size of the Santa Fe 11 fire had been
overestimated. Instead of'6,500 acres,
the estimate was rolled back to 5,700
On Tuesday, the total size of the
Santa Fe swamp fire was estimated at
5,800 acres. Work was concentrated on
strengthening the containment lines and
intentionally burning areas of concern
to reduce the amount of'fuel and pre-
vent a potential flare-up from getting

out of hand.
The fire was said to be 60 percent
contained. With forecasts of windy
and dry conditions and little or no rain,
however, there were fears the situation
could worsen.
In spite of the drought conditions,
that could be seen as a mixed blessing,
since it also means no thunderstorms
with lightning strikes like those that
have ignited so many fires throughout
the state.
Lightning isn't responsible for all
of the fires, however. Johns told the
county commission that several look
suspicious and are being investigated.
According to a press release from the
Division of Forestry, the cause of fires
at C.R. 227 one mile from U.S. 301
(Hayroll Fire), Southwest 136h Avenue
and Southwest 142"n Avenue were list-
ed as "incendiary." Other fires listed in
Bradford County, including the Santa
Fe 11 fire, were attributed to lightning.
Smoke is still an issue. It has some-
times resulted in zero visibility on roads
in the affected areas. Southeast 11" Av-
enue remained closed to everyone but
residents. Although C.R. 21B was re-
open to the public, drivers were told to
be cautious when smoke was covering
the roadway.
2011 is becoming one of the worst
years for wildfire on record. According
to DOF, 3,602 wildfires have burned
more than 197,000 acres in the state as
of Tuesday. In the Suwannee Fire Dis-
trict, which includes Bradford County,
372 fires have burned nearly 7360
acres. That includes at least six fires in
Bradford County.
Johns didn't indicate there was much
hope that the county would receive
FEMA funds to reimburse the costs
of fighting the fire. There seems to be
a higher threshold for approving such
aid, including property damage, which
Bradford County has managed to avoid.
That's due to the work of the firefight-
ers, Johns said.
Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state
of emergency. Many counties, includ-
ing Bradford, have bur bans in effect,
campfires have been banned on state-
controlled lands, and DOF is not issu-
ing burn permits.
Residents close to any active fires
should be aware of floating embers
setting spot fires on their property and
have hoses and sprinklers ready should
small grass fires ignite. Everyone
should avoid outdoor burning.
According to forestry, it will take
several days of steady, drenching rains
to relieve the current fire risk through-
out the state.

Rape defendant signs plea

Telegraph Staff Writer

Joseph Robert Kelley, who was fac-
ing up to 30 years in prison for his al-
leged role in the gang rape of a 15-year-
old Lawtey.girl, will get no jail time
under the terms of a plea agreement he
signed last week.
Under the terms of deal, the Brooker
resident pleaded no contest to misde-
meanor battery after being arraigned
last year on two felonies: sexual bat-
tery on a physically helpless person and
lewd and lascivious battery committed
on a person under 16 years of age.
Kelley, who turned 20 this month,
was arrested in February 2010, accused
of sexually assaulting a girl after she
passed out during a party. The Bradford
County Sheriff's Office also arrested
18-year-old Gaige Lee Griffis and
17-year-old Thomas Drew Reddish in
connection with the attack. Griffis still
faces sexual battery charges. Reddish's
court records are sealed because he was
17 at the time of the alleged crime.
Prosecutors spent the last 17 months
sifting through the statements of up to
14 people to determine what precisely
happened on the last Friday of Febru-
ary 2010 in a doublewide off C.R. 225,
three miles west of Lawtey.
That evening, one Bradford High
School student, took advantage of out-
of-town parents and hosted a get-to-
gether for classmates.
According to Capt. Brad Smith of
the 'Bradford County Sheriff's Office,
shortly before 11 p.m., one of the par-
ticipants, a 15-year-old female, told
friends she had enough.
"She had too much to drink, had ac-
tually gotten sick," he said.
Smith said the girl needed help and
accepted assistance from some men
at the party, thinking "that they were
helping her back to a bedroom to go to
The girl told investigators that after
reaching the bedroom she passed out
and a%%oke to find the three men as-
saulting her.
According to the sheriff's office, that
claim was backed up by at least one of

the accused. On the Sunday following
the party, deputies questioned Kel-
ley. According to a report filed by Sgt.
Kevin Mueller, the Brooker man admit-
ted having sex with the girl while she
was unconscious. Mueller wrote that
Kelley also incriminated his two co-
Deputies picked up Griffis the fol-
lowing Wednesday, but according to a
sworn affidavit filed by Mueller, Griffis
admitted to nothing. However, in that
same report, the investigator wrote that
while questioning Reddish, the 17-year-
old said he and his co-defendants had
sex with the girl while she was intoxi-
cated, but not unconscious.
Shortly after their arrests, all three
defendants posted bond. From March
2010 through June 2011 the State At-
torney's Office took sworn statements
from the more than one dozen students
who attended the party, and sorted
through contradictory versions of what
Also, over the past year, claims and
counterclaims about the events within
the doublewide have surfaced on the
Internet, prompting prosecutors to trace
down the sources of those posts and in-
vestigate their accuracy.
Under the terms of his plea agree-
ment, Kelley will testify against his
co-defendants. He is scheduled to be
sentenced June 28, and by pleading to
battery, under state statute, could be
sent to jail for up to one year. How-
ever, according to the plea agreement,
he would get no jail time, and instead
be sentenced to 12 months probation.
The State Attorney's office will also
recommend withholding adjudication,
and Kelley promised to have no further
contact with the victim.
State Attorney spokesman Spencer
Mann refused to comment on the spe-
cifics of the state's plea offer, citing the
open cases against Griffis and Reddish.
"As in all cases there are strengths
and weaknesses that the state has to
contend with," he wrote in an email.
"This case is no different. The defen-
dant received the appropriate sanctions
in line with his charge."

Highway Patrol station closing in Starke

Telegraph Editor

The Florida Highway Patrol is
closing up shop in Starke as of
July 1.
The closing of the local sta-
.tion is the result of state budget
cutbacks, according to FHP's Lt.
Blum. One person-the office
:clerk-will be out of ajob.
Outside of the need for the
public to turn elsewhere when re-
questing reports-or other admin-
istrative services, there should be

no impact to FHP operations. Of-
ficers will still be in the area pa-
trolling and responding to calls.
For administrative services,
the public can turn to the FHP of-
fices in Gainesville, Jacksonville
or Lake City.
Blum indicated the Palatka of-
fice could also be closed, but that
decision is not final. ,
The Florida Department of Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
owns the office building next to
the Bradford County Fairgrounds
where the local FHP office has

been housed. Blum was uncer-
tain of its future, but said it might
remain open for use by FHP of-
ficers working in the area.
In Gainesville, the FHP patrol
station is located at 6300 N.W.
13'" St., and the phone number
is 352-955-3181. In Jackson-
ville, the FHP station is located
at 7322 Normandy'Blvd., and
phone number is 904-695-4155.
In Lake City, the FHP station is
located at 1350 U.S. 90 West,
and the phone number is,386-

City seeking recreation proposals

Telegraph Editor

Another city workshop on rec-
reation earlier this month began
with a statement by Mayor Tra-
vis Woods, who said in light of
Recent discussions, he wanted the
conversation to remain positive.
Everyone present, he said, was
there to do the best the city could
for its recreation program.
"We're here to work together,
.and we're here to work toward
-aving a recreation department
ihat the city of Starke can afford
and what is best for our children,"
Woods said.
:.Facing a revenue shortfall in
4i.-e coming year, what the city
has decided to do is let groups
bid on taking over portions of the
recreation program.
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson worked on the re-
c.i4est for proposals language
fbr the city, but he also worked

:McMillian to project next year's
Budget. The proposed budget for

,of which-would be covered by
participation fees. The remain-
ing $229,600, the city of Starke
would have to cover, and of that
amotint, the total personnel-relat-
ed costs are $179,600. That's 78
percent-of the city's costs and 53
percent of the entire budget.

Summer has arrived and with

we can save enough for next win-

reproductive difficulties. Cattle

city's advertisement would have
to describe for the city what they
will be willing to provide and
how they intend to provide it.

about recreation, and Woods in-
terrupted to repeat there would

Oklahoma State University have
demonstrated that bulls experi-
encing heat stress have reduced
conception rates compared to
non-stressed bulls.
To prevent reduced conception
rates, producers who breed dur-
ing summer months may want
to consider moving the breed-
ing season to a different time
of the year. However, careful
consideration should be given
to align marketing options with
operation goals. Producers who
plan to continue breeding during
summer months can help reduce
effects of heat stress and over-
all stress by providing adequate
shade, water and an effective in-
ternal and external parasite con-
trol strategy.

missioner Danny Nugent tried
to explain that the commission
was considering its options, and
if it didn't seek proposals from
groups willing to contract to
provide recreational services, it
wouldn't know what all of the
options are.
Janice Mortimer asked among
other things what would happen
to the two full-time recreation
employees if the city awards a
contract to one or more private
groups. Commissioners said that
had not been discussed.
On Tuesday night, June 22, the
commission voted 4-1 to move
ahead with advertising a call for
recreation proposals. Commis-
sioner Carolyn Spooner, feeling
there was need for additional
discussion and having only just
received a copyof the material to
be advertised, cast the dissenting
vote. Advertisement will begin
as soon as next week.

Lawtey proud of its new pumper

Lawtey Fire Rescue received a
new grant-funded fire engine on
June 10 to replace an old 1987
engine. The Firefighters Assis-
tance Grant Program provided
$300,000 toward the purchase,
while the city of Lawtey provid-
ed a $15,000 match.
Lawtey Fire Chief Mike
Brown said this was a blessing
from God.
"I have prayed that the Lord
would bless us with this new en-
gine and prayers were answered,"
Brown said. The department's
faith is reflected with the "In
God We Trust" motto painted
on the side of the pumper, and
its patriotism is displayed in the

Bradford Middle School held
its annual award ceremony June
:9. Straight A awards were giv-
en to seven students who kept
their grades up all year Tristin

Frazee's legacy as teacher lives on through Gina's Kids

Regional .\ewii.Sports Editor
In life, Gina Frazee had two
children, but liked to claim all
of the students she taught as her
Frazee's passing will not stop
the impact she made in kids'
lives, as family members have
taken steps to ensure her memory
lives on in the form of the adop-
tion ministry "Gina's Kids."
"I think that's part ofthe reason
for her pi,;n - -i try to help the
children of the world," said Terry
Brown, Frazee's brother.
Bill McRae, who is married'
to Frazee's twin sister, Tina,
said part of what made Frazee,
who died July 7, 2010, after be-
ing diagnosed with colon can-
cer, such a good teacher was
her understanding, that teaching
is about forging relationships.
Through those relationships,
Frazee showed her genuine care
.for those she taught.
"Students whom she taught all
remember her fondly as being
a difference-maker-someone
who really made a difference in
their lives through encourage-
ment and genuine care," McRae
Now, it is hoped families in
the area can forge such relation-
shipi and show genuine care for
children iii the Loit, Foothills of
Kenya through Gina's Kids, a
ministry that allows families to
sponsor a child and enable him
or her to go to school.
"That's what we're trying to
do with Gina's Kids," Brown
said. "It's not just sending mon-
ey over there so kids can go to

children Morgann and Colton to her left.

school, but establishing a rela-
tionship between the families
here in (the area) and the children
in Kenya so they can be mentors
and carry on what Gina did with
her 'kids.'"
Attending school is not man-
datory in the area, and every
school charges tuition. Children
who have one parent or no par-
ents have no chance to receive an
education and make better lives
for themselves.
Brown talked of one child-a
boy-who is up, for adoption.
The child's father died, leaving
behind six wives and 64 children.
That is an'extreme example,
Brown said, but the point is that
any family without a husband

and father basically equates to
a family with no income. No in-
come means no chance of going
to school.
A female child, especially,
faces a bleak future without and
education, Brown said.
"Without education, obvious-
ly, children have very little future
in Kenya or anyplace else in the
world," Brown said, "but espe-
cially in Kenya when it comes to
females. If they don't have an ed-
ucation or training, what they're
looking at is to be traded away
for cattle most likely and to be
some guy's fifth or sixth wife."
The cost of sending a child
to school for one year varies on
the school he or she attends, but

McRae said tuition starts off at
$50 for preschool, $255 for el-
ementary school and $450 for
secondary school. Brown said
children who attend secondary
schools are boarded .there, so the
cost involved covers the cost of
housing, feeding and clothing the
Brown said people who agree
to adopt a child are asked to com-
mit to the child for one year, but
they are certainly encouraged to
enter into a long-term commit-
"We're hoping that the people
who are doing this will find it so
rewarding that they will continue
on after the first year and make
a commitment to the child, es-

tablishing a relationship with the
child," Brown said.
A commitment to children is
what Frazee had before life for
her and her family took a sudden

"The disease came out of no-
where. There was absolutely no
forewarning at all."
Those were McRae's' words
as he thought back to when his
sister-in-law was diagnosed with

colon cancer in June 2009. Just a
short while prior to that, Frazee
was experiencing some pain in
her side and running a low-grade
fever, but nothing prepared her
and her family for the reality of
colon cancer and the fact that it
was in its most advanced stage.
"When the disease was diag-
nosed, it was already basically
terminal-stage four colon can-
cer," McRae said. "It had spread
to both sides of her liver. When it

was diagnosed, the tumor was so
large that it actually was on the
verge of perforating her colon.
"It was bad."
Frazee already proved to be a
survivor in life-she and her sis-
ter Tina were born six weeks ear-
ly to parents who were unaware
of the fact they were even having
twins. The twins weren't given
much chance for survival, weigh-
ing less than 4 pounds each.
The twins, though, did survive,
growing up in Bradford County
and attending Southside Elemen-
tary School, Bradford Middle
School and then Bradford High
School. They went to St. Johns
River College together and both
became teachers, with Tina
McRae working with elemen-
tary school students and Frazee
working with high school stu-
dents. Frazee taught business at
the Bradford-Union Area Career
Technical Center before moving
to Keystone Heights Jr.-Sr. High
It is a testament to Frazee's
love of teaching that she didn't
let cancer stand in her way of.
continuing to go to school and
being there for her students. Bill
McRae said her demeanor and
outlook proved to be uplifting,
even in a time of sadness.
S"She was very strong and
brave, and positive to the very
last breath," McRae said. "It was
so inspiring to be close to that.
It's not the kind of thing you can
forget. It was just amazing."
McRae said it was Brown who
came up with the idea of creating
a ministry that would embody
the spirit of Frazee and carry on
her legacy..Brown said it is a
ministry his sister would approve
of, though she probably wouldn't
want her name attached to it.
"Truly, I'd say she'd be very
happy about it," Brown said,
"but probably embarrassed be-
cause she was so modest."
McRae said, "I can see her

Gina's House, Gina's School
and God's House are the other
ministries underthe Gina's Bless-
ings umbrella. Gina's House will
be an orphanage in Chad with an
initial goal of housing 100 chil-
dren, Brown said.
Brown, who is familiar with
the area because of ministry work
through his church-Lake Area
Bible Church in Melrose-said
many children live on the streets
because they have no parents or
they run away from home be-
cause life on the streets is actu-
ally better than what they have
at home, where there may be no
food and support, and parents
who are on drugs.
"They find it better at 5 or 6
to live in the street," Brown said.
"They can do things for food
so at least they don't starve to
Land to build Gina's House on
has been donated. Fundraising for
the remainder of the project will
begin soon, Brown said, adding
that some international service
organizations may be able to pro-
vide matching funds.
"There"s a potential where we
can get this done and get it done
quickly," Brown said.
Gina's School is an adilt
literacy program in the Loita
foothills of Kenya that began
in January, while God's House
will focus on building churches
in the area. Through his own ex-
periences, Brown said the people
of Kenya have a desire to go to
church, There just aren't many
physical structures for them to
meet in. The last time Brown
took a trip to Kenya, he partici-
pated in a Wednesday worship
service under a tree.
"They've been meeting under
that same tree for five years,".
Brown said.
Wednesday night services may
be the norm here in the U.S., but
Wednesday services in Kenya
begin at 1 p.r. due to safety is-
sues people face walking to and
from church at night:
Brown said some people
walked two hours one way to at-
tend church. He said there was a
woman with braces on both of

I her legs and walking with the aid
Sof crutches who made her way up
Sthe hill that led to the tree where
; the service was held.
The service, by the way, lasted
I approximately four hours.
"I'm in awe-just totally awed
by the faith and religious con-
viction of these people," Brown
r said. "There are people who have
absolutely nothing in life. They
don't know oftentimes where the
next meal is coming from, but
they will break out and sing the
gospel in loud voices and have the
biggest smiles of anyone you've
ever seen or experienced."
Brown said there are five
Christian congregations in' that
particular area of Kenya. The
goal is to provide each one with
an actual church building.
"They don't have to worship
just under the trees," Brown
The fact that they do, though,
and that they walk so far to do
so makes quite an impression on
him, Brown said. In that same
vein, Frazee made quite an im-
pression on others during her
life. Because of that, Brown is
hopeful people in turn will do
their part to make an impression
on others through Gina's Kids
and Gina's Blessings.
"There are a lot of people who
stepped forward and helped Gina
.and her family during her illness,
who provided food, transporta-
tion and fellowship," Brown
said. "Everyone I've spoken to,
it's not just lip service. They tru-
ly felt they got more out of the
relationship and more out of the
giving than what they gave.
"I fully expect the families (in
the area), if they invest them-
selves in this program, will get
more out of it than what they're
giving. You'll have blessings on
both sides of the world."

ings, you may call Lake Area

McRae said a relationship has
been established with a pastor in
Kenya who verifies that all the
information concerning poten-
tial Gina's Kids adoptees and
the schools donations will allow
them to attend is correct. Also,

Zimbabwe was being considered as a site for building an orphanage and a church
before efforts were focused on Kenya, but hopes are to still address the needs in
Zimbabwe at some point in time.

Residents record memories of days gone by for project

Regional News Sports Editor

Library shelves are full of his-
tory, so what better place to have
a community's members speak
of days gone?
The Bradford County Public
Library hosted three county resi-
dents-Buster Rahn and husband
and wife Arthur and Minnie Red-
ding-on June 14 in a Friends of
the Library effort to record and
preserve county history by al-
lowing its members to share their
memories. Rahn and the Red-
dings were specifically asked by
Friends of the Library president
Jim Bloodworth, who served as
event moderator, to talk of the
time just before America's in-
volvement in World War II, the
days of the war and the time im-
mediately following."
Bloodworth began the event
by asking the trio about the year
1938, but memories and inci-
dences from before that time
were also shared, including the
state of the roads and what trav-
eling was like. Bloodworth said
a man in Lake Butler told him
that it rankled residents of Lake
Butler and what would eventu-
ally become Union County that
the county courthouse of what
.was all Bradford at the time was
located in Starke. Making a trip
to Starke and back on a "rutted,
sand road" was a two-day affair.
"If your mule was pulling a
wagon, it was .a one-day trip to
get that 15 miles," Bloodworth
said.."Then you had to spend the
night and take another one-day
trip to get home."
Rahn said he felt certain
his grandparents who lived in
Worthington Sprirtgs were all for
the creation of Union County in
1921 due to that trip.
"In 19191 believeitwas, bank
failed in Lake Butler," Rahn said.
"My grandpa lost $800. That was
a pretty good chunk of money
in those days, so he didn't trust
banks-anymore. Up until 1921, it
was Bradford County. The court-
house was in Starke. When my
grandparents paid taxes, they'd
.get in their buggy and take a day
drive to Starke, get up the next
ftlrning and go pay their taxes in
cash, and then go back home the
: next day.
"I'm sure my grandparents, in
1921, voted to separate Bradford
into two (counties). I'm sure of
Rahn shared some facts about
roads, saying that he believed
that S.R. 100 from. Lake Butler
to Starke was paved in 1928 and
that the stretch of S.R: 121 that
ran through Worthington Springs
was paved at the same time. He
said S.R. 121 between Raiford
:and Macclenny was paved in
SIn 1938, most of the roads in
Bradford County were unpaved.
"At every entrance to Starke-
Sall around town-they had cattle
gaps," Rahn said. "The town was
fenced. It had cattle gaps to keep
the cows out of town because we
had free range. The free range
came to an end in 1948 when.
Fuller Warren was governor.
Tuller Warren took the cows
,off the road and gave us a sales
The Great Depression was in
its latter stages, and times were
tough, Rahn said.
"People on the farms bought
from the stores things they
couldn't raise," he said, "but ev-
erybody had plenty to eat."
Minnie Redding said her fam-
ily was just like every other fam-
ily at the time.
"We were poor, but we had
plenty to eat," she said. "I was
never barefoot."
It was a large family Redding
was part of.
"My mother lost her husband
and had five children," she said.
"My father lost his wife. He had
four children. He proposed to
Mama by saying, 'If you will
cook for my four, I will work for
' your five.' They had nine (chil-
dren) when they started off. Then
they had five (together). I was in
that five.
"I didn't realize I grew up in a
mixed family because there was
so much love there."

Redding remembers the fam-
ily canning foods and sharing
meat with others so it would not
go to waste.
"We had no refrigeration, so
when Daddy would butcher a
beef, they would take sacks and
tie dp bundles of meat," Redding
said. "Everybody in the commu-
nity got a bundle of beef. When

"That was our way of preserv-
Redding remembers how some
spending money could be earned
by picking strawberries. Pickers
would get paid 2.5 cents for each
one-quart basket. Arthur Red-
ding said he -made $1 a day on
his first job, and he didn't have
much more than that when he
and Minnie got married.
"He had $7 in his pocket,"
Minnie Redding said. "We mar-
ried in Lake Butler-at the court-
house in Lake Butler. He had $7.
What would young people do
this day if they started off with
Rahn said he used to pick
beans in the fields, which would
earn one 10 cents per hamper.
"You could work hard all day
long," Rahn said. "You could
pick eight hampers. I mean, it
broke your back. You could get
eight hampers. You could make
80 cents a day."
That money earned could go
toward purchasing the inr-thing at
the time.
"When I was a young teenager,
every year we thought we had to
have a pair of white shoes," Rahn
said. "That was the thing. We
worked. We'd pick beans to buy
a pair of white shoes. Tiere was
a store in town that sold white
shoes for $4."
Rahn would eventually go to
work at Camp Blanding, which
construction started on in late
It's existence and World War
II had quite an impact on the

A span of three months was

all it took for the population of
Starke to increase from 1,000
to 7,500, Bloodworth said. That
was due to the arrival of contrac-
tors involved in the construction
of Camp Blanding.-
Rahn said the traffic in present-
day Starke at the intersection of
U.S. 301 and S.R. 100 is nothing
compared to what traffic used to
be like on the road from U.S. 301
t6 Camp Blanding. Bloodworth
said he had been told it could
take up to an hour just to drive
from Starke .to Camp Blanding.
Rahn said it could, indeed, take
that long.
"You had a two-lane road that
was 18 feet wide," Rahn said.
"Going out to work in the mnorn-
ings, cars would be bumper to
bumper. If you found yourself in
the lefthand lane, between Starke
and Camp Blanding you'd meet
about three cars coming from
Blanding into Starke. You didn't
have to worry too much, but
sooner or later, you'd meet a cat.
You had to get back in line (in
the righthand lane).
"Nobody's going to let you
in. They're mad at you for being
over there (in the-lefthand lane)
to start with."
Rahn said one could merge
into that long line of traffic head-
ing to Blanding if driving an old
car like he did and easing over
toward a brand new car in line.
"He would stop," Rahn said.
"He would slow down to let you
Rahn said he worked as a mill
timekeeper, making $35 a week.

"They gave me a $20 bill, a
$10 bill, two $2 bills, 50 cents
and a dime and a nickel because
35 cents was taken out for Social
Security," he said.
The draft and American's full
involvement in the war after the

bombing of Pearl Harbor added
to the congestion Starke and the
surrounding areas faced. Every
available space was utilized, or
as Minnie Redding described it,
"Every little spot that could be
added to rent out to the soldier
"They lived in tents. They
lived in porches that had been
walled in to make 'apartfients,'"
Bloodworth said. "They had

when Pearl Harbor was bombed.
He heard the news on the radio
in his car.
"I went immediately to Jack-

disapr iintcd that I i ill nor get to

Lreatt at the school. Ouir loh est-

learning gains on this past year's
I CAT, our enrollment was up by
about 80 stu centss litoi the previ-

significantly "educed, fights were
almost nonexistent, and we had a
positive and respectful campus.
I have never made it a secret
that I believe that before Bradford
fligh School can make signifi-
cant academic gains, we must get
the students and staff to believe
in themselves. Building this be-

.time than the district administra-
tion was willing to invest. This
Year completed my 10'h year in
.administration and anyone with
any experience knows that sys-
temic change takes time. District
administration lacks that experi-
ence and understanding.
District administrators are
transfixed on test scores and test
scores alone. They fail to under-
standt the need to build commu-
nity on the campus. They fail to
understand that our students are
much more than scores on some
test. The responsibility of school
leadership is to address all those
factors at the same time. I am
sorry that they don't understand
I can only hope that the voting
community realizes that any fail-

'Our' park?
Dear Editor:
I have never been so upset
with what is going on in our town
as I was last year, until 1 found
out they are going to do this ev-
ery year! Charging for children
to play in our local park? I travel
all over the world for a living and
never have I seen people have to
pay to play at a city park, or a
County park for that matter.
What has the world come to?
Or should I say our public of-
ficials in Keystone come to?
Do they want children to, sit at
home and watch TV or play on
the computer? What about the
epidemic of childhood obesity
that is so prevalent in the United
I stopped by the town hall
building and asked what was
going on last year, and was ad-
vised that the decision to charge
our children to play in our public
park was voted on by "the pub-
Jic," and that the money was used
to pay for toilet paper, lights and
clean-up. I have since found out
that the decision was approved

as well as aiming to facilitate
solutions-based collaboration
by encouraging networking and
open dialogue among members
of Florida's small-farms
Additionally, the conference is
an excellent vehicle for increasing
awareness of Florida's small-
farms industry, which organizers
accomplish by actively marketing
to decision-makers, supporting
institutions and agencies, and
other agricultural professionals.
The conference has been
successful since its inaugural
year and is attended by a wide
range of interested parties: small-
family, transitional, beginning
and experienced farmers;
allied-industry representatives;
educators; researchers; policy-
makers; small-farm commodity
associations: foundations; and
others interested in continuing to
strengthen Florida's small-farm
community. The majority of
attendees and exhibitors return to
subsequent conferences.
The conference .- is an
outstanding opportunity for.
Florida's small farmers to hear
noted experts speak about the
latest science and research
relevant to their industry while
networking with other small
farmers in a relaxed atmosphere,
and sampling locally grown
foods..Florida's small farmers
find that, in this forum, their
diverse experiences, coupled
with their universal challenges
(economics, regulatory pressures,
marketing. etc.). create a unique
opportunity for collaborative
problem solving and resource

by the council, not the public.
Well. shame on whomeLer
voted to charge for \what our tax
dollars should cover. The person
who sits and takes money from
children has to be paid minimum
wage (at least), and during the
week, I don't think an average of'
eight people an hour are walking
through the gate. So exactly how\
much money is the park making
for toilet paper, lights and clean-
up? Why is this during the sum-
mer months only, when children
are out of school and need a place
to go? What is next -charg-
ing to go to the library? We as a
community volunteered our time
and money to build this park, the
county sends the corrections de-
partment to clean the park. and
let me say thank you to them for
doing such a great job. So please
tell us how much money does it
cost for toilet paper and lights
and once again, this community
will rally together and collect the
amount so children have a safe
and free place to play!
Please send a letter to our may-
or, or call 352-473-4807, if you
are as upset as I am.

became upset and said she could
not get her check until she had
worked until a specific date.
"Well, I wasn't but 17 years
old," Redding said."'All I knew
to do was cry."
She walked downstairs after
being rejected. One of the floor-
workers asked wh4t had hap-
pened. When Redding relayed
her story, the floorworker rang
a bell. That brought the boss out
to ask what was going on. The
floorworker replied that neither
sJhe nor the other women who
worked at the store would do
their work until Redding got her
"Everybody who worked in
:that dime store was a soldier
boy's wife," Redding said. "I got
:good cooperation."
SRedding boarded a train at 1
p.m. on a Saturday and arrived
; in Jacksonville at approximately
7 a.m. Monday. From there, she
took a bus to-Lawtey.
While Arthur Redding was
serving his country, Minnie Red-
ding wrote him every day.
"I never forgot that because I
can tell you right today what his
serial number was-34543698,"'
Minnie Redding said.
The war brought rationing of
various items, from gasoline and
tires to meat and cigarettes.
"A lot of people started smok-
ing cigarettes who had never
smoked them before simply
because they were rationed,"
Bloodworth said.
SBloodworth said a lot of old
Model A Fords were on the road
at the time due to the rationing of
gas. The cars could run off most
'anything with a bit of explosive
power, "whether it was moon-'
shine whiskey or kerosene,"
Bloodworth said. "You saw more
of those on the roads during the
heights of rationing than you did
before the war. Nobody. could
afford those big V8 engines be-
cause they supposedly used too

home runs. She had 20 RBI.
Also earning first-team honors
were Keystone's Kelsey Waters
and Union's Ashlyn Harden,
both of whom are rising juniors.
Waters, who also pitched, was
selected as an all-area outfielder
after batting .386 with four dou-
bles, six triples, two home runs
and 20 RBI. Harden, an infield-
er, batted .582 with 15 d6ubles,
three triples, one home run and

Minnie Redding said she did
without one particular item that
was rationed so that her mother
could enjoy it.
"I quit coffee," she said. "1 had
the headaches from lack of cof-
fee for a long, long time, but I!
could not stand to see my mother
live without coffee."
Rahn said in order to buy
toothpaste or shaving cream, you
had to turn in the empty tubes.
"You had to turn one in to get
a new one," he said. "If you lost
yours, you fihd a problem until
you could find somebody who
would let you have one."


Several other topics were dis-
cussed during the evening, in-
cluding making clothes, washing
clothes and making cane syrup.
Minnie Redding, who is well
known for her quilting skills,
talked about sewing her first-
ever dress at the age of 12.
"That dress I made was from a
newspaper pattern," she said. "I

Redding said she used to uti-
lize feed sacks to make clothing
and talked of making shirts for
her sons. When hbr oldest son,
Lonnie, got ready to leave school
in Lawtey and begin the 10th
grade in Starke, Redding bought
him some shirts. She said she did
it so the school children in Starke
wouldn't look down on her son.
"He said, 'Why did you buy
mine?' I said, 'Well, I didn't
think you'd want to wear a home-
made shirt to the Starke school.'
He said, 'Mama, I'll wear your
shirts anywhere."
S"That made me feel real good,"
Redding said.
Redding and Bloodworth talk-
ed about washing clothes over
a fire in pots. Redding said she
always found it odd that lard-
mixed with lye--was used to
make soap.
"My mother and her sister,
they would have days they made
soap, and they would use this
big, old syrup board to cook that
lard in," Redding said. "It ended
up being soap."
Bloodworth said, "That's good

Pub,,c A1.,r.;

In earl\ 2000. during a meeting
\with Gov. l.a ton Chiles. Maj.
Gen. Ronald Harrison-then the
adjutant general of Florida-\was
asked by the governor if he had
heard about a program sponsored
by. the National Guard Bureau
whose goal was to help at-risk
kids. The program \ as called the
Youth Challenge, and Maj. Gen.
Harrison was very familiar with
it. At that time, the Florida Na-
tional Guard was waiting on final
authorization from the National
Guard Bureau to start its own
Youth Challenge program.
Based on the results the pro-
gram was having in other states,
Harrison knew that by bringing
the program to Florid;, lie could
give young adults throughout the
state an opportunity to change
and improve their lives. Devel-
oped by the National Guard Bu-
reau with a focus on instilling
some of the same basic leader-
ship and discipline skills that
guide soldiers in their personal
and professional careers, the pro-
gram was unique because it also
provided teens with academic
instruction and skills they could
take with them into the job mar-

Youth Challenge program was
not good, it wouldn't have lasted
10 years."
The graduation marked the
completion of a rigorous five-
and-a-half month in-residence
phase at Camp Blanding, which
is followed by a 12-month, post-
residential phase where each stu-
dent is assigned a mentor who
provides personal guidance and
support. Of the 158 cadets who
started in January, 135 graduated,
making Florida's program one of
the best in student retention and
graduation in the nation.
During the graduation ceremo-
ny, the program's deputy direc-
tor, Command Sgt. Maj. (Ret.)

staff members who have been
with the Youth Challenge Acad-

for their critical roles in making
it a success. Among them was

Now, four years later, Ray
can claim a first of her own-
she recently became the first
female to graduate from the
Avenger Master Gunner
"It's a great accomplish-
m4ent in my career," said Ray,
Who works full time for the
Florida National Guard in
Sarasota. "I'm proud to be
:called a master gunner and to
be able to take that knowledge
to my soldiers."
The Avenger Master Gun-

a non-commissioned officer
to function as the unit's mas-

master gunners are crucial to
the success of the unit's train-

in 2009-10 to provide
air defense for the
nation's capital. The
Florida National Guard
regularly supports this
mission, which pro-

ability to the unit,"
said Capt. Michael
Wetter, commander of Battery

currently has more trained
master gunners than any other

Golfing for

A golf tournament was
held June 18 at the Starke
Golf and Country Club to
benefit the Lake Region
Community Theater.
SThe team that won the

With severe drought conditions
and wildfires occurring across
Florida, the St. Johns River Wa-
ter Management District's Gov-
erning Board today commended
homeowners, businesses and in-
dustry for practicing year-round
water conservation, thereby re-
ducing the potential for drought
impacts to drinking water sup-
Rainfall is currently between
seven and 24 inches below nor-
mal for the past 12 months in
northeast and east-central Flori-
da. Despite recent isolated rains,
most of the region is experienc-
ing moderate to severe drought
conditions. Current groundwater
levels in some areas of the Flori-
dan aquifer are approaching re-
cord lows set in the 2000-2001
drought. Lake levels also are
experiencing declines in many
District staff members regular-
ly monitor rainfall, lake and well'
levels, and updated information
is presented monthly to the Gov-
erning Board.
"While the data paints a rather
grim picture of our current hy-
drologic conditions, the good
news is that districtwide irriga-
tion restrictions and more ef-
flcient water use by the public
are helping to protect our water
resources from harm, as well
as delay-perhaps avoid-wa-
ter shortages," said G9verning
Board Chairman Leonard Wood.
"We recognize the seriousness
of drought conditions on water
supplies, and making an extra ef-
fort to conserve water now may
avoid more short-term irrigation
restrictions to deal with drought
impacts, should the traditional
rainy season be delayed."
The district has the statutory
responsibility of implementing
water shortage restrictions when
water supplies are inadequate to
meet needs, though water sup-
ply utilities may enact additional
restrictions for their customers
when their facilities cannot meet
peak demand periods. At this
time, no water supply utilities
have reported problems access-
ing water supplies under the cur-
rent hydrologic conditions.
Local government watering re-
striction ordinances and enforce-
ment efforts and utilities' conser-
vation programs have also been
instrumental in minimizing the.
drought's impacts on water sup-
plies, Wood said.
The district's conservation
efforts are aimed at preventing
wasteful use of water and harm
to Florida's water resources. The
agency promotes year-round
conservation through its manda-
tory landscape irrigation restric-
tions, which help to ensure the
efficient use of water for lawn
and landscape irrigation.
During Daylight Saving Time
(second Sunday in March until
the first Sunday in November),
irrigation is limited to no more
than two days per week on sched-
uled days.
Residential irrigation is al-
lowed on Wednesday and Sat-
urday at addresses that end in an
odd number or have no address.

Residential irrigation is al-
lowed on Thursday and Sunday
at addresses that end in an even
Nonresidential irrigation is
allowed on Tuesday and Friday.
SIrrigation is prohibited be-
tween 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
